IF YOU CAN TAKE IT YOU CAN MAKE IT

REV.2:10

IN THIS SINFUL WORLD THAT WE ARE LIVING IN, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE HARD TIMES. WE ARE GOING TO BE TRIED.

[TESTED] BUT IF YOU CAN TAKE IT , YOU CAN MAKE IT.

A SEA GOING VESSEL MUST BE ABLE TO TAKE WHAT THE STORMY SEAS BRINGS. SOMETIMES THERE ARE TERRIBLE RAIN STORMS. BUT THE SEA GOING VESSELS ARE MADE TO TAKE THE RAIN. THEY DON’T HAVE TO TURN BACK TO THE DOCKS BECAUSE OF THE STORM. THE WIND GET FURIOUS SOMETIMES, WAY OUT IN THE SEA. THEY TELL ME MANY TIMES THE TORNADA WILL TRAVEL WATER.

BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF OPEN SPACE THE SEA GOING VESSEL IS MADE TO TAKE THE WIND. THEY DON’T HAVE TO FEAR THE SAILING FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER BECAUSE OF THE WIND STORMS. IT IS MADE TO TAKE THE CALLS OF THE MIDNIGHT. SOMETIMES WAY OUT IN THE SEA, THERE IS NO ELECTRIC LINES RUNNING. BUT MAN IN HIS WISE WISDOM AND ALL HIS TEXTNUE, HAS BUILT TRANSFORMERS EVEN OUT THERE SO IN THE CALL OF MIDNIGHT THEY HAVE LIGHT.

IN THIS WORLD SOMETIMES WE MEET WITH GREAT DARKNESS, BUT WE OUGHT NOT TO WORRY IF WE GOT A LITTLE LIGHT. IN OTHER WORDS IF WE CAN TAKE IT, WE CAN MAKE IT.

YOU SEE IT’S NOT HOW MUCH YOU CAN GIVE, BUT HOW MUCH YOU CAN TAKE THAT SPELLS THE VICTORY. WE OFTEN TAKE TIME OUT TO TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH WE ARE GIVING, AM I RIGHT ABOUT IT. BUT WITH THE SAME BREATH WE HEAR SO MANY CHRISTIANS SAYING I CAN’T TAKE IT ANY LONGER.

BUT I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU CAN TAKE IT YOU CAN MAKE IT.

A SICK PERSON IS TOLD BY THE DOCTOR, YOU MUST TAKE THIS MEDICINE OR YOU MUST HAVE THIS SURGERY OR YOU WON’T MAKE IT. NOW, SOME MEDICINE IS BAD TASTING, SOMETIMES IT MAKES YOU SICK JUST TO THINK ABOUT IT. THE SMELL OF IT MAKES YOU SICK, BUT IF YOU CAN TAKE IT, YOU CAN MAKE IT.

IT’S NO POINT IN GOING TO THE DOCTOR IF YOU ARE SICK AND ASK FOR MEDICINE, THEN SAY I DON’T LIKE IT AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT. YOU CAN’T MAKE IT, IF YOU DON’T TAKE IT.

BACK IN MY CHILDHOOD DAYS THERE WERE CASTOR OIL, BLACK DRUFF, HOME MADE COUGH SYRUP [OWN WORDS] IT WAS KINDER LIKE GERITOL, IT WOULD CURE ANYTHING, BAD SMELLING STUFF, BAD TASTING STUFF, BUT MAMA USED TO SAY, IF YOU CAN TAKE IT, YOU CAN MAKE IT.

THAT’S WHAT JESUS WAS TRYING TO EMPHASIS WHEN HE SAID, BE HOT OR COLD, BECAUSE IF YOU ARE LUKE WARM YOU MAKE ME SICK. SOME STUFF WILL MAKE YOU SICK, SOME STUFF WILL MAKE JESUS SICK. BUT IF YOU CAN TAKE IT, YOU CAN MAKE IT.

THE CITY OF SMYRNA WAS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES IN ANCIENT TIME, MOST OF THE PEOPLE THERE WERE WICKED AS THE CITY OF GOMORRA. NO WHERE IN ASIA WAS PEOPLE PERSECUTED MORE. BUT THROUGH THE GRACE OF GOD, THEY WERE ABLE TO FIGHT A GOOD FIGHT.NEVER BOWED TO BAAL. DURING THEIR GREATEST TRIAL, WHEN THEY WERE DENIED DECENT JOBS, DECENT HOUSES, THEY COULD SAY, IF WE CAN TAKE IT WE CAN MAKE IT.

NOW JOHN THE APOSTLE WAS EXILE TO THE ISLE CALLED PATMOS, WHEN HE HEARD WORDS FROM HEAVEN NEVER SPOKEN ON EARTH BEFORE. HE HEARD WORDS THAT SAID WRITE,’ BLESSED ARE THE DEAD WHO DIED IN THE LORD. FROM HENCEFORTH THEY SHALL REST FROM THEIR LABOR AND THEIR WORKS DO FOLLOW THEM.’ [REV.14:13]

HE ALSO SAW MANY MISTIC VISIONS, CONCERNING THE PAST, THE PRESENT, AND THE FUTURE, WHILE JOHN WAS THERE ON THE ISLE OF PATMOS HE WAS ABLE TO BE CARRIED BACK TO GENESIS ONE. WHEN HE REALIZED THIS WAS THE PAST, WHEN GOD’S VOICE TRAVELED OVER THE WATERS, WHEN THE EARTH AND THE WORLD HAD NO PHYSICAL FEATURES AND WHEN IT WAS VOID WITHOUT SHAPE AND FORM, WHEN IT WAS JUST A MILD DARKNESS AND GOD SPOKE AND SEPARATED THE HEAVENS FROM THE EARTH.

JOHN REALIZED THAT PAST EXPERIENCES THAT HAD TAKEN PLACE. THEN JOHN WAS ABLE TO STAND THERE AND SEE THE WORLD IN HIS PRESENT FORM. HE COULD SEE THE HILLS, THE MOUNTAINS, THE TREES, CATTLE, THE FOWL OF THE AIR, THE FISH OF THE SEA. JOHN NOT ONLY SAW THE PRESENT, BUT JOHN SAW THE FUTURE WHEN HE SAID I SAW A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH. FOR OLD THINGS HAD PASSED AWAY AND BEHOLD ALL THINGS BECAME NEW.

SOME TIMES WE THINK ABOUT JOHN BEING EXILED ON THE ISLE OF PATMOS FOR HIS TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST AND SOME MIGHT SAY,’ WHAT A VISIBLE PHRASE TO BE OUT THERE ALL BY HIMSELF, BUT JOHN KNEW HE WASN’T ALONE. JOHN KNEW IN HIS MIND THAT IF YOU CAN TAKE IT, YOU CAN MAKE IT.
