I have just written a paper about the false prophet, John Calvin, and in discussion with Victor, he said:
“No Calvinists are we, nor any -ists, unless we are nonists! A new word, a new category, a new ID, a new thing.
The Lord is doing a new thing.”
Our identities and lives are in Him, not in our doctrines or denials of false doctrine. All of those things, good and necessary as they are, are derived from our walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is like Victor’s song, “It’s great to be somebody, because you’re nobody, because you’re His.”
Yes, it is an exclusive cult, which by nature says “no” to everything of man, and “yes” to everything of God. This is that well-known yet secret, narrow way in which you will find life.
– Paul Cohen (March 6, 2008)
A reader is encouraged to walk in faith with what the Lord has given her.
We read of the high places in Kings and Chronicles and we imagine all sorts of things happening in them. Little do we know that they exist today, and that we ourselves are their frequenters and ardent supporters, perishing as we go.
Coming out of manmade religion is not enough. Faith and obedience is required to enter into His Rest.
