Posts from the Archives :: when the I AM is handed over

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, Hebrews 1:3

While I am resting and healing, I thought it would be a good idea if I re-posted some of my favorite posts from the archives This one is fitting for this week because it is about the wonder of the Great I Am being 'handed over' to the unjust cruelty, hatred and death of this dark world. This beauty that we have the treasure to gaze upon, especially during Passion week, gives us such pure power to 'be as He is in this world.' I John 4:17  We can face anything knowing He has gone before. Abiding in His perfect love, displayed fully in His death on the cross, casts away our fear (I John 4:18) for we know the victory and eternal life that are coming. I join with you in this sacred week of remembrance, hopeful, prayerful, graceful, and confident in the power and love that is forever ours. And I pray this is what becomes most real to us as we abide in Christ and walk step by step this long road Home.

when the I AM is handed over

the sum of all that was and is and is to come is given fully to the hateful, the proud, the self-righteous, the ignorant.

when the I AM is handed over

he who set the stars into space and sung the world into existence empties of power so completely that he will not expend so much as a word in his own defense, let alone the legions of angels and the full power as the Almighty he IS.

when the I AM is handed over

it is the purest and fullest expense of active passivity to resist all he eternally IS, WAS, AND WILL BE in the form of each movement, moment, emotion and thought pattern of his passion journey.

when the I AM is handed over

the eternal communion that defines love is broken at the climax of the perfect one’s suffering for all...for all time.

when the I AM is handed over

he who has intimate knowledge of all that has ever been and will be allows the greatest injustice to be wielded upon all that he, as the Great I AM, is.

when the I AM is handed over

in the beauty of only He who is full of eternity humbling himself, emptying all that he is in the conscious reality of time, releases that power to all who believe.

when the I AM is handed over

we find our way in this world.

we have interlaced in our heart of hearts the thread of redemption’s journey.

we receive the distilled power of the I AM to be handed over.

to love when we are wronged.

to endure the severest hateful enemy.

to be misunderstood, rejected and judged.

To find forgiveness an easy yoke and light burden

for all this gaze on Him reminds us 

we have been redeemed from and called to

to walk in a golden gleam untouched by depravity.

to be raised up into new life that speaks

from the highways and byways of time

to the single extraordinary pinnacle of love

to the Savior whose divine paradox

has released the pure beauty

of a love that only eternity and perfection can hold

and only time and vulnerability can manifest.

this great cosmic scene that translates to the 

hearts of all who behold and believe.

this is the fruit of He, the Great I AM, 

being ‘handed over’

as He fully lives His passion.
