Littie Man's Fearful Heart Part 11 As we said in part one, instead of your heart looking for the Lord, you are looking after world conditions. That is why you are fearful and dying of heart failure. You worry day and night about what is going to happen next because you are not saved. Some of you church mem bers are the most fearful. You say you are saved, but you have more fear in your hearts than the men in government. We are facing a crisis now, worldwide, and people are concerned about Bosnia, but really all eyes are on the Middle East. Government leaders are afraid Russia is going to inter vene in Israel because that old bear is showing her force again. Russia is going to invade Israel, according to Ezekial 38 and 39. But, I'm no more afraid of that than I am of a Doodle Bug in the sand that I cannot see. Why? Because God is going to deal with Russia and destroy her Himself Mr. Administrator, it’s your loss for not taking God at His Word, you are the loser, not God. The world today is ruled by unsaved men. That's why we are in the mess we are in. Just think, what kind of world would we have if all of city, state and federal officials were saved? If you could walk through the hall of govern ment and each government official you talked to was praising the Lord for saving such a sinner as we are, what a different country we'd have to live in. That's right. That is coming one day. When the Lord Jesus comes back to reign on earth for a thousand years, we'll have it like that. Call me crazy if you want to, but every officer in the gov ernment will be saved. Every mayor, councilman, governor, senator, conwessman, cabinet member and every president and prime minister will be saved. All praising the Lord for redeeming them. That will be a glorious time in the Lord. But today we live in a world where men are dying of heart failure because you won't bow now to Christ as your Lord Pastor rises to lead and your Savior. In salvation, God gave man a new heart (Ezekial 36:26). Not a heart of fear such as the unsaved have, but a heart of love for Christ, supremely. Then there flows out from the new heart a general love for all mankind. But now you are fearful of world conditions because you don't have a new heart, which only comes from God. Let me say this: by nature, no sinner can hunger after the Lord, by nature you can't desire holy things. Did you get that? 'Your nature is of the Devil, all it can do is hate. The whole world is grap pling with this sin of hatred. Youll never solve it because you will not have the Man, Christ Jesus, to rule over you. Continued from page 10A "I think too many times we have the church as one high standard, and many times we get caught up in people who have high morals and high standards rather than dealing with the folk who the word is really for — the downtrodden and the outcasts. "Churches are geared too much toward educational sta tus many times. "We push those folks in economics. Folk who have the money, those are the people we want. “My motto is ‘little folk will make you big.’ Big folk are already where they want to be." Carlton, who began preach ing in 1975, served as assis tant pastor at Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church.
