I have been having some "thoughts" about "What "is" the WORD of God? I will see if I can toss them out for discussion.
My own "experience" has been that I have a "few" times in my life "experienced" a "speaking" THRU me that for sure was NOT me! I don't mean a "discussion" about the "written word" or logos but I mean something "i" did not have to follow up on.......it just worked!
Is the Tree of Life is a FOUNTAIN of "Words"? .........
Words spoken by the Spirit, not just "logos" but "rayma?" "Creative type Words, fully God?" In the
beginning was the Word and the Word was with God
and the Word was God?
Death and LIFE are the the power of "YOUR" tongue!
What does it mean when it says "in that day, I will OPEN a FOUNTAIN?
Has He opened the "fountain" and we have continued to SPEAK
from the other TREE at times?
Now we KNOW that NO fountain "speaks:" BOTH "BLESSING AND CURSING."
These things ought not to be. Is the FOUNTAIN the NEW Covenant, which New
Covenant itself is Jesus? Right?
God gave the power of other peoples tongues as a means of "death" or LIFE
over us but surely not forever! Our "own" tongues thru HIM are able to OVERCOME and
another place it speaks directly "to" the "tongue" saying, " Oh, thou "deceitful tongue" "I will root thee out of the
land of the living!" Somehow or other, the "tongue" of man was "affected" when Eve
did what she did, and the "spirit" of that tongue is in us all and we are all working toward
it's end..........we know that Jesus in us will have to manifest for it to be done fully.
In the beginning was the Word, spoken Word, and the Word was God.
I used to hear a lady teach that this "creative" Word would be restored! I believe
there is truth to that.
For now, I am seeing the "wisdom" in NOT speaking certain things, tho I may "see"
the TREE of knowledge of good and evil, standing there before me, I am NOT to
"eat" of that fruit.......neither "touch it!"
So I am still standing where Adam/Eve were in the Garden. Ha
It has taken "me" a lifetime to come to see this.... how POWERful our "words" are
I always said I'd never say it until God Himself showed it.
The greatest thing I have ever learned is "He that keepeth his tongue keepeth his
soul from troubles." There is a lot of POWER if doing that! And it takes a lot of POWER
to NOT speak at times. ha
Another thing: EATing from the TREE of Knowledge of Good and Evil is
allowing our "own" tongue to SPEAK words that we have to EAT.........
We have all heard that old saying about having to "eat our words." Well, it too is
really true.Sometimes we refer to it as "eating" from the tree of KNOWLEDGE of Good
and Evil.......but when we speak from it, it brings forth "death" to us, NOW, just like
it did for Adam/Eve at the first.
I could not help but notice recently that the commandment was NOT
to EAT of the "fruit" of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, neither
to "touch" IT! It was not to never "touch" the TREE, but "not' to eat
of it's fruit! We must EAT by "speaking" because it says "Death and
LIFE are in the POWER of your tongue!"
I guess to "eat" it is to "speak" our own words, and to "touch" it is to respond to
someone elses "words" that "they" have spoken after taking a bite! Don't touch that
spirit! Leave them alone. Let them both grow until the harvest! Tares "and" Wheat.
The "tares" are destined for the "fire" and the WHEAT is HIS and will be put in the
BARN? No wonder it is said, "Is the SEED in the barn yet?"
So also EATing of the TREE of LIFE!brings forth LIFE!
In order to eat of the TREE of LIFE, we must bear our cross, and I think
sometimes our cross literally is until we learn this. When Jesus was on His Cross, walking
this earthly life, is this why someone was always "trying to catch HIM in His "Words."
We are lifted UP as He was
when we speak HIS Words! His Words bring LIFE! Cannot be spoken against. There is no law against LOVE!~LIFE and Liberty IN HIM!
A wholesome tongue is a TREE of Life, the Bible says.
And, "ye shall EAT the fruit of thine own lips."
For so long, we thought we were having to "eat" what "others" were saying.
NO! We eat the fruit of our "own" lips, and they yield either "death" or LIFE!
Greater is HE that is "in YOU" than he that is in the world..........or others.
Death and LIFE are in the POWER of "your" tongue!
Choose ye therefore LIFE. Here we are back to Deut., which word Deut means
repetition. Which by the way starts out saying, "Ye have compassed "this mountain
long enough" ha .............Well, yea, about like the Isralites, 8 day journey in 40 years? ha
For "this" is the commandment which I command thee "this day!"
It is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.........it is not in heaven,
that thou shouldest say: "Who will go up to heaven and bring
it to us? that we may hear it and do it?
Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, "Who shall go
over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that "we" may hear it, and do it?
THE WORD IS'VERY' NIGH 'THEE'
THAT THOU MAYEST DO IT.
in "THY" MOUTH!~
AND IN "THY" HEART
THAT "THOU" MAYEST DO IT.
Do you "hear" that? God is saying that THE WORD is in our MOUTH?
So is He saying not just the logos is in our mouth, but the Rayma too?
Now, concerning having a Right to EAT of the TREE of LIFE.
In Eccl, it talks about a person who had been given riches, etc. all sorts of
things from God, yet he had not POWER to EAT! What does that mean?
Watch how it is worded about having a RIGHT to EAT of the TREE over in Rev.
Blessed are they that "do" His commandments, that they may have a RIGHT
to the TREE of LIFE!
Jesus "is" the TREE of LIFE and Jesus "is" the Altar!
Hebrews 10 tells us "WE have an "altar" whereof "they" have NO RIGHT
to "eat" which serve the tabernacle.
Almost sounds like they who are serving "the tabernacle" are eating from the first tree,
don't it? Lordy, Miss Clordy!
Blessed are they that "do" His commandments, that they may have a RIGHT
to the TREE of LIFE.
In the beginning was "The Word" and "The Word" was with God
and "The Word" WAS God.
Now back to my title to this: Is the TREE of LIFE a FOUNTAIN of WORDS.
Seems I can recall somewhere that it says, "THY Word.........have I found."
Seems like I can recall "whoso findeth a WIFE" finds "favor with the Lord."
As Adam was put to sleep and Eve presented to him, "after" God had made her,
so shall the "wife" of the Second Adam, Christ, present to "himself" a church w/o
spot or wrinkle, for He will have "washed" her from the "words" that she ate from
the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and He will "give" her the Words of LIfe,
Ephesians says "therefore will a MAN leave his mother and father, and cleave to his WIFE"
For this MAN that comes over that Ezekiel saw will find a wife, for the Father will present Him one. For her to speak His Words, and marry HIM, she is going to be JUST LIKE HIM,.
ONE "with" HIM, and the Work of His Spirit, done by GRACE, not thru her own works, but
Grace will be POURED into her lips, Psa. 45 says, the set "time" to favor her is come.
Another place says, in "that day" a Fountain shall be opened, another says,
in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, John said.
Her words are so powerful that they cause those that are "asleep" to AWAKE, Song of Songs
says. She is waking up the dead, then. And how so? Because she is leaning on her beloved.
She is the ONLY one of her beloved, tho there are concubines many, and many virgins
that follow her.
She is the CHOICE one! This is a GREAT Mystery, Eph 5 says.
There is a commandment given us that we have to "obey" to have the RIGHT to EAT of the TREE of LIFE!
There comes a time when we hear the Spirit, "let him that is filthy be
filthy still" and let him that is HOLY be HOLY still. Blessed are they
that "do" His commandments, that they may have the RIGHT to the
TREE of LIFE! He causeth his SUN to shine on the Just and the UNjust
but He grants the EATing of the TREE of Life to those that "do" His
Commandments. Father, help us.
