4. The five levels of waiting; 5. Waiting with Joy and gladness 6. Long waits and sudden answers; 7. TEPID WAITING; 8. Waiting with a fire in my bones!

PSALMS 37:7 REST IN THE LORD, AND WAIT PATIENTLY ON HIM: FRET NOT THYSELF ---

#1.LAZARUS A LESSON IN WAITING ON JESUS AND A SUDDEN ANSWER:

John 11:39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was

dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh; for he hath been dead four days.

WAIT --- DEAD MAN --- HE STINKS JESUS!

4 DAYS, ---96 HOURS, --- 5,760 MINUTES, ---345,600 SECONDS --- WAITING IN A FUNERAL HOME IS SLOW TIME MOVEMENT.

JOHN 11: 43 LARAZUS COME FORTH!

4 DAYS, ---96 HOURS, --- 5,760 MINUTES, ---345,600 SECONDS ---

SUDDENLY JESUS CAME ...

======================================================

#2THE WAITING AT JERICHO: 40 YEARS THE ENEMY KNEW THEY WERE COMING,

40 YEARS THEY BUILT STRONGER WALLS, THE SUDDEN ANSWER

6 DAYS MARCH ONE TIME A DAY --- AND WAIT:

6 DAYS, --- 144 HOURS, 8,640 MINUTES...

THEN THAT IS NOT ALL, THE 7TH DAY ADDS MORE WAITING ...

6 DAYS PLUS 1,--- 144 HOURS PLUS 24! MORE168 HOURS,

--- 8,640 MINUTES PLUS 1,440= 10,O80 MINUTES

13 WALKS AROUND --- 13 TIMES THE PEOPLE ON THE MIGHTY WALLS MOCKED THEM.

Joshua 6:20 So the people shouted when the priest blew the trumpets;

and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound, AND THE PEOPLE SHOUTED WITH A

GREAT SHOUT, THAT THE WALL FELL FLAT, SO THAT THE PEOPLE WENT up into the city, every

man straight before him, and they took the city.

THEN SUDDENLY GOD ---

7 DAYS , --- 168 HOURS, --- 10,O80 MINUTES LATER GOD, SUDDENLY GOD MOVED.

======================================================

#3JOSEPH IS A LESSON ON WAITING AND HURT AND A SUDDEN ANSWER.

Genesis 37:2 These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old,

was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah,

and with the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives; and Joseph brought unto his father

their evil report.

A 17 YEAR OLD BOY LEAVING HOME, 30 YEAR OLD AT REUNION:

13 YEARS OF WAITING:

WAIT BOY WAIT:

13 YEARS, --- 156 MONTHS, --- 676 WEEKS, --- 4,745 DAYS, --- 113,880 HOURS

Genesis 41:46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout

all the land of Egypt.

SUDDENLY JOSEPH’S BROTHERS CAME TO EGYPT,

13 YEARS, --- 156 MONTHS, --- 676 WEEKS, --- 4,745 DAYS, --- 113,880 HOURS

SUDDENLY GOD’S PLAN WAS RELEASED...

=====================================================

#4. Abraham learns to trust God as he waits.

RENT A U-HAUL AND GET OUT OF HERE... A 75 YEAR OLD MAN WAITS 25 years?

Genesis 12 :1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, GET THEE OUT of thy country, AND FROM THY KINDRED, AND FROM THY FATHER’S HOUSE, UNTO A LAND THAT

I WILL SHEW THEE:

2. I will make thee a great nation, and I will bless

thee, and make thy name great: and thou shalt be a

BLESSING!

3. I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them

that curse you: and in thee

shall all families of the earth be blessed.

4. And Abram was 75 when he departed out of Haran.

YOU CAN NEVER PLEASE GOD UNLESS YOU BELIEVE HIS PROMISES,AND THEN TAKE ACTION TOWARD THE PROMISE. THE LESSON IS MORE THAN WAITING, THE LESSON IS TRUSTING AND BELIEVING.

A. GOD REQUIRED A SEPERATION --- ME OR THEM?

WHY DID ABRAHAM HAVE TO GIVE UP HIS HOME?

LIFE IS A PROCESS, IT IS MUCH MORE THAN A DESTINATION --- JOURNEY TO GOD!

B. GOD SEES WHAT IS BEST DOWN THE ROAD, NOT JUST TODAY!

C. ABRAHAM’S FAITH CALLED HIM TO LET GO OF WHAT WAS SAFE, AND STEP INTO THE

UNKNOWN. --- LEAVE YOUR COMFORT ZONE!

D. ABRAHAM HAD TO KNOW THAT FAITH STARTS AS A SEED.

E. GOD EXPANDS HIS PROMISE TO ABRAHAM, BUT THE WAIT GOES 20 MORE YEARS.

WAIT:

20 years, --- 240 months, --- 1,040 weeks, --- 7,300 days, --- 175,200 hours

Genesis 15: 3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born

in my house is mine heir.

4: And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir;

but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir,

5: And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars,
