GOD IS LOOKING FOR MEN

JEREMIAH 5:1

RUN YE TO AND FRO THROUGH THE STREETS OF JERUSALEM, AND SEEK NOW AND KNOW, AND SEEK IN THE BROAD PLACES THEREOF, IF YE CAN FIND A MAN. IF THERE BE ANY THAT EXECUTETH JUDGMENT, THAT SEEKETH THE TRUTH, AND I WILL PARDON IT.

I BRING YOU GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS THE CHRIST.

I WANT TO APOLOGIZE TO YOU FIRST OF ALL IF I STEP ON ANY TOES, BUT YOU ALL KNOW BY NOW THAT I DON’T PREACH FEEL GOOD SERMONS....SOOOOOO

PRAY WITH ME FOR THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE AS WE ATTEMPT TO SPEAK TO YOU ON THE SUBJECT, GOD IS LOOKING FOR MEN.

I PREACHED THIS SERMON ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO DURING A REVIVAL IN LITTLE ROCK ARKANSAS AND A YOUNG LADY SITTING ON THE FRONT ROW SAID AND HE AIN’T THE ONLY ONE REVEREND.

TODAY I WOULD LIKE TO TALK TO THE MEN. NOT BECAUSE IT’S FATHERS DAY OR MEN’S DAY AND I’M CERTAINLY NOT TRYING TO OVERLOOK THE WOMEN BECAUSE AS YOU CAN SEE IT WOULD BE KIND OF SPARSE IN HERE WITHOUT THEM.

I WANT TO TALK TO THE MEN BECAUSE SOMEWHERE, SOMEWAY, SOMEHOW WE HAVE FORGOTTEN WHERE WE BELONG IN GOD’S SCHEME OF THINGS.

I AM ONE OF THOSE MEN WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT CHIVALRY IS DEAD.

YOU SEE, I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT MEN OUGHT TO ACT LIKE MEN

THEY OUGHT TO TALK LIKE MEN

THEY OUGHT TO DRESS LIKE MEN

AND THEY OUGHT TO REPRESENT LIKE MEN. (PAUSE)

THERE ARE SOME MEN TODAY WHO HAVE ADOPTED WHAT WE HAVE REFERRED TO AS AN ALTERNATIVE LIFE-STYLE.

THEY SAY TO ME, I HEAR WHAT YOU’RE SAYING PREACHER BUT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. YOU SEE GOD HAS NOT BEEN FAIR WITH ME. HE MADE A MISTAKE WITH ME. I’M A WOMAN TRAPPED INSIDE A MAN’S BODY.

I SAY TO THEM I DO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU’RE SAYING. YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES; YOU JUST NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN.

THE SCRIPTURE TELLS ME IN THE FIRST AND SECOND CHAPTERS OF GENESIS THAT GOD MADE MAN AND WOMAN AND PLACED THEM HERE IN A PARTICULAR ORDER, AND WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT THAT ORDER IS VERY IMPORTANT IN HIS OVERALL DESIGN AND PLAN FOR THIS WORLD.

IF YOU CAN’T SAY AMEN, SAY OUCH.

GENESIS ALSO TELLS ME THAT GOD HAS ENTRUSTED INTO MAN’S CARE, THE LEADERSHIP

THE GOVERNMENT

THE RESPONSIBILITY

AND THE CONCERNS OF THIS WORLD AS WE KNOW IT.

BUT WHEN WE TAKE IT UPON OURSELVES TO ALTER OR ERADICATE THAT WHICH GOD HAS ORDAINED AND COMMANDED IT ONLY LEADS TO CHAOS AND CONFUSION.

A FEW YEARS BACK THERE WAS SOMETHING CALLED THE MILLION MAN MARCH. I BELIEVE IN MY HEART THE REASON THIS MARCH WAS SO SUCCESSFUL WAS BECAUSE THE CHURCH FAILED.

WHEN I SAY CHURCH I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS BUILDING RATHER THE BODY OF CHRIST.

YOU SEE, WHEN I WAS A CHILD THIS BODY OF BELIEVERS WAS ALL SOME OF US KNEW, AND WHILE WE WERE IN OUR FORMIDABLE YEARS

OUR IMPRESSIONISTIC YEARS

THE WORD OF GOD WAS IMPLANTED IN US AND WE WERE MOLDED AND SHAPED INTO THE MEN WE ARE TODAY.

BUT IN THIS 2OTH CENTURY,

IN THIS ATOMIC AGE,

AS PARENTS AND LEADERS WE HAVE FAILED AS IN JEREMIAH’S TIME TO PRODUCE THE MEN THAT COULD TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITIES THAT WAS BESTOWED UPON US AS FATHERS, SONS, HUSBANDS AND PARENTS.

WE HAVE FAILED TO BECOME THE EXAMPLES THAT GOD HAS COMMANDED US TO BE AND WE HAVE ALLOWED OURSELVES TO BECOME CAUGHT UP IN THE CARES OF THIS WORLD.
