FIRST THOUGHT!


faith-first

YOUR FIRST THOUGHT WHEN TROUBLE COMES REVEALS THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR FAITH.

When trouble comes into your life, what is the first thought that comes to your mind?

When you are sick, is the first thought the doctor?

When you are having money issues, is your first thought the bank?

MANY TIMES GOD CANNOT HELP US BECAUSE HE IS THE LAST ONE WE GO TO WHEN WE NEED HELP!!

Matt. 6:33 – SEEK YE FIRST…..

Col. 3:1-2,  If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 

Heb. 12:2, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

WHO IS THE FIRST PERSON YOU CALL WHEN TROUBLE COMES KNOCKING AT YOUR DOOR?

Know this…..

THAT IS THE ONE YOU HAVE FIRST FAITH IN.

MAKE IT JESUS, YOU WILL NOT REGRET ONE SECOND OF TRUSTING HIM.

Don’t Kick People To The SIDE!



We HATE sin, but love the SINNER………really?

I have seen it many times when a brother or sister in Christ will do foolish things and sin (hmmmmm….he who is without sin let him cast the first stone).  The reaction of the family of God has a powerful impact of restoration or damnation and the casting away of people who simply need to be loved back into the Kingdom.

I cannot tell you the amount of times I have heard, “thank you Pastor for never giving up on me.”

Gal 6:1, Brothers, if anyone is caught in any sin, you who are spiritual [that is, you who are responsive to the guidance of the Spirit] are to restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness [not with a sense of superiority or self-righteousness], keeping a watchful eye on yourself, so that you are not tempted as well. AMP

WE ARE ALL PEOPLE WHO DO STUPID THINGS AND WE SIMPLY NEED SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN US TO HELP US COME HOME.

The Word here is so simple.

IF YOU ARE SPIRITUAL……. This is a test, this is only a test!

If you are spiritual you will not kick people to the side who have fallen into sin, but you will RESTORE THEM!

There are some that need a strong rebuke and a whooping, BUT the majority are embarrassed and ashamed and simply want to know they can come home and not be looked down upon or become a second-class citizens.

TODAY…..

WHO IS IT  THAT YOU KNOW THAT HAS SIMPLY BEEN SUCKED BACK INTO SIN?

BE MATURE TODAY AND REACH OUT TO THEM AND LET THEM KNOW THAT JESUS AND YOU HAVE NEVER GIVEN UP ON THEM.

To those super-spiritual…..BE CAREFUL LEST YOU FALL!

JAMES 5:19-20. Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.

Sometimes We FORGET!


“Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other.

he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. Because of his grace he declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.”
‭‭Titus‬ ‭3:3, 5-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

 

SOMETIMES WE FORGET THAT WE TOO WERE LOST AND NEEDED SOMEONE TO POINT US TO JESUS!

GOOD Doesn’t Always Mean GOD!


Good and Bad - Business Concept

MANY TIMES WE LOOK AT THE GOOD THINGS AND THINK BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD THAT IT MUST BE A GOD THING…….

NOPE!!!!

Good does not always mean God.

The enemy and even our flesh can be tempted to do things that are not EVIL yet, ARE NOT GOD.

THE WORD IS OUR GUIDE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR DIRECTOR.

Sports are not bad…….BUT PEOPLE CHOOSE SPORTS OVER OBEYING GOD IN GOING TO CHURCH.

Money isn’t evil……..BUT PEOPLE WILL TRADE CHRIST FOR $1 MORE PER HOUR AND SURRENDER MINISTRY AND BIBLE STUDY.

Sunshine isn’t bad…….BUT PEOPLE DISOBEY GOD FOR THE SUN ALL THE TIME.

Relationships are not bad……BUT PEOPLE TRADE JESUS FOR FAMILY AND LOVE ALL THE TIME.

Business is not bad……BUT WHEN IT TAKES CHRIST FROM THE #1 POSITION IN YOUR LIFE IT BECOMES EVIL.

The list is never ending…..BUT THE TRUTH STANDS FIRM!

Ps. 119:11, I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

Ps. 119:160, The very essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever.

John 17:17, Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.

WE MUST TAKE EVERYTHING WE DO AND MEASURE IT FROM THE WORD OF GOD.  GOOD THINGS THAT DRAW AWAY FROM THE PRINCIPLES OF THE WORD ARE QUIETLY EVIL.

What if it is not drawing me away from obedience?

THEN ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR HIS DIRECTION CONCERNING THE GOOD THING.

Rom. 8:14, For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED THINKING THAT GOOD IS ALWAYS GOD!

THE GOD THING WILL ALWAYS BE GOOD, BUT IT WILL ALWAYS BE ESTABLISHED ON THE WORD OF TRUTH.

YOU’RE NOT POPULAR ANYMORE!


tolerance

PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU WHEN YOU ARE LIKE THEM AND STAND FOR NOTHING!

We all want to be popular and accepted by the people around us, but that ends quickly for most when they take a different stand than what is popular.  

This is a new experience for most Christians in America and the simple fact is….it will be escalating.

Most American Christians live the same type of lifestyle the world does, so the world accepts and embraces them, but there is a great divide when you give your life to Christ.  As Princes & Princesses we are no longer of this world, we are not the same, we do not live like the world.

THIS GENERATION WILL REJECT AND HAVE HATRED TOWARD YOU!

THIS IS NORMAL not ABNORMAL!

John 15:20a, Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.

2 Tim. 3:12, Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

WHEN YOU FINALLY TAKE A STAND FOR THE WORD AND YOUR SAVIOR, YOU WILL BE PERSECUTED!

The world declares TOLERANCE, but they are only TOLERANT with the Christian as long as they do what they want and agree with.

A BELIEVER WILL NOT AGREE ON MORAL ISSUES THE SAME AS AN UNBELIEVER.  THEY HAVE DIFFERENT MASTERS.  

The unsaved obey their king and live his moral values – Eph. 2:2-3.

The SAVED now obey their King, and His name is Jesus!  

JESUS SAID IT BEST!

Matt. 10:34, Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

THIS IS A RARE OCCASION IN AMERICA THAT CHRISTIANS HAVE TO TAKE A STAND WITH THE WORD AGAINST THE WORLD’S SYSTEM.  THIS CAUSES ANGER, HATRED, PERSECUTION SIMPLY IN THE NAME OF TOLERANCE.

STAND SAINT, STAND!

WATCH OUT FOR THESE 4!


mistakes

GOD GAVE US SOME INSIGHT ON WHAT TO STAY AWAY FROM TO PLEASE HIM.

1 Cor. 10:6, Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted.

The children of Israel displeased the Father and through this portion of Scripture addressed 3 areas that made Him unhappy with His family.

1)  Verse 7 –  And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.”

IDOLATRY – placing anything before Jesus.  He is to be #1 in our lives.  Exodus 20:3, You shall have no other gods before Me.  God is not a good sharer!!

2) Verse 8a – Nor let us commit sexual immorality….23,000 died in one day.

SEXUAL IMMORALITY – this has become commonplace in today’s Christian world but God has not changed His stance.  Sex before marriage is still a sin, and sex with someone who is not your spouse is still a sin in the sight of Christ.  God does not take sin lightly even though the American church does.

3)  Verse 9 – nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents.

TEMPTING CHRIST – He is a God of His Word!  Tempting Him will only produce a negative experience on our behalf.  Gal. 6:7, Don’t be misled–you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.

4)  Verse 10 – nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.

COMPLAINING – this is ranked right up there with sexual sins and idolatry.  Who would have thought!  STOP COMPLAINING!!!  Rejoice in the Lord!  Praise the Lord!  Shout unto the Lord!  The joy of the Lord is your strength!

VERSE 11 – Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

RID YOURSELF OF THESE SINS AND PLEASE YOUR KING!

HOW DO I GET MY MIRACLE?


Many people say they want a MIRACLE, but few obtain them……WHY?

JESUS WAS OUR GREAT EXAMPLE SO LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENED IN HIS MINISTRY.

One of the first principles is that THE PEOPLE WHO CAME EXPECTING A MIRACLE, WALKED AWAY WITH ONE!

All the other cases, THE PEOPLE CAME EXPECTING, SEEKING JESUS TO HEAL THEM!

The first miracle was changing the water into wine – John 2:5, But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”  Mary drew the miracle out of Jesus.  She expected the miracle and put her faith into action to obtain what her faith declaration believed.

Jairus’ daughter was raised to life – Mark 5:22-23, Then a leader of the local synagogue, whose name was Jairus, arrived. When he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet, 23 pleading fervently with him. “My little daughter is dying,” he said. “Please come and lay your hands on her; heal her so she can live.”  His baby girl rose from the dead!

Woman with the issue of blood – Mark 5:27-28, She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe. 28 For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.”   What the doctors could not accomplish, Jesus could! He healed her!

The leper who came seeking Jesus – Matt. 8:1-3, Large crowds followed Jesus as he came down the mountainside. Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.” Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” He was healed and free from that evil disease.

HOW DO I GET MY MIRACLE?

COME EXPECTING JESUS TO TOUCH YOUR SITUATION!

FAITH COUPLED WITH EXPECTANCY IS THE BREEDING GROUND FOR MIRACLES!

This Sunday at 9am, 11am and 4pm, Monday – Wednesday at 6:30pm we will be hosting Apostle Charles Ndifon at His Tabernacle Family Church.  MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS WILL CONFIRM THE WORD!

COME RECEIVE YOUR MIRACLE FROM JESUS THIS WEEK!
