“But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.”
Brothers and Sisters where is The God whom you serve? What is His Name? How does He Provide? Too many of you rely on your Jobs, your Boss to give to you what you need. How many of you can Stand in that if you and your spouse had no job, no provision would turn to the World before you to Our God? Do We, Brothers and Sisters, do not have at our voice The Lord Jesus Ear? If so, then you have a problem if you are not Walking In Faith that Our God Provides.
Brothers and Sisters many of you say that you Walk In Faith, but yet Faith cannot be found. So, what has happened to The God whom you were Bought and Paid For With Blood? Did He fall off The Throne of Your Heart?
Now Scriptures tell us, that is, God tells us, that in order for me to be in Good Standing with My God, that I must Personally Approach God Believing that He Is The ALL OF ALL OF MY ALL!!!
“But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
So now comes the really, really hard question…are You Diligently Seeking Him? Let’s examine this word Diligently, and you take the Definition, The Meaning and put it on one side of a Scale and then put Your Life on the other, which weighs more or are they balanced?
Diligently Definition and Meaning are as follows: in a way that shows care and conscientiousness in one’s work or duties; constant in effort to accomplish something; attentive and persistent in doing anything: a diligent student. done or pursued with persevering attention; painstaking: a diligent search of the files; constant in effort to accomplish something; attentive and persistent in doing anything.
Many you have no clue in Your Actions and Your Words that they do not Present Faith, but the opposite. To some of you, you have Forgotten How To Serve Your God, How To Have A Relationship With Him. You Walk Presuming that no matter what you Do or Say, God Provides. Some of you have never been taught Whom God Is that you gave your Life to, so as the Blind lead the Blind, both fall into the ditch, then curse God for allowing such things to happen!
“For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which [be] the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.”
“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
There are some that Know God, have a Relationship With Him, that Walk In Obedience Through Love, an Example they are, but few follow them. We live in a Chaos Of Religion, Brother against Brother, and Sister against Sister, both believing they serve God. But, for me and my house, we serve only One God, One Word, One Spirit that has been since before the beginning of time.
“1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.”
“16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”
“Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond [nor] free: but Christ [is] all, and in all.”
The Lord Jesus took me to a Scripture to start this message about Samson, whom Our God Blessed, giving him Strength like no other. But in this one passage Samson speaks to God saying that you have brought me this far only to watch me die after being Obedient. Samson had just been in a battle, using the Jaw Bone of a Donkey to defeat thousands and he is now tired and thirsty. Having no water and feels like he is at Deaths Door, complains to God. But God…
“18 And he was sore athirst, and called on the LORD, and said, Thou hast given this great deliverance into the hand of thy servant: and now shall I die for thirst, and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised? 19 But God clave an hollow place that [was] in the jaw, and there came water thereout; and when he had drunk, his spirit came again, and he revived: wherefore he called the name thereof Enhakkore, which [is] in Lehi unto this day.”
(read all of chapter 15)
Samson’s Faith was Knowing His God, that Samson Recognized God in his Life to Overcome The World that surrounded him, Samson, had a Relationship With God.
Now there are two more elements that must accompany Faith to The God That Has Been Forgotten to make Him The God Of Your Faith To Remember. One is Works, the other is Obedience. Our Brother James says it the best, that if my Works to do Show My Faith, then, It Is DEAD FAITH, having no Fruit To Bear. But we must understand that a Relationship with God takes Three Elements, Faith, Works and Obedience, but yet there are four.
I must Have Faith that God, IS God IN, OVER and THROUGH MY ENTIRE LIFE! My Life MUST Show God IN ME, OVER ME and THROUGH ME!! When God SPEAKS, that I MUST SAY, YES and AMEN!!! The Fourth thing, Engulfs the other three, I MUST DILIGENTLY SEEK GOD…IN ALL THINGS THAT TOUCH MY LIFE!!!!
So, let us brake this down. I must First Accept Jesus AS LORD and SAVIOR, Second MY WORKS Must SHOW that Jesus HAS CHANGED MY LIFE, the Third is that When God SPEAKS, rather through His Word, His Spirit or Others By The Spirit, I MUST be Obedient and in order for these things to happen, I MUST Diligently SEEK…24/7, that is, All Day, Every Day, Year Round Non-Stop I Must Diligently Be In A Relationship With God!!!
“14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer [that is made] in this place.”
2 Chronicles 7:14-15
Let me tell you Why this message is The Forgotten God. Too many of you think, have been taught, that Once Saved Always Saved, that there is Nothing that can Separate you from God after Salvation…YOU are wrong. Sin has and will always Separate you from God, and Disobedience will always Separate you from God, for it is God who has Decreed this, not man, nor Satan. Too many think, or have been taught, that all I need to do is go to church every week, be holy, one day, two days a week and for some only certain times of the year and that you can Live Your Life however it Pleases You, regardless of what God Says. Too many of you think, or have been taught, that if We Read God’s Word every day that we are in good standing with God, but Reading DOES NOT SAVE YOU, nor DOES IT MAKE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. Too many of you think, have been taught, that All Things That APPEAR Good are from God, even though the Scriptures tell us that Satan can Appear As An Angel Of Light…Deceiving Us.
We, who are Blood Bought by Jesus, are to be a Peculiar People to the World, but yet here you are wanting to be Friends With The World moreso than with Jesus.
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Take a Consensus among yourselves, deciding… all matters of Life. You setup your Boards with Ungodly, Unholy people that Seek Not God, but their Own Affairs, dictating how God’s House should be or should not to be. The church today, is not The Church Of God, but is of a Social Gathering, doing things and then saying they do it because of Jesus, but yet Jesus is not found among them, but only there feel good spirit. How can you Do or Say you are doing something for Jesus when first of all He never told you to do it and secondly in whatever you are doing or saying Jesus is never mentioned, but instead you say “God Bless…”!
There are generations that are being led astray with Worldly Philosophies and naming them Godly by those who present themselves as the Examples To Live By! Too many are doing things because the Bible says to do so, not because of God Compelling You To Do So, that is, Living By The Spirit Of God!!! There are many sinners that follow the Bible in Corporate Teaching On Business Affairs and are going to Hell because there is No Relationship with Jesus. Before any say different, consider these Scriptures…
“21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
You can do many Wonderful Works, even using the Bible as a Guide and Jesus will count it as Iniquity and cast you into Hell. You must understand that is takes the Four Elements to be Acceptable To Jesus, that is, Faith, Works, Obedience and Diligently Seeking Him!!! It is Your Whole Life that is Required, not just a portion, not just what you decide to let go of, it must be Everything or Nothing!!!
“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
I put Jesus before all things in my Life, yes that means My Job, My Wife, My Children, My Friends and The World. Jesus is worthy of All Of My Life…He Paid For It…Didn’t He? As our Brother James said, I will Show You MY Life In Jesus, BY MY VERY WORKS THAT I DO AND SAY!!!
“18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
