Does it make a difference? Yes, it does.  The differences is darkness verses light, Heaven or hell, turmoil or peace.  You can apply this truth to being saved and/or the Christian life.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

So my question is this:  If Jesus overcame the world why are you engaged in a work that He has already performed?  Why not operate from the fact that He has already accomplished your Victory?

John 3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

Scripture reading: John 3: 13-21

John 3:13-21  And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

We think of the Christian Life as a changed life but it is really is an exchanged live:  Christ is our substitute living within !

He gave you His Life and that is the life spoken of in 1 John 3:9, Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. His seed( Holy Spirit) that remains in you is His Life(Eternal Life) that He has given you.

What I want us to see today is the difference between trying and trusting.  1 Cor 1:30  But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Seminars on individual Christian graces are serious lacking in fulfillment unless they present the truth of how God has provided for His creation. When I say seminars I speak of conferences on patience, love, success, how to be happy, etc.

How has God provided for us?  He has given only one gift to meet our need and that is His Son Christ Jesus..  Seminars that do not present Christ as the answer to every need of life leave you spinning your wheels, ever learning but never coming to the knowledge of the truth.

Gal 2:20  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.

God will not give me humility or patience or holiness or love as separate gifts of His grace.  He is not a retailer dispensing grace to us in packets .   by Watchman Nee, The Normal Christian Life

Our need is Christ and in Him are these individual needs met. Today we need courage; tomorrow we may need purity, the next we may need healing and all these are found in Christ. Gal 5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

He does not say fruits as separate items: there is just one fruit and that is the Holy Spirit. We all have the same Saviour living in us. So when joy is needed then the fruit of the Spirit is Joy and so on.

It does not matter what you lack: God has one answer for that need, Christ and He is sufficient for that need.  Every new need should cause us to discover more of Christ, Col 2:6-8  As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him : Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

That means you live in Him.  Christ my Life means a greater enjoyment of God’s supply. Col 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear,

He is in our stead and as we look to Him you will find that He accepts you , Matt 11:28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Isa 1:18 Come now , and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

If you need strength, He is your strength.  If you need love, He is your love.  If you need victory, He is your victory.  If you need healing, He is your healing.  If you need help, He is your help, If you need Salvation, He gives eternal life.

Trying or trusting (believing) which is it?  LORD I cannot do this so therefore I will no longer keep trying to do it.  I cannot accomplish this, so I take my hands off.

I will not act but depend on Him to act and then I can go the way He opens for me.  Believing the LORD is a very aggressive (active) way to live.  It is drawing life from Him

Heb 9:2, 28 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.

After death there awaits a judgment and there is much confusion regarding the time of each accountability. 
This message is not so much about the different judgments as it is about our present life, our daily life; and the necessary truths, fundamental truths, that must be established by us if we are to be ready when He appears!

So often I hear or am asked about such things as: Giving, Going to Church, Faithfulness, Serving, etc. These subjects are prefaced with words like what or how or I can’t or does the LORD expect me or does a person have to or can a person be a good Christian and not?

Let me say these things in themselves have no value if they are used to promote self or to make you appear righteous to God.  All four Going to Church, Giving, Faithfulness, Serving are tied to another truth in the Bible; yes tied even to Christ.  Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags ; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. We have no righteousness but that of Christ; the righteousness that God has made possible through Christ, 2 Cor 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

 

People want to single out one of these four things and use it as justification for an act of disobediences or an act of self righteousness.  Your life is not about these four things   Your life is about your receiving the message of Christ, 1 John 5: 10-13 , and your personal responsibility, accountability, unto Him, Heb 9:2,28 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.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

There is a vast difference in being an over comer verses trying to overcome in our self

As we have studied in the Seven Letters to the Seven Churches we are to be an over comer and rewards are promised to him that over cometh.  But nowhere is it said that we can overcome:  the truth is we can’t; we lack the power, the ability to overcome.  Jesus said, John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Ps 91:1-2  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

We are not told to overcome the world: Jesus overcame the world for us, but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

We are not told to crucify our self, The bible says, we are crucified with Christ, Gal 2:20 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.

We are never told to take our life or to do physical damage to our body, we are told:  that we are dead, Col 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God; Romans 6:6-11, Romans 8:10.

Jesus is our Victory: He Overcame the World for us

We are instructed by the Word of God to Look to Jesus, Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

 

“…We do not study to evangelize or pray to be successful.  We study to know Christ and we pray to commune with him.  That makes us successful.  As we study Christ, we live and show more of Christ.  As we come to know Him, we begin to have His mind.  As we have His mind, we lose sight of all the distractions and we focus on His will.  We then become willing to go anywhere, pay any price and suffer any trial.” Taken from G. Johnson

 
He Cares PDF Print E-mail

Jer 23:23-24 Am I a God at hand , saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?  Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

Jer 14:8-9 O the hope of Israel, the saviour thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night? Why shouldest thou be as a man astonied, as a mighty man that cannot save? yet thou, O LORD, art in the midst of us, and we are called by thy name; leave us not.

These verses describe Our God and Saviour who is never far from us, distance is no handicap to Him.  He is Omnipresent; He fills heaven and earth. He is aware of all that touches your life and He is the Saviour in time of trouble.

There are four (3) questions being ask here: Let me ask you a question as we consider this first question: Is He a Stranger to you?

I. Why should He be a stranger ?  In John1: 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. In salvation I believe so many think, that is it: there is no more.  When in fact, it is only the beginning, Col 2:6-9 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

A. Know Him in the power of His resurrection : He should not be a stranger as the Living Christ in your life. Phil 3:10 That I may know him , and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; Know Him as the living Christ in your daily life.

B.  Know Him in the trials of your  life.  See His hand in all that comes your way, 1 Peter 1:5-8 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen , ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Your faith will be tested; just as He tested Abraham He will test you.  There is nothing that can come into your life that He does not already know and He already knows the outcome.  You see He fills heaven and earth and there is no secret place for to hide.  Mankind can hide their secrets from others but not from the LORD.  When you are tested sing or say the song: “Follow Me I T I traveled on a lonely road and no one seemed to care.
The burden on my weary back had bowed me to despair;
I oft complained to Jesus how folks were treating me,
And then I heard Him say so tenderly,
"My feet were also weary, upon the Calvary road;
The cross became so heavy, I fell beneath the load,
Be faithful weary pilgrim the morning I can see,
Just lift your cross and follow close to me."

"I work so hard for Jesus" I often boast and say
"I've sacrificed a lot of things to walk the narrow way,
I gave up fame and fortune, I'm worth a lot to Thee"
And then I hear Him gently say to me,
"I left the throne of glory and counted it but loss,
My hands were nailed in anger upon a cruel cross,
But now we'll make the journey with your hand safe in mine,
So lift your cross and follow close to me.

Oh Jesus if I die upon a foreign field someday,
'Twould be no more than love demands, no less could I repay,
"No greater love hath mortal man than for a friend to die"
These are the words He gently spoke to me,
"If just a cup of water I place within your hand
Then just a cup of water is all that I demand.
But if by death to living they can Thy glory see,
I'll take my cross and follow close to Thee.
e”.

Be sure you take your cross and follow close to Him!

C.  Know Him in the Promises He has made,

1.  The promise of eternal life, John 6:47 Verily , verily , I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

2.  The promises of everlasting fellowship, 1 John 1:9-2:2 If we confess our sins , he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins , and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 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.

3. The promise that His presences can never be broken, Rom 8:31ff What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us , who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 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.

4.  The promise of His care I Peter 5:7

Does Jesus care when my heart is pained
Too deeply for mirth or song
As the burdens press and the cares distress
And the way grows weary and long?

Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares
His heart is touched with my grief
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary
I know my Savior cares

Does Jesus care when my way is dark
With a nameless dread and fear?
As the daylight fades into deep night shades
Does He care enough to be near?

Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares
His heart is touched with my grief
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary
I know my Savior cares

Does Jesus care when I've tried and failed
To resist some temptation strong
When for my deep grief there is no relief
Though my tears flow all the night long?

Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares
His heart is touched with my grief
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary
I know my Savior cares

Does Jesus care when I've said, "Goodbye"
To the dearest on earth to me
And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks
Is it aught to Him? Does He see?

Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares
His heart is touched with my grief
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary
I know my Savior cares

John 21:15-25

Text: 21:22

John 21:22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.

If you stop and think about these words they are possibly the most compelling words that could be spoken.

1.  These words come from Christ directly to Peter, Jesus saith unto him...

2.  The will of Christ for Peter was the important subject.  So often we are focused on the business of others.  You will not answer for the will of our LORD for someone else.  It is His Will for me that I must answer! If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

3.  Peter had the Will of The LORD explained to him, Follow thou me.

The Words were spoken by a living Christ, Rev 1:18  I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.  Christ was to soon leave as we see in Acts 1:1-8. The disciples at this time still did not understand the Church Age, Acts 1:4-6 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

These words have echoed through the years to hearing ears and believing hearts and they are just as powerful today as they were some two thousand years ago.

Before Christ was taken up in Acts 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. He found Peter and said, …Follow me, John 21:19.

Peter had previously denied the LORD three times, John18:25-27. I believe Luke 22:60-62 describes the feeling of PeterAnd Peter went out, and wept bitterly. He then went back to his trade of fishing.

Jesus came to Peter and the disciples and said: Come and dine.  But He singled out Peter. Why:  I believe Peter loved the LORD but was not sure the LORD could use him after his denial. John 21:15-17 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

Our LORD uses different words to bring the truth to us.  And a purpose of that is that our faith would be in Christ and in Him alone.  In this conversation with Peter that very truth is illustrated.

Christ said: “lovest thou me more than these?” He brought Peter back to Matthew 26:33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended . Christ was saying do you love me more than the other disciples?  And Christ used the word for a greater love than Peter could say he had: NT:25 agapao.

Peter responded Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. phileo (fil-eh'-o);  to be a friend to

Example:

Christ to Peter: agapao_me________

Peter to Christ:_ phileo___you_____________________

You see the tenderness of Christ for He never asks him again about:  more than these.

16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep

Christ to Peter: agapao__me_______________

Peter to Christ:_Phileo__you__________________

.

17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Christ to Peter:___Phileo__me Peter to Christ:_Phileo__you___________________

What is the difference in these two words of love. The word Peter used refers to a personal love such as used in John 11:36 to describe Jesus love for Lazarus, Behold how he loved him!

The word agapao is used for divine love such as the law required, Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.  Phileo is never used in a command for men to love God.  It is used in a warning as found in 1 Cor. 16:22 for not loving Christ.

John 13:23 Did Jesus love this disciple at the expense of the others?  In no way did He do that!  John simply received from Christ what is offered to whosoever will.

Illustration:  There is a little girl in my Church who will come to the platform, at the welcome time, and say “I love you” and I say “I love you too”.  Am I loving her at the expense of others? No, in no way. She is the only one who can receive because she is the only one to come

Personal love is expressed and found when you take up your cross and follow Him, Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

To be a disciple of Christ requires a personal love for Christ. The use of phileo in Peter's answers and the Lord's third question, conveys the thought of cherishing the Object above all else, (from Vine's Expository Dictionaryuse of phileo in Peter's answers and the Lord's third question, conveys the thought of cherishing the Object above all else, of manifesting an affection characterized by constancy, from the motive of the highest veneration.

(from Vine's Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words, Copyright © 1985, Thomas Nelson Publishers.)

Three times Peter denied Him and three times Peter affirmed he loved Christ. Three times Christ affirmed to Peter his mission:

21:15 “Feed my lambs” To give that which provides nourishment:  The Word of God, 1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

21:16 “Feed my sheep” To tend, to give care as a shepherd

21:17 “ Feed my sheep” little sheep a term of endearment as found  in 1 John 2:1 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:  John 21:17

"Little children." It is as if He should say, 'Now, Simon, the last speck of the cloud which overhung thee since that night of nights is dispelled: Henceforth thou art to Me and to My work as if no such scene had ever happened.'(from Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary, Electronic Database. Copyright © 1997, 2003 by Biblesoft, Inc. All rights reserved.).

He completely forgave Peter as He does when we confess our sin,  1 John 1:9

For the sinner that comes seeking His mercy and grace will always find a Saviour whose love will not let him go.  How many times do you find that word “come” as a invitation from the LORD, Isaiah 1:18, Matthew 11:28-30, Rev. 22:17.

The LORD uses different words for love and for good reason.  It is not the quantity of our love or of our faith  but rather who we love and who we believe.  So often you get caught up in a certain amount of love and faith.  But the LORD simply says: believe me or in the case of Peter He accepted his love.

And when Peter looked at the other disciple to know his work.  Christ said, “Follow Thou Me”.

Today, it is not about someone else’s faith or love or work but it is your faith, your love, your work.

When Peter first believe on Christ for eternal life he found a Saviour Who would not let him go.  Christ found him restored his fellowship.

John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Revelation 1:17-20

Something happens when you see the LORD!  There is something missing in todays so called christianty: that being the fear of the LORD.  The fear of the LORD if you have it would bring respect.  Jesus said if you have done unto my brethren you have done it unto me.  Therefore if you respect the LORD you respect the things of the LORD.  When you see the LORD you then have a different outlook regarding you life.

Isaiah saw the LORD: Isa 6:1-8 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me

Joshua saw the LORD Josh 5:10ff And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho.

And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day.

And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.

And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?

And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?

And the captain of the LORD's host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

Job saw the LORD, Job 42:5-13 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.

Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.

So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the LORD commanded them: the LORD also accepted Job.

And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.

So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.

He had also seven sons and three daughters.
