Genesis 19:1 KJV
And there came two angels to Sodom at even, and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
“Those that would have communion with God must earnestly desire it and pray for it.”
In the following paragraphs, we find what the Lord means by being earnest. In an earlier article, we were shown the importance of words and how to use them.
Here is an opportunity to apply a [Living Word,] that word being “Earnest” defined carnally as a serious and intent mental state, then as a [Living Word,] adding the following to our spiritual discernment, and understanding sincerity, not lighthearted or being playful, determined, great in degree, very strong, showing great energy, enthusiasm or effort.
It becomes those whom God has blessed with additional discernment and understanding through Living Words to be according to their ability, liberal and open-hearted in their demonstrations of Yeshua’s love and compassion, and (not in compliment, but cordially) to bid friends and strangers welcome. We should take pleasure in showing kindness to any for both God and man love a cheerful giver. Who would eat the bread of him that has an evil eye?
Lot’s, entertainment, though it was very free, was plain and homely, and there was nothing in it of the gaiety and niceness of our times. His dining-room was an arbour under a tree no rich table-linen, no side-board set with a plate. His feast was a joint or two of veal, and some cakes baked on the hearth, and both hastily dressed up. Here were no dainties, no varieties, no forced-meats, no sweet-meats, but good, plain, wholesome food, and Lot’s guests were very honourable.
You think to pay respect to those who cross your path as a friend. You take them to be a friend because they compliment you. “But as they believe in their heart so they are, not as they speak.” We present, both to God and man, what we are inward, neither spirituality nor friendship, if it is not sincere has any value.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
Hebrews 13:2 “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” My thoughts are with the victims of any disaster that may have occurred or is about to occur. I follow and walk the belief that we all are here to share with those who pass through our lives. I am not talking about the general public but those who Our Heavenly Father draws into our lives for a reason or purpose. Which in most cases we won’t immediately understand or maybe are not meant to understand. Time usually brings out the purpose, whether it’s for a quick moment or a lengthy encounter, time will eventually reveal the reason each individual has been brought into our lives.
There are a lot of names being placed on this type of occurrences, I prefer to think that Our heavenly Father has a reason & purpose and as His instrument or tool, I need to be able to read, understand, and react to this encounter, in a manner which allows us to connect, and Our Lord’s Will to be done.
I recognize, that it can be a simple word between us or a sentence of encouragement or just a simple glance, and nod of approval, or acknowledgement or sometimes it is a sit-down cup of coffee conversation, the why really matters not.
I believe when individuals pass through my life’s journey, they have been lead there not by hap chance, but for a purpose, and by Our heavenly Father. However on the opposite side, as I am brought into others’ life journey I believe it was for a purpose, which I may or may not understand. I don’t ask, sharing what has been given to me freely, which in respect of a fellow soul, who may just need to hear a friendly hello, or hope you have a wonderful day, no matter the circumstances, or even just a smile, but certainly an acknowledgement I have passed through their journey and life.
Recognize, as you have been reading this, I have entered into your life’s journey and are passing through, leaving you a spiritual smile, and a farewell greeting of “May our Lord Bless you, your family, and those you encounter through your life’s journey”.
The one thing my life’s journey has taught me and those who have passed through it is to make your journey, an easy one to come to peace with yourself. Don’t take on burdens like fear, anger, resentments, vengeance, these actions only close the door to the Lord using you, as His tool or instrument. I guess you need to ask, “Where Am I going in my life’s Journey,” and the other thing is. “How will I get there in a rage or in peace”.
All my love goes out to those who have by reading this message, allowed me to pass through their Life’s Journey, and share. “God Bless” and Thank You
