“The sparkle of a diamond as cut and polished by man is beautiful to behold,
is beautiful to wear,
is beautiful to own,
is beautiful as a repository of wealth,
is beautiful as the size increases,
is beautiful as it transfers through the generations.
The sparkle of a diamond as prepared by God is not limited by size,
is a blaze of light,
is triumphant in its presence,
is not contaminated by value,
is spectacular in appearance,
is a raiser of appreciation,
is seen in decoration of My garden.
The sparkle of a diamond reflects the eyes of God,
reflects the light of God,
reflects the purity of God.
The sparkle of a diamond is the standard of eternal life set for existence in My garden.
The sparkle of a diamond neither fades nor wears away within eternity of My garden,
only is besmeared within mortality:
where it is treated as a depository –
for that which would diminish its sparkle as prescribed by man.
The sparkle of a diamond is not an innate property of a diamond;
depends upon the light available for re-direction,
depends upon the source,
depends upon intensity,
depends upon surroundings,
depends upon the size,
depends upon the purity,
depends upon the cut.
The sparkle of a diamond is the end result of skill:
governed both by knowledge mixed with wisdom –
to release the sparkle from what lies upon a bench.
The sparkle of a diamond emerges from the rough:
under hands of capability both guiding and directing;
under hands born both of practise and experience;
under hands both persevering and completing.
The sparkle of a diamond is substantive in its presence.
The sparkle of a diamond has its parallel in man:
has its parallel in his birth into mortality;
has its parallel with his development from the rough;
has its parallel with care in loving hands;
has its parallel with the shedding of impurities;
has its parallel with the ability of his shining;
has its parallel with the brightness of his light;
has its parallel with his selection for presence in My garden;
has its parallel as he dwells within the purity of eternity –
so enabling a reflection in the eyes of God.
The sparkle of a diamond should not remain hidden in an unfound stone,
should not remain lying without an opportunity to change,
should not forever be remaining as it was –
never to attain its full potential so its glory may shine forth.
The sparkle of a diamond should be the goal of man:
to be found both ready and waiting and willing to be changed by a master craftsman;
to attain the fullness of the promise as purity is achieved;
to be selected to dwell forever within My garden –
in a place which is prepared.
The sparkle of a diamond sparkles still in the presence of man:
is no longer overshadowed by man;
is no longer gathered selfishly by man;
is no longer placed where the sun can no longer reach –
where trips outside are mostly in the darkness –
when only lit by the lights of man.
The sparkle of a diamond is designed to sparkle all its life,
is designed to remind man of its being,
of the changes wrought,
of how it has been changed.
The sparkle of a diamond is subject to how man’s possessive strength has overlain its freedom –
to keep it in the darkness where its sparkle is not seen,
to hide it in a vault from where it is not easily released,
to prevent admiring eyes appreciating its history of creation –
and the testimony it bears.
The sparkle of a diamond still keeps its affinity with the parallel of man:
who is also designed to sparkle all his life;
to remind man of the changes made within a life;
of how such display in fullness with amazement on completion.
The sparkle of a diamond has its parallel in the freewill of man:
his coating of the contaminants of life which prevent his shining;
of his imprisonment within the vaults of Satan where his glory is not realised,
where his testimony is not established for qualifying a future both in time and space.
The sparkle of a diamond should be sought by man:
that he too should sparkle as he was born to do;
that he may participate in The Bride of Christ –
to be part of the glory of the sparkling that will surround the bridegroom –
in the presence of The Father where the testimonies are heard in receiving His acceptance.”
