We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.


Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.


  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )


# 146 Able to See Truth

By Arla, Nov 19 2020 02:00AM

The Pharisees have again attempted to discredit Jesus to the people by bringing up his questionable birth. saying, "God is our father."

Jesus doesn't give their insinuation any attention. "If God were your father you would love me because I came from Him. You act like your father, the devil--a liar and a murderer--and father to them. If I said I didn't know God, I would be a liar like you."

They won't admit they are wrong. For nearly three years they've been looking to destroy him because he didn't come in power and glory as they thought Messiah should. They don't love the truth, won't even investigate it, but close their minds to it, close their ears to Ruach's voice. Jesus says this proves they have no connection with God.

"You can't hear me because you don't know God. Abraham asked to see my day; he saw it, and was glad." (Abraham was the only man God asked to give his son as Abba was going to. He saw and completely understood God's suffering in giving us Adonai.)

"What! You aren't 50 years old, and you've seen Abraham?" they scoff.

"Seriously, before Abraham was, I AM."

Gasps escape many, then shocked silence. He used the name given Moses to identify himself as the Self-existent One! This poor, unassuming Galilean rabbi has just announced himself to be the Eternal Presence!

Now many of the people side with the rabbis, and being led by them, pick up stones to stone Him.

But Jesus, hidden from their sight, passes on.

John 8:36-59
