Force Feed Gods Word!
This may sound kinda drastic, but in todays world, do we Gods people
actually make time to sit down and read Gods word or holy bible? I am sure
there are those that do make time daily for Gods word, but to be honest more
than most don't on a regular basis.
I believe we can be perfect in this present world but it cannot be done without
Gods help. I believe that making time thus forcing ourselves to make time for
Gods word is the first step to becoming perfect, if we are willing to make this
step theres hope.
I have found over the years that the easiest way to get Gods word into your
heart and mind is to listen to it on a recording, a CD, cassette tape or even on
the computer like youtube, there are many complete video series for Gods word,
as you may already know I listen to the original KJV of the bible.
God has shown me also that reading or hearing Gods word is not enough to be
perfect it is the first step, we can do nothing without God helping us, Christ said
that we could do nothing without him, thus that means we could not even
breathe unless he gave us power to do so.
Gods word is like a powerful cleanser, a mind cleanser. we live in a spiritually
filthy world, and our minds are exposed to it daily, there are so many ways that
we are exposed to the worlds filth, and by filth I mean sin. We cannot see this
filth because it is spiritual, and all spiritual things are invisable to us, if we
could see the spiritual like God sees it we would be in shock all the time, because
the spiritual realm is where God, his angels and all devils and fallen angels
So to the world this spiritual realm is foolishless, but to us we know its where
God is and lives. There is a spiritual stain on our hearts that is from sin, and it is
a filthy stain, so filthy that God cannot and doesn't allow it in his house, heaven.
But thanks be too Christ our Lord our stain is forgiven, and washed away by
his blood that paid for our spiritual crime, sin, for as Adam and Eve sinned,
then sin passed upon all flesh, for that all have sinned, so by one mans sin sin
entered the world, and all are of that one man so all are guilty.
Our goal as Christians should always be to please our Father in heaven, to
obey and overcome the world, and our sin. To do this we must make sacrifices
in our life, what I mean is that sin can be fun, it can be very pleasurable, it is
like a drug that is addicting and thus without Gods help impossible to
I used to think that by simply hearing or reading Gods word day and night,
for hours and hours at a time I would just naturally stop sinning and thus
become perfect. But temptation would come and I would fall, my sin that most
often weakened me was coveteousness. Lusting for things that were not mine
and that others had that I wanted etc.
I fought this sin all my life, until God woke me up and told me that I could
listen to his word non stop forever and never overcome sin, I couldn't believe it
because I wanted the glory and credit for overcoming my sin, this is pride also.
we have to realize that we are not our saviours, we did not die on a cross, we did
not pay the price and make the great sacrifice, only God can have that glory
So what am I saying here? no matter what we do we cannot save ourselves,
there is no place we can go to perfect our souls before we go to heaven, we are
saved by Gods grace and by his grace alone, nothing we do can make us perfect
without God doing the perfecting, and unless we put him first and allow him to
work through us to perfect us, we will labor in vain to overcome this world and
the temptations of sin.
Here's the end of this message, Read or listen to Gods word as much as you can
stand it, it does have a cleansing effect on our minds, it is a mind cleaner, but it
cannot save you from sin, it cannot control you and make you stop sinning, sin
by nature is stronger than anyone under it, and stronger than any flesh it is in,
without God no one can resist it, it is the god of this world and the world is
under its power and it is a servant of sin and cannot escape its power.
Before we were saved we were the servants of sin and we were slaves to it, we
loved it and it controlled us. but now that Christ has given us a new spirit and
washed away our sins we are no longer servants of sin but of righteousness, we
were of sin now we are of God, one was to death which is sin, but now we are of
God to life.
To finish this message, hearing Gods words, cleanses our minds and opens the
door for God to come into our hearts and do his work, but he will not force his
way in, he will not work through us against our wills, and if we do not allow
him in, or allow him to help us he will wait for us to open that door and allow
him to work.
The door I speak of is to our hearts and minds, in Christ God is already in our
house, our heart and mind, but he will not force us to do anything, we must give
him room to work and we must allow him to work, do we hinder God from
helping us? yes, and more than we know.
Also he will not do anything unless he gets the credit for it, this is why so many
fail to walk on water, raise the dead, heal the sick, overcome sin etc, man wants
the glory, the credit, and the praise etc. God is not going to give man power to
do great things if he's going to walk around praising himself for it etc.
I speak for Christians only, as God will in cases give men power to do things,
but it is for their destruction etc. In our case we can do nothing and will do
nothing unless God gets the glory and the credit and praise, it is not easy to
stand back and let God work in our lives and then give all the glory and credit
and praise to God, because it is not natural for man to sit back and let someone
else do all the work and get all the praise etc.
It is only natural for man to want to be the man, stand on the mount and be
the one who gets all the glory, power, praise and credit, but for us to overcome
this world and do great things in God, we must allow God room to work and we
must seek God for help and ask him to work through us, to overcome this world
through us, and by listening to his word and asking him to do great things
through us and giving him all the credit and praise, things will happen like
never before amen...
