“Good Advice for America”  Proverbs 14:34 7/1/18 AM 

   What would God say to America, if He spoke audibly to us this Fourth of July holiday? I believe He would remind us of this verse. These truths still hold true for any nation today. Let us see what God’s advice would be to America today.

* The RIGHTEOUSNESS of a nation
          At least 3 things that righteousness implies 

   + SOVEREIGNTY
          For there to be righteousness, then someone who is sovereign must DETERMINE what it is (Psalm 71:19, 98:2)
   +STANDARDS
           The WORD of GOD is our standard (Psalm 119:40, 142)
    +STRAIGHTNESS
             It is one thing to acknowledge a standard, it is another to make it your OWN


 *The REWARD of a nation
    +America has been exalted, but many take CREDIT for that themselves
    +America has been great because its churches carried out the

      GREAT COMMISSION


 *An exalted nation is:
   +SET-APART
   +SAFE (Psalm 119:114)
   +STRONG


*The REVOLT of a nation
   +As surely as righteousness exalts a nation, sin DESTROYS it
   +The God of MERCY and love is also the God of JUDGMENT
   +Sin is:
         ^Undisciplined AIM
         ^Unwise ASSURANCE
         ^Ungrateful ACTIONS

*The REPROACH of a nation
   +“Reproach” is to be DISGRACED or DEFEATED

 

   Here is an outline, complete with verses and answers from the messages shared by our Pastor, Pat Helton. Each Sunday the congregation is given the Sermon Notes but the answers are blank. As each listens, they fill in the answers as Pat delivers the message. Perhaps you may be seeing this for the first time or maybe your're here for review to make sure you filled in all the blanks correctly. Either way, the answers are provided. 


   Each Sermon Note title will be just that, the title of the message but it will include the key scripture or scriptures by chapter and verse as well as the day the message was delivered. It will also have whether it was AM, the morning message, or PM, the evening message. 


   We will post the Sermon Notes here for a  time. They will then be replaced with the next week's messages. The previous Sermon Notes will be available as a PDF file download that you can print or share with some one. 


      Now that the all of this has been said, may you enjoy the Sermon Notes and your study of them with the help of the Holy Spirit who will help you study, understand, and apply what you learn.
