I LOVE DADDY’S HOUSE!


Daddy's home

MY GRANDDAUGHTER LOOKS AT MY WIFE AND & I AND SAYS, “I want to go to MAMMY”S house.”

She loves coming to our home and hanging out with her Mammie!  

IN RECENT YEARS PEOPLE HAVE LOST THE PASSION TO BE IN OUR FATHER’S HOUSE!

It used to be that going to church (Daddy’s house) was exciting and it was so woven into the fabric of our lives that it was weird when we were not there on a Sunday and then during the week for teaching.

IN TODAY’S SOCIETY going to Daddy’s home for Sunday morning breakfast or brunch is so low on people’s priorities list.  IT IS CONCERNING!!

Our world offers sports for our children, sleep for the lethargic, money for the craving, excuses for the spiritually stagnant, so the family is no longer coming home to Daddy’s house on a Sunday.  

This might seem like no BIG DEAL, but it is the cunning craftiness of the diabolical to disengage the children from their destiny.  The less you are in the house of our Father, the less you are connected to His vision and direction.

“PASTOR, I PRAY AND READ THE WORD EVERY DAY – I DON’T NEED CHURCH!”

If this is true then why did Father create it?

Church is not man’s idea – it was a God creation just like at creation in Gen. 1.

Jesus is the HEAD and He gave gifts to man (Eph. 4:11-16).

READJUST YOUR PRIORITIES – MAKE DADDY’S HOUSE A PRIORITY FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN AND NOT THE SECOND THOUGHT.  STOP MAKING GOD’S HOME A PLACE WHERE OUR NEXT GENERATION WILL SEE IT AS, “if they have time” instead of LIFESTYLE.

WE ARE CREATING A GODLESS GENERATION FROM WITHIN THE “CHURCH” WHEN WE MAKE DADDY’S HOME A WASTE OF TIME.

Heb. 10:25, not forsaking our meeting together [as believers for worship and instruction], as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more [faithfully] as you see the day [of Christ’s return] approaching.

HOW IT WOULD WOUND MY WIFE’S HEART IF OUR CHILDREN & GRANDCHILDREN DID NOT WANT TO COME TO MAMMY & BAMPIE’S HOUSE.

START BUT NEVER FINISH


finish-the-race

IN MY MORNING PRAYER TIME I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR ALL THOSE WHO STARTED THIS WALK WITH JESUS AND HAVE SIMPLY WALKED AWAY…..

One of the saddest things as a Pastor is watching people who had a powerful experience with Jesus simply walk away and not finish the race.

When I ponder what people have traded Jesus for, it just makes my heart break.  I have watched people trade Jesus for money, someone to lay in bed with, sleep, sports, offenses, laziness, the list is too long to pen……and it breaks the heart of the Father in Heaven.

There is no question that life seems to throw us curve balls and at times even chucks rocks at us, but there is only one who is consistent in our lives and that is Jesus.  Everything else is shifting and changing, even the people in our lives.  He is the only stable.

So why, if Jesus has the only stability people need, do they trade Him away first?

THERE IS NOTHING ON THIS FOOLISH PLANET THAT IS WORTH SELLING YOUR BIRTHRIGHT FOR.

PLEASE DO YOUR PASTOR A FAVOR TODAY……

PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR TODAY……

Ask yourself what you have placed before Jesus and then go and tear down that idol.  Kick that god to the side and embrace the ONLY ONE WHO HAS EVER LOVED YOU UNCONDITIONALLY – His name is Jesus!!

COME ON FINISH THE RACE….CROSS THE FINISH LINE….NO EXCUSES….FOLLOW THROUGH!!

2 Tim. 4:7, I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.

WE FORGET SO EASILY!


forget

DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE IN 3RD GRADE AND THEY WERE TEACHING MULTIPLICATION?  It was so easy to forget so you had to go back over and over the numbers to get them to stick in your head.  It was important that you studied them because the test was coming and you had to pass.

ISN’T IT CRAZY THAT WE CAN HEAR A TRUTH, A POWERFUL WORD FROM GOD AND YET SO SIMPLY FORGET THE TRUTH AND GO BACK TO WHAT WE USE TO DO?

I was praying this morning for a need that I have and was thinking about how much money I have and how tight it would be if I bought it.  The Holy Spirit reminded me that if you own your money when it is gone, it is gone, but that if we are just stewards of Father’s wealth then we have access.  I preached that a few months ago and it was one of those lightbulb moments, yet a few months later I was thinking the old way all over again.

DUH!!

This is where we must like in 3rd grade take a TRUTH of the WORD and drive it into not just our memory, but our muscle memory.  This means that when the situation comes you have so integrated this TRUTH in your life that without thinking you automatically speak and pray that TRUTH OF THE WORD!

I encourage you, just like I have to do myself, go back and remind yourself of those life transforming TRUTHS of the WORD that are mandatory to success in the Kingdom.

STUDY THAT TRUTH UNTIL IT BECOMES PART OF YOUR MUSCLE MEMORY IN YOUR SPIRIT.

2 Tim. 2:15, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Pet. 1:12, Therefore, I will always remind you about these things–even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth you have been taught.

The BIG…..WHY!


img_0075

WHETHER WE ALL CONSCIOUSLY REALIZE IT OR NOT WE DO WHAT WE DO FOR A PURPOSE.

Now….

That could be a crazy purpose!

That could be an accidental purpose!

THE PROBLEM IS WHEN WE DO NOT KNOW OUR “WHY”.

We get up for work….WHY?  Money.

We feed our children….WHY?  So we don’t get arrested…..LOL!!!!

We accepted Jesus….WHY?

We do not read the Bible and spend time in Prayer…..WHY?

WHETHER OUR CHOICES ARE INTENTIONAL OR UNINTENTIONAL, CONSCIOUS OR UNCONSCIOUS….THEY ARE STILL DECISIONS AND THERE IS A WHY ENTANGLED IN THAT CHOICE.

Why do you want to get married….or unmarried?

Why, why , why, why, why, why…..WHAT IS YOUR WHY?

WHEN IT COMES TO JESUS AND YOUR LIFE WE MUST BE INTENTIONAL WITH OUR WHYS.

We are in self-preservation mode, self-satisfaction mode, or Christ pleasing mode.

We all want a great life which means a great harvest.  So that means our why of getting up and praying daily and reading the Word daily has extremely important “WHYS” behind it.

It is not JUST going to heaven!

It is know Jesus and having a relationship with Him!

TODAY…..

WHY ARE YOU DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING?

WILL IT PRODUCE THE HARVEST YOU ARE DESIRING?

WHAT IS YOUR WHY?

Romans 12:1-2, Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

I CAN’T GET NO SATISFACTION….BUT I TRIED!


cant_get_no_satisfaction_new_1024x1024

WHAT A SONG!

“I can’t get no satisfaction….cause I tried…I can’t get no…..”

SO MANY BELIEVERS ARE LIVING A DISSATISFIED LIFE BECAUSE THEIR SATISFACTION IS ROOTED IN THE WRONG GROUND.

Many citizens of heaven are basing their satisfaction, their happiness, their joy, on things this world has to offer rather than simply in Jesus.

Ps. 23:1, The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want (that means no needs, satisfied).

Jesus made this clear to the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4 between temporal and eternal.

John 4:13-14, Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.

WHEN WE ARE DISSATISFIED WITH LIFE WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES THAT GREAT QUESTION, “WHY”….

When Christ is your satisfaction then in all situations you can live in peace of heart and mind.

WHEN CHRIST IS “NOT” YOUR SATISFACTION, then you have to look for temporal things that will satisfy for a short period and then you are going to have to strive to fill that hole again with something NEW.

New always get old – it is just a matter of time.

NO man or woman, husband or wife, job, money, location, home, car, friends, family, no booze, no drug, NOTHING CAN SATISFY WITH LONGEVITY OTHER THAN JESUS.

MAKE JESUS YOUR SATISFACTION AND YOU WILL FIND LIFE COME INTO ORDER AND JOY AND PEACE WILL CONTROL YOUR LIFE RATHER THAN WORKING SO HARD TO FIND SATISFACTION.

Make Jesus #1 in your life today!

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!

FINANCIALLY STRUGGLING?


finances

ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR DIVORCE IN AMERICA IS MONEY!

Our world is wrapped around money.  We get up in the morning and go to work to earn…..MONEY!

The money pays our housing, car, insurances, heating bills…..AHHHHHHH!!!!

SO MANY ARE FINANCIALLY STRAPPED AND STRUGGLING TO WHERE STRESS GRIPS THEM AND FEAR KEEPS THEM AWAKE AT NIGHT.

I have GREAT news for you……JESUS CARES ABOUT YOUR FINANCES AND HAS A FINANCIAL PLAN TO GET YOU FREE FROM DEBT AND STRESS.

Jesus does not want to see you in FEAR or STRESS over MONEY.

DO YOU BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD IS TRUE?

DO YOU BELIEVE THE BIBLE WHEN IT TALKS ABOUT SALVATION?

I have amazing news for you today……..if you believe that the blood of Jesus works to forgive your sins then God’s plan in His Word on how to make you prosper will also work.

THE FIRST STEP IN SUPERNATURAL FINANCIAL BLESSING FROM JESUS IS….TITHING!

Tithing was established by God BEFORE the law to HONOR God and declare Him as our SOURCE.

Heb 7:12, and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything. He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is, king of peace.

Matt 6:24, No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

GOD ESTABLISHED TITHING TO BE THE OPENING OF SUPERNATURAL BLESSING.

So why do people NOT tithe?  If this is God’s plan to get involved and become our personal FINANCIAL ADVISOR AND PROVIDER, then why do most (only 9% of believers tithe in America) NOT TITHE?

We will get into that tomorrow…….

JESUS DEALS WITH EXCUSES…..


excuses

IN CHURCHES ACROSS THE WORLD ON A GIVEN SUNDAY 1/4 TO 1/3 OF THE CONGREGATIONS ARE NOT AT GOD’S HOUSE AS HE COMMANDED.

The is an epidemic of the heart!

THIS IS NOT ABOUT CHURCH ATTENDANCE, THIS IS ABOUT OUR HEARTS AND THE PRIORITIES OF LIFE!

Jesus dealt with this EXACT TOPIC in Luke 14:16-24, But Jesus said to him, “A man was giving a big dinner, and he invited many guests; 17 and at the dinner hour he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, because everything is ready now.’ 18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first one said to him, ‘I have purchased a piece of land and I have to go out and see it; please consider me excused.’ 19 Another one said, ‘I have purchased five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out; please consider me excused.’ 20 And another said, ‘I have [recently] married a wife, and for that reason I am unable to come.’ 21 So the servant came back and reported this to his master. Then [his master,] the head of the household, became angry [at the rejections of his invitation] and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and the lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and the disabled and the blind and the lame.’ 22 And the servant [after returning] said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ 23 Then the master told the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled [with guests]. 24 For I tell you, not one of those who were invited [and declined] will taste my dinner.’”  AMP

JESUS INVITED GUESTS TO DINNER AND GAVE THEM A SHOUT WHEN SUPPER WAS ON THE TABLE.  THE RESPONSE WAS NOT WHAT HE WAS EXPECTING.

Excuses:

I bought some land and want to drive the ATV on it to check it out!

I bought a new car and am going to test it out by skipping church and going on a road trip!

I got married and we are just being lazy and do not want to get out of bed on a Sunday morning!

I love my sport and it is played on Sunday morning so I cannot make it to church!

I got an opportunity to make extra money on a Sunday so I cannot make it to God’s house any longer!

SO MANY EXCUSES……

JESUS IS COMING REALLY SOON……CAST YOUR EXCUSES OUT THE DOOR AND LOVE JESUS FIRST!

WHAT WOULD HAVE TO HAPPEN TO GET YOU TO FULLY COMMIT TO CHRIST?

TODAY IS A NEW DAY AND WE HAVE TO CONSCIOUSLY MAKE A CHOICE ON WHO WE WILL LOVE MOST OF ALL!

I choose Jesus over my wife.

I choose Jesus over my children.

I choose Jesus over my Sophia (granddaughter).

I choose Jesus over my friends.

I choose Jesus over sin.

I choose Jesus over the world.

I choose Jesus over my selfish desires.

I choose Jesus over money.

I choose Jesus over my career.

I choose Jesus over my calling.

I choose Jesus over my sports.

I choose Jesus over acceptance from the crowd.

I choose Jesus over any liquid.

I choose Jesus over my Facebook, computer, and television.

I CHOOSE JESUS OVER EVERYTHING THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER!

This is a decision that needs to be made daily, it is not a one-time decision.

Rom. 12:1, Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship. AMP

Josh 24:15, And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.  ESV

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.
