Sometimes we receive more than what we ask God to give us. For instance, the visions we receive from Him may be extremely troubling. However, if we are God’s prophets then we have to share everything about our visions just like He tells us—even the goriest details.
Like Jude, my heart often desires to write more uplifting articles that depict the wonderful life of believers in Christ, but because there are so many individuals who are turning/falling away from the faith and living selfish, greedy, grouchy, protesting, full of hate lives, I am compelled, like Jude, to warn these people of the growing apostasy in today’s institutional “church.” Also Like Jude, I am compelled to challenge all believers to earnestly contend for the faith.
There are many patterns in the Holy Bible. However, many biblical patterns are not easy to recognize. Only when we are able to see that a spiritual truth stated in one part of the Holy Bible has been repeated in a similar fashion in another portion of the Holy Bible will we not only be able to recognize the process in the biblical pattern but also we will be able to discern what God wants us to learn from that pattern.
