Isaiah 50:4-6: The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary; he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.  The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair; I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

   There was a lady whose name was Grace.  She lived and died, but while she was living, she reported an open-eyed vision of Christ that still graces the lives of so many.  Following is that report!

   I saw Jesus in his Father’s carpentry shop.  He was putting away his tools.  He was getting ready to step into his calling.  He said to me, “come here”.  When I obeyed, I stepped into Him, and I became as large as the universe and as small as the tiniest cell in his body.  Again, He spoke, “I am going to teach you how I learned who I am.”

   It was an amazing moment as he continued, “I meditated the scriptures and who I am in them.  One night I was meditating Isaiah 50:4-6.  I heard in my awakened ear, “You, you’re that one.”  Yes, I was the one who would offer my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair.  I would not hide my face from shame and spitting.”

   He continued: “I was meditating Psalms 119:97: Oh, how love I thy law!  It is my meditation all the day long.  Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.  I have more understanding than all my teachers; for thy testimonies are my meditation.  I understand more than the ancients because I keep thy precepts.  I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.  I have not departed from thy judgments; for thou hast taught me.  How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey in my mouth!  Through thy precepts I get understanding therefore I hate every false way.  Again, I heard in my awakened ear,” “You, you’re that one.”

   “You see Grace, many have thought that the scriptures say nothing about my life from the time I appeared at the temple when I was 12 until I was 30.  But, if you look carefully, you will see me all over the Old Testament recordings that write about who I am and what I was doing.   For I studied the scriptures and learned who I was in them.”

   Then He said to me, “Go and do likewise.”  And the vision ended.

   So, how important is the written word?  I’ll let you answer that!

  1. From one disciple to another …..

    Beauty ….

    I’ve always thought on the Lord. Through dark times and the great times. He is my closest friend, my father and my comforter. I always feel that the manna He feeds me daily is for growth and for others whose ‘ears are awaken.’

    The Lord GOD has given Me the tongue of discipleship, to sustain the weary with a word. He awakens Me morning by morning; He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple. The Lord GOD has opened My ears, and I have not been rebellious, nor have I turned back. Isaiah 50:4,5

    Bless Father for every day my eye lids open to behold the day I know He has given me, another morning to listen to His wisdom.

    It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to search it out. Proverbs 25:2

    It is the Word of life that has come to make His called out kings and priests unto the Father. So as kings it is our glory to listen to the wisdom of our Father! Now the word ‘search’ sort of places the doing on the searcher. But the word search should be “to see into or through”

    In other words we can read it this way “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to see into it. Proverbs 25:2

    The Apostle Paul knew this by the Father when he penned “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Cor 3:18

    YES, For we must see it is Father who gives the “tongue of discipleship.’ It is the Father who “awakens Me morning by morning.” It also is the Father who awakens “My ear to listen”” and “opens My ears to hear”.

    Daily during the summer I was blessed to hear the singing birds around us. Every morning right before the sun cracked the horizon of the sky the birds would start singing. It amazes me how these sweet little ones know just when to sing. It as if the maestro was the hand of the Father directing the birds to sing for another glorious day He has blessed us with.

    For me the awaking to His Word of life is a sweet song to my hEARt. My spirit sings back unto Him with the sweet Words He has placed in me … I will praise You with an upright heart when I learn Your righteous judgments.

    I would not know the way if He did not take me by the hand and guide me. After a while He lets go of the hand for He knows I am able to walk. As I walk the narrow path I find many times I stumble upon some rocks but I know in my hEARt the hands of a loving Father are there ready to steady me.

    I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to Him in His death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.

    Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize of God’s heavenly calling in Christ Jesus. All of us who are mature should embrace this point of view. And if you think differently about some issue, God will reveal this to you as well. Nevertheless, we must live up to what we have already attained. Philippians 3:10-16

  2. Yes and here is a confirmation scripture: John 5:39
    “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”
