I was reading earlier, that with the opening of a particular seal, there were four angels, sent to the four corners of the Earth. They were to stop the wind from blowing. There would be no wind on the seas, through the trees, and so forth. At the last moment, another mighty angel appeared, and told them to stop. They were to wait until a seal had been placed upon the foreheads of the Servants of God. Something, was stalled.
It’s never been more clear to me, that we are not going to have any true understanding of this particular Book, unless the Spirit gives it to us. Our timing, is not God’s timing. The very idea that a thousand years, is as one day to Him, denotes our limited scope. I also have never been more convinced, that certain things are truly going on now, and have been transpiring for a long time. Things we are not, and never have been, aware of. By not continuing to totally focus on the leadership of the Spirit, we are, way behind.
Ask yourself, if we had truly been lead to continue to search the deeper things of the Spirit, allowed and promoted all of His Gifts to function as they were meant to do, and the order of the ministries had been kept in place as they were set by God, in the church, where would we be today. How much more would we know about God’s ways; what places, what realms would we now realize, in the Spirit. Often, people do not search for food, until they get very hungry. They do not miss the water, until the well has gone dry.
Great tragedy is happening in other parts of the world; there are those who are dying for the cross of Christ. But we’re not. There are parts of the earth shaking there, but little here. War is raging in such desperate ways; there is so much suffering; but little here.
I ask myself, why? It has already begun here; but not on the same scale. I wrote a note a couple nights ago entitled, “God is watching Us.” I was glad, I was led to delete it. Perhaps, I will be allowed to say this one thing: We remain, in the balances; God, is waiting.
What, you will say, is He waiting for. For one, how we feel and how we think, about those who are giving their lives today. Do we deny them; do we discount them; do we claim them as members of the Body of Christ. You see, the Holy Ghost spread all over our land at times. We clearly understood, we were to take the Gospel and this Holy Ghost message, to the whole world. We had more of the means to do that, than any other nation. We were given the very privileged task, of reviving the early church; in its entirety. Did we?
Jesus, told us of these times. Only now, are some of us hearing what He said. As in most of the others, the last church mentioned, was given a chance to repent. The voice of Old still rings, “If my people, will turn.” Everything in me, feels God, is waiting to see what we do . I am reduced to pleading. What saith, the Holy Ghost.
