The NIGHT COMETH.... WORK!





Work…for the Night Cometh

I must work the works of HIM that sent ME+,
while it is day:
the night cometh,
when no man can work.

As long as I am in the world,
I am the Light of the world.
John 9:4,5


Our LORD JESUS CHRIST spoke these words to His+ disciples as they questioned him about the man born blind, whom The LORD subsequently healed in a marvelous fashion.

HE+ is speaking these words now to me.

For several days, as I sought His+ direction, The LORD has only said this:


“Work, for the night is coming.”


Furthermore, HE+ has said it several times.

+ + +

And I beheld,
and heard an angel flying
through the midst of Heaven*,
saying with a loud voice,

Woe, woe, woe,
to the inhabiters of the earth

by reason of the other voices of the trumpet
of the three angels,
which are yet to sound!
Revelation 8:13

+ + +


This ominous warning is full of mysteries:
how does one HEAR an angel flying?

Even more mysterious is WHERE the angel is flying.

The Greek text uses the phrase: en mesouranAmati. This does NOT mean “in the middle of Heaven.” En means “in”, signifying the use of the dative case. But the word mesouranAmati means: the highest point of the sun’s circuit in the sky, the zenith, midair, directly overhead.

Thus, a more accurate reading would be:
“And I heard an angel flying
at / within the highest point of the sun’s circuit.”

Work…for the Night Cometh.

+ + +





In the name of The FATHER, The SON+, and The HOLY SPIRIT,

both now and forever.

Amen.

From the letter of the Apostle Paul to the Christians at Ephesus




....... be strong in the Lord+ and in the Power of His+ might.


Put on the whole armor of GOD, so that you may be able to stand against the tricks of the devil.




For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities,(kosmokrators) powers (archons), against the rulers of the darkness of this world system, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places.


Because of this, take to yourself the entire armor of GOD, that you may be able oppose and resist the evil that comes against us.


Because of this STAND, girding your waist with TRUTH+, putting on the breastplate of righteousness;


wearing as shoes the Gospel of Peace;


Above all, taking up the shield of Faith, with which you are able to extinguish all the fiery arrows of the wicked ones.


And put on the helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the WORD of GOD.


Always praying in the SPIRIT and persevering in watching and supplication for all Christians, all saints.


Br. Brendon Patrick; writing today for Sr.Judith.

Peace to you, and Love with Faith, from GOD the FATHER and the Lord JESUS CHRIST.

THE SECOND DEATH, part 2


The Second Death, part 2

He that hath an ear,
let him hear
what the Spirit saith unto the churches;
He that overcometh
shall not be hurt of the second death.


Words of Our LORD JESUS CHRIST, recorded in Revelation 2:11


+ + +

A second death is certain because Our LORD spoke of it, as recorded by the Apostle John in the Book of Revelation.

What else did Our LORD say about this second death?
What is recorded in Scriptures about it ?

+ + +

The Questions…

What is going to be the situation upon earth
when the second death occurs?

When is the second death coming?

What exactly IS the second death ?

Where will it be located?

Who partakes of the second death… and for how long?



The Answers…

Looking first into Revelation 20, we read [with some help from the Greek text]:

VERSE 1

And I saw an angel come down from heaven,
having the key of the bottomless pit [abyss]
and a great chain in [on] his hand.

VERSE 2

And he laid hold on the dragon,

that old [archaion,= primeval, early in time, or ancient]

serpent, [the ophin, = a sly, cunning, sharp-eyed one]

which is [esti = the singular “is”]

the Devil, and Satan, [ Punctuation in Scripture texts has been added by man and is arbitrary; the comma would not be added in modern writing. The devil and satan are not two beings but one, which is why “is” is used.]

and bound him a thousand years,

VERSE 3

And cast [threw] him into the bottomless pit [abyss],

and shut [locked] him up,

and set a seal upon him, [and sealed over him]

that he should deceive [lead astray]
the nations no more, [not any longer]

till the thousand years
should be fulfilled [should be concluded, completed]:

and after that he must be loosed a little season.
+ + +
These three verses describe the spiritual climate or situation pertaining to the earth before the Judgment of the Martyrs of The LORD JESUS CHRIST. In this wondrous and long-awaited judgment, the martyrs are awarded the judgment… i.e., judgment is proclaimed in their favor. Here is what they are awarded , verse 4:

These martyrs sat upon the Thrones and they lived and reigned with CHRIST one thousand years!


Who are these Christian Martyrs?

As an aside, these martyrs are the ones who:
· had been beheaded due to the witness of JESUS and because of the Word of GOD,
· had not worshipped the beast
· had not worshipped his image
· had not received the mark of them [the beast and his image] on their forehead
· had not received their mark on their hand

Other Christians Who Reign with The LORD…

Revelation also speaks of OTHER GROUPS of CHRISTIANS who reign with Our LORD during this first resurrection. Let us look at this familiar passage in Rev. 3:20, 21:



Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:
if any man hear My+ Voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him, and will sup with him,
and he with ME+.

To him that overcometh will I grant

to sit with ME+ in My+ throne,
even as I also overcame,
and am set down with My+ FATHER in His throne.

ALL OVERCOMING CHRISTIANS will be included. They all will sit down with Our LORD, in His+ throne ! Chapter 11, verses 17 and 18, also describe this same event.

Saying, We give THEE thanks,
O LORD GOD ALMIGHTY,
Which art, and wast, and art to come;
because THOU hast taken to THEE Thy
great power, and hast reigned.

And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come,
and the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
and that THOU SHOULDEST GIVE REWARD
UNTO THY SERVANTS THE PROPHETS,
AND TO THE SAINTS,
AND THEM THAT FEAR THY NAME,
SMALL AND GREAT;
and shouldest destroy them
which destroy the earth.



Thus we see that ALL saints, small and great, are rewarded. One of the rewards is that all saints will be sitting upon thrones, with CHRIST.




The Location of the Thrones…

Where are these Thrones that the martyrs sat upon, living and reigning? Scriptures tell us plainly, in Revelation chapter 5, verses 9 through 12:


And they [the four living creatures and 24 Elders] sung a new song, saying, THOU+ art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for THOU+ wast slain, and hast redeemed us to GOD+ by Thy+ Blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and hast made us unto our GOD kings and priests:
AND WE SHALL REIGN ON THE EARTH.

And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the living creatures and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

Saying with a loud voice,

Worthy is the LAMB+ that was slain
to receive power, and riches,
and wisdom, and strength,
and honor, and glory, and blessing.

Revelation 5:9-12

Amen and Amen!

+ + +


Now, to continue on with the Second Death…

But the rest of the dead lived not again
until the thousand years were finished.
This is the first resurrection.


Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection:
ON SUCH THE SECOND DEATH HATH NO POWER,
but they shall be priests of GOD and of CHRIST,
and shall reign with HIM+ a thousand years.

And when the thousand years are expired,
satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four
quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to
battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up ON THE BREADTH OF THE EARTH, AND COMPASSED THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS ABOUT, AND THE BELOVED CITY: and fire came down from GOD out of heaven, and devoured them [burned them down].
Revelation 20: 6-9
+ + +






Once again, we see the Thrones of the Martyrs seem to be established here on earth, in a location near or in the Beloved City.

We see the martyrs are resurrected FIRST or during the first Resurrection… which tells us there will be at least another resurrection coming!

We see that all the other folks who are dead are not resurrected yet. [This will be a resurrection for judgment and eternal damnation, as we shall see later in Revelation.] Indeed, they will not be resurrected until after a 1,000 years.

We see that those who are counted worthy to participate in the first resurrection do not experience the second death.

+ + +

It has no power nor authority whatsoever over these Reigning Saints. These are the ones who shall reign WITH CHRIST as priests and kings. They shall reign for 1,000 years on the earth, long before the rest of the dead are resurrected to face their Judgment Day.

Hear the Words of Our LORD, recorded in John 5:26-29:


For as the FATHER hath life in Himself;
so hath HE given to the SON
to have life in Himself + ;

And hath given HIM+ authority
to execute judgment also,
because HE+ is the Son of Man.

Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming,
in the which all that are in the graves
shall hear His+ voice,

And shall come forth;
THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD,
UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE;

AND THEY THAT HAVE DONE EVIL,
UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF DAMNATION.


A Fitting Departure, at Last…

And the devil that deceived them [leading them astray] was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever [unto the Ages of the Ages].
Revelation 20:10


+ + +

Worthy is the LAMB+ !
Worthy is the LAMB+ that was slain
To receive Glory, Honor, and Power !

Amen and HalleluJah !

[ The Second Death, to be continued]

In the name of The FATHER, The SON, and The HOLY SPIRIT, unto the Ages of the Ages. Amen

SOLD OUT TO JESUS


SOLD OUT TO JESUS

Years ago amongst the Jesus Freaks one could often hear this phrase, “I’m sold out… sold out to JESUS!”

This meant that believer had gone overboard. He had given his all. He had emptied himself out. He had handed over everything he had and everything he was unto the KING+ of Kings. He was a radical for the LORD JESUS CHRIST. He was sold out to JESUS !


When one is “Sold Out”, there is nothing left to do but to go on with HIM+. Usually, it means former friends are no longer interested in being friends. Oftentimes, families reject the Sold Out one, thinking him to be stupid and unwise in the ways of this world. And, being “family,” they feel free to tell him so at every opportunity. Even members of the church world look askance upon anyone truly Sold Out; it bothers them. Most generally, seasons of aloneness… long stretches of desert… await him who is Sold Out to JESUS.

The only one who will walk with him is the ONE+ Who+ said, “Lo, I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5. The Living Word+ of GOD also said, “When my father and my mother forsake me, then The LORD will take me up.” Psalm 27:10

The LORD JESUS CHRIST Himself+ gave us some promises that are not popular.

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother,
and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters,
yea, AND HIS OWN LIFE ALSO,
he cannot be my disciple.

And whosoever doth not bear his cross,
and come after me,
cannot be my disciple.
Luke 14:26,27


To be Sold Out to JESUS, there are two things one must inwardly and quietly do:

1. He must despise his own Self, his own life, and turn against his own will. (These things have gotten you into a mess!)

2. He must not put devotion to family ahead of his devotion to The LORD JESUS CHRIST. He must not put the will of his family ahead of doing the will of The LORD.

To be Sold Out to JESUS, there are two things one must do actively and aggressively:

1. He must bear his cross .

2. He must come or follow hard after The LORD JESUS.


Then… and only then… can one be Sold Out to JESUS.



Have you ever heard anyone ask, “Why don’t all those promises [of GOD] work for me ?” The answer usually given is an admonition for more faith, whipping up an intense belief, or to hold on… so that one can get what he wants from The LORD. Does that work? Is that a valid question?

The real answer, though, is another question:

“Are you Sold Out to JESUS”?
Can HE+ count on you, to TRULY follow HIM+ ?”

O LORD, THOU+ Who gave Thine all for me, help me to give my all to THEE+, with nothing held back. Remove from me faithless fears and worldly anxieties so that I may walk worthy and all-pleasing unto CHRIST our LORD. Amen.

In the Name of the FATHER, The SON, and The HOLY SPIRIT.+++

Revelation Canticle, II


Revelation Canticle, II
from Revelation 2:10, 11


These things says The FIRST+ and The LAST+,
Who+ became dead and is alive:

Be faithful until death
and I will give you the Crown of Life…

The one overcoming will not at all be hurt
by the second death.

Amen and Alleluia.

+ + +


The LORD JESUS CHRIST is the beginning and the ending, the alpha and omega, the First-born from the dead, the Head of the Creation of GOD, the Living Word, the Emmanuel…God with us.

HE+ doesn’t promise us that we will NOT have to suffer. HE+ doesn’t promise us that we will NOT have to leave our Adamic bodies. Furthermore, HE+ doesn’t promise that it will be easy to “remain faithful to HIM+ and to overcome” whatever tries to pull us away from HIMSELF+.

What HE+ does promise is for those who do remain faithful through it all. This one is called an Overcomer. To this Overcomer our Risen Victorious Savior speaks this promise:

You will not be hurt
by the second death.


A “second” death? It must be true because our Savior said it and furthermore, said it as a promise. What is this second death? [Don’t be too shocked; there’s a second birth in Scriptures, n’est-ce pas?]

To find out about the second death, we must look further into Scriptures, namely, in chapters 20 and 21 of Revelation. The Apostle John wrote, in chapter 20: 4-6 :



And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them,
and judgment was given unto them:
and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded
for the witness of JESUS,
and for the Word of GOD,
and which had not worshipped the beast,
neither his image,
neither had received his mark
upon their foreheads, or in their hands;
and they lived and reigned with CHRIST
a thousand years.


But the rest of the dead DID NOT LIVE again
until the thousand years were finished.
This is the first resurrection.


Blessed and holy is he
that hath part in the first resurrection:
on such the second death hath no power,
but they shall be priests of GOD and of CHRIST,
and shall reign with HIM+ a thousand years.

The Apostle John continues to record, in verses 14 and 15:

And death and hell (Hades Gk.)
were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written
in the book of life
was cast into the lake of fire.

+ + +

Now, consider these words found in chapter 21:6-8, spoken by “The Alpha and Omega:”

And HE+ said unto me, It is done.
I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end.
I will give unto him that is athirst
of the fountain of the water of life freely.

He that overcometh
shall inherit all things;
and I will be his God,
and he shall be My son.

But the fearful, and unbelieving,
and the abominable, and murderers,
and whoremongers, and sorcerers,
and idolaters, and all liars,
shall have their part in the lake
which burneth with fire and brimstone:
which is the second death.


Thus, we see that the second death is real, is coming, is a lake of burning fire and brimstone, and it was spoken of by Our LORD JESUS CHRIST in the first part of Revelation and in the last few chapters.

What else did Our LORD say about this? When is it coming? Who was it prepared for?


[The Second Death will be continued.]

O Gracious Heavenly FATHER,
O THOU Who did not give over man to death without making a way possible for him to live, we beseech THEE to plant in us such a desire to love and please THEE, and such a right fear of THEE, that we may be both afraid and ashamed to offend THEE, O FATHER of Life. This we pray through the sure mercies of Thy Beloved SON, our LORD JESUS CHRIST, Who liveth and reigneth with THEE and Thy Blessed HOLY SPIRIT, both now and forever, unto the Ages of ages. Amen.

WATCH!


Jesus said; "What I say to you, I say to all, WATCH"

It's very hot here today! But as one sister said; "at least this heat doesn't cost anything!"

We have no air conditioning at the hermitage, but we do have a lot of large shade trees. Most of the time there is a cool breeze.

I just read that oil is expected to go up to $150.00 a barrel by July 4th!
Todays price was $137.00 a barrel I think. Other commodities will follow it's increase.

I emphasize that it is time to put our Lord's+ words into action in our lives. A human being doesn't need very much to live on planet earth for their short tenure here. Food, clothing, a basic shelter. They do not need plasma T.V. sets, cell-phones, $1000.00 a month house payments, or the latest "in" vehicle, which does not get very many miles to the gallon!

What the Christian does need is a closeness to Christ through living and breathing with Him+ daily, and the knowledge that only the Holy Spirit can give. The enabling Grace to overcome in this life, and to overcome also if it is time for the last general persecution of the Body of Christ on the earth to begin, called in Scripture " great tribulation" or "time of Jacob's trouble".
Let us all become aware that the "serving of mammon" is about at it's end. The lie that it has been all along, will become openly apparent in the near future. Jesus our Lord has warned us about this, although many in the organized religious setting have chosen to go against Him+ in this.
To their sorrow, I am afraid.

WEDGES... AND FOG...


WEDGES and FOG…

Spiritual wedges and spiritual fog are in focus today.
The issue is what SEPARATES family members and/or Christian friends. Deceptive wedges and dense spiritual fog are the tools of the enemy.

Spiritual fog is when things are happening spiritually but you don’t know how to get a hold of it; you cannot define it or give “it” a name… but you know something is afoot. Emotional reactions are irrational, at best. Sometimes they are explosive when the least little word, seemingly, will trigger them off. Everyone walks on egg-shells so as not to “have another one”… and the family unity and peace shattered for that day.

This kind of interaction is bad enough among worldlings but unfortunately, it happens among Christian families also.

SPIRITUAL WEDGES

Spiritual wedges are at the root of such happenings. These awful wedges come between each one of us and our family members or Christian friends. The wicked spirits start lying to us … and lo, we believe them.

It works like this. The accuser of the Brethren whispers some favorite accusation to the wife (or husband or friend). She unwittingly considers its merit: Is it true… and if so, how much? Thus, the entrance for the wedge is cracked open.


“JUST CONSIDER THIS…”

The accuser begins to point out to her consideration all the times husband has done things that might be evidence of this accusation. Thus, the accuser builds his case and the first wedge is driven. What happens then?

Every time husband does anything, it will look to her (with the skillful help of the accuser) as confirmation that the accusation is TRUE!

Keep in mind that we are not talking about very serious things like infidelity or murder. We are talking about daily living issues: doing household chores and repairs, tending the children, how household money is spent, how time is spent, interaction with others, etc.

THE SPIRITUAL WEDGE-DRIVER


One wedge is driven. Having such great success, the accuser continues on to plant yet another accusation in wife’s heart… and the wedges are steadily driven, one by one, between the Christian wife and her Christian husband. Spiritual fog sets in and no-one can tell what is REALLY happening. Focus is on the outward situation and words and of course, feelings.

Meanwhile, the same thing is happening inside the husband. He has been in a fog for awhile, plodding along, ignoring warning signs of discomfort, tightly pursed lips, cold-shoulders, etc. He begins to hide and to try to “tolerate” the discomfort. As he begins to defend himself inwardly from the accusations, he automatically drives a wedge of accusation himself. Then, he is “prompted” by our enemy, the accuser, to dig up a few accusations of his own that have been lurking in the background.


VENOM FROM THE POISONED WEDGES


After the wedges are driven deeply, the angry, bitter words begin to flow. Anything can trigger them off. Wedges beget wounds… and by this time, the marriage or friendship needs spiritual healing from the LORD in order to continue. The fog is so thick, the lies so convincing (“He doesn’t love me anymore; she doesn’t value all I’ve done for her,” etc.) that NO-ONE can find the truth anymore and the family is about to disintegrate.

The accuser and his cohorts of lying spirits have accomplished their goal of destruction. They follow the wedges, as it were, into the home and strengthen their divisive powers. The wedges are impossible to remove.

Impossible? YES. They are impossible to remove because the wedges are not the REAL issue! The wedges are camouflaged lies which work only to destroy the unity in the home or amongst Brethren.

CLOSE DOWN THE SHOP…

So, we Christians must go into our fighting mode, that is, on our knees in the prayer closet. We must shut out even the hysteria in our own hearts and turn away from our own wounds.

The first item of business is to re-focus on the LORD, with worship and thanksgiving, reiterating our dependence upon HIM+ and trust in HIM+ to clear away the fog so that we can see clearly what is REALLY taking place, spiritually. We cannot identify our mortal enemy; we cannot target him. The spiritual fog has caused our ineffectiveness in this spiritual warfare.

The second item of business is repentance. Yes, of the angry bitter words, but most importantly of the angry, bitter thoughts. Those devilish accusations are the root of this sin. Love indeed covers a multitude of sins. If our love for our friend or spouse is not deep enough to cover those things for which we accused him, then a cry of repentance needs to go forth from our hearts to GOD. The Living LORD will hear and cleanse us. HE+ will settle us down.

HOLY POWER TO OBEY HIS WORD

Furthermore, HE+ has given us all power to obey. This is what the HOLY SPIRIT came to do… to give us power to obey, power to turn against our own flesh, not against somebody else’s. If we are to even love our enemies, we must certainly be remiss if we cannot love those who are our faithful spouses or friends.


HOW, THEN, DO WE ACCOMPLISH THIS LOVE?


This love is not a mushy emotional feeling that must be drummed up. This is the love addressed by the Beloved Disciple himself, recorded in I John 5:2,3.

+ + +


By this we know
that we love the children of God,
when we love God,
and keep his commandments.

For this is the love of God,
that we keep his commandments:
and his commandments are not grievous.



+ + +


This is a wonderful Scripture. It takes the burden of TRYING TO WORK UP A LOVING FEELING off of our hearts. This passage in the Word of GOD defines for us how to accomplish love towards one another. It promises that when we do these things, it IS LOVE !

These two simple verses written by the Apostle John tell us to first, love GOD. Secondly, we keep His+ commandments. When we do those two things, we are loving the Brethren, in the eyes of GOD.

HE+ will see to it that, sooner or later, it feels like we are “loving.” HE+ will also see to it that the other person will sense he is being loved purely.

WHAT COMMANDMENTS?

Are these commandments the 10 Commandments? Actually, they would be the Words of CHRIST throughout the Gospels, but mostly His+ instructions in the Sermon on the Mount. The Ten Commandments would be kept just naturally, in the keeping of The LORD’S words which HE+ spoke throughout the Gospels.

Indirectly, His+ commandments would include the words of the Apostles found in the New Testament, inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT. There are many good words of instruction in the Letters showing the humble of heart how to relate to others, such as the monitoring of the tongue.

OUR OWN CHOOSING
... our own responsibility

Now we can begin to search for our primary errors that started the whole situation: What lies did WE CHOOSE TO BELIEVE… to make us ... trick us... to JOIN WITH THE ACCUSER against our spouse / friend ? Yes, in choosing to believe the lies, we were deceived into joining with the accuser to beat up our spouse / friend.


How did WE CHOOSE to deal with those lies the accuser thrust at us? Did we bring them into the Light? Did we take the accusations to The LORD and say, “I AM BEING TORMENTED, LORD, BY SPIRITS WHO WANT ME TO ACCUSE MY SPOUSE (or friend.) LORD JESUS, they are urging me to break Your Word. They are trying to drive a wedge between us, to take us off the battlefield.”


BUT, ARE THE ACCUSATIONS TRUE?

Keep in mind that we do NOT need to “know” if the accusations are true… that is where we went wrong in the first place. Just to CONSIDER some lie of the accuser is setting ourselves up as a target for even more accusations from the enemy. And, they will seem truer and truer!


THE MEASURE OF TRUTH

How can we tell if the "accusation" is a lie, when in the midst of being deceived about it?

We KNOW it is a lie if it makes us go against the Word of GOD.

For instance, are we thinking “whatsoever things are pure” about that person? Are we thinking about him / her “like we would want to be thought about”? That is, are we doing in our minds and hearts TO OTHERS AS WE WOULD WANT THEM TO DO TO US?

What we have CHOSEN to believe as truth (discarding the Scriptures in the process) is where the crucial repentance takes place. As soon as this repentance, carrying the responsibility for our OWN CHOOSING, is effective, the spiritual fog will lift.

WE DON’T STOP THERE!

Then, and ONLY then… when we stop blaming others for our unhappiness… will we, in brokenness of heart for who we are, be able to turn to The LORD for healing of our wretched selves. We may feel miserable for awhile with no-one to blame but ourselves.

Thankfully, HE+ will receive us when we see in truth who we really are. HE+ will wrestle with us until we do see this truth. “It’s me… It’s me… It’s me, O LORD, standing in the need of prayer. Not my brother nor my sister, but it’s me, O LORD…”


A MARVELOUS THING HAPPENS NEXT…

A humble and a contrite heart HE+ will not despise, even though we may despise ourselves. HE+ will be with us in our miserable state. Then… in a short period of time… HE+ will show us the real cause of why we do the things we do. Many, many times it will come as a surprise to us.

We’ve had spiritual fog deceiving us, clouding the true issue of hurt and wounding in our hearts. We’ve eventually dealt with those hurts by wounding others closest to us… never meaning to at all.

Our dear LORD Who+ has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows will HIMSELF+ bring forth the healing of the inner man. We will not have to go looking for it. It will just happen and our release from our perverted ways, our blinded hearts, our skewered perception of things will take place. Tears of relief, tears of joy will come with the tears of release from the crookedness that had pervaded our hearts, all along unbeknownst to us. Yes, unbeknown to us, but they were well known to Our SAVIOR all along. HE+ so graciously covers us with His+ Blood until the time appointed for these things to be rooted out of our hearts and lives. But, this will not happen without obedience first.

Then, our Savior will rise with healing in His+ wings for us personally. With a joy unspeakable and full of glory, we will be able to love others with the love of CHRIST JESUS working in our hearts.


In the name of The FATHER, His Beloved SON, our LORD JESUS CHRIST, and the Blessed HOLY SPIRIT, be power and honor and glory forever. Amen.
