Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- it is only a short time before eternity starts.
1 Corinthians 15:45-49,53 NLT
 The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.” But the last Adam-that is, Christ-is a life-giving Spirit.  What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later.  Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven.  Earthly people are like the earthly man, and heavenly people are like the heavenly man.  Just as we are now like the earthly man, we will someday be like the heavenly man.  For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.
This sounds like something I really need. I struggle so hard to hear from the Lord and draw near to Him. It has been a long and painful journey. I don’t know if any of this makes sense but without going into a long story. I feel as though I have missed out on so much intimacy with the Lord because of all the struggles I have with what I stated earlier.
I am miserable, you know how the bible says my sheep know my voice. Well I really struggle to hear and know His voice and it makes me wonder if I really belong to Him or not. I have such a strong desire to know Him intimately but the harder I try to obtain that, it seems to be further away. I know we are to walk by faith and not sight but I am really struggling here. Do you have any advice to help or point me in the right direction?
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today – I live not from here.

 Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world.”
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today – we are not the teachers of each other, when we do we replace Heavens’ sent teacher – Holy Spirit.
John 14:15-17,26-27 NLT
 “If you love me, obey my commandments.  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you.  He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. 26] But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative-that is, the Holy Spirit-he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.  “I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- we live in such a regulated society, we have laws to control and direct our behaviour in all facets of life, and yet God chooses to close the law book, as it does not work, and open a new way of life, the way of love.
Romans 13:8-10 NLT
 Owe nothing to anyone except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law.  For the commandments say, “You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.” These and other such commandments are summed up in this one commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God’s law.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- the intention and desire of God is to be knowable and known, this is why Jesus came.
John 12:44-45 NLT

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- do you believe in Jesus? Then eternal life is a seed within this truth that will come to harvest at my death.
John 11:25-26 NLT
 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.  Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this?”
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- the why is not the question, it’s the what is going to happen?
John 9:1-3 NLT
 As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth.  “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?”  “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.
