Jesus’s Comings

Matthew 24: 44  “Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

In the Song of Solomon, Chapter 5,  the Shulamite woman was not ready for the Beloved when His hand was on the latch of her door.   Though she was intimate with Him,  her spirit  stirring at His very presence, her soul failed her as she did not want to be inconvenienced in having to get back up from bed.   It is similar with the five foolish Virgins.  All ten virgins in the parable had a level of relationship with Jesus Christ, yet only five were ready to meet their Bridegroom at His arrival.  The other five allowed other things to take priority over their Beloved.   When the call came for their Bridegrooms soon arrival, they found they had little oil left in their lamps..  They  never made a point to cultivate their relationship with the Holy Spirit, and had never gone beyond receiving Jesus as not only their Savior, but also the Lord and King of their hearts.    When the Bridegroom arrived,  they cried for Him to open the door for them, but it remained shut.  He never knew them., because they never allowed themselves to get to know HIM.

Getting back to the Shulamite woman in the Song of Solomon,  there is a prophetic correlation between her experience and the disciples’ experience of sleeping in Gethsemane while Jesus was asking , “Could you not watch and pray with me for one hour?”  At the end of verse 1, Chapter 5, we read: “Eat, oh friends, and drink;  drink deeply, oh Lovers.”  This verse seems prophetic of when Jesus broke the bread and offered His disciples wine in the upper room.    “Take , eat- this is My body broken for you.”  With the wine, He said, “Drink of it;  all of you, for this is My blood of the covenant which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” This intimate moment between Jesus, our Bridegroom and His disciples was truly a sacred event.. no doubt with tears of emotion shared between them as they shared that bread and wine.. in rememberance of Him, and His Sacrifice He was about to do for all mankind’s sake.    Jesus, full of tenderness , could truly say with passion to His disciples, and all who sincerely take Holy Communion, “Eat, oh friends, and drink;  drink deeply, Oh lovers!”

In verse 2 of Song of Solomon, the Shulamite woman continues:  “I slept but My heart was awake.  Hark!  My Beloved is kneeling.   “Open to Me, My sister, My love, My dove, My perfect one- for My head is wet with dew, My locks with the drops of the night.”   Her Beloved had just endured the labor of spiritual battle against the Enemy.  It was so intense that His hair was wet with perspiration .. from the events of the night.  No doubt, He sought solace and encouragement from the one He loved, but she was too comfortable  to get out of her bed to open the door for  Him.  When she finally made the effort, He had departed

In Gethsemane, Jesus , also, endured great spiritual attack from the forces of darkness, where His hair and body was drenched with His own perspiration..  as though drenched in blood.  (and it is quite probable that His perspiration was also mixed with actual blood).   “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me;  nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt.”  He cried to the Father after falling on His face in agonizing prayer.  Scripture continues:  “And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping and He said to Peter, “so could you not watch with Me for one hour?”  “Watch and pray that you may not enter temptation.  The spirit, indeed, is willing but the flesh is weak.”

Just as with the Shulamite in the Song of Solomon,  Jesus’s closest disciples gave into their flesh and failed to be available when their Bridegroom needed them the most.   Notice how the scripture is worded, “He Came” to the disciples.  Just as the Beloved CAME to the Shulamite at an inconvenient time for her,  our Lord often comes to us.. when we least expect or are ready for Him.    There are many visitations Jesus gives us, before His Final Return on this Earth.

In verse 6 of Song of Solomon, we read:  “I opened to My Beloved, but My Beloved had turn and gone.  My soul failed Me when He spoke.  I sought Him but found Him not.  I called Him but He gave no answer.”   In Matthew 26:  45-46, we are shown how Jesus was taken away from His disciples.   Seized by the temple guards right after they awoke from their slumber.   Ready to surrender Himself to His enemies, and knowing they were about to take Him, verse 45 reads:  “Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest?  Behold, the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.”     While His disciples were not ready or prepared , Jesus , Himself, was always alert and prepared for His Father’s will.   Nothing caught Him off guard.. no matter how inconvenient the situation was.  So abandoned is He to the Father’s will.

After Jesus surrendered Himself to the temple guards and was taken away,  His disciples could then say with the Shulamite woman:   “I opened to My Beloved, but My Beloved had turned and gone.  My soul failed Me when He spoke.”…    And after the three long days of hiding after Jesus was put to death by crucifixion and His body had “disappeared” from His tomb, they could also say, ”  I sought Him but found Him not.  I called Him, but He gave no answer.”

After Jesus’s resurrection, He came to them again.. behind locked doors., and there was much rejoicing.   He, in His mercy, came to them, even though they had left Him alone at His most vulnerable moments before His death.

How ironic and typical our human nature is that we get so easily offended in God when it seems HE is being  quiet, and unresponsive toward us,  yet when HE knocks on the doors of our hearts, we have no problem ignoring Him.    Recall the incident when Jesus was asleep on the disciples boat during a storm over the Sea of Galilee.  Jesus was asleep, but His spirit was very much awake, and was aware of what was going on.   In fear, the disciples  awoke Him with a tone of resentment, “Master, do you care not that we perish!?”, they said.   He calmly sat up in the boat, rebuked the sea and the waves, and asked them, “why are you still afraid.  Do you still have no faith?”

I just now asked Jesus in prayer, if He would allow me to open up to something of His recorded words from “He and I” pertaining to this topic (since this is HIS blog)..   and wow, here is what He had me open up to! :

“…In the very place where I want your love, beyond and above all things.  Above all things- that is where I Am.   Rise to meet Me.  Always.”

Visions from the Lord

My Beloved Is Mine

It is my sincere hope that everyone reading this is filled with the joy of Christ.  Today I want to share with you all a series of dream encounters I had with the Lord this week.

I received one on Monday, and two on Thursday.

The Lord has been answering my prayer to have more encounters with Him, and for them to become more tangible.  Recently I renewed a request I had abandoned some time ago, to see Him on His cross. To be there with Him. A little bit before this I had a vision in the spirit where I was trying to make it through the crowd as they were leading Him to Golgotha, crying out for them to let Him go.  And just after I started making this request to Him I began having small visions in the spirit of scenes from movies where He is dying…

Below is an excerpt from bro. Micah Turnbow’s experience with God, the Father as he was taken up into Heaven…   Here we see a little glimpse of what the Father shared to Micah of His love and anointing to Jesus., before He incarnated to Earth to give His life for us:

“…. I cannot put into words how great God is—His glory was undeniably beautiful. His large firey-blue eyes pierced my soul with love only God can give. His face was like diamonds; much like the robe of Jesus with hundreds of rays of lights coming out of him. He was looking right at me with an intensity of joy. His robe was like the clouds hovering around Him with lighting flashing amidst it. My Father smiled at me and blew on my face.

“Receive, my son,” His voice was so thunderous but gentle. His voice is heard throughout heaven, but it is not unpleasant—it is the most powerful and humbling voice you can experience. He doesn’t hurt your ears, but His voice is in your ear. His voice is so close to you; it sounds like he is right next to your ear. “Receive my love and come closer.”

I took a deep breath to absorb His gift to me; His breath of life. I took one step forward, and I was picked up by His hand and brought to His chest. I looked at His glorious face and did not turn away. By His right hand, He poured oil on me that smelt like honey. I noticed that the oil was coming from His head which is the joy of the Lord. I just rested while Father ministered to me the way He wanted. Father’s  great diamond-like hands brushed my hair back—He was bathing me in His oil. He said to me, “This is the oil I poured out over my son before He left my presence to enter the earth; I too prepared Him for His burial. That is why it was so meaningful when the woman poured out her fragrance upon Jesus. It reminded my Son of me.”  ”

The Kiss: God The Father (Part2)

File_PassionMovie_HealEar

He (God) does hurt greatly.   I found out some years ago after laughing at a reenactment on a TV documentary of David and Goliath.. where David killed Goliath with a stone/slingshot.  The actor who portrayed Goliath looked silly as he fell to the ground, and I jeered and laughed at him..  When suddenly the Holy Spirit convicted me and I heard Him speak to me (without words)   He said, “you find this funny .. the death of this man and enemy of Israel?   I find it NOT funny.. I wanted that he would have opened his heart to me.. his Creator., as well as his people, but he continued to harden his heart., to the point that I had no choice but to end his life .. or he would have proceeded to end the life of my people, Isreal .   It did not please me to end his life”.

Wow, was I ever convicted after hearing that and I never thought the same again of the Lord’s enemies..   We (even we Christians) truly don’t think the way our God thinks!  We truly need the Holy Spirit to give us the mind of Christ.

This Christmas, while listening to various Christmas hymns like “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem”,  “Silent Night”, etc.,  The Holy Spirit  sparked a tiny flash of Light upon me.

It was a tiny flash of His Light which , like that tiny mustard seed, expanded into greater Light:    (Luke 13: 18-19:  “He said, “What is the Kingdom of God like? To what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and put in his own garden. It grew, and became a large tree, and the birds of the sky lodged in its branches.” ) .   As I thought upon Jesus being born into this Earth as a helpless tiny baby, I was reminded of that tiny insignificant mustard seed-  that represents the Kingdom of God.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, IS that tiny mustard seed, ..  that tiny poor child whose parents were not received as they sought a lodging to give Him birth.    They had to resort to a livestock stable for shelter and a feeding trough to lay the king of all Kings.   In Luke 2:52, we read, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man”.   Like that tiny mustard seed that grows into a huge tree for birds to nest.,  the Holy Spirit’s anointing in Jesus  affected everyone open to His Light, starting in Israel, and then all the outlying countries ., and ultimately the entire Earth.    He Who had no place to lay His head.,  is that Tree of Life – that grew from that mustard seed offering its branches as lodging and protection for the rest of Creation.

And just as that tiny mustard seed,   Jesus is that Light that came into this World.. a tiny flash of Light like the star the wise men followed in the night sky.  a tiny flash of light that if received in one’s heart,  spreads throughout one’s entire being like that sprouted mustard seed, until one is immersed in His Light.      As the Kingdom of God starts from a tiny mustard seed.

God begins with the tiniest of things.. the lowliest and smallest, and builds His Kingdom on what is practically invisible..    just like that tiny mustard seed,  that little ray of light and that tiny baby laying in a feeding trough.

The Cross.. Transformed

4d77d2d75c054e517789b251f7f25923

I was thinking this morning about how transformed the cross has become over the centuries… after Jesus was crucified on it.    Since Jesus was cruelly , tortuously murdered on a cross,   it has been transformed into a symbol of love.,  of sacrifice and hope.     It has been engraved in altars and chiseled out of marble and precious stone.   It has been carved out of  crystal and placed on mantle tops,  it has been formed out of sterling silver or gold and worn as an elegant jewelry reminding the wearer that Someone special died for them.

Prior to Jesus’s death on a cross, a cross was nothing more than a rough hewn ugly construction of wood..  full of splinters ..  and something barbaric created by the Babylonians and perfected as the ultimate execution tool by the Romans.   The cross wasn’t beautiful and  in areas it is still being used today as a form of execution, it is still ugly.    Only Jesus could transform an ugly cross into something beautiful because of why He allowed Himself to die on one.. for the love of His Father and the sake of all mankind.

Jesus.. a carpenter’s son worked with wood, and chopped, cut, polished wood for years along with His step-father, Joseph, and His Heavenly Father.  Jesus made many things out of ordinary wood.   Jesus’s ultimate Masterpiece was how blessed that cross became as He shed His blood upon it, dying for us all.   He didn’t have to carve, buff, chisel or shape it to make it beautiful.   He transformed it by what He made it become-   an instrument of love and ultimate sacrifice.     Only Jesus could transform something ugly as a rugged cross into something precious .    Only Jesus, our Redeemer, can transform us into someone formed, shaped, buffed and polished .. made precious without splinters, by His shed blood.

ps..   after meditating on this.. I asked our Lord if He would give me anything from His words recorded in ‘He and I” regarding this post.    I blindly opened to the following from Him:    “..I created and redeemed you, and with what love!”

In the Old Testament, in 2nd Kings 5:  9-13,   we read of Naaman, a  Syrian general with leprosy who was told about the prophet, Elisha, in Isreal who might be able to obtain healing for him.   Naaman had a lot of wealth and power.., and held a high office in Syria.. so when he went with his assigned men to Jerusalem, he came with his chariots and horses..

Regardless of the fact that he held such high prestige, and that it would have made the prophet look good to have such an honorable guest., Elisha  was not led to come out of his home to greet him, but was led to give directions to a messanger to relay to Naaman as to what God required him to do in order to be healed of his leprosy.     This, of course, offended Naaman, who felt that he deserved far more honor and courtesy than that..  at least the prophet could have come out of his home to greet him.   To make matters even worse,  he was highly offended that the instructions were for him to dip himself  7 times  in the muddy Jordan River.., especially when there were much cleaner rivers available, and after all…  he is a Syrian general..  who does this prophet think he is dealing with?

Naaman almost turned his horses and chariots around to leave, when one of his servants reasoned with him , saying, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, ‘Wash and be cleansed’!  , and so, Naaman thought about it for a bit, and realized that his servant made a good point.  What did he have to lose anyway.,  Against his personal preferences,  he obeyed and  dipped himself seven times in the Jordan river, and came out healed.

 

(“…So Naaman went with his horses and chariots and stopped at the door of Elisha’s house. 10 Elisha sent a messenger to say to him, “Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.”

11 But Naaman went away angry and said, “I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy. 12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Couldn’t I wash in them and be cleansed?” So he turned and went off in a rage.

13 Naaman’s servants went to him and said, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, ‘Wash and be cleansed’!” 14 So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy.”)

Centuries later, another Man dipped Himself into the muddy Jordan River..   This Man also holds a high “office”., .. in fact, this Man is a King.. of all Kings., yet this Man did not come to the Jordan River in fine horses and chariots.  He came by foot and stood in line to wait His turn behind others being dipped in the Jordan.    He did not balk or complain about having to step into dirty water, and be submerged in baptism.   Yes, there were far pristine rivers for Him to be baptized in..   and even John the Baptist tried to discourage Him.    “I need to be baptized by You, and yet you come to me?”, John said to Him.    Yet Jesus gently replied, ” Suffer it to be so for now: for thus it becomes us to fulfill all righteousness.”

So in both portions of the Scripture , we see the contrast in humility between someone of this World in high position, who was incredibly offended in being directed to dip himself in the Jordan River.,    and Someone of the Highest Office.. not of this World,. a King of all Kings.., of every Universe , yet He graciously, humbly waited His turn to be completely submerged in the muddy Jordan River.. even though He didn’t HAVE to , but because He wanted to obey the Father in every way.

This Man., this King in Exile, offers mankind the crystal clear, pristine Living Waters of the River of Life, yet He, Himself.. to fulfill all the Father’s Righteousness, willingly allowed John the Baptist to submerge Him in the muddy Jordan River without complaint.    What a study in Contrasts between Jesus’s humility and inner nature compared with the ruler’s of this World!

Hard Copy vs Electronic Bible

A word to the wise.. My pastor recommends a hard copy of the old hard copy Revised Standard Version, or the King James version the best!..

My Dreams and Visions

I am going to begin this post I by revisiting some prior dreams I’ve had on deception.

This first one was from 2012.

I had a dream 10/17/2012. In the dream I saw a safety razor, the kind one would use for shaving. I saw this razor being dragged over the Word of God. With each pass of the razor, a little bit of the Word, the truth, would disappear. The Lord said that this was deception . It starts out with truth and then, over time, shaves it away, a little at a time. I remember warning people in the dream to get into the word, meditate upon it and memorize it because the darkness is coming and the truth of the Word will be distorted by seducing spirits –

This second dream is from 2013

The Lord dropped a scripture into my spirit yesterday 06/12/2013 from the book…

His Love For The Father

151B108BD

 

Below is an excerpt from “Journal Of An Unknown Prophet”,   by Wendy Alec.    Wendy was given these insights , journeys into Heaven in spirit and visitations from Jesus which she recorded in her journals and was later led to have published..      The following excerpt is such a beautiful description of Jesus’s absolute Love for His Father..

“….And as I looked into His eyes, I saw His terrible grief for the peoples of the Earth.  His incredible tenderness and love for His Church and for those of His household, and yet such a deep, desperate grieving for that which is His bride as He watches her entangled with the spirit of the world strangling her.  But as He looked at me, the sadness still in His eyes… suddenly, a radiant light and joy came again across His countenance, and I know that His thoughts were with His most beloved- His breath- His very heartbeat- His Father.

For there is not a moment when the Son does not think about the Father;  there is not a second when the concerns of the Father do not concern the Son.  And there is not a moment when the Father’s thoughts are not with His beloved, His only begotten- obedient even unto death by crucifixion.  And how they love the Spirit, the Holy Spirit, the great Transmitter of all that the Father and the Son think and will and do.

And so it is that the brilliance on Jesus’s countenance grew brighter and more intense, and slowly- oh so slowly- He turned His face to me and smiled.  It seemed that the whole of Heaven’s joy was in that smile.  And His eyes shone brilliantly with such an exhilaration and excitement and with the anticipation of His Father’s presence.  And so it is that He threw His head back and laughed with an unspoilt child’s delight.  And I knew that He had heard from the One He loved more than life itself- His beloved Father- and that He had been called to Him.

Then Jesus turned to me and took my hand:  “The Father, Himself loves you.  He would speak with you”  And Jesus and I exchanged the look that brother and sister would exchange, that only they would understand, the love shared between them for a beloved parent….”
