Message 92-4

There is none that have done right in all things, they have fallen short.

Nobody is perfect. We all have our faults and shortcomings. If you think that you don’t deserve to be save because of the stuff that you have done, don’t. That is not true. Everyone deserves to be saved. We have made mistakes and all need to mercy of Jesus Christ to make it into heaven. Nobody is above human nature.

Mark 10:17-23

And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is,  God. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother. And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth. Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions. And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples,  How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

Things of this world will not make us happy or save us. When we all die we cannot take our possessions with us. If we can’t take them with us, then why do we collect them at all? I am not saying that we should own nothing, and beg for you food, but we should not set our life mission to making money and buying things.

Better late then never. Enjoy.

Mormon 9:11-12

But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and it is that same God which created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them is. Behold, he created Adam, and by Adam came the fall of man. And because of the fall of man came Jesus Christ, even the Father and the Son; and because of Jesus Christ came the redemption of man.

Christ made it possible for us to be with God. Christ provided a way for us to wash ourselves from our sins that we have committed. Only through him are we able to live forever with our Lord in heaven.

Mormon 9:8-9

Behold I say unto you, he that denieth these things knoweth not the gospel of Christ; yea, they have not read the scriptures; if so, they do not understand them. For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and in him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing?

Do you believe the scriptures? God’s words are printed on paper so that we can read and understand them. Will you follow them? If you don’t then why do you keep them? Either you need to follow what Christ has said or stop saying that you do. There is only one truth and only one way.

Here are the files from yesterday. Look for last week’s in the next day or so.

Mormom 9:1-4

And now, I speak also concerning those who do not believe in Christ. Behold, will ye believe in the day of your visitation—behold, when the Lord shall come, yea, even that great day when the earth shall be rolled together as a scroll, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, yea, in that great day when ye shall be brought to stand before the Lamb of God—then will ye say that there is no God? Then will ye longer deny the Christ, or can ye behold the Lamb of God? Do ye suppose that ye shall dwell with him under a consciousness of your guilt? Do ye suppose that ye could be happy to dwell with that holy Being, when your souls are racked with a consciousness of your guilt that ye have ever abused his laws? Behold, I say unto you that ye would be more miserable to dwell with a holy and just God, under a consciousness of your filthiness before him, than ye would to dwell with the damned souls in hell.

At point will you believe? If you are questioning the truthfulness of the word, know that you will know at some point. It is better to learn about it now when you have a chance to change your life than latter when you meet Christ on judgment day.

Luke 12:15

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

We cannot take possessions with us to heaven. It does us no good to have lots of stuff. That stuff can do nothing for us. It cannot give us happiness, it cannot make us healthy. We must not worry about stuff, but worry about actions.

Message 115:4

Behold. There are many almost persuaded to come into this work knowing the Lord has spoken and speaks the assured way. Deliverance will only come to those that believe, enter this truth, and endure to the end. Eternity with God will have place for all such—this is God’s planning.

If you are thinking about joining the Church, what is stopping you? There is only one way and it is up to you to follow it. I know it can be hard to leave the traditions of man behind, but that is what God wants you to do. He wants you to follow him his way. You will be blessed by it.

Genesis 1:1-5

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

God is all things. He created all things. He can do all things. No matter how powerful God might be, he still loves and cares for you. He will never stop loving you, no matter what. Will you love him back?

Alma 11:38-41

Now Zeezrom saith again unto him: Is the Son of God the very Eternal Father? And Amulek saith unto him: Yea, he is the very Eternal Father of heaven and of earth, and all things which in them is; he is the beginning and the end, the first and the last; And he shall come into the world to redeem his people; and he shall take upon him the transgressions of those who believe on his name; and these are they that shall have eternal life, and salvation cometh to none else. Therefore the wicked remain as though there.

Chris is God. He came to take away our sins so that we can inherit the kingdom of heaven. Will you follow him and receive your inheritance?

Message 71:5

I come not to bruise; I come not to quench the smoking flax; but to bring peace, and let the people choose the way to eternity and life with the Lord, or go down to darkness and that awful rejection of their choice.

Our salvation is our choice. We are the only ones that can determine where we spend eternal life. No one can choice for us. It is our responsibility to find the truth and follow it. Will you seek the truth and then follow it when you find it?

Luke 21:1-4

And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

It is not what we do, but how we do it. Some people give lots of money and others give lots of time. The important thing is not how much, but how important it is to you. Sometimes a little gift is more valuable to God than a large sum.

Here are the sermon files from September 11, 2011. As for the files from the last few weeks we have had some technical problems and they will not be able to be posted.

Message 82:4

You are the remnant of the faithful down to this day and time in which the Lord will do a work, and deliver his people as in the days of old.

The members of the Church today are the same people of God as the days of old. Just because we are alive today does not mean that we cannot be his chosen people. We are a part of those people.

1 Thessalonians 5:14-24

Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

Good words of advice to us even today. We need to strive in all things to please the Lord and if we do the things listed above we will accomplish that. I really like the part where it says to prove all things. This makes sure that we don’t follow some idea that is not of God.

Sorry for the delay. Here are the preaching files for Wednesday of the Assembly.

Matthew 8:19-22

And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

The time to follow Christ is now. We need to stop wasting our time with things that do not matter and start focusing in on the one thing that will save us. It is easy to get caught up in life, but we need to keep our eye on the prize and not get caught up in the distractions of this world.

Ephesians 6:7-8

With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

We should do good in our lives. We should strive to show the love of Christ that is in our heart to others by our actions. We should also strive to do a good job in everything that we do, not for the pleasers of man, but for the glory of God.
