The Art of the Word (Re-Post)

For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [by God]. (1 Corinthians 13:12
- Amplified Bible)

Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and [a]everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven. (Matthew 18:19
- Amplified Bible)

We don't have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He's been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let's walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help. (Hebrews 4:15, 15
- The Message)

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.(Psalms 19:1-4 - TNIV)

O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer!From the ends of the earth,I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings! (Psalms 61:1-4 - NLT)

That which is now already has been, and that which is to be already has been; and God seeks that which has passed by [so that history repeats itself ]. (Ecclesiastes 3:15 - Amplified Bible)

Amen! For God knows our uprisings and our downfalls, and is not far from us. Even in the times we feel alone and isolated, GOD is our ever present help, not only in times of trouble/ adversity, but at all times. If the heavens declares the Glory of the Lord without even making a sound, then surely we are to let our light shine and give praise unto the Lord Most High for the magnificent works that He has already done. We have already overcome through the Blood of the Lamb (Christ) and the words of our testimony--- even as we are in these OVERCOMING Processes, let everything that have breath praise the Lord. As we rejoice in the midst of all things, regardless of how we feel in the natural, surely God takes note of those Sacrifices of Praise. For true sacrifices of praise are not rendered from our spirit based on how we FEEL or don't feel at the time, and not even if we happen to be going through certain trials and tribulations, YET we are to Praise Him regardless of what it looks like. And as we keep our eyes ON HIM, our hearts FIXED / Settled in Him-- this brings about HIS PEACE that surpasses all understanding. Therefore, what shall WE SAY unto all these things? BECAUSE GOD is for us, with us, and the Holy Spirit abides in us, then we shall not be tossed about with every passing wind that brings about seeming turmoil, FOR HE alone is Lord Almighty Sovereign and Supreme in times of Feast or Famine, whether we are in the valleys of despair or rejoicing in the Mountaintop Experiences! So, let us give thanks unto Lord and ARISE and Proclaim that the Glory of the Lord is IN US, with us, and Upon / Around Us all along. "The Lord Gives and Takes Away, Yet My Heart Shall Surely Say, BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD, Blessed be HIS HOLY NAME! Amen.

I shall worship the Lord with Gladness, for In Him there is supernatural peace and wholeness. Let everything that have breath PRAISE THE LORD, for He is to serve as Our Strength, for we have already been Redeemed, while we are being processed, transitioned, and stretched from Glory to Glory Everlasting, Faith to Uncompromising Faith in Him, and the strength that we don't have within our own beings to THE GREATEST STRENGTH IN HIM, whom is the Author and Finisher of Our Faith indeed and the Rock that Shall NEVER CRUMBLE.

Hallelujah! For this is the day that the LORD HAS MADE, so let us ALL REJOICE and Be Glad in it. In those times when it seems that we may not be where we want to be at a particular time and season in our Lives, as Long as We Remain IN HIM, Our Steps are Ordered, Guided, and Directed that we may reach the Promised Land- whatever that may be or whatever that may represent in each individual's life. There is no one place of arrival, but we are to ARISE and ARRIVE to new dimensions of consciousness, diligence, and steadfast consistency in Him by His Grace and Mercy where we can walk through the fires and the floods in all confidence grounded and rooted IN HIM-- acknowledging that He established our beginning from our end and our end from the beginning.

So, in the in-between stages of uncertainty and sometimes as the purposes and plans of God wrestle with or against our own understanding, we are to boldly profess that IN HIM I move, I breathe, and I have my being. Rejoice! for the boundaries have been pushed back, the limitations have been demolished, and territories have been expanded and extended! Now, LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD BOLDLY TAKE A STAND, let the weak say I AM STRONG IN THE LORD, may the blinders and scales disintegrate and fall from your eyes so that we may say with all certainty: I SEE THE LIGHT, and the oppressed and afflicted ARISE and proclaim Wholeness and Complete Restoration IN HIM through the Holy Spirit. Shout Hallelujah and Sing unto the Lord NEW SONGS of Joy and Deliverance, for it is not where or how we begin that matters most, it is where we shall end up and who we uplifted along the way....Through the Journey we are processed, purged, and pruned to produce growth and yield fruit to feed the multitudes in those New Horizons and Greater Dimensions. Be encouraged for we are not forsaken, abandoned, or forgotten by the Lord of Hosts.

This post does strange things to me...checked what I wrote last time and I said sort of the same thing.

Without going into personal details, I'm reminded of the Gethsemane verses from the Gospels In The Now...Jesus' Son of Man struggling with His Son of God...and its as if the pictures here are Son of Man and the Scriptures are Son of God...invoking very deep feelings...

...and the final picture is a reminder that we just NEVER know exactly what its like to walk in another's shoes...so, "do unto others as if they were us".

Great title: The Art of the Word...no kidding...like good art, this compilation of work and Word definitely evokes responses in me...and offers a healing balm too.

Cool wordver: menew...yep, if I can stay in these verses, me definitely will be new!

If any two or more agree on earth it will be in heaven. so that is why we have or have not what we say in group. if we really want it we can't say anything against it. If we are for it we can not be against it. Letting our yes be yes.
I feel the new year will be our breakthrough year.
New adventures await each and everyone who is truely connected with this ministry.
