The Wisdom I Give You
A Prophecy to the Inner Man
February 17, 1988
The wisdom I give you is derived directly from your inward encounter with Me, but is deflected off your exposure to the outward realm whence it is given its image as displayed/surfaced on the screen of your mind. (This is as it is with satellite transmissions.) From there it is displayed through you—your pen, your mouth—back into the outward realm.
Your wisdom is the direct result of your spiritual pursuit of Me over your inward kingdom. This is why your pursuit over your inward kingdom is so vital. This is where your positive Life-essence dwells. That Essence is not in your wisdom. Your wisdom is a byproduct derived from your pursuit of the Essence.
For this [cause], your wisdom itself has held its own peculiar potential to take you from Me. But your wisdom is not self-sustaining. This is why from the time it was released to you when you first encountered My Essence within you, you had to struggle with not being carried away or enamoured of it. You could not feed on it—for it is not derivatory in nature, but emmanative.
When I challenged you to leave off your quest of My Voice to rest in me again, it was because your wisdom had subtly displaced Me in your affection. You had begun to feed on it instead of Me. But your wisdom is a gift resulting from your faithful pursuit of Me—inward. To turn to seek it was as to kill the goose that lays the golden egg.
For this I have had to negotiate your development over your possession of my wisdom very carefully—severing you from it when it has threatened to distract you from your Pursuit of Me. But My wisdom I have given you to understand the natures of and relationship of the outer realm (of consciousness) to the inner realm.
Your wisdom spans the gap between your existence in these two realms—for it is derived directly only from your internal encounter with Me, but is only given voice and display through its reflection off your exposure to the outer realm (That is why you find your wisdom quickened to expression after you read a certain article or hear a certain word. Yet it was born only because of your abidance in Me without your direct attention to the thing you encountered outwardly—or to the wisdom itself).
Your wisdom is the direct display of My Kingdom through you. It is the measured blessing of how much you have sacrificed your attention to your external consciousness to seek Me inwardly over My Kingdom issues within you.
You see now why I have perpetually called you to Myself over your issues (You have learned that you could not come to Me without coming over Your issues). But your wisdom only came as a byproduct of your approach to Me over your Issues. (Therefore, when you turned to the wisdom itself, you short-circuited its display.)
Again I say to you and now give you My wisdom to the measure of your capacity—you see why I have perpetually called you to Myself over your Issues. You see also why my visible People have failed and what is the source point of their failure. You see why My People are given over to extreme delusion and fascination with media that appeals to external consciousness. It is because they have failed to sacrifice their external consciousness to bore into Me inwardly. It is because they have short-circuited their inward quest of Me over the issues to follow both the blessings and wisdom that have returned to them for having begun to seek Me.
So you see this? When my people turn to worship the wisdom beginningly resultant from their quest of me—they create doctrines of demons. If you will notice, all the great doctrines of strife and tangential error have as their root wisdom that was initially released due to faithfulness to pursue Me inwardly.
The same is true of my blessings (—in the earth). These result from the sacrifice of the external devotion to them. But when my people turn to them, this gives birth to idolatry. Religious idolatry and actual heresy are but branches of worship of blessing resultant from the self-denying pursuit of Me over internal issues, the one being material, the other pertaining to the understanding.
What My People Visible do not (tend not) to realize is that all my blessings to them—material and of understanding—have come not because of their pursuit of them and to preserve them, but in spite of them. Rather they have come because of those who have given them up. It is because of those within My Church who have hidden themselves from direct involvement with my blessings to seek me over their issues that I have poured out My blessings on the church.
The outpourings of My blessings on my People as a whole are not to the credit of those who sought these blessings, but of those hidden ones who have cumulatively sought Me over the centuries. The Reformation came not to men who sought Reformation—but who sought Me—even though those who joined later to seek the Reformation for its own sake and to preserve it are those who are responsible for its demise.
This is the same with all my revivals and restorations. Think not that these have come because men sought them, but because of My hidden ones who sought Me and because of whom I blessed all—yea, even brought My blessing to the many before I brought it to my hidden ones on whose account it came. But yea, those who partook of the blessings without the death, these are they who worshipped them and on whose account they were corrupted and counterfeited.
(Do you know why you have the wisdom you do? It is because you come at the end of a long line of My hidden ones who have faithfully followed Me, because of whom I was able to bring My succeeding restorations—and because you too have followed Me and not any of the restorations, I have given you not only to see the patterns of reality over these things, but it shall be because of you and those like you that I bring to pass My next great outpourings of blessing to all my Church in line for the inheriting of My Kingdom. Therefore wonder not why you have had to wait so long for the receiving of your personal blessing in fulfilment of your Issues.)
[Feb. 18-In the same way that religious idolatry and heresy are counterfeits of two branches of my singular blessing—the one earthly (material), the other of understanding—so I give you to see that throughout your life, I have not withheld my complete blessing from you—but only one branch of it. For it is in the withholding of my material blessing from you all these years that I have been able to bless you of My wisdom. These two (too) operate according to the reality of alternating spiritual current of which I have already taught you. The one serves to charge oppositely of the other. The one finds its fullness of expression through the withholding of the other. My wisdom blessing has found its expression through you because of the withholding of the material blessing. The blessing of that which is derived from within has been at the expense of that which is accrued from without.
This too is not only a reality from within you, but also within your relationship to the Body. I have set you as a minister of wisdom among those to whom I have richly displayed my material blessing—to balance against their charge—through your deprivation of my material blessing. But think not (as you have wondered) that I have withheld your material blessing (over your Issues) forever. For your time shall come, after that I have fully established your wisdom, then I shall establish your blessing relative to your inward issues.
I shall balance you out in this way. How could I do otherwise to bring you to perfection (ie, completion of your [balanced] circle)? But the wisdom had to come first—and then the material blessing. But it is not to say that I have not blessed you at all—for your wisdom has been equal blessing of My nature as the material blessing withheld. Yes, the wisdom has been foundational and for it there has been no substitute. It is at the root of your essence as a hidden person among my visible people. For in their visibility, they have not found my wisdom—and for this, they have gone a whoring after My material blessings—which you shall not—and for which purpose to warn and prevent I have set you against them in the Body—that they may learn of you (to re-lay their foundations) even as I have given you hope of encouragement through them for the receiving of your material blessings as I blessed them (yea—blessed them even because of your hidden faithfulness to deny yourself, and not because of their quest to seek my material blessings).
But this is so that you should know that my blessings are of two dimensions, yea two branches of one stock—which balance against the other—and that to have deprived you of the one has only been to have of necessity establish you in the other (the more foundational) that I might in turn build unto you the other in completion of your perfection before Me.
As your wisdom has been dependent upon your pursuit of Me over your issues, even so the fulfilment of your issues has been dependent on the completion of your wisdom. These are the realities over which your heart has secretly, vaguely pondered many years, and I reveal to you now. Amen]
But I return to say—consider America—this great nation of which you hear much—On whose account was America blessed and been preserved? Was it those who sought a blessing for America—and is it now those who seek to preserve it? Yea, I say unto you—it was not and has not been because of these—but in spite of them. Rather it was and is because of those like you who have sojourned through her midst, uninterested in acquiring her blessings, but interested in acquiring My Blessing over your issues—over My challenges to your inward Life.
And now behold, because you have been preserved in her context—and at the end of all her cumulative revelation have not turned to worship her nor her revelation—I have been able to save you for that which is next, that which none before you in your time has been able to enter—yea, and for all those with you. But I say, it comes at once with the cumulation of all idolatry among this people—those who have worshipped her blessings, and who now worship her revelation given for your sakes—
Behold the sudden destruction of all idolaters is before Me. The America worshippers, the revelation worshippers—yea all who have failed to leave their external consciousness to seek Me over their true Kingdom—these—this body—I have destined for sudden destruction. Yea, the time is at hand. But of some O son of man, have compassion, making a difference. For there are yet those young and tender before Me whom I have sheltered within the ranks of that which is evil—even as I once sheltered and nurtured you.
Despise not, therefore, all men. But learn and listen to all men and to every Body to which I send you. Nurture toward Me all who show tenderness toward Me. Nurture them away from their outer world to pursue Me over their inner world that I may bring all blessing to all the world. Warn those who seek to preserve the blessings foregoing, lest they perish when I destroy the idolaters from your midst.
For many seek to preserve blessings ignorantly (as you once did)—and many seek to preserve blessings out of disobedience. For they have refused to enter into Me through the door of their intimate desires and the confession of their weaknesses. They have refused to let me build their true Kingdom from within. They have chosen conformity to the world of material blessings, theological idea, and false atmospheres of soul intrinsic to the world. They have given themselves over to the worship of mental and technological imagery.
Therefore have I delivered them over to the delusion of their own making. But thou, O man of God, be not deceived—turn not to the right hand nor to the left from the course to which I have assigned Thee and which belongs not to another. Pursue me. Pursue me over all that is within you (—bless My holy name) that I may truly bring my kingdom to pass in earth, as it is in the heaven of My Presence planted within you. Grow, my son. Grow on—that I may harvest you at the appropriate time.
