Father, the electricity is gone again. And while there is no electricity, the whole spectrum of what is coming to us in the near future comes to mind; for You have shown me the most ominous darkness that will soon approach us announcing the end time storm of storms! And, like the prophet Habakkuk I can exclaim,
I heard and my [whole inner self] trembled; my lips quivered at the sound. Rottenness enters into my bones and under me [down to my feet]; I tremble. I will wait quietly for the day of trouble and distress when there shall come up against [my] people him who is about to invade and oppress them.
Though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines, [though] the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls,
Yet I will rejoice in Yahuwah; I will exult in the [victorious] Mighty One of my salvation! [Rom. 8:37.]
Almighty Yahuwah is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]! End of quote.
My Words …
Oh my Father! How exactly true to these words is my stand! And to think that You are the One Who has given me this strength and stability is beyond words to describe!
Yet, to continue on with my deliberations with You my Father, I wonder, how can Your children claim their heavenly citizenship without the personal intimate knowledge and acquaintance with You?
Yes, I know my Father that many claim to have this knowledge and to know You intimately and personally. Notwithstanding, for the most part all most of these people, when it comes to the core of things, they only have a show of self-righteousness demonstrated by the many rituals that they practice.
One of the saddest things is what I have observed through the years. Through the years I have observed and supported many sincere believers because of their good heart.
I also submitted myself to many that were serious students of the Word and had many good ‘Scriptural teachings’ for my spiritual growth or so I thought.
