May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ, is about voice.
I must say it is an honor to share the word of the Lord with my brothers and sisters in Christ …. I know I’ll get a lot more of you than you are of me, and glory to God for that.
I did not know what to talk about in this first opportunity, but the Holy Spirit of the Lord is so wonderful … and Told Me … talk about the pot … then we will talk about “The Pot”.
Jeremiah 18: 1-5.
The vase Potter
As the day word of the Lord, in this passage, the prophet Jeremiah is expresso to the potter’s house to observe the process of the vessel and also as the same word, we know que this vessel is made of barro.Mas what kind of clay ? And the clay, formless and without resistance Reaches the state vase?
Analyzing the process of the vessel, we will find That It can be done in four parts, let’s look at each one:
Part 1 – The choice of clay and Tanning:
There are over 200 different types Approximately of clay, but only eight are suitable for making the vessel. Then the potter, goes in search of clay, clay que he knows what is best to do that pot que is already in your mind, but the potter already know what kind of vessel will make and it will use this new vaso.Ele seeks and finds the clay in the middle of many other types of clay, sometimes with dirt, sometimes mixed with pebbles, Then the potter collects clay, clean the mud and the clay separates barro.Então now will stay Separately, in tanning phase, because the potter knows even the smell of clay, he knows que the clay remains to stay in tanning to get rid of all the smell is not pleasant to potter. At que stage God was looking for you, Then he found in the middle of so many people, I found you, because he knows what his potential and que he will use you, but maybe you have a few little things que Prevent you from being pot perfect, so the potter, will collect, carefully will remove what Prevents you from being the vessel and will separate thee, this separation phase you’ll be a long time, because God just wants to see and feel in you what nice to it .you will spend a lot of time alone with God, probably no one will approach you and all you need, the Lord proverá.Quanto higher the design of God in your life, the longer you will stay in tanning.
Part 2 – Air Wand
At que stage the potter need to knead the clay to remove all air bubbles que are formed in clay, the potter kneads the clay so que there is in bolhinha because pot with bolhinha may soon crack and crack, and vessel mayor, not crack or split .
What are these bubbles of air in us? It is our pride, our selfishness, our self-confidence if you are separate vessel can not be proud, Then the Lord will allow you to be humiliated, trampled, crushed, to not have any more bolhinha, is a painful step, but even so it is Necessary and surely God will not let you alone.
3rd. Part – Modeling
At que stage the vessel will be modeled, the potter works tirelessly in the pot, all the team, Potter’s eyes are on the vessel, modeling, shaping, and again plays a little water, stop, look to see how it’s getting and continues modeling , to form the way of the vessel que was in his mind from the início.Agora God is working in you modeling you, the Lord’s eyes are on you all the team with special attention, the water que Unlike the Potter put in the pot the models, are the gifts que God wants to put you on que stage, you will start to receive from God, you have to give you, to enable you, for you to be able to do the work That It will give, Then you can get, anointing jacket, spiritual gifts, etc …
But for the moment the potter and accomplish it looks que the vessel is leaving the mold, Then the master breaks the vessel and starts all over again, will crumple a bit and model again. God stopped to watch you and saw he had something que que was not pleasing, Then you will be again kneaded and shaped, but que does not please God in this vessel? That only God and you can identify …… how is your heart? What your lips are saying? Where your feet have you been? Have a particular God and discover why you are being broken, crushed and shaped again.
Now yes, the vessel modeled on the potter’s will, is ready for the 4th part, the phase of the furnace, the earthen vessel needs to pass through the fire to get resistance. If the vessel does not undergo this process, When It Receives water, for example, begins to leak the water beneath the vessel, and the vessel que drains water below is not meant to uso.Então the vessel goes to the furnace, and the potter keeps an eye, to see que the toilet is good to be tested, approved and used.
Now God Allows you to go through que fire proof, that most Difficult stage, perhaps When You ask yourself “But Lord why am I going through this” …. and God answers:
To perfect you.
At que stage you learn to use everything received from God while being modeled, but mostly you exercise your faith, it is the acid test, or have faith or have no faith, or vessel is, or is not, or obeys or perish .. and perish means to be broken again and return to the potter’s house, from step 2.
But Cam the furnace and you resisted, cam the test and you passed, so now the potter up and sees looks the vase exactly as he imagined, there at the beginning, when i was still looking for the clay, a clean vase, because separate fi by God, the clay pot because you learned to be humble and just Relying on God, a vase full of the Holy Spirit, because you opened your heart to receive all that God wanted to pour on you, the sturdy vessel que does not break , because He learned to use Their faith and believe que even in the toughest times, God is in control of everything.
Now the Lord for his infinite mercy, look at you and pours oil on you because you are ready to use, to be full of anointing oil, to overflowing because Honour Vase, overflows in the presence of God.
This my beloved brethren is the process vessel, and if you really want to be by used the Lord, if you want to be a vessel of honor and praise, so que God’s name be glorified, no other way, have to go through the process .
