Saving Private You

  1. Preached @ Trinity Church, Cedar Hill, TX
  2. Published on Sept 26th, 2012
  3. 911 came flashing
  4. Quotes – Bible
    • Psalm 91:1-4
      My Refuge and My FortressHe who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
      I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!”…
      Surely he will save you
      from the fowler’s snare
      and from the deadly pestilence.He will cover you with his feathers,
      and under his wings you will find refuge;
      his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
    • Ephesians 3:20
      Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us
    • Psalm 51:6
      Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
      you taught me wisdom in that secret place.
    • Matthew 5:6
      Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
    • Malachi 3:16
      The Book of Remembrance
      ‘So now we call the arrogant blessed; not only are the doers of wickedness built up but they also test God and escape.'”
      Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name.
      “They will be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.”…
    • 1st Corinthians 4:1-5
      This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.
      Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful.
      But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself.
      For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me.
      Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God.
    • Joel 2:15-17
      Between Sanctuary entrance and altar,

          let the priests, God’s servants, weep tears of repentance.
      Let them intercede: “Have mercy, God, on your people!
          Don’t abandon your heritage to contempt.
      Don’t let the pagans take over and rule them
          and sneer, ‘And so where is this God of theirs?’”
    • 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
      The Rescue
      All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too.
    • Hebrew 4
      When the Promises Are Mixed with Faith
      For as long, then, as that promise of resting in him pulls us on to God’s goal for us, we need to be careful that we’re not disqualified. We received the same promises as those people in the wilderness, but the promises didn’t do them a bit of good because they didn’t receive the promises with faith. If we believe, though, we’ll experience that state of resting. But not if we don’t have faith
    • Luke 4:23
      The Rejection at Nazareth
      Jesus said to them, “Surely you will quote this proverb to me: ‘Physician, heal yourself!’ And you will tell me, ‘Do here in your hometown what we have heard that you did in Capernaum.'”
    • Psalm 68:9
      You shed abroad a plentiful rain, O God; You confirmed Your inheritance when it was parched.

      Your creatures settled in it; You provided in Your goodness for the poor, O God.…
  5. Quotes
    • It is easy to be public and not protect your private Life
  6. Quotes – Donald Rumsfeld – Adrift in Life
    • Rumsfeld learned this lesson while in naval flight training.  “If you are lost,” Rumsfeld writes, “climb, conserve and confess.”  This is the lesson as Rumsfeld describes it.“Climb meant that the pilot should gain altitude so that he could see a greater distance, get his bearings, and if necessary, glide without power to a safe landing.”  Conserve meant reducing airspeed and leaning out the fuel and have more time to figure out where he is.  And confess meant getting on the radio promptly and announcing to all who might be listening , ‘I’m lost and I need help.’” ( Link )
  7. Quotes – Smith Wigglesworth
    • If you do not have a secret place, your Life will be full of secrets
  8. Quotes – Malcolm Forbes
    • When you cease to dream, you cease to live
  9. Remarks
    • Looking In
      • In Revelation 3, Laodicea Church, Jesus is standing outside the door, knocking, Looking In
      • How did Jesus get outside the door?
        • May be we love our gifts more than we love him
    • Knowing Him
      • Knowing him is my ability to eat and to go after him
      • What good is it to feed everybody else, if I am thirsting myself
    • Whoever carries the Flag in battle, get shot first
    • My destiny is determined by my desire to know him
    • How many my brothers have been killed in Battle. They should have been great

    • Pray for your elders
      • The priest lay in the doorpost making intercession ( Joel 2:17 )

    • God does not hide, the frailty of his people
    • If you can not separate into his Presence, the hard time will separate you from him
    • At a conference approached by someone

Sermons & Discussions – 2016/Mid Feb

 

Prelude

Last weekend I watched a touching and affirming video.

The subject area is a bit outside my normal trajectory and it came from walking in on my cousin, Azziz, as he meditated.

I also watched a sermon forwarded to me by Paul whom I met on my daily commute.  He pointed me to Paris Reidhead’s redirecting indictment, “Ten Shekels and a Shirt“.

Discussion

Ali Banat

  • Upon going to the cemetery for brother’s burial, came back with the thoughts that after you are gone, there is nothing left behind, just your deeds
  • That is the only thing that will keep you in your grave and be with you till your final destination
  • He who loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet him.  And, he who hates to meet Allah, Allah hates to meet him

 

Paris Reidhead

Ten Shekels and a Shirt

  1. Convince bad man that he needs God
  2. The only one reason for repentance is that God deserves worship, adulation, admiration of his heart
  3. If the one repents just to get out of Hell, then one is just a Levi trying to serve God because he does us good
  4. It is not what you are going to get out of God, it is what he is going to get out of you
  5. That’s what the Chinese Christian said, you know, when he got back to China
    What impressed you most about America?” He said, “The great things Americans can accomplish without God.”
  6. This became the call of Moravian missions. And this is our only reason for being…that the Lamb that was slain may receive the reward of His suffering!

 

John Piper

Spiritual Gifts

  1. Given to strengthen other people
  2. Given to be given, they will rot if hoarded
  3. Sent Timothy to strengthen
    • 1st thessalonians ( We sent Timothy, who is our brother and co-worker in God’s service in spreading the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage you in your faith – 1 Thessalonians 3:2 )
  4. Strengthen people so that they are less easily toppled.  And, thus increase their in faith in God
  5. Both are gifts
    • For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you ( Romans 12:3 )
      • Both the gift
      • And, the faith to perform it
  6. The gifted are always at the mercy of Pride
  7.  Profund & Amazing Truth
    • Theology is for sake of Ethics
    • Truth is for sake of Life
  8. Serving Others
    • Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised  (1 st Peter 4:10-11 )
    • Grace can be dispersed through words or deeds
    • Through Words
      • Appealing to God for the words to speak
      • Not seeking attention to Self, but to the Spirit who is trustworthy
    • It is all to God’s Glory

 

Perry Stone

Perry Stone & Bryn Waddell, City Revival Church

  1. Compassion for people is the Key
    • Perry Stone’s father, Fred Stone, at 75 years old, still held a long line of people waiting for prayer
  2. Nehemiah
    • Asking how the people of God are doing
  3. Presence
    • When people get in the presence of God, they change

    • They thy hunger and thirst for God shall be filled ( Matthew 5:6 )

Best lessons from a lifetime of Pastoring

  1. Relationship to Congregation
    • 1st Timothy
    • Faith without a mask and a Good conscience
    • The end that is in view will always determine the beginning
      If there is a goal in view, the beginning will be determined by that

      • Love more important than gift
      • The only people that will gather around you for truth are those poorly taught in scripture or cranks, and they will gather around the notion that Truth is more important than Love
      • Jesus Loves his disciples
        • To his embryonic church he said “I have many things still to teach you, but you can not bear them
        • Love understands the slowness and dimness of people
      • Paul to Timothy
        • Rebuke and Encourage–with great patience and careful instruction ( 2 Timothy 4:2 )
  2. Relationship to Ministry ( Listening to the Word )
    • Strongest messages that go from us are the strongest that come to us
    • When we are preaching there is no one under the ministry of the Word more than us
    • Not that we masters of Scripture, but we are mastered by it
    • You are but the mailman here, If I am going to deal with anyone, I will have to deal with you
    • Under whose ministry do you sit?  I sit under exactly the same ministry of the Word as you do
  3. Relationship to God ( Live our Life in the Unity of Triunit Lord )

J.D Greear

When the Strong Become Weak – Judges 14

Sampson was his own worst enemy

  1. Impulsive
  2. Compromise
    • What if the harm is not the act itself, but in driving God away
    • Not take the presence of God for granted
  3. Unteachable
    • No one can speak into his life
    • An Isolated man will become to serve himself
    • Things that can grow in a secret garden always grow mutant ( David Powlison )
    • Those places that no man can speak into is the place that enemy is destroying us
  4. Pride
    • Use God’s blessing for his own purpose
    • Lack of Prayer and seeking God’s favor
    • Whose glory have we leveraged our gifts for
