Growing up from this World ~ Craving the Pure Milk of God's Word!

For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 COR 4:17-18. "For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?" ~ Romans 8:24.

A worldly person runs after things of this world: laws/rules, rituals, traditions, customs, practices, policies and all such works. Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. ~ 1 John 2:15. Jesus came to abolish the things of this world, the 'law' of this world and replace it with mercy and grace. Being born again, you become an alien of this world and its worldly things. Being born again, we begin to have the mind of Christ and look for eternal presence in Him letting go of the temporal. Yet, our bodies dog us. We do what we hate and not what we want as Paul also recognized in himself. However, being born again, we know that greater is  He who is in us than He who in the world. We in Christ will and can overcome the world; there is no sin that we cannot overcome in Christ Jesus. 

It is through our choosing Him to hear His voice (He draws us) everyday that we draw nearer to God. And, when we have setbacks, we give thanks as we feel that pain of any loss of the Holy Spirit. Even in that loss, we are renewed by it as becomes a thorn in our flesh, an affliction, which drives us to pursue the Lord even more to overcome it.  We grow out of love and in Grace , we grow up from and or grow out of this world (no longer babies taking just milk but pure milk of the Word) and in love with God ~ Jesus Christ. 

So... "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will" ~ Romans 12:2.

"For everything in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--comes not from the Father but from the world" ~ 1 John 2:16.

"Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord" ~ 1 Peter 2:1-3.

Praise the Lord for Being a New Creation in Christ!

We are a new creation in Christ, this how we overcome this fallen world, in this truth we filled with peace and joy! "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" ~ 2 COR 5:17.
The only way to the Father is through His Son Jesus Christ. There is a significant difference between being for Christ and being anti-Christ. Being anti-Christ is not giving all glory and honor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He entered into this fallen world to be born and to die for our sin which was to deliver us from evil, the sin of death. This fallen world will soon come to an end as we read in Revelations. If you are for Christ, you have nothing to worry about because Jesus Christ redeemed you from sin and in Him you/we have eternal life. There is no reason to cling to this life, to pray for health or wealth or for anything that we 'want' like a new car, a new house, a new job. Or to ask God to make America strong again, or Christian (as the Harlot Church System) again or whatever we think America should be or could be. 

Why? Because, we who are in the Body of Christ, the True Church, know that the Kingdom of God is within ~ Luke 17:21. Wherever we are, Whatever we have, do, or strive for is only possible because the Kingdom of God Jesus Christ is within and we give Thanks and Praise to Jesus Christ for all that. Jesus told us how to pray -"Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done"! Give thanks in all things! This prayer of thankfulness to Jesus Christ is what builds your treasure in Heaven. That is what it means to repent-rethink what it means to be for Christ, to be a New Creation in Christ, and what it means to be for Christ, and in Him we overcome this fallen world.

Yes, we can give thanks for the things we desire, we give thanks in that they have already been made manifest. A life of praise and thankfulness becomes a life filled with miracles! Instead of trying to be in control, you focus on Me and what I am doing. This is the power of praise: centering your entire being in Me. This is how I created you to live, for I made you in My own image ~ Jesus is Calling! By living in thankfulness in Christ, we have the desires of our heart ... Him!

"For everything in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--comes not from the Father but from the world" ~ 1 John 2:16.

This is a Fallen World ~ Woe to Those Who Do Right in their Own Eyes!

As Christians we must understand that this is still a fallen 'corrupted' world ~ Genesis 6:11, if you don't then you have a lack of depth in understanding of what it means to be a Christian. Why? Because, Christ died for our sins; and though He did that for us, this is still fallen world. God sent His Son Jesus Christ to come upon the earth to redeem mankind and to resurrect mankind from the sin of death.  Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved" ~ Acts 4:12.

Many people think that this world is the world we were created for or that Jesus came and now we live in the New Jerusalem. That is not true as many covenants of the Old Testament and New Testament have yet to be fulfilled. Both work together; concealing Christ and revealing Christ and our true destiny in Him.

In Genesis we read that sin entered in when Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan. And, we also read that since that event, things on earth got really bad for mankind; all of creation was at risk. We understand that God, Jesus Christ, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, of all things seen and unseen could not let Satan have control over His creation, though corrupted by him.

So, God destroyed the world in the time of Noah because of the corruption because of man's sin. What about the flood? Wasn't the world destroyed then because people continually sinned. Did not God at that time wipe out sin once and for all and reboot the system...?

Upon reading the story of Noah, we quickly learn that the flood did not wipe out sin. After the flood, Noah plants a vineyard and makes wine from the grapes he harvested. He became drunk and laid naked in his tent. One of his sons, Ham, happens to come upon him. Instead of being embarrassed for Noah, Ham gloats over Noah's weakness. Instead of trying to help Noah, Ham seeks out his brothers to laugh about his drunken father. However, Shem and Japheth did not find the situation funny. They immediately went to rectify the problem. They even refused to look at Noah in his weakness. They held a garment between them, walked in backwards so they would not see Noah's shameful condition.

Ham's sin was not his looking at his naked father, but what his action implied. Ham gloried in his father's shameful behavior, implying that he resented Noah's authority. We should not glory in another person's sin ~ Galatians 6:1. By Ham's reaction, sin entered in again.

As we read the Bible and learn, it was necessary was for God, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, to enter into this fallen world and to provide a means to overcome this corrupted world in its fallen condition for man alone was unable. God provided (using computer terms) an upgrade- Himself- Jesus Christ the Son of God, who entered in and became the patch in the system whereby man in his faith in the Son could overcome sin. Through Jesus Christ we are overcomers of this world, we are overcomes of the sin of death through Jesus Christ. This fallen world will come to an end once and for all. We who have been born again in Christ will be saved and 'uploaded' to eternal life.

"The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son. And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life" ~ 1 John 5:10-12.

"...Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life" ~ 1 Timothy 1:14-16.

Those, especially anyone calling themselves a Christian, who fail to recognize that this is still a fallen world do not fully understand why Christ is the only way to the Father and eternal life. All too often people look around trying to find out who is causing all/their problems in the world. They don't understand why bad things happen. Its because this is still a fallen world. They think that the 'right' man-made law will bring about heaven on earth. They fail as Christians to embrace the fact that they/we are sinners, Christ died for our sin. Why? Because, this is a fallen world. This world will come to pass. This is not the world that God intended for us eternally.

In this fallen world, we are to live for Christ for in Him we have life. What are we to do? Be humble before the Lord~ James 4:10. Preach the Gospel to all creation ~ Mark 16:15. That is our work. For there are no godly works we can do in a fallen world. Any such works we deem right or righteous are works of the flesh; even if done with good intentions as in your own choosing to do what is right in your own eyes. Woe to those who do right in their own eyes ~ Isaiah 5:21.

Who are those who do right in their own eyes? They are those who like to say "I always try to do the 'right' thing! I helped that person, man/woman, I prayed for him/her/ them, I gave to that group, I donated clothes to those people and children, I served in the soup kitchen, I sent money and food, I go to that church and give to that church, I support that party because they really know what's going on and what to do... These people with good intentions fail to realize that - Without Jesus Christ we are but filthy rags~ Isaiah 64:6. It is not about what you as 'I' can do. Nor is it about what we can do. It is what Jesus Christ did and continues to do in us.

Remember, because, this is a fallen world, there are no works that we can do to save it or to save ourselves in it. It is only by Jesus Christ who died for us that we have eternal life, Give Thanks and Praise to the Lord!

One can ask why didn't God just leave this fallen world by the wayside and start again with another. God's attributes are: justice, love, mercy and grace; which, were all in question and God had to prove that those attributes are true always in all situations (even in a fallen world) and do not nor never will contradict one another.

"For everything in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--comes not from the Father but from the world" ~ 1 John 2:16.

Fro Those Who Love Money ~ The Way to the Father is Narrow

For those who love money, the way to the Father is narrow. "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God" ~ Matthew 19:24.
"...the one who received one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground, and buried his master's money" ~ Matthew 25:18. 

Many people interpret the first above scripture as being about greed and the second being about how man can waste what he has, his talents, time, and even money by not investing it, by not doing something with it to make more money. Both are to tell us that the love of money is wrong. Because, the love of money finds one lusting after it and hoarding it. Money is the root of all evil  ~ 1 Timothy 6:10 as we can also recognize that money enslaves; people end up wasting their life by not only not sharing their prosperity but also by not sharing of themselves.

Many people have to hang on to what they have as if it is all the money/clothes/furniture/property and or gold in the world. They live like paupers or in the least as if they have only meager means. They welcome and accept gifts from other people whose sympathy they play on. When it be made known that they actually have wealth and are asked to give or share, they say it would cost too much as their money is in tied up in certain places and or investment accounts. 

Charles Dickens wrote a play called the "Christmas Carole". It was about a man who had exactly the kind of problem mentioned above. He loved money so much, he could not part with it, he lived as though he had none, he lived a dark and lonely life until he met with the Spirit that is Jesus Christ. 

We look around and wonder why some have and some don't. Most of the haves just won't part with what they have. "When I saw in the plunder a beautiful robe from Babylonia, two hundred shekels of silver and a bar of gold weighing fifty shekels, I coveted them and took them. They are hidden in the ground inside my tent, with the silver underneath" ~ Joshua 7:21.

As we read in Joshua, there were men of old that also figured what they fought for or found was rightly theirs. Men of today say the same things. "I worked hard for it, I saved, they made the right decisions, I was thrifty, I was without, I spent only what was necessary or what I deemed necessary. 

People do hoard even today and not just 'wealth' as in money but other things as well: property, investments, goods/services and even ideas, etc. What if they shared, what if they gave, what if they lived to help who was someone down and out, someone who was not so wise, someone who made bad decisions, someone who could not come up with great ideas? What then? Is this about socialism? In a way it is. The kind that should exist between people at the grass roots and not top down mandate by some government. It should be our choice to use our money wisely for the good of others which is for our own good. 

"But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs" 1 Timothy 9-10.

Jesus Christ is the Light of the World!

When a man/woman is born again in Jesus Christ, pursuing the flesh is no longer desired. There can be no argument against a fleshly person for they are not yet born again, for they are in darkness. Arguing with them about their sin means that you yourself are still in the flesh, and still in darkness.

A born again Christian has open arms to receive such persons in hopes of (if you are born again, their sin could not touch you...make you unclean) bringing them into the Light, closer to Jesus Christ. How? By preaching to them the Gospel - the Word of God. Jesus came for sinners to show Satan who is in this world that only God can redeem sinners and upon receiving His redemption one is born again and understands and embraces what Jesus said "Go and sin no more". In this command, we are made a new creation in Christ, we have been renewed, given the inner strength to overcome sin and to walk upright in the Light. If you are born again, then you have been commanded to preach the Gospel for many are yet unborn.

What does it mean to pursue the sins of the flesh: physical, material and intellectual and all worldly things? It means to live in the flesh, desire the flesh, lust after it love it and hate it. Yes, it is the pursuit of the flesh that drives hate and grows up the darkness... people divorce hating their ex-spouse (pursuit of the flesh) people want to attack or punish others hating them for appearing to be happier or somehow better/well off, hating those that seem smarter or wiser, or appear better looking or belong to a group with the right label and so people are unhappy because they see themselves ugly, useless, sick, aging, outcast, (unhappy people as well as happy people are in pursuit of the flesh - Jesus promises only joy and peace). 

Haters are people who live in the darkness of the flesh and worldly things. They go after others' sin- flesh like vultures, in the news media, in television shows, in public spaces and now in places of worship. They are people who want more money for the job they do or are driven to climb the ladder of success at others expense (pursuit of the flesh); they are people who want bigger houses and newer cars and nicer clothes, and even better health care (pursuit of the flesh) people who strive for credentials and positions of power (pursuit of the flesh)... all this drives hate. Jesus Christ is not the hater - those in flesh are and there are many. If Jesus hates anything at all it is the sin of the flesh, He said, "Go and sin no more!" ~John 8:11

Jesus Christ is the Light of the World! In Him there is no darkness!

All that is needed is to be Made Alive in Christ!

Paul's Ministry was about preaching the gospel. He never came with flattering speech nor pretext for greed. Nor did he seek glory from men ~ 1 Thessalonians 2: 5-6....Paul said "See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form and in Him you have been made complete and He is the head over all rule and authority" ~ Colossians 2:8-10.

What does it mean to be made complete in Him and alive in Christ? "You were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived n the the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ and raised us up with Him" ~ Ephesians 2: 2-6. In being made alive in Christ, we do not pursue the flesh: physical or material or intellectual. We are called to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation" ~ Mark 16.

The Man-Made Church and Who is the Harlot?

What is the man made church? Did Christ die to have men start a church organization? Do we need a man made institution called 'church' would be the better question. The answer is no. Christ delivered us from the law of sin and death ~ Romans 8:2. His body is the true church. Yes, we do need to congregate (come together in worship) in His name for Jesus Christ is the true church, His body is the only True Church which we as Christians belong. We know this from the first congregation of apostles after Christ's death which was and is called Pentecost. Hence, the Pentecostal movement of Christianity derives its name from this New Testament event, as the movement emphasizes direct personal experience with God, akin to the Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles.

Christ died to redeem us from the law of sin and death; in fact, He came to deliver us from institutionalized religion based on legalism and ritual. He did not come to create a new and or better institution called - church. That is man's way of doing things in this fallen world. If that were true, then why did Christ have to come at all and tell us that the Kingdom is within, let alone die for our sin? Because, we cannot keep the law.

This is a fallen world; and yet now, because of His sacrifice on the cross, there is eternal hope because He is our eternal hope and that we all have access to and can choose to embrace. Our hope is in the Lord Jesus Christ and His return. Until, then we should go about our lives walking by faith and not by sight ...making the Jews jealous (Romans 11:11) in order to show them that in Him we live and breathe. "For in Him we live and move and have our being" ~ Acts 17:28.We no longer live under the law of sin and death but that we live by His bread alone. Jesus guided and guides us to move beyond what man in this fallen world deems to be the right way to the Father.

No one enters the Kingdom except by Him.  Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" ~ John 14:6. Jesus Christ is our high priest, the curtain was torn. "And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split" ~ Matthew 27:50-51.

Go, walk with the Lord, for you/we are resurrected in Christ. There is no 'church' other than His body which we are all part of by His Mercy and Grace.

Does that mean we should not join any kind of 'church' as in man made organization? If you understand that the organization is just a place to meet as in congregate in the name of Jesus Christ to fellowship and to worship Him, then there is no harm. People are social creatures, we were created to be social. For He himself is such being three in one. But, we must not treat any man made organization as the true body of Christ, we are the True Body of Christ... where two or more are gathered, there I am.

"Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. "For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst"~ Matthew 18: 19-20

*From reading the Bible, we understand that the Harlot represents backsliden Christian churches - The Harlot Church System. "There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries" ~ Revelations 17.

What does that mean? The Harlot Church System as backslidden? It means that people who call themselves Christians attending 'Christian' churches have forgotten that this is a fallen world and that there is no other way to the Father except by Jesus Christ. That every man and woman is a sinner in need of Jesus Christ. These 'Christians' are engaged in works of 'oneness' and works of the flesh= the idea that man has to do something and glorify that which he does' not in the name of Jesus but in his own eyes Isaiah 5:21.

“The trumpet of the Lord is sounding an alarm to God's holy remnant to come out of her My people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” ~ Revelation 18:4

The true church is the body of Christ. "For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst"~ Matthew 18: 19-20. "And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are Christ's body, and individually members of it" ~1 COR 12:26-27. " in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others" ~ Romans 12:5.

A Study in the Word ~ The Kingdom of God is within you!

There are many who misunderstand what the Kingdom of God is. They live in the flesh. They think that God controls us. We are God's beloved, not pawns to be used. The Kingdom is within ~ Luke 17:21; and we know that we are the branches ~ John 15:5. We walk by faith and not by sight ~ 2 COR 5:7. "This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit" ~ 1 John 4:13. One knows when one is born of the Spirit, one discovers and embraces the Kingdom within.

In Galatians 5:16-18, we read ... " walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. Many read this and they are taken aback. They suddenly feel like pawns and not as Christians ready to move out in the name of the Lord.

For this reason, a study in the Word is necessary. And, if one is just born again, it can be difficult to understand what it means to live in the flesh and not in the Spirit. Especially, when we read the same verse in the ISV, NET, NIV,NLT or ESV, we read different wordage.  

International Standard Version
For what the flesh wants is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit wants is opposed to the flesh. They are opposed to each other, and so you do not do what you want to do.

NET Bible
For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to each other, so that you cannot do what you want.

New International Version
For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.

 New Living Translation
The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.

English Standard Version
For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.

When you are born again, born of the Spirit, you never want to do what you hate. You want to do what you want and that is what He wants. Most people read the Bible in the flesh and not in the Spirit. The last two are written in the Spirit. How? Because, they recognize that once born again one is born of the Spirit, and one who is born of the Spirit is of Christ and is guided by His Light and not the flesh. 

Yet, some are still hindered by the flesh which is always in conflict with the Spirit in this fallen world. Because of that, they are hindered in their ability to carry out their Spirit filled intentions, they are kept from doing the Spirit filled things they want to do. They are kept in place by people/things of the flesh: by fear, doubt, material things, comfort of place, and even to include family.

Paul immediately proclaimed Jesus as the Christ, but was met with hesitation in Damascus and he nearly escaped death. In Galatians we read how three years after his conversion he went to Jerusalem... not knowing what he would meet there. In Romans specifically, we read that Paul struggled with those two forces (Spirit/flesh) and that he found himself doing what he hated and not what he wanted to do.

What did he want to do? He wanted to spread the Gospel but he stayed put for very long time. When he finally moved out from his staying put, he was doing what he was called to do in the Spirit, what he wanted to do - spread the Word, the Good News!

He was resurrected in Christ, he walked by faith and not by sight. He embraced the Kingdom within him. 
Too many will still interpret Galatians in the flesh. They will continue to do what they hate and not what they want to do. They will continue to cling, to be afraid, and to stay put... 

In the Old Testament context Paul would have had to wait to be directed and work according to the Jewish law. When we read about Paul and his conversion, waiting was nothing he wanted to do. Paul was not directed as man thinks of it. He was  resurrected in the Spirit in the body of Christ. He immediately went out to preach the Good News!

He is the vine, we are the branches! ...Walk by the Spirit, and You will Not Carry out the Desire of the Flesh!" ~ Galatians 5:16.

Resurrected and Living in the Lord!

What does it mean to walk by faith and not by sight. It means to be resurrected and living in the Lord Jesus Christ. It means that you no longer live in the flesh, you no longer pursue the flesh... you follow Him. Does that mean you stand around waiting to be directed, listening for a direct as in specific word? No, we are under a new covenant, when we need a word, we seek His word. Remember, being born again, we live under a new covenant in Jesus Christ... we walk by faith.

Being born again, we no longer live in the flesh and live in the Spirit. Therefore, wherever you/we go and whatever you/we do is with and for Him. Remember, this is a fallen world, there is no designed path (as in the right road as man would think it) here and now, there is no one way that a 'man/woman' can do if we alone know His supreme will here and now for us in this fallen world. But, born again, there is in us the desire to do His will. Thus, there is every way to do His will when you live for and in the Lord. The Kingdom is within! ..."Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you - American Standard" ~ Luke 17:21.

Yet, some still ask "What do we do living in the Lord Jesus Christ"? We rest in His Presence. Because, He is enough! By resting in Him, we don't pursue our own desires... saying, "I did it/ We did it, I/we made the right decision." By resting in the Lord, we give all Glory and Honor to Him for all that we do, for all that we are and all we have no matter where we are/go and who we meet and what we do. Of course, one can hear the comments... "Oh, does that mean if I steal or hurt someone, I am doing His will". No, remember that by resting in Him, we do not pursue our own desires, we do not pursue sin. It may happen that we do sin, but we do not seek it.

"All things are permissible, but not all things are beneficial" ~ 1COR 10:23.

What is His will for me/us? To rest in Him, to keep Him in one's heart, mind and soul. to seek His Word, to share His Word wherever, and with whoever wants to share in it.

He asks us to forgive those who come against us for resting in Him. For they know not what they do. Those people seek the world in their terms and in their way without resting in Him, without giving thanks and praise. And, there are those that think they do rest in Him by sitting at home or staying comfortably where they are waiting for direction, waiting for that special assignment. They don't realize that there is always a special assignment, there is always the best route in life because resting in Him is the best route. Because, His route for you/us is wherever we/you go and whatever you do when we/you live in the Lord Jesus Christ, it is His will that is done.

That is how/why He is the vine and we are the branches. "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned" ~ John 15:4-6.

In this way, being the branches, we understand His will. Its a quantum application that only God can work in this corrupt world.

Remember, this is a fallen world. Yes, God has direction/plans for this fallen world and that is its destruction, its end. So that, He can bring the New Jerusalem. In this fallen world, there is no reason for specific direction whereby one must seek specific direction as to what we should do. If it were otherwise, waiting for His command as to what we should do, would not achieve His will being done through. Some can be instruments of the Holy Spirit given a dream or Word. 

What all are asked to do is to seek, and find ~ Matthew 7:7. We must step out in faith having the Kingdom within. The one absolute command God gave us was the a command - to Love Him with all our heart, soul and mind, and, to love our neighbor, do this and you will live ~ Luke 10:27. The command was not  "stay put until I tell you"! A command like that is not of God. We are His beloved, not His pawns.

If we as born again in Christ expected that kind of command, we would stagnate the spreading of the Gospel and His desired end of this fallen world and thus promote another kind of world that of doubt and fear filled people procrastinating in darkness. Hence, being born again we function in the light as His branches as would a super quantum computer where there is one truth and it is everywhere! We do not have to wait for specific direction, he has given us the freedom to embrace the Kingdom within and walk with it! 

...walk by faith and not by sight ~ 2 COR 5:7
