SHRINKING LILIES

This morning I was approached of the Lord with an odd thought and it’s on this scripture.  I will share the thought but first let the word via Dr Strongs Concordance speak for itself. 

Here’s the scripture from NAS

HEBREWS 10:38 BUT MY RIGHTEOUS ONE SHALL LIVE BY FAITH; AND IF HE SHRINKS BACK, MY SOUL HAS NO PLEASURE IN HIM.

Righteous (One)

      2. innocent, faultless, guiltless

      3. used of him whose way of thinking, feeling, and acting is wholly conformed to the will of God, and who therefore needs no rectification in the heart or life 1a

    2. only Christ truly

      1. approved of or acceptable of God

    3. in a narrower sense, rendering to each his due and that in a judicial sense, passing just judgment on others, whether expressed in words or shown by the manner of dealing with them

Soul

Strong's Number:   5590

Psuche

      1. the vital force which animates the body and shows itself in breathing 1a

    2. of animals 1a

  2. of men

      1. a living being, a living soul

  1. the soul

 .        the seat of the feelings, desires, affections, aversions (our heart, soul etc.)

a.       the (human) soul in so far as it is constituted that by the right use of the aids offered it by God it can attain its highest end and secure eternal blessedness, the soul regarded as a moral being designed for everlasting life

b.       the soul as an essence which differs from the body and is not dissolved by death (distinguished from other parts of the body)

Pleasure

Strong's Number:   2106

Eudokeo

·  it seems good to one, is one's good pleasure

  1. think it good, choose, determine, decide

  2. to do willingly

  3. to be ready to, to prefer, choose rather

·  to be well pleased with, take pleasure in, to be favourably inclined towards one

So the Innocent Holy Equitable Person lives by the conviction that God exists and therefore has an air of expectancy to be with God all the time in a constant position throughout life.  But or And if that person NOW draws or hesitates or conceals themselves or dissembles in their relating to God.  The sense of before His face rather than just behind His back applies here, especially before His face.  Then the SOUL (He has soul?) of God the Lord God Almighty will have no pleasure or think well of or prefer possibly the presence of or even choose the Equitable One.   

So now that the Logos spoke let me relay to you the Rhema. 

This is what He said to me.  If I come into the room and give you a “peck” on the cheek and you run screaming from the room. What do you think?  What am I SUPPOSED to DO?  Its like “What’s up with that?  What wrong with her?  That I know, KNOW the problem is one thing but here I stand in MY little robe and sandals going” Is it my breath?  Is it something I said?”  

People as I type this I am choking with laughter!!!!!!!!!!!!!   The way He said this I could have died!!!!!!!!!!!   But when I started looking up the words and the Logos spoke I get the point and the words of prophecy have been out about God doing this new thing and that He is revealing Himself and all this and such and now do we having looked with all this expectancy that He should COME.  Everyone has their thing HE will reveal, for me its ……  hmmmmm personal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  SMILE!

But in the end the thought I am left with is that to Him to draw back is so like TOTALLY RUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

Think about it.
