The human creature is an interesting animal. He graves a rest that would make him absolutely miserable. Have you ever wondered about all the diversion inherent in life. Every sport, vice, pleasure, or obligation prevents us from that quiet moment with ourselves. That moment where we are a most miserable creature.
God knows this about us and rather than obliterating this flaw He uses it as a means to an end. In I Cor. 15 Paul does a wonderful job addressing confusion about the resurrection. In doing so he spilled even more truth. First Christ’s resurrection is paramount over all issues of faith. Resurrection is a means of proof of an end. Christ did everything according to scripture. The word an end in itself creates the means. This scripture makes clear what the end will be. All things will be brought under subjugation to Christ. After this He gives all back to God. Christ incorporated you into this subjugation process. That means you will be an evil magnet. Why are you surprised the world hates you? They know that Christ is Lord and your subjugation is evidence of theirs. If the judicial system is an evil institution based upon masonry, witchcraft, spiritualism, fraud, and the occult why are you perplexed that Christians are routinely persecuted by it. Is it Christ cannot defend? That He is deaf to all the pleas of injustice? On the contrary it is His means and your agency working a means to the end; subjugation.
This truth can be so important when you are growing faint from the battle. If we have a secret view of the end, we should not get lost in the means. God’s timing is not ours but His subjugation efforts is. What evils have been drawn to you. That territory has been assigned to you to advance the kingdom. Will you shrink back with whimpering cries of personal deliverance or seek the end? Rest is a true promise when all things are subjugated. Seeking it now is foolish. It cannot be obtained. It is better for us to keep the wicked informed there will be no rest for the wicked until all things are subjugated beneath the Lord.
If evil should become attracted to me it is a blessing, a promotion, a duty, a means to an end.
