The Essential Becoming
In “The Essential Becoming,” the saint is surrounded by water that is also made of the ‘heavens.’ Three koi fish ‘swim’ in these heavenly waters. The fish is a symbol of Christ, the number three is a symbol of the Trinity, and water represents the Holy Spirit.
The fact that he is surrounded by the heavens in significant. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit and surrounded by His presence, we are able to do and see the Lord’s will. This is our aim. Having this direction and clarity will keep us on the better path and away from destruction and fear.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:13-14
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. “ Romans 12:2
