    • Liberty University Convocation ( Published on Feb 6, 2015 )
      On February 4, 2015, at Convocation, North America’s largest weekly gathering of Christian students, Mattie Montgomery addressed the student body at Liberty University. Mattie talks about using platforms. He reads from a passage in Acts. This ties into his message about platforms and reaching the world for Jesus regardless of the platform and just walking along with God instead of just working for God.

Mattie Montgomery Tells His Story

  1. If I want to leave people better than how I find them, I can not be taking from them, I have to give to them
  2. God is always in the background, working on me,
  3. I did not have anything to give to anyone, and so I had to leave everything I had behind

 

Todd White, Mattie Montgomery, Ben Fitzgerald and Daniel Hagen Q&A

Todd White

    1. .. May give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in your knowledge of Him. I ask that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know the hope of His calling, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and the surpassing greatness of His power to us who believe. He displayed this power in the working of His mighty strength … ( Ephesians 1:18 )
    2. Continue in Him
      • I have written these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you.   And as for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But just as His true and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught. ( 1 John 2:26-28 )
    3. Studying the Bible without the Holy Spirit teaches you only Head Knowledge
    4. I not only want to read the Bible, I want your word to read me
      • So that my sins and lies can be illuminated
    5. All of the gifts are a byproduct of being a son

Mattie Montgomery

  1. If and when is it right to talk about Eternity and Hell, when Evangelizing
    • We evangelize because we are conscious of Hell and Eternity
    • Growing our Church will not sustain us
    • If one loses focus of hell, we will lose our Passion
    • Conscious of Eternal blows wind in our sail\soul
    • They may never get another opportunity to hear the Gospel
    • Met 3 young men
    • One said he did not need prayer, as he was his own God
    • There was an accident and the lost man lost his Life
    • The reality of Eternity and the Closeness of Eternity has to be central to the Evangelizing Lifestyle

 

Momentum

  1. Encounter
    • Living God
  2. Faith
    • It does not take Faith to believe God exist
    • It takes Faith to to put your Life in his hands and not know what he will do with it
    • Direction without Encounter is Religion
  3. Altar in front of the throne of God, because the place of encounter is the place of Worship
  4. There is a purpose for encounter and that purpose is Transformation
  5. The Servant’s Obedience
    • The Lord has given me an Instructed tongue ( Isaiah 50:4 )
      • The Lord GOD has given Me the tongue of disciples, That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word.
        He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple.
        The Lord GOD has opened My ear; And I was not disobedient Nor did I turn back.…

Scriptures

David’s Tabernacle

Amos 9:11-12

In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.

Acts 15:16-17

“‘After this I will return,

and I will rebuild the tent of David that has fallen;

I will rebuild its ruins,

and I will restore it,

that the remnant of mankind may seek the Lord,

and all the Gentiles who are called by my name,

says the Lord, who makes these things known from of old.

1 Corinthians 10:32-33

Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.

Ephesians 2:14-16

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.

Spiritual Warfare

Ephesians 6:19

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel …

Holy Spirit

Zephaniah 3:9-10

For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language,
That they all may call on the name of the Lord,
To serve Him with one accord.
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
My worshipers,
The daughter of My dispersed ones,
Shall bring My offering.

God’s will (  by David Patty )

Galatians 5:25

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives

1 Thessalonians 4:3

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication

1 Peter 2:13-15 ( Submission to Authority )

For the Lord’s sake, submit to all human authority—whether the king as head of state, or the officials he has appointed.
For the king has sent them to punish those who do wrong and to honor those who do right.
It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you.

Acts 13:2-4  (Paul’s First Missionary Journey)

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,
“Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.

 

Acts 15:28 ( The Letter to the Gentile Believers )

…”Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will also report the same things by word of mouth. “For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay upon you no greater burden than these essentials: that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication; if you keep yourselves free from such things, you will do well. Farewell.”

Acts 16:6-10 – Kept by the Spirit

And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia.
And when they had come up to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them.
So, passing by Mysia, they went down to Troas.
And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” And when Paul had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.

  3. Help someone else get free

Zac Hicks On “God Inhabits the praise of his people”

Preface

Early this week, I listened in on one of Pastor Jim Cymbala’s sermons.

Pastor Jim used the phrase “God inhabits the praise of his people” that I wanted to cross reference and so I googled it.

Zac Hicks

And, as often happens these days, someone else Googled on same and chose to consolidate existing thoughts or dig deeper for new meanings.

Zac is one of those people and here he writes and later speaks about it.

Messiah Ben Joseph

Background

This is a subject that I will rather not touch, but it is an interesting one that has very low YouTube hits.

 

Introduction

Chris White

There is a relatively straight to the point Christian that I found on YouTube.

He has an interesting take on the Rapture.  He believes in something called Prewrath Rapture.

Here are some links:

  • Prewrath Rapture

He cites Charles Cooper, a former lecturer of “Homiletics and Hermeneutics” at Moody Bible Institute.

I will let you seek out Charles’ work, via YouTube and other medium, on your own.

 

Back to Chris, sometimes this last week or so, I found a couple of more thought provoking materials.

Messiah Ben Joseph

In the Ben Joseph video he speaks to how the major Abrahamic religions all await a messiah or a set of messiahs.

He proposes that Judaism await Messiah Ben Joseph and Messiah Ben David; otherwise known as the suffering and the reigning Messiah.

So who is this figure “Messiah Ben Joseph”?  Glad you asked.

Here are some commentaries:
