|Get On Board the S.S. Grace|
|Genesis 6:1-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|SS sometimes stood for sailing ship or steamship but think about safe and secure. The world right now is spiraling out of control with evil. We all come into another SS which is sin sick. When Jesus laid His body down for the ultimate sacrifice He offered up His own blood to a His father for all of our sins then and now.
Noah had to proclaim for about 120 years that their time was numbered. Everyone made fun of him and called him crazy because of what he was telling them about water falling from the sky. They'd never seen anything like that because the earth was watered from the ground up. Just like today's times, we are warning others about a his second coming but everyone mocks the Christian because they haven't seen Jesus.
The door of the ark was shut and sealed. Jesus will only come to a lost person so many times to which He only promises but one time. When you turn Him away, you've shut the door to Christ and once the door is shut, it's shut for good. Your fate is forever sealed. During the flood not only was it raining from above but water was coming up from the ground as well. It did this for 40 days and 40 nights across the entire world. It created a new world fresh with Noah's family which followed a Gods word.
Moses', his mother knew he was to be killed so she made an ark out of weeds, bulrush. God told the woman that found him that she couldn't do on her own so she set out to find a help. The help was actually Moses very own mother to which she raised him right in the middle of the people that wanted to kill him.
There was a ship that Paul was on and a really bad storm set in. God came to Paul and told him that they were to lose everything they had except their lives as long as they stayed in the ship. They ran aground and the ship tore apart but the people never let go of the ship. None of them lost there lives because they obeyed and never left the ship however they lost everything they had.
Religion will not save a person. Never has, never will.

|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.|

|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.|

|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.|
