Much in scripture reveals the perfect timing of God.
Many of the prophets hear Go! as the command to obey to receive the revelation God wants to portray.
“Go to Nineveh”. “ Go to the potters house” Obedience is key or disaster befalls as in the case of Jonah.
Much appertaining to the future in the case of Jeremiah and Daniel and varying others.
Being in the right place at the right time relates to what is being appointed and anointed by God at the right time.
Being aware of the nudges as to where to go, what is important only happen when we are not distracted.
When we remain focused.
When we don’t give up.
When we obey whether or not we understand why.
We have to accept mystery and power and not allow the enemy to have a better understanding than we.
It appears that God’s perfect will at this time is to break off some of what has been sabotaged by the ‘religious’ practices and constructs which have in filtered His domain.
He is using this period stripping us back to prioritise and see clearly what has been ‘man driven ‘ and what has been ‘God driven’.
What has been ‘God driven’ He has awakened a new obedience to and a hunger for.
Religiosity is spurned by Jesus in His life time as by His Father.
Priorities confronted as He condemns attention to rules and practices adhered to by the Pharisees instead of true values and things of worth.
“You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!”
It is bad to allow the enemy to have a clearer sight of the mystery and power than we do.
Remembering Christ’s crucifixion is the epicentre of redemption.
He called us to His table daily to remember Him, His body being broken and His blood shed for the forgiveness of sins.
This repeated act is an abhorrent reminder to the enemy of that truth that was victorious over him.
The early church practicing this daily as they ate together in community and communion with one another tapped them into the perfect mystery and power of the divine.
Our hunger will override the pulling back by rules and doctrines that have confined the sacrament.
Our need for the bread and body in our stomach and the wine and blood in our nerve endings will not be ignored.
Our need to be obedient to Jesus above any denomination.
Our need to proclaim the redemption of Jesus will make us rule breakers for God.
God has brought Church into our homes and His desire for intimacy.
He is calling us to His table in a different way. The intimate relationship we saw at the last supper.
The religious constructs stripped away, broken free of and returning to the mystery and power in Jesus presence at every family table.
More will have encountered the Lord eating with them until such time as we may as our extended family gather around together.
The interim to being at the eternal banquet table to which He invites us also.
The illustration shows the redemptive Blood of Christ bringing Light into the darkness.
Four Scriptures that come to mind:
“And the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.”Luke 11:39 ESV
You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!”Matthew 23:24 ESV
“These tents we now live in are like a heavy burden, and we groan. But we don’t do this just because we want to leave these bodies that will die. It is because we want to change them for bodies that will never die.”2 Corinthians 5:4 CEV
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”1 John 4:18 ESV
