It was’t long after “Godly” had been given her jewels, the reward for her being “real,” that she embarked on the river of rivers to her destination,… even “the end of time.”As “Godly” stepped into the ship- the relationSHIP of a man and a woman (union between spirit and soul), she realized that she wasn’t fully dressed. All of her body was completely covered in a glorious white flowing material manufactured by “Grace,” but there was no covering over her heart. It was fully exposed, and because it was not covered, it was open to deception.
How many realize that in the final journey into eternity that deception is the last enemy to be defeated? Who is there among men who know how deceitful and exceedingly wicked the heart really is?
The Most High God had decreed that the final test for His own would be on the day called “Micaiah-Day”… the day of testing for His elect to try them if they know the ways, mind, and heart of God or not. And so “Godly’s” turn to be tried had come. “Godly” flowed in the spirit, her mind had become keen to be able to perceive the moving of the Spirit and she was able to hear the Spirit’s voice clearly for others, but she did not know her own heart. This river- this ship- this union that was appointed to her would provide the means of discovery for the deepest of the depths of her heart to be revealed.
The ship called the “Discovery of True Love” had one other passenger, a captain and a crew of messengers from above on it. The passenger’s name was “Anomaly.” “Godly” was being called to relive the love relationship of a broken one in her ancestral line in order to understand a driving force deep within that made her unable to love in full intimacy. It was “Anomaly”’s mission to help “Godly” get in touch with her truest emotions which was something she had not been able to do.
The “River of Rivers” sang the “Melody of Love” as it flowed towards its destiny. Its sounds with notes from a higher symphony not known to man, had the power to drive away the black birds that came in the night to torment “Godly” when she was asleep. Her life had been protected by the “Melody of Love” from the time she was in her mother’s womb and the “River of Life” was there even then; She had bathed in it and gloried in it, but never had embarked upon the river until now, when her final test had come to try her.
“Anomaly” fell in love with her the minute he saw her- She was what he desired, but he did not know his heart either. Both would come to know not only their own hearts, but the ones of their ancestors that had impacted them … And more importantly, they would come to know the heart of God.
One day toward the end of their journey, “Anomaly” and “Godly” dove into the deepest part of the river and both were naked and unashamed. When they were in the secret place of treasures, it was then that” Anomaly” asked “Godly” to become his bride. The desire to have her came because the wonder of the treasures filled him with overwhelming ecstasy and also because “Godly’s” beauty increased sevenfold due to the brilliance of the light that penetrated and filled her in that place. “Anomaly” also shined with the same glory and looked magnificently appealing to “Godly” as well. Wishing her answer could have been “yes,” with great sadness she replied: “How can I become yours when I don’t know my heart, and although you think you do, you don’t really know yours either?”
In that moment a giant oyster was compelled by an unknown power to open itself up, and when it did, a glorious pearl, even the “Pearl of Great Price” was revealed in all its splendor. A voice from heaven thundered and great lightning flashes came with it, even rays from Melchizedek’s throne in heaven shining on the waters of the river. “THIS is your heart’s deepest desire: “It’s the Glory of God. This is why you were put on earth. Will you take “Glory”’s wonder as your own, or will you be like some of your ancestors and the children of Israel who blindly sought after what could not satisfy them?
It’s your choice!
Author’s note: A.B.Simpson said: “ As long as you want anything very much, especially more than you want God, it is an idol.” There are many idols that God’s people worship: Power, money, people, fame, position and more… even our own selves, but only Jesus can satisfy us. When we give up our idols and His work is finished in us, then the world will be our oyster and we’ll no longer be clammed up. Yay! We’ll have that pearl of great price and both it and us will be a glorious wonder. Hallelujah!
