"I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filed the temple" (Isaiah 6:1)
Brethren, when we finally have our meeting with God, it has to be alone in the depths of our being. We will be alone even if we are surrounded by a crowd. God has to cut every maverick out of the herd and brand him all alone. It isn't something that God can do for us en masse.
If it takes a crowd to get you converted, you have not been converted! If it takes a crowd to get you through the fullness of the Holy Spirit, you are going to be disappointed.
I know that people do not want to be alone with God, but if you longing heart ever finds the living water, it will be alone. We humans want to help each other and that is good insofar as we can, but God wants us to press through to His presence where there is no natural or artificial help.
He asks that we come with a naked intent unto God. We must want God Himself - and nothing more!
The love of God is paramount to every other principle... every desire subservient to that of promoting his glory.
