We often perceive reality through a world view, not our own.  We are daily fed the meat that sustains a fractured world seeking to foster rebellion with its Maker.

All the while, this world seeks to use us as brainwashed or heart-altered combatants that are ignorant of their impact.  Soldiers who destroy and then awaken . . . unashamed —

Is this even possible?

We are called to conformity at a bright and early age by the voice of reason – ever leading us away from independence and the freedom promised by our original Creator.

But, to hear God’s divine voice with clarity and retreat from the norm while seeking to lose oneself within the Creator . . . then that person sees with eyes of faith the burning bush, hears the temple-whisper, and feels the sting of Calvary’s drops.

That one becomes lost – but lost to the world’s rebellion.

That believer, in their search, finds more than can be described!

So, today seek the kingdom – first, last, and always; while desiring to conform to the Word that created the world.  The true rebellion is found in desiring humility and pursuing Holiness!

Much of mankind is in a no-holds-barred death-match with God (have you noticed?).

The infamous “they” have initiated this challenge by seeking to create an environment, or culture, or space, where God becomes completely irrelevant – in other words – dismissed as Creator, Guide, and Savior!  In this carnal-lunacy, many are fervently seeking to create man in their image.  Or better put, they are seeking to make man’s origin understandable, explainable – therefore robbing this incredible “God-moment” of all its Divinity.

By doing this they strive to quantify existence itself and more fully understand the deeper perplexing aspects of humankind.  They seek to remove any and all mystery – by making creation a cosmic accident.  We become the god who knows by killing God and therefore are free to create a society that allows us to be in absolute control!

No God, no morality!

This humanistic concept obliterates all boundaries.  We become free agents, so-to-speak, doing only what is best for ourselves and that which we care for!  If indeed man evolved, then he certainly devolves into nothing unique.  Just a cosmic hiccup that will one day cease to be.

But . . . if we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” . . . then every aspect of this creation – from the baby in the womb to the elderly drawing near the end – is unique!  Every breath, every life, every God-created person, is to be cherished by God’s redeemed moral agents.

I believe we are created by Christ, redeemed through Christ in order to serve Christ in bringing Christ to those who are Christless!

Interesting that the best idea man can come up with is primordial-ooze?

God’s idea . . . is you!

First, I would like to say thank you, Comite, for the wonderful out-pouring of generosity exhibited in your giving!  The items we collected will be a tremendous blessing for those who have lost almost everything.

All the supplies and the love offering collected were delivered this past Monday to a church who has been working hard in the community from the very moment the winds died down – West Pittman Baptist Church (Westville, FL).

They were overwhelmed by your willingness to give!  As your pastor, I was so very proud and blessed to be a part of this God-moment!

“Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor.”  Proverbs 22:9  NLT

“And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”  Acts of the Apostles 20:35  NLT

So, In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, may I impose upon you just a bit further?  We can do more! 

This morning, consider how God can use you and the blessings He has given you to help these in need!  Pray!  Give of your time, your goods, and your offering.  Perhaps God has laid it upon your heart to go and help – let us know.  We will be returning soon, and hopefully staying for several days, so if you can help, what a gift of love that will be!

Blessing those who have blessed us so much . . . what a wonderful way to serve our Lord!

Author Michale Horton wrote a book some years back that describes a Christless Christianity.  In this description he explores a religion in America that has become more therapeutic and salubrious rather than convicting or soul-changing.  Curative for the flesh perhaps (and that’s not a small thing) – but dangerous for the soul if that goal becomes the end game.

In our consumer-crazed society the church has found success in jettisoning the cross while embracing any “feel-good” system that will manufacture excitement, fill pews, and sellout arenas.  After all, Christianity is big business in our culture – with huge purchasing power.

Ok.  Point?

According to a recent Barna poll, 78% of evangelicals questioned agreed with the statement, that Jesus was the first, most majestic being, created by God!  If that’s not horrifying – then I’ve done a poor job!

We seem to be . . . perhaps, using an incorrect system of measurement for growth.  A Christless Christianity is an oxymoron!

I do sincerely hope you feel good today – and that we as a church helped with that feeling.  But more, I pray, through God the Holy Spirit, that you are forever changed today – whatever that takes!!!

“And He said to all, ‘If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.’”  Luke 9:23 ESV

Be like God The Son, Jesus!

ON THAT DAY PDF Print E-mail

“‘On the day when I act, you will tread upon the wicked as if they were dust under your feet,’ says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.”   Malachi 4:3

The promise within this teaching is just this:  wickedness will not endure.  Those who oppose holiness and righteousness – who oppose God Himself – will discover that the end will be sudden and abrupt.

There is a symmetry contained here within this teaching.  The believer of this prophecy is promised that they will tread upon the wicked as dust and in a sense this means that all wickedness – unrighteous acts – will be tread underfoot as well.  There will come a day that when one breathes, they breathe holiness!

May I suggest that the proper definition of holiness is . . . “You!”  More precisely, you filled with God’s Divine presence.  You become Holy, you “be holy” when your heart is suddenly and violently occupied by the Spirit of God.  In this moment you become God’s excavator – treading down wickedness in your path as if it were dust beneath you feet.

“On that day . . .” you become God’s cry to the world – and if you’ve noticed, the world desperately needs to hear your voice.
