Great and Unsearchable Things

Things the Lord gives me, and then I write them.

Little Lights

     Little lights on a black grid all around the United States is what my daughter once saw in the spirit, which represented God's sons and daughters. It looked kind of like a starry sky at night. What it also said to me is that because they were not arranged in clusters, like they would be if each "church" was represented, that "not all of Israel is Israel." In other words, all who call themselves His, are not necessarily His, in Spirit and in Truth. Afterall, He says that the tares (false sons) grow alongside the wheat. (true sons)
     He tells us that those who are His do the will of the Father. We don't just claim faith, but we respond to that faith in obedience, or atleast in desiring His will over our own, trusting Him to change us inside to enable us to do that will. We don't justify our own actions or self. We let Him "have us" so to speak, so that we can do His will and we love His will and honor it. We understand that we are not our own, but that we have been bought with a price, and we love that ownership He has over us, knowing that He is all wise, and that our own self-will is nothing but filthy rags, full of unclean ways and motives. In fact, our own selves, get in our way, and we despise in us what interfers with His will, which is our flesh. He tells us in our flesh is no good thing, and we know it and believe it, as we've experienced it first hand.
     So, the whole creation groans and travails for the manifestation of the sons of God. Who is who and who is true? So many in America claim sonship and yet go about fulfilling their own wills, justifying that by claiming the Scripture, "delight yourselves in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart," knowing nothing of denying themselves to follow Him and His will for their lives. It seems to be the ultimate case of "wanting your cake and eating it too." In truth, if we truly do delight ourselves in the Lord, His will and His desires will be our own.
     It may be for now, in many cases, that the Lord is having His family live apart to develop them individually, so that they can learn to hear His voice. The herd mentality, or consensus, when heard through carnal ears, brings false direction and understanding, where one influences another. He could be doing this so that His true ones are not tainted by the crowd who is being led astray; those who don't love the truth.
      I am only speculating, of course, but that's how it is in my life currently. There seems to be no one who wants to fellowship around the Lord anymore. Most of the talk and focus is about SELF- that loathsome creature who pushes to the side our Lord.
     "Where two or three are gathered, there I am in the midst of them" He says, and this may be the way it will be from now on until His return. He may want us to be content with that occasional fellowship that comes our way instead of what we formerly had and may desire. Let His precious Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Pray for the strength and endurance of the faith of the saints in this time of seeming isolation.
