Default Prayer for sermon..

Hi All,

God has given me a great opportunity today. While my pastor is in the states for a wedding (his son), he has asked me to take several of the services. I just need prayer that I will be able to prepare some edifying messages from the word of God. I have four messages to preach, one sunday morning, two sunday nights and a wednesday. I have no idea what to do for any of them, so please pray that God would speak to me and give me a word.

Thanks
Luke

Brother that's wonderful stuff!

This is exactly what God was preparing you for all these months of hardship and I trust that the opportunity of preaching the Lords word has given you the humbling experience before the Lord I think you needed to return joy to your life.
I will pray for you Brother as I know and trust that it has been the prayers of many on this forum that brought you to this point.

Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

Well, I pray that God would restore the joy.. I've become quite bitter about a lot of things (not church related), especially repentance.

I tend to disregard anyone that mentions it anymore, because of the total misuse of the word.. but I do know that I must repent continually of who and what I am.

Brother Luke I know exactly were you are coming from its the surge of "Lordship salvationists" that make genuine believers doubt whether they have ever "really" been saved and its a lie of the devil. It makes me feel physically sick.
But by the Grace of God we are sealed by his Spirit until the day of redemption, nothing we can do about it, nothing they can do about it, its all resting in Gods hands and I am eternally grateful for that for if it were resting in my hands id have dropped it a thousand times over!

God Bless Bro, praying for ya

John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Take it to'em like a highlander bro. Pray for God to give you a message and to not allow the flesh to rise up. I miss preaching.

Wonderful news brother! What a blessing that has been given to you! I am certain that the LORD, through the Holy Spirit, will give you the confidence and the words to speak. His Word will come through you mightily - for the edification of the church.

Please tell me, Luke, what ideas have you come up with, for these messages to preach? I'd like to help, IF I can.

Sermon Outline for Tonight

3 Appearings

Explain Chart - Mountain Peaks

Old Testament Prophets
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
(1 Peter 1:9-12)

OT Prophets did not understand the things that were revealed to them. They saw prophecies clearly, but missed some important parts, namely, the Church. Church was not revealed to the OT prophets. Valley of the Church

Similarly, we can see the Millennial Kingdom through scripture, but we cannot see it entirely. It is in a valley over the next major events on God’s prophetic calendar.

If we were to run through the Old Testament prophecies regarding Christ and the Anti-Christ, we would come up with the following list of events to take place.

Birth of Messiah, Death of Messiah, Resurrection, Pentecost, Anti-Christ Tribulation, Olivet Revelation, Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, New Heavens and New Earth & New Jerusalem.

There is no church in what the OT Prophets saw.

Text for Message-

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
(Hebrews 9:24-28)


HATH HE APPEARED – PROPHET
Christ’s First Coming was lowly, although the prophets thought it would be great and high and mighty and with much pomp and grandeur. “For I am meek and lowly in heart”.

First Coming

BIRTH: Numbers 24:17, Isaiah 7:14, Micah 5:2, Isaiah 9:6-7
His birth was clearly prophesied.
Mat 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
The wise men had likely been studying the book of Daniel or Numbers 24:17 (mention of Star of Jacob) left behind by the Israelites during their 70 years of captivity. Daniel 9 proclaims a king coming but Isaiah and Micah are clearer about the births.

CALVARY: Isaiah 53, Psalm 22, Genesis 22:8
His death was clearly prophesied. There are many more verses in regards to Jesus death.

PENTECOST: Joel 2:28-29
The events that occurred at Pentecost were clearly foretold in Joel. Joel is a strange verse, because the events that occurred in Pentecost were cut short because of the Jews rejection of Jesus. These signs and wonders will reappear during the tribulation.

Christ’s first appearance was as Prophet. His first words during his ministry were “Repent ye for the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is at hand”. That’s a literal kingdom on earth. This was postponed after His rejection by Israel and we enter a dispensation that was not prophecied, although, God in His Sovereignty knew about it.

Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
Christ offered himself ONLY once. If this was going to be a normal sacrifice, the scriptures say he would have to do it often, from the foundation of the world – because from the foundation of the world, there have been sinners. BUT NOW he hath appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. ONCE. He hath APPEARED. It’s a past event.

NOW TO APPEAR - PRIEST
Hebrews 7:25
Ephesians 2:6
1 Timothy 2:5

Christ NOW appears before God as intercessor for all who believe on His name. He is the Saviour, the Messiah, but he is those things in all ages. But NOW, he appears continually before God, offering up prayers and interceding on behalf of sinners because of His blood that was shed.

Christ now appears as intercessor, but not as a sacrifice. The sacrifice was completed on the cross. He now intercedes.

Mass is wrong – continual sacrifice.

Furthermore, we also appear before God in Him. We are seated IN CHRIST in heavenly places.

SHALL APPEAR - KING
2 Parts

1st part :HARVEST - RAPTURE 1 Thess 4:16-18, 1 Cor 15:51-52, Titus 2:13, 1 Thess 5:9 (OT Prophets did NOT see this)

ANTI-CHRIST – Daniel 7:19-27, Daniel 8:23-25, Daniel 9:26-27, 2 Thess 2:4,

2nd Part: GLEANINGS - RETURN OF CHRIST - ZECH 14:4, Matthew 24:29, Acts 1:9-12, Daniel 7:13-14



KINGDOM ESTABLISHED – Daniel 12 End of Tribulation
KINGDOM
Isaiah 2:1-4
Micah 4:1-2
Isaiah 11:6, 65:25
Isaiah 65:20
SATAN BOUND – PEACE ON EARTH
EARTH DESTROYED, HEAVENS DESTROYED,
New Jerusalem, New Heavens, New Earth
