Names of God



s you walk out of here today, hearing again for the 21st time a message that I preach every year, I hope that it will not just be hung up on the corner of your brain-wall somewhere, but it will flow into the bone marrow of your life and relationship to God and carry you through some of the struggles in 1996. 

And with that I take you to Isaiah 50, Old Testament: “Who is among you”—and immediately the target of the message is focused in—“Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant?”  Right off we know we’re not dealing with some spiritual criminal, some reprobate.  We’re dealing with someone who fears the Lord in the old-fashioned meaning of that word: respect, awe, recognition of His greatness and His ultimate rights over all of us.  We’re not dealing with a nonbeliever.  We’re dealing with that special group of people that hopefully is represented here today. 

“Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant?”  Again I use the word, not a ‘reprobate.’  Somebody’s really trying—you fear the Lord, you obey the voice of His servant.  As you hear the truth proclaimed, if it registers and sight sees light, you seek to align with it—pretty good people like you.  Now surely there’s no one in here today that doesn’t fear the Lord that isn’t at least trying to obey the voice of His servant because it’s presupposed that whatever you define as the voice of His servant you’re trying.  So this message fits you, “that walketh in darkness, and hath no light?” 


Now you’ve been here before with me 20 times.  Boy, I knew the truth of this last year.  You’re going along and all of a sudden the light goes out and you can’t see your way in any direction.  Now I don’t know to whom this message will most apply today, but wherever you are, sitting here, listening on television, listening on radio around the world, I’m sure there are those at this moment, hiding—it may be in the expressions on their face not letting it leak out as an act of courage—but you know as you listen you’re walking in darkness and you can’t see any light.  Whatever the pressure—pressure of circumstance, finance, health, loved ones, break-up of relationships, any number of envelopes of darkness that crowd in—and you can’t find any reason in anything you’ve done to explain the darkness.   You’re just in it; it’s swallowing you up.  And if you’re not sitting there today I want to tell you something—it’ll hit you probably before the year’s up—my famous saying, “Cheer up saints, it’s gonna get worse.”

Now I don’t wanna go on with the rest of the message unless I know we’re on the same wavelength.  You know what I’m talking about?  Oh I know, a lot of Christian preachers tell you if you’re serving God right this’ll never happen to you.  The Sister Sals and the Brother Jimmys point the finger and say—when you even hint to someone that you’re in darkness they’ll pull their righteous robes, self-righteous robes, back from you and you’ll see the question in their eye—“Well, what have you done wrong that this is happening to you?”  This darkness envelops one “that feareth the Lord and obeyeth the voice of his servant, yet walks in darkness and hath no light.”  “Well, what’re we supposed to do about it?”  How many wanna leave because this message hasn’t got anything to say to you?  Hold your hand up because I wanna escort you out.  How many—I’m going to
