Listening to God - Part 2


God wanted to visit the israelites, instead of talking to them through Moses. But the people were too afraid

Exodus 20:18. And all the people perceived the thunder and the lightning flashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance.
19. Then they said to Moses, "Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, lest we die."

Thus started the ministry of the prophets first with Moses. God spoke to His people through the prophets, but still ruled them corporately

But then it gets even sadder. Our wonderful God being rejected as ruler by the ones He had chosen. They wanted a King like the other nations had. They felt that would be better than having God lead them

.....Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.1 Samuel 8:7b

How sad that the Holy Spirit was rejected as guide and leader and defender. You can almost hear God's heart breaking. He had been wanting a people in fellowship with Him, a body of people who would be guided and defended by Him

And so the prophet became the outsider who kept being rejected and killed by the people, when the Father tried to speak to them.

So at last He sent His precious Son Jesus. And with Him a new day dawned. Once again there would be a people gathered together under the rulership of the Spirit of God. And so it came about as He had taught them that He had to go away so the Holy Spirit could come and He would teach them all things. Pentecost came and the Holy Spirit showed the believers a new way how to gather to ask His discernment on matters of importance. Where each person would bring the riches out of the indwelling all knowing God withing them. For this was the new covenant. When no one would have to teach his neighbour to know God.








A request from Katey Moreland

Dear friends,

I am about to embark on a new venture with the Lord – arranging a conference in Cork, south Ireland, on 20th-22nd Nov 2009. The theme is ‘Thanksgiving Celebration’. The most important preparation I can think of is PRAYER! I am grateful for all willingness shared to support me in this powerful way.

If you would like to join in prayer for this conference please see the Prayer schedule that Katey has designed
