The Awe for Adonai… in the Age of Deception ~ final post

June 6, 2020 at 6:08 pm (Remodeling the Mind, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Acts 1:7&8: He answered, “You don’t need to know the dates or the times; the Father has kept these under His own Authority. But you will receive power when the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) comes upon you; you will be My witnesses both in Yerushalayim and in Y’hudah and Shomron, indeed to the end of the earth!”

I’m not very happy at the thought of living a lie. Of the thought that daily actions required of me promote lies, enter into lies and mislead. In fact, lately, going out has done nothing but make me down right cranky. In the process I appealed to the Lord, “how can I keep from being robbed of joy by this enemy, Father, if the first thing I see is this deception and more disheartening the people You’ve created just passively going along with it.” Phrases like ‘the new normal’ enrage me… not enrage like a child not getting it’s way, but like Yeshua/Jesus when He upturned the selling tables in His Father’s House kind of enraged. In and of ourselves, we suffer nothing to just go along with what will feed peace. But, when that “peace” insults my Lord and Savior, who created the human body, created the world, and hates lies… are we not to stand in action against such ‘new normals’? Not protest or riot… sorry, this is not Yeshua’s way. Never was, is or will be. It’s our daily actions and living by which we witness to a kingdom we were born for, Yeshua came and died that we might become part of. It may seem to analytical to some but entertain this thought for a minute. Yet bear with it. A mask… what is it? What is its function/purpose? Does it apply in truth to this day? “What, Lord of Life, is Your perspective of this?”

מסכה – Mask – Masecah – disguise, idol

Ma•se•cha’ in modern Hebrew means only a mask or disguise. You can tell the sound similarity between the Hebrew and the English words. In biblical Hebrew, this word means an idol. Interestingly, most Bibles translate it as molten gods. More interesting is the fact that all of these idols are mostly no more than calfs. To be more precise, young male calfs. ‘Ma•se•cha,’ as a mask, was and is still being used very commonly in the spiritual rituals of many religions. You may find them around the globe, including in North and South America. The Latin word is almost identical to that of the Hebrew: ‘masca.’ The most ancient idol/mask was found in Hebron, Israel, and is assumed to be from 7000 BC. If you ever visit Israel Museum in Jerusalem, you can see it exhibited there.

‘Ma•se•cha’ probably comes from the Hebrew root: ‘m.s.ch’, which means ‘to hide’ or ‘a screen.’ The word appears only in the Old Testament. For example,

“They have turned aside quickly from the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed to it, and said, ‘These are your gods, O Israel, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt’”Exodus 32:8

The modern word used for either theater, movie, or computer screens is ‘ma•sach,’ which is also a derivative from ‘ma•se•cha.’

dis·guise

  (dĭs-gīz′)tr.v.dis·guiseddis·guis·ingdis·guis·es1.a. To modify the manner or appearance of (a person, for example) in order to prevent recognition: disguised himself as a guard and escaped.b. To make indistinct or difficult to perceive: disguised the bad taste of the medicine with lemon syrup.2. To conceal or obscure by dissemblance or false show; misrepresent: disguise one’s true intentions.n.1. Clothes or accessories worn to conceal one’s true identity.2.a. Appearance that misrepresents the true character of something: a blessing in disguise.b. A pretense or misrepresentation: His repeated references to his dangerous hobbies were only a disguise to cover up his insecurity.

I realize the next argument for definition will be that I didn’t include the medical definition of a mask. Need I? I am not simply because in this case, it is not truthful to apply today. There is no illness about that benefits one to wear a medical mask. I will not speak or print anything but truth. There may be a virus, they can call it whatever they want. The bubonic plaque it is not, nor eboli, nor a bacterial infectious disease by which a mask may at times be beneficial to wear for medical personale. The general public has been sold a lie about these mask and they have bought it for the most part, mostly because they fail to seek the truth of things in general out for themselves. Fatigue, laziness, or apathy leads most to just “trust the ‘experts’ “. Misapplication of anything can, therefore, be done. With or without evil motives (at least beknown to the individual). In this case, mask are being required of people in the name of a big lie, so what is being disguised? If so, what are we, as Light in darkness called to do from God’s perspective, not ours, not ‘theirs’ – but His alone. The answer?

LIVE THE TRUTH, with confidence in the Truth, who is Himself. Do it with gladness and joy and confidence in the Truth.

This was His answer to me. While I was cranky, grumbling about the lies and the gullibility of us humans, I was being robbed. My perspective was not on Him. It was on the world, it’s inconveniences, it’s perception. I wasn’t walking into the store (without a mask) with a smile of confidence in the Truth and the Lord, but in crankiness which was leading to bitterness and rebellion. I found myself belligerent looking into those cameras at the entry or people talking my picture (they are decieved), with a haughty attitude. I didn’t like it, I knew something was off. I went to the only One who can set my feet on the right path of His will. The interaction created humility in me and changed my heart. Not to enter into the lie by wearing a mask but to live the truth with joy and confidence in Him. He is my mask. My protection from ALL harm, physical, mental, or spiritual. It requires only that my heart is bent towards Him, and my actions reflect the actual truth according to His perspective.

He then brought to my mind the oddest picture. A knife. Interesting…I thought. The next image He gave was of its edge, sharp, it’s uses, cutting, the sense that He was affirming the need for the sharpness of its edge. The next impression was of the feeling I often get when I have been cut by a knife in the kitchen. A metallic taste I get in my mouth instantly, followed by the sensation of flesh being rent, violation almost. He then said, “the reverence or awe of this edge is diluted by human perspective. You get used to handling it, and forget to revere it. You get busy and slip, your deception of being in control causes injury. Revere Me, this is wisdom. I’ll admit I was a bit stunned. The verse about the Word being sharper than a two edged sword, popped into my head. His ways really never cease to be completely different than ours, His thoughts. The mind He gave me took it from there. Here’s two images that came to mind:

Do you see the difference? The inventions of man give us tools that allow us to revere less the edge of a knife. (I’m not saying we should all stop using rags, sponges, ie: tools to clean our knives) Then when we use them we are more inclined to mis-cut…slip. It’s subtle, this dulling of our senses, not nessessarily evil in an obvious way. Just inches us towards being decieved. Makes it possible, if you will. I sat back hard in my chair. His leading me got the job done, with a silly knife, images and His voice. I never would have made the connection. We don’t revere the power of God. We go out into the world and with each passing day, the world’s appearances seem to hold such power, more perceptible in our self centered world, yes. Yet, not in His. He is more powerful than everything we see that is not of Him. His edge is sharp, and accurate. His… is the most important edge I must remember. Nothing can harm me, or cause me to harm another without His precision of intervention. His execution of all things is KING! All those fear based fumblings from human mouths start to lose their power.

If you care about the elderly… you’ll wear a mask. If you care about people… if you want to be a good citizen… if you want to stay out of trouble… if you want to shop for food… if you want people to trust you…

No. Away all fear-based, man approval based, God isn’t in control based, I have to do it myself based, we are more powerful based, a disease is more powerful based, the government is more powerful based AWAY FROM ME!! I am Yeshua the Messiahs!! He bought me with HIS blood, He raised me from this death perception and brought me to the feet of our Father, who is and was and always will be completely trustworthy to follow. I will not listen or follow suite with any action that says otherwise, for me or for my fellow human beings. I will revere the knife edge, My Father, I will not forget His is Supreme authority and power. He has promised to sustain and uphold me, I’m no longer going to live in fear of this world and it’s dull dull edge of no power.

The blurred lines of little deceptions are increasing. Where will we stand and expose ourselves to His veil ripping power? The cost of doing so is increasing. It’s no longer just about not living in the obvious sin mentioned from front to back of the Bible. But a clear cut, if we don’t follow in those obvious things, fellowship with Him to get us through these subtle things will be impossible. He may tell you in one instant, use your mask to go shop and another to refuse to wear it. Will you know the difference? Wearing a mask does not say you agree… though many may see it black and white that way. The truth is HE can tell you to do anything and it’s the right thing, but don’t delude yourself. He is not asking you to wear a mask because the threat to life is real as the world purports. He uses all things to accomplish His will. Don’t buy into a human power based lie, that we can kill people with sickness and disease. That’s His territory! Life and death are His… not now nor ever will be ours or anyone else’s. Life is about human interaction, relationship, love, touching and laying on of hands. Yeshua touched leporous people, His example is key. We must live as if His kingdom is the most powerful, the ONLY power. It may be that He will tell us to defy a 6 ft rule of government, the masking…disguise endorsing lie. We must depend upon His voice each moment to know exactly how to live in action. When I go without a mask it’s in His authority, not rebellion to anyone else’s. When I put it on, it’s in the same spirit as above. Each reveres His power. Each is to live in Him.

To conclude, I would be remiss if I didn’t affirm the obvious. If we are engaged in vacillation or indecision and thus affirmative action in placing our bodies, mind, hearts into the sinless state that we are boldly without any room for misinterpretation for living, told not to do in the Word of God. The ability to be led into the subtle deceptions that will prevail from this point forward will over take us. WE can not live in sin and have communion with God to such the degree of intimacy that is required for these days. If we are fornicating, adulterous, lying to ourselves and/or others, cheating – in any way, hateful and unforgiving toward anyone, slanderous about anyone, jealous and envious of anyone or anything, careless in our speech, vulgar in our thinking, lazy, blaming and comparing to justify any of our actions…we are in sin. Go! Immediately! We must to be cleansed and forgiven by our Father and completely stop the actions we take into those sins (repentence). This is the power of God to save. Cover ourselves in the blood of Yeshua as the robe of righteousness, daily. Be fearless to speak of Him, fearless!! Don’t let the enemy blind you. Saying things like “I don’t know what to say to my children because of…I don’t have to say it’s Yeshua who saves, people already know what I believe…” don’t hold back, don’t give in, don’t be afraid we’ll lose our jobs, ability to shop, ability to do what this world calls living. Be more in awe and in fear of not really living according to His kingdom. Don’t be deterred by the control this world is eluding to. Don’t join in the chaos. Simply serve the Lord and stand out loud for Him, every minute, every day, everywhere at all times. Worship Him and Him alone!!

Finally, take total and complete responsibility for the information you act upon as truth. We do not live in ancient times where it was actually possible for people to truly not know about something going on in the world not immediately in their towns. You can seek the truth in all things yourself, we can not depend on someone else’s word, however, nice, and godly they may be. We are accountable to use the tools God gave us to know for ourselves. The truth about why a government would deceive people… this goes back 1000’s of years folks, not 100’s. You can’t act on the truth of you don’t know it. If nothing else, the time off, whether forced or not provides the time to do your own seeking. There will be no I didn’t know…” excuse on judgment day. What in your Bible doesn’t make sense to you… don’t stop until He, Himself clears it up. Study, and grow in the knowledge of Him – who He is… this is a absolutely 100 percent pay off in spades for your time! No better guarantee will ever exist. Our life exist in being fully alive in Him. There is no room for ourselves…our petty desires that go against His. We must die to ourselves now, to live fully in Him forever.

Scripture abounds for those who want to look up anything said here. Seek, and you will find. Don’t depend on anyone to do your spiritual work for you anymore. If you don’t hear Him, don’t stop until you do. Every single word and action Yeshua spoke and did affirmed the old testament of hearing God, consulting God, obeying what He said, Every work Yeshua spoke testified that we can and will hear His voice. (Look up: My sheep hear My Voice…) it’s all there for each individual to come to without any intervention from man. The Truth (Yeshua – Himself) will set us free!) We reflect Him… we don’t save anyone. He saves. Only Him.

Then He said to me, “Don’t seal up the words of the prophecy in this book (Revelation), because the time of their fulfillment is near.

Whoever keeps acting wickedly, let him go on acting wickedly; whoever is filthy, let him go on being made filthy.

Also, whoever is righteous, let him go on doing what is righteous; and whoever is holy, let him go on being made holy.

Pay attention!” Says Yeshua ” I am coming soon, and My rewards are with Me to give to each person according to what he has done. I am the א (Alef) and the ת (Tav), the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

How blessed are those who wash their robes (actions), so they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates (judgement) into the city! Outside are homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with drugs, those sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. “I, Yeshua, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning star. The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let anyone who hears say ‘Come!’ And let anyone who is thirsty come – let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge.”

I warn everyone hearing the words of the prophecy in this book (Revelation) that if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues written in this book. And if anyone takes anything away from the word in the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the Tree of Life and holy city, as described in this book.

“The One testifying to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua!

May the grace of the Lord Yeshua be with all! ~ Revelation 22:10-21

His Question

February 10, 2018 at 1:38 pm (Devotionals, Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Jeremiah 15:18

Why is my pain unending, my wound incurable, refusing to be healed? Will You be for me like a deceptive vadi, which is only sometimes filled with water? 

I’m willing to bet that this question has passed through the heart of every human being – ever. You see, Jeremiah is conversing with God. Now I’m not saying that this question has been asked directly to God by each human. Hence, why so often the question goes unanswered to many. Just a little common sense: you don’t ask a dentist why your toe nail won’t grow correctly. Or the post office delivery driver why your faucet is leaking. The human condition – any human condition can only be answered by the One who MADE humans. Yes?

In the verse above Jeremiah asks, will You be for me like a deceptive vadi? Do you know what a vadi is? It’s a ravine meaning a place of refreshing, calm and peaceful. In essence he’s asking is this peace I find in You real? He’s asking because there’s no difference between his world and the content of confusion and chaos in it than ours today. The assault on the mind from without makes one wonder if that peace that surpasses our understanding given by the Spirit is real sometimes. It’s hard reality to be purposed inside for a Kingdom and physically live in another. Hence, the latter half of the question: which is only sometimes filled with water? One minute the strength of God flows from with us like a steady reliable current, the next it feels like our ravine enter drought territory and a sand bar has hung us up. 

I think everyone has that thorn, like Paul, that we ask God to remove persistently. Why is my pain unending, my wound incurable, refusing to be healed? For some it’s the tendancy to sin in general, in whatever form it creeps in or out. For some it’s mental, fear, insecurity, anger, frustration, anxiety. For some it’s physical, illness, disease, chronic pain. 

It’s hard not to want to find that doctor or counselor or program or life style or diet or hobby or….to fix it, change it, alter it’s course at the very least, here on earth where we see, touch, smell, feel with our physical bodies. It’s hard to really believe the One who created us would counsel, instruct, and have all the answers we need. It’s even harder when His answer is like Pauls: My grace is sufficient, My power made perfect in your weakness. How does one accept that The Maker of our person would purpose us to have weakness, those that cause pain and confusion? 

What was His answer to Jeremiah?

This is ADONAI’S answer:

“If you return – if I bring you back – you will stand before Me. If you separate the precious from the base, you will be My spokesman. It will then be they who turn to you, not you who turn to them. Towards people I will make you a fortified wall of bronze – they will fight against you but not prevail against you; for I Am with you to save you and rescue you,” says ADONAI. “I will free you from the grasp of the wicked and redeem you from the clutches of the ruthless.”  (Jer. 15:19-21) 

Jeremiah’s thorn? To be God’s physical mouth piece in a world that didn’t want to hear from Him. What is God’s answer, “no problem let Me take you to those who want Me”? No. Only the promise that He would be with, save, rescue, free, redeem and strengthen Jeremiah to do what God made him for. He didn’t color coat the reality, (yep, they will fight against you, they will even come to you, still resistant, but they’ll come to you) 

It’s a rather interesting calling, eh? Not unlike each of ours. Ever had someone come to you repeatedly with the same woes, you pray with and for, give scripture for encouragement and strength, listen and shine with your words the Light of Life: and they keep coming back – even display all sorts of human madness in their behavior towards you? At times belittling, gossiping, slandering you, but to your face they seem a friend? At times distancing themselves from you, and you wonder, will they ever really want to know ME?  At times angry at you because you won’t “come their way” in your thinking? Is there any of these that God, Himself, doesn’t know far more intimately in experience with every human ever created? Including you? So how can He have the audacity to ask it of us? And not only ask us to experience all that but to forgive and remain faithful!? The question is, do we want to become more like Him or like the us we can be without Him. He is faithful and forgives beyond reckoning to our finite minds. It is possible to do as He does – but not without Him. 

For this mitzvah which I Am giving you today is not too hard for you, it is not beyond your reach. It isn’t in the sky, so that you need to ask, ‘Who will go up into the sky for us, bring it to us and make us hear it, so that we can obey it?’ Likewise, it isn’t beyond the sea, so that you need to ask, ‘Who will cross the sea for us, bring it to us and make us hear it, so that we can obey it?’ On the contrary, the Word is very close to you – in your mouth, even in your heart; therefore, YOU CAN DO IT!  ~ Deuteronomy 30:11-14

In all the search for purposes and meanings to one’s life, the search will end only when they find what Paul, Moses, Jeremiah (and the list goes on) found. That every thought, every function, every action – everything depended on the constant communication and obedience to the One who made them. That He was at the center of every question, and His answers were THE only answers. That doing as He did, does and what He tells them is THE purpose of their existence. That the vadi wasn’t deceptive – or only sometimes filled with water: the world around them is. Yes, that includes those “good things and people” in that world. Nothing can be completely relied upon but Him. Not family, not friends, not that great feeling of accomplishment in any thing on this earth, not romance, not adrenaline rushed fun, not hard work and persistence, not anything here, no concept of man for lasting peace and happiness. And heres the real kicker: not even your own process to having that relationship with God. He will change it up just to remind you: you don’t have what is needed to live life to the full here on your own. It’s all Him, dependant on Him – let Him go for one second and see how far you fall. Yet He’s faithfulness to teach us, His patience and great desire for us to be that connected to Him never ceases. We fall, always into His hands, we fly, always in His Spirit, we run, always in His strength, we forgive, always on the measure in which we receive His forgiveness, we speak His Truth, or we speak lies, we offer kindness, always on the kindness we experience from Him alone, we have compassion, always on our ability to see His compassion for us….we exist with purpose only based on the finding of that purpose IS Him! 

It may sound boring or even incomprehensible to some. It is not, but the job of convincing is not ours. Jeremiah’s question is our question, his answer – our answer. It will not change with time, generations, cultures, fads, society, conditions on this earth. It has and always will remain the same: 

Who do you say that I Am?”

How can one answer such a question without knowing Him? Common sense alone teaches: to know something or someone, one must drive thru the halls of that thing or person forever, without quitting to really know them or it. They must have actual experiences with that thing or person. It is not something you can draw a conclusion to and categorize and file away. It’s living, moving, constant experience. Or it’s dead. Sacrifice comes in the form of giving up your right to define everything from your perspective. Sacrifice is love! The first and most important instruction from God?

“Sh’ma Yisrael! ADONAI Eloheinu, Adonai achad  (Hear, Israel! ADONAI our God, ADONAI is one); and you are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart, all your being and all your resources. These words, which I Am ordering you today, are to be on your heart; and you are to teach them carefully to your children. You are to talk about them when you sit at home, when you travel on the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them on your hand as a sign, put them at the front of a headband around your forehead, and write them on the door-frame of your house and on your gates. ~ Deuteronomy 6:4-9 

Notice the total consumption that this entails. It’s not once a day, once a week, even once an hour. It’s constant, continual. 

For those who have a hard time undertaking the old Testament is one with the new. 

“Rabbi, which of the mitzvot in the Torah is the most important?” He (Yeshua – Jesus) told them, “You are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”  ~ Matthew 22:36-37   

If sacrifice is love, as defined as above, then this first and most commandment would definitely demand an all consuming nature to constantly be giving up our perspective for His, in everything, in every second, in every circumstance, with everyone and everything we encounter, Forever! 

What kind of depth do you allow for the kind of peace and contentment in this world in your living for God? How consuming is it? Is Jeremiah’s question your question? Are you asking the One who can answer? Will you accept with joy and purpose His answer no matter if it’s the one you want? Are you looking for your purpose for existing?

May you be found by Him, and know…

✡ Grace and peace to you, in the Name and person, Yeshua the Messiah, now and forever! ✡

One Person Wrote…

December 19, 2017 at 1:04 am (Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , )

One person wrote…and many agree

But do they do the practice of returning unto Thee?

Many eyes have read, and hearts have leaned towards

But have those hearts sang along with heavens wooing chords?

If we read such prayers, and our feet should fail to turn

These words become the smokey air as this paper burns. 

2 Chronicles 7:15

Now My eyes will be opened and My ears will pay attention to the prayer made in this place.   

Ecclesiastes 5:4-7

If you make a vow to God, don’t delay in discharging it. For God takes no pleasure in fools, so discharge your vow! Better not to make a vow than to make a vow and not discharge it. Don’t let your words make you guilty, and don’t tell the Temple Official that you made a vow by mistake. Why give God reason to be angry at what you say and destroy what you have accomplished? For this is what happens when there are too many dreams, aimless activities, and words. Instead, just fear God!

Misinterpretation Exchanged for Perspective

April 20, 2015 at 12:10 am (Devotionals, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

image

We all know how many read so many scriptures but they get to a part where God says He’ll turn His hands against them and slam the book closed; feeling justified that they can validate their lack of belief in Him “because any God that turns against us must not be a “good” God.” But they fail to keep reading! Look! Look what His hand turning against us means.

1) cleansing
2) restoration

Inarguably painful and often difficult these processes, but then LOOK at the results.

1) righteousness
2) faithful (trusting)
3) redeemed

These are the new names we are given. It’s so often overlooked that the reason God’s hand is turned against us is because we first turn away from Him. Much as we often seem to “turn against” our children when they disobey, in order to correct, protect, teach, and guide them into the right way of living. So God, because He loves us makes sure we “go it alone” when we live inside our bodies and our hours and minutes of living doing things our own way instead of the way that brings life. God is the Author of Life. He uses death to His own Life purposes, but does not authorize such ways of living. One could aptly picture His hand swooping up to our behinds for a tap, as His hand turning against us. Or smacking a hand before it reaches a hot burner. In the latter, should the hand continue not to heed the warning, He steps back and let’s us learn the hard way. Ready to run cold water over the burn and apply grace as His salve to the wound. It’s stunning how often and quickly He knows when to let the hand be burned instead of constantly playing referee. Notice how He didn’t show up at that tree in the garden when the snake struck Eve. He didn’t get in her face and say “hey, remember what I said, don’t listen to him he’s a liar!” Nor did He get in Satan’s face and say, “Leave her alone, she’s mine, be gone!” It smacks up against our logic. Why didn’t He? “A good God would have intervened!” Right?

Ahhhh, such is the reality that His ways are not ours and His thoughts fall into a realm of Wisdom we are incapable of without Him. It’s like the difference between justice and fairness. God is just. Always, one hundred percent of the time. Yet, we equate justice with our idea of fairness. A huge mistake. I beg your time for an example. Let’s turn to a parable Yeshua (Jesus) gave. It’s found in Matthew 20, verses 1-16. He starts out by saying, “The Kingdom of heaven is like…” and proceeds to tell of a farmer who goes out to find workers for his field. He goes out at 9am, noon, and three, hiring workers at each time. Then goes out at an hour before quitting time and hires another. The workers come in to collect their pay and find that everyone got the same pay, no matter how long they had worked. Needless to say the first worker was feeling the weight of mankind’s version of fairness and pressed into the farmer to express his point of view. The farmer replies that its his land and his money and the worker agreed to work for the money that now laid in his hand, and to focus on his word being true in his hand and not the method in which he applied to everyone else. The last words Yeshua says in this story is, “thus the last shall be first and the first shall be last” Often these words further confuse the one without eyes to see beyond their idea of fairness.

But let’s look at a different point of view. Each worker has a family to feed. God’s perspective includes everything, everything we effect as well as our own hearts needing growth. God tends to the needs of all, not the pride of one. Each worker went home and was able to feed their families, not just take pride in a whole days work. The grace given to the last worker of the day, likely fed his family well beyond the hour of work in one single day, causing him to work harder. The grace given to the first worker, having been rejected and replaced with pride and puffiness, likely didn’t meet the needs of his family much beyond the day he was saying goodnight to. Ungratefulness is the symptom of pride. Pride loves to critisize authority. I love this parable because it shows how God keeps His Word to care for us, not depending on our interpretation of earning or deserving but on His Word alone. He meets the needs of countless people when He meets the needs of the one.

image

Understanding what it means when God turns against and when He deals in justice verses our idea of what correction and fairness looks like is a flood of revelation to the soul. It makes it so easy to have our minds “changed” and draw near to Him who has all things well in hand. Just like He did in the garden, and every second since. Truly all glory and honor and praise belongs to Him and Him alone! Worthy is the One who is, was, and is to come!

Misinterpretation is also a symptom of pride. Pride is the ultimate blinder of all God is and all He does and His heart that is the only good heart in existence. Perspective is everything, give yours to God and the exchange will change your life, and likely countless lives you effect everyday as long as you draw breath.
