THE DEVIL’S DECEPTION – Sin is not serious

I. The devil blinds the minds of people to the terrible
consequences of sin and to their need of salvation.

From the beginning of human history Satan has sought to
create the impression that sin is not serious. In the Garden of Eden the
serpent said to the first couple, “You will not surely die” (Gen. 3:4 NIV).
Satan continues to use the big lie concerning sin, and people fall for it hook,
line, and sinker. It is commonly believed that one can sin and escape
suffering. Some people believe that one can sow wild oats in youth and never
reap a harvest. Some believe that they can play with sin and still win the game
of life. Many believe that they can be social drinkers and escape alcoholism.
Some believe they can step from morality into immorality without experiencing
hurt. With all of the cunning of hell, Satan encourages people
to treat sin lightly.

THERE IS NO POWER WITHOUT HOLINESS

There is no shortcut to the powr of God.  There is no power without holiness.   (Taken from notes from Francis Frangipane)

ALL FLESH SHALL SEE THE SALVATION OF GOD! Luke 3:3-6

THE END TIME REVIVAL – Luke 3:3-6

All flesh shall see the salvation of the Lord

4As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight  5Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; 6And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

  • Every valley of disappointment, fear, disillusionment shall be filled
  • Every mountain and hill shall be brought low—all arrogance and pride of man will be brought down
  • And the crooked places shall be made straight— people will walk in bible holiness.  100% holiness.  You wouldn’t go to the store and look at a label on water that said 98% pure water, and 2% sewer water, and buy that water.   It is 100 %holiness required!…the crooked places shall be made straight.   This speaks of sin…..
  • And the rough places made smooth —God’s holy fire will wash us clean, the next end time revival will be God’s humble people… person to person, seeing the lost saved,  house to house, family to family—pastors won’t have to beg people to pray, and be at church….they will know they need to be refreshed, recalibrated in the house of God by the teaching of the Word—-to make them—more effective —-to go out.  “GO”—

It is not a man, it is not an organization….. “all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”  Revival from heaven is coming.  It won’t be at some conference somewhere, in some church or some auditorium, or denomination,  and there will be no glory given to man.

All flesh….shall….see….the salvation…of God.  This is the revival we are praying for.
Some people think the glory was invented by some new evangelist in the last few years.  Glory originated with God.  Ex 33:18 Moses said “show me your glory Lord.”….. yes the Lord had glory back then…..amazing!

The glory shows up every time…. I look to Jesus….Some people say, I don’t like the services at that church  because they are dead..  I got news for you… your dead.

Get back to looking at Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith –Hebrews 12:2  and get your eyes off of man.  Get back to prayer and knowing the Word, and meditating in it day and night, and praying faith filled prayers.

You shall be my witnesses….Get back to basics -witnessing to your neighbours , family and friends about the good things God is doing in your life.  You are my witnesses! Acts 1:8

DO YOU KNOW YOUR ENEMY –

1 John  3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning.  For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Whosoever is born of God doth not committ sin. for his seed remaineth  in him, and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

GETTING SAVED —is the most important thing you can do, have you given your life to Jesus.  Are you totally surrendered or are you looking for ways to continue an ungodly lifestyle, and still “think” your born again.
