THE VALLEY OF SOREK. Judges 16:4


 

20140628-011817-4697393.jpg
Judges 16:4. And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.
We all know the story of the man called Samson in the Bible and the woman called Delilah. In this contest I will be talking about we Humans as Samson and the Sins we commit as Delilah.
For us to understand this story and message, we first need to understand who Samson was. To cut the story short; Samson was the 14th Judge of Israel and he judged Israel for 20 years.
Judges 13; 14; 15 & 16 tells us about Samson & Numbers 6 tells us about the life and rules of a nazarite.

Samson was a man of miraculous birth. Just like every man born of a woman. We are all destined for greatness. Samson came in a time when Israel needed a savior. He was their hope and joy. God specifically gave his father and mother specific and detailed instructions, on how he will live his life, his dos and don’t.

There were 5 commandments to the mum & dad.
1. To his Mum, make sure you drink no wine nor strong drink. Judges 13:4,7,14.
2. Eat no unclean thing.
3. No razor shall come upon his head. vs 5
4. Don’t not eat anything that comes from the vine. vs 14.
5. His father must make sure his wife ( Samson’s mother) follows all these rules.

20140628-013716-5836430.jpg

Samson was already consecrated even before he was conceived in his mothers womb.
We should note this before we continue:
Samson strength did not lie in his hair and muscles, but in the relationship and vow he had with God through the Holy Spirit which was upon him. (Judges 13:25; 14:6,19; 15:14.) and also his faith in God ( Heb 11:32-40). His hair was a token of his vow to God and spoke of that relationship which gave him strength.

Samson had 12 recorded exploits in the Bible.
1) Rending a lion barehanded. Jug 14:6.
2) Slew 30 men. Jug 14:19.
3) Caught 300 foxes. Jug 15:4-5.
4) Smote philistines with great slaughter. Jug 15:8.
5) Broke 2 new ropes that bound him. Jug 15:13
6) Slew 1,000 armed men with jaw bone of an ass. Jug 15:15-17.
7) Brought water out of the jawbone. Jug 15:16-20.
8) Broke the city gates and carried them to the hill top before Hebron. Jug 16:3.
9) Broke 7 green cords of braided wood that bound him. Jug 16:6-9.
10) Broke new ropes that bound him. Jug 16:10-12.
11) Broke the pin that bound his 7 locks of hair to the wall and carried the pin and web with him. Jug 16:13-15.
12) Slew 3000 men and women by pulling down the great pillars that held up the house. Jug 16:23-31.

Samson had it wrong because he allowed the wrong people into his inner circle, He was deliberately playing with sin. Just like people in this present times. Lust is that sweetener that adds bad pleasure to the things we are doing. It is a slow killer, yet we perceive it not because it keeps us so focused to the present pleasure, blinding us from seeing the consequences of our actions in the future.

Delilah was the trap the philistines used in getting him, exactly the same way the devil uses our sins to get us. This trap is so cleverly constructed, it only takes a man with great spirit of discernment to detect it. The spirit of Delilah is every where, even in churches these days. This spirit that enters people, can do everything in church. From singing to fasting to praying, shouting, dancing, and speaking in serious hot tongues. It is a camouflage spirit. After all the devil has transformed himself to an angel of light. It looks so real to be fake, but the mission of this spirit is death. Remember James 1:12-15. This finally lead to death in every aspect of life.
Samson went to Delilah down in the

Valley of Sorek.
His first mistake was Disobedience. He was suppose to remain at the top. Every time he went down, he broke the laws given to Moses by God. Concerning marriages and his Nazarite vows. He went down to the main wine section. How do you expect not to commit sin when you are already inside the house of sin? I say this all the time ” If you do not want to eat the forbidden fruit; then stay away from the forbidden tree.”
Sorek is a place where grapes in large quantities were grown and later processed into wine. This implies; Samson actually went into the lions den. The same thing is happening in our generation now. People actually go down to the path of death, hoping grace may abound. Not So!!! There is always a price for our sin. ” sin has a pay day; believe me it is never a good pay day.”

20140628-012400-5040634.jpg
What is Sorek?
~ Sorek is that wild gate that leads to the house of the enemy.
~ Sorek is that rope called pleasure, that is tied to our waist pulling us back to the things we do not want to do.
~ Sorek is that place, where good and bad meets, and the good is corrupt by the bad.
~ Sorek is a place of separation.
~ Sorek is that place that looks good on the inside but it is a place of biter and constant regrets.
~ Sorek is a place where Gods presence will never go with us.
~ A place where God gave instruction never to go to.
~ Sorek is that cleverly conceal sin we are committing, thinking and hoping no body will see us.
~ Sorek is that place we visit in the dark where the pastors and our parents can’t see us.
~ Sorek is that spiritual and physical pollution that is pushing heaven away from us.
~ Sorek is that friend that makes us feel comfortable with sin.
~ Sorek are those dirty pictures & magazines we are bold enough to look at.
~ Sorek is that loud voice that tell us; it doesn’t matter, God understands.
~ Sorek is that boyfriend/ girlfriend that drives us into fornication.
~ Sorek is that cloud that blocks and separate our direct access to heaven.
~ Sorek is that thing that drives God away and blocks our communication with Heaven.
~ Sorek it that spiritual laziness we are living in.
~ Sorek is that jumping and gyrating messages we listen to. Not warning us about our sins, but telling us about prosperity and grace.
~ Sorek is that beast that kills the best.
~ Sorek is that wasting powers that wastes the lives of young men and women.
~ Sorek is that place, where the great are brought to nothing.
~ Sorek is that place where God’s hands are tied and the name of The Lord is brought to ridicule.

Sorek and Delilah move and work hand in hand. Because you will only find Delilah in the valley of Sorek. That is the only place they can both cohabit. Where sin and lust, pleasure and untimely death can both coexist.

20140628-013950-5990804.jpg
Facts about Delilah: (Sin).
We should have this in mind. Delilah in this passage refers to both men and women!!
– She hunts for the Precious Life. Pro 6:24-26.
– Her path and end is always bitter.
– She flatters with her lips.
– Leads to hell.
– Destroys people utterly.
– She lies.
– She is the spirit of the night.
– She is stubborn and persistent.
– She pulls down great people.
– She tempts and she seduces.
– She will force you to pour out all you heart and secrets to her.
– She will pamper your weakness and then strike you directly in the heart when you become vulnerable.
– She enters into agreement with men to commit sin.
– Doing evil for money.
– Deceptions and plotting the death of great men and women.
– Waring against God and seeking to overthrow the anointed of God.
– Delilah will make you have her trust and then betray you when you least expect it.
In all Delilah is a destiny terminator, and it comes in form of Sin and Pleasures. She’s the spirit of the witchcraft barbers, cryptic spirit. Not easily detected. She’s the spirit of Jezebel that makes men do evil without knowing what they are doing. But it has a destructive end. Full of regrets

The spirit of Delilah is an experimental sprit. Why? Because it tries all your weaknesses, sees all your defenses and see which strategy will work best. This spirit is a fighter and a hunter that never gives up. No matter how hard you pray or fast. They are always waiting for your unguided hour. This spirit looks for the people void of understanding, so called easy prey.
Noticed I said Delilah hunts for the precious soul at any price.
Each lord of the philistines (5 lords in total) paid Delilah 1,100 pieces of silver. That’s in this time, it is worth over 3,520$. Delilah easily agreed because her goal from day one was to make Samson useless.

Delilah had the persistent sprit. She was getting closer to Samson’s secrets.
The first two instances concerned the binding of his hands and feet. But the third instance, he mentioned his Hair. Judges 16:13.
She was still consistent. Just as the devil is today towards us. And the same way the power of sin is trying to overpower us.
Her continual urging to tell her the truth finally brought him to despair, instead of leaving her alone and run for his precious life. He brought down the people of God and let the philistines persecute him and God’s People.

That is what the devil does these days. Little by little we continue in our sins. Then we keep graduating in it. Of course nothing has happened. We feel relax and think it is normal. Suddenly when we least expect it; the troubles and issues of life arises. We are not trained nor equipped to handle it. We easily become a prey in the hands of the captors.

Sin will keep us longer than we want to stay and make us pay more than we ever bargained to pay. It will rob us off the precious things from God. The painful part in it is that; not us only but our loved ones and family will all pay the price and bear the shame with us.
Life is all about wisdom and instruction.

For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: (Proverbs 6:23 KJV)

The only way we can be free from this ragging spirit is to flee from sin and run fast to God. Time is not on our side, Destinies are been wasted by this sprit on daily bases. We will only conquer this spirit if we dwell in the secret place of the Most High. We must abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
We should avoid every thing that is antagonizing the Spirit of God in our lives.

It is so amazing to know that, no matter what we have done or what went wrong, God is still willing and ready to give us a second chance. Remember Isaiah 1:18. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord : though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

It doesn’t matter what you have done, there is still hope for you. All you need do, is to forsake your sins and make a U-Turn.
Isaiah 44:22. I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.
It is not going to be easy but ” His grace is very sufficient for you.”
~Watch the kind of circle you belong to and the kind of friends you keep.

Remember:Psalms 1:1.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
When the circle you keep and the things you do pleases God. You are certain that you will have life in abundance.
God Has and He will forgive you all you think you have done. Only Return Back To Him.
Isaiah 43:25. I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
God bless.

THE BORN AGAIN EXPERIENCE: Ephesians 2:1-10.


IMG_3280.PNG

Ephesians 2:1-10
1. And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3. Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5. Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6. And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7. That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

IMG_3281.JPG

In the part One of these series:
We look at our miserable state of sin, when we were dead in our trespasses and how God’s grace and mercy located us.
Verse 1-3 tells us about our old state.

~ Our Unregenerate souls that are dead in trespasses and sins. All those who are in their sins, are dead in sins. Sin is the death of the soul. Wherever that prevails there is privation of spiritual life. Sinners are dead in state, being destitute of the spiritual life and cut off from God. They lack the fountain of life. And the are slave to the law.
~ A state of sin is a state of conformity to this world. Vs 2; says wherein in time past, we did walk according to the prince of the power of the air and the spirit that now work in the children of disobedience.
~ We were fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind.

Verse 4-10: gives account of God’s glorious mercy and salvation of our souls through Grace:

We must realize that salvation is free but not cheap. There are many things we have to drop in order to continue in this free gift that Christ has given us. Our old man and old ways have to be nailed to the cross.
We have grace at our disposal but we should not take the liberty Christ has given us for granted.

Our liberty and freedom from the grip of the devil is not because we are righteous, it is because of Grace. This grace is sufficient for us in every situation we find ourselves.
We ought to walk on this grace and help others trace their way Christ.
It’s is not an avenue to condemn others and put on The- Holier Than Thou Attitude. But we should remember that we were once dead to sin, grace found us, mercy saved us. We ought to pray for our fellow, believing God that they will be save.

Finally: The 10th Verse says:
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

We are now created in the Imagine of Christ Jesus, Our Life is Hid in Christ and Christ in God. It means we are Untouchable as God’s people.
As we are living a right life, before anything harms us, it must harm Christ Jesus and God first before harming us. Even the devil himself bears witness that’s impossible.
We only need to walk in the principles of holiness and righteousness; according to the will of our Heavenly Father.

God Bless.

THE MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION 2 Corinthians 5:16-21


20140726-133718-49038990.jpg
2 Corinthians 5:16-21. Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
17. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19. To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21. For he hath made him be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

The question remains, “How can God be just—that is, true to Himself in nature and true to Himself in holiness—and yet justify the sinner?” Because each man had to bear his own sins, all mankind was excluded from helping, since each was contaminated with the same disease. The only solution was for an innocent party to volunteer to die physically and spiritually as a substitution before God. This innocent party would have to take man’s judgment, penalty, and death. But where was such an individual? Certainly, there was none on earth. There was only one possibility. God’s own Son was the only personality in the universe who had the capacity to bear in His own body the sins of the world. Only God’s Son was infinite and thus able to die for all.

Christ gave us Both Regeneration and Reconciliation.

~ REGENERATION:
This consists of two things
1. Separation from the world: ” Henceforth we know no man after the flesh” vs 16. We do not own or affect any person or thing. We trust not in the flesh of any man.
We are enabled only by divine grace, not to mind nor regard this world, nor the things of this world. But to live far above it.
We must live in His spiritual presence and the comfort it affords
2. A thorough change of the heart: ” For if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature!” Vs 17a. This ought to be the goal and purpose of all those who confess and profess Christian faith, that they be new creatures, not only a new name but a new heart, new nature, and a new life.
” Old things are passed away- old thoughts, old principles, old practice, old religion they are all gone away! And all things have become New” vs 17b.
Regeneration creates a new world in the soul, all things are new. The renewed man acts from new principles, by new rules, with new ends, and in a new company.

RECONCILIATION:
1. Reconciliation as an Unquestionable Privilege: vs 18-19. There is already a breach of friendship, of the relationship between man and God.
God appointed the mediator, He has reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ.
God does not input sin to those who have confessed and have reconciled back with Him.

2. Reconciliation as our Indispensable Duty. Vs 20. God is ready and willing to bring back the old time friendship and relationship He once had with Adam.
God now made the reconciled to become ambassadors for Christ to reconcile others tonGod. Romans 5:10.

2 Corinthians 5:21.For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
1. The purity of the mediator~ He knew no sin.
2. The sacrifice He offered~ He was made Sin, not Sinner, but Sin. That is to say; A Sin-Offering, a sacrifice for Sin.
3. All these sacrifices, so ~ ” We can be made THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM!”

As Christ who knew no sin of His own was made sin for us. Our Reconciliation to God is only through Jesus Christ, and for the sake of His merit. On Him, therefore, we must rely only and by His Grace alone.
We have to put old things and old life away. Putting our old man away.
Which is sin, lust, the pride of life, the power of satan, the world, the law of sin and death, the lust of the eyes. And putting on the new man, which is love, peace, fellowship, obedience, patient, self-control and holiness without which we can’t see God.

REST FROM THE STORMS OF LIFE ” 17th Day Of The Seventh Month.”


20140716-214337-78217960.jpg

Genesis 8:4. And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
We all know the story of the flood of Noah. When the evil men did was no more bearable for God, He decided to destroy ” SOME ” living creature. One man and his family found grace in the eyes of God. God gave Noah specific instructions in the building of an ark, special materials were to be used, and a standard size for the ark was also given.
God gives Noah detailed instructions for building the ark: it is to be of gopher wood, smeared inside and out with pitch, with three decks and internal compartments; it will be 300 cubits long (137.16 m, 450 ft), 50 wide (22.86 m, 75 ft), and 30 high (13.716 m, 45 ft); it will have a roof “finished to a cubit upward”; and an entrance on the side.
When the ark was complete, God ordered Noah to take his family in And every clean creature both male and female were to enter into the ark as well.
Noah obeyed and did exactly as God commanded.
Then it rained for forty days and forty nights on earth and every living creature that was not inside the ark died. ( excluding the fishes are the trees)!
The story goes on to describe the ark being afloat throughout the flood and subsequent receding of the waters before it came to rest on Mountains of Ararat.

This period was a dark time for Noah, it was like the storm will never be over and peace will never come.
When we talk about storms, we intend hard situations, problems, adversity, tribulations, hard times.
Just like the case of Job, when he wrote Job 23:8-10.
8. Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him:
9. On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him:
10. But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

God was silence that doesn’t mean He was not capable. He was watching, because He is a God that never arrives late. He Has His perfect agenda in every situation. The puzzle of life is best solved looking at it from the top.

In the stormy periods it seems God is way far away. These are the times we ask this simple question that is very difficult to answer. ” GOD WHERE ARE YOU?!
But remember Isaiah 54:10
For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.

The stormy period is a place where you carry your cross alone, because friends and family have deserted you.
The storms of life affects every race and every body, both male and female , young and old.
The storms of life take away our peace and rest, it’s a time where we find ourselves in the tunnel of difficulty, in the school of adversity. A place when the devil feels he is the head master.
The storms of life makes us feel guilty, because people don’t believe we are innocent and if we are as we claim, why are all these things happening to us.
In these periods we have too many unanswered questions.

BETTER DAYS ARE COMING

20140716-213406-77646880.jpg
After the rain and storm comes the rainbows.
Notice the rainbows never appear before the storm.
God made a covenant with Noah and this covenant is still kept by God unto this day.
He made the covenant after Noah have passed the test of time. After his love for God have been proven to be real, after obedience have been put to a test.
Noah gave up everything he had accumulated in his long life in order to start over.
SACRIFICE ALWAYS PRECEDES SUSSCESS, YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP ON MANY THINGS THAT ARE EXCESS IN YOUR LIFE, DISTRACTIONS,FRIENDS,BAD COMPANY,SINFUL LIFE PLEASURES etc, IN ORDER TO GO UP.

Genesis 9:11-17
And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

Just like Joseph in the bible, he had his own stormy days, when hope was against hope, we the life of a slave was already guaranteed. He still believed in God and did not err away from promises of God. He had many reason to default and say: well “God was not there too help me” but he held up to his believes in God.
The three Hebrew boys, knowing they were facing death, if they refuse to bow down to the king statue, they refused, looking only unto God. They were also victorious.
David has a lot of stormy days, from a child he was undergoing hard labour, doing the job of the older ones. But he kept his focus and learned everything he needed to learn in his wilderness experience.

For every storm that comes our way, there are lessons we should learn from it.
It is not just coming our way for coming sake, the bible says;
1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

During our stormy days we should focus on Jesus, He will get us out.
The bible tells us in Isaiah 49:14-16.
But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me.
Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.

We might think or feel, God is not close by, we might be feeling lonely. That is the point when we need to pick our Bible and focus totally on God, Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith.
At this point we have to feed our faith so much, that our doubts begins to fade away. Then we see God appear. Without the test, we can’t have the perfect testimony.
The story of Hannah wouldn’t be interesting if she didn’t wait so long for a child.
The story of Sarah would have been a casual one, if she had given birth at 30.
God knows what He is doing, just like Job 23:10. When we have been tried in all areas, we will come out refined as pure gold. Then our testimony will be perfect.

In our Christian journey, we are not guaranteed a safe journey, but we are 100% sure that we will arrive in our destination in peace.
Jesus Christ told His disciples that he is leaving His peace with them. Not as the world gives, but the peace that surpasses all understanding.
No matter how hard the devil tries, we are victorious.

BENEFITS FOR ENDURING THROUGH THE STORM.
We have a new beginning.
We have a new covenant.
We have everlasting joy.
We have assurance of peace.

I encourage you this day to stay on the promises of God, every other ground will sink you. Let your hope be built on the world of God. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Don’t envy any body nor look at their progress, we dare not compare ourselves with others, those that do such things are not wise. We all have different destines, the harder it is now, the more glorious it will be in future.
You will understand it better when you tell your testimony how you overcame.

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Hebrews 13:5-6.

If the ark of Noah rested after the rain and storm, I guarantee you that you will rest from every troubles and storms of life.
It only takes time, God is working on you to bring out the best in you.
If the devil had known that ” sending Jesus to the cross will be our hope of freedom and redemption, he wouldn’t have dared it.” But the cross brought the crown of glory.
Carry your cross and be consistence in prayer and fellowship with God.
Only focus on God only. Remember we have an Unchanging God in a Changing world, His promises are Ye and Amen,
” If He did it before, He can do it again”
Hold on, you are closer to the promise land than you can imagine, just one push can make the difference.
YOU WILL REST JUST LIKE THE ARK OF NOAH RESTED!
God bless.

4 STEPS IN DEVELOPING YOUR GOD GIVING GIFTS.


20140701-161943-58783419.jpg
1. Focus on the strengths God gave you. Concentrating on your strengths will help you fulfill the calling God has put on your life.

2. Exercise your gift. Find something you like to do and that you do well, and do it over and over again. Want to know what will happen? You will feel better about yourself because you won’t be constantly failing.

3. Have the courage to be different. Unhappiness comes when you try to be like everyone else rather than embracing the unique person that you are.

4. Learn to cope with criticism. Have enough confidence in who you are in Christ that you can listen to others and be open to change without feeling you have to agree with their viewpoint or attain their approval.

God has planted greatness in you. Let today be the beginning of a great adventure as you step into the gifts He’s given you.

But remember this:
•And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
•And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
•And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
•For if these things are in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
•But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
•Wherefore the rather, brethren, give the diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 2 Peter 1:5-10

Two Ways ” The Narrow & The Broad Way” Matthew 7:13-14.


20140614-145256-53576776.jpg

In Life There Are Only Two Things Involved.
Life as a whole is placed in two groups, every thing in life has it’s exact opposite. We have the good and bad; life and death; success or failure.
We will be looking at a very interesting and important topic, because this topic is the base of our Christian life and walk with God. It will also determine where we will spend eternity.

Matthew 7:13-14.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

This passage tells us of two ways, two lives, two ends. The way to heaven and the way to hell. The right and wrong, the good and evil.
In one of which we are currently walking MAJESTICALLY, either knowingly or unknowingly. There is no middle way, is either you are on the narrow way, or you are on the broad way.

The Wide Way! ” some call it ” God Understands; God see my Heart; Era of Grace””
This way allures multitude into it, and keeps them in it, off course ” the gate is wide, and the way is so vast and broad.” We have lot of travelers on this way.
~ You have abundance of liberty in this way;

the gate is wide, and the way is so vast and broad

,and stands wide open to tempt those that go right in. You can do whatever you like on this way, dress to kill, flaunt your boobs and say your nasty words. No body cares. You can go in with all your lusts, pride, arrogance, lasciviousness. This way give no check to your appetites, passion. You may walk how you want, carry different kinds of things and characters.
It is a broad way, for there is nothing to stop or obstruct your walk in it. There are many paths in it, you can make your choice on the kind and type of sin you want to endorse in. People in this way always use this slogan ” IT DOES NOT MATTER ” there is Liberty.
But remember Galatians 5:13. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
And also Romans 6:1. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

~ You will have abundance of company in this way: ” For many there be that go in at this gate and walk in this way”
If we follow the multitude , it will be to do evil: if we go with the crowd, it will be the wrong way. It is natural for us to incline to go down the stream, and do the most do.

That which should affront us all it is! that it leads destruction. Death, eternal death, is at the end of it ( and the way of sin tends to it).
Wether it be the high way of open profaneness, or the back way way of close hypocrisy, if it be a way of sin, it will be our ruin, if we repent not.

The Narrow Way. ” Way of Holiness”
~ The Gate is Straight. Conversion and regeneration are the gate, by which we enter into this way. There we practice Holiness and Righteousness by faith. We are out of a state of sin into a state of grace. We undergo the New Birth John 3:3-5
This is a straight gate, hard to find and hard to get through. It is a straight gate, we must strive, stoop and even become like little children before we can enter.
~ The Way is Narrow. We must go through the wilderness of life, we must overcome the temptations and attacks of the devil. We can only overcome when we navigate through the narrow way. On this way, we can not do what we like or have what we want, we can’t go where we want,we can’t just open our mouth and talk as we like. On this way, there is a Special Police officer that controls every bit of our life. ( Holy Spirit). We must put off the Old Man. Self must be denied, the body kept under subjection, corruption mortified, daily temptation must be resisted.
You have to endure hardness as a good solders of Christ on this way.
~ The Gate being so Straight and Narrow make Few Find & Choose It. Many pass it by, through carelessness, because they prefer liberty. Some look at this way but shun it.
Those going to heaven are few compared to those going to hell.

Both ways have an End, and I always say! ” The End Matters Most; and it will justify the Means!”
-The Narrow way will lead you to heaven. “As Christians we are not guaranteed a smooth ride, but we are guaranteed a Safe arrival to our destination.” , this way will lead us to Life in abundance and Everlasting joy.
The end of this way will make us forget all the pains and hardship. Isaiah 35:10
– But the Broad way has a bitter end, it leads to death.

The matter is stated clearly. Life and death, good and bad, narrow and wide. They are both set before us, we should remember what Moses told the children of Israel: Deut 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
The choice is ours to make, which way you choose. You are capable and you will take full responsibilities of your decisions.
I encourage you this day, delay not, deliberate no longer: But enter ye at this straight gate; know that it is by sincere, constant prayers and endeavors. I promise you, you won’t regret it. A new beginning will be given to you, a new door shall be opened.
It is true, we can neither go in nor go on, without the assistance of a divine grace; but remember grace is freely offered, and it shall not be wanting to those that seek it and submit to it.
Conversion is hard work, the road to heaven is not easy. But let this sink in your head. ” Heaven is By Force!!!!”
Luke 13:24. Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
Remember if you miss Heaven, it will be a wasted years, the pleasures of sin and this world won’t last for ever. There is life after this. We will live again, some might end up Holy, some might end up Hot.

You have heard the Gospel, make haste and delay not. Seek God now that He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6.
Proverbs 8:17. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

NON RINUNCIARE


La Bibbia è piena di numerosi miracoli gloriosi. In tutto il ministero di Gesù, la Scrittura rivela molte occasioni in cui il soprannaturale intervenne nella vita dell’uomo e della donna. Dal trasformare l’acqua in vino (non alcoliche) a Canaan, al risuscitare la figlia di Giairo dalla morta, ha portato aiuto e speranza a vite disperate.
“E Gesù andava attorno per tutta la Galilea, insegnando nelle loro sinagoghe, predicando il vangelo del regno e curando ogni sorta di malattia e ogni sorta di malattie tra la gente” (Matteo 4:23)
Sanando ogni malattia e ogni sorta di malattie e non c’era nessuna situation difficile da guarire per Gesù. Egli aveva potere su tutte le malattie.
Gesù ha risposto al grido disperato di Bartimèo cieco, in Marco 10:46-52 quando ha chiesto, che cosa vuoi che faccia per te?” Bartimèo ha risposto: “Signore, che io possa ricevere la mia vista.”
E Gesù disse: “Va’, la tua fede ti ha guarita. «E subito riacquisì la vista e seguì Gesù.
Le scritture dichiarano che «Dio non ha riguardo alla qualità delle persone” (Atti 10:34-35). Se la guarigione è stata estesa ad una sola persona come in tanti casi in tutta la Bibbia, allora è a disposizione di tutti.
I miracoli non sono concessi in modo selettivo su quelli ritenuti degni, ma sono a disposizione di ogni uomo, donna, bambino, ragazza e comprende anche te!
Il potere di guarigione di Dio non si limita ad un lasso di tempo nella storia o per certi individui, Egli è il Dio dei miracoli.
Un gentile, amorevole, padre immutabile che ha da sempre lavorato l’impossibile nella vita degli uomini mortali quando arriviamo a Lui e chiediamo con fede, aspettando di ricevere.
La promessa di Dio per la salvezza, guarigione e salute è la stessa a questa generazione, come è stato per tutte le generazioni nel corso della storia.
Segni e miracoli ancora accadono! Se avete bisogno di un miracolo oggi, non guardare le circostanze che state affrontando. Guardate a Gesù, perché nulla è impossibile quando versi la tua fiducia in lui.
