|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.

|The Cross and the Crown (Part 1 of 2)|
|Galatians 6:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The cross is an emblem of Jesus' sacrifice. The power of God is represented by the cross of salvation. Mat 16 tells us that we also have a cross to bear. The cross was not Jesus' to bear but our sins, but He bore them for all. Just because you might be sick or worried is not a cross to bear for Christ but a general ailment because we are human. The cross we must bear is of that after salvation, the flesh wants what the spirit can't have. It's a constant battle that is never ending being a child of God. How many are ashamed of their salvation hiding it from others? Is it a burden, no, it's a purpose from Christ. Each child of God has their own cross that they must bear and can only be carried by themselves. Why do we need a cross? It will keep one humbled. It was beyond the cross of Calvary that kept Jesus motivated. The cross will keep one to praying. Jesus prayed before in the garden because of the cross and what was to come. The cross has multiple purposes but the things of the flesh we should crucify daily. We should take those sins and fleshly wants to the cross and crucify them. So not only is the cross an emblem to the world of the power of God but it's also a help in the very time of need in removing fleshly wants. We should be giving ourselves as a living sacrifice. Too many people want to classify themselves as a Christian on Sunday but live like the world all the other days. A cross hung around ones neck is just a piece of jewelry and can't and won't make one a Christian. The cross is the belief that Jesus Christ hung and died for your sins.|

|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.|

|Death, It's Coming|
|1 Corinthians 15:51-58 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There is a day that the corruptible and mortal will become incorruptible and immortal. One can not deny that death is real. We will all die at some point or another. Death is an adversary that can not be avoided. No power here on this earth is capable of stopping death. Death will catch us all. We should all live like today is your last day and do Gods work like it's your last, having a sincere fear of being judged. The death of the wicked, the lost, have sin and no remedy for it and it is a sting an uncomfortable feeling. A saved person has had their sins forgiven by God and therefore the sting of death has been removed. So what sin is the sin that can't be forgiven of? It's the sin of rejecting Jesus Christ as your personal savior. If you die without accepting Jesus Christ as your savior that sin will keep you out of Heaven. Your salvation is not based of you or a priest, it's based on accepting Jesus Christ as your savior.|
