Let's have a prayer please. Can we just bow for a moment in Gods presence, in prayer. Our Father, we bless thee, for Jesus the Christ our savior whose blood has cleansed and washed us, and saved us from hell, and damnation, and judgment. We bless thee for Jesus; above all things. We bless the for the Holy Spirit, who shall not speak of Himself, but His whole work is to glorify Christ, to conform us into the image of Christ, and so we bless thee that thy Holy Spirit in faithfulness to thy word will come, and make the word of God living tonight. Though it comes through the bassist and weakest of men. We bless thee for thy father heart, and compassion, and longsuffering, and patience with me, and each one of us, whom thou has saved, and held, and carried in thine arms, and lifted up countless times when we didn't deserve it, and in love never given up on us. Oh we love thee. Oh we bless thee, that thou art our father in heaven. We bless thee for everyone that is come to this convention. We bless thee, that they've come in love with Christ longing for God to meet with them afresh. We bless the dear God, that thou has brought us safely, and that thou would in mercy bring , those who are still to come, in safety along the roads, and to us. Prepare all of our hearts by the Holy Ghost, to create in us a thirst for God. Not just to be touched by God, but to be so radically transformed, that our lives would stager this world, as we go back in it. Come, for we ask these things for thy glory. Wash me especially, in the blood afresh, the blood of God the Son. Wash me, that I might be a vessel for the masters use. For, without the blood I have nothing, nothing to show thee as to why thou wouldst look on such a man as me. Oh God, fill me with the Holy Spirit. Anoint me, quicken my mind, and thought, cleanse the atmosphere of the blood of Christ from the powers of darkness. Surround this convention, and all the areas where the angels of God with swords drawn to do war, and battle against the powers of darkness thou has said we wrestle against, and who appose us. Oh our God, have mercy. Please God, protect us under the blood now, for thy words sake, not for my sake. In Jesus the Christ's name, In Jesus the Christ's name we all unitedly agree, and ask these things of thee our Father in heaven, amen.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
In the beginning, God created, created, created, the heaven, and the earth, the earth. Verse six: "…and God said, let there be a firmament, let the be a firmament in the midst of the waters". Now, beloved the earth is surrounded by layers of gases. Each layer having it's own unique composition, but mainly composed of nitrogen, and oxygen, and held in position; held in place by gravitational attraction. Now, this atmosphere protects the earth from harmful radiation, and absorbs the suns energy maintaining an average surface temperature of fourteen degrees centigrade. Verse six: "…and God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters".
Verse nine: "…and God said, let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear. Ah beloved, seventy percent of the earths surface is covered by water. Seventy percent of the earths surface is covered by water. Submerged, submerged mainly beneath four huge oceans known as the Pacific, the Atlantic, the Indian, and the Artic Oceans. The Pacific is so vast, that it covers one-third of the earths surface, one third of the earths surface, the Atlantic one-fifth, and the Indian one-seventh. God said, "Let the waters under the heaven, be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear". Let the dry land…Land covers approximately thirty percent of the earths surface. Divided into seven land masses called continents known as Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australasian. Now, Antarctica contains ninety percent of the earths ice. It's the earths coldest continent. Ten percent of the earths surface is ice, ninety percent of that at the earths south pole known as Antarctica. Antarctica is roughly the size of Europe as a continent, but it is covered by a two kilometer thick sheet of ice. Two kilometer thick sheet of ice, reaching at its center of the continent four point five kilometers in thickness. From the highest peak on land, (which is Mount Everest in the Himalayas of Asia) twenty-nine thousand and twenty-eight feet above sea level, twenty-nine thousand and twenty-eight feet above sea level. Reaching down to the lowest spot on earth, beneath the seas, and the sea bed, (known as the Mariana Trench west of the Philippians) thirty-five thousand eight hundred feet below sea level. To the lowest basin on land, four hundred meters below sea level, (at the Dead Sea in Jordan in Israel). Oh…Verse six: "…and God said, let there be a firmament, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters". Verse nine: "…and God said, let the waters under the heaven, be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear, let the dry land appear".
Verse eleven: "…and God said, let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind". There are approximately two hundred and fifty thousand species of vegetation upon the earth. The say, the species of the species make it three hundred and fifty thousand species, but I would say uniquely as species, two hundred and fifty thousand. Isn't that precious? Not just one, to look over and say, "Beauty", in one word God created two hundred and fifty thousand species of vegetation, and plant. Oh Halleluiah, "…and God said, let the earth bring forth grass the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind whose seed is in itself upon the earth".
Verse fourteen: "…and God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven, let there be lights! Lights! In the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night". Verse sixteen: "…and God made two great lights. The greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, He made the stars also". Oh beloved, this universe is beyond all human comprehension; it baffles the scientists. You want to know why? God takes you at your best human, and makes you baffled at His greatness. Oh, unable to comprehend let a lone act authoritive because you've got a telescope now. Oh no, this universe is beyond all human comprehension. There's an unknown amount of galaxies, unknown. They can't find the end of the next galaxy, and then they find another one. Galaxies each containing a vast amount of stars, similar to our sun. In our galaxy the solar system, our sun is one hundred and nine times the size of the earth. One hundred and nine times the size of our earth, it is a huge ball of gas, mainly composed of hydrogen, infusing helium to create energy and light and heat reaching into our galaxy, into all parts of our galaxy. It's beyond comprehension that God could have this sun. Created around our sun called the solar system, there are nine planets; orbiting I suppose you could call it, but each having its unique orbit that doesn't make sense in many ways, but it's amazing the orbit of these, all around what we call our galaxy, our solar system, that which revolves around our sun in their own unique orbits. They say there's a tenth planet now, I believe them "xana" discovered about two years ago, and they call it xana. That's now making it ten planets, and they'll probably discover more as they get a little bit more wisdom how to look deeper into God's universe, but of these planets there is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Saturn is one thousand three hundred times the size of our earth. Now, that's beyond comprehension, one thousand three hundred times the size of our earth.
That's nothing by the way, just to divert for a moment. They found in further galaxies, and this is no exaggeration, they found that there's a star they call "Antares" it is sixty four million times the size of our sun. they don't doubt it, nor do I, why should I? God can do anything, and He did. This is nothing, sixty four million times the size of our sun, they found in a further galaxy a star they call "Hercules" which is one hundred million times the size of Antares. They're still trying to work out how that's possible, how to even comprehend it let a lone put it down in writing. Oh God is great, His greatness has to be beyond all comprehension, because otherwise if we can explain God, well He's not God. He has to be beyond all human comprehension, He has to leave man baffled, but enthralled, because they can't deny this just happened, it must be a creator, it must be a creator.
Oh in our galaxy, our solar system going around with these ten planets orbited, there's also comets. Such as, the famous "Hallies Comet", every seventy-six years it's orbit, (which takes seventy-six years in the solar system) it come close, the closest to the earth, nine-teen eighty-six was the last time it happened, and you see this amazing ice; this ball of ice shooting across in space; amazing. Comets, just comets. There's asteroids, these huge mountains of rock, a few hundred kilometers in width. Just shooting through space, mainly found between mars, and Jupiter, between the orbits of Mars, and Jupiter. These huge mountains of rocks, oh God is beyond comprehension of what He did in one word, in one word, and man tries to put Him in a box, oh how could you? Oh beloved, beloved it's precious to see God's hand in everything He lets man just catch a glimpse of, to see the greatness of our God. The sovereignty, the awe of a creator such as ours.
God said, let there be lights in the firmament on the heaven" verse fourteen. Verse sixteen: "…and God made two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, (that's the sun) the lesser light to rule the night, (that's our moon) a quarter of the size of the earths diameter. There are sixty-one moons in the solar system, our galaxy "The Milky Way", many of these planets have a number of moons, we have one, but there's sixty-one all together in our solar system.
Verse twenty-four: "…and God said, let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life. Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth, in the open firmament of heaven. There are twenty-four thousand known species of fish, of course there's so many living things in the sea, but a fish is something with a back bone, and a skeleton otherwise it's not a fish. Twenty-four thousand species of fish known to man. That is precious, God said in one word, let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven". There's nine thousand species of birds; known living species of birds, nine thousand approximately.
Verse twenty four, verse twenty four: "…and God said, God said, let the earth bring forth the living creature. Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind". Now beloved, there's approximately one million species of animals that are on record. One million unique species of animals known to man, one million. There's four thousand two hundred and fifty, four thousand two hundred and fifty species of mammals; known species; living species today. There is six thousand species of reptiles. There is nine hundred and fifty thousand species of insects; nine hundred and fifty thousand in one word, in one word. You can argue against it till dooms day, and say, "It's not possible" or you can say, "God can do anything, beyond our comprehension", and believe it without any doubt, which I do with all my heart. God is so great, God is so great Halleluiah.
Verse twenty six: "…and God said, let us make man". I love that verse. Obviously God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit the Triune God. The trinity is from verse one right through the bible bye the way, "elohiym". In the begging God-elohiym, plural. They still can't work out why God put the word plural, it's not singular it has to be more than one, "and the Spirit of God" – two verses later, capital S. the third person of the trinity. "Let us…" verse twenty six: "…make man in our image". That to me is beyond comprehension, but I believe it. "After our likeness". "When we shall see Him…" John says, "…we shall be like Him". We shall see Him face to face, I believe that. I can't comprehend it, but I believe it. "Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the fowl of the air, of the cattle, over all the earth, over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth". God said, "Let us make man, for all this…", man was now made. For all this, for this was made, don't doubt it, for me, and you; to love God, to live in awe of every petal of the fact of life in vegetation. There was nothing God didn't make to make you and me love Him, and live in awe and reverence of Him, and worship for fear. Oh, God created man in His own image.
Psalm nineteen, verse one: "The heavens declare the glory of God". Don't they? The heavens declare (to the world) there's a God! Or you're a fool if you can't see it. Oh forgive me, I can't say you're a fool, but God say's. The heavens declare (to you and me) there has to be God. This couldn't have happened by mistake, or by spasms and sparks you know, oh goodness me. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth, showeth His handiwork. Psalm fourteen, verse one: "The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God".
Romans one, verse twenty: "For the invisible things of Him, (the invisible things of Him) from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made even as eternal power, and God had, so that they were without excuse" Paul says. You have no excuse sir, you will be judged; with such judgment that you allowed to reach from some intellectual persuasion to your heart. Professing themselves to be wise they became fools! God say's, not me. God forbid the day will come when I can't say what God says, but it might come soon, so let me say it now; what God says, and loud and clear to you all. No matter what your persuasion right now; please consider what God says about you. If you can't see His handiwork.
Psalm eight, verse three: "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon, and the stars which thou hast ordained. What is man? What is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou visiteth him?" Oh wonder of wonders beloved. This God of all creation is mindful of me, He thinks about me, He has thoughts of me, He thinks of me, and would visit me, He would meet with me; God says. It's beyond comprehension. Just as God looked upon this planet beloved, just as God looked upon this earth, when it was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters, and God said, Let there be lights, and there was lights; so with me. God looked upon me, in my darkened estate, and my last estate when I was lost and without hope, or knowledge of what it's all about, confusion in spiritual darkness I had no idea what it was all for. Just as God looked upon me; void, meaningless of my life, lost in spiritual darkness invading my whole being, God in compassion by Holy Spirit moved upon me, upon my darkened estate, and God cried upon my heart, "Let the be light", and the was light beloved. There was light halleluiah.
Oh listen, to Gods account of my Genesis chapter one: (at least I believe, I embrace it that way. No matter how many doctrinal geniuses might tell me, "Look this was about Israel", but listen, this was not history, everything was written from me and you. For Gods raiment to reach, and say what it's all about in his heart; nothing was history. It's the living word of God. Now listen to God's Genesis of me. In Ezekiel sixteen, verse four: "…and as for thy nativity, in the day thou was born. None I pitied thee to do any of these unto thee, but thou was cast out in the open field. To the loathing person in the day that thou was born, and when I past by thee, and saw the polluted in thine own blood I said unto thee, when thou wast in they blood, Live, Live. Yea, I said unto thee when thou was in thy blood, live". God moved upon my darkened estate, and God reached out, and cried out, "Let there be light to this darkened heart" and there was light. God saw me lost, and God reached out, and embraced my life, and made me His own, and I was born again by the Spirit of God. Spiritually, not physically now, that left me in my darkened estate, but now I had to become Gods creation. If any man be in Christ, is a new creation is the literal word, not creature. All things are passed away, all things are become new, and all things are of God; if you're really saved. Nothing from me, (apart from my yielding to His known will, and word).
Oh beloved, it took a miracle to put the stars in space. It took a miracle to hang this world in place, but when he saved my soul; cleanse it, and made me whole. It took a miracle of love, and grace; just as Gods word (spoken word) as He spoke light was given where there was darkness, just as Gods spoken word wrought light, (light that pervaded the darkness) so Gods written word, wrought light to my heart. It's as powerful as the word that was spoken in the creation. To create light now, to darkened hearts. The letter killeth, but the Spirit; the same Holy Spirit that moved upon the face of the waters, and said let there be light, this Spirit gives life to the letter that killeth. The Spirit giveth light. The written word now, reaching out to me by the Holy Spirits revelation, and illumination to my heart through it; brings light to darkness, spiritually brings life.
Oh, let there be light. He called us to come out of darkness into His marvelous light, and I did, by yielding, and believing, and my faith in the word of God. For, faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God wrought light, and salvation; eternal life to my heart. Jesus said, "I am the light of the world". The darkness, spiritual darkness He's talking of. Listen to John, listen to this amazing John, John one, verse one: "In the beginning…". That's wonderful that he uses those words. you think he wasn't thinking of Genesis one? "In the beginning was the Word…" (capital W, that's a person) "…and the word was with God, and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God, all things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made, in Him was life, and the life was the light of men, and the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not. There was man sent from God his name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the light that all man through him might believe. He was not that light, but was sent to bear witness of that light. That was the true light, which lighted every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not, but; but as many as received Him, to them gave He a power to become the sons of God. Even to them that believe on His name, which were born not of blood, nor of the will of man, nor the will of the flesh, nor the will of man, but of God, and the Word (capital W) was made flesh. Halleluiah, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father. Full of grace, and truth; great is the mystery of godliness, God was manifest in the flesh".
Halleluiah. To save my soul and yours, and that raiment, that amazing revelation to the word of God wrought faith, wrought light as I read from this book, as I heard it being preached. the written word being illuminated the "He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all". God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life". Halleluiah. Everlasting life through Christ.
But wait now beloved, just as God did not finish His work on this earth, when God came in the void and chaotic state of the world; when it was without form or void, and God moved upon the darkness, and God wrought light, and God brought order from the chaos of that moment, by His Holy Spirit. Just as God did that, you must take note: that wasn't the end. God went on, clothing, clothing in tenderness, clothing in love, bringing out beauty, and perfection, and all that's beyond comprehension. Just as God went on to perfect this earth, so, when God came in light in my heart; when God came and wrought light, and salvation, and I was born of God that was just the beginning; that wasn't the end. God has to go on, and to perfect me, and He will perfect that which He begin a work in; God says. He will conform me more, and more into the image of Christ. It doesn't all happen in one moment though. That's why Peter says in second Peter four, (one, verse four): "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great, and precious promises". You see, it's the Holy Spirit again, the word that continues to cloth us, that continues to perfect us as we apply, as we yield to light that God gives more and more. That the path of the justices is shinning light, that shineth more, and more unto the perfect day". It isn't all just in one moment; more comes through, Gods word, Gods Holy Spirit; revolution, revelation coming through this Holy book.
Oh, just as God wrought perfection. Oh on, and on, next, next mighty, and miraculous beyond comprehension change into perfection of the earth; so in my heart. Whereby are given unto us exceeding great, and precious promises that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature. Having escaped the corruption that is in the world, through lust. Now, that's a wonderful testimony, but that's not the end, that's just the beginning, because the next verse isn't beside this: Beside being made a partaker of the divine nature, and escaping that you're partakers of the divine nature, that's just the beginning. Beside this, giving all diligence add to your faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, and to knowledge temperance (that means self control), and to temperance patience (that means steadfast), and to patience godliness, and to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things be in you, and abound they make you that ye shall neither be barren, nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, but he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see a far off, and hath forgotten that he was purged form his own sins. Wherefore there are the brethren, give diligence to make your calling, and election sure. For if ye do these things, ye shall never fall. For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly, and to the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Don't think it ends there friend, when God saves you it's the beginning of what he expects you to let his word do as faith brings more light, and you yield to it, and become more, and more by the word in the Spirit of God through His word; conformed into the image of Christ, perfection. For this is what is in His heart before the foundation of the world, (in spite of what He knew evil would do) to bring men back if they of their own free will respond to his sovereign grace. Work that out, to those of you that know what I'm saying; but praise the Lord it's true.
Then, there's something strange to consider about the earth. There's a time this earth will pass away God says. The whole universe; in one amazing moment of a word from God who created it all, God will let every single thing be devoured in the most terrifying, awesome language the bible can give. That, we can catch a glimpse, and fear what's coming, and it could happen tonight. Or don't you think that's possible? Oh beloved, listen: just as this earth must cease, must be destroyed, so you and I are going to be. This mortal must put on immortality; it has to be, we don't live forever on this earth, Thank God. As beautiful as it is, the fall has made it that there has to be. Oh, we cannot endure this earth for eternity. Please don't let that be so. Thank God, this mortal must be destroyed. To put on immortality Corinthians tells me. "Just as the earth…" (Revelation twenty-one, verse one) John says, "…and I saw a new heaven, and a new earth". Second Peter three, verse ten: "But the day of the Lord will be as a thief in the night". No one knows the moment; not even the angels. Just God the Father. "…in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness".
God asks you, and me, "Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness". Oh, because you and I brother like the earth, like the heavens must be destroyed must leave this mortal to put on immortality. We must. The whole creation groans travails. Paul will tell this in Romans: "Longing for the redemption of the body". Set the prisoners of the earth free God says. That's all we are until God delivers us. we also groan within ourselves waiting for the adoption that is the redemption of the body through Christ. Oh, this is a moment of deliverance form this earth, there's a moment this earth will be delivered from all the devil did, and then the universe will be devoured, and the elements shall melt, and we beloved must be godly conscious that this is coming. This is coming soon, this is coming soon, and He shall appear, we shall be like Him. For, we shall see Him as He is, and every man that hath this hope in him purifyeth himself even as He is pure. Now, that's beyond my understanding doctrinally, but that's Gods word.
There's something in us, "Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation (that means living) and godliness". Oh beloved, beloved I hope your whole being cries out; cries out, "Let me be in all holiness (godly living) and conversation when thou shall appear. Now, little children abide in Him that when he should appear that we shall have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. Don't tell me that's a doctrinal statement. That's just the word of God, forgive me for quoting it. Can we stand please? Can you bow your heads please?
Father in mercy help everyone of us to endeavor as never before. To worship God, to be, perfect worshippers of God. Not to by pass the flowers because we're strong men, but to look at that because God made it for me. To see in everything, that which make me worship God yourself. for His greatness, and that in His greatness, He stooped to me to save my soul that I can walk like Enoch with God, and be like Abraham the friend of God, and like David a man after Gods own heart, and like Daniel greatly beloved; greatly beloved, and like John the disciple whom Jesus Loved.
Oh God help us. for all thy greatness that has reached our hearts to walk with God in worship and wonder, keeping ourselves pure. Keeping ourselves unspotted from the world, and abiding in Him that when He shall appear we shall have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. Come God, let all the scriptures work faith, and carefulness, and wonder, and worship in our hearts in a way that we've never known before in our lives. That the word of God shall not return unto thee void; even the words we considered tonight, let them accomplish the purpose for which they were sent, for us. take what's left of this convention, and make it Holy.
Visit us. let thy thoughts that thou wouldst have toward us; thy longings for us to be thine, and to be absolutely surrendered, and filled, controlled by God the Holy Ghost, and to walk with God. Let these things happen to such a depth in everyone of our lives, as we yield to God, as we come in to this building thirsting for God. Keep us safe tonight in this convention center. From all the powers of darkness keep us under the blood of Christ. Hedge us in, like thou has hedge Job even so Satan couldn't get near him. Please God come and protect us by the risen resurrected power of Christ and the Holy Spirit brewed upon this place, and draw us closer to God.
Come bless us in our quiet times alone with Jesus; the most precious moment of life each day is to be alone with Jesus. Otherwise, we miss the mark totally everyday. Help us to have a good time with Jesus. Help us to have peaceful sleep. Help us to come tomorrow morning with thirst, and longing, and joy at the consciousness that God wants to mold me more unto His image, and light, and life.
Come help the preachers. Help my darling wife as she speaks and addresses the ladies and the girls. Give that which she has prepared herself for months and a lifetime. Share it through her in a way that everyone hears her speak will never be able to be the same, their consciences will never allow it. Give her liberty, and let us all sense the presence of God as she ministers; those who gather to hear her, and my son Roy as he ministers to the men and the boys. Come anoint his young life and speak to the depth of every heart in the most precious way that will be of eternal value. Not just to stir us for a moment. Please God anoint him, prepare him, and visit through him, and our fellowship let it be sweet through tomorrow.
Tomorrow night dear God visit us, and everyone that comes on these grounds; don't let them come with the wrong atmosphere, a wrong spirit. Let them come conscious that all of us are just throbbing in our love for Christ, in our longing to be all he wants to do with us. Come let them be conscious of that, and let them join in, in seeking God with all their heart. Come visit us tomorrow night. Visit us that we may never ever recover. Only God can do that, no man. Shall we look away from men; our expectations on thee and thee only, but we want it. We want it with a pure motive and no glory of man or movement should change us; just for Jesus Christ's smile is all we live for; nothing else.
Come do these things for thy glory. Strengthen those who are weary, like Bro. Don and Vickie; sister Vickie and their children, and Bro. Randy Coffman and his wife and children; and everyone else Lord, everyone involved in the organizing, the love the tenderness of the meals and the preparation of the hall, and the flowers and everything that's everywhere must have taken effort and time. Strengthen them, touch their bodies and minds, and lift them up, and honor them; honor them, honor them God, because they seek all these things for Gods glory.
We all ask these things in the name that we love, and that we live for. In the name that we'd gladly die for. In the name of Jesus our savior and dearest friend. Amen.
