I will speak of myself, for it is impossible for me to know the heart of anyone who might read this. I do not want to give confidence where it is not warranted. But I find desire within me to encourage those things that warrant encouragement. And I desire to share a mutual amazement.
When I ponder the Glory of Christ within me, I am astounded. That I should contain the Gospel of the Glorious and Eternal God! That I should not be tossed about by all the rumors regarding him. But that I should know the Holy and Living God in Christ Jesus his Righteous and Holy Son.
When I think of the billions who have died without this knowledge, I am amazed that this man should understand. I say “knowledge”, knowing that it is only in small portion. And the same is true of the word “understand”. But that there is a seed in me is undeniably true. And the joy of this knowledge goes far beyond words to express.
There are many who hold what they say is the Gospel, yet are thoroughly hard-pressed to give account of themselves. This too, adds to my amazement. Not that they are at all amiss, but that I should know the truth. In this great joy there is no room for judgment or comparison! Oh that I could live this way all my days!
For the glory of Christ! Again, for the Glory of Christ! These words are placed prominently for the Glory of my Lord.
Let all the world hear. Let all the world be told. I will not shrink back into the sea of men. I cannot, for he sustains me in “The Way”. No enticement shall bind me! No tears of beckoning shall sway me. Such things have no hope of any Life. They are like the useless tapping of bird’s feet on my roof.
Can you agree with these things? Do you find proof in your soul that the Living God has come to you with all his Glorious Promises? Then say “Amen” full of thanks, for the willingness to obey which lives in you with endless strength.
I do not need to perceive your agreement. Who am I that I should demand any such thing from any man? But render your agreement and thanks to the Living God in his Holy Son. And let what is unseen receive what is rightfully his.
Let us all go to the Holiest Holy of Holies. Let us spread our soul before the Light and Life of all creation! There, in that place, let us render to God what is God’s. There, in that place, we shall be as one. There, in that place, we shall be at peace and unity.
He has spoken, there are far fewer of his people than those who are destined to destruction. But do not think I say such a thing with malice, or boasting. For I have not received this joy because I am a righteous man. It is God’s mercy to teach us these things, and to cause us to become his children. And anyone who desires this place I have described, is welcome to come share in the things of joy.
Are you a filthy person? That need not remain your case. All you need to do is believe that God’s Holy Son is Glorified in the very presence of the Most High God.
But in the beginning of your transformation, do not believe the weakness of lies; those words which tell you that belief is the end of your responsibility. There are many who have gone out of Christianity. They spout such a weak expectation. And sadly they have destroyed millions.
If you are to receive this joy, it will require you to agree with the Holy Lord in all that he commands you to do. You cannot be his, and remain bound by the things for which you are now ashamed. He will grant you release but you must receive it. If you are to attain this joy you must become his disciple.
But indeed come, all who will! Come and share with us in this scourging from men! See how they hate you, they do not love you! They only love the things they can take from you. They only love you in that they may debase you and use you for no good purpose. Why would you willingly submit to such things?
See how boldly his children proclaim their love for him. See how fearless they are. Yet you can see how full of fear your soul remains. Why would you not desire freedom?
