|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 Wiles of the Devil|
|Ephesians 6:10-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Satan is a created being and is no different than the angels in heaven. Satan has many tactics that he uses on the children of God on a daily basis. The thief has come to steal, kill and destroy. The thief is the devil and the wicked spirits that serve him. Their are enough to spread across the world. The devil does not have free rein of a christian because we are protected by the shield of God. John 10:10, 2 Cor 2:11, Eph 6:16, 1 Peter 5:8 We truly have an enemy and we can not stand in the flesh to fight him. It takes something greater than the flesh to fight him because he is in the sprint therefore must be fought in the spirit. He is not omnipresent but has many demons that do his handy-work. This world currently is the devils domain until Jesus comes back. The very thing that we live in, the flesh, wants to live in the world because of it’s lust. Nothing has changed since Adam and Eve because he is still deceiving and lying to people everyday. What a terrifying thing to be able to see with our eyes the spiritual warfare that goes on all around us. If we are saved then we are protected by Gods great hand and satan can not get to us unless God allows it. When Jesus died, He died for ALL but many will not submit to Him. If you’re playing with the devil he will take you further than you ever thought you would go quicker than you ever thought. When you light a match and place that flame under your hand, you will pull your hand back because there is a nerve that warns you of danger. Just as that nerve warns you, God also warns you of the dangers of the devil. Satan wants to destroy your testimony if you’re saved. Satan will use anything he can to tear you down. He will use religion itself to bring you down. If you are saved then you’re going to heaven but that doesn’t mean that if you play with the devil that he will keep people around you lost and going into hell. We hear it everyday, pastors having affairs because satan laid a woman in their lives. We as humans are ignorant to satan’s lies and deceptions.|

|Acts 10:1-22 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We must have confidence in God but in order to do that we must change. Everyone wants to go to heaven but in order to do that we must be changed. We often go out and look at others and think that God would have a hard time saving them. The first thing that will help us to change is to pray. Get and make a private time that's between you and God and nothing else. We must also not look to ourselves in doing all the work. The work can only be done when we allow God to do the work and not ourselves. We have the Word which is God if we are saved to share to the lost but, we can only share it when we are in the shape to share it. There will always be someone around you that will not make a decision to follow God but, don't let them discourage you. We are currently living in a grace period where God loves us beyond our sins but, soon the grace will leave us when Jesus comes back. God doesn't look upon us currently and judge our sins. One sin is just as much as a million sins no matter the humanly made level. We must always know that nothing is higher than Jesus. Cancer is lower than Jesus. Habitual sin is lower than Jesus. Worldly things are lower than Jesus. The president is lower than Jesus. Jesus is reclusive as He is the only way into heaven. There are many religions in the world and most are based on works but all are lies from Satan unless Jesus Christ is the only way to Salvation. Often we like to embellish what God has spoken to us only to add lies to His Word. This is a sin and should never take place. Stick to the truth, Gods Word and do not change or add to His Word.|

|Deal With It!|
|Colossians 3:1-9 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The truth is the bible whether anyone wants to believe it or not. There are things that we all have problems lining up with. The things that separate us from Christ and the joys that behold Him are worldly and sinful. Col 3:5 We want to excuse ourselves of certain things just because we don't want to deal with those sins. The problem with a living sacrifice is that it keeps squirming and never sits still. We should stop fornicating. Fornication is sex at any measure outside of marriage. Uncleanness is lewd and unclean thoughts and should be repented of. Inordinate affections are vile desires, homosexuality. Evil concupiscence is evil lusts, murder. These four things are fleshly lusts. Covetousness is the lust of the eyes, love of the world. Theses things are often tied to the pride of life, anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, and filthy communication. Anger should always be taken care of and not dwelt on. Wrath is similar to anger and is a product of it. Wrath is somewhat you should have dealt with and usually requires forgiveness of the worldly enemy. Wraths revenge is malice. Blasphemy is speaking evil. The tongue is like the rudder of a large ship, it's small but turns the entire ship. Blasphemy and filthy communication is due to the anger, wrath and malice that comes out verbally. Our speech should be the one thing that when others hear it they know it's of Christ. God hates a lie because it's the opposite of truth. One might think, it's just a little white lie. One should be careful because if it doesn't line up with Gods Word, it's wrong whether you think it was little or not. One of the reasons why we should deal with the above sins, Col 3:6 those things are what a lost person does. If you're saved and do those things then you're living in sin and asking for Gods wrath because you're living a hypocrites life. The saved knows the difference between doing those sinful things and living in Gods love. If a person still wants the old stuff, then your lost. When you're saved you no longer desire the sinful nature because you're a new person in Christ.|

|Loving the Enemy (Part 1)|
|2 Peter 3:1-7 (Part of the 2 Peter 3 series).|
|Some 2000 years later the scripture is still relevant. Be careful not to exclude the old testament from the new. Both old and new are just as relevant today as it was years ago. Those that choose to not believe the bible are scoffers, those that will mock the bible. Those that scoff are prideful in their own belief. They mock sin because they live in their own flesh. They will declare that what God has said is wrong and what they want is good. One of the reasons why people mock God is because no one stands against it. 60-70 years ago there was still a fear of God. So what's the truth? If God is truth then everything is a lie. There can be only one truth. The scoffers will mock salvation because they think they do not need it. The difference between the scoffers and the saved is simply the knowing. The saved were once scoffers. Those that scoff will mock the fact they are being told what to do. God is sovereign, completely in full control and the only way one can be saved. The unsaved will often mock the second coming. The truth is that they are willingly ignorant because they know there is a creation but choose to not believe in a creator. God came before and He WILL come again. He told the world that He would destroy them by flood afterwards giving a promise by a rainbow that He wouldn't destroy it again by a flood. He then said He would come by fire on the second return.|
