A Place to Lay His Head
“And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.” (Matt 8:20)
The son of man who is also the Son of God looked out upon the world on Christmas day and thought deeply within himself…
“They sing hymns and carols in my honor, they give gifts in memory of me, they pray to the Most High in my name, they say they want me to reveal myself again, but do they really?
“Even after 2000 years is there yet a place for me to lay my head?
“Yes, there is a humble soul, a point of light scattered here and there across the planet and through the ages I have spoken peace to their hearts and they know I am with them.
“My call for things greater has been echoing across the cycles of time, for did I not say: ‘Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them’?
“Where are the two or three? The twelve and twenty-four? The 12,000 and the 144,000? Where is the gathering needed for a place to lay my head?
“Where are even the two who hear the voice of the soul as one and see eye to eye? Verily I say two must see eye to eye and rest in the great peace of God before the twelve and twenty-four become one.
“Yes, two or three come together now and then, but then soon part and see with multiple eyes, eyes that share not my sight and see not that which I see that brings unspeakable joy. They are so close — yet so far — they touch the body, yet the many feel not the living heart of God together.”
The Master arose and turned his head away from the world toward the darkness of space. I could not see his face, but I thought I felt his heart and I wept. I was not strong enough to hold back my tears. I wondered within myself. Was I picking up the feelings and thoughts of this great being? If I could see his face which was turned away, would I see the same tears that I shed?
I blinked my blurry eyes trying to focus and the son of man who is the Son of God was gone but within my heart a heavenly fire did burn and these words of peace did come:
“My son, rejoice, even in the divine sorrow you feel with me, for without this we could not have the fullness of joy that comes when the many become one. This coming together is decreed before the foundations of the earth was laid and it will happen. Look to the future and feel the joy as you walk in the valley of separated souls. The union of souls will happen and it will be soon if each person tuned to my heart fulfills his role.
“Then I will have a place to lay my head and we will be home together in the house of my Father.”
