Who will go for Us?

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me.’ Isaiah 6.8

A servant of God is a sacrifice himself, as for example the Son of God. As Abraham was to God, so are those who heed the calling and obey the calling: who will go for Us.

If rescuing one soul from hell was enough for God to send His Only Son to the World, imagine rescuing millions throughout the history of humanity. The Plan of the salvation of souls compelled the Most High to give His Only Son as a sacrifice, until the last drop of blood.

God showed the model of the servant He expects from those who want to save souls from hell. If He sacrificed, all of His blood to save me, I would imagine that I have to do the same, if I really want to rescue the lives of others from hell.

He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Psalm 126.6

The servant’s search for an easy way out of serving the Lord will not allow for his work to grow. On the other hand, the difficulties he encounters during the growth of his work will become easier as the work continues. Surprisingly, this is precisely what we have seen in our ministry.

There is no way to get to the Father, through the Son, led by the Holy Spirit without the sacrifice of renouncing your life to this world. How does a servant of the Most High say, “here am I,” without giving up his own dreams and projects? How does one offer to serve Him, and at the same time think of taking advantage of this?

The Work of God was not, is not and will never be a profession or a way of life for you and your family. Due to the lack of this awareness, many that were once called have been discarded throughout their journey.

A true servant is consumed with wanting to serve the LORD for all of his life.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn… Isaiah 61.1-2

Like John the Baptist, who lived a short time in the desert and from there he went to his death;

Like the Lord Jesus, who also lived a short time until he was killed at Calvary;

Like all the true prophets and apostles of the past, the same happens with the servants of the present.

As servants, they did not have time to enjoy life like King Solomon.

Unfortunately, most of those who present themselves with the “here am I”intend on taking advantage of being a prophetto live like a king, and not with total dedication to the mission of the Most High. For this reason, many have given up, disowned and even committed suicide.

The Work of the Most High is not just a good idea, let alone an adventure. “Here am I” involves surrendering the will to live for yourself in this world. It is your all for the ALL OF GOD: total sacrifice.
