It is a spiritual Samurai mountain.
My solitude is precious today, as always. A fresh blanket of white covers our Bird Mountain. Our first snow.
I happened to snap this picture. There are many odd details in it. A Samurai? His sword appears to be a white feather? And is that the Millennium Falcon in the tree in the background? Yes.
We are in a time of growing light and exposure of both the good, the bad, and the ugly, perhaps even in our own life.
God has a mountain. It is a sacred mountain, a holy place. He does not force us to climb it. He invites us to his high places, to an eagle mentality. He waits, hoping we will fall so in love with His Holy Spirit that we will be drawn to God’s high places. But there is a mountain to climb, and it is samurai in nature, it will not happen by accident, it must be very intentional, the choosing to live in Holy Spirit.
But what of the other mountain, the mountain that entangles?
“You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also. Share in the suffering as a good soldier (samurai) of Christ. No soldier (warrior) gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.” (2nd Timothy 2:1-4)
The world has many mountains to offer also, but without God’s mountain first, they only serve to entangle us. We become slaves. We are unfulfilled in our spirit. Our wings are clipped and we are grounded. It ought not be so with the people of God, a mountain people, a Skypeople!
As light grows we see how entangled America has become in a darkness being revealed. A war is upon us. Civilians do not fare well in war. They are not birds of prey. They have little fight in them. They live in fear, hide, and die unfulfilled. The call is going forth! Climb that mountain and know the strength of your Lord!
Seek the Holy Spirit and begin climbing to the higher places of God, where he pours out his anointing from the Ram’s horn, the mountain sheep! Leap upon the high places of Spirit, and you will be strong! You will be free! You will be fulfilled, and know eternity! Amen!!!
