So they will bless... This way, says God. This, is how.
Why is God poetic, particular in speech and expression? What’s the need? Or could this sometimes or somewhat, be the human filter? God somehow communicates and this voiced/out, any which way the meaning secure is accurate? Impressions to expressions but more the former/God.
Certainly if this happens today, if at all, I’d likely expect and discern a brevity of words. Not so Moses.
I’m confident, at least hopeful, God speaks directly to loads of people. I question there’s anything much ‘of God’ from those named and claimed regular prophet-likes, who say of each other, this is almost all 'thus saith'.
The very substance of their booster-ups, simply don’t stack. (I’m referring to the Charismatic-called-prophets lot). I believe their attempts prophetic, is 'praying'. So not without value. Or God.
I can’t say God’s spoken so clearly or strongly to me. Unquestionable encouragement in the current moves of direction, this for sure. So sure, because it comes in couldn’t-be-otherwise circumstances. One recently, such a pearl, defies any possible analysis - a coincidence. So blatant, such timing and unimaginable odds it ‘just was’. Yet I could’ve missed it. At least this ‘one’. Others leave no room to miss. This did... just.
I have general and overall, in-the-world understandings, that chime with God-now-saying - but not the break-in kind. It’s because I’m not, as yet, sufficiently in the place of praying-enough and in deep, deep enough surrender. Not sown sufficient ‘word’. So, I can’t, hear. Receive. Yet...
But God willing, getting to a place of hearing and be gladly shocked cometh the/se day/s.
God seems to be brief when verbatim. In the past believed - confirmed in my own my mind - God has spoken to others,more a sentence, or line. Only other times, were one or two unmistakable cries of impressions, from an interpenetration ‘other languages’ (aka ‘tongues’) in a prayer meeting.
This website has v.few visitors but I part-write to communicate to the unseen stats. To the unseen, period. Obviously, I’d like to think I could be a blessing to people but recognise I’m not much of a fit-in read. The style is often unnecessarily convoluted, shoving too much, into too little space. And with that, either not explaining myself, assuming readers have my understanding of the background to what said. Or, trying to explain and not with clarity of confidence.
I see myself reaching out, a-grasping, exploring. I’d be most privileged, in this being of interest and having conviction, with anyone not-sure, about this-Jesus. Or those all claimed-up and named C - encouraged to do their own-version.
Obviously, I set all this, in most urgent of times. This digital ground I type on isn’t assumed upon. Presumed and a given. One, that’ll necessarily remain? Another, hence; ‘why write?’
I’m going to look back, over previous posts and begin to link them to new ones written, thereby keep briefer for a bit, spend more of m’early time praying, than tapping.
For today though. This:
God speaks to make. The word is - the maker. The very syllables, those symbols - can in a certain combine, in enough of a sequence or format: Have the-Power, intended. God didn’t and doesn’t, just say, any-old-how - but speaks in messages and medium.
And then there’s under the surface meanings. Messages. Codes and the like.
Difficult to discern, but the enemy is undoubtedly committed to numerology. And other dark illuminate, yet undercover, ways. A warfare engaged though symbols, signs and numbers. And words.
God counters this through the prophetic. Through us. Knowingly but mostly, otherwise. Although 'faith', another component, and leading... and on, and more... For now. The word above, read out-loud. Believe. Receive.
Speak out and over: “All who read this...”
