DO NOT GET OUT OF THE BOAT-From May 2014- May Day Message

I pray I will be able to preach this one on Video, we will see, this is preaching stuff, esp towards the last part.

Act 27:21 But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.

Act 27:22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but of the ship.

Act 27:23 For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,

Clarke:

Acts 27:23

The - God, whose I am, and whom I serve - This Divine communication was intended to give credit to the apostle and to his doctrine; and, in such perilous circumstances, to speak so confidently, when every appearance was against him, argued the fullest persuasion of the truth of what he spoke; and the fulfillment, so exactly coinciding with the prediction, must have shown these heathens that the God whom Paul served must be widely different from theirs.


Act 27:24 Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.

Act 27:25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me

Gill:

Faith takes all this at his word, and firmly believes it shall be as he has said: and it has good grounds and reasons for acting in this manner; from the veracity, faithfulness, and power of God, who has promised; and from the nature of the promises themselves, which are unconditional, immutable, all in Christ, and yea and amen in him, and not one of them has ever failed: and such a believing frame of soul greatly encourages cheerfulness of spirit, and produces it: a believer is cheerful himself, as he has reason to be; he is filled with joy and peace in believing, yea, with a joy unspeakable, and full of glory; and he makes all about him cheerful; he comforts others with the same comforts he has been comforted of God; and however, he exhorts, after his own example, to believe, and be of good cheer;

Whatever God has told his people of, or has promised unto them, shall be performed, whether with respect to things temporal; that they shall not want any good thing; that all their afflictions shall be for their good; that they shall be supported under them, and at last brought out of them: or whether with respect to spiritual things; whatever he has said concerning himself, that he will be their God, will continue to love them, will not leave them, nor forsake them, will guide and protect them, will supply all their need, and give them grace here, and glory hereafter; and whatever he has said concerning his Son, that he is their Savior and Redeemer.

RWP:

Acts 27:25

Wherefore be of good cheer (dio euthumeite). God had spoken. That was enough

For I believe God (pisteuō gar tōi theōi). This is Paul’s reason for his own good cheer and for his exhortation to confidence in spite of circumstances so untoward


2Ch 20:20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

JFB:

2 Chronicles 20:20-21

as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood ... Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem — probably in the gate of Jerusalem, the place of general rendezvous; and as the people were on the eve of setting out, he exhorted them to repose implicit trust in the Lord and His prophet, not to be timid or desponding at sight of the enemy, but to remain firm in the confident assurance of a miraculous deliverance, without their striking a single stroke.

Hebrew Believe:

H539
אמן
'âman
aw-man'
A primitive root; properly to build up or support; to foster as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain; once (in Isa_30:21; by interchange for H541) to go to the right hand: - hence assurance, believe, bring up, establish, + fail, be faithful (of long continuance, stedfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right.

This point was brought out in a message called, " The divine Amen" Aman is interchangeable many times with , believe, so be it ,Established, aman. Believe.

Established Hebrew:

H539
אמן
'âman
aw-man'
A primitive root; properly to build up or support; to foster as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain; once (in Isa_30:21; by interchange for H541) to go to the right hand: - hence assurance, believe, bring up, establish, + fail, be faithful (of long continuance, stedfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right.

Believe second time, again divine amen:

Strong's 539. All three, same word, aman, wild.

His Prophets Hebrew:

H5030
נביא
nâbı̂y'
naw-bee'
From H5012; a prophet or (generally) inspired man: - prophecy, that prophesy, prophet.

H5012
נבא
nâbâ'
naw-baw'
A primitive root; to prophesy, that is, speak (or sing) by inspiration (in prediction or simple discourse): - prophesy (-ing) make self a prophet.

So shall ye prosper Hebrew:

H6743
צלח צלח
tsâlach tsâlêach
tsaw-lakh', tsaw-lay'-akh
A primitive root; to push forward, in various senses (literally or figuratively, transitively or intransitively): - break out, come (mightily), go over, be good, be meet, be profitable, (cause to, effect, make to, send) prosper (-ity, -ous, -ously).


We no longer look to, and believe in every word a N.T. Prophet says and are established, we look to Jesus, his word, and our teacher the Holy Spirit, believe in Jesus, believe in the word, believe what the Holy Spirit teaches you, tells you and you shall prosper spiritually.

This cross reference given to show, Paul, as an Apostle, was a Prophet. The N.T. Apostle had the five fold gifts of the Spirit, and signs and true wonders were the sign of an Apostle. Many feel today , we no longer have prophets, regardless, never trust, or base your belief system on a N.T. Prophet, mostly, the function, role, and call are different than O.T. Prophets, this is why N.T. prophets know in part and prophecy in part, Grace. The O.T. Prophets , if a word did not come to pass, they were stoned. Note: The great prophets , who never had a word fall to the ground, were persecuted as Jesus said, and why? They were not false, the O.T. Congregation did not want to hear truth, this is the crises today, why Truth, true watchmen are reproved, railed on, not heeded, because men shall turn from sound doctrine, they will not be able to even listen or handle sound doctrine, as Paul said, of Christians in Apostasy in these last days. The righteous, true Prophets were persecuted, and so will the true watchmen, Christians, today be, it never has changed and until the end of the tribulation, it never will, Hence: Judgment.

Paul knew the divine amen, he had faith, what God said, he would do, we all need this faith, it is what establishes us, aman's us, when we say aman, to a word the lord gives, to the bible, we are saying, I believe what it says, I believe the lord who said it, I have faith in the word, and I rest in that faith.

In the end of the text, they reached the shore, all were safe, it did not prevent a violent Ship wreck, the road many times, even the path to promises given as we wait, in faith, hope, this road is often paved with tears.
But all that is promised by the lord, every true foretelling he gives, if it is truly from him, will come to pass, you may have to face a violent Shipwreck first, but you will reach the other side.



Act 27:34 Wherefore I pray you to take some meat: for this is for your health: for there shall not an hair fall from the head of any of you.

Act 27:35 And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken it, he began to eat.

Act 27:36 Then were they all of good cheer, and they also took some meat.


Act 27:44 And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.
I have come to learn over the past few years somethings, I learn everyday,but I have firmly learned a few things. I was meditating on this, lessons learned, all that has happened, and still is, what is it, waiting, this constant answer in prayer, No, or wait, not yet. That is the main themes of my answered prayers, why, what has it done, what Have I learned, what can you learn when the same happens to you?

Wait....wait......wait......not yet, soon wait........soon I promise, .

What do we do with this?

Whatever happens, the lesson is. DO NOT GET OUT OF THE BOAT!

When Jesus was sleeping in the boat and a very bad storm came, they woke Jesus up, they were so afraid as the boat was taking in water, they thought they would die, but Jesus was in that boat. Jesus is in your boat, so...DO NOT GET OUT OF THE BOAT.

All of Hells fury was in that storm, as was the one Paul was in, the men aboard also wanted to get out of that boat, Paul said, DO NOT GET OUT OF THE BOAT and you will live. They stayed, they made it to the Island, but they had a bad shipwreck before, Now, they were told if they jumped ship, they would die, they had to stay in the boat. What this says too us is, you may be in a bad place, your boat can be anything, you fill in the blank. The lord is with you, " I will never leave you, or forsake you, lo I am with you, even unto the end".

The Christian walk on earth, filled with storms, islands, havens, times of rest, nice sails, and severe storms. This is the Christian walk, we are on one side-this world, but we are told to go to the other side- Heaven, our whole life is that journey, may we never get out of the boat, it, Jesus, faithfulness is the only way to reach the other side, Glory, is waiting , on the other side.

You may see some rocks ahead, you may think all hope is lost, and you will no longer wait, and follow the lord, this can be a life and death decision beloved. Jesus is in you, the hope of Glory, you have the Holy Spirit inside you, you are that Temple, you are that vessel, that boat, but Jesus is not the Co-Pilot, He is the Pilot, the Captain of our Salvation.

No matter what you think, see, no matter what may come, and what you think may come, and it does not, these are the rocks, cliffs, storms, they cause doubt. This must be given over to the lord, and in faith, stay the course, steady you mind. DO NOT GET OUT OF THE BOAT. If you do this beloved, you will make it to the other side, the word gives us promise on this, just stay in the boat, and all , one day will make sense, all will be clear, and by Grace you will be in Glory. This is the lesson. Stay in the boat, no matter what.

Love Your God to the Last Breath (David Wilkerson) 9 min video This Is The Day Wilkerson Died

Looking on You Tube for short Videos by David Wilkerson I found many I have never heard.
It has blessed me to listen, reflect and think.
I have been re reading what I feel is one of Wilkerson's best if you can find it get it the title,

'Hungry For More Of Jesus-Experiencing His Presence In These Troubled Times' 

I was thinking also on Wilkerson's prophecy from 2019 , the lord spared this man of God from having to go through what he gave as a warning. 

May this last short video bless you as it has me.

One point, David Wilkerson died on April 29, 2011-that is a 911, I feel that also is a warning , a 911 concerning America. Just a thought.

We will see in May much more of the same that we have been seeing, and this will continue in all of 2016.

 Listen, if you do not know Jesus as lord and Savior I plead you  accept him today, time is up, the writing is on the wall and it is time to wake up and arise.

David Wilkerson The Four Horsemen Ride 3 Min Video-Video 2 Of David Wilkerson Week

Beloved this is one powerful short video, a true prophetic warning.

Uploaded on Aug 18, 2011

Beyond popular belief, many scriptures in the bible talk about God's judgement coming in the last days. In light of this, 2 Peter 3:11 says, "Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?"

4 Days of Remembering David Wilkerson- Video Short Number One-He Died April 29, 2011

I decided for the next four days to post mostly video shorts of David Wilkerson.
He was killed on April 29, 2011.

His ministry is brought to the forefront, he was not God, he was not the Protestant Pope, but he was a anointed man of God. 

May we remember his message, warnings and comfort to the remnant bride he gave.

This first video I will start with a short of him giving a warning.

It is more real today then before.

Heed, yet another warning and a powerful word.

David Wilkerson - Get Right With God! 9 Min Video

Our Transfiguration New Insight-I Saw This Post Get Some Reads- Did Not Recall It -Repost Good Meat

Rom 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service.

Rom 12:2  And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, and ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

2Co 3:18  But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.

The message I want to expound on today is how we are transformed and what it means.

In the Greek the word in Rom 12:2 Transformed, is the same Greek word transfigured used in the Gospels, the mount of Transfiguration. I did not know that, we should learn everyday.
This was very thought provoking; the same word that we are to be is the lit. Word meaning for our lord’s transfiguration. This at first is hard to grasp. Powerful, I hope I can write it, as it is not easy.

The bible says,” We go from glory to glory…”
It is a process, like the Greek words mean, as a butterfly appears from a cocoon it changes to another image, a different insect, from a caterpillar to an insect with wings. Look close at the butterfly, you can see the similarity of what it was, but slightly different, the biggest difference is it morphs into an insect with wings. A metamorphism, the English word taken from our Greek text.



When Moses came down from the mount he did not know his face was shinning so bright, it was not for Moses, it was for the others to see. He did not know he was glowing, radiating such light. We have gone from the Glory. From the O.T. where sin was only atoned for one day, to another Glory, salvation for ever, if we stay true to the lord.



In the text we are to be transformed, changed into the image of Christ.
We do not become little gods’s as some doctrines teach, this is not a new doctrine, it comes from Gnosticism early in Church history.
We are changed into his image, but we were created in the image of God, we lost that image by Adam and Eve, Christ came as the second Adam to restore us, if we want all the lord has. This is Salvation at once, the 180 degree change we should make if we are truly saved, we are still in a battle with the flesh, but we are changing, going forward, and in the School of Christ, this is sanctification, it takes us from glory to glory, and faith to faith.



The bible says, “Walk in the spirit, and have fruit keeping instep with our profession of salvation”.
This says we are to be going forward, progress, changed, form glory to glory, and more and more in the image of Christ. This lit. Transfiguration of the less flesh dominated, and more spirit, is what the bible teaches, we as Christians, are to be doing.



At times we all blow it, we repent and move on, this will never end until we are in glory, but progress of some sort, fruit of the Spirit, should be developed, this is living and walking in the Spirit.



The Spiritual application I want to make is this; Today many Christians and society as a whole, are a cocoon generation, no change, just in a pod, cell phones, internet, rental movies, have changed life as we know it, but we are not to conform to this world but be transformed by the renewal of our minds.
I remember years ago, I was reading a required sociology text, it was all about the cocoon generation, that was 25 years ago, it is more so today. Many are changing, but the change is backward not forward. Many are like a caterpillar, slowly hanging out on a tree or the ground, going five miles and hour and happy with it.



The lord wants us to take up wings as an Eagle; if we do we shall walk and not be weary, run and not faint. This is saying we can, should, must , soar above the hindrances, the besting sins, we should be doing, making progress, learning every day, practicing our faith, becoming more and more changed into our lords image.



Paul said, “He no longer looks behind but stretches, strains ahead…”
We are not saved by works, but we are to have faith that works.
Quality time in the word and prayer brings the daily renewal of mind. It changes us from the present glory to more glory. More and more of the manifest presence of the lord is what we should seek, less and less of the world.
The holy life, few want it today, ‘without holiness no man shall see God’. This is no small matter, progressive sanctification, is part of our discipleship.



Reader I ask you, are you stuck in a cocoon? Are you going 5 miles an hour and happy with it, if so this is why you are weary, why you faint, meaning losing heart. Going backward, to the old way you were, back to things you once forsook.



 If we abide in Christ, he will abide in us, this will bring, gradual, but dramatic change, you will have the glow of the lord on your face, you will have victory and bounce to your step, walking in joy, peace, and power, this is the only way to live a true Christian life, this life I speak of is the only thing that will bring true peace and fulfillment into the most mundane things in our life.
 Be transformed, transfigured , back in to the image of Christ.



Where ever you failed, go back to the time you were in the victory, when you had peace, and you will gain it back, this process takes stretching forward and laboring in prayer and the word, but it is worth it all.
This is the only time you must go backward to go forward. Think on this.
