HEARING FROM GOD

THROUGH ANOTHER PERSON

While this is perhaps obvious, it can also be quite difficult.

For experience has shown me that there are lots of people in the church who won't hear what God is saying through others, while there are others who hold onto every word and run this way and that, without discerning whether words spoken are truly from God.

Unfortunately there are many in the church willing to give advice, most of which they don't apply in their own lives! Surely you know people like that? Of course, it is not you or me - or is it?

Discernment is a necessary part of our walk with Jesus. This is confirmed in both the Old Testament.....

21 My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; 22 they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. 23 Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; (Proverbs 3:21-3)

.....and in the New.

9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:9-11)

Before we 'give advice' to others we need to be sure that what we are saying is of the Lord.

36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. 37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:36-7)

In saying this, God does talk to us through others. This happened in the case of Peter.

Cornelius Calls for Peter

10 At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment. 2 He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. 3 One day at about three in the afternoon he had a vision. He distinctly saw an angel of God, who came to him and said, “Cornelius!” 4 Cornelius stared at him in fear. “What is it, Lord?” he asked. The angel answered, “Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God. 5 Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter. 6 He is staying with Simon the tanner, whose house is by the sea.” 7 When the angel who spoke to him had gone, Cornelius called two of his servants and a devout soldier who was one of his attendants. 8 He told them everything that had happened and sent them to Joppa. (Acts 10:1-8)


I will share with you two notable occasions in my life.

When I was a young Christian, the Lord gave me a message for a church, not my own, one that was quite difficult to for me present and the people to receive. After approaching the Pastor concerned and obtaining his agreement, I fasted for 10 days, (my longest fast) before the day arrived. During this time I had a telephone call from an elder in my church. Anne told me that the Lord had told her to contact me and give me a verse from James that complemented the message the Lord had given me perfectly. It was Mercy triumphs over judgment! (James 2:12b)

Before our last major move from the city of Tauranga to the Hawkes Bay, where we still live, I asked the Lord for independent confirmation that what He had told me directly was the right thing to do, to confirm that I had heard from Him correctly. Those who know WWJM teaching, will know that God is a God of 3's. There are patterns of 3 right through the Bible. Shortly after, I received a call from a lady in our church who had no idea what we were going to do who said the Lord had told her to contact me and say “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21b). Then another lady rang, completely out of the blue. The Lord told me to ring and say “This is the way; walk in it.”. What confirmation! "Okay Lord, I will do what you say, but you know how I like things in 3's." Nothing more happened. We arranged to shift, for 2 confirmations was pretty good. Our friends put on a going away party for us. My best friend made a speech. And you will likely guess what he said! Yes, it was, “This is the way; walk in it.” I cried. Thank you Lord for your confirmation and for getting these faithful people to speak to me on Your behalf.

Yes indeed, God does speak to us through others. May we be open to hear from Him when He does.

But most of the time, He talks to me through the Bible.

FROM THE WORD

"My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared. Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back later; I’ll give it tomorrow”—
when you now have it with you. Do not plot harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you. Do not accuse a man for no reason— when he has done you no harm. Do not envy a violent man or choose any of his ways, for the LORD detests a perverse man
but takes the upright into his confidence." (Proverbs 3:21-32)

Thanksgiving and Prayer

"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart; for whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me. God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God." (Philippians 1:3-11)

Jesus and Beelzebub

"Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? And if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can rob his house. “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”" (Matthew 12:22-37)

DAVID'S DOODLINGS

KNOWING GOD

351. The more I discover about God the more I realise there is to know.

352. The closer I get to God, the more I realise how big He is and how small I am.

353. While God graciously accepts me as I am, His desire is for me to become more like Him.

354. When God moves, the results are beyond our imagination. Why then do we try and do His work ourselves?

CRANWELL'S CARTOON

THE CALLING OF THE FIRST DISCIPLES
18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him. 21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

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." ***

257. THEY WONT LEAVE
The year was 1492 A.D., and the citizens of Rome wanted to expel the Jews. The Pope, being somewhat more openminded than his followers, decided to give the Jews a chance to be heard on this question, and challenged them to a public debate. The elders of the Jewish community considered the matter carefully.

"We have many learned and erudite men among us," they reasoned, "but the Pope is also learned and erudite. By learning and erudition alone, we may not prevail. Perhaps we may prevail by common sense." So they chose the most commonsense man among them, a crusty old fellow named Moishe, to represent them. Moishe agreed, but on one condition: The debate must be held in silence, without words.

Surprisingly, the Pope agreed. On the appointed day, the Pope and Moishe took the stage and seated themselves before the crowd.

The Pope held up three fingers.
Moishe held up one finger.

The Pope pointed with his three fingers to the four horizons: East, South, West, and North.
Moishe pointed with his one finger to the ground at their feet.

After some moments, the Pope held up the elements of the Eucharist -- the wine and the wafer.
Moishe immediately held up an apple.

Suddenly, the Pope stood up and declared, "The debate is concluded. The Jews have won. The Jews can stay."

Some days later, a cardinal finally got up the nerve to ask the Pope, "Your Holiness, just what exactly did you and Moishe say to each other?"

"First," began the Pope, "I held up three fingers to symbolize the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Then Moishe held up one finger to represent the essential Unity of God. Okay, so he got me on the first round.

"Next, I pointed to all the horizons to indicate that God is all around us. But Moishe pointed to the ground between us to indicate that God is right here with us. Okay, he got me again.

"Finally, I held up the Eucharist to indicate the redemption of humankind through the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. But Moishe held up the apple to indicate the original sin of Adam and Eve that made that sacrifice necessary. I realized that he was right - that we are all one in Adam, and announced the Jews' victory."

Not long after that, one of the rabbis asked Moishe the same question.

"The Pope," said Moishe, "held up three fingers to say, 'The Jews must leave Rome in three days.' I held up one finger to say, 'Not one Jew will leave.' Then the Pope pointed to the horizons to say, 'The Jews must disperse into the wide world.' I pointed to the ground between us to say, 'We are staying right here!' Then," Moishe shrugged, "he held up his lunch, I held up mine, and it was all over."

256. WHERE'S JESUS?
A Sunday School teacher of preschoolers was concerned that his students might be a little confused about Jesus Christ because of the Christmas season emphasis on His birth. He wanted to make sure they understood that the birth of Jesus occurred for real. He asked his class, "Where is Jesus today?"

Steven raised his hand and said, "He's in heaven."

Mary was called on and answered, "He's in my heart."

Sammy, waving his hand furiously, blurted out, "I know, I know! He's in our bathroom!!!"

The whole class got very quiet, looked at the teacher, and waited for a response. The teacher was completely at a loss for a few very long seconds. Finally, he gathered his wits and asked Sammy how he knew this. Sammy said, "Well...every morning, my father gets up, bangs on the bathroom door, and yells, "Good Lord, are you still in there?!"

They laid on mats or carpets and covered themselves with their outer garments worn during the day. In the tent you would find bags of grain and a hand mill and mortar to pound it. Hanging from the poles would be skin bags or bottles for holding water and other liquids, a leather bucket to draw up water from any available well, an earthen pitcher for the women to carry water, and a few pots, kettles and pans. Serving dishes included mats, platters or larger dishes, and drinking cups. Some used a primitive lamp at nights. If the family had a camel, the camelbags or saddle would have been used as seats.

Kentucky Ministry Takes Church to the People

by Ken Walker, Charisma Online

LOUISVILLE, KY - Servant's Heart in Louisville, Kentucky doesn't hold a traditional Sunday service and doesn't consider itself a church. Instead, the Assemblies of God mission is taking ministry to residents in a low-income community known as Portland.

Teams witness during weekly prayer walks, regularly visit a liquor store to share Scripture with customers and hold home Bible studies. The mission has held clothing and food giveaways and helped sponsor free medical clinics.

"Our focus is to do our best and minister. It takes different forms and shapes," said Dave Heigl, pastor of the sponsoring Servant's Heart Church in suburban Jeffersontown, Kentucky.

Jared Miller, the 24 year-old leader who operates from a church-owned apartment, calls Spirit-led prayer its key. Teams pray for words of knowledge before prayer walks, with God showing them specific situations they will encounter, he said.

Miller estimates nearly 100 people have been healed in recent years of such problems as back ailments, ear pain and depression. "There's so much opportunity, so much spiritual ripeness," said Miller, who supports his family by operating a construction business. "That's why my wife and I moved here."

In addition to penetrating the neighborhood with prayer and scripture, Servant's Heart is attempting to bring dozens of area churches closer together. Bible college student Michael Barger is part of the ministry team at an area Southern Baptist church and a key Servant's Heart participant.

"God has given us so much favor down here," Barger said of the outreach in Portland. "It's more powerful than anything I've ever seen. Many times when someone asks us for prayer, God shows up and it gives us the opportunity to share the gospel."

Larry Stoess, a United Methodist minister who has directed the Portland Promise Center for 15 years, said Servant's Heart is one more sign that God is pricking people's hearts to reach out to the troubled area. Miller and his wife, Brianne, are among several young couples who have moved into the neighborhood and loved Christians, alcoholics and homeless with the same fervor, Stoess said.

"We've been praying for Christian leadership for some time and we're beginning to see that emerge," Stoess said. "With Jared and Brianne, nobody recruited them. They just showed up. It's very encouraging."

Servant's Heart has received a boost from an unusual series of gifts. Since 2007 two men have given Servant's Heart five houses, which have provided shelter to various people, including some with financial struggles. As miraculous as these gifts are, Miller says nothing matches God healing people and bringing the book of Acts to life.

"I had never experienced spontaneous prayer and repentance before," he said of one impromptu prayer circle last year that exceeded his expectations. "I was catching a glimpse of what revival will be like. For people in our neighborhood, we believe that stronger than Sunday morning worship time is a seven-day-a-week connection to the family of God.

A REVELATION OF....... THE AMAZING TABERNACLE OF MOSES

The first modern revelation of the importance of Moses Tabernacle as being the pattern of a godly walk, and one of church development and life, came out of the Latter Rain Movement, after World War 2.

In more recent times the teaching has been neglected, but it is still applicable today. And the Lord is today, giving even more revelation about it, as we move still closer to the end of the age.

Yes, an understanding of Moses Tabernacle is vital for every Christian with a heart to know God and His plans in a deeper way.

I pray that you will find it as illuminating, challenging, yet encouraging, as I have in my life.

WAXING LYRICAL

Before Adam and Eve sinned, there was no need for time, for they had eternity. The tyranny of time is one of the costs of man's fall.

A MATTER OF TIME

Isn’t time such a wonderful thing,
Seems as long as a piece of string.
Not knowing where it begins, or is likely to end,
With so much of it, you can give some to a friend.

In the bright sparkle of youth,
It’s never ending, ’tis the truth!
So much to do, but with all the time in the world,
No hurry to use it! In bed we lie, snugly curled.

Then comes along the responsibilities of life,
Now it’s time to settle down with the wife.
Still the time ahead, it seems so great,
To be lovingly shared, now with a mate.

But soon comes along the patter of little feet,
And suddenly, time is no longer in surfeit!
For now there just are too few hours in the day,
To do all your work, no longer time to play.

The family grows up,
With a cat and a pup.
Then all of a sudden they are leaving home,
For now it’s their turn, the world to roam.

Where did all the years dash?
Disappeared now in a flash!
Yes, time it truly does you con,
Once so much, now all gone.

Then it’s time to do all the things we desire,
As time passes, from our work we may now retire.
But while the mind is willing, the body’s now weak,
For old man time, havoc on our person does wreak.

So the moral of the story, both for woman and man,
Is to use every minute in the best way we can.
For all too soon, time comes to an end,
Then to heaven or hell, it does us send.

A DAVID MUSING

This week I have had the flu. Sickness is an unusual occurrence for me, for I normally keep excellent health (except for a persistent cough I have had for 20 years that doesn't affect me, but drives my wife mad!).

While I have still managed to come to work for most of each day, it has given me a little (necessary) insight into what man people have to endure, much of the time.

While we can't experience everything in order to empathise with people, it is true that we can most easily minister to those who have had similar experiences to us in life. Bankruptcy, sadly, is an area in which I have had too much experience, but through it, have helped others going through this situation. Yes, the sun still comes up in the morning, even though we may think our world has ended!

God has drawn the 'unusual', and often hurt, people to Himself. There is a huge variety of experience within the wider body of Christ. We must be willing to share our life experiences, our ups and downs, with others, as a testimony of what Jesus has done for us and how He can help each one to deal with the unfortunate circumstances life throws at us all.

Let us never forget that our God is real, practical, ready and waiting to help and support us through the journey that is life.

What is your testimony today?

Until next week.......

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD.

His servant and yours
