How do you interpret the following
three passages as they relate to the role of the Body of Christ in “governing” God’s will?1
Isaiah 45:11 (NASB) 11 Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: “Ask Me about the things to come concerning My sons, And you shall commit to Me the work of My hands.
Ezekiel 36:37-38 (NASB) 37 ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “This also I will let the house of Israel ask Me to do for them: I will increase their men like a flock. 38 “Like the flock for sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem during her appointed feasts, so will the waste cities be filled with flocks of men. Then they will know that I am the LORD.””‘
Exodus 17:11-13 (NASB) 11 So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands were heavy. Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. Thus his hands were steady until the sun set. 13 So Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
I hope to hear from several of you. I hope to post an article on this topic in a few weeks and if I had your comments prior to doing so, that would be very helpful.
