God Said it First

October 18, 2014 at 1:08 am (Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder) (, , , , , , , , , , )

If it is Truth, pure, right, worthy, or wise. ..God said it first. When I read other authors, listen to other speakers/teachers. ..I listen for the sign that they belong to God. The words they speak; though arranged differently, some more expanded, some more simple; have a ‘ring’ to them. They are repeats for what Adonai (the Lord God), Yeshua (Jesus), or the Spirit has spoken from the dawn of time. The Word of the Living God.
Those who wrote what is now called The Bible were taught, inspired, or directly told what to say by God, Himself. Paul said he was taught by Yeshua Himself. The apostles witnessed themselves the speaking, teaching and living of Yeshua. .. their ‘books’ come as a result of that and their own living, walking relationship with Yeshua.

The following are quotes by various people; some still alive, some now part of the cloud of witnesses. Below the quote is the Living Word… where it was said first… or at least where it can be traced back to where its been said by God before any human. Solomon is famous for ‘his’ wisdom but we know he asked for wisdom from God. Hence where his wisdom comes. Ours too. .. and those who have come and gone and yet will be. If they will have wisdom. .. it too will come only from God. He has the copy write. .. but the thing is. .. He is happy to share and let us put His truth and wisdom into words that present day audiences will be able to understand. He gets the glory. .. There is no doubt in His mind. 🙂

The Saint’s Fortification ~ Part 3

July 30, 2013 at 11:35 pm (Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

image

***Taken from The Christian in Complete Armor by William Gurnall.***

3. Avoid Entrapment

Be sure also, Child of God, to keep to the plains. That is, do not let Satan lure you into doctrinal traps where you can neither fight nor flee. One of his tactics is to lead you through a maze of impertinent questions intended to retard your progress toward heaven. Sometimes he asks a soul which it embraces? – free will or predestination? And whichever answer it gives, he confounds it with his crafty reply. Another time, he will demand to know the exact day and hour of your salvation, and if you cannot answer, he will challenge your right to claim kinship to Christ.

When Satan badgers you with trivial inquiries, do not try to reason with him. Answer him with your present position in Christ and His sure work of grace in your soul. Never forget that the simple truth of the Word reduces all the intricacies of Satan to a worthless heap of lies.

Now suppose you escape the trap of pointless questions; what will you do when Satan leads your trust down a trail of obscure scriptures? I am talking about those difficult passages which rush past the understanding as a mountain stream past the eye, until dizzy and disoriented, one drops in despair of their own condition. The wine of the gospel is heady stuff! Too much study in difficult places can confuse your soul and weaken your trust. Once again, keep to the plains. Combat Satan’s attack with simple scriptures – those most likely to nourish your trust and cheer your spirit. When you meet such straightforward scriptures as speak to your own walk, use them to ford the flood of temptation, and do not venture beyond your depth.

Satan will try to draw you off your steadfast course to heaven in still another way – by the presence of circumstances you cannot understand. With them, Satan argues against God’s steadfast love, and for your soul. First (by God’s permission) he pillaged Job’s earthly possessions, and then fell to work on his spiritual estate. He used every circumstance and everybody at his disposal. He had Job’s wife blame God; he had Job’s friends condemn the man himself. Satan convinced them all – except Job – that an afflicted condition and state of grace could not live together in the same house.

Here’s a timely warning when you find your soul adrift in a heavy fog of tribulation: neither accuse God foolishly of your enemies mischief, nor charge yourself with belonging to the enemy. God can chart a straight course in the worst storm. He can be righteous when He uses wicked instruments, and gracious when He dispenses harsh providences. Do not over-react to changes in your temporal estate. Christ told us to expect some rough sailing before we reach heaven’s shore.

Your perspective should be very different from that of the unregenerate. Like naive children, they think everyone loves them who gives them plums (or candy now). They do not realize that prosperity can be a curse to bind them in a deeper sleep of false security. Remember how Jael served Sisera (Judges 5:25-26). She gave him milk though he asked for water, that she might more surely nail him to the ground – milk having the property, it is said, to incline sleep. But the Child of God in an afflicted state has a key to decipher God’s providence. The Spirit, through the Word, teaches you to read the shorthand of His dispensations: every son whom He loves, He corrects. Behind the travail of every affliction is a blessing waiting to be born.

Everything Means Something

May 31, 2013 at 1:48 am (Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

image

In the Beginning…
Adonai Elohim was.
His was, is, and ever shall be…always.
Everything that has/had a beginning began in Him.
Nothing…nothing that ever has been, will be and is now is outside His constructive brilliant presence.

Adam from beginning to his last earthbound breath…still lives
Abraham
Noah
Job
Samuel
Elijah
Elisha
Isaiah
Jeremiah
David
Ester
Ruth
Malachi
Solomon
Matthew
Mark
Luke
John
James
Peter
Timothy
Paul
Luther
Churchill
Tozer
Lewis
ALIVE!

Because of Yeshua (Jesus).
Beginning and End, 1st and Last, Alpha and Omega and Aleph to Tav.

The strings of meaning dangle and sing; hanging from every word; dipped in the purest of gold from Genesis to…who can know but Him who has, is, was and always shall be the last Word. The Living Word sings as rocks can not – this song.

In 1824, George MacDonald came forth from a womb. Years and years before many came before…all meant to bring him. A Scottish warrior, who bent against the religion of his times; and walked up to the Throne and said,

“If there is a God, let Him…Himself tell me about Himself. For the God being preached and taught by man shares no resemblance to this Yeshua (Jesus), I read of. He is Love incarnate and a Fire of Truth to be lived. I must know Him.”

A boy, seemingly insignificant…sat at Yeshua’s feet and took notes, and lived what Adonai wrote upon his heart.

1892…J.J.R. Tolkien emerged from a womb. Many lives before him came…so he could be.

Every breath George MacDonald took would engrave meaning upon Tolkeins mind and heart. George’s “work” in combination with Yeshua’s own special touch in J.J…brought us; A Hobbits Tale and Lord of the Rings. Theirs dripped down those skeins of time into C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia.

Swinging from one string to the next Adonai…working, shaping, and orchestrating each person listed on the credits to make those Epic movies (The Lord of the Ring – LotR). Each person handcrafted specifically for those purposes. From Adam to Yeshua to George to Tolkien to Andrew Jackson (producer of LotR).

Do you see the meaning? Every Sunset took part, every rising of the Sun, every heart ache, every joy unabated. Every person who touched them…touch us too. Everything means something! And it all leads to Yeshua. The God of all Creation and Possibilities! The Master of Ceremonies in this Life. The Executive Producer of everyone’s – every minute. Never ever entertain such thoughts of insignificance O Child of Elohim!!
Let the dead bury the dead…but remember if anything had light in it, anything or anyone crashed a wave of Truth on your shores…its still ALIVE!

Many of those who touched the Lives of any listed above served eternal purposes! Even the chimney sweeper! Indeed the refuse worker too! Some contributed to their minds, some hearts, some the body, some for good, some for ill, some for sharing intimately, some for brushing briefly, some to write upon their hearts, some they wrote upon. Yet all -all were written by the Right Hand of a Mighty God!

Look not just to those who share your everyday experiences; but look at your grocery store worker with new eyes! The Waste-worker you never see means something along your skein of time. If there is someone who never fails to place your hand in Yeshua’s, hold them in the highest as a treasure from Heaven. If it be an author long gone to His side…repeat their words. If someone present in your today, thank Yeshua for His showing up physical again with abounding grace! The very leaves that crackle as they tread within your hearing, the birds you never stop to listen to, the countless puffy white clouds that script write His love on the sky that produces air for your lungs. LOOK!! Look at it all my fellow sheep and knowEVERYTHING MEANS SOMETHING and it All points to Him. Ask Him to show you, and you will never see the world around you through your eyes again.

There is a tiny book, just before Revelations called Jude. Not very noted by most. One “chapter”, yet in actuality its a letter. One letter from Jude, named Y’hudah in his native tongue (Hebrew). Look who its to.

Jude 1:1-2

From Y’hudah, a slave of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah and a brother of Ya’akov (Jacob).
To: those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept for Yeshua the Messiah: May mercy, love and shalom (peace) be yours in full measure
.

Fast forward to the end…to one of the most amazing blessings to you and I

Jude 1:24-25

Now, to the One who can keep you from falling and set you without defect and full of joy in the presence of His Sh’khinah (Divine Presence, the manifest glory of God present with men)
to God alone, our Deliverer, through Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord – be glory, majesty, power and authority before all time, now and forever.
Amen.

There is no such thing a small in the Kingdom of Heaven.
