“I will reveal myself”

The following is based on my true experience. I saw it and can testify it happened!

For many years, actually decades, I did my “own” thing. I sinned and sinned continually. Ignoring  the Lord and pursuing my own desires (money, women, fun times, etc.) Then, alittle over a year ago,one night,  I was inspired to read the bible (front to back) for the first time in my life. I  read it carefully, taking it all in and learning just what Almighty God had to say. After the second or third night, I read about the “Ten Commandments”. While I knew about them, I really wasn’t familiar with ALL of them. The one that “stuck out” at me was ” You shall keep holy the Sabbath day”. I pondered this and was guided by the Holy Spirit to “try” this.

In my appliance business Saturday is a very busy day for me. So I basically decided to do it “on faith”. Not knowing much about the Sabbath, except that we were NOT to do our own thing but rather to communicate with our Lord and honor Him as our creator and Lord.  So for the FIRST time in my life, I obeyed His holy Sabbath the following Friday evening. I took that first Sabbath shower, and I remember taking a real long one to get really clean for His holy day. The rest of the evening I read the bible. It was a nice quiet evening. I ended up sleeping 11 hours that night!  Talk about Sabbath rest,lol.

The Sabbath was spent quietly and mostly reading the bible and watching some Christian TV. I refused all business and calls. Then the evening was approaching and I was hungry. So I cooked dinner and sat down at the dining room table. While I was pleased that this first Sabbath was nice I really didn’t feel anything unusual. Unbeknown est to me,  I was very quickly to be shown otherwise!

It was getting dark and I reached over to the dining room lights and turned them on. I began to eat. Shortly after, the lights above me went off, then they came on, then they went off, then they came back on, then they went off  again, and then finally they came back on.  ALL BY THEMSELVES 3 times!!  I thought , what was that???  Then it hit me!  GOD had noticed my FIRST EVER Sabbath! I was stunned. God was speaking to me by showing me this sign to let me know He was watching. This was so amazing in so many ways.

This “lights” sign spoke volumes to me. First,  it showed that His ever watchful eye notices our obedience. Second, God wanted to tell me I was doing the “right thing” in obeying His holy Sabbath. Third, God’s purpose was to “open” my eyes to His holys Laws and to go and spread His truth to the people.  God has said in (John 14;21) “He that has my Commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me, and shall be loved by the Father, and I will love him, and WILL REVEAL MYSELF TO HIM”.  And (1 John 2:  3-4) ” This is how we KNOW we know Him, if we keep His Commandments, he that says  ‘ I know Him’  and does not keep His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him”   Yes, Lord,  we know you by what you said in these verses.               AMEN!   I saw it Lord, personally,  and I praise you and declare your words are true.

So once we OBEY Him and  His Commandments, HE WILL REVEAL HIMSELF TO US.  Don’t ever forget this. I have often heard from professing  Christians that “Oh, we can’t keep them, it’s impossible” or “They aren’t really needed to be obeyed”  This is, in my opinion, foolishness because HE has promised to send a helper (the Holy Spirit) and it becomes very DOABLE, Praise God! And the WHOLE PURPOSE  of obeying Him is to show WE LOVE HIM! If you do not feel close to Him, just review your life and come to Him as He has commanded and he won’t let you down!     Amen.

    Wow Rob…this is another one that gave me goosebumps. I want to have an experience like that…I want God to reveal Himself to me too

    You will Todd,
    I am not unique in this, as God has PROMISED He will show Himself to us if we KEEP His Commandments. I truly wonder how many professing Christians actually know the Commandments 1 to 10 (?) Oh, how much they are missing!

    ROB IT OCCURED TO ME0 THAT THE ONLY COMMAMDMENT THAT TRULY IS KEEPABLE, THAT OUR FLESH DOESN’T GET IN THE WAY,…IS THE 4TH. REMEMBER THE SABBATH TO KEEP IT HOLY. THE OTHES’S WE STRUGGLE W TO KEEP OUR FLESH OUT. BUT THE SABBATH IS EASY,PERHAPS THAT IS Y IT IS THE ONLY ONE ONE WE ARE ASKED TO REMEMBER. THIS I’M SURE IS Y HE MANIFESTS RE: THE KEEPING OF IT.

    Very good point. I also have thought that about the one we can really do and do well. All can be obeyed but this one is different for sure, thanks Cynfree.
