GOD’S EDITORIALS

 

EVEN AS I SPOKE TO YOU OF MY JUDGMENTS, FRIEND
THEY BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 15TH AND WILL CONTINUE A FULL FOUR MONTHS
THROUGH JANUARY 15TH OVER THE HARLOT CHURCH
ONCE MORE I WILL STRIKE AND STRIKE IN VENGEANCE
FOR WE HAVE A PURE CHURCH TO RAISE UP AND THOSE OF THE HARLOTS
SURELY KEEP MY PEOPLE HOSTAGE
I SPOKE TO YOU, SERVANT OF
PSALM 75
WHICH WILL BE MY WORK DURING THIS TIME
I WILL LAY LOW THE HARLOT AND RAISE UP THE RIGHTEOUS

"I WILL CUT OFF THE HORNS OF THE WICKED,
BUT THE HORNS OF THE RIGHTEOUS WILL BE LIFTED UP."

SURELY AND COMPLETELY I WILL BRING IT TO PASS

AND AS YOU STEPPED FULLY INTO MY GLORY THIS PAST WEEK
I PUT UPON YOU MANTLES OF GREAT STRENGTH
ALONG WITH MY PASSION
YOU ARE READY, CHILD, FOR ALL THAT I CALL YOU TO DO
DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME THAT I ASKED YOU TO GIVE YOUR TESTIMONY?
IT WILL BEGIN LIKE THAT, BUT THIS TIME I WILL PROVIDE MY ANOINTING --
MY BOLDNESS TO SEE YOU THROUGH
THE OTHER WAS SIMPLY A TEST TO DETERMINE HOW DEEP YOUR LOVE WAS FOR ME
BUT NOW, WE HAVE WORK TO DO AROUND THIS WORLD
ARE YOU READY?
I HAVE MADE YOU THE PROMISE OF
PSALM 89
AND I WILL FULFILL IT
AS YOU SING OF MY GREAT LOVE
YOU KNOW THAT I WILL DO MY PART
YOU TREMBLE EVEN AS YOU TYPE THESE WORDS FOR THE ANOINTINGS
WHICH I HAVE GIVEN TO YOU ARE MUCH TOO MUCH FOR SIMPLY TYPING
I WILL SEND YOU WORLD-WIDE SOON AND YOU WILL SPEAK
"OH NO!" YOU SAY, BUT LISTEN CLOSELY, CHILD
FOR THIS IS MY PLAN AND I WILL BRING IT TO PASS
DESPITE ALL YOUR "OH NO'S"
DESPITE EVERY SINGLE ONE
FOR THE PLAN IS THE PLAN
AND I DO NOT CHANGE
WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN? - YOU ARE AFRAID TO ASK
WHEN ALL IS READY
THERE IS STILL WORK TO DO
AND A CHURCH TO LAY LOW
BUT WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT
I WILL SEND YOU OUT AND OUT AND OUT
I PLACED THESE ANOINTINGS UPON YOU FOR A REASON
AND THEY MUST BE USED TO BRING FORTH MY TRUE, PURE CHURCH
YOU WILL BE READY
I PROMISE

AND WHAT DID I SHOW YOU THIS PAST WEEK, CHILD
THAT MAKES YOUR HEART SING?
IT IS A SYMBOL OF MY WORK WITH MY CHURCH WHICH YOU ARE EARNING
IT IS A SYMBOL WITH GREAT REPRESENTATION OF MY POWER AND MY STRENGTH
AND YET, WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT
AND ALL IS FULFILLED, I, YOUR FATHER AND FRIEND
WILL PLACE IT AT YOUR DOORSTEP
I WILL AND WE WILL RIDE TOGETHER AS TWO KIDS
KNOWING THE JOY OF ALL THAT I WILL DO TO BRING FORTH
A SOLID KINGDOM FOUNDED IN MY GREAT LOVE
YOU TASTED OF MY LOVE THIS LAST WEEK
AND ALL APPOINTMENTS WERE PUT ON HOLD
FOR YOU WERE MINE - ALL MINE
AND I LOVED YOU AND BROUGHT FORTH VISIONS AND MANTLES
TO SHOW YOU MY GREAT LOVE AND TO BRING FORTH THE FUTURE
YOU TASTED OF MY LOVE AND YOU WILL TRULY NEVER BE THE SAME
BUT READ PSALM 89 VERY CAREFULLY
FOR THE PROMISES OF YOUR FUTURE ARE WITHIN THE LINES
READ VERY CAREFULLY
AND THEN LET ME READ IT TO YOU ALOUD
FOR I HAVE A WORK TO DO UPON YOU WHICH IS STILL TO COME
OF MY PASSION POURED OUT TO SECURE MY LINEAGE
FOR WHAT IS WON ON THIS EARTH WITHOUT PASSION?
I AM A GOD OF PASSION AND I WILL BRING IT FORTH THROUGH YOU
STILL TREMBLING, HEH?
THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO "GET RID OF THE ANOINTING"
USE IT
AND THAT YOU WILL DO TO ALL YOU MEET
FOR THERE IS A DIFFERENCE ABOUT YOU NOW
YOU KNOW IT NOT
AND YET YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED IT WITH CHILDREN
WHERE THEY WOULD IMMEDIATELY ACT AS IF YOU WERE THEIR GOOD BUDDY
FOR THEY "KNEW YOU"
AND THOSE WHO ARE MINE AND WILL BECOME MINE
WILL ALSO TREAT YOU THE SAME
BUT I WARN YOU JUST AS SAMUEL WAS NOT ALLOWED TO SEE KING SAUL
AGAIN AFTER SAUL'S DISOBEDIENCE
THOSE WHO HAVE REFUSED ME AND MY GIFTS THROUGH YOU
YOU ARE NOT TO SEE OR MEET WITH UNTIL AFTER THE DATE OF JANUARY 15TH
FOR I HAVE A WORK TO DO
AND I WANT EVEN YOU OUT OF THE WAY
UNDERSTAND?

THESE ARE GOOD DAYS, CHILD
AS YOU SIT BEFORE THE COMPUTER AND TYPE AND TYPE
AND HIDE OUT
BUT KNOW THAT THE DAYS WILL COME SOON WHEN YOU WILL
STEP OUT INTO A NEW ARENA
I GAVE YOU A VISION LAST WEEK OF YOU LEAVING THE ARENA OF THE "CHURCH"
YOU WALKED OUT AND DID NOT EVEN TURN YOUR HEAD
WHEN A FEW CALLED YOUR NAME TO RETURN
LATER, I SHOWED YOU A STADIUM BEING COMPLETELY REMODELED
AND YOU KNEW
THAT EVEN WITH THE REMODELING
IT WON'T BE ALL THAT I WANT IT TO BE
I WILL SEND YOU TO AN ENTIRELY NEW ARENA
OPENING SOON . . .

THE SURVIVOR

"Johnson, now 17, was studying in the high school library when two classmates, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, walked in and shouted,
‘Everybody get read to die.’ Twelve students, a teacher and two gunmen
died in the shooting. During the past year, Johnson has made more than 35 appearances around the country, telling her story to youth and religious groups. ‘I believe God’s Hand was on me that day,’ Johnson said in a recent telephone interview. ‘I knew then this is what I wanted to do; tell people
God was with me that day and that He would not forsake me.’”
The Oregonian

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE
THAT CAN CLAIM TO BE SURVIVORS
FROM ALL DIFFERENT TYPES OF SITUATIONS
BUT MY SALUTE THIS WEEK GOES TO A YOUNG LADY
WHO ENDURED A HORRIFIC SENSELESS DISPLAY OF VIOLENCE
BUT CHOOSES TO USE IT FOR MY GLORY
AND TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE
YOUNG HEIDI DID NOT CHOOSE TO GO THROUGH THIS ORDEAL
BUT JUST AS TIME CAN NOT GO BACKWARDS
HER MEMORY CANNOT BE ERASED
OF THE PAIN AND SUFFERING AND FEAR
WHICH SHE SAW AND EXPERIENCED
BUT SHE LOOKS AT THE ORDEAL AND KNOWS WITHOUT A DOUBT
THAT GOOD CAN COME FROM IT
AND IT MOST CERTAINLY WILL
THANKS TO HER BRAVERY

AS SHE SAYS,
"You can take away the guns;
you can take away the knives,
but until you get God inside you,
nothing’s going to
change.”

THAT IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH
SCHOOL DISTRICTS SPEND MILLIONS TO DEVELOP NEW PROGRAMS
TO ASSIST THE CHILDREN IN AREAS OF SELF-ESTEEM
BUT THAT WILL NOT / CANNOT SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF VIOLENCE

TO HAVE THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE EVIDENT WITHIN
WILL BRING ABOUT TOTAL TRANSFORMATION
AND THEN, WHY DON'T YOU SEE TRANSFORMATION
WITHIN THE CHURCHES?
BECAUSE MANY ONLY MENTALLY ASSENT
TO THE CHRISTIAN MESSAGE WITHOUT A TRANSFORMATION
THE PEOPLE CAN ACT GOOD AND DO MANY RIGHT THINGS
BUT THERE IS ONLY TRANSFORMATION WHEN I LIVE WITHIN
ONLY THEN

PREACH ON, HEIDI JOHNSON
YOU ARE DOING A MOST EXCELLENT JOB!
THANK YOU!

WHAT WAS FORGOTTEN?

A YOUNG MAN LIES
IN A HOSPITAL BED THINKING AND THINKING
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT

HE REMEMBERS
THE TIMES OF PLAYING OUTDOORS
AND JUST HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS
BUT THE SICKNESS UPON HIM KEEPS HIM LYING FLAT
WAITING TO GET BETTER

A PROPHET HE WILL BE SOMEDAY
BUT FOR NOW, HE WONDERS WHEN HE CAN RISE UP
AND LIFE WILL BE AS IT USED TO BE BEFORE THE PAIN BEGAN

WHY IS YOUTH SO FLEETING?
WHY DOES ADULTHOOD AND ALL ITS RESPONSIBILITIES COME
SO QUICKLY FOR SOME?
THE YOUNG MAN COMES FROM A LARGE FAMILY
HE IS THE OLDEST OF 8 CHILDREN
IN A HOME WHERE LOVE IS THE THEME
BUT WHY THIS?
THE HOUSEHOLD HONORS GOD
FROM THE OLDEST TO THE YOUNGEST
SO, WHY THE SUFFERING?

BECAUSE NOT ALL YOUTH
ARE ABLE TO BE IN FAMILIES WHERE THERE IS LOVE
AND COUNSEL
BECAUSE THIS WORLD DOES NOT
REVOLVE AROUND ME AND MY STANDARDS
BECAUSE THE YOUNG COUPLE OF EIGHT CHILDREN
GAVE ME EACH OF THEIR CHILDREN TO USE FOR MY GLORY
AND THAT I WILL DO
I WILL START WITH THE FIRST ONE
AND MAKE HIM A MIGHTY SPOKESMAN FOR MY WAYS

WHEN WILL THIS BEGIN?
WHAT WILL CAUSE IT TO START?
WILL I COME UPON HIM IN DREAMS OR SIMPLY AN AWARENESS?

IT DOES NOT TRULY MATTER
FOR JUST AS I SHOWED MY SERVANT THE OTHER DAY
HOW I VIEW THE SCOPE OF LIFE, ITSELF
I ASKED HER TO LOOK INTO MY EYES
CLOSE HERS SHE DID QUITE OFTEN THROUGH THIS JOURNEY
FOR IT WAS MUCH TOO MUCH TO TAKE IN AT ONCE
BUT FINISH SHE DID
AND I EXPLAINED TO HER THAT I WOULD SHOW HER
THE SCOPE OF A LIFE
WHEN SHE BEGINS TO CALL FORTH THE ANOINTING ON A LIFE
I WOULD SHOW HER THE END RESULT AND THE VICTORY
ALL SHE MUST DO IS MAKE THE CALL
AND LISTEN FOR INSTRUCTIONS TO GUIDE
THE PERSON ON THEIR APPOINTED PATH
IT WILL BE QUITE EASY
BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THE END FROM THE BEGINNING
SO AS TO NOT GET DISCOURAGED
SO ALL THE QUESTIONS BECOME IRRELEVANT
I WILL SIMPLY DO MY WORK IN MY TIMING
AND ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE FOLLOWED
SIMPLE
COMPLETE

THE YOUNG MAN'S DISEASE
ROBS HIM OF THE PART OF HIM
THAT MUST ASSIMILATE WHAT HE EATS
THE PART THAT MUST BE REMOVED NO LONGER WORKS
AND WILL SPREAD THE DISEASE FURTHER IF IT IS NOT TAKEN AWAY
AND THUS, HIS CALLING WILL BE THE SAME
HE WILL REMOVE FROM HIS GENERATION THROUGH MY WORDS
THE PARTS THAT KEEP THE KIDS FROM LISTENING
AND "EATING" OF MY TRUTH
THE PART OF THE CHILDREN
THAT WILL NOT LISTEN WILL BE REMOVED
SO THAT THE HARDNESS OF HEART WILL NOT DESTROY THEM
IT IS A TASK THAT I WILL PREPARE THIS YOUNG MAN FOR THOROUGHLY

HE SITS IN HIS ROOM AND WAITS FOR BETTER DAYS
I SIT UPON MY THRONE AND WAIT FOR THIS GENERATION
TO RISE UP AND BRING FORTH MUCH BETTER DAYS FOR MY KINGDOM
WE'RE ON THE SAME PATH
THIS YOUNG BOY AND I
AND SOON HE WILL KNOW IT WITH ALL HIS HEART, SOUL AND BODY
I HAVE CHOSEN HIM FOR A GREAT TASK
AND HE WILL FINISH IT WITH FINESSE
I AM PROUD OF YOU, ALREADY, SON
I AM!!!

I CONCLUDE WITH A RIDDLE:
AS MY SERVANT MOVES THE PAGE TO SHOW THE TITLE ONCE MORE
AND WONDERS WHAT THE TITLE WHICH I GAVE HER
HAS TO DO WITH THE EDITORIAL
I WILL SHOW YOU

WHAT WAS FORGOTTEN?
AS A YOUNG BOY GROWS INTO A MAN
AND HE PUTS ASIDE HIS YOUTH
HE THINKS BACK TO THE GOOD TIMES
AND THE TIMES OF LOVE AND PAIN
HE MAY THINK OF GIFTS
THAT HE RECEIVED AND TROUBLES WHICH HE HAD
FRIENDSHIPS, WILL USUALLY BE FOREMOST IN HIS MEMORY
BUT WHAT WAS FORGOTTEN
AS THE YOUNG BOY GROWS INTO A MAN?
WHAT WAS FORGOTTEN?
GIVE UP?
DID HE REMEMBER THE TIMES
THAT I HELD HIM IN THE SPIRIT
AND SPOKE TO HIM THAT HE WAS A GIFT
FROM HIS PARENTS TO ME?
DID HE FORGET THAT I HELD HIM
AND SPOKE OF THE PROMISE THAT HE WOULD BECOME?
WILL HE EVER REMEMBER THE TIMES
WHEN HE WAS HURT AND I COMFORTED HIM?
FOR I WAS WITH THIS YOUNG MAN
THROUGH GOOD AND BAD
AND YET, IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO REMEMBER
THE PHYSICAL REALM
BUT I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WITH HIM
AND WILL BE UNTIL THE END
WHEN THE PHYSICAL REALM NO LONGER PROVIDES
THE COMFORT THAT TRULY SOOTHES
I WILL BE THERE IN SPIRIT TO HOLD HIM
AND THEN ONE DAY HE WILL REMEMBER THE TIMES
OF HIS BOYHOOD AND YOUTH WHEN I HELD HIM IN THE SPIRIT
AND SPOKE TO HIM GREAT THINGS
IT WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN FOREVER
ONLY AS LONG AS THE PHYSICAL REALM IS DOMINANT
ONLY THEN

I AM
WITH YOU ALWAYS, SON
ALWAYS
I'M ALWAYS SPEAKING
TO YOU OF MY GREAT LOVE FOR YOU
I'M CONSTANTLY PREPARING YOU FOR YOUR WORK IN MY KINGDOM
I'M WHOLLY THERE FOR YOU AT ALL TIMES
I AM!

I NEED YOU!

"You’re my only reason,
You’re my only truth
I need you like water
Like breath, like rain
I need you like mercy
from Heaven’s gate
There’s a freedom in your arms
that carries me through
I need you

You’re the hope that moves me
to courage again
You’re the love that rescues me
when the cold winds rage
and it’s so amazing
‘cause that’s just how you are
and I can’t turn back now
‘cause you’ve brought me too far

I need you
Oh yes, I do”
"I Need You" - Leann Rimes


AND SO MY YOUNG WORKERS
WILL EACH ONE DAY CRY OUT,
"I NEED YOU"
FOR THE PHYSICAL REALM WILL NO LONGER
BE ABLE TO COMFORT THEM
I PULL AWAY THE LOVE OF THIS WORLD
UPON THOSE WHO MUST KNOW ME COMPLETELY
ONE DAY THEY ARE LOVED AND THE NEXT
THE LOVE IS ALL REMOVED
HARSH IT SEEMS TO THOSE WHO WATCH IT HAPPEN
BUT THERE IS A GREATER SCHEME OF THINGS THAT MUST DEVELOP
A CHILD MUST LEARN THAT I AM THEIR FATHER
AND I WILL PROVIDE ALL THAT THEY NEED
BUT THEY WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE MY DIRECT PROVISION
WITH THE WORLD INTERRUPTING
NEVER

AND SO I PULL AWAY AND AWAY AND AWAY
ALL THAT BRINGS THEM JOY AND FULFILLMENT
AND AT FIRST, THE TEARS DO NOT COME
FOR SURELY I WILL REPLACE WHAT WAS TAKEN AWAY
IF I AM A GOOD GOD
BUT SORRY, PEOPLE
I AM THE BEST
AND I DO WHAT IS BEST FOR MY PEOPLE
I PROVIDE ALL THAT IS NEEDED
I GIVE ALL OF MYSELF
TO THOSE WHO WILL COME TRULY SEEKING
AND THOSE OF MY LEADERSHIP
MUST COME FORSAKING ALL OTHERS
ALL OTHER FORMS OF COMFORT
AND DEPEND DIRECTLY ON ME
FOR SOLACE AND LOVE
AND THUS YOU HAVE
A BOND THAT WILL NEVER BE BROKEN
NEVER

AND SO MY SERVANT
CRIES OUT ON A VERY DIFFICULT DAY,
"GOD, PLEASE SEND SOMEONE TO LOVE ME"
AND I ANSWER, NOT AS SHE IMAGINED
BUT MY LOVE COMES AND IT SOAKS HER THOROUGHLY
LIE STILL SHE WILL FOR A LONG, LONG TIME
FOR SHE ASKED FOR LOVE
AND I CAME, NOT WITH THE LOVE THAT IS OF THIS EARTH
AND TEMPORARY
BUT LOVE FROM MY BEING
LOVE THAT PRACTICALLY STOPS THE HEART
AND SLOWS THE ACTIVITY TO NIL
LOVE THAT PENETRATES TO THE VERY SOUL
AND CONVINCES HER THAT THERE IS NOTHING
THAT WILL COME BETWEEN MY LOVE AND HER
NOTHING

"I NEED YOU"
IS SURELY THE THEME
BUT HOW I REMOVE A PERSON FROM THIS WORLD
AND BRING UPON THEM THE SUPERNATURAL
IS NOT AN EASY THING OR ONE WHICH ANY ONE WOULD REQUEST
IF THEY KNEW THE PROCESS
BUT TRULY THERE WILL BE A FEW
ACTUALLY, A WHOLE GENERATION OF PEOPLE
WHO WILL BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO ENCOUNTER ME WHERE I AM
AND I WILL DROP THEM TO THEIR KNEES
I WILL KNOCK THEM UPON THEIR BACKS
AND THEY WILL FEEL MY SPIRIT AS IF
THEY HAVE BEEN TRANSPORTED TO ANOTHER WORLD
AND TRULY THEY HAVE
THEY HAVE COME "HOME" JUST TO BE ENERGIZED
AND SENT BACK
TO SHOW FORTH MY GLORY

WANT TO COME?
YOU CAN
LEAVE EVERYTHING BEHIND
AND ASK ME TO TAKE YOU WHERE I AM
AND I WILL
I SURELY WILL

THE SCHOOL OF PROMISE

"Parents, Teachers Take a Leap of Faith”
"The post-dispatch is following the development of the
St. Louis Charter School through its first year.”
St. Louis Sunday Post-Dispatch

A NEW SCHOOL BEGINS - A CHARTER SCHOOL
AND THE PARENTS AND TEACHERS ARE EXCITED
AND A LITTLE APPREHENSIVE
AND THAT'S THE WAY IT IS WITH NEW BEGINNINGS
BUT WE MUST HAVE NEW BEGINNINGS WHEN THE OLD
DOES NOT QUITE "CUT IT" ANY LONGER
THE PARENTS AND TEACHERS ARE LOOKING FOR A BETTER WAY
TO TEACH THEIR CHILDREN
SO THEY BEGIN A NEW SCHOOL

AS A PARENT AND A TEACHER
I AM STARTING A CHARTER SCHOOL
FOR ANYONE WHO DESIRES TO COME AND LEARN
WILL IT BE DIFFICULT?
OH - MOST CERTAINLY
BUT THE LESSONS THAT ARE LEARNED
ARE SURELY LEARNED FOR A LIFETIME

I HAVE TEACHERS
ABOUT THIS EARTH WHO CAN TRAIN A PERSON
ONLY SO FAR INTO THE DEPTHS OF ME
REMEMBER: A TEACHER CAN ONLY TAKE YOU
AS FAR AS THEY HAVE GONE
AND SO, LOOK ABOUT AND HOW FAR CAN THE TEACHERS
ABOUT THIS EARTH TAKE ONE WHO EARNESTLY
DESIRES TO KNOW MY VERY HEART?
I AM
THE ONE TO BRING YOU INTO MY HEART
I AM
THE TEACHER OF YOUR SOUL
I AM
THE ONE WHO GUIDES AND TEACHES
I AM
THE TEXTBOOK
THERE IS TRULY NONE OTHER
COME AND LEARN
SCHOOL BEGINS AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE
WITH YOUR HEART WIDE OPEN
I WILL TEACH YOU ALL THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
I WILL BE YOUR ALL IN ALL
COME
I WILL SURELY WRITE MY LAWS AND DECREES UPON YOUR HEART
SO THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO CONSULT WITH MAN
BUT WILL KNOW YOU ARE A PERSON OF HONOR
BECAUSE I WILL TELL YOU SO
COME AND LEARN
I AM GENTLE BUT THOROUGH
AND WHEN YOU PASS MY CLASS
YOU ARE TRULY READY TO
REIGN

"SWEET KISSES"

"All I really need is sweet kisses
that’s what moves me
heals me and touches me down to my soul”
Sweet Kisses” - Jessica Simpson

"SERVE THE LORD WITH FEAR AND REJOICE WITH TREMBLING.
KISS THE SON, LEST HE BE ANGRY AND YOU BE
DESTROYED IN YOUR WAY . . . "
New International Version Bible - Psalm 2:11,12

I KISS MY PEOPLE WITH A KISS OF JOY
I KISS MY PEOPLE WHO ARE TRULY MINE
WITH GREAT DELIGHT
I KISS THEM AND HEAL THEIR SOUL
I KISS THEM AND THEY KNOW MY LOVE THROUGH MY TOUCH

HOW DO YOU KISS ME, MY PEOPLE?
DO YOU KISS
AS A CHILD MUST KISS THEIR GRUMPY GREAT AUNT
OR DO YOU KISS
AS A CHILD KISSES THE TOP OF A KITTEN'S HEAD?
DO YOU KISS ME
WITH DELIGHT FOR ALL THAT I HAVE DONE
OR DO YOU KISS EXPECTING MORE?

HAVE YOU EVER READ THE ABOVE VERSE
IN PSALMS AND WONDERED
WHAT IT MEANT?

"KISS THE SON - LEST HE BE ANGRY . . . "

THAT'S STRONG WORDS
FOR SIMPLY DENYING A SHORT FORM OF AFFECTION
BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY AND DISCONTENT?
MOST WILL FAIL TO SHOW ANY AFFECTION
I WILL KNOW YOUR HEART BY HOW YOU TURN TO KISS ME
I KNOW YOUR HEART TOWARD ME
BY YOUR DESIRE TO WRAP ME IN YOUR LOVE
OR HOLD ME AT A DISTANCE

SO MANY THINK WITH PASSION
THAT THEY CAN SURELY MANIPULATE ME
INTO SERVING THEM AND GIVING THEM
ALL THAT THEY WANT
HOW DO YOU THINK THAT THEY WOULD KISS ME?
YES, LIKE A SMALL CHILD KISSES
HIS GREAT, GRUMPY AUNT WITH REMORSE
BUT I LONG FOR THOSE WHO KNOW THAT I HAVE ALREADY GIVEN
THE BEST OF GIFTS - MY LIFE LAID DOWN
AND I AM DESERVING OF GREAT LOVE

THERE ARE THE KISSES
THAT A SMALL CHILD GIVES IN AFFECTION
TOWARD SOMETHING PRECIOUS
AND I LONG FOR THOSE KISSES, TOO
BUT WHAT I LOOK FOR AND LONG FOR
IS THE KISS OF A LOVER
THAT HAS GIVEN AS MUCH AS I HAVE GIVEN
TO OUR RELATIONSHIP
AND KISSES WITH ABANDON

I ASK YOU A SIMPLE QUESTION:

WHEN YOU STAND AT THE ALTAR ON YOUR WEDDING DAY,
HOW DO YOU WANT YOUR SPOUSE TO KISS YOU?

LIKE THEY WOULD A GRUMPY AUNT
OR UPON THE HEAD LIKE A CHILD KISSES A KITTEN
OR AS JUDAS KISSED ME TO SYMBOLIZE HIS BETRAYAL?
HOW WILL YOU KISS YOUR SPOUSE?
WILL YOU KISS YOUR SPOUSE WHILE AWARE
OF ALL THOSE WATCHING?
EVEN AS THE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE LAID ONE
UPON THE LIPS OF HIS WIFE
THE AUDIENCE WATCHED AND WAITED FOR HIM
TO BREATHE AGAIN
IT WAS A KISS, BUT MORE . . .

KISS ME WITH PASSION, MY PEOPLE
KISS ME AND SHOW ME THAT YOU WILL NEVER LEAVE ME
KISS ME SO THAT I WILL KNOW LOVE ABUNDANT
KISS ME IN INNOCENCE AND SINCERITY
BUT MOSTLY
KISS ME WITH PASSION

FOR I AM THE ONE WHO PAID FOR YOUR SOUL
I AM THE ONE WHO LAID UPON THE CROSS
AND ENDURED INSULTS TO REDEEM YOU
SO THAT THIS DAY
YOU MAY COME BEFORE ME
AND KISS ME PASSIONATELY

COME AND SING TO ME,

"And I can see Your Face
Your kiss I still can taste
Not a memory erase

Oh I see Your star shining down on me
and I’d do anything
if I could just be where You are
Where You and I will be together
Once again we’ll be dancing in the moonlight . . .
and You’ll be smiling back at me
Only then will I be free
Then I can be
where You are”
"Where You Are" - Jessica Simpson

ANOTHER LAND

"Mothers and fathers had only a few days in which to fill a simple
suitcase with clothing and family keepsakes for the long journeys that
their children would be making alone. There seemed even less time
to pack into a child’s head and heart the lessons they had assumed
there would be a lifetime to teach.

Yet in Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia in 1938 - 1939, that was the agonizing task facing Jewish parents who signed their children up for the kindertransports, a massive humanitarian effort overseen by the British
that allowed 10,000 kids to flee their homelands (and the coming Holocaust) by boarding trains bound for England and waiting foster homes. Every parent promised their child, ‘We will soon come and follow.’ It was a
promise few would be able to keep.”
“Into the Arms of Strangers” - People magazine

THE CHILDREN WERE TAKEN TO ANOTHER LAND
TO SAFETY
THE PARENTS SAID THEIR GOODBYES AND HOPED FOR THE DAY
THAT THEY WOULD BE JOINED TOGETHER AGAIN
BUT FEW SAW THEIR CHILDREN AGAIN
FOR THE PARENTS WERE USHERED ONTO TRAINS
WITH A DIFFERENT DESTINATION
THE FINAL DESTINY OF DEATH ITSELF

LOOK AT THE TRAIN
THE SCHOOL THAT I AM FORMING THIS DAY
MOSTLY THE YOUTH WILL CLIMB ABOARD
AND THEY WILL COME WILLINGLY FOR MY SPIRIT WITHIN THEM
WILL ASSURE THEM OF THEIR SAFETY IN THE NEW LAND
BUT THINK, PARENTS
THINK HARD
DO YOU WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND TO BE BOARDED
ON ANOTHER TRAIN
AND NOT END UP WHERE YOUR CHILDREN
WILL LIVE IN UTTER JOY AND LOVE?
YOU HAVE THE CHOICE
THERE IS NOT AN AGE LIMIT
TO BOARD MY TRAIN OF THE KINGDOM
BUT YOU MUST LEAVE BEHIND MUCH
JUST AS THE CHILDREN COULD TAKE VERY LITTLE WITH THEM
YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO TAKE MUCH ON THIS JOURNEY
ANYTHING THAT DISTRACTS YOU IN THE NEW LAND
IS TOO MUCH BAGGAGE FOR THE JOURNEY
COME ALONG FOR THE JOURNEY
I INVITE YOU THIS DAY
I DO
FOR YOU SEE
I WANT YOU TO COME TO A LAND OF SAFETY
A PLACE OF HEARING MY VOICE AND OBEYING
THE TRAIN OF THE RIGHT PATH THAT KEEPS YOU
IN MY ARMS OF SAFETY

WILL YOU COME?
THE CHILDREN ARE BOARDING ALREADY
THEY ARE ANXIOUS AND EXCITED FOR THE NEW LAND
EVEN THOUGH THEY KNOW SO LITTLE ABOUT IT

YOU MAY COME, TOO
WON'T YOU?




#287
ONE SMALL CHANGE


THE ADDRESS WAS GIVEN FOR THE FOUNTAIN
OH BOY - NOW WE CAN WRITE AND ASK QUESTIONS
BUT A PROBLEM AROSE AND THE MAIL WAS RETURNED
MY SERVANT LOOKS HEAVENWARD WITH THAT QUESTIONING LOOK
WHY, INDEED, WOULD I ALLOW AN ERROR LIKE THAT TO OCCUR?
WHY?
BECAUSE I HAVE A POINT TO PROVE

AS THE ADDRESS WAS GIVEN
IT WAS STATED TO SEND TO A POST OFFICE BOX
WHEN IN REALITY, THE FINE PRINT STATED THAT THE ADDRESS
MUST BE SENT TO ONLY THE WORDS BELOW:
"PMB"
JUST SOMETHING SO SIMPLE CAN STOP THE MAIL
AND SEND IT BACK TO THE ORIGINAL OWNER

DO YOU EVER FEEL
AS IF YOU PRAY IN EARNEST AND THAT I DON'T HEAR YOU?
IT SEEMS AS THOUGH
I SEND YOUR "MAIL" BACK TO YOU WITHOUT OPENING IT
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
IS THERE A TITLE THAT YOU MUST HOLD
SO THAT I WILL HEAR YOUR WORDS?
DO I LOOK FOR A CERTAIN ANXIETY LEVEL
OR A MARK OF HEARTFELT SINCERITY
TO ALLOW YOU TO TALK WITH ME?

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?

"IF MY PEOPLE, WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME,
WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY
AND SEEK MY FACE
AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS,
THEN
I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN
AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND."
New International Version Bible - 2 Chronicles 7:14

WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS?
WHAT IS THE EXACT "ADDRESS"?

1ST
HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE ME
DO NOT COME AS IF I OWE YOU A FAVOR
DO NOT COME AS IF YOU ARE A SPIRITUAL GIANT
AND DESERVE AN ANSWER
COME AS A SMALL CHILD WITH A REQUEST
BEFORE A LOVING FATHER AND THAT IS ALL
IF YOU COME IN ARROGANCE
YOU WILL NEVER GAIN ENTRANCE
TO MY THRONE

2ND
COME SEEKING MY FACE
WHICH MEANS TO SEEK MY PERFECT WILL
NOT JUST YOUR REQUEST IN A SITUATION
ASK TO KNOW MY WILL BEFORE YOU SPURT OUT YOUR DEMANDS
IF YOU ASK ACCORDING TO MY WILL
YOU WILL SURELY HAVE AN ANSWER
DO YOU KNOW WHY SO MANY PEOPLE PRAY FOR SO LONG?
MANY TIMES BECAUSE THEY ARE EITHER TRYING
TO CHANGE MY MIND OR CONVINCE ME THAT THEY KNOW
WHAT IS BEST IN A SITUATION
QUICK SOLUTION:
FIND OUT MY WILL AND SIMPLY DECLARE IT
I WILL ALWAYS STAND WITH MY PERFECT WILL
AND WILL COMPLETE IT IN MY PERFECT TIMING

3RD
TURN FROM YOUR WICKEDNESS
WHEN YOU ARE ALLOWING ALL KINDS OF EVIL
WITHIN YOUR LIFE
I WILL NOT DRAW NEAR TO HEAR YOUR PRAYERS
OR TO SPEAK TO YOU

WHEN YOU FILL YOUR LIFE WITH FILTH
FROM THIS WORLD
OR RELIGION THAT IS NOT BIRTHED IN ME
THERE IS NO ROOM LEFT FOR ME TO ENTER YOUR LIFE
AND I WILL KEEP MY DISTANCE
CLEAN OUT YOUR HEART, MIND AND SOUL
AND THEN COME BEFORE ME TO BE FILLED
WITH MY PRESENCE
AND THEN WE CAN TALK

***
SERVANT, WHAT DID YOU THINK
WHEN YOU FOUND OUT ABOUT THE ADDRESS?
YOU KNEW THAT I HAD A PLAN
NOTHING IS A MISTAKE WHEN I GOVERN YOUR ACTIONS
YOU KNEW THAT EVEN THIS WOULD BENEFIT MY KINGDOM
IS THE FOUNTAIN OPEN?
YES, IT IS OPEN
BUT THE ADDRESS MUST BE WRITTEN CORRECTLY
AND
MY EARS ARE OPEN TO MY PEOPLE THIS DAY
BUT THE CONDITION OF THE HEART MUST BE CORRECT

SHALOM, SERVANT?

Shalom, my Friend
for You see I have walked this road with You for so long
and as long as You hold my hand, I know that all will be well
For Your plans are so high above my thought processes
and this is truly Your "game" and only You know how to
WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP
I fully submit all that I am to You
for the hatred increases from those who will not embrace You
but Your arms are sufficient to cover me and bring me to a place
where I am fully loved
I love You, my Friend
I do

AND I, DEAR FRIEND, LOVE YOU
FOR THE TROUBLES MOUNT WHEN YOU OBEY
AND YOU SEEK REFUGE BENEATH MY WINGS
YOU CLIMB UPON MY LAP
AND PRESS YOUR CHEEK AGAINST MINE
AND WE CRY TOGETHER OVER THE HARDNESS OF THIS WORLD
BUT EXPECT NOT THIS WORLD TO CHANGE
BUT I AM ALWAYS HERE WITH YOU
AND I WILL HOLD YOU TIGHTLY AGAINST ME
AND YOU WILL HEAR MY HEARTBEAT AND KNOW THAT I AM PLEASED
WITH YOUR LOVE FOR ME
I AM PLEASED
I AM SO UTTERLY PLEASED
STAY CLOSE, LITTLE FRIEND
AND KNOW THAT THERE WILL STILL BE RAINBOWS
ON THESE RAINY DAYS
THERE WILL STILL BE SUNSHINE WHEN THE SKY APPEARS BLACK
AND THERE WILL STILL BE LOVE
WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT
I PROMISE!

*********
God, I have discovered this night the passage to the PASSION for me
I know that it will be a gift from You
but there is a relinquishment that I, too, must make
Even as I have progressed and obeyed You in all that You have spoken to me
there has been, at times, a hesitancy to do Your will
for deep within I have still hoped for love to be a reward
and now, this day, I lay that upon the altar, for the love may come through people
or it may not
but I have a job to do and as You proved this day
Your Love surely is enough for me
Will You please take from me this desire that I have had to be loved by others
and replace it with a PASSION to do Your work?
I remember well going to a couple prayer meetings
and being kicked out midway through the second one
After crying and trying to take a long walk to let go of it
I decided that night that it was an honor to be kicked out for the Anointing
which was on me was much too strong for the religious in the group
I asked You that night to make the Anointing upon me so strong
that I would be kicked-out as soon as I arrived to meetings
This is a similar circumstance and tonight I see so clearly where I have failed You
I have hoped to receive through people Your Love when I have delivered Your words
even though that was not the reason that I obeyed
I hoped that it would be a reward, but tonight I was reading
an account of how people viewed You
They said that You were like a "splinter in the soul"
and I, too, think that people view me the same way
but tonight, I see my shallowness and ask You to take me so deep in Your PASSION
that only Your Truth and pleasing Your Heart is important to me
I'm sorry for the times when I have balked
Even tonight a letter lies upon my desk as I wait for You to tell me to send it
I know that I will not receive love in return
but I lay it in Your Hands and I am ready to send it now
Forgive me, my Lord

AND SO YOU SEE, YOUNG ONE
WHERE THE PASSION COMES FROM
IT IS NOT SIMPLY A GIFT
BUT IN THE SURRENDERING OF YOUR YEARNINGS AND DESIRES
WILL THE PASSION FOR ME
EXPLODE
FOR I WILL TAKE UP THE ROOM FOR WHICH YOU HELD OPEN TO RECEIVE LOVE
AND I WILL FILL THAT SPACE WITH MY LOVE AND MY TRUTH
AND YOU WILL BE AS A WALKING "TIME-BOMB"
READY TO EXPLODE WHEN I GIVE THE NOD
THIS WILL BE AN ENTIRELY NEW EXPERIENCE FOR YOU, CHILD
EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE OBEYED ALL MY COMMANDS
WORK WILL HAPPEN FASTER
THE HATRED WILL COME TOWARD YOU
BUT YOU WILL NOT NOTICE AS MUCH
FOR YOUR EYES WILL BE UPON MINE
AND YOUR HEART WILL BE FOUND PROTECTED WITHIN MINE
EVEN THIS DAY I SHOWED YOU A SMALL FRAMED PICTURE WHICH SIMPLY SAID

“DANCE AS IF NO ONE IS WATCHING
LOVE AS IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN HURT”

AND THAT IS HOW IT WILL BE, FRIEND
FOR YOU SOUGHT AND HOPED FOR LOVE
BUT I TOOK AWAY YOUR LAST RAY OF HOPE
AND YOU SIMPLY RETURNED TO ME, EMPTY
AND I FILLED YOU WITH MY LOVE
I SET YOU IN THE HEAVENLIES AND POURED MY BEST UPON YOU
BUT TONIGHT I WILL BEGIN TO GIVE YOU A NEW PASSION
LOVE MAY COME AND YOU WILL SURELY HAVE ROOM FOR IT
BUT YOU WON'T WAIT FOR IT OR HOPE FOR IT
OR HESITATE TO FINISH A MISSION BECAUSE HATE WILL RETURN TO YOU
YOU WILL BE PERFECTLY FREE TO DO MY BIDDING
WITH GREAT POWER AND PASSION


Oh boy!
