AnnaProphetess“And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. 38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem.” Luke 2:36-38 (NKJV)

Anna a prophetess of God. In her youth had only seven years of marital bliss and then came a broken heart due to the death of her husband, but she did not “sorrow as others who have no hope.” For she studied the scriptures and believed the Messiah would come one day, so she did not sit about in self pity bemoaning her tragedy, but decided to dedicate he life to serving God.

And now at 84 years old her focus was forever on the coming Messiah. In addition, forever serving God with fasting and prayers night and day. My friends what a testimony to the one who serves God night and day and is forever in His presence. The necessities of life that we take for granted was not a problem for her because God was her everything “He’s [was her] joy in sorrow He [was her] hope for tomorrow, He [was her] rock in a weary land and a shelter in the time of storm”

In addition, She never stop praising God and because she was daily in His presence, she had no doubt when she saw the baby Jesus who He was. And she was Forever a light to all who came into the temple in the midst of their storm as they also looked with great hope and imagesanticipation for Israel’s Redeemer. So today my friends there can be no doubt if you are a child of God that our “Redeemer lives, and one day he will stand upon the earth again.

“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” 1 Thess. 4:16-18 (NKJV)

But like Anna the prophetess are we telling everyone that will listen that our redeemer cometh a second time and “His reward is with Him, and He will give to each person according to what they have done. [for He is]the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. ”Rev. 22:12-13 (NKJV)

lincolnspeechIn a speech made in 1863, Abraham Lincoln said, “We have been the receipients of the choicest bounties of heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prospertiy; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God.

We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.”

Now Lets move the clock forward 150 years later to April 18, 2015 and ask ourselves has anything changed? My friends Christ needs workers He needs each of us to make a commitment to give it all to Him like Anna the prophetess as we tell the world the good news that our savior will return one day and there is hope for everyone, because He will save all who believes in His name, Jesus Christ.

iStock_000026151595SmallThe mental faculty by which we  deliberately choose or decides upon a Plan for our life is usually placed into what the world calls a financial portfolio, which are the total holdings of our most valuable assets and securities that we have accumulated; 401k, stocks, bonds. money market, real state, etc. So my friends what about our spiritual holdings and securities as it relates to our salvation?

What are our most valuable assets spiritually, or do we have any? Or have we become bankrupt spiritually do to the fact we have allowed this world to dictate to us how we will spend eternity? God has created a glorious universe, images from the Hubble telescope reveal awesome galaxies and planets that goes beyond what man can see without it.

Have you sometimes gone out at night and envisioned, where does it all end? Oh the astronomical phenomena that limits our imagination by time and space, yet we all have a desire to understand what is out there.

Even as a child of God, we cannot begin to explain, what is beyond what man can see with his eyes. But what we do know is that God has planned for the redeemed a place “eye has not seen and ear has not heard, andspace249-galaxy_68416_600x450 which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Cor. 2:9 (NASB)

But the question we must ask ourselves, do we have the faith to include the promises of God into our Spiritual Portfolio? Each of us as candidates for God’s pure and holy kingdom need to remember, God will not force us to Choose His Spiritual advice of How we will spend Eternity over Satan’s advice that leads to perdition.

Remember Satan has a legal claim to our mind and body because of the choices we have made that allows him to be our master. John 1:12 (KJV) tells us “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” So if I understand that text correctly my faith in a Crucified Savior gives me the right to be a Child of God. and spend eternity in His pure and holy kingdom.

Oh what love, that He would give such a right to a wretched sinner like you and I, and then through our faith, if we do allow Christ and His Spirit to take total control of all matters relating to our Salvation, then it will be our responsibility to “go into all the world” and inform others of the good news of Christ soon return.

6082_pSQHZk3vMy friends as we follow the word of God we should understand that Satan’s motives are only to keep us blinded with what this world, which is bound for perdition deems is right and acceptable. 2 Corinthians 4:4 tells us “whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe…” “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

What a Portfolio for His Children. walk in the Spirit, submit to God and “take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” As I read the Word of God I can see that if we just follow a step by step course of action that our Savior has laid out for us, Salvation and life eternal will be ours.

And When Christ enters those clouds for a second time, with no reservation we can be assured, He will say to the faithful who has endured and allowed their portfolio to be washed in the saving blood of Christ “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”

“A nominal faith in Christ, which accepts Him merely as the Saviour of the world, can never bring healing to the soul. The faith that is unto salvation is not a mere intellectual assent to jesushealingthe truth. He who waits for entire knowledge before he will exercise faith, cannot receive blessing from God.

It is not enough to believe about Christ; we must believe in Him. The only faith that will benefit us is that which embraces Him as a personal Saviour; which appropriates His merits to ourselves. Many hold faith as an opinion. Saving faith is a transaction by which those who receive Christ join themselves in covenant relation with God.

Genuine faith is life. A living faith means an increase of vigor, a confiding trust, by which the soul becomes a conquering power. ” (E. G. White, Desire of Ages, The Touch Of Faith) And behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment.

For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath madedo-you-hold-the-right-hand-of-jesus-300x198 thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. Matthew 9:20-22 (KJV) Whenever we speak of this Bible Story, we usually deal with the healing aspect of the story instead of the power of Jesus Christ to save the sinner sinking deep in sin.

Let’s not miss the message of Christ actions by focusing only on the miracle of healing and not on the Saving Grace of the Master and all He is willing and able to do for us. Often when Jesus healed in the gospels, He told the person that was healed not to tell anyone. It was not because He was trying to hide the power of His miracles, but He knew the need of our focus to be on His name, and journey to Calvary.

Twelve years of constant blood flow. What physical strength the woman with the issue of blood must have endured to get to the Master, exhausted and smothered by the crowd, oh the desperation just to touch the hem of His garment. My friends, how desperate and with what passion are we willing to be made hold and not just physical but most of all spiritual, by a simple touch?

The lady with the issue of blood told herself “If I may but touch his garment, I shall be made whole” reaching, crawling, hyperventilating just for a simple touch. Oh what passion as she reached out her hand and touched His garment as He passed. That was all it took my friends. She did not have to have some long psychological analysis of how she got to that point; were you abused as a child, did you live in a two parent home.

Were you discriminated against as a child. None of these questions needed answering only her faith because she knew the power of her Savior, because once we seek Christ, we know images33when you have entered His presence, because then we realize “what a friend we have in Jesus” because we than know “He, has searched us and knows us.

He knows when we sit down and when we rise up; He understand our thoughts from afar. He scrutinizes our path and our lying down, and He is intimately acquainted with all our ways. Even before there is a word on our tongue. Behold, O Lord, You know it all. Ps. 139:1-4 (NASB)

And from that point she or any of His children, once we enter  into His presence, than all we need from that point on is faith and the endurance to reach out to Him and not let go until we have been healed by the blood of Jesus Christ that takes away the sins of the world.

hqdefault“I am available to you lord!!” Those Six words gives our Master the full assurance that we are His and that we are willing to “lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, [so now with nothing to hinder us, we can] run with endurance the race that is set before us [by God].” Heb. 12:1 (KJV) Webster tells us being available; is “being ready for use; of use or service; at hand,” at all times.

My friends we cannot pick and choose when we are available to serve Christ, when He calls we must be ready to Serve. Once again let’s use Christ disciples as an example “And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.

Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.” Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.” Matt. 4:18-22 (NKJV)

In addition, the disciples recognized the presence and authority of what had been missing out of their lives, until Christ said follow me. Did you also notice there was no debate over the01-300x270 legitimacy of the one asking. We are living at a time in our world today where people are searching for answers, because they can see the world’s only concern is materialism; consumerism, and individualism.

Also a total departure from any and all religious, principles. But my friends, there are still many  souls that  recognize these are “perilous times, where men and women are lovers of their own selves; covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, and trucebreakers.

Also, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” 2 Tim. 3:1-4 (KJV) And as Christians if we have not allowed self to die in Christ and made ourselves available to His will for our lives, we will also take on these same attributes brought on by  Satan that only lead to destruction.

So today, we must tell the world that Satan is a defeated foe, that is what Calvary was all about. And now we all must remove every weight and the sin in our lives as we create a path that leads to Christ and life eternal so when Christ calls we will be prepared to serve. We cannot continue to sit on the side lines with the hope that things will get better, prophecy tells us they want.

images9So today let’s give it all to the Master and make ourselves available “for The Spirit of the Lord God is upon [His Children], Because the Lord has anointed [us] To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent [us] to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord……So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified..” Isaiah 61:1-3 (NASB)

So my friends “let’s give back to Christ, all the tools He has given to us. Our hands, our ears, our voice, our eyes, so He can use them as He please. So let’s empty out our cup, so that He can fill it up, now we are  free, and more available to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Today we will focus on Christ disciples, future ambassadors of this church we hold so dear. They were witnesses to Christ power as He cleanse the leper, spoke the words that healed the James_Tissot_Could_Ye_Not_Watch_With_Me_One_Hour_525Centurions servant of palsy, cast out demons and raised Lazarus from the dead.

But their faith was still shattered when they allowed Satan to find an entry way into their lives. And it all plays out for His chosen in this generation so we can fully understand the power of Satan and why we must seek the presence of Christ Daily, and if we don’t, like His disciples we will also forsake Christ when He needs us the most “for such a time as this.”

Christ knew the faith of His disciples would be shattered and their path would be difficult, because they did not fully understand the power of Satan, so they choose to sleep instead of pray. As Christ was about to face Calvary “He went to the Mount of Olives, His disciples followed, when they arrived, Christ ask them to “Pray that you may not enter into temptation” as he went about a stones throw away to pray Himself.

Luke tells us, “He prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, Jesus-Christ-Praying-Wallpapers-16-300x225exhausted from sorrow He asked. “Why are you sleeping?” rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.” Luke 22:36-46 (NKJV) and that my friends is the question we must ask ourselves “Why are we sleeping?”

Have we spent so much time with Christ throughout our life, Satan’s power no longer has any effect on us? Can we look at our life today and say with full assurance our Savior can brag on us like He did Job? When He ask Satan; “Have you considered My Faithful Children below who forever spends their time in my presence, there is none like him or her on the earth, a blameless and upright man and woman , one who fears God and shuns evil?”

Remember because of the power of Christ prayer life and His study of the word and His relationship with His father, He was able to calm a raging storm on the Sea of Galilee totally composed and undisturbed, He faced demonic hostility, temptation’s from Satan at every step, and the cross examination of Jerusalem’s religious Elect with total restraint.

Christ is our example my friends, He stayed focused and was able to bear His cross on Calvary, what about our Cross? Once again we must ask ourselves “why are we sleeping”  Christ constant contact with His Father especially before He went to Calvary should let us know the importance of prayer.

60sec17The disciples spent 3-1/2 years in the presence of Christ and still, at that particular time they were unprepared for what was about to take place, they did not recognize the importance of staying awoke when He needed them the most. My friends, what are we doing each day, are we unprepared for what is about to take place in the final pages of this life’s history.

Remember Christ is mediating and advocating on our behalf before His Father right now. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” 2 Cor. 5:10 (NIV)

“To every soul who will suffer with Him in resistance of sin, in labor for His cause, in self-denial for the good of others, He promises a part in the eternal reward of the righteous. Through the exercise of the spirit that characterized His lifework, we are to become partakers of His nature. Partaking in this life of sacrifice for the sake of others, we shall share with Him in the life to come the “far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” (E. G. White R. & H., Sept. 28, 1911).

RH-EveTemptation2And fallacies is a deceptive, misleading, or false notion, that Satan creates from within “Eve really believed the words of Satan, but her belief did not save her from the penalty of sin. She disbelieved the words of God, and this was what led to her fall. In the judgment men will not be condemned because they conscientiously believed a lie, but because they did not believe the truth, because they neglected the opportunity of learning what is truth.”(E.G. White  Patriarchs and Prophets pp 55)

And Jesus tells us “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 (NKJV) So our passion my friends, must be to seek that truth with all of our heart and soul and it begins with our faith in God. “And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.”

Up to this point Eve’s faith in God’s word allowed her to live a life that was centered around her faith in the promises of God’s law of love which is a “transcript of His character” and His wiliness to give our first parents all of their needs through their faith and not the Fallacies of the god of this world that desired only to end the peace and happiness our first parents were accustomed too.

So he gave Eve an alternative, which was contradictory to her faith in God. “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be likeForbidden-Fruit God, knowing good and evil. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate.

She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; Gen. 3:4-7 (NKJV) and thus, sin entered the world because of the unbelief of our first parents in God’s word.

In addition, 6,000 years later, we have mankind, who because of the first Adams fall, have been redeemed by the second Adam, Jesus Christ “And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.

”The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is tumblr_mlrwjyBzgw1rgtq41o1_500-300x222the Lord from heaven…… And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.” [if we believe] 1 Cor.15:45-49 (NKJV)

My friends, the direction we are going and whether we finish this journey, is all about holding on to our Faith in God because “without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 (ESV)

In addition, at times “we doubt [God’s] goodness, we doubt [His] love as if every promise from [His] word is not enough and all the while, He hear’s each desperate plea and long that we’d have faith to believe. ‘Cause what if His blessings come through rain drops What if His healing comes through tears,

what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know [He’s] near, What if the trials of this life are [His] mercies in disguise” (Laura Story, Blessings) My friends remember “this world is not our permanent home; [we must have a passion to] keep looking forward [through our faith] to a home yet to come.”Heb. 13:14 (NLT)

danielpraying1“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-3 (KJV)

”perfect result, complete, lacking in nothing,” those words tells us that our faith is “steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.” Before Christ comes for the second time, our eternal destination will have to be based totally on our faith and endurance. Let’s go to Daniel chapter 6 and see how one of God’s faithful in that generation handled a situation where it was all about his faith in his God.

“Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before. Then these men went as a group and found Daniel praying and asking God for help.” Daniel 6:10-11 (KJV)

if we go back to the beginning of chapter 6, Daniel has been appointed satrap or governor of one of the provinces under the ancient Persian monarchy. Then in verse 3 it tells us “Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.”

Then the chapter goes on to tells us; the other satraps attempted to find some fault with Daniel, in other words they were jealous and prejudice; this alien outsider, how dare the king put him in suchimages a prestigious position. So they set out to find a loophole to trap Daniel, so their conclusion; we will never be able to find any fault with Daniel, so they decide to go after the God he serves and how Daniel serves Him.

But not fully understanding, as God’s representative, the light from the living God Daniel serves, shines through Daniel, out to the world. So if they can find no fault in Daniel, how could they ever think they would fine any fault in the Creator of the universe. My friends, does the world know our God through us if not, why not?

And does He live within us to such a point that it becomes obvious that no one “shall separate us from the love of Christ [and His will for us? not tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword………..and in all these things we [have become more] than conquerors through [our faith in]him that loved us? Romans 8:35-37 (KJV)

The plot thickens, the other governors devised a plan to get the death penalty for Daniel, But God’s chosen never changed his routine so he continued, three times a day praying with his window open so all could see. So the other governors get their wish.

daniel7779999But Daniel’s light from God, did shine onto the king because of His relationship with him, and  he tells Daniel “Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.” not He might deliver you, but He will deliver you. Oh yes my friends, he believed in the true God and what He was capable of doing. What a testimony to the one who serves God and let’s “His light so shine that others may see Christ in him.

Daniel spends the night in the lions den and in the morning, the king hurried to the lions’den. He calls Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?” Daniel answered, “God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions.

They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight.” And then at the king’s command, the men who had falsely accused Daniel were brought in and thrown into the lions’ den, along with their wives and children. And before they reached the floor of the den, the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.”

My friends, it all comes down to, do we have the passion and endurance to dare to be a Daniel in the 21st century and have the perfect result, complete, lacking in nothing, as we carry our cross while following Christ wherever He leads us.

And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Luke 10:2 (ESV)

laborers-for-the-harvestMy friends, once again let’s make it personal and ask ourselves the question, what is holding me back from responding to Christ plea to go feed my sheep? For “the harvest is plentiful,” but the workers are few” Remember we are His chosen generation “for such a time as this” and God expects us to go and give the good news of His gospel, that Jesus saves and He will return soon.

So why do we wait, Christ is not going to wait until we buy our new home, or get out of school, or get married, all of that is secondary to what He needs accomplished right now. So we must be willing today to get out among His harvest and saturate it with his love and kindness.

For “we are bidden to go forth as Christ’s messengers, to teach, instruct, and persuade men and women, to urge upon their attention the word of life. And to us also the assurance of Christ’s abiding presence is given. Whatever the difficulties with which we may have to contend, whatever the trials we may have to endure, the gracious promise is always ours, “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

“Evangelism, the very heart of Christianity, is the theme of primary importance to those called to herald god’s last warning to a doomed world. we are in time’s closing hours, and the 1202961_82629406[good news of God’s] message, proclaimed to make ready a people prepared for our lord’s return, must swell to a loud cry reaching the uttermost parts of the earth” (E. G. White Evangelism pp 5,15)

My friends, learning to clearly distinguish God’s voice as the prophets of old would probably guarantee most of the world an easy path to Gods pure and holy kingdom. But God has ask His chosen to be His voice to the world. But in order for us to actually hear God’s voice telling us to go feed my flock, we must recognize it. Jesus said, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27 (KJV)

Those who hear God’s voice are those who walk in the footsteps of God, and who have been saved by the transforming power of His love and grace through faith. These are the sheep who hear and recognize His voice, who come when He calls and are ready to respond to whatever situation, or circumstances our Savior places us in to carry out His mandate to a world that has lost its spiritual compass.

spiritofgraceEach day we must ask not my will but thou will be done and every day we must place ourselves in a position to hear His voice and respond to Him telling us to carry our cross and follow Him “for the harvest is plentiful” But my friends we will never be able too respond to God’s voice, if the god of this world has captured our attention.

For we cannot serve “two masters; for either we will hate the one and love the other, or else we will be loyal to the one and despise the other.” Luke 16:13 (NKJV) So, the more time we spend intimately with God and His Word, the easier it is to hear His voice and His leading in our lives from what the forces of evil is telling us to do or not do.

In addition, as God’s chosen, we should be so familiar with God’s Word, and voice that when God does say go, there is no reservation that it is God telling  His son and daughter “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; [and one day soon] I will put you in charge of many things in my kingdom”

full_logo_001-registered“Cancer develops when cells in one part of our body begins to grow out of control. Once a person reaches maturity, cells in most parts of the body divide only to replace worn out or dying cells.

Because cancer cells continue to grow and divide, they are different from normal cells; instead of dying, they outlive normal cells and continue to form new abnormal cells often travelng to other parts of the body where they begin to grow and replace normal tissue. These cancer cells, if they are not entirely eradicated, will continue to multiply and will eventually kill the patient.”

So it is with the sin in our lives if it is not completely eradicated, it will eventually lead to death. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of Godimages10 is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Rom. 6:23 (NKJV) Which tells us, if we have faith and believe in Christ Jesus, we have become “a new creation, The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Cor.5:17 (ESV)

My friends our minds and bodies have been renewed through Christ we were once lost because of the cancer of sin, but because of  God’s amazing grace and what was done for humanity on Calvary we now live new lives, our sins have become eradicated through the blood of Christ and our Faith in that blood cleansing us from our sins.

Consistent with this, “when the heart yields to the influence of the Spirit of God, the conscience will be quickened, and the sinner will discern something of the depth and sacredness of God’s holy law.” John 1:9 (KJV) states The “Light, which lighteth every man [and woman] that cometh into the world, illumines the secret chambers of the soul, and the hidden things of darkness are made manifest.”

“Conviction takes hold upon the mind and heart. The sinner has a sense of the righteousness of Jehovah and feels the terror of appearing, in his own guilt and uncleanness, before the Searcher of hearts. He sees the love of God, the beauty of holiness, the joy of purity; he longs to be cleansed and to be restored to communion with Heaven.”(E. G. White Steps to Christ, p. 24.)

tumblr_mlrwjyBzgw1rgtq41o1_500-300x222One of the greatest gifts God has given man among many is the ability for His Spirit to completely eradicate our connection to anything that “conform to the pattern of this world, but [through our faith we will] be transformed by the renewing of our mind. [and] then [we] will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Rom 12:2 (NIV)

In addition, it will than lead us to Repentance and Restoration of our lives as we began to make a 180 degree turn around, not 360. For 360 only tells our savior I have tried your way, but now I am returning back to the forces of evil because I have not allowed you to completely cut out the cancer of this world in my life. My friends today search you heart from within, what are we allowing to destroy what is the pure and holy will of God.

So today, search from within what are we allowing to destroy what is pure and holy in our lives, is it gossip, is it the time we spend in front of our TV and not the word of God, is it our lying, or stealing, or covertness, or adultery, or have we decided to replace the true and living God with other gods, or is it simply our “socially acceptable sins” whatever it is my friends “choose you this day whom you will serve” for our lives depend on the choice we make.

We gradually lose the strength and beauty that is temporary so we’ll be sure to concentrate on the strength and beauty that is forever.”

And that my friends just about sums it up, as a youth coming up, life was not complicated so we took it for granted as if there was no end in sight, then one day we woke up from our dream and realized how susceptible to being wounded and hurt in this controversy between good and evil, we really were.

So then we “turned our eyes upon Jesus and Look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth [that we thought we could not do without suddenly] grew strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace. in addition, for most baby boomers life has been a journey that has been a quandary of twist and turns like the clay in the potter hand.

“Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something on the wheel. But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade itPotters-Hands into another vessel, as it pleased the potter to make. Jer. 18:3-4 (NASB) and like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are each of our Characters in the hands of our Savior.

But thank God, the Potter continued to transform our characters, as He prepares us for the challenges that we will encounter on this Journey He has placed us on. Remember  we are all a part of a larger plan, a chosen generation that our Savior has chosen “for such a time as this” right before He comes a second time.

Yes the generation that were a part of the golden age of the fifties, sixties and seventies, where moral authority and discipline disintegrated or became extent; as the marriage vows became obsolete all together; while the relaxation of censorship in books, TV, music, and the media and gay liberation became the norm.

Forbidden-FruitSo now we enter 2015 and the world that our generation provided the forbidden fruit that developed House wives of Atlanta, Empire, Scandal, Dancing with the stars, Kanye West, JZ, and the acceptance of  marriage vows between man and man and woman and woman, God is asking us to finish His mandate.

Yes the generation that  has seen it go from Luci and Ricky Ricardo sleeping in separate beds, to the level of sin like it was before the flood when God looked at the world and “saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.” Gen 6:5-6 (KJV)

So today if we accept God’s challenge to go into all the world with the good news of the gospel, we cannot allow Satan to intimidate usimgres2 into thinking the millennium generation or the baby boomers or any other generation is a lost generation, because what I do know through Gods word is Jesus Christ died for all generations.

So today the challenge is for us who have come through this war and have learned to carry the entire armor of Christ because we understand more than ever before ‘that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Eph. 6:12 (NKJV) to follow Christ wherever He leads.

In addition,  like our Savior we must never lose focus. Remember we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that [we] should shew forth [to all the world] the praises of him who hath called [us] out of darkness into his marvellous light. 1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)
