WOLOgoHO?   WHY THE STRANGE NAME?

Isaiah 6:8-9  (KJV)                                   WOLO go HO,  inc.

______________________________________________________________________________

Why such a strange name for an organization?   So glad you asked.     What is in a name is very important because it says a lot about the purposes of that organization.  WOLOGOHO exists in order to mobilize Christians to go into the “uttermost parts of the earth”.    Hence the emphasis on the word go.    However, the rest of the story is just as important, if not more so.

The name comes from key words in Isaiah.   We will take one segment of the word at a time.  We would like to do a complete expository sermon on Isaiah but this will have to suffice for the moment.

After Isaiah  had spent some time in the ministry as a prophet and  had just finished with all of the “woe’s” upon the people of Israel in chapters 3-5, he had a new encounter with the “Lord of Hosts”.  He saw the Lord, high and lifted up.   It is as this point that he recognized in a renewed way who he himself was and who God is.   Here then is the sequence of events that transpired.   The same should occur in our lives.

WO -  We must take an INWARD look and  EXAMINE OURSELVES.  As Isaiah we must recognize that we are lost, that we are men and women of unclean lips and that we dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips.  We need renewal and revival.  It is only as we begin to realize our unworthiness that God can be begin to use us.  Isaiah 66:2 says, “This is the man to whom I will look, he that is humble, contrite in spirit and trembles at my word”.

LO -  We must take an UPWARD look and EXAMINE GOD.  As Isaiah, we must recognize that it is God Himself that forgives us and  makes us worthy, not ourselves.  It is God who makes things happen.  Numbers 23:19 says, “God is not man that He should repent.  Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfil it?  

GO -  We must take an OUTWARD look and EXAMINE THE WORLD.  As Isaiah, we must make ourselves available to go to wherever God wants to send us.   The question was, “Who shall I send, and who will go for us?”   Then Isaiah says,  “Here am I! Send me.”  And God says, “GO..” Matthew 28:9-10 says, “Go therefore and make disciples of “all” nations”, not just here in the United States.

HO -  We must take an ONWARD look and  EXAMINE OUR LORD.   This word is not in Isaiah 6 but rather in chapter 55.   The word “Ho” is a constant call from the Lord to continually come to Him for daily sustenance.  Mathew 11:28 says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”.

Now is not the time to retreat or slow down.  Now is the time to attack and go forward!

Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He may drive laborers into His harvest!  Matthew 9:38.
