Jesus is free with mercy. You don’t have to beg Him.
He’s free with it and He will show you again. Now, you’ve got to be willing because when He does show you,
you don’t want to do it again. You know? Because we don’t have 20 and 30 years to waste going around [with
a beam covering our head]. So, the least bit of willingness will be a wall between you and Him.
There’s something He won’t even talk about because He knows you’re not willing to do it… still. When you
don’t want something to be the Lord, you can play games with it and think, ‘Was that the Lord or is that
just me?’ and try to push it aside and didn’t realize you had done that. And you’re in darkness and
wondering why is this not working.
Your unwillingness in one area can blind you from your Light and direction in another area. Walking
in the Light we have is absolutely vital to understanding in every area. The Bible says if any man wills to do
his will, he will know whether the doctrine is of God; what’s of God and what’s not. The Clarity.
And that’s what we were talking about earlier. Can you picture Jesus any day in His ministry talking to the
disciples and go, ‘Boys, I just don’t know what to do. I’m at a place where I don’t know where to go to
preach. Let me bounce this off of you. Does this doctrine sound right to you? I’m just not sure.’
Yeah, BUT here is the thing:
Jesus operated just like me and you!
The Bible said He laid aside His mighty weight and power and glory. He’s NOT operating in omniscience –
in the all knowing power of God. He had to learn the Scriptures as a child. And yet, the Bible
describes Him operating in a ‘knowing.’ The Bible said He knew their thoughts. He told the disciples,
‘I must go preach in this place today.’ He KNEW this. He knew His time was come. He knew everything had been fulfilled.
He lived EVERYDAY in this ‘knowing.’ What this is is FULL LIGHT. Because to be pondering
and struggling and ‘I just don’t know. I wonder. Do you think that’s alright?’ That’s darkness. It’s darkness.
Because you can’t see it.
You’re not seeing it clearly. And people will think, ‘Oh, Brother Keith that’s Jesus.’
Yes, but He did it as a Man.
And He said, ‘The things I do if you believe on Me, the works you’ll do also.' And if you believe on Him,
you ought to walk just as He walked. He walked in the full Light. Always knowing. Always this confidence
In my own life, I have not walked in the fullness of that Light. But there’s been times I’ve walked in it more
than others. The more I walk close with Him and in fellowship with Him, the Scripture says you have an
anointing of the Holy One, and you know all things. That doesn’t mean we’re omniscient; it just means
that KNOWING that Light is flowing in us and everything we need to know we’re knowing.
