How can men be persuaded, that before God, none of the following specie of men qualify as “powerful men”: someone that can employ all the graduates in his country, someone that can raise all the dead men in a mortuary, someone that can exert the influence of an occupied office over an entire nation? Where did that alien thought emanate from? From above or from beneath? Jn. 3:31/8:23.
Solomon, whose glory was later compared to that of a perishable flower of the field could see through the skeleton of such thoughts and therefore branded it as vanity. His father, David, described such “realities” as being “lighter than vanity”. God’s definition of a “powerful man” is one who has lost his will (Jn. 5:19) by living from within and from above (1Jn. 2:20/27/Col. 3:1-2)
Ps. 62:9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
By flooding the earth with a barrage of irrelevant thoughts that excite many today, the enemy has brought upon men a subtle fight, and we are at the mercy of being able to accurately discern God’s Righteousness! To do this, we need to discern The Lord Our Righteousness (Jer. 23:6/1Cor. 1:30), which is a function of our ability to discern and Love His Body. That seemingly weak, sheepish, despisable state of the church (believers), is the Father’s bait and His Son’s sole provision to train us to love the “unlovable”, just like they have always done! Simply put, the reason why there are few powerful believers on earth today is because few have subscribed to this discipline, which is meant to enlarge our bowels of compassion unto the ignorant (Heb. 5:2)
Heb. 5:2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
Job. 36:5 Behold, God is mighty, and despises not any…
By eternal principles, Satan is the most wretched being on earth till date! He has made many highly esteemed men become poor in God’s sight. He only "gives" with a murderous intention of getting back much more - getting back the life of a soul (Jn 8:44c/10:10)! God is greatly rich, because He lives by giving, with no clauses or strings attached. How unlike God men are; how like God we are called to be!
There is a fearful provision and alternative for believers who don’t allow the Lord to heal their wrong judgement long before they appear in heaven, because the sickness of the soul is meant to be addressed while on earth (Ps. 103:3/Jam. 1:21). The father and the lamb, in partnership with overcoming believers that will constitute His cabinet in the world to come would have to “wait” until the new world wherein dwells righteousness is unveiled, so that the light of Righteousness can be administered unto their souls (Rev 21:23-24/Rev. 22:2f).
Light has appreciated beyond what we have individually and corporately consented to, or identified with. We need not strive with the new allocations of spiritual enlightenment that is upon us today - such that has the long awaited capacity to bring us into His Love.
