Luke says as these shepherds watched their flocks during the night, the glory of God shined all around them. Now can you imagine that? It’s pitch black and then, suddenly, everything around them is illuminated! Then an angel appears and announces that the awaited Savior of the world has been born and is lying in swaddling clothes in a manger in Bethlehem. But it’s still not over. Besides this angelic messenger and the glory of God that is all around them, a vast, multitude of angels appears praising God, saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests” (2:13).

GOD RAISES DEAD DREAMS

Scripture uses death to identify man’s greatest enemy and there’s nothing man fears more. When a person expires, losing all vital signs, doctors, medicine, and science stand powerless in its presence. Only God can resurrect. But this sermon doesn’t deal with the physical cessation of life, it deals with death of a different nature. The death of God’s divinely inspired promises and visions. I’m persuaded that many Christians are in the gestation stage of a specific promise God has given them. Perhaps years ago He planted a dream and you’re still awaiting its fruition. Maybe even hope has begged you to admit that promise is dead. But the God that resurrected Christ from the dead can resurrect your promise.

PARDON ME!

In Psalm 32, David proclaims the blessedness of the one whose sins are forgiven. And he does this in a unique way. He uses three expressions for sin and then employs three expressions of God’s pardon for sin. Here’s what I mean: David called one category of sins transgressions, which indicates “rebellion against God”; another he simply called sin, which describes “knowingly missing the mark”; and the third category he called iniquity, which speaks of a “vile perversion.” Those terms cover the entire gamut of our sinfulness—major and minor. But then after showing us three categories of sin he uses three expressions to show how God pardons our sins:

WHAT NEVER HAPPENED ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT

Let’s journey back several thousand years to Jerusalem during Passover week. This was the holiest of the seven Hebrew festivals that attracted thousands of worshipers. Some traveled hundreds of miles to attend this celebration in the religious capital of the world—Jerusalem. What a sight it must have been! For seven days the Priests appeared in their royal apparel, led the people in worship, offered sacrifices, and blew shofars (2 Chronicles 30:21). Everything was leading to the Day of Atonement when the High Priest would present the blood of a Passover lamb for the people’s sins. Not only was Jerusalem sightly its aroma was pungent.

UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LAST DAYS

What makes the Last Days unique? As the Prophets and Apostles described them, they included dark sayings, foreboding warnings, and coded messages. Did you know that the dispensation known as the Last Days has a definite starting point? But equally important, Jesus and the Apostles embedded a dynamic “Call to Action” to Christians for these days that must not be ignored! Additionally, there is a primary message, along with an overriding objective, for all people to recognize. Finally, the Bible includes a preset day of termination for the Last Days.

Moses had completed his 40-year mission of guiding the Israelites through the wilderness, now the Promised Land was but a few steps away. Canaan was 60% desert, with approximately two-million Jews ready to inherit it, but what good would this land be without water? So before the Israelites took one step into their inheritance, Moses combined God’s promise to grant them land with his promise to grant them water: “For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills” (Dt.8:7). I have a question: How could God possibly fulfill this promise when Canaan was 60% desert? Where were these “brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out”? God answered this question in Isaiah. . . .

PULPIT TODAY SERMONS

Robert D. Pace

Isaiah 43:18–21

Through the years, I have heard people make the statement, “What we need is an old-fashioned revival.” Someone else chimes in and says, “Yes, we need to rediscover our roots and return to our founding principles.” Statements like these are revealing. They imply something is wrong with our relationship with God. They indicate a time existed when people were more committed or enthusiastic about serving God, but like the Church at Ephesus, people have lost something.

There is unquestionably a spirit of indifference and lack of commitment prevailing over many churches. I am certain it can be said that many congregations barely pray, hardly support foreign missions, or effectively evangelize their community. But I am convinced turning back the clock does not remedy the dilemma. Some people honestly believe if preachers would preach the old-fashioned way, and if churches would chant the refrain of ancient songs, and if Christians conducted church as in bygone days, revival would blaze uncontrollably. But it might surprise you that the Bible does not propose such a solution. The cure for spiritual indifference is not a throwback to the “good old days.” No, the Bible says the solution for spiritual renewal arises from the present. In Isaiah 43:19 God told Isaiah, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”

The rain of the Spirit and His “times of refreshing” come through a new experience with God. And Isaiah wasn’t the only one understanding this. Scripture repeatedly expresses God’s desire to do a “new thing.”

Psalm 33:3 says: “Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.”

Jeremiah 31:31 says: “The time is coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.”

Ezekiel 11:19 says: “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them.”

Concerning Christ’s ministry Mark 1:27 says: “The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority!”

2 Corinthians 5:17 says: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

2 Peter 3:13 says: “we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.”

Revelation 21:5 says: “He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”

The Bible has this issue firmly settled: God wants to do a “new thing”! And when you think about it, this is what we really need. For example, would you rather have God restore your 10 year-old automobile or would you rather have God supply you a new automobile? Would you rather have God restore your 5 year-old computer or mobile device or would you rather have God supply you with a new one? God’s thoughts toward you are the same: He wants to give you a new heart. He wants to supply you with a new vision. He wants to rain afresh on your parch land and give you a new harvest. But how do we allow God to do a “a new thing” in our life?

Paul unveiled the key to seizing the moment when he said, “This one thing I do, forgetting the things that are behind, I press toward the mark of the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus.” That’s what Isaiah meant when he said to “forget the former things; [and] do not dwell on the past” (43:18).

(Illustration) Some years back I attended a Pastor’s Christmas banquet and sat by a couple from a non-denominational Charismatic church. We enjoyed a pleasant discussion until I innocently mentioned that the Charismatic movement had crested and a new move had emerged. I wasn’t criticizing the Charismatic Movement, because God has used it to impact a wide range of denominations and introduce millions to the Holy Spirit. But the fact is, the Charismatic Movement peaked years ago. But when I said that, you would have thought I declared the next World War. She and her red Christmas outfit instantly morphed into the SWAT patrol. “The Charismatic Movement has seen its day?” she said. She launched an assault that would have made General Patton proud. Why did she do this? It was because she had become a Christian amidst the flames of the Charismatic renewal and “how dare” anyone suggest God was doing a “new thing.”

We have to understand that Movements and waves of the Spirit constantly shift. And when God consummates a particular mode of operation in His kingdom, or even in our life, we should be willing to thank Him for it, release it, and let Him birth a “new thing.” What God did ten or twenty years ago is wonderful, but it was a “new thing” then and God required us to “seize the moment” by accepting something new. That’s why we need to pray for God to keep our soul as a new, flexible wineskin.

“A New Thing” Requires Living by Faith

There’s a reason God asks us to accept “new things.” It’s because the issue of faith is at stake. Faith isn’t activated by looking back, it’s released by participating in God current activity. When we exhibit excessive affection to a past move of God—when we coddle it, venerate it, and talk about it like there will never be anything better—it means we aren’t accepting God’s contemporary dealings. But it means more than that. It means doubt has crept in and we assume God can’t improve on what He did years ago!

I’m thankful for the Spiritual Movements from years ago, but it takes no faith to live in the past and talk about the “good old days.” It may create goose bumps and a warm fuzzy feeling, but clinging to the past can’t move us forward! When you read the Bible you’ll see that God used people to do a “new thing” that was untested or unconventional:

God commanding Noah to construct a ship miles from water and large enough to contain the world’s animals was a “new thing.”

When Moses installed Joshua as Israel’s leader, Joshua’s first command to Israel was to march around the walls of Jericho. Now this was a completely untested and unconventional military strategy!

Elijah commanding the Syrian General Naaman to dip seven times in the Jordan River to remove his leprosy was novel treatment.

Jesus walking on water and pasting mud on blind eyes and dividing a lunch basket to over 5000 people were “new things.”

The Holy Spirit sweeping over 120 Believers with wind, fire, and tongues was a “new thing.”

Peter’s shadow passing over the sick and Paul’s swatches of sweaty clothes being carried to the infirmed had never been practiced by Jesus or any of the Old Testament prophets. But miracles followed!

Are you  willing to allow God to do a “new thing” in your life? When the Holy Spirit leads you into something like this it requires a step of faith on your part, but it also brings wondrous blessing into your life! Remember: things will not change if you continue with the “status quo.” Breakthroughs  occur when you allow God to move in a new way.

(Transition) I want to illustrate this from a remarkable way God introduced a “new thing” to the nation of Israel.

The Bronze Serpent

Shortly after Moses delivered the Israelites from Egypt, they approached Canaan. The plagues had shaken Egypt and the Red Sea had opened for Israel’s passage to freedom. You remember all those “signs and wonders” God used to deliver Israel. They were spectacular! And I’m sure the Israelites assumed they would quickly overtake Canaan. But God had a different plan. Instead of leading the Israelites on a short, straight route into Canaan God led Israel on a longer, circuitous route. And while God had a predesigned purpose for it, Israel didn’t understand it. But true to Israel’s reputation, instead of willingly submitting, they did what they did best—they grumbled! Numbers 21:5 says Israel became impatient and grumbled against God, Moses, and their food. But God had a cure for their murmuring. He sent venomous snakes into their camp!

It doesn’t take long to repent when vipers are coiled around your tent poles! But do you remember how God answered their repentance and brought healing for the snakebites? God had Moses shape and raise a brass serpent in the midst of the camp. Moses told the people if they wanted to be healed they should look at that serpent.

Folks, that was a “new thing”! When people are healed by looking at a serpent on a pole; that’s different! Moses could have questioned God and said, “Lord, I’ve never heard of such a ridiculous solution to these snakebites . . . a serpent on a pole? There must be a better way to deal with this.” But Moses didn’t question God. And when Moses obeyed, God worked miracles!

As I studied and contemplated this strange event I discovered something intriguing. With two to three million Israelites traveling through the wilderness, most people couldn’t see the serpent by simply looking outside their tents—the distance was too great. And then there were visual obstructions that prevented a clear view of the bronze serpent. The thousands of tents in the camp prevented people from a clear view of perceiving the bronze serpent. When I considered this here’s what I realized. While God provided the remedy, and even sent it right into their midst, the people had their obligation. God sent the solution, but the Israelites had to position themselves to see God’s offer of healing. Israel had to get into a “perceiving” position.

Folks, there may be a million steps that separate you from God, and God will take 999,999 steps to get where you are. But He is going to leave one step for you to take, and it’s called the “step of faith.” He wants you to take one “step of faith” that acknowledges you have accepted His work.

What Happened to the Bronze Serpent?

Have you ever wondered what eventually happened to that bronze snake? It’s almost unbelievable, but years later, after Israel settled into the Promised Land, they venerated it and burned incense to it. An object, which once brought Israel’s healing, was transformed into idolatrous artifact that violated the Ten Commandments. It took one of Judah’s greatest and most discerning kings to deal with the situation. 2 Kings 18:4 says Hezekiah “removed the high places, smashed the sacred stones and cut down the Asherah poles. He broke into pieces the bronze snake Moses had made.” It’s sad that Moses’ brass serpent had to be destroyed alongside objects of heathen worship! But it’s because God wants devotion to the Master not a monument; He wants allegiance to the Creator not creation; Jesus Christ is the focus of our worship and affection and not a movement, monument, or man!

One reason God hasn’t preserved Biblical artifacts for Christianity is because He knew we would worship them.

Noah’s Ark is ensconced high atop the snowy crags of Mount Ararat making it nearly impossible to worship.

The whereabouts of the Ark of the Covenant, the holiest of all Christian artifacts, is unknown to Christians.

The Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D.

Christ’s wooden Cross is forever gone—even His garments were seized by the soldiers crucifying Him.

About the only Christian artifact remaining is the empty tomb. And you see, it’s not what resides in the tomb that we celebrate, it’s what’s absent from the tomb!

(Transition) Do you believe you’re capable of moving into a time of transition, and receive something new from God? Typically, Christians are the perennial obstructers to God’s “new thing.” They may mean well, but in their efforts to quarantine the Church against heresy they hinder the Spirit’s working.

“New Things” of the Past

In 1517 Martin Luther tacked his “95 Theses” to a Church door in Wittenberg, Germany, declaring to the Papacy, “the just shall live by faith.” This is the greatest truth ever restored to the Church! But guess who vehemently fought him? The religionists! Luther was branded an outlaw and forced into hiding for his proclamation.

Congregational singing, began by an Anglican Priest in the 17th century, was opposed by the established Church.

George Whitefield and those associated with America’s Great Awakening were resisted by the established Church. It was characterized as an “extremist” movement.

Can you imagine any Christian opposing missionary societies? Yet, this is what happened in the 1800s. Leaders of “organized” religion vehemently opposed Missions organizations!

Sunday School, which began in the 19th century, was initially scorned.

Even the altar call, originating in the 19th century, was contested.

The Pentecostal movement was birthed in 1901 and the flames of revival engulfed America. Believers spoke in tongues, exercised spiritual gifts, testified of miracles, danced, and rejoiced. But guess who opposed it? The established Church! G. Campbell Morgan, a great preacher of the 20th Century, declared: “This is the last great vomit of Satan before the return of Christ.”

In the ‘60’s and ‘70’s the Charismatic renewal spread into the Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Lutheran Churches. Guess who opposed it? That’s right, evangelical churches, along with many Pentecostals!

How many want to revert to the horse and buggy days? How many want the dentist to extract your tooth without anesthesia? Nobody wants this! And neither should Christians be too quick to reject a “new thing” from God. Yes, you should test it and make certain God approves it. And if it stands true to the Word of God with the witness of the Spirit you should accept it!

An outdated, worn-down Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, or Charismatic anointing will not effectively work! The anointing you operated in 20 years ago is insufficient for today’s needs. Even last year’s anointing won’t work.  It takes a fresh impact of the Holy Spirit upon Believers to advance God’s Kingdom.

I want to share a passage of Scripture the Lord directed me to awhile back. Open your Bible to 1 Chronicles 22:11-19 and let’s read.

1 Chronicles 22:11–19

Don’t misunderstand this passage of Scripture. God isn’t suggesting that we disdain the past or issue unwarranted criticism of it. God wants us to honor our heritage but then accept His present dealings with us. Remain open to the “new thing” God has for today.

(Transition) Let me conclude with some remarks toward those that need a fresh start in life. Perhaps you have been sidelined because of poor choices and mistakes. I want to assure you that God offers you a “new beginning.”

Conclusion

(Illustration) In the United States football is a major sport. One of college football’s most famous moments occurred in the early 1900s when Georgia Tech played California University. Late in the second quarter Tech fumbled and Roy Riegals scooped up the ball and ran sixty-five yards . . . in the wrong direction toward Tech’s goal. His own player tackled him at the two-yard-line. California attempted to punt from their end zone, but Tech blocked it and scored. At halftime, the teams went to their locker rooms where Riegals burst into tears. But the coach never mentioned Riegals’ misdirected run. As a matter of fact, Riegals was told he would start the second half. But when the team charged back toward the field Riegals wouldn’t budge from the locker room. Understanding human nature as he did, the California coach knew this experience could devastate Riegals. So the coach looked at Riegals, and with the sternness of an Army General said: “Roy, the game is only half over. Get out there. You belong on the field.”

Aren’t you glad God doesn’t eject you from the game when you make a mistake? With God, failure doesn’t mean the game is over. He has a “new thing” for you. I look forward to God’s presence and power gloriously descending upon us. God is doing a new thing in the earth and I want to be more than a part of it; I want to be a vital part of it!
