Another Heart

For a few weeks now I have been praying to God asking Him if He could please give me a heart that obeys Him, His word, His Spirit, His ways… I thought and spoke to God about now He gave King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon a heart of an animal for a period of time. And, I thought about how He hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and, recently, after being told to read 1 Samuel 10…I have also been thinking about the new heart He gave to Saul who would be a king of Israel.

In the case of Nebuchadnezzar, he was a wicked king who the Lord used to enslave the Israelites after years of warning them to turn their hearts back to Him. In the account of King Nebuchadnezzar, as revealed in the scriptures of the book of Daniel, is this knowledge about one of the king’s dream

"...Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him..." Daniel 4:16.

Reading on you will come to the knowledge that this was a dream given by God to Nebuchadnezzar and the interpretation of it was given to Daniel.

The meaning was that Nebuchadnezzar was going to be given a heart like a wild animal who lives in the bush and eats and behaves wildly as is the nature of an animal’s heart is.

"...That they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling will be with the beasts of the field, and they will make you to eat grass as oxen, and they will wet you with the dew of heaven, and seven times will pass over you, till you know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will..."

It would be seven years that the King would live like an animal. An animal. Because God would make one in him. God.

 "...The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws..."

Yet God in His great mercies…God, would spare Nebuchadnezzar his life as a man and as a king.

"...And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up my eyes unto heaven, and my understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured Him that lives for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation:

And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He does according to His will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay His hand, or say to Him, What do you?

At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, my honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.

Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and Hid ways judgment: and those that walk in pride He is able to abase."

In no way do I desire to come against Almighty God, Jesus Christ. I say that because I realize the thee persons mentioned above turned from God. We do not have to follow suit. We, like Daniel and the three Hebrew boys, and the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before us, can walk in the ways and counsel of our God ALL the days appointed unto us, by Him, through Him and for Him. We can and will in His strength and power and behaviour by the Holy Spirit and true word of the Living God.

Yes, I want and need a heart that can serve God trough the Holy Ghost as Jesus so willingly did when He was living here in flesh. Of everything, every single thing Jesus was and is, is obedient to our Heavenly Father. Obedient to serve, obedient to love, obedient to speak the truth, obedient to teach, obedient to give up His life in terrible suffering yet counted it as joy.

Not long ago the Holy Spirit spoke this to me,

“Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.” ISAIAH 66:1-2

What can I give to God the creator? What does He desire? What does He want…like actually want from me? Even me?

My heart.

Your heart is the womb of conception.

Another heart to conceive the things and ways and nature of Jesus here on earth in my daily life.

In Jesus I do ask even for a sign as evidence O Lord my God.
Amen.

What about yours?

Truth

Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men;

If any man

Stay close to someone and you will learn their ways. You will see and hear their ways. You will come to the knowledge of who they truly are. Their behaviours will be understood by you should you follow them around and around and around. Their secrets, revealed to you. Their heart, made known to you. Their ways, consider by you. Should you hang around someone long enough you will know what others do not know. You will see what others cannot see. You will hear what others have not heard.

Should you follow someone you will be where they are. You will take note and stalk of their teachings, their sayings, their language, their style. Their influence you will adapt. Their life will greatly effect you.

Jesus Christ says if any man should serve Him, the same is to follow Him so that He and they are always together. And, that where Jesus goes He will always have one to do His works in a given moment. Amen. He also revels that the one who would serve Him, the Father would honour. Glory.

This is certain. The Father will honour them who serve Christ by following Christ.


"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Expect a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abide alone: but if it die, it bring forth much fruit. He that love his life shall lose it; and he that hate his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour."

JOHN 12:24-26

Faithful Father, Strengthen My Inner Man

Peace and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be to you and your house

Precious saints of God Almighty, called to God by the Spirit of Christ, be not weary but hold fast to that which is true. Remember the new water in which you came. The new life in which by faith in Jesus our Lord, you have been born again. Remember the promises of our King, remember His ways and walk by them. Do not grow weary, but by faith, work the works of Christ remembering the times. We are not alone. I pray the strength of the Spirit of truth be multiplied to you. I pray we are growing in all the fullness of our God, Jehovah and, that we are wise to do what is pleasing and right in the sight of God. Be then good to each other, speaking what is true by the grace that has been given of you in a measure as a gift from the Father of our Lord.

Amen.

Pray before the Lord our God, remembering all saints everywhere. May there be unity in Christ’s One body, and might we see the glory of God here in the land of the living. Be full of hope that others might turn and return to the Lord their Maker. I have seen and heard of the spread of the goodness. Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

 


For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:14-19

Forever He will Be

The Chief Corner Stone

Glory in the Lord your God maker of all things! Blessed is he whose God is the Lord. For forever Jesus Christ himself is the chief corner stone. The stone, the Rock, the head, holding together the building fitly framed together, as we grow unto a holy temple in the Lord our God.

Make your praise loud! Boast mightily in the Lord God of all creation. Let His praises be made known in the congregation. Let His people rejoice in the Lord their God, who at countless times have shown forth His great mercies and faithfulness unto the just and unto the unjust.

Marvelous are your ways my God o’ King of kings. Great is your faithfulness. And rich are you my Lord, rich are you in mercy. Be thou our God and we your people. Let us call upon your name in truth. Clothe us in your garments of praise and thanksgiving. Teach us your ways my Lord that we might walk in the Light of truth and holiness and your peace. Make us to know and understand the hope of your calling that our hearts might not turn from you. Blessed O’ Lord my God, blessed are they who trust in your goodness, who depend upon your help. They shall not be made ashamed. I, oh God of my life, I would have lost heart unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of you, here in the land of the living. Set forth your ways before your people. Let us be thou released from all that burden us and stand against us that we would not gather to worship you in the spirit and in the truth according to thy word Most High. Set us free from every stronghold over and in us. Your people must be made to worship you. For what other name can man be saved? and who other is the maker of man? and to whom is the might of our praises due? You, my Father in heaven, you alone are God and there is not one other. No, not one.

Bless us my God, and let not the building of your holy temple be stopped, but give unto us all the power and wisdom and strength and resources and courage to finish the task which you lay upon the hearts of your people. And let the name of your Son, Jesus the Christ, be exalted in the nations, in our homes, in the church, and in the mouths of them whose God is the Lord. May the hearts of our children not turn from you, but may they come unto the full understanding of your salvation and render themselves unto your mighty and gracious hand, O’ Lord our Father.

Amen. Glory.


For through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God. And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone, in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord. In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

EPHESIANS 2:18-22
