Sermon #2: It’s Not Too Late for Rahab:
Scripture Ref: Joshua 2: 1-15
‘& Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim, two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. & they went & came into an harlot’s house, named RAHAB, & lodged there. 2. & it was told the king of Jericho, saying, Behold, there came in hither tonight of the children of Israel to search out the country. 3. & the king of Jericho sent unto RAHAB, saying, Bring forth the men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine house, for they be come to search out all the country. 4. & the woman took the two men, & hid them, & said thus, There came men unto me, but I wist not who they were. 5: & it came to pass about the time of shutting the gate, when it was dark, that the men went out: whither the men went I would not know: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them. 6. But she had brought them up to the roof of the house, & hid them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof. 7. & the men pursued after them the way to Jordan unto the fords: & as soon as they which pursued after them had gone out, they shut the gate. 8. & before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon the roof; 9. & she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you the land, & that your terror is fallen upon us, & that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. 10. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the waters of the Red Sea for you, when you came out of Egypt, & what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side of Jordan, Sihon & Og, whom ye utterly destroyed, 11. & as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your GOD, HE is GOD in heaven above, & in earth beneath. 12. Now therefore I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I have showed you kindness, that ye also show kindness unto my father’s house, & give me a true token. 13. & that ye save alive my father, & my mother, & my brethren, & my sisters, & all that they have, & deliver our lives from death. 14. & the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. & it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly & truly with thee. 15. & she let them down by a cord through a window, for her house was upon the town wall, & she dwelt upon the wall.’
IT’S NOT TOO LATE: Praise the LORD!
We SERVE this morning an OMNIPOTENT GOD with whom ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE.
Ephesians 3:20 ‘Unto HIM that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think…’
Bigger than all my problems, Bigger than all my fears,
GOD is bigger than any mountain, I can or cannot see
Bigger than all my questions, Bigger than anything
GOD is bigger than any mountain, that I can or cannot see.
Our GOD is MORE than a TALKING & DECLARING GOD, Our GOD is a DOING GOD.
There is NO IMPOSSIBLE CIRCUMSTANCE too far gone, that GOD cannot CHANGE.
There is NO PROBLEM too big that GOD cannot SOLVE.
There is NO SICKNESS that GOD cannot HEAL.
There is NO PRAYER that GOD cannot ANSWER.
There is NO SINNER too lost in their sin that GOD cannot SAVE.
There is NO BACKSLIDER too far from GOD that GOD cannot RESTORE.
There is NO MARRIAGE that GOD cannot PUT BACK TOGETHER.
All the king’s horses & all the king’s men could not put HUMPTY DUMPTY back together again, somebody should have CALLED UPON GOD.
I’m GLAD GOD doesn’t GIVE UP just because SOME PEOPLE GIVE UP!
GOD has CHANGED countless SITUATIONS & CIRCUMSTANCES & PREDICAMENTS & PEOPLE that were LONG AGO GIVEN UP ON by people.
There are SOME PEOPLE who because of their PARTICULAR SINS & their PARTICULAR LIFESTYLE & their DEGRADED STATE we find it so EASY to GIVE UP on them. We LISTEN TOO MUCH to the DEVIL when he tells us, “Why there’s NO NEED to PRAY for them. There’s NO NEED to VISIT them. There’s NO NEED to WITNESS to them. You’ll NEVER SEE them CHANGE.”
