|Near The Cross|
|Luke 9:23 (Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
How near are you to the cross? God doesn't want you to view the cross from afar. He wants you to be within touching distance.
What do we see when we are near the cross?
We've been content for too long. The further you get away from the cross the more heartache you'll have. Christ has NOT given up on you. Come back and reclaim your position near the cross.

|Will You Believe In Jesus Christ|
|John 6:53-59 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|Jesus was God in the flesh. Many don't want to accept the fact that Jesus is God in the flesh. They view Him as just a simple man. Jesus Christ is part of the third part of the Godhead. Unless you accept Jesus Christ as whom He is, you may have NO part of Him. All one has to do is just believe. The communion service is just a representation of the broken flesh and bitter blood of Jesus Christ. When one partakes of the bread and wine they are saying that they accept Christ as being the Son of God. The only restrictions that we as our church has on the communion is that one must be born again to partake of it. Jesus was born of a virgin, He walked sinless on earth and He was sacrificed for our sins. There has been NO other person that's done that. It's simple, one must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He is the only way to Salvation.|

|The Emblem of Deliverance and the Provider|
|Exodus 17:8-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Shepherds usually had a staff, a stick. Exodus 3:4 tells a story of Moses experiencing a bush that was on fire but wasn't consumed by it. The burning bush being God told Moses to take his shoes off because he was on holy ground. Just today, we should condition ourselves for the presence of God.
Thinking about the staff of Moses, God used this staff as a proof. Exodus 4 explains that this staff was the rod of God. This rod was powerful tool of God that was used as the beginning of the plaques, turned into a snake that ate the magicians tricks. The rod of God was also used to split the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross on dry ground. It was also used to close the Red Sea. It was used to strike a rock for water to burst forth in order to water the Israelites cattle and themselves. The rod of God was held up above Moses' head and as long as it was, the Israelites people were able to prevail against the army of Amalek.
Now we often think we ourselves can do anything. The truth is that we can't do anything of ourselves. The rod was a symbol of the future to come, Jesus Christ. We can't do anything without Jesus Christ. The rod, just a Christ, is used as deliverance in any time of need. We have an emblem that we can hold high which is the cross. The reason one goes to Hell is because they reject Christ as Gods only son and Him being crucified and raised again for our sins.
The rod was also a provider as it provided safety and water. Safety from Pharos and the Amalek armies. Provider of the water when the rock was struck. In our arrogance we often think we can provide and to give safety. When the bills are due and they become paid. When the cupboard is barren but the food comes in. Satan is a coward and always strikes from the back. When he begins to attack Jesus comes from the front and chases the enemy away. Just in today's time we should help out each other and lift them up, hold the up in order to fight against the devil. We should also lift Jesus Christ up for all to see. The purpose of the church is to lift up Jesus Christ and if we can do that the job will get done.

|Is God Worthy?|
|Philippians 2:5-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We are created in His likeness. Your life matters and everything you do matters. You can thank Him for the basics like food, shelter and health but even the birds have all those things. Man wants to see Gods glory but no man can see His glory in the human form. Our human form is sinful therefore we can not look upon God without a filter from His glory. When Christ became obedient unto the cross that made a way to God Himself. There is no other way to God than thru Jesus Christ alone.
The Angels seen Jesus Christ and watched God create all creation. They then watched Jesus become a man and descend to earth as a baby. When the single angel declared His birth the rest of the angels, multitudes of them declared and glorified Him. The Angels had waited for thousands of years to proclaim Christ's birth.
There is only one way to bring glory to God. Just as Moses had to be hid from Gods glory by a rock, we are hid behind Jesus. God made a search everywhere for a way but in the end, God gave Jesus, His only son, for us to truly glorify God. John 5:23 Jesus did the very work of God.

|The Brazen Altar|
|Hebrews 13:9-15 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Heb 9:24 this is reminding that it didn't involve God as a being but just as a symbolic figures.
The Bronzen Altar was 8ft wide and 8ft long, square and stood 5ft tall. Just a church, it's setup for sin to be brought up to God. The church is open just the gate for any and all. There was no steps to the altar, it was not allowed. Christ was a type of this altar. We have an altar where we bring our burdens. Christ was crucified on a hill, no steps in order to get there. Once He was at the top He was sacrificed. The common person could go to the altar but no further. The person with the sin would make the sacrifice and would lay their hands on the sacrifice to transfer their sin to the sacrifice. While this happened the priest would then kill the animal and capture it's blood. Then the blood would then be poured around the altar for the remission of the persons sin. Imagine Christ as He was whipped and His flesh was torn. Walking to His cross leaving a trail of His blood all the way. Then when they nailed Him to the cross as His blood drained down the cross. The fire in the altar was to never go out. God started the fire and just like John the Baptist said about being baptized, it's a fire that will never go out. Once you're saved, God will put a fire deep down in your soul that will never go out. If you want your fire to grow and get hotter, find yourself at the foot of Jesus. Calvary was outside the city, the Holy Place. Sacrifice is something anyone can do and anywhere. An altar is a place where one allows things to be given up. The great thing about today's altars is that there is no shedding of blood because it's already been given. Heb 9:1-15 we should go to the cross (altar) and bear it. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ then you MUST identify with the cross. Could we pick you to pattern how to praise God? Rom 12:1 at the altar we should become a living sacrifice. What have you been bringing God to altar? Only the best could be brought to the altar, no second best. Christ walked up the ramp with the altar on His back and gave Himself as the sacrifice that would forever pay the sin debt for all that would accept it.
