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