THE WAY ABOVE THE STORM
Storms are with us on Planet Earth in our natural lives.
In our journey through time on earth, there will
be good times of bright sunny weather and other times of strong storms.
Some storms of our life may be public and involve a large area and many people. Some other storms can be private and internal, experienced
primarily by one person and those who are close to him or her.
There is no question as to whether or not every person who lives long on earth will experience storms of life. The real question of significance
is, how will the storms affect us within?
THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMS RIGHT TO A MAN.
“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is
the way of death.” Proverbs 14:12.
THERE IS ALSO A WAY THAT IS HIGHER.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher
than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9.
If our lives are lived entirely or even primarily by the way of man – if our sense of wellbeing comes from anything or
anyone in this world, a tragic disastrous “storm” can destroy our wellness for the rest of our lives.
There is a way, a road above all the storms of life, a way that can secure our wellbeing
of the peace and joy of a productive life now in this world.
JESUS IS THE WAY AND CAME TO BRING PEACE ON EARTH AND GOODWILL TOWARD MAN.
IS IT REALLY
POSSIBLE TO LIVE IN PERFECT PEACE NOW IN THIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD? And what about the times of tribulation, wars, rumors of wars, and storms of great destruction? What about the reality of righteous judgment coming forth in the land? Can there really be peace
for anyone on earth in a turbulent earth -shaking apocalyptic cataclysmic season of events on earth?
The answers to these questions is a true YES and NO. I’m not being cute here. Let me explain.
For many people the answer is no, and for some the answer is yes.
FOR THE NATURAL-MINDED PERSON THE ANSWER IS NO.
For those who are in the natural
mindset of mankind, the storm is great tragic loss of everything in waves of fear and great sorrow at the destruction of life as it was before the storm.
Even worse are the wounded people who in times
of relative peace and good times in the world around them are tormented by a horrible storm within themselves. Many forms of fear tear apart the fabric of their minds, hearts, and lives.
FOR THE SPIRIT-MINDED
PERSON THE ANSWER IS YES!
For those who are in the Spirit with their minds set upon things above, the storm is a major force of cleansing or correcting a world lost in disorder. Far above the storms of
the natural world, in the heart of God, there is perfect love, perfect peace, and ultimate wisdom. Oneness with God floods our being with His love and peace and aligns us with His purpose and provision. We see, feel, and experience in every way the glory of
God keeping us in the perfect peace of His righteous joyful love far above the storms of fallen natural life of good and evil.
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because
he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3.
“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind (affection) on things
above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:1-2.
THE SELF DESTRUCTION OF MAN’S GODLESS WAY
Across the planet a portion of man’s
way has been dissolved in recent times as a growing remnant of people have ascended into the way of God in Christ. Some of God’s people have been drawn into becoming one with Father God by His love and goodness in Christ that is flowing by the Holy Spirit
and filling their hearts. An all-consuming intimate love relationship with God has drawn them into the way of Spirit life that is above this natural life.
The way of natural fallen mankind no longer rules
their lives. They are as dead, crucified with Christ and alive unto God. They are truly in this world but not of this world.
Many others are now in the process of coming into the place of this intimate
relationship of oneness with God. As the intense chastening and cleansing judgments increase on earth, these in process will quickly lose their remaining portions of man’s ways and be ascended into the fullness of oneness with Father God.
Many will turn to God with their whole hearts. However, multitudes will curse God for their tribulation and perish in the fires of judgment. God is not willing that any should perish, and He is doing all that can be
done to love mankind out of a destiny of death and into a destiny of glorious love, peace, and joy in the way of God on earth.
TODAY IN AMERICAN AND THE WESTERN WORLD, MULTITUDES ARE IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION.
The seriousness of this time cannot be overstated. There is a spark of life in America that is bringing a short season of prosperity and mercy that is calling for all to turn to God with their WHOLE HEARTS. THE TIME
IS NOW! HOLD NOTHING BACK!
Turn to God with your whole heart. Turn from a busy life of many things to seeking first, beyond all else, the way of God, His kingdom rule of love and peace, His life, the life
of Christ filling you by the Holy Spirit. Find your joy, His joy, in Christ Jesus in you and you in Him in the Holy Spirit. Ask and you shall receive; knock and it will open to you. The call is to you and those with you to open to Christ in the Holy Spirit.
He is now at the door, open wide and receive the fullness of His life of love, righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
GOD’S WAY OF REJOICING IN HIS PEACE IS ABOVE ALL STORMS
“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are
lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in
me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:4-9.
“A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at
your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew
