Why should we follow the HS into the wilderness for the next 6 weeks?
>> For the sake of the one who loves me. He is inviting me, why would I not go? Psalm 80.
>> For the sake of those that I love and enjoy. I will do everything with great passion, toil laboriously so people at HOF can enter and partake in it.
>> For the sake of my calling. There is a purpose I am appointed to and why I am connected to these truths. I am here because God has knitted me into this place,into these truths. How can I then be disobedient to my heavenly calling.
>> For the sake of the kingdom.
>> For the sake of the ones who are on earth. Always a contest for land& life since Eden. Isaiah 18:3 (MSG). Called to put a flag up on the mountain and blow the trumpet so that earth dwellers are aware that rescue is here.
Where do we start?
Hebrews 12 (MSG,TPT)
Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus , who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there , in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!
Watch out for the Esau syndrome: trading away God’s lifelong gift in order to satisfy a short-term appetite. You well know how Esau later regretted that impulsive act and wanted God’s blessing—but by then it was too late, tears or no tears.
Make very sure that you never refuse to listen to God when he speaks! For the God who spoke on earth from Sinai is the same God who now speaks from heaven. Those who heard him speak his living Word on earth found nowhere to hide, so what chance is there for us to escape if we turn our backs on God and refuse to hear his warnings as he speaks from heaven?
Since we are receiving our rights to an unshakeable kingdom we should be extremely thankful and offer God the purest worship that delights his heart as we lay down our lives in absolute surrender, filled with awe. For our God is a holy, devouring fire!
Colossians 1:28 (TPT)
