"God has made everything fit beautifully in its' appropriate time, but He has also placed ignorance in the human heart so that people cannot discover what God has ordained, from the beginning to the end of their lives." Eccl. 3:11 NET
God has placed filters to prevent man in his carnal state from understanding the knowledge of the holy. 1Cor. 2:21, "for in the wisdom of God the world by (it's') wisdom knew not God." In other words, God has set parameters to prevent man from having a true understanding of God without the revelation of the Holy Spirit. God has set parameters for the carnal mind to function in, being unable to tap into the mystery of God. But He has allowed you to break through His parameters through the power of a transformed mind. (Rom. 12:1,2). God is seeing if you are willing to break out of guidelines that are only meant to prevent carnal men from knowing Him. From the beginning He has done this, beginning with Adam, by placing a Cherub at the entrance of the garden to prevent Adam from having access to the tree of life. (Gen. 3:24). But we have access to the tree of life through Jesus Christ. But we are still choosing the tree of knowledge of good and evil over the tree of life. And here comes the indictment, " For the world by wisdom knew not God." 1 Cor. 1:21. The Lord has set parameters to keep unbelief from laying ahold of the things of God. Then He watches to see if you have enough faith to break away from those religious restraints of unbelief. Are you going to follow the masses down a religious path of unbelief beneath grey overcast skies? Or are you going to break rank, with rank and file Christianity, and jump the fence of unbelief and begin to play in the fields of the Lord beneath the rainbow of God? Are you going to walk in the place of lack or the place of plenty? It's time to break out of meager existence and jump fence and lay down in green pastures.
May God keep you and cause His face to shine upon you.
