“Left”

14 Aug

“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”  Revelations 3: 6, 13, 22

“Ears to hear” in this case…I believe…means those who are saved…they have “the ears to hear”.  These “hearing” ones must listen…”listen to the Spirit (Holy Ghost) and understand what he is saying….” to the churches (the group of all the believers in Jesus’ death  and resurrection).  In my study bible it says…the “church” will not be here during the tribulation.  That this is indicated by the sequence of events and the time line as given.

I also believe, that “listening and understanding” is an ongoing, everyday thing we must try to do.  It takes practice and it takes perseverance.  The disciples were “given” the understanding.  They had to lead, record, and begin….the faith as we know it.  The Holy Ghost equipped them quickly for the task.  Our jobs, and our faith, receive all that we need as well…but if you have the time to develop, then you must develop.  Much is expected of us…to do ON OUR OWN VOLITION.  The disciples got no more than was necessary and neither will we.  The rest we must find for ourselves.

Those who do not care to take the time, the energy, or the mental adjustment to develop their faith…may most assuredly be “left behind”.
