Today's destined for victory message a preview of coming attractions, and went to stop beating what you believe that you got a switch weaker but that means you're strong when you're on the way, this one won't get this one won't get tired right now you have a good day for about 10 to 12 hours and while you start your engines shot down.
It happens you want, but your engine starts shutting down when you realize that you cooperate with children on children like to take out make him take a nap. If something will pay somebody thank you and send you the bed like anymore, but you don't obey out to be big on all house right now. It was wonderful seeing everybody, God, you all all on the one shot you through try this again tomorrow where I didn't get an thank God the one that's coming, we'll be able to enjoy God for ever and never happened as much as take on unbelievable when we get inconceivable that in the natural body, but you'll be strong all in the Bible says it's going to be raised in power, no tiredness, no weakness, no sickness, no please, nothing that would bog us down. Nothing that will now not only be tiredness of the body, but time you are tired, not because of your physical activity because of your mental and emotional activity.
I do notice that very often we are tired, not because of anything we've done is not like you been working physically hard all day long, but the stress of because the body tends to The mind and emotions, diseases and calories and frustrations and believe me just watch what stress will do, not only to your mind but your body next, chances are it's something going on in your body moving get your body misaligned, but also stress has a direct impact on your body, and soul on the Bible says our next one is going to be sold in power. God is going to remove not only sickness and tiredness and weakness but is gonna remove everything that would frustrate us what you got interceded and prayed and cried. Now, because the day is coming when you will be worried about any of the folk will rejoice in the God of your salvation and rejoice in the Lord that you mess up having to worry about them. Now is the time of prayer. Now is the time of crime and interceded all God save my loved ones and what we get Junior make it all now, because when you get there, God will wipe the tears from what that means is every memory everything that would cause you frustration will be erased and they'll be nothing but show is change body that will die a body without limitations. Somebody that reflects the glory of the image of God, look at what he says beginning in verse 45. In this text. He says it is written, the first man Adam became a living being the last Adam, which is Jesus Christ was a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first.
But the natural and after that then the spiritual.
The first man Adam was of the dust of miracle second man. Jesus was from heaven as a man so are those who are there, and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are heaven, guess what you are in Christ, you are heaven when you're born the time you're born in the when you're born again, born in the image of Jesus. He says, and just as we borne the likeness of the man. Verse 49. We shall also bear the likeness of the man from heaven. I declare your brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. He says Gotto understand that you are headed to a state where God is going to make you like his son Jesus were going to bear his image.
Now we better spiritually now were born again now. But you know it's a funny thing you got the image of the ever lasting Christ trapped in a mortal body where you have to deal with moral issues and you have to deal with temptation to deal with life one day God is going to transform us through you is going to come out and that truly was just like Jesus. First John three into the apostle John said beloved, now are we the sons of God, son of God right now you and I say because you have struggles and issues you are child of God right now.
I was a sinner. Now I'm a child of God, that you still have issues about. The child of God right to talk to me. Maybe a child of God, who passed up in your face and what you did remind him of his future: on the pump said to be Like and that's what you spend your don't think there now. Well now trying to drum up a company the bottles of the day is coming when the Catholic he is living under an awful sentence that will mess with you. Recall that you are better off than him and his best. You are a child of God and shall be all mess with you because you still get some things together in your life shall be on the on the journey Holy Spirit is walking along in teaching me how to be like Jesus convicted me up and telling me that I'm a child of God. I no longer live in obedience to God the glory and soldiers on the ground and God is committed to love God. The Bible says he began the good work in us by Jesus in our hearts and now he's teaching us to live like him walk like an talk like like to make the citizens like you one day when he transform somebody will also transform all of us so that we are made completely in the image of our Lord Jesus Christ, all telling you the coming attractions are too much for me. We are sons of God right now and that's why he closes the chapter look at what he says when he gets over in verse 54 when the perishable has been clothed with the perishable mortal with immortality saying that is written will come true have been the second half of Pastor Paul Shepard's message is coming right up.

The matter is, my brothers, my sisters coming attractions are wonderful because self is going to be swallowed up in victory. The last enemy that will be conquered is and when God conquers that for us.
We will live forever without any restriction in the presence and the glory of God.
It says were going to be raised in glory want to experience such glory what what what that word implies what the Bible implies about our life after our existence on this planet.
Your best day on earth is not to be compared to a boring day in heaven about your best day that just about a season in your life where you just love everything that went on that day. What a beautiful morning oh what a beautiful day. I have a feeling everything is going my way from Oklahoma when you have those days they are and be compared to what is to come with a possible he said what I want to go or stay. Paul talked as though God was going to give them a choice to go or stay this man has some incredible calling on his life and he said no I'm trying to figure out whether to go or stay. He said to be better for you. But if I go he said it is all better and what he was trying to describe you the work are described a great distance.
He said live in the hereafter is better for the child of God than anything I can experience here. You know how much people love you here they leave and go to be with the Lord, you know what that really crying at your funeral.
I'll let you go back four years. If you want when you get in God's presence, the glory be excitement meet you in the presence of God is of such a nature.
Paul said you wouldn't go back to the folk you love the most. If he gave you the chain you want to live to be able to experience something like, so also the people down here Mr. when you cried a funeral God in Christ anybody who died in Christ looking around and making plans and the clutch bag and then watched a couple pickpockets going Christmas and try to rip you off to try to steal your identity and think about what you two different existence of what you would never go back to the Lord somebody does miss you when you leave now until the Lord takes you, so that someone don't don't don't believe our footprint in the sand not to be somebody's life is better because you were here to be people will be in heaven because of your influence in their lives to be people who are blast to other better when you're going to bring some because you are such a blessing, you encourage them you help blessing you want to be a difference maker. When you leave.
I told you many times when I just got here. I want to go to lunch, which only no no no no no no no, wait, wait, wait, wait, timeout, stop the presses. All the work to get you straight no, I want you to pull out when you know how close you made me cry about his life, but when his life is over, not a sorrow, not all way down will you have because you will have the ultimate glory.
The ultimate experience in the presence of Christ.
That's what all saying saying some glad morning when this life is over, I'll fly away on God's celestial store around every now and then going fly away from prison bars have flown away just a few long weary days and then I'll fly away to a land where I shall never in I'll fly away so that we still saying that when we all get in the safe wondrous love of Jesus and his grace in the man blessed. He's prepared for us a place to get excited. I know we all want to claim a promise of blessings now. I want to tell you something to look forward to God has exceedingly impressive promises. But when this life is all I got something to look forward to. We got a preview from the word of God, of coming attractions and that's why you gotta get your life right and do it right away. That's why you can't afford to live as though you have forever because you don't know when you're checking several years ago it was the last time that New Year's Eve was on a Sunday. In fact that's coming up in a few weeks where New Year's Eve is on a Sunday.
The last time that occurred probably six years ago.
If you factor in leave you. We had visitors in our Sunday morning services and one of the services to people visited.
I found out about this after the fact because my phone rang on a Thursday and on the other in it at the office and on the other hand was a young woman crying and she explained to me that she and her boyfriend had visited our church the previous Sunday. It was New Year's Eve. She said I'm a believer. My boyfriend is not. She said I heard you on the radio and I don't live in the immediate Bay Area live in California but not in the Bay Area but I heard the broadcast and I was blessed by and she knew she would tell me about having a son say boyfriend subsequently said I don't you preach against it.
She said, but I had enough say boyfriend and I was hoping he would come to the Lord that I really wanted to marry him. Talk about getting married. I was afraid that he will come to the Lord and she sits on the go with me that New Year's Eve to your Sunday morning service and she said he did and we said to one of your services and he didn't respond to the altar call but after service.
He said to me you know the amounts that watch night service ago to have tonight leading into the new year.
He said why don't we stay down in this area and go to that certain and she said okay she was glad that he wanted to go to a second service. They hung around in the area got somebody and stayed around and attended I watch night service that night while as is my traditional watch night. I don't preach. We do a lot of singing and praise and worship testimonies and what have you and I we just bring in the new year worshiping the Lord.
Basically have a good time of fellowship together, but always give an altar call that night I gave an altar call was usual on watch night and I said you don't need to go into the new year and you have a new life and I said if you don't have a new life in Christ. You're not ready for the new year. You need to give your life to the Lord, you need to get off to a real start and I said if you're here and you need to receive the Lord, come on down. Let us pray with you two people respond. One was a boy, a preteen boy's father came with them and the other was this young man in his 20s, were convicted and he came down protesters took him aside. Pray with him. We rejoiced. We sang in the new year went home four days later this Thursday. She's on the phone telling me that this happened and she said passed on calling you because today he was killed in an automobile accident, she said but I want to tell you my heart is broken because I was really hoping to marry him, especially now that you got to see and I would've love spending life with him.
She said but I want to tell you the last four days. I didn't even know she said he was a completely different man.
She said for the last four days. He is just talked about the joy that he feels that his seas feels like a weight was completely lifted off that he now had hoped that he had future and he had a life he was forgiven of his sins. He had standing with God. She said not hardly know who he was but it was amazing to see the transformation in just four days and today he was snuffed out in a moment that she said I'm calling the thank you for giving him a chance to receive I'm telling you folks tomorrow is not promised.
Christmas is not if you don't know the Lord.
Now is the time so that you can be ready for those. Thanks so much for joining us for today's message. A preview of coming attractions.
