imgresSundays title in this weeks Sabbath school lesson, My friends, three words become our hope for we were all “sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore, very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more.

Then our Farther in heaven heard our despairing cry, and then from a manger sent “Immanuel to the rescue” who lifted up all who believed , now safe am  I.” My friends focus on our world today and compare the abomination of sin towards God that has increased for the last six thousand years to the “domino theory.”

Now let’s place that theory in the context of sin. The theory says that one particular sin will precipitate similar sins in progression one after another and once it starts if we are not allowing the power of God’s Spirit to take full control.

And we are not allowing self to die daily as be begin to live our life through Christ then the sins of our life will increase each day with no check and balance because Satan will take each dominoes-300x225sin in our life farther and deeper than we could ever imagine.

My friends, the concept becomes very personal because it’s now about our choice to live or die as we look at our own lives and the sin theory and what will eventually precipitate if we have not invited Christ to take full control but have allowed the god of this world to dictate what is acceptable in God’s sight.

Now my friends let’s look deep within and ask ourselves how far are we willing to continue in sin, because one day God will say “it is finished” and sin just like domino’s, can’t go on forever. Remember the plan of Salvation begin when Immanuel came to rescue us from the enemy of God.

And it was all played out on Calvary and one day soon all sin will be eradicated and God will “come quickly: (and) blessed is he that keepeth the sayings in God’s word and one day God will say “he that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still.

And he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, [Immanuel will come to the rescue one last time] and [His] reward [will be] with me, to give every man and woman according as iSIN-e1343908924228-300x223their work shall be…..And blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” Rev 22:7-14 (KJV)

Now let’s ask ourselves, when this controversy ends, will we be on the right or wrong side of prophecy? or do we continue to tell ourselves  we’ve got time, as Satan convinces us his way is the right way.

But God’s word will be final and no one will be standing at the threshold of the promise land, legal pad in hand, giving out grades to enter God’s pures061 and holy kingdom? With the assurance as long as our grade level is above a C we can enter.

My friends, there will be only one grade to enter God’s kingdom and that grade comes from the blood of Jesus Christ that completely cleanses us of all sin in our life. Remember Grace is still abounding.

And God is still knocking, as our faith is being tested daily with the hope it produces endurance. as we let “that endurance finish its work in us so that we may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:3-4 (NIV)


Every excuse we may give as the reason we cannot serve Christ, was challenged and answered at Calvary.
