Online Service Message Memorial Day
Salvation and The Narrow Gate
Let us PRAY
Father God today we make memory of those who died in battle that we may be free from tyrany in our lands.
We ask you God of all comfort to be with those who sorrow and mourn their loss.
Lord Jesus we remember your great sacrifice, that you took on the sins of the world and died in our place on the cross.
You were wounded for our transgressions,
bruised for our iniquities and by your stripes we are healed.
Thank you for your perfect sacrifice and gift of eternal life to those who come to you.
We bring you our worship, our praise and thanks
May your Holy spirit brood over our nations
and hearts be softened to receive your mercy and grace
and many come to know you as their Lord and Saviour

Salvation and The Narrow Gate
Old Testament Readings
Proverbs: 16:22
Job 27:1-23.
New Testament Readings
Luke 10:38-42
Revelation 22:6-19

The Message:

I bring today something which I have previously written as It was laid on my heart to bring again on this Memorial Day.
Proverbs: 16:22 Understanding is a wellspring of life to Him that hath it; but the instructions of fools is folly.
There is so much that God can teach us from this line of proverbs if we meditate on this.
In the past of bringing a message for Online Sunday Service I had waited on the Lord during the Sunday morning writing notes on what I felt the Holy spirit would have me bring, this meant I would have to type up and assemble into sentences for the reader.
The other day while in the garden the first thing I read was this verse from Proverbs I began making notes on the verse when another popped into my mind MY YOKE IS EASY. God was showing me there is nothing wrong in preparing a message in advance to draw upon, and His Holy spirit continued to give me what follows.
The Message:
Salvation and The Narrow Gate
You may notice I post up Daily Devotionals by Michael D Inman
who usually ends his message
"Going to Church doesnt make you a Christian,
just like standing in the garage dont make you a car."
So lets examine the verses God gave me and the thoughts on.
When we became a Christian we put our faith in Jesus.
We can only claim this, if we have done this in our hearts
by confession of knowing we are sinners in need of forgiveness
and accepting Jesus gift of pardon and Salvation...........
not by listening to words of traditions of men or relying on another member of family that we have gone along to church with etc.,
But we come to Our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ His Son.
You may be thinking,
why is Elaine bringing this Basic message,
which we know and have heard, read on for there are lessons for all here and who knows what God may reveal to our hearts as we go through these obvious...
Think about Michael Inman's quote going to church doesn't make you a Christian,--
There isn't a place in the bible which says you can be a nominal Christian.
Christian was the name given to the first disciples for they Followed CHRIST they acted Christlike, they devoted their lives to follow him in His ways, can you honestly say that your example is that of those disciples.?
Jesus said my yoke is easy.
How can that be you may say, when I am expected to read the bible and pray, good point on the surface of that....
Is there a sport or hobby you love, did you pick up any tips or lessons, did your heart applaud even give a shout for joy when someone scored a point or you admired an artisits work and endevoured to copy or follow their example.
Is there someone you enjoy being with even fallen in love with.
Some have experienced love at first sight,
others get to enjoy someones company get to know them and fall in love.
The point I am making when you read the Word of God
as explained in proverbs you need to get the understanding of the bible,
it is not a novel to read through and profess I've read the bible.
We see in the first line of Job 38
1.Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
2Who is this that darkeneth counsel
by words without knowledge?
But allowing God to bring revelation that it may bring an abundance in your life.
If you don't you are missing out on the most fantastic experience of your life, in having a relationship with Almighty God.
If you feel you are not hearing from him, which I must confess I have had these times, there is a possibility you are seeking for the wrong reasons, or your relationship is now gone luke warm, then you know the answer is to get back into His word and having lengthy conversations with Him.
Pray ask God to reveal himself to you through his Word, get aquainted with God just like any relationship.
He promised he is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him, The wellspring of living water spoken of in the proverb is the Holy spirit, who will fill you with His spirit, sometimes we often forget as our natural bodies need water and daily nourishment, so it is with being Bornagain of His spirit, we need this daily,
the eating of his Word to us, our prayer relationship that we may be full of the living water, only then our daily life and walk will be easy as we take his YOKE upon us.
Our reading from the New Testament Luke 10
we observe what Jesus said to Martha and how we need to take this onboard from the Master,
Only one thing is needed and Mary had discovered it, the exceeding greatness of his power by being at the feet of Jesus.
Spirit of God reveal this to me.
The simple knowledge of who Jesus is as we have received so walk in Him.
The narrow gate leads us into salvation:
As we are disciples then we grow spiritually in the path from wisdom and revelation through the Holy spirit not as worldly wisdom, the eyes of our heart being enlightened by the spirit of truth and revelations, it is Gods solution for this fresh revelation of work of Christ in us that we may see him.
This simplicity Paul spoke of to the Corinthians,.. religion is complicated but his yoke is easy.
Bringing us back to the yoke which is easy.
We have much deposited in our lives that we do not realise, it is not getting more of God but reducing what is in our lives that what he has deposited in us will be the first and fullness in our lives.
Needing to die to self.
God's purpose and plan for you is not just getting you into heaven but to gather you together in all things, asking God to show us kingdom prospective having Christ's pre-eminance in my life
that I will grow spiritually in Christ and live the abundance he has for me.
The Word of God explains to us we must be Born Again
John 3:3 - In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again." (NIV)
Often people need an explanation what does this mean?......
Have you observed a caterpillar as it stalked the leaves of a plant,
munching them into oblivion, one day, the caterpillar would form a cocoon, weaving its way into a complete enclosure.
The days would pass, and the cocoon would become
a chrysalis, which would dry and eventually start to split. From that
enclosure would emerge a miracle.
Movement from within would lead to the creation ofsomething new.
From that rather gruesome-looking caterpillar would emerge a
butterfly, a completely changed creature. In the sunshine, its wings would unfurl, giving birth to a beautiful butterfly.
Which brings me to the verse of scripture Revelation21:14
14 Blessed are they that wash their robes, that they may have the right [to come] to the tree of life, and my enter in by the gates into the city
Our lives are spread before us, and we are given a choice which we can ill afford to ignore. For those of us who believe and come to know Jesus, we are born again, and one day, we will be dressed in rich robes, much like the butterfly.
There are also those who will choose to stay wrapped in a chrysalis-like form, stuck in a cocoon forever.
Which brings me to this verse for us to meditate upon.
Job 27:18-19 - The house he builds is like a moth's cocoon, like a hut made by a watchman. He lies down wealthy, but will do so no more; when he opens his eyes, all is gone. (NIV)
We only need look around us to observe the troubled time,
how we need to have a strong anchor in God.
Don't wait until trouble is at our door but let us build up now in our faith that when troubles come against us we have the rock Christ Jesus.
You may be going through troubled times right now.
Whatever your storm of life May Christ be your anchor
Christ is the answer.

May God add his blessing.

Old Testament Reading
Proverbs 16

Proverbs concerning Life and Conduct

1The preparations of the heart in man,
and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.
2All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes;
but the LORD weigheth the spirits.
3Commit thy works unto the LORD,
and thy thoughts shall be established.
4The LORD hath made all things for himself:
yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
5Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD:
though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
6By mercy and truth iniquity is purged:
and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
7When a man's ways please the LORD,
he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8Better is a little with righteousness,
than great revenues without right.
9A man's heart deviseth his way:
but the LORD directeth his steps.
10A divine sentence is in the lips of the king:
his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.
11A just weight and balance are the LORD's:
all the weights of the bag are his work.
12It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness:
for the throne is established by righteousness.
13Righteous lips are the delight of kings;
and they love him that speaketh right.
14The wrath of a king is as messengers of death:
but a wise man will pacify it.
15In the light of the king's countenance is life;
and his favor is as a cloud of the latter rain.
16How much better is it to get wisdom than gold!
and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
17The highway of the upright is to depart from evil:
he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
18Pride goeth before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly,
than to divide the spoil with the proud.
20He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good:
and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.
21The wise in heart shall be called prudent:
and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
22Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it:
but the instruction of fools is folly.
23The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth,
and addeth learning to his lips.
24Pleasant words are as a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
25There is a way that seemeth right unto a man;
but the end thereof are the ways of death.
26He that laboreth, laboreth for himself;
for his mouth craveth it of him.
27An ungodly man diggeth up evil:
and in his lips there is as a burning fire.
28A froward man soweth strife:
and a whisperer separateth chief friends.
29A violent man enticeth his neighbor,
and leadeth him into the way that is not good.
30He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things:
moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.
31The hoary head is a crown of glory,
if it be found in the way of righteousness.
32He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty;
and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
33The lot is cast into the lap;
but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.

Old Testament Reading
Job 27
Job Describes the Portion of the Wicked
1Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,
2As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment;
and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;
3all the while my breath is in me,
and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;
4my lips shall not speak wickedness,
nor my tongue utter deceit.
5God forbid that I should justify you:
till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.
6My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go:
my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.
7Let mine enemy be as the wicked,
and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.
8For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained,
when God taketh away his soul?
9Will God hear his cry
when trouble cometh upon him?
10Will he delight himself in the Almighty?
Will he always call upon God?
11I will teach you by the hand of God:
that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.
12Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it;
why then are ye thus altogether vain?
13This is the portion of a wicked man with God,
and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty.
14If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword:
and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
15Those that remain of him shall be buried in death:
and his widows shall not weep.
16Though he heap up silver as the dust,
and prepare raiment as the clay;
17he may prepare it, but the just shall put it on,
and the innocent shall divide the silver.
18He buildeth his house as a moth,
and as a booth that the keeper maketh.
19The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered:
he openeth his eyes, and he is not.
20Terrors take hold on him as waters,
a tempest stealeth him away in the night.
21The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth:
and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.
22For God shall cast upon him, and not spare:
he would fain flee out of his hand.
23Men shall clap their hands at him,
and shall hiss him out of his place.
New Testament Reading
Luke 10

Jesus Visits Martha and Mary
38Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village:
and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
39And she had a sister called Mary,
which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
40But Martha was cumbered about much serving,
and came to him, and said,
Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone?
bid her therefore that she help me.
41And Jesus answered and said unto her,
Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
42but one thing is needful;
and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
New Testament Reading
Revelation 22:6-19
6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

My soul is filled with joy and gladness
Since Jesus came to me.
His love has banished all my sadness,
From sin I am set free.
He set me free, He set me free,
I was blind, but hallelujah, now I see!
I shall ne’er forget the day
When He washed my sins away,
And He set, He set me free.
The Comforter divine is dwelling
Within my soul today;
His love to others I am telling
Since Jesus came to stay.
The grace of Jesus hath abounded
For all my sins I see,
Salvation walls have me surrounded,
From sin I am set free.
<>< <>< <><
Let us exalt the name of Jesus our King
Worship our Lord in an attitude of meditation
as we come into Hi presence with thanksgiving and praise.
