THE GLORY OF THE GOSPEL & THE POWER OF OUR GOSPEL

Posted on

WORD: THE GOSPEL

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Genesis 1:2

  • And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
  • God Moved
  • God Said

TITLE:

THE GLORY THE GOSPEL and THE POWER of our GOSPEL

The Glory of the Gospel: God Moved

The Glory of our Gospel: God Said (Homologos)

2 Thess. 2:14 (dropped in my spirit on 12/10/21)

—————————————————————-

The voice (God Said) of the Lord is upon the waters:

the GOD OF GLORY thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters. (Psalms 29:3).

————————————————————————————————–

Psalm 29:3

Thou sendest forth (God moved) thy spirit, they (Vessels: Man and Woman) are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

Genesis 1;2

The GLORY OF THE LORD shall endure forever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth (GOD MOVED) the hills, and they smoke

Psalm 104: 30, 32


The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

Psalm 97:6

PARADIGM:

GOD LOOKED

                    GOD MOVED

                    GOD SAID

                    WE LOOK

                    WE MOVE

                    WE SAY (WHAT DO WE SAY THE GOSPEL)

Whereunto He called you by our Gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 2:14

Gospel is the same word as Good News in other translations it could be rendered as

Preaching or Proclaiming as his way (God).

Glad tiding, and the Traditions which you have learned.

APPLICATION OF THE GOSPEL

The Gospel is a personal invitation to obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

PASTOR RE BOSWELL

Not in the same way as sharing God’s Glory

But in the sense of obtaining God’s Glory

To share:

as God illuminates you (as Moses)

changes You (as Saul)

and sanctifies you as (Aaron).

“Scripture says If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us.

2 Timothy 2:12

———————————————————–

This is the right way.

This is the right tradition

The wrong way is the route Lucifer took

  • And was found cast, to the ground and sentenced to a pit of eternal damnation.

Beware

 MAN: “Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2:4
Hell,
 and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied. Prov 27:20

OLD TESTAMENT: SURVEY PRESENTATION of Moses rendition of OT Gospel

Numbers 10: 29

And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses’ father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the Lord said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the Lord hath spoken good concerning Israel.

(Concise reading)

In the Old Testament when Moses led the people of Israel to the Promised Land, he was convinced that, what God told him was true. He led, during an era of change, and an era of growth and development.

In times of change leaders must not only be a spiritual guide but be an inspirational as well. An magnanimous character, not prone to lose it when the going gets tough. In a way the leader has to be a good salesman to convince others that this way (Gospel) is better than the way that you are currently going. He had to maintain a positive mental attitude throughout the difficult roads ahead.

THE GLORY THE GOSPEL and THE POWER of our GOSPEL

Qualifications to share in the fruit of the Gospel must be met by asking.

WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, and WHO

WHY because it is what you are chosen for, to lead, not for titles or our any weak reason, but the why has to be a strong reason. A sustainable reason. You should not have to tell any one that God told you to do it. That should be a given. Many times when people said the God told them to do something it doesn’t leave any room for another person to question them. To say why are you doing this. The Why has to be intertwined for your purpose for living.

YOUR answer should be along the vein of Esther’s call to save God’s people from utter destruction.

To move and carry the gospel message for such a time as this.

What: GOSPEL to share the good news to contradict the forces that are against God’s way

Who: Who is the big Unit the who is important strategy is attached to who and the importance of the mission relies not only on the fact that God told you to go but between point A and B is usually a gray area. In the gray area the Who is important.

Moses knew this He wanted his brother-in-law to travel with him to aide in the way to the destination where God wants you to Go.

READ SCRIPTURE

Numbers 10: 29

And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses’ father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the Lord said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the Lord hath spoken good concerning Israel.

Thus were the journeyings of the children of Israel according to their armies, when they set forward.

29 And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses’ father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the Lord said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the Lord hath spoken good concerning Israel.

Moses knew the art of war knowing unless we are familiar with the face of the country its physical landscape its mountains and forest its pitfalls and precipices its marshes and swamps he was unqualified to lead.

30 And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred.

Little is said about the disposition of Hobab (except in the Judges 4 his descendant Heber the Kenite’s wife smote Sisera (the enemy general) with a nail from the

tent through the temple as he slept.) So we know his seed survived to live in later generations

31 And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou mayest be to us instead of eyes.

Sometimes the people you work with become like family after a while and relationships develop you learn to lean on their skills and they seek your strengths also. If a carpenter walks into a room he sees the framing behind the walls If a painter walks in the room he sees the quality of the paint on the walls A plumber sees something else an electrician sees something else. Moses wanted Hobab to see for him the things that laity would not notice.

32 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what goodness the Lord shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.

Its hard to incentivize a person with an intangible promise.

You may know that the Lord is good but everyone does not share the same enthusiasm.

Sometimes asking a faithless person to have faith is an adventure in futility, Its like teaching algebra to a six-year-old algebra. It’s not that they do want it just for the sake of not wanting it is the faithless does not have the capacity to receive the same way people of faith do.

Through training you develop your faith into a greater faith

But you must first receive in a concrete way by what you see and touch and feel (Thomas) this is later developed into receiving by the word God (Centurion) and standing on it as truth.

Whereunto He called you by our Gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Before obtaining the promised land you must see the promised land you must use your imagination as a vehicle to take you there before you physically arrive.

 Who: (reiterated) Who is the big Unit the who is important strategy is attached to who and the importance of the mission relies not only on the fact that God told you to go but between point A and B is usually a gray area. In the gray area the Who is important.

Moses knew this He wanted his brother-in-law to travel with him to aide in the way to the destination where God wants you to Go.

Scripture indicates that he was a survivor from the people who knew the land. His ability to guide Israel to the promise land through difficult terrain was indispensable so Moses though.

TRUE FRIEND

But sometimes where God is taking the people you where with on your last stage are not equipped to serve along side you on your next plateau. It doesn’t mean that you are no longer friends. A true friend is a friend for life even if you haven’t spoken for a year or even five. But when you speak to them you pick back up immediately with no love lost.

Hobab was Moses homeboy he was married to his sister but Hobab said I will not go with you. Yet in Judges 6 we see that a descendant of Hobab was instrumental in providing a key victory in the slaying of Sisera when Barack had him on the run. True Friends are like quivers they are useful at a time when you need them but without asking them they just see a need and come through for you.

  Altar Call Jesus is a Friend that sticks closer than a brother

The altar was made holy and anything coming into contact with it became holy.

EXODUS 29:37

33 And they departed from the mount of the Lord three days’ journey: and the ark of the covenant of the Lord went before them in the three days’ journey, to search out a resting place for them.

Jesus is bidding you to enter his Rest

34 And the cloud of the Lord was upon them by day, when they went out of the camp.

PRAYER

35 And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, Lord, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee.

36 And when it rested, he said, Return, O Lord, unto the many thousands of Israel.

PREACHER NOTES: “Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My mouth, warn them from Me. 18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You will certainly die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to tell him to turn from his wicked way to save his life, that same evil man will die in his sin, but you will be responsible for his blood. 19 However, if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he will die in his sin; but you have [a]freed yourself [from responsibility].

Ezekiel 3:17-19

We know that the minute Moses dropped the ball so to speak and lost it as struck the rock when he was instructed to tap it. He was denied the very thing that he was leading the people to.

Nowadays we could lose our composure stop following the spirit and pick up the works of the flesh stop and be denied access to what God is leading us towards.

When walking with God you are leading others there is an army before to the side and to the rear. The ones before are those would pass on the ones to the side are your contemporaries and the ones to the rear are those who come after you if Jesus shall tarry.

When leading people, you must be honest to why you are going and where you are going answering WHY

God’s Grace begats Greatness

Then He said, I have sinned: yet honor me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord thy God.

1 Samuel 15:30

Then” indicates something happened before.

King Saul’s First plea to be a man of God

25 “Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord.

Sometimes saying I am sorry will not restore even when going to worship. People expect you because you a Christian people expect you to forgive them and receive them even when they keep doing wrong.

26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord hath rejected thee from being king over Israel. (Verdict)

27 And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent. (Force)

28 And Samuel said unto him, The Lord hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbor of thine, that is better than thou. (Reinforce Conviction)

Neighborhood was David who was already on the scene been anointed. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah,

29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent (God’s judgement is Final Disobedient must be judged when overt made public).

Main Scripture

30 Then he said, I have sinned: yet honor me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord thy God. (Wanted exception because of his position)

31 So Samuel turned again after Saul; and Saul worshipped the Lord (God receives worship as he prescribed Saul tries to deviate god’s plan).

In an effort to appear normal. Saul approached Samuel to ask him to walk with him. After his fall from grace he was stripped of authority and wanted to wrap himself with a sense of belonging by associating himself with the man of God.

PASTOR RE BOSWELL

SAULS FALL FROM GRACE

He was tall handsome looked like a king from a good family he had everything to be a good candidate for a leader when the people desired to have a king.

But it was soon discovered that he did have the right heart for the job.

The right heart for the job requires a certain grace.

A simple definition of Grace is unmerited Favor.

Something you did not work for

Something you did not earn

  • God’s Grace upon is for a purpose.
  • God’s Grace upon you is to bring first yourself then as you led by example others to WORSHIP.
  • And Worship is based in a person being appreciative or thankful.

Some people are more inclined than others to be grateful and others are unappreciatively of the favor upon their lives not fully understanding the opportunities and the blessings that you have.

When you can see them and not take them for granted.

Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.

Matthew 5:8

When you see God working in your life at times it drives you to a prostrate position of Worship. Horizontal Worship

  • Saul’s worship was based on external conditions
  • What was profitable:

Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

I Sam 15:3

Blamed it on the People:

But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly.

I Sam 15:9

He was an observer of the clouds and the wind and the rain.

yet all must learn obedience to the things of God.

Even Jesus had to learn obedience

Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Hebrews 5:8

How? By the things which you suffer!

THERE IS A SPECIAL GRACE

Even though Grace is something unearned it is still something you must do. That is to be obedient!

His Divine nature took on flesh and God suffered.

It’s the old Nurture Vs Nature argument.

Nature is something given by God.

Nurture is something that you develop over time.

When you develop both a special grace Emerges upon your life that allows favor to shine upon you.

PASTOR RE BOSWELL

This brings up my next point of Grace.

Grace can be an environment.

The scripture says that your gift will make room for you and bring you in the presence of great men.

Your gift in its raw state is a God given talent that must be developed in order to enter the presence of Great Men.

Have you ever been in the presence of the President, or the Governor or even the Mayor. A famous person, a Superstar.

Special Grace

There is a special grace that is present in that environment that for the most part is intangible but you can feel it you can’t touch it. Electricity seems to be in the air.

This a condition that few are allowed or graced to enter,

Before Esther was presented to the king she had to ___________ (read scripture).

Knowing this we should recognize that we if so graced to have a treasure in earthen vessels. The greatest gift that a man woman boy of girl could experience is the presence of God in your life.

The kingdom was ripped from saul and given to David.

One mentioned as being a Man with the Heart for God. Saul proved that he was not qualified. Even after he worshipped he went back to rebellion. Consulting the witch at Endor.

All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.  Yet when David sinned he repented and had since to let the dead rest in peace and said of his dead child you can not come to me but I must prepare my life to come to you.

If you have been graced to perform a certain task God must develop you and this can only happen if you are humble enough to receive direction from the one sent to assist you along.

You can be on the enemies team and have a special grace.

You can be a tare and God wants to recruit you.

When you see God you tend to do better in life

Another Saul with a zealous heart but on the wrong path.

Sometimes you need another person to help you get on the right path. Saul (Hebrew) Paul (Greek) was an example of this.

Saul was a up and rising star in the Jewish community committed to extinguishing the name of Jesus off the face of the earth But God.

Ananais was used by God to help Saul see.

(And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord [a]Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight)

Had different plans God uses the foolish things to confound the wise.

Like Moses erected a Brazen (bronze serpent) and whosoever shall look upon it shall live. God uses things that were abhorrent before at times without explanation: WE CAN NOT PUT GOD IN THE BOX.

Like Gideon who was confronted with leading the Israelites into battle and was instructed to send most of the people home

When God looks at number man gets in trouble.

Saul looked upon the number of Cattle and herds of the Amalikites and said someone probably said man you can sell that and buy some land or get a new carriot and SAUL LISTENED TO THE PEOPLE.

But we should trust God and follow God and when someone tells us something they will Either confirm of oppose what God has already TOLD YOU! 

In Christ the majority are those who are on the LORD’s side.

God likes to use few so you are not tempted to steal his Glory.

Therefore,

God gives you GRACE to overcome an enemy.

PASTOR RE BOSWELL

His GRACE is sufficient to maintain his GRACE, remain humble

God resists the proud to retain his grace.

Operate in Truth.

To first capture His Grace you must Have FAITH in God.

Faith is the Key that unlocks the Door to your Next Level.

Hebrew 11:6

FAITH LIKE A BIG BROTHER

Truth

Righteousness

Salvation

Every Supplication, Petition and Prayer.

The word of God.

Your faith can fight for you in every state you experience.

In the land of the living.

Let your Big Brother Fight for you.

Yes, faith has a sister her name is Charity aka sister Love.

Her last name is charity.

The last name is Action Action Charity Action Action Faith Action.

You allow Faith and Charity to work for you through you actions.

When you allow Faith and Love to work for you GRACE Emerges

The type of Grace that Stands up!

Types of Special Grace

Long Life: Nothing you can do physically to prolong your life but there are several things you can do to to keep you from dying sooner

We all have an appointment the old people called Meeting Your Maker. We Have 2 on record that have not Enoch – Elijah

And some scholars believe these are your two witnesses in the book of Revelation that were slain and laid in the streets for two day until the spirit of God raised them

God Grace is sufficient

I would Like to clarify that the one thing that you can do to prolong you life is not a physical thing like becoming a vegan or walking a mile a day drinking water. According to the command given by God when you honor your parents God with grant you long life.

HONOR

HONOR is sometimes hard for another who doesn’t understand the grace on another’s life. Empathy is difficult to conceive in a vacuum when you have your own needs wants and desires. Eg College degree respect for some one without one.

Grace misunderstood is the fundamental flaw of a ignorant Christian CLARITY: (those who fight in church)

It’s a trap door that’s carnal pitiful and seeks sympathy This happens is victimhood so you make other out to become victims because of a lack of understanding the grace on another’s.

 The Goal is to come unto God and WORSHIP HIM something that Saul failed to do from following the blueprint laid bu God prescribed by the Man of God and confirmed in your spirit.

This is what you must do regardless of whose looking who you trying to appease or what organizations you belong to. Your relation ship with God and the spiritual engineering project that you co author called your life becomes a thing of beauty over time.

ALTAR CALL 

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

1 Thessalonians 5:21
