WHERE DID EVIL GO?

2 CHRONICLES 7:14

INTRO: THE GREY AREA

1: LIGHT AND DARKNESS

A) THEY ARE NOT THE SAME

B) NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT

C) EXACT OPPOSITES

POINT: GOD TELLS US HE CREATED LIGHT AND DARKNESS ISA 45:7. PEACE AND EVIL, EVIL BEING TRANSLATED CALAMITY. THE FEELING WE HAVE FROM PUNISHMENT. NOT TO BE MISTAKEN WITH SIN, GOD DID NOT CREATE SIN, HE ALLOWS SIN AND DARKNESS TO WORK FOR NOW BUT DOES NOT CREATE IT. TODAY THOUGH THERE IS VERY LITTLE DIFFERECE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG.

2: THE GREY AREA

A) THINGS TEND TO BLEND TOGETHER

B) JUST LIKE THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY BETWEEN MORNING AND NIGHT

C) THE TWO SEEMINGLY BLEND BEFORE THE BIRTH OF A NEW DAY.

D) SIN- SIMPLE FORM IS REBELLION AGAINST GOD

E) TO TURN AWAY FROM GOD AND DENY HIS PROVISIONS FOR YOUR LIFE, HIS COMMANDMENTS, HIS CONVICTIONS.

F) TO KNOW TO DO RIGHT AND NOT DO IT IS SIN.

POINT: WHAT IS SIN ANYMORE, WE ARE BEING TAUGHT THAT SOMETHINGS ARE ACCEPTABLE NOW. EX: HOMOSEXUALITY, ABORTION, FORNICATION, SELFISH AMBITION. THESE ARE A FEW TOPICS, THE WORD OF GOD CLEARLY TEACHES US THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS AN ABOMINATION, HUMAN LIFE IS SACRED THAT GOD KNOWS US IN OUR MOTHER’S WOMBS, THAT WE SHOULD LOVE OUR NEIGHBORS AS WE LOVE OURSELVES. SOMEWHERE PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR VALUES BECAUSE SOME TALK SHOW HOST OR MOVIE STAR SAID THEY WERE WRONG.

BODY: 2 CHRONICLES 7:14

1: IF MY PEOPLE

A) IF, BIGGEST WORD IN THE BIBLE

B) LEAVES THE BALL IN OUR COURT

C) IT MEANS IT IS UP TO US

D) THE PEOPLE CALLED BY MY NAME

POINT: EVERYBODY IS NOT CALLED BY HIS NAME, THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO EVERYONE. THOSE WHO ARE SAVED THOSE WHO HAVE PROFESSED THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOR. THIS IS FOR YOU, THE TASK IS OURS.

2: HUMBLE, PRAY, SEEK

A) THE CONDITION OF OUR HEARTS IS THE FIRST STEP

B) HUMILITY TO BE HUMBLE IN HEART

C) TO APPROACH GOD WITH THE PROPER MIND SET AND ATTITUDE.

POINT: PRIDE COMES BEFORE THE FALL, BUT A HUMBLE MAN WENT DOWN JUSTIFIED FROM THE TEMPLE ONE EVENING WHILE PRAYING NEXT TO A PHARISEE.

A) PRAY

B) PETITION GOD WITH OUR PRAYERS

C) SPEAK WITH HIM EVERY MOMENT OF OUR DAYS

POINT: GOD’S PEOPLE HAVE TO PRAY, PRAYER IS THE MEANS TO BRING DELIVERANCE DOWN FROM THE HEAVENS. GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES.

A) SEEK- TO LOOK FOR

B) TRUST AND BELIEVE THAT GOD IS WORKING

C) GOD IS GETTING THE GLORY

D) LOOKING FOR HIM IN THINGS

POINT: HUMBLY PRAYING PEOPLE SEEKING GOD WILL ALWAYS YEILD FRUITFUL RESULTS.

CLOSING: THE WORLD

1: SOCIETY IS BLIND TO SIN

A) WE MEASURE RIGHT AND WRONG ON A SCALE

B) OUR SYMBOL FOR JUSTICE IS HOLDING A MEASURING SCALE.

C) SIN IS SIN TO GOD, THERE IS NO BIG OR LARGE, LITTLE OR SMALL

POINT: THE WORLD WISHES FOR THE CHURCH TO BE SILENT TO BE LULLED IN TO THIS GRAY AREA WHERE THE LINES OF HOLINESS AND SIN ARE BLURRED OUT. ONLY THE BIG THINGS MATTER EX: MURDER, THEFT, ETC. THEY ARE AWFUL THINGS AND GOD WILL JUDGE US ALL BUT OPEN REBELLION TO GOD IS JUST AS BAD AS ANY CRIME WE COMMIT IN SOCIETY.

2: TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS

A) HOW CAN AMERICA DO THAT IF THE CHURCH DOES NOT ESTABLISH WHAT WICKED IS?

B) HOW CAN PEOPLE DO THIS IF NO ONE EVER SPEAKS UP

C) HOW CAN THE CHRISTIAN KNW IF HE OR SHE NEVER PRAYS OR READS THEIR BIBLE.
