  • We take authority over Satan.
  • 00:02:19.250 --> 00:02:21.080
  • Satan, we crush you under our

  • agrees with this spoke Hebrew
  • 00:02:34.130 --> 00:02:35.290
  • with me and we say together,
  • 00:02:35.290 --> 00:02:37.040
  • Amen and Amen. We're
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:40.030
  • that I'm calling Mysteries in
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:43.240
  • the Gospel of John. Now this
  • 00:02:44.050 --> 00:02:47.050
  • is a really important series.
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:50.000
  • Matthew, Mark and Luke speak
  • 00:02:50.000 --> 00:02:50.280
  • ministry of Jesus. John speaks
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:55.240
  • of more of the mysterious
  • 00:02:55.240 --> 00:02:57.120
  • element of Jesus, more of the,
  • 00:02:57.120 --> 00:02:58.290
  • the mystery that was revealed
  • 00:02:58.290 --> 00:03:00.270
  • from heaven. Now don't
  • 00:03:00.270 --> 00:03:02.060
  • misunderstand me, Matthew,
  • 00:03:02.060 --> 00:03:03.180
  • Mark and Luke also speak to
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:05.050
  • some of these mystical
  • 00:03:05.050 --> 00:03:06.130
  • realities, but John much
  • 00:03:06.130 --> 00:03:08.130
  • more so. Now on last week's
  • 00:03:08.130 --> 00:03:10.170
  • broadcast I talked about the
  • 00:03:10.170 --> 00:03:12.130
  • mystery of the Word of God
  • 00:03:12.130 --> 00:03:14.170
  • that has always been. In the
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:15.290
  • beginning was the Word, and
  • 00:03:15.290 --> 00:03:17.110
  • the Word was with God, and the
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:20.000
  • in the beginning. We talked
  • 00:03:21.280 --> 00:03:23.130
  • about that mystery, that Jesus
  • 00:03:23.130 --> 00:03:25.080
  • been, manifested in space and
  • 00:03:27.200 --> 00:03:30.200
  • time, clothed in humanity. I
  • 00:03:30.200 --> 00:03:33.040
  • encourage you, if you didn't
  • 00:03:33.040 --> 00:03:34.110
  • get that, watch it online,
  • 00:03:35.170 --> 00:03:36.260
  • order it, whatever you want to
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:38.040
  • do; very important word. I
  • 00:03:38.040 --> 00:03:39.200
  • want to continue on today,
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:42.000
  • church, by talking about what
  • 00:03:42.000 --> 00:03:43.280
  • the church calls the doctrine
  • 00:03:43.280 --> 00:03:45.240
  • of the Trinity. So I'd like to
  • 00:03:45.240 --> 00:03:48.150
  • now, John, chapter 1. We're
  • 00:03:50.140 --> 00:03:52.180
  • gonna begin today in verse
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:53.220
  • number 1. I'm gonna read a few
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:55.020
  • verses and then I'm gonna talk
  • 00:03:55.020 --> 00:03:56.130
  • to you about the mystery of
  • 00:03:56.130 --> 00:03:57.240
  • the Father, the Son and the
  • 00:03:57.240 --> 00:04:00.030
  • Holy Spirit. Let's look at the
  • 00:04:00.030 --> 00:04:01.120
  • Word together, John, 1:1: In
  • 00:04:01.120 --> 00:04:04.060
  • the beginning was the Word,
  • 00:04:04.060 --> 00:04:06.100
  • and the Word was with God, and
  • 00:04:06.100 --> 00:04:08.120
  • the Word was God. He was in
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:11.060
  • the beginning with God. So
  • 00:04:11.060 --> 00:04:13.020
  • once again, the Word has
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:14.080
  • always been. The Word has
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:15.290
  • always been. He was in the
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:17.270
  • beginning with God. All things
  • 00:04:17.270 --> 00:04:19.210
  • came into being through Him,
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:21.160
  • and apart from Him nothing
  • 00:04:21.160 --> 00:04:23.030
  • came into being that has come
  • 00:04:23.030 --> 00:04:24.160
  • into being. So the Word is
  • 00:04:24.160 --> 00:04:25.230
  • God. In John, 1:14, we read:
  • 00:04:25.230 --> 00:04:28.220
  • And the Word became flesh. In
  • 00:04:28.220 --> 00:04:31.030
  • other words, that Jesus is
  • 00:04:31.030 --> 00:04:32.250
  • this Word. He's God that has
  • 00:04:32.250 --> 00:04:35.030
  • always been. Listen once
  • 00:04:35.030 --> 00:04:36.130
  • again: In the beginning was
  • 00:04:36.130 --> 00:04:37.150
  • the Word, and the Word was
  • 00:04:37.150 --> 00:04:38.220
  • with God, get it now, and the
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:40.050
  • Word was God. I'm gonna say it
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:43.170
  • again. And the Word was God.
  • 00:04:43.170 --> 00:04:45.240
  • John, 1:14: And the Word
  • 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:47.080
  • became flesh. And so Jesus is
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:48.120
  • the Word who is God, that's
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:52.230
  • always been, made flesh. Now
  • 00:04:52.230 --> 00:04:55.010
  • God so loved the world that he
  • 00:04:57.030 --> 00:04:59.060
  • gave his only begotten Son,
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:05:01.130
  • right, that whosoever believes
  • 00:05:01.130 --> 00:05:03.050
  • have everlasting life. So we
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:06.150
  • have God. We have the Word who
  • 00:05:06.150 --> 00:05:09.140
  • was with God and who is God.
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:12.030
  • Jesus is that Word, and Jesus
  • 00:05:12.030 --> 00:05:14.190
  • is the Son. We also know that
  • 00:05:15.060 --> 00:05:18.060
  • in addition to having the
  • 00:05:18.060 --> 00:05:19.100
  • Father God and the Son, we
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:21.210
  • have the Holy Spirit. And so
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:23.090
  • the Apostles Creed, other
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:25.060
  • doctrines of our faith, we
  • 00:05:25.060 --> 00:05:26.170
  • speak about the Father, Son
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:28.130
  • and the Holy Spirit, right.
  • 00:05:28.130 --> 00:05:29.280
  • When we baptize somebody,
  • 00:05:29.280 --> 00:05:31.200
  • Jesus told us to baptize them
  • 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:33.140
  • Father, the Son and the Holy
  • 00:05:35.160 --> 00:05:38.160
  • us to comprehend. How can God
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:46.060
  • be one and yet be Father, Son
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:49.170
  • and Holy Spirit? You know, at
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:51.210
  • times the apostles asked Jesus
  • 00:05:51.210 --> 00:05:53.040
  • a question and Jesus said no
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:55.090
  • one knows the answer to that
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:56.210
  • question but the Father. For
  • 00:05:56.210 --> 00:05:58.130
  • example, they asked Jesus when
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:05:59.280
  • he was going to come again.
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:01.180
  • Jesus said the Father's
  • 00:06:01.180 --> 00:06:02.220
  • authority. Or no one knows but
  • 00:06:04.070 --> 00:06:05.230
  • the Father. So even though the
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:08.090
  • greater than him, right, and
  • 00:06:11.150 --> 00:06:14.150
  • the Father, according to
  • 00:06:14.150 --> 00:06:16.020
  • Jesus, even knows things that
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.280
  • he doesn't know. And yet
  • 00:06:17.280 --> 00:06:18.260
  • Jesus, the Son and the Word,
  • 00:06:18.260 --> 00:06:20.230
  • is God. Now don't let me lose
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:24.010
  • you now. I know this is
  • 00:06:24.010 --> 00:06:25.010
  • some of you it sounds maybe
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:27.130
  • like a little gibberish here
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:28.170
  • because it doesn't make
  • 00:06:28.170 --> 00:06:29.190
  • logical sense. But I want you
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:30.220
  • to stick with me. This message
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:32.050
  • will help many of you. So in
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:34.170
  • the church today, we have a
  • 00:06:34.170 --> 00:06:37.020
  • term that theologians coined,
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:41.040
  • listen now, the Trinity. Most
  • 00:06:41.040 --> 00:06:43.110
  • of you have heard this term,
  • 00:06:43.110 --> 00:06:44.270
  • the Trinity. What do we mean
  • 00:06:44.270 --> 00:06:46.060
  • by the Trinity? The term
  • 00:06:46.060 --> 00:06:48.070
  • Trinity means that God exists
  • 00:06:48.070 --> 00:06:50.070
  • eternally as Father, Son and
  • 00:06:51.080 --> 00:06:54.080
  • Holy Spirit; that God exists
  • 00:06:54.080 --> 00:06:56.070
  • in three persons. Father, Son
  • 00:06:56.070 --> 00:06:58.150
  • and Holy Spirit, they're
  • 00:06:58.150 --> 00:06:59.170
  • God is one. Now this to us
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:04.050
  • does not make any logical
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:05.150
  • sense. How can God be three
  • 00:07:05.150 --> 00:07:07.190
  • distinct persons and still be
  • 00:07:07.190 --> 00:07:10.000
  • one? And we've had a lot of
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:11.290
  • people try to make sense of
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:13.250
  • this. Some of you have even
  • 00:07:13.250 --> 00:07:14.290
  • heard some of these analogies
  • 00:07:14.290 --> 00:07:16.150
  • before. For example, how many
  • 00:07:16.150 --> 00:07:18.190
  • of you heard somebody say,
  • 00:07:18.190 --> 00:07:20.270
  • well the Trinity is kind of
  • 00:07:20.270 --> 00:07:22.080
  • an egg has three parts. We
  • 00:07:25.280 --> 00:07:28.250
  • have the, the shell around the
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:30.050
  • egg. We have the white of the
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:32.060
  • egg. And then we have the
  • 00:07:32.060 --> 00:07:33.140
  • yellow center, the egg yolk.
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:34.240
  • And people say well that's
  • 00:07:34.240 --> 00:07:35.270
  • kind of like God. He's three
  • 00:07:35.270 --> 00:07:36.280
  • Son and Holy Spirit. Well as
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:40.150
  • good of a well-meaning of an
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:43.230
  • attempt that that is to try to
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:45.100
  • help us understand the mystery
  • 00:07:45.100 --> 00:07:47.070
  • of the Trinity, I don't think
  • 00:07:47.070 --> 00:07:48.260
  • that even comes close, beloved
  • 00:07:48.260 --> 00:07:50.150
  • ones to helping us understand
  • 00:07:50.150 --> 00:07:51.290
  • the mystery of the Trinity.
  • 00:07:51.290 --> 00:07:53.260
  • The funniest and most humorous
  • 00:07:53.260 --> 00:07:55.230
  • explanation of the Trinity
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:57.260
  • that I ever heard, and I don't
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:07:59.100
  • mean anything at all
  • 00:07:59.100 --> 00:08:00.150
  • just so ridiculous that it's
  • 00:08:01.240 --> 00:08:02.280
  • funny is some guy described
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:04.000
  • the Trinity by saying you
  • 00:08:04.000 --> 00:08:05.160
  • know, well the Trinity is kind
  • 00:08:05.160 --> 00:08:07.240
  • of like a Rice Krispies flake.
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:11.150
  • You get Snap, Krackle, Pop all
  • 00:08:11.150 --> 00:08:13.140
  • in one flake. Well obviously
  • 00:08:13.140 --> 00:08:15.270
  • that also falls way short. The
  • 00:08:16.180 --> 00:08:19.180
  • can't, get it again, we cannot
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:25.000
  • logically explain the Trinity.
  • 00:08:26.080 --> 00:08:29.080
  • We cannot logically explain
  • 00:08:29.080 --> 00:08:31.070
  • how God is one and yet he's
  • 00:08:31.070 --> 00:08:33.250
  • Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
  • 00:08:33.250 --> 00:08:35.230
  • and that each one is relating
  • 00:08:35.230 --> 00:08:37.110
  • to each other. So for example,
  • 00:08:37.110 --> 00:08:39.110
  • Jesus had a relationship with
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:43.020
  • the Father, yet he's God, and
  • 00:08:43.020 --> 00:08:44.240
  • he's, you know, he is part of
  • 00:08:44.240 --> 00:08:47.150
  • God and one with God. So Jesus
  • 00:08:47.150 --> 00:08:49.200
  • prayed to the Father. Jesus
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:51.180
  • came to earth. He said he came
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:53.060
  • to do the Father's will. The
  • 00:08:53.060 --> 00:08:55.000
  • this now, is in the bosom of
  • 00:08:57.080 --> 00:08:59.150
  • the Father; that the Son is in
  • 00:08:59.150 --> 00:09:01.170
  • the bosom of the Father; that
  • 00:09:01.170 --> 00:09:03.010
  • that's in his bosom, and
  • 00:09:06.040 --> 00:09:07.190
  • that Jesus is the physical
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:09.080
  • manifestation of God's only
  • 00:09:09.080 --> 00:09:11.210
  • begotten Son. Now just hang
  • 00:09:11.210 --> 00:09:13.120
  • with me now. I know we're
  • 00:09:13.120 --> 00:09:14.180
  • talking about some, you know,
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:15.260
  • complex theological concepts,
  • 00:09:15.260 --> 00:09:17.120
  • but I'm gonna, I'm gonna bring
  • 00:09:17.120 --> 00:09:18.250
  • it down to help you understand
  • 00:09:18.250 --> 00:09:20.030
  • this in a simple way. So
  • 00:09:20.030 --> 00:09:21.260
  • somebody that tells us that
  • 00:09:21.260 --> 00:09:24.040
  • they can give us understanding
  • 00:09:24.040 --> 00:09:27.040
  • into the mystery of the
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:28.210
  • Trinity, they're, they're,
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:29.200
  • they're fooling themselves if
  • 00:09:29.200 --> 00:09:30.240
  • they think they can fully
  • 00:09:30.240 --> 00:09:31.270
  • explain it. It's impossible.
  • 00:09:31.270 --> 00:09:33.110
  • But I'm gonna speak some
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:34.140
  • realities about it that will
  • 00:09:34.140 --> 00:09:36.000
  • be helpful. First of all, God
  • 00:09:38.130 --> 00:09:41.130
  • does not have to be, listen
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:42.220
  • now, singularly unified to be
  • 00:09:43.070 --> 00:09:46.070
  • one. So for example, in the
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:48.210
  • Book of Genesis, it says a man
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:50.280
  • will leave his father and
  • 00:09:50.280 --> 00:09:52.150
  • mother and cleave to his wife
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:54.210
  • and the two shall become, get
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:56.140
  • it now, one. The Hebrew word
  • 00:09:56.140 --> 00:09:58.270
  • there is Echadh flesh. So you
  • 00:09:58.270 --> 00:10:00.290
  • have a situation where a
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:03.060
  • husband and wife, man and
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:04.200
  • woman, become one. They're one
  • 00:10:04.200 --> 00:10:06.120
  • unit. And it's not a singular
  • 00:10:06.120 --> 00:10:08.220
  • unity but it's a compound
  • 00:10:08.220 --> 00:10:11.050
  • unity. The two become one.
  • 00:10:11.050 --> 00:10:13.040
  • The same thing is true when the
  • 00:10:13.040 --> 00:10:15.030
  • Lord had the Israelites build
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:17.050
  • all the different pieces of
  • 00:10:17.050 --> 00:10:18.190
  • the tabernacle. And after all
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:20.060
  • the different pieces of the
  • 00:10:20.060 --> 00:10:21.140
  • tabernacle were built, they
  • 00:10:21.140 --> 00:10:23.040
  • were joined together to become
  • 00:10:23.040 --> 00:10:24.270
  • one, one unit. And so I'm
  • 00:10:25.130 --> 00:10:28.130
  • a Jewish person one of the
  • 00:10:30.270 --> 00:10:33.120
  • criticisms that I get from the
  • 00:10:33.120 --> 00:10:34.290
  • Jewish community is that you
  • 00:10:34.290 --> 00:10:37.080
  • know what, you have fallen
  • 00:10:37.080 --> 00:10:38.230
  • away from the faith because
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:40.230
  • our greatest declaration is
  • 00:10:40.230 --> 00:10:42.280
  • from Deuteronomy, chapter 6,
  • 00:10:42.280 --> 00:10:44.260
  • where the Lord says there in
  • 00:10:44.260 --> 00:10:46.070
  • Deuteronomy, 6:4: Shema,
  • 00:10:46.070 --> 00:10:48.260
  • Israel, Adonai Eloheinu Adonai
  • 00:10:49.260 --> 00:10:52.260
  • heard it sung before. It goes:
  • 00:10:54.190 --> 00:10:56.040
  • (Singing) Shema, Israel,
  • 00:10:59.110 --> 00:11:02.130
  • Adonai Eloheinu
  • 00:11:06.160 --> 00:11:09.160
  • Adonai Echadh.
  • 00:11:13.290 --> 00:11:16.290
  • Deuteronomy, 6:4, is what I
  • 00:11:16.290 --> 00:11:18.190
  • just sang and it's translated:
  • 00:11:18.190 --> 00:11:20.080
  • Hear, O Israel, the Lord our
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:24.180
  • God, the Lord, get is now, is
  • 00:11:26.000 --> 00:11:29.000
  • one. And Orthodox Jewish men
  • 00:11:29.000 --> 00:11:31.240
  • will try to make that the last
  • 00:11:31.240 --> 00:11:33.060
  • thing they say before passing
  • 00:11:33.060 --> 00:11:34.160
  • on. The Word there, in
  • 00:11:34.270 --> 00:11:37.270
  • Lord is one. The Hebrew word
  • 00:11:40.000 --> 00:11:41.260
  • there in the original is
  • 00:11:41.260 --> 00:11:43.230
  • Echadh. That's the same Word
  • 00:11:43.230 --> 00:11:46.150
  • he says that a man shall leave
  • 00:11:48.130 --> 00:11:50.200
  • his father and mother, cleave
  • 00:11:50.200 --> 00:11:52.070
  • to his wife and the two shall
  • 00:11:52.070 --> 00:11:53.260
  • become what, one, Echadh. And
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:56.060
  • so when the Bible speaks about
  • 00:11:56.060 --> 00:11:58.150
  • God being one, it's not
  • 00:11:58.150 --> 00:12:00.090
  • speaking necessarily about a
  • 00:12:00.090 --> 00:12:02.030
  • singular unity but rather
  • 00:12:02.110 --> 00:12:05.110
  • simply about a unity, and we
  • 00:12:05.110 --> 00:12:08.070
  • see in Scripture that often
  • 00:12:08.070 --> 00:12:09.270
  • times a unity will be a
  • 00:12:09.270 --> 00:12:11.170
  • compound unity as in the case
  • 00:12:11.170 --> 00:12:13.270
  • of a man and woman becoming
  • 00:12:13.270 --> 00:12:15.100
  • one; all the pieces of the
  • 00:12:15.100 --> 00:12:16.250
  • tabernacle becoming one. In
  • 00:12:16.250 --> 00:12:18.170
  • fact, in fact, beloved ones,
  • 00:12:19.260 --> 00:12:22.260
  • when the Lord created the
  • 00:12:22.260 --> 00:12:24.170
  • world, going back to the very
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:26.180
  • first few verses of the Bible,
  • 00:12:26.180 --> 00:12:28.150
  • go with me now. Listen to
  • 00:12:28.150 --> 00:12:30.020
  • this, Genesis, chapter 1. The
  • 00:12:30.020 --> 00:12:32.180
  • Bible said, let us, get it
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:35.160
  • now, let us create man in our
  • 00:12:38.240 --> 00:12:41.240
  • image. Let us create man in
  • 00:12:43.180 --> 00:12:46.180
  • our image. Who was God talking
  • 00:12:46.180 --> 00:12:48.190
  • to there when he said let us
  • 00:12:48.190 --> 00:12:50.180
  • create man in our image? Who
  • 00:12:50.180 --> 00:12:53.090
  • is the us? Let us, the Lord
  • 00:12:54.180 --> 00:12:57.180
  • said, create man in our image.
  • 00:12:59.000 --> 00:13:02.020
  • Who is the us and who is the
  • 00:13:02.020 --> 00:13:04.180
  • our? Who is God speaking to?
  • 00:13:04.180 --> 00:13:06.280
  • Well in Rabbinic Judaism they
  • 00:13:06.280 --> 00:13:08.290
  • say that God was speaking to
  • 00:13:08.290 --> 00:13:10.040
  • the angels. He wasn't speaking
  • 00:13:10.040 --> 00:13:11.270
  • to the angels. He was
  • 00:13:11.270 --> 00:13:13.000
  • speaking, beloved, listen now,
  • 00:13:13.000 --> 00:13:15.000
  • to the fact that he has
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:17.060
  • relationship within himself.
  • 00:13:17.110 --> 00:13:20.110
  • Let us create man, get it now,
  • 00:13:21.030 --> 00:13:24.030
  • within God there is
  • 00:13:26.020 --> 00:13:28.290
  • relationship. Let us create
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:31.280
  • there is relationship, and
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:38.100
  • this is where we get the
  • 00:13:38.100 --> 00:13:39.290
  • doctrine of the Trinity from;
  • 00:13:39.290 --> 00:13:42.040
  • that within God we have
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:43.150
  • Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:47.000
  • It's one. God is one. He's a
  • 00:13:47.000 --> 00:13:49.050
  • compound unity, or a complex
  • 00:13:49.050 --> 00:13:51.160
  • unity, yet he's one God. And
  • 00:13:51.160 --> 00:13:54.030
  • within him, get it now, is
  • 00:13:54.030 --> 00:13:56.040
  • relationship that God has
  • 00:13:56.080 --> 00:13:59.080
  • relationship within himself.
  • 00:14:01.190 --> 00:14:04.190
  • That's why we have families on
  • 00:14:04.190 --> 00:14:07.190
  • earth today. Why do we have
  • 00:14:07.190 --> 00:14:09.090
  • family? Where do we get this
  • 00:14:09.090 --> 00:14:10.180
  • concept of relationship from?
  • 00:14:10.180 --> 00:14:12.110
  • Where do we get this
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:13.180
  • relationship concept between
  • 00:14:13.180 --> 00:14:15.060
  • men and women? Between parents
  • 00:14:15.060 --> 00:14:17.120
  • and children? Between people?
  • 00:14:17.120 --> 00:14:19.060
  • It all comes from the fact,
  • 00:14:19.060 --> 00:14:20.150
  • beloved one, get this now,
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:21.250
  • that within the Godhead
  • 00:14:21.250 --> 00:14:24.250
  • relationship already exists.
  • 00:14:25.250 --> 00:14:28.250
  • And so because relationship
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:31.170
  • exists within the Godhead,
  • 00:14:31.170 --> 00:14:33.050
  • because within the Godhead the
  • 00:14:33.050 --> 00:14:34.100
  • Father is always in communion
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:36.140
  • with the Son, and the Son is
  • 00:14:36.140 --> 00:14:37.260
  • always in communion with the
  • 00:14:37.260 --> 00:14:39.260
  • Father, and the Spirit is the,
  • 00:14:39.260 --> 00:14:41.170
  • the, what's holding everything
  • 00:14:41.170 --> 00:14:43.160
  • together. Because there is
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:45.060
  • relationship within the
  • 00:14:45.060 --> 00:14:46.230
  • Godhead we have the concept of
  • 00:14:46.230 --> 00:14:48.180
  • relationship woven in to
  • 00:14:48.180 --> 00:14:50.150
  • humankind that is created, get
  • 00:14:51.100 --> 00:14:54.100
  • it now, in God's image. And so
  • 00:14:54.240 --> 00:14:57.240
  • once again we see here all the
  • 00:14:57.240 --> 00:14:59.260
  • way back to John, chapter 1,
  • 00:14:59.260 --> 00:15:02.060
  • verse 1: In the beginning was
  • 00:15:02.060 --> 00:15:04.070
  • the Word, and the Word was
  • 00:15:04.070 --> 00:15:06.090
  • Beloved, as things get darker
  • 00:15:14.040 --> 00:15:16.160
  • on planet earth, I believe God
  • 00:15:16.160 --> 00:15:18.090
  • is going to use Discovering the
  • 00:15:18.090 --> 00:15:19.120
  • Jewish Jesus in even greater
  • 00:15:19.120 --> 00:15:21.050
  • ways. With the increase in
  • 00:15:21.050 --> 00:15:22.290
  • countries around the world
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:24.180
  • getting their hand on nuclear

  • weapons, the destabilization of

  • terrorism, beloved these things

  • ANNOUNCER- Now back to today's
  • 00:16:34.170 --> 00:16:37.170
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- I want to
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:40.230
  • continue on here and ask you
  • 00:16:40.230 --> 00:16:41.280
  • still kind of, you're, you're,
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:45.020
  • you're following it, you're
  • 00:16:45.020 --> 00:16:46.080
  • saying yeah, that kind of
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:47.080
  • convinced. There's nothing
  • 00:16:48.280 --> 00:16:50.290
  • that I can say that will fully
  • 00:16:50.290 --> 00:16:53.060
  • convince you because I can't
  • 00:16:53.060 --> 00:16:55.120
  • the tee. But let me say this
  • 00:16:58.220 --> 00:17:01.110
  • to you. I'm not apologizing
  • 00:17:01.110 --> 00:17:02.190
  • for not being able to fully
  • 00:17:02.190 --> 00:17:04.170
  • explain it to you. Here's the
  • 00:17:04.170 --> 00:17:06.020
  • reason why I'm not apologizing
  • 00:17:06.020 --> 00:17:07.170
  • to you and here's the reason
  • 00:17:07.170 --> 00:17:09.010
  • why you can feel free to
  • 00:17:09.010 --> 00:17:11.180
  • embrace this concept of God
  • 00:17:11.180 --> 00:17:14.150
  • being one, yet existing in
  • 00:17:14.150 --> 00:17:16.150
  • three different persons that
  • 00:17:16.150 --> 00:17:17.250
  • are distinct. Here's why you
  • 00:17:17.250 --> 00:17:19.080
  • can embrace this fully with
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:20.290
  • your heart without fully being
  • 00:17:20.290 --> 00:17:22.160
  • able to intellectually
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:23.270
  • comprehend it. Here's why you
  • 00:17:23.270 --> 00:17:25.290
  • can do that. Think about this.
  • 00:17:26.100 --> 00:17:29.100
  • You believe in God. I'm
  • 00:17:29.100 --> 00:17:30.190
  • assuming that those of you
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:31.190
  • that are watching, the vast
  • 00:17:31.190 --> 00:17:32.190
  • majority of you believe in God
  • 00:17:32.190 --> 00:17:33.220
  • right now. Some of you are
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:35.070
  • saying you don't. Even those
  • 00:17:35.070 --> 00:17:36.080
  • of you that are saying you
  • 00:17:36.080 --> 00:17:37.090
  • don't, deep down inside you
  • 00:17:37.090 --> 00:17:38.160
  • really do. I'm gonna get into
  • 00:17:38.160 --> 00:17:39.280
  • that in the weeks ahead. Think
  • 00:17:39.280 --> 00:17:41.150
  • about this. You believe in
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:42.230
  • God. I want to ask you a
  • 00:17:42.230 --> 00:17:43.280
  • question. Where did God
  • 00:17:46.020 --> 00:17:49.020
  • come from? Can you explain
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:51.090
  • logically where God came from?
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:56.240
  • Obviously you can't.
  • 00:17:56.240 --> 00:17:58.050
  • makes no sense at all that God
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:02.280
  • has always been. We cannot in
  • 00:18:02.280 --> 00:18:05.160
  • any way even remotely connect
  • 00:18:05.160 --> 00:18:08.090
  • to that intellectually. It is
  • 00:18:08.090 --> 00:18:09.180
  • beyond the intellect. Our mind
  • 00:18:09.180 --> 00:18:12.150
  • can only understand where
  • 00:18:12.150 --> 00:18:14.090
  • something has come from, get
  • 00:18:14.090 --> 00:18:15.290
  • it now, through the laws of
  • 00:18:15.290 --> 00:18:17.110
  • cause and effect. We can only
  • 00:18:17.110 --> 00:18:19.230
  • understand that this exists
  • 00:18:19.230 --> 00:18:21.190
  • because of this; that this
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:23.010
  • came from this. We can only
  • 00:18:23.010 --> 00:18:24.270
  • think through our mental
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:26.200
  • capacity thought the lens of
  • 00:18:26.200 --> 00:18:28.240
  • cause and effect. Where did
  • 00:18:28.240 --> 00:18:31.110
  • God come from? There is no
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:33.140
  • logical answer to that. He's
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:35.160
  • always been. He came from
  • 00:18:35.160 --> 00:18:37.160
  • nowhere. But we say
  • 00:18:37.160 --> 00:18:38.290
  • intellectually that's
  • 00:18:38.290 --> 00:18:40.030
  • impossible; that he's always
  • 00:18:40.030 --> 00:18:41.240
  • been. Where did he come from?
  • 00:18:41.240 --> 00:18:43.180
  • He had to come from somewhere.
  • 00:18:43.180 --> 00:18:45.100
  • But the truth is, that's
  • 00:18:45.100 --> 00:18:47.200
  • what makes God God; in the
  • 00:18:47.200 --> 00:18:49.220
  • beginning, God. God has always
  • 00:18:49.220 --> 00:18:52.060
  • been. He came from nowhere. It
  • 00:18:52.060 --> 00:18:54.000
  • is intellectually impossible
  • 00:18:54.000 --> 00:18:56.000
  • to grasp that. And every time
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:57.190
  • I remotely get touched, get
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:19:00.060
  • close to touching on that, my
  • 00:19:00.060 --> 00:19:01.260
  • mind just overloads and for
  • 00:19:01.260 --> 00:19:04.060
  • some reason my heart just
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:06.010
  • melts down in love. It must be
  • 00:19:06.040 --> 00:19:09.040
  • because God is love. And so by
  • 00:19:10.220 --> 00:19:13.220
  • virtue of the fact, beloved
  • 00:19:13.220 --> 00:19:16.050
  • one, that you and I cannot in
  • 00:19:16.050 --> 00:19:18.210
  • any way comprehend logically
  • 00:19:19.290 --> 00:19:22.290
  • the fact that God has always
  • 00:19:22.290 --> 00:19:24.070
  • been, neither should we expect
  • 00:19:24.070 --> 00:19:26.270
  • to be able to intellectually
  • 00:19:26.270 --> 00:19:29.030
  • comprehend how God is Father,
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:31.150
  • Son and Holy Spirit, and yet
  • 00:19:31.150 --> 00:19:32.260
  • he's one. You know, an
  • 00:19:32.260 --> 00:19:34.150
  • interesting illustration where
  • 00:19:34.150 --> 00:19:35.250
  • we see in the New Testament,
  • 00:19:35.250 --> 00:19:37.170
  • God manifested at the same
  • 00:19:37.170 --> 00:19:38.260
  • time in the person of the
  • 00:19:38.260 --> 00:19:40.120
  • Father, and the Son, and the
  • 00:19:40.120 --> 00:19:41.160
  • Holy Spirit is when Yeshua was
  • 00:19:41.160 --> 00:19:43.040
  • the waters, we say in Hebrew
  • 00:19:44.240 --> 00:19:45.270
  • of the Mikvah, the Mikvah
  • 00:19:45.270 --> 00:19:47.090
  • waters. And what happened when
  • 00:19:47.090 --> 00:19:49.150
  • Yeshua went into the, the
  • 00:19:49.150 --> 00:19:50.250
  • Mikvah waters when Jesus was
  • 00:19:50.250 --> 00:19:52.050
  • baptized. He went into the
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:54.050
  • out of the water. When he came
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:56.280
  • out of the water, get it now,
  • 00:19:56.280 --> 00:19:58.210
  • the Spirit manifested himself
  • 00:19:58.210 --> 00:20:00.250
  • above Jesus, visibly to John
  • 00:20:00.280 --> 00:20:03.280
  • the Baptist as a dove, right.
  • 00:20:03.280 --> 00:20:05.200
  • lighting on him and I saw the
  • 00:20:07.270 --> 00:20:10.000
  • Spirit lighting on him, John
  • 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:11.200
  • said, as a dove. So the Spirit
  • 00:20:11.200 --> 00:20:13.160
  • dove. So here we have the
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:16.240
  • Spirit. Jesus himself, the Son
  • 00:20:16.240 --> 00:20:19.180
  • of God, the second person of
  • 00:20:19.180 --> 00:20:21.180
  • the Trinity, is the one that
  • 00:20:21.180 --> 00:20:23.080
  • John sees coming out of the
  • 00:20:23.080 --> 00:20:24.260
  • water, right. So now we have
  • 00:20:24.260 --> 00:20:27.000
  • the Spirit manifested as a
  • 00:20:27.000 --> 00:20:28.250
  • dove. We have Jesus coming out
  • 00:20:28.250 --> 00:20:30.290
  • of the water in the flesh,
  • 00:20:30.290 --> 00:20:32.260
  • the Son of God, in the flesh.
  • 00:20:32.260 --> 00:20:34.100
  • And then we have the Father
  • 00:20:34.100 --> 00:20:35.210
  • speaking from heaven that John
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:37.250
  • hears the Word, this is my
  • 00:20:39.170 --> 00:20:41.230
  • Beloved Son and in him I am
  • 00:20:41.230 --> 00:20:43.280
  • well pleased. So at the
  • 00:20:43.280 --> 00:20:45.160
  • speaking, this is my Beloved
  • 00:20:46.260 --> 00:20:48.010
  • Son in whom I'm well pleased.
  • 00:20:48.010 --> 00:20:49.170
  • We have the Spirit manifested
  • 00:20:49.170 --> 00:20:51.000
  • as a dove. And we have Jesus
  • 00:20:51.000 --> 00:20:52.120
  • himself, the Son, coming out
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:54.020
  • of the water; Father, Son and
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.150
  • Holy Spirit all in the same
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:57.050
  • act. Well I want to leave you
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:20:59.120
  • this particular mystery that
  • 00:21:00.290 --> 00:21:02.180
  • God is relationship. There's
  • 00:21:02.180 --> 00:21:05.080
  • relationship in himself. And
  • 00:21:05.080 --> 00:21:07.050
  • when you and I try to define
  • 00:21:07.050 --> 00:21:09.140
  • God, we need to include in our
  • 00:21:09.140 --> 00:21:12.080
  • definition and obviously our
  • 00:21:12.080 --> 00:21:13.230
  • definitions will always fall
  • 00:21:13.230 --> 00:21:15.250
  • short, but any definition of
  • 00:21:15.250 --> 00:21:17.290
  • God that leaves out the word
  • 00:21:17.290 --> 00:21:20.060
  • relationship falls far short
  • 00:21:20.230 --> 00:21:23.230
  • of being an adequate
  • 00:21:23.230 --> 00:21:25.050
  • description of who God is.
  • 00:21:25.050 --> 00:21:26.190
  • We know God has always been.
  • 00:21:26.190 --> 00:21:29.140
  • We know he's self-existent.
  • 00:21:29.140 --> 00:21:30.180
  • We know he's omniscient.
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:34.160
  • He's all-knowing. We know he's
  • 00:21:34.160 --> 00:21:36.000
  • a God of love. We can describe
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:37.130
  • him in all these ways, and all
  • 00:21:37.130 --> 00:21:38.230
  • those ways are true. But
  • 00:21:38.230 --> 00:21:40.080
  • unless we, beloved ones,
  • 00:21:40.080 --> 00:21:41.200
  • include in our description of
  • 00:21:41.200 --> 00:21:43.230
  • God the word he is
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:45.150
  • relationship, we have fallen,
  • 00:21:45.150 --> 00:21:47.230
  • fall short of understanding
  • 00:21:47.230 --> 00:21:50.000
  • who God is. You see, Jesus
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:51.250
  • we have eternal life. And
  • 00:21:54.150 --> 00:21:57.060
  • life that you would know God
  • 00:22:00.130 --> 00:22:03.130
  • and Jesus Christ whom he has
  • 00:22:03.130 --> 00:22:06.010
  • sent. God loves you today, my
  • 00:22:06.010 --> 00:22:08.100
  • friend. He loves us today.
  • 00:22:08.100 --> 00:22:10.080
  • And as we seek his face, he's
  • 00:22:10.080 --> 00:22:11.290
  • gonna reveal more and more of
  • 00:22:11.290 --> 00:22:13.220
  • The greatest gift, beloved, that
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:22.050
  • you could ever give somebody
  • 00:22:22.050 --> 00:22:23.150
  • is to lead them to Yeshua, to
  • 00:22:23.150 --> 00:22:25.070
  • Jesus. With your continued
  • 00:22:25.070 --> 00:22:27.180
  • financial support I am reaching
