A BURNING BUSH

Posted on June 1, 2020 at 9:35 AM

                                                          




The famous 'burning bush' of the Bible caused Moses to change his focus from the sheep, for the bush was burning but not consumed.  Reinhard Bonnke uses this strange phenomenon as an example of what our churches should be today.


Taking Action by Reinhard Bonnke;” "he founded a minietry called Christ for All Nations, becoming the inspiring visionary who always spoke of “plundering hell to populate heaven,” a dedicated preacher who saw “signs following” as the necessary evidence of the power of the Gospel to save, heal, and deliver.   He is credited with millions of salvations! 
This is a writing by him.


FIREPLACES

 If a church at least burns for God, it will attract notice. When churches are models of decency, decorum, conformity, and correctness, nobody says, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight”     (Purple colored print are Bonnke's words)


It’s true is it not? A big fire gathers everyone’s attention The same is true when there is a spiritual blaze, people stop and stare and often are hungry to be in closer commune with God.

 

(Exodus 3:1-3 (NIV)        Moses and the Burning Bush

3 Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2 There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3 So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”;)

 

FIRE MAKES FAMOUS

 Bushes should not burn, and many supposed churches should not burn either! If they do, somebody will look for a fire extinguisher. A church that burns is not normal. It is spectacular, and people stop to look. Some who stop will be like Moses and hear the voice of God, though others will be deaf. However, that is where God separates the people of the past from the people of the future.

                             


                                                                        



 The past spelled Egypt, bondage. The fire spelled freedom, adventure, and life. People are not seeking perfection but fire, warmth, and passion. Churches may look opulent, popular, and, successful, but I think of Peter and John. They had to confess, “Silver or gold I do not have” (Acts 3:6). They were both too shabby to attract admiration, but they could continue, “But what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” They did not have any cash, but they did have God.

 

Fire made the bush the most famous bush that ever grew. Only Moses saw it, but nobody can forget it. Fire made it what it was, and it made Moses who he was. He was learned in all the wisdom of Egypt, but for all that he would have died a nobody, a dusty mummy in Egypt.

 

Yet he met the God of fire in the wilderness, and he matters today very much. Similarly, the disciples were unknowns, fishing workers, until the tongues of flame rested upon them, and soon they had turned the world upside down. They did not know themselves until the fire transformed them. Their fervor brought them persecution and plenty of verbal abuse, but they are remembered and their persecutors are lost in oblivion. If any preacher hopes to be noted and remembered, let him be a burning bush.

 

FIRE ENDS DIVISION

 The divided tongues brought an end to division. Even when they were following Jesus, the disciples vied with one another to see who should be greatest. After Pentecost, however, we read that they “devoted themselves… to the fellowship… All the believers were together and had everything in common… They broke bread in their homes and ate together” (Acts 2:42-46, NIV).

 

One fire was divided into many flames, yet each was the fire of God. They did not need two flames for double power. Those divided flames created a new breed of men-not clones of one another but one new race, a new people. One flame represented the entire fire of God. Andrew’s flame burned with a different color than James’s fire. John was still John, but he became a flame called John. Thomas became an on-fire Thomas. Flame people! People who have dwelt with the everlasting burnings cannot stand smoldering smoke. The disciples were called when they were like black candlewicks, but the love of Christ lit them. Candles in a box, tossed to the corner- but taken out and set alight, they lit up the world!


                                                                



Adam and Eve are gone. Their ways are the past. We have a new covenat now with our mighty Lord God! He is the God who calls us precious children! He is the One who indwells us! We are the NEW! Let us pray:  O come Holy Spirit and light my soul on fire! We are ready to obey Your will and be who You created us to be!

 

The church is here to stay; the power of the Holy Ghost is working to a greater degree in these days, for these are days of great change, and these are days where mysteries will begin to be revealed like never before, and hidden things will become greatly known all over the earth, and what the enemy meant for evil, will be completely destroyed and turned around and used for the Lord’s own good!

 

Reinhard Bonnke was a great man of God! He has the same message that I have found in the last weeks … if you have been following these blogs. We are called to the flames of the Holy Spirit. . . remember Jeremiah spoke of fire shut up in his bones?

 

 Jeremiah 20:9 (AMP)
If I say, “I will not remember Him 
Or speak His name anymore." Then my heart becomes a burning fire
 shut up in my bones.
 And I am weary of enduring and holding it in; 
I cannot endure it [nor contain it any longer].

 

He could not help but speak the Words of God. They became a fire in his bones, and he could not hold the Words back; they had to come out; Is that not the way it should be with us? If we speak the full truth? Time is running out and there are many who need to be saved. Holy Spirit calls us; His flame is lighting the coals of our desire to follow God and His ways! Speak truth. Let our churches speak God’s Word in fullness, so all can come to believe Jesus and His Gospel. Let our churches be a raging fire to lead the way to salvation and peace and power. One match can set a forest on fire. It's the power of one. Reinhard Bonnke was one man, yet millions came to know Jesus through him. 


How many have come to know God through you and me?

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
