THE BLOCK OF GOLD
BY: MARTIN & DEANNA PAULAT
The Lord is doing some precious things in our day and we are so glad He is sharing with us what He is about to do. Of course, He said in Isaiah 42:9, “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.” How wonderful to be a friend of the Lord’s”, like Jesus said in John 15:15, “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.”
It is a great sign of friendship for the Lord to show us what He is doing on the earth today, and to show us things to come. Isn’t He wonderful? Amen!
Feb. 27th, the Lord gave Martin this dream/vision: “I looked and I saw something coming down from heaven. The Lord said He was giving this to me. It appeared to be a large block of gold coming down to me. The size was seven feet by five feet by three feet high. As it came down, I discovered it shone like it had light in it. It reminded me of transparent gold. “… and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.” Rev. 21:21 (And are not we the city of the living God?)
It was impressed upon me that this was very valuable, so I chipped off a piece about one inch by one inch by 1/4 inch, and called some jewelers together for an evaluation. The jewelers offered me a million dollars for this small chip of gold. I replied, ‘Oh, that’s not enough’, for I knew the value was greater than that. They then offered me ten million for it and I went home without selling it and knowing the true worth.
As I pondered this before the Lord, He made me to know the gold block He was giving me was none other than His nature. This is such a valuable thing He is giving us. It is more precious than gold.
His nature in us is more valuable than all the gifts, and miracles He has given us. It is from His very heart. It is greater than any gift He has ever given us.
Soon, the Lord showed me a picture of the Lord on one side, and the devil on the other. The devil was proud and boastful, mean and loud, wanting his own way and showing off his greatness. Jesus was humble and lowly. He was grieved at sin and felt compassion for us. He was full of love and goodness.
I understood the nature God was giving us was the nature of a lowly and humble spirit. It is this nature that will change us to be in His image.
This did so much in us that we felt such a peace and love from the Lord we have never felt before. His nature really fulfills our every need. When we take on His nature, there is fullness. Truly the Lord has given us a foretaste of the change that is soon to take place in the body of Christ to make us pure and ready for His coming.
In Revelation 21:18, the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. The city of God is pure gold like glass. Rev. 21:21 says the street of the city was pure gold, as if it were transparent glass. Here we see the people of God as pure gold and the street as pure gold. The street is the place of our walk. We shall be pure. This reminds me of the promise of God to clothe us in white raiment. He alone can make us holy and we shall walk with Him in white. Blessed be the Lord!”
