And ALL JERUSALEM Was TROUBLED.... EPIPHANY 2016 ... for the Monastic-At-Heart

Where is HE+  
that is born KING+ of the JEWS ?

Because in the Mystery of the Word+-Made-Flesh, THOU has caused a New Light to shine in our hearts, to give the knowledge of Thy Glory, O HOLY FATHER, in the face of Thy Only-Begotten SON+ JESUS CHRIST,  our LORD. 

+  +  +

Where indeed  is HE+ that is born King+ of the Jews ? 

Shortly after His+ birth, the Gentiles came to seek HIM+. Not only did they seek HIM+, they came to pay homage to a new-born KING+ and to bestow upon HIM+ royal gifts fit for the Ruler+ of the Universe. 

The religious ones, the chief priests of Israel, did not seek HIM+ to pay homage to their LORD.   The scribes and lawyers with them did not seek HIM+ to pay homage to the Living WORD+ of GOD.  The Sanhedrin and ruling council did not seek HIM+... although they all were aware that the time was fulfilled that in Bethlehem of Judea their Messiah was to be born.  

The wretched and cruel civil authorities which were in place in Israel proper did not seek HIM+ in order to pay homage to HIM+ ... although they DID their best to find HIM+ in order to kill HIM+ before His+ Time. 

Where is HE+ 
today ?

Who is seeking 
today ? 

Unfortunately, there is little if any UNCTION on "group-joining" today.  Today, the only REAL unction from the HOLY SPIRIT is on QUIETUDE. Going alone with GOD to learn to hear HIS+ Voice instead of the voice of the group or institution is of utmost priority during these troublous times.   

His+ Voice is saying: "Come Away, My Beloved, and listen to ME+. " 

Distractions come from interaction with others, with the world, with things that are not My+ Will for your life. Those distractions clog your hearing. Come away and listen to ME+; Learn to know MY+ Voice. 

Epiphany means a visible manifestation of a Divine Being, an Appearance.  In the New Testament, it is only used of CHRIST: His+ first coming in 2 Timothy 1:10 ... and His+ Future coming 1 Timothy 6:14. 

11 But thou, O man of GOD, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

13 I give thee charge in the sight of GOD, who quickeneth all things, and before CHRIST JESUS, Who+ before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our LORD JESUS CHRIST:

15 Which in His+ times HE+ shall shew, Who+ is the blessed and only Potentate, the KING+ of kings, and LORD of lords;

16 Who+ only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; Whom+ no man hath seen, nor can see: to Whom+ be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

Where is HE+ 

If HE+ is not the KING+ in  your own personal heart, HE+ is NOT HERE, not for you. You will miss HIM+.

If you are looking to a group or organization to "be" CHRIST for you, HE+ will NOT BE FOUND there. HE+ shares the Throne with no-one.

If you are inconvenienced, resentful, and bored at being still and waiting for His+ Voice, then HE+ will not be speaking to you. 

if you SEEK HIM+ 
with all of your heart, 
HE+ will be found !

HE+ wills HIMSELF+ to be found by those who pay the price to SEPARATE themselves from their party and go their separate way to FIND HIM+.  

Once HE+ is found by you, HE+ will direct your path. HE+ will speak to you and your delight will truly be found in HIM+. 

Yes, ALL JERUSALEM was troubled. It should be. The time of His+ Appearing was ignored or hated by them, the very ones HE+ came to invite to the Marriage Supper of The LAMB+.   HE+ came unto His+ own, but His+ own received HIM+ not. 

In our day, ALL THE EARTH is troubled. It should be. The time of His+ Appearing is being ignored or hated by the inhabitors of the earth, the very ones HE+ came to invite unto the Marriage Supper of The LAMB+.  

They were not His+ own, but HE+ opened the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers when HE+ overcame the sharpness of death. What more could HE+ do other than DIE... the RIGHTEOUS LAMB+ of GOD , for the unrighteous sons of Adam.  

All are invited. 

The Invitatory: 

Come unto ME+ , 
all ye that labor and are heavy laden, 
and I+ will give you rest.  

Take My+ yoke upon you 
and learn of ME+. 

For I+ am meek and lowly of heart,
 and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  

For My+ yoke is easy 
and My+ burden is Light.
