Drawing the Line

1Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; (Isaiah 49:1)

4How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! 16But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? (Rom 1:)

18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. (John 15:)

26If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? (Luke 14:)

I don't think there is one person who has heard what I am "Preaching."

In fact, almost nobody tells me that they have even bothered to read what I have written.

It's almost as if what I am preaching is cultist heresy. No, it's exactly like I was preaching heresy.

On occasion someone has read what I have written, and considered it next to "Brilliant." Of course that which they read agrees with what they already believe. I say to them,"Wait until you read the rest of the story, the parts that don't fit your doctrine - then tell me what you think of what I have to say."

And I have had occasion when someone likes what I have written, and maybe even agrees to a point - but doesn't believe it applies to them, or they don't feel they have time to take advantage of (or research any farther) what I have presented.

And I have had occasion when someone might respect my zeal, and appreciate my energy toward what I believe - but, again, they don't feel it applies to them, or, again, they believe I am off-base at best.

But most are confined to the "Comfort Zone" of their church doctrine and are unwilling to move beyond, or outside of it where there is nothing but wolves - and the Holy Spirit to guide them.

And for those who have not released the World, and taken hold of the hand of the Holy Spirit, they would be well advised to remain in the Comfort Zone of the Sheepfold Gate.

And who could blame them?

I appreciate those who have taken a step toward at least telling me what they think, and having at least read a small portion of what I have written. At least, like I say, that is a step.

What I have written thus far only scratches the surface of what I have had revealed to me, and that I will be writing about.

And if what I have written agitates or numbs anyone now, what I write in the future will appear so far off the beaten path that it can't be seen.

Support is a fine thing to have. Encouragement is a precious tool. But with or without it, I will continue to make available the "Truth" as it has been presented to me, with the subtle hope that maybe one person might receive it and be healed.

If I was preaching a doctrine that was contrary to the Bible, I could see why people would shine me on at best, or cast stones at me at worst. But that is far from the case. What I am preaching is clearly stated in the Bible, over and over, and (but) it is often clearly contradictory to the Fundamental Fables that is being taught in most of the churches.

If I were twisting the Bible into the shape of a pretzel, and trying to create a cult by suggesting that all leave God and His Golden Highway, than I could doubtless get followers by the thousands.

But since I am doing neither, that is, I am attempting to get Believers deeper into the Word of Truth; and to move those who are sitting on the stoop of Heaven to enter in; and those who have been brought to the Door of the Sheepfold to begin their journey; My words are ignored at best.

That's OK. My job is to present the Word, not to cram it down anyone's throat. It's not as if I have anything to gain by the acceptance or rejection of truth by anyone.

But yet, I do have something to gain.

There's the produce, that is the 30, 60, and 100 fold. I would like to think I could stand before God and present 100 fold. But God in His Wisdom and Mercy gave me a field to sow that is wrought with stones and weeds, and during a time of dreadful drought. (Jesus predicted this end-time apostasy that we now live in, so it should be no wonder that ears are dull of hearing.) Elijah had to hide away because no one would listen to him; the Apostles had to shake the dust off their feet at many of the cities they tried preaching at. I am far from an Elijah or an Apostle, so what can I expect?

I also have a very selfish possible gain. There are those who I care about that I would desperately like to see move on in the Lord. I would like them to receive all the benefits that God has to offer. But I have to release my hope, because as with any one else, the more I push, the farther they, or anyone else, will move away from me and what I am preaching.

It makes for a lonely journey. But I would much rather have a lonely journey in the right direction, that is the one to which I have been called; than to be crowded with comrades on a road that I see as the wrong one and which can only lead to great disappointment as best.

My hope and my prayer is that someday someone will come up to me and say: "I needed what you wrote. I felt like I was the only one who was called out and was wandering around the wilderness hoping to find one other person who was called out as well."

Then I will know that my efforts were not in vain.
