Many years ago while in a very quiet place…no, I was not really in a quiet place…I was in a neighborhood park, sitting under a beautiful flowering tree. Its blossoms were tiny white pebbles, and I was being entertained by the nesting birds perched on its limbs. Actually, with my head lifted back and my eyes closed, I was rejoicing at a familiar passage in the Bible I was reading which is found in Matthew 6:9-13. I’m quit sure you are familiar with whose famous words recited by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ as to the manner we ought to pray to the Father in Heaven. Koo-uk-koo….koo, koo, the birds chanted…Koo-uk-koo, koo, koo, sang the birds. But, to me, I heard “Ride on King Jesus, ride on”!
The difference between a Biography and an Autobiography…
It is very important that we distinguish between the two types of narratives. A biography is an account of a person’s life, written by another individual. An Autobiography is also a biography of oneself as narrated/written by oneself. The literary form can be displayed in a book, diaries, letters, journals, memoirs, and oral reminiscences.
As I was in deep thought on that particular sunny day, the Holy Spirit got a hold on me and asked me how would I like to digest the Lord’s Prayer in Three Person rather in just through the instructions of Jesus Christ. I pondered the meaning of the question, but the Inner Voice inside me (the Holy Spirit) said, I will interpret it for you in the Voice of the Father God, the Son, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit. I smiled, threw my head back and whispered…’Say on, my beloved Teacher…say on!’
The first voice speaking in the narrative below is God’s preference of how to address him in prayer. The second Voice in parenthesis is the Son, Jesus Christ. The Third Voice is our Teacher, the Holy Spirit:
Our Father Which Art In Heaven (I have come down from heaven, Hollowed Be Thy Name (to endorse everything I have made. Thy Kingdom Come (I'm here! Look at me! I am the Kingdom predicted to come! Thy Will Be Done On Earth As It Is In Heaven (Obey Me and do My will, Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread (Recognize me as your all in all. And Forgive Us Our Debts As We Forgive Our Debtors (Stop judging folks! Accept them. Accept Me! For Thine Is The Kingdom (I've told you once and I'm telling you again. It's Me they were talking about. The Power (Try Me, Test Me, Prove Me, Use me, And The Glory (The "secret" is no more. The mystery is cleared up, Forever (Wise up world! AMEN (So be it.)
There are many gods of this world. But, I'm talking about my Father (yours and mine) who lives in that Holy Habitation...Heaven. Jesus is saying, may the name of God (His name, 'Jesus') be written (carved) into and onto everything which thou (he) hath made both in Heaven and on earth. In the Old Testament, after King Solomon had completed the Lord's House, using the Lord's blueprint, the Lord God 'spoke' to Solomon and said, "I have hollowed this house which thou hath built, to put my name there forever." I Kings 9:3 Jesus says, I'm talked about all through the Old Testament. Somebody was always saying the Kingdom will be established. My Father promised I would come through the house of David. "Then I will establish the throne of the kingdom upon Israel forever." I Kings 9:5 Yes, I have created you in my own image and because I have a free will, you, too, have a free will. Use it and OBEY. Adam misused his will and was "set out" of safety (Eden). The angel Lucifer also misused his will and was set out from the Heavenly Host. Only God's will now reigns in Heaven. It's down here on earth, where I have come, that things are all messed up. Genesis 3:23 & 24 Revelation 12:9 Accept me (Jesus) today because I am the Bread of Life. Pray that I might become real in your life. Digest my teachings. Digest me. Eat me and you'll never be hungry again. But best of all, you'll never die! Why? Because I am the Bread of Life! John 6:35 Be ever so careful when you include these words in your prayer. Don't forfeit your prayer to the Father because you went down on your knees before you went to your brother and asked forgiveness. Matthew 6:14 & 15 says... For if ye forgive men their trespasses your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if ye forgive not men their trespasses neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. I am the authority now. My Father has crowned Me. You must receive Me (Jesus) as the King before you can enter into the Kingdom of My Father. If God is for you, no man can be against you. For greater is he that is in Me than he that is in the world. The mystery of who's coming to save (redeem) mankind is cleared up. I am the glorious One the world has been awaiting. "To whom God would make known what is the riches of the Glory of this mystery among the gentiles; which is Christ Jesus in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27 You will pass away. Your works will pass away. But what I'm telling you (my word) shall last for all times. Isaiah 40
Scripture Lesson: “Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!'” Mark 13:33, 37.
