Scripture reading: Romans 3:24-25

Praise the Lord. One of the greatest things about getting old is that there is a change in what you used to believe was the reality of your environment. The things that were absolutely real to you in your youth fade, and a new reality comes in that is absolutely real. I am trying to explain something here. The young people have a reality that is different from the reality that we who are older have. It is God that becomes more real to me than the things that I used to look at as precious and real. Those things fade away. They don’t have that value any more. The basis for your value changes, but it changes so gradually that you do not notice that it is changing. One day you wake up to find out that you have an altogether different perspective. It is like when you talk about the Blood of Jesus Christ. As young people you believe it, but somehow the reality of God and the Blood is not as tangible as it is now.

The Blood of Jesus Christ has become the basis of my life. I remember when I was young, one day Jesus took me and showed me the Blood and it laid a foundation in my life, that as long as I live, I will never forget it. You have seen the show that is called “The Passion of Christ.” It is a very gruesome thing, but then, what happened to me with Jesus when I was your age is that He took me through this with Him, and I was there. Do you understand? It did something to me and after that, my whole concept of when you say, “The Blood,” was changed.

So, the reality of God becomes more real. In other words, God is no longer a shadowy person out there that will come when you call Him, but He is someone that fills up the whole place. Amen. It is like you are walking into God; you are sleeping into God; you are talking into God, and then God is into you. It is difficult to explain. But what I want to say to you is: If you think of God, Who is He? Who is this God? You call Him God. Sometimes you must say Elohim; sometimes you must say Jehovah; sometimes you must remember that He is not any one person who you can call by one name that means all of Him because sometimes He is El Shaddai. Oh yes. When your soul is hungry, when your life is hungry, when you need God more than anything else, He is El Shaddai, the great Father/Mother God. He is both Father and Mother together, giving you milk to drink, giving you suck, satisfying the soul. Unless you have been in real trouble, you really won’t know God. I don’t want to tell you to pray to God to put you in trouble, but I am telling you that when you are in a really tight spot and you call out to God from the depths of your heart and your soul, that is the time you prove God to be more real than the very breath that you breathe. Praise God.
