Summary: Listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit!
(1 Chr 14:13-15) "When thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees..."
David sought the will of God concerning going out to battle.
God told him to go sit under the Mulberry trees, and wait for Him.
God said, "You will know I showed up when you here a sound of moving in the Mulberry trees."
The wind is a picture of the Holy Ghost.
Jesus told Nicodemus...
> [John 3:8] "The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit."
And, in the book of Acts we see the sending forth of the Holy Ghost as a WIND...
> [Acts 2:2] "And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting... And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost..."
God told David, listen for the rustling in the Mulberry trees...
Then You Will Know That I Have Showed up!
What is the difference between someone who just warms a pew and someone who is sold out for God?
What is the difference between someone who is looking out for themselves, and one looking out for Others?
What is the difference between someone who is easily offended, and someine that’s trying to keep the church strong?
What is the difference between someone who comes looking for a pat on the back, and someone who comes looking for a word from God?
What is the difference between someone who has come to get it over with, and one who has come to get in?
Many who claim to be Christians are just religious people.
They go through the motions...
> Carry a KJV Bible...
> Say Amen at the proper time...
> Know when to sit... Stand...
But, they have nothing solid inside.
> Do you know what the problem is?
> They have never heard the wind in the Mulberry trees.
> They have never had a real encounter with God!
The Wind in the Mulberry Trees
I. (Jer. 10:10-13) When the Wind Blows.
A. When the Wind Blows, it Burdens the Tabernacle.
1. It wakes the preacher.
> Oh how we need a Preacher waking wind to blow through here.
2. It wakes the saints.
> The church is asleep while the world is going to hell.
3. When God’s wind blows through the church...
> When we see the demonstration of the power of God, IT GIVES THE CHURCH A NEW BURDEN!
> Oh Lord, send the wind from heaven, and awaken our souls.
WHEN THE WIND BLOWS IT BURDENS THE TABERNACLE!
B. When the Wind Blows, it Breaks the Tough.
1. Jesus said: "The wind bloweth WHERE IT listeth.."
> God’s Spirit goes where He wants to go.
> There is no power to stop the Holy Spirit of God.
> He goes where He "listeth."
2. There are family members and friends of whom we think there is no hope of salvation.
> But, let the wind of God blow through, and even the most hardened will be broken!
> We cannot convict the sinner.
> We cannot persuade anyone to Christ...
> But, oh that a wind from heaven would blow through this place!
3. The wind of God will drive the wayward saint back to the fold.
> The Lord is our Rock, in Him we hide, a shelter in the time of storm!
