159 - Are You Rejecting God’s Word?
This message provides insights found in the Apostle John's account of the "Triumphal Entry," as told in John 12:9-19. John related that the people had come to see Jesus and Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead. The people believed in Jesus and were acting on those beliefs by praising Him and preparing the road, making it easier for Him to get to the Temple, where He was going. The Pharisees were plotting to kill Jesus and Lazarus both, but they realize they cannot because, ". . . the world has gone after Him." If that were only true today. These people had seen the miracles and signs Jesus did, and it made them believe in Him. We are called to believe though we have not seen. There are only two types of people; those who accept the Word of God and those who reject it. Those who believe in Jesus Christ and those who reject Him. The people in John's Gospel followed Jesus because they knew they needed what Jesus was offering -- healing, blessings and eternal life. Their faith caused them to act in praise and worship. They even physically cut down tree branches to make the way for Jesus. They were running after God's Word -- Jesus. Are you running after God's Word? If you have faith in God's Word, you act on that faith. As James says, faith without works is dead. All things are possible for those who believe. How much do you believe in the Word of God? How much do you study His Word? How much is the Word of God active in you? There are four things we must do to appropriate the blessings of God. This message spells those things out.
