A Lighthouse & Watchman - Now Think On This by Steve Martin

A Lighthouse & Watchman

Note: In a recent communication from good friends from Israel, I was reminded of this message the Lord gave me in Feb. 2016. Even so more valid today.  Steve Martin

“I am God. I have called you to live right and well. I have taken responsibility for you, kept you safe. I have set you among my people to bind them to me, and provided you as a lighthouse to the nations, to make a start at bringing people into the open, into light: opening blind eyes, releasing prisoners from dungeons, emptying the dark prisons.” (Isaiah 42:6-7, THE MESSAGE)

We have been hearing much in our Sunday gatherings on our roles as being watchmen. I take that word seriously, and act on it - to pray, to proclaim, to write accordingly, and then to post on our blog Love For His People. Even as the watchman of old sought the Lord, listened to His voice, and spoke out what they were told, I too want to be one who does that.

While being faithful as a watchman to bring the warnings that come with the territory, there is also always hope in the midst of it all, as that comes straight from the Father’s heart. His light brought forth, as a lighthouse, guides us through the sea of life.

Jesus’ love for the nations causes Him to bring awareness to His people of what is coming. His prophetic words, recorded in the historical Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, have proven over and over again of His loving actions. The Lord God of Israel, the Messiah, has continually sought to draw us to Himself through those writings, and current warnings.

Another practical, visual way the Lord has also demonstrated His light shining in the world has been through the ocean and lakeside lighthouses. Located on many coasts throughout the world yet today, these beacons of light through the centuries have given direction to the incoming vessels, and hope to the ones anxiously watching for a light to guide them safely into the harbor. They have stood tall while withstanding the raging seas and mighty storms that have pounded and battered at their foundations through the years.

Lighthouses are a vivid example of the Lord’s hope, standing strong and tall in the battle, shining forth the beam of hope to show us the way.

One summer in the late ’90s our family took the time for a vacation trip, to do the eight hours of travel from Charlotte to the Atlantic Coast of North Carolina. Our goal was to visit all seven lighthouses, from Currituck as the northernmost one, stopping at the most famous and tallest Cape Hatteras on the Outer Banks, with the final destination being close to the southern border with South Carolina.

Cape Hatteras on the North Carolina Outer Banks
We did it in the seven days we had. We started at the northern end, first with Currituck Beach Light Station, followed by Bodie Island Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Ocracoke Lighthouse, Cape Lookout, Oak Island Lighthouse, and finally Old Baldy, on Bald Head Island. Being that one is only accessible by water or air, we didn’t make it out to see it. Someday we may!
As lighthouses and as watchmen too, we have been called upon to stand strong, prepared in our spirits to announce the oncoming storms that seek to take out or overtake the Lord’s people. As lighthouses in the spiritual realm, watchmen are to stand ready to shine the light, the silver lining of hope, as the darkness seeks to consume the continents with its encroaching power. The Lord has given us the weapons of warfare and the fortitude established in our character to be the watchmen and the spiritual lighthouses.

We have been prepared for the war ahead.

Now think on this,

It’s A Faith Walk - Now Think On This by Steve Martin

It’s A Faith Walk
Now Think On This
Steve Martin

“But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" (Mark 4:40, NKJV)

It’s a faith walk. Really? Yes.

Have you ever tried doing something one way, and then realizing it doesn’t work, and only then do you actually do it the way it was meant to be done?

Imagine making a Dutch Apple pie by using ingredients you tasted in someone else’s, without the recipe? I am sure one or two have tried that. Anyone eat it after the first bite?

Or how about going on what was to be an adventurous mountain hike, but leaving behind a reliable compass, having but a little container of water and no amount of nourishing food for the twelve-mile journey, on a trail little have ever used? Get lost?

Ever try putting together the new Hanukkah or Christmas toy for the tot, thinking, “I got this!” only to find out in fact, two hours later, the kid is crying, the remaining five screws are still left in a pile along with some piece you have idea where it was to go, while frustration came in the front door an hour earlier? Yes, you have, dad. Me too. (I’ll stick to the accounting budget and let another do that construction stuff. Because the toilet still leaked after my great “repair job”.)

As I said, it really is a faith walk. But not because we have faith in ourselves, our natural talents, or the Doris Day song in that movie, “Whatever will be will be.” Que sera, sera. Really? That is walking in faith? Anybody can say that. Most do. And where does that get them? (Thanks Dr. Phil.)

Even putting our trust in that weekly paycheck, the stock market (up and down, up and down), or the retirement fund we spent years building and then lost in the last financial crash that occurred (and will occur again I believe) won’t work in the end.

So where is your faith? If tested, would it hold strong? Or is it like the house built on sand, only to crumble when the water comes in like a flood? I think you best find out now.

"But if you just use my words in Bible studies and don't work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards." (Matthew 7:26-27 THE MESSAGE)

I have learned that to grow my faith, that amount of which both you and I were initially given by the Lord Jesus at the start of our spiritual walk, you have to hear what He says (through the Bible, from another believer’s word our Lord uses, a prophetic message written and read by you, touching you, etc.) and act on it. Obedience produces faith. More obedience produces more faith.

Exercise builds up the cardio and the muscular system. Lack of exercise builds up the fat and the sluggishness. Which works three, five, ten years down the road? You know as well as I do.

Today you may be facing a decision. It will require doing something you have never done before. It might be a risk to take, a stepping out. It surely might even cause you to look up.

“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not smite you by day,
Nor the moon by night.

The Lord will protect you from all evil;
He will keep your soul.
The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in
 From this time forth and forever.
(Psalm 121: 1-8, NASU)

Believe it? Do you believe God’s Word? Many have tried it, proven it, and lived by it.

Walk by faith, not by sight, and do what He is calling you to do. I promise He will not fail you. He can’t. He is God.

Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).
