“There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen. The lion’s whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.” (Job 28:7-8)



There is a path – it is a foreign highway to the vulture. A vulture is a bird that feeds upon dead bodies. Matthew 24:23-28, makes it clear that false christs and false prophets will arise, and people will be saying, go here, or go there, to feed upon their ministry. If it were possible they would deceive the very elect. But Jesus already warned us, “GO NOT FORTH” and “BELIEVE IT NOT”. Then He summed it up with the illuminating fact, “for wheresoever the carcass is (dead bodies), there will the eagles (the Greek text reads, VULTURES) be gathered together”.



The vultures gather to feed upon the flesh of all these ministries. There is no stronger indictment to be made. The offerings are taken, the emotions are played upon, the soulish realm is stirred, but the inner spirit famishes for the want of FRESH MEAT OF HIS WORD, a divine revelation application for our NOW.



But, there is a path, which the vulture’s eye hath not seen; it goes beyond the flesh, beyond the corruption of man, beyond the kingdom-building programs of the carnal. It is our desire to ever walk this ascending path, mounting up, growing into spiritual maturity, into the fullness of God, into that realm of which Jesus prayed, “Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, BE WITH ME WHERE I AM: THAT THEY MAY BEHOLD MY GLORY, WHICH THOU HAST GIVEN ME.” (John 17:24)



Augustine said, “Let Him who prayed, ‘that they may be with Me where I AM,’ fulfill that prayer”. Full well this man knew that it was not in the power of his own flesh and self-works to enter into the state of being where it can be said, “I AM”. Only Christ can bring us into this UNION with Himself, to become ONE IN HIM. There is a path, it is found in HIM WHO IS “The way, The Truth, and The Life. (John 14:6)
