Prayer Apartheid (Part Two)

January 6, 2014

Do you wish to honour the body of Christ? Do not ignore him when he is naked. Do not pay him homage in the temple clad in silk, only then to neglect him outside where he is cold and ill-clad. He who said: “This is my body” is the same who said: “You saw me hungry and you gave me no food”, and “Whatever you did to the least of my brothers you did also to me”… What good is it if the Eucharistic table is overloaded with golden chalices when your brother is dying of hunger? Start by satisfying his hunger and then with what is left you may adorn the altar as well.  Agl. John Chrysostom

100_0740   The Prophets chosen by God were not fully aware in what they were writing. This is not a criticism, and that they were not in full attire carries no blame. The Prophets remain. They are of like mind in One Body, but they are brought down for specific Work within Prophesy, which is the Evolution of God and man. Prophesy is ongoing, a cataclysmic partnership of perpetual relevance. Cataclysmic because the necessity for Truth and Purpose to reignite is monumental in sequence and scale, and relevant because it is within arbitrary conditions, yet socially applicable. There is a high order at work, and the Prophet is wielded within this phenomenon. Prophets chosen by God within this framework are fallible only in their condition of use, and can demonstrate a myriad of gifts and annoyances to perpetrate movement. This Station is unique, and differs from mankind and humankind in positioning. It’s more a what than a who. This is because the Prophet is used as an instrument to align that higher Methodology of Purpose with Truth in Love. The Prophet is Lover to the stream in which he-she emanates and collides.

Why have I chosen to write on the Prophet? If having read Part One, you are aware that it ended with a question. The answer to that question is found within the Work of the Prophet, for [this] harbors the necessary persuasion and direction for Truth. Man may believe that the Prophet ended with John (the Baptist) or Jesus, if he believes He served within this Domain, but the reality of [this] stands alone, and consequential, with and within performance, and garners trust based on fruit in due Season. 

100_0067   How this Pretext invites within the platitude of Prayer depends on the shareholder. The shareholder is the installing magnet to bring about a return of one to Father (Parable of the Lost Son) through a paradoxical outpouring understood as Preservation Trust. But first, allow me to share in how the medium works. Mary, mother of Jesus, served as Prophet in her day. She was inherently connected from “birth”, through birth, to Become One within this Body much like Jesus was within Her. Her Station was instrumental in giving birth to the Word, our Lord as Heaven and Earth (Spirit and Human). She rode (the donkey/colt is symbolic here both in Mary’s journey to give birth, and while Jesus rode into Bethlehem with a colt by his side carrying robes) the wave of adversity in her unique pregnancy, and let me just add that if anyone thinks this was just a poof and our Lady was Magnificat is deceiver to self. Mary’s condition was not an accepted practice in her day. She was looked upon by Her community as something illegal. Let me remind you, a Prophet is not accepted in his own country. Joseph, and angel, was used in this to assist in this epic Birth. The trio of Mother, Father and Child is the Spirit Epitaph of God as Trinitarian Gift. We see a similar Gift in Miriam, Aaron and Moses, except that Moses took the headline over his siblings for reasons which I won’t get into here, but I imagine it would make for an excellent course of study. Joseph remained in the Word and served as he was meant to. Mary went on to do the Lord’s bidding. After Jesus died, Mary and John, our Beloved, became Mother and Child to fill the role of [this]. Mary taught John in his youth, and John saw to Mary’s safety in her Presence. If you know your Scripture, John remained while his Spirit Brothers passed. Good questions at this point are: What did John become? And what was born from His worth? Angels are a fluid bunch.

100_0788   The Preservation Trust extant is the foundation or platform needed and used for the procuring of Spirit Gifts unto the Father. The Trust is paramount to the continuing metaphor of Light. Light is the visible reality of Truth. How does [it] manifest itself? The answer to this is through adversity. Light is visible in darkness, but we must begin to understand the darkness. We must begin to SEE in darkness, not as man sees, but as Lord asks us to HEAR …

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3.22

Hearing is with the Heart. Prayer is not only the vehicle on which we can learn to hear, which is also understood as gaining in Spiritual Understanding, it is also the method through which we are brought into Light. Light is of the Essence which harbors all things unto Him who is All (this takes us back to an earlier essay where I illustrate the peach and its seed).

Now, I want to address a highly controversial and sorely misinterpreted and misunderstood piece of Holy Scripture:

Matthew 15. Beginning 16 …

15. He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 

16. Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”

17. Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed [this] to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on [this] rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven … 

What is Jesus sharing here? First, Peter states Christ as the Son of the LIVING God. Jesus then tells Peter that he is blessed, and calls him SIMON BAR-JONAH, which is telling him that he has witnessed the Presence of the One in Whom He (Christ) is held. He hears the Word of God, which is a blessing, for in this hearing reigns Life (of the way, the truth and the life). When Jesus calls him Peter, He establishes him as a rock unto this Living God. In other words, He is telling him that he has been called into his ID. Now, when Jesus states on [this] rock I will build My church, He is saying that on this UNDERSTANDING–[this] that Peter HEARS–I (Christ, the Son of the Living God) will build HIS (My) Epitaph.
