From the Pulpit & Into the Garden: "Grow Where You are Planted – Scatter Seeds of Inspiration!"

Son Day for Sunday – I Am Waiting for You!

“I am waiting for you to gather with me on this Resurrection Morn”

Do I have your attention?

It is only when you are broken that you really seek me. When your heart and your spirit have been shattered into pieces is when I have your complete attention; like “Humpty Dumpty” being put back together again.

Remember what I said: “This is my broken body that I am giving up for your healing; always do this in memory of me!”

Brokenness does not mean defeat. It is a sign you can be put back together with God doing the repairs, “I didn’t have to walk that path. I did it for you!”

As the sun rises, the stone door has been rolled away:

“My soul awaits for the Light of you, Awaken, Arise and Be.”

Yeshua steps out and greets the dawn of this new day and so do you.

Here’s a question for you to ponder:

“Are you ready to come forward and be with me? All that is past is gone.”

Empty yourself so I can fill you!

 “Let’s meet in the breaking of the bread.”

Beyond the Tomb – Bearing Fruit

BearingFruitMar13

“I search the mind. I try the heart, even to give man according to his ways; according to the fruit of his doings.” (KATL)

We now move beyond Jerusalem. So much has happened in just a few days.
Our focus, in this spiritual New Year, is how we bear fruit as individuals, and as a community, while acknowledging the good works that have begun.
Spiritual signs of growth and newness come to me in my blessed garden.
I have a special pear tomato plant that I rescued from a local clearance table last fall. It has flowered and produced tomatoes all winter. Now into spring it is repeating the process, encouraging the other plants around it to come alive.
The Loquat Tree (a cross between a mini plum and pear) has produced beautiful and very sweet fruit. The birds and other critters in the neighborhood have picked from the vine as well.
My favorite Lemon Tree has so many blossoms and the smell is like heaven.
These signs of renewal are encouraging one to maintain the course.
The field is open wide and so are God’s Blessings!

Jesus of the Resurrection

Isn’t it better to be rising rather than falling? Perhaps this excerpt, “Risen Life” taken from “God Calling” for April 9th will swing open wide the door of hope for those who serve Him so diligently:
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is raised upon thee.” (Isaiah 60:1)
The Call comes on this My Day for all who love me, to arise from earth-bands, from sin, and sloth and depression, distrust, fear, all that hinders the Risen Life. To arise to Beauty, to Holiness, to Joy, to Peace, to work inspired by Love and Joy, to rise from death to Life; remember that death was the last enemy I destroyed. So with death my victory was complete. You have nothing then to fear.
Sin, too, is conquered and forgiven, as you live and move and work with me.
All that depresses you, all that you fear, are powerless to harm you. They are but phantoms. The real forces I conquered in the wilderness, the Garden of Gethsemane, on the Cross, and in the Tomb.
Let nothing hinder your Risen Life. “Risen with Christ,” said my servant Paul. Seek to know more and more of that Risen Life. That is the Life of Conquest. Of that Risen Life was it truly said: “I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me.”
Fear and despair and tears come as you stand by the empty Tomb.
“They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.”
Rise from your fears and go out into the sunlight to meet me, your Risen Lord, “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” (Philippians 3:10)
