Forks in the Road   9 comments

This is from the blog Touching the King:

Late evening on 3rd November I sat quietly before the LORD and He showed me three visible roads that forked off a main road. The picture the LORD gave me was very clear He spoke to my heart in all seriousness. His mood somber for a critical juncture is approaching for many.

The LORD said that the party of blessings which has centered on things of this world has for the most part shipwrecked the church. He showed me this picture to share with those who have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches at this time. The emphasis is not hearing with your ears but with the Spirit. God is Spirit.

The LORD showed me this picture because He knows the spiritual climate that is ahead and it is a warning.

Here is the picture I saw …. I will describe it as best I can ……

I saw three roads. One was very obviously the wide road to destruction but the middle road which I felt equals middle ground are those who sit in churches but in fact sit on the fence of any real commitment to following Jesus Christ. This road is easy too and demands little of sacrifice. Most will now know this as churchianity but even this does not describe the deception as many still call themselves Christians this incorporates many different denominations.

Then I saw a very small rough track with small bushes as though in the countryside. It seemed authentic. It wasn’t hidden as such but it had the appearance of humility a road less traveled in the worldly sense. This road the LORD said is one of the most deceptive roads for Christians. No worldly goods, quite bare and again the appearance of humility. But the LORD emphasised that this too is not the track to following Him as the humility is false, very deceptive. Many well-known preachers of godly renown are on and have been on this path such is the deception. The truth of this path which for many believe is right is wrong. If God told you the truth you wouldn’t believe Him unless you walk very closely to Him, such is the deception.

Then the LORD showed me another track and this was not visible to the human eye in any way. This is a spiritual path that is opened up to us if we walk literally by faith and not by sight. It is very unseen by us but seen by God. This path is not shown beforehand to any Christian until the Good Shepherd guides you by His Voice and He says ‘Walk in it’. I have seen this path myself in a vision the LORD gave me many weeks ago. I have seen it in the spiritual but not as yet in the material. I know it is coming and I am myself having to wait for the LORD. I’ve already been rescued from many paths some in the churches. God will show you as you seek Him on this. I am testing every spirit daily from the LORD.

The LORD showed me that an absolute test of obedience is so essential at this time. Hearing His Voice alone out of the many Christians and Christian preachers is essential as all are not of the LORD. This unseen road is the narrow path and it is very steep and is following Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God. It is not of this world at all even though many true believers are still in the world.

The LORD spoke that it is essential to wait for His voice patiently. He knows you are tired and weary but keep very close to Him through prayer and His Word in stillness.

Luke 17: 20-21:  “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:  Neither shall they say,  Lo here! or, lo there!  for behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
.
Luke 17: 30:  “Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”  This Scripture does not say, when the Son of man is seen or observed (revelation knowledge is not the same thing as physical sight).
.
If someone reads the Bible, a newspaper article or a book with their physical eyes, this is not revelation.  When you come across a certain Scripture or a sentence in a newspaper article or a book and something is quickened in your spirit by the Holy Ghost—this is revelation from God.  The Lord is shining His light (revelation) upon that Scripture or that sentence—it may even be one word—so that we can better understand it.  Some people call this a Rhema Word or the Spoken Word.
.
“The kingdom of God cometh not with [physical] observation.”  The kingdom of God comes to purified vessels and is perceived by the spirit by the Holy Ghost.  It is a spiritual kingdom; it is not a physical kingdom that you can see with your physical eyes.
.
The Second Coming is not a physical Jesus coming through some physical clouds for His bride to be seen through the physical eyes.  The Second Coming is the Holy Ghost revealing the Lordship of Jesus Christ to purified vessels (dead to self) who can see with their spiritual eyes.  These people are not into the letter, but the Spirit, because the letter kills and the Spirit gives life.
.
Let’s say that the natural, unsaved man can see for twenty miles.  Your basic believer in Christ should be able to see for fifty miles (I am speaking figuratively).  The Christian believer is spiritually alive and should have spiritual insights that the unbeliever cannot have because the unbeliever is dead in his trespasses and sins.   Your basic prophetic Christian should be able to see one hundred miles or five hundred miles ahead of him–or you could say that the prophet can see five years or ten years or five hundred years into the future (this is why prophets are hated so much and are thought to be crazy—they see things way before other people see things and their lives and words convict people of sin).
.
Revelation from God is spiritual, but the Lord uses our physical bodies/senses/eyesight for His will.  The physical body is the temple of the Holy Ghost.  Our physical body/temple is used by the Lord, so that He can reveal His will to us, so that we can obey His will–this is how we develop and strengthen our spiritual sight.
.
In 2007, I bought my first pair of reading glasses.  As I get older, my physical sight (for reading) is growing weaker, but my spiritual sight is growing stronger.  I must decrease, so that He can increase.

“The man whom Christ illuminates with His message has eyes, and that resolves the old difficulty of blindness; but he must use his new eyes in a blind world, and that creates another problem. The world in its blindness resents his claim to sight and will go to any lengths to discredit the claim. The truth of Christ brings assurance and so removes the former problem of fear and uncertainty, but that assurance will be interpreted as bigotry by the fear-ridden multitudes. And sooner or later this misunderstanding will get the man of God into trouble. And so with many other of the blessed benefits of the gospel. As long as we remain in this twisted world, these benefits will create their own problems. We cannot escape them.
But no instructed Christian will complain. He will rather accept his problems as opportunities for the exercise of spiritual virtues. He will turn them into useful disciplines for the purification of his life and will rejoice that he is permitted to suffer with his Lord. For however severe may be a Christian’s trials, they cannot last very long, and the blessed fruit they bear will last while the ages endure.”
