Michael Jackson Justice: Signed, Sealed, To Be Delivered

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

Signed, Sealed, To Be Delivered


Securing The Gold







"The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe."


He doesn’t know how much it hurts.  He doesn’t know, but God knows.

He doesn’t know how many times I have cried after midnight, alone at this desk . . . but God knows.

He hasn’t heard my prayers for him late in the night, struggling because of a choice he unknowingly put upon me between him and God – but God knows and he’s heard my prayers.

He is unaware of the fear I struggle against as I watch them snuff out the light in his temple.  He believes they are right, or he may be confused . . . or maybe he just doesn’t believe at all.  God knows.

I love him, but I cannot follow him into this lie nor let him pull me down into the abyss because of an envy I cannot understand.  I wish to leave the worldly behind and he cannot seem to let it go.  There will be no turning away from a calling whether he believes I am worthy of it or not.  He is not the one that called me; he did not giveth and he will not taketh away.

I love him and I cannot make him see.  Only God can do that.

"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

8. I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

9. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee."

Certain burdens we are not meant to carry but Love knows its bearers.  God stands waiting for trust; a cherished vessel remains broken until you turn it over to the potter for repair.

I have also cried this week because of good things, such as the things the Lord has shown me.  There are not many people less credentialed, less experienced or less worthy than me to be given this passion and to be shown the truth;  That you who are reading this are loved . . . loved to the core of your being by a God that has moved time and events in order to reveal that love to you.

That the blood running through you will reveal the evidence of who God is; and that He has given you the power through the love of Christ Jesus, to put His Name back where it belongs -  in the very essence of you.

A wise prophet once said –

"For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.   31. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

32. But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;   33. Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.

34. For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance."

Now I understand what he meant when Paul said “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”.  I understand what Jesus meant when he said “There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's," (Mark 10:29).  In their hearts, had they truly left them?  Was it hard to leave the worldly, even when they are with Jesus during his life?

Paul reveals also in these few lines of his letter, the willingness of them to “take gladly the spoiling” of their “goods”.  What did he mean by this?  He is not talking about food or belongings but of “substance” as he reveals in verse 34; the “spoiling of your goods” because they knew that they had “in heaven a better and enduring substance”.  Substance is the very secret David talked about in Psalms 139:15-16.

The spoiling of “goods” is what we endure with now in our own temples of the body.  Just as Jesus “became the curse for us” (Galatians 3:13), we endure the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth (Zechariah 5:3) so that the iniquity will be consumed in one day (Zechariah 3:9) within us and the breach bindeth up by the Lord (Isaiah 30:26); the stroke of our wound will be healed in those last days that the towers fall (Isaiah 30:25).

Who awaits their cue?  Paul awaited death as he wrote to the few that understood him and his sacrifice.  He talked about “putting off my tabernacle”:

"Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.   13. Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;   14. Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.

15. Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.   16. For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty."


The Life, The Blood, The Light, The Spirit


On “Blood On The Dance Floor Part 2”, we searched the prophets of scripture for description of this substance from which all things are made; by rod, timber, stones, cord, wheels and bowls.  Ezekiel, Exodus and Deuteronomy contain scripture describing where the spirit is, which returns unto God who gave it, upon our decease.

On Sunday I posted this truth on Twitter and the reaction that came from names who didn’t even follow me was immediate and in packs.  This is what I posted, in order:

Wonders anew - #Jesus is not just another #religion.  He is the #restoration.

#Jesus_Christ is the WORD made flesh -

The #Word is within us albeit corrupted.

The #WORD was in the beginning with God.  The WORD IS God.

God is #LIFE and that life is the #LIGHT of men.

The #LIFE is in the #BLOOD - Jesus is the #Book_of_life

Which is the #Law undefiled within us

Once we #Believe on, and #LOVE him . . .

Because #LOVE is the one word that #Fulfills_all_the_law

That #Word_of_God is the #Seed which was promised through Abraham, that of #Christ_Jesus

#Jesus would #Restore_the_Law through his blood - Through the same #LOVE Abraham showed God through #Faith

If you don't believe #Faith can effect your #DNA, Just ask God, in #Jesus' name.

If you can't ask God in #Jesus_Name, then you are without faith in him

Jesus died for us because our #Faith and #Love is imperfect.  We are made #perfect through Christ

Greater #LOVE hath no man than this - that a man lay down his #life for his friends - John 15:13

The #POWER of the name of #Christ evokes strong reactions

The hearing of his #NAME either opens the ears, or opens the #mouth

Even the #Pharisees stalked #Jesus to shut him up

Because the #TRUTH took power away from men who sought to usurp connection to #God

#Jesus became a #quickening_spirit - Do you know what that means?

Quickening Spirit is #energy beyond the burden of #flesh.

Those of the world will not recognize God, which is the life that is the #light of men.

Because the #darkness comprehendeth it not.

#Jesus pushes back the #dark and fills the body with #light -

That light of #Christ is the #seal_of_God in our #book_of_the_law within us

#Faith is the ground in which the #Seed of the #Word of love grows

#Love was sent to us in #Flesh to show us how to follow him through the #veil

#Faith allows the seed of #The_Word to be cultivated in our #Book_of_The_Law.

#Jesus said, #have_faith and #keep_your_eyes_on_me

#Jesus . . . . #I_love_you

#Jesus_Christ - The first person to both live for the #truth and #die for it.

#Christ_Jesus is attacked more than any other person in history, even after his death.

#Jesus_Christ is also the only person in who's name others are attacked.

One has to wonder why the #hatred of #Christ, if they don't consider him a real person?

Whole religions have been created to counter #Christ.  Yet so few wonder why.

The early body of believers #Paul of Tarsus brought together were immediate targets for scriptural corruption.

If #Christ is made this much of a pariah, one has to wonder what #truth he taught that they don't want common man to have

#Jesus_Christ is the WORD made flesh - John 1:14

The #Word is within us and they don't want you to know it.


On Monday, I added this as it came to me:


#Saturation - is it the opposite of #consumption or the launch pad of cleansing?

What #Michael_Said -

A man who knew #The_Truth - Because he was #Saturated with it.

#Michael throughout the Bible - one #song revealed it all

And I posted this song, with a screen shot of the lyrics




Saturation, is it the opposite of consumption or the commencing of consumption?

The best illustration of this is the rod of Moses, which became a serpent when thrown down by Aaron in front of the Pharaoh.  The Pharaoh’s wizards threw down their rods which also became serpents.

Moses’ rod swallowed up the other serpents – “consumed” them, and became a rod again when Aaron picked it up, Exodus 7:9-12.

After the exodus from Egypt, another sign involving the serpent is told in the book of Numbers after the children of Israel disobey and begin to question God.  God sends serpents to bite them and a number of them are killed.  They again plead with Moses to go to God on their behalf and God tells Moses this:

"And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived."

The Serpent of brass is the rod of Aaron that became a serpent and consumed Egypt’s serpents.  The serpent of brass is Christ, who “being a curse for us” is “sent to Babylon for your sakes” to “take down their nobles”.

"And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.   13. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."

Jesus became the “curse” for us; the curse that goes forth over all the earth in Zechariah 5:3 and 4 to consume the iniquity out of the land in one day (Zechariah 3:9).  A separate place between the sanctuary and the profane place in the house where an ephah is it is taken to Babylon to be established and set there upon her own base (Zechariah 5:6-11).

A room within a room; a tabernacle within a sanctuary is the Lord sent to Babylon for our sakes.   Though Sheshbazzar is given the vessels of the temple of the Lord and lays the foundation, so Zerubbabel’s hands shall finish it though the glory for now is nothing as compared to the first.

"Thus saith the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships."


HIStory


Abraham began with love greater than self and faith that God would provide, even as he was asked to shed the blood of his only son, the son of promise.  So the seed was placed in the palm of His hand.

Isaac, the son of promise begat Jacob who laid his head on a stone to sleep and was shown the ladder of God.  He wrestled with an angel of the Lord, striving with Him and Israel was named.  Twelve of Jacob’s sons contributed to the stones of Israel, twelve tribes from which twelve thousand from each tribe would become the elect, set aside as jewels in the temple of God.

Forgetting God four hundred years in Egypt and God sent Moses, who began in Egypt as a protected soul in an ark made of reeds and hidden in the river.  Moses would eventually become their leader, with his brother Aaron and lead Israel out of captivity.  It was the rod which would first teach through Moses, the role of the serpent that would consume the other serpents before again becoming a rod.  The rod would also sport the fiery serpent of brass which all who had been bitten would look upon it and be saved.  The rod would be raised to push back the waters of the Red Sea, for Israel to cross on dry ground.

During their sojourn, the tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant and the Book of the Law on four tablets of stone are made manifest – figures of the true; both written by God.  But one set was broken by Moses in anger, and a second set of stones, cut out by man, Moses, contained the law which Moses would place in the Ark.

Joshua with the Ark of the Covenant, would lead the children of Israel to “pass over” the River Jordan on dry ground.  He would instruct the head of each tribe to take a stone out of the river and carry it upon dry ground where they lodged in Gilgal.  Then Joshua was instructed by God to take twelve stones and place them in Jordan as a memorial to Israel where they “are to this day”.  Twelve stones set up in Gilgal and twelve set up in Jordan from where they came – and a “river runs through it” (Ecclesiastes 1:7).

Israel with Joshua takes down the walls of Jericho on that other side of the Jordan, every man going “straight up before him”; this after seven days of sounding the trumpets upon which the final day, the seventh, the walls crumbled.

Samuel anoints Saul.  Saul falters and his charge David is chosen for the house of the name of God but his son Solomon is chosen to build it.  Solomon hires “craftsmen” from Tyre and King Hiram sends them to build the temple, with the tabernacle now separate from the sanctuary by a veil.

Solomon heaps riches, wives and chariots for himself, collecting taxes in the amount of six hundred threescore and six talents a year.  His wives persuade him to add to the house of God high places for their idols and Jerusalem falls to Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon.  The temple is destroyed, and the vessels of the house of God are carried to the temple in Babylon.

During the Babylon Nebuchadnezzar’s reign over Jerusalem and Judah a boy named Daniel is called to favor, interpreting dreams of the king that no one else could understand.  Daniel interprets the foreshadowing of the seven years with the beast, which Nebuchadnezzar serves eating grass as an ox for seven years. 

Daniel also is favored with numerous visits from the angel of the future time for which his visions foretell.  It is here that the great prince Michael is first mentioned by name to man regarding the end times.  It is here that Daniel is given details of the abomination in the temple and the polluting of the sanctuary of strength, and the timing of the seventy weeks, seven weeks and threescore and two weeks.

At the end of the seventy year exile of the nobles of Jerusalem and Judah, Nebuchadnezzar is destroyed and Cyrus puts forth the order to rebuild the walls of the city.  He also entrusts the vessels of gold and silver that were taken from the temple in Jerusalem to Babylon, to one Sheshbazzar who’s name means “protector of the seed/incubator”.  He lays the foundation of the temple that was not yet finished, governor of Judah who is also Zerubbabel who’s name means “Seed of” or “sown” in Babylon”.

Zerubbabel is told to “be strong”.  On the twenty and fourth day of the ninth month, he is told to consider the work of their hands and that they are unclean, but to work because God is with them.  He tells them “is the seed yet in the barn?  From this day I will bless you”.

Every son of man called by God is recounted in the record of “The Preacher”, Ecclesiastes meaning “Gatherer” in the Greek.  Ecclesiastes speaks of vanity of every one of the sons of men; but he also foretells of the one who comes out of prison, the “second child” who “stands up in his stead”.

Isaiah divides the characteristics of the “Son of man” and his return, but one and the same in spirit – He who bears our iniquities, and he who buried with the wicked and the rich in his death but who’s life is prolonged so the pleasure of the Lord prospers in his hand.

So each son of man who teaches and prophecies carries a stone within their book that is laid in the temple.  And upon these stones is the temple built.



A Potter's Work on the Wheels


And the Word came to Jeremiah from the Lord, and the Lord showed him the potter, so he would understand (hear) God’s words.

"The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,   2. Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.   3. Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.

4. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.   5. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,   6. O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel."

The Potter wrought the work on the wheels – and the vessel he made of clay was marred, so he made another that seemed good.  God says, “cannot I do with you as this potter?”

Moses carried the law down from the mountain in the presence of a disobedient children.  Moses broke the stones and was made by God to cut new ones on which God would again write the law.

The potter “wrought a work on the wheels”.

"Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels."

The potter has the power over the clay, to make one vessel to honor or to dishonor

"Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?"

We are told by Paul to “bear your vessels in honor” (1 Thess. 4:4), and that our “bodies” are “the temple” (John 2:21, 1 Corinth. 6:19), and that the Lord dwells NOT in a house made with hands.

God dwells not in temples made with hands.  God our father is the potter, of men of clay.

"But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand."

The craftsmen work in stone, men of clay construct men of clay but cannot be gods because without God they have not the Spirit to give:

"Moreover there are workmen with thee in abundance, hewers and workers of stone and timber, and all manner of cunning men for every manner of work."

The masons, the craftsmen built David a house -

"And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David an house.   12. And David perceived that the Lord had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel's sake."

The house of God did Solomon then have built, by the king of Tyre which is Tyrus, who was in the garden of God, and who had every manner of beautiful stone ; and the pipes and tabrets which God has prepared in him from the day he was created; and who walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire (Ezekiel 28:12-14).

The temple is builded again, the house of God when Sheshbazzar was given the vessels of gold and silver out of Babylon -

"Be it known unto the king, that we went into the province of Judea, to the house of the great God, which is builded with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goeth fast on, and prospereth in their hands."

The stones of Israel were taken out of the Jordan by the priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant as Joshua instructed.  They crossed the Jordan on dry land because of the Ark, and Joshua was instructed to place the stones in Jordan as a memorial to Israel, which are there to this day.

God instructed workers to build Him a house, a “figure of the true” from which the “true” would be revealed.  The men of conceit, there “schemes and their plans” are shown to Daniel that they would seek to mingle their seed with the seed of men, as clay is not mixed with iron:

"And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.   42. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

43. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.."

Yet the profaning of the house of God, and His name would God permit, and our patience and faith is asked of us.  The curse foretold in the book of the law when Moses prophesied the disobedience of Israel would come full circle, so that what was corrupted would be restored.



Restoring The Word Of God In You


Jesus provided the pure language, the Word made flesh and the life which is the light of men which is the Spirit which God gives; this pure “seed” is the life which is in the wheels of the creatures, which is in the blood.

With the “seed” which is the “Word of God” in the barn, then the “curse” that goes forth over the whole earth could be overspread.  The “flying roll” would enter the house of the “thief” and the liar and consume the stones and the timber therein; but the ephah, which the women with wings of storks carried between the heaven and the earth would be taken to Babylon (land of Shinar) to build it a house where it would be “established” and set on her own base.

The prophet Michael surnamed Jackson called this lady “Diana”, “Susie” and “Billie Jean” amongst others in his songs.  And he was the chosen one from whose vessel shall incubate both the curse of the law, and cure of the pure language.  Yea, the tabernacle of the testimony will be opened within him, and in him will Spirit overcome the flesh in the sight of men.

His “soul is not upright within him, but the just shall live by his faith” – Habukkuk 2:4.

"Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the Lord, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent."



The prophet Malachi talked about the book of remembrance that was written before the Lord, for those that thought upon His name and loved him.

“Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

17. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.   18. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not."

That book of remembrance which truth you read of its passages here, is also a “figure of the true” – that is the book of remembrance is written within those whom God set aside – the sealed, as Paul reminded them in the second letter of Peter and the letter of Jude:

Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.  13.  Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;"

"I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not."

The “elect” which when the “numbers are complete” of those souls who are killed as they under the alter had been, would come to one hundred, forty and four thousand; twelve thousand of each of the twelve tribes of Israel shown John in Revelation.

Those same that “shall return” to discern between the righteous and the wicked, and those that serveth God are the same which “The Gatherer” in Ecclesiastes speaks of when he says “and I returned again, to see”  all that is done under the sun.

"So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter."

"Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun."

"I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all."


Here I Am


And the singers and the poets have written of him whereas before God told them, they did not know who he was:

Child in the Wings

As your book of life was opened
Destined was your name
Songs laid bare before you
Childhood yields to fame
Early start at reaching back
For time lost to the lights
Sacrificing playtime smiles
To dancing in the night

Maverick in the Spotlight
A child in the wings
Doors of souls are opened
Every time he sings
Tears are for the lonely
Staging every dream
Maverick in the spotlight
A child in the wings

The message God had given
Spoken through your songs
From the heart of innocence
Tell me what went wrong
A second childhood splintered
Press denial of truth
Our maverick forced in exile
Another wounded youth

Maverick in the spotlight
A child’s folded wings
No longer his soul mourning
No longer hear him sing
Those who judged the lonely
Silencing the dream
Maverick in the lovelight
A child earned his wings

“Last time we spoke, you said you were hurting, and I felt your pain in my heart.  And I want to tell you, that I keep on praying love will find you where you are . . .”

The Words I Would Say
Released August 25, 2009
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/These_Simple_Truths
four days before Michael's birthday, two months
after he "passed".

When I wrote this, I didn’t know him, but I did.  I knew he loved God.  Everything comes to and flows back through God.  The most loved prophets are the unhindered amplifiers of the character of God.

Feathers on the Wind

Did anyone ever hear him
Through the rush of angels wings
Did anybody see him
Through the feathers on the wind?

Did any of you care
That he was going down
By the workers of iniquity
Who handed him his crown

Would any of us help him
If he were here today
Could you cry for him
Can you recall his name

Did anyone believe him
When in danger he cried out
Paper twisted ruthless lies
In a mirage of doubt

A shadow of his former fame
Sequestered in his hell
Strangers playing ruthless games
He withers in his cell

Second coming so said they
Who handed him his name
“This is It”, then came the day
His fate became the same

Then the world would ask them
You really did not see?
The shadow of his former fame
Driven to his knees?

A final feather’s breath he sighed
Before his spirit flew
The angels wings reaching high
The former fame renewed

The world again will never know
An angel of this feather
The wings of he will never grow
On the shoulders of another

So if you ever see him
That feather from his wing
Lighting on your shoulder
And sudden hear him sing

Remember you can hear him
Through the rush of angels wings
Rejoice because you see him
That feather on the wind

“I know the fight is on the way when the sides have been chosen”

Take Back Your Former Throne

Michael was reported to have said in his home before leaving on the first day of testimony of the 2005 trial “It is written of me in the books.  I have proven my part.  Now God will be their judge”.

No one but he and God knows for sure if this is what he said, or if those that market his image manufactured the quote.  But one prophet did write this almost word for word, in his letter to the Hebrews:

"For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.   5. Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:   6. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

7. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

8. Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;   9. Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second."

And she offered prayers up for him, travailing as in birth for he who would be taken out of the way, protected from the profane place.

Only Faith

Still the air in silent room
Tears of satin fall
Looking up she asks the one
Where did you leave me now

Five hundred ten days he was gone
A heart that wants to close
Opened by a tragedy
Where pain and anguish flows

The strength she finds to move along
Within a mystery
Is borrowed from the one she seeks
Within his melody

Lyrics fold around her frame
Lies, deceptions glance
Devouring the solid ground
On which she used to dance

Her heart open, raw and torn
She crumbles to the floor
Facing yet another day
Of illusion, tricks and lore

Silent battles right for wrong
She navigates alone
On the field in which he fell
She now stands on her own

Grasping in a darkened space
She’s looking for the truth
Perfidious the path can be
She stumbles on the roots

Calling out to he who shared
His woe and misery
How much longer will it be
Til loves’ song reaches me?

Truth he calls is worth the fight
There is no ecstasy
Only faith can move you now
Just keep your eyes on me

Looking up she takes the hand
Of he who wove in song
Hope in store for every child
Displacing what went wrong

Waking to the memory
Another day of choice
Silent tears of satin fall
A thirst to hear his voice

We are all but strangers and pilgrims on the earth.  As the rivers flow into the sea and never empty out, returning to its source to flow again so are we who have been established in the substance of God.

Love opens the gate; faith restores the relationship.  The man who wrote that he had no country now has a heavenly one, even as the evil one runs up and down through his house; he was taken out of the way, caught up to God and to his throne.

Faith we are told we must have, and patience we need for the promise:

"Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.   12. Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

13. These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.   15. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.   16. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city."

The sanctuary he once occupied will be used by another.  This will wreak havoc and chaos like there has never been since there was a nation because this one knows now that he has a short time.

I remember the beginning of all this.  I met Michael at the heart of Christ, with whom he has been all along; no longer in body but in Spirit which prayed through me, for him.  He is in a safe place.  Jermaine his brother knows it, but most of all, God told me this is true.

I know for a time that the comforter will be out of the way, and I know now why.  It will hurt, but the pain will be short lived.  For him though, for Christ who suffered for us we must make a stake of faith and drive it full into the ground on which we stand and not move – be not moved.

For a little while longer, Incomplete

Hold tight to the things you have been given and forget not the scriptures and what they have revealed unto you.

"Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee."

Seek out of the book of the Lord, and your place in it:

Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.   17. And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein."

Stand fast and do not fall for the promises of the son of perdition who appeals to the flesh.  This dangerous deception that the son of perdition has anything in Christ, which Jesus himself told us he did not.

"Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me."

They will use him, the vessel to allure through the lusts of the flesh and the things of the world:

"For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error."

The pride of life and the lust of the eyes is of the world, not of the Father:

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."

Do not be deceived.  The sons of men have inhabited many vessels.  It was never about the temple, which is dull as lead without the Spirit.  It has always been about the Word, the Light, the Spirit of he who gives Life.

"Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.   22. And of some have compassion, making a difference:

23. And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh."

Now that you know, it will be a fight to keep it from being taken from you.  Let him go in the flesh, hold fast in the Spirit.  Because God keeps His promises and His law will be restored in you, in a new heaven and a new earth.

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."

"This Is Not Goodbye"

I can see it in your eyes that you are restless
The time has come for you to leave
It’s so hard to let you go but in this life I know
You have to be who you were made to be

As you step out on the road I’ll say a prayer
So that in my heart you always will be there

[Chorus:]
This is not goodbye
I know we’ll meet again
So let your life begin
‘Cause this is not goodbye
It’s just “I love you” to take with you
Until you’re home again

The stirring in your soul has left you wondering
Should you stay or turn around
Well, just remember that your dreams they are a promise
That you were made to change the world
So don’t let fear stop you now . . ."
"This Is Not Goodbye" - Sidewalk Prophets


Before I knew who he was, I knew him.  Before I knew what his songs meant, I loved him.

Before I knew Michael and Jesus were one, I told him “I know who you are”.  And before he was “buried with the wicked and the rich in his death” he held me in his arms as I told him “I love you, do you know that”?

This was the love we have all looked for.  What he was given is what everyone wants.  What I was given, I can never repay.  I was never worthy; but oh, the knowing you are made for this!  To give yourself for this love no one understands until they take that step against everything that has bound them here.  It is only because of grace that my eyes were opened, and only because of love that I can see.
