Reading and Understanding The Holy Bible is Essential
“Linguisto Loved a Lady”
He Loved Her “From a Distance”[i]
(Because she stopped writing to him; and told him to stop writing to her.)
And This Is What Happened . . . strange as it may seem . . .
Who Art Thou, O Unwrapper of Hearts?
I AM the receiver of gifts.
I live in the hearts of young children,
And in the hearts of those who, by the grace of God in Christ,
Become childlike again,
Who can appreciate spiritual things
That are unseen and yet present,
That only the spiritual can perceive and thus receive,
By the eyes of their understanding being opened by my Spirit,
Whom I bequeath to those who genuinely believe in Me,
Even the Spirit of truth, the Spirit of understanding, the Comforter,
The Counselor, the Helper,
Whom the world cannot receive; neither can they see Him;
For they are only natural, rather than spiritual.
Only by being born from above can they see My Kingdom, and enter into the Kingdom of God.
O Unwrapper of hearts, how may I become spiritual?
Hear and Believe the gospel of God,
And you will be born again, born from above.
The eyes of your understanding will open, perhaps slowly
And you will be enabled to see and enter.
And your uncircumcised heart will become circumcised, that is, unwrapped. And, I will make you into a gift of my Love.
Who art thou, O Unwrapper of hearts?
I AM the crucified One, who rose from the dead;
The One who was and Is and Is Coming Again.
The Son of Man, the Son of God,
The Lord of lords, the King of kings.
The Way, the Truth and the Life.
See John 14:1-31.
See Romans 2: 25-29 and Colossians 2 and 3 concerning the circumcision of the heart and the circumcision of Christ (2:11 ESV)
Bible quotations about gifts…see Bible concordance: keyword: “gifts”
While listening and viewing “From A Distance” by Bette Midler with lyrics, noticed the word heart and the word “ear” in that word Heart.
Sonya? Is your heart listening?
Is the ear in your heart able to listen and hear?
And, Sonya? Can your heart speak?
Can you write what is in your heart?
Can you tell it like it is?
I remember, when we were in the college library looking at the album of photographs…
You declared quite emphatically and out loud with courage:
“You didn’t believe me!”
Sonya? Can you still show what you’ve got in that heart of yours?
Sonya, if you’re afraid, confess that you are afraid. Your spirit will immediately be liberated from that fear. For, as soon as you tell the truth the Light will shine on that truth and it too will become Light in our Savior. And His Light will dispel the darkness. And you will see by His Light and be comforted by His Loving Holy Spirit and you will be free of fear, in Him.
2Corinthians 4:6 (NIV): “For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.”
“As he spake these words, many believed on him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, ‘If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’” -John 8: 30-32 KJV of The Holy Bible.

 A song sung by Bette Midler.
 See Matthew 18:1-6 concerning “…unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
 Read The Gospel: John 13 to 17 concerning Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. And Isaiah 11:1-16 NIV.
 Read 1Corinthians 15: 1-58.
 Read John 3:1-36.
 Read Romans 2:28,29; Ephesians 2:11-22; Ephesians 3:1-21; Philippians 3:1-21 (NIV). Read and believe Colossians 2:1-23. Colossians 3:1-25.
 John 14:1-3.
Thank you Bette Midler for singing these songs.
Thank you YouTube.com for playing these songs.
Thank you to those who produced the videos of these beautiful songs.
Thank you Charlene for singing this song.
About the line in the song: “I’ve never been to me.” It reminds me of something Jesus said in the gospel about “me”: “At that time Jesus declared, ‘I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.'” -Matthew 11:25-30 ESV Study Bible. Isn’t Jesus, the one and only Son of God, the One and Only “me” we all need to come to for salvation?
And about Paradise: I believe there really is Paradise. For it is written in His Word, the Holy Scriptures, that the living Word of God said: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.” -Revelation 2:7 NIV Study Bible.
And about Truth: It is written: “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.'” -John 14:6, 7 NIV Study Bible.
Glory be to God, the only true God, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, His One and only Son, the Son of God.
