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.

HEARTS WOUNDED BY REJECTION


rejection

Mark 12:30-31, And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

WHAT IS REJECTION?  It is when someone makes you feel like you are worthless, unimportant, and they treat you like you are a waste of their time.

Rejection begins as a seed!  Everything that begins in our lives comes as a SEED.

Satan wants that seed to get deep enough that it will start growing roots that reach deep and wide in our lives.

Some have been rejected by your moms or dads, family, friends, spouses, children, job, church (abandonment, cruel words, abuse, deaths, divorce, unfaithfulness, comparisons).  Some even feel that God rejected them because they did not get a prayer answered.

Whatever seed takes root, that is the fruit the tree will produce.

If the seed is rejection, and it takes root, then the tree will produce, “I am not worth it,” “I am not important,” “I am not valuable” thoughts. These thoughts produce the desire to be FAKE so that you are accepted by others.

When you reject yourself because someone else has said you are not valuable, the fruit from the tree will be a bad attitude, anger, bitterness, depression, negativity, judgmentalism, controlling spirit, harshness, no-confidence, rebellion, distrust, escapism, medicating themselves…..

THE SEEDS THAT GROW INTO ROOTS OF REJECTION ARE EVIDENT IN OUR RELATIONSHIPS.

We go into PROTECTIVE MODE so nobody can hurt us again.

MAYBE YOU HAVE SAID THESE STATEMENTS.  IF YOU HAVE, YOU ARE IN PROTECTIVE MODE BECAUSE OF A WOUND.

I’ll never let anyone do this to me again!

They won’t hurt me because I don’t care!

You strike out to hurt before being hurt!

You buy things, or collect animals because they don’t judge or reject you!

Perfectionism. Nobody can meet my expectations.  Isolation.

Manipulation of people & environments!

Medicate through drugs, alcohol, sex….

You always run when you see rejection might happen!

Refusal to become VULNERABLE!

YOU DESERVE TO BE HEALED!  YOU DESERVE TO BE WHOLE!  JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR HEALING!

Keep the FAITH in the DARKEST TIMES!


light

Ok, so, Joseph had a supernatural encounter with God, the real deal!

He get’s mugged by his own brothers and thrown into a pit.
He then is sold into slavery.
He is on his own, no family, no friends, no normal environment.
He is then sold again into Potiphar’s house.

What did Joseph do?
He kept the faith, relied upon his God, didn’t give up, didn’t blame God, didn’t get bitter
BECAUSE HE KEPT THE FAITH, he was blessed, prospered, rose in authority, received favor.

GLORY TO GOD, EVERYTHING IS ON THE UPSWING! The recession is over!! Everything is looking better, whewwwwwww!

ummmm, hang on..

Gen. 39:7-8, 12, 17 / FALSE ACCUSATIONS
Potiphar’s wife wanted Joseph, but he would not have sex with her, so, she got mad and said he tried to rape her. Who is a husband going to believe? Can you imagine Joseph’s emotions?
God!! Where are you??
This is not true, I didn’t do it, I was doing right and NOW THIS!
Joseph was being blessed even in the midst of his great loss of everything he knew. NOW, it gets worse! 

Gen. 39:20-21 Joseph was not just a sold into slavery, now he is thrown into prison!
Hello God?
Where are you?
I thought that day you spoke to me everything was going to be perfect and it would all go my way. Now look, I want nothing to do with you!
This church stuff doesn’t work, this faith, this Bible junk isn’t working for me, I’m outta here!

Gen. 39:21, 23
This was not the heart of Joseph, he kept the faith, trust and relationship even though it didn’t make sense, even though it looked bad, he never took his eyes off his relationship with God.

Because of this – God didn’t take him out, He took Joseph through with blessing, favor and prosperity.

REMEMBER- HE IS IN PRISON!

Gen. 40 Pharaoh’s butler and baker were thrown in prison. They both had dreams. One would be killed, and the other restored.
Joseph supernaturally interpreted the dreams!
Don’t forget me when you get restored butler.

2 years later, not an hour, not a week, not a month, not a year, 2 years later, he is remembered.

How many would give up if they had to wait 2 years for their answer? Joseph kept the faith, he did not give up, he never lost trust. That doesn’t mean at times he did not wonder, but he did not allow the flesh to win and drive him away from God.

EVERYONE LIKES THE PART OF SAVING EVERYONE – BUT – IF JOSEPH HAD NOT KEPT FAITH FOR VICTORY YOU AND I WOULD NOT BE SAVED. 
If you don’t keep the faith and victory, how many will not be saved?

NOT IF, BUT WHEN….


Fasting-black-and-white

FASTING?  You mean that I should actually give up food for a few days?

WHY WOULD I WANT TO DO THAT ?

In humanity there are two main drives, FOOD & SEX.  When you look at our soulish, fleshly side these two are what most are consistent with in their lives.  Majority of people eat at least 3 times a day…..at least!

JESUS MADE A STATEMENT in Matt. 6:16, And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.

JESUS ALSO POINTED OUT THAT YOU NEED TO FAST TO EMPOWER YOURSELF AGAINST THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY.

Matt. 17:21, Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE FOR FASTING?

The #1 reason we fast is to take control over our flesh and bring it into subjection.

Fasting does nothing for God, it is for US!  When we fast it takes our strongest human drives and makes them submit to the Holy Spirit.  It is allowing Jesus to take first place even before your physical passions.

HOW DO I FAST?

During the times that you are supposed to be eating or doing whatever you are fasting, you should be praying or reading the Word of God.  THIS WILL BE FEEDING YOUR SPIRIT INSTEAD OF YOUR FLESH.

You will find that after you chew your arms off the first day….lol, that your flesh will come into subjection and you will begin to hear the voice of the Spirit so clear.

I CHALLENGE YOU TO OBEY JESUS….NOT “IF” YOU FAST, BUT “WHEN” YOU FAST!

This week at His Tabernacle Family Church we have fasting and prayer.  Monday – Thursday evenings from 7-8 we meet in the sanctuary and pray together.  You can also join the prayer line every Monday – Thursday and agree with us on the phone at 712-775-7100  124064#.

PRAY AND FAST FOR THE GREATEST RESULTS OVER YOUR FLESH!

CUT YOUR ARM OFF!


cut

WHAT?

THAT IS SICK!

IS IT OR IS IT SHEAR INTELLIGENCE?

Matt. 18:8-9, If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.

SO JESUS IS TELLING ME TO HACK UP MY BODY?  THAT IS CRAZY!

Here is the TRUTH! 

If there is a thing, a place, a situation that is the gateway for the sin that constantly trips you up, then GET RID OF IT!

Heb 12:1, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…..

If you are an alcoholic and you keep going to the bar or buying booze……..

If you are addicted to drugs but keep hanging out with your friends who do drugs…..

If you have a problem with porn and you keep playing on your computer……

If you are having sex before or after marriage with someone you are not supposed to……

THE LIST OF SINS WOULD BE NEVER ENDING…THE POINT IS THIS…..

Get rid of, stop putting yourself in the places and around the people or circumstances that would tempt you with the sin that so easily ensnares you!  

TO BE ENSNARED MEANS YOU ARE OWNED BY IT!

Today is your day of decision to be FREE.  Choose to break off relationships, stop going certain places, cease surrounding yourself with temptations.

John 8:32, And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

JESUS SET YOU FREE!

You Taste SALTY.. Nasty!


Genesis 19:17
So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.”

Genesis 19:26
But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Lot’s wife had a love affair with Sodom, and the lifestyle of the world. It cost her everything in the attempt to grab that old life. 

This is one of the saddest moments in ministry. Watching people choose their old life over the life of Jesus. I can remember as each soul received Jesus and the joy that covered their face and the peace that flooded their soul. You could see the change in their lives, and they could not wait to be in the presence of Jesus. Their passion for the Word, getting into classes, asking question after question as they grew in relationship.

THEN!

THE CROSSROADS……everyone comes to those crossroads. The temptation to go back!

A friend, a job, a party, some sex, a man or a woman……

THE CROSSROADS….

Many choose to go back to their old life. They choose to return to what they hated in the first place. They asked Jesus to take them out of that lifestyle, they ESCAPEDbut did not choose to cut ALL the cords. They always left a little door open, just a small one, just enough….

2 Peter 2:22
But it has happened to them according to the true proverb:A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”

Do not be like Lot’s wife – she lost it all because she did not cut the love of the world. Run all the way to Jesus, and do not look back!

Luke 9:62
62 But Jesus said to him, “ No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

LIVE RIGHT!


I have heard people say that they cannot live right before the Lord.

Some have told me that only Jesus can make us live right, so they don’t pay attention to it.

Many Christians believe that after they confess Jesus that they can live any manner they desire.  They can party, commit fornication (sex before marriage), live like hell and because they said that little prayer, all is well.

WE MAKE CHOICES TO OBEY, OR LIVE OUR OWN LIFE.

Romans 7:21-25, I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. 22 I love God’s law with all my heart. 23 But there is another power* within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. 24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.

Today it is so important as we begin this week to realize we are not slaves to sin any longer.  JESUS SET US FREE!

Today it is so important to realize that our lives are not our own.  WE HAVE BEEN BOUGHT A PRICE!

Today it is so important to realize that we are the only Jesus some will ever see.  

THROUGH JESUS YOU CAN BE THE TESTIMONY THAT DRAWS OTHERS TO THE SAVING KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS.

Here is a challenge for you….

ASK 3 PEOPLE IF YOU ACT LIKE A CHRISTIAN.
