"KNOWING YOUR DIRECTION"
Pastor Johnson’s message came from John 17:13-19, Ephesians 6:11-17, and 1 John 5:17-21. The topic was “Knowing Your Direction” with the following sub topics:
“Not of the World”
Jesus is praying for us to have a powerful faith. God’s grace is sufficient no matter what you are going through. We have God’s word that we may not be of the world. Jesus prays we be taken out of the world and that we keep from evil. The truth of God’s word cleanses us. Jesus wants to sanctify us through the faith of the word. Get sanctified by growth and holiness in God’s word.
“Protection from the World”
In order to be holy, we need the whole armour of God to be able to stand against Satan. We are fighting against something we cannot see. We are fighting against temptations Satan is putting out there for us. We must fight with God’s words and truth to be holy. Stand on the word of God no matter what happens in life. You cannot stand unless you have righteousness in you. Come to God with a breastplate of righteousness. If you don’t have righteousness; you don’t have God’s approval. We have to strive to get that powerful faith. Satan is going to throw everything at you. The word of God has to be within you. This is your protection. No weapons can form against you.
“Sin in the World”
All unrighteousness is sin. That who is born of God does not practice sins. The world is no good, wicked. Son of God has come to help us understand the Truth so that we may have eternal life.
Other scriptures shared:
Homosexuality is an enormous sin. It is an abomination.
The penalty for homosexual acts is death. Man should not have sexual intercourse with a woman and her mother. Neither man nor woman should have intercourse with an animal.
No woman should sell her body to get things she needs. You must not bring to the Lord any offering from the earnings of a prostitute or a homosexual for both are detestable to the Lord.
1 Kings 14:24
There was homosexuality throughout the land, and the people of Judah became as depraved as the heathen nations which the Lord drove out to make room for his people.
1 Corinthians 6:9-12
Doing these such things cannot get into the kingdom of heaven. They are living immoral lives, idol worshipers, adulterers, homosexuals, thieves, greedy people, drunkards, slanderers, or robbers. There is forgiveness for these acts through Jesus Christ.
God is not pleased with whoremongers and prostitutes or anything that is contrary to sound doctrine.
Please read the scriptures and be blessed!
