The Heartbeat
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him. - 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NIV)

A couple weeks ago I was at the church building while a workman, hired by the owner, was on the grounds. I had seen this man before and as he did his work I talked to him. I found out that he was a Christian, attended a church in Ephrata, and was soon expecting to move to another state. As he finished his work and began to pack up his tools he said, “God has given me the gift of prophecy. I function in the prophetic. And if you are willing to accept it I have a word for you.” I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but I nodded my head and said, “Sure, what word do you have for me.” He then said, “It is a word for your church: THRESHOLD. I believe you have been faithful and that you are on the threshold of seeing some great things.” I thanked him for that word and as might be expected I have been thinking on that word ever since.

  • What might God have in store for us?
  • What good blessings?
  • Is someone ready to give us a building?
  • Will we see some of these that we have been praying for (now for years) come to Christ?
  • Will Burning Hearts be at the center of a great revival that will sweep our area?
  • Will some tragedy come that will result in God’s kingdom making a major advance?
  • What DOES God have in store for us?

The above noted verse (1 Corinthians 2:9) is the verse that I have asked to have put on my gravestone. Regardless of Paul’s intent in stating it, I have always thought of it as a great verse regarding my (and others) eternal future for certainly death brings us into the great unknown. But this verse could also be used to speak of the things of this life, which is actually more in keeping with how Paul was speaking when he wrote the verse. What great things might God have for us here and a church?

Life is an adventure, full of opportunities all the time. There are opportunities to learn, to advance, to grow, both individually and corporately. I pray that this “prophet” was right and that Burning Hearts is truly just on the threshold of some very great things. What they might be none of us know. But here is the big question: Are you ready?
