Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
I went to late Meeting for Worship today. As before, the Lord sent me. It was time, He let me know.
Yesterday, I wrote a blog, which I read to the Meeting. You can read it if you go to www.thereligioussocietycafe.com. Title: God's Teaching. It originated from my readings in Leviticus (thus far). As I stated to the Meeting, I am always in the Spirit. I had written a blog a year or so ago about living a Spirit ordered life, and the Lord has given me that privilege since I got down on my knees. So what I read to them was out of the Spirit, as are almost all of my blog posts.
The end of the blog said that unlike the Israelites we have had the benefit of moral instruction. Unlike them we also know of Jesus, the promised Messiah, his purpose in coming and dying and being resurrected from the grave. It was about His blood cleansing all people, to make us holy when we accept God's invitation to salvation. And when we are consecrated as the Israelites were consecrated, we are set apart. We are instructed through our Inward Teacher, Yeshua, Messiah, how to be. Through Him we are taught the ways of God.
That is what the Lord wanted me to tell them: the gospel, the good news. They did not like it. Oh, the counter speakings flowed almost immediately, filled with antisemitism, paganism, pantheism, Darwinism, New Ageism. It was a long, tiresome Meeting. Someone asked to be held in the light. I asked her what she meant by the light. She look puzzled momentarily and then said, "Oh, in your thoughts." I can't hold you in my thoughts, I replied but I can pray for you. I later thought I needed to add, I can't hole you in my thoughts because I have no power, but Christ does. I'll pray for you. Tell me your name. She wouldn't tell me her name. I heard it anyway and I'll pray for her. But you can imagine how discouraged I felt through the rest of Meeting and on my way home. Then, just as I returned home, joy filled my heart. I had understood as I was walking from Meeting that it wasn't the people but Satan I was dealing with and that Christ Jesus has defeated Satan. But what brought joy to me was Jesus saying to me that Satan's minions were working to scare me away. For the first time since returning to the Meeting I can't wait to go again. Praise God. Blessed is my Lord.
