Jesus – “Consider carefully how you listen”

Background

The Jesus we meet in the bible is a man who admonishes us to listen carefully.

Listen Carefully

  1. The Lesson of the Lamp
    …For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing concealed that will not be known and illuminated.  Pay attention, therefore, to how you listen. Whoever has will be given more, but whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.” ( Luke 8:17-18 )
  2. The Lesson of the Lamp
    …He went on to say, “Pay attention to what you hear. With the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and even more will be added to you. For whoever has will be given more, but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.” Jesus also said, “The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed on the ground.… ( Mark 4:24-26 )
  3. The Purpose of Jesus’ Parables
    …He replied, “The knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. This is why I speak to them in parables: ‘Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.’…
    ( Matthew 13:11-13 )
  4. John  12
    • Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.  ( John 12:35 )
    • While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.  ( John 12:36 )
    • That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?  ( John 12:38 )
    • Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,  ( John 12:39 )
    • He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.  ( John 12:40 )
  5. “‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding;
    be ever seeing, but never perceiving’.
    Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts,
    and turn and be healed.”
    ( Isaiah 6:9-10 )

Guilt in God’s eyes

  1. The Murmuring of Miriam and Aaron
    • Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married (for he had married a Cushite woman);( Numbers 12:1 )
    • He said, “Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, shall make Myself known to him in a vision. I shall speak with him in a dream.
      Numbers 12:6 )
    • I speak with him face to face, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the form of the LORD. Why then were you unafraid to speak against My servant Moses?
      Numbers 12:8 )
  2. Job’s Final Appeal
    …If I have rejoiced at my enemy’s ruin, or exulted when evil befell him— I have not allowed my mouth to sin by asking for his life with a curse— if the men of my house have not said, ‘Who is there who has not had his fill?’—…
    Job 31:29-31 )
  3. Abraham, Sarah, and Abimelech
    • But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife. ( Gen. 20:3)
    • But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation? ( Gen. 20:4 )
    • Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this. ( Gen. 20:5 )
    • And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her. ( Gen. 20:6 )
    • And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife’s sake.  ( Gen. 20:11 )
    • And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father’s house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou shalt shew unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.  ( Gen. 20:13 )
    • And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes ( Gen. 20:16 )

Spiritual Covering

Senses

There are quite a few senses involved in Spiritual covering.

Inclusive are seeing with our eyes, hearing with our ears, understanding with our hearts,  and turning; in essence repenting.

And, God ultimately stepping in to heal us.

Understanding the “dark night of the soul”

Link

Understanding the ‘dark night of the soul’ The feeling of spiritual emptiness, or being abandoned by God, is natural in the process of growing closer to Christ Emily Stimpson Chapman OSV Newsweekly

When the world looked at the face of Blessed Teresa of Kolkata, it saw pure, simple joy. Then, in 2007, 10 years after Blessed Teresa’s death, a collection of her private letters was published. Suddenly, the joy that the tiny sister from Albania once radiated seemed anything but simple.

As the letters revealed, for the entirety of her public ministry, the founder of the Missionaries of Charity endured unceasing feelings of desolation and abandonment by God.

“I am told God lives in me,” she wrote in 1957, “and yet the reality of darkness and coldness and emptiness is so great that nothing touches my soul.”

For some, the letters became a source of scandal. But for those familiar with the stages of spiritual growth, they served as a profound testimony to Blessed Teresa’s sanctity. In those decades of desolation, she lived what St. John of the Cross termed, the “dark night of the soul,” which was the title of a poem he wrote.

The timing and duration of Mother Teresa’s dark night was unusual — and markedly so. But the fact that she encountered a dark night wasn’t. Every Christian, on their way to God, must pass through his or her own dark night. So, what is (and isn’t) the dark night of the soul?

It is necessary

Every fallen human being has disordered desires and attachments. We love what we shouldn’t love, or we love what we should but in the wrong way. We seek our own comfort, our own pleasure, our own will. We value what we want more than we value what God wants. We do wrong, even if only in our hearts.

But we can’t do wrong and stand before God. We can’t even want to do wrong and stand before God. A prerequisite for seeing God face to face is that every attachment to sin, both in our lives and in our hearts, must be broken. If we want to become saints, we have to desire only God’s will. And we have to desire God’s will not out of fear of hell, but rather out of love for heaven, out of love for God. Some of that breaking we do, as we learn to avoid vice and pursue virtue. But some of that breaking only God can do. The dark night of the soul is, in part, how he does that. By seemingly withdrawing all spiritual consolations — all the little comforts and supports that typically come from pursuing a relationship with him — and allowing an almost crushing sense of abandonment to descend upon us, he purifies our desires and prepares us for heaven.

It is unique

The dark night of the soul looks different in different lives. Laypersons don’t necessarily experience the dark night the way religious do. Nor do active religious necessarily experience the dark night the way contemplatives do. Some people experience it primarily through external circumstances. They find themselves persecuted or afflicted. In the midst of those afflictions, all calls for help go unanswered. To the person passing through this type of dark night, it feels like God has left them to deal with their cross on their own.

Others experience the dark night through temptations: Temptations to pride, vanity, anger, sexual sin, and even unbelief assail them. Then, there are those who experience the dark night of the soul mainly through inner desolation: The gates of heaven seem barred against them, and no matter how much they pray, no consolation seemingly comes. Lastly, there are those who experience the dark night as a combination of all three: trials, temptations and abandonment.

Likewise, for some, the dark night comes but once. For others, it comes many times. Usually, it lasts for only a short while. Occasionally, it lasts much longer. But when it finally ends, it ends for good. A definitive work has been accomplished in the soul.

It is unpredictable

The dark night of the soul doesn’t come at the beginning of one’s journey to God. Traditionally, spiritual directors identify three primary stages (or ways) of growth in holiness. The first is the purgative way, where we break habits of vice, acquire habits of virtue and learn to live a Catholic life. The second is the illuminative way, where we grow in virtue, charity and the life of prayer. And the third is the unitive way, where our wills and hearts move in perfect harmony with God’s.

Near the end of the purgative stage, we experience a type of dark night — a time of trial and affliction where it feels as if God no longer loves us. This dark night, however, is not the dark night of the soul. Rather, it’s the dark night of the senses.

In the dark night of the senses, God purifies us of our attachments to the things of the world — physical comfort, physical pleasure, material success, popular acclaim — as well as of our consolations in prayer. Sorrows afflict us, and things that used to comfort us — food, sex, shopping, compliments, even the liturgy — no longer do. Through this dark night, God prepares us for the illuminative way and a deeper, more contemplative life of prayer.

The dark night of the soul occurs at the end of the illuminative way, as we prepare to enter the unitive way. During this dark night, God roots out our deepest attachments to sin and self, and the desolation that accompanies that rooting out is overwhelming and crushing. More than just a lack of consolation, this dark night plunges a soul into an abyss of darkness and nothingness, essentially revealing to us what we are without God and preparing us to not only carry our crosses, but to love our crosses and carry them joyfully in union with Christ.

It isn’t depression

From the outside, depression and the dark night of the soul bear a striking resemblance to one another. And they’re not entirely separate things. As St. John of the Cross noted long ago, depression (or as they called it in the 17th century, melancholia) can go hand in hand with a dark night, whether by exacerbating it or resulting from it.

But while clinical depression is triggered by an objectively sad event (losing a loved one, fatal illness, etc.) or by a biochemical problem, the dark night of the soul is purely an act of God; it is God working in our souls to draw us closer to him.

Likewise, while depression weighs down both body and soul, eventually rendering those who suffer from it unable to go about the normal business of their life, throughout the dark night, the spirit stays strong, and those suffering through it can perform great works of charity and service. They remain active and don’t experience the same temptations to total self-loathing or suicide that those struggling with depression suffer, nor do they lose their faith in the midst of the dark night. Belief remains.

It isn’t evil

The dark night of the soul is not an evil to be endured; it’s a good for which we should be grateful. Of course, it doesn’t always seem that way. The thought of plunging into a spiritual abyss and losing all the sweetness in our relationship with God strikes few as appealing. But neither does surgery. Having cancer removed from our bodies isn’t a fun process. Nevertheless, we submit to the surgeon’s knife readily and quickly, knowing that the sooner we have the surgery, the sooner we can live a healthy, full life.

What’s true on the natural level is true on the supernatural level. If we want to become the people God made us to be and live the lives he made us to live, we must let him excise sin and unhealthy attachments from our souls. There’s no getting around it. Before we can enter heaven, it has to happen. It can happen in this life or it can happen in the next — in purgatory. But here is better. For the sooner we let God root out unhealthy attachments, the sooner we can get on with the business of being saints.

And there’s no better business than that.

      • Profile :- October 2018. The Pope Video: The Devil is a seducer. This is why, without our knowing it, we let him enter into our lives. This also applies to the life of the Church. This is why the Pope is asking us this month of October to pray the Rosary of the Virgin Mary and the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel to fight against the power of evil and to protect the Church. Will we all join in with this request? “The Devil presents himself with great power. He brings you gifts. But you don’t know what’s inside. I renew the invitation to everyone to pray the Rosary every day in October, ending with the antiphon “We fly to thy patronage” and the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, to repel the attacks of the Devil who wants to divide the Church.”

Scriptures

David’s Tabernacle

Amos 9:11-12

In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.

Acts 15:16-17

“‘After this I will return,

and I will rebuild the tent of David that has fallen;

I will rebuild its ruins,

and I will restore it,

that the remnant of mankind may seek the Lord,

and all the Gentiles who are called by my name,

says the Lord, who makes these things known from of old.

1 Corinthians 10:32-33

Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.

Ephesians 2:14-16

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.

Spiritual Warfare

Ephesians 6:19

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel …

Holy Spirit

Zephaniah 3:9-10

For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language,
That they all may call on the name of the Lord,
To serve Him with one accord.
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
My worshipers,
The daughter of My dispersed ones,
Shall bring My offering.

God’s will (  by David Patty )

Galatians 5:25

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives

1 Thessalonians 4:3

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication

1 Peter 2:13-15 ( Submission to Authority )

For the Lord’s sake, submit to all human authority—whether the king as head of state, or the officials he has appointed.
For the king has sent them to punish those who do wrong and to honor those who do right.
It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you.

Acts 13:2-4  (Paul’s First Missionary Journey)

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,
“Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.

 

Acts 15:28 ( The Letter to the Gentile Believers )

…”Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will also report the same things by word of mouth. “For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay upon you no greater burden than these essentials: that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication; if you keep yourselves free from such things, you will do well. Farewell.”

Acts 16:6-10 – Kept by the Spirit

And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia.
And when they had come up to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them.
So, passing by Mysia, they went down to Troas.
And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” And when Paul had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.

Quotes

Joe Jordan

  1. If you are working in this area, I think you need some protection.  You really need some kind of covering.
    There are some kind of forces that you need to be protected from.  That is not going to help you, it isn’t helping you right now.
  2. You already have what you need
  3. Help someone else get free

 

Pastor Robert Morris

  1. Is it possible that you are losing some battles because you are not
    • building up yourself spiritually
    • you are not putting up the whole armor
    • using your spirit to pray, you are only praying through your soul

 

Dave Patty

  1. God makes his plan in broad sweeps
  2. Gods reveals his will in steps
  3. God waits for our obedience before revealing the next step
  4. He might tell you about his destination, but waits for you
  5. If you for looking for the whole plan, you likely will not find it
  6. How do we discern his will
    • His Moral Will
    • The Spirit of God
      • The Spirit of God said ( Acts 13:2-4 )
      • Seemed good to us and the Spirit ( Acts 15:28 )
      • Having being kept by the Spirit ( Acts 16:6-10 )
    • The Mind of God
    • People of God
      • But with those who take advice is wisdom ( Proverbs 13:10 )
      • Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established ( Proverbs 15:22 )
    • Sovereignty of God
      • I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) . [ Romans 1:13 ]
      • But I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost; for a wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries ( 1 Corinthians 16:9 )

 

Joseph Sciambra

  1. God humbles us, and reminds us sometimes of our past, to bring us closer to him, and to let us know how much we need him

 

Prayer

Here is Joe Jordan’s Salutation to our one and only God…

ברוך אתה ה’ אלהינו, מלך העולם…

Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu, melekh ha’olam…

Blessed are You, LORD our God, King and Ruler of the universe...”

Prayer & Meditation

Forward

My pastor just started a month long series on prayer.

Everyone seems to be on the same page lately.

I suppose that it is how it is supposed to be.

Yet, the convergence is kind of scary.

David Platt, Added on Sept 11th, 2015

David Joseph Platt  is currently the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board, and he is also the author of the New York Times Best Seller Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream. He released a follow-up book, Radical Together: Unleashing the People of God for the Purpose of God in April, 2011.  And in February, 2013, he released Follow Me: A Call to Die. a Call to Live.  Platt recently founded a resource ministry, Radical.net, dedicated to serving the church and making disciples of all nations.

He also served at Edgewater Baptist Church in New Orleans and resided in a parsonage when Hurricane Katrina hit, flooding the parsonage.

At the age of 26, Platt was hired to lead the congregation of The Church at Brook Hills, and he became known as the youngest megachurch pastor in America. He said, “I believe that God has uniquely created every one of His people to impact the world. Some may count it as idealistic, but I believe it is thoroughly biblical, rooted in Psalm 67:1-2, yet covering Scripture from beginning to end. God is in the business of blessing His people so that His ways and His salvation might be made known among all people.”

He holds to a continuationist view, meaning that the Biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit did not cease with the apostles and are operating today for the edification of the church.
