His Name Is Written On Our Hearts

I posted this awhile back and felt as though the Lord wanted me to re-post in honor of Resurrection Sunday.  Back then it took 3 blogs to tell you what I'm about to share.  Guess I was being a little "wordy". This time I'm getting right to the point:
Many years ago I learned that God literally carved His name into His chosen city, Jerusalem, with a shin ש.  A shin is a letter in the Hebrew alphabet that also represents one of the names of God; El-Shaddai meaning God Almighty.  The Shin ש over Jerusalem is formed by the three valleys that run through it, the Hinnom (on the left), the Tyropoeon (down the middle), and the Kidron (on the right).

1 Kings 11:36 (NIV) I will give one tribe to his son so that David my servant may always have a lamp before me in Jerusalem, the city where I chose to put my Name.

I was so amazed and awestruck at this revelation and wondered if I also had His name written on me.  If a piece of land carried His name then wouldn't I, whom He formed, also bear his name?  I began to think about my salvation; I asked Jesus into my 'heart', and my heart is the core where my feelings figuratively live. I wondered, if the Lord "did" decide to write His name on me, could it possibly be on my heart. After much praying and searching I found it! His name is LITERALLY written on my heart.  The same shin ש signature He used to carve upon Jerusalem is also written upon me! After this amazing revelation the Lord said to me, "You are because I AM."


Jeremiah 15:16 (NIV) When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight, for I bear you name, O LORD God Almighty.

Whether we chose to follow Him or not we are all God's creation.  He signed His name on every one of us.  If we choose to follow, we will live with Him in the New Jerusalem worshiping along with the angels singing, "...Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory." Isaiah 6:3. 

One day as I was praying I imagined The Lord Almighty entering the temple in His royal robes and majestic train. A sweet aroma filling every corner of my mind. The walls and pillars trembled and I felt a rumble in my chest as I heard all of creation singing, "You are Holy... Oh, so Holy... You are Holy Lord of all."  I  was on my knees and my breathing got faster as I sensed the King's presence getting closer.  I heard His footsteps next to me and His robes brushed against my body.  He said to me, "I am in your presence; you are breathing in My breath."

These are the things the Lord has revealed to me and these are the words He has spoken. I keep the tucked in my 'heart'.

He who has ears, let him hear.
Matthew 11:15(NIV)

Have a wonderful resurrection day!
