The highest calling, priority by revelation, is not becoming who’s who, or having lofty titles with success!
Nor are great groups that are seen swirling above, in and of pinnacles of success!
Yes, it may seem authentic with those who are well known by man’s standards. However it is contrary, when one finally finds nothing at the top of the pinnacle; only to be let down, bringing with it, spiritual burnout!
None even checked to see you coming; only you are going! As you watch others rise and you can’t say a thing; Why?
Because you are so familiar with the game. These see you as rejects and problems with their program. These see you as rejected and falling away, when you don’t continue along with them the same?
They count you lost and leave you abandoned, due to their own cost.
It isn’t man’s accolades and approval that bring you into momentum upward! Not realizing the spiral caught you and you were ensnared though man’s momentum to jump in and get with the program.
Such feeling and anointing?
Deception is just that; a lie, something that is felt and believed about! These received the deceptive truth as the leaders say, keep up the great work, no delay!
No one can continue that momentum without a crash. And they will, for all those who love my appearing will be real.
The religious spiral and the requirement to meet the needs, became your greed. How else can a engine be propelled up the mountain with no release or right strength?
Once the energy is spent and the spiral descends, then comes a wrench in the wheel which no man can heal.
You saw this as a seeming requirement of Me. Not realizing, you invested many years of man’s approval that led to the pride of life.
Those who will travel the highway of holiness is a place once you have seen, become the end of man’s prideful dream.
As we learn now to bow out of man’s plan, and down and out of old ways we come to the final end….. of self!
As through the years of becoming something, to becoming nothing, then to becoming everything to God! I have learned to become a vessel fit for the master’s use.
Keeping it simple, real, and keeping me innocent and childlike, is my goal.
Once we understand the child, and are able to see through child like ways, our understanding will be secure. What child can be secure without parents?
Paul was a Pharisee of the Pharisees and a learned man, the best of his religion. However His revelation of Christ along the road, set him on a new way and a new beginning. He spiraled down from his experience, yet God used all his experiences to teach the church even today.
God doesn’t want us to grow up to grow away from Him.
What we learn in life it is all about self sufficiency. In God it is just the opposite.
We are to find our sufficiency in God. Many of us had to grow out of religious systems that kept us bound. This bondage kept us from growing into childlikeness.
When we finally grow to be a child, and content in the palm of the Father’s hand; we learn to grow up is to grow down, humble as a child, In HIM.
“Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, and be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead,” Philippians 3:5-11 KJV
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
