Future Studies Being Considered

Dear Mike As each day unfolds I find myself continuously reflecting on the truth you so eruditely bring to light. And the truth thrills me as line upon line and precept upon precept is brilliantly unwrapped and gifted to me. I feel like a little child when presented with the most precious sparkling treasure imaginable. Indeed you have been blessed with the commission to spend your life on behalf of your brothers and sisters and in my estimation you are doing a brilliant job. I feel blessed beyond measure for finally being permitted to know some of the mystery of the Kingdom of God. I do hope my education continues. GoD willing I too may be given the opportunity one day to serve my fellow man in a small way as you do in such an overflowing way.

I have been following your series on the symbols in the OT and NT as they relate to universal but hidden truths. Color, numerical values and of course simple ciphers characterized by word substitution i.e. 'lake of fire" for judgment etc. Wonderfully enlightening. But I hunger for more. Have you or are you considering exploring further into God's hidden meaning by examining biblical names both for place and people as well as considering the 'mystical" portent of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet? I understand that The Pentateuch was originally composed of contiguous letter sequencing and that each letter has an alpha-numeric assignation. Am I overreaching here? Let me know and as much as it grieves me to pull my hand out of the cookie jar I will do so.

Love you Brother M____

Hi M____, Thank you for your encouraging words and the gratitude you have for spiritual insights and spiritual vision. I am pleased that you are obviously aware of the need to avoid giving credit to the messenger for the message. Christ is the message and all of His true messengers will always insist that the focus be kept on Him. Having said that, I am nevertheless grateful for every letter like yours which expresses gratitude for all that we at iswasandwillbe.com are privileged to be the messengers to those to whom it is given to receive the Truths we are so blessed with. I'm as effusive to my Lord as are you. It humbles me to realize the bounty of spiritual food which has been placed before us. We truly are those who are typified by Benjamin: Gen 43:34 And he took [and sent] messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, and were merry with him.

Gen 45:22 To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment. 'Five' is of course but the spiritual symbol of God's grace and faith in the lives of God's elect, and 'three' always represents the Is, Was, and Will Be process of salvation. Salvation is definitely a process which must be endured to the end: Mat 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. You ask: " Have you or are you considering exploring further into Gods hidden meaning by examining biblical names both for place and people as well as considering the 'mystical" portent of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet?" As as matter of fact I am considering a series on the spiritual significance of names in scripture. Many places are named for events which occurred there as the Patriarchs wandered through the promised land and as Israel wandered through the wilderness. It is all for our edification if we are given eyes to see and ears to hear. But the names will come after we have covered animals and plants in scripture. No, I am not considering doing a study on the significance of the numbers of the Hebrew alphabet. I have already covered the significance of the most often used numbers in scripture, so if you feel led to do such a study I would love to see and hear what the Lord gives to you. I tell everyone that I feel like the most blessed person in the world to sit here and absorb what so many of God's children share with me. As for your being used of God to share with others, that is the very reason for which we are called. We are all to share with others in whatever capacity we are given to share. Not everyone can speak and not everyone can write, but God uses the weak and poor and blind to confound those with sight and strength and wealth. It took over fifty years to bring me to the point of being prepared to be used in His service, but that was what He had planned for me. There are several young men in our fellowship who are being given much more at an earlier stage in their lives. Thank you again for your encouraging words. I have no doubt that, in His time, you will be a shining light to many. Mike
