Can you see the Pillar of cloud?
Deuteronomy 31:6 - Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
If one does really understand the Bible the most important events in our journey of life are written at least thrice in the Bible.
When the Lord started unfolding the scriptures to me I was amazed to find the journey which the Israelites took in the books of Moses is a shadow of the spiritual journey all mankind is taking. Even the names of people and places were of great importance in our understanding and discerning this life.
Another interesting thing was, in events that unfolded before them it was the Son of God and the Holy Spirit who were involved and are involved with us also alike. It was the Holy Spirit who walked before them in the form of a pillar of cloud or fire and it was the Son of God whose Angel was always around then.
If we really open our spiritual eyes then that very Pillar of cloud will be there before us to lead us like He lead the Israelites. When the Pillar of cloud appeared before them they followed, and when the Pillar of cloud was not seen, they settled down in their tents.
Throughout their journey the Holy Spirit played an important role (no only leading them as a Pillar of cloud). It is after we are baptized in the Holy Spirit are we in a position to see this great manifestation of Pillar of cloud before us in our lives.
Most of our messages were directly of indirectly connected to being led by the Holy Spirit came after the 16th October mail of baptism of water. I have seen Churches giving great importance to water baptism. For instance I visited a Church and before the service a person came to me and asked me if I was water baptized. I would love if some one would come to me and also ask me if I was baptized in the Holy Spirit.
All are interested if we have done our booking in Heaven, but are we also interested to find if people are on their journey towards that booked place. We as man can not lead people all the way to that booked place; we can only be instruments for the One who really leads. The lesser the instruments the better for us, since these instruments have a mind of their own also and therefore have a possibility of adding their two bits. Then by experience we learn what came from the Lord and what they added.
Let us start asking ourselves first are we baptized in the Holy Spirit?
And then lets us ask our family members of our own family and the family as a Church if all the members are baptized in the Holy Spirit?
If we find any who are not then those are not going to seen in Heaven.
