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 is a voice and when we declare Jesus is Lord and the voice of power is a recent message from the tabernacle of willing vessels Christian center. 21 I work with my adverse 25 to 28.1 verses 25 through 28 and I want us to read aloud together. So let's do that and there shall be signs in the sod and the moon and stars upon the earth distress of motion, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming all mirrors or the powers of heaven shall be shaken and then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things began to come to pass. Look up, lift up your heads for your redemption draws nigh praise God for his word. You may be seated. Jesus began to explain the last days the days in which you and I are privileged to live in today.
We are privileged to be able to see the Bible play out and be fulfilled.
If anything testifies to the fact that this word is true today. It's the fact that Jesus said these things would happen in but are happening now he's talking about things that will be happening during the time of tribulation, but I want you to keep in mind that we see the foreshadowing here of the signs happening already and he said when you see these things began not: but when you see them began to happen.
That's what he says look up residual C the sun and moon and the stars will see signs in the past 10 years there has been more activity with blood moons and supernovas and asteroids and things happening with the sun and the moon than in the past 50 years the do know that you live because Jesus said it would happen quickly. Scientists they call it a coincidence, and they call it the fact that we live by a motion of the sun and moon but they do not understand that God is the one who placed the sun and that ebony sky to bring light to us. God's law who hung the stars and the Scripture says that he knows them all by name.
Scientists estimate that there is 66 billion stars just in our galaxy alone. You know how much 66 till we get is and that's just the exclamation there's going to be much more and God placed them all in their spot. God has them all may it knows exactly where they are signs in the sun, moon and stars and all the earth dismay among nations old boy we could go for a long time right there.
Can we even today there's dismay among nations nation rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. Jesus said it would happen in perplexity. You know what perplexity is. Perplexity is problems with no solutions to the perplexity of perilous times problems without a solution we are facing that in this country and around the world, problems with no solutions to and roaring of the sea and the waves men fainting from fear. Your Bible says their hearts are failing them for fear NDX dictation of the things which are coming upon the world, or the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
I want to concentrate just for a moment on the passage that says their hearts failing them for fear in the past year, anxiety, depression, irrational fear phobia has risen to an astronomical level. You know why because of the things that are happening upon the earth. Jesus said it would happen. But here's the good news for you a lot. We are not part of this world. We are looking for a city whose builder and maker is God.
And I fully believe that one of these brick did not morning John, the Lord himself will this sin from heaven with a cell with the voice of the arcade and the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first. And it doesn't stop there. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up everybody self-taught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord, a billionaire and so shall we ever be with the Lord hallelujah which means I don't have to be a victim of fear.
My heart doesn't have to fail me anxiety doesn't have to overcome my mind and my life.
Depression does not have to overshadow make and it doesn't have to overshadow you either because you are part of the blood-borne family of God that is protected and covered by the blood of the Lamb, José Luria yes then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. This is the second coming. Not the rapture.
Second, after that seven years of tribulation. Daniel's 70th week every will see him every but before that seven year. Start there's going to be a rapture. Everybody shut rapture. I used to preach. This is opinion, but our preaching is fact. Today John is, I believe it now more than ever before that the body of Christ will be rapture in the moment, in the twinkling of an we shall hear the trump of God and we shall escape what shall come upon the earth. I'll get to that just a moment I want you look with me verse 28. But when these things began. Everybody shall began to take place, straighten up and squared her shoulders like a tea rail, lift up your head for your redemption is drawing God when you see these things begin to happen, we seem to begin to happen and are escalating at an alarming rate. The good gospel loses, we can look up and watch because it's coming you believe it shout yes but your finger look 21 total of 12 with me quickly. Luke 12 and verse 22 on the subject of hearts failing for fear, anxiety, trepidation, depression, oppression. Maybe it's a sickness or disease.
Maybe it's a diagnosis that you're not going to make it well.
I want to encourage you today that as long as your faith is anchored in Christ, even if it's not anchored in Christ, he has your days in his hand. You realize that that he is in complete and total control. But I will tell you you're going to maintain a sense of peace and comfort with your faith anchored in Christ during the darkest seasons of your life. Now Sandra gave you hope this morning hope beyond the scope of impossibility.
But if there is sickness and disease, and malady in your body and your life that Christ is steel a healer. In fact it's already done it. In fact, these already paid the price in factories already took 39 stripes so that you and I could cling to a covenant of divine healing and I don't know about you, I don't know why he doesn't always heal, but I've seen him do it enough to know that he can and that he does and if one would just simply believe that all things are possible to him that believe you believe that shot a man hallelujah. Luke 12 live with me.
Verse 22 and he said to his disciples. For this reason I say to you I say to you this morning. Do not worry about your life wide stop right there we go home do not. He didn't ask you this is not a suggestion. This is a command from Almighty God. Now this is going to say, take no thought, that's good King James line with but in the new American Standard Bible I'm reading to you a better rendering of this is, do not worry about your life as to what you will eat nor for your body as to what you will put on for life is more than food. The body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens for they neither sow nor reap. They have no storeroom the bar and yet God feeds them. How much more value for you. Then the birds and which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life span by worrying about your life and worrying about tomorrow. Do you really believe that what you know somebody told me one time.
Worrying is like a rocking chair gives you something to do but to get you nowhere right. That's why Jesus said do not do it but pastor it's easier said than done.
To tell you something. That's why you have to make his word like the front looks of your eyelids when worry begins to creep into your heart and anxiety begins to grip your mind and your life. Remind yourself what Jesus said in red and he said it strongly. Do not worry about your life. I'm telling you that you are indestructible when you are in the hand of Almighty God, no devil, no sickness of the seas, anxiety, depression and suicide cannot take you out of this life during the hand of God. All I feel Vista then you cannot even a very little thing. Why do you worry about other matters. Consider the lilies how to grow other toilets.
But I tell you, not even Solomon in all of his glory clothed himself like one of these. So we think about Solomon. He was dressed to the nines.
He looked good. He probably had a golden sash cufflinks with his initials on a belt buckle with his initials on the right alligator she they were probably so fresh that were still snapping the unit… I think he invented Rolex is looking good. Facts stand of the top of the steps of the temple with golden lion follow him statue beside him on the steps and Jesus is saying with all of that, the lilies of the field look better and have more glory than that of King Solomon. But if God so clothes the grass in the field. Verse 28, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace. How much more will he clothe you, you men of little faith. Joe and Sandra evidently talk about faith in Sunday school. She talked about faith appear for healing. Doug talked about faith.
Hebrews 11 one. Faith is the substance you a better word for substance is actually assurance faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Verse three says the worlds were framed by the word of God.
Hallelujah it was by the faith that was projected in us that our world is framed when we declare with our mouths that Jesus Christ is in fact more verse six of Hebrews 11 without faith it is impossible to please God, for they that come to God must first believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that hears the word diligently seek him. Now if you want strong faith, or you can have little faith that's easy. But if you want strong faith and great faith. I'm telling you you're going to have to seek him diligently seek him. While he may be found, call upon, while he may be her free said when I come back will I find faith on the earth. 10 years ago. If you ask me that not so sure America's full faith. But today I don't know, will he find faith when he returns the asked the question and he said look at verse 29 and do not seek what you will eat or what you will drink and do not know. Again, keep worrying for all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek nations of the world world rulers seek to survive. Their plan is to survive kill the enemy take care of anything that would stand in the way of their mission or vision and to survive a self seeking desire to survive. That's what nations seek after that's what worldly people look for. But once again you what I are not part of this world were not out to survive were out to Leo Bartlett but your father knows that you need these.
But seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions give to charity.
Make yourselves money belts which do not wear out unfailing treasure in heaven where no thief comes near nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. How do I lay up treasures in heaven. How do I cast off anxiety and fear and depression tell you how seek first the kingdom of God. You put God first in your life.
Every aspect being in God's house financially. Anybody hearing what I'm saying. Seeking first God's kingdom and saying yes to Jesus every day before your feet hit the floor. Why don't you just declare I am a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God, which is my reasonable service that I might not be conformed to this world to survive but that I might be transformed depressed by the renewing of your mind, you need a renewed mind is that right are quickly flipping for quickly and I'm to bring this to a close in just a moment I want us to spend some time at the altar today. Philippians 4 verses four through nine and we know these passages well I forward them to you preach them to you many times but there's a couple things I will pull out and give you for you to chew on today. All right, Philippians 4. Look at verse four skews me understanding that the apostle Paul is sitting in a Roman jail cell.
You have to get that understand that he is chained. He's probably got a transcriber he's telling them what to write and to see into the Philippians. He's got sewage running across his legs because that's what the jails were. It was Roman sewers, rats, every kind of disgusting thing you can imagine and listen to what he says in verse four rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice.
Now when you think about where he use what he's doing.
That verse means a little more doesn't let your gentle spirit be known to all men.
The Lord is near shout yes and that he says be anxious for your children. Be anxious for your finances. Be anxious for your health. Be anxious for your future be anxious about your career. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by what prayer and supplication.
Everybody shall supplication prayer is one thing, communicating with God. Supplication is another supplication is crying out to God with all your heart when you feel anxious cried out to when there's a world that creeps into your mind and it will come. You can control what comes in but you can control what stays there. Call on the name of the Lord, clouding supplication, and declare I'm to be anxious for nothing, say that I'm to be anxious for nothing, your heart does not have to fail for fear hallelujah I'm a listen I know that fear happens. I know that fear creeps in, but you do not.
I'm telling you on the authority of God's word today. You do not have to have a spirit of fear because you have in Christ, power, love, and I sell my fear about not for I am with the be not dismayed, for I am by God. I will strengthen the I will healthy and uphold me with my righteous right hand.
Hallelujah. Verse seven and the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, hears your prescription for anxiety. Reading tried everything else want to try this right everything.
The doctors given you. It works for five minutes then it doesn't work, then you need this thing you need that. Try this. You ready, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report, if there is any excellence or virtue or anything worth praise dwell on these things. He tells you what to think about verse nine the things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me practice this thing and the God of peace will be with you.
You have to practice thinking correctly. I'm a firm believer that your mind can control your brain, not the up around your brain as part of your fallen body. Do you realize that it's got a fire invade to do things erratically but your mind renewed mind your soulless man the spirit man that's been born again through Christ is able to control that mind of yours by thinking about things that are honorable and true anxious if you will practice that I promise you don't have to abide in fear. You must practice how pastor be in God's house every time you stay home. The devil wins. I was telling you I'm sensitive to the fact that some For health reasons, and whatever, but I'm telling you, there will come a day you Mark my words, they will take all that away and you will not be able to watch on Facebook and YouTube. Whatever else are looking at today. You've situated yourself to not be in God's house but to rely on that be in God's house dated God's word.
Trust his word. Pray I don't know how to play just sit there and read his word to help you cry out in supplication. Hallelujah, you do not have to, but I'm not telling you anything that I haven't practiced myself so how do you memorize scripture on tell you how it's all I had.
It's all I had to rely on and it works every time because heaven and earth will pass away, but his word. It's can stand forever stand up with me. Take the Bible quickly if you got it. Let's go through it. Chapter 21. Let's go back there and I want to close this Outlook 21 and look at verse 34 through 36 Jesus closes out his discourse on the last days beyond our take heed to yourselves west at any time so that you will not be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness. Surviving dissipation drunkenness. The cares of this life and so that that day comes upon you, unaware, listen to this translation so that that day, the day of the Lord will not come on, you suddenly like a trap. When the rapture happens those who were left on this earth, you will be trapped. You will have to wait seven years or wait till you die you say yes to Christ the beast, the son of perdition.
There will be a mark. Revelation tells us that no man will need to buy or trade unless he takes that Mark not you ever been hungry before you do some irrational things when you get hungry and you did this, talk about your stomach growling now I'm talking about day in day out without food will be trapped for it will come upon all those who dwell upon the face of the earth. Whether you believe what I'm saying or not it will come upon you. Whether you believe it in here today or not it will come upon the whole earth not just America, not just the Middle East. The whole earth but keep I love this verse. Dear God is all right to shout on Sunday morning.
Verse 36 but keep on the alert at all times play that you may have strength. I like what King James Glenn's that you might be accounted word to his statement. Everybody shouted state. That's why believe the rapture I believe we can escape what will come upon the whole earth. It doesn't have to trap you, but like Noah got in the ark and his family and God shut the door and he rose about the judgment that came upon the earth.
I believe is John the river later in Revelation 4 was caught up into heaven and the Bible says a solid door and he heard the voice like the trouble I believe is going to rapture us. Mike and that he's going to shut the door himself. Glory to and will be trapped in the throne room of heaven and not the judgment of this earth. Hallelujah escape all these things that are about to take place and to stand how is cough to stand before the Son of Man you're watching you here this morning, the way you can escape today. Anxiety, fear, about tomorrow, perhaps thinking about your life and what lies ahead. You get a statement today, through Jesus Christ, put your faith in him today. Put your family in his hands today, but your children, your spouse, your finances, put that in his hands and and do not worry about tomorrow. He will help people help a man I sure hope you prayed that prayer, believing that Jesus has forgiven you of your sin and that he has transform your life from this moment forward, and I'm so glad that you decided to listen to the voice of power broadcast and we pray that it has been a blessing to you.
