Pastor Randy Skeet is conducting a week of prayer at the Chula Vista SDA Church, California from 6/9/2012 to 6/16/2012. The theme of the week of prayer is “Its All Legal”. This is the fourth sermon given on Monday 6/11/2012 at 7 PM. The sermon is entitled “God’s Inner Circle”. “Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and (how) I bare you on eagle’s wings, and brought you unto myself” Exo. 19:4. “And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine” Lev. 20:26. “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and will love him, and will manifest myself to him” John 14:21. God’s inner circle is made up of those who keep His commandments. While on earth Jesus had an inner circle. Peter, James and John were in his inner circle. Jesus had a special affection for the family of Lazarus. “The Saviour blessed all who sought His help; He loves all the human family, but to some He is bound by peculiarly tender associations. His heart was knit by a strong bond of affection to the to the family of Bethany, and for one of them His most wonderful work was wrought” (DA 524.1). The concept that even in heaven there will be some people who will be closer to God than others is evident in the Spirit of Prophecy "Last Day Events" and "Heaven" by EGW. The 144,000 will be a special group and closer to God. There will be no jealousy. Our desire should be, “I want to be as close to Christ as possible”. “Jesus answered and said unto him, if a man love me, he will keep my words: and my father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him”. John 14:23. God’s inner circle is made up of those who keep His commandments.
