Sermons about Sanctification
As Paul seeks to guide the believers at Thessalonica he gives them "marks" or characteristics that should be true of them as Christ followers. These "marks" should be true of us as well as we seek to follow Christ.
When God is in the house He brings: Victory, Courage, Healing, Peace, Hope, Power, Relief, Refreshing, Salvation, Repentance, Sanctification, Glory, Anointing, Deliverance, Faith, and Purpose.
The stakes of being deceived by others are high in spiritual matters. There are people who would deceive us, and when we allow ourselves to be deceived, we lose. In the Olivet Discourse, Jesus' disciples react to Jesus' statement that the Temple will be destroyed. Like the rest of us, they want to know specifics about future events. However, Jesus' concern was different. Instead of answering questions about details concerning the future, Jesus warned us not to be deceived. This will require constant vigilance, as there are false teachers who would lead us away from Jesus and false teachings that would lead us away from our mission. These messages are still prominent in our culture today, some more direct and others more subtle. The best defense against being deceived by these messages is to hold unswervingly to the truth so that you are not deceived. Be devoted to God's Word through personal and corporate study and application. Also, accept what God's Word says (and doesn't say) about the end times. Jesus never said much about specifics of the end times. He was more concerned with the mission (cf. Acts 1:6-8). May that be our concern, as well!
