NON-REFUNDABLE

 

Living Principles To Build Your Life On

    Non Refundable

I was so angry, I could have punched “somebody’s lights” out, and that’s exactly what I was planning to do, as I turned my car into the gravel parking lot of the mobile home sales office.

 

Now I  want you to know something about me, before I go on with my story, that I’m not usually the kind of guy who goes around looking for someone to beat up.

 

I generally have a very long fuse when it comes to doing or saying something on the magnitude that I had in my mind to do at this moment.

 

If you understand this, then you will appreciate, more fully, just exactly what it took to bring this “mild mannered” guy to a place where he had blood in his eyes and fully intending to do bodily harm.

 

Actually, the whole problem, that I was about ready to deal with, started long before this day.

It started with a fellow that just couldn’t keep his mouth shut; he talked about everybody.  We all knew him to be the town gossip, and none of us guys cared for him much because of it.

 

Well, I could tolerate him as long as he stayed clear of me and my family.  But then he made the fatal mistake of starting a gossip campaign about my sister–and that was the final straw.

 

The door on my Plymouth shut with a bang as I was already making my way toward the mobile home sales office where this “no good, low life” worked!

 

Then, without waiting for the receptionist to announce me, I pushed past her entering his office.  I shut the door behind me.

 

Dead silence!

 

For what seemed like an eternity, as if in suspended animation, neither one of us spoke.  I must have revealed my intentions by the look on my face, or he had heard I was coming, because I knew by the look on his face he knew why I was there!

 

Suddenly, I came alive and moved quickly across the room to where he sat frozen behind his desk.

 

“I hear you’ve been talking about my sister,” I said through clenched teeth, as I reached over the desk, grabbing him by his scrawny lapels, pulling him toward me.

All time seemed to be suspended; we were in slow motion, as the  crazy scene continued to unfold.

 

I was on a pretty good roll by this time and my anger had a head of steam behind it, so I pressed on.

 

“I want you to take back what you have been saying about my sister,” I shouted in his face, as I shoved him back up against the thin wall of the mobile office.  The whole building seemed to shake.

 

Then I drew my fist back to do what I had come to do, but somehow at the last second, I drove it into the wall, just barely missing his head!

 

However, that might have done the trick, because he started trembling and confessing his error in spreading those lies about my sister.  Taking it all back,  he promised he would never do it again.

 

Feeling satisfied that I had accomplished my mission, I made a speedy retreat , spinning gravel as I left the parking lot–not realizing then what I know now–that nothing had actually been accomplished except making a big fool of myself.

 

You see, the words that were spoken, in this case a curse, had already gone out to do the job they were sent to do.  What I DIDN’T know was that he couldn’t call them back.  It was as if an arrow had been shot from a bow and was on the way to its target.

 

When I think of this experience, I am reminded of the false prophet Balaam in Num. 23.

 

It seems that the king of Moab had hired him to speak a curse against the children of Israel.

 

However, the several times that Balaam attempted to pronounce this curse against them, God would stop him.

 

            Finally, after running into a strong rebuke from God, he told the king:

       “Behold, I have received commandment to bless; God has blessed and I cannot reverse it.”  (Num. 23:20)

            Think of it.  God’s Word of blessing to you and I and His will for our lives, is like the arrow that is launched from the bow; it cannot be reversed by man, and God won’t take it back.

            Think of this the next time a doubt begins to overcome you concerning one of God’s promises to you.

            He will not take it back; there is no refund policy on the blessings that He speaks.

            Look what Paul uses as his defense of God’s guaranteed promises in Rom.. 8:31:   Who can stand against us, Paul declares, if God is for us?

            The obvious answer of course is,  “no one can”.

Then he goes on to illustrate his point by stating that, neither death, nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present or things to come, shall be able to separate us from the love of God.

 

God’s purpose then, for sending His blessing to us, is to express His great love for us.   Neither His love nor His promises and blessing will ever be taken back.

 

Agape love, the kind of love that God has for us, is a “one way kind of love”, given without an expected return, and continued in spite of our sluggish or negative response.

 

You might be glad to know that I am not busting heads anymore, however, I DID learn out of that whole experience, that words are either a blessing to someone, or a curse, and either way, once they are released from my mouth–like the arrow, only God in His mercy can retrieve them.

 

Put a watch on your mouth dear ones; only allow blessing to be spoken.

A MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

A Most Wonderful Time of the Year                2013

The birth of Jesus was a major mile marker in God’s plan of the ages. That plan was the reestablishing of His kingdom on earth.

From the dawn of our biblical records the prophets continued to lay out the steps that God would take to orchestrate His perfect plan in the earth. That plan is that He would have sons and daughters submitted to His will, obedient to His law, and living with His love.

This new creation of sons and daughters would live in the reality of the first commands that were spoken into the spirits and nature of Adam and Eve. They were to have complete authority over all the earth. They were to be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it, with all its vast resources, and have dominion over every living creature.

The coming of Jesus to this earth as a babe in the manger was the capstone of these prophecies. Christmas celebrates that birth, which set the clock of history and began the eternal Kingdom of God that will never be overcome, die or fade away.

The coming of Jesus, at this Christmas season, is Daniel’s stone that struck and destroyed the image,and became a great mountain that is filling the whole earth.

Christmas celebrates and spotlights the Word of God that was made flesh, dwelling among men and women and bringing heaven to earth.

Christmas is a story of the Father’s love. A story of an unending forgiveness. A picture of total commitment and sacrifice for a rebellious family that He was calling back to Himself.

And in the end, Christmas is the signal for the end.

The end of sin and the bondage that it brings.

The end of separation from God the Father, His love, His presence and His blessings.

And finally the end of death and all that it produces.

A new day dawned on that first Christmas morning and the reverberation of its message, the same message that the shepherds heard, continues to impact generation after generation. Christmas continues to speak of His glory and still brings good news of great joy.

The celebration of Christmas continues to shout with a loud voice and declared that “there is born unto you this day a Savior who is Christ the Lord.”

Arlis and I, and all the partners of Faith Producers Ministries wish you a very Merry Christmas and a supernatural New Year.

Blessings to you all,

George Watkins

RAPTURED

 

 

  Raptured

The word “rapture” may very well win the prize for the most recognized word in the church world; but it is not found in the Bible.  To many, the word brings visions of either delight or dread.  By some strange twist of events, this wonderful word has been reserved for some mysterious event at the end of the world.  Of course, we know that the word “rapture” means to be “caught up.”  And even though the word itself may not be in the bible, we know that the experience of being caught up certainly is.

There are any number of biblical illustrations that display the spirit of rapture. It is that act of being rescued out of serious danger; the experience of change that only God can bring; and also, the actual transfer of someone from one geographical location to another.

Among the most well known raptures in the Old Testament is Enoch, an Old Testament saint; who walked so close to God that the Bible says of him:  “He was not, for God took him.”  He went for a walk one night with God and never came home.  (Gen. 5:22. Heb. 11:5) Then, of course, there was Elijah.  He was out for a walk one day with his disciple, Elisha, when horse and a fiery chariot swooped down between them.  Elijah stepped onto the chariot and was suddenly caught up, taken out of the sight of those who looked on.

The New Testament version of this rapture business has to be in Acts 8.  There, the angel of the Lord told Philip to go south from Jerusalem to Gaza.  On the way he encountered a spiritually hungry man from Ethiopia.  Philip taught him about Christ, then took him into the water for baptism.  As soon as the baptism was completed the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip up and away.  Evidently the Spirit of the Lord deposited Philip about 25 miles away at the city of Azotus where he continued to preach Christ.

However, as exciting as physical translations and rapture may be, to be caught up into the spirit world would be far more glorious.  Two examples of this spiritual rapture in the New Testament are the  apostle Paul, and the apostle John of the Book of Revelation.

The apostle Paul was caught up into the third heaven where he saw and heard such wonderful and mysterious things that the Spirit of God would not let him tell about it. On the other hand, the apostle John was worshipping on the Lord’s Day while imprisoned on a deserted island.  While worshipping’ he was caught up in the Spirit where he witnessed the unfolding of the marvelous and sometimes mysterious Book of Revelation.

So, what would be your choice?  To be snatched up and taken 20 miles to another town, or to be taken into another world, the world of the Spirit where God lives. To my way of thinking, it seems obvious that to be taken up into the world of the Spirit would be more powerful, and of greater value.

The long range benefit of seeing and hearing into the realm of the Spirit is the reason that men and women of spiritual hunger spend a lifetime seeking it.  And, for those fortunate ones who seemingly stumble onto a key, or find a doorway into that spiritual world, we applaud.  And we sit at their feet and wonder at the marvelous things of God that we hear revealed.  Now that’s true rapture: to be taken from one realm to another.

But what about us common folk, you say?  Those who may never travel through space or step into the third heaven as Paul did.  How are we supposed to approach this idea of being raptured by God?

Let me tell you how wonderful God is; and that He never leaves anyone out of His rescue plan.  When David wrote that God would deliver him (you and me) out of trouble or deliver us from our enemies, he was speaking directly to the subject and the power of rapture.  The ability that God has to snatch us up and out of our problems is classic Christian living.  To know and confess that these troubles (i.e. sickness, poverty, etc.) are momentary and fading circumstances, are part and parcel of this great Christian confession.

Another important lifting experience that can happen for an individual or for a congregation of believers is where God “lifts up” their faith or spirits, by a visitation of angels or through an invasion of the Holy Spirit.

For example, there is a village in Guatemala that apostle Norman Parish tells about.  Before the gospel came to them they were a people who were under the typical bondage of the devil: drunkenness, poverty, immorality, loss of crops, and lack of rain. But, when God invaded their village with the good news of rapture, i.e. being snatched out of one situation or world into another, everything changed.  Deaths were reduced, crops were increased.  Virtue was honored, and life and health were lifted to a level never known before.

That story can be repeated in some form by everyone who has encountered the transforming power of Jesus Christ.  In truth, you have been raptured into another world.  Paul tells us that we are a new kind of creation (2 Cor. 5:17), and that we have been translated (raptured) out of one kingdom (the kingdom of darkness) into the kingdom of His marvelous light.  (Col. 1:13, 1 Pe. 2:9)

Wow!  Now that’s what I call a wild ride! Or, as they said when I was a teenager when something was exciting, “What a trip!” Let me assure you that no one who believes that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God has missed out on this trip!

But the news just gets better as we continue to dig into His truth.  The rapture never stops.  He continues His pledge to take us up and out of our trouble, heal our sickness, break our bondages, and give us peace.  (Lk. 4:18)

This week I’ve experienced another world.  The world where faith is high and God is so close you can smell His aftershave.  And I also know what Enoch must have felt like.  Who wants to go back to the world where tempers are short, money is scarce, and friends are fleeting?

No wonder we are commanded to “walk in the Spirit” (Gal. 5:25). This must be the “natural place” for Christians to live all the time.  After all, it’s where our Father lives, isn’t it?  It must be the right place to be.

So, when you hear that wonderful word “rapture” next time, don’t panic, wondering if you’ll be good enough to be snatched up in the night.  But rather rejoice and expect to be taken out of your momentary trouble into another world where God has already fixed it for you. It’s called the world of faith, where nothing is impossible to those who believe.

Away we go!

WALKING BY FAITH IS ALWAYS MORE FUN

Walking By Faith is Always More Fun

The engine in my 396 cu in 4 speed Chevy Impala sputtered then started again. I took a quick look at my gas gauge and my heart sunk. I had forgotten to get gas at the last town and the middle of Nebraska is no place to run out. It can become long and lonely when the sun sets.

My faithful Chevy shuddered again. This time the roar of the engine stayed silent. I wheeled my car and trailer to the side of the road and sat listening to the Nebraska wind blow against the car, before anyone spoke.

When something unexpected happens on life’s journey we usually go through several levels of emotions before we actually get to what is really happening.

The first wave of emotions is usually that of guilt for finding yourself in such a foolish position. Most often, the next level is accusation, blaming someone else beside yourself for the mess that you are in. When the pain of that is over, especially if you tried it on your spouse, some are foolish enough to move to a higher level, and blame God.

I’m not admitting what my response was that night long ago. But I do remember that at some point we agreed that God still had His hand upon us and there was a plan unfolding that we didn’t see coming.

We took hands and agreed together in prayer that there was a way through this momentary problem and that His plan was better that ours. We rejoiced for the privilege of walking by faith.

As we finished prayer, the crunch of gravel behind us caught our attention. It was a young couple that pulled off to see if we needed help. As it turned out they were the pastors of the Nazarene Church in the next town down the road.

They took us for gas and gave us ten bucks. Ten dollars in that day was three tanks full of gas, enough to get us to our next meeting.

We encouraged them in their ministry and prayed together before we parted. I’ve often wondered what the full picture was from God’s view. Because, it seems things that happen to us in the walk of faith always work on everyone that is involved.

Our faith was exercised and we were encouraged with the faithfulness of our Father. This story has been told many times to multiple groups of people who by the hearing of our faith walk, their faith was strengthen also.

On the other hand the young Nazarene pastor and his wife had an opportunity to grow in their faith walk and sensitivity toward hearing the voice of the Lord. They gave a sacrificial gift into our ministry and I know were blessed in the doing.

It’s always a win-win when God puts these little momentary problems together and throws them in the middle of our faith walk. Remember that James tells us in the first chapter second verse “ to count it all joy when we have these various trials”.

So I conclude that “WALKING BY FAITH IS MORE FUN”!

Laugh it up it’s good for the soul,

Dr. George Watkins
