The Message - Sermon

The Right Path

The Right Path.

God says: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you”—Hosea 4:6. All the essential knowledge of God is available to anyone who diligently seeks it. Remember that you cannot just take the Scripture out of context because it suits yourself, and assume that it is enough for your own audience. You should get the whole message.  Jesus said that “Scripture cannot be broken.”  The scripture must be carefully and completely shared in clarity and with the understanding of your listeners.

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and God states that He reveals His purpose and teaching to those mature enough to be instructed.  “Whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine?” There are many who act think they are mature enough,  but they really never look at how their behavior and attitude work in harmony with each other.  Many are being fed with false doctrines and fall to false hope. It is time to examine ourselves and face the mirror of life.  If we are at peace with God, we should not have a dot of fear asking; “Is this how God looks, like me?  If we have an anointing to carry His Word, for sure it will not come back void.

Our covenant is with God and not with death; whenever it comes, death cannot do us any damage. Christ defeated death and came bundled with our sin. Christ will no longer interfere between us and God but will remain our advocate in heaven where he is seated at the right hand of God.  He finished his work on earth and the Holy Spirit replaces Jesus according to his will and becomes our mediator as the kingdom progresses in the lives of mankind.

Remember that in the Godhead there is no usurpation of authority. In the Old Testament (Before Christian Era) it was God, the Father Almighty that was involved directly with human activities; the body is the temple of God.

In the New Testament, it was Jesus the Son (Christian Era)—the church is the body of Christ, and to date; (Revelation Era)—the Body is the kingdom and the Holy Spirit dwells in the body of believers; most of the time we neglect to recognize his presence in our body. To think of sinning and being separated from God make Sin our friend.

When we neglect the Holy Spirit, who are we going to turn to when we need help?

Jesus Christ without a doubt is a Savior, but, is He the Savior?

Jesus Christ is the bread of Life, but, who baked the bread?

Salvation is a gift; do you know who gave it?

Knowledge and understanding are part of the wisdom of God, when you received knowledge and reject it as Hosea 4:6 said you will also be rejected. Be like the Bereans, when they received knowledge they open their Bible and they discuss among themselves the truthfulness of what they heard.

Let us be a blessing to others and share the truth of the gospel.

To God be the glory!
