Encouragement

There are those of you who are walking the lonely path with YHWH. Remember, you are a light in the midst of a world filled with darkness. You are loved and needed. The path is one of endurance and obedience mixed with faith. As our ancestors before us, we must proclaim the beauty of YHWH,
His wisdom and mercy. It is not in vain.

In His Service,
Mrs.QuietBuck


Many Ask…

We get asked this question a lot, although the information can be found on our Ministry page, we do understand not everyone can go through every page here, so hopefully this will help.

YWHW Bless.


Video Response to YHWHcelestialcalendar

I was thrilled to discover this brother has spent time in Thessaloniki. What a beautiful section of Greece to reside in, if even for a little while! (Personally, I find it a blessing to have walked areas that are mentioned in Scripture!) And I was also quite happy to learn our children are very close in ages.

I want to say thank you for your openness and sharing through comments. If we can answer any questions, we will.

Here is a video response to a comment request from YHWHcelestialcalendar. YHWH bless!


Given to Change?

Given to Change

Jeremiah 23:25-28
I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name,
saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies?
yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams
which they tell every man to his neighbour,
as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
The prophet that hath a dream,
let him tell a dream;
and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully.
What is the chaff to the wheat? saith YHWH.

As we were born into a world that is given to change, and YHWH changes not, we must boldly proclaim His Word and His Word Only!  That which He has given mankind to hold onto.  Yet few truly hold to His Word and run to and fro with anything that appears of YHWH.  And that, my dear friends, is the warning here.  If it appears of YHWH, but is not, does that please Him or dishonor Him?  For there is much that appears pure and holy, yet is of sheer evil.  The star of David is a great example! And the cross is another great example!

We must also not forget that languages have aided dramatically in the changes we adhere to through today.  In fact, the original language was pictures.  Ancient Hebrew with its picture-letters tell the story so it is easy to remember. The original language was an amazing masterpiece of artwork to behold, yet today it gets discarded as if it didn’t mean much. Pictorial embraces the facts through visual, so the mind’s eyes can truly see the meaning and the story.  YHWH in Pictorial is a simple yet profound “picture” representing  His Hand and Arm covering and protecting His people.

Think back to when you were a young child learning.  Did not pictures tell you the story?  Anyone in the world can see a stick figure and know it is a person, or a stick drawing of a tree with branches and know it is a tree.  A bird, a cloud etc.  So why did we allow words to alter our perception?

Because… man stepped in, guided by the adversary, thus our ancestors followed.

Joshua 24:15
And if it seem evil unto you to serve YHWH,
choose you this day whom ye will serve;
whether the elohim which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood,
or the elohim of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell:
but as for me and my house, we will serve YHWH.

In our house, we do not add any vowels to the Name YHWH.  For as it was engraved in Stone and found in scrolls, it was 4 characters.  From the pictorial to the Paleo Hebrew to the English alphabet YHWH.  Simple as that folks!

YHWH-Picto

So who thought it so lovely an idea to hide His Name, to make it unspeakable and turn it to nothingness?  Who altered His Name so they could be the “secret” holders?  Altering it so the true vibration of His Name could not be spoken amongst common men and women? Those whom sought to steal their way into heaven, that’s who!  They whom believed/believe they are more righteous than the average person.  Yes, we’ve all been duped to such a high degree and believe you me, this continues through today.  For the pact was made for generations.

Well, we are here to fight against these evil doers.  To proclaim the Word of YHWH to all whom will listen and heed His call.  To alter His Name in any way, shape or form is an abomination unto Him and is blasphemous!  Shall we not heed His warnings or shall we follow the footsteps of those whom made a pact to hide His Name from the world?!?  We prefer not to disrespect our Father in that aspect, nor shall we follow the doctrine of devils that have become common practice today.

One thing that is for certain, Satan is having a field day with this “Name Game” he has been leading for quite some time now. And many have fallen into the snare of it all. For if it is on the net,in a book, or a Rabbi states it, or a pastor etc, it somehow must be real!

Running with the first things the eyes see and somehow the spirit or heart said…”Yes” to, has made many stand still in their walk, rather than move forward. How many are testing all spirits when it comes to YHWH? How many are just assuming it is of YHWH? In a world filled with deceptions, is it not wise to test, as scripture states so you won’t be counted among the fools and tares? Does YHWH not know that the enemy of souls is doing all he can to make everyone bow to him and not YHWH? And does not YHWH know how many will fall into the sparkling flattery and trickery Satan has to offer? Utilizing pretty photos with scripture printed upon them…with many different Names to represent YHWH? How does one choose? How does one know? For while one seeks, Satan is also seeking to steal you away….thus presenting before you many beautiful ways of deceiving you through mans studies and findings, through fables believed to be of YHWH and changing a most beautiful Name into nothingness.

Ecclesiastes 12:12
And further, by these, my son, be admonished:
of making many books there is no end;
and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Malachi 3:6
For I am YHWH, I change not;
therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

At this time, many are being consumed by all the versions being utilized throughout the internet. Rather than depending upon a box with a keyboard to teach one the truth, why not go to scripture! For within Scripture, all answers are given. If one does not have scriptures with YHWH in it, but the all familiar G-d, L-RD, etc within its pages, just retrain your brain with YHWH!
(Warning: Don’t lean on the countless interpretations of how to pronounce it) YHWH will guide you and the difference will amaze you! Grab a concordance, utilize the internet for referencing, as a dictionary if you must, but study past what someone else has found and seek root words and key meanings for yourself. Let YHWH open your eyes to see HIM and allow Him to close your eyes to all the fables Satan has lay before you!

Amos 8:12
And they shall wander from sea to sea,
and from the north even to the east,
they shall run to and fro to seek the word of YHWH,
and shall not find it.

Daniel 7:25
And he shall speak great words against the most High,
and shall wear out the saints of the most High,
and think to change times and laws:
and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

YHWH consistently speaks against other elohim’ names being spoken from our lips.

1Peter 5:8
Be sober,
be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion,
walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:

Exodus 23:13
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect:
and make no mention of the name of other elohim,
neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

Leviticus 19:12
And ye shall not swear by my name falsely,
neither shalt thou PROFANE the name of thy Elohim:
I am YHWH.

Ezekiel 39:7
So will I make my holy name known
in the midst of my people Israel;
and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more:
and the heathen shall know that I am the Holy One in Israel.

Erase all you have been taught. Clean the slate and give unto YHWH what belongs to Him and stop feeding Satan. That wimpy dude just snickers at us all anyways, so…stand up, stand tall and prove him WRONG! It’s easy to do when obedient to YHWH!


Listen to what YHWH has to say!

Listening

Let YHWH speak to you!
Listen to His Words! Meditate upon these verses
and let the Spirit teach you!
For the reward is great to those who listen to YHWH
and adhere to His Words.

Jeremiah 32:27
Behold, I am YHWH,
the Elohim of all flesh:
is there any thing too hard for me?

Zechariah 13:8-9
And it shall come to pass,
that in all the land, saith YHWH,
two parts therein shall be cut off and die;
but the third shall be left therein.
And I will bring the third part through the fire,

and will refine them as silver is refined,
and will try them as gold is tried:
they shall call on my name,
and I will hear them:
I will say, It is my people:
and they shall say, YHWH is my Elohim.

Leviticus 18:21
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech,
neither shalt thou profane the name of thy Elohim:
I am YHWH.

Isaiah 42:8
I am YHWH:
that is my name:
and my glory will I not give to another,
neither my praise to graven images.

Isaiah 43:10
Ye are my witnesses, saith YHWH,
and my servant whom I have chosen:
that ye may know and believe me,
and understand that I am he:
before me there was no El formed,
neither shall there be after me

Isaiah 44:6
Thus saith YHWH the King of Israel,
And his redeemer YHWH of hosts;
I am the first, and I am the last;
and beside me there is no elohim.

Isaiah 45:21
Tell ye, and bring them near;
yea, let them take counsel together:
who hath declared this from ancient time?
who hath told it from that time?
have not I YHWH?
and there is no Elohim else beside me;
a just El and a Saviour;
there is none besides me.

Jeremiah 1:19
And they shall fight against thee;
but they shall not prevail against thee;
for I am with thee, saith YHWH,
to deliver thee.

Jeremiah 9:24
But let him that glorieth glory in this,
that he understandeth and knoweth me,
that I am YHWH
which exercise
lovingkindness,
judgment,
and righteousness, in the earth:
for in these things I delight,
saith YHWH.

Jeremiah 15:6
Thou hast forsaken me, saith YHWH,
thou art gone backward:
therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee,
and destroy thee;
I am weary with repenting.

Jeremiah 23:30-32
Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets,
saith YHWH,
that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
Behold, I am against the prophets,
saith YHWH,
that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams,
saith YHWH, and do tell them,
and cause my people to err by their lies,
and by their lightness;
yet I sent them not,
nor commanded them:
therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith YHWH.

Ezekiel 6:13
Then shall ye know that I am YHWH,
when their slain men
shall be among their idols round about their altars,
upon every high hill,
in all the tops of the mountains,
and under every green tree,
and under every thick oak,
the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.

Ezekiel 11:12
And ye shall know that I am YHWH:
for ye have not walked in my statutes,
neither executed my judgments,
but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.
(Tis the season right now! Who will listen to YHWH?)

Ezekiel 12:15
And they shall know that I am YHWH,
when I shall scatter them among the nations,
and disperse them in the countries.

1Corinthians 8:3
But if any man love YHWH,
the same is known of him.

James 1:12
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the crown of life,
which YHWH hath promised to them that love him

Hebrews 12:7
If ye endure chastening,
YHWH dealeth with you as with sons;
for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Luke 10:22
All things are delivered to me of my Father:
and no man knoweth who the Son is,
but the Father;
and who the Father is, but the Son,
and he to whom the Son will reveal him.


Take a walk through Amos 5

Dig Amos

This week I have been led to really study Amos 5 and what it has to reveal to us.  Within it, there are connections throughout scripture that completely back it up.

Dig into Amos 5! It has a lot to say!

So much so, it should shake a modern day Christian to the core!!!
But, alas, few will listen to YHWH. It appears that most would rather have fun and “good company” than follow our Heavenly Father above…
who needs nothing but your obedience and devotion to Him!!!

How many churches celebrate things from Halloween, Thanksgiving and from Christmas, Valentines Day through to having Easter egg hunts on Easter etc?
Is that your church? Then they are NOT teaching you properly! They are ignoring YHWH’s Word completely!

From Malachi to Jeremiah to 1Kings to Matthew and more, each book has witnesses, within their verses, showing us what our eyes must see to come out of her.  Perhaps a good study into Amos will help one to witness to the lost flock.

Let’s take a look at a few verses and some witnesses.

Amos 5:21
I hate,
I despise your feast days,
and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

Why does YHWH hate them? Because they are NOT for Him, but to Baa’l (Aka Lord)

Elijah speaks of this in 1Kings 18:22
Then said EliYah unto the people,
I, even I only, remain a prophet of YHWH;
–> but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.<–

In Deuteronomy 12:30-32 it states…
Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them,
after that they be destroyed from before thee;
and that thou enquire not after their elohim,
saying, How did these nations serve their elohim?
even so will I do likewise.
Thou shalt not do so unto YHWH thy Elohim:
for every abomination to YHWH, which he hateth,
have they done unto their elohim;
For even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their elohim.

That’s pretty explanatory in itself and it backs up Amos 5.

So who are all these churches praising, singing to, celebrating evil days to? Let YHWH speak again to you through Amos and tell you how HE feels about it all!

Amos 5:23
Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs;
for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.

How many go to church to hear the choir, or see the band or the stage performances their churches have conjured up?
Believing they are singing to our Heavenly Father, yet are not. YHWH states loud and clear…he will NOT hear the melodies played. So all this praising G-d and singing to J—s is for naught.

Even Jeremiah warns us all in verses 23:1-6
“Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith YHWH.”

And Messiah warns us as well in Acts 20:29
For I know this,
that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you,
not sparing the flock.

Not sparing the flock people! Who are the flock? Look around you, they are everywhere! Are you counted amongst them?

angry-peacock-300x300

Yet again who will see this and take it to heart, when it is so much fun to sing, dance and praise a false deity together!  Celebrating false days together and gathering in joyous sharing of love and happiness.  Yet not realizing whom they are giving their allegiance to.  Therefore, when one comes along to rebuke their false ways, they huff up like peacocks and spread their wings and tote their heads in defiance, ready to rumble.  How many stop to listen to the message, but instead defend their traditions?

For as Amos 5:10 states…
“They hate him that rebuketh in the gate,
and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.”

And Proverbs 16:5 states
Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to YHWH:
though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

Since it is easier to follow the peer pressure of today rather than humble oneself and be ridiculed for standing up for the truth of the WORD, many have handed over their allegiance to satan and happily so!  Joining hand in hand while doing it as well!  That’s pretty scary if you ask me!

There are passages all throughout the scriptures that reveal to us how to scope out false teachers. Is anyone paying attention?  Amos warns us of what will happen to us if we listen to the false teachers.  Here are some scripture verses to look at.

Matthew 5:19
Whosoever therefore
shall break one of these least commandments,
and shall teach men so,
he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:
but whosoever shall do and teach them,
the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Jeremiah 5:31
The prophets prophesy falsely,
and the priests bear rule by their means;
and my people love to have it so:
and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Malachi 2:1-2
And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.
If ye will not hear,
and if ye will not lay it to heart,
to give glory unto my name,
saith YHWH of hosts,
I will even send a curse upon you,
and I will curse your blessings:
yea, I have cursed them already,
because ye do not lay it to heart.

Has anyone paid attention to how many church leaders are coming down?  Being caught in adultery, stealing from their congregations, molesting children etc?  How many are losing members or funding? How many churches have been burnt down in fires or taken down in earthquakes etc?  Does not YHWH protect that which is His and destroy that which is not? (Psalms 91) Yet, Satan seems to protect many whom do evil by simply removing them from one building and placing them into another to continue in their lies. They are abominations unto YHWH!

Proverbs 17:15
He that justifieth the wicked,
and he that condemneth the just,
even they both are abomination to YHWH.

Deuteronomy 25:16
For all that do such things,
and all that do unrighteously,
are an abomination unto YHWH thy Elohim.

We have been warned over and over, yet how many claim to be saved and yet continue to give to Satan what belongs to YHWH?  The pastors and ministers have been warned, the gentiles and heathen have been warned.  All guided, yet gone astray.  Millions begging for the return of J—s, yet not realizing what in fact that means.

Amos 5:18-20
Woe unto you that desire the day of YHWH!
to what end is it for you?
the day of YHWH is darkness, and not light.

As if a man did flee from a lion,
and a bear met him;
or went into the house,
and leaned his hand on the wall,
and a serpent bit him.

Shall not the day of YHWH be darkness, and not light?
even very dark, and no brightness in it?

Now look at vs. 19 regarding leaning on the wall of the house.  Which house is this?  Could it possibly be the walls of church buildings?  For when the hand leans upon the wall, a serpent bites him.  For as we can see, many denominations are abiding upon this earth.  With many false teachings being followed and their congregations growing.  The most important teaching of all to be taught by all priests is the Name of YHWH, yet few, a mere few, teach how important His Name is.  For His Name is the cup of salvation we must drink.  Therefore, I could conclude that the churches are just that house.  For many churches teach their congregation to call “J—s” to come.  Calling Baa’l to come down and save them.  Is that not a snake biting the hand?  Especially the hands that give their tithes to these buildings and teachers gladly.

So what is that expression?  Don’t bite the hand that feeds you?
When you feed Satan, you will get bitten!
Seems we have a great warning here in Amos and it is being fully ignored.


March Forward

Hi all!
Minister QuietBuck and I have been very busy these past several months.  Between a move and fixing up a new home, work and using other venues, we have not been on this blog.  Albeit, throughout our time away from here, we have been still sharing the Word of YHWH.

We continue to witness a great falling away which saddens us deeply.  Therefore, I decided that it was time to make a new post.
I will title it “March Forward“.

stock-footage-many-businessman-marching

How many understand that the battlefield that is churning has many soldiers and warriors who believe they are marching for the same elohim, but are not?
How many grasp that whatever scriptures they hold will either aid them tremendously or hold them back and feed them death rather than life?
Does anyone fully understand what it means to allow the Spirit to guide you?
(And test ALL spirits to see if they are of YHWH. For many spirits are deceiving through VERY convincing and cunning ways)

Jeremiah 18:15
Because my people hath forgotten me,
they have burned incense to vanity,
and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths,
to walk in paths,
in a way not cast up;

(How many churches do this ?)

Does anyone understand this? Really understand this?

Isaiah 45:20
Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together,
ye that are escaped of the nations:
they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image,
and pray unto an el that cannot save.

(How many understand which deity this speaks of and what is the set up wood?)

Do you understand it is not only these whom we battle to reveal the true Word to, but also amongst ourselves who do actually understand whom Isaiah 45:20 is speaking about.

So how do we come to the same conclusion on His Name? The clues are all over the place.

I challenge anyone to test all spirits regarding any name they are using besides YHWH.
(No vowels added…Only Y H W H…יהוה)
Test where you heard that version.

Did you hear it on a video, is a man teaching it?
Did you read it on a blog or a website?

A heavy clue that one is not a true teacher…is there a donate button on the site or brochure?
Really?
We need to donate to hear YHWH more clearly or be more blessed?
Because oddly enough, a good majority of folks out there believe if they give their money to their church, preacher or a ministry, it will bless them highly.
(Prosperity preachings anyone?)

Did you run out to the library or bookstore?
Did you change religious views because of the roots of the religion?
For reading can cause great confusion.
Research can as well.
Yes, you can be led to research but just be very very cautious of what you allow in.

Ecclesiastes 12:12
And further, by these,
my son, be admonished:
of making many books there is no end;
and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Did you allow man to teach you rather than YHWH Himself?
Did you listen to one who went to theology school?
Do you understand who began these schools and WHY?
The answer may not be what you think.
Therefore it is inherent that one Allows YHWH to be the Only teacher and No Other.

Mark 13:22
For false Messiahs and false prophets shall rise,
and shall shew signs and wonders,
to seduce,
if it were possible,
even the elect.

And lastly, do you call upon another elohim because the gathering of people make you feel good? You feel safe? The numbers are high? You can celebrate new traditions in His Name now? They tickle ears in a new fashion you never felt before? There are many who can’t Wait for J to come down here. Whoever taught them that…as I’m sure we’ve all read the parroted praises of “Come L–d  J—s, Come!” Oh boy…..

Amos 5:18-26
Woe unto you that desire the day of YHWH!
to what end is it for you?
the day of YHWH is darkness, and not light.
As if a man did flee from a lion,
and a bear met him;
or went into the house,
and leaned his hand on the wall,
AND A SERPENT BIT HIM.
Shall not the day of YHWH be darkness, and not light?
even very dark, and no brightness in it?

I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?
But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your elohim, which ye made to yourselves.

The Old Testament was Not done away with. It’s the trick of our greatest enemy, for he does not want you to find the real salvation. He wants us all to gather together in big happy crowds to support his cause. He wants to target individuals whom fight him face first and create hate towards them. satan is a people pleaser. A rather whimpy one at that. Why a people pleaser? Cuz he wants you to feeeeeeeeeeeeel oh so good folks. He wants to reel you in with a sweet tasting candy. Come on. Take that next step towards me…one more little one…one more. THAT IS HIS GOAL!
That mean old trickster wants to take each of YHWH’s children one by one and hold them in bondage and captivity. So when one finds “the path” he will bring sweeter candy and exciting adventures to veer off it.

He will use ANYONE and ANYTHING to get you away from YHWH.
satan will utilize your parents, your friends, your spouse, your child, your church, even your own bible you study from! He will cause division by changing the spelling of YHWH’s Name.  He wants each of us to feel enraged towards each other rather than united under YHWH.  See, he will utilize every little thing that will make you mad to get you to sin.  As he giggles and sneers at your attempts.

He also wants you to feel so loved and so safe that you can’t imagine life without your church, your friends, your community- celebrating his days (Holidays from xmas to easter to birthdays etc) so you do not focus truly on YHWH. He wants to gather everyone up so he can laugh at YHWH and say…SEE? They all thought I was you and gave their allegiance to me! SUCKERS!

Do you want to be counted in that?
Can you see the battlefield?

Matthew 7:14
Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and FEW there be that find it.

Jeremiah 6:16
Thus saith YHWH,
Stand ye in the ways,
and see,
and ask for the old paths,
where is the good way,
and walk therein,
and ye shall find rest for your souls.
But they said,
We will not walk therein.

Seek past the old paths you believe are correct.
Seek before Moses’s journey.
Seek the wisdom of YHWH through His first Words to man.
Allow Him to reach into the depths of your soul to teach you.
For man has destroyed knowingly and unknowingly by listening to satan.

Put on the armor!
The battle is not over folks!

Ephesians 6:10-18
Finally, my brethren, be strong in YHWH, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of Elohim, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of Elohim, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of YHWH:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

We use the internet to glorify  YHWH.   To share what He reveals to us.  To give hope to those struggling and to inspire those in their searches.  May His Spirit open your eyes to see the blatant lies the enemy continues to put forth.  May there be a freedom in your findings.

YHWH bless.


The Rich Man & the Maid

MaidOnce upon a time there was a very rich man who lived in a very exquisite mansion.  For many years his maid, Elsie, kept up his home meticulously.  Not one day went by that he had to instruct her or ask anything of her other than simple chit chat.  She was a treasure to him.

Elsie eventually met a man and they courted for many months. Then one day Elsie approached the rich man and told him she would have to leave his home and resign for she was to be married.  Though he was very excited for her, he dreaded finding someone to replace her. No one could compare to Elsie nor the work she could do in his mind.

Many maid prospects came to his mansion.  Day after day he sought someone whom he thought would be as good as Elsie.  Weeks went by before he found someone.  A young awkward looking woman named Olivia.  She highly impressed him with her mannerism and seriousness.  The rich
man felt relieved in finding a good replacement for Elsie.

The rich man showed Olivia the mansion room by room.  When it came to his special room, he explained in great detail how to care for it, dust it and asked her to please be careful of each item in it. He stressed to leave everything as it was and just ensure it was immaculate above all other rooms.  Olivia asked why the room was so special, he grunted, “Just make sure this room is perfect!” and off he went.

Months went by and the rich man seemed quite pleased with Olivia’s work.  He only had to remind her a few times of small duties missed.  This was expected.

One day, however, Olivia had not completed laundry on time and a particular pair of pants was not cleaned nor pressed.  One the rich man had planned to wear to an affair.  This disturbed the man and he scolded Olivia for her negligence.  Olivia promised she would not allow that to happen again.

Within the next week, Olivia displayed many signs of negligence highly annoying the man to the point of wanting to fire her.  She would spend hours in his special room making it spotless while the other rooms were ignored. Though she apologized up and down and promised to do better with the other rooms throughout the mansion, each day her actions were worse.  She also began to alter the rich man’s special room.  Soon it became a beautiful sanctuary filled with vibrant flowers, new white linen curtains and new white furniture. She removed pictures from the walls and replaced them with mirrors.  She moved his books and placed candles throughout the room. This infuriated him!

Eventually the rich man felt as if he would literally kill her.  For her attitude changed and her work was horrid in his eyes.  Dust was piling up, fingerprints everywhere.  Yet that one room kept changing and was the only sparkling room in the mansion.

He was fed up!  But he also knew it would be weeks if not months before he would find another replacement.  He was so angry he went to his grandfather who was a very wise and gentle man.

“Grandfather!” He exclaimed.  “I have this maid, Olivia, who I want to kill!  Literally kill her Grandfather!!!  She was wonderful in the beginning.  Not as good as Elsie was, but still, a decent replacement, or so I thought.  She has turned into a lazy, horrible, dirty maid.  I can’t stand her! Not only that Grandfather, but she altered my favorite room.  My thinking room.  The room I meditate in.  The one I pray in.  The one room I cling to after a hard day of work! She changed the curtains so I can now see outside!  She put mirrors where my hunting photos, awards, degrees and trophies were.  Do you KNOW HOW HARD I WORKED TO EARN THOSE?  She put candles everywhere.  I am burning mad inside and I…I HATE her for what she has done!!! She does not do things my way and I can’t stand her any longer!”

His Grandfather chuckled.

“My dear boy, you want to kill an angel.”
“What?!” Exclaimed the rich man.

His Grandfather continued.  “My ignorant Grandson.  You know not when a gift is given to you.  For this is an angel in disguise.  For when you are tired from a long day, she has placed mirrors around your room to show you who you are so you may ponder and reflect. You don’t need degrees to show who you are or prove who you are, my dear boy.  Your reflection alone reveals that.  The books, my dear Grandson, she removed so you would not be distracted during prayer and deep thoughts.  She placed the candles so you can rest in the light.  She made it white so you would feel clean.  She removed any items that would distract you from your concentration and you want to kill her?  Why I’d say you are the luckiest man alive! This maid certainly loves you dear boy.” Smiling and chuckling at his Grandson’s reaction, he left the room.

The rich man was very confused.  For this is not the response he expected.

So,  he returned to his mansion in full confusion.  He went to his special room and thought upon what his Grandfather had said.  As he gazed into one of the mirrors he saw an angry man.  A pressed mouth, cheeks taught and eyes almost black with rage.  As he stared at himself he cocked his head to the right and stared deeply into his own eyes.  The angered squints became curious.  He thought to himself “Do I really appear like this? Am I really such an angry soul?”

He continued to look around the room.  He stared at the linen curtains and realized that they allowed the beauty of his garden to be seen within the walls.  Then he looked at the candles all lit and realized each one was placed in a specific spot to enhance the warmth of the room.  As he eventually sat on one of the couches, it was the most comfortable cushion he ever sat on.  He felt as if he was sitting on a cloud.  As he sat and looked around the room, tears filled his eyes.

The moral of the story is…true love comes in forms that we may not understand.  Therefore we must never assume and react upon impulse.


The Breath of YHWH

Ah the sweetness of life
The breath of YHWH….

breath

Like a soft whisper moving in the breeze
a spirit so subtle enters within the soul.
releasing waves so strong
the heart cannot help to sing a new song.
