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?

  • Supplication Luke 22:40-44, If praying is good enough for our savior then it's good enough for us. If we get close to the cross we will pray like we are suppose to. Prayer is not to inform God something of something. The purpose of prayer is relationship. We pray to work against temptation. Did you know that you won't get to the cross by accident? It's a deliberate decision that's made that you want to get closer. Strength comes near the cross while praying.
  • Submission It no longer about you once you're at the cross. Phil 2:5-8, you've got to be willing to be a nobody. There is a lack of submission in the church today towards God. You're either being a helping hand or a hired hindrance. James 4:6-7, when you submit to God then the devil will leave you alone because he doesn't like the cross.
  • Suffering If you take a stand for God then your suffering will be great but if you're next to the cross things get a whole lot better. Luke 24:25-26, Did Jesus not suffer during His scourging? As He got closer to His cross the suffering got worse.
  • Solitude Jesus was by himself as He got closer to His cross. John 19:25, once there was a multitude as people would seek Him out and at the cross there was only 5. As long as He was feeding the five thousand the people would stick around. But then when He was dying for the sin of the world then the people left Him. When you get close to Jesus your so-called friends will begin to leave but you'll end up with just a few. Those few are usually the ones that are sold out to Jesus just as you. Do you feel like you're not being feed? It's a selfish excuse. It's not about you.
  • Sacrifice We all want something for nothing. Heb 7:26-27, Jesus went to the cross and gave up His life on His own terms, an ultimate sacrifice that only He could do. That sacrifice was for us. Mark 10 speaks of a rich man that simply didn't know the gospel. Jesus explained to him about how to get to heaven. Jesus loved this man throughout their conversation. Jesus told him to basically deny himself and follow Him. But this rich man loved his stuff more than Jesus and couldn't do it. Not we do this same thing everyday but there is a difference and that's Salvation. If we have salvation then we know and should understand what we should do but we choose otherwise. You say you can't come to Sunday school cause it's too early but you'll get up to go to your place of work that's earlier.
  • Success Eph 2:13, Jesus blood covers it all. What Jesus did at the cross was simply enough. Gal 2:20, His death should have been our death. It's about being born again and nothing else.

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.

It Takes The Blood
1 John 1:7 (Part of the Communion Services series).
Without the shedding of blood there can never be a remission of sin. In the Old Testament it was a rule that no one was to drink blood. Blood is life. Folks want to be talked to nicely, encouraged, strengthened and uplifted when they walk into a church. The Old Testament was a dirty part of the bible that blood was given for sins. Many of animals were sacrificed time and time again as their blood poured out. When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden an animal had to be sacrificed for its skin to cover their nakedness. Cain and Abel brought their sacrifice before God but only Abel was accepted because it was blood and was his best. Noah sacrificed the clean animals just as soon as he walked out onto dry land because he knew they had sinned and also God saved them. Abraham obeyed God and took his son Izaak to be sacrificed. When God knew Abraham was serious he stopped his hand and gave him a ram to be the sacrifice. Moses was told that on a certain day he was to take a perfect lamb, sacrifice it and use its blood to mark those houses that are believers in order to avoid death. Solomon had a 100,000 lambs sacrificed for the dedication of the temple of God. Where is your sacrifice? God has warned us about sin and that something has to die for it to be removed. Then one night the shepards were told that a lamb was born and this spotless lamb would remove ALL the sins of the world forever more. We have the privilege to get on our hands and knees to pray to God just because Jesus was sacrificed for His blood. Before Jesus' ultimate sacrifice, we would not be allowed to do such a thing. Jesus Christ began His blood sacrifice in the garden for when He wept. He then was tortured and beat almost to death. Forced to carry a wooden cross thru town all the while being mocked and spat upon. He was then laid upon a cross and nailed to it and then stripped naked and rose to the sky for everyone to see. As the blood of His body drained out and He died, a soldier took his sword and pierced His side and blood and water flowed out. Once Christ was dead He took His own blood and presented it to His father as a worthy sacrifice for ALL.

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.
