The Twilight Zone

God’s Thoughts to Me

And He said to His servants,”The wedding feast is ready and the guests I invited aren’t worthy of the honor. Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see” (Matthew 22:8, NLT).

Lost In Transition

image

Lady Truth and her sister, Wisdom, are standing at the crossroads of every lonely life;  every heart lost in the maze of this cruel, dark world.

They have been instructed by King Jesus to draw and woo every widowed and desolate soul to Him for the invited guests have declined His invitation to His wedding feast.

King Jesus, the King of Eternity and Truth, has invited new guests from all the corners of the earth to the love feast of the Marriage of the Lamb.

He Himself is the penman of His blood-written invitations softly scribbled on delicate fragrant rose petals.

image

He has tenderly sealed every invite with a tear of His mercy and compassion and wrapped it with ribbons of colorful grace.

Each letter is a calligraphic master piece of excellence and written with His kisses of delight and anticipation.

His five messengers are the winds called Sirocco, Sarayu, Mistral, Alizé and Calina. He has tenderly wrapped each invite in an envelope of raindrops.

image

But the world is dressed in a cloak of twilight; the cloak of the Mystery Woman, called Babylon. She solicits ignorant youths in the streets, markets, alleys and dark corners.

She seduces humanity with her pretty speech, enticing and mesmerizing them with her honey sweet flattery of venomous lies dripping from her luscious lips.

image

This woman’s house is a place of death and the road leading into her deception is  the road called religion.

Her palace is governed by a den of thieves who revel in luxury and opulence by fleecing their flock. Her lovers are the monsters called Pride and Power.

But on a hilltop along this road, Lady Wisdom takes her stand and showers the raindrops of love on all who are lost and walking this doomed road to destruction.

image

She is showing every childlike one with ears to hear and eyes to see the Way called Narrow … the Way of Truth … the way into His Loving Embrace.

Much love and sweet blessings xx

  1. May the raindrops of Living Water open the eyes of the lonely to accept His invitation. Blessings, my friend.

  2. Beautiful post with such words of wisdom and truth. So grateful for His blood written invitation that is sealed with a tear of mercy, compassion and is wrapped with ribbons of colorful grace! Many blessings to you dear Mia!

    • Hi Natashlim
      Oh, I join you in thankfulness for our Lord’s blood-written invitation and the honor to the bride at His wedding feast.
      Much love XX

    • Dear Sheila
      Oh, if only our Beloved Lord Jesus is glorified, I am so happy! Oh, my friend, I don’t think we will ever know on this side of eternity what He gave up to save us.

  3. I was captured by the same thought as His Fire Fly– that Babylon surrounds us with seductive words. Such an analogy to the society which surrounds us. But praise God for his raindrops of wisdom, truth, and love to cleanse us.
    Blessings,

    • Dear Janis
      Yes, we are truly surrounded by the deceptive ways of the world. Let us keep our eyes fixed on the things unseen that will last forever like Paul encourages us to do.

  4. Thank you for sharing with us here at “Tell Me a Story.” It is a relationship with Jesus that brings us into the banquet. Religion is a substitute and many feel secure not realizing they have been deceived. However it is amazing that even some will find Jesus by other means, such as reading the Bible, and by an inspired witness even if it be those preachers who seem to be so proud!.

    • Dear Hazel
      Your comment reminds me of the book, I Dared To Call Him Father. The lady started to learn of Jesus in the Koran. Our Pappa works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform.

      Thank you for your encouraging comment. I am always so blessed when Pappa speaks His words of love through you at your place.

  5. Oh, may I never go down that “road leading into her deception is the road called religion,” but instead walk the Way of the Narrow.

    Mia, your writing is like no other! I’m always glad to come and see what you have to say.

    • Dear Jerralea
      Oh, we often need to be reminded that the narrow road is a life lived in Jesus. We need to be receptive moment by moment for Him to live His life in and through us!

  6. The photos that you picked to go with these beautiful words were just perfect. The Narrow Way is a hard road, at times, but it is the only way to THE WAY, the Truth, and the Life. I have accepted His gracious invitation to the Wedding, and it is He who helps me reach that destination.

    GOD BLESS!

    • Dear Sharon
      Yes, the narrow road is totally the opposite of the ways of the world where performance and busyness are the yardstick for success!

    • Dear Laura
      We have turned the simplicity of childlike faith in such a complexity that it is good to often be reminded of the simplicity of Jesus plus nothing else.

    • Dear Lisha
      Yes, this Lady shows up in many different ways, but she speaks only one language and that is the Love of our Beloved!

  7. Mia, Your words are so beautiful and full of truth. I missed FMF (camping), but you portrayed – so poetically – our invitation from our Father to seek Him alone for everlasting salvation. We just need to stay on His path, not our own or another force. Blessings.

    • Dear Kim
      I hope you enjoyed your camping trip. It is good to take a blogging break once in a while! Thanks for your encouraging comment.

  8. You never fail to draw me in through words and images, Mia. This post is no exception. Thank you for reminding me of the invitation. May I never take it lightly, or disregard the call of Lady Wisdom!

    • Dear Allison
      Thank you so much for your encouraging comment! Yes, we would do well to always listen to the quiet voice of Lady Wisdom!

    • Dear Lisha
      I think we will never really know on this side of eternity what our Lord gave up to write those invitations!

  9. Christ calls each one of us to the banquet and loves us as His own for we are. Amen.
    Glad you came by, Mia.

  10. “She is showing every childlike one with ears to hear and eyes to see the Way called Narrow … the Way of Truth … the way into His Loving Embrace.” Such beautiful wisdom shared here today!

    • Dear Barbie
      Oh, that our Pappa will bless us all with a childlike heart. Like Jesus told us that a little one will lead them!

  11. The perfect description of this worldly order of religion. Contrasted by the personal invitation signed in blood with the love of our Savior. Powerful word picture, Mia. You never fail to paint a graphic picture with your words.

    • Dear Floyd
      The enemy is so incredibly sly and subtle and it breaks my heart when I see people caught in his religious snare. I know how easy this is for I was also once a prisoner of his deceptions.
      Blessings XX
      Mia

  12. Hi Mia! Oh, I hope I can walk down that ‘narrow way’ and stay away from Babylon! It gets hard sometimes, but that’s living on earth. Only in heaven will I see perfection.

    Good to see you today!
    Ceil

    • Dear Ceil
      I hear your heart dear friend! It is just a matter of coming to Jesus and Him alone and then; learning to abide in Him as He lives His life in and through us moment by moment. We have made this simplicity so incredibly complex.
      Blessings XX
      Mia

  13. Yes. I love the photos and Truth and Wisdom are strong, forever. And I’m definitely often buried in Revelation, and the woman of Babylon tries to keep everything and everyone under her control…and God reverses the curse. HE is the Only One Who can break down those piles of sin damage. I count on Him, day by day.

    And, BTW, re: your comment to my post, I understand. Even though I’m a “fighter”… b/c I’m a Watcher and gotta be on target nearly all the time … I also know that He is my way to Rest, to keep my heart in a wonderfully safe place. Yes, in some ways I’m a spiritual fighter, but I’m definitely a spiritual Lover of my Lord, focusing on Him, resting in Him.

    • Dear Joanne
      Oh, what joy when we get to that place where we can just rest in our Lord Jesus. Then we know that He goes before us and the battle belongs to Him.

      Mia

  14. Ah, a “widowed soul”! That’s what I was. And what a feast—of Truth–He summoned me to! Thank you for your beautiful, and poetic, post. The words and the pictures, just lovely.

    • Dear Sylvia
      Oh, the whole world is married to an incredible cruel husband. What a joy when we “die” to get free of that marriage to accept our Lord’s invitation.

  15. This is so beautiful Mia; “written with His kisses of delight and anticipation”. How blessed we are to receive His invitation of love and grace! 🙂

    Blessings sweet sister; have a lovely weekend!
    Denise

    • Hi Denise
      Yes, dear one, we never actually think of how greatly our Pappa rejoices over everyone that returns home and accepts His invitation written on the cross!
