The Satanic Conspiracy
Conspiracies can be good or bad. But they are always with us, they are real. If you believe in conspiracies, you are thought of as a person who wears a tin foil hat who sits in their parent’s basement all day on social media. There is the conspiracy theories to turn our nation into a socialist, Marxist nation. There is the conspiracy theories of the Bilderburgers, Club of Rome, Illuminati, Skull and Crossbones, Council on Foreign Relations, etc, etc. There is a real conspiracy behind all of these conspiracies. Satan is conspiring with demons and with willing or unwilling humans to push his agenda and his purposes. God is not conspiring because He is God. He doesn’t need anyone or anything. But He chooses to work with us and for us…. to bring about His will in this world. How is Satan conspiring to conceal the truth? Let’s look.
Winners In Christ
If we ever have sports again…..what makes a good coach. He turns losers into winners. He turns a bunch of hopeless scrubs into a fine tuned machine. He takes uncoordinated, underdogs and turns them into champions. That is one of the reaons we love sports. We love to see the underdog rise up and beat the best. Christ has done the same thing for you and me. He turned us from hopeless losers, unable, unwilling, bunch of failures and turned us into glorious winners in Christ. How did He do that?
The Think Not Generation
In the Book of Matthew, Jesus told His disciples again and again that they would not know the hour of His return. The Lord was so insistent about getting this point across, He repeated himself four times in the space of a few verses. He also included a story about the 10 virgins to illustrate the point of the surprise at His sudden return. His return begins with Him coming FOR His Church and then seven years later coming FOR His church.
The Enemies Of God
God’s people will always have enemies. Let’s look at how Nehemiah’s enemies attacked him. They did three things that all enemies of God do……
Woe’s are mentioned 99 times in the King James Bible. Woe means that doom is coming. Three most famous Woe’s are the fifth, sixth and seventh trumpets of the book of Revelation. Today is Homecoming. Usually I preach on heaven and I will today also. So hang with me here for a little bit.
The Great Gamaliel
Common Sense should always prevail. There seems to be a very short supply of that today. People are acting now on emotion instead of truth. They want fiction instead of facts. Old newspaper reporters had this motto. When the facts get in the way of the legend…print the legend. Legends sell. Facts fail. Gamaliel was a teacher of the law of the Jews. Very respected. He was a man of great wisdom even though he did not follow Jesus Christ. He made a great speech that led to a prophecy that is rings true today.
