THE THEOLOGY OF KNEEOLOGY


>JEREMIAH 33; MATTHEW 7

*SUBJECT TONIGHT NOT MOST THRILLING SUBJECT (I SOMETIMES SIGH INSIDE WHEN I HEAR PREACHERS ANNOUNCE THIS SUBJECT.)… NOT ONE THAT USUALLY GETS MANY “PRAISE THE LORDS” OR “AMENS”…THE SUBJECT BEFORE US TONIGHT IS ONE THAT 1 GREAT PREACHER SAID THAT “IS DISCUSSED MORE BUT PRACTICED LESS THAN ANY OTHER SUBJECT. AS WE BEGIN A NEW YEAR, I DON’T KNOW OF A MORE IMPORTANT SUBJECT THAT WE COULD ADDRESS TONIGHT.

UNDERSTANDING AND APPLYING THIS SUBJECT IS VITAL TO YOUR SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING BOTH NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.

1. STAND TEENS
a. JOSEPH –KEPT FROM GETTING BITTER AND CAUSED HIM TO PROSPER
b. DAVID –ENABLED HIM TO SLAY THE GIANT
c. DANIEL –ENABLED HIM TO PURPOSE IN HIS HEART AND SAY “NO” TO ALCOHOL
d. 3 HEBREW BOYS –TO STAND FOR GOD WHEN EVERYONE ELSE WAS BOWING DOWN

2. STAND PARENTS
a. SAMUEL –WAS ABLE TO HEAR VOICE OF GOD AND SAY “HERE AM I LORD” BECAUSE HAD A MOM NAMED HANNAH
b. THERE WAS A JOHN WESLEY AND A CHARLES WESLEY BECAUSE THERE WAS A SUSANNAH WESLEY WHO LEARNED IMPORTANCE OF WHAT WE WILL DISCUSS TONIGHT
c. JOHN, JAMES, AND JOANNA PRODUCTS OF PARENTS

3. STAND PREACHERS
a. MADE PAUL A GREAT PREACHER
b. ENABLED JONATHAN EDWARDS TO READ IN MONOTONE VOICE AND SEE THOUSANDS SAVED
c. WILL MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUCCESS AND FAILURE IN YOUR MINISTRY
d. EVERY GREAT PREACHER AND MISSIONARY FOUND OUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS
e. D.L. MOODY SAID THAT EVERY GREAT MOVEMENT OF GOD COULD BE TRACED TO THIS…

***PRAYER

JEREMIAH 33
3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

1. THE PLEA –“CALL UNTO ME”
2. THE PROMISE –“I WILL ANSWER THEE”
3. THE PROVISION –“AND SHOW THEE GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS WHICH THOU KNOWEST NOT.”


MATTHEW 7
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.


-TITLE OF MESSAGE –“THE THEOLOGY OF KNEEOLOGY”

***PRAYER

***I WISH I COULD IMPRESS UPON OUR HEARTS TONIGHT THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER. WE KNOW IT IN OUR HEADS BUT IT HASN’T QUITE REACHED OUR HEARTS YET.

***WE SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER FROM THE SERVANTS OF GOD.

A.J. GORDON –“THERE IS MORE YOU CAN DO AFTER YOU PRAY, BUT THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO UNTIL YOU PRAY.”

“WHEN WE WORK, WE GET WHAT WE CAN DO;WHEN WE PRAY, WE GET WHAT GOD CAN DO.”

J.H. GEORGE –“I WOULD RATHER TEACH ONE MAN TO PRAY THAN TEACH 10 MEN TO PREACH.”


“THERE ARE 3 SECRETS TO SUCCESS:1. PRAY
2. PRAY
3. PRAY

JOHN R. RICE –“ALL OUR FAILURES ARE PRAYER FAILURES.”

***WE SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER FROM THE SERVANTS OF GOD
***WE SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER FROM THE SCRIPTURES OF GOD

DISCIPLES NEVER ASKED, LORD, TEACH US TO:
-SING (PSALM 100)
-PREACH (“FOOLISHNESS OF PREACHING”)
-BE A SOULWINNER (“GO INTO ALL THE WORLD; ACTS 1:8)
BUT IN LUKE 11:1 –“LORD, TEACH US TO PRAY.”

BIBLE DOESN’T SAY:PREACH WITHOUT CEASING
SING WITHOUT CEASING
STUDY WITHOUT CEASING
SOULWINNING WITHOUT CEASING
BUT “PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.”

LUKE 18:1 –“MEN OUGHT ALWAYS TO PRAY, AND NOT TO FAINT.”

JESUS SAID –“MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER”


***TONIGHT LET’S LOOK AT 4 EXAMPLES OF PRAYER!
