The age-old story about the blind men and the elephant is particularly relevant to the state of the Body of Christ today, and it is a state whose time has finally ended, as far as the Holy Spirit is concerned. No longer is God interested in what the Eastern churches, the Roman church, the Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals, Calvinists, Charismatics, Evangelicals and the plethora of others have to say concerning what the Church actually is or is not. The Body of Christ is the whole elephant, and until recently only saints who have left us for brighter dimensions have been able to see the whole elephant. But The Lord Jesus is raising up a people out of the divisions to be for him a remnant of Believers who can see the whole elephant while we are still here waiting for his return, while we are still exiled in these ancestral bodies of death from which we shall one day be released, so as to join the great cloud of witnesses in the Kingdom of our Father of Lights.
