A Dire Emergency

In this situation everyone is tested and I can’t say how I might respond, but the Word and Spirit give insight into a distinction between the natural and Spiritual. The actions of the Spirit are not subject to reason or natural responses. We’ve witnessed this from hero’s who consistently affirm no credit for their deeds. There have been a number of movies on the topic, but they generally fail to recognize anything of the Spirit. Yeshua, (Jesus’ Hebrew name), said what approves or convicts us comes from within our heart. (Matt. 15:11) The Spirit has a nature of character, just as the natural has a fallen corrupt nature without character. 

A person of character was what Dr. ML King, spoke of when he saw a day when we would judge the “content of one’s character”, rather than other natural features. Love is the highest, but fearlessness, selflessness, godliness, righteousness, truthfulness, faithfulness, submission and obedience are a few characteristics that the Holy Spirit builds within the Believer. These features are the work of God, through trials, discipline, suffering, pressure, warfare, and victorious overcoming faith. We don’t see this because it is of God, Spiritual and eternal, moreover, we are too well acquainted with our failings, through the enemy’s accusations and temptation to always perceive God’s work within.

What I see in an emergency are fearless loving members of God’s family, thrusts into action and service, by a Spirit call to attention, shown what is yet to come, and made ready for such a time as this. (Esther 4:14) I see people following the Spirit in spite of danger, surrounding chaos, and those who are deaf to natural urges of self preservation. They love, caring not for their own lives because they know God has them in the palm of His hand; the trust they have in God releases them to function in the supernatural. They become agents of God, dividing between soul and Spirit for salvation, deliverance, redemption and protection. The natural mind cannot comprehend this, but reality evidences a touch of the eternal love of God.

What the enemy meant for evil, God turned for good. (Gen. 50:20; Rom. 12:21) His servants are welcomed into the Kingdom with crowns of victory and those once considered lost, beyond God’s reach, are miraculously saved and born again into the Kingdom of light. The enemy is thwarted, defeated, and love blooms from the ashes. Glory and praises ring throughout heaven and the saints on earth join the heavenly host in worship of King Yeshua. The praises ring out through the Kingdom, to Mount Zion, the City of the Living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, among thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven, to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect. (Hebrews 12:22-23)
