The Invisible

When the world so eagerly tries to remove the visible heritage of Christianity, it’s time to show the invisible source again!

It was the “invisible” that created the visible THEREFORE that which is “not seen” is more real than that which is “seen” [temporal; discerned through the five physical senses] – in view of spiritual reality. (Glenn H. Jackson)

Surrounded by the attempt of mankind to make everything as visible as they can, my last visit to the Netherlands again confirmed the overflow of demanding messages! As visible as the abundance of commercial activities are, the invisible message of abuse and manipulation has been so obvious that for a while I was wondering why I was so tired. Discounts, ‘now to buy’, cheap cheap cheap, must have, why not, etc.

In the same time we can notice that the attempt to make the heritage of Christianity as invisible as they can is also very very obvious! Very little beautiful designed churches are still a ‘house of God’ while most of them, at least in the places I visited are recognised by the ‘rich’ and turned into art galleries, restaurant and other more profitable projects.

Is it a bad thing?
In a way, of course it is, but in the same time it is the biggest challenge the body of Christ has ever faced. The violence against Christ-centered life is arising and with it the ignorance of the world is revealed as they think that the visible is ‘the thing’, while it is only the outward expression, over the centuries of the inner existence. The challenge for those who live the Christ-centered life is to oppose the religion mindset of feeding the soul, by providing the ‘food’ for the hungry spirit of mankind. When the ‘fake’ is removed, the hunger for the real is ever around us.

Discernment is needed
In a time of outward appearance, where the design is crying out loud, there is a strong need of discernment in what is real and what is not. The great thing of absence is that it creates hunger for content and through this hunger we are challenged to provide or confronted with the lack and emptiness of our ‘faith’!
Discernment is needed and that means that we have to be careful with going with the ways of the world. The media-driven churches that are just a replacement but mostly move with the same spirit. When God was warning the people of Israel not to go for the ‘wagons and horses’ like the Egyptians, it is a lesson of trust in the invisible ‘insignificant’ sources. In everything Jesus was teaching, He underlined the importance of the small beginnings, the seemly irrelevant actions and with it the trust in the abundance of His Storehouses.

What’s for 2015?
Reading the news, we see a poor and devaluated mankind, willingly driven by the flesh and the lust. All over the world our brothers and sisters are slaughtered, their churches are burned and their legacy is wiped out. And than the arrogance I sense in the christian discussions here in the West where the lack of real discernment and real satisfying ‘food’ is so obvious and alarming. I hope the year 2015 will not be another year of ‘hopeful prophecies’ and visible emptiness.
Don’t be fooled as the wiping out of the visible christian legacy will continue. The violence of the wicked here in the West as well as in the East will work with the same Anti-Christ spirit to rage agains the Christ-Centered followers.
Move away from those who’s lives are not expressed by a willingness to die from every self centred attitude! Check if your covenants are Egypt or God, check your connections and make sure that you don’t live from the wrong ‘tables’!

Is this the end? No definitely not, but it is time to come ‘out of the closet’, to show the source of your life, to stop living a ‘both ways’ life, an optional christianity! It is time to be honest about the fact that we ‘lost the battle’ as it goes for the religious part of christianity and the times of reality are ahead of us. Check your Oil as the Bridegroom is approaching, check your walls, your armoury, check your faith! Stop trying to save the ‘sinking ships’!

When the world so eagerly tries to remove the visible heritage of Christianity, it’s time to show the invisible source again!
