No Strings Attached

Many have been passing through a dark, narrow, oppressive, fearful place in this present hour. We must continue to stand on 1 Timothy 1:7, “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].” and 1 John 4:18, “There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love].”; on behalf of our families and on behalf of ALL those in need in this hour in which we find ourselves as individuals, families, and as nations.

If there is one thing Holy Spirit has taught me well over the past 16 year season, it’s that our Heavenly Father is always at work making ‘real boys with no strings attached’ – turning what the enemy meant for harm into good (Genesis 50:20). Let me explain. Most everyone is familiar with the children’s story, Pinocchio. Pinocchio learned valuable life lessons about love, truth, and about who he was created to be on the inside, through his journey and desire to be ‘a real boy,’ not content to remain as a wooden puppet confined to strings.

Maturing sons of the Most High have been through a rough season of trials, tribulations, testing, and refining (Revelation 3;18) for the hour in His Story we have been chosen to walk this Earth and find ourselves in on behalf of the lost, needy, and broken. Isaiah 60:2, “For in fact, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness will cover the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you [*Jerusalem] And His glory and brilliance will be seen on you.” *Remember, we have been grafted into Israel until an appointed time, therefore, we have been called in this hour of immense darkness to shine with the glory and brilliance of the Kingdom of Light on the Earth. What does that even mean?

Back to Pinocchio’s life lessons. In order to comprehend the depth of our Heavenly Father’s love, and the love demonstrated by our Lord and Savior on behalf of ALL mankind through His journey and sacrifice, there is a similar journey awaiting each of us in learning how to see ourselves through our Father eye’s in the Perfected Son – in Love and in Truth. Christ modeled a transformation of who we are generationally, culturally, religiously, gifted, skilled, called, etc. by completely ‘letting go of’ – surrendering the reins of His life in faith to the Father’s goodness – trusting in His will and purpose on behalf of all. Elohim’s will and purpose as Yahweh, Adonai, Jehovah, and Father is always about the big picture – mankind being in intimate relationship with Heaven’s atmosphere and all of it’s lovingkindness on the Earth – not just in eternity. The transformation of becoming a ‘real boy’ involves walking out every facet of every detail of every day in every relationship and in every circumstance in one accord with the Father by being in one accord with the Son – His love and truth – with no strings attached!

This is literally impossible unless one pursues absolute yielding to and intimacy with both the Word and Holy Spirit (Zech. 4:6). Not an easy life lesson to learn, but with God nothing is impossible if we will simply keep looking to the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2), ‘pressing on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 3:14). Isaiah 60 IS and will increasingly manifest through maturing sons (His Word does not return void (Isaiah 55:11)), and His glory WILL cover the Earth as the waters cover the seas (Habakkuk 2:14) as the Father’s sons, whom the whole Earth has been groaning for (Romans 8:19-22), ‘let go and let Christ’ live His life IN us in Love and Truth – no strings attached!

Our journey on the Earth was never about us, but rather Isaiah 61:1-4, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me To bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted, To proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives And freedom to prisoners, To proclaim [a]the favorable year of the Lord, [b]And the day of vengeance and retribution of our God, To comfort all who mourn, To grant to those who mourn in Zion the following: To give them a [c]turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning], The oil of joy instead of mourning, The garment [expressive] of praise instead of a disheartened spirit. So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God], The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, They will raise up and restore the former desolations; And they will renew the ruined cities, The desolations (deserted settlements) of many generations.”

Esther 4:14, “For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”
