And, being true in love, we may increase to Him in all things, who is the head - the Christ. Eph 4:15 - Young.Spiritual increase is fundamentally linked to truth. Enlargement in the spiritual realm is indeed connected to love for the truth. Growth unto manhood will not materialise unless this particular love grows. Truth is substantiated presence, is crystallised presence. Being spiritually inclined and at the same time being out of touch with reality is one of those popular contradictions in the modern Church.In the prophetic dimension we find certain concepts without which this very sensitive realm would fall apart and fall apart rapidly. Veracity is one of those items and issues which out of necessity must receive proper attention. The habit of being true. The deep-rooted custom of being real. The fixed and constant routine of attending to what is of the light. That is what it is to be veracious. That is what is meant to bring in something of the essence of the Crystal Lake.The Holy Spirit speaks truth. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth. Consistency. That timeless element. He never speaks anything new, anything which is never heard of. His role is to plant Newness of Life, which indeed is the mystery of godliness - 1 Tim 3:14-16. The modern Church is set on a quest for hidden wisdom in the name of prophecy and novelty, rather than acquiring a familiarity and consistency with the obvious and fundamental truths of the Gospel. There is nothing new at the Crystal Lake, only Newness of Life, only plain spiritual reality in purity. Being firmly positioned there is the role of the House. To be firmly positioned there is the point of arrival, an arrival unto the eternal purpose of God.Lars W.
