“Don’t Desire To Go Into Darkness!”
Now Israel (Jacob) loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colors. And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him. And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and, they hated him yet the more. And he said unto them, “Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed: behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.” And his brethren said to him, “Shall you indeed reign over us? Or, shall you indeed have dominion over us?” And, they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words. And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, “Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.” And, he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and, his father rebuked him, and said unto him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall I and your mother and your brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to you to the earth?” And his brethren envied him; but, his father observed the saying. Whom has the Lord exalted, and lifted up? And, what shall this one do? Who has chosen you! Elijah wrapped his mantle around Elisha! Who did this choosing! A man asked me, saying, “Why did the Lord not choose me?” For the Lord had said to me, “Bring My people Home!” I said, “Lord, who am I that such a thing should be given to me? Is there not someone else more worthy than I” And, the Lord said to me, “How do you know that there is another who has chosen to follow Me as you have? You will go where I say go; and, you will do what I say to do!” The conversation ended right there! After this, I would be on the highway, hitchhiking for the next five years all around this nation, learning from the Spirit. I was afraid, because I knew what an awesome responsibility that was. This is for people’s lives! I was afraid of errors; or, telling someone something wrong!
