To know God is to love God.
There are hindrances that withhold people from entering into the presence of Abba. One of these hindrances is a hart that doesn’t fully trust Him. Hebrews 4 vs. 16 says: Let us then approach the throne of grace with a heart fully trusting God, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
You can only trust someone completely if you love him with your entire being. That is why God told Moses: Tell them to love the Lord your God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. That is the first commandment!
In His presence we receive first hand revelations – I like to call that a kiss from God. And that kiss can never be wiped away. Even if you have many theological degrees, and you try to convince me with human words - that kiss will never fade! It remains, it is eternal, and it is life changing! That kiss is there for all of Abba’s children, but we have to come closer, so much closer, to receive that kiss. I can hear my heart calling: “Father, I need to know Your ways!”
Come My child, come much closer and surrender everything. That way you will come to understand My ways. Come to Me and worship Me, just because you love Me. And then you will be able to see through Me eyes and know that I am who I said I am. You can trust Me with everything in your life.
When we worship God face to face we will come to a deeper understanding that He is God and we are only human. When we look at Him as Father, we see our salvation and we experience the joy of being His sons and daughters; but in the same breath, as we worship Him as God, we can only but fall down humbly at His feet. God is a consuming fire (Heb 12:29). Everything that is still flesh in His presence will burn!
When I look at Aldo, I can see how humble the narrow road is. He just lives in God’s presence everyday – and I can also see how God is keeping him separated from the world in order to teach him.
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence (1 Cor. 1: 27-29).
Why does God choose the weak? Because their souls are not puffed up. If we live according to the spirit, God gets what He wants – and that is worship. But if we life according to the soul, Satan gets what he wants - our lives.
If we are ruled by self, our outward situations, by the opinion and fear of man, or by anything of the world – we are unfit for the warfare of the spiritual realm. We have to go through this warfare because Christianity is not the removal of our weaknesses or only the manifestation of the power of God - it is the manifestation of His divine power in the weakness of a human being.
In our warfare God is bestowing His power and strength upon man, but that strength is manifest in your weakness. 2 Cor 12:9 promises us: “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
Part of the spiritual warfare is to walk in faith – and with this I mean the God kind of faith, triumphing in the presence of doubt. Why is it that we think where sadness exist, no one can have joy? Where there are tears, why can there not be praises to God? Where we see weakness, why do we doubt in God’s power to strengthen and overcome?
This is where God Himself comes in and manifests His strength in our weakness – because He is our divine treasure. Just stand back so that He can take that place. This (trusting Him completely as you hand over your weakness) is truly to see God’s treasure manifested in a humble vessel of clay.
God wants to give us spiritual vision – but the secret to receive this vision is to be willing and ready to pay the price of attaining it. He will guide the meek in judgment and will teach them His ways. The humble He guides in justice, and the humble He teaches His way. Psalm 25 says: (9-10) All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies….(14) The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.
On this journey through life, we can live so wonderfully close to God, and only there, when we love Him intimately, will we see what we couldn’t see before, or hear what we couldn’t hear before, and feel what we could never feel before.
Yes, My child, only the humble and meek will taste and see that God is good.
Therefore I want to encourage you to bend your knee before the living God. Don’t complain; rather worship Him for opening up your spirit to Him and making you realize how much you need Him!
The things Aldo is writing about the end times are so intense that I am still waiting on God to hear if He wants me to reveal it all or not. I am still just a Mom, who will do anything to protect my child from hurtful comments and judgments.
But I also know to move in obedience when God gives the word. The secret is to love what God loves and to hate what God hates; to move when God says move and to wait when God says wait.
We enjoy a deep intimacy in our walk with God, and we are learning so much about the spirit realm and growing from Glory to Glory.
Remember, after you have done all – just STAND.
May God bless your spirit.
