The multi-faceted ways that we express HIS story are keys that open the heart of each individual. When the right expression is shown and the heart is opened, they become like a house with no electricity and suddenly all the lights come on and the current flows.
Music begins to play. The kitchen comes alive with the aromas of tantalizing prepared meals. Laughter highlights the air and reverberates in the atmosphere. Joy is unleashed. Songs come alive. Air flows as Holy Spirit circulates in every room and removes the stale and stagnant air that once was. Even the gardens that were left abandoned, suddenly spring forth with beauty and color.
This might remind you of the story of Beauty and the Beast. The beast was under a curse and after going through a completely humbling experience, he saw the reality of what is true. The grandeur of the world’s offer of riches, entertainment and self-elevation no longer had any hold on him. He realized there was a treasure much greater and it didn’t require money to obtain it.
In the story, you think the beast has come to this revelation too late, when it fact, his death to his former self made it possible for LOVE to raise him to LIFE, the LIFE he was created to live.
Just like in the story when the last petal fell from the rose, a representation of the time remaining for him to have the revelation and receive his ONE TRUE LOVE’S kiss, time is growing short for the curse to be lifted from those still in darkness.
The Lord is sending out HIS BEAUTIES, those willing to love the unlovable beasts. They haven’t realized their true identity. They don’t even realize they are captive to various constraints and bondages. You cannot love them from an earthly, carnal place. The Lord says, you must be filled with His love in order to pour out, that they may taste and see just how good He is.
The table is being readied. The final preparations are being done. Are you, yourself, ready? He is sending those who belong to the KINGdom, to go out into the highways and byways to gather those who want to sit at the table. It will require keys and ONE (Holy Spirit) to accompany you as you send out the invitations. The keys are the expressions of Abba, Father in you. He made you unique. You will be a BEAUTY to someone in need. Ask yourself, “Am I using my talents, my special skill set, to open the hearts of those in need? Can I love the unlovable and see them as they are meant to be through the eyes of ABBA?”
In closing, remember Belle had a special relationship with her father. She risked everything for him. She purposely put herself in his place to carry out the task of loving the unlovable beast. Since Jesus Christ has already paid the price here on earth and now sits at the right hand of the father, we have the role of carrying HIS love and HIS message to those who have not yet heard.
I encourage you to be still and KNOW the FATHER, know HIS heart, know the depth of HIS LOVE for you. Get lost in HIS LOVE because once you do, you will truly be FOUND. At the realization of being found, we cannot help but want others to know too.
Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ Luke 14:16-17
Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will dress himself for service and have them recline at the table, and he will come and serve them. Luke 12:37
