Living in the Last Days Part 3

ARE YOU RAPTURE READY? Matthew 24:39-44 (DIST) The Great Flood came without any signs, so, before the Judgment there will be a “Rapture” – without any signs . . . . The “Rapture” will be a blessing only for the born-again. Those who reject reality and therefore do not prepare to meet God will miss the “Rapture.” Jesus’s 4 Rapture Parables Faithful or Unfaithful Servants (Matt 24:44-51) Are you faithful to your kingdom assignment? This isn’t about doing “more,” it’s…

Doors Part 3

Doors Part 2

FOUR STAGES OF GOD’S INDIVIDUAL WILL Psalm 139:16 (NIV) Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. FINDING THE RIGHT DOOR God’s moral will (what God already revealed in the Bible). God’s sovereign will (what God is doing on the earth). God’s individual will (what God is doing in your life). FOUR STAGES OF GOD’S INDIVIDUAL WILL Step 1: The prompting of the Holy…

Doors Part 1

GOD’S OPEN DOOR Many of us know, deep down, that the life we are living is not the life we could be living. Psalm 139:16 (NIV) Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. What do you do when you know, “There is no way the life I’m living is the life God wrote for me.” Revelation 3:7-8 (NIV) What he [God] opens no…

When Jesus Says Thank You

When Jesus Says Thank You I want to thank those who are investing their time, talents, and treasure to help expand the kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is the realm in which God’s will is fulfilled. Today, I’m saying, “Thank You,” but one day you’ll hear Jesus Himself say, “Thank You!” 1 Timothy 6:18-19 (AMP) [Charge them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, ready to share [with others],…

Created to Worship

WHAT YOU WORSHIP YOU BECOME Romans 1:19-20 (LOVETT) God Himself has seen to it that evidence of His existence is plainly manifested to everyone . . . . They are revealed in the things He has made. Therefore no man has any excuse for failing to acknowledge Him . . . . Yet people have refused to acknowledge Him . . . . deliberately trading the truth about God for a lie, they offer their worship and service to created…

With Him, Without Him

WITH HIM, WITHOUT HIM Jesus died, was buried, and rose again so YOU could be WITH HIM always! 1 Peter 1:3 (NLT) All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation. Life is WAY better WITH Jesus! Romans 1:19-20 (LOVETT) The knowledge of God is readily discernible to the minds of all…

What Matters Most Part 3

OUR MISSION Philippians 1:9 (CP) This I pray: that your love [agape] may keep growing until you have such understanding and keen perception that you can sort out the truly important matters. Matthew 28:18-20 (TLB) Jesus told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and earth. Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and then teach these new…

Cry of the Martyrs Part 4

What is Still Not Surrendered? God NEVER asks something FROM you. God ONLY asks that which is FOR you. With God, it’s not about giving something up, it’s about gaining something better! THOSE WHO SURRENDER – Abraham Genesis 22:2-3 (CW) God said, “Take your son, the only one you have, the one you love so much, and go with him three days’ travel to Mount Moriah. There at the top of the mountain I want you to offer up Isaac…

Cry of the Martyrs Part 3

Who Am I Identifying With? Do I want to identify with those in persecution or their persecutors? If I keep my witness to myself, I’m identifying with persecutors. If I share Jesus today, I’m identifying with those in persecution. The church in persecution understands consistent faithfulness. Matthew 4:19 (NKJV) “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” . . . I will transform you into men who catch people for God. – TPT If we’re NOT catching people,…
