Summary: Let us study doors. We make choices, these choices can open or close doors of opportunity.
PANDORA'S BOX? THE DOOR--- HOW CAN I FIND GOD?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
PANDORA'S BOX? In Greek Mythology the gods sent Pandora a box and she was forbidden to open it.
Pandora's curiosity was so great that she opened the box and when she did she loosened a swam of evil ,upon all mankind...
PANDORA'S BOX is a source of trouble, something that leads to more problems.
Why did Pandora feel the need to open that door?
EVE OPENED A DOOR---??? CONSEQUENCES?
HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED "LET'S MAKE A DEAL?" WHAT WILL THIS CHOICE BRING?
The show is about choices? Do you want: DOOR #1, DOOR #2, or how about DOOR #3?
You have a choice of doors...
You made a choice of what shoes to wear?
You made a choice of THE MOOD you are in?
You make a choice how you talk? Volume, tone, body language?
ADAM & Eve made a choice?
LOT'S WIFE (no name) had a choice?
NO CHOICE IS A CHOICE? Ask Agrippa?
DO WE EVER PICK THE WRONG DOOR? THE REALLY OF DOORS AND CHOICE ARE BEFORE US?
Do you think we really count the consequences?
Genesis 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
WHICH DOOR DO YOU WANT? WHAT DOES THIS DOOR COST ME? MY FAMILY?
DO WE RECOGNIZE THERE ARE SYMPTOMS WE NEED TO KNOW??
Hebrews 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ABUSE AND NEGLECT?
Can neglect be as deadly as abuse?
Near the end of the school year, my aide at Elk Knob Elementary (Virginia)was running copies of the SEVEN SIGNAL SIGNS OF CANCER for my class. She accidentally ran off too many copies. Instead of throwing the extras away, I asked the 5th grade teacher if she would like these to give out. As we were standing in the hall of the school, she looked at these 7 signs and said: I HAVE ALL SEVEN OF THESE SIGNS. She went to her doctor the next day and before the new school season started again, Pauline was dead? The lack of recognizing symptoms could be deadly?
ARE THERE SPIRITUAL SIGNS THAT CAUSE SYMPTOMS? DO WE LISTEN? CAN WE LEARN ABOUT COST FROM OTHERS THAT PICKED THE WRONG DOOR?
If we do not hearken unto the voice of God many things will happen. Each thing that happens is not a coincidence ... IT IS A SYMPTOM... Read Deuteronomy 28 and see the SYMPTOMS of disobedience.
Deuteronomy 28:23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.
THERE IS A SPIRIT OF GRADUALNESS, THE TIDE CAN SILENTLY DRIFT US OF OUR COURSE... AND WE FAIL TO SEE IT?
Do we understand blood in urine is a symptom?
Linda had a bad cough? The cough lingered and lingered? It got worse and worse. She told the doctor, so what?
A friend was talking one day and she was tell us she had a bad cough for a prolonged time. Her doctor told her it was LISINOPRIL. In some people this effective blood pressure pill causes a cough. So Linda made an appointment with the Doctor and told her again about the cough, and what we heard about LISINOPRIL? The doctor said: Of course, and immediately substituted a new B/P medicine and the cough was gone?
IT MIGHT PAY TO LISTEN TO OUR SYMPTOM?
THERE IS ONLY ONE DOOR? WHAT DOES THIS DOOR OPEN? PANDORA'S BOX?
DO WE UNDERSTAND SPIRITUAL SYMPTOMS?
SYMPTOM: a sign in the mind or body that indicates a disease is present of something not healthy, a sign of something bad... evidence...
WHILE WE MAY HAVE THE CHOICE OF DOORS, THERE IS ONLY ONE DOOR...
John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
