A Distasteful Hypocrisy! But Father also knows that more than money, what I really, really want is for people to read and benefit from my experience of life in His Presence!

Father? I have been intent reading the responses and replying to the many bloggers that visit the blogs by Yours truly! Thus my day flew by me and I almost missed it!
What will it be now, my Father? The thing about castles & plantations that I wrote in the review is really not a far-fetched dream. But it is truly something that You could make it happen.
But then, could it be that I am talking nonsense my Father? I know that in the natural such thing is nonsense talk. But in the realm of Your Spirit all things are possible.
Even so, I remember in the past all the grand ideas I had did not ever materialize. And now, writing the review for Derek might have killed any chance for the books that I write to be bought and read by Your children! Why?
Obviously, because my write up about comparing my plantation idea to Derek’s actual project to buy a castle. For Derek’s project is for real as mine? Only an idea!
One hope I do have, whether the books are bought and You supply me with money to take care of whatever is needed to survive in the days ahead, or otherwise! I have nothing to worry about! For You are in control of it all!
You know how I am feeling at the moment. There is a reason why You are giving this sense of suspense. A sense of waiting. A need to sit still.
And if I stepped out of my bonds with that review, I know that You are well able and willing to deliver me from my own predicaments! I wait on You!
Father? Do I really want to sell books and acquire fame & fortune? In a way I do! But, my Father, You know that in the back of my mind is only one thought—my vindication—for my children and close friends to see in a tangible form that You are taking care of me!
And truly, such a thought is a selfish thought! As Derek states, A distasteful hypocrisy! Even so, more than money, what I really, really want is for people to read and benefit from my experience of life in Your Presence! You know that, my Father!
And about my idea of a mansion or a plantation where we all live together in Your Presence in perfect harmony? That idea comes from reading in the Scriptures. For instances, it’s written in Jeremiah 3:12-25,
Go and proclaim these words toward the north where the ten tribes have been taken as captives and say, Return, faithless Israel, says the Master, and I will not cause My countenance to fall and look in anger upon you, for I am merciful, says the Master; I will not keep My anger forever.
Only know, understand, and acknowledge your iniquity and guilt–that you have rebelled and transgressed against the Master your Almighty Yahuwah and have scattered your favors among strangers under every green tree, and you have not obeyed My voice, says the Master.
Return, O faithless children of the whole twelve tribes, says the Master, for I am Master and Master and Husband to you, and I will take you not as a nation, but INDIVIDUALLY–one from a city and two from a tribal family–and I will bring you to Zion.
And I will give you spiritual shepherds after My own heart in the final time, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding and judgment.
And it shall be that when you have multiplied and increased in the land in those days, says the Master, they shall no more say, The ark of the covenant of the Master. It shall not come to mind, nor shall they seriously remember it, nor shall they miss or visit it, nor shall it be repaired or made again for instead of the ark, which represented Almighty Yahuwah’s presence, He will show Himself to be present throughout the city.
At that time they shall call Jerusalem The Throne of the Master, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, in the renown and name of the Master, to Jerusalem; nor shall they walk any more after the stubbornness of their own evil hearts.
In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and together they shall come out of the land of the north to the land that I gave as an inheritance to your fathers.
And I thought how gloriously and honorably I would set you among My children and give you a pleasant land, a goodly heritage, the most beautiful and best inheritance among all nations! And I thought you would call Me My Father and would not turn away from following Me.
Surely, as a wife treacherously and faithlessly departs from her husband, so have you dealt treacherously and faithlessly with Me, O house of Israel, says the Master.
A voice is heard on the bare heights, the weeping and pleading of the sons of Israel, because they have perverted their ways, they have eagerly forgotten the Master their Almighty Yahuwah.
Return, O faithless sons, says the Master, and I will heal your faithlessness. And they answer Behold, we come to You, for You are the Master our Almighty Yahuwah.
Truly in vain is the hope of salvation from the hills and from the tumult and noisy throng on the mountains; truly in and with the Master our Almighty Yahuwah rests the salvation of Israel.
We have been ruined as a nation by our faithlessness and idolatry for the shameful thing has consumed all for which our fathers toiled from our youth–their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters.
Let us lie prostrate in our shame, and let our dishonor and confusion cover us; for we have sinned against the Master our Almighty Yahuwah, we and our fathers; from our youth even to this day we have not obeyed the voice of the Master our Almighty Yahuwah.
O my Master! There is nothing that can or should be added to Your Set Apart words! Those same words pronounced by the mouth of the prophet Jeremiah are being pronounced again by the few You have quickened and raised to proclaim those same words to Your people in these final days.
I beseech You to take the blinds off the eyes of Your children and let them see their faithlessness & idolatry as they perform all of those rituals including the rituals practiced by new group that have found their Hebraic roots.
For it is so easy to settle down and make our own doctrines and stands instead of remaining open and willing to flow with Your Set Apart Spirit as You bring us up to perform in Your service according to Your will not ours.
As for myself from the very beginning in Your service You quickened me the fact that IT IS NOT MY FAITH at all under any circumstance of my life but it is ONLY YOUR FAITHFULNESS that avails any of us to be and to do whatever we are or do in this world.
I will keep on obeying Your instructions to write and pass on to all the ones that You set in my path all of these words in the journal of my life in Your Presence no matter what I see or hear from all sides in the natural sense. So it is, because YOU have empowered me to do so!
There are many things in the Scriptures that, in the past would leave me perplex! But now You have opened my eyes to see and connect with Your Spirit in all of Your written words!
For instance, King David set up Bersheva’s husband at the front lines for the husband to get killed so he could have his wife, Bersheva.
So he committed murder & adultery. It seems to me that King David sinned against men. But in Psalms 51, King David confesses,
Psalms 51:1-19 Have mercy upon me, O my Master—my Beloved Yahuwah/Yahushua, according to Your steadfast love; according to the multitude of Your tender mercy and loving-kindness blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly and repeatedly from my iniquity and guilt and cleanse me and make me wholly pure from my sin!
For I am conscious of my transgressions and I acknowledge them; my sin is ever before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned and done that which is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified in Your sentence and faultless in Your judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in a state of iniquity; my mother was sinful who conceived me and I too am sinful. Behold, You desire truth in the inner being; make me therefore to know wisdom in my inmost heart. Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall in reality be whiter than snow.
Make me to hear joy and gladness and be satisfied; let the bones which You have broken rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my guilt and iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O my Master—my Beloved Yahuwah/ Yahushua, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me. Cast me not away from Your Presence and take not Your Set Apart Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your deliverance and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Then will I teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted and return to You. Deliver me from blood-guiltiness and death, O my Master—my Beloved Yahuwah/Yahushua, the Almighty of my deliverance, and my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness—Your rightness and Your justice.
O my Master—my Beloved Yahuwah/Yahushua, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise. For You delight not in sacrifice, or else would I give it; You find no pleasure in burnt offering.
My sacrifice, the sacrifice acceptable to You O my Master—my Beloved Yahuwah/ Yahushua is a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart broken down with sorrow for sin and humbly and thoroughly penitent, such, O my Master—my Beloved Yahuwah/Yahushua, You will not despise.
Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Then will You delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, justice, and right, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering; then bullocks will be offered upon Your altar.
I now see and understand—the whole issue of our doings is first of all between You and each one of us individually!—The first and most important command! I also see that, most of my life I strived, along with all of my peers, to keep the second command ahead of the first! WOW!

A capital letters WOW! Is most appropriate at this very moment! Why? Why not? This is a major revelation to me—a biggie!
I have seen this before and I have even written about it! I have even illustrated my write up with a graphic, but, at this moment? Your hand has seared this fact within my being to remain there for eternity!
O but what a 7th day of rest this is! Really and totally finding me sitting still and experiencing Your deliverance from all doubtful predicaments of my daily existence! WOW! WOW! WOW!
From His Presence let my voice resound in the waves of the Internet and in the books by yours truly from one end of the earth to the other! thia/Basilia—Webmaster/Author/ Publisher
