How Can We Tell When God Is On the Move?

(This is a picture I took a few weeks ago of Cave #4 at Qumran, in Israel, on the Dead Sea. This is the cave where the Isaiah Scroll was found.)

First of all, if you’re someone who reads what I write on this blog - thank you. I have been out of the loop recently. One reason is my Israel trip. Then, as a pastor, sometimes it gets very busy, and that’s how it’s recently been. Add to this that our beloved dog So-Fee has been struggling health-wise. We’ve already planned to euthanize her twice, only to have her rebound. We love this dog who is, in many ways, a family member to us.

At our church (Redeemer Fellowship in Monroe) we’re beginning a 5-night teaching/study on “The Moves of God in History.” Tomorrow is our first session. I’ll be teaching on Acts chapters 1-4. What we see there is, obviously, God on the move. Are there certain things in these chapters that define any real move of God? I think so. Are there things that were needed at that time but are not essential to every actual God-move? I think so. Tomorrow night I’ll separate out the essential things from the contingent things.

If you want to join the discussion it’s at:
