An Other Room

28 Jan

January 27, 2014

Earlier i wrote that “fortunately we found the Way.”. However it was God who showed us the Way.

It was in January 2013 when Earth Mother first came to visit me. I didn’t realize that until later. During that year 2013, Earth Mother taught me who She is – She is the Mother of Jesus. Then i had to read and read and i learned that She is the Holy Spirit. She taught me everything. She spoke to me and told me a lot of things and made me laugh and stuff. That was the first year, and then in 2014 She still stayed with me and took me camping to Glide and Florence and all around. Over time i no longer could hear Her Voice so loud and clearly. It became more distanter and now over time i don’t hear Her at all like that anymore.

More or less. I thought, this is the third year now. Some might think, oh, he must really know what he is doing by now. But i don’t. Even though i don’t “hear” God’s voice like i did in 2013, i still “receive understanding”, which is like hearing God’s voice, without hearing. When i began to realize God’s voice was fading quieter i began to panic one time, thinking i would lose touch. But now over time i have learned to rely on my faith. Even though i don’t hear God’s voice loudly and clearly, i know that God is nearby me at all times. Sometimes in weakness i may start to be afraid, because i can’t hear God and i begin to question if God has left me! But then i rely on my faith again. Then over time, with practice and faith, i just have learned to know that God is present with me at all times. Even though i can’t see God, i can clearly hear God from time to time.

I tried to think of an analogy. What can i compare it to? First i thought – it’s like having an open phone line at all times with God, being able to speak and hear God at all times. Then i thought, it’s more like being in the same house, but being in separate rooms where we can hear each other but not see each other. Later on i thought it is more like being in the same room together, being separated only by a curtain. A curtain that we can’t see through, but God can see us, and we can both hear each other clearly. In fact, we’re not very far apart at all. God can touch me, so i know God is very close to us. I thought about our world we live in, and then there is Heaven, two separate worlds. And yet, like the Garden of Eden, there is a place where the Earth exists, and Heaven also exists at the same place. It is a place where Heaven and Earth overlap, where the two shall meet. It is a Spiritual place.

I have to listen carefully to hear God because God’s voice is kind of quiet. Then if i am quietly thinking, then sometimes i will hear God’s voice very clearly. Like yesterday, or the day before i think, out of the blue God said to me “Do you remember the time we went to Wahkeena Falls? And of course i did! So i thought about that day for awhile. I think it would be great to sit around and think about all the fun things i did, but there is so much going on that there is usually no time for that. But there is some time occasionally.

And then there are the things that i just somehow suddenly “understand” for no apparent reason. I take no credit for what God has given to me. I only try to be a good listener. I begin to realize that hearing God speak to me is now what is commonly referred to as our “conscience”. So i think God speaks to us normally through our conscience, and that is how God taught us that. First by talking out loud, then gradually quieter and quieter until speaking through the conscience almost entirely. I tend to think of these things as coming from the brain, or the head. But actually my conscience seems to be more near my center.

Also i thought about when Jesus died and the veil on the temple was torn. The veil that separated the Most Holy Place was torn. I think that was also symbolic in meaning. Where man had sinned and God had to put up a veil to separate us from Him, Jesus actually broke through the veil. Jesus made a way through the veil, He made it through to the other side. And by so doing, Jesus created a Way for us to follow Him through the veil. Symbolically speaking.

I thought about what am i doing? and should i keep on sending God’s message even though many people don’t even listen? Should i just keep on telling it over and over? I thought about Lot and the city of Sodom. The angel went over there and told Lot, c’mon, we’re getting you out of here. We need a witness, and you’re it. After that, Lot didn’t go out into the city preaching, and trying to save those people’s souls. No, Lot got his things packed and they left the city. Also, i thought about Noah. Noah was asked to build an Ark, and so Noah did. Apparently Noah didn’t go about the countryside, preaching and trying to save peoples souls. Noah kept building his Ark, so he could get out of there. So i thought, maybe i shouldn’t keep on repeating God’s message over and over. Maybe i just need to build a Spiritual Ark. But then i thought about John the Baptist. John the Baptist, he didn’t have anything to build, such as an Ark. No, John didn’t have to do anything like that. The only main thing that John the Baptist had to do was to preach the gospel of Jesus, and to tell people that Jesus was coming soon. And so i thought that is the same thing that i should do.

Matthew Chapter 7

JUDGE not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with
what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but
considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of
thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and
then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s
eye.
6 ¶ Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your
pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn
again and rend you.
7 ¶ Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and
it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he
give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give
good things to them that ask him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to
you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
13 ¶ Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is
the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in
thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth
unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 ¶ Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of
thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt
tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree
bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and
cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is
in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not
prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in
thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from
me, ye that work iniquity.
24 ¶ Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a
rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a
rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them
not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon
the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the
people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
