Matthew 17:14: "And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, …"

In Luke 9:37 tells us that when Jesus came off of the mountain a great multitude met him.

These verses before us are interesting to me because before Jesus came down off the mountain, He was transfigured before them and the appearance of His face was altered and His robe became white and glistening. Or in other words the glory of God came down and exposed Jesus for who He really was: the Son of the Almighty God.

This was such a powerful picture and standing beside Jesus was Moses who represented the Law and Elijah who represented the prophets and they were discussing Jesus' destination to go to Calvary. The disciples, when they saw this, were afraid, Peter spoke up and wanted to build buildings for Moses, Elijah and Jesus, but God the Father would have none of this and told Peter to be quiet and to hear His Son Jesus.

Now, when Moses went to Mount Sinai to receive the law, Moses came down from the mountain, and Moses’s face shined and when the people saw him, they ran from Him. But now Jesus comes down from the mountain of Transfiguration and the people ran to Him.

It is also interesting to me that the giving of the law occurred 50 days after them leaving Egypt and 3,000 people died. 50 days after Calvary and the Resurrection of our Lord, on the day of Pentecost 3,000 people were saved.

What a difference between the law and the grace of God! Hebrews 4:16: "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need."

My point is this: when you and I are going through something, rather than run from God we need to run to Him. When everything is going south on you and you are having a hard time keeping your head above water, run to Him that you may find grace to help in time of need. When someone has hurt you run to Him to find grace to help in time of need.

But what about when you are guilty and have sinned and done things that you are ashamed of? Many decide because they are embarrassed and don’t want anyone to know, they will stop going to church. Let me tell you; that is exactly what you don’t want to do. In fact, Hebrews 4:16 says “let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy…" When do I need mercy? When I have messed up and when I have sinned. But because of what Jesus accomplished at Calvary, you and I, even when we have sinned can come. We can run into the loving arms of Jesus.

If we learn to get into His presence every day and listen to His voice, then when the problems and unexpected disasters occur, because you walked with Him in the sunshine, He will walk with you in the storms. Because you walked with Him in joy and happiness, He will walk with you when the tears are falling.

One of the things that I hope my children know is that when things are not going good for them, they can come to me. When they have done something that they shouldn’t have done, they can come to me. Yet the Bible tells us “If we being evil know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more will our Heavenly Father give good things to those who ask."

Run to Him, Run to Him for He loves you with an everlasting love.

Deuteronomy 28:1-2, 15: "Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.

 "And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God:

vs15 "But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:"

My heart is heavy today, Monday October 2, 2017 for when I awoke this morning the news was full of terrible atrocities that took place in Las Vegas Nevada.  They at this time are reporting 58 dead and between 4 to 5 hundred wounded or hurt. 

As I think about this, my mind went back to the book of Deuteronomy where God told His people that if they would obey His voice or His word and put Him in His rightful place, first, then He would bless them.  But then He tells us that if we as a nation won’t obey His voice or His word then curses will come upon us. 

I believe this is where we are today, we have told the Lord in so many areas of our culture that we don’t need Him.  We did that in our schools and look what has happened even to the point of little innocent kindergarten children being killed.

We have told him that we don’t need Him in our Judicial system and our Supreme Court the highest court in the land have handed down judgments that have gone against not only common sense but against God’s Holy Word. 

We have told him that we don’t need Him in our Government and as a result the deficit of this country is so high that we are teetering on a financial collapse and the ruination of this country.  I am sorry to say we now have a government that is totally inept and has no wisdom on how to fix any of the problems we are having. Wisdom comes from God, we have plenty of knowledge but the ability to use that knowledge is non-existent and that is wisdom. 

Some would say you are saying that God is causing this, no I am not, for I have come to believe that Jesus came on a rescue mission to save us.  He did not come to condemn us, because we were already condemned.  God is not causing the tragedies that we see, He wants to protect us from them, but we refuse to dwell in the secret place of the most High and shall abide under the shadow of the of the almighty because then He is my refuge and my fortress, my God and in Him will I trust. (Ps. 91:1-2)

God has warned us if we are not willing to allow Him to be the hiding place by trusting in Him and only Him then He can’t protect us. 

I believe that America is on a collision course for destruction unless we turn to God.  The question will we, I am afraid of that answer.  I remember walking in Galilee with Dr. David Reagan, we were walking by the Sea of Galilee where Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount.  I ask this man who has studied the Word of God his entire life and is one of the most respected men in the Study of Eschatology what is the hope for America. 

He looked at me and said “I wish I could say it was II Chronicles 7:14, but I am afraid this is not going to happen”  He went on “the hope for America is the Coming of our Lord. 

What we see in Las Vegas is exactly what Jesus said “because lawlessness will increase the love of many will wax cold”. 

May we pray for the peace of Jerusalem, which is the second coming of our Lord.

Matthew 9:2 Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you."

In the midst of Jesus’s teaching they brought to Him a paralytic, a man paralyzed lying on a bed. How important this lesson is to us who love and care about our family, friends and neighbors who are away from the Lord or have not found Him and are still searching. Notice what it says, when Jesus saw their faith. Not the faith of the man paralyzed on the bed but those who had brought him to Jesus.

I believe that God can and will move mountains to save someone, and I further believe that He will move when those around a lost person demonstrate a degree of faith and concern. Now Jesus says to the man “be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you” and that was the one thing that really ticked off those around this man, especially the religious Pharisees and Priest of that day.

Now Jesus who the Bible says knew what was in all men, understood what they were thinking and asked them a question. Which is easier to say your sins are forgiven or to say take up your bed and walk. You see the real question was who Jesus said that He was.

That was the burr under their saddle, just like it is today for many. There are many who try to diminish who Jesus is by saying that Jesus never said He was God. But read John 5:17-18, Jesus was saying He was God.

Throughout the book of John Jesus said He was “I Am”. To the Jew that meant He was God. The very reason the Pharisees had Jesus crucified “He said He was God” The story goes on and Jesus tells them, because of their unbelief He would demonstrate why He had power to forgive sins. He told the man to get up and take his bed and walk and He did. Demonstrating Jesus was God and only God could forgive sins. This past week I heard a man give his testimony and he made a statement that troubled me, he said “he went to the priest to be dissolved of his sins”. My friends I believe only Jesus can dissolve us of our sins and when we come to Jesus and we confess our sins the Bible tells us that He is “faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us of all of our sins. Jesus who was God has the power to forgive all sins. The Bible tells us in Romans 5:20 …But where sin abounded grace bounded much more. May I ask, have you come to the one who came to seek and to save that which was lost? How about today just come the way you are?

Pastor Lee Cruse, that there was a time in my life I came to Him and He forgave Me.

Philippians 4:14 -17: “Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress.  Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only. For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities. Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.

Paul in writing to the Philippine Church commends them for their generosity and their compassion toward others.  They gave sacrificially and many gave when they didn’t have it to give.  They gave because they had love for the brethren.  Jesus once said that the world will know that we are His disciples if we have love one for another.

Last Sunday, God presented us with an opportunity to show our love for others to show comfort and caring for those that have just gone through one of the worst Hurricanes Florida has had.  The moment that I told you of their need and then we prayed for the Lord to give us an opportunity to share in this effort.  On Saturday, when I got the call from Brother Jonathan Vorce from the Lake Wood Church of God, I believe that God was orchestrating an opportunity for His people to come together in love.

I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose your home, and everything you have.  I also heard that in Texas only 7% had flood Insurance.  This disaster will last for months, maybe years.

Grace people came through. You raised right at $3,000 dollars and that didn’t include all the cases of water and cleaning supplies our church is sending back with them two generators and two chainsaws that we purchased at Lowes.  Does it not feel good to give, no wonder that God loves a cheerful giver.

I want you to know I am so proud of you and to be called your pastor.  What wonderful and generous people we have with such a big heart. 

Pastor Lee Cruse the pastor of the Grace Bible Church that Jesus Loves.

1 Corinthians 2:3: “I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.”

I once heard John Piper, who I greatly admire, talking to a group of young pastors and told them if there is one verse a pastor should live by it is I Corinthians 2:3. That I was with you, when you were going through the valley I was with you, when you were setting by side your loved one’s sick bed I was with you. When you walked to the grave side I was with you.

I didn’t delegate someone else to go, no it was me that was there standing by your side. To me this is the role of a pastor. Today when so many are looking for specific things in a church, I believe the number one thing is to have a caring pastor and a loving church.

Maybe right now you don’t see it, but I am afraid that the day will come when you will see it. It is interesting to me that the Bible when it talks about church attendance says in the book of Hebrews 10:25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Did you notice that it says, “exhorting one another” that means your pastor and church is there for you?

Now some will say I would do that but I am afraid in those situations that I would not know what to say. Number one, what we are to say, the Lord will give us the words. (Col.4:4) But years ago I read a book by a man by the name of Joseph Bylie and the book was called “A View from a Hurst”. Joseph Bylie was a medical doctor who had lost three children. He lost a son to a motor vehicle accident at 17. He lost another child to leukemia at around 7 or 8 and he lost an infant. One of the things that he said was that the people He appreciated so much was those who came and didn’t try to explain why this had happened.

I know that many say things out of an uncomfortable ignorance. They see the person in pain and they truly want to make it better but they are uncomfortable and think if they could say the right thing they will relieve the agony this person is going through. But my friend I have been in that position more than I want to think about and I have learned that I don’t know why this tragedy has happened and neither does anyone else only the Lord knows.

Dr. Bylie said those he appreciated were those who came and sat and said nothing but let him know they were there and if he needed anything to let them know. Sometimes silence is golden and it is also powerful.

Now, understand that I am not saying that there are never times when the Holy Spirit does ask you to speak up and to use a comforting scripture to help someone. But you have to make sure that it is the Holy Spirit that is telling you to speak.

I also believe this verse is for parents and dads. So many families that I have done funerals for the one thing when asked about their mother or dad was they were always there for me. That means physically but it also means emotionally and mentally. It pays off to give yourself to others. Jesus said He came not to be served but to serve, and that should be our goal also.

2 Corinthians 3:2: "You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody."

When you and I have come to know the Lord, one of the things that I believe happens is that there is a distinctive change that takes place within us. The Hope of Glory or Heaven for you and I is Christ in Us. (Col.1:27) Simply this means that people will see Jesus in our lives and our actions. 

The Bible is the living word of God (John 6:63) and we believe, because of that word living in us. (John 5:38) The word of God in the Greek is called the Spermatozoa.  When the seed of the word is planted deep into our hearts, God says that His word will not return unto Him void but would accomplish what He set it out to do. (Isa. 55:11). So when a person reads the word of God and that seed goes deep into his or her heart it will have an effect. 

Jesus is called the Logos or the word of God. (John 1:1) Most people in this culture will probably never pick up the Bible to read it.  Satan doesn’t want them to, because he knows that it will have a profound impact on them.  But people will watch you, they will watch your actions, they will listen to what you say.  My question to you is, will they see you or will they see Christ in You. 

Many people out in public will be seen as very religious but then they go home and it’s a different picture.  You can study the word, and study the word, but we must allow it to have an effect on us.  We are like the Sower and Seed, and remember that only one fell on good ground.  Other things prohibited the seed from growing.

Does your family see Christ in you, and do they see the outworking of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in you?  How about your spouse, has your marriage become legalistic that yes you are married and you do all the things that look like you have a successful marriage but is there passion?  Does your spouse feel that you want to spend time with her or him?  Many couples are like two passing ships in the middle of the night! 

May I also ask as we study the word do you cherry pick the portions that you want to look at or do you skip over those sections that make you feel uncomfortable.  For Instance, I Corinthians 7 is a chapter that every couple should read, it tells how to keep passion in your marriage where that you look forward to your husband coming home and he is looking forward to coming home. 

I find that many of the things that we are so embarrassed about, the intimate things that are between Husbands and wives, we refuse to discuss.  Yet these are the very things that God Himself established. But the devil out in the world doesn’t think they are taboo and so Satan takes the pure and righteous things and desecrates them. 

Men need to learn to touch their wives with a loving touch that has nothing to do with sex.  That your wife feels your touch and knows it is a touch of love.  Men need that reassurance that his wife steal thinks he’s the one.  I once heard a husband say when told he needed to tell his wife he loved her, he said “I told her that I loved her when we got married and thought that was enough”.   Now we all know that is ridiculous, your wife needs to be told you love her on a regular basis. 

But your husband needs that reassurance also, that you think he is your man.  Now some may be saying that’s crazy but Christ in you won’t.  Christ in you steps out of your comfort zone and does what the Holy Spirit tells you to do!

Romans 4:17: ("I have made you a father of many nations") in the presence of Him whom he believed--God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

I want to focus on the last phrase of this verse “who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did”.  This is a powerful verse of scripture.  This verse identifies who we as God’s children are.  We are of such faith in Jehovah God and His Word that we trust his word and the illumination of the Holy Spirit, that although something has not happened or doesn’t exist we can claim that it does. 

1 John 5:14-15 tells us that we have a confidence in Him that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.  This is saying that we can have such a confidence in Him and His word that we can know that we have something before we have it.  That is calling those things that are not as though they are. 

I begin to think about this and how the devil who tries to imitate everything our Father in Heaven does, makes it look like the Lords work but the outcome is totally different.

For instance, your past.  One of the things that I have tried to teach here is that “We cannot afford to entertain any thought about us that God doesn’t think about us”.  If you have come to Jesus in real repentance and submission and ask Him to be your Lord and Savior then all your sins have been forgiven and those things in your past you wish you hadn’t done are gone.  He has separated you from them and your past as far as the East is from the West.  This also includes those of you who became a Christian, His child but then messed up.   Listen if God will forgive us while we were sinners then will He not forgive us when we are His children. 

Satan loves to bring up our past and even create doubts within us that we are not really saved.   The Lord is wanting to raise up a people who can say Satan has nothing in me. No part of my history, because my history declares the effectiveness of the Blood of Jesus.  And any time we visit our past apart from the blood of Jesus we visit a lie because our past no longer exists!    Jesus took care of it! 

So, when the devil comes at you through your mind and brings you things that are no longer part of you, and tries to call things that are not as though they are.  Allow the word of God to arise in you and you call those things that are, like the forgiveness of Jesus, and give Him the word.

Isaiah 43:25 I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.

Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together," Says the LORD, "Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.

Colossians 1:13-14 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,  in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. 

Pastor Lee Cruse who is grateful for Jesus who died for my sins that I would be forgiven.

John 8:36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

Jesus makes this statement to the Jews the Bible says, that believed in Him.  He tells them that “If you abide in My word, you are my disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” John 8:31-32.   Jesus is saying that if you abide in My teachings and live in accordance with them-you are truly my disciples.   And because you are my disciples, then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.  

Now there were some Pharisees there that spoke up and doubted Jesus words and claimed to be Abraham’s descendants and stated that they had never been in bondage to anyone.   They ask, how can you say, you will be made free?

Jesus’s answer to them was that “whoever commits sin is the slave of sin”.  And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.  Therefore, if the son makes you free you shall be free indeed. 

If the truth makes you free then what does a lie do, does it not put you into bondage?  But when Jesus makes the statement, that is one of the most quoted statements of all “ the truth shall make you free”, we need to understand that Jesus was not making a general statement to the truth in general. 

Jesus clarifies this by saying in vs. 36, “if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.   Truth and knowing the truth are always connected to Christ and if a person wants to be truly free they must come to Christ.  Then the person who comes must abide in Him and His word if they truly want to be free.

I hear people all the time talking about or thinking if they come to Christ they will be in bondage and a prisoner. They think they will be restricted!  I tell you the truth you will never know what true freedom is until you come to Jesus.

How many people do we know that are prisoners to drugs, or alcohol, to financial pressure?  How many that have gotten their selves into a bad relationship and are pressured to do things they really don’t feel free to do. 

To abide in Christ is to live in freedom, the Lord who loves you wants you to be free.  Hebrews 4 talks about rest and how we have to labor to enter into that rest.  This is not talking about Heaven, this is talking about being free to live your life without having to look back over your shoulder.  II Corinthians 6:12  All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.   You see that is rest in the Lord and that is abiding in Him, that we understand Jesus has set us absolutely free, and we are to be discerning enough, that we don’t allow anything to drag us back into bondage. 

Let me give you a simple illustration of what I am talking about.  Let’s say that you buy a house and it has a nice back yard and your kids want to go out there and play.  The problem is that the back-yard backs right up to a four- lane interstate and cars and trucks are speeding by.   Now would you allow your kids to go out into that yard and play, chasing balls and whatever? I wouldn’t.  So they can’t enjoy the yard. 

Let’s say that you put up an 8 foot fence that keeps the kids from going into the highway.  Now some would say this is too restrictive on their freedom, least some who have no sense.  But now your kids are free to enjoy the back yard without fear, even though there is a restriction there.

The Lord puts restrictions in our life to protect us and because He loves us and so we can be free.  If we will abide in Him.

II Corinthians 3:18: "And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."

We live in a time where the problems within our society are mounting, it seems, like we have never seen. We are experiencing an epidemic of drug problems that is touching every family, pornography is taking away the innocence of our children. Families seem to be divided and yet we have more technology to communicate than any time in history, but we seem more alone and isolated. The suicide rate of young adults 15 to 25 is increasing, but the question is, what is the answer to all these problems.

The single most important thing a church can do to help combat the lure of sin and these problems, is to make sure the gospel of Jesus Christ is the single most important thing about the church. If the Apostle Paul was right in II Corinthians 3:18 that beholding the glory of Jesus transforms us, and if he is right in Titus 2:11-12 that it is grace that trains people to renounce ungodliness, and if he is right in Romans 2:4 that it is God’s kindness that leads us to repentance – and of course, he is- then we cannot expect the routine work of reminding the people of the law to do an adequate job. In countless other Bible passages, we see that it is only the gospel that solves our worship problems.

The commands of God are good and holy. Christians are not to ignore God’s laws! And we ought to apply all the commandments, and Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount reinforced them and made them stronger. But while the law is good it is only good at what it intended to do- to reveal the standard by which we’re to live and reveal our falling short of the standard.

The law cannot empower us to obey itself. It’s like a man who has a dirty face and looks in a mirror. The mirror shows him that his face is dirty but he would not start rubbing his face on the mirror to clean himself. The law can show us our sin but it can’t take it away and has no power to take our sin away. But the Holy Spirit working through the grace of God can do that very thing.

Grace is the only “thing” the Scriptures refers to as power. So, Christians are not free from the commandments, only the condemnation that comes from them. In a way, we are both free from the law and free to the law. Now we can obey God with Joy and gratitude, without fear that when we mess up we will be unjustified.

Until we understand that the gospel is the doorway into freedom from sin, even our religious efforts will simply be rearranging idols. What we are facing in this land and this culture is a worship problem, we have too many gods before Him. If we are not walking according to the Spirit in the grace of God, all our efforts to change, including religious efforts become efforts of self-worship conducted according to the flesh.

The answer is that we must find our satisfaction in Christ; any other fulfillment we seek to replace the idolatry in any sin will simply be another idol.

Pastor Lee Cruse, who has a desire to truly learn to worship our Lord.

II Corinthians 5:7: "For we walk by faith, not by sight."

For the last few weeks we have been talking about how the Lord so designed you and I that we are Spirit, Soul and body. That the Lord designed us that our Spirit came alive when we received Jesus Christ into our heart and it is our Spirit that our Father in Heaven wants to rule and be king in our being. Our Soul is to be servant or subservient to our Spirit and our body is to be slave as to what our Spirit tells it to do.

In the last few weeks I have had several people come to me and ask how it is that we walk in the Spirit. The Bible tells us that “if we walk in the Spirit we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” (Gal. 5:16) Ephesians 5:18 tells us that “to be filled with the Spirit” which I believe is a command. We have all been sealed with the Holy Spirit but many Christians are not controlled by the Holy Spirit.

When we look at the disciples, who messed up continually, that Jesus said “Oh ye of little faith” yet after the day of Pentecost the disciples were a totally different bunch. Why were they? Because the power of the Holy Spirit came upon them and they were changed.

To walk in the Spirit means that you are under the control of the Holy Spirit. When you were saved God reached down and turned the switch of your Spirit on and now the Person of the Holy Spirit can communicate with you, if you will let Him. Many Christian’s spirit is hunkered down because of soul ties or other things that keep them from the freedom in Christ.

To Walk in the Spirit means the Holy Spirit is in charge and your soul that is made up of your intellect, your emotions, and your will is not in charge. It means you are being directed by the Holy Spirit and not your body, your eyes, your ears, your sense of touch, your taste and sense of smell.

So the Scriptures tell us that we walk now by faith and not by sight. Sight is what part of you? Yes, it’s your body, what you see. Therefore Hebrews 4:12 tells us the Word of God is like a two-edged sword and what does it do “to the division of soul and Spirit.” This means I need to stay in the word so I can know when I am living by what The Holy Spirit is saying or, living by what my soul or body is saying.

To walk in the Spirit means an absolute dependency on the Lord. I start my day out by giving it to Him. I then in every step, every word I say am sensitive to the Holy Spirit. When Jesus was baptized the Holy Spirit came down like a dove and lit on Him and stayed on Him. That is, it, I walk as if the Holy Spirit of God is a dove that has lit on my shoulder and each step, each word, each action I am so aware of Him that I don’t want to do anything or say anything that would disturb Him and cause Him to not be there.

To walk in the Spirit is to begin to think different, to begin to think Kingdom thoughts and not worldly thoughts. Many times what is insanity to the world, is absolute total intelligence as far as the Kingdom of Heaven is concerned.

To walk in the Spirit is a new way of living, thinking and being. May I tell you that the world will not go along with this kind of life style. The benefits of peace and joy and purpose will outweigh anything the world will throw at you.

One other thing, to walk in the Spirit is such freedom because now you no longer see yourself the way you think you are, now you see yourself the way that God sees you in love, and guess what, you will discover that you are forgiven, and that God loves you but He also likes you.

Pastor Lee Cruse the pastor who needs the Lord to restore his soul every day and needs to walk in the Spirit.
