|Enemies Of The Cross; Advancing|
|Philippians 3:12-21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We live in a world that hates Christ. This is not anything new as this has been going on sin Adam and Eve. The question is, are you in the battle for Christ, are you prepared? One may say to themselves and possibly others that they would never be an enemy to Christ. However, if you’re not for Him then you’re against Him. So check yourself, look at your checkbook. Usually what you spend the most on is what you love the most. If you’ve been born again then you should be willing to say, here I am Lord, send me. But, usually we say, I can’t do that cause I’m not qualified. We have the greatest opportunity to advance for Christ. What are are your eyes on? If something is advancing then something is being followed. Are you moving forward with Christ? Just because your name is on the church books means nothing if you’re not working for Christ and one of His. Your past will hold you back if you let it. Repent of your past and move forward. We should cut the bind that hold us back. When you’re chasing after something you usually don’t reach your arms out until you’re about to capture it. Usually when you’re in a race your greatest burst of energy is once you see the prize, the end. What are you doing for God? Church attendance is not the problem. The problem comes from within you. Once you fall in love with Christ then you’ll realize you can’t live without Him. All of those problems like attendance or simply sitting on the bench will get corrected. So which way are you going? Confused about which way to go, do you need direction? Begin with your Bible, it’s the light and the path and will not lead you astray. If you’re born again and another brethren is also born again then your paths are clear and in it for the same reason. Keep moving forward, keep advancing.|

|What More Do You Want?|
|Numbers 13:23-14:4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
Only God is sovereign and only He knows our hearts. People usually think that everything goes to Heaven when it dies. Dogs, cats, loved ones and other living things. The truth is that only saved living souls will go to Heaven.
The children of Israel had proof of God, grapes that took two men to carry that they all ate from, water that flowed from a rock once struck by a stick, in the desert a cloud followed them to shade them, fire to guide them by night, food that fell from the sky and yet they did not believe. Still today when God performs miracle after miracle all around you and yet you still don't believe. The question is not about whether God exist but if He's the son of God. We acknowledge that God created the world that we live in because there is proof all around us. We live in His creation, we take the breath that He gives, we see birth after birth and yet we still want MORE proof that He Is God. It only took one negative report for the entire group of Israelites to doubt Gods work.
Each day, each second the adversary is lying to you trying to get you to doubt Gods existence. One can not believe the doubts, lies from the enemy and yet still believe in Christ. If you don't believe the bible simply look towards history, the walls of Jericho fell down. A great and fortified wall which fell by simply walking around it. 40 years the Israel people wondered around in a circle all on the wilderness until all the unbelievers died. Joshua and Caleb was a old man and was forced to wait 40 more years just because others wouldn't believe and yet once the time came they still believed. John 12:42-43 even then people believed in a god but didn't believe in God. You can say all day long that you know or believe in what God can and did do, but in the end, salvation is the only way to Him. Salvation is a confession in Jesus Christ and that He was risen from the grave. Rom 10:8-10 what does the bible say?

|Death, It's Coming|
|1 Corinthians 15:51-58 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There is a day that the corruptible and mortal will become incorruptible and immortal. One can not deny that death is real. We will all die at some point or another. Death is an adversary that can not be avoided. No power here on this earth is capable of stopping death. Death will catch us all. We should all live like today is your last day and do Gods work like it's your last, having a sincere fear of being judged. The death of the wicked, the lost, have sin and no remedy for it and it is a sting an uncomfortable feeling. A saved person has had their sins forgiven by God and therefore the sting of death has been removed. So what sin is the sin that can't be forgiven of? It's the sin of rejecting Jesus Christ as your personal savior. If you die without accepting Jesus Christ as your savior that sin will keep you out of Heaven. Your salvation is not based of you or a priest, it's based on accepting Jesus Christ as your savior.|

|Always In Love|
|Jude 1:17-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We live in a time where people call wrong right and the right wrong. God is always in control no matter how hard or easy life is. If you don't the Spirit of Christ then you are lost in darkness. If one lives in a life thinking that it's us against them, then one has missed the mark. A Christian adversary is not against a person or a political agenda, it's a spiritual battle against Satan and his demons. Jesus Christ came to earth to give His body as a sacrifice for ALL sinners. One only has to believe in Him in order to be saved. We as Christians are not in the business of saving the lost. There will be some that will not be saved only by their choice. It's not Gods will that they die lost. The very thing that allowed one to be saved is a Holy Faith. Without faith it's impossible to serve God. No matter what we have to go through down here on earth, Gods love and our Holy faith will bring us through anything. When the time comes when it gets hard we should pray in the Holy Ghost. We should keep ourselves in the love of God. We can't keep ourselves saved, God does that part but we are to keep ourselves as clean as possible. We are to strive to stay with God and not waver, stay in love with God. When one falls in love with someone they surrender to the other and do whatever it takes to stay with them. Some are weak spiritually and we are to help those, love them, have compassion on them. We should know the difference between weak and willful. We should help the weak through compassion to get them stronger in the Lord. None of us are exempt of being weak. Some must hear that God controls their life and if they don't live for God, He will take full control. Jude 1:24, if you've ever wondered if salvation is eternal or can ever be wavering.|

|Just In Spite Of|
|Romans 7:18-8:8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There will be times in a Christians life when the devil will throw your past in your face. You're flesh craves the bad things, what the devil gives and reminds. A weapon that can be used to fight the devil against your past is that God has cast your past sinful life as far as the east is from the west. Satan can not condemn you of something that Christ has removed. A saved person can not stay in sin. They may linger in sin but, in the end a decision must be made. Those that are lost walk in sin and will not and can not please God. The best part of it all, 1 John 2:1-2 you will never walk alone if you're saved. Attending church is not something you have to do, it's something you should want to do. Are you wondering where God is in your life? Has it been awhile since you've felt God?|
