Clouds and Darkness
Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne. (Psalms 97:2)
A man who has not been born of the spirit of God will tell you that the teachings of Jesus Christ are simple. But when you are baptised with the Holy Ghost, you find "clouds and darkness are round about Him". When we come into close contact with the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ we have our first insight into this aspect of things. The only possibility of understanding the teaching of Lord Jesus Christ is by the light of the Spirit of God on the inside. lf 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 of Lord Jesus Christ. After the amazing delight and liberty of realising that Lord Jesus Christ does, comes the impenetrable darkness of realising who He is.
Lord Jesus Christ 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 the sudden of words become spirit and life because Lord Jesus respeaks them to us in a particular condition. That is the way God speaks to us, not by visions and dreams, but but by the words. When a man gets to God it is by the most simple way of words. Amen.
