THE BRIDGE Audio on Soundcloud
In music, especially western pop music, a bridge is typically a contrasting section, juxtapose the verses and chorus. Typically the bridge of a song will carry an altered rhythm, a tempo shift, a melodic variance, a lyrical sidelight that offers a change in focus or brings reflection. If done well, it could give a sense of pause or rest to the listener or even draw one to subtly pine or hunger for the return of the chorus, “I live off of His intercession in repentance”
So, using these defining words, what is it that would offer contrast in melody, rhythm, tempo or offer a lyrical sidelight to the chorus of this song, this Journey He has been composing through me? That my friend has been a matter of deep repentance, as I have been listening and waiting on The Bridge for His leading word.
So, while we are waiting, let’s do a little review and bolster the essence of His question that created the verses and chorus. “What am I doing right now”?
Let’s look at His assurance to me that I did not know the answer to His question, because He wasn’t looking for a biblical response. He wasn’t interested in my knowledge of the scriptures. I know to some that could almost be considered blaspheme and you are considering checking out right here. But understand this, in freedom, the fundamental note of His question was not seeking my head knowledge at all, but a genesis, a draw of hunger in my soul to listen for the deep mystery of His voice and His voice only as the treasure of my heart.
These words being spoken right now, this intercession proceeding from the mouth of God, are the living waters that cleanse, heal and empower us to do the will of God. There isn’t anything else.
Our knowledge isn’t the power to follow God, it is His Spirit.
Through the persistent flow of these words, He’ s revealed the deep mystery of His bond to us all and guided me to the chorus of understanding that, “I live off of His intercession in repentance”.
His intercession is the unsought and I emphasize, unsought guidance for the souls of mankind that runs far deeper than His simple question would portend. And therefore runs far deeper than what one could know in the mind. Transcending knowledge.
As stated before, in time I gave Him the answer to His question, You are interceding. But I could not solve the mystery of the word He was speaking without asking and seeking His revelation on it, like a child. It is this word being spoken that animates the heart of Matt 7:7 and the admonition of Jesus for us to seek, ask and knock for the understanding. Because despite all the head knowledge flying about in the circles of belief, ears to hear are the rarest of commodities due to our busyness, our hunger and thirst for other things. On the whole, we are preoccupied with everything but the leading of His voice. This fruit is evident.
As an example of His intercession offered since creation, Adam, the breathing dust He formed and placed in the garden of Eden was given the guidance of the Living Word spoken. God’s first act of love was to offer His voice, unsought. He spoke to Adam to lead him and He has continually offered His voice first, to all of humanity so whosoever could come, with, after and behind Him, to ponder, consider, heed and understand, the beauty in what He is saying. The chorus explained in other words is: Repentance was designed by God from the beginning as the natural follow on to His voice of intercession freely offered as our leading.
This repentance has always been the attached desire in God’s voice speaking, to bring man into Himself, to share in the love of the unity they dwell in, Father, Son and Spirit. This is why the first words of Jesus in His service to mankind were to “repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand”. He was making the call, bringing to remembrance, the Father’s original intent in the creation of man, a being made alive in following every word that proceeded from the mouth of God.
Some of the last words Jesus spoke in the garden of Gethsemane were for us to be one as He was one with the Father. These two, the voice of God speaking and the response of the heart of humanity in repentance is the only way we will ever enter into His unity. It is provided by Him, for His glory, out of His love for us.
Clear and incontrovertible proclamation has been offered for what constitutes these two verses and chorus. That everything about God, is born of God, through revelation by God. That is, we don’t find God and have never found God or known Him on our own. I think this was previously dubbed a ponder stop, but if not, you should consider it anyway.
As Romans 3 describes, No one seeks God, but He reveals Himself by the Holy Spirit, vehicle of delivery or state of the vessel notwithstanding. In that, all credit for that revelation and understanding belongs to Him, outside of any earthy entity, yourself included. I believe the peace of God that transcends all understanding lives right there and should be cultivated.
In His voice, unsought, offered in freedom for freedom, there is a predetermined call and pregnant expectation of repentance imbued. His words spoken to the heart, like nectar in a flower for a bee or the smell of something wonderful baking in the oven, seek to draw souls to embrace the with, after and behind heart attitude He desires. A heart that ponders, considers, and heeds the Living Word to the fruition of understanding and complete rest in Him.
Following His voice of intercession in repentance is the easy yoke Jesus called us to. This may cook the doctrinal noodle of many, because they have imbibed erroneous definitions of intercession and repentance, but Jesus Christ walked in repentance. He set the example of the Way, the Truth and the Life for us, the breathing dust He was beaconing. Yes, Jesus Christ walked in repentance, listening for the intercession, the Living Word of His Father through the Holy Spirit and followed with, after and behind what He was shown and taught. Look it up, it’s in the book to ponder.
He modeled the chorus of this song that has been revealed to me and lived off of every word that proceeded from the mouth of God, in repentance. This is yet more proof that the current dictionary and religious cultural definition of repentance is wrong. Because Jesus didn’t feel badly about himself and had no need to show guilt or remorse for past sins. His call to, “Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand” was the call to enjoin with Him in what he was already doing, listening for the voice of His Father and doing exactly what His Father commanded and was doing. HUGE Ponder Stop right here!!
As stated in prior missives, This is IMMENSE! And it towers over what the current Western paradigm of belief acknowledges or extols as fellowship in Christ and Godliness.
Jesus lived off of every word that proceeded from the mouth of God and that is the unity He spoke of having with the Father and invited us to share in. The Father in Him in word and deed and Jesus responding to Him in word and deed. Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. I am in the Father and the Father is in me. John 14:10-11
This is the example. This is the model. This is Jesus demonstrating how the easy yoke is done. Overtly stating it is the word of the Father in Him that He is speaking not His own words. That is the unity they shared and we are called to enjoin. They are the words of life. Apart from me you can do nothing, Jesus said in John 15:5
He offered the insight that it is His intercession, the Living Word of God that is your life, not what you believe, not what you think you know or have been told. His intercession is the open invitation through the Holy Spirit to follow in them, listening for the words of life they freely offer and following on without guilt, shame or condemnation. The essence of living off of His intercession in repentance.
Is it any wonder that the adversary and his TOTKOGAE followers have perverted and distorted the definition of the word repentance to produce a dreadful bitter taste in the mouth?
OK? Sooooo, enough review. What’s the Bridge? What’s that melodic variance, that shift of rhythm, tempo or lyric that offers a sidelight to the verses and chorus, “I live off of His intercession in repentance”?
Having had some time to listen for His leading and seek Him out for the understanding of what He is saying on The Bridge, I believe He has obtained my heart and hit the mark with the javelin of His purpose and it follows the pattern of what a Bridge traditionally offers.
This Bridge could very well be a bitter “Red Pill” to swallow for some, and it may be a Bridge too far for others. The essence of this tempo shift, melodic variance and lyrical sidelight poses scary propositions for those who say they believe, but consume and serve up to others the fruit of the wrong tree, the TOTKOGAE fruit of death.
So to ease the edge of the words you are going to hear lets change the mood, a bit of break into a smooth shuffle feel for the first 8 bars of this Bridge.
The exact opposite of His question, “What am I doing right now?” and the ensuing revelation that “I live off of His intercession in repentance” is this statement and present word of warning and exhortation I believe I am to pass on. It is inspired and formed out of John 8:31-59, where Jesus was talking to some Jews who had believed Him.
“Most of this people, who say they are My people, have no idea that I am speaking right now, nor that they need to be actively listening for My voice and my voice only.
For IT is the word of life.
Judgement is already upon those who pass on the doctrines and traditions of men as adequacy for service to Me rather than My repetitious scriptural admonition for an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying right now.
The scriptures are replete with the questions I asked of those around me, who lived by and answered me out of their traditions and the tree of the the knowledge of good and evil. Like them, this people is carnal and they lean upon their own understanding of what is good and what is evil. Their trust is in this knowledge and their traditions. Traditions that seek to divide Me and the call of My Father. They abhor My call to unity because it gets in the way of their pride in what they think they know about the scriptures, their knowledge of good and evil.
He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”
If we are not listening for the Living Word of God can we belong to God?” Jesus is saying no. Is Jesus interested in what we say we believe or whether we follow what the Father, and surely all three are saying in perfect unity? In the end when the seals are broken and the Lamb’s book of life is read, we will hear every word of life that proceeded from the mouth of God. I wonder what it will be like for those who did not listen for His voice, but instead followed the traditions of men in their doctrines of death. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. So, if you never actively listened, with intent to follow, will He say to you in that day, depart from me, I never knew you?
We live in the midst of a huge, rotting pile of decayed fruit born of the TOTKOGAE, the fruit and residue of the tree of the the knowledge of good and evil in humanity. It’s everywhere and it is passed off as godliness and life. It divides belief into degrees of righteousness and uses scripture as a wedge to promote denominationalism, divisions in Christ that are unreconcilable to Christ. This fruit of death causes the formulation and entrenchment of condemnation, unforgiveness and judgment in the human heart and is the inhibitor and obstruction to the living waters of His intercession. It is C.U.J. (k-oŏ-əj) in God’s Gap. And as I was led to see and share, it is death in the day anyone eats of it.
The Jews in John 8 who believed in Jesus, were all about what they thought they knew about God, thinking they could arbitrate God for man. Believing they knew what is good and evil, but not hearing or receiving the Living Word of Jesus being spoken to them right there. Jesus told them they did not even belong to God. Moreover, they were of their father the devil, seeking to do what he desires. They followed his enticement to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the TOTKOGAE and their fruit was pronounced dead in the day they did!
These Jews “believed” in Him, what was Jesus doing telling them they were of their father the devil? They believed, isn’t that what Jesus is after? Believers? The short answer is… NO.
Jesus wasn’t interested in their beliefs nor their opinions of Him. He was making a distinction that is also germane to our generation, but has seemingly been lost on much of the modern administration of belief as well.
He showed them that their circle of “belief” was not born of the Living Word of truth, the tree of life. Contrary to His Word, their belief was born of the TOTKOGAE, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. His point was they were more concerned with being right than hearing and following with, after or behind the Living Word spoken. They were people running around seeking to be factually correct and thereby missing out on His word of truth and life. Jesus was driving at the understanding that life is in this word spoken with a need to be listening for what is said. They believed and trusted in their held traditions that reflected power unto themselves for anything in God. Oxymoronic, but an all too familiar serpent inspired endeavor.
The TOTKOGAE is the driving force of this world as it was for those Jesus was speaking to in John Chapter 8. It was their primary point of reference for belief, not the Living Word. As the Spirit led me to state in TWO TREES TWICE, more people in the circle of belief eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil than the tree of life. We can see that closed loop of mind and spirit, the TOTKOGAE created in them. A form of godliness, in thinking they had the ability to wield the knowledge of good and evil, therefore reinforcing the lie of the serpent that we have become like God in “knowing”. To which Jesus pointed out, they were not even of God, but of their father the devil, who also thinks he “knows”.
This may be hard to hear, but it is true. Because not all who say they believe are truly, actively, listening for the voice of the Holy Spirit that leads us to life and freedom; we end up with seemingly factually correct individuals, that are spiritually dead, making judgments, calling the shots and seeking adherents. Just like those Jesus was speaking with. They had read the book of the law, they knew their traditions and from that TOTKOGAE understanding ultimately expelled it’s fruit of death on Jesus. Even proclaiming Him to be demon possessed. They did not hear the word of life being spoken to them, the fruit of the tree of life that sets us free.
He said to them, “Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word.” Like a subtle numbing agent, the TOTKOGAE produces condemnation, unforgiveness and judgement in our hearts… Death. It reinforces and exalts carnal adherence to our knowledge of good and evil that must exact judgment or C.U.J. in direct resistance to His voice that promotes forgiveness, freedom and life!
They knew the scriptures, their traditions and doctrines, but were assuredly deaf to the Living Word of God. As Jesus stood amongst them conversing it was almost like He was saying to them, “What am I doing right now?” Hmmm?
Their adherence to their rationalizations born of the TOTKOGAE kept them from hearing His word and the life and freedom in it. They believed they carried in themselves the approved form of godliness and they completely missed the Living Word of God being spoken to them.
Today, the same knee jerk responses spring from many hearts in the circle of belief, just like the John 8 folks. So much so that if this statement was made:
“If you are not listening for the voice of God you can not be following God no matter what you say you believe.”
The spirit of the TOTKOGAE would erupt with attacking rationalizations and scriptural apologia, bent toward self justification. Numbing the spirit of the hearer, restricting the freshness in the Living Word He is speaking right now and longs for us to embrace. And in all of that, the statement could never be refuted because it’s the truth.
We have now come to the essence of the Bridge of this song. The Holy Spirit is THE most important asset the bride has in this earth and is always speaking to us, seeking to instigate hunger and thirst in us to follow with after and behind Him in Christ. I was granted a beautiful opportunity just like the John 8 gang to hear the question, “What am I doing right now”? An open invitation to follow on in the fascination and mystery of His voice. But the real question this Bridge brings to the table is, “Are you listening for the voice of the living God at all?” “Are you following the voice of men or the voice of God?”
Bluntly, there are far to many who say they believe, who can tell you what’s in the book or what their denominational doctrine is, but have no idea what He said this morning, because they are not listening for His voice and His voice only.
In John 8:27 Jesus said “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He and that I do nothing on My own but speak just what the Father has taught me”. “…so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.” John 14:30
Please, stop right here and ponder this!
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is saying that if you are not listening for the Father as he did, you are not following the Father. You are not ONE with them. John 17. He doesn’t care what you think you know or what you say you believe, if you are not actively listening as if to follow you’re not His. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27
Jesus set the example, living off of every word that proceeded from the mouth of God. His criteria for being of God was the need to listen for and follow what is being said by the Father.
As an example to that, to the one who answered Him wisely in Mark 12:29-34 about the most important commandment Jesus said, You have answered wisely, “You are not far from the Kingdom of God.”
What? Not far? The man quoted the passage exactly and even added one. What did Jesus mean by saying “You are not far from the Kingdom of God”?
He’s saying His Kingdom and our entrance into it is not about our ability to know or quote scripture or even that we believe it is true. Knowing what is written or even believing it isn’t what recommends us into His presence, just ask the Pharisees, who knew everything about God except the answers to the questions offered them by the Living Word of God who was walking among them! HINT HINT!
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matt 7:24
God’s desire is for us to receive His Spirit led passion and deep curiosity for His voice. To lean into the Holy Spirit’s revelation, the rock of what it being said right now. The Holy communion of God they share in unity. His desire is for us to have an ear to hear His Living Word, the voice of His intercession that is speaking even now revealing everything we could possibly ever think or know of God. That is the Way, the Truth and the Life, a heart that considers, heeds and ponders what is said. The rock is revelation of The Father and that should be heralded and shouted from the rooftops as so.
We can read the scriptures and gain “knowledge about God”, but if we don’t recognize it is His voice that brings the understanding and the empowerment to do His will we are amiss of what His intercession is and can not bear fruit that is in keeping with repentance. The life offered in Christ is his voice, the Living Word that proceeds from the mouth of God, followed with after and behind into life.
So in rounding out this little shuffle into a 12 bar blues pattern for this Bridge. Here are the final four bars, short and sweet, Dominant 5th to resolve.
He has been asking me this question ever since the Bridge became an option of consideration.
“Exactly how much of this existence labeled as life is outright a lie?”
Whoooaa?! Seems like that question is going to have some legs of it’s own. But in the meantime, it is enough to say the progressive understanding of contrast between what He is saying is life and the lie that has been believed is becoming clearer. Every step of understanding has come through hearing the Living Word of His intercession and receiving the rock of revelation He brings in repentance. His Living Word flies in the face of the TOTKOGAE and exposes it’s death.
In this time of repentance on the Bridge, I’ve been led to spend some time reviewing doctrines of denominations. You know those divisions of Christ based on what man says scripture says about God? Wow?! What a mess we are.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are. Matt 23:13,15
So much self-righteousness, so much arrogance and pride placing ourselves right before God, arbitrating good and evil in the face of God for others just like those Jesus was speaking with in John 8 and Matt 23.
It’s a blindness born of a deep sickness and decay of the soul for us to point to scripture as the word of God, yet not be in unity with Jesus who IS the word of God. It seems so blatantly obvious when the Spirit exposes it. If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness, he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions, and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. 1 Tim 6:3-5
That just about sums up all denominationalism. People who do not choose the unity Jesus lived in with the Father, the doctrine that conforms us to godliness empowered by the Holy Spirit. It would appear based on testimony, some think they are actually gaining something in God in the “righteous” stand they take in their “knowledge” about God. Justifying their divisive heart and demanding their understanding be the rule. It’s a dispute of words, not the life in the Word. It’s also a lie.
The harsh reality is no one can live in His unity if they aren’t following the voice of the Holy Spirit, the only one who can lead us into His unity. In following the voices of men in their knowledge of good and evil, the father of lies deceives us into believing that following God is about what we know. And it’s not. Following that logic, Jesus should have picked Pharisees and Sadducees as disciples instead of tax collectors and fishermen. This lie is the big umbrella and is one of the most insidious.
I have heard with my own ears, people of divergent denominations say, “God has placed everything we need to know in this book”. But based on the words of Jesus praying for unity before He was tortured and killed, the savagery of division and denominational scattering that they endorse has proven that they do not follow the book and produce rotten fruit. Living a lie, while proclaiming they hold the truth. Knowing of some words on a page but not knowing the voice of the speaker who points to the Father. John 8 branches fit for the fire.
Believing that the Bible is all we need is blasphemous of the Holy Spirit whom Jesus and the Father sent to us to lead us into all truth. It is an outright lie of the enemy of our souls to deny or even slightly ignore the Spirit of truth and the totality of everything He is to our enlightenment and ability to do the will of God. Do we really believe we figure God out for ourselves through what we read? Blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Matt 12:31 Another ponder stop?
His voice is the revelation for anything and everything we could possibly think or know about God. And if we are not listening for the voice of Him who leads us into unity with the Father, we can not be following the written word. Do we think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”? If it wasn’t for the voice of the living God speaking His revelation right now through the Holy Spirit to the hearts of the breathing dust, men would flounder to understand anything about God or anything that has ever been written about God. Case in point.
The motivation and ability, the strength, power and authority to do anything in Christ is in the power of the Holy Spirit alone. “The Holy Spirit is THE most important asset the bride has in this earth.” That’s why the Father and Jesus sent Him to us. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Cor. 3:17
The Holy Spirit has made me acutely aware of the spirit of those who consume and are driven by the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, yet push it as life. Jesus said, “you will know them by their fruit”. With a self-assured inclination sitting off in the wings or worse seeking to rule the stage straining at gnats, continually searching for the error of others as they consume the TOTKOGAE. All the while proclaiming they are promoting Jesus, the tree of Life.
Due to our failure to listen first for His intercession and follow into His unity, the result of our actions end up being fruit born of the wrong tree, resulting in death. In that, we injure souls and destroy trusts. In the consumption of this TOTKOGAE fruit we will manipulate for advantage, marginalize others for a perceived position, condemning, withholding forgiveness and judging. The fruit of the TOTKOGAE is in direct opposition to Christ who said, “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. Matt 12:30
His intercession is for all to enter in with Him because He is not counting our sins against us. His Spirit is asking for us to be in agreement with that understanding and bear the fruit of gatherers. But the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil causes us to scatter others and in that, we do not enter in with Him either.
This is why listening for the Holy Spirit, the voice of His intercession is so important because without listening as if to follow in repentance, failure is sure, death is the result because ONLY His words are life.
Without the voice of His Spirit speaking and an ear to hear what is being said, we are lost in our own administration of righteousness based on the fruit of the TOTKOGAE. It does not matter what we say we believe or if we proclaim the Bible as the word of God. If we neglect to listen for and follow what the Holy Spirit is saying right now, by nature we default to consuming the fruit of the wrong tree and do not have the Word of God in us just as Jesus told the crowd in John 8.
So is Jesus asking us or is the Holy Spirit leading us to not notice corrupt fruit? To not recognize the sick amongst us, the blind that need recovered sight, the captives who need liberty, the oppressed who lack freedom and the lost who He desires be found? Of course not.
So what does one say or do when they encounter those who categorically fit the bill, possessing corrupt fruit or having branches fit only for the fire? Jesus by the Holy Spirit would lead us to ask the “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34 Why? Because, God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. 2 Cor. 5:19
Over 24 months ago He asked me, “What am I doing right now?” Over the course of that conversation He ended up answering His own question to me. “I am sitting at My Father’s right hand interceding. I am speaking the will of My Father through My Spirit for who so ever will listen and follow. It is this intercession that sustains all life and is at the heart of why I taught you to hallow the Father when you pray, for My Kingdom to come and My will be done on earth as it is in heaven. These are the very words that proceed from the mouth of God and by them you shall live and without them you shall perish, repent! I am seeking the treasure of my Father’s heart in one who will consider Me, who will ponder the sound of My voice, a people who will pay heed and incline their ear to My Words. I am interceding and the repentant hear and follow Me.
Continuing the conversation into today and this Bridge He says, My intercession is freely offered. It is the Word of cleansing, healing and restoration on behalf of those whose fruit is rotten, who’s branches are only fit for the fire and I ask the repentant to gather with me and not scatter.”
I can offer the knowledge that the Triune God, Father Son and Spirit is asking the question, “What am I doing right now?” I can share that this question is reverberating across the whole of the universe seeking to create hunger in His wayward creation and draw us all into himself, for His glory. That this question is the initiating spark to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness Matt 6:33.
I can offer the knowledge about the relationship Jesus had with our Father, that is the Way, the Truth and the Life and that He desires everyone to enter into their relationship as He did in repentance.
I can offer the knowledge that Jesus did exactly what the Father commanded Him. That in the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus listened for and followed the voice of His Father. And that He is petitioning all to enter into the understanding of this heart posture, so His will can be done. And in light of that great grace, I can offer you the knowledge that, “I live off of His intercession in repentance”.
But here is where the knowledge of good and evil breaks down as sufficiency for a relationship to God and where the enemy of our souls has instigated the lie, that we will be like God in “knowing”. A lie “believers” have consumed and bear fruit to.
Because we can not fully grasp in our minds, nor encapsulate with earthly words the mystery of what He is saying in our spirits, what He creates in us is repentance. He creates a heart that is forever leaning in, with anticipatory desire to hear, seeking for His understanding in our hearts. One who will go with, after and behind His voice, pondering considering and heeding what is said. This is seek first, this is Your Kingdom come and Your will be done and it is initiated by His voice and found like a child.
There is no law or knowledge of good and evil where His voice is perceived. In hearing, the heart is cleansed and joy is aroused. The beauty of his voice, like a treasure that has been found can’t be taught through the knowledge of good and evil. For as the soul is bound by the knowledge of good and evil and clings to the interpretation of law as the arbitrator of truth, we remain blind to the unmerited favor of his freedom offered.
Hearing His voice is the treasure worthy of selling off everything else to receive. In the sound of the many waters, He has made known to us the mystery of His will, …in Christ, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will… Eph. 1:9-11
Through this JOURNEY, He has made me to be a watchman. On a search for the souls who express an anticipatory expectation for His voice and an ear to hear what He says with a childlike hunger. I now search for the words of the tree of life that promote the Father and amongst “believers” bear as a cross in forbearance the fruit of that “other tree” and all of it’s serpent inspired pride and arrogance in the knowledge of good and evil, the TOTKOGAE. I pan the horizon of this dark age we live in listening for the draw to His unity and the voice of His intercession and what He is doing right now.
So at the risk of being alone, being deserted, abandoned, left for dead, not having another give any sense of agreement or invitation to inclusion, I listen for His voice and His voice only as if to follow. Having begun in the Spirit He leads me to abandon any hope in the flesh, the devises or will of man to find God.
All hope for entering into the invitation to His eternal home, rest in the voice of His intercession being met in repentance, the image we are created in. Come! Listen for Him telling you what He is doing right now. Come! Listen for the beauty in what He is saying. Come! With, after and behind to ponder, consider, heed and understand the treasure in His voice.
