To know the unknowable You

Posted by appolus on September 30, 2012

Despite the vastness of the universe, we know that the Lord holds it all in the hollow of His hand. Our minds simply cannot conceive of the vastness of our God. How can it be possible for mere humans to know God? And what is this ” knowing?” The Scriptures in Ephesians three are not saying that we can know about Him, it is saying that we can know Him and the fullness of Him. As I read Ephesian’s three I penned the song/poem below.  To know God is the most intimate of terms. The Scriptures tell us that Joseph did not ” know” Mary until after Jesus was born. Of course this was a reference to physical intimacy, which of course makes the husband and the wife ” one flesh.” This coming together is of course a sacred thing and this one flesh is a mysterious thing. Now consider the even deeper aspect of this ” knowing.” The spiritual knowing is something very mysterious.

To know and be filled with the ” fullness of God,” is a supernatural thing. There is nothing physical about it, it is above and beyond that. So one may ask this very legitimate question of all who profess to be Christians ” Do you ” know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Eph 3:19) One must ” know,” the love of Christ, not know about it ( because the scriptures say it passes knowledge) if one is to be filled with the ” fullness of God.” This is the Christian man or woman. The man or the woman who can say ” For we do not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eye-witnesses of His majesty ( 2 Pet 1:16)

To know the unknowable you
Is all I want to do
To plunge the depths of your love
Is to soar in the heavens above
Oh to know what cannot be known
It to kneel before your throne

The role of the Remnant church in the last days

Posted by appolus on September 26, 2012

The Remnant’s role has changed down through the centuries, but always at her core she has been called to be a witness, an eye-witness to Gods glory. This is the essential heartbeat of Gods Remnant bride and always will be. In this role she has been used as a sanctuary, the sanctuary, the Holy of Holy’s. She is a tabernacle in the wilderness, she is Gods temple here on earth. She is a place for the weary and the lost and forsaken. At the same time she has always been despised by the religious spirit. These are people who confess God with their mouths but who have not received God’s glory, who have never encountered the glory of the living God. In these last days God has a special role for His Remnant people and of course this will only increase the hatred by those of the religious spirit. God says in His word through His prophet Zechariah that ” In that last day a fountain shall be opened up for the house of David,” and God Himself says again through the prophet that ( speaking of Christendom) “Two thirds in it shall be cut off and die. But one-third shall be left in it. I will bring the one-third through the fire, I will refine them as silver is refined and test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name and I will answer them. I will say ” This is my people.” (Zec 13:8-9)

The Dark Abyss

Posted by appolus on September 25, 2012

I looked in to the dark abyss
And it looked right back at me
Full of swirling chaos
And darker than the darkest sea

There were mountainous waves and lightening too
That raced across the skies
There was great explosions of thunder
That drowned out all mens cries

The mountainous waves rose to their height
And men would scream and cry with fright
Arms waving wildly and distorted features
These men were the most miserable of creatures

He saw me in the storm

Posted by appolus on September 19, 2012

Lord have you seen my tears?
Can’t you see I’m drowning in my fears?
I try to run but there’s no where left to hide
I fall to my knees because I’m dying here inside

I lift my eyes and there’s darkness all around
I try to get up but I fall back to the ground
I try to scream but I cannot make a sound
I’m lost and alone and I never shall be found

Reach down and touch me Lord wont you please?
For if you don’t I’ll die here on my knees
My heart is broken and has spilled out all my love
My only hope is a touch from up above

Have you touched the glory?

Posted by appolus on September 17, 2012

In John 17 Jesus says “And I have given them the glory which You have given Me, that they may be one, even as We are one, I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that You have sent Me and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
(Joh 17:22-23)

Can I ask you a question? What does that mean to you? What is this glory that God the Father gave to His beloved Son and that He gave to us? In the Gospel of Mark Jesus is asked a question “They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.” (Mar 10:37)
You see, Jesus is in His glory in the throne-room. He has made a way for His disciples and all who follow Him to come into that glory, to come into that throne-room, to come before our heavenly Father. Have you been there brothers and sister? Have you seen His glory? This is a serious question, for if the Lord says He has given us something, do you have it?

All the Kings horses

Posted by appolus on September 12, 2012

I wrote this song/poem a few weeks ago. My inspiration was my sister who gave her life to Jesus six weeks ago at the age of 49. She had been ravaged by drugs and alcohol over 12 years. I thought back to a vision that I had many years ago about my own life. In the vision there was a clay jar and it was thrown to the ground and it shattered. IN the vision I could see there was still some fairly large pieces left so these pieces were picked up and thrown down. This was done three times in all until there was only ” ten thousand,” small pieces. Humanly speaking this could not be put back together again. Then in the vision I saw an older man, I could not really see His face but he had spectacles at the end of His nose and he was taking each tiny fragment, and with skills that only He had, He was putting the pieces back together again. As soon as I wrote it I put it on Facebook and less than five minutes later a sister in Christ saw it in Scotland and contacted me and asked me if she could put music to this and make a song out of it, she told me that she already had the melody that the Lord had laid on her heart. So, if you read this and listen to the song, please know that no matter how broken you are, there is a God in heaven that loves you, so much so that He sent His beloved Son to die for you. You can be put back together again, there is hope for you, your hope lies in the Lord Jesus.

A wingless bird?

Posted by appolus on September 5, 2012

We dwell in thee Oh God
As the fish dwells in the sea
We find our place in you
As a lock is to a key

To walk outside your presence
Is like a bird that has no wings
This bird that cannot fly
Is the bird that cannot sing

When we have left our first love
Then we stand outside the door
When this lion opens up its mouth
This lion finds it cannot roar
