    Of course, we all think THE MORE we surrender to Jesus – the more we lose.
    But Jesus says the MORE you surrender – the more blessings you will gain now, PLUS BONUS – eternal life later. John Wesley’s point was that while justification by faith – may be all of God’s grace, sanctification is not just a passive, sit back and wait process. As Jesus calls us into his Kingdom and speaks to us through His word – we need to exercise our new liberated will – in intentional choices to repent and surrender more and more of our life to Jesus. Shooting sacred cows and repenting of certain sins is never easy and sometimes we put it off indefinitely. But what blessings are we forfeiting by not giving up the things Jesus is calling us to give up?

    Now this is hard for Christians to navigate – because the Bible does have a special concern for orphans, widows, refugees and the poor. And in many circumstances (but not all circumstances) – orphans, widows, refugees and the poor are victims of injustice. That’s the reality in our fallen world and Christians are called to be concerned about justice. But the Bibles answer to addressing the injustices of the world is quite different to modern secular man’s answer. The Bible also identifies the real oppressor – Satan in a way that modern secular man does not acknowledge. Secularism simply paints a picture that some people are good and some people are bad…

    So who is the oppressor and who is the victim in the Israel-Palestine conflict? In the first week of the conflict – just about everyone was on Israel’s side – because Israel was the obvious victim of a terrorist incident. But then as Israel have responded (and civilian casualties rise in Gaza) – more and more people are identifying the Palestinians as the victims we must now protect. Against this backdrop of increasing hostility on the world stage (and with Israel at the centre) – I want to share with you a prophecy from Zechariah 14 about the day of the Lord (Slide 3).. But can Christians, Israel, Palestine, widows or any of us – really expect justice prior to Jesus’ return?

    So Jude finishes this section with the quote from 1 Enoch 1:9 – reminding us that God’s judgement for such people is coming.
    God alone is the Creator and going against His will DOES NOT produce fruit, it ONLY and ALWAYS reaps judgment. So be careful of man’s deception and angelic deception that leads you to indulge your desires. If Enoch is true – the angels in Noah’s day gave the people knowledge to chase after their fleshly desires – through the arts of war, witchcraft, alchemy; beauty and even health and medicine. But the knowledge and ability to pursue these desires – all still came to naught and simply brought God’s judgment.

    In such an age, where even non-Christians admit truth has been thrown to the ground we need to get back to just relying on the basic, simple and literal understanding of the Bible, that the Holy Spirit gives us – as we pray and read God’s Word in our quiet places. We don’t need experts. We don’t need big name pastors giving us the next date for Jesus’ return because they cracked the code. What we need is faith expressing itself in 1) holiness, 2) godliness and 3) spotless living as we are guided by the Holy Spirit in simple, prayerful meditation on the meaning of God’s Word. So, get a healthy cynicism. Question everything. And be wary of high falutin, clever and tickle our ears argument designed to keep us friends with the world and avoid the cost of being faithful to Jesus. But do not worry. Do not be afraid. Jesus warned us that all these things would happen and hopefully soon, but just at the right time – our Yeshua will appear, our enemies will be vanquished AND we will cross the Jordan and enter into our promised land – our forever home of righteousness Let me pray…
