    Hosea 4:6 | Cost of Risk

    Hosea 4:6 | Cost of Risk

    The Word
    According to the My Faith Votes website - 90 million Christians in America are eligible to vote, but as many as 40 million fail to vote in Presidential election cycles. And 15 million are not even registered to vote.
    I want to talk a little today about TIME – and specifically tell you that it is Time
    If I can put it more simply – It’s time for us as Christians to stop being marginalized, ...pushed back, ....pushed around, ........ silenced, and disregarded
    God has told us time and time again to Not be stupid – its in the bible – well maybe the
    Message translation –I’m paraphrasing of course ... but it’s in there
    Hosea 4:6 NKJV
    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
    It’s not lack of:
    Prayer – not lack of giving – of worship – of serving or even a lack of attending church
    When things aren’t going the way I think they should be, as a Christian I think that means – I need to pray more, I need to serve more, I need to do more But that’s not how God wants us to be with Him
    I don’t have a relationship with God because of the things I do, I have a relationship with Him because of Who He is
    I want you to focus on two words: DESTROYED and KNOWLDEGE
    DESTROYED from the Hebrew – to be dumb – nothing to do with how smart you are – it means you can’t speak or you’re silent (to not speak); to fail or perish; be brought to silence – in other words you can speak but you’ve been brought to silence.
    KNOWLEDGE (Hebrew) – perception, discernment, understanding, wisdom; to discern and to recognize
    So understanding this I want to convert that passage to today’s language – or the Guy Beveridge version based on the days and times that we are currently living in:
    Hosea 4:6
    My people are failing because they have been brought to silence (we can speak, we just don’t speak) from (or because of) a lack of discernment and an ability to recognize, understand and see with their spiritual eyes ..... (bring in Ecclesiastes 3:1) ...the season and time they are living in.
    So, as Christians we are choosing or allowing ourselves to be marginalized and pushed back and
    silenced because of our lack of knowledge – and our unwillingness to speak up.
    We must guard against falling into the devil's trap and stop being the leaders we are called to be just because we get some resistance
    And we need to make sure we are using the gifts and talents that He gave us to combat evil and unrighteousness.
    Our treasures are a trust given to us from God to give Him a return on His investment – Our TIME is also a trust from God to give ROI – our talents our abilities are also a trust from God.
    As Christians We must guard against falling into the devil's trap and stop being the world changers we are called to be just because we get some resistance
    And we need to make sure we are using the gifts and talents that He gave us to combat evil and unrighteousness.
    Listen to what the Bible tells us about talents .... Matthew 25:14-19 " For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. 15 "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. 16 "Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. 17 "And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. 18 "But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord's money. 19 "After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
    Now in this passage a talent was a form of currency – something valuable. Monetary value based on the type of meta

    Isaiah 54:17 | Vehicle Safety

    Isaiah 54:17 | Vehicle Safety

    A word - Isaiah 54:17
    New International Version
    no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD.
    Good News Translation
    But no weapon will be able to hurt you; you will have an answer for all who accuse you. I will defend my servants and give them victory." The LORD has spoken.
    Elevation Worship – See a Victory
    The weapon may be formed, but it won't prosper
    When the darkness falls, it won't prevail
    'Cause the God I serve knows only how to triumph
    My God will never fail
    Oh, my God will never fail
    When I first heard this passage as a Christian, I really focused on the first part and I don’t know about you, but I took it to mean nothing that comes against me will harm me. Sure – that’s the guarantee but It wasn’t until later in my walk with Christ that I started to understand that part about the weapon being formed. This sentence assures us of a couple things: Weapons will be formed, and they will not have their intended outcome or produce any results. Then as we look deeper into the whole passage, we can start to understand that it is much more than the first sentence, there is so much more than protection against attacks.
    The promise here is clear it will NOT PROSPER. Meaning that you will be able to rely on God’s hand to lift you up out of the trouble that you are in, or He will cause the trouble to turn around for good (Rom 8:28).
    ‘And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn’ – Now doesn’t that just sound great? You will be able to protest those that have caused you problems in the past. All of those that have slandered or caused grief and sorrow by what they have said, you will be able to turn the tables on them and condemn them. But notice the words ‘in judgment’, meaning at the end times when we ALL have our mistakes aired, so make sure that there is no plank in your own eye and here Forgiveness is always the best policy.
    ‘This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord’ – A heritage is something given as a birthright, meaning that you did not obtain it by anything you did, but just by who gave birth to you. If you were born in Jesus, then our heritage is from Him, and we will receive all of the promises and blessings of that birthright.
    ‘And their righteousness or from the NIV “and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD.”– Another acknowledgement of our lack of ability to obtain righteousness for ourselves –Vindication means: the action of clearing someone of blame or suspicion – we want to make sure we aren’t translating that word to mean vengeance – because that belongs only to the Lord.
    A weapon
    I wonder if you’re listening to this in your car or if you will drive a car after listening to this? There are a lot of stats that support that one of those ideas are an almost certainty – you will either be listening to this while driving or you will drive sometime after you listen to this
    Here in America we spend an average of more than 17,600 minutes behind the wheel each year, according to a new survey from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.
    Also during the study they found that drivers travelled nearly 10,900 miles on average and spent more than 290 hours on the road.
    “The amount of time the average driver spends behind the wheel each year is equivalent to seven 40-hour weeks at the office,”
    So naturally, let’s talk about some vehicle safety ideas. Ideas for you to put into action right away!
    1. Visually Inspect Your Vehicle
    A fifteen second walk around your vehicle can identify a flat tire, new damage, and lots more about your vehicle and environment. Get in the habit of doing a visual inspection to determine the condition of your vehicle.
    2. Look Inside You
