MINISTRY

HERE AT THE CAFE WE DEAL WITH MANY COMPLEX ISSUES THAT CAN TEST THE FAITH OF THOSE FACING A TRYING FUTURE. MANY TIMES WE MUST LOOK TO THE PAST TO SEE THE FUTURE. MY FAVORITE PASTOR IS DR. CHARLES STANLEY OF IN TOUCH MINISTRIES. HE HELPS US HEAL AND GIVES US STRENGTH TO FACE WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED US FOR SERVICE. I WOULD BE REMISS NOT TO SHARE THESE AWESOME SERMONS WITH YOU. COME TO THE MINISTRY CHANNEL TO FIND REST AND SOLACE. YOU WILL LEAVE BETTER AND STRONGER LIKE I DID WHEN I TUNED IN TO DR. STANLEY.

It appears there has been a determined assault on the sermons of Dr. Charles Stanley. Virtually all of the You Tube videos have been removed from the internet. Has Satan as manifested in Google's military industrial complex seperated us from his teachings? I hope this wasn't the request on In Touch Ministries. Christ preached to the poor without charge. So must his followers. There is support to Ministry from those so blessed. The manna of the ministry is the tonic to the souls of God's people. It is good and proper to give to as many people as possible. If this was a money issue from the ministry, I am truly disappointed. We will try to restore some of the links. We will find other pertinent sermons to satiate your soul. Matthew Nolan seems to be on the same page as I. I am a pre-Constantine Christian. If we go back further, Jamesian.

    Published on 13 Aug 2015

    The Apostle Paul tells us that if Jesus is not risen from the dead, our faith is in vain. Yet, many professing Christians deny the physical resurrection of Christ. In this message, Dr. Ravi Zacharias will give a defense of the bodily resurrection of Jesus against modernist skeptics inside and outside the church and against postmoderns who don?t think it matters. He will explain that if Jesus is risen, nothing else matters, and that if Jesus is not risen, nothing else matters.

    The Price We Pay When We Complain

    These three steps can help keep our complaints constructive.

    by Joseph Stowell

    Talking with a Christian doctor about his family, I learned that all of his children were grown, happily committed to Christ, and serving in their local churches. The doctor was obviously grateful and relieved that his children had grown in the faith. As a father of three, I was intensely interested in knowing what he thought was the secret to the spiritual maturity of his children.

    He told me, "My wife and I covenanted that our children would never hear us complain or criticize the church, church leaders, or another brother or sister in Christ."

    In essence, he had made a commitment not to murmur.

    Murmuring is a form of complaining that harbors a negative attitude toward a situation or the people involved. It runs the continuum from griping about the slow driver in front of you to murmuring against the Lord for things He has permitted to come into your life. The common factor in all murmuring is a critical spirit. This kind of grumbling carries the potential for great damage and is a direct violation of God's will.

    My doctor friend wisely realized that complaining about God's work or God's people was a direct reflection on the value of God and His plan. What children would want to commit their lives to a church that is the constant object of their parents' complaints? Wise parents teach and model principles of love and prayerful intercession in regard to imperfections around them. Hearing murmuring about the family of God only gives a young child excuses for future rebellion.

    Nowhere in Scripture is murmuring more graphically depicted than in the case of the Israelites on their way to the Promised Land. When they arrive on the outskirts, twelve spies were sent to "case out" the territory. Ten spies returned with a negative report about what they had seen: "We are not able to go up against the people, for they are too strong for us. . . . The land through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size. . . . We became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight" (Numbers 13:31-33). Joshua and Caleb, the other two spies, had seen the same things. However, they advised moving forward because they had faith that God was able to deliver them.

    Several aspects of this story are instructive:

    Murmuring ignores God's potential. The report of the ten spies reflected a godless perspective. God had opened the sea to save them, the heavens to feed them, and the rocks to provide water for them. He had defeated mighty armies throughout their wilderness trek. He had freed them from perhaps the most powerful nation on the planet. Certainly He could deal with any problems the new land might present.

    Murmuring is born in the context of bad report. Sins of the tongue that spread negative reports (beguilement, gossip, slander, false witness) create an environment in which murmuring can thrive. Some people are always eager to hear negative things so they can have something to complain about.

    A murmuring spirit is quick to jump to the wrong conclusion. The grumbling Israelites blamed God for their situation and even started planning to return to Egypt (14:3)! Actually, God was as much in control as He had ever been. But once godless grumbling begins to spread, wrong conclusions are easily reached. Murmuring and beguilement go hand in hand.

    Bad judgments are spawned in the atmosphere of murmuring. The murmuring Israelites decided it would have been better to have died in Egypt. In their haste to return, they even attempted to stone the ones urging them to stop grumbling and trust in the Lord (14:10). Murmuring distorts good judgment.

    Murmuring leads to self-pity. "Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness!" (v. 2). Murmurers often feel sorry for themselves and focus on how they have been mistreated, misused, and let down.

    Murmuring thrives in an atmosphere of fear. Twice Joshua and Caleb exhorted the people not to be afraid (v. 9). But the Israelites' fear of the unknown fanned the sparks of grumbling in their midst. They were in a situation beyond their control, and they felt threatened and insecure. Their faith disappeared as their fear increased.

    Murmuring left unchecked usually breeds rebellion. Joshua and Caleb urged the murmuring Israelites not to "rebel against the Lord" (v. 9). But rather than listen to reason, the Israelites were ready to elect new leaders who would oversee their rebellious plans.

    The end result of a murmuring spirit is a general atmosphere of dissatisfaction. Criticism and complaining lead to discontent. By the end of this episode, Israel was dissatisfied with their God-given lot in life. "Majority reports" are not always trustworthy. Just because a lot of people are murmuring doesn't necessarily mean they are right. But we tend to wear fear and insecurity close to the surface, so murmuring has no trouble attracting a crowd.

    God's judgment on the Israelites was swift and final. Their murmuring had verbally defamed His presence, power, wisdom, and glory. They would not see the Promised Land, and they would be granted their misguided wish to die in the wilderness.

    The New Testament describes other situations that involved murmuring. The Pharisees murmured because of ignorance and lack of information (John 6:41-43). When the early church didn't adequately meet the needs of Greek widows, the Grecians murmured in the congregation (Acts 6:1). After Paul reminds us that "it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure" (Philippians 2:13), he then challenges us to, "Do all things without grumbling or disputing" (2:14). The presence of God and His power in us is a sufficient resource to help us cope with problems without murmuring.

    Murmuring is always a godless pastime. It's a habit that thwarts our potential in God. It refuses to believe that God can conquer any problem or condition. And it refuses to recognize that God may use negative circumstances to accomplish His best in our lives and demonstrate His glory.

    Is it ever right to express dissatisfaction? Certainly, as long as our attitudes remain grounded in the belief that God is in control and can intervene or not as He so desires. Three steps help to keep our complaints constructive:

    Pray. The psalmist often complained to God about his problems. However, he never lost confidence in God's faithfulness, power, and love. In praying we should commit our problems to God's care and willingly wait for Him to direct us to His solution.

    Take your complaints to someone with the authority to rectify the situation. Sharing problems with those who are not a part of the solution only stimulates murmuring and makes resolution more difficult. Assure the person in authority of your loyalty and desire to help. Open your mind to his or her perspective.

    Direct others to sources of help. When people come to you with problems, encourage them to go to someone in authority before discussing their situations with you any further. While it never hurts to be a good listener, many times others are looking for allies in their murmuring. Don't get caught in the middle of a conflict if you have no opportunity to bring the disagreement to an end.

    Why would anyone want to live life apart from a loving, sovereign God who knows everything, has limitless power, and is every place, all the time? So where is God in your life? In this message, Dr. Stanley reveals God?s love, goodness, and mercy. He sent His only Son, Jesus, into the world that we might discover what true life is all about. He came to bring people to saving faith and to show that our sins can be forgiven.

    My own comment would be the thing that has blocked communion with God is religion. God created man. Man created religion. Many times the weakness of man soiled the experience and actually turned man from desiring God. Sometimes error was introduced to break the better connection. To me Amen is an incantation to Amen Ra the Sun god of Egypt. If Moses led us from bondage, why would we use the words from the Pharaoh? Are we not supposed to have no other Gods before us? Why do we robotically do this? God said he wasn't in a temple. Yet we go there to find him. Why did Christ preach his Sermon on the Mount? I think the answer is very clear. He was getting close to God.



    Acts 7:48-51

    Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, 49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? 50 Hath not my hand made all these things? 51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.

    Grant R. Jeffrey was a beloved Canadian Bible teacher, evangelist and famous author, often referred to as a "great servant of God." He touched many hearts with his excellent books and his love for the Lord was unmistakable.

    His mother has shared that Grant, as a young boy was amazed by a book he found in his father's old book collection, a book on prophecy written by the late great Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse, which started him on the road to studying Bible prophecy and discussing prophecy with his father.

    You may also enjoy these other videos by Grant. He was one of my favorites. His passing left great shoes to fill. It is up to us now.

    What happened after God's funeral hello and welcome to what my people think with apologist and author Ravi Zacharias called the rise of relativism or the death of absolutes but we live in a world set but certain degrees of certainly problems with a accurate sense of reality are many and as Ravi begins with todays message and a fundamental error declaring ourselves to be God lets listen as Ravi begins Luke chapter 12 reading from verse 13 someone in the crowd said to Him teacher tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me Jesus replied who appointed me a judge or arbiter by you then He said watch out be on your guard for all types of greed mans life does not consist of the abundance of his possessions and He told them this parable the ground of a certain rich man produces a good crop he thought to himself what shall I do I have no place to store my crops then he said this is what I will do I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones and there I will store all of my grain and my goods and will say to myself you have plenty of good things laid up for years take life easy eat drink and be merry but God said to him you fool this very night your life will be demanded from you then who will get...

    The very heart of every human being is a soul remember when Jesus looked at peter and He said to peter peter whom do the people say that I am and peter gave Him scattered answers Jesus looked at him and said whom do you say that I am that is the point of Jesus' question peter looked at Him and said Jesus you are the Christ Son of the living God Jesus looked at him complementarily and said blessed are thou simon son of jonah for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you but my Father who is in Heaven what he really said is this has not come to you by way of man it has come to you by way of God and then it said as soon as peter had made that recognition it says from that moment on I think it is pivotal from that moment on Jesus began to tell them how He must suffer and die that shameful death and as soon as He described His cross bound journey peter looked at Him and said not so Lord and Jesus reverses the compliment into a warning now and says simon you are not listening to the voice of God you are listening to the voice of men and looks at them and says if anyone comes after me let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me for what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul what will you give says Jesus in exchange for your soul

     

    He moves you and me from the soulishness of man thats why when you see a man binding his enemies wounds you see something soulish about him thats why when you see a helpless orphan rescued you see something soulish about the rescue thats why when we see something noble we think there is something soulish about it it is not merely flesh and blood there is something of a spirit in all of that so if God is dead the body has to be taken as the soul and I don't know how one can live with that to live with a constant sense of contradiction now wasn't it worth coming just to hear that what He is really saying is when soulishness is gone and body is all that is left you live with a constant sense of contradiction and nothing will make sense anymore if God is dead you have to take man to be God if God is dead you have to take the body to be the soul and lastly if God is dead you have to take time to realise there is no eternity your body with be devoured alright so if there is no God than time has to become eternity so if you see a 5 year old killed in a tragic accident it is no more a meaningful a fact that a 95 year old who has died a very natural death because death is the end of all and there is no eternity life becomes completely senseless time becomes eternity but to the man without God there is no hope when my father died in 1979 he had gone in for open heart surgery and the doctors told us he was the perfect candidate and would do very well after the surgery was over and he would be the best he had ever been he was 77 years old then and still working and in very many ways so healthy he drove himself into the hospital I was the last one to speak to him he was quite scared about this surgery and wasn't sure whether he should have really had it as he is wheeled in many hours go by and the appointed time came when the doctor was to come and see us and long after that he gathers us together and says children he is holding a pencil in his hand and he says I don't have very good news for you he said your father something has gone wrong in the surgery he is not doing well I said doctor are you saying my father is dying he said what I am saying to you is he is in very very critical condition

     

    3 or 4 days later 3 in the morning we were all sound asleep my phone rang my sister in law said the doctor just called and I called my younger brother to hurry up and come to the hospital that your dad in not going to survive this night by the time I got there he was already gone my older brother who lived much closer was there and he says this Ravi I was holding onto dads hand as he was hooked up to the machines and his blood pressure was so low he said when I called him by his name for a moment it shot up I don't know whether he registered it or not...

    Throughout Scripture, it is evident that God honors faith. Our wholehearted belief in the Lord is important because when we truly place our trust in Him, the Savior is glorified. Our Father wants us always to have confidence that He will fulfill His promises.
