"WHAT IS YOUR MIND FOCUSED ON?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-05-25

 

WHAT IS YOUR MIND FOCUSED ON?

 


I HAVE HEARD SO MANY TIMES THAT IT IS SO HARD TO LIVE A GOOD CHRISTIAN LIFE.  DO YOU THINK IT IS?  WELL, IT IS IF YOU ARE NOT GIVING ENOUGH ATTENTION TO JESUS.  I KNOW THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS OUT THERE THAT CAN TEMPT US.  OUR JOB IS TO MAKE SURE WE DO NOT DWELL ON THEM AND LET THEM TAKE OUR FOCUS AWAY FROM JESUS.  CHRISTIANS DO HAVE FUN!! I HAVE MORE FUN AT A GOOD BIBLE STUDY CLASS THEN I EVER DID AT A POKER GAME.  I HAVE MORE FUN IN CHURCH THAN I EVER DID SITTING IN A BAR DRINKING.  IT IS WHERE YOU CHOOSE TO BE.


LIFE IS WHAT WE MAKE IT.  LET PEOPLE KNOW YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN BUT BE SURE YOU ACT LIKE ONE.  I AM PROUD OF MY LOVE FOR JESUS.  I WAS IN SALES MOST OF MY LIFE AND AT FIRST WHEN I WOULD TALK ABOUT JESUS PEOPLE WOULD PRETTY MUCH LEAVE ME ALONE.  THE MORE I WOULD MENTION JESUS, JUST IN CONVERSATION, THE MORE AT EASE PEOPLE BECAME AROUND ME. THEY KNEW WHERE I STOOD AND IT GOT TO WHERE IF SOMEONE WAS HAVING A PROBLEM, THEY WOULD ASK ME TO PRAY FOR THEM.  I AM NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO SAY, "OH YES, I WILL PRAY FOR YOU", AND THEN FORGET ABOUT IT.  I WOULD PRAY FOR THEM RIGHT THERE IN THEIR SHOP, THEIR STORE OR WHEREVER WE WERE.  PEOPLE WANT WHAT WE HAVE BUT THEY JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET IT.  IT IS OUR JOB TO TELL THEM.




TEMPTATION IS A HARD THING TO OVERCOME.  HEBREWS 4:15 SAYS THAT JESUS "was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin."  THE SAME SPIRIT THAT IS IN JESUS IS IN US AND GOD GAVE US A FREE WILL TO DO RIGHT OR WRONG.  AND, DON'T EVER SAY THAT GOD WAS TEMPTING YOU TO SHOW SOMETHING TO YOU OR TO SEE IF YOU WOULD DO THE RIGHT THING OR NOT.  JAMES 1:13 SAYS "Let no man say when he is tempted , I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:"  YOU CAN'T BE TEMPTED BY SOMETHING YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT.  SIN STARTS IN THE MIND.



JUST KEEP YOUR HEART AND MIND FOCUSED ON JESUS.  HE IS ASKING US TO LET HIM LIVE IN US.  GALATIANS 2:20 SAYS " I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."  IT IS HARD TO SIN WHEN YOU ARE EITHER IN CHURCH, READING YOUR BIBLE, PRAYING FOR SOMEONE OR JUST TALKING TO JESUS.  IT IS ALL WHERE YOUR FOCUS IS.  WE ALL NEED TO GET SO CLOSE TO JESUS AND SO TUNED INTO HIM THAT WE EVEN DREAM ABOUT HIM.  NOW THAT IS A GOOD NIGHT.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

"PETITION NOT REPETITION" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-05-25

Petition Not Repetition


May 25th




Mark 8:24-25, 'And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.'



MATTHEW 7:7-11; MARK 8:22-25



It was unusual for Jesus to inquire about the results of His ministry as He did in verse 23. It was even more unusual that Jesus laid hands on this man a second time. This is the only example in the New Testament where Jesus had to minister to any need more than once to affect a total healing.

Many people request things from God and then look at their circumstances to see if God answered their prayer. That is walking by sight and not by faith. If they can't 'see' God's answer, then they pray again asking for the same thing. This is not the way Jesus taught us to pray and receive. We can be certain that Jesus didn't lay hands on this man a second time because He thought His Father hadn't heard Him the first the time. Since the man received partial sight, it is evident that God's healing power was at work in him. Jesus was not petitioning His Father again for healing.

Through His spirit, Jesus knew that unbelief was hindering a perfect manifestation of God's power in this man, and He simply gave him another 'dose' of the anointing power of God. Satan may hinder, but cannot overcome someone who continues resisting him. Believe that you received when you prayed and continue to apply the power of God. Press in such a degree that you can confront anything that is contrary to what you have asked and overcome it. Perseverance in prayer is the key to overcoming Satan - not God.


"THE STORY OF LAZARUS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-05-24
THE STORY OF LAZARUS


THIS MORNING'S MESSAGE IS SIMPLY TO SHOW YOU HOW INTERESTING THE BIBLE IS.  ONCE YOU GET INTO READING IT YOU WILL REALLY ENJOY IT AND YOU WILL BE SURPRISED AT THE HELP IT WILL GIVE YOU IN YOUR EVERY DAY LIFE.  

 

ONE OF THE STORIES I REALLY ENJOY READING IS JOHN 11 WHICH TELLS THE STORY ABOUT JESUS RAISING LAZARUS FROM THE DEAD.  WHETHER YOU KNEW IT OR NOT, VERSE 35 IS THE SHORTEST VERSE IN THE BIBLE AND IT JUST SAYS "Jesus wept."  THERE ARE A FEW MORE INTERESTING THINGS IN THIS CHAPTER AND I HAVE A FEW COMMENTS ABOUT SOME OF THEM.

 

JESUS WAS NOT WEEPING BECAUSE LAZARUS HAD DIED BECAUSE HE KNEW HE WAS GOING TO RAISE HIM FROM THE DEAD.  HE WEPT BECAUSE OF THEIR UNBELIEF.  THIS MUST HAVE HURT HIM VERY MUCH BECAUSE IT GOES ON TO SAY THAT "he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled"  HE HAD TOLD THEM THAT HE WAS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE BUT EVIDENTLY THEY HAD NOT BELIEVED HIM.  HOWEVER THEY DID WHEN LAZARUS CAME BACK TO LIFE.  IT SAYS THAT SOME OF THE JEWS THAT HAD COME TO SEE MARY BELIEVED ON HIM.




I BELIEVE THAT JESUS WAITED THOSE FOUR DAYS SO THERE WOULD BE NO MISTAKING THE FACT THAT HE WAS DEAD.  MARTHA EVEN SAID "Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days."



ANOTHER THING THAT I THOUGHT WAS SO GREAT IS THAT WHEN HE CALLED LAZARUS TO COME FORTH,  HE APPEARED AT THE OPENING OF THE TOMB ALL BOUND UP.  HE COULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN UP AND WALKED BUT HE WAS THERE AND JESUS HAD TO TELL THEM TO LOOSE HIM.



ONE LAST THOUGHT, I OFTEN WONDERED IF JESUS HADN'T CALLED LAZARUS BY NAME AND HAD JUST SAID "COME FORTH", HOW MANY OF THE DEAD WOULD HAVE COME FORTH FROM THEIR GRAVES.



JOHN 11 IS A VERY INTERESTING CHAPTER AND I AM SURE YOU WILL ENJOY READING IT. JOHN 12 CONTINUES WITH JESUS HAVING DINNER AT LAZARUS HOME AND I KNOW YOU WILL ENJOY THAT ALSO.  READING THE BIBLE REALLY IS ENJOYABLE AND IF YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND THE KING JAMES VERSION, GET ANOTHER TRANSLATION THAT YOU CAN UNDERSTAND.  THE AMPLIFIED IS A GREAT ONE TO CHOSE OR THE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION. WHAT EVER IT TAKES,  PLEASE GET INTO GOD'S WORD.  YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.  ALL VERSIONS OF THE BIBLE ARE ON LINE AND ARE FREE TO READ.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

"SYMPTOMS OF A HARD HEART" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-05-24

Symptoms Of A Hard Heart


May 24th




Mark 8:17, 'And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?'



MATTHEW 16:1-12; MARK 8:11-21



Just a few days before this instance, hardened hearts caused Jesus' disciples to be amazed when they saw Jesus walk on the water to them. Here, Jesus' statements reveal some of the characteristics of someone with a hardened heart.

First, a hard heart keeps us from perceiving spiritual truths. This is why everyone in a church service hears exactly the same message yet, some will receive while others won't. It's not the Word that is the variable, but rather the condition of the hearts. A hard heart stops spiritual perception.

Second, a hardened heart stops us from understanding spiritual truth. When a person doesn't understand God's Word, Satan finds no resistance when he comes to steal it away.

Third, a hard heart keeps us from remembering. This isn't to say that we can't recall facts or scriptures. As related in Mark 8:19-20, the disciples remembered the facts of the two miraculous feedings, but they had forgotten any spiritual lessons they might have learned. Likewise, some people can quote scripture or remember what the sermon was about, but they can't perceive the spiritual life in the message or retain what they did perceive.

A hardned heart blinds us to any spiritual perception and keeps us thinking only in the natural realm. Small faith and a hardened heart are the same. Hebrews 3:12-13 parallels an evil heart of unbelief to a hardened heart. It takes great faith to keep our heart sensitive to God. Seek Him with your whole heart today.


"ARE YOU IN GOD'S WILL?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-05-23
HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE?  STRANGE QUESTION?  A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD SAY IT IS THE WAY THEY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT UP AND THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TAUGHT RIGHT FROM WRONG. 


WELL, THAT IS ALL GOOD BUT HOW DOES GOD WANT YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE? NOW THAT IS A DIFFERENT QUESTION.  THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW THIS IS BY READING THE BIBLE.  YES, I AM BACK TO READING THE BIBLE.  WELL, IT IS IMPORTANT....IT IS GOD'S WORD AND IS THE ONLY WAY WE CAN EVER KNOW WHAT GOD'S WILL IS FOR OUR LIVES.


I DON'T CARE HOW YOU WERE BROUGHT UP AND HOW GOOD YOU HAVE BEEN ALL YOUR LIFE, IF YOU DON'T KNOW GOD'S WILL FOR YOUR LIFE, YOU ARE LOST.  I DON'T MEAN YOU ARE GOING TO HELL (IF YOU ARE BORN AGAIN), YOU JUST DON'T KNOW IN WHAT DIRECTION GOD WANTS YOU TO GO.  SEE WHAT IT SAYS IN MATTHEW 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. YOU HAVE GOT TO KNOW HIS WILL.


YOU MIGHT SAY YOU LISTEN TO THIS TEACHER, OR TO THIS EVANGELIST, OR TO THIS PREACHER BUT WHAT IF THEY ARE WRONG?  DO YOU EVER GO TO YOUR BIBLE AND CHECK OUT THE THINGS THEY ARE TEACHING AND DOES IT LINE UP WITH THE WORD OF GOD?  IF IT DOESN'T AND YOU ARE JUST TAKING THEIR WORD FOR IT, YOU BOTH ARE IN TROUBLE.  JOHN 17:17 SAYS "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.". THIS IS IN JESUS' PRAYER FOR HIS DISCIPLES AND FOR US. "SANCTIFY US THROUGH HIS WORD", THAT IS WHAT IT IS SAYING.


NOW IT IS UP TO US.  FIRST WE HAVE GOT TO WANT TO KNOW HIS WORD, BECAUSE THAT IS HIS WILL, AND NOT JUST PLAY AROUND BUT REALLY WANT IT. IN JEREMIAH 29:13 IT SAYS "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."  GOD WILL KNOW IF YOU ARE JUST PLAYING AROUND.  HE WANTS SOMEONE HE CAN USE AND DEPEND ON.  WON'T YOU BE ONE OF THEM?


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

"JESUS CHALLENGES THE SADDUCEES" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-05-23

Jesus Challenges The Sadducees


May 23rd




Matthew 16:1, 'The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would show them a sign from heaven.'



MATTHEW 16:1-4



The Sadducees were a Jewish sect (Acts 5:17), of both a political and religious nature, that was best known for its opposition to the more popular party (the Pharisees), because of differences in various doctrinal and political questions. Sadducees rejected the oral tradition of the Pharisees who made a 'mountain' of burdensome legislation and accepted only the written law. We are told they believed there is 'no resurrection, nor angel, nor spirit' (Acts 23:8). From Josephus, we learn that the Sadducees believed that the soul perishes with the body (Antiq. XVIII. 1.4) and, therefore, can receive neither penalties nor rewards in an afterlife (War II. 8.14).

The most significant mention of the Sadducees in the Gospels concerns their interview with Jesus in Jerusalem. They tried to trap Jesus with a crafty question concerning the resurrection. In His answer, Jesus accused them of not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God (Mt. 22:29). He then proceeded to quote from the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible) out of Exodus 3:6 in support of the doctrine of the resurrection. The Sadducees became alarmed and decided to take action (Jn. 11:47), as Jesus posed a threat to their security and position (as in the cleansing of the temple; Mk. 11:15-18). Confronted with Jesus and His claims, the Sadducees were able to unite with their traditional enemies, the Pharisees, for the purpose of disposing of Jesus. Both parties worked together for the arrest and trial of Jesus by the Sanhedrin. These religious leaders were only aware of external actions and ignorant of the issues of the heart. Religion (man trying to approach God) will always differ with Christianity (God coming to man) in this respect. 'Man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart' (1 Sam. 16:7).


"ARE YOU GOING TO HEAVEN?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-05-22
WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL HOW WE SPREAD THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST BUT WE CANNOT COMPROMISING IN ANY WAY.  I'LL TELL YOU WHY.  ONE DAY I ASKED THIS LADY IF SHE KNEW HER HUSBAND WAS NOT SAVED AND SHE SAID YES.  I THEN ASK HER IF SHE KNEW HE WAS GOING TO HELL.  WELL, I PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE PUT IT A LITTLE MORE DELICATE BECAUSE SHE WENT BALLISTIC.  SHE STARTED TELLING ME HOW GOOD HE WAS AND THAT THERE WAS NO WAY GOD WOULD SEND HIM TO HELL.  WELL, I TOLD HER, ACCORDING TO GOD'S WORD, SHE WAS WRONG BUT IT WASN'T GOD THAT WAS SENDING HIM TO HELL ANYWAY BUT HIMSELF.  ONCE BEING A SUNDAY TEACHER SHE HAD TO KNOW BETTER.

 

JUST IN CASE THERE ARE ANY MORE PEOPLE OUT THERE LIKE THIS LADY, I AM GOING TO SHOW YOU WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT RIGHT OUT OF THE BIBLE.  

 

JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY.

JOHN 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 

ALL SINS HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN, EVEN YOURS.

1ST JOHN 2:1-2 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

 

 

WHAT WE ALL MUST BELIEVE.

1ST CORINTHIANS 15:3-4  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;   And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 

 

THE GOSPEL IS THE POWER OF SALVATION.

ROMANS 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

 

SO IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO IS NOT SAVED, YOU MIGHT WANT TO REFRESH YOUR MEMORY WITH WHAT IT TAKES TO BE BORN AGAIN.  THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT ARE GOING TO HELL AND REALLY DON'T REALIZE IT.  THEY THINK THEY CAN DO IT BY THEMSELVES.  WE MUST SHOW THEM THE WAY.  REMEMBER WHAT PAUL SAID IN ROMANS 10:14 "How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?"

 

YOU MIGHT NOT THINK YOU ARE A PREACHER BUT WE ALL ARE.  DON'T LET SOMEONE GO TO HELL BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T CARE ENOUGH TO TELL THEM WHAT THEY NEEDED TO KNOW.

 


 


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

The Ministry Of The Holy Spirit


May 22nd




Mark 8:12, 'And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.'



MARK 8:11-13



The Greek word used here for 'sighed deeply' means an intense grieving, inaudible prayer, or groan. This is intercession of the Holy Spirit, with groanings that cannot be uttered. Some Spirit-filled Christians believe this means groanings that cannot be uttered in normal speech and that this refers to speaking in tongues. However, this actually refers to a type of intercession different than speaking in tongues.

In John 11:33 and 38, Jesus groaned in the Spirit twice, and in those cases there were no words uttered. It was exactly as the Scripture states, a groaning in the Spirit. Everyone who has the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit has or will have this happen to them. Paul was referring to this in Galatians 4:19 when he spoke of travailing in birth for the Galatians. This groaning of the Holy Spirit is not just a grief but a groan of anger and resistance against Satan's devices in our lives. Many times, Christians don't discern this because they think it is just their own grief over the situation. But, this is the Holy Spirit desiring to intercede with us against our problems.

Jesus drew on this ministry of the Holy Spirit. John 11:33 and 38 says, that Jesus groaned in the Spirit twice when He raised Lazarus from the dead. What infirmity did Jesus have that He needed this ministry of the Holy Spirit? Jesus had no sin, but He did have an infirmity. It was His physical mind.

Even a sinless human mind could not comprehend raising a man from the grave after four days. If Jesus needed the Holy Spirit to help Him when He didn't know how to pray, then this should certainly be an important ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

"WOULD GOD GIVE YOU A DISEASE?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-05-21
YOU WILL REMEMBER THAT I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT PEOPLE SAYING THAT GOD PUTS ILLNESSES ON PEOPLE TO EITHER TEACH THEM SOMETHING OR TO GET GLORY OUT OF IT.  THIS IS SO WRONG IN SO MANY WAYS.  DO YOU THINK YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT TO ONE OF HIS OWN CHILDREN?  

 

ANYWAY, THEY WENT ON TO ASK ABOUT PAUL'S THORN IN THE FLESH.  LET'S PUT THE SCRIPTURE HERE SO WE ALL CAN READ IT.  2ND CORINTHIANS 12:7-9 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.  For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

 

 

PAUL'S "THORN IN THE FLESH" WAS NOT AN ILLNESS OR SICKNESS AND GOD DID NOT GIVE IT TO HIM ANYWAY.  AS THE SCRIPTURE SAYS IT WAS "THE MESSENGER OF SATAN".  THE GREEK WORD THAT WAS TRANSLATED "MESSENGER" HERE IS "AGGELOS" AND IT MEANS "A MESSENGER, ESPECIALLY AN ANGEL".  HIS THORN WAS AN ANGEL THAT SATAN ASSIGNED TO PAUL TO TRY TO DISCREDIT HIS TEACHING OF JESUS SO THE PEOPLE WOULD NOT BELIEVE HIM.  IT WAS A FORM OF PERSECUTION FROM SATAN AND GOD SAID HIS GRACE WAS SUFFICIENT.  

 

THE REASON GOD DIDN'T TAKE PAUL'S THORN AWAY WAS NOT BECAUSE HE WANTED TO AFFLICT PAUL, IT WAS BECAUSE BELIEVERS ARE NOT REDEEMED FROM PERSECUTION.  PAUL EVEN SAID THIS IN HIS SECOND LETTER TO TIMOTHY.  LET ME JUST PUT IT HERE.  (2ND TIMOTHY 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”)  SO, YOU CAN SEE FROM THIS THAT SICKNESS OR PAIN HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH PAUL'S THORN AND WE MUST CONTINUE STUDYING THE BIBLE TO BE SURE WE KNOW THESE THINGS AND CAN CORRECT PEOPLE WHEN THEY GET OFF BASE.   

 

WE ALL ALSO NEED TO CONTINUE TO THANK JESUS THAT WE ARE HEALED.  THE SCRIPTURE TELLS US THIS IN 1ST PETER 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.  IT ALSO SAYS THAT WHEN WE PRAY, WE MUST BELIEVE WE HAVE RECEIVED AND THEN IT WILL BE GIVEN US.  MARK 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.   

 

SO WE MUST STAND STRONG IN OUR FAITH AND BELIEF AND OUR HEALING WILL BE MANIFESTED INTO OUR BODIES.  JESUS TIMING IS PERFECT AND WE MUST TRUST HIM.  AND, DON'T EVER LET ANYONE TELL YOU THAT GOD PUT A SICKNESS ON YOU, THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.  HE LOVES ALL OF US.

 

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
