WOW! WHAT UNHOLY BOLDNESS!


sin

THERE IS A DECEPTION SWEEPING THROUGH THE BODY OF CHRIST THAT YOU CAN LIVE ANY MANNER YOU WOULD LIKE AND STILL GO TO HEAVEN!

I can get drunk!

I can have sex outside marriage!

I can commit adultery!

I can lie, cheat, steal, cuss……. JESUS WILL FORGIVE ME!

WOW!  WHAT UNHOLY BOLDNESS!  It is almost like Jesus is serving us with His forgiveness as we live any way we want.

WAKE UP!

DO NOT DECEIVE YOURSELF!

1 Pet. 1:16, For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”

Heb. 12:14, Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.

2 Cor. 6:17, Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.

IF YOU ARE LIVING IN SIN AND THINKING THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HEAVEN IT IS TIME TO HAVE SOME REALITY SHOCK TREATMENTS.  It will be better to be shocked here than when you end up in the wrong location.

WHEN WE LOVE GOD MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, ELIMINATING SIN IS NOT DIFFICULT.

1 John 2:15-17, Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

PLEASE WAKE UP AND STOP DECEIVING YOURSELF….

JESUS LOVES YOU SO MUCH AND OUR LOVE FOR HIM DEMANDS AN OBEDIENT RESPONSE.

HATE SIN LIKE YOU HATE SATAN AND KEEP YOUR ETERNITY SECURE.

RESPOND TO JESUS


respond

JESUS IS ALWAYS IN THE POSITION TO BLESS AND BUILD YOU….

but

YOU MUST RESPOND IN OBEDIENCE TO ACTIVATE HIS BLESSING!

Dr. Myles Munroe said it this way, “You cannot be a lawbreaker and expect to enjoy the benefits of the country.”

We are the ones who can stop the blessings of heaven in our own lives when we choose not to respond to the Word and Holy Spirit.  It is not Jesus keeping things from you!

THE WORD IS TRUE AND GOD CANNOT LIE!

Electricity comes to our homes and in the room is the electrical switch on the wall.  We know the power is there to accomplish the task of putting the lights on, BUT UNTIL WE HIT THE LIGHT SWITCH THE POWER REMAINS DORMANT.  

RESPOND – act or behave in reaction to someone or something: 

JESUS HAS ACTED – NOW – IT IS TIME FOR US TO REACT, RESPOND TO HIM.

Deut 28:1, If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.

Deut 5:33, Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.

James 1:22, Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

I AM NOT SAYING YOUR SITUATION IS SIN – if it is respond in obedience and repent.

I AM SAYING TO RESPOND IN FAITH TO HIS WORD – His Word, Constitution, Covenant, Promises are TRUTH and you can TRUST His Word in your life!!!

Today, respond to Jesus in whatever capacity or situation that you are involved in and watch the blessing of God be released in your life!

HE LONGS TO BLESS YOU, SO RESPOND.

MY RIGHTS…..WHAT IS GREATER?


fight-for-my-right

WHAT IS GREATER THAN MY RIGHTS?

GRACE & MERCY

We want what we rightfully deserve in this life and when we do not get it we call it “UNFAIR”.

This is why people take others to court and sue them, for their rights and getting what they feel they deserve.

I have a right to……….

Think this way

Act this way

Divorce

Hate

Drink

Lie

The list is NEVER ENDING!

WHAT IS STRONGER THAN OUR RIGHTS? 

This question has to be asked because if we all get what we deserve from God then we are all damned.  Grace and mercy are powerful principles that we should not just be willing to receive, but we must also be willing to give!

Matt. 10:8b, Give as freely as you have received!

WE ALL DESERVE DEATH!  Rom. 6:23, For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

BUT GOD…

John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

MERCY is not getting what we deserve, and we all deserve to pay for our own sins.

GRACE is the power to live correctly once we obtain the mercy.

WE ARE HAPPY TO RECEIVE GRACE AND MERCY, BUT MANY DO NOT GIVE IT TO OTHERS BECAUSE THEIR RIGHTS HAVE BEEN OFFENDED.

BE A PERSON OF MERCY & GRACE AND ALLOW THEM TO BE STRONGER THAN YOUR “RIGHTS” AND YOU WILL SEE MORE HEAPED UPON YOU.

I DO GOD MY WAY!


My way

I AM RIGHT WITH JESUS.  I WILL GO TO HEAVEN.  DON’T JUDGE ME!

Really….

Since when do you have the right to tell God how you will get to heaven doing your own thing?

YOU HAVE CONVINCED YOURSELF TO BELIEVE A LIE!

You cannot live any manner you desire and say you are in right standing with Jesus.

You cannot sin, live in sin, make sin your standard and go to heaven.

SO MANY HAVE CREATED THEIR OWN BIBLE AND ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT GOD IS OBLIGATED TO OBEY IT, OR THAT HE HAS TO ACCEPT THEIR NEW-FOUND BELIEFS.

So deceived.

So sad.

SO GOING TO THE LAKE OF FIRE NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU TRY TO CONVINCE YOURSELF.

Gal. 6:7-8, Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.

John 14:15, If you love me, obey my commandments.

1 John 2:15-16, Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions.

STOP LYING TO YOURSELF.

YOU ARE NOT GOD, YOU DO NOT MAKE THE RULES.

YOU CANNOT LIVE ANY MANNER YOU WANT AND BE RIGHT WITH HIM AND GO TO HEAVEN!

Repent, turn from your sin and then you will be in right standings with the King.

Did I Do THAT?


DID I DO THAT?

Do you remember Steve Urkel would say that after wrecking an entire house with one smooth swoop?

THE REAL QUESTION IS NOT “Did I do that?”, BUT, “WHY DID YOU DO THAT?”

Until you can figure out the WHY, then you will keep wrecking everything around you and you will blame everything, and everyone else for your choices.

Prov. 14:12, There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

WHY DO YOU CUSS?

WHY DO YOU LIE?

WHY DO YOU DRINK?

WHY DO YOU SMOKE WEED?

WHY DO YOU SLEEP AROUND?

WHY DO YOU SKIP JESUS AND HIS HOUSE?

WHY DO YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE THE WAY THE WORLD DOES?

The question is not, “DID I”, the real question is the “WHY”!

We can justify anything we want because as Proverbs says, there is a way that seems right that leads to death.

WE CHOOSE…..THEREFORE WE ARE!

Who are you trying to please?

Who are you trying to be accepted by?

Who are you living for?

WHAT WE DO IS DRIVEN BY A WHY, AND THEN CAN BE ROOTED BACK TO THE WHO WE ARE TRYING TO PLEASE.

Gal. 1:10, Now am I trying to win the favor of men, or of God? Do I seek to please men? If I were still seeking popularity with men, I should not be a bond servant of Christ (the Messiah).

FIGURE OUT THE WHY AND THE WHO, AND BE FREE!

Please Jesus first, and you will always live in great success.

PLEASE!! BE QUIET!


James 1:19, So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath

SSS..LLL..OOO..WWW……..

LET’S JUST BE HONEST – nobody has to help us sin!

Proverbs 10:19, In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise.

IF WE CAN RESTRAIN OUR LIPS WE ARE CALLED WISE…..I want to be wiser!

Can we imagine how little trouble we would get ourselves in if we would just BE QUIET?

“I CANNOT CONTROL MYSELF”

That is a LIE!

Rom. 6:6, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.

LET’S DO OURSELVES A FAVOR TODAY – BE QUIET.

Here is your homework:

CHOOSE NOT TO TALK EXCEPT WHEN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.  WHEN YOU ARE NOT TALKING, BE LISTENING, AND TALKING TO JESUS.

This will be a PEACEFUL DAY!!

TRUTH vs Lies! Pt. 2


Lies try to come in and steal your victory all the time.  We must have the answers to thwart those lies.  The ONLY answers are from the WORD OF GOD!

As we speak the TRUTH we will be FREE!

2. I am young, and I am strong, and the word of God abides in me and I have overcome the evil one.1Jn2:14
3. I have not been given the spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind ~ 2 Timothy 1:7

YOU ARE TOO TIRED, JUST GIVE UP!  LIE!!!

I AM never giving up, Daddy will give me strength!

1. My God quickens my mortal body by his Holy Spirit who dwells in me and I build up myself upon my most holy faith by praying in the Holy Ghost. Romans 8:11/Jude 20
2. When I am weak, Jesus is strong ~ 2 Corinthians 12:10
3. My faith stands in the power of God and not in the wisdom of man. All things are possible unto me because I can believe. 1 Corinthians 2:5/Mark9:23

YOU WILL NEVER WIN!  LIE!!!

​I CANNOT LOSE with Jesus on my side!

1. I overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of my testimony. Revelation 12:11

3. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. 2 Corinthians 5:21/Philippians 4:13

MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL..


Eph. 5:1-2, Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

John 14(b, Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you?

Mirrors are amazing…

They get a ton of attention each day as we stare into them to see our reflection.  Some days it is, “WOW, you’re handsome” and other days it is, “Oh my goodness, how could a zit be so HUGE?”.

There is one thing for sure, the mirror doesn’t lie.  It only shows what it sees.  We can cover it, we can smash it, but the only thing it can actually do is show what it reflects.

MANY PEOPLE CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS, BUT WHAT THEY REFLECT IS ANYTHING BUT….

They cuss the same!

They drink the same!

They toke the same!

They act the same as everyone else in the world.

WE CAN SAY WE LOVE JESUS, WE CAN DECLARE WE ARE CHRISTIANS, BUT WHAT DOES THE MIRROR SAY?

What is the true reflection?

WHEN PEOPLE LOOK AT YOU, HOW, AND WHAT DO THEY SEE?

HERE IS YOUR HOMEWORK FOR THE DAY…….

Ask 3 people who are not born again if you reflect Christ.  They might respond, “you,re a good person” or “you go to church”, but be more direct with them, “WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME DO YOU SEE THAT I LIVE FOR JESUS?”

Mirror, mirror on the wall – YOU DON’T LIE!  TELL ME THE TRUTH SO I CAN CHANGE MY LIFE TO REFLECT THE MASTER AND SAVIOR JESUS!!!

Can’t Have BOTH!


Somehow the church of today has convinced itself that they can have ALL of Jesus, and ALL of sin at the same time.

It reminds me of the picture of the child with his hand in the cookie jar but he cannot get his hand out because he grabbed so many that his fist will not fit through the opening.

We have a grace message that is prominent in the body of Christ that says you can SIN all you want and God does not care.  THAT IS A LIE!

As a believer we cannot have a fist full of sin and think we can have the BEST OF GOD!

Gal. 6:7-8, Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.

1 John 2:4-6,  If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.

DON’T ALLOW THE LIES OF THE WORLD – EVEN THE LIES OF THE CHURCH – TO STEAL FROM YOUR WALK WITH CHRIST.

God is INTOLERANT of SIN!

God is NOT OK with SIN!

John 15:14, You are my friends if you do what I command.

CHOOSE JESUS, NOT THE WORLD!

1 John 2:15-17, Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.

Don’t Tell ME Jesus


Over the years of ministry I have heard more people than I can count on one hand say that they just need a break from church, or they needed a break from the people of God.

I need to be honest – when people make this statement my mind simply says, “I wonder if they will go to heaven?”

BUT 

I can hear the retort, “Pastor you do not have to go to church to go to heaven.”

AND

That is true!

BUT

WHEN JESUS AND HIS KINGDOM ARE YOUR PRIORITY, YOU GO TO CHURCH!

BUT

“I have been burned at church, that is why I do not go.”

REALLY?

So you stop going to work when you feel mistreated, NO, because money is more important!

NO
It really comes down to Jesus being first in your life.  He is the Head of His church, and He created the church, so when a person does not go to church they are simply saying, “Get me out of hell, but I do not care what You want me to do.”  

WE HAVE ALL OUR EXCUSES LINED UP!  I don’t like this, I want more of this, this person said this, I am mad at this……… BOGUS!

BUT

The bottom line is easy.  God is not your priority!  God is good enough to send His Son to die to get you out of hell, but not good enough to OBEY!  Do not lie to yourself, what you consider a priority, you do!  So when church is nothing more than IF you can find time, then literally you are telling God to get to the back of the bus.

HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS!

Heb. 10:24-25, And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

Eph. 4:11, Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.

Col. 1:18a, Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body.

John 15:1-2, “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.

2 Tim. 4:2,  Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

GET TO CHURCH!  GET INVOLVED IN MINISTRY!  PRODUCE FRUIT!

MAKE JESUS MORE THAN YOUR SAVIOR, MAKE HIM YOUR LORD!
