The content of this blog presumes you are already familiar with Denver Snuffer's books. Careful explanations given in the books lay the foundation for what is contained here.

"Therefore, whoso heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock— And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock."
The "wise man" is the one who is saved.
The "house" is an eternal family, continuation of seed, or eternal life.
The "rock" is Christ.
The descending storm represents the waters of chaos that destroyed the lives of the rebellious at the time of Noah. The rain, winds, floods are descriptive of God's judgment of mankind at that moment. Any soul must build their character, the light they possess, and their choices on Christ to withstand the day of judgment. If they do not, they construct their life on the unstable sand of this broken world, and nothing will endure.
Stability into eternity is built upon Christ's teachings. He came to us to show by example and to teach by word the things which all who are saved must become.
Few are interested in becoming what He was.
This summation is brief, cutting to the heart of the matter. But it is powerful in its plain language.
Christ was the Master Teacher. He said, with great clarity, in a few direct words what He wanted us to understand.
If we fail to heed this warning, then our eternal weakness is because of our choice. If we heed it, then He has provided both the teaching and the example to let us follow.
It is interesting how history has been affected by Christ's teachings. Wars and empires have claimed Christ as their sponsor. He has been a shield for every excess and wickedness imagined by man.
These comments are not about how to build a country, empire or corporation. It is about how to build your life. You cannot control anything other than your choices. But you can choose to follow Him, build your life on the teachings we have been looking at in this sermon. If you do, you build upon the Rock of Heaven. (Moses 7: 53.)
