The Lame are Healed

Updated: Mar 31, 2022

'Lost, naked, poor and blind'. Those were the words Yeshua used to describe the character of Israel. Israel had become impotent and the light that they should have been to the nations had dimmed. The result of turning away from God’s words, places the people in an exilic state, separated from God. This exile, can become comfortable — so comfortable that the people will not realise that they have become enslaved.


3:16 So because you are lukewarm (spiritually useless), and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth [rejecting you with disgust]. 17 Because you say, “I am rich, and have prospered and grown wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked [without hope and in great need], 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold that has been heated red hot and refined by fire so that you may become truly rich; and white clothes [representing righteousness] to clothe yourself so that the shame of your nakedness will not be seen; and healing salve to put on your eyes so that you may see.

The terms Yeshua uses are directed at Israel and to the lost sheep of His flock. All believers are part of this flock.

The regathering of the house of Jacob, we are told, was the reason why Yeshua came. He passed the baton on to those who would become His disciples. ‘Greater works’, He said they would do.

The message in Rev 3:17, directs our attention to a group who see themselves as having prospered and in need of nothing. These are a deluded group and Yeshua tells them, ‘do you not see’, a reference to their blindness. They have exchanged their garments from the robes of righteousness for the latest trend. Instead of investing in and building God’s house, they have built their own houses and corrupted the word for their own benefit.

What they have done, reveals an outward appearance of godliness but Yeshua sees through these garments to their nakedness.

In the last few days, the Lord revealed to me a symptom which has manifest among the various flocks of sheep I see around the nearby hills and fields.

Limping sheep continue to roam amongst the grassland, and recentl
