At first read, the title of this blog may appear to be dangerous to many. However, when you begin to understand the delicate ways of God and how He uses His intricate methods of communication with us, this thought can become warm and friendly. Let me try to explain.
God’s communication is always done without condemnation. This is a strong statement in the Word of God about God’s character: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” God‘s character is revealed in close communication with Him. You find out He is very kind and gentle in His way of speaking. His gentle use of pictures in characterizations, dreams, and statements to us never directly put us in conflict with His will. Instead, they give us a choice to either reject or accept His will.
Have you ever met a person of power that would be this delicate in his communication ~ especially with someone as low and as weak as we can be? In my daily prayer as I listen to His voice, I realize He is truly a loving Father that loves us so much that He wants us to have the freedom of choice in every decision.
But at the same time He realizes that we do not have the intellectual sophistication to make the appropriate choices. So He gives us dreams that reveal the potential pain (a picture of how important the situation’s decision is), and leaves it to us to follow the route that He is suggesting. Through dreams, words, visions, and more, He reveals His will to us.
We are obviously in a very critical transitional time, when most of us are currently moving up from our past level to the new higher level that God is bringing us to. In this transition, there is a flood of downloads God gives to assist us in making the right and appropriate decisions to follow His perfect will.
God’s words are very very important, but they are also so sharp that they are capable of cutting off bad decisions without making us even feel the pain! You are spiritually living today on an operating table with the most skilled Surgeon above you ~ cleansing, cleaning, and fixing every aspect of your human existence. Wow! What an incredibly beautiful time to be alive!
