Thank you Enoch because your title explains the truth in a humility which is likened to our true state in Christ.
Just as Yeshua came to 'serve' so we are to imitate our King.
"For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve — and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Water and Fire: Baptism of both through repentance and a long suffering pleading to persevere.
The challenge will be in the sudden numbness that will befall the world including HIS children. As HE withdraws HIS Spirit there will come over us (it
has already begun) a fearful silent apathy that will make motivation a feat to dwell in HIS Word. Even now the slumber has surfaced throughout the
world at large and HIS children are beginning to feel the sting of HIS absence in a timely withdrawal.
Many are beginning to panic because they cannot control what is over coming them in the great challenge to keep the oil lamps burning. This is the
real challenge that we all have to face. We must read The Word of God and pray that HE will give us the perseverance and long suffering to continue in
The desert comes where the wilderness will leave our hearts dry and we will need to pray with everything in us that the water pours over us from HIS
The true challenge has just begun and is quickly spreading throughout the world. The day is drawing near when HIS Spirit shall be withdrawn from the
planet. We are already beginning to experience the first impact of that withdrawal.
When you begin to experience the pain and agony of that 'apathy' where emotionally you are likened to a desert get on your knees and pray. Pray for
repentance because this will be the wilderness of your soul in the ultimate challenge. It is terrifying and those that are able to cry out to God our
FATHER and King will be amongst the elect because if it were possible even the elect would be deceived and HE will be giving the rebellious world over
to their reprobate minds.
"God gave them over to a reprobate mind. A thought is repeated here that has already been hinted, and is often taught in the Scriptures. The man who
turns from the truth will be allowed to have his way, will fall deeper and deeper into error, and will reap all the evil consequences of loving
darkness rather than light. Those who hate the truth are "given over to a reprobate mind". A reprobate mind is one rejected of God. Which are not
convenient. Not decent, or honorable".
There is a fire coming and it will be fought inside our hearts and souls.

Your thread was beautifully expressed and I am glad to understand your choice in Title though I do not bear a preference to the terminology, however I
understand now why you have chosen such.
It is a long and perilous journey but through HIM and "in all these things we are superconquerors, through the one who has loved us." (Romans 8:37) We
just need to cling in truth to that truth, wading through all the storms and deserts that we are yet to face in the knowledge that it has already been
We walk in His footsteps only He is leading us and carrying us until the end.
Bless you and all HIS laborers and may HIS Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Amein.
