How do we find balance? What is balance? Are you balanced? In reading the scripture, thanks should be on our lips every step of the way. We have shared on thanksgiving so many times. Did you thank God today? I ask because it might have been overlooked. You know what? Let us go back over the course of the day after and think about all the “It happened.”, “I am so lucky (blessed) that could have happened, but it didn’t.”, “I have a job.”, “Wow, I am home! I wonder how many people ended up in the hospital or morgue, at least I didn’t.” Even if you were at the hospital, you are home or on your way home (so much to say on this home could mean so much.) Don’t take it wrong, if you live these it is your residence, your hone. I was in a way referring to our final home. I for one always point things out as they come to me.
What will you say to Methuselah when you meet him? “Wow!?” I am sure that will be in your Spirit to say. How about to Jesus? I mean we know He is there preparing a place for you. Man! 2000+ years later??? Wow! Must be so custom made! Which they will be, I got to thinking about the “domiciles” Angels don’t have ‘domiciles’, yet they have been there for eternity. They are! We did not here of the “residence” of Angels. They were created for a purpose and they fulfill their role
God had the Universe in the physical to create and He did! We have already discussed this Sun for light and warmth. Earth so perfectly placed that all remain in their place. Planets, moors all in a linked orbit! Wow! He created and saw it was good! And as we said “finally on the ‘sixth’ day/period God created Man” as a watcher and caretaker of His creation. That was taken, Jesus earned it back, and now is seated as King of all at the right hand of our Father.
Awesome things have been done, No?
When it comes to praying (I am aware that we have spoken about this before, it is wonderful to draw a HUGE line under this to highlight its importance.) We pray and ask, at times we may not receive or see results in the here and now. Not a reason to stop believing but to give thanks for all God has done and is doing. Who can give an example of when a prayer answer was detained? Anyone???
What happened in Daniel? To be specific who is Daniel? We have heard of Daniel in the lions den? What else makes him a man of God to ‘revisit’?
“On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris, I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. His body was like topaz, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.
I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; those who were with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves. So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my face to the ground.
A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.
Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.” ”
Awesome, no? Our prayers are known before we utter them. As stated parallel dimensions exist. The physical and the spiritual. Let me ask, in the garden of Eden, how did God commune with Adam? He was here in Spirit, obviously apparent to Adam and Eve.
In the Isrealites journey from Egypt to the promised land was God not with them? We live in a parallel Universe, I could go on. One final example (which we have discussed) at the time of the birth of the Hunan form of Jesus, there was fan fare in Heaven which was seen by those who were outside the city limits-shepherds in the field by night. And when Jesus resisted temptation the Angels in parallel came and ministered to Him.
Parallel existences; we have gone over a myriad of examples. What I stated is that we are on a grand stage in the Spiritual aspect of things. Our thoughts, desires and actions are known. If we think something, do we have to do it??? The answer is “Absolutely not!” Eve was tempted in the garden, seeing the serpent (the most wily of all creatures) eating of the fruit of the tree man had been told not to partake of. In essence we died! We have a limit, no? As pointed out Man had no limits prior. We read The Word and see whay age many were.
It was pointed out that Adam was created as the sole caretaker of the garden. He named and cared for all. When created God had expressed His desire that perhaps Adam would be in an agreeable state with the beasts/animals here on Earth. This was well before Eve was created. Animals were seen to thrive well before Adam as put into a deep sleep and Eve was created.
On this topic much can be said. The first ‘rules’ were given to Adam and not to Eve. When Eve was ‘tempted’ where was Adam? He could not have been too far. Because she shared with him of the fruit of the tree of good and evil. ‘Time’ did not exist yet. God created the Heavens and the Earth with a thin veil between.
