God's Truth

Of the Ministering Spirit

     Now this was a most unusual day ...and I say this was during a normal day ...as I was driving towards a town to go to the mall ...where I might find some things I needed for repairs around the house... as I was driving ...whoa a young woman was jogging along the road ...and she was so dressed as that every eye might see her ...covered in thin spandex that no curve of her form was left hidden ...at this a voice spoke to me in a most unusual manner ...saying "Behold they let prostitutes run lose round about?" whoa, what... where did that come from? ...again "Behold they let prostitutes run lose round about?"
     Now stunned and stirred I could not seem to withhold answering back ...to which I said, "no that's just a young woman strutting her stuff" ...no answer... still I wondered where that voice came from?
     Now as I approached the mall did I see some children ...and again the voice came to me "where is the guard for these children?" what? What? ...yeesh here we go again, so I answered "no guard, see the baby sitter ...and besides that there are police." Again no answer ...now as I parked the car the voice came again "behold what is this swift chariot with no horses?" I kind a mused at the question but answered "this is a car there are no horses" yet still another question came "behold what is this window where no air passes through?" whoa, what ...oh "that's glass" ... even as I got out of the car and walked into the store did the voice come again say "look see these many chariots without horses"
     I picked up the things I needed and while I drove back to the house ...I thought, man this is strange ...this voice coming to me like that with all those questions ...and the way he talked and the questions asked ...seemed to be as one might think from someone of ancient times ...oh well...
     Now the voice didn't come back till later that evening ...when I was sitting alone in the living room of my house ...and he started again ..."behold what is that box?"..."What box I answered?"... "that box that looks upon the world, from which you can see places all over the earth" Oh whoo "that's the TV" I answered ...again "behold what is that box?"... "What box I answered?"... "that box that by which you can speak to you kindred all over the world" Oh "that's the phone" I answered ...again "behold what is that box?"... "What box I answered?"... "that box that plays for you the finest music of any in the world" Oh "that's the stereo" I answered ...and again "behold what is that large window through which passes no wind?" I answered again "that's glass...a window with glass in it" again the voice "laborest thou that you might be warm ?" no said I for we use gas" ... "so you chop no tree neither gather up wood?"... "no, it comes in a pipe underground that we might have heat".
     Now, I was sitting in a low chair in the sunken living room and the voice said, "I see that you have all manner of fine foods from all over the world" to this I said "it is brought to us and we get it at the store"...
     Now came the end of the questions as the ministering spirit revealed his true purpose...for he asked "what is this pond above your head?" ...whoa pond above my head? "Whoa you got me there" as I looked up ...nothing ...again "what is this pond above your head ...with fishes in it?"..still I didn't know what he was talking about ...again ... "what is this pond above your head...with fishes in it?"...now I looked around ...and laughed ...for yes across the room, up from the sunken living room was the aquarium ...Oh man "it's the aquarium" I said ...and again "that's glass that holds the water'... I was still laughing.
     I was still laughing....when next he said "why do you murmur and complain against God for the losing of your goods ...when Solomon never even dreamed of such devices as you still have left ..."Oh man I was in deep stuff ...for I had been bitter at the losing of everything I had worked for since I was 13 ...but now was I brought to the judgement of God and turned from all unthankfullness.
     Later and even more blessings came as I became thankful at the spoiling of my goods that I would not live in the pride of goods ...and know for a certainty that I lived not by my own works but only by the hand of God ...oh man am I thankful for the teachings of these matters to me ...and sorrowful that I had complained against God and Jesus as they were trying to help me to a better heart condition ....and peace and joy through only hoping in God and Jesus for the concerns of my life ...that even through this, my faith might be increased and my joy in God fulfilled....
     And I am not going to tell you it was easy ...but the going through it... open hearted ...brings many gifts by the Lords hand ...thank you Father and thank you Jesus....
