The events of the last 4 months have closely modeled Paul's description of the "Last Days" in 2 Timothy. As we seek to have a significant influence on our culture, this makes our calling more challenging, but also becomes an exciting opportunity to be used of the Lord. In this last study of the series, we examine the characteristics of the time we live in , and hear Paul's charge to all believers to live by the Spirit and bear tangible fruit. The Word of God is profitable for the strengthening of our character and giving us a powerful message to take to a lost and confused world.

Tuning In

As listening has become more selective, because of technology advancements and the polarizing nature of our culture, it is more crucial to effective communication than ever before. In talking to the "rich young ruler", Jesus provides a powerful example of listening with love, so that He could lead this man to the real issues of his spiritual struggle. This provides a model for us as we seek to influence people to know and trust Christ, and spurs us to us even times of failure to teach others.

Fighting Off Cancellation

The disturbing trend in our society is "cancel culture", which involves shaming and boycotting anyone who doesn't agree and comply with what the world declares acceptable. So how do Christians not only offset this, but also have significant influence despite it? During Nehemiah's time, opposition to rebuilding the wall was fierce, and the people quickly became demoralized when they were criticized and ridiculed. The reasons for this hostility parallel what we face today. Nehemiah's response to call on the Lord for help and stir the people to get to work provides a powerful example for us to follow.

The Unimaginable

As Abraham faithfully obeyed God's difficult command and prepared to sacrifice Isaac, he did so with the resolute conviction that God "is able to do exceedingly abundantly all that we ask or think". His faith was stretched to the edge, but he had a next level calling that required that depth of faith. The Lord honored his fear and faith, and said Abraham's name twice as he stopped him, to reassured Abraham that He really was providing a substitute. That moment gave a powerful, multi-faceted picture of Jesus Christ, Who was offered as the Substitutionary Sacrifice for our sins. What started as an unthinkable step of faith points us to the imaginable love and mercy the Lord shows to all mankind.

Holding Nothing Back

In the 3 days of walking to the mountain in Moriah, Abraham had plenty of time to reconsider his obedience to God's command. Even as the knife was in the air, the temptation to compromise was strong. But Abraham feared the Lord, and that determines everything in life. Fearing the Lord involves having a true perspective of Who He is and who you are, and then responding with reverence, faith and obedience. Isaac would never forget his father's conviction, and Abraham's decision not to withhold his son continues to influence, even today.

That Last Moment

When our faith is stretched to levels that are beyond uncomfortable, do we not only stay faithful, but also turn that to be a spiritual influence? Abraham was called to an unimaginable assignment, but his lifelong commitment to model and teach conviction drove his response. Trusting the Lord without hesitation, and full confidence the Lord would provide, his actions built a generational legacy in the moment, and for all of history. As we follow his example, we can have similar influence through our lives. Video of this service is also available: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4yxK4MqMMU&feature=youtu.be

Armed And Ready

No matter how the enemy tries to trap or discourage us, as believers we have victory through Jesus Christ, and an exciting responsibility to be ready to step up in whatever opportunity He puts before us. When Elijah shows up at Elisha's house and throws his mantle on him, Elisha not only responds without hesitation, because he knows the Lord is at work. He also seeks after a double portion of the anointing and blessing that he saw on Elijah's life. The Bible tells us these were people just like us, with the same Holy Spirit...which proves to us that we can have similar spiritual influence on anyone we meet.

The Only Answers

Disease. Homicides. Protests. Riots. We live in a turbulent time, and the answers mankind has thrown at the problems provide no real solutions. Most people are trying to figure out how to be on the right side of the issues while holding onto their convictions. In this study from Isaiah 60, Jamie Cannalte reminds us of the power of God's help during this time of confusion and crisis. The Lord has given us two simple, basic actions--prayer and love--which bring His intervention, and lead to healing and unity. So it is incumbent on Jesus' disciples to be the ones who rise up and make these our foremost priority.

Resisting Revenge

When a situation is unfair, or people are being harsh, how do we not only respond well, but also have a strong spiritual influence? David faced that when Saul turned on him out of resentment and jealousy. Saul was bring driven by an evil spirit set on destroying David, who was anointed by the Lord and living for Him. So when David had an opportunity to get revenge, he resisted that temptation and acted in a way that honored the Lord and even Saul. The impact that had on Saul's heart reveals to us that no matter how difficult our situation is, we can influence people to understand God's love and mercy.

Fake News

Since Genesis 3, the devil has been manipulating the Truth to push distrust in God and His Word. Despite all the evidence God gave Israel about His faithful provision, as they moved through the desert and spied out the land, they doubted and rebelled. So when 10 spies came back from the Promised Land with a report bull of doubt and fear, the people believed that instead of the 2 spies who affirmed that the Lord was keeping His promises. Even the fruit they brought back provided clear symbolism of what the Lord wants to do to bring victory to our lives. This study calls us to reject a focus on perceived obstacles and a rationalization of doubt by confidently trusting in God's sufficiency.
