JonCourson: “the miracle of manna ceased,”

May blessings be abounding to you all this day!

And if I may, let me share with you something that has truly blessed me in a profound way . . .

My son Benjamin has just released his third book entitled "A Generation Chosen."

Everything from the front/back cover, to the layout and sizing, and (most importantly) the content of his writing is very, very fresh and just plain ol' cool!

But don't let the cool factor fool you . . . for the book is written as a clarion call to this new generation of young adults to take seriously the command to take up the Cross, die to self and live a consecrated life for the Lord.

As a young adult himself (with a very wise 'old soul'), Ben speaks the language and understands the battles facing his generation. He pulls no punches, yet he preaches grace. He issues an exhortative invitation to grow up and get serious about living for Jesus, and explains why this is the way to really experience the abundant life.

If you are linked to folks in their twenties (or teens), please consider putting this book in the hands of every one of them!

And if you yourself desire to be inspired and encouraged in your own walk with Jesus, I promise you this book will most definitely do just that.

Truly, this book is a bargain at $10.00, and you can order today by clicking onto the following link:
A Generation Chosen

You can also order this book and other books by Ben, or take in his teachings, by visiting his website at www.bencourson.com

Ah, I have great, great hope for the impact that this new generation will make on this old, broken world that so needs to passionately fall in love with and seriously follow after the Lord Jesus Christ, who "is the same yesterday, today and forever."

Amen and amen!

All Blessings,

Jon

  And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.  
  Joshua 5:12  
 
It is interesting to me that it was in the Promised Land, a picture of the Spirit-filled life, that the miracle of manna ceased. If there was ever going to be manna from Heaven, I would think it would be when we’re Spirit-filled, when we’re moving in the arena of the miraculous, when we have the anointing of the Holy Ghost. But this passage tells me differently, for when the Israelites were in the wilderness - which speaks of carnality and dryness - miracles abounded. But now that they’re in the Promised Land, the manna stops. 

In the Azusa Street Revival of the early 1900s, during which there was a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the leader of the movement prophesied that three things would cause the movement of the Spirit to be quenched: more attention given to the Holy Spirit than to Jesus Christ, more attention given to praise than to prayer, and more attention given to the gifts of the Spirit than to the fruit of the Spirit.

When they were released from Egypt and as they wandered in the wilderness, the children of Israel saw more signs and wonders than any other group of people in history. Yet it was unbelief that kept them from entering the Promised Land (Hebrews 3:19) because faith doesn’t come through seeing miracles. It comes from hearing the Word. Therefore, the new generation would eat the formidable fruit found produced in the Land of God’s promise rather than the manna of the miraculous. 

Cling to the Word. Cling to the promises of God. Not only will this please God as you walk by faith, but you will find them to nourish and sustain you more deeply than even a miracle would.
