There is always an opportunity in every dangerous crisis in life, whether mid-life crisis, identity crisis, faith crisis, health crisis, relationship crisis, house of cards crisis, hurricane/storm/floods crisis, fire crisis or sexual predator crisis. There have been many crisis points lately and the invitation is to turn to God instead of away.
“All you inhabitants of the world…when a signal is raised on the mountain, look! When a trumpet is blown, hear! I will look from my dwelling like a clear heat in sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest…the flower becomes a ripening grape…hew away the branches…at that time GIFTS will be brought” Isaiah 18:3-7
“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her. And there I will give her vineyards, and open the door of hope in the lowest valley. And there she will answer as in the days of her youth…And in THAT DAY, you will call me ‘My Husband’ and divorce all the ba’als…come into covenant… lie down in SAFETY. And I will betroth you to me FOREVER in righteousness, justice, steadfast love, mercy, faithfulness, and you shall KNOW the Lord [change your name to The Name above every name: of God with Christ]” Hosea 2:14-23
Those whose eyes are forced open through suffering whether it is physical suffering, emotional suffering, mental suffering (mental torment, lack of peace, succumbing to fear), or spiritual suffering, having lost faith, hope or Love, AND surrender to be still, listen, and hear the still, small voice that is spiritually perceived in the heart that yields to God, turn to God, are healed or begin their healing journey. Those that turn to God are those who believe the testimony of ascended, glorified Living Christ Jesus and the powerful arm of God is revealed to them; the Son of Righteousness rises in them with healing in His wings; his MOTHERING Christ wings! with his FATHERING protection and provision!!!!!!!
Those who turn away from God; blaming God, blaming other human beings, or blaming themselves, become bitter instead of better, and as they let the root of sin and shame, bitterness and blame grow, it fruits despair, disease, disorders, distress and death. Those who choose to live in unbelief, conflicted, doubting, fearing the other shoe to drop, split, double-minded, receive nothing from God for they harden their heart because of their experiences and circumstances; they stiffen their necks in pride; they let lust of the eyes and lust of the flesh darken their mind and let the lowest reptilian brain take over, becoming like animals.
“He blinds their eyes and hardens their heart, lest they should see with their eyes and perceive with their heart, and turn for me to heal them” John 12:40
“Go to the people and say, ‘You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. For this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes they have closed [eyes wide SHUT]; lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and TURN for me to HEAL them” Acts 28:26-27
Those who turn to God and cry out for Christ Jesus can not only heal but TRANSFORM into the being we were created to be! Instead of conforming to the world, we are transformed by taking the Mind of Christ, the same Mind of God that continually renews and regenerates us through the Power and Wisdom of the Holy Spirit who comes to live in us, making us a holy (whole), perfect (complete with Christ in us) temple for the glory of God to return to so God’s Glory can cover the earth like water covers the sea.
Ask and RECEIVE the eyes of your circumcised heart to be enlightened spiritually with the Light of Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:18; Colossians 2:11-19). When your eyes are full of Christ Light, your whole body is filled with the Light and Glory of Christ in God in you! The Holy Spirit of the Word in you is full of light with NO PART DARK, wholly Light as when a lamp (Lamb of God) with its rays (Christ) gives you light (glory of God in Christ)! (Luke 11:33–36)
“And I saw no external temple in the city…and no need for the SUN or moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God is its LIGHT, and its lamp is the LAMB…nothing unclean shall enter it, no abomination or falsehood…we need NO EXTERNAL light or SUN, for the LORD GOD is our LIGHT to REIGN” Revelation 21:22 to 22:5!
