Thoughts From A Recent Sermon...

 

Falling At His Feet

Bro Josh Thilmony,  8/30/2015 

 

Revelation 1.17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.

 

When John saw Jesus afresh, he followed the pattern of many others in the scriptures that had visions or revelations of God. He saw the greatness of God, felt his insufficiency, and was then strengthened by God. 

 

Part 1 - Seeing the greatness of God

 

John had just seen Christ and noted various attributes which he saw.  Among them were the stars he held in his hand, the sharp sword of his mouth, and a countenance like the sun. 

 

The stars in his hand reveal the control that Jesus has over the ministry. He also controls our enemies, the church, and everything that affects us. When we get a fresh vision of Jesus and how much he is in control, it can stir up feelings like one song writer recorded:  "How could I ever, ever doubt him?"  Doubts and worries seem like corruption when we see Christ in all his power.

 

My family and I recently went white water rafting on the New River in West Virginia.  At a calm place in the river, the guide told us the river was 80 feet deep.  When we approached the rapids, he said that the rapids are the shallow places of the river. God spoke to me over the next several days and told me that deep faith brings calmness to life.  Shallow faith brings panic and drama. God is taking care of us. May the Lord help us to rest in him!

 

Part 2 - Feeling Our Insufficiency

 

Job saw God afresh during his great trial.  Job 42.5-6, then he said, "Wherefore I abhor myself..." 

 

Seeing God's greatness strikes up feelings of insufficiency within ourselves.  

 

This type of experience is preparation for Christian ministry. Our sufficiency is not of ourselves. 

  

Part 3 - Drawing Strength from Him

 

Daniel 10.7 - Daniel had a similar experience when he saw a vision from God, and said his comliness in him was turned into corruption.  He retained no strength, and fell upon his face. God then touched him and set him upon his hands and knees, and shortly afterward he stood upon his feet. 

 

God will add strength to your life if you let him.

 

Psalm 112 lets us know that those who love God's commandments won't be afraid of evil tidings. Like the calmness at a deep spot in a river, our faith in God can run deep enough to keep us secure in God when men and devils come against us.
