On the Road to Pentecost — Day 36
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:17
“And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.” Acts 6:8
God came that we might be saved.
But we have to go through Him — investing our lives in His Ministry — breathing on others, as God has breathed on us.
Hidden sin is not hidden to the Father. Though man tries to hide darkness, while working with the Light — man must realize that darkness cannot go through Him.
There is a call on our lives, for Holiness.
Without it, all our beliefs and understandings are not worth anything — but with the Truth, doors are opened to the depth of God’s Love, His Son’s Life, and the Holy Spirit being deposited deep within our lives.
Reconciliation, is at the risk of opening up to the Father — everything.
It’s the flesh, this part of our being — that was released underneath a tree, by Adam and Eve. Ever since, our nakedness gets in the way — of Holiness. We try to hide these things, and the Father asks, “Who told you to cover up your flesh?”
It is a unique concept — this Holiness rejected for nakedness. We might strive and push nearer to the Hem of His Garment — and once His Power is released into us — an exchange is necessary.
Flesh is meant for sacrifice — to be consumed in the Fire of God. It is His Nature, to restore you to what you once were, His child. So, He sent His Son — Adam (Jesus) — and He sent His Will.
But His Will felt uncomfortable, so the people killed Him — nailed Him to a Tree.
The devil behind the scenes — echoing the same whispers from Eden, that he said to Adam and Even, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Whispers like “Deny the Son of God, and you will be like God — knowing good and evil.”
Such a Lie; that people still believe this enemy’s whispers.
But, we are equipped — and have the Truth in us.
Such a Wise Plan Father God — that You deposited the Truth inside of us.
We call on our God who is Righteous — the Lord of Heaven and Earth — and He knows us personally, for His Son Jesus lives in us — having His Way through us. But there are others, that do not have Life inside of them — and that is our mission.
Take the Truth to the ends of the earth — release His Word, the Gospel of Peace into as many lives as possible, before we take our last mortal breath — and even then, our legacy should still be shouting to the next generation — God Lives!
Our life is a book, being written with every step that we take — and the conflicts within us, are overcome — by the Word of His Testimony.
Sometimes, we do encounter obstacles that seem insurmountable — but just wait on the Lord, and He will arrive just in time.
