Study Notes:

As Jesus prepared to go to the Cross to die for our sins He wanted His people to be prepared. The devil never goes down without a fight.

Jesus was going to defeat

DEATH, the

DEVIL, and the

DISEASE of Sin on the Cross of Calvary.

Jesus knew that He would die a terrible death to secure our freedom from Satan’s servitude. And Jesus knew that the world and the Devil that runs the world’s evil would do everything it could to muffle the message of the Gospel. The Apostle Paul wrote:

1 Corinthians 2:7-8 (KJV) But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: [8] Which none of the princes of this world knew: for HAD THEY KNOWN IT, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE CRUCIFIED THE LORD OF GLORY.

God had a plan in Calvary. God had a purpose in Christ’s Cross. God has a people that He would save. If “the princes of this world” had known what God was up to the Pharisees would have took out advertisements FOR Jesus and not against Him. If Herod and Pilate had a clue as to what God was doing in Christ they would not have beaten Him and humbled Him and nailed Him to the Tree. They would have given a banquet, one which would have rivaled the Marriage Feast for Caesar himself. They would not have killed the Lord of Glory.

But God, willing to save whosoever will, would send His Son to the Cross.

Christ was not MURDERED, but MARTYRED.

2 Peter 3:8-10 (NKJV) But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 10 BUT the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

God tarried in judgment.

He tarried as His Son was nailed to the Cross.

He tarried as Jesus purchased our salvation.

He tarried when Jesus returned from the grave.

He tarried, and has tarried for over two thousand years now.

But there will be a time when Jesus returns. That is what Jesus’ parable is about today – that He will return. When He returns the unsaved world will be judged, but His Church will go into a Wedding Feast with Him. The Book of Revelation tells us that God will judge the false Church prior to the Wedding Feast of the Lamb. We read:

Revelation 19:1-5 (NKJV) After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God! 2 For true and righteous are His judgments, because HE HAS JUDGED THE GREAT HARLOT WHO CORRUPTED THE EARTH WITH HER FORNICATION; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her.” 3 Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!” 4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Alleluia!” 5 Then a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”

The false Church is judged. She was a harlot – a whore who sought to please the world and not her Bridegroom. She “corrupted the earth with her fornication”. She did not heed the call of Jesus, Who said:

2 Corinthians 6:16-18 (NKJV) For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” 18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.”

Does it seem that I’m chasing rabbits today? Preachers do that, but I promise you I am not chasing rabbits. When Jesus spoke of the Wedding Feast in our parable today He is speaking of two Churches.

There Is A True Church And A False Church

One Church is the True Church, one the false Church. Only one of these Churches go into Heaven. Only one of these Churches has pleased the Bridegroom, for she has lived for Him. She is alive BECAUSE of Him. Of the True Church we read:

Revelation 19:6-9 (NKJV) And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! 7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” 8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. 9 Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”

Let’s read Jesus’ parable:

Matthew 25:1-13 (KJV) Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Jesus wanted His Church to know that He is coming again. Jesus is the “Son of Man” mentioned by the Prophet …

Daniel 7:13-14 (KJV) I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. [14] And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

The Son of Man is coming again. Jesus is coming again. He is coming for His Church. When is He coming? We do not know. No one knows but the Father in Heaven. Jesus told us:

Matthew 24:23-24 (KJV) Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. [24] For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Matthew 24:27 (KJV) For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Matthew 24:35-36 (KJV) Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. [36] But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

No one knows when Jesus shall come, but He shall come. That is the point of this parable. That is it’s whole point. Jesus said:

Matthew 25:13 (KJV) Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Let’s break down the parable.

There Were Ten Virgins

Matthew 25:1 (KJV) Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Throughout the Gospels Jesus represents the Kingdom of Heaven various ways:

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed (Matthew 13:31)

The Kingdom of Heaven is like leaven (Matthew 13:33)

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden then found (Matthew 13:44)

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a dragnet (Matthew 13:47)

The Kingdom of Heaven is like an owner of a vineyard (Matthew 20:1)

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a king whose son was to be married (Matthew 22:2)

Today Jesus says that the Kingdom of Heaven shall be like ten virgins. Why virgins? In our sexually disturbed world today people are mocked for being virgins, chaste, willing to wait to make an intimate commitment until after Biblical marriage. Marriage is mocked today. People often have a try it before you buy it mentality. But God is clear. He created us as sexual beings, but not as animals. God created us to come together as man and wife to enjoy one another, to “be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth”. Marriage was given to us for pleasure, but mainly for procreation. God did not make us the way we are and then say “now go do as you want to do”. No, the Bible defines any sexual activity outside of the wedding bed to be sinful.

Hebrews 13:4 (ESV) Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

The Christian above all is to avoid sexual sin. The Apostle said:

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 (ESV) Flee from SEXUAL IMMORALITY. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the SEXUALLY IMMORAL PERSON SINS against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

1 Thessalonians 4:2-8 (ESV) … this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you ABSTAIN FROM SEXUAL IMMORALITY; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; …

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (ESV) … do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the SEXUALLY IMMORAL, nor idolaters, nor ADULTERERS, nor men who practice HOMOSEXUALITY, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Those who practice that which God forbids will not inherit the Kingdom of God. So Jesus uses ten VIRGINS – ten souls who avoided sexual sin. They are chaste people.

Matthew 25:1 (KJV) Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

The ten virgins “took their lamps”.

They all had lamps.

They were all virgins.

They all looked good.

They all “went forth to meet the bridegroom”.

All of them stepped outside of their comfort zone. They went to Church regularly. They went through the effort of getting dressed to meet the Bridegroom. But these ten were not all the same.

Matthew 25:2 (KJV) And five of them were WISE, and five were FOOLISH.

I want you to notice first of all that FIVE were one way and FIVE were another way. Numbers matter in the Bible. There is but ONE God, but He is in THREE persons. God created everything in SIX days, so SIX is the number of man. God rested on the SEVENTH day, so SEVEN is the number of God. So what is FIVE?

Five Is The Number Of Grace

  • The Fifth Book of the Bible is Deuteronomy, the second giving of the Law to Israel. It was God in Grace giving His Israel another chance at the Promised Land.
  • After Jesus rose from the grave He found Peter and the Apostles on their fishing boat. Jesus asked them (John 21:5) “Children, do you have any food?”. They replied from the boat, “No”. Jesus told them “Cast your net out on the other side and you’ll catch fish”. They did so, and caught 153 fish, so many they could not draw in the net.

John 21:11 (NKJV) Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-THREE; and although there were so many, the net was not broken.

1 there is but ONE God

5 the number of GRACE

3 God is FATHER, SON, AND SPIRIT

Grace is found RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF GOD. 1-5-3!

  • The FIFTH Psalm is a Psalm of Grace. The Psalmist said:

Psalms 5:11 (KJV) But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

God loves His Children saved by Grace. But this Psalm of Grace also states:

Psalms 5:5 (KJV) The FOOLISH shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

There were FIVE WISE VIRGINS but there were also FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS.

Five is the number of Grace, but only Five received Grace.

Five LOOKED LIKE they received Grace.

Who were the WISE Virgins? They were the ones who loved the Lord, who received Him as Lord and Savior.

Psalms 19:7 (KJV) The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the TESTIMONY of the LORD is sure, MAKING WISE THE SIMPLE.

The Testimony of God – the Gospel of the Good News of Jesus Christ, “makes wise the simple”. Salvation is not complex.

Acts 16:31 (KJV) …. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Believe yourself a sinner in need of salvation. Believe that Jesus Christ came to save sinners. Believe that God died for you. Believe that Jesus has finished the work of salvation in Himself, in that bloody Cross, and trust Him.

John 3:18 He that BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED: BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 3:36 He that BELIEVETH ON THE SON HATH EVERLASTING LIFE: AND HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT THE SON SHALL NOT SEE LIFE; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

The WISE Virgins were saved, not because they were virginal, but because they had believed on Christ. The FOOLISH Virgins were those who did not know God. They were FOOLISH. The FOOL hath said in his heart “there is no God” (Psalm 14:1; Psalm 53:1).

Matthew 25:3-4 (KJV) They that were FOOLISH took their lamps, and TOOK NO OIL with them: 4 But the WISE TOOK OIL IN THEIR VESSELS WITH THEIR LAMPS.

The OIL in Scripture is symbolic of the Holy Spirit (see Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has ANOINTED Me to preach the gospel to the poor.) A person who is saved by faith in Christ doesn’t just carry the Bible, but is indwelt by the Holy Spirit. The WISE Virgins had OIL in their lamps. They were prepared. The FOOLISH Virgins did NOT HAVE OIL. They looked good. They were virgins. They carried lamps. They were at a place of waiting for the Bridegroom. But they were unprepared.

Everyone Fails, But The Wise Are Prepared

Matthew 25:5 (KJV) While the bridegroom tarried, they ALL slumbered and slept.

As time passed both the true Church and the false Church slept. There are times we all fail God. We are the disciples sleeping in Gethsemane rather than praying with Jesus. We are Peter, denying the Master as the rooster crows. We sleep. We slumber. Trials come and wake us up to our failure. We all fail. But then came the midnight cry.

Matthew 25:6-9 (KJV) And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

The Midnight Cry came. All the virgins woke up. The world will awaken when Jesus returns. The false Church and the true Church will both awaken. Both will dust off their Bibles and trim their wicks. But the false Church and the false Christian will not have any oil.

Romans 8:9 (NKJV) …. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.

The foolish spent their time LOOKING saved but never came to the Lord for salvation. I cannot save myself, nor can I save you. Each must go to God, must call on Him, must seek His face. You must be born again of His Spirit. If a person is not born again that person cannot see Heaven. You cannot see Heaven without God’s Spirit, and Christ baptizes those who are His in the Spirit. The foolish said “give us some of your oil” but the wise said “go get your own oil”. And rather than look up and cry out to God the foolish went out to find oil.

Matthew 25:10-11 (KJV) And while they (the foolish) went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

The Lord came. Those that were ready were immediately and intimately entered into the marriage. Oh, what a glorious day that will be! “They that WERE READY went in WITH HIM”. They went together. What a glory to be with Jesus. What a joy to know Him as Lord and Savior. There is no purgatory, no waiting, no delay. When that midnight cry comes those that are ready go in with Him. WITH HIM. WITH HIM.

But then the door is shut. When the door was shut on Noah’s Ark I know that peope stood outside beating on that door, wanting entrance. They swam alongside the Ark begging and pleading. But there was only one door, and it was sealed until God opened it.

The door was shut.

Lord, Lord, let us in”.

Lord, Lord, You are a God of Love”.

Don’t leave us”.

The door to Heaven is shut because the foolish rejected the Door of the Sheep, Jesus Christ our Lord (John 10:7). The door of Heaven is shut to protect the prepared from the unprepared.

If Heaven were open to the rejectors of Christ it would not be long till Heaven were Hell!

Matthew 25:12 (KJV) But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you,

I KNOW YOU NOT.

It is too late. The time for salvation came and went. People attended the false, and rejected the true. Now the Bridegroom says “I do not know you”. What a horrible thing to be unknown of Christ. What a horrible thing to be shut out of Heaven, to know that judgment is coming. Those inside at the Wedding Feast are …

Revelation 7:14-17 (KJV) …. they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. [15] Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. [16] They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. [17] For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

What a glory to be in Christ! What a joy to know Him as Lord and Savior, to be blessed by His Presence, to know He is with you no matter what. But what a horror to be without Him. Do not delay. If you do not know Him, call on Him today. Give Him your life. Join with a true, Bible believing and Bible preaching Church. Do so now before the door is shut.

Do so for your sake!

God Judges Sin – Morning Message 7-23-17

Study Notes:

From the beginning of mankind, we have always tried to do the impossible. When man saw fire from the sky he studied it, and learned to make fire from friction, from flint and rock. When we saw birds flying man wondered how we could fly. Over time we learned how to seemingly defeat gravity – to soar into our atmosphere and even to the moon and beyond. We developed ways of communicating so that now we can sit in an auditorium like this and call anywhere in the world. We developed the Internet to share information, both good and bad, and Social Networks to share our lives with strangers.

How were we able to do all these things.

Because God made us in His image and His likeness.

God gave us the command to take dominion over the earth.

We have power and dominion because God has granted it.

We are not animals. We are the offspring of God. God gave us the ability to invent, to conquer, to make. We have even split the atom, and created terrible weapons that can kill millions.

But God is still God.

For all of science, for all of our advances, God is still the Only God.

Though God gave us the ability to invent and design,

God NEVER relinquished His authority.

God is God. God says:

Malachi 3:6 (NLT) “I am the LORD, and I do not change.”

We have changed. We have grown in knowledge and ability. We are doing amazing things as science and medicine advances. We grow daily. But God does not change. The Psalmist says:

Psalms 90:2 (ESV) Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

God is the First Cause Who is caused by none. God has no beginning nor any end. Though God has allowed us to adjust or modify His physical laws, God establishes what is right and wrong. God defines evil and God defines good. This is immutable and unchangeable:

God Judges Sin

I do not judge nor define sin.

You do not judge nor define sin.

God judges and defines sin.

Let’s read responsively the words of our Lord in …

Matthew 24:35-39 (KJV) Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. [36] But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. [37] But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. [38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, [39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

In just about every Church nursery and in many baby’s rooms across our nation there is a mural of Noah and his smiling animals. You know what I mean. There’s a cartoon Ark in multicolor, and oversized animals poking their heads up, with a smiling Noah at the helm. Underneath is the pretty blue water, and above a beautiful sky with a rainbow in it. Everyone is happy. It’s cute, and I’m sure comforting to the parents and the child. The Ark is a sign of hope. The rainbow is a promise of judgment passed. But judgment came before the smiling of the Ark.

God judges sin.

Jesus spoke of a time when He would come and judge the world, and compared His Coming to “the days of Noah”. People think that God no longer judges sin. People think that because we have imitated the birds and can fly, and because our technology has made us wise with worldwide wisdom, that the concept of sin does not exist. We believe there is no sin. We believe that the God of the Old Testament was a big old Meanie, but the God of the New Testament is nothing but Love. Since He is love, since the Scripture says:

1 John 4:8 (KJV) He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

that God does not judge sin. In fact, we think there is no sin today except what WE think is sin. But God judges sin. Jesus said:

Matthew 24:37 (KJV) But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the SON OF MAN be.

The Days of Noah and the Second Coming of Christ are tied together by Jesus. He said “Just AS the days of Noah were, so SHALL the coming of the Son of Man be”. The “Son of Man” is a reference to the Messiah, to Jesus Christ. Daniel saw the Coming of Christ:

Daniel 7:13-14 (KJV) I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. [14] And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Jesus is coming a second time. He came the first to to be the PROPITIATION for sin, the PAYMENT for those who will believe in Him. Jesus came the first time to suffer for sin, because God judges sin. Jesus will come the second time to overthrow the sinner and to protect His Children. God judges sin.

People say “God does not judge sin like He used to judge sin”. The Old Testament God judged sin harshly, but the New Testament God does not. That’s not true. Jesus compared His Second Coming with the Old Testament truth of the Noahic Flood.

The Flood Came Because People Rejected God

Matthew 24:38 (KJV) For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage …

What led to the flood that killed all but Noah and his family? The people were “eating and drinking”. These are normal things. We all eat and drink. We need this to live. The people were “marrying and giving in marriage”. Marriage is a beautiful thing. Marriage – Biblical Marriage between one man and one woman – is instituted of God. God told Adam and Eve

Genesis 1:28 (NASB) … “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it..”

This is a command of God. God commanded man and woman to come together, to be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth. Biblical marriage is a beautiful thing. It is what God designed us to do, to make children, to raise children to love Him. But here’s the key. God did not divorce Himself from mankind. We were to eat and drink – but with gratefulness to God. We were to multiply and fill the earth, but with hearts filled with love for Him Who made us and gave us every blessing. Man enjoyed the blessings of God. God gave us:

Matthew 24:45 … meat in due season …

As mankind drifted farther from God, God continued to watch and to wait. God in His Grace still provided good even to those who were evil.

Matthew 5:45 (AMPC) {God} makes His sun rise on the wicked and on the good, and makes the rain fall upon the upright and the wrongdoers [alike].

God continued to bless, even though man continued to curse. And God watched. Then one day God had enough.

It was not that mankind was eating and drinking and marrying that caused the flood. It was that mankind was living with no thought for God – only for self. And this degraded humanity!

Genesis 6:5 (KJV) … GOD SAW that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Evil had saturated creation.

No longer did man look to God to define evil.

Humanity took a vote, a poll, and whatever seemed popular was deemed OK.

To be right was no longer defined as being right with God,

but being in one accord with the majority.

Rather than preach what was unpopular the preachers decided to be popular, to change with the times. But the majority without God is not a majority. The world divorced itself from God. So God said:

Genesis 6:7 (KJV) …. I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

God must judge sin.

Everyone Died In That Flood

Because God Judges Sin

Matthew 24:38 (KJV) … For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,

The world continued eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage. Day after day passed. God called Noah and told him to build an Ark, and Noah had 120 years to do. The Bible says that

NOAH FOUND GRACE in the eyes of the Lord

Noah became a recipient of Grace.

He was saved by Grace.

Now what does that mean? First of all, it means that Noah was in the world, but his PURPOSE was not to please the world. His purpose was to please GOD.

The world was under the judgment of God, but Noah was not.

Noah was given a purpose.

His purpose was NOT TO COMPROMISE with the world, but to PLEASE GOD.

God is watching. Noah knows that. Noah lives for God.

Noah talked with God Those saved by Grace talk to God. God is their Father. They are born again. They pray because they NEED to hear from Him.

Noah listened to God God comes to Noah, and tells him:

Genesis 6:13 (KJV) And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is COME BEFORE ME; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

The farther man gets away from God the horrible society becomes. God judges sin because sin causes death. The wages of sin is death. God judges sin because He loves His creation. God judges sin because sin, once it grabs hold, destroys what it touches.

Like Leprosy, Sin is contagious, infecting all it touches.

The prostitute, molested by her family, is born of sin.

Like Cancer, sin eats into the life and kills.

The killer was beaten and abused by many.

Like Alzheimer’s, sin causes us to lose our minds.

To wander aimlessly looking for happiness where there is none.

God told Noah “build an Ark”. God gives His children saved by Grace a purpose. Our purpose is not to pacify or placate those in sin, but to do His Will. God told Noah EXACTLY what to do. God designed the Ark. Those who got in the Ark were safe. Noah promoted the Ark. He built the Ark.

Matthew 24:39 (KJV) … And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away;

Everyone was “taken away”.

The unsaved sinner was “taken away” by death.

The saved Child of God was “taken away” by Ark.

The rejector of God drowned of his own fault.

He could have been saved but would not get on the Ark.

Judgment was coming, but the world didn’t know when. The world watched Noah build the Ark. Noah spoke of the flood. Learned people studied the skies. Philosophers heard what Noah said, and saw what Noah was doing. But when the flood came, it took them ALL away. God judges sin, but God offers Grace.

I am sure that Noah had his share of visitors during that 120 years of building. Some came to make fun. “Do you REALLY believe that God will destroy the world? Do you REALLY believe that only those on the Ark will be saved?” They mocked Noah just as they mock the Christian today.

Do you REALLY believe that Jesus Christ is the only Way to God?

Do you REALLY believe He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that

no one comes to God the Father but by Him? (John 14:6)

Do you REALLY believe that a person must be born again? (John 3:3)

Do you REALLY believe that a person must turn from sin

and receive Christ as Lord and Savior?

As Noah built the Ark mankind mocked him. Some were kind. “Old Noah, he’s touched in the head. He means well, but he’s so out of touch with today’s person.” But Noah kept building, he kept listening to God, and he kept preaching that Gospel.

Get on the Ark or the flood will take you.

God judges sin, and judgment is coming.

I am not your judge, but God is – REPENT. Turn to Christ.

I am sure some people toured the Ark like people tour churches today. People will come if Noah serves a buffet. People will come if Noah has a coffee shop, or a school for the kids, or a swimming pool on board. People walked through the Ark and were amazed at its size, and pointed out it’s imperfections. “Noah, if I were you I’d put more than one window in here”. People toured, and advised.

You know, more people would get on this Ark if you’d relax that sin restriction.

More people would come to Church if you’d be more tolerant.

We could build a better Ark, just whisper sweet nothings.

The Ark may look imperfect to the world, but it was as God designed, and it was perfect. The world outside the Ark all drowned, but those within, walking on it’s wooden decks, were safe. Those surrendered to God’s Word were saved, but those who rejected Him were lost.

God Will Judge Sin But None Know When

Matthew 24:39 (KJV) And knew not UNTIL the flood came,

Some may have even begun to believe – a little – that Noah wasn’t mad. Perhaps they thought about getting on the Ark, but decided to wait a while. God judges sin, and Jesus is coming again to judge sin and save His people. But we do not know when.

Matthew 24:36 (KJV) But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

An old time preacher named Henry Smith said “a door that is almost shut is open; a man who is almost honest is a thief; a man who is almost saved is damned”. The great preacher C.H. Spurgeon declared:

Here then is the solemn truth of God – all out of Christ lost – all in Christ saved. All unbelievers perish – all believers are preserved in Him!”

We do not know when judgment will come, but the Scripture is clear:

Hebrews 9:27 (KJV) And as it is APPOINTED unto men once to die,

but after this the judgment:

In the days of Noah people were living their lives without God while Noah lived his life in God. They built up their bank accounts and families and possessions, but Noah built the Ark.

Genesis 6:22 (KJV) Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

Noah did what God told him to do. The world followed itself, but God’s Child followed God. Then one day God said:

Genesis 7:1 (ESV) … “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I HAVE SEEN THAT YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS BEFORE ME in this generation.

Noah, get in the Ark. Noah, do what God said. And Noah got in the Ark, he and his family, and God sealed up the Ark. Noah did not know when judgment would come. He rested in the Grace of God. He live in communion with the Lord Who loved him. He trusted God His Savior.

And all who were in the Ark were safe.

The rains came, and then the Ark looked good. But it was too late. Too late! The storm came and drowned both mouse and lion, both giraffe and hippo. As the flood of judgment came the Ark rose above the waters, but the people, young and old, died under judgment.

Oh my Beloved, Jesus is coming again. He is coming for His people. He is our Ark. Noah ignored the world and clung to God. He entered through the door when that door was open. Jesus said:

John 10:9 (NKJV) I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

The Ark had but one door by which you could enter. Jesus is the one Door by which you can come to God to be saved and to be sustained. He SAVES and SUSTAINS. Oh, enter by the Door! Enter the Ark while there is yet time. Judgment is coming. None of us know when. God bids you “Come into the Ark” (Genesis 7:1). Come to Jesus. In Him is the promise of salvation from God. Jesus is “the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). It is Jesus Christ alone that we are saved.

Romans 3:21-25 (KJV) But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; [22] Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: [23] For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; [24] Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: [25] Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

God must judge sin. Christ took the judgment for our sins on Calvary. Those in the Ark were protected from the flood because the rain and the wind hit the Ark. The Ark took the punishment, and those inside were safe. Christ took our punishment. It was Jesus Who was bruised for my sins and for your sins. All of our sins were

Colossians 2:13-14 (NKJV) And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

1 Peter 2:24 (NKJV) {Jesus} Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.

Jesus is our Ark. He is coming again one day to receive us to Himself. Are you ready? Have you received Him as Lord and Savior? Do not delay. God will save you from the gutter-most to the uttermost. God will love you. Receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Enter His Ark. Let God take care of you!

Jesus Is Coming Soon

1

Preached at Riverview Baptist on Wednesday, July 19 following prayer meeting. Wednesday night prayer meetings and Sunday night Church meetings are dwindling as the love of many grows cold and iniquity abounds. These things are prophesied by our Lord, and a sign that He is coming soon. Here is the audio for the service.

What follows is my study notes for the sermon. The sermon was preached without notes, Bible in hand, so the notes will not exactly follow what was preached. Let God be God!

Matthew 24:1-3 (KJV)  And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.  [2]  And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.   [3]  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

The Jews were proud of the Temple. Though Herod’s Temple was not as great as Solomon’s Temple (the first Temple built) the Jews were proud of it’s structure, of it’s finery, of the solidness of it. No Jew thought the Temple would ever be destroyed. Humans think that the things we make are so grand that they will stand forever. Mark recorded that …

Mark 13:1 (NLT) … one of his disciples said, “Teacher, look at these magnificent buildings! Look at the impressive stones in the walls.”

God is not fascinated with the big things we make. God is impressed with us when we make much of Him and His Son, but God is not impressed by our stuff. God made the earth and all that is in it. It is better to brag on God than it is on stuff.

Psalm 146:5-9 (ESV) Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, 6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; 7 who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets the prisoners free; 8 the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous. 9 The LORD watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

Our God is not impressed by our things. The disciples and all the Jews made much of Herod’s Temple, a temple built not by the godly but by an unbeliever, an Idumean (of Edom, an Edomite). Herod had no right to sit on the Throne of David. He did not love Yahweh, but was appointed Governor of Israel not by God but by Caesar. Jesus responded to the disciples bragging by saying …

Matthew 24:2 (KJV) … See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

SEE” (βλέπω blepō) ALL these things? All these things you have been fawning over – bragging on – shall be taken away from you. Israel shall lose the Temple that she so loves. Israel will lose the Promise Land that she was promised. Why? Will it be because God is not faithful? No, but it will be because Israel will have placed her love on the wrong thing. We must never love things more than we love God.

Matthew 6:33 (KJV) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

John 14:23-24 (KJV) Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

That which Israel loved was not God, but things, buildings, religion, stuff. And God will destroy the Temple that Israel thought was indestructible. In 70 AD Rome will tire of Israel and her constant rebellion, and will march on Jerusalem and destroy the Temple. The Temple furniture will be taken, the gold and silver melted down, and not one stone will be left on another just as Jesus said.

After Jesus tells His Jewish Disciples that the Temple is going to be destroyed we read:

Matthew 24:3 (KJV) And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

They ask Jesus to give them a sign of Thy Coming, and of the end of the world. The Jews believed that the Messiah would come and overthrow all things. They looked for the fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel, who wrote:

Daniel 7:13-14 (KJV)  I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.  [14]  And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

The Messiah was given the title “Son of Man” by Daniel, and Jesus had referred to Himself 98 times as “The Son of Man”. The Disciples believed that Jesus was the Messiah who was to come and conquer. They didn’t really understand Jesus when He said He had to GO …

To GO to the Cross

To GO as the Lamb of God

To GO and shed His Blood for us

To GO to the grave

They didn’t understand that Christ the Messiah must first ATONE for the sins of His people. Even after He died and rose again and prepared to ascend into Heaven the Disciples didn’t understand why He was going. They asked:

Acts 1:6 (KJV)  When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

God cannot restore the Kingdom to an unredeemed people. The Disciples were excited to learn of the Coming of Christ, the time He Comes in power to conquer this world. Jesus is coming again, and He will overthrow all dominions and power. He will rule and reign.

But before Israel can be blessed, Israel must repent.

No people will be blessed by God who do not follow God.

So WHEN will Jesus come again?

The Signs Of Christ’s Coming

I believe we are living in the latter days. But do not fear, because all these things are under the watchful eye of our Creator. Jesus told His Disciples:

  1. There shall be DECEPTION. Jesus said:

    Matthew 24:4-5 (KJV)  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man DECEIVE you.   [5]   For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall DECEIVE many.

Mormonism – founded by Joseph Smith – claims that Jesus began His existence as Michael the Archangel. The Mormons believe that Jesus was the first one created, and then He was used by Jehovah to create everyone else. When Jesus came to earth He was just a perfect human being. Mormon theologian Bruce McConkie states, “The appointment of Jesus to be the Savior of the worlds was contested by one of the other sons of God. He was called Lucifer, son of the morning. Haughty, ambitious, and covetous of power and glory, this spirit-brother of Jesus desperately tried to become the savior of mankind.” Among the Mormons salvation is not all of Christ, but part Christ and part man. The Mormon book The Gospel Principles states Jesus “became our savior and He did His part to help us return to our heavenly home. It is now up to each of us to do our part and become worthy of exaltation.”

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that Jesus is “a god” and not God the Son, and mistranslate every Scripture related to Jesus to make Him no more than a mere man. When Jesus died on the Cross He made salvation possible, but only if you prove yourself worthy of salvation. They write

Jesus, no more and no less than a perfect human, became a ransom that compensated exactly for what Adam lost … Thus, when God sent Jesus to earth as the ransom, he made Jesus to be what would satisfy justice, not an incarnation, not a god-man, but a perfect man, ‘lower than the angels.’ ”

There are thousands of cults the present themselves as the Christ. There are also many mainline denominational and non-denominational Churches that twist Christ. But Christ is not a mere man. He is God Incarnate. John wrote:

John 1:1-3 (KJV)  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  [2]  The same was in the beginning with God.  [3]  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

And the Apostle Paul wrote:

Hebrews 1:8-9 (KJV)  But unto the Son {the Father} saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom.  [9]  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Colossians 1:14-17 (KJV)  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:  [15]  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:  [16]  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  [17]  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

  1. There Shall Be DISTRACTION. Jesus said:

    Matthew 24:6-8 (KJV)   And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.   [7]   For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.   [8]   All these are the beginning of sorrows.

If the Devil cannot deceive, He will distract. There will be secular distractions. Wars, rumors of wars. Riots all across America and protests are in every news account. People openly plot to murder the President. The imbalanced shoot people while at a charity event. Nation rises against nation. What will North Korea do? Do they have a viable ICBM? Then there will be famines, pestilences, earthquakes.

These are what Jesus said “the beginning of sorrows”. The word “sorrows” is the Greek ὠδίν ōdin which means “pain of childbirth, birth pangs”. When a mother is in birth pain or in labor it is not unto death, but to bring forth new life. Though the mother cries now, there will come a time when a beautiful reward in the person of a child will be given to her. Jesus wanted His disciples to know that these bad things happening in the secular world were not toward death, but a precursor to life. Just like labor pains these things are temporary, but what comes after is much better.

When Jesus comes things will be much better!

  1. God’s People Shall Be DELIVERED UP As Civilization DECREASES. Jesus said:

    Matthew 24:9-10 (KJV)   Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.   [10]   And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

Those who stand in the light of Christ can be expected to be attacked by the darkness. The darkness hates the light. Jesus said:

John 15:18-19 (KJV)   If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.   [19]   If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

That part is understandable, but Jesus went further. He said that the sign of the end is when “many shall be offended, and shall betray one another”. Hatred and evil would increase not just toward the light, but even the darkness would battle. We live in a day filled with discourtesy and discord. Common manners are gone. People have no seeming basic decency. In my day we held doors open for people, but today people slam doors in other people’s faces.

We are less civilized today than we have ever been. As people drift from God, they drift from decency. Why? Because the wages of sin is death. Always. Rather than preachers address the problem false prophets rise up.

Matthew 24:11-12 (KJV)   And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.   [12]   And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

When false prophets RISE civilizations FALL.

When the pulpits are filled with MAN’S WORD,

GOD’S WORD ceases to be.

And as Iniquity or Evil ABOUNDS

LOVE DIES.

Love has died in many Churches – Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Anglican. Why? Because where sin abounds it destroys Grace. God’s Grace was given to make us more like Christ, not more like the world. What has God said to His Children:

2 Corinthians 6:17-18 (KJV)  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,  [18]  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

God’s people are meant to be IN the world but not OF the world. As iniquity or evil abounds it destroys unity with God. God is love. The closer we are to God, the greater our love will be. But the farther from God the farther from love. The more sin abounds, the farther from God we are. People say:

What does it matter? Let’s be inclusive. Let’s be tolerant”

If you rub against poison ivy you will get a rash. If you rub against someone who handled poison ivy you will get a rash.

1 Corinthians 5:6-8 (KJV)  Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?  [7]  Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:  [8]  Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Jesus was sacrificed for us, but many do not process what this means. He died because sin is horrid. He died because God loves us, and wanted to redeem us. But the sign of the times is that iniquity has grown, and love has decreased. C.H. Spurgeon said:

Oh friends, if the frost of sin rules in a Church, every tender flower is injured and nothing flourishes! Love is a sensitive plant and if it is touched by the finger of sin, it will show it. The lilies of love’s paradise cannot bloom amid the smoke and dust of unholiness.”

Israel and it’s Temple was destroyed by Rome because Israel and it’s Temple loved sin and loved God less. They rejected the Son. He came unto His own, but His own did not receive Him. He spoke and they would not listen.

Matthew 23:37-39 (KJV)   O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!   [38]   Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.   [39]   For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

As iniquity grows there is but one stay against it, and it is the love that God’s people have for God and His Word. As God’s people compromise His Word we cease being effective in stopping evil. Jesus warned His Church:

Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV)   Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.   [14]   Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.   [15]   Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.   [16]   Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

God’s people are to love God first. We are to put Him first. We are to stand strong no matter what may come. Jesus said:

Matthew 24:13 (KJV)   But he that shall endure unto the end,
the same shall be saved.

Those born again of God will endure to the end. We will endure because God is in us, and God is with us. Though the world will fail, and Churches cease, those who are Christ’s will continue on. As the world spins down and the end comes I can say with the Apostle:

Philippians 1:6 (KJV)  Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Those who are His will stand even when everything else falls. Why hasn’t Jesus come back yet? Jesus said that there is one crucial thing that must occur before He returns:

Matthew 24:14 (KJV)   And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and THEN shall the end come.

The whole world must hear the Gospel, THEN the end shall come. We must share the Gospel of love. We must tell others of His Cross. We must help missionaries do what they need to do in spreading the Gospel of His Kingdom. THEN Jesus will come.

I look forward to that day!

May God touch your hearts with His Word!

Story behind the song – He Hideth My Soul

Composser Fanny Crosby Writes He Hideth My Soul

She could not see with her natural eyes, but she could see with her heart. She could not explain what a human face looked like, but she knew the face of God. Blind from six weeks old because of a surgical mishap, her life was different than most, but it was not worse than most.

Fanny Crosby (1820-1915) supported herself as a teacher at a blind school, she had dear and close friends around the world, and she wrote and published thousands of beautiful hymns, many that are still sung today. Regarding her plight in life she wrote the following words:

“It seemed intended by the blessed providence of God that I should be blind all my life, and I thank Him for the dispensation. If perfect earthly sight were offered me…

Pride in Good Things is Still Pride

wonderful post

Found Who I Am

Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters.Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created. -James 1:16-18 (NIV)

I was -and am- full of pride..much more than I realized, which makes it even more dangerous. 🙂 You see, I was this good little Christian girl. I hadn’t ever done anything seriously wrong. Maybe you can see where this is going, even if I didn’t at the time?

I was proud of things that were good things! I was proud of my emotional strength, I was proud when people would compliment my maturity or physical beauty, I was proud of my purity, my writing, my ministries, my physical ability, my ability…
