Dynamite with a Wet Fuse

Dynamite with a Wet Fuse

Roy Blizzard III © 2013

Romans 1:16, For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

This text should be the motto for every believer, every person who considers themselves to be a “Christian”.

What does the text say in the original Hebrew and Greek. In the Hebrew the phrase is גבורת אלוהים . Geeburat Elohim and has the meaning of strength or power. In the Greek the phrase is “δύναμις γαρ θεου” This is a greater descriptive for us because Dunamis is the Greek word from which we get our word Dynamite. Let us consider, therefore, that we are the Dynamite of God.

Quite a few years ago, around 2,500 years to be exact, a Greek named Democritus first coined the term “Atom” as a small particle which cannot be further divided. Man however, in his search for power was able to manipulate the atom from which we ultimately saw its explosive power when split at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. This was power beyond man’s comprehension, the power to destroy a whole city, total annihilation. Thousands killed and thousands more made homeless while children became orphans and others were maimed for life. This was a terrible destructive power, the destructive power of man.

Then came 1954 and an ever greater destructive power came into being, the Hydrogen fusion Bomb. At the island test site, it destroyed the entire island and blew open a hole thousands of feet long and wide in the ocean floor. The effects were felt many miles away and many years later but scientists say that this explosive force was just a baby in comparison to what we have now. Some scientists even claim that they are now capable of setting off chain reactions that could destroy the entire world.

Time is short in our lives as Bible prophecy is being fulfilled every day. Jesus’ second coming draws closer every day and too many are lost and they reason like the rich fool in Luke 12:19, “And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.”

It is time for us as a Christian Nation to wake up, blow up, or blow away. I say we must wake up. Look at Romans again, “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for it is the Power of God unto Salvation to everyone that believeth...” Yes the Gospel of God is the Dynamite of God, but like all dynamite it has to have a fuse to set it off; something that has some fire to touch it off and make it do its job. What it was created to do! That’s where your life comes in believer; your life is the fuse. Your existence must be joined to God’s existence so that the creative spark of God is able to explode into creative life through you.

But why is it that the world is in the condition it is in today? Man, created in God’s image and likeness is set against man the world over, even filtering down to our own political arenas! War, strife, unrest, apathy, ignorance. Why is the church in this same condition today? Churches battling other churches, unrest in the congregations, apathy towards God, falling attendance, and even universal salvation, feel good messages being promulgated as truth.

To tell you the truth, most people who call themselves “Christians”, people who have the dynamite of God within them, have wet fuses. They just won’t explode into anything creative for God or even their own lives. They are scared and in a state of ignorance. A wet fuse coupled with God’s dynamite is as much good as a damp fuse for man’s dynamite. Things won’t work as planned.

We must realize what a power we have within the existence of God. We must realize that He is the same yesterday, today and forever. We must realize that Jesus is still on His throne at the right hand of God. Most of all we must realize we have to find a way to dry out our wet fuse and catch on fire for God in order to be the creative force that God has created us to be in this world that He gave us dominion over. There should be no abrogation to some third, forth or fifth party because we are all created to do a job, a creative job that takes the creative power of God in our lives to accomplish. We must accomplish it, not someone else. We must stop being afraid like the children of Israel at Mt. Sinai and draw near to God and His power.

Do you have a husband, wife, son or daughter that is outside of a relationship with Jesus? Do you love them? Do you want to spend eternity with them? Then you must win them to Jesus. How? By incorporating Him into your life and existence in such a manner that you become on fire for God. By getting on fire for God you can light the fuse to the dynamite that will explode with such a creative force that it will present to others a Jesus that fulfills all needs and wants and who can give them eternal life in the hereafter and joy unspeakable in the now.

Christians, your fuses have been wet for too long now. Only until we get on fire for God can we ever hope to grow or ever hope to win our relatives, friends, and communities and finally the world to Jesus. It has to start with you.

You say, “But what can I do? I’m just one person.” Well, what did Paul do? He went to where God called him to go and did what God called him to do. And no matter what you’d like to believe, you’re no different than him. He carried the dynamite of God to the known world of his day. We can all do the same today.

Time is growing short for man’s stay on the earth and more people may depend on what we decide to do with Jesus than you think.

We have a potential force within our grasp and our being such as never has been known before. We have a force so great that if we would ever dry our fuses and light them with God we would set off a force so powerful that instead of setting off a chain reaction that would destroy the world it would set off a chain reaction and save it. Today, we can have a second Pentecost or a second Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It just depends upon you.

You may say you love Christ. You may say you do believe His Gospel is the power or dynamite of God unto salvation. You may say you do want Him as your savior. You may say you do want to confess Him before man. You may say you do want to be a part of His second Pentecost. You may say you want to give your life to Him. You may say you want to become a member of Jesus’ Kingdom. Then get down on your knees and begin to pray, pray for God to light your fuse by helping you exist within God’s own existence and unify your will within His will. Accept Jesus’ reign in your life and through His Blood Covenant and His Baptism experience His forgiveness for your sins and explode in power in your own life as you go forth in His Kingdom here on the earth today.

      It all makes good sense to me. I have often said, "Let the spark of dissatifaction within light the fire inside you." I must vote this UP and beautiful.
