“…and always remember this, friends, the way up is down” - William Branham
Ah! I cannot help but feel rather inadequate every time I reminisce about those words. Those words only serve to reinforce the fact that William Branham was a mighty man of God.
But, jumping back on track here, I want to show you some things that the Lord revealed to me through this quote.
As I lay in my bed waiting for my conscious mind to stop working for the day (basically, to fall sleep ), The Lord revealed to me that “not all things go up when they fall down”
“How Lord?”, I inquired.
See this is what the Lord revealed to me:
“Unless the thing/person going down has life it will never go up”, explained The Holy Spirit
Imagine you drop a tennis ball from the terrace of a 30-storey building, it will surely reach the ground in some time but see it doesn’t have life inside it. No part of the tennis ball will go back up
But now, imagine a human in the same place. If a human falls to the ground from the top of a 30-storey building, when they reach the ground, their body surely won’t bounce back up, but there is a part in every human that will surely go up – the Soul
I’m sure you agree
So, what I’m trying to get at is this: From both the instances we conclude that unless you have life within you, you will never go up
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life - John 14:6 KJV
If you don’t have the life within you, there’s no point humbling yourself. There’s no point.
If you go down without first having the life inside you, it’s pointless because you won’t rise up
See the bible tells us that we need to die daily (1 Corinthians 15:31). If you are dying daily but without the life of God within you, you are really only dying in vain. Why? Because you’re like a tennis ball – lifeless. There’s no part of you that can go up
If you’re dying daily but
It is all in vain, brother/sister. You may be Christian, you might speak in tongues also but can still not have the Holy Spirit.
Examine yourself today. Look inside to see if you are lifeless. May the Lord fill you today with Himself. God bless you! Shalom.
