The Lord's Requirement
I was in the middle of service when the Lord began to speak to me,
"This is why I resist many in the church. They are not humble before me. It is impossible to humble yourself before me and not before My people, for I am in My people. They are My image. Many believe that they can handle my people and not handle me. Judge in yourself whether it is possible to submit to me and not my instituted authority. Have we not yet discerned the mystery of godliness?
1 Timothy 3:16
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
I AM THE MYSTERY OF GODLINESS.
1. I am in your flesh
2. I have justified you in My Spirit
3. The angels see and honor me in you
4. I speak through your mouth the message to the church and the lost,
5. It is my glory that shines in you that is believed on in the world.
6. At the end, I will receive you unto myself.
THE CHURCH IS MY PRESENCE IN THE EARTH.
Who are my apostles? My prophets, and my teachers? Are they not My expression in the earth? The Church is a Holy Thing. How can you reject my leaders and not reject me? How can you reject the least one and not reject me? Did not Christ relay to you a mystery through His word to your brother Paul, who is with Me?
And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
Was not Paul's persecution towards the church? However, that which is done to My church is done unto me because I am the life of the Church. I am My Church.
I have taught you for days on the disposition of humility I require. Have you discerned my requirement? You have heard of my grace and desire it, but have you discerned what I require?
There are some of you who need wisdom, for you know not Me. Hear wisdom. What is your concern pertaining to submission? I have told you that submission to me, is when you obey, believe and agree with Me. Therefore, hear ye My Word and submit.
I AM IN MY PEOPLE.
If you do not submit to this truth you have no part with me.
The humility I require is that you obey, believe, and agree with Me as I speak to you through the Church and especially My leaders."
