“CONSIDER THE HURRICANE”
INTRO: One mandate for every child of God is to LOOK AT EVERYTHING THROUGH THE EYES OF THE SCRIPTURE. In other words, we are to yield our thoughts, actions, attitudes, and daily living according to the BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW! Today let’s look at a HURRICANE through the eyes of the WORD OF GOD.

INTRO: Where were you on September 11, 2001? That was the day when the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA was attacked by foreign enemies who hate us. Most of us can remember very clearly where we were and what we were doing on that terrible day when nearly 3000 of out citizens were killed and many injured…Shortly after 9/11/01 leaders of our government came to realize that we needed to examine and enhance our DEFENSE SYSTEM to prevent our nation from being attacked in such a surprising and terrible way again. Consequently, THE HOMELAND SECURITY DIVI11ON OF OUR GOVERNMENT WAS ESTABLIASHED, and former PA Governor Tom Ridge became the first director. We can only hope that we have a STRONG DEFENSE SYSTEM THAT WILL PREVENT ANOTHER 9/11. Today as we think back 21 years let us consider what it takes to PROTECT AMERICA.

“WALKING WORTHY OF GOD”
1 THESSALONIANS 2:10-12
TEXT: VERSE 12
INTRO: In our study of 1 Thessalonians, we have come to a verse of scripture that is only 16 words in length but possibly contains one of the MOST SIGNIFICANT CHALLENGES FOR THE CHRISTIAN TO CONSIDER IN ALL OF THE WORD OF GOD. I say that because the theme of this verse will PROPERLY AND EFFECTIVELTY guide the BELIEVER into living the kind of life that is totally pleasing to the Lord. From this verse I get the sermon title “WALKING WORTHY OF GOD.”

“A NATION INHERITED – A NATION TO REVIVE – A NATION TO PASS ON”
INTRO: For those of us who live in America, we HONESTLY MUST SAY that we have INHERITED A GREAT NATION.
In the history of the world there has never been a nation like the U.S.A. and that is because GOD IN ETERNITY
PAST, DETERMINED WHO HE WOULD RAISE UP TO “DISCOVER” THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE, TO EXPLORE THE
TWO GREAT CONTINENTS OF THE HEMISPHERE, AND TO FOUND THE NATIONS ON THE TWO GREAT CONTINENTS
OF THE HEMISPHERE. (23 ON NORTH AMERICA AND 14 ON SOUTH AMERICA). Regarding the U.S.A., God RAISED
UP those seeking for RELIGIOUS FREEDOM to come to these shores as early as the 1500’s followed by the
PURITANS, THE PILGRIMS, and others, who, ever since, were and are looking for the FREEDOM AMERICA HAS TO
OFFER. In 1776 God raised up 56 MEN to sign the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, who, UNDER GOD, laid the
foundation for the GREATEST NATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. America quickly rose up BY GOD’S GRACE.
BUT within 100 years of her founding, through DARWINIAN SECULARISM, THE WEAKENING OF THE PULPIT, THE
COMPROMISE OF THE CHURCH, AND THE WORLDLINESS OF THE CHRISTIAN, she began to turn away from God
WHO BROUGHT HER INTO EXISTENCE. We have INHERITED A GREAT NATION, but NOW, FOR SUCH A TIME AS
THIS, GOD HAS PLACED YOU AND ME ON THIS CONTINENT AND IN THIS NATION TO REVIVE AMERICA AND TO
PASS IT ON TO THE GENERATIONS TO FOLLOW UNTIL CHRIST RETURNS.

“A VICTORY HAS BEEN WON – WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?”
GENESIS 1:26,27; 2:7; DEUTERONOMY 30:19; PSALM 139:12-18; JEREMIAH 1:5
INTRO: As I stand in this pulpit today, on June 26, 2022, it is my great honor to announce to you that “ROE V. WADE, THAT LEGALIZED ABORTION, IS NO MORE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!” In what took place in the United States Supreme Court on Friday June 24, 2022, we have evidence that GOD IS STILL ON THE THRONE AND THAT HE IS DOING SOMETHING IN AMERICA AND IN RESPONSE TO WHAT GOD IS DOING, WE NEED TO PRAISE HIM AND GET ON BOARD WITH WHAT HE IS DOING!
Today my message title is “A VICTORY HAS BEEN WON – WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?”

“A CALL FOR MEN TO UNDERSTAND THE TIMES AND RESPOND BIBLICALLY”
1 CHRONICLES 12:32
(A FATHER'S DAY SERMON)
INTRO: It is hard to believe that we have come to another FATHER'S DAY, but the fact is true, THAT WE HAVE. On this FATHER'S DAY we truly do want to HONOR ALL FATHERS…particularly those who know and love the Lord. HOW CAN WE HONOR OUR FATHERS? 1) Through Obedience. 2) Through Respect. 3) Through Prayer, 4) Through Physical Care. 5) Through Spiritual Encouragement. 6) Through Financial Support. BUT IN TODAY’S MESSAGE, I believe the Lord has led us to focus on the fact that due to the circumstances of the times in which we live, WE NEED MEN OF A UNIQUE QUALITY AND CHARACTER who Understand the Times, Know what to do in these Times, and then will Lead others properly in these Times. In doing so, LET’S GO BACK ABOUT 3000 YEARS to when DAVID began to reign over Israel and learn from the SONS OF ISSACHAR about the QUALITY AND CHARACTER MEN SHOULD DEVELOP for SUCH A TIME AS THIS!

“BELIEVING IS SEEING”
1 THESSALONIANS 2:13
INTRO: In our last study from 1 Thessalonians, we focused on CHAPTER 2 and VERSE 13 that speaks of the
effectual working of the WORD OF GOD upon the lives of those who BELIEVE. You may recall that in that
study we learned three things:
1) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE WORD OF GOD, NOT THE WORD OF MEN
2) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE TRUTH OF GOD, AND IS ABSOLUTE TRUTH
3) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE OPERATION OF GOD, ACTIVELY ENERGIZING BELIEVERS
Today we are going to return to 1 Thessalonians 2:13 so as to focus on ONE SMALL WORD THAT BRINGS
ONE HUGE EFFECT upon those who practice it. It is the very last word of the verse…” BELIEVE.” The title
of the message today is “BELIEVING IS SEEING.” The point of the message is BELIEF IN THE RIGHT THING
ALWAYS RESULTS IN SEEING THE DIVINE THING. In other words, WHEN WE TRULY BELIEVE PROPERLY, WE
WILL TRULY SEE THE EFFECTUAL WORKING OF GOD IN OUR LIVES.
NOTE: “BELIEVE” in the verse is “PISTEUO” in the Greek which means “TO COMMIT OR TO HAVE FULL
A REMINDER: The Bible DOES NOT JUST CONTAIN the Word of God…The Bible IS the Word of God. (Isaiah
55:11; Jeremiah 15:16; John 17:17; 1 Peter 1:23-25)

“PREVENTING AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL FROM BECOMING AMERICA THE SORROWFUL”
INTRO: Often during PATRIOTIC SERVICES we sing the song “AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL.” I love that song as it speaks of the GREAT QUALITIES of our nation FROM the geographical beauty it has, TO the freedoms we have, TO the hero’s who died for those freedoms, FOR the patriotism many hold and to the blessings God has poured out upon the nation. GOD HAS SHED HIS GRACE ON AMERICA! But in recent weeks we have come FACE TO FACE with the reality that AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL IS BECOMING AMERICA THE SORROWFUL. Now even though that could apply to a number of things, the mass shootings we have experienced recently are TRULY SORROWFUL.

“THE EFFECT OF THE SCRIPTURE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO BELIEVE IT”
1 THESSALONIANS 2:13
INTRO: Over the years in my pastoral ministry, I have received the following statements from people regarding the Word of God:
1) Pastor, I try to read the Bible but never get anything from it.
2) Pastor, I get so much out of the Bible I never want to put it down.
WHY IS THERE SUCH A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE’S RESPONSES WHO CLAIM TO KNOW THE LORD REGARDING WHAT THEY GET FROM THE SCRIPTURE?
● Perhaps one is NOT REALLY SAVED
● Perhaps one is NOT REALLY INTERESTED IN HEARING FROM GOD
● Perhaps one DOES NOT REALLY BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD
● Perhaps one is SAVED AND WANTS TO HEAR FROM GOD
BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU? WHAT DO YOU GET FROM THE BIBLE DAILY? Today we are going to study from 1 Thessalonians HOW EFFECTIVE THE WORD OF GOD IS in the lives of those who TRULY BELIEVE IT.
