Passion for God

Wednesday November 16, 2016

If you want to hear from God, be willing to listen and be willing to record what He tells you. Ron Cohn share several incidences of dreams of or finding coins and how God told him the meanings. The government follows the church. Righteousness exalts a nation. Brother Ron talked about the super-moon which appeared around the time of the election. The last one was in 1948, when Israel was given its statehood. He said that the Lord told him that there are some conditions that are the beginning of the third great awakening. Genesis 1:14 God said that the sun, moon, and stars are signs for the seasons and days and nights. He shared how the sun, moon, eclipses, and stars are signs pointing to God. John Bevere said that passion and an eternal perspective are needed in the Body of Christ. Revelation 3:15, 16 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. God does want us to be lukewarm! You can not know where lukewarm people stand. If you are hot or cold, everyone knows where you stand. Daniel had passion for God. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego had passion for God (Daniel 3:8-30). When you are put in the fire, God is with you. God had someone in the fire before they were thrown in. Jesus’ disciples had passion for Jesus (Acts 1-3). Jim Elliot was passionate for God as he ministered to the headhunter pygmies. He asked God, “Am I ignitable? Oh Lord, deliver me from the asbestos of other things.” What you do with the cross determines where you will spend eternity. Obedience or disobedience, the way you live as a believer, will determine how you will spend eternity. The church has been praying for eighteen months. A country wakes up when the church wakes up. The sin that is in the world is the same corruption that is in the church. The church is the gatekeeper to righteous living. The church is poised for revival. Praying earnestly is a protest against the devil. Jesus lived in the passion of God. Gethsemane means “oil press,” and that is where Jesus sweat like drops of blood. The blood of God came out of Him. Jesus took the sins on Him when He was in the garden. Other passionate men were: David, Joseph, Moses, Elijah, Stephen, and Paul. America has not known persecution, only disagreement and strife. ISIL stands for I’m Satan, I Lie; ISIS – I’m Satan, I Steal. SIGN – Secrets Indicating God’s News. It is important how we treat Israel. Martyrdom is coming to America. There is only one Body. Those who are being martyred are part of us. We are not so special in America. We are part of the Body. Donald Trump’s middle name is John. John was a forerunner. Trump is a forerunner of the re-establishing of a constitutional democracy. Luke 22:32 (I pray that your faith will fail you not.) We will have tribulation and persecution. Be willing to die for what you believe. Ron had a dream of a parking lot where all kinds of demonic activities were going on. He came and all the people were set free. Sick men were healed. Then he consecrated the land, and it disappeared. He had a dream of a white cloud and out of it poured blood, spraying blood over everything. Do not be afraid of dying. Be afraid of not pleasing God. Passionate living is powerful living. Between ordinary and extraordinary is passion. Deny the ordinary. Passion is the fuel to dream, the dare to believe, and goes where too many are afraid to go. Desire an understanding heart. A martyr is one who brings a witness. We think of being a martyr as being someone who dies for their faith. Live in faith, not in fear.
