WHY SO MUCH DISHONOR?


no-respect-for-disrespect

HONOR IS THE KEY TO ACCESS!

DISHONOR PRODUCES DISCONNECTION!

Ex. 201:12, Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

Regard (treat with honor, due obedience, and courtesy) your father and mother, that your days may be long in the land the Lord your God gives you. AMP

WHEN WE HONOR OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, WHEN WE HONOR OUR PARENTS, WHEN WE HONOR EACH OTHER THE DOOR OF ACCESS OPENS IN OUR LIVES.

This has always been one of my major drives in life and ministry.  I have found when you genuinely love and honor people that they open their hearts to you and you have access.  You do not just have access to their ears, but people are willing to open their hearts and lives.

Do you want a greater relationship with Jesus?  HONOR HIM

Do you want your spouse to be better?  HONOR THEM

Do you want to live a long life?  HONOR YOUR PARENTS

Do you want a promotion or raise at work?  HONOR YOUR BOSS

Do you want to learn something from an individual that possesses the skills you enjoy?  HONOR THEM

HONOR IS THE KEY TO ACCESS FROM EVERY DIRECTION IN OUR LIVES!

Dishonor flips a switch that disconnects you from your destiny.  Learn to honor and you will step into greatness.  Live in dishonor and you will be surrounded by failure and failures.

FINANCIAL TROUBLE….Pt. 2


financial-problems

TITHING?

The only thing the church wants is your money!

The truth is that only about 9% of all Christians in America tithe.

God is the one who designed the giving process all the way back to Abraham.

Abraham gave for honor and obedience declaring that God is His source.

TITHING IS ALL ABOUT HONOR, OBEDIENCE, AND RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

When we start talking about tithing most preachers use Mal. 3:8 as a scare tactic to get people to give.

I want to show you today that TITHING is about RELATIONSHIP & HONOR and not fear.

Mal. 3:7-8, Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances And have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” Says the Lord of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?’

8 Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.

WHAT IS GOD’S HEART?

DOES HE NEED YOUR MONEY?

HE SAYS IT VERY CLEAR IN VERSE 7 – THIS IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP AND OBEDIENCE!

“Return to me and I will return to you”

What do you mean Jesus?

WHEN WE DO NOT TITHE WE ARE NOT OBEYING GOD AND HAVE CREATED A BREACH IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

Everything about God and man is about relationship not fear.  God does not NEED your money!

Tithing is about you and I declaring out of obedience that Jesus is our source, not a man, no a job, not a company.

TODAY IF YOU DO NOT TITHE THEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS IS SUFFERING.

1 Sam 15:22, But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.

IF YOU DO NOT TITHE, THEN REPENT BEFORE THE LORD FOR YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AND BEGIN THIS SUNDAY TO TITHE TO THE STOREHOUSE YOU ARE FED AT SPIRITUALLY.

The way to BREAK financial SUFFERING is to OBEY God and watch HIM BLESS YOU!

HONOR IS DUE…


657

GIVING HONOR WHERE HONOR IS DUE SHOWS GREAT RESPECT.

Today, I want to honor Pastor Rhonda Spencer on her BIRTHDAY!

I personally want to honor my wife for all the SACRIFICE she has given to propel the Kingdom of God.  There is always personal sacrifice if you are going to see a vision come to fruition.  IT IS NEVER FREE.

I remember taking our first pastorate back in 1990 with 7 people and each of the 7 could have been her grandparent.  She took on the responsibility of being a pastor’s wife with great dignity.  At that time I was making $10.00 a week full time and she was newly pregnant.  She took on this challenge for Jesus as a young lady and shined!!!

The next stage of her life in ministry was when I went on the road full-time as an Evangelist.  She was home for 3 years, 3 weeks a month, while I was preaching the Word.  She had 3 babies under the age of 5 and was somewhat a single mom, even though married.  What a MOM!!!  Honestly, I could never have asked for a better mother for my children.

When we progressed into the next stage of life in ministry when we were launching His Tabernacle Family Church, she willingly went to work and gave up her life’s dream to see God’s Kingdom flourish.  She worked 7 years full time sacrificing raising her babies every day.  She was selfless!  She allowed her dreams to be placed down to propel God’s passion for people.  His Tabernacle would not be where it is today without Rhonda’s sacrifice and love for people.

She is the BEST MOM, and now is a WOW grandmother (all at 29).  Rhonda is a tremendous teacher and preacher of the Word of God.  She is a dynamic writer (just completed her 3rd book).  She builds and strengthens pastor’s wives with http://www.empoweringpastorswives.com every Thursday and throughout the week.

She is my HELPMATE and my LOVER.  There are just way too many things she is to so many diverse people all over the planet.

WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE HER IN OUR LIVES AND TODAY WE HONOR YOU RHONDA AND SAY…….WE ALL LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH!!

1 Tim. 5:17, The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.

DOUBLE ASSIGNMENT!


Assignment

TODAY IS A DAY YOU HAVE NEVER HAD BEFORE!

These next 16.5 hours have already been planned by Jesus for your life.  He already has people placed for your life to touch and influence for Himself.

YOU ARE SO IMPORTANT TODAY – DO NOT BE DISTRACTED FROM TODAY’S DESTINY!

The first assignment that is on the docket is called FIRST MINISTRY.

What is first ministry?

That is honoring God and your relationship with Him.  First ministry is placing Him first and then spending time worshipping and listening to Him for His direction for the day.

Prov. 3:5-6, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

MINISTER TO JESUS BY GIVING HIM ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND HONOR!

Ps. 150:6, Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!

SPEND TIME WITH JESUS PRAISING HIM AND HONORING HIM WITH YOUR HEART AND LIPS = 1st ministry

The second assignment that is on the docket for your life today is SHARING THE GOSPEL.

“Pastor, my gift is singing, praying, children, preaching…….”

YES, THEY MIGHT BE YOUR GIFTS THAT ADD TO THE KINGDOM WORK, BUT EVERY SINGLE BELIEVER HAS BEEN COMMISSIONED (even preachers) WITH THE SAME CALL!

Mark 16:15, And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.

WE ARE CALLED TO PLANT, WATER, AND BRING IN THE HARVEST FOR THE KINGDOM.

I will say this and simply get people mad……..IF YOU ARE NOT LEADING AT LEAST 1 SOUL TO JESUS A YEAR….THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE THE HEART OF GOD!

That is a bold statement.  How can I be that bold?

IF YOU ARE SPENDING TIME IN 1ST MINISTRY, THEN YOU WILL GET THE HEART OF THE FATHER WHICH IS SOULS!

If you are not soul driven…..then what are you?

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU LED TO JESUS SO FAR PERSONALLY IN 2016?  HOW MANY OF THEM ARE YOU DISCIPLING?

ALWAYS ASKING FOR SOMETHING!


use

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN AROUND THOSE PEOPLE WHO ONLY TALK TO YOU WHEN THEY WANT SOMETHING?

You know when that phone rings and their number comes up that they are going to ask for a “FAVOR.”

How many times have you ignored those calls…..lol!

HOW MANY BELIEVERS ONLY PRAY WHEN THEY NEED SOMETHING FROM JESUS?

Dear Lord, I am in big trouble…

Dear Lord, help me…

Dear Lord, I want this…..

Dear Lord, do this for me….

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ASKING, BUT IF THAT IS ALL YOU DO WHEN YOU PRAY THEN YOU ARE MISSING THE BEST PART!

What is the best part?

BLESSING HIM!

How do I do that?

Praise and Worship during your prayer time is a key to blessing Him.

Matt. 6:9, In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

Jesus taught the Disciples to pray like this.  To address the Father and to honor, worship, declare His holiness.  When we start praising Him in our prayer time we are asking Him to come and fill our atmosphere!

Ps. 100:4, Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.

WHEN WE START TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP HIM HIS PRESENCE COMES AND FILLS US UP WITH A FRESH ANOINTING.

Do not always be an asker, BE A PERSON OF GRATITUDE WITH A THANKFUL HEART!

Jesus wants to bless and give you the desires of your heart, but don’t only be a taker, be a GIVER of THANKSGIVING!

TAKE THE WHOLE DAY AND JUST TELL JESUS HOW BLESSED AND THANKFUL YOU ARE FOR ALL HE DOES IN YOUR LIFE.

Honor God!


search

Matt. 15:8, These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.

IT IS ONE THING TO SAY YOU HONOR AND LOVE GOD, BUT OUR LIVES LIVE WHAT OUR HEARTS REALLY BELIEVE.

People always tell me they love God but they have no interest in obeying Him.

How can you LOVE someone but then WILLINGLY know you are hurting them?

I am not talking about being foolish and stupid (Heb 12:1), but I am talking about willfully and even planning sin and then saying that you honor God.

WHAT IS HONOR?

It is respect with our lips, but our actions must follow.  It cannot be just our lips without our actions because that is the verse Matt. 15:8.  It cannot be works with no lips because then it is working our way to earn approval.  OUR HEARTS DECLARE OUR LOVE AND OUR ACTIONS SHOW OUR HONOR AND RESPECT FOR OUR FATHER.

We ALL have ISSUES that we are working through, but let’s take inventory of our lips versus our walks and see where we are lacking.  

LET’S GET OUR WALK TO MATCH OUR LIPS!

There is an old hymn by James E. Orr that says this:

“Search me, O God, and know my heart today,
Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray;
See if there be some wicked way in me;
Cleanse me from every sin, and set me free.”

SEARCH US AND REVEAL TO US WHERE OUR LIPS AND WALKS DO NOT MATCH!

FREEDOM Is Not FREE


MEMORIAL DAY!

We would like to thank all those who have served in the Armed Forces of America!

This is the greatest country of the world.  It was founded on the Word of God and today represents – FREEDOM!

There is no FREEDOM that is FREE.  There is always a cost.

Our freedom with Jesus cost Him everything!  Hebrews 12:2, We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy  awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.

WE WANT TO HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE DIED, AND THOSE THAT TODAY ARE SERVING ALL OVER THE WORLD!

We also want to thank all of the Police, Fire, and Governmental individuals that are serving as well!

DISHONOR DISQUALIFIES!


HONOR IS CURRENCY – it is a medium of exchange.

Father God declares the power of HONOR in His Kingdom – “I will honor them who honor Me”, God said in 1 Sam 2:30.

When you honor someone – you will listen and receive from that person.  When there is no honor, then no matter what they say, it does not matter.  There is no value if there is no honor!

JESUS EXPERIENCED THIS IN HIS HOME TOWN!

Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house. Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. (Matthew 13:55-58 NKJV)

What is interesting about this text is in verse 54 they were in awe of His authority and power, THEN, familiarity took over!

I KNOW YOU!!  They allowed familiarity to overtake the HONOR of the CALL and ANOINTING!

The Bible says that Jesus could not do many mighty works in that town because of UNBELIEF, but the UNBELIEF did not come first.

THE DISHONOR, LACK OF HONOR CREATED THE UNBELIEF!

Honor is HUGE!

Honor will qualify, or disqualify us from the presence and power of Jesus Christ.

IF YOU HONOR (Respect, highly esteem, make significant) ME, I WILL HONOR YOU!

If you are not going to church, or are bored in church, then get to the altar and HONOR God.  He will then pour out His Spirit to HONOR you!

Duet 12:4-7

Do not worship the Lord your God in the way these pagan peoples worship their gods. 5 Rather, you must seek the Lord your God at the place of worship he himself will choose from among all the tribes—the place where his name will be honored. 6 There you will bring your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, your tithes, your sacred offerings, your offerings to fulfill a vow, your voluntary offerings, and your offerings of the firstborn animals of your herds and flocks. 7 There you and your families will feast in the presence of the Lord your God, and you will rejoice in all you have accomplished because the Lord your God has blessed you.
