Pastor´s Notes

Words of Life for December 2017

167 † That's the apostolic Church moving in the Spirit, wherever God said. Peter done without his dinner. Peter went down to follow the Lord.
And God could ever get a man and women today in this tabernacle, anywhere else, that'll pay no attention to what's going on around them, but submit themselves to the Lord, as an individual unit, God will lead the same man today, that He led then. He proves that He's with us. What we need today is a humble, submitted life. Submit yourself. Don't squeeze yourself back. Don't do nothing but leads straight with the Holy Spirit. What the Spirit says do, do quickly. Don't say, "Well, I'll wait and find out what this is and that is." What the Holy Spirit says do, go do it.
What if I hadn't have went to Finland when the Holy Spirit called me over there? What if I hadn't went to the hospital yesterday, where that little baby was laying there dying; hadn't have went? It's, "Obedience is better than sacrifice." Do what the Holy Spirit says do. What we need tonight, is to let loose of a lot of our little old squeezy ideas, and let the Holy Spirit... You are taught here. You know what's right and wrong.
But what you need tonight is a great big bundle full of the love of God poured out in your heart, all differences washed away. Bury it with the old year as it passes out. Let it go. Let's start a new life, a new beginning. You can't... If you're already born in the Kingdom of God, you've already got the Holy Spirit in you, the only thing you have to do is cut loose from these things of the world that's holding you down.
Said, "Let us lay aside every weight and the sin doth so easily beset us, that we might run with patience, the life, the race that's set before us," Hebrews the 12th chapter. Lay aside the weights.

172 † Could you imagine the wise men coming to see Jesus? I'll just take a little drama for a minute. I can see... They say three wise men. We'll just say there was three. Jim, John, and George, we'd say their names was. And they're coming to see Jesus. And I can see them all getting ready to go. We'll take this fellow Jim. He's quite a man. He runs and tells his wife, said, "Wife, you know what? I seen the star, so I've got to go." And so he goes over and he packs up to go.
That's what's the matter with people today. They're trying to pack up to be a Christian. If there's anything you need, is unpack to be a Christian: got too many things hanging on now. One of them say, "Now, mother, you know, I couldn't go along unless I took my card table," so he hangs that on the camel. "Because, you know, the other boys wouldn't appreciate me going along if I didn't have my card table along."
All these other little old things that keeps you... And you have a little box of selfishness; you have to hang that on too. You have to hang on a little tattling, a little backbiting, a little of this, that, hang it on the camel. And the first thing you know, he jumps up, astraddle the old camel, say, "Come on now. Let's go." The old camel can't hardly move. He's mashed down so hard till he is bowlegged almost.
And you're always kicking and complaining about your church you are going to, and maybe it's you've got so loaded up till it can't run. That's what's the matter. You need to unload, wash up, clean up, get right. Amen. What's the matter with me?

178 † Notice. That's what it is. I can see the others going, moving on. And the first thing you know, he got down and looked at that star again. And so, the first thing he begin to throw tables one way and packages the other way. The wife said, "Where you going, John?"
Said, "I'm laying aside every weight that so easily beset me. And I've got to run this race with patience.
For strait is the gate and narrow is the way, but few there'll be that'll find it." There's only room for you and Jesus. Nobody else can go through. Amen.
She said... I can hear her say, "Well, look, you're forgetting your compass."
"I don't need any compass."
"You forget your seminary degree. You're forgetting your baccalaureate services and all these other things that you hang on."
He said, "Listen. I don't need any compass."
"How you going then?"
He pointed up to the star, said, "I'm going God's provided way. God provided me a star to follow that'll take me to the Christ."
