Reality



At the end of the Old Testament Malachi makes an amazing declaration,
(Mal. 4:2) "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth and grow up as calves of the stall."
After the fall of man,
and all the suffering of Israel's generations,
          and all the sin,
              and despair,
                  and slavery,
                       there is a promise.


...God's last word is a promise of renewal - a renewing of the first chapter of Genesis...
A promise of Light
        A promise of Healing - (a Restoration of the Life destroyed.)
             A promise of Growth and Development.
After all the loss, the promise is Total Restoration through the Presence of God, and the Working of God in His people.


As time moves on we see an age of Opportunity Lost (to the Church and to the World).
Yet,even though all be desert around, God's word to us is that, in the measure of our fear in His presence, there is a promise, of...
  His Coming.
      His Healing
          His Working


There is a burning truth whose essence I feel incapable of transmitting.
It is this:


Among those of us who think ourselves enlightened,
there is a very vast majority which is like those who  gaze through a window and, standing outside, believe they are on the inside.

There are those who have heard the words, seen the anointing, felt an emotion and yet have never really experienced within themselves the life changing reality of being actually present before God.
These are left with a "form of Godliness, but denying the power thereof".
- a life of suppressed frustration and emptiness.


This is not something merely among those who sit in the congregation but something which seems to have overtaken the "leaders" of the church.
How few there are who minister from a place of Light and Life...the words about the Spirit have taken the place of the reality of the Spirit in ministry.


Yet the word is still true...if we seek with all our hearts we will find.
Let us rouse ourselves to press through the days and the nights until we find Him - and in Him find that Life which surpasses all our definitions, and springs in freshness throughout all our days.
