Are you ready to go?

Posted by appolus on January 16, 2022

I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye sees You. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.(Job 42:5-6)

How many people have only ever heard of God? They grow up hearing about God. They go to their churches and hear about God. The hearing of Him has affected their lives in certain ways and directed their paths in a certain manner. They have heard words like “majesty,” and “glory.” They know about God’s power in their heads and with their understanding but in the depths of their hearts it is nothing more than information. Information does not change the heart, revelation does. It is the revelation of God that causes a man to see himself as he truly is in the light of the majesty and the glory of God. That is why the goodness and the severity of God are one and the same thing.

O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.(Daniel) I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple…… Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts (Isaiah) Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak:………Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth (Jeremiah) And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.(The Apostle John)

Behold the goodness and the severity of God when we see Him, when we encounter Him, when we have a revelation of Him. When He is no longer simply words and information. We fall down as any man would in the presence of glory. It is He who raises us back up, it is He who touches us in the depths of our hearts. It is He who changes us forever and sets our path before us. It is an agony to see God because we immediately see ourselves for who we truly are without Him. Without His touch, without His glory, without the Blood of the Lamb. And now the goodness of God as we come away from that place changed forever. Closer to the heart of God. The light of this world reduced to but a flickering candle in comparison to the impenetrable light of God which penetrates every part of who we are. Now, and only now are we ready to “go.”
