To walk in the Truth.

Posted by appolus on March 24, 2021

Heb 4:10 For he who has entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His.

In 2nd John 1:4 John says that he rejoiced greatly to have found some of the saints walking in the truth having received the commandment from God. To walk in the Truth is to rest in the peace of God. In 3rd John 1:4 John says that he had no greater joy than to hear that his children are walking in the truth. Imagine that, the Apostle John’s greatest joy is to see the saints walking in the Truth. And why? Walking in the Truth is how we overcome the flesh and walk in peace and in victory.

There is a people in every generation, a remnant people, who choose to believe God and in doing so find themselves in a place of rest, a place of peace, a place of joy that is quite apart from their circumstances. These people have walked through fields of fire. These people have suffered great loss. They have traversed the deep waters and they discovered that the Lord was with them as they passed through these waters. In their suffering they have discovered a peace that surpasses understanding.

God taught Job the truth in the midst of the most dire circumstances. He took the children of Israel into a place of death, the desert, the wilderness, to show them that what is truly important in this life is to walk hand in hand with their Lord Their great war cry was the war cry of Job “Even if He kills me, yet shall I trust Him.” Life, true abundant spiritual life, flows from a place of “believing.” Believing what? Believing that God has called us and that we are His servants. And that no matter if it be fire or flood, that God will be with us and that eternity awaits.

If our relationship with God is tied to our physical circumstances, we can never enter His rest. We can never truly walk in peace and joy. If we cannot find God in the desert, we will never truly find Him in this life. If, like the world, our joy is tied to our circumstances then all we really have is the joy of the world and not the joy of the Lord. If our peace is determined by our circumstances, like the world, then all we have is the peace of the world and not the peace that surpasses all understanding.

In every generation, God has His witnesses. And so, when the accuser of the brethern comes, and the Lord said ” Have you considered my servant Job,” likewise our Father in heaven can say in our day, to the accuser, ” have you considered my remnant?” If you could close your eyes and hear this conversation between the Lord and our accuser, could you hear the Lord say to the enemy of our souls “have you considered my servant ( fill in the blank with your name)?

    Bro. Frank,
    Do you ever feel like you’re just a “voice crying in the wilderness”?
    It’s very difficult, it seems, to attract even the most dedicated Christians in to the desert.
    Most of my brothers and sisters in Christ (who are blessed with this world’s goods) can’t seem to understand the absolute treasures of gold which can be found there.
    But I believe as the days close out, there will be many that find their way there … and then our testimony of the Lord’s grace and mercy will serve as “living waters” to strengthen and encourage them.
    God Bless You As You Continue,
    Tim 🙂

      The short answer is yes, brother. Although I do know that the Lord said that many are called but few chosen, I think because they themselves choose not to follow Jesus to the cross and beyond. One time the Lord gave me a word about “digging holes in the valleys.” The valleys were valleys of death and tribulation. It is the kind of place one would like to rush through, but the Lord was telling me to slow down and dig holes in these valleys. The reason for the holes was this. At times on this journey God Himself rends the heavens and comes down. Down comes the rain of blessing in these steep dark valleys, waters of life. The holes dug previously collect the water. When others come down this narrow path that leads through the valleys of life, they will come upon the holes previously dug and there will be water left in them and they will be able to drink the waters of life they find in that hole. In a sense, it will be comforting others with the comfort I myself have been comforted with. Does that makes sense? ……………. brother Frank

    ABSOLUTELY!
    In fact, I see it as a beautiful “word” that basically depicts my very own sentiments!
