The Nature of My Calling
A Prophecy to the Inner Man
February 18, 1988
My true call to My People is to Myself over their basic (inward) desires and weaknesses of heart. This is the premier, most basic of all the alternating currents over which I perfect My people. I call them to Myself over [what I have planted into them] as inward creatures. From there I alternate them with my wisdom which I grant to them as they faithfully pursue Me over [my inner plantings].
(Next) My wisdom to them and their pursuit of Me alternates with their exposure to the outer world (off which their wisdom is reflected). This exposure carries with it their alternating between their exposure—involvement with My People at large, and their isolation—coming apart from My People.
These exposures (alternating) to the outer realm are not the essence of My call to My People. But rather, these exposures are involvement shelters in the midst of which My People find themselves at the time I call them and are for their nurturing until their exercise of their true inward call is able to give birth by faith to their manifestation of the fulfilment of their call outwardly (at which point they can be said to be fulfilling their call outwardly—for it is in direct sync with My inward call, yea, the issues I have planted in them inwardly).
But not until their outward existence is in direct fulfilment of their inward call to Me over their issues can they be said to be fulfilling their call in anything but inward terms—for indeed, the Root and Essence of My call is inward. All their exposures to the outward realm are involvement shelters until the time that I may fulfil their inward issues outwardly.
This is to say therefore that I do not call My People to be doctors and lawyers and vocationists with respect to the occupations of the world. These are only “calls” to the degree their involvement coincides with the fulfilment of My inward issues within them. But by and large for the most part these are but involvement shelters until my true call can be fulfilled through them. (My true call is through the door of personal desire and weakness—not idea.)
Not even “ministry” so called as it appears is My call unless it is in direct fulfilment of the inward issues of My People over their pursuit of Me. For most of My People, most “ministry” is pure involvement shelter. Very few of My People are there indeed who are walking in “ministry” that reflects My inward call to them. (It is for this cause that the ministry is highly blasphemed—because of the discrepancy between the activity and reflection of My personality—for ministry itself by name presumes reflection of my Personality—yet that reflection only comes and is developed in response to My true call over inward issues.
All activity that is in fulfilment of My true call over inward issues is true ministry, whether or not it be recognized as ministry [true call and true ministry are inseparably one and the same—though “ministry” tends to refer to true call as it finds its fulfilment in outward exposure].
And all “ministry” which is not in fulfilment of My true call over inward issues in not true ministry, though it be called such. It is vain religion [albeit it may be a legitimate temporary involvement shelter through ignorance. The question is, How much is fulfilment of one’s inward issues over which He has pursued God? This is the measure of true ministry]).
Say not therefore “The Lord called me to do this or be that.” If you have not pursued Me over your inward issues, and if what you are doing is not My fulfilment of those issues, then I have not called you to whatever you are doing. Whatever it is you are doing is an involvement shelter until I set you free into the liberty of your true calling. But and if you are not even seeking me over your issues, then whatever you are doing is an abomination to Me. And woe be to you if, in that state, what you are doing is called “ministry” and is done in My Name.
