The Love That Compels
2 Corinthians 5:11-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
It's the love of Christ that has changed those that are Christians. There are many that are not one of His which causes a lot of confusion amongst people however, in the end of time God will separate those from His.

The love of Christ should be what motivates us. People wonder what makes Christians do what they do but it's the love of Christ. There are many that claim their works are for Christ but many of them will be turned away at their death. One thing is that we are to love our neighbors. It makes no difference about what they may have done to you because we are to forgive them. When we try to do things on our own we will run out of fuel at some point because it's us doing it not Christ. The love of Christ will cause one to move across country simply to love on someone.we had nothing to do with Christ's love. He came first to love us first.

One can't love or know what love truly is until they've been born again. A Christian doesn't work for Christ because we want to or out of duty but because He compels us to love. Christ gave ALL He had, He gave His life. He did this because He loved you and yet most still feel He still owes us something else.

Inside the Holy Place

Inside the Holy Place

Ex 26:36 the Vail was beautiful in nature. It was to separate the the Holy Place from the Holy of Holy's. There were two vails of separation, one at the temple to separate the Bronze Altar and Laver from the Holy Place and the other from the Holy Place to the Holy of Holy's. The description of Vail is a separation. In this time there was no way to get to God no matter what they did. The Vail separated man from God. They knew during that time that God was always there because of the ever burning fire and smoke that followed. The vails purpose was that to show that no one could get to God but God had a better way planned. In the beginning, God walked with Adam and Eve but something separated them, sin. Mat 27:50-51 Christ died and then something happened to the vail. God raised up a new tabernacle not made by man but by God. Up until the minute that Christ died the tabernacle was used, the fire for the Altar was still stoked, the bread was still made, the lamps still burnt and the incense still smoldered. But when Christ died, it all stopped and the vail was torn in two. At that point God was saying, come in. It was the greatest example of love and making a way for ALL to be saved and be with Him in Heaven. They did try to fix the vail and placed it right back up. In some religions they are still waiting for the Messiah. They are blind to the truth that Christ has already come, died and rose again while we are waiting for His second coming. Isa 59:1-2 everyone is a sinner but thru Christ those sins are washed clean allowing anyone and everyone that accepts Christ to be with God in Heaven for eternity. Still today there is a vail upon many people's heart. That vail separates you from God. God has opened the vail, His vail to all. It's up to you to rip and remove your hearts vail to accept Christ. Psa 66:18 this is the unbelief, the vail that separates you from God.

Be Reconciled
2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Reconciliation is what God came to do. There is but one thing that separates God from us and that's sin. We have offended God with our actions, rebellion and our words. It happened in the Garden of Eden where we know that man would sin and break the fellowship with God. People think they have that fellowship by their life being good but that is a lie from the devil. The meaning of reconciliation is the filling the gap between God and man. God took the first step in fixing the gap, not man. There is nothing that God can't reconcile. In most all cases when someone is saved, they are not looking for God, in fact God came looking for them.

There is often a mediator during a reconciliation. 1 Tim 2:5-6, Act 4:12 There had to be someone to stand your case. Christ being the mediator stands between your sin and God and claims your case into salvation. There is a method to the mediation as well and that's the taking of the sin thru death, a sacrifice. Once the sin took place in the Garden of Eden, man never walked with God again until the mediator came. Once the mediator came then we now are able to walk with God. God can't look upon sin but how does He look upon a saved sinner? He looks thru the blood of His son Jesus Christ.

Two goats were taken as a sacrifice. One was to be used as a scapegoat and was to have the sin cast upon it and released. The other was to be sacrificed because blood must be shed.

We don't deserve to be saved because we are full of sin. But not only is there a method but there is also a ministry to being reconciled. The ministry is not only for the preachers but to ALL of those that have been reconciled, saved. A saved persons testimony is the greatest ministry there is. It's a responsibility that all that's been saved has and it's the great commission. To go out into the world and tell them about Jesus Christ no matter where they are.

The only thing that keeps you from God is your unbelief. Most feel that God could never love a person like themselves. But God came to them, they didn't go looking for God therefore He comes because He loves them.

Are You Trying To Please God?
2 Corinthians 5:8-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
God is watching and He cares how you walk, talk, dress and act. We know that God can be pleased by our doings but just as He can be pleased He can also be displeased. He co trolls everything in our lives including our breath. It should be our top priority to please God with everything we do. Can you say that you've got the promise of God that you've been saved? Just because you've been promised a heavenly rest doesn't mean you'll have pain to go thru down here. While we are here we should labor and labor hard for God. God has given us that are saved blessings in order to bring forth a harvest. The only thing you have to give is what God gave you. In the end of time there will be a judgement of the good and bad. But there is a judgement for the lost, the wicked, the dead that the saved will not be apart of. The judgement for the children of God requires a reward ceremony for the good things we had done for God while here. Your works whether good or bad will not keep you out of heaven because your salvation is the only way into heaven and can not be taken away. God is not confused with whether you're lost or saved and has trusted you with His talents. What have you done with them?

Dwelling In the Tabernacle
2 Corinthians 5:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit if you've been saved. There is but only one purpose for this body for Christ. It is for Him to dwell to reach others thru the saved. Back in biblical times people had to travel from afar just to worship at the tabernacle. When God dwells in the tabernacle of our soul then don't have to travel at all. What would it be like if you had to get to the church in order to talk to God. What would happen if the doors were locked? Being with others that are worshiping Christ is as close to Heaven as we can get without death. The older one gets the more evident it is that you grow with Christ and the soul groans to be in His presence.
