Isn’t it strange? When the Israelites were set free from Egyptian bondage their immediate action was not to celebrate but to complain. They yearned for the former and not so far removed days of slavery. What’s with that? What’s with that is a sign of lazy souls. Some would rather live in the confines of order (even if it is called slavery) than the uncharted invisible wonders of freedom. God had just pulled the plug on Pharoah’s restrictive and prohibitive mean-spirited suffering which had been imposed upon God’s children. Yet, those supposed God-fearers were scared of the unknown to such extent they publicly called for revolt and return. Hey, this wilderness is without street signs and maps. Captivity with a plan was better to them than clueless and non-directional freedom. What a lazy batch. What a slam against God.
Little has changed. Directional division reigns among God’s children today. The battle? There is a battle but basically only one side is engaged. The other side has retreated to their respectable prisons. They aren’t interested in Word research. They aren’t interested in reaching the lost. They just aren’t interested. When one studies one will be led to make changes in his beliefs. The same as yesteryear; some feel safer in the captivity of rules and regulations not imposed by God than to try to live in the invisible zone only sensed by unreasonable and risky faith. The lazy way out (the cheap way out) is still the desire of too many hearts. These do not want to study the Word and possess low tolerance for change.
Faith is not a natural standard. It operates in the spirit realm. It does not come with definition and dimension as much as hope and promise. I encourage you to look upon the unframed hopes of the invisible for this is truly eternal. Disregard the safety net of the seen. This is always temporary.
