My House Fellowship CHURCH
Right way and a wrong way in doing things Gods way.
[1Co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.]
This message will have no bearing in your life if that verse of scripture is not adhered to with all your heart.
[Luk 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.]
If you have never done this in your life, this message is not for you.
But if you have please listen. No matter what you are going through in life or about to go through this message will make all the difference in the world as to your outcome, whether it be good or bad.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed and totally inadequate?
Maybe some of you feel that way right now, or maybe just maybe you are about to be called to do something yourself,
or will go through something that you will feel totally inadequate to go through or do.
A few years back. [God called me to call this nation to repentance.]
When God calls you, you will know this is how you will know.
[Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.]
It will be a righteous cause not evil.
[Jer 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.]
It won't let you rest. There will be no peace in your life from the struggle of making a decision.
[Rev 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.]
God will open the doors and make you a way if you will go through them.]
What he asks of you might be so overwhelming you will question if it is from God or not.
I can remember feeling so small and helpless, how insignificant.
I felt like it had to be a mistake. I would sit and wonder for days how was someone like me to accomplish such a astronomical event.
One step at a time.
1. First I went into repentance in 2014.
2. I called our church to repentance in 2014.
3. I called this nation to repentance in 2015 with the help of this church.
4. In 2016 we had our nation day of repentance for this nation.
5. In the middle of that year I started calling New Mexico to repentance, in every city, town, village and community I could by the end of 2017.
6. At the end of 2017, I ended my walks, feeling I had accomplished my goal.
For the reason I believed God had given me by the end of 2017 to walk throughout this state and warn and pray over as many places as I could.
Fearing what was about to happen in 2018.
As of 12-31-2017 I wait for another door to be open, the problem I have is the waiting and not trying to make something happen.
Near the end of my walks, while driving and praying, God laid on my heart another endeavor on my heart.
Again overwhelmed and feeling total anxiety, I cried, Lord I can't do it.
Once I realized it was not going away, I prayed, Father if this is you then you will have to make it happen.
I laid down some guide lines, I told him he would have to meet certain conditions for me to know it was of him.
[I recall these are the words I spoke, Father you know what I have need of to accomplish this, don't let me try to make it happen, if you want me to do this then here is what you must do, in order for me to truly believe it is of you and not myself.]
Abraham and Sarah are prime examples of man trying to make things happen for God.
[Gen 17:15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.
Gen 17:16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
Gen 17:17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?
Gen 17:18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!
Gen 17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
Gen 17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.]
Abraham overwhelmed by what God was telling him would happen.
Gen 16:1 Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.
Gen 16:2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
Gen 16:3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.
Gen 16:4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
Gen 16:5 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between me and thee.
Gen 16:6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.
Gen 16:7 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
This is doing it the wrong way.
As I had said God if it is of you, then you open the doors, you provide the things needed to accomplish this.
For I know there is a right way and a wrong way of doing things, even doing them for the right reasons.
What God allowed me to accomplish was of no small task in the life of Janie and I.
We live on a very small income, that only all glory must be given to God.
But for God to allow me to drive and walk for over a year and a half across the state of New Mexico was a miracle, the coast was very expensive, money we sure did not and still don't have.
Yet God sent those who believed, those who could help into my life in small measures as well as in large.
Why? I was in the will of God. When you are in the will of God He will provide.
[Php 4:15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.
Php 4:16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
Php 4:17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.
Php 4:18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
Php 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.]
Doing things for God is an honor and a privilege, no matter how great or small.
But doing it the right way and not the wrong way is what counts.
One way lightens the load and the burden, the other makes it hard and difficult, [God do not let me interfere or try to make it happen.]
A few weeks have gone by and at times as I sit idle, waiting to see if it is of God or not, I begin to make ways for it to happen.
Yes I want to help God bring it about, just like Abraham and Sarah and so many others in the Bible who did make it happen but screwed up so many lives along the way.
This last week has been a lazy but very enjoyable week. Endless days and nights playing games on my new X-Box 1.
Not just with my son and daughter and grand kids but I alone just wasting precious time.
I think this is why I had become anxious about trying to help God along the way.
Yesterday my son and grandsons had played all day on the X-box well into the night, for reasons unknown to me but not to God I told my son we would need his truck to take Janie and I along with the boys to church.
Our little truck is getting to small for four adults. He had offered for us to use it many times before, I just never did.
About 11:30 that night Janie tells me I had not gone and started the heater at the church.
At first I thought it can wait until morning, then Janie tells me how cold it will be in the morning.
So off I go to warm up the church for Sunday service. Along the way, praying and asking God's forgiveness for being so lazy and childish playing a game so much.
Especially when it seemed I had been idly waiting for God to show me if what he laid on my heart to do was of Him or me.
I was annoyed by the music being played on the radio, I looked to see where to turn it off, there are so many lights and knobs on that dash I decided to forget it.
The next song played and it dawned on me it was gospel music so I began to listen.
Getting to the church I turned up the thermostat, I decided to wait long enough to make sure it came on.
Once it did I headed home, on the radio Dr. Charles Stanly began to preach, right off the bat I did not agree with the beginning of his message.
Yet I did not know how to turn him off so I continued to listen. His sermon was on [There is a right way and a wrong way then there is Gods way.]
It was good, I got home went to bed and woke up the next day thinking about that message.
Is that not what I told God in my prayer about a month ago?
Thinking how wasted a week went buy just goofing off and that God was probably upset with me for doing so.
It dawned on me how much God had to do to arrange a 30 minute drive to town and back, just to give me conformation.
A Christmas gift, time with my family, my son loaning me his truck, the time I went to warm up the church.
[Isa 43:18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Isa 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.]
[Rom 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Rom 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Rom 8:32 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?]
In conclusion, either way you choose will be successful, the only difference is, one way will make it more difficult and hard, the other will make it less difficult and hard. But one thing will be for certain, [Isa 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.]
