ALL MY FOUNTAINS ARE IN YOU

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. . . .

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.

A CHRISTMAS TRIP

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).

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.

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:

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.

Robert D. Pace

It was not unusual for me to tune-in to the Rush Limbaugh Show, but this day was different. Rush announced that his brother David would join him to discuss his book, “Jesus on Trial–A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel.” What I heard for the next 22-minutes astounded me! Mr. Limbaugh presented an unashamed, bold and clear presentation of the Gospel that I believe elicited a joyous roar from the “great cloud of witnesses” that listened. For 22-minutes David spoke breathlessly regarding the reliability of the Bible, the Cross, the Resurrection, personal transformation, and the Deity of Jesus Christ. I could not have been more thrilled to hear him share the Gospel with the hundreds of thousands of listeners that tuned-in.

However, (Yes, I’m inserting that adverb, however. . .) I must admit I was dismayed by David Limbaugh’s candid, closing statements. After a rousing presentation of the Gospel this is what he stated:

I’m not one of these charismatic type of Christians, but I firmly believe the Bible is the Word of God, and I’m excited about it and I want to be contagious in my enthusiasm for the Bible to inspire a like interest in other people so that they can explore it and receive the life-changing benefits that I have received.

“I’m not one of those charismatic type of Christians,” said David Limbaugh. Whatever this statement meant, there was an unquestionable indictment in those words. But, in his defense, I do not believe Mr. Limbaugh had suggested he wanted nothing to do with the precious Charismatic endowment that the Holy Spirit reserves for Christian service. In fact, even with Mr. Limbaugh’s reputation as a lawyer, it was clear that the Holy Spirit had anointed him that day with the gift of prophecy to proclaim the Gospel. Taking it a step further, he had operated with a remarkable evangelistic gift on that broadcast, too! Here’s what I think David Limbaugh meant with his “charismatic type” disclaimer.

I felt he was rejecting those that have turned the Gospel of Christ into an American Prosperity message. Such a message substitutes the Cross, repentance from sin, and dying to self for a message that places man at the center of worship. This ‘charismatic type Christian’ assumes God’s greatest pleasure is their personal happiness. It seemed Mr. Limbaugh distanced himself from the “charismatic type” preacher that promises profligate reciprocity to people that support their ministry. Whatever Mr. Limbaugh meant, he didn’t want to be labeled as such. And rightfully so!

Unfortunately, this has become much of the American brand of the Gospel. As a Pentecostal, I am not only saddened that this is true, I am fearful of what it indicates. When Christians buy in to this “message” they exchange doxology for idolatry. And without doxology the Church has no power to transform lives! While there are temporal blessings that God reserves for Believers, we must remember that these temporal blessings are subsidiaries to the grand spiritual blessings of His kingdom! I have experienced divine healing. God has enriched my financial welfare when I have been in need. I have witnessed the fulfillment of prophecies. But the Bible is clear: everything of this earth is passing away! That means our blessings don’t transfer into Heaven! It’s our sacrifices that transfer to Heaven! It’s when we bless those that curse us, feed those that use us, love those that hate us that supply us with eternal, unfading, inestimable rewards!

Thank you David Limbaugh for your unwitting, prophetic rebuke to Christians that may have strayed from keeping Christ at the center of life. And thank you for reminding us (without actually saying it) that true joy is Jesus, Jesus, and more of Jesus. It is the gift from Heaven that is priceless!
