God will pass over a million today. He will pass over the religious. He will pass over those who are busy with crusades and evangelism. He will pass over those caring for the widows and the orphans. He will even pass over ministers of the gospel. What He is looking for is different. He is looking for the person who has a true inward walk with Jesus Christ. One who is established in the foundation which I have revealed on this website.
He will look at a professional in the secular world who is truly established inwardly in God and pass over a pastor who has lost or never truly known the inward way of knowing Jesus. Most pastors talk of having an inward walk with Jesus, yet their doctrine and words deny and contradict.
Many today appeal for finances for the widow and orphan. Some appeal for the work of evangelism. A lot of this comes under the cloak of religion. This is especially true in developing countries. God is looking for the inward foundation. That which is outward appears to be good is often discarded by God. He is looking for something else.
Many today are too focused on social media. God wants you to spend time with Him! Connections and relationships with others should fade in the light of His glory and grace.
Today, we say leadership is influence. However, Jesus once told a large crowd that inwardness was what He desired. Miracles and providing for their needs was what the crowd wanted. Many walked away. Jesus was not concerned about influence and numbers.
I have to go back a few hundred years to find saints who truly knew the inward walk with God. That, in itself, speaks volumes about the spiritual state of this generation.
Let us ensure that we are not wandering along and being carried by the winds of this generation. Let us seek God and learn His ways.
Why the entire church has missed it and needs reformation
Jesus spoke of this often emphasising the importance of a true inner walk with God rather than merely cleansing the outside of the cup and dish.
This means that you cant simply take the New Testament (at face value) and then do it as is taught almost everywhere today. Rather you need to have an inward foundation whch is Jesus and then you will fulfill the Word truly. This is more than the new birth and the baptism in the Holy Spirit. One needs to be established in Jesus and to know Him deeply. This is the mystery of the gospel.
You need to emphasise and teach the gospel differently. I turn on Christian television and hear this outward form of the gospel coming forth all the time. No one - not one - brings forth the inward foundation properly. One can only bring forth the gospel differently if you are first reformed yourself.
Unforturnately, most saints are blind and simply receive everything they hear, whether it is true or not. Simply throw in a few Scriptures and Greek words and that makes it acceptable! Not everything taught from the Scriptures is actually from the Scriptures. Ignorance and deception keeps the people of God from the truth.
Some truths of the inner walk that we need to learn...
You will hunger after God, and find Him, in the same proportion that you hunger after the cross.
It is impossible for you to truly love the Lord without loving the cross. (Guyon)
There is "no excitement" in the the inner walk. Nothing will move you, whether good things or trouble. A stability will become evident when one walks before God truly.
