CHURCHES OF AUSTRALIA
Dear Churches of Australia,
I dont really know where you are at these days. But nevertheless I feel on my heart
that the least I could do is pass it on
. Another little morsel of meat/pick me
up/stir me up (or whatever you may like to call it).
Everywhere I read in Scripture it seems to me that the Lord never left Himself without
witness- a stirrer, when/as needed: David had it, as did Ahab, Zerubbabel &
Joshua (the son of Josedech), Lot, to name a few; as also Israel in general. Also as
said Peter in 2 Peter 3:1, and Paul in Hebrews 3.
I know Im getting my stirring these days, which is the only way to be, isnt it
the only way we can survive. I get it at least every Sunday morning! Which
is a real experience, giving me opportunity to move on. For as we know, there is really no
standing-still position, is there?
However, not often is the stirrer loved in Elijahs case called
he troubleth Israel and my enemy (Ahab talking); though in
Nathans case (with David), and Haggai's case (Zerubbabel and Joshua) it was a good
response of repentance and action; while Lot as usual dragged his feet!
I find the messages to the 7 churches of Revelation perhaps the most relevant today. No
one (generally) seems keen to minister on those these days, though everyone seems
to be in for the rest of Revelation, if they have enough imagination.
I might try and get another one of brother Pauls tapes to you guaranteed to
fulfill: Let the righteous smite me
and the excellent oil
Again with Christian love from us both.
Brother Donald Wilson.
