Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (Hebrews 11:1-3, NKJV)
‘INVISIBLE JIGSAW’ was this blog’s original title, but the present one was impressed upon me for launching by Advent 2011 – yet it’s a good fit for why I’m writing. However, both titles work, for God is working globally to perform His will.
This can be likened to His placing massive, states-wide, jigsaw-shaped pieces onto the earth and dropping them into our times – like completing an invisible jigsaw puzzle. He and the heavenly hosts are the only ones who can see it – unless we can penetrate the veil…
The name of this invisible jigsaw puzzle is, ‘Thy Kingdom Come!’
(Upon writing the above in April 2013 I’d forgotten about all those details until an alert to a comment upon a post popped into my email’s in-tray, as related in Invisible Jigsaw.)
Whenever you come together each has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. (1Corinthians 14:26 NKJV)
It’s terrific when the Lord works though others individually to bring the pieces together. Knowing our lives are in the Lord’s hands is good assurance for our inability to see things from His perspective. Can you, therefore, comprehend my difficulty in conveying what’s happening? One way I’ve found is to notice coincidences relating to scripture or prophecy, especially when two or more follow in close sequence. I call them ‘GOD-INCIDENTS’…
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; let them be for signs and seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.
Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. (Genesis 1:14-17 NKJV)
ONE EXAMPLE AMONG MANY!
In Spring 2014 I challenged readers to stretch their intellects and imagination to complete a jigsaw. Although invisible it’s not imaginary, because its material content really exists.
Divine data downloads as gently as snowflakes. As insights, or revelatory notions that drop into mind, they seem independent until sticking together like flakes. In fact, they get plugged in, a switch is thrown, the connection made and my inner light bulb starts flashing!
Then I perceive they’re really like jigsaw pieces. Each fits somehow, somewhere, into an invisible jigsaw puzzle, the overall design of which is beyond my ‘ken’. Sometimes the ‘download’ I blog snugly fits together! Someone looking over my shoulder whispers what sequence I’m to slot them together. Only as I do that, like moving in faith, does a new, unseen design start to appear. I could almost handle it and discover its intricacies
My own interpretation of that particular puzzle made up of associated posts on the blog looked like this:
