|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.

|Righteousness (Part 1)|
|Romans 10:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you ask anybody if they would go to Heaven, most would say yes that they would. Most are not even saved but think they're good enough to get into Heaven. The prayer should be for those that are lost to be saved. In order for soul to be saved it must know that it's lost. We live in a culture that think they are moral and good and do not think they need God. Prov 30:12 does this not sound like we are living in this generation? Visiting an altar does not make one saved. Church attendance will not make one saved.
It's very important that you look at yourself in the mirror and make sure that your sins are taken care of with God. Self is usually at the heart of the sin. Those that go around establishing how righteous they are, are like white sepulchers. The outsides look and seem beautiful but on the inside they are full of death, rotting flesh and bones. Self righteousness is for what? What does it gain you to be self righteous? We are born into a self righteous body that we all struggle with. If you don't think there is a problem then that's one of your problems. Simply looking at church attendance and comparing the numbers for each service will quickly explain a self righteous attitude they people do not need to worship or repent. 2 Cor 10:12 comparing us to the dung, waste of cattle - farmers look at the waste in order to make sure they are healthy and eating correctly. In the end, it's still dung, waste. One pile of dung is just the same as another pile of dung just the same as one person is just a human the same as the next.

|The Will of God|
|Romans 8:26-28 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Have you ever been in a place where you didn't know what to do?
Things that are known of the will of God, everything that's inside the Bible is His will. Gal 1:14; Jesus Christ gave Himself for our sins. It wasn't something that just happened. It's not Gods will that anyone should die lost. It's a personal choice when God calls that Salvation is excepted. 1 Thes; it's Gods will that we all to be holy. We should try to live sinless at all times. 1 Thes 5:13; we should also give thanks to God no matter what happens. Those are things that are known about Gods will. One must read and study Gods Word in order to know what His will is for our lives.
Just as we know what His will is, there are also things we don't know. Don't we beat ourselves up over doing the right things? Most all people don't want to do the wrong things. Now the devil likes to confuse and he can come to us and whisper to us and we are fooled into thinking it was God. This is why we are to try the spirits. Rom 8:26 is clear stating that we usually don't know what to do. Christ Himself wrestled with it in the garden making sure He was to follow thru with His sacrifice, His crucifixion. So how do we know we are doing the right thing, the Spirit of God dwells inside those that are saved and it makes intercession for those. This is the direct connection to doing the right things. Now if you've got sin in your heart then you're going to have a really hard time hearing and knowing what God says to you. This is because sin blocks out Gods communication because He can't help over the sin. Rom 8:27 this speaks about the shepherding of Jesus Christ searching out the heart and knowing the mind and whether it's truly yearning for God. If the mind of the spirit yearns for God then He makes intercession in our behalf to God His father. Rom 8:28 clearly states that ALL things work together for those that love God. The variable is that if we love the world or some of it then you're not 100% in love with God. That has always been the problem with us as humans. We should love Him more than anything else and if we do, nothing else will matter because it will ALL be taken care of.
This all sounds simple but the devil comes against us and causes us to doubt and fear. This happens because he wants to destroy us all. The little things are usually what we struggle with but put your focus on God and your relationship with Him.

|Sin, the Separator|
|Jonah 1:1-2:10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Sin will take you further than you ever wanted to go before you'll realize it. Jonah was told to spread Gods word but he refused to. Just in our own churches, many feel that it's only the pastors job to spread His word. Plain and simple we just don't want God to show up and show off. We are afraid of what God might do. We should all be more like the men in the upper room, expecting God to show up and do wonderful things!
One can try to hide from God but He always knows where you are and what you thinking. If your a saved person then you will answer for your sinful actions. God will get your attention in some way, whatever it takes. If you're a Christian and make he choice to live a sinful life, you will run away from God. Once you're on the run it will feel as if you're living out Hell on earth.
