Truth and Consequences

I wonder…at the simplicity and complexity of the truth at times.
To ponder it too long it would seem, can send it further out into a boundless place, mankind was never intended to fully grasp, yet could never escape. The tree of knowledge of good and evil. Yet at its most simplistic level, God, Himself, was always enough. That prefect balance that we need, always have, always will. Knowing a truth, for knowledge sake, this is the abominable forsaking of it. How many of us, (only the truly insane of human kind being the exception), how many of us don’t know a basic truth: lying is wrong. The only time we excuse it is when we’ve lost the ability to apply it to ourselves. To lie, for example, to “protect someone” from the truth; this is the ultimate oxymoron. Why in heavens name would there be an ounce of sanity involved in the mind of man to think it’s protection to keep the truth from someone; especially someone we love? Everyone knows lying is wrong because we don’t like to be lied to. Yet somehow, we make exceptions for someone else when the truth then becomes a matter of the free will God gave for everyone to accept it, let it live in them, remake them. It’s not our job to protect or defend the truth. It NEVER will be. We do many many things out of this false sense of protecting people, especially those we love. Nature gives us every clue as to Who the job of protecting belongs to. Look at the earth, such a tiny layer of protection God has given it from the vast enemies from space to kill her. That layer is, if you will, His “skin”. Nothing can kill God. Or break His “skin”. In fact there’s is only one thing God has given to us that we can break, this is His heart. His heart is Truth. His Son. Which bled out on a stake, broken for us. I begin to understand, which is to say, like Paul, through a mirror dimly, what a delicate line the Truth draws between sanity and insanity. Why, to so many, the One True God just doesn’t make sense. They are, of course, trying to use that “knowledge” intellect alone to grasp it. I know many truths, but none of them have ever done me any good until they’ve broken me, became a matter of the heart and soul, not just my head. Truth made alive, begins and ends in brokenness. Our ability to grasp that it – in and of itself – can not be held in the head for profit, but must reflect the Heart of it, that which has broken from the beginning of time, because just having Him, wasn’t enough. Can we not relate? Who among us at our very core can honestly say, that this at its very core is relationship essential: To know that just us, all that we are, good and bad, is enough for someone who says they love us.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only and unique Son, so that everyone whoever trusts in Him (Him alone)may have eternal Life, instead of being utterly destroyed. – John 3:16

How often has this verse been repeated? Used? Notice how the very last part seems to always get chopped off in the quoting so famously of it? You see, the truth has blessings, but denied it bares consequences. I almost forgot, myself, that this last part was included in the famous verse. Everyone can quote it, followers or wayward, by now everyone can quote that very first part by heart. We avoid truth because of its consequential nature, not because we can’t see the benefits of it. Everyone agrees, to be lied to hurts, it’s benefits are are acknowledged on a selfish level. We don’t like to hurt. Selfishly at the same time we throw away the benefits of the truth, to lie to ourselves first and then others, in the efforts to “protect” – ourselves. Even when we say we’re trying to protect someone else, at the very core of it, we are trying to protect ourselves first. Ever notice the lack in the Bible of any concept of our duty to protect…anything? We were told to, be fruitful, care for, but not protect. Cherish, value, teach, exhort, admonish, forgive, love, be compassionate, encourage; conspicuously the word protect is missing. There is one word that could be mistaken for it; guard.

Above everything else, guard your heart; for it is the source of life’s consequences. Proverbs 4:23

But guarding in this sense is not the power given to direct and defend as if the sole responsibility is left in our hands. Guards can’t keep the heart beating as God can. They can only attempt to keep an outsider from entering in to try to kill, but the life beinging guarded is only directed by God. He counts the days of each child on earth. Many of them have been guarded, but ultimately not “protected”.

You who live in the Shelter of ‘Elyon (The Most High), who spend their nights in the shadow of Shaddai (The Alimghty), who say to Adonai (the Lord), “My refuge, My Fortress! My God, in whom I trust!” – He will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities; He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His truth is a shield and protection.
Psalms 91:1-4

See David, who “got it”, he knew protection only came from God. That truth broke him first. He fled for years of his life, had many guards, but only One Protector. I love the CJB version of this verse. Notice why we are to guard our heart? Because it’s the source of life’s consequences. We are told the heart is deceitful above all things! Where does Life come from? If God, Yeshua, lives in your heart, its protected – the Way, the Truth, the Life can dwell within. If they do not, well enough said. My heart can now, no more be deceitful with Messiah living in me, than the ground can cave in our heave without the breath of God to move it. I can now, being given eyes with the power of Truth, see where the lies shall come to enter in to my heart and attempt to rob the truth with illusion. I can bat them away, now. Before I could not. But the protection within, is still God, Himself. Please don’t misunderstand, we in no way protect God from lies, or ourselves. The Spirit (Truth) is the power given, we just choose it, and that ability to choose only comes from one being saved/rescued by Yeshua – the Truth. NOTE: verse 24 of Proverbs is about lies and deceit. Not coincidental.

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but rather so that through Him, the world might be saved (protected). Those who trust in Him are not judged; those who do not trust have been judged already, in that they have not trusted in the One who is God’s only and unique Son (protector). Now this is the judgement: the Light (truth) has come into the world, but people loved the darkness rather than the Light (truth). Why? Because their actions were wicked. For everyone who does evil things hates the Light (truth) and avoids it (protects themselves), so that his actions won’t be exposed. But everyone who does what is true comes to the Light ( truth – surrenders, makes themselves vulnerable) so that all may see that his actions are accomplished through God.
John 3:17-21

Self protection is an oxymoron too. But a choice to be sure, we can accept God’s or choose our own. The truth protects, anything other than truth in its purity, no dilution, no variation, attacks! The “consequence” of truth is vulnerability, exposure to great hurt, great pain, great rejection, great loss but also great peace, great joy, great love, great passion, great perspective and first and foremost a great life lived in the presence and relationship with a Great God.

Truth: we can not live within a deep and abiding relationship with God, and not know great pain. This pain is the constant open eyes to the consequences of our own and others rejection, avoidance and blindness to the Truth. Everyday, my closeness to Messiah, brings with it a brokenheartedness over His absence as the Way and Truth in lives all around me but especially mine. The lack of Life. Yet on the same string of brokenness, comes increasing joy, for His protection. That thin layer on the world? It protects everyone, those who love Him AND those who don’t. Grace and Mercy is God’s “molecular DNA to His skin”.

When we guard, we stand watch to only stay true to the truth that’s been given to us. We don’t protect it, or defend it. Truth, itself, does that for us. We have no power in this way, none. The watchful guardianship we are given is with eyes only on its application to us in all things, not others, not selfishly used for our gain, or as a measure of our worth.

The Word of God is protection and Truth, all by itself. It never returns void – ever. Even if we don’t choose it’s protection for ourselves, it will move beyond us into someone else. We just won’t know how. Blindness is the first symptom of truths rejection. One may ask: “how then, will I know if I’m blind?” God will be sure to send an agent to attempt to remove the scales, this is His job, and why He chose this particular application in Paul for us to learn from. Someone was sent by God, faithful as He is, to remove the scales from Paul’s eyes. They came with vulnerability, humility and truth. God is the great scale remover of all eyes. His promise never fails.

I wonder…how lately these thoughts roll down and up the halls of my mind, causing great flows of tears to fall down their walls. What purpose do they serve? I see the reflection of so many beloved faces in there, fallen, blind, beloved, prayed for with bloody knees, and (only because of the God who lives here in me), speaks the truth to each without regard to its rejection of me by them. What compels me to write this night is that brokenness, those tears, that heart that shares in Abbas suffering and hurt. Not some strange ability to know the truth, or indignation for it, or even a great grasp of it! It’s expanse is still so far beyond my ken. Unless the Truth keeps hold of me, I’m completely beyond its reach. God never gave mankind the ability to hold it in their hands, only to invite it into their hearts. Every time I’ve tried to lay hold of it in any other way, it has nearly severed every “appendage” I’ve attempted to hold it with. Remember the Scripture? It’s a double edged sword. Metaphorical – yes, but still accurate. Function is the key to understanding God’s Word and His speaking. Man is like dust, for example, what is the function of its application? Unless the Spirit (truth) guide you in the study insanity will ensue to try and grasp it. Leaving so many of the lessons making so much of dirt on the ground as we know it. The dust being referred to is that which is held in the hands of a living God at the very beginning, when He breathed His Life into it and formed the first of us. We always start at the beginning to get to the end. There are no short cuts.

The ultimate test of true bonds of love in any relationship is that the truth is always held at the center of it. Any variation, any slight shift or severe, will bring a sad illusion of strength of bond, but in truth, it will be bondage instead. Then God will send the scraping scouring agent to remove the scales, for relationships are His specialty. His invention, idea, and dedication. Not ours, and most certainly the design of His enemy and ours plainly seeks to destroy any resemblance of it or hope of it. Noone has a relationship with the devil. They are prisoners, there’s is no relationship possible with him. A relationship by God’s definition, is a total surrender to Truth, it’s direction and it’s product. He walks and talks and listens and teaches ands guides and comforts in relationship, yet there is still our ability to acknowledge we are willing slaves to Him who sets us free. What sets us free?

you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

Notice it doesn’t say, love, empathy, compassion, only truth. Which when one walks with God, we learn, all those other things only come as a result of a surrender to the Truth first. In 1st Corinthians 13, is a portrait of God, Himself. The chapter of all chapters on Love. Everywhere we see the word love in it we can replace it with – Yeshua, the Way, the Truth, the Life -.
There’s no Way to the Truth without Him, and thus no Life. There’s no Love apart from Him. No love, is no love. There are no degrees to it. We are never sort of in love, kind of loving, almost loving, we either are or we are not. We put degrees and levels on things like truth, love, grace, mercy and justice and most grievously forgiveness. God does not.

The truth in its very nature repels a rebellious heart. This is why it’s said to cut. In the Hands of a Loving God, it’s like pruning sheers. Removing the dead, lifeless, limbs, making room for the new, full of life, truth and promise to…(key word here)…grow. It’s a process, limbs get cut and it takes time to see the fruitful product of such a pruning. Many reject the truth due to the lack of ability to wait, feel the loss of the old dead unproductive thing that held life back. In time, we don’t count it as loss, as Paul spoke so well. Without the time, all we will feel is loss. Hence God doesn’t stop the suffering we often have instantly. Yet the truth to live at this point is, trust…wait and trust that God is growing something new within it. It takes time to remove scales.

Here is how we will know that we are from the truth and will set our hearts at rest in His presence: if our hearts know something against us, God is greater than our hearts and He knows everything. Dear friends, if our hearts know nothing against us, we have confidence in approaching God; then whatever we ask for, we receive from Him; because we are obeying His commands and doing the things that please Him. This is His command: that we are to trust in the person and power of His Son, Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) and to keep loving one another, just as He commanded us. Those who obey His commands remain united with Him and He with them. Here is how we know that He remains united with us: by the Spirit whom He gave us. – 1 John 3:19-24

1 Samuel 25: 23-31
When Avigayil (Abigail) saw David, she hurried to dismount from her donkey, and fell on her face in front of David and bowed down to the ground. Having fallen at his feet she said, “It’s all my fault, my lord, all my fault! Please let your servant speak in your ears, and listen to what your servant says. Please! My lord shouldn’t pay any attention to this worthless fellow Naval (Nabal), because he is just like his name – ‘Naval’ means ‘boor’, and his boorishness stays with him. But I, your servant, did not see my lords men, whom you sent. Therefore, my lord, as Adonai (the Lord God) lives, and as you live, inasmuch as Adonai has kept you from the guilt of shedding blood and from taking vengence into your own hands – therefore, may your enemies and anyone seeking your harm be as worthless as Naval. Meanwhile, let this present which your servant has brought to my lord be given to the men in my lord’s service. And please forgive the offense your servant has caused; because Adonai will certainly establish my lord’s dynasty, for my lord fights Adonai’s battles, and nothing bad has been found in you all your life long. Even if someone comes along searching for you and seeking your life, your life will be bound in the bundle of life with Adonai your God. But the lives of your enemies, He will fling away as if from the pouch of a slingshot. Then, when Adonai has done all the good to my lord that He has said about you and made you ruler over Israel, what happens here will not become an obstacle to you or cause for remorse to my lord, neither that you shed blood without cause nor that my lord took vengeance into his own hands. Finally, when Adonai has dealt with my lord, then remember your servant.”

Such beauty contained in these scriptures! May the women who are called by Adonai be like Abigail at heart, as the men called by Adonai be like David.

For the women:
This example is profound in Abigail’s reflection of being in this world but not of it. Notice how she “covers” the offense of Nabal by taking responsibility. Yet she does not live in denial to do this. She identifies Nabals weakness. Yet she does not have a condemning spirit. She acts in the spirit of “those who make peace” . More to the point on the Lord God’s honor. So many have broke this woman down in the light of her negligent and abusive husband. But see Abigail is no victim to either her circumstance or her husband’s behavior! Why? Because her wounds are constantly being tended by Adonai. Hence she has no resentment and feels no entrapment within her marriage. What she sees is only the service to her Lord. When God is our comfort and strength we are able to do all Yeshua instructs us within His words in Matthew 5 & 6. Turning the other cheek, serving with joy even those who hurt and wrong us, seeing a need and running immediately to meet it with the resources God provides. Her love and undeterred devotion to God is what shines here. Her relationship with Him is evident in her words and her actions. Humility, Patience, long-suffering, love that covers multitudes of wrongs. ..Trust unwavering in God who will act justly on behalf of her, David, Nabal, the servants, and Davids men. When God meets a need it is always met in spades. .. complete.
Abigail wasn’t running to David for rescue. .. she didn’t need to be. Adonai had already rescued her in the most complete way.

For the men:
See here David is in a moment where his prior weakness of quick temper. .. however justified. .. could either submit to the lead of Adonai through a woman or not. David recognized his God’s spirit and heart and therefore listened to the words from which the mouth poured forth. Gender wasn’t even considered. Not till after anyway… and then David was wise enough to ask for her hand in marriage. David too, could have played victim to Nabal’s abuse but instead let Adonai take care of Nabal how He saw fit.

There are times when circumstances are well within a righteous justice to act and run into battle. None of us can take our cues from what we see and know. God does battle here but not with human retaliation… but with humble appeal. Both David and Abigail were fought for by the very hand of God. But no blood was spilt. God provides for David and his men, provides for Abigail, and His glory is maintained in His plan for David to become what Adonai said he would… in His timing… His way. Noone was a victim to life and its abuses… all were taken care of by Adonai. The battle took place where even today, God performs His mightiest battles. .. within the hearts of His people. On this “ground” He always wins. The acts He performs outside that territory never compares. Though it proves His faithfulness to many watching with external eyes. God love’s the most to prove His faithfulness to us personally, right there inside our hearts and minds! Where He changes us from within andthat change effects all without.We grow more and more assured of Him by His work within us than a thousands years of work around us.

Integrity within; as God communes and teaches us His way outshines the Sun by pointing to His Son. This is The Way.

The Whole Truth

October 12, 2014 at 11:53 pm (Remodeling the Mind, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , )

image

The “truth”; when it comes to our speech or rather how it can pour forth from our mouths; is too often distorted by simplicity and complexity. Simplicity in that the black and white thinking of man gives the illusion that there is only one way to view something. Complexity in that man-kind has rationalized and theorized “truth” into an oblivion of facets that many give up on trying to attain it. The Truth in man’s hands is more a cousin to deceit than a child of love.
This is why I love the above scripture so much. It puts all speech into the Light of Truth. Keeping ones words from evil. Anything that does not do good, speak well, promote good, promote unity, cause grace. .. to flow from our hearts. This is evil. Another perspective is. .. anything that Yeshua or the Spirit wouldn’t say to the Father on behalf of another, these things should never darken the door of our own lips. 

Proverbs 10:12

Hate stirs up disputes, but love covers all kinds of transgressions.

Proverbs 17:9

He who conceals an offense promotes love, but he who harps on it can separate even close friends.

1 Peter 1:22

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth, so that you have a sincere love for your brothers, love each other deeply, with all your heart.

1 Peter 4:8

More than anything, keep loving each other actively; Because love covers many sins.

I must constantly remind myself that David, in the Psalms we read, is praying. .. having a conversation with God. Davids prayer here is concerned with what is between him and His God. What most do not know. ..because in this “closet” noone knows what he is thinking or praying or asking. At least when he wrote them. Now, of course, the whole world. .. generation upon generation has read Davids heart. But at the time he wrote this. .. it was an appeal to God and a conversation with God that was present and real to David. He wasn’t trying to “teach” or preach to anyone. David was a king. .. His speech was subjected to every kind of opportunity known to man. Privately and publicly he knew this area was the first place to seek God’s wisdom. Here is why. .. Yeshua (Jesus) Himself unmuddies the waters.

Matthew 12:36-37

Moreover, I tell you this: on the Day of Judgement people will have to give account for every careless word they have spoken; for by your own words you will be acquitted, and by your own words you will be condemned.

In other words. .. how I speak of others, what I share about others is very very important to God. If I speak well of others. ..I reflect the heart of God and therefore am able to be free of ill speaking. Likewise how I refrain from speaking of others wrongs. Freedom from it touching me when others speak ill of me and freedom from condemnation that comes from having spoken ill of others. Freedom in the world of loving. .. able to be taught from the Lord how to love. Then, Yeshua, being the Truth is greater in me than myself. Grace covers my wrongs and through Yeshua living in me it covers all the wrongs I will personally encounter done to me, around me, effecting me. ..in all ways.

I came across this great post on a blog and it gives one of the best examples of delineating the “whole truth” factor from the Truth wholely active as I have ever read.
image

He who has ears…Let him hear…
He who has lips…Let him speak or be silent. As The Truth would do for you before His Father. Notice in the story above the emphasis is on the relationship between a son and father? God has a special passion about this. The son that honors the father… no matter what. .. is to the glory of God. A word out of our mouth that keeps in mind our Father is their Father, is to the glory of the Son. Yeshua personified Love on the cross. .. covering all wrongs for all time with the Father. We are told He now stands before our Father with words of reminder of our acquittal. Along the road to that cross. .. He asked the Father to forgive (cover His eyes to the wrongs being done Him). Again on the cross He asks this. He’s still asking. .. we must assume all wrongs are being forgiven. .. and do justice by giving them very little “air-time” out of our mouths. We enter into the Kingdom Yeshua brought with Him when our tongues shun evil and in its place do good.

What is the difference between this complexity and simplicity and the first one I mentioned? God is at the center. .. not human reasoning. Human reasoning does what humans naturally feel inclined to do. The hallmark of God’s reasoning inside a human is the “going against the grain actions” of human nature. May He get the glory. .. in our speaking and our silence. May we know the Truth and be set free! So that we serve The Whole Truth and nothing but The Truth so help us God!

Where the Heart Is? ~ Part 4 ~

June 30, 2011 at 4:08 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Where the Heart Is?

Part 4

He was the youngest of eight children, a shepherd, an unaccountable warrior (in the worlds eyes) at first, a soldier, a musician, a poet, husband, father, and a King. There are two disciples mentioned in the Word of God that were given “names” as attributes to their character at heart that I’ve always longed for. One was John – the Disciple whom Yeshua (Jesus) loved. David – the one known as – A man after Gods own heart. David is the man listed at the beginning. He was famous for his shepherding skills, warrior skills, an affair – (but more to the point his repentant heart – after), his reign as King of Israel and how God blessed him, a continuation of a promise from God in the lineage of a Messiah, and Psalms. The word, heart, is found up to 122 times in this book, more than any other book in the Word. Listen to what Adonai (the Lord) said to Samuel when he was sent to look for a king for Israel. Samuel has arrived at David’s family’s house and has requested to see Jesse’s sons. Seven have been brought out and Eliab has made an impression on Samuel.

1 Samuel 16:6 – 7

When they had come, he looked at Eli’av (Eliab) and said, “This has to be Adonai’s (the Lord’s) anointed one, here before him.” But Adonai said to Sh’mu’el (Samuel), “Don’t pay attention to how he looks or how tall he is, because I have rejected him. Adonai doesn’t see the way humans see – humans look at the outward appearance, but Adonai looks at the heart.”

Adonai then picks David :-). From Gods own mouth He chose David for his heart. God also chose David for HIS (Gods) heart! Two hearts were the key to David’s choosing – God’s and David’s. The purpose?? Our hearts. Adonai knew we’d need David – a human born from the flesh of man alone (like us) with a heart for God. Then He sent Yeshua (Jesus) – a man born of His Spirit and flesh with a heart for God ALONE.

I urge you in your own time to look up every reference to the heart in Psalms – as I can not cover them all here. Keep in mind all the “things” the heart is – listed in Part 1. If you cover all the different ways to say heart – the references in Psalms to the heart far outnumber 122 times! David knew the key to hearing God’s Voice and where the strength came from to serve that Voice – the heart.

Psalm 16:7-11 (Emphasis mine and ties in all 4 parts of this series)

I bless Adonai, my counselor; at night my inmost being instructs me. I always set Adonai before me; with him at my right hand, I can never be moved; so my heart is glad, my glory rejoices, and my body too rests in safety; for you will not abandon me to Sh’ol, you will not let your faithful one see the Abyss. You make me know the path of life; in your presence is unbounded joy, in your right hand eternal delight.

Psalm 17:3

You probed my heart, you visited me at night, you assayed me without finding evil thoughts that should not pass my lips.

Psalm 19:12-14

Who can discern unintentional sins? Cleanse me from hidden faults. Also keep your servant from presumptuous sins, so that they won’t control me. Then I will be blameless and free of great offense. May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be acceptable in your presence, Adonai, my Rock and Redeemer.

Psalm 25:1

I lift my inner being to you, Adonai.

Psalm 26:2

Examine me, Adonai, test me, search my mind and my heart. (Notice the mind is not the heart)

Psalm 27:8

“My heart said of you, ‘Seek my face.'” Your face, Adonai, I will seek.

Psalm 28:7

Adonai is my strength and shield; in him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. Therefore my heart is fill with joy, and I will sing praises to him.

Psalm 49:3

My mouth is about to speak wisdom; my heart’s deepest thoughts will give understanding.

Psalm 62:1,5,7&8

My soul waits in silence for God alone; my salvation comes from him.

My soul, wait in silence for God alone, because my hope comes from him.

My safety and honor rest on God. My strong rock of refuge are in God. Trust in him, people, at all times; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.

Psalm 63:1,8

O God, you are my God; I will seek you eagerly. My heart thirst for you, my body longs for you in a land parched and exhausted, where no water can be found.

my heart clings to you; your right hand supports me.

Oh yes, David knew Yeshua well before He was “born” here on earth. David’s heart is written in the pages of Gods Word so that we could SEE – that if He could be heard before He was given a “human voice box” – He can be heard after He has come, died, risen and ascended back to where He was heard before by David, Samuel, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Jeremiah, Isaiah, and the list goes on and on. God makes every heart

Psalm 33:13-15

Adonai looks out from heaven; he sees every human being; from the place where he lives he watches everyone living on earth, he who fashioned the hearts of them all and understands all they do.

…He makes them for one purpose and one alone – to seek Him! To be loved, led, fed, and taught by Him and Him alone. That is the purpose for which we have been made (our function – good). He, alone, is where the heart is. We must invite Him there and seek Him.

 

You will build a house for the Lord your God in and of yourself. he will be the craftsman, your heart the site, your thoughts the materials. Do not take fright because of your own lack of skill; he who requires this of you is a skillful builder, and he chooses others to be builders too.  ~ Hugh of St. Victor (1096-1141) German-born monk and writer.
