God in his self revelation, is the reality of who he is, what he has accomplished, by his work of reconciliation.
The hard reality of being a believer, is that God is moving on, he is moving on into the fullness and finality, of the reality of what he accomplished at Calvary.
History is the self revelation of the reality of the eternal God, who is revealed in the canvas of the present time.
God does not rest in history, but he continues to move onto into places, and realities, which sometimes stagger all our categories? of who we think he should be.
Gods ways are so past finding out. When we think we have arrived at a place, when we think that we truly know him, then he seems to hide his face from us.
What we have come to know in our past history, even if it was a true reality of his presence and power, will not get us through to the end of what he is now doing now in Christ Jesus?
God does not camp out at any place in history, he reveals himself throughout history, but he does not dwell in present history.
History is full of places and shrines, of a once present self revelation, of the event of an eternal God.
No matter how great of a move of his spirit is in history, it does not last in present history, God continues to move on, either we move on with him, or we build a tabernacle, or a shrine to a once living reality of a once present God.
It is always a time of calamity, to know that what once was a living well, has now become empty dry spring.
God is moving on, if we want to continue to find new wells of truth and revelation, then we need to learn how to move with him, even though the journey is very hazardous and strange?
God does not let us live on revelation of what once was given for our sustenance, God calls us on into the unknown pathways.
To truly walk with the Lord, one must come into a child like faith, trusting in a God who does spare nor avoid us being offended, in the ways, 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. 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, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 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 given, 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, which once one partook of?
In my experience, God does not bring us back into wells we once drank from, even though they were very refreshing at the time, the new wells sometimes are very strange and different?
