“Read, Hear, and Heed”
The invitation to engage the life and identity of Jesus and the movements of His Spirit has already been given to everyone; and granted to anyone who believes. The key into the place of tangible encounter is an active response to what is read in scripture – –
“HEAR & HEED!”
– HEAR: To receive or become conscious of a sound using your ears. To be told information about something.
– HEED: To listen to and follow advice.
Take time to read, hear what He is revealing, heed the truth, and follow the trail to His heart. Can you “sense” Him? Welcome to the Door of encounter.
ps. Many times people ask, “How can I begin to experience the presence of the Lord?” I do not believe in manmade formula’s, but often will look to see what Jesus’ guidance was to those who searched Him out.
He told Matthew, and eleven others, to “Follow Me.” Today we can do the same. You can discern His presence while peering into the scriptures, yes? Where you sense Him, right there — let the eyes of your heart turn towards Him. He recognizes that you have turned aside to encounter Him. Let His presence bath over you…. You and He can take it from here.
The angel instructed John to direct us into the blessing of life through the actions of ” READ, HEAR, AND HEED”. God told us that this book of Revelation is the identity of His Son. Each morsel of Truth found within this book leads us into the dimensions of who He is. He is alive and ready to engage whomever believes.
Moses turned aside and encountered Him in the burning bush.
A Kingdom Grandfather taught me years ago…And it is true…As children we see Jesus with our eyes — externally. When we believe, Jesus enters into our heart. Once He is King of our heart, we must learn to see Jesus with the eyes of our heart. It is a challenge we can all achieve.
“When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” John 14:20
He is worthy of our time,
