|One Step Doesn't Make a Journey|
|Acts 2:41-42 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|It takes one step to start the journey. There is not one person that knows for how long they are going to live. So how are you going to live those steps? What matters is the dash between your birth date and death date. We have no choice of when we are born and likewise our death. Have we not wasted years of our lives on junk. God will examine our journey and the junk will all be burnt. If you're waiting for the Spirit of God to show up before you began to worship, if you're saved then the Spirit lives inside you. We all have our own minds to make up whether we serve God or not. No one else can serve God for you. If you have children in your life then they are always watching you which means you are constantly teaching them. So what are you teaching those children about church, God? God knows why you come to church and it's just as bad to attend church unwilling and hindering His word than to simply lay out. If you've been saved then you've been purchased therefore you no longer own yourself, you live for Him now. Now your life matters when it comes to God. It's not about just getting into Heaven. Does Wednesday matter? What about Tuesday? When does it become okay to not live for God? Who's choice was it to join the church? What happened then when you made the choice to not follow Gods Word about not failing to assemble themselves together in the church service?
The Primitive Baptist association are made up of several churches and was established back in 1802. Associations of churches are not usual but ours has been going on for over 200 years. If some people do not take an interest into the association, it will dissolve. Now the association can NOT get one into Heaven but there are some things that are important. Most of the pastors of NPPBC were not from NPPBC, they were from other churches.

|John 3:16-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Could you take a beating like Christ did for your children or someone you love dearly? Could you really? Flesh being torn from your body and never make a sound.
Repeating a prayer from anyone doesn't make one saved. If there is no pull, knock on your hearts door from Jesus then you can't be saved. Jesus must invite one first before you're lost, convicted of sin and then a choice is made to be saved or answer His invitation.
No one is promised another second to live. Your next step might not be made. Your next breath may not come. Are you prepared to meet God? Once you've been saved, you'll not need to be saved again. Just as the woman at the well, Jesus gave her salvation therefore she would never thirst again.
We as parents should be teaching in a godly way always pointing them back up to God. God will never leave them and God will always be there when we can't. We will always fail no matter how hard we try. Christ is always there and will never forsake His children.
God doesn't prepare a place for you and your spouse, you and your friend. God said He is preparing a place for YOU, singular person, just for you. Therefore the choice is up to you if you want that place. No other person can make that choice for you.

|The Mercy Seat of God|
|Hebrews 9:3-5 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Ark of the Covenant
Inside the Ark
The tabernacle and its contents were all directing to something better to come. Don't confuse the burning incense smoke with the mercy seat of God. The burning incense was the prayers of the people interceding to God.
The ark was to contain particular items, a remnant of His promise. It was to be built a particular size and to have a lid, two cherubs and handles in order to carry it. It contained three items, mana. Mana was tried to be stored but it would spoil however this mana was to be stored without it spoiling. Just as today, God has only promised the hour in which you live and nothing more. The also contained a rod, a stick that was cut from a tree. This stick was dead but God made it to bloom showing that He could make something dead to be raised to life. A miracle that only God can perform. Christ has come to save us all from an eternity of death. The third and final item was the Ten Commandments, the Word of God.
Some people believe that if they found the Ark then they would have all the power in the world. However, the Ark is of no more once Jesus made a new way. Crossing the Jordan, the Ark held the water back. Marching around the walls of Jericho the Ark was there and thru the power of the Ark, the walls fell. At one point the Philistines stole the Ark and placed it in their "god's" temple but the next day the Ark destroyed their god. People could not touch the Ark just in the story of when the Ark was about to fall and someone stopped it by touching it and they were slain dead. Even though there was power in the Ark of the Covenant, there is much more power in God's Word, the bible. The bible contains all of the promises of God and His eternal life.
So what's so important about the box, the Ark? We know it's about the covenant or His promise but what else? It's His mercy seat, it's all about mercy. God provides mercy in that very time of need that we ALL can go to Him with our needs of mercy. Romans 3:23 God didn't owe us anything for we had no right to God. But, He has called to us because He loves us.

|Beyond the Veil|
|Leviticus 16:5-22 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Inside the Holy Place
Blood had to be offered before the mercy seat. No one was sinless so the high priest had to cleanse himself then his household, then he could cleanse the people. Only then, offer the sin offering was able to enter the holy of holies to offer it to mercy seat before God.
Jesus our high priest didn't have to offer any blood for himself. Being sinless, His blood was only for us. Jesus' blood cleansed past, present and future sins for all people. The blood of the bullock and goats only paid for past sins.
Because Christ's blood is sufficient for all atonement no matter what we do, we can't lose our atonement. The sacrifice of Jesus was better than any goats blood.
There is a fountain of blood that flows from Emmanuel's veins.
Jesus' blood covers like a flood. We're plunged from head to feet and covered past, present and future, never can be lost.
The second goat was the escape goat. Christ was both our sacrifice and our escape goat.

|Romans 6:1-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Don't allow your old bones to run your life. The foot of the cross is always level. The devil usually comes with you with the same things over and over again. John 10:10 tells us that Satan is all about destruction. Can you recognized the grace of God? Psa 103:8; 12-14 has it ever crossed your mind what might have been if Jesus hadn't come into your life when He did? Salvation is not a license to sin. We should protect our witness from Satan. Grace came because Jesus knew us therefore we must be born again. No matter how old you are in Christ, you should still have a conviction of sin. We as Christians should be in constant pursuit of perfection. John 16:7-11 there is no amount of parental push that could convict one of their sins. Only God can convict one of their sins as God knows the heart. The Holy Spirit must be at work before one can be saved. John 16:9 unbelief is the main culprit and the most basic of sins. James 4:7 will always make the Devil mad. Eph 4:21-32 always speak the truth. We should never let the day end being mad at someone. Theft should never be a part of a Christians life. A Christian should work in order to receive for the giving to others in need.|
