I heard, “Now, the Vision will speak in your favour.”
Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians.
We saw from our last discussion, that Christ profits you nothing, when you go back to the of circumcision.
Then we hear the apostle continue;
“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by The Law; ye are fallen from grace,” Galatians 5:4.
“Christ is become of no effect unto you….” The effect of the Cross, the power of the Grace of God, the riches of the life of Christ are nullified in your life. The advantage of knowing the saviour is completely abrogated in your life.
But why? “Whosoever of you is justified by The Law…..”
Not as though anyone could! For by The Law, there shall no flesh be justified before God.
The meaning then is this, if you seek to be justified by the works of The Law, and by your invalid estimation, reckon yourself to be righteous before God by it. Christ is completely of no advantage to you. You render him ineffective in your life.
And then we hear, “Ye are fallen from grace…”
Fallen from Grace? I thought The Law was higher than the Grace of God!
Oh grace, is the higher life of the Christian. You are born from above and not from earthly Sinai. A lot of people make it look as though The Law is the higher standard of life, and people are looking for an excuse to live under the Grace of God.
Going back to the works of The Law, is living your higher spiritual life, down to the mundane. Leaving your heavenly seat with Christ as the son of his love, reigning in life with him, to where you fall down to the earth and are try to rich up to heaven to bring Christ down by your works.
A very bad picture if you would imagine it….
Don’t be like the fallen angel. You are already a child of God, a partaker of the divine nature. An heir of God, an heir of The Kingdom, full of God’s Wisdom and Power.
You cannot be stopped; you are the light of the world; you are a city set upon the hill that cannot be hidden.
If I was not a child of God myself, I won’t lie to you, I wouldn’t have helped, but envied you all my life.
You are made blameless, spotless and predestined for greatness in Christ.
See you tomorrow….
In an exciting encounter with The LORD which looked as though a movie I had seen before, I saw a child of God in a race competition, I saw him run so well with the opponent. But it was quite a tight race.
Then as they approached the finish line, this child of God and his opponent were at the same pace, side by side, same speed it looked as though it would be a tie as they crossed the finish line.
After the race, there was a waiting time for the announcement of the winner, as the officials were keenly observing the race.
I saw this Child of God, not knowing the outcome but sensing it just has to be him, waiting and looking expectantly at what the officials would announce.
It was a shock though, but as the announcements were made. I saw this Child of God jump up with joyous celebration, for it was judged to his favour! He had won the race!
I was led to;
“And The LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry,” Habakkuk 2:2-3.
Then The LORD said, “My dearly loved one, know that you are in My Will, and have been running with My Vision upon your life.
It has been hard I know, but you have been strong and unrelenting in the race in the face of opposing forces.
I know It is your greatest desire to see the fulfillment of My Vision upon you. You have crossed the finish line, now is the appointed time.
You are at the end and now, the vision will speak in your favour and not lie. Though it tarry, wait for it, having a confident expectation of good, for it is now coming to pass and will no longer tarry.”
Blessings in Christ,
