We are the shadow of the Rock

Posted by appolus on July 15, 2016

Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment. And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a cover from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken. The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. (Isa 32:1-4)

When Christ rules in the heart of a man or in the Body of believers then righteousness flows like a mighty river. When Jesus has His place among us then and only then are we salt and light to the world. In a dark world which grows darker by the day, the Lord has called forth such a people. Not a people who are corrupted by the things of this world, not a people who are compromised by the cultures in which they live, but a people who dwell in the Kingdom of God here and now and who worship that Kingdom’s King, Jesus.

Then we shall be a hiding place from the wind and a refuge from the calamitous storm that is slowly but surely engulfing the whole world. God has His people and He is calling on them in this day, the day before He returns, to come out of the world and be found in Him. When we are found in Him, when we have separated ourselves from the compromised then we become as a river in a dry and thirsty land. We become the shadow of the Rock, which is Christ, for those who are caught in the unrelenting demands of a Babylon.

When the Lord rules and reigns in our hearts we will have eyes to see what is truly unfolding around us. We will see with Spirit’s eye the schemes of the enemy and the snares and the traps of religion. We will hear what the Spirit is saying to the Body of Christ, we will hear and we will know. And when we hear and when we see we will have tongues to speak plainly of what we have seen and what we have heard. Without the Lord ruling and reigning in our hearts we are as blind men stumbling around. We are no better than those who hunger and thirst in a dry and weary land. It is our calling to be like the moon. The moon is a dead object that primarily lights up a dark work by reflecting the light from the sun. The moon, by its position affects the cycle of life and the tides rise and fall because of it.

Are we having this kind of effect on the world? Do we, by being dead to ourselves, reflect the light of His glory into the darkness of our surroundings? Is there a spiritual gravitational force around us that pulls others towards Jesus? This is our calling brothers and sisters. This is the purpose of the Body of Christ and all the more so as we see those days approaching. Let Him rule and reign in your life today and lean not upon your own understanding and He will open your eyes and your ears and He will direct your mouth to speak to a dying world that stand on the precipice of judgement. Let all this be done for His glory.

    This is a timely word of exhortation and encouragement to the church from a brother who blogs at acalltotheremnant.com. I felt to reblog his post today and pray that we as the ‘moon’ reflecting the Son, will have our hearts given over completely to the reign and rule of Christ, our glorious and Eternal King. Look off unto Christ in all things, brothers and sisters.
