Fountain of the Eye Part 2

attributed to GreenWhiteOrange

“But isn’t it good to place your soul in the world? Like we said earlier, the arts, the ideas, the inventions, isn’t that all from the soul’s of people?” Farrah asked.

“Yes you are right Farrah, but many people don’t know how to strategically place their soul out in the world for people to consume of, they allow their soul’s to be pulled from them in it’s infancy. It’s not good to put an infant child in the world to fend for itself, but a well trained adult can fend for itself.”

“Okay, but I still don’t see what this has to do with my dream,” Farrah said now anxious.

“Farrah, The Great All Mighty is calling you forth. He is giving you warning as to the nature of the beast. The beast is the system of this world, set-up an designed to place you in a hypnotic state and steal your life energy. Your life energy was given you by All Mighty to put forth His Kingdom in this land. This energy is very valuable and great. From it we get the arts, we get creativity, the sciences, inventions, philosophies, we get love, and kindness. This energy is stolen from people to help build a different kingdom. Very much diabolical and opposing to the Kingdom of Light. Many people believe that they are awake, but they are not. Whenever people allow their sensual nature to move unrestricted they are making the same mistake our first parents made. They step outside of the safety of themselves built perfect and suitable to accomplish their part of the construction and where they can receive all divine wisdom from the spring that swells forth, just to capture something that isn’t there. As our old mother said, “‘the wisdom of this world, cheated, outwitted, and deceived me.”’ Farrah, you are standing on the edge of wilderness, and you are sought to be tempted. There is a decision you need to make. You are thinking of venturing into the world because you feel as if you are wasting your life as a sheep herder. But I tell you Farrah, your life is saved. The Anointed One crushed the head of the wisdom of this world that deceived our father and mother, which He made a mockery of by making true wisdom as simple as believing,” the sage paused to gauge Farrah.

“Please continue,” Farrah said.

“You are seeing, but you have yet to desire. This is the meaning of your dream. You see fortunes being made, you see the young men disgracing themselves with strange women, you see people going about singing and dancing happy from strong drink, and you wonder about your life. But as the sage of this town, I urge you young man, the otherworldly pleasure you felt in your dream is only like a snake charmer of India playing his pungi who will seize you and steal from you. You have been called by All Mighty to stay awake, shake others, and awake them. But know young man, no one likes to be awakened from their sleep.” The old sage turned to pull something out of his wooded chest. What he pulled out was a purple cloth with golden fringes. Reaching in he partially slid out a scroll. “Here, I want you to take and read this. This will help you guard your soul.”

Farrah reached out as the sage dropped the scroll in his palms. Looking over it Farrah noticed an inscription on the scroll, “James, Brother of the Anointed One.” “Thank you sir, I will get this back to you as soon as possible,” Farrah said thankfully.

“No Farrah, it is okay, keep it. I rewrite the scrolls as often as possible and I only give them to those whom I’m prompted to. You are special Farrah” the old sage said, “keep your eyes on Him, delight in Him, desire more of Him, and commune with Him, starting now.”

After this was said of the old sage, Farrah pushed the scroll back in the cloth and proceeded out of the tent. He headed off with a smile on his face knowing his fountain would pour forth everlasting water that quenches all thirst.

Don’t Stop For Air, Keep Praying

It’s reported that 55% of our communication is non-verbal. Other sources claim that non-verbal communication can take up as much as 93% of conversing. Whatever the true statistics may be, it can be said that there is an agreement in the fact that non-verbal communication takes up more of the communication process than that of verbal.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 of the Bible advises us to pray without ceasing. The New International Version reads, “Pray Continually.” The New Living Translations states, “Never stop praying.” In its original Greek origin, the word pray is, “proseúxomai,” which originates from two Greek words. Prós, meaning, “Towards, exchange” and euxomai, meaning, “to wish, pray.” Ceasing originates from adialeiptós meaning “to leave” (nothing left between, i.e. without any unnecessary interval (time-gap). This scripture literally equates to, “Exchanging our wishes with God without anything (time) left in between or incessantly.

So then, how can the Bible ask of something so difficult when we don’t have all day to pray? Or do we? The stats on communication above were given to help drive home the point of this scripture. Many of us pray verbally, whether in the morning or at night, and periodically throughout the day. But prayer doesn’t end there. Prayer really begins when we get up from prayer and go about our normal day. If communication has a greater percentage of non-verbal (action) than verbal (mere words) this is then how to pray without ceasing.

Here’s a quick example. If you’re asking God verbally for more money but aren’t taking steps to budget what you have, you really don’t want the money you’re asking for. You may think you do, but you don’t, because otherwise you would be wiser with what you have. This shows God that there is no true “need” because there is no true action deserving of the need.

Even Paul addressed the fact that God will supply all of our needs. What prompted him to say this was because of an act of grace towards him by others. Invariably, the Philippians’ belief (more than likely in what they spoke and taught) had a matching act of kindness and as a result of their non-verbal communication; God’s bountiful storehouse would be open to them. Our actions are speaking loud to God and this is what He hears.

So be sure that whatever you’re asking God for verbally, your actions is congruent. This is the way to ask, seek, and knock continually in which case God would love to answer.
