Wisdom of the Ages

The wisdom of the ages is the wisdom of the moment. Consecrate your moment, and you consecrate your life.

Meditation Thought: “…nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” (Matthew 26:39)

“These things I tell you: The wisdom of the ages is the wisdom of the moment. The knowledge you need is in you through the Spirit operating as you make possible His operation in your life by yielding your will to Mine. Consecrate your moment, and you consecrate your life. Use all available means to release your faith fully, to receive Divine Revelation and Power. The Word, the WORD, releases your faith. Acting on the Word releases the works.

Encased in My Spirit, powered by My Spirit, in harmony with My Spirit, – then you are the person standing in the gap, connecting Me to the world. Oh, my loved one, trust Me. I am your loving Father: all joy is Mine to be recognized by you as I truly am. My joy shall be your joy if you believe this, if you act on this, if you expect this. Peace, Peace, Peace, My love.”

The Definition of Peace

Many are willing to do some things My way – but few are willing to do all things My way.

Meditation Thought: ““For many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14)

“Do it My way! If you seek to have Me be your sure guide, your loving host, your caring companion, your power in the journey of your life in human form – do it My way! Not the world’s way or your way – but My way: the way of the Word, the way of righteousness, the way of love, the way of forgiveness, the way of giving, giving, giving – and then giving more.

So few are chosen because so few choose My way totally. Many are willing to do some things My way – but few are willing to do all things My way. Only one tiny flaw in the whole can ruin the whole: this is why you must not pick and choose areas to do it My way or your way, but in every area do it My way.

My peace I give to you when you yield your will to mine.

My love I give to you freely.

My grace I give to you freely.

My blessing I give to you freely.

But My peace I give to you only as you yield your will to Mine, as you seek My forgiveness for the unyielded parts. For My Spirit within you must be at one with your spirit to bring harmony with Me – and harmony with Me is the definition of pease.”

Freedom in Belonging

Look to each moment with enthusiasm, knowing it holds a key to unlock a new secret of the kingdom.

Meditation Thought: “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14)

To such… looking with wonder, delighted in all the variety they find around them, excited to discover something new, open to knowledge, seeking to understand the world around them, seeking to understand themselves.

Come – come like a child to explore the kingdom – see it as a child sees the physical world: eager for every detail, rushing to learn about the latest discovery, pondering as to how it fits with the knowledge already stored away.

Look to each moment with enthusiasm, knowing it holds a key to unlock a new secret of the kingdom, as it fits together with all that is in your spirit, your mind, your emotions, your body.

“Seek ye first the kingdom” – for it is in the kingdom that the total truth lies: the truth that will make you free – not in bondage to your own self, not in bondage to another, not in bondage to the world. No, but free to peace, free to seek your purpose, free to pursue knowledge reserved for those who believe that in the kingdom is the fulfillment for which they long.

An Inheritance of Love

God’s “family crest” is love.

Meditation Thought: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. (Matthew 5:9)

Love begets peace, love is born of God. Therefore as love creates peace where there was not peace, it is God’s love passed on to the peacemaker which makes them the child of God, as the child of God gives that love on to others.

God gives an inheritance of love to the person who accepts that inheritance; as that person in turn gives love as their bequest to their fellowmen, and they accept it, peace reigns. The peacemaker is automatically recognized as God’s child, for God’s “family crest” is love – and where there is love, the love puts the loving one in the position of being recognized as having descended from the house of “God”.

Darkness Dispelled

I am within you and therefore with you.

Meditation Thought: “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)

“Blessed are those who trust Me as they mourn for they shall be comforted by love so deep, miracles so large, blessings so abundant, that they shall rejoice in the mourning, praising My Name. For out of ashes rises My glory for all to see and praise. There is a rhythm, but whether you are in the trough or on the peak, I am within you and therefore with you, moving you – in troughs, yes, as well as peaks – but always the movement directs us toward our purpose: communion in deeper fellowship through eternity; a surer knowledge of true love and the expression of that love.

The dark of the mourning shall be dispelled by My grace and My love, and the light of My glory shall make your life a shining through the sacrifice of My Son, who brought into focus the misty mystery of My will for My people. Look into the clear Truth He has revealed to those who turn to where the Truth lies. Study It, ponder It, absorb It; Truth is the fusion of My Word and My Spirit and all power for good is released through the acknowledgement and acceptance into very fiber of your being – spirit, mind, body and emotions – of It.

Willing

Willing to love instead of hate, love instead of rest, willing to love instead of claim honor and glory,

Meditation Thought: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:3)

“Blessed are the humble spirits, for they do not overwhelm My Spirit, but yield to it – this is the kingdom of heaven, and this is their reward for yielding their spirit to Mine. The ‘kingdom of heaven’: a different kingdom from the world! The humble spirit with the possession of the wealth of the kingdom is richer by far than the richest person in the world. Only the riches of the kingdom provide lasting treasure, and treasure to bring joy now and forever too.

Hold fast to all that you possess in the kingdom by keeping your spirit humble – willing to listen to Me, willing to act upon My Word, willing to love instead of hate, love instead of rest, willing to love instead of claim honor and glory, Your riches here and in eternity shall be as grains of sand by the sea if your spirit is humble.”

Opening a Bud in Life

If My promises are within you, then My works shall be surrounding you!

Meditation Thought: “Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24)

“Take hold of My Word, clutching it tightly with your mind – for attached to My Word in your mind is a connecting link called ‘faith’ which has at the other end the power of My Spirit to move upon that Word in your mind.

  1. Place the Word (promise) in your mind.
  2. Place the connecting rod of faith (the action on your part which announces to Me that you do believe My Word).
  3. Envision the promise having come into reality in the realm of the physical – clinging to that image, despite all evidence.

Embrace Romans 8:28 and Mark 11:24, first as words, then as images in your mind. If My promises are within you, then My works shall be surrounding you! Peace; reap peace from the sowing of My Word in your mind and the sowing of righteousness in your heart. And joy! Reap joy as My Words unfold as the opening of a bud in your life; the fragrance is released more fully as My works expand the petals of your life, moving them away from your ego and self-will as the center of your bloom.”

Kingdom Tour

Allow Me to take you on a tour of My Kingdom, within and without, and all about.

Meditation Thought: “Come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)

“Let me clasp you in My arms of gentle love, and take you where I will – for My love for you will bring you joy untold. Relax, and allow yourself to move with ease along the paths I take. My delight is to gently show you, teach you, enjoy you as you discover the Truth and allow that knowledge to change you into a more pure image of the Father – a closer image to Me: an image inspired by the Spirit as more fitting as His dwelling place.

Conceive the most beautiful, awe-inspiring pictures and thoughts of your mind, for through these can the Spirit work in every part of your being, using emotions and actions to do the Father’s will. You have asked – and I have come to abide with you as long as you desire Me – not as a guest, but as your beloved.”

“My beauty and My works know no bounds: Shown in the depths of the Grand Canyon, to the heights of Pikes’ Peak, across the ocean’s expanse – if these expressions of My works are visible in the world, cannot you trust that the far more beautiful and expansive Spiritual expressions of My works are as real?

Allow Me to take you on a tour of My Kingdom, within and without, and all about – only follow Me, follow Me: the price you pay shall bring you more value than you have ever received for any purchase. You pay by yielding your will to Mine, and you receive eternal joy and peace.”

Will you do your part?

Whenever you have an opportunity to express love, to right a wrong, to make the dirty clean, to clothe the naked, feed the hungry, comfort the sick and the dying, share the knowledge of My love and power and desire to be a good Father, there is your task. Delight in it!

Meditation Thought: “O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God! (Psalm 83:1)

Dear God, if you do not “speak” to me in some manner – communicate with me – then I cannot know You. If I do not know You, I cannot understand You; I cannot please You. Therefore, Lord, make Yourself known to me!

If You do not act, then how can Your children evolve into what they should become? We are too weak to do what needs to be done to make the world the place it should be – the place where all have abundance, and peace and joy.

The Father’s Response:
“I have spoken clearly. The words are vibrating – they will be clear when ears are tuned to the vibrations.

Fret not that you do not always hear clearly or accurately. Try your best, and you will hear enough to make you shout for joy, live in peace, live an abundant life, and be a blessing to many.

I do not stand over you with a whip, ready to flail out at you for each error; I stand by you, with My hand outstretched, ready to steady you and set you on the right course. Knowing this – take heart, and energetically go to your tasks; very seldom do you not know what task is to be done. Whenever you have an opportunity to express love, to right a wrong, to make the dirty clean, to clothe the naked, feed the hungry, comfort the sick and the dying, share the knowledge of My love and power and desire to be a good Father, there is your task. Delight in it! Whatever you are doing, when you do it with a willing heart, as expressing your love to Me, it is right for you in every way. For that task is enhancing your spirit, keeping your mind alert, exercising your body to promote good health, and is the lesson of the moment, the method by which I can lead you gently along the path to fuller understanding of all of life.

Cast off your petulant attitude of resenting, or at least not enjoying, your tasks. They should be your delight, and you should eagerly look for all that can be observed concerning them. In this way you will learn much about Me, about you, about the world and about the kingdom. The more you know, the happier you will be – and the more pleased I will be with My beloved child.

Go now, thinking with the mind of Christ, living with the emotion of the Father, and moving with the power of the Spirit. The Way shall be prepared for you. Your help shall be available to you. Only choose to follow Jesus, who did the will of the Father, and thus transformed much of the world. My other children are needed to complete he transformation. Will you do your part?

The Key to Peace, Joy and Love

In this type of love, “enemies” are converted to friends, strife is dissolved into harmony, war is stopped and peace reigns.

Meditation Thought: “Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them… Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you – live in harmony with one another.” (Romans 12:6,12,14,16)

There is an attitude which is the proper one for all who seek to be the loving, obedient, willing children of God; it is a reflection of our Father’s attitude: TOTAL LOVE. Love which allows the beloved to choose, love which does not condemn, but teaches a better way – mostly by example. Love which recognizes the desirability and the reality of each member being unique – and not only accepting the uniqueness, but enhancing the qualities of it which will bring glory to the Father.

In this type of love, “enemies” are converted to friends, strife is dissolved into harmony, war is stopped and peace reigns. The kingdom is superimposed upon the earth: the tawdry places are made shining clean, selfish motives give way to commitment to the common good, the wealthy eagerly aid the poor – and the poor accept the aid as a “talent” – to be used to increase the wealth for all, not accepting it as a gift for self only; as Paul states it, all of these behavioral patterns shall result in: “loving one another with brotherly affection.”

Is this not the purpose for which Jesus came? Is it not the purpose for which life takes on meaning for us, and richness, and joy?

It is in the knowing that this is the key to our heart’s desire that we are able to use our gifts gladly: giving joyfully and generously. For in loving one another in brotherly affection, we fulfill God’s will for us – we cannot love our fellow creatures without loving Him who created all. To love and to be loved is the central theme of Christianity. It is also the will of the Father, the joy of the Father and the sons, and the one way which leads to peace and fulfillment.

I wanted peace,
I wanted joy,
I wanted love.
I said “Give”,
Give me peace,
Give me joy,
Give me love.”

The answer came:
“When you change
‘You give me peace,
You give me joy,
You give me love,’

To

‘I give you peace,
I give you joy,
I give you love,’

You shall possess
please and joy, and love.”
