“A Caleb Spirit”
“Nothing but the DOG in me”
Pastor M.L. Maughmer, Jr.
Numbers 13:25-33, 14:21-24 “And they returned from searching of the land after forty days. And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land. And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this [is] the fruit of it. Nevertheless the people [be] strong that dwell in the land, and the cities [are] walled, [and] very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they [are] stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, [is] a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it [are] men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, [which come] of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. 14:21-24 But [as] truly [as] I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD. Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice; Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it: But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it”.

Let me explain a little on my subtopic. Now back in the day that my sons call old school there was a man by the name of George Clinton that had a group called Parliament and in the early 80’s they had a song called “Atomic Dog”. One of the lines of that song said “Why must I be like that why must I chase the cat - nothing but the dog in me”. So I would use if I may as a subtopic “Nothing but the dog in me”. Now someone might say this preacher has lost his mind but pat yourself on the chest and say to yourself stay right here for a moment I promise you will understand it better by and by.
The Bible says in 2nd Thessalonians 2:7 “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way”. What is the mystery of iniquity – it simply means that mere people think they can set aside the law of God and live by the law of Do what thou wilt. They say stuff like I’m grown, I’m 3x7 plus, My momma done raised me. It’s my life and I can do what I want with it. I know you have heard them all before.
For those of you that are aware of Alester Crowley know that he basically is the father of modern day Satanism, he referred to himself as the great beast. He was in revolt against the moral and religious values of his time. Because of this, he gained widespread notoriety during his lifetime as "the wickedest man in the world." Although he died in 1947 he has remained an influential figure and is widely thought of as the most influential occultist of all time. References to him can be found in the works of numerous writers, musicians and filmmakers. The music and film industry is highly influenced by his way of thinking and is often mocking God and living the philosophy of Do what thou wilt. They literally push the envelope of morality and decency trying to see just how far they can go living by the philosophy of do what thou wilt.
