Throughout my lifetime, I’ve had the opportunity to explore both the realms of humanity and Christianity. Have you ever come across the verse ‘keep to yourself and stay away from me’ For I am holier than you (Isaiah 65:5). I have experienced that verse as well. Each of those phases of life resulted in disappointment. Thanks to their worlds, I experienced personal growth, although I didn’t stay in any of their communities.


The holy people brought charge against Jesus; I have felt that same charge and pain. The Christians take from the Lord’s table and feed it back into themselves. They adopted the Christian identity and built walls and structures to create their own enclosed culture, many growing self-righteous in the process. The holier than me are prideful people who think they know better than Jesus, since they are the ones who put Him on the cross. I’m not saying all holy people, or all Christians are doing this, but the Lord showed me He has felt the pain from all those worlds.


I heard about a cry coming from the hearts of Christians in a church abroad. They understand that they have ensnared themselves within a culture, a name, and walls. They cry out to the Lord, asking to be liberated from their self-imposed confinement. Their cry has been heard, and we will witness the walls crumble. This was a great hope I was waiting for.


The Lord will return to claim His bride, presenting her as a radiant church, pure and unblemished (Ephesians 5:27). He will choose one from here and another from there. He is after the heart of man, not His name, status or achievements.


If you take offense to the statement above, it suggests that you might still identify with a particular group. Above all else, the Lord sits enthroned, with the earth as His footstool. His identity isn’t tied to a name or location, but He is known as the Messiah, the Lord of all in both earth and heaven. My allegiance is to Jesus Christ, not a group of people associated with a specific community.


For if we have been united with Him in a death like this, we will certainly also be united with Him in a resurrection like His (Romans 6:5).


Seeing the face of Jesus Christ is impossible if we consider ourselves holier than others. Pride, once more, taints the soul of a person. Christ’s face will be revealed through humility. Once you’ve finished the race, triumphed over your fallen nature, and your primary aim is to behold the face of Jesus Christ, humility will be the key to unveiling His face within you. Not by works but by His spirit, says the Lord.


Christ’s compassionate love, hand, Holy Spirit, and angels are only a small portion of what is being bestowed upon the earth. His compassion is causing a shaking of all things in the old wineskin. However, to truly behold Him, we must surpass the limitations of human perception, religious institutions, and conventional holiness. There are still unseen things waiting for us.

 Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always (1 Chronicles 16:11). If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not withhold His own Son but gave Him up for all of us. Will He not with Him also give us everything else? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? 


But we are all unclean, and all our righteousness’s as filthy rags; and we do fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away (Isaiah 64:6).


Everything is vanity under the sun, but all things are used for His glory.
