Welcome to The Cyber Church of Eufaula, Oklahoma Pastor, James West  -|- This Sermon Published July, 1998 


I'm getting ready to leave this world!



John 12:20-21
And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, SIR, WE WOULD SEE JESUS.

What a wonderful thing it is to want to see Jesus!

* Abraham LONGED for the day he would see Messiah!

* Isaac and Jacob waited for His coming!

* Isaiah prophesied in great detail of His coming!

* Elijah walked in His Power and wanted to see Him!

* David made over 3000 musical instruments and wrote hundreds of songs just to Praise Him! He said, "Unto THEE O Lord, do I lift up mine eyes . . . Unto THEE O Lord, do I lift my soul!" David wanted to see Him!

And we Christians all have that desire to see HIM!

Around Nineteen hundred and forty-eight, at a little Pentecostal Church in Greenville, Mississippi, an Evangelist preached about the Rapture. He said that it was coming VERY SOON! He said that Jesus would take His people out of this world. That was the night I began MY watching and waiting!

The Lord told His Church:

Matthew 24:44
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

And Jesus assured us that He WILL be back. He said,

John 14:1-3
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I AM, [there] ye may be also.

Genesis 17:1
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I AM the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

The "I AM: the Almighty God" is the El Shadday {shad-dah'-ee}

And it means Almighty, Most Powerful, The Almighty (of God)

We sing it "Lord God Almighty!" - The Omnipotent, un-failing, Almighty God of the Old Testament is The Great High Priest of the book of Hebrews, The Lamb of God of John and the Lion of the Tribe of Judah in Revelation 5:5 !

Revelation 5:5
And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Mark 14:62

And Jesus said, "I AM and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven."

And Jesus said, "I AM: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power,"

And Jesus said, "I AM: and ye shall see the Son of man"

And Jesus said, "I AM: and ye shall SEE!"

And Jesus said, "I AM:" !

Someday soon, when we least expect it: when the Father decides: when world gets wicked enough: when the prophecies are fulfilled,

A Church in one accord, one mind! He's coming back for a Church that's WATCHING for Him! So, I'm watching for Him! Are YOU? We need to "Look up, for our Redemption draweth nigh!"

We sing the song, "I'm getting ready to leave this world." and some of us may need a little more "Getting Ready!"

Jesus said that satan came to Him and "Found Nothing in Him." There was nothing in Jesus that belonged to satan!

And I beg you today. Don't leave this page if there's anything in YOU that belongs to satan! That belongs to the prince of this world! Don't leave this page until it's burned out! Burned out by the Holy Ghost Power! Burned out by the BLOOD OF CHRIST!

So that you can KNOW that when the prince of this world comes to look you over, to accuse, to kill you, to destroy you, that he will find NOTHING there that belongs to him! I beg you, accept Jesus as your personal Savior today. Right now!
