|2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Reconciliation is what God came to do. There is but one thing that separates God from us and that's sin. We have offended God with our actions, rebellion and our words. It happened in the Garden of Eden where we know that man would sin and break the fellowship with God. People think they have that fellowship by their life being good but that is a lie from the devil. The meaning of reconciliation is the filling the gap between God and man. God took the first step in fixing the gap, not man. There is nothing that God can't reconcile. In most all cases when someone is saved, they are not looking for God, in fact God came looking for them.
There is often a mediator during a reconciliation. 1 Tim 2:5-6, Act 4:12 There had to be someone to stand your case. Christ being the mediator stands between your sin and God and claims your case into salvation. There is a method to the mediation as well and that's the taking of the sin thru death, a sacrifice. Once the sin took place in the Garden of Eden, man never walked with God again until the mediator came. Once the mediator came then we now are able to walk with God. God can't look upon sin but how does He look upon a saved sinner? He looks thru the blood of His son Jesus Christ.
Two goats were taken as a sacrifice. One was to be used as a scapegoat and was to have the sin cast upon it and released. The other was to be sacrificed because blood must be shed.
We don't deserve to be saved because we are full of sin. But not only is there a method but there is also a ministry to being reconciled. The ministry is not only for the preachers but to ALL of those that have been reconciled, saved. A saved persons testimony is the greatest ministry there is. It's a responsibility that all that's been saved has and it's the great commission. To go out into the world and tell them about Jesus Christ no matter where they are.
The only thing that keeps you from God is your unbelief. Most feel that God could never love a person like themselves. But God came to them, they didn't go looking for God therefore He comes because He loves them.

|Just In Spite Of|
|Romans 7:18-8:8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There will be times in a Christians life when the devil will throw your past in your face. You're flesh craves the bad things, what the devil gives and reminds. A weapon that can be used to fight the devil against your past is that God has cast your past sinful life as far as the east is from the west. Satan can not condemn you of something that Christ has removed. A saved person can not stay in sin. They may linger in sin but, in the end a decision must be made. Those that are lost walk in sin and will not and can not please God. The best part of it all, 1 John 2:1-2 you will never walk alone if you're saved. Attending church is not something you have to do, it's something you should want to do. Are you wondering where God is in your life? Has it been awhile since you've felt God?|

|Itching Ears & Counterfeit Money (Part 1)|
|2 Peter 2:1-3 (Part of the 2 Peter 2 series).|
|Whether you are accepting or not to the Word, it will always go out. We should always be aware that man should not be listened to over God. People have always wanted an easy solution. There is not another gospel other than that of Jesus Christ. We should stand and be faithful to the truth of God. We are living in a world where people look at the truth as an infringement on their lives. Anyone can look at the world and see that their was a designer. People do not like God because it clashes with their lifestyle. People say they want the truth but they really don't, they only want what they want, something that tickles their ears. There will be consequences to avoiding God's Word. Personal opinions and agendas simply do not matter when it comes to God's. God has not changed and will not change. Living amongst us today are also false prophets that have false motives, messages and beliefs. There have always been and always will be those that want to teach false teaching. Those are the enemies of God and they can not be battled with our flesh but only in prayer. What motivates false teachers is greed. God's will is that no one should parish in the end. Those that are unlearned in Gods Word and they will be preyed upon by the false teachers. God has never promised wealth, health and prosperity. Not only are there false teachers but there teaching are also false. Anything that doesn't declare that God is the only god then it's a false message. Unbelief is the only thing that will keep anyone out of heaven. The false teachers also have false motives. Truth can be used as a disguise for a lie. How many people are tricked by someone saying it's ok because this scripture says one thing so it must be ok. We don't have to know all the lies, only the truth. To find counterfeit money one doesn't study the counterfeiters, they study the real money. The true definition of truth means that there can be only one truth. All of the others are false. By definition God is love but God has also declared what is a sin and He hates sin. God has not changed His mind on what is sin. Are we living in a time such as these? In the end we will al be judged, not by someone else but by God's Word the Holy Bible. Buddha can't help you, Mary can't help you, Money won't buy your way in, Grandparents salvation or church going won't help, Church attendance won't help, Allah won't help, etc. Only the truth, Jesus Christ, living God will help you on judgement.|

|Stoking the Fire|
|Luke 9:51-62 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Jesus didn't come to earth to condemn but to save the world. We should be willing and able to do what God asks us to do. Nothing is as important as the will of God. God told us to go and He would supply. If we do as He has said, He will bless. We must be obedient. We should show love always towards everyone. You may think that God doesn't have the same power as the biblical day, but you are badly mistaken. Gods mercy is what keeps His wrath under control.|

|Genesis 3:17-24 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Man can not get rid of or remove the curse of sin. Sin is what brought forth the curse. Man can not judge nor condemn. Put yourself on both sides of a balancing scale. Now think of the center point of the scale. It must be perfectly in the center. John 6:35-40 From the beginning, God gave man power over the devil through Jesus. The Word of God exposes sin so that we may rid ourselves of it. The devil told a lie in the beginning and he's still telling them today. There is life after the grave.|
