Are you walking with God in a real way.
Listen closely to Adrian Rogers. Does God walk with you and talk with you is Jesus Christ really when you drive around all you when you have your pots and pans that the kitchen when you sitting there today as we near the XQ on the gridiron on the basketball court. Generally, Jesus Christ is to be very rare with you.
You are the with welcome to love words finding featuring the profound truth of the gospel found the practical biblical lessons of Adrian Rogers Hebrews chapter 11 tells of the prophet in Phoenix, champion of our faith, who so please God, and walk so intimately with him.
The never died. Teaneck is an example for us as we learn to walk with God.
What did his daily walk with God look like if you have your Bible turn to Hebrews chapter 11 will begin in verse five as Adrian Rogers shares part one of learning to walk with God first Chapter 11 were talking today about prophesies the second coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the message today will help you to get ready for the rapture, the title the message learning to walk with God blessed look right here in the word of God. In Hebrews chapter 11 and verse five by faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death. That means he never died. It was taken directly to heaven without dying and he was not found. That is, I looked all around point, but they could find it, because God had translated him for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God is that your testimony that you please God will Bible says, but without faith it is impossible to please him, for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
My prayers today that you will want to please God and the way please God is to walk with God and so we going to learn how to walk with God.
Take one step at a time day by day by day walking with God because when you are a Christian you not just simply one who has made a decision you're one who has a life of intimate fellowship with God walking day by day.
Let me name some things about that life that we have with our Lord.
I pray God that he will write these on your heart. First of all, walk with God is a life of faith.
It is a life of faith.
Let's look at Genesis chapter 5 it's very interesting because in Genesis chapter 5 we have the story that the writer of Hebrews talks about Genesis chapter 5 is an interesting story. In a lot of ways. Genesis chapter 5 reads like the obituary the newspaper.
For example, look in verse eight, all the days of Seth were 912 years as a longtime live but knows how it ends, and he died. Notice verse 11, all the days of Amos were 905.
Longtime and he tied look, if you will, in verse 14, and all the days of KI nan were 910 year and a guy like me will in verse 17 and all the days of Mahal allele were 819, five years and he died he died he died he died he died he died. What a dreary monotony, but I want you notice one name that stands out like a gardenia in this desert of death. Look, if you will. Now in verse 21 and Enoch lived 60 and five years, and begat Methuselah and Nina walked with God after he begat Methuselah 300 years, and begat sons and daughters all the days of any worth 360 and five years, and even walk with God and was not for God took it doesn't say he died. He was rapture. He was taken straight to heaven. Now what delineates this life.
Number one the life that walks with God is a life of me a life of faith and Enoch walked with God and was not for God took him. How did he walk with God. Well looking Hebrews 11, five and six now by faith.
Edith was translated that he should not see death and was not found, because God had translated him before his translation he had this testimony that he please God out of a please God. Verse six says, but without faith it is impossible to please him. So how did Enid please God by walking with God. How did he walk with God. He believed God. So the life of walking with God is simply a life of faith will ready to get this thing well he got paid from the word of God the same way I did the same way you get it Romans chapter 10 verse 17. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, you will never, never, never, never have faith. Parking will go. Faith is not guessing it will. God faith is learning will God and believing God.
Faith is hearing from God and believing God.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. That word maybe through the Holy Spirit. Maybe through the pages of Scripture.
But you don't name it and claim it.
God speaks and you believe it that my friend is faith and without faith it is impossible to please God. You want to walk with God, do you.
I hope you do that you're going to walk the walk of faith. Well, sometimes we go back to the Old Testament book of Genesis. We said man, one of the baited know anything back there. Those people would plow linguistics ignoramuses pleaded that television they didn't have a computer what they know. It may surprise you to know what the seventh from Adam new did you know that Anna was a buffet putting your margin June verse 14 and also the seventh from Adam, prophesied of the saying, behold, the Lord, with 10,000s of his saints.
Now think about that. Here's a man only seven generations from Adam and he was prophesying the second coming of Jesus Christ you see the book of Genesis is the seedbed of the rest of the Bible and you see Calvary as you study able and now you see the second coming. As you study in the evening is prophesying all commissary account was followed by the armies of heaven. It speaks of a glorious time when Jesus Christ, the son of God is going to bring all the redeemed are now in heaven with him back to this earth at the battle of Armageddon is that not an amazing thing. Well even had faith where to get faith. How did he learn who talking how to become a prophet.
Did you know that even was a contemporary of Adam digital and Adam had walked in the garden of Eden.
Can you imagine with God. Can you imagine the school of theology that Adam must've had. Can you imagine walking in Eden with God.
They walked in the garden. They talk and even and Adam were contemporaries. They lived as contemporaries you study the Bible you will find out that the when Enid was born. Adam was 622 years may is a pretty overwhelming just in the prime of life.
Adam lived up a 930 years. He and Nina walked together for 308 years. Think how much that Adam must've talked about the work that I can imagine anything that Adam tell Adam what was it like you need.
What was it like when you and God walk through the garden. I can see Adam as his eyes tear up his chin begins to quiver. All he says even walk with God.
It was just wonderful. We walked through Golden Meadows again. We walked through pristine rainforest.
Together we climbed mountain peaks together all the walk with.
It was so wonderful to see Enid listen to Adam he knew able. He knew all of these and now Anna is a prophet of God, who is walking with God? Your walk with God. I'm just coming church am I talking about the learning the facts. Would you like for God to be more real to you that the person sitting next to possible so pay attention. Number one this walk with God begins with faith. This entire chapter is about faith and that the emphasis is that he walk with God because he believed got my number two. Not only is walking God. A life of faith, but becomes a life of fellowship your seat.
You step in by faith. But you walk on in fellowship. Now the Bible says here in Genesis chapter 5 verse 22 and 80 walk with God after he begat Methuselah 300 years begat sons and daughters and then again Hebrews 11 verses five and six by faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death and was not found, because God had translated him for before his translation he had this testimony that he please God, but without faith it is impossible to please him, for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him and the father all walking hand-in-hand in intimate fellowship to fellowship with God, do I do I will boast about it but I want to praise God for I know him.
I know he's real for me.
I walk with the possibles it says I know whom I have believed kids I know in whom I believe that's what many people as friends like that Paul didn't want a preposition between him and Christ said I know whom I have believed all I know about him. They did know about him. He said I also know him. You may know about somebody without knowing somebody but you are to know the Lord Jesus Christ intimately.
You are no him.
It is a life of fellowship now Amos 33 says can two walk together except they be agreed.
Put that in the margin and input this verse that I love this verse was the greatest verses in all of the Old Testament is Micah chapter 6 verse eight he had showed the old man what is good what is good is only good showed no man what is good and what the Lord require of number one, what's good.
Number two. What is got more to do justly, love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God. God says look show mercy people do right yourself and just walk with me.
Some people what does God want some pizza will God wants us to serve a friend of God wanted services that's only want to just use angels.
They do a better job and we always instantly obeying always on the job for the power but God doesn't want mere service. Of course we should serve and bless my wife created we say God wants scholars. God wants us to learn all the facts about no he want you to study, but what is the bottom line.
God wants to walk with you.
Why did he create you. He created you in his image so he could have fellowship with. Did you know that you can know all about him and not knowing. I want to read to you a part of an essay written by a 17-year-old boy who was a student in a Christian school. This Moore wrote an essay on union with Jesus Christ, as you listen to it you going to say that is a good essay but I will tell you I have time for reading, so you can be measuring it. The person who wrote it was Karl Marx, Karl Marx, the founder of godless atheistic communism, the one who wrote the diabolical book does Kapital, the one whose cause more misery, more bloodshed, more hatred, more violence, more division. I suppose than any other man could ever live, wrote this one was a 17-year-old boy listen to it if we examine the history of man's nature as an individual. We constantly observe that spark of divinity in his brass. The enthusiasm for what is good.
The struggle for wisdom, the longing for truth are being smothered by the flames of desire and greed.
The zeal for virtue becomes death and by the tempting voice of sin and turns into a mockery. As soon as we feel the full impact of life. Our hearts reason history, the word of Christ will call out to us loudly and convincingly to tell us that union with him is absolutely necessary, and without him we would be rejected of God for he alone is able to deliver us.
Once a man has obtained this virtue this union with Christ.
He will await quietly and compose a the blows of faith.
He will bravely oppose the storms of passion and endure. Undaunted, the rage of the wicked, for who can crush him or rob him of his Redeemer. What's the problem with all that, not a thing in the world so far as truth is concerned, but if he had been writing an essay on geography or history he would've done just as good a job because had a brilliant mind.
He knew the answer but he did know Jesus founded atheistic communism. Can you imagine a person knowing all that truth and yet not knowing the Lord God made you to have fellowship with him. It is a life of fellowship and you to say the voice I hear falling on my ear, the son of God disclose any walks with any talks with any tells me I am his own does God walk with you and talk we I mean it is Jesus Christ real to you when you drive around automobile when you have your pots and pans in the kitchen we sitting there today as we near the XQ on the gridiron on the basketball court. Generally, Jesus Christ is to be very real with you. You are told wall with him about. Sometimes we come to church and whack differently at church. Now listen carefully what about the site. Obviously when somebody is breaching you to be quiet. Obviously, when we sing you to join together but don't change your personality. Don't suddenly get spooky when you come to church who were in church and we will holy, holy, holy moment.
This a Christian is perfectly natural and naturally supernatural, supernaturally natural and naturally supernatural.
We don't change sometimes I'll be over here city as a guest preacher and they'll be the pastor those past that the church we be talking back and forth in, and he seemed perfectly normal and then he gets up comes over to the pulpit to talk and this guys very natural with dearly beloved any talks I got a steeple stuck in his throat. Sometimes people like to come to church and hear people comment reading one another and chattering like birds and through this old be quiet. We come to worship friend when you meet your brothers and sisters in Jesus. Be cheerful, be happy and nothing wrong with that.
Nothing will now you say, but I think would be still and know that God is in his holy temple is a time to be still. Bible also says shouted to the Lord.
There is a time to cry is a time to laugh is what Ecclesiastes tells us that there are times when we exuberant in our worship, Bible says clap your hands all you people. The Bible says, lifting holy hands to God in prayer that times are we to be on our face on our knees with the Lord. All of these things are true only sins. But the point is that we to be would be natural don't get the idea that our faith is something that we kind of put on. When we come to church. What I'm trying to say is that we are told wall with God 24 hours a day seven days a week three and 65 days a year. Now we come to church to worship. But listen, we also bring our worship to church how wonderful with people who already have been walking with God come to church to continue to do corporately what they been doing individually all week long. That's what makes a glorious service when you come in here and God comes in with you and you come to praise him together.
It is a life of fellowship. All how sweet the wall. In this way, leaning on the everlasting arms. The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord now clearly it is not only a life of faith and life of fellowship, or walk with God is a life of faithfulness. One verses that motivates me a lot. Is this.
But Jesus went about doing good. Sometimes I do similar.
I don't have an agenda today just let me go about doing good about why was this man so faithful he was faithful for 300 years looking you will. In Genesis chapter 5 verse 22 Amina walk with God after he begat Methuselah 300 year, and begat sons and daughters. 300 years Hundred 9500 Day Good Days and Bad Days. Hot Basecoat Names, Snow, Rain, Blizzard, Drought, Flood, War, Peace, Opposition Walking with God and in Turn Don't Turn off. There Is the Constancy Faithfulness of His Walk and by the Way He Did Not Do It in a Monastery. If You Read the Life of a Nikki at a Family That Children Doubtless He Had a Job at Home. He Had Business and He Did Not Do It in an Easy Age When Even Walk with God a Walk with God at a Time Called the Days of Noah Violence and Violence and Wickedness Were Rampant so Much That God Decided He Was Going to Destroy the World with a Flood in the Days of Noah. In It, Walk with God in a Day of Demonic Force. He Walked with God Now Friend, Don't You Say Pastor's Easy for You Because You Preacher You Don't Know Where I Work. You Don't Know What My House Is like. It's Hard for Me to Walk with God's Heart for Anybody Walk with God Because His Own Strength Nuclear Power Plant Saying Atomic Plant We Get Electricity from That Atomic Power Plant. Somebody Says That Plan Generates Power in the True since It Releases Power. The Power Is in the Atomic Energy That Is Released, That the Palace in My Life Is Because God Is Releasing His Power into Me to Walk the Christian Life Day by That I Would Not Be. I Could Not Be Faithful Were It Not for the Lord in Me Even Walk with God. It Is a God Who Walks with You Who Empowers You in Every Demand upon Your Christian Life Is a Demand of the God Who Walks within You, and Walks with You Day by Day.
