You Can't Eat Cheetos® And Lose Weight (Jude 1:3)Thomas Vananda, June 10, 2018
Part of the Revival 2018 series, preached at a Revival service
You can't hold hands with the devil and run with the Lord.
Satan walks about looking for people that he can take down. We are in a constant battle again the devil. There are places where people would tell the preachers to not preach what God has given to them.
We need to leave an example of how good God is. We need to agonize for the power of God. The church should want to be number 1 and strive for it. We should give it all we've got, be in it to win it!
Heb 12:1, we've got to get rid of sin and stop babying it. You're not gonna wake up one day and the sin just be gone. You're gonna have to deal with it to get rid of it. Have you ever seen anyone run with a bowling ball on their hand? Have you ever seen anyone run hand in hand with another? One can't do it. This is a choice that's all about you. You can't blame your teach, preacher or deacon. It's about a choice that YOU'VE got to make. Now God is not gonna leave you out there all on your own. Luke 22:44, Jesus got a vision from Heaven and it strengthened Him. Jesus isn't gonna ask you to do anything that He Himself hasn't done already.
It's important for the next generation coming up that we contend for the faith.
Jude 1:20, are you not getting anything out of the service, preaching or being feed? You've stopped contending for the faith. Pick up your bible and truly study it. God will lead you if you let Him. Put some time into your prayer.
Jude 1:21, you should keep yourself in the love of God. Keep your eyes on Christ.
Jude 1:22-23, stop pointing your fingers at others and have the love of Christ in yourselves. Have some compassion for others. Put the whole armor of God on and when you see someone struggling in sin or going to Hell, help them. This requires you to do something!
The lack of faith will stop you and the church dead in its tracks. Without God, you can not. Without you, He will not.
Heb 11:4, Abel brought a better sacrifice, his best and what God required. Cain brought junk and this went against what God sat forth. Abel dealt with his sin but Cain didn't want to and wanted to do it on his terms. We must ALL deal with our sin. This is the very first step.
Heb 11:5-6, Enoch walked by faith. We must stop walking with ourselves, the world and start walking with God 24/7. Establish a walk with God each and every day. Diligently search out Gods path.
Heb 11:7, Noah worked by faith because God told him something that sounded crazy to others. It shouldn't matter how crazy it might sound, work and do it for God. Trust that what God tells you is truth!
Heb 11:8-10, some sit under the influence of their old sins. If God has forgiven you of your sins then they are forever gone. Abraham and Sara obeyed.
David Max Simpson. Some of us have great family members of Godly influences. Those that had a heritage had a great spiritual upbringing. The others brings us to David Simpson. He parents were not believers at all but was saved at a tent revival. Both of his parents made fun of him and tried to discourage him about his salvation. He prayed for his parents nightly and then was called to preach. He explain to his parents again about his calling to preach and the same results from his parents was received. This man fought for his faith and never gave up and brought up many preachers generation after generation.
Drop your selfish reigns and let God be God.

3Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. (KJV)
