Lyrics


Oft times the day seems long, our trials hard to bear,
We're tempted to complain, to murmur and despair;
But Christ will soon appear to catch His Bride away,
All tears forever over in God's eternal day. 

It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ. 


Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
We're tossed and driven on, no human help in sight;
But there is one in heaven who knows our deepest care,
Let Jesus solve your problem - just go to Him in prayer. 

It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ. 

Life's day will soon be over, all storms forever past,
We'll cross the great divide, to glory, safe at last;
We'll share the joys of heaven - a harp, a home, a crown,
The tempter will be banished, we'll lay our burden down. 

It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So [GLADLY] run the race till we see Christ.

GRACE is GOD's RACE to HEAVEN?

RUN GOD 's RACE [ GRACE ]
Because GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE!
[Book of Hebrews Chapter 12]
a)    Let us RUN the RACE. [verses 1-3]
b)   Forgotten the exhortation regarding Chastening of the Lord. [verses 4-11]
c)    How to RUN the RACE? [verses 12-17]
d)   Let us HAVE GRACE with Godly FEAR! [verses 18-28]
e)    For [Because] God is a CONSUMING FIRE! [concluding verse 29]
 
a)    Let us RUN the RACE. [verses 1-4]
1: "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us ,
2: Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3: For consider Him that endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.”
 
b)  Forgotten the Exhortation & Chastening of the Lord ? [verses 4-11]
4: “Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5: And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Him:
6: For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth.
7: If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8: But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
9: Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10: For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but He for our profit, that we might be partakers of His holiness.
11: Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which areexercised thereby.”
 
 
c)   How to RUN the RACE? [verses 12-17]
12: “Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
13: And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
14: Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord [no Rapture if without] :
15: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God ; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
16: Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
17: For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: forhe found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.”
 
d)   Let us HAVE GRACE with Godly FEAR! [verses 18-28]
18: “For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
19: And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
20: (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:
21: And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
22: But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23: To thegeneral assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24: And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
25: See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him that speaketh from heaven:
26: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27: And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28: Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace , whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear :”
 
e)   For [Because] God is a CONSUMING FIRE! [concluding verse 29]
29: “For our God is a consuming fire ."
 

 

EXHORTED TO RUN GOD’s RACE 
for 1 st PRIZE [ Rapture/Reward ]!?

1) RUN like there is only 1 PRIZE
[Rapture/Reward]?
1Corinthians:9:24-27: "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run , that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run , not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway[ from 1stRapture] ."
 
2) RUN with Great JOY! [Rapture/Reward]?
Matthew 28:8: "And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring His disciples word ."
 
3) OutRUN for 1st PRIZE [Rapture/Reward]?
John 20:4: "So they ran both together: and the other disciple did out run Peter, and came first to the sepulchre."
 
4) WITH GOD's GRACE WE WILL NOT RUN IN VAIN!
[Book of Philippians Chapter 2, verses 13-16]
"For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.  Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain , neither laboured in vain."

together with Christ, Workers received Grace of GOD not in vain.
2Corinthians:6:1: "We then, as workers together with Him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain."

 
5) RUN for hope of righteousness in the Liberty of Christ
and be not entangled by bondage of Law.
[Book of Galatians Chapter 5]:-
a)   Not preaching salvation by works of law. [verses 1-15]
b)  Not under the law of flesh! Be LED of the Spirit. [verses 16-24]
c)    Live in Spirit, let us walk or RUN in the Spirit! [verses 25,26]

a)   Not preaching salvation by works of law. [verses 1-15]
1: "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
2: Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
3: For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
4: Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
5: For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
6: For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
7: Ye did run [in faith which worketh by love] well ; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
8: This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
9: A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
10: I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.
11: And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.
12: I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
13: For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14: For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
15: But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.”
 
b)   Not under the law of flesh! Be LED of the Spirit . [verses 16-24]
16: “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17: For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18: But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19: Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20: Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21: Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23: Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24: And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
 
c)   Live in Spirit, let us walk or RUN in the Spirit! [last2 verses 25,26]
25: If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26: Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another."

2: That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.”
 
b)  Do Not RUN with them in the flesh. [verses 3-6]
3: “For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
4: Wherein they[Gentiles] think it strange that ye run not with them [Gentiles]   to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
5: Who shall give account to Him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
6: For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.”
 
c)   How to RUN in the Spirit? [verses 7-16]
7: “But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
8: And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
9: Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
10: As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11: If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorifiedthrough Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
12: Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
14: If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part He is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified.
15: But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
16: Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.”
 
d)   Commit the keeping of your souls to Faithful God! [last verses 17-19]
17: “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us , what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18: And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19: Wherefore let them thatsuffer according to the will of Godcommit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator."
 

CONCLUSION: GROW IN GRACE ! 
By RUNNING GOD's RACE!

2Peter 3:13-18: "Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
14: Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligentthat ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15: And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
16: As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17: Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18: But grow in grace , and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ .
To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen."

Race is not to the swift...
answer in Ecclesiastes 12:13,14

"I returned, and saw under the sun,
that the race is not to the swift,
nor the battle to the strong,
neither yet bread to the wise,
nor yet riches to men of understanding,
nor yet favour to men of skill;
but time and chance happeneth to them all."
Ecclesiastes 9:11

"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God, and keep His commandments:
for this is the whole duty of man
[woman inclusive].
For God shall bring every work into judgement,
with every secret thing,
whether it be good,
or whether it be evil."
Ecclesiastes 12:13.14
