kingdavid123's SoundClick blog - The Lord Will Deliver the Faithful
                              The Lord Will Deliver the Faithful
Daniel is an outstanding example of faithfulness. The reason why Daniel is faithful to his King and the Kingdom in which he has been called to serve is his faithfulness to God in prayer. Prayer is the connection between heaven and earth, the source of power moment by moment every day. The spirit of prayer is the key to Daniel’s success, Daniel 6:3. Prayer is a relationship with God, a sweet fellowship. The Spirit of prayer is the source of power for all that we need.
Somehow in spite of Daniel’s prayer trouble rises in every direction. Prayer did not keep Daniel from trouble, but it kept him safe in the midst of a great storm of trouble. Daniel trusted God in the face of every problem. Each of us like Daniel has got our own problems to overcome. Jesus said “In the world you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world” John 16:33. We all must go through tribulation because the system of this world is Evil. But we can take courage from the victory of our Lord in overcoming the world. His victory is our victory for we are in union with Christ. Christ in you by faith is overcoming power in a world full of trouble.
The good news is that no matter what you are facing God is a deliverer out of all your troubles. It was Paul who said “Out of them all the Lord delivered me” 2 Timothy 3:11. It is the work of the Holy Spirit in the virtue of long-suffering that we are kept through the tribulations of this world.
Paul went on to say that “the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly Kingdom” 2 Timothy 4:18. Paul could say this because he had been faithful unto God through many troubles for the cause of the Gospel. It is important to be faithful to God in the face of tremendous opposition. We must confidently trust God to deliver even if it means through Death. The ultimate deliverance is through Death to Eternal life. “These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have wash their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Revelation 7:14.

God Is Love

Agape love is divine therefore the only way to know agape love is by being born again. The love of God is transformative in the life of the believer. The seed of God’s word enters the heart and produces new life. New life is the fruit of the seed of God’s word. Divine love is manifested in our serving and caring for one another. Because of the New Birth the Christian Community has been empowered by God through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to love one another.
The love of God is not in the human nature of man. It is only through the divine nature by faith that we are partakers of agape love, 2Peter 1:4. It is the work of God in you to serve and care for one another. We are led by the Spirit and convicted in our hearts to love the unlovable. This is the living witness of Christ in the life of the believer. “….everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8.
Christ dwelling in the heart by faith has made it possible for us to love one another. It is the Spirit of Jesus working in the good that we do for one another. The Apostle Paul prayed that we be rooted and grounded in love, Ephesians 3:17. Faith in God is how we come under the control of his love being filled with the fullness of God.
As we love one another we become the visible expression of Christ presence in the world. We are his hand and feet in serving and meeting the needs of others. God is the source of the indwelling love that empowers the believer to show forth works of love in which God is seen. People come face to face with the God who lives in you by our love one to another.

War on the Saints
Daniel 7:15-22 we began our study looking at Daniel who is gifted in dreams and visions. This gift is a vehicle of expressing divine truth as well as things to come. The Prophet asked God for and interpretation of the dreams and visions that he had. Whenever we have dreams and visions that trouble us we should ask God and seek God through consecration and study of his word for understanding.
If a dream continues to trouble you there is usually a reason or message from God. We are to seek out the meaning through prayer and scripture. A vision is something which is seen that brings new knowledge this is the beauty of the dream or vision. In the book of Acts it speaks of “your sons and daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:” Acts 2:17. The knowledge that comes by virtue of the spirit is for direction in all of life. This is the fruit of the spirit filled life.
Vision can come by inward sight such as an unconscious dream. When you are sleeping the spirit can minister and speak to you in a dream. There is also outward sight which is to see with the physical eye. The spirit can show you things to come while you are awake. You can physically see something before it happens. Through vision God gives direction an inspiration. The scripture says “Where there is no vision, the people perish:” Proverbs 29:19.
Visions are important; it is a sad day when the leadership no longer has a vision for God’s people. It is a sad day when we the people of God cannot be stirred by the Spirit of God to move forward as a result of the knowledge and wisdom that has been inspired by the spirit of the Holy Ghost. It is necessary for men and women to consecrate their lives so that they can receive the direction and power that only God can give in this day that we live in.
In this text we find four beasts that the prophet saw who represent Kingdoms. These beasts have come to plague the saints. The four Kings that the scripture teaches shall arise out of the earth. Daniel 7:18 “But the saints of the most high shall take the Kingdom, and possess the Kingdom forever, and ever” This is an everlasting possession that the Lord shall give over into the hands of the Saints. Ultimately the Saints will rule forever in the Kingdom of God.
But in this present world don’t be surprised and don’t be troubled has the ruling powers of the world continue to conspire against the church, as more laws are being passed that come against our religious freedom to witness and build to the glory and honor of God. Don’t think it strange when the trials come against you. We are seeing the move of the Antichrist who is already in the world. His spirit is going to and fro as never before.
Daniel 7:17 “These great beasts, which are four, are four Kings, which shall arise out of the earth.” In Verse 19 the fourth beast is going to rule the world as a result of his great military power. He will wage war against the saints according to verse 21. This world power in the person of a King will demand that all the nations of the world worship him. Remember that no matter what happens God is in charge of the course of History. Be encouraged and rise up in this truth. Not man, not the devil but only God the Father is in charge of the course of History.

                                   Knowing God
“He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? Saith the Lord.” Jeremiah 22:16. This verse is part of a text taken from Jeremiah 22: 13-19. God said that Josiah took care of the poor and this act of benevolence demonstrated his relationship that he had with God. God said that because of Josiah’s benevolence the favor of God was upon his life. How we treat the poor is a strong witness to the world about our faith in God.
Knowing God always will bring one into a right relationship with others. The Spirit of the Lord in the heart of the believer is power to love others. The true work of God’s grace upon the heart can be experienced in the practice of love, “By this shall men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:35.
There is a divine love at work in self-denial and self-sacrifice on the behalf of others. It was the work of the Holy Spirit in a multitude of Saints who sold land and houses and gave the money to the Apostles and distribution was unto every man according to his need, Acts 4:32-35. The Holy Spirit filled the believers whit love that was evident in there care for one another.
We know God by faith, the fruit of faith is love. The more we love the more we grow in our relationship with God by faith. Faith is the gift of God but each of us as with the gift a responsibility to use it or lose it. We all have a stewardship as faithful servants in the labor of love. To refuse to love others is to fail to love God. For no man can say that he loves God and hate his brother.

War against the Saints
Daniel 6:6-12, Daniel is in the midst of a conspiracy that as ultimately been designed to destroy Daniel. Daniel is the victim of jealousy. The King had elevated Daniel to the highest position in the kingdom. Because the King had seen the spirit of excellence in him, all of the other ruling authorities conspired together to bring Daniel to a demise.
The ruling powers of this world are yet conspiring to wage war against the saints of God; Spiritual wickedness in high places, those who rule the world. The Prince of this world Satan himself heads a conspiracy with the powers of the land to wage war against the Saints.
Verse 8 “Now, O King, establish the decree, and sign the writing,” There are laws that are being legislated many are unjust. These laws affect the worship and religious freedom we once enjoyed. For example, the religious freedom of reading the bible in our schools we no longer have. The religious freedom of praying prayers in the name of Jesus we no longer have in the schools and public places. The battle is being waged in our communities. Satan is calling a great battle against the Sons of God, the family of God. Therefore we must pray for our government and those who are in positions of authority. The key weapon for overcoming the adversity that has been sat before us is prayer.
We should pray in spite of laws that say you cannot pray here. We should give ourselves continually to the word of God and prayer. Daniel served the Lord continually in spite of the unjust laws, in spite of the conspiracy of Satan waging a war against the saints. We should pray and give ourselves to the Lord without fear, knowing that God is with us in whatever we face. God suffers with us just as God will reveal his power through us, if we give ourselves to the glory and honor of God without fear. The enemy wants to create fear among the people of God.
Our faith and faithfulness to God is something that we should not compromise. We should not be willing to compromise our dedication and commitment to God. The time, service and worship that we give to God must never be compromised. Just like the Devil is on the street corner, in the schools, and in the community; God has called the saints of God to take a stand and go to the streets, leaving the church to serve the kingdom of God, our community, in love and compassion.
The Devil is doing his job because he knows he has a short time. We to the saints of God should recognize that we are on a timetable to and we are living in the last and evil days. We should feel a compelling urgency to reach out to the lost. We must stand upon the flame of sacrifice in service to be consumed by the love of God in reaching out to the lost.
The Day of Judgment is soon to come. How long do we have to share our testimony with a lost neighbor? How long do we have to share the message of salvation to a world that is searching for the true and living God? To a world lost under the dominion of Satan. How long do we have to bring the light of salvation to those who walk in darkness?
Let’s be faithful like Job, Daniel, Jesus and many of the great Patriarchs of the bible who stand as witnesses that if we be faithful in the mists of our trials and persecution God will stand with us, to deliver from every circumstance we face. Just as the resurrection power raised Jesus from the dead. That same power has been made available to every believer who acts in obedience to the word of God. The Lord will deliver just as he delivered Daniel from the den of lions that same God stands to deliver us if we be faithful. If we serve the Lord continually we can know that he is with us to keep us and bring to us that liberating power that man might see the salvation of the Lord and glorify the father which is in heaven.

                            Transformation by the Word of God
The word of God is quick. We find this description of the word of God in the book of Hebrews 4:12. This is a Greek word that means alive. The word of God is also the breath of God. “God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2:7. As we read and study the word of God we are partaking of eternal life. What Adam had through the living word of God is restored back to man by Christ the Lord, the living word.
Hebrews 4:12 is a picture of Christ the living word. The living word is all powerful. When God created the heavens and the earth and all that dwells therein, it was done by speaking his word. Jesus cast out devils and healed all that were sick by speaking his word, Matthew 8:16. The Centurion of Matthew 8:9 said to Jesus, speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. Anyone who receives the words of Jesus receives power; the word of God is power to become whatever God says you can be.
The Word of God is sharper than any two edged sword. It is sharp enough to pierce through any lie and reveal what is true. The word is the sword of the Spirit the only weapon with piercing power to defeat satanic darkness. The word of God is sharp to pierce through the stony heart and bring a man to true repentance.
We can know the power and glory of the word of God by daily seeking his word. We must commit to the study of God’s word because our thoughts are not the thoughts of God nor our ways the way of God, Isaiah 55:8. To become spiritual we must be transformed by the renewing of the mind in the word of God, Romans 12:2. This is how we feed the inner man by feeding on the word of God we grow in the Spirit. Whatever a person feeds the mind that person will become. Only by feeding upon the word of God we are transformed by the Spirit into the image of God.
The word of God is the seed that is planted into the heart. This seed is the power to transform one’s life, John 6:63. If you make it a habit to daily study and practice the word of God, than whatever you do will prosper, Psalms 1:2-3. There is power in the word of God to cause whatever God says to happen in your season. There is no failure in the word of God, though it tarries, wait for it, Habakkuk 2:3.
Transformation is a day to day process as you put into practice the things that you study in the word of God. Through this process the mind is made new. Before there can ever be a change in behavior there must be a change in the way we think. Every action can be traced back to a thought. As we fill our lives with the word of the spirit transformation will happen in every area of life.
The Spirit of the word is power to know the will of God, Romans 12:2. God is not asking anyone to change based on human ability. It is the work of the Spirit of God to transform life. As we focus on the Word of God we receive power to become the Sons of God.

                              The Praise of his Glory
Jesus uses a vine, branches and husbandman as symbols to demonstrate the relationship between the son, farther and believers. The Son is the vine, the branches are believers and the husbandman is God. As long as the believer abides in the vine he will bear fruit. If we continue in Christ to obey his word we will bear fruit. Fruit is the result of one’s relationship with God by faith in Christ. “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you,” John 15:7, this is the condition for a relationship with God, his word must be the controlling purpose in all that we do. The word of God is seed with power to produce fruit. “good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience”, Luke 8:15.
One benefit of abiding in Christ is answered prayer, John 15:7. When God does not answer a desired request it is because we are asking for something out side of the will of God. Jesus taught his disciples to ask according to the will of God. It was in Gethsemane that Jesus prayed “O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.” Matthew 26:39. Many times we ask God for a way out of suffering but Jesus submitted to the Cross unto to death. Jesus knew that through suffering death on a Cross Salvation would be given to everyone that believes on the name Jesus. If God has not answered your prayer it may be that he will use your suffering for his Glory.
Because of what Jesus suffered in obedience to God we are able to know God, to have a relationship with God through the love of his Son. It was the love of the Father caused him to give his son as a ransom for the world. The Son out of love gave his life so that we can be saved from sin and the eternal judgment of God.
We have the example of the life that Jesus lived out of his love for the Father. On the very night of his Crucifixion Jesus says to his disciples “continue ye in my love.” John 15:9. Just as Jesus was faithful in keeping the words of his Father he asks that we continue to do whatever the word of God says. If we continue to live by the word of God Jesus said that we would abide in his love, John 15:10. Love is the fruit of knowing and obeying the word of God.
Our Lord is soon coming back to this earth and he will be glorified in his saints for we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is, 1 John 3:2. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed, 1 Corinthians 15:52. In the day of the Lord the whole world will see the glory of God in his saints.
On that day we will see the plan of God in its fulfillment. On that day we shall put on immortality and partake in an inheritance predestined before the creation of the World; an inheritance made possible by the blood of Jesus. The Glory of God is the salvation of Sinners. We are the praise of his glory, Ephesians 1:12. It is great to know that God has sealed every believer with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a sample of what we shall receive in full when Jesus returns to earth in all of his glory, to pull off this earthly house and put on immortality, never again to suffer the pain of Sin and Death.
As we live out the praise of his glory others will see the work of his Spirit in the fruit of faith and love. “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:35. Love is the revelation of God by the Spirit in wisdom and Knowledge. So we look to the Holy Spirit to enrich our lives so that others will see Christ working in all that we do.
Holy living is what the purpose of God is for all of

                             The Joy of Fellowship
The disciples knew Jesus through a close fellowship, 1 John 1:1-4. Out of their knowledge of God in Christ they were able to experience love. Out of this love they were compelled to reach out and fellowship with others. John was making known to all what he had seen and heard in the life of Jesus. John made it clear that true fellowship is centered on the truth of Jesus and it’s full of Joy.
Truth is the bond of unity, has we share, we grow closer together in oneness. Truth is to build us up. We need one another in order to grow in faith. Spirit fill believers enjoy communicating the word one to another, “Speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head even Christ,” Ephesians 4:15. As we communicate in love we will experience unity. If we are going to grow it will be through the power of truth spoken in love.
Loving others is evidence of being born again and having the Holy Spirit work in our lives. Love is evidence of true spiritual power. Jesus did not merely love his neighbor as himself, but he laid down his own life for others, John 13:34-35. It is the will of God that we love one another. True love can be seen by the deeds we do. To truly seek to enrich another through our love and concern we bear witness to the love of God. All of us have the potential for touching other lives for the cause of Christ.
People outside the Church will never care how much we know about Christ until they see how much we care for each other, for Jesus has said “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another,” John 13:35. The world is looking at the way the Church takes care of its own. The strongest witness to the power of God in the Church is no greater than our ability to love one another.
Love cannot live under domination. God created man to have dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air, the cattle of the field and not one another. God created man with the inner capacitance for love that finds its expression in fellowship. This why God said “it is not good for man to be along.” Man could not have conversation with the fish of the sea. The Birds of the sky cannot communicate the joy of flight. The cattle of the field cannot speak of the glories of spring time. It was out of this loneliness that God created other human beings.
The will of the flesh is working to cut us off from one another as well as God. The works of the flesh can be seen by the effects of sin. Sin is the cause of broken fellowship. The will of God unites us in fellowship under the control of love. The fruit of the flesh is sin but the fruit of the spirit is life. Let us therefore crucify the flesh and live in the power of the Spirit. Through the word of God we can experience the fruit of the Spirit, Galatians 5:24-25, and the joy of fellowship.

The Hog -pen Experience
Verse 17 of Luke chapter 15 “And when he came to himself”, this is the question that I’d like to put to you today. What will it take for me to come to myself? Many of us are standing in a hog-pen condition right now. But even in the hog-pen Jesus desires to see you back home. Jesus desires for you to make the step back to the path of righteousness, back to home. There is a voice crying in your ear even in the hog-pen. In the midst of your lowest moment Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart. His arms are open; he desires to see you back home, while the blood is yet running warm in your veins. You have an opportunity to come on back home.
The prodigal son came to himself but how many of us will come to ourselves? The grave is full of a multitude that fell to come to themselves. Will you come to yourself right now, and realize that the hog-pen is not the place to be. Rather a backslider or sinner there is a way out. Jesus said “I am the way, the trueth, and the life; no man cometh unto the father, but by me”. Think God that before the creation of the world a way out was made. His name is Jesus.
What will it take for me to come to myself? This is the only question that matters. Not how serious the situation is, for it does not exceed the grace of God. His grace is sufficient even in our weakest hour. If we draw near to him, he will draw near unto us. If we come out and sanctify ourselves he will be a father to us and we will be sons and daughters to him. If we deny ourselves and take up the cross, he has promised to give us his spirit dwelling in our hearts. By the spirit of the living God we can cry Father, Father, Abba, Abba, has sons and daughters of the living God. The family of God, a royal priesthood, brought by the precious blood of Jesus, Kings and Priests called to rule in this land, called to show forth righteousness and good works unto the father. It is by the blood of Jesus, the work of Calvary’s Cross that we have a way out.
I say unto to you, “who has believed our report? To whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed”? Can you see the way out of the hog - pen. I bring to you my testimony the hog – pen experience. After having experienced all that the world has to offer, I believed the report. As a result of believing the report; the arm of the Lord was revealed unto me. In his everlasting arms I am leaning on to this present day. I’m leaning on those arms that centuries of men and women have leaned upon, the arm of the gospel that shows the light of the world.
Will you see the revelation? Will you see the door that stands open to the way out? Will you hear the voice of the spirit of Jesus that reaches out even now? The prodigal son represents the hog – pen experience. What will it take for you to come out of the hog – pen?

The Hog -pen Experience
Verse 15 of Luke chapter 15 “And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent into his fields to feed swine.”After the prodigal son had spent all of his money, a famine arose in the land and he began to seek for food and shelter. A citizen took him in and sent him into the fields to feed the swine. Jerusalem is a Holy City and the lowest thing that you can possibly do in Jerusalem is handle the swine. Swine according to Old Testament law is not to be consumed. Anytime you join yourself with worldly friends you are going to end up in the hog-pen. If you are born again you do not have worldly companionship. In the world you have to look out for yourself, it is the survival of slickest. We must seek God to open our eyes and our mind to discern true friendship, to see the darkness of the world as sin. To understand how short time is. To hear the voice of Jesus calling “come unto me all ye who are heavy laden and I’ll give you rest”.
Luke Chapter 15 verse 16, we find that the prodigal son would have gladly eat the fed that he was giving to the swine. During this period of time just like today it does not matter how hungry a servant may be if the servant begins to eat the food that he should be serving, the servant could lose his job. So the prodigal son had to suffer hunger until he could feed himself with what little he had.
Sin has brought the prodigal son to a condition that only God could get him out of. He is desperately hungry, in the midst of a famine, away from home. There is a famine right here in America. I know that many of us are eating two and three times a day but there is still a famine in this land. The famine is for the word of God and the move of his spirit in this land today. After having spent all many are awakening to the reality of having lost God to gain the world only to lose their soul. After having filled your barn and God put his hands on your life and you find “what will a man give in exchange for his soul”? What can you hold before God in the face of death? What price will you give in exchange for eternal life? There is only one price and that price has been paid by the blood of Jesus. If his blood does not cover your life, than you is not his purchased possession. For when we stand before God it is only the blood of Jesus that will pay that price, in this life and in the life to come. His name is the only salvation for humanity. His name is the only salvation for America.

                          The Hog -pen Experience
Sin is to waste this precious gift of life that God has endowed each one of us with. If we chose sin we are driven to death. The enemy steals your life when you are in sin. We do not always see the deception of sin. Just like the prodigal son looking for the beauty of this great metropolis city that he would enter into, his money would allow doors to be open that would ultimately be shut in his face. If we look at the world today, it is a materialistic world that desires to have your soul. One can get so caught up behind the pursuit of money that you are unable to see nothing else. Money will rule your soul, the love of it. It will be your God. “No man can serve two masters, you cannot serve God and mammon”, Matthew 6:24.
People will go to war over oil but no one is willing to fight so that men can be free. We live in a day were the value of money is greater than human life. The Prince of this world’s system is Satan and he does not value life. Many decisions are made today on the basis of how much money one can gain.
“And when he had spent all,”- Luke 15:14. Right now our Country is facing a great debt on the floor of the congress debate is being waged daily on what to cut. Who would have ever phantom that we would be living in a day were Air-force and military bases would be shut down as a result of the lack of money in our federal government. After all the bureaucratic stealing, the government is at the point of shutting down. Now we are suffering the consequences of a nation that is prodigal. Our Country once knew what it was to be a nation under God, in fellowship with God through prayer, communicating to a father who cares for his own, through his provision and everlasting protection. We knew what it was to reverence a living God in our schools and institutions to look to him in all our ways and he would direct our path.
Today we look at a nation who is prodigal. A nation that has took prayer out of the schools. Prayer is in the process of being removed from all social activity. Certainly, if our forefathers of this great nation were alive today, they would be appalled at what is happening in society. The Constitution of the United States of America allows us to have great freedom but not at the risk of destroying everything that we value. Freedom without discipline is not the will of God. Our God is a God of order; he is a God of design. There is a movement “The new Age” that is coming to destroy all that has been created and ordained by God. It is the mind of the antichrist. He is going forth in the land as never before, on his great black horse, destroying and slaying every institution and the Church is no exception. It is a sad day, but the sadness is a result of leaving God. When you leave God you enter into sin. Sin is a complete demise of the total person soul, mind and body.
We see the soul of our Country deteriorating, dying, and wasting away. How long will we continue to walk as the prodigal son? Will we return to God, the living word, the values and principles that the very foundation of this Country was built upon, or will we continue to waste away?
Right now we like the prodigal son find ourselves in a hog-pen. Domestically speaking we’re in a hog-pen. As much money as many of us make we are just surviving. Twenty years ago if we made the money we make today we would be like a rich man. Our Country in a hog-pen wasting away, this is a terrible experience. This is where you end up with sin. We as a Nation have truly come from a long ways, but now we are looking at the hog-pen, just like the prodigal son.

                          The Hog -pen Experience
In verse 12 of Luke chapter 15, we find two sons but only one of them desired to leave the family. The other son after having his goods and his portion of inheritance given to him as well, he decided to stay at home. He saw the benefits of staying at home, the quality of life. But the other son saw a great opportunity before him, the world its glitter, its fame, the lights, the friends.
The word prodigal means to waste. It is a sad thing to waste not merely the material things in life but to waste the essence of life, life it’s self. To find that life is a vapor and the glory of life like the grass that is green today and tomorrow it is withered away. So it is in life that the world may hold you up high today but tomorrow they want know you. As long as your money last you will be known and you will be loved. It is sad to say but the Presidency of our Country literally goes to the highest bidder. Money is power. You can be a man of great virtue and intellect and be broke and you will find before you a great challenge. But you have a little money and you can perpetrate your way to the highest chair in the land. We see so much corruption behind money and what people will do in the name of money. The Prince of this world has created a system based on greed. This is the reason why the world is so attractive because it comes to us in a lucrative way.
Luke 15:13, we find that the young man after receiving his share he departed. I can see this young man headed for Los Angeles California were the big lights are or perhaps New York City, were he would find fine women and gambling Casinos. He gets there and he finds friends he never known before because he has money that he never had before. The prodigal wasted all that he had.
There is no way to hold on to the gift of life when you leave Jesus. The prodigal son is symbolic to one who had known the father. He had known the benefits of being in fellowship with God. After knowing the father and his care, his everlasting provision, the son would say within his heart “I want to go into the world”. “I’m going to leave you father, I’ve had enough of it all”. To the young it is the experience of the world that pulls at them, the experience of sin. But what I want to share with you today is that sin is not a beautiful experience. “The wages of sin is death”, while you are in sin death is all around you. If it were not for the grace of God upon your life the enemy would still you. When you are whit the crowd you don’t see the adversary, you don’t see his plan. How many of us have been to the funeral of a love one that was out just having a good time. There are so many young people dying today behind sin. The drug experience is something we do with our so call friends only to find yourself left along with a habit that you can’t pay for. The drug experience is what Jesus has come to save us from. As agents of free will we must chose to be free from the bondage of sin, from its power and dominion.
If we chose to experience sin then we must bear the consequence of that choice. The living word of God has given us to know that “what so ever a man sows that shall he also reap”. The experience of sin always comes with a harvest, not only in the life to come but in this life. Somebody is concern about the hell to come but many are living in a living hell right here on the face of this earth. We see our dear brothers and sisters daily, minds disturbed, troubled, the marks of the world on their face, many have chosen alternative lifestyles are facing the judgment of God through social diseases.

The Hog -pen Experience
This is a subject that the spirit of the Lord gave to me. This is my testimony, and experience that I have had with the Lord, that was very unique in that the fruit of the suffering that came out of this experience , allowed me to mature and grow in the Lord in such a way that now I can truly proclaim that Jesus is Lord of my life.
Luke 15, we find a parable of the lost sheep, lost piece of silver and a lost son. The lost sheep represent lost souls. Jesus is the shepherd seeking out the lost sheep. He has called us to seek the lost. We also have the woman who had ten but lost one piece of silver and sweep her house diligently seeking to find the one lost piece of silver. The shepherd went seeking the lost sheep just as the woman went seeking for the silver. So it is that we must go seeking for the lost souls. We have a great job before us seeking the lost.
The prodigal son is symbolic to the backslider. The backslider is unique in that he is lost but he knows his way back home. We will see in this illustration that the prodigal son knew how to get back home this is ultimately what distinguishes the backslider from the lost. The lost have never walked the path nor seen the light. The lost have never known fellowship with Jesus, never hard his voice, never opened his heart to him who knocks at the door.
The thought that I want to leave with you is “The Hog-pen Experience”. The prodigal son is a depiction of a deplorable condition. The question is what will it take for me to awaken to my sinful condition? What will it take for me to say yes Lord? For many of us much of what we experience in life is the hand of God pulling at us in his loving way, knocking at the door of our hearts. Many tragedies in our life come only to bear witness that there is a better way. Much of the hardship and suffering that we experience is merely the hand of God upon our lives. If it were not for the trials and tribulation that come our way, would we pray? Would we seek the face of God? We can ultimately see the hand of God upon our lives drawing us closer to him from day to day.
In this study of the prodigal son I can see my very own personal testimony. Luke chapter 15:11-12, we find the family, two sons with their father. In the world that we live in Satan’s greatest attack is against the family. His desire is to divide, brake up and destroy or kill out the family. From the very beginning Satan’s attack was against the family, Adam and Eve the first family. Sin and death enter this world through the first family. Today is no exception, if we look around at our community, we’ll find the greatest ill in society to be the breakdown of the family. When the family is destroyed you have no inheritance, no community, the entity of husband and wife, sons and daughters, when this institution is destroyed we destroy ourselves. For this reason mirage is sacred, it is an institution that God himself has created and ordained from the foundation of the world. Even today Satan is attempting to destroy the family.

The Comforter
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 to his disciples that the Comforter will remain with you forever.
The Comforter is also called the Spirit of truth. The Comforter is God who not only comes 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 full 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 that creates in every believer the glory and power of God.

The Blessing of Sowing and Reaping
To sow righteousness by being a doer of the word of God will cause you to reap the mercies of God, Hos. 10:12. This is the benefit of sowing righteousness into one’s life. “Break up the fallow ground.” The meaning of fallow ground is land that has been plowed but no seed has been planted. The believer is said to be good ground because he has the ability to receive the word of Christ and bear fruit. The word of God is seed to the sower of righteousness. The promise of more is given to all who sow in righteousness. If we sow righteousness God will open the flood gates and rain righteousness upon us.
Whatever you plant into your life one day it will come to harvest, Gal. 6:7-10. God has set forth the law of sowing and reaping into the universe. You cannot expect to reap were you have not sown. There can be no heaven for the selfish, on love for the unloving, on forgiveness for the unforgiving. Never give into fear or doubt, whatever you sow you will reap, God cannot lie. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”
We should take great confidence in the fact that God has appointed a season of reaping if we faint not. Don’t be discouraged by the trouble that comes to hinder. “He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.” The wind, the clouds, and even the rain represent the many ways that trouble can come. Always remember trouble is temporary like the wind, the clouds and the rain, trouble is always passing. No storm is meant to last forever. “Behind the dim unknown God is forever watching over his own.”
Let us not be discouraged but with every opportunity do good we should. “Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.” Be not deceived God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”” And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, and said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you.”
He that sows the word of God is already blessed in whatever he does. Because he is blessed in whatever he does he can be a blessing to others. The word of God is the seed to the sower and it has made him to prosper in whatever he does and where ever he goes. “For as the rain cometh down and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth bud, that it my give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing I were unto I sent it. “
As you sow the word of God into your life it will add to you the blessing of health, and prosperity. “Be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” Your labor will sometimes be in dishonor; But God will one day raise it up in glory; it is sown in weakness but God will one day raise it up in power. “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 Anointing
The Anointing is the power to serve in the call that God has placed upon one’s life, Acts 1:8. All of us have been called to witness. It is impossible to bear witness to something that you have no experience of. The infilling of the Holy Ghost is a day to day personal walk with God. Out of this experience the anointing empowers the believer to serve in the call that God has placed upon one’s life.
The Anointing will not come without sanctification, John 17:19-21, the believer is sanctified by the word of God. We are hated by the world because the world cannot receive what has been set apart for the glory and honor of God. God has placed his Spirit inside of you so that you can have power to overcome the world. God has placed the anointing within you by the spirit of his word. The Spirit of truth is the Anointing of God to teach, comfort and keep every child of God.
The key to the anointing is constantly being in the presence of Jesus, Acts 4:13. The anointing is the spirit of Jesus. It is essential for oil to be in the lamp for light to shine forth. Is there oil in your vessel? The spirit of Jesus is the oil that causes one’s life to shine forth. Is your lamp trimmed and burning? “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts,” Zechariah 4:6. The Lord is saying my spirit will deliver and accomplish what human effort cannot do. The Spirit of the Lord is working to perform the will of God.
Are you willing to pay the price to obtain the oil? Matthew 25:6-13. The price is a willingness to surrender one’s life in service to God; once this is done you will become a vessel that God will fill with his power and glory. There must be a wiliness to offer up your whole life to God, anything less than this is foolishness. There is only one thing that separates the wise from the foolish, a willingness to pay the price. The price you pay is the cross you bare. Consider the price; count the cost for the oil is a very precious possession.

After fasting forty days in the wilderness, Jesus was very hungry. Satan would now tempt Jesus in his weakest hour, with the pain of hunger pressing down upon him; Satan would suggest the ideal of turning stones into bread. Jesus had been led into the wilderness to fast. Just has he had trusted the word of God to feed him spiritually; He would trust God to satisfy his physical need. Jesus would not seek to satisfy himself, he would seek the will of God above everything. Jesus would trust the word of God to lead him and not the passions or dictates of the flesh. “Man shall not live by bread along but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” Matthew 4:4.
Satan saw that Jesus was determine to follow the word of God no matter what; so, he would use a passage of scripture to try to draw Jesus into acting contrary to the will of God. “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at anytime thy dash thy foot against a stone” Matthew 4:6. Satan is trying to use the word of God to suit his own satanic purpose. This is why he misquoted the scripture. “For he shall give his angels charge over thee to keep thee in all thy ways” Psalm 91:11. Satan was trying to get Jesus to go a different way, for he knew the way of Jesus to be the will of God. Jesus understood the devil’s plot as a way to tempt God into proving that he was the Son of God. Jesus would not consent to tempt God in any way.
The Devil would offer Jesus all of the Kingdoms of the world. Satan wanted Jesus to think that it was in his power to give him the world. If Jesus would commit himself over to the devil in worshiping him, Satan would give him the world. Jesus than commanded the devil to leave from his presence. Satan could not give Jesus the world, for Jesus is the creator of heaven and earth and the fullness thereof; it is not possible for Satan to give Jesus anything.
If we rely upon the word of God to lead us by the spirit of truth, we will discover power to overcome temptation. “Walk in the spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh” Galatians 5:16. The Spirit fill life is a life that feeds upon the word of God with a desire to perform it. It is a hunger to be used by God for his glory. “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit” Romans 8:5. If we sat our thoughts upon Jesus he will keep us and carry us through all the trials we face.

Temptation is define as test or trial in which truth is revealed. For example, trouble is a test of character. If you have run out of money you will find out who your true friends are; our trials come to make us and reveal the truth about our so call friends. No matter what Satan has set before us God is working all things out for our good. God will bring good out of evil, light out of darkness, life out of death, joy out of pain.
Whatever you are facing someone has been there before. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says that “God is faithful” isn’t it good to know that he has promised never to leave us along because God is a deliver. No matter what you are facing God can bring you out. He knows just how much you can bear. He knows your ability, he knows your weakness. God knows you better than you know yourself.
The key to every temptation is having a made up mind to go through. It is never a sin to be tempted but it is a sin to yield to temptation. Temptation represents something in your life that must be overcome. God has allowed temptation that you may truly know the truth about yourself and your relationship with God. The way of escape is in the grace that God gives to overcome your trial. We can rejoice in the midst of our trials because God has given each of us power to bare the things we suffer. Not only power to bare temptation, but God gives power to overcome temptation. It’s good to know that we are kept by the power of God. If your mind is truly made up to go through God will keep you by his power.
The trial is a test of faith; true faith will trust God through manifold temptations, 1 Peter 1:6. The trying of your faith produces patience. The fruit of tribulation is patience. God can do a perfect work in our lives through the power of the virtue patience. “Let patience have perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing,” James 1:4. Patience is a trust in the love of God to take care of whatever touches one’s life. Knowing that it may not be clear what God is doing or even how God is going to work out a given situation. All I know is that I can trust his love, because his love will bring me safely through any trial.
Temptation has a way of revealing the inner make up of a person. What happens to a person during a trial is important; what happens on the inside of a person is of greater concern because the inside of a person determines how that person will respond during a crisis. We cannot control what happens around us but we can control what happens within us. “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a City,” Proverbs 16:32.
In Christian growth temptation is unavoidable. Temptation comes that we my truly commit ourselves to the will of God and enter into the righteousness of his guidance. Through the trial God is working within me power to overcome. Temptation will try the commitment to the call that God has placed upon one’s life. Matthew 4:1, Jesus is led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. This trial is to try our Lord’s commitment to the call that was placed upon his life by God the Father. It is important to note that Jesus is led by the power of the Spirit into the Desert. The same power that led Jesus would also enable him to overcome the temptations of the Devil. Jesus would rely completely upon the power of the Spirit of the Word of God in everything.

                                   Divine Purpose
“Surely as I have though, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand.” Isaiah 14:24. Divine Purpose is the will of God on earth as it is in heaven. The plan of God is already done in heaven and is being done through the process of time. We get a revelation of God’s purposes as we study the Bible.
We have plans that we want to see come to pass, circumstances get in the way of what we are trying to do, adversity rises up against the good that we do. When we align our plans with the plan of God what we say and do will come to pass. In spite of great circumstances brought to us through the powerful hand of adversity, we must continue to stand upon the promises of God.
Isaiah 14:25 is a word of prophecy that Isaiah sent to King Hezekiah that would encourage him not to surrender to the King of Assyria. The Assyrian soldiers of 185,000 were a great Army that King Hezekiah in his own strength could not overcome, 2 Kings 19:35. It was by Prayer and Faith in the word of God Hezekiah received deliverance.
Hezekiah was a wise King because he sought out the will of God. It is true that one can be in the will of God and still face great opposition. What do you do when the word of God says one thing and your circumstance says another? Remember God is bigger than your trouble. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness.” 2 Peter 3:9. “God is not a man that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Numbers 23:19. God used the opposition Hezekiah faced to show forth his mighty hand of deliverance. What God had purposed to do would come to pass on spite of great opposition.
The testimony of Job is a look at Divine Purpose. The book of Job reveals a conversation between Satan and God. Satan accused Job of begin faithful to God only because God had been so good to him and his family. “Doth Job fear God for nought? “ Job 1:9. Job did not know the reason for the lost of everything but he refuse to blame God instead he worshipped the Lord. What do we do when purpose is hidden? Job was never given a reason for his trails of faith. Through all of his trails he held on to faith and trusted God to be in control of all that is good and evil.
“Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?” Job 2:10. Most of us can see God in the giving but only a few can understand the same hand that gave is the hand that has taken away. “The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21. Never lose faith for God is in absolute control of all things that touch our lives be it good or evil.
“When he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold” Job 23:10. The Devil is the author of all that is evil. Job knew that his trials were from the Lord, with the purpose of revealing the glory of God in his life. There is a reason for every trial. It is through our trials we grow in Holiness. Job did not say if he try me, but he said “when he has tried me.” The trials of life are sure to come; the only question is when, how and how long.
The good news is that God has a divine purpose for everything. God is able to use evil that was meant to destroy your life for purpose that will bring forth good to you and the people he has called you to serve. We know this is true because evil men crucified Jesus. God did not simply allow it but he predetermined that evil men would crucify Jesus, Acts 2:23. Jesus submitted to the will of the father and God raised him from the dead. God has made it possible for all who believe on the name Jesus shall be saved. Let us trust God in whatever he has allowed to happen in our lives to work for our good and his glory.

Keep The Vision Alive

Let us be faithful to the word of God. The word of God is the visions of glory manifested in the life of the believer, v.2. No matter how great the turbulent storms of life, let us run the race with patience; for our God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Run the race with patience because the vision of Glory will surely come. Run the race with patience, for there is nothing too hard for our God.

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time,” Hab.2:3. Through the process of time, God is unfolding the vision of glory for your life. Every day of life is divinely appointed. It may seem at times as though we are always living for tomorrow; and yet, it is in this present moment we chose the steps that will take us from glory to glory. “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,” Ps. 37:23. To walk by the word of God is to have a lighted pathway in the midst of darkness. This light that we have in the word of God is a vision of glory.

“Though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come,” v.3. As we travel along the pathway of life there will be times of trial and tribulation. The enemy wants to steal your vision of glory. Be faithful to the vision of God’s word. God will perform his word. Whatever touches your life, God will use it to show forth his glory. Be faithful to the vision because it will surely come to pass. Let us not become lifted up in the pride of what we can do or what we cannot do, but let’s forever keep the vision of faith in what God will do in us and through us.

“Cast not away therefore your confidence,” Heb. 10:35. The target of the enemy is to get you to give up your confidence in the word of God. He will seek out whatever and use whoever to steal, kill and destroy. However, it really does not matter what Satan does, he cannot put his hands on your faith. Your faith is what you give up, when you give up on God. No matter what the cost, “sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us,” Rom. 8:18. No matter what the cost, nothing “shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord, “Rom. 8:39. “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God and he shall be my son,” Rev. 21:7.

After you do the will of God, you must have patience, Heb. 10:36. If we persevere through patience, we can receive the promise of God’s word; this is the fulfillment of the vision. We can be fruitful in every good work through patience. “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister,” Heb.6:10. The foundation of every man’s work is going to be tried by fiery furnace of tribulation and persecution. But if we remain faithful to the name of the Lord Jesus, God will bring to pass the vision of promise.

“Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man drawback, my soul shall have no pleasure in him,” Heb.10:38. Let us therefore pursue the vision with a righteous zeal. Give yourself completely to the vision of God’s word for your life. Yield all of your life give all that you have to Jesus. Do not draw back. There is only one way to keep the vision alive, we must be willing to faithfully live it. The just shall live by faith. A committed life lives in the vision of God’s word by faith.
