|Stay Away From Evil Things|
|1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|People don't want to hear this saying anymore. People want to live the way they want to, however they want and whenever they want. Once you're born again you are no longer yourself but holy. How many of you have damaged your testimony because you've messed with something that you know you shouldn't had? Did you know that people are watching you whether you want them to or not? To some people the only "bible" they know is thru your life. Staying away from evil cramps people's style.
Let's just be honest for just a minute, look in the mirror and you should see a person that has problems with staying away from evil. One of the hardest things to do is to control the tongue. The scripture doesn't just apply to the preachers or deacons. It was addressed to ALL Christians.
It's very difficult to get a persons confidence back after it's been lost. You're the one that the lost is watching and taking note on your actions. Christians have been pulled out of the world and therefore shouldn't be IN the world. The lost are constantly looking for hypocrites.
One must prove it first to make sure it's of a Godly nature. Do the "smell test". Stop and take the time to evaluate prior to doing them. There is no grey area when it comes to right or wrong. The grey area is created by us that wants to feel good about doing something wrong, therefore it would classified as wrong. The power of the church is based upon the faithfulness or life of its members. Phil 4:8, there are things that should be done in front of the lost.
One can't unscramble the eggs or put the toothpaste back into the tube. What do you do if you've messed things up with your testimony/life? Change, there is an expectation that each time you attend church there should be a change. When we change the lost will see it and want to know what's the difference. We should apologize to them for acting out wrong.

|Matthew 24:1-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Being a Christian is not a sprint, it is a cross country marathon. The world that we live in now is the last days. Christians are being persecuted, murdered, beheaded. The Word of God is being persecuted. Why? Because people think that they are mightier than God. False prophets telling people what they want to hear, tickling their ears. People want to feel good, they do not want the conviction of sin. A lot have a form of religion but they are not saved. We that are Christians should not sleep or be lazy but endure, keep going, pray, work for Christ. We should know His promises and have the faith and strength to trust in Him to keep those promises. The life that we live can not be against God, our witness matters and can't be false. The race, body will not last forever, it will soon be over. Don't be afraid of your business, job, family or health. God is watching over us and He will protect. If you say you've never denied God, if you haven't followed Gods Word then you've denied Him. Opinions simply do not matter, if it goes against Gods Word, then it's wrong.|
|Preached by Matthew Adams on April 19, 2015 (Sunday Morning).|
|Luke 15:11-24 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|You don't have to be young to be rebellious. You don't have to teach anyone to be prideful or rebellious. We call rebellion many things. When sin comes into your life, you'll see things in a different way. When you think you've got the world by the tail, you'll start being prideful. The devil wants to destroy you and cause you to go the opposite way of God. Just because someone you know lived a rebellious life doesn't mean you need to also. You can't sow bad things and reap something good later. Ask anyone that has rebelled against God and come back to Him and they will all tell you, don't go that way. We all have a choice to live, choose God! Don't think for one minute that just because you've been raised right doesn't mean you can get by in life sowing to the world. If you go around sowing to the world you WILL reap what you have sown. You can not stop it and the harvest will be from the world. The only way to not follow the world is to repent of the worldly nature of your flesh. Once your child gets to a certain age a parent can no longer chasten them, but that also means they've fallen into Gods hands. If you're a child of God and begin to run wild with the resources of the devil, you will run out. The devil only has so much to hand to you but you will run out as far away as where you started. Children think that their life is hard living with their parents. What makes a child think that a parent that would jump in front of a bullet would lead them or motivate them in the wrong direction? There are rules and regulation throughout this world and they are usually there to protect everyone because someone cared. When one rebels they will resort to doing embarrassing things for the devil. If you're saying, when you clean you're act up, you'll come to church, it will never happen. No one has ever been able to clean themselves. Romans 8:35-37 Nothing can separate us from Gods love. The devil will steal everything you've got before you realize that you need to go back to God.|

|Pray For The Watchmen (Part 1 of 2)|
|Ezekiel 33:1-9 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|It's a blessing to be a watchman for God. When God speaks we should listen. When God calls you to be a watchman, He puts a calling in your heart. We need men and women that will be faithful to the calling of God. If you've been called, you know it and you will be immediately equipped in order to do Gods work. 1 Cor 1:17-18 A preacher is called by God and He will put a burden in their heart for the duty of God. When the man of God preaches and it's of the Spirit, if it pricks your heart, you better heed the calling. Romans 10:13-15 If you've been saved, thank a preacher! Try not to get offended with the preacher when he warns the flock. God speaks to the preacher and let's the preacher know what to speak. God is in full control of the future of the church. The man preaching is not to be honored. The functions, the preaching is what needs to be honored. Pray for a watchmen.|

|Don't You Talk About My Momma!|
|Exodus 20:7 (Part of the Revival 2013 series).|
|We love you only because Christ loved us first. The Lord wants to heal your heart. Our father knows what we have need of before you ask. It's important we don't use his name in vain. He must increase and I must decrease. Do not be as the hypocrites are and have vain repetitions. Instead of asking for something, repent! We can accomplish something if we don't pray in vain. You can't praise him with sin in your heart. The name of Jesus should be honored and lifted up. Do you worship in vain? Too many people want to speak but you should be slow to speak and quick to listen. No more is it a chore to come to Gods house. Sometimes your lost buddies or your lost families are expecting something from you. But, your heart must be near to him. They believed because they were preaching in the power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost. The results are immediate. If you love him you will keep his commandments. Quite making a mess out of his name. God gives the increase. The men who were led by the Holy Ghost made progress. Cry out to Jesus! We are too relaxed. There's only one great one! The only sustainability is the blood of Jesus Christ. You can't take a break from god and expect to just pick up where you left off. People fight over money or power but without Jesus it's all in vain. If your program is not seasoned with the Holy Ghost it isn't profitable. You can't put anybody's name with Jesus to break free of sin. There's something wrong if the name of Jesus doesn't cause you to recognize what he did for you. Many called but few are chosen. Everything you say or do should speak Jesus. Before revival you have to comprehend the name of Jesus. We are proud of ourselves. Anything you do is in vain if you aren't right with god. Call upon the name of The Lord while he may be found. We are required to live right. We have in our man made products but lacking in the trust of god. Satan himself was vain. Pride will keep people from true salvation. God allowed his only lamb to cleanse your sin. Have you said the name of The Lord in vain. Will you enter the kingdom of heaven. Anytime you say his name in a useless way it's saying his name in vain.|
