Righteousness, The Judgment to Come and Self-Control Part I
There are three types of righteousness. Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." That's self-righteousness. It won't get you to Heaven. Then there is the religious that men call righteousness. They come to Church to hear another sermon, and they trust in their religion and their doctrines for their righteousness. Then there is the righteousness which comes by faith in Jesus. That is the only righteousness that the Father will accept, none other. The gospel is included in "righteousness, the judgment to come, and self-control." You can't preach the gospel without them. It is part of the gospel. Today are many kinds of gospels, the love gospel; which has none of these things. God is a God of love, and whatever I do, He will forgive me and overlook my sin. Paul told Timothy that a time would come when men would not endure sound doctrine (2Timothy 4:3-4). They don't want to hear the truth of the things of God and His judgment to come. But you will find in the gospel of the Apostles and the writings of the O.T. prophets, these things. It is impossible to speak of the eternal things of God without these things, but today it is impossible to speak to the people of God of these things. Then when God begins to move against them in judgment, that they don't understand and can't figure out what is happening, because they weren't prepared for it.
1 John 5:17 "All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death." It is possible to fall into sin, without intent to sin, that will not lead to your spiritual death. It is not a sin of presumption, and when you realize that you have sinned, you turn to God in repentance. (v.18) "We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not." This is so foreign to our way of thinking today. Everyone says, we can't help but sin. Everyone sins, God knows that, so He will overlook our sin. This says that the wicked one can't touch you, when you have the life and power of the living God in you, and He is keeping you, so that you are able not to sin. Romans 6:11 says "reckon yourselves dead to sin..." and Romans 6:14 says "sin shall not be master over you." Sin is not to control our lives any longer, for we are no longer slaves of sin, but of righteousness (Romans 6:18). Those born of the Spirit of God gain something called self-control. 1 John 3:9 Why? There is a self-control, an ability to resist and not give into sin.
That's Revelation 12:11 "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." The Word of our testimony is the Word of God. He said we are able not to sin. Hebrews 12:1 "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us." How do we lay aside the sin that so easily beset us? (v.2) "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." By keeping your eyes on the Cross of Christ. Does this look like your life? Is this how your walking before God? Any other image is that of the fallen nature and of Satan. The religion of man is self-righteousness, and all such is idolatry. This is why men fight over their religion, their doctrines, and over the sheep; trying to steal from the other so they can have the most members and claim to be the fasting growing, etc. It isn't religion, it's Jesus. It's a relationship with Him, of knowing Him, walking by faith in Him. 1 John 5:19-20 "And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life." "Know Him" and be "in Him". We are talking about eternal life, about self-control. (v.21). "Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen." Idols = idolatry.
Righteousness the judgment to come and self-control is descriptive of all the teachings of the apostles and the Lord Jesus. It's God's righteousness, the judgment to come (which most are blind and deaf too today), and self-righteousness (which all who make it will have). Romans 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one." (Psalm 53:1-3) "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." The righteousness that God accepts, originates with Him, and is not from the heart of man. Acts 10:42 "And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead." The quick are the living. Revelation speaks of a people who have a reputation they are alive, but they are dead. We too were dead in our sins and transgressions (Ephesians 2), and most today in the Church are still spiritually dead. God isn't talking about judging the living and separately the physically dead. He will judge both at the same time, before His throne. Those who are alive in Christ, and those dead in their sins. One to eternal life, and the other to life. We are to reckon ourselves dead to sin and alive to God - continually, daily. Are you doing this? God said you don't have to sin. Jesus is coming soon, and we need to be set free. (v.43) "To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins." Remember, to believe is to obey. Acts 3:22-23 "For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people." Judgment. People, singular. Those in the body of Christ, claiming to be His, who do not obey Him, will be destroyed from among His people. Remember John 15:6? "If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned." Matthew 3:10 "And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire." We are talking about people in His house, who have been saved, washed in the blood. Cut down, cast out, of His presence. We claim He is our Saviour. Who is He Savior too? Hebrews 5:9. "And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him." Is God's Word provoking you to obedience? If not, you will be destroyed. 1 Corinthians 1:29-31 "That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord." Is He being made righteousness and redemption to you? Everything good in you is from He, because He put it there. But you have a part to play in your salvation. Your His workmanship (Ephesians 2:10) only if you are daily bringing Him your life and asking Him to do the work in you. It isn't by your willpower or effort. Romans 9:15-16 "For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy." If you have no prayer life, you will be destroyed. 2 Thessallonians 1:4-8 "So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ." That's who receive the judgment of God. (v.9) "Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power." Are you obeying the gospel. It contains the judgment of God.
Say this: "All my righteousness, of my own doings, are filthy rags; but the righteousness of Jesus Christ by the hand of God is eternal, and I have nothing to boast in except Jesus."
Matthew 5:20 "For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven." Where is the kingdom of Heaven located? It's in our midst, among us; but it's not of this realm, it's spiritual. It's here, now, in our midst. Psalm 110:1-2 "The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies." Psalm 23:5 " Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over." Psalm 45:7 "Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." It's in the midst of your enemies, here. But unless your righteousness is greater than of these religious men, you won't enter.
Jeremiah 23:6 "In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS." Jeremiah 33:16 "In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness." Who is your righteousness? Daniel 9:7 "O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee." Zephaniah 2:3 "Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger." Hosea 10:12 "Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you."
2 Corinthians 5:9 "Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him." To be home is to be in this fleshly body, to be absent is to have physically died, and be with Jesus. Paul's ambition was to please God. Everyone here, including myself, will personally stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ. (v.10-11) "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences." Terror, they had a fear of the judgment of God coming on men. They didn't want anyone to face hell without having had opportunity to receive Jesus.
Malachi 3:5 "And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts." 1 Samuel 15:23 told us that rebellion is witchcraft. We are told no to offer the sacrifice of fools (Ecclesiastes 5:1). Not to make false vows. It's better not to make a vow, than to make a vow and not keep it. Ecclesiastes 5:5-6 "Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?" Proverbs 10:19 "In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise." How many vows have you made to God, and then not kept? The stranger in Malachi 3:5 is those who are strangers to the covenant of God, who do not know Him.
1 Peter 4:17-18 One of the commandments of the gospel was for those who believe in Christ to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Do you think that most Christians believe that it is difficult to be saved? Or that the way to Heaven is a narrow way, and includes suffering. 1 Peter 4:1 "Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin." When you stop following the flesh, to do the will of God, you will suffer. All who are being saved, have to suffer. Remember 2 Thessalonians 1:5? "Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer."
Now let's look at some scriptures on righteousness. Isaiah 64:6 "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." How many sin habits are still ruling in your life? Think about this and answer in your heart before God. We are all looking in the same mirror, including me. This all applies to me. What is your thought like? Are your thoughts acceptable to God. Are you producing the fruit of self-control. Self-control is the key to the righteousness of God, and of God's judgment. It is an amazing attitude and attribute.
Matthew 6:1, 33 "Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. . . But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Romans 10:1 "Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved." The Jews are lost. (v.2-3a) "For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness." Most professing Christians do not know about God's righteousness, or what it is about, or how to obtain to it. You say you have a zeal for God. They did too. It's possible to have a zeal for God and be lost. How? Because they missed the righteousness of God, which is Jesus. No matter how much you desire God, or what you do, if you do not come to Jesus, and give you life to Him, you are lost! That's where they missed John 5:39-40 "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life." No one here is desiring to make a reservation to go to Hell. Romans 10:3-4 "Christ is the end of the law for righteousness." Is the law done away with? NO! The law cannot pass away. The law is to bring God's judgment upon those who walk in sin. 1 Timothy 1:9-10 "Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;" Jesus removed having to try to keep the law in the strength and power of our flesh. That's how he "redeemed us from the curse of the law." Jesus didn't do away with the law, He said He came to fulfill it. The key part of this verse is "for righteousness." Jesus is not the end of the law, only the end of the law as a means of attaining righteousness. It's to everyone who believes.
Look at Paul's zeal as an unsaved Jew. Philippians 3:5-9 "Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith." Not a righteousness that is by keeping the law. So many today when you ask them of their relationship with Christ, and if they are saved; will reply: "I don't cuss, I don't drink; I don't commit adultery." They are saying they are acceptable to God because of their own righteousness. Colossians 2:20-23 "Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, (Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? Which things have indeed a show of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh." No matter what you do or don't do, how you live; if Jesus isn't working in your life, and giving you His life, your lost! All who put their faith in religion, are not "found in Christ." Philippians 3:9 "And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith." Religion does away with the finished works of Calvary and does away with the blood. The only righteousness that is acceptable to God is that righteousness that "is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith." (v.10) "That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;" Are you suffering. Are you dead to the world? That's the dead this is speaking of. (v.11) ""If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
Romans 2:4-6 "Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds." If you are walking in unrepentance, you are storing up wrath against you. (v.7-8) "To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath." These are scriptures about God's judgment against those who obey not righteousness but unrighteousness. (v.9-11) "Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God." Romans 11:21-22 "For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off." God's kindness is only to those who endure and continue in Christ. Have we been seeing the Word on righteousness and God's judgment? Many today say they don't want to hear a harsh message, but a smooth one, that is comforting.
Acts 24:25 "And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee." Righteousness, the judgment to come, and temperance or self-control. This is what they preached. This is a part of the faith that is in Christ. (v.24) "And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ." He never called for Paul. Everyone wants to hear that which comforts their flesh, instead of that which deals with their sin.
Every requirement or commandment God gave man, was designed to get men to stop living in the flesh; to put to death the deeds of the flesh; to bring us to self-control. That is the outcome of the commandments. 2 Thessalonians 3:11 "For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies." Disorderly or undisciplined. (v.12-14) "Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed." Withdraw from every brother that is disorderly. One that is out of control. That's what Titus 3:10-11 is about. "A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself."
In Exodus 32: The children of Israel were a people out of control, that Moses gave a strong word too, concerning discipline and self-control. First lets go back to Deuteronomy 8:2-3. "And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live." This is why God tested them. He was trying to bring them to a place of discipline and self-control. While Moses is with God on the Mount, receiving instructions about the tabernacle, and today we are the tabernacle of God; Moses left the people in the care of his brother, the high priest. He took their money (gold) and made for them something to bring comfort and gratification to the flesh. That is what churches are doing today. Building things for the gratification of the flesh; with all kinds of facilities for fun and games and exercise. Exodus 32:21 "And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?" Moses began speaking to the leadership. It's "why do you not speak the truth to them? Why did you water down the truth for them?" When you listen to a smooth word that feeds the flesh, it is bringing great sin upon you. (v.22) "And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief." This is true (Genesis 6:3,5). "And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. . .And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." It is the job of the ministry to keep telling the people the Word, the commandments of God; and not give in to them or compromise. Exodus 32:23-24 "For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf." Sure! Instant bull! Most young minister don't make it for this reason. They cater to those with money, they compromise to please those with money, they accept a bribe offered (like Balaam) and they loose out with God. (v.25) "And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:" This is the summary of what happened. They were out of control. The Word of God, preached to us, will keep us in control. Aaron let them get out of control by giving them what they wanted. Why do preachers give men what they want, preach what they want to hear? Money! It made their enemies mock and deride them. How many are derided by others, because they see out life isn't what we claim. They see and know. They say "I thought he or she was a Christian." And they laugh and mock you, because of your compromise, because they know you are no different than they. We are in the last days before the end of the world, and yet professing Christians continue in their sins. While they are in their final opportunity to be saved, something in their heart keeps them from laying down the abominations of their flesh. (v.26) "Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD'S side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him." Gate of the camp, is the place of authority. Moses is here as a type of savior, way of escape, as the Ark of Noah. (v.27) "And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour." Why were they killed? God is saying that everyone that goes out of control and will not come back to me in repentance, and walk in self-control, will be slain by the sword of my judgment. It will happen to our brothers, friends and neighbors.
Every commandment God gives us is to bring about in our lives the fruit of self-control. When your out of control, and you can't come back to God, and you keep going to church and hearing the Word of God, your religion has become idolatry. You will keep hearing the warning of idolatry to a people out of control. Ezekiel 38: This is about an enemy coming to capture a place with no protection. Every man out of control has no wall of God's protection, he is unwalled; and the enemy can see it in the spirit world. He can see those the presence of God is around, and those from whom the presence of God has departed. Who can stand before God? Only those with clean hands and a pure heart. Who can stand before the enemy? Only those with clean hands and a pure heart, and whose hands do not hold or take a bribe. This is how the enemy thinks. (v.11a) "And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages." The enemy goes to those unwalled. Remember the Perizzite spirit? This person that is unwalled is in a place of leisure, spiritual laziness, slothfulness and passivity. (v.11) "And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates." Nothing is keeping their lives in control. Why do they go to this place? (v.12) "To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land." Self-control keeps the enemy from capturing you. You can only cast out the enemy and stand against them by the presence of God.
Deuteronomy 3:4-5 "And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many." No demon has protection from God. It's easy to be captured when you have no wall of protection. It's easy for you to be tempted when the presence of God has left your life. We are all tempted, but God provides the way of escape. How do you know that God is still with you? You hear the voice of His Spirit, leading you out of temptation. Isaiah 30:21 "And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left." If the Spirit is not speaking to you and leading you out of sin then He has left your life. Romans 8:13-14 "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
2 Corinthians 5:14 "For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead." When you are really in love with Jesus, you will always have self-control.
Proverbs 25:28 "He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls." That says it all. Those are the ones who walk in torment of spirit. They are like a city broken into without walls. A person with no control over his spirit, has no protection from the terrors of hell.
What is idolatry. It's a greater love for other things, more important to you in your life in this world than God. 1 John 5:21 "Little children, keep yourselves from idols."
In part two of this message, we will try to see how the Spirit of God will circumcise our hearts to the place where there is self-control. It is possible. If your walking in a place of ease, of false security, of comfort and comprise, you need to ask God to bring you out of it, and to bring you to a place of hating iniquity and loving righteousness. I pray you will not take these things for granted, that the Word will not be like words passing through the wind, like clouds that disappear when the heat comes. We need for Him to build a wall of protection around us. Do you need God to build a wall in your life, where you are out of self-control? Do you feel you have a sin in your life that you have no power to overcome? Acknowledge your sins before the Lord today.
