The Black Sabbath

(I originally titled this post: Do not take this message lightly…I was directed to re-title it with the Words He gave me.)

I sat down to spend time with The Father and read scripture several hours ago.

As I did so, this happened:

 

Friday April 14 – 8:01pm

“Black Sabbath – Write it down – Black Sabbath”

What does this mean? What are you trying to say LORD?

“The Black Sabbath is about more than remembering my Son’s: Once for ALL sacrifice-

What will it take to turn the hearts of people to me? What do the people need to hear to recognize that no mortal human man (or men) can save you?

I CREATED Man.

I know the hearts of each soul that existed (From Adam to Donald)

I know your thoughts. I know how many of you doubt my promises. Many believe I have tarried. Many believe you have a reprieve.

Have I not told you of my plans? Have you read them? They have been waiting for you to discover between Genesis and Revelation. Yet most pay me lip service regarding these books and the words they contain.

I do not want to see anyone perish but as your just and True God I do not turn a blind eye from sin.

My Love for EACH of you is Eternal. I only want to be able to share the wonders of Heaven and my presence WITH you. That is not possible if you chose to ignore me.

Don’t run from your sin. Don’t hide it – don’t ignore it.  Give it to ME. Surrender. Turn away from your sin and repent.

MY SON DID NOT DIE IN VAIN. HE DIED TO CREATE THE NEW COVENANT.

Chose today – Chose Now whom you will serve.  It is only the narrow – road, the narrow path Jesus (Yeshua) followed that leads to Paradise.

My Redemption draweth Nigh.

 

I ask that you take this message to The Father and Spirit in prayer.

The following scriptures accompany the above message.

(Heb 9:12)

(Hab 2:1-3)

(Rom 1:18-20)

(Ps 136)

(Rom 6:12)

(Rom 6:13)

(Heb 9:15)

(Joshua 24:14-15)

Updated: A Warning Message to His Children – the church

“Do you hear ME?

Do you know I AM beside You?

I AM here. I have always been here, though you may not recognize ME.

Please turn to ME, now. Please call out to Me.

Seek ME and Find Me – The Door is STILL open.

————————————————————————————————————–

Do NOT go to church as a “routine”;

BE THE CHURCH as intended in Acts 2!”

Please see UPDATED message near the end…

 

I was reading “Richard’s Watch” blog this morning. After I finished, I was prompted – quite spontaneously to share The Father’s Words above with anyone with ears to hear. I am sharing the link to his blog because this post was prompted by reading Richard’s. I do not understand the significance and if there is any, I ask that you take it in prayer to the Holy Spirit.

As a blogger, I am just a vessel. But as His vessel, He has given me the Word “Lament” to share. I don’t like using that word – but this morning I started tearing up prior to writing this…

In looking up the meaning of the word Lament I referenced Merriam-Webster online:

Definition of lament

  1. intransitive verb
  2. :  to mourn aloud :  wail nightingales lament without ceasing — L. P. Smith

  3. transitive verb
  4. 1 :  to express sorrow, mourning, or regret for often demonstratively :  mourn … must regret the imprudence, lament the result … — Jane Austen

  5. 2 :  to regret strongly He lamented his decision not to go to college

 

Twice this week I heard the following words in my Spirit – “Get Ready.” The most recent these words were conveyed was yesterday.  I only know when something is mentioned more than once, we are to take note. I don’t know what this means, but yesterday my Heart, Mind and Spirit felt an overwhelming heaviness…like a sadness – but this feeling wasn’t for myself; it was for the world.

Whatever is ahead, know that God LOVES US – He LOVES His Creation. He LOVES You – with a Love that surpasses ALL understanding (Ephesians 3:19, Phil 4:7)

I pray God’s Peace, Wisdom and Protection (Psalm 91) over you and those you know and love, today.

This UPDATE is not easy for me to share:

I normally try to include a video link with each post I share. When I posted this morning – whatever song I thought I had heard in The Spirit, I could not recall either the lyrics or melody. In the last few minutes I heard the word, Foreigner – as it related to music. The song I was taken to is “Cold as Ice.” No pun intended, but the song lyrics are chilling to listen to if you consider God’s warning and admonition from Revelation 3:

Video Lyrics: Cold As Ice

1Revelation 3:16 (KJB)

“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”

Blessings,

Kenzel

A Snapshot: “Kenzel Mind”

Someone asked me not long ago…”How do you think?”

How do I think? It felt like that was asking me how I write or eat or wash my face. At first…at first I almost thought it was silly. Until I realized how serious a question it was – and remains

I have struggled with needing to write some blog posts. I’ve received some Words of Knowledge I’m believing I’m supposed to share but that is not something I have ever done on this blog. (Sorry for random spontaneity…)

Tonight, reading Day 117 of Book of Mysteries – the scriptures the lesson referenced was from the book of Matthew 6:33. Which says in essence that He will give you all you need each day – day to day, if you live for Him.

To say that the last month has been difficult would be an understatement. I have had to take enormous amounts of time and reflect on life; 33 plus years worth of time. No joke. (and not coincidentally I just noted the scripture reference of Matthew 6:33 and reflecting on 33 years of life….Hmm: Confirmation.)

It turns out it this journey in the wilderness the past month was a Self-Evaluation of sort provided as a means for God to show me that He is not just Sovereign and Holy and Righteous – but Wise and Loving.  He possesses an all-consuming Love that swallows up anything that doesn’t reflect HIM. In essence, He was showing me His “God Strategy” for life.

The “God Strategy” is really simple. Not easily followed…nor replicated but simple to identify, at least in theory.  God gave us Jesus and we were to follow His example as we journey through life. It sounds easy- right? It’s anything but.

 

Snippet of Soul Surfer (Shark Attack) – Graphic Re-enactment

 

The God Strategy runs counter-intuitive to EVERYthing we are as human beings. Whether saved or un-saved, we have a tendency to want to lean on our prideful, arrogant, self-centered hearts and minds.

Jesus was none of those. He came to show us what we COULD be:

Selfless-Humble-Empathetic and loving others with Agape

In the past 33 years, I buried both parents and witnessed funerals of countless relatives and friends… the young, the old.

I have witnessed how bitterness can swallow up everything that is good in man as well as how un-forgiveness can lead to utter destruction.

I have witnessed the effects of what alcoholism can do to a person – not just one person, but two…as well as the life long effects of everyone to whom those persons came in contact.

Through everything, the good, the bad – the heartache…the tears. I have almost gotten to the point of being “cried out” where I have almost no tears left to cry. And that’s when Jesus told me…that was not by accident.

Through the decades, you’ve cried and cried and then cried some more.

Mankind looks at tears as something to flee from. As though tears will weaken the human psyche. But truth may seem stranger than fiction.

Keeping physically fit is paramount in the minds of many…but like anything good, some motivations (without balance) can become an idol. When men and women exercise, the body sweats. The overall benefit to the body is an increase in strength within the body muscles: “Strength training” it’s often called. The same holds true for building your “spiritual muscles” and “empathy empowerment” when you cry. So, where physical fitness is admired and sought after, showing our emotions is looked at as anything but…

What most have never bothered to ponder are the strength in crying tears. Tears aren’t just an outlet for emotions. Tears are a powerhouse method for the building up of the person within.

This might sound counter-intuitive but think about it. Every time you’ve cried, it seems to cause a release in the body. In truth, tears are The Father’s formula to build strength.

Consider Maundy Thursday…when Jesus went to Gethsemane. He went with his disciples to pray. While Jesus was there He found himself in the fight of His “carnal” life. That night was a “Macro” snapshot of His life. He had come on a selfless mission – as a tiny baby destined to eventually be the ultimate sacrifice of Agape Love. That Thursday night in the Garden He fought his flesh. His sweat fell to the ground like they were great drops of blood (Luke 22:44) and He asked His Father for strength.

Jesus knows our plight. He knows our hurts and what makes us tick, happy, frustrated…even content.

I’ve spent the last month contemplating “The how do I think” question…and the answer is that I don’t know because I’ve always HAD to turn to God for direction. He wrote the book of my life and I’m just “walking it out.” That’s how I look at each day, it’s how I’ve had to look at each day since 1983.

Yes, I have a calendar with appointments on it but God is really the controller. I recognized this a while back. I go where He leads…I wouldn’t want to navigate these waters on my own or by myself. That wasn’t His intention anyway.

The truth is, the “how do I think” question is an everyday, hour by hour struggle of Ephesians 6:10-18. From an early age, I faced unusual circumstances that left me confused, shaken and orphaned. Before I was even a Senior in High School I was asking more questions about the “obscure” things of Life and Heaven than anyone on earth had answers for. There finally came a point I stopped asking people around me anything – because no one could relate.

Everything about who I am – how I think and feel was shaped by The Father’s plans for my life;  to quote Bethany Hamilton from Soul Surfer (1:31 seconds)

(To paraphrase and emphasize her point: “I wouldn’t want to go back and change what happened to me because, it happened for a reason, it provided a way for God to work and show His Glory….”)

Before I close for the night, here’s one more memory to share. I remember attending an Irish Wake with my Dad when I was 16. It was weird talking to the guy for whom the Wake was being presented but before he moved on to talk with another guest he said: “It’s been a pleasure talking with you…you have an amazing attitude and perspective. You’re gonna do great things.”  Well, whatever I’m gonna do in this life is really on God’s To-do list — and I’m just watching it unfold.

The very first link I included in this post was the Bethany Hamilton re-enactment. I have been led to watch several sections of this movie since March. The Father needed to remind me that though we can’t always see HOW He is working – we have to know that He is working ALL things together – to give us Hope and Purpose: (Soul Surfer RAD Night ) (1min in length)

Now, it’s time to share the finale of the movie (or at least a snippet) –   Soul Surfer – Final Wave (2:18)

(I should add that while the final wave scene is really cool in itself, the close up scene of Bethany’s face while surfing “the barrel” is pertinent as it relates to an earlier scene right after the shark attack during her emergency trip to the ER.)

 

May all of God’s Blessings be yours and May you be a Blessing unto others….

Where I’ve Been – 5 Months of Grace

When I started blogging, four or five years ago…I had no idea the journey ahead of me.

There have been times when I needed to pause from blogging. Some of these “pauses” I might have, at one time, attributed to “Writer’s Block;” but I’m beginning to realize that most of the time these “pauses” have been at the discretion – and direction – of The Father.

This past Winter, was one such time.

I think we can all agree the Presidential Election this past fall brought about some very unexpected results. It was just after the election though, that something occurred, which caused me to take this most unexpected pause.

I received feedback from a reader. The feedback was innocent. There was nothing said that was mean or disrespectful. But in that tiny, unsuspecting response…I spent days, weeks (okay, yes, months) contemplating IF I should even continue blogging. I questioned many things…among them my ability to write, to discern and to accurately convey messages from the Holy Spirit.

Today was the day I was directed to go back and review the post that started this “5 months of Grace.” He wanted me to go back and see where I had stumbled because He wanted me to recognize that stumbling isn’t failure. It’s a pivotal time in our walk of Spiritual Growth. These moments are necessary for us to progress.

Personally, I needed to go back and review what it was that made me feel like I’d needed to retreat. And it turns out that this was another step in His learning curve.

In the days since I returned and wrote my first entry last month, I kept wondering why there had been such a “dry” season of writing. I knew it was about discernment but I also knew He wanted to tell me more. The LORD responded:

“From the beginning (2009), you were prompted to blog because you have something to say. Because, your words matter – because you seek ME. Everyone who SEEKS ME will FIND ME.

Last year, you had begun to look elsewhere for words to share from other’s. It’s fine to share insights, but don’t supplant your voice. Until such time as I direct, your words, your writing, are your voice. A Fresh voice – a voice that isn’t echoing what the World keeps repeating. The People don’t need to feast on WORLDLY wisdom: The people NEED the Light of the World.”

Talk about feeling humbled.

Who AM I that God would use me to reach – even ONE person – who needs HIM?

(Please don’t miss this beautiful song from Casting Crowns – Who Am I? )

So, yes…It turns out I needed to step away from here for a season. Usually, that’s a bad thing in the WORLD of blogging. But – this blog really isn’t mine. From the start it’s always been HIS.

 

You – HAVE – Kingdom Authority

I had written a blog post recently about how dark it feels like the world is becoming.

Although it may feel like there is a darkness surrounding us, I was gently reminded last night that I need to share an even MORE important TRUTH.

As I read from the Book of Mysteries: The Shadow Man (Day 104)…the Father allowed me to review select events of years past in a matter of moments.

The Shadow Man – our enemy (Satan) seeks to seek and destroy. But the take-away we MUST grasp is The enemy has NO power over us – unless we give it to him. Recall that the battle over the shadows and darkness starts in the mind (Eph 6:10-18)

The reality is – The Cross was a monumental moment in history. When Jesus died, the enemy thought he had gotten the upper hand.

Keyword: thought

The point is, don’t judge a book (or situation) by its cover. What we see doesn’t always tell the whole story.

As we live and breath, each day on this journey…we all have to go through different challenges. It’s the challenges that make us who we are. It’s the “Who we are becoming” that God focuses on.

The Whole Story we really need to learn is that of Jesus. Jesus death was a surprise twist in a fantastic and epic journey. By GIVING Jesus the POWER to resurrect on that Sunday…God enabled us to receive this same power. All we have to do is Ask for it.

How is that possible? Because God, promised us He would send us help.

Because, when Jesus ascended He sent us the Holy Spirit (The Comforter). 

Because of the Holy Spirit, because of the Power associated with knowing the Word of God: if we use His Words we have the Kingdom of Heaven, on our side. 

Whether or not you know it or are willing to believe it, the enemy will FLEE when anyone uses and expresses the Word of God as their defense.

And that brings me back to the title of this entry: Your Kingdom Authority.

You Kingdom Authority. By speaking aloud the Word of God (just like Jesus did during His Time on Earth) you – YES, YOU…-  have a defense against the Shadows and the darkness.

The real question is – will you use these to your advantage? Will you apply them to your life, to break the chains? Will you give yourself the chance, to let Jesus set you free?

Today’s Scripture:

John 1:1-13

 

7eventh Time Down – God Is On The Move

(when I published this post earlier, I thought I had selected the correct song. In the last hour, I received a correction. The following link is the song I should have attached from the beginning; but here it is, now.)

Casting Crowns: Courageous

So, will YOU u-s-e your Kingdom Authority?

Are you STILL searching?

Please watch this lyric video…before reading the rest of message

Rise – Danny Gokey

 

The only part of the video I don’t agree with is where it says “we are small, we are insignificant.”

As a human being goes, in the picture of creation…our bodies may be small as compared to the size of the earth, planets or galaxies. But that doesn’t mean we are insignificant. In fact, scripture says quite the opposite. The Word of God says we are Called by Name by our Creator (Isaiah 43:1). I’d say that makes us anything BUT insignificant!

I started this entry with this specific video because the photos from space and the galaxies were so incredibly amazing – And so useful for what our Heavenly Father wants YOU to know.

The World is facing interesting times. There is MUCH uncertainty. It feels as if we are on shifting sand as far as both Politics and the Economy are concerned.  Men and women wonder what will happen from one moment to the next and how it will affect them?

These are all valid concerns. But maybe, there is something else we should be focusing on…something that has been forgotten. Your destiny.

 

Did you know that when you were born, you arrived with a destiny to fulfill? I’m not talking about the idea of “What do you want to be when you grew up.” I’m talking about the person God intended you to be even before the day of your birth.

Through the course of our lives, we tend to try to “figure out” where we would BEST fit in – what our skills and aptitudes are. What we’re good at. We try to do this all on our own. Sometimes even taking personality tests (in High School/College) to help “guide us.” Our parents and families will often do their best to help navigate this process as well.

Even with the best of intentions though…how well does that really work out? How many of us actually find our TRUE calling? Before you say, “Oh yeah, I’m there…doing what I’m meant to do. I like my job a lot…” that’s not what this is about.

I’m talking about whether you might actually KNOW what your God given destiny in this life really IS. As in, have your ever taken time to ask God – that question…?

 

“God, What would you have me do?

What is MY Destiny?”

A lot of you are going to likely think this sounds silly. But how many reading this, have even on the BEST of days – actually thought…”What is there? Could be MORE?”

The MORE is all about what God had intended for you to accomplish while you were alive and living – in the HereNowToday.

The point IS if You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) and since God already knows the number of hairs on your head (Luke 12:7) What would it mean – FOR YOU – to find out what God already has planned for you? He knows us better than we know ourselves (Jeremiah 29:11-13).

If you are searching for more, then maybe you are searching because He is calling out to you…and saying there is:

More Than You Think waiting for you!

 

Remember to ask! Ask, SEEK, FIND!

Matthew 7: 9-13

9And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? 12Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

 

He “Saved The Best For Last”

sunset

 

For many months there has been one particular secular song (from 1992) that kept rolling through my memory.

In the past months, I have likely watched and listened to it more than I did when it debuted…and I wondered what I was supposed to do with it, what it meant and why I kept hearing it. Today, I understood.

That song is Vanessa Williams’ “Save The Best For Last.”

When I first started listening to it again, I questioned why on earth its pronounced lyrics would begin to repeat in memory.

She sings of a love she longs for but isn’t reciprocated. She sings of an unrequited desire….things that are carnal and of the flesh. 

Or so I thought…

The Journey I find myself continuing on now is full of daily – sometimes hourly lessons. Although this “expedition” seemed to begin with what I would call the Dark Night of the Soul (click here: John Paul Jackson teaching) – (please note you might watch this later because the teaching is a video that lasts 90 minutes) it has morphed into something I had not anticipated.

Today, while reading Book of Mysteries – I find myself paused at Day 71 – Titled “The Omega Joy” and subtitled “The Last Joy.” The Omega Joy goes into a mini-lesson about the Feast of Tabernacles (which occurs each Autumn between September and October).

While the world at large celebrates the joys of the year to come at the beginning of each New Year (January 1st)…The Feast of Tabernacles occurs near the end. According to the Book of Mysteries, the days of Sukkot – or Feast of Tabernacles – is considered the GREATEST CELEBRATION.

And it was when I read the following, that The Holy Spirit really got my attention.

“In other words, the ways of God all lead in the end to joy. Even that which seems hard for the moment, the way of sacrifice, self-control and righteousness. In the long run, it all leads to joy. God’s calendar ends with the Feast of Tabernacles, and those who walk in His ways end up altogether joyful. For the ways of God all lead to joy. AND THE BEST IS SAVED FOR LAST.”

Please do watch the following video….

“Save The Best For Last”

So how does the song she sings finally relate to this message?

Song Lyrics

Sometimes the snow comes down in June
Sometimes the sun goes round the moon

(Consider the power of what God can do:  Joshua 10:12-15)

I see the passion in your eyes
Sometimes it’s all a big surprise

(God’s Love for Mankind gave us Jesus Passion at The Cross: Matthew 27:45-56)

‘Cause there was a time when all I did was wish
You’d tell me this was love
It’s not the way I hoped or how I planned
But somehow it’s enough

(You did tell me this was Love…John 3:16-17)

And now we’re standing face-to-face
Isn’t this world a crazy place?
Just when I thought our chance had passed
You go and save the best for last

(We WILL be standing FACE to FACE in front of God at some point in the future. Revelation 20:11-15)

All of the nights you came to me
When some silly girl had set you free
You wondered how you’d make it through
I wondered what was wrong with you

(Psalm 23, Psalm 16:1)

‘Cause how could you give your love to someone else
And share your dreams with me
Sometimes the very thing you’re looking for
Is the one thing you can’t see

(James 1:5-8 ….also there are many things you can’t see that are still there…Do you see the wind blowing? John 3:8)

Isn’t this world a crazy place?
Just when I thought our chance had passed
You go and save the best for last

(What IS God doing for us by Saving the Best for Last? God is promising that Jesus will never leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). That He is standing by our side – ALL the way – To The End. (Matthew 28:20)

la da da da – da da.-

Sometimes the very thing you’re looking for
Is the one thing you can’t see

Sometimes the snow comes down in June
Sometimes the sun goes round the moon
Just when I thought our chance had passed
You go and save the best for last

You went and saved the best for last
Yeah…

 

Yes, He did – He did Indeed Save the Best, for Last.

May your Weekend be Blessed…

The Wilderness by Tent: “Travel Light”

Please click on this link for Mercy Me’s song:

“Word of God Speak”

 

Yesterday, I wrote a letter to The Father, inquiring about why I would be in the Wilderness?

To back track a bit, last year, I bought a book titled: Book of Mysteries, by Jonathan Cahn. I started reading it a couple of times but had stalled on actually finishing it. I re-started the study several weeks ago and found myself on a very unexpected journey (just how God seems to work, right?)

It turns out the journey He placed me on is a road similar to some I have been on before. The road is called “The Wilderness” and while these experiences are generally  difficult to navigate…most people don’t realize that this time in the Wilderness is an important place to be.

I realized earlier in the year that while life is always full of challenges – God said in His Word that WE would have to go through the Wilderness and for good reason. God sent His Son (Jesus) through the Wilderness as well. The reasons are simple; they cause us to grow. And God’s intent is not for us to remain stagnant but to gain in strength, wisdom and understanding.

Jeremiah 29:11 says that “I know the plans I have for you” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

During my prayer time with the LORD today, I understood Him to say…”notice you haven’t blogged in a while. You felt as if you had nothing to write about. You were uncertain what to write about. Difficult as the Wilderness has been, I needed to shift you around. To refocus you…if I am your provider how can I give you provision without space to do so? Yes, you have been listening, but MY Voice has been crowded out by others.”

Why do so many people tend to think that the trials we face indicate we have done something wrong? That if we are going through challenges in this life that it is because we have taken a “mis-step”?

I’m coming to the realization that this is because we – humans – have come to believe a lie. And that lie is that life is meant to be sweet and people have hope that “Once upon a time” will ultimately become a “Happily Ever After.”  That’s great and all if you are living by the World’s standards…

The question I ask you to ponder is… Where did those two thoughts (Once upon a time – Happy Ever After) get their start from? How did those concepts find their way into culture (and into our belief system?)

I hadn’t intended to write today… But yesterday, in the afternoon, I read a segment from Book of Mysteries that made me realize I needed to. I’m at another point in this Life journey that is propelling me forward.

In Books of Mysteries, Day 50 is titled “The Tent World” – it is sub-titled “The Feast of Camping” and the concluding thought from the lesson ends with the sentence: “And travel lightly.”

While I was pondering that lesson, I came to understand something that I’m supposed to share here.

First, for those with understanding, let me affirm there is a sort of “shifting” going on. Whether this is just a Spiritual shifting and how/when it might manifest in the physical, I have no idea.

At the root of mankind, each of us carries a spark of HOPE within us.  However, this root isn’t something we can claim by anything we have done. It is when we are iin The Wilderness that the human spirit has the ability to make a decision that will transform the pathway; for better or worse.  RECOGNIZING who we are because of who WE were made to be by The Creator God (Yahveh).

Given that We are ALL travelers through this life. Consider what the phrase “travel light” may imply from a spiritual point of view? We come into this world as newborns…wearing nothing. We carry no possessions and brought nothing with us.

On the flip side, how do we leave this world? The moment our bodies die – we leave with nothing but our Spirits/Souls. The only thing left behind is a body that has “aged” and wandered through the Wilderness – and that body, eventually gets buried. Although I was going to use a common phrase here: “Ashes to Ashes and dust to dust” I stopped short when I found out that phrase may not actually be biblical, although its usage is based on the following (Gen 3:19 All your life you will sweat to produce food, until your dying day. Then you will return to the ground from which you came. For you were made from dust, and to the dust you will return.”)

Getting back on track:

So, the body dies and, effectively disintegrates. Not the most pleasant thought…but it would be worse if we didn’t have the assurance that though the body isn’t designed to last forever that the soul and spirit are eternal. And that brings me right back to the point of the Wilderness and Tent World – why we NEED to travel light.

Lesson for today: When we’re IN the Wilderness, everything we know is going to be challenged. We may know the truth, but others may not fully understand it. Jesus knew the truth but He knew the Sanhedrin would judge Him and judge Him they did.

Our bodies don’t want to experience the Wilderness, but the Wilderness is a reminder of the world we live in. Yes, this world can be a beautiful place, but it does present troubles and Jesus told us it would, in His Word (see John 16:33).

When Jesus spoke in Chapter 16, He told the disciples they would be scattered. He knew it, He saw it coming and tried to comfort them. He knew it wouldn’t be easy. While we walk this earth, life won’t be easy…but maybe that’s the point.

Please click for video: Grace Wins

Closing thought:

Travel Light just means, as you wander through the Wilderness make sure other’s can SEE the Light of God’s LOVE radiating through you…and don’t carry more than you can take with you as you journey through it.

 

May you be blessed with Peace.

Here is the Aaronic Blessing from the KJV of The Book of Numbers

Numbers 6:22-27

King James Version (KJV)

22 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:

25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

Season’s – A Time for Everything

Although I have been reluctant to post a blog for quite a while. I need to refocus. I know myself well enough to recognize that writing is the pathway for God to help me accomplish goals like this.

This whole “journey” – years ago started off with a blog and with the twists and turns of the past weeks this almost feels like something I need to do. This particular post is for me – a letter from me to The Father, in Heaven.

Father God,

I love you but as part of your carnal human creation, it’s obvious, I don’t always understand your ways. It has been decades since I was in a place such as this.

Last week I was a in a daze. I should have been more focused on the quilt but trying to focus on anything other than day to day, was just out of reach.

Earlier this week you had me go back and listen to some of The Wilderness Series messages. It was with that first video that I wondered if you were speaking right to me.

If I am in the Wilderness, if that’s what this is? Then why? I have guesses and theories but above and beyond that I have submitted to you that you are The Potter and I am the Clay. What do I need to understand? Help me to work with you so we can progress forward.

I have been in the thick of the Wilderness before…during the years after Mom and Dad died. If I am in The Wilderness, Father  – Yahveh Ahavah, please help guide me out of this as quickly as possible. You already know my thoughts – And you know this is NOT a place I want to be.  I am searching for you…in your Word, via Book of Mysteries, in prayer and praise. Thank you for giving me Isaiah 61 and Isaiah 51.

In the meantime, While I’m waiting, I will work on the quilt and other tasks at hand.

I’ll continue listening… and I know you will answer.

Scripture I was given to include:

Ecclesiates 3:1-8

Ecclesiates 3:11
