THE ROLE TO ESTABLISH ISRAEL IN THE LAST DAYS
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
WOW! Do we know in 2016 there were 33,000 distinct denominations? It is estimated by 2025 there will be 55,000 denominations? Wow? You can’t get along with others? Just go out and start your own?
C.H. Spurgeon penned the words: The time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have CLOWNS entertaining the goats.
WE MUST LAY THE FOUNDATION FOR THIS LESSON. GOD IS NOT CAUGHT OFF-GUARD. GOD HAS A PLAN FROM THE BEGINNING OF CREATION AND BEYOND THE END OF TIME… GOD HAS A PLAN… HIS PLAN IS MADE UP OF PROMISES… HEAR THE FIRST PROMISE GOD GAVE…
The first promise of the Bible is powerful and prophetic. The promise has a gift… God would love the world so much that he would give his only son. God knew man would fall and sin would destroy perfection. Jesus would come as the “SEED” of woman to restore the plan.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Man sold “THE KEYS” of authority that God had given to Adam and Eve in the garden. Have you ever had a stone bruise on the bottom of your foot? They are very painful. This speaks of battle of the persecution of the saints and of suffering. The bruise hurts, it may bring difficulty--- it does not bring to an end. The promise reaches far from total destruction. The first promise of God to fallen man and the church is Jesus will be victorious. This storm, this suffering, this temptation, this problem, this trial, this valley will RELEASE JESUS, GOD’S PLAN, and we will be over comers.
We must know God’s PROMISE and BY FAITH KNOW AND TRUST THE PLAN OF GOD. Now we walk in the last days and we must TRUST GOD’S PLAN WORKS FROM THE FALL UNTIL THE CLOCK SHALL NEVER TICK AGAIN.
NOW LET US WALK THROUGH TIME TO THE SECOND PROMISE GOD HAS FOR HIS PEOPLE. GOD KNEW THE NEED TO KEEP TRUTH TRUE AND TO BRING ABOUT A HOLY AND PURE RELATIONSHIP IN PURITY. GOD NEEDED TO SEPARATE HIS PEOPLE FROM THE WORLD’S SYSTEMS. THERE IS A TIME TO GET UP…
ABRAM/ABRAHAM WAS NOT A YOUNG MAN WHEN GOD SPEAKS HIS SECOND PROMISE. Abram was already 80? Abram was smart enough to not GIVE GOD AN OFFERING OF EXCUSES… Abraham did not know he had 100 more years?
Spell Good? Spell God? Spell Gospel? ---- GO starts every one of them.
Genesis 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
THE LORD GOD SAID: GET UP AND GO… God’s plan is you can’t stay here? You can’t always stay in your comfort zone? GOD CHARGES A MAN AND HIS WIFE… GOD IS REALLY CHARGING A NATION THAT WILL BECOME A BIG PART OF GOD’S PLAN. He achieve God’s plan you must be willing to OBEY. This environment where you are living is not conducive to release the PLAN of GOD! To be blessed you must break the ties that bind and or you will limit your faith’s growth.
TO KNOW THE PLAN OF GOD WE MUST BE SEPARATED, A PECULIAR PEOPLE. WE ARE CALLED OUT… CALLED OUT TO BE OBEDIENT TO GOD’S TASK!!!
WE NEED TO BELIEVE GOD TO BE CALLED OUT, SET ASIDE, TO HEAR THE CALL OF GOD TO BE FAITHFUL, A PECULIAR PEOPLE…
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
LARRY CARTER TAUGHT ME A GOOD LESSON ABOUT THE WORD PECULIAR. In Greek PECULIAR is made up of two words. 1. CIRCLE and 2. TO BE. God is the circle, we are to be the dot in the middle of the circle… We are to be the dot in the middle of the circle! WE ARE TO BE TOTALLY SUBMERGED. To be totally contained within the heart of God.
To illustrate this point of value consider a GLOVE. This GLOVE cost around $12.00 at the time it was purchased. The $12 GLOVE sold at auction for $60,000.00. Why? There was documents that proved this was the GLOVE that Michael Jackson wore, they could PROVE WHO IT BELONGED TO…
