B Python is often a voice of the past. 1 The word for this word in the Old Testament is “ ‘owb”, which also means “familiar spirits.” a The slave girl consulted people who were dead to guide her present. aa People from the past controlling her today! bb Is. 29.4 b The is spirit of python/divination speaks from the dust of the ground, tries to wrap itself around you and squeeze the life from you. 2 Often times this spirit uses our past history (family, personal, professional) to bring us despair, death & destruction. a Sometimes it can be just elevating the “good ol’days” to sacred status. aa Often the case in churches! (Nothing wrong with the good ol’days, but when they strangle the new thing God wants to do at the alter of religion, something is wrong.) bb Tradition is the living faith the dead; religion is the dead faith of the living. b There is a way to build from our past to gain a perspective of our present circumstances in order to build our future. C Moses & God have a conversation that helps us identify what a healthy view of past, present, & future looks like. (Exodus 33.20-23) 1 If anybody knew about the past, it was Moses. a He chronicled creation, fall, lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob. Past? He got it! b Moses also knew that the only way he could lead Israel into the Promised Land was see God’s face fresh, anew. 2 Moses learned that our God is always on the move. a God could have drawn a picture of Himself, given a written description of His glory, said “no” to Moses’ request. b God gave Moses a certain place, certain time to catch a glimpse of where He (God) had just come from. 3 There is no future in your past. a God is always moving forward! b We can linger in the halls of yesterdays achievements, triumphs only long enough to learn from our mistakes. c We linger too long we will miss what God is doing right now and His promise for our future. D Python- The Piling up of Bad Circumstances 1 Job 27.20 a When you’re winning nothing hurts. When you’re losing everything hurts. b In football a team can be penalized for “piling on” after the tackle. (Worst is usually after a fumble.)
