LastCall: the way of God -Jon Courson


And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.

 

Genesis 15:17

 

When Abram awoke, he saw that the meat on either side of him was barbecued. God had been there, not meeting Abram halfway as was the custom, but walking the entire length alone. 

This is still the way of God. Oh, we try and chase away the birds of evil which threaten our families and our country. We hold rallies and sign pledges; we make vows and make promises. But, because “in our flesh dwells no good thing” (see Romans 7:18), like Abram, we eventually become exhausted in trying. 

Although numbering over 1 million in attendance, a Promise Keepers’ rally in Washington, D.C., was not the biggest Promise Keepers convention in history. One three times as big took place at the foot of Mount Sinai, when 3 million people heard the voice of God and witnessed a divine pyrotechnic display that so impressed them, they said, “All the words which the LORD hath said, we will do” (Exodus 24:3). Those in attendance at that first Promise Keepers convention weren’t playing a game. They were sincere. They truly meant to keep the Ten Commandments. After all, they had heard God speak and had seen a mountain quake. But when Moses came down the mountain forty days later, he found them worshiping a golden calf. 

Times don’t change. People with sincere hearts say, “We will keep our promises.” The problem with signing contracts, making vows, and keeping promises, however, is that people fail to factor into the equation a huge component: the flesh. 

God’s aware of this, gang. That’s why He says, “I will wait until you’re as tired as Abram was. Then I’ll come through on My own. I don’t want you to sign a contract or make a promise. I know what you’re made of. I know your frailty. So I’m not going to meet you halfway. I’m going to do the whole thing.”
