Summary: Forget the former things. God’s ready to do a new thing in you.

  Study Tools

God love to do new things

Pioneers are those who try something new

Lewis and Clark- Pioneers

Then come settlers- They take this new found thing and settle it

Teach about it- form rules-cultivate- law and order

Then comes the ruling citizens-

Established- they hate change

The resent the people that bring change- THE PIONEERS

Someone discovers it- someone settles it-

then someone wants to keep it like it is

We see this in Church and in our homes

Washed up singers-

go from a jet- to single engine plane

Because- of what they’ve done in the past

“Well if they hadn’t cheated me, I’d be popular”- We he did, you’re not- move on

What make the clap of a wave- The old wave slapping against the new wave

Is 43:15

What’s the biggest obstacle of God doing something new-

What he’s done in the past

When God does something good, the church just wants him to repeat it

“Azuza” “Brownsville” “Toronto”

I don’t want to copy those moves of God

I want my own move- the One God wants for us

Why do we want to copy a method- stick to a formula-

WE don’t’ wanna listen to Jesus

People say, “WERE GONNA BE ANOTHER BROWNSVILLE”

God doesn’t want another Brownsville- He’s had a Brownsville

HE WANTS A FREEDOM FELLOWSHIP

You not doing a new thing, if you’re doing what God has already done in someone else

What God is saying, is more important the what He has said- Not a heretic

THE WOMAN IN ADULTERY- they knew what the word said

Were they willing to listen to what God was saying

Matthew 4:1-4- Not “proceeded” PROCEEDS

If we hear what God is saying- We can bring change to the point of REVIVAL

Hebrews 12:25-29

God speaks to His kids- Or he’s a really bad dad

GOD WILL NEVER BE IN CONTRAST TO HIS WRITTEN WORD

If were moving Forward- If we WANT TO DO A NEW THING

WE need to be hearing God-

There’s LOGOS- "word" RHEMA-

LOGOS- IS WRITTEN WORD

RHEMA- "word" God’s ever present word

You can sit in church and READ THE BIBLE-

DOESN”T PRODUCE FAITH

IF YOU WANT LOGOS TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE

You have to mix the HOLY SPIRIT with it-

THEN LOGOS- WILL BECOME RHEMA

“FAITH COMES BY HEARING….”WORD OF GOD”- RHEMA

You can buy the BIBLE On tape- never get faith

GUYS ON TV- never get life

When the word becomes alive- that’s when we get it-

PETER- HAD RHEAMA- When he walked on the water

11 had logos-

Don’t throw you pills down toilet with logos- “by his stripes”

If God tells you to throw them down the toilet- AND IT”S RHEMA- For God’s sake- throw them away

God may tell you to tear up insurance- “if you were a man of God u would too"

I DIDN”T GET THE CALL- YOU DID

God tells preacher how to GROW- THEY WRITE a BOOK- To tell you how to do it- That was their Rhema not yours

Acts 17:11

“received the word”- LIVING WORD- RHEMA- Their preaching

“Searched the scriptures”- LOGOS- to make sure it lines up

What hinders us? FORMER THINGS- We have to Forget the former things

JEREMIAH 1:10

That makes the religious people like you-

"We’re tearing everything DOWN!"- Lose a job real quick

MISSIONARY BIRTHDAYS- UNION CENTER

I’m not being hard on the church-

“lot of good people in the church”

I know- Edible food in dumpster
