|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.

|How To Be Happy|
|Psalm 1:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What's going on in our world right now? Just a few years ago folks loved to worship God and couldn't wait to worship God and depending on God for everything. The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy. For all of us there is two parts to us, a flesh and a spiritual. Blessed is the man that doesn't walk with the world. Satan doesn't want us to tell anyone about the goodness of God or invite folks or even yourself to church. So how can a man or woman be happy? There is only one thing that can make one happy. Which would you rather have, something that's temporary or something that's eternal?

|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|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.|

|Cloak of Disguise|
|Isaiah 6:1-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We fail to see the power in Gods Word, the holy bible. When He speaks things change, things happen and they happen just as He speaks. The word of God is what makes us free. In most cases our minds are tickled by the lies of the world which is why we choose not to listen to God's word. Your agenda does not matter when it comes to God's. There is not enough self help books in the world to fix and remove your sins. We often convince ourselves that we are all we need to correct our wrong doings. Salvation is not the end, it's the beginning of your life. Everyday the enemy, satan tries to get into our minds. Our biggest problems are ourselves because we are all flesh. There has never been a bigger lie that that of the, "I'm fine" attitude. We are we the only ones that allows the devil to control our lives? It's because we want to, we are ignorant. God's truth has always been there to remove the false nature of the devil. One can't get close to perfectness without realizing your not perfect in comparison. We are worried about what others think about us more than what God knows about it. We have no excuse to lose. We live defeated lives because we chose to not live as Christ has told us. Why do we turn and resist God doing what we want to do when all the while God is the only one that knows what's good for us? Can you really see God? Can you feel God? Are their blinders in your life hiding your sins?|
