The Father Moment
It is difficult to discuss things that are experiential
with people who haven't had the experience. The possibility of truth can rest
only in the credibility of the person telling the tale. I've watched so called
ministers of God proffer slick and well rehearsed renditions of 'God's Love'
when it was also painfully apparent to me that this was an act and they didn't
have the first clue what they were talking about.....nor did they really
care. One can only wonder how much appreciation they'd have for God's Love
if no one put coins into their plates.
It is true that Father's love is infinite and the depth of it is profound.
One can not state with any clarity what unconditional love feels like, even
after it has arrived. There is a moment where one 'can' reach to the
Father and he grants a peek into the window and the truth of all things seems
so simple - not complex. Further, that his love is unconditional and the scope
of it so grand and so large that one can't help but feel humbled
in the face of something so 'good'. When one realizes that this massive affection
is directed at you (despite your warts) and that Father thinks better
of you than you do yourself.
An associate called me one day in tears and I asked, What's Wrong? She said,
nothing is wrong - everything is right. Baffled, I asked for an explanation
and she related to me the information I've just given you. Immediately, I
knew what she was talking about. This isn't something that can be faked. Once
one receives The Father Moment, it alters the way you see things forever.
It also removes any doubt of His existence or His nature. Father no longer
resides in the realm of a belief but is, instead, a hard fact.
Now, the cynic would demand proof - a 'little' miracle. From experience
I've learned that no amount of proving will ever be sufficient to change
the heart of a cynic.
There was a man who engaged me in conversation on the posting forum. He
tells me he had a dream and I should tell him what it was (without stating
anything about the dream). As a rule, I don't do tricks and I'm not Miracles
Are Us. Yet, in his case, I made an exception because I was the person he
was speaking to in the dream.
I told him that I had a conversation with a man who held me in the highest
contempt. It would be more accurate to say that I was 'trying' to have a conversation
with this person. Yet, his angst with me made communication impossible. He
was the man. From this point, he shut up and left the forum. How this man
became so barren and so bitter, I don't know. Freewill always factors into
the equation here.
The truth can only be offered - not imposed. Father's truth is a gift granted
to those who have a) earned the privilege or b) are able to accept it. Father
granted freewill and, unlike governments, He is not disposed to take it from
Father is the author of truth. Religion is an invention of man. Frequently,
depending upon the subject, the two can be one and the same whilst at other
times the interpretations of men deviate greatly from the truth. Religion
can be a valid guide and journey to ascendancy, but because of the errors
of men, there is a glass ceiling beyond which only a few can pass. Father
didn't create this....man did.
The Apostle John tells us that to speak directly with the Father, one must
be 'in the spirit'. Yet, how many churches teach this skill? The limitations
of a ministry becomes obvious when those ministers themselves can not practice
it. Thus, they can't teach what they themselves can't do.
It falls to the traveler in the journey to reach out to Father on his own
and to 'believe' that you can. Good living, honesty and integrity (service
to the truth) is the road and, as it happens, this is the same road to ascendancy.
There is a Father Moment waiting for all who care to reach for it.
