Our world is being transformed rather fast. Some may say World War III is coming, some may say the first shots have already been fired. But there are other battles to consider.

Sermon Notes

A partial set of notes and list of scriptures.

 

We have GREATLY Underestimated Satan's power and art of deception.  LOOK how he destroyed Worldwide from the inside.

1995 A GREAT STORM struck the Church of God and I lost a great number of good friends.
WE NEED to be strong and FOLLOW God.  These friends had been "saying the right things" ... however, apparently, not really FOLLOWING GOD.

So, do we PRAY daily asking God to help us stand when Satan tempts or attacks us. Do we pray for protection, guidance, endurance?

Jesus spoke with authority because HE HAD authority.
Matthew 24:3 Matthew 24:3And as he sat on the mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world?

We just returned from the Feast, but we are still living in the world.  I am aware just from seeing how people drive... NO regard at all for other drivers.

Have we come back determined to make changes based on What we heard?

Will we keep doing what we have been doing, or will we make small, cumulative changes over this year to see major changes by NEXT Feast, injected in our lives.

WHAT will you commit to do, micro changes, "micro-steps" in habit changes and made consistent will yield great changes by the next Feast!

Joh 6:44  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

HE called us because we are the weak of the world.

1Co 1:26  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

HOLY NATION,
Nations have their own characteristics...

To PROCLAIM he praises of HIM who called us from darkness to HIS Marvellous Light!!!!

The physical surroundings can get a LOT WORSE. Next year, with no rain and what is going on and spreading in the Middle East, we may have GREAT CHALLENGES.
