TODAY’S SABBATH MESSAGE – “THE PROBLEM IS…”

Humble scripture

The problem with some believers is that we feel that we are somehow entitled to the things of GOD after we have been forgiven by God through Christ.

However, true repentance doesn’t look for nor expects to prosper after offending THE ALMIGHTY YHVH and being forgiven by YHVH. True repentance looks to make amends in offering his body as a reasonable sacrifice unto the LORD who Saved his dying Soul.  True repentance recognizes his crime, confesses his transgression and with shame and HUMILITY, begs for mercy and forgiveness.  True repentance is distraught and disgusted at his own vile sinful nature and recognizes his eternal indebtedness to GOD.

It is only because of YHVH’S Inexhaustible LOVE and Tender Mercies Toward Us That We Are Even Allowed To Live, Move and Have Being.  It is only because of GOD’S GRACE that we are experiencing this day.

Regardless of what the false prophets preach and despite the fairy tales and occult nature of the supernatural gospels and in spite of the glamor, glitter and gold of the spirit of opulence and prosperity seed-faith gospels, Please Remain Humble my Friends and…

REPENT!

My Only Concern Is…

Jesus Prayer cryAs I approach the one year anniversary of my life and death struggle and the miracle of answered prayers, I am reminded of how very fragile and fleeting life is. And although we don’t want to think about it, one day will be our last day here on earth. And I just want all of my friends and enemies alike to know that it has been and continues to be my prayer that you receive from the Lord what He has entrusted me to deliver to you without charge or prejudice—the saving Word of God. I pray and hope that the commentaries, Bible questions, videos, audio lessons and radio broadcasts, along with my webpages and newsletters have inspired some to repent of sin, turn from their wicked ways, seek God’s face, surrender to His will and Obey His Eternal Commandments. All of the countless articles, posts and video and radio productions are hard work but they are works of obedient Love for God and sacrificial Love for you.

It is my deepest hope that none should perish but that all should come to repentance and the Truth of salvation in Christ Jesus. For the day of our departure will come as a thief in the night and I want to be ready when my day comes. I don’t want to die with my work undone or anybody’s blood on my hands. Therefore, I sound the alarm to Repent before it is too late. (Ezekiel 33:1-9)

While some are concerned with their ministerial careers and position in their churches and communities, I am only concerned with carrying out the mission and purpose of God – Saving the lost, deceived, confused, hurt, misled, damaged, trapped and dying souls who are willing and eager to hear and obey God’s Truth.

I have learned that God’s way is eternal and does not change because He doesn’t change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. His commands are eternal because they were perfect from the beginning. And to truly worship the LORD, we must learn to call His Law a delight and not try to explain them away or dismiss them. I pray and hope that you’ve heard the Voice of God and not my voice and that your path is straighter though narrower than it was when we first met.

Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

All Glory and Honor belongs to God the Father in the name of Christ our Lord.

I Love You!

“Keep Looking Up!”

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table

Who Do You Want To be Like?

“You too should have this attitude which Christ Jesus had. Since he already existed in the very form of God, equality with God was not something He felt He had to grasp for. Nevertheless, He deprived Himself of His status and took on the form of a slave, born in the likeness of men. He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to the point of death, a death on the cross at that.”  – Philippians 2:5-8

Many Christians and Christian leaders are intrigued by and attracted to the glitter, glamour, power, celebrity and wealth of the mega star preachers and mega churches. They view them as being successful and something to imitate and duplicate. However, God’s Word doesn’t support this. We are to imitate Christ.

We are instructed to adopt the mind of Christ toward each other; giving to other what Christ has given to us – himself. We are to do nothing out of selfish ambition, greed or self-importance. We are to value others better than ourselves and remain humble about it. We ought not to imitate the world’s idea of servanthood and success but Christ’s example of humility, selflessness, sacrifice and love unto death.

Do for others what Christ did for you.

Divest of yourself and invest in others!

Imitate Christ!

Give Freely (Re-Blogged)

Written by Courtney Carver

Think back to a few months ago.

Mistletoe was everywhere, and all you wanted to do was love people and feed the world.

The holiday season inspires us to be more giving and loving. Some of us even promise ourselves to be more like our holiday selves all year long.

And then, sometime shortly after our New Year’s resolutions are forgotten, our volunteer work, and charitable contributions are reduced as life takes over.

Maybe you still give, but do you do it in the same way as you did in December? Are you as moved? Are you as compelled to help the helpless?

Adam from Man vs. Debt posed the following question: “Do you give to Panhandlers” and the comments (all 215 of them) were really interesting. Here are a few examples:

  • “In the US, I don’t give money to panhandlers. I just assume many of them are going to use it on drink and quite honestly, I don’t want to encourage more of them to hang out on street corners asking for money. Because I can’t assess their true “need” situation, I’m not comfortable giving them cash.”
  • If I have something to give – I give. I believe I’ve been blessed to be a blessing to others.
  • I am a very giving person but when it comes to pan handlers, I am not so giving. Not to say I don’t help any pan handlers, I just am very leery when they approach me. I feel most of the time they are lying about why they need the money. It just doesn’t fly with me. I also think many choose to live that way.

This mini-mission is not a question, or a command, but an invitation to give freely.

Let go of your need to decide who deserves what. That’s not your job, or responsibility. It feels good to give without judgment. Give your spare change to panhandlers, or a cup of coffee, or a meal. Keep snack packs and bottled water in your car to distribute when you have the opportunity. Make sandwiches and give them away to people in need at a park in your community.

Reasons people don’t give
  • They feel uncomfortable
  • They think the money will be used for drugs
  • They think people should help themselves
  • They think someone else will help
  • They are strapped financially
  • They think they are supporting homelessness

Instead of thinking, analyzing and judging, give what you can. Remember that many people asking us for help may not be able to navigate government programs for assistance. Most people standing by the side the road, or under a bridge did not choose this lifestyle because they are too lazy to work. There are mental, physical and social issues that stand between them and the life we might think they should lead.

You are not considering whether or not to sign over your 401K, give your home away or  sell your house and donate 1/2, so don’t put so much pressure on the decision. Remember, it’s an invitation. An invitation to brighten someone’s day, an invitation to judge less and give more.

If you give freely, you will not make someone an alcoholic, keep someone on the streets, or perpetuate homelessness. It may be a dollar to you, but be open to the possibility that you are giving one person hope with your contribution.

While I do give when I can, I don’t always carry extra to give away. I’ll be stocking up so I can always give freely. I’ve also created a business that will give freely. 50% of every sale, not profit, but every sale of my limited edition photography from One Million for Good will go to a good organization doing great things. You can nominate a charity that you support.

Do you give freely? Will you?

How committed are you?

2012  owpPSE CookinecutterWould you give up pursuing your own happiness (sexual, financial, material and career ambitions) for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Don’t lie! Many of you would like to think that you could give up your own ambitions for the sake of God but the truth of the matter is that your spirit may be willing but the flesh is weak.

You may think that this question is unfair but it is intended to make us examine our commitment to God and His Word.

Many, upon self-examination, are disqualified to respond to the question. We are disqualified whenever we insist upon practicing our religion rather than keeping God’s commandments. We are disqualified whenever we practice the pursuit of sexual fulfillment outside of the boundaries of holy matrimony. We are disqualified whenever we practice the pursuit of our own financial wellbeing at the expense of others. We are disqualified whenever we practice ignoring the needs of others when it is in our power to give assistance. We are disqualified whenever we have too much wealth while someone else has too little and we refuse to share.

The Bible Challenges and Instructs us to imitate Christ’s unselfish humility.

In the book of Philippians 2:1-8 we find Paul giving apostolic instructions to the church a Philippi to “have the mind of Christ. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. But rather, in humility, value others above yourselves. Imitate Christ by looking to the interests of others.” This is the challenge of every Christian.

Regardless of the countless millions who profess Jesus Christ as Lord and savior, not many are committed to imitating Jesus Christ’s selfless humility.

How committed are you?

REPENT!
