To Hear and Obey

In this day and age there are many voices clamoring to be heard. Everyone has an answer and an opinion. But what if there were only one voice to be heard? Only one opinion? I along with other like minded people have been seeking, knocking and asking. For a surety there are two voices speaking in the world today. One voice is saying "take your life in your own hands as you see your own needs". The other voice is saying "give up your life, follow me, give me control of your life". The first voice mentioned here seems to be the most popular. So the obvious decision here is to hear the second voice "give up your life" and go with the minority. For with this voice if we follow will lead to a very narrow road. This road is not the scenic route either. Most maps will tell you that it doesn't even exist. In fact if you travel this path everyone around you will do everything in their power to get you off of it. I sincerely hope you have already made a decision to take this road, and since so few choose it may we see each other often in the fellowship on it. If you have not made this decision I pray that you would follow this journey. Shalom, Chris

Water in the desert

Isa 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall sprout; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.

HaMayim b'Midmar is the Hebrew for Water in the desert or Wilderness. The word for water is Mayim and is a life source as well as a cleansing medium. We know that the Word of God (YHVH) is the water that washes us clean. The word Midmar consists of two parts; "Mid", meaning 'Garment' and "Bar" meaning 'Son' and 'Cleansing'.

Our walk through this life is like traveling through the Desert (Midbar), and it is designed to let us thirst and find the Son, so that our thirst may be quenched and our Garments may be Cleansed by Him through His Living Water (Word).
