These ones have invested untold number of dollars and years learning what they know, why should they give it to me for free? That’s just not the way things are done in this world. So, who is imposing on who? Am I not imposing on them with my outlandish request to give me I pay you later? Ah but we humans!
- In the other hand, I am told in Romans 13:7: Render to all men their dues. Pay taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, and honor to whom honor is due.
Ah! Now I see it, O my Father—O Father of mine, I see it. You are so clever! So that’s how You are infusing Your wisdom within my being. Religion, religious people, sensible people, good teachers have quoted those words to me. They have tried all kinds of ways to help me to absorb those words to no avail.
Suddenly, without premeditation or studying or any attempt to apply or understand such words, the two edge Sword has cut through me on this instant of time as it is written,
For the Word that the Almighty speaks is alive and full of power making it active, operative, energizing, and effective; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and the immortal spirit, and of joints and marrow of the deepest parts of our nature, exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenseless to the eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.
Wow! Wow! Wow! No human being has ever been able to make those words alive within my being before this moment of time. Why? The secret is in those words, “the Word that the Almighty speaks’. The Word that the Almighty speaks not the words that yours truly along with the rest speak as a rule.
You see it, my friend? There is wisdom, power, life in these words that I am writing but, not because I have studied or struggled to become wise, powerful and lively; not at all! This wisdom is not mine. This wisdom is the Almighty’s wisdom all the way!
