The Circus

When I was younger I loved going to the circus. I loved the smell of the popcorn, the tricks of the acrobats and the animals, especially the tigers, they were great.

When I heard the radio broadcasts or saw the fliers on the poles of my neighborhood grocery stores that the circus was in town I would smile from ear to ear. I remember my first time going to Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus I was so excited.

God’s Three Eternal Purposes of the Pit By Ricardo Butler

God’s Three Eternal Purposes of the Pit By Ricardo Butler

The Purpose of the Pit

 

Now I want to cover three of the main purposes of the Pit. There is always a benefit of something that God uses to change us. Remember He does all things (good or evil) still for you good and for your advantage and profit according to Romans 8:28 and Hebrews 12:10.

 

The first purpose for the Pit is …

[1] To Draw Us Closer to the Father:

 

“Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause. They have cut off my life in the dungeon [or pit], and cast a stone upon me. Waters flowed over mine head; then I said, I am cut off [a LIE of the Pit]. I called upon Thy name, O LORD, out of the low dungeon [Pit]. Thou [God] hast heard my voice: hide not Thine ear at my breathing, at my cry. Thou [God] drewest near in the day that I called upon Thee: Thou saidst, Fear not.” (Lamentations 3:52-57).

The Lies of the Pit

 

Satan is going to lie to you, on you, and about you to others in the pit.

 

“And they took Joseph’s coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood; And they sent the coat of many colors, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy son’s coat or no. And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.” (Genesis 37:31-33).

 

Joseph’s brothers didn’t actually tell a lie by mouth to their father. But they presented enough evidence to make is seem as Joseph did die by an evil beast. So the father came to the conclusion by the evident presented to make his declarations.

 

Maybe you’ve heard some of these lies in the pit or wilderness. Lies like, “I’ll never be somebody!” or “God doesn’t love me!” John the Baptist fell into the lies of the pit.

Reason for the Pit

The book of Job says,

 “He [God] will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light [Heb: ‘illumination or (concrete) luminary (in every sense, including lightning, happiness, etc.):--bright, clear, + day, light, morning, sun’]. Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man, to bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened [Heb: ‘to be (causative, make) luminous (literally and metaphorically):--X break of day, glorious, kindle, be enlightened, set on fire, shine’] with the light of the living.” (Job 33:28-30).

The words “light” and “enlightened” come from the same Hebrew root word that means, “illumination, luminary, and luminous.” Another word in our English means, “clarification, reflection.”

 

The pit or wilderness is a time for clarification of motives and clarification of your life and everything that has led you up to this point.

Pit Test

 

Now we come to the Pit Test. Everyone fails the pride test and will always fall into the Pit. Now there are a new set of tests the Lord want us to pass long before we consider or think of going into the Hip-Hop Ministry, Industry, and Culture. I will say this one thing before I give our Scripture for this lesson is this: If you cannot identify your Pit experience I doubt you are a true member of the Body of Christ. Even Jesus had a pit experience for 40 days and 40 nights. We all must follow Christ where He goes and into the same preparation experiences to enter into what the Father will have us doing.

 

Here’s our lead Scripture for this post.

 

Behold, this dreamer cometh. Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some PIT, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams. And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and said, Let us not kill him. And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this PIT THAT IS IN THE WILDERNESS, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.” (Genesis 37:12-22).

 

I want to share with you a bit my Pit/Wilderness experience. Some of you might have already heard this or maybe even read it on my website. It doesn’t hurt to hear it again since it’s relevant to the topic at hand.

By Ricardo ‘ReAsOn’ Butler

There comes a point in a music minister’s life when you can no longer do small things. You can no longer book locally, record in your closet, or go to Kinkos and print up CD’s while burning one disk a minute in your personal PC. That might have worked when you were going up against the Goliath size music industry and secular record labels but now you have to defend yourself against the church popular Saul type artists in the Holy Hip-Hop Ministry.
