"The Potters Wheel And The East Wind--Part #3"
Judgment #4 “Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.” Psalm 48:7. When the EAST WIND Blows, Our Strong Wills Will Be Broken! God wants broken vessels and all that has been built on man’s strength will be brought down. God will take us into His hand as the potter does to clay and crush our will. He will disrupt our everyday schedules and give us His plan for the day. “Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” I Corinthians 3:13-15
FOUNTAIN BECOMES DRY
Judgment #5 “Though he be fruitful among his brethren, an east wind shall come, the wind of the Lord shall come up from the wilderness, and his spring shall come up dry, and his fountain shall be dried up: he shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels.” Hosea 13:15. The East Wind blew upon Ephraim, and his fountain and spring dried up. As the East Wind blows upon us, we will begin to experience a dryness which will drive us to our knees, longing after God like never before. The presence of God will withdraw so that we can judge ourselves. This new condition will cause us to look into the deep recesses of our hearts for the hidden sin. Through much soul searching, iniquity of the heart will surface so that we can remove it from our hearts.
The Presence of God is a blessing that should never be taken for granted by a people or a nation. I think about a woman who had a wonderful husband who loved her very much and provided very well for her, but she took him for granted and one day he left her. Immediately, she realized how much she truly loved him and how good he was, bringing her small gifts to show her his love, but now he was gone. She was so sorry that she had abused his goodness; nevertheless, she surrounded herself with memoirs that would remind her daily of him. She decided to leave his remaining clothes in their closet and kept his picture on the mantle, thinking about him constantly, praying he would come back to her. She had purposed in her heart to never give him up and wait upon his return. One day, there he was at her door. She ran to meet him, put her arms around his neck and held him tight and said, “I’ve changed and I will forever be your faithful bride.”
Sounds very much like what happened in our dry spell - - we will have to surround ourselves with His Word, read it daily, be faithful to Him, whether we feel Him or not, continue to assemble with the brethren. Then one day, we will feel His presence and our spring will be filled. Our fountain will run over and never again will we let Him go. Let us persevere to the end. If we don’t understand the East Wind Of Spiritual Dryness, then it’s possible to backslide back into the world. Beloved, let’s RUN THE RACE and WIN!
JUDGMENT ON LUSTS
Judgment #6 “He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind. He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea: And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations. So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire; They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths, The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel. For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.” Psalm 78:26-32. The East Wind Will Judge Our Lusts.
An excessive desire in any area is considered a lust. There are lusts of the eyes and lusts of the flesh. These lusts are accompanied by a spirit of covetousness, habits that are never satisfied. The children of Israel in their wilderness wanderings were never satisfied because their appetites (lusts) had not been circumcised. If you have a desire for the finer things of life in excess, as the East Wind blows, we will be stripped of all materialism until the only thing left will be our desire to love and serve Jesus.
