    Death is not the end

    Death is not the end

    Death Is Not the End
    Pastor George Lehman

    It’s important to be reminded regular that this life is preparation ground for the next life.

    1 Timothy 4:8 (Amp) – For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come.



    ” What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
    - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Two of history's wisest men, Job, and Solomon, thought deeply about the possibilities of an afterlife for human beings, and both concluded that something better awaited men and women on the other side of death.

    Realizing that God "has put eternity in their hearts" Ecclesiastes 3:11, (We were created to live forever)

    Solomon writes at the end of the book that, although the physical body "will return to the earth as it was, . . . the spirit [of man] will return to God who gave it" (Ecclesiastes 12:7).

    Job concludes that a time would come when, despite his being dead in the grave.
    Job 14:14-15(Amp) – 14If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my warfare and service I will wait, till my change and release shall come. 15[Then] You would call and I would answer You; You would yearn for [me] the work of Your hands. Both men knew there would be life after death.



    The New Testament consistently teaches the doctrine of life after death through the resurrection from the dead
    (You can read this in I Corinthians 15 for the Bible's most concentrated teaching on it.)
    1 Corinthians 15:14 (Amp) – And if Christ has not risen, then our preaching is in vain [it amounts to nothing] and your faith is devoid of truth and is fruitless (without effect, empty, imaginary, and unfounded).

    While many understand that those who have given their lives to Jesus in this life will rise from their graves at the return of Christ to enjoy their eternal rewards:

    I Corinthians 15:51-52 - “Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.



    I Thessalonians 4:14-17 - “For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

    The Bible reveals that all humanity will live again!

    Revelation 20:11-15 (NIV) - “11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

     

    “The moment we start to live, we begin to die.  Death is the end of dying, not the end of living.”
    -Charles Spurgeon

    Where is the Ark?

    Where is the Ark?

    Where is the Ark?

    By Pastor Kobus Massyn





    Here is an eternal truth. Life cannot be divided into compartments in some which God is involved and in others of which He is not involved. The fact is that God does not need to be invited into certain departments of life, and kept out of others. He is everywhere, all through life and in every activity of life.  He hears not only the words that are spoken in His name; He hears all words; and there cannot be any such thing as  a form of words which evades bringing God into any transaction. We will regard all promises as sacred if we remember that all promises are made in the presence of God.

    William Barclay



    Key Scripture:

    Exodus 40:34: - Then the cloud [the Shekinah, God's visible presence] covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle!



    The Ark hosted the King of Kings

    Revelation 15:8:-  And the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory (the radiance, the splendor) of God and from His might and power, and no one was able to go into the sanctuary until the seven plagues (afflictions, calamities) of the seven angels were ended.



    Isaiah 6:8:-  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.



    Romans 12:1:-   I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.



    What attitude is growing in my heart?

    Mark 4:20:-   And those sown on the good (well-adapted) soil are the ones who hear the Word and receive and accept and welcome it and bear fruit–some thirty times as much as was sown, some sixty times as much, and some [even] a hundred times as much.'



    Ephesians 3:16-18:-  May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]. May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];



    Acts 17:28: -  For in Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring.



    John 17:20-21:-  Neither for these alone do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching, That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.



    The veil was torn for a reason:

    John 14:23:-  Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.'

    Our great enemy ‘Self-Will’

    Our great enemy ‘Self-Will’

    Our great enemy ‘self-will’

    By Pastor George Lehman



    Why talk about “Self-Will” because it’s a daily struggle, to surrender our will to God.

    It’s not a suggestion either; it’s an on-purpose surrender.

    Mathew 16:24 (Amp) - Then Jesus said to His disciples, if anyone desires to be My disciple, let him deny himself [disregard, lose sight of, and forget himself and his own interests] and take up his cross and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying, also].



    There’s only one effectively redemptive sacrifice – the sacrifice of self-will to make room for the knowledge of God.

    Self-will is defined as pleasing oneself especially in opposition to the wishes or desires of others. It is often associated with stubbornness, disobedience, and a lack of self-control.
    Self-will is so enthusiastic and active that it will break a world to pieces to make a stool to sit on. Doing what one wants in spite of the wishes or orders of others.



    Psalm 78:7-9 (Amp) - That they might set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but might keep His commandments  And might not be as their fathers--a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that set not their hearts aright nor prepared their hearts to know God, and whose spirits were not steadfast and faithful to God. The children of Ephraim were armed and carrying bows, yet they turned back in the day of battle.

    Hebrews 2:1-3a (Amp) - 1Since all this is true, we ought to pay much closer attention than ever to the truths that we have heard, lest in any way we drift past [them] and slip away. 2For if the message given through angels [the Law spoken by them to Moses] was authentic and proved sure, and every violation and disobedience received an appropriate (just and adequate) penalty. 3How shall we escape [appropriate retribution] if we neglect and refuse to pay attention to such a great salvation [as is now offered to us, letting it drift past us forever]?

    God has equipped us to surrender our will.

    2 Peter 1:3 (Amp) - For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue).



    He who wishes to fulfil his mission in the world must be a man of one idea, that is of one great overmastering purpose, overshadowing all his aims, and guiding and controlling his entire life.  “Bate”.



    Will power:  The WILL to act to change.

    The most useless are those who never change through the years and keep going back to their old ways!

    When a disciple realizes God is asking him to do something that goes against his own plans or desires, the ‘self-will test’ has begun.

    God has to break our self-will and personal ambitions to enable Him to use us to trust us to do whatever He requires for us to accomplish in His Kingdom work.

    It’s easier to do it God’s way because you may not like the way that God chooses to break your obstinate WILL!

    At times God will ask a disciple to sacrifice even good and appropriate things.

    He will sometimes even request a disciple to do something for Him and give no logical reason for it.

    I Just want to say it will never go against His word or get you to sin!

    By not explaining His request, God is developing child-like faith and obedience in His child’s heart.

    This kind of simple faith is ALWAYS pleasing to God.



    A good example is Abraham.

    Genesis 22:1-2 (Amp) - After these events, God tested and proved Abraham and said to him, Abraham! And he said, Here I am.  [God] said, take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah; and offer him there as a burnt offering upon one of the mountains of which I will tell you.

    Tested – critical examination or trial of a person’s qualities.

    Proved – establish validity of (will)



    Our constant submission to the Lord’s will is w

    If God is good, why is there so much evil?

    If God is good, why is there so much evil?

    IF GOD IS GOOD, WHY IS THERE SO MUCH EVIL
    Pastor George Lehman
    Genesis 6:5-7 – 5The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination and intention of all human thinking was only evil continually. 6And the Lord regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved at heart. 7So the Lord said, “I will destroy, blot out, and wipe away mankind, whom I have created from the face of the ground – not only man, [but] the beasts and the creeping things and the birds of the air- for it grieves Me and makes Me regretful that I have made them.”
    God did deal with evil once before.

    In heaven God will reveal what on earth He chose to conceal.


    Deuteronomy 29:29 (Amp) – The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law.

    Psalm 34:8 (Amp) - “O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.

    There is no question that evil exists, and it is getting worse.

    Anyone who denies this is living in a cave or on another planet.



    The word evil used is: - “Ponéros” = Hurtful, calamity (ramp), bad, harm, to degenerate from the original virtue.



    As Christians we say God is Good and He is all-powerful.  So, why doesn’t He do something about it?  (You need to bear with me on this one).

    Could it be that God is not that good after all – or maybe He is not all powerful as we believe He is?

    So, what is the answer?  Is God capable of destroying evil?  If so, then why doesn’t He do it.



    I’ve heard so many say: -

    How can I believe in a God who allows children and women to be molested and raped?
    Innocent people suffer from famine and drought.
    Why does God allow terrorists to strap bombs to themselves and kill innocent people?
    Senseless murders, and on and on evil soars

    Why does God allow this?  These are tough questions.
    I don’t pretend to have all the answers, or even understand everything, but I hope to give some answers that will begin to untie this deep mystery.



    Firstly, I would suggest to understand why there is evil in the world, is to: -

    Realise that God is Good and He is all-powerful.

    When people see or even experience evil, they think God can’t be in control, He can’t be good or all-powerful.

    On the surface it sounds good and logical but, until we realize the standards we use to measure the ability and will of God is faulty, and mostly it is just about everyone’s opinion.

    People get so focused on the hurts, the bad, the calamities, and the horrors of what’s happening that they begin to wonder if God cares at all – some believe there is a cosmic plot against them.

    Psalm 34:8 - “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”

    The bible is full of verses telling us about the Goodness of God in dealing with man – even though we don’t deserve it.

     

    Psalm 145:8 - “The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving kindness.”

    After all, why would God bother giving us scriptures and promises if He wasn’t Good and all-powerful.



    Isaiah 40:25-26 -  “25To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One. 26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength not one of them is missing.” (God is Majestic comes to mind)
    I’d say the Creator of the universe is plenty powerful …



    Did you know there are some things God cannot do?

    God cannot lie
    Numbers 23:19: - “God is not a man that He should tell a lie.”
    God cannot change
    Hebrews 13:8 – He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
    God cannot recall our sins after we have asked for forgiveness.
    God cannot be the

    A Visit to Calvary’s Cross

    A Visit to Calvary’s Cross

    A visit to Calvary’s Cross

    By Pastor Ian September



    Leaflet: “When it becomes a deep rooted revelation of what Jesus Christ did for you at Calvary, you will never walk away.”

    Key Scriptures: Isaiah 53:5; John 3:16; John 15:13; Eph. 5:1; 1 Cor. 11:23-29

    1 Cor. 11:28

    Good morning church, on this very special Sunday, no ordinary Sunday, but the greatest day in history; He has risen, just as He said he would! As the Scripture said He would.

    Today we celebrate Resurrection Sunday, the most important Sunday on the Christian calendar, and we can know for sure, that He is alive, the stone’s been rolled away, death could not hold Him,  and the grave could not contain Him! Hallelujah!

    So, as we look at our sermon topic today, we should understand that it is important to visit Calvary often, to remind ourselves of the finished work on the cross, where Jesus Christ the  Messiah, laid down His life, voluntarily & completely so that you and I may be washed, healed & made whole!

    The name Calvary comes from the Latin word meaning “the place of skulls” and the Greek word Golgotha, in its original meaning “the hill of skulls”.

    But the most meaningful aspect of Calvary or Golgotha, is what happened there, nearly 2000 years ago! Isaiah 53:5 says this about the event that brought us life. (Read from verse 4).

    Isaiah 53:4-5 (NIV) – 4Surely He took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered Him punished by God stricken by Him, and afflicted. 5But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

    This all happened on Calvary hill, where our Saviour was tortured beyond recognition, bruised & broken for our transgressions, sin & shame… and with that in mind, when we as believers look at the cross, we will discover & be aware of our sinfulness, short-comings & iniquities!

    Can I just say, that you cannot look at the empty cross & not be challenged, church.

    It is quite normal for people to conceal, ignore, excuse, justify & even explain their sins, but if you fully understand the wondrous cross, and Jesus’s body on that cross, you will find it almost impossible not to confess & forsake our sins!

    When we visit Calvary, we will discover the very nature of God:
    John 3:16 (NIV) – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

    It’s on Calvary’s Hill that God reveals His amazing grace & mercy towards sinners, giving us what we do not deserve, and not, not giving us what we do deserve!

    The Bible teaches us in John 15:13 (NIV) – Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
    Jesus laid down His life, although He had legions at His disposal, He said: “Father, not my will, but your will be done”! Are you prepared to lay down your life for Him, church?

    It is sad, but true, that every rejecter of God’s love, mercy & grace is crucifying the Son of God all over again (think about that…).

    When we visit Calvary, or Golgotha, we will find that the world’s only hope & future, is in Christ alone!

    You see, many people, including myself, went to great extremes, to find happiness, love, joy and peace….. Some will spend millions in pursuing the ultimate, but when we visit Calvary, we will find that the “ultimate” is just a confession away! Ultimate love, joy, peace & happiness is found at the foot of the cross, on your knees before the Almighty God!

    When we visit Calvary, we will find inspiration for serving God & others!

    Jesus’ death on the cross, must surely be one of the greatest acts of self-denial ever! The spotless Lamb of God, Christ the Messiah without blemish, sin or shame laying it all down, so that we may have it all!

    The Bible says in Ephesians 5:1 (Amp) – Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate
