Revelation 19:7

Pre-face:

I know, you probably want to ‘get on’ with the story, but please read this brief overview and explanation first.

I began writing this story because I’m dealing with many of the same problems “My bride” deals with. I’m not ‘solved’; you may not be when you finish the book. But I hope it’ll be a diving board for you.

The main characters are Wise King, Pure{My King}, Uncertain One{My Bride}, Strong Believer, and Blessed Gem. Wise King is our Father in Heaven, Pure is our Saviour. Uncertain one is a legalistic believer, struggling for a true love for Pure. Strong Believer is Uncertain One’s Father. He is wise, and is faithful to Wise King and Pure. Blessed Gem, Uncertain One’s Mother, is kind and also a firm believer in Wise King and Pure.

Nearly every time I read over a chapter in this work, I ended up changin’ something. Even when I thought it was about right!

Now, you may feel you do not need to look up the verses I reference, but I highly recommend you do. Or you could read it once and look them up, then read it over. Why would I want you to? For two things. (1) you see where in the Bible the principles I discuss really are & (2) become certain on what I’m talking about. And if you do not find the principles as outlayed in this work, please DO question the ideas put forth, and let me know!

P.S. This isn’t real touchy on doctrine and is easy reading. Yet if you struggle like Uncertain One, It may be uncomfortable. And that feeling could grow. But if so it may help you change…for the better. To our Father be the glory.

Grow for the Father,

Yah’s girl a.k.a. Uncertain One

Grace and peace from our Father!

Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left; That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them: But cleave unto [Wise King] your [Wise King], as ye have done unto this day. For [Wise King] hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day.” Joshua 23:6-9

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the [Master Pure], to testify the gospel of the grace of [Wise King].” Acts 20:24

The battles raging within

Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of [Wise King]: but he that doeth evil hath not seen [Wise King].”3 John 1:11

Therefore thou shalt love [Wise King] thy [Heavenly Father], and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.” Deuteronomy 11:1

See Deuteronomy 4:40

Uncertain One Thinks about the man whom she is in contact with. He has asked her to marry Him. He loves her! Yet, she struggles to totally love Him.

As she considers her state, unexpected visitors arrive.

Uncertain One, a fair yet plain girl, sat at her mother’s kitchen table. Though slightly beyond the age most ladies marry, she was still single. Her mother, Blessed Gem, was nearby, stirring the porridge on the old pot-bellied stove. Uncertain One was comfortable and content. Yet, she was perplexed.

She was reading silently a letter she’d received from one, who’s surname was Everlasting. She paused and quizzed herself. Pure K. Everlasting. Residence, New Jerusalem. She knew He loved her. Tremendously! His letters emanated love and hope in every word. But where was her love for Him? She just wanted to please Him by her obedience. To impress Him, as if somehow she took Him as someone who only took her at face value. Someone that was picky about her behavior, to the extent He expected legalism. But this wasn’t true. All He really wanted was her whole heart. She continued reading the love-soaked letter.

He spoke of the love He had for her, and encouraged her to do right. He kindly spoke of how much He wished for her to love Him. He assured her His love would never end, that it was based on her real worth, not what most saw on her surface. They had corresponded for awhile by this time, and so He had already explained some of the ‘rules’ of His home, the standards He’d expect. They were obviously written in stone, but He did NOT want Uncertain One to follow, unless she had a desire and loved Him back. Did she?

Uncertain One paused her reading. So intense were her thoughts, she could not even smell her mother’s cooking and baking, being oblivious to her surroundings. Staring blankly, she thought: “How can He expect so much? Well, I must do everything exactly as He said. I will! But it isn’t easy. Can I do it? I would LOVE to obey every word if I loved Him as much as He loves me. Those standards are great. But CAN I make myself do so? With out working to love Him? Can I do it on my own? But- DO I want to give my life to this guy?”

Truly, He had shown her many things she must follow (obey), as she could bear them.1 He, “meek and lowly in heart”, was gentle, yet firm.2 But poor Uncertain One didn’t comprehend that He didn’t want her to obey on her own power. That wasn’t the point at all. Her growth was supposed to be a combined effort.

She sure did strive for His expectations. But she was learning, ever so slowly, that she could not do it on her own. She wanted to obey perfectly, indeed. She wanted control of the situation. But she was struggling, due to her lack-of-love.

She had afore-time stopped eating unclean meats,3 and began to pay tithe of all she had grown, bred, and of all her increase.4 Wise King and Pure were working on her heart!

Sadly she was, however, though only months into the relationship, already “weary in well doing”5. It was work! She wasn’t used to His rules. Why keep them anyways, if she didn’t love him? There were many questions within her.

1John 16:12 + 2Matthew 11:29 + 3Leviticus 11, Deuteronomy 14, 12:22-25, & 15:22,23 + 4Leviticus 27:30-34, Deuteronomy 14:22-29, 2 Chronicles 31:6 & Matthew 23:23 + 5Galatians 6:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:13

She remembered well His soft words; “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”

He continued, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” 1

He was a light to her heart, and an uplifting thought to her days. Well, at least slightly. But how could she let HER light for HIM shine before men!? It was still rather frail. She thought she MUST be the “weakest of the weak”. She was so confused. Indeed, hard to be strong for a cause OR a man you barely know and hardly love!

Uncertain One’s parents were also a grand help. Pure had told her parents earlier; “Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.” 2

She had spoken of her dilemma to them a few times before. She presently brings it up again to her Mother. Blessed Gem takes the porridge off the stove, and sets it down to cool. She settles in a chair near Uncertain One at the table, and speaks. “Uncertain One, you can not truly be following Wise King and Pure’s commands without love for Pure and His Father. In fact, child, loving Him is one of His commands.” She smiled, but spoke with a serious tone in her voice. 

1Matthew 5:13-16, 21 Thessalonians 5:14

Blessed Gem’s husband, Strong Believer, walks in, carrying an arm-full of wood. As he had over-heard a snatch of their conversation upon entering, and having sensed the situation, he reminds Uncertain One of Pure’s words, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”1

“Uncertain One”, Blessed Gem added, “you must first love Him. He’s right about that. Why else wouldst you obey?”

Uncertain One, arising, said; “Thanks Father, Mother. I shall go mull this over for awhile yet again. Keep me posted on the mail, at least if it’s from Pure.”. She gave a slight smile.  They replied, “We will call you when breakfast is ready.”

As she lay on the davenport, she reflected again. She couldn’t see Him until a certain date, but she did not know the date.2 Yet, she must be ready by that time. For, ready or not, He would come to take her. Home, if she agreed. To everlasting death If she refused the invitation. She would be choosing that, as well.3

Suddenly, she was ‘awakened’ from her dreamy thoughts. There was a knock, then a voice floated in through the old oak door of the room. “Greetings, Uncertain One!” Uncertain One sat upright. “Oh, greetings!”, she exclaimed, surprised to have visitors. One lad and one lady, Brave and Sure Jewel, entered. She welcomed her friends in.

“Uncertain One”, Brave said, “We are here to speak with you, for we hear you are in contact with one, a man named Pure K. Everlasting.” “Indeed I am, in contact, that is!”, Uncertain One said, in an almost put-offish evasive manner.

Brave went way back with Pure, having met Him years before. Brave was wise, kind and very smart. Sure Jewel, also a good friend of Pure, was meek, sweet, and also wise. 

Brave continued: “Well, Uncertain One, we simply wanted to advise you on a few points. We have met Pure, and are glad you are contemplating this important move. Now, guessing you assume, or even KNOW that He loves you, what would you think or feel if Pure failed to truly love you, or spurned you for another?” Uncertain One began to reply, but Brave cut her off, continuing.

1Deuteronomy 6:5, Psalms 116:1, 145:20, Matthew 22:37,Mark 12:30, 2Matthew 25:13, 3Mark 13:35 & Luke 12:40

You would feel betrayed, no matter HOW you felt about Him, likely. You would accuse Him of being a deceiver, a cheat. Am I correct?” “Well, yes, I suppose.” Uncertain One, wincing, replied. She had hardly thought of such vile possibilities!

Sure Jewel joined in. “Uncertain One, Uncertain One. How could you, then, knowing that, pose as His ‘sweet-heart’, if you thought YOU might do like wise, and make Him feel like that?” She paused for effect. “ If you are to marry Him, live with Him, obey Him, maybe DIE for Him, you had better love Him!”

“Well…” (Uncertain One replied, rather sheepishly.) “I do not know how YOU knew MY plight, but I do suppose you are correct. I thank you. I shall ponder your words!”

Brave and Sure Jewel departed and bid farewell: “We believe it is His spirit that sent us to you today. Your parents told us your situation on our way to your room. It is time for us to depart now. Our shop in town should open soon, Uncertain One. We best be on our way. Blessings, dearest.” They were glad they had done their part, yet anxiously awaited Uncertain One’s decision, and thus, destiny. “Blessings, and Thank-you”

“Uncertian One? Breakfast be served!” “Coming Mother!”
