Getting Back To Basics
2 Timothy 3:10-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
We've all been called into the ministry whether it be a preacher to a song leader to a praying individual. All scripture is given by the inspiration of God. The end of all arguments starts and ends with the Word of God. We hear a lot about doctrine right now. We label everything from churches to books and hymnals. The first label that should be applied is, Christian. If you say that the spirit witnessed with you, it doesn't matter what you say if it doesn't line up with the Word of God. Some will say that the bible is hard to read, understand. That statement is true but we do not read the Sunday paper, it's an instruction manual from God Himself. All scripture is of God, not just the pieces that we like and then dismiss the parts that we don't like. Some doctrines will tell you that as long as you believe and follow God then you'll be blessed with all these wonderful things. However, the bible clearly states in 2 Tim 3:12 that if you live for Christ you will go thru problems, persecution. We should study the Word daily, reading it, meditating on it and memorizing it. People are looking for answers all over the place, so we should have an answer for them from God to help them. Many folks that's been saved for many years are still babes, still on the milk when it comes to their spiritual growth. At times when we study and read the bible the things that we read might hurt us like getting a spanked. Those things do hurt and they are there for reproof and not to ignore. During readIng the bible it will bring us to correction at times. Once correction is made we should repent. Your Sunday school teacher is probably a hypocrite just like the rest of us but that doesn't make it right. We will all fail at some point and tell someone to live this way but we will live the opposite. The devil will come between Christians and try to cause conflict with anything and it seems that a lot of it currently is about doctrine. In the end, the doctrine is good but Jesus is more important. The focus should be about Jesus and Him crucified. We get caught up in the happiness of the world and fail to see the goodness of the end reward.

The Wiles of the Devil
Ephesians 6:10-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Satan is a created being and is no different than the angels in heaven. Satan has many tactics that he uses on the children of God on a daily basis. The thief has come to steal, kill and destroy. The thief is the devil and the wicked spirits that serve him. Their are enough to spread across the world. The devil does not have free rein of a christian because we are protected by the shield of God. John 10:10, 2 Cor 2:11, Eph 6:16, 1 Peter 5:8 We truly have an enemy and we can not stand in the flesh to fight him. It takes something greater than the flesh to fight him because he is in the sprint therefore must be fought in the spirit. He is not omnipresent but has many demons that do his handy-work. This world currently is the devils domain until Jesus comes back. The very thing that we live in, the flesh, wants to live in the world because of it’s lust. Nothing has changed since Adam and Eve because he is still deceiving and lying to people everyday. What a terrifying thing to be able to see with our eyes the spiritual warfare that goes on all around us. If we are saved then we are protected by Gods great hand and satan can not get to us unless God allows it. When Jesus died, He died for ALL but many will not submit to Him. If you’re playing with the devil he will take you further than you ever thought you would go quicker than you ever thought. When you light a match and place that flame under your hand, you will pull your hand back because there is a nerve that warns you of danger. Just as that nerve warns you, God also warns you of the dangers of the devil. Satan wants to destroy your testimony if you’re saved. Satan will use anything he can to tear you down. He will use religion itself to bring you down. If you are saved then you’re going to heaven but that doesn’t mean that if you play with the devil that he will keep people around you lost and going into hell. We hear it everyday, pastors having affairs because satan laid a woman in their lives. We as humans are ignorant to satan’s lies and deceptions.

Privileged Beyond... (Part 3)
1 John 3:1-2 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
We have been made His children. To understand that we must go back to know where we've come from. Have you ever thought about the love of God that would cause Him to love us? What does it mean to live without God? Think about how it would be to grow up with no parent that loved you. What if you were a child of an earthly king? Think about an orphan child and how they want to be loved. They do not want toys or other earthly wants. They simply want parents that love them like their own. Gal 4:4-5 Only thru the blood of Jesus Christ is how one can be adopted by God. A Jew lives for their birthright tying to make sure they can be traced back to Abraham. Your linage will not get you to heaven or make you any closer to God. Many orphans of this world can't wait to be out on their own but, they always have it in the back of their mind that they were never loved. Romans 8:14-15 The adoption paperwork once signed is sealed and can never be changed. Gal 4:7; Rom 8:17 Not only do we have the Spirit to prove to us but we are heirs. Have you even considered where you were when He came to you and asked you to become His child? What could be the reason that God would adopt us? What's your purpose? Why are you here? Phil 2:13-15 The purpose is that we are to bare much fruit for Christ. We are to shine in this dark time that we live in. We've been called out from amongst the darkness and into the light.

Privileged Beyond... (Part 1)
Hebrews 10:19-21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
One of the greatest privileges of being a Christian is that we can come before Him. Many others have idols they bow down to but they are only idols and nothing more. Prior to the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ, animals were given as a blood sacrifice and only the priest could go before God in the temple. After Christ gave His life for our sins as the ultimate sacrifice then we can now go before God boldly. When the veil was opened not only did it allow anyone to look in and walk around, it opened the door for God to be let for the rest of the world, everyone. God was preparing a new way for sinners to be saved and when Jesus was crucified the new way was complete. It's difficult to explain how God presence can engulf a believer in any place at any time. It's hard to comprehend that God is always around and is always in our presence. Our first privilege is that God would allows us to be in His presence. God sent Himself as a man to earth to live as a man, feel pain as a man, die as a man and to take upon Himself every sin that would ever be committed. The difference between God and all of those other gods is that God is alive. Our other privilege as a Christian is that we have a mediator that is always there and does not require a blood sacrifice each time we go to the God.

What Do You Do With Christ?
Matthew 11:20-24 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Are you affected by Christ, the Word of God? Do you actively ask folks if they've been saved? Our world that we live in today is just as sinful as it was in Sodom's time. Sin is sin no matter the type whether it be murder, homosexuality or a lie. Conflict is a problem that causes us to see for a remedy or a solution. Make sure you're living your serving God and doing His will. We don't have to be a rich person, works do not help and who you're related to in order to be saved. Never forget who saved you. Never forget where you were pulled from and saved from. We know that the world is quickly falling away from Christ but don't be discouraged. We also know that this has to happen prior to the second coming of Christ. It also means that we as Christians should not stop working for Christ. We should not look at others and feel as if they get away with everything. God will judge them just the same as you. If you think that you are only hurting yourself or its my life, you're wrong. Your body is a temple and God lives inside the temple therefore you're destroying God Himself. Jesus did die for everyone but not for all, only the ones that would accept Him as their personal savior. America today has so many idols that they quickly become bored. Children quickly become bored when they obviously have many, many things to do. Do you feel like you can't share your salvation? That lost person that you hate is so loved by Christ. The least you could do for that person is to share Jesus Christ with them. Jesus is a conflict and always has been.
