Another unmistakable and profound message came to me from our Lord Jesus!
Last evening about the same time I was tired but determined to send out a message to a reply I received late yesterday afternoon to my previous comment I made the day before yesterday! Now if you like jigsaw puzzles as much as I do you will understand how good a feeling it is to see pieces to an evolving puzzle seemingly falling into place!
I believe without a doubt God is making His will known and leading the way here in what to me is as I call it connecting the dots in converging converging conversations and interacting events; and to me there is nothing I love seeing happen more because this is what the Lord’s Prayer states succinctly being most imperative; Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven! What’s more I’m so truly humbled and sorry at the same time because I’m nobody yet God allows and actually intervenes this way in my life and I just say Lord, I’m not worthy but I know you’ve shown such amazing grace and love to me that my heart is wanting to burst with sorrow and shame before you for not being the best person because I tell myself even though I’ve never been truly bad or evil I hate that I screwed up or not done better for you; and just been a fallen human being which I know you understand it all far better than I can fathom, the length and breath of it all the enormous gravity of failure that hangs over mankind and yet they produce so much more of it, far worse in many cases than all past transgressions and most frown or walk around with heads held high.
But just like this Scripture tells us; “9What then? Are we any better? Not at all. For we have already made the charge that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin. 10As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one. 11There is no one who understands, no one who seeks God.” Romans 3:10
This verse is so absolutely true but yet I know you haven’t given up on us all and I have learned and witnessed what Amazing Grace you are Lord!
“Amazing grace! how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch; like me! I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see. 2. ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved; How precious did that grace appear. The hour I first believed!”
I have believed since a boy but did I really know what it was like to truly believe and know what that is like; no I only learned over time and through trials and tribulations, some serious suffering which was a blessing making sure I carried my cross as I must!
Now to clarify this more for all to understand for the sake of all, I’ve always been a good guy in most cases better than many and always wanting to protect and watch after others; I was brought up the right way and I was blessed with a good sensitive heart that many who loved me when growing up nurtured that good in me and then I quite naturally in turn did the same for others around me! But regardless sin gets us all one way or another and all fall short of the glory of God!
Now what I’m saying here should coalesce easily when I provide these couple of pieces to a puzzle or picture that God through the Holy Spirit has Divinely influenced as I and others have our hearts open to Jesus and allow the will of the Father to permeate our souls; then Jesus leads the way making it a smooth transition or at least something that we can handle.
First this text that came to me will fit very well with what I wrote last evening as you will see. These following quoted words I provide were not solicited by me at all but came to my email inbox at about the same time of evening as when I began writing last night.
“Then there are the non-believers, many of them good people. They use human intellect to put forth all the reasons why God does not Exist. Yet they, including many of their Christian counterparts who are lukewarm in their faith – will run to Me first. Their hearts will be unlocked and because they will only see what witness I bring to bear, they will know that I Call them. They won’t resist Me, unlike those stubborn souls who think they know more about the promise I made to return to present the Final Covenant, than Me.
Every task I give you, will lead to more and more nations taking up My Cross to create the one pathway towards Me. Never hesitate to walk alongside Me when I Call you, because when you respond to Me, you will destroy the power of evil. Evil may cause you pain, but when you allow Me to guide you, you can overcome any obstacle in your way.
I love you and I guide you, just as I protect My Prayer Groups around the world.

Now to what I wrote last evening that corresponds beautifully and I hope it all touches you or inspires as it has me to turn more so to our Lord for all of our needs and guidance in these extremely dangerous and troubled times and worse to come!
First of all I have to say WOW! I’m telling you this is some beautiful writing and to the heart and soul of what is going on in this world or what it’s all about and why we are here; really! You’re so right how so many people don’t connect to this or get it; as you mentioned when we are just teens or some people even into middle age and beyond, they keep fighting the Truth that is really deep inside and nothing in this world will bridge the gap or fill the void necessary to give that sense of completeness and joy which isn’t a material tangible thing as it transcends time and space but it must and does exist most assuredly; as we think our lives here in this limited material plane is the what we are an all we can be, when it’s not even scratching the surface of what exists beyond our comprehension and indeed our limited cognitive perceptions! This is where Jesus Christ can surely come in to make sure we see more than this surface value of life here, and know that He is real and absolutely wants to share all He has to offer with us out of His infinite love, and to totally fulfill us; filling us with His love and glory in a complete existence that is something that we don’t have the ability to fathom now which is why Trusting Him becomes so imperative. Because He has told us that He wants us to walk with him and follow for a while carrying our crosses in a difficult circumstance, but, He has promised us that staying on our path doing the Father’s will is the only way to live, and to everlasting life in His kingdom!
We can see how very short our time here really is comparatively speaking in the cosmic sense of space time, our being part of the universe and its vastness, yet each of us is barely a blip on the radar, just small flickering flames like candles in the breeze not much hope it would seem to really matter to the universe, and like the old saying, “here today gone tomorrow,” is really how it measures up to be a human being in a place that in terms of the entire known universe is about 13 Billion years old and the earth around 4.5 Billion. Depending on what school of thought and hard evidence we consider many scientists figure a forerunner of we humans was beginning life on earth about 6 Millions years ago and advanced to the more human form that we actually consider to be us more classically around 300,000 years ago, to be followed by actual Homo sapiens who were the actual ancestors that began civilization only about 6000 years ago!
Now I’m a bit tired at the moment and I know I brought this up for good reason which off the top of my head I want to say that the mystery and absolute awe of existence is profoundly captivating to me but when I place myself and my mere life into this perspective I have to admit if I have my wits about me, what can I actually amount to or what significance can I really have in the big picture or a universe and billions of people! Not much as I see it and you rightly mentioned how when we are very young we are so full of exuberance and dreams of making an impact or really becoming somebody so that others and maybe the whole world will say wow, you really did something with your life and you’re a kind of important person! Now I have to laugh and say I felt that and know so differently now how that doesn’t mean anything it’s all a lot of hot air and whimsical nonsense! Because say for example the universe goes on like it has been for another few Billion years and in that time the sun could become a red giant and the nearest planets including earth would be absorbed into the sun and eventually the red giant would under its own weight and gravity become a white dwarf! Just considering these concepts helps me to put my own life into perspective and realize that even all of earthly civilization amounts to nothing but a hill of beans, unless there is a lot more going on than meets the eye and that the human mind isn’t capable of fathoming!
But now that I spaced out our existence a bit in abstract terms let’s get right back down to earth and the old brass tacks as they say.
Where are you or I going with all of this scratching the surface and digging into some fascinating ideas or knowledge that even will really matter at the end of our lives here or further down the road or timeline as to the point would anyone care if there are people around millions of years from now or even just hundreds about who I was and what I did with my life? And what good would any of that matter in time when I’m dead and buried anyway! It wouldn’t matter in the scheme of material existence at all. But while looking into what you said in your commentary; maybe I can finally say what I think is the one thing that matters.
When you spoke about how when we are all very young and full of exuberance and dreams of what we will do in our future lives ahead and have such high hopes of amazing dreams and how this compelling drive is there by virtue of our wanting to make our mark on this world or leave a legacy, do something special in order to be remembered or very significant making use of all of that youthful ambition or sometimes pride. But then as the years pass and we go through transitions or even setbacks as life gets in the way or takes some twist and turn we start to see how the things we thought were so important recede into the background or our memories of our youth, and so we begin to let go of those desires or dreams perhaps becoming more practical, or actually seeing how those things are not so important to us and perhaps time is running out and we need to shift gears and get with the real program! That point you made about how we are find out that what we are really yearning for is that deep, pure and perfect love that can only come from our creator; this if you will, wake up and smell the coffee moment happens; our epiphany!
I think you nailed it down dashingly and so perfectly my Sister in Christ Jesus! You caused me to think of this Scripture immediately when I read this article essay of yours and it says so much about all of what I have written here; and what you finely tuned in on!
“10but when the perfect comes, the partial passes away. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I set aside childish ways. 12Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” 1 Corinthians 13:11
Those people you mention that say speaking about Jesus Christ and His being the Truth is all so deluded, unscientific, illogical or blinded; I can categorically and unequivocally say that I know for sure they are all of those things, and they miss the boat or point totally; they are “the blind leading the blind!” I have discovered through my own life experiences and being open to Jesus Christ my whole life that He is absolutely real and does let me know in many ways or instances; sometimes very obvious and profound ways too.
God did not create us to be lost in the massive universe to be drifting in a material plane of existence like so many wild seeds that haphazardly float about having no greater meaning or Divine planned meaning!
We were created in God’s image meaning we have this contemplative, creative and ethereal conceptualization of existence and our own place in it, which we can only see to a point on our own! But then He did provide us with great wisdom in His word, the Holy Scriptures to provide us a rudder to navigate in this big world with a destination in mind and heart that He has already told us about; which is to end up with Him and our Father in their heavenly eternal kingdom!
For now because its late in the day I think I can share some much further explanation here with a couple of my previous writings that speak to this very specifically and one in particular where I was led to some concrete evidence that Jesus Christ provided through design and Divine plan to acknowledge me and my faith in Him.
That is one that I wrote called “The Salvation Stone” will I hope confirms what you already know! And then the following essay called “Always Walking with Jesus Christ” that should be self-explanatory and again further confirmation about His presence is close at hand always; He truly wants us to seek and love Him to the best of our ability and to me this is the crux of this whole subject, of what to do with our lives and what really matters! Without Jesus Christ our lives will be empty and have no ultimate true meaning, but will only serve to be like chaff or those flickering candles in the breeze, “here today gone tomorrow!” He is our only Hope! Jesus Christ truly saves and nothing else in all of existence will save you bringing you to eternal life in Paradise!
God bless you and I will pray that something here is truly helpful to you!
