TODAY IS END OF THE ROAD FRIDAY Part 2 of 2
I'll be applying this old phrase to THE END OF many subtly evils entailed with family ties, friends, acquaintances, business ventures, employment, etc. Surely, I dare to even try to sugar-coat this blog, for THE END OF ROAD is the beginning for all those who walk in the freedom of Jesus Christ.
Hold up wait a minute! In no way am I implying you call your siblings and end relationships that need be tweaked by God. In no way am I implying you stop speaking to your friends, due to difference. In no way am I implying you cancel meetings, phone calls, or communication with acquaintance, because you feel a certain way. In no way am I implying you interrupt all business ventures, because it's not going as you planned. In no way am I implying you quit your job. By all means this would be your flesh, being manipulated by suggestions from the enemy (Satan).
The END OF THE ROAD, I'm writing about is for folk that have decided not to allow anyone or anything that is evil to filter their relationship with God. For our God is not a God of confusion, deceit, lies, betrayal, gossip, etc for all of these things are of the flesh. "God is not a God of disorder. He is a God of peace." (1 Corinthians 14:33). Gods people are to always dwell in peace, and sometimes in order to maintain that peace one must END ROADS in which they know.
Listen, even Abraham the father of many nations had to meet the END OF ROAD by forsaken all that he knew. What about Moses he also had to endure the END THE ROAD when he fled Egypt. As well as King David when he ENDED THE ROAD with his own son, as well as King Saul. There are many, many other fine examples of the END OF THE ROAD. As you expound on these, and the many others you'll understand even the more THE END OF THE ROAD is entailed with much pain, disappointments, illusions, and sorrow.
Some one asked me a very, very long time ago "was I prepared to END all that I knew in order for the gospel of Jesus Christ to go fourth in my life." At the time I declared as Peter declared "I'm willing to END all that I know for Christ." Let's be real, many of us declare this statement, but have no inkling what Jesus is really asking of us. I'll be the first one to admit, when I accepted this statement as my own, I just wanted to follow Jesus, I had no idea following Jesus would cost my ego (flesh) a great deal of discomfort. However as I've allowed God to disillusion me from the many false illusions that were painted on my canvas per-say, I've had to eat the very words that I've spoken "I'm willing to END all that I know for Christ." Which sometimes has meant me ENDING all that I know in order for my truth concerning Jesus to not become polluted, manipulated, exaggerated, or exasperated. What amazes me the most is it's not "Susie L Hill" that's ENDING anything, its the Jesus in me that will not partake of any one or thing that tries to usurp over His truth that richly dwells in me.
My friends, faith has brought me this insight, and now I fully understand what Jesus meant when he said "What I'm about to tell you is true," Jesus replied. "Has anyone left home or family or field for me and good news? They will receive 100 times as much in this world. They will have homes and families and fields. But they will also be treated badly by others. In the world to come they will live forever." (Mark 10:29-30). I think the most difficult part of this scripture to digest for me was "I would be treated badly by others.' Mm mm, lets ponder this for a moment. Now what does Jesus mean? It's really simple, for He is reiterating the hate that the world had and still has for Him, as well as the greatest commandment "Love our God with all of our heart, mind and soul."
The question to ask "Is Jesus really asking us to END THE ROAD with our loved ones?" As I read this scripture and searched many translations, and meanings this is exactly what He is asking of us. Please get this, if our family, friends, acquaintance, business ventures, etc refuse to walk in Jesus truth, then very well so were either going to END them, or we'll succumb to there many evils. I believe one of the many reasons Jesus mentions our family, and friends is to drive the point home, that following him with all our heart, body, an soul would have to be an absolute.
THE END OF THE ROAD always require that you forsake this world, and if your husband, wife, mother, father, sister, brother, or children refuse to forsake this world for the sake of Jesus and the gospel by professing of his righteousness, as well as preaching the Gospel then one will have no choice, but to END THE ROAD with such. Who'll deny this is one of the most difficult things for any Christian to do, however it is needed when those that we care so deeply for refuse to adhere and follow Jesus as well as the gospel according to him.
Now this doesn't mean that the Christians that refuse to END THE ROADS will go to hell, what it means is they'll never bear much fruit while on this earth, and they'll never live in the freedom in which God wants them to. I desire to go to heaven and bear much fruit on earth, therefore when THE END OF THE ROAD appears I must be proactive in proceeding to the next road.
Thank you Jesus, for the Holy Ghost richly dwelling in us during these grueling times, being that constant helper, while disillusioning us from the many illusions that tries to usurp over THE END OF THE ROAD. It yet astonishes me how the Holy Ghost resides in all believers of Jesus Christ, and how this Spirit pleads with us, and sometimes begs us to END THE ROAD by revealing to us the many signs that state "END OF ROAD." Yet, still with all these warnings, and pleads we run off the cliff to destruction, because we refuse to adhere "END OF THE ROAD."
Okay, yet again I have to admit how much I detest the END OF THE ROAD. And how on many occasions I've tried to avoid them. Also I've been known to prematurely exit off by avoiding all the signs, all the while hoping and praying this isn't going to be THE END. As well as allowing folk to sway me from ENDING THE ROAD through manipulation, lies, guilt, etc, all to still have to END THE ROAD for me to go fourth in the gospel.
I beg of you, to please get this. Many times the Holy Ghost has spoken to me that this is THE END OF THE ROAD, and I said "surely this isn't God speaking to me, so I continued on and fell off the cliff "figuratively speaking." As I've said before, our ego (flesh) detest any discomfort what so ever, therefore instead becoming uncomfortable we'll rather dishonor the God we say we love, and I walk in utter disobedience to Him by not adhering to END OF THE ROAD. Oh, by the way, I repented of such rebellion. Did you know that when Gods says its the END, and we continue to ignorantly or foolishly walk in rebellion were practicing witchcraft? "Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols." (1 Samuel 15: 23). Isn't that interesting... Lets pause for a moment. Now lets breath out, and read again if need be.
Allow me to share with you one of my former rebellion in ENDING THE ROAD. I willing returned to a place from whence I knew God had ENDED THE ROAD. My ego (flesh) entailed with pride wasn't bowing out so easily, even though God had clearly spoken "talk about that rebellious spirit." Also I had some folk in my ear "You were there before them, if I were you I would do this, that, and the other." "I think you taken this the wrong way." "It was wrong, but it wasn't personally, that's the way they are." With all being said and done, my ego (flesh) was out of order, and I had the nerve (flesh) to return to that place in which I was asked in so many words not to come back too. Foolishly, I wanted to make sure it was God speaking to me "THE END OF THE ROAD." Talk about allowing the ego (flesh) with all it's pride enough space to apply trickery to the truth in which I knew.
As I walked in, for the first time ever I was greeted as a guest " Good morning Ms. Hill." The hairs on my neck stood up, and I knew for sure this was the END as I knew it. As I sat down I could hear the voice repeatedly "Ms.Hill." The management were piercing their eyes at me "as if I didn't hear clearly the last time I was there." As you may know the enemy (Satan) was there, so he advantaged the situation by employing one of the managers to sit directly behind me in which has never, ever occurred before. I could hear the Holy Spirit softly speaking to me "Pride, oh thou pride."
As I sat there I kept thinking about all the other folk who'd left when the END OF THE ROAD appeared, and how the organization graciously accepted them whenever they reappeared. I was saying "what's up God!" The Holy Ghost softly spoken to me "You don't belong here anymore. The writing is on the wall, so why are you trying to erase it." Then here comes my ego (flesh) "pride" entailed with thoughts from the enemy (Satan) "prove the point. Get on your cell phone, and call the big twigs " persay "I know them personally." Admittedly, I was fighting a war with my flesh and spirit, however the very moment I accepted this was the END, was the moment I felt one again with the Holy Ghost. I consciously decided that after this meeting adjourned, I would quickly depart, and not return unless instructed by the Holy Ghost.
Strangely the purification process of separation immediately taken hold of me, as I was riding down the streets, I started to cry profusely "cried myself sick." I called my sister, and she prayed with me, and said "Susie this is the beginning of something so beyond your imagination. God is going to prove to you this is his doing." Thank you sister. She comforted me all the way home. I went to bed very early crying, and talking with God. I wanted to know why, when, how, where, and who would unfold on this NEW ROAD that he was asking me to merge upon.
Sadly for them, after I ENDED THAT ROAD many of them started lies of rumor mills entailed with many of there own illusions. They stated, I said this, that, and the other. I done this, that, and the other. As evil would have it, yet again the enemy (Satan) had suggested many evil thoughts to good folk who complied to there ego (enemy) with much gossip, lies, betrayal, etc.
Thank goodness, I was a hundred percent innocent, and I'm hundred percent sure God will vindicate my name. All the while I refused, and to this day I still refuse to place my mouth against those who foolishly, or ignorantly opposed me. Surely the ego-enemy has tried to employ me as well, but each time I'm reminded, and encouraged by this scripture "No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every evil word that is spoken against me, I shall contest it by my testimony. And this is the benefit enjoyed by all of Gods servants. He will vindicate me , I, the Lord, have spoken!" (Isaiah 54:17). Paraphrase mine. This scripture has assisted me more times than I can mention.
Isaiah 54:17.... Funnily, when I first learned this scripture I thought I was only going to apply it to Satan, and this evil world, little did I know I'll be applying it to the very things that were once so dear to me. Some may ask "how do you know when it's THE END OF THE ROAD?" Rest assure, you'll either walk away gracefully, or you'll be pushed away forcefully by others, or mysteriously that thing, person, or place may just up and go. There are many more, however these are just a few I've experienced when THE END OF ROAD occurred in my life.
Thank you God! For his mercy endureth that day, and his steadfast love enabled me to see his truth, regardless of how I rebelled by allowing my ego (flesh) to usurp over His truth. Our God loves us so deeply, even when we outright rebell against him. I believe these are the times He deals with our heart instead of our actions, surely what we can't do he'll make possible for us to do through our spirit aligning with his truth.
As I reflect on the many END OF THE ROAD undertakings, I can see God diligently working on my behalf in all aspects. Mysteriously as it maybe, I can chuckle about it today, rest assure in no way was I chuckling about it then. Real talk... Isn't it true that God is very much aware of every weakness, disappointment, sorrow, pain, etc that we'll ever experience in this life. And I so believe the God of all has no problem with us telling him how we feel about the hurt it causes us to END THE ROAD. However we must be careful that it doesn't arrive in the contents of grumbling and complaining "done that before too." I already repented for such foolishness."
As I evolve from one level of consciousness to the next, I'm learning that the END OF THE ROAD can seem to be one-sided only effecting those that are doing the ENDING. This too is an illusions, believe me just as your ego is being hurt for the gospel, there ego is being hurt for the world. By that I mean, if your feeling hurt and separation from that which you care so deeply for ENDING. The world is feeling hurt and separation from that which they assumed they had control of ENDING.
