Dear Saints and Visitors,
I wanted to share a vision with you that I had early 28th Aug. 2011 on Sunday morning.
I and my mommy (Gina B.) were reflecting on the importance of observing Jesus Christ as the pattern of our faith.
My mommy (Gina B.) was stewarding the grace of God to me (reminding me to reflect upon that grace and also that which my PIC Adina stewards to me), strengthening me with the knowledge of Christ through the stewardship of His grace as concerning the spiritual cycles of growth through 'Revelation, Resistence, and Reward' this is when I saw this vision. It was very clear and edifying to me. I shared it with my mommy while the Lord was ministering it to me and she quickly typed it up as I shared it with her.
I had a vision of my mommy and I, and the doctrine of Christ. So here it is saints and visitors:
My mother was was sitting at a desk and she was typing the knowledge of Christ on the computer. My mom had typed alot!
I was standing behind my mother and I placed and rested both my hands on both of her shoulders.
We were talking about the doctrine of Christ the element of "TRUTH."
It was very important what my mom was typing because there were many many words that were highlighted. It seemed like millions.
I noticed there was no time on my mommy's computer.
Then she scrolled down really fast on the document she just typed.
Then I lowered my head and peered over her right shoulder looking at the computer screen.
I then lifted my left hand up and pointed to the screen with my left index finger. But I still had my right hand on my mommy's right shoulder.
I noticed the highlighted words Truth and wisdom. These are the words God selected and work with His pattern of truth. The words God selected preach Jesus christ and are all connected to His system of salvation and work to engage me (us, man) in a reciprocal relationship with Him.
I noticed that my mom had all the doctrine of Christ very well organized, neat and orderly in files, folders, and binders on/around her computer desk. The binders were tabbed to define each doctrine and element of the Gospel.
My reflection of my mommy is that mommies are the nurturing factor in a childs life. Through the Symbolism of my mommy God is showing me that He is actively nurturing my growth in Christ.
I reflected that as I placed my hands and rested them on my mommy's shoulders I reflect that His word says that the government of God is upon the shoulders of Jesus Christ and by that He oversees my growth in Christ through His stewardship and government. Also that my labor of faith is my rest in Christ for I am am touching Christ and the things from above.
I reflected upon what the Lord was pointing out as He used me to show myself what He is pointing out...Truth and wisdom. The Lord is showing me the activity of faith because I am active in my priesthood the Lord is writing His Law of grace and truth within my soul. AWESOME!
My reflection on this is the Lord is addressing the caverns of my soul as seen in the symbolism of the computer and the highlighted words Truth and wisdom. Truth is wisdom and truth sets in order by the wisdom of God. As I labor with the tools of Christ's covenant His truth sets in order the caverns of my soul to reflect Christ in truth and by His wisdom. Also I see again in the symbolism of the doctrine in files, folders, and binders that are marked by tabs are all set in order on the desk. This again speaks to me about how the doctrine of Christ sets in order the caverns of the soul to reflect Christ. We are bound to Christ at the altar of our priesthood.
Through the symbolism of my mommy typing the doctrine of Christ on the computer I thought about how God is actively writing His doctrine of Christ and life within the caverns of my soul. I see this as an encouragement to my faith for through this vision God is edifying me so that I will continue to build with Him in the good habits of faith
I also reflected on the symbolism of no time clock on the computer. This dimension is marked by time. The things of the soil, the physical things, the carnal things,the flesh, are all marked by time. The unfolding of God's Plan and righteous judgment is complete as concerning His law being written in my soul.
I think because the time of the rapture is so close and I am active in the priesthood excercising my will to choose the righteousness of Christ that God is doing a quick work within me.
I learned this is a manifestation of God's grace to me. Jesus manifested and revealed Himself to me through this vision and ministered grace for my growth so I may continue to know Him, commune with Him, that He may form His virtues within my soul. During this vision I experienced the humbling of my will to Christ as His Spirit brought me peace, comfort, edification, and exhortation to my soul.
I also learned that Jesus is the yoke that we, as believers carry, and we do this through our priesthood spiritual sacrifies of prophecy, through God writing His Law of Grace and Truth upon the heart, through reflecting, rehearsing, and reciprocating the knowledge of Christ. This is our reality which I experienced tonight.
Reflection has to do with our daily choices to receive the "things" that are from above. We reflect on the testimony of God's direct involvement in our faith as in the manifold graces of God, upon the righteous judgments of God, and upon how we are gaining God's perspective.
Rehearsing has to do with a form of practice, which is in preparation for function. As priests of God we rehearse His Holy knowledge daily for our function at the altar of Christ. I understand that rehearsing also speaks of strengthening one another with this knowledge of Christ through our stewardship of His grace. This is what the government of God does for the Body of Christ and each Saint one to another to build us up in the faith of Jesus Christ.
Reciprocation has to do with the expression of His virtues and because He is initiating contact with us through His virtues, I and all saints are able to reciprocate in kind. Through the reciprocation of our faith, which reflects the same grace and truth we have received of Him, we are loving God as He loved us
"Children of faith choose to reflect on the Plan of God and remain within the restrictions of the Second Covenant wherein we are nurtured by the grace of God and our souls increase by His knowledge."
Love In Christ,
