A place to journey and discover the healing and restoration you have been searching for.
Do you know how diamonds are 'made', or what they are made from?
Well, first they are formed or transformed deep within the earth - transformed from coal into diamonds. What?
Yes, from coal, used to burn for heat and power -- hmm, are you getting a feel for your blessed life?
From a piece of black coal - through much, Much, MUCH PRESSURE! - the coal is transformed during this time of pressure into diamonds. In this pressure and high temperature atmosphere the carbon, atoms bond tightly and diamonds in the rough are made. From the essence of coal - through the pressure and volcanic heat - diamonds are born - 1st birth.
Then the diamonds are 'discovered' and put through a process that brings forth the stone that is the hardest substance, but only the most brilliant stone --
So if we compare -- we are first born through a heat driven activity that brings two substances together - and the first structure is formed - body - birthed.
Secondly, when we are found, and we choose to let Je'sus into our heart, we are born again - shaped by our very circumstances - cut and shaped to reflect the light through our living lives --
We Are LIVING DIAMONDS!
We reflect the light of God all around us, and the light shines and heals - or if required - just as a diamond is used for laser beams - a weapon -- so the light shining through us can be a laser that cuts the yokes from off of us, and others around or who we touch - as in the atoms in a diamond bond tightly together.
God is awesome, and we are his children, birthed, born again, and living diamonds!
There is a song that reflects the above blog - called Chisel Me - it is an anointed song so listen to, watch it carefully and rejoice that God is chisling us all in our journey of new life in Christ, as living diamonds! Click on the link, or copy and paste it - it is awesome!!!!!…Continue
Welcome back. Get ready to look at how real and complete God is. God wants us to see the complete picture of life on this earth, the real deal.
The prodigal's father is forgiving and loving and generous beyond any fault. However, his other son, the brother (as in brothers and sisters in Christ) did not even approach forgiveness, the love or the generosity. Jealous is more of what the 'brother' felt -- not at all forgiving or loving and definitely not generous. Let's read: Luke 13:25 -32
Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found
But his older son was in the field; and as he returned and came near the house, he heard music and dancing.
And having called one of the servant [boys] to him, he began to ask what this meant.
And he said to him, Your brother has come, and your father has killed [h]that [wheat-]fattened calf, because he has received him back safe and well.
But [the elder brother] was angry [with deep-seated wrath] and resolved not to go in. Then…
Are you ready for the real deal? Deep breath, sit back and get ready to smile.
Did you know that as you come to your senses - and choose to run back to God that He sees you from afar and RUNS TO YOU??? Uhuh! Let's look: Luke 15:20
20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
20So he got up and came to his [own] father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity and tenderness [for him]; and he ran and embraced him and kissed him [fervently].
20 When he was still a long way off, his father saw him. His heart pounding, he ran out, embraced him, and kissed him.
Now the whole story is about us, how we got all full of ourselves and turned from the very one we needed most, and bam, stepped into the deep whole of sin and lost all we thought we 'had'. Hmm. And then when we decide that we blew it -- yea! When we choose to face up to the fact that 'I' chose to take all and leave and wasted all I had on my foolish and sinful choice of 'living high on the hog' -- And begin our return home to God, well God's been watching and sees us from afar off, and RUNS TO US and embraces us, and kisses us fervently -- not just a peck on the cheek and a pat on the back.
Now we left God, and yet when we wake up and smell the truth of the emptiness of life, and decide to go home, go back and even be just a servant, God sees us, knows us, and runs -- RUNS to us - light flash, EMBRACES us - Holy Spirit anointing , and kisses us - we speak in tongues.
The information after the - above is my interpretation, and I know it is true for me. For you it may be different, as in your unique experience with God.…
Hello -- have you been avoiding the mirror -- as in you don't seem to be able to look in it for long. Ha! Oh well, the process isn't easy, and it may appear hopeless BUT (and but means forget the beginning of this sentence) LOVE never leaves or forsakes you.
Are you sitting and ready??? Let's go on then. In Luke 15: we find more info on the prodigal that we need. Let's look in the 3 versions of these Words:
And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father.
Then when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father have enough food, and [even food] to spare, but I am perishing (dying) here of hunger! I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; [just] make me like one of your hired servants. So he got up and came to his [own] father.
"That brought him to his senses. He said, 'All those farmhands working for my father sit down to three meals a day, and here I am starving to death. I'm going back to my father. I'll say to him, Father, I've sinned against God, I've sinned before you; I don't deserve to be called your son. Take me on as a hired hand.' He got right up and went home to his father.
Well, he came to his senses -- as in woke up from whatever lies were causing him to be unaware of the truth -- as in remember who he really was - his father's son. Hmmm. Do you know that you are God's…
