Rekindling the Fires
in the Camp of Israel
The climb into the ever brigher Light of Christ requires continuous effort in order to counteract the gravitational pull of sin. God's presence is always represented by fire, symbolising action and struggle. Just causes always prevail in the end. Beware of the short-term prosperity the world offers because this has no permanency. Worldly activity is spirtual sleepiness. The parable of the house and the room. Missioners should be sent out two-by-two proclaiming the Good News. Without active discipleship, our spiritual gains are soon lost by the ever pulling demands of the flesh -- "one step forward, one step back". The counter-pull of the flesh does not stop until the spirit has totally overcome, and man's return to former vices is testimony that this has not yet happened. The presence of pride is one of the sure signs that the flesh is alive and well, pulling the spiritual nature downwards. The message of this revelation is quite simply: don't relax your vigilence, strive hard like an athlete until you have won your crown! (1 Cor.9:24) [Oppsal, Oslo, Norway].
1. Behold, what ye desire ye must fight for, saith the Lord, having a mind and heart single to your task.
A Just Cause Prevails
2. And if your desire is righteous, and ye waiver not in your determination, then ye shall overcome and obtain the object of your desires.
3. But if your cause is unjust, then ye will only reap disappointment and bitter- ness, whether ye obtain your desire or not, and ye will remain unjustified.
4. See that ye seek the Kingdom in this manner, and ye will surely overcome and find rest (1 Jn.5:4);
The World Disappoints
5. But if ye seek the world ye will be disappointed, and your hopes will be dashed.
6. Behold, though there is a season in which it seemeth that a man prospereth, yet he must reap the fullness of what he hath sown.
7. Therefore be ye not deceived by the prosperity1 of the world for her glory shall pass away in a flash;
8. And where there were riches, there shall be ashes. And where there was merriment, there shall be sorrows.
9. Let all the saints re-examine their ways, saith the Lord, that they may see whether they are of the world or of the Kingdom.
The Sleepiness of the World
10. For ye are, as it were, in a great sleep, having breathed in the air of the world and drunk the draft of her mystery.
11. Awake, O Zion, and cast off thy slumbers, for thy God calleth thee!
Parable of the House
12. Ye have become as the builder who brought some stones to build a house and built a room.
13. And behold, when he had run out of stones he built no more, but gathered his friends together and held a feast.
14. But I have not called you to build a room, but a house;
15. And therefore ye must go out and hew stones2, fitly shaping them that My House may arise completed and ready to receive her Lord.
16. If ye will not build My House then I shall call others;
17. Therefore go ye forth, two by two, gathering in the stones of My House, for the hour of feasting is not yet.
18. Go into all the north countries, even as I have commanded you, building up the local Colonies, withholding not the voice of testimony, but bearing affirmative witness of your God and Saviour.
Let Your Light Shine
19. Rekindle the fires in the camps of Israel; let your lights shine before men everywhere, else ye are become profitless.
20. For did the Son of Man hide Himself away, or did He stand before the world and bear witness of the Light of Heaven?
21. Behold, ye ought to be doing even as I did, and more, for I have called you to be ministers of flame3, even the vessels of the Holy Spirit.
22. But ye do not, for ye have not arisen into the fullness.
The Lord Shakes Those Whom he Loves
23. I have not ceased shaking, saith the Lord, and shall shake all the saints until they have awakened and see with clear eyes.
24. And if they will not awaken, I shall pass them by, until the tribulation4 awakeneth them from their slumber and they find that Zion hath fled, and cannot be found.
25. Ye think Me hard, saith the Lord, but ye see not as I see, neither do ye behold your own awful state.
26. Behold, until ye have learned to be truly independent in the Light ye must of necessity receive the rebukings and chastisements of He who knoweth you every whit, else ye would fall backwards into the darkness ye abode in before.
27. For until a man hath attained the threshhold of the Firstborn Light he cannot stand fully independent, and must of necessity fall back again according to the attractive power of the lower worlds into which he was born.
28. My Cross standeth above the fallen worlds of matter, for I overcame matter, subjecting it unto Myself.
29. This is the atonement, or a part thereof, for through faith in My Name and in conformity to My commandments a man may also arise, through grace.
Forwards and Backwards
30. But the faith of man is weak, saith the Lord, and when he climbeth a step upwards into Light, unless he is of single mind and heart, being fixed in his faith inMe, he falleth back again, returning unto his old ways.
31. For this cause I, the Lord, must rebuke and push like a taskmaster;
32. And more often than not a man will not respond until he hath to, when his life is threatened or he hath learned by painful experience that there is no other course for him.
33. Therefore I chastise you now, and push you, that ye might not all fall back ino the jaws of spiritual death on account of the weakness of your faith.
Upwards, the Lord's Way
34. There is only one way, and that way is upwards into Light; the other way is no way, for its end is the bottomless pit.
35. Beloved, suffer no man to rob or defraud you of your crown of righteousness (2 Tim.4:8);
36. Guard your treasures wisely, else the thief will come and lay you bare.
37. Resist the haughtiness of pride and the enticings of the fallen worlds, for there is no happiness to be found therein.
38. Seek ye the Master of the Keys of the Kingdom and His righteousness and ye shall prosper in all your works.
39. Exalt not yourselves in any wise, supposing that ye are a law unto youselves, nor suppose that ye are wise ones, for ye are all new-born, yea, every one.
40. The mysteries5 of the Kingdom I shall give unto those who are faithful and trusting as little children;
41. But unto those who seek their own way shall be given loneliness and frustration. Even so. Amen.
