Today the Spirit man speaks, as he hears.
“In days to come Jacob shall take root, Israel shall blossom and put forth shoots and fill the whole world with fruit.” Isaiah 27
What does he do when he hears the voice? He writes. This is how stories and journals are born. Often he writes without fore-thoughts. They are words spoken, sounds that came to him spontaneously.
They are picture words. A picture comes to his spirit and he can see it clearly like a vision. The picture is real. It exists. Can he not do anything? He can choose to ignore such words, sounds, or pictures. But he likes them. He believes they mean something to someone somewhere.
He is a recorder. He records what he hears, sees, and believes.
Often one or two, sometimes more, travel pass, and sight his writings. The words and pictures draw them. They linger. Some visit again. Some decide to keep track.
Yesterday he discovered that seven readers from Namibia and seven from Nigeria came to one of his blog sites. Two from Namibia stayed and subscribed to follow his blog.
He had had readers from other parts of Africa, the more heard of cities. But this was the first time from Namibia. A real pleasant surprise! He felt the same elation one day when he saw a ‘huge’ (a few hundreds) group of south Koreans came to visit his blog too! They came to read all about Yom Kippur!
He had had visitors, viewers rather, from different nations, many are names to him. He has never known the existence of them. But the national flags come on, representing the existence of a special people, with its own words and sounds.
It humbles him to know how people of different sounds exist and survive. They all share one mode of communication, that is, using sound. Sounds are made into words, each of which denotes a meaning to a group of people. That group can then share with one another their individual thoughts, intents, wants and needs.
Lately he started singing Spirit songs. One night he was working on his new mobile phone testing its recording function. He felt in his spirit to sing so he sang sounds and words he could not understand. The next day he looked up the meanings of those sounds and found that a sentence consisted of words each with a meaning from five different nations! Together they formed one complete sentence asking him to download the lyrics of a very old hymn and post in his blog about a group of 26 Christians including 3 young boys, who were forced to march 600 miles (966 kilometers) from Kyoto to Nagasaki where they were martyred; all the while singing the Te Deum. He did publish that post the night before (on the anniversary date of the original martyrdom date, even though he did not know the meaning of what he sang) as his spirit had received the message.
Why are sounds given to man so he can hear and act? What is the purpose of narrating the above episode? The voice of certain origins cannot be silenced. They are crying out for remembrance. For whom? I believe there is a specific audience each specific voice calls. When they cannot hear, someone hears for them and get those voices published. The target audience will be led to the published voices and then hear, as they see (read the words and see the pictures in the words).
