I have a message that has been burning on my heart that I need to share:
“A burning bush drew Moses, a burning church will draw the world.” -Leonard Ravenhill 🔥🔥
Unprecedented is a word many have been using to describe the COVID-19 virus. A crisis like we have never seen before. God brought my attention to something that was also unprecedented many years ago.
Imagine there has been a crisis going on for 400 years. Your family and relatives have all been affected by it. The crisis has killed generations of your ancestors. You want to do something about it, but feel confined by your own abilities. You make mistakes in this mindset and end up fleeing the country to escape your problems.
Until one day, God gets ahold of your life. And in this moment, an unprecedented thing happens: a burning bush is on fire in front of you, but does not lose its flame or consume anything. You’ve never seen anything like it before.
You see, the person I am referring to is Moses and the Israelites were facing a crisis, not Coronavirus, but the crisis of slavery. In Exodus 3, it says that Moses was a shepherd for his father in law and then one day, God appeared to him through a burning bush just one on one. This Bush was unprecedented for many reasons, but also because it never lost it’s flame.
It was in this moment of quarantine, this moment of isolation, that God revealed to Moses his task, his purpose, and most of all, God revealed Himself as The Great I Am! Once again, it was unprecedented!
This Sunday we saw many churches blazing for God through internet, streaming, and other creative methods. It was Unprecedented! These churches all cried out to God that no matter the circumstances, God was still going to be praised by His people!
In Exodus 3 we saw a blazing bush draw Moses, but I believe truly that if this unprecedented season of revival occurs, that the blazing church of Jesus Christ will in fact draw the world unto Him!
But how do we get there? We must:
- Seek the Bush: Are you seeking the presence of God in your daily life?
- Get Quarantined with the Gospel: Don’t let anything or anyone get in between your time spent with Jesus. Spend extra time in His Word to hear His Heart.
- Blaze as the Bush: Allow God to use you in any outlet possible. Whether it is through Facebook Live, Instagram, calling a friend up. Be the vocal vessel God wants to use in this season to reach more people for His kingdom.
What the Israelites faced was unprecedented. What Moses saw was unprecedented, and what God has in store for His church I believe is truly unprecedented. I have no idea what God has planned during this unprecedented season of our lives. But today, we saw a glimpse of what a blazing church looks like, my prayer however is that we will be like that blazing bush and never lose our flame. #Get
