‘Mistakened Weakness’

‘Mistakened Weakness’…To look at the big picture is so very hard. But if you are going to get through the hard, you have to force yourself into seeing this big picture.

Mistakened Weakness

tragedy struck my inner self
no blood or guts
no...it was worse
‒betrayal by those
in trust

I was weak
‒for a moment
I pivoted
stripped all love's endowment

but your strip of me
came way before‒
when I left home
got out
on my own

we always bickered
you and I
you never told me‒
giving me reason to stay
so I left
‒I went away

then…you canceled me out
just like that
I became replaceable
forgettable

it all made me strong
living on my own
crying 'til dawn
a little lost sheep
gone

I grew and soared
‒through all of it
even war

by myself

I returned to you
I busted trains and plans
all for you
to watch you
say 'I do'

you never knew
the hoops I went through
for you

then it wired down
like normal
me and sis doing our thing
‒it was like
when we were kids
hanging and singing
just being us

but…then
a third wheel returned
then another and another

I never knew
what changed the view
who can throw such a curve
between sisters
‒who has such nerve

I never asked
I never will

I grew weak
a spell or two
‒but just a few

through it all
I stood alone
all own my own

by myself
in stealth

with no one to comfort me
but the one who created me

I learned through misery
love left my family
‒all that I felt inside
was all just for my eye
making me see
how much
none of them knew me

not at all

strength built
through what others' misery
tried to kill

I forgive you
I made it through
all that happened to me
because I let you
get to me

thank you
for hating me
for betraying me

for if you hadn't
me and Jesus†
wouldn't have met
so intimately

Notes: The photograph David chose is from October 7, 2022: Faces. Interesting that David picked this particular day to go with this writing. God’s eyes are every where and this is what this day shows. No matter what you try to hide, it won’t work. At all. So why hide? Why think you can outsmart God? That’s just dumb!

(March 29, 2022)―Today, I was directed to write from the heart. Lately, my little sister has been on my mind. I called her for the holidays. She didn’t answer. So, I left her a message. She never called back.

Again, after the work, I was led to Acts 5:17-6:1-7. After writing ‘To Wait Amongst Men’, I was led to these same pages.

It’s a strange thing when you get older and realize all the things that happened to you, happened for a reason. It is really sad to see people who were taught as you were, who were raised as you were, don’t grow as you did.

The Scripture shows how jealousy works in us and how faith prevails. There is no stopping God’s plans. No matter how smart you are. No matter how much money you have. No matter who you marry or who your friends are. God prevails.

‘Times of Forgiveness’ (Jesus)

‘Times of Forgiveness’ (Jesus)…I had to define Cypress (Cyprus) in 2019 for spiritual work that I’m doing. It is NOT an accident that this combination is found where it was found.

Times of Forgiveness (Jesus)

reach out to them
forgive them
long goes...those who live
even those whom have died
reach a hand out
in glory...to them...shout
the Spirit†
is what it's about

I† give you permission
all the glorification
forgive...bless them
in love
through the holiness
of Me†

who am I†?
I† am He†
the first
His† Son†...Jesus†
Emmanuel†

with the Spirit† I† give you
bless them
oh singled out blessed one
bless them
give them the strength
to forgive

seek Me†
the holiness of the One†

don't falter
in strength...love
through redemption
you will be saved

it is all going to be
the atrocities must be
for redemption

oh holy, holy is the Lord†
the God† of all mankind
seek refuge
in Me†
dawn the light of grace
shelter within the coming storm
for I† am He†
the shelter of all
the refuge of the broken
seek Me†
and I† will give you strength
come to Me†
and I† will hold you
through the coming calamity

do not falter
all is not what it seems
be in grace
honor His† words
He† will forgive
come to Me†
so you'll be forgiven

the choice is yours
bow down before Me†
outside of your crossed buildings
outside within Him†
for He† is 'free'
for He† is all things

awaken oh wonderful you
the temple of He†
the makeshift wonder of Him†
His† love is boundless
His† fatherly ways are vast
‒without understanding
love the One† whom He† sent
do not appease Him†
love
love Him† for His† discipline
for His† correction is just
He† is firm
He† is gentle
He† is vengeful and jealous
awaken to your sins

to be washed clean

I† am He†
the One† who saves

it is coming
all that has been written
for the word is true
for the prophets speak truth
for the prophets see truth
their words must be
for truth to be known

a war is waged
I† threw the stone
‒a forced redemption
it is
for the Lord† Almighty says so
His† will will be done
amen

Notes: The photograph is from October 7, 2019: Faces. Screen shot of what David pointed out is below.

(January 9, 2022)―This afternoon I chatted with a friend about my writings and what God is saying to us, about what a past prophet had warned and how it is matching some of what I am writing. I didn’t know this and I cried. Selfishly. I cried because why tell me what’s already been given. It is a waste of time. God says no.

Then I was led to a writing, ‘Times of Forgiveness’, Jesus.

It gets even more remarkable. I had sat my phone down near me because I have several alarms on my phone set to certain feeding times. Yes, I have to remind myself to eat. I have a 4:00 p.m. snack time, and it was close to that, so I didn’t want to have to get up. I didn’t close out the chat because my phone makes a beep sound when I get a chat and it is disrupting.

‘Salt’

He will not let you continue to parade your bull on His sons and daughters. He will take revenge. Why? Because He’s a very jealous God.

Salt
 
it's all up-wind, ya know
all these words
you know you heard
but you're still‒
shuffling through dirt
not knowing‒
which way to flirt
just on anyone's coattail‒
you skirt
‒just getting by
telling lies
offering made-up alibis
hoping it'll all fly
‒so with them
you can lie
 
I just sit here
throw up a yawn
maybe a fart or burp
‒up that ally
I can't even surf
on too many shoulders‒
it jerks
‒leaving me ask myself:
 
'what exactly am I worth?'
 
yhea, I just pass on
a little sigh
‒with telling the truth
I'm not at all shy
 
through you‒
I went pass the sky
up into the universe
to God† the most high
He† made me see‒
of you…the seriousness
of why
 
so go on now
this second half of life‒
to the Lord† I bow
no longer do I need‒
little boys to give me a wow
 
I'm duty-bound
to the place that taught me
what it means
to be found
‒without having to first
drown

Note: This set of frames was taken on November 9, 2019: Certainty of Visions. There are so many things right before our eyes that we refuse to see. In this particular frame, God is revealing something massive! In the ray, which David has pointed out over and over, God uses the the energy to draw, paint. And I was overwhelmed this day by what David was showing me. Are you going to deny that the art ISN’T there? Why do you keep lying to yourself? God is the ultimate creator. This isn’t make-believe. Of all the things He reveals in the pictures, you deny them. So, He pointed out this particular day these paintings to you. And He ask, ‘Are you still blind?’

This is the original frame. What is happening is behind me.
David said blow up the ray, and this was what was inside of it…see the energy?
This is what, through the energy of the ray, was being painted. It changes by second, even less than a second. If you can’t see the picture, you are blind and you need to focus on why your eyes are blind because there is so much to see when your eyes are opened!

(October 3)―My registration on my car expired and I can’t renew it until I get a smog test done, so I went today to get one. Funny thing. I failed, or rather, it is incomplete! Strange how that sounds. My battery finally gave out. I got a new one this pass week. Well, these new model cars, mine’s a 2012, need to recompute! Isn’t that something! I have to go drive my car around about 40 miles for it to complete its recompute! Then I can get my smog ‘pass‘ so I can renew my registration.

Salt‘ was written before this happened. God thought I needed to learn a little more. Then He reopened me to the following Scriptures. Matthew 18:15-17 to be particular about it! I often scold myself for calling people out on their BS. I don’t do that to be mean. Way, waaaayyyy…far from that! I do it for them to repent, to make them see their errors and fix them. I forgive them. I always do. The turn side: They don’t forgive me and they further bury themselves in their debts to the Lord. And the Lord says to me: They need to recompute…have a rebirth in Me as you have. Give them time and you will see!

‘Equal Parts’

God is waiting on you and you are taking too long to respond. He’s given you adequate proof that what is sent through me is from Him. Time is ticking. The button has been pushed. It’s up to you to decipher what He has sent thus far. He already knows that your faith is weak. He already knows how many people will die. Will you be one of them? You have a chance to change that number…more or less?

NOTE: Every word here is God’s message, not mine. I was to include how I feel and background information. Every link added here was by request from David to ensure that you KNOW that this is important. I’m also repeating myself again…this is very important. What I REPEAT, HE WANTS you to really know!

Equal Parts
 
you are not better than me
I am not better than you
together
we are sinners
set in small parts
equal before the Lord†
 
we are given chances‒
jump
over...under
fences
then judged by agendas
not circumstances
 
will we abandon others' needs
or give until we bleed
will we warn for safety‒
protecting others
‒even for precaution's sake
or will we forsake
know but not tell
for fear of society's yell
‒that would sink us to hell
 
our judgment comes on merits
not what we say
‒but what we do
 
how will we respond‒
will we see and hear
in love
or will we judge‒
through hatred, lies and fear
 
are we willing to risk
‒go against society's twist
show our faith in Jesus†
even as they attack us‒
condemn, crucify us
 
can we live as we speak
‒putting God† and Jesus†
on social media walls‒
can we truly live the call
‒not be afraid to fall
 
you are not better than me
I am not better than you
together
we are sinners
set in small parts
equal before the Lord†
 
living our lives in parts
makes it all‒
not hard
for we are part
of the Lord†‒
actions of the heart
‒instead of through
hate, lies and fear‒
we live in sincere
‒without anyone
to sheer

‘Share Grace—Repent’

To repent and forgive ourselves and others is really hard, but a must and it takes courage and a warrior heart. Do you have it?

 Share Grace—Repent
 
it's all in how
you run your race
leaving behind
God's† grace
for the better
of mankind‒
changing their
backward's trace
relocating
their hidden face
to the onward‒
Jesus†-inspiring base
 
it's how you let
the pace
‒what you put
on your plate
then‒
what others add‒
for taste
‒it's up to you
in good faith
choosing what
to debate
recognize
evil's bait
what's merely
for the vase
what's meant
as a trait
what's inward‒
to lace
‒adding up
to hate
 
be careful not
to move‒
with such haste
it could all
add up
to common waste
 
if you veered
from straight
let evil drown
you in mace‒
it's not too late
‒change that fate
 
Jesus† is ready‒
to hear your case
‒you are never
a mistake
you just carried‒
on your shoulders
on your back‒
a bit of
heavy weight
 
stop putting off‒
stop the wait
‒evil likes to place
on you‒
an unsteady rate
its lying
trying to debase
‒deep inside
you are
a Jesus† mate
 
it doesn't matter‒
what...at all
you ate
‒dig in...regain
your faith
 
‒you'll find deep
in your heart and mind‒
combined
a bright, shiny ace
as you lose
pride and ego‒
move into
a repenting state
‒willing in semi-sedate
of your way
in meditate
 
opening doors
for Jesus'† way
‒forgiveness of self
for your grand entrance‒
in God's† heavenly gate!

‘Love in Action’

Actions, in spite of resentment, still say LOVE

 Love in Action
 
no matter the resentment
it was given then taken
actions of love
still...not just a must
but a do
 
it's all giving
without judgment
helping without faking
actions in love
doing
without needing a clue
 
it's helping another
without commitment
being truthful
without manipulation
actions in love
doing
for words are not enough
 
it's getting over
the resentment
‒those taking without
returning the give
actions in love
still...a beautiful mark
on the heart
in the making

‘What Comes Out’

Anger: How changing this one emotion can change your entire life!

 What Comes Out
 
she weighted
the things she's said
‒those retaliating words
she weighted
the things she's done
thinking it all hard love
but it was anger
‒acting out
over another's danger
 
what makes you do
these things?
 
she pondered the question
the only answer: retaliation
she bowed her head
in confession
responding to those living
in secret
putting her in the dark...deeper
 
she weighted
her lost of control
‒all man things took their toll
grabbing at her in hold
her...letting it all
use her in bold
 
anger's put her in the red
shaped thoughts in head
then actions without thought
knowing the wrong
in every heart beat
then came further heat
 
she weighted
all these things
knowing too late always rings
seeking truth
sets off anger in sing
it's her life
not just some fling
 
she sighed just a bit
thinking these things
anger's become a distraction
at times
giving satisfaction
‒the evil whore's demolition
 
she bowed her head
in greater confession
this her greatest sin
one...with‒
she no longer
wants to blend
control‒
a fight she's determined
to win
‒using gratitude
from God's† den‒
the only way to contend
‒be put in the light
from way deep within

‘Hidden Treasure’

Discovering the hidden treasure in yourself!

 Hidden Treasure
 
I found it
in the mince of broken
it was afraid and hidden
an abundantly harvested token
‒over used and forsaken
 
I took it in
without fear's notion
‒not even feeling a demotion
I bathed
in its scented potion
rolled around
in its storied creation
 
I overlooked‒
its wicked formation
for I saw‒
a different translation
‒one that needed
a believer's gratification
one with a heart-filled formulation
 
I listened
to its every beckon
sometimes, in stages of drunken
 
all around...deemed it poison
something to be shackled‒
in a far-away prison
 
I threw out‒
traditionalized opinions
nothing stuck‒
rotten or forbidden
its scent just heightened
‒nothing could be wrong
or mistaken
 
I moved like lightening
intentional burns‒
gone...forgotten
‒days passing slow, steadfast‒
good ridden!
I drove it‒
to an endless vacation
‒whatever conviction
out...came my eviction
 
I smiled as I saw its rising
all my stops...fully opened
pulling it out of hopeless‒
with my inner-most motivation
‒a darkened star had risen!
 
I fought everything
in grand petition
every inside concentration‒
I put aside
rose to the occasion
‒with the fierceness of driven
this hidden treasure
overcoming every treason
to become the lamination
of a new generation!
 
stop!....
 
reveal
came its different ideas written
all avenues taken‒
off records...stricken
–beating all those defeating‒
overcoming...petitions
a losing validation!
 
I lost to its mention
‒there...in its private station
came to life‒
its own treasure hidden
in all its careful motions‒
belts and strings
forcefully tightened
 
I craved to be enlightened
–nothing valued...given
anything to elevate my vision
halted in moments of frighten
 
I fought constant bent roads‒
tried to straighten
tried to remember each lesson
through all that glistened‒
it had its own secrets woven
‒knowledge in listen
mixing up pointless decisions
taking all the forgivens
icing them‒
in the forever of frozen
 
yes, I found it
in the mince of broken
it was afraid and hidden
an abundantly harvested token
‒over used and forsaken
 
but all the good of will‒
off...steadily shakened
breathing‒
living a horrid token
in anger's hidden conviction
‒all that's been stolen‒
on others
its constant reliving
 
it found its way‒
in rebuilding
using knowledge given
slashing‒
all help's salutations
keeping to itself‒
a stolen formulation
‒to avoid sharing‒
treasures hidden
as I sit
in lost wanderings–
moments
I took it
out of forsaken

Commentaries: Matthew 13:44-46

[k. e. leger’s Note: This article and all that goes with it from biblehub.com is not originally written in the English language. It was translated and I will correct spelling and punctuation as in keeping with the meaning of their content. In some places, I had to let it be. I hope that you enjoy this piece anyway. This goes with my article title ‘Discovering the Hidden Treasure in Yourself’.]

Ellicott’s Commentary [Introduction]

The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field.—Probably no parable in the whole series came more home to the imagination of the disciples than this. Every village had its stories of men who had become suddenly rich by finding some hidden hoard that had been hastily concealed in time of war or tumult.

Then, as now, there were men who lived in the expectation of finding such treasures, and every traveler who was seen searching in the ruins of an ancient town was supposed to be hunting after them. As far back as the days of Solomon, such a search had become a parable for the eager pursuit of wisdom (Proverbs 2:4).

The Case of the Buried Treasure

by Ray Stedman, Authentic Christianity

[k. e. leger Note: This article was written June 27, 1971. Please take note how this article, written 48 years ago, still holds true today. This really helps us to understand the struggle with Israel, and why the governments are acting the way they are. This goes with my article titled ‘Discovering the Hidden Treasure in Yourself.’]

In the great series of parables in Matthew 13 our Lord gave us, as He said, ‘The secrets of the kingdom of heaven.’ The kingdom of heaven is God’s work among men, God’s rule and authority in the midst of human affairs. In this series, Jesus is revealing the work of the kingdom as it is going on throughout the centuries of this present age since His first coming and before His return. We come to the fifth parable this morning, the parable of the buried treasure.

I don’t know what that may evoke in your mind. It always reminds me immediately of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, of Long John Silver, and doubloons and pieces-of-eight, peg-leg pirates, and all the exciting things usually associated with the idea of buried treasure. It is intriguing to realize that Scripture deals with this subject as well. It recognizes the allure and the mystery, which always gathers around the notion of hidden treasure. God has His buried treasures and He is speaking of them in this parable.
