'A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon'.

1 Kings 19:11-13 (KJV)
And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a 'still small voice'. And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?

Once upon a time I went to see my mother and father, when I arrived mom was sitting on the porch, and from the yard I heard dad, he was getting down to serious business, deep in prayer, deep in the Spirit. If I would have been a stranger, I would have thought this old Indian has lost it, he gotta be on drugs or he is spaced out in his mind...

I thought to myself, this is gonna be a good day, dad is about to give me some of his philosophy. You know, his views of the principles of underlying conduct, thought, things of the universe and how we should think so as to enjoy life....I kissed mom, and very quietly, eased into the house and there he was laying face down on the floor in his bedroom, he didn't hear me come in so I went and lay down beside him and silently started praising God for giving me such a Godly father....That's what a 'Real' Godfather is...Come on and give Poppa a witness!

When he came back to earth I said, Dad you have been to the throne already today haven't you? He said, Yep I was just saying my abc's, but you should have been here earlier..that was the best part...That's when He was talking to me, and I was doing the listening!..It was said about my father..His thoughts are slow..His words are few..and he never try's to glisten. But he is a joy to all his friends..."You should have heard him listen!"

He said, "Baby you and I live in the period of history where we have access to more information than ever before. We have so much information that it produces what has been called the "Paralysis of Analysis." T. S. Eliot wrote: "Where is the wisdom--we have lost in knowledge...Where is the knowledge--we have lost in information."... "Son..the beauty of our faith is that God gave us more than information..he gave us Himself...He gave us more than rules and outward appearances, He gave us more than the bible. He gave us a 'relationship' with him..."In Him you have been made complete". Col.2...And only he can satisfy our deepest longing and bring order to our inner man. In Jesus Christ God's word became flesh. He is alive!" "And Let me tell you something sonny boy, We don't have to hear it through the Grapevine"...

I gotta tell you my dad and I had a unique relationship, and I loved to play with him. So I said, "I haven't seen Him lately but when I do i'll give Him a big hug for ya dad!"..

I may as well poured gasoline on the fire!...Poppa always been bad about such...if you want to find out what someone really knows, there a few ways of doing it...1. disagree with everything they say...2. act like you don't have a clue of what they are talking about and let them show their ignorance...or in my fathers case I just agitated him and waited for the blast...He!He!...Come on and say Amen!

He said, when I was just a lad and soon after I was saved, I was sitting on the porch, and he and my mother heard me saying the alphabet sounding like our pastor when he is praying. So he came and asked what I was doing. He said my answer astounded him. He said, I told him.."I'm talking to God, but I can't think of the exact right words. So, I'm just saying all the letters. I told Him, I want to talk to You Jesus, but I don't know what to say. He told me He knows what I want to say, and He knows what I need, and He will put all the words together for me. All I have to do is talk to Him and keep my mind on His mind. I asked Him how many times does He want me to talk to Him, and how much time can He spend with me?"...

Dad asked, "So your telling me you heard the voice of God?...What did He tell you?..I said, I heard Him in my heart. He told me He wants me to talk with Him all the time, and then His Mind and my mind will be the same, All I gotta do is say my abc's...then be quite and 'listen'!...then be quite and 'Listen'!.. My father said, "That hit me like a ton of bricks son, and changed everything about my approach to God for the rest of my life." I'm talking bout sayin my abc's!...Out of the mouth of babes!....Somebody give me a witness!...

You see dear friend it's not only about asking God for stuff..it's about hearing Him!..Listening is not just passive hearing. It is an active participating experience it's when you pay genuine attention to what the other person is saying. My dad was Cajun-Cherokee and he told me God works on Indian time. I asked him what is that?..He said, "He has enough respect for your questions to go away and think about them before answering them." So if it takes a while to get your answer, just wait, He is sure to get back to you."

If you have been reading my stuff for very long you know that I don't agree with most of our Bible school 'Theologians' in that I don't believe Solomon was the Bridegroom in the Song of Songs. I will never accept that...The Bridegroom was the Shepard that the Shulamite had met before Solomon ever came along. Solomon was a type of the world, and did everything in his power to win her away from her true love by offering her all the glory and bells and whistles of the palace. And yes, she was held captive in that palace for a while...that sometimes happens to us dear friend...but if you are one of the called out ones, if you have ever tasted of the Lord and seen that He is good, sooner or later your love for the Master will bring you back...

What sustained her through all the flamboyant junk of Solomon's world was...she kept hearing the voice of her Shepard...She was Listening to Him, and for Him, and He was saying to her...

"Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the leopards...Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse; thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck...How fair is thy love, my sister, my spouse! how much better is thy love than wine! and the smell of thine ointments than all spices!...Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue; and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon....'A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed'....Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard, Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices:...A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon."

My!My!My!...That Shepard was telling her how special she is...Come on now, and preach with me for a little while!
If the Holy Spirit is not talking to you right now something is wrong. Read between the lines dear one. He is trying to tell you how much He loves you!..And what all you have within you....'A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed'...'A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon'.

Hold the phone!...Poppa be back in a minute, gotta stop and give Him a praise offering, and maybe do a little Holy Ghost Shuffle!

Down deep in my Spiritman, I can hear that Shulamite saying her abc's...then listening for His voice..Listening for His answer!..."You should have heard her Listen!"...Oh' I am sure the people all around her must have thought she was a Space Cadet... May have even went and told Solomon, Hey Bubba! you may want to reconsider this girl, she is not of this world....Can you say Amen!

Jesus likened the Holy Spirit to the wind in John 3:8...Listen to how she answered her Shepard...
Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits. Song of Songs 4:8-16

I know I must stop, but "Breaking up is so hard to Do"...Listen to me friends, the only thing that sustained that young woman was her ability and willingness to hear what no one else could hear. Her Shepard was calling to her, no one else! Don't expect any one to understand you...they can't...unless they are a soulmate!.Thank God for soulmates! On the day of pentecost the word said, "they were of one mind and one accord"...that's what a true soulmate is beloved.

Sometimes God's people stand on a whale and fish for minnows, they beg for bread while living in a wheat field!
In prayer we are looking for Christ's mind. We are not sure quite how to word our prayer. So we ask God to take our words, fit them and make them work. We ask him to edit our prayers by cutting out the unnecessary, making corrections, and adding the necessities. We ask God to take our mind and make it his. We ask the Holy Spirit to pray through us. And when we seek Him like that...Jesus assures us, we shall find...Somebody say Amen!

"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus":..Beloved I stopped by today to tell you, It's time the people of God stop looking for a pie in the sky..You are the Pie!... and Heaven is within you!..Ask your Shepard to Awaken what's already within you, Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits

Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life!


God Bless You
