I looked for it amongst my blog post. Not to be found. But lo and behold, Facebook recalling one to old memories had the darn post as a Facebook Post.
So here it is: “You Ain’t Seen Nuthin Yet Until God Breaks You”
I bring it to you minus corrections. It has blessed first a Church congregation in NYC: Life Line Baptist Church of Brooklyn NY. And then two online zines and then two previous blogs started and abandoned.
Yes, I was at one time heavily broken by circumstances. Devastated. Shortly thereafter I learned this truth.
“You Aint Seen Nuthin Yet Until God Breaks You”
Count it to be an opportunity. A time when His Holy Presence and Spirit is able to shed light from within you out through the cracks of your breaking.
Yes, He breaks your security (not founded upon Him), your sleep of illusion, your bed of roses.
He breaks your illusion of self, the miasma of incorrect perceptions, illusory assessments, and shines upon the lives of the ones who could not have anticipated that their deliverance, nurture, feeding, and hope, would come at the expense of your breaking.
The formula for breaking; found in Mathew 14:15-21
Jesus had been addressing the multitudes for a great length. The disciples bring to His attention that, it is getting late, to send them (multitude) off (for they were content just to stand about, and hear Him.) that they might obtain food for themselves.
“Give ye them to eat.”, is Jesus’ response. For as much as they had but five loaves and two fish, they informed the Master, they are unable to feed them all.
“Bring them to me.” (the five loaves and two fish) Jesus tells them.
He instructs the multitude to sit around upon the grass.
And looking up to heaven he blessed them, and breaks them, gives the pieces to the disciples, and in turn the disciples give to the multitude.
Every one was filled, and yet there was a remainder of twelve baskets full.
The key to this whole story is found in the little word, blessed. That one word is translated from the Greek word, eulogaiea. It is from that word that we have the English word eulogy.
At a eulogy the speaker will say good things about the dearly departed.
John Doe was a good ole boy, a good husband, provider, father, and a pillar of the community.
Looking up to heaven (Jesus), Well Father, these five loaves and two fish were a fine specimen when you created them in their natural state, but now Father, (break, crack, crunch) they will be Supernatural.
So it goes with us; “Well Father, Miguel was considered a good ole boy (born of Adam, Fallen State), but now Father, (break, crack, crunch) he will be much, much more!
(as a result) Look at him now boy, see him run, wasting all his time on face book writing stuff that no one pays any attention to, ya gotta love a fool for the Lord. Can I get a witness!
Read Heb 12:5-11, On despising not the Lord’s chastening.
There were 12 basket full remaining. The number 12 is the number for “God’s governmental control” That is to say that when He is in control, no one will lack, and, in the case of His orchestrated breaking, it all works out to the benefit of the masses.
As per the numerical application of the number 12; we have, for example: 12 apostles, 12 gates of Jerusalem to control traffic, and the 12 tribes of Israel.
Thank you for reading.

Who never burnt midnight oil,
Hasn’t known ye, O’ heavenly powers.”
