Day 8 Intimacy with Jesus: Despising Not the Small
“Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the LORD that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone in the hand of Zerubbabel?”
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
1 Kings 19:11-13
And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:
And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
The Lord Jesus
And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
32 But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
The Eternally Powerful Everlasting speck-seed of God in Jesus Christ is in me. It consumes my mountains and my valleys. These are great- but the speck-seed of the Living Word is much greater. That is intimacy with Jesus- that is the type of God we serve. Despise not small things. It has carried and contained me for over 3 decades.
Freedom: don’t just stand in some small cell with almost every door in the prison wide-open. Shout-out Freedom by living it- walk-out- God made us for Freedom to Freedom-glory to glory. What then are you doing oh one with the Almighty-Potent Divine speck-seed of Heaven just standing in a prison cell. While the prodigal (son gone wild having squandered his inheritance monies on prostitutes and parties) was afar off the Father ran towards him- though he was in the prison of ill-regard for himself- the Father ran. If you are free – be free then indeed. That’s intimacy with Jesus- walk therefore on the waters with him and stand in the flames heated 7 X with the Son of God in this world in need of Intimacy with Jesus.
The sins that come from the pleasures of this life are stubborn; but, Jesus Christ living in me and I living in Him is exceedingly superabundantly more stubborn! Walk in and out of the stubbornness of Jesus Christ’s purposes of purity.
It is the day of “the small” and for such a day as this have I been born into unto my generation here in Canada, on this Continent, and unto the world. Jesus is the Light of the World and we too brothers and sisters in Christ are too- lights as though a star in a darkened universe asking Metaphysical questions: “where did I come from and why am I.” It was the speck of God’s Faith in Himself and an Act of God that brought all these into existence from “nothing” except from Hence- Himself. He is Alive- Jesus is Alive! The foolishness of preaching is God’s means and measure of bringing you into His fold- even so come and even so come Lord Jesus!!!
If a bomb and bombs can lay waste tracts and tracts of land and peoples- how much more infinitely can the Material of Heaven lay waste to our enemies? How much more can The Church world-wide by prayer lay to waste the likes of those demonic forces behind Al Qaeda or ISIS should she set herself to pray? Were I a King, Prince, President, or Prime-Minister I would call for a national year of prayer to watch the speck-seed of Heaven lay to waste those mountains and valleys of death we call Al Qaeda and ISIS as a sign and wonder- Our God is great- the Mighty Jehovah- 3 persons in One- the One-ness God. If materials only in the handfuls can poison many waters- how much more can God poison those wicked areas of our hearts and lives so that we go no more to drink from the well continually of disobedience and rebellion???!!!
