God’s servants selected for a season and a reason to complete a job. They needed to continue through various trials and persecution for the sake of the brethren. Examples of servants and their works and personal attacks.
A minister is aware of the commission and is not afraid to do it. They are men of integrity. Their message is in harmony with previous apostle and building upon it. They have a total disregard of whether the message is accepted or not. The commission was authenticated by signs and wonders.

Tyre, famous port city of Phoenicians that was fortified. Prophecy for Tyre to be destroyed and plundered. Alexander the Great and others who destroyed. Trading system in this area. Discussion of modern day Tyre and future prophecy for Jesus Christ to destroy it upon His return.

Paul wrestled with sin 25 years after baptism. Noah had to deal with evil continually. Lot had to deal with people of Sodom and Gomorrah. Don’t treat sin lightly. David took personal responsibility. We need to undertand ourselves. Discover the problems to rid and talents to use. Overcome hatred with love. Hatred stirs up strife. Love covers all sins. Deal with each sin specificaly and individually.

We can discern the blind spots with God’s spirit. Jesus came to replace and qualified at that time. He is our intercessor now and is ready to take control as King of Kings. We need the Holy Spirit to correct, repent and change direction. Stop sin in the mind. Lucifer’s sin was conceived in the mind. Keep our mind on things above no on earthly things.

Incentive – desire to come out of sin. Initiative – action requires direction. Inspiration – hope, courage. Search for spiritual leavening and use the tools with the right attitude. Points:
Never doubt God. Don’t be complainers. Search hearts daily not annually. Have humility. Respect Jesus Christ’s sacrifice. Sincerity and truth. Love your brother.

Blessed is the man who trusts in God and doesn’t put trust in man. God doesn’t lie and therefore is trustworthy. God doesn’t forsake those who seek Him. Don’t worry or be anxious about anything but rely on God’s promises. Cast your cares upon Him for He cares for you. God will strengthen your heart.

Be transformed. Prove by examining selves. Our lifestyle will reflect faith. Lead a life worthy of the Lord. God has qualified us to be partakers of His inheritance by trials. Bear fruits worthy of repentance. Overcome SELF, SATAN, SOCIETY. God give us the victory through Jesus Christ. Lose our life for God’s sake and find it. Be alert, pray always to be counted worthy.

The difference between goats and sheep. Cantankerous old goat compared to a gentle sheep that stays silent while being shorn. Sheep keep giving wool all of their life. Jesus Christ is the lamb of God and He knows His sheep as a good shepherd.

Patience is needed for endurance. Have faith and patience. Beware, don’t let your heart be weighed down. Identify where the body of Jesus Christ is – there also will be vultures. More evidence is the love they will have for one another. Satan will bring persecution from within and out. Be involved in work of God. Don’t be discouraged and follow Jesus Christ.
Edwin Pope | February 23, 2002
Jesus Christ is there to plead our case. Our advocate. He knows it because He has lived it. God will give us faith if we ask without doubting. Don’t be disconnected from the power source. Persistence. Ask according to His will, ask in faith – never wavering. If you don’t know His will – ask. Be immoveable and steadfast. Prayer unselfishly for others.
Norbert Link | February 16, 2002
God leads us to repentance through His goodness. It is a gift that cannot happen without Him. Don’t be envious of evil doers or desire to be with them. They will be cut down. Wait on the Lord and cast your burden on Him who sustains. Biblical examples: Noah, Abraham, Issac, David – they all were “full of days”. Look at trials as an opportunity to be more perfect. They are evidence that we are counted worthy.

If you put your hand to the plough don’t turn back. The Egyptians complained and looked back after the exodus. Lot’s wife looked back. What would attract me back? Many participate but how many stay and are committed?

We are going to get new clothes. All things are naked and exposed to God. His wife is making herself ready – arrayed in fine linen. Are we living examples – would people want to emulate me? Be prepared to withstand – stay close to God. Are we deceiving ourselves? Don’t measure ourselves amongst ourselves. Be purified and made white, refined in the fire. Everyday life is the wedding rehearsal.
Norbert Link | January 26, 2002
Nothing is covered that will not be revealed. Some sins are evident and some will be revealed later. All secrets come to light. Everything whispered will be heard aloud. Jesus was a light in this dark world. We must look at ourselves. There is no hiding from God. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch over evil and good.
Edwin Pope | January 5, 2002
We live in a world that has a great deal of intolerance and hatred, and iniquity certainly abounds as Christ said it would. Given this, we need to recognize the emotional pitfalls that can bring us to the breaking point, pitfalls such as: having hurt feelings, being offended, being competitive, feeling jealous, having envy, and being judgmental toward others. How can we avoid these pitfalls? By acquiring the Godly trait of mercy. Learn how in this important message.
