Walking with the Lord is no popularity contest

October 13, 2015 The Glory is not for us it is all for You...Title of the messag: Serving the Lord is no popularity contest As the Holy Spirit invites us into His presence He says to me Apostle Paul's journey... many of us have been there talking about people condeming people that we do not know thinking that it was ok because we had a right to say and do what we wanted to say and do....  This is what it will look like from hind sight when one who has been called by God comes to you and gives witness and or testimony of what God has said that would and could happen... Because God knows our hearts when it comes to the church period He will gladly show us that our position about His church will not be tolerated; so here is the thing you have a discrepancey with an elder of the church and you go and bad mouth the elder and the ministry God see's all and knows all and only by His grace and His mercy can He restore and pick you up and allow you to be able to walk along your journey and continue with the Lord leading and guiding you...  Many people get it all wrong thinking they can talk bad about those in leadership and be seen by God as holy; Satan always uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise... The Conversion of Saul9 But Saul, (A)still (B)breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to (C)the high priest 2 and asked him for letters (D)to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to (E)the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. 3 (F)Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him. 4 And falling to the ground he heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting (G)me?" 5 And he said, "Who are you, Lord?" And he said, "I am Jesus, (H)whom you are persecuting. 6 But (I)rise and enter the city, and you will be told (J)what you are to do." 7 (K)The men who were traveling with him stood speechless, (L)hearing the voice but seeing no one. 8 Saul rose from the ground, and although his eyes were opened, (M)he saw nothing. So they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. 9 And for three days he was without sight, and neither ate nor drank.God takes us each who have been called on a road of Damascus that requires us to trust His voice and trust the leading of His Spirit for our lives and sometimes it seems that this can not be so but in time what we will discover is that God is speaking through us working His way within us as He now dwells fully within me ..  10 Now there was a disciple at Damascus named (N)Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, "Ananias." And he said, (O)"Here I am, Lord." 11 And the Lord said to him, "Rise and go to the street called Straight, and at the house of Judas look for a man (P)of Tarsus named Saul, for behold, he is praying, 12 and he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias come in and (Q)lay his hands on him so that he might regain his sight." 13 But Ananias answered, "Lord, I have heard from many about this man, (R)how much evil he has done to (S)your (T)saints at Jerusalem. 14 And here he has authority from (U)the chief priests to bind all who (V)call on your name." 15 But the Lord said to him, "Go, for (W)he is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name (X)before the Gentiles and (Y)kings and the children of Israel. 16 For (Z)I will show him how much (AA)he must suffer (AB)for the sake of my name." 17 So (AC)Ananias departed and entered the house. And (AD)laying his hands on him he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus who appeared to you on the road by which you came has sent me so that you may regain your sight and (AE)be filled with the Holy Spirit." 18 And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and (AF)he regained his sight. Then (AG)he rose and was baptized; 19 and (AH)taking food, he was strengthened.When you are wandering in darkness waiting for the Lord you begin with sheer anticipation to start hungering and thirsting for His joy and His comfort that you once heart; it takes one to remember that they were called by called long before the trials hit them to realize that all that they are going through is for a greater purpose in serving God...  Saul Proclaims Jesus in SynagoguesFor (AI)some days he was with the disciples at Damascus. 20 And immediately he proclaimed Jesus in the synagogues, saying, (AJ)"He is the Son of God." 21 And all who heard him were amazed and said, "Is not this the man who (AK)made havoc (AL)in Jerusalem of those who called upon this name? And has he not come here for this purpose, to bring them bound before the chief priests?" 22 But Saul (AM)increased all the more in strength, and (AN)confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving (AO)that Jesus was the Christ. The increased strenght the power of the Holy Spirit which comes upon you so by the power of God you can carry the gospel unto the nations ... Saul Escapes from Damascus23 (AP)When many days had passed, the Jews[a] plotted to kill him, 24 but their (AQ)plot became known to Saul. (AR)They were watching the gates day and night in order to kill him, 25 but his disciples took him by night and (AS)let him down through an opening in the wall,[b] lowering him in a basket.Saul in Jerusalem26 And (AT)when he had come to Jerusalem, he attempted to join the disciples. And they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple. 27 But (AU)Barnabas took him and (AV)brought him to the apostles and declared to them (AW)how on the road he had seen the Lord, who spoke to him, and (AX)how at Damascus he had (AY)preached boldly in the name of Jesus. 28 So he went (AZ)in and out among them at Jerusalem, preaching boldly in the name of the Lord. 29 And he spoke and disputed against (BA)the Hellenists.[c] But (BB)they were seeking to kill him. 30 And when (BC)the brothers learned this, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him off (BD)to Tarsus.31 So (BE)the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And (BF)walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, (BG)it multiplied. This message has been sent to me by the Holy Spirit ; remember serving the Lord is no popularity contest...
