It bothers me that the Church as a whole, has rejected the reality of Gods Natural State. Jesus promised that signs shall follow, they don’t.
Is God a man that He should lie?
Oh, we believe it is possible for God to do the Supernatural, but for some reason He isn’t.
We prefer to think, we are in a time of silence, like the Hebrews were before Moses and the Exodus.
Let us take a look at that, why did the Lord finally send Moses with signs, wonders and miracles to save His people?
Was His nap time over, so now, He could save His people…. NO, READ THE BOOK.
Let us look at the words of God, (Jesus in my mind) and the Lord, (the Father), from Exodus 2 and 3.
“It came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.
And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.“
The children signed by reason of the bondage, and they cried.
- The first step to seeing a ministry of power, we need to sigh and cry out. “I cannot stand this life of bondage to sin and shame any longer. I cannot let the lost continue without direction, the sick to suffer, the brokenhearted to mourn. Lord, it is time to act!!!!!”
- God heard their groaning, remembered His promise, had respect for His children, and sent a Savior.
Now let us see what the Father said.
“The Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;
And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.“
- I have seen the affliction of my children
- I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters.
- I know their sorrows
- I have come down to deliver them
- I will bring them to a land of milk and honey
- Their cry has come to Me
- I have seen their oppression
- Come, I will send thee, (Moses), to save my people
He heard their cry, saw their affliction, knew their sorrows….
You see our problem, the reason we do not see the Supernatural Power and might of the Lord, is like the Hebrews, the bondage we are in hasn’t reached the unbearable….
We are fat, dumb and happy, with the little we have. We are satisfied, with who we are and who we allow the Lord to be.
The Lord Jesus is not satisfied, I am sure He is frustrated in His love for us. He gave us the means and way to victory in this life, and we leave it wrapped on the shelf, unopened and dusty.
Buried and forgotten. You have read it here before, the Gifts of the Spirit are the Talents the Master left His Church. (You and me). To use to build His Church, to INCREASE HIS KINGDOM.
What is wrong with us that we do not learn to use the one Talent given to all that believed. (READ IT AGAIN) They all spoke with tongues. It isn’t just for use in public, it is how our spirit, communicates with Gods Spirit, perfectly, read Romans 8, that is how all things work together for good.
In Jude it tell us we build up our most Holy Faith. If your Church Doctrine says this passed away… THROW IT OUT, BELIEVE GODS WORD, ASK FOR THE GIFTS… WALK IN THE POWER AND MIGHT OF THE LORD.
He sent a man, Moses, to free His people. He will send another, could it be you or me? Jesus, wants the world to see, consider, understand and know He is Lord. He has given us that task.
I do not understand how people who claim to love the Lord, can leave His gifts unopened. I desire to walk in all the Lord will give me. I long for His will to be done in my life and in the world.
If Jesus used signs and wonders to attract belivers, why do we think we can do without? Amen
