“In the Potters Hands”

creator Jeremiah 18-4

Jeremiah 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.

I realized today that I had been like that vessel that was marred in the Potters hand. As it says in Psalm 139:13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I have been a work of your hand from the very beginning but I was not turning out as you had desired and You gave me the opportunity to allow you to make me again into another vessel. There were impurities that entered into this vessel that He had formed at a very early age which made it unacceptable but thank You Yeshua for coming to rescue me. I am so very thankful that I allowed You to mold me into something You could take home and let me sit at Your table for in the reality of the eternal perspective, I am but a child. Luke 18:16 Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.”

I understand that this is the ultimate reality that we all live in. Being born into this worlds system is only the beginning of the process that we all must go through. Unless we take that step of faith and allow the Potter to cause us to be born of the Spirit, from above, we can never sit at His table for the meal of all ages. We are all marred by this worlds system and this God of Creation gives us free will to choose whether we desire to live in the darkness or in His marvelous light, whether we want to cloak our thoughts and activities in lies and falsehood or to dwell in openness and truth without fear. Once the born again from above experience takes place, we are allowed to see just how fantastically awesome His Kingdom really is. We really do become a new creation, a new vessel of honor, ready for an eternity of freedom.

“Impressions”

Impressions

Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Jeremiah 6:16 Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. 

It seems to me that the world is still eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and in fact desires the fruit of evil more than it does the fruit of good. The trouble is we have eaten from the wrong tree, end of story. If it had not been so, we would still be in that Garden of God. This God of Creation is still admonishing that we should come to Him and find rest.

There is yet another tree in the Garden of God, and there are Cherubim with flaming swords guarding the way and those who have been allowed to eat of that other tree, these days are finding another sword coming against them. The problem we find is that this other fruit causes those who partake to become light in a very dark world and the darkness hates the light as it shows up the evil for what it is and at all costs must be destroyed. Thus, if you have eaten from that other tree, the tree of life, you will be sought out to be destroyed. Evil hates Righteousness. Lies hate Truth. Darkness hates Light. Those who have eaten from the tree of Life, can see where they are going unlike the evil generation who cannot see the abyss that they are about to fall into because it is so very dark. We must pray for the eyes to be opened and turn on enough light for at least some to see.

This God of Creation has called me to be a scribe with a camera to say what He shows me and I have been attempting to do that for the past 54 years. I pray blessings on your day and life.

“Interpretation”

Crying out to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

 As I was eating my lunch, I saw a fellow across the street doing his daily prayers to allah and as I watched him bowing down, putting his head on the ground and standing up and then down again and up and down, I felt so very sorry for him. I wonder what the quoran teaches in regard to what allah will do for each individual who bows down to him. As far as I can see on the news and the internet, their goal seems to be to take over the world with hatred and violence. On the street, I do not see any love or kindness. In the Middle East, where I live, it appears that the only ones who benefit in any way, are the leaders and the multitudes are starting to finally catch on that there really is no benefit to this false god worship except death and destruction. The stories that come out of these Muslim countries and dictatorial nations is appalling.

Thus, my prayer to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is to open the eyes of all Muslims to see what this false god is doing to them and their children. I pray that my God will cleanse their hearts of hatred and fill them with love and compassion and understand that my God has a glorious future for them of peace and security if they will follow Yeshua and His teachings. It seems allah wants to make them killers and discontent but Yeshua wants to make them lovers of peace and give them joy.
