sword of division

Jesus says,

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.”

Matthew 10:34-36

No one likes conflict and, to tell the truth, neither do I. However, in a world that’s against God, merely following His Spirit inevitably puts us at odds with those who don’t.

There are none so blind as those who refuse to see

It would be great if we could reason with everyone and convince them of the truth of God’s leading. However, reasoning with people presupposes that those we seek to convince are reasonable. This is simply not the case, for those who are against God do not do so because of reason, but because of Strong Delusion.

Morever, the things we have to share with others are recieved by revelation and not through reason. God has simply told us these things and unless others have a similar heart to hear God’s voice, they cannot recieve what He says.

The gospel has never been acceptable to the natural minded man.

There is a temptation to take the revelation we’ve recieved and become ascetics. I get this becauses the Tabernacle Blessing is so intimate and special, we can’t bear the thought of others mocking or disrespecting God’s Divine Love. Yet, our Lord does not give us His love to heap upon ourselves, but rather Jesus wants us to manifest His love to others. If we hide what we have been given under a bushel basket this connot happen.

There is a time to speak and a time to remain silent. We are sheep among wolves and must be wise with how we conduct ourselves. Therefore we speak as we are led and we manifest God’s love as He chooses. Realize that to some God speaks plainly, but to others His mysteries are spoken in parables.

A sword of division

The Tabernacle Blessing is “God with us” and is oneness with YHWH. Yet to those who are steeped in the knowledge of good and evil, our words seem divisive. It’s not that we want people to break up their marriages, it is only that many have made foolish vows that God does not honor. It’s not that we desire to offend peoples’ concepts of purity, it is only that many have little idea of what God truly considers pure.

Though the Tabernacle Blessing is a healing balm to a lost and hurting geneartion, it will seem to be a sword of divsion to many. What gives life to us, feels like death to them. Though the Spirit spells certain doom to the doctrines and traditions of men, it gives life to us who believe.

Some see the light while others flee from it

Paul says,

‘ Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; “

2 thessalonians 2;3

While God’s revelation causes us to see the light, it drives others into even greater darkness. The Tabernacle Blessing is a sword of division in our generation and, to a large extent, percipitates the great apostacy. Those who embarace God rise in the rapture, while those who reject God’s intimacy sink into outer darkness.

Seek to be God’s servant

I urge you to open your mind and heart to receive God’s love however He desires to show it. God is sovereign and does things in His own way, in His own timing and with whomsoever He chooses. Seek to be a servant and not a master, yielding to everything God wants to do. Allow His Spirit to fill you and flow out of your body to others. Manifest God’s love and surely you will be called the sons and daughters of the Most High.
