1. MAKE ROOM IN YOUR SCHEDULE
Matthew 7:24-25 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
Matthew 16:13-23 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades, will not overcome it.
Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.
Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Mark 4:24 Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given.
John 10:27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
I often say your answer is in the meeting…… JESUS BUILDS HIS CHURCH, that is where His presence is. In that place of praise, worship the preaching of the Word, the laying on of hands….
2. IMPLIMENT WHAT YOU ARE BEING TAUGHT
Matthew 7: 25 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
Matthew 7:26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
Matthew 7: 21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Luke 13:26 then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.’ 27 But He will say, ‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’ 28 There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth,
James 2:19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!
James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
2Tim 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.
1Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
2 Peter 3:3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts,
The storms of life come to everyone.
You are the determining factor of how you end up after the storm hits NOT GOD.
Deutoronomy 30: 19, 20 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
GROWING UP IN MY CHILDHOOD HOME……. Jesus was thought of at Christmas, Easter, funerals and weddings only.
We believed but did not practice faith. The bible calls this lawlessness, or a form of godliness. It wasn’t GODS FAULT we ended up living under the curse of sin and death. We practiced doing our own things, the storms of life hit hard !!!!
Mum turned to alcohol to dull her pain, ended up in a very nasty car accident that sent her to jail and hospital when I was 9 years old.
Dad to make money practiced growing drugs, selling and then eventually using, he….ended up in prison. When I was 20.
DOING THEIR OWN THING. Not taking heed to the sayings of Jesus. Having a form of godliness, but no power to live free from sin. BUT praise be to Jesus its never too late to repent while you are living on this earth. Before Dad passed, he was walking with the Lord, a brand new creation, born again and redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb. My mother turned her life to Jesus early on when visiting with late 1990’s. I love them both and am very proud of their decisions to follow Jesus with all their heart.
1 John 3: 8 For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO CHOOSE….. SITTING ON A FENCE THAT IS ELECTRIFIED
LIVE LIKE THE WORLD you get the reward of the world.
LIVE LIKE A BLOOD WASHED, SANCTIFIED, HOLY GHOST, FIRE POWERED, DEVIL STOMPING, YOLK DESTROYING BELIEVER and get the KINGDOM and eternal life with GOD.
