Word for July 11, 2022
I am The Way, The Truth and the Light! You cannot enter into the Kingdom by any other means. Though your enemy will seduce you into looking here and there, even at things I have created, good things, seeking to convince you that I am in it, you only need to look at Me. There is an onslaught of reasoning and seduction coming, even greater than is now, that is for the purpose of stirring up your own lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride. Remember my Blood that was shed for you and don’t follow any other way, and you will walk along the paths you were created to walk in.
Isaiah 44:16 Half of it he burns in the fire; over this half he eats meat, he roasts a roast, and is satisfied. He also warms himself and says, “Aha! I am warm, I have seen the fire.”
Aha! Is a discovery word. It is an illumination word. “Aha” is a “sight” word.
It is the sound of mysteries revealed; mysteries sought after.
“Aha” is a goal, but not an end goal. It is a gateway, however it is possible to draw conclusions and proclaim the discovery as absolute truth. This may be a reason why there are many conflicts in scientific studies.
I sat here yesterday meditating on the word “Aha”. (Its Hebrew word is he’ah, pronounced heh-awkh’). I have many icons on my computer desktop but for example I mention my Recycle Bin and my Documents folder.
When I look at my Recycle Bin (I think it used to be named Trash Bin), I see only an image of a trash can. But if I click on it to see further what is in there, I see all the files I had decided were not useful to me anymore, or maybe have never been.
My Documents folder is similar. When I just look at the icon, I only see a folder. I have to click on it to open it further and then “Aha!” there are documents opened up to me that I have saved for many reasons. It could be that I no longer need them, but for whatever reason, I decided to keep them. They are, or have been, or will be, useful information, so they are saved.
I had something in mind already when I clicked on the Recycle Bin. I wanted to see what I had discarded and no longer have use of. I had made a decision to put documents there because there was no need for them any longer, whether simply they served no more purpose or they never did and were harmful to my computer. Occasionally I may forget why I put it in the recycle bin, and for some reason I was looking for it again. When I find it, I may say “Aha!” and restore it to my documents folder (but there was a reason it went into the recycle bin in the first place. The reason for it being there, I may have forgotten, but I’m looking for something that seems to be missing in my documents folder so I look in my recycle bin.)
I had something in mind when I clicked on my Documents folder. I am looking for something. Upon finding it, I say “Aha” and then click on it to see the contents.
The “Aha” or discovery is a gateway to finding what we are already looking for.
Computers are modeled after our brains.
Think of each icon as either “The Sea of Forgetfulness” for the Recycle Bin, and “Truth” as the Documents Folder.
Before we click on either icon, there is a thought prompting us to click one of them. The enemy would love to recycle what the Lord has thrown into the Sea of Forgetfulness – all the data in it can not be used against you as long as you don’t click on it to bring it back up.
Our brains are created to continuously reconstruct truth and reality. One-third of our brain is engaged in vision. There are billions of neurons and trillions of synapses in our brain that are constantly working to reconstruct what we see. They are engaged in vision. Neuroscientists tell us that these neurons and synapses are creating in real time all the shapes, objects, colors and motions of all that we see. It feels like we are just taking a snapshot of an object in front of us. We don’t construct the entire world all at once, only what we need in the moment.
When we open our eyes, we see a Truth icon or a Sea of Forgetfulness icon that is an image of millions of tiny pixels. They are not actually folders, but images made of pixels. The images exists so we could know basically there is more beyond the image when it is clicked on.
Behind the Truth icon are the testimonies of all that the Lord has brought us through, all the revelatory illuminations of His word, especially the Blood of Christ was shed that we are forgiven, healed and made whole. Our sins are not counted against us and we will live eternally.
Behind the Sea of Forgetfulness icon is our shame, our guilt, our sins.
Every time we click on the Sea of Forgetfulness icon, our brains are reconstructing what truth looks like and making connections as to whether we still need it. Is it useful information? Forgetting that at one time, it was cast into the sea of forgetfulness for a reason, but not recalling why. All our brain wants to know is “is it useful information and for what purpose?”
The same with our Truth icon. Our brains are constantly reconstructing pathways to use the information we have already decided is good information, useful, what God has done in our lives. All the documents behind this icon are stored up to create the journey we are on and we are to speak or write or sing these truths often. They are stepping stones along the path we are on.
Discovery = growth, movement forward. Aha! It is the gateway that we enter through, which allow our brains to reconstruct the pathway we are to walk in.
We just need to stay away from the Sea of Forgetfulness icon. Every time we open it to see if we need that old data, our brains are finding ways to use that information again.
Your enemy wants your brain to reconstruct pathways to reuse old information about your sin, your abuse, your wounds, your past mistakes, who you may have hurt, who may have hurt you, in order for you to use this information again and again for HIS purposes, that you would be weakened.
“Aha! so THIS is why I am the way I am!”
“Aha! so that is why ……..”
instead of “Aha! The Lord has brought me out of darkness and into His marvelous light! I cannot fail!”
“Aha! The work He has begun He will be faithful to complete it!”
The more you look into and speak or review the Truth, the more your brain, with its billions of neurons and trillions of synapses, constructs the path you are to follow. It becomes the Light unto your path way. The more you review the data that was tossed, your brain seeks to use that information again.
And remember, all discoveries begin with your own desire to look beyond a veiled icon. If you are continually discovering things about others or yourself that brings you or another harm, it is because you are already looking in the wrong folder and clicking on the wrong icon.
Paul said “And when I came to you, brothers and sisters, I did not come as someone superior in speaking ability or wisdom, as I proclaimed to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3 I also was with you in weakness and fear, and in great trembling, 4 and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of mankind, but on the power of God.
Psalm 35:21 They opened their mouth wide against me;
They said, “Aha, aha! Our eyes have seen it!”
Psalm 35:25 Do not let them say in their heart, “Aha, our desire!”
Psalm 40: 15 May those be appalled because of their shame
Who say to me, “Aha, aha!”
Psalm 70:3 May those who say, “Aha, aha!” be turned back
Because of their shame.
Ezekiel 25:3 and say to the sons of Ammon, ‘Hear the word of the Lord God! This is what the Lord God says: “Because you said, ‘Aha!’ against My sanctuary when it was profaned, and against the land of Israel when it was made desolate, and against the house of Judah when they went into exile, therefore, behold, I am going to give you to the people of the east as a possession, and they will set up their encampments among you and make their dwellings among you; they will eat your fruit and drink your milk.
Ezekiel 26:2 Son of man, because Tyre has said in regard to Jerusalem, ‘Aha! The gateway of the peoples is broken; it has opened to me. I shall be filled, now that she is laid waste,’
The Lord does not want us looking at the Sea of Forgetfulness data. It is harmful to us. He will deal with the enemy but there is also a stern warning for people who use this data against a child of God. The shame and guilt intended to be used against Gods people will be used back upon them.
Ezekiel 36:2 This is what the Lord God says: “Since the enemy has spoken against you, ‘Aha!’ and, ‘The everlasting heights have become our possession.
therefore prophesy, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Because they made you desolate and swallowed you up on every side, so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations, and you are taken up by the lips of talkers and slandered by the people”— 4 therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God! Thus says the Lord Godto the mountains, the hills, the rivers, the valleys, the desolate wastes, and the cities that have been forsaken, which became plunder and mockery to the rest of the nations all around— 5 therefore thus says the Lord God: “Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom, who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with wholehearted joy and spiteful minds, in order to plunder its open country.” ’
6 “Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, and the valleys, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and My fury, because you have borne the shame of the nations.” 7 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their own shame. 8 But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come. 9 For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. 10 I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. 11 I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am the Lord. 12 Yes, I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel; they shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance; no more shall you bereave them of children.”
