 Belive in the One that the Father has sent

Greg and I were talking tonight after not having talked with each other for a long time. Greg and I met I think before he even had this site, I think he only had the site for The Revival we Need book and the one with Sermonaudio. I use to lead a forum called "Miracle that follow the Plow" I see that someone else is moderating under that title now. My intent was to encourage the church with testimony about the Lord and what He is doing. People don’t care to much about what scriptures you know or what you have done for Jesus, they want to know what Jesus has done for you and will He do it for them. If all you have is a head full of knowledge, then you don’t have anything. There are doctors of divinity that are now in hell. On the forum I shared many things that the Lord had done in my life, amazing things that still blow me away, not because of me, but because of Him. After a while I stopped posting because for the most part, I was the only one posting about anything. There were a few others and I thank those who did post. I found in that time that most believers would much rather discuss their opinions and try to argue about what they believe certain scripture say than to share what the living Lord Jesus is doing in their life, Paul talks about these people in 1 and 2 Timothy, among other places. The churches are full of people who talk about the problems in the churches, what God will do one day, what He did way back whenever, and they like to discuss their opinions about scripture. There isn't much to loose when you are just trying to prove a point, but you have everything to loose when you are willing to put down your guard and just let God be LORD. The problem never gets solved until we realize the problem is ME.

Greg asked that I share what we talked about on messenger. I figured the best would be to just post our conversation. “Greg if you don’t like it you are welcomed to deleted it.”

Next is that conversation.

Beaux says:
My brother in law said he talked to you today or yesterday. He said you said to tell Mr. Pilgrim to email you.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
lol
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yep
[sermonindex] Greg says:
how’s things going
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
He has been telling me about some one named Keith Daniel that he likes
Beaux says:
from your site.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
ohh yes
Beaux says:
Things are going good.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
this man has blown me and many away!
[sermonindex] Greg says:
I have one of his message featured on the front page
Beaux says:
I have not listened to him yet, but I will soon.
Beaux says:
Back to your question.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
so have you been to Sermonindex in awhile?
Beaux says:
Things are going very good and at the same time very tough.
Beaux says:
Revival has not happened but I think I can smell it.
Beaux says:
I still go to the web site from time to time. I have gotten some of Cymbal and Corrie Ten Boon from your site.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
Smiley face symbol
Beaux says:
The Lord has been doing some great things and has been moving on me
[sermonindex] Greg says:
man I remember the days when I was starting off and you were a HUGE help to me
[sermonindex] Greg says:
wow
[sermonindex] Greg says:
explain
[sermonindex] Greg says:
how’s your prayer life
Beaux says:
I mean ok
Beaux says:
It has been in the toilet until the last few weeks.
Beaux says:
about 3 weeks ago something happened to me.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
hmm don’t flush it
Beaux says:
I was up at about 9 or 9:30 a Saturday evening. I was getting ready for my Sunday school class that I teach.
Beaux says:
We are studding the Old Testament. Currently in Leviticus
[sermonindex] Greg says:
ok
Beaux says:
I began reading and just looking for what I wanted to cover and what I was not going to cover. I became convicted and knew it just was not right. I closed my Bible and said, "God I can't do this, I have to have a word from You. Lord I must have some thing from you."
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
I then got down and began to pray, just really more of just sitting there quite on my knees, but asking the Father to speak to me.
Beaux says:
about 2 or 3 hours later He showed me to turn to something in Leviticus about the cleansing of the Leprous house. How that was a picture of the lost, sin, and Christ.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
wow
Beaux says:
He would tell me what the scriptures would mean and then would show me scriptures in the New Testament that would prove the point. I was not using a concordance, index, or anything. He would just point to where I needed to look.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
wow
Beaux says:
I looked at the time after what I thought was only a few minutes and it was 3:30 am
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
I said to myself that I have got to get to bed. But as soon as I got up I just felt so strongly to sit back down.
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
So I said to God, "Lord, If you will continue to show me stuff, then I will stay right here with you." I continued for another hour.
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
And then decided to go to bed. I laid there for about 10 or 15 minutes and just had to get back up.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
LOL
Beaux says:
At 5:30 I just felt like that was it, and it was time to go to bed. I immediately went to sleep and woke up at 6:30. Never feeling better.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
praise the Lord!!!
Beaux says:
All day I kept on thinking that surely I am going to crash
Beaux says:
just pass out from being tired. and only 2 times in the midst of disbelief I started to fall asleep. Both time I repented to God and just woke right back up.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
wow
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
I went to bed about 11 the following night and it was as if I had not missed any sleep. at all
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
All week I kept having incredible times in the word. He answered so many questions that I had had for so long. You know, verses that never made since.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
bless God
Beaux says:
It was not like the first night, but still incredible.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes I believe it
[sermonindex] Greg says:
great testimony brother
Beaux says:
Last night this is what happened to me'
Beaux says:
I was sitting here praying.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=4633
[sermonindex] Greg says:
you have to hear this message
[sermonindex] Greg says:
!!!
Beaux says:
ok. Let me tell you this first
Beaux says:
The Lord told me to step down from the Voice of the Martyrs. Short story is, He showed me that I should not have done that to begin with. The Lord called me to preach a long time ago and I never would submit. I am now submitting to that calling.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
!!!
Beaux says:
I was praying and I asked the Lord. "Lord, I know that you have told me that you want me to preach, but Lord I don't know how. I think you want me to be an evangelist, but I just don't know if that is something that I have dreamed up or not. Lord, please show me.
Beaux says:
Immediately this verse came to my mind. "And I shall teach transgressors Your ways"
[sermonindex] Greg says:
wow
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
Do you know where it is? I did not have a clue at that moment.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
And I shall teach transgressors Your ways
[sermonindex] Greg says:
Psalm 51:13
Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
(Whole Chapter: Psalm 51 In context: Psalm 51:12-14)
[sermonindex] Greg says:
I knew it was there
[sermonindex] Greg says:
I just doubled checked
[sermonindex] Greg says:
thats powerful!!!
Beaux says:
I thought for a second or 2. And I turned to Proverbs 3:5-6. I thought, I is right behind that. I was way wrong.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
brother
Beaux says:
You have it right.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes
[sermonindex] Greg says:
I knew it before I looked man that’s a great calling
[sermonindex] Greg says:
the Lord has restored you to bring salvation.. to the unsaved and for you to have the joy of the Lord
Beaux says:
I started to look to my Bible program on the Computer. I put my hand on the mouse and then pulled it off. I said, "NO. Lord if you have something to show me then you can tell me where it is."
Beaux says:
I heard Psalms 51
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
I have to admit that at first I doubted.
Beaux says:
I began to read any way. When I came to that, Man my heart just filled with joy.
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
But the who chapter is for me. He tought me these things in the chapter.
Beaux says:
1) We must confess our sins before the Lord and repent.
Beaux says:
2) we must may our questionable ways right.
Beaux says:
3) We must confess Christ openly
Beaux says:
4) we must obey the Holy Spirit promptly and fully.
Beaux says:
All of this is in this chapter. It would take to much time to completly discuss this verse by verse.
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
I was sharing this with my brother in law, the one you talked to, and God was showing him the same thing, but in Jeremiah
Beaux says:
Isn't that amazing
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes it is
Beaux says:
We had a preacher come Sunday and his point was that God is wanting to move now. NOW.
Beaux says:
That God wants to move NOW and Satan is wanting to stop Him, if we let Satan, then he will.
Beaux says:
This has been ringing in my head the last few day.
[sermonindex] Greg says:

[sermonindex] Greg says:
im starting a prayer meeting in my church
Beaux says:
I have been filled with expectation the last few days like never before.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
under the pulpit in the boiler room like Spurgeon’s church
Beaux says:
That is great about the prayer meeting
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yea I need grace brother
[sermonindex] Greg says:
pray for me
Beaux says:
You have it.
Beaux says:
That is grace.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
if the Lord brings me into your remberance do it
[sermonindex] Greg says:
my church is hard and cold
[sermonindex] Greg says:
and really needs God to move
Beaux says:
Let me show you another verse that God gave me.
Beaux says:
Look at John 5:32.
Beaux says:
This is a verse about Jesus really, Where Jesus is talking about the Father testifying about Him. But God spoke this verse to me, for me the other day. Not some god ego trip or nothing, but that all the things that God the Father has said about me is true in the spirit real, I am not experiencing them physically because of me.
Beaux says:
I am beginning to experience them here, NOW.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes
[sermonindex] Greg says:
brother it really sounds like the Lord is working in your heart
[sermonindex] Greg says:
dont look back take the plow and move forward
[sermonindex] Greg says:
time is short, and our days are short
Beaux says:
I know, and it just blows my mind. Because I am not worthy. I am such a lowsey example.
Beaux says:
I saw something that was really great.
Beaux says:
I saw a documentary on the 1904 Wales revival and on Evan Roberts. Most of it was taken from Evan Roberts diary.
Beaux says:
It was amazing.
[sermonindex] Greg says:

[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes I saw it also
Beaux says:
I am sure you know a lot more about it than I.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yep
[sermonindex] Greg says:
lol
Beaux says:
I was on the edge of my seat.
Beaux says:
How the Lord would come and visit Him.
Beaux says:
You know, I use to think that the most incredible way for the Lord to speak to you would be by vision or dream.
Beaux says:
but it is not
[sermonindex] Greg says:
the word
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
I will show you. One sec
Beaux says:
You remember when Aaron and Miriam accused Moses.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes
Beaux says:
They said "does God only speak to Moses"
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yep
Beaux says:
Do you remember what God said to Miriam and to Aaron how the ways that He speaks to His servants
Beaux says:
It is in Numbers 12:6 - 8
Beaux says:
read it.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes
Beaux says:
I know you always have the Word close by
Beaux says:
Is that amazing or what.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
mouth to mouth
[sermonindex] Greg says:
face to face
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes
Beaux says:
Man, I have stopped looking for visions and dreams.
[sermonindex] Greg says:

Beaux says:
The Lord has given them before, but I say now, "Lord just speak to me. show me what is keeping You from being able to speak to me.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes wow brother this is great
[sermonindex] Greg says:
share some of this on SI
[sermonindex] Greg says:

[sermonindex] Greg says:
its encouraging me to seek after the Lord
Beaux says:
I don't know if it is as much seeking Him, as it is standing and letting down your guard before the Lord and standing as it would be spiritually naked before the Lord. Because Christ dwells within us doesn't He.
[sermonindex] Greg says:
yes
