Who’s Being Lifted Up?
And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all to Myself. (Joh 12:32)
I had a very tragic vision on 07/25/2010. In the vision I could see many preachers, their pulpits
were lined up next to each other,they were very learned men, some were in suits and some were in robes,and they were preaching to a very large …congregation . The eyes of everyone in the congregation and their attention were on these preachers. In back of these preachers I could see Jesus on the cross. Not one of the preachers ever mentioned the cross in his preaching and no one in the congregation ever looked at the cross, their eyes were on the preachers and they were attentive to the “wisdom” that was being taught by them.
Jesus said in John that if He was lifted up that He would draw all men to Himself. In the vision that the Lord gave me 4 years ago, it was not Jesus and the cross that was the draw but instead it was the “wisdom” of the pastors preaching to the congregation. The congregation paid absolutely no attention to Jesus nor the cross but their focus was on the pastors and their “wisdom’. Which brings me to the title of my post. Who is being lifted up? Whom is the church gathering to hear from? What is the draw, if you will, that is attracting them? The verse below is what comes to mind.
For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear. And they will turn away their ears from the truth and will be turned to myths. (2Ti 4:3-4)
