ZENITH KALEO - Divine Calling: Forgiveness - A Key To Your Destiny
Updated: Jul 27, 2019
Awhile back I wrote a song. It was given to me by the Holy Spirit who in itself/himself is contained the very animating power of God relative to your divine destiny. You need this power in your life, infusing you with eternally based life, flowing in a stream that knows no concept of an 'end'.
It is this Spirit, this energizing and animating power of influence, that Jesus Christ offers to restore and reconcile us to, that Spirit being the very essence of God Himself in all of His infinite power of pure life that is unmixed and unmingled with anything diverse from pure life on an available scale of infinity, and in the life is power that too is infinite on a scale equivalent with God, and then there is love, because all that God is in life and power is defined by Jesus and his apostles in a single word, and that word is love. Imagine that. God, the supreme and infinite power, is love.
God is love, and the first level of absolute love God wants you or I to know is the love He has for us individually. What I can assure you of, is that it is deeper than you can imagine.
Here is a fact. God loves you and created you with an amazing and stunning plan for your life, so full of wonder and adventure that your story, already written in the Spirit, is indeed an epic story, waiting for you to connect with in all of its fullness.
It is that story that we call 'destiny'. It is that story that we refer to as your 'calling' or from the Greek word of the New Testament (the New Order of divine interaction between God and man established by Jesus Christ) we refer to as your 'Kaleo' (see this blog for explanation).
So, back to the song. Here are some of the lyrics;
"Take your harps down, from their weeping willows.
Don't look back. Yesterday's gone. Don't look back.
Yesterday is gone. Let it go.
You can't step into the future, while you're trapped inside a rear-view mirror."
In The Kaleo Method of Success we very thoroughly examine the past, but as the song says, so that we might 'Let it go, as you can't step into the future, while you're trapped inside a rear-view mirror."
It is for the purpose of saving you and I from the negatives that have been pushed upon us by various experiences, including spiritual elements that sometimes form those experiences or at the least capitalize on them, and also people involved in that mix who have been used in it, all these things which have conspired against you and I in order to keep the God created us from our powerful and amazing fulfillment, that we visit and and purposely heal parts of the past.
Snares are a great way to describe these negatives. Sometimes you're caught in a place or in an area of your life and you don't really know why, but the snare is there just the same. It is important to break that thing that holds you in check, restricting the liberty of your God breathed destiny.
There is another song I was given that speaks to the snares which was made into a Youtube Video which addresses these snares and the freedom we can know apart from them.
Let's Talk About Forgiveness
This brings us to the liberation we will receive through the powerful force of forgiveness.
God is not limited to the present. Time itself is a created thing and just as the artist has full power over his or her creation, the same is true with anything and everything God has created, including what we consider to be this thing called time.
The Creator or Artist is greater than the creation, being beyond it, and though creation reflects the artist's hand, the artist is not the creation, but remains the power beyond it, greater than the art.
This is the way it is with God and time. He being 'greater than', God is not restricted 'by'. This means that God being unrestricted by time or space for that matter, is at once in the past, here now in the present, and at the same time is in the future too (which helps explain why prophecy works).
Forgiveness is the divine mechanism which releases you and I from the snares that have captured our soul, keeping us locked into prior negative experiences whose images, often unbeknownst to us consciously, have trapped us into accepting imposed definitions of who it is we seem to be that in fact do not coincide with the stunning person God has decreed us to be.
What does this mean?
In the book of beginnings, The Book of Genesis, we find in the ancient writings the first use of the word 'forgive' in reference to Joseph and his brothers who out of jealously had faked his death and then sold him out to the slave markets of Egypt. Not a very brotherly thing to do, right?
Here is a short segment of that story:
"This is what you are to say to Joseph: 'I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly.' Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father." When their message came to him, Joseph wept." (Gen 50:17 NIV)
Joseph was a powerful man. His brothers were asking him to release them from the negatives of the past they had caused him by their attacks and the snares they had laid against his person, brought on by their jealously over his father's love for Joseph (I hope you get that last point).
The Hebrew word 'forgive' is the word 'nasa' (like the U.S. space program) and means: to lift up and to lift off, to take and carry away, to sweep something away and out, to be (as a person) lifted up and raised, to be supported, sustained, carried and exalted.
Yes, it is the same word we use in reference to our U.S. space program called NASA or the 'National Space and Aeronautics Administration' which is pretty tricky, don't you think?
In either case, it involves the science of overcoming drag against efficiency so that maximum power and velocity might be achieved thus overcoming the negative pull of gravity so one might explore the high places of the ether and traverse the infinity of the universe. It means to achieve 'lift off'.
Can God erase for you the negatives of the past?
Is it possible through the vehicle of forgiveness to rewrite the story and put you and I in a position to achieve our own maximum velocity in regard to our amazing created purpose?
The answer is yes. He holds that power...and is extending it to us that we might succeed in life at the highest conceivable levels with divine power.
What I am saying is, just exactly as God has promised to us on the foundation of Jesus Christ, and what has taken place through love on our behalf, the power of God can reach into us, touch all of the negatives that suppress and oppress us, and wipe away every tear from our eyes.
The scriptures teach us God is a 'just God' (see Isaiah 45:21). The word just quite literally means 'to adjust something'. What this tells us is God...He goes around fixing things. This includes things that are broken inside you and I, keeping us from experiencing 'lift off' in our lives.
Yes, this is possible. It happens every day. People in need of healing come and receive the caress of God upon their lives experiencing a death and end to the power of those former negatives and a rising from all of those micro deaths of the past into a spiritual/soul healing, projecting them into complete newness of life, which continues to unfold within them day after day.
It is when this happens that the adventure for which they were created truly begins.
Let's close today with the words of Isaiah the prophetic seer who saw the coming of this day;
"On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine-- the best of meats and the finest of wines.
On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people's disgrace from all the earth.
The LORD has spoken.
In that day they will say, "Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation."" (Isa 25:6-9 NIV)
You can't step into your future if you're trapped inside that rear-view mirror.
Let's get you out.
Hey! How about another YouTube Video, this time 'Amazing Grace'.
A little different version than you might be familiar with.
