Keeping Our Eye On The Prize              by Jay Meyer              July 20, 2014

In a day where we can get saved and then do our own thing, it's easy to do get caught up in doing our own thing and forget about the prize.  At some point Christ will return and I hope I am ready when He arrives, doing His tasks instead of my busy work.  Will you be ready?

Today we look at the following verses:
Titus 2 verses 11 - 15:   11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,    
while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good
15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.

Revelation 22 verse 12  Our reward depends on what we do, where getting saved (or Salvation) doesn't require anything to do  (work).

Matthew 24 verses 27 - 33   27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 

29 “Immediately after the distress of those days  “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky,
    and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’

30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. 31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.

Titus 4: verse 15 - 18  14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Matthew 24 verse 34  Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Acts 1 verse 6  Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”  He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.

Hopefully we will discern the time we are in and Jesus will warn the generation at the time he is coming.  Paul warned that a great falling away would occur just prior to His (Chirst) coming.

Matthew 25 At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming. 

“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’  “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’

10 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. 11 “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’

12 “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ 13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.


Who’s voice are you listening to?

Who's voice are you listening to?                   by Jay Meyer              July 13, 2014

Are you listening to God?  Are you Listening to the accuser/enemy is saying?

Mark 4:23-25

23  If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.” 
24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more. 25 Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.

Genesis 2, 3  - When the enemy gets you to to question what God says to you there's a problem.  So, keep a Journal for the things God says to you, so when the question comes about from the enemy you can refer back to what God told you.
