RHEMA 10/19/08 FORMAT? “STICK” TO THE RHEMA
ANSWERED PRAYER: I have been praying about the
“format” for the upcoming school and asking the Lord
what He wants to do. Up til this point, I have learned
that in sharing the rhema on the email list, to share in
chronological order. I am totally depending upon the
Lord for daily bread, and He gives it according to His
plan. That way I dont have to worry about any of it. I
just show up to eat! He is the One Who arranges His
divine timing to line up with His people, sending His
Word when they need it.
I have watched this through the ministry of Bob Jones.
One of the important things he has taught is how to
“organize” the conferences in which he speaks. They
usually meet together in a prophetic round table at
breakfast each day prior to the meetings and share what
the Lord told them that night. They almost always
“stick” to the plan of only sharing what the Holy Spirit
brought to them the night before each meeting. This is
the way to honor the Holy Spirit and allow Him control
over all that goes on.
John 8:28-29 NKJV
"When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know
that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My
Father taught Me, I speak these things. And He who sent
Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I
always do those things that please Him."
John 12:49-13:1 NKJV
For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the
Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say
and what I should speak . And I know that His command
is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak , just
as the Father has told Me, so I speak ."
HEARD: Sticky. Stick to the rhema. Keep
your class together. Stay, teach and prophesy within
PARABLE 1/24/08: Today when we babysat our
grandson, we taught him the word “sticky.” He was
playing with a bow and so I took the back of it off so
it was sticky. The bow was made of many spiraled ribbon
strands of metallic gold. It was shiny and durable. He
had never felt “sticky” before and sure enough, it found
a place on him and he kept shaking his hand to get it
off. I laughed in delight watching his puzzled face as
he saw that this bow was on his hand. He was rid of it,
but it was not rid of him!
A little while later he made his way over to Wayne’s lap
table where he has his Bible and a bunch of sticky tabs
stuck all over the lap table. Our grandson discovered he
could peel them off, only to find that yet again, they
stuck to his fingers! I put one on his cheek and he
turned around but didnt know where it was. So I put one
on my cheek and when he saw it he laughed. All that
while I was teaching him the word, “sticky!” I then got
some scotch tape and we played more sticky games.
