Build On the Rock or the Sand

Transcript

Matthew 7:24-27 therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock and the rain fell, and the floods came and the winds blew and slammed against that house and yet it did not fall for it had been founded on the rock everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand the rain fell, and the floods came and the winds blew and slammed against that house and it fell and great was its fall usually we hear this talked about as the rock being the gospel of Jesus Christ but really in the context of what Yeshua’s talking about here he said therefore everyone who hears these words of mine the obvious question is what words is he talking about it’s actually the words that are right before that verse 21 through 23 where He’s talking about talks about the wide gate the narrow gate He talks about lawlessness people will call Him Lord Lord and He’ll say depart from me I never knew you you workers of lawlessness people who have no legitimate boundaries and what He’s saying here everyone who hears these words the words about walking through the narrow gate the words about setting legitimate boundaries that person’s house will be built on a rock what He’s talking about here if you want your house built on a rock and I’m telling you I believe shaking times are coming and it’s critical to have your house built on a rock how do you do that find out the standards find out the boundaries in the word of God and apply them to your life don’t walk outside the boundaries intentionally of course all of us make mistakes and all of us sin from time to time there is none righteous, not one we’ve all missed the mark I realize that and when we do we repent and we ask forgiveness but the goal here is not to establish a lifestyle with no boundaries in the area of your sexual relationships in the area of your food in the area of your money in the area of your physical health your marriage, your relationships there would be many other areas that we could talk about if you want a house built on the rock find out these words that Yeshua spoke and build your house on His words with legitimate appropriate boundaries on the other hand what He said is whoever hears these words and doesn’t do them in other words you heard the message about setting legitimate appropriate boundaries and you did exactly the opposite what He’s saying here is that when the wind comes when the waves come it will knock your house down and it won’t be a surprise there are many people whose financial house has collapsed because they took on too much debt what is debt just refusing to abide by legitimate boundaries you have this much and instead of abiding within that you insist on spending this much and you have to borrow this much to get it when difficult times come what happens that house collapses people’s homes are repossessed people lose their cars people lose their businesses why, because they didn’t have appropriate boundaries and when the difficult times come the wind, the waves come that house will not stand I want for your house to be the house that stands when the difficult times come I’d like to just pray for you Father I pray for each one watching today I pray that your house would be the house that is built on the rock you are His sheep you do hear His voice and you can know what it is He’s directing you to do I pray that your house would be unshakable I pray that you would establish your house upon the words of Yeshua Ha Mashiach Jesus the Messiah the things that He has said that your life would not be Torahlessness would not be lawlessness but your life would be set upon a legitimate appropriate boundaries that keep you safe keep your family safe keep your finances and your health safe I pray that for you today in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
