One moment in Time — Here to Eternity
By George Duke
Twas not day nor was it light
When she arose from the night
Would not be much more than an hour
That she would be at work in the tower
She got on her knees to pray as she knelt on the floor
Not just a sentence but a whole lot more
She prayed for her kids, her nation and kin
Not knowing that day of those horrible men
Who despised the life of others and their own
Thinking in their minds to their god they’d be known
So after her coffee and a roll
She left the house for the stroll
Up the lane and down the street
Smiling to all that she did meet
Twas not long fore she entered the door
Took the Elevator to the 73rd floor
Greeting co-workers as she took her seat
Picked up some fallen papers at her feet
Looking out the window suddenly she cried alas
As the plane came crashing through the glass
Now Satan their god was ever so pleased and laughed and shouted in glee
For that morning his followers had bowed to him on their knee
Twas Tuesday Sept 11th of that horrible day
When children in school were not allowed to pray
The pledge of allegiance was all they could speak
Before sitting at their desks with a squeak
But school was not out on that solemn day
When rules were broken as they sobbed and did pray
In school that day they prayed for those that did die
They cried to the God that was way up in the sky
Jesus our God looked down from above
Heard the cry of the people that he did love
He reached down his hands to the WTC
And took his children of that you can see
Many a person will never be found
Among the rubble that fell to the ground
Some there were not known and of little fame
But our Jesus knew them all by their Name
His promise is still true
For one day out of the blue
Jesus will come and above we will go
And we will be able to tell the world I told you so
The prodigal son Poem by George Duke
In the beginning he was doing just fine
Then he left home & his Father behind
For days he enjoyed riotous living
Serving the devil with all of his being
One day he had plenty of time and wealth
The next day he was starving to death
It was at this time he begin to think
In my Fathers house there is plenty of food and drink
So he returned to his home ready to plead
All because he had such a dire need
He found his Father was quick to forgive
But the brother complained and condemned
We all at some time are like the prodigal son
Enjoying Worldly pleasure and having fun
So take it from me and you will plainly see
It’s in his house you need to be
So the father offered mercy and grace
And allowed him back in his place
But the brother did not want him back
He was not concerned with his lack
Today you may feel that very same need
To return to the heavenly Father and plead
For his forgiveness you will surely find
HOW TO FIND THE WILL OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE
TEXT: Rom. 12: 1-2
INTRODUCTION: How can a Christian know God’s will in his life? Every Christian should be keenly interested in knowing God’s will for his life Whether one is seeking guidance as to a momentary problem or as to a life career, there are five steps to be followed. These may be summarized as follows: YIELD, CONFESS, PRAY, STUDY, WAIT.
- YIELD. To yield is to present oneself to the Lord. It means to lay aside personal hopes, ambitions and desires. It means to want His way supremely. Paul yielded when he asked, “What wilt thou have me to do?”
- CONFESS. If we want to be in the center of His will, we must confess and forsake any secret sins which we cherish. Remember the words of the Psalmist, “If I regarc iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me (Psalm 66: 18).
- PRAY. This simply means that we must come before the Lord regularly, asking Him to do as He has said.
- STUDY. Spend much time in the Word of God. Read it while you are on your knees, asking God to speak to you through it.
- WAlT. If God does not answer immediately, wait (Psalm 62: 6). If
you have prayed for direction and no answer comes, then God’s guid
ance is for you to stay where you are.
- GUIDANCE THROUGH THE BIBLE. God often uses verses of Scripture to guide us to take a certain definite course of action. A verse that you had never noticed before may take on new meaning because it tells you what to do at the vcry time when you were praying for direction (Psalm 119: 105 )
- GUIDANCE THROUGH CHRISTIANS. It is sometimes helpful to seek the advice of mature, spiritual Christians. Their experience and counsel can often save a younger person from serious pitfalls. Hebrews 13:7, 17).
III. GUIDANCE THROUGH CIRCUMSTANCES. Since God controls the entire universe, He can ind often does plan the circumstances of our lives to reveal His will.
- GUIDANCE THROUGH ‘”.THE HOLY SPIRIT.
The Spirit of God can influence our convictions, our desires or our inclinations in such a way as to make God’s will clear. In such cases, the guidance is so obvious that to refuse it would be the same as disobedience (Acts 11: 12; 16:6, 7).
HOW TO PRAY IN A TIME OF CRISIS
HOW TO PRAY IN A TIME OF CRISIS
TEXT: Daniel 2: 14-23 and 46-49
INTRODUCTION: The opening verses of the second chapter of Daniel certainly reveal to us the fact that Daniel faced a great crisis at this time. Perhaps you are facing a crisis now. What should you do about it? The answer is: Do what Daniel did – pray. Daniel 2: 14-23, and see how to pray in a time of crisis.
- SET ASIDE A TIME FOR PRAYER.
Why did Daniel ask the king for “time”? Because he wanted time to
pray. Immediately he was faced with the problem he set aside time for
prayer. Now, if you are facing a time of crisis the first thing you should do is to set aside a definite time in order to seek the face of God and place the matter that is perplexing you into His hands for solution.
- GO TO THE PLACE OF PRAYER.
Verse 17 tells us that “Daniel went to his house.” Why did he do this?
Daniel 6: 10 tells us. In his house he had a place of prayer, a special
room where the windows were open towards Jerusalem. Do you have a place of prayer?
III. SEEK FELLOWSHIP IN PRAYER.
Daniel could have prayed alone about his great need, as he did in Daniel 6: 10. But Daniel sought the prayer fellowship of his three companions, as verse 17 tells us.
- BE DEFINITE IN PRAYER.
Verse 18 tells us that these four young men prayed “concerning this
secret.” If you go through your Bible you underline all the occasions of prayer that are recorded there you wil! notice over and over again that the praying was definite.
- WATCH YOUR MOTIVE IN PRAYER.
In Verse 18 we are told that Daniel and his friends prayed “that Daniel
and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.” Prayer with the wrong motive cannot prevail. James 4:3.
- EXERCISE FAITH IN PRAYER.
That is to say, when you pray, pray in faith. The incident before us
clearly shows that Daniel had implicit trust in God that He could hear
and answer prayer. One reason why our prayers do not prevail is because of our unbelief. James 1 :5-7.
VII. RECEIVE THE ANSWER TO PRAYER.
Look at verses 19-23 and notice the kind of answer that God gave.
“TRY THE SPIRIT”
“TRY THE SPIRIT”
TEXT: I John 4: 1
INTRODUCTION: The scriptures speak of the “spirit of man” and the
“spirit of beast,” there are also many other KINDS of spirits spoken of
in thte Bible. Notice:
- THE “GOOD.”
- Nathanael had a “clean” spirit, Jo. 1:47
- A “broken” spirit is usually good, Ps. 5 I : 17
- A “faithful” spirit is good, Provo 11: 13
- Good spirits cannot always be detected by “outward” appearance,
I Sam. 16: 7
- We need the GIFT – “discerning of spirits,” I Cor. 12: 10; Provo
- THE “EVIL.”
- Christ speaks of:
- “Unclean Spirits,” Matt. 10:1; 12:43
- “Devil-spirits,” 8: 16; 12:28
- “Wicked spirits,” 12:45
- “Dumb Spirits,” Mark 9: 17
- Tattlers need this kind.
- “Foul spirits,” 9 :25
- “Evil spirits,” Lu, 7:21; 8:2
- “Spirit of infirmity,” 13: 1 I
III. OTHER KINDS. 1. Paul refers to the spirit of:
- “Devination” – fortune telling, Acts 16: 16
- “Bondage,” Rom. 8: 15
- “Slumber,” 11:8
- “The world,” I Cor. 2: 12
- “Disobedience,” Eph. 2:2
- “Seducing,” I Tim. 4: I
- “Fear,” 2 Tim. 1: 7
- TESTING THE SPIRIT.
- There are three ways we may “test” the spirit; they may be called:
- The “spirit test,” I Cor. 12:3; I John 4: 1
- The “doctrinal” test,” I John 4:3
- The “fruit-bearing” test, Matt. 7: 15-20
CONCLUSION: There are many, many spirits, but only One Holy Spirit, and GOD wants US to be “Filled” with the Holy Spirit, Eph. 5: 18.
IF THE FOUNDATION BE DESTROYED
IF THE FOUNDATION BE DESTROYED
Text: Psalms 11:3
- THE FOUNDATION OF GOVERNMENT
- Our nation was founded on religious principles,
- More and more, God is being left out of national affairs; while
Atheism comes to the front, but the Bible gives the answer
Psalm 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the
nations that forget God.”
- THE FOUNDATIONS OF MORALITY ARE BEING
- Moral standards have reached a new low.
Example: Dope, troubles, sex promiscuity, etc.
- Sex teachings in the schools – a disgrace to the nation.
III. THE FOUNDATIONS OF CITIZENSHIP
This is our relation to our nation and our fellowman.
Dishonesty runs rampant – tax -. cheating, etc.
- THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE HOME
- The situation: Mother working a job, or gone to the social club.
- Dad gone to the tavern
3.. The children gone to hell.
- The old-fashioned home, Where God is honored, hardly exists.
- THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE CHURCH
L Consider the church’s place in God’s plan, Eph. 3:10, 21.
- God’s program is a church program. “To him be glory in the
- The church is autonomous – self-governing – independent.
- The Devil is trying to rob the Churches of their God-given
- There is a universal effort to compromise the churches with
false churches and religious movements. Ecumenism.
- THE FOUNDATIONS OF CHRISTIANITY ARE BEING DESTROYED
- Christianity is really three things:
- An experience – in salvation.
- An expression – in Christian living.
- An expectation – of Christ’s return.
- There is a loose concept of Christian Iiving. We are ceasing
to be a separated people. Anything goes.
Separation is commanded, See II Cor. 6:17, .Col. 3:1, 2, etc.
- Bible study and prayer are too much neglected.
AN INCONSIDERATE PEOPLE
TEXT: Isa. 1 :3. “The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.”
INTRODUCTION: This is God’s charge against His people. In their backslidden condition they did not have as much judgment as the ox or the ass. These knew where to look for their food, but backslidden Christians turn to the world and worldly things to try to satisfy their souls. There are many things we do not consider:
- WE DO NOT CONSIDER THE GREATNESS OF OUR GOD.
“For the Lord is a great God, and King above all the gods.” Psalm 95: 3 “Thy way, 0 God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?” P:salm 77: 13
- WE DO NOT CONSIDER THE GOODNESS OF GOD.
- Israel had forgotten all God’s wonderful works toward them.
- The deliverance from Egypt
- The crossing of the Red Sea
- His provisions for them in the Wilderness.
- God’s people of today are just as prone to forget as the Israelites.
“Not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance” Rom. 2:4.
III. WE DO NOT CONSIDER THE PRICE PAID FOR OUR REDEMPTION.
- Christ paid the price in His suffering and death. Luke 24:46
- The ransom must be as great or greater than the object sold.
- Christ’s blood is the ransom
- This is the greatest price ever paid.
- WE DO NOT CONSIDER OUR OWN SINFULNESS.
- God’s description of His rebellious children. Isa, 1: 3-6
- The results of their sins. Isa, 1: 7-9
- By rebelling against God, Christians bring chastisement upon themselves. Jer. 2: 19
- WE DO NOT CONSIDER THE AWFUL STATE OF LOST SOULS
- Christian workers need a new vision of hell and its horrors.
- Christians should consider that the unbeliever is lost already. John 3: 18
“WINDOWS OPEN TOWARDS JERUSALEM”
“WINDOWS OPEN TOWARDS JERUSALEM”
TEXT: Daniel 6: 1-11
INTRODUCTION: Every man whom God has greatly used has been a man of prayer. The value of our service before men is determined by the measure of our fellowship and communion with God in the secret place of prayer.
- DANIEL “WENT INTO HIS HOUSE” TO PRAY.
There were no temples in Babylon, except heathen temples, but Daniel had a “prophet’s chamber,” a sacred place within his own home where he frequently withdrew in order to have fellowship in prayer with God. This is the essential in the life of every Christian.
- DANIEL KEPT HIS WINDOWS OPEN “TOWARD JERUSALEM.”
These open windows were symbolic of the whole attitude of his soul. His heart and soul were opened God-ward. These open windows tell us that Daniel was a man who believed God, who trusted Him to keep His word, and who waited expectantly for the fulfillment of His word.
III. DANIEL “KNEELED UPON HIS KNEES” TO PRAY.
When we pray the bodily posture is not the important thing. We can pray walking or standing, while We are working or while we are resting in bed, but the attitude of our hearts when we pray should be that of kneeling, for this indicates humility and reverence and submission.
- DANIEL PRAYED “THREE TIMES A DAY.”
No man had a more valid excuse for not giving much time to prayer, and yet Daniel prayed regularly three times “day. For Daniel prayer was not supplemental, something added on after everything else had been seen to, it was fundamental, a priority ill his life.
- DANIEL ACTUALLY “PRAYED”
This man Daniel was burdened. Are we burdened about the condition of things in our own land? – the pagan atmosphere, the receding tide of spiritual blessing, the lowering of moral standards.
- DANIEL’S PRAYERS WERE MINGLED WITH PRAISES – “HE GAVE THANKS.”
What had he to be thankful about? Everybody was against him and he was in a most difficult situation. Yes, but he gave thanks and thus obeyed the injunction written by the Apostle Paul many years later – Philippians 4: 6· 7.
HOW TO GROW
HOW TO GROW
TEXT: II Peter 3: 18
INTRODUCTION: The Word of God has given us seven beautiful similes of the growth of the Christian character, and cur Lord says that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed, or graced like the lily of the field.
- GROW LIKE THE LILY FOR PURITY.
“As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters” (S. of Sol. 2:2). “Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God (II Co. 7: I ).
God promised Israel that they should “grow as the lily” when they return to Him (Hos. 14:5).
- GROW LIKE CORN FOR BOUNTIFULNESS
The corn must fall into thte ground and die (John 12:24). Die to all of the flesh and be quickened by the spirit. This is the way for the “much fruit.” It is the development of the new life, even as John the Baptist said, “He must increase, but I (J ohn ) must decrease” (John 3: 30).
III. GROW LIKE IVY FOR TENACITY.
As the ivy clings by the power of life within, so we are able to cling to the tree. Our Lord loves to have us cling to Him. Ruth clave to him (Ruth 1: 14). Barnabas exhorted the saints to cleave unto the Lord “with purpose of heart” (Acts I 1 : 23) .
- GROW LIKE THE VINE FOR FRUITFULNESS
We read, “Take us the faxes. the little foxes. that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes” (S. of Sol. 2: 15). These are the little inconsistencies of our life that the enemy uses to ruin our testimony. We cannot bring forth fruit of ourselves. but the Word says. “Take us the little
foxes,” so we need to watch out for the fox.
- GROW LIKE THE OAK FOR STABILITY.
“By faith … rooted and grounded in love” (Eph. 3: 17); “That we
henceforth be no more children. tossed to and fro. and carried about with every wind of doctrine. by the sleight of men. and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive” (Eph. 4:14). It is said of Reuben, “unstable as water” (Gen. 49:4). How many are like Reuben today!
- GROW LIKE A PALM TREE FOR UPRIGHTNESS
We read, “Noah was a just man and upright in his generations, and Noah walked with God” (Gen. 6:9). How blessed also to be classed with Job as an upright man (Job I: 8)
