My Utmost For His Highest : "Clouds And Darkness"


January 3, 2012


Clouds and darkness are round about Him.

Psalms 97:2

A man who has not been born of the Spirit of God Will tell you that
the teachings of Jesus are simple. But when you are baptized with the
Holy Ghost, you find "clouds and darkness are round about Him." When
we come into close contact with the teachings of Jesus Christ we have
our first insight into this aspect of things. The only possibility of
understanding the teaching of Jesus is by the light of the Spirit of
God on the inside. If we have never had the experience of taking our
commonplace religious shoes off our commonplace religious feet, and
getting rid of all the undue familiarity with which we approach God,
it is questionable whether we have ever stood in His presence. The
people who are flippant and familiar are those who have never yet
been introduced to Jesus Christ. After the amazing delight and
liberty of realizing what Jesus Christ does, comes the impenetrable
darkness of realizing Who He is.

Jesus said: "The words that I speak unto you," not the words I have
spoken, "they are spirit, and they are life." The Bible has been so
many words to us - clouds and darkness - then all of a sudden the
words become spirit and life because Jesus re-speaks them to us in a
particular condition. That is the way God speaks to us, not by
visions and dreams, but by words. When a man gets to God it is by the
most simple way of words.
