“Who among us can live with the consuming fire? Who among us can live with continual burning?” These questions bring to mind the burning bush that was not consumed. Who indeed can live with the Spirit of God?
“He who walks righteously and speaks with sincerity,
He who rejects unjust gain
And shakes his hands so that they hold no bribe;
He who stops his ears from hearing about bloodshed
And shuts his eyes from looking upon evil;” (Isaiah 33:13-15)
“He will dwell on the heights,
His refuge will be the impregnable rock;
His bread will be given him,
His water will be sure.” (Isaiah 33:16)
All have been separated from God. He is life, and without Him we are spiritually dead while existing for a brief moment in mortal flesh. Because of His love, God made a way for life to be given to those who would believe the gospel. We are going back to Pakistan with the gospel, and now is the time to gather my thoughts regarding the twin subjects of the gospel and faith. It might take awhile, so let us start with a question and an assignment for those sitting at His Family Table.
Do you have to be spiritually alive (born again, regenerated) to hear the gospel?
Consider the last time the gospel message will be heard. (Revelation 14:6)
