The Importance of Prayer
James 5:14-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
There are those out there that when they speak we are just amazed on their ability. There is something different when it comes to the word of God. The last message we heard was over the Christians responsibilities. Does anyone really know how to communicate with God? We can try our very best to do so but we fail time and time again. In our time of today we see that the world is quickly falling apart. All one has to do is look back in history to see that when the world gets bad, God steps in and does something great. If we think about what we know about genealogy we can figure out about how old the earth is. The earth is only about 6000 years old. 4000 years prior to Christ and after Christ only about 2000. Stop and think about Noah and his life of prayer. He was one man that only saved 8 people in the ark. Those 8 people replenished they earth. Abraham was also another that was a praying man. Thru Christ he saved many of people. If we get serious about prayer then he will work. He doesn’t have to hear from hundreds of people, He only requires of one. An effectual and fervent prayer of one person. Most of us doubt that our prayers are even going thru or they won’t mean much. What do you think would happen if we as a group of believers got together and prayed? The problem is that our priorities are all out of order. We spend more time watching TV, working, or even eating. Over and over in the Bible we read of where God heard just ONE person and acted on it. Luke 11:1-10 The importance of prayer is persistence. In this scripture we see how to pray but Jesus followed it up with a story. A story of a man that went to his friend late at night asking for some bread. This man didn’t give up knocking until he received the bread. The point of the prayer is, don’t stop until you get thru and your prayer is answered. A lot of times we want to pray for something so we get down and pray and quit. We expect God to do something just because we asked for it. When it doesn’t happen we get discouraged, angry, or just give up. Jesus Himself told us to pray without stopping until we get the answer to that prayer. If God answered our prayers on the first time each and every time then He would just be our genie in a bottle. We should see Him as a GOD, all powerful, all mighty, all knowing. We should petition Him and be asking Him because we love Him and are humbled before Him. We can’t just snap our fingers and expect God to jump. 1 John 3:22 One has to live right in order for God to hear them. God will NOT be manipulated into doing something from you.

Christian Responsibilities
Hebrews 10:19-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
What is our responsibility in a powerful world? What is God going to measure us to? Each person will be judged on their own doings. Hold fast to your faith, be faithful. Be faithful in whatever to God all the time. Let your life be an example of God. How you deal with other, in your service to God. Consider one another. Be considerate of another. Recognize the ones around you and their needs. Many want to lay down and give up. Be careful of the souls that surround you. Speak life, not death to others. Everyone needs encouragement. Provoke one another to love and good works. Don’t fail to assemble yourselves together. One thing that is true is that the enemy has broken the assembly during this pandemic. There are still churches that are not meeting. The pastor is not the only one but the people, the fellowship of the believers. You’ll often miss Gods word if you begin to miss the gather of Gods people. He didn’t set up the church as an individual fellowship but a group setting.

Not In This Alone
1 Peter 5:6-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
A lot will want verse 7 but they forget verse 6. How many of you will humble yourself before God prior to throwing your cares upon Him. Now we can try to tell in words how great God is, it’s just a sliver of what He really is. We read about a God that can do anything, any time, at any way possible. In biblical times we know that the leaders would torture people just because the masses enjoyed as entertainment. They would place children and babies in arenas and turn lions loose to entertain those watching. Yet we think that we currently have a horrible life. God has all power yet we must be able to fully grasp Him. We live in a time where people are scared to death of the things that are currently taking place. The truth is that it will get worse before it will get better. If it’s not Covid then it will be something else. People have died way before Covid was around. We should not be concerned about dying but about the after death life. Thru all of our struggles, God can do anything, everything! The problem is due to pride. When you get down in your sorrow and worry, look up to God. If you hold on to the worry and doubt then your pride is telling you that you can fix it or control it. This is a lie. One will never say they are sorry until they are humbled. Now if God wants one humbled then He can do it. But God says that we should humble ourselves, not Him to humble us. Go often to Calvary. The suffering that Jesus Christ went thru for us is beyond anything anyone has ever gone thru. When you are able to see Christ then you will be throwing you worries to Him. We won’t give up until all of our cares are upon Him.

Who Are You Following?
Joshua 3:1-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Many of movies have been made about the ark of the covenant, searching for it. We don’t know if the ark is still in existence or not. The ark is a representation of something to come later in time. The ark was covered in pure gold including the poles in which they used to carry it. On top of it was two cherubs also made of solid gold. Also on the top was a mercy seat where the priest would offer the blood of the animals to God. The ark also contained some things. It had the Ten Commandments, the law. We have the fulfillment of the law, they just had the law and the law only. There was also manna in the ark, the very substance that kept the Israelites alive. We have the living provision not just for the flesh but for the soul. Lastly they staff of Aaron which bloomed. They had an image of something but we have the real. Now just for them when they had the ark, it would become the most important thing in their life. For us, it’s Christ and without Him we are nothing. Joshua 3:3 This is the direction to follow. Christ also stated to us to follow Him. We can’t get ahead of Him without following and let Him lead. Joshua 3:4 It was instructed that they must stay a certain distance back from the ark. This was so that all eyes could see it and know where to go. One can’t follow something that can’t be seen. How many of you know the directions to Heaven? We don’t know our journey but, Christ does. Keep Him in front of you. Joshua 3:5 They were instructed to clean themselves. They had to be prepared and just as they were instructed we are also instructed to stay prepared. We should always stay prepared for Gods wonders. All one has to do to see Gods wonders is to keep ourselves clean, prepared. Joshua 3:11 In this time just as today, there are many gods. People worship all kinds of things and those things have no power. There is only one God and He is the god of everything. Joshua 3:15-17 Remember the ark is Christ and the Jordan is something they can’t cross alone, death. They were instructed to simply go to the edge of Jordan and simply put the tip of their toe in it. Once that took place, then the Jordan dried up in that one spot. They then took the ark to the middle of the dried of Jordan and stopped and allowed everyone to pass thru Jordan as it was dry. It’s stated they walked thru dry ground, not muddy. We will all experience death. All one has to do is just touch it and Christ takes it from there. Christ takes over because He’s already crossed over and knows the way.

Almost Saved is Altogether Lost
Acts 26:24-29 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Seems the culture that we live in is going backwards. It’s the belief that if one is good-enough then one will go to Heaven. You’ll never find in the Bible that that belief is right. If one asks someone if they are going to Heaven they will usually say yes. But, if you press them on why then they will struggle with a truthful answer. Everyone will die, after death a eternal home. Where will your home be? Heaven or Hell. It’s a Christians duty to share the truth of salvation to the lost. Any church one goes to you will always sit among those that are “almost” Christians. Justification is not a process, it’s an event. It happens immediately once your born again. One can’t work for it, it’s given by Christ Himself. Being a Christian requires a conversion. Some will says they once they stop sinning then they will turn to God. That day will never take place because a person is always sinning. The religious lost. A bunch of folks just go to church. This does not mean that you shouldn’t attend church. Attending a church does not make one a Christian. Some folks make a big deal out of dressing up. If you think that your attire will make you a Christian, you’ve been mistaken and taught incorrectly. The religious lost go to church to do the “church” things. They attend during Christmas and Easter. As much as your church family loves you. As much as God loves you. You still must be saved in order to go to Heaven. The emotional lost. Some people work off of an emotion. They see or feel something and think that is what makes them saved. Those that feed off of those emotions in order to bring salvation are misleading the lost. The only way one knows if they’ve been born again is if the Spirit bares witness. A lost person doesn’t know where home is because they’ve never been home. One should never tell another person that they’ve been saved. This is because you truly don’t know. Our church membership is based on YOUR testimony of salvation. Many people live in sin because they’ve never been saved. Have you received the spirit of Christ?
