“Understanding the Reality of God”
In the vision, I saw a scroll descend before me and it was full of light. Then I saw a pen descend and hover in front of me. The scroll and the pen were both solid and light. I reached up to take hold of the scroll and the pen. The scroll was shining and contained life. When I touched it, it vibrated in my hand. It was like a flowing screen. The pen was also alive, and its ink was light. When the ink touched the scroll it came alive too, and words flowed from it like water onto the scroll (living screen).
The Lord then said, "this is a picture for you of how I write the knowledge of Me into your spirit and soul. My thoughts, (which are higher than yours) descend from above like the scroll. My Spirit writes or projects My Word onto the screen of your spirit and soul with light. My light then engages and activates your spirit and soul with life and with the greater reality of Me. Your spirit and soul then receives that light and knowledge as truth, which then becomes part of your inner man."
"When My thoughts and words dwell within you, then the life that is within can nourish your heart, your soul, and your flesh. I am Life. My Son is Life. My Spirit is Life. My Words are Life. My Thoughts are Life. When you engage My Life, and are obedient to walk in it, then it will unfold even more within you, and flow like living streams of light, and your entire being can then grow up into the greater knowledge of Me. You are to feed upon Me, and live by My Life and Light, and become as My Light, so that in all that you say and do I can be clearly seen and known."
Life, Light, Scroll, Pen:
1 John 1: [We are writing] about the Word of Life [in] Him Who existed from the beginning, Whom we have heard, Whom we have seen with our [own] eyes, Whom we have gazed upon [for ourselves] and have touched with our [own] hands. And the Life [an aspect of His being] was revealed (made manifest, demonstrated), and we saw [as eyewitnesses] and are testifying to and declare to you the Life, the eternal Life [in Him] Who already existed with the Father and Who [actually] was made visible (was revealed) to us [His followers]. What we have seen and [ourselves] heard, we are also telling you, so that you too may realize and enjoy fellowship as partners and partakers with us. And [this] fellowship that we have [which is a distinguishing mark of Christians] is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah). ...
2 Corinthians 3:1 Are we starting to commend ourselves again? Or we do not, like some [false teachers], need written credentials or letters of recommendation to you or from you, [do we]? [No] you yourselves are our letter of recommendation (our credentials), written in your hearts, to be known (perceived, recognized) and read by everybody. You show and make obvious that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, not written with ink but with [the] Spirit of [the] living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
Writing and imprinting upon hearts and minds:
Psalms 105:8 He is [earnestly] mindful of His covenant and forever it is imprinted on His heart, the word which He commanded and established to a thousand generations,
Deuteronomy 30:14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your mind and in your heart, so that you can do it.
Deuteronomy 11:18 Therefore you shall lay up these My words in your [minds and] hearts and in your [entire] being, and bind them for a sign upon your hands and as forehead bands between your eyes.
Deuteronomy 6:5 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being and with all your might. 6 And these words which I am commanding you this day shall be [first] in your [own] minds and hearts; [then] 7 You shall whet and sharpen them so as to make them penetrate, and teach and impress them diligently upon the [minds and] hearts of your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up.
Psalms 45:1 My heart overflows with a goodly theme; I address my psalm to a King. My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
Colossians 3:16 Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence andwisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.
Feeding upon Christ; the Light, the Living Springs:
Psalms 37:3 Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, andtruly you shall be fed. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.
Isaiah 49:8 Thus says the Lord, In an acceptable and favorable time I have heard and answered you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you; and I will preserve you and give you for a covenant to the people, to raise up andestablish the land [from its present state of ruin] and to apportion and cause them to inherit the desolate [moral wastes of heathenism, their] heritages, 9 Saying to those who are bound, Come forth, and to those who are in [spiritual] darkness, Show yourselves [come into the light of the Sun of righteousness]. They shall feed in all the ways [in which they go], and their pastures shall be [not in deserts, but] on all the bare [grass-covered] hills. 10 They will not hunger or thirst, neither will mirage [mislead] or scorching wind or sun smite them; for He Who has mercy on them will lead them, and by springs of water will He guide them.
2 Peter 1:3 For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). 4 By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature.
His scroll is unrolling within us, and then through us. We are becoming as He is – it begins within us first - and then outwardly, as we go. His words of Life will burn within us, and flow out of us, to do His will in the earth.
- Read all of Ezekiel Chapters 1-3 in the Amplified Version for more understanding of this entire interaction.
Ezekiel 3:1 He said to me, Son of man, eat what you find [in this book]; eat this scroll; then go and speak to the house of Israel. 2 So I opened my mouth, and He caused me to eat the scroll. 3 And He said to me, Son of man, eat this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it. Then I ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. 4 And He said to me, Son of man, go, get you to the house of Israel and speak to them with My words. 5 For you are not sent to a people of a foreign speech and of a difficult language but to the house of Israel; 6 Not to many peoples of foreign speech and of a hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, had I sent you to such people, they would have listened to you and heeded My words. 7 But the house of Israel will not listen to you and obey you since they will not listen to Me and obey Me, for all the house of Israel are impudent and stubborn of heart. 8 Behold, I have made your face strong andhard against their faces and your forehead strong and hard against their foreheads. 9 Like an adamant harder than flint or a diamond point have I made your forehead; fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house. 10 Moreover, He said to me, Son of man, all My words that I shall speak to you, receive in your heart and hear with your ears. 11 And go, get you to the [Jewish] captives [in Babylon], to the children of your people, and speak to them and tell them, Thus says the Lord God, whether they will hear or refuse to hear. 12 Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing [saying], Blessed be the glory of the Lord from His place [above the firmament]. 13 I heard the noise of the wings of the living creatures as they touched and joined each one the other [its sister wing], and I heard the noise of the wheels beside them and the noise of a great rushing. 14 So the Spirit lifted me up and took me away [in the vision], and I went in bitterness [of discouragement] in the heat of my spirit; and the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.
We will speak forth that which has been formed within us, and as we speak out His Words, they will be done in the earth.
God wants to be seen and heard, and He wants all men to receive Him, so they can walk in the knowledge of Him.
God is writing new things within us all, and we shall understand, and be read of by all men!
