These thoughts were illusions of my own making. The feeble attempt to make myself measure up against someone else’s measuring rod. Forgetting the only measure I needed, was that of the stature of the fullness of Christ
Now – פעם – Pa’am
Definition- One time, once, twice, thrice, as time on time, at this repetition, this once, now at length, NOW…NOW, at one time… at another
Genesis 2:23 – And Adam said, This is Now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
Adam declared, upon the revelation of Eve, “This Now” is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. This declaration came not only in the sense of “at this moment”, but beyond eternity, Olam. With each passing second, each passing moment, and beyond time itself – “This Now is bone of my bones, and flesh.”
The Hebrew word pa’am (פעם) is very much like our English phrase “Once upon a time.” This same phrase, in light of pa’am, could also be “Once and for all” Each of these statements include the elements of all points of time. The story that begins with “Once upon a time” is telling a story of a PAST event, being told to someone NOW, and infers that the meaning of the story allows the hearer, or reader, to use the lessons learned from the character to make better FUTURE choices. This elements of all points of time at once in the story is yet another perspective of TzimTzum.
One element of TzimTzum shows the wise teacher as one who transcends himself, his views, and his truths to see through the eyes of his student. In doing so, he is able to look for a point of reference in the world of the student, and tell a story that excites the student to look deeper into his own world, and into himself. In a sense, the teacher points the student in a direction, but does not tell the student what he must learn. This process allows for the story to grow in revelation and meaning as the experience and maturity of the learner grows. The teacher then remains, in the mind and heart of the student, and leads the student into deeper revelation.
Ruach HaKodesh, Holy Ghost, is our teacher.
In using Einstein’s equations on his theory of relativity, time has a completely different definition. Based on his equations, and factoring in movement and perception, the past, present and future are all the same thing. Thus proving the spirit of pa’am.
Now is the time, Now is the day of salvation (2Cor 6:2).
I am reminded of a perpetual vision that I have seen for quite some time. At this particular point in the vision, I had walked with Yashua in the meadow of our secret place. We had been silent in conversation up to this point, yet revelation was pouring into me during this time. We stopped, and he placed his hands INSIDE of my back, at the level of my heart, and reached in. I could feel him grabbing my heart, and as he began to pull it back, an unseen part of my heart began to be pulled outside of my back. This backpack was yet still attached to my heart, but the greatest was sitting directly behind my shoulders. (The perfect picture here would be that of the letter Tzade צ) He Looked at me and said “All that you are, everything you have ever needed, has always been inside of you. All is ready.” An absolute wonder and gratitude flooded over my being, and yet, Ruach Yirath Yahweh was also there. I knew at that moment, I could only access this by permission.
Yet, the questions came!
Why have I not known this before? I had heard the words that Yahweh had already provided me all things that pertain to life and godliness, so why did seeing the Tzade backpack on my back suddenly change my perception? Why have I not accessed this before now?
How do I have access??? And why are things not like I expected?
And I knew!
These thoughts were illusions of my own making. The feeble attempt to make myself measure up against someone else’s measuring rod. Forgetting the only measure I needed, was that of the stature of the fullness of Christ Yashua, through Ruach HaKodesh. Added to that was my misconception of time. Laying out all as if time and process had the ultimate control.
So why am I torturing myself because I am not where I expected I would be? Einstein’s theory proved that the past, present and future were all one and the same. Then Yahweh reminded me of the story of the fish and loaves.
16 But Jesus said, “That isn’t necessary–you feed them.” 17 ¶ “But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish!” they answered. 18 ¶ “Bring them here,” he said. 19 Then he told the people to sit down on the grass. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he gave the bread to the disciples, who distributed it to the people. 20 They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers.
When there was need, an answer had already been provided.
I was also reminded of the fish and coin:
27 However, we don’t want to offend them, so go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coin. Take it and pay the tax for both of us.”
Yet again, where there was a need, the answer had already been provided. I now see all moments as Now! I don’t have to live in the regret of the past, or the fear of the future. All I have ever needed has already been provided. So the question I ask is “What do you have need of me in this moment of Now? I know it is already provided, so the fear of lack no longer has a sting. It’s already here!
The Hebrew word for faith is Aman (אמן) which means faithful, and is interchangeable with the meaning, “to the right hand” – the hand of authority, or also, the hand of permission “
All I can hear is:
Now Faith is… and it Is Finished.
