I experienced something recently that brought back something I came to know of, years back.
I have no desire to be too blunt; or shout out what I think I know. Would any of us dare to stand in the face of God, and tell Him what we think He ought to do and how He should do it?
There’s a message going out in this hour,
- That: God is not watching what we are doing.
- That God doesn’t care about it; He’s not going to do anything at all…..
- If He disapproved of us, He would have told us by now.
Since judgment has not been swift, we think God must not be too concerned about the way we are doing things. In more than one place, the prophet talked about men that are “settled on their lees.”
It means that they are just sitting back comfortably and letting things go on as they are — don’t rock the boat or don’t make waves, as we used to say. In the old day, God punished His own people for doing that. Nullified their place.
While struggling to get back to the Father, I was told by some who became spiritual, that I should listen for the message — not to focus too much on the messenger.
You see, I thought that one person sharing his thoughts, didn’t have the right enough attitude about things.
Can you imagine the lost son on the way home, criticizing other people along the way? It had not occurred to me, that God could speak something through that person; something I so desperately needed to hear.
I was flipping through the channels on the television, when I came across a minister’s program that I don’t particularly like or care for. I don’t approve of what they are doing. Using the name of Jesus to make money, makes me very sad and it leaves an unpleasant taste in my mouth.
To shorten the story… the man suddenly quoted something from the scriptures; and his guest said that he believed it also. It was about the devil being cast down, full of wrath, because his time is so short.
Would you believe, it was the answer to a question I had been looking for. An explanation for the tremendous hatred and rage we are seeing in our land and in our world today!
I felt the unction of The Spirit when this brother said it. You see, I can call him a brother now, when I wasn’t. We don’t have a handle on everything God is doing, or who He might use to do it.
He said he would confound those who think they are so wise. God spoke through this person, to reveal something to me.
Many of us don’t do Word of Wisdom and Word of Knowledge the way we once did. Oh, many try, even on here. But if you are seeking to be full of The Spirit, you can easily discern that it’s flesh talking. It has an uncertain sound; you can hear more of the person coming through.
All true proclamations are done with the Fruit of The Spirit. The Holy Ghost doesn’t have to say human things like, “You better listen to what I’m saying or else.” He indeed warns, but not in a brassy tone.
Do we all truly believe The LORD is going to do a mighty work before He returns?
I believe that with all that is in me. There are too many people who have never seen what is the true power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost.
We once knew that the world is looking for the real thing; that includes our young people too.
There’s nothing that can compare to the deep moving of The Holy Spirit of God. Let us let God do what He wants to do.
Let’s help Him, or simply stay out of his way!
