Summary: we need to see what God has.
ALL SAINTS NEED TO SEE
Acts 26: 18To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
The spiritual blindness blocks the believer from being their best for our Lord.
Too many people don’t see any harm in anything another group don’t see any good in anything. That’s about the sate of things
1. The holiness of God.
Psalm 30: 4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
Psalm 97: 12Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness
The sovereignty of the Godhead
Psalm 47: 8God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness
The sacred purity of absolute righteousness
The sacrifice of the sinless Saviour
2. The helplessness of man
Rom.5: 6For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Depraved—his entire nature corrupt
Dead in trespassing and sin
Deceived, darkened and doomed
3.The horror of sin
Rom. 6: 23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Servants of Satan the Devil
Slaves to sins demands
Sentence of sin is death
4. The hopelessness of the lost
Eph.2: 12That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Incompetent of self change
Unable of change by self
Unbelief keeps them in this condition
5. Hell for the sinner
Rev.20: 11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
All chances are lost
6. Heaven for the saved
Rev.21: 1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
