Calling from both sides

THE.SEAL.OF.THE.ANTICHRIST_ LA.CA FRIDAY_ 55-0311
But I don’t mean to hurt you; I mean that we get this straightened out. You’ll see one of the greatest revivals that ever swept the country. That’s right. We get back to the starting place, begin right. There’s only one thing to do; that’s come back, if you see you hit the wrong road, make back-tracks, go back and see where you started from.
Man usually, when he’s borned in the Kingdom of God, his face set right straight towards Calvary. Now, if he’s just a little bit emotional, he will go off on fanaticism. If He’s just a little bit his shrewd education, he will get so starchy, that he sets over on this side. That’s right. But the true Church of the living God, goes right down to the center of the highway, preaching a sane solid Gospel, calling from both sides. Amen.
That’s what we need today, a church that he wouldn’t be ashamed for anyone to come into. It’s perfectly governed by the Holy Spirit, no fanaticism, no starchy, just a good warm church, filled with God’s Spirit. Watch that, the good solid Gospel teaching pastors. That’s what we need. Amen. God help us to have it. God wants us to have it.

I’d like to use this post to “call from both sides”. Bro Nathan and I were discussing the VGR quote of the day from 5/31/2010 the other day. We both noticed how, depending on your view point, you may read/hear this quote.

If you were to highlight important parts of the following quote, what would you highlight?

PUTTING.ON.THE.WHOLE.ARMOR.OF.GOD_ S.PINES.NC THURSDAY_ 62-0607
Listen, did you ever think what that offices of the church is? It’s God’s dress, inside dress, an apostle, a prophet, a seer. Foresee, before Satan ever gets to it, done told it. What is it? God dressed up in His church. These offices is God’s dress-wear. When you see those offices, pastors, teachers, evangelists, what is that? That’s God’s dress-wear, God’s Presence, God’s Spirit and It’s working through man. And if that office denies any of this Word, then it’s not God-dressing. No, not that. That’s that wolf in sheep’s clothing. Watch that fellow. Beware of him. But when he just takes what the Word says, remember, that’s God, ’cause He’s speaking His Word. See? But if he says, “Well, it isn’t…” Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, my. Get going, sheep; get going!

Go ahead, try it. Think it through.

Here’s a couple scenarios we thought of:

What one viewpoint might highlight:

You see? We can make the same quote emphasize two totally different viewpoints. I’m reminded of the following quote:

THE.SIGNS.OF.HIS.COMING_ CLEVELAND.TN SATURDAY_ 62-0407
Moses and his sign, God-given sign, Scriptural sign… Do you believe Moses’ sign was Scriptural? How did Moses know? How did Moses know it was God? When he went down there he understood, being born to be a prophet, he had the Word of the Lord he knowed. So he goes down there to deliver Israel, and he found out he was out of date. The people didn’t want him. A prophet can never deliver his message unless the people wants to hear it. So God just called His prophet in the wilderness. Sure. Took him out there and let the people suffer a little longer till they was ready. Moses was ready; God was ready; but the people wasn’t. They stayed forty years longer because they wasn’t ready. That’s exactly right.

Are we ready to hear the message – the ENTIRE message yet? Or do we only want to hold to the parts we like to emphasize?

I implore you, please pray to our Lord and Savior and ask for His revelation in our lives. The sooner we throw down OUR ideas, and are open to HIS leading and ALL the Word says, the sooner we can take our promised land.

May His coming rejoice your heart,
Bro Trevor
