GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO WALK AS JESUS: “Whoever says he abides in Him ought [as a personal debt] to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He walked and conducted Himself.” (I John 2:6)
TO ALL- LET US PURPOSE IN OUR HEARTS TO WALK AS HE DID:
Greetings in the name of Jesus, the name above all names. There is power in that name. Once we are born again, we take the name of Jesus on as our new family name. Not only do we get His name for our own, but we also get His mind, His nature, His inheritance and all that He is. How do we manifest His nature and who He is in us? We feed on His Word continually. In doing so, we will begin to think His thoughts, we will begin to speak His words and we will begin to walk as He walked and do the deeds that he did. Look at the truth and reality in what He told us in John 14:12:
“I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.”
The key is to rise to a point where we actually believe what Jesus said and then actually walk in the reality of who we are IN HIM!
One day in Cuba, we had a particularly long day. We were stranded most of the day in sweltering heat as our 1955 Chevrolet Belair blew an oil hose on an isolated country road, miles from anywhere. We waited hours for a farmer to tow us to the nearest village where a patch up repair job could be performed. Finally the hose was fixed and we headed for home, about 50 miles away. It was now very late and Jan and I along with our Cuban pastor and driver were exhausted. We looked ahead with great anticipation to reaching our little room and sweet sleep.
However we were soon to see that the challenges of the day were far from over. Shortly after we left the place where the car repairs were completed, a torrential downpour engulfed us. Visibility was almost zero, but the homeward instinct drove us on. Jan and I were in the back seat and I tried to peer through the small area of the windshield the miniature windshield wiper was desperately trying to keep clear. The rain blanketed the windshield from the outside and our breath fogged it from the inside. To add to our plight, semi trucks were hurling at us at 60-75 miles an hour. Every time they would come at us, their headlights had a blinding effect and then when they passed us, their spray totally obscured the windshield.
A good time to get nervous and rest on the verge of sheer panic, right? WRONG!!!!
I looked over at Jan and expected to have to encourage her to relax, but what I saw in her face was total calm. God took me to the storm through which Jesus slept until awakened by His disciples who feared greatly for their lives. Jesus slept because His Father had told Him to go to the other side. That is what he told His disciples when they left the shore. He had absolutely no doubt that if He was “going to the other side”, He would get to the other side.
Here is what God spoke to me. (And as He spoke, my being was filled with His light. (I mean filled!) This is a tremendous revelation of who Jesus is in us and who we are in Him. It blew over me like a mighty wind that night. CATCH THE WIND and your life will change forever! Here it is………..
IF JESUS CAN BE AT PEACE IN THE MIDST OF A GREAT STORM, SO CAN I!-AND SO CAN YOU!
The conclusion of what He revealed to me that stormy night was this. WALK AS JESUS WALKED. This, my dear friends is not the end of the story. It is simply the end of the beginning. As I have said before, Let’s do this together! Your life, my life is about to take a new glorious turn resulting in an intimacy with the Father and our Savior that we have not yet walked or lived in!
COME, LET’S TAKE THE MASTER’S HAND.
WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN
