His Hands are Outstretched Still Part 11

I am going to touch on what has happen in the United States that concerns us all. We saw John Kerry make a political remark about the lack of education of our service men going into the war in Iraq. The President and others asked him to apologize and he said, no President Bush needs to apologize for taking us into the war. As it turned out the Democrats said, Kerry needed to and he did by saying “everybody knows that I botched a joke”, explaining that he was trying to say that President Bush did not do his home work and therefore “got us stuck in Iraq.” Kerry was forced to cancel all political rallies. What a sad day for Americans for it seems like we have forgotten how to benefit one another, but we sure know how to lie about one another.

Also Ted Haggard Pastor of a 14 thousand member Church and National Association of Evangelicals President, had to resign from both bodies, as he was accused of having a tryst with Mike Jones of Denver the past 3 years and the last tryst was August. Jones is supposed to have copies of the last 3 year payments and Haggard was supposed to have taken Methamphitamin to heighten his experience. Ted Haggard is making sure the Church is not going to become involved so stepped down while the investigation is coducted into the matter.

I am amazed of what is going on today and I know that we are going to have to wait for the final outcome/verdict. Satan is alive on planet earth and everyone has to be responsible for what they hear and what they think. We had better make sure we are abiding in the vine, or we to are going to perish and fail.

Now lets notice Noah, he took food for the animals and for the humans aboard, just as God has given us all we need in this world in which we live to survive.  Gen 6:22 (NKJV) Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did. This is grace at the greatest degree, God told him to built an ark, how long, how wide, how high and then he told him to get his family in and all animal life. Noah did not argue with God. Note what is happening today in many Churches, people are arguing over the music played, the way the preachers preaches, the way the service is arranged, the atmosphere casue by lighting effects and the way people are respecting the Church and one another. No one seems to understand the Lords will for our lives and we say, everyone is entitled to their opinion. That is not what Noah understood, for he heard God speak to him exactly how big the boat was to be and who was to get aboard. We see daily people that want to argue with God as if they were in control and get them into trouble every time.

Gen 7:1 (NKJV)  1 Then the Lord said to Noah, "Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. Noah was Gods chosen man for such a time as this, because he was holy in his generation. Can’t you see Noah reaching out his hands to his world where he lived? This was the first boat to be constructed and it must of appeared foolish being built in a desert place. But God was getting ready to show His hands outstretched still and the people could not accept what Noah was telling them as he worked on the Ark. Every board, every peg must of cried out, I’m getting ready to save you. Just as today the Church is crying out, come unto the Lord of Glory, He will heal you marriage, heal your sickness from addictions of sin. Come abide in me; Noah is being asked of God to Come into the ark, along with his household. In  John 15: 16 the Lord is saying, Ye have not chosen me I have chosen you and ordained you that you should bring forth fruit and your fruit should remain that whatsoever you ask of the Father in my name, He will give it unto you. Noah obeyed the Lord, he was holy and his family was saved because of who Noah was; righteous. Parents you will never know the influence you have on your children as you serve the Lord, they are not automatically saved, but the way they are taught is not going to be void. You do make a difference as you serve the Lord and work for the Kingdom of God. It is not easy serving the Lord doing what He tells us to do, but Noah worked and told others about what was going to happen and it fell on deaf ears. Can’t you see the mocking and ridicule Noah and his family had to endure. But God Hands where out stretched still and God said, its time, come on in.

Now we come to the most important part of Gods plan the size of the ark which we see in Gen 6:15-16 (NCV) 15 This is how big I want you to build the boat: four hundred fifty feet long, seventy-five feet wide, and forty-five feet high. 16 Make an opening around the top of the boat that is eighteen inches high from the edge of the roof down. Put a door in the side of the boat. Make an upper, middle, and lower deck in it. Does this sound like God did all the work? No, God expects you and I, just as Noah to build upon His foundation according to His blue print. We need to work out our salvation with fear and trembling ,for salvation is not easy. It requires I obey and understand God has provided for me, just as He did Noah the material to work with. God has shown us grace from the time we are born to the time we die, but many do not enjoy there salvation expecting God to do it all. Note it is not a sail boat, for it had no where to go ashore it was powerless, God alone was in control. Gods instructions are simple, build a boat 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, forty five feet high and make a opening at the top for a window 18 inches at the edge of the roof. Could it be God wanted Noah and his family to see what was going on? Are we seeing what is going on today as we are apart of the life of the Church, or are we locked in with no widows? God wants us to see clearly in order that we can be assured of His protection, when all around us is perishing, for we are safe and secure in the Out stretched arms of the Lord. Drakes Translation says the windows were placed to offer light on all three decks, and it had ventilation for all the fowl air to get out and it had a sanitation system equal to none. Isn’t it just like God to take care of all areas of our lives if we let Him?

 Put a door in the side of the boat for people and animals to enter in. Doesn’t the Lord say He is the door and all we need to do is enter in and we will be saved? Many religions are saying, if you do not serve my god, you need to be killed. That is what is going on with the terrorist, they can’t stand freedom, they want us to be like them and their gods. Lord help us, to stand up for the right, for you are the truth, the way and the life. Lets enter in at our free will, into his glory and grace, that is a choice we all have to make. It is not drugs, alcohol, sex, pleasure, or any thing else that rescues us from the sins of the World, it's only God who sent us Jesus as the door.

We see the boat had three decks which had a portion designated for each animal, so not a one would be in danger. It is just like Jesus to make sure every Christian has space to worship the Lord in a way that pleases God. We need to value one another as Christians regardless of denomination, for it is not a religious bend we need, but bent on serving the Lord of Glory. Look around and we see mega Churches, but do we see mega works among Christians? Yes we see people involved in ministering to aids and the poor, but do we see them offering salvation as the alternative from poverty and aids? We see more people addicted and codependent than any time in my life to religion and very little works. Anyone involved with addictions knows the first thing to understand is they need Help from the Lord, and when it is admitted the Lord is the one able to deliver them and set them free, so they can be restored.  Just as the people where encouraged to enter the boat, so today people are warned there is going to be a tribulation soon and you had better prepare to meet you God? Lord help, me to get a fresh anointing every day, so I can proclaim Jesus is coming again. As we watched THE Sun Fair Parade in Yakima Saturday the 23rd, one of the gentlemen who spent time in the God Pod was marching and singing a song, Jesus love me this I know. He came close to Ginny and I and told us, he was still walking with the Lord and felt he needed to tell every one about Jesus loving them. I encouraged him to continue to walk with the Lord, for the Lord is the answer for all our problems, he had the greatest smile shining for the Lord. Noah must of felt like the only one that was following the Lord, but he continue to follow the Lords direction and did not give up.

Are we not seeing a flood of wrath through out the world today toward the Christians and those that love freedom of worship? Worship should never be forced upon us, or it is very cruel and many get hurt. Let’s make sure we have the robe of righteousness on at all times, so we can walk in a state of perfection. Not in our self belief, but in our belief in Gods Word for our lives. Look around and who is helping those that are hurting in our world because of sin. Is it not the Church world bringing aid, that is far greater than any government is able to give. The United States is a giving nation, and we have helped our enemies more than once, not because we had to, but wanted to. That is the Christians desire and it seems like now when the United States gives, it is many times falling into the hands of the enemy to destroy us. Lord, help us to continue to help those in need, so we will again be blessed as a nation and a Church.

Noah walked with God, what a statement for isn’t that what Adam was doing in the garden until he listen to his wife and took what she gave him with out any questions? I know that as parents we need to ask our kids questions, so they can get the answers from us, rather than from the enemy of our souls. Parents we have a task to complete if we are going to see God bless our families. We are role models for either wickedness, or Godliness? Your kids are going to become just like you and who you put your trust in. I deal with men and women who have not had a functional family as a Chaplain and hear stories that are very hard to believe. How do people act like pigs, or dogs at times? What goes on within the heart of men and women that allows them to think that addictions are ok? How can we be so insane to think that the next time, it is going to have different effects upon my life? The people in Noah’s time thought what they were doing was ok, he is a fool. Is it not true, you can fool a person some of the time but not all the time? People that are addicted to sin, are not able to see how they look in a mirror, for they are ashamed to see reality. I have taught imagination, timse vividness, equals reality, and people look at me as if I was grazie. Look at how the people saw Noah, building a ship/boat in the desert, what a ridicules imagination. There is no water here, this is insane. This was not hard to see vividly, for it was true, it is desert and we don’t have any water standing here. Reality is always true regardless of how we might feel, for it is what you see, hear, feel, taste and smell, if all body parts are working properly. What Noah was able to do is listen to the Lord, then trust the Lord with his imagination when it was out of the ordinary. He saw things in the Spirit and did not let the doubters destroy what he heard and was doing. The closer he got to finishing the project the greater the reality of knowing Gods plan for His creation.
