He’s Calling For You

He’s Calling For You

January 2, 2022

Mark 10:46-52  And they came to Jericho. And as He was going out from Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road.  And when he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”  And many were sternly telling him to be quiet, but he kept crying out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”  And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him here.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take Courage, Arise! HE IS CALLING FOR YOU.”  And casting aside his cloak, ..he jumped up, and came to Jesus.  And answering him, Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” And the blind man said to Him, “Rabbi, I want to regain my sight!”  And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road.

Note the difference between Religion and Jesus: Bartimaeus’ cries irritated the people, but not Jesus.

And Jesus Passed through Jericho — He walked in and walked out without anyone stopping Him, not one reported miraculous encounter until Bartimaeus cried out...

”Love Manifest!”

”Love Manifest!”

December 19, 2021

2Tim. 1:10 (GOD’s purpose and grace) has now been MANIFEST by the appearing of our Savior, Jesus Christ, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 

When the Heavens broke open over the manger where Jesus lay, and the angels filled the night sky in celebration, they proclaimed, Unto YOU is born this day, in the City of David, a Savior who is Christ the LORD!

When I think of Christmas I think of… 

  • Goodness Triumphing
  • Truth Prevailing
  • Hope Paying Off
  • Promises Delivered

I think of every reason for despair, cynicism, and hopelessness being ransacked by Love Manifest!

What is Truth?

What is Truth?

October 17, 2021

John 18:36-38 Jesus replied, “My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my servants would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish authorities. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.” Pilate said to Jesus, Then You are a King? Jesus answered, You say it! [You speak correctly!] For I am a King. [Certainly I am a King!] For this reason I was born, and for this reason I came into the world, to TESTIFY to the Truth. Everyone who is of the Truth [who is a friend of the Truth, who belongs to the Truth] hears and listens to My voice. And Pilate said to Him, WHAT IS TRUTH?

Here We Are.  America has pulled the pin from the grenade, and I hope we haven’t tossed away the pin yet.

Progressive Faith - Part 4

October 3, 2021

By faith Moses, when he was come to years (grew up), refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect for the recompense of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them. By faith they passed through the Red sea as if by dry land: which the Egyptians attempting to do were drowned. —Heb. 11:24-29

The Faith of one man allowed GOD to advanced an entire race of people.  The desperate needs of people may touch GOD’s heart, but it’s Progressive Faith that moves Him to deliver.

More than a Fisherman

More than a Fisherman

September 5, 2021

Mark 1:17 Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will turn you into fishers of people.”

 

In this message, More Than A Fisherman, we’re going to see, in the life of Peter, how GOD desires to raise us up to become much more than we are; making us Ambassadors of His Kingdom upon the earth.  So you must understand that when Jesus relates with you you He sees More Than A Fisherman.

“The Lord Shall Raise Up A Standard”

“The Lord Shall Raise Up A Standard”

October 25, 2020

Is. 59:19b  When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up A STANDARD against him. 

Satan has come into America like a flood.

Flood-Attacks differs from frontal attacks in that they spread everywhere, forcefully entering where they don’t belong, disrupting & destroying everything.  They have the potential to sweep away everything and leave communities uninhabitable.  Like a flooding river, bursting its levees and overflowing its banks, spirits of rebellion, perversion, and lying accusation are sweeping through our communities, schools, and governments, and rearranging the landscape of our society.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD-14 “Pursue and Recover”

THE KINGDOM OF GOD-14 “Pursue and Recover”

October 18, 2020

1Sam. 30:1-8 NOW WHEN David and his men came home to Ziklag on the third day, they found that the Amalekites had made a raid on the South (the Negeb) and on Ziklag, and had struck Ziklag and burned it with fire,  And had taken the women and all who were there, both great and small, captive. They killed no one, but carried them off and went on their way.  So David and his men came to the town, and behold, it was burned, and their wives and sons and daughters were taken captive.   Then David and the men with him lifted up their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep.  David’s two wives also had been taken captive, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess and Abigail, the widow of Nabal the Carmelite.  David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.  Then David said to the priest Abiathar son of Ahimelech, “Bring me the ephod.” So Abiathar brought the ephod to David.  And David inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue this band of raiders? Shall I overtake them? The Lord answered him, PURSE, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail RECOVER ALL.

When the eternal arch enemies of GOD raid His people’s communities, rob their possessions, and enslave their families, GOD has a plan for them to RECOVER ALL...PURSUE!

“The Strength Of Prayer”

“The Strength Of Prayer”

October 11, 2020

James 5:13-18  Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises.  Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.  Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.  Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.  Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years!  Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops. 

When everything else is weak you can have The STRENGTH Of PRAYER.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD-13 “Jesus’ Message To The World”

THE KINGDOM OF GOD-13 “Jesus’ Message To The World”

Luke 4:43 He said to them, I must preach the good news of the KINGDOM of GOD to the other cities [and towns] also, for I was sent for this purpose.

Luke 9:60 But Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but as for you, go and proclaim the KINGDOM of GOD.”

What was Jesus’ message to the world?  

  • You must be Born-Again?
  • Love One Another?
  • Put GOD first?
  • Treat others as yourself?
  • Forgiveness?
  • Heaven?

“Strong Grace”

“Strong Grace”

September 27, 2020

2Tim. 2:1-4 So you, my child, be STRONG in the GRACE that is in Christ Jesus.  And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful people who will be able to teach others also. (in other words, Make disciples who can make disciples.)

As I consider this verse against the backdrop of our present society I realize how much we’re beginning to have in common with the early Church.  What a precise balance we must hold, walking through such a hostile world as Ambassadors of Christ, helping Hostiles become Disciples.  We must thread the Dual Horizons of Judgment against sin and Mercy for sinners. SO HOW DO WE, amidst the rising lawlessness keep from being pushed  by anger into Offense, or pulled by sympathy into Compromise.  With each passing day it’s becoming more evident that only the narrow way of Jesus’ cross can prevent us from swerving over one cliff or the other.  What does it take to stay on that path?  It takes being Strong in Grace!

What is Grace?  

  • Permission to Come
  • Power to Change
  • GOD is Working Here!

September 20, 2020

2Cor. 5:20 We are AMBASSADORS for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We plead with you on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God!

An Ambassador isn’t a Religious, but a Governmental Appointment.  As Ambassadors of Christ, we’re not representing ourselves, or our own personal relationship with Him.  But we are Representing the Government of His K’dom.  In order to fulfill your call you must understand your Assignment.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD-11 “Kingdom vs Religion”

THE KINGDOM OF GOD-11 “Kingdom vs Religion”

September 13, 2020

Matt. 4:17  From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

When Christ came into the world He didn’t bring a Religion to earth, but a Government.  Throughout His ministry, Jesus made it clear that His mission was to install the KOG in people’s hearts

Lk. 8:1 Jesus preached the Good News of the KOG from town to town

Lk. 9:11 Jesus spoke with the multitudes about the KOG

Lk. 9:32 Don’t be afraid Little Flock, because your Heavenly Father is happy to give you the K’dom

Lk. 12:31 Jesus said, Seek 1st the KOG and everything else will be provided

Lk. 22:29  Jesus told His disciples, I confer upon you a K’dom, just as the Father has upon Me.

Jesus was announced as a King at His birth.   And tried as a King at His crucifixion.

The KOG isn’t a religion, it’s a government.

“The Beautiful Paradox”

“The Beautiful Paradox”

September 6, 2020

2Cor. 4:6-7 For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.  We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like FRAGILE CLAY JARS containing this GREAT TREASURE. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. 

This picture of our lives as Fragile Jars of Clay containing the Perfect Eternal Light of Jesus is what’s known as a PARADOX.

A simple definition for Paradox would be: A great truth expressed in contradictory terms. 

Think about it…

  • We see the unseen
  • We have Freedom in His Yoke
  • We reign when we serve
  • We’re lifted up when we humble ourselves
  • We win by yielding
  • Giving is getting
  • Dying is living
  • And the boundless Kingdom of Heaven lies within our finite souls
