The Almighty all wise God, in His benevolence, love, and
condescension, has invited the children of men to become partakers
with Him, in the dispensing of His great affairs.
"We then, as workers together with Him," II Cor
Many there are who work for God, but how few become co-workers
with Him. This is what He calls for. Examine yourself, search
and see if you are willing to:
deny self - cease from your own works and enter into His
come under Divine control - become a living sacrifice, giving
up the initiative and letting God.
Such a determined sacrifice seems exacting and severe. But
when the whole burnt offering is consumed, we discover that
what appeared to be loss is actually gain. What appeared to
be bondage has become the greatest liberty. All restrictions
disappear, and we step out into a great expanse.
Becoming thus one with God in His purposes brings us into
the immensity of God. That which is lost, we are better off
without. Only enlargement and abilities, indeed the vast resources
of Divine inheritance are at hand, ready for use as needed.
"But my God shall supply all your need according
to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus" Phil 4:19.
Every member of our being is to be yielded and crucified
afresh. We must hold steady for there are great things ahead
for us. We must seek the Lord at this critical time. "As
I was with My servant Moses, I will be with you."
We are to keep the vision before us. There is a clear change
in the movings of the Lord. If we do not get into the Spirit,
to be taught and led by the Holy Spirit, we will not be able
to partake of these new things of God. We will be left behind
and fall short of the needed preparation for the plans and
workings of the Lord. We will not be ready when He comes.
The Holy Spirit must lead us forward, step upon step. Advancing
steps are before us. Without the guidance of the Holy Spirit
we are in the dark. George Fox said he was sent to bring men
from man's teachings to their Teacher, the Holy Spirit. Where
He is the Teacher, there is safe advancement. Where He is
not teaching, there is no progress. How sadly He is neglected.
The time for carelessness is disappearing. The Lord is after
each one of us. Will we diligently seek the Lord while there
is opportunity? Soon it will be too late! Will we be warned?
Many will perish in the awful storm.
Because revelation and prophetic wisdom have been neglected
and often rejected and man's teachings and explanations of
inspired writings substituted, the mass of current teachings
concerning the return of Christ and end time events is in
confusion. Many are being misled thereby. They think to be
in the Bride Company, yet are deceived into making no adequate
There is such a shallow conception of any proper and essential
preparation to become a part of the Bride Company.
"Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory
to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come
and His Bride has made herself ready.
And it was given to her to clothe herself
in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine
linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
And he said to me, Write, Blessed are those who
are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
And he said to me, These are the true words of
God" Rev 19:7-9 NAS.
