Short Reads to Stimulate Long Thoughts

In the Written Word with the Living Word

Wednesday – August 19, 2015

Isaiah 2 (NASB)

And the Lord alone will be exalted in that day,
18 But the idols will completely vanish.
19 Men will go into caves of the rocks
And into holes of the ground
Before the terror of the Lord
And the splendor of His majesty,
When He arises to make the earth tremble.
20 In that day men will cast away to the moles and the bats
Their idols of silver and their idols of gold,
Which they made for themselves to worship,
21 In order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs
Before the terror of the Lord and the splendor of His majesty,
When He arises to make the earth tremble.
22 Stop regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils;
For why should he be esteemed?

Terry, why do men build elaborate or common building and call it ‘church’? Stop giving greater honor to the works of your own hands than you do to Me. You even elevate My messenger than you do Me. My word has become Paul’s word and it no longer reveals Me but culture, and history, that is meant to lay down principles, formulas or regulations when applied properly will make you holy and acceptable.

Where are the people who are holy because of Me? Where are the people who are changed because of Me? Where are the people who are redeemed because of Me? Where are the people who are transformed because of the renewing of their minds by Me. Where are the people who have accepted My Word as My Word? Where are the people who are strong because of Me, rather than the fortitude of their own discipline?

Where are the people who esteem Me and Me alone.

Terry, do you look for the approval of your brothers and sisters in Christ more than My approval? Are you willing to live by faith in Me as I reveal Myself to you through the Written Word – do you trust Me or do you trust the scholar or the theologian? Are you listening for My Voice or their voices?

Terry, there is a difference in listening to ‘man’ and listening to Me – even when that man is only parroting what I have have already said.

Thank You Father, oh that I and my Christian brothers and sisters would wake up to our own individual responsibility in having a PERSONAL DAILY FELLOWSHIP WITH YOU; without a go between.
