Proverbs 15:27  He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

 This world today has a motto of “more, more, more”.  As we have said before, the American Dream is an actual nightmare.  Most people are not working to provide but to become rich.  As we study this verse we soon find that it is an orange, flashing warning sign for us.  A greedy person is someone who doesn’t want all the land…just what joins him.  A greedy person is not someone who wants all the money…just what he can get his hands on.  A greedy person worships stuff, things, and the prosperity of monetary terms.  A greedy person’s home will be an edgy home.  A greedy home will always be an irritable home and a place of distant family relationship.  As our text quotes, “a greedy man troubleth his own house”.  Be careful that you do not become addicted to gain.  Gain is one of the worst addictions of this generation.  Gain is a habit that requires more and more substance in order to be satisfied.  It is an addiction that will completely consume a life and will destroy it over a period of a lifetime.  Friend, it is a slow, painful death.  Greed…the spiritual killer!  A greedy person will not be a spiritual person but a selfish person.  The last part of our verse means that a person that does not seek to be greedy and selfish will live and have a lively spiritual life.  Their home will be a warm place of comfort spiritually.  Their life will be filled with the joy of salvation.  Their pathway will be paved with contentment and grace.  Be very careful not to let yourself fall into the enemy’s trap that is baited with greed.  Greed is almost irresistible bait.  Seek God’s grace instead of the world’s greed.  Amen.

Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Yesterday we discussed being filled with the Spirit of God.  Today let’s look a little deeper into this subject.  Let’s discuss how to be filled with the Spirit of God.  Our verse tells us that if we live in the Spirit then we should walk in the Spirit.  If we are what we say we are then our lifestyle will prove it.  First, to be filled with the Holy Ghost we must be converted.  Only the saved by grace are indwelled with the Spirit of God.  Only the children of God have the presence of the Holy Ghost in them.  When conversion takes place it is then that the Spirit fills that person.  We received all of Him and He received all of us the moment we were saved.  So if we received all of Him then, then why are we not filled with Him all the time?  Well, we are!  But the sin in our lives pulls a shadow over His presence.  All of Him is in there, but we are hampering His stirring.  You see friend, being filled does not mean that we will receive special deliveries of Him until we are full.  He is already in us.  So that brings us to our second ingredient needed to be “filled with the Spirit”.  Commitment!  You see, He is already in us due to conversion, but when we commit ourselves to Him then it stirs up Him in us.  The more we commit the more that Spirit within us stirs up.  Therefore we are filled with the stirring of the Spirit of God.  An uncommitted life will dampen the moving power of the Spirit.  An uncommitted life will turn to carnal decisions.  We must decide to commit our entire life to Him and His will for our life.  So we see that we must be converted and we must be committed and thirdly we must be controlled.  When we commit our everything to Him then we have no problem allowing Him to control us.  A committed life will intently listen to the Spirit’s voice as holy instructions are continually given.  My friend there is nothing more powerful than clearly hearing the voice of God.  He is our eternal guide!  We must clean our lives up that we may be fully committed that we may be fully controlled by the voice of God.  And lastly, we must be conscious of who He is.  Many times we are guilty of referring to the Holy Ghost as an “it”.  But my dear friend He is not an it!  He is a person.  He is the person of God.  The Holy Ghost is the personality of God, the voice of God and the moving of God.  When God moves it is His Spirit moving.  When God speaks it is His Spirit speaking.  When God touches us it is His Spirit touching us.  When God hugs us it is that warm Holy Ghost wrapping us in the everlasting blanket of the love of God.  Hallelujah!  Oh how we have a great need to be “filled” with the Spirit of God!  Amen.

Ephesians 5:18 …be filled with the Spirit

Oh how desperately we need some Spirit filled christians in our day.  We need some Spirit filled church members.  We need some Spirit filled deacons.  We need some Spirit filled singers.  We need some Spirit filled elders.  We need some Spirit filled teenagers.  And we most definitely need some Spirit filled preachers.  In this cold, callous and worldly generation of christians we find very few Spirit filled.  The saved child of God receives the Spirit of God into their souls the moment salvation takes place.  It is a birth right privilege!  But many Christians do not take advantage of such an asset.  Most just continue limping through life allowing their flesh to make the daily decisions they are required to make.  My friend, the flesh never makes a decision in this life with the Spirit in mind.  The flesh is out for the flesh.  When we make fleshly decisions, they are not always detrimental decisions, but are they in God’s will?  You see, we can make a decision according to how the flesh sees it to be good, but is that God’s will for our life?  It may feel and look good to the flesh to marry a certain person, but is God pleased with this person being our spouse?  According to the flesh it may look and feel like a great idea to take another job, but what did the Spirit say?  You see, if we are not Spirit filled then we will automatically make a flesh-feel good decision.  This is why we are commanded to be “filled” with the Spirit.  If we are filled then there is no room for the flesh to insert its opinion.  I only quoted the last part of our verse to start off our study, but now that we are over in here let’s look at the first part of this verse.   “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit”.  Now why would the Lord insert this phrase about alcohol in the same verse with being filled with the Spirit?  Well as we all know, the scriptures teach strongly against drunkenness.  Alcohol affects every part of our body.  If we are filled with it, it then takes over in our thinking, actions, speech and appearance.  Alcohol is a strong substance that alters every function of our body.  Unfortunately, it causes us to think evil, act evil, talk evil and appear evil.  An old nick name for alcohol is “spirits”.  This is because it takes over the body and causes the person to do and speak like they would not normally when they are sober.  The nickname “spirits” is referring to evil spirits.  The Lord commands us to not be drunk with alcohol, but to be filled with THE SPIRIT instead.  You see, if we are filled with the Spirit then the Holy Ghost of God will begin to control how we think, how we act and how we talk and even how we appear.  And the good news is that it will all be Godly.  So how does a person live a Godly life?  Be filled with The Spirit of God!     Amen.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

The scriptures are clear that we must be saved in order to get to God.  We must be saved to get to Heaven.  We must be saved to miss Hell.  When a person dies their soul lives on for eternity.  Man is created in the image of God and by God.  What God breathes on lives forever.  This carnal flesh is the shell that is used to carry us while we are on earth.  Eventually this flesh will die.  When this flesh dies then the soul will continue on in one of two places, Heaven or Hell.  Heaven is the place of rest for the redeemed soul and Hell being judgment for those who reject Jesus Christ as Lord.  John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  Any person who denies the Lord Jesus as the Messiah, the Saviour, is in danger of Hell.  Dear friend, to miss Hell only happens through the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  In order to be saved a person has to come to the realization.  They must realize through the scripture and through conviction that they are hopelessly lost without grace salvation.  The Spirit of realization offers the opportunity of repentance.  We must repent of our sins and admit that only Jesus can rescue our doomed and depraved soul from eternal judgment.  This realization that brings on repentance will deliver rebirth.  The born again soul will experience new birth.  Spiritually the soul goes under regeneration.  Hallelujah!  2Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  We are a new creature through the rebirth of our soul.  1Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.  Now, there is yet another sin that damns the soul to Hell.  It is the sin of rejection.  We are not guaranteed many opportunities to be saved.  Once the soul has came to the realization that they need saving grace in order to miss Hell then that opportunity is not guaranteed to ever be offered again.  Every single soul has a deadline.  Once this deadline is crossed, that soul no longer has the hope of salvation.  We humans do not know where this deadline is.  It might be that one time a person comes under the conviction of the Holy Ghost.  It might be the death of the body.  We do not know where this deadline is, but we do know when it is crossed then the lost soul is doomed for Hell judgment.  Dear friend, if you are lost, beg God for salvation.  If you have passed by your day of conviction, beg for another today.  Salvation is serious business.  It is a matter of Heaven or Hell.  Don’t cross the deadline!  Don’t pass by the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.  He died on the cross supplying the supreme blood of atonement for our sins.  John 3:16 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. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 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.  Amen.

Revelation 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Today we continue our look at damnable sins mentioned in the Bible.  Here in Rev. 22 the Lord gives a stern warning to anyone who removes truth from the Word of God.  The consequence to this sin is that this person’s part in the book of life is removed.  My friend, the Lord is serious when it comes to the preservation of His Word.  He refers to the Bible as the book of prophecy.  The Word of God is no doubt the book of prophecy of the sovereign plan of God.  To “take away” means to remove or to cut away.  This sin is rampant in our day.  So much so that it has gotten hard to find a pure Bible.  In my lifetime, if you wanted to purchase a new Bible that was not taunted you simply had to go to the bookstore and find the Bible section and then find an authorized King James Bible, but not so now.  Sadly many printing companies have took the liberty to change the spelling of certain words in the King James Bible.  They have even changed the capital S in Spirit to a small s.  Normally the small s spirit is referring to man’s spirit.  The capital S Spirit is referring to the Holy Spirit.  Dear friend, it matters!  The Lord warns that taking away from God’s Word will get a person’s part taken from the book of Life.  Now, there are many verses that promise us that when a person is saved then their name is sealed in the Lamb’s Book of Life.  There are numerous scriptures that promise the saved child of God eternal security.  So what is the Lord referring to here?  He says that these guilty of taking away from the Word will get their “part” taken out of the book of life.  He did not say “name” but rather He said “part”.  This seems to be referring to their opportunity to be saved.  If the grace of God that saves will be offered to all men then that is their part or their opportunity.  So if a person is bold enough to deliberately take away from the Word then the Lord will boldly remove their part from the book of life.  If their part is removed from the book of life then their opportunity to be recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life is no longer offered.  There are certain boundaries of conviction that a truly saved child of God will not cross.  Evidently this is one of those lines, because it appears that those that deliberately take away from the Word are not yet saved.  What a dangerous sin to commit!  My friend, God is serious about the authenticity of His Word.  Amen.  

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
