Saturday 6/5/21 – Cracking the Code (Part I)

Christian Mysticism, up until this last week I had never heard these 2 words together. Last night, my wife and I sat down to have one of our “talks,” we have a lot of those these days. Usually the talk begins with how our days went, what crazy and new things were revealed to us throughout the day. These talks may include what we learned from the verse of the day and/or the devotional we go through each morning on the Bible you version app. I have an atheist friend that likes to “debate” with me and tries to get me to think logically and critically as he was a believer but after tragedy struck his family he started searching for truth and his search which has included 10+ years of study and has led him to disbelief. I do not consider the talks I have with him “debates” but rather deep, philosophical discussions. God works in amazing and radical ways. I wouldn’t read the Bible for myself or for God but I am now reading the Bible from beginning to end because of my friend constantly reminding me that I haven’t read the Bible like he has from cover to cover at least 6 times. I am now reading the Bible but I believe it is not like he has read the Bible because I am realizing the Bible cracks the “code.” I believe that the majority of the Bible reveals the character of God but the “red lettering” is required to understand how to remove us from living “of the world.” Jesus said it would be better for Him to leave this earth for that is the only way that He could send His Holy Spirit to each and everyone of us. The Holy Spirit will teach us ALL things and remind us of everything Jesus said. When the student is ready, the teacher appears. However, the “red lettering” is required to understand ALL that the Holy Spirit is going to teach and reveal to us. The “red lettering” is not logical thinking when you think in terms of “living in and of the world” but only makes sense when you think in terms of “living in but not of this world.” One has to think and reflect on the words and teachings of Jesus in order to comprehend what the Holy Spirit will teach and reveal to us. -A humble warrior in God’s army

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” -Matthew 14:6-7 ESV

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation and deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever, Amen. -The Lords prayer

Thank You Lord Jesus! Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to live inside each and every one of us. Thank You for waking me up from the “spell” the world had put on me. Thank You that Your Holy Spirit is with me to lead, guide and direct me in all that I do. Thank You for giving me this project, not much of an audience yet so this seems like it’s just for me and it certainly is therapeutic to think through and process all that You are teaching me. If by sharing my story, it is Your will to lead only 1 more soul to You, it will be worth it all. Thank You Lord, bless You Lord, praise You Lord Jesus. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

I'm learning how to follow after Jesus and what that looks like. I believe that I have the ultimate teacher leading me through this journey.
