While you sit with me and receive what I am saying, understand there is also more than one dimension to what I am saying in this moment. For the words I speak are spirit and they are life. There is more than one meaning, more than one timeline, and more than one application. So receive from me, but also remain flexible in your reception, for I will show you meaning after meaning, layer after layer, and application after application of all I have already given you, in addition to what is yet to come (1).
Sit with me in the calm of the day, but also sit with me in the midst of your chaos and turmoil. Sit with me and listen to the move of my heart for I will show you wondrous and glorious things. I will show you mysteries that provoke your heart. I will show you insights that will offend your mind. I will reveal things yet to come, and their ramifications will be both amazing and perplexing at the same time (2).
For I am more than one-dimensional, and likewise my word is also more than one-dimensional. I speak to you from the essence of who I am, so know there is not just one, surface-level meaning to all I am saying in this moment and doing in your life. For I am working with you, and in you, this moment for today, but I am also working with you, and in you, for things yet to come. I am working on one aspect that is obvious to you, but I am also addressing issues, concerns, and realties that are not obvious, but are hidden beyond your sight and realm of detection (3).
So do not walk by your own understanding, for you will make presumptions and make grave errors in interpreting and understanding what I am saying and the direction in which I am moving. But listen to my voice, and receive the revelation of my spirit. For even though it will not always make sense to your rational mind, even though it will oftentimes defy your culture and your traditions, it will be life for you (4).
And in this life you will find the freedom you desire, for I will liberate you from the idols and traditions of the culture of the day. And as a result you will walk in freedom, for you will not be influenced by ideas and practices that have no real or lasting merit or value. You will speak truthfully, and behave truthfully. You will walk in wholesome agreement in what is important to me, and will do so without compromise, without hesitation, and without distortion or misunderstanding (5).
