So much hate and yelling?

…so let’s start with how much God loves you

God loves you incredibly!

Pastor Billy Graham’s last message to America is the message for America during our most challenging season in all of America’s existence!

““For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
‭‭John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

But what separates us from a Holy and Righteous God is our sin. No one is without sin. There are sins of commission and sins of omission. Sins of commission are our breaking God’s laws that are really designed to protect us and our relationships.

“And someone came to Him and said, “Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?” And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.” Then he *said to Him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not commit murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; Honor your father and mother; and You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”” Matthew‬ ‭19:16-19‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

Dishonoring God and our parents are at the top, followed by lying, cheating, stealing and their committing adultery and murder and these are just the beginning. And when you add sins of omissions which is not doing what know is the right thing to do, our personal sins pile up faster and higher than our local refuse dump.

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans‬ ‭3:23‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

My first response is like what the Prophet Isaiah declared,

“Then I said, “Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.””
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭6:5‬ ‭NASB1996.

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

And this how I know God’s love is vast capable of solving our sin problem. Sin not only separated us from God, but when we are not rescued by Jesus and we deny Jesus’ way of salvation that guarantees our entrance to heaven, we will be judged to spend eternity in Hell. Heaven and Hell are real places and their respective entry doors are dependent on what you did with Jesus.

“that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” Romans‬ ‭10:9-10‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-9‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus *said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”” John‬ ‭3:3-8‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”Acts‬ ‭10:38‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”” Matthew‬ ‭28:18-20‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

Pastor Mike Kai of Inspire Church Waikele preaching a super encouraging message to light your fire for living during dark times! This is my home church and Pastor Mike is my pastor.

“And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”” Mark‬ ‭1:17‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”” Mark‬ ‭16:15-18‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

““The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”” Luke‬ ‭4:18-19‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”” John‬ ‭4:13-14‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“And Jesus answered and said to them, “It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭5:31-32‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.” Luke‬ ‭12:31-32‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.” Matthew‬ ‭10:7-8‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“And Jesus said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a head of a household, who brings out of his treasure things new and old.”” Matthew‬ ‭13:52‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

The Power of the Gospel by Pastor Bill Johnson of Bethel Church in Redding, California. Great sermon for all disciples walking out Jesus’ command to preach the Gospel.

“But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”” John‬ ‭4:23-24‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts‬ ‭2:38‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

“While the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them. Demons also were coming out of many, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But rebuking them, He would not allow them to speak, because they knew Him to be the Christ. When day came, Jesus left and went to a secluded place; and the crowds were searching for Him, and came to Him and tried to keep Him from going away from them. But He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.” So He kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea.” Luke‬ ‭4:40-44‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

Since I have experienced the incredible forgiveness for my sins, then how can I not forgive people in my life who have wronged me? Lord, please forgive me for not giving freely what you freely gave to me.

One of the top ten largest revivals ever, occurred in the town of Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii according to Dr. Elmer Towns as taught by Pastor Mike Kai.

We need revival in our churches and an awakening in our country. To bring unity to our country, we need Jesus to be at its center. Pastor Mike Kai delivers two sermons that give both historical and biblical context for our nation’s greatest need right now.

Pastor Mike Kai and the message that will help you and me to take responsibility and participate in developing the heart of a man or woman who cares. God tells the man or woman who cares (A.W. Tozer).
