Obedience is Better than Sacrifice!

The Lost Coin that Was Found!

This was the last sentence in yesterday’s message. I am scheduled to travel for two weeks, and I will pick up where I left off. I am not picking up the messages about the series, which will be continued after my travels. However, after posting yesterday’s message about how we are not sinners saved by grace, and we are not sinners, this is what I received.

Can a coin be lost and saved at the same time? Woah! That really hit me like a ton of bricks, and I felt it was from the Spirit of God, prompting me to bring even more clarity to the previous messages. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path Psalm 119:105).

Since so many born again believers, including some leaders, are confused about Jesus doing the finishing work that made us completely whole. Let’s talk about the coin and compare it. 

Just as a coin can only be lost or found at the same time? Can a person be lost and found at the same time? Now I’m going to write it like this: You is either a sinner, or a saint; You is either is saint or an ain’t. You is either lost, or you is found.

A coin and sinner stay lost until they are found. For the Son of man has come to seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10). And that goes for anything else that is lost; it can never be found until someone finds it. Compare yourself with the coin that was lost; Jesus found you (you never found Him).

Although God always knows where everybody is, the point is we were lost and God rescued us. Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son (Colossians 1:13), through the power of His Spirit. For by one Spirit, we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13).

Ps. During a conversation last night this was brought out. Throughout the epistles, Paul called the born again believers saints; he never called them sinners. He does not say THE called after (Romans 8:28), because it has already been established.

This is my point when it comes to posting messages; I was planning to post my whereabouts, and what is going on during my travels. I have been encouraged by some others when they tell me how much they enjoy whatever I post, and that is a blessing to me.

Now, pertaining to the last sentence of yesterday’s message, this is how it ended: I am scheduled to travel for two weeks, and I will pick up where I left off. However, you will be hearing from me, Lord willing. So, as you see, a man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps (Proverbs 16:9).

Doing the work of an evangelist. Grace and Peace (Shalom)! Until next time.
