On April 29th while reading a teaching by Johnny Enlow entitled, You Have Not Passed This Way Before, I had a quick vision. Given the fresh 'bread' found in his article, I found this vision like frosting on the cake.
You can read it in its entirety at: http://rivermistlighthouse.org/you_have_not_passed_this_way_before_by_johnny_enlow1
Vision: I was talking to a person standing in front of me. The Lord was standing behind me. I became transparent. The Lord reached His hands THROUGH me and lovingly embraced the person. He then pulled the person THROUGH me and to Himself. End
While I thought it was interesting, it happened so quickly it hadn't really occurred to me that I had just had a vision. As I continued to read the article, there was a word that jumped out at me. The word was all in caps and it was the word, THROUGH. It stunned me for a second as I thought about what I had just seen. This is what the sentence declared:
"We have so limited the Holy One of Israel and we will be astounded at what He does THROUGH us in these last days."
The sense I got from the Lord about this vision was that I, being representative of the Body of Christ, was talking to an unbeliever. It seems clear the Father wants us, as His Body, to be transparent so that He can draw the lost to Himself. We live and move and have our being IN Jesus. Being IN Christ and doing things THROUGH Him is how we fulfill the call to be His ambassadors to make His appeal and carry out the great commission given to us each. Our commission is found in Matthew 28:18-20:
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
It also paints a clear picture of John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except THROUGH Me." NKJV (Emphasis mine)
It is my desire to exhort you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, fully pleasing Him. I pray that you would be fruitful in every good work and increasing in knowledge and all wisdom and spiritual understanding of God. May you walk worthy ofChrist who called you into His own kingdom and glory. He has anointed you to be His ambassador. Jesus is making His plea to the lost THROUGH you so that they may be reconciled to God the Father THROUGH God the Son. Jesus taught that we do this by walking in His grace and truth THROUGH Him, for He is the Spirit of truth. It is knowing the truth and walking in the truth that sets us free. First gird up your loins with the belt of truth, continue to dress in God's armor, and walk in the truth of God's Word. Please see Ephesians 6:10-18 and John chapters 14-17 for further insight. A deeper study of the word THROUGH will thoroughly bless you. Remember that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Grace and peace - through Him,
