When The Cloud Moved!

The Pastor’s Quill

 

Apr 13, 2014

 

While the Children of Israel were experiencing their forty years of “circles” in the wilderness (due to their unbelief, which God considered as a SIN), they had many gracious acts of God demonstrated on their behalf. They had food miraculously provided for them (manna and quail). They had water supernaturally provided for them (forming out of rocks – enough to quench the thirst of 2.5 – 3 million people + their livestock [now that is a lot of water]). Their shoes and clothes DID NOT wear out (and ladies, they didn’t go out of style – the lack of choice keeps today’s fashion ‘IN’). By night God placed this ‘pillar of fire’ directly over the tabernacle (a glorified tent where the Ark of the Covenant was kept – the symbolic throne of God in the earth) – this FIRE gave them warmth from the cold desert nights, but also illuminated the region to keep the people from being attacked by marauders and wild animals. Then, by day God gave them a CLOUD COVER to keep the desert sun from cooking them. Here’s an important thing about that CLOUD: when it began to move that was a sign for the people that they had to move too. Continue reading

RESURRECTION SEED

The Pastor’s Quill

The countdown to Easter has gone from months to where it can be counted in weeks and even days. It is upon us. Easter: there is more to it than eggs and bunnies. Easter is the greatest and most dynamic singular EVENT known to the history of man! Easter is the celebration of the RESURRECTION of the Lord Jesus Christ! Our culture waters it down with many fringe celebrations. I have no problem with Easter eggs or an Easter bunny as long as we remember what Easter is really all about: JESUS!

For us at Crossroads World Outreach Center (CWOC), we have a yearly assignment for Easter. As we celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord we acknowledge that the Father in Heaven gave us the greatest gift: HIS SON! Our annual assignment at Easter is to honor that gift, which to us was the SEED OF LIFE, and we reciprocate that gift by giving a special SEED (offering) of our own. We call it the RESURRECTION SEED OFFERING (RSO).

Many times preachers have wrongly manipulated people into giving by alluding to ‘buying a miracle.’ The truth is that a person cannot BUY anything from God. However, God has set certain principles and laws into motion that He does honor. One of those laws is the LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING. For example, the scriptures plainly state in Galatians 6:7, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (NKJV). Jesus said it like this: “Give, and you will receive. A large quantity, pressed together, shaken down, and running over will be put into your pocket. The standards you use for others will be applied to you” (Luke 6:38, GWT).
