THE END OF THE SOAP OPERAS

 

Wayne rhema 2/8/2011  SWEET AND LOW

Saw: I saw God step out of an elevator totally covered in suds take hold of me and hug me close to His heart. I became covered in the suds.

 

Saw and Heard: I was squatting down and hugging a picture of something that was many shades of pink and as I was trying to understand what it was I heard "Sweet and Low."

 


 

Soap Suds

 

RHEMA 1/16/96 OVERKILL IN WASHING IS SELF CONDEMNATION

 

PARABLE: Today while I was pouring some anti-bacteria soap in our dispenser, I poured too much in and it gushed all over my hands and sink. I remembered my old dreams of washing and washing with too much soap. They were symbolical of guilt and condemnation. Looking at the soap all over the counter I realized I was under too much strain of recent condemnations.

 

Rom 8:1-3 NKJV

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin:

 

John 3:17-20 NKJV

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 "He who believes in Him is not condemned ; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation , that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

 

John 8:10-11 NKJV

"Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?" 11 She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more."

 


 

 

SANDY RHEMA  10/18/06  THE END OF THE SOAP OPERAS

HEARD:  My life is complicated.  I think that us soap operas have finally done all that we can.  Thatís to playing with the kids.  Thatís my banner.  And thatís the wall of faith.  Friendships made and Iím changing.  Now what? Just find me laughing.

SANDY COMMENT SOAP OPERAS

The following was circulating the internet a few years ago and I re-read it 3 days ago.  When Wayne heard about the soap suds, I knew it was the Word of the Lord.

 

When I think about the totally hilarious and futile patterns people go through to enforce others to comply to their will, the following story has to be the ultimate parable of what a micromanaging person goes through trying to connect with a free spirited person.  Who wins in the end?

 

HOTEL SOAP OPERA

Attached is actual correspondence which occurred between a London hotel's staff and one of its guests. The London hotel involved submitted this to the Sunday Times.

 

---------

Dear Maid,

Please do not leave any more of those little bars of soap in my bathroom

since I have brought my own bath-sized Dial. Please remove the six

unopened little bars from the shelf under the medicine chest and

another three in the shower soap dish. They are in my way.

Thank you,

S. Berman

--------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Room 635,

I am not your regular maid. She will be back tomorrow, Thursday, from her

day off. I took the 3 hotel soaps out of the shower soap dish as you

requested. The 6 bars on your shelf I took out of your way and put on

top of your Kleenex dispenser in case you should change your mind. This

leaves only the 3 bars I left today which my instructions from the

management is to leave 3 soaps daily. I hope this is satisfactory.

Kathy, Relief Maid

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Maid --

I hope you are my regular maid. Apparently Kathy did not tell you about

my note to her concerning the little bars of soap. When I got back to

my room this evening I found you had added 3 little Camays to the shelf

under my medicine cabinet. I am going to be here in the hotel

for two weeks and have brought my own bath-size Dial so I won't need

those 6 little Camays which are on the shelf. They are in my way when

shaving, brushing teeth, etc.

Please remove them.

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Berman,

My day off was last Wed. so the relief maid left 3 hotel soaps which we

are instructed by the management. I took the 6 soaps which were in your

way on the shelf and put them in the soap dish where your Dial was. I put

the Dial in the medicine cabinet for your convenience. I didn't remove

the 3 complimentary soaps which are always placed inside the medicine

cabinet for all new check-ins and which you did not object to when you

checked in last Monday. Please let me know if I can of further assistance.

Your regular maid,

Dotty

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Berman,

The assistant manager, Mr. Kensedder, informed me this A.M. that you

called him last evening and said you were unhappy with your maid service.

I have assigned a new girl to your room. I hope you will accept

my apologies for any past inconvenience. If you have any future

complaints please contact me so I can give it my personal attention. Call

extension 1108 between 8AM and 5PM.

Thank you.

Elaine Carmen

Housekeeper

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Miss Carmen,

It is impossible to contact you by phone since I leave the hotel for

business at 745 AM and don't get back before 530 or 6PM. That's the

reason I called Mr. Kensedder last night. You were already off duty. I

only asked Mr. Kensedder if he could do anything about those little bars

of soap. The new maid you assigned me must have thought I was a new

check-in today, since she left another 3 bars of hotel soap in my

medicine cabinet along with her regular delivery of 3 bars on the bath-room shelf. In just 5 days here I have accumulated 24 little bars of soap. Why are you doing

this to me?

S. Berman

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Berman,

Your maid, Kathy, has been instructed to stop delivering soap to your

room and remove the extra soaps. If I can be of further assistance,

please call extension 1108 between 8AM and 5PM. Thank you,

Elaine Carmen,

Housekeeper

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Kensedder,

My bath-size Dial is missing. Every bar of soap was taken from my room

including my own bath-size Dial. I came in late last night and had to

call the bellhop to bring me 4 little Cashmere Bouquets.

S. Berman

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Berman,

I have informed our housekeeper, Elaine Carmen, of your soap problem.

I cannot understand why there was no soap in your room since our Maids

are instructed to leave 3 bars of soap each time they service a room. The

situation will be rectified immediately. Please accept my apologies for

the inconvenience.

Martin L. Kensedder

Assistant Manager

------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mrs. Carmen,

Who the (blank) left 54 little bars of Camay in my room? I came in last

night and found 54 little bars of soap. I don't want 54 little bars of

Camay. I want my one (blank) bar of bath-size Dial. Do you realize I have 54

bars of soap in here. All I want is my bath size Dial.

Please give me back my bath-size Dial.

S. Berman

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Berman,

You complained of too much soap in your room so I had them removed.

Then you complained to Mr. Kensedder that all your soap was missing so I

personally returned them. The 24 Camays which had been taken and the 3

Camays you are supposed to receive daily (sic). I don't know anything

about the 4 Cashmere Bouquets. Obviously your maid, Kathy,

did not know I had returned your soaps so she also brought 24 Camays plus

the 3 daily Camays. I don't know where you got the idea this hotel issues

bath-size Dial. I was able to locate some bath-size Ivory which I left in

your room.

Elaine Carmen

Housekeeper

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Mrs. Carmen,

Just a short note to bring you up-to-date on my latest soap inventory.

As of today I possess:

- On shelf under medicine cabinet -

18 Camay in 4 stacks of 4 and 1 stack of 2.

- On Kleenex dispenser -

11 Camay in 2 stacks of 4 and 1 stack of 3.

- On bedroom dresser -

1 stack of 3 Cashmere Bouquet,

1 stack of 4 hotel-size Ivory,

and 8 Camay in 2 stacks of 4.

- Inside medicine cabinet -

14 Camay in 3 stacks of 4 and 1 stack of 2.

- In shower soap dish - 6 Camay, very moist.

- On northeast corner of tub -

1 Cashmere Bouquet, slightly used.

- On northwest corner of tub -

6 Camays in 2 stacks of 3.

Please ask Kathy when she services my room to make sure the stacks are

neatly piled and dusted. Also, please advise her that stacks of more than

4 have a tendency to tip. May I suggest that my bedroom window sill is

not in use and will make an excellent spot for future soap deliveries.

One more item, I have purchased another bar of bath-sized Dial which I am

keeping in the hotel vault in order to avoid further misunderstandings.

WORD TO PONDER:  THE END OF THE SOAP OPERAS

I AM thoroughly purging the sons of Levi with My soap.  I will have a pure bride without spot or wrinkle.  Iron sharpens iron, relationships clash as the days are washed through the soap of repentance and the water of My Word.  In so doing, this has cleansed relationships between parents and children, ministries and relationships with Me. 

 

Do not allow the condemnation of your past to grip you any more.  Come out of the suds and straight into My arms of love!  You are washed and cleansed dear one!  Enter thou into the joy of the Lord!

 

Mal 3:2-3 NKJV

"But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like launderers' soap.  He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness.

 

Heb 10:22 NKJV

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
