|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.|

|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.

|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|Don't Drink the Kool-Aid|
|Genesis 3:1-9 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The devil wants to confuse you. John 8:44 The devil is a liar. The devil wants you to die, be destroyed. We have a simple requirement from God and that is to be born again. That requirement must be made or we will all die and open our eyes in hell. Many live under a distorted truth. The devil doesn't show you his lies in black and white. There is nothing else that can save you from death. Anyone can make what they want from Gods Word but that doesn't make it different. God has never changed His Word for anyone. God never said you can do it on your own terms. How do you know if you're being lied to by the devil? Know the truth. In the flesh we desire to be in the world. 1 John 2:16 God is greater than the flesh. Don't allow the devil in your life. If you allow him in your life one small time, he will be in it in a big time. There will be a day when your eyes will be opened and you will see the sin in your life. You are accountable to your sin. Every time God comes to us we often sew ourselves fig leaves to cover our sin. Stop making excuses for your sins and repent. Titus 2:11 He will visit with ALL at some point. You can't hide from God. God is not shocked by your sin or put off by it. He's not fooled by your "fig leaves".|

|Christ Is All|
|Colossians 3:1-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Why are you not doing what God told you to do? We are always dragged down by someone else's excuses. No one makes you go to church. If you're not motivated to work for God by loving God, then it can't be done. If you're lost then you are dead and the dead can't do anything. So why do you go to church? Christ is all, All What? God is all wisdom. Have you ever been in a place that you had no idea what to do? If you want wisdom, just ask God for it. Eph 1:7-8 God isn't surprised by your condition. Stop trying to do it yourself! Wisdom is good for us. God knows everything from the now and forever to come. God is all grace. Grace is an umbrella. 1 Pet 5:10, 2 Cor 9:8 Grace is the one thing that shadows all of Gods people and we were all undeserving of it. God is all joy and peace. People everywhere are searching for joy and peace. Rom 15:13 What is it that drives a person to find joy and peace? There is nothing better in this world than peace. Peace can't be created in the mind. You must first have peace in your soul before you can have joy in your life.|
