Tested, Challenged, and Enabled to Go Higher
Some have asked for help “understanding” (without resisting God out of carnal pity) in these Days… Why do many, irregardless of self-perceived “status”… seem to be Tested, even found wanting, and Challenged and Enabled to go Higher…
IT IS OUT OUT OF FATHER’S COMPASSION!
Lazy, sloppy, assumptive, gossipy, social, blabbery, fun-entertainment, “fellowship”-driven lifestyles are NOT what Father is after in HIS Kingdom. Such a lifestyle will not survive the War, let alone Contribute “fruit that will last” in the heat of that War.
Asking all to “reConsider” their “flow” and tighten up—is HIS MERCY. Such a Challenge to a comfortable religious lifestyle without much personal Depth or Oil, just a “reputation” or “sweetness” or supposed “sincerity” … that inward Challenge should not be opposed within oneself, or diminished by others who wish to say, “Oh, don’t worry about it, you’re FINE.” That is actually not compassion—but just flesh “playing hero.” Let’s be more humble and discerning than that if we want SUPERNATURAL LIFE FROM HEAVEN, rather than just something Powerless of this earth, with counterfeits of knowledge and comfort.
SO! Embrace a Season of God’s Kindness to not let us fall asleep without your OWN Oil for the Fire of His Light and Liberty and Power!
Please read these carefully….
“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
6 “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ 7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.
11 “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ 12 But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’
13 “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour[b] in which the Son of Man is coming.”
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. 12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel…22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there).26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
