Life Skills – Equipping Young Men for Life and Business

Over the past year I’ve been bringing together the young men in our church once a month to be given wisdom, instruction, direction, and encouragement in the areas of business and family life from some of the wise and experienced men in our church. These men are each experienced in their trade, diligent in their service to our local church, and maintain a well-ordered, Gospel-driven family life. From these meetings, we’ve created a new DVD set titled Life Skills.

These ten video sessions are designed to help young men understand some of the basics necessary for their lives as providers and churchmen. They cover areas of time and money management, and matters of career selections. The teachers in this series are local church members who are experienced in their areas of instruction.

1. Time Management
2. Investing
3. Sales
4. Dominion Over the Internet
5. The Faithful Employee
6. The Unfaithful Employee
7. Personal Finance & Managing Money
8. Managing Your Fear
9. Financial Readiness for Marriage
10. Doing What You’re Best At

You Shall Delight Yourself in the Lord – Isaiah 58

Here is a sermon I delivered in Ridgecrest the Sunday following the Highway of Holiness conference. This message deals with the Sabbath, from the text of Isaiah 58.

For those who have a new heart, the Lord’s Day truly is “a market-day of the soul.” It is designed to serve as a taste of glory divine and of the eternal rest that awaits all of God’s elect. It is a way that God has ordained to increase the delight of His people, to re-fashion the thinking of the church, to revive and set it on a course of justice and righteousness.

I also highly recommend Chapel Library’s recent edition of the Free Grace Broadcaster on, “The Lord’s Day.”

How His Own Arm Brought Salvation

My sermon text last Sunday was Isaiah 59:16-21. In my previous sermon, through verses 1-15, we saw a faithful witness of the heartbreaking, life crushing degradations of sin. Through imagery of many things like snakes and spiders to describe mans fallen condition in rebellion against God, Isaiah now turns to the only solution – a warrior. This warrior is the embodiment of truth – an intercessor to rescue sinners. Truth has fallen in the streets, but God will resurrect truth. We can give thanks for God’s zeal to save. He sends a warrior to destroy the enemy of our souls.

Even the US Constitution Upholds the Sabbath

We have little sensitivity to the historical drift our country has experienced regarding the celebration of the Sabbath. While most are aware of the “ blue laws” which prohibited commerce on the Sabbath in recent history, it may come as a surprise to many that even the U.S. Constitution, Section 7 preserves and upholds Sabbath keeping for the President of the United States,

“If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.”

A Few Notes from Freedom 2015

Kevin Swanson in his first address this morning said, “The American people are kissing the chains that bind them. They like the security of the state.  Then he quoted Benjamin Franklin, “either you will be governed by God or by God you will be governed.”

Kevin defined freedom as release from chains, obligation, slavery He said, Jesus defined true freedom and what stands in the way of it, John 8:34-36, Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. 

Bobby Jindal, who was on the same plane I was on from Atlanta, sitting by himself in coach said, America did not create religious liberty, religious liberty created the United States.”

Ted Cruz, said, “Any President who does not begin his day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander in chief.”  Kevin asked him of his opinion of the legitimacy of Kim Smith refusing to sign marriage licenses said, “I stand unequivocally with Kim Davis.” He said he would repeal every word of Obama care, go to a flat tax and abolish the IRS…

Our Greatest Danger is not the U.S. Supreme Court

Our greatest danger are not the supreme court justices of the United States who hate the laws of God, but the supreme court justices in our hearts that are always negotiating and cajoling us to cause us to set aside the Word of God for the sake of our traditions. These justices are always talking and debating and compromising in our heads. They are very self serving. They serve the flesh and all their counsels lead us astray. But, God has given us His Word to correct them.

To Love the World is to Love What God Hates

“Our God wants us to know Him, to fellowship with Him, and to love Him so that as we live day by day in a lost and dying world, we might be reflecting the God of light as we walk in His light,” said Jeff Pollard.

“To love the world is to love what God hates, to esteem what God loathes, to value what God rejects, to admire what God despises, to exalt what God condemns, to accept what God rejects, to savor what God vomits out, to call good what God calls evil.

“To love the world is to worship the creature instead of the Creator.  The Highway of Holiness, the narrow way, the only way that truly is life and life more abundantly is to worship the God who is light, to walk in the light as He is in the light.

“My dear friends, let us look to Christ by faith and walk in the beauty of holiness. Love not the world.  Love the true and living God in Christ Jesus by the power of His Spirit. Amen!” said Pollard.

Riches of God’s Grace vs. Fool’s Gold of Lust

“Jesus Christ gave Himself for our sins. He did this that He may deliver us from this present evil world, not so that we can set our affections on it,” said Jeff Pollard. 

“He died to deliver us from the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.  It is impossible then to love that world and the God of light.  No man can serve two masters for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to the one and despise the other.

“God decreed from all eternity to save His people from the penalty, the power, the pleasure, and some day – praise the Lord – even the presence of sin.

“He predestinated us to be conformed to the image of His Son, not to the image of movie stars, rock stars, and celebrities of every sort.  Wrong image, wrong model.

“He did not lavish the riches of His grace upon us so that we could clutch the fool’s gold of lust and clutch it to our bosom as if we needed it for life.

“He did not hang the Son of God upon the cross so that we could live like those who hate Him.

“He did not send the Holy Ghost to stir up our affections for sensuality, materialism, self-glorification.  ‘If ye then be risen with Christ,’ writes Paul, ‘seek those things which are above, where Christ sits at the right hand of God.’

“He does not give us new hearts so that we might be fashioned according to our former lusts.

“He does not feed us the bread of life so that we can hunger and thirst for the dead things of this world.

“He does not instruct us from His holy truth so that we might consume and live by the lying philosophies of darkened hearts.

“He does not add us to His holy church so that we can hang out with lost people and adopt their attitudes, their dreams, and their ways. You can have friends that are lost, but you ought to be talking to them about Christ.

“He does not give us His holy worship to be set aside for hunting, fishing, concerts and unnecessary travel.  We are not to take His worship and lay it aside like an empty dress.

“He did not clothe us with Christ’s righteousness so that we can expose our bodies with the immodest and licentious fashions of perverted designers.

“He did not open our eyes so that we can inflame our lusts with pornography or any of the media’s impure images. This is Christ’s blood-bought mind and body and soul; it is His — bought for and paid at Calvary.

“He did not open our ears so that we can listen to the lies of ungodly people.

“Brethren and young people, please hear this. Do we understand? Do we have enough discernment to know that much of the music, the videos, and the films of the world are simply catechisms from hell?  Over and over and over so that you love what they love. 

“He did not illuminate our minds to make them temples of Hollywood or false religions.  God does not reveal His eternal love in Christ Jesus to us so that we might love the world, but that we might know Him, fellowship with Him; know joy inexpressible, full of glory. 

“How is your joy level?  It won’t be true for everybody, but it might be connected to the love of the world. We want real joy, that lasts, that cannot be taken away from us,” said Pollard

Christan Homeschooler Catalogued Satan’s Liturgy ‘To Be Cool’

“Many modern evangelical churches are afraid to be different,” said Jeff Pollard as he hinted about his distaste for churches which are ‘seeker-sensitive’, trying to be like the world to attract the world to come to God.

Pollard has seen that kind of bankrupt thinking poison some Christian homeschoolers who do not embrace the notion that we are to be in the world, but not of the world.

 “I saw a homeschool video here recently where the young man said very cockily, ‘Hey, you think we homeschoolers are weird.  We know all the best bands; we know all the best movies.’  He gave me a wonderful liturgy and list from hell. It was the world writ large. ‘We can be homeschoolers and cool too.’  No you can’t!

“It’s also tragic to me that many seem to have an idolatrous fear of being called a legalist.  So they’ll look at God’s word until they’ve kind of found that way around what it’s saying — get a commentary, hear a popular speaker that’s agreeing with them.  

“If you want to walk with Christ, it’s a walk under the cross. It’s not a popularity contest.  But under that cross, you’ll be walking with the Savior.  And that’s the best company in the world!  Be different in Christ, not because you try to make yourself weird or odd, but because the desire of your heart is to walk on the Highway of Holiness because it brings God glory.

“We must learn to discern the difference between darkness and light.  Commune with the God of light in prayer.  There is no communion, heart communion, transforming communion with the living God without prayer,” said Pollard.

Plastic Flowers vs. God’s Fruit

 “We should love the Father with all of our heart, mind and soul.  It’s ‘inside out’, not ‘outside on’,” explained Jeff Pollard.

“In our neighborhood, we noticed that the bushes in front of the neighbor’s house always had colorful, blooming flowers” – no matter the season.  Their curiosity got the best of them.  “So, one day we drove up in their driveway.  We looked carefully. 

“Someone had tied these plastic flowers on these living bushes. They looked great from the road. Isn’t that the way some of us are?  We put things on from the outside, hoping that people will look at us and be impressed. 

“God wants to develop real fruit — every one of those fruit born of God’s Spirit within us. When God regenerates us by His spirit, he gives us new desires, a new life. We don’t start a new life with external things — wired-on flowers, but an inward heavenly life which works its way out.

“If that is true of you, your life will change, you will begin to love holy things.  As much as you may struggle, as much as you have to die to yourself, you will follow Christ, and you will deny yourself daily.  You know what?  You will be different from the world,” said Pollard.

The Church Need to Preach on Fear of God

Is Your Jesus Configured from Movies & Velvet Paintings?

“Do you have a Jesus put together from a few Jesus movies and velvet paintings?” asked Jeff Pollard.

“He purposed before the foundation of the world to save us by His holy Son.  The Father created all things through His beloved Son for sinners. The Father’s will is for His Son to save every single one that He gave in eternity.

“This God of light poured out all of His anger, His wrath upon His Son on the cross of Calvary.  He did this so that all who believe would have all of their s washed away, removed as far as the East is from the West.

“Dying on Calvary, rising again on the third day, Christ has done everything for our justification, our sanctification, and our glorification if we would believe on the God-man, the risen Son of glory.  The Father did all this so that we may walk in the light.

“Will you love this dazzling, life-transforming God of resplendent glory or this Satanic, God-hating system of the world?” asked Pollard.
