I saw this image during a time of worship but never had the opportunity to share it with those present.
There was a person high in the heavens and they were walking seemingly supernaturally.
With each forward step they took, a large, white, stone pillar came from far beneath the sky up to right under his foot. It could not be seen until the person put that foot forward, then suddenly it would rise to give him a place for that stepping foot.
I saw this for several strides that he made as he continued to walk more confidently with each step.
The Spirit said that each of those pillars were words He had previously spoken to that person. As he would meditate upon them, trusting that God would fulfill what He had spoken, they would prove to be the sure foundation for him to walk.
I knew that this experience, in its totality, was what faith was. It was given the person a path where none had been, nor ever dreamed of being (in the heavens). But it could not be seen until the words were recalled and trusted. Then it would rise to give him sure footing, at exactly the right time.
And so the HolySpirit reveals that we may tread in high places, and we will walk more and more confidently with each step. For we will see these immoveable pillars of white stone come to give us a sure foundation upon which to walk. We must simply recall and meditate upon the words that our Lord has already spoken, and we will walk as though on solid ground.
3Though an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear. Though war should rise against me, even then I will be confident. 4One thing I have asked of Yahweh, that I will seek after, that I may dwell in the house of Yahweh all the days of my life, to see Yahweh's beauty, and to inquire in his temple. 5For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion. In the covert of his tent he will hide me. He will lift me up on a rock. 6Now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me. I will offer sacrifices of joy in his tent. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to Yahweh. 7Hear, Yahweh, when I cry with my voice. Have mercy also on me, and answer me. (Psalms 27:3-7)
The entrance of your words gives light. It gives understanding to the simple. I rise before dawn and cry for help. I put my hope in your words. (Psalms 119:130, 147)
Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen. By faith, they passed through the Red Sea as on dry land. When the Egyptians tried to do so, they were swallowed up. (Hebrews 11:1, 29)
As you read this site, you will hopefully come to know Yahweh more fully.
But all of this continuing knowledge is useless unless and until you come into union with Him. I use the word union because it is truly a marriage. It is that deep connection we all seek, for which we most often look in other people. However, the truth is that our hearts will only be fulfilled when we enter that union in fullness with the One Who made us.
This is the grace of God, that He has not stayed distant for us only to worship as Creator. But He has come unto us, even become one of us—in His Son, ChristJesus—in order to share an intimate union with us. He desires such closeness that it truly will envelope our entire life, transforming us into something new and wonderful.
You may have already entered this union with Him and only seek to know Him better through reading here. But if you have not, as you do read, let this Gospel sink into your heart as you read it now.
God loves you, and has cast your sins into the sea. He has sent His only Son as the Savior of the world—that includes you.
That Son, JesusChrist, was born as a man through a virgin who had given her life to Yahweh; He lived without sin, reflected the glory of His Father, God, in all His words and deeds, and was persecuted even unto death because of it.
His death upon a cross was the powerful explosion that separated you from your life of death. It remains for you, now, to enter into that death with Him. As you die to the one you are now, a person separated from God from your many sins, you will be born anew, with a nature predisposed to live rightly. This gift is free to you, with nothing you can do to earn it. It is the mercy of God to offer it to you, as He loves you so much! All you must do is receive it by trusting Him to have delivered you. Simply place your life in His hands and embrace the freedom that came through that death on the cross.
The Gospel is that Jesus did not remain dead, but rose again on the third day after His crucifixion! Death could not hold Him, as He was without sin. And so death will not be able to hold you, as you identify with Him fully through your trust in Him. Let go of yourself and confess Him as Lord of your life. The power of His death and resurrection will work in you all that your Creator has destined for you. You will truly enter a new life and experience that intimate union you have been seeking all of your life.
So ponder these words as you read here of this great God—Yahweh—and all that He has revealed to His creation. Let His Spirit testify to your heart that these words are true, that God is Love, and that He sent His Son so that you might receive the life that is unbound by time and space. As you feel that witness in your heart, simply believe and receive what He is offering to you, even now, and begin your new life as a child of God.
Please write to me and let me know when you take this step, as I will be your brother in Christ—we will be one in Him!
