"WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION
GOD USES"
by Pastor Tony Sutton

ABRAHAM Gen 12:4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

*ABRAHAM

WAS OBEDIENT TO GOD'S COMMAND. HAD HE NOT DONE WHAT GOD TOLD HIM THE OUT COME COULD HAVE BEEN VERY DIFFERENT. GOD DID NOT EXPLAIN HIMSELF NOR DID HE GIVE ANY DIRECTION OTHER THAN TO GET OUT FROM HIS COUNTRY, HIS FATHERS HOUSE AND AWAY FROM HIS KINDRED TO A LAND HE WOULD SHOW HIM. GOD CAN DO GREAT THINGS WITH OBEDIENT PEOPLE. YOU CAN SEE THAT GOD GAVE A SEEMINGLY SIMPLE COMMAND AND SIMPLE INSTRUCTION. COMPARED TO WHAT GOD HAD IN MIND IT ALSO WAS A SMALL COMMAND. IF WE ARE EVER TO REACH THE TOP WE MUST START AT THE BOTTOM. SMALL REQUESTS ARE AS IMPORTANT AS LARGE REQUESTS. GOD HAS A PLAN AND HE NEED NOT EXPLAIN IT TO US. ONE REASON IS BECAUSE HIS THOUGHTS ARE MUCH HIGHER THAN OURS, HIS WAYS ARE MUCH HIGHER THAN OURS.
*ABRAHAM WAS WISE. HE WAS WISE TO THE FACT THAT HE KNEW THAT THE INSTRUCTION FROM GOD WAS FAR ABOVE THE COMMON SENSE HE OBTAINED. WE OFTEN VIEW THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND WEIGH THE ODDS AND MAKE A DECISION BASED ON REALITY. NOT KNOWING THE BACK GROUND NOR THE HISTORY, IT'S HARD TO REALLY SAY WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THEIR COUNTRY, IF ANY THING. ALL WE KNOW IS THAT GOD SAID GO. SO HE WENT. HOW MANY TIMES HAS GOD SAID FOR YOU TO DO SOMETHING AND IT DIDN'T REALLY MAKE SENSE SO YOU DIDN'T DO IT?

DAVID

1Samuel 16:13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.(anointed)
DAVID WAS ANOINTED OF GOD AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD CAME UPON HIM. THE PEOPLE FOLLOWED DAVID BECAUSE THE ANOINTING OF GOD WAS ON HIS LIFE, HE DISPLAYED A CERTAIN QUALITY OF HUMBLENESS AND LEADERSHIP. HAS GOD ANOINTED YOU TO A CERTAIN WORK? GOD WAS ABLE TO USE DAVID MIGHTILY BECAUSE OF HIS DEDICATION TO HIM.

PAUL

1Co 4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
1Co 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
PAUL WAS FAITHFUL. PAUL DISPLAYED A LARGE AMOUNT OF FAITH TOWARD GOD. PAUL WAS SERIOUS. HE WAS SO SERIOUS THAT HE RISK ALL THAT HE HAD FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST. ULTIMATELY IT COST HIS PHYSICAL LIFE, BUT HE REALLY LOST NOTHING BUT PAIN, HEARTACHES AND SUFFERING. HE GAINED HEAVEN.
THERE CERTAINLY ARE MANY MORE PEOPLE THAT WOULD QUALIFY AS SUCH. THE QUESTION I WANT TO ASK YOU IS; IF A BOOK WERE TO BE WRITTEN WOULD YOU BE A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION FOR OR AGAINST GOD?

     Friend: Would you let us know if this sermon has led you to the Lord, inspired you to re-dedicate your life to the Lord, or simply been a Blessing unto you?
