The Word

The Word!

The single MOST IMPORTANT thing to the Follower of Christ. Why?

Hebrews 4:12 The Word of God is LIVING and ACTIVE and SHARPER than ANY two-edged sword, piercing as far as the division of SOUL and SPIRIT, of both JOINTS and MARROW, and able to JUDGE THE THOUGHTS and INTENTIONS of the HEART.

  • Jesus IS THE WORD!!! John 1:1

  • The Word is ALIVE when you SPEAK IT, angels harken to perform it. Psalm 103:20
  • God Watches OVER His Word to perform it. Isaiah 55:11
  • It KEEPS you from sinning! Psalm 119:11
  • It cleans your mind by washing it so that you’re sanctified. Eph. 5:26

The day is coming when the written Word will be removed. Amos 8:11

When THE WORD is removed the anti-christ will be revealed. 2 Thess. 2:7

Get into the Word! Trust the Word and NOT yourself. “But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew ALL men, and because He did not need anyone to testify concerning man, for He Himself knew what was in man.” John 2:24-25

Jesus made this statement; Luke 18:7-8 NOW, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? V.8 I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, WILL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?”

How does FAITH COME? By hearing and hearing and hearing the Word of Christ everyday. NOT HAVING HEARD!!!

Read it, Speak it, LIVE IT!!!! The time is coming quickly when people will NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE and will want to have their ears tickled with preachers who will ONLY PREACH what is convenient and easy on their ears. Beware of this kind of teaching! IF THE TEACHING of Christ does NOT convict you and CHALLENGE you then IT’S NOT THE GOSPEL of Christ!  It’s time for the Body of Christ to grow to FULL MATURITY! 

 

It’s time to Raise the Standard

As I was thinking about what to share today, I began to think about the Moral decline in this Nation and the world. I believe it’s because the true Light is not shining anymore. We have a form of godliness but deny it’s power. (2 Tim.3:5)

It’s time to raise the Standard. The Standard of the Cross.

The emblem of the Cross that Jesus died on has been taken down from churches all over the Nation. Why, you might ask? Because satan himself has deceived God’s people into believing that it would draw more people into the church if we looked just like them, because they wouldn’t be offended at the Cross, but the truth is, it’s causes them to become undisciplined in the things of God. LAZY; LUKEWARM Christians.

The truth is that the Cross has this certain convicting power when you look at it, it is a statement all by itself, that says Jesus died on that Cross for my sins. It is truly a Universal symbol, everyone around the world knows what that means. Jesus said, “if I be lifted up I will draw all men unto Me.” The Cross that Jesus died on and the Blood that He shed for our sins needs to be in our messages from the pulpits across America! NO ONE can be saved WITHOUT the Blood and the Cross of Jesus Christ.

The Standard of MORAL excellence has declined and needs to be RAISED in the church. (Beginning with us).

Moral means concern with the principles of right and wrong behavior and the goodness or badness of human character.

Synonyms: Virtuous, good, righteous, upright, upstanding, principled, honorable, honest, just, noble, incorruptible, scrupulous, respectable, decent, clean-living, law-abiding.

“A Moral man” 

God IS all of these attributes and much more. I think as the body of Christ we have somehow lost sight of this. When I was a little girl I KNEW, God was holy. I didn’t want to offend Him, it didn’t keep me from sinning, because I wasn’t completely given to Him, but everytime I was at church I would go to the alter and cry.

I was instructed to teach God’s people righteousness. I told the Lord, “That’s all TALL order God.” As you probably guessed He’s not concerned about my comments He just wants my obedience.

We have the command made sure in Mark 16:15-18

and He said to them, “GOD into ALL the world and preach the gospel to ALL creation.”

V.16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

V.17 These SIGNS WILL ACCOMPANY those who have BELIEVE: IN MY NAME they WLL cast out demons, they WILL speak with new tongues;

V.18 The WILL pick up serpents and if they drink ANY deadly poison, it WILL NOT hurt them; they will lay ands on the sick and they WILL recover.

In verse 20 He promises that He will work with the Word by SIGNS that follow.
