Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.   Heb 11:1

      HFCC | Message from the Pastor


   Every now and then, I will, in too short a time span, give my computer several commands at once.  But because I was impatient and did not wait for the computer to process one command at a time, the computer freezes up for a few seconds and does nothing.  Eventually it will usually process the commands in the exact order received.  Once in a while it will totally freeze, and I have to start all over again.  Sometimes even re-booting the computer.
   There are times when our minds get overloaded with too many things to ponder and our mind...freezes.  For me it is when there are too many deep concepts, all of which I want to take in, but the order in which to place them in the files in my mind gets jammed up.  What does not help, is that when we receive fresh revelation it often requires us to discard some old things that we may have cherished as rhema for years.  Rhema, of course, is the revealed word of God as transmitted to us through the Holy Spirit.  Now, of course, the Spirit can often speak through men, and He does, to give us this fresh revelation.  To complicate matters further the Spirit may be speaking to us also by putting definition and perspective on what we have heard.  Perhaps to help you understand this concept, think of eating food and then we have to digest what we have just eaten.  It is the digestion process that nourishes us, not the eating.  Eating without digesting will cause great harm to our bodies.
   So it is when we sit in multiple meetings with different speakers but all of whom have anointed messages.  What do we do with all the information?  Well some of it is extraneous and should be discarded.  If we are not sure of all that was said, listening again to the message, if possible, may be in order.  Today with the magic of the internet, even messages spoken in other places, are available on the net.  Once we have a firm understanding of what was said, now we must engage our discernment and decide what was for me.  Which of these great words were for my walk?  What will become part of my personal rhema?
   "Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ..." (2 Cor 10:5)  We must sift even good thoughts; which may be good for others but may not be where Jesus is taking us.  So the first test is always the Word of God. Does what I just heard line up with the Word?  If it does then we move to the second test; is this for me?  A valid word may not be for us.  It could be for Jews for instance.  It could be for the Body of Christ in general or a Pastor or leader.  If it does apply to me than how does Jesus want to put this word in play in my life.  We should always be evaluating what we hear as to how does this change my walk?  We cannot reject fresh revelation because it is a different from the old.  Jesus said, "And no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new, for he says, 'The old is better.'"  (Luke 5:39)
   The prophet Daniel was told by the Spirit of the Lord,"But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."  (Daniel 12:4)  The world is drunk on the information glut that comes spewing forth from the internet and the 24 hr. cable news cycle.  The "glut" cause men to run to and fro because they do not know what to do.  But God's book of revelation is being opened and is pouring out fresh revelation that we MUST know in these the last days.  If we do not have this new revelation, we could perish.  "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge."   (Hosea 4:6)  Choose wisely my friends!
