There is much being said today about spiritual maturity and
sonship. Yet results and change in lives is often elusive
and many feel they can go on only if some new doctrine or
challenge is placed before them.
In the beginning God said, “Let here be” . .
. and it was. The Word of God was creative and produced substance.
In Revelation 3, the Laodicean church was proud and satisfied
with spiritual gifts and enablings—“Because thou
sayest.” The Word of the Lord to them was “Buy
Gold tried in the fire.” God is looking for characteristics
of the divine nature to be produced in our lives. Words are
of no value unless they become creative and produce the image
and likeness of Jesus Christ in our lives.
We live today in the Laodicean age. Multitudes are being
filled with the Spirit. Programs to entertain those in the
charismatic movement abound. Here and there is the faint voice
of those going through the dealings of God; stripping away
all that is carnal, earthly, those with vision to ascend into
higher realms in God . . . those who desire to purchase Gold
tried in the fire. It is not what we do, but what we become
that is important. This must be understood else we fail to
stand in the press of life.
