Idolatry

MANY IN THIS HOUR HAVE FORSAKEN INTIMATE FELLOWSHIP WITH THE FATHER AND HIS WORD – CHOOSING INSTEAD TO ALLOW THOSE IN “DELEGATED AUTHORITY” TO GO UP “FOR THEM”

Words of Prophecy:

* “Idols” are anyone or anything that one exalts above [places before] Me.

* The only thing that will counteract “idolatry” [the placing of people or things above their relationship with Me] in the lives of My children in this final hour is a heart “wholly” given [Luke 10:27] to My Will. For it is only a heart wholly given that will cause [empower] one to be positioned properly [both spiritually and locationally] so as to not be ignorant of Satan’s schemes – “rising above” them, and victoriously overcoming him at every turn.

* Truly I say to you, this is the hour when ALL idolatry must be forsaken by My children for I will not tolerate the affections of My children being given to another [person or thing] ahead of Me.

* As horrendous as the “network” of carnality [soulish relationships] amongst My children has been as I look out across the earth, in the case of each child of Mine not walking in the fullness of My Will for their lives, there needs to be only a “minor adjustment” – a letting go of “all those things” that fill their time with empty [futile] thoughts and actions. For if they would only hearken unto the voice of My Spirit, and cast down the “idols” in their lives they would surely and suddenly have “large blocks of time” in which to “immerse” themselves in My Word and in prayer [communication with Me]. This immersion in My Word and fellowship with Me is the ONLY way that any of My children can walk in the “fullness” of all that I have called them to in this final hour. It is also the only way that they are able to enter into their “proper” place [Kingdom-position] in My “true” [Glorious] Church. For to walk in the fullness of My power means that they must come to that place of an “absolute emptiness”. That place where the “flesh” has been rendered ineffective by the power of My Word [and the Spirit of the Cross], and the power of the Blood – in order that the “torrents” of My life that I desire to pour forth through My holy vessels not be “impeded” in any way [John 7:38].

“The LORD spoke to you face to face at the mountain from the midst of the fire, while I was standing between the LORD and you at that time, to declare to you the word of the LORD; for you were afraid because of the fire and did not go up the mountain. He said, ‘I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. ‘You shall have no other gods before Me. ‘You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. ‘You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments”…. Deuteronomy 5:4-10 NASB

“All the people perceived the thunder and the lightning flashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance. Then they said to Moses, ‘Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, or we will die.’ Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid; for God has come in order to test you, and in order that the fear of Him may remain with you, so that you may not sin.’ So the people stood at a distance, while Moses approached the thick cloud where God was”…. Exodus 20:18-21 NASB

“So he [Moses] was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did not eat bread or drink water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments. It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses’ hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him. So when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him”…. Exodus 34:28-30 NASB

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he newho does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter”…. Matthew 7:21 NASB

“reluctance” – unwillingness; disinclination;

In the days of Moses, the people “maintained” a heart of idolatry and, thus, when it came time to approach God on the mountain they were consumed by fear [terror, panic] instead of experiencing great peace and joy at the opportunity to come to know the One that had delivered them from their bondage [Egypt]. And so it is in these days that if one “maintains” ANY ground [of self-desire] in their heart for a spirit of idolatry to work they, too, will experience a deep reluctance to enter into the Presence of God in the “inner chamber”. One of the great problems in the church at large is that in the same way as those in idolatry in the wilderness “expected” [insisted] that Moses “go up” in their stead, many in this hour have forsaken intimate fellowship with the Father and His Word – choosing instead to allow those in “delegated authority” to go up “for them” [the spontaneous fruit of this being that they become a people who follow after “flesh and blood” {regardless of how anointed they are} rather than the Holy Spirit]. Because of these things, those who have allowed themselves to be bound by a “spirit of idolatry” are an ill-prepared people – an undiscerning people who continually forsake revelation knowledge and the Wisdom [Counsel] of God to depend upon their “own” strength and understanding [Matthew 13:11-17].

It must be clearly understood that the Father has called each and every one of His precious children to a close and intimate fellowship with Him – and that it is ONLY from this close and intimate fellowship with Him [on an individual level] in the “inner chamber” [on a daily basis] that a “spotless and unblemished” Church could EVER become a “corporate” reality in the earth. It is also from this position of intimate fellowship with the Father and His Word that one comes to “know” [gain a revelation of] His Will, and receive the power [Grace, Love etc.] to carry it out in a perfect obedience – a perfect obedience [faith and love] that is the prerequisite for one entering into and abiding in the “Kingdom” [the sphere in which Jesus truly reigns as Lord in one’s life – a position from which ALL true Kingdom-position and service begins and is maintained, without exception!].

As I received this wonderful mail this morning from Glenn H. Jackson, I was reminded on a blog I once write about Moses and going up the mountain (read here).
