In Plain Sight or The Mountain Height?

1 Jun

by J. Solomon, guest writer

We should all walk on this temporary human journey in a spiritual way, hoping one day to get our paths right unto Godliness and Goodness towards God and to mankind. But most people are walking only as a human in a human way, a “one way traffic” bound situation, believing they are “only human after all”, not minding the spiritual consequences of their actions while recycling the same bad habits of their evil “self” (Romans 6:18, Romans 8:5-8, John 3:3-7, 1 Corinthians 2:14-15, Galatians 5:24-26).

Hence the question: are you walking “in plain, Earthly sight” or in “the Heavenly Mountain height”?

In other words, are you walking on the Earthly plane, “in/with (human) sight”, shuffling daily between your human abode and place of work, viewing the world through human eyes that are incessantly fixed on the horizon of human desire? Are you one who is hoping to fit in with the crowd (Revelation 14:1-3), distracted from doing what is right by what is popular instead? And doesn’t this make the struggle doubly difficult, leaving you with no other option than to either get on the competition bandwagon, fighting your way to “the top”, in a “survival of the fittest” dog-eat-dog world, as described in TWHOFTF 3:10-26, or get off the not-so-merry-go-round and learn to truly “think outside the box”?

Walking in the ways of the world is like the donkey following the carrot dangling in front of it. You see only what is in front of you, never grasping the “bigger picture” that there is more to this existence here on Earth than temporary worldly wealth, power, fame and fortune, all of which are fleeting. And in a world that is led by human emotion instead of reason and common sense, it becomes a roller-coaster ride with one day a seeming triumph when you get your own, selfish way and the next seeming to be an emotional disaster when you don’t. Why do you think most people today feel life is hopeless and without purpose?

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because Thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, thou shalt not be a priest unto me, seeing thou hast forgotten the Law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Why would anyone wish to wade through the filth and scum of human existence here on Earth, always looking downward, when there are so much better views from a higher vantage point? We cannot continue to eat dust here on Earth with Satan (Revelation 12:9) and live a clean, holy life (Isaiah 55:9).

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out unto the Earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Genesis 3:14 And The LORD God saith unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.

What if you could change your vantage point, and soar on “the wings of eagles” (Isaiah 40:31) to new mountain heights? Wouldn’t that be a journey worth taking?

The high road is the one less travelled (Matthew 7:13-14), so it’s often a seemingly lonely climb, as there are precious few who are like-minded, or want to live like Jesus did (Matthew 15:1-14, Mark 3:31-35), But the mountain view is liberating, offering a perspective of the sea of restless people(Isaiah 17:12-13) that isn’t possible any other way, free from the confusion of being part of the crowd.

And because it’s the narrow way that very few will find, there’s no crowd to rush you or step on your toes, or your head as you climb the ladder, but be careful not to step on a snake (Matthew 6:33-34, Sura 63).

From that mountain height, you’ll have a much clearer picture of what lies ahead, including the rush, pitfalls, struggles and hassles of life. And that new perspective will help you understand The Way YOU need to walk, and what you need to be doing at any given moment, to do what is best for everyone concerned, while avoiding any impending danger that might lay ahead (Matthew 7:13-14, John 14:6-7).

You’ll also have a better understanding of the errors and direction the crowd/sea is moving in, to know when they’re moving in the right direction, and when they’re moving in the wrong direction. Wouldn’t you rather see the world as it really is, from mountain heights, rather than continue to struggle through the earthly plane, enslaved to the compulsory movement of the crowd? The evil majority on this planet is almost always wrong (Exodus 23:2), deceived by what they believe they see with their human eyes, which frequently isn’t the truth of things. Why not turn to the mountain, for relief from the toxic environment and endless human struggles, so you can find fresher air and a view with mind re-activating scenery and rest for the weary soul?

Matthew 11:28-30

11:28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
11:30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

NB: verse 29, which indicates that climbing the great Mountain is only for those willing to learn meekness and humility. There is no place along The Way home for the arrogant or the anxious, who quickly lose their footing on such a narrow, upward climb (Philippians 4:6-8). Do not confuse meekness with weakness, as most people do.

So where is this great “mountain” that will fill the whole Earth you may ask? Has Father not revealed this mystery to those spiritually reborn babes (1 Corinthians 3:1)?

Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

Daniel 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the “Stone” that smote the image became a great “mountain”, and filled the whole Earth.

And what “Stone” is going to become a great “mountain” that fills the whole Earth?

Psalm 118:22 The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner (Genesis 49:24, Matthew 21:42).

Ephesians 2:19-20

2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the holy people, and of the household of God;
2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the Chief Corner-[Stone]; (Ezekiel 21:26-27, Luke 1:32).

Christ clearly is the Chief Corner-STONE, the Rock (Truth) upon which the “Mountain” is built, to which the spiritually-minded will flow (Isaiah 2:2, Micah 4:1). He will magnify The Law and make it honourable (Isaiah 42:21, Deut. 33:21). He will rule with a rod of iron (Psalm 2:8-9, Revelation 2:27, Revelation 12:5). And Christ is the Bread of Life (John 6:35, John 6:48-51) and the one and only Vine supplying us with the Life-Giving energy we need.

John 15:5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Why would anyone wish to continue to build on the sinking sand of this desert planet, which hasn’t received one drop of spiritual rain for the past 1260 years (Revelation 11:6) instead of building on the Rock that will NEVER fail? Aren’t you ready to climb the mountain, sure of your balance and footing, and sure of the rest and spiritual enlightenment you will find there?

The Way home

Your Daily Lesson

We are told in Scripture that we should be searching for Christ, and that He would be here in a new body, with a NEW NAME (Genesis 49:22-26, Jeremiah 29:13, Matthew 7:7-8, Revelation 2:17, 3:12, and 19:12).

Revelation 19:12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a NAME written, that NO man knew, but HE himself (ch. 2:17; 3:12).

Christ told us what the world would be like during these end-times, when He promised to return, at a time when no one would be looking for Him (Matthew 24:21-39, Luke 17:20-30, Luke 12:40, 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4, 2 Peter 3:10).

CHRIST ALSO SAID HE WOULD REVEAL THE TRUTH OF THE FATHER TO US (John 16:25, Rev. 10:7-10), which is the only miracle anyone should need at this late hour to recognize our Saviour, Lord and King.

The Truth is this: The Second Coming of Christ is happening NOW (Genesis 49:10, 22:24), so if you want to be rescued from the forthcoming destruction awaiting most of the Earth’s population on the Last Day (Malachi 4), you will need to begin your spiritual climb as soon as possible. A spiritual climb that will take you one step closer to knowing The Most High Father and His Son (John 17:3).
