  • The Ultimate High

    I was watching a video of people watching jets breaking the sound barrier. Some pilots were interviewed and they said the ultimate high is breaking the sound barrier in a jet.

    I have heard many others state their opinion of the ultimate high. I feel pity for them all. For none has come close to knowing the ultimate high, or ultimate joy.

    Some get excited at meeting a movie star, who may be a nobody in reality. Others get exited at meeting the POTUS. But he is only the leader of this spec of land, called the US on this spec of a rock that orbits this dwarf star we call the Sun. The solar system is but a spec in our galaxy and our galaxy is but a spec in this universe that is so vast.

    But even if the POTUS would speak to you, does he know you by name ? Does he know when you awake and know your every thought and action ?

    Many years ago The Lord Jesus spoke this to me when I was thinking I must be of no value to His Kingdom:

    Fortitude

    Through a multitude of tests, you will learn courage. It matters not the price you pay, but at any cost you must learn strength of character and the fortitude to endure. I would build your resources until you are able to carry unusually heavy loads and withstand intense pressures.

    You will become an ambassador of the Kingdom of Heaven that I can assign critical missions, confident that you are equipped to fulfill them.

    It will be in vain if you anticipate resting in a comfortable place. Zion is already filled with those who are at ease. No, you will find yourself in a place of training and discipline, so when the moments of crisis come you will not become fainthearted, and you will not be the victim of unwonted fear.

    Trust My instruction in all of this as you have in various past experiences. I am faithful and loving, and I am doing this so that you can meet future days and not be found wanting.


    Now this was not what I wanted to hear. Who wants to hear that their life is going to be very difficult and not comfortable.

    1 Peter 1: 5-8
    For this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self control, to self control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound , you will be neither barren or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.


    BUT I was filled with much joy. It was the ultimate high. Why was I filled with joy to hear that my life would be very difficult ?

    Because The Creator of everything that exists had spoken to me. He had not only spoken, but told me that He had a detailed plan for my life. Think of it, the Creator of everything did this for me.

    He not only spoke to me, He knew me and planned for my life. The Creator of everything did all that for me.

    The ultimate high is for The Creator to speak to you and to know you and to tell you He has a plan for your life.

    What could be greater than that ?

    Abraham had these same kind of experiences with The Lord. When The Lord spoke to him or appeared to him, Abraham built an altar at that place so he would not forget that it took place, or where it took place.

    Genesis 12 New International Version (NIV)

    The Call of Abram

    12 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

    2 “I will make you into a great nation,
    and I will bless you;
    I will make your name great,
    and you will be a blessing.
    3 I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
    and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.”

    4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. 5 He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.

    6 Abram traveled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. 7 The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.

    8 From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.

    9 Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.

    The Lord spoke to Abraham when he was in Ur because The Lord lived in Salem (later Jerusalem)

    So The Lord called Abraham to travel to be near Salem, where The Lord lived ( That is why Jerusalem is called the city of God)

    When Abraham got to the land where The Lord lived, The Lord APPEARED to him.

    The Lord called Himself Melchizedek ( which is Hebrew for The King of Righteousness)
