The following is another attempt to use the goggle of Faith to weigh various inspired thoughts, on another blessed day.
1. Whenever Christ is yet to become the source of our soul’s security, a vacuum of insecurity would exist; even such that would see our souls rather consider scenarios that are to our advantage or that won’t make us look vulnerable before others. But when He is, we would by nature – like John the Baptist – always seek to decrease so He can increase in and through us (Jn. 3:30). Otherwise, we would keep falling prey to a strategy of the flesh; to a self-seeking nature that always seek to have an upper hand in conversations. Condescending in our hearts – like Christ always did – is a secret that should ultimately cause us to attain unto the righteousness of God (Rom. 12:16, Phil. 3:7-11).
2. One subtle way that hell shows up on earth is via the voice of the stranger; especially, when it poses or sounds like that of the Shepherd or that of the Holy Spirit during hours of temptation (Jn. 10:5). That voice always appeals to a nature in us that the Lord wants to deliver us from; even one that seeks to (unlike Jesus) be heard; known and seen, or to help us manifest prior to our day of showing forth; even in seasons when the Lord would rather hide us like an arrow in the quiver (Jn. 10:5, Lk. 1:80, Isa. 49:2).
3. Wherever there is meant to be an agreement or a walk between two or more parties and the contrary takes place, hell (sin or flesh) would show up or make itself manifest (Amos. 3:3, 2Cor. 5:7). Whenever there isn’t meant to be an accord or a walk between two or more parties and the contrary takes place, hell (sin or flesh) would show up or make itself manifest (Rom. 14:13, 2Cor. 6:14-16). But when a walk or an accord is selflessly born between parties against all odds; then, heaven (because of an activity of faith) would show up or manifest its presence in our hearts (Matt. 6:10, Lk. 18:8). So, heaven and hell are experiences that are presently taking place in men’s heart or daily conversations (Jn.3:13, Phil. 3:20, 1Cor.3:3).
4. After believers have been weaned in their souls from their first milk-faith meal, they are at the mercy of embracing the path(s) of righteousness where they should receive the revelations of the right way to live in mortal flesh; the way to live from above – so as to inherit a new name (Isa. 28:9, Ps. 23:3, Rev. 2:17). This is where heaven re-cultures or deprograms the law of haste that we fetched when we all engaged in the rat race of the earth; which makes both men of low or high degree – hustlers of all kinds (Ps. 23:3, Prov. 19:2, Isa. 28:16g, Ps. 62:9).
5. To check the measure of how qualitatively a soul can trust in God or has become His friend, heaven simply needs to check: the measure of the formation of Christ in Him; or how far they have hated the world and journeyed unto their inheritance of the promise; or how far they have prospered in their soul while journeying from faith to faith (Charity), because God only trusts Christ (Jam. 4:4, Heb. 11:13, Heb. 2:13).
6. There is a spirit that is anti-the way, anti-the truth, and anti-the life; even the spirit of the anti-Christ that seeks to give believers with a resolve to disinherit the world, a sigh of relief from the pressure faith that brings upon it. It can limit even a son of Charity from becoming a son of God. At such tempting seasons where their will would be proved like Jesus was at Jordan, it would use the trinity of sin (1Jn. 2:15) to tempt them to: seek their own way; choose their own definition of truth or seek another interpretation of life outside that which Christ authored; and only those who consistently confront their darkness with the revelations coming their way, can overcome it (Jn. 14:6, 1Jn. 4:3).
7. God can anoint his saints or servants to serve His people in carnal things or with anointings that influences our carnal needs; with provisions (children’s bread) like healing, miracles and financial breakthroughs (Matt. 15:22-26). But if He can’t afterwards wean us from that and teach or train us to really know or fear Him; to be content living a day at a time, then we will remain strangers to the secrets of His life (Eph. 4:20, Matt. 4:4, Ps. 25:14). The economy of the New Testament actually takes us far beyond the experiences of the old; into a new and living (faith) way where a deadly blow would be dealt unto our carnal or sinful nature, like it was with the early Church (Heb. 10:20).
