Speaking Loudly to God

Standing In Line

Standing in line picking lunch for the family earlier today, I met a man with a cross on his neck.

I asked him about his walk.

Cross Around Our Necks

I figure if you have a cross around your neck, you better have a good story.

Nothing New

He looked at me and said No, this is not a new story.

It started has a kid.

Grand Mother is a Jehovah Witness.

He is Catholic.

Just last week, he had his son baptized.

Over a girl

A few weeks ago, one of his good friends posted on Facebook, how he was going to end it all.

The friend and his girl were having problems.

He said this is a big man.

And, he has been training him for MMA.

He got him in the gym the next Tuesday and he promised they will go walk the lake afterwards.

Girl Issues

He broke his friend down.

Girl issues are peachy.

Having to worry about paying mortgages, striving for your young son to be financial independent is a bit harder.

Losing

Losing Money

He said to me, I can have that conversation as I have lost and not found.

Years ago, he was planning on going to the DR, Dominican Republic.

She later became his wife, but she was his girlfriend then.

They had visited San Francisco and got in a big fight.

He went out mad at the world.

Later he found out that he had lost over $3400 cash he was throttling around.

Losing what wasn’t yours

Later that week during Church Services, the man of God said he had a Word about someone who has lost money.

The story was about a rich man who showed up in heaven will a train of God.  He was asked why he brought so much with him; as heaven as enough Gold and Diamond; as is.

The Word is that losing is not letting go of what wasn’t yours.

 

Epiphany

My new friend looked at me and said my life turned around in 2004.

I saw God face to face and he asked me to draw a line.

No more game playing.

 

Speaking Loudly to God

And, so each day he boldly wakes up and knows he is able to speak loudly to God.

No discouragement, No ambush.

Just Clarity.

Lyrics & Words

Church of Truth

Not in a Hurry

  1. Hurry
    • Just to rest in your nearness
    • I am starting to notice, you are speaking
    • I am not in a hurry
      • when it comes to your presence
      • when it comes to your voice
    • I am learning to listen
      • when it comes to your presence
  2. Get Rid
    • Get rid of the Failure
    • Get rid of the Lie of the enemy
  3. Spirit of God
    • When the Holy Spirit fills our lives, it fills us with the Spirit of God
    • It allows us to see into the Spirit World
    • Everything that is promised you, is promised you in the Spirit World

Damon Thompson

Damon Thompson – Authority of Intimacy – Call to the Altar

  1. Keep praying
  2. Peoples souls are in jeopardy, hanging in the balance
  3. Quit playing around with outer Church Christianity
  4. Conviction coming tonight
  5. The Love of God is coming to arrest
  6. Holy Spirit is coming to convict, righteousness
  7. God’s goodness is here tonight
  8. Issues of sin are separating you

Clear Word

Background

I like the fact that life happens and there are spiritual verses that we can use to reason through it.

I am hoping that this is a testimonial post.

 

Ravi Zacharias

Speaking the Truth

4 months or so ago, I was laying down after a hard day’s work and one of my wife’s cousin was going to call as were scheduled to have a phone conversation.

I did not know how to handle and manage that conversation.

It is not always easy been a champion of people; being an encourager.

And, so I was meandering.

But, then I again looked at the list of hits on our blog site and saw someone had clicked on one of Ravi Zachariah’s video.

I watched along, as well.

Less than a few minutes in, God’s word leapt to me.

Speak the truth to this person; no fluffs nothing.

Apologist

For a time there I took in all apologists that I could chew on.

My short list included :-

  1. RZIM
    • Ravi Zacharias
    • Michael Ramsden
    • Nabeel Qureshi
  2. Biola University
    • J.P. Moreland

But, lately, I am far more in to God’s presence ( Damon Thompson ) and Spiritual Warfare.

And, so I was surprised that when needing emotional clarity on how to speak to my wife’s cousin, God did not under girdle it with one of Damon Thompson’s words.

But, a straight up word from Ravi.

The words was get yourself together, tighten up your mind, and I, God, got this.

As an aside, Damon Thompson has spoken about taken in all of Apologetics that he could get his hands, on as well.

 

Wife’s Cousin Clear Word

She confessed where she was lacking.

My time with Stephen Ministry meant me not having to have her say more.

God’s ministry is not what we get, it is what we allow him to give.

It is proportional to that person’s faith, preparedness, and space they have created from the silly things and associations in life.

 

Outline

Family, we have to be cognizant and have internal honest conversations.

The list should include :-

  1. Promises
    • What promises are we back peddling on
  2. Traps
    • What traps are we setting for others
    • And, not realize that we are caught in the same trap
      • If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself ( Proverbs 26:27 )
  3. What is in it for me?
    • While in college, my college room-mate got in the habit of calling his uncle and asking for money
    • Finally, he realized that his uncle always switches things around and says I was just going to call your myself

 

Personal Take

I was involved in a good and long conversation this week.

He shared with me his take on why we have fallen leadership.

Again, Ravi Zacharias’s word bailed me out.

When one has a life of dissonance, eventually it will fall aside and apart.

Yes, there is incompetency.

But, also there is a life where people hold to failings and seek political advantages.

It takes a clear word from God and the gift of discernment to see through falsehoods.

Of course, we all need words of wisdom, words of knowledge.

These things are used to build communities; interconnect us through gifting.

They are used to reveal falsehood among brethren.

How ?

Bro, how can God use you, when he can not get a clear word out of you.

Greater Glory and Holiness

Page Views

Damon Thompson is by far the Pastor that speaks to my Heart the dearest.

Early this morning, I reviewed page views, searches, and links followed on our blog and saw someone had clicked on one of Damon Thompson’s videos.

Run Ahead

The sermon he clicked on is “Run Ahead“.

BTW, that sermon is available here.

In that sermon, Damon used a line that is likely popular in evangelical circles.

It reads :-

The glory of this House will be greater than its past glory

Haggai 2:9

Did a google search and ended up at Prophet Haggai; specifically Haggai 2:19

Haggai 2:9-12 King James Version (KJV)

Verses

Link

The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.

10 In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,

11 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,

12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.

Quick Take

  1. Haggai 2:9
    • Glory of latter house greater than the former, sayest the Lord of Hosts
    • Peace will be given
  2. Haggai 2:10
    • Reign of Darius
    • God word came to a prophet
  3. Haggai 2:11
    • God implored a prophet to go back and look at the Law Book
  4. Haggai 2:12
    • One bears Holy Flesh
    • But, touches bread, pottage, wine, oil, or meat
    • Will it be Holy?

Haggai 2:9-12 King James Version ( New Living Translation )

The New Living Translation is likely more modern.

It interjects itself.

It says I am talking about Blessings, yet it is anchored on obedience.

Verses

Link

The future glory of this Temple will be greater than its past glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. And in this place I will bring peace. I, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!”

Blessings Promised for Obedience

10 On December 18 of the second year of King Darius’s reign, the Lord sent this message to the prophet Haggai: 11 “This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says. Ask the priests this question about the law: 12 ‘If one of you is carrying some meat from a holy sacrifice in his robes and his robe happens to brush against some bread or stew, wine or olive oil, or any other kind of food, will it also become holy?’”

The priests replied, “No.”

Summary

So Bro here we go.

In evangelical, charismatic circles, we like to preach on increases and greater promises.

But, on the next verses over, God awakens the prophet to go back and look at the Law book.

Judgement & Discernment

As only a father, a King, can do.

He says Prophet, go speak to the priests for their sake.  And, also the congregants.

As the great pre-wrath teacher, Robert Van Kampen says :-

When I come upon a truth , it stands in judgement of me

Not, I it.

  1. My Beloved Daughter
    • Profile
      • Carolina Revival – 2/3/18. The woman in Mark 5 was considered unclean and soiled by the religious crowd around her. She had been conditioned by her issue to hide and not touch anything, but Jesus invited her to the center of His attention and affection. When you go through extreme disappointment, extreme private issues and extreme pain He doesn’t want you coping on the fringes. He wants you transformed, made whole, reproducing and He wants your identity restored that your issue stole from you. Jesus called her, “My Beloved Daughter.”
