Learning The Song

Word given in 2018

He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” (Psalm 25:9)

This is a word God has spoken to my heart about our inheritance in Jesus. This morning I was meditating on Psalms 104 and the part about his chambers set me to thinking. I think I’ll be camping out in this for awhile.

Psalms 104:

13 He waters the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

15 And wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthens man’s heart.

16 The trees of the Lord are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted.

I Love the revelation of Christ and his body in the earth here. The truths of this beautiful Psalm excite my heart. I noticed the part about “From His chambers” it flows; and I was reminded of this word I had heard long ago.

Revelation from Watchman Nee. (Copied from Living Streams Ministry) I had seen this about the intimacy of the bride in his chambers and it has really stuck with me over the years. The intimate “in His chambers” romance with the Divine Lover.

FELLOWSHIP (1:4)

Verse 4 continues, “The King hath brought me into his chambers.” After the maiden prays, we see her prayer being answered: “The King hath brought me into his chambers.” The “chambers” are the “secret place” (Psa. 91:1), which are the bedrooms. Unless we have very deep friendship with a person, we will not bring him into our chambers. Therefore, when the King brings her into the chambers, it signifies the beginning of fellowship and revelation. In the chambers she tastes of a fellowship that was previously unknown. But more than this, she sees something that she has not seen before.

The word “King” indicates that before we know the Lord as our Beloved, we must first know Him as our King. A life of consecration always comes before a life of love, and a satisfying experience always comes after an act of consecration. “The King hath brought me into his chambers.” She has previously known Him as her King. But now the King will show her the experience of the chambers.

Those who are with the maiden can now lift up their heads as their future unfolds before them. There is no limit to their future. Once the experience of the chambers begins, hope abounds in a life of love. They know that since God has begun the work, He will surely complete it (Phil. 1:6). Therefore, they say, “We will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine.” These are words for the future. Their present experience fills them with hope for the future (cf. Prov. 23:35 for an example of seeking associated with wine).

“The upright love thee” should be translated, “They love thee in uprightness.” This means that their love comes out of a good conscience (1 Tim. 1:5). (End of Watchman Nee word)…..

The revealing of the chambers relationship speaks of the chosen saints who have come to “KNOW” him. Their calling and election has been made sure. These will continue overcoming and thriving through hard persecutions because they have fully kept the ways of the Lord. They are those who have been set apart, as Watchman Nee called it. Consecration. They have no other interests. They serve and minister from the word of the Lord. They sing the songs of the Bridehood. These bridehood truths were taught by my Pastor Poppa Kay; in them he revealed that few would sing that song because there’s a high price to pay. I’m here to say that I’m glad to be one of them who has, and will. His love has sweetened my world.

These are just some personal heart thoughts about the process as we set our hearts on putting the songs of the bridehood into practice. We’re thrilled when the glorious wonders we’ve seen in his word begin to become a reality in our life walk. We know and we learn to walk in our own true identity then and nothing can interfere with it. Our romance with him is an all consuming fire in our hearts. Fiery trials come to turn us back but they cannot. Because we belong to him completely; now it’s not just a place we seek, it’s a place we live out of. Even if we’re set down in a land of strangers we have great grace to be confident in who we are in God. Through his grace we can do what delights his heart. In all situations he guides us in his right ways to act justly and to love mercy because his humbling hand rests on us. If we fail in any way he is there to help us to recover.

All who are chosen, you and I, are pioneers and pioneers go where God leads. His way is to keep us firmly fixed in him wherever we are and to keep us safe; to take us into new dimensions and places unknown. We live as delighted and fulfilled yielded vessels, captive to the hope of himself abiding within. We’ve given ourselves first to God and then to others according to the will of God. Created as safe houses being built by Holy Spirit; houses of prayer. The night seasons come but his glory surrounds and the morning star rises in our hearts. From deep in his rest we sing the song of all songs; written on our hearts and even in the severest trials they pour out. Our prayers become songs of praise that spring up out of grateful hearts. Secretly we walk where only Father understands us fully and we’ve learned to be content with that. We cling tightly to his saving hand always. And by his anointing we serve to enrich the hearts and lives of all who welcome those who come in the name of the Lord. With trusting, childlike innocence we yield to Him as He builds consistency within our hearts. And we apprehend all of his promises for our good and for generations to come after us. Wherever you and I are in the process now we will get to his desired haven by following the trail blazed by Holy Spirit. I’m deeply touched by the reality of the romance in the life with Jesus. In my personal experience I’ve discovered a deep glory beyond anything I’ve ever imagined. And I will never turn back. My instructions from the Lord in recent times have been “Do more demonstrating it than talking about it.” If we look closely at the virtuous lady in Proverbs 31 we will see that it’s a picture of demonstration. What she did because of her fear of the Lord. And I’ve discovered that in the demonstration of his glory we will not live to please men and we surely will suffer persecutions. However, we live in the glories of hope. If we can’t yet walk in the fullness of the virtuous lady we can keep practicing opening our mouth with wisdom and kindness. I believe the fulness of the grace will soon follow. And we will live full of joyous expectancy for the future.

Majesty, worship His majesty; unto Jesus is all honor and praise! And delight in the intimacy of his sweet love and friendship!

Ephesians 3:19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

Singing In Tune

God gave me two thoughts that wouldn’t let me go and I had to seek him to see how to blend them together. My hope is that the word will produce good fruit and new strengths in him

“Wave·length” and “Tuning fork”

  • Wave Length
  • the distance between successive crests of a wave, especially points in a sound wave or electromagnetic wave: “a range of wavelengths
  • a person’s ideas and way of thinking, especially as it affects their ability to communicate with others:

A range, a measure, a level. The frequency our ears are paying attention to. Good success in communication is hearing and speaking on the same wave length.

Awhile later, God spoke to me about tuning forks. I asked the Lord if this word about tuning forks relates to his wave lengths word. Yes.

Tuning Fork

  • a two-pronged steel device used by musicians, which vibrates when struck to give a note of specific pitch.
  • Tuning fork tests are performed in order to subjectively assess a person’s hearing acuity

A tuning fork listens to the sound the instrument makes and adjusts it. Fine tuning and adjustment to the right tone and pitch.

He spoke to me about Sounds, Tones. Voices, and Ears.

The key to walking in active kingdom faith is to tune into the heart of the Lord and to communicate one on one with him. The delight of the Father’s heart. God is faithful to keep what we have committed to him.

We’re wise if we keep cultivating tender hearts set on truth and mercy. I know that God wrote an eternal symphony for the Bride of Christ and I believe that Father God is tuning up his instruments. Being chosen to go forth and bear kingdom fruit we hear and follow the great Shepherd of the sheep as he leads by the integrity of his heart and the skillfulness of his hands. Our ears are fine tuned to his voice as he instructs us in the right way to go.

Isaiah 32:8

I will instruct you in the way to go, I will counsel you with my loving eye upon you.

God calls us on to maturity. Lessons learned and applied help us to grow up.

In his processes he fine tunes our ears. The ears feed the heart. Hear what the spirit is saying to the churches. With adoring praise and worship guard your heart for out of it flow all of the issues of life. Be holy. Be pure and transparent. Faith unfeigned, spontaneous grace and truth. Sound wisdom. Redemptive.

It’s a long journey but Holy Spirit leads with gentle instruction and still water peace. Walking in the spirit we live up above the emotional, surface, thought realm, tuned into the thoughts of the spirit. All the noise and chatter is tuned out. We are among his great cloud of witnesses and the testimony out of our mouths must be spoken with humility and accuracy.

His perfect will is to perfect all that concerns us.

Ephesians 3:16
May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]

1 John 5:4

For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory, even our faith

Jesus builds his church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. His intention is to gather us and build the One New Man, seeking and speaking with one heart and one voice, set with passion to walk in the eternal purposes of the Father. Kingdom unity is where we’re singing the same song in the right key. There’s power in the word.

Isaiah 55:11

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

We’re learning in the midst of great crisis while being tuned into God so that we can maintain a right balance, compassion and intercession, but in right alignment with Holy Spirit faith and joy. Up above the cares of his life so that our prayers and intercessions are effective.

The fruitful works of the spirit grow in us as we live in the divine romance, following the heart of our King. Truth and mercy kiss one another. Jesus said we’re blessed because we hear things that many have desired to but cannot. Gratitude.

I’m learning from an old hymn God brought to my attention. Holy Spirit breathes on his Beloved.

O God, Thy world is sweet with prayer;
The breath of Christ is in the air;
We rise on Thy free Spirit’s wings,
And every thought within us sings.

Thou art our Morning and our Sun,
Our work is glad, in Thee begun;
Our foot worn path is fresh with dew,
For Thou createst all things new.

O God, within us and above,
Close to us in the Christ we love,
Through Him, our only Guide and Way,
May heavenly life be ours today!

Holy Spirit is the breath of Christ. Spirit winds from the north, south, east and west bring life to hearing ears in the earth. Through long process the army of the Lord rises up. For those who fear his name the son of righteousness rises with healing in his wings. We are his Beloved. We are laborers in his harvest.

This is the kind of faith we’re going to need to be effective for God in the times we live in. Secret place delights in his love will bring public place blessing for the profit of many. If we take a good look around us we’ll see that this crisis is causing people to turn to God in prayer like never before. The breath of Christ is in the air; God has shown us his glory all around the world. We follow the ways of peace and we rest in his great love. Synchronized. One heart, one mind. He IS our peace in any time of trouble. With strong resolve and graced beatitude attitudes we will excel.

Zechariah 4:

The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
