Last evening was a magical night filled with the sweet sound of crickets and frogs, I slept outdoors in the cool air breezes listening to the music they sang.
I woke feeling rested and peaceful, my beautiful friend served avocado on toast, cantaloupe, mango, papaya, yogurt and granola, among many other delicious treats. What a wonderful breakfast feast! More friends arrived to enjoy this special event, sharing hugs, additional breakfast goodies and mutual respect & love for one another.
My hope is that the glasses we wore were not defective and tomorrow we will all see perfectly, or at least as we have seen today. The scene was amazing as the energetic shift of the sun and moon was felt by all.
This scene took my breathe away and left me with a calm that lasted for hours. Even on the 5.5 hour journey home which normally only takes one hour … I relaxed.
As evening approaches once more, I think on the events of today and time spent with truly wonderfulpeople, and I am happy. I am happy that on this day I experienced such blessings, I really couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect.
You can be certain that it’s coming – an incredible millennium that will be ushered in after Christ’s return. And the devil doesn’t want you to know about his 1,000-year prison sentence because it reveals his true character.
The resurrection of the righteous begins the 1,000 years. The resurrection of the wicked ends the 1,000 years
“These came to life again and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4
This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. Revelation 20:5, 6.
What exactly are the symptoms of the beginnings of the First Resurrection? Do you suppose it is the lifting of the veil, the fog that has clouded the minds of humanity for so long? If so, then it certainly is occurring, right now.
The Bible says that Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit during the 1,000 years. What is this pit?
The word for “bottomless pit” in the original Greek is “abussos,” or abyss. That same word is used in the Greek version of the Old Testament in Genesis 1:2 in connection with the creation of the earth, but there it is translated “deep.” “The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” How interesting! The words “deep,” “bottomless pit,” and “abyss” here refer to the same thing–the earth in its totally dark, disorganized form before God made order of it. Jeremiah, in describing this earth during the 1,000 years, used virtually the same terms as these in Genesis 1:2: “without form and void,” “no light,” “no man,” ‘black.” Jeremiah 4:23, 25, 28. So the battered, dark earth with no people alive will be called the bottomless pit, or abyss, during the 1,000 years just as it was in the beginning before Creation was completed. Isaiah 24:22 also speaks of Satan and his angels during the 1,000 years as “gathered in the pit” and “shut up in the prison.”
What is the chain that binds Satan? Why is he bound?
The chain is symbolic, a chain of circumstances. A spirit being cannot be confined with a literal chain. Satan is “tied down” because he has no people to deceive. The wicked are all dead and the righteous are all in heaven. The Lord confines the devil to this earth so he cannot roam the universe hoping to find someone to deceive. Forcing the devil to stay on the earth, alone with his demons for a thousand years with no one to deceive, will be for him the most galling chain ever forged.
What happens to the wicked–living and dead–at Jesus’ second coming?
“With the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.” Isaiah 11:4. “When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God.” 2 Thessalonians 1:7, 8. “Let the wicked perish at the presence of God.” Psalms 68:2. “But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.” Revelation 20:5.
Fourteen years ago, after many methods and failed attempts, I was finally able to kick the habit of smoking. That little piece of Nicorette was literally, my life saver.
The craving would pass over my body, pulling fiercely at my mind … SMOKE!!! I would toss in a small piece of that gum, give it a good few chomps, and stuff it in the cheek of my mouth. Five minutes later, relief, craving gone. It only took 4 days, and then I was done for good.
Emotions are quite the same. When I feel anxiety, or something similar, I remind myself it is only energy. I breathe and relax into it, I feel it as it moves through my body and out. Usually, in 5 minutes ~ much like the craving I had when quitting smoking ~ the energy bubble is gone and I am once again at ease (or at least not about to jump from the skin!).
An upset, or feeling of wanting to affirm something to make it clear and understood, and to fit in with others during a group conversation, comes about and once again, I refrain and hold that thought or need. Soon, it too, fades and the need is no longer one of importance.
Sometimes we hear what is rolling around in our minds, and not what is actually said. It is okay when this occurs, for to be instantly understood isn’t the point of communication much of the time … the planting of seeds for thought is the important issue. Patience to let a topic be for a time, while these seeds sprout is needed, and later, perhaps a revisit to the topic.
Time is an amazing gift. Always, in time, perspective shifts and room for new thoughts is made. A blessing for me, a blessing for all. Seeing these seemingly hidden blessings can be difficult, however with a little practice, they become quite clear.
I just had the most amazing arm and leg massage. She painted my toe and fingernails and smiled, thanking me every time I told her how nice it felt.
I sat while she did her work and listened to a client speak to her daughter in Swedish, and the lady helping me spoke to her co-workers in Vietnamese. She seemed to think an apology was needed, as though it were obvious I did not understand.
My response was this: Listening here is like listening to music, it is nice. At home I prefer songs in another language, I do not like getting caught up in the drama of a song, wrapped up in someone’s story. When I do not understand the words, the music moves me as it is meant to.
I leave the facility 2.5 hours later, this woman treated me like a queen. Yes, I paid, and yes, she earned every single portion and more. I wish I could have given more.
I come across a sign in a yard as I walk back to my car, I stop and smile.
… And I say, YES. Love does indeed win. All we need do is choose it.
Thank you young lady for making my day thus far a pleasant one, and thank you for being so kind.
