Acts 10:19-20 π Gal. 1:15-16
“But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood.” ( Gal. 1:15-16; top )
If Moses had conferred with flesh and blood, there would have been no exodus. If Noah had conferred with flesh and blood, there would have been no ark. If Peter ( Acts 10:19-20; top ) had conferred with Jerusalem, there would have been no visit to the Gentiles. If the prophet had consulted with flesh and blood, Nineveh would not have been saved. If Joseph had conferred with flesh and blood, Egypt’s famine would never have been overcome. If Jesus had conferred with His disciples and friends, He would have never gone to the Cross.
The profound gravity of the present world, teetering toward annihilation while promoting feeble human panaceas, is vanity of vanities. In our present position, the needs are so enormous and the situations so heavy with complexities that every proposal and power of human thinking and human endeavor is destined to falter and fail.
In Christian circles in the past and present there have been a few totally “dead to the flesh” Christians with Godly wisdom. However, they have too often been bypassed by religious authorities who decided to consult with Christian sources that appealed to the flesh and blood’s lust for recognition and worldly acclaim and human wisdom. God be merciful.
In this end time, what is needed is a corporate body of Josephs, Moseses and Noahs, who refuse to confer with flesh and blood on any level; void of any political, intellectual or organizational program; whose only occupation is loyalty and total obedience to the head of this corporate body, Jesus and the Father. Then the present corrupt and rebellious world will see a true manifestation of Godly wisdom and righteousness, which will be too heavy for most to comprehend, and they will reject it because it didn’t start with flesh and blood (them!).
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
