A Ministry To Help Those Who Are Seeking The Fulness Of Life With Our Lord Jesus Christ
The School Of The Kingdom Of God
Those who aspire to be a partaker with the Lord in His End-Time purposes must enter the School of Christ and be recreated, developed, and trained. These must pass through a process of crucifixion, testing, chastening and correction.
The first thing necessary is to discover this School of Preparation, then seek to gain entrance. One must know that this course of training is available before he can enter its classes. A knowledge of its requirements is helpful; accepting them is essential. Unless we submit to this time of processing, our participation in His End-Time purposes cannot be obtained.
Except we, in some measure, come to understand God’s ways of working, we may find ourselves involved in that which is at cross purposes with Him. He may be trying to crucify us through a certain individual, but all we see is someone trying to do us wrong. God may be applying the chastening rod, but we interpret it as someone wrongly abusing us.
If we will consider past persons and events and can recognize God at work refining us, we will find ourselves in His School of Preparation, having entered without our being aware of it.
Before we will be able to rightly relate to the classroom lessons of this school, we must come into a practical relationship with the Holy Spirit as our director and teacher. Each individual will be in a class by himself and receive the lessons specifically fitted to the crucifixion of his will, heart, and carnal nature. These deal inwardly, backward in correction concerning incidents of the past, and forward in preparation toward the intended position and work to occupy us in that day.
Jesus, the Master Rebuilder, is at hand through the Holy Spirit, diligently working with fullers soap, refiner’s fire, winnowing fan, trying circumstances, and unreasonable people. He will bring to bear all these, and many other crucifying, chastening, and correcting people and trying things, which are exactly suited to our individual processing.
The only safe way is to face them all. See no man. Rather, see it as being appointed of the Lord. The Lord will formulate conditions, and set in our path persons adapted to reach and correct our every crooked or warped tendency. We must accept and understand the fact that it is the Lord at work.
An almost endless variety of incidents and people, strangely unaccountable, may gather around us. If we will remain steadfast and faithful, after we come through it all, we will be a greatly changed person, and have become “a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work (2 Timothy 2:21).”
There are many who talk about End-Time truth, but few seem to find the door that leads into this School of Holy Spirit Preparation. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “They say, and do not.”
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves (James 1:22).”
God bless you,
