Total Inadequacy!

Volume 40

October 2017

Number 10

Beloved:

The Prophet of Biblical days was very descriptive in his writings. He was able, under the ministry of the Holy Spirit, to paint tremendous Word Pictures in his message. Backed by “Thus Saith The Lord” authority, these word picture messages became Mighty instruments in the hands of Holy God. Note this word picture from the Old Testament prophet Isaiah: “For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it; and the covering narrower than he can wrap himself in it” (Isaiah 28:20 KJV).

What a picture of Total Inadequacy! Beloved, I believe with all my being this verse of scripture pictures the condition of our Lord’s churches today! Many, if not most, of our churches are nothing more than Spiritual Ghettos with Spiritual poverty abounding on every side. For the most part, what we are doing in the Local Churches is Totally Inadequate when it comes to our Lord’s Command: “Go Ye Into All The World, And Preach The Gospel To Every Creature” (Mark 16:15 KJV).

For the answer to this Total Inadequacy, we must turn to (1) MAN, or (2) GOD. Our HELP must be Human or Divine!

(A) Man’s Answer--SEMINARS! God’s ANSWER--Supplications. I Timothy 2:12 KJV: “I exhort therefore that FIRST of all, Supplications...” It won’t be long until we will be having Seminars on “How to have Seminars.” No dear ones, it’s not more Seminars but Prayer Meetings (Supplication) that are going to provide the kind of SPIRITUAL HELP we so desperately need. 

(B) Man’s Answer--WORKSHOPS! God’s ANSWER--WORSHIP! The analysis of the MIND is nothing if the HEART is not moved. More things are learned in WORSHIP than in WORKSHOPS! There are realities the HEART perceives that come via other routes than REASON. In reality, NOTHING is learned from GOD without the attitude of WORSHIP. His Grace and Glory must Consume us Before we start to think as HE does. 

(C) Man’s Answer--We must get the Ear of Modern Man! God’s ANSWER--You must get the Ear of ETERNAL Holy God! Only as we get the Ear of Holy God will we get the ear of Modern Man. 

On and on we can go to state THE DIFFERENCE between Man’s Answer and God’s ANSWER TO THE SPIRITUAL CONDITION OF His Churches. The Bottom LINE however is that we (HIS PEOPLE) DESPERATELY Need a Genuine Heaven-Sent REVIVAL.

Thank YOU Beloved for YOUR Love, Prayers and Gifts. I love YOU dearly in JESUS. 

Now a word from HIS WORD: “O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy”--Habakkuk 3:2 KJV.
