Temple Baptist Church - 6-3-2017Exodus 17:9-16Introduction:A. The Amalekites were the perpetual enemies of Israel. They ALWAYS fought them. The Amalekites are a type of both the devil and our flesh in this regard. B. This passage is an excellent example of the church/pastor relationship.1. Just as Israel needed Moses, the church needs a pastor. But just as Moses needed Aaron and Hur, the pastor needs people to hold up his hands. This includes both men and women. 2. Too often, people who love their pastor still get the mindset that the ministry and local church are his responsibility alone. When a church gets “too large” for the pastor to handle or the pastor gets old enough to have to slow down, it becomes time to get an “assistant to the pastor” to carry out the responsibility.C. This is a message of how much we need one another at Temple Baptist Church. The pastor needs the people as much, if not more, than they need him. Our is a reciprocal relationship. I want to look at the story for a minute and then draw some biblical conclusions that will help our church.D. Spiritual war is a thing of perpetuality. Exodus 17:16 “war with Amalek from generation to generation.” War is not a new thing! We are not alone in it as God's people have always had to fight for what is right. 1. Spiritual war is perpetual because churches are full of people and people have problems. My pastor used to say, “If people did not have problems, they would not need a pastor. If they did not need a pastor, you would have to get a legitimate job!” I always wondered if pastoring was therefore a de-legitimate job? 😊2. Spiritual war is perpetual because the local church has enemies who would destroy the unity, purity, and work of the church. At times, our church is infiltrated with people who are not in doctrinal agreement or bring division.3. Spiritual war is perpetual because Satan hates the local church and will go to any length to destroy it or its pastor. Cut off the head and the church may die.E. We find several things in our passage that directly affect the local church and God's men.1. There is Outward War. Exodus 17:8 “Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim” a. Against The Flesh - Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. (You can hold up my hands in prayer that I will neither fall nor fail in this life. Pastors are just men and men are human.)b. Against The Devil - Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Satan is a formidable foe and God's men do not need to stand alone in the battle for doctrinal purity, spiritual purity, and unity in the church. As I stand for right, you need to openly stand with men.)2. There is Inward War. Exodus 17:11-12 “And when he let down his hand … but Moses' hands were heavy” The Attrition Rate Is Great. a. God's People Get Tired And Quit - 2 Timothy 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. (Many of God's people have become disappointed or just plain beaten down by circumstances. Life is hard; life is unfair; sorrow and suffering are a way of life.)b. God's Men Get Tired And Quit - Jeremiah 20:7-9 O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me. 8 For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily. 9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, (We older pastors get tired, both physically and emotionally. Perpetual war is never ending, it never lets up. A pastor must “keep his ear to the ground” always. He cannot rest from war as eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.)3. The Warning. Exodus 17:11 “and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.”a. The People Could Not Prevail Without God's Man - Matthew 9:36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. (Without God's man, the church people will begin to faint and scatter. This is the way that God intended the church to be. Churches without pastors tend to decline rapidly.)b. The Preacher Could Not Persevere Without God's People - Romans 16:1-6 I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: 2 That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also. 3 Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: 4 Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. 5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my wellbeloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ. 6 Greet Mary, who bestowed much labour on us. (As the people of the church need God's men, God's men need the people of the church. None of us can stand alone.)4. The Winning. Exodus 17:12-13 “And they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. (13) And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.” Together they overcame Amalek!a. Israel Needed Moses During The Battle. If Moses' hands were raised, Israel prevailed. Church members need God's men!b. Moses Needed Israel During The Battle. When Moses' hands began to fail, Aaron and Hur seated him to rest and held up his hands. God's men need the local church people.c. You need the pastor and the pastor needs you! The work is not mine; the work is not yours; the work of the local church is OURS!5. The Witness. Exodus 17:14-15 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. (15) And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi: a. God's People need to Remember – “memorial”b. God's People need to Rehearse It – “rehearse it” Rehearse – to practice.Conclusion:Ecclesiastes 4:7 –12 Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun. 8 There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail. 9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.1. We Need To Hold Each Other Up In Prayer – You pray for me as I pray for you!2. We Need To Hold Each Other Up In Encouragement – Do not always have to be encouraged, but be an encouragement! 3. We Need To Hold Each Other Up In Faithfulness – You be as faithful to me as I am to you! 4. We Need To Hold Each Other Up In Service – Help with both the physical and spiritual work of the ministry! 5. We Need To Hold Each Other Up In Battle – Be there for me when trouble comes. I will be there for you!
It’s time to make God’s heart happy by going soul winning! His last command should be our first priority. Don’t let the things of this world make you disobedient to the heavenly vision. Our purpose is to glorify the Lord and the way we do that is by sharing the gospel and making disciples. People […]The post 4 Fold Focus of Soul Winning appeared first on Jaysen Brown.
AMEN DAY. House calls on mountain tops.... We saved the hardest for last day of a week of hard soulwinning with our medical team that is visiting. A small field but white unto harvest. Was well ripened fruit on the mountain top. 3 hour very rough ride up. We got a late start because the old kia lost the clutch and was delayed an hour. And opted to split the team and use the new motocarga and see if it would make it.(it did). But the newer kia lost the trailer on the rough trail so yet another delay. Finally arrived and find the building we were to use under construction. Ask around and one man who was present a few weeks ago when I preached up there let us use his small home...on the other side of the riverbed and 100yards up the mountain... and haul all the medical and gear across and up. We saw over 200 souls trust the LORD just in this village... even with a late arrival due to loosing the trailer on the rough road. The Drs managed to see what seemed to be every needy villager for meds and glasses... house calls even. Two of them so sick they will likely not finish the month yet pleading for Christ. An older deaf mute man got glasses and just lit up. He could see clearly for the first time. Pastor Augusto worked a long while with him with hands and pictures ect. In the end he too prayed for salvation. Some of those in the village made food for our soul winners and asked if they would build a church and they would give land available for it. Truly tree hanging well ripened fruit... The soul winning was done in the dried riverbed under the only shade... very "John the Baptist" like. Beautiful to watch...Pray for more capacity and labourers... this kind of ministry is fruitful but taxing. It needs youthful legs and hearts, funds to cover the greater expense in logistics and maintance. Tires bust, rims bend, rear ends break, backs hurt... But it is well worth it reaching the vine ripened fruit in the uttermost parts... The fields are still white in the uttermost parts... but the labourers are few... and funds even less.We saw many hundreds (700+) put their faith in Christ this week. Much work left to do to follow up. Was a great team. Thank you Truth for today for coming and the Americans who sacrificed to come. And thank you to our own Hondurans who also laboured hard and sacrificed to harvest the field this week... all are very very tired. But joyful and content..
Drinking_CoffeeThe great thing about the Internet is that everything is just a click away. If you’re interested in finding information, all you have to do is key a few words into the address bar of your browser and within seconds you will have all the facts, statistics, articles, and reviews that you might need. If you’re interested in purchasing something, you have only to reach as far as your back pocket to find what you want. Grab your credit card and browse an online marketplace to make instant purchases. You can even order home-delivery pizza from several major franchises directly through their websites.This kind of convenience seems to be the end-goal of every major industry. Fast food restaurants attempt to fill your drive-thru order in as little time as possible. Television networks try to provide you with your favorite TV shows according to your busy schedule through Tivo or On-Demand Pay-Per-View programming. Some stores even allow you to have your groceries delivered directly to your home. By now, your probably beginning to get the idea. Convenience vs. Character Most people have been conditioned by these luxuries into what I like to call an ‘instant gratification mindset.’ People with this mindset always seem to be in a hurry. They want things now, and I mean right now! They are in a hurry to get things they want, in a hurry to make a lot of money through get-rich-quick schemes, in a hurry to see something finished that normally requires a lot of time and hard work and, last but not least, in a hurry to see results.Years ago there was a maxim: Patience is a virtue. A few generations ago, Americans believed that the key to being wealthy was through years of hard work and a solid buy-and-hold investing strategy. Former generations of Americans avoided debt like the plague. They would never have imagined putting a new pair of shoes on a credit card since they wouldn’t have enough money to pay for them for a few more months. They saved and spent only the money they had. Theirs was a generation, not of instant gratification, but of patience. The truth in this principle has nearly been forgotten to today’s modern society. The World's Influence On Christianity As America continues this downward spiral toward impatience and instant gratification, she seems to be dragging Christianity along for the ride. American Christians seem to typify these same negative character traits leading to a drastic decline in their spirituality and in their ability to positively influence the world.Christians seem to be living their lives in such a hurry that they neglect the very activities that they were commanded to be doing. Many Christians have stopped praying because they didn’t see instant answers. Many Christians have quit soul-winning because they didn’t claim instant conversions. Many churches have compromised on music, dress, and doctrine because standing for truth didn’t bring instant crowds.What are your thoughts? Are you one who patiently obeys and serves God or are you neglecting your responsibilities and your stand for truth because you didn’t see instant results?In Christ,Nicholas Z. Cardot
