Matthew7_24

Hello and welcome to Our Church Without Walls.
I’m preaching this Sunday on THE SMART-HOUSE PROJECT

This is PART FOUR

I am greatly blessed to share this “Project” with you. THE SMART-HOUSE PROJECT is one that God has laid upon my heart, and through the work of the Holy Spirit, I have put it into text, as well as audio form and now able to share it with you. It is based upon the words of Jesus Christ found in Matthew 7:24 & 25 and John 20:31.

Well, by now you've heard of a Smart Car, and a Smart TV, but think about a Smart Phone. A Smart Phone has many functions and can process many applications at one time! But no matter how fast or powerful a Smart Phone is, it had a creator. That creator designed the phone to do specific things. Its creator had made certain plans for the Smart Phone a long time before it was actually created! Your life is much the same! God had specific and special plans just for you a long time before you were even born! But in The Garden of Eden, those plans were ruined by the tricks of Satan.

In Romans 1:18-19, we see the manifestation of the evil brought into the world. It is there we see something horrible that is revealed. God's wrath is going to be revealed against ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS and WRATH. The passage there shows that because of what may be known of God is clear, evident, and visible in us, God’s wrath is going to come upon us for God has shown it to us.

In other words, God's judgment is upon our land and His judgment is coming. In an earlier lesson, I explained the “Certificate of Occupancy”. So, when you stand before God, will He see the signed and sealed "Certificate of Occupancy", or will you be condemned? Will you be thrown into the fiery furnace, the lake of fire, or will you be welcomed into the glory land of heaven?

Now, you know that man already has the sense of knowing that Jehovah God does indeed exist. God put that sense in man when He created him. Does the pot say to the potter, “I do not want to be a pot today, I want to be a plate!”? Absolutely not. And when the potter discovers a flaw in the pottery after it is too late to correct it, what does he do? He discards it into the fiery furnace to be burned!

From reading Matthew 13:41 & 18:8; Luke 3:9; John 15:6 & Revelation 20:14 that those who practice evil and wickedness, and those who continuously rebel against God by refusing to repent from their sin will be thrown into the lake of fire. But the good news is that God does not want anyone to perish, but have everlasting life in heaven with Him.

So, we see that God creates man with the intrinsic sense of knowing about God. He gives us just enough desire to want to know more about Him and have a better relationship with Him. This, of course, is NOT possible without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT JESUS CHRIST (John 3:16, John 14:1 & 6).

This alludes to the question, "Can someone have the Holy Spirit without accepting Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the Son of God?" In fact, the Scripture writers did not seem to have any concern to prove or to argue the existence of God because God's existence was just taken for granted. The problem is that people today are so much into themselves (selfishness; greed; worship of self; animals, earth, and science; reading the newspaper or watching TV; going to the gym; sports; science and money), they do not want to believe the truth of God.

There is a stern warning to those who continually reject God's

truth and substitute it for their own pleasure and comfort. That warning is found in Psalm 5:5-6. For those who continuously reject the laws of God and refuse to turn from their WICKED ways (which includes lying and deceitfulness), God will eventually DESTROY. For God hates THE BLOODTHIRSTY and DECEITFUL MAN and those who continue in it are accepting Satan as their god. These are the ones, according to Revelation 20: 10, 14 & 15, God will eventually destroy. They will be cast into the fiery flames of hell along with SATAN and his EVIL ANGELS. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

 

At the end of your life will be the final storm of death. You will want to go to eternal heaven. Are you building your spiritual house, your Smart-House, using the right plans? The plans God created especially for you. You need to understand that once the plan is followed and the house is built, it is inspected. If the plan is followed, then the house will pass the inspection. The "C.O." is issued and the owner can move in. But, if the house does not pass, there is no "C.O." and things will need to be fixed. The inspection is based upon the plan the architect has written and upon which he has placed his seal of acceptance and approval. If this is missing, the owner will never get to move in. So, one can see how important it is to follow the right plan.

The question is, “Do you have the ‘C.O.’ that is sealed by the Holy Spirit and signed by Jesus Christ in His own blood?

Well folks, I am sorry but we are out of time today. But until next week, think about how special and precious you are to God, and how that makes you feel. And come on back next week to learn more about God our Divine Designer, and what your design and purpose is for life!

I’m Rev. Dr. Robby, Preacher, Professor, and Author of Our Church Without Walls, sharing with you His Word, His Work, His Way.
