Christian Author Writer After a while we all began the descent back to our present world, Abba Father wants us to keep our minds stayed upon Him, but He doesn't want us to be so heavenly minded that we become of no earthly value to Him. The unsaved and many balanced Christians will have no fellowship with a spook. So Poppa kissed the men and hugged the ladies, as I was about to wave goodbye to everyone the petite little Japanese lady that had brought an umbrella to cover me and the first to join me in our beautiful Holy Spirit experience that day, pulled me aside. I didn't know until then she spoke perfect English, she told me she prefers to communicate with God in her own language, after all He is the one that made her Japanese. This sweet lady was probably in her late sixties, and had been a Christian all her life, and Poppa fell in love with her. She kissed me and gave me a hug I shall never forget. Then she gave me a cross on a chain and told me to think of her when I got home, and in my private time with our Father.

That has been forty five years ago and I have never taken it from my neck. She told me, until that day she had had glimpses of God all her life, but today she had received a vision of Him in all His Glory and Holiness. She wanted to say it was because of me, but I made her see it was inevitable she come face to face with all the glory and holiness of heaven without any man!

Sometimes that happens to us. The truth of God comes into our lives in such a dramatic fashion that we can scarcely deny that we have been in His presence. Sometimes we catch a glimpse of Jesus when we are born-again, and then if we follow on to know Him He will make a way for us as individuals to receive the vision of His Grandeur and Holiness.

Poppa waved goodbye to everyone and told my driver I wanted him to follow the rainbow and lets find the end of it. He told me I was crazy, but since he worked by the hour he submitted to my wishes. There’s something special and hopeful about a rainbow....Can you say Amen?

Arlen and Harburg wrote a song back in the fifties, I like Ray Charles and Aretha's version best, they put soul into it!...These are the lyrics

Somewhere over the rainbow Way up high...There's a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow Skies are blue...And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true.
Someday I'll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far..Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops...Away above the chimney tops...That's where you'll find me.
Somewhere over the rainbow...Bluebirds fly....Birds fly over the rainbow...Why then, oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly...Beyond the rainbow...Why, oh why can't I?

One of my Grandfathers was an Irishman, and even though he was very strong Christian in his faith, I always kinda suspected he wasn't really convinced there were not at least a few Leprechauns around, even though he always denied it. If you're not Irish, and the most Irish thing you've ever done is eat Lucky Charms, you've heard about leprechauns. The thing everyone knows about leprechauns is they love gold. The thing everyone knows about gold is that in Irish tradition pots of it languish at the "end of the rainbow." At the end of every rainbow, guarded by a leprechaun, is a legendary "pot of gold." Sounds like easy pickings, no? Except for one teeny, tiny flaw in that equation no one has ever found the end of a rainbow. Ever try to follow a rainbow from one end to the other? The "end" always "moves," shifting onward, westward, eastward, somewhere. No one ever finds leprechaun gold, because no one can ever find the end of the rainbow. I am not sure if you did find it you would be able to take it away from the little fellow anyway. The worst whupping Poppa ever got was from a midget, but that is another story!

The rainbow is the divine, heavenly symbol that intentionally bonds itself to this world, both at its beginning and at its end. The driver and I never found the end of that rainbow. No matter which way we went, we seemed to always be in the middle of it. .My!My! How Poppa wanted to climb that Rainbow again, and stay there forever with the one that created it. Once one has an experience like that, one shall continue to go back for more.We can never be satisfied with anything less...The world will lose it's appeal...For truly His Train will fill your Temple!...Can I get a witness?

Rainbows are actually circular. They appear to be arches or half-circles only because their bottom halves are cut off by the world you stand upon. If you wish to see them in their full circular glory . .you need to view them from high above the ground, I witnessed it while crossing the Atlantic many times.” O dearly beloved I can hear Him saying to His children through the Holy Spirit..Come Up Higher and let Me reveal Myself to you, Let Me show you the mystery of it all. Those are technical truths about rainbows, but they do not explain the emotional lift we get from these wonders of nature...That’s why you can never find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow....."The rainbow has no end."...Let the Holy Spirit talk to you about that one!...What a message!...My! My! Poppa having to hold me-self down, I have my climbing boots on and I be wanting to preach the unsearchable, never ending riches of a loving God!...Somebody say Amen!

When I started writing this letter I asked Holy Spirit to help me write what He has given me, and then the flame of the fire fell, and the Latter Rain began to fill my cup... I sure would be beholding if someone could explain that to me!..How does the fire of God fall when it's raining "Latter Rain" blessing all over someone?...Wait! Wait!, I think I have the answer!...the fire is on the inside and the kind of rain that is falling covers the outside so we become engulfed and saturated in Holy Spirit...Or maybe the "Latter Rain" is keeping us balanced so we are not burned up, that we may be a witness of the Glory of God...Can you say Amen?

Even though we don't know where the end of the rainbow is, we do know the end of the "Overcomer." The fact is, even though we may know the "end," ...most of us don't consider the "middle" of this journey. We don't know the story that drives the plot to its glorious conclusion. I want to look at the heart of this divine drama...Lord, I've never moved a mountain and I guess I never will. All the faith that I could muster wouldn't move a small ant hill....Yet I'll tell you, Lord, I'm grateful for the joy of knowing Thee...and for all the mountain moving down through life You've done for me.
When I needed some help you lifted me from the depths of great despair...And when burdens, pain and sorrow have been more than I can bear, You have always been my courage to restore life's troubled sea, and to move these little mountains that have looked so big to me.

Many times when I've had problems and when bills I've had to pay, and the worries and the heartaches just kept mounting every day...Lord, I don't know how you did it. Can't explain the wheres or whys. All I know, I've seen these mountains turn to blessings in disguise. No, I've never moved a mountain, for my faith is far too small...Yet, I thank you, Lord of Heaven, you have always heard my call. And as long as there are mountains in my life, I'll have no fear, for the mountain-moving Jesus is my strength and always near.

Will someone come and go with me to the Fathers house?....continued

God Bless You
