(See Revelation, Chapter 5, verses 1-14 while reading this. The Holy Spirit now reveals the spiritual insights into the Scriptures.) Great joy has now been given the saints! and who shall understand it but they alone? Thereby has sorrow been banished. Great grace has been given to His elect! and who shall receive it except those who have known and trusted His Word from the beginning. Is not His great love for His own? And shall they not be informed who have partaken of it since the beginning? Therefore, walk now, all ye in the knowledge of the Most High without any misunderstanding of His meaning: and that to His exultation of His intent. Even to the perfection of His knowledge. Be ye all of one mind. For His thought was like a love letter; His will descended from on High. It was sent to pierce hearts like an arrow which is violently shot from a bow. Many hands rushed to the letter to seize it and to take and read it. But it escaped their fingers and they were frightened at it and the seal that was upon it. Because it was not permitted them to loose its seal: for the power that was over the seal was greater than they. Yet, those who saw it pursued after the letter rather than its spirit that they might know where it would settle, and who should read it and who should hear it. But the Lord brought ‘a wheel’ (the travel of this letter) to receive it. And so the wheel came over it. (It traveled to all the world). There was with it a sign of the Kingdom of God, and His true government. And everything which tried to move (alter or change) the wheel it mowed and cut down. It gathered against it a multitude of adversaries. And yet, it bridged the rivers (of opposition) and crossed over them. It rooted up many forests (overturned the confusing ideas and opinions of many minds) and made a broad path. (It made clear and understood everything). The haughty and proud ones became humbled. For to the meek and humble ones traveled the wheel of its progression. The letter was one of command. There were included in it all churches and religions. And there was seen as its Author, the originator Himself (Jesus Christ), even the Son of Truth from the Most High Father. He inherited and took possession of everything. And the thought (concerning God’s Word) of many was proven void. All the apostates then hasted and fled away. And those who persecuted and were enraged became extinct. The letter became a great volume, (the Holy Bible), which was wholly written by the finger (Spirit) of God. And the one name of the Father was on it, and of the Son and Holy Spirit, to reign forever and ever. Hallelujah and Amen!
In our spiritual walk with the Lord we often ignore the most obvious things. Many little missteps can trip us up and make us fall. Here are some signs that we should watch for along our daily walk…. 1. Are we truly listening to the Lord Jesus Christ and His guidance, or are we really trying to do it alone? 2. Do we awake each morning to start the day with Him, or are our own concerns more important? 3. Do we walk in His Light, Life, and Love, or is it the shadows of darkness, death, and fear that the world offers? 4. Do we see the dangers that exist on our path, or do we blindly step into them heedlessly? 5. Does this path that we have chosen weary us, or do we continue to patiently persevere no matter how difficult it may be? 6. Are we looking forward, in the direction of the Master, or are we looking back to what we have left behind? 7. Finally, do we trust and obey the Master, or do we follow our own judgments regarding the way? I admit, that putting “feet to the path” is hard. But I have also found that “marching to your own drummer” is harder! Therefore, since we do KNOW “the Way, the Truth, and the Life”: let us walk with the Lord in the Light of His Word. Amen.
