The Plumb Line

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Amos 7:

7 Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand. 8 And the LORD said to me, “Amos, what do you see?”

And I said, “A plumb line.”

Then the Lord said:​

​​“Behold, I am setting a plumb line

​​In the midst of My people Israel;

​​I will not pass by them anymore.

9 ​​The high places of Isaac shall be desolate,

​​And the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste.

​​I will rise with the sword against the house of Jeroboam.”

A plumb line allows the wall to be erected perfectly true and upright. By this reference, all construction will be completed.  Otherwise, the wall will lean and be subject to failure over time.  It is also written by THE SPIRIT in Isaiah chapter 28:

16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:​

​​“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,

​​A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;

​​Whoever believes will not act hastily.

17 ​​Also I will make justice the measuring line,

​​And righteousness the plummet (a plumb line);

​​The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,

​​And the waters will overflow the hiding place.

The Sons and Daughters are called to be a plumb line for all others to be compared.  We are called to be upright in all our ways and expose unrighteousness wherever we go.  We will not lean to our own understanding but trust in and rely on The Holy Spirit WHO has perfect knowledge and discernment of how we are to minister and show us who is ready to repent.  We are not to judge others for we do not have perfect knowledge.

As we are led by The Holy Spirit, we will expose and sweep away the refuge of lies… and there are plenty of lies needing to be swept away.  FATHER will place us in situations where the Truth will come forth so that which is perfectly true and upright will replace the wickedness with righteousness.  FATHER’S goodness will be seen and will draw men unto HIM through you and me as we minister the Good News.  Confusion will be replaced by revelation.

There will be no unbelief found among the elect as our level of trust in FATHER’S Goodness comes to full maturity.  Our plumb line will not swing in the wind of man’s doctrines but will be perfectly still, even when the storms come.  Our wall of righteousness will stand firm for it is part of the Cornerstone of Christ.  This wall will extend out and will not fail.

Do you have concerns about where you stand in your maturity as a Son or Daughter?  Ask FATHER to reveal any sifting required in order for you to achieve 100% purity.  Be willing to accept whatever surfaces requiring repentance and be grateful HE has revealed it to you for it is by HIS Goodness that HE wants to use you and fulfill HIS purpose in you. 

Jesus spoke in Matthew 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! 12 Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

As we fully realize HIS Goodness, we will walk in Agape Love toward others thereby fulfilling the Commandment of Love.  We will become passionate about ministering to the unsaved.  FATHER will give us good gifts to fulfill our individual callings.  We will no longer ask amiss but will ask, seek, and knock according to the perfect ministry of The Holy Spirit.  Our trust is based on WHO FATHER is, not just what HE says.  HE is not reluctant to reveal HIMSELF in the various levels of revelation found in every Word HE has spoken and recorded for our benefit.

There are those of us who have questioned our call and election because of our past failures.  Do not worry about being disqualified for Jesus’ Blood is more than sufficient to deal with ALL of our past.  The fact that you are reading this is an indication of your desire toward full maturity.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Peter 1:

10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Demons can’t read your mind.  However, they can speak to you and assess your reaction to what they have spoken or directed toward you.  If you do not respond in like manner, they will try another area of potential weakness.  If you are led by THE SPIRT, you become unresponsive to all their snares and they say simply depart looking for someone who is weak.  A plumb line of righteousness will not be moved by outside forces and will be unhindered in fulfilling the mandate of Christ in harvesting souls.

In Luke chapter 10, Jesus spoke:

1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. 2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road. 5 But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8 Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. 9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, 11 ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.’ 12 But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city.

Shouldn’t we quit focusing of Jesus’ return and focus on bringing in the harvest of souls?  Our days of preparation as mature Sons and Daughters are coming to completion.  We should ask for and expect the power and authority to heal the unsaved which will be a primary confirmation of The Word we speak.  They will be drawn to Jesus Christ by these signs as we proclaim kingdom of God has come near to you!  Agape Love has no desire to leave anyone behind.
