GOD'S IN THE HOUSE?

THE MATURING OF THE CHURCH

One day, in the shower, in Nairobi, Kenya, the Lord gave me a revelation.

I had just seen the amazing new TBN broadcasting auditorium on TV, filled with beautiful people (It seems compulsory for preachers to have glamorous wives, generally much younger than themselves!) fantastic choirs, singers and setting, all broadcast over 47 satellites.

In contrast, a shower here in Kenya is not 5 jets all massaging your body from different directions at the same time while relaxing music plays in the background, to make the perfect 'showering experience'! Rather, a bowl of water, heated over a charcoal fire, for even in the tropics, showering (actually washing)in cold water is still an 'envigorating' experience! The bowl is then placed in the one room that is used for both bathing and as a toilet.

While truly enjoying my 'shower-wash', the Lord showed me a picture of the pentecostal church. How it started in storefronts and homes, of how rejected these first weird 'pentes' were. But these early pentecoestals remained fully committed to the cause, staying close to God, for they were then at the forefront of God's revelation and indeed, presence.

Gradually however, Pentecostalism (Now with a capital 'P') has become mainstream. Pastors (and now Bishops) have become elevated beyond a job description or a calling, to positions above the people - a new priesthhod. In the West, new pastors must be seminary trained, and likely receive a reasonable salary from the beginning of their ministry. No longer is their real sacrifice in being 'called' to ministry.

In our services, the emphasis has changed from listening to the Holy Spirit and following His desires, to a concentration on excellence and good order to the near exclusion of Holy Spirit leading. Worship times, unlike the days of the storefront believers, are based on a proven formula of thanksgiving, praise, then worship, followed by (maybe) a prophecy, then the Word and finally ministry - until we all go home after exactly 2 hours.

Next comes an emphasis on building buildings, 'for the glory of God', as so grandiously epitomised by TBN. I have been involved in 3 different pentecostal churches over the years and have seen this process in practice. All churches that started meeting in homes, then storefronts or halls, before being 'called' to build or buy a church. The church then has to be rebuilt to be bigger and/or ancillery buildings added, so that a 'church complex' is created.

Often too, we hear the statement, 'God is in the house'. Wow! Fantastic! But is it true? Is God really in these beautiful structures man has created? Or rather, is He in the hearts of the people who inhabit the house? Or again, has He departed altogether, to allow us to 'play church' in the beautiful temples man has built!

For the process of 'monument building' that started in the 4th century AD with the Roman Catholic Church, that continued after the Reformation once those churches became mainstream, continues today as Pentecotalism has entered the mainstream also. This simply is the process of a maturing church.

As I stood in my simple 'shower', in my hosts small but loving home, the Lord showed me that the people He calls on to impart the next revelation are those with the kingdom within, those dissatisfied with the established status quo, those hungering for more of Him. Ones whose emphasis remains on the spiritual, who have not been seduced by the inevitable physical emphasis of the maturing church.

Today God is calling out another new generation, as He has in times past. This time it is a new generation desiring to move forward into the new (but old!) truths of submission and obedience to the Father's will, of servanthood and sacrifice, a simple people with sold out hearts to God, those who will finally fulfill the Great Commission. A church, not of Pastors, Programmes and Property, but of 'kingdom people' who, through their sacrifice, will usher in the return of Jesus.

Are you prepared to pay the price? I am!

FROM THE WORD

THE MIGHTY LORD REIGNS
Psalms of intimacy, encouragement, healing and comfort.

Psalms updated from the King James Version by David Tait.

PSALM 100

Composed for the Temple Liturgy.

A praise song acknowledging the Lord's faithfulness, calling on all to praise him.


Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness. Come into his presence with singing. Know that the LORD is God. It is he who has made us, not us ourselves. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Be thankful to him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good. His love is everlasting, and his faithfulness endures through all generations.

PSALM 103

A Psalm of David.

A hymn composed by David, to recognize God's love and compassion towards his people.


Praise the LORD, O my soul. All that is within me praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, O my soul, remembering all his benefits. Who forgives all your sins; who heals all your diseases; who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with love and compassion. Who satisfies your desires with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. The LORD executes righteousness and judgment for all the oppressed. He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the children of Israel. The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he keep his anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his love towards those who fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion upon his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him. For he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. As for man - his days are as grass, as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it and it is gone. Its place remembers it no more. From everlasting to everlasting, the love of the LORD is upon those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children: to those who keep his covenant and to those who remember to do his commandments. The LORD has prepared his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. Praise the LORD, you his angels, who excel in strength - who do his commandments and obey his word. Praise you the LORD, all you heavenly hosts - his servants who do his will. Praise the LORD, all his works, everywhere throughout his dominion. Praise the LORD, O my soul.

PSALM 110

A Psalm of David.

A prophetic psalm outlining the coming of Jesus, some 1,500 years after the time of King David! What an amazing assurance to us of God's wonderful grace and mercy!


The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool." The LORD shall send your mighty scepter out of Zion, to rule in the midst of your enemies. Your people shall be volunteers on the day of your battle. In the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning dawn, you have the dew of your youth. The LORD has sworn, and will not change his mind. You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek. The Lord is at your right hand. He will crush kings in the day of his wrath. He will judge the nations. He will heap up the dead, crushing the rulers of many countries. He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore he shall lift up his head.

DAVID'S DOODLINGS

HEAVENLY TRUTHS GOD HAS SHOWN ME

739. - 809. God has shown me that...

... when there is less of me there is room for more of Him.

... salvation is a privilege, not a right.

... He can change me if I let Him.

... while salvation is free, the walk with Jesus is to cost us everything we have.

... our love for Him is reflected through our service to others.

... His love is infinitely greater than my hurts, and His grace, than my sins.

CRANWELL'S CARTOON



THE PARABLE OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN
25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” 27 He answered: ”‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” 28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ 36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” 37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” (Luke 10:25-37)

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." ***

553. SIZE MATTERS
One Sunday school teacher believed in dramatizing Bible morals with stories that could have specific modern applications. So the teacher said to the class of young boys, “Forgiveness is always a virtue. Could you, for example, forgive another boy if he had hit you with his fist?”

The class gave serious thought to so grave a matter, and finally one smallish lad said, “Yes sir, I could if he was bigger than me.”

552. IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED
A pastor was counseling a newlywed couple who had just had their first fight. “Why would her cooking get you so mad, Tom?” asked the pastor.
“Well,” Tom replied, “I asked if the steak was ready yet, and she told me, ‘I’m sorry for the delay, dear, but it looked hopeless grilled, and it doesn’t look much better fried, but if you’ll be patient a little longer, I’ll see what boiling does to it.’”

AN AFRICAN EXPERIENCE

When it rains in Africa, it really does rain! Hard! In huge drops! It truly is wet! And, of course the roads are mainly clay and drains minimal.

During this week, my final one in Africa, in Nairobi, Kenya, it is the rainy season. Most days had a little rain, but one night, or rather, in the early morning, it really poured down in buckets!

I was sure the next day's ministry would be cancelled. But the team got cracking and swept the water out of the church with straw brushes, restored electricity by running a long extension cord over the wet road (no protection) to another building and 'the show was on the road' again. And what's more, the people come! I was amazed. By the afternoon it had fined up beautifully again!

Northern Kenya is notoriously dry, just about a desert. It has had a prolonged drought, which you may well have heard about. Now however, it is suffering again with huge floods! Things are never easy for these people. Some are emigrating to other, more climate friendly, areas of the country. This is probably the best solution to an otherwise insoluble problem.

Africa - a land of contrasts.

FACTS FOR FUN

LAST WEEKS QUESTION: What happens to butterflies if their body temperature goes below 86 degrees Fahrenheit?

ANSWER: They are unable to fly. (As temperatures cool, do they get ‘the butterflies’?)

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: Thomas Edison did not invent, as many people believe, but improved upon electric lights. But which of these were Edison inventions? The phonograph, the motion picture camera, the mimeograph machine, the electric vote recorder, the dictating machine, and wax paper?

Answer Next Week.

SOME FUN FACTS

427. NO TIME
When in China, avoid giving the gift of a clock. To the older Chinese generation, the clock is a symbol of bad luck. (To me too, when I am running late!)

428. HEAR TO THE LAST
When a person is dying, hearing is generally the last sense to go. The first sense lost is usually sight. Then follows taste, smell, and touch. (All of us who wear glasses – we are on the way out!)

429. HOW ARE WARS EVER WON?
When a military contractor referred to a "manually powered fastener-driving impact device," he was talking about a hammer. (The quoted price no doubt reflected the ‘enhancement’ of the name.)

BIBLE QUESTION - THE PARABLES

In the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard, in Matthew 20:1-16, a landowner goes into the city one morning to hire workers for his vineyard. Later in the day he goes twice more to hire additional workers. At the end of the day he gives all the laborers the same pay. The workers who worked all day grumbled when they got only the same pay as those who worked just a few hours.

Which is a lesson of this parable?

a. Self righteous people are only fooling themselves.
b. God does not "owe" us anything.
c. It is OK for an employer to pay whatever wages he feels are fair.
d. The rewards we receive from God will be according to the amount of service we have done for Him.

LIFE'S A LAUGH!

A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE
About a year ago my sister, who lives in Virginia, was talking with her four year old son, Brent. He was asking her why all their relatives from Wisconsin talk funny and sound like their noses are plugged up.

"They think we have an accent," she replied.

"But they have an accent, right?", Brent asked. "They talk funny?"

"Everybody talks in different ways" she tried to explain. "To them, we sound like we talk very slow and all our words are d-r-a-w-n out."

His eyes got big, and he whispered seriously, "Oh, no. You mean they hear funny too?"

CLASSIFIED AD
I called the local newspaper's classified section to complain about an ad I'd placed. It was obvious the person who took my information had never spent any time on a farm.

"I said 'ewes'," I argued.

"Pardon?" replied the operator.

"Ewes. It makes a difference to some people."

The ad that was placed read: "Sheep for sale--USED."

WHAT'S FREE
At their tag sale, my daughters put all of the "junk" they just wanted to get rid of in a carton marked "Free Box." Moments after they set it at the end of the driveway, a man drove up, looked at the box, dumped its contents on the lawn, and drove off with the box.

Much more real life humour here...

ANOTHER AFRICAN EXPERIENCE

The Lord has a sense of humour! For He saved the best until last! In ministry terms, that is.

My hosts, David and Priscilla, arranged a 4 day conference for me that was fantastic. The Word poured out of me into receptive hearts and the Holy Spirit was powerfully present throughout.

I was busy sharing almost until the time to catch the plane to London. Hard work but extremely fulfilling and a wonderful way to end my 4th African experience!

You my see a full report from attendees next week.

Farewell Africa! You are great people!

UNDERLYING BIBLICAL SPIRITUAL MEANINGS

Tips to Help You Better Understand the Spiritual Meaning of Your Bible

Many words in the Bible have implied spiritual meanings as well as literal ones. For instance, numbers in Hebrew have an underlying meaning as well as a numeric value. e.g. the number 7 speaks of completion or perfection. Other words have a spiritual significance as well as a literal meaning. e.g. when scripture talks of a ‘lamb’ it is usually a type of Jesus, the ‘Lamb of God’ (John 1:29)

I trust that this list will help you better understand some of the amazing spiritual truths hidden in the pages of God’s Word, the Bible. Do be careful however, to apply these types and pictures sensibly. The relevance of their application must be considered in the context in which the words are used in the passage being studied and in the Bible as a whole.

Of Nature

CLAY---------Man

DARKNESS----Sin, Satan

DEW----------Devotion

DROUGHT-----Judgement

DUST---------Natural man

FIRE----------Judgement, Testing, Purification (Sometimes Holy Spirit)

FLOOD--------Judgement

LIGHT---------God, Personal revelation we have received of God

LIGHTENING---Judgement

MOUNTAIN----Authority

MOON---------Jesus

WAXING LYRICAL

When all else fails, we have our family! Or we should. When our family fails, they are still our family! Or they should be. Our family is our greatest source of both pleasure and frustration. They know us best. We cannot fool them. So here is a little about our family. Since the poem was written Andrew and Catriona have produced our baby Eva, our first grandchild. But 20,000km away in Scotland! Thankyou Lord for emails!

LIFE’S A LAWNMOWER, MATE! (1 of 2)

Uptown, I heard a new saying - life’s a lawnmower mate?
Like us, in a range of models, whose features we debate.
Mechanical and manual, rotary and reel,
Push types and ride-ons, all made of steel.
Being sold with a promise, yes, so sparkling and new,
But we know they mean work, before we’re all through!
Oh yes, life’s a lawnmower, mate!

Like a new baby, right out of the box,
Full of promise, when kept off the rocks
Of trouble, that can soon blunt our blades,
Just as we look set, to mow many glades.
To mow through life, needs that something special,
If we are to succeed, to develop our full potential.
Oh yes, life’s a lawnmower, mate!

Take my life’s lawnmower for instance,
A racy model, but will it last the distance?
For the challenge of a newly grown field, I will always look,
Something different, preferably new, but never by the book.
Though sometimes to discover, I’ve bitten off more than I can chew!
To learn the art of patience, to pace myself, that is what I must do.
Oh yes, life’s a lawnmower, mate!

My wife Kathy, is a model so different,
With a long stroke bore, reliable, diligent.
For she was born like her mother, a nurse she’d always be,
Until she revved her sweet engine, ending up marrying me!
The years that followed, oft times were filled with pain,
Now she’s finally fulfilled, having gone nursing again.
Oh yes, life’s a lawnmower, mate!

Our eldest son Andrew was not a lawnmower fan,
Mowing lawns and gardening do not make the man!
So he revved up his mower for a journey over the sea,
To the land of Scotland, so his own man he could be.
Once settled, he was motivated to make a good living,
So tuning his motor, he went landscape gardening!
Oh yes, life’s a lawnmower, mate!

As the business built up, his lawnmower faster would run,
Until the day he realised, two mowers were better than one.
So he found a gorgeous, sleek new model, Catriona by name,
Another nurse, could be worse, their directions both the same,
For their mutual desire is to start a new church,
To harvest people, not leave them in the lurch.
Oh yes, life’s a lawnmower, mate!

A DAVID MUSING

Today is Saturday. This morning, about 6am, I met Kathy at Terminal 4, Heathrow Airport, London, England! She had arrived from New Zealand an hour earlier after a 20,000 km flight.

How I had been looking forward to it! And it lived up to expectations! Even if we did have to wait 7 hours at the airport before travelling to a local B & B to celebrate and rest after a couple of days of little sleep.

Now have found a computer to write this after having had Fish and Chips, English style, (But New Zealand's favorite takeaway too!) for dinner this evening. And also seeing on the TV, New Zealand's 'All Blacks' rugby team thrash Wales, 48-10.

A quick reintroduction to Western society!

Now it is time to go back to bed with my wife! Bye bye!

Until next week...

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD.

Today's 'Word Puzzle' Answer: INSULTED

TODAY'S 'DO YOU KNOW?' ANSWER: b. God does not "owe" us anything. In verse 15, the landowner says, "Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money?" In the same way, God is free to dispense His grace and salvation as He sees fit. He does not "owe" us anything because we have been righteous in our own eyes. There is nothing we can do that will place God in our debt; every good thing we receive is purely a gift.

This is a complicated parable that can be interpreted in various ways. One common interpretation is that the workers called first represent the Jews. They were the first to hear Jesus' message, but most of them rejected it. Those called last represent the Gentiles. They were the last to hear the message but many accepted it. This interpretation fits nicely with Matthew 19:30 and 20:16, "Many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first." Many of the parables contain at least two sets of lessons: a lesson about specific situations of Jesus' time, as above, and a more general lesson which will apply for all time. The three general lessons given here are not certain, but are among the most common interpretations.
