Divine Wounding

Short and simple, but an early post of Jay’s worth visiting again…

Current Events – The View From Here: BORN IN WOUNDEDNESS

Originally posted on February 12, 2011 by Jay Ferris

There are essentially two kinds of woundedness; human woundedness, and Divine woundedness.  “The Mark of Cain” was placed on the first of the wounding.  Cain was an older brother displaced by a younger one.  Beginning with Hagar, and Ishmael, Islam was born in woundedness, (rejection).  The perspective, understanding, and conversation of woundedness is easily detected by the discerning ear.  Human wounding is the fruit of its own fallenness.  Kingdoms born of human wounding make bad choices – choices that take us down rather than raise us up.

The Kingdom of God is born of Divine wounding.

The difference is that The King was:

“… pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep,
have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way;
and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
~Isaiah 53:5, 6

One more observation: All religion rooted in law, rather than “loving like God”, is wounded and wounding.  When Christianity “forgot the height from which it had fallen,” it too became wounded and wounding.  Revelation 2:5

    For those who have been born again, a conviction by the Holy Spirit and a troubled soul will always visit the one whose source of offense is their carnality. As Jay said, this is easily detected by the discerning ear. Those who will claim themselves to be Christians but don’t spend a lot of time at the meat market, do lack the discerning of good and evil, unable to embrace the necessary humility that works the wounds of Christ in us. The source of a Christian’s offense may have a form of godliness, but even an unbeliever will have a discerning ear to know that its source is certainly not God, for it will lack the divine witness.
    Pam, I am so thankful for your continued work in reposting Jay’s inspirations. They may be old posts to some, but for me they are a new song to the Lord! I pray many more find this site.

    Paul, that is a rich retake on the post, thank you! Yes, sadly where discernment is lacking in God’s people, it seems that the slack is taken up in the world :/ I really appreciate the encouragement you have offered today. Bless you!
