Greetings, friends and new listeners and welcome to this program of the Archie Hardy Ministries. I'm Sharon Otz, thanking you for joining us today because we know faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

The message we bring you today is timely and trustworthy. Jeopardy, losing your rewards. I hope you will hear with your heart and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal to you how you should respond to this inspired word, Jeopardy, losing your rewards. All right, let's turn to Mark the 10th chapter, verse 17. And when he had 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, and that is God. Now thou knowest the commandments. Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, defraud not, honor thy mother and father. And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth. Then Jesus beholding him, loved him.

I like that. I think that's so important that Mark inserted that and said unto him, One thing thou lackest, go thy way, sell whatever 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 he went away grieved, for he had great possessions. Now think that Jesus offered him treasure in heaven.

Wow, what an exchange. Jesus said you have done all these you've kept, but Jesus knew the one he hadn't kept. Remember, it's not only what you do, it's what you fail to do, that you're going to be judged by. And Jesus said, Yes, you've kept all these things.

But one thing, go sell what you have and give to the poor. And you shall have reward or treasure in heaven. But that young man, he made a choice. He decided to forfeit the treasures in heaven for what he had here on earth.

Wow, what a rip off. What a rip off that he would forfeit the treasures in heaven. Now, why did Jesus tell him to do that? Jesus didn't tell everybody that came to him to do that.

But Jesus knew that this young man had a problem with this. And giving proves that you've got the victory over greed. You see, it proves you've got the victory over that. And this young man did not have the victory over that. He might have had the victory and I don't steal and I don't kill and I don't commit adultery, but he didn't have the victory over greed and covetousness. And in order for him to show that he had the victory, he had to give. And he wasn't willing to do that.

And the sad thing is, is he went away still rich, still had all his possessions, still had his bank account, still had his real estate, still had his stocks and bonds, but he had no reward in heaven. Now you have to decide what you would rather have. That's your choice. Amen. Jesus said, lay up not for yourself treasures on the earth. Because the fact is the thief and the robber comes in and steals. And even if the thief doesn't get in, the moth will get in, rust will get in, the law of entropy, sooner or later it will all turn into a rust bucket.

Amen. So no matter what you amass, if your treasure is here, it's only temporary at best when you could have the eternal rewards of heaven. Then I'll refer you, just refer you to Luke 21. Jesus and the disciples had gone to the temple and they were watching as all of these people were coming and the rich were coming and they were dropping in these huge offerings and all of these great things of silver and gold. And in the midst of dropping in all of these offerings, here came a little poor widow and she dropped in two mites. And Jesus said, do you see this little woman? Do you see what she's done? I say unto you that this woman had cast in more than all of them put together.

Why? Because they gave out of their abundance and she gave out of her poverty. And her reward when she, when we get to heaven, they didn't give her name in the Bible, but when we get to heaven, we're going to find out who she is and she's going to receive great reward because they gave out of their, I didn't even know that was coming. All right, brother Murphy, there's a reward given out for paying attention.

He's going to get one. And so because she gave out of her poverty, no one else saw what she did, but God saw what she did. Amen. Because she didn't give to be seen of men. In fact, she may have been her own heart.

She might've even felt, you know, ashamed. You know, it, you know, I know when I used to like count the offering, sometimes you get these bills that are knotted up like this belt. They're so they've been folded so many times they can't get folded anymore. And by the time you open them up, it might be a dollar. But you know what that says to me? That dollar was important to that person. They were making a sacrifice and they might've, you know, they might've thought, well, a dollar's not much. You shouldn't even give that dollar. What's a dollar going to do?

But they gave it. And the Lord sees that no matter how much it's, it's, you know, another thing when we get letters in the mail from our people that write in for the radio, sometimes you will get these letters. I'm not exaggerating. They will have so much tape on them. They'll be taped this way, that way, the other way. And you've got to get this letter opener and you're just, you know, you're practically, you know, you need Popeye muscles to get it open.

And I'm not kidding. When most of the time you would expect when you open up, you're going to see probably a hundred dollar bill or 50 up, it'll be like a dollar or $2. And you might think to yourself, why would they tape all that up for $2? Because that's precious to them. To them that was a sacrifice. In their mind they're thinking, wow, you know, I want this $2 to get there safe.

And they're taping it all up. Somebody else might give a hundred dollar bill in cash, which is a foolish thing to do these days. But there are some people that do that. There are still some people that give cash through the mail and they'll just send it in. It won't be all taped up because that, you know, a hundred dollars is neither here nor there to them. It's no, if they lost it, it wouldn't really upset them that much. Do you see the point that I'm making?

Maybe I'm belaboring it too much, but I just want you to see that. Jesus said, or I should say Paul said in 2 Corinthians 9, 7, every man, again, individual responsibility, according as he purposeth in his heart. So let him give not grudgingly nor of necessity for God loveth a cheerful giver. So we're going to be, one of the things that we're going to be judged on is not only what we gave, but how we gave it.

You can give a small little gift numerically, but if you gave it with a cheerful heart and from your, with all of your might, you're going to get a reward. There are other people that pay their tithes because they're afraid if they don't pay their tithes, they might get a curse. They pay their tithes because they don't want to get under condemnation, but they really, you know, in the back of it, they're kind of begrudging that tithe a little bit. And you've probably heard the story before because it's going around a lot, but there was one person and it's supposedly the original story was true that this man made $70 a week. And you know that this was a long time ago, but even a long time ago, $70 a week would cause you to struggle some. And, but he faithfully paid his $7 tithes, even though it really, he needed that money for his family. And finally the Lord began to bless him and he began to increase and prosper, increase and prosper before you know it. He really got a great financial opportunity and he was then, uh, had a business where he was making $700 a week. And now his tithes was what?

$70 what he used to make in a week. And all of a sudden that $70 tithes back then, that looked like a lot of money. And he was really getting like, man, I'm giving a lot of money here to the church. So we went to the pastor. He said, pastor, I want you to pray for me. The devil's really fighting me about paying my tithes.

You know, I'm $70. That's a lot of money we pay in every week. And the pastor said, all right, let's just pray right now. Let's just pray. And the pastor said, father, you see the struggle that this man is having. You see how that it's, it's hard for him now to pay that $70 tithes. And so Lord, I just ask you, take him back down where he used to be. So he only has to pay the, no, that's all right, brother.

That's okay. You don't have to finish that prayer. Amen. So it's not only what we give, but do we do it out of necessity? God's words as I got to pay tithes, so I will, or do we do it repurposed in our heart? I love to give, Lord. I love to give my tithes.

I'm not only happy I have a job that I can pay tithes cause some people don't, but I love to give. And if I get a raise, that means more I can give to you, Lord. We'll receive a reward in heaven.

So that brings us to number four and that's our motivations. Do what do we do what we do, whatever it is for the glory of God or the glory of men. In first Corinthians three where we started, but we'll back up just a couple of verses and Paul said, I have planted Apollos has watered, but God has given the increase. So then neither is he that planted is anything neither he that water it, but God that giveth the increase. Now he the planet and he that water it are one and every man, somebody say every man and every man shall receive his own, his own what? His own reward according to his own labor. So what we've got to see here is again, every man is going to give an account for the work that he has done in his own body. And Jesus said in John the fourth chapter, lift up your eyes and behold the fields.

They're already white unto harvest. He said, he that reapeth receives wages and gathers fruit unto life eternal that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. So what we've got to understand is that we are not in competition with one another.

And it's when people get in competition that all of a sudden, not only do we have a problem with division in the church and that was another message I've preached quite a bit in the past, but I want you to see it also affects our rewards. We've got to see that, okay, this one watered and this one reaped or this one planted and this one reaped. I'm not anything because I water. You're not anything because you sow. She's not anything because he reaps. It's God who gets the glory.

And when we understand we're not in competition with one another. And in fact, I am responsible for what I do. When I stand before the Lord, I will stand like somebody said in my own shoes. And if I was so worried about what you were doing, and I don't think you should be doing that, and I don't think he should be doing this. Well, it really is none of your business. Your businesses are you doing what you should be doing because you're going to stand before the Lord and give an account for what you've done and accordingly for your motivation on what you did, you will receive a reward or not receive a reward.

Have it go up as wood and stubble and hay. God has given every person a gift or an ability or an assignment. You know, use whatever word you want to use. You at least have an assignment of some kind that God has given you. You are responsible for yours.

I'm responsible for mine. And, you know, the Lord has given me the gift of the assignment to preach and to teach to the body of Christ. There's others he's given the assignment to evangelize, to go into the prisons, to go on the streets, to be a witness on their job or to go and pray for people or whatever. I am going to have to make sure that I'm doing what God has called me to do. And if I do what God has called me to do, I will be successful in that now and I will receive a reward then.

And furthermore, if I do it for the right reason, see, I've got to do it for the right reason. There are a lot of successful people. If you look at that on the outside, they're successful. They either, Oh, they got a singing talent, man. They're really, they're out there.

They're on, they're making CDs and they're on all the shows and all. Now that doesn't mean they're going to get a reward in heaven. See, we don't know. And they only God knows when he stayed, when they stand before him, there are a lot of successful preachers. There's some people that they can, you just sit there like you hang on their words because silver tongue, but that doesn't mean they're going to get a reward.

How many see what I'm saying? So you've got to make sure what your motivations are. Let's turn a flip over to the ninth chapter here in first Corinthians. Okay. Verse 16 for though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory for necessity is laid upon me.

Yay. Well, is unto me if I preach not the gospel or if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward, but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. So let's see what Paul is saying. He's saying if I preach the gospel and Paul preached the gospel successfully, how many will agree to that? He says, I don't have any reason to glory because I preach the gospel and people are being one.

I have nothing to glory of. In fact, woe unto me if I don't preach the gospel because of necessity is laid upon me. Remember Paul said in Philippians, I've been apprehended for that which I've been apprehended. Another words on the road of this mask is the God, the Holy ghost apprehended him, knocked him down, said, Hey you, why are you persecuting me? And he said, well, who art thou Lord? He says, I'm Jesus whom you persecuted. And then of course he got his assignment to go preach the gospel and he would go to Kings and such and stand before great men. Paul said, I don't have a choice. If I don't preach the gospel, woe am I, but if I preach the gospel and I'm going to preach the gospel and I do it willingly, I will have a reward.

If I do it of necessity, because this is my assignment and I've got to do this, I will have no reward. How many follow the logic here? So what Paul is saying is I'm going to preach the gospel. I'm smart enough to know if I don't, I'm under a woe. I must by necessity preach it.

I had been called for that purpose. Now I have a choice. Will I do it willingly or unwillingly? Well, if I do it willingly, I'll get a reward. And if I do it unwillingly, I'm still going to do it, but I'll stand before the Lord and give an account and I'll lose my reward.

Now it doesn't take much to figure that one out, does it? So you see, we're going to be judged by our motivations. All right, let's go to Ephesians, the sixth chapter.

We're still on motivations. Ephesians six, five and eight, verse five. Servants, and whenever you see the word servants here, we're just going to insert anything that will fit. If you're an employee or whatever, if you're in a position where you're under authority, it's basically all we want to say here. Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling in singleness of heart as unto Christ, not with I, service as men, pleasers, but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart with good will, doing service to the Lord and not to men, knowing that whatsoever good any man and do it the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

Now here Paul is just, he just keeps repeating himself and these three times he says, do it unto the Lord, do it unto the Lord, do it unto Christ. Don't do it unto men. Do it from the heart with singleness of heart. Singleness just means a focus. I'm focused on this. I'm not divided.

I'm not murmuring about it over here, complaining about it over here. I'm doing it, but the whole time I'm doing it, I don't like it. Well, that's not singleness of heart. When you got your mind made up and your heart fixed, you're doing it unto the Lord and you're doing it as unto the Lord with joy. And you know what? If men never applaud you, never credit you, never pat you on the back, never say anything good about it, guess what?

It doesn't matter. You're not doing it to them. You're doing it unto the Lord. These people that get upset and get bent out of shape, it's because they were doing it for men.

These people that get mad and want to quit, it's because they were doing it for men. They weren't doing it for the Lord. If they were doing it for the Lord, even though they got their feelings hurt, they would say, well Lord, I know you know I'm doing it for you. And you know what? The Lord would bless them right there and oh, they would just add it to their rewards.

This is one of the things you want to know how to get rewards? Start checking up on what are you doing it for and are you doing it unto the Lord. Maybe sometimes you're mistreated and some people only do good when the boss is watching. Is the boss looking? Oh, if he's not looking. You know what? The boss is looking.

You know why? The boss is Christ. So he's always looking. Amen.

So you need to be realizing that he's the one that's looking and he's the one that's got the rewards. So let's do it unto the Lord and have it with our heart that we're doing it unto Christ. Now let's move on to the fifth thing that we'll be judged by. Because sometimes it's hard to do good when you're under pressure. This is James 1 12 and I know everyone knows this verse by heart. The fifth thing that we will be judged by whether we get a reward is how we respond when we're under trials.

James 1 12 says, blessed is the man that endures temptation for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord had promised to them that love him. The word tried as I brought out once before means to be tested and found to be worthy, reliable, and then it's approved. They don't put the good housekeeping seal on something until they've approved it and tried it.

They don't put the UL under writers laboratory thing on electrical appliance. So they've tried it and then they say, oh, that passed the test and they put their stamp on there. This is what it's talking about. Being approved after you've passed the test.

That's the kind of approval we're talking about. So he said that man who endures temptation and that means doing it patiently without murmuring and without disputing that person is going to receive an eternal reward. Amen. So when you're under trials and tests, it's so easy when we're under pressure that we want to vent and we want to get things off our chest. But you might do that and you may feel better for a little while, but just remember you had your reward when you got the chance to vent and blow your top and say what you had to say and, and you know, throw your little fit and have your little tantrum that there goes your reward. But when you were patient under fire, when you took it, when and you didn't retaliate and you kept the good attitude and you said, well, you know, they didn't do me right, but that's okay. This isn't fair, but that's all right.

Then you are just causing your rewards to mount up. Isn't that something people look forward to? Amen. All right, let's turn to a second Corinthians, the sixth chapter verse three, giving no offense in anything that the ministry be not blamed, but in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God.

Now I'm going to really rush through this. I'm going to tell you that in the next two verses he gives 10 things that were to hold up under and we're to do it in such a way that we are approved and we don't cause the ministry to bear reproach. And these 10 things are very quickly patients, afflictions, necessities, distresses, stripes, imprisonments, two malts, labors, watchings and fastings.

So if you can hold up on any of those 10 or all of those 10 as you face them, then you're on your way to getting a reward. But don't get too happy because we got to look and see how we're supposed to do this in verse six. How do we hold up under these 10 things? By pureness, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost and by love unfeigned. It's getting a little harder, isn't it?

Don't get shook up. You're not left to your own resources. You've got resources and they're in verse seven by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left. So there you've got God's word, the truth and go in Ephesians the sixth chapter and find out what the whole armor is.

So your job is getting easier. You can do this all things through Christ who strengthens you and don't, don't turn the page yet because we're going to find out in the next verses there are nine sets of two each and each set of things and circumstances that will come our way that we must get through and be patient and have all of these characteristics that we just read and they would be by honor and dishonor by evil report and good report as deceivers and yet true as unknown and yet well known as dying and behold we live as chastened and not killed as sorrowful yet always rejoicing as poor yet making many rich having nothing and yet possessing all things. Oh faith tabernacle.

Our heart is enlarged. So very quickly I went through all of those things that and you can go home and study them on your own. If you can get through all those things and you can because it gives you the resource right along there you're going to have rewards. All right Matthew the fifth chapter we got to read this one real quick.

You know it already. It's the Sermon on the Mount and Jesus is given the Beatitudes and at the very end of the Beatitudes he says in verses 11 and 12 blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you. Here's the key falsely for my sake rejoice and be exceeding glad for great is your reward in heaven for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

You want to know how to get great rewards? When you're persecuted when you're talked about when you're lied on when you're buked and scorned like they say and you take it with a good attitude you see now I want you to understand I got to take one second here not only because you got revolved not only because you got persecuted not only because you got lied on because the Bible says all they that live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. You don't get the reward just because you suffered persecution. You get the reward because you were glad and you rejoiced when you suffered persecution. If you got reward for suffering persecution we wouldn't be able to fit in the pearly gates because it's when you rejoice you not only get rewards you get how what kind of rewards? Great reward. So that's our second great reward.

All right that brings us to number six. Let's go to second Corinthians 4 16 18. Okay you know these verses so I'll read them very quickly. For which cause we faint not but though our outward man perish yet the inward man is what renewed day by day for our light affliction which is but for a moment worketh for us a far more exceeding an eternal weight of glory while we look not at the things which are seen but the things which are not seen for the things which are seen are temporary but the things which are not seen are eternal. So our attitude our outlook how do we look at things if we're in the test and we say wow you know what I know this seems like a really heavy trial man this is a hard trial but all of a sudden we begin to look at the eternal weight of glory and then we say light affliction eternal weight of glory temporary eternal fades away endures forever. See that's what you got to do when you're in that place you've got to get an outlook I should say you've got to get an up look because whatever you're when you get an up look you stop focusing on your trial and you begin to see the glory and the reward Paul said for I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us for if we suffer with him we also shall reign with him. So this is what we've got to look at the light affliction it's but for a moment but all the rewards are silver and gold and precious stone just visualize Jesus scooping up that gold and making your crown because if you will have the up look if you're looking up then the Bible says you will realize hey I'm not a citizen of this world my citizenship is not in this world my citizenship is in heaven and from whence I'm looking for the savior who will come and change my vile body of humiliation and fashion it like unto his glorious body and that brings me to number seven the seventh thing for which we are going to get a reward is 2 Timothy 4.8 just gave you a clue about we're looking up we're not citizens of this world but we are looking up for our savior we got our eyes on the skies 1 Timothy 4 and verse oh is it 2 Timothy I'm sorry 4 and verse 8. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge shall give me at that day and not to me only but to all them also that love his appearing I believe that there's going to be rewards given to people who love the coming of the Lord because there's people that's going around saying he's not coming I've heard that my entire life didn't Jesus say that he would say you wicked servant you said oh the Lord's not coming and you went out and you drank and you just got careless and lived any old kind of way but Paul said I'm getting a crown because I right now I finished my course and run my race but I'm not the only one that's going to get this crown everyone that loves his appearing the judge who's the judge the Lord and when's he going to give it that day remember we talked about up front that particular day that day known unto him on that day crowns are going to be given out to people who loved and looked for anticipated the coming of the Lord the Bible says that there was no church the early church in Corinthians they went around saying Maranatha Maranatha Maranatha which means our Lord cometh that was their greeting I've been using Maranatha for at least 10 years now and when I read this and I realized this is one of the criteria for a crown I said wow I'm going to get a reward I'm serious I am serious I mean when I say Maranatha it picks me up I cannot write the word Maranatha without getting somewhere I have never gotten tired of writing Maranatha I write it on the back of all my envelopes when I pay the church bills for the radio no I write it on the back of them I know that some people say come to me say what does that mean and it's in the Bible it's 1 Corinthians 16 22 but I'm going to get a Maranatha reward and if you love the coming of the Lord and you're always spreading the good news our Lord cometh our Lord cometh look up you're not a citizen of this world you're a pilgrim you're on a journey you're an alien a stranger here this world's not your home you're looking up the Bible said if you're risen with Christ set your affection on things above and seek things above because your life is hidden with Christ in God and when Christ who is your life shall appear then shall you also appear with him in glory hallelujah there's a reward for being excited about the coming of the Lord listen if you want to be heaven bound if you would be heaven bound you've got to be heaven born and if you're heaven born then you are not earthbound it's that simple and if you're looking up and you've got an attitude to look up you'll make your way a lot easier we used to sing that song I'm walking up the king's highway it's a highway to heaven and I'm on my way to Canaan land and when I get there I want my rewards to be waiting for me my words my works my attitudes my motivations my givings how I hold up under trials and tests and my rejoicing in the appearing of the Lord those are at least seven maybe not exhaustive but at least seven things that will be judged by whether or not we'll receive our reward and then in closing I'll just mention to you that there's one additional thing now I don't I didn't count it in the seven because it's not specific but Paul also said that the day is coming when there will be manifest the hidden things and the hidden secrets of the heart in that day he said they will be manifest he says so don't judge things before their time because in that day they will be judged and then every man will have praise of God and that's 1st Corinthians 4 2 if you want to read it later when you go home so every time that you feel like that you're gritting your teeth grit them because it will be worth it all how many say amen and great it will be your reward in heaven so jump up and say Maranatha our Lord cometh and it won't be very long and it won't be very long amen and even if the Lord doesn't come for another 10 years you don't know when he could call you I don't know when he could call me so I want to be ready what about you father we just thank you tonight that we can make our calling and election short so that an abundant entrance into the kingdom of God will be ministered unto us that that day we are going to we want to be laughing and if we're doing any crying we want it to be tears of joy that they that go forth weeping bearing precious seed shall doubtlessly come again rejoicing bring in their sheaves with them that we will rejoice not only will we'll receive reward but we'll see our brothers and our sisters and when they get their rewards we'll rejoice with them we'll remember them they were faithful we'll remember Lord when they sacrifice and what a day that will be when we receive our eternal reward Lord I just ask you to make this message real to your people I pray Lord that they would meditate upon it and you would allow it to even become an image in their spirit that it would change their attitude because Lord if we leave this service just blessed but we don't have a change of heart or outlook that I have failed tonight to bring to them the truth of this word but I pray that you will water it and illuminate it and cause it to become real in their spirit and then it will put a watchman at the door of their mouth a gatekeeper at the gate of their lips a gatekeeper to guard their heart where is the issues of all our lives it will change the way we give the way we treat one another the way that we act and talk and everything that we do because we know that one day we're going to stand before you and if it's true you will say well done thou good and faithful servant hallelujah hallelujah oh thank you Lord thank you Lord thank you Lord bless these people keep your hand upon them watch over them Lord those who have a long journey to go home take them safely I pray until we meet again in your house keep us preserve us and Lord just give the angels charge over us in Jesus name we ask it amen God bless you and may I now say this amen what an eye-opening heart-transforming word of the Lord jeopardy losing your rewards saints I must tell you truthfully when God revealed to my spirit how much everything I do and how I do it and why I do it for his kingdom will determine what eternal rewards I will receive or forfeit it revolutionized my Christian walk my whole life all my life has been serving God but I didn't always do it with the best attitudes I had tendencies to pride and self-righteousness and even pouting that I did not see his problems we're not talking about one salvation or going to heaven we're talking about our works being tried once we're in heaven Paul said that every man's work shall be made manifest and revealed by fire to see what sort not what size what quality not what quantity it is Paul said that we all individually will stand before the beam of the judgment seat of Christ to give an account for the deeds done in our bodies whether good or bad he referred to Christians not sinners and he said that if our works survive the fire we shall receive a reward they will come forth as gold silver and precious stones but if they do not survive the fire they will be burned as wood stubble and hay and he shall suffer the loss of his rewards for me this is a sobering reality I don't only want to go to heaven I want all the rewards I'm eligible to receive and I believe you do too find out seven things the scriptures say that will be tried from our words to our works our giving how we act and endure in trials our motivations you know there's
