Just Because You don’t See It…

According to 2 Kings 6:8-14, there was a period of time, that Israel and Syria were warring against one another. The Syrians would often attempt, to set-up ambushes upon Israel. However, all these military strategies would fail – because Elisha (the Prophet of Israel) would tell the King  – what areas to stay away from!  

The King of Syria eventually became furious. He even accused his own people of sharing military secrets with the opposition…until he learned, that it was indeed Elisha who was protecting Gods’ people! As a result, of this treason – the King of Syria wanted Elisha dead!

Now, Elisha and his young disciple fled into a mountainous city called Dothan, but word got back to the King of Syria – and he immediately sent his best troops to that location. To catch Elisha, by surprise – the troops were sent out by night and then surrounded the city.

When Elishas’ disciple, woke up and went out, early the next morning – he only saw the Syrian Army – with horses and chariots all throughout the mountains. “Oh, my lord, what are we going to do?!” the disciple asked. “Don’t be afraid,” Elisha answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

2 Kings 6:17

Then Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.


I shared this story and scriptures with you, just to convey one principle point: 

“Just because we don’t see [it], doesn’t mean [it] isn’t there!” ~Dwayne B. Neal

According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, when we SEE (experience) life, through our limited five senses – we’re only perceiving 1% of the truth. However, if we’re able to see beyond the limits of the 1% – we will and experience life from another perspective – a God perspective – a real, true and authentic perspective.

With that being said, we have only a few hours remaining in this week to SEE and experience Life, from “Gods’ point of view” – and tap into another reality.  

Yes, we can tap into the “99% Reality” at any moment. Paradoxically, however, the Kabbalists also teach, that each measure of “time” (year, month, week, day, hour…etc.) Has a specific type of energy that comes along with it.  

  • Genesis 1:14 (NIV) – And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,
  • Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV) – To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 

Subsequently, the energy and scripture reference for this week can be found in: 

Deuteronomy 30:15 (KJV)SEE, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

Without getting into all that principles that this scripture conveys – it’s important to remember, that we’re either seeing (experiencing) the “good life” – that is set before us, or the “bad life” that is set before us. Think of our life experiences as a coin: we’re either seeing the heads (representing the good life and/or blessings) – or – we’re seeing the tails (representing the bad life and/or curses). Now, it’s very interesting to note, that just because we’re seeing only one side of the coin – doesn’t mean that the other side of the coin doesn’t exist. 

That’s the power of this week! If we’re experiencing a contentious relationship – we get to see peace and harmony within this relationship; if we’re experiencing sickness and ill health – we get to see our healing; if we’re seeing overdrafts and negative account balances – we get to experience our prosperity! 

Paradoxically, if we’re already seeing “the good life” – then we get the opportunity to see Satan. But not in a bad or negative sense…we get to see – when “he” (anthropomorphically speaking) attempts to ambush us – and thwart our Visions (pun intended) – and plans that God has prepared for us. With this seeing (knowing) – we can sidestep “his” booby traps – and continue with “the good life” experience.

1 Peter 5:8b (KJV) – because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

For us to see the true reality of our lives – and to access the remaining of this week’s energy; I suggest that we employ the use of the Hebrew Letters. Our eyes are the most advanced scanner and transmitters of spiritual energy for our Soul. The Hebrew letters work as barcodes of the spiritual energy – allowing us to access the positive aspect, of our internal Nature. 

Scanning these sequences of letters with the intention of seeing “Gods’ Point of View” gives us the opportunity to make this connection.  

NOG_69_1A
Think about the positive people, circumstances, events, and energy that you would like to see and experience today as you scan and meditate on these letters (scanning from ⬅ right to left)! 

NOTE: You can also use this practice during LION’S ♌ GATE (8/8 – 8/12) – and ask to see what is your true purpose, what is important, and how you can better serve for the greatest and highest good!

HE Didn’t Ask Us To Move IT!

Life is indeed a paradox. While we are often instructed to examine ourselves – to see if we’re in the Faith [2 Corinthians 13:5] – we are discouraged from evaluating ourselves. There is a difference.

Once upon a time, there was a man who was sleeping at night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled with light and the Saviour appeared. The Lord told the man He had work for him to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. The Lord explained that the man was to push against the rock with all his might. This the man did, day after day. For many years he toiled from sun up to sun down, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive surface of the unmoving rock, pushing with all his might.

 

Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, feeling that his whole day had been spent in vain. Seeing that the man was showing signs of discouragement, Satan decided to enter the picture placing thoughts into the man’s mind such as: “You have been pushing against that rock for a long time, and it hasn’t budged. Why kill yourself over this? You are never going to move it.” Thus giving the man the impression that the task was impossible and that he was a failure.

 

These thoughts discouraged and disheartened the man even more. “Why kill myself over this?” he thought. “I’ll just put in my time, giving just the minimum of effort and that will be good enough.” And that he planned to do until one day he decided to make it a matter of prayer and take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.

 

“Lord,” he said, “I have laboured long and hard in your service, putting all my strength to do that which you have asked. Yet, after all this time, I have not even budged that rock a half a millimeter. What is wrong? Why am I failing?” To this the Lord responded compassionately, “My child, when long ago I asked you to serve me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against the rock with all your strength, which you have done. Never once did I mention to you that I expected you to move it. Your task was only to push.

 

This parable reminds me that so many times, we estimate and attempt to give an account of our selves and “our” service toward God. At the moment we begin to make calculations – then we open the opportunity for discouragement. Since our estimation is very limited – we will only come up with a very limited estimation of ourselves.

Isaiah 55:8-9King James Version (KJV)

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Yes. Giving accounts, and making evaluations is very good for business; it is not so good when it comes to ourselves. And here are some of the reasons why I say this:

  • We can “under” estimate ourselves (as we so often do) – by thinking that we haven’t made any improvements in the area of our desires. A thought like: “I should be further along by now” is an indication of an “under” estimation and calculation of ourselves.
  • We can “over” estimate ourselves (this we do also) – by thinking, that because “we obtained” (actually we didn’t do it, but GOD did – Deuteronomy 8:18) the desired results that we’re doing the right thing. [Proverbs 16:2 / Proverbs 21:2]

In either calculation – this opens the door for Satan (Our Accuser – Revelation 12:10) to “come” in. Now the word: COME – is in quotations – because Satan is not some outside entity – but represents our very own EGO. From this, we can infer – that Satan (our ego) – is on the inside of us. Satan, is that part of us, that arises when our “why” or motive is not truly obeying God.

For example, in the above parable – the man (by his own accounts) thought that he wasn’t doing what God had instructed. Simply, because he wasn’t moving the massive stone. Therefore, Satan (his ego) began to become more relevant – than  obeying God. God just said “push the stone…”

I said all of that – just to say this: Our job is to obey God – PERIOD! Not give an estimation of ourselves, or to determine if Life is unfair or not – our job is only to obey. Because, while we’re busy calculating and giving accounts for ourselves – we leave no room for God to “do it” (for lack of a better). Quick Question(s): Would you rather give an account or estimation of yourself – or – would you rather God do it?! Better yet, whose estimation do you REALLY trust – Gods’ – or your own?!

1 Samuel 15:22 (KJV) – And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams….

The bottom line is this: Once we stop evaluating ourselves – we will stop evaluating other people. Or Better said: Just Love and Obey God…Period!!! And, this is how we can easily determine if we’re doing what is “asked” of us: IF WE’RE LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS AS OURSELVES!

Again, Our Neighbor! Meaning our racist neighbor – our ugly neighbor – our rich neighbor – our poor neighbor – our Christian neighbor – as well as our Muslim neighbor – our straight neighbor – and our gay neighbor – our married neighbor – our single neighbor….etc. I think you get the picture. All of these labels, in the final analysis are nothing but evaluations (judgements) – and our only job is to LOVE them as we LOVE Ourselves. If we find ourselves, not LOVING others (and this includes LIKING) – for whatever reason – then our self evaluation is very simple: We Don’t Love God – Neither Do We Like (LOVE) Ourselves!!!

Mark 12:30-31King James Version (KJV)

30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Why Don’t We Say This Ourselves?!

If Faith is the substance and evidence of the things that we hope to have, and desire to become (and it is) {Hebrews 11:1}; And if Faith Comes by what Hear (and it does) {Romans 10:17} ….then wouldn’t it make “common sense”, for us to speak to ourselves Faithful words of self-empowerment, hope, encouragement, and Love ❤?!! I mean that only makes sense….Right?!

I do, however, understand, that paradoxically commons sense, ain’t COMMON! (With all things being consistent) Our ONLY drawback in life – is that we don’t speak – from “ourselves” (from the God within) – to ourselves (to the human part of us).  Do we not know – or have we forgotten: THAT GOD IS WITHIN US?!!! {1 Corinthians 3:16} 

By speaking from ourselves – TO – ourselves (using the power of the I AM) – we activate the nature of God within us. With God on our side – Any and Everything is possible. However, it is our duty and job to induce GOD into ACTION, and we do so by calling on “Him”! 

REMEMBER: Within you is the power to motivate yourself !!! 💯 You are the Captain of Your own Ship….So Forget What Others Are Saying About You — WHAT ARE YOU TELLING YOURSELF?!! {1 John 4:4} 🔑🔑 

Happy Monday Kings and Queens…Let’s Make It An Awesome Week (on Purpose)!!!! 


Today’s Winning Affirmation:I AM the Captain of My Ship and the Master of My Fate!!

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 
  • Romans 10:17 (KJV) – So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Receiving vs. Taking

There’s a big difference between Receiving “our” desires, and Taking what we believe to be ours. The distinction lies in HOW we are allowing. There’s an allowance that comes primarily and solely from God. Once we receive this “type” of allowance – God then gives us the desires of our heart – or better said, “He” (meaning the Light of God) gives us what to desire – a right desire – a whole desire. 

  • Psalm 37:4 (ESV) – Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 
  • Proverbs 10:22 (KJV) – The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. 

Then there’s also another kind of allowance. The kind that also comes from God – but IS NOT primarily and solely from “Him” (I say this, for lack of a better term). You see, when we don’t allow God to “do ‘His’ thing” – then we are erroneously taking – what’s already meant and intended to be for us (again, I say this as a man and for lack of a better term). To clarify, my point, let’s visit the King James Version of Matthew 11:12

Matthew 11:12 (KJV) – And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. 

The word suffereth here means: allow – and the kingdom of heaven is The Manifested World of Action (aka the physical world – as separate from the spiritual). From this knowledge, we can surmise: That God allows the ACTION of violence – and those who are violent take what they desire – instead of receiving it from God “himself”

Yes, taking is allowed. The problem with taking, however, is that when we do – we open ourselves up to experience sorrow and negativity. Taking is not the Blessing of the Lord – because while we may obtain [IT] (our desires) – they come with side effects, and will be difficult to maintain or hold on to. 

Jeremiah 2:13 (VOICE) – My people are guilty of two evils: They have abandoned Me, the spring of living waters; And instead, they have settled for dead and stagnant water from cracked, leaky cisterns of their own making. 

Other than the aforementioned – here are a few other reasons why TAKING is so dangerous: 

  1. When we take – we are not prepared to handle the energy of [IT]; therefore we short circuit our blessings – due to the overload! It’s best that we receive our desires in small increments, so that we can be in control of our lives (or least that how it will appear to us – make no mistake: GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL). Remember, patience is a virtue. {Luke 21:19}
  2. TAKING blurs “common sense” and we then take for the wrong reason(s): James 4:3 (KJV) – Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. — To only please ourselves – and – not to glorify God!
  3. We actually might take something, that really doesn’t belong to us (Isaiah 55:8-9Proverbs 3:6)!!! This is especially the case when we befriend or marry “the wrong” person. Not that person in and of themselves is bad, evil, or wrong..etc. They’re just “wrong” for us. When we take, we just may have to consider terminating our friendship or getting a divorce – simply because we took what didn’t belong to us in the first place {Matthew 24:38 / Luke 17:27}! 

When we don’t receive – we often get impatient or frustrated – and begin to take. Again, when we take – the focus of our desires is only for ourselves – and not God. TAKING allows us to disregard the process – by not having to adhere to the Laws of the Universe (well, at least from our limited mindset)! 

RECEIVING allows us to effortlessly manifest our desires, in the most truest and authentic way – because we are then allowing God to reveal them to us – in “His” Perfect Time and in “His” Perfect Will! 

The bottom line is this: RECEIVING is allowing that which is essential; TAKING is allowing that which is optional! Heed the Wisdom: What is Essential will ALWAYS outweigh what is Optional — ALWAYS!!! 

Shabbat Shalom Kings and Queens!!! And A Happy Fathers Day to All Dads & Father Figures!


Today’s Winning Affirmation:I AM Allowing GO(o)D to Flow into My Life…I AM RECEIVING!!

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • Psalm 24:7-10 (KJV)

7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

I AM….Celebrated by the Universe

Whether we believe it or not – there is a ‘Cloud of Witnesses’ cheering us on so that we can reach our goals, dreams, desires and destinations. It is important that we remember this; especially during those times when we don’t get the support, we’re looking for – from our friends and family. We should also keep in mind, that GO(o)D is IN us! And has – and – ALWAYS WILL have our back! 

David encouraged himself in the Lord! This is the Power of I AM! I AM is not only a personal statement of our BEING – but it signifies and directly points to – the God that is within us! Again, I AM is NOT just about me(us) – it is about God with me(us)!!!

So go ahead Kings and Queens – celebrate yourself – if no one else will celebrate or encourage you. Remember, you are not alone! You and God make a powerful team; and are a force to be reckoned with. Also take into consideration: King David, Moses, Abraham, Matthew, Paul…etc. – and – we dare not leave out Jesus; all of these are examples of GOD HAVING THEIR BACK! If “He” did it for them, surely “He” WILL do the same for us(in fact it’s ALREADY done)!!

Therefore, take those blessed hands of yours, reach up….and then pat yourselves on the back (encourage yourself) – knowing, that as you do – you are receiving help and support from the Universe! Because what this simple act ACTUALLY means is: THAT THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE PATTING YOU ON THE BACK (after all it is GOD that is IN and WITH You – and don’t you EVER forget it)!!! 


Today’s Winning Affirmation:I AM Surrounded, Encouraged and Celebrated by the Universe!”

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • 1 Samuel 30:6 (KJV) – And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.
  • Hebrews 12:1 (CJB) – So then, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us, too, put aside every impediment — that is, the sin which easily hampers our forward movement — and keep running with endurance in the contest set before us….

Arise & Shine

The main reason, God woke you up this morning – was for you to honor “Him”. Paradoxically, we honor God – by making the most of ourselves. It is vital that we follow these 10 “rules” on a consistent, habitual and daily basis:  

  • Wake up Early & Get Up On Time!
  • Always Give Thanks (First to God and then to Others)!
  • Arrive 15 Minutes Early to any scheduled appointment (i.e. job, meeting, date…etc.)
  • Consciously take Care of “Your” Body (which is God’s Temple): Exercise, Drink Plenty of Water, Eat Healthy Breakfast…etc.
  • Visualize and Meditate on Todays Successes
  • Take on the “Tough Challenges” First!
  • Make a conscious effort to laugh
  • Proactively share and give to others
  • Remain Focused!
  • Reinforce “your Light” through daily affirmations and making a habit of practicing the 9 aforementioned principles! 

At first glance, these “things” may seem selfish or personal at best. However, if we take for instance: taking good care of your body – means that (1) you can better serve others when you – yourself is fit; and (2) (without being too judgy) people who DON’T take care of themselves are actually being selfish – because then they have to rely on your energy and light when their body begins to fail them. 

Just something to consider!


Today’s Winning Affirmation: “I AM My Own Sacred Light! And I Honor the GOD that’s Within Me!” 

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • Isaiah 60:1 (KJV) – Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. 
  • Matthew 5:16 (KJV) – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Bring Forth Fruit That Is Meet

As of late, I’ve found myself having a desire to feel better and to add to the quality of my life. For this to take place, it is imperative that I get back in shape. Believe it or not, there was a time in my life, where I had less than 5% body fat, ran (not jogged) at least 3 miles every day, and still, had plenty of energy to go to work, plus do “everything else” I wanted to do! 😉  

However, after a very long hiatus of many, many years of inactivity (other than the once a year personal tradition of jogging/walking the Peachtree Road Race) – I now, find myself gasping for air after walking only a few blocks! To make matters worse, this only a couple times a week! There was a time when I could eat and drink anything I wanted – and my metabolism would dissolve the intake very quickly! But, now my stomach is overlapping my beltline regardless of how healthy I eat!  

I said all of that, just to say this: that I literally, have to “get in shape” in order to get back in shape! I know it sounds like an oxymoron – but, because I “let myself go” and didn’t maintain a healthy body; it’s almost as if I’m starting over from scratch.

This is probably, what John meant when he said, “bring forth fruit meet for repentance” {Matthew 3:8} Of course, as it is often said, “Timing is everything” {Ecclesiastes 3:13}; and during this season, in particular, God is “calling” for REPENTANCE! Not only as a nation – but individually as well.

Repentance is an opportunity to return back to God. To restore everything that was seemingly lost (both spiritually and materially). Repentance done in the “right way” will also remove those blockages, that hindered our connection to God – in the first place.  In this sense, repentance allows us the opportunity restore ourselves – from where we stand right now – there’s no “starting from scratch” or building ourselves up to where we “ought” to be! 

Paradoxically, however, we must “get in shape spiritually” (bring forth fruit) in order to get back in shape – or in this sense – in order to bring about true and lasting repentance. Simply stated: we must get in shape, in order to get BACK in shape. What do I mean?

Well, it’s been said, that to repent means to change one’s mind. But, I say, that to repent means to change one’s State of Being (the innermost ACTION of our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs) — entirely! For this type of repentance to take place, we MUST change our mindset (bringing forth fruit) – so that our Soul and Spirit are united back with God (meet for repentance). Likewise, me walking a few blocks twice a week probably won’t get me back to where I used to be. However, it does prepare my mind and body to exert itself more…until such a time that I come to that place (bring forth fruit meet…). 

For me, to even get back half-way — of where I desire to be physically; I must undergo a radical change in my mindset. I MUST prepare my mind so that my body will follow. I already know – where I desire to be – and what exactly what I’m attempting to get out of this process. Therefore, I must not look for an easy way out. I must consciously, and very deliberately examine what I eat and drink. And I MUST be more consistent in my vow to do so. 

Likewise, the same attitude Spiritually MUST take place in order for us to REPENT! This, however, is not an easy process! Bringing forth the fruit of a changed mind and renewed Spirit – means embarking on a (seemingly dreadful) self-examination process. {2 Corinthians 13:5} This inward examination process includes (but not limited to):

  • Looking back over the course of this year and seeing how many people we offended (whether intentionally or not)!
  • Did we mistreat, or use anybody to fulfill our own selfish wants and desires?
  • Did we GIVE our tithes (not just in a typical sense – but did we feed or visit the “poor” or those in need)?
  • Were we disobedient to God’s direction for OUR lives (not someone else – remember my ACTION is King!)?
  • Were we impeccable with our word? Meaning, did we promise to do something and not follow through?

…or any other thing that comes to mind, that appears to separate us from our Creator!

But, please take note (and this is very important!): Even in during this season of self-examination, we still must do it cheerfully and with gratitude! {Psalm 100:2A} Real repentance is not in our tears, what we regret, or in feeling sorry for ourselves. Repentance is a season where we can become fully aware that we are and will always be ONE WITH GOD:

  • Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV) – Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. 
  • Romans 8:38-39 (KJV)

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

True repentance means not seeking God’s Hand (what “He” can do for us) – but, seeking God’s Face (Being in “His” Presence); so we must be truthful with ourselves. {Psalm 101:7} God already knows the truth concerning us – so it is extremely vital that we be truthful with ourselves. For example, if I attempting to run a marathon – but can’t even walk a couple of blocks – then I drastically run the risk of – doing more harm than good. This is also the case, where the Spirit is concerned! 

Just remember God didn’t move – it was us that changed. We neglected to exercise our spiritual muscles – and wonder why life – is not going as it should. The good news is, we can take as much “time” (for lack of a better term) – to bring forth fruit. 

2 Peter 3:9 (NIV) – The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 

Just as in the physical sense, whipping our spiritual bodies back into shape is difficult at first, but the rewards far outweigh the struggle…we just have to keep at it..until as it says, in Psalm 16:11(English Standard Version): You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore! 

Now, Let’s Get BACK To Where We Know We’re Supposed To BE!! REPENT –  but First, bring the right attitude!

AWESOME WORK!!! WE MADE IT! The Torah teaches that the entire nation stood at Sinai to witness the giving of the Law. The rabbis teach that even future generations were present at Sinai. This represents the elevation of the Soul/Spirit…similar to the Day of Pentecost {Read Acts 2:1-21}!

Splendor within Indwelling Presence

WEEK 7: The Kingdom!

Day 47: May 20-21, 2015                    {Psalm 130:1-8}

 Today is the energy of Humility in Nobility. Take inventory of the past 46 days. Hindsight is 20/20. Do you see the blessings and the growth? As we come to the end of this Omer, use this day to appreciate the ladder the Creator gave us to climb towards Him. 

~Karen Berg

For many people, awe is the basis of our first spiritual experiences. Being amazed at a natural phenomenon is one accessible experience (tonight the clouds were illuminated by the setting sun, highlighted against the glowing mountains, for example). Feeling in touch with some larger reality, as at a birth or a death, is another. For others, it is the clarity that accompanies an intellectual realization. For still others, the sense of overcoming overwhelming odds and accomplishing a difficult task. In all these cases, we remember that there are many magnificent aspects of the Divine, each contributing, each facet magnifying and beautifying the Whole. Each of us is part of the splendor that is inextricably part of the Holy Presence, that One of which we are a part and which is a part of us. The prayer “Ayn od milvado”, loosely translated as “there is nothing except the Oneness” reminds us of the eternal unfolding in which we are honored to participate.

Scripture Verses For Day 47:  

1 John 4:4-6 (KJV)

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
