"By Faith" from Hebrews 11

Doubt is the opposite of Faith, without faith we can't please God.

Faith is waiting patiently for something to happen and not wishing, faith is believing and taking steps by steps based on God's word and God works. We don't know what tomorrow holds but God knows, we see the world around us; and we know there's a creator. Example if we see a building you wouldn't think it's an accident product of evolution of course there's a designer an architech and engineer and just like
human being is not a product of evolution, there's a designer - God.
God created everything according to His kind, we came from God it's important to have a relationship with our creator by faith.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by Faith, not by sight.

Romans 8:24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

To have relationship with God you can't come by traditions but by faith through Jesus, anyone who says they believe God but not to Jesus then you can't have relationship to God; there's no other way except through Jesus - Believe in our heart.
If we believe that Jesus is coming back any moment then we are going to live everyday to please God.
the signs of the times and the end of the Age Matthew 24:3

Live to please God

Hebrews 11:6 But without Faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

If we live for pleasure of this world... all are temporary but if we live for God we will have everlasting happiness.

Faith without works is dead. The evidence of faith are:

  1. Prayer = eagerly seeking God. And God will secretly reward you.

  2. Kind and Loving to your neighbor.
    By faith Noah build the ark for 120 years and he rejected the world.

  3. Set your mind at above not on things of the world. Live your life for Heaven not on Earth.

Philippians 3:20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ

Don't look back at the world when they are having fun. Remember our world is temporary, don't seek temporary happiness but everlasting joy.

"God Disciplines" from 2 Samuel 12

In the sheep flock if one sheep would go astray the shepherd would run after that sheep and breaks a leg (for discipline), then put a wood with bandage (at the leg) then the shepherd would carry the sheep for a week until the broken leg will be healed, this in return will build relationship with the sheep will eventually will not go astray anymore, but if the shepherd doesn't love the sheep he would just let it be in the wilderness to be eaten by wild animals.

True Christian never get away from sin, God will disciplines us.

If we have ears to hear and eyes to see the message of God.

Don't point fingers to other people's sins, God knows your sin and every little thoughts.

Hebrews 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

God knows... David truly changed... if we truly changed and repent...
in Psalm 32:
A Psalm of David, Maschil.

1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.

4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.

5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.

7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.

10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.

11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

"Persevere" from Hebrews 10:19-36

Be patient to persevere, wait for the right time patiently endure and not to doubt.

Often times people only cry to the Lord when they are in trouble. But we should pray for Him not only in times of trouble. Fellowship everyday.

When we text or call to our girl friend or boy friend was it a chore to do?
No it wasn't we do it for happiness. That is how we should have relationship with God.

Enoch walk with God for 300 years but we only have 60-80 years lifespan, now isn't it more easy.

Come to Jesus and fellowship with Him. Endure our personal walk with God with sincere heart. Be honest. Draw with sincere heart in full assurance of faith.

Sometimes most people cry out first to other people for solutions in their problems then if nobody can help them they cry out to God as the last resort. God is a patience and loving God all we have to do is come back to Him. Never let God be the last resort. Continue on to get to the destination and hold on to the Lord.
Don't go back to the world nor to the traditions and religious rituals. Be faithful to God.

Hebrews 3:14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: "Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."

Consider other people give encouragement with them to be a channel of blessings to others. When you allow yourself to be a blessing with someone else you will be more blessed. God gave each one at least one spiritual gift to use for benefit to someone else, so get your eyes out of yourself and outside your selfish goal.

Matthew 8:22 But Jesus said to him, "Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead."

Continue to fellowship and Love, don't be a CEO Christians (Christmas Easter Only) stay on fire and let Jesus be the priority and you will find yourself in good hands, let our will be pleasing to God.

When you don't stay with the Lord all that you have would just go away. The attractiveness of this world will go away everything are temporary and will turn out to be outdated and perished. The only things lasting is fellowship with God and not run after the money.

Trust and obey with God there's no other way.

The evidence of Christians is obedience with God. If we truly believe in God and receive Him then we be obedient with God not practicing sin. If we do sin come to Jesus and He is our lawyer and protector to redeem us. In judgement day sin have price to pay.

In the Bible Jesus preached more about hell than heaven because Jesus doesn't want us to go to hell.

Do not harden your heart, when the Holy Spirit talks to you and telling you to repent.

Don't love too much your life, if you love your life you will loose it. Our life and purpose is found in Jesus. That's how we can persevere, suffering are temporary. Heaven is forever. What good is it when you gain the whole world and looses your soul? Soul last forever if we only know how to save it.

Set our mind in heaven then we can be more fruitful. We are going to be rewarded base on our faith with God. Pressed on and persevere; God is preparing us for the next life. (in heaven)

"Watch Out" from 2 Samuel 11

What is the most dangerous part of the battle?
Is it before the battle or after the battle?
The most dangerous part is having self confidence and that is after the battle when a person rest and relax.
1 Corinthians 10:12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.

Be careful to be confident. Never let our guard down against sin. Never think nothing will happen bad that will let our guard down.

Always pray and ask God for guard and guidance. Be free from sexual immorality and ran away from it.
Time + opportunity = trouble
Hold the fire close to you and you get burn. Women should dress modesty not seductively.
God will always provide a way out of temptation. If we think its not possible for us to fall into sin then that's the most dangerous. Don't judge evil is in our capacity if we don't have strong faith with God.
Proverbs 31:30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

True Godly beauty is more lasting.
There are consequence to sin = we can't get away from sin.
We know the area in our life where we struggle we can't hide from our sins.
God sees everything in our heart.
Sin will make people forget every single good deeds we made.
Sin will never stop till it destroys your life.
Be very careful and stay strong relationship with the Lord.
God will always try protect and save us. Don't get close to sin we have to discipline ourselves.
Sin displeases God it's telling Him we don't love Him.
Don't think sin is just small and will not affect you sooner it will reign your life little by little. Don't allow it to reign on the first place stop it right away.

"Are you Forgiven" from Hebrews 10:1-18

To forgive.
Forgiven is all debts are gone. God take away all the debts in us, Jesus paid the debts when He died on the cross.
Don't live in traditions we have Jesus Christ, we are forgiven, we go to Him for forgiveness.

Psalms 32:1-2 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven. Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

We should be happy and thankful.
We should not bring any animal sacrifice but come to Jesus. An animal can't be measured to man to cover all the sins.
Some people worship material things to make themselves happy, that is what the world is doing.

Until our sin in our heart are remove we can't worship Jesus. Someone who is not born again can't experience true spiritual joy.
When we receive forgiveness it removes our guilt. Not like the sacrifice of animal it's a temporary covering until Jesus came to died on the cross. Jesus remember our sin no more.
Forgiveness help us spiritually, mentally and physically. It produces reactions in our body to forgive. The importance of forgiveness... In our heart is to take away sins.

Sin is missing the mark. As in archery whenever a person miss the mark or target people would shout "sinner".

And so when we think of sin it is missing a mark. To miss is being imperfect.
Transgression is willful disobedience.

Iniquity is the combination of transgression and sin.
To complain is a sin to God.

To worry is not trusting God.
We need to stop and learn about forgiveness.
Be holy is a process of spiritual maturity as we go through day by day to be wash by the word of God and allow the Holy Spirit to change our reactions, thinking, words spoken and actions.

So are you forgiven? Are we forgiven?

Yes of course.

"Love All" from 2 Samuel 10

If you do anything kind do you expect anything in return?
Even if someone doesn't say "thank you" or do the same thing would you still give unconditional love?

Matt 5:43-48
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

We should care and look out to our brother and sisters love covers multitude of sins. If you see someone made mistakes don't gossip them instead pray for them and restore them to God.

It is a struggle to love who are against you, God is our help in time of our need. If we call to take away the bitterness in our heart; forgiveness, we can't hold

Depend on the Lord and pray.

It's not easy to love because we get hurt. There will always be people that God will bring to our life to try us to give unconditional love. There are people in our life to teach us about learning love if we don't deal with it and again there will be another people whom God will bring to teach us same situation until we learn how to deal with it.

Live at peace with all men. Don't take revenge as our place is to Love.

Remember Jesus gave us unconditional love. If we don't give it we may not receive it either.

"Blood Only" from Hebrews 9:11

What's your reaction when you see blood?

Behind the blood is life. What's so special about blood?

Lev 17:11 For the life of flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.
14: for it is the life of all flesh. Its blood sustains its life. Therefor I said to the children of Israel, "you shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Whoever eats shall be but off."

The life of every creature is in the blood that's why they need to bring a perfect sacrifice for us. . For redemption. Sin blemish. . But Jesus had no sin He was perfect to sacrifice for us; the wages of sin is death and Jesus sacrifice for us, He was the only one perfect.

Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.

Without blood of Jesus we wouldn't be forgiven. Jesus fulfilled the commandments He give it for us, sacrifice for us to be redeem.

1 Peter 1:18-19 Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.

Lamb without blemish or defect = if we put our faith to Jesus; no longer we continue our wicked ways and have faith in Jesus.

John 6:53-54 then Jesus said to them "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you."
"Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

Spiritualy if we apply the blood of Jesus we are forgiven we have to believe by faith. So important we don't have the head knowledge of the blood but also by heart. We can't approach heavenly God unless we have a sin.
If we did something wrong our conscience will say to us "we did something wrong" Jesus was the lamb of God who take away the sin of the world.

Believe by faith and trust and do not doubt, don't go back to the world the deceitful desire of sin. Always run back to Jesus; Sin is a trap to let you go further away from God. Run back to the one that will give you salvation = Jesus.

Living your life to service to Him live your life for the Lord that pleases Him and not yourself. Live a life that is Christ centered and not self centered.

Titus 2:14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

We must be eager to do what is good live for Jesus and useful for Him dedicate our life for Him.

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 9:15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

Jesus is the only mediator and bridge to God. When Jesus died on the cross He said "it is finish" He pays the price we couldn't pay.

Will = is a document to what is going to happen after the person dies. Jesus give us this Will and died for us the one that gives out the will so that it will be enforced.

Exodus 29:20 Then you shall kill the ram, and take some of its blood and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aaron and on the tip of the ear of his sons, on the thumb of their right hand and on the big toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood all around the altar.

Be careful what we allow to enter in our ears and mind; we apply the word of Jesus and have faith in Him; be careful what we think about sin - deserve punishment.

And Jesus is the only sacrifice to cover our sin.

Matthew 26:28 "for this is My blood of the covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

The power of blood of Jesus Christ.

Pastor's Message
Luke 12:15 then He said to them "watch out! be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.
=We live in a material world and we need material things to live such as food and clothing. The danger is to want more material things than we need. When we are not satisfied with God's blessings, then we become greedy.

"Be Kind" from 2 Samuel 9

Have you tried random acts of giving? Be nice to someone. God shown us loving kindness we don't deserve.

1 Corinthians 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
(Talks about love kindness and good deeds. Being kind begins with the thought of forgiveness.)

If we are blessed think of how we can bless others. Think about all the things you have, everything belongs to God. If you look back, think of all the kindness God has done to you.

[crossing the street story]
David was looking for Saul's people where he can show kindness.
Matthew 10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

(There's reward from showing kindness to other people. 1 John 3:18 there must be actions that follows.)

When you know you should do something kind and you don't do it, it's a sin.

Comforting to those who are sick, encouraging someone who is depress, giving a helping hand to someone who is a stranger.

People returning money but being scold as a fool is a thing of the world don't be deceived.
1 Peter 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

(Be compasionate & humble.)

When you think they don't deserve your kindness then you don't deserve God's kindness either. Kindness is something that can't be force its not something you ask in return. We do our glorified act without expecting anything because God has already given the kindness to you.

Don't let anyone knows you're giving.
Don't give any praise report.

If we think of heaven and God's loving kindness for eternity for all opportunity we must show kindness, show hospitality to everybody.

"Be a True Worshiper" from Hebrews 9:1-11

Worship the creator not the creation. We can not say we worship God if we have an idol.
The meaning of:
Tabernacle = a tent with curtain and blazing altar inside where they offer sacrifices, it also signifies the relationship with God.

Lev 18:30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.
means its important we are not deceive on how the world worship.
For example the building of the church is not important it's the heart of the worshiper.

We came in to worship to Jesus and depend our life to him. He should be the first we think in the morning and the last thought at night. A man plans his ways to the Lord our God.

John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

Jesus pray for you and me. In the Bible a high priest would go in the tabernacle once a year to offer sacrifices he would have 2 goats; one for sacrifice in the altar and the other as escape goat. A goat will be killed and its blood will be sprinkled at the altar and let the other one escape at the wilderness until nowhere to be seen and the priest will announce "your're forgiven" but jesus died on the cross as sacrifice and rose up from the dead and said "you're forgiven".

We have to humble ourselves before God, we don't need to wait once a year to worship and let our sins be forgiven.

Praying everyday to build relationship to God from Jesus as he is the way we fellowship with him and worship with God follows next. Use your life as a tool for God's glory. In hands of God our life becomes the tool.

Who ever finds his life will loose it. But who ever gives his life will find it.

When you come to God He will change your life and the way of thinking. Don't believe in the words of Satan that God can not forgive. Satan wants us to be far away from God thus he gives us the thoughts of "God was only created by man and not the other way around".

Think about it.

Pastor Message
Luke 9:24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.
=the key to the Christian life is not found in seeking your own pleasure and satisfaction. It is found in giving up your life and living for Jesus.
