FATHER’S Invitation

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

Isaiah wrote FATHER’S Word by THE SPIRIT in chapter 55:

1 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, ​​Come to the waters; ​​And you who have no money, ​​Come, buy and eat.

​​Yes, come, buy wine and milk ​​Without money and without price.

2 ​​Why do you spend money for what is not bread, ​​And your wages for what does not satisfy?

​​Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, ​​And let your soul delight itself in abundance.

3 ​​Incline your ear, and come to Me. ​​Hear, and your soul shall live; ​​And I will make an everlasting covenant with you— ​​The sure mercies of David.”

Why should we live a life of turmoil and scarcity when FATHER wants to bless us with peace, abundance and good health?  When you pose the question in this manner, the answer is obvious yet men seek their own way for they do not trust FATHER’S Word.  Their ego convinces them that they can go it alone without any assistance from someone they can’t see with their natural eyes.  Their fear outweighs any semblance of faith in their lives.  Until they get desperate in some aspect of their life, they will go their own way toward death and destruction.  It may be a slow process in some cases but the day will come when they must face the consequences of their chosen path.

FATHER says “Listen carefully to Me” to each of us so that there is no question of what HE is saying for HE desires our soul to live and flourish.  What more could we ask?  Is there a better future for any of us to consider besides this invitation?

FATHER’S Love motivates HIM to make this offer because HE wants the best for each of HIS children, no different than those of us who have children of our own.  In order for us to understand the requirements for choosing HIS way, HE reveals the problem at hand:

8 ​​“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, ​​Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.

9 ​​“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, ​​So are My ways higher than your ways, ​​And My thoughts than your thoughts.”

Our ways and thoughts are insufficient to bring forth the abundant life that FATHER is presenting in HIS invitation.  HIS invitation is one that requires a long-term commitment, not a single, temporary commitment which allows the person to return to their previous thoughts and ways.  Why would anybody return to a life of turmoil when they have the opportunity to live a life of peace and blessing?

Once we make the decision to accept HIS invitation, HE begins to redirect our thought life to HIS thoughts by instructing us to ​​incline your ear, and come to Me; ​​Hear, and your soul shall live.  For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.  When we hear FATHER and receive HIS Word in our hearts, we ascend to HIS ways by fully accepting HIS thoughts as our own.  This is Love’s standing invitation to each of us.  It takes trust and patience for us to fully embrace HIS ways since mankind has spent years indoctrinating us to rely on our own ways and means.  Make no mistake, HIS ways will fare exceed our greatest expectation if we will heed HIS Word in every aspect of our life.  What an invitation!

Glorifying FATHER

Sunday, October 21st, 2018

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in John chapter 13:

31 So, when he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him.

32 If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately.

33 Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come,’ so now I say to you.

34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Isn’t the final result of our maturing process meant to glorify Our Heavenly Father in all that we are and all that we do?  Jesus pointed out the one defining quality of being His disciple– Love.  If we do not walk in Love then can we claim to be one of His disciples?  Did Jesus focus on any other acts which people would look to if they were trying to describe a true disciple of Christ?  If our motivation is not born out of Love, then it does not glorify Our Heavenly Father.  Instead, it is based on some aspect of self interest.  I could write volumes in an attempt to convince the reader of the importance of this Truth but rather let The Holy Spirit minister this Truth to us today and let it be resolved in our hearts once and for all!  Selah.

Fear Of The LORD

Saturday, October 20th, 2018

Isaiah wrote by THE SPIRIT in chapter 11:

1 There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, ​​And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.

2 ​​The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, ​​The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,

​​The Spirit of counsel and might, ​​The Spirit of knowledge and of the [reverential and obedient] fear of THE LORD.

​3 ​​His delight is in the fear of the LORD, ​​And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, ​​Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;

4 ​​But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, ​​And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; ​​He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, ​​And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.

5 ​​Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, ​​And faithfulness the belt of His waist.

Our true understanding of the reverential and obedient fear of THE LORD will come to full maturity as we progress and mature in the other qualities of walking in THE SPIRIT.  As we increase in true wisdom and understanding, we are able to walk in The Spirit of counsel and might.  How can we give counsel without adequate wisdom and understanding?  Sadly, most people today do not seek out GODLY wisdom and understanding in their daily decision-making.  The immature tend to think they already have sufficient worldly wisdom and understanding to proceed with life-changing decisions and then wonder why they are enslaved by their own decisions and actions.  They will generally ask for advice from someone who will simply be a second witness to their poor decision or plan.  They fail to seek advice from those who have produced good spiritual fruit in the area of inquiry.

THE SPIRIT wrote in Proverbs chapter 11:

​14 ​​Where there is no counsel, the people fall;

​​But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

A key to this verse is finding the counselors who are mature and led by THE SPIRIT rather than those who have walked in a life of folly and have no good fruit to show for their past decisions.  As we mature in the Spirit of counsel, we will walk in greater strength and be “strong and confident” in THE LORD.  This will lead to greater knowledge in the ways of Our Heavenly Father and along with wisdom and understanding, true reverential and obedient fear of THE LORD will be fully realized in the deepest sense.

We must see and discern with faculties that are beyond the natural. We must see and understand by the Seven Spirits of GOD. Our minds must be renewed by the Spirit of Jesus, as we abide in Him and He in us. Only then can we judge righteously, and become that Testimony of Jesus in the earth that FATHER desires.  He shall not judge after the sight of His eyes. O how we need that Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of the Lord, if we are going to judge righteous judgment as Jesus intended! And that is why He is now enthroned in the heavens — that the same Spirit that was in Him might be poured out upon His chosen ones, the remnant, that there might be a continuation of His anointed ministry here in the earth.

FATHER is patiently dealing with the toxic tares growing in the field while HIS Called-Out Ones are maturing.  Would it be reasonable to say that until we have fully experienced the fear of THE LORD, we are still in the maturing process?

Abounding Love

Friday, October 19th, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Philippians chapter 1:

9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment,

10 that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ,

11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

The word “abound” means to have abundance, to excel, to exceed, to overflow.  As our love for FATHER and HIS family increases, HE is pleased to increase our knowledge and perception of truth. Powerful gifts and ministries without the fruit of the Spirit, can be destructive in the lives of those who have them.  There is a pure knowledge that comes forth from abounding love. True knowledge and discernment will be birthed out from Love… Love in its many facets of faith, truth, righteousness, endurance, patience, kindness, mercy, longsuffering. As we love HIM, we will begin to love what He loves and hate what HE hates. Like our Master we will "love righteousness and hate iniquity".

THE SPIRIT wrote in Psalm 45:

7 ​​You love righteousness and hate wickedness;

​​Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You

​​With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.

It is far beyond the gifts, for a gift can easily be tarnished with the motivation of carnal thoughts and ways. His gifts to us are rays of Light that we need, till we come to the Source of the Light, which is Christ Himself. And therefore we are admonished: "Follow after Love, and desire spiritual gifts" (1 Cor. 14:1).

Throughout the New Testament, FATHER continuously points us to Love and its fruits.  Once Paul’s eyes were opened by Our Lord Jesus Christ, his focus became Love and his writings centered around this revelation.  In Mark 3:17, Jesus gave John and James the moniker “sons of thunder” yet later, John became the Beloved Disciple.  He finally embraced the revelation of Love and thus was given the precious revelation found in the last writing of the New Testament.

The key to the treasury of riches of our inheritance is tied closely to our revelation of Agape Love.  Let our Love become abounding in nature and the Source of Light will shine brighter in us and cause others to be drawn to the light.

The Opening

Thursday, October 18th, 2018

In Matthew chapter 5:

1 And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him.

2 Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:

​3 ​​“Blessed are the poor in spirit, ​​For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 ​​Blessed are those who mourn, ​​For they shall be comforted.

5 ​​Blessed are the meek, ​​For they shall inherit the earth.

6 ​​Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, ​​For they shall be filled.

7 ​​Blessed are the merciful, ​​For they shall obtain mercy.

8 ​​Blessed are the pure in heart, ​​For they shall see God.

9 ​​Blessed are the peacemakers, ​​For they shall be called sons of God.

10 ​​Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, ​​For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

And in Matthew chapter 7:

7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?

10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”

FATHER is willing and eager to teach us by HIS Holy Spirit all Truth found in HIS Word.  Jesus was not reluctant to share the Gospel to those who sought Him out.  To knock means “a request to gain entrance”.  When Jesus opened His mouth, He was essentially welcoming those who had ears to hear to gain entrance into the Kingdom of GOD.  Those who are willing to be taught by Our Lord Jesus Christ will be given the opportunity to become His disciples and spread the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth.  Each of us must be willing to hear when The Holy Spirit opens the line of communication in order to lead us and guide us throughout each day.  We must not allow the “opened” mouths of carnal men to sway us into believing their doctrines and opinions which are contrary to FATHER’S Word.  In our society today, “fake news” is rampant and the truth is rarely expressed in a pure manner.

The world is a very complex place because mankind has caused it to be so.  No man or group of men can possibly sustain a society where all men and women are blessed and live in peace.  Only Our Heavenly Father has the capacity to restore peace on earth and goodwill toward all mankind.  This is why we must listen to and be led by THE SPIRIT.  There is no other solution to the problems we face today.  When FATHER opens HIS mouth to speak to us, let us receive HIS Words in spite of what man would have us believe.

The Blessing Of Knowing

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

One of the greater challenges we all deal with in these times is knowing FATHER has heard and is responding to our prayers.  First, our prayer requests reside in the spirit realm and then the physical responds and manifestation occurs.  The Beloved Disciple wrote in 1 John chapter 5:

14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

We must fully embrace these words which communicate FATHER’S promise to us.  It would seem simple but our minds are overrun with contradictory information which challenges the means by which FATHER operates.  The world is constantly throwing out alternatives of an inferior nature to deal with our problems.  For example, if I have a headache, I can ask FATHER to heal me of that headache.  The world promotes the use of an aspirin to treat the symptom.  An aspirin may be a convenient alternative to standing on FATHER’S Word but it will not build our trust and faith in HIM.  As we lean on HIM, our expectation of answered prayer grows.  It is our choice of which path we take.

Jesus clearly stated that there are different levels of faith: no faith, little faith, and great faith.  Which classification would each of us place ourselves in?  Are we committed to walking in great faith?  What is preventing us from doing so?  Those who believe we have no choice where everything is predetermined for us, effectively walk in little or no faith.  FATHER has given us the choice in how we live our lives and whether or not we want to pursue a life of great faith and trust in HIM.

“If we ask anything according to His will” is the key to success when we petition HIM in prayer.  These writings are meant to promote a deeper trust and reliance on FATHER and HIS Word so that when we pray, we will know we have the petitions we have asked of HIM.  This reliance must overcome all of the external input from the world we receive on a daily basis.  Advertisers and so-called “experts” constantly give us their opinions and solutions to our problems.  Our minds take in all of this rhetoric and challenges the Word when a problem arises.  We must develop our spirit man to become stronger than our mind and not allow our mind to rule our conduct and response.  Paul talks of this war in Romans chapter 7:14-25.  We must choose to walk in THE SPIRIT rather than in the flesh.

If we will immerse ourselves in HIS Word, then we will begin to see good fruit in response.  The key is to continue in the Word, not just read it once and say “I’m done.”  FATHER’S Word is multifaceted and those of us who have continued in HIS Word over time, know that there is always fresh revelation to be found in Scripture.  Jesus gave us this key in John chapter 8:

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide (continue) in My word, you are My disciples indeed.

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

The Truth shall make us free in what area of our lives?  All areas, for it is not restricted to just salvation but includes all the promises of Our Heavenly Father.  The blessing of knowing includes us being free from sin, sickness, and other hindrances to our walk with HIM.  The blessing of knowing requires us to trust Our Heavenly Father and HIS unwavering Word.

Wisdom And Revelation

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

By THE SPIRIT, Paul wrote to the saints who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus (you and I are included in the faithful of Christ Jesus):

17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power

20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

Paul is writing to men and women just like us and urging us to receive the “spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him”.  No matter how long we have been believers and no matter how mature we think we are, there is more wisdom and revelation to receive!  When we realize this, we will truly walk in the fear of THE LORD.  When Adam and Eve ate of "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil", they forfeited their fellowship with their Creator and they lost their fear of the LORD. The fear they had after they sinned, was not the fear that abides in one who loves FATHER and walks in fellowship with Him, but the fear that is born of disobedience, that causes one to hide from his Creator.

As we receive the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in a greater manner, the eyes of our understanding will become fully enlightened and past earthly priorities will cease to be.  No longer will the appeal of man’s direction be of any consequence to us and we will see the emptiness therein.  Replacing man’s riches will be the “riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints”.  When we get a taste of the true riches, our desire for the old will dissipate quickly.

FATHER’S mighty power will be revealed and imparted to those who walk in “spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him” for FATHER will find us trustworthy to operate in such fashion, not seeking personal glory but instead directing all glory toward Our Heavenly Father.  The preeminence of Jesus Christ will take His rightful place in the hearts of men and women around the world.  When this occurs, Heaven will come to earth in their lives and spread like wildfire to others thus covering the earth.

The resurrection of Christ will come alive rather than simply depicted in paintings and sculptures in historic churches of old.  Those churches will no longer be thought of as the place to receive spirituality but instead men will receive Christ in their hearts and be filled with The Holy Spirit.  FATHER’S mighty power will come forth through those who are mature in Christ and men will seek out the Wisdom from Above rather than attempting to guide their affairs by consensus of others.

There is no principality or power that can compare with the Wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.  Why should we seek elsewhere?  Let us not grow weary in our quest toward full maturity and let the eyes of our understanding be enlightened.


Monday, October 15th, 2018

Jeremiah wrote by THE SPIRT in chapter 1: Then the LORD said to me, "You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it."

The remnant fully trusts FATHER Word and knows that HE watches over and performs every Word HE speaks to mankind.  This has become an unwavering trust without any exceptions, restrictions, or deviations.  FATHER is not subject to man’s timing thus we are not moved by some standard man may set for FATHER’S Word coming to pass.  FATHER has given us the Wisdom and understanding to no longer be concerned about the calendar in HIS affairs.  Mankind, on the other hand, will speak forth words which often fall to the earth and whither away without producing any fruit whatsoever.  When they operate independent of FATHER’S Will, they simply become unfruitful and die.

FATHER’S Word is filled with blessing and promises to those who keep HIS Word.  Those promises tied to HIS Nature require us to trust and expect HIS Word to come to pass on our behalf.  FATHER has given us each a measure of faith so that we can receive HIS Word and allow It to come alive in us at a personal level.  As we continue in HIS Word, our expectation will grow because the Word begins to take preeminence over our self-interest.  This enlightenment allows us to begin to walk in Agape Love as Our Elder Brother did during His earthly ministry.

The remnant is not moved by current world events because of the preeminence of The Word and FATHER’S unfailing promises toward us.  We must not allow fear to enter our hearts when we watch and/or hear the dire conditions predicted by men who walk according to greed and their own wisdom.  As for the remnant, we do keep the promise in the verse mentioned above before our eyes at all times- FATHER is watching over HIS Word to perform it.

Does this mean that we will walk without opposition?  No, we will be tested in our faith and trust in HIS Word.  What we see is subject to change and we must not allow ourselves to be moved by trials but continue in FATHER’S Word through the trial with the peace that surpasses man’s understanding.

In John chapter 14, Jesus spoke:

23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.

24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.”

Jesus fully expressed FATHER’S Word every time He spoke.  He and FATHER are One!  Jesus told us to “keep” His Words and FATHER will Love us and dwell in us.  FATHER’S Spirit dwells in us so we should listen intently to HIS Spirit in all things so that we will walk fully and completely according to HIS Word in all our affairs.  This is not just wishful thinking but a reality to those of us who will embrace it.  Let us be moved by HIS Spirit even in the minor situations on a daily basis so that when something major arises, we will know HIS Voice and not be moved by the challenges set before us.  Let HIS Word prevail in all our actions and words we speak.

Come Out Of Her!

Sunday, October 14th, 2018

Mystery Babylon has three major subdivisions: political, financial, and religious.  Each aspect will have its lies and lawlessness revealed to the masses and the people will have their foundations built on sand shaken until all their perceptions have fallen by the wayside.

The remnant includes those who have seen through the emptiness of the current religious order and seek a close, direct relationship with FATHER. Our Lord Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit are deeply revered and honored as well.  The Law of Love is being fulfilled in their hearts so they no longer need to concern themselves with the 613 commandments and statutes nor the opinions of ministries who would have you believe that they have a special, unique pipeline to GOD.  The remnant rely on being led by THE SPIRIT rather than having man act as a “go between”.  Because of HIS Love, FATHER urges us with the following:

In the Revelation of Jesus Christ, chapter 18:

4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.

5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.”

Most of the remnant have been led away from the churches practicing religion.  These churches attempt to emulate a Holy environment with much fanfare but without the true spiritual fruit.  The remnant continues to be patient and prepares for the glorious day when Mystery Babylon’s fall is fully manifested.  The remnant worships the Father in Spirit and in Truth.

Let us be encouraged by what Brother Eby wrote:

God reminds you and me now, when we see Babylon made desolate, “REJOICE OVER HER, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.”  This is the day of reckoning, the day of judgment on this ungodly system.  It will be followed by peace and righteousness and glory and rejoicing!  It is indeed wonderful!  Only faintly can our hearts contemplate the wonder of such a day when the Babylon religious system exists no more, replaced with the manifestation of the sons of God and a universal outpouring of the Spirit of the Lord!  And while false prophets and calamity-howlers of every brand and hue are prophesying the darkest days of earth’s history soon to fall as a shroud upon the whole world, yet the word of the Lord tells a far different story.  To all the people in Babylon the Lord says, “Come out of her, my people!”  Make no mistake about it, precious friend of mine, every single person in Babylon is the Lord’s people.  And now we find, “Thy people shall be delivered, EVERY ONE that shall be found written in the book” (Dan. 12:4).  This is the day of victory, not of defeat.  It is the day when God is “bringing again Zion” (Isa. 52:8), that is, bringing all His people out of Babylon and establishing Zion as the city of God in the earth.  This deliverance is for “every one” that belongs to Christ, whose name is written in the book.  THERFORE, “Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets!”

             The whole system shall come to nought, and we shall see the establishment of HIS KINGDOM in righteousness throughout the earth.  Believe it, my beloved, He taught us to pray it, “”THY KINGDOM COME, Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.”  And this pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand!  “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever” (Rev. 11:15).  Truly, redemption means a “loosing away” from all of Babylon’s corruption.  And most especially is this essential from all of its religious tyranny and corruption.  And what a day of rejoicing that brings!

A Set of Appropriate Questions

Friday, October 12th, 2018

A beloved brother wrote:

“I certainly prefer a positive gospel to a negative one!  But it can easily spill over into ungodly superstition, and it explains the great conundrum of modern religion: that many people’s faith is not necessarily making them into better people, not establishing righteousness in their lives, not investing them with the mind of Christ or conforming them into the image of the Son.  How could it, seeing that religion is no longer about righteousness, but rather about success, health, and wealth; no longer about God’s will and plan, but about us; no longer about compassion, love, and a laid-down life, but our own physical and material needs?  To inversely paraphrase John F. Kennedy, what so many religious leaders today are essentially saying is, “Ask not what you can do for God; ask what God can do for you!”  I too want to be blessed!  I too am thankful to my heavenly Father when my needs are abundantly met!  But in turning God into a furry rabbit’s foot to ward off evil spirits and help us win the lottery, what chance is there that we will ever find transcendence in life or anything uniquely divine, heavenly, and spiritual?  More so, what chance is there that we will ever be liberated from the incarceration of the ego — the carnal mind?  If the one thing that can free us from the prison of the Self — the Christ-life — is changed into yet another shackle of the self-life, then we are damned to self-absorption forever!             

Within recent decades, several of the most famous international television pulpiteers have been exposed and their vast financial holdings have been publicized.  They have millions of dollars invested in their personal homes and property both here and abroad, while they fly around the world in their private jets, at the same time begging and pleading for money from the widows, the poor, and struggling families.  They live sumptuously the lifestyles of the rich and famous while those who support their grandiose programs are living as virtual paupers.  Where are those who are true harvesters of souls rather than those who gather (harvest) money?  Where are those who are building God’s kingdom rather than their own?  Where are those who truly feed the sheep?  Where are those who are not lifted up with pride?  Where are those who are not puffed up with their own importance?  Where are those who do not promote and exalt themselves?  Where is the preacher who doesn’t seek to ingratiate himself to the one with expensive clothes, luxury automobiles, fine homes, and all the marks of success and wealth?  Where is the weeping before the altar?  Where are those who refrain from using the world’s methods to conduct God’s business?  Where are those who do not charge for the gospel?  Where are those who do not have a ministry for sale?  Where are those who have not taken unto themselves the gold and the glory?  Where are those who are not displaying their flesh in their man-made promotions?              

Where are those of a broken and contrite spirit?  Where are those with the meekness and purity of the Lamb?  Where are those who have not brought the spirit of this world into their midst?  Where are those who do not put their picture on every page of their magazine and their name on everything they do?  Where is the simple message of the kingdom of God without the Hollywood extravaganza and showmanship?  Where is the worship in the beauty of holiness, in spirit and in truth, rather than musical entertainment?  Where are those who approach God with reverence and godly fear and do not treat the sacred things as though they were part of a carnival?  Where are those who have laid hold of God?  Where are the humble?  Where are the pure in heart?  Where are those that are conformed unto the image of the Son of God?  Where are the prayer warriors and the intercessors?  Where are those who proclaim the gospel of the kingdom of God without the slightest motive of financial reward for themselves?  WHERE ARE GOD’S TRUE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE HOUR?  Of this you may be certain — these will not be found within the halls of Babylon’s religion!  They will only be found among God’s faithful remnant who have received the call to come out of Babylon and, forsaking all, have gone unto HIM, without the camp, bearing His reproach, separated unto HIM ALONE. “ 

I could not have said it better myself!  Love is the key and we must not allow ourselves to grow cold in this revelation.  Instead, we must pursue it with greater focus.  The time is coming when the Truth will set the captives free from the lies of Mystery Babylon and they will need the Remnant to lead them into all Truth based on a foundation of Love!
