A Hunger Cry!
Summary: Summary: Even knowing the Lord, and the Holy Spirit; there is a cry in our hearts to know them even more We too often settle for a thimble full, when asking for an avalanche. Show Notes: • In all of our combined years, there is one thing we know, and that is what we do not know. • We are crying out for the complete fulfillment of Joel 2 • Lord, we believe, help our unbelief • His kingdom is the bottom line References: Colossians 1:27 KJV To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Joel 2:28 NASB And it will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions John 14:26 NIV But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you Mark 16:17, 18 BSB 17. And these signs will accompany those having believed: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18. they will pick up snakes with their hands, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not harm then; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will be made well.” Mark 9:24 NKJV Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” 1Kings 18:44 NIV The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.” So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘hitch up your chariot and do down before the rain stops you.” Mark 1:12 WEB Immediately the Spirit drove him out into the wilderness. Galatians 5:22, 23 NASB 22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23. gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 2 Kings 2:14 NIV He took the cloak that had fallen from Elijah and struck the water with it. “Where now is the Lord, the God of Elijah?” he asked. When he struck the water, it divided to the right and to the left, and he crossed over. Quotes: • We are not going to be satisfied with just a taste • We need the Holy Spirit; • We loose the desire to know and to have it. • Christ was not led, He was driven • Appropriate the answer • He is so much more real than the air we breathe Take Away: A hunger cry for the Lord is one that cannot be satisfied, it is an indescribable ache that will not accept a token taste.
