THE JOURNEY is a compilation of ten works I was led to write and record. They are a collection of the most inspiring and powerful revelations the Spirit of God has ever brought to me. Over time, I’ve realized just how much these revelations don’t fit into this microwave society where people barely allow time to ponder who they have been created to be much less how the life of God actually manifests Himself in us, empowering us to live for and express His opinion, judgement and view of this world.
THE JOURNEY mapped out to be 40,459 words, a little less then 7% the size of Tolstoy’s War and Peace. Yet, through it, beginning with His question, “What am I Doing Right Now?” I have been led to peace in a way never understood before and the war has been won in the simple, easy yoke of Christ, receiving the leading of His voice as the treasure of my heart.
What the Holy Spirit has revealed through THE JOURNEY is hidden in plain sight. It’s right there in the Bible, but even after He asked me the question, “What Am I Doing Right Now”? I didn’t understand what He was trying to communicate until I followed the draw of His Voice to seek, ask and knock for the understanding. MATT 7:7
You are interceding is the biblical answer I gave Him sometime later, but He revealed that a biblical answer was not His purpose in asking the question in the first place. Truly, in the moment, the deeper and more honest answer was and still is, I don’t know will you show me?
This is key because His question did not revolve around me knowing and responding that intercession was taking place. The beauty and elegance in the design of His question was about unfolding the mystery of the One speaking. His desire was for me to know and love the resonance, tone and texture of His voice and join in, with, after and behind what He is saying, in unity. Listening for Him as a treasure hidden and found in a field.
That is the essence of Eternal Life.
His Voice speaking carried the solemn weight and wonder of a father pointing out to his son an utterly unique shell on the beach. In a question, the Father brought attention to what is consistently out in the open and utilized by all, but missed in the untrained ear and self-reliant gaze of a child.
I had never understood, seen or heard anything about what He was pointing out to me. No corporate gathering or any Jesus broadcasts had ever led me to what I was shown. Right off the top I believe there are a few reasons why this revelation is overlooked.
First. It’s revelation and to simple. The fullness of it being,
“Listen for His Voice and His Voice Only.”
Second. Number one places full responsibility on every individual to do as Jesus bid and have an ear to hear what the Spirit of TRUTH is saying. Not what we want to believe, or have been told to believe, or what we think we know about God JOHN 8. It seems everyone trips right here under the subtle cunning and deception of the enemy through the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil [TOTKOGAE] and the social pressure of “Group Think”.
Third. In light of The Spirit of TRUTH being our counselor and leader, promoting the Father’s desire for all to “Listen for His Voice and His Voice Only”, the power of man over other people is removed. Subsequently, the modern “Directors Of God” (DOG) who act in this perceived power are shown to be misguided and obsolete as they seek to constrain people into their own framework of belief or understanding of doctrine. Ironically, it’s something Jesus never did.
Number 3 made the Pharisees’ and the teachers of the law furious with Jesus and the same effect carries forward and manifests today. Men believing they are expert and holding power and sway over others, creates insensibility to the freedom from bondage both Jesus and Paul exhorted us to embrace in the Spirit of TRUTH.
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. JOHN 16:13
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” JOHN 8:32
You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings.1 COR 7:23
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. JOHN 8:36
As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but His anointing teaches you about all things… 1 JOHN 2:27
What His question led me to see and share is everything hinges on Him speaking to an ear that hears His Voice. That’s why I have been led to proclaim,
His intercession is the Living Word being spoken “Right Now” and Jesus said His followers would hear and do as His Voice leads. EVERYTHING else is wood, hay and stubble fit for the fire. Let that sink in for a minute, considering the careless words we utter.
Our belief or faith, our adherence to the doctrines of men and what we think we know are not what endorses or gives weight to His presence in us, JAMES 2:18-19. The weight of His presence in us is the unity of God Jesus spoke of in JOHN 17 through a listening ear following and “doing” exactly what the Father says, by His Holy Spirit.
…so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father commanded Me… JOHN 14:31
…For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. JOHN 12:49
Who considers, as believers in the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, that it should be any different for us? I will absolutely guarantee that listening for and following the opinion, judgement and view of God, His Doxa is not any different for us than it was for Jesus. That is, if we are going to be doing His will and entering in to His Kingdom.
A disciple is one taught in the same way.
One who hears the “call” and becomes a “learner” of that way.
One who learns to listen for His voice and His Voice only, as Jesus did.
Everything in the walk of Jesus was born of repentance, following with after and behind what His Father was saying and doing. That’s why the first thing Jesus called us to in His service to humanity was to repentant for the Kingdom of God is at hand. So we would be just like Him, re-made, born again, in His image. GEN 1:26 This is the doctrine of Christ that conforms us to Godliness. 1 TIM 6:3
It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. MATT 10:25
This is a Ponder Stop!
This 👆is what I have been shown through THE JOURNEY. Step by step He’s confirmed the revelation and depth in the Living and active Word of His power being met in repentance HEB 4:12 & 1:3.
He has led me to give testimony. To write it all down and do audio recordings because He longs for others to understand the magnitude of His Voice for salvation in eternity. I would encourage reading or listening or both to all 10 pieces, letting them soak you because there is life changing revelation He wants to bring to us in THE JOURNEY.
Few set out to the wilderness to meet with Him and Him alone.
To listen for His Voice and His Voice Only.”
Is this the small gate and narrow road that leads to life that Jesus said few find?
WORD OF CAUTION: Romans 3 states no one seeks God, let the reader understand, this isn’t knowledge to be gained, a passage found or recited. It’s revelation received as a gift to be treasured. It is Life and Life is seeking us.
I have it on good authority, there is no way what I’ve been shown can be taught, just like I wasn’t taught, I received this. This could be shared for days on end and it still might not be comprehended. Hearing the words, even being able to repeat them, but still acting in restriction to the flood of the Living Water. Knowledge about something without the treasure of the understanding becoming our fruit.
It is the Voice of the Speaker that is to be listened for.
It is the repentance in His Voice that conforms us to His will.
The doctrine of Christ that conforms us to Godliness.
His will is His voice being followed. For those with ears let them hear.
Compounding this quandary of knowledge vs revelation, the rock Jesus said He would build His church on; the Bible offers no practical application, or methodology on how we acquire an ear to hear what the Spirit says or how the Spirit truly leads. Ponder this one.
The Bible is silent on a subject that Jesus spoke of with importunity. His calling and our mandatory inclination for Him to obtain us. Do you see it? Is that the fruit on your tree?
Reconciling this point in my spirit has proven what the Holy Spirit has led me to see, “I Live Off Of His Intercession In Repentance”. That is, the Spirit of the Living God speaks the revelation of His will and in repentance (with, after and behind what He says I am led to ponder, consider, heed and think upon that Word). To seek, ask and knock for His understanding of what He is saying. Full recognition of His persistence and animation of the Word life.
So the intention His question insinuates is, “Who is listening for the pouring out of My Spirit? The primary point of origin for revelation. The consistent, pervasive, ever-present, enunciation of the Word of My will being spoken, as if to follow”? ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ MATT & LUKE 4:4
THAT’S THE GOSPEL! THAT IS LIFE AND SALVATION!!
He satisfies the Law and the Prophets in this one thing.
It is the yoke that is easy and the essence of the deep love of God.
Who do we know that gives their life and time to wait on His Living Word being spoken, the leading of His voice? We are called to be like our Master? Can you see how the reconstituted microwaveable reformed knowledge of God in our culture is anathema to God?
Again, scripture is silent in terms of method or practicality for the acquisition of an ear to hear because there isn’t one. And the reason why is because it’s reception, like a radio tuned into the frequency of the Eternal Broadcaster and it was installed at creation into all humanity. God’s Gap in the heart, HIS IMAGE where everything God flows to us, saved or not.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” LUKE 11:13
The sad and erroneous centuries long projection has been God is outside and needs to be learned, knowledge needs to be garnered, but Jesus told the Pharisees that the Kingdom of heaven is within you. LUKE 17:21 It’s in your mouth and in your heart that you may observe it. DEUT. 30:11-14
Scripture is not silent and does clearly tell us,
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 COR. 3:17
…and if anyone does not have* the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. ROM 8:9
The word “have” is translated from *Strongs G2192 – echō – “have”.
Restated: If anyone does not “echo” the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. “Echo” like His voice bouncing off the wall of God’s Gap in the heart, repeated. …repeated …repeated.
…so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father commanded Me…
A monumental Ponder Stop right here.
…8 – 9 -10.
“I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. MATT11:25
But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” JOHN 4:23-24
To hide Himself from the prudent and the wise, those who think God is knowledge to be gained or precepts to put in order, the Father has ordained worshipers who will follow Him in Spirit and TRUTH.
The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so it is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can these things be?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and do not understand these things? Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony. If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? JOHN 3:8-12
The Word of His Voice is the seed in the soil that reveals Him. MARK 4:3-20 Do the Ponder Stops ever cease?
Revelation received as Peter heard in MATT 16:17 and Paul proclaimed in GAL 1:12 is His Living Word, the Voice speaking and upholding all things right now. The answer to “What Am I Doing Right Now?” is the revelation of Himself through the living Water to humanity. Never desiccated, desiring in perpetuity to flood us with His Life. No man can teach us, but He does desire to baptize us all with the Holy Spirit and fire; to cleanse us in the full immersion of the Living Water. It is the One speaking the Hebrews 4:12 Living and Active Word that empowers Life in our spirits, transforms our minds and is eternal life.
I will leave this here/hear for now…
