“Unteachable“ liked being hard hearted and willful because those qualities put her in control and oh, how she loved the feeling she had in rising up over man, but there was one she couldn’t control. “Unteachable” hated that one called “Supple,” not only because she couldn’t dominate her, but because each time she got near her, conviction would come into her heart that she was not who she was supposed to be.
“Supple” was a praying woman who loved freely. She never looked at what she could get from others, but always at what she could give to them. Consequently, the God of all creation, her God, provided all her needs. He put it on “Supple’s” heart to pray for “Unteachable” instructing her to always pray in the palace for this one. “Supple” prayed for everyone, everywhere she went, but it would only be from in the palace treasure room that revelation could be given to her concerning “Unteachable.”
Because men loved their sins, blindness to the truth was prevalent in the world, and “Supple” knew this. However, there was a greater depth of understanding that she was to gain by dwelling in the palace, and “Unteachable” was the instrument God chose to use to get “Supple” to make her home there. Yes, she could go in and out at the direction of the “Holy One” in her, but her permanent residence was to be in the palace.
One day, a small ant called “Contrary” somehow sneaked into the palace…. All in the palace were aflutter because they knew that “Contrary” had no right to be in the King’s residence, but “Supple” was unaware of “Contrary’s” presence. “Contrary” was so very small and because “Supple” had a speck in her eye, she didn’t see her. “Supple” was very-soft hearted and easily corrected, yet “Contrary” was there because she was an outward witness of the enemy inside “Supple” that needed to be dethroned-…. a very small enemy, but an enemy, that if not evicted, could change her form and size to become a very formidable one, even “Hatred”.
In the kingdom, every enemy had to be addressed the moment it appeared, because the King’s command was to take every thought captive. Those who did not do this had to live in the outer courts, never inside the palace and could never, never, NEVER be in the treasure room.
The speck in “Supple” started to become enlarged and one of the King’s princesses, a favorite daughter called “Calm and Assuring,” noticed it. This one was “Supple’s” best friend, so when the princess approached her with a poultice, “Supple” had no resistance to it being placed on her eye. “Calm and Assuring” knew that the poultice in itself could not remove the speck- …that a spoken word had to accompany what was to be revealed by the “Holy Spirit.”
The king’s daughter spoke the needed word through the gift of tongues which was the instrument ordained to begin the healing. “You shall have the interpretation of my tongues in three days,” she assured “Supple”, “so rest now in the knowledge that help will be given for you to see the truth. During your time of rest, all that you are to do is to give praise and thanks to God, and most importantly, you are to fully realize you can do nothing in yourself. You have known this in your mind, but deep down in your heart, you have not grasped that you are incapable of doing anything for yourself or for anyone else. That you have not fully understood this is the reason why you have condemned yourself and others. Know that all will be playing their parts in the coming of the “Real I Nation,” the family of God in glory. Dear, dear “Supple,” soon you shall bear the name “I Am That I Am” and when it is sealed on your forehead, on your arm and on your heart, you shall go forth just as Moses did to set God’s people free. All of creation is waiting for you and waiting for the hour of the “Real I Nation.” Now do as you are instructed and then “Contrary” will have no place in you or in the palace, and when your obedience is fulfilled, “Unteachable” will become “Teachable.” The “Day of Reckoning” is at the door, for don’t you know that in reckoning yourself dead to sin, you shall not sin? All the specks in one’s eye, the specks in the eyes of others shall be gone after this is done, and you shall have rulership in the “Real I Nation,”….
even part of the “I AM THAT I AM” people of God who bear their Father’s name!
