Living fall, that dying empty.
No message usually come to the one of two wings, and there I choose them what they choose May.
Sometimes when I'm reading this word, a thought or idea would beat off the page and demand that I Pritchett. Then there seems Tuesday to explain and bring it to life, it requires me to expend expand the hidden riches of the revelation, and understanding in it.
The scriptures we are about Reid is one such passage, it drum my attention a few weeks ago and would not leave me alone to the wrestled some meaning from it.
Elisha died and was buried, by raiders used to enter the country every spring. You are wants while some Israelites of the varying demands.
Suddenly this sort of band of raiders, so they threw the man's body in to Elisha's tomb.
when the body touched Elisha's bones, the man come to life and stole up on his feet.
( 2 Kings 13: 20 -21 )
it would seem that years after he had died, locked up in the Elisha's bones was a lost legend of power and the 19.
Somehow in Elisha's human remains there was still a deposit of incredible power.
What was that power doing locked up in his bones? Why when Elisha died didn't his power die with him? How can a person's power and anointing still linger here on earth long after they have died and gone to heaven?
As I meditated on these important questions the Holy Spirit spoke so clearly to me.
He said that the reason Elisha's bones still contains some of his power and anointing was because Elisha died before he could get empty.
At first the statement stunned me, but the more I thought about it the more I felt the weight of the realisation that it is possible for a person to die before they have fully discharged what god give them to pass on in this life.
I believe that we're all call to live full and die empty but sadly for generations the Church as completely missed this point.
We have thought the idea was to live full and stay full and die full, so for many years Christians have hidden behind the walls of the church life, getting fatter and fatter, because over fed and under exercised.
We have to a large degree become a generation not of God chasers but of blessed chasers.
Running around the world to the late to spiritual hotspots in the pursuit of more goose-bump Christianity.
We have fallen over, rolled around and run up the aisles.
tough We have been stuck to the floor stuck to the wall, struck dumb and laughed uncontrollably yet in spite of all this activity manifesting it is sad to say that by the large like James Bond's Martini we are shaken but not stirred our cities remain untouched our sacred cows remain unbarbecued and much of our church life has returned to the business as usual.
The destination of all our fullness is emptiness.
Has Jesus as done since the beginning the Holy Spirit can tell still be found hovering on the borders longing to get involved in filling it with God's life, under the rule of God, is drawn to emptiness not fullness.
If we want to keep God involved in our lives and the churches then we must keep finding empty vessels for him to fill.
In the story of the widow's oil, God only stop pouring when widow's run out of emptiness, as soon as she could find no more empty vessels, God stop pouring, if fullness describes a lives and churches, then God has already stopped pouring, until we get rid of all of some our fullness by finding people to pour into the flow will be shut off.
