|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.

|You Know Already|
|Daniel 5:1-31 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|When you get to judgement, the only thing that will come from your mouth will be, "amen" hearing your own condemnation if you're lost. Every man is a liar and God is true. In our history books we read about Babylon falling and when it fell a great party took place. Daniel 5:1-31 speaks of this great fall. When you die your not just dead, there is a life after death. Which life you pass into is up to you. Daniel 5:22 people walk around with the knowledge of Jesus Christ coming to save the lost. Refusing to believing in that fact does not make it invisible or non applicable to you. The reason why the lost will say amen to their own condemnation is because they knew. We live in a time that folks are unmoved of the truth of Jesus Christ. Daniel 5:23 shows us that he had no fear of what God could do. Today we live in a time that folks no longer fear the living God. People live after their own wisdom which is flawed. Titus 2:11 proves to everyone that Christ's invitation will appear to ALL persons. Daniel 5:24 declares a judgement, a closing. Once judgement is declared, it's done, finished. Judgement will catch many unaware because death is a sure surprise. Daniel 5:30 death came to a great city, one of the greatest cities fortified by men. Hebrews 10:28-31 you might walk around today with no fear of meeting a Holy God. Living just as you want in a lifestyle without Christ in your life. But when death finds you unprepared, it will be too late to accept Jesus Christ. God holds your very breath and that one fact should be enough to fear Him. He loves you and wants you to be with Him in His dwelling place, Heaven. When Jesus Christ invites you to be saved, accept His plead. Don't refuse Him, run to Him.|

|Are You Bearing Good Fruit?|
|Galatians 5:16-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|To live in the spirit you must be born again. There was a reason that Jesus had to go away. If He had not gone away then the comforter would not have come. If you're saved then you should act that way. Gal 5:19-21 bind one to the world and should not be a part of a Christians life. Gal 5:22-24 should be reflected by a Christians life at all times. Are you bearing good fruit? A person can not love unconditionally without the love of Christ and in order to have that one must be saved. The unsaved can only love if they are loved back. The Spirit of God is to be active and not dormant in a Christians life. If no one is able to see your fruit, is it really there? The second thing that God produces is joy. Joy can not be produced by a person. What you feel when something makes you happy is only temporary and will eventually disappear. Most "joy" down here is a lust of the flesh happiness. Jesus gives us unspeakable joy that is everlasting. Peace, another fruit that's given during Salvation. Peace that can surpass all troubles and difficulties. Nothing can give a person peace like Jesus can. Jesus may not move the mountain in your life but He will give you the peace to climb it. Longsuffering a fruit from God above and an attribute of patience. When our loved once are living dangerously in the world and God tells you to let God have them, that requires much patience and longsuffering. A Christian should have gentleness. How many times have you wanted to "get even"? Don't overlook gentleness because it's a tough one in the world we live in. Goodness, there is none good but the fruit of the Spirit can produce it. If there has ever been a time to need good Chrisitians, it's now. Those Christians that would get into the ditch to help another without thinking about themselves. The faith that we have comes from God because without it we would struggle to believe. So how does one receive the faith? Walk in the Spirit. Where we can't, He will. All of the fruits of the Spirit is what Jesus had, therefore being a Christian is being "Christ like". Love those that hate you, pray for those that hate you, care for those that are enemies to you. Those things are meekness. Temperance or self-control. We could all use more temperance. We live in the world full of addictions, pornography, drugs, sexual sins, all lusts of the flesh. All nine of these things can not be produced by oneself. They can only be produced by God alone thru Salvation.|

|A Secret Disciple|
|John 19:38-42 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What it means to be a secret disciple of Jesus Christ. There are a lot of people that try to establish what that means abut Jesus declared what it was so therefore what you think doesn't matter. Once you become born again there is a change that takes place on the inside. There were two men at the tomb of Jesus, Joseph of Arimathaea. This man was a secret disciple of Christ because he was afraid of the Jews but yet believed in Him. The other was Nicodemus which the same man that Jesus spoke with secretly about being born again John 3. But the second time we see Nicodemus was not at night but during the day. There are two things that changed these men and that was the cross, the death of Jesus. Jesus isn't after your flesh to save but after your eternal soul. So where we're did these men obtain their courage? Once they realized that Jesus Christ was God incarnated during His crucifixion, that changed everything for them. Joseph's tomb was cut from solid rock therefore taking a long time and was surely of great value. No one had been buried there prior to Jesus. The Jews wanted guards to makes sure the body went in and the body was to stay put.|

|Always In Love|
|Jude 1:17-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We live in a time where people call wrong right and the right wrong. God is always in control no matter how hard or easy life is. If you don't the Spirit of Christ then you are lost in darkness. If one lives in a life thinking that it's us against them, then one has missed the mark. A Christian adversary is not against a person or a political agenda, it's a spiritual battle against Satan and his demons. Jesus Christ came to earth to give His body as a sacrifice for ALL sinners. One only has to believe in Him in order to be saved. We as Christians are not in the business of saving the lost. There will be some that will not be saved only by their choice. It's not Gods will that they die lost. The very thing that allowed one to be saved is a Holy Faith. Without faith it's impossible to serve God. No matter what we have to go through down here on earth, Gods love and our Holy faith will bring us through anything. When the time comes when it gets hard we should pray in the Holy Ghost. We should keep ourselves in the love of God. We can't keep ourselves saved, God does that part but we are to keep ourselves as clean as possible. We are to strive to stay with God and not waver, stay in love with God. When one falls in love with someone they surrender to the other and do whatever it takes to stay with them. Some are weak spiritually and we are to help those, love them, have compassion on them. We should know the difference between weak and willful. We should help the weak through compassion to get them stronger in the Lord. None of us are exempt of being weak. Some must hear that God controls their life and if they don't live for God, He will take full control. Jude 1:24, if you've ever wondered if salvation is eternal or can ever be wavering.|
