|Why Have You Done This?|
|Jonah 1:1-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Why did Jonah want to disobey God? It wasn't that he just wanted to rebel against God. He tried to get away from the presence of God. Our human flesh does not want to have anything to do with God. Have you ever looked in the mirror of self and wondered why you did a certain something? Why did Eve go out and do what God plainly told her the one thing not to do? Because of Adam and Eve we were cursed to die and suffer. Now we are not talking about the lost, we talk about the ones that are saved and know better. We could go down all of the scripture looking at all the followers of God and see where they made a choice to go against God. The reason that the saved can't keep themselves is because we are all sinners, we live in a sinful body. One can't sow a seed in the flesh and expect it to grow spiritual fruit. Even a farmer knows that he can't plant an apple seed expecting to grow an orange. Having a thought is not the sin, it's when the thought is acted upon is when sin is conceived. What's so appealing to the comfort of our bed, the softness of our pillows that causes us to not come to church on Sunday mornings? Every day Christians are making the choice to do what they want to do instead of turning their life back to God. Just as God prepared a fish for Jonah He will prepare something in the Christians life to turn them back. There is a time coming in a backslid Christians life that God will either turn you around or take you out. You're either running from God because you're lost or because you're backslid. If you keep going back to the sins of this world and can't seem to avoid those things that you're probably lost. Once you've been born a again you will not want to do those things because you're a changed person. Just as any good and loving parent will do God will also chasten His children when they do wrong. He does this because He loves His children and wants them to behave.|

|There Is No Grey Area|
|2 Thessalonians 1:1-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God is just in ALL that He does. He doesn't have to give us an answer on why He does certain things. Salvation is a personal decision and no one but oneself can accept it. Just because a family member was a good person and attended church or a pastor told you that you were saved doesn't make you saved.
There is an end to those that reject Christ. You can either be with Christ or against Him. The wrath of God will be poured out on the unbelievers. At some point or another each and every person is a wicked person. In order to have the wickedness removed one must be born again.
If you've refused Christ then you will be placed into an eternal separation of God. You will be able to see the goodness but will never experience it. So not only will you be in a fire that will never go out where it constantly licks at your skin but a pain that will never go numb.
Some say that God is a someone that hates but it's the furthest thing from the truth. God took is only son and sacrificed Him to allow a way for ALL to be able to be forever loved.
When you die and reach the God the judge, you will say amen to your own sins. It is a personal Salvation, personal sin and one will answer for their own doings. God knows the length of your days and you or anyone else can not control when it comes.

|Privileged Beyond... (Part 2)|
|Hebrews 10:19-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Part one (Wednesday) declares the privileges that we have with God. God made a way for us to come to the throne of Grace thru Christ alone. A lot of people don't like to be told what to do. If someone told you that you have an ailment that you'll die from yet someone else comes to you and explains that they have the cure. You're reaction would be, whatever it takes I want to live. You'll be forever in debt to that person for that cure. Grace is free. This free is not an indication of it being cheap. There are some debts, responsibilities that we owe to God for that forever cure over death. 1. We should draw near to God. This means to get rid of the lusts of the flesh and come to an altar for repentance. In order to get close to God you must want to be close to God and take action. 2. We must stay close to God. There are some that once they are next to God they quickly fall away. The flesh is strong and doesn't want to stay close to God. Once you've been healed from that death sentence ailment you don't want to stay close to the one that healed you? That seems slightly ungrateful. 3. We should love one another and lift one another up. If they don't love you, love them more than yourself. If they hate you, love them. God loved you unconditionally even though you never deserved His love. Love as Christ loved. 4. We should not fail to go to church and worshiping with others. When we attend church with others and are faithful attenders it helps others. It provokes love amongst the fellowship of others. When one is absent then the rest suffers. It's not a burden to attend church, the problem is that your heart is loving something else more than God and others. Anyone that joined the church did it on their own accord. You joined because you wanted to. When you joined you made an agreement to love, help and faithful service to the body of Christ, the church. We as a country are in a bad shape. No matter whom the president is elected, the masses are simply in a state of not caring for their neighbor. We will either repent as a nation or stand in Gods judgment. So when you see the day approaching of Gods wrath, the body of Christ becomes more and more important.|

|Always In Love|
|Jude 1:17-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We live in a time where people call wrong right and the right wrong. God is always in control no matter how hard or easy life is. If you don't the Spirit of Christ then you are lost in darkness. If one lives in a life thinking that it's us against them, then one has missed the mark. A Christian adversary is not against a person or a political agenda, it's a spiritual battle against Satan and his demons. Jesus Christ came to earth to give His body as a sacrifice for ALL sinners. One only has to believe in Him in order to be saved. We as Christians are not in the business of saving the lost. There will be some that will not be saved only by their choice. It's not Gods will that they die lost. The very thing that allowed one to be saved is a Holy Faith. Without faith it's impossible to serve God. No matter what we have to go through down here on earth, Gods love and our Holy faith will bring us through anything. When the time comes when it gets hard we should pray in the Holy Ghost. We should keep ourselves in the love of God. We can't keep ourselves saved, God does that part but we are to keep ourselves as clean as possible. We are to strive to stay with God and not waver, stay in love with God. When one falls in love with someone they surrender to the other and do whatever it takes to stay with them. Some are weak spiritually and we are to help those, love them, have compassion on them. We should know the difference between weak and willful. We should help the weak through compassion to get them stronger in the Lord. None of us are exempt of being weak. Some must hear that God controls their life and if they don't live for God, He will take full control. Jude 1:24, if you've ever wondered if salvation is eternal or can ever be wavering.|

|Is God's Voice Enough?|
|Hebrews 12:5-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you've been born again there will be a chastening to those that do wrong. To those that say they are saved but turn their back and run back into sin, they more then likely haven't been saved. There is not place in the middle to do what you want to do when you're saved. You're either right following what God wants or you're wrong doing what the devil wants. If you can enjoy sin and live in it then you need to dig deeper towards your salvation. We should stop compromising with the world. To some people, God's voice isn't enough to bring them back home. God will scourge His children and it's not fun, if His children continue to disobey Him. Pride is the unwillingness to ask for forgiveness. If you're running from God then you're running the wrong way.|
