RHEMA 11/15/11   DUTY OR PASSION:  MASTER & HUSBAND, MARTHA & MARY

 

HEARD:  Keep My Words in your heart.  Ponder them.    She must be a driven person or she would make a good wife.

 

Luke 10:38-42 NKJV

Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." 41 And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.  42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."

 

DUTY OR PASSION:

In this season, the Lord has been speaking to me about duty in my relationship with Him, much like Hosea 2:16, the difference between knowing Him as Master vs Husband.  I have been faithful to perform the duties in my calling as an intercessor, deliverer and scribe.  When a wife marries and has His children (callings, etc), often the husband gives his wife over to raise the children and much of her work ethic becomes task oriented and duty bound and the husband takes the back seat.  This is true of many in ministry.

 

Hosea 2:14 is a place the church has been since the late 90's, possibly 97.  We are now in verse 15, interceding and pressing towards vs 16.  (This whole issue delves deeper into the aspect of religion vs relationship, as well as the counterfeit vs genuine Holy Spirit and gifts.)

 

Hos 2:14-16  NKJV

14 'Therefore, behold, I will allure her, Will bring her into the wilderness, And speak comfort to her.  15 I will give her her vineyards from there, And the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; She shall sing there, As in the days of her youth, As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.  16 "And it shall be, in that day," Says the Lord, "That you will call Me 'My Husband,'  And no longer call Me 'My Master.'

 

On a deeper le/el, when a person performs out of duty, they are NOT grateful for whatever they are duty bound over.  And they certainly dont want to encourage it unless they are driven by performance.

"...Martha, youíre going to have to go beyond your responsibility, and not just with the dishes. If you canít lay down the responsibilities for a while, you will miss the moment, and you wonít be able to go beyond into the whole season.Ē

Similarly, He is saying to us, ďYouíre going to have to go beyond the responsibility you have for your kids, for your house, for your business. Youíre going to have to come on in at the right moment and hear Me, because Iím going to give you marching orders over how to be responsible in the next season.Ē Some of us have great responsibilities, inside and outside of the house, but at certain times He says, ďIf you donít get beyond your day-to-day responsibilities, you will miss what Iím saying. You might be the key to what I am saying and whom Iím saying it to!..Ē

 

CONFIRMATION 11/19/11 FROM A READER TO MY FACEBOOK WALL

"We once were a barren wilderness, dead and dry. Our lives didn't simply wander in a wilderness, we WERE a wilderness to the Lord. But then, grace made a Rose to blossom in the desert. Christ came in and watered our souls. Now we are a garden, bearing fruit and bringing Him pleasure. Eden's paradise is within you, and i...t is all for Him. "My darling Bride, you are My private paradise Fastened to My heart. You are a secret spring That no one else can haveó My bubbling fountain Hidden from the public. What a perfect partner to Me!" Song of Songs 4:12 The Passion Translation"
