  • He didn't leave us
  • 00:00:01.260 --> 00:00:02.290
  • just redeemed from.
  • 00:00:02.290 --> 00:00:04.210
  • He didn't just open the prison
  • 00:00:04.210 --> 00:00:05.240
  • door and say, "You're redeemed."
  • 00:00:05.240 --> 00:00:07.270
  • He redeemed us from something,
  • 00:00:07.270 --> 00:00:09.130
  • but then to something, to life.
  • 00:00:10.190 --> 00:00:13.190
  • We're getting stirred up
  • 00:00:13.190 --> 00:00:14.130
  • about life.
  • 00:00:14.130 --> 00:00:15.030
  • He redeemed us from death
  • 00:00:15.030 --> 00:00:17.060

  • - Beth: Welcome to "The Basics
  • 00:00:48.150 --> 00:00:49.080
  • with Beth" TV.
  • 00:00:49.080 --> 00:00:51.020
  • I'm so glad you joined me today
  • 00:00:51.020 --> 00:00:52.000
  • for today's episode.
  • 00:00:52.000 --> 00:00:53.290
  • We are starting a brand-new
  • 00:00:53.290 --> 00:00:55.210
  • series called "Stirred, Not
  • 00:00:55.210 --> 00:00:57.250
  • Shaken," and I'm so excited
  • 00:00:57.250 --> 00:00:59.210
  • about this, 'cause we're gonna
  • 00:00:59.210 --> 00:01:00.220
  • get stirred up in the basics,
  • 00:01:00.220 --> 00:01:03.050
  • because that's what we do here.
  • 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:04.210
  • We get you stirred up in the
  • 00:01:04.210 --> 00:01:05.120
  • basics, and you might remember
  • 00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:06.230
  • this phrase: stirred, not
  • 00:01:06.230 --> 00:01:08.260
  • shaken.
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:09.170
  • The flipside of it: shaken, not
  • 00:01:09.170 --> 00:01:11.080
  • stirred.
  • 00:01:11.080 --> 00:01:12.040
  • Thank you James Bond.
  • 00:01:12.040 --> 00:01:13.180
  • He was talking about a martini,
  • 00:01:13.180 --> 00:01:15.070
  • but we're not talking about
  • 00:01:15.070 --> 00:01:17.080
  • martinis.
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:17.280
  • We're talking about the Bible,
  • 00:01:17.280 --> 00:01:19.290
  • getting stirred up in the basics
  • 00:01:19.290 --> 00:01:21.150
  • of our faith.
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:22.240
  • So, today, we're gonna talk
  • 00:01:22.240 --> 00:01:24.070
  • about the framework and how it
  • 00:01:24.070 --> 00:01:26.010
  • is we get ourselves stirred up
  • 00:01:26.010 --> 00:01:27.130
  • in these basic things in the
  • 00:01:27.130 --> 00:01:28.210
  • Bible, like the two words that
  • 00:01:28.210 --> 00:01:30.150
  • unlock the Bible: life and
  • 00:01:30.150 --> 00:01:33.000
  • death.
  • 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:34.170
  • We're gonna find out what does
  • 00:01:34.170 --> 00:01:35.050
  • the Bible say and what was God's
  • 00:01:35.050 --> 00:01:36.180
  • intention from the beginning for
  • 00:01:36.180 --> 00:01:38.210
  • us to living life and life more
  • 00:01:38.210 --> 00:01:40.230
  • abundantly, the quantitative and
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:42.110
  • qualitative life that Jesus
  • 00:01:42.110 --> 00:01:45.020
  • came to bring.
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:45.220
  • So go with me into
  • 00:01:45.220 --> 00:01:47.280
  • "Stirred, Not Shaken."
  • 00:01:47.280 --> 00:01:49.160
  • We're getting stirred
  • 00:01:49.160 --> 00:01:50.090
  • up today in life.
  • 00:01:50.090 --> 00:01:52.210
  • - Beth: Good morning,
  • 00:01:52.210 --> 00:01:53.160
  • everybody.
  • 00:01:53.160 --> 00:01:54.060
  • Today, we're gonna talk about
  • 00:01:54.060 --> 00:01:55.210
  • getting stirred up in life, and
  • 00:01:55.210 --> 00:01:57.230
  • we're gonna end up talking about
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:01:59.030
  • two things we believe the Lord
  • 00:01:59.030 --> 00:02:00.240
  • wants us to do to activate this
  • 00:02:00.240 --> 00:02:03.200
  • life that he so freely gave us.
  • 00:02:03.200 --> 00:02:05.080
  • And that is, number one, enjoy
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:06.240
  • your life in Christ.
  • 00:02:06.240 --> 00:02:09.090
  • Number two, live your life for
  • 00:02:10.010 --> 00:02:13.010
  • Christ.
  • 00:02:13.010 --> 00:02:13.210
  • Both of those components, both
  • 00:02:13.210 --> 00:02:16.040
  • of those pieces, go together.
  • 00:02:16.040 --> 00:02:17.180
  • All right, so talking about
  • 00:02:17.180 --> 00:02:18.230
  • getting stirred up in life,
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:20.210
  • let's start with a very familiar
  • 00:02:20.210 --> 00:02:22.100
  • passage of Scripture,
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:23.060
  • John 10:10.
  • 00:02:23.060 --> 00:02:24.260
  • Get your bibles.
  • 00:02:24.260 --> 00:02:25.160
  • Go and turn to John 10:10.
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:29.000
  • Jesus said these words.
  • 00:02:29.000 --> 00:02:30.050
  • He said, "The thief comes only
  • 00:02:30.050 --> 00:02:32.150
  • in order to steal and kill and
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:34.290
  • destroy, but I have come that
  • 00:02:34.290 --> 00:02:37.130
  • they may have and enjoy life,
  • 00:02:37.210 --> 00:02:40.210
  • and have it in abundance (to the
  • 00:02:40.210 --> 00:02:42.160
  • full and till it overflows)."
  • 00:02:42.160 --> 00:02:45.060
  • So this is from the Amplified
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:46.090
  • Bible.
  • 00:02:46.090 --> 00:02:46.290
  • Jesus said these words.
  • 00:02:46.290 --> 00:02:48.010
  • "Jesus, why did you come, you
  • 00:02:48.010 --> 00:02:50.140
  • know?"
  • 00:02:50.140 --> 00:02:51.040
  • There's a lot of religions on
  • 00:02:51.040 --> 00:02:51.240
  • the earth, there's a lot of
  • 00:02:51.240 --> 00:02:53.060
  • things people can think about
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:54.080
  • when it comes to God, but, "Why
  • 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:56.090
  • did you come?"
  • 00:02:56.090 --> 00:02:57.020
  • Jesus said, "I have come, the
  • 00:02:57.020 --> 00:02:59.000
  • reason I came, the reason I came
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:02.010
  • to the earth, yes, it was to be
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:03.030
  • an example.
  • 00:03:03.030 --> 00:03:03.240
  • Yes, it was to walk on water.
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:05.000
  • Yes, it was to multiply loaves
  • 00:03:05.000 --> 00:03:06.110
  • and fish.
  • 00:03:06.110 --> 00:03:07.010
  • Yes, it was to pick 12
  • 00:03:07.010 --> 00:03:08.000
  • disciples.
  • 00:03:08.000 --> 00:03:08.200
  • Yes, it was to do all of that.
  • 00:03:08.200 --> 00:03:11.020
  • Yes, ultimately, it was to go to
  • 00:03:11.020 --> 00:03:12.190
  • the cross, shed my blood, be
  • 00:03:12.190 --> 00:03:15.020
  • raised from the dead by God
  • 00:03:15.020 --> 00:03:16.220
  • on the third day,
  • 00:03:16.220 --> 00:03:17.150
  • but it was for this purpose."
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:19.030
  • "What was the purpose?
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:20.040
  • Why did you come?"
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:21.050
  • "I have come that you might have
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:23.240
  • life, that you might have life,
  • 00:03:25.210 --> 00:03:28.210
  • and that you might have it to
  • 00:03:28.210 --> 00:03:30.170
  • the full and till it overflows,
  • 00:03:30.170 --> 00:03:32.180
  • abundant life."
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:36.090
  • So the question is what
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:37.260
  • does that look like?
  • 00:03:37.260 --> 00:03:39.070
  • Because often, when we talk
  • 00:03:39.070 --> 00:03:40.140
  • about this, we think of it in
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:42.030
  • terms of eternal life, like
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:45.230
  • the life we're gonna have
  • 00:03:45.230 --> 00:03:47.000
  • after we die,
  • 00:03:47.000 --> 00:03:48.210
  • after we leave planet Earth.
  • 00:03:48.210 --> 00:03:50.080
  • Oh, yeah, it's gonna be awesome
  • 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:51.050
  • when we get to heaven.
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:51.280
  • Streets are paved with gold,
  • 00:03:51.280 --> 00:03:53.050
  • mansions, get to be with Jesus
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:55.060
  • all the time.
  • 00:03:55.060 --> 00:03:56.080
  • Who thinks eternity is gonna be
  • 00:03:56.080 --> 00:03:57.120
  • a great place to be?
  • 00:03:57.120 --> 00:03:59.010
  • Heaven is gonna be an awesome
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.100
  • place for sure, but while we're
  • 00:04:00.260 --> 00:04:03.260
  • on this side of eternity, God
  • 00:04:03.260 --> 00:04:06.050
  • has life for us to experience.
  • 00:04:06.050 --> 00:04:08.100
  • If you've got your Bibles, go
  • 00:04:08.100 --> 00:04:09.050
  • ahead turn over to 1 John.
  • 00:04:09.050 --> 00:04:11.240
  • Let's look at a couple of verses
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:13.260
  • just to set this up.
  • 00:04:13.260 --> 00:04:15.100
  • 1 John 5, verse 11, "And this is
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:17.160
  • the testimony: God has given us
  • 00:04:17.160 --> 00:04:20.160
  • eternal life," already given us
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:22.020
  • eternal life, "and this life is
  • 00:04:22.020 --> 00:04:24.260
  • in his Son.
  • 00:04:24.260 --> 00:04:26.220
  • He who has the Son has life; he
  • 00:04:26.220 --> 00:04:29.200
  • who does not have the Son of God
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:31.060
  • does not have life.
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:32.290
  • These things I have written to
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:34.030
  • you who believe in the name of
  • 00:04:34.030 --> 00:04:35.080
  • the Son of God, that you may
  • 00:04:35.080 --> 00:04:36.190
  • know you have eternal life, and
  • 00:04:37.060 --> 00:04:40.060
  • that you may continue to believe
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:41.210
  • in the name of the Son of God."
  • 00:04:41.210 --> 00:04:44.080
  • Okay, so let's talk about this
  • 00:04:44.080 --> 00:04:45.080
  • just for a little bit.
  • 00:04:45.080 --> 00:04:45.280
  • We're talking about life.
  • 00:04:45.280 --> 00:04:46.240
  • Jesus says, "I've come that
  • 00:04:46.240 --> 00:04:47.270
  • you'd have life."
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:49.030
  • Then we find out in 1 John,
  • 00:04:49.030 --> 00:04:50.260
  • he who has the Son
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:52.050
  • has the life, and I've
  • 00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:54.000
  • written to you these things so
  • 00:04:54.000 --> 00:04:54.240
  • you can know you have the life.
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:57.250
  • So what about that?
  • 00:04:57.250 --> 00:04:59.090
  • Well, this life that we're
  • 00:04:59.090 --> 00:05:01.110
  • talking about is both
  • 00:05:01.110 --> 00:05:02.150
  • quantitative and qualitative,
  • 00:05:02.200 --> 00:05:05.200
  • two facets.
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:06.120
  • The quantitative piece is what
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:08.100
  • we normally think of when we
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:09.270
  • think about eternal life.
  • 00:05:09.270 --> 00:05:10.260
  • We normally think of, like I
  • 00:05:10.260 --> 00:05:12.000
  • said, this timeframe from the
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:14.020
  • moment I die physically, leave
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:17.040
  • my body on Earth and die and go
  • 00:05:17.040 --> 00:05:19.180
  • somewhere for eternity.
  • 00:05:19.180 --> 00:05:22.040
  • And he who has the Son has
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:25.100
  • eternal life.
  • 00:05:25.100 --> 00:05:26.250
  • That's a guarantee.
  • 00:05:26.250 --> 00:05:27.150
  • You can know that for sure.
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:28.270
  • Who remembers a time when you
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:29.290
  • didn't know that?
  • 00:05:29.290 --> 00:05:31.060
  • Maybe there was a season
  • 00:05:31.060 --> 00:05:32.020
  • in your life you were like,
  • 00:05:32.020 --> 00:05:32.220
  • "I don't know for sure where
  • 00:05:32.220 --> 00:05:33.190
  • I'm going when I die.
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:34.130
  • I don't know."
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:36.020
  • Jesus wants you to know.
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:38.100
  • He's given us his Word so we
  • 00:05:38.100 --> 00:05:39.180
  • could know with 100% certainty
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:41.160
  • that if Jesus Christ is the Lord
  • 00:05:41.160 --> 00:05:43.100
  • of your life, you can know you
  • 00:05:43.100 --> 00:05:45.190
  • have eternal life, so praise the
  • 00:05:45.220 --> 00:05:48.220
  • Lord.
  • 00:05:48.220 --> 00:05:49.120
  • We know for sure where we're
  • 00:05:49.120 --> 00:05:50.020
  • going after we die.
  • 00:05:50.020 --> 00:05:51.110
  • This is the quantitative piece,
  • 00:05:51.110 --> 00:05:53.020
  • and this is mainly what we focus
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:55.070
  • on, which is okay in a sense.
  • 00:05:55.070 --> 00:05:56.160
  • However, there is this whole
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:05:58.060
  • qualitative piece.
  • 00:05:58.060 --> 00:05:59.220
  • What about from the moment you
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:01.040
  • accept Jesus as Lord?
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:03.160
  • Because, apparently, when you
  • 00:06:03.160 --> 00:06:04.190
  • accept Jesus as Lord, you
  • 00:06:04.190 --> 00:06:06.020
  • receive at that moment eternal
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:08.120
  • life.
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:09.020
  • You're not going to get eternal
  • 00:06:09.020 --> 00:06:10.060
  • life.
  • 00:06:10.060 --> 00:06:10.260
  • You have eternal life.
  • 00:06:10.260 --> 00:06:11.210
  • You already have it now.
  • 00:06:11.210 --> 00:06:14.060
  • He who has the Son has the life.
  • 00:06:14.160 --> 00:06:17.160
  • You already have it.
  • 00:06:17.160 --> 00:06:19.090
  • You already have eternal life.
  • 00:06:19.090 --> 00:06:20.110
  • From the moment Jesus becomes
  • 00:06:20.110 --> 00:06:21.240
  • the Lord of your life, God gives
  • 00:06:21.240 --> 00:06:23.040
  • you life.
  • 00:06:23.040 --> 00:06:23.240
  • There's an impartation of life,
  • 00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:26.090
  • eternal life, the qualitative
  • 00:06:26.090 --> 00:06:28.140
  • part of it that we're to
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:30.010
  • experience.
  • 00:06:30.010 --> 00:06:30.250
  • From the moment Jesus becomes
  • 00:06:30.250 --> 00:06:32.070
  • the Lord of our lives until this
  • 00:06:32.070 --> 00:06:33.230
  • moment we step over into
  • 00:06:33.230 --> 00:06:35.200
  • eternity, this part of our life
  • 00:06:35.200 --> 00:06:37.180
  • is the qualitative.
  • 00:06:37.180 --> 00:06:39.120
  • We step over into eternity, this
  • 00:06:39.120 --> 00:06:41.010
  • is the quantitative.
  • 00:06:41.010 --> 00:06:43.170
  • Let's not miss the experience of
  • 00:06:43.170 --> 00:06:45.250
  • both.
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:46.150
  • I feel like I'm flying.
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:47.140
  • I'm a butterfly.
  • 00:06:48.220 --> 00:06:51.220
  • The qualitative and the
  • 00:06:51.220 --> 00:06:53.070
  • quantitative parts of this.
  • 00:06:53.070 --> 00:06:54.180
  • Now for our purposes today,
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:55.280
  • we're gonna focus mainly on this
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:57.080
  • qualitative piece, this segment,
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:06:59.170
  • because many times we've
  • 00:06:59.170 --> 00:07:00.210
  • neglected this one.
  • 00:07:00.210 --> 00:07:01.290
  • We're all thankful and know that
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:03.090
  • this is coming, yay, but what
  • 00:07:03.090 --> 00:07:05.170
  • about this section?
  • 00:07:05.170 --> 00:07:06.190
  • What is it the Lord wants us to
  • 00:07:06.190 --> 00:07:07.220
  • do as it relates to life in this
  • 00:07:07.220 --> 00:07:10.190
  • part of our being, our
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:11.180
  • existence?
  • 00:07:11.180 --> 00:07:12.130
  • He wants us to enjoy our life in
  • 00:07:12.130 --> 00:07:14.270
  • Christ and to live our lives for
  • 00:07:14.280 --> 00:07:17.280
  • Christ.
  • 00:07:17.280 --> 00:07:19.090
  • So with that mindset, if you've
  • 00:07:19.090 --> 00:07:21.080
  • got your Bibles, go ahead and go
  • 00:07:21.080 --> 00:07:22.180
  • back to Genesis.
  • 00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:23.080
  • We're just gonna take a couple
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:24.050
  • of minutes, and we're gonna take
  • 00:07:24.050 --> 00:07:25.250
  • some time to build a foundation,
  • 00:07:25.250 --> 00:07:28.190
  • to remind ourselves of a
  • 00:07:28.190 --> 00:07:30.120
  • framework, of the rules of
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:32.200
  • engagement, of spiritual laws
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.140
  • that are in operation, if you
  • 00:07:34.140 --> 00:07:35.210
  • will.
  • 00:07:35.210 --> 00:07:36.110
  • Things that sometimes if you
  • 00:07:36.110 --> 00:07:37.160
  • don't know the framework, or if
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:39.160
  • you don't know the box top,
  • 00:07:39.160 --> 00:07:41.250
  • sometimes I like to say, to the
  • 00:07:41.250 --> 00:07:43.070
  • jigsaw puzzle, if you don't know
  • 00:07:43.070 --> 00:07:44.170
  • what the box top looks like,
  • 00:07:44.170 --> 00:07:46.130
  • then what could happen in our
  • 00:07:46.130 --> 00:07:47.070
  • Christian lives is we can just
  • 00:07:47.070 --> 00:07:48.260
  • have pieces to the puzzle: the
  • 00:07:48.260 --> 00:07:50.170
  • corner piece, a couple of side
  • 00:07:50.170 --> 00:07:51.270
  • pieces, some middle pieces.
  • 00:07:51.270 --> 00:07:53.110
  • But if we don't know what the
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:54.100
  • box top looks like, if we don't
  • 00:07:54.100 --> 00:07:56.190
  • really know, like, "Okay, Jesus,
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:57.290
  • so what about why you came, what
  • 00:07:58.000 --> 00:08:01.020
  • about your death on the cross,
  • 00:08:01.020 --> 00:08:02.120
  • what about these redemptive
  • 00:08:02.120 --> 00:08:04.070
  • realities I'm getting stirred up
  • 00:08:04.070 --> 00:08:05.250
  • in, what about all that?
  • 00:08:05.250 --> 00:08:07.020
  • Because it doesn't--the dots
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:08.220
  • aren't connecting.
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:09.160
  • It doesn't all make sense to me.
  • 00:08:09.160 --> 00:08:11.250
  • I don't see the framework.
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:14.120
  • I don't see the foundation.
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:15.180
  • I don't see the box top."
  • 00:08:15.180 --> 00:08:17.230
  • And if we don't see that, then
  • 00:08:17.230 --> 00:08:19.110
  • it's just shaking of the dice.
  • 00:08:19.110 --> 00:08:20.140
  • Oftentimes, our Christian life
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:21.210
  • is just a shake of the dice.
  • 00:08:21.210 --> 00:08:23.120
  • "Well, I'm gonna pray,
  • 00:08:23.120 --> 00:08:24.040
  • and I hope God hears me."
  • 00:08:24.040 --> 00:08:25.230
  • "Well, I'm gonna try
  • 00:08:25.230 --> 00:08:26.130
  • to be a good person.
  • 00:08:26.130 --> 00:08:27.040
  • I hope that does something."
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:28.130
  • "Well, I'm gonna serve
  • 00:08:28.130 --> 00:08:29.040
  • at church.
  • 00:08:29.040 --> 00:08:29.240
  • Maybe I'll get some extra
  • 00:08:29.240 --> 00:08:30.140
  • credit in heaven."
  • 00:08:30.140 --> 00:08:32.020
  • "Well, I don't know, I mean,
  • 00:08:32.020 --> 00:08:32.250
  • just you just never know.
  • 00:08:32.250 --> 00:08:34.110
  • God's ways are higher than our
  • 00:08:34.110 --> 00:08:35.200
  • ways, and we just can't figure
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:37.140
  • things out.
  • 00:08:37.140 --> 00:08:38.040
  • We just don't know the things
  • 00:08:38.040 --> 00:08:39.200
  • that God needs us to know."
  • 00:08:39.200 --> 00:08:40.210
  • And so, often it's not because
  • 00:08:40.210 --> 00:08:42.250
  • God doesn't want us to know it,
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:44.040
  • and it's not because
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:44.260
  • God hasn't revealed it.
  • 00:08:44.260 --> 00:08:47.010
  • It's because we just
  • 00:08:47.010 --> 00:08:48.030
  • don't have the framework.
  • 00:08:48.030 --> 00:08:49.170
  • In fact, in the Bible,
  • 00:08:49.170 --> 00:08:50.260
  • it tells us this.
  • 00:08:50.260 --> 00:08:51.160
  • It says God said this
  • 00:08:51.160 --> 00:08:52.170
  • about his people.
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:53.070
  • He said, "My people perish
  • 00:08:53.070 --> 00:08:55.120
  • for lack of knowledge."
  • 00:08:55.120 --> 00:08:57.190
  • What is it that
  • 00:08:57.190 --> 00:08:58.090
  • causes people to struggle?
  • 00:08:58.090 --> 00:08:59.130
  • And maybe you've lived
  • 00:08:59.130 --> 00:09:00.080
  • the life I have.
  • 00:09:00.080 --> 00:09:01.020
  • I know I've lived what we call
  • 00:09:01.020 --> 00:09:03.060
  • the rollercoaster Christian
  • 00:09:03.060 --> 00:09:04.130
  • life.
  • 00:09:04.130 --> 00:09:06.080
  • I've lived--in seasons of my
  • 00:09:06.080 --> 00:09:07.190
  • life, I've lived the defeated,
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:09.210
  • rollercoaster Christian life,
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:11.080
  • and it wasn't because it was
  • 00:09:11.080 --> 00:09:12.240
  • God's will.
  • 00:09:12.240 --> 00:09:13.160
  • It was only because I just had
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:15.240
  • a few pieces to the puzzle and
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:17.000
  • the dots weren't connected,
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:18.060
  • and just like the Bible says,
  • 00:09:18.060 --> 00:09:19.250
  • "My people perish.
  • 00:09:19.250 --> 00:09:21.190
  • They struggle, they suffer
  • 00:09:21.190 --> 00:09:22.220
  • needlessly because they lack
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:24.240
  • knowledge.
  • 00:09:24.240 --> 00:09:25.150
  • My people perish for
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:26.170
  • a lack of knowledge."
  • 00:09:26.170 --> 00:09:28.090
  • If you don't know
  • 00:09:28.090 --> 00:09:29.010
  • what you don't know, you don't
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:30.190
  • know it, and therefore
  • 00:09:30.190 --> 00:09:32.210
  • you can't access it.
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:34.060
  • So what we're doing is we're
  • 00:09:34.060 --> 00:09:35.020
  • just taking some time to build
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:36.260
  • the foundation, to look at this
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:37.290
  • framework, so that we can know
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:39.060
  • what does the box top look like,
  • 00:09:39.060 --> 00:09:40.170
  • and how do the pieces connect?
  • 00:09:40.170 --> 00:09:43.150
  • And I believe you say, "Well,
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:44.070
  • why is this important?"
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:45.080
  • Here is why it's important:
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:46.020
  • because when you have the
  • 00:09:46.020 --> 00:09:47.010
  • framework, this box top, if you
  • 00:09:47.010 --> 00:09:49.190
  • will, then it helps you to go,
  • 00:09:49.190 --> 00:09:52.010
  • "Oh, that's why I would say
  • 00:09:52.120 --> 00:09:55.120
  • certain things and not say
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:57.140
  • certain things.
  • 00:09:57.140 --> 00:09:58.040
  • That's why my words become
  • 00:09:58.040 --> 00:09:59.030
  • important," and now I
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:00.160
  • intentionally decide what to say
  • 00:10:00.160 --> 00:10:02.060
  • or not say.
  • 00:10:02.060 --> 00:10:03.220
  • You go, "Oh, that's why it's
  • 00:10:03.220 --> 00:10:05.270
  • really important that I take
  • 00:10:05.270 --> 00:10:07.050
  • captive my thoughts, and I
  • 00:10:07.050 --> 00:10:09.190
  • resist and don't allow the
  • 00:10:09.190 --> 00:10:11.070
  • negative thoughts of unbelief
  • 00:10:11.070 --> 00:10:13.160
  • and doubt and defeat and
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:15.180
  • self-hate and all of those
  • 00:10:15.180 --> 00:10:17.060
  • things to linger in my mind,
  • 00:10:17.060 --> 00:10:19.090
  • because it's so defeating.
  • 00:10:19.090 --> 00:10:21.150
  • That makes sense.
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:22.160
  • Oh, that makes me understand why
  • 00:10:22.160 --> 00:10:25.030
  • I would make certain choices,
  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:28.140
  • not because somebody twisted my
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:29.160
  • arm, not because I agree with
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:30.250
  • this group or this group.
  • 00:10:30.250 --> 00:10:31.250
  • No, because God's Word and the
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:33.090
  • framework, I get the framework,
  • 00:10:33.090 --> 00:10:35.130
  • therefore it dictates
  • 00:10:35.130 --> 00:10:36.150
  • the choices I make in life."
  • 00:10:36.150 --> 00:10:38.260
  • It would also help you to
  • 00:10:38.260 --> 00:10:39.190
  • understand your pursuits.
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:40.270
  • What do you wanna spend
  • 00:10:40.270 --> 00:10:41.170
  • your time on?
  • 00:10:41.170 --> 00:10:42.070
  • What do you wanna spend
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:43.030
  • your lifetime on?
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:47.080
  • When you get the framework,
  • 00:10:47.080 --> 00:10:48.020
  • it helps you to dictate your
  • 00:10:48.020 --> 00:10:48.290
  • pursuits and to know what you
  • 00:10:48.290 --> 00:10:50.030
  • want to pursue and spend your
  • 00:10:50.030 --> 00:10:51.120
  • time on, so that's why we're
  • 00:10:51.120 --> 00:10:52.290
  • gonna take just a little bit of
  • 00:10:52.290 --> 00:10:53.240
  • time, go back to the book of
  • 00:10:53.240 --> 00:10:55.000
  • Genesis, build a little
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:56.140
  • foundation, and then we're gonna
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:10:57.240
  • come back and wrap up with these
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:10:59.050
  • two things concerning getting
  • 00:10:59.050 --> 00:11:00.080
  • stirred up in life.
  • 00:11:00.080 --> 00:11:01.040
  • We're gonna talk about this idea
  • 00:11:01.040 --> 00:11:02.230
  • of enjoy your life in Christ.
  • 00:11:03.060 --> 00:11:06.060
  • Live your life for Christ based
  • 00:11:06.060 --> 00:11:09.010
  • on this foundation, okay?
  • 00:11:09.010 --> 00:11:10.280
  • Genesis chapter 2.
  • 00:11:10.280 --> 00:11:12.070
  • Let's go back there.
  • 00:11:12.070 --> 00:11:14.020
  • Genesis chapter 2, verse 4.
  • 00:11:14.020 --> 00:11:16.000
  • I love this.
  • 00:11:16.000 --> 00:11:16.200
  • This is in the New Living Bible.
  • 00:11:16.200 --> 00:11:18.000
  • It says, "This is the history of
  • 00:11:18.000 --> 00:11:19.100
  • the heavens and the earth when
  • 00:11:19.100 --> 00:11:21.030
  • they were created, in the day
  • 00:11:21.030 --> 00:11:22.230
  • that the Lord God made the earth
  • 00:11:22.230 --> 00:11:24.040
  • and the heavens, before any
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:25.030
  • plant of the field was in
  • 00:11:25.030 --> 00:11:26.070
  • the earth, before any herb of
  • 00:11:26.070 --> 00:11:28.070
  • the field had grown.
  • 00:11:28.070 --> 00:11:29.030
  • For the Lord God had not caused
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:30.240
  • it to rain on the earth.
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:31.230
  • There was no man to till
  • 00:11:31.230 --> 00:11:33.060
  • the ground; but a mist went up
  • 00:11:33.060 --> 00:11:34.190
  • from the earth and watered
  • 00:11:34.190 --> 00:11:35.290
  • the whole face of the ground."
  • 00:11:35.290 --> 00:11:37.000
  • Verse 7,
  • 00:11:37.000 --> 00:11:38.100
  • "And the Lord God formed man
  • 00:11:38.180 --> 00:11:41.180
  • of the dust of the ground,
  • 00:11:41.180 --> 00:11:42.250
  • and breathed into his nostrils
  • 00:11:42.250 --> 00:11:45.040
  • the breath of life; and man
  • 00:11:45.040 --> 00:11:47.020
  • became a living being.
  • 00:11:47.020 --> 00:11:49.270
  • The Lord God planted a garden
  • 00:11:49.270 --> 00:11:51.080
  • eastward in Eden, and there he
  • 00:11:51.080 --> 00:11:52.110
  • put the man whom he had formed.
  • 00:11:52.110 --> 00:11:53.220
  • And out of the ground the Lord
  • 00:11:53.220 --> 00:11:54.250
  • God made every tree grow that is
  • 00:11:54.250 --> 00:11:56.080
  • pleasant to the sight and good
  • 00:11:56.080 --> 00:11:57.120
  • for food.
  • 00:11:57.120 --> 00:11:58.090
  • The tree of life was also in the
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:11:59.200
  • midst of the garden, and the
  • 00:11:59.200 --> 00:12:00.260
  • tree of the knowledge of good
  • 00:12:00.260 --> 00:12:01.260
  • and evil," two trees.
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.230
  • Verse 15, "Then the Lord God
  • 00:12:03.230 --> 00:12:05.280
  • took the man, put him in the
  • 00:12:05.280 --> 00:12:06.280
  • Garden of Eden to tend and to
  • 00:12:06.280 --> 00:12:08.060
  • keep it.
  • 00:12:08.060 --> 00:12:08.260
  • And the Lord God commanded the
  • 00:12:08.260 --> 00:12:10.010
  • man, saying, 'Of every tree of
  • 00:12:10.010 --> 00:12:11.190
  • the garden you may freely eat;
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:13.220
  • but of the tree of the knowledge
  • 00:12:13.220 --> 00:12:15.050
  • of good and evil you shall not
  • 00:12:15.050 --> 00:12:16.140
  • eat, for in the day that you eat
  • 00:12:16.140 --> 00:12:18.100
  • of it you shall surely die.'"
  • 00:12:18.100 --> 00:12:21.080
  • Okay, so this is the story of
  • 00:12:21.080 --> 00:12:22.080
  • creation.
  • 00:12:22.080 --> 00:12:22.280
  • This is the story of the history
  • 00:12:22.280 --> 00:12:25.030
  • of heaven and earth and the
  • 00:12:25.030 --> 00:12:26.240
  • creation of man, so this idea of
  • 00:12:26.240 --> 00:12:29.120
  • life.
  • 00:12:29.120 --> 00:12:30.020
  • We're talking about getting
  • 00:12:30.020 --> 00:12:30.220
  • stirred up in life, so the
  • 00:12:30.220 --> 00:12:31.200
  • picture is this: God creates the
  • 00:12:31.200 --> 00:12:33.270
  • heaven and the earth and then he
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:35.160
  • forms man.
  • 00:12:35.160 --> 00:12:36.120
  • We know he forms man from the
  • 00:12:36.120 --> 00:12:37.290
  • dust of the ground, from clay,
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:39.140
  • from the dirt.
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:40.060
  • He forms a sculpture.
  • 00:12:40.060 --> 00:12:41.150
  • God sculpts a man, actual size,
  • 00:12:42.190 --> 00:12:45.190
  • just like you went to a museum,
  • 00:12:45.190 --> 00:12:46.260
  • and you saw a sculpture of a
  • 00:12:46.260 --> 00:12:48.170
  • person.
  • 00:12:48.170 --> 00:12:49.070
  • God sculpted a man,
  • 00:12:49.070 --> 00:12:50.220
  • three-dimensional through and
  • 00:12:50.220 --> 00:12:52.120
  • through, clay through and
  • 00:12:52.120 --> 00:12:54.010
  • through.
  • 00:12:54.010 --> 00:12:55.010
  • And then--I can't wait.
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:56.120
  • How many of you all can't wait
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:12:57.080
  • to get to heaven to see this
  • 00:12:57.080 --> 00:12:58.020
  • video?
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:58.220
  • Like, I wanna see this video.
  • 00:12:58.220 --> 00:13:00.170
  • I wanna see this whole thing
  • 00:13:00.170 --> 00:13:02.280
  • reenacted, because then God
  • 00:13:02.280 --> 00:13:05.070
  • breathes into the nostrils of a
  • 00:13:05.070 --> 00:13:08.010
  • statue, of a sculpture.
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:10.130
  • God breathes into the nostrils,
  • 00:13:10.130 --> 00:13:12.130
  • and man became a living soul.
  • 00:13:12.130 --> 00:13:15.080
  • Man became a living being.
  • 00:13:15.080 --> 00:13:16.270
  • God breathes life into the
  • 00:13:16.270 --> 00:13:19.230
  • nostrils, and then man becomes a
  • 00:13:19.230 --> 00:13:21.170
  • living being on three levels:
  • 00:13:21.170 --> 00:13:23.150
  • spiritually in his soul and
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:26.120
  • physically.
  • 00:13:26.120 --> 00:13:27.180
  • So physically, we know for sure
  • 00:13:27.180 --> 00:13:28.260
  • he did all this stuff, and that
  • 00:13:28.260 --> 00:13:29.250
  • clay turned into a physical
  • 00:13:29.250 --> 00:13:31.170
  • body, with a heart, with lungs,
  • 00:13:31.170 --> 00:13:33.170
  • with a brain, with blood
  • 00:13:33.170 --> 00:13:34.170
  • vessels, with a digestive
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:36.030
  • system, with bones, with skin,
  • 00:13:36.030 --> 00:13:37.270
  • with eyes, with ears, with
  • 00:13:37.270 --> 00:13:39.090
  • a nose.
  • 00:13:39.090 --> 00:13:40.000
  • All of the five physical senses
  • 00:13:40.000 --> 00:13:41.180
  • are in action, and man has
  • 00:13:41.180 --> 00:13:43.170
  • a physical body.
  • 00:13:43.170 --> 00:13:45.170
  • We know man has a soul, his
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:47.170
  • mind, his emotions, his will,
  • 00:13:47.170 --> 00:13:49.080
  • and intellect.
  • 00:13:49.080 --> 00:13:50.190
  • The ability, as it turns out, to
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:52.040
  • name all the animals.
  • 00:13:52.040 --> 00:13:53.200
  • You talk about a mind.
  • 00:13:53.200 --> 00:13:55.040
  • You talk about an intellect.
  • 00:13:55.040 --> 00:13:56.100
  • When the life of God was
  • 00:13:56.100 --> 00:13:57.250
  • breathed into a sculpture, God
  • 00:14:02.150 --> 00:14:05.150
  • breathed life physically and in
  • 00:14:05.150 --> 00:14:07.130
  • the soul, mind, emotions, and
  • 00:14:07.130 --> 00:14:09.100
  • will full of the life of God.
  • 00:14:09.100 --> 00:14:12.070
  • And spiritually, the spirit of
  • 00:14:12.070 --> 00:14:15.050
  • man was placed in that
  • 00:14:15.050 --> 00:14:17.110
  • sculpture, and God's life, the
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:19.190
  • life of God--the way that Adam
  • 00:14:19.190 --> 00:14:22.040
  • and the way that we connect with
  • 00:14:22.040 --> 00:14:23.250
  • God is through our spirit man,
  • 00:14:23.250 --> 00:14:25.140
  • our inner man, our heart.
  • 00:14:25.140 --> 00:14:27.250
  • Threefold man.
  • 00:14:27.250 --> 00:14:29.000
  • Boom, God breathed into this
  • 00:14:29.000 --> 00:14:30.160
  • sculpture, and man becomes a
  • 00:14:30.160 --> 00:14:31.210
  • living being, full of life,
  • 00:14:31.210 --> 00:14:32.290
  • nothing but life.
  • 00:14:32.290 --> 00:14:34.090
  • And then the garden.
  • 00:14:34.090 --> 00:14:35.270
  • Then God puts man in a garden
  • 00:14:35.270 --> 00:14:37.170
  • that does nothing but resound
  • 00:14:37.170 --> 00:14:38.280
  • life.
  • 00:14:38.280 --> 00:14:40.010
  • Life everywhere.
  • 00:14:40.010 --> 00:14:41.190
  • He puts him in the garden.
  • 00:14:41.190 --> 00:14:42.150
  • Literally, the Garden of Eden
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:43.160
  • means "the garden of pleasures,"
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:44.260
  • lush, a lush garden full of
  • 00:14:45.060 --> 00:14:48.060
  • life, with rivers that came out
  • 00:14:48.060 --> 00:14:49.280
  • of it.
  • 00:14:49.280 --> 00:14:50.180
  • One place in the Bible tells us
  • 00:14:50.180 --> 00:14:51.180
  • the finest gold came out of that
  • 00:14:51.180 --> 00:14:54.080
  • garden.
  • 00:14:54.080 --> 00:14:54.290
  • The best rivers flowed in and
  • 00:14:54.290 --> 00:14:56.260
  • out of that garden.
  • 00:14:56.260 --> 00:14:58.080
  • It was nothing but a picture of
  • 00:14:58.080 --> 00:15:00.220
  • life, and then God gave man
  • 00:15:00.220 --> 00:15:01.280
  • authority and said,
  • 00:15:01.280 --> 00:15:02.230
  • "You have a free will.
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:03.160
  • I'm gonna give you authority to
  • 00:15:03.160 --> 00:15:04.230
  • rule and reign and subdue,"
  • 00:15:06.060 --> 00:15:09.060
  • he said, "the earth.
  • 00:15:09.060 --> 00:15:10.080
  • I'm gonna give you authority
  • 00:15:10.080 --> 00:15:11.270
  • and free will."
  • 00:15:11.270 --> 00:15:12.170
  • And so, then God
  • 00:15:12.170 --> 00:15:13.070
  • puts two trees in the garden:
  • 00:15:13.070 --> 00:15:15.000
  • the tree of life and the tree of
  • 00:15:16.090 --> 00:15:19.090
  • the knowledge of good and evil.
  • 00:15:19.090 --> 00:15:20.160
  • We might call it,
  • 00:15:20.160 --> 00:15:21.070
  • parenthetically, we might
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:22.060
  • call it the "tree of death,"
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:24.140
  • in that the Lord said,
  • 00:15:24.140 --> 00:15:26.240
  • "Here's two trees in the garden.
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:28.160
  • Eat from the tree of life all
  • 00:15:28.160 --> 00:15:29.180
  • you want, but don't eat from
  • 00:15:29.180 --> 00:15:30.210
  • the tree of the knowledge of
  • 00:15:30.210 --> 00:15:31.230
  • good and evil, because in the
  • 00:15:31.230 --> 00:15:32.200
  • day that you eat of it, you'll
  • 00:15:32.200 --> 00:15:33.150
  • surely die."
  • 00:15:33.150 --> 00:15:35.010
  • So we could say there
  • 00:15:35.010 --> 00:15:35.240
  • was the tree of life
  • 00:15:35.240 --> 00:15:37.020
  • and there was the tree of death,
  • 00:15:37.020 --> 00:15:39.060
  • the tree of the knowledge of
  • 00:15:39.060 --> 00:15:40.030
  • good and evil.
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:40.230
  • And, of course, we know
  • 00:15:40.230 --> 00:15:41.130
  • the story.
  • 00:15:41.130 --> 00:15:42.050
  • Adam and Eve did eat from
  • 00:15:42.050 --> 00:15:43.030
  • that tree.
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:43.230
  • But before I get to that,
  • 00:15:43.230 --> 00:15:44.190
  • let me just say this.
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:45.190
  • If you wanna unlock the Bible,
  • 00:15:45.190 --> 00:15:47.000
  • we're talking about a framework,
  • 00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:48.180
  • a foundation, a box top,
  • 00:15:48.180 --> 00:15:50.100
  • two words, master key here,
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:52.230
  • two words that unlock
  • 00:15:52.230 --> 00:15:54.050
  • the whole Bible.
  • 00:15:54.050 --> 00:15:55.290
  • The two words are life
  • 00:15:55.290 --> 00:15:58.030
  • and death.
  • 00:15:58.030 --> 00:16:00.020
  • Life and death will
  • 00:16:00.020 --> 00:16:00.230

  • relationship with man,
  • 00:16:12.080 --> 00:16:14.020

  • Jesus said, "I have come

  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:21.000
  • Yeah, but you breathed life
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:22.180
  • into Adam and Eve in Genesis.
  • 00:16:22.180 --> 00:16:23.250
  • What happened?

  • What happened was the Fall.
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:26.050

  • point death spread to all men.
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:37.190
  • So God had to send
  • 00:16:37.190 --> 00:16:38.190
  • a rescue plan.
  • 00:16:38.190 --> 00:16:39.180
  • Well, of course, the Lord
  • 00:16:39.180 --> 00:16:40.220
  • already had the rescue plan
  • 00:16:40.220 --> 00:16:42.040
  • in place.
  • 00:16:42.040 --> 00:16:43.210

  • the Lamb of God, slain from
  • 00:16:44.270 --> 00:16:46.260
  • the foundation of the world.
  • 00:16:46.260 --> 00:16:48.010
  • God already had the chopper
  • 00:16:48.010 --> 00:16:49.020
  • fired up.
  • 00:16:49.020 --> 00:16:50.210

  • 00:16:51.250 --> 00:16:52.160

  • that blood could be shed.
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:16.040

  • the two trees and a free
  • 00:18:44.190 --> 00:18:45.190
  • will in the garden.
  • 00:18:45.190 --> 00:18:46.240
  • When man fell--I just wanna
  • 00:18:46.240 --> 00:18:48.000
  • make sure we get this, then.
  • 00:18:48.000 --> 00:18:49.050
  • So what happened?
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:50.070
  • Death spread.
  • 00:18:50.070 --> 00:18:51.040
  • Death came.
  • 00:18:51.040 --> 00:18:52.040
  • They ate of the tree, and just
  • 00:18:52.040 --> 00:18:53.050
  • like God said, man died,
  • 00:18:53.050 --> 00:18:54.080
  • but man didn't die physically
  • 00:18:54.080 --> 00:18:56.130
  • for 900 more years.
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:18:58.220
  • So the life of God that was
  • 00:18:58.220 --> 00:18:59.270
  • breathed into the physical body,
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:01.100
  • man, it was pretty potent stuff.
  • 00:19:01.100 --> 00:19:02.200
  • It took 900 years to extinguish
  • 00:19:02.200 --> 00:19:04.210
  • that, but man did die
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:07.130
  • spiritually that instant.
  • 00:19:07.130 --> 00:19:09.240
  • Man was in a relationship
  • 00:19:09.240 --> 00:19:11.050
  • with the Lord,
  • 00:19:11.050 --> 00:19:12.000
  • in fellowship with God.
  • 00:19:12.000 --> 00:19:13.040
  • They walked and talked with God
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:14.100
  • in the cool of the day, had
  • 00:19:14.100 --> 00:19:15.220
  • a relationship, communication,
  • 00:19:15.220 --> 00:19:18.010
  • fellowship, a friendship.
  • 00:19:18.010 --> 00:19:19.090
  • But the instant that Adam and
  • 00:19:19.090 --> 00:19:21.080
  • Eve sinned, the Bible tells
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:22.080
  • us there was a separation.
  • 00:19:22.080 --> 00:19:23.220
  • They died spiritually.
  • 00:19:23.220 --> 00:19:26.020
  • Their spirit man that was
  • 00:19:26.020 --> 00:19:27.000
  • connected to God like this
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:29.030
  • now was separated from God.
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:30.190
  • In fact, later God came into
  • 00:19:30.190 --> 00:19:31.270
  • the garden and said,
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:32.170
  • "Adam, where are you?"
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:34.100
  • Well, God knew where he was,
  • 00:19:34.100 --> 00:19:35.070
  • but they were separated.
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:36.100
  • Spiritual death had entered.
  • 00:19:36.100 --> 00:19:38.120
  • Physical death came later, so
  • 00:19:38.280 --> 00:19:41.280
  • God's got a death situation that
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:44.040
  • needs to get remedied.
  • 00:19:44.040 --> 00:19:45.050
  • Like I said, he's got the rescue
  • 00:19:45.050 --> 00:19:46.150
  • mission in place, and Jesus down
  • 00:19:46.150 --> 00:19:47.270
  • through the ages is eventually
  • 00:19:47.270 --> 00:19:49.000
  • born of the Virgin.
  • 00:19:49.000 --> 00:19:49.200
  • Let's pick up the story in
  • 00:19:49.200 --> 00:19:50.260
  • Galatians 3.
  • 00:19:50.260 --> 00:19:53.220
  • Galatians 3:13 tells us, "Christ
  • 00:19:55.160 --> 00:19:58.160
  • has redeemed us," bought us
  • 00:19:58.160 --> 00:20:00.170
  • back, rescued us, "from the
  • 00:20:00.170 --> 00:20:02.190
  • curse of the law, having become
  • 00:20:02.190 --> 00:20:05.030
  • a curse for us (for it is
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:06.080
  • written, 'Cursed is everyone who
  • 00:20:06.080 --> 00:20:07.180
  • hangs on a tree'), that the
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:09.000
  • blessing of Abraham might come
  • 00:20:09.000 --> 00:20:11.190
  • on the Gentiles in Christ Jesus,
  • 00:20:11.190 --> 00:20:13.120
  • that we might receive
  • 00:20:13.120 --> 00:20:14.060
  • the promise of the Spirit
  • 00:20:14.060 --> 00:20:15.130
  • through faith."
  • 00:20:15.130 --> 00:20:16.170
  • Verse 29, "And if you are
  • 00:20:16.170 --> 00:20:17.270
  • Christ's, then you are Abraham's
  • 00:20:17.270 --> 00:20:19.280
  • seed, and heirs according
  • 00:20:19.280 --> 00:20:21.050
  • to the promise."
  • 00:20:21.050 --> 00:20:22.130
  • God worked through people in
  • 00:20:22.130 --> 00:20:23.110
  • the Old Testament, Abraham being
  • 00:20:23.110 --> 00:20:24.210
  • one key player, and there were
  • 00:20:24.210 --> 00:20:26.150
  • blessings and promises given
  • 00:20:26.150 --> 00:20:28.260
  • to all of mankind
  • 00:20:28.260 --> 00:20:29.260
  • and primarily through Abraham.
  • 00:20:29.260 --> 00:20:31.210
  • And this Scripture tells us that
  • 00:20:31.210 --> 00:20:33.030
  • God worked this plan down
  • 00:20:33.030 --> 00:20:34.070
  • through the ages so that he
  • 00:20:34.070 --> 00:20:35.060
  • could reverse this whole death
  • 00:20:35.060 --> 00:20:36.240
  • thing, so that he could impart
  • 00:20:36.240 --> 00:20:38.280
  • life once again into his people,
  • 00:20:38.280 --> 00:20:41.220
  • into humanity, into mankind.
  • 00:20:41.220 --> 00:20:43.260
  • He came to redeem us from the
  • 00:20:46.060 --> 00:20:49.060
  • curse and to redeem us to the
  • 00:20:49.060 --> 00:20:52.020
  • blessing, so let's talk about
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.120
  • that.
  • 00:20:53.120 --> 00:20:54.020
  • Redeemed from the curse of the
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.030
  • law and redeemed to the
  • 00:20:55.030 --> 00:20:57.110
  • blessing.
  • 00:20:57.110 --> 00:20:58.170
  • Well, the curse of the law, what
  • 00:20:58.170 --> 00:20:59.270
  • is that?
  • 00:20:59.270 --> 00:21:00.190
  • What are we redeemed from,
  • 00:21:00.190 --> 00:21:01.110
  • 'cause sometimes if you ask
  • 00:21:01.110 --> 00:21:02.150
  • people, "Well, you know, why did
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:03.250
  • Jesus die on the cross?
  • 00:21:03.250 --> 00:21:04.150
  • Why did he come?"
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:05.100
  • people would say, "Oh, he came
  • 00:21:05.100 --> 00:21:06.190
  • to die for my sins," which is
  • 00:21:06.190 --> 00:21:09.100
  • true, but there is so much more.
  • 00:21:09.100 --> 00:21:10.240
  • There was so much more that
  • 00:21:10.240 --> 00:21:11.270
  • happened.
  • 00:21:11.270 --> 00:21:13.080
  • Yes, our sins are forgiven.
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:14.150
  • He died for our sins.
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:15.130
  • For sure, and that's prime, but
  • 00:21:15.130 --> 00:21:17.260
  • there was more to the story.
  • 00:21:17.260 --> 00:21:19.110
  • There was more that happened, so
  • 00:21:19.110 --> 00:21:21.090
  • we're gonna find out what is
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:22.170
  • this curse of the law and what
  • 00:21:22.170 --> 00:21:24.180
  • is this blessing.
  • 00:21:24.180 --> 00:21:26.090
  • Redeemed from, redeemed to.
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:28.180
  • So the law, the word "the law,"
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:31.150
  • comes from the first five books
  • 00:21:31.150 --> 00:21:33.010
  • of the Bible, the first five
  • 00:21:33.010 --> 00:21:34.050
  • books: Genesis, Exodus,
  • 00:21:34.050 --> 00:21:35.180
  • Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy.
  • 00:21:35.180 --> 00:21:37.060
  • Those first five books are known
  • 00:21:37.060 --> 00:21:39.060
  • as the law or the Pentateuch,
  • 00:21:39.130 --> 00:21:42.130
  • and in keeping those first five
  • 00:21:42.130 --> 00:21:44.090
  • books of the Bible, God's people
  • 00:21:44.090 --> 00:21:45.290
  • in the Old Testament lived
  • 00:21:45.290 --> 00:21:47.000
  • blessed.
  • 00:21:47.000 --> 00:21:48.000
  • But if they broke those
  • 00:21:48.000 --> 00:21:49.150
  • commandments that were listed in
  • 00:21:49.150 --> 00:21:50.250
  • those first five books, which
  • 00:21:50.250 --> 00:21:51.240
  • is, it turns out, it was
  • 00:21:51.240 --> 00:21:52.180
  • impossible to keep 100%, they
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.220
  • did break, then they faced the
  • 00:21:54.220 --> 00:21:57.010
  • penalty of breaking that law,
  • 00:21:57.010 --> 00:21:59.070
  • and the primary thing that
  • 00:21:59.070 --> 00:22:00.190
  • happened was death.
  • 00:22:00.190 --> 00:22:01.100
  • Of course, we see that in
  • 00:22:01.100 --> 00:22:02.160
  • Genesis chapter 2 and 3, when
  • 00:22:02.160 --> 00:22:04.210
  • Adam and Eve fell.
  • 00:22:04.210 --> 00:22:05.120
  • We see that first disobedience
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:07.270
  • to God's commands when they ate
  • 00:22:07.270 --> 00:22:09.200
  • from the tree of the knowledge
  • 00:22:09.200 --> 00:22:10.130
  • of good and evil, and death
  • 00:22:10.130 --> 00:22:11.090
  • entered, and death spread to all
  • 00:22:11.090 --> 00:22:12.190
  • men.
  • 00:22:12.190 --> 00:22:13.090
  • We see that.
  • 00:22:13.090 --> 00:22:13.290
  • We see that in all first five
  • 00:22:13.290 --> 00:22:15.120
  • books of the Bible.
  • 00:22:15.120 --> 00:22:16.180
  • The curse of the law was death,
  • 00:22:16.180 --> 00:22:18.150
  • and that death was manifested
  • 00:22:18.150 --> 00:22:20.200
  • three ways, so let's talk about
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:23.030
  • that for just a moment.
  • 00:22:23.030 --> 00:22:25.180
  • That death was manifested three
  • 00:22:25.180 --> 00:22:27.070
  • ways, and the reason this is
  • 00:22:27.070 --> 00:22:28.030
  • important, we're talking
  • 00:22:28.030 --> 00:22:28.270
  • framework, we're talking box top
  • 00:22:28.270 --> 00:22:30.130
  • of the puzzle, because this will
  • 00:22:30.130 --> 00:22:31.250
  • make more sense as to why Jesus
  • 00:22:31.250 --> 00:22:34.000
  • came and what did he do on the
  • 00:22:34.000 --> 00:22:35.160
  • cross.
  • 00:22:35.160 --> 00:22:36.140
  • What are these redemptive
  • 00:22:36.140 --> 00:22:37.100
  • realities that already belong to
  • 00:22:37.100 --> 00:22:39.070
  • you?
  • 00:22:39.070 --> 00:22:39.270
  • It's already part of the life
  • 00:22:39.270 --> 00:22:41.090
  • package you've received.
  • 00:22:41.090 --> 00:22:43.240
  • It's part of this qualitative
  • 00:22:43.240 --> 00:22:45.100
  • life you and I are to live, this
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:47.020
  • part of our lives.
  • 00:22:47.020 --> 00:22:49.060
  • What was the curse and what are
  • 00:22:49.060 --> 00:22:51.130
  • the blessings?
  • 00:22:51.130 --> 00:22:52.030
  • Well, the curse that came
  • 00:22:52.030 --> 00:22:52.290
  • through death, threefold.
  • 00:22:52.290 --> 00:22:54.140
  • First, it was spiritual death.
  • 00:22:54.140 --> 00:22:56.070
  • Spiritual death was a big part
  • 00:22:56.070 --> 00:22:57.140
  • of that curse of the law, and we
  • 00:22:57.140 --> 00:22:58.240
  • were separated, mankind was
  • 00:22:58.240 --> 00:22:59.250
  • separated, from God.
  • 00:22:59.250 --> 00:23:00.260
  • Jesus came to remedy that.
  • 00:23:00.260 --> 00:23:03.080
  • Second thing was sickness and
  • 00:23:03.080 --> 00:23:04.210
  • disease entered the planet for
  • 00:23:04.210 --> 00:23:06.000
  • the first time.
  • 00:23:06.000 --> 00:23:07.150
  • Sickness and disease was not a
  • 00:23:07.150 --> 00:23:08.270
  • part of God's plan.
  • 00:23:08.270 --> 00:23:10.020
  • In fact, neither was death.
  • 00:23:10.020 --> 00:23:11.020
  • The Bible says death is an
  • 00:23:11.020 --> 00:23:12.170
  • enemy.
  • 00:23:12.170 --> 00:23:14.180
  • Had Adam and Eve never sinned,
  • 00:23:14.180 --> 00:23:15.210
  • you know, they would have lived
  • 00:23:15.210 --> 00:23:16.210
  • forever in their physical
  • 00:23:16.210 --> 00:23:17.180
  • bodies.
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:21.000
  • Death was never a part of God's
  • 00:23:21.000 --> 00:23:22.040
  • plan, neither was sickness or
  • 00:23:22.040 --> 00:23:23.050
  • disease, so sickness and disease
  • 00:23:23.050 --> 00:23:24.200
  • entered at the same time, and so
  • 00:23:24.200 --> 00:23:27.170
  • did poverty and lack.
  • 00:23:27.170 --> 00:23:29.140
  • This was a garden of pleasures.
  • 00:23:29.140 --> 00:23:31.250
  • They got driven from that garden
  • 00:23:31.250 --> 00:23:34.240
  • and for the first time began to
  • 00:23:34.240 --> 00:23:35.230
  • experience poverty and lack and
  • 00:23:35.230 --> 00:23:37.180
  • lack of abundance.
  • 00:23:37.180 --> 00:23:39.100
  • That was the curse.
  • 00:23:39.100 --> 00:23:40.080
  • That was the repercussions of
  • 00:23:40.080 --> 00:23:42.270
  • death coming on all men.
  • 00:23:42.270 --> 00:23:44.010
  • Somebody has said it this way.
  • 00:23:44.010 --> 00:23:45.150
  • They said sickness is really
  • 00:23:45.150 --> 00:23:47.160
  • just incipient death.
  • 00:23:47.160 --> 00:23:49.040
  • In other words, it's just the
  • 00:23:49.040 --> 00:23:49.260
  • first stage of death.
  • 00:23:49.260 --> 00:23:51.290
  • If you get enough sickness and
  • 00:23:51.290 --> 00:23:53.200
  • disease in a person, what
  • 00:23:53.200 --> 00:23:54.250
  • happens?
  • 00:23:54.250 --> 00:23:56.050
  • They die, so sickness and
  • 00:23:56.050 --> 00:23:57.270
  • disease is really death in its
  • 00:23:58.050 --> 00:24:01.070
  • infant stage.
  • 00:24:01.070 --> 00:24:03.080
  • Same thing with poverty and
  • 00:24:03.080 --> 00:24:04.110
  • lack.
  • 00:24:04.110 --> 00:24:05.010
  • You get enough poverty, enough
  • 00:24:05.010 --> 00:24:06.000
  • homelessness, enough starvation
  • 00:24:06.000 --> 00:24:09.000
  • in a person's life, what
  • 00:24:09.000 --> 00:24:10.050
  • happens?
  • 00:24:10.050 --> 00:24:10.250
  • They die.
  • 00:24:10.250 --> 00:24:12.160
  • Poverty is not a blessing from
  • 00:24:12.160 --> 00:24:13.250
  • the Lord.
  • 00:24:13.250 --> 00:24:14.210
  • It's not a blessing in disguise.
  • 00:24:14.210 --> 00:24:16.190
  • Poverty is a curse.
  • 00:24:16.190 --> 00:24:19.040
  • Poverty doesn't help anybody,
  • 00:24:19.040 --> 00:24:20.140
  • and you get enough of it in a
  • 00:24:20.140 --> 00:24:21.190
  • person, they die.
  • 00:24:21.190 --> 00:24:22.090
  • It's just the first stage.
  • 00:24:22.090 --> 00:24:23.260
  • It's the embryonic stage of
  • 00:24:23.260 --> 00:24:25.250
  • death.
  • 00:24:25.250 --> 00:24:27.070
  • All of that entered.
  • 00:24:27.070 --> 00:24:28.120
  • We're talking about Christ has
  • 00:24:28.120 --> 00:24:30.030
  • redeemed us from the curse of
  • 00:24:30.030 --> 00:24:32.190
  • the law.
  • 00:24:32.190 --> 00:24:33.160
  • Whoa, what was in that curse?
  • 00:24:33.160 --> 00:24:34.260
  • A whole bunch.
  • 00:24:34.260 --> 00:24:36.200
  • There was a whole lot in that
  • 00:24:36.200 --> 00:24:38.050
  • curse.
  • 00:24:38.050 --> 00:24:39.240
  • He redeemed us from so that the
  • 00:24:39.240 --> 00:24:42.080
  • blessing of Abraham could come
  • 00:24:42.080 --> 00:24:44.070
  • on us.
  • 00:24:44.070 --> 00:24:44.270
  • He redeemed us from so that
  • 00:24:44.270 --> 00:24:45.260
  • something could come on us:
  • 00:24:45.260 --> 00:24:47.270
  • from, to.
  • 00:24:47.270 --> 00:24:50.040
  • He redeemed us from spiritual
  • 00:24:50.040 --> 00:24:52.020
  • death to being reconciled with
  • 00:24:52.080 --> 00:24:55.080
  • God and having a relationship
  • 00:24:55.080 --> 00:24:56.140
  • with Jesus Christ and receiving
  • 00:24:56.140 --> 00:24:58.100
  • eternal life.
  • 00:24:58.100 --> 00:25:01.110
  • He redeemed us from sickness and
  • 00:25:01.110 --> 00:25:03.070
  • disease and redeemed us to
  • 00:25:03.070 --> 00:25:05.260
  • health and healing, wholeness,
  • 00:25:05.260 --> 00:25:08.250
  • and with long life he would
  • 00:25:08.250 --> 00:25:10.020
  • satisfy us.
  • 00:25:10.020 --> 00:25:11.160
  • He redeemed us from poverty and
  • 00:25:11.160 --> 00:25:13.200
  • lack to abundance, increase, and
  • 00:25:13.200 --> 00:25:15.210
  • prosperity so we could be
  • 00:25:15.210 --> 00:25:17.100
  • blessed to be a blessing, amen.
  • 00:25:18.130 --> 00:25:21.130
  • I love that he didn't leave us
  • 00:25:21.130 --> 00:25:22.090
  • game neutral.
  • 00:25:22.090 --> 00:25:23.220
  • He didn't leave us just redeemed
  • 00:25:23.220 --> 00:25:24.110
  • from.
  • 00:25:24.110 --> 00:25:25.270
  • He didn't just open the prison
  • 00:25:25.270 --> 00:25:27.010
  • door and say, "You're redeemed."
  • 00:25:27.010 --> 00:25:28.280
  • He redeemed us from something,
  • 00:25:28.280 --> 00:25:30.220
  • but then to something, to life.
  • 00:25:31.090 --> 00:25:34.090
  • We're getting stirred up about
  • 00:25:34.090 --> 00:25:35.220
  • life.
  • 00:25:35.220 --> 00:25:36.170
  • He redeemed us from death to
  • 00:25:36.170 --> 00:25:38.100
  • life, amen.
  • 00:25:38.100 --> 00:25:40.070
  • And from sickness and disease to
  • 00:25:40.070 --> 00:25:43.000
  • health, healing, and wholeness.
  • 00:25:43.000 --> 00:25:45.130
  • From poverty and lack
  • 00:25:45.130 --> 00:25:47.020
