Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.  2 Thessalonians 2:1-2

Psalm 12:1   Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.


Christians are falling to the wayside by the droves.  It seems that we get the alarming news each week of another family or another Brother or Sister in Christ that has stepped out of the way of the Lord.  So many of the saved are bending to the pressure of the last days.  So many are stepping back and taking the way of less resistence.  No doubt, we are experiencing the repercussions of the days leading up to the doorsteps of destruction.  Our country that used to trust in God has turned her back on the Lord and followed the footsteps of Sodom and Gomorrah.  She has gone in the way of Cora.  What a shame it is to see America going down in the destruction of sin.  Immorality and crookedness lurks in her streets and is creeping into the homes of our families.  As born again Christians, we must not let this sin to sway us from following the will of God.  We must not allow the draw of sin to cause us to take our eyes off the prize.  As the blood bought children of God we will escape the Great Tribulation.  Hallelujah! But until then we will no doubt have to endure some suffering for the cause of Christ.  He never said that this walk would be a walk of fun in the park.  But He did say that we would be a sheep among wolves.  He did say that the evil would seek to kill us.  My saved friends, we must make our mind up to stand up for what is right.  We must stick with the truths of the Word of God.  Men, stand firm on the foundation of the Word of God, go ye in the old paths, wherein is the good way.  Ladies, direct your eyes upon the homeland and get them off the sin and trip hazards of this world.  Men, make your mind up that you will not quit on God.  Ladies, make your mind up that you are going to stand by your man till death and be his helpmate and be the heartbeat of the home.  Anybody can quit, but it takes a child of God with great faithful determination to go on for the prize.  I am afraid there are many, many Christians that will stand before the Lord at the great gathering of Saints with their head hung low in shame because they quit, because they laid down the torch, because they let some measly trial cause them to step out of order.  Listen Brothers and Sisters, God knows where you are.  He knows what you are.  He knows what you don’t know.  God has a plan that will eventually transform into breath taking glory right before your eyes.  But if you quit or step out of your place then you will suffer much loss.  Our works will eventually be tried by fire.  All the carnality that we participated in will go up in smoke, but that that was true and committed for the cause of Christ will stand unharmed and will be used as crowns to cast at the feet of Jesus.  Will you have anything left?  To be frank my friends, we need to stop our pitiful whining and get with the plan!  This thing ain’t about you…it is all about Him and His sovereign plan.  Will it hurt, YES!  Will it sometimes be uncomfortable, YES!  Christians, we must make our mind up now that we are not going to quit.  If you wait till things get rough without your mind made up then you will become a quitter statistic.  On the other hand, it is not all doom and gloom.  This Christian life is not all attacks, storms and trials.  There is much glory to enjoy.  There are still some places we can go to for help in true Holy Ghost worship.  There are still some soldiers that are staying in the way of Christ.  And one of the most rewarding things as a child of God in these days is the presence of the Spirit of God within us.  He gives us daily manna needed to keep our strength.  This manna may come in the form of His presence sweeping across our heart in prayer, or maybe in praise, or maybe even as we fellowship with another Brother or Sister in Christ.  Living for Jesus really is The Life.  It has much joy to behold.  Come on, let’s go with God!  It will be worth it all real soon.  Amen.

Psalm 62:12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.


His mercy endureth forever.  Our God is a God of mercy and graciousness.  This particular verse here in the Psalms is one of those verses that make us gasp a bit.  We are reminded that He is the one in charge of the distribution of this great mercy.  My friend, our life without it is pure misery.  As a saved child of God we have responsibility.  We have responsibility in service to our merciful Lord.  Many times we find ourselves so caught up in the worldly things of our life that we neglect the vital spiritual things.  Our verse for today reminds us that our slothfulness will not be overlooked by the Lord.  He makes it very clear that He issues mercy to us according to the faithfulness of our service.  Oh me!  “Mercy” here means the favor of God.  “Renderest” means to give safety to, to be friendly to, to give reward to, to give fullness to, and to give peace to.  Wow!  But the most stunning part of the meaning is this; all this is given in mind, body or estate.  In other words these amazing blessings are given in physical form…in mental form…and in spiritual form.  My, my, my dear friend this is like someone giving a breathtaking gift to us.  The Lord said if we would just fulfill our responsibility in serving Him then we will be showered with unbelievable favor.  Dear friend, it does not pay to take the cheap route.  The short cut will cause us to come up short.  It does not pay to react in rebellion.  It does not pay to engulf ourselves in this carnal world so much that it causes us to not fulfill our responsibility to our Lord.  Oh friend, don’t be slothful.  It will come home to haunt you.  Determine to be faithful and give thanksgiving unto the Lord for His great grace He has showed in your life.  He gives mercy according to our work.  Wow.  Are you coming up short on mercy because of your slothfulness in work?

Psalms 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.


Burdens!  We all have burdens.  A burden is a weight that is carried.  We have physical burdens which come through ailments to our body or circumstances that affect our body, we have mental burdens that affect us through our mind and we have spiritual burdens that affect us in our spiritual life.  Either type burden is a heavy load that can rarely be carried alone.  Sometimes we have other people that can help us bear our load.  Some burdens we must carry without intervention from other people.  But all burdens must have the input of the Lord.  In our verse today we have the use of certain words that really open up a new meaning to these burdens.  He says to “cast” our burdens upon the Lord.  That word “cast” means to throw down before Him.  How many times have we attempted to carry the burden to Him in surrendering prayer, but we snatched it up and carried it with us when the praying was over?  Oh my friends cast thy burdens upon the Lord and leave them there.  Our word “burden” here has a powerful meaning.  It means; what is given by Providence.  Wow!  Those heavy loads were given or allowed by the Lord Himself.  Now why would He do that?  He is an all powerful God that knows all.  These burdens are to allow us to lean on Him and to depend upon Him and His providence.  The Psalmist says it well; Ps 100:3-5 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.  Amen!  He shall sustain us with His almighty providence.  And notice that if we are righteous in our living then He will see to it that we do not slide or slip.  What an encouragement!  But notice now that he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.  That word “righteous” changes the whole thing.  We cannot expect God to relieve our burden if we are not living in His will.  Remember the meaning of our word burden??  It means; what is given by Providence.  How many times do we suffer from the weight of a burden that we provided for our self?  If He provides the burden in our living in His will then we can expect relief, but if we brought on the burden due to our backslidden condition then we can expect to tote the load for a while.  Wow, what a word we have discovered from this verse.  Many of us are pulling, hauling and dragging burdens from our unrighteous living.  We must strive to live righteous and holy lives in His will.  Then we will have a burden of a different kind.  We will have the burdens He provided.  And He will tote the load that He provided. Are you afflicted by a self-provided burden or one that the Lord provided?  We must live in His will.  Amen.

John 6:69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.


I count myself as a believer.  I am a believer in the all powerful, sovereign God of the universe.  I am a believer in the salvation through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Amen!  Our verse here is the response of Peter to Jesus when most of the followers had just walked off and ceased to follow Christ any further.  We are living in a day to where many are walking out on the faith.  Here in the scriptures where we draw our verse from today is an instance to where the teachings of Jesus became stiff and stern therefore many could no longer take the preaching and the pressure of following the Lord.  You see, when someone who claims to be a believer just walks away and departs from the way then they are showing their true colors.  They are announcing that they don’t have what it takes to go the real way and they don’t have the firm foundation needed when times get hard and tuff.  Many times the reason for, so called, believers leaving the faith is because they are so self-centered.  My friend, it’s not about you and it’s not about me.  It is about Christ!  Some walk away from the faith because they are self- righteous.  If you hang around where Jesus is for very long then the preaching will touch you.  The Word of God is like a two edged sword.  It divides the ungodly from the godly.  So, our verse says; we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.  We are believers because of the eternal manual.  We have God’s authoritative Word as a firm foundation of belief.  The Word said it and I believe it!  His Word is preserved for all generations.  Next, we believe because of the evidence of His miracles.  Our lives are packed full of His miraculous works!  Lastly, we are believers because He is the everlasting Messiah.  We are “sure” that He is the Christ.  “The Christ” means that He is the anointed one of God.  There are many anointed men of God, but He is THE anointed SON of God.  He is the Savior of Sinners.  Notice our verse refers to Him as the Son of the “living” God.  He lives, He lives…you ask me how I know He lives…He lives within my heart!!!  Hallelujah!  You see, by Him being the “living” God and by Him living in my heart I cannot deny that He is the Christ.  He lives within the soul of the true believer in the form of the Holy Ghost.  Amen and Hallelujah!  He lives within my heart therefore I AM a true believer.  Can you count yourself as a believer?  Will you stick with the truth even when it gets tuff and the pressure is on?  If you are a true believer you will!  Amen.

2Thessalonians 2:16  Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.


Our verses today are taken from the ending of 2Thess. chapter 2.  As we have preached from this chapter lately, these verses encourage us through truth as we are reminded of the iniquity that will darken these last days on earth.  At the same time this chapter encourages the saint of God to press on in the truth that we already know.  We copied both verses 16 and 17 in our text for today so that our subject verse would be clear.  Verse 17 stirs us in peace as it reminds us that our true consolation is of the Lord.  As it is easy to become disturbed among so much last day iniquity, we can receive the peace we need to press on.  This peace is delivered to us through the presence of the Spirit in many ways, but our verse focuses on just two of these.  Notice these two things with me.   We can be stablished or in other words fixed in heart through “word and work”.  “Word” here means any spoken word of The Word.  If you are a saved saint of God, any spoken word of the True Word will stir you spiritually.  This could be by reading and studying the Word, by listening to sound preaching of the Word, or even a conversation about the Word with a brother or sister in Christ.  Take time today to hear or talk about the Word.  He also mentions being encouraged by “work”.  This is referring to work in the Lord.  The Lord has an agenda for us each day.  Sadly, many of us end the day not having fulfilled this God ordained agenda.  The Lord has lined up people that He will put in our path and He will open opportunities for us to be a blessing in the Lord through these situations.  He has circumstances that will be in our path that can be used to promote His glory and possibly even His gospel.  But sadly, we are so busy with the temporary things of life that we walk right by the eternal things of life.  Fulfilling our “work” of the Lord is a very peace giving and encouraging thing.  So as we go through today let’s slow down enough to recognize the opportunities right before us.  “Word” and “Work” of the Lord brings with them peace and consolation that will “stablish” our hearts in the will of the Lord.  Amen and Amen.  

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