Walking with God

ARE YOU WALKING WITH GOD?                          {Amos 3:1-8}  PAINFUL PUNISHMENT FOR REBELLION

There is no question or debate … we need a real, genuine revival within us!

Revive to impart new health, vigor, or spirit to. ”

Revival to re-awaken religious faith & zeal.

The first step to revival would be to make sure we are walking with the Lord.  There is NO WAY that the Lord can or will impart to us new spiritual health & vigor if we are not walking with Him! And there is NO WAY that we can walk with Him, unless we repent of our sins.

So our goal should be to confess & repent of ALL known sin in our lives.  Then, and only then, we can start back  walking with the Lord. Then, possibly, if we have met all requirements, the Lord will impart to us new spiritual health, vigor, faith, and zeal!

I hope & pray that this day that we ALL will be walking with the Lord … and that we will be ready, willing, and waiting for that huge spiritual boost we call REVIVAL! Now then, concerning our walk with the Lord:

 

  1. HIS AUDIENCE – vss. 1,2

” “O children”        ” “whole family”

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. (Revelation 3:19)

 

  1. HIS ATTACHMENT – vss. 1,2

“I brought up from the land of Egypt”

“You only have I known of all the families of the earth”

II Thess. 2:13 “… God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

 

III. HIS ANGER – vss. 1,2

“Against you”

“I will punish you for all your iniquities”

  1. HIS APPEAL – vs. 3

” “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”(No, no, no, a thousand times no)

” The Lord WANTS to walk with us … but we must AGREE to walk with him!

” You and I cannot walk together unless we agree on a date, time, and place. And we cannot walk together unless we BOTH show up!

” The Lord is waiting for us to “show-up” and walk with him.

  1. HIS ANALOGIES – vss. 4, 5 ,6 (likeness)

” a lion       ” a snare      ” a trumpet

YOUR DESTINY IS DETERMINED BY CHOICE, NOT CHANCE
