TEXT: Matthew 10:24-33

24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

———-

Paul Chappell said, “Fear of man is the enemy of the fear of the Lord. The fear of man pushes us to perform for man’s approval rather than according to God’s directives.”

In our last message we looked at how we should expect to face persecution in this world, knowing that Jesus also faced extreme opposition from the people He came to save. Since we are the servants and disciples of Christ, we should not expect any better treatment than what He received. Instead, we should expect and be ready for persecution when it comes, while continuing to do what He has called us to do.

Now Jesus gives us reasons why we should remain steadfast in persecution without fearing those who are attacking us.

First of all, we should not fear them because “there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed.” Warren Wiersbe said of this passage, “The enemies of Christ use secret and deceptive means to oppose the Gospel. But true believers are open and courageous in their lives and witness. We have nothing to hide. False witnesses lied about Jesus during His trial, but God saw to it that the truth came out. We have nothing to fear because the Lord will one day reveal the secrets of men’s hearts and expose them and judge them. Our task is not to please men, but to proclaim God’s message.” Just as Jesus has been vindicated in history so that millions of people remember Him as a wise teacher and believe in Him as Saviour rather than know him only as a criminal executed by the Roman empire, even though persecuted Christians may be seens as criminals now, they will be known as faithful and true by God in eternity.

Second of all, we should not fear them because even though they can kill the body, they cannot kill the soul. The only thing that persecutors have to leverage against Christians is pain in this world, but we have an eternity of peace to look forward to. Warren Wiersbe said, “The present judgment of men does not frighten us, because we are living in the light of the future judgment of God. We fear God alone. All that men can do is kill the body; and, if they do, the believer’s soul goes home to be with the Lord. But God is able to destroy both body and soul in hell! Of course, God will never condemn one of His own children. Martin Luther caught this truth when he wrote: Let goods and kindred go, This mortal life also; The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still; His kingdom is forever. The person who fears God alone need never fear any man or group of men. The fear of God is the fear that cancels fear.”

God is the only Being who has power over the state of the soul after death. The Bible teaches that us that God will bring those who have trusted Christ as Saviour, while the souls of those who rejected Him will be cast into hell. That is the only way as soul can die — by being cut off from the creator God and His love. Furthermore, the Bible tells us that those who endured persecution and faithfully preached the Gospel and advanced the kingdom of Heaven on earth will be the beneficiaries of special blessings in the new Heaven and new Earth. If we are concerned primarily about our souls, which will last for all eternity, over our bodies, which will rot into nothing, we will fear God rather than man. In the words of Matthew Henry, “Let Christ’s ministers faithfully reveal his truths, and then leave it to him, in due time, to reveal their integrity.”

Henry Francis Lyte wrote:

Jesus, I my cross have taken,
all to leave and follow thee;
destitute, despised, forsaken,
thou from hence my all shalt be.
Perish ev’ry fond ambition,
all I’ve sought or hoped or known;
yet how rich is my condition,
God and heav’n are still my own.

Let the world despise and leave me,
they have left my Savior too;
human hearts and looks deceive me;
thou art not, like man, untrue;
and, while thou shalt smile upon me,
God of wisdom, love, and might,
foes may hate and friends may shun me;
show thy face, and all is bright.

Hasten on from grace to glory,
armed by faith and winged by prayer;
heaven’s eternal days before thee,
God’s own hand shall guide thee there.
Soon shall close thy earthly mission,
swift shall pass thy pilgrim days;
hope soon change to glad fruition,
faith to sight, and prayer to praise.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at dw3@gospellightsociety.com and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please e-mail that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

The Church Must Unhitch Itself From W.E.B. DuBois’ Problem of the Color Line, Part 10 // (The Lost Souls of Black Folk and White Folk, Part 64) [Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 818 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 1,183 since Jan. 1, 2016]

TEXT: Acts 17:26-28

26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

—————-

The story is told that, shortly after the close of the Civil War, a black man entered a prominent church in Richmond, Virginia, at the beginning of a communion service. When the time came to partake of the Lord’s Supper, he walked down the aisle and knelt at the altar. A rustle of shock and anger swept through the congregation. But a distinguished white layman immediately stood up, stepped forward to the altar and knelt beside this colored man. That layman was the former leader of a Confederate army, Robert E. Lee. It is said that the rest of the white congregation followed his example.

As we seek to do away with the “problem of the color line,” we have learned two things that are helpful to our understanding of the issue of race from Paul’s speech to the Athenians: First, that all nations — that is, all ethnicities — are made from one blood. We are all part of the same family; we have the same human ancestor, and, if you will, the same divine Ancestor, for as Luke writes in the geneology of Jesus Christ: Adam was the son of God. Second, we learn that God determines where we live and the time period in which we live, and thus the people we live around whether we are part of the privileged or under-privileged, the majority or the minority. As Christians, it is our job to love our neighbors and live at peace with all people no matter their race, ethnicity, nationality, culture, language, or status in society.

The third thing we learn from Paul’s speech is what we ought to be doing instead of getting caught up in temporal mortal divisions. Verse 27 says, “That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him.” In his commentary on the book of Acts, Victor Gotthard writes: “After having spoken of the life of nations (or ethnicities), Paul refers to the life of the individual and sets forth the loftiest aim of man: that is to seek God, with whom he is closely and intimately connected. It was the design of the divine arrangement of the nations that they should seek the Lord of heaven and earth. However, this does not indicate a seeking merely after the knowledge of God, but also after a living and essential union with Him.”

You see, once we get connected with God through Jesus Christ, once we get into a living and essential union with Him, He will change our hearts regarding racial matters. Seeking racial reconciliation is a worthy goal — especially in the church. But a better goal is to seek the Lord and the breaking down of divisions which comes through people gathering at the common ground of the Lord’s Supper. In this communion, in this community, we each realize that our greatest similarity to each other is that we are all sinners in need of the Savior. And once we get the sin problem under the blood, none of our other colors will matter.

——-

If you are a Christian listening today, here are three things you need to do:

1. Confess and repent of your own sins. You already know what they are.

2. Pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ to repent of their sins and get back to their first love

3. Pray for souls to be saved, and do your part by witnessing to the lost.

TEXT: Isaiah 1:1-20

1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.

4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

5 Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

9 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

——-

Bruce Wilkinson said, “Repentance means you change your mind so deeply that it changes you.”

What else does God expect from His people as proof of their repentance. Along with learning to do well, pursuing fair treatment of all, and relieving the oppressed, the Lord says, “judge the fatherless” and “plead for the widow.” The fatherless and the widow were two of the most vulnerable classes in Jewish society. Because lineage was highly regarded, a child who could not name his or her father was considered a nobody. They had no family ties that they could lean on and no inheritance that they could claim, dooming them to a lifetime of indebtedness, poverty, and servanthood. A woman whose husband had died — and who had no other family to take care of her — was likewise without protection in the public eye. Because of the male-oriented society of that time, only the husband’s voice was respected as the arbiter of the family’s affairs. Widows were often taken advantage of by corrupt merchants and lenders who knew that their voice would not be considered in a court of law. Even in Jesus’ day, the Lord rebuked the scribes and Pharisees for ‘taking advantage of widows and robbing them of their homes, and then making a show of saying long prayers.’ This is the kind of behavior that was going on in ancient Israel.

When the Lord commanded His people to judge the fatherless, he was telling them to treat the fatherless fairly — to treat them as they would want their own children to be treated. Likewise for the widow: instead of taking advantage of widows, the Lord wanted the people of Israel to stand up and “plead” in the widows behalf. A repentant Israeli society would find families adopting fatherless children and raising them as their own, giving them a chance to succeed in life. A repentant Israeli society would have men stepping up defend widows’ interests to ensure that they were not taken advantage of.

I think it is fair to say that, largely, Christian in America have the right attitude to the fatherless and the widow. For example, statistics show that 5% of practicing Christian adults in the U.S. have adopted a child, which is double the rate of non-Christian adults. Also 38% of practicing Christians have seriously considered adoption, compared to 26% of the general population. However, as a body of believers, we can do more.

According to an Associated Press story last week, a prominent Christian “evangelical” organization, the Faith & Freedom Coalition, is going to spend $50 million for get-out-the-vote efforts in 2020. Now, imagine how much could be done if that money were spent to build up the Kingdom of God instead of pursuing partisan political victories to build up the kingdom of man. Imagine the homes and schools that could be built for orphaned children. Imagine the care that could be provided for widows. Imagine the accommodations that could be built for migrants crossing the border. Imagine the number of families that could be lifted out of poverty in our churches today. Imagine the mission trips that could be funded abroad and the evangelistic efforts that could be carried out at home.

Now, we ought not to sit in judgment and say they ought to do more, because each of us will answer to God for how we spend the resources that He has given us. And the truth is that most of us in the church today are not doing all that we could do. Our actions are the only ones that we have control over. So, we must individually decide to repent of our carelessness and callousness toward others, and do what we can to pursue fair treatment of all, to relieve the oppressed, to treat the fatherless fairly, and to stand in defense of widows and all those who are at a disadvantage in our society. James 1:27 says, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep ourselves unspotted from the world.”

Fred Pratt Green wrote:

When the church of Jesus shuts its outer door,
lest the roar of traffic drown the voice of prayer:
may our prayers, Lord, make us ten times more aware
that the world we banish is our Christian care.

If our hearts are lifted where devotion soars
high above this hungry suffering world of ours:
lest our hymns should drug us to forget its needs,
forge our Christian worship into Christian deeds.

Lest the gifts we offer, money, talents, time,
serve to salve our conscience, to our secret shame:
Lord, reprove, inspire us by the way You give;
teach us, dying Savior, how true Christians live.

13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

In a recent op-ed for USA Today, David Curry, president of the persecution aid organization, Open Doors USA, wrote: “The leadership of the American church, with its superpastors and megachurches, is whistling through the graveyard. The beast that we have created, which relies on upbeat music and positivity to attract donors to sustain large budgets, leaves little room for pastors to talk about the suffering of global Christians. Like most of the culture, the American church is more concerned about college entrance scandals and ‘Game of Thrones’ than persecution. Inoculated by entertainment and self-absorption, they are completely detached from the experience of the global church. The American church is feeding itself to death while the worldwide church is being murdered.”

Curry’s words point out just one of the sins that we in the American church need to repent of. God commands us to “seek judgment” and “relieve the oppressed,” yet most of us in the prosperous West show a tremendous lack of concern about the suffering of those who are supposed to be our brothers and sisters.

Without true repentance, there is no need for us to come into the Lord’s presence. In fact, it is dangerous spiritually and physically. Many people assume that the reason why Ananias and Sapphira were killed when they came into the Lord’s presence was simply because they had sold their land for a certain amount and brought less than that amount to the church pretending that they were giving the whole amount. But, if we look at the passage in its context, we will see that the root cause of their sin is hypocrisy. When they heard about Barnabas and the other saints who sold their land and property and brought the proceeds — all of the proceeds — to the church, causing much rejoicing and much benefit for poor believers, they coveted that for themselves. They wanted to be seen as benefactors in the local body. They were hypocritical, setting themselves up to be seen as something they were not. Like the Jewish religious leaders that Jesus so-often rebuked, they wanted the praise of man but not the substance of truth. They came in to the house of God trying to portray themselves as saintly and charitable givers when their hearts were deceitful and corrupt. They appeared clean on the outside, but had not been washed and clean on the inside.

When John the Baptist was ministering before Jesus’ first public activity, he preached what the Bible calls “the baptism of repentance.” John could not make people repent. He could not make people turn their lives around any more than he could make someone get in the water to be baptized. The people had to choose to get in the water of their own accord. On top of that, John told them to “bring forth fruits meet for repentance.” In other words, getting in the water was not enough. Getting in the water was symbolic. The people had to come to the water intent on repenting and they had to leave the water determined to act in a way that demonstrated their repentance.

That is what God is telling Israel (and the church) to do in this passage. He is saying, “Don’t take a shower and go play in the mud again. Take a shower and live a clean life.”

Charles Wesley wrote:

Weary of wandering from my God,
And now made willing to return
I hear and bow me to the rod
For thee, not without hope, I mourn:
I have an Advocate above
A Friend before the throne of love.

O Jesus, full of truth and grace
More full of grace than I of sin
Yet once again I seek Thy face:
Open Thine arms and take me in
And freely my backslidings heal
And love the faithless sinner still.

The stone to flesh again convert,
The veil of sin again remove;
Sprinkle Thy blood upon my heart,
And melt it by Thy dying love;
This rebel heart by love subdue,
And make it soft, and make it new.

If you are a Christian listening today, here are three things you need to do:

1. Confess and repent of your own sins. You already know what they are.

2. Pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ to repent of their sins and get back to their first love

3. Pray for souls to be saved, and do your part by witnessing to the lost.

——-

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

TEXT: Isaiah 1:1-20

1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.

4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

5 Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

9 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

——-

John R. W. Stott said, “Sin and the child of God are incompatible. They may occasionally meet; they cannot live together in harmony.”

Verse 7 of this passage appears to recount the aftermath of a devastating invasion. In 701 BC, the Assyrian army attacked Judah leaving behind a trail of destruction described by the Lord in this passage: “Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.” The Assyrian attack on Judah was exactly the kind of punishment God had warned His children that they would receive from the time of the Exodus.

After the Assyrian invasion, God asks, “Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more.” In other words, God is saying, “What’s the point of more punishment? You’re only going to rebel again.” What this verse points out is that, normally, punishment ought to lead to repentance. However, it seems as if the more Israel is punished, the more they rebel. This is evidence of a deeper problem: the Lord says, “The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.” From top to bottom, Israel has been corrupted. If she weren’t so far gone, she would have recognized her punishment as from the Lord and would have repented accordingly as she had done many times in the past. But now she seems unable to recognize her own waywardness.

Repeated disobedience results in callousness to the Word of God, and continued stubbornness eventually causes callousness to God’s punishment. We become like those “hypocrites” Paul writes of in First Timothy who had remained in their disobedience for so long that their consciences became “seared as with a hot iron.” We become unable to feel the Lord’s presence and unwilling to respond reasonably to His pleas and punishment. If we are honest, most of us can identify areas in our lives where we have grown resistant toward the Lord. There are things happening in our churches that have gone on so long that we no longer consider them sin. We must determine to open our eyes to the Word of God and plead with the Holy Spirit to reveal every glimmer of darkness that we might repent of it before it is too late.

Fanny Crosby wrote:

Like a wayward child I wandered
From my Father’s house away,
But I hear His voice entreating,
And I’m coming home today.

I have wandered in the darkness,
And my path was lone and drear,
But my Father did not leave me,
He was watching ever near.

I will ask Him to forgive me
For the wrong that I have done,
To receive, accept, and bless me,
Through His well beloved Son.

Yes, I’m coming home,
No longer will I roam;
I am sad and broken hearted,
But now I’m coming home!

TEXT: Matthew 10:1-4

1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;

4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

——-

R.T. France said, “There is a striking parallel between the mission of the disciples and that of Jesus himself. The words they preach are the same as Jesus’ words. And their acts of healing cover practically all the types of Jesus’ healing miracles. Their mission is an extension of his, for which they are vested with his authority.”

In our last message from this passage, we dealt with the underlying principle in all of the efforts of the messengers of Christ. That underlying principle and driving force is the power of God. Jesus gave His disciples power before sending them out on their evangelistic mission. And it is only through His power that they were able to cast out unclean spirits to heal diseases and to preach the Gospel. As we continue looking at the instructions that Jesus gives His disciples, we notice three principles that we can apply to our own lives as messengers of Christ.

First, the messengers of Christ go where He tells them. Jesus could have told His disciples to go wherever they wanted as long as they preached the Gospel. But Jesus gave them specific instructions on where to go and where not to go. “Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Jesus had a specific reason for His messengers to go to the Jews with the Gospel first. He Himself had told the Samaritan woman that “salvation is of the Jews” and it was only right that they receive every opportunity to accept their promised Messiah first. This likely made sense to the nationalist-minded Jewish disciples who repeatedly expressed concern in the gospels about the “house of Israel” being restored.

Robert Gundry writes in his commentary, “The prohibition against taking a road into any Gentile territory and against entering any Samaritan city limit the twelve apostles initially to Galilee and to the Jews living there. Thus the apostles’ ministry follows the pattern of Jesus’ ministry, which began in Galilee. This correlation will be strengthened later by the stated limitation of his ministry ‘to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.’ Exceptionally, some Gentiles do believe in Jesus during His ministry; but a planned mission to Gentiles doesn’t start until after the Jewish authorities have engineered His crucifixion and He has risen from the dead—that is, not until the kingdom has been transferred to the church. The present limitation belongs to an initial stage alone, and rests on the correlation between the ministries of Jesus and the Twelve. Like teacher, like disciples.”

Today, our world is much larger than that of the Twelve Disciples. On a daily basis, you and I are likely to cross paths with people from more nationalities and ethnic groups than the disciples would have met in a lifetime. If the call of evangelism has been placed on your life — and, in some sense, it has been placed on all of our lives — you may become concerned about trying to reach everyone with the Gospel. Logically, it is impossible for you to reach all people, or even all people groups, with the Gospel. But, with God, all things are possible, and that is why He directs His messengers and missionaries to specific people groups through prayer, through assignment, through circumstance, and through the leading of the Holy Spirit.

We see this principle at work in Acts 16, where Paul and Silas were on a missionary journey through modern-day Turkey. After going through Galatia, Luke writes that they “were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia.” So, they decided to go to Bythinia, but again, “the Spirit suffered them not.” So, they went to Troas, and as they stayed the night there, Paul heard the famous Macedonian call. In a dream, a Macedonian man came to him, saying, “Come over and help us.” Luke writes, “Immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.”

Did the people of Asia and Bythinia need to hear the Gospel? Of course. But, at this time, God wanted Paul and Silas to preach the Gospel in Macedonia. When God has called you to a specific location or group of people, it is not for you to be concerned about what is happening at other locations or with other groups of people. It is not for you to tell God, “Well, what about these people?” or, “What about this task?” We all ought to be concerned that the Gospel reach the whole world. But God wants the whole world to hear the Gospel infinitely more than we do. If everyone in the church answered their calling and abided in their calling and station of ministry, God’s work would be done and everyone who needs to hear the Gospel will hear it. The messengers of Christ go where He tells them.

Fanny Crosby wrote:

Christians, wake, no longer sleep;
Shall we rest while others weep?
Shall we sit with folded hands
When the Lord Himself commands?

Go and work! this hour begin;
Go and seek the lost to win;
From the dark abodes of sin,
To the feast, oh, bring them in!

Do we love the Savior’s name?
Can our faith His promise claim?
Have we pledged to Him our all?
Shall we not obey His call?

There’s a cross that we must bear
If the crown we hope to wear:
Onward, then, with vigor new;
Time is short, the days are few.

Go and work! this hour begin;
Go and seek the lost to win;
From the dark abodes of sin,
To the feast, oh, bring them in!

Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign

Daniel Whyte III continues the daily Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign sermon series, which is aimed at sharing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with unbelievers and reminding Christians to keep the main thing the main thing — and that is reaching unbelievers with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and praying for their salvation, for the problem in America is not only disobedient presidents and politicians but disobedient pastors, preachers, and parishioners who have refused to obey God’s Great Commission and who have refused to obey God’s repeated commands to “pray without ceasing” for unbelievers, believers, and political leaders. Yes, you should pray for the right candidate to win; yes, you should vote for the candidate that the Lord gives you peace about voting for. But, don’t get caught up in it like the world does. Nothing much is going to change until people get saved and get their hearts right with the Lord.

This campaign is inspired by the following three verses: 1 Corinthians 2:2 which says, “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” Acts 5:42 which says, “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” And 2 Timothy 2:4 which says, “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”

This series is not for Christians necessarily. Hopefully, you are one of those who love to hear the old, old story told again and again. As the hymn says, “I love to tell the story, for those who know it best / Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.” But, this series is primarily for unbelievers, so they can hear and understand the Gospel and be saved.
