To be LOST, then FOUND
Dear ABBA… Daddy,
Sometimes I feel so alone. No longer do I have the excitement and wonder of youth. The seasons of life have all but gone by so quickly. All my life I have had a front row seat before my television watching the horror story of man’s inhumanity to man unfold on the world’s stage.
I have heard too much and have seen too much of the world around me. Ancient Messianic Prophecies, in ISAIAH, JOEL, ZECHARIAH and more written by Elohim / אלוהים, who stands outside of time; continue to come to life daily before my eyes.
The END of TIME and the BEGINNING Of ETERNITY has begun. You can read them in HIS BIBLE, One Book made up of the Old Testament and the JEWISH NEW TESTAMENT. The Bible is the only True communication to mankind from outside this world.
Why are we so focused on ourselves that we have grown calloused to the pain all around us? How is it that our tears have stopped flowing?
We see, yet we are blind. We hear, yet we are deaf…our hearts have grown cold towards everyone, except ourselves. The words of Isaiah are just as true for Fallen Mankind as they are for the Nation of Israel.
Isaiah 6: 9-10 “and he said, “Go, and say to this people. Keep on hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, but do not perceive. Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”
Gods revealed Truth remains The Truth whether we believe it or not, whether we acknowledge it or not. JESUS is the SON of GOD and HE said every knee shall bow and every mouth will confess HIM as LORD on Earth, and in Heaven. And YES, there will be NO NON-BELIEVERS in Hell.
HE IS THE LORD of the Living and THE LORD of the Dead. The Lord of the Lost and the Lord of the Found.
The smoke and mirrors of this world’s value system no longer comforts me. The mask that I viewed the world through was ripped off my face at the age of 38 in 1985 when I came to faith in the SON of GOD, before His Cross planted in the Judean Dirt outside the City of Jerusalem. There you will find me face down in the dirt every day at His Feet; praying for those I love to WAKE-UP before it is too late for them.
No longer can I hide my emotions. The reality of the pain and despair that surrounds me has wrapped my heart in grief for all those I see and meet who do not know HIM.
So, like the prophets of old I cry out into the darkness with tears. I preach HIS LOVE shown at HIS CROSS, and I preach HIS SOON COMING JUDGEMENT with Tears and Compassion for the Lost.
Because My Grief for the LOST is my Daily PASSION and my Prayer is that THEY Would BE FOUND.
Do you live your life daily according to Your Will or HIS WILL ?
Is your WALK of FAITH so strong that you can Feel His hand in yours as you walk through this journey called Life?
Can you Hear HIS footsteps as HE walks alongside you?
Can you Smell the Sweet Fragrance of Christ all around you in the midst of your storm?
Without that kind of FAITH, our walk on this planet called Earth is extremely difficult. Even Jesus cried out to HIS FATHER from the Cross; My God, My God, WHY have YOU forsaken ME. And in return…the Silence of God was deafening. Yet even the silence was part of the plan, because that is what we do as believers…we live out HIS Plan …not ours.
Have you ever given any thought to the tears JESUS will wipe from your eyes? Why am I going to be crying before Him? Maybe because as hard as I tried, the motives of my heart are always tinged with pride. Maybe because in my own way I too have Mocked God by trying to blend into the sewage around me like a Chameleon?
Maybe because I have not taken His command to share the Gospel serious enough and JESUS will show me the hundreds of times I could have made a difference in someone’s life by planting a seed for the Holy Spirit to water.
I will stand before Him and use words to give an account of the life He gave me to live out before HIM. He will then give an account of the times He had given me words to speak, but I chose to remain silent.
To my shame my life is full of words never spoken. Words that were meant to give life by planting seeds into the hearts of people that God put into my path. Thousands upon thousands of words never spoken have filled my memory with If Only Moments. Only God knows the answer to “what If I had obeyed and spoke.”
In the end when we stand before JESUS as HE wipes the tears from our eyes; the lesson we will learn is that our lives will be measured not only by what we did, but also by what we did not do.
I know I am weak and I know I am not Holy. But, I also know HE said in my weakness, HE will show HIS strength if I look to HIM for help.
If you feel the need to… then ask HIM to help you match up your walk with your talk …I have.
May El Gibbor, The Lord God Almighty, cover you and your family with His
Wishing you …and everyone You love…His Wings of protection.
May Yeshua, The Lord Jesus, continue to provide your family with His Grace and Mercy as you make HIM the center of your relationships.
May the Ruach HaKadesh, The Holy Spirit, bless and keep you and your family as He lights the steps of your path all the days of your life and all the way home to heaven.
