Lead In: 0:00
I am Ron your host and on this podcast the family opens their hearts to the cry of the Holy Spirit. Where is the God of Elijah? Where is the God of miracles? Where is Jehovah, the right now God? Join us in our cry to our Father for a greater appropriation of His presence in this earth.
We draw the Holy Spirit tonight and we ask Him to show us, to speak through us. We don’t understand but our heart us yearning to function and do what it is you’re want us to do. So, show us, show us, reveal to us, we are not going to be satisfied anymore with just a taste. And I draw on the Holy Spirit to show us to guide us and to speak through us and let us really see what are you doing. Tell us what You’re are doing, show us. Well we open our hearts. Our hearts are yearning to want to do and be what the Lord wants us to do and be in this earth. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We agree with that. Christ called it a mystery. The mystery of Christ in you, the hope of glory. That is what the Holy Spirit was to do, reveal the mysteries of Christ. So, we ask your Holy Spirit to reveal the mysteries of Christ to us, show us, lead us, direct us.
There is a need here. We need the Holy Spirit, we need the out pouring of the Holy Spirit. I just cry out for it, Lord. I cry out for it, I want the Holy Spirit. The outpouring, the descending of the Holy Spirit.
You know we can read until we are blue in the face. We can quote scripture, we can do all this stuff but where is that reality of right now of the functioning? Where is the functionality of it but in our mind we think we have an answer? But you know I don’t believe that’s the truth because we cannot do it in our mind. We have to have the Holy Spirit show us and teach us and guide us. I want that reality that simple scripture that says, “These things will follow those who believe.” It’s not saying those that who are miracle workers or those who were this or that it’s those who believe. The sick will be healed. We’ll raise the dead. Where is the lack of connection that we should have to see the reality of these things taking place.
We loose the hunger for it. We loose the desire to know and to have it.
God impart to us a hunger for the Holy Spirit. Lord I want it. “I believe help thou my unbelief.” I don’t really want to have all the right answers about it. I don’t care about the right answers. I care about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It will be evident.
It’s time for reaching in.
You know I want to be able to say we better run because that is a promise the size of a man’s hand. And we better run because it’s going to be a deluge. The fact that I know, that was Elijah talking about the rain. I don’t care about that. I want the reality of what is the Spirit leading right now. What is he trying to kick us in the pants for?
Christ was not led, He was driven. Driven. He didn’t wake up and go, oh Father lead me today, what are you speaking? He was driven by the Holy Spirit. He was literally driven, it was no question.
I have experienced tastes of that. That I have to do something. I have to do it and I get up and go do it. Because I feel compelled to do it. Driven to do it. But it’s few and far between.
That should be the way we are moving all the time.
One of the things that we can do, appropriate the answer. And then let that appropriation have an expression. You’re speaking about Him being driven. Where did He get that? He got it from His Father and it was like you just said, Allan, it was from Spirit to Spirit.
It was when the Spirit fell on Him at Jordan, that’s when He was first driven to go into the wilderness.
Where is the fruits of the Spirit? That’s what I am asking. That’s what I am looking for I want to know, I want to walk in those.
It doesn’t matter how many hours a day I wait on the Lord. How many hours a day I pray. How many hours a day I be in the Word. It still needs to work. For me it is not good enough that is works in the Spirit where I can’t see it. I live here on this terra firma and this part of my body God made too. He made all three realms, my soul, my body, and my spirit. I am beside myself because we have talked about this for forty years. It is kind of like God going well how long will you put up with this. How long are you going to put up with not seeing my Word manifested in the earth. Just imagine for a second the outpouring of the Holy Spirit happens and it doesn’t stop happening.
Right. Exactly, but we are believing for that baptism of the Holy Spirit where He comes and He is so much more real than the air we breathe. And that He is leading us, compelling us, driving us to say or to do whatever and out of that compulsion things start to take place.
But I do want it just to be a talk I want that somehow, we can touch Him. Where He hears our heart cry. He hears it and takes notice. I need an overflow of the Holy Spirit.
I would quote from Elisha, “Where is the God of Elijah?” That that is our cry. Where is the God that is making things happen? Where is the God of Elijah where they brought down fire after they doused those alters with so much water? Where is that God. Where is the God who parted the Red Sea? Who caused all the ten gods of Egypt to die. That’s the God I want to see. That’s the God I want to hear from. I don’t want to be satisfied with just a puny little portion. If I am asking for an avalanche I don’t want to get satisfied for a thimble. We accept too little from God. God is very good about that. He will give you a thimble full and see of you will leave Him alone. But it’s only the beginning, I want to know His ways so much. I think it is His drive. He wants this in us and we are finally giving it an expression together instead of just one or two.
My focus is Him and crying out to Him going I need more of you. I need the Holy Spirit because how the heck am I going to be a channel to bring forth Your kingdom which I understand is the bottom line. That is what you put me here for. To bring forth your kingdom in the earth, I can’t do that with what little I have. I just can’t, I can’t follow the pattern of Christ. I can’t. Christ couldn’t follow it. He had to have the fullness of the Holy Spirit, I am no better than Him. Just like the disciples they were bumbling idiots, there just like us until they had the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The day of Pentecost something happened to those guys, dramatic. Because they changed. You know and excuse me if this is offensive but it is not about me. We’re not going to get ripped off. We are not going to be just like the guys in Hebrews. They had faith, but they never got the promise. They didn’t get the promise guys.
You read Hebrews, you read about Jesus. We sing a song that He would get His reward. I don’t want to see another generation have to come and go. I want to see that fulfillment happen. I want Christ to get His reward. I want to see the fulfillment of everything He spoken on this earth to take place. I want to see those fulfillments. It’s not about us, never has been.Ron::
Aren’t we His reward.Allan::
