Rev 15.2

“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and

them that had gotten the victory over the beast and over his image…”

 

The Bible frowns on images over & over. John was inspired (allowed, one might add) to tell of an upcoming satanic image that will have life, speech, & power (Rev 13.15). If you’re in a group that worships images (could be argued that an icon is simply a two-dimensional statue) please leave. “But, this is all I’ve known all my life!” Cry out to God. He is incomparably greater than all man’s statues piled together & can/will lead you to Himself, if you obey His leadership. Have a great trip toward God!

“Repentance implies a willingness to be known and estimated according to one’s real character.”

– George               Shaw, /Spirit in Redemption/

 

Do not wait for the next revival at your local house of worship. Do not postpone your need till camp meeting. Do not wait for Bro So-n-So to initiate an extra prayer meeting. Start your own personal move toward God. Get rid of that shadow between you & Jesus. Talk to (in person is best) that relative/friend to whom you owe an apology. You may not live to see a greater result than your own private “revival” but that alone is so very important for you.

Where’s he bound?

Judge not a man by his origins,

The banks and borders he called home,

Before he came to where you saw him

Before he from that place did roam.

 

It’s not our point of origination,

Not old country nor older creed

That decides the worth of earth’s traveler

Nor even present movements or deed.

 

Which way is his nose pointed?

If he were (he’s far more) a hound

You’d know by the set of his head

The direction his heart is bound.

 

Judge not a man by his home,

Judge by where he’s going,

Judge by exerted efforts,

Judge by his daily toiling.

1Jo 4.1

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God:

because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

 

Candles do not “try to shine.” They light their surroundings without “trying.” Light & candles go together. A word of caution though; as they banish the darkness about them, they themselves are consumed.

“…True fear comes from faith; false fear comes from doubt…”

– Blaise Pascal, fr. his Pensees

 

Worldly-minded ministers (& their un-saintly boards) create “worship services” to suit carnal hearts. If one or more of them have seen a Spirit-lead service they may try to imitate its holy “freedom” by one “music” or other means. This may fool those who’ve never known a Holy-Ghost-lead-service but it will not fool saints. It may sound overly simplified but in reality, all church services are either lead by the Blessed Holy Spirit or they are lead by His enemy, the spirit of the pit.
