Missing the Lord like crazy now even though I’ve been fulfilling most of my day with worship, podcasts, and His Word through messages. There’s so many things He has done for me that I didn’t understand before, but through His grace saved me (Eph. 2:8) and unlocked the Spirit inside me and pulled me out this world by abiding in Him.
His love is everlasting and abundant that makes me tear up inside while typing down. It’s 04:25 right now and just seeing the brokenness of this world and relying on Him is the only thing that’s good that’s in this world that’s not a part of it. I pray that every person in this world would see the wonderful things He can do by changing a person by living in Him.
Remember, I’m just man don’t follow me, nor follow any man with flaws. Follow the instruction that was bestowed on us by yahawah. Our imperfection outweighs our perfection. Filthy rags is what we are for now, until the second coming of our messiah that will turn us into a clean cloth. The filth no longer being there, becoming purified from lies. Sin is a virus that can be cured from your inner spirit, which can reflect from your physical outside, what’s most importantly to change is your inwards thoughts. The door of grace is closing, once is closed you won’t receive the gift inside. We were bough with a price, that debt needs to be paid. You and I will pay that debt willing or forcibly.
““ ‘ “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” ’”
Numbers 6:24-26 NIV
Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.
1 Peter 4:8: “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.“
John 15:12: “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”
1 Corinthians 13:13: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.“
Ephesians 4:32: “Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
The Rocks Cry Out!
Everyone is clear on why the Temple Curtain was torn in two from top to bottom, I get that, but does anyone know why the same verse says, ‘the rocks were split in two’, as well? (Matthew 27:51)
Almost everything Jesus did was prophetic - everything! The Apostle John knew this and it is why he says in the Book of John that, 'if everything the Lord did was written down in scrolls, I suppose the entire world’s libraries could not contain all He did!’ (John 21:25)
When they killed Jesus, they thought they had silenced Him forever, but beforehand they’d condemned everyone - the people around them as well as His disciples - for fulfilling a three-fold prophecy by singing His praises and recognizing Him as the King of Israel.
(3-fold: Leviticus 23:40 - John 12:13 - Revelation 7:9)
Jesus compounded that prophecy by fulfilling others (Zechariah 9:9) and by then uttering yet still a further prophecy:
“But some of the teachers in the crowd said to Him, 'Teacher, rebuke Your disciples!’” .. 'I tell you the truth,’ He answered, 'if they remain silent, the very STONES will cry out!“ (Luke 19:39; Matthew 3:9)
That prophecy was fulfilled when the rocks themselves DID indeed cry out - bearing witness to the wrath of God being expressed - as the curtain of division between Himself and mankind was torn down forever! People don’t think about that small detail in Scripture .. about the rocks!
And not only that - the STONES of the tombs of the righteous split asunder and were opened when those righteous ones were raised from the dead and went - en masse - to present themselves in Jerusalem, as the Law required, to the High Priests - the very same priests who thought they had won!
All this is recorded in Matthew 27:52!
Talk about being overwhelmed by a tidal-wave of prophecy! - *Wow!*
And there was absolutely nothing .. they could do!
Every morning I read one chapter of the Bible .. I make my coffee, nuke a couple of eggs in the microwave, get some bread ready to go with it and then sit on my bed, open with prayer, thanking God for both the spiritual and material food - eat and then read .. beside me on the bed, I always clear a space as if God were to sit beside me .. not that He really does, no - of course not - but in the same manner during Passover that an empty chair is left and a place set for Elijah during the mealtime, I know that God is with me and when I read, He is talking to me in the most truly intimate and personal way.
As I read through the chapter, alone in my room, I read it aloud and ‘discuss’ any points that might come to mind as I’m going through it, as if I were teaching somebody else, and this helps the inspirations and things I learn and come to realize get 'locked’ into my memory .. I learn so much through this practice; I have no role models, except Jesus, since every human fails me however well-meant and however deep the friendship is that I might have with them, and I would fail them too if held under examination, I know that and it does not diminish the friendship or the love I have for them.
But this is not about them, this is about personal time between God and you .. this is your intimate time with Him as He shapes and teaches you, and perhaps even enables you to know how to formulate your answers to others, although that is not the immediate goal.
This is your Father, sitting beside you, sitting with you, living inside of you by His Holy Spirit, and a good habit once-formed will leave you feeling incomplete without it as you begin each day, and why should that be?
Because your Lord Jesus, Who knows what is good for you, commanded it to be that way!
Deuteronomy 11:18-20: 'Therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul .. and teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you get up in the mornings!’
God bless you!
The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.
