|Who's Side Are You On?|
|Joshua 2:1-24 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There is a time coming where faith will become real. Being born again is a choice granted by God. When you decide by faith that you want to be saved and God saves you, He makes a promise that He will save your household, however, your household must also make the same choice as you did. Once you're saved you become and influence to the rest of your household. God gave us all a true token to prove that He's coming back and that's His blood and Holy Spirit. Therefore whether you die or Jesus comes back, He will take what is His and if you've got His token, you'll go with Him. Just as Rahab had a Scarlett rope, a thread that would save her life, we as Christians have a scarlet rope that binds us all together and it's the blood of Christ. Josh 6:25 she lost all of her city but she became a part of a much larger family, the family of God. Mat 1:5 the linage of Christ was laid out and most of the time women were never mentioned except here when Rahab is listed as being a direct decedent to Christ. Rahab was the great, great grandmother of King David.|

|Righteousness (Part 2)|
|Romans 10:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Deut 30 references Rom 10:5. One must complete the law in its entirety. No one has been able to keep the law perfectly therefore we are guilty. The works of the flesh will not be accepted as a payment into Heaven. Jesus Christ would have never been sent as a sacrifice if there was another way into Heaven. Do you think you're a good person? If you're trying to get into Heaven by any other way but by Jesus Christ then you're creating a self righteous religion that will get you into Hell. There is a way that seems right but it WILL lead to death, Hell. How many people go to the doctor if they are well? Likewise, how many people will go to Jesus when everything seems to be going good? Most people judge their relationship with Christ by watching others. If that person lives just as good as they do then everything just be ok.
Perfection is the only thing that will go to Heaven. There is not a single person that has mastered perfection. What makes a person perfect is by accepting Christ as their savior. Who in their right mind would say that they would rather go to Hell than to Heaven? Christ has already done everything He can to allow you to go to Heaven.
So how do you get saved? There is one thing required and that's to believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins, Rom 10:9-10;13.

|The Emblem of Deliverance and the Provider|
|Exodus 17:8-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Shepherds usually had a staff, a stick. Exodus 3:4 tells a story of Moses experiencing a bush that was on fire but wasn't consumed by it. The burning bush being God told Moses to take his shoes off because he was on holy ground. Just today, we should condition ourselves for the presence of God.
Thinking about the staff of Moses, God used this staff as a proof. Exodus 4 explains that this staff was the rod of God. This rod was powerful tool of God that was used as the beginning of the plaques, turned into a snake that ate the magicians tricks. The rod of God was also used to split the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross on dry ground. It was also used to close the Red Sea. It was used to strike a rock for water to burst forth in order to water the Israelites cattle and themselves. The rod of God was held up above Moses' head and as long as it was, the Israelites people were able to prevail against the army of Amalek.
Now we often think we ourselves can do anything. The truth is that we can't do anything of ourselves. The rod was a symbol of the future to come, Jesus Christ. We can't do anything without Jesus Christ. The rod, just a Christ, is used as deliverance in any time of need. We have an emblem that we can hold high which is the cross. The reason one goes to Hell is because they reject Christ as Gods only son and Him being crucified and raised again for our sins.
The rod was also a provider as it provided safety and water. Safety from Pharos and the Amalek armies. Provider of the water when the rock was struck. In our arrogance we often think we can provide and to give safety. When the bills are due and they become paid. When the cupboard is barren but the food comes in. Satan is a coward and always strikes from the back. When he begins to attack Jesus comes from the front and chases the enemy away. Just in today's time we should help out each other and lift them up, hold the up in order to fight against the devil. We should also lift Jesus Christ up for all to see. The purpose of the church is to lift up Jesus Christ and if we can do that the job will get done.

|Where Is Your Faith? (Part 2)|
|Daniel 3:16-30 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There are things about this world that it's not for God. There are those today that are told to deny their God and worship another God and if they don't death comes to them quickly. One shouldn't be a fool to those things in this world because we have been warned of those tests. One should make their mind up right now in whom they are going to serve no matter the circumstance. Just as the three men in Dan 3:16-30, they knew what was coming because they could watch the man made god being built. What kind of faith does it take to stand against a false god? The size of the faith is not the issue, it's the God behind it.
They were convinced, confidence and committed. They were also respectful in their attitude. Three were put in the furnace but four was seen. When they were called back out, three came out leaving the fourth one in the fire. In the time of your troubles, fiery times, God will be with you.
The world wants nothing to do with God . They try every way possible to remove Him each and every day. The bible is not just for Sunday's, it's also not just emergencies. Owners manuals are given out in order to know how to operate things just as the bible was given to know how to live and worship God.

|Where Is Your Faith? (Part 1)|
|Luke 8:22-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|They were going over the Word of God. His word is the final say. Do you believe that the Word of God is of God and should be kept. Not one church going person will say that the bible is not Gods word and yet most don't follow it as truth. The bible is one of the promises of God given to all. It's not a novel or history book but Gods word.
Where is your faith?
He has given you promises and yet when the storms come, you're not ready. Worry which is from Satan comes into our lives, we let it control us besides having the faith in the Word of God. Jesus no longer sleeps because He is in a new form. Always there, always waiting, always listening. How many times have you looked at the storm in your life and realized that you're in jeopardy? When your world turns upside down there will be times when Gods word will be the last thing on your mind. Just as in the boat with the disciples, Jesus wasn't worried because he was asleep try the terrible storm. Romans 8:28 God wasn't worried then and He's not worried now. God how's your finances, He knows where it comes from and knows where it going. But, just as a person sows, so shall they reap. If your foolish with your finances you shall reap foolishness.
Where's your faith?
You may say that you're a child of God and nothing bad will come your way. This is a lie from Satan. Satan tries everyone and more so to a Christian because he wants them to stumble to keep others from being saved. Trials will come and they will come more frequently for a Christian. During the storms in life one usually is more worried about the storm than they are with learning and the peace. Once one realizes that the storm can't be controlled by oneself and that God is in full control, peace will come. Nothing in this world that could ever come against us is covered in His word.
Where is your faith?
The reason one finds themselves in much jeopardy is because they don't study. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. How many open you bible when you're NOT in a church house? Oh yea of little faith... why such small faith, because one doesn't know what the truth says when a trial comes.
Where is your faith?
If your faith is in God, the Word, then it's unstoppable, unmovable. Satan can't touch you as long as you're one of Gods.
