Straight Up Now Tell Me

Updated: May 14


Matt 11:1-6

1 Now it came to pass, when Jesus finished commanding His twelve disciples, that He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities.

2 And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples 3 and said to Him, "Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?"


John's having a bad day! He is in prison and looking for someone to rescue him and sends his disciples to ask the question, "Are you the one or do I look for another?"


Haggai 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.


The Lord is looking for the latter house, so the question is appropriate, "Are you the one or do I look for another?"


Rom 12:1-2

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


A sacrifice smells good to God when it is perfect (mature). A scent is a distinctive smell, especially one that is pleasant. Scent is powerful because it goes past the consciousness and goes straight to the brain.


God's favorite scent is KERUGMA. It means  – Proclamation, announce, preach of the gospel, witness. The maturity of your call is to be a scent one. Are you the one to be scent or do I look for another?


Let's discuss:

  1. Are you the latter house? How will you know?

  2. Smell has great potency. What do you smell?

  3. What scent are you giving off?

  4. Are you the one or do we look for another?

  1. Are you the latter house? How will you know?

Yes I am the latter house, because it has been a choice to submit my life unto Him. Just like Roman's said, "that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." How will I know if I am, people, not just me, will be able to see the fruit. I can see the difference when people are calling and asking questions like Nate said, or when it has been quite. If I am experience quite it is time to evaluate, am I focused on myself or desiring a life to be changed.

1.Are you the latter house? How will you know?

Yes! Our words, our actions, our lifestyle, etc... being a living sacrifice.... will be for the purpose of His harvest. What people see and hear will cause them to want to be in the house of God, a place where there is His peace. For Him to be glorified!


2.Smell has great potency. What do you smell?

I can smell the harvest! I hear the sound of the desire for change in their voices. I see hearts softening for His truth. I sense the longing for a Savior and Lord and Father. And a need to have a purpose. They are drawn to a place they can call home.

This is definitely the fresh word that I needed to hear!


1 yes I definitely want to be part of the latter house. I have will I know? It will be through my scent what I am presenting. It will demonstrate if I've been pursuing him! It'll be demonstrated with what is drawn towards it. My harvest!


2 I smell the Mystery of what is to come! A profound smell! I don't want to be that smell that you get so used to and then you don't recognize it anymore. So I definitely have been smelling I'm comfortable where I'm at I don't want to be pushed. And it brings you to the statement fly or die.

-Yes, I want to be the one---I choose to be the one. I will go beyond the limitations of...whatever excuse I may have or the doubt I have of me- because I trust Him, and I will be a witness that glorifies Him. I will smell like the Amazon rains 😉


Smell has great potency. What do you smell?

-Life. I've always thought of myself as a positive, happy, loving person. But in the time I have been here-God has shown me - me- and it wasn't exactly pretty😒 So He has been helping me strip away a Lot of self and in that dying-Life has bloomed... Like I don't know…

Yes, I've been here from my beginning I'm still here I have hope that Jesus is adding to the church daily such that should be saved through those that love him and love others.  


Smell has great potency.  What do you smell?

A shift in the winds that there is a people who despite the state of the nation want to find and follow God as their Lord and Savior.  


What scent are you giving off?

 Kerugma learned a new word. I hope people would smell a fresh scent from me.  That they would see and hear that it is good thing to serve the Lord.

Yes, You're the one!!! Yes, you are the latter house! You're still here so you will be part of the latter GLORY! But let's be real, you have to be here, you're the Pastor!!! 🤣🤣 All kidding aside, in all reality, no one has to be here. When we have days like John had that warranted his question, "are you the one or do we look for another?" it's an opportunity to look a little harder, dig a little deeper, something has filled in or someone has covered up our well.


Indeed, there is a scent of a shift in the winds! It is great for some and not so great for others. The same is true, there is a…
