Quick romp through God’s communication programs; (If you have problems with God, you may not want to read this post.)


  God’s Communication Program 1.0 Creating a special place, He fellowshipped with us. We blew it. "So the LORD God banished them from the Garden of Eden" (Gen 3:23) Communication severed.

God’s Communication Program 2.0  Selecting a few exceptional people "the Sovereign LORD never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets." (Amos 3:7) Israel  blew that.

God’s Communication Program 3.0 (Pentecost)  "In the last days,' God says, 'I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy." (Acts 2:17) "you have received the Holy Spirit, and He lives within you, (1 John 2:27) so you don't need anyone to teach you what is true."

So far, so good with 3.0. (It busted out of Israel and circled the globe.) The only glitch in this program is in receiving messages. Some receive better than others but there is a lot of noise. Messages gets corrupted. Then there are charlatans who pretend they hear. Then there is hacking by the enemy.

4.0 Maybe after God hits the delete button He then fellowships with us in Heaven.
