Oy vey! What is a Gentile to do??
All systems are breaking down as the light can no longer be contained! God’s truth is truth and no matter how hard the darkness has tried to conceal it, it simply, cannot!! This is the miracle that we all should be marveling at!!
God’s truth is truth. Now, looking back we can see everything!! We are not in Egypt anymore. Darkness cannot oppress us — God’s truth is here for all to see!!
The light cannot be contained!
In the beginning, man was created; there in the womb is the darkest of all places. We all begin our journey there.
Where are you?
Do you know that the light of God resides inside of YOU?
What are you doing with your light? The light was never meant to be concealed. The darkness tries very hard to conceal this light not knowing that the darker it gets the stronger the light is!
A New Age
Darkness is becoming light…
It is time to celebrate the light!!
This light last forever! We are the oil that will keep its light shinning bright for all that is darkness to see!!
I am not Jewish, but as you know, I love the Jew. That is because we have the most unique relationship that somehow has been hidden from all of us all this time. God made us. Inside of us is Him! That means you are His image and so am I. This is a realization that the world is only beginning to see now!
1 Who would have believed our report, and to whom was the arm of the Lord revealed? 2 And he came up like a sapling before it, and like a root from dry ground, he had neither form nor comeliness; and we saw him that he had no appearance. Now shall we desire him? 3 Despised and rejected by men, a man of pains and accustomed to illness, and as one who hides his face from us, despised and we held him of no account. 4 Indeed, he bore our illnesses, and our pains-he carried them, yet we accounted him as plagued, smitten by God and oppressed. 5 But he was pained because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; the chastisement of our welfare was upon him, and with his wound we were healed. 6 We all went astray like sheep, we have turned, each one on his way, and the Lord accepted his prayers for the iniquity of all of us. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he would not open his mouth; like a lamb to the slaughter he would be brought, and like a ewe that is mute before her shearers, and he would not open his mouth. 8 From imprisonment and from judgment he is taken, and his generation who shall tell? For he was cut off from the land of the living; because of the transgression of my people, a plague befell them. 9 And he gave his grave to the wicked, and to the wealthy with his kinds of death, because he committed no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth. 10 And the Lord wished to crush him, He made him ill; if his soul makes itself restitution, he shall see children, he shall prolong his days, and God's purpose shall prosper in his hand. 11 From the toil of his soul he would see, he would be satisfied; with his knowledge My servant would vindicate the just for many, and their iniquities he would bear. 12 Therefore, I will allot him a portion in public, and with the strong he shall share plunder, because he poured out his soul to death, and with transgressors he was counted; and he bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors. Isaiah 53 -- Chabad.org
The light is us realizing how special we are and how we each have a special purpose here! The thing is, we have such a hard time believing that we are good enough. But get your insecurity out of your head because if you cannot accept that you are good then just stop believing in God all together.
“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.” ’ ”Zechariah 8:23
My love is the Jew. The Jew is always the light. I see the light in them — the Jew sees the light in us who love God. Together we are a team!! Together we are the light that reveals God in the darkness that is all around us. Together we are Israel. The world that does not know this light is our passion because darkness is our opposite.
I am a woman and I am a Gentile. I cannot be anything else. I can only be true to who I am. I am bound by my love to God, my Creator, to be authentic about who I am. I cannot help that my journey is different than yours. We both stand in the very same spot but both came here from two very different places. The challenge now is to put ourselves in each other shoes to see life from each other’s perspective — That is how we get out of the darkness.
We are in a relationship with the darkness that tries to conceal our light! The truth is, you are special beyond what you can ever imagine.
I am here to tell you that you are.
Thus says the Lord: “Israel is My son, My firstborn.Exodus 4:22
We are here to be light together!! Our biggest obstacle is ourselves that cannot believe the truth of who we really are — Are you stopping yourself from accepting your truth?
You are your biggest challenge.
I can only tell you what I see!
The darkness reveals who we are!!
Out of Egypt is a story that represents freedom from the oppression that is darkness. God did not create us to be in darkness. He created us to be light!! God desires us to experience divine love by being who we truly are! We are not darkness!!
The miracle is that you cannot hide God’s light! The light will shine bright even with limited oil. The oil is our faith, which reveals the highest light of all! — The light of Messiah who is in God’s children who love our Father, in whole truth.
Inside each of us is a church or a synagogue, a perfect place, that we can go into anytime. This place is who we are and is no longer hidden. From that center is the truest expression of who we are. Inside this place is the purest form of love.
God is a fire that gives. He does not consume but always illuminates. Surrendering to the truth that is hidden inside of us is initiating the meltdown of the physical that desires to contain it. Messiah is born out of the dark womb that no longer can conceal him.
The light has been here all along, just difficult to see, as it resides in the deepest depths of our darkness.
We are human with the free will to make our own rules and create our own reality. But God’s truth is God’s and cannot be concealed.
This is the miracle of the light!
God is always present — He hid His firstborn deep inside of all of us.
