“Dogmatic” stole the light covering it with his body of contempt. Oh how sure he was that he had the truth, but he didn’t. He was full of pride and hated those who didn’t think like he did. He was a manipulator, one who could by force convince others he was right,… that is until the Holy Spirit showed them differently.
Oh my! The confrontations that he had with others were many and because of them, peace was nowhere to be found… not in those he confronted and not within himself. His “know it all” attitude was known among all those he associated with. He wasn’t right and he wasn’t accepted by people, except those who had the true heart of God and realized that he was blind.
One such one named “Little Maid of Honor” prayed for him continually. She realized how wretched he was not having peace, and oh how she willed for him and every man to have the peace that passed all understanding. “Little Maid of Honor” was the best friend of the Bride of Christ and there was no one in the “Land of Promise” like her. This land was the beginning place of every man’s journey into “Wholeness”, the final destiny of all who proved to be righteous, faithful and true…. It was the place where conception of truth was birthed by believing the promise of God and growing in faith in order for the maturity of the bride to come forth.
Every day “Little Maid of Honor” decreed the promise of God over “Dogmatic” believing even this one who was so dogmatic, rude, and controlling could also come into the kingdom when he repented. She prayed for the angel “Contrition”to be sent to him for she knew that contrition was the key for his turnaround, even the way for every man’s turnaround. And so it came to pass that when “Contrition” appeared to “Dogmatic”, he didn’t receive her at first, because she was not dressed in fine clothing, but in sackcloth. He thought she looked terrible and shoved her aside pushing her with his hand of disapproval. However, “Contrition” had another angel with her, a small child angel whose name was “Beginning of Life”. He drawn to this little one each time she said: “Let there be light!” “Dogmatic” couldn’t resist her. After the third time she said “Let there be light”, the scales came off his eyes and he could see clearly through the new ones given to him what was underneath “Contrition’s” clothing of sackcloth-… a heart of pure gold encased in diamond truth.
Great, great conviction came into him in the moment “Contrition” boldly declared: “Only the pure in heart shall see God…. Only the pure in heart shall know the truth!
Are you ready to have your heart cleansed and error removed from your mind “Dogmatic”?” the angel asked him.
Indeed he was and in that moment, he was raised up to be the best doorkeeper in the kingdom of God ever!…. And wouldn’t you know?….“Open-minded” became his new name!! He was “Dogmatic” no more!
