“According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.”
1 Corinthians 3:10
Brothers and Sisters there are many Foundations, there are many Life Styles Built there on and there are Choices To The Foundations, the Life Styles that are Built. I know many can say, “…My Foundation is Christ…” but is it?
“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.”
I am using this Scripture only to show that everything that we Do and Say will be Balanced according to God’s Scale, according to The Foundation that the Apostles and Prophets have laid only According To Jesus who is the Start of the Foundation, that is, the Chief Corner Stone.
Now to those who are not builders, you need to Understand what it means to be the Chief Corner Stone. Did you know that every Structure no matter what Country or Origin, All Structures have a Starting Point. From that One Point everything else is Based upon it. If it is Level, then the Whole Foundation will be as Level as The Chief Corner Stone…as long as…the Chief Corner Stone is Always the Focal Point to the Rest Of The Foundation. In order to do this the Foundation that is being built After The Chief Corner Stone is Always being Measured Against the Chief Corner Stone to make sure that the Foundation is Level and Sure.
This Same Process deals with Your Foundation in Life. It is not good enough that Jesus is Savior…there is more to it. A Transformation HAS TO TAKE PLACE in Your Life, a New Foundation MUST be built according to The Chief Corner Stone. So, Understand what has Transpired, the First Apostles and Prophets Of Old Built A Foundation dealing with Life according to God, Jesus being The Chief Corner Stone. Now, in order for this take place, to make sure that The Foundation is Correct, then this Process also Must Take Place, that is, for Every Step, for Every Word, for Every Object Of Life, for Every Event it has to be Weighed Against The Chief Corner Stone. This is How the Foundation has been built.
“19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone]; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
I will only cover this once in this message for clarity. The Apostles and Prophets of today are NOT the same as when with Jesus, but the ones today are NOT BUILDING A NEW FOUNDATION or I should say they are not supposed be, but what they are for today is to ENSURE that Jesus IS THE CHIEF CORNER STONE and that THE ORIGINAL FOUNDATION is STILL TRUE TO JESUS. The Five Fold Ministry, Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher is the Governing Body of The Church that Jesus and ONLY Jesus can give, is for this reason…
“11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;”
This set of Scriptures are Non-Stopping but will be, or I should say Should Be, until Jesus comes back. The Five Ministries are to make sure that The Church Walks According To Jesus and the Original Foundation that has been laid and is Unmovable and will Not Change.
Now, back to Your Foundation…
Your Life, Every Word, Every Deed, Every Thought should be Weighed to God’s Holy Word which is The True Foundation. Now if this was Truly the case, then there would only be One Church, One Word, Multiple Factions in One Deed. Our Lives would Truly Reflect Jesus in Us and that we are Truly One Body.
So, in saying this, what has happened? The only thing that can cause Multiple Bibles, Multiple churches, Multiple Beliefs and Multiple Life Styles is Sin, that is, Disobedience!
“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.”
The Sin, the Disobedience is based on this Scripture, first verse…Unity Of The Spirit. Do you really think that the Divisions that exist are by One Spirit, that is, do you really think that Jesus, The Father and The Holy Spirit are really Divided? They ARE NOT, so therefore, the Problem Exist in Your Foundation…NOT GOD’S. God CANNOT BE DIVIDED!!!
The Simplicity Of Sin, in this case, “…I Agree to Disagree…”! What kind of answer is that!!! Show me that in God’s Holy Word!!! The Fact is this, Your Foundation is Not Built upon the Original Foundation, having Jesus as Your Chief Corner Stone of Your Life. But what you have done is to try to build a Foundation that YOU can fit God into…! WHAT!!! Who in the World told you that you can do that…Satan and Flesh!
It comes down to Choice, down to Obedience. If I am presented with a $100 bill from someone else, it then becomes a matter of me Taking It or Rejecting It, it really is that Simple. Likewise, if God’s Holy Word says that Adultery and Fornication is a Sin, and if you say you Belong to Jesus, that is, you are, Blood Bought and continue in that Sin, then your Foundation, your Structure is incorrect and You have become a Liar according to God’s Holy Word! But what happens is that You Justify your Foundation according to The World, using Ungodly Excuses.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;”
2 Timothy 4:3
“For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
2 Corinthians 10:12
What this is saying is that Your Foundation is Based upon those Who Likewise Agree with Your Sin or to those who will not confront your sin. It means, they are trying to find Justification To Their Sin to Live their Lives the way They Want to and not according to the Original Foundation, Jesus being The Chief Corner Stone!!! In the case of Adultery, Fornication, that is in this case of this message, here are the Excuses, “I do not…”, “I can not…”, “I will not…”, the Excuse, is “I…”, speaking of Your Foundation not God’s.
God, Jesus, is not going to have His Children, His Bride, Live In Sin to Accomplish Life, but instead will give you His Answer, which is based on The Original Foundation, on What To Do and How To Do It His Way…NOT YOUR WAY or The WORLDS or SATANS!!! If you think that You Cannot, but God says otherwise, then where does the problem arise? If you weigh Your Life, Your Foundation based on the World, you will Lose every time, either in the short run or in the long run. Sin has a Price and it is Death and it will be Death To God’s Foundation In YOUR LIFE.
“For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
“14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
Your Foundation will be Judged, that is, All that You Do and Say will be on a Balanced Scale with God’s Holy Word being the Greater Weight.
“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
“11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”
1 Corinthians 3:11-15
Brothers and Sisters, make sure that Your Foundation is Truly built upon the Apostle’s and Prophets, Jesus being The Chief Corner Stone. Do not Weigh Your Beliefs, Your Doctrine, according to the World, according to Denominational Disbeliefs or Denominational Doctrine. We have only One Foundation, only One Lord Jesus that we Must Weigh everything against, Jesus has not Changed since the Foundation Of The World and will not Change At The End Of The World, His Word, His Judgement is Forever!!!
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
What is Your Foundation…
You cannot say it is Jesus and Continue In Sin!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
