Celestial Marriage

Conversations with God #15 – Friends Forever

Lord, when I come to you, I still find that I bring a little guilt, and doubt, and even fear to the conversation. Yes, I know. And I’m still seeking validation – like, “Am I ok?  Do you still love me?” And that’s kind of ok, but it’s so unnecessary.  I’m still waiting for you […]

Oneness

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they […]

There Will be Peace

There will be peace. A profound, all consuming, fulfilling-of-all-hope type of peace.  Peace like the lion lying with the lamb; the child playing on the cockatrice’s den; because “This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations”. Isaiah 14:26 His hand is stretched out still because He is, and because […]

Be Still…and Know That I am God

Wow – to come out of that experience and try to put it into words….God help me, please. Be still, and know that I am God.  Be still, and know that I am God.  Be still and know that I am God.  Repeated, repeated, repeated.  Over and over and over.  Again and again and again. […]

Conversations with God # 12 – “Two Eternal Marriages”

This post is perhaps the most important thing I have ever written, or, as in this case, recorded.  I cannot even share it without ensuring that you, the reader, understand the following things: I have been trying for years to understand the gospel in real life, attempting to understand the real meaning of the metaphors […]

What if Jesus said, “No”?

This morning I prepared myself for a long communion with the Lord.  I had plenty of time and a good night’s sleep.  I prepared the sacrament (bread and wine – actually, cracker and juice), I offered up prayers for friends, family, etc.  All was as it should be.  Then, I prepared to settle in and […]

To Know God…

To know God is to know yourself. I have written before about my experience 20+ years ago in which I promised God that I would “seek to know Him”, and He responded in spectacular fashion, “Game on!” I highly doubt that I would be writing this right now if I weren’t continuing to keep my […]

All that Matters

This being that I talk to; commune with every morning…this Christ – it’s so hard sometimes to get past all the things that are rattling around in my mind, things that are happening in my life; challenges, fears, joys.  I’ve learned to consider it like an update, a “This is what’s going on with me; […]

Conversations with God #8 – Of Eternal Life

“Lord, I promised I would seek to know you.  I’ve tried really hard to keep that promise.  I’ve learned that I can’t really know you if that knowledge is filtered through the vision or knowledge of others, so I am seeking to come directly to you.  So, Lord, please tell me…who are you…REALLY??!!” The response […]

The Essence of the Divine

January 20, 2018: 1 a.m. I had been asleep for about an hour when I was awakened by a dream that was breathtaking in its carnality. The physical excitement, the adrenaline, the temptation lingered way too long. It was shocking to me, and it frankly filled me with fear and dread. I began to ask […]
