SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON ANY GIVEN SUNDAY FROM THE CHURCH OF ROXBORO TO THE PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD!!!

THE WICKED BLIND WORLD WE LIVE IN!

THROUGH IT ALL, GOD ONLY SEE TWO THINGS!

As we consider all the things we see today, seeking to remember that there is only one true and living God, can we do anything to cause people to open their blinded spiritual eyes that salvation might be there’s?

In the world we live in there’s always been a spiritual battle between evil and righteous. I’ve now lived on this earth for seventy-one years and have seen a lot of changes in the time I’ve lived here. Whether we can see it as good or bad might be as seen through the eyes of any given group of people. However, in reality the whole process has caused a downward spiritual spiral whether we choose to see it or not.

So, let’s go back in time and see what we can find. As we look at some of these things, you might not like what I have to say but, at least consider the thoughts before you judge me to be right or wrong. First of all, I believe it has all to do with the coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of a one world order. In that one world order there will be no righteousness. The truth will be as defined by Satan himself and, if you defy that truth, you will die!

Let’s look at two things that began to happen some sixty years ago. If you remember I said: God only sees two things as far as this is concerned. As God looks down upon this earth, he either see people that are born-again or, people that are lost. To him, there’s no such thing as male or female in the sense of salvation, nor is there black or white, red or yellow. As I make that statement; as we live upon this earth, there are spiritual positions we all have within the very mindset of God.

My whole reason for writing this is to speak to the people of this world. Is this world all that you have? As stated, any person that has been born-again is not of this world. If we say we are born-again and, at the same time make the affairs of this world our main focus then we are not where God the Father would have us be.

When we make the cares and causes of this world our main focus, we then void the very reason we say we are born-again. Look at these verses:

1 Peter 2:9

BUT YE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, AN HOLY NATION, A PECULIAR PEOPLE; THAT YE SHOULD SHEW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT: (10) WHICH IN TIME PAST WERE NOT A PEOPLE, BUT ARE NOW THE PEOPLE OF GOD: WHICH HAD NOT OBTAINED MERCY, BUT NOW HAVE OBTAINED MERCY.

As we move forward from here, look at this verse:

John 18:37

PILATE THEREFORE SAID UNTO HIM, ART THOU A KING THEN? THOU SAYEST THAT I AM A KING. TO THIS END WAS I BORN, AND FOR THIS CAUSE CAME I INTO THIS WORLD, THAT I SHOULD BEAR WITNESS UNTO THE TRUTH. EVERY ONE THAT IS OF THE TRUTH HEARETH MY VIOCE.

What’s the difference in Jesus Christ and you and I? I confess, when I was born in the flesh, I was of this world. However, when I was born-again that birth is not of this world. Where Jesus Christ was born in the flesh to fulfill a responsibility, as born-again believers, we are now born with the very same responsibility.

Was Jesus a politician? Did he seek the riches of this world? Did he seek to be the equal to any other person or place himself above any other person? It appears that there are many people that say they are born-again. At the same time, it appears their main desire is to involve themselves with the cares of this world. According to (1 Peter 2) we were not even a people, but we became a people in Jesus Christ.

Look at this world! There are women seeking to be equal to men. There ate women seeking to be men and, men seeking to be women. There are blacks fighting against both blacks and whites. There are whites fighting against both blacks and whites. There are nations against nations, states against states, religions against religions, denominations against denominations. Shall I go on?

As we consider these things; it appears that we are trying our best to not appear to be racist, we are seeking to make it appear that women are equal to men in every respect. We paint pictures with TV and radio, with words we say to make people think things whether it’s real or not. I want you to consider this:

Proverbs 23:7

FOR AS HE THINKETH IN HIS HEART, SO IS HE: EAT AND DRINK, SAITH HE TO THEE; BUT HIS HEART IS NOT WITH THEE.

We become even greater sinners because of the lies we live. I mentioned looking back fifty or sixty years. We went through great rebellion. A lot of the things that were being fought for might have been needed to bring about change in this world. We still hear about equal rights for women, equal rights for blacks. We even seen it necessary about that time to do away with the very God we said we served. I wonder why we did that? Was it because some of the stands we took were directly related to the God we served? If we continued to walk in his light, we couldn’t bring about the changes necessary?

Often when we set out to bring about certain changes such as being equal, the people that think they are being mistreated are never satisfied, no matter how hard we try or, how equal we might become!

When we consider the only two things in this whole world that God sees, it brings into focus why we see such chaos in our world today. As stated, God the Father sees you as either born-again or still lost and on your road to hell. There is no middle ground! It doesn’t matter what color you are, whether you are male or female. what nation you belong to or, what you might think of yourself.

The part of any person that keeps them from being content is the very God consciousness that lives within every person. I argue and, will continue to say that there is no such thing as an atheist. That word like many words are words that this world devised to define a person that lies about what they already know within their own selves. For instance, the word transexual. There is no such thing. That word was made up to define a person that desires to be something other than what God made them to be! Within themselves, they know! The very God consciousness within them tells them what and who they are.

May I share something with you? I’m not a fool, I realize that the sexual orientation of any individual can vary just as the very color of our skin. There are men and women that are born with far more sexual drive toward to opposite sex than normal and, there are those born with a sexual drive toward the same sex. There are people born with very dark skin all the way to very light skin. That my friend is just the way it is in this sin-cursed world. We don’t even have to stop there, we can even mention a desire to steal, lie, murder, worship a false god, love of money, you name it, the world is completely filled with sin-cursed people of all colors, creeds and sexual orientation. Actually, there is no difference in any of us other that the choices we make. We are all sin-cursed sinners. The only difference is what we are willing to yield ourselves to.

Today we see that fact more than any time in history as we know it. Most of it came about because of the breakdown of the family the sixties. More than likely it started long before that time but, the fact that we as a nation turned our backs on God along that time truly advanced the wickedness in our society.

It just so happens that I, as an individual made a choice many years ago not to involve myself with the affairs of this world. I am not of this world, I’m born-again and am an ambassador for Jesus Christ. When it comes to being a witness, I don’t see male or female, black, white or any other color. At the same time, I see every person as my equal. The ground is now and has always been level at the foot of the Cross of Calvary. Another point that must be made is that since the love of God is shed abroad in the heart of every born-again believer it becomes impossible to know hate for any person.

If you are white and harbor hate in your heart for any person that is black, then the love of God is not in you! If you are black and harbor hate in your heart for any white person, the love of God is not in you! In a political sense, if you have the ability to hate any member of any other party, the love of God is not in you!

Right now, we hear a lot about (BLACK LIVES MATTER) (ALL LIVES MATTER) and so on it goes. We even have a organization in the town in which I live that is called (MY LIFE MATTERS). All those things and I could mention more is all of this world, God has nothing to do with it. The organization in our town is said to be (Christ centered). However, even Jesus Christ himself warned us against things being done in his name.

Before we move on let’s look at a couple of scriptures:

1 John 4:20

IF A MAN SAY, I LOVE GOD, AND HATETH HIS BROTHER, HE IS A LIAR: FOR HE THAT LOVETH NOT HIS BROTHER WHOM HE HATH SEEN, HOW CAN HE LOVE GOD WHOM HE HATH NOT SEEN?

I mentioned that a little while ago.

Matthew 7:22-23

MANY WILL SAY TO ME IN THAT DAY, LORD, LORD, HAVE WE NOT PROPHESIED IN THY NAME? AND IN THY NAME HAVE CAST OUT DEVILS? AND IN THY NAME DONE MANY WONDERFUL WORKS? (23) AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.

I’m a member of the Church of Roxboro. I’m seeking to get the people of this world to understand this fact. There are those that are influencing your life, directing you to see certain things about your own life that are leading you in the complete wrong direction! The world we live in is trying its best to get people to except homosexuals, transgenders as their equal. They are trying to get the people that live these lifestyles to fir in as a normal group of people in our communities. If, at some point this world, your town, your community does look at this lifestyle as normal then, so be it. However, if you think God has changed one thing about how he views those lifestyles, you are badly deceived by the very people that are leading you!

Let’s make an argument here. Let’s just assume a homosexual is born like they are. Well, guess what? I was born just like I was born as well. I, like every other person on this earth had to come to the resolve within myself that God was not pleased with me (the way I was born)! Look at this verse:

Romans 3:11-13

AS IT IS WRITTEN, THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO NOT ONE: (11) THERE IS NONE THAT UNDERSTANDETH, THERE IS NONE THAT SEEKETH AFTER GOD. (12) THEY ARE ALL GONE OUT OF THE WAY, THEY ARE TOGETHER BECOME UNPROFITABLE; THERE IS NONE THAT DOETH GOOD, NO, NOT ONE. (13) THEIR THROAT IS AN OPEN SEPULCHRE; WITH THEIR TONGUES THEY HAVE USED DECIET; THE POISON OF ASPS IS UNDER THEIR LIPS:

WE need to understand this fact! There’s not but one hell. I am equal to every sinner that ever lived. Also, any sinner, no matter what sin it is, if they die as a part of this world will burn in the very same hell with every other sinner!

I want you to consider this, if you happen to be white. if you teach your children, they are special simply because they are white; all you are doing is lining them up with the linage of this world and, and possibly sending them to the very same hell that the rest of this world will go to! If you happen to be born black and you’re teaching your children that (black lives matter), making that the focus of your home, Church, school and community it’s very possible that you are setting them up to spend a lifetime in a place called hell, part from the very grace that is offered freely by Jesus Christ our Lord.

We’ve come to the place in our world that we try to make Jesus Christ a part of all of our little petty issues we see in this world. Even our Churches become magnets for the things of this world.

The point I’m trying my best to make is this. No matter who you are, you are born as a member of this world. That fact must change because being a member of this world alone brings about destruction in hell for eternity! I’m not speaking to you as a member of this world. I was a member of this world but, that citizenship changed the very moment I asked Jesus Christ to be my Savior! I now have citizenship in a place we call heaven. The only reason I’m still hear is to share the truth, the Gospel of Jesus Christ with every member of this world.

What part of this world are you caught up in? Please consider what I’m saying. Let’s say you are a member of a local Church that takes meals to senior citizens each week, you call that your ministry. However, you take the meals to those people every week, feeding their physical bodies but never one time tell them about Jesus Christ, never asked them if they are born-again, you have no passion for their soul. If you say you are born-again, you have missed the very calling God the father has placed on every one of his children!

Is it important to feed the poor? Sure, it is however, as citizens of heaven, ambassadors of Jesus Christ there is a much higher calling than just looking after the flesh of men, we must realize that spiritual fact!

Look at these verses in closing:

2 Peter 1:10-11

WHEREFORE THE RATHER, BRETHREN, GIVE DILIGENCE TO MAKE YOUR CALLING AND ELECTION SURE; FOR IF YE DO THESE THINGS, YE SHALL NEVER FALL: (11) FOR SO AN ENTRANCE SHALL BE MINISTERED UNTO YOU ABUNDANTLY INTO THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST.

I’m sure that there are well meaning parents, teachers, pastors, civic leaders and so on all across this country that are seeking to truly help people in some small way. However, the pit of hell is filled with people with good intentions! It also isn’t partial in any group of people, color or creed. If you die in ignorance and end up in hell then, hell is filled with people that listened to what someone else taught them in ignorance.

Yor, as an individual, black, white, male female, Church member. Check your heavenly status! Make (YOUR) calling and election sure. Don’t let even the most passionate person, such as I stop you from knowing truth by acknowledging Jesus Christ and becoming a citizen of the world he is from!

John 3:7

MARVEL NOT THAT I SAID UNTO THEE, YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN.

No if’s and’s or but’s about it. You cannot remain a citizen of this world, fight for the things of this world and be what God desires for you to be. Ye must be born again. Become a citizen of the world of Jesus Christ!
