SAND CASTLES

SAND CASTLES

Proverbs19:21 “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”

The Scene: A hand-formed sand castle–symbolic of man’s false hopes and dreams. People put their trust in dreams and their time and effort into worldly things that do not last.

As soon as the sand castle was completed the tide began to come in. The waves, like God’s living Word, began to erode the castle of false hopes and dreams. The Word is Jesus Christ. Jesus wants each person to come to Him, place their faith and trust in Him, and in His wisdom. He is our Creator; He has perfect plans for our lives and He desires to replace our own wisdom with His own.

Job 27:11,18 “I will teach you about the power of God; the ways of the Almighty I will not conceal. The house he builds is like a moth’s cocoon, like a hut, made by a watchman.”

Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.”

Colossians 3:2-3 “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.”

7-46 FALSE HOPES AND DREAMS

THE LOVE OF MONEY

THE LOVE OF MONEY

1 Timothy 6:10 ” For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”

The Scene: A house made of stacks of money; a representation of greed. Just as the “money house” was completed a strong wind came and blew all the dollars away.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 “Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.”

The real point is God loves a cheerful giver. And whoever is given more than enough, it is expected by God, that they share their wealth, excess assets, with the needy. That is what is called stewardship. Read the parable of the 10 minas, Luke 19:11-27 for complete understanding.

All God’s children are expected to be good stewards of what has been given them by their Father God. Those who give bountifully will receive bountifully from God . For He says, in His Word, ‘Test me in this.’ (Malachi 3:10) Those who choose to ignore God’s commands on tithes and offerings may be poor in this world and in the next.

Matthew 6:3-4 “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

7-45 STEWARDSHIP/TITHE (GIVING)

KEEPER OF THE KEYS

KEEPER OF THE KEYS

Revelation 1:18 “I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”

The Scene: Representation of Jesus holding all the keys to everything. All judgment has been given to Jesus from Father God. He is King and Ruler of all!

Zechariah 9:10 “I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the war-horses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken. He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.”

Matthew 8:27 “The men were amazed and asked, ‘What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!’ “

Ephesians 1:22 “And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”

Philippians 2:8-11 “And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death–even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ if Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

8-44 GOD OF ALL


PORTICO

PORTICO

1 Chronicles 28:10 “Consider now, for the Lord has chosen you* to build a temple as a sanctuary. Be strong and do the work.” *God chose Solomon to build His temple by appointing him through Israel’s King David because He knew Solomon’s heart. See v.9

1 Chronicles 28:11 “Then David gave his son Solomon the plans for the portico of the temple, its buildings, its storerooms, its upper parts, its inner rooms and the place of atonement.”

The Scene: A portico–covered enclosure with columns. Also shown are doors to the store rooms to the rear of the portico. The columns represent the indicated Holy Scriptures that tell the story of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God, Savior of the world.

The storage areas held the scrolls, the Word of God, delivered to the people through Moses (the Torah) and other items used in the temple.

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.”

When the temple for Father God was to be built, the wall and the portico with columns was the first part to be built to store the Torah. And the colonnade itself provided protection from the weather, a refuge.

John 10:22-23 “Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon’s Colonnade. “

7-43 TEMPLE PORTICO

JESUS IS ALL LIGHT

1 Thessalonians 5:5 “You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.”

The Scene: An Oscilloscope pictureРcomputer generated color spectrum bouncing up and down to music; a representation of infinity.

Jesus is the basis of all light. All color comes from the white light, which is Jesus the Christ of Nazareth (Yeshua Hamashiach). He is the beginning (Alpha) and the end (Omega). He is everything. He is all in all.

Genesis 1:5-8 ” And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day”, and there was evening, and there was morning– the first day.”

We, the people of God, have been filled with the light of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5:8 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.”

7-42 LIGHT

THE SOURCE

John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘ I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ “

The Scene: A lighthouse with its bright light piecing the darkness. People in their boats are seen coming toward the light and into the light source. Some of the people have turned away from the light and returned to the darkness while some have hit the rocky, shallow water and are sunk/lost forever.

John 1:5 “The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.”

God’s people are those born-again Christians called by the Holy Spirit to stay in the light (His Word).

Ephesians 5:8-10 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of light consists of all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.”

7-41 LIGHT OF THE WORD

RELEASED FROM DEATH

Psalm 118:17 ” I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done. The Lord has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death.”

The Scene: Satan, the grim reaper, awaiting an opportunity to take down King David ahead of God’s perfect timing. But instead it is he himself who is taken down by the words of King David, “I will not die.”

Christians, born-again, filled with the Holy Spirit are released from the spirit of death when they die.

1 Corinthians 15:22, 25-26 “For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.”

1 Corinthians 15:55-57 ” ‘Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

We have the victory over death, the spirit of death must let us go, for Jesus Christ, our Messiah and Lord, has given His all for us, so that we may be saved to eternal life in heaven with Him.

7-40 VICTORY OVER DEATH

THE POWER OF GOD

POWER OF GOD

Psalm 147:5 “Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.”

The Scene: Three atomic bomb explosions–symbolic of the power of the Holy Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Psalm 65:6-7 ” Who formed the mountains by your power, having armed yourself with strength, who stilled the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the turmoil of the nations.”

Matthew 8:27 ” The men were amazed and asked, ‘What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!’ “

Mark11:20-21 “In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered.’ “

Our God has the power to do anything, including: healing the spirit, mind and body of the sick, raising the dead, forgiving and erasing our sins!

Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

John 15:7 “If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.”

7-39 GOD’S POWER

TRUTH-ROCK SOLID

TRUTH-ROCK SOLID

John 18:38 ” ‘What is truth?” Pilate asked. With this he went out again to the Jews and said, ‘I find no basis for a charge against him.’ ”

The Scene: Granite rock monolith of T-R-U-T-H representing God’s Word (never changing*). Funny Putty can and gelatin dish, representing relative truth of the world. *Cannot be refuted or proven wrong–once true, always true, is not changed generation to generation by discoveries or men’s ideas.

To the world truth is what ever it takes to get them what they want at the time, ever changing.

John 14:6 “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ “

God’s Word of Truth is from one source; Jesus is the Word. His Word never changes and will never end.

John 16:13 ” But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

On the other hand, the world’s truth is like molding putty or gelatin into various shaped dishes. Man’s wisdom is molded by men’s thoughts, philosophy, opinions, false information, culture, social influences, Satan’s lies.

1 Corinthians 2:14 -15 “The man without the Spirit does not accept the the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment.”

7-32 TRUTH-GOD’S WORD

FOLLOW THE SON

FOLLOW THE SON

Psalm 84:11-12 “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.”

The Scene: A red ball sun on the horizon with an ocean going ship, heading west, toward the setting sun. The ship tacked back and forth, but always generally following the sun.

The Holy Spirit quickened, that the sailing ship represents the Christian’s journey through life, going this way and that way, but staying focused on the son, Jesus Christ. He lights the way–we are to follow. This is His plan.

Revelation 22:5 “There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.”
