Conversation Number 8

Conversations are updated as He leads.

This "Conversations With God" site is presented to you in the hope that  one person’s struggles, questions, doubts, and conflicts, along with God’s answers to this person, are a help to you. The questions, answers, and messages are a look at one believer’s private struggle in his walk of faith.

The following conversation with God between a believer and God is not meant to represent a specific theology or theological truth. It represents one believer's struggle and the response that believer represents as God's truth for that believer and that believer alone.

Good morning, Lord.
Good morning, my son.

I love you Lord.
Yes, I receive that from you. You are full of doubts today. Your mind is overflowing with thoughts, fears, and questions.

It is always like that isn’t it? Isn’t it normal to have an active mind?
Yes, it is normal. It is also beautiful when you point your mind toward my kingdom in its pursuit of things unusual. You will find in my kingdom the most fantastic of fantastic things, ideas, and creations. You could spend billions of years just studying the beauty and intricacies of my creations in the heavenly realms. Heaven is not just a place of beauty but a place of work, of wonder, of joy, and of imagination not limited by earthly rules. Being here is a like a freedom to both imagine and build at the same time. I cannot tell you all about it for it is not close to your time of arrival, but it is something to look forward to. It is so tragic that people have so little hope in their lives. If people only knew what I have for them...but that is something I must keep hidden.

Lord, is it really you?
No, it is Jed Clampett. Do you want to go back into that again? We have covered that ground before, but I understand when you cannot see me or hear me in a physical dimension. When you get a glimpse of me within your heart, you know I am real. Those people who do not believe in me or who do not want to believe in me are resisting getting a glimpse of who I am within their heart. The people who want to stay away from me because of their sin and darkness never get a glimpse. Once they turn away from the sin and darkness they begin to get their sight and they get a glimpse of who I am within their heart. I find it disgruntling that I am within each person yet they do not know me or realize I am there. I am within every living cell, within every molecule, within every electron, throughout all creation. You can run from me but you cannot hide. I know you are tired, but we must push ahead here. There are forces at work in the world that would have people believe I do not exist. These forces also are deceptive. These forces will come to earth trying to deceive people into believing in other gods, other beings, and other forms of life as if these were all the one true God. When people worship, they must worship only the one true God, the one true Jesus Christ, and the one true Holy Spirit. You must not connect me to what is about to deceive you. Always worship me in spirit and in truth, nothing else. I can produce events and I will produce events in the world, but you must worship me from within your heart. It makes no difference how I appear in the world, where I appear, or what form I appear in, as long as you worship me in spirit and in truth within yourself. How very critical this is that you worship me from within. Too many people today are connecting things, places, circumstances, and people with worship. It is wonderful to be among other believers, only if those believers are in true worship within themselves and have removed themselves from all the exterior trappings of worship. This idea ought to be simple. I am a spiritual being. You can reach me from within yourself only in spirit and in truth. To use exterior, physical, or material things to connect to me must be done with extreme caution. I am not saying do not use material things as reminders. I am saying the exterior trappings are not I. Another topic: People who suffer cannot participate in my love and compassion as well as others. The greater their level of suffering the farther away they are from me. When people who suffer turn to me, even though they are far away I will come to them and be with them. People who are suffering can be close to me in exponential ways, even when they are suffering so much they cannot get a sense of my presence. When suffering comes, I am there with them if they turn to me and stay turned towards me. This is where faith must be strong. Faith in suffering means that even when you do not sense I am near you, you stay focused on me and stay turned in my direction. When you do this, not only am I close to you, I am preparing a heavenly place for you. You must understand there are things I do and do not do because of rules lay down in eons past. Circumstances must unfold in certain ways and in certain formations. The unfolding of circumstances depends upon mysteries that must remain hidden. Many things must remain hidden because the opposing force, the force of darkness would use these unfolding circumstances against my will. My will will be done on earth and in heaven, but certain things must happen in certain ways and times for my will to reach its fulfillment. This matter is like a puzzle and only I know how the pieces fit together. Each person on the earth is so important because each person plays a part in getting the puzzle put together and making it work. The whole puzzle is about glorification. If each person on the Earth would make every effort to glorify my name, all of creation would change. However, that day will not happen until many other things have unfolded. There are many things I want to show you but will not because of this puzzle that remains to be completed. However, in faith, you must know that your faith in me, and the faith of others in me, makes such a dramatic difference in all of the forms of creation I have made. Everyone who prays is so vital to helping me do my work and so vital to the servants who do my work. Every prayer is heard, every prayer is received by me, and every prayer is a blessing not only to me but also for the person prayer.

I an not very good at the form of a prayer, Lord.
There is no right form of a prayer. A prayer is not necessarily the words. A prayer is the working out of the heart. I know what you need so you do not need to tell me. What you need to do is just rest in me, get a glimpse of me, and try to possess me within your heart.

Thank you for talking with me Lord. I love you.
Thank you my son, I love you too.
