Transcript (Experimental)

Is this better, Andy? Okay, I was told by Andy that people couldn’t hear me in the back last time I made an announcement. But I just wanted to get up real quick and just kind of talk to you guys. A couple of quick announcements. There are some DVDs and books and things that are in the back office that can be signed Out on loan for people to watch or to read. We would just encourage and ask that if you do sign them out that you sign them out on the signup sheet back there, that would be much appreciated. Also, we have an adult dinner night out tomorrow night at barrios at 6pm. There’s a sign up sheet out there we’d love for anybody who’d like to come to join us that would be wonderful. And also we have a youth conference coming up at it’s called the encounter conferences at Redeemer church in Utica, and it is November 8, and ninth is when we’re going to be going. So our youth we have a great group of kids that are coming and any kids who are not already signed up if you’d like to come please see me or Frank Pastor Frank Jr. or any of the kids Taylor Madison, frankly, any of the kids that have gone they’d love to talk to you about it. But anyways, next Sunday after church at 1230, we’re doing a spaghetti dinner that is going to be hosted by the youth to serve you. As a fundraiser to help offset some of the costs. We will be staying in a hotel, the conference tickets, that kind of thing. We’d love for you to join us 1230 next Sunday right here for a spaghetti dinner. $5 a person $20 for a family of four or more. And also to I would just encourage that we’re collecting bottles and cans, that’s something we do all the time that the bottles and cans that come in right now all the money is also going to go towards the youth as part of the fundraiser to offset some of the costs for this conference. So any bottles or cans, we’d welcome them to come right into the church. And thank you so much.

Morning everyone is this too loud? Little loud, little loud for me.

Okay, that’s perfect right there. Okay, I you know, right off, I want to say something because I don’t want you to be distracted. I’m having treatment for basal cells in my forehead. And I want to tell everyone because people are looking at me they’re going like this, how you doing?

You know, and they keep looking. And so that’s what all this is, okay? I don’t have the plague or anything like that. I’m just having basal cells treated. Okay, if you want to open your Bibles with me, we’re in Leviticus 18. You know, I just want to mention our men’s retreat was over the top. It was really just so fantastic. What we’re praying about and you can be praying with us is the possibility sometime maybe in January or February having a couple’s retreat at the same place. And there is a one of the buildings that are called the Galilee and it’s set up for a couple of You know, each bedroom has its own bath and that kind of thing. So I really encourage you to think about it. And our Couples Retreat isn’t like you think it’s not it’s not like just seven steps to a happy marriage. You know why every marriage is different. It really is you there’s no one way you can explain what a good marriage is. Every marriage is different. And so we have a whole idea of how we’re going to, you know, set this up, but be praying, we don’t even know if the Lord is leading us to do it yet be praying about it. And if you’re interested, interested, we’ll be putting a sign up sheet when we’re ready to start figuring out whether we’re going to have it or not. Okay, that makes sense. Okay.

Let’s pray. Father, we come before you in Jesus name and how thankful we are for the salvation that we share together. Without you, we have nothing with you. We have everything. And I pray heavenly Father that your Holy Spirit would come and minister to us this afternoon. That you would use me as your instrument is your servant Lord, then I might be able to break open your word in such a way that administers to each one here. And so now come father, by your Holy Spirit, and and make yourself known to us through your word I asked in Jesus name, amen. Amen.

You ever think of how simple, peaceful and joyful life would be, if we would simply take him at his word? You know, we always think, well, maybe the Word of God applies here. And this is all the Word of God to man. And so the reality is, if we would simply take him at his word, study His word, and allow it to be applied to our lives. Life would be so simple, so joyful, so, so peaceful, doesn’t mean you wouldn’t have problems. But you’d have peace through the problems.

Now, in Leviticus 18, I want to let you know right off the bat, I’m not going to be reading all of it, because it’s very uncomfortable. Ball. But it’s God’s word. I actually tried to work it. So pastor Frank Jr. had this portion, but it just it just didn’t work out. But anyway, it’s it’s a portion. That’s God’s word. And I will be reading the first five verses because that is the catalyst for what we’re going to be getting into an arrest of it. But the reality is that God told Moses to teach the children of Israel this because they were going to be exposed and tempted by all these, you know, awful kinds of sin. So, in Leviticus, if you want to open your Bibles, if you don’t have open already to Leviticus 18 and verses one through five, I’m going to read right now.

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, speak to the children of Israel and say to them, now I want you to notice something. How many times in these short five verses God speaks of Himself has been Lord has being Almighty and how many times in this portion, it says you speaking to us, very personal.

So the Lord God said to Moses, saying, speak to the children of Israel and say to them, I Am the Lord your God, according to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwell, you shall not do according to the doings of the land of Canaan, or I am bringing you, you shall not do nor walk in in in their ordinances, you shall observe my judgments and keep my ordinances, to walk in them, I am the Lord your God, you shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them, I am the Lord. And so we have to understand that God was bringing them out of Egypt, and he was taking them into Canaan. And both the Egyptians and the Canaanites had very perverted practices that God was telling them. I don’t want you to enter into these. I want you to Stay away from these, because I am the Lord your God, and your to be a separate people, you’re to be different. And we have to understand, brothers and sisters, the greatest witness that we have is not all the knowledge that we possess is not all the techniques we have of evangelizing the greatest witness that we have is ourselves is our life is the way we live. And that’s the reason it’s so important to study the Word of God because it is the roadmap to living a godly and holy life. And so we realize as we look at this portion, that something that I think we’re all aware of, is sexual sin is always the outcome of any nation or peoples that turn your back on God and no longer follow His word. I shared this I think a few weeks ago, and many people are surprised by it. But if you study history, and you know, especially the Roman Empire, you’ll find At one time there, they were a very moral people. In fact, they had penalties for anyone who was sexually immoral. And then by the end of the Roman Empire, it was absolutely wild. And that’s the way it seems every nation goes. And it’s interesting, except for revival, our nation would have gone down this path many years ago. You know, we have the term that we use, considered an 1890s they call it they call that the gay 90s. And not in the way you’re thinking it was just happy, you know, gay 90s. But it was really going down a path of sexual immorality. And then you had the revivals, you know of Finney and moody. And like that, that were sweeping in, even into our country, and it prevented it. And then you had the 20s. And you remember the, well you don’t remember either July. I just read about it in history, but you had the flappers and you had all that and everything was going wild again, and then you had World War One. And then you also had to revive To the 50s, great revivals that went to the country. Then the same thing was happening, you got into the 70s things were going crazy going, you know, outrageously out of hand in our country. And then you had the Jesus movement, which Calvary Chapel was considered if you study church history books, Calvary Chapel was at the forefront of the Jesus movement. And it stopped that kind of immorality from sweeping through the country. But we haven’t had anything since then. And that’s the reason I believe our nation is getting to the place It is our world is getting to the place it is. But we can’t be surprised, because the Word of God and the Lord has shown us clearly through His Word, that before he takes his church out of the world, the world’s going to be ripe for judgment. So before the rapture, the world’s going to be ripe for judgment. And that’s where we are right now. Which the one encouraging thing is, is it causes us to lift up our heads and Scripture says Because our redemption is drawing near, Jesus is coming for his church.

Now man, we have to understand, unchecked will always take what God made to be beautiful and pervert it, that’s what man does. And this portion is telling us not to substitute one evil lifestyle for another evil lifestyle. We’re not to be either like the gypsies nor like the Canaanites. And so we have to ask ourselves, how did everything get to the way the way it has gotten? You know, when we think of sexuality, you have to understand that is God’s wedding present to a couple to a man into a woman’s his wedding present. And so consequently, anytime it is taken outside of those confines, it will eventually become perverted. It’ll spiral down worse and worse and worse. Now, let me read you from Romans 15. For it says everything that was written in the past was written for our learning everything, even portions of Scripture like this. But we have to understand what you learn means nothing until you put it into practice. I remember years ago before many, many years ago before I was called into the ministry, and I was teaching at horse heads high school, I don’t know if any of you know where that is. And I was teaching in horse heads high school. And when I was teaching, I was assigned to cover a chapter on smoking. And I used to, you know, tell the kids I show all the diagrams about how it affects the Vla, you know, and then eventually goes into the crate, you know, all that kind of stuff how bad smoking was, and then I go into faculty room and light up. I used to at that time, I probably smoked maybe a pack and a half, two packs a day.

But here’s the point. What I was teaching. I believed it. I knew it was bad for me, then I didn’t line up. But the reality is, I didn’t own what I was teaching, until I came to that place of realizing, you know what, if I really own this, I’ve got to make whatever changes are necessary. You know what I’m saying? In order to avoid me having all the negative effects of tobacco? And I did. It’s been I don’t even know how many years more years and I know that I haven’t smoked cigarettes, or anything. I don’t want to I haven’t smoked cigarettes. Oh, what is he smoking? Yeah. Now I don’t smoke anything at all. And so the point I’m making, it’s not enough to study scripture. And to learn from it. We have to be willing to apply it to our lives. Now verses six through 30 in this portion, which I will not read it when you go home, and I usually do but I’m staying away from it as far as reading It is all about incest, beastiality, and the offering of our children into the fires of Molek. That’s what it’s all about. And so we have to understand. sexual sin has always been one of Satan’s greatest tools. No other sin involves the flesh, like sexual sin does. In fact, if you want to turn with me to First Corinthians, it’s worth making sure you have this underlined in your Bible, First Corinthians chapter six. First Corinthians chapter six, go to verse 18. First Corinthians 6:18. And it says, flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit. What’s your Gods’? We’re His, it belongs to him.

But before I get into what I’m going to be sharing with you this morning, I want you to understand that there are many people that get caught in some of these sins either as a victim or as a participant. Get caught in these kinds of sins. And you have to understand there is forgiveness and there is cleansing and purification by the Holy Spirit. Understand that. It makes no difference. Whatever you have done, God will forgive you and cleanse you and purify you, and sometimes it’s a process, but God will do it, because He’s a God of love. And one of the things in reading this is I can help asking myself, How in the world did our society get to where we are? How do we get to this place where immorality is the norm? And anyone who speaks against the immorality of our nation, they’re committing hate crime? How can that be? If you’re a Christian, you’re hateful person. If you criticize Christians, you’re an intellect. I mean, it’s crazy. It’s everything’s gotten upside down. But how this happened is what we call gradualism. Satan is patient attempting us into evil. And let me share with you what gradualism is. If you take a frog, and drop it in, I mean, you know, big, fat, full sized frog, and you drop it into an open pot of boiling water, it’ll jump right out. If you take that take that same frog and you put it in a pot of cool water and turn the heat on hundred your stove. The frogs gonna swim around Nicole water, it’s going to get warmer and warmer, Just keep swimming around being really happy. The next thing you know, the water starts boiling and he’s dead. That’s gradualism.

You know, it’s kind of like when you first get in your tub, it’s like, oh, this is hot. And then by the time you’re in it for a little bit, gotta turn into hot water and warm it up a little bit. That’s gradualism, I’m just trying to make the point is that Satan knows better than to try to shove us into something that’s really awful. Gradually. Sin will always take you further than you intended to go. Always, always, and we have to understand that.

Now. If you think of the moral state of our nation that we’re in, we have to realize according to the suave gradualism, it didn’t just happen overnight. You know, sin in our nation becomes progressively worse and worse and worse. There’s nothing you can even think or imagine that you’re not capable of finding an expression in, if you so desire. Because man is never satisfied with his sin. Once he’s conquered once 10 he’s ready for another. Once he’s become used to one sin, He wants to go deeper. That’s what we have to understand.

In the 60s, we had the slogan, those of you who are old enough might remember this. Make love not war, man. Remember that I was in the army in the 60s may love that war man. And, you know, when I was in the army, we were not allowed to wear uniforms to travel. Because there’s so much animosity against the military. When I first started college as a veteran, I was not allowed to live on campus because I was a veteran, isn’t that crazy? But anyway, 60s make love not war. In the 70s we had to pay if it feels good man, do it. Remember that? Well, some people do. And in the 90s, we had the slogan, you know, Don’t Tell, Don’t Ask, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. In other words, do whatever you want to do. Just keep it to yourself. Now, in the time we’re living in, guess what, there’s no limitations. Whatever you want to do is fine. Just Just do it. As a matter of fact, anyone who tells you what you’re doing is wrong. They’re wrong. They’re full of hate and animosity, but the thing they don’t understand, is it any one of us, who shares the love of God with other people, we’re not doing it to be mean or to put them down? It’s because we love them. God has an unbelievable promise for those who belong to him. But yet, we are around people all the time, who are caught up in these kinds of of sin. But the thing we have to remember is this brothers and sisters, this is so important, we talked about this at the men’s retreat, it’s not up to you to change people. It’s not up to you. You share the love of God with them. You share the Word with them. Because anytime we go around, you know what you’re doing is wrong. You’re going to go to hell. thing, look at us, and this guy’s out of his mind. But if you just show God’s love, and you and you know, and just encourage people, and as you have opportunity, break, open the word, let the Holy Spirit do the work. There’s not one person here who has been born again of pastor Frank. Every single one of you here have been born again of the Spirit. And he the Spirit of God is the only one that can change the heart, whether it be unto salvation, or victory over certain sins. We have to trust the Lord. Now, one of the things that we have to realize is that many of these things that we’re speaking of, there’s nothing new under the sun, Scripture tells us, and you don’t have to look at it right now, but, in Second Samuel chapter 13, verses 11 through 14, we find that even David’s son, Amon, committed instance with his sister Tamar, and he was very severely punished for it. In Isaiah five and verse 20, it says, woe to those who call evil good and good evil. Who put darkness for light and light for darkness. And don’t we have that today?

Hey, you know, everything’s, you know, this is gonna sound really corny to you, and probably, maybe Nintendo be the only ones who know what I’m talking about. Oh, God might remember to, but you remember the cage smash show? Any keras ever the case with when the moon comes over the mountain. You, the rest of you are looking at me like it’s an old person thing. But Kate Smith was a, she had a variety show she she was a great singer. And she was like super moral. And I can remember my grandmother saying, there’s nothing, nothing decent on TV anymore, but the cape Smith show. And I think if he saw if she somehow could come back, she was born in 1880s. She somehow could come back and sit in front of a TV today, she would have another heart attack. I mean, he’d be like, how did we get there? How did we get from Kate Smith to so much of what’s on TV today? It’s absolutely amazing. It’s astounding.

And in Romans 12 nine it says love Let love be without hypocrisy at home What is evil, clean to what is good. And that’s what we need need to do. We need to have abhor what is evil. But I’m afraid that even in the church even in me, even in my heart, I’m not pointing fingers at anyone I’m saying, This is our problem. We’ve gotten to a place where we don’t abhor evil. We watch it. How do we get there?

And once again, you can’t go telling people you know, you know what, if you’re really a good Christian, you need to go home and burn your TV. No, you know, don’t do that. That’ll pollute the environment. We need to take your TV and put it in the dumpster. You know. But the point is, that’s not the way anything like that should work. It should always be the Holy Spirit, working in the hearts and lives of people. Now, this was shocking to me. I’m not going to get into any detail. But if you do any research on incest in this nation, Becoming acceptable? How could it be gradualism is becoming acceptable. And what this is telling us is the church needs to wake up and shine the light of Jesus Christ brightly in this nation. Now, I believe that in our nation in our world today, there’s something very different than there ever has been in history. Because you always had light, the light of Christ, we always had the darkness of this world and Satan, then there’s always this big gray area that many people were operating in. And some were, you know, motivated overcharged to the dark side is sound like a star wars were motivated over to the dark side and some were motivated over to the light. I don’t think there’s a gray area anymore. I think people are either walking in the light of Jesus Christ, or they’re walking in the ways of the world. I think that’s the way it is.

And so we have to understand for us to let our light shine is so important in the times in In which we’re living. Now, I believe I really do. There might be one last great revival. But I don’t think I think it’s going to be like the revivals of the past to change countries to change nations. I think it’s just going to be revival of people being saved before Jesus Christ comes for his church. I think there’s going to be one last revival, because the world is ripe for judgment. And understand that the whole reason that Jesus is taking his church out of the world is because his judgment is coming upon the world. And his judgment is coming not because he’s an evil, angry God, His judgment is coming, because sin is important to him. And the fact is that he gives us every opportunity to commit our lives to Christ, to be born again to be filled with the Spirit. Because here’s the thing, and I’ll tell you right off There’s nothing you have done that I didn’t do. There’s nothing that you struggle with, that I don’t struggle with. But the point is, we need to struggle. I love the verse of scripture that says, You have not yet struggled to the shedding of blood doesn’t mean you literally go around and shed blood, but it’s talking about just pour your heart and life into it. We need to struggle, you know, against sin. Now, what are we to do now, today? Let me read to you from Romans, chapter six, and verses 12 through 14. Romans 612 through 14. Therefore, do not let sin reign in your moral in your mortal body, so that so that you obey his evil desire. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life and offer the parts of your body to him as interest servants of righteousness.

Listen to verse 14, for sin shall not be your master, because you are not under the law. But you’re under grace. Now understand, that last part is so important. But you’re not under the law. You’re under grace. That’s why sin should not be your master. Well, what does that mean? What it means is if we’re trying to stop sinning on our own and trying to find our own righteousness and our own, you know, forgiveness and cleansing, you’ll never find it. But we’re under grace. We’re into the grace of God. And so no matter what sin you’ve committed, what’s my favorite verse, right first john, one seven, if we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us, and purify us from ON righteousness. And so the reality is you’re not going to have Certain sins, certain besetting sins that you struggle with, we all have certain sins that we struggle with. And I want you to know this, there’s not going to be one time you say, okay, God, forgive me my sin. And then you turn around and you fall to it again and say, Well, I guess I’m done for because I already asked God to forgive me my sin and he did and I fall into it again. One of my other favorite verses that you guys all have heard me quote, so many times in Proverbs says, the righteous man. Now notice it’s talking about a righteous man, though a righteous man fall. Seven times he rises again, but the wicked fall by calamity. The point is, even as a righteous person, you’re going to fall but you get back up to a righteous man, Paul, he rises again, you get back up, say, Jesus, I really messed up, forgive me. Let your grace Cover me. I’m going to move on. I used to tell people, and I was one of those weird I’ve always been where I still am but one of those weird guys. I didn’t start smoking until I was being discharged from the army and clearing post net crazy when use you start smoking when you’re 12 or something like that. And in I smoked, you know, after I was discharged right through college and even when we’re first married, and when I really felt the Lord wanted me to give up tobacco, I used to tell people, quitting tobacco is the easiest thing in the world. I quit every single Monday. You ever do that? Well, Lord, with your help, I’ll never smoke again. And then Tuesday comes, I’ll just have one. Just one cigarette today, then, oh, you guys, probably any of you who’ve gone through quitting to back you might know what I’m talking about. Then you go through the thing. I’m taking all the cigarettes out of this pack except for for cigarettes I’m going to have for today. Then you buy another pack. You know? It wasn’t until I came to a place of crying out to the Lord and saying, Lord, I’m a slave to tobacco. God, I just can’t get rid of it. I need your help. And I really came to that place of saying I’m never going to smoke again. The same thing with drinking. And a pretty serious drinking problem, too. I was what you might call a happy drunk, I was got happy, and I only drank and weekends. I took my work very seriously. The time I come home Friday until I would go back to teaching Monday. I was drunk the whole time. And the same thing I thought, well, I’m going to stop drinking Boilermakers. I don’t know if any of you know what that is. It’s a bottle of beer in a juice glass. Was he on a straw? Stop drinking Boilermakers I’ll just drink beer. I just drink more beer. Than I said, You know what? I’ll just drink wine. Because I don’t even like wine that much. And I became a wineo. And it wasn’t until I came to a place where I said, Lord, I have to stop. Cold Turkey. I can’t drink any of these alcoholic beverages, help me, and He did. I’d like to tell you it was just the easiest thing in the world it wasn’t. But anything that is worth anything requires some kind of struggle or hard work. Anything. You know, whether you’re trying to master some sport or some game or whatever it might is, might be. It’s hard work. I know my grandson’s work really hard at these video games, and I’ll tell you what, they’ve mastered them. You can’t even I’m just joking, guys. They’re all sitting in the back. But you understand the point that I’m making. And so we have to realize that God is there to give us the victory. But the reality is, it’s only by His grace, because you fall he get back up, you fall you get back up, but every time you’re taking two steps forward and one step back, you’re still taking one step forward. Right? And you’re going to come to that place of having victory in the Lord God is, is just so good.

Hebrews 13:14 marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterers, and all sexually immoral. First, Peter 211 Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and strangers in the world to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul?

I’ll tell you that we have a great example in Scripture of how to have victory over these kinds of sin. And as Joseph, and I’m going to be reading to you from Genesis 39, verse 12. But let me share something at this point. Joseph is a young man. I know a lot of times people say who’s probably just a teenager? No, he’s probably young man like in his 20s or whatever. And here he is at full maturity. And all the desires of manhood are in him. It tells us in Scripture, he was a really good looking guy, and he was a slave. typographer and Potter firs wife noticed his good looks. And so here she comes to him and says, Why with me? Well, think about it. He’s away from his own nation. He’s He’s in, in, you know, captivity. And, you know, like, hey, well, nobody knows. He knew, and he knew his God would know. And so in Genesis 3912, she caught him by his cloak and said, Come to bed with me. But he left his cloak in her hands, and he ran out of the house. And understand it cost him something. He went from being the head, Chief servant in part of his house, to being in prison. It cost him but he ran, he fled from this kind of temptation. And brothers and sisters, we have to flee. And if somehow we get caught up and pull back in, get up Flee again. That’s what the Word of God is telling us. You think we have to understand is sometimes our children will say to us, maybe we say to our spouse or a spouse says to us, maybe we even say to ourselves, don’t you trust me?

Well, when it comes to sexual sin, we shouldn’t trust anyone. We shouldn’t even trust ourselves. Because it is such a strong temptation for people to fall into. You consider how many people had that said, I never thought that would happen to me. I never thought that would happen to me. Well, it’s because you allow yourself to be in a situation that you shouldn’t allow yourself to be in. Maybe we become as a nation as a society, to modern for our own good. It’s so important for us to stand in the Word of God, and to remove anything that would cause us to fall. Scripture says, if you’re and it doesn’t mean literally, it’s making a point if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. Your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. What the point it’s making is, is if you see something or you’re looking in a particular direction, or if someone or something and it causes you to sin, cut that off. If you put your hand just something that isn’t good for goodness caused me to sin, cut it off. Because we have to realize, Second Timothy 2:22 says, flee also youthful lusts, but pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Now, when it talks about youthful lust, it’s not just talking to young people, in our youth is when all these come to the surface. And it says we’re to flee from it. And that word in the Greek for flee means run as hard and as fast as you can, not just fast but as hard as you can. And it can be running real fast, but if it’s like that’s not Heart, you run as fast as you can, as hard as you can, and you get that pull, and you just break through it. Joseph fled out of the house and left his quote. Why? Because he knew the weakness of the flesh. And so he was fleeing from that temptation. So what I’m closing with is this, this was a tough portion of Scripture, for obvious reasons. I didn’t really get into reading all the details, it gives a lot of detail about the topics that I was discussing. But why is it there? Because it’s real, because it’s true. And so we have to be willing to do whatever is necessary to avoid these kinds of temptations in order to walk with our God. Because here’s the point. In the end, it’s all our salvation.

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. But I’ll tell you what, there is a I’m not crazy about bumper stickers. I think they’re corny. And if you have a bumper sticker, I don’t mean yours. But but one bumper sticker that I’ve always liked was this. Don’t be caught dead without Jesus. That’s true. And so when we read portions like this, God’s giving us warning signs, Warning Warning to bridges out Warning Warning. And we have to adhere to his warning signs and to find a different route. Father, we come before you and your shoe, his name in Jesus name and how we thank You, Father, for your word and for the salvation this free gift that we have. And I pray Lord, that portions like this rather than throwing us would encourage us to surrender more and more and more of our life to you. Father, I pray if there’s anyone here who has never been born again, this would be the day of their salvation. They would simply cry to you and say, God, forgive me, a sinner take over my life. And at that point, we have man touching eternity, we have the power of God coming into the card at the heart of that person who cries out to you, Lord. And Father, there are those of us here who are saved are born again, the boy, we’ve been falling into some deep ditches. I pray, Father that you’d fill those ditches in and give us the victory to either go around them or to jump over him. And Father, I thank you so much for the fact that you’re a patient God, a loving God. And we ask Lord, that your Holy Spirit would fall upon us to real True Holy Spirit revival wouldn’t be a program it wouldn’t be anything we do. But a True Holy Spirit revival would fall upon this little church I pray in Christ Jesus name, Amen. And amen. God bless you, my dear friends.
