Descrizione

The central thesis of this book is that the most urgent thing in our generation is the emergence, in the Church, of men and women who know God and serve Him from this knowledge.

The author, Z.T. Fomum, boldly argues that anything a man can do for God is of no consequence if it is not done as an overflow of his knowledge of God.

An initial encounter is important, but beyond that, it takes

spiritual knowledge,
a high frequency,
intensity, and
a long duration
of encounters between a man and his God.

This book is a pertinent plea that no one should serve God without knowing Him.

It's highly recommended.

Notes

PREFACE

These messages have been compiled from lessons taught to the Provincial leaders of our ministry in Cameroon. They were taught during a special retreat from the 7th to the 10th of January 2004.

We have reproduced them here as they were preached, with some editing. May God grant that you receive ministry and be transformed by what He taught during our gathering there.

God bless you abundantly.

INTRODUCTION

The future of the work belongs to those who know God. In this leadership course, we shall not be dealing with numbers and new areas to be conquered. To be candid, these are secondary issues. We shall not treat secondary issues. The central question is:

Is there a man in Yaounde who knows God?

Is there a man in Douala who knows God?

Is there a man in the Centre Province who knows God? I am not going to emphasise Prayer alone, Daily Dynamic Encounters with God, Bible reading, Reading of Christian literature, Giving and the like. In a sense, these issues are secondary. The greatest need in Christian Missionary Fellowship International is a people who know God. Until these arise, we are in trouble. After they arise, a new day will dawn.

Let me first of all express what I consider a great anomaly. None of our leaders has told me, I met God. This is a great anomaly for spiritual leadership. Spiritual leaders in the Bible met God. It was usually a revolutionary encounter. They encountered, they beheld God. They knew the one they had met, and they were changed by that encounter. They carried something of that encounter in their lives. For Isaac, it was one encounter; for Abraham and Jacob, there were many encounters. The people met God. They knew whom they had met. They walked with Him. They knew their lives were satisfied in Him. It was not some reasoning with the mind. They met God. The encounter(s) changed everything. They were arrested, gripped.

THE INDISPENSABLE ENCOUNTER - 1

Isaiah Met God

In Isaiah 6:1-3 we read:

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. ​And they were calling to one another:

Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.

He said, I saw the Lord. He was not lying. He was not imagining. He said, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted.

He did not only see the Lord. He heard the music of heaven. He heard the formula greeting of heaven: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory. ‘

It was first of all the stupendous glory of God, the Lord Almighty, on the throne, a high and exalted one that he saw. He saw the Lord, then he saw the seraphs. Then he heard the language of the seraphs. That was the beginning for Isaiah. Where did you miss out? This was not at the point of his maturity. It was at the beginning. He started with beholding the Lord. He saw very clearly, and he heard. Before, he could do anything by himself, a deep thing had happened, from which he could never be the same.

The men of old met God, beheld Him, gazed at Him. Something of the glory of heaven was shown to them. They started with a crisis of an encounter with God.

For Isaiah, there was a date, In the year that King Uzziah died. It was stamped in history. The Almighty tore open that which in heaven makes Him invisible, so that Isaiah might see. So Isaiah beheld God, the throne and the seraphs. This is what I was waiting for in 1971. When I was carried to heaven, I knew something of intercession. I learnt it there for six hours. We shall come back to this.

Isaiah saw the Lord and the seraphs. He saw where they were and he saw their wings. He saw that with two of their wings the seraphs covered their faces. Why did they have to cover their faces? The answer is, – Because of the stupendous glory of God.

When God came to meet me in Mont Febe Hotel, I ran and hid under the bed. The glory, the splendour, the light was too much. I hid my face. For the seraphs, with two wings they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.

The language of heaven, its glory and atmosphere, is Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty. The atmosphere of heaven is charged with the Lord, His throne, the seraphs and the holiness of the Almighty.

So we find that Isaiah started with a dramatic encounter with the living God. This encounter was stamped, not only on his mind, but on his whole being. It was not only on his forehead. God became written in his person. To some extent, the knowledge of God was stamped on his person. It was a knowing not dependent on logic. Knowledge of God, of heavenly things, was imparted to him. There is no way Isaiah could forget what he saw—the Lord, the exalted throne, the beings that surrounded the throne, and their attitude to God’s glory.

The Unintentional Sin And Knowing God

Do you know why the seraphs covered their feet? The feet can get dirty unconsciously. As you walk through the day, you can dirty the feet without intending it. This has to do with the theology of unintentional sin. We find this mentioned in the following passages:

Leviticus 4: 1-2:

The LORD said to Moses, Say to the Israelites: 'When anyone sins unintentionally and does what is forbidden in any of the LORD's commands--

Leviticus 4:13:

If the whole Israelite community sins unintentionally and does what is forbidden in any of the LORD's commands, even though the community is unaware of the matter, they are guilty.

Leviticus 4: 22:

When a leader sins unintentionally and does what is forbidden in any of the commands of the LORD his God, he is guilty.

Leviticus 4: 27:

If a member of the community sins unintentionally and does what is forbidden in any of the LORD's commands, he is guilty.

Leviticus 5: 14-15:

The LORD said to Moses: ​When a person commits a violation and sins unintentionally in regard to any of the LORD's holy things, he is to bring to the LORD as a penalty a ram from the flock, one without defect and of the proper value in silver, according to the sanctuary shekel. It is a guilt offering.

Leviticus 5: 17:

If a person sins and does what is forbidden in any of the LORD's commands, even
