One Question

The “One Thing” Sermons
Sermon 1 – “One question”
By G-d’s servant, M-S E.S.

It is amazing how many lessons we can learn from the phrase “one thing”.

“One thing” occurs 12 times in the King James Version of the New Testament.

Let us look at one such text.

And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you ONE THING, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things. (Matthew 21:24)

JESUS asked those who questioned his authority “ONE THING”! He could have reeled off a list of accusations to the leaders, but he decided to only ask one question.

JESUS gave as the response to questions about his deeds a question. That one question silenced his opposition.

How do we in the face of false accusations, attempt to defend ourselves? Are our words few and our doings many? Is the evidence of what we do so great that we have very little to say? When people come to us with railing accusations, can we just answer them with one sentence that silences them.

One sentence is all that is needed to silence evil. Only one sentence is needed to confound those who oppose the gospel and the work that you do. Sometimes, that one thing or sentence is a question. When people question your motives or your actions, or even your mission, today, respond with one question.

Jesus’ one question challenged the opposition to examine their fears and loyalties. So too, let your response be one that challenge people to examine who they serve.
Today, let your response be one sentence that causes others to think about their soul’s condition and where they will stand on the brink of eternity.

It is important that you being spiritual control your tongue and work on your speech.

James 1:26:
“ If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.”

“ Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.” Colossians 4:6

Remember that speech that is excellent is absent from a fool.
“Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.”(Proverbs 17:7)

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
James 1:5

James 1:19:
“ Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath”

Today, listen to what someone who accuses you is saying, and then reply with one question that requests the accuser to examine the motive of their accusation.

Remember that the Holy Spirit is on earth, working to persuade mankind.

John 16:8 : “And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:”

The Holy Spirit will help you.

Proverbs 16:1: The PREPARATIONS OF THE HEART in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.

The Holy Spirit will help you to know what to say. He will also work on your adversaries heart through you and your words.

So get your accuser to think about the objectives of their accusations or speech by asking them a question. A question that will force them to re-examine their motives for their speech.

If you are a leader, when your employees or followers criticize your action or express a criticism, get them to think about why they are being critical. Some times
a question is your most powerful tool to effect change and get the desired results that you seek.

It is the heart that teaches the mouth. Attitudes always affect speech. That is why Jesus said in Matthew 12:34:

O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART the mouth speaketh.

The need for a Christian Museum

I am very supportive of the Memory of the World UNESCO programme, which is aimed at preserving "valuable archive holdings and library collections worldwide" ( This is another step at cultural preservation, which is very valuable in my perspective. I believe that the way of life and perspectives of ancient people should be documented for future generations to understand the past and where humanity and civilization is coming from. I admire for example, Judaism, which has preserved most of its traditions from centuries ago. Unlike Christianity, where our traditions have become so modified from the original traditions of the first apostles, Judaism can at any time return to the practice of what their ancestors practiced and believed, because these traditions are well documented and detailed.

For Christianity, the same cannot be said. Today’s Christian traditions are so far removed from those practiced by early Christians, and centuries of persons disputing the faith have changed what is practiced and believed, that what is handed down today that passes for Christianity is very distorted.

Today, if we had cultural preservation, today's Christian adherents would realise that their forerunners in the faith kept the sabbaths and operated differently from our formal and institutionalized way of operating today.

I must add that Satan has tried to derail Christianity from its inception.

Jude 1:3 (KJV) says
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

This indicates that there were detractors who wanted to confuse and distort what Christians believed. In these last days however, G-d is about to unleash the prophetic spirit - and more understanding of the Scriptures so that we can return to our spiritual roots. As Daniel 12:4 says:

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

May G-d reveal and enlighten our pastors and spiritual leaders today that they may behold the stone from which we were hewn. May G-d reconcile the children to the Fathers, and avert the curse from being stricken on the earth (as stated in Malachi 4:5-6 (King James Version)).

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

If I could establish a virtual Christian museum to facilitate this process of restoration.

Wrecking the national dollar

I am now more convinced than ever that there is a global elite that is orchestrating the current global financial meltdown in order to advance the new global economic, political, social and religious order.

Jamaica is about to produce and issue a $5000 note. A Jamaica Observer article entitled "BOJ to issue $5,000 bank note" reports that the governor of the Bank of Jamaica will "officially launch the new bank note on Monday at the central bank in downtown Kingston". This is just the beginning of sorrows. This move means that our dollar is losing its value. I am not an economic expert. However, the article in the Jamaica Gleaner, entitled "Jamaica Welcomes the Shearer", in support of my perspective states that:

Normally, central banks feel compelled to issue higher value notes when their economies are wracked by inflation and it requires more and more to make purchases.

However, the article goes on to state that this is not the case (really now! could have fooled me!). It goes to report that the dollar is being pushed as a means of celebrating the former politician and foreign affairs minister.

In addition, the newspaper's article title is so misleading. The article title states "Jamaica welcomes" the new dollar. Far be it from us. Everywhere I hear Jamaicans talking with worry over this new currency. We know as Jamaicans that this new dollar does not signal any good news. We know that what is coming is the devaluation of our dollar.

I recently read a new report on the Council of Foreign Relations website, which highlights what I believe is going to happen to Jamaica. According to the author, Steil, it is recommended that for small national states to survive the global financial crisis, they need to give up their sovereign dollar and substitute it with a universal currency - US or Euro. In Steil's own words:

"[One] option is for countries, particularly smaller ones, to self-insure against currency crises by replacing their national currencies with one of the two globally accepted means of international payment, the dollar or the euro. ...Countries that are dollarized...and euroized have in the current crisis been spared the devastation of mass capital flight. Countries on the periphery of the eurozone...have suffered far more from the global financial upheaval than their euroized neighbors."

This is what the global elite wants to see; all nations giving up their sovereignty so that they can have their global order established. I am quite certain that our global financial crisis is artificial - created by the secret ruling elite, who wants to force nations to give up their sovereignty. Jamaica is heading towards economic bankruptcy, to be bailed out only if it joins this new global order.

If the picture of the person on the new Jamaican $5000 dollar is any clue. According to a biographic search I did on "Shearer, Hugh" on the National Library of Jamaica's Website, Shearer was an advocate of Jamaica being involved in a universal and international political and social union. The article states:

On the international scene, Mr. Shearer in 1963 initiated the movement in the United Nations for declaring 1968 as “The International Year of Human Rights” celebrated worldwide.

Hold fast brethren, til Messiah comes! Do not love wealth, but recognise that you survival does not depend on the money you own or that is in the bank or even in your insurance schemes. Your survival depends on the Word of G-d.

The dilemma of being unaffiliated

I read the following article, and it came at a time when I am spiritually hurting.

The need for truth in me and my need to be a part of a spiritual organization that has that same desire for truth and to be liberated from man's dogma and move into what G-d wants for them is unfulfilled.

All denominations that I know and have been in lack my specific beliefs. My wife has basically given up the search with me and has settled for what she is already used to. With that, she has thrown away all the truths that we have discovered. They are encumbering and prevents one from being at ease in contemporary Christian community.

Today I went to witness in Half-Way-Tree (HWT) and felt that my efforts were in vain. I was convicted that the person doing evangelism must be sent by an organization or a formal body, or G-d himself.

Secondly, I realise that one must be anointed to get people to follow what ever you teach, preach or say. All the truths known require a spirit behind you that will resonate well with your hearers.

On top of that, at Andrews SDA, G-d pointed out to me 1 Samuel 3:7. In essence, G-d showed me that many were like Samuel, ministering before the L-RD, doing ministry, yet failing to know him, for whom they ministered.

The Time of the Gentiles
