When we walk along the path of righteousness with Christ our LORD and as we do not turn to the left nor the right but straight along the narrow gate, we lose sight of our surroundings along life’s arduous journey. Don’t get me wrong. It ain’t easy. Focus. You gotta focus. I’m blessed in a way ‘focusing’ is my strength. Focus on Jesus. For we are to fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith. I have been so amazed at my two daughters. There was a time when I was afraid that they would give up the good fight of faith in this ministry but it seems they are over-comers. In Christ. With Christ. With Jesus at the centre of their faith. Only Jesus. Just Jesus.
It is to my delight I have found that we have progressed in our journey as the church of our LORD Jesus who is the Christ into the glory of the LORD. In His Presence.
For those who study Scripture, we will know the story of the kings who entered into the holy of holiest place and if they did not die they had lepersy. Or just went mad.
But for us in Christ, our hope of glory, we are in His Presence and His glory falls upon us. Daily and continuously. We are alive and well in Him and Him alone. This is Christ our LORD. Jesus who the Christ. Messiah. The great I AM.
I am a God person. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Godhead, Three in ONE.
In my twenties I was saddened by the fact that I was instructed to follow Jesus. I had had a relationship with my Father who art Thou in heaven but I followed the instructions of my teacher. Of course, you know the rest of the story.
But today, when I looked back and know my heart. I love my Father.
Indeed as the years span nearly sixty years of time with God, I have had so many wonderful experiences throughout my entire life time with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. But my heart is ever looking for my Father in heaven. Not my earthly father. Whom I do love with all of my heart as he is the one who asked me to seek God for it was my turn as he was too old to do so. I suppose he did not see God like I do. He believed by faith. One day after a day at Mass, he said to me at the entrance, ‘It’s your turn now. You take over looking for God. I’m going to rest now.’ ‘OK daddy’ was my prompt reply but thinking back, I suppose he was also in God’s great plan of things to come.
My gift of sight comes directly from my mother who sees into the spirit realm. My dad was by blind faith. He believed.
Today we seek the glory of our living God. The great I AM. We stand in His Presence as He pours forth His glory down upon us in the abundance of His life. His life giving Presence. We touch His face and kiss His lips and we sup with Him in Scripture and in continual conversation. We speak and we are heard in the depths of His heart. We cry out ‘holy holy holy art the LORD God Almighty’ and He loves us. In His throneroom we kneel before Him and kiss His feet in humble adoration and He reaches down to us and lifts us up standing beside Him because HE first loved us. We are a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people set apart.
When I look at my two daughters, rather, the two daughters of our Lord, I am amazed. Yes, LORD Jesus, You are amazing.
Sometimes when you are years and years working towards advancing in the kingdom of God you do not see what is happening in your surroundings. We are all calling for the glory of the LORD to fall in this place and as we stand before Jesus we are blessed in the abundance of His blessings. There is only one stance we can all take.
Advance deeper and higher into the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is within each and every one of us.
Forward, upwards and advance.
