To exercise the power of the Almighty means to risk one’s life. To remain humble means one can exclaim after the fact, “Hey! I am still alive! One blow from that giant could have caused my last breath on these earthly grounds!”
What about rejecting self-exaltation. When the blows succeed and one did not perish, one is not to get any ideas of setting one’s self to do it over again. Shall one give way to such grandiose ideas? Phew!
So many have given way to such ideas. The result? None other than the predicament of the human kind now. For the human tendency is to follow the strong of the kind.
Me? Ha! So many times, I have risked my life and come up smelling like a rose. Do I go back to repeat the matter on my own? Perish the thought. I have a healthy fear of the Almighty. Should I act on my own at any time? The Almighty shall turn His head. He will abandon me to the wiles of my own carnal self in the control and dominion of Satan himself. I know. I tried it before.
Under such control & dominion, there is no peace or comfort to be found by the child of the Almighty. Regardless all the riches & fame or the lack of them, the child of the Almighty, cannot be satisfied.
Even so, as a rule, the child of the Almighty sets up to find carnal satisfaction—self-exaltation at the least provocation to do so. There is always all kinds of ways to find something resembling satisfaction but! For the real thing—genuine satisfaction? It is only found in the Almighty’s house—the home for His children.

Funny thing, in five days will end the eighth month since I moved into this apartment of my dreams. Number five. Number eight. WOW! The number eight presents a picture of newness and a fresh beginning. The Number Five – Grace and Preparation.

O my Father—O Father of mine, my trust & confidence are set on You. You see the taunts from the enemy. You see what is happening. Better yet, You are letting me know what is happening in the realm of the spiritual world in this region of the world. You are letting me witness the hold of Satan on these children of Yours.
It is a frightening thing to see. It is enough to make anyone run for cover. Even so, You have invested me with Your whole armor; for I am not fighting against flesh and blood. You saw all that transpired on this day. I stand now at attention. What am I to do next? Is it time for me to reach Ahmad? Or, should I wait? I’ll wait and see what You develop in the next few hours. I can no longer take any kind of chances. I wait on You.
In the matter of the Internet business and the monies You have promised to us, what am I to do next? I take it I am to continue writing & publishing?

I will now record the hand-written days in the previous apartment in a file saved as, A record of my last days in the previous apartment.

I have been recording those hand-written days. I did not hear from Ahmad. I now have a heater but, I can only turn it on for a short time. No matter, I am thankful for it. I will go to bed now and hope You give Your beloved some needed sleep.

Thanks for sleep my Father, O my Father—O Father of mine, thanks for Your Presence in my heart and in my life. I know I am not fighting against flesh & blood but! The fact remains, I am a weak human being. The flesh is weak but Your Spirit within my flesh is strong! Thus I have nothing to fear.
I no longer fear much less doubt but! I grieve along Your Spirit to witness the state & condition of Your children at large. Per the reactions of Your people I can tell only a few are earnestly connecting with Your Spirit within me.
For the most, to merit their acceptance and love one has to abide by their demands & conditions. They claim unconditional love yet, in the same breath they eject such demands & conditions. O my Father, O my Father—O Father of mine, only by the power of love within my being can I endure.
Even so, when I am face to face with any individual of Your children, I can literally see the eyes of Satan surface in their pupils as I mention the word ‘Satan’. That’s the moment I lose them. That’s the moment of Satan’s control over the individual child of Yours. What am I to do, O my Father—O Father of mine?
Pause. Reflect. O thiaBasilia—O child of My heart, how have I dealt with you? How did you come to your senses and return to My house? Was it not by the power of feeding on the bread of affliction? You left My house, the home of My nature within your being to satisfy your lust for the things of the world—the love & approval of mankind. What did you find? Only the travesty of human love.
The travesty of human love—the grotesque imitation of My love. What is the difference? How can you discern My love against human kind of love?
1. My love is conditional upon your obedience or disobedience.
2. The human kind of love is a conditional love posing as unconditional.
Why the grotesque imitation? Because a love portrayed as unconditional gives anyone the liberty to love without any restrains. That sounds extremely attractive to the human mind but! Such love entitles love for whatever pleases the carnal nature—ultimately to fulfill the lust of the flesh.
The result of such love means death to the First and most important of My commandments—the human declaration of self-sufficiency. The rejection of My Being along with life eternal.
Is that not enough reason for My Spirit within you to grieve, O thiaBasilia—O child of My heart? Regardless, the power of My love from on high is powerful enough to dispel all traces of the human love gripping My beloved children. Thus, the importance to sacrifice your life of comfort in this transitory world.
Soon, much sooner than anyone can imagine, I will return to you one hundred-fold the sacrificed comforts of your lower life now before the eminent return of My Beloved Son.
Father, O my Father—O Father of mine, am I recording a misinterpreting of Your words? Am I thinking Your promise to give me as much wisdom and riches as You gave to King Solomon is for now before the return of Yahushua? Am I recording only my wishful thinking and ambition to become rich & famous for my selfish gain?
Pause. Reflect. O thiaBasilia—O child of My heart, My words in the books of Matthew & Mark that the word ‘one hundred-fold’ trigger in your memory do not apply here. Instead the parabola of the Prodigal Son is what I have in mind for you. For you are My prodigal child. You had left My house in search for that volatile human love & approval.
Indeed, you found such love. You were comfortable if not satisfied. Still, you were not eating the pig’s food in a literal sense of the word. You were loved and you loved in return. So, what caused you to come to your senses and return to My house? Was it not the whirlwind of My confrontation?
After My confrontation, conviction and your repentance did I not wait a whole year before I called you back into My service? The same call as the call to My twelve disciples but, a different precedent. For once you returned to My house I could prepare and send you out to the same world you had been in vain searching for human love & approval. Why? What is the difference between My twelve disciples and you?
O thiaBasilia—O child of My heart, it is My unfathomable wisdom standing between your call and my disciples call. My ways are higher than your ways but, the human nature in you is always striving to supersede My wisdom. Therefore, your frustration with your human nature.
But I know you My child, O thiaBasilia—O child of My heart, I know you better than you know yourself. Thus, I let you in many secrets for you to proclaim, to effect the restoration of My children to the original intent of their creation.
I am delighted with your obedience at the cost of your sanity in the face of mankind. Yes, I will grant to you as much or even over the wisdom & riches I gave to King Solomon now before the return of My Beloved Son. Why? That the world may know this time I AM. I AM the ever existent One. I will never give My beloved children to Satan. I will soon restore not only My rebellious children but also My whole creation!
For that purpose, I need to equip both Ahmad & you with the means to avail in My plan of the restoration for My children in your midst. For I know both Ahmad & you. I know that you will carry on with My plan. I know all the wisdom & riches will not be wasted in your own self-exaltation and vainglory.
Thus, rejoice and be glad! O thiaBasilia—O child of My heart, rejoice and be glad for your redemption draws nigh despite the looks of the moment. Soon, very soon, My promise shall be your reality in the sight of man while I reign in your hearts forever!
His love in my heart remains, thiaBasilia.
