God, are you listening?
Then you already know what is on my mind huh?
Yes, I do.
Well, should I say it anyway then?
Go ahead; sometimes it helps to talk it out.
Well, I am just a little angry.
I know. Do you want to talk about it?
Well yes, I do. I want to know why it is that people hate me when I talk about Jesus.
You know that they do, you see how it is. I can say God this and God that, leaving you all ambiguous; I can say higher power and the great one and everything else all day long and everyone is happy with it. But when I say Jesus, it is like the bows and arrows come out.
So you feel like you are under attack huh?
Yes, I do.
What are you saying about Jesus when they get mad at you?
I am telling them what the Bible says, that he is the only way to get to you.
And what do they think?
They say that there are many ways to you and that in the end all of us will get there. They say that you have many sons and that Jesus is just one of them.
And why don't you believe them?
Because of what the Bible says, "That at the NAME of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord to the Glory of the Father."
Does the Bible say that everyone will go to heaven?
No, it says that Jesus will tell those who do not know him, those that don't believe that he died for them, to depart from him because he never knew them. But that's just it God. THEY DON'T BELIEVE THE BIBLE!
Ok, calm down Cynthia, calm down. That seems to really bother you. So that is the real issue here huh?
What do you mean?
Do you believe the Bible?
You know that I do, I eat it more than I eat the food for my body. It is how I get my spiritual food. It runs through my mind like the software on my computer.
Ah, so you do not believe that those are just words on a page; a 2000-year-old dusty book?
No, but that is what they are saying; that you have transcended that Book.
Why don't you believe that?
See God that's my problem here, everything that I have learned about you I have learned from your Word; like it says in the Psalms. "Your word have I hidden in my heart so that I will not sin against you." So I can't even talk about you without talking about the Bible. I believe that Jesus was the Word that became flesh. I am not able to separate the two. For me, Jesus and the Bible go hand in hand.
Cynthia, you know it takes faith to understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God. Not everyone can comprehend that the Word became flesh in the person of my Son Jesus; it is just too weird to them. But you know, and that is what is important.
But how can I make them believe by talking to them about a book that they think is nonsense?
Now see, that's not your job to make them believe in Jesus. No one comes to me except through Jesus and no man comes to Jesus except I draw him, and I draw them to Jesus by my Holy Spirit. Just keep speaking my Word to them; my Holy Spirit will do what I set out for Him to do. Remember Cynthia, my Words are Spirit and they are life.
Ok, but I still feel like I am under attack.
Well alright, but as you've just proven here tonight, you're more than ready to handle that.
Yes, remember the most vital part of your spiritual armor, the very thing that we have been talking about?
Oh yeah, "Ephesians 6:17 "and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God". I fight the attacks with the word.
That's right, but that does not mean that you attack those who are seeking me with the Word... I saw you do that today, you know?
Yeah, I know. I was mad.
I mean for you to use the Word on your own thoughts, to keep your heart right so that you can continue to love. Love is what will draw them. And you can still tell them about the Word, but make sure your heart is right, ok? Do you understand?
Yeah, I think so.
Yes, I do.
Ok, now get some sleep.
Ok. Goodnight God.
