Fellow Christian Bloggers

I am in my quiet time with The Lord this morning and about to read His Word.  I have never posted this early, but God put on my mind to set a day and time each week to gather in prayer for one another.  It can be for just a moment or however long you’d like.  We all have different schedules and demands of our time, and we are in different time zones, so we may not be together at the same moment, but since God is outside of time, He will gather us! ~ I was thinking of all of you and the beautiful posts I’ve read for God’s Kingdom Purpose here on earth from each of you.  I was thinking of what a wonderful ministry this is to both the saved and the lost.  I was thinking of how powerful prayer is, and God’s command to spur each other on- we are Family!  How wonderful it will be to be with all of you in Spirit each week!  I can visualize our bloggers together- our special part of the Body of Christ- giving praise and thanks to God and asking for His Wisdom and Guidance in our writing.   After all, it is for His Glory!  Let us pray encouragement for one another, clarity, discipline, whatever you feel led to pray for.  Since it’s about 6:00 AM EST now, I’ll assign this time every Thursday morning for us to gather.  I pray you will accept this invitation- I so look forward to being together with you in prayer before our Wonderful Father in heaven!!!  With love in Christ, Nancy

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  I thank my God every time I remember you.  In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me. God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.  And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.” – Phil 1:2-9

Drawing the Blind

imageFor the past few days, God has been peeking through my mind with thoughts about blindness and sight.  Helen Keller has been a part of those thoughts- in fact, one day I was led to research some of her famous quotes, and the very next day my 5th- grade son brought home instructions for a report he had to do- it was on Helen Keller.  I found myself watching video clips about the infamous deaf-blind woman who defied her prognosis and accomplished the unimaginable– clips of her in adult years demonstrating how she learned to speak by putting fingers on teacher Anne Sullivan’s lips and larynx, “The Miracle Worker” fight scene where young Helen runs and rages, spitting food out, throwing silverware, rebelling against her teacher’s attempts to get her to eat properly, and the famous revelation scene where all the years of Helen’s frustrated uncontrollable fury comes to a dead halt at the well.  Take a few minutes to watch this first scene:

image

http://youtu.be/Dvq5aQr1eh0

“If you don’t correct your children, you don’t love them. If you love them, you will be quick to discipline them.” – Prov 13:24 (ERV)
Can you see the relentless love of the teacher in this harrowing scene?  Can you see how desperately she desires to help her young student?  Watching Helen run aimlessly, raging against instruction, fighting to break free from her dark prison, immediately reminded me of my own 29-year self-imposed prison- the difference being I could see.  At least I thought I could- I did have physical sight.  As it turns out,  for almost three decades I walked in darkness.  Aimlessly, I was throwing myself in every direction, following feelings instead of Wisdom, listening to voices I did not recognize, hoping for a light in the darkness, but stumbling over my very own feet.  At that point, according to Helen Keller, I was worse off than her:
“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but has no vision.” – H.Keller 
Watching Ms. Sullivan fighting right along with Helen, insisting that she follow directions and obey, never giving up on her or allowing her to give up on herself, reminded me of God and His Relentless Love for us.  In the Old Testament, the Israelites continually rebelled against God despite His provision for them.  They ran aimlessly after idols, though God was leading them.  They complained, grumbled and fought back while God instructed them.  God, however, never gave up on them- He continued to pursue them in His Infinite Love.
“the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.” – Prov 3:12b (NIV) 
Though for years I personally disregarded God and His instruction, running aimlessly after my own worldly desires, God continued to pursue me- He never gave up on me!  Then came my moment at the Well.  Please watch the following scene:

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” – H.Keller

Is it possible that the things we can see with our eyes are actually distractions to the most important things for us to visualize… things like love, hope, peace, joy, even wisdom and truth?  Helen Keller’s enlightenment at the Well could not have been more dramatic if her physical sight had been restored.  In those moments, her eyes were opened to knowledge, understanding, and so much more.  She saw things even people with sight are blind to.  Seeing eyes can deceive, as things rarely are as they appear- there is always much more going on that we cannot see than what we can see.  In those moments, Helen gained sight for the most important things in life- things that perhaps can only be clearly seen with our eyes closed.
As I watched the scene, I was reminded of my own “Well moment” when Christ gave me Living Water from the Well of Life, and my blind eyes were opened to Truth for the very first time.*
[Jesus said to the woman at the well,] “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”   – John 4:13-14
“The Lord gives sight to the blind…” – Psalm 146:8a
Helen Keller said, “Once I knew only darkness… but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.”……..
I- Nancy- say, “Once I knew only darkness, but one Word from The Lord fell upon my heart that clutched at emptiness, and I leaped to the rapture of life with Christ!”
In the time it takes to speak a word, God’s Light broke through my darkness.  “I was blind, but now I see!” (John 9:25b).  I think this is why when I meet with my Lord each day, I find myself  “darkening” my surroundings- turning out the lights, drawing the blind, closing my eyes.  He came to me in my personal darkness and I yearn to see His Light again and again!
image“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”  – Psalm 119:105
“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” – Col 1:15
 
“…know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”  – Col 2:2b-3
 
THINGS TO COME FOR THE BELIEVER——
image“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” – 1 Cor 13:12

It is said that when a person loses one of their senses, the others are heightened…. the person with no physical sight then hears more clearly, smells are more vivid, tastes are heightened, textures come alive.  It would almost seem they become a “super” human of sorts.  They would surely seem to have the “advantage” spiritually, since the spiritual realm is unseen by the naked eye.  What I see with my mortal eyes in this short life on earth is but a shadow of things to come.  Everything in Heaven shall be clearer, more vivid, indescribably more wonderful to behold!**  Our senses will be heightened- like the blind person- only infinitely moreso!  Our wisdom and knowledge will soar as we step into God’s Glorious Presence in Heaven- our eyes will see as they have never seen before- and our Joy shall last forever!!!

image

“But only the redeemed will walk there, and those the Lord has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”  – Isa 35:9b-10
“…there will be heard once more the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings to the house of the Lord, saying, ‘Give thanks to the Lord Almighty, for the Lord is good; his love endures forever.’”  – Jer 33:10b-11a

All I Have Is Yours

imageAs I consider more about Eternity, I must immediately acknowledge that the State of Eternity is the State of God.  It might be easy to think that God appeared on the invisible intangible line of Eternity, but that would place even the concept of eternal “time” outside of God’s Domain.  Has anything come before Him?  Is anything outside of His Domain? God was not created.  God always was, is, and always will be– from everlasting to everlasting.  Eternity is God’s Condition– God is Eternal.  Thus, when God grants Eternal Life, He is granting His Own State of Being, that we might share in all of Him- the One Who created all things (Isa 44:24b, John 1:1-3, 17:20-23, 1 Cor 13:12, Col 1:15-17).
Thirsting for the first mentions of God as eternal in the Bible, I went to the Orthodox Jewish Bible, which is an English language version that applies Hebrew cultural expressions to the Messianic Bible.  I have highlighted in bold some of the places I found where the term, “eternity,” or “eternal” appears in the Hebrew.  Take your time, and savor the beautiful Verses below:
For unto us a yeled (child) is born, unto us ben (son) is given; and the misrah (dominion) shall be upon his shoulder; and Shmo (his name) shall be called Peleh (Wonderful), Yoetz (Counsellor), El Gibbor (Mighty G-d), Avi Ad (Possessor of Eternity)*, Sar Shalom (Prince of Peace).  – Yeshaya (Isaiah) 9:6
 
But Yisroel (Israel) shall be saved in Hashem (YHWH) with a Teshuat Olamim (an everlasting salvation); ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded ad olemei ad (for all eternity). – Yeshaya (Isaiah) 45:17
 
But thou, Beit-lechem (Bethlehem) Ephratah, though thou be little among the Alphei Yehudah (Thousands of Judah), yet out of thee shall He [(Messiah)] come forth unto Me [Hashem] that is to be Moshel Yisroel (ruler in Israel); whose goings forth (i.e. origins) have been mikedem, (from everlasting; see Chabakuk 1:12), mimei olam (from the days of eternity).  – Michoh (Micah) 5:2
 
I was set up [to reign] me’olam (from eternity), from the beginning, or ever eretz (the earth) was. – Mishle (Proverbs) 8:23
——- and from the Authorized King James Version of the Bible for the New Testament (original translation from Greek-Tyndale Press):
And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness (use the wealth of this life); that, when ye fail (earthly possessions gone), they may receive you into everlasting habitations (an eternal home). – Luke 16:9

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. – John 3:16

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they [men] are without excuse. – Romans 1:20

who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power. – 2 Thes 1:9

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. – 1 Pet 5:10

in hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began (days of eternity).  –  Titus 1:2

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
We see clearly from first writings of the Old Testament that God is Eternal- forever was, is and forever will be.  We see all the more clearly from early writings of the New Testament that God desires to give this Eternal Life to US- His creations! —
 
Consider the passionate prayer of Jesus to His Father on our behalf-
All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. – John 17:10a
My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.  – John 17:20-23
 
And Paul’s words to Believers in Christ-
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.  – 1 Cor 13:12
 
At Present, we have a fleeting mortal life, however God gives us the KEY to Eternity– which we can have at ANY TIME!!  Please read the following excerpt* from John J. Parsons, an author and Messianic Jew who gives a most beautiful description of how God brings Eternal Life to mankind.— (Please forgive my formatting!)
The ideas about Olam Hazeh and Olam Habah are cosmic and metaphysical – they pertain to the universe outside of ourselves in terms of the LORD’s overarching goal and plan for His creation. From the point of view of the human soul, these are experienced as Chayei Sha’a(fleeting life) and Chayei Olam (eternal life), respectively.
  1. Chayei Sha’ah — Fleeting life; life in this world (Olam Hazeh). This mode of life is absorbed in this world and its physical and social structures: working, eating, pursuing pleasures, etc. Chayei Sha’ah is the life of “vanity of vanities” and is a vapor that soon dissipates in the winds of time. It is sometimes called Olam HaSheker (עוֹלָם הַשֶּׁקֶר), “the false world.”
  2. Chayei Olam — Eternal life; life in the world to come (Olam Habah).
Yeshua and Eternal Life
The Brit Chadashah identifies Chayei Olam as the knowledge of the one true God who sent Yeshua into the world as the Mashiach:

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (John 17:3)

umah chayei olam asher yed’u otkha ki attah l’vadkha
el emet v’et Yeshua Hamashiach asher shalachta.

Chayei Olam, eternal life, is a conscious relationship with God through Yeshua the Messiah. Since God inhabits eternity, this means living in the mode of life that apprehends (by faith) the reality of the eternal in the here and now. In other words, faith sees the Olam Habah and prepares us to partake of its reality even in the Olam Hazeh.But practically speaking, how do we experience Chayei Olam? How do we come to “know the only true God” and the one He sent, namely, Yeshua the Messiah?Ultimately this relationship is created by the Yeshua Himself, for the glory of God. Consider the context of the foregoing verse of scripture:These words spoke Yeshua, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify your Son, that your Son also may glorify thee: As you have given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him.And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah, whom you have sent. (John 17:1-3, KJV)
Chayei Olam is a gift of revelation — from the Messiah directly to you — that ultimately derives from the will of the Father to be chosen as one who will know the truth of God’s love and redemption. This is summarized by the famous verse found in John 3:16:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

ki-khen ohev elohim et-ha’olam ad-asher
natan ba’ado et-b’no et yechido v’khol hama’amin
bo lo-yovad ki vo yimtsa chayei olam.

In other words, eternal life is the Person of Yeshua the Mashiach — He is the Source of all life and is the One who alone bestows redemptive life to chosen individuals. He is the Initiator of the relationship that heals us, for if He should choose to keep Himself hidden, how would He be disclosed? [END of Reproduction/See copyright* information at bottom]

Present Eternity

imageI am fearful to write this article.  Fearful because God gave me many thoughts at once this morning, and they all have to do with time and eternity.  The subject is too big for me, for both what I am able to comprehend and write.  My very last post touched on this subject… why am I hearing more now?  I don’t know, but I do know the thought crossed my mind this morning that I need to turn my plans over to God each day, and not keep asking Him to sign off on mine.
 
What do I do with this, Lord?  This is a first… that I have heard clearly from You, yet not known what to do.  I feel you’ve given me the pieces, but I have no idea how to put this together.  I recall immediately, John 3:30: “He must become greater; I must become less.”  I am less, Lord.  Write.
 
The Present is all that we have.  It is immediately connected to Eternity.  The Present is the Only Time of Value.  But Wait!, you say- history holds great value and so will the future, for posterity’s sake!  Listen closely- the Past only has value because it once was the Present- which granted it the right to become the Past.  The Future only has value if it becomes the Present- if it does not, it is only a thought, not a reality (keep that in mind as you make Present decisions!).
Picture a timeline of 3 doors.  The Present is the Door through which we see Eternity.  The Door of the Past is closed and locked on millions upon millions of Present moments gone by.  The Door of the Future might not ever be opened.
Do you see how invaluable the Present is?… How ETERNAL the Present is?  There is no Time in Eternity as we know it here in our finite earthly lives.  Earthly time consists of past+Present+future earthly moments.  Human history had a start point (Adam and Eve) and it will have an end point (End Times).  Eternity, however, consists of Entirely Present Moments!  No beginning (past), no end (future).  That is why our Earthly Present so closely resembles Eternity.  As C.S. Lewis said, “…the Present is all lit up with eternal rays.”
Here is my hand-sketch of how I see our Present in relationship with Eternity (3 doors above).  Sorry, it’s crude.:
image
And here is why we humans even think at all about life beyond this finite earthly experience:
“He [God]… has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds, yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.”  -Ecc 3:11b AMP
Wow!  I consider Eternity because God planted that desire in me as His special creation!  God reminds me that I existed in His Infinite Mind long before I physically came to be, in the Words of the psalmist~
 
“My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.   
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.”    -Psa 139:15-16
…and in Paul speaking to followers of Christ Jesus at Ephesus~
“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.  In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.”  -Eph 1:4-6
Now, as I ponder the state of no beginning and no end, knowing I am created as an Eternal being, I am hit with the realization that I am living Eternity AT PRESENT!!!   Does this make sense to you?  Is your mind blown like mine?!!
Believe me, folks, I am becoming aware of things as I type- I spoke of my fear and apprehension upfront and not knowing where God was taking me… or those brave enough to come along! 🙂
I believe this is a perfect place to segue to my previous article, “Today Salvation is Yours!”  So- Go there!  Read!!  Know that you are walking in Eternity at Present, and NOW is the Time to call on the Name of The Lord and be saved from an unspeakably horrible Eternity without Him!  Christ saved you from Eternal torment for a Reason- to dwell with Him Forever in Eternal Joy!  It is YOUR choice, but don’t wait to make it… Tomorrow is an uncertainty, Eternity is NOW!
 
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord [Jesus] will be saved”   -Acts 2:21, Rom 10:13
 
“Salvation is found in no one else [Jesus], for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”   -Acts 4:12
 
“I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.”   -2 Cor 6:2b
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”   -John 3:16
God bless you!!!

Today Salvation is Yours!

image

You are reading this right now because God Almighty has blessed you with these very moments of life.  He knows exactly when you will depart from earth.  He knows exactly what you will choose to do with this day, He knows if you have the rest of it, He knows if you have tomorrow.  It is easy to assume that we have the rest of today, even tomorrow- after all, we woke up this morning and we have every morning for how many years now.  But yesterday does not promise tomorrow, or even the rest of today.

Does this put a new value on the PRESENT for you?

When I consider all of the amazing accomplishments of mankind through history, I remain astounded that there are still people who believe this life on earth is all that there is.  We know that Death comes to every man, regardless of his accomplishments.  So why even try if there is no Hereafter?  To make things better for the next generation who will also perish?  Everything so that we may follow each other into the pit?

The truth is- there is an Eternal Value for everything that happens on earth, for the God of Eternity created everything and by Him all things are held together (Col 1:17) and have their Purpose (Eph 1:11).  Though our mortal bodies stand for a limited time, our spirits move and live forever, praise be to God!  Listen to the Words of Jesus:

“The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.”  -John 6:63

God has made it clear what lasts forever~

“All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field.                                   The grass withers and the flowers fall,
because the breath of the Lord blows on them.
Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God stands forever.”  –
Isa 40:6b-8

As Jesus said~

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”  -Matthew 24:35

Is there any doubt that TODAY is the Day for you to come to know God?  The Past is gone, and Tomorrow is not guaranteed to you.  Do you see the Value of This Day of life for you?- the Eternal Value of your Present breathing moments?

“I tell you, NOW is the time of God’s favor, NOW is the day of salvation.”  -2 Cor 6:2b

“The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.”   -Rom 13:11b

Former atheist, Christian C.S. Lewis in “The Screwtape Letters,” said~

“The Future is, of all things, the thing least like eternity. It is the most temporal part of time–for the Past is frozen and no longer flows, and the Present is all lit up with eternal rays.”  

“Lit up with eternal rays”?…

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  -John 8:12

“The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
And everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord [Jesus] will be saved.’”  Acts 2:20-21

NOW-

Today, if only you would hear his voice, ‘Do not harden your hearts…'”  -Psalm 95:7b-8

Do you hear God’s Voice?  Do not harden your heart!… TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION!  NOW is the ONLY TIME you are guaranteed!   If you do not know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, speak with Him NOW!  Confess your sins and need for His forgiveness, thank Him for shedding His blood on the Cross to pay the penalty for your sins, and PRAISE GOD for your guaranteed Eternity with Him!  Open God’s Word- full of the Spirit and Life which lasts forever- and READ IT!   You have come into The Light- God’s Rays of Salvation shine upon you!
I rejoice in our fellowship in Christ!  Allow me to share my personal testimony with you, found under, “The Question That Changed My Life Forever.”  May God bless you as you walk in His Saving Grace!  Love, Nancy

(Note: 2 Cor 6:2b CAPS mine).
