23rd Psalm

~~~ 23rd Psalm ~~~

1) "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2) He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.

3) He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

4) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.

5) Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6) Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever."

The Flesh Cannot Satisfy

"The flesh cannot satisfy the spiritual.
They are two different things. The flesh is at war with the spiritual. The natural man cannot ever replace the spiritual man.
There are celestial bodies...and terrestrial bodies. One is from above, the other, from the earth. Celestial bodies are incorruptible...they never die. Earthly bodies are constantly corrupting (rotting, aging, decomposing)...and they will die.
-pause-
Humans feed their flesh and it is never enough. More, more, more! Their bodies cry out for more food, more drink, more sex, more pleasure, more comfort!
Their spirits are also crying out, but are usually ignored. The spirit weeps for God, for love, for hope, for purpose, for passion, for life itself!
The spiritual is often mistaken as fleshly, and vice versa. The two are distinctly seperate. One is never satisfied, the other is completed by the Creator.
Of course, the bodily needs are simple to fill up and to be fed. The spirit man is more difficult. To be fed carnally, one merely has to eat, consume and feel instant gratification.
The spirit has different needs. It cries out for deeper things of life. It searches. It seeks. It mourns. It weeps.
The cry of the spirit is heart-felt. It is painful. It knows sorrow. It know loneliness. It knows rejection. It knows that is is empty. Incomplete.
The spirit wails. It screams. It is intense. It struggles. It falls. It is crushed, over and over and over again. It is stifled. It is misunderstood. It is mocked. It is feared. It is ignored. It is rare.

But...the search for the spiritial is unrelentless. It KNOWS that there is more. It feels things. It senses the outer limits. It can tell when things are different. It can recognize the atmnosphere. It knows when power is near. It can discern certain events. It can feel. It has emotion...deep emotion. It cries. It laughs. It is alive.

Flesh is flesh. It is temporary. It will not last. We all die. We will not be in these bodies forever.
Our spirits are not fleshly. They are our inner selves...the real parts of us. They last forever. We all have them. They should not be ignored.

Seek out wisdom. "Be still before Me", says the Lord. Seek him out. Look for Him. Let His Spirit touch your spirit...and let it feel alive!
Find life!
Find purpose!
Find hope!
Find passion!
Find love!"

"Mud or Gold ?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Do you want mud or gold? Mud is on the surface ... the gold is underneath. You can roll in the mud anytime, but you have to dig and search for the gold.

Mud, dirt, soil. It is common; it is easily accessed (gotten). Mud is everywhere ... it even tracks in with your shoes (footwear). To find gold, however, takes much more effort.  It is rare.

You need to search out the gold. The precious is hidden from the common. The costly is separate from the mundane. One has to dig deep into the earth to see gold veins. This ore is difficult to obtain. Therefore, it is much desired: highly priced and desired worldwide.

-pause-

On the other hand, mud is mud. It is dirty. It is common to all areas. It is of little monetary value. It is over the entire earth's surface. Dirt is 'dirt cheap'. Not many are clamoring for mud these days.

-pause-

So, what will you seek? Mud ... or gold? Will you be content with the mundane, the usual, the common, the abundant dirt under your feet? Will you value the dirt that you sweep up off the floor? Is it not fit for the trash can?

Compare the soil, the sand, the dirt of the earth ... to gold, to precious gems, to rare commodities. They are very, very different.

So which would you choose to obtain? Plenteous dirt ... or rarefied gold? You may continue to wallow in the mud, or you can begin a journey of gold digging. (Searching for riches beyond the usual everyday elements.)

The 'riches' spoken of here are analogous to the *riches* of the kingdom of God. And, the *riches* of His constant love. (God's love for us.) And, the *riches* of His favor. And, His saving power...His undeniable sovereignty ... His grace and mercy ... His truth ... His supreme power and authority ... HIS SPIRIT ... rarer than any earth-bound gold!

The King of kings (Jesus) holds ALL gold and earthly treasures in His hand. He is the ultimate *treasurer* in the supernatural realm.

He will show you where the *gold* is hidden. He will show you hidden treasures of darkness that are yet to be revealed. (Darkness here implies 'secret', as in secret riches.)

-pause-

God's riches are not as our earthly treasures. His wisdom is the best, most valuable; treasure. It is (to be) valued above rubies, or diamonds...or gold. The wisdom of the Almighty is without price: it is priceless: of utmost value (unmeasurable).
-pause-

Swine roll about in their muddy sties. They love to wallow about in the dirty material (substance).

The precious gold (as well as the 'pearl of great price') are not as freely found. There is work involved ... and much of a search also is (often) necessary. But, the reward is great for those who persist and continue in their quest for the true gold ... for the truth ... for the real Kingdom of God.

Don't give up your search. It is an adventure; often perilous, often wearying. You will be a *marked man* when you obtain any gold, for it is coveted by all. Thieves will be a constant threat, yet they 'back off' when they see Me or My Men (angels).

If you follow Me, I will help you to keep your treasure safe ... and you will trust Me more and more, as you see how I continue My relationship with you.

~~I am the Gold.~~"

End Time Visit?

"I am about to shake the world. You will know it is from Me. I am sending signs...many, many signs, to announce My visit. Fear and trembling will be upon the land. Distress and woe upon (the) sea. Skies - full of trouble.
Wonder. Shock. Awe. You will see the astonishment.
-pause-
Israel...
Army coming out of (the) north. And out of (the) west. And out (of) the east.
She will be surrounded. She will need assistance and fire power.
SOON-
*******
Fight. Fight the good fight. Fight with faith.
Mobilize the troops: on air, on sea, on land. Wait for My command.
Destiny and prophecy have foretold these events. It is the season of purpose: of *My* purpose.
Surround Israel with your prayers of love.
Though she be little and small, she has My approval; My favor. She is the time-honoured 'apple of My eye'. This is the set time. I am in planning; for the vengeance of My people.
My vindication will be fast, quick, complete.
I will punish (the) enemies of My beloved Israel. I will come with fire, and with great might.
-pause-
Hurry! For the hoofbeats approach. The four horsemen are near. Their appointments are due. It will be as I have said.
-pause-
Tremendous changes (are) imminent. Severe tidal waves, increasing. Snow storms. Hail storms. Rain storms. Wind storms. All will multiply and increase intensity. Scorching sun and *hellish* heat waves (will) come."
