Notes & Transcripts

Secular:

  • .Memories
  • .Oh when we fight… they last forever!!
    • (We are bitter… make’em pay)
  • .Oh when we love our memory can be so short…
    • Love - - forgive them!
  • .Good is good and Holy…
    • He remembers those who remember Him
    • But unfortunately for those who ‘forget’ about Him… He remembers them too!

Biblical:

Jude - 14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men: "See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones

 15 to judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts they have done in the ungodly way, and of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him."

 16 These men are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.

 17 But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.

 18 They said to you, "In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires."

 19 These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.

 20 But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.

 21 Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.

 22 Be merciful to those who doubt;

 23 snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear-- hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

 24 To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy--

 25 to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men: "See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15 to judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts they have done in the ungodly way, and of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him." So you remember! 16 These men are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.

  • .War in Terrorism is the Us and their Allies answer to injustice
    • Troops bring justice / truth
    • Try criminals (just as God tries the ungodly)
  • .The day will come when the army of God invades the world…
  • 2 Peter 3:7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
  • .God will sort out those who “attend” for the wrong reasons and those who belong to the true church
    • Merely Attend:
      • Grumblers
      • Faultfinders
      • Self-interested
      • OWN ADVANTAGE!
  • .GOD remembers you… so you remember GOD!

But even in judgement: NIV Genesis 8:1 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.
