Get Faith And Works In The Right Order! | Derek Prince
We have to get faith and works in the right order! We are saved by grace through faith. Does that mean we don't have to do anything for God? That seems to be unlikely since the Bible commands us to do certain things. So what is the place for these works? This is a clip from the full sermon 'Laying The Foundation - Part 4'.

What is the outworking of God's Word in your life? What effects can God's Word have in your life? The Word of God is alive.

Spiritual nourishment 4. Mental illumination (Ps. 119:130) 5. Physical healing 6. Victory over sin and Satan 7. Cleansing and holiness (Eph. 5:25–27) 8.

Good Things That Keep People Out of Heaven! by David Wilkerson | Must Hear
Good Things That Keep People Out of Heaven! by David Wilkerson Like 👍 & Subscribe - @Ahava Jerusalem #DavidWilkerson #heaven #goodthings #people #family #parents #children #sermon #JesusChrist #God #Faith #Hope #Love #Holy #church #Christian #warning #ministry #bible Believe it or not, many good people who are involved in doing wonderful things will not make it to heaven. Worse yet, many who consider themselves Christians and who are convinced they are going to heaven will be shut out - even though they aren't indulging in gross sin or bad things of any kind! The Christians I'm referring to do not use drugs or alcohol. They don't gamble. They don't indulge in pornography or sexual perversion. They aren't numbered among the wicked and vile. In fact, you may find many of them in church on Sunday morning. And they spend most of their free time with friends and family, enjoying good things. They are family people, with family values. Having said this, I want to make an even bolder statement - one that may offend some. Yet I say it in loving concern for those in the church of Jesus Christ who can't see they are headed for disaster: Some may be in danger of losing their very soul - even though they sit in church, absolutely convinced they are on their way to heaven! This whole idea may seem like a paradox to you. But I want to prove it to you from Scripture. If ever you heed any message the Holy Spirit speaks to you, let it be this one. Here is my point: Some believers will be shut out of heaven not because of the bad things they have done - but because they have become so preoccupied with doing good, legitimate things they neglect the things that really count - eternal things. Their zeal for good things has pushed aside the things of God! Such people have become so engrossed in the here and now that they literally have no time for the deeper things of the spiritual life. They're sweating away to build their business, advance their career, provide for their family - but their focus has become completely out of order! The Bible says: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33). These are Christ's own words - and they are not a suggestion, but a commandment. Jesus means what he says here, promising: "If you seek the Lord first, he will take care of all the things you're toiling over - career, business, home, family. But you must make him your primary focus!" The apostle Paul adds: "Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God" (Colossians 3:2-3). Again, this is not a suggestion, but a commandment. In Greek, the meaning is, "Set your focus, or interests, on things above." In other words: "Set your focus - like iron, like concrete - on the things of God. Make it immovable, intractable." Please understand - God has never demanded that we all sell our houses, land and possessions; he has never said we must quit our jobs and become monks, giving ourselves completely to meditation and Bible study. (Yes, Jesus did say this, but only to one man - because that man's possessions had become his idols. God does not say this to everyone.) People have said to me, "God told me to leave my spouse and children to go into ministry." I look these people squarely in the eye and say, "God didn't tell you that. It was either your own mind or the devil. The Lord isn't in the business of breaking up marriages!" ... 1. Consider What Jesus Says About the Days of Noah and Lot (Luke 17:26-30). ... . Consider the Man Who Made A Great Feast - But Whose Invited Guests All Turned Him Down (Luke 14:16-24). ... 3. Finally, a Large Number Who Ought to Be in the Bridal Procession Will Be Left Out (Matthew 25:1-13). ... https://worldchallenge.org/newsletter/1996/good-things-that-keep-people-out-of-heaven David Wilkerson was the Founding Pastor of Times Square Church in New York City.
