TEXT: Luke 6:12

And it came to pass in those days, that [Jesus] went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

— PRAYER —

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 284 messages in this series.

This is message #285 titled, Prayer: The Power Behind the Life and Preaching of Billy Graham.

As many of you probably know by now, Billy Graham, the great evangelist who preached the Gospel live before millions and via radio and television to millions more, has died at 99. Right now, many are writing about, speaking about, and pondering what made his ministry and testimony so powerful — so powerful that he was called on by twelve U.S. presidents and the Queen of England for counsel and advice. Well, Billy Graham told us what made his ministry so powerful. He said, “Prayer is crucial in evangelism: Only God can change the heart of someone who is in rebellion against Him. No matter how logical our arguments or fervent our appeals, our words will accomplish nothing unless God’s Spirit prepares the way.”

Billy Graham got his example in prayer from Jesus Christ Himself whom the Gospels record many times as praying. The passage we have just read today states that Jesus “went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.” Regarding this particular verse, Warren Wiersbe writes: “Jesus spent the whole night in prayer because He was about to call His twelve apostles — His chosen messengers — from among the many disciples who were following Him. Why did He pray all night? For one thing, He knew that opposition to Him was growing and would ultimately result in His crucifixion, so He prayed for strength as He faced the path ahead. Also, He wanted the Father’s guidance as He selected His twelve apostles, for the future of the church rested with them. Keep in mind that one of the Twelve would betray Him, and Jesus knew who he was from the beginning. Our Lord had real human emotions, and it was through prayer that He made this difficult choice.”

In light of Jesus’ example and the great impact that one of His ambassadors has had on the church and the world, I would like to share with you briefly from a sermon Billy Graham delivered titled, “Power When You Pray”:

Many people like to believe that they are the masters of their own fate. That phrase is taken from a poem titled “Invictus” by the British author William Henley. He wrote:

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

These lines have become favorites among atheists and agnostics. It all sounds brave on paper but when death took Henley’s six-year-old daughter, Margaret, he was heartbroken and began to realize that he was not the master of his fate. When he died, all his bravado had disappeared. We are not the masters of our fate individually or collectively. How can men boast that they control their own destiny when viruses invisible even under powerful microscopes lay low tens of thousands of people every year? How can our country insist that with our military might, our tremendous wealth, and our foreign alliances, we are the masters of our own fate when history testifies that
God shapes the course of nations and oversees the rise and fall of political leaders? The world continues to wrestle with poverty, war, disease, and ignorance. As the population continues to explode, America is caught up in a stream of history that is beyond her ability to control. There is only one power available to change the course of history, and that is the power of prayer—the prayer of God-fearing, Christ-believing men and women. But today we have come to a place where many people regard prayer as simply a formality. We have no sense of coming to grips with God, except for the continuation of a venerated tradition. Yet how can we go on unless there is a renewed emphasis on prayer?

Thousands of people pray only in times of great stress, danger or uncertainty. However, Christ instructed His followers to always pray. So fervent and so direct were the prayers of Jesus that once when He had finished praying, His followers turned to Him and said, “Lord, teach us to pray.”

What a glorious thing it would be if millions of us would avail ourselves of the privilege of prayer! Jesus Christ died to make this communion and communication with the Father possible. He told us of the joy in Heaven when one sinner turns from sin to God and breathes the simple prayer: “God, be merciful to me, a sinner.” In scores of passages, Jesus Christ offered further guidance, and because He practiced what He preached, His whole life was a series of lessons on prevailing prayer. Jesus had only three years of public ministry, yet He was never too hurried to spend hours in prayer.

How quickly and carelessly, by contrast, we pray. We utter snatches of memorized verses hastily in the morning, then we say goodbye to God for the rest of the day until we rush through a few closing petitions at night. This is not the prayer program that Jesus outlined. Jesus pleaded long and repeatedly. It is recorded that He spent entire nights in fervent appeal. But how little perseverance and persistence and pleading we show!

Luke 18:1 says, Jesus “spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.” The Scripture also says, “Pray without ceasing.” This should be the motto of every follower of Jesus Christ. Never stop praying, no matter how dark and hopeless your case may seem. There is power in prayer.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

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.

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 trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. You have done the most important thing in life.

How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 11 (Praying Through the Bible #283)


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 281 messages in this series.

This is message #283 titled, How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 11.

So far, as we have considered the types of prayer that we should avail ourselves of in spiritual warfare, we have discussed: the prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement, the prayer of request or supplication, the prayer of intercession, and the prayer of thanksgiving. Today, we will look at another type of prayer — the prayer of worship.

The prayer of worship is simply a prayer that is packed with praise for God. We talk about worship a lot during church services. We sing songs of praise to God when we gather as a local body of believers. But how often do you just worship God throughout the week, on your own, by yourself. I am not talking about singing. (People have the idea that “worship” is epitomized by praise songs.) But prayer can be a form of worship as well. In fact, John MacArthur calls prayer, “the highest form of worship.”

The Old Testament gives us many examples of the prayer of worship. The book of Psalms is replete with the worshipful prayers of David, Moses, Asaph, and Solomon. Even when they were lamenting their woes or expressing frustration because of their enemies, they usually ended up with words of praise for God — for just being God in all of His Sovereign glory. In Psalm 34:1, David said, “I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” This tells us that no matter what kind of spiritual or earthly pressure we are under, we can always praise God. When we praise God in prayer, we remind ourselves of who God is. He is a miracle-worker, a providential provider, a constant refuge. He is not bound by our circumstances. We may face setbacks and limitations, but He never does.

John MacArthur said, “The distilled essence of worship is prayer. If prayer is anything, it is the highest form of worship that an individual can participate in because prayer is saying, ‘God, Your name, Your kingdom, Your will be elevated; not my will, not my kingdom, not my name.’ Godly prayer is worship — acknowledging His sovereign will and our utter dependence, confessing His glory and our sin, affirming our reliance on His wisdom, His grace, His power, His preservation, His protection, and confessing our own impotence and weakness. This is the purest form of personal worship — prayer that praises God.”

Throughout your day, take some time to praise God in prayer. Go before Him, not asking, not seeking, but simply celebrating who He is, recognizing who you are and what He has done for you. Through the prayer of praise and worship you can find peace of mind amid the storms of life. You life may be in shambles, Satan may be raining down blows on your head; but God is the same. He never changes. He guarantees us the victory through the blood of His Son. And we ought to praise Him for that.

How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 9 (Praying Through the Bible #281)

This is message #281 titled, How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 9.

Today, we are going to continue looking at intercession as a form of the “all prayer” that we are to use in spiritual warfare. Intercession is praying on behalf of someone else, bringing their requests and needs before God. Think of it as a lawyer pleading his client’s case before a judge.

In the Gospels, we have vivid examples of active intercession — one person bringing a request before God the Son. For example, the friends of a paralyzed man tore up a roof to get their sick friend to Jesus, a Roman centurion brought the suffering of his servant before the Lord, and a Canaanite woman begged Jesus to deliver her daughter from demon-possession. Maybe the people who benefitted from the answers to these prayers did not know enough to pray for themselves. But all they needed was someone else who interceded, someone else who intervened, someone else who took their place before God and brought their need to Him in the Name of Jesus.

That is what intercession is: We stand in the shoes of others and bring their needs before God in prayer just as we would bring our own. While some may have a special gift of intercession, all christians should intercede for others. In this very passage, Paul writes, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; and FOR ME.” Paul asks his spiritual children to intercede for him, to lift him and his needs up in prayer before God. It is very easy to get caught up in supplication — asking for our own needs, which we covered last week. But it is beneficial to do the work of intercession because it reminds us that we are not the only ones who need prayer; others are often suffering far worse things.

In spiritual warfare, it is good to take the focus off of ourselves and the fiery darts the devil is throwing our way and to pray for a brother or sister who is fighting the same fight or worse. The temptations we face are common to all. We ought not to think it strange when fiery trials come upon us. Instead of being concerned about yourself all of the time, take some time out to show concern for others by interceding for them. They need the extra protection and assurance that comes from prayer just as much as you do.

Daniel Whyte III Preaches Adaptation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Sermon, “But If Not…”

Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his sermon titled “But If Not…” at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta on November 5, 1967.


TEXT: Daniel 3:16-18

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.

17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

——

In this passage, we find three Hebrew young men confronted with the command to bow before a great golden image that the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Of course, bowing before any image is against the laws of God. However, the penalty for not bowing is being thrown into the fiery furnace and burned alive. Knowing the consequences, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego bravely refuse to bow before the king’s image and tell the king so to his face.

As they did what they did, they made it very clear that they knew that God had the power to spare them. They said that to the king: “Now we know that the God that we worship is able to deliver us.” They had experienced God in nature and they knew God as the creator. They had seen God in history. And they had seen God in their personal lives. They never doubted God’s power to deliver them.

But they also knew that God, in His sovereign reasoning, could very well choose not to deliver them. And they want the king to know that, despite this, they still will not bow. They say, “But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.” ‘But if not… But if he doesn’t deliver us, we still are not going to bow.’

The ultimate test of one’s faith is his ability to say, “But if not.” You see there is what you may call an ‘if’ faith, and there is a ‘though’ faith. The permanent faith, the lasting faith, the powerful faith is the ‘though’ faith. Now the ‘if’ faith says, “I’ll serve God if all goes well; if life is hopeful, prosperous, and happy; if I don’t have to go to jail; if I don’t have to face the agonies and burdens of life; if I’m never called bad names because of taking a stand.” That’s the ‘if’ faith. And a lot of people have the ‘if’ faith.

But, the ‘though’ faith is different. The ‘though’ faith says, “I will serve God even though things go wrong; even though evil is temporarily triumphant; even though sickness comes and the cross looms. Nevertheless! I’m going to believe anyway and I’m going to have faith anyway.” In the words of the Psalmist, “Even though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, even though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof, the LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.” Job got a hold of the ‘though’ faith when he said, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust him.” The question is whether you have an ‘if’ faith, or whether you have a ‘though’ faith.

There is a reward that awaits those who have a ‘though’ faith. For the Hebrew boys, somehow that burning fiery furnace was transformed into an air-conditioned living room. King Nebuchadnezzar looked in there and said, “We put three in here, but now we see four.” God was his servants in the fiery furnace. Don’t ever think you’re by yourself. Go on to jail if necessary but you’ll never go alone. Take a stand for that which is right, and the world may misunderstand and criticize you, but you’ll never go alone.

Ludie Pickett wrote:

I’ve seen the lightning flashing,
And heard the thunder roll;
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
Trying to conquer my soul;
I’ve heard the voice of Jesus,
Telling me still to fight on;
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

Wherever you’re going, tell the world that you’re going with the truth. You’re going with goodness. You have an eternal companion. The world will look at you and they won’t understand you, because your fiery furnace will be all around you, but you’ll go on anyhow. But if not, I will not bow. May God grant that we will never bow before the gods of evil.

The only God whom we ought to bow before is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob — the God who delivered the Hebrew boys — the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 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 Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 7 (Praying Through the Bible #279)

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.

— PRAYER —

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 278 messages in this series.

This is message #279 titled, How to Win at Spiritual Warfare Through Prayer, Part 7.

As we continue looking at the command to use “all prayer” in our spiritual warfare, we will now examine the third type of prayer — the prayer of request, also known as supplication. According to Merriam-Webster, supplication means “to make a humble entreaty; especially, to pray to God; to ask humbly and earnestly of; to ask for something earnestly and humbly.” The Oxford English Dictionary defines supplication as, “The action of asking or begging for something earnestly or humbly.”

Paul writes that we should pray with “all prayer and supplication in the Spirit.” Supplication in the Bible literally means a request or a petition for one’s self. Most of us don’t have a problem with this type of prayer. Our needs are ever before us, and it is good to know that the Almighty God cares about us and wants to hear us ask for even the smallest of needs.

The Bible includes many prayers of request or supplication. In the Old Testament, we have records of the prayers of supplication from the patriarchs, the psalmist, and the prophets. Those prayers might seem distant and lofty. None of us have ever led hundreds of thousands of people out of slavery, or been on the run from a deranged king, or fled an evil queen after defeating her pagan priests. So, it is in the New Testament — with Jesus Himself — that the prayer of personal request really hits home.

In Matthew 6:11, the Lord’s very own prayer, we are taught to say, “Give us this day our daily bread.” In the very same chapter, Jesus emphasizes the Heavenly Father’s concern and care for His children. “Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” God loves us so much that He does not want us to worry ourselves — to not even take more thought than is necessary — over even these basic necessities. Instead, through prayer, we cast all our cares on Jesus who takes them to the Father; and we are confident that our prayers will be answered and our needs met. Jesus says so Himself, “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” The same goes for housing and clothing.

When we use the prayer of request to ask for what we need from God, it does not mean that we go carefree. Instead of ‘taking thought’ for ourselves, we instead ‘take thought’ for the kingdom of God. Jesus says, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” The prayer of request is something that will help us stay focused on that which is most important. Yes, we should be industrious and hardworking in order to supply for our needs; but we ought not to expend mental or spiritual energy over creature comforts. Instead, let’s put all of that in God’s hands so that we can focus on the more important spiritual work that we ought to be engaged in and the spiritual warfare that we are engaged in whether we want to be or not.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
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.

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 trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. You have done the most important thing in life.

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

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,

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.

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!
