HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
Ever since Sir Darryl and I founded The Mystical Brotherhood in 2010, our purpose has been to “help people worldwide experience the manifest presence of God.”
Why is the presence of God so important? Moses prayed, “If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.” (Exodus 33:15). Without the presence of God, it’s impossible to experience the Christian life.
Thankfully, the Lord created a pathway for us to enter His presence: “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.” (Psalm 100: 4-5).
As Integrity is grown in the hearts of men and women, I’ve seen amazing things happen when people enter His presence; they’re born again, they’re healed, they learn God’s purpose for their lives.
(1) Isaiah saw the Lord in His glory, seated on His throne, high and exalted (verse 1). You never really get in touch with your destiny until you see the Lord – not only at the new birth experience but in the call being released in your life.
(2) Then, Isaiah saw himself (verse 5), and cried “Woe to me! I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips”. His sinfulness was all too apparent in the light of God’s glory. Isaiah knew he wasn’t worthy and needed God to cleanse him.
(3) Next, the Lord cleansed him (verses 6-7). One of the angels surrounding God’s throne took a burning coal from the altar and touched it to Isaiah’s mouth, saying, “Your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for”.
(4) Then, the Lord showed Isaiah his calling and purpose (verses 8-13). The Lord opened Isaiah’s ears so that he could hear God’s heart and His plan: “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? And I said, ‘Here I am. Send me!” (verse 8). God revealed His plan and calling to Isaiah, and it changed his life.
Perhaps you need to hear from God. Maybe you’re searching for direction and need to know God’s calling and purpose in your life. Like Isaiah, you’ll find your answer in God’s presence. Remember, you can’t hear from God until you’ve first seen Him, seen yourself, and been cleansed. It’s impossible to get to step four without going through the first three steps.
So today I urge you to keep trusting in the Lord and let Him have His way with you. My brothers and sisters in the Lord I encourage you to keep trusting in the Lord and let Him have control over you.
