When the Altars Fall Silent
2 Chronicles 7:13-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
We can’t say that God sent this virus. There are plenty of conspiracy theories out there but this came to no surprise or shock to God. We’ve heard the stories about their elders going up to pray, talking about their elders having altars in the woods. This can be a time of revival if you let it. A personal revival. How many Sundays have gone by at the ball field? How many altars have been made by the musicians, Hollywood, etc.? Now it’s been laid in your lap to make a decision on making your altar. Dad’s, you’ve been called to be the spiritual leaders in your house. Fathers, what’s preached from the pulpit should be practiced at home. If you’d get back to the family altar then you’d see things start to fall in place for the good. Fathers, if you want to give your family something that will be the biggest investment, give them Jesus, find your altar. You need to be building an altar. No one can blame the preacher, deacon, others for your lack of commitment to God. It’s all on you now. Until you get it right at home, you’ll never get it right at the house of God. There’s a lot of people today, Christians and the lost, that are scared to death. Their fear has got the best of them. The Christian shouldn’t fear the situation that we are in because God holds them in His very hands. Stop educating yourself with the news and educate yourself with the word of God. A personal revival will lead to a family revival. Stop sending them to church and begin going to church. Did you ever think you would say, “When we get to go back to church...”? That first Sunday morning back will be a great meeting. Habakkuk; He asked about Gods care and control. God hasn’t changed. He still cares and He’s still in control. We don’t know what Gods plan is but we do know His purpose. Everything is shutting down. Malls, movie theaters, stores, restaurants, even bars. Used to be bars were closed on Sundays, but now we know that there are more in the bars on Sunday that in the church house. God has equipped us. Love on others, check on others, give food to others, help out others. God has closed the doors of the church because we become too comfortable in the house of God. You’ve requested the same prayer request over and over but never leave the pew to pray for that prayer. When the altars start to fall silent then we are all in trouble. Get back to the altar, make you a family altar.

Running From Fear
1 Peter 2:13-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
We are to serve God first and foremost because in the end, that is what we are judged by. Paul wasn’t afraid to stand against men for God’s namesake. Many a times he was beat for standing up! God raises countries and puts them down. He is able to raise a governor or a president to make control. Now their might be greed in the political system but in the end, God is still in control. Our governor asked our churches to not meet due to trying to stop the spread of this virus. It is in protection and should be followed. Should we then sit in fear? No! We’ve changed the way we worship temporarily. God has slowed this nation to a crawl and He is able to bring us out of this. Now there was a time when Elijah stood and watched the prophets of Baal cried out, cut themselves and called out to something that wasn’t there. There is not other god other than the ONE that created this place and you. Elijah encouraged them to continue with their worship to this false god. He then, during a drought, gathered gallons of water and prayed to God to prove Himself. Fire came from heaven and licked up ALL of the water proving that God is in full control and is the only one. The world we live in might seem out of control. We can’t control what's happening around us. Now you might be a Christian and sitting in your home wringing you hands, worrying about what is going to happen. Take heart, if God loves the little birds then He loves you! Be encouraged! This is something different, it might get people out of their boxes of comfort and cause them to come to Jesus. Now Elijah ran from his problems and a lot of people will hide in this circumstance. Elijah ran as far as he could go. Now you might be worried about your job, food, health, but rest assured God loves you and will help you thru all of this. God sent an angel to Elijah and this angel took care of Elijah. We don’t know how hard this journey will be but know that God takes care of His children. He will not depart, He’s always right there with you. Once you’ve ran to the end of your road, hit that brick wall then you WILL call out to a higher being, God. Man will create fear, panic, and chaos but God is not in none of that! Elijah was in a cave and was calling out to God asking Him to speak to him. Many thing happened but God wasn’t in them but in a still small voice God spoke from the back of the cave. He was there all along. God asked him what are you doing here? Elijah was worried and explained to God like He didn’t know what was going on. God told Elijah, get down from the mountain, you have no idea what I’ve done. He had no sense of the worrying and to go do His work by preaching His word. So what are you doing during this time? Are you sitting around at the house taking a vacation from God? Sitting a worrying? God will use this for His good. God is showing everyone that we all are sin sick. He’s called His people to stand firm on His word. He has a greater purpose! Be supportive and pray for one another. Pick that bible up and read it. Some have prayed for more time with God, now you have it, take it and use it! It’s a great opportunity to feed yourself. Many of people are too dependent upon the preacher to feed them. Pick up the Word of God and feed yourself!

The Voice of God
1 Peter 2:11-15 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
My Civic Responsibility 1 Peter 2:11-15 Heb 1:1-3 The Voice of God Some will confess in times like these they would say they are fearful. But, in every circumstance God is still the same, He never changes. He is faithful, in the good and the bad. Would you ever believe that ALL of the sports would be cancelled? Would you have ever believed that ALL of the school systems would shut down a force the students to learn from home? Hollywood, concert, gathering, churches, schools, colleges..... all shut down. People are not working, they are now at home. Who would believe that anything could shut America down? Have you ever wanted more time with God, children, family? Today you have that opportunity! Who would have ever thought that God could have used something like this virus to bring us out of the mad house and slow us all down. In almost 1 week everything has shut down. Parents now have opportunities to look their children in the eyes and see what’s important. God speaks. The voice of God is clear. At times we have problems hearing Him not because He’s not loud but because we have things blocking our ears. God spoke to Abraham as a friend but Moses heard Him thru a bush and yet other times on a mountain top. Regardless of the time, God has always wanted to speak to man. A still small voice, a donkey, a fire, a cave, God speaks! Now there was a time when God didn’t speak. Think about if God stopped speaking to you. We are bombarded by all kinds of devices as to where we are able to get a message instantaneously from anywhere in the world. Yet the most important message we often find lost within these device or not at all. The question, how does God speak now? If you think the way you need to live is like those in Israel, that is incorrect. God has put most all of us at home. You have more time to hear God speak then you’ve had in years! Don’t miss what God is trying to do and say. God doesn’t live in the panic or the lies of the world and if you’re not careful you’ll find yourself in a panic or caught in the lies. Don’t be controlled by social media or indulge yourselves in the news. You won’t find peace in those things. Immerse yourself in the word of God. Pick it up, read it, study it, live it! The voice of God is the greatest thing you’ll ever experience. Always remember, God never changes!

Be Still, and Know That I Am God
Psalm 46:1-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
We as persons will trouble and worry about almost everything. Most of those things have nothing to do with God. Also, we tend to want to tell people what to do. Often times we can see a lot of these preachers on TV command God what to do and how to do it. Religion is taking people to Hell by the multitudes. There is only one way true religion and that’s the one that preaches Jesus as the only way to Heaven. Verse one, God is our refuge, a place of security. He is our strength and a time of help in the moment. Psalm 99:9, God IS holy. 1 John 1:5, God IS light. 1 John 4:8, God IS love. John 4:24, God is a spirit, therefore He must be worshipped in the spirit. Psalm 56:9, God is on your side.

Wrath
Romans 5:9 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
When one studies the Old Testaments you’ll see that God was wrathful. He hasn’t changed and is still wrathful. Wrath when studied you’ll see that it means fierce. Psalm 88:6, Isah 2:9 we see it written describing God’s wrath and it being fierce. Now God is love and His wrath is not meant to be hatred. At some point people got to notion that God was to look like a white bearded grandfather. However He is not like you and me as He is eternal and never ages. When we lash out and take vengeance upon someone or something we do it in hatred which means we do it in sin. We see in the story of Moses that God rolled the sea back for the people to cross on dry ground and then He let the sea go. It took the lives of the solders chasing the children. Fierce! Another time we see Moses begging God not to destroy the people. God showed mercy at that time. God was completely justified in doing that. God sent an angel and it killed thousands in the blink of an eye. God controls the breath of each and every persons. There’s not a single person that can say that they will live. Every day God takes people home, young and old, rich and poor. How can God be good in that? How can He be destructive, a God of wrath? If there wasn’t a bad then how could you say there a good? How does one know love if there wasn’t hate? Humans are the only thing that deviates because God gave them a choice. God create animals with a nature and they do not deviate from that nature. The tornadoes that took place in Nashville, God created it. There were people that lost their lives during this storm. Truth - there were people leaving this world prior to that since the beginning of time. Nothing has changed. The nature of a person is sinful and does not want a god to control them. Therefore the human nature wants to blame God for those deaths. Why do bad things happen to good people? Because we are ALL people and we will all suffer. We do not deserve anything that we call good that God does for us. What we deserve is to die in our sins and suffer the consequences of that sin. Some. Christians will sit and declare that we are holy because we because we are a Christian. Only what’s inside makes us different and nothing more. Romans 5:6-9 Nothing changed with the humans. When Jesus came and gave His life for the sins of the world ONLY if they would believe in Him. Isa 52:13-15 Isa 53:1-12, God hasn’t changed, He just poured it all on Jesus and said that the believer could go free.
