The Voice of God-Part 8

Posted By on Friday, March 11, 2016

Finally I talked to the Lord.  I said, “Lord, you know what?  Isn’t it a shame that there is so much opportunity for ministry and from all appearance, I’ve had it?  Father, I cannot go anymore.  I will not need another Pan American ticket.  I will not need a passport or visa. (Now for you people, I don’t need a visa, not for 30 days, but then I’ll be gone, but some countries you do.) I won’t need it.  I have only one more little journey left, and that is a couple of miles to the graveyard.  Lord, do not You think it is a shame?”  That’s how I did.
Then I said, “Father, there is so much to do by way of teaching Your word.  If You want me to travel some more, You will have to do something for me.”  I heard nothing, I saw nothing, I felt nothing except I somehow realized after a bit that I seemed to be all right.  So I said, “Beuttler, you seem to feel all right.  Why keep lying on the floor?”  I got up and felt okay.  I went back to school and had a spring in my step where before I could barely make it home.  I went up two steps at a time, went back to work. I do not know when that was.  How many years ago was that, Elizabeth?  About six years ago, and I’ve been going ever since.  Within 4 weeks, I went on a 40,000-mile trip around the world, and I have been going ever since.  I have made several round-the-world trips since then, and others.
I get two check-ups every year and the Doctor said, “If I didn’t know what was wrong, I would never believe it.  There is no problem, nothing amiss.  Are you traveling again?”  I said, “Sure will.”  He said, “Good for you.”
Here I am, remarkable.  That was parenthetical, but it might encourage some of you.  You never know who is in an audience with what problem.
We are coming back to Isaiah 50:4.  I had said to you that the Father taught Jesus how to speak – that is what it says, “a word;” when to speak, “in season;” to whom to speak, “to him that is weary.”  That’ is, the discouraged - those who want to call it quits.  Do you know what the quits are?  Do you have the quits in New Zealand? (laughter)  Is that a sickness down here too?
The quits is a contagious disease, especially in Bible School.  When one wants to quit, another wants to quit.  Peter had the disease when he was in Bible school.  He said, “I go fishing.”  The others said, “We will go with you.”  They got it right away.
