GOD, through His Condescension, always did come in the most insignificant, in the place and places that HE was most needed. GOD did not come in the name of Pharaoh in the land of Egypt, “Hebrew-ly” speaking; but HE came in the most insignificant, as though HE was coming as an illegitimate child; for they did not know from whence Moses came.
Firstly, little Joseph was sold down in Egypt. That was a mystery, and he was sold as a slave; but yet GOD lifted him above others who were not of his class – as a slave. So the mystery should be plain, that all might distinctly understand. Why is it that GOD comes in the most insignificant, the most illiterate, the most underprivileged, the most downtrodden among the children of men? HE comes among them that HE might lift them and bring down the loftiness of the mighty, the great and the self-exalted. Pharaoh, in his haughtiness and mightiness, could not stand against the Power of the Almighty transmitted; although it came in the most insignificant, yet he could not stand against it. That is the mystery. “Then I say, in reference to the condescension of GOD to Israel, this was merely an expression to the Israelites and to those who were called Jews. GOD appeared to them at that time, in the time of need, the same as I appeared in this dispensation, in and at the time of great depressions, lacks, wants and limitations; at the time of your need.” “When every human agency and every human possibility shall have failed you, then and only then will GOD appear; for GOD cannot work effectively, neither can HE appear to be seen distinctly wheresoever other things are represented and considered. Therefore those things must come to their destination, and man must come to his complete extremity, that GOD might have an opportunity to come; even so much as to come, and especially that GOD might have an opportunity to be ushered into expression and be considered before the masses. For this cause, it was essential and it has always been, for GOD to appear at the time and in places where HE is most needed. That is the mystery.
