LITTLE TEA POT
|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 (with 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.

THOSE FAULT FINDING PROPHETS
This man Amos was initially no prophet nor was he a son of any
prophet he was following the flock
no, dear friend, brother Amos was no graduate
from the school of prophets or the silver spoon ecumenical bible college.. Revelation
2:16, 1 Corinthians 1:26-31.
We just read some of the words to expect from a true prophet of the
living, loving God of Abraham. Brother Amos, was never in the prophets ministers club of
Israel, nor was he able to say my dad, uncle, cousin and all my relatives have all served
the Lord of Israel and I too am now a minister keeping up the family tradition
God anointed for the position or not
