Myth 2: "truth" in this world isbased on the quality or state of being true... verity, sincerity, candor, honesty What is true, according to fact or reality. We are destined to let others, even other believers, become the authors of our story. Our story as believers or non-believers becomes, at best 2nd hand, 3rd hand, 4th hand, etc... You may try to be the author but usually it is others' influence that moves our hand. in this case of temporal truth, there may be eternal consequences no matter how good your argument is.
Jesus is Truth.
When we are in personal Communion with Him, it is a first hand encounter with His Fire, His love, His passion for us.
His love is so powerful we just lay down in His green pastures of His grace and He writes the story.
We become like a pen in His hand where the paper is the bread and the wine is the ink. He shares His life as the only eternal Truth and His love as the only power of the universe.
It's where the veil of the temporal realities of this life are torn down or parted like the curtains on a stage to reveal the eternal reality of what for some of us will be our eternal destiny!
Isaiah 61:1b-6 The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me! He has sent me to bind up the broken -hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. 5 Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards. 6 And you will be called priests of the Lord,you will be named ministers of our God.
In Communion the Lord told Camille He had oceans and oceans of love for her and that's what brings us into Communion with Him.
Truth 2: "The Truth" in eternity is based on a first-hand, faith relationship in Communion with Jesus Christ.
When it comes to eternal life, the question should be Who is Truth and not What is Truth? Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life.
In Communion we individually encounter The CommunionFire of Jesus love. He loves us first. He is always there. He is not hiding and can't wait to share His love and life with us.
In Communion it is in "knowing The Truth who is Jesus" that sets us free!
True Story "CommunionFire" on the Beach on Mother's Day, 2016!
Faithful to daily Communion and understanding CommunionFire, our dear friend and neighbor, Mary, was having Communion on the beach with us on Mother's Day under the Surfside Pier. The discussion before Communion was about how two Mother's lives were changed by the power of God through miraculous pregnancies and the mercy of God.
You see, when another Mary, Jesus' Mother and her cousin, Elizabeth, John the Baptist's Mother got together history was rewritten in their mutual prophecies to one another.
Prophecies? Yes. from Gabriel, Elizabeth - Mother of John the Baptist, Mary - Mother of Jesus, Zachary, Simeon and Anna! Why Mary's pregnancy was such a powerful demonstration of John 3:16! Why Mary was 'full of grace' and the favor of God as the Mother of the Divine Mercy! How God's mercy chose someone who was a lowly handmaiden to give birth to the King of heaven. Elizabeth was too old to have children and was grieved that she was barren. Then there were many miracles that took place and she was six months pregnant. That was when Mary, Jesus' Mother, was visited in Luke 1:28 by the ArchAngel Gabriel, who came to her saying,
"Hail, (Mary), full of grace, The Lord is with you: blessed are you among women... You will give birth to the Son of God." Luke 1:26-38.
She was a virgin and was going to conceive, by the power of the Holy Spirit, a baby Son off God in human form and call His name Jesus!
We then followed with discussions about the prophecies of Zachary (Zacharias), John's Dad and of Simeon and Anna. (1 Samuel 2:1-11, Luke 1:39-80 and Luke 2.:1-38, Isaiah 7:10-16, 61:1-11, Micah 5)
A most remarkable dialog and the power of the Lord was with us.
Then We Had Communion... on the beach. It was just the three of us and Jesus and all of heaven it seemed like!
In the Communion our friend Mary had great sadness.
When we were finished Communion Mary was crying. Camille said, "Aw Mary, you okay?"
Mary said that she was grieving that she never had children.
Then, when she had the bread, the flesh of the Lord, He said to her, personally, "Mary, you've been mother to many children!"
Then in the wine, the Blood of the Lord, He said, "You are greatly loved!"
Mary smiled with great joy through her tears because today, Jesus revealed Himself to her as Truth that set her free from years of sorrow. He became the oil of gladness, the oil of healing to her personally. She "knows The Truth and He set her free!"
