1/17/2016 ~ Invisible Tears


Darkness suffers with no place to hide.
So many things touch a heart that the
extent is virtually unfathomable.
Hidden in the open is all that we are.


Yet man is born to trouble, As the sparks fly upward. ~ Job 5:7
┗► We all begin in a swirl of blind nakedness.  

The fire of life sparks inconceivable rebellion
if not tempered by the fear of God.

Our break from God is a test of free souls to return or to revolt.
In a realm of darkness, only His pure light of love
is able to uncover us, as He calls for us to come
out of the pit of conceit and self-deception.


                                                                           ┏► Grief wells up from the deepest of drains.  
You have laid me in the lowest pit, In darkness, in the depths.
~ Psalm 88:6


... The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. ~ Psalm 18:28
Our hope is our light. ◄┛                                                 

Inhumanity often plunges one into the despair of inequality.
Without something higher than self, the decent is bottomless.
A true question is, "What is one in to?"


My tears have been my food day and night, ... ~ Psalm 42:3

You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book? ~ Psalm 56:8

                                    ┗► He knows all of our sufferings.

Faith is always challenged under the weight of living.
Gravity is literally a return to nothingness;
suction into the darkness.


... men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die,
and death will flee from them. ~ Revelation 9:6


Anguish showers gloom empty of the enlightened carefree life.
Suicidal thoughts lie on the brink of misery.


... night be ended?' For I have had my fill of tossing till dawn.
~ Job 7:4


I am weary with my groaning; All night I make my bed swim; ...
~ Psalm 6:6


Oneís thoughts brings about
either longsuffering plagues or brilliant journeys.


Our heart's desire describes our feelings. ◄┓             
"... because of the fear which terrifies your heart, and because
of the sight which your eyes see." ~ Deuteronomy 28:67


Fear destroys peace.

... fear involves torment. But he who fears
has not been made perfect in love. ~ 1st John 4:18


Love transcends eternal dimensions.

Why is light given to him who is in misery, And life to
the bitter of soul, Who long for death, ... ~ Job 3:20-21


Misery holds no wealth.

... by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. ~ Proverbs 15:13

Pain has no shortage of flavors.

Unspeakable heinous acts inflict more than vomiting pictures
can display. Many live in sterile bubbles oblivious to the heart
wrenching truths others cringe in. Hate knows no color.


My friends scorn me; My eyes pour out tears to God. ~ Job 16:20

The world is filled with animosities
whose bite is felt closest from those you know.


... my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
My heart within me is distressed. ~ Psalms 143:3-4

                                         ┗► Gasping upon breathless ache.  

Everyone is alone and without God,
loneliness is a self inflicted disease.

The faithless have no hope. With nothing to worship,
oneís chasm develops into an annoyance with all.
Self-serving has little understanding.

One chooses Angel Island on the horizon, or
Alcatraz approaches for those imprisoned in blindness.
The worst thing in life is to live a life without accepting God.


... pangs of Sheol laid hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow.
~ Psalm 116:3


There is no escape from the pits that surround all flesh.
Desperation can be a sinking boat filled with horrific worries
of griefís misfortune producing woes of distressing anxiety.

Without relying on the eternalness of God
the deepest of comforts goes missed.


Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you
disquieted within me? Hope in God; ... ~ Psalm 42:11


You are wearied in the length of your way; Yet you did not say,
'There is no hope.' You have found the life of your hand; ... ~ Isaiah 57:10


It is hope and faith in God that lifts a soul into the light of salvation.
Apathy descends upon the hopeless.
Grief is overwhelming without love.
Purpose of heart directs life.


... not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who
have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.
~ 1st Thessalonians 4:13


Sorrow dwells most prominently where there is no hope.
~ The hopeless can be numb to love ~


But I am poor and sorrowful; Let Your salvation,
O God, set me up on high. ~ Psalm 69:29

\     |     /
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
~ James 4:10


We all have miseries in our bosom
that we are unable to hold alone.
Death would consume us for lack of strength.
Christ carries each one of us on the blood of His golden love.


... Sorrow is better than laughter, For by a sad countenance
the heart is made better. ... ~ Ecclesiastes 7:2-4


Sorrow deepens understanding and
touches the marrow of oneís soul.
Only pursuing limitless pleasure,
oh dumb stumble to their own demise.

God looks for a reflective humble heart.


For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation,
not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.
~ 2nd Corinthians 7:10

                                      Death

To know or to cling only to the
outward world, or the vapors of what can be seen,
leaves one completely searching on near empty.
God is greater than time.
Times gone by remain in a dustless past
where unreasonable stuck hearts decay.
Life is solely in the present, and unimpressed is
impulseís desperation ignoring this truth of wisdomís light,
~ whose source is God.  

To live in a gripeless moment is a challenge for all especially
without knowing Godís own love calling for us to come.
Self destruction comes from a lack of faith in His truth.


"Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God." ~ Matthew 5:8

The purist of godly insight leads to vision beyond physical pain.
Seeing God releases oneís spirit to rise above the mundane.
True Faith is a matter of eternal choice beyond requiring convincing.
Sad or glad, we are all one in Him.


Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness;
He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. ~ Psalm 112:4


It is in His qualities of goodness
that we are able to endure the darkness.


● Born to trouble
● Many long for death
● There is no fear in love
● Perfect love cast out fear
● Fear involves torments
● Sorrow of heart breaks the spirit
● Sorrow can hold no hope
● Hope in God and Praise Him - it heals the soul
● Be humble in the Lord and He will lift you
● Sadness makes a heart wiser
● Godly sorrow produces repentance
● Repentance leads to salvation knowing His Purity
● Sorrow of the world leads to death

Faith is the ability to forge ahead in the face of human conflicts.
Our sorrows uncover our deepest desires.

Darkness renders nothing to offer.
It is the tears of our heart that reveals truth of self.
What we cry for tells our tale.


                                                      ┏► Life is for the living.  
Weep not for the dead, nor bemoan him;
Weep bitterly for him who goes away, ... ~ Jeremiah 22:10


Counter intuitive is what we mourn for, those gone before.
God instructs us to rather mourn for those who do not know Him.
Weep for the children whose quagmire is ignorance
and home is called oblivion.


"... now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again?
I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me."
~ 2nd Samuel 12:22-23
        
                                            Evidence that there is no reincarnation.

Truth shines above illusions.
Life is for the living and this is where our concerns should be
focused. No one can capture what is already done and long gone.
~ We return to God where all judgment ends.  


For in much wisdom is much grief, And he who
increases knowledge increases sorrow. ~ Ecclesiastes 1:18

    ┗► Knowledge is the root of wisdom. ◄┓
... it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge, ...
~ Proverbs 19:2-3


The wisest souls have the deepest insights in suffering.
We are fading shadows in view of His eternal Light.
Those most knowledgeable are often the most despised.
Fools swim in hopeless turmoil loathing all.
It is man that curses man, not God.


... the sufferings of this present time are not worthy
to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
~ Romans 8:18


No matter intensity of affliction,
brilliant timelessness will unfold for each who endure in Him.


For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working
for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, ...
~ 2nd Corinthians 4:17-18


God searches for our true character under wanting
and how we respond to not having.


Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, ... ~ Isaiah 65:14
┗► In service one is served.           

Delight in ones hope is not diminished
by those whose only outlook is misery.
One either chants or squawks in the walk of life.
Moreover, oneís eye is on the eternal prize of living
or spirit is overwhelmed for fear of the onslaught of man.


                 Endurance refines the fibers of character. ◄┓
... Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure;
~ 1st Corinthians 4:12


As the despicable parade by audaciously,
eternity emboldens our resolve.

Finding hope gives our hands work to do.


If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. ... ~ 2nd Timothy 2:12

God is greater than man.

... not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, ...
~ Philippians 1:29


"And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me
is not worthy of Me." ~ Matthew 10:38


Faith is not a construct of conjecture
doubting the authenticity that He is God.
Suffering is an awakening to the approaching distant shore.


We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are
perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; ...
~ 2nd Corinthians 4:8-9


Things may not always be easy,
but He promises that through our committed faith,
we will rise above the bottom.


In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me? ~ Psalm 56:11


For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the
victory that has overcome the world - our faith. ~ 1st John 5:4


Again, it is God that lifts us to be greater than we are.
A Faith in Trust overcomes temporary sufferings.
Hope inspires our faith, trust matures it.


Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. ... ~ James 5:13

"Hear my prayer, O LORD, And give ear to my cry;
Do not be silent at my tears; ..." ~ Psalm 39:12


Our instructions from God are to pray and sing; to find solace
in Him with our praise for Him. In this each one of us, utterly alone,
finds that which cannot be given, by any other than God Himself,
~ an inner sanctuary resting upon Him.


Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy. ~ Psalm 126:5

... Blessed are you who weep now, For you shall laugh.
~ Luke 6:21


Do we have a needful spirit for God repenting of wrong doings?

For they shall be comforted." ~ Matthew 5:3-4

Those who extend to God, in view of heartache,
develop in the ease of His love. Hardships may not cease,
but His Glory of giving Grace settles the soul.

A sign of his coming truth is revealed in many who
in the midst of crying the hardest burst into laughter.



                                          ┏► His essentialness remains beyond all known.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer
and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests
be made known to God; ... ~ Philippians 4:6-7


For what is coming, offered to each,
is greater than all the seas across timeís extent in space.


... if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy
- meditate on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8


His instruction for those in His light
is to dwell upon all that embraces goodness.
It is the candle of oneís true character.


He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord GOD
will wipe away tears from all faces; ... ~ Isaiah 25:8

                        ┗► Tears will cease as time evaporates.

And what is the price for eternity beyond misery?
His sacrifice and a confessing genuine faith with an
enduring giving heart of love rising above contempt.
Eternity is in the very moment in which we live.
To embrace or to despise.
Hope or hopelessness.


... For the LORD will be your everlasting light, And the days
of your mourning shall be ended. ~ Isaiah 60:20


This decaying universe is a staging ground
for an eternal reward above the material.


"... God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no
more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain,
..."~ Revelation 21:4


In a moment we will be changed in to something so magnificently
penetrating, knowing that it is God, indescribable emanations,
the source of our given life, by the will of His love, glories untold.


● Weep not for the dead, weep for those without a home
● We will again see those found in God
● Knowledge increases sorrows, yet it is good for a soul
● Only a fool frets against God
● All suffering falls short of the glory to be had in God
● Who we are prepares us for what is to come
● Servants of God are best able to endure suffering
● Accepting His salvation is part of salvation
● Believing in Jesus invites the criticism of the worldly
● Trust in God protects us from the abuses of man
● Faith knows we are of God, Ponder on all that is good
● Prayer & gratitude connects one to the peace of God
● All suffering will cease upon His appearing

It is the way that it is.

2/21/2016 ~ Hope


hope1am.mp3 (45m 38s)                         hope2pm.mp3 (54m 54s)
  

Darkness succumbs to light.
Hope is the heart of mortal life.


"God, who made the world and everything in it, ..." ~ Acts 17:24-25

God commands the light over the darkness.
~ In His light He gives independent life.


... so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that
they might grope for Him and find Him, ... ~ Acts 17:26-27


His creation is such that He hopes
we will find Him for the greatness that He is.


"... for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your
own poets have said, 'For we are also His offspring.' ..." ~ Acts 17:28-29

                           
As offspring of God, our true nature is to reflect His righteous qualities.
- As for human nature in sin, more often than not, children rebel against  
their parents wishing autonomy from authority. It is clear that God wishes
for us to regain our senses, in our ability, to obediently live in Him forever.


"... He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has
ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead."
~ Acts 17:30-31


Time is such that it runs out.
His call to eternal life is an awakening in hope of His truth.

\     |     /
... waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected
to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; ...
~ Romans 8:19-20


The silver lining to reality is that a revealing is coming,
and especially for those that wait upon His ways.
God wants to know what we hope for.
True hope is a venue of return to the root of a single life
→ in Him and His eternal existent creation.


                                ┏► A higher way of life awaits.
... creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption
into the glorious liberty of the children of God. ... ~ Romans 8:21-22


Our individual risings await the telling of what life is to surely be.

... we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption,
the redemption of our body. ~ Romans 8:23


In the sorrow of captivity, we thirst for freedom beyond bondage.

For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope;
for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we
do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. ~ Romans 8:24-25


Knowing He has come offering life itself is a gift of grace beyond compare.

... and as a helmet the hope of salvation. ~ 1st Thessalonians 5:8
                                                         
This conscious hope in Him distinguishes the faith of a soul.
Our outward faith works hand in hand with our inner love
whereas hope lifts them both.

Concealed love is shown by actions supported by our hope.


... hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out
in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. ~ Romans 5:3-5

/    |    \                                                                                
Hope leads us through all suffering in view of His promise of love.
Doesn't hope often passionately burn upon one's heart?
Without hope the light of the heart dims.


God's Fishing Hook


It is Godís garden and He is cultivating life to live eternally with Him.
Suffering deepening endurance developing character
purifying hope is Godís fishing hook.


Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that
you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ~ Romans 15:13


His call is to live with an increasing hope that does not fade.
This is the belief that pounds upon a heart at peace in joy of Him.


... through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.
~ Romans 15:4


Dwelling upon His word edifies our hope. God left us a
road map with deep treasures so as to find our free hearts in Him.


... Those who go down to the pit cannot hope for Your truth. ~ Isaiah 38:18
              
... the hope of the hypocrite shall perish, ... ~ Job 8:13
  
For what is the hope of the hypocrite, Though he may gain much,
If God takes away his life? ~ Job 27:8


Hypocrites hold to selfishness with at best false hopes.
What we longingly desire for in anticipation of our wishes supposes upon an
expectant belief that our hopes will come true, and this is what lights our hearts.


The hope of the righteous will be gladness, ... ~ Proverbs 10:28

True hope lifts one joyously to the presence of God.

... the hope of the unjust perishes. ~ Proverbs 11:7

The end of all evil is to dangle in hopelessness.

But for him who is joined to all the living there is hope, ... ~ Ecclesiastes 9:4

Life is where death is not.

But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.
~ Psalm 71:14


Praise for Him goes hand in hand with hope.

... do not let me be ashamed of my hope. ~ Psalm 119:116

It is in knowing His word that strengthens a continuing life of hope.

My soul faints for Your salvation, But I hope in Your word. ~ Psalm 119:81
                                 
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, And in His word I do hope. ~ Psalm 130:5
                                                                                                   
Patience in coming salvation commands over those that would be rash.
We were created to gasp for salvation; groping for Him settles a soul.
Hope is the light of where we are going.


For in You, O LORD, I hope; You will hear, O Lord my God. ~ Psalm 38:15

"And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You." ~ Psalm 39:7

Faith is trust for that which cannot be seen.
For us hope is a languishing desire for more than we are.


Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes,
it is a tree of life. ~ Proverbs 13:12


Sorrows can hinder our hopes, yet the outcome remains.

... the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope
in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, ... ~ Psalm 33:18-19

┗► In His power we live.       

God watches each of us to see our resolve, in what we are.
His blessings wait for those uninhibited in the hope of His truth.


For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts
of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. ~ Jeremiah 29:11

↙    ↓    ↘      
The Lordís will is to offer salvation to all that would have it.
He offers hope that we will remain alive in Him.
Hope is a key to entering His kingdom.


Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the Lord. ~ Psalm 31:24


There comes a moment ~
where hope must commit to the surety of His truth.


"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
And whose hope is the LORD. ..." ~ Jeremiah 17:7-8


It is when hope mingles in trust that fear is purged.

Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,
Whose hope is in the LORD his God, ... ~ Psalm 146:5


Grounded in happiness comes from a content hope in Him.
The sands of time contain the wind of Godís own retrieving truths.


"... I hope in Him!" The LORD is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him. ~ Lamentations 3:24-26


Now faith is the substance of things hoped for;
the evidence of things not seen. ~ Hebrews 11:1


We all wait on a beach called time.
The quintessence of what we are rests on who we are and what we seek.
Waiting on the Lord has no measure for those that willingly wait.
All the world is a fool in the Fatherís light.


Hope: Creation of God
God hopes we want Him enough to find Him
God subjected creation to futility to expose hope
We are saved thru our stamina in an unseen hope
Hope is a cognitive act desiring salvation
Hope will not disappoint if patient thru troubles
Hope is a construct of the Holy Spiritís power
The word of God assists in obtaining true hope
The hopes of the unjust will perish
Our hope should be based in believing in Him
The watchful Lord hopes we seek peace over evil
Courageous hope strengthens the heart
Hope mingled in trust delivers His sure calm
He desires we seek Him patiently in hope

It is the shore of peace that our hope waits for.
Continuing hope forms an increasing Faith.
Increasing Faith holds growing hope.
We wait for the promise of His light.
Darkness holds no promise.
In His light we see.


... who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living
hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, ... ~ 1st Peter 1:3

\     |     /                                                               
Our living hope is one that embraces eternal life itself.

... who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us;
in whom we trust that He will still deliver us, ... ~ 2nd Corinthians 1:9-10


And to save us from death, He came to show us the way.

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, ... ~ Hebrews 6:19
                                                   ┗► We attach to the eternal chord of His love.  

Clearly pure access to His eternal light is before us in the truth He offers.
The question in each heart is, do you believe?
The answer to His call is a faith with hope.
↙    ↓    ↘                                          
... looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of
our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, ... ~ Titus 2:13


How wondrous it will be when our hope is realized in His appearing!
He asks that we individually seek out His truth. A most personal work over
simply being misled by man. It is a call and a quest for souls to find Him.


... if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty
and your faith is also empty. ~ 1st Corinthians 15:13-14

           
Skeptics will always scream, doubters will always doubt.
What is empty remains empty.


... For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen.
~ 1st Corinthians 15:15-16


To believe or not to believe
He has risen, to prove His love, confronts us all.
                                          
And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; ... If in this life only we have
hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. ~ 1st Corinthians 15:17-19


If Jesus Christ is just a charlatan, no hope survives.

But now Christ is risen from the dead, ... so in Christ all shall be made alive.
~ 1st Corinthians 15:20-22


But He has risen and this tells the tale of Godís redeeming force.
~ It is the living hope He has given to us.


                     Patience is His prerequisite to eternal life. ◄┓
But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward
those who are Christ's at His coming. ... ~ 1st Corinthians 15:23-26


It has been established that after the recovery of His loyal souls,
~ death will end.

Godís plan is time-honored to enable free souls to return ecstatically in Him.
When all rule, authority, and power over others ends, it
will be then that God truly will trust those whom remain.


... Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast
the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end. ~ Hebrews 3:6


And it is by His will that individual lives have been set,
to be welcomed for all those that remain righteous in Him.
To know we are part of Him is one of Godís goals that we come to realize.


... who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and
gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. ~ 1st Peter 1:20-21


For His desire is that we know Him for all that He is.
It is His promise of life that delivers our hope.


       ┏► Only a race finished gains the reward.
... each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope
until the end, that you do not become sluggish, ... ~ Hebrews 6:11-12


Struggles either refine commitment to endure
or weaknesses expose what will forever remain barred.
What we hope for is seriously looked at by God.


Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God
our Savior and the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope, ... ~ 1st Timothy 1:1

            Our hope is God. ◄┛

To see the light is in fact hope in Him.
He is our savior and hope unto eternal life.
Hope for God is the highest of all hopes.


... I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made by God ...
~ Acts 26:6-8


This world does not care for the word of God
because it removes supreme authority from man.
Those that unjustly condemn will stand condemned.


... be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be
brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; ... ~ 1st Peter 1:13


To prepare for what we will become is larger than anyone can offer.
Approaching grace is more than all time in space that merely dwindles away.
Our hope stands in the light.


... our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation
and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts ... ~ 2nd Thessalonians 2:16-17

It is in love of God that salvation rests upon her bosom.

~ Romans 12:12

                                                 
What touches the sky lifts us

for He who promised is faithful. ~ Hebrews 10:23


Only the strong maintain an exhilaration in what calls us out to care.
Hope is the freedom obtained in His love.


... work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus
Christ in the sight of our God and Father, ... ~ 1st Thessalonians 1:3

                           \    |    /
... that having been justified by His grace we should become
heirs according to the hope of eternal life. ~ Titus 3:7


Truly, our inheritance is to become children of God.
There is no inheritance for a lone renegade who does not consider God.


... that you may know what is the hope of His calling, ... ~ Ephesians 1:18-19

To fully understand is to know His saving grace powers over all.
This hope invites awareness to be in accord with His works.
Our hope is to be reunited entirely in Him.


There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called
in one hope of your calling; ... ~ Ephesians 4:4

                                                 
We are all born to ourselves.
The calling of God is to find Him and
to be justified by His ordained commands.
There are false hopes of man where imagination replaces His word.
Blowing yourself up in a crowded market does not bring the hope of a
thousand virgins. Lust engulfs the weak. Judging others rashly before
considering self judges oneself in the condemnation of His coming wrath.
If one cannot put contempt away, it will devour the soul at His revealing.


Angry fools have little power to wait. ◄┓                                                                            
For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
~ Galatians 5:5


In Him we find welcomed acceptance into His righteous sanctuary.

                                                     ┏► It is for forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life.
... always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason
for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; ... ~ 1st Peter 3:15

... because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you
heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, ~ Colossians 1:5


It is a destiny beyond time where flowers never die.

For surely there is a hereafter, And your hope will not be cut off.
~ Proverbs 23:18


For those of us that remain hopefully grateful, there will be no ending.

"I have hope in God, which they themselves also accept, that there will be
a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust." ~ Acts 24:15

God cares for those that would deny Him. ◄┛

It is certain that God will appear to each and every one of us.
Our pursuits and actions will declare whether one soars into the light
or falls into the abyss of darkness.


                                      Heaven is not composed of souls in isolation. ◄┓
For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the
presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming? ~ 1st Thessalonians 2:19

                     ↘
His kingdom holds all those that would gain the crown He gives.
Hope is not exclusive to self.

The kick is that we hope for each other in gaining eternal life.


... when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
~ 1st John 3:2-3


At His coming, those faithful will ignite upon His waves of light.
Those concealed in doubt will not unfold before Him.
By His power we are lifted into life.

Hope is a wonderful thing and it helps us on our path in union with eternal life.


And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
~ 1st Corinthians 13:13


Hope is our climb in faith to be eternally joined with His love.
Without hope faith is challenged to nurture the love that would inspire us.
One should not trivialize what one hopes for, for it is hope that writes upon
a believing heart. Misplaced hope can jeopardize our eternal lives in Him.
Hope is our rudder to eternity.

4/17/2016 ~ Instrument of Truth


truth1am.mp3 (50m 28s)                       truth2pm.mp3 (63m 05s)
  

It is in His absence that we cannot see. Life seeks the light.
Either truth is or it is not. Truth is not a construct of uncertainty.
Faith is an esoterical belief in what is yet to be, from an essence
that which cannot be seen, and for us, it involves the unknown future;
to reality that reaches out beyond us. Faith exists in the moment where
time has positioned each one of us. Choices in what one believes leads
to defining the truth of a soul. Are there certain instruments of truth?

It is said the pen is mightier than the sword.
Words can have the power of truth as well as that of deception.
Can the truth be erased; it certainly can be forgotten,
... even blurred, in the mind of man.


... Of making many books there is no end,
and much study is wearisome to the flesh. ~ Ecclesiastes 12:12


┏► Time constrains all souls to few undergoingís. 
The moment binds our spirit relinquishing all to inadequate experiences
in the face of the fullness of all that is. In the challenged memories of man,
can absolute truth change, or does itsí existence really matter?
There are those that declare it as irrelevant and inconsequential to
personal pursuits. Narrow visions of truth can be subjective short of
the larger complete picture. As mere men, we must be careful not to
belligerently dismiss greater truths as unreasonable. A simple truth is
that it is all greater than we are. For God to be real, absolute truth is
what establishes all reality upon His omnipotence. The only thing
certain for those that prefer ambiguity is a lack of clarity.
Doubt defeats all cowards. ◄┛                     

Our clarity of thought has been limited to that which is known.
Knowledge for us is an accumulation of experiences across
the ages of man. All thought falls short of what is or can be.
To be open for truth, one has to see the insignificance of
self in view of the unimaginable greatness of all that is.


... always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
~ 2nd Timothy 3:7


Godís absolute truth goes beyond what we can know.
Even a lie is still part of the truth as it is an occurrence.
Knowledge can never replace the value of understanding.
It is not the desire of God to have His creation deceive itself.
Since we cannot know absolute truth, God has endowed us with
the revelation of His truths allowing us to see by faith in His Word. God
has given us His truth to refute otherwise uncertain conjectures of man.
It is His goodness in mercy that stretches down from heaven to retrieve
all who would hear the call. In the midst of curious suffering, beyond what
any of us are able to fully comprehend, what has been given to each of us
is individual choice to be that we are as living in ďI am.Ē God desires that
salvation from tyranny may be grasped, by all that would seize it.
It is reaching out beyond the moment to something holier
than all that one could ever imagine to be, or become.
Paradoxically, larger than life is in the moment.

                                       ┏► Faith is belief in thought.
Faith is not something quantifiable. Faith is not taught, it is something
believed. Scholars may claim power, but learning upon learning has no
value without humble understanding. Finite rebellion has no place in
praising His greater than infinite creation. God is in control, not that
we are. What is more important, knowledge or truth? Life or death?
Mere knowledge without essential understanding is void of the wisdom
He calls out for in knowing His truths. He wants us to put it together in
all honesty, through the gift of consciousness, where awareness
becomes, to know that we are His created children.


                                      

Absolute Timeless Truth

                           



    
All that is Knowable
Certainty
in facts
of truth
by Humans
   


    



                    

    "Things We Donít Know"       
      
          

True intelligence cannot claim to know there is no God.
True intelligence confesses that there must be a God.


For Your mercy is great above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the clouds. ~ Psalm 108:4


Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
And His greatness is unsearchable. ~ Psalm 145:3


"God is not a man, that He should lie, ... ~ Numbers 23:19

Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. ~ Psalm 119:89

For the word of the Lord is right, And all His work is done in truth.
~ Psalm 33:4


Freedom screams across the order of His creation. ◄┓         
God has given the truth of creation to itself to freely become.
It is by His generous love that this commencement has occurred
for His living creatures to experience, on their own, as He does.
The Lord Himself is the supreme instrument of truth.
The light of the Lord touches each of us as we are open
to the expanse. The universe is given to itself to be real.


The entirety of Your word is truth, ... ~ Psalm 119:160

... His truth endures to all generations. ~ Psalm 100:5

It is His merciful word that allows us to soar
in spirit beyond the confines that entrap us.


The LORD is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth. ~ Psalm 145:18


The call is to call upon Him in truth of heart.
What higher ideal is that than to speak to God Himself?


Buy the truth, and do not sell it, Also wisdom
and instruction and understanding. ~ Proverbs 23:23


                       His righteous truth surpasses our drawbacks. ◄┓
To desire the truth is a higher calling that touches the sky.
It brilliantly reaches out tickling the imagination to thirst for more.
The desire for truth is a blessing upon the conscious and is a gift of God.
Truth is influentially remembered as lies are simply forgotten; innate to
our nature. Cherished is the strength of oneís presence over any misery
in disgust. Man has cruelly perpetrated man, not God. Freedom to be is
the consecration of life given by God. In His light, wisdom is obtained.
             Manifested in the depths of a soul. ◄┛


Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, ... ~ Psalm 51:6

It is from within where our souls become more than just a
passing moment. In the depths of feeling thought, life is realized.
God sees all that we are counting the heart beats of our breaths.
What is it that we cherish? We fall naked before Him.


Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; ... ~ Psalm 43:3

A good rule of thumb is to call out for His truth.
Only in submission to His will in truth may we heartfully see.
To be acceptable in His light, one must humbly call asking to come
to Him. To His tabernacle where something valuable has always been,
His holy loving light of life.


... Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, And
works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart; ... ~ Psalms 15:1-2


He who speaks truth declares righteousness, ... ~ Proverbs 12:17

... to God as being alive from the dead, and your members
as instruments of righteousness to God. ~ Romans 6:13


For one to embrace righteousness in the face of man and God,
it is not only crucial, but essential, to speak the truth. Those that
employ deception acquire death without question. Only a life grounded in
goodness is able to see the sure riches of God and benefit oneís fellows.
In truth, He calls for us to be instruments of righteousness, and we know
that to be righteous, the truth must be an active part of us.


"But let your Yes' be Yes, and your No, No. For whatever
is more than these is from the evil one." ~ Matthew 5:37


          ┏► Truth is Godís game plan.
The universe holds to the commands of God and we, as individual parts,
are called to be instruments of truth, in the very being that we are. To be
included as a legitimate player, one has to abide by the rules. In truth, it is
His creation, not ours. Deception comes by claiming that which is not, and
in the case of all that would fall from His grace in superiority to Him, the
farce of an unsubmitting soul living in denial, liars will die. The chains of
our bondage are of the earth and not of heaven. Maybe is not an option
in His coming judgment where absolute truth takes precedence.


"But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds
may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God." ~ John 3:21


"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
~ John 4:24


... who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
~ 1st Timothy 2:4


The light of God is present in all moments.
He waits to see if what we do is through Him, or is it something
else foreign to His will unwilling to hold to the nature of goodness.
God has subjected us in the futility of time temporarily, to reveal our true
inner character of spirit. Truth is where the spin stops here. He asks for
our presence in purity of heart. God is real and only accepts the same.
                                                            ┗► To be real or not to be real in God.


"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." ~ John 8:32

                            The power of clarity belongs to the Lord. ◄┓
God has enough scriptures concerning truth to make us doubly sure
about what He expects from His creation of life. The truth does not involve
hidden double standards, but is straight forward in the light. For those that
choose Him over self reap the rewards already. Great is His truth in truth.


Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. ... ~ John 14:6

"the Spirit of truth, ... but you know Him,
for He dwells with you and will be in you." ~ John 14:17


How grand that God Himself came to show us the way in truth through
Christ. It is finding the spirit of truth within that separates the godly from
the despicable. Honesty with self is a pillar of His kingdom. To deny Him
and the light of truth He offers is the travesty of the ignorant and stubborn
hearted. In truth, Jesus Christ is an instrument revealing Godís own truth.

Unbeknownst to many, the Spirit of truth
is with us all waiting upon each heart.


"... the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me."
~ John 15:26


... when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; ...
~ John 16:13-14


The Spirit of God touches all, whether if acknowledged or not. His truth
influences conscience of heart revealing the will of God among men.
It has been declared true by God; His word for us to know. Jesus foretells
the coming of His declarations, which we now have and find in the Bible.
His Spirit is witness to whether we are in His Spirit of eternal truth or not.
┗► What one thirsts exposes desire of spirit.            


"Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. ... ~ John 17:17-20

His sacrifice for all allows us to see from the inside where real truth
resides. Knowing we are all part in one in Him is stronger than anything
apart. No longer alone, we are with God Himself. God does not lie and to
be in accordance with His word, one must believe it was He who brought
His word together for us to know Him. He has declared this for us to know
His sanctified truth of Spirit inspired by His life, and not just the result
of mere writings from whimsical men. As of God, it is that it is,
once delivered for all those that would believe.


... the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
~ John 1:14


                     ┏► Light excels darkness revealing the truth of life.
The Lord brings light to our darkness so that we can know truth.
To behold the glory of His grace is truth in itsí purest openness.
We all wait for corruption to end in view of His incorruption.
God Himself has risen into our lives.


... welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God,
which also effectively works in you who believe. ~ 1st Thessalonians 2:13


It is not about believing anything and everything. ◄┓
Through the Spirit we are blessed to differentiate
between His truth and mere simpleton concoctions of man.
Fowl language and arrogance expose the intelligence of all fools.
Thank the Lord for His inspired truth that makes the spirit soar
in Him above all men. He is the fireworks of the heart.
              In brilliance of Word, He speaks for all to hear. ◄┛


But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious,
Longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth. ~ Psalm 86:15


God has reached down to touch us with His gloriousness.
We are not alone suffering in the pain of separation. As a Father
waits for the return of his child, so God calls to His children.
┗► He is longsuffering in the revealing of our hearts.                   


Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed.
Truth shall spring out of the earth, ... ~ Psalms 85:10-11


The truth of heaven has been revealed as God Himself has visited us.
Unsurmountable peace extends to all those who rise in Him. It is by our
example of faith that enlightens the angles and suppresses rebellion.


"... for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness
to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice." ~ John 18:37


God never intended to leave us in the darkness without a
way to return to His living truth in the light of His creation.
For those that love Him, we hear the ring of heaven.


Pilate said to Him, "What is truth?" ... ~ John 18:38

Torment plagues all liars. It takes courage to tell the truth and the
reward is great with a peace that can come by no other means or way.
Honor and integrity have no equal as they are the excellence of a soul.
Rebellion comes from those who are threatened by authority and search
for an escape with no reason other than spitefulness and or delusions of
power. An impatient heart is a nasty heart. Look at all the arguments
among men today, over truth, and how our unity breathlessly falls away
from us. Division is the nature of man, to the shame of our children.
Truth can be despicable when intermingled
with oppression without compassion.


... And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
~ 1st John 5:5-6


To understand the Holy Spirit and our relationship in God, one must
possess the quality of one of His greatest gifts to life, truth. And certainly,
that of truth, over creations of self deception. To be immersed in God is to
know His sacrifice of love is, so that life itself would be free to be free.
The Holy Spirit is in us when we freely & truthfully stand in love of others.
                ┗► Only those in honest hearts of truth shall be delivered.


Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that
we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. ~ James 1:18


Godís force is such that He calls for our return through the spirit of our
lives. Our choice is our destiny, in Him or not. God takes no pleasure in
the defiant that would spurn Him. He wills that we would be born in Him,
adopted to an eternal inconceivable and irrevocable inheritance.
The gifts given of the Holy Spirit are upon us all. ◄┛                   

It is in realizing that God has given each of us life that the truth
of His spirit is revealed. Jesus has sealed the terms of our salvation
for all those that would fully accept Him. Repent and be immersed in Him.
Stand as a breathing individual in Godís creation, knowing that His plan
has eternal purpose. He is in fact the one that carries us all. We are of
the rising dirt of the earth. We owe our lives to God, praise Him our
Lord Jesus Christ and blessings untold will unfold.

In truth, have you immersed your spirit in Jesus and the life God
would have for us? To accept Him lifts the soul beyond the mortal
and strengthens the spirit deepening the soul.


● God Himself is an instrument of truth
● The Word of God is an instrument of truth
● Jesus Christ is an instrument of truth
● The Spirit is an instrument of truth
● We are instruments of truth

The Spirit of truth is in our hearts.
Darkness holds no truth other than the absence of light.
There is no heart in darkness.

It is in the promises of His Word and declarations
of goodness that we surely find the truth of God.


This will be written for the generation to come,
That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD. ... ~ Psalm 102:18-20


Above all His Grace extends Mercy to all those who genuinely and
humbly cry out openly for Him in this most holy notion we bow to called
truth. Remember, He is greater than the extinguishing of time. It is in
truth, thoughts from His heart, that transcends all the generations.
He gives to those whose cry is freedom.


"The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together;
..." ~ Isaiah 40:5


"... grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever."
~ Isaiah 40:6-8


The Word of God is greater than any mere mortal man.
It is His word that instructs us. It is God, through His timeless being,
touching each generation with a call to come back in truth. Repeatedly,
He explains our futile situation in view of a greater glory.
Praise the Lord for the lesson found in grass.
We die to live.
            ┗► Salvation.
Surely the breath of God is given by the times in which we live.


"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser." ~ John 15:1

... He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit;
for without Me you can do nothing. ... ~ John 15:5-6


What is the truth of a flower? How did itsí seed come to be? Can
words express the fire of fragranceís color? Can the memory of love
pierce the present without a knowing heart? Are sentient beings more
than rising dust? God declares it is our choice to be part in Him or not as
we question what, and who, we are. In truth, we are nothing without God.
             Greater than fleeting nations is God. ◄┛


... Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O LORD; Let Your
lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.~ Psalm 40:11


The delicate beauty of life has no equal and we are ignorant to the
enormity of itsí colors. Who can claim the source of life in itsí infinite
perplexing wonders? We loudly and humbly need God so that we may
survive our collapsing deaths in the flesh. It is in the flesh that the true
nature of a soul is determined. His truth is such a special delicacy bringing
surviving nectar as we precariously navigate unknown devouring portals.
He promises permanency but not in this realm of finite impossibilities.
┗► His promise lives in the bosom of all true believers.                  

                                    ┏► A turning from the flesh to the Spirit.
He looks for that awakening change from self, to us.
Unity is not found in the disunion of souls, and especially those mired
contemptuously against one another, - the cancer of all fallen civilizations.
Leadership is not leadership when it only divides the people and proves
Godís own announcement that man is powerless to lead himself.

Without the power of unyielding decency under His guidance
(how God upholds the heavens), petty thoughts are lost in the crowd.


Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; ...
~ Psalm 25:5


Many things are attributed to being strengthened by the Word of God.
Qualities of humbly asking for help to know better while maintaining the
patience to work through any struggle, in hopeful view of what He has
promised the faithful, eternal life. It is trust in the hereafter and Him.
                                                                 ┗► For the love of Godís own truths.

Disbelievers may say hogwash asking why we must wait, but truth is
larger than human life. Claims of once your dead, your dead, wail out
from cynics who plunder upon the material. It is more than just dust
in the darkness. To be alive in Him is what He waits for. God is
for the living, not the dead. A cemetery is not a place
of worship, and He proclaims that it should not be.
→  This world is not our permanent home.  ←
Salvation is the cry of the marching faithful. Holy is the pureness
of His sustaining light. In fact, His truth comes to light for all those
that truly believe. It is not about squabbling religions of man, it
is about the greatness of Godís own truth given to all men.


Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not
need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. ~ 2nd Timothy 2:15


There is a lot of knowledge in the realm of man.
God is instructing us to be careful in knowing right from wrong, in
accordance with His will. Manís anger denies the goodness of God by
blaming God for the shortcomings of man and unspiritual people fail to
fully acknowledge the curse of Satanís own devouring death, as he is cast
away into the darkness dragging his once omnipresent blessings with him.
Manís severance of God endorses lawlessness and joins in Satanís own
characteristic demise. In the exclusive isolated pursuit of man, Godís
brilliance is lost. To examine His Word is to find God. There is a
greater purpose than just mortal life in a universe of decay,
and it is found in being living creatures of God.
To find this on your own has no greater value.


Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.
~ 1st Thessalonians 5:21-22


All is a mystery to be found and upon finding understanding, it leads one
on the path to further exploration. Decisions to accept what is wholesome
and reject that which is profane is where a good life resides.
To accept Godís word embraces eternity.
    To know Him is to truly Love Him. ◄┛


Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
~ Romans 12:9


In oneís deepest thoughts, loveís aspiration is to be simple and sure.
He asks that we pursue goodness shunning the repulsiveness of evil.
To achieve love in all itsí glory, oneís heart, mind, must rise, leave,
even leap, from the bottom of itsí darkness. Approaching the light is
not found in resting inside the darkness. Truth for us can be enigmatic
in Godís innumerable gifts. Ours, given in wondering, reflects eternity.
God is certainly not disguised with duplicity for this is a dish most
often served by man. God calls for clean hearts in His light.
┗► Treachery in lies is not endorsed by God.          


Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart, ... ~ Proverbs 3:3-4


A passionate compassionate heart is regarded by all.

"Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart;
for consider what great things He has done for you." ~ 1st Samuel 12:24


In regards to Godís creation, how can one not fall humbled in service
to what has been given. Without gratefulness in awe of His wonders,
one limits awareness. True paupers fail to look up from within.
Rich are the poor in spirit for they know of such a
greater need than all the earth could provide.


For the law was given through Moses,
but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. ~ John 1:17


      ┏► God created life to live!
God has no wish for death to reign in the suffering of separation
mired in the inabilities of man. He has incorporated a plan where
His grace redeems those who know Him; the loyal living in Him. It is
not rocket science. A praising heart is a humble heart. It is in praising that
heavenís eternity draws near. Indescribable is the distant remembrance of
the most familiar truth, God so dearly loves us that He did die for us.
His gift of free life and love for us echoes across the heavens.


In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth,
the gospel of your salvation; ... ~ Ephesians 1:13


By abiding in His word the Spirit of truth engages further assistance,
... within, as the promise of the inheritance consummates.
Life eternally begins now. Truth is not something hidden.
                                                    ┗► The Light of His Love is before us all.


... If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us. ~ 1st John 1:6-8


           There is no satisfaction in covetousness. ◄┓┏► It's not about stuff.
There are those that only worship the ground before them.
Unforgiving materialism void of spirit only invites the downtrodden greedy.
Hypocrites abound as manís hate for man is truly our greatest enemy.
Divorce from others is not divorce from self. Sacrifice leads a soul's
sinless rising. All those who walk in His light bring a greater power
to the whole glory, in mercy for one another. The sharing of love
was intended by Him, for His children, and His deepest hope is
now for our joy in Him to overtake our miseries for without.


"... But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may
be clearly seen, that they have been done in God." ~ John 3:20-21


       Past feeling truth, evil consumes itself. ◄┓
Darkness maintains a brazen lack of conscience.
Truth blazes in the face of darkness. It takes courage to overcome any
yanking tumultuous fears. Apathy has no friend in the bravery one must
muster to survive. In struggles, while darkness glooms, the heart beats
hard coughing to breathe. These are times that have consumed each of
us. It can be a battle just to be. To see clearly with the clarity of an open
heart, one must become free of the darkness that binds us; those clasping
chains holding misery in our disgust. All good hearts hold regret.
Accepting His forgiveness strengthens oneís resolve to
be free and moves the spirit forward and upward.


He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments,
is a liar, and the truth is not in him.... ~ 1st John 2:4-5


Truth is the gauge to whether one is in God or not.
All liars have no pity. Alone, a lying heart murders the truth.


In mercy and truth Atonement is provided for iniquity;
And by the fear of the LORD one departs from evil. ~ Proverbs 16:6


He came to lift all repenting hearts. Thank God, praise the Lord,
for Christ carries our sins setting us free to move onward.
This is the truth of His mercy, and astounding grace is found
by all those loyal to Him. Brilliant is shy of His shining truth.


... they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
... who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
~ 2nd Thessalonians 2:10-12


                       ┏► Placing manís ideals above God.
For the arrogant of heart, pointed in their determination, place self above
God. In life they would mock truth buried in deception. These range from
the insane knife cutting butchers, baby life torturing primadonnas, to the
neurotics that rage across the roadways of all lands. Pray all those
who hurt, God truly help us as evil surrounds the meek. The
storm rages upon the remaining calm as nature herself
is witness to the toxic onslaught of manís atrocities.


But this people has a defiant and rebellious heart;
They have revolted and departed. ~ Jeremiah 5:23


Evil has no conscience and pursues pleasure no matter the cost.
Desperation finds hopeless rage in itsí breaking point.


"There are those who rebel against the light;
They do not know its ways Nor abide in its paths." ~ Job 24:13


      Ruin follows in the absence of Godís truth. ◄┓
It is said that the people perish where there is no truth.
To find the light is to find God. Pity upon all whose death is in darkness.


Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?
~ Galatians 4:16


For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
~ 2nd Corinthians 13:8


Like searching for a prize in a box of Cracker Jacks,
one has to dig for the truth to uncover the treasure. In order to
see the truth, one must tear back the lies that would deceive us.
If there is no underlying guiding greater truth, how pitiable is all life.
Hard truth can be painful, but it is the wall we all must climb. Many prefer
the absence of His light, for the truth can be most uncomfortable for those
deceived in the trickery of a lie. Comfort zones have been the death
of many of souls. Truth remains over the masks of man.
┗► Tragic when complacency wipes away decency.        


The truthful lip shall be established forever,
But a lying tongue is but for a moment. ~ Proverbs 12:19


Truth is intermingled with love for how can one absolve one from the other
and still maintain truth? What is impossible is impossible; inseparable.
There is false truth. Hate is truth without merciful hope. Hate is void of
timeless unity with roots often repressed in hidden fears. What nurtures
a child raises a child. Lying cowards beget cowards of the same, and
so to individually rise in the goodness of Godís own truth, a break from
tradition must be mustered, for surely a clean brave heart can only be
realized, in life's fullest form, if God is embraced. It is a lie that our state
should be separate from the godly life. It is in greatest truth that when we
separate God from our state that the despicable creep in, may it never
be so, as it is. Truth maintains a fearless quality in knowing something
greater is ahead. Mature spirits have peaceful praise for life superseding
those immaturely caught up in the disgust of anxiety. Manís affliction
against man kills many who would be faithful in adopting finite scornful
lies over His greater desire for the higher truths to upwell in us. To
be deep is to be high. What is shallow will forever remain shallow.
Lies descend to nothing while the truth eternally rises.


... but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things
into Him who is the head - Christ - ~ Ephesians 4:15


He has risen to show us how to rise, so be it! In truth,
does our might of love reach out to uncover a greater light of truth?


Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself,
... does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; ~ 1st Corinthians 13:4-6


Love is over all.

... putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,"
~ Ephesians 4:25


It is incredible that truth serum is required in such a trustless world as ours.
No serum is required when oneís praise is to the source of all.
Honest is the face of the noble.


... (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), ...
~ Ephesians 5:9


God is calling us out to be righteous
in all goodness holding truth as precious.


Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, ... ~ Ephesians 6:14-15

┏► Integrity is the strength of a soul.                                                
To stand for and in the truth holds no greater honor. Truth prepares us
to withstand attacks upon our conviction when lies assault our character.
One can have zeal for a lie so truth is essential to be right in the eye of
God. We are instructed to use the gospel of peace as a basis for the
truth that we would believe. Lies suppress the people in ignorance
holding us all in the bondage of corruption. He calls for us
to put on the light of His truth in the face of darkness.


... know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the
church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. ~ 1st Timothy 3:15


Universally truth holds to the pillar of eternity.
His truth remains as all falsehoods evaporate.
His word thunderously enlightens the softness of our hearts.


... that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true,
in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. ~ 1st John 5:20


To be held by God is to know Him.

... of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear
us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. ~ 1st John 4:6


To Want or Not to Want the Word of God
SPIRIT OF TRUTH = WANTS TO HEAR GOD
SPIRIT OF ERROR = DOES NOT HEAR GOD


We reach for something yet unseen promised by God. It inspires us to be
better than we are in compassion for others. As God proclaims, the spirit
of truth is in Him, and to reject His reality is to adopt the spirit of error.
Many claim to believe in God, but donít care to talk about Him, either
for fear or ignorance, or in todays political correctness, He has become
taboo. Is God an opinion or a fact, and if opinions differ, does that change
God? It does not, and His truth remains over the petty arguments of man.
A society that does not talk about God is abandoned by God. Honest
hearts Transparent in His light beholds the epitome of truth itself.
┗► Known by Him is all that is.                        


... let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure
our hearts before Him. ~ 1st John 3:18-19


It is caring for others that we find ourselves in harmony with the fulfillment
of spirit, that God created us for, expressly to enjoy in, and this is naturally
innate to His creation. As a part to edify the whole, we find unity in Him.


I rejoiced greatly that I have found some of your children walking in truth, ...
~ 2nd John 1:4


Children pure in heart; it is often lost by those that turn from God.
Children should be the fresh air of their parents inhalation; a welcomed
rejoicing. And if we are reduced to children void of the truth, it results in
the recklessness we now witness across this nation, and any nation that
would abandon His teachings. Withholding God is to the demise of our
children, crippling them as adults, and only perpetuates a mistrustful
society of disgust and unhappiness.


... I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
~ 3rd John 1:3-4


The Word, completed by the Apostles, established Godís truth in His
desire that man know His will through His pronouncements of truth.
Come to Him and find your greater self, an unpretentious soul in the
whole of Him. Harmless as a dove but wise as a waiting serpent.
Would ignorance serve us, and our self-indulgent children, better?


For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth,
there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, ... ~ Hebrews 10:26


A sinful unrepentant life is one that has no restraints, anything goes.
It is one immersed in the sole impulsive pleasures of the flesh, regardless
of the consequences to those surrounding the perpetrator. It is lust
unfulfilled void of generosity. In the mercy of Jesusí life, His grace holds
to those in pursuit of His redeeming force, abiding in the improvements
of spirit God calls out for, in all that would be sinners. He carries the
sins of those that do not turn from Him and His once delivered truths.
Each true Christian is a mountain climber. It is asked, will you come or
remain in your sins. To go on alone in a ditch, it is dreadful to think that
there would be no sacrifice, to cover your disobedience, in the face of His
judgment, especially with access into the goodness that is eternity waiting.
                                          ┗► Faith enables all hopeful hearts in His saving grace.


"But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral,
sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns
with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." ~ Revelation 21:8


For those that remain rebelliously alone, the second death is
figuratively found in the dumping grounds of burning human garbage.
More detrimentally, it is a place of separation from ongoing creation,
and most predominately, separate from the living giving God. As polluted
waste is purged, so will the destruction from the living occur for those that
serve no one but self. There is no room in Godís kingdom for the selfish
as they depart to the discarded. How alone is darkness with no life.
┗► Cast off, there will be gnashing of teeth.                


... For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the
world with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth. ~ Psalm 96:13


It will be unadulterated truth that will expose
each soul for what we are, bare in His light.
↘             ↓             ↙
So it is the Word in which we seek truth.
Nothing is more valuable than the truth for itsí foundation builds on all
that is noble. Truth serves a heart mercifully joining one with the divine.
Our deeds are purely in the midst of our hearts as the pillar defining who
we are. We need to keep our thoughts pure as it is in fact the pillar of our
faith in the sight of God. Pray He preserves us from wicked temptations.
May we be found worthy in the tower of His great living truth.
More than what we think, it is about what we do.

The spiral of darkness takes one nowhere.
We seek for something more than we are.
A value unseen with worth untold. Why is it said that the best things
in life are free? It is because there is a priceless treasure beyond
compare in the bosom of an appreciating free spirit.


"... God has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven ..."
~ Deuteronomy 4:19


┏► What we search for defines our character.                                
As we search deep into the night filled sky, our wonder for creation
can fall from appreciating that which created it, especially if we choose
fantasies of our own devising, or personal sure understandings, over a
humble spirit recognizing unknown realities across time are held by
God alone. Common sense in truth has always been challenged
by the delusional in moments of impulse.


... What is man that You are mindful of him, ... ~ Psalms 8:3-4

In the sure vastness of all that is, and the despicableness
of man, it is an honor and blessing that He considers us.


All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; ... ~ Daniel 4:35

We answer to the Lord, for certainly He does not answer to us. He
needs no explanation as He orchestrates beyond the speck that we are.


Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD, ... Who taught Him knowledge,
And showed Him the way of understanding? ~ Isaiah 40:13-14


It is the Lord that has purposely devised all, so that only the best
who are established in goodness and justice will survive forevermore,
in His Kingdom of life. We are mostly ignorant to the greater good that
He oversees in our favor. We need Him but He does not need us. Let us
not misunderstand that He does want us, as a Father wants his children.
He takes pleasure in the independence He has given for us to find
on our own, as so He does. We are in fact part of His image of
underlying infinite value, cherishing the most precious of all, life.
             It takes tender courage to live as death shadows all our living. ◄┛


Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket, And are
counted as the small dust on the scales; ... ~ Isaiah 40:15


Our thinking limits us if we believe spatial moments, in time, have
more value than the entire span of existence from beginning to end;
what encapsulates the Alpha Omega is more than can be known.
God has wealth beyond our reach. In loving Him our hearts
reach out to mingle among the stars and more.


All nations before Him are as nothing, And they are counted
by Him less than nothing and worthless. ... ~ Isaiah 40:17-18


If then we fit in as less than a blip on the scheme of all, how could we
think to be able to fathom the shear magnitude of He who commenced
it to be. We must accept God for who He is, and not create our own
superseding deity, of man or beast, creating what we will never be
able to achieve apart from His giving light, life. One cannot place
creation over that of the rightful creator. No image can reveal God
in His omnipotent glory. We are in truth, only a small part of Him,
but how great is His love for us as His children of light.
                         ┗► Created in His image, He lovingly waits while we decide.


"... 'I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God.
And who can proclaim as I do? ...'"~ Isaiah 44:6-7


No one but the Lord can hold from beginning to end, with insights of
the order of what has been, producing what is to come. The Lord is able
to circumvent beyond the domain that confines us. He is a God fulfilling
prophesies of old. Without His intervening powers, all this universe would
just decay away as life pettily squabbles, lost in the plunging darkness.
What is more favorable, to rise in greater faith, or to drop to oneís own
death alone? Hate certainly drags many into the abyss of suffering
where love gives no joy. In God, love comes first, as He declares.
                                                        The Greatest is Love. ◄┛


"I have made the earth, And created man on it. I-My hands-stretched out
the heavens, And all their host I have commanded. ..." ~ Isaiah 45:12-13


Certainly the Lord has created all. And in such His plan incorporates
priceless spiritual salvation, particularly for those that have obedient
submissive loving hearts; to those ready to freely give thanks for His
gift in the grace of living alive, that He offers to all through Christ.
So often we live to die alone in the disgust that we are, and how
dreadful mortal existence can be, it even wearies the angles.

                     ┏► Suffering is a sign of consciousness purging evil.
As prisoners in bondage upon the earth, He has come to release us
from death into life. We can not earn salvation, but we can accept it.
We need the service of His freely given infinite wisdom.


... milk Without money and without price. Why do you spend money for what
is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? ... ~ Isaiah 55:1-2


Yes, freely offered by God are the fundamental ideals that build a
soul toward finding eternal satisfaction. He offers eternal security over
temporary fears. Heaven is a destination of abundance and not just an
imagination pulled of thin air. When one comes to spiritually see, the world
is a temporary restless realm of fading desires. He is the timeless rest our
hearts thirst for as His real love pours out upon those that acceptingly
know Him in glory. His wealth is instantly upon us, deeper than what can
ordinarily be noticed. More than just a fuzzy feeling, He is an extent, and
in the comforts He gives, many disregard those gifts given, which sustains
life in His eternity. Let us rejoice in the abundance He gives, and not be
left reduced to simpletons mired in unthankful selfish coveting desires
of not having, especially when we have. Life is four letters in Love.
Real worth cannot be paid for, as He so aptly informs us.


... let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires,
let him take the water of life freely. ~ Revelation 22:17


Come is the call that echoes across all time, to return home with our
Holy God most high, the source of our lives. Come is an individual call
to His eternal existence, and it is not found exclusive to any one place
on earth. He is humble light with no shadow, unhidden, while charlatans
of affluence often attempt to hide His glory, and simple truth. Many have
and do create spiritual lies, complex distorted boggling quandaries,
plaguing all who succumb to their seed of false lustful desperate
controlling desires. There is no confusion in what God has proclaimed.
Sometimes, these self-seeking individuals are connivingly methodical,
or it just reduces to fools comfortably following, surrounded in a crowd
of deception, not adhering to Godís truth. Knowingly or unknowingly,
souls holding to the lie stumble while digging deeper into the ditch of
the downtrodden. It is said that it is hard to teach a man what he already
knows. Arrogance over curiosity is what crushes all that is great in His
wealth of Spirit. False worship focuses on claiming manís power over His
truth, clearly seen in facades exalting the material - for the great talented
cleverness of man, short of the truth in spirit worship, God calls out for,
from the heart. Are we to worship finite things, and turn our attention to
dead rocks, or to live to the living God who calls us continually, no matter
where we are. As it is written, earth is not a location of great significance,
so why do we worship spots upon her fading surface? The instant moment
in which we live declares the abundance of spirit we hold to. Let us
rise to know the value of God over the nonsense of man.


Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. ...
~ Isaiah 55:6-7


As stars flicker, God remains among us maintaining mercy, in hope that
we may live in Him. What He has freely given is His light that we may live.


... He does not retain His anger forever, Because He delights in mercy.
~ Micah 7:18


Godís greatest pleasure is in those who love Him. To appreciate His
ongoing call to the lost exposes His patient plan to gain loyal souls.
                                                       ┗► His patience extends as a Father loves.


... "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher
than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts." ... ~ Isaiah 55:8-9


No one can fully comprehend His greater glory for
independent life to remain trustworthy in His ways of goodness.
His value for us, as His living creation, exceeds all that we may value.
He loves us more than we can love Him, even with utterly open hearts.
To know this truth embraces his wisdom for us all to live. His ways
and thoughts have devised His method to retrieve us
from rebellion in the best way possible.


"... My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth,
..." says the LORD, "from this time and forevermore." ~ Isaiah 59:20-21


His forethought has given the words of truth to man to simply find God,
if courageously done, and free from embarrassment to do so. God calls,
releasing freedom to be free, that true spirits may find His Spirit written
upon their hearts. Truth is easily received by those that honestly seek it as
it is innate to our natural nature, being that we are images of what is real.
Our infinite wealth comes by His Spirit rendering His words of truth.


The Lord gave the word; Great was the company of those who proclaimed it:
... ~ Psalm 68:11


The Lord selected those best able to carry the torch of His truth to light
souls in darkness. In times past many were made privy to His presence
through miraculous intervention. The Lord does not need to
prove Himself as He has countlessly already done.
                    None can see all the work of the Lord. ◄┛


... death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had
not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam,
who is a type of Him who was to come. ~ Romans 5:13-14


The law is established to define Godís order and separate good from bad.
Governments and religions of man often, if not always, skew away from
the will of God by placing men and manís desires over God. Exposing
light in the darkness reveals true independent individual life reaching
back to the source of all. Is oneís true desire to ignite in return to God?
To have a sinless nature in God is where infinite wealth resides. We are
all little children of God, and not masters over mere men or souls by any
other name. It is dominion of God over man, not dominion of man over
man.

Jesus came for us to identify with, showing Godís own true absolute
nature, in life. By His sacrifice and gift of eternal being, partaking through
Him, we return in good grace to God and avoid death. Though many wish
to die, itsí deeper mask is a desire to live. Without His supporting love, life
becomes lost in the shadows of man. One must check oneís own heart to
admit, or not to admit, that God is God, and if He is, then God cannot lie,
and He is not the author of confusion, as man is, and His word holds true.
It is then, through His word, that the individual finds God, over the
manipulations of men. His promise of inspired truth lasting through the
countless ages of man endures, though lies flourish among ungodly
men who selfishly lash out in retaliation against the flesh.
No heart that hates inherits value beyond worth.


But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man's offense many
died, ... the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.
~ Romans 5:15


Abounding over the offence of a sinful nature, through
the gift of God given to man, is in the whole of His truth.


And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. ...
but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification.
~ Romans 5:16


After the judgment of condemning rebellion against Godís good order to
obedience, justification of souls came by God Himself, so that those who
would genuinely love Him could return. Justification comes by a pure
heart cleansed in the mercy of His love. His gift has made us free
of death for those accepting His truth and acting upon it. For all
that is good, it is easy to be repulsed by blatant callous evil.


... much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of
righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) ~ Romans 5:17


                                  The call of God comes through Jesus Christ. ◄┓
Through Christ we return to God, and by no other means.
It is God who has declared it. God has one plan
whereas man has the convolution of many.


Grace + the Gift = Life in Christ

... through one Man's righteous act the free gift came to all men,
resulting in justification of life. ... ~ Romans 5:18-19


                         Free Gift = Justification of Life

  One Man's Obedience = Many Made Righteous  

By Christís righteous life, our lives are redeemed to rise in the unity of
His Spirit. It is a call to return to righteousness in Him by God Himself.
Obedience to the ways of God is forming righteousness.


... even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord. ~ Romans 5:20-21


Uncovering evil is made clear by His word, that no man
can deny, all are under His offer to return in Him.
                             ┗► To believe Him is to obey Him.


For by grace you have been saved through faith, and not of yourselves,
it is the gift of God, ... ~ Ephesians 2:8


Is not what Christians hope for is eternal life to freely roam in His abode?

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God
is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 6:23


Eternal life is a choice to be submissively in Christ, believing in His power,
else a separate destructive delusion invades His kingdom assassinating
His truth and simple calling. He offers a gift no man can give.
           A gift with honor. ◄┛


Grace = the Gift of God

Gift of God = Eternal Life

"And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God,
and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." ~ John 17:3


Eternal Life = Know God

No other plan offers true eternal life but that which
has come of God Himself. Man does not return to man.
                                                                ┗► God is the Creator.


... reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through
faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. ~ 1st Peter 1:3-5


Time is not a constraint of eternal life. As the last time arrives,
glory untold commences upon those accepting His
pure inheritance from an irrevocable love.


                                                                                                           ┏► Belief is only effective in action.
... "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
~ Acts 2:38


One must be immersed in His truth, and His call,
for the remission of sins, which then in turn covers the soul with His Spirit.
Christ supersedes all lawyers and reduces all magistrates to subjugation.
We answer to Him, not men. Hear the call and act upon the heart of
His truth before tomorrow is no more. Men may argue but the
words of His truth is clear, without baptism in Christ, there
is no remission of sins and the gift is not given.


... He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, ... that
those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
~ Hebrews 9:15


It is Christ, and by His Spirit, that clears the way opening our return
to God. Come to Him and wash away what no other means
can wash, in a refreshing of conscience led by the Spirit.

This call does not come by man or any of his faltering religions, and no
promise by man can replace the true call of God to come to Him, by Him.

Darkness brings light to nothing.
In life we are to ourselves that we are as God is that He is. Perception
defines a soul either for the greater good or left to the detriments of living.
Questions of right and wrong are often answered by what is most
sensible. Is it that the glass is half empty, or half full, and when asked
as to what one holds in a simple open palm, the answer divulges the soul.
Is it all or nothing we hold, and this exposes the appreciation of oneís
thoughts. It is in truth a question, a test of giving or taking and the
balance therein. Man against man is not the fundamental calling of God.
To achieve wealth in His truth one has to see through the eyes of God
Himself, and it is the Bible that delivers these nuggets enlightening true
jewels of thought delivering treasures to the soul that have no compare.

For the littleness that is man, God is not glorified, nor does He
condone as great, lone fools waving weapons in hand, but condemns
them as murderous fanatics, and certainly not true Jihadists to His cause.

All suicides spawn from a selfish cowardly heart holding to an easy
delusional excuse over real courage to plow through the pains of living
reaching achievement. No suicide has ever finished anything great or
honorable, but lowly joins to all that is detestable. Exception would be
for the judgment of God though I doubt He favors self-termination in any
instance. Value is in life, not death. Godís call is to be strong, even in our
weakness, as we seek Him out, and not just a pitiful desire of man. What
we seek is what we become. Though many disparagingly whine, one can
not argue against the will of His truth. An orange will never be violet as a
lie will never be true. Hate for self and or others is not the call of God but
the power of Satan. It is truth that conveys infinite wealth. The question
lays in how we live, not how we die. Most are good at dying, but the truly
great live past all adversity carrying others. It is in His wealth of Spirit we
endure, and in poverty of flesh, we die. To embrace only the ladder
denies His saving grace. May His eternal Spirit of truth be upon
us and our children. Without the pillar of His truths guiding us,
a fearless and humble public power remains unobtainable.


... the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things
that have been freely given to us by God. ~ 1st Corinthians 2:12

┗► The Light of Life given.    
┏► A light surpassing death.
A greater light has touched our hearts lifting us
beyond the confines of the mere mortal.

If a quarter is left on the sidewalk, it is our choice to pick it up or not,
not that it is earned, but would be received as a free gift, as is His truth,
it has been left in the open for those that would find it valuable.


... to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you
may be filled with all the fullness of God. ~ Ephesians 3:19


Jesus brought the truth of infinite wealth to earth. ◄┓                      
To be filled beyond measure is not explainable,
but felt in the bosom of His love.
Belief in Christ is the hinge of eternal salvation. ◄┛                                   


... and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will
guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:7


Tranquility is found in the sanctuary of His essence,
spiritual solitude alongside His Spirit.


How much better to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding
is to be chosen rather than silver. ~ Proverbs 16:16


To know understanding reveals immeasurable wealth.

"... It cannot be purchased for gold, Nor can silver be weighed for its price."
~ Job 28:12-15


The glory of truth reaches out before all, often higher
than what is obtainable, yet rendered freely by God.
To approach Him is to emulate His ways.


... Enduring riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yes,
than fine gold, And my revenue than choice silver. ~ Proverbs 8:14-19


To possess wisdom has no price in itsí priceless worth. Infinite wealth
dwells in the free spirit, and it cannot be paid for with all that the inert
universe may contain. It is a bird suckling on a flower beneath
a sparkling waterfall with the buzzing of a cricket. It is free. It
reaches out from within touching all that is holy in His light.


I traverse the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice, That I
may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.
~ Proverbs 8:20-21


The treasury of knowledge is empty without incorporating wisdom to
appreciate it. We all are challenged to see the forest beyond the tree
that fixates us. Pray He opens the pearls we require to be in His truth.
Infinite wealth lays in an upright just heart.


"... where no thief approaches nor moth destroys.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." ~ Luke 12:33-34


No rust or dust can consume that which is freely given by God.
It is the treasure of an inner light glowing as it touches eternity itself.


... not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, ...
~ 1st Timothy 6:17-19


Material wealth has no value if absent from compassion for
that which is true in goodness. The greedy are left alone to
the miseries that they unbearably endure. Better a little
laughter in love than a feast full of contention.


... longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to
be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. ~ Colossians 1:10-12


The call from the Lord is an upward one filled in His attributes to an
unending life. Each one of us holds challenges as we embrace and
embark on that lifeís razor, of sheer pleasure upon the ice of pain. Making
the leap to faith in God lifts one higher than what is obtainable otherwise.


... the things which are seen are temporary, but the
things which are not seen are eternal. ~ 2nd Corinthians 4:17-18


In the mirror of life, one can see reflections of His truth in the shades of all
colors. His approaching light is what we are to become eternally united in.
Time itself is witness to that which conveys the temporary.


"... 'to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from
the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgivness of sins and an
inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.'" ~ Acts 26:18


Forgiveness
of Sins
 +  Promised
Inheritance
 =  Sanctified
by Faith
in God

It is a simple truth that God loves us. To truly love Him
sets a soul free to soar in such unrestricted heights.


Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived. ... ~ 1st Corinthians 6:9-11


                   ┏► A person of fame or power cannot disavow what God has proclaimed.
Evil be warned, no excuse will render what all desire without His pardon.
One may choose ungodly pleasures over the self-control of heart
that He demands of, from His creatures; and for those entitled
to inherit the grace He offers, His will must take precedence.
To gain Him avails eternal rewards. In our act of obedience
He ordains the gift upon us.


For what is the allotment of God from above, And the inheritance of the
Almighty from on high? Is it not destruction for the wicked, ... ~ Job 31:2-3


For all those refusing to regard His ways will find His final hand leaving
them worthless. All knowledge is His and upon our actions we are judged.


The LORD knows the days of the upright,
And their inheritance shall be forever. ~ Psalm 37:18


For the LORD will not cast off His people, Nor will He forsake His inheritance.
~ Psalm 94:14


The Lord has made a promise of eternity to all those uprightly
alive in Him. Each of us needs to cast off the works of darkness.


"... For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks." ~ Luke 6:45

The desire of the heart reveals the truth of a soul. Words of heart either
defile or bless those surrounding. Ones compass uncovers true direction.


"... how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God!"
~ Mark 10:24


The obsession with material gain has not
the protection that spiritual wealth delivers.


... "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not
consist in the abundance of the things he possesses." ~ Luke 12:15


Things are sent in tangible form as a test, from God,
to show where primary importance or true value holds for a soul.
Qualities of spirit define destiny, such as mercy over greed, love rather
than hate, patience with the rash. God is telling us, ďLook, Iím going
to give you a world full of stuff. Do you want Me who gave you
this stuff, or do you want the stuff more than Me?Ē


... "Your money perish with you, because you thought that
the gift of God could be purchased with money!" ~ Acts 8:20


As it is written, no price can pay for what must be surrendered.
Love of God is a mutual sharing and can not be possessed.
Love is not taken, it is given.

Salvation is as it is, a gift of God, and it can only be accepted upon
His terms. It cannot be earned in a holy god forsaken war of man
or seized by force. It only comes by a humble realization of what
He asks of His creatures, which is put forth in His word.


"Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or
the altar that sanctifies the gift?" ~ Matthew 23:19


What is more valuable, the gift of life or the action of substance?

"... he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting
life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life."
~ John 5:24


Hears
His Word
 +  Believes
in Him
 =  Everlasting
Life

Faith comes by hearing, and in hearing, if one acts upon His truth, true life
is realized. It is critical that His word be examined by the individual soul
for salvations sake. Belief is like a match. One hears that it is lit and, in
sensibility, one does not expose flesh to its scorching. Believing reality,
one would not knowingly harm oneself after the truth of its presence, or
danger, was known. To hear baptism is required for salvation, from Jesus,
and explained by Peter for the remission of sins, is it sensible to argue
against His call to obey? Ignoring to hear God reaps due consequences
in all stubborn hearts who would deny His plan in place of another.
No human excuse or substitute doctrine will exonerate the guilty
from the guillotine. If one believes an ax is swinging towards
oneís neck, one moves. Belief is a call to action.


And having been perfected, He became the author
of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, ... ~ Hebrews 5:9


                 ┏► Jesus is Godís door to heaven.
Jesus is the perfection and epitome of God. Oneís soul
is best served in service to Godís own call to obedience.


Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ,
let us go on to perfection, ... ~ Hebrews 6:1-3


He calls souls to incorporate His knowledge and propel toward greater
attributes lifting those below to the unending heights He offers.
Following His ways boosts a man closer to God leaving
behind those mired in the petty arguments of men.

It is also a call to leave the former wicked ways behind and not
to compare oneself as to who is better in Godís eyes. Focusing on
nonjudgmental quiet goodness is where the mature Christian resides.


... and have tasted the good word of God and the powers
of the age to come, if they fall away, ... ~ Hebrews 6:4-6


                                                                                                    ┏► Godís Word is the final notice to man.
Truth is that it is truth. To reject His pronouncements leaves Him with little
alternative than to oblige oneís wishes to live separate from the light He
offers in truth. His revealing will expose those foreign to His ways. One
cannot accept God and then reject His ways if salvation is to be had.


Now godliness with contentment is great gain. ~ 1st Timothy 6:6

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! ~ 2nd Corinthians 9:15

Each breath is a gift of life.
Missing the eternal will be the biggest gasp ever felt.

6/19/2016 ~ Liberty's Cloak


  liberty1am.mp3 (40m 56s)                   liberty2pm.mp3 (51m 04s)
  

Where there is no freedom, only darkness remains.
Liberty is contained in all that maintains light in His presence.


   Lord = Spirit = Liberty   

Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
~ 2nd Corinthians 3:17


                                                                                      ┏► By His will we live.
It is by the Spirit of God that life is freely given.
Time is free to blow in space. Grass grows as rivers flow.
The moment is given to unfurl as it becomes, free as it is.

Many ask where this Spirit of God is, and it is for the
pure in heart to know as they know He is here omnipresently.


So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them. ~ Genesis 1:27


Hearts hang on the edge of eternity. It is a choice to see creation and
whence we came if life is to be grasped in the fullest. We came of God.
It was God who chose to make both men and women to expose
the deeper points of a soul's commitment in giving over taking.
We were created to reflect His image in life.
All life freely returns to Him. ◄┛


For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light. ~ Psalm 36:9

And I will walk at liberty, For I seek Your precepts. ~ Psalm 119:45

What does it mean to be created in the image of God?
We can experience. Feel the light. Smell the grass. Sense the wind of
time. In His image we are free to be who we are. Precepts have been
given in His light for us to know what God expects, if eternity is to be had
by those that yearn for it. Death mongers and delusionists will inherit what
they darkly desire in a single coughing gasp as their teeth gnash upon the
decaying dust, and all too sadly alone absent from His eternal presence.
                                             ┗► One is free to choose self over God.

His call is from the light of life.


... they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. ~ 1st Samuel 8:7

Souls have fallen from appreciating that which is freely given by God.
The simple minded desire direction from the tangible lacking faith in the
eternal. Darkness is immersed in an ocean that cannot see the sky.


... "This will be the behavior of the king who will reign over you: He will take ...
~ 1st Samuel 8:10-11


Men of stature and influence more often take than give.

"He will appoint captains over his thousands and captains over his fifties, ..."
~ 1st Samuel 8:12


It is the nature of leadership to direct those under their command.

"He will take your daughters to be perfumers, cooks, and bakers."
~ 1st Samuel 8:13


Often indulgence overwhelms those
whose greed supersedes a heart of generosity.
                        ┗► Foolishly, evilís recklessness is an act of free will.


"And he will take the best of your fields, your vineyards, ..."
~ 1st Samuel 8:14-15


The spoils of greatness are hoarded by the elite few over the many poor.

"And he will take your male servants, your female servants,
your finest young men, and your donkeys, ..." ~ 1st Samuel 8:16


Those in power take the best for themselves.

"He will take a tenth of your sheep. And you will be his servants. ..."
~ 1st Samuel 8:17-18


The compounding burden of successive leaders
deepens the oppression of the meek without God.


Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said,
"No, but we will have a king over us, ..." ~ 1st Samuel 8:19


Man regularly chooses man over God.
People unwisely choose personal libertys away from God.


The LORD is King forever and ever;
The nations have perished out of His land. ~ Psalm 10:16


┏► It is His will to freely give to the thoughtful.    
"... He gives to all life, breath, and all things." ~ Acts 17:25

His hand is upon the whole of the heavens rising in the midst of all.
God gives without ceasing bestowing life upon all under His care.
Truth cannot be changed, for He is, no matter
how high men exalt lies of convenience.
                                                  ┗► It is a free choice to choose man over God.


... "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this
cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. ..."
~ John 18:37


      God utterly revealed Himself in Christ. ◄┓
Jesus suffered with us so that we could know the extent of Godís most
Holy Love for us. God himself has sacrificed His life, so that we can have
life, as equals in His image of autonomy. Liberty is given to life of God.
Who makes a better king, one that would take, or one that would give?
He eternally gives where no other could. His crown of suffering offers
each of us an eternal crown of life in His light of truth.


"... To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed; ..." ~ Luke 4:18


Jesus came of God to produce the true force of His truth.

Christ Came to do His Will
    To preach the gospel
        to the poor
        to heal the brokenhearted    
    To proclaim liberty
        to the captives
        to the blind
    To set at liberty


He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us
into the kingdom of the Son of His love, ... ~ Colossians 1:13-14


The kingdom He rules waits for us, in what we will decide.
God has given all freedom in life. Will we choose to live in Him is the call
from eternities portal. His love is ready to redeem all those who come to
His call to return embracing roots from the Father.
               He is the source of unswerving truth. ◄┛


"Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." ~ John 8:36

We live in a limited realm of temporalities where fleshly bondage holds us
captive. To be free one must reach beyond self to His touch of Grace.
Eternity is offered freely to all alive.


... creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption
into the glorious liberty of the children of God. ~ Romans 8:21


Freedom is the nature of all things.
By the hand of God a greater liberty awaits.
Liberty is Godís blessing for life.

In darkness there is no sense.
To be free, only in the light can we see.


Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, ...
~ Galatians 5:1


Rising in the truth of God Himself, we must remain in Him over the
confabulations of man's devising. In the bondage of flesh,
He clearly offers Liberty in His light.


For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an
opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. ~ Galatians 5:13


                                                                         ┏► It is love that heals all.
Working together, no power is greater than love. God calls for His
creatures to care for one another. What one serves defines destiny.
To serve only self leads to death of the spirit, whereas selfless acts
glorify His intent for creation. In this image of His truth, we are alive.
With concerted purpose we are called to live over random ramblings.
What good is freedom if it ends up leaving you isolated all alone?


You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.
~ 1st Corinthians 7:23


To really be free in God, one has to thirst in service to Him. To merely
be in service to man, exclusively, is to be locked in the mortal confine
worshipping only the tangible, and for that finite pursuit of which passes
before us. More than the objects of our desire, it is about the One who
formed all that is inert, from beginning to end. Past all known, God is
Spirit and in truth, His unseen fruit is sweeter than the largest imaginable
perceptions. His known invisible qualities are offered to each freely. The
condition is to be right with God as an eager slave to His welcoming love.
In check with eternity we become free.
     ┗► The light God gives never goes out.


... knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things,
like silver or gold, ... ~ 1st Peter 1:18-19


He gave us His life so that we could see how to live. His blood of life truly
washes away our sins; to be able to stand in His unblemished pureness.

           ┏► Achieving freedom relies on the might of all.
Without His guidance, what purpose do we serve? Is not saving
grace greater than all than can be known? In the shadow of His death,
redemption is offered to those who would obey His calling with a noble
heart. Liberty in the highest is, in truth, Christ. No spin on truth is higher.


... should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from
sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, ...
~ Romans 6:6-9


Being a Christian is an awakening to the truth
God has announced for all to know. To be free of the sinful
chains that bind us in darkness allows us to rise in His light.
To know of our bondage sets us on the path to freedom.

Repentance and true godly sorrow pulls us to be better than we are.
His accolades are that we love all that is good.


... he who is called in the Lord while a slave is the Lord's freedman.
~ 1st Corinthians 7:21-23


Yes in the Lord we are all freed, but we still hold the responsibility of
the teachings of Christ. We are not at liberty to do anything we wish but
must cling to the doctrine delivered to all that we might find eternal liberty.
The only true liberty is found upon entrance in to heaven itself.


... The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners. The LORD opens the eyes of the blind;
The LORD raises those who are bowed down; The LORD loves the righteous.
~ Psalms 146:7-8


To take advantage of the qualities the Lord
reveals leads to liberty's enlightenment.


For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus
has made me free from the law of sin and death. ~ Romans 8:2


Where resides the golden orb of Spirit?
It is after all is said and done that the Spirit continues beyond the mere
presence of the mortal. Unarguably, eternity is the gate we will all face as
we rise to meet Him, each bowing before His giving life, the undeniable
source of flawless love. Without Him, we become nothing.
                               He is the source of all that we are. ◄┛


But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were
held by so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit ... ~ Romans 7:6


You canít find faith in a book for it dwells in the heart. There are no walls
in the truth of His light. If one is not serving in the Spirit He calls out for,
blindness beats the negligent soul. Darkness cannot replace the Light.


... with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being
transformed into the same image from glory to glory, ... ~ 2nd Corinthians 3:18


To return to the Lord is to return to the true unveiled image
of our innermost identity. In goodness and truth, this is the way of His
universe forever. God is not hidden as in His word He reveals Himself. To
recognize His Spirit living in us is to become gloriously alive forevermore.
Eternity gleams upon those worshipping in His giving truth.
To see the glory of God is to see the true self.


.But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it,
and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, ... ~ James 1:25


Without personal studies of Godís own truth, and observing His desires
for what He asks of His children, and in fact commands of His children,
life in Him is missed. Those lacking His noblest knowledge fail to live in
the eternal light that He calls out for life to live in. We all will meet God
in Godís way, and only a fool would assume otherwise. Those void of
the actions He wills for in creatures destined for eternal life will suffer
in bottomless emptiness without Him. Darkness can only reveal what
it does not have. Blessings come to all who act on their love of God.
                                                                   ┗► Faith in motion does.


So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty. ...
~ James 2:12-13


God cannot be fooled as we need honesty with self to come before Him.
Double minded hypocrites have no part in the truthfulness He purely
calls for. Souls in His favor know and promote His calling truths.

                   ┏► To be free in God, oneís heart must freely give.
We are all called to help one another achieve His heavenly acceptance.
Surely, deep love in oneís heart triumphs over being devoured by
superficial contempt for others. It is a high order to help those
who would not help themselves. In climbing the mountain of life,
He reflects an image of humbly giving over arrogantly taking.
By His standard we will be judged.
Rejecting the liberty He offers invites death. ◄┛                  


... not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ,
doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service,
as to the Lord, and not to men, ... ~ Ephesians 6:6-7


A free godly heart experiences the fullness of life giggling
in the release from measly mortal bondage. To fall freely
into the Fatherís hands, trust is the root of this love.
                                         ┗► For the sheer Love of God!

A passionate life with godly purpose holds freedomís inspiration,
... and it is a struggle for most, if not all.


... as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice,
but as bondservants of God. ... ~ 1st Peter 2:16-17


To be immersed in His Holy Spirit is to find the greatest of all liberties.
Part of the whole has wider value than lone focused isolation.
Rebellion has always led to disunion. True unity is found
in His truth over the whims of man.


... into one body - whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free - and
have all been made to drink into one Spirit. ~ 1st Corinthians 12:13


There is a storm upon the waves of man.
With only one true freedom, this eternal liberty is in God.
To hear the call renders a soulís free will in His service.


... the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For "whoever
calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved." ~ Romans 10:12-13


any are called to be in the eternal liberty he offers
as it all souls God is calling out to.


"... nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels
and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection." ~ Luke 20:35-36


To attain eternal life is finally where
the equality of liberty is realized for all.


Liberty Comes by the Will of God
● The Spirit of the Lord maintains Liberty
● In Godís light, we are
● Liberty is a lesson in finding His word
● Manís mistake is a call to man over God
● It is God that liberally gives all things
● Jesus Christ is the King of truth
● Heavenly freedom comes by the Son of God
● Remain in His liberty over held in bondage by man
● In liberty serve one another in love
● Do not become slaves of men
● In Him we are freed from slavery to sin
● Redemption comes by accepting His sacrifice
● In Christ we are free from sin and death
● We are called to perform in His workings of Liberty
● He calls for us to freely possess loving hearts
● Liberty is not a call to sin, but to godliness

Only those in God are truly free.
Liberty is a call from His Spirit.

Darkness opens to nothing.

7/17/2016 ~ Denying Christ


  denial1am.mp3 (40m 16s)                 denial2pm.mp3 (47m 21s)
  

In absolute darkness light has no presence.
To deny Christ is to deny the light of God Himself.


He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. ... ~ Isaiah 53:3

┗► Sorrow is a poor manís treasure.            

The suffering Christ endured, He carried the wicked sins of all.
He did this unselfishly to enlighten all those who would choose
to know the one and only true God of love and self-sacrifice.


Christ suffered the rejection of men
God =   
Despised + Rejected
+ Sorrows + Grief
+ ( Ė Esteemed )

... He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. ~ John 1:10-11

                                                                  ┏► Voracity pounces upon the downtrodden.
As the powers of mongering evil would have it,
they reject simple truth mercilessly.


He came to His own + His own did not receive Him = REJECTION

Then they began to plead with Him to depart from their region. ~ Mark 5:17

Truth burns the ears of those who do not want to hear.
One may say they will never deny God but if one unrepentantly
lives, contrary to His instructions for lifestyle, the rejection remains.
Though they plead, it only delays their destination with the abyss.


... they begged Him to depart from their region. ~ Matthew 8:34

As pigs race to destruction, mindless evil follows in desperation
to purge that which is not understood when light attempts
to change itsí darkness back to the light.


Yet they say to God, 'Depart from us, For we do not desire
the knowledge of Your ways.' ~ Job 21:14


Many are so comfortable in their set ways that they dare others to try and
change what they believe; donít challenge their right to be that they are.
Arrogance has led families, nations, and the world to the brink
of destruction again and again. It is not God that does this,
it is the anger that boils in souls devoid of compassion
mired in selfish perverted stubborn judgments.


"For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man
will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, ..." ~ Luke 9:26

┗► Shamelessly they blister in contempt.                           

His universe of life contained in the truth of His creation has a
higher purpose, and especially for those destined to inherit His Grace.
Those who choose to oppose Him remaining against what He has
righteously called out for in His life will receive judgment,
according to His will, over that of rebellionís arrogance.


Ashamed of Him + His words   
=   
He will be
ashamed of those
when He comes


... ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation,
of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes ~ Mark 8:38


Without regard for His will of ordained decency and loyalty for His justice,
damnation waits for those that choose not to know God nor want to know
Him, in His ways. Huge numbers of souls choose sexual promiscuity over
self-control along with no reservations broadcasting sexual jestings.
Appropriately, they will unsurprisingly receive His rejection.


"But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny
before My Father who is in heaven." ~ Matthew 10:33


          Unbelief in Him is a condition of denial. ◄┓
It is most condemning for those who in unbelief
do not regard His eternal saving Grace.


He who Denies Me = Denied before God in Heaven

"... since you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life,
behold, we turn to the Gentiles." ~ Acts 13:46


There are those that deny His word is truth
in the suffocating guilt that will consume them.
Others give up believing they are going to hell anyway, so why try.
To act on believing in God, it takes courage and a steadfast spirit.


... this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light, ... ~ John 3:19


Evil methods do not truly care for the light of God
where accountability drives justice.


"The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me
because I testify of it that its works are evil." ~ John 7:7

\     |     /                         
Evil hates truthís light that exposes the secrets
hidden in the shadows of darkness.
All transparently reflects in His vision of hearts. ◄┛                                    


"... the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but
I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." ~ John 15:19


The earth is an implosion of hate which God calls us to become free of.
Seeking Him is greater than all the substance of time.


"He who hates Me hates My Father also. ..." ~ John 15:23-25

Hate upwells from an anger of not having consumed
in that which will never be had. Hate does not summit to love
but excuses itself in the blur of not caring to know.


He who hates Me without cause = Hates God

Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have
passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. ... ~ 1st John 3:13-16


Hate abides in the death of a soul.
The simple truth is love is power over hate where hate knows no sacrifice.
               ┗► Mercy tenderly sympathizes in pardoning penitent sin.


Hate abides in Death

Death to Life → Because we Love


If we endure, We shall also reign with Him.
If we deny Him, He also will deny us. ... ~ 2nd Timothy 2:12-13


God remains faithful over all conditions of man waiting to find
those loyally seeking to live in the light of His ways.


Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes
flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD. ~ Jeremiah 17:5


The bottom line is what a heart is to itself.
One can only know who one is and if not in accord with the divine
calling of God Himself, oblivious despicable pursuits can lead to a soul's
destruction over eternal life in Him. No crime is greater than departing
from what is real beyond all that we can know. If God is not greater,
then something less has been fallen in to.


Darker than dark where substance has no form. ◄┓  
"But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness.
There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." ~ Matthew 8:12


The world is overly religious due to the bureaucracies of manís
corruption and power posturing. God is not looking for self-important
people. The Jews believed they were entitled. Many believe supremacy
over others and or their doctrines; ďWe are the best way.Ē It is not about
one set of people but God was approaching His message for all through
the stumblingís of man. It is about awakening individual hearts over
conglomerate collections of blind followers. God looks to see how one
leads oneself weighing honesty over deception. Though the Jewish elite
thought they were Godís own chosen, their wickedness and color of heart
drew no distinction, in repeated abysmal actions, all repulsive to God.

Many people who think they are upright may be in jeopardy of not
knowing God over themselves. Self-righteous, if not humbled in the face
of God, will find that outer darkness as light leaves them for lost.


Evil hates the Light He gives
● He is despised and rejected by men
● His own did not receive Him
● They pleaded with Him to depart from their region
● They begged Him to depart from their region
● To be ashamed of Him and His words condemns one
● To deny Him denies access to God who is in heaven
● Rejecting the word judges one unfit for eternal life
● Men love evilís darkness rather than light
● The world hates Him because He testifies of its evil
● The world hates us for belief in more than the world
● They hated Him without a cause
● We have passed from death to life, because we love
● If we endure, We shall also reign with Him

There is no sympathy in darkness.
Living is a curiosity in becoming that which is good
and noble over the decent to wickednessís abominations.


"... before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times."
~ Mark 14:30-31


┏► Trust in God should supersede fear of man.                              
Spiritual courage has always been challenged by the weakness of flesh.
Blessed are those that follow the convictions of their beliefs.
Precedence demands an honest God fearing heart. ◄┛                                                      

We may think we have an eye on the truth and it really comes down to the
tarmac where thoughts in action are what masters the spirit of a soul.


... "Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times."
And when he thought about it, he wept. ~ Mark 14:72


To often fear pushes people from the truth
of taking a stand for what is right in His sight.
If one says he has no regrets, is he not a liar?
Repentance is thoughtfulness in the face of His presence.


The Color of Repentance
When he thought about it = He wept

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you
have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you ... ~ Hosea 4:6


To the shame of our children godless truth is held higher
in the absence of His righteous calling.


Reject Knowledge of God = Destroyed

They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable,
disobedient, and disqualified for every good work. ~ Titus 1:16


All wickedness void of conscience devours the soul in the bite of a wolf.

Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? ... ~ 1st John 2:22-23

One can choose not to accept His light, that will not hide, and that
would be the choice of one becoming buried in searing darkness.


Liar = Denies Christ = Antichrist
Antichrist = Does not have God


... every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is
not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, ... ~ 1st John 4:2-3


One can deny Christ has come in the flesh and this would be to reject
what God has offered to man in the fullest sense of divine glory. No matter
how deep the darkness dug into the bottom of a soul, His rope of light
simply calls for one to try in reaching up to gain reconciliation.
Calling out to the most wicked; His call is to live in Him. ◄┛


Spirit of God = Confesses Christ came
Spirit of Antichrist = Denies Christ came


... deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ ...
~ 2nd John 1:7


Those exclusively in pursuit of godless pleasures deny the gift
God has given to all, His own image of truth in the flesh.
                                                                 ┗► In all that is goodness.

Those that burn crosses and blame religion for the problems that
currently confront civilization miss the higher message of salvation.
What a man holds in his bosom declares eternal worth from above
or a simpletons bickering among fellow shallow surface dwellers.


Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ
does not have God. ... ~ 2nd John 1:9


For God to be God, His power in what has been delivered
cannot lie upon itself. Christ is His flash for reaching those
lacking insight in the value of His eternal light.
Priceless is a single breath in life. ◄┛

... but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but
obey unrighteousness-indignation and wrath, ... ~ Romans 2:8


It is a choice to pursue evil, and that cannot be stopped,
if one who would wish to resist a conscience in Him.
One bent on evil shows no remorse in their unholiness.


... a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation
which will devour the adversaries. ~ Hebrews 10:26-27


Regret is Godís blessing in knowing right from wrong.

"But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral,
sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns
with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." ~ Revelation 21:8


                                                                                                   Death holds no color. ◄┓
Contrary to popular belief, the dark side has no lasting force.

He said to them, "All too well you reject the commandment of God,
that you may keep your tradition." ~ Mark 7:9


Stubborn human ploys relentlessly trample that which comes
before them, unwilling to compromise in their hardness of heart.
They are a law unto themselves.


... in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you
received from us how you ought to walk ... ~ 1st Thessalonians 4:1-2

                                                                                                   ┗► God declares we remain in him.

The word proclaims the desire of God for manís liberty,
and in submission to His love the heart sees.


... know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in
passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; ... ~ 1st Thess. 4:3-5


With a clean heart love lasts forever. In accepting the heart of Jesus
one finds the truth of Godís redemption for eternal life.


For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore he who
rejects this does not reject man, but God, ... ~ 1st Thessalonians 4:7-8


To live without regarding His call to humble holiness
personally rejects God Himself.


Refuse to be Holy = Rejects God

... in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God,
and on those who do not obey the gospel ... ~ 2nd Thessalonians 1:7-8


There will be no forgiveness for those who purposely,or ignorantly,
refuse Him and His word. God has made Himself unobtrusively available
for all to know through His word. What one pursues is what one becomes.

Choices of broad humanism over individual godliness define a souls
destiny, and certainly, social trials under the oppressions of man include
boundless afflictions. It is hard work to keep a clean heart in God.

Those unable and or unwilling to ward off evil, contrary to
innate goodness written upon the heart of life, will fall in to the
consuming darkness prepared for all of Godís opponents.
One cannot fight against God and win.


These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence
of the Lord and from the glory of His power, ... ~ 2nd Thessalonians 1:9


Reserved is a place where contentment has no light
for those embracing darkness's destructiveness.
It is in the presence of the Lord that we live.
True treasures untold await, for each of us,
that wait on His mercy and grace.


God looks for a heart to rise back to Him
● Good intentions are not always realized in action
● What we donít do for God should cause remorse
● Forgetting knowledge of God is what destroys souls
● Professing to know God is not always honorable
● In the spirit of an antichrist a liar denies Christ
● Not confessing Christ coming in the flesh is not of God
● Not abiding in Christís doctrine dismisses God
● Disobedient self-seekers invite His indignation and wrath
● Evil forever separates from God in the second death
● People reject Godís commands in favor of tradition
● Instructions received show how we ought to walk
● Rejecting the call to holiness rejects God Himself
● Not obeying the gospel or knowing God damns one

In His light of truth all will come to see in the face of His judgment.

God calls to those who have rejected Him to return.
He waits for each one of us.

Lightís last moment evaporates to darkness.

8/21/2016 ~ The Rock

Darkness has no corner.
Rising from nothing, all substance is of God.

... greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways
are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.
~ Deuteronomy 32:3-4


            GOD = THE ROCK
  HIS WORK = PERFECT
  HIS WAYS = JUSTICE + TRUTH
            GOD = RIGHTEOUS + UPRIGHT  


His creation holds proof beyond question for that it is. ◄┓                                         
We may not always be able to see what the intent of the Lord is,
but we are assured that His method is sound, and sure, to
accomplish His purpose of nurturing autonomous goodness
inviting His creation to live eternally, in union with Him.
It is God that declares righteous upright justice in truth.


They sacrificed to demons, not to God, To gods they did not know,
To new gods, new arrivals ... ~ Deuteronomy 32:17-18


                                                                                                          ┏► To fall away from Godís truth.
Man too often has chosen his own rule and or immediate
distorted desires, disregarding the sensible and just will of God.
It was never in Godís plan to have man sacrifice his children to the
carnage of human atrocities. To forget God is to forget decency.


For their rock is not like our Rock, ... of Sodom And of the fields of Gomorrah;
... of serpents, And the cruel venom of cobras. ~ Deuteronomy 32:31-33


Exalting objects over eternal purpose is what amplifies the lustful
destroying the innocence of youth and all higher noble qualities.


"For the LORD will judge His people And have compassion on His servants,
... ~ Deuteronomy 32:36-38


The Lord watches and waits while man argues in ways of excusing wrong
for right, away from Godís truth, justifying rebellion with empty lies. God
regards only those in service to His ways. There is no refuge for the fallen.


Woe to him who says to wood, 'Awake!' To silent stone, 'Arise! ...
~ Habakkuk 2:19


For that which can never be, man cannot create life. In his faux
attempt, he creates dead objects to assimilate his power over life.
Pompously knowing is not the same as humbly wondering.
Whatever this world may create or produce, it can never
express the glory that comes from that which made it all.
Earth in all its glory is just a fragile rock rolling in space.
Worshipping creations of man blurs vision to the point of blindness.


... who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped
and served the creature rather than the Creator, ... ~ Romans 1:25


False ideas infect the whole of humanity finding delusions as truth.
The ignorant flock to the manipulations of man. The truth of God is a
call to be upright in spirit seeking out His will, over the blind stumbling's
of those that would continue to find worship in the material world, over
that of the unseen where hope intersects love. God is not found in
golden crosses or ornate structures that magnify man over God.
God is not an object more than an essence.
                                               ┗► God is felt over that which can be envisioned.


"Therefore by their fruits you will know them." ~ Matthew 7:20

                                                                  Language is the force of spirit. ◄┓
Humanity is spoiled by those that fester in what is rotten.
Holiness is lost when evil putrefies the whole.


And He said, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."
~ Exodus 33:14


You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; ...
~ Psalm 16:11


IN HIS PRESENCE = FULLNESS OF JOY

It is acknowledging the presence of the Lord that gives us our strength,
and it settles one in to rest in Him which is peace of mind.
We all live in the shadow of His salvation.


No one is holy like the LORD, For there is none besides You,
Nor is there any rock like our God." ~ 1st Samuel 2:2


Holy is God in the pureness of His creation
whereby comes the rock of His truth.
                                                           ┗► For us to take self-control in faith.


"The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; The God
of my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield ... ~ 2nd Samuel 22:2-3


                                                                                                                                           ┏► His truth instructs.
A true believer of God in Christ does not act rashly on impulse,
but methodically reserves thoughts carefully.


The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength,
in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, ... ~ Psalm 18:2-3


In an anguished world living in the flesh, to find a strength of
reliance within to that which is greater than self delivers the soul.
Knowing He is the savior shelters the heart. Sanctuary
can not be taken if trust is not the shield of salvation.


"... who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?
God is my strength and power, And He makes my way perfect."
~ 2nd Samuel 22:32-33


GOD = MY STRENGTH + MY POWER

Confidence in Him is where life becomes
more tolerable knowing our return is to Him.


"The LORD lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let God be exalted,
The Rock of my salvation!" ~ 2nd Samuel 22:47


He is the truth of eternal salvation.

The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
For who is God, except the Lord? And who is a rock, ... ~ Psalm 18:30-31


HIS WORD = PROVEN
HE = A SHIELD IF TRUST IS IN HIM


The word the Lord delivers is upon all decent and upright,
wherein a call to return to original holiness shines out.


... He is my defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my
glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God. ~ Psalm 62:6-7


No helper is greater than the creator of all. Where we
place our confidence is what defines the rock we worship.


God is:
● My Rock
● My Salvation
● My Defense
● My Glory
● My Glory
● My Refuge


Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully
to the Rock of our salvation. ~ Psalm 95:1


Is not salvation where life lives? In Him we live resoundingly!

... time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His
tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. ~ Psalm 27:5


In the lowest ditch, His hill reaches out, becoming a
merciful mountain comforting the meek to sit higher.
Earth is but a pebble in the rock of His creation.
Fluid are the brushstrokes He paints with time.

What He gives us is Psychic Protection just by knowing He is there.


"Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of
the Almighty? They are higher than heaven-what can you do? ... ~ Job 11:7-9


This concept of God as our rock is rhetorical.
From the highest to the lowest and all that is in-between, it involves
that which is greater than all known, more solidly fundamentally than
the simplest of observations. One can not measure God in relation to
the material. The creator of mountains, His glory screams in all that
we can perceive. Credit needs to be given where it is deserved,
and regarding His omnipotence brings the honor He merits.
No one can see God for He is all things formed and beyond.


The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork. ~ Psalm 19:1


But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city
of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, ... ~ Hebrews 12:22


God is our destination and our home. When one sees eternal life in the
offering of His Grace, no rock of truth is greater. More solid than what we
temporarily see in mortal life, eternity opens realms unseen drawing us to
something larger than life. Those realizing our brief exposure in His sight
are surely humbled for the undeserved gift that will lift us into life in Him.
He waits as much as we do and more. Even if we were to stand upon the
highest peak or gaze from the utmost view, it would utterly be short of His
great heavenly glory, as His staircase opens to eternityís light.


He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. ~ Psalm 40:2


To be right with self, others, and God, one must confer with the majesty
of Godís own truths and allow Him to lift you. In life many pits can
surround one in struggling to achieve a higher sense of sanctuary.
Without God, only a grim descending abyss awaits with no saving
handle holds in sight for climbing to a higher spiritual safety.


From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. ~ Psalm 61:2


To reach out endlessly is to find the sure help He gives. As a part of that
which is greater, solid quiescent peace connects all that would become.
God is the celestial Rock of all.

No rock on earth can match the magnitude of Godís majestic glory.
God's truth rises to touch all. If you have not come to the Lord and
His light of truth, life is at best a fading gleam. More than all the earth
could ever surrender is His gift rising past all that has ever been to a
heavenly realm only imagined where He is the undeniable pulse.
Darkness suffers with the bottom of nothing. As light cuts
truth, appreciation is the ladder that carries a heart.

Sometimes the cross we carry feels like a crushing boulder upon
our backs. No one can deny that mortal life is like climbing a sharp cliff
to reach a better view. The question is what is it we are climbing for?
Many become stuck for one reason or another paralyzing their ability
to act. They remain stationary waiting for time to take its course
with no real influence over the outcome. Stuck between mortal
crushing powers greater than one is able to overcome, relying
upon the Lord extracts one from this limited stifling grip
of human bondage. His is a call to rise.


"But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say? ...
~ Luke 6:46-48


It is a choice not to be left just hanging waiting for circumstance to
decide oneís destiny. Only for those that chisel out a deep foundation
of spirit planted in a contemplative soul endure the inevitable conflicts
that invade the lives of all. The faithful have the confidence of God.


"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken
him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: ..." ~ Matthew 7:24-25


The storms will arise and remain catastrophic for those unprepared.
Without the words of God, the heart is left dry to be washed away.


"'Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I not told you from that time, and
declared it? ... Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one.'" ~ Isaiah 44:8


The light of God has never abandoned us in that it remains for all to see.
He is, and we choose to see or not to see the glory of all.
There is one light that leads all.


"... You who seek the LORD: Look to the rock from which you were hewn,
And to the hole of the pit from which you were dug." ~ Isaiah 51:1


     ┏► Rejecting Godís knowledge advances suffering.
Suffering unjust lies is the root of all of our becoming's. As we rise to know
awareness, He asks we consider the source of life, and from there we can
realize all that is higher than self. It is when His ways are dismissed that
oppression by the few reduces life to that of hardship without mercy.
What God is telling us is to listen and remember
that suffering is what He is saving us from.


... You came down also on Mount Sinai, And spoke with them from heaven, ...
~ Nehemiah 9:11-13


God has spoken timeless times to multitudes of people.
His ark is the tabernacle of life in the light. His knowledge is
abundantly sufficient to decide, either for His ways, or the dead
end terminal ways of manís despicable decadent constructions.
Turning blue is the color of death.

So easy is the forgetfulness of man
to disregard the rock solid virtues given by God.


... and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual
Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ. ~ 1st Corinthians 10:4


The presence of God has never left us. Goodness has
been established to be known. It is man that chooses to forget.
Christ is Godís flame of spirit.


... Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to
righteousness, even the righteousness of faith; ... ~ Romans 9:30-31


Anyone can submit to God as He is the only true God.
God is that He is. In pursuit of His Spirit of goodness,
righteousness is obtained. It is not earned, it is lived.


Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law.
For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. ... ~ Romans 9:32-33


For all that see themselves only as great and accomplished fail to see
the need for redemption from the darkness, from the corridors of all of
our shameful hearts. Many claim to have no sin while basking in their
perceived splendor discounting His mightier glory. It is not man that
approves man, but that honor is reserved for Godís discretion.
               The Lord sees if a heart is true to His good truth. ◄┛


... "Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious
cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily. ...
~ Isaiah 28:16


For this reason Jesus came to call all to be humble in heart to
know self through Him and God in life. It is a call to be thoughtful.


... to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient,
"The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone," ...
~ 1st Peter 2:7-8


                         ┏► Unjust acts avoid answerability.
For the conniving and schemers, true God is more than an
inconvenience, He is an active annoyance to consider in any purposed
thoughts, especially concerning accountability. The conscience of the
wicked has no mercy, which is one of Godís greatest wills,
for man to man, to show compassion for one another.


The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.
~ Psalm 118:22


"... on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades
shall not prevail against it." ~ Matthew 16:16-18


                                                                                                 He came for us to know God. ◄┓
The life of Christ, His crucifixion, and then resurrection, is the rock of
truth that shall not go away. It is the expression of God to sacrifice on our
behalf, releasing each of us to our own lives, rising to be that we are.
Christ builds His church upon Himself calling to individuals over
manipulative conglomerates of man that blur His purpose
for a relationship with Him over man.


For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid,
which is Jesus Christ. ~ 1st Corinthians 3:11


                                               ┏► Love for God and not a creation of man.
It is in truth the resonance of Jesus Christ that sets the air of life in God.
It is not Buddha. It is not Muhammad. It is not Joseph Smith. It is not
John Calvin. It is not Pope Doe. It is not called deities of any other exalted
colorful names or falsely appointed mavericks. No substitution can replace
that which is declared by God Himself, Jesus Christ, in fact, the truth
stops here. Each of us will be judged according to how we build our
life upon Him and no other comparison has as much value. It has
come to be through Him, and not by others, and this is the test
of an honest godly relationship. Man does not supersede God.


"... And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on
whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder." ~ Matthew 21:42-44


To find God in truth humbles the soul in itís exaltation of Him.
Rising in His light of truth, over those that would prefer other made-up
exits leading to the dust of destruction, proclaims the destiny of a soul.


"... And the stone that struck the image became
a great mountain and filled the whole earth." ~ Daniel 2:34-35


... it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms,
and it shall stand forever. ~ Daniel 2:44


... broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold - the
great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. ...
~ Daniel 2:45


It was foretold that Godís own kingdom, overtaking men and their ways,
would be established, remaining supreme to the ends of the ages.
He is the Rock of our salvation. All paths lead to God.


... refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder
than rock; They have refused to return. ~ Jeremiah 5:3


His heart is as hard as stone, ... ~ Job 41:24

Many have fallen bitter hearted with an angry fist raised against God.
More than a cold stone, God asks us to become softly alive in Him.
If one only becomes dead to feeling love, choosing rage for others,
their death walks with them.


Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen
by God and precious, you also, as living stones, ... ~ 1st Peter 2:4-5


His Rock is our rock.
What declares our rock is the walk we choose in life.
To refuse the light He offers dulls the spirit and turns the heart dark.


"... who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will
give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name ..." ~ Revelation 2:17


To be chosen exposes strength of character in Him over hostile
creations of man. We wait for His revealing and our becoming.

It is eternal identity that God offers each penitent soul that comes to Him.


God is a Rock of justice, truth; righteous and upright
Evil godís manifest when one forgets and ignores God
There is no refuge in creations of oneís own making
Manís makings & lies cannot replace the truth of God
Trust in God delivers strength; the refuge of salvation
God is the Rock of our defense
It is a mighty spiritual Rock found in Jesus Christ
Faith and belief in God leads to this righteous Rock
The truth of Jesus Christ is the Rock of His church
Jesus Christ is the only foundation set by God
Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of Godís church on earth
No society of man is greater than the Rock of God
As living stones we offer holy sacrifice in His image

8/28/2016 ~ Destiny is in What we Seek


  destiny.mp3 (49m 38s)


In the absence of light, darkness has no smell.
Seeking is a personal quest for that which one desires to obtain.

"... For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge." ~ Proverbs 1:22


Many choose to live on impulse, either buried in a desperate moment
or just personifying an outrageous presence, on to the next episode.
These types of people care little for others as the plow or
rip into both those near and far from them.


Salvation is far from the wicked, For they do not seek
Your statutes. ~ Psalms 119:155


Unnoticed for many is they are dismissing God by ignoring what He has
announced for humanity to know. By not caring to become familiar with
His knowledge exposes a character of a self seeking, over a thankful
submissive soul regarding that which is larger than all.


... he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is
a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. ~ Hebrews 11:6


I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.
~ Proverbs 8:17


"But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you."
~ Luke 12:31


Spiritual depths have no equal in the turmoil's of living.
Strength of God comes by accepting His grace delivering peace
through hope upwelling from mutual love. One has to be
sober minded to carry a real relationship with God.


"Is not My word like a fire?" says the Lord, ... ~ Jeremiah 23:29

Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. ~ Psalm 34:14

Only each humble heart can admit to how much one has
examined His word concerning His presence among us. Sixty six
books, 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New are open for review.
To miss the Lord is to undermine the deepest reasons for living.


"... set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life,
that both you and your descendants may live; ..." ~ Deuteronomy 30:19


Each of us are presented with choices enabling the blessing
of thankful living or merely rendered to the damnation of cursing
in the midst of wishing death in a blind stupor. Our isolated rage
tells the tale if it suppresses an openness to love. As witness
is God in Heaven and all those who we would encounter
during our stay upon this spatial orb called earth.


"... Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts.
If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him,
He will cast you off forever." ~ 1st Chronicles 28:9


Evil men do not understand justice,
But those who seek the LORD understand all. ~ Proverbs 28:5


Clearly His message contains the path of return to something greater
than can be written. By genuinely seeking Him, He unbiasedly promises
to lift a heart into knowing. How eager is again the choice we choose to
pursue. One only interested in the next beer and or faceless sex reduces
to shallow extremism. True spiritual depth rises past the desire to possess
the material. Do you seek the Eternal Lord in your deepest parts or is it
something more shallow involving just the passing's of the earth?


... And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly,
To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? ~ Micah 6:8


The evidence is overabundant in God reaching out for our return. It
manifests in all that we perceive. The material is a test to find the heart of
what we seek. Is it only for the selfish self or does nobility play notice?


... "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite
and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble,~ Isaiah 57:15


His life paid the price to engage us all in a personal relationship with the
true One and Only Living Lord God. For those that return, the quality of
listening takes action. God is with the soul that humbly falls before Him.
He calls and commands we seek His will.

... filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual
understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him,
being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
~ Colossians 1:9-10


His gifts are delivered in the subtleties of living. It is His will that we find
Him on our own as independent sentient creatures. How close we
become with Him is directly related to the effort we put forth.


... may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation
in the knowledge of Him, ... ~ Ephesians 1:17-18


How could we hope not to have knowledge
releasing the understanding of His true wisdom?


... You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and
outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. ~ Jeremiah 32:17


Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; He is gracious,
and full of compassion, and righteous. ~ Psalms 112:4


He exposes Himself so that we may know how to be
in conduct and godliness. Graciousness and to be full of
compassion and righteousness is to partake in the fruits of the spirit
as well as embrace these qualities as a reward from God.


... which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the
day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; ~ 2nd Peter 1:19


For those that embrace His ways, an eternal light comes to heart. The
fires of eternity cannot be extinguished for in them is no darkness where
we will come to dwell in His light. He calls for us to rise back to Him.


He stretches out the north over empty space;
He hangs the earth on nothing. ~ Job 26:7


Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice.
Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden
In the day of the LORD'S anger. ~ Zephaniah 2:3


... the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt
with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
~ 2nd Peter 3:10


Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons
ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, ... ~ 2nd Peter 3:11-12


A single coronal mass ejection (CME) could quickly extinguish life
on earth if it were the will of God. One of His creations is that He hangs
matter on the edge of nothing. His power to create is immeasurable.
Time itself simultaneously reacts in space as it continually separates;
quite a magnificent displaying of velocities structure and all due to
and of His ingenious enigmatic will. Surely His presence
extends well past knowledge upholding reality itself.
His touch spreads to the edge of eternity.


Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
~ Romans 13:10


Let no one seek his own, but each one the other's well-being.
~ 1st Corinthians 10:24


Pearls abound in the word and any single sermon is grossly inadequate
in expressing all that needs to be considered surrounding our meek lives.


... seek those things which are above, where Christ is, ... ~ Colossians 3:1

The key to living is loving.

Love has been perfected among us in this: that we
may have boldness in the day of judgment; ... ~ 1st John 4:17


... it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is
revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. ~ 1st John 3:2


... who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape
if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, ... ~ Hebrews 12:25


"So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate
the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. ..."
~ Matthew 13:49-50


A situation is coming for all that transcends time itself.
It will be an accounting with that supreme of all fateful awakening
occurrences. It will define life over death unveiling all secrets. It will
be soberly plain as justice is true for each soul before Him. May the
gravity of this event find one prepared as its' finality is eternal.

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy,
and keep those things which are written in it; ... ~ Revelation 1:3


It is in His word saints find sanctuary that no weapon can destroy.
The message has always been that time is near, for each of us,
one breath close.

9/18/2016 ~ Physical Science of God



  science1am.mp3 (41m 38s)                 science2pm.mp3 (32m 28s)
  

Darkness rides on the heels of light.
In all that is, Godís presence is what establishes reality.
No matter any of our speculations, it is the way God has it.

I suppose there comes a time in every preacherís career where he wishes
to take back a sermon that went south. Generally these failure sermons
teach the preacher more than those waiting to leave. This was one of
those sermons. Errors arose because I tried to fit His inspired word to
match my contemporary world knowledge. In studying Godís word we
must remain open to be transformed by it, in order to come closer to
Godís truth, over any pre-conceived notions. I had always exalted light
in itsí purest form putting it at the top of the creation chain, how could
anything be greater? And this matched how I was raised, understanding
ďThe Big BangĒ theory. My fellow brethren helped my error in reasoning.


The biggest thing I learned was to see creation in a new light. I had never
really considered the creation of matter before light. I saw Genesis 1:1 as
a summary statement, more than a literal sequence of events. The light
came on when I took His word as truer than how I was trying to change it.
I believe this problem with fitting the Big Bang to match scripture
is widespread and very prevalent in our modern day culture.

I do leave this sermon intact below to point out how easy it is to
misunderstand, and those vices or convincing illustrations that may
be used. I believe I innocently deceived myself as my true intent was to
honor and glorify God. God is glorified in that He teaches the preachers
too. If I rebuilt this sermon it would drastically change to state how the
world misinterprets Godís word. Whereas there is not a ďBig BangĒ as
the original creation event, certain principles and natural laws may still
be applicable as to how the present functions physically. Whatever it is
chosen to be called, Steady Expanding State or whatever, I believe the
present can be described with many of the Big Bang characteristics as
space and time exhibits behaviors consistent with itsí initial propagating
premise. It is just how this propagation commenced that we will never
really accurately know. I certainly cannot explain miracles or when and
where they may have occurred. I see life in the moment as a miracle,
with the ability of lifting the faithful closer to that higher truth, where
trust and belief opens the heart to His will, and immeasurable joy
connects with the divine. Largely, we should just be thankful that
it has come to be that it is, a local event at all real points. In His
realm for us it is the present that we should be most concerned
about identifying, over distant speculations. I will most definitely
be reluctant to give another involved sermon on science.
Forgive the following errors, where included, below:


Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, ...
~ Job 38:19


What is under examination is the consideration of
light in the darkness or darkness in the light.


NO LIGHT
SPIRIT
OF GOD

OUTSIDE
GOD










DARKNESS
DEEP
EMPTINESS


The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of
the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
~ Genesis 1:2


God is witness to that which was not before creation, reality from the
void of nothing. It is the quantum foundation of darkness that supports
the extent and expanse of physical light. From both below and above,
God has established what light forms into. It is His universe given to us
to know of Him. Discovery is an endless journey into perceiving Him.
┗► Eternal life exists independent before the confines of time.


And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. ~ Colossians 1:17

Belief can be in many instances a matter of opinion, and in itsí many
forms it has certainly caused divisions among countless generations
of mankind. If we agree that God is supreme and creation is of His
understanding and wisdom, why would it be wrong to see God in what we
can observe in the natural universe, and cleave to how it may match up
with His inspired word? Are we to diligently seek Him out with our all?

More often it is man condemning man over developing clarity and
I do not believe God would want us to not understand, as His call is
for us to understand. As one day is a thousand years, where do we
draw the literal line in understanding His truth? Let us remain open
and pray to return to sensibility over confusion among men.

Clearly, before matter or light as we know it, God viewed deep darkness
in the empty void of pre-creation. This darkness existed outside of God.
Mentioned is this lightless realm primed to be creationís womb
where His introduction of light would come forth.


Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. ~ Genesis 1:3

             .             

In the empty void, the shear presence of God brought out
onward light into the nothingness. No power is greater or could be.

It is not said that the Spirit of God is separate from His creation.


And God saw the light, that it was good; and
God divided the light from the darkness. ~ Genesis 1:4


He remains with oversight of all ongoings.
Then light separated in and between areas swirling in voids of darkness.

Overall, Light serves Godís purpose in separating good from bad as
the butter of life is clarified. His presence qualifies in all that has shine.
Light emancipates onward as darkness fades away to the distances of
below or above, both synonymous extremes in the realm of unending
darkness. The end of darkness is the beginning of light.


He drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters,
At the boundary of light and darkness. ~ Job 26:10


Origin of
Our Universe

.




                                                                            

We need God to define science, not science to define God.
As perceived chaos shatters across the calm, His is the substance of
creation maintaining in and out at all real points known. To this inclusive
absolute light, impinging upon the present at all real points, it exposes His
exquisite delicate violent free beauty, with the circle or sphere as the first
geometric object. The sphere is the most naturally occurring symmetrical
form in the universe as it is the base form of nature itself.


... as yet He had not made the earth or the fields,
Or the primeval dust of the world. ... ~ Proverbs 8:26-27

                                     ┗► Pure light came before swirling particles in the darkness.

No matter what logical conjecture may be presented,
it is Godís plan and His will that will eventually win out
over any and all errors we may make as human beings.
For us light has been separated as it intermingles with the darkness.
The sphere of light is the origin of our universe by the declaration of
God Himself as He draws the circle on the face of the deep. He also
declares it is a universe of purpose for life in His image with
His wisdom taking precedence over all.


"I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity;
I, the LORD, do all these things." ~ Isaiah 45:7


Not only is the universe a stage of what is to come
as light evaporates upon the darkness, it is an announcement
to all angels and hopeful striving human life. It is a witness, where
each soul must resolve both internal and external existence in Him,
over denning His omniscient unending presence.

Both a physical darkness and a spiritual darkness confronts us.
Darkness is set, just beyond the nugget of light, prepared for those
choosing to remain alone swelling in loneliness, separate from Him and
His ordinances. Unavoidable is both physical and spiritual considerations
in such the lives we live. The spiritual realm supersedes and preexists
the physical universe. Fundamentally, Godís universe is perfect created
for His pleasure maintaining the redemptive qualities of retrieving His
autonomous children of light. It is in His shadow that we see His light,
given of His everlasting bosom comes pure absolute love, in
creation above knowledge. Light is Godís nipple to mankind.

For the material universe, God creates both minimum inert matter at
relative rest in relation to hyper active velocities approaching what is
maximum. In search for the smallest of initial primeval particles, linear
accelerators have blasted particles up against aluminum plates
in hydrogen bubble chambers. The tracks left from these particle
annihilations are insinuated to be the soup of the original creation,
just after the introduction of light. Note the circular vanishings as the
inward containment releases outward. Labs like CERN, a circular
accelerator, smash particles into each other to further examine these
smallest of forms that exist in matter, distinct from photon propagation.

Substances called out, such as Charm and Strange lead to
the Boson of sub atomic particles, as they parabolicly hold witness in
the hyperbolic creation that unfolds before us all. Dividing matter leaps
beyond observation as we cannot perceive the edge that maintains reality.
God has made elusive and curious His endless present moment.

The mathematical Pi screams out defining His endless spiral
into creation at all points. Lessons of His wisdom surely blaze forward
in all that is coming from His purposed loving call, given to all; His
creation of free life in His image: to be aware of more than self.


"Known to God from eternity are all His works." ~ Acts 15:18

A main component of the present is itsí reflections of past actions
affecting continuing unfoldingís, as a curtain reveals what is to come
from that which has been. At the speed of light all expands enlarging
and becoming more diffuse as deep darkness welcomes the light. It
is His enduring timeless presence that calls upon life touching all.


... the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
~ Hebrews 11:3


                                     ┏► He remains timeless watching creation unfold.
The paradox of His truth is that all remains real from the beginning
where nothing is hidden, though we cannot perceive this as it is, being
physically isolated, from what is wholly present. Light has spiraled
intermingling around the deep dark voids God created for motion to affect
upon itself, as substance, in all of itsí forms, continues to commence.
Time opens the portal of change and synthesizes becoming.


He alone spreads out the heavens, And treads on the waves of the sea.
~ Job 9:8

The         
Present      

What appears to be true observationally, for us, may
or may not be true, but it is finally the way God has done it.
In the bubble of motion, time hinges from the beginning viewing
the end result, which is the present. To see God is to know His extent
surpasses all that is in the shadow of timeís passing. The past reflects
all that has come from the source of His endless presence. Absolute
Time is singular and cannot be dissected as separate components,
as distinctly given by the law of God in His one expanse.

Time dilation maintains various references unique to local conditions, but
no matter what real reality is, it can never be removed from the present.


The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
By understanding He established the heavens; ~ Proverbs 3:19


God with His wisdom created the heavens, and such is the structure of
His universe, for us to witness the darkness swallowing the light. Modern
science can only perceive some 5% of the visible universe where 27%
is estimated as dark matter, and 68% is unexplainable Dark Energy.

Dark Energy is quintessentially the greatest modern day mystery
in cosmology. It has been labeled the quintessence of the
universe as it appears that the expansion of the universe
is uncharacteristically and perplexingly increasing.
We are deceived by variable expansion rates. ◄┛


... stretched out the heaven by His understanding. ~ Jeremiah 51:15

Though we are confused by what we see, God is not. By His power He
established truth as plain as can be. It is given to us to comprehend what
has been set before all. His word declares an expansion is the order of
law. His way is consistent while we struggle to clearly rise from obscure
misconceptions and or inconsistencies in perceived observations.

What can not be denied is that the present hovers upon every
isolated finite moment, as eternity extends out beyond each point.
Since the majority of, if not all of reality, cannot be observed,
creative thinking and keen insight is required to expose
that which is beyond mere mortal comprehension.


Of old You laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the work of Your hands. ~ Psalms 102:25


They will perish, but You will endure; Yes, they will all grow old
like a garment; Like a cloak You will change them, ... ~ Psalms 102:26


But You are the same, And Your years will have no end. ~ Psalms 102:27

While God has declared that He has never removed Himself
from His absolute creation, He has isolated all in creation to the
confines of time in a fading concentration of His initial pure energy.
Thermodynamics is a result of time.


"... From the beginning, before there was ever an earth." ~ Proverbs 8:22-23

God in His word arranged all by an intelligence we can
only hope to fathom, half less imagine. It is that He is.


In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. ~ Genesis 1:1

It is Godís creation, not ours. To achieve understanding,
it can only be acquired by humbly approaching God Himself.
The general question is how did light come to be as we see it.


... "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together
into one place, and let the dry land appear"; ~ Genesis 1:9


TIMESPACE SEPERATES IN DARKNESS


    Origin of
Our Universe                  
          



          
         The
   Beginning
            









          
The         
Present      
Not SpaceTime but TimeSpace Defines Reality.

The clues have all been given. One space, one time, one expanse.
The answer lies in the present, or that which we can and cannot perceive.


          
   Isolated from absolute light is our test in His Spirit   
          

Godís original creation or flash of light is beyond what we can observe,
as is the past gone by. We know the past is not retrievable though
itsí image surrounds all that lies ahead.


... the heavens for height and the earth for depth, ... ~ Proverbs 25:3

"Is not God in the height of heaven? And see the highest stars,
how lofty they are!" ~ Job 22:12


           
   Top or bottom is referenced by position as a coin flips   
           

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. ~ Psalms 33:6


The paradox is that the future unfolds from past reflections in the present.


   The past reflects upon the present engaging the future   
 

God declares that at every point, a condition of top to bottom exists.
All points maintain this extreme position of bottom to top or top to bottom.
It is how reality slips forward unified as one, and it is the web of the
present. The present is universal whereas amazingly most of the
present is a construct of the past. The past is real where the future
is yet to be, while the future holds this bulk of the past. Each point is
surrounded by past images. To gaze to the end of the universe is to
look further back in the previous Ďpresentsí of time. The speed of light
is the wind of time. All that has been is still contained in the absolute
image of what is. As God declares, nothing is hidden from Him.


      
   An expanding Universe employs the slowing of time   
      

The farther back one goes in time
the smaller the physical universe becomes, and this
conjecture comes from our observations of the nature of light.



   Time unwinds at light speed swelling from the past   
 

Also, we know from relativity that this compression of distance
shortens time sequences and should increase speeds. This is not
physically observable except for clues in what currently mystifies us,
concerning Dark Energy. It is more than apparent that the initial creation
days of our universe, that now appears to be eons longer, could actually be
due to these expansion and variable speed considerations. In fact time flows
forward at the Ďpresentí speed of light, allowing the present to remain in
one place, universally. Whereas the speed of light may fluctuate over
the eons of time, it could never be noticed as such in the present.


The Speed of Light dictates time and has
varied over past volume expansion rates

    
   The Speed of Light is the Wind of Time   
    

Unbeknownst to each of us is that we are expanding at light speed;
we just donít know it because it is unperceivable to us, as is our 65,000
miles/hour around the sun, and then 500,000 miles/hour about the core
of the Milky Way galaxy, or then, yes, in fact, the speed of light in relation
to the edge of the universe. The speed of light is the minimum speed,
and it is the basis for the flow of time itself. If we could stop time, and look
to a static past section, of even our own lives, whereas our mass would
remain, our volume would be found to be ever increasing. Our present self
would appear to be gigantic to our younger self. From one moment to the
next, as the universe increases in size, so does all that exists. I want to
emphasize that if we could see this change over time, we would be
ginormous in relation to what we physically were in years past.
Earth in the past was the size of a current grain of sand.

We currently observe a universe with a diameter of roughly 28 billion
light years, and of course, this is based upon our current observation of
the speed of light. We assume this diameter on being able to Ďsupposedlyí
observe 14 billion light years out in any single arbitrary direction. While
the universe is known to be expanding, it is estimated that the actual
Ďpresentí diameter is 93 billion light years, again, based
upon observations of the current speed of light.

          ┏► Work has yet to begin using a more accurate universal model.
What baffles modern science is why the universe appears to be
accelerating based on extremely distant Super Nova observations.
This Dark Energy dilemma is easily remedied with this past higher
density and acceleration consideration. We are fooled in believing the
universe is older than it actually is whereas the diameter may be correct.

The current speed of light is a snailís pace in relation to distant
racing speeds. What we observe is of a remnant once gone by, while
in a space much smaller, when a higher velocity image was yet to fall
before us, now just slowing coming in to current view. It is not
reality that deceives us, it is we that deceive ourselves.


... For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning, ... ~ Isaiah 46:9-10


Clearly He created the end at the same moment He created
the beginning. God made a universe where we can actually see
His timelessness right in front of us, though it requires a leap of faith into
that which is for us, unperceivable, the present, as we witness the past.
The shear mass of the surrounding universe holds past images coming
at us. Much of the future is already in transit, all the way back to the
beginning, or as it is, our searching out to the ends of this universe.



   What has been is part of the eternal view coming forth   
 

... dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, ...
~ 1st Timothy 6:16


"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord,
"who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." ~ Revelation 1:8


"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,
the First and the Last." ~ Revelation 22:13



   The touch of God reaches from beginning to end   
 

Curiosity is one of the gifts given of God. God has always known,
and what is understandable to Him is for us to discover. By grace he has
given us the abilities to realize the depth and the width of realities present.

It should be noted that the Big Bang Theory is not provable. Miraculous
creation could take precedence over current speculations and or apparent
observations. We should continue to study to realize what He shares with
us to know. If it is anything that is done by us, and it does not include God,
then the clarity of truth is compromised, as it is His creation and not ours.

In His word He reveals the secrets of truth plainly taught. The simple of
heart see higher than those weighted down with the heavy corridors of
endless learning, struggling, yet never understanding. Extreme zealous
hearts for one argument or another can lead to fanatical rejection of
simple truths, that He wants us all to understand. A stubborn heart
can be blinded without the submissive call for His help. This is not the will
of God for man to rebel in arrogant disgust and contempt for one another
mired in animosities. His lessons enlighten the wise to see turning to that
which is better. Clearly, His creation stretches from the beginning to the
end which contains these same two points as equal, embracing all that
is included in between as the absolute present. God is so great He
shows Himself in creation by being more than what can be seen.
Great be our visible invisible God!


Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, And He
who formed you from the womb: ... ~ Isaiah 44:24


God has established what is for the benefit of His eternal creation.
He waits for His creation to come back to Him, both metaphorically united
and physically connected, as in all that He has done, His call is to return.
The evidence is in all that He has created. Jesus is His, our portal,
for the redemption of mankind.


It is God that Declares Reality
The Spirit of God existed prior to light as we know it
God is before all things and is in all things
God created light from which all has come
God created darkness for light to commence
God divided the light from the darkness
The circle forms the boundary of light and darkness
He was before the formation of matter
The universe is made of things which are not visible
Thermodynamics of Time is in an expanding universe
Godís purpose has been clear from the beginning
God created a singular location present space universe
Godís universe maintains bottom to top at all points
Godís pure light is unapproachable and unperceivable
Godís begins now extending through all to the finish

Godís Light is Everlasting.
Darkness has no hope.


The universe of light in the darkness is Godís creation. It is a test of souls
to whether they pursue lust for creation or thankfulness for the creator.


For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.
~ Hebrews 3:4


More than this sermon can ever express is the all of God. He has made
everything so life can experience the uniqueness of living in an endless
realm of dissolving material light. In this God touches us with
His eternal being while He calls for us to search Him out.


The works of the LORD are great, Studied by all who have pleasure in them.
~ Psalm 111:2


What little clues are written in His word, that deal with His creation,
challenge us to seek out what and why He has ordered it the way He has.
What a wonderful creation that is more for the essence of living than the
prolific deaths we witness. He watches for those who want to know.


Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?
Can you set their dominion over the earth? ~ Job 38:33


God displays His truths by example.
Expanses of light and darkness litter the view we perceive.


... Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust
of the earth in a measure? ... ~ Isaiah 40:12


He indicates that accurate measurement, both small and large, is at most,
a best guess, with absolute exactness impossible, as His expanse leaves
our local experience more than rapidly with motion considerations untold.
He has established His universe where question is simple with
reaching answers. Independence is the origin of His creation.


... a weight for the wind, And apportion the waters by measure. When He
made a law for the rain, And a path for the thunderbolt, ... ~ Job 28:25-26


He instructs us to the nature of density and concentration of particles
causing excited friction. Energy from the simplest of interactions
accumulate to release in reattaching to a more inward bound mass.


By what way is light diffused, Or the east wind scattered over the earth?
~ Job 38:24


We are challenged to engage understanding with light, in either
emission or absorption, from and to all the various forms of matter.


... The Lord has His way In the whirlwind and in the storm,
And the clouds are the dust of His feet. ~ Nahum 1:3


The LORD certainly causes calamity in the vortex of becoming,
where He rises past what we perceive. He reminds us that to live
above anger is where the abode of peace remains. God is
judge of all that occurs under the clouds of His creation.
He who is not for God is against God. The
wicked have a homeless destination.


... He made the Bear, Orion, and the Pleiades, And the chambers of the south;
He does great things past finding out, Yes, wonders without number.
~ Job 9:8-10


                                     ┏► Faith must establish science for it to be more realistic.
The nature of our universe can only end up being an assumption where
first hand visualizations are impossible. A key clue is that the southern
extreme attempts to attach at the bottom of substance. Long understood
is that 'going south' is reaching downward or a dropping away.


He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.
~ Job 26:7

The northern extreme would attach in an upward attempt to connect.
These definitions explains our duel parabolic hyperbolic nature as
time passes. As for hanging the earth on nothing, is not the darkness
of nothing the foundation for the entrance of Godís creation of light?
                        ┗► Only faith in the unperceivable opens our portal to truth.


For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen,
being understood by the things that are made, ... ~ Romans 1:20


His greatness unfolds before all as a lesson for remembrance to
something larger than life. It is the will of God as the life giver
to allow freedom to find, and know of, His surety, as it is.
What one believes reveals the heart God waits to see.


And He changes the times and the seasons; ... He reveals deep and secret
things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.
~ Daniel 2:21-22


Temporalities of time mesh with desires to know as
He allows what is to be. He has established darkness for
light to hover around, and knows exactly why it is that it is.
What is wisdom but knowledge understood.


"... light? And darkness, where is its place, That you may take it to its
territory, That you may know the paths to its home?" ~ Job 38:18-20


    Without true knowledge wisdom evaporates. ◄┓
Along with all of the challenges of not knowing, He tasks us to know,
or at least to question the reasons for darkness, both physically and
metaphorically. It is perplexing to call darkness home but it is a place, and
what He declares this universe has been established upon, nothing. Out
of nothing, His is more than what is, and that says more than can be said.


... God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. ~ 1st John 1:5

Light is the basis for Godís beginning, for us, over us.
Darkness is the void where He created that which was not part of Him.


"I clothe the heavens with blackness, And I make sackcloth their covering."
~ Isaiah 50:3


As He expresses His light, darkness invades
covering light over with empty distance as time passes.


"... 'And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness.
There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' " ~ Matthew 25:30


He specifically speaks of an outer darkness separate from the light
He attaches to. In the extremes, a point of light would be perceptible,
whereas total detachment from light would deliver a rangeless scope
of nothing, not even a point of light for reference.


... raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars
for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. ~ Jude 1:13


There is a darkness where black has no color. It remains in isolation void
of light in any form of substance. Some scriptures intuitively encompass
more than one subject, such as here, explaining the physical nature of
spirituality. Defining physical attributes of His whole essence
includes the nature of His brilliant integrity. A destiny awaits
for those that reject His truth absent of His presence.


"'A land as dark as darkness itself, As the shadow of death,
without any order, Where even the light is like darkness.'" ~ Job 10:22


There is a realm where life has no meaning when darkness
overtakes the light, casting it off, in the endless distance of nowhere.


God Reveals His Presence



             .             




Lightís Extreme Edge
     



                           




Extremeness of no Light

Lift up your eyes on high, And see who has created these things, Who brings
out their host by number; He calls them all by name, ... ~ Isaiah 40:26


To see what is and how it is structured for the benefit of all,
one must look up to see the truths of His order. Acceptance of His
understanding allows a clearer picture of why it is. To let God answer for
His own creation informs us as to why the oceans freely rage across time
cracking from the melting heat of ago.


Its rising is from one end of heaven, And its circuit to the other end;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat. ~ Psalm 19:6


His stars, all counted and named, have presence touching the entirety
of His creation. Again, He declares no separation in the present
structure of His creation. His warmth is of what is life giving.


He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our
Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. ~ Psalms 147:4-5


To rely on God to allow us to know,
what better instructor could be but He who knows all?


... There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory
of the stars; for one star differs from another star ... ~ 1st Corinthians 15:40-41


┏► The entire universe is a model of an energy machine.     
More about other stars and their bodies, we will never know, but
interactions of what is close and far have integral importance. The entire
universe could reflect the smallest of His creations. How profound to be
in this magnificent existence where the macro mirrors the micro.


... Who gives the sun for a light by day, The ordinances of the moon
and the stars for a light by night, Who disturbs the sea, And its waves roar ...
~ Jeremiah 31:35


Long known before mankindís understanding took hold is where forces
stretch out across space. Without the moon our oceans would remain
stagnate cesspools. Proximity has direct correlation to the amount
of disruptive forces bodies have upon one another.


"The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which
are revealed belong to us and to our children ... ~ Deuteronomy 29:29


God has not only established all natural laws, but he has set
spiritual ordinances governing His creation of sentient life in order.
For us not to follow God can only blind those who would care to know.
The Lord has created many things for the benefit of creation even
if unbeknownst to us, so that we may live in an existence of
temporarily becoming, as He watches for our awakening.
Most of what is knowable we will never know.


It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings
is to search out a matter. ~ Proverbs 25:2


God in His great understanding has challenged us
to live knowing those things special to His creation.


"Indeed heaven and the highest heavens belong to the LORD
your God, also the earth with all that is in it." ~ Deuteronomy 10:14


His creation and all that it contains still falls short of a greater truth
yet to be revealed, to all that live in the flesh of mankind of woman.
If you are not in to the Lord you deny that which is part of yourself.
The true glory is that He gives all that is. Certainly God has made all
through His understanding and if we are to be anything concerning being
scientifically adept, to the nature of reality, we must consider all that He
has revealed. It is God that teaches us, not that we teach God, and He
graciously has given the clues to eternal truths. And what have we done
with the little truth of parabolic light being converted to hyperbolic? -
Nuclear weapons that terrorize the meek and oppress the masses?
Shame on man for his lust for power over considerations of love.


God shares Himself with His creation
It is God that has made all and it is His works we observe
God challenges us to know more than we can
Only God has the power to measure anything
He is the creator of matter interactions releasing energy
Endless are the questions of lights wind
He brings about the southís bottom rising to the northís top
Godís invisible attributes allow us to see God
He knows darkness as it is, a physical place beyond light
God has nothing to do with where darkness resides
He allows darkness to intermingle in His creation of light
There is an outer darkness void of God in blackness
Absolute darkness has an orderless lifeless existence
God exposes Himself in His distant creation
No light is hidden in His creation as He knows all
The Lord placed the moon with physical purpose for life
We can only know what God allows as He asks us to know
All belongs to the Lord

It is amazing that in search to understand God, or for that matter any
clarity, hate is so pervasive. Self-deceptions of power and festering greed
mired in jealousies steal from the humble that search to know and care
simply, for the families and children they love. Our nations have
lost innocence as we search to know in the shadows of terror
and where impulsiveness has crippled decent maturity.

Each of us holds ignorance as our greatest quality, which is
unnoticed by the arrogant Ďknowing,í as they yell, ďCome to me,Ē
while God shows us all, ĎSee Me.í As I am inclined to astronomical
quantum truths, this study has been geared in perceiving His
physical spatial creation over that of the life sciences.

Greater than any physical truth is His coming judgment of souls.
It would be our greatest regret not to meet the Light of All discarded to the
darkness. Come He calls to all free in Him where choice declares destiny.
Our need for Him is great as all fall short of what He calls us out to be.



His truths cannot be replaced.
Darkness has no sound of sense.

Darkness carries nothing to see.
Anger is the cancer of peace.

"Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath, ...
~ Ephesians 4:26


Too many have split over trifles that escalate past the softness of
forgiveness. One should choose to be upset with what causes one
to fall away from the peace of a true relationship with God first, and
then too earnestly carry more peace with others. Anger is the plague
of all times and especially for us today as it tragically infests the
roadways across our land. Arrogance has it that no one is going
to do me wrong, too often attacking without reason. And what
damage has been done from the extremely poor selfish leadership
we are all stricken with. Without respect for a higher source,
hate freely swims in itsí misery biting all in itsí raging path.


Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed,
and be still. ... put your trust in the LORD ~ Psalms 4:4-5


Our anger should be focused upon a riled heart not controlling self
in the spirit of love. We need to pray for His will to help bring about
what is best in us. Lack of trust in God only exacerbates
desperation and agitates the heart unnecessarily.


Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret - it only causes harm.
~ Psalms 37:8


It is a command of God not to be irrationally angry. Not only does
headaches over agony steal any bliss, it diverges from the deep gifts
of spirit He offers to each of us who are able to fully trust in Him.


He who is slow to wrath has great understanding,
But he who is impulsive exalts folly. ... ~ Proverbs 14:29-30


Contention is the order of our times. How rotten have we become lacking
the spiritual life that inspires our children to achieve more. Our leadership
is compromised by the animosities we hold from the top down.

It all but appears that Godly fear is far from those who tyrannically
claim the answers to our social diseases rest with them.


Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from
your desires for pleasure that war in your members? ... ~ James 4:1-3


Without clear calm thinking our children are being raised
to naturally revolt. The anger from the top trickles down
invading the peace of the simple.


For wrath kills a foolish man, And envy slays a simple one. ~ Job 5:2

Envy swirls in an unsettled soul.

"But the hypocrites in heart store up wrath; They do not cry for help ..."
~ Job 36:13-14


Often the young ignorantly die before true maturity and wisdom takes
a turn to higher order thinking. The self can consumes one in isolation.


The merciful man does good for his own soul, But he
who is cruel troubles his own flesh. ~ Proverbs 11:17


Cruelty destroys what little peace may be had
leaving the heart disturbed in constant turmoil.


... Then the LORD said, "Is it right for you to be angry?" ~ Jonah 4:3-4

For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation
through our Lord Jesus Christ, ... ~ 1st Thessalonians 5:9


Wrath is reserved for God against those that turn from His ways.
We are instructed to resign to sorrow and pleas for help,
but not to leap over to senseless anger.


A man of great wrath will suffer punishment;
For if you rescue him, you will have to do it again. ~ Proverbs 19:19


There is repeat offenders that live to hate all others. The truth of one
who continually chooses evil over good is very condemning indeed.


Make no friendship with an angry man, And with a furious man do not go,
Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul. ~ Proverbs 22:24-25


Anger begets anger and it is advised to avoid those who
are unable to exercise self control. A wild man cures no one.


An angry man stirs up strife, And a furious man abounds in transgression.
~ Proverbs 29:22


A wrathful man stirs up strife, But he who is slow to anger allays contention.
~ Proverbs 15:18


Hot heads alienate the meek while cool
collected heads inspire all they encounter.


A quick-tempered man acts foolishly,
And a man of wicked intentions is hated. ~ Proverbs 14:17


Truly those that defy decency and courtesy
earn the public contempt they deserve.


Wrath is cruel and anger a torrent, But who is able to stand before jealousy?
~ Proverbs 27:4


For jealousy is a husband's fury; Therefore
he will not spare in the day of vengeance. ~ Proverbs 6:34


Obsessive possession of others enrages those
engulfed in the claws of loss. Jealousy is vain sickness.


Better to dwell in the wilderness, Than with a contentious and angry woman.
~ Proverbs 21:19


Wickedness is found in the needles disgust throws in itsí unsatisfied spew.

... Says the LORD of hosts. "Therefore take heed to your spirit,
That you do not deal treacherously." ~ Malachi 2:16


Without love understanding is all but void where the treacherous prowl.

Consider the wages of anger
Do not rest on your anger
Be angry with sin and trust in the Lord
Fretting or anger only does harm; cease from wrath
Slow to anger shows great understanding
Greed and envy is notorious for breeding anger
Anger troubles the soul - find His salvation
The Lord instructs us to carry sorrow over anger
Some are unable to fend off anger and obtain peace
Avoid the angry as they stir up strife
A quick-tempered man acts foolishly inviting hatred
Jealousy is an extreme form of anger
Suffering goes hand and hand with an angry partner
Treachery involves the intent to do violence

Darkness has no regard for light.
Anger steals the love God intended for us.
For one to rise past anger, love has to overpower contempt.


... And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door.
And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it." ~ Genesis 4:6-7


In rage madness can cause one to bark unkindly.
It is the command of God that we should rule over this weakness
to pounce upon others unjustly. We must rule over our emotions
rather than having our emotions rule over us.


A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.
~ Proverbs 29:11


Fools lack the wisdom to restrain uncontrolled emotional outbursts.

Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests
in the bosom of fools. ~ Ecclesiastes 7:9


"By your patience possess your souls." ~ Luke 21:19

Again, God instructs us to take command
of our spirit and possess our souls.


Wisdom is too lofty for a fool; He does not open his mouth in the gate.
He who plots to do evil Will be called a schemer. ~ Proverbs 24:7-8


Fools lack character and stumble as they plot the demise of others
in the perception of lifting themselves. Instead of asking God for
guidance and forgiveness, a fool will arrogantly plot his way
through destructive anger excusing behavior rather than
wisely accessing character improvements.


He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. ~ Proverbs 16:32


Self-control is one of the highest premiums in living a life to
the fullest potential that it can offer; in the utmost evaluation
it reaps spiritual rewards that transcend the eternal.


Whoever has no rule over his own spirit
Is like a city broken down, without walls. ~ Proverbs 25:28


There is no defense for an angry fool.

He who has knowledge spares his words,
And a man of understanding is of a calm spirit. ~ Proverbs 17:27


Knowledge is key in reaching understanding which directly
influences spirit over the lower cardinal desires of flesh.


The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger,
And his glory is to overlook a transgression. ~ Proverbs 19:11


Thoughtfulness inspires mercy.

But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.
~ 2nd Timothy 2:23


Too often festering anger fuels more than is reasonable.
Road rage for instance terrorizes the land leaving carnage upon all hearts.
Enraged irritable hearts scorn others without the calm compassion God
created for us to be, and to passionately show love for one another.
A land without God is surely to be pitied.


A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
~ Proverbs 15:1


Caring hearts are the medicine most mothers preserve for their children.
Anger is rebellion away from the unity we seek, for in our families,
and generally, among our fellow countrymen.


Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth,
but what is good for necessary edification, ... ~ Ephesians 4:29


Anger is often associated with vulgar speech
as it rips into the pain contempt holds.


"But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother
without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. ... ~ Matthew 5:22


To have understanding over condemnation frees a soul to soar
reaching truly unlimited heights. Flat anger shunts the vertical connection
with the eternal. Some people live to complain about just everything,
including their own lives. This is not living but suffering a slow death.
To be upset just for the sake of being upset severs the heart
from the joy God wants us to embrace.

Anger seems to have different extents or depths.
Simply, one could be a compulsive complainer. More severe
would be judging another as stupid. The greatest depth
would be to actual hate or loathe a specific individual.


A gift in secret pacifies anger, And a bribe behind the back, strong wrath.
~ Proverbs 21:14


Tender gifts in love draws smiles from even dragons.

... let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath
of man does not produce the righteousness of God. ~ James 1:19-20


Classic to His word is to listen patiently avoiding petty wrath. Knowledge
again is key and instrumental in producing a sound soul, or for that matter,
a civilization built upon decency and respect. Without knowledge the
wisdom of righteousness is trampled by the wrathful ignorant.
What is wrapped around oneís little finger owns
oneís moment; patience or impatience.


... put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy,
filthy language out of your mouth. ~ Colossians 3:8


A clean heart is a controlled heart.
More often than not it is our mouth that expresses our anger.
Relentless at times, we have all heard zip it.


Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
~ Colossians 3:21


Anger is a vicious cycle destroying the hearts of the young advancing
rebellion and disrespect for all. There is no love where children are
abandoned to the wolves of their own making. Social diseases can
only be cured by a return to God sincerely beseeching His mercy.


... to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle,
showing all humility to all men. ~ Titus 3:2


We are all just single fragile souls.
His call reaches out for all true believers to humble themselves,
releasing despicable anger and adopting a gracious nature.


Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking
be put away from you, with all malice. ... ~ Ephesians 4:31-32


It is not hard to understand what God desires.
It is in the application that we find the challenge; to leave
the beast behind one must take on those attributes He declares.


Anger is a foolís paradise
Anger is buried deep in the spirit of a fool
Fools do not seek understanding
Control over the spirit refines the mighty
A calm knowledgeable man is cautious in his words
Willpower is what brings forgiveness of others
Avoid foolish and ignorant disputes
Answer softly rather than harshly
In all you say, may it impart grace to the hearers
Gifts given privately heal anger
Swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath
Do not provoke your children
Find peace and be gentle in all humility to all
Forgive one another, just as God in Christ forgave you

Darkness holds only numbness.
Kindness overcomes anger.
Light is an opportunity to shine while in the fading darkness.
It is a fact that anger is one letter short of danger.


God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day.
~ Psalms 7:11


Patiently God waits for souls to gain a sense of right and wrong.
His anger will condemn all that is wicked.


... The Lord is slow to anger and great in power,
And will not at all acquit the wicked. ... ~ Nahum 1:2-3


There will be no mercy for those that show no mercy
and are against His called for ways.


Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? ~ Psalms 2:1

... they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a
debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; ... ~ Romans 1:28-31


Foolish ones claim superiority in their wrath as
destiny will claim them to the ungodly pit they sow.


... And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. ~ Psalms 2:11-12


Unless the rage is silenced and trust put in God,
unending turmoil will devour souls in darkness.


"... in the latter days, because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to
provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands." ~ Deuteronomy 31:29


There are those that plot seeking their own gain over glorifying God.
Selfish self-seeking souls will not gain His favor.


... For a fire is kindled by My anger, And shall burn to the lowest hell;
It shall consume the earth with her increase, ... ~ Deuteronomy 32:21-22


As worship skews to become entertaining for the privileged,
He will not recognize the proud heights they will fall from.


"So the LORD'S anger was aroused against Israel, and He
made them wander in the wilderness forty years, ..." ~ Numbers 32:13


Messages have been given to submit in thankful prayer
to Him over the arrogance of self-seeking complainers.
To be content in that He is is to possess value beyond compare.


So the LORD became angry with Solomon, because his heart
had turned from the LORD God ... ~ 1st Kings 11:9-10


To turn to oneís own ways against the will of God
will invite His fierce wrath upon His revealing.


If you say, "Surely we did not know this," Does not He
who weighs the hearts consider it? ... ~ Proverbs 24:12


Ignorance may not be enough as goodness is a form of eternal truth.
One must seek deeply asking His divine inspiration to expose the truth
humbly. There are fundamental truths that can not be changed
as a soul approaches the supreme of all deities.


Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things
the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. ~ Ephesians 5:6


Excuses are water in the sand. People try to justify why it is okay
to ignore His commands while embracing the desires of flesh.
The flesh is a test that reveals the character of the soul.

If our wrath is greater than our love we are in serious jeopardy
of eternal damnation. He who has an ear let that one hear
what the spirit has to say to the souls that would know.


For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against
all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, ... ~ Romans 1:18


Truth is truth and that can not be changed. Lies have no enduring power.

But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart
you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and
revelation of the righteous judgment of God, ...": ~ Romans 2:5-6


For those that deny or choose to ignore His ways
will engage in the most horrific and terrible of all realizations,
upon His appearing. It is our deeds that the Lord watches very closely.
How genuine is a soul who turns from considering the will of the Almighty?
Wrath can often be associated with a broken heart. No one else can
pick a soul up off the carpet, that muster must come from within
as in a commitment to stand for something greater.


... to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey
unrighteousness--indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, ...
~ Romans 2:7-9


An inheritance of blessing and or condemnation is coming for
each soul rising from the earthís incubator in the womb of His creation.


... And He said to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of
prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.'" ~ Matthew 21:12-13


"... Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" ~ John 2:15-16

God has shown His wrath is for those that take, especially
advantage taken of His truth to pursue rewards of self interest.
Oppression is a construction of man not condoned by God.
The self-seeking will not find God.


... You are indeed angry, for we have sinned-In these ways we continue;
And we need to be saved. ~ Isaiah 64:5


"And these will go away into everlasting punishment,
but the righteous into eternal life." ~ Matthew 25:46


Salvation is to be desired. What will be will be.
To remember His ways possesses great value beyond measure.
Jesus was ignored, abandoned, humiliated, hurt, abused, betrayed,
deceived, and rejected. Although we too experience all of these things,
He instructs us to seek His salvation in a spirit of joy. Rejoicing in the
ways of the Lord frees one from the guilt of evil deeds gone past.


... I will soon pour out My fury, And spend My anger upon you; I will judge
you according to your ways, And I will repay you for all your abominations.
~ Ezekiel 7:8


... having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through Him. ~ Romans 5:9


For all the suffering inflicted by the cold hearted,
their fate is worse than if they had never known.
Humbled under Jesus, His sacrifice is our salvation.


By the blast of God they perish, And by the breath
of His anger they are consumed. ~ Job 4:9


... who may stand in Your presence When once You are angry?
... To deliver all the oppressed of the earth. Selah ~ Psalms 76:7-9


Godís righteous anger will repel the heartless from His healing presence.
If we are found to be oppressors, where then do we stand
with God who saves the oppressed?


... do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written,
"Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. ~ Romans 12:17-19


While we live waiting for His revealing, He calls us to stay under His care.
He desires that we put off anger as it will be His final judgment
that will take precedence over all that is wicked. Anger
needs to be seen for what it is, an illness of spirit.
Spiritual wealth is found in peace.


Godís anger will bare all
God is angry with the wicked every day
God is jealous and will avenge those wicked
Blessed are all those who serve and trust in Him
Evil provokes the LORD to anger
Worshipping things made by God infuriates Him
The LORD became angry with Solomon as he turned away
The LORD considers all in His wisdom of judgment
Let no one deceive you with empty words suppressing truth
Hard hearts will not find His mercy
Worshipping God is not of the tangible but in spirit and truth
Judgment will come according to our ways
In a moment God will extinguish evil
"Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord

Godís Anger will reveal the truth of all lies.
Darkness holds the shame of nothing.

11/20/2016 ~ Thankfulness


  thankfulness1pm.mp3 (44m 34s)


Darkness has a colorless extent.
How many of us dismiss happiness to be had for the drudgery of
mundane miseries? Life is a choice to wallow with no one near or rejoice
for those close, no matter circumstance or affiliations. It bottom lines on to
feel love or contempt, and this choice defines the quality of living life.


It is good to give thanks to the LORD, ... ~ Psalms 92:1

We are not helpless animals without hope.
His presence allows rest from carrying the burdens alone.


I rejoice at Your word As one who finds great treasure. ~ Psalms 119:162

Mental delicacies abound in the revealing of countless pearls
contained in the light of His unending divine truths. These have been
given to us that we may know how better able to survive what we all have
in common, loss. Loss is a test in exposing true character. Again, it is
a choice to climb or fall, and many choose the latter slide over
the rigorous demands where integrity stands.


Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
~ Ephesians 5:17-19


God Calls Out to Us
→ do not be unwise
→ understand the will of the Lord
→ do not be drunk
→ be filled with the Spirit
→ speaking in your heart to the Lord

There is no greater glory than the Lord.
If one believes, the heart is called out to confess that spirit of dedication
and loyalty, all to the Almighty. And who would deny God other than
those on the road of condemnation? In the courtroom of life,
three things are sure, taxes, death, and meeting our Maker.


... giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our
Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another ... ~ Ephesians 5:20-21


It is truth that more is better and being thankful together has the
advantages of unity. In such a state of disunion, how much better is
joy over the dread? To be found finds one lifting back to God,
the source of all enlightenment.


At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You,
Because of Your righteous judgments. ~ Psalms 119:62


When one wakes up at night with that churning washing machine growl,
is He part of your return to sleep? Relying on His strength should be
thankfully welcomed as a driving protective force, which it is.
Thanks is the light of the heart that pierces all darkness.


... with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard
your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. ... ~ Philippians 4:6-7


For one to take full advantage of what belief in Him provides,
trust is the essential component. It is one fully trusts that those healing
strengthening benefits come into play. If God is for us, what can man do?
This is the comfort zone of eternal rewards.


"... do not worry about your life, ... Is not life more than food
and the body more than clothing?" ~ Matthew 6:25


Hard to apply is the command not to worry, and if one doubts, this has
a more active hindrance to oneís genuine faith. Do you thank God amiss
for the things you covet for, or more to the point, thank Him for just
being there with a supportive will of principles and justice?
The nature of who we are alive is unveiling before Him.


Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may
exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, ... ~ 1st Peter 5:6-7


Many of us have loss resulting in pain which can turn to anger
masked by arrogance. Without a humble heart, honesty can be blurred in
misconceptions of oneís own making. Only an open releasing submissive
heart can allow God and others to sincerely care for the soul that one is.
In such an isolated world of self-seeking narcissistic embryos, dropping
hostile perceived protective facades is difficult for the disturbed.
Attack is routine where love has no breeding ground.


But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
... and be thankful. ~ Colossians 3:14-15


Glory is thankful love in His name.

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through Him. ~ Colossians 3:17


To develop the true nature God intended for His autonomous life,
His principles need to be acquired. One is thankfulness in the fact
of just living. This can be difficult as man assaults man in the
corruption of all that is evil. Murderous outrage befalls all nations.


Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; ...
~ Colossians 4:2


Our relationship with God Himself is what holds our anchor
to eternity, ultimately free of the temporary wickedness
that man perpetrates upon himself.


... let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is,
the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. ~ Hebrews13:15-16


As we are called to an eternal connection, one should never forget or
ignore that calling. In this case ďPray unceasinglyĒ has all to do with
acknowledging His ever-persistent presence. One does not throw
a parent away, at least an honorable unselfish child would not.
It is by Him that we are anything that we are; let it be thankful.


For the LORD is great and greatly to be praised; ... ~ 1st Chronicles 16:25-26

Since the Lord has created everything He is due the respect
and honor that is afforded Him. His plan encompasses more than
is comprehendible, but we are assured it is within reasons to gain
loyalty over rebellion. Our birth into Him is no mistake as it is
an eternal living condition mutually sought after.


Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for
this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. ~ 1st Thessalonians 5:16-18


With all that is before us and more, any thankfulness
is short of what and where it needs to be.


But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
~ 1st Corinthians 15:57


God has given us such an opportunity to regain eternal standing with Him.
Jesus comforts us confirming the promises set in ages past.


Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, ...
~ 2nd Corinthians 2:14


God senses the very essence of our being and wills that we know Him.
God came to the earth living in Christ to reach our hearts.


For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being
saved and among those who are perishing. ~ 2nd Corinthians 2:15-16


For the noble inclined in His will rejoicing will be the refreshment. Those
enmeshed in their own will, ignoring the call, fade upon a shadows wisp.
Living or dying, our character will rise to meet God our Lord Jesus Christ.


Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! ~ 2nd Corinthians 9:15

Godís own sacrifice is what has released us into that which is more
than unique; but a reflection of the qualities and attributes of God
Himself in life given freely to be that it is. Our choice to thankfully
recognize this or not defines who we are and how we believe.
Faith is a quest for that which in better in all of us.


God calls for Thankfulness
It is good to give thanks to the LORD and in praise
Understand what the will of the Lord is
Gives thanks always for all things in Christ
Give thanks for His righteous judgments
In calm prayer give thanks which guards the heart
Do not worry about your life
Humble yourself casting all your cares upon Him
Whatever you do give thanks to God through Christ
Be vigilant in prayer with thanksgiving
Give thanks to the name of God
The LORD is great and greatly to be praised
In everything give thanks for this is the will of God
Our thanks is victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

Thankfulness is the greatest call to the Lord.
Darkness has nothing to steal.

12/25/2016 ~ I AM


  iam1am.mp3 (32m 40s)                 iam2pm.mp3 (33m 22s)
  

Darkness has no where to lead to.
I am is identity of spirit.

"... for I am sorry that I have made them." ~ Genesis 6:7

So despicable were people that they only desired evil seeking only selfish
pursuits. I am is a sense of identity and goodness is part of this, or not, as
a matter of character. Godís reflection of His identity was all but a memory
lost. Love for others is the beginning of the miracle of living and what He
bestows upon His creation. Without such, mutual love, bonding with His
creation had no unity, leaving God hurt for witnessing such unloving
creatures. This trend of mean intents has been the plague of all
generations. Regret is one of the emotions God gives us
in hopes we turn back to righteousness.


And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." ... ~ Exodus 3:14

The light of His love has healing shine for all that would hear.

" 'Now see that I, even I, am He, And there is no God besides Me;' ..."
~ Deuteronomy 32:39


His power exceeds anything one could perceive; unsurpassable.
In a realm of diminishing substance, He rises past all in a greater way
yet to be revealed. The material is a test of how each oneís character
will respond. Deliverance is only had by His hand.


Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! ~ Psalms 46:10


The extent of His calm places reflection upon our hearts to see
deeper than just the surface. In a universe of limitations He shows
us helplessness without Him. In our fallen sate we cannot even
walk on water. Our lives fragilely transport in a hostile environment.
His warning call to return, to that which is above, is ever clear in
all the natural wonders we witness. This universe was made
so that the divine nature would be more than apparent to
those who would see it for what it is, His nursery.


I, even I, am the LORD, And besides Me there is no savior. ~ Isaiah 43:11

The depth of His love digs searching for our return through His sacrifice.

"I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake;
And I will not remember your sins." ~ Isaiah 43:25


He holds the spike of our sins.
Redemption comes to those giving Him the highest in all gratitude.


... "I am the LORD, and there is no other." ~ Isaiah 45:18

Across the whole universe He is there. Will we be able to cross
the divide of division to where love holds life in peace?


"Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other." ~ Isaiah 45:22


God wants us to rise in His light.

"... I will deliver My flock from their mouths, that they
may no longer be food for them." ~ Ezekiel 34:10


Remember how the Lord was sorry He had made man, with all the evil
that ensued? He continued even afterward (Noah) to have frustrations
with man as he fell back into evil (disobedience). And so we are today.
For those that would oppress others, God has reserved punishment.
Darkness will lose itsí power over the humble of heart, no matter
how dark that heart has come to be. God has the power to reach
down to the bottom and is where He calls out the loudest.


"... I am their inheritance. You shall give them no possession in Israel,
for I am their possession." ~ Ezekiel 44:28


Jesus Christ is our inheritance and possession into eternal life. In truth, it
is the freedom of heart, and soul, He gives to rise past earthís on goings.
The inheritance God has given to us all is knowledge of Himself and an
offering to return eternally. Earth is a halfway house searching to see our
character of spirit be it noble or not. God wants to know if our values can
rise above that of the mere material. This is a problem for us all in the
physical. Many never come to even ask this most profound question
especially if greed and lust is all that is known. Our desires declare
our worship and direction in life. Together or apart defines a heart.


... "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." ~ Matthew 3:17

God in the balance has no argument against Himself.
He came to us to give of Himself.


... "But who do you say that I am?"
Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ." ... ~ Mark 8:29-30


All sand lays in the bosom of His creation. By His power
all is at rest in time upon the wholeness of His substance.
The secrets of His authority are past knowing.


"... But I know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent Me." ~ John 7:28-29

Jesus came to the temple in Jerusalem to expose the true temple of God.
That would be where the light of life would dwell, and His will was to wake
mankind up to the fact that he himself (man) was created in the image of
God, and to realize this would be to realize true life from within. We are
the temples Jesus teaches in. Let your light shine has merit.


"... if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." ~ John 8:22-24

God has physically in the flesh extended Himself for us to know enough
to make the choice of accepting Him, or believing something else which
ends in mutual rejection. God does not change and if man changes Him
(God) to fit sin, it will never be so. Religions of man cannot excuse the
truth of God. In fact, many associations have the guise of religion but
are actually infused with agendas of man for man, and manís
interests, over divine pursuits in Holy worship.


... "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." ~ John 8:58

Jesus is on the shore of all that is.
Not a blink has gone by that He does not know.


"I and My Father are one." ... ~ John 10:30-32

Jealousy has the power to turn against oneís own best friend;
a sad statement of living in the flesh. Competing too often rides
the prepared knife before commendations of praise pour forth.
Jesus was despised for the good light that was in and of Him.


"... because You, being a Man, make Yourself God." ~ John 10:33

They could not kill Him for the good works, because they were all
too fantastic, miraculous things which had no evil in them. But from
their own inadequacies buried in anger, He had something they did not,
He was acquiring the love and respect of the people. So symbolic that
they wanted to kill God, so they as individuals could claim that honor for
themselves, to be exalted as gods issuing judgment. It is a brave man that
declares to be judge, jury, and executioner, in the face of God Himself.


"... because I said, 'I am the Son of God'? If I do not do the works
of My Father, do not believe Me;" ~ John 10:36-37


They were seething so hard to kill Jesus for His works, and all for
that they were not capable on the same scale as He was. Truth,
power, compassion, understanding over all, Jesus was here
for all, even those that plotted against Him.


"... believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him." ... ~ John 10:38-39

One of the great things Jesus did by coming to earth was to show
how God Himself could be in you, in the goodness that He is, filling
oneís heart just for the sake that He is, the Great and Almighty I AM.
Love of God has remained with many across the eons of time.
It can be found if sought after.


"... Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else
believe Me for the sake of the works themselves." ~ John 14:10-11


Jesus showed something wonderful and separate from
any and all afflictions suffered by man. It was Godís example
for man in how His creatures should care for one another,
and not through judgmental and contemptuous hearts.


"... you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. ..."
~ John 14:19-21


He is the light that guides us home, to that eternal sanctuary,
where His love is supremely welcomed endlessly with no moment
to spare. It is that Jesus is in the Father, and He is in us,
and we in Him, that is the light of truth from within.


I AM is Here
I am sorry that I have made them
I AM WHO I AM
Be still, and know that I am God
I am the LORD, And besides Me there is no savior
I am He who blots out your sins for My own sake
I am their inheritance & I am their possession
My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased
I know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent Me
I am from above; I am not of this world
If you do not believe I am He, you will die in your sins
Before Abraham was, I AM."
Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me
I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you

He is so we are in Him, the Great I AM.
Darkness has no expression of grace.

In the ocean of time, I am is the greatest that all could be.
Identity is God and His gift unto all life upon His creation.


... "Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?" Jesus said, "I am. ..."
~ Mark 14:61-62


Jesus could say nothing to convince the hateful religious elite to
love where they could not. A symptom of pride is a hardened heart.


... "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered,
"You say rightly that I am a king. ..." ~ John 18:37


Pilate had the illusion of power and found himself dumbfounded
at the meek straightforwardness that Christ possessed.


... "Why, what evil has He done?" But they cried out all the more,
"Crucify Him!" ~ Mark 15:13-14


Relinquishing his own good judgment, Pilate chose to be a crowd
pleaser instead. Cowardice is common to man no matter how high one is.
Little did anyone know Christ was the sacrifice for all men including Pilate.
Ingenious was Godís plan to reach out past His physical form on earth
to appeal exactly as He would have it to all those that would find His
salvation in truth. God presented Himself as the most honorable lowly
loving man alive in a world consumed by hate. His life, death, and
resurrection is our example on numerous surrounding levels explaining
present eternal life in Him. The innocent often stand afar off in shock
while evil plays out itsí gruesome deeds. Without fear of God,
respect for one another is out of reach.


... "Who are You, Lord?" Then the Lord said, "I am Jesus,
whom you are persecuting. ..." ~ Acts 9:5


Above all, we learn from scripture that Jesus was and is
the personification of light in love itself holding justice as reserved.
In His resurrection He continued to suffer for the truth to be known
over the evil practices of the selfish mired in ignorance.


... "I am the resurrection and the life. ..." ~ John 11:25

All God wants is for His creation in life to remain alive. God expects
love for love and respectful acknowledgement, which He is more than
magnanimously due. Disregarding God is the face that confronts our
current physical circumstance. As noticed in the fading night sky is
a sign given, rebellion has the material consequences of evaporating
in to the voids of nothing. Remembrance (awakening) has the
rising sign of life during the visible day in His light.


"... 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'?
God is not the God of the dead, but of the living." ~ Matthew 22:31-32


Life is universally eternal, no need to search for it as it is already here.

... "I am the bread of life. ..." ~ John 6:35

God is the substance of all of our lives. He is the one that continually
refreshes life. In His call to us He offers the body of His life openly.


... "I am the light of the world. ..." ~ John 8:12

Jesus brought to us a light brighter than the sun; creation of life itself.
Without following Jesus and His ways, many become or remain
plagued with depression, anger, jealousies and or envies
of this or that. Truly the light He gives is life itself.


"As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world." ~ John 9:5

Jesus is the road map back to God and all other doctrines lack
credibility, no matter how loud they scream foul. God will not coexist
with evils created by men demanding tolerance as He Himself has
shown His wrath will come upon the disobedient. No excuse will excuse
one from the coming judgment in the light of His truth. Christianity is
God reaching down for man and all else is man reaching for man.


"For where two or three are gathered together in My name,
I am there in the midst of them." ~ Matthew 18:20


He is the psychic web of truth that binds spirits together.

"... for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. ..."
~ Matthew 11:28-30


Feathers of love float in His kingdom where light propels them upon the
winds of truth. Past the weight of all the universe is where God resides.


"... I am the door of the sheep. ..." ~ John 10:7-9

Who in their right senses would not want to enter through the door
to eternity? It can only be achieved by submitting to the will of God
in truth and spirit. He has proclaimed it.


"... I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep."
~ John 10:10-11


To be ready is to know He is coming and to act upon this knowledge.

"You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am." ~ John 13:13

Jesus is not the demon many have declared. He should not be
despised as He came to instruct us how to reach out with genuine
hearts, justified in His sight, offering salvation from sin. His teachings
can be the hardest to apply where goodness is paramount.


"... I am among you as the One who serves." ~ Luke 22:27

God is the servant of all.

"... that where I am, there you may be also." ~ John 14:3

Out of the womb of the earth will come His glory rising into a wondrous
eternal kingdom where material substance will not have dominion. How
many have a hard time just being. To be or not to be is an age old
question poised in so many different ways. To love, to live, to be.


"I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. ..."
~ Revelation 1:18


Jesus lived and died for each of us.
His resurrection is the assurance of His promise.


"... all the churches shall know that I am He who searches
the minds and hearts. ..." ~ Revelation 2:23


Will our hearts meet our minds in accord with His wishes
for us to know Him in us? He is next to us knowing our all.
Is what our mind hears buried in our hearts devoted to Him?


"... I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me,
to give every one according to his work." ~ Revelation 22:12


Not much time is given for souls to decide as eternities gates come forth.
Darkness sheds itsí light without regarding His brilliance to the realm of
isolation. Change from that darkness to the light is the very definition
of repentance that God now demands of His returning children.


"... I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."
~ Revelation 22:16


It is all transparent that no shadow may be hidden from the light
He has bestowed upon all His creation. A great witnessing is
occurring across the realm of life exposing truth over lies.


"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser." ~ John 15:1

The juice of life all comes from one source and is what we all will return to.

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me." ~ John 14:6


There is only one Lord and to His house we should all hope to enter.
Do we believe, the clichť of all faith. In Him our compass is clear.
Give me north straight that I might see no other. If our compass does
not point through Jesus, this pointless direction has no destination.


I AM comes to all
Are You the Christ, the Son of God? Jesus said, "I am"
Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king"
I am the resurrection and the life
I am the light of the world - I am the bread of life
I am there in the midst of them gathered in Me
I am gentle and lowly in heart - I am the door
I am the good shepherd - among you as One who serves
I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life"
I am He who lives, & was dead, & I am alive eternally
I am He who searches the minds and hearts
I am the Offspring of David & Bright and Morning Star
I am coming quickly to give each according to his work

Living among us He lives forevermore.
Darkness has nothing to watch.
