What will Set Us Apart is Hustle & Heart - Pastor Rudy

February 4, 2019

 HUSTLE & HEART,  WILL SET APART 

CHAMPIONS LEAVE IT ON THE FIELLD!

Romans 8:36-38 Common English Bible (CEB)

37 But in all these things we win a sweeping victory through the one who loved us. 

INTRO: WATCHING SPORTS -  I don’t know how many times I’ve been watching sports with the love of my life Annette; whether it’s was baseball or football  and the game was supposed to be exciting with the anticipation of who’s going to win and I don’t know how many times I’ve heard Annette say "they don’t want it, they’re not hungry, what are they doing get in the game!" why because she felt they were putting their Heart & Soul into it, they were play their best!

What will set the greats apart from the rest? The champions will pul there all and  leave it on the field, weather it’s in the boxing ring or on the field.

Today we also have a mandate to give it all to God, to Live and Serve Him, His Purpose, His Mission and to do it with all our heart, strength and mind. 

Today what sets us apart as more than conquerors in Christ is that we put our heart and soul into it, that what sets us apart from the rest!

Scriptures on sports to win:

1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NLT - “Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.”

1 Corinthians 9:24-27 MSG “You’ve all been to the stadium and seen the athletes race. Everyone runs; one wins. Run to win. All good athletes train hard. They do it for a gold medal that tarnishes and fades. You’re after one that’s gold eternally.  26,27 - I don’t know about you, but I’m running hard for the finish line. I’m giving it everything I’ve got. No sloppy living for me! I’m staying alert and in top condition. I’m not going to get caught napping, telling everyone else all about it and then missing out myself.”

 

Scripture on Discipline for the sports:

1 Timothy 4:7-10 CSB. “But have nothing to do with pointless and silly myths. Rather, train yourself in godliness. For the training of the body has limited benefit, but godliness is beneficial in every way, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance. For this reason we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.”

“When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, they all went in search of David; when David heard of this, he went out to face them. Now the Philistines had come and raided in the Valley of Rephaim, so David inquired of God, “Should I attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?” The Lord replied, “Attack, and I will hand them over to you.” So the Israelites went up to Baal-perazim, and David defeated the Philistines there. Then David said, “Like a bursting flood, God has used me to burst out against my enemies.” Therefore, they named that place The Lord Bursts Out.”

1 Chronicles 14:8-11 CSB

The Power of Forgetting - Pastor Rudy

January 14, 2019

Song (This Means War)- Juan Rios & Nellie Avila 

Fresh Start - The Power of Forgetting - message by Pastor Rudy

Philippines 3:13 - Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, (SEE SCRIPTURE)

 

1. PAUL DECLARATION THIS ONE THING I DO - FORGETTING

Word Study -  ONE THING - 1. The Understanding of Uniqueness in the NT.

Only rarely is ες used as a digit in the NT (e.g., 2 Pt. 3:8). It usually means “single,” “once-for-all,” “unique” or “only,”  Stauffer, E. (1964–). εἷς. G. Kittel, G. W. Bromiley, & G. Friedrich (Eds.), Theological dictionary of the New Testament (electronic ed., Vol. 2, p. 434). Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans.

 

FORGETTING - 1950 πιλανθάνομαι [epilanthanomai /ep·ee·lan·than·om·ahee/] v. Middle voice from 1909 and 2990; GK 2140; Eight occurrences; AV translates as “forget” seven times, and “be forgetful” once. 

1 to forget. 2 neglecting, no longer caring for. 2 forgotten, given over to oblivion, i.e. uncared for.

 Strong, J. (1995). Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon. Woodside Bible Fellowship.

Middle voice is an approximate type of grammatical voice in which the subject both performs and receives the action expressed by the verb. In other words, the subject acts as both the agent and the receiver (i.e., the direct object) of the action.

  • 1909 and 2990; to lose out of mind; by impl. to neglect:—(be) forget (-ful of).  forget; neglect; overlook

1909.  ἐπί ĕpi, ep-ee´; a prim. prep. prop. mean. superimposition (of time, place, order, etc.)  Meaning to place over or above something.    

  • 2990 - “be hid” unaware (not impacted in the negative, but rather for the postive) 
  • GK 2140 - ignore, overlook, be unmindful, i.e., not remember information and so lose sight of it significance, implying no proper response or an improper response in some contexts שָׁכַח (šā·ḵǎḥ) 8894 Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains : Hebrew (Old Testament)

 

2. PAUL’S PAST - THREATS & MURDER  Acts - (SEE SCRIPTURE) Acts 7:54-60, Acts 8:1-3, Acts 9:1-31

 

3. PAUL’S PRIZE  - TRANSFORMING FORGETTING POWER!

1 Timothy 1:12-17 CSB  “I give thanks to Christ Jesus our Lord who has strengthened me, because he considered me faithful, appointing me to the ministry — even though I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an arrogant man. But I received mercy because I acted out of ignorance in unbelief, and the grace of our Lord overflowed, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” — and I am the worst of them. But I received mercy for this reason, so that in me, the worst of them, Christ Jesus might demonstrate his extraordinary patience as an example to those who would believe in him for eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.”   

 

KEY WORDS THAT SUPERIMPOSED HIS PASS

Strength, Faithfulness, Mercy, Grace, Faith & Love in Christ Jesus - Extraordinary Patience of the Lord! 

(THIS KEPT HIM REACHING FORWARD TO THE PRIZE IN CHRIST JESUS)

Fresh Start - Moving Pass Our Pass - Pastor Rudy

January 7, 2019

FRESH START - MOVING PASS OUR PAST 01/06/18 part 2

We Must Be Able to Move Pass our Pass!

Scripture Reading:

Genesis 41:51-52 KJV. “And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house. And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.”

 

FORGETTING WHAT IS BEHIND US

KEY  PHRASES:

1. Remember ye not the former things

2. Former have pasted don't be stuck in the past

3. The Fresh & New will come as we move forward and not hold on to the past

“ Forgetting means you are able to move past the past and move forward for what God has planned for your life, nothing greater than living for God and living the plan he has for your life and to not be entangled or trapped by the past! ”

* Manasseh - Jospeh The Lord has caused me to forget   

A Classic Case In Moving Past the Past

Genesis 41:51-52 KJV. “And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house. And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.”

THE PAST

  1. Jealousy and Betrayal Joseph was Sold as a Slave
  2. Joseph was wrongly accused of sexual misconduct and did prison time behind it. 
  3. Joseph was forgotten in prison after doing good (some guys come out with a great attitude and some don't)

Genesis 50:15-19 KJV. “And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying, So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?”

Genesis 50:18-21 KJV “And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

JOSEPH COULD HAVE:

  1. He could have gotten side tracked by lust and sin with temptation 
  2. He could have allowed himself to be poisoned by bitterness resentment and hate 
  3. He could have gotten caught up while in prison because of what was done to him

JOSEPH'S POWERFUL ATTITUDE: 

  1. HE SERVED WITH A GREAT SPIRIT IN SPITE OF ILL TREATMENT 
  2. HE POSSESSED A GREAT SPIRIT OF FORGIVENESS AND DIDN’T ALLOW HATERS AND JEALOUSY TO GET TO HIM 
  3. HE WALKED IN GODS WILL FOR HIS LIFE IN SPITE OF - what you meant for evil God meant for good.

WHAT WE LEARN IS GOD is able to keep you and God mends, heals and restores from hurt, pain and betrayal and that you can move pass your pass the past by the grace of God! 

GIVE IT TO GOD, let it go and don’t allow yourself to continue in victim mode.  We will get past our past in Jesus name.

A Fresh Start for A New Year - Pastor Rudy

December 31, 2018

A NEW BEGINNING, A NEW YEAR!

A New Year marks a time when people everywhere celebrate the possibility of building a better tomorrow. It symbolizes the human desire to demarcate (set the boundaries, distinguish, separate) the past from the future, the old from the new.  

There is a deep human desire to be able to start again, not to be imprisoned by the past. We need to feel hope for new possibilities and see that our future is not governed entirely by our history. 

 

SCRIPTURE READING:

Isaiah 43:18-19 King James Version (KJV) 18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, And new things do I declare:  Before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Ezekiel 11:19 KJV “And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:”

Ezekiel 36:26 KJV A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”

Lamentations 3:22-23 KJV  “It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”

 

Thoughts for A Fresh Start for A New Year:

1. God will do a New Thing in your Life, He's a God of Newness 

2. Don't allow the former, the past to hold you down in life and imprison you to the past

3. Speak what God puts in your heart, speaking and agreeing with God has power to bring you into the newness of God

4. The Mercies of the Lord are New Every Morning

5. Daily Discipline to SEEK HIM DAILY, Everyday Look to Him
