|Wash-Up Before Worship|
|Leviticus 16:23-25 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
|Before you can worship, you must repent. When you sin against God then you've trespassed against Him therefore you will not feel from Him.
Animals being sacrificed for the sins, blood flowing from the animals where their bodies were drained. God required afterwards that the priest MUST change their clothes and cleanse himself completely. The priest had to do this before he could worship God.
Some people think that sin is glamorous. They live their life as if nothing matters. In the end, their sin will be to their demise. Gal 3:27, Eph 4:22-24, 2 Cor 5:27 one has to repent in order to be one with Christ. Before one can be saved, God has to remove the sins, be forgiven.
Cor 15 there is a day coming that the mortal body will be removed before we can have a heavenly body. A heavenly body where we won't need to rest, feed or take care of any longer.
Most do not like to repent, saying sorry, admitting they've done something wrong. In order to have life with Christ, then you've got to let go of the old and grab the new.

|The Menorah; The Importance Of Light In The Darkness|
|Exodus 25:31-40 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Every day the priest would enter into the Holy Place. The table of show bread was ate and the oil and wicks were trimmed. The lamp was representing the tree of life and even Jesus referred to Himself as the vine and branches. Buds represent something is about to happen. A talent of gold is about 75 pounds cost in todays time, $1.25 million. The math on the lamp total is seven, a perfect number for the branches. In order to get into the Holiest of Holies there must be some light. Natural light was not in the Holy Place therefore there had to be a source of light created.
The oil had to be pure oil and had to be beaten, not pressed. Just as Jesus wasn't pressed but He was beaten to make us pure. God could have made the the lamps to never burn out but He required new oil every morning. Just as us, we need fueled every day by Jesus.
Knops being buds, something that had not yet bloomed. At some point a bud will form a flower, then will form a fruit.
Once you're saved, called out of the darkness, a light will forever shine the path to righteousness. Natural light can not illuminate the Word of God, it can not get one to God. Except the light of God draw one, that is the only way. So until you're lost you can't be saved, until you're sick you can't be healed. God is the only one that knows the path because He sees beyond what we can ever seen. While Jesus was in the world He was the light of the world. BUT, He left and and filled us the saved with His light. Without Him leaving there would have been no way for the light to be left inside Christians. Back before Jesus came to earth times were truly dark but when Jesus fulfilled the plan of salvation, He left a light for us to always have. His word is the brightest light that could ever be. In Heaven there is no need for a sun because God Himself is the light that shines. His light shines so bright that there are no shadows in Heaven.
There are times when we will be in dark places. We can not fight them with the flesh but with the spiritual darts provided by Gods Word.

|Do You Believe?|
|John 11:20-26 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We all have an appointed time that we ALL will not pass and that's death. John 3 John speaks of being born again. We usually get caught up in things here that usually do not matter but we never think about the eternity. It's really easy to say, I know who Jesus is. Rom 10:9 One must truly KNOW Jesus in order to know Him. Ask most anyone and they'll claim that there a Christian but there is usually no evidence. People have all kinds of testimonies but there is one thing that should take place and that's Jesus calling your name. One can't hear Jesus until Jesus opens your heart and allows you to know that you're lost. God is not the author of confusion and if you're struggling with possibly being saved, seek God and ask Him about your salvation. We are all going to face death, sickness and struggles. Many times we make salvation hard but it's man that makes it difficult. The simplicity of salvation just believing in Jesus Christ. John 16:29-33 Greater is Who is in you than that, that is in the world. But in order to have Him, you must be born again. Mat 15:13-17 Who do you say who Jesus is Monday thru Saturday? It's life or death! Do you truly KNOW Jesus?|

|Headed Back to the Pig Pen|
|Matthew 12:22-35 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What is the blasphemy of the Holy Ghost? Any and all sins can and will be forgiven by God if but only asked for the forgiveness. There's no big or little sin. Christ died for those that we claim is our enemies. So what is the sin that separates you from Jesus Christ? It's the one that you've never asked forgiveness for. How many religions are there in the world today? The religion doesn't matter because there is only two types of people, the lost and the saved. Your either with God or against him. We see churches pop up and then fall. We see Christians grow and do great things and then fall. In both cases the fall is due to a simple sin that was never forgiven or taken care of. How can a Christian serve a god that sends people to hell? The fact is, the question is wrong, God doesn't send them to hell, the person made a choice that hell is where they wanted to be by denying God. Isaiah 59:1-2 Sins are a separators between you and Jesus. Praying and asking God for forgiveness and then turning around and picking them right back up is choosing to live in it. We ALL need to make a choice. First, you had to make a choice whether you'll have God as your Lord and Savior. The next choice is to follow Christ and to serve Him completely.|

|He's Always There|
|Romans 1:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Some say they can't live right because they feel they fail constantly. Most want to run to the preacher because they want him to like them and be accepted. No one has done anything to deserve salvation. No amount of works or money will bring salvation. If one can't earn salvation then one can't do anything to lose salvation. Salvation isn't based upon ourselves, it's based upon Christ washing you're sins away. Genesis 17:5 We have a God that is ALL. He's not limited by anything or anyone. God is looking for obedience and your limits He can overcome. If God says He will never leave you, what does that really mean to you? Romans 8:28 He is always working. We should all learn how to say, yes Lord, and do it every time He speaks to us. Not only Abraham pleasing to God through his obedience but Enoch and Noah. If you think your life is bad right now, stop and think about how your life would be if there was no Jesus. James 1:12, Rev 2:8 We all deserve to be sitting in jail for some sin or another but God came to forgive through obedience.|
