If Yeshua hadn’t died, He could not lead us through the Valley of the Shadow of Death
Because He did, that Valley only holds deaths shadow
If He hadn’t died, He could not show us how to die, or how to live.
If Yeshua hadn’t risen, we could not be raised.
If He hadn’t died in the flesh, we could not be raised in the Spirit
If He hadn’t endured persecution, we could not endure by His Strength alone
If He hadn’t went back to His Father, we couldn’t go Home
If He hadn’t went Home and sent His Counselor, we would not be able to follow
We follow a Savior who died and rose again because if He had not we could not follow Him from death to life.
Be sure the Thing or One you believe in has conquered death, otherwise it or they can’t get you out.
If Yeshua hadn’t gone before us, He could not know the Way to lead us!
Grace and Peace in Yeshua the Messiah 🙂
Nothing in all creation is so like God as stillness. ~ Meister Eckhart
(It is not nothingness – its everything – at rest. ~ LV)
He who seeks God in some external routine will find the routine and lose God. ~ Meister Eckhart
In silence man can most readily preserve his integrity. ~ Meister Eckhart
Praise God! I have been shown, as far as can be, what God is and where God is…I swim in the Godhead, like an eagle in the air. ~ Elisabeth Staeglin of Thoss
Nothing can be known naturally in itself, unless it is known intuitively. But God cannot be known by us intuitively from our natural powers. ~ William of Occam
If I am not in God’s grace, may God bring me there; if I am in it, may he keep me there. ~ Joan of Arc
God passes through the thicket of the world, and wherever his glance falls he turns all things to beauty. – John of the Cross
Settle yourself in solitude and you will come upon Him in yourself. ~ Teresa of Avila
To be in a state of true grace is to be miserable no more; it is to be happy for ever. A soul in this state is a soul near and dear to God. It is a soul housed in God. ~ Thomas Brooks
A man who cannot find tranquillity within himself will search for it in vain elsewhere. ~ Francois Duc de La Rochefoucauld
(For the work of Yeshua on the cross was the final tearing of the veil…and the ushering in of His presence that can only save from within…”I Am here, His Voice now speaks, fear not what I have made!” ~ LV)
To give ourselves to an entire hour, day, or minute in complete rest…is to move mountains with the trust, that all that is – is in trustworthy Hands. ~ LV
Tears Shall Cease
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 21:4)
Yes, we shall come to this if we are believers. Sorrow shalt cease, and tears shall be wiped away. This is the world of weeping, but it passes away. There shall be a new heaven and a new earth, so says the first verse of this chapter; and therefore there will be nothing to weep over concerning the Fall and its consequent miseries. Read the second verse and note how it speaks of the bride and her marriage. The Lamb’s wedding is a time for boundless pleasure, and tears would be out of place. The third verse says that God Himself will dwell among men; and surely at His right hand there are pleasures forevermore, and tears can no longer flow.
What will our state be when there will be no more sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain? This will be more glorious than we can as yet imagine. O eyes that are red with weeping, cease your scalding flow, for in a little while ye shall know no more tears! None can wipe tears away like the God of love, but He is coming to do it. “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” Come, Lord, and tarry not; for now both men and women must weep!
