I was watching the podcast I’m sharing with you today, and Ellen said: listen to this — and, then read me these two verses:
Isaiah 65:16 “Because he who is blessed in the earth Will be blessed by the God of truth; And he who swears in the earth Will swear by the God of truth; Because the former troubles are forgotten, And because they are hidden from My sight! 17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind. (NASB1995)
I’m listening at the time she reads this, to these guys on this podcast talk about God intervening in their life with truth with which to do battle in this earth at this time, and one even goes as far as saying that it becomes overwhelming to think about where it is we as a country will end up, and God through Ellen interjects the answer as I just explained. What did that say to me? What does it say to you?
I can’t answer the second question, but I can answer the first. So many times just this type scenario happens with something I am being inspired by God to work on. Paul says that we are to consider ourselves dead in Christ. I find that the life of Christ in me springs to life when I am in His Spirit. When I am doing just what I am doing right now as a dead man living in His flow of truth. His truth comes alive in us when our truth is dead. It’s like the parable Jesus taught us on the sower. We the soil are only useful to Him in growing His fruit if we are completely given over to him. He must remove the rocks, and til our soil (our inner man) up and mix in the fertilizer; add in rich soil with our fallow soil; then we can produce His fruit. In other words yielding our lives to Him is our only hope of seeing this promising future, which is where we are going. If we are not now useful in His hand; then we must be remolded in order to be made useful.
If your life is not dead to self and steeped in Him; then you need to consider what this message and podcast is saying. If you amen this; then this message is one you know well, but you may know others who could benefit from it. If so show your love for them and for the Lord who directs our path by sharing it with them. Pray about that, and do as you are led.
Only His truth matters. Only His fruit in our life will do us or anyone else any good.
