Keeper Of The Seed

Hiding a Treasure

"Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?   14. Thus saith the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

15 I am the Lord, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King."

"And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth.   7. And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.   8. And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.

9. Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.   10. Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?   11. And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base."

The moment when humanity
Is overcome by majesty
When grace is ushered in for good
And all our scars are understood
When mercy takes it rightful place
And these questions fade away
When in weakness we must bow
And hear you say “it’s over now”

“It’s in there”, said the angel who had been a man; “it’s in the book”.

It has always been in the book.

If you can’t trust the word, you can’t trust the book.  If you can’t trust the book, can you trust the author?  The hypocrites say “we use two books”.  They serve two masters.  They can’t understand the script and they can’t change the script so they write over it.  They bury the meaning under interpretation and the truth under fear.

We look for heaven in the clouds, yet Luke wrote that Jesus told us the kingdom shall not come with observation for it is within you.  And when they tell you the son of man is here, or he is there, or he is before you; go not after them.  They shall desire to see one of the days of the son of man and they shall not see it.  He will come like lightning that lights up one part of the heaven to the other part of heaven.

It is written “every eye shall see him”; and John wrote that even they that pierced him.  Paul then wrote to the Hebrews saying “unto them that look for him shall he appear a second time, without sin unto salvation”.  How is it to be then?

How is it explained when he who would devour the soul of the man child find himself cast to the earth out of heaven forevermore, if the kingdom is within?  What war was between Michael and the dragon?  Remember where Armageddon is taking place; behind the curtain, not before it.

The Holy One is sent to Babylon for our sakes; the women with the wings of a stork take the ephah to the land of Shinar to build it a house and establish it on her base.  The flying roll is placed in the house of the thief and he who swears falsely by His name.  It will consume it with the stones and the timbers thereof; written in the book of Zechariah.

As Ezekiel is told, the Lord will disperse them among the heathen and consume the filthiness out of them.   The prophet Micah wrote of the scattered of Israel among the Gentiles, in the midst of many people.  Be very assured, God knows where His children are; every single, gold-beset stone. 

Paul wrote the church at Corinth that which is sown is not the body, but the bare grain.  Amos foretold that not one grain will fall to the earth when Israel is sifted.

Do you know what it is to be “quickened”?  What will become of the house?

"It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work baby what did you except
Gonna burst into flame

My house S'out of the ordinary
That's might Don't want to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nuthin' yet
Everything's stuck together
I don't know what you expect starring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire"
Talking Heads - Lyrics Burning Down The House

"I remember way back then when
Everything was true and when
We would have such a very good time
Such a fine time
Such a happy time
And I remember how we'd play
Simply waste the day away
Then we'd say
Nothing would come between us
Two dreamers

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep
He can't hang around

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our
Our house, was our castle and our keep"
Madness, Lyrics "Our House"

Entangled among those who conspire, seeking to free those finally noticing their bonds we see them flail and struggle in panic.  Their eyes adjust to genuine light.  They look around, they SEE finally those who have already been freed.  They see the futile, vain web which ensnared them and the open jaws of those who thought they were kings as they held the dissolving strands in their hands.

Let them fumble, let them roll
Greater things we will behold

Stones of gold survive the heat
Where they line the narrow street

Stronger are the hallowed halls
Breaches gone now solid walls

Safely kept from those of greed
precious grain, protected seed

In the house the soul will keep
Entrust the language underneath

As the nights draw to a close
When the witnesses arose

Song of David then they sing
And Salvation Christ our King
Will bring

Word of God . . . truth, in my heart.  Grace is in the fabric of your Word.  The wondrous thing You are going to do and the incredible patience in stretching the delicate weave of time to perfectly fulfill your will.

So soon we look to the end of the suffering of the sons of men let us who remain bear some of the burden.  Forgive my tears and my frustrations because my heart is true even as I struggle.  Any of it is worth it to be closer to You.  Let not the waters surround this house but if I have to tread the waters for a time, please give me the strength to endure it.  I cannot wait to be with you, I cannot wait . . .

For those whom are frightened, please give them also Your strength.  Give them peace and Your spirit in knowing they are not forgotten and that You are coming.  Open their eyes to the veneer of deceit that has been spread upon this earth.  Show them a pure and cleansing love.  Let them feel in their hearts Lord, what you have given me.  Let them feel your son; let them feel that love.  It is that love that saved me, and it is that love that will glorify You.

Your children need you.  Let their eyes be opened soon . . .

Word of God . . . Speak
