INTRODUCTION

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SAVED?
SALVATION IS THE VICTORY OF OUR GOD OVER SIN
TRULY, THE SCRIPTURES SHOW THAT GOD IS EAGER TO SAVE, REDEEM, MEET US IN HIS NEED
JUST AS HUMANS ARE THE ONE’S WHO IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF THIS GOD
THUS IT IS THE VICTORY OF OUR GOD
VICTORY OVER SIN, VICTORY OVER DEATH, VICTORY OVER THE OPPRESSION OF THE DEVIL
JUST AS HE SHOWS IN HIS PARABLE OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN
EXAMPLE OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN
THE DEVIL COMES TO KILL, STEAL AND DESTRY BUT CHRIST HAS COME THAT WE MIGHT HAVE OVERFLOWING LIFE
GOD’S TRIUMPH HAS PUT AWAY THE TRAGEDY THAT THE WICKED ONE CAUSES
ALL OF CREATION IS COMMANDED TO REJOICE FOR JOY T THE PRESENCE OF GOD
ON CHRISTMAS DAY, WE CELEBRATE IN THE HUMBLE BIRTH OF JESUS
CHRIST IS: OUR ADVOCATE, THE ALMIGHTY,THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, THE ANGEL OF HIS PRESENCE, THE BEGINNING AND THE ENDING, THE CAPTAIN OF OUR SALVATION, THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE, EMMANUEL-GOD WITH US, FAITHFUL AND TRUE
FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS
FRIENDS OF SINNERS
THE GOOD SHEPHERD
THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL
THE I AM
THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD
THE LAMB WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD
THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
THE LORD OF HOSTS
THE ROSE OF SHARON
THE LILY OF THE VALLEY
THE POTTER
THE PRINCE OF PEACE
WONDERFUL
COUNSELLOR
ALMIGHTY GOD
THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH
HE IS THE KING OF KING AND THE LORD OF LORD
THIS GOD IS THE LIVING GOD OVER ALL OF THE EARTH
HE IS THE WAY, TRUTH, AND LIFE-NOBODY GETS TO THE FATHER BUT BY HIM
DENY HIM AND HE WILL DENY YOU
ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE WILL ACKNOWLEDGE YOU
HIS COMING WAS TO DIE SO THAT HE COULD SAVE THE SINS OF HIS PEOPLE
THERE IS NO SIN TOO BIG OR TOO GREAT THAT HE CANNOT SAVE
HOWEVER, HE SAID, WHO HAS BEEN FORGIVEN MUCH SHALL LOVE MUCH
HE LOVED YOU SO MUCH THAT HE ROSE FROM HIS THRONE IN HEAVEN, TOOK ON BODILY FLESH AND HUMBLED HIMSELF AS A SERVANT
HE TOLD HIS DISCIPLES
Mark 10:45 KJV 1900
For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
THIS IS WHAT BRINGS ME TO MY FIRST POINT

1. DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LORD

AS A NATION MOST OF INDIA DELIGHTS WHEN THE CRICKET TEAM WIN THE WORLD CUP
BUT WHAT ABOUT DELIGHTING IN HIS ENTRANCE INTO THIS WORLD TO SAVE FROM SIN-YOU ARE ON THE WINNING SIDE
THE PSALMIST DECLARES
Psalm 107:1 KJV 1900
O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: For his mercy endureth for ever.
HE IS SO GOOD TO YOU, EVEN BETTER TO YOU THAN YOU’VE BEEN TO YOURSELF
HE IS ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO PRAISE GOD, SINCE HE HAS MADE SALVATION FOR ALL
WHEN JESUS HEALED THE 10 LEPERS ONLY 9 CAME BACK WITH PRAISE
ONE OUT OF 10 CAME BACK TO THANK GOD
MANY PEOPLE GET THEIR MIRACLE AND THEN THEY GO THEIR OWN WAY
BUT ONE PERSON REALIZED THAT HE MUST GO BACK TO THANK THE ONE WHO HEALED HIM
SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO LEAVE PEOPLE BEHIND IF YOU ARE GOING TO THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE IN YOUR LIFE
JESUS ASKED THE LEPER, WEREN’T THERE 10 OF YOU AND ONLY ONE COMES BACK
IT’S TRUE THAT VERY FEW COME BACK TO PRAISE HIM
EVEN WHEN JESUS WAS BORN, THE SHEPHERDS RECEIVED A MESSAGE ABOUT THE BIRTH OF CHRIST AND WHEN THEY HEARD
Luke 2:23 KJV 1900
(As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
LUKE 2:23
WHEN THE LEPERS CAME BACK THE ONE THAT PRAISED HIM RECEIVED SOMETHING THAT THE OTHERS DIDN’T, ALL OF THE RECEIVED HEALING
HOWEVER, HE RECEIVED HEALING AND WHOLENESS
EVERY EMPTY PLACE IN HIS LIFE WAS FILLED UP AND HE WAS MADE COMPLETE
HAVE YOU EVER HAD GOD’S GOODNESS PASSOVER YOU
YOU WERE FRUSTRATED BUT ALL OF A SUDDEN GOD’S GOODNESS PASSED OVER YOU
YOU WERE WORRIED ALL NIGHT, COULDN’T SLEEP, BUT GOD’S GOODNESS PASSED OVER YOU AND YOU KNEW EVERYTHING WOULD BE OK
THE PSALMIST SAYS, YOUR MERCY ENDURETH FOREVER
HOWEVER, THIS KIND OF MERCY ISN’T THE NORMAL MERCY\THIS IS A MERCY THAT IS COMMITTED TO YOU
CAN YOU IMAGINE ALMIGHTY GOD COMMITTED TO YOU
IT IS THE HEBREW WORD HESED-what is beyond desired OR DESERVED
SOME SAY, HESED, IS DEFINED AS THE RELATIONSHIP OF RELATIVES
WHEN HIS COVENANT PEOPLE ARE HELPLESS TO SAVE THEMSELVES, GOD TAKE UP THE INITIATIVE BY DEMONSTRATING LOVE, KINDNESS, AND SALVATION
THIS IS HESED-IT HOLDS ONTO YOU NO MATTER WHAT
THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN REDEEMED ARE TO TESTIFY AND LET OTHERS KNOW
THEY WERE REDEEMED FROM THE HARDSHIP AND SLAVERY OF PHARAOH
THEY WERE REDEEMED FROM THE BABYLONIANS AND THIS IS TO BE EXPRESSED
NOW THEY WERE ABOUT READY TO BE REDEEMED FROM THEIR GREATEST ENEMY-SIN
\IF THE WORST HAS HAPPENED TO US, AND BY GOD’S GRACE WE HAVE LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT, THEN DO SO
REVELATION TALKS ABOUT THE SAINTS AND SAYS, THEY OVERCAME THE EVIL ONE BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY
IF GOD HAS DELIVERED YOU FROM A DIFFICULT SITUATION, NOW IS THE TIME TO GET UP AND GIVE HIM A HAND OF PRAISE
BECAUSE IF HE DID IT BEFORE, HE CAN DO IT AGAIN-JESUS CHRIST, THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER
MY SECOND POINT BEARS A PROBLEM

2. DESTROYED

THE PSALMIST IS BASICALLY TELLING US THAT THEY HAVE BEEN DESTROYED
FIRST, HE CLLS THEM FOOLS DUE TO THEIR BAD JUDGEMENT
HE HAS A LACK OF DISCIPLINE AND HAS NO CONVICTION OF HIS SINS
HE HAS FORGOTTEN THE GOODNESS OF GOD AND LIVES WITHOUT RESTRAINT
FOOLS BECAUSE HE HAS NEGLECTED THAT SIN AND INIQUITY HAS CONSEQUENCES
FOOLISH BECAUSE HE THINKS THAT HE WILL STILL LIVE RIGHT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD CARRYING ON WITH HIS BEHAVIOR
FOOLISH BECAUSE HE THINKS THAT HIS AFFLICTION IS AN ATTACK OF THE ENEMY WHEN HE HAS BROUGHT IT UPON HIMSELF
WE HAVE A FINE LINE HERE, THERE ARE THOSE WHO THE DEVIL ATTACKS BECAUSE THEY ARE FULFILLING THE PURPOSE OF GOD IN THEIR LIVES
AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING DUE TO THEIR OWN FOOLISH ACTIONS
THESE ARE THE ONE’S THAT ARE AFFLICTED DUE TO THEIR NEGLECT OF SIN
THEY FAIL TO CHANGE AND DEAL WITH IT
THEY LIVE AS IF GOD IS STILL GOING TO BLESS THEM IN THEIR POLLUTED LIFESTYLES
GOD DOES NOT SEND ILLNESS OR TRAGEDY TO PUNISH
HOWEVER, SINFULNESS AFFECTS THE HUMAN BODY
ABUSE
OVERWORK
STRESS
DESPAIR
BAD RELATIONSHIP
DEPRESSION
UNEXPRESSED GRIEF
GUILT OR SHAME
REJECTION AND ISOLATION
LOW SELF-ESTEEM
ADDICTIONS
ALL OF THESE MAY COME FROM HUMAN SELFISHNESS
SIN IS SEPARATION FROM GOD, EVEN MISSING THE MARK
I FEEL AFFLICTED WHEN I’M SEPARATED FOR SOME REASON FROM GOD
THEY ARE UNGRATEFUL TO GOD FOR ANYTHING
LOOK AT HOW FAST THAT ISRAEL, BEING FREED FROM 400 YEARS OF SLAVERY, QUICKLY CEASED TO TRUST IN GOD’S PROVISION AND COMPLAINED AGAINST GOD
Numbers 21:4–9 KJV 1900
And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.
NUMBERS
AGAIN AND AGAIN MAN CALLED OUT IN THEIR DISTRESS AND IN THEIR TROUBLE AND AGAIN AND AGAIN, GOD RESCUES THEM
TODAY, WHOSEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE DELIVERED
GOD EVEN SAYS, CALL TO ME AND I WILL ANSWER YOU WITH GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS WHICH I DID NOT KNOW
HE HAS NOT CHANGED
WE CHANGE, BUT HE NEVER CHANGES
EVEN IN OUR TEXT, THE PEOPLE ARE IN TROUBLE AND CRIED TO GOD AND GOD ANSWERED THEIR PRAYER
GOD CAN ANSWER YOUR PRAYER TODAY
YOU MAY BE IN SOME KIND OF TROUBLE, SOME KIND OF DISTRESS, BUT NOTHING IS TOO DIFFICULT FOR GOD.
WHICH BRINGS ME TO POINT 3.

3. DELIVERANCE

THE SAME GOD THAT TOOK A NATION OF SLAVES AND MOVED THEM OUT OF THE MOST POWERFUL NATION IN THE WORLD CAN STILL SAVE
THE SAME GOD WHO GVE GIDEON AND DAVID VICTORY CAN STILL SAVE
THE GOD WHO BROUGHT ISRAEL BACK FROM BABYLONIAN BONDAGE CAN STILL SAVE
IF YOU ARE BOUND TO SOMETHING RIGHT NOW IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO BE FREE
YOU MAY FEEL LIKE YOU ARE SO FAR AWAY FROM YOUR PROMISES THAT NOTHING CAN GET THEM BACK
UT THE GIFTS AND CALLINGS OF GOD ARE WITHOUT REPENTANCE
THAT MEANS THAT HE DOES NOT TAKE YOUR GIFT AND GIVE IT AWAY
YOU MAY BE BOUND BY A RELATIONSHIP, A FRIENDSHIP, A JOB BUT GOD CAN SET YOU FREE TODAY
WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS THERE IS LIBERTY
AND WE ARE CELEBRATING WHEN THE WORD ENTERED THIS WORLD
THE BIBLE SAYS, HE SENT HIS WORD AND HEALED THEM ABD DELIVERED THEM FROM ALL THEIR DESTRUCTIONS
GOD IS ABLE TO DELIVER YOU FROM ANYTHING TODAY
AN UNGODLY BEHAVIOR, AN ADDICTION, A BAD RELATIONSHIP, POVERTY, LACK, FROM PRIDE WE ARE CELEBRATING THE ENTRANCE OF THE WORD INTO THE WORLD TODAY
THE BIBLE CALLS JESUS CHRIST, THE WORD, AND IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD.
JOHN SAID, AND THE WORD DWELT AMONG US AND WE BEHELD HIS GLORY, THE GLORY AS OF ONLY THE BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH
HIS WORD IS HERE TODAY TO SET YOU FREE, FREE FROM YOUR OWN WAYS, FREE FROM YOUR SINS
THIS WORD IS FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH
HE IS HERE TO HEAL YOU TODAY
HEAL YOUR BROKEN HEART, FAMILY, BUSINESS, YOUR MINISTRY
HE IS HERE TO HEAL YOUR FAITH, FIGHT, WORSHIP, PRAYER, AND PRAISE
HE IS HERE TO HEAL YOUR PERSPECTIVE OF LIFE, THE DREAMS YOU THOUGHT THAT YOU LOST, THE VISION THAT APPEARS SO DIFFERENT
HE IS HERE TO DELIVER FROM EMOTIONAL TIES, FROM PHYSICAL TIES, FROM THE STORM THAT IS TOO STRONG
WHATEVER IS TRYING TO DESTROY YOUR LIFE TODAY, HE IS THE WORD THAT WILL DELIVER YOU FROM ALL OF YOUR DESTRUCTIONS
WHATEVER IS TRYING TO DESTROY YOU, HE WILL HEAL YOU
YOU WERE NOT DESTINED FROM DESTRUCTION, YOU WERE DESTINED FOR HIS LOVE AND NOTHING CAN SEPARATE YOU FROM THE LOVE OF GOD
DESTRUCTION MAY BE IN VIEW BUT
Luke 21:28 KJV 1900
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
ALL THAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE AND RECEIVE
YOU CAN WALK OUT OF HERE TODAY WITH A SINFUL HEART OR YOU CAN WALK OUT OF HERE TODAY WITH A HEALED HEART
