How slender the force seemed that was to scatter the world’s darkness, roll back its wickedness, and take away its guilt! How striking the lesson for us not to be afraid though the apparent force of truth and goodness in the world be infinitesimally small. The (William Garden Blaikie, The Expositor’s Bible) My friends, like before the flood when “every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.”

But one maintained a vision for God and eight were saved. 4,000 years later, many are being offended and repelled [by their association with Christ] and will fallen away [from the One whom they should be trusting]….. “and where there is no vision the people parish” Prov. 29:18 (KJV)

My friends God’s vision for “such a time as this,” is the  good news of the the gospel og God’s kingdom. And once this shared vision is preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, then the end of the age will come.”

So my friends, the call of God to respond to His will and to make rational decisions based on thus says the Lord can only be headed when we cry out on our knees for the gift of discernment while recognizing Gods vision for us that is stated through His word and explained to us through God’s Spirit.

“Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed to him. The Lord called Samuel a third time. Again, he went to Eli the priest and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. Eli discerned it was the voice of God. So he told Samuel to lie back down and next He calls say, “Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth.”

My friends, we must understand at this point God had stop talking to Eli because he had already been warned that God was about to judge his house forever for the sinful behavior which he knew [was happening], because his sons were bringing a curse on themselves [dishonoring and blaspheming God] and he did not rebuke them.” 1 Samuel 3:12-13 (AMP)

Samuel 3:1 (KJV) tells us during this time “the word of the Lord was rare…….and there was no open vision.” Visions my friends are God’s way of “clarifying” His purpose for our lives as we relay a shared vision to each one who God places on this journey with us. And without those “visions we all parish.” So, if God is alien to us because of a lack of study and prayer how do we define God’s vision to others who have lost hope and are perishing within Babylon. Remember, God’s cry is to come out of “Babylon because she will fall, [because it] has become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” Rev. 18:2 (KJV) But if we have no vision because the things in Babylon is more pleasing, how do others know God’s vision for their lives and respond to His message through us. God had ceased speaking to Eli and relayed His vision through Samuel. My friends, we wanted heaven, but still “said no to God,” because of His conditions. But don’t worry, “the stones will cry out” God’s vision, and “then the end will come.”
