Ruby Slippers

I found a pair of "ruby slippers" in a shop in exactly my size, a half size , not a usual find. It reminded me of a prophetic word I had received last year about Cinderella. The only person who could fit the glass shoe was Cinders.
There is a place of "perfect fit" in the body of Christ, the place where each of us belongs and can function in the fullness of our mission or calling.

When we get there it is "coming into alignment " with the homing device, the long Beeeeeep that signifies we've been locked into the tracker beam and are "In sic". In our spirit God has placed the homing device  that can only truly be locked into Him for us to return to Him. It's only than that we can have "the peace that passes understanding". Anything else is a counterfeit - it can be Very Subtle and is God's Promise that the very elect can not be deceived but Satan will certainly try Very Hard To (deceive them)

Many go down the broad easy path (to destruction) few find the straight and narrow path. We need our "ruby slippers", the perfect fit to be able to walk the straight, narrow path to GOD. "Follow the Yellow Brick Road"

It's no good trying to walk the way someone else does, it wont be the right fit for you. Jesus needs us to be individuals, we are not clones of each other. That is counterfeit and false teaching. In nature no one individual "whatever's" are the same; there is infinite variety. (think about snowflakes, every one is different!). It is even more so with Jesus/God/Holy Spirit - they Love variety and we are meant to be unique.

In the body of Christ there are many functions and purposes. (I Cor 12). We are Not all the same, we need to be the person we are designed to be so that all the body benefits from our uniqueness. All the members fitly joined together to create an homogeneous whole. Not an army of clones but a complex, changing, blending organism alive in God.

How else will we rule and reign with Christ unless we are fitly joined together with Him?

We are part of a body that has been growing since the disciples first become spirit filled at Pentecost. It is not just 2017, or 1702, or even 847. It is from Pentecost until His return that Jesus has been gathering his believers and calling us to follow Him.

He is the God of the Long View and we are very short sighted compared to Him. We may have been involved with Him from even the 1930"s til now, by our standards a long time, but a blink to Him. None of us can possibly understand or comprehend the fullness of the plan, (even Paul didn't). We get part of the picture but never the complete view. 

To think or imagine that we do or can is foolishness and arrogance and will causes us to trip up. We must always live by faith and trust because we didn't see the full picture so we must rely on God to lead and guide us into greater wisdom.

Jesus is the Head,  the Leader. Not even the most clear sighted believer can see what He see, because we are the Body, not the Head. We Follow, not lead the way. If we try that we all fall in the ditch because we are all blind together.

See Part 2

Matt7 :14 but small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Mark 13:22 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

 Phil 4:7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

1 Cor 13;12  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

1 Cor 12:12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.

Col1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy

John16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
