Explosive Enthusiasm

You are the critical “missing” or “present” ingredient…

Meditation Thought: “ “Do not fear; only believe, and she will be well.”  (Luke 8:50)

“Your ability to act is directly dependent upon your diligent search for Truth and the embracing of it despite any who would pry you from it.

Allow the free-flowing movement of the Divine Spirit – in all forms – in your life: in all areas of your life. The power released is greater than the sum of the parts, for the spiritual interaction of Father, Son, Holy Spirit and your own spirit is similar to a chemical reaction of ingredients inert in themselves, but when mixed together, causing an explosion, not only affecting the ingredients, but the surrounding territory.

You are the critical “missing” or “present” ingredient which will determine a particular area in the universe as to the character in the physical realm and in the corresponding spiritual realm. Think, act, pray accordingly!

Bear your responsibility soberly, but carry out your duties of it in joy and satisfaction. This is possible and preferable: the force of the Divine explosion change is determined to great extent by your attitude toward your duties. Your enthusiastic, eager movements will boost the force of the movement, and will also be a witness to those who observe the movement of your life.”

Contrasts in Chemistry

Thoughts and actions harmonized with the Father’s will are the transforming miracles of life…

Meditation Thought: “And blessed is he who takes no offense at me.” (Luke 7:23)

“Blessed is he who sees Me with an open mind and open emotions! For I will flow into his mind and his emotions, releasing the chemistry of the living water of the Holy Spirit to re-arrange the thoughts and the actions to harmonize with the Father’s will. Thoughts and actions harmonized with the Father’s will are the transforming miracles of life defeating death, health defeating disease, joy replacing pain, peace soothing over distress, despair turned to hope, and the world displaced by the Kingdom.

When I am accepted, and not rejected, there is the Father accepted: there is His purpose fulfilled and the Word is confirmed in the deed. Know the Word and you shall have the wisdom to move in the flow of the Spirit, rather than being stopped abruptly in your tracks that you will be forced to turn in a new direction.

Let Me support you in My loving arms as we go together doing good. Our love shall be all the more precious as it is shared with all whom we meet. The glow of our love for each other will bring the desire to others to share in our love. This is the Good News proclaimed, and the Father glorified as the glow of love spreads throughout the land.”

Treasure Hunt

Where is your treasure? In the objects that the Father placed on earth for your pleasure – or in the joy of the Father’s love who placed them there?

Meditation Thought: “Power came forth from him and healed them all.” (Luke 6:19)

Power came forth from him because he had yielded his will to the Father, his mind to the Father, his body to the Father, his emotions to the Father, his spirit to the Father and his time and energy to the Father.

Where is your treasure? In the objects that the Father placed on earth for your pleasure – or in the joy of the Father’s love who placed them there?

 

The Power to Heal

The more effort and time you spend learning and tuning, the less time you will waste in prayers asking for forgiveness, and in retracing your paths in order to correct your mistakes.

Meditation Thought: “But he withdrew to the wilderness and prayed.” (Luke 5:16)

From where comes the power to heal? From the instructions of the Father… from the love of the Father… from the mercy of the Father. The instrument of healing must be connected to the power source or there is no healing. The time, the effort, the discipline of the adherence to the creative natural laws must be exerted if the desired results are to be obtained. Mere wishing – even by the very Spirit of God made flesh – could not manifest healing.

Follow the sure examples of demonstrated results: the spiritual experiments which proved true and which you desire to follow. Seek to duplicate the experiments which resulted in the healing of bodies, of spirits of emotions, of minds, of relationships – always remembering to take actions which will not cause harm. You know actions will not cause harm if they are actions suggested by the Word and prompted by the Spirit in response to your prayers and open spirit, mind and emotions tuned to hear the Voices of Heaven.

You cannot know what these actions are unless you understand the Word and have yourself tuned properly. The more effort and time you spend learning and tuning, the less time you will waste in prayers asking for forgiveness, and in retracing your paths in order to correct your mistakes. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (a little righteousness is worth a pound of repentance!)

Follow Where? How? Why?

Come let us go together to pastures green and soft – to water fresh and pure, and the safety of the Spirit – protected haven prepared for you in the midst of a treacherous world…”

Meditation Thought: “‘Follow me’ and he left everything and rose and followed him.” (Luke 5:27-28)

“Yes-yes-yes- ‘follow me’. I take you not away from your family and your duties, but deeper into them. Do not fear that I will divide your loyalty: I come to integrate one part of your being with another. You are the one who has fragmented yourself, fretting over choices, talking yourself into doing what you ‘ought’ to do when your desire was in another direction. Follow me into the sweet places of love, of delight of a child at the provision of his father for him. He does not question his right to the delights that his father provides him. He just enjoys them.

Walk uprightly, and do good – but with happy abandon, not with solemn stiffness.

Relax – I will give you what you need when you need it. Do not anticipate where you will be struggling with what may be completely alien to what will come – but deal with this moment according to My Word and Spirit. Pray for guidance. Listen fr guidance. Believe that you act according to My Will if you have done the first two steps, and then forget the action when it is over, so that you have cleared your emotions for the present moment.

Come let us go together to pastures green and soft – to water fresh and pure, and the safety of the Spirit – protected haven prepared for you in the midst of a treacherous world…”

The Secret of Joy and Revitalization

Emerge as one wise in the Word and joyous in the Spirit.

Meditation Thought: “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38)

Note: Marie perceived this message as being for her personally (see About This Blog) – however, there is such wisdom here – a road map even –  that I believe we can all apply the lessons. (The term handmaid refers to a close, personal servant.)

“According to My Word so shall it be to you. How you love My Word! That is because all you have experienced as you have tested it has proved it true. And so you know what is expected of you – you know what is needed to give you peace and joy. You know now what you want to learn, and so shall you learn if you continue in your “school of prayer”, in the deep intention of your heart, in your determination to delve more deeply into the joys of service and the revitalizing effect they have on you.

The Word shall start in your mind, but shall travel into every part of you: spirit, body, emotions – transforming, re-designing; a “new birth” – as if you shed the old ignorant, sin-ridden mind and attitude and body, and emerge “spanking-new” as one wise in the Word and joyous in the Spirit. Always will you need to learn and grow and change: but you will have a speeded-up visibility of results of obeying My Word and My Spirit. Keep your will firm to be my handmaid, for it is in this context that you will find fulfillment of all that pleases you.”

A Place of Refreshment & Renewal

His pain is the labor by which you are given birth into the Kingdom.

Meditation Thought: “…not what I will, but what you will.” (Mark 14:36)

“Expand! Be flexible – allow Me to stretch your abilities and talents – not by a forcing on My part for your good, but at My touch, yield willingly so that I may expand you gently. Do you not understand the message sent by My Son? His pain is the labor by which you are given birth into the Kingdom – as soon as you acknowledge Him as your Savior you are thrust into My Kingdom. My Kingdom is not a hostile environment for you: it is your place of refuge, your home, where you can be refreshed and renewed between bouts into the world.

My will is that you take advantage of all I offer you as the provider and head of your Kingdom-home. You must be willing to reach, to stretch, to give in order to be able to mature as a knowledgeable, effective member of My family. That is the meaning of “not what I will, but what you will.” If My Son, who is an integral part of Me, perfected in obedience, must struggle with choice, can you be excused from choice? No – you must struggle, must decide; but you have His example – follow it as an assurance of the working of my will in your life. The working of My will is the fulfillment of your heart’s desire: not your whim of the moment, but the deep, soul-longing need to be at peace and harmony with Me.”

Sow the Wind or the Word

You will be nourished and satisfied and have abundance to share, that others, too, may reap the benefit of your bountiful harvest.

Meditation Thought: “For they sow the wind,
    and they shall reap the whirlwind.” (Hosea 8:7)

If you sow the wind (the priorities of the world) in your mind and in your heart, you will reap the whirlwind of selfishness, greed, dissatisfaction, anger. The good seed to sow in your mind and in your heart is the Word, and watered by the Spirit, it produces the good fruit of love, joy, peace.

Do not look to the seed your neighbor sows, for your harvest is to be your own food, and you want it to be good for you. Persevere, seeking the good seed wherever you are led, taking the routes marked in the Word, and heeding the signs placed by the Spirit along the way.

The effort you make to seek good seed will be rewarded many times over, for when the harvest is gathered, your joy will be full. You will be nourished and satisfied and have abundance to share, that others, too, may reap the benefit of your bountiful harvest.

The Table of the Spirit – for You

You swallow spiritual truths into your being as surely as you swallow food into your body – or you refuse to swallow truths as surely as you refuse to eat food placed before you!

Meditation Thought: “your faith has made you well.” (Mark 10:52)

“Your knowledge and acceptance of My mercy has made you well (no longer sick with sin). You are functioning properly, having the disease of sin no longer within you, but removed by taking the medicine to counteract it – which is the acceptance into your spirit and mind of My sacrifice being the purifying medicine, and the ingestion of it into yourself as you swallow it with your spirit and mind focused on Me and My mercy. You swallow spiritual truths into your being as surely as you swallow food into your body – or you refuse to swallow truths as surely as you refuse to eat food placed before you!

The table of the Spirit is set before you; but you must see it and acknowledge it in order to be able to partake of its food.

As you learn more surely to see clearly and believe that the table is for your delight and nourishment, you shall reap more of the health of spirit, mind and body which it provides, as you enjoy feasting from it.

Oh, the variety to tempt your palate! And all of the various nutrients you need are included. You may need to learn to enjoy particular dishes, just as you learn to enjoy foods you at first have no taste for. But keep tasting whatever is offered to you, knowing that if it is on the table which has been prepared for you, it is for the benefit of your healthy body, mind or spirit.

And so as you trust your Chef and Waiter, you receive the good food which We prepare for your enjoyment and your health! The Chef has prepared the food, the Waiter is eager to serve you: will you walk to where the Host waits to show you your own special table so lovingly prepared for you? Once you set your will to seek the Host, to follow the Host’s leading, then do you assure yourself of obtaining the feast of Life: life temporal but transformed and life eternal. No longer are you weak with the desires of sin or starved for lack of knowledge, but strong with the works of the Spirit and the wisdom of the Word.”

Divine Power

To have meaning in your life you must believe in something…

Meditation Thought: “All things are possible for one who believes.” (Mark 9:23)

“All things are possible for one who believes because believing opens the lock in the dam of sin which has impeded the flow of divine power.

Accept the truth of the Word: believe the Word, have courage to stake your very life on the truth of the Word. Every thought, every act which expresses your belief in the Word opens the lock in the dam a little more.

To have meaning in your life you must believe in something: choose the Way. It is not the easy, downhill path – but it is the path along which you will find excitement and beauty and inspiration. Throw every facet of your being into the Truth as revealed to you, that the lock may be thrown open fully, and divine power rushed into your life:
cleansing,
thirst-quenching,
life-sustaining holy water.

The difference between stagnation and a resurrected life;
a born again life;
a new life;
life no longer in flesh only but transformed by the Spirit of Living Water.”
