Summary: We are living at the time of the end. We are heading to a moment where some old acceptable values are now increasingly scorned, rejected and demonized.
THE REAL FOOLS
You are welcome,as we go on with our end time message of the trumpeter. Remember, It’s a moment we use, to share the undiluted word of God by speaking the mind of God- to prepare the saints for the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to warn the unbelieving world about the fast judgement of God. We also use this channel to point people to the right way,and urge them to reconcile with their maker.
It is good being in the presence of the Lord.David said in Psalm 84 verse 10 " For a day in God’s court is better than a thousand elsewhere. He would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of the Lord than dwell in the tents of wickedness" Really, it is good to worship the Lord, now that you are alive.
In our today's message, the Spirit of the Lord will open our eyes to some of the vital issues taking place around us,as we see the day of the Lord drawing near. God will open our eyes, and to understand many things happening around us. We shall look at some of them in the light of the revealed Word of God.
Let us pray.
In the name of Jesus Christ- Amen.
God Almighty, we thank you for your word. It is the way and direction for life. Speak to us in the living echo of your voice tonight. Impart wisdom and understanding. Reach my listeners by this truth and sanctify them, for your word is truth. Use me as an instrument of blessing to them and may I minister as you want me to. As I decrease, may you increase. You alone will receive all the glory. This we pray through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
The subject is " THE REAL FOOLS"
Romans chapter 1 verses 20 - 32
“For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse:
because that, knowing God, they glorified him not as God, neither gave thanks; but became vain in their reasonings, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God for the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts unto uncleanness, that their bodies should be dishonored among themselves: for that they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile passions: for their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men working unseemliness, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was due. And even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up unto a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, hateful to God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, unmerciful: who, knowing the ordinance of God, that they that practise such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but also consent with them that practise them”
From the passage before us, the Holy Ghost is pointing to you and I, some of the characters and events which shall be seen in the lives of men and women in the last days. The Word of God points to us the characteristics of the 21st century people which are fools in the sight of God. Look at it, “Men are without excuse after seeing the handwork of the Supreme Being" So, we are in a time when people know the existence of God, as the creator of the universe and life, but are not willing to glorify him. They are ingrates and vain in their imagination. Their foolish heart are darkened.
I think I'm painting some pictures here. Just follow me.
Look at verse 22 of our passage "Many people shall profess themselves to be wise and become fools" This is the exact time, the Word of God is talking about.
From here, we now talk about THESE REAL FOOLS.
I believe that a fool is a fool and there are advanced ones. No wonder, the word of life says that they were given over to reprobate minds. Which means, they can never repent. No matter, all efforts to pull them out from imminent destruction.
