MORNINGTIME 3909by Benjamin Munsell on December 23, 2021
For we Know in part, and we Prophesy in part. But when that (Christ) which is Perfect is come, then that (our imperfect understanding) which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see (Christ) through a glass, darkly; but then Face to face: now I know (Christ) in part; but then shall I know (Him intimately) even as also I am known (of Him). 1 Corinthians 13:9-12. And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the Mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father's Name written in their foreheads. And they sung as it were a new song before the Throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, WHICH WERE REDEEMED FROM THE EARTH. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which Follow the Lamb WHITHERSOEVER HE GOETH. These were Redeemed FROM AMONG MEN, being the Firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: FOR THEY ARE WITHOUT FAULT before the throne of God. Revelation 14:1,3-5. Let's add to this list all the great Prophets of old. Here's the question. Did the Lord CHOOSE these men to do great things, or did these men make themselves available to be used by the Lord WITH NO RESTRICTIONS? The first way, God chooses WHO HE WANTS and the rest of us are "stuck" in a comparatively small position, OR, people fall so in Love with Christ that they will gladly follow Him to the ends of the earth with no fear and no hesitation, AND THE LORD WILL GLADLY USE THEM IN ANY WAY HE WANTS TO? IF, it's the second Way, then you don't have to wait for "an invite" to be used by the Lord. Go for it!!! Chase down the Lord Himself and ask Him to Purify you and use you every Way He wants to. Death, Fear and Hesitance have no place in your vocabulary as you choose to, Be Blessed.
