Don’t Let Your Light Dim

Don’t let your light dim

Live in love, humility, and godly wisdom

Don’t let your light dim

By envying what others have and selfish ambition

Don’t let your light dim

By quarreling or grumbling, causing dissension

Don’t let your light dim

Show understanding, mercy, and peaceful reconciliation

In the meekness of God’s wisdom

Do not be like this wicked generation

Be the light of Christ in reflection of Him

Don’t let your light dim

Seek God’s wisdom

Reading: James 3:17

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy, and good fruits, impartial and sincere.

Lost Pebbles in the Sand

Being grinned by the waves of a world

filled with untruth, deception, violence,

idolatry, and corruption.

 Lost souls, lost pebbles in the sand

Unstable by one’s own or another’s

Reasoning, beliefs, judgement, or assumptions  

Just lost pebbles in the sand

Serve God and listen to His voice

His voice that can help you make the right choice

God is shouting from the Heavens this is my Son listen to Him

Repent! Cease going in your ways and whims.

Divine intervention is the call that is spreading through the land

and in the hearts of man

So that you will not be lost pebbles in the sand

Reading: Psalm 81

 Oh that my people should listen to me.

Gentleness

Gentleness an attribute of Jesus

The way God desires to see us

Strengthening and encouraging others

Especially our sisters and brothers

Gentleness a sign of meekness

But not to be attributed to weakness

For when one is weak God is strong

Gentleness is an attribute of Jesus

The way God desires to see us

Reading: Galatians 6:1

Brothers if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness.

Desire

Discerning biblical truth that

Emerges from the depths of the heart

Sustaining, humbling, and uplifting

Is honoring God and

Righteous in His sight

Emancipating to those who are in bondage.

Desire

Reading:

1 Timothy 2:4

God’s desire is that all people be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.

God’s People

Operating in all authority in the Kingdom

Restoring the relationship between man and God

The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!

Behold Your God

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;

The God of glory thunders.

                  As loud as a cherubim’s wings flapping

                  One must listen diligently and follow His commands

                 For one’s life or another is in one’s hands.

                 Many have ignored or disobeyed His voice

                 In walking in His ways in the footsteps of His Son

                Walk in the light across the sand and listen to His Spirit

                The voice of the Lord is over the waters

                 The God of glory thunders. Behold your God!

Emmanuel

Everlasting life

Messiah, King of Kings, Lord of Lords.

Mediator between God and man

Angels bow before Him

Nothing goes before Him

Utmost High

Evidence of divine power

Lover of our souls

                   Emmanuel

Reading:

Matthew 1:23

 Behold a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel which being interpreted as, God with us.

Rich in mercy, grace, and love

Innocent, sweet, and powerful

Teacher of service and abundant life

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Walking Proof

God’s written letter

Written in blood red ink

The blood of Jesus

In the deep well of my heart, mind, and soul

A touch of ink on His pointed pen

Writing anointing words that teach and direct

My heart by the hand of His Spirit

Whose handwriting is legible for others to read

Is walking proof

Of God’s written letter

Written in blood red ink

That He sealed with a holy kiss

Reading: 2 Corinthians 3:3

And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

Man of Many Visions

In the book of Zechariah,  Zechariah had eight visions that he was curious about and desired to understand the meaning of them. So like a little child, who is full of questions he asked the angel to interpret the visions. I will not at this time discuss all his visions, you can read them yourself they are quite interesting. I was particularly interested in the vision of the flying scroll and the vision of a woman in the basket because I ran across a lost page tucked in my bible from one of my journals. The date was 12/26/2018, and it read “Land of Shinar Zechariah 5, basket- flying scroll-visions of Zechariah,” I wrote page numbers and what bible I read it from, because I knew I would forget. The journal note read “woman in the basket represent wickedness being removed from the land and a house is made for it.” Jesus second coming will see the final judgment and removal of wickedness in the world (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10). As I read further two women with the wind in their wings lifted up the basket between heaven and earth (Zechariah 5:3-11; Revelation 5:9;6:12-17).  So, I went to the pages listed and read the Flying Scroll and the Woman in the Basket.

In the story of the flying scroll, one must understand that scrolls represent the written word of God (Psalm 40: 7; Jeremiah 36; Ezekiel 2 — 3), this particular scroll was the law of Moses (NIV Bible). The scroll that Zechariah envisioned is described as a large banner and was clear for everyone to see. And the angel interpreted the vision saying that the scroll represented the curse that is going out the whole land. And on one side of the banner read “every thief will be banished and on the other side everyone who swears falsely will be banished,” which God declared. One commentary reads that God has sent the scroll to put things right and ensure that the guilty will not be acquitted, an action consistent with His character  (Exodus 20: 7; 34: 7). Furthermore, in contrast to God’s house, the temple, that will be built (Zechariah 1: 16; 3: 7; 4: 9), the curse of the scroll will enter and destroy the houses of the guilty. The vision is related to Jesus holding in His hand the scroll in Revelation for He is the one who will judge His enemies (Revelation 5: 9; 6:12– 17).

In the story of the woman in the basket the angel told Zechariah to come forward and to lift his eyes and see what was going out. Zechariah who must have been in awe responded with the question “What is it?” In which the angel said, “This is the basket that is going out.” And “This is their iniquity in all the land.” And the angel lifted a leaden cover where there sat a woman in the basket. Now that is enough to make anyone ask “what in the world is that? The angel explained to Zechariah that she was wickedness. Then the angel quickly pushed the woman back in the basket covering her with the leaden weight. That’s when Zechariah lifted his eyes and saw the two women coming forward with the wind in their wings. The wings were described as wings of a stork. The two women carried the basket between heaven and earth. Then in in Zechariah’s inquisitiveness he asked the angel “Where are they taking the basket?” The angel said to him, “to the land of Shinar, to build a house for it and after it is prepared they will set the basket down there on its base.”
