GOD Is Weird !

CHRISTmas

Is 55:6-12

*******************************************************

Is 55:6-12

6) Seek ye the LORD while HE may be found, call ye upon HIM while HE is near:

7) Let the wicked forsake his ways, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him

return unto the LORD, and HE will have mercy upon him; and to our GOD, for HE will

abundantly pardon.

8) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the

LORD.

9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10) For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither,

but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the

sower, and bread to the eater:

11) So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void,

but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent

it.

12) For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills

shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their

hands

GOD is weird!

Have you ever stopped and looked at the way GOD does things on earth? It’s weird! It’s

not the way we think things should or would be done!

One of the earliest examples of this in scripture is found in Genesis when GOD tells

Abram to leave Ur of the Chaldees and not to take any of his family with him.

Apparently not happy with Abram’s disobedience, (he took his nephew Lot with him)

GOD doesn’t speak to him again until he separates himself from his nephew. Even

though Abram takes Lot with him GOD still sends angels to save Lot from the sins of

Sodom and Gomorrah.

Next GOD saves the world, (sort of) by having Noah build a huge ark on dry land

warning him of a flood that will be caused by excessive rainfall when previously there

has never been rain! Beyond that HE chooses a man who when the flood is over gets

drunk and naked.

A little later HE appears in a bush, setting it ablaze and yet not consuming it? HE then

speaks to a man through the noise of the burning bush and tells him to take off his

shoes! Now HE wants this man to tell Pharaoh, the King of the most powerful nation of

the world and the lowest of all the gods of this world, to give away the most useful

thing he possesses; his slaves(!) all because some burning bush GOD named “I AM”

says so!(Ex 3:13-15)

Now backup to Abram. Place yourself in the position of Sarai his wife. Her husband

says to her one day that GOD has told him that they are to leave and leave everything

and everybody they know behind them. Quite naturally she might ask, “and where are

we to go?” Abram then says, “I don’t know, HE didn’t say! HE said HE’ll tell me.” Put

some wet towels on his head and tell him to lie down in the shade! That would be my

first thoughts. Does Sarai do that? Nooooooo, she packs up the old Studa-camel and
