Bad Choices
Series: 2022

We make many choices every day

Some good and some bad

 
Moses was given instructions

Sometimes choices are made because we have no guidance

Sometimes we choose to go against the guidance

Why would Moses, someone who saw God’s miracles, choose to go against God?

Why would we make that same choice?

Sometimes choices really have no consequence, but sometimes they have major consequences

Any choice to willfully go against God is a bad choice

Every bad choice has bad consequences

Moses’ consequence

Even choices we make out of ignorance can be bad choices

It is our responsibility to be educated so we can make good choices

God will never steer us wrong!

Moses’ choice cost him the opportunity to enter into the promised land

God did, however, forgive him

Our sinful choices today do cause us to bear the consequences on this earth

God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness still offers us an eternity in heaven

Do you have the assurance of that today?

    Bible Study – Voices Of Jesus
    Series: 2022
     
    Introduction:
    The Lord speaks to men today through the Word. He also speaks to the believer's heart by the Holy Spirit. We will take a brief look at some of the voices of Jesus as found in the Word.
    • I. The Shepherd's Voice -- Follow Me
        • A. The Sheep follow Him John 10:27
        • B. Follow Him and not walk in darkness John 8:12
            • 1. To follow Jesus expresses a union of the two, you and Christ 2. To follow Jesus shows that you are united or "hooked together" with Him 3. To follow Jesus is to go the same way as He goes
        • C. Follow Him and be a fisher of men Matt. 4:19
        • D. Follow Jesus and take up your Cross
            • 1. Die to the importance of self 2. Put the Lord first in your life every moment of every day 3. Make Christ the number #1 priority in your living; serving; and giving
    • II. The Master's Voice
        • A. Occupy till I Come Luke 19 :13
            • 1. here in Luke 19:13, it means "trade ye" or "gain your living" until He returns.
            • 2. Work, or do our daily tasks and jobs until He comes; work for the Lord till He comes again.
        • B. Jesus IS coming again in Glory
            • 1. We don't know when -- He is on HIS timetable
            • 2. Let's be ready for His coming; looking; working; serving; not giving up and not giving in.
    • III. The Savior's Voice
        • A. Come unto Me Matthew 11:28 This basically means to "come here and follow" it is a command of the Lord Jesus Christ.
        • B. We are to give our burdens to the Lord; Cast your care upon Him
        • C. To come to Jesus and follow Him brings rest
            • 1. rest here means "refreshment"
            • 2. the word "rest" as used here is NOT a rest from work but a REST IN WORK. This refers to the harmonious working of will; heart; imagination; conscience;
            • 3. As we work (labor) for the Lord, He will refresh us as we come and follow Him.
    • IV. The Teachers Voice
        • A. Learn of Me Matt. 11:29 let us be meek and lowly (humble) so that we can be teachable
        • B. Take His yoke upon you; this tells us that we should team up with Christ and submit to His authority.
        • C. We are to follow Christ's example I Peter 2:21-22
    • V. The Voice of the Bridegroom
        • A. The bridegroom has the Bride John 3:28-30
            • 1. the saved belong to the Lord
            • 2. we were bought with a price, the precious blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary.
        • B. He (the Bridegroom-Jesus) must increase in our lives vs 29-30
            • 1. We need more of Christ and less of self in our lives
            • 2. We need more of what He wants for us and less of what we want for us
            • 3. When we give Jesus His rightful place in our lives, He blesses us more and more.
    • VI. The Voice of the Friend
        • A. I will sup with him Revelation 3:20 The word "sup" here means spiritual communion between Christ and you.
        • B. The True Friend knocks and offers help; encouragement and fellowship
        • C. Notice the context here:
            • 1. We have a local Church that has shut Christ out. They may have their traditions; pageantry; ceremonies; etc. but not Christ nor His power. Therefore, they are a powerless congregation just going through the motions of "religion."
            • 2. Jesus is knocking at the door of a local church and, as a "Friend", offers to come in "if" any man (just one person) will hear the Lord and open the door to the Lord.
            • 3. This shows the love; mercy; and grace of the Lord as well as His patience toward mankind.
    • VII. The Voice of the Physician
        • A. Christ makes one whole John 5:5-6
        • B. He heals the brokenhearted Luke 4:18
            • 1. sometimes we think of a physical healing; but there is the "spiritual healing" or the "mending" that is needed in a person's life after a heart - breaking experience.
            • 2. Let Christ heal you spiritually and do not dwell on the problems; give them to Christ by casting ALL of your care upon Him. I Peter 5:7
            • 3. Remember wounds take time to heal and Jesus, the Great Physician, heals broken hearts.
    Conclusion: Continue to follow His voice. Read the Word and see what the Lord has for you. Allow your self to "Grow" spiritually. Learn and follow the Lord. Read the Word daily; pray daily; tell others what Jesus has done for you. Invite friends and relatives to become believers. Turn to Him in every aspect of your life and share with Him every problem and concern in your life. Make Him a part of your life on a daily basis.

    Knowledge Is Painful
    Series: 2022

    I don’t mean that knowledge makes your head hurt

    Ignorance is bliss!

    "I know best how to take care of me"

    Solomon was the wisest man in the world

    In all his exploration and wisdom, he found, that with man, everything is striving after the wind

    Our own knowledge tells us without God it is impossible

    It is painful for us to believe we can’t do it alone

    As far back as Adam and Eve, man has sought knowledge

    If we could go back, before all this knowledge, wouldn’t that be great?

    The true knowledge comes from God

    Are you ready to seek true knowledge?

    Wandering In The Wilderness
    Series: 2022

    How did they get here?

    Sometimes, as believers, we may feel that way.
     

    The possibility of something so much better just seemed to hard.

    No one said following God was going to be easy!

    The intercessor
    Vs 19

    God forgives, but blessings are lost

    Believers today are wandering in the wilderness because of disobedience
     

    God’s people were continually complaining against the very one that gave them freedom

    Believers today, who are blessed beyond measure, do exactly the same thing
     

    They could have had so much

    Where are we today?

    Do you fully trust God?

    Children Are A Gift
    Series: 2022

    Children are a Gift from God

    Children come with responsibilities

     
    These responsibilities are given to us by the creator that gave us the children

    God’s word is the instructions for the training

    Children need instruction and discipline

    Correction is instruction

    The greatest joy a parent can have

     
    Children are a gift and a responsibility and the greatest thing we can do is love them
     
    The greatest act of loving a child is to pray for them daily

    There is only one way for a parent to love their children, they have to first love God

    Mark 4:35-41
    35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
     
    36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
     
    37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
     
    38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
     
    39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
     
    40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
     
    41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?(KJV)

    Evil
    Series: 2022

    Evil is everywhere in this world today, and probably nowhere more prevalent than the United States

    It has become so commonplace, most people don’t even flinch when they encounter it anymore

    If I were the Devil...

    This was a piece that Paul Harvey read on the air in 1965

    WOW, he was right on target with how the devil was making our country his playground

    We see exactly what you are talking about but what can we do about it?

    That’s the thing, evil has become so prevalent that people feel as if nothing can be done.

    I am going to read another letter to you this morning

    These are the very instructions for how to deal with the evil in the world today

    We are in the end times and we do not know the day or the hour of Christ return

    One of the most important things we can do today is;
    1 Thessalonians 5:22NASB

    We are usually pretty good with what we would consider the big things

    Murder, Burglary, Assault….you know all the big things

    But what about other stuff

    We invite evil into our hearts on a daily basis

    We have TV shows and movies that glorify evil

    We go to movies that are even called Horror movies and pay to open our hearts to evil

    We read books that are all about evil

    You see instead of abstaining from evil or fleeing from evil we invite it in

    The “we” I’m talking about here is not the lost world but people who call themselves believers

    God’s people have got to wake up and realize that the toxic things of the world are exactly that, TOXIC

    We know that judgement day is coming and instead of remaining vigilant and watchful we practice evil ourselves

    I work for the NWS and their job is to keep the people safe by warning them of incoming bad weather

    What if the NWS decided to just keep all the info to themselves and not put out the warnings. People would die!

    If God’s people who know what is coming do not tell others, people don’t just die.

    They spend an eternity in a devil's hell in eternal torment

    Stop entertaining evil and instead pray without ceasing!

    Sound the alarm and tell people how they can be saved!

    Do you know Jesus?
