In our ekklesia, we’ve been talking about how Jesus healed the man born blind (as recorded in the gospel of John.) As an aside I found interesting, a friend told me that in the Jewish Talmud (that’s a collection of the teachings of the Jewish elders), it was said that one of the signs of the true Messiah would be that he would heal a man born blind. Is that amazing, or what?
I have one last post to share regarding this sign, dated 5-15-10. Yes, it’s been sitting in my journal a while . . . anyway, here’s what I heard in my heart when I asked the Lord about this sign one more time:
In My word is light, life, clarity. You need no longer doubt, for I lead you by My words to you, by the light that I have hidden in My word. No, not every seeker may find it, but you, My children, who seek truth in humility, for love’s sake, may come in. It is not accessible to every reader, but only to the hungry. It is that bread for the eater that I supply therein, not that you should display it in a showcase, but that you, earnestly desiring light, should feast on it, savoring it and with it, satisfying your soul. You do not walk alone, but with everyone who seeks My face throughout time. Together, you have become one with Me. Your saints shall know that which was known before, by saints of old, so that you all may be made one in us, in blessings in in the fellowship of suffering.
My will is this — that you in Us should become one body, one house, one people, one bride.
How do we do that, Lord? I asked.
Pray for one another. Support and uplift one another. Let your brothers and sisters support you, and in the same manner, support them. Strive, endeavor to be of one mind and one Spirit — that is the Spirit of Christ. As I anointed My Son to be light to His generation, so I anoint you all, in Him, to be light to this present generation. And darkness, blindness, is increasing as confusion rises with the tide of rebellion, desperation, and deceit. Nothing can redeem this (or any other) generation but My Son — My Son in you all, because for such a time as this I have placed you here.
You are not in any way superior to previous generations, however you are specifically prepared for the work I shall give you. See to it that you do not waste time comparing yourselves to others. Yes, there are patterns, but all times are different, and I prepare you for your own time.
See to it then that you walk in the present moment — not in the past nor in the near or distant future. Trust Me one day at a time and I will give you rest.
