Traffic Cop, 16MAR

“The communion of saints in heaven and earth”…. my pastor was teaching confirmation class as I sang thru the hallway on the way to the copier machine, the praise band was waiting for me and I had very limited limited time to chat, I wished I could have been in ten places at once… luckily the spirit quickly packed a seed into my ears so that it could sprout later… “the communion of saints in heaven and earth”… I can see her hands stretching to signify those places as she was urging the answers to flow out of our quiet, very quiet, confirmation kids…

I could and did fill in the blank space of sound… Jesus connects heaven and earth… and I scurried off back to band… that seed placed in my ear now sprouts, after a good night sleep, and I can now let the spirit flow back out thru writing… we can all allow the spirit to weave thru the convolutions of our brain traffic. We can bear His fruit by allowing His spirit sprouting.

Jesus brings the saints of heaven and earth together – thru communion – commonality – conduit ….Traffic Cop…

Yes, Traffic Cop – Jesus is the traffic cop – listen for His signal – see and hear the spirit flow – Heaven and Earth together thru communion – His beckoning to us that it is safe to cross the intersection – His reckoning to those who pass to heaven – we all await His instructions.

Jesus is the Traffic Cop…

“We are all saints”,  that was my pastor’s take home message… and we often fail to understand that due to the semantics of language, and being down on ourselves, but we ARE all saints by virtue of Jesus, by victory of Jesus’s resurrection over death… (if I could have lingered at class or anywhere yesterday, I would have,  but I felt swept by the crowds of life…)

Now, don’t we ALL get swept by the crowds? – hard to hear any instructions huh?… we are yapping and fail to listen – sometimes Jesus needs to blow that whistle… Jesus helps us discern the spirit of truth vs the spirit of error… His whistle works both ways – hear the warning, see the way…

Worship in Spirit and in Truth… (LISTEN…)

Blowing the whistle, Jesus surely gets our attention, our closed ears open to the Holy Spirit flow – we move – we can commune and cross…. gee, cross – how did that verbiage translation sneak in there?… because of Jesus’ cross we can now cross safely to heaven… Jesus thru human death on a cross, crosses all of us over with Easter’s Resurrection…

Safe… saints on their way… thanks traffic cop Jesus… Can you see His hands? See His arms stretched out WIDE… thanks Jesus… we are safe thus far… amazing grace…

Safe travels all…

Happy Easter EVERYDAY…

AMEN

1 John 4 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spiritof truth and the spirit of falsehood.
