Talking out of asses
« on: February 13, 2018, 11:05:21 AM »
I been looking at how God speaks to His people and various ways He does that. 

The assumption is that all prophets, seers etc...people who are conduits for God's revelation and voice are all basically people, that He requires humanic tongues to do this.

However, it seems that God can and does even use a Ass's to do this.

Therefore, i can only assume from that, that prophets, seers etc..are not just of the human variety as evidenced with the talking Ass scripture.  I capitalise Ass because God made it holy speaking through it.

God is, for one so powerfull, strangly economic in his use of supernatural means to speak to us.

His basic, standard, ordinary method is the bible, sermons and other Christians.
He backs these up with his Spirit giving us a prod or a kick to ensure we are paing attention.

What i have to constaintly remind myself is that God is soveriegn and he can use what ever is the most appropriate method to speak to people.

I don't think my ass is as holy as Balaam's.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

Back in 1978, God spoke to me through a billboard advertisement for Guinness!
I used it when I wrote to my parents about me recently becoming a Christian, at which they had been horrifed.

The result was that both parents came to the Lord! Afterwards, my mother always claimed that I could not have written such a letter!
When she died last year, I found it carefully wrapped up and preserved amongst her effects.

I don't think that Guinness's advertising agency intended to speak for the Lord when they came up with that advert.
