God is a self revelation the reality of who he is and what he has accomplished in the work of reconciliation.
The hard truth of being a believer, is that God is moving on, he is moving on into the fullness of the reality of what he accomplished at Calvary.
History is the self revelation of the reality of the eternal God revealed in the canvas of the present time.
God does not rest, he continues to move onto into places and realities, which stagger our categories of who he truly is.
Gods ways are so past finding out. Once we think we have arrived at a place were now we think we truly know him, then it seems he hides his face from us.
What we have come to know in the past, even if it was a true reality of his presence and power revealed in the midst of our gatherings and walk, will not get us through to the end of what he is now doing in Christ Jesus.
God does not camp out at any place in history, he reveals himself in history, but he does not dwell in history.
History is full of places and shrines of a once present self revelation of his event of presence in the midst of his people.
No matter how great of a move of his glory in history, it does not last in history, God continues to move on, either we move with him, or we build a tabernacle to a once living reality of a eternal God.
It is always a time of calamity to know that what once was a living well, has now become empty.
God is moving on, if we want to continue to find new wells of truth and revelation, then we need to learn to move with him, even though the journey is a hazardous and strange pathway.
God does not let us live on revelation of what once was truly given for our sustenance, God calls us on into the unknown path. What once was truly given by him must now be let go?
To truly walk with the Lord, one must come into a child like faith, trusting in a God who does not avoid us being offended by the ways in which he leads us.
Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brethren, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are mature be thus minded; and if in anything you are otherwise minded, God will reveal that also to you. Philippians 3
Paul near the end of his journey continued to be in a state of pressing on, leaving what once was and leaning into what is ahead.
The hard part of the journey is that the new wells one finds might not be similar to the old wells once one partook of?
In my experience God does not bring us back into wells once drank from, even though they were very refreshing, the new wells sometimes have a very different kind of a taste?
I believe that everything God has done through Christ is only revealed in the revelation of the Cross of Calvary. When one sees the truth of Christ and him crucified, then one sees true reality.
