GOD IS GOD - ISN'T HE?

This week, as I read through the Bible, I came to the Book of Job. Now, this is not my favourite book! For I am a man of relatively few words (well, most of the time!) and like to say what I have to say succinctly and to the point. Even though I have the Semitic nose, I am certainly not a Jew when it comes to talking and arguing! So the detailed discussions of Job's woes does not do much for me.

Usually though, as I read through the interminable arguments, something of note strikes me. This time it has too! I have noticed the difference in the way God is viewed by Job and by his friends. To be fair to the friends, we must remember that in Old Testament times, God's workings and blessings are primarily experienced in a physical way. So, when Job fell on hard times, it was natural for them to argue that God had deserted him.

However, Job had a different spirit. Even though he complained to God and became very self-centred in the midst of his misery, Job did not reject God, nor deny God's right to do with him what He wished. Finally, Job was blessed with twice as much as he had before.

Today however, living under the New Covenant, our blessings and dealings with God are primarily spiritual. For Jesus proclaimed a new covenant, one of spiritual grace, not physical law.

10 This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. (Hebrews 8:10)

Today, many still believe erroneously, in the Old Covenant ways, considering believers who have more money to be more blessed in God than those who don't. This is patently not true when you meet individuals, completely sold out to God, and God to them, yet who do not have a penny to their name, not worrying that they don't either! God is truly their daily provider. The way we are commanded to live in the Lord's (disciples really!) Prayer. A challenging but spiritually blessed life to live! I know from personal experience! Like Job in his trials, invariably His sold out saints will be tested too. And like Job, God is confident they will come through, at the same time developing a greater depth of character and heightened spirituality.

It is really interesting too, that those whom God uses greatly usually have a 'thorn' to remind them of their humanity and fully appreciate who is the boss! Look at Paul, the great apostle. He says it all!

7 To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)

Those who have great giftings, particularly in the healing area, where pride can quickly take hold, often have had a thorn or thorns accompanying their ministries. For example, Katherine Kuhlman struggled with heart disease for nearly 20 years - and had many other problems in her life! Smith Wigglesworth, probably the greatest of the healing evangelists, had extremely poor eyesight and struggled with severe kidney stones and sciatica.

This principle of testing and brokenness can be seen through these comments from J Lee Grady in 'Fire In My Bones' 'Whatever Happened to Brokenness?' where he talks about famous revivalists.

Their names are probably somewhat familiar to you. Jonathan Edwards. John Wesley. Charles Finney. Catherine Booth. Andrew Murray. Owen Roberts. Charles Spurgeon. Fanny Crosby. Watchman Nee. A.W. Tozer. William Seymour. Corrie ten Boom. Leonard Ravenhill. Fuchsia Pickett.

All of them could be labeled revivalists. All challenged the Christians of their generation to embrace repentance and humility. They understood a realm of spiritual maturity and a depth of character that few of us today even aspire to obtain.

When I read their words I feel much the same way I did after hearing my grandparents’ voices on that old tape. I feel as if I am tapping into a realm of spirituality that is on the verge of extinction.

What was the secret of these great Christians who left their legacies buried in their books? They considered humility, selflessness and sacrifice the crowning virtues of the Christian journey. They called the church to die to selfishness, greed and ambition. They knew what it means to carry a “burden” for lost souls. They saw the glories of the kingdom and demanded total surrender. They challenged God’s people to pursue obedience—even if obedience hurts.


The Bible tells a similar story.

12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed....... 19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. (1 Peter 4:12-13,19)

Yes - obedience costs and hurts! For God is God! And He is calling on us to surrender ourselves totally to Him. Like Job, like Paul, we may question Him. But if we are to enter into all that our God has for us we must surrender our lives totally to His will and desires for us, no matter the pain, no matter the cost.

How far in acknowledging that God is God are we prepared to go?

FROM THE WORD

PAUL'S VISION AND HIS THORN
"I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— was caught up to paradise. He heard inexpressible things, things that man is not permitted to tell. I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say. To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Corinthians 12:1-10)

SUFFERING FOR BEING A CHRISTIAN
"Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good." (1 Peter 4:12-19)

"Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy." (James 5:10-11)

DAVID'S DOODLINGS

GODLINESS

1251. Godliness is like climbing to the top of the mountain. It takes effort, it can be chilly, there is little company, but the views from the summit are heavenly!

1252. Godliness is going 'down' in self in order to go 'up' in God.

1253. Godliness is available to us all, but only obtained by the few prepared to pay the life price.

1254. To the foolish, life in Christ is a security blanket, to the wise, a lifestyle, but to the godly, their very reason for being.

1255. The foolish try to change themselves, the wise allow God to change them, while the godly submit their very being to the Lord and His will for them.

1256. God redeems the foolish, loves the wise, but truly seeks the godly.

1257. We are happy to seek everything from God, but loath to give Him back everything of us, in return!

1258. We need to empty the house of our life, in order to make room for His replacement furniture.

1259. The simple choice of godliness - will 'I' or will 'I not' give God 'my will'!

1260. Godliness grows as me goes!

1261. Godliness is discovered in truly entering into God's rest.

1262 - 1271.
Godliness is...
....... putting God's heart in place of mine.
....... placing other's needs before my own.
....... keeping short accounts with God and others.
....... blessing God before myself.
....... giving myself to God because I truly love Him, without expecting a return.
....... absorbing the ridicule of others without reacting negatively.
....... being sold out to God's will for my life.
....... truly entering God's rest.
....... being prepared to die for my Lord.
....... Christ likeness.

CRANWELL'S CARTOON


THE RICH YOUNG MAN

16 Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?” 17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments.” 18 “Which ones?” the man inquired. Jesus replied, ”‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’” 20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”
21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. 23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 19:15-24)

TUESDAY TEACHINGS

A REVELATION OF....... THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID - Part 12

REJECTED - AS JESUS WAS!
Sad though we get, most of us can understand and accept rejection by non-believers.

But the biggest critics of the ministry of Jesus were not the unbelieving Samaritans but the religious leaders of the day.

David found the same response from the 'King Saul' family of his time.

The same principle still applies today.

LAUGHING AT OURSELVES

***Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused***

*** "Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others." ***

518. THE POPE AND THE POLICE
Recently the Pope decided that he could save some expenses at the Vatican by learning how to drive himself. That way they would not need to pay for a driver everywhere he went.

The following month, there were two motorcycle police in Washington D.C. who were on traffic patrol when they saw a white limosine blasting down the expressway.

The younger wanted to catch the speeder, but the older one said, "Forget it. It's probably some big shot politician who will just get the ticket fixed."

Not to be discouraged, the younger gave chase. He returned a short time later, rather more quiet then when he had left.

"Well, did you write the citation?" asked the other officer.

"No."

Was he some big shot, like I told you?"

"Yeah. I think he was."

"I'll bet he was some Senator or something. Right?"

"I, uh, don't think so. I think he was bigger than that."

"You telling me that was the Vice President?"

"No, I, uh, he was bigger than that."

"Don't tell me you stopped the President!"

"No. I think he was a lot bigger than that!"

"Just who do you think is bigger than the President?"

"Well," replied the younger, "I couldn't see who was in the back seat, but he had the Pope driving for him!"

517. MANY A TRUE WORD.....
A minister had worked long and hard on his first sermon, and the delivery of it on Sunday morning had started off well. But as he was approaching the conclusion, he became aware that he had lost most of his listeners.

When he finished, he added softly, "I hope it's true."

The congregation was startled by that, and sat up to listen. "I hope it's true," said the preacher again. "Because if it is true that you can learn while you sleep, I will have the best-informed congregation in town."

WORLD'S GREATEST GROANS

A GREAT EXCUSE
A sailor was caught AWOL as he tried to sneak on board his ship at about 3 a.m. The chief petty officer spied him and ordered the sailor to stop. Upon hearing the sailor's lame explanation for his tardiness, the officer ordered the sailor, “Take this broom and sweep every link on this anchor chain by morning or it's the brig for you!”

The sailor began to pick up the broom and commence performing his charge. As he began to sweep, a tern landed on the broom handle. The sailor yelled at the bird to leave, but it didn't. The lad picked the tern off the broom handle, giving the bird a toss. The bird left, only to return and light once again on the broom handle. The sailor went through the same routine all over again, with the same result. He couldn't get any cleaning done because he can only sweep at the chain once or twice before the blasted bird returns. When morning came, so did the chief petty officer, to check up on his wayward sailor.

“What in the world have you been doing all night, sleeping on the job? This chain is no cleaner than when you started! What have you to say for yourself, sailor?” barked the chief.

“Honest, chief,” came the reply, “I tossed a tern all night and couldn't sweep a link!”

THE MANE EVENT
NO MATTER how hard he tried, Uncle Fred couldn’t discourage a pair of sparrows from trying to build a nest in his horse’s mane. Every evening, he’d brush out the twigs and grass, but the next morning, the sparrows would be at it again. He didn’t want to harm either his horse or the birds, so he sought the advice of his wise friend Sol.

Sol, who had quite a collection of home-style remedies, suggested that Uncle Fred sprinkle some brewer’s yeast into the horse’s mane. Uncle Fred didn’t see how the brewer’s yeast could help—after all, this wasn’t a flea problem. But he tried it anyway.

Sure enough, it worked! The next morning, The horse’s mane was free of twigs, and the sparrows were building their nest in a nearby tree. When asked what made this odd remedy work, Sol replied with a smile, “Well…yeast is yeast and west is west, and never the mane shall tweet.”

INTELLIGENT LION
A hungry lion was roaming through the jungle looking for something to eat. He came across two men. One was sitting under a tree and reading a book the other was typing away on his typewriter. The lion quickly pounced on the man reading the book and devoured him.

Even the king of the jungle knows that readers digest and writers cramp.

MANNERS AND CUSTOMS IN BIBLICAL LANDS

FOOD: WHEAT GRAIN IN THE FIELD

Once past the milk stage and beginning to harden, wheat grain is called 'fereek' and is regarded as delicious eaten raw. Over the centuries there was an unwritten law that passers by may eat some of the wheat as they pass through, or by, a field. But they must not carry any away with them.

The law of God formalised this hospitality practise in Deuteronomy 23:35.

BESIDE ME

This is my very first poem, written during a really hard period in my life. For we had lost our business and I was fighting desperately, ultimately unsuccessfully, to stave off
bankruptcy. Written in the days before I became a Christian, (it took bankruptcy to do
that – some of us are slow learners!) but I was starting to look at what really are the
important things in life.

BESIDE ME

When I look back on all we have done together,
Picking the daffodils in the wind and the rain,
I am so grateful that whatever the weather,
And bearing the back that gives you pain,
You have walked beside me.

At times it has been a lot of fun,
We have laughed, cried and had the odd thrill.
But more often you have had to run,
To race, to get the job done, but still,
You have walked beside me.

And now, when my life has collapsed around my ears,
Your strength has helped me to keep my sanity,
When I have been down and experienced new fears, While I have suffered great blows
to my vanity,
You have walked beside me.

I have worked so hard all these years,
To yours and the family’s cost.
It is hard sometimes to fight back the tears,
Yet no matter how much we have lost,
You have walked beside me.

Your beauty has always drawn me to you
Like the bee to the flower of the honeysuckle tree,
To me I know you have always been true
While surely, sometimes you have wanted to be free,
You have walked beside me.

And though life at times seems bitter, twisted and curled,
Your love gives me strength to go on fighting.
I am just the luckiest man in all the world,
To have your name next to mine in writing.
You have walked beside me.

And now as I have to rebuild my life’
To meet new challenges, to reach new goals.
How blessed I am to have you as my wife,
To know that however the countryside rolls,
You will walk beside me.

A DAVID MUSING

Last week I indicated that I would have something to tell this week.

Well, this is it! The Lord is opening the way for me to go back to Africa, the UK and the US in the last quarter of this year. It is now over 2 years since I was last away. While invitations have never been a problem, for they come very frequently, getting the Lord's okay has not been so easy until now.

In Africa I am looking at visiting South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda. In the UK I look forward to seeing our family and meeting two of my grandchildren for the first time. The twins will be 18 months old by then. In the US, to being with close associates in the International Circle of Faith (ICOF) whom I have not yet met face to face.

Of course, the next challenge, the next test of faith and right judgement, is the provision of finances. I would 'like' to take a cameraman to make a series of TV programmes on "A Journey Through Africa". I would 'love' to have Kathy join me for part of the time. But the 'wish list' costs! And Kathy cannot yet get the leave she requires at the right time from the hospital. So that does need a 'God job' to make it happen. We will just have to pray and wait and see how the Lord moves and what He provides.

Although the Lord owns the cattle on a thousand hills, cows don't fall from the sky! Which is fortunate, as they would likely make a big splatter! He uses people to help people.

This is the first time we have had to step out in full faith, not having a financial reserve available to fall back on. So it is a real test for us! Another growth stage for Kathy and I in our walk with Jesus towards maturity. Life in Jesus is always to be a challenge. Should it become too easy, we wouldn't really need Him! The sad state of much of western Christianity today!

But that is another subject...

So until next week...

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD.

His servant and yours
