Is there not a cause ?

Is there not a cause?

By Abraham Israel





Cause => The reason or motive for an action.

For those who do not have a cause in this life will not be effective or be successful in reaching their destiny.

1) Our greatest example of a man who lived with the cause produced the greatest effect of all time [i.e. our salvation]. This is none other than our Lord Jesus Christ. The law of science says, ‘Every effect has a cause behind it.’

2) No one can be effective with out a cause. So only Jesus said, “…for this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come in to the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one who is of the truth hears My voice.” (John 18:37).

From the above verse we need to understand Jesus emphasized two causes, and every one of us also need to ask ourselves this question and find out from God,

(i) For what cause I am born?

(ii) For what cause I have come?

In the kingdom of God those who know the cause can only be effective in reaching their destiny.

3) The other great example of a man who shouted in faith even as a young man, “…Is there not a cause?” (1 Samuel 17:29) is none other than the beloved of God David. What made David the most effective king of all time in Israel was that, he knew in himself that he was born with a cause and have come with a cause.

What made David as a young man to go and kill the giant Goliath and make history?

(i) David heard about the giant and he did not fear when others allowed fear to intimidate themselves (1 Sam 17:23-25). David did not flee and was not afraid of Goliath, so only the people who saw him like that asked him, “Have you not seen this man who has come up?...”(v25).

(ii) David was excited about the reward and he knew that God is a rewarder of those who seek Him diligently. He was a God seeker (1 Sam 17:26; Heb 11:6).

(iii) David knew that the battle they were into had a cause of God in it and that the result will have the effect of God in it. So only he asked the question to other men, “…For who is this uncircumcised philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” (1 Sam 17:26). This made him rise up in faith in that dangerous situation.

(iv) When David was falsely accused by his oldest brother of being prideful and arrogant, David said to him, “Is there not a cause?” (1 Sam 17:29, 30). This was the statement that won the battle for David because people were challenged by his words of faith.

(v) When people heard and saw this man with a cause, they reported it to Saul and Saul called David to meet him (1 Sam 17:31).

(vi) Because David knew that this is a cause in which God is involved and His Name is at stake, he was able to answer the king Saul, “Let no man’s heart [including the king] fail because of him; Your servant will go and fight with this philistine” (1 Sam 17:32).

We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
