|1 Thessalonians 5:21 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|No matter who is doing the teaching or preaching we should always know if it's the truth or not. There are many that for many years claim to be Christian but don't even know what the bible says. How can you check what is being taught if you don't know what the truth is? The only source of truth is the Word of God. 1 John 4:1, there are a lot of wolves in sheep clothing. We should not be live every spirit because not all spirits are good. A preacher should always be reading and have the bible with them at all times. Opinions are not truth but of personal thoughts. Preachers can lead you wrong. They can be teaching you something that they don't fully know themselves. It's not that all would intentionally mislead or misguide but simply not know and teach on assumptions. If you don't go to Sunday School then you need to start. The key word there is school. Our church is in session for about an hour learning more about Gods Word every Sunday. We should prove the preaching and to prove all things. We should know the difference between good and evil. Do you believe there is a devil? A car mass does one thing and one thing only, it points to true north. Just as the compass, the scripture points to the truth. We are pretty smart at most times and we know when we are in the middle of something that's not right. How do they know what is a counterfeit bill, they study the real. Not only should we prove what is good but we are to hold to those truths. It's a continuous process of sowing and reaping good things. The preacher can't plant the good stuff for you. He plants his own and you plant your own. In order to hold fast to the good it takes discipline. A lot of people don't like discipline because it's usually painful. Heb 10:23, you've got to make a choice and commit. Psa 119:33-34, once you've proven all things to the good then you should stick to the good, Phil 4:8.|

|1 Thessalonians 5:20 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|In this scripture prophesying means, preaching. Despise: To dislike Have you ever sat under some preaching and thought, well that's not for me? We should never think that we are over the preached word. There is always something in a sermon that is for you. Preaching is important, the Word of God is very important to our souls. When you walk into our building the first thing one sees is the elevated pulpit. All of the pews are facing the front. All of our attention should be upon the front of the church. We should not honor the one bring the word but the word itself. God is not concerned about the vessel but the obedience it has. The story should never get old. Every time you hear about the cross and its suffering it should be like you've never heard it before and break you once again. Some hear the title of the sermon and mark it off as if they've got it figured out already and do not need it. Don't check out prematurely! No matter whom is preaching the message and whether you like them or not, it's not the deliverers that bless but the Word of God. We must ALL be careful of whom is bringing the Word because that person is only a deliverer. Don't think yourself above the preaching. It pleases God thru the foolishness of preaching. The jumping, yelling, crying, screaming, running, etc. Not only to save souls but to keep them and grow them. We don't know how God is going to bless and feed so we must be very careful NOT to despise.|

|All Is Yours|
|1 Corinthians 3:21-23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God has promised us a few things and His promises are true. God has called us out from amongst the world to be a different people. God is not limited by anything. He is the creator of ALL things and therefore controls it ALL! When God saves someone they are saved for eternity because that is one of His promises, He doesn't change His mind.
It matters how you live because others are learning by your walk. We should not worship "men" like pastors, priests or great leaders. Preachers are called of God and all have their own calling of how they teach and bring the word whether they are extraordinary or ordinary. The man of God should at all times preach Gods Word and nothing else and if He wavers should be confronted in love according to His word. God is the same God from the hills of Tennessee to Rome!
Not only is the men of God that preach His word are ours, but the world also. This means anything in this world can be used by Him to make us better and work us to His will. The devil will come to you and offer you the world for your love for him but Satan doesn't have that authority. Satan could offer you the keys to Fort Knox but that would be for your own benefit. God doesn't need the gold or all the cash in this world.
People worry too much about life because it's unknown. If we knew life then we would worry more because of the known end and struggles thru it. When one wakes up and realizes they have to go to work yet again, stop and thank God for being able to do so instead of complaining.
Death is also ours that is of Christ's. This is because He has defeated death and it has no hold on His children. The only thing that will happen at the end of our life is that God will take us by the hand and lead us to His Glory.
The present is also ours if we are Christ's. What do you really need from this world? God has complete control over it all and therefore is ours. This is Gods "Will" that He wrote for us all that are His because we are His children. Just like the present is ours, the future is also ours. We can not fathom what the future holds.
The reason that all of these things are simply answered because we are Christ's and He is Gods.
John 10:28-29 sums it all up in a very simple verse.

|It Doesn't Change|
|2 Timothy 4:1-4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There's a day coming when no one will fear God, but that doesn't change the fact that the truth still remains. So preach the word anyhow because it doesn't change. God offers a change on the inside. But His doctrine doesn't change even when the world around us changes. It's not about your opinion or philosophies. It's about God's truth. Preach the word. Be instant in season and out, even if no one will listen, keep preaching the truth. Don't change your gospel. Don't waver on God's truth. Keep preaching the word. Cause, in the end, it's all that will save.|

|There is Despair When There is No Success|
|1 Kings 19:1-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Elijah prayed for rain and within hours it was raining but shortly after during his miracle the enemy came to him. The goal was not about rain, it was about men changing their hearts towards God. When the enemy came to Elijah he ran off away from the enemy. If a man like Elijah could be caught in a snare all the while in Gods miracles, how could we do it? Have you ever been there in great despair? Have you ever prayed, studied, worked and fasted but nothing happened? We can't make someone get saved, change them or make certain things happen by our doings. During Elijah's despair there was no body around to help him in his time of need. No one was their to help him see that God was still there when the enemy was punching him in the gut. In your work place, if you don't perform your job then there is no paycheck. But in God work, He already knows your work and your payout isn't truly based on your work. Think about when the preachers preach and the response is great from the congregation. But thinking about the same thing and on Sunday nights folks nap during the service. Have you as a church member ever thought about cancelling a church service because no one is there in attendance? Nothing gets done when we wallow in our disappointments. Have you ever known God not to be with you? Gods people will end up in despair at some point in their Christian walk but they always end up at Gods feet. God will pick them up and put them back on their journey each and every time. So when you get disappointed, you'll sit down, backslide.|
