NOW WE SPEAK
we were young, there were many things we hoped for.
We wished for things we could imagine even before we understood them
properly. We took for granted those things we had, hoping that they would never leave, but not taking good care of them as
we enjoyed them with utter non-concern that they would never leave.
as we look back on those fleeting moments in time, we can see the disregard for what we were never sure was permanent, although
we never gave thought that one day things would change and we would long for some of those to return.
we are on the alert for what we know is coming from listening to Scripture, and finding that every Word is truth in our hearing
and we should have given attention to those weightier things called The Word Of YHVH. Studying
for these moments was not a thought because we were engulfed in our own little world of understanding from man's point of
view, and we rarely took heed to the instructions we read daily like, You will find Me if you search for Me with all of your heart, and all of your mind, and all of your strength, and everything within your will. Trouble
with those Words were, we had no idea what they meant in total; we just thought that giving what we could at the time meant
all the difference, and that is all that mattered.
of us have taken direct heed to those
Words in a more fulfilling way.
We could not understand them until every vestige of what we held dear was either taken from us,
or we finally gave them over to our Creator in a meaningful and direct way, thereby forfeiting life itself for the purpose
Abba YHVH - Daddy had intended our
lives to continue in. The surprises we found were many. We gave even our every breath and every lustful desire,
and every purpose we had accepted for ourselves in the past, knowing that there was a greater reward to follow, but not understand
that these rewards to follow would find themselves in our midst even before we entered the Next Life. Expecting rewards
few, some not even expecting any reward but the most gracious gift in Scripture, "I AM THY EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD," Settling on that as the only desired reward expected, and not even sure how close that would place us in proximity
with Abba Daddy, we were satisfied perhaps just to be in the choir, to sing praises to Him for the balance of eternity, and
that would have been good enough. Today, as we begin to receive gifts innumerable, one at a time, wondering why, since
we expected not those things, we find ourselves in another form of awesome wonder and praise for the ONE who would be found
to be even closer than a brother. So close that we could touch Him in spirit and hear Him even Word for Word.
close that there would be nothing between He and us, for He would walk with us and be our guide, if only we could bear the
burden of Love and fellowship with Him, without feeling distant and unworthy, for He would take those feelings away from us
and make for us a comfort zone in His presence we could call His Lap. Surrounded by His loving arms, the breath of life
that came from Him would fill us whether we could feel it at any particular time, or sense it either.
Take Heed to those presents wrapped in Love from the ONE whom you would love to be at the foot of,
and see within yourself the wonderful things HE has prepared for you even before you enter the Heavenlies, that you be well
informed of the true meaning of the prophecies that foretell that, 'Gifts To Men,' were in the offering.
Too many of us
lust for financial gifts that can rust and rot away and be forgotten or distant in memory soon after receiving as we then
lust for more. Lust is lust and never satisfied, but the gifts He gives while
we are still alive in the flesh are so much more than financial, that until we receive them we are just unaware of a caring
Daddy as gracious as He.
Now we come to the even weightier message on giving and receiving.
Personal gifts that feed the
soul will never retire from our life 'Here and There'
as we live through these moments until heaven opens for us The Door to Eternal Life
with Him. What we receive are the gifts He wanted to give us from the beginning, all we had
to do is wait for them and follow Him to that point in time and place. Being in the wrong place and time have robed
may of what would have been a just reward in following, instead they have the just un-reward for rebelling. What must
a person do to gain the rewards of eternal life after physical life, are the same as receiving the just rewards given even
before that final call to be there with Him. Following is the most gracious praise we
can offer to Him, and when it also contains our very life, it is a complete Living
Sacrifice. Would not the return in the form of rewards be just as complete? O' how wonderful are the Words that
Abba speaks. All we have to do is with wonderful
reverence, participate, and the beginning of reverence is His Name. By this we know we are following Him properly, because
when we use His Name, and have gone the extra mile to be certain of it, we have fulfilled the most important instruction in
His Word, Have no strange Elohim in My Face. We really
get what we pray for, and expect what we ask for, as it is according to scripture, we will receive them.
Discussing what gifts each one of us receive is fruitful only to ourselves, and should only be discussed
with the Giver. He knows, and will tell us the whys and wherefores that we were worthy to receive them. If we
receive not, it is within scripture to understand. Caveat, a selfish heart will never receive the wonderful gifts from
Abba YHVH, for desiring to devour them in ones lust is not the purpose
we receive from Him. He gives not because we gave to others, but because we gave to Him, and examine for ourselves what
gifts we could possibly give to Him who sustains everything in the universe with the power of His Word? What gifts could
each of us possibly have that is of value to Him? If you are thinking things or money, you could not begin to
understand what He desires of you. If one is not in tune with Him, that one will never understand His mind, so there
could never be an interpersonal relationship enough to even begin to understand, and if one is chasing after false elohim,
that one will have his reward, for our Creator stands ready to give whatever is a just reward. This is not difficult
to understand for those who follow Him. But to those
chasing rainbows - so to speak - it will elude them to death.
now on, there will be no witness to whatever is happening within our respective lives physically or spiritually except Abba YHVH-Daddy. His is the
only witness we need to expect anything from Him, for His witness is a wholesome and perfect witness and is based upon 'His Calling' to each of us. We either followed, or we went in another direction,
and that direction was a free choice, for none will be dragged into His presence, even on Judgment Day, and that Day is independent
for each of us, we judge ourselves by each decision we have made or will make, and these decisions are eternal. No one
will rob anyone of his reward. What he strove for, worked for, desired, followed after and chose, were/are his own to
live with eternally. Enough said!
end of it all will close with our choices. No one but ourselves are making these for us, for the decision was manifest
in our spirit long before they were conceived in our flesh. We knew the risk and the reward, and we made the choice.
