|Stopping The Voices|
|Psalm 40:1-4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|David endured physical afflictions and he often prayed about them. Also, he prayed for his enemies. Just as he, discouragement affects us all and it all begins in our minds.
God can hear you as long as you have repented and hold no inequity in our hearts. If God granted every prayer we asked Him instantly then He would surely be our spare tire. But God makes us wait thru patience.
Our mind is liken to a horrible pit full of never ending noise. We can not stop it no matter what we do and try. Always thinking, always listening, always wondering and doubting. The miry clay being depression that our mind will usually begin to think about if we don't put our minds at ease thru Christ. People today are screaming to be rescued from their own minds.
The clearest your mind will ever be is when you allow God to work in your mind. Prayer can bring clarity and remove the doubt in our minds. Not only will God clear your mind and ease it but He will also place you on something solid that you DO know.
How many have things are rolling around in your mind that you can't get rid of? A grudge against someone? Worried about a sickness? Stressed about a lived one?
For a child of God we are not a victim but a victor! We choose everyday which one you want to be.

|Mark 9:42-48 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Baptist preachers are known for preaching about Hell, often. The truth is, Jesus preached on hell often as well. There is a reason we must be saved, there is something that we are saved from. To be born again one must become as a simple minded child. One should not offend a saved child. People live as if there is no end to their life yet everyone WILL die, no one will live forever here on this earth. What does Hell look like? Luke 16 describes a man that went to Hell and what he experienced there. Before Christ those that died believing in God went to a place called Paradise. Those that died with unbelief of God went to a place called Hell. Hell is a place of multiple torments. Fire that is unending that burns nonstop whatever it touches. The worm or mind of a person that will never die will forever think of those times of repentance. The ability to look into Heaven only to know you will never be able to be there because of your choice to deny Christ. There will be screams and crying from deep within Hell. Teeth that bite and tear at the flesh, never stopping. There are many that are already on their way to Hell, right now! If you're lost, you're going to Hell. The only thing that saves you from going to Hell is Jesus Christ with His salvation. One MUST believe in Jesus Christ in order to be saved and go to Heaven. God never said He wanted you to go to Hell but instead, Heaven. Another torment of Hell is knowing your family members and friends are on their way to Hell as well and not being able to stop them. How could you want to go to Hell? A place that's better than Paradise is called Heaven which is where all the saved, born again believer are headed. Once your eyes close for the last time they will then open in Heaven. Jesus sits on the right side of God in Heaven where there is NO sadness or regrets. Heaven is the permanent place that was created by Jesus after His crucifixion. The Lake of Fire is the permanent place of Hell after Jesus come again. Don't let your permanent location be Hell. If God didn't love you then He wouldn't have sent Jesus, His Only son, to die in your place.|

|Get the Good Stuff|
|Hebrews 9:1-15 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|Jesus prayed in the garden for His fathers will to be done that if there was another way that it be done. God knew that it would take His son to remove the sins of the world therefore there was no other way. God gave the best He had for the sins of the world. Many people are proud of their sins and make them something of importance. When Jesus prayed in the garden He prayed that the cup be passed, so what was in the cup? Sin... He knew that he would have to take on and drink in the sin. The sin would become Him just as when we take of the wine. The sin also has a savor, a bitterness. We know that when Christ died on the cross that He drunk the entire cup of sin and took the bitter sting of death. Jesus, in the garden, knew what a He was about to go thru and therefore was in agony. He was under so much stress that He began to sweat blood. Jesus knew with every step of the way what was going on. The "court" was completely against Him and so was the people. Jesus was human but He was also God. His flesh was just that, flesh, it was weak but His spirit was strong and kept His flesh moving. With each step He took and each whip He withstood, He was lifting the sin filled cup closer and closer to His lips. Since the beginning of time the altar had cried out for a sacrifice. Adam and Eve had a sacrifice made for them in order to cover their nakedness. Lambs and doves were used as sacrifices for the sins of many in the temples. When Jesus gave a his life as a living sacrifice for everyone's sins, the altar was finally satisfied and it no longer cries out. One of the cries from the cross was, why did God turn away from Jesus? Sin will separate you from God. When Jesus took our sins upon Himself, the sin made a Him feel as if He was separated from God. Just as a Christian sins they feel a separation from God and must repent to get close to God again.|

|It's About a Choice|
|Deuteronomy 30:15-20 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Many make Salvation a difficult thing. In the beginning God made Adam and Eve to have their own choice. There is nothing that you can do to separate you from the love of God. It's not difficult to make a decision, do you want life or death? God didn't make Adam or Eve love Him. He didn't make Moses to love Him, therefore He's not going to make you love Him either. You have a choice, He will not make you to be saved. The greatest of joys is to serve someone else. Have you made up your mind on who you will serve? One can't serve two gods, you will either love one and hate the other. No one is made to love God, it's a freedom that we all have whether we love Him. By default we are going to hell because we must choose God. It's an eternal choice that must be made once the invitation has been received because we don't know if we will take another breath. God wants you to choose Him because He loves you but in the end, it's completely up to you. Some keep going the wrong direction but expect different results. The table has been set full, the invitations have gone out, you're starving to death but, you just sit and watch other feast on the goodness of God. You can starve yourself to death. Have you made up your mind? Who are you going to serve? That simple choice will change you forever.|

|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.|
