Cast Up A Highway



(1) Running Like a Movie

Posted on August 4, 2016 at 3:40 PM

Good morning my marvelous Lord! You who created this magnificent universe and this world in it! Thank You! The wonderful plan You began thousands of years ago is still running, like a movie. Only YOU know how it ends; but You have given us clues like a treasure map hidden in a book called the Bible. We also call it “the Word” or the “Living Word”. Why is it called that?

A clue is found in the Book of John Chapter One:

John 1:1-15 (AMPC)

1 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ),

and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.

2 He was present originally with God.

3 All things were made and came into existence through Him;

and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.

4 In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.

5 And the Light shines on in the darkness,

for the darkness has never overpowered it

[put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].

6 . . .

9. . .

12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name—

13 Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!]

14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth.

Jesus is “the Word”, the "Living Word". It’s a clue wrapped in a mystery. In the Bible, the Word of God, there is all truth. There is also life for us. The Bible is actually an Instruction Manual on how to live life to the fullest and best. Any who choose to study it and follow it’s guide (who is Jesus who sends us Holy Spirit, the third person of the Holy Trinity) will have advantage over others in the world.

Ah, yes, another mystery wrapped up in the words of the Bible. The Holy Spirit is God. Our entire Godhead is made up of three Persons. I sorta see it~ to help me get a glimmer of understanding I look at us: we are made in God’s image and likeness and we are made up of soul, spirit and body ~ three parts. Our soul has three parts: mind, will and emotions. Not one part is the sum and substance of who we are, but put together we are wholly ourselves.

God Himself is so far above us that we’ll never on this earth fully understand who He is. But the Word of God teaches us a lot about Him and His character. God the Father sent God the Son to be born upon the earth as a human being so that He could teach us about the Father, and so He could perform the ultimate sacrifice to cleanse the human race of the sin nature; this we inherited from Adam, original man, through his blood coursing down through the centuries.

Adam sinned against God by turning against God; he allowed himself to be deceived and believed God’s enemy Satan. In so doing Adam condemned us all to live and be influenced by the devil’s evil ways. All the beauty God put in man was tainted by evil.

But God the Father refused to let His beloved children go. So He had a plan to save us all. The only way to mitigate this sin of man against God was to have a God-man pay the sin debt. Jesus, Son of God, second person of the Holy Trinity loves mankind also and agreed to leave His home in Heaven, and come to live on earth as a human man.

Jesus became the God-man capable of removing the stain of sin from mankind. In so doing, He made it possible for mankind to once again have an intimate relationship with the Godhead. Jesus cleansed the blood of man with His shed blood; so any person who accepts Jesus’ gift of redemption has their blood cleansed of the stain of that original sin, and become actual children of God rather than children of the devil.

John 8:44 (NKJV)

You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do.

He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him.

When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Now once cleansed, does that mean we never sin again? No, we are human and thus imperfect. Yet we are redeemed, so our life from salvation on is a gift of growing and learning how to be more perfect. God loves us so much He does not leave us to our own devices to figure it out, Hesends the Third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit to actually live in us:

John 14:26 [AMP]

But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby),

the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name

[in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf],

He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall

(will remind you of, bring to your remembrance)

everything I have told you.

Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to indwell us. Jesus as a man cannot be everyplace at once, but the Holy Spirit can. He can indwell as many as invite Him in to help. So we end up having God Himself living in us as our teacher and guide. What more do we need?

Remember that there are three persons in God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit who together make up the Godhead. See, another mystery wrapped up in words. But do not get tangled up in the mysteries, rather focus on the main truth. God loves us, created us to love and serve Him on this earth and to be happy with Him in heaven. Overall, that simple catechism answer is the whole truth.

God loves you just as you are. Once you choose to get to know Him, seek Him with your whole heart, He will reveal Himself to you and bring you to where you need to be. He makes it easy not difficult. We make it difficult by not trusting Him, and by being disobedient to His laws of life.

What are God’s laws of life?

[to be continued]

I have to show some appreciation to you for rescuing me from this type of situation. Just after exploring through the search engines and getting tricks which are not powerful, I figured my entire life was gone. Being alive without the presence of strategies to the issues you've solved by means of your write-up is a critical case, as well as ones that might have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I hadn't come across your blog post. That know-how and kindness in dealing with every aspect was very useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a thing like this.

                                        AWESOME GOD


Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
