Gather Together His Elect From The Four Winds

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hi N____,

Thank you for this very exciting and inspiring e- mail.
Our detractors often accuse us of thinking we are the only people who know our Lord. Of course that is not true and none of us have ever said or taught such a thing. We all believe that Christ is the head of His own church, His own body, and is quite capable of working in the lives of each part of His own body.
This e- mail proves just how true that is inasmuch as you and I both knew the voice of the True Shepherd before we knew each other, and we both rejoice when we hear that voice in other parts of His body where ever that may be in this world.
We must all confess to feeling at times as if we, like Elijah, are alone in our desire to be faithful to our Lord, but we know that He has always had His “7,000” who have not bowed the knee to Baal.
You are right when you notice that there is no charge for the good news we have so freely received. If ever you see a price tag for anything, then you know you are not dealing with the mind of our Lord who was so clear in instructing us to be just as generous with others as He has been with us:

Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Here is how that “healing takes place:

Psa 107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

It is “the Word of God” which casts out demons and heals us of our infirm, carnal, Babylonian mind, and it is given freely by any one who truly knows our Lord. It is also His Word which “gathers us together” in Him.

Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

I am looking forward with great anticipation to reading the rest of your story about how the Lord has been dealing with you over the years. None of us come to know the Lord without first serving “another Jesus”, before being brought to see our need for the True Shepherd. The details of our stories all vary, but it is all the same “one event” of being judged through the fire of the Word of God:

Ecc 9:2 All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.

Please pass on the greetings of the few scattered brothers and sisters from all around the world, to those who are there in Kenya with you. We are all “joints” in “His body” which “supply” nourishment for that “one body”:

Eph 4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

It is my prayer that our Lord will continue dragging you and your household to Himself no matter what the cost to your flesh.

Act 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
