Stranger Danger

Hitching A Ride

As the New Year looms on the horizon, my inbox overflows, with multi-media Prophetic pronouncements for 2013. There are a lot of cotton candy scenarios and hefty sprinklings of Fairy dust being digitized lately, masquerading as ‘prophetic’ utterances. By no means is your humble servant, the Light keeper, becoming jaded or cynical; considering we survived the Eighties- ‘If it didn’t happen then’…you see my point.

However, something (The Holy Spirit) keeps nibbling around the edges of our spirit; floating back like the refrain of an old beloved hymn; it’s that comment that our Lord Jesus made during a very well documented teaching session recorded (below):

27 My sheep know my voice, and I know them. They follow me, 28 and I give them eternal life, so that they will never be lost. No one can snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father gave them to me, and he is greater than all others. [a] No one can snatch them from his hands, 30 and I am one with the Father.      John 10:27-30 C.E.V.

Before anyone wants to get ‘all mystic,’ or presupposes that we are; consider this: Go to any playground in the world and watch dozens of children at play. Also watch carefully to see what happens when a parent of one those children calls their child. Invariably, the other children hear ‘a voice,’ but they just keep right on playing, but the child whose parent calls to them immediately recognizes the parents voice above all the other sounds in the area. The child responds.

Consider this also, that in the Prophesies of 2013 floated out thus far; mainly there is nothing (and we mean absolutely nothing) given for us sheep to chew on, reflect on, strive toward, believe for, or develop upon. All that is required is for us to: Open our hand (or mouth) and ‘get.’ Get blessed, get graced, get stuff, and get more stuff!

Stop us if we’re wrong (and I’m sure you will), but throughout the pages of what our Heavenly Father wrote down for us [the Holy Bible]; we participate in this Love relationship; even the free gift of salvation requires confession and belief. [Rom. 10:9] Additionally, let’s review Matthew 7 for example, where our Lord Jesus starts off telling us what our part of Kingdom relationship looks like:

  • “Do not”… Verses 1 – 6
  • “Ask”…. Verses 7-10

    Sermon on the Mount

    Sermon on the Mount

  • “Give”… Verses 11-12
  • “Enter”… Verses 13-14

No lights, no cameras, but plenty of Action! It’s up to us to ‘Do’ something.

So, from one sheep to another who shares the same Heavenly Father, don’t go trotting off behind some stranger dangling a prophecy that just ‘sounds’ a lot like our Heavenly Dad, but it really isn’t Him.

What it comes down to:

If…You know Him, you know His word, so you know His voice, then you know better!

2013 will be Perfect?

2013 will be Perfect?

Don’t get in the car with a strangers promising you something for nothing.

Our Dad never does that!

And as always,

Be Blessed
