Do You See?

Do you struggle over the completion of God–Father, Son and Holy Spirit?

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one.” I John 5:7 KJV

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.” I John 1:1-2 KJV

Many do.

It seems difficult for them to comprehend the triune Godhead of three complete as One.

Your thinking is ‘natural’ and incomplete. I repeat–incomplete.

For We are like the sun you cannot explain–how such a great fire can remain.

or

The stars in the heavens that delight your eye; how they dwell for so long, so high in the sky.

Do you doubt that they are real?

No, for you see them there. But they are ‘fore’ your natural eye. Faith it takes to believe We three are One. Faith it takes to please the Father and Son. Could you then believe that, in order for you to ‘see’, I gave a part of Myself to you as My Son; a man that is tangible to touch and to see?

Do you think I did that for Me?

I did it that you might be one. When you believe in He, you believe in Me and you are won, that We may be One–you and I, as I and My Son.

“I am God, and also henceforth I am He; there is none who can deliver from my hand; I work and who can hinder it?” Isaiah 43:13

Do you see?

“If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God that he has borne witness to his Son. He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. He who does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne to his Son.

And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life.” I John 5:9-12

“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, to 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.”  I John 5:20

Look again–with eyes from within; there you will ‘see’ Me…

ask Me in.

“For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order; Christ the first fruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.” I Corinthians 15:20-23

“Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.” I Corinthians 15:49

“For the grace of God has appeared for the salvation of all men, training us to renounce irreligion and worldly passion, and to live sober, upright, and godly lives in this world, awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all iniquity and to purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds.” Titus 2:11-14

“The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and everything.

And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, for ‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your poets have said, “For we are indeed his offspring.’

Being then God’s offspring, we ought not to think that the Deity is like gold, or silver, or stone, a representation by the art and imagination of man. The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead.” Acts 17:24-31

“And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been give to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.'” Matthew 28:18-20

 

My Perfect Timing

I have much for you to do

The world is a big place and yet it is all within My grasp, therefore it is within your grasp as well. I AM not limited, but I limit My children for timing. If I were to send you out, unprepared, you would fall and be perplexed. You would wonder if you had missed your direction.

  • I give you purpose.
  • I help you plan.
  • We prepare together.
  • We go.

For I always go with you–you are never alone!

Exercise your faith by first understanding My will

Next, be willing. Many know My will, but are not willing to yield to it. They suppress direction in their heart until it no longer calls to them and then declare that they are not being led.

Be honest

Be true to your heart, for I AM leading, but you must be willing to go or willing to wait.

My timing is perfect

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” St. Matthew 28:19-20 KJV

“And he called to him the multitude with his disciples, and said to them, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? For what can a man give in return for his life? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man also be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38

“Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; he who teaches, in his teaching; he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who contributes, in liberality; he who gives aid, with zeal; he who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.” Romans 12:6-8

“Take care, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we share in Christ, if only we hold our first confidence firm to the end, while it is said, ‘Today, when you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.'” Hebrews 3:12-15

“For he has made known to us in all wisdom and insight the mystery of his will, according to his purpose which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fulness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. In him, according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will, we who first hoped in Christ have been destined and appointed to live for the praise of his glory.” Ephesians 1:9-12

“Whoever does the will of God is my brother, and sister, and mother.” Mark 3:35

 

 

Count It All Love

I speak to you of Eternal Life often, because it is the most important goal in life to obtain. Without it everything in life you may strive for is meaningless–futile. For what does it profit a man to obtain the whole world, but lose his soul? I speak of it to you often, even though you may have already obtained it, because I want you to grasp the enormity of even one soul that is lost. It is so easy to receive Eternal Salvation and then just move on and forget that there are others. Others who depend on a kind word or direction to show them the way.

Have you ever been on vacation or visiting a strange city and found yourself to be lost? How relieved and grateful you were when a kind stranger showed you the way. They took the time to care for you.

Take that time for another. You may not be the one to lead them into salvation, but you may lead them to it by connection along the way. I use many to accomplish a task. I use many to lead a child home.

Give Drink.

Give substance–sustenance.

Give your time.

I count it all as righteousness–I count it all love!

“For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” Luke 8:25-26

“Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered; and being made perfect he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him.” Hebrews 5:8-9

“And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life.” I John 5:11-12

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30

“When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee? And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:31-40

“He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor; others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.” John 4:36-38

 

Faith that Shines

Just because you can’t see the sun shining where you are, does that mean its not shining somewhere else in the World? It is the same with faith, you may not see it yet, for “faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” You may still be hoping the sun will shine yet you may not see it; the evidence is there, but it just hasn’t come into your spectrum yet.

Believe to receive

Turn your faith into belief, and allow the substance to transform before you–into your realm, to receive. Anxiously looking doesn’t bring it to reality and neither does doubt, but trust without wavering.

Examine your heart daily, to see if there be anything in you that would hinder your ability to receive.

Anger, fear, anxiety, heartache, sadness and shame are precursors to doubt and disable your connection to the Father. True trust casts all other emotions and feelings aside, and stands in readiness to receive the Son and shine!

 

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Heb. 11:1 KJV

“But if we hope for what we do not see, we hope for it with patience. Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words. And he who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Rom. 8:25-27

“–Have faith in God. Truly I say to you whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you receive it, and you will.” Mk. 11:22-24

“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord.” Ja. 1:6-8

“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.'” Mk. 10:27

“And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” Dan. 12:3

“Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.” Matt. 13:43
