You did it to the least of these...


 

As I was studying through Revelation 13 this morning I looked up the definition of "blasphemy".  You'll never guess what it means: slander and evil speaking. I have always thought that this was only what was directed specifically to God, but the original term doesn't define it only that way.  The first definition is just slander and evil speaking; the second is directing that slander and evil speaking against God. This is extremely significant to me, particularly in light of Jesus' words:



And the King will make answer and say to them, "Truly I say to you, Because you did it to the least of these my brothers, you did it to me. " Matt 25:40 (BBE)
 

 

I realize that Jesus said those words to the ones who treated others right, but the underlying principle of the parable is that the way we treat/speak of others, we treat/speak of Him.  That is how much He identifies with each one of us, and with each one of those who offend us!

Could this be part of the straight testimony that some will accept and others will reject?

 Listen to this (and insert your location) wherever it says Iowa):
"God wants His people in Iowa to come into order. He wants to do great things for them, and this He will do if they will take a correct position. He wants them to look at their own defects instead of at the defects of some one else. Remember the words of the Saviour when the Pharisees brought to Him a woman taken in adultery. “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone,” He said. [John 8:7.] Then, bending down, He wrote on the ground. As the accusers of the woman pressed forward to see what He wrote, they read the record of their own sins, and one after another, ashamed and confounded, they went away.

Remember the sin in your own heart. Then you will not be so ready to throw stones at some one else. If you hear that someone has done wrong, go to him, and find out whether he is really at fault. Have you done this in the past, or have you said, “Report, and we will report it”? [Jeremiah 20:10.] May the converting power of God come upon His people in Iowa, for they need this power. The work in this State ought to be much farther advanced than it is. Let those who leave their own work undone to criticize the work of another remember that all they say is written in the records of heaven, and that by their words they will be either justified or condemned.

 

Christ is the greatest Missionary the world has ever known. When He was on this earth, He went from city to city, preaching the gospel and healing the sick. When the people of a city urged Him to remain with them, He would answer, I must go to other cities also. He came to our world as the great Restorer. He wants His people to do the work He has left for them. Are those who claim to be laborers together with God working as Christ worked? Are you helping and blessing those around you, or are you criticizing and finding fault? I beg of you for Christ’s sake to banish all criticism from your hearts. Let your words and actions be sanctified by the love of Christ. When you are tempted to think that some one else is doing wrong, ask yourself if all you are doing is right. There is work for the Iowa Conference to do. When they do this work, they will have no time for fault-finding or complaining. Christ said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” [Luke 4:18, 19.]
This is our work. God calls upon His people to be working Christians. ... Shall we not live so that the “Well done” shall be spoken to us? If we expect to sit with the Man of Calvary on His throne, we must here work as He worked. In the name of the Lord I beseech you to humble your hearts before Him. Criticize yourselves, but do not criticize others. Christ wants you to help one another. Open the door of the heart, and let the Saviour in. When He abides in the heart, you will do all in your power to strengthen and encourage those for whom He gave His life. Suppose that Christ were coming today! Are you ready to meet Him? Is your character without spot or wrinkle or any such thing? Could you look up and say, “This is the Lord, we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation”? [Isaiah 25:9.]

May God help and bless and sanctify you. May He cleanse you from all impurity, that you may enter in through the gates into the city. God forbid that any of you should be weighed in the balances and found wanting. God wants His sons and daughters to reveal before the synagogue of Satan, before the heavenly universe, before the world, the power of His grace, that men and angels may know that Christ has not died in vain. Let us show the world that we have power from on high. I beseech you for Christ’s sake to be reconciled to God. Beware lest at the last great day you are found without God and without hope in the world.
It is time that we sought the Lord with the whole heart, that we may find Him. Ask Him to fill your heart with His grace and sweetness. May God help His people to get out of the rut into which they have fallen, and come to the place where they can walk and talk with God. Then, as they reflect the light and joy of heaven, God Himself will rejoice over them with singing.

 

God gave me this message to bear to His people in Iowa. He said to me, “You are to enter into no controversy. Bear the testimony as I give it to you. Do not try to make the people believe it. I have not laid this burden upon you. All you are to do is to deliver the message. I am beside you. I will work with you.”

I have now given you the message in the name of the Lord.  

EGW - Manuscript 38, 1901

 

May the Spirit of the Living God impress your heart and mine with the seriousness of these things for our own souls' sake.

 

I'm praying for you,

 

Erna
