THERE IS GREAT BEAUTY IN COMMUNION...

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

TEXT:

Hosea 14:5 I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth

his roots as Lebanon.

I. COMMUNION IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL... WE LOSE SIGHT OF THE GOAL WHILE

BURIED IN THE TRENCHES IN HAND TO HAND COMBAT.

A. SOMETIMES WE DO NOT CATCH THE FULL UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCRIPTURE,

AS THE HISTORY OF THE TIME IS NOT KNOWN TO US.

THE DEW IS IS A SYMBOL OF: 1. REFRESHING; 2. BROTHERLY LOVE; 3. HARMONY

Psalm 133:1 A Song of degrees of David.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

[2] It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's

beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

[3] As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for

there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

B. Mount Hermon inhabited by the Ephraimites, Linda & I got to stand and see Mount Herman

in the distance. Mount Herman is in northern Israel and southern Lebanon.

One of 3 Mountain peaks near Lebanon, snow melts and provides summer water...

C. THE HEAT IS INTENSE from May to October.

The heat makes the ground hard and the vegetation dries up and perishes unless the MOIST

NORTH-WEST COME IN EACH NIGHT OFF MOUNT HERMAN and the SEA.

Dew is chilled night air making moisture. This cold night air brings moisture and life to the whole

region

D. DEW IS RARE IN PALESTINE, there is no moisture in the hot summer, except coming off Mount

Herman. This dew keeps the plants alive and makes a morning fog to help cool the land.

E. THIS DEW OFF MOUNT HERMAN IS A GREAT SOURCE OF FERTILITY.

It is a symbol of GOD'S RICH BLESSINGS...

F. The withdrawal of this dew is considered a CURSE from God.

G. THE DEW OF MOUNT HERMAN IS IS A SYMBOL OF:

1. REFRESHING

2. BROTHERLY LOVE

3. HARMONY

Hosea 14:5 I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as

Lebanon.

II. OUR ENEMY DOES NOT USE FORCE ALONE, OUR ENEMY IS SO CUNNING IS USES

THE QUESTION OF DOUBT... HE HAS A GREAT EFFECT TOOL.

THERE HAS BEEN A GREAT BATTLE COMING AGAINST HARMONY, REFRESHING, &

COMMUNION FROM WITHOUT AND FROM WITHIN... THIS BATTLE GOES BEFORE THE

CREATION OF MAN...

A. GOD WANTED COMMUNION... God had all the angels and all the beings around Him, but

God desired something more, GOD LOOKED FOR MORE THAN A SERVANT, HE SEARCHED

FOR A FRIEND...

Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils

the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

B. In God's search for communion he created man...

GOD WOULD COME DOWN IN THE COOL OF THE EVENING AND WALK AND TALK WITH

HIS NEW COMMUNION BUDDY... MAN...

Genesis 2:18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him

an help meet for him.

C. God loved His man so much that GOD ALLOWED ADAM TO TAKE PART IN THE CREATION...

ADAM SAW ALL OF GOD'S CREATION--- ONE BY ONE AND HE PERSONALLY NAMED

EACH ANIMAL AS IT PASSED BY HIM... What a privilege to allow man to take part in this!
