THE REVELATION THAT BEGAN WITH MATTHEW 13

 

book revelations

 

Today I heard, “Check out those parables about The Kingdom is like …”.  So I did and the search began with Matthew 13.  This journey took on a meaning I’ve never heard before.  And here’s how it began.

First came the parable about the seed falling on various grounds.  And immediately my spirit said “The seed is truth.  The soil is people.”  So I went on.

Next, Jesus explains why He used parables so that everyone would NOT understand.  Yeah, I remember that revelation some time ago.  As we run around trying to make sure everyone understands exactly what scripture means, Jesus is saying not everyone will, and not only that, but He doesn’t WANT everyone to understand.  And the reason is simple.  We can’t have the wisdom of The Kingdom unless we are willing to have the relationship it takes to receive it.  We can’t piggy-back off anyone, not even a preacher.  It’s the meaning behind the oil the 5 wise virgins wouldn’t share.

Continuing in Matthew 13, the part comes when Jesus explains the first parable.  Sure enough, the soil is people.  But here he mentions that the seeds are the “Good News about The Kingdom”.  Hmmm.  Ok, that’s the truth He’s spreading.  AND when it falls on good ground it reproduces 30, 60, and 100 fold.  One person brings 30, 60 or 100 fold more people into The Kingdom.  But exactly WHAT is the good news?  Are we telling that context correctly?

Now comes the parable about the wheat and the tares.  Continuing in the same vein as before, I heard, “Still the seeds are truth, the soil is people, and tares are lies planted by the enemy.”   Well, that makes sense because it says not to pull up the lies but let them grow with the truth.  When the roots are matured and truth is harvested for the storehouse, then “reapers” will gather up the lies and burn them.

This example witnesses in my own heart.  As lies live and mature there, they eventually reveal themselves to be lies because they don’t reproduce any good thing.  I end up tearing them out of my head myself.  But if I had torn them out too early, I’d have damaged some truth growing right beside it.

I’ve found truth to be stronger, and it lasts, producing helpful wisdom I share with others.  It’s like secret keys of wisdom.  And everyone wants them.  Well … most people.  They help significantly in times of trouble, especially when we’re not sure which decision is the right one.

 

journey

 

Well now, this is an amazing journey and I’m enjoying this trip.

Next, is the parable of the tiny mustard seed which represents The Kingdom.  It grows until other creatures find comfort in it.  Huh.  I think that’s what I just said.  Yay!

Moving onward, we have a woman making bread and the yeast represents The Kingdom.  It spreads and fills the whole.  And that’s exactly the way good news flows.

Then, Jesus explains the tares and the wheat and suddenly I pause.  Now the seed represents people.  Wheat is believers and thistles are the wicked.  Whoa!  What just happened?  My whole revelation just exploded by Jesus, Himself.  Really?

Well, I’ve learned from past experience with Father that first glance is not always true.  Truth is found through The Spirit.  That’s why Jesus told parables.  Those who couldn’t connect through Spirit would never get the bottom line.  They would go happily onward believing exactly what they see in black and white.

So let’s continue with the thread Father had me following and see what happens.  Only at this juncture, we’re going to have to look inwardly and hear from Him personally or we’ll never garner the truth and fall short of the glory.

I looked up the word “people” in verse 38 and discovered that it means “sons”.  Then it hit me.  Satan never had sons.  He can’t reproduce.  He can only deceive.  That’s not the same thing as reproduction.  It’s not creation.  Satan does not have sons, only God has sons.  And if one of the references doesn’t mean sons, then the other doesn’t either.

In The Spirit, it felt like it meant a product spewed out of the heart.  Like sperm is spewed and ejected forth to produce sons, so are qualities of Spirit issued forth.  Father’s issue would still be truth and Satan’s issue would be lies.

This parable also introduces the “end of the world” and since I’ve long gotten past the problem of there being an actual end of the world, I’ve accepted that the term generally means “end of the age”.  So I pondered this.  But again I had to pull into The Spirit to know the truth.  And here’s what I found.

It wasn’t the end of the physical world, but the end of a period of philosophy in our personal lives.  It’s a level of progression that includes lies living alongside truth within us.  Just as the wheat and tares were allowed to grow up together in the field, so truth and lies grow up together inside our hearts.  Until the day comes, at the end of that age, when we recognize the truth has been productive and the lies have not.  Then we quickly uproot the lie and burn it.  And we harvest the truth for safe keeping in our storehouse.

Burning lies causes the weeping and gnashing of demons teeth.  Their plans came to nothing.  They don’t win, and never will because they don’t produce anything lasting.  And growing season always exposes them.

Demons and lies are thrown into the fire and burned.  Not people.

The really triumphantly Good News from this day’s revelations is that burning lies are destroyed forever and cannot come back to torment us.  At the end of this process, the sons of God will shine without these temptations affecting their growth.  The way will be clear.

What an amazing victory to know there is an end to this for each one of us.  And our world won’t be destroyed for it to come to pass.  The destruction is not ours but belongs to evil.  These are the last enemies to become His footstool WITHIN US.  And the new Jerusalem will have arrived on earth through us from The Kingdom within.

I know this isn’t traditional doctrine.  And it may feel so new and weird that it makes us pause.  But that’s OK.  Let’s allow it to grow and see if it produces.

Thank you for joining my journey.  Blessings on yours,

Faith

 

 

 

 

 

 

Viewpoints: from a Police Officer

my visit with a police officer

 

I took the opportunity to visit with a cop for a while the other day.  His name and other details will be kept confidential, but his story should be heard.

He was gentle, and kind although his voice was subdued with sadness, or hopelessness.  I didn’t know which.  He dreamt of being a cop as a child, and that dream solidified as a young adult when he witnessed an officer help a young couple calmly through the angry emotions of an ending relationship.  The officer disarmed their need for retaliation, and planted a seed in the heart of the young man to help others in chaos, to be a peacemaker.

SHOULD WE SCREAM AT THE WEATHER NOW?

bad weather

For years I wasn’t comfortable commanding and rebuking stormy weather, but it’s what I was taught to do.  I’d feel angry and
fearful reacting this way, and it didn’t seem completely appropriate.  Even in the worst weather, I saw amazingly beautiful cloud Continue reading SHOULD WE SCREAM AT THE WEATHER NOW?

LIVING ON VACATION!

A couple years ago Father told me to construct a sentence that described the best vacation to me. It should elicit in my heart everything that vacation felt like for me.
 
It took about a month to construct the perfect sentence because it kept evolving. The final result was this.
 
“I live in a tropical paradise of joy.”

Riding the Blood Red Horse

I had a vision of riding a horse at breakneck speed as it galloped along the edge of a cliff without touching the ground. It was made from the blood of God and I was covered from head to toe in that blood which made holding my seat on his back very tricky. I’d slip and slide and nearly fell off several times. But gradually I learned thehorse_by_horseartlover-d4n8j88 rhythm and learned how to hold on so I could ride with this amazing horse as it flew into the future. On and on it went without end. When I asked Father God how long this would continue, he only said “Well, forever, or if you prefer, I will let you know if it will change”

I learned that this was a picture of how my life would be from here on out. And I can witness that it is true. Nothing about my life is normal anymore. I exist in the miraculous all the time, constantly flying above the ground. Continue reading Riding the Blood Red Horse

WARNING, WARNING, WARNING!!!

Of my prophetic friends, I have a 50/50 chance of hearing such an announcement.  But honestly what I hear is the computer on the bridge of the starship Enterprise.

Can you hear it?  “Warning, Warning, Warning!” Yeah, ok, that’s a Trekkie thing.  Ha.  And I admit I absolutely loved that show along with all the movies and the sequel series. But I could continue to love it because I always knew the ‘warnings” meantwarning on the Enterprise complete destruction would somehow be overcome by the end of the hour through the genius of Captain Kirk, or Jean Luke Picard or Kathryn Janeway.

Butterfly

How can we be Christian and see only death, despair and destruction all around us? How can we?

Christ is Life, He is rebirth, and He is redemption. Have we forgotten? Do we look at a cocoon and not see the butterfly emerging? Do we panic and say “what horrible end is coming – the cocoon is dying”? Do we stare in disbelief and pray and plead with God to save the cocoon?

“Long Live the cocoon! Allegiance to the cocoon! Look at the cocoon’s glorious beginning! If only we could take the cocoon back to the beginning”?

Do we find someone to blame for the cocoon’s demise? And then disrespect and slander them mercilessly?

Can’t we see the butterfly? She will soar in the freedom of flight. She will flutter in a miraculous display of color.

Can’t we see the butterfly? She is right there, emerging from the dying cocoon.
