I shook my head in amazement.
What seemed an audible voice, responded:
"It has been here from the beginning. You could not see it because it is not visible to the human eye! It is veiled to all but the eyes of the Spirit. It is a new and living way whose maker is God. Remember!" Spirit said.
Then I remembered the words of the prophet Isaiah:
And it will be called the Highway of Holiness.
The unclean will not travel on it
But it will be for him who walks that way,
And fools will not travel on it."
"A voice calling,
'Clear the way for the Lord in the wilderness
Make smooth in the desert
A highway for our God."
I glanced about once again, I could not ascertain where the voice came from, but I knew it was the voice of the Spirit.
"Because you have received me," Spirit said, "I have anointed your eyes that you may see beyond the veil. It is, after all, another of my directives."
Then I remembered Jesus' promise:
For he will not speak of His own initiative
But whatever He hears He will speak;
And He will disclose to you what is to come."
"He will glorify Me,
for He will take what is mine
And will disclose it to you!
All things the Father has are mine
Therefore I said that He takes what is mine
And discloses it to you.
John 16: 13-16
"What is real? He said. How do you define real? If you're talking about what you feel, taste, smell or see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain."
"No" Spirit said laughingly. "It's something Morpheus said. You, of all people, should remember!! It's from, The Matrix!"
"Absolutely! That's what I'm here for. Spirit replied.
"Then what IS real?" I asked. " Is this a real desert? Is this a real highway or is all of this a vision, a dream, or some kind of hallucination?"
"Of course you can't. You're not supposed to! It's impossible! He said. The things of the Spirit are only spiritually discerned. That is why I told Nick, (Nick O. Demas) 'You must be born again!' Remember? As you well know, the 'natural man' or a 'human being' is not able to comprehend or be aware of the things of the Spirit - because he or she is unspiritual! Humans only possesses human life, human intelligence and the ability to understand and interact with the natural and human realm. Those who are born AGAIN of the Spirit are able to see within the spiritual realm."
"I get it now. I really do." I shouted! Hallelujah! Because I have been 'born again', I have received the gift of the Holy Spirit' and now I have been made alive - spiritually! I have also realized that the 'way' out of this spiritual desert I have been in - is not a physical highway - but it is the HIGH way! A HIGHER way! A higher spiritual path - not the ways of a man, but the way of the Spirit - your way - or YAWEH!" I chuckled to myself. "I must have the gift of cleverness", I thought.
As soon as I spoke these words I recalled:
Nor are My ways your ways,
Declares the Lord
For as the heavens are HIGHER than the earth,
So are My ways HIGHER then your ways
And My thoughts then your thoughts."
