 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.  Matthew 6:24

1Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

Prayer is a privilege that we must not take for granted.  Paul mentions in 1Thessalonians that we must be in continual prayer.  This means we must be in tune and in touch with the Lord at all times.  This connection through prayer allows us to be spiritually discerning in the situations of life.  The old saying is that we must be at all times “prayed up”.  In other words, have your praying done that you may instantly pray.  We know not what an hour may bring.  Things may be good right this moment but we have no idea what’s coming our way.  We must be prayed up.  Notice our verse encourages us to pray lifting up holy hands.  Holy hands are innocent and clean hands.  This is a representation of a person who can lift their hands up in praise to the Lord with no shame of sin.  We must keep our slate clean that we may offer the Lord praise in prayer.  Most of the situations that we face, we cannot control.  But we can stay spiritually clean during it.  No matter what we face today we must be able to lift our hands in praise unto the Lord.  Notice he mentions a couple of ways we can keep our hands in praising order.  Our prayer praise must be without wrath and doubting.  Wrath means indignation.  It is almost impossible for our flesh to steer clear of vengeance when it has been offended, but spiritually we can be humbled and turn our face toward the Lord, lifting holy hands and have faith that He will take care of the situation.  I must remind us that our God is faithful and sovereign.  Yes, our flesh wants to do some damage but we must give it to the Lord.  He mentions we must offer our prayers without doubting.  This word means to discuss in worry.  So we are commanded in our verse to pray to the Lord lifting our holy hands in praise placing our faith in the Lord that He will intervene on our behalf.  It would do all of us some good to find somewhere private today and lift holy hands in prayer unto the Lord.  He is faithful!  He longs to fellowship with His saints in prayer.  Amen.

Galatians 2:4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:   

Our verse is one written by Paul as he and Barnabas and Titus traveled and preached.  He had faced conflict among those that claimed to be saved.  These “false brethren” were jealous and spiteful.  These were actually being used as tools of the devil to irritate these three men of God.  The irritation was in hope that this conflict would cause them to back off a bit.  Paul’s preaching was powerful and effective because he was anointed of the Lord.  The enemy will tolerate preaching but he will not tolerate anointed preaching.  The preached Word with a touch will change our lives as it was changing lives here in Paul’s day.  Preaching with a touch will have a tug in it.  Spirit anointed preaching comes with the convicting power of the Holy Ghost of God.  Many times these irritators are upset and aggravated because the preaching has brought them under conviction.  I have personally witnessed these irritators under conviction and they have not even attended the services.  They are under conviction because of the anointing that is on the people that are actually sitting under the preaching.  Paul is bold about this issue.  He says these people who are against the powerful moving of God are “false brethren”.  They are lost.  When we are saved the Spirit of God lives within us.  If He lives within us then He will agree with His own work!  Maybe the person is not used to being around the powerful moving of the Spirit, but if they are saved they will not condemn it.  If a person avidly and continually condemns the workings of God then that is a true sign that they are lost.  In our verse Paul makes mention of the real issue.  It is right in the middle of our verse.  It is “liberty”.  Irritators are aggravated at our freedom.  Liberty means freedom.  In Christ we have freedom to serve the Lord as His Spirit leads us.  And I must say this leading will usually go against the grain of the worldly system.  Freedom allows us to worship as He leads us according to the truths of His written Word.  This really causes an irritation among the false brethren.  You see, true biblical and spiritual worship has strong convicting power.  Paul mentions here that these that are irritated at the power of God are interested in bringing us under bondage.  In other words, we are making them uncomfortable and they wish to calm us down and possibly even shut us down.  To put it plainly, they are under conviction.  Spiritual conviction causes great irritation of the flesh.  Press on Christian!  Press on in the wonderful and powerful liberty of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Regardless of the nagging irritators, press onward in the glory of the Lord. Amen.

Revelation 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

Our verse for today comes from the beginning of the book of Revelation where the writer, John, is being introduced.  The Lord Jesus miraculously revealed this powerful book to John while he was in exile on the isle of Patmos.  According to the explanation by John himself, he was in exile “for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ”.  In other words the people had took all the powerful preaching they could stand and they had John arrested and his punishment was for him to be dropped off on an island and left alone.  But what the world does not know is that we are never alone!  We are seeing a society today that is the same way about preaching.  Even half the church cannot take preaching anymore.  Folks get angry and vengeful when the powerful Word condemns their sin.  They want to hear a soft-spoken word of caress and agreement with their sinful flesh.  2Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.  John finds himself on Patmos for simply preaching the Word.  But praise God, the Lord uses our storms as grounds for growing in grace and for revealing His sovereign will to us.  He does this exact thing with John.  The Lord Jesus commands John to write down what He was shown.  I am sure John’s mind was overwhelmed.  The point of our word this morning comes from the beginning of John’s writings in Revelation.  He makes it clear that no one or nothing can take away what is in him.  The Lord Jesus abides in his soul and he is overwhelmed at the power of God’s presence that stirs within himself.  Notice his own words of testimony.  He said “I bare record of the word of God”.  In other words, he has proof that the Word of God is the powerful truth.  He makes it clear he bares record of his testimony of Jesus Christ.  He has powerful proof within his soul of what the Lord Jesus has done to him and for him.  Oh dear friend, as a child of God we too have testimony of what the Lord Jesus has done for us and to us.  Amen!  And then John says, “Let me tell you what I saw”.  Ole John is overwhelmed and carried away at the things the Lord has shown him.  What about you?  Does your life prove what He has shown you?  Does your witness prove His power to save and to keep the soul?  What about all those miracles of powerful providence He has performed in your life!  What about all those times of manifestation He has opened right before your eyes!  Oh my dear friend, I am beginning to feel overwhelmed by just thinking on these things.  Glory Hallelujah!  It is wonderful and powerful to be a child of God.  Let your light so shine before men today.  Amen.

1John 1:1  That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

Over my years of ministry I have been asked the question many times by Christians, “how do I share my testimony with a lost person?”.  My answer is always the same.  Tell them what He did for you, to you and in you.  Our testimony of salvation is the story of the transformation He made in our life.  These 3 verses here in 1John reveals these directions.  Because of the salvation given of the Lord Jesus we have seen things that the lost flesh cannot see.  We have looked upon the mind boggling presence of the manifestations of God.  We have spiritually experienced Calvary and it’s transforming, redeeming power.  We share our testimony with others that the Lord may use the truth of our redemption to touch the heart of a sinner and draw them to repentance also.  Dear friend, witnessing to a sinner is not rocket science.  We simply share what happen to us personally.  Now, if nothing has happen to you then you have nothing to share.  Some folks testimony will be more dramatic than others, especially if it is of a person who was saved out of a life of filth and sin.  Then a testimony of a church kid will simply be the power of that heaviness of conviction that rested upon them.  So the truth of our testimony is not some made up drama, but rather it is simply the story of His drawing power upon us personally.  Whether He reached into the meth house and got you or He reached into a church service and got you, the miracle is that He chose to reach you.  Knowing that He purposely chose to personally convict your sin-infected soul is a great miracle.  Thank the Lord this is a personal salvation. It comes to us through personal conviction, personal confession, personal conversion, and now we have personal confidence in Him as our personal Saviour.  Amen!  Tell someone today what He did for you, in you and to you.  Amen.  

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