We do not seem to be connected to the truth of the Gospel.
Oh, all the different factions, groups, the Denominations, all claim that they have the truth. The whole truth and nothing but the truth.
But does anyone?
No, we all miss the mark, some more then others. Even the Full Gospel Churches, do not seem to teach the Full Counsel of God, if they ever did.
The Bible gives us many promises, that we seem to believe, once were, or will be, true, someday.
We do not see, what was once lived, and experienced. We do not expect to see it in our lifetimes.
The Signs, Wonders and Miracles of the Bible, passed with the Apostles, and we are living in another, silent time.
Just as it was between the Old and New Testament, or during the 430 years of captivity the Hebrew people suffered.
God is quiet, He has given us the Bible, it is God’s final word.
Healings, Deliverance, evil spirits, angels, even the hand of God, no longer reaches out to touch His Saints. We are on our own.
I do not accept, that God was silent now or at anytime.
It just took 400 years for someone to notice and Examine the burning bush.
As soon as the Lord saw, that Moses was paying attention, God spoke.
Are we paying attention?
It saws in Genisis 12 that the Lordhad said to Abram get thee out of Thy country. Had said, is the key.
Abram, did not just leave, the Lord spoke to Him several times, till he understood and obeyed.
How often must He speak before we hear and obey?
We no longer follow the fire or the cloud, we follow Luther, Calvin, Wesley or some other person, who at one time, maybe even yesterday, followed the Lord.
(Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, Joel Osteen, Ravi Zacharias, our Pastors…)
They received a piece of biblical revelation and built a belief system on it. Not realizing that was the start of revelation and knowledge and not the end.
We must all, study to shew ourselves approved, be workmen, rightly deviding the Word of Truth.
We must work out our Salvation, in fear and trembling. Knowing ourselves the truth of the Word.
All of God’s promises are for us, today. The Signs, Wonders and Miracles.
We just need to believe and obey, to walk and work in them. As the leaders of our Churches once did.
