SERMON TEXT: REVELATION 22:12-17, 20 [AMEN! COME LORD JESUS!]

LET US RISE FOR THE READING OF THIS MORNING'S SERMON TEXT RECORDED FOR US IN JOHN'S REVELATION WHERE WE READ FROM CHAPTER 22 BEGINNING WITH VERSE 12:

"BEHOLD, I AM COMING SOON! MY REWARD IS WITH ME, AND I WILL GIVE TO EVERYONE ACCORDING TO WHAT HE HAS DONE. I AM THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA, THE FIRST AND THE LAST, THE BEGINNING AND THE END. "BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO WASH THEIR ROBES, THAT THEY MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE AND MAY GO THROUGH THE GATES INTO THE CITY. OUTSIDE ARE THE DOGS, THOSE WHO PRACTICE MAGIC ARTS, THE SEXUALLY IMMORAL, THE MURDERERS, THE IDOLATERS AND EVERYONE WHO LOVES AND PRACTICES FALSEHOOD. "I, JESUS, HAVE SENT MY ANGEL TO GIVE YOU THIS TESTIMONY FOR THE CHURCHES. I AM THE ROOT AND THE OFFSPRING OF DAVID, AND THE BRIGHT MORNING STAR." THE SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE SAY, "COME!" AND LET HIM WHO HEARS SAY, "COME!" WHOEVER IS THIRSTY, LET HIM COME; AND WHOEVER WISHES, LET HIM TAKE THE FREE GIFT OF THE WATER OF LIFE. HE WHO TESTIFIES TO THESE THINGS SAYS, "YES, I AM COMING SOON." AMEN. COME, LORD JESUS.

THIS IS THE WORD OF OUR LORD. LET US PRAY: GLORIOUS AND GRACIOUS GOD, MAY THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH AND THE MEDITATION OF EACH OF OUR HEARTS BE ACCEPTABLE IN YOUR SIGHT, OUR ONLY SOURCE OF HOPE AND COMFORT. AMEN.

DEAR FOLLOWERS OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST: IT SEEMS SO OFTEN THAT WHEN PEOPLE PORE OVER THE BOOK OF REVELATION, THEY ARE GOING THROUGH THAT WITH SUCH A FINE-TOOTH COMB. TO GLEAN OUT ANYTHING THEY CAN ABOUT WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE. WHAT IS GOD GOING TO DO IN THE FUTURE? WHEN IS THAT LAST DAY GOING TO COME? WHEN IS THIS WORLD GOING TO END? THEY GET THEIR MINDS SO FOCUSED ON THE PROPHECY OF IT ALL. THAT THEY SOMETIMES FORGET TO SEE THE BEAUTIFUL PICTURES OF THE PAST THAT THE BOOK OF REVELATION PUTS BEFORE US. OR AT LEAST PICTURES THAT MAKE US UNDERSTAND AND REALIZE HOW BEAUTIFUL IT WILL BE ON THAT DAY WHEN CHRIST RETURNS TO END THIS WORLD AND TO TAKE HIS SAINTS IN GLORY TO THEIR HEAVENLY HOME ... ... HEAVENLY REALM. WE'RE SO REMINDED OF THAT OLD TESTAMENT AGAIN TODAY CONCERNING THE TREE OF LIFE. THE TREE OF LIFE THAT GOD PLANTED IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN. AMONG OTHER PLANTS THAT WERE GRAND AND GLORIOUS AS WELL. THAT PLACE THAT HE HAD PREPARED FOR THE HIGHLIGHT OF HIS CREATION ... FOR HUMANITY. THAT GARDEN IN WHICH HE PLACED ADAM AND EVE AND HE TOLD THEM TO TEND IT. AND TO TAKE CARE OF IT. AND GAVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW THEIR OBEDIENCE BY SAYING: YOU CAN EAT OF ANY OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREES OF THIS GARDEN BUT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, YOU CANNOT EAT. AND WE DON'T KNOW HOW LONG ADAM AND EVE OBEYED THAT COMMAND OF GOD. AND TRULY WORSHIPED HIM AS THEY TENDED AND CARED FOR THAT GARDEN AND LOOKED AT THAT TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, AND THOUGHT: WE WILL NOT EAT OF THAT IN OBEDIENCE TO GOD'S COMMAND. BUT YET THEN, SATAN COMES INTO THE PICTURE. TO TEMPT THEM. TO GET THEM TO DOUBT. TO GET THEM NOT TO LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF GOD. NOT TO SEE GOD'S LOVE AND GOD'S ABIDING ALL AROUND THEM AND ALL OF THE BLESSINGS THAT GOD HAS PROVIDED THEM WITH. BUT SATAN HAS THIS WAY OF TWISTING AND TURNING EVERYTHING TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE SOMEHOW THAT WAS WRONG OF GOD TO SAY THEY COULDN'T EAT OF THAT ONE TREE. HE MUST NOT WANTED THEM TO DO IT BECAUSE BECAUSE THERE'S TRULY SOMETHING SPECIAL THERE. AND SATAN COMES AND SAYS: WHEN YOU EAT THAT, YOU'RE GOING TO BE LIKE GOD. YOU'RE GOING TO KNOW GOOD AND EVIL. AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, THAT TREE CHANGED IN ITS APPEARANCE. THAT TREE NO LONGER REPRESENTED THEIR OBEDIENCE TO GOD, BUT NOW THAT TREE HAD FRUIT THAT WAS APPEALING TO THEM. FRUIT THAT THEY WANTED AND EVE TOOK THE FRUIT AND ATE IT. AND SHE GAVE SOME TO ADAM WHO DID NOT STOP HER AND HE ALSO ATE IT. AND SIN ENTERED THE WORLD AND IMMEDIATELY ... ADAM AND EVE KNEW WHAT THEY HAD DONE! IMMEDIATELY THAT PERFECTION OF GOD'S WORLD ... ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY WERE EMBARRASSED BY THE CREATION OF THEIR OWN BODIES; THEY KNEW THEY WERE NAKED AND THEY HAD TO COVER THEMSELVES. AND WHEN GOD CAME INTO THE GARDEN, NOW THEY HID. THEY RAN FROM GOD. THEY DIDN'T WANT TO BE WITH GOD. THEY DIDN'T WANT TO BE A PART OF HIM BECAUSE THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT THEY HAD DONE EXACTLY WHAT GOD HAD SAID DON'T DO. AND GOD WAS COMING TO PUNISH THEM. AND HE CALLED THEM OUT. HE SAID YOU COME AND YOU STAND HERE. BECAUSE NOW I AM GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. I KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. AND YOU WILL BE PUNISHED WITH DEATH. I ... WILL SEND A MESSIAH. I WILL SEND SOMEONE FROM THE FRUIT OF YOUR LOINS WHO IS GOING TO SAVE THE WORLD. BUT KNOW THIS: THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH AND YOU WILL DIE! AND IF THAT WERE NOT A HORRIBLE ENOUGH MOMENT, IN THE LIFE OF ADAM AND EVE, HE TOOK THEM AND ESCORTED THEM OUT OF THE GARDEN. THREW THEM OUT OF THAT PLACE THAT HE HAD CREATED AND MADE FOR THEM. SO THAT THEY COULD NOT RETURN TO THE TREE OF LIFE AND EAT FROM IT AND LIVE FOREVER IN THEIR CORRUPTED STATE. AND HE PUT HIS ANGELS AS GUARDS TO THOSE GATES TO KEEP THEM OUT! WHAT A HORRIFIC DAY IT MUST HAVE BEEN IN THE LIFE OF ADAM AND EVE. AND ONE THAT THEY MUST HAVE RELIVED OVER AND OVER AND OVER IN THEIR OWN MINDS ... ABOUT WHAT THEY HAD DONE. AND WHEN THEY LOOKED AT THEIR OWN CHILDREN REALIZING THAT THOSE CHILDREN WERE CREATED IN THEIR OWN FLESH. THEIR OWN SINFUL NATURE. THOSE CHILDREN, TOO, OUTSIDE OF THE GARDEN. NOT ABLE TO GO AND EAT FROM THAT TREE OF LIFE. WHAT A HORRIBLE PICTURE TO BE OUTSIDE OF THAT GARDEN OF GOD'S BOUNTY AND BLESSING. AND THEN WE HEAR THE WORDS OF JOHN'S REVELATION. THAT GOD HAS OPENED UP HIS HEAVEN. AND HE HAS PROVIDED THERE THE TREE OF LIFE. AND HE'S COMING TO CLAIM THOSE WHO TRUST IN HIM. CLAIM THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN HIM ... CLAIM THOSE WHO WERE OUTSIDE WITH THE DOGS. THOSE WHO WERE SEXUALLY IMMORAL. THOSE WHO PROMOTED FALSEHOOD. THOSE WHO PRACTICED MAGICAL ARTS. AND WE REALIZE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT EACH OF US WAS BEFORE COMING TO THE KNOWLEDGE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. AND HOW CRAZY IT IS IN OUR OWN LIFE WHEN WE STILL WANT TO DABBLE IN THOSE THINGS THAT ARE OUTSIDE OF WHAT GOD DESIRES FOR US. AH, TODAY I'M JUST GONNA READ MY HOROSCOPE. SEE WHAT IT HAS TO SAY. DABBLING A LITTLE BIT. IN THE MAGICAL ARTS. PLAYING WITH WHAT SATAN WANTS US TO TAKE THE ATTENTION AWAY FROM GOD. HOW EASY IT IS FOR US TO REALIZE THAT WE CAN TELL COARSE JOKES THAT ARE SEXUALLY OFFENSIVE OR JUST PLAIN DIRTY. IT DOESN'T MATTER. PLAYING WITH THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT. THINKING THAT WE'RE SOMEHOW CLEVER. OR FUNNY. OR THAT WE WANT TO DICKER BETWEEN WHAT IS A WHITE LIE AND WHAT IS A BLACK LIE ... WHEN ALL GOD SAYS IS THAT ALL FALSEHOOD IS SIN. WE REALIZE THAT WE WOULD BE OUTSIDE THE GATES OF HEAVEN IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR THE AMAZING LOVE OF GOD IN SENDING HIS SON. THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA, THE ROOT AND THE OFFSPRING OF JESSE, THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR. ALL OF THOSE TITLES PILED UP ON GOD'S ONE AND ONLY SON. WHO CAME TO SAVE US FROM SIN AND TO OPEN THE GATES OF HEAVEN FOR US. AND HE ALLOWS US TO COME IN AND TO BE SAFE AND TO BE CARED FOR AND TO BE NURTURED. TO BE CUT OFF FROM ALL OF THOSE DOGS AND ALL OF THOSE UNBELIEVERS WHO ARE DOING WHAT GOD HAS NOT DESIRED. AND WE HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE IN PEACE. CHAOS-FREE! IN THE BLESSING OF JESUS CHRIST. EATING FROM THAT TREE OF LIFE. DRINKING THE WATER OF LIFE WITHOUT COST THAT GOD HAS POURED OUT SO ABUNDANTLY. THAT HE JUST KEEPS GIVING AND GIVING AND GIVING TO THE WORLD. AND WHAT A REMINDER IT IS FOR US THAT AS WE HAVE THAT WATER OF LIFE, WE LOOK FOR THIS WORLD THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE THIRSTY. THIRSTING FOR ANSWERS. THIRSTING FOR SECURITY. SO THAT WE CAN COME ALSO WITH THAT WATER OF LIFE AND TEACH THEM ABOUT JESUS CHRIST. TO SHARE WITH THEM THE KNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO PREPARE THEM FOR THEIR LIFE. WE HAVE DONE THAT WITH ANTHONY AND ERIKA AND WE ARE GOING TO COME BACK AS A CONGREGATION DAILY AND STILL SUPPORT THEM IN THEIR STRUGGLE IN THIS LIFE OF EVIL AND CHAOS. AND WE'RE GOING TO SUPPORT THEM WITH GOD'S WORD BY SHARING WITH THEM THE KNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE GAINED. HAVING LIVED IN FAITH. HAVING STUDIED THE WORD IN MORE DEPTH. AND HAVING THAT KNOWLEDGE TO SHARE WITH THEM. WHAT AN IMPORTANT THING IT IS THAT WE TALK ABOUT ON MOTHER'S DAY THE HERITAGE OF THINGS THAT WE RECEIVE. WE ALL HEAR OUR MOTHER'S VOICE IN OUR HEADS WHEN SHE'S NOT WITH US. WE ALL KNOW WHAT SHE WOULD SAY. WE ALL KNOW WHAT SHE WANTS US TO DO. SHE'S TAUGHT US THINGS THAT WERE UNIQUE TO HER ABOUT HER LIFE, AND HER CULTURE AND THE THINGS THAT MADE HER THAT UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL. AND WHEN THEY DEPART FROM THIS WORLD, WE CHERISH THOSE THINGS EVEN MORE. BUT THE GREATEST THING, THAT MOTHERS CAN PASS DOWN TO THEIR CHILDREN IS THEIR HERITAGE IN FAITH TO THE KNOWLDEGE OF WHAT GOD DOES IN HER LIFE EACH AND EVERY DAY. TO PRAY WITH HER CHILDREN. TO STUDY GOD'S WORD WITH HER CHILDREN. TO BE THAT SHINING EXAMPLE OF A SAINT OF JESUS CHRIST. AND IF WE DON'T HAVE CHILDREN, WE STILL SHARE THAT EXAMPLE WITH OTHERS. WE FIND PEOPLE THAT WE CAN MENTOR IN OUR LIVES. WE FIND PEOPLE THAT WE CAN REACH OUT TO AND TEACH IN OUR LIVES. WE CONTINUE TO SHARE THAT KNOWLEDGE OF THE WATER OF LIFE BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE THIRSTY AND DYING OF THIRST BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THAT REFRESHING WATER OF JESUS CHRIST THAT HE POURS OUT SO ABUNDANTLY AS OUR LOVING SAVIOR. THAT'S THE PICTURE THAT GOD PLACED BEFORE US THIS MORNING THROUGH JOHN. THAT PICTURE OF HEAVEN THAT CHRIST IS COMING AND HE IS COMING SOON. AND WHEN WE LOOK AROUND THIS WORLD WE REALIZE THAT THE TIME IS SHORT FOR US TO DO OUR WORK. BUT WE ALSO ARE THANKFUL THAT THE TIME IS SHORT SO THAT WE CAN BE CALLED HOME. SO THAT GOD WILL END THIS CORRUPTED DECAYING CHAOTIC MESS OF THE WORLD AND BRING US TO THE GLORY OF HIS HEAVENLY REALM. AND THAT IS WHY WE CRY OUT WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. WE CRY OUT WITH THE CHURCH AND WE CRY OUT WITH ALL OF OUR FAITH-FILLED LUNGS. AMEN! COME, LORD JESUS! LET US RISE. NOW MAY THE PEACE OF GOD WHICH GOES BEYOND ALL OF OUR UNDERSTANDING KEEP YOUR HEARTS AND YOUR MINDS AND ESPECIALLY YOUR LIVES IN THE ONE TRUE FAITH UNTO LIFE EVERLASTING. AMEN.
