To the Creator, our lives matter


To our Creator, each of us is a unique masterpiece. We are loved and known intimately. We are important and HaShem desires a relationship with us.


When we realize about the greatness of our Lord, we envision how little and miserable we are as human beings. The little ants we are in the universe are nevertheless of very great value to our Maker.

Gideon said to the Lord: “Please, Lord, how can I save Israel? Behold, my clan is the weakest in Manasseh and I am the least in my father’s house”.  (Judges 6: 15)

Prophet Yirmiyahu ( Jeremiah) spoke of himself as of an infant. Especially the ones who were supposed to be HaShem’s voice had a belittleling vision of themselves.

I am convinced that HaShem chooses the complexed and the hurt persons to fulfill His plan.

Our eye is sometimes very critical towards our own person. This is often due to the fact that we have been hurt in our early childhood and adult life, sometimes by the individuals who were supposed to be our most intimate relatives or friends.

Even when we do have a strong relationship with Him, it is hard to imagine how much precious we are to our Lord.

Yesterday I stumbled upon the following piece of Scripture from Isaiah , Chapter 43…it also happens to be an exerpt of the Haftara from Sefer Bereshit ( Book of Genesis).

א  וְעַתָּה כֹּה-אָמַר יְהוָה, בֹּרַאֲךָ יַעֲקֹב, וְיֹצֶרְךָ, יִשְׂרָאֵל:  אַל-תִּירָא כִּי גְאַלְתִּיךָ, קָרָאתִי בְשִׁמְךָ לִי-אָתָּה.


ב  כִּי-תַעֲבֹר בַּמַּיִם אִתְּךָ-אָנִי, וּבַנְּהָרוֹת לֹא יִשְׁטְפוּךָ:  כִּי-תֵלֵךְ בְּמוֹ-אֵשׁ לֹא תִכָּוֶה, וְלֶהָבָה לֹא תִבְעַר-בָּךְ.

A love that is unconditional

*******

Our existences DO matter to our Creator. If you doubted it, I invite you to read this specific portion of Scripture and to meditate on it.

During Shabbat, I reflected on Daniel’s exile in Babylon. It was very hard for practicing Jewish children to be deported to Babylon. Even if Daniel and his fellow friends were well treated, they were also robbed from their Jewish I.D s and given pagan names.

Yet, they refused to conform to the customs of Babel regarding food and idolatry. Daniel and his friends’ lives were put at risk on many occurences for being faithful to HaShem. 

Even when the children were thrown into the fire, people could witness there was a fourth person walking with them. Daniel and his fellows met their Messiah in the furnace and the fire did not burn them.

The most difficult part for all of us, children of men, is to totally trust our Lord. When difficulties arise and in times of danger, we tend to forget that He is with us!

Remember the Torah verse from Deuteronomy, Chapter 46, verse 4:

 אָנֹכִי, אֵרֵד עִמְּךָ

I myself will descend with you.

These are our Lord’s words. No water, no fire will ever harm us, if we just accept to trust Him.

Our help comes from Him and to Him ALL the glory!

Amen

Announcement: the sequel to “An Encounter with Yeshua” is now ready…


I mean, I completed “An Encounter with Yeshua”-the Sequel”. Our Lord told me to conclude the book, so I obeyed His command.


The Sequel is written in the form of an agenda, from May to November 2015; it is truly my path into discipleship.


During this period, Yeshua taught me, showed me things in visions, honored me with a second visitation and kept instructing me day after day.


Yeshua also showed me, as you will see while going through your read, that His return is imminent.


One of His latest messages is about our readiness. By “our”, I mean all followers’ readiness. We MUST do our best to prepare ourselves for our King’s glorious return.


Wait for Him in a joyous expectation, in continuous prayer.

Pray for the lost souls and keep bringing Him your repentance whenever it is needed.


Maranatha.


Your author,


Isabelle Esling


P.S: my book is completed, but the whole work begins for me…I will be busy correcting and editing. I’ll keep you updated about a future publishing date. God bless you all.

The sight of His wound (exerpt of my upcoming book: An Encounter with Yeshua, the sequel)

stigmata yeshua

The sight of His wound
 
Dear Lord, thank you for allowing more closeness between us.”
My wonderful child, I am granting you the requests of your heart. Before your request is on your lips, I already read it from your heart. Child, beloved child, our story is a never-ending love story. Don’t you know it?”
Yes, I know my precious Savior.”
 
In the darkness of my room, at night, Yeshua’s light was spreading while I was speaking to our precious Lord. Yeshua took my right hand. His hand was in mine, but it started swallowing the sight of my own hand. My eyes saw His wounded palm and wrist. The depth of His wound was visible in clear sight to me. What He showed me increased my love for Him. I was feeling on fire for my beautiful Maker. I spent the next minutes in total awe.
I then remembered I had asked Him, a few months ago, to show me His stigmata.
It is impressing to see His wound of love (It is much wider than what many pictures or paintings show.)
Oh my precious Yeshua, wounded for me, for us, for all and even for the ones who are still spitting at Him!
The power and the beauty of His wonderful love are indescribable.
We are all unworthy such pure love, but He wants us, He cherishes our souls with such intensity, with such depth.
There is no greater expression of love than the fire that emanates from Yeshua’s heart.
Child, you will see more. It is the very beginning of your great adventure. Trust me. Call me. I am here. I love you.”
You know my feather is not even strong enough to describe you my mighty King.”
Yes, my beloved child, but many people will understand who I am thanks to your feather. Remember I am guiding your writings.”
