The Free State of Glory (Part 54): Better Days Ahead, Part 3 (Second Coming Chapel)

TEXT: Revelation 22:12-21

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

The Free State of Glory (Part 54): Better Days Ahead, Part 3

In our last message, we continued looking at the compelling invitation of Jesus Christ couples with the promise that better days are ahead. The saints of John’s day needed this message of hope; our world today needs this message of hope; and the world that is prophesied about in the Revelation will definitely need this message of hope. Alongside the message of hope we have the invitation to “Come.” The “Spirit,” that is the Holy Spirit, says, “Come.” But John writes that the “Bride” also says, “Come.”

The Bride is the Church, the body of Christ. We ought not to simply receive the invitation for ourselves, but we ought to pass it on. In recent years, much has been written and said about the kind of message the Bride, the Church, is sending to the world. What are we saying? Some are saying “come” and “sow a seed” into this ministry and you will be financially prosperous. Some are saying “come” and vote for this politician who we like. Some are saying “come” to our church and you will be happy and comfortable.

But, when we say, “come,” we ought to mean the same thing that the Spirit means. Warren Wiersbe writes, “Believers ought to invite lost sinners to trust Christ and drink the water of life. Indeed, when the church lives in expectancy of Christ’s return, such an attitude provokes ministry and evangelism as well as purity of heart. We want to tell others of the grace of God. A true understanding of BIble prophecy should both motivate us to obey God’s Word and to share God’s invitation with a lost world.”

We ought to pass along the invitation of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. And there are many occasions to do just that. The church’s message to those caught up in the sexual harassment scandals of this past year should be, “Come, and let Christ heal your wounds.” “Come, and let Christ transform your lustful heart.” To those affected by the opioid crisis, we say, “Come and let Christ break that stronghold in your life.” To those who lost family members to violence and natural disasters this year, we say, “Come, and let Christ comfort you in your despair.” To those who lost their jobs, their livelihood, their pensions, or what have you, we say, “Come, and let Christ give you a life more abundant.” To those world-weary, sin-sick souls, we say, “Come, receive salvation, a relationship with God, and a home in Heaven.”

Come, ye disconsolate, wherever ye languish,
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Here see the Bread of Life, see waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.

Church, will you extend the invitation today? Sinners, will you receive the invitation today? Christ says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest… Come, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

Allow me to show you how you can have rest in your soul by placing your faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.

How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 5 (Praying Through the Bible #277)


Daniel Whyte III

Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: Ephesians 6:18-20

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

We are in a series of messages titled “Praying Through the Bible: A Series on Every Passage and Verse Regarding Prayer in the Bible.” The purpose of this series is to encourage and motivate you to pray to the God of the Bible. We highlighted each of these over 500 verses and passages in the Prayer Motivator Devotional Bible. So far, we have completed 276 messages in this series.

This is message #277 titled, How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 5.

In our last message, we began talking about the prayer of agreement as one of the many forms of prayer we should employ in spiritual warfare. This prayer is based on Jesus’ words in Matthew 18:19-20: “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” The prayer of agreement was the first act that the early church carried out after Jesus’ ascension. Acts 1:13-14 tells us, “They went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.”

The prayer of agreement comes in many forms. It occurs when friends pray together, when a family prays together, when a church prays together. With the technology at our disposal today, the prayer of agreement not only takes place when like-minded believers are in the same room but the saints of God can now come together across the globe to pray in unity.

Now, from Jesus’ words — “if two of you shall agree on earth, it shall be done” — we must not get the idea that praying in agreement automatically guarantees answered prayer. R.C. Sproul warned against this when he wrote, “Jesus made this statement in the context of a vast amount of information about authentic prayer that He had already given to His disciples. We cannot simply come to a text and pick out a verse without examining all of the qualifications our Lord gave in His full teaching of prayer. To do so is to risk ending up with a magical view of the matter.”

So, when we pray in agreement, all of the other qualifications that our Lord has laid down still apply. For example: (1) Praying in God’s will; (2) Praying with a pure heart, not one that is tainted by unconfessed sin; (3) Accepting the fact that God’s timing may be different from our own; (4) Praying in alignment with the goals of Jesus Christ for His Church. One person who is not abiding by these principles can mess up the prayer of agreement for everyone else. As we understand from the accounts of Joshua and Achan in the Old Testament and Ananias and Sapphira in the New Testament, God’s Spirit will not move freely if there is sin in the camp.

Perhaps, one of the greatest benefits of praying in agreement with others is the level of encouragement that we receive from knowing that others are praying together with us. Prayer and spiritual warfare can be lonely disciplines. One of the devil’s tactics is to discourage us on account of our solitude. But knowing that we are not alone — that Jesus is with us and that other saints are with us as well — is a powerful defense against negative thoughts and emotions.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Now, if you are with us today, and you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, your first prayer needs to be what we call the Sinner’s Prayer. First, please understand that you are a sinner, just as I am, and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now this is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

Christmas According to Linus


Daniel Whyte III

Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: LUKE 2:8-14:

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

———-

Warren Wiersbe said, “The birth of Jesus drew the angels from heaven. How amazed the angels must have been when they saw the Creator born as a creature, the Word coming as a speechless baby. The best commentary on this is 2 Corinthians 8:9, and the best response from our hearts is wonder and worship. “Great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh”. The first announcement of the Messiah’s birth was given by an angel to some anonymous shepherds. Why shepherds? Why not to priests or scribes? By visiting the shepherds, the angel revealed the grace of God toward mankind. Shepherds were really outcasts in Israel. Their work not only made them ceremonially unclean, but it kept them away from the temple for weeks at a time so that they could not be made clean. God does not call the rich and mighty; He calls the poor and the lowly. The Messiah came to be both the Good Shepherd and the Lamb of God sacrificed for the sins of the world. Perhaps these shepherds were caring for the flocks that would provide sacrifices for the temple services. It was fitting that the good news about God’s Shepherd and Lamb be given first to humble shepherds. Shepherds are not easily fooled. They are practical men of the world who have little to do with fantasy. If they said that they saw angels and went and found the Messiah, then you could believe them. God selected hardworking men to be the first witnesses that His Son had come into the world. First, one angel appeared and gave the glad announcement; and then a chorus of angels joined him and gave an anthem of praise. For the first time in centuries, the glory of God returned to earth. If brave shepherds were afraid at what they saw and heard, then you can be sure it was real! “Fear not!” is one of the key themes of the Christmas story. Literally the angel said, “I announce to you good news, a great joy which shall be to all the people.” He used the word which means “to preach the Good News,” a word Luke uses often in both his Gospel and in the Book of Acts. We see here Luke’s emphasis on a worldwide Gospel: the Good News is for everybody, not just the Jews. What was the Good News? Not that God had sent a soldier or a judge or a reformer, but that He had sent a Saviour to meet man’s greatest need. It was a message of peace to a world that had known much war. The famous “Pax Romana” (Roman Peace) had been in effect since 27 B.C. but the absence of war doesn’t guarantee the presence of peace.,The Stoic philosopher Epictetus said, “While the emperor may give peace from war on land and sea, he is unable to give peace from passion, grief, and envy. He cannot give peace of heart for which man yearns more than even for outward peace.” The Jewish word shalom (peace) means much more than a truce in the battles of life. It means well-being, health, prosperity, security, soundness, and completeness. It has to do more with character than circumstances. Life was difficult at that time just as it is today. Taxes were high, unemployment was high, morals were slipping lower, and the military state was in control. Roman law, Greek philosophy, and even Jewish religion could not meet the needs of men’s hearts. Then, God sent His Son! The angels praised God at Creation, and now they praised Him at the beginning of the new creation. The whole purpose of the plan of salvation is “glory to God”. God’s glory had dwelt in the tabernacle and in the temple, but had departed because of the nation’s sin. Now God’s glory was returning to earth in the person of His Son. That lowly manger was a holy of holies because Jesus was there!”

According to Pew Research, 90% of Americans celebrate Christmas every year, however, fewer say that their observance is tied to religious belief. Only 46% of Americans say faith is the driving factor behind their observance of Christmas. On top of that, only 57% of all Americans believe four key elements of the Christmas story:

– That Jesus was born to a virgin
– That Jesus was laid in a manger
– That wise men, guided by a star, brought Jesus gifts
– That an angel announced the Birth of Jesus to shepherds

For years now, Christmas has been marred by a focus on shopping, gift giving, parties, decorating, feasting, and family gatherings. While all of these things are good in their place, none of them are what Christmas is about, and as these trends continue, young people and the growing non-religious segment in our country risk never knowing the true meaning of Christmas. Like Charlie Brown in the famous animated Christmas classic, many may soon be asking, “Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?”

Thankfully for Charlie Brown, he had his best friend Linus, quiet and insecure but portrayed as having the most wisdom among his friends, who not only knew what Christmas was all about, but quoted the passage we just read, without embellishment, on national television. Even then, way back in 1965, Peanuts creator Charles Schulz had to insist, against the wishes of CBS and his animator Bill Melendez, that the passage be included as the “meaning of Christmas.” Bill told Charles, “This is religion. It just doesn’t go in a cartoon.” Charles replied, “Bill, if we don’t do it, who will?”

The result is that little Linus has gone on to preach the Gospel and share the true message of Christmas every year since 1965. If you are confused about the true meaning of Christmas, you need only to pay attention to the angels’ message in Luke 2: “Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”

Christmas is about the Gift that God sent to man — a Gift that came at enormous cost to Himself. Christmas is about God extending to man the opportunity to be delivered from the dark night of sin and separation from Himself through Salvation supplied by His Son, Jesus Christ. Christmas is about great joy being delivered to all people — not like the temporary joy that comes from a holiday party — but a joy that shines in our lives like a star in the night sky. Without Jesus, Christmas is meaningless. You can take away the parties, the gifts, the decorations, the feasting, the shopping, and the gathering — as long as you have Christ, you have Christmas.

But Jesus is not just for a once-a-year holiday; He is for your entire life and your eternity. Without Him, Christmas day, nor any other day matters. And it is tragic to die without realizing this. As someone once said, “At the end of the day only one thing matters, and that’s Jesus, just Jesus, and nothing else.” Jesus matters because He alone can save you from eternal death, punishment in Hell, and permanent separation from a God who loved you so much that He sent His Son to die in your place. Don’t throw away this opportunity to accept the free gift that God sent on that first Christmas long ago. Here is how you can trust Jesus Christ as your Savior today.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

TEXT: Matthew 5:43-45:

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

———-

Charles Spurgeon said, “God constantly does that which many people regard almost as a crime, namely, doing good to the undeserving. It is the very genius of Christianity to help those who are utterly unworthy — to be kind and generous even to those who are pretty certain to repay us with ingratitude and malice.”

We often approach our enemies from the idea of trying to get back at them “prove a point” — that we are right and they are wrong. But Jesus commands us to love our enemies in order to prove something different — that we are “the children of our Father in Heaven.” You see, it is one thing to say you are a child of God, but it is another thing to act like a child of God. People pay attention to our actions more than our words. And, most importantly, God is watching to see whether we will emulate His Son in our behavior. In fact, He often allows enemies into our lives in order to test us and see how we will respond. If we respond to hate with hate, we act as children of this world, or worse yet, children of Satan. But if we respond with love, we show ourselves to be the children of God and citizens of Heaven.

And God does not ask us to do that which He Himself does not do. Verse 45 says that God “maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” As Annie J. Flint wrote:

His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,
His power has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

If God extends His hand of blessing even to those who deny His existence and speak ill of Him, we have no right to withhold kind words and actions from those who treat us wrongly. We, too, ought to give, give, and give again. The holiday we celebrate this weekend ought to be a great inspiration to us because “God so loved the world that He gave…”

Theologians refer to this truth as “common grace” — something that God bestows on all people regardless of their behavior. In Acts 14, Paul indicates to the people of Lystra that God’s common grace is extended to all so that all may have reason to look to Him and trust Him for Salvation. He said, “[God] left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.” When we do good to our enemies, it is a testimony to the work of God in our lives through Jesus Christ. If we love our enemies as Jesus did, we can not only make them friends, but make them brothers and sisters in the family of God.

——-

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

How to Overcome Temptation, Part 66 (Onward Christian Soldiers #190)


Daniel Whyte III

Daniel Whyte III

Welcome to the Onward Christian Soldiers Discipleship Class. I am Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society and pastor of Gospel Light House of Prayer International. The purpose of this time together is to teach young believers everything they need to know about their faith in Jesus Christ and provide them with the knowledge they need to live victorious Christian lives.

Our key Bible verse is 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.

— PRAYER —

Our lesson today is titled “How to Overcome Temptation, Part 66”

In this section of our Onward Christian Soldiers discipleship class, we are going to continue looking at specific temptations that are, as the Bible says, “common to man.” We are looking at what the Bible says about these sins so we can be aware of its dangers and so that we can hide Scripture in our hearts to use when we are tempted.

The sin that we are going to continue looking at today is the sin of “lust.” This is the third sin in a list of 12 temptations that comes from two sources — one ancient and one modern. The first source is a list that was developed by monks in the early church called “the seven deadly sins” or the “cardinal sins.” The second source is a Barna survey from 2011 which tracked the top temptations Americans admitted to struggling with.

Today, we will continue looking at 1 Peter 2:9-12. (Remember, the text of this lesson is made available online after each class, so you can go to our website GLHOPI.com, click the “Onward Christian Soldiers” banner on the home page, and begin to learn these verses by heart throughout the week.)

1 Peter 2:9-12

9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

First, let me say that in light of the demonic bombardment of the homosexual, LGBT movement over the past 10 years and especially under Obama, although they are guilty as hell and what they did is wrong as hell, I was happy to see such liberals as Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Russell Simmons, and Mark Halperin so strongly interested in women.

Even though many people would not admit it and even though President Trump was wrong as hell for thinking and speaking this way, but after 10 years of demonic bombardment from the homosexual, LGBT movement, when he got caught on tape saying he likes to kiss women and grab women, that convinced some men and women to vote for him.

Even though these men are wrong as hell in their behavior, I would humbly ask in the spirit of Christmas that America and even the women would forgive the men who have acknowledged their sin, who have apologized for it, and who are willing to apologize for it, and, again, throw the whole book at those who are not willing to apologize and admit they were wrong.

This passage is quite relevant to us today in light of the multitude of revelations regarding the sexual conduct and misconduct of people in positions of power in the media, entertainment, and politics. Apparently, many, though few would be likely to admit it, struggle with abstaining from the lusts of the flesh. But these people have the same struggle as you and I: Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, George H.W. Bush, Charlie Rose, Russell Simmons, Tavis Smiley, Al Franken, Roy Moore, Louis C.K., Steven Seagal, Mark Halperin, Kevin Spacey, and others. Regarding Kevin Spacey, I never cared for him; I always thought something was off about him. However, in the beginning of House of Cards, he almost had me convinced that he was all right. But now we know that he is a homosexual, and he has had the biggest downfall.

These are just a few of the more prominent names that you might recognize. There are many, many more who are guilty who won’t garner the spotlight of the press. But this list serves to prove that the issue of lust and the difficulty of abstaining from it is universal and one that very much needs to be addressed in our day and time.

From this passage, we have seen how that, through Christ, we are made “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, and a peculiar people.” As “the people of God” in the world, we ought to live differently from the people of the world. And one of the ways we demonstrate our differentness is through abstaining from fleshly lusts.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Peter closed this portion of his letter of encouragement with a moving exhortation for his readers to practice holiness. He reminded them that, in contrast with the disobedient who are destined for destruction, they were a chosen people. Peter again echoed the Old Testament, specifically Isaiah 43:20. ‘Chosen people,’ which used to apply only to Israel, was now used of both Jewish and Gentile believers. The responsibility once solely trusted to the nation of Israel has now, during this Age of Grace, been given to the church. At Sinai, God told Moses to tell the people, ‘You will be for Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ Now believers in the Church Age are called a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God. Christians are a special people because God has preserved them for Himself. As Israel was ‘a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God,’ so too believers today are chosen, are priests, are holy, and belong to God. Similarity does not mean identity.”

Peter further emphasizes our differentness when he writes in verse 11, “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims…” The word translated as “strangers” refers to “a person living in a foreign land alongside of people who are not of his kind.” That is how we are supposed to view ourselves in this world. Because we are only strangers, we ought not to act like the citizens of the world. Apparently, one of the marks of earth-dwellers is being shown up in the ongoing revelations regarding sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and lust-driven behavior in politics, in the media, in entertainment, and in business. Up until now, that type of behavior was seen as the norm, people looked the other way when it happened, some — both men and women — helping to cover it up. Because we are not of this world, it is a double shame when this type of activity is revealed in the church. We know better and we ought to do better.

That is essentially what Peter is saying in this passage. We ought to “abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” The word “abstain” means to “continually choose to refrain.” Abstaining from fleshly lusts is not a one-time thing, but something we have to choose to do over and over again. As John MacArthur explains, “Our souls are saved, we’ve received a new heart, we’ve been washed and regenerated, and there is a newness in us. But that newness is incarcerated in our unredeemed human flesh. And we have a spiritual battle because the new man in us is battling the flesh. And the flesh is where lust comes from.”

Abstaining from fleshly lusts is a hard battle — one that many have lost. But we can win it if we rely on the Holy Spirit and gear up to fight every day all day as temptation arises.

If you struggle with lust or any sin, take this passage to heart and begin to use it the next time you face that temptation.

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Saviour, John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and I want to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! I want to congratulate you on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

Jesus Reveals God’s True Intent Behind the Law, Part 54 — The Law of Love (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 322 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 689 since Jan. 1, 2016)



TEXT: Matthew 5:43-45:

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

———-

Amy Carmichael said, “You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.”

In this passage, Jesus lets us know that the only way we can truly love our enemies is by giving of ourselves — by our prayers, words, and deeds. He shares three ways that we can do this. First, He says, “Bless them that curse you.” We should invoke blessings over our enemies instead of wishing for bad things to happen to them. Then, He says, “Do good to them that hate you.” We ought to act in a manner that is positive in response to negativity from others.

This can be challenging especially when our enemies turn out to be those whom we least expect. For example, in Matthew 10, Jesus tells us that our own family members can turn out to be our enemies on account of the Gospel. He said, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.” Still, we ought to love them and act loving toward them. And Jesus gives us another way we must do this.

He tells us to love our enemies by “praying for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” Praying is probably the simplest thing to do regarding our enemies, yet so many find it exceedingly difficult. But prayer, like God’s agape love, is not dependent on our feelings or emotions. We can pray in a way that is not in alignment with our feelings, but is in alignment with God’s will. When we pray for our enemies, we hand over the situation to God and let Him deal with the other person as He sees fit. We also open the door for God to communicate to us how He would like for us to deal with that person in the future. In prayer, we can express our honest frustrations, and allow God to replace it with His grace, mercy, and love.

The world would be a much different, and a much better, place if we all chose to love our enemies, bless them, do good to them, and pray for them. As Abraham Lincoln said, “The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him your friend.”

——-

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life.

I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

What is the Gospel? (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 321 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 688 since Jan. 1, 2016)


1 Corinthians 15:1-4

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

1 Corinthians 2:2 says, “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

Ray Stedman continues regarding this passage, “The Good News is that God did something for us in that marvelous event of the Cross. As we contemplate the Cross, and the dying of Jesus in our place, we see that the good news of it is that God takes it seriously, and He is prepared to treat us in an entirely different way than we deserve to be treated on the basis of the Death of Jesus on our behalf. That is the Good News. There on the Cross, we are told, He dealt with our failures, He dealt with our rebellion, He dealt with our sinful, guilty lives. He did something about it, so that besmirched and dark and stained past does not any longer need trouble us. It has been set aside by the Death of Jesus, and with that fact we enter into hope and freedom. Of course, without that fact, life is really hopeless. This philosophy that many people have that God is a judge weighing up the good and the evil of life — and if the good outweighs the evil you get in and if it does not you have to go to hell — is not only unbiblical but it is illogical, for how could a God of holiness and justice and purity ever accept any kind of evil at all? His demands are for perfection and never anything less. He Himself is perfect, and He says to us over and over again, ‘Be ye perfect for I am perfect.’ What are we going to do with a guilty past in the light of that? The answer, of course, is the Good News. In the Cross of Jesus, God has already dealt with that sinful past. He offers to us freely the forgiveness of sins.”

Have you ever felt the weight of guilt on your shoulders? Have you ever known that you had done something wrong and were just waiting to see when and where the consequences would fall? Certainly, you have experienced this feeling in your life and it is not a good feeling. But there are people who go through their entire lives with this type of weight on their shoulders. They are always wondering about the things they have done and how that will affect their eternal destiny. Some deliberately do good deeds in an attempt to balance the scales. Some cross their fingers and hope they slide into heaven by the seat of their pants. Most die with questions on their mind. However, what Jesus did on the Cross removes the need for all this. If you place your faith and trust in what Jesus did and not what you are trying to do, you gain something beautiful — assurance. Assurance is confidence or certainty. You don’t have to live life with the weight of uncertainty on your shoulders. You can be sure about your eternal destination and the fate of your soul.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him.
