Prophet Mike Thompson: The Cure for the Lawlessness Is the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit

"I want my audience to be as encouraged as have been that in the midst of this darkness. God says hold on. I'm not done with america because many people that seem to think it's over when the end times it's over you know rates to run into the caves but that's not what god has been saying to. You know others evil in the world there always has been always will be until the second coming of the lord. Jesus christ i mean we understand those things but there is victory also in the bible it talks about in the last days their scriptures in the new testament where the apostle paul particularly was talking about in the last days and he explains how that there would be all this kind of evil and lawlessness. Lawlessness is a good word. Apostle paul love to talk about lawlessness. He talked about this present evil age and connected that with lawlessness. How that the entire mass of human thinking devoid of the reality and the truth of god and the revelation of the holy spirit in our life produces a mindset in humanity to where they they don't believe in god and not follow after the morals of god and thereby there's a lawlessness that occurs spiritual lawlessness. We've seen recently. A lot of physical lawlessness legal lawlessness. If you will and But the holy spirit also inspired in the book of acts where on the day of pentecost when the holy spirit came and he moved in any birth the church and then they questioned the people around the heard him speaking tongues. They saw the tong tongues of fire on the people's heads it all that was going. They were praising god they were magnifying. God in people that were watching questioned that and so the first great sherman there where peter said that this is that that joel prophesy and he said in the last day jobs i will pour out of my spirit. So if the bible at the new testament says in the last days there will be lawlessness. It also says in the last days. I will pour out of my spirit. I'm saying that the antidote that you're for the lawlessness is the outpouring of the holy spirit

The Greatest Need in Our Life

"Judges chapter nineteen verse one in those days when there was no king in israel a certainly vite was so journeying in the remote parts of the hill country of ephraim who took himself a concubine from bethlehem in judah. This verse begins one of the most horrible stories. And all of the bible as one sin leads to another and another and by the end evil and violence unspeakable evil and violence or having their way. But the reason i read judges nineteen verse. One awhile lead us to pray. According to it is because it all begins with the rejection of god as king. In those days there was no king in israel. And if god is not king thrown of our hearts king on the throne in our lives king on the throne in the church king on the throne in our families just keep going where god is not honored and revered and worshipped as king then unspeakable sin and evil will follow the greatest need and every one of our hearts is to worship god as king. The greatest need in every one of our families is to worship. God is king the greatest need in churches to worship god as king. The greatest need every single person's life around us. Our greatest need in the world is to see and bald in revere and worship and follow god as king so we pray god today we confess you are the king of kings you're the lord of lords. Jesus you rule and reign overall and we worship you as king and we pray together today be the king of our hearts

Speaking & Living the Truth in Love With Dr. Albert Mohler

"Dr miller. Thank you so much for joining me again. You are such a voice of encouragement for me. As i listen to you on a daily basis in trying to make sense of really what can only be described as confusion and chaos. That something that you describe it as often as well whether it's coming to gender identity and the sexual and moral revolution that you talk about so much you're just the intricacies of policy in court decision so first of all. Thank you for that. Can you give a little bit of first briefing. Courage meant to christians who really just want to bury their head in the sand and to not look at. What's going on culturally and politically and just pretend like none of it's happening because we don't know what to do about it. Do you think it's important for us to kind of keep abreast on what's going on and why looks great to be with you. Allie beth and yes. I do want to offer that word of encouragement to christians not to stick our heads in the sand and try to ignore or be oblivious to what's going on because it's not just that we we have to be faithful to christ in the midst of our times we. We have to understand what we're up against there but it's even more importantly out of love for christ's church for fellow believers for our own children and grandchildren need to be thinking through these issues even ahead of the culture in order to be faithful when the culture throws the the next the next weapon at us and frankly they're coming fast and furiously and just love her own children and grandchildren and the determination that they grow up and be faithful to christ. It requires that we be very aware of the things going on around us. i understand. It's daunting and painful. And it's complicated. But the church of the lord. Jesus christ has all the resources we need to confront these issues with faith and without fear. That doesn't mean that that we don't understand what we're up against but we respond with faith and without fear. So that's a good word of encouragement knowing the truth is a good biblical. Principle and denying reality is never faithfulness.

Authentic vs. Phony Faith

"Christ having been offered wants to bear the sins of many will appear a second time not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him hebrews nine twenty eight. The question before us all is are we included in the many who sins christ bore and will we be saved at the second coming the answer of hebrews nine twenty eight years yes if we are eagerly waiting for him we can know that our sins are taken away and that we will be safe in the judgment if we trust christ in such a way that it makes us eager for his coming. There is a phony faith that claims to believe in christ. But he's only a fire insurance policy. Phony faith believes only to escape hail it has no real desire for christ in fact it would prefer if he did not come so that we can have as much of this world's pleasures as possible. This shows that a heart is not with christ but with the world so the issue for us is do we eagerly long for the coming of christ or do we want him to stay away wild. Our love affair with the world runs. Its course that is the question that tests the authenticity of faith. Let us be like the corinthians as we wait for the revealing of our lord. Jesus christ for strengthens one. Seven and like the philippians whose citizenship is in heaven and from it. We await a savior the lord. Jesus christ philippians three twenty.

"The with kevin mason. We've got a little rabbit. Living our backyard recently hate to go back and start cutting the grass and trimming down there clover that they enjoy so much but of course today is eastern. That's the day four well in theory. The easter bunny often wondered why is a bunny rabbit associated with easter. I figured for sure. It was something silly but i went back and started doing some research and found out. It actually has some christian or jen's it's all associated with rabbits and fertility and the virgin. Mary and as time went on the fertility of rabbits and the fertility of spring got associated with the virgin. Mary and then the germans came in and they associated the easter bunny with the season. It's fascinating reading. I was rather shocked. This goes back to medieval times. I would've never thought. I thought it was something silly. And something dumb that was created by some retailer back in the nineteen twenties or thirties. But no german. Protestants brought it to america in the eighteen. Hundreds and guess what. There is some association with lord jesus and the easter bunny go figure.

What Binds the Hands of Love?

"Christian March thirty one. What binds the hands of love. We always thank god. The father of our lord. Jesus christ when we pray for you since we heard of your faith in christ jesus and the love that you have for all the saints because of the hope laid up for you in heaven colossians one three through five. The problem with the church today is not that there are too many people who are passionately in love with heaven. The problem is not that professing. Christians are retreating from the world spending half their days reading scripture and the other half seeing about their pleasures in god all the while indifferent to the needs of the world. That's not happening. The people of god are not so full of love to god that they spend half their days in his word. The problem is that professing. Christians are spending ten minutes reading scripture and then half their day making money and the other half loving and repairing what they spend it on. It's not heavenly mindedness. That hinders love for the lost. At hurting of this world. It is worldly mindedness that hinders love even when it is disguised by a religious routine on the weekend. Where is the person whose heart is so passionately in love with the promised. Glory of heaven that he feels like an exile and sojourner on the earth. Where's the person who has so tasted the beauty age to come that the diamonds of the world looked like marvel's from the dollar store and the entertainment of the world feels empty and the moral causes of the world are too small because they have no view of

"New life. To me to live is Christ and it came from every part of God's word. The Lord seemed to quietly through my years in tears of bitterness whispered to me. You see for seven years with utmost sincerity. You've been trying to live for me. On my behalf. The life that I've been waiting for seven years to live through you. I've been here all the time. Although you have given mental consent to the truth, that I've been in your heart and I've accepted it As a theory, you have lived totally ignoring the fact. You have been busy trying to do for me. All that only I can do through Yeah. Major says with nothing to support the theory and without the testimony of any other known Christian to the fax I simply said to the Lord Jesus that night. Listen to this prayer. Well, it's this or nothing. If this is true. I'm going to thank you for it. And sheer cold blooded faith. I love that we're no evidence to support it. Other than what I've read in Scripture and nothing but the history of failure behind me. I'm gonna thank you that if you are my life and this is true, then you're my victory. You're my strength. You're my power. You're my future. You are the one who is going to go out now Clothes with me to do all that. It's so hopeless. I've been so hopelessly trying to do over the last seven years and then I went to sleep. He said. I got up the next morning to an entirely different Christian life. I want to emphasize this. I not receive one iota more than I already had for seven years. Had had the Lord Jesus equal to all my need and in whom I have been blessed with every spiritually blessing and heavenly things for the whole of those seven years, But I stepped out on my way to the university that morning with a new song in my heart. Was saying, Lord Jesus, I thank you for the first time in my life because this is your day. This is your day. I no longer have the burden of running my own life. At last I have a governor capable of governing. I love that. About freedom. At last I have a governor capable of governing..

"All right. let me begin this morning by just telling you that. I put a facebook post up the other day. I very rarely put facebook post up. This is why i don't. I thought it was a very simple post. I thought it was just made perfect sense to anybody. But it doesn't i in some number some seventy tom. Twenty verse number seven which says some trust and chariots and horses. We will remember the name of the lord our god and all that was going on in our country i just put some trust in chariots and then in parentheses. I put democrats some trust in horses. I put parentheses republicans. I said but we will remember the name of the lord. Our god and i got some questions about that. I didn't really mean anything by it. Cherry it doesn't really represent a democrat or horse doesn't really represent just there's two parties and there was a big battle going on in washington and i just thought it's time we need to trust them. Lord our god and so through that up there and they asked me. They said well. Aren't we the ones that drive the chariots and the person driving the chariot and. I thought it's getting too complex. It's then if you wanna put it that way. Then yes. I drove my cherry it down to the voting booth and i cast my vote for who i voted for. But i didn't trust in that person getting elected or someone else getting elected. I trust in the lord. Jesus christ that's the bottom line praise god and so. Please don't think too much into this. All i'm trying to say we can't put our trust in politics in his same in no kingdom in this world is going to stand in the last day. I don't care. If it's a republican administration or democratic administration. They will all fall when jesus christ steps foot back onto this planet. I'm looking forward to that day. Can you say amen on judgment day. You're not going to be judged by whether you voted democrat or republican. You're going to be judged by whether you were baptized in his name and filled with spirits. Praise god was in one of my sermons. Not too long ago that i preached and i made a statement i said i said it is not skin color that separates us culture nor is it cultural practices that separate us and i'll even add to that. Now it's not political parties. That separate us. What separates us as who put our faith in. Can you say a man. If we put our faith in jesus christ it matters not the color of your skin matters not the language you speak it matters not what country you come from it matters. Not what cultural practices you have. If we put our faith in. Jesus christ we are all one in christ jesus. That's my feelings about louis. So on christ. The solid rock. I stand all other. Ground is sinking sand. The greatest work you. I can do is preach jesus christ and him crucified to this world around us. It's the greatest work we can do and not get too caught up in politics. Because i'm going to be honest with you. Joe biden is not going to save america that president trump reelected. He would not save america. The church was the only hope. America's we need to be a praying people. We need to be a worshiping people. We need to be a preaching people. Bible says any in six and twelve. We do not wrestle against flesh and blood but we wrestle against principalities powers the rulers of darkness of this age against spiritual host of wickedness in heavenly places. That's our battle him in and that's why you did not see me in washington. That's why you did not see me when antifa was rioting you will not see me in the riots. You will see me in the prayer room. Do you wanna find me battling. Come and find me in the prayer room. That's where i do my fighting jews. Romans chapter thirteen verse eleven twelve. The bible says and do this knowing the tima that now it is high time to awake out of sleep for now. Our salvation is nearer than when we first believed the night. This far spent the day is at hand. That's the day of the lord. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness and let us put on the armor of light. Can you say amen let us walk properly as in the day. Not in revelry and drunkenness not in lewdness and lust not in strife and envy but put on the lord. Jesus christ can you say that with me. Put on the lord. Jesus christ put him on. That is an interesting statement. Put him on and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its lust put on the lord. Jesus christ which is what. I want to talk to you about today. Putting on the lord. Jesus christ and what we look like when we wareham. I'm wearing a suit today. It's getting a little small. I'll get back into it though. Because i've started eating rate since the new year except for a couple of suffered day here or there. I'm doing better. This makes me look a certain way. But i want to put on the lord. Jesus christ's and i want this world not to see the suit on wearing or the clothes that i'm wearing as much as i want them to see the spirit that i'm wearing so i asked you today. What should we look like when we put on the lord. Jesus christ well. The bible tells us exactly what it's like i want to read you from fiji's chapter six mockup. Put it up on the screen. It was going to read through it quickly versus thirteen through eighteen. Many of you if not all of you are very familiar with versus a scripture where the bible says therefore take up the whole armor of god take up the whole armor of god that you may be able to withstand in the evil day and i think we're living in the evil day. I don't know what day paul specifically meant when he said withstanding the day but this day certainly does fit the description of what he must have been talking about that you will be able to withstand in the evil day having done all to stand stand there for having. You're having girded your waist with truth having put on the breastplate of righteousness having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one and take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit. Which is the word of god praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit being watchful to this end with all perseverance supplication for all that was chapter six versus thirteen hundred eighteen. I would encourage you to reread those versus over and over. Not just today not just tomorrow not just this week but reread these verses regularly and understand exactly what it is that we're supposed to be putting on.

"I listen to several podcasts. Every week and it is especially a thrill. When i can bring onto host of one of the podcasts that i listen to on a regular basis because i feel like i know this person already but we've never had a conversation in this case. It's actor bradley. She he's the associate professor of religion at skidmore college. Which i look where that was bred as like you must be snowed in spirit man. I'm here in southern california for california boy whose deaths from maui. This is not my native environment so well a little bit of your background. You actually went to zoos. The pacific university. Which is right down the road from where i live where you got your be in philosophy and always wonder you know when a undergraduate majors flossy where they planning to end up. You ended up getting a master's in philosophical theology at oxford. And then you did. Some time in france doing postgraduate work in philosophy. And then finally you finish up at the university of california. Santa barbara doing your piece de and religious studies. I just want. It's tell my listeners. If you ever enjoy some of the conversations i get into on this podcast. With my guest that crosses over into this post evangelical political sort of realm. The person feeding me. Most of my information is now my guest on the show. That's kind now thank you. That's flattering thank you can. Let's start with your story. Because i think what set you up. Not just as an academic to have such a substantive take on what's been going on during the trump years before trump years where we're going to go after the trump years is also not just rooted in your research but it's it's based in your own life so tell us a little bit about that. Yeah i let me just say thank you for that flattering introduction and just. It's it's an honor to be here. So i've been looking forward to this for a long time and i'm really grateful so you know for me i. I grew up in north orange county. My father's japanese-american my mother's white woman from tennessee. And they met in the middle He's from hawaii and we grew up. Your belinda placentia fullerton area. I did not grow up religious. My dad was was culturally. Buddhist is what i would say he. He mowed the lawn. At the buddhist temple on maui in inkatha louis he. He went to japanese school there. But when i was thirteen and ask them about what it meant to be a buddhist to give me a book and i read it and i thought after i read it he would discuss it and i realized later. He gave it to me because he didn't know anything that was in it. He just didn't want to have me ask questions about what it meant to be a buddhist at fourteen. I had a very extreme conversion at a evangelical mega church and a conversion meant that i went from the kid who was hanging out with other teenagers behind the movie theater. Smoking and drinking and doing that kind of stuff to within months standing in front of the movie theater asking people if they knew my savior the lord. Jesus christ and if they knew where their so would be return ity. Tell us a little bit about how that dramatic conversion took place. I was invited to wednesday night. Bible study at rose drive friends church. rose drive is part of that network of quaker churches that richard nixon grew up in so i i was invited to that church by a girlfriend and i thought you know i'm fourteen. There's not a lot of ways to see your girlfriend on a with night off to pragmatist and there's no way mom can say no to this. If i want to go to church she's gonna say yes. So let's do it. This is a great plan She dumped me very quickly but that youth group became my second home. I found there what you would find in the ninety s at youth groups all over the place. Young cool hip leaders. They had tattoos. They played the guitar. We have a lot of fun games. The bible messages weren't boring and all of a sudden the existential angst. I had about the meaning of life and the depression that i faced throughout my entire childhood. I found answers found solutions to my condition. In jesus in god and so a very quickly i went from a kid probably hanging around folks who are going down the wrong direction drugs and alcohol and other stuff too when my mom asked me what i wanted for christmas on my When i was sixteen. I asked her how much she was gonna spend. She told me i said mom. I want you to give me that money. And i'm going to buy as many pamphlets and tracts and bibles as i can for people in nepal and i'm going to send them there because that's what's important and that's why how we should be using our money. Now i gotta ask you bread. Did your parents on the one hand. I'm sure they're going well. This is nice. He's not hanging around with those bad people anymore. The water bozos right. Okay right these these these yoga right but but at the same time is dislike. Did our son just joined a cult. So it's exactly what you said. For mom. there was times. I think she was relieved. But you know when your son is saying. Hey i don't buy me letterman's jacket for the basketball team. Send the money to nepal for bibles. I think she kinda wish. I was back to the guy getting caught with the kid. Smoking pot again. I mean she was kind of like. This is a little extreme. It was a lot harder for my dad. My dad's japanese-american guy. He grew up in the cradle of asian american. You know Communities on maui. His life was in the buddhist temple even though he he really didn't wasn't a practicing buddhist so for me to join a mega church especially church. That was ninety percent. White was really hard for him and it took a lot of convincing to let me go to the wednesday night. Bible study or the retreat or the youth group party or whatever.

Young people would beast standing on the running board of the car and They would be coming along the road from one house to another and they would be yelling out new yaw and that meant new year in our indian language and so When they were coming you had to be prepared. You had to have a treat for them and so my mother made cookies and she would make pie and cake and they could have their choice of what they wanted. And so while she was cooking that new year's day she heard the radio that was on a little shelf in the kitchen where she was working and that radio carried a wonderful gospel program every sunday for seventeen hours on. That station would be christian programs but on this day they were making special announcements about this special broadcast and they were saying tonight from eleven to twelve there was going to be a watch night service and there going to be music by acquire an that there is going to be special groups. There was going to be Trumpeter from the marine ban and a lot of wonderful things and then there would be a message by dr churchill. Who pastored the church where this broadcast was coming from and so my mother asked. My dad will be alright to keep the family up for this new year's watch night service and my dad said yes and so my mother my dad my oldest sister and then my sister between dorothy and i was all sitting there in the living room and we heard the music and it was thrilling and there was exciting and then after the music dr churchill got up and he brought a message in that message. That was just a few minutes. He told about how he could be set free from sin. He told how we could be forgiven. From our sins and toll how our life could be made clean from all our sins and it was such a piercing convicting message. That when he gave the invitation at the end he said wherever you are. If you're at home you can get up from your chair. Kneel down or you can get out of bed and kneel beside your bed or if you're driving your car and you're listening to the radio you can drive alongside and park and there you can pray wherever you are. You can pray and you can ask the lord jesus to forgive you of your sins and to come into your heart by trusting. He's finished work on the cross and so that night in our little indian home my two sisters got up from where they were sitting and they knelt down beside their chair and they cried like babies.

"Well after we take our cut, and That's the spirit of the enemy Well, said. So, David in the couple minutes we have remaining Can you talk just about how critical it is that young people stay involved in this fight? Also, what can what? What you see? And what Kind of what this gathering means to you, you know, were talking backstage of it's You know, it's critical importance. Historically, Ondo also kind of just some marching orders for people that want to get further engaged in this fight. Yeah. S o. I would say that a Zafar is critical importance. I've been seeing this phrase a cold civil war that we seem to be engaged in. Ideologically. We had art We just had, you know our election stolen by ideologues, right? And and and I just feel like through Charlie and through the movement, you guys we're gonna We're gonna win. Do you know that we're going to also we're gonna win. We're gonna win that We're gonna win the war. The battle. We're not this battle we're not sure about. But I can promise you we're gonna win the war. And God is raising up here with you guys. The next generation of really leaders, kings, queens influencers in our nation, and you're young now, but they'll be a day where you're empowered, and it is critical that the king is connected to the priest. What do I mean by that? I mean that if we're not tethered to a center of moral authority, that power becomes tyranny, and we start thinking like the bad guys think I can tell them what to do. I can tell them what to believe I can tell them how to behave and it's essential as you guys and I really mean this are raised up in position of kingship. And revelation tells us that in faith that we all are kings and priests with God, our father through the Lord Jesus Christ, and as you're raised up, Mike, my challenge to you guys. My art are marching orders are pleased. Tether yourself to the priest. Please tether yourself to a moral core that's based in eternity, not based in the fickle traditions or a new immediate battle that we want to win. Because often we lose the war by doing bad things to win the battle. I love that. So, Rob, I'm gonna ask you to wrap up with a non political question. But you went around and gave young people relationship advice for years, and you've a very good talk on it. So, as you know, take his much time as you need in 30 seconds, but Now you have a little more time than that, But just I think that's actually I think that Lot of young people are wondering exactly how am I supposed to proceed in this world because the kind of predominant culture and high school and college is definitely in one direction and Actually creates really miserable people. God created is relational creatures. And there's there's two genders. I know a lot of folks are confused about that. The idea From God's perspective is when a man loses his life. He gains it. Would be created different in these two.

Christ the King (Zechariah 9:9)

"Zachariah chapter nine verse. Nine rejoice greatly o daughter of zion shout aloud daughter of jerusalem. Behold your king is coming to you. Righteous and having salvation is he humble and mounted on a donkey on a cult the foal of donkey. You may recognize this first from the old testament based on the way it is quoted in the new testament in matthew chapter twenty one john chapter twelve when matthew and john are recording jesus triumphal entry into jerusalem when he's about to go to the cross and both matthew and john look back and quote from this verse behold your king is coming to you. This is a prophecy. This is one of many all throughout the old testament which ended of itself is astounding. Just awesome to think about that over and over and over again over centuries in bible books different times among god's people god gives a picture of a coming king and gives details about his coming and his life and what he will do here. Your king is coming to you humble and mounted on a donkey. Not on a horse picture of war but on a donkey. His picture of peace and he will be righteous having salvation. What a great phrase righteous and having salvation is he and he's humble. This is the picture of jesus that zachariah chapter nine verse nine paints and i just want to let it lead us to praise. Jesus for who he is. Lord jesus we bow our hearts before you as the king who has come to us the sovereign king of the universe who took on a robe of human flesh and lived among us died for us on the cross for sins of all who trust in you rose from the grave and ascended on high where you are right now we exalt you at the right hand of the father we love you. Jesus we exalt you praise you. You are the king who was prophesied promised centuries before you ever came. You're the center of all history all history before you looked forward to you all history since you came. Looks back to you even as we long for your return when history will be up ended all again all over again once and for all when you return we praise you as our righteous king. You're perfect in all your ways. You're right in all you do. Nothing in you is wrong. There's nothing around us in this world. That is perfect. Besides your word and who you are your righteous and having salvation with praise you for the salvation. We have in you. Jesus thank you for dying on the cross for our sins. Thank you for saving us from our sins. Thank you for drawing us to yourself. Jesus thank you for making away for us to have eternal life with you your righteous and having salvation. You are humble. Jesus we praise you for your humility. He is reprieved that we think about. Philippians chapter two. How you humble yourself became obedient to death. Even death on a cross. Therefore a father has exalted. You and giving you the name that is above every name that your name of jesus every knee will bow every tongue will confess that you. Jesus christ our lord to the glory of god the father so we say it together right now you are lord your lord your lord. We believe your lord. We love the fact that you are. Lord we submit to you as lord lead us as lord for your glory as our lord humble having salvation righteous are king. We love you.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule in having the conversation appreciate it. My pleasure. Mock leisure well today. We decided to discuss the great commission. But i like to get to know a little bit more about you. Tell us a little bit about your scherf. I'm gonna give you the long and short of my journey. Yeah i'm born born and raised in detroit michigan. I grew up Grew up at a situation that we It's pretty common Single parents and the In the city and struggled and ran the streets and the very similar story a lot of people That are ministry six to reach In the city of detroit but I born and raised in church. But i decided at the age of eighteen and my infinite wisdom that i was done with god. Donald church didn't want when have anything to do with this Beings that i thought was irrelevant in my life and Yeah whitten On my birthday when got got got a tattoo and decided that I'm done One one year later one year later. I'm asking jesus To say before for my fans and surrender my life to the lord. Jesus so what. A difference. A year year makes so they age of nineteen. I surrendered to christ and What what struck me was My church experience was Church with the destination church. Which is the place that people came. I thought it was just a social thing. I thought it was just something that people came and did and got their religious goods and services and when i began to read scripture sure I saw that there was. There should be an urgency behind the church that there should be a zeal and the desire to see people come to know and follow jesus and to see people From the wrath. Adjustment of god. So i think i for this is this is different. What i'm when i'm reading a scripture is different from what i'm seeing and what i'm experiencing and So i i got saved In september of two thousand and one in december just a few months. Later i was telling my pastor that i feel called to ministry they nineteen years old and everyone thought i was insane And i felt insane. But i knew that This burden at the lower had put on my heart with something. I couldn't took away until i got older Like i experienced Life transformation through the gospel. Jesus and i wanted that for everyone that i came in contact with since since nineteen. I have been Like old thanks for say running for jesus and it's been a wild ride and i've just seen so much of the lord's grace In the last twenty something years of kind of know about this tattoo was it. Like i'm done with you. Got a tattoo like it was it was it was. It was just my my my Rebellion me sticking my flag in the ground. I i gotta i gotta t and then. After i became a christian. I change the ten talk cross. Of course so how convenience. It was just This was hey I'm outwardly a rebellion. I'm choosing a life without you And that was a sign of that but Thank god his grace. He's gracious in carnegie and he caught me to himself and save me from myself so college. The tuesday curious the great commission. Let's let's start that matthew twenty eight we've got the great commission eighteen through twenty Mark fifteen sixteen says the same thing. the message basically is go out and preach my work Why do you think it is that you're the one that's supposed to do this. So i love the great commission. And it's been a passes that i've referred to when and and and and basically human oriented my life around this great commission and the part that i think we often overlook is The beginning part. Before right before get right. Before jesus gives the great commission inverse eighteen Verse eighteen matthew twenty aching and jesus Came and said to them. All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me so jesus is making. That's a very big weighty statement. All of the all authority in the entire universe has been given to me

The Different Tenses of Grace

"August Eleven The different tenses of grace. We always pray for you that are God. May Make you worthy of his calling. And may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you and you in him according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. Second Testimony Ins, one eleven and twelve. Grace is not only God's disposition to do good for us when we don't deserve it. We call this undeserved favor. God's grace is also a power from God that acts in our lives and makes good things happen in US and for us which we also don't deserve. All said that we fulfil our resolves for good. BY HIS POWER VERSUS ELEVEN And then. He adds at the end of verse twelve according to the. Grace. Of our God. And the Lord Jesus Christ the power that actually works in our lives to make Christ exalting obedience. Possible is an exertion of the grace of God. You could see this also in First Corinthians fifteen ten. By the grace of God, I am what I am and His grace toward me was not in vain on the contrary I worked harder than any of them though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. So. Grace is an active present transformative obedience enabling. Power. Therefore. This grace. which moves in power from God to you at a point in time is both past. And Future. It has already done something for you and in you and therefore it is passed and he's about to do something in you and for you and so it is future. Both five seconds from now. And five million years from now. God's grace is ever cascading over the waterfall of the present. From an inexhaustible river of grace coming to us from the future into the ever increasing reservoir of grace in the past. In the next five minutes. You will receive sustaining grace flowing to you from the future. In this you trust. And You will accumulate. Another, five minutes worth of grace. In, the reservoir of the past. For this. You give.

Marvel Worthy Words (Luke 20:25)

"Luke Chapter Twenty Verse Twenty Five. Jesus said to them. Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's. This verse comes at the end of what's probably the most prominent teaching from Jesus about government and the Gospels. So these religious leaders come to him they're trying to trap him and they say, we know teacher that you are true. You don't care about anybody's opinion for you're not swayed by appearances. You truly teach the way of God like it's total flattery this insincere praise on Jesus for selfish reasons but just waits for their question and they ask, is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not? Should. Repay them or should we not and the religious leaders know that if he says not to pay taxes to Caesar that would be inactive rebellion against the government but if Jesus says, we should pay taxes to Caesar then he might appear to be compromising his devotion to God and the eyes of others. So Jesus sees right through their hypocrisy and he says them, why are you putting me to the test? Then he says, bring. migden areas. Let me look at it. And they bring him this coin. That's worth about a day's wage. Jesus holding his hand looks them in the eye and he says whose likeness and inscription is this and they say Caesar's so Jesus responds with this I surrender a Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's and the very next verse says everybody marveled at his answer. So why are those words rendered a Caesar's of things that are Caesar's and God the things that are God's why are they marvel worthy Well. So much we could say here and I'm actually writing a short book along these lines that Lord Willing we'll come out in September. To help us think through biblical foundations of government as we approach a presidential election. So just how does God's word help us lead US guide. US transform the way we think about government about government leaders in ways that. Affect how we steward our voice and our vote in a representative democracy like we live in. So ton we could talk about here. That will that will be in that short book Lord Willing but what I want us to see now and how on us to lead into prayer is Jesus saying here that when it comes to how we relate to government if Caesar's images on a coin than in the sense that coin belongs to. Caesar's so Jesus. Affirming here what we see all throughout scripture that God ordains government as an institution under his authority for the good of people, which means we honor that institution we render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's we pay taxes. We stood our vote. We do all kinds of things in subjection to government to use language from Romans Thirteen for speeder chapter too but wasn't mean to render to God the things that are God's So. Caesar's images on a coin. Then where is God's image? And the answer to that question is breathtaking. Because God's image according to Genesis one is on every human heart. In other words though Caesar may be worthy of a coin from our pockets. God is worthy of our very hearts. And that totally transforms the way we think about government. So let's Pray Oh God. We.

He would make plain and simple. He did not care if that meant he'd be hung up on or more often than not he was a cold calling machine.

"I am glad to be with you at this moment. Speaking on behalf. Of the Lord Jesus Christ. So I say with Paul hear me patiently. This was a reasonable request Paul because there were times when Paul had not been heard patiently. And this incident before us is no exception. Governor festive has informed king or grip. Oh about a I r named Paul who has appeal unto Caesar retrial festivals has no idea what charges against him. He thinks king or grip a healthy vote. If he hears Paul the governor tells the king that the only thing he knows about the prisoner is that he says that one Jesus who was dead is now alive. Evidently, the governor is completely ignorant of Jesus and Christians Jesus has arisen from the dead and the church has been around for about thirty years. Thousands of people have become Christians and governor Festus never heard of it. What he was evident to king. Oh, grow that. I had never heard of Jesus he must've left up his sleeve. The name of Jesus and his apostles were all household names in king Herod, so family king Agrippa was the great grandson of Herod who tried to kill the infant Jesus. He was a nephew of Herod who tried Jesus at the crucifixion, then cut off the head of John the Baptist. He was the son of a Herod who beheaded James if I had told Paul they king, a grip. Oh wanted to see him cut off his head. It would have been no surprise what a shock. It was that are Herod wanted to hear him preach. So when the audience assemble Paul said, he was happy to make us defense before him and be sought him to hear me patiently. In his introduction. He reminded Ripa that he had been a chief persecutor of Christians. He knew that a grip was daddy. Hey, cut off the head of James. He could tell the king. That's not all of it. I myself murdered Stephen along with many others. That must have been something that got a grip attention, killing the followers of Jesus was a great passionate at one time. While the apostle Paul when he was known as Saul of Tarsus. The king must have thought. This was one of us at one time. What happened to make this great change? Any is it possible that my family has been wrong all the time? Could this Jesus who was crucified really be alive? Paul is skillfully trying to identify himself with ripple. Now hear me patiently the top item on Paul's defense was the resurrection of Jesus he said, why should it be thought? Incredible with you that God should raise the dead, ladies and gentleman. It would be incredible. If man could raise the dead one effort to do so was brought forth on one of those documentary. Investigative news reports recently..

"And father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of mercies and the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our affliction. So that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings. So through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation. And if we are comforted it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer our hope for you is unshaken for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort. We do not want you to be ignorant brothers of the affliction. We have experienced Asia for we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us relied not on ourselves. But on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril. And he will deliver us on him. We have set our hope that he will deliver us again. You also must help us by prayer. So that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing. Granted us through the prayers of many the grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of our God endures forever, man. The apostle Paul and the first Christians knew about suffering. And so Second Corinthians is a letter about suffering for Paul faith in Jesus Christ. Following the way of Jesus Christ was not about abstract doctrines or moralistic platitudes. This is the stuff of real life. It's not just for the temple or the synagogue everything. That Paul believes has been tested on the road. It's been tested in the cities. It's been tested in jail cells. It has been battle tested by whips and Iran, and hunger, and slander and shipwreck and snake bites and poverty and prisons and persecution. It has been tried by both suffering and success Paul's faith in God was arrested even to the breaking point for. We were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed. We felt that.
