FACILITATE DIVINE APPOINTMENTS FOR YOUR FAMILY!

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

I. WE NEED GODLY WISDOM TEAMED WITH PEOPLE SKILLS!

DOES THE CHURCH GIVE PEOPLE FISH? OR IS IT BETTER TO TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO FISH?

A. APPOINTMENT:

To assign, fix, set, EQUIP, delegate.

An arrangement of a meeting at a certain time and place.

ELEVATION TO A NEW STATION!

To provide with a full set of needed things.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Psalm 68:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm or Song of David. Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

B. SPONSOR:

A Godparent.

Backer, one that supports an activity.

To promote, fund, finance, underwrite, subsidizer.

C. FACILITATOR/FACILITATE:

To help things go smoothly.

To assist or aid.

To help things go further.

D. ENABLER/ ENABLE:

To make possible.

Entitle, permit, approve,

Empower.

The means or authority.

D. OFTEN WE THINK OF FACILATATION OR ENABLING IN A NEGATIVE LIGHT...

We need Christian to arise and reach out to the lost, the hurting, and bitter people and bring them to the point of receiving a BETTER PLAN!

II. COULD WE PROVE BEYOND THE PREPONDERANCE OF BIBLICAL

EVIDENCE GOD CAN TAP ONE MAN TO HELP HIS WHOLE FAMILY?

WHERE DO PEOPLE RUN TO? --- ???

GOD NEEDS A MAN, A WOMAN, A CHILD TO BE A VEHICLE OF

TRUTH TO STAND IN THE GAP.

FACILITATE DIVINE APPOINTMENTS FOR YOUR FAMILY!

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

A. Once I was talking to my Grandmother Mae Sumner at her home in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Grandma told me she felt that often God put a person or persons that were different from the others in a family. This person was sensitive to spiritual things and their call was to STAND IN THE GAP for family members that desired to go the wrong direction and make wrong choices.

Grandmother said this individual must needs to recognize that their role was for the whole family, not just their own journey.

B. I have often pondered this point?

Does God target certain individuals to pray, fast, and stand true to build a hedge of love and Divine blessings for others?

C. Could I prove this beyond a preponderance of the evidence in the Bible?

D. THERE WAS A MAN NAMED ABRAM --- LATER TO BE ABRAHAM --- THAT HAD A TENDER, OBEDIENT HEART TOWARD GOD. ABRAHAM WAS NOT A PERFECT MAN.

Abe had a tendency to let fear and self-doubt cause him to tell half truths and tell full lies at times.

E. GOD DID NOT NEED PERFECTION IN A MAN? God needed a man that would set himself aside.

F. ABRAHAM HAD A NEPHEW NAMED LOT.

Lot seemed to be satisfied LIVING ON THE SPIRITUAL BUBBLE. Lot was shallow and enjoyed living on Abraham’s blessings.

I CALL LOT: LINGERING LOT!

Genesis 14:12 And they took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
