Summary: We don't have anything - BUT GOD!
1 Corintians 1:26-27
26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]:
27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
5Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth [is] mine:
6And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These [are] the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
1. IF WE WILL OBEY HIS VOICE.
Jesus is the shepherd, He is the door. We are His sheep
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
(Satan did not entered in by the door or proper channel, instead he was manifested through serpent) to decieved the mankind.
(But God- He entered into the world through the proper channel - the flesh! , born of a woman, that God was manifested in the flesh not to deceived people but to save His people)
THAT'S WHY WE ARE 150% CORRECT TO TEACH AND TO PREACH THAT IN ORDER FOR US TO ENTER GOD's KINGDOM IS BY BEING BORN AGAIN OF THE WATER - BAPTISM IN JESUS NAME,BEING BORN AGAIN OF THE SPIRIT WITH THE INITIAL SIGN OF SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES AS THE SPIRIT GIVES UTTERANCE. Acts 2:38!
John 3:6 - THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE FLESH IS FLESH; AND THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT.
The world today will continue to say "I am born this way"!
Yes, baby! THATS WHY GOD SAYS - YOU MUST BORN AGAIN!
THERE IS NO OTHER PROPER CHANNEL, THERE IS NO OTHER WAY - JESUS CHRIST!
3To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
(Satan called you by your sin)
BUT GOD - called you by name! be thankful about it.
and praise Him!
And give Him the Glory! Hallelujah!
When somebody called you "burn again - don't listen, it is not the voice of the shepherd!
God is calling you right now! make haste to listen and do not harden your heart!
Paul - Good example
5And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
6And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
7And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
Jesus voice says "it is very difficult to kick against the God, Paul"!
Like us, there is nothing that we can call upon on But God!
Paul heard and keep the covenant.
2. IF WE WILL KEEP HIS COVENANT.
Last Friday, God will put the laws into our minds and write into our hearts - Heb 8:10
HOW TO KEEP HIS COVENANT?
Answer: Remain or abide in the love of God
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 For without Me, you can do nothing!
What are the covenant of the Lord for us?
1. Love God - Mark 12:28-31
2. John 15:12 -That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
(#Thank you for the love#)
A. Since we hear and obey His voice Him
B. Since we keep the covenant, now God said
C. "You are a peculiar treasure above all people!
THOSE WHO HATH EAR, LET HIM HEAR!
1. A peculiar Treasure means (belonging exclusively to)
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
THE COMMON UNDERSTANDING OF THIS VERSE IS THAT THE GOSPEL OF THE LORD JESUS IS THE TREASURE HID IN A FIELD.
BUT I'VE GOT THE REVELATION/ MESSAGE FROM THE LORD THAT THE TREASURE HID IN THE FIELD IS NO OTHER THAN THE BELIEVERS.
A. WE ARE HIDING BY THE CLOUDS OF SINS/ UNRIGHTEOUSNESS HID THROUGH THE WORLD OF DISOBEDIENCE.
