see man from afar,
see man from closeup,
see man as he wishes,
see man as he is.
of his creation,
know man very well –
both in his failings and in his successes;
both in his sliding down the slippery slope of Satan and in his reaching for the stars of God;
both in the worship of his gods and in the devotion to his God.
am not surprised by man –
either in the depths of his iniquities or in the heights of his altruism.
commend man for his faith,
rebuke man for his carnality;
encourage man to walk the road of discipleship,
discourage man who would follow the enticements of Satan;
extend My hand in fellowship,
withdraw My hand upon refusal.
would rather willingly honour the freewill of man,
than being entailed to proceed in respect of that freewill.
dictate this letter to all those upon the earth,
My book of My eternity,
My book of My disclosures,
My book of My encouragements:
with an invitation born of grace –
for the acceptance by man in these days of dwindling freedom;
in these days of increasing distancing as the secular attempts to frustrate the
plans of God.
offer a life of understanding,
offer a life as promised,
offer a life of no regrets,
offer a life of close companionship,
offer a life of an enduring relationship,
offer a life with integrity of purpose in the walk with truth.
know the present from the past,
know the future from the present,
know the thoughts and will of man,
know the granting of man’s freewill which brings recrimination upon the head of God:
when man would move the responsibility from his own.
can read the heart of man for intent –
as it comes before me as an open book.
can purchase and redeem,
can locate and salve,
can offer and uphold.
can mend and heal,
can guide and teach,
can disciple and instruct.
can speak and be heard,
can issue and confirm,
can call and task:
from the sanctum of God –
from the temple of My Spirit,
from within the glove of the spirit and the soul –
the confines of My saints.
speak a welcome to man with a willing spirit:
yet adrift within the wilderness of the secular;
yet lost within the jungles of the cities;
yet distraught within the fields of temptation on the plains which border the deserts of despair.
offer living water to the thirsty,
offer victory to the fallen,
offer credence to the liars,
offer restitution to the thieves,
offer new life to the squanderers.
offer grace to all who stand in conviction of My Spirit,
who desire to make all well.
My book of letters:
to the silenced spirit,
to the broken soul,
to the captured body –
that freedom may break forth as the leaves in spring,
to blossom with the sun in the unending days of summer –
with the slaking of the thirst –
with the restoring of the body soul and spirit.”
