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.

Robert D. Pace

Born with the name Shamgar he was raised on a farm. Seasons of plowing, sowing, tending, and harvesting had broadened his shoulders and enlarged his angular frame with muscle. His labor had acquainted him with shovels, plows, and threshing sledges, but on this day, Shamgar’s primary instrument would be an oxgoad. Judges 3:31 says: “Shamgar the son of Anath . . . killed six hundred men of the Philistines with an oxgoad; and he also delivered Israel.” The Bible uses one terse verse to capture an unprecedented account of Shamgar conquering 600 Philistine soldiers in an open field, but there is nothing trivial about this story. However, the moral of this story can only be deciphered in context of Shamgar’s oxgoad. An oxgoad was an eight-foot stick that farmers used for plowing. One end was beaten into an iron point that was used for prodding the ox, while the other end was shaped into a chisel that was used for dislodging clumps of dirt from the plow. An oxgoad is an unconventional weapon for fighting armed soldiers of war, but at day’s end Shamgar’s field was littered with 600 Philistines and God was ready to induct His newest champion into Israel’s Hall of Fame.

What does this episode of Shamgar and his oxgoad illustrate? It shows that God has placed something in your hand that can defeat the enemy of your soul. God gives ordinary people ordinary weapons that accomplish extraordinary feats! It’s a Biblical precedent: Moses parted the waters with a staff; David toppled Goliath with a slingshot; Jael defeated a General with a nail; Gideon and 300 men lit torches and blew trumpets to overthrow an innumerable host. There is a reason God set this precedent. It’s because He wanted Christians to recognize that His power operates through human weakness. The weakness of God surpasses the strength of men. The foolishness of God surpasses the wisdom of men. While we may never understand why God made us a farmer rather than a pharmacist; why He made us seamstress and not a scientist; just remember, God can accomplish something remarkable when you let Him empower ordinary parts of your life. No more lamenting about your talents and gifts. Accept what’s in your hand. And confess with Paul: “I will glory in my weaknesses. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
