acknowledging the sword of abuse
Throughout my life I had sought help from many people,
When I was 22 I wrote an article
"thanks for the help but something is missing"
many comforted me
I appreciated their time and effort
but there were no answers
In my late forties the Lord gave me a vision
of me going into a casualty ward at a hospital
the staff washed my wound
cleaned out the puss
but left the impaled piece of wood lodged in my stomache
the abrasion would cause further infection
the Lord said the puss was as unforgivenes
the cleansing was being forgiving
but the sword of abuse had not been removed
the fundamental problem wasn't me being unforgiving
it was that the sword of abuse needed to be acknowleged
and then correctly removed by a competitant surgeon
just pullling it out can cause bleeding to death
the severed blood vessels need stiching up
the would will need to be bound up
and the Lord's healing balm applied
maybe a few other things
to put it another way
is the sword of abuse - the offence of abuse?
but there is a wounding, a violation of the will
the impacts and effects of child sexual abuse are many
there are many variables
that's why recovery takes time
it needs to be careful examination
most importantly trusting the Lord
and accessing the right medical asistance
and appropriate councellors.
and prayer ministry
How Jesus removed the sword of abuse ( offfence )
I was reading Vines (1) New Testament Word book on meanings of forgiveness
the relevant one really reached into my heart
and Jesus Christ gave me a revelation of His atonement removing the sword of abuse ...
"secondly. it involves the complete removal of the cause of the offence ...
based upon the vicarious and propitiary sacrifice of Christ."
Jesus Christ through His atonement, His suffering and death
removed and destroyed the sword of abuse
and He took and destroyed my pain.
