No matter what put you where you are now, you’re not beyond God’s reach. Let nothing or no one convince you otherwise.
Life circumstances put Mephiboseth in lo debar, Sickness put Lazarus in the grave, Herod put Peter in prison, Sin put the invalid in Bethesda for 38 years, Pressure put Moses in the Nile, The Devil put Job in bankruptcy, Joseph’s brothers put him in slavery, Purpose put Jesus in the grave. Yet, God took them all out of their unpleasant circumstance. NO MATTER WHAT PUT YOU WHERE YOU ARE, GOD CAN AND WILL TAKE YOU OUT.
There are only two things that makes God abandon men where they are, UNBELIEF AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, with either of these two in place, God will not get involved in a man’s case. THERE IS A MYSTERY WHICH I HAVE SEEN AND NOW DO I DISCLOSE IT TO YOU:
‘LIFE WILL ALWAYS GIVE MAN AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISPLEASE AND DOUBT GOD, SO AS TO KEEP MAN IN IT’S PRISON; LIFE KNOWS THAT GOD WILL SURELY COME FOR A MAN THAT BELIEVES AND BEHAVES WELL BEFORE HIM, SO TO PREVENT GOD FROM COMING, LIFE OFFERS IT’S VICTIMS THE PLEASURES OF SIN AND DOUBT.’
Take for example, when life puts a man in the prison of poverty and penury, it gives such man the pleasures of pornography or of masturbation or of gambling or alcoholism or of conceit or of excess sleep.. etc in other to ensure that God stays away from such a man. LIFE KNOWS THAT GOD CANNOT BEHOLD INIQUITY, SO WHENEVER A MAN IS IN THE PRISON OF LIFE, LIFE PAINTS THEM WITH INIQUITY IN OTHER TO KEEP GOD AWAY FROM RESCUING THEM.
Your change of level depends on your level of faith and purity. YOU WILL HAVE TO CONTEND FOR BOTH EVEN TO THE POINT OF BLOODSHED BEFORE YOU CHANGE LEVELS. There are only two ways to get both and it is THE WORD AND PRAYER WAY. FOR THE TIME SPENT IN THE WORD AND PRAYER IS THE ONLY DETERMINANT OF A MAN’S LEVEL OF FAITH AND PURITY.
