HEARING FROM GOD

WAITING ON THE LORD

Noise! NoiSE!! NOISE!!! Our ears, our brains, are so battered by noise that quietness, stillness, is a strange and uncomfortable phenomenon in our life.

Of course, in those societies where people live in close proximity to each other, sound is an automatic accompaniment to of all life. Can you believe that there are hotels in New Zealand that play city sounds into their rooms at night so that their tourist guests can sleep!

Even in church, in todays rush, rush, world, our senses are constantly battered by noise and activity. Worship, drama, preaching, even prayers and offerings are sound rich and contemplative poor.

No wonder we don't hear from God. Between the busyness of business, the TV, radio, phone, entertainment and much much more, there is little chance or time to hear from God.

We too, in line with the worldly ways of instant gratification, have developed a demanding approach to God. We demand results and we want them now!

Yet that simply is not the way our God works.

Some weeks ago we quoted the story of Elijah on the mountain, where he went to hear from the Lord. There was earthquakes and fire, but the Lord was not in these. Rather He came as a gentle whisper.

12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. (1 Kings 19:12)

It5 was then that he received his instructions from the Lord.

15 The LORD said to him, “Go back the way you came, and go to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint Hazael king over Aram. 16 Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah to succeed you as prophet. 17 Jehu will put to death any who escape the sword of Hazael, and Elisha will put to death any who escape the sword of Jehu. 18 Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and all whose mouths have not kissed him.” (1 Kings 19:15-18)

The Lord speaks to us in the quiet and stillness as a believer seeks Him. As one empties oneself of the noise and rush of the world to tune in to the Holy Spirit's frequency, so we make ourselves available to hear from Him.

Of course, as many of us have experienced, He does not always talk to us the first time. Or the second or third, for that matter! But if we persevere, in faith, we will finally hear.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (James 1:2-4)

James quoted the example of Job.

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 5:11)

The principle of waiting is well established in Scripture. Abraham too, not only had to wait upon the Lord, but had to wait again for the promises to be fulfilled.

15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised. (Hebrews 6:15)

The Lord may speak to you today, tomorrow, or sometime later, as He decides. If we seek Him, He will find us!

Earlier, I shared how the Lord spoke to me while working in the flower fields and told me, a young Christian, to start this ministry. As I had a business, with people working for me, I said to the Lord, 'I will work half a day and do the ministry for half a day.'

The afternoon of the first day, I had not a clue what to do, so went and sat on the couch in our living room and waited on the Lord to tell me how to go about it! It was a test of faith, for sure! What would I say to Kathy if He didn't talk to me? I was pretty ignorant, I can assure you!

As I sat there on the couch, the Lord started giving me an allegory about two marathon runners. (I was running marathons in those days! Sadly, not now!) It was a 3 part story about making the decision to enter the race, the training, and the race itself. Over the next week He dictated the story and then explained the meaning.

Following that I started to write the 3 part course, 'Walking With Jesus'. It wasn't until I had just about completed writing the course that I realised the 3 parts of the allegory fitted perfectly, 1 corresponding to each of the 3 parts of the course. I was amazed!

You can download the allegory at THE TWO MARATHONERS

My friend, waiting upon the Lord is a principle we have all too often set aside, in the midst of our super busy, modern lifestyle. Yet, if we want to deepen our relationship with our Saviour, Master and Lord, waiting upon Him in quietness is an essential part of walking with Jesus.

I know, I fail all too often. How about you?

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

FROM THE WORD

The Lord Appears to Elijah

"And the word of the LORD came to him: “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He replied, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, broken down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too.” The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.”
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.
Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He replied, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, broken down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too.” The LORD said to him, “Go back the way you came, and go to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint Hazael king over Aram. Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah to succeed you as prophet. Jehu will put to death any who escape the sword of Hazael, and Elisha will put to death any who escape the sword of Jehu. Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and all whose mouths have not kissed him.”" (1 Kings 19:9b-18)

Trials and Temptations

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does. The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position. But the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wild flower. For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business. Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created." (James 1:2-18)

The Certainty of God’s Promise

"When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.” And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised. Men swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument. Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek." (Hebrews 6:15-20)

DAVID'S DOODLINGS

THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS

606. To think about God is stupendous. To believe we are Him, disastrous!

607. To think is good, to feel fantastic, but it is what we do that is most important in God’s sight.

608. Thoughts and feelings lead one astray, but God’s word is an anchor to the soul.

609. We may think, we may feel, but all is wasted unless we act.

610. Men think, women feel, God acts.

611. Result of the game of life. God’s Word 100 v Thoughts and Feelings 0.

612. Satan corrupts thoughts and feelings, but never God’s Word.

613. To ‘be’ is what it is all about.

614. People’s feelings ebb and flow with the breeze, but God’s Word is rock solid.

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." ***

264. THE LESSON OF LOT'S WIFE
In a Sunday school classroom, a teacher was telling the story of Sodom and Gomorrah to her children. She explained that Lot was told to take his wife and flee, but then Lot's wife looked back and was turned to a pillar of salt.

A boy in the class asked, "What happened to the flea?"

263. SERMONS
The congregation liked their new clergyman, but were somewhat puzzled by his speaking style. His first sermon ran only 8 minutes; the second Sunday he spoke for 45 minutes; the third week he rattled on for an hour-and-a-half. That was enough for the Board to summon him for a little chat.

To their relief, Wilkerson had a ready explanation. "The Saturday before the first sermon, I had my teeth pulled and my mouth was still terribly sore. But, by the time a week had gone by, I'd gotten used to my new dentures." Here the minister paused, and blushed deeply. "And as for last Sunday . . . well, I'm afraid that I picked up my wife's set of teeth by mistake!"

262. WATER TO WINE
A Lutheran minister is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut.

The state trooper smells alcohol on the minister's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?"

"Just water," says the minister.

The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?"

The minister looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"

FACTS FOR FUN

LAST WEEKS QUESTION: Is there violence in Grimm’s fairy tales?

ANSWER: More than a little! You may recall that doves peck the eyes out of Cinderella's stepsisters, that Snow White's step mother arranges a ‘hit’ on her young stepdaughter, and that Sleeping Beauty's suitors bled to death on the hedge surrounding her castle. And that’s just some! Grimm’s fairy tales are full of infanticide, murder, mutilation, cannibalism, and incest. But they're also rich with heroism and adventure and generally end with the bad guys getting their just desserts. (PC lovers beware!)

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: What is the real name of the painting now known as the ‘Mona Lisa’?

Answer Next Week.

SOME FUN FACTS

148. ALL INCLUSIVE
'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog’ is commonly believed to be the only English sentence devised to include all the letters of the alphabet. However, typesetters and designers employ a shorter version. ‘Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.’ (Seems a lot shorter but is only 3 letters different in length.)

149. INFLATION
In 1915, the average annual family income in the United States was $687 a year. (Still greater than many people elsewhere experience today.)

150. TWO TRUE
Most of us have two true vocal chords. We also have two false vocal chords, which have no direct role in producing sound. (Are double-minded people, more accurately, double voiced?)

95 THESES to the MODERN EVANGELICAL CHURCH

-by Greg Gordon.
[Founder of Sermonindex.net]

(These rang a bell with me! Maybe they will with you too. - David)

1. The “church” at large has forgotten that the chief end of man is to glorify
God. (Rom 16:27; 1Cor 6:20; Mt 6:9; 1Cor 10:31)

2. Christians ignore most of the methods, practices and principles found in the
book of Acts. (Acts 2:42,44; Acts 2:46; Acts 2:38)

3. Many treat “church” like any other social club or sports event that they
might attend. (Acts 2:46; Heb 10:25; Acts 1:14)

4. We’ve made Christianity about the individual rather than the community of
believers. (Rom 12:5; 1Cor 12:12; 2Tim 4:16)

5. In most “churches” the priesthood of all believers isn’t acknowledged and
the role of pastor is abused. (1Pt 2:9; 1Cor 12:12; Eph 4:11-13)

6. The “church” as a whole has lost the concept of their being grafted into the
promises given to Israel. (Rom 11:15, 17-18, 20, 25)

7. There needs to be a recovery of teaching the whole counsel of God,
especially in expository form. (Acts 20:27; 1Tim 4:6, 2Tim 2:15)

8. We take it too lightly that we have the blessing and honor of having God’s
Scriptures in our possession. (Ps 119:16; Acts 13:44; Neh 8:9)

9. There has never been more access to the Word of God, yet so little reading
of it. (1Tim 4:13; Neh 8:1-3; Ps 119:59)

10. Some read the Scriptures to attain knowledge, but do not practice what they
read. (Jam 1:22; Mt 7:21; 3Jn 4)

11. Worship has become an idol in many “churches”. The music often resembles
that of the world. (Amos 5:23; Phil 4:8; 1Jn 5:21)

12. The world is shaping the views of the “church” more than the “church”
shaping the world. (Rom 12:2; Mt 5:13; 1Cor 1:22-23)

13. The “church” spends more money on dog food than on missions. (2Cor 9:6; Lk
21:2; Acts 4:34-35)

14. We take lightly the cost of discipleship laid out by Jesus Christ and do
not deny our lives. (Lk 14:33; Lk 14:26-27; Mt 8:19-20)

15. There is a lack of true discipleship and making others to be obedient
disciples. (Mt 28:20; 2Tim 2:2; 2Tim 2:14)

16. Many subscribe to the error that parts of life are to be spiritual while
others are to be secular. (1Pt 4:2; Col 3:3; 1Jn 2:6)

0.0000 THE COCKROACH
A man is sitting at home one evening when the doorbell rings.

When he answers the door, a 6 foot tall cockroach is standing there.

The cockroach immediately punches him between the eyes and scampers off.

The next evening, the man is sitting at home when the doorbell rings.

When he answers the door, the cockroach is there again.

This time, it punches him, kicks him and karate chops him before running
away.

The third evening, the man is sitting at home when the doorbell rings.

When he answers the door, the cockroach is there yet again.

It leaps at him and stabs him several times before making off.

The gravely injured man manages to crawl to the telephone and calls 911
for an ambulance.

He is rushed to intensive care and they save his life.

The next morning, the doctor is doing his rounds, and asks the man what

BIBLE TRIVIA (Manners and Customs - Houses)

A LIFE OF AGRICULTURE.....

..... took the place of the nomadic life after the Israelites had been in Canaan for some time. Houses began to take the place of tents. The home of the common people was a one-roomed shelter. People spent as much time as possible outdoors. The Hebrew word for house is 'bayith', which means shelter. It served only as a place to shelter after spending the day outside. God also, is referred to as a 'shelter' or 'refuge'. (Psalm 61:3, Isaiah 4:6)

Oppression of Chinese House Churches Linked to Nobel Peace Prize Announcement

by Michael Ireland, ASSIST News Service

BEIJING, CHINA - Chinese authorities are stepping up their campaign of harassment and oppression in the wake of the Nobel Peace prize winner announcement and the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization.

ChinaAid says the government’s oppression of Beijing Zhongfu Holy Mountain Institute has been steadily increasing. It says the “Holy Mountain” magazine department was raided by Beijing Public Security Bureau on October 27, 2010.

ChinaAid reports that the persecution of house churches and non-governmental organizations in Beijing was planned by authorities, after it was announced that a Chinese citizen had won the Nobel Peace Prize and the recent convocation of the Lausanne Congress in Cape Town, South Africa. A large delegation representing the Chinese church was stopped from attending the Congress.

"These attacks are purposely set up to frame Dr. Fan Yafeng, making it seem that he is conducting an illegal business," said ChinaAid in a media release.

"ChinaAid solemnly warns the Chinese government that any form of persecution of Dr. Fan will bring nothing but rebuke from Chinese society and the international community; this is a futile fight. Cease the persecution of Dr.Fan and his contemporaries before it is too late," the organization said in its news release.

Pastor Bob Fu, President of ChinaAid, is calling on Christians from China and all over the world to support Dr. Fan and others under persecution. "We will keep a close watch on this situation," he said.

A DAVID MUSING

Last week we had my friend 'Asher from India' (as we introduce him) staying with us. I met him 9 years ago now, over the internet, after he received the very first issue of PGIM that was published.

Since that time a friendship of like minds has developed, and grown stronger as the years pass by. He is an internationalist Indian, something that is not very common.

I have been to India twice while he has visited New Zealand five times. So, of course, I refer to him as my rich Indian friend, for he comes here more than I go there!

Ironically, it is an interesting reality that it is easier for someone from the Third World to visit the West, than the other way round. When you visit these countries you have to meet your own expenses - and possibly, theirs as well! However.....

Asher is now in Fiji, ministering there and searching out the ancestry of the Fijian Indians (half the population) who went to Fiji to work in the sugar cane fields, generations ago. Apparently many came from the area of south India where Asher lives.

While we have many acquaintances in life, we have far fewer close friends. Made me think (always dangerous!) about my, about our, relationship with Jesus. Is He merely an acquaintance, or a true friend with whom we can share both the highs and the lows of our life?

Makes one think, doesn't it!

PS: Asher looks typically 'Indian serious' in this photo. For, as he tells me, Indians don't have a sense of humour. However, he is developing one now, for it is impossible to survive in Australia and New Zealand without one! Our contribution to an Indian - a smile!

Until next week.......

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD.

His servant and yours
