All of the inspired Word of God was writ that man may come into Christ, and once rooted in this unmovable foundation, that he may be enlightened and ushered into the full expression of the divine life in all themes. Thus is decreed the mandate of His Divine Oracles. This is what ought to be with His church.
This was God’s intent with the shadow of the church – the nation of Israel under the old covenant. God had called them as a Holy Nation; His original intent was that “they should be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people…and you shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and an Holy Nation.” Exodus 19:5, 6
The pages of Sacred Writ record that this intent of God was not met because of the stubbornness of the people – a deficit in character born and completely nurtured under the influence of Lucifer. Like Lucifer wrought in the people of the old covenant, he seeks to do same in these our times with the church; he seeks to rent God’s chosen fabric and separate the pieces so that not all of it is embroided with the golden threads- which speak called and chosen and faithful. Lucifer’s intent is that many in the Beloved will fall from embracing the fullness of the divine calling and intent. This ought not to be so!
It has always been the Devil’s preserve to churn out in the midst of God’s people outworkings of deception that cumulate in doubt, unbelief and schism. Throughout the earthly ministry of the church, the arch deceiver has bent all the resources at His command to create the delusion among God’s people that of revelations unveiled, it is only the place of a chosen few to embrace.
He has created the dark delusions in the hearts of many that all scripture is not relevant and vital for our consumption. But hear the word of God as the apostle John is inspired to write…He says that believing, you may receive…lay a hold on…express zoë through His name! For this cause, it has been written:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God!”
The Spirit of God, seeking to teach us the “how to” embrace and express the higher life in Christ opens to us Instruction with these words. The highest theme is the vital and invigorating power of the Word! Selah.
As long as the church remains unmoved at the unsounded depths of such truths, labeling them as abstract doctrines and pushing them to the realm of irrelevancy, then Lucifer will seem to continue to rend the very fabric of the body of Christ. This calls for a re-orientation in the path of many sons of the Kingdom.
All of revelation unveiled- in all its unsounded depths, in all its unheard harmonics: all of revelation unveiled belongs to every one of the members of the body of Christ. This divine fact carries no exception! This Divine fact makes no distinction between laity and clergy…it unifies all and declares that for this cause you have been called to be made partakers of His glory! II Thessalonians 2:14
Our revelation into the Living Word; that is the doorpost to which we must be hinged if we are to open into this life we have found in Christ. Its expression in us is entirely hinged to our revelation into the Living Word- the person who is our Lord Jesus Christ! To this necessity, there remains absolutely no place for compromise!
