We heard the call to arms — the call to gather again — and we did so last week — after many Pandemic months and enforced self-isolation. So, having heard we obeyed, and a beautiful re-gathering it was too. Much sharing of experiences, prayers and songs of worship — even if some our voices were a little rusty or prone to croak. Well, mine anyway.
Gill was given a strong leading that He was giving us a ‘call to arms’ — all who were able to bear arms and older were gathered; and they stood at the border. [2 Kings 3:21b NKJV]
We talked of many things — no shoes, ships or sealing wax; no cabbages, but maybe a few kings. We flew from Isaiah 40 to Hebrews 4; from John 4 to Genesis 15, visiting ‘fields already white for harvest’; the Ark three months ‘in the house of Obed-Edom’, and the nature of His grace — but underpinning was our Lord saying that we were ‘standing on Holy ground’.
Gill’s vision of a clear, glistening, sparkling pool with a cascading fountain seemed to speak of the clarity of The Word and an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” [Revelation 22:7 NKJV]
The greatest demand God makes of us is to believe that He is righteous when everything that happens goes against that faith.
