Welcome to the voice of power broadcast with Gary Atkins past her willingness as Christian center in King North Carolina in a postmodern culture pastor Atkins preaches an old-fashioned message under a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit, pointing, meaning winning to the truth of Scripture and freedom found in Jesus Christ pastor Atkins police the body of Christ has a voice and when we declare Jesus is Lord, the voice of power is a recent message from the tabernacle of willing vessels Christian center. Verse 26, and one of the Lord unto Jeremiah so behold, I am the Lord brought their dog of all flesh is a powerful statement what God is saying there is Ottoman control of it all. Presidents, kings, princes, and control. And that's what you say is the God of all flesh is there was what I want you to underline the smugness.
Is there anything too hard for me God asking that question. Is there anything too hard for me.
Look at chapter 33 in verse three, one jump rope.
What is call unto me and I will answer the and shows a great and mighty things, which thou knowest not know. I don't know about you but I would like to see these things ought never seen before. I would like to do, but I would like for God to reveal his power in such a way that I have never seen it before, but outpouring of the Holy Spirit the power of Almighty God in our sidewalk testimonies like sister Brown, who was healed from coded coming off of the ventilator. I want that to be commonplace. It's all about the big normal customer base that was normal right.
It was somebody raised up by God's power.
It was normal to see the devil cast out of someone. It was normal to see someone's life changed drastically. Well I want to share it with you.
Look at chapter 32 again I look at verse 28 therefore thus saith the Lord. Behold, I will give the city into the hand of the child.
The Babylonian and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and he shall take now this point in history we have a wicked king number one Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon who are storming through the countryside of the area of Jerusalem and Israel taken captive one nation after the other they come to Jerusalem and at this point Jeremiah is prophesied in this text. Babylon is surrounding the city. They are getting ready to lay siege and taken captive.
This is about 586 BC Jeremiah was an interesting profit. If you ever read Jeremiah. He prophesied for 40 years.
He prophesied the doom of judgment and he said if you do not repent judgment will come and you know what it did and said God told him it would happen and that for 70 years they would be held captive by wicked Babylon, but God called Jeremiah from his mother's womb ordained him to be a prophet to the nations, listen to me this morning and he told Jeremiah you're going to prophesy and preach for 40 years but no one will ever answer your invitation for altar call. The total budget preachers that I'm calling to preach but nobody is ever going to get saved nobody's ever going to repent. But I want you to do it anyway, and I want you to smile why you doing that's what he told exactly told Jeremiah to put a yoke around his neck symbolic of how Babylon would be yoked upon the nation of Israel and Judah and would take them captive. He told him to buy a field in this chapter Butterfield in Jerusalem that Babylon is getting ready to come in siege and of course expecting why they're getting ready to take the land they're getting ready to take captive. The people of God, they might set fire to this land that I purchased in my hometown, but God told him to do it and here's why. Because God had a promise continue to read with me verse 29 of the Chaldeans that fight against the city shall come and set fire on the city and burn it with the houses and they did about whose roots. They have offered incense to bail and pulled out drink offerings unto other gods to provoke me to anger. So God has been provoked to anger a nation that he blessed.
I mentioned I mentioned that he chose that he favored they began to serve other gods, the God of bail. He was the fertility God of the Canaanites, and they would worship bail with fornication, lasciviousness, sexual immorality now or tell you something that doesn't express and reflect America.
I don't know what does. In fact, Romans chapter 1 tells us that eventually if you continue with fornication and lasciviousness that it will lead to men earning for men, women, burning for women and then eventually he would just hand them over to a reprobate mind.
Well if you think about our nation in the 60s and 70s. You have the sexual revolution right.
It was love and peace and freedom in all of this in the name of sexual immorality in the 80s and 90s you had homosexuality, lesbianism aids, increased by a high percentage because of that, and now you not only have that as the normality in America but now you have men wanting to be women, women wanting to be men because their's confused and their gender. Why, because they been handed over to a reprobate mind this nation has been handed over to that city, but good hand, we have been handed over. That's what was happening to Jerusalem to Judah listen to me.
They were worshiping bail. They were worshiping bail and it provoked the anger of God is with me. Verse 31 for the city have been to me as a provocation of mine anger my fury from the day that they built it, even unto this day, that I should remove it from before my face got angry here. God gets angry is a merciful God is a gracious God, but the Bible still says it's a fearful thing to fall into the head of the living God.
You hear me this morning not only as individuals but also as a nation itself tearful thing to abandon the book to abandon God. I could go through play a plethora of lists of what is done removing the Bible from school. When you remove the Bible you had to get metal detectors taking the 10 Commandments out-of-court houses and we wonder why they're breaking the law abortion 60 some million since Roe versus Wade. In the 70s legalizing same-sex marriage 2015 across the nation. The highest court in our land says it's okay that we don't think God is not angry with what this country has done. But not only is he angry with sin is also anger with the church to show you what to verse 32. Because of all the evil of the children of Israel and of the children of Judah which they have done to provoke me to anger.
They read with me doesn't leave anybody out doesn't blame it on the police.
He doesn't blame it on the king, the president doesn't blame it on political leadership to see blame it on, let's read their teens, their princes, the police, the prophets, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, guessing that is that everybody had the majority of that our place unto the Lord.
Preachers, churches, God's people, what have we done with all the things that are going on what we been silent. We haven't said anything where the church protesting where the church whipping up the banner of holiness and say what I want to live under this demonic influence that's invading our society would set back the churches become comfortable with luxury and life. But right and that is a sin. Ladies and gentlemen, it is a sin to setback get lazy and do nothing. That is a sin.
Are you hearing what I'm saying to be comfortable my for no more to be comfortable like that and be part of the body of Christ is a sin and God is angry about because notice verse 33 and they have turned on to the back and not the face though.
I talked rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearken to receive instruction.
He is talking to his people right there.
I've talked and I've given them my word. They have my commandments. I told parents to teach their children the law of God. I told the priest to be holy incentivized to do the work of the Lord, but they chose idolatry bail worship, the lust of the flesh over me and because of that judgment was there that wasn't coming. It was there. Are you hearing what I'm saying and then during election time.
The church finally raises her voice is receiving impending judgment that could come upon us. Verse 34 but they said their abominations in the house where the house of God where they perform their abominations. The temple God's house cats were, they do. I'm not convinced that we haven't been doing that as a church is a body of believers. When I turn around and praise and worship of him singing in all this. I see people standing there like this using God's pleased with that. You want to see a move of God. You want to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. Let me remind you, it's not singers fault.
It's not my fault it's definitely not God's fault it's your fault, because what you put into something is what you're going to get out.
It is spiritual immaturity to stand there and say God touch me real pleasure. Let me tell you what Christian does. They praise and magnify God with not feel the hold on don't clap. I did not feel like being here this morning, but I got here. I made up my mind. I blow with my hands raise my voice dignified all the all sufficient awesome God because these were because I want to see revival five know if you want to see revival to put something into it. You have to put forth some effort. I don't care if you don't like the song. If you don't know the song make up something and magnify God, raise your hand. Because if you don't it will be the same old same old robots to call him to God and he will answer us and show us great and mighty things, which we know not that he can do it at a time in which we live now you believe it shall allowed a bad all I believe it with me but to file the house.
Verse 3435 and they built the high places of bail we go again, was the high places of bail about Facebook about Twitter. Think about the silence Christianity based silence American values that you want to spend most of your time supporting that's idolatry that's bail worship.
Are you hearing what I'm saying and you find yourself lusting after somebody else's life. All that picture looks nice. I wish we were that happy Celeste that's bail worship. That's idolatry in this country has taken it hook line and sinker. Verse 35 high places of bail to calls their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Malec you want me to purchase more but I will know Malec was a brass God who would sit there with his hands out like this in his belly was empty with fire and they would offer their babies as a sacrifice to this thing called Malec and with over 60 million babies in this country and we say it's okay and we got people running for the highest office in the land that say it's a woman's choice to wash up but God, and they were doing it in Judah. They were doing it in Israel that God was angry about it was. I don't want to just see it stop policy row versus Wade overturned, say that's what I want to see true repentance is not just stopping it's having a change of mind of how you how you view the thing.
See, I think we got an opportunity as the church body of Christ. I think we had an opportunity 2016 with bullet when I would blow the haploid God gives us another chance.
We blew it last for your folks, we have blown it as the body of Christ. We lay back.relaxed. Thank God great country great leadership, the Bible, sparking once again Christianity is authorized no you had the opportunity and I pray we did it again. Let's read which I commanded them not, neither came in unto my mind that they should do this abomination to calls Judah to sin. I want to see in the text. How do you think everybody did this not but look how individual sin turns into national sin how God judges our nation God, even if there's good individuals within that nation. But why, why are we seeing this today because you and I if you're watching the body of Christ has been silent in which setback would ask God to bless us and help us to help me with forgot about a lost hurting and dying world. Are you hearing what what must we do well is read verse 36 now therefore thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel concerning the city where love you say it shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword violence we see that in our streets have a quick by famine without spiritual famine in this land for years and by shouted pestilence disease. Why worshiping bail worshiping Malec idolatry and the people of God were okay with it to the point that they brought it into the house, not a want to get on a soapbox about other churches.
I do it all the time on the but I'm telling you, it drives me crazy when I see churches bringing idolatrous worship into their sanctuary and I don't even see the deception the manipulation with lighting the manipulation of certain types of music. I want you to hear me this morning. I saw one church having kids at the Father's Day cocoa that's happening in distributed people embrace it because they're not legalistic they're not old fashion.
You know their progressive men got a certain model and they want to grow the church and I just want people show lopsided card and play their top five. Tell you something that is the worship of bail and it's in the house of God telling you, this church which are responsible for and responsible for you.
I will do everything I can to make sure we do not worship bail in any form or fashion house manager boldly declare that I believe a motion is the sin of worship to Malec, I declare that I'll tell you another thing I declare with my whole heart that same-sex marriage somebody explain to me how you don't have a choice of whether you're homosexual or lesbian, but you can make a choice on your gender, how upside down is that a reprobate mind. But here's the hope development. Verse 37 this is what turns around for Judah. This is what turns around for Jeremiah. Ask yourself the question is anything too hard for God. I want to think about your life.
Maybe you spun into a two immorality, fornication, and maybe it's a secret. I don't know but maybe your secretly worshiping bail. Maybe you're secretly lusting after other people on Facebook wanting their family and their money in there.
All of this and that, maybe, that your new fallen into that heavenly – your anxious or depressed. You know why because you pay more attention to that thing you do the worship of Almighty God.
Listen to me this morning.
I'm giving you the prescription for happiness. I'm giving you the prescription for joy and that is lift up your voices shout with the voice of trial because you are the people of God, a living sacrifice time. Oh boy, this truth, it would take a different road. Behold, I will get them out of all countries verse 37 or feel the spirit of the Lord. Even today is taking Jews from all over Europe, bringing them back to the homeland of Jerusalem, Israel is the size of New Jersey listen to me. The size of New Jersey. We call it the armpit of America. And that's the size of Israel. I'll tell you something.
There's no country more powerful.
There's no country more ready to receive a battle in the nation of Israel. You know why because God said to Jeremiah I will bring them back to this land here me today whether I have driven them in mine anger and my fury. I did great wrath, and I will bring the verdana display and I will call to dwell safely. This is the promise of God. This will ultimately be fulfilled after the tribulation. During the millennial kingdom when Jesus Christ is ruling and reigning in Jerusalem listen to me and there will be peace what is called the Israelites and the Jewish people, but you have to think about God's word, think about prophecy. What does that mean to you what I you realize we are the Israel of God that there's not a distinction of Jew and Gentile individuals maybe nationally, but not individuals.
We are the Israel of God we are part of God's family. We are the seed of Abraham by faith in Jesus Christ and also understand that not only was God talking about the future. He was also talking about the immediate future.
Because 70 years later they would go back to Jerusalem. Nehemiah would rebuild the walls in 52 days is what would rebuild the Temple Institute temple worship again. It will all happen about 400 years before Christ came into the world and they began going back to their country. What does that mean for you. Will the judgment that were seeing from God, the angel of God upon this country, we have a hope that it can be reversed if we call upon the name of the Lord that he return his glory back to the house of God, and to amend but he can bring you back to your house back to your life and they shall be my people and I will be there God. Verse 39 and I will give them one heart and one way that message extends from the day of Jeremiah to today.
I will tell you that we must not just preachers, not just pull the tears and evangelists but you on your job wherever you go to your family boldly declare that there is one way, and his name is Jesus Christ that the answer is Jesus, the answer is Jesus the all shouted is Jesus hallelujah one way that they may fear me forever for the good of them and of their children after them. Verse 40. I will make an everlasting covenant with that I will not turn away from them and do them good, but I will put my fear in their heart that they shall not depart from me today. I will rejoice over them to do them good and I will plant them in the land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul for thus saith the Lord like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people get this verse so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them that we have. Hope is anything too hard for God, can he change America goal God to change our families can he change the church all yes he can. Yes he can. But go with me.
Ecclesiastes 7 on the clothes I've got so much. This morning I Ecclesiastes 7 close with this archery verse 13. Consider the work of God. For who can make that straight, which he has made crooked. How can you change his plan. How can you change what he has some overly predetermined to the how can we change what I believe is anger and judgment from a holy God, to a nation that some disagree with me but I believe with all my heart I know what a good man Jeremiah. How can we change that but three verse 14 in the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity, consider God also has set the one over against the other to to the end, that man should not find nothing after him. What is he saying there are going to have days of prosperity and blessing. You're going to have days of adversity, verse 15, all things have I seen in the days of my vanity. There is a just man but perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man. The prolonged of his life in his wickedness. In other words, he seen the good die young, and he seen wicked evil people live long and prosper. How can we figure that we can't but make songs about only the good die young, but what you think they get it from verse 16 we not righteous overmuch, neither make myself over wives. Why should a style destroy thyself. In other words, never think that your righteousness and your holiness has anything to do with what you do. You came to church big deal across all the way up Via Dolorosa hung up on Golgotha's heel and you think you did a favor for God by being here. Absolutely not. You owe him. Your presence you all him your life. You see that type of mentality that you're doing me a favor.a favor you will him will hallelujah I hope you verse 17 B.
Not overmuch. Wicked, neither be thou foolish. Why should you die before your time.
My point is I don't believe the church has to die before it's time. I don't believe last verse 18 it is good that thou shouldest take hold of this. Yes, also from this withdrawal, not buying hand for he that fear of God shall come forth of them all.
Another translation says the man who fears God will avoid all extremes.
Everybody shall balance.
That's what we need.
He said: to me and I will answer the and show the great and mighty things, which thou knowest not a man.
