Folly is an unruly woman; she is simple and knows nothing.
For all the arguments and speech forum that humanity would hold, for all the banter that sails across airwaves, the word of GOD is the final authority and indeed the Bread of life. I often wondered along with a group of other people who feared the Lord, why it was easy for people to accept every jargon out there, happily house and habituate sin in their bosom and then argue till they were blue in the face about the truths of the Bible. The veterans in my ‘wonder group’ wisely declared that the conviction in the word of God spurs the flesh to react positively or negatively. The Word will not be ignored, there will be a move towards the faith that saves, heals and builds-up or a move towards foolish proliferation that leads to incurable hardness and damnation. Yes I used the word ‘DAMNATION’ and I was not scared to.
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
You see the same God that clothe Himself in humanity (humility) and reached out nail-scarred hands in mercy is the same God that will sit at His throne to judge that humanity. You cannot indulge in one and wrestle with the other. He came as a babe born in a manger, to lovingly and rigorously carry-out the mercy cloaked act of redemption. Next time around, He will be coming on a white horse, and I know for sure it will not be to debate how we heard the gospel and if it was presented in a ‘politically correct’ manner. He sure will not debate the accent or the origin of the message deliverer, neither will He clobber them for not turning on the air conditioner as they cried out about the agonies of hell.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
The past month has been the best of my life. I have seen God show-up, show-out and show-down. I have entered into an incredible rest of knowing that God is indeed a”‘Rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.” No act of love is hidden from His eyes just as no act of wickedness is. I have been so overwhelmed with His faithfulness and goodness, that demonic and fleshly jargon do not even move a hair on my head. God is holy and awesome and is to be revered. Think on these things; if He was a joker, why should I let His Spirit work in me, while others carouse and demand the gospel be not offensive? I would join the fools and comfort my wayward flesh.
Every tear, pain, ridicule, rejection and what have you was worth the journey, because CHRIST was in it and allowed it. I am not half-way through, but from what I saw this past couple of weeks the sweetest part of life is living in Spirit and in Truth. The speech makers and buzz creators can keep at it, while I sit prettily with my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I would love to lay prostrate on my face, but He bade me sit… SWEET!!!
You who turn justice to wormwood, And lay righteousness to rest in the earth!”
Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
