                          “THE CULMINATION OF OUR HOPE”                                                                                                                                                                                      LET’S DIVE RIGHT INTO THE LESSON.. CULMINATION OF OUR HOPE. THE ATTAINMENT OR ARRIVAL AT THE HIGHEST PITCH OF GLORY, POWER , ETC. “FINALLY”…. LET’S MAKE IT CLEAR, THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE OBTAINED IS THAT WE MUST LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT AND THE SIN THAT DOETH SO EASILY BESET US. (HEBREWS 12:1).

TOO OFTEN TIMES INDIVIDUALS TRY TO OBTAIN A LEVEL OR ACCESS WITHOUT THE “PROCESS” . WHEN IN FACT GOD’S WORD DECLARES THAT IF ANY MAN WILL COME AFTER ME, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF…. (KEY WORD) AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY…. (KEY WORD) AND FOLLOW ME. (LUKE 9:23)  THERE IS A PLACE THAT WE ARE STRIVING TO GET TO… HOWEVER, THE PROCESS REQUIRES “COMPLETE SELF DENIAL” (1CORINTHIANS 15:50) NOW THIS I SAY, BRETHREN, THAT FLESH AND BLOOD CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD; NEITHER DOES CORRUPTION INHERIT INCORRUPTION.

WHILE WE ARE KINGDOM CITIZENS PASSING THROUGH EARTH IT’S OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MODEL CHRIST IN A MANNER THAT’S BEYOND REPROACH, UNDENIABLE, IMPECCABLE CHARACTER, TRANSPARENT, RELEVANT AND “DEAD TO SELF”…. (MATTHEW 16:25) FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT AND WHOSOEVER WILL LOSE HIS LIFE FOR MY (JESUS) SAKE SHALL FIND IT. LIKE NEVER BEFORE…. IT’S CRITICAL THAT YOU DIE!!!! DIE TO YOUR WAYS THAT’S CONTRARY TO THE WAYS OF GOD, DIE TO YOUR WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT’S NOT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD… (ISAIAH 55:8) MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, AND MY WAYS ARE NOT YOUR WAYS, DECLARES THE LORD... (EZEKIEL 18:29) AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL SAY: THE WAY OF THE LORD IS NOT RIGHT. ARE NOT MY WAYS RIGHT, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND ARE NOT RATHER YOUR WAYS PERVERSE? 

THERE IS A SPIRIT OF COMPROMISE THAT HAS CREPT IN THE CHURCH TO INFLUENCE THOSE WHO WOULD BE SAVED THAT EVERYTHING GOES AND GOD KNOWS YOUR HEART!! “YES HE DOES… AND THAT IT’S DECEITFULLY WICKED!!!! NO , NO , NO !!!! THIS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED THE CHURCH HAS TO MANDATE RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!!  THERE CANNOT BE A MIDDLE GROUND! JESUS SUFFERED THAT WE MAY LIVE AND ANYTHING OTHER THAN HIS WAY IS “LUDICROUS”. WE ARE DESTINED FOR A PLACE NOT MADE WITH HANDS OUR ASSIGNMENT IS TO BE ABOUT OUF FATHER’S BUSINESS WHILE HERE ON EARTH. LIVE JESUS… SPEAK JESUS… REVEAL JESUS TO A WORLD THAT HAS BEEN BLINDED WITH THE LIE THAT THIS IS. YOU JUST LIVE.. “THEN DIE…

YOU ARE THE LIFE SUPPORT TO THIS WORLD THAT NEEDS RESUSCITATION! AWAKE ZION, ARISE FROM YOUR SLEEP AND SHOW THE PEOPLE TO GOD! KNOW THAT ALL WILL NOT WELCOME OR RECEIVE YOU… IN SOME CASES YOU WILL BE DESPISED, REJECTED, MISTREATED, OVERLOOKED AND SIMPLY MISUNDERSTOOD. REMEMBER THIS, (LUKE 21:28) AND WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS, THEN LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH.    

“STAY STRONG AND BE FOREVER ENCOURAGED”
