there's a temple
it's aged and pristine
a glorious monument
there's a cross in this temple
an image solidified to this cross
I look at it
I crumble inside
for they do not know
there was this boy
He watched His parents work
He did what He could to help
but He kept hearing a voice
from why deep inside
'do not be afraid
you'll soon remember'
you see, I was veiled, too
so that I could learn truth
it is normal to feel different
when our Father speaks to you
He changes you
the deeper parts of you
so do not fear
it is more normal
than living on earth
to believe is to truly feel
this unquenchable desire
way deep in the heart
to love our Father
with everything we have
it is normal...to feel this love
when the heart is pure
it is normal to question yourself
for to offend our Father
is the worse thing
for a believer to do
rest in Him
the one who gives life
for He also takes life
be patient in your rest
go about daily chores
forget your troubles
trust in Him
our Father knows
come to Me
and I will show you Him
love is all you need
a heart bursting with joy
for each other
without curses and hate
lean on Me
I'll make your burdens light
trust in God's journey
He will make you whole
let Me comfort you
invite Me in
I'll pave the way to the kingdom
in love, through our Father's mercy
forever and ever
Note: The photo that accompanies this work was taken on October 15th when God sent the Phoenix, which is the symbol of New Birth. I have to say that I didn’t not choose this photo because of the Phoenix. David led me to this particular batch today. Fitting! In this particular image is the angel. This is just one of many amazing things God has sent to us!
(January 16, 2020)―I blushed and felt shy after writing what I heard today. I knew who was talking to me. Then I heard God ask after I wrote it, ‘You adore My Son?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ He replied: ‘As it should be.’
This is the second writing I’ve done for Jesus. The first titled ‘The Adjunct’ was written January 5th. This is going to be a very interesting year. I don’t know if anyone else has recorded words of Jesus other than those in the Bible. This is extraordinary and I so want to share with everyone. He isn’t much of a poet, today…He was better at breaking the lines.
‘He† Breathes’ was the name given to me. I knew after I read the Scripture, that I’ve included with this writing I was led to this morning, that I would be in Jesus’ presence again. The breaks in the work is His pauses. Maybe He’s trying to keep up with David and I. His eloquence doesn’t need any rhyme schemes. He’s perfect.
My Brother is always reassuring me that the things I’m going through are the same for all those whom God directly speaks to. I’m still kept separated, but I’m assured it won’t be for long. Until then…patience, trust, love…and that hard love when it’s needed. Writing for Jesus…is nerve racking! My love for Him is beyond measure and I sure don’t want to disappoint. [After I completed this writing, I was assure I have it right…the truth!]
It was John 3:1-21 and on that I was led to, but I decided to include the entire group of Scriptures titled: Jesus’ Early Work in Judea, Samaria, and Galilee.
Andrew and Simon Peter—The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God!’ When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, ‘What do you want?’ They said, ‘Rabbi,’ (which means Teacher), ‘where are you staying?’ ‘Come,’ He replied, ‘and you will see.’ So they went and saw where He was staying, and spent that day with Him. It was about the tenth hour. Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, ‘You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas’ (which, when translated, is Peter).—John 1:35-42
NOTES: This is Peter whom Jesus said, ‘Upon this rock, you will build My church.’
Philip and Nathanael—The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, He said to him, ‘Follow Me.’ Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. Philip found Nathanael and told him, ‘We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote―Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.’ ‘Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?’ Nathanael asked. ‘Come and see,’ said Philip. When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, He said of him, ‘Here is a true Israelite, in whom there is nothing false.’ ‘How do You know me?’ Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, ‘I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.’ Then Nathanael declared, ‘Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel.’ Jesus said, ‘You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You shall see greater things than that.’ He then added, ‘I tell you the truth, you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.’—John 1:43-51
NOTES: …‘Here is a true Israelite, in whom there is nothing false.’…He is saying who He is here. He knows already what lies in people’s hearts. Then here…‘I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.’…He can see everything. All through these testimonies, it is what He says and especially, what He does, that He is telling every one of us who He is and why He came. It’s not a guess!
Jesus Turns Water into Wine—On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and His disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to Him, ‘They have no more wine.’ ‘Dear woman, why do you involve Me?’ Jesus replied. ‘My time has not yet come.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever He tells you.’ Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water’; so they filled them to the brim. Then He told them, ‘Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.’ They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, ‘Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.’ This, the first of His miraculous signs, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee. He thus revealed His glory, and His disciples put their faith in Him. After this He went down to Capernaum with His mother and brothers and His disciples. There they stayed for a few days.—John 2:1-12 (Cana)
NOTES: I point out the numbers here because most of the large numbers are not spelled out. Here they are and this line…There they stayed for a few days…exact days are given then they are not. Did you ever wonder why?
I bolded the word performed because I thought it interesting that this word choice would be used. I keep getting…all is not what it seems…and death has been explained to me as in a child’s death when murdered. I always wondered about this. As in the deaths of all those I saw in the Visions. It was explained to me that the souls are taken up before and they feel nothing. What we see is for our benefit to move through the process. As for the person who actually left the body, they didn’t feel anything. I wondered this too after my son’s accident where a woman lost control of her vehicle and plowed into the back of their travel camper, while they were waiting for someone to go help them. The car went completely under the camper, then fire consumed everything. Her death was already determined. She didn’t feel anything. As when the prophet whose wife died because God said He was going to take her, but the prophet couldn’t mourn. It was because he understood what I just told you.
*Merchants Driven From Temple—When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts He found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So He made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; He scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves He said, ‘Get these out of here! How dare you turn My Father’s house into a market!” His disciples remembered that it is written: ‘Zeal for your house will consume Me.’ Then the Jews demanded of Him, ‘What miraculous sign can You show us to prove Your authority to do all this?’ Jesus answered them, ‘Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.’ The Jews replied, ‘It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and You are going to raise it in three days?’ But the temple He had spoken of was His body. After He was raised from the dead, His disciples recalled what He had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken. Now while He was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many people saw the miraculous signs He was doing and believed in His name. But Jesus would not entrust Himself to them, for He knew all men. He did not need man’s testimony about man, for He knew what was in a man.—John 2:13-25 (Jerusalem, First Passover April, 27 A.D.)
NOTES: Greed. I have used this passage a number of times. It shows that Jesus had a temper as well and that He was serious about the message He had to deliver.
Then the Jews demanded of Him, ‘What miraculous sign can You show us to prove Your authority to do all this?’ Jesus answered them, ‘Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.’…I wrote yesterday in ‘How’s the Wine’ about what the true church of God is. Every time I have doubts about something I write, it’s pointed out either the next day or that week of the writing. It’s a bow-the-head moment every time. God tells us what His church is all over the Bible…then He sends us His Son to tell us! The church is the human body! The sanctuary is the heart!
*Jesus Teaches Nicodemus—Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, ‘Rabbi, we know You are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs You are doing if God were not with Him.’ In reply Jesus declared, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.’ ‘How can a man be born when he is old?’ Nicodemus asked. ‘Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. ‘How can this be?’ Nicodemus asked. ‘You are Israel’s teacher,’ said Jesus, ‘and do you not understand these things? I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? No one has ever gone into heaven except the One who came from heaven—the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.—John 3:1-21
NOTES: Saved. You aren’t reborn by just getting some water poured over your head. Sorry. Nothing good is that easy. Water from some fountain that some pastor deemed holy will not bring you to the rebirth of you. It’s a journey. Meditation is the fastest route. Opening up yourself to the Holy Spirit. This is what God means by ‘rest in Me‘. I was actually called a witch for saying this! That is what the prince of the earth wants. There’s a war going on. Didn’t you get the memo? Jesus wants to put ALL sin under His feet! The evil of the world doesn’t want this. You do have to understand why! ‘Everyone is invited but not everyone gets in’…it’s not rocket science. God’s careful who comes into His house! And that requires some cleansing on your part. And being sprinkled with water in today’s world won’t cut it. You have to do the spiritual training!
Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God…You must understand this statement. If you fear being exposed, having what you’ve been through known by others or having what you have done…the truth…known by others than you are not born again, you are not saved.
*Jesus and John Baptize—After this, Jesus and His disciples went out into the Judean countryside, where He spent some time with them, and baptized. Now John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because there was plenty of water, and people were constantly coming to be baptized. (This was before John was put in prison.)—John 3:22-24
NOTES: …because there was plenty of water…This is interesting isn’t it. Why would this line be included? When you are baptized, you don’t drink the water. It’s not like their bodies would suck up all the water. Interesting. I’ll tell you this…water is extremely important to heaven! And not for drinking because in heaven you don’t have needs like drinking or thirst!
John Testifies About Jesus—An argument developed between some of John’s disciples and a certain Jew over the matter of ceremonial washing. They came to John and said to him, ‘Rabbi, that Man who was with you on the other side of the Jordan—the One you testified about—well, He is baptizing, and everyone is going to Him.’ To this John replied, ‘A man can receive only what is given him from heaven. You yourselves can testify that I said, ‘I am not the Christ but am sent ahead of Him. The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for Him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. The joy is mine, and it is now complete. He must become greater; I must become less. The One who comes from above is above all; the one who is from earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The One who comes from heaven is above all. He testifies to what He has seen and heard, but no one accepts His testimony. The man who has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. For the One whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in His hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.’—John 3:25-36-17
NOTES: Messenger. I counted the word one eight times in this one, single passage! There’s a reason for that.
… a certain Jew…Why didn’t this particular person get named? Interesting isn’t it!
The bride belongs to the bridegroom…This is talked about throughout the Bible. I was led to do research on the Sign of Jonah (this has a lot to do with the promise God has made to me) and the bride and bridegroom are one of the signs. Oh, the Sign of Jonah, main one is the descending dove…it is the sign of Jesus the Christ.
The One who comes from above is above all…Twice!
He testifies to what He has seen and heard, but no one accepts His testimony. The man who has accepted it has certified that God is truthful…Nothing much has changed. God sent all of this stuff to me to present to you and you don’t accept it. He said you will after the warnings takes place. I wonder if even after something as significant as reversing the earth’s plates would convince such an ego-driven society?
Jesus Leaves for Galilee—The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but His disciples. When the Lord learned of this, He left Judea and went back once more to Galilee.—John 4:1-3 (Judea)
Woman at the Well—Now He had to go through Samaria. So He came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as He was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, ‘Will you give Me a drink?’ (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to Him, ‘You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can You ask me for a drink?’ (For Jews do no associate with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, ‘If you knew the gift of God and who it was that asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him and He would have given you living water.’ ‘Sir,’ the woman said, ‘You have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can You get this living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?’ Jesus answered, ‘Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’
The woman said to Him, ‘Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.’ He told her, ‘Go, call your husband and come back.’ ‘I have no husband,’ she replied. Jesus said to her, ‘You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.’ ‘Sir,’ the woman said, ‘I can see that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but You Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.’ Jesus declared, ‘Believe Me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.‘ The woman said, ‘I know that Messiah’ (called Christ) ‘is coming. When He comes, He will explain everything to us.’ Then Jesus declared, ‘I who speak to you am He.’—John 4:4-26 (Sychar)
NOTES: If you knew the gift of God and who it was that asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him and He would have given you living water.’…Later in Scripture He talks about drinking from the cup that He drinks from. This is what He is leading to here. The living water is life…the life of goodness, of love…the life God wants us to live.
but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst…Nothing bothers us. We don’t fear anymore. We trust in God totally that He will provide to us everything that we need. This is very hard to do by the way. Even though you say you do this…you don’t.
the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’…the Gospel…God’s word. Truth. If you live truth…it will lead you to the kingdom!
for salvation is from the Jews…He is talking about Himself. He is the salvation.
You Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.’…Believe Me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem….for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth…These passages are another indication for me that what I wrote in the commentary for ‘How’s the Wine’ was accurate. Even though I’m assured that I have the Spirit of Truth guiding me, I still question. Of course, God knows this…He did give me a journalistic mind. And He settles my heart with truth every time!
The woman said, ‘I know that Messiah’ (called Christ) ‘is coming. When He comes, He will explain everything to us.’ Then Jesus declared, ‘I who speak to you am He’.…Would you have believed Him?
*Spiritual Food—Just then His disciples returned and were surprised to find Him talking with a woman. But no one asked, ‘What do you want?’ or ‘Why are You talking with her?’ Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, ‘Come see a Man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?’ They came out of the town and made their way toward Him. Meanwhile His disciples urged Him, ‘Rabbi, eat something.’ But He said to them, ‘I have food to eat that you know nothing about.’ Then His disciples said to each other, ‘Could some have brought Him food?’ ‘My food,’ said Jesus, ‘is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work. Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now, the reaper draws His wages, even now He harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.’—John 4:27-38 (Dec., A.D. 27)
NOTES: This…what I’m doing right now is spiritual food. What Jesus did for the Samaritan woman, which they didn’t give her a name either, was the spiritual food He was talking about. The seeds I’m to plant…that’s the spiritual food. As we are all part of the vine, we are all responsible for each other, we are all responsible for planting the seeds, feeding each other the spiritual food…the truth. Trust me when I say that you do not want to be responsible for guiding others away from God or Jesus! You don’t want to have to answer to God about you getting in the way of saving souls. You do not want to have to answer to JESUS why you led His flocks away from HIM! You really don’t want to go to that trial!
Many Samaritans Converted—Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the woman’s testimony, ‘He told me everything I ever did.’ So when the Samaritans came to Him, they urged Him to stay with them, and He stayed two days. And because of His words many more became believers. They said to the woman, ‘We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this Man really is the Savior of the world.’—John 4:39-42
NOTES: Jesus did enough to show the world. As it was written, he performed! And He didn’t like that He had to do this. He points that out a lot in the Bible! In order to feel Him yourself without having to see, mediate, trust in the journey. Shut off all noise. No chanting. Just hear! You will eventually hear Him. And you will know because He gives off this amazing love, joy, happiness…feeling!
Jesus Returns to Galilee—After the two days He left for Galilee. (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) When He arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed Him. They had seen all that He had done in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, for they also had been there.—John 4:43-45 (Galilee)
NOTES: Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) …He’s constantly reminding me of this. He’s constantly sending word or speaking to me directly or God says it…that I have a thing to do and what others think isn’t even an issue. And the questions and answers are put into my head: How can anyone from your hometown even question this if they are as loyal to God as they appear on the outside? Karen Elizabeth, do they attend a church building? There you go. They are not being taught the truth. Didn’t we pull you out of that? Didn’t we put the anxiousness in your heart that made you run from that? Now, you know why. They question because they don’t know. They fear heaven even though they want to go to heaven.
Boy in Capernaum Healed—Once more He visited Cana in Galilee, where He had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to Him and begged Him to come and heal his son, who was close to death. ‘Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders,’ Jesus told him, ‘you will never believe.’ The royal official said, ‘Sir, come down before my child dies.’ Jesus replied, ‘You may go. Your son will live.’ The man took Jesus at His word and departed. While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, ‘The fever left him yesterday at the seventh hour.’ Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, ‘Your son will live.’ So he and all his household believed. This was the second miraculous sign that Jesus performed, having come from Judea to Galilee.—John 4:46-54 (Cana)
NOTES: Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders,’ Jesus told him, ‘you will never believe.’ …He said this a bunch of times while He was on earth. I question myself because I constantly need signs. After all, I’m writing for my Father in Heaven and my Brother. This is scary! God can send lightening down anytime. And He can! People don’t realize what God can do! They tell me: You’re human. It is normal to have such doubts, to have such questions. God…GOD…says I’m in truth…to not fear. And I’m getting used to it. When He doesn’t want me to posts something I’m writing on social media, He actually closes out my apps and erases everything I wrote. It’s happened I can’t even tell you how many times. This is the same when I text people. It’s the same when I encounter people. If He doesn’t want them to talk to me, they will not even notice I’m there.
People have lost true faith. I’m saying it general as He wants me to. People get all juicy about God and Jesus on Sundays, holidays…but then that’s it. True faith is resting in them, knowing that LOVE is HOLY…not all this church-building, statue-staring, robe-wearing crap! True faith is being open to the bigger picture…that we are not alone and we are always being watched. Knowing that we have spiritual guides like mine, David, who has been with me all of my life and saved me from accidents so many times and he’s now my belt-way to Jesus. In fact, he brought me Jesus, the ultimate purple flower!
If you aren’t willing to risk everything for Jesus, for God, then your belief is weak. John the Baptist, below, thrown in prison by the evil of the world because of greed, control, hate, lustful desire. The people themselves aren’t really evil…they are just not healed from whatever hurt them when they were children. That is just fact. All pain and evil deeds result from something! All of them. Heal is the call-to-action command! Not by me. By GOD Himself.
John the Baptist Imprisoned—But when John rebuked Herod the tetrarch because of Herodias, his brother’s wife, and all the other evil things he had done, Herod added this to them all: He locked John up in prison.—Luke 3:19,20
