Can we really experience this feeling? I am not sure, we can strive for and build a reliance upon but living it out is our true daily struggle. A blind walk with the Father in charge.
I have had the experience of being led while blindfolded a few times, some with those I trusted and others with those I did not. Never being able to just walk with the abandon that I am safe with the guide. To totally give up my need to determine my direction or path.
I will make a point clear here first before moving on, 1) I belive the Word is inspired and true (any delve into Hebrew puts that to rest), 2) I do not belive in the Trinity as taught doctrinally. Three separate entities, YHVH, Yeshua, Ruach (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), not one entity expressed in three different ways. Nuff said.
Even Yeshua did not know all things, He told us so (yes, go check), the Father does keep a few decisions and information for Himself to determine. Jesus had to trust the Fathers way and do His will according to His words. Submission 101, Instructor: Jesus
So His trust was even unto death, Jesus did not raise himself, the Father raised him, ultimate trust. We need to have that same trust and then when Yeshua acts as our intercessior for our consequences of sin and death, we trust that He will call us good and trustworthy servants, enter in.
Blind walk, I have never seen past death, beyond my last breath, or anyone else’s for that matter. Jury is still out on many of the “other side stories”. I must walk blindly there in total trust in faith and truth. Now I just need to figure out how to do that in this side.
