The almost insurmountable fact, as Mr. Merrill Jenkins once noted, is that "Those unaware are unaware of being unaware." Perhaps this explains why they stand where they do today, positioned against all of the wonderful new covenant truths that the apostles and prophets labored so long and hard to bring to our attention. Undoubtedly they well knew the insurmountable reality that they faced to try and convince the rigid human mind to pay very close attention to the right things, instead of drifting off with just any strange teacher who presents himself with many of the wrong things. But a great void and vacuum has created a serious situation in christendom, and we stumble around like blind men searching in the dark, because the good guidance of that highly acclaimed straight way has not really been found.
Our modern church leaders need to realize that the straight and narrow way seriously needs their attention. Then they would realize that the temporal minded earthly kingdom leaves much to be desired, and the waiting church needs more spiritual sustenance and much less of the earthly. The stuff of any future revival is not found in any earthly kingdom, but it is found in the word of God, spoken and revealed. Only, the church has been missing it! It's a terrible thing to have to say, but it is so true!Some would then counter that those of us who would let heaven fill our thoughts are "no earthly good anyway."
When that happens Heaven walks right by and they are UNAWARE.
