My Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

No Need of God

Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous–with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the poor in spirit (the humble, who rate themselves insignificant), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!
(Mat 5:3 AMP)

This popped out at me. Check this out. The first of the beatitudes says happy are the spiritually destitute. If you’re destitute, then you will be like the dog waiting at his master’s table for a crumb to fall on the ground. To have this mindset is key for the rest of the beatitudes to fall into place. The Greek word for poor is, “ptōchós”, fem. ptōchḗ, neut. ptōchón, adj. from ptōssō (n.f.), to crouch, cower like a beggar. Poor and helpless. As a subst., someone in abject poverty, utter helplessness, complete destitution.

Now compare that with the Church of Laodicea, Rich, increased with goods, and having need of nothing.

And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the trusty and faithful and true Witness, the Origin and Beginning and Author of God’s creation: [Isa. 55:4; Prov. 8:22.] I know your [record of] works and what you are doing; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth! For you say, I am rich; I have prospered and grown wealthy, and I am in need of nothing; and you do not realize and understand that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. [Hos. 12:8.]
(Rev 3:14-17 AMP)

Is it any wonder the American church doesn’t see God move, He simply isn’t needed. We have replaced prayer with programs, agonizers with organizers.

The time has come for the judgment to begin, and it will begin with God’s family. If it starts with us, what will be the end for those who refuse to obey the Good News of God? If it’s hard for the person who has God’s approval to be saved, what will happen to the godless sinner? (1Pe 4:17-18 GW)
