Continuity in the Connection
The Forgiveness thruway
In a soul shaking moment I have been brought into the awareness that speaks the truth and sovereign nature of our Lord and His Son Jesus Christ. I recently viewed a video that was about a young woman who was dead for 23 hours while she took a walk with the Lord Jesus Christ to view Heaven, Hell and the Rapture. The video was soul shaking if you can see the truth being bestowed by this young girl and the truth she has to share that was bestowed upon her by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In itself the video relies on this young girl’s solemn yet effectual testimony to share with all who see it the truth in what has occurred to others and what is to come. It is in this knowledge that you may say this is a story made up by a bible thumping Christian who wants to impart her own beliefs on Jesus Christ and not on truth.
It is said that your eyes are the windows to your soul. If this is true as they zoom in on this young lady I cannot see any evidence of anything but true heartfelt signature of the Lord on this young women. Once I started watching I could not stop. I wanted to see it through to the end. It speaks of truths that we have been told by our pastors and is written in the words of the Bible and the truth that we already know in our heart.
Known in your heart is the difficult part for some. For it is this with its own intrinsic nature, that beholds the very essence of our being, what we believe and our willingness to relinquish that to another, specifically Jesus Christ Himself. However, it is more far reaching than I ever thought and relies upon the continuity of the connection with the Lord in every part of your soul, your convictions, your beliefs and your actions.
In science for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. So it is with this in the truth and the responsibility required. What I mean is that once you have been given the truth, it comes with a catch; you must deliver it to others when you are called upon and even when you are not. The installation of the spirit of the Lord is within you and has been there since before you were born, of this I am sure. With that we are all created equal with the same impartation of Holy Spirit within. If and when we acknowledge it, how we use it and when we deliver it to others is part of a journey or path which you should not ignore.
To simplify the understanding of such it goes like this. Once you are born there comes an opportunity to hear the news of a savior who came to earth as the Son of our creator, God. He was sent as the final and last chance to become one with the creator by means of His Son. Prior to this event in most instances, not all, man himself always failed to acknowledge the creator as the one and only God above which there is no other. Hence, the Lord created a final opportunity for mankind to be with the Him, by the acceptance of His Son, and the acknowledgement of Him. By doing this you are promised eternal life with the creator and the Son in eternity. In order to have eternal life you must first acknowledge that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior that He died for your sins on the cross at Calvary. Second you must acknowledge that you are a sinner and repent of those sins by asking forgiveness of those sins from the Lord Jesus Christ. Third, you must forgive all others as Jesus has forgiven you. Finally once you have done this you must walk upright and humbly from that point forward since your awareness and knowledge has been brought forth. Sounds simple enough does it not?
Well my friend there is a little more to it than meets the eye at first glance. First none of this is to be taken lightly, which is predicated on where you want to spend eternity. Heaven or Hell? If you do not think Hell exists I suggest to you to pick your darkest and most succumbing day on this planet when either you asked or begged the Lord for help, or maybe not. Then multiply that a trillion fold, which should be easy enough since we have done this financially to our country which we take for granted in our complacency. Then if that is even possible for you to do, would you begin to understand where you would be going. This is no day trip. This is for the rest of eternity, not time, not in this place (which would be heaven in its worst day compared to Hell) but for the eternity. It is almost hard to comprehend because everything in our lives as we know it is based on some sort of time element. Eternity is not. It is truly forever and forever.
Second, acceptance, the true to the bone acceptance of the fact that Jesus Christ absorbed all of our sins and died on the cross at Calvary for this, on behalf of our Father, the Lord our creator. To truly come before the Cross of salvation and accept Jesus Christ as your savior and Lord, believing with your heart and your soul that He loves you and wants this for you. The bible recounts and visits all of this in many ways, settings, versions and views of all of its writers. I am sure that man has somehow left out or manipulated parts and pieces of this over thousands of years, but the core of all that it is true and is spoken and written directly for you.
Third, repentance, to know that you are a sinner no matter what and that you need and will ask forgiveness of these sins before Jesus Christ so that He may forgive you. He cannot take up the sins of your nature unless you ask Him directly for His forgiveness. It’s a connection thing, part of the wiring in the DNA He placed before you were born. You cannot no can He unwire the wiring that is in place within you. Therefore it is imperative that you can acknowledge that you are a sinner and no one before or after you except Jesus Christ Himself is any different. Not the Pope, not your pastor, not your best friend, not your wife nor your child. Simple repentance in acknowledging the fact that you are not who He is nor could you ever be.
Fourth, forgiveness, now we are cutting to the bone. This goes to the heart of hearts and to the true self from which we were created to be. Understanding the difference, accepting Jesus Christ, repentance of our sins, it’s all easy and accomplished by truthfully accepting all of which is instructed. We can do it. Forgiveness however may strike a different chord. Because true forgiveness is true forgiveness, no gray areas, either you do or you do not. You could say that you do, but internally you re-visit that which burns in your heart even though you never say it to anyone in anyplace it is there. You have not forgiven. True forgiveness creates a new attitude. Saying you did and did not multiplies itself exponentially in your outward and your inward works. These are the works of the soul, the intrinsic and internal nature of who you are and what you are. However, you are the commander in chief, you are its pilot, and you determine the beacon to follow. How you say, I have done the best I can, and just because I am not happy with what I have done and seek something better my soul is at stake. ? Yes I say. Because you have not looked deeply enough to see what the true nature of the goodness you think is. Do not mistake envy for it really belongs to me. Do not mistake jealousy for I could have had it and wish I did. When you wish from another that they do not have it or you wish form another that they have which you do not, you fulfill the tyrants siege upon your soul. The devil and his agents are at work. Further, to allow this is to perpetrate their goal and allow yourself to become party to the last thing in life you want to happen.
True forgiveness, is true forgiveness. That means that we must submit everything that has committed or we even thought committed an injury to our being soul or heart and forgive. How can we do this you ask? Ask the Lord and He will show you how. If you do not however, the worst is yet to come. No matter your position on this planet while you are still breathing the air that He sent, once you leave there is no turning back. There is no recourse. There is no one, not even the Lord Himself who can change who, what, and how you and your soul have behaved. This is your final chance to see eternity through the eyes of the Lord with unmistakable clarity. Do not dismiss this calling. If you do, your eternal fate awaits you.
Call then upon the Lord to fill you with all that is necessary to fulfill that which He has prepared for you. Do not delay. Time is of the essence.
If you take this seriously which I hope that you will, there is one more catch. Once you know you must bring this to others. It may come at a time when you k now in your heart of hearts that you should but you did not. Ask forgiveness and move forward. Just make sure that the next time you do.
God Bless All That Can Discern This in Their Heart
