The Legacy of George Muller-The guardian of Bristol's Orphan

Recently finished one of those "bio-graphic novels" on George Muller by Janet and Geoff Benge....wow!!!

Since returning from India a few weeks ago I have been on a journey of discovery that is revitalizing my faith and restoring my perspective on so many things. It even has me working on that book I've had on my computer since 2005.

But sometimes books, like fine wine, need time to age, mature and get to the place where uncorking it is worth the wait. I think that is true will lives too.

Take this book on Mr. Muller...years ago I would have discounted it. Years ago I was not a place where I could receive its teachings. Years ago it would angered me, really. But in the last 14 years I have learned so much about this Way. I have come to some radical conclusions about the dominant heresies plaguing the Way. I have cast off much of the terminology of the heresy, preferring language of the Way to the language of the imposter. (by imposter I mean the heresy that calls itself "the" body of, or the people, or the "church")

so here is the exciting part from Mr. Muller. God did the impossible with this guy. In Chapter 14, "God will Supply" I am astounded by how God supplies. I have seen this a few times in my life, but the imposter has taken those seeds and replaced them with a safe, non-radical dependance on logic, arm twisting, rationally understood theories about "god" rather than what Jim Elliot said: "Rest in this: it is His business to lead, command, impel, send, call or whatever you want to call it. It is your business to obey, follow, move, respond, or what have you."

So Mr. Muller sees a lonely orphan in Bristol England. He cancels his life plan right there and does what God is commanding him to do. He gives up everything for this following. And God Supplies everything he needs. How exciting is that! How challenging for us with our 401k's, our pensions, or fears about government, our concerns with the status quo, our greed.

I offer the book to you as a challenge. If you are currently following the imposter please stay away from this book--it will hurt you to see the emperor has "no" clothes. They aren't new. They are naked. But if you are eager to "obey, follow, move, respond, or what have you" it might be the best read (next to New Testament) you will ever read.
