Seek the Lord
Prayer is how we exercise our faith in God, Hebrews 11:6. We go to God in prayer with confidence in his power to supply all that we need. For God is in control of all things, he along is all knowing, nothing can escape his supreme rule. As we seek God through the word and commune with him in prayer, we discover the will of God. For our Father knows how to give good things to them that ask him, Matthew7:11.
Let us therefore trust in the fact that God is “a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Prayer is the principle way in which we seek the Lord. Life can be understood has a prayer for good or evil. We communicate to God in the life we live not only in word but in deed. We can choose to seek the will of God in all that we do or we can seek to please ourselves. The choices we make go up before God and they speak much louder than words. In this way our lives are understood to be a prayer for good or evil.
Our greatest challenge is to hear and to respond to the voice of God. The word of God is the voice of God. “All scripture is given by the inspiration of God,” 2 Timothy 3:16. The word inspiration is defined in the Greek as divine breathe of God. The breathe of God is the voice of life and power. For Jesus hath said “the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life,” John 6:63.
The prophet is pleading with the people of Israel to seek the Lord, Isaiah 55:6-7. There is a call to forsake two things, there wicked ways and there unrighteous thoughts. A man’s manner of life is determined by his thoughts; wicked behavior is the consequence of wicked thinking. The wicked can be transformed into the righteous, by the renewing of the mind in the word of God. To renew, it means to make new over and over again. Daily we seek the Lord in offering ourselves to the transforming power of the renewed mind in the word of God.

                                    Freedom from Sin
The power of the indwelling Christ gives one the strength to withstand and overcome the trials and tribulation of life. We have this power in Christ as joint heirs by the blood of Jesus. Therefore sin shall not rule nor have power over you. We are made free from sin to serve God in holiness unto everlasting life. All of our labor in holiness is the gift of God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 6:22”But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.” A man or woman who yields their life to God, who surrender all, who give up all, who make no place in their life for sin, darkness, or ungodliness, who sanctify and make room in their heart for Jesus.. For you are his possession, you are his prize; you are created his handy work to glorify God in righteousness and true holiness.
Christ sinless life qualified him to be mediator of the New Testament. His death is payment for every sin. The death of Christ has put into affect the New Covenant with all of its blessing as well as the promise of eternal life, Hebrews 9:14-16. It was God working in Christ to reconcile man back to himself. Through the blood of his Son the spirit of God has brought freedom from sin to every believer.
The truth that God spoke became flesh and he dwelt among us. The record states that the disciples handle him and knew him in an intimate way. Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth, 1 Peter 2:22. He was not a deceiver of any kind. He spoke the words of life, and ministered. He brought to mankind a New Covenant. He put the New Covenant into effect by his death, and brought to all eternal life.
We look now for the day when Jesus shall appear a second time, not to suffer the pain of death, never again to be offered as a sacrifice for the sins of this present world. But we look to him who shall appear again to judge this world with a righteous indignation. We look to him who shall appear with healing in his wings. He shall appear to set all things right. The wicked shall cease from troubling. The weary shall be at rest. The crooked shall be made straight. Every valley shall be exalted and the glory of the Lord shall declare it and all flesh shall see it, Isaiah 40:4-5. In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, praise and honor and glory to our Lord.

                                    Freedom from Sin
Romans 6:1-2 is the text of the message. It is not the will of God that we continue in sin. In verse 2 we find “dead to sin”. Until death happens sin is still alive, has long has a person yields oneself to do the work of evil. This is not the plan of God that people live day by day, year after year under the bondage of sin. Jesus came and shed his blood from a cross that we might be free from sin. This is the gospel that preaches freedom from sin. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” John 8:32.
The freedom that comes in Christ Jesus is right now as a result of what Calvary means to every believer. Jesus has paid the ransom for sin with his own blood, that we might have freedom from its bondage and dominion. Freedom from that old taskmaster that Adam became enslaved to, as a result of what Jesus has done, we no longer have to live in sin. The work of Jesus is real, salvation is real. If anyone will repent it means to turn and go a different way. Jesus as made it possible for us an opportunity to turn from death to life, from darkness to light, from a life of misery to a life of love and righteousness in Christ Jesus.
“Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God,” Romans 5:13. The word yield means to surrender to. To stop the power of sin is to give up anything that is contrary to the word of God. To open ones heart to Jesus by giving up the life of sin. There must be complete surrender to the Lordship of Christ. Each of us must make a choice today to surrender everything to Jesus.
Many are willing to give up a certain part of their lives to God. But this is not the way to true holiness. To give God a little of your money or a little of your time is not what holiness is. All of life must be made Holy unto God. We cannot offer to God bits and pieces of life, time out for giving place to the devil by keeping a closet for sin, a nest of ungodliness as a token of the old life. When the Spirit of knowledge reveals to you what it is that God is calling for you to give up, then you ought to give it up. Because today is the day of salvation and when you hear his voice tugging and pulling at your heart harden not your heart. For today is the day of salvation, tomorrow is not promised. Satan is fighting a war of death and he desires to have you locked in your grave. But if you just heed to the master’s voice today, right now you can have life instead of death. You must dethrone and denounce sin in every way in order to know everlasting life.

                                The New World Order
The wine of fornication is not merely physical fornication but the writer is speaking to us in regards to spiritual fornication which is unfaithfulness to God. Fornication is when one has sex outside of marriage which is unfaithfulness to the law of God, because sex is a holy act between man and a woman within marriage. Fornication is unfaithfulness to God by becoming involved in alternatives to the word of God. The great harlot comes with an alternative that is a different way to what God has shown in his word to be true. Many have looked upon this harlot and her alternative lifestyle, her pleasures which last only for a season.
Revelation 21:1 we find the new world order. It is not the kind of order that will be instituted by neither military regime of the nations nor Kings of this world. This is a new world order that was instituted on Calvary’s cross. One day long ago when Jesus shed his blood. By his blood we have received his spirit. In to his Kingdom you cannot be voted in you must be born again born of the spirit, born of the water, born of the word, born of the Lord Jesus Christ. We must receive the spirit of our Lord Jesus into our hearts the presence of God dwelling on the inside an everlasting habitation. We have received eternity into our hearts by knowing the love, joy and salvation of God.
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away;” Revelation 21:1. We can live in this blessed assurance that one day the nations of this world will pass away. Babylon will fall in a day the city will be demised in one great moment. When we look around and see so much trouble in the land. We can look within and know that there is hope. The judgment of God is sure no evil doer will go unpunished on the day of reckoning.
There are many ways in which the systems of this world will fail you. Religious, Political, Commercial systems will fail you but the word of God will never fail you because it is impossible for God to lie. Every promise that he has made will be fulfilled when we see Jesus. Faith will no longer be hope but faith will be by sight for we shall see him just has he is. Every prayer will be answered. Every sermon will be understood. Every mystery will be open and fulfilled. When I see Jesus he will wipe away all tears from my eyes.
“There will be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” Revelation 21:4-5. Your faith must stand in the Lord Jesus for in him we have a blessed hope. For in him we can look forward to a New World Order. This present world is going to be done away whit in a twinkling of an eye. We shall appear in his likeness, glory and the unity of Christ. The bride of Christ shall stand with the bridegroom and we shall be like him in every way.
In the mist of all the trails and tribulation that we encounter we can look to the book of Revelation and there we find the plan of God. The word of God has said I am true and I am faithful, therefore we must not be fearful or doubtful but always know that God is true and faithful what he has promised he will perform.

                                The New World Order
Revelation 18:2 “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”We look to the book of Revelation to find God’s judgment and grace according to his plan. We find that God will judge the wicked and God will ultimately deliver the saints. In Revelation 18:2 Babylon represents the corrupt systems of the world be it religious, political or commercial. Babylon is doom to fall this is God’s judgment. We look at how the nations of the world such as the Kings and merchants of the earth have made themselves rich by whole heartily committing to a system of greed and oppression.
John gives us a vision of Babylon falling. In the day of the Lord the fall and collapse of evil as we know it the Prince of this world will come to an end. Jesus and the saints of the ages will come and put an end to this world’s system. You look at the world and think that they have it made there is so much happiness, and big spending, big names and fame. All of this is going to fall and come to an untimely end. For God along knows when the last day shall be when the trump shall sound and the dead in Christ shall rise.
Verse 3 “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication,” The writer uses the metaphor drunk to show that the world leaders of all the nations have been overcome by the defilement of sin and corruption that Satan as instituted in the systems of the world through greed and oppression. The nations of the world have sold themselves out to the Prince of this world and have become drunk. To be drunk is to become over powered by the influence of a drug. If we look around at the world today it has been over powered by the influence of Satan and his devises.

                                Balaam the Soothsayer
Balaam will once again seek to curse Israel by way of enchantments. God would use this evil plot to show forth his glory by letting Balaam go along with the men of Moab. God reveals to Balaam that he will speak only what God says.
God is angry with Balaam. To deliberately disobey God always puts one under the wrath of God. The judgment of God is always against sin. Has Balaam is going whit the princes the angel of the Lord stood in the way for an adversary against him, Numbers 22:22. God opened the eyes of the donkey that Balaam was riding to see the angel standing in the way with his sword drawn. The donkey turned and ran in a different direction. God will allow strange things to happen in order to open one’s eyes to the danger of sin.
God is angry with Balaam but the love of God is always greater than the wrath of God. This is why the eyes of the donkey are open to see the danger in the person of an angel with his sword drawn. Here it is that God is showing Balaam mercy through the eyes of a donkey. Balaam can repent and chose to go a different way. Divine intervention makes this possible.
God goes on to even open the mouth of the donkey so that the donkey can speak. Through this miraculous event Balaam repents, Numbers 22:34. Just has the donkey would speak by the power of God; Balaam would become an instrument in the hands of God saying only what God would allow him to say. We can praise God because the devils reach has been limited by God. No matter what it is that Satan has design against us God will turn it around for our good.

Balaam the Soothsayer
The children of Israel are dwelling in the plains of Moab, because of victories that God hath given them. Balak the King of Moab looked out on Israel and saw that their numbers were very great. So Balak sought out the counsel of the leaders to war against Israel, Numbers 22:4. He sent messengers unto Balaam to curse the people. Who is Balaam? Some believe that Balaam is a Prophet but no were in the Book of numbers is Balaam called a Prophet. In the book of Joshua Balaam is called a soothsayer, Joshua 13:22.
The King is hiring a Soothsayer to curse the children of Israel, Numbers 22:7. Balaam will consent to this work of divination. The scripture is very clear about what Balaam is being hired to do. Right to this very day people will send you money to have you say what they want to hear. A true Prophet cannot be hired to say what you want to hear. Every Soothsayer has his price but the Man of God is not for sale.
Balaam the Soothsayer is going to attempt to curse the children of Israel but God answers Balaam with a question, “What men are these with thee”? God is pointing out to Balaam by way of a question that he is running with the wrong crowd. God goes on to say that Balaam is not to go with these men, and tells him not to curse the children of Israel for they are blessed.
Now Balaam will not be receiving the money because he sends the men back to their King without cursing the children of Israel nor would Balaam go with the messengers to meet King Balak. However, the King is determine to get the services of Balaam the Soothsayer, so he sends princes with more money and the promise of a political promotion of honor. Balaam proves that he’s in this for the money and the promotion of himself because he knows what the will of God is in respect to cursing the children of Israel, Numbers 22:18. The love of money is the root of all evil, 1 Timothy 6:10. If Balaam had true love for God that was above money or position he would not be a Soothsayer, he would be a child of God who would stand for what was right in the sight of God even unto to death.

                         The Will of God among the Least
If we look to the love of God and not our ability to conceive or understand we will find in his strength and love complete sufficiency. The will of God is manifested in the least and among the weak. Our veal of weakness is just right for God. “The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7. God is interested in directing one’s life into a walk by faith that leads to fulfill his will. If we are directed by God the appearance of outward circumstance will not control what we do. The word of God is greater than anything we face. David appeared to be the weakest and most unlikely of all his brothers to be anointed King. Everybody looked upon David as a mere shepherd boy. But God saw in the heart of David one who would be King, 1 Samuel 16: 5-13.
God is looking at the heart. The outward is a manifestation of the inward. All things have been created by the word of God. The word of God is Spirit,” it is the spirit that quickeneth and maketh new the flesh profiteth nothing,” John 6:63. If we can connect with the regenerating power that has brought all things into being, the power that works according to the controlling purpose the will of God. If we walk in humility God will use us for his glory. We are never along for the power of God is strength that only heaven can give.
The Lord looks on the heart. It is out of a pure heart that faith comes alive. It is in the heart that one made right with God. It is in the heart that the anointing comes to break every yoke. If the heart is right and the motivation is pure God will be with us. Let us not be discouraged by our outward circumstance or controlled by the things we see. But let us be controlled by the word of God. For the word of God is greater than anything we face. His word brings to us all we need in this present world.
Remember everybody saw David as nothing more than a shepherd boy but God saw into the heart of David one who would be King. It’s not what man sees but it is what God sees, the will of God is all that matters. May the will of God be done in your life.

                         The Will of God among the Least
Jesus put forth many mysteries that spoke of the hidden treasure that is of the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is where the will of God is manifest as supreme rule. If the will of God is first in your life, in your heart than it is there you find the kingdom of heaven. A taste of heaven has come into our lives as a result of saying yes to the will of God. We have received the spirit with power to perform the will of God therefore we can pray “thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10. The kingdom of heaven is the will of God among believers the exercise of power with authority.
God is concern about everything that touches our lives. Many times we have neglected the ministry of small things. God is concern about the smallest acts of love which are the seeds of greatness in the Kingdom of God. Matthew 13:3 –32 the Kingdom of Heaven is liken unto a mustard seed, Jesus uses the parable to unveil this mystery to unlock the hidden truths of heaven these truths upon which God himself governs the universe. Jesus speaks of the mustard seed as one of the smallest seeds of the Plant Kingdom. But in one season it grows to be the greatest of all herbs and it looks to be the size of a tree. From a seed that is the smallest of all seeds God grows to become the greatest of all herbs.
By the grace of God the most humble and obscure life can be used to manifest the kingdom of God, small acts of kindness, small projects of love, small struggles for peace and justice. Here it is that we find the mustard seeds of change. You can make a different where you are if you allow the heaven that God has brought to rule in your life through faith by the mustard seeds of change. You will see the grace of God bring to pass great things that will stand as monuments because of the act of faith, trust and obedience to the written word of God.
God has chosen to change the world through the lowly. He has chosen the foolish things to confound the wise, the weak things to confound the mighty, that no flesh should glory, 1Corinthians 1:27-29. Certainly there are limits to what we can achieve but let us not dwell on the limits of flesh and blood. We must look to the grace of God for the Master summons all that stand idle “go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you.” Matthew 20:4. We have the providence of God if we trust him for all that we need.
We are veiled in weakness but the Lord assures us through his word that he is with us. We should not worry about temporal things because our father has opened his hand and satisfied the need of every living thing, Psalm 145:16. The challenge is for us to trust God and began to act from what we have no matter how small it is we must use it even if it is a mustard seed.
Let us look at this mystery of how God as chosen to manifest himself among the least those whom the world would look upon as foolish. Jesus being equal with God became a man and humbled himself; he was obedient even unto death on a cross, Philippians 2:5-8. This may seem foolish are weak but the world is forever changed because of what Jesus as done, we can appeal to the grace of God. It is still true today that God chooses to change the world through the lowly. If we will humble ourselves has servants in the master’s hand and allow God to fashion and form our lives we will find a glory and praise that goes forth as all men see your good works and glorify the father which is in heaven.
If we look to the love of God and not our ability to conceive or understand we will find in his strength and love complete sufficiency. The will of God is manifested in the least and among the weak. Our veal of weakness is just right for God. “The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7. God is i

                                 “Born Again”

Nicodemus is a Pharisee, a ruler of the Jews. He is one of the religious scholars of Jesus’ day. Nicodemus can very easily articulate theological law and moral virtue, but he can say nothing about the spirit. Nicodemus came to see Jesus by night to learn about this great mystery, to learn of the power to do miracles. No one was able to cause blinded eyes to open, turn water to wine, heal all manner of sickness and disease. Even the wind and the sea obey the command of Jesus.
The miracles of Jesus gave witness to the rule of God. The rule of God is the kingdom of God it is the power of God. Jesus said to Nicodemus “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” John 3:3. Nicodemus had seen Jesus do great and mighty things but Nicodemus’s Spiritual eyes would be open through a spiritual birth. Only by the spirit is it possible for a man to see and know God. Jesus made it very clear to Nicodemus before you can part-take of the Kingdom of God “you must be born again”.
Nicodemus could not understand what Jesus meant by being born again. Jesus told Nicodemus “Except a man be born of water and of spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God,” John 3:5. The water is symbolic to the word. For the word of God is like water to the soul. Water that flows from the throne of God into the depths of our being this water floods every desire and fills every need. This water is life to every thirty soul. It’s good to know that whosoever will come shall find in Jesus A fountain of living water and you can drink freely.
Jesus used the symbol of birth to be of the spirit. It is the spirit of the Lord that comes to take residence within the life of the believer. The spirit of Jesus is the abiding presence of God in power over sin, sickness and death. By the spirit we enter into the Kingdom of God to live in the power of miracles, signs and wonders. The spirit of the Lord is with us to teach all that is true, to reveal the will of God and give us power to perform it.

It is the work of the Comforter to reprove, John 16: 8-11. The word reprove comes from the root word prove. It is the Holy Spirit at work in our hearts to make clear to all what sin, righteousness and judgment is in this present world. If we yield ourselves to the teaching of God’s word we will understand his will for our lives.
When we yield ourselves we surrender everything to the rule of God’s word. The word of God is truth to build our lives upon. The Holy Spirit lives within every believer by faith in God’s word to teach us and lead us in all that is true, John 16:13. He brings a special kind of comfort to all that we do. This comfort is in the person of the Holy Spirit. He will make it clear to us what the will of God is.
The Comforter is the spirit of truth, John 16: 13. The work of the spirit is to guide, speak and show us things to come. If we seek the spirit’s guidance as Jesus said in his word “He will guide you”, “He will show you things to come”. If we go to the book of Acts 13:2 we find certain prophets and teachers seeking direction from God through much prayer, “As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them”. Acts 16:6-7 the Holy Ghost forbids Paul not to preach in Asia or Bithynia. By way of a vision Cornelius was instructed to go and meet with Peter and receive an out pouring of the Holy Ghost, Acts 10. It was through a vision Ananias was directed, by the spirit, to Paul so that he might receive his sight and be filled with the Holy Ghost, Acts 9:10-19.
We obey the word of God out of a sincere love for God. If we do what God says we bear witness of his love. The word of God is more precious than silver or gold. The word of God is the spirit of God. So, we love God has much as we love his word.
Jesus says to his disciples the father will give you “another Comforter”. Jesus was a very special comfort to the disciples in the face of every circumstance they knew that Jesus would be the answer. John 14:16 is a conversation of Jesus with his disciples in an effort to prepare them for his departure. Jesus says something very unique about the new comforter “the Comforter will abide with you forever”.
The Comforter is also called the spirit of truth. The Comforter is the person of God who not only comes from God to be with us but he is God within us. He is the ever abiding presence of God to aid the believer in wisdom and knowledge for every good work; just as the disciples turn to Jesus for everything, we to wait upon the spirit to lead us into all truth, to take complete control of our lives.
The Holy Spirit is a great source of Comfort to every believer. Jesus was about to leave his disciples and at the same time he says “I will come to you”. Jesus would forever abide with his disciples in the person of the Holy Spirit. Jesus offered himself up on a cross that we might receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. By this experience we can know God in a personal relationship in true guidance with glory and power.

Satanic attack is aimed at the word of God. But whatever God has said will come to pass. For God is too big of a God to lie. His resources are infinite and out of his infinite resources he gives and gives. And so it is that whatever God has said will come to pass. It is a small thing for God to bring forth his word. The word that God spoke to Jesus “this is my beloved Son” Matthew 3:17, Satan will challenge with “If thou be the Son of God” Matthew 4:3. His attack is at what God has already spoken to him. It is true that for a season the word is tried. Even as Joseph was tried in the prison, Genesis 39:20, but God had his time and his purpose. From out of the prison the King called Joseph to come forth and Joseph was made a Father to Pharaoh and a governor over all of the people of land of Egypt. Joseph believed in his heart that somehow in the midst of his personal trials God was working to bring good out of evil. We do not have to fear when evil comes our way because the goodness of God is greater than the evil we suffer.
Let us look at Matthew 4:5, we find that the devil has brought Jesus to the Holy city at the top of the temple. Notice, the devil has brought Jesus to church. The devil does not care about where he tries you, even if you are in the church house. Satan will not only use a holy place but he’ll use the word of God to serve his own purposes. Satan will always come up with something contrary to the word of God. Satan will use certain scripture out of context. However, the word of God will prove itself and expose Satan’s cleverness. Jesus defeated Satan by the word of God. Each time Jesus answered with “It is written” Matthew 4:4, 7, 10.
The final temptation in this chapter is when Satan shows Jesus all the Kingdoms of the world. Satan knows better than anybody what Jesus is here to do. Jesus is here to defeat the Prince of darkness. Jesus is here to dethrone him of all of his power and his glory. Satan congers up a plan and he is suggesting to Jesus that he does not have to go to the cross. Satan wants to make a deal. And he said unto him, “All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.” Matthew 4:9. Jesus lets Satan know I’m going to worship the Lord even if it means going to the cross. I’m going to worship and serve his purpose because it is my delight to do his will.
The devil leaves Jesus but he’ll be back to test his commitment, his dedication and consecration to the will of God. When you are tested remember: the devil is defeated because of the victory we have in Jesus. We stand in the Power of our Lord his victory is our victory.

The tempter comes to Jesus in the wilderness. The tempter came to Adam in a garden, a paradise, an oasis but Adam could not face the devil. But here we find Jesus in the wilderness. A wilderness is not an oasis it is not a place of abundance. The wilderness is a place of dyer need. It’s a place of drought. There are no trees there, no shade no life there, no running water there. It is on this territory that Satan makes his entry to try the Son of God. To try his commitment, to try the mountain top experience of Galilee to try that voice that said this is my beloved Son. He wants to try every promise and every purpose that God has ordained.
Jesus stands firmly in the face of the enemy because he stands on the word of God. We want to learn how to equip ourselves for the tempter because the test is going to come. Just as sure as the promise is going to be fulfilled, we are going to be tested. There is a prerequisite for every promise there is a conditioning process. We can stand in the grace of God and in the strength of his glory and overcome every trial.
After forty days of fasting Jesus hungred, Matthew 4:2. Satan is going to attack Jesus at his point of need which was food. The test of Satan is always at your point of need. What do you need? The test is will you move outside of God’s provision to supply that need or will you trust in the Lord in waiting for his timing. Will you orchestrate your own scheme to fulfill your need, or will you trust God to supply direction and purpose in the midst of your suffering.
Need represents suffering. Jesus is hungry and that desire is in him. But Jesus submitted his desires under the control of the word of God. It would have been an easy thing for Jesus to turn stones into bread. However, this was not what God had ordained for this time. He was led into the wilderness to be tempted. And he was led by the Spirit of God, by the word of God. Jesus submitted to this suffering, out of this suffering would come the glory of God. Out of this suffering would come the consummation of a ministry that would go on to win the world for the salvation and the emancipation of every lost Soul.
We learn from the sufferings of our Lord to align our desires and even our pain with the will of God. As we surrender all to God knowing that God in his time and purpose will meet every need. But it is important to know that the will of God is supreme, not my desires. What is God doing in my hunger, in my circumstance that will bring forth his glory? What is the will of God? The Spirit will lead and guide you but we must be willing to suffer. We must be willing to hear what the will of God is, if we are ever going to know his glory. Whatever we suffer it does not compare with the glory we have been brought into fellowship with.

Jesus in Matthew 3:17, is being baptized by John. From Galilee to Jordan, John is baptizing. It is here that Jesus appears and John sees Jesus. John sees in Jesus the Lamb of God. The Lamb of God who comes to take our place in suffering sin and death, the Lamb of God who is the sacrifice for every sin committed past, present and future. John sees in Jesus the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world that we might have life and have it more abundantly. John sees in the eyes of Jesus, he beholds the one who would baptize every believer in the Holy Ghost and that with fire. John sees in Jesus the salvation of all mankind, the redeemer of the lost soul.
As Jesus is coming to be baptized, John feels unworthy to baptize him. But Jesus humbles himself to be baptized by John. After Jesus is baptized, he comes forth out of the water the Holy Spirit descends upon him like a dove, the heavens opens and a voice specks “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased”, Matthew 3:17.
In chapter 4 of this narrative, Jesus at this point, is led into the wilderness to be tempted. The word tempted in the Greek means tested. For we know that God can tempt no man with evil because there is no evil in God. Evil is in our flesh, in our fallen nature, in our carnal thinking. Evil is in man but there is no evil in God. When we are tempted by temptation it is born out of our own fleshly desires. It is born out of our deceitful hearts.
To be tested is a divine appointment. To be tested of God is to be certified for a particular work, or ministry. To be tested is to go through a process that is ultimately intended to make you. Out of all of our testing we should be made better, stronger out of our trials and tribulations.
God speaks the word” this is my beloved son”, and he is led into the wilderness. All that Jesus receives on this day of great glory Satan would test. Whatever God has commissioned in your life the tempter comes to test. He will test your commitment, he will test your faith, he will test every promise that God has poured out into your life. Satan ultimately wants to test your relationship whit God, this is his target. Your born again experience is his target. Satan is the tempter but God knows just how much we can bear, the temptation as been tailored for each of us. Your trial may not be a trail for somebody else. Someone else’s trial could be something greater than you could ever bear but God knows each of us and for that reason the trail as to come through God. Certainly, it came from the devil but it had to come through God’s permission. In every trial God is whit us to provide a way of escape. The escape is his grace. We can always count on the grace of God to get us through whatever we are dealing whit. His grace is sufficient.
The tempter comes to Jesus in the wilderness. The tempter came to Adam in a garden, a paradise, an oasis but Adam could not face the devil. But here we find Jesus in the wilderness. A wilderness is not an oasis it is not a place of abundance. The wilderness is a place of dyer need. It’s a place of drought. There are no trees there, no shade no life there, no running water there. It is on this territory that Satan makes his entry to try the Son of God.

I challenge you today to walk in love, to speak in love, to live in love, to work in love. If you do that, you will persevere through the hardships of life. If you do that after the storm as passed you’ll find yourself yet standing, because you have build upon the rock of Jesus. In Jesus there is perfect love, in Jesus there is love that the world is searching for. In Jesus, he is the love that sustains us. He is the love that gives us the power to persevere through all things. Love suffers long and is kind. Love is full of kindness, Love is full of mercy. Love is patience.
We see what love is, now let us look at what love is not. Love does not envy. Love is not puffed up. Love is humble. Love is lowly. If we look at love, we see that love has the ability to work with others. Love is the all encompassing virtue that comes to our aide when we are brought into relationship with others. Oh yes, you know how much love is in your heart when you are in relationship with another. If there is anything that brings us in contact with others it is love. Anything that separates us from others, it is the lack of love. It is the very nature of love to draw us together, Jeremiah 31:3 “with lovingkindness have I drawn thee”. There is something very attractive about love. There is not a greater witness that we can bear to the city or the world in which we live than the witness of love, the miracle of love.
Love is not selfish, love has no envy in it. There is something about two or three people together you always have the possibility for envy. I’m not talking about two or three thousand but I’m talking about just two or three together, you always have the possibility for strife. You always have the opportunity for the enemy to show up in envy, strife, vain glory, these things work to divide us. These things work to separate us even though you may be a great prophet, or teacher. Signs and wonders working through your ministry an all the giftedness to speck, if we fail to walk in love, the seeds of discord, of envy, strife an division will destroy us; will destroy us rather we are great or small.
But if we let love have its free course. Love has the ability to hold us together. Love is the foundation upon which we build, we erect our lives upon. Love brings us together. Anything that is not love will divide, tear us down. Anything that is not love will not survive the storms of life.
Love suffers long and is not selfish. It is certain that in love there is a power unlike anything man as ever known. We find that even though we have wars love is the only power that will bring peace. Men they stop warring because sooner or later somebody gets a casualty so great that they say “enough of this.” It’s only after so much death and so much killing that man sees the futility of war, and out of that futility he awakens to the fact that only death comes out of war but life comes out of peace. Life comes out of forgiveness. Life is the way of love. War and destruction is the way of death. Men over the ages have learned from there wars and for that reason wars have ceased. The wars that are yet to come, out of those wars man will learn again that peace is the way of life. For that reason men come to the table to make peace. Love, love, love is the way, there is no other way.
Out of all of our doing, do it for Jesus. Do it because you love him. There is not a greater reason; to be motivated to do good works, than love for Jesus. For the writer says” love will never fail”. 1 Corinthian 13:8 tells us that no matter what our earthly activity may be in this world one day it will pass away. It will give way to something greater. In love there is always something greater because love is the eternal quality of God that he has brought by his son Jesus, by the spirit of Jesus to come and dwell in our hearts. And he sh

Paul is speaking by way of letter to the Corinthian Church. The Corinthian Church is a very dynamic Church in the Spiritual gifts. The Corinthian Church is a Pentecostal Church. It is a Church on fire, on the move in Spiritual gifts. At the Corinthian Church you have Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, you have, miracles, gifts of healing, gifts of tongues. And yet, Paul says to the Corinthian Church out of all of the giftedness there is still a more excellent way.
Paul says to the Church that there is nothing wrong with desiring Spiritual gifts. There is nothing wrong with this great movement. But there is still something more that we should desire, that our work should find its foundation in love. 1 Corinthians 13: 1-2, we find though I speak with tongues without love it doesn’t mean a thing. Though I prophecy without love it doesn’t mean a thing. Even though I may give and give greatly if my giving is not because of my love for Jesus, than my giving is in vain, we give we love an all that we do is an expression of our love for him. Do it because you love him. There is not a better reason; there is not a better motivation than love. If you are motivated by love than what you do connects you with God because, “God is love” John 4:8.
If your motivation is love than its going to prosper it’s going to flourish. Whatever God is involved in flourishes. Whatever God does is perfectly done. Whatever God stamps with his approval prospers. And so, if our work is to be a work that God ordains, than it must be a work of love. We must hold love up above everything and know that all of these gifts are tools to be used in expressing love to others. All of our gifts, all of our material wealth, it all comes from the father as an expression of his love. Every material thing we have, every gift we have it comes from God. The gift itself says to me that Jesus loves me it communicates the love of God. And so it is; that in all of our giving in all our doing and whatever our gift might be whatever our place might be in the body of Christ or in the world in which we have been called to serve, our motivation and our reason must be because of our love for Jesus. Do it because you love him. This is the criterion this is the true test of the Church today. Our doing must be out of love. This is the true criterion for anything. The true test for any program is love.
We look at the very nature of charity. We see that charity is love and love has in it an enduring quality. When Paul points to greatness he looks at love. When Paul contemplates heaven he thinks on love. When Paul thinks of the highest summit that he aspires to reach he is thinking on love.
Paul begins to describe love he gives us a picture of what love really is. He says” love suffers long,” 1 Corinthians 13:4, love as in it the quality to suffer. True greatness as in it the ability to suffer. Great things have been born out of suffering. Great men and women are made and conditioned through the things they suffer. The true trademark of greatness is the trails and testing that speak of what every man and woman is made of. The things you suffer they point to who you really are. “Love suffers long” the true test of anything that is real is in its ability to persevere, to go through. A house stands on a foundation that is made of cement and steel a foundation that will stand the storms and the tests of time. If we make love the foundation of all that we do than what we do will last. It will not only last for this day but for centuries that are yet to come, if we build upon love.
I challenge you today to walk in love, to speak in love, to live in love, to work in love. If you do that, you will persevere through the hardships of life. If you do that after the storm as passed you’ll find yourself yet standing, because you have build upon the rock o

(Acts 2:44-47) The Christian Community is an atmosphere of spirit generated sharing. The unifying force of the church is the power of the Holy Spirit. We should always remember that each mender of the body is brought into fellowship by the unifying power of the Holy Spirit. The most perfect expression of this unifying power is love.
The Christian community is knit together in love by mutual concern, caring and sharing; relating to the person through social activity that is blessed by the presence of the Holy Spirit. We cannot escape the social aspects of Christ’s gospel.
If we are called to minister to people who are economically oppressed, there must first be a strong sense of spiritual compassion for the people who walk in darkness. Let us not look away from our present challenge, for even in the mist of our pain and suffering there is also in our mist the loving presence of God.
Compassion is responds in Christian love to the needs of others. It can be difficult to share with the weaker brother but the law of Christ calls upon each of us to “bear ye one another’s burden”. Compassion for people is seen by serving others in Christian love.
The more we serve the more like Jesus we become, (Phil 2:5 – 8). Each of us has a Christian community brings gifts and talents that are unique, in unifying the Christian body. God has given gifts to the Church that we might be brought together in Christian love, (Eph 4:1-3) V7, v12. The Christian community by the unifying power of the Holy Spirit has the resources that are necessary to meet all of the challenges of ministry.

We are commanded by our Lord and Savor to love one another. He has given us an example and a command to continue in the same manner of Love that he has shown toward us. As we continue to walk in this love, we discover the greatness of his love in friendship.
John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends”. To lay down one’s life is to live a life of sacrificial giving. As we give to one another we learn to live. We learn to lay down the selfish life for our friends, this is true greatness.
God commands us” to be Holy for I am Holy”. He wants us to be holy in all manner of life. So, our friendships must be sanctified relationships. God requires pure, clean and Christ-like relationships in the eyes of man and God. 2 Cor.6:14 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers”. The words “yoked together” deals with the union of two or more people the union is commanded by God to be in holiness. The unholy communion of friends will come to nothing but sin, no matter how strong you may feel you are spiritually. The influence of a friend has a way of building up or tearing down mind, soul and body. Therefore, let us chose sanctified friendships that will encourage us to live in holiness and inspire us to love one another.
There is greatness in love and friendship when hearts and minds commune in the love of Christ. Even Jesus calls each of us to a higher relationship, for he has said “henceforth I call you not servant …….but I have called you friends” John15:15. Because we know his word we have divine fellowship with God. If we do whatsoever he commands, Jesus says that we are his friends.
Jesus has chosen to love us has friends. We did not choose him but “he was despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrow, acquainted with grief: We hid has it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not”. And yet, Jesus has chosen to love us has friends. This is the greatness of love because Jesus says you are my friends.
Jesus said “I have chosen you and I ordain you”. With this friendship there is a new level of intimacy. The greatness of his love in friendship is that he gives to you power to bring forth fruit and that your fruit remain. Power so great that whatever you ask in the name of this loving friend Jesus, you know that the father will give it to you.
There is greatness of love in friendship because his love draws us together and brings us to a manner of life that gives unselfishly. The spirit of his love fills us in such a way that we give in the greatness of his love. We lay down our lives, when we love one another. There is no sacrifice to great. This is true greatness of love in friendship.

Luke 22:14-23
The Passover meal celebrates Israel’s deliverance out of Egyptian bondage, and the Lord’s Supper looks forward to the final redemption we will experience when we are gathered together in Christ’s presence. The Lord’s Supper is and observance that remembers the great price Jesus paid that we might be free from sin and death.
The price that Jesus paid was the shedding of blood, for he has washed us from our sins in his own blood. The blood has always played a powerful symbolic role in the atoning work of God for his people. It was Moses who said “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul”, Lev. 17:11. The Old Testament sacrifices under the old covenant had no power to cleanse the conscience from sin. The blood of bulls and goats could not make one perfect. This is why the old covenant had many sacrifices. Every year the people would return to the altar with the same sin.
The Lord’s Supper represents the New Testament. It is a time to remember that the body of Jesus was given that we might be free from the power of sin. The Lord’s Supper represents spiritual union with Christ in his life and death. This is why we call the Lord’s Supper communion. When we take the bread and drink of the cup we sharing in the sufferings of our Lord. “As often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come” 1 cor.11:26.
Communion service is a time to remember that Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastiment of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. A time to remember he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
By his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men. Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain – He washed it white as snow. O the love that drew salvation’s plan! O the grace that bro’t it down to man! O the mighty gulf that God did span at Calvary.
A time to remember, that one day we shall brake bread and drink from the cup in the everlasting kingdom of God. O day of gladness, eternal joy in his glorious presence. “We shall behold him face to face in all of his glory”. We know that when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is”.
“God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away”. “Behold I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man according as his work shall be”.“ Then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O Death, where is thy sting? O Grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!”.

Evangelism is the Church invading the world with the good news of the gospel. A laborer is anyone who is equipped to reach the lost and edify the saved. The laborer lives and ministers under the authority of God’s word. Gifts are given to the body of Christ to equip it for service, to build up the growth of the Church.
The gift of the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth that dwelleth in the believer John 14:17. The anointing of the Holy Ghost enables one to serve in the use of various gifts Christ has given to the Church for, the perfecting of the saints, the gifts of ministry in teaching the knowledge of God Eph 4:11-13, 1 John 2:21-27.
IT is the Spirit of Jesus dwelling within the believer that gives power by faith to cast out Satan, to overcome sin. Your testimony is the witness of the living word and it is power in your life. The impulse to go and share the good news is by the authority of the presence of the indwelling Christ.
