“Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)
I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark…Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I’m only falling apart
And there’s nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there’s only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart”
This song is an apt description of the world’s definition of love without Christ in your heart, rooted and grounded in Christ, built up in Christ and entering the Head of Christ which is oneness with our Father, led by the Holy Spirit.
The counterfeit lights and false religious-leading has you following the world, a person, an institution and when you say “turn around bright eyes” what you promised us is no where in sight, “turn around” we are in the dark; where is the light you offered at first?
It is the bait and switch of those who promise and cannot deliver because they do not know God; they do not have the Light of Christ.
Jesus says there are imposters and those who disguise themselves as light or servants of righteousness, but their heart is dark. They speak the “right words” but their heart is full of manipulative agendas, lies and deception to keep you away from the saving grace and glory of God and under their control. Jesus says some search the scriptures but they will not come to me.
Jesus says, “Come to Me and I will give you rest. I am humble hearted, I am gentle and you can learn from me when you yoke with me instead of yoking with those of the world.”
Jesus has no ulterior motive; Jesus only Loves without opposite, because God is Love. Only Jesus can save, heal, deliver, set free and transform you into His likeness and image by the Power and Presence of the Holy Spirit of God.
We come to Jesus to yoke with him. When people say, “God is in control” it is confusing because we are NOT robots. More accurate is to say we yoke to God instead of staying in bondage to the world. We can only do ALL things WITH God; in RELATIONSHIP with God’s VISIBLE form: Christ Jesus. We yoke with Jesus and God is in control IN US when we give it to Him. When we yoke with Jesus we find REST.
We come to Jesus (the Eternally Living Holy One) to find rest for our soul. Our soul is three parts: heart, mind and will. When our will finds rest yoked with Jesus, we are free to choose God, free to choose life, free to make the highest and best choices. When our heart finds rest, we can live in the Peace of God beyond understanding. When our mind finds rest in the Presence of God in our secret heart, the holy of holies secret place where heaven meets earth in us, we find we can be still and silent knowing God, hearing God, being led by God, basking in the glory of God in Jesus, beyond knowledge.
We can find rest here, now, within, in the midst of all circumstances, and be refreshed and regenerated DAILY. Thank God!
God did not give us a spirit of fear but a Spirit of Love which transforms our heart to Jesus’ Heart of Compassion, Wisdom and Healing at our core; a Spirit of Power that transforms our will in the strength of Jesus’ Joy in our belly; and a Sound Mind: a transformed mind that is full of light of the higher Knowledge and Revelation of God–knowledge of the glory!!!!!!!
