Have you seen the golden chalice of God? It is filled with mixture.
Have you seen the cloak of His presence? It is crimson wool.
The presence of God is full and sweet like honey after a locust – the bitterness ends and sweetness begins in the anointed place of God.
There is a table at which we can dine, the bread and the wine.
Oh for fellowship, sweet fellowship! Have you been alone, my friend? Have you been found lying dead in the woods? Is that where the battle left you? In a place by the wayside, alone?
Would you like to be found, does your heart cry a sound?
Come to the master’s table – His presence not merely a fable.
Elijah’s secret is this: find a great locust, with large bulbous eyes – a bug which resists you with palpable strength. Force your way past the gag reflex, the resistance of your flesh. Humble thyself: REPENT.
Make you low before the Highest teach yourself submission – and the sweetest fellowship will be yours, for even the Master learned obedience through the things that He suffered (Hebrews 5:8).
Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.
