Moses Was Right!
I am TOTALLY CONVINCED that the HOPE for the Future is NOT in the Church multiplying her ACTIVITIES, but in her PURIFYING HER HEART, RENEWING HER DEVOTION and CLARIFYING HER MISSION.
It's TRUE there have been periods in Church History when her FAITH was not CONQUERING, her PASSION not HOLY, her JOY not CONTAGIOUS and her SERVICE not HEROIC. But then, PRAISE HIS NAME, GOD sent TRUE REVIVAL to HIS CHURCH. The RESULTS?? Light broke, Blessings came, her soul Restored (“He restoreth my soul”) Psalm 23:3 (KJV) and the Spiritual deserts were once again made to BLOSSOM. And now Beloved, rejoice in this: What has been done, can be done!! “For the Lord’s arm is not shortened that is cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear" (Isaiah 59:1, KJV).
How is TRUE REVIVAL POSSIBLE? Listen to Moses! He said it was THE CLOUD and ONLY THE CLOUD that God’s People needed. While TODAY’S RELIGIOUS LEADERS are SEMINARING the Church to death in their attempts to attract the CROWDS, Moses was concerned for ONE THING: THE CLOUD! Moses knew the CROWD was at best NOTHING more than a RELIGIOUS CIRCUS (and it does not matter how well known the RINGMASTER is) WITHOUT THE CLOUD. All the ACTIVITIES to ATTRACT Crowds to our Churches are in VAIN unless the CLOUD is present. For you see, THE LOUCD in the Book of Exodus is symbolic of GOD’S PRESENCE! GOD’S REAL PRESENCE MUST RETURN TO CHURCH LIFE before we ever again make a SPIRITUAL IMPACT upon the crowds of our day!
MOSES WAS RIGHT when he said in Exodus 33:15: “and he said unto HIM, if thy PRESENCE go not with me, carry us not hence.” If we could make this TRUTH the HEART CRY OF the CHURCH TODAY, REVIVAL would be underway.
As we journey TOGETHER in 2016, know that I am counting on you. I love you dearly in our wonderful Lord Jesus.
Now a word from HIS WORD: “Then a cloud covered the
tent of the congregation, and the
glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not
able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode
thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. And when the cloud was taken
up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all
their journeys: But if
the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till
the day that it was taken up. For the
cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire
was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout
all their journeys” -- Exodus
