He’ll Take What’s Left Of You

Amos 3:12 Thus saith the LORD; As the shepherd taketh out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear; …

Amos – Two legs, A piece of an ear. Sometimes we don’t give the shepherd much to work with,

  • It Sounds Like A Description Of  A Basket Case.  How Easily We Make Messes In Our Lives And Feel Hopeless.

    • Backsliders
    • Sinners
    • Wayward Children

But There Is Still Hope! Remember, There Is No Such Thing As A Throw Away Soul.

Just Because You had a problem, doesn’t mean your life is over!

God to Israel: “I loved you when no one else did.”

  • Ezek. 16:4 And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.
  • Ezek. 16:5 None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.
  • Ezek. 16:6 And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

God Can Still Make A World Out Of Nothing

  • 1Cor. 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
  • 1Cor. 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
  • 1Cor. 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
  • 1Cor. 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
  • 1Cor. 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
  • 1Cor. 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

When He takes what’s left of you, He will…

Forgive You
Wash You
Deliver You
Redeem You
Fill You
Transform You
Anoint You
Bless You
Use You

  2. I read the Home Missions Chronicles and wept. Home Mission folks are the unsung heros of the Pentecostal movement. Thanks.

  3. Thank you so much for your wonderful expounding of the Scripture. I have begun looking forward to reading your messages each day I find them. Please don’t visit our church in Dearborn Hights on Bible Study night. You might be hearing something “like’ these. I don’t know you Bro Ballestero but I have fallen in love with your spirit. Keep writing I am sure there are many peopolle who do not respond to your words but read them just the same. Yours in the Gospel. Bro Tom Anderson

  6. I remember so well a message Bro. Adkison preached using this scripture, “Not Enough Left To Make A Saint” and the alters filled up with people praying. Everytime I hear or read this verse I always think of him. What a man he was!!

    Love and appreciate you and Sis. Ballerstero. What a blessing you were at Cornerstone Apostolic of FW.
