  • ROBERT MORRIS: God did not curse them
  • 00:00:02.140 --> 00:00:02.150
  • ROBERT MORRIS: God did not curse them,
  • 00:00:02.150 --> 00:00:03.210
  • He told them about the curse that they brought on themselves.
  • 00:00:03.240 --> 00:00:06.250
  • That's what happened.
  • 00:00:06.280 --> 00:00:08.070
  • God said, Now let me tell you what happened because of what
  • 00:00:08.100 --> 00:00:10.160
  • you did because I told that you would die
  • 00:00:10.190 --> 00:00:13.200
  • and this is how death has resulted in your life now.
  • 00:00:13.230 --> 00:00:15.220
  • 00:00:15.250 --> 00:00:28.200
  • ROBERT: We're beginning a new series
  • 00:00:30.170 --> 00:00:31.180
  • called Blessed Families.
  • 00:00:31.210 --> 00:00:34.070
  • Blessed Families, and I just want to say to you,
  • 00:00:34.100 --> 00:00:36.130
  • no matter what your situation is, whether you're married,
  • 00:00:36.160 --> 00:00:41.020
  • single, widowed, divorced - no matter what, God's gonna
  • 00:00:41.050 --> 00:00:44.240
  • speak to you, because we're gonna go into God's word.
  • 00:00:44.270 --> 00:00:47.130
  • But, I want to talk about the family.
  • 00:00:47.160 --> 00:00:49.090
  • I'm gonna talk about husbands and wives.
  • 00:00:49.120 --> 00:00:51.260
  • I'm gonna talk about children.
  • 00:00:51.290 --> 00:00:53.200
  • I'm gonna talk about, I don't even know
  • 00:00:53.230 --> 00:00:55.170
  • how to say this correctly.
  • 00:00:55.200 --> 00:00:57.030
  • I really am praying the Lord gives me some insight on this,
  • 00:00:57.060 --> 00:01:00.280
  • but we're gonna talk about grown children.
  • 00:01:01.010 --> 00:01:03.210
  • But today we're gonna start with The Broken Family.
  • 00:01:03.240 --> 00:01:07.060
  • And the reason we have to start here
  • 00:01:07.090 --> 00:01:08.270
  • is because we all came from a broken family.
  • 00:01:09.000 --> 00:01:12.040
  • Even if you came from a good Christian home,
  • 00:01:12.070 --> 00:01:16.200
  • your parents were still broken.
  • 00:01:16.230 --> 00:01:19.050
  • Even if they didn't separate or divorce, they're broken.
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:22.120
  • We're born broken, because we all came
  • 00:01:22.150 --> 00:01:25.140
  • from the first broken family, which is Adam and Eve.
  • 00:01:25.170 --> 00:01:29.010
  • God put Adam and Eve on this earth,
  • 00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:33.140
  • and there was something that happened
  • 00:01:33.170 --> 00:01:34.150
  • when they fell that affects you to this day.
  • 00:01:34.180 --> 00:01:38.010
  • We all have biological DNA,
  • 00:01:38.040 --> 00:01:42.020
  • biological genetic characteristics.
  • 00:01:42.050 --> 00:01:45.010
  • We all have that in our body, the biological characteristics
  • 00:01:45.040 --> 00:01:49.010
  • that we get from Adam and Eve.
  • 00:01:49.040 --> 00:01:51.020
  • We also got some spiritual DNA from them,
  • 00:01:51.050 --> 00:01:55.110
  • some spiritual genetic characteristics
  • 00:01:55.140 --> 00:02:00.070
  • that cause us to act and think a certain way.
  • 00:02:00.100 --> 00:02:02.260
  • We got that from the fall.
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:04.240
  • So, I'm gonna actually show you today
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:06.130
  • the three results of the fall -
  • 00:02:06.160 --> 00:02:09.150
  • when they fell, what came into mankind and what affects us
  • 00:02:09.180 --> 00:02:13.140
  • even to this day that we need Jesus
  • 00:02:13.170 --> 00:02:15.000
  • to help us with, all right?
  • 00:02:15.030 --> 00:02:16.140
  • So, let me make this statement.
  • 00:02:16.170 --> 00:02:20.030
  • Even though there were only two people on the earth
  • 00:02:20.060 --> 00:02:22.220
  • in Genesis 3, Adam and Eve - Cain and Abel came in Genesis 4.
  • 00:02:22.250 --> 00:02:26.280
  • Even though there were only two people,
  • 00:02:27.010 --> 00:02:28.100
  • I want to say it this way.
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:31.110
  • Every person on the earth,
  • 00:02:31.140 --> 00:02:33.100
  • and I know that was only Adam and Eve,
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:35.170
  • but every person on the earth before the fall
  • 00:02:35.200 --> 00:02:39.150
  • was in a perfect relationship with God and each other.
  • 00:02:39.180 --> 00:02:44.290
  • And in just a few verses, every person on earth
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:49.170
  • was in a broken relationship with God and each other.
  • 00:02:49.200 --> 00:02:53.250
  • That's what happened at the fall.
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:55.130
  • So, Genesis 3, look at Verse 1.
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:58.190
  • Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast
  • 00:02:58.220 --> 00:03:00.070
  • of the field which the Lord God had made.
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:02.150
  • And he said to the woman, Has God indeed said,
  • 00:03:02.180 --> 00:03:05.090
  • You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
  • 00:03:05.120 --> 00:03:08.020
  • And the woman said to the serpent,
  • 00:03:08.050 --> 00:03:09.100
  • We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden,
  • 00:03:09.130 --> 00:03:12.080
  • but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:13.220
  • of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat it,
  • 00:03:13.250 --> 00:03:16.250
  • nor shall you touch it, lest you die.
  • 00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:18.240
  • Then the serpent said to the woman,
  • 00:03:18.270 --> 00:03:20.080
  • You will not surely die.
  • 00:03:20.110 --> 00:03:22.150
  • Notice he completely misquotes God, completely.
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:26.030
  • No, you're not gonna die. He contradicts Him.
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:28.240
  • For God knows in the day you eat of it
  • 00:03:28.270 --> 00:03:30.210
  • your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God,
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:33.200
  • knowing good and evil.
  • 00:03:33.230 --> 00:03:35.040
  • So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food -
  • 00:03:35.070 --> 00:03:38.000
  • three things that she saw, and I want to point
  • 00:03:38.030 --> 00:03:40.030
  • those out in a little more detail in a moment.
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:43.010
  • That the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant
  • 00:03:43.040 --> 00:03:46.200
  • to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise,
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:51.210
  • those three things, she took of its fruit and ate.
  • 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:53.010
  • She also gave to her husband with her.
  • 00:03:53.040 --> 00:03:57.210
  • Just want you to know, Adam was right there beside her
  • 00:03:57.240 --> 00:04:00.260
  • while the devil was talking to his wife,
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:03.190
  • and never did anything about it.
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:06.250
  • So, don't ever say, men - well, you know, the women,
  • 00:04:06.280 --> 00:04:11.060
  • cause you were right there.
  • 00:04:11.090 --> 00:04:15.050
  • With her, and he ate also. All right.
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:18.070
  • Now, let me show you a Scripture and then
  • 00:04:18.100 --> 00:04:19.290
  • we're gonna go back to Verse 6.
  • 00:04:20.020 --> 00:04:21.210
  • 1 John 2:16, For all that is in the world,
  • 00:04:21.240 --> 00:04:25.270
  • now watch these three things, the lust of the flesh,
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:29.240
  • the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life -
  • 00:04:29.270 --> 00:04:33.210
  • is not of the Father, but is of the world.
  • 00:04:33.240 --> 00:04:35.290
  • Now, commit those to short term memory -
  • 00:04:36.020 --> 00:04:37.290
  • the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes,
  • 00:04:38.020 --> 00:04:40.180
  • so you've got lust in both, so you've got flesh and eyes,
  • 00:04:40.210 --> 00:04:42.200
  • and then pride.
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:45.020
  • The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes,
  • 00:04:45.050 --> 00:04:47.020
  • and the pride of life.
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:48.070
  • Now, go back and look at Verse 6. Watch this.
  • 00:04:48.100 --> 00:04:50.200
  • So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,
  • 00:04:50.230 --> 00:04:53.140
  • that's the lust of the flesh,
  • 00:04:53.170 --> 00:04:55.190
  • that it was pleasant to the eyes,
  • 00:04:55.220 --> 00:04:58.000
  • that's the lust of the eyes,
  • 00:04:58.030 --> 00:05:00.020
  • and that it was a tree desirable to make one wise,
  • 00:05:00.050 --> 00:05:03.030
  • that's the pride of life.
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:05.140
  • See, Satan doesn't have any new tricks.
  • 00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:08.010
  • And, it's the same thing from Genesis,
  • 00:05:08.040 --> 00:05:11.090
  • all the way to 1 John, to Revelation.
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:13.210
  • This is one book.
  • 00:05:13.240 --> 00:05:15.020
  • So, I just felt like I just had to point that out, so.
  • 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:19.190
  • All right, so what happened when Adam and Eve fell?
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:22.120
  • Three things entered the world when sin entered
  • 00:05:22.150 --> 00:05:25.060
  • the world that still affect us to this day.
  • 00:05:25.090 --> 00:05:27.090
  • Here's number one: shame.
  • 00:05:27.120 --> 00:05:30.160
  • Their first response, once they had sinned, was shame.
  • 00:05:30.190 --> 00:05:34.290
  • Now, we're just gonna keep reading,
  • 00:05:35.020 --> 00:05:36.130
  • so we stopped at Verse 6. Look at Verse 7.
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:37.290
  • Then the eyes of both of them were opened.
  • 00:05:38.020 --> 00:05:40.100
  • Watch the first thing they knew.
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:43.010
  • And they knew they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:47.190
  • together and made themselves coverings.
  • 00:05:47.220 --> 00:05:51.190
  • They made them themselves.
  • 00:05:51.220 --> 00:05:52.260
  • That's important, cause we're gonna see later
  • 00:05:52.290 --> 00:05:54.090
  • that what they made didn't work.
  • 00:05:54.120 --> 00:05:56.110
  • And they heard the sound of the Lord God
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:58.230
  • walking in the garden in the cool of the day,
  • 00:05:58.260 --> 00:06:00.170
  • and Adam and his wife hid themselves from
  • 00:06:00.200 --> 00:06:04.010
  • the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
  • 00:06:04.040 --> 00:06:06.110
  • Then the Lord God called to Adam and said, Where are you
  • 00:06:06.140 --> 00:06:09.120
  • So he said, I heard Your voice in the garden,
  • 00:06:09.150 --> 00:06:11.040
  • and I was afraid, because..." So, why did he have fear?
  • 00:06:11.070 --> 00:06:15.000
  • It's because he had shame.
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:16.170
  • Because I was naked, and I hid myself.
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:20.070
  • And He said, Who told you that you were naked?
  • 00:06:20.100 --> 00:06:23.160
  • And by the way, the answer to that question is,
  • 00:06:23.190 --> 00:06:25.050
  • no one had to tell him.
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:27.060
  • He had a realization of shame once sin came in the world.
  • 00:06:27.090 --> 00:06:32.030
  • Shame came in when sin came in the world. Immediately!
  • 00:06:32.060 --> 00:06:35.130
  • It's the very first thing they felt.
  • 00:06:35.160 --> 00:06:37.070
  • When sin came in, they felt shame immediately.
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:40.020
  • And, I'm sitting here reading this,
  • 00:06:40.050 --> 00:06:43.050
  • and who were they hiding from?
  • 00:06:43.080 --> 00:06:48.060
  • I mean, they were the only two people.
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:50.230
  • They had already seen each other naked.
  • 00:06:50.260 --> 00:06:53.230
  • The only other living things on the earth were animals.
  • 00:06:53.260 --> 00:06:58.190
  • I mean, were the monkeys pointing and laughing?
  • 00:06:58.220 --> 00:07:04.270
  • I don't care if the dog sees me naked.
  • 00:07:05.000 --> 00:07:08.110
  • You know? It's an animal.
  • 00:07:08.140 --> 00:07:11.180
  • I mean, it's just crazy. Here's the point.
  • 00:07:11.210 --> 00:07:14.270
  • They were hiding from God, listen, and each other.
  • 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:19.250
  • That they were ashamed for the first time ever.
  • 00:07:19.280 --> 00:07:22.270
  • They were ashamed of their nakedness.
  • 00:07:23.000 --> 00:07:26.080
  • I can remember when I grew up, I was very skinny growing up.
  • 00:07:26.110 --> 00:07:29.170
  • I've overcome that. [Laughter]
  • 00:07:29.200 --> 00:07:32.280
  • If you have a difficulty, I can teach you how to...
  • 00:07:33.010 --> 00:07:36.040
  • fried chicken and Blue Bell will take care of it,
  • 00:07:36.070 --> 00:07:40.060
  • at the same time. All right, so let's go on.
  • 00:07:40.090 --> 00:07:43.240
  • Okay, so the point is, I remember I was always afraid
  • 00:07:43.270 --> 00:07:48.210
  • that someone was gonna - now, some of you can relate to this,
  • 00:07:48.240 --> 00:07:51.050
  • but I was afraid someone was gonna walk
  • 00:07:51.080 --> 00:07:52.260
  • in when I was changing and see how skinny I was.
  • 00:07:52.290 --> 00:07:56.050
  • I don't know if any of you can ever relate to that.
  • 00:07:56.080 --> 00:07:57.240
  • Now I'm afraid they're gonna walk in and see how fat I am!
  • 00:07:57.270 --> 00:08:00.040
  • But anyway, different story. But, there was the shame.
  • 00:08:00.070 --> 00:08:05.090
  • Now, I'm not talking about a normal modesty
  • 00:08:05.120 --> 00:08:07.080
  • that we should have, but the shame.
  • 00:08:07.110 --> 00:08:09.240
  • That came with the fall.
  • 00:08:09.270 --> 00:08:11.180
  • And so, they make themselves clothes to cover their shame.
  • 00:08:11.210 --> 00:08:17.040
  • Look on down, Verse 21, watch what God does.
  • 00:08:17.070 --> 00:08:20.210
  • Also for Adam and his wife, the Lord God made
  • 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:25.030
  • tunics of skin, and clothed them.
  • 00:08:25.060 --> 00:08:30.060
  • So, they make for themselves something to cover em,
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:32.090
  • but God then makes something to cover em temporarily,
  • 00:08:32.120 --> 00:08:35.110
  • obviously until the blood of Jesus.
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:36.220
  • But, I want you to think about this.
  • 00:08:36.250 --> 00:08:38.020
  • Maybe you've never thought about this before.
  • 00:08:38.050 --> 00:08:39.090
  • God made these Himself.
  • 00:08:39.120 --> 00:08:41.130
  • He made them from animal skin, therefore He had to shed blood.
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:47.040
  • The only thing that will cover shame is blood. That's it.
  • 00:08:47.070 --> 00:08:51.210
  • This is already a type and a shadow of a blood sacrifice
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:55.080
  • that His Son was going to make, all the way back in Genesis 3.
  • 00:08:55.110 --> 00:09:00.260
  • This shame, this nakedness, this isn't something
  • 00:09:00.290 --> 00:09:04.130
  • that's in the natural, it's in the spiritual.
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:06.200
  • That's what I want you to pick up on.
  • 00:09:06.230 --> 00:09:07.260
  • Look at these verses, and again, the spiritual meanings.
  • 00:09:07.290 --> 00:09:10.290
  • Revelation 3:18, I counsel you to buy from Me
  • 00:09:11.020 --> 00:09:13.230
  • gold refined in the fire.
  • 00:09:13.260 --> 00:09:15.250
  • Now, He's not talking about gold, by the way.
  • 00:09:15.280 --> 00:09:18.110
  • He's talking about His word.
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:19.200
  • His word is more precious than gold and silver. Okay.
  • 00:09:19.230 --> 00:09:22.150
  • That you may be rich, now watch this,
  • 00:09:22.180 --> 00:09:24.240
  • and white garments.
  • 00:09:24.270 --> 00:09:27.010
  • He's not talking' about actual clothes. Watch.
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:29.200
  • That you may be clothed, that the shame
  • 00:09:29.230 --> 00:09:32.200
  • of your nakedness may not be revealed.
  • 00:09:32.230 --> 00:09:34.220
  • He's not talking about literal clothes.
  • 00:09:34.250 --> 00:09:36.130
  • Here's another verse to show you for sure, Isaiah 61:10.
  • 00:09:36.160 --> 00:09:39.070
  • For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
  • 00:09:39.100 --> 00:09:43.100
  • and He has covered me with the robe of righteousness.
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:46.260
  • It's the only thing that will cover shame
  • 00:09:46.290 --> 00:09:49.230
  • is righteousness.
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:50.240
  • But, please let me distinguish between
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:52.260
  • righteousness and righteous living.
  • 00:09:52.290 --> 00:09:56.080
  • Righteousness means right standing with God.
  • 00:09:56.110 --> 00:09:59.290
  • The only thing that will take care of your sin
  • 00:10:00.020 --> 00:10:02.040
  • and your shame is to be in a right standing,
  • 00:10:02.070 --> 00:10:04.240
  • right relationship with God, and the only way you do that
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:06.290
  • is through Jesus Christ.
  • 00:10:07.020 --> 00:10:08.280
  • But what we do many times is think,
  • 00:10:09.010 --> 00:10:11.070
  • if I can just overcome this, if I can start living better,
  • 00:10:11.100 --> 00:10:14.070
  • if I can quit falling to this, then I won't have shame.
  • 00:10:14.100 --> 00:10:18.020
  • You can do, and we should live righteously.
  • 00:10:18.050 --> 00:10:20.250
  • I'm not saying that we shouldn't.
  • 00:10:20.280 --> 00:10:22.020
  • But, I'm telling you that that won't take care of shame.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:25.270
  • The only thing that takes care of shame
  • 00:10:26.000 --> 00:10:27.150
  • is Jesus Christ. That's it.
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:29.260
  • Righteousness being deposited into your account.
  • 00:10:29.290 --> 00:10:34.010
  • You also need to know this,
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:35.150
  • sin was taken out of every person's account
  • 00:10:35.180 --> 00:10:38.180
  • in the world when Jesus died on the cross.
  • 00:10:38.210 --> 00:10:40.170
  • He died for the whole world. He died for the whole world.
  • 00:10:40.200 --> 00:10:44.020
  • Are you following me?
  • 00:10:44.050 --> 00:10:45.030
  • God's already taken care of your sin.
  • 00:10:45.060 --> 00:10:46.220
  • If you'll just believe in Jesus,
  • 00:10:46.250 --> 00:10:48.150
  • then He will deposit righteousness,
  • 00:10:48.180 --> 00:10:51.110
  • His Son's righteousness, in your account.
  • 00:10:51.140 --> 00:10:55.110
  • The problem I've noticed is that since I've gotten saved,
  • 00:10:55.140 --> 00:10:59.160
  • I've still made mistakes.
  • 00:10:59.190 --> 00:11:01.210
  • How many of you have, you know, blown your top,
  • 00:11:01.240 --> 00:11:06.080
  • or lost your cool, or said things
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:07.250
  • you shouldn't have said, or made some mistakes,
  • 00:11:07.280 --> 00:11:10.060
  • or somehow done something that you should not
  • 00:11:10.090 --> 00:11:13.130
  • have done, since you got saved?
  • 00:11:13.160 --> 00:11:16.230
  • Can I see your hands?
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:18.030
  • Every campus, every campus, put it way up high, keep it up.
  • 00:11:18.060 --> 00:11:22.000
  • Now, look around at all of the sinners
  • 00:11:22.030 --> 00:11:24.200
  • that go to Gateway Church!
  • 00:11:24.230 --> 00:11:28.200
  • Okay, here's the reason I did that!
  • 00:11:28.230 --> 00:11:31.210
  • Because Satan tells you that you're worse than anyone else,
  • 00:11:31.240 --> 00:11:36.000
  • and that you've blown it, and you know better,
  • 00:11:36.030 --> 00:11:37.280
  • and you've got the power of God now, and the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:11:38.010 --> 00:11:40.100
  • and you should and you shouldn't.
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:41.130
  • No one else deals with this stuff.
  • 00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:43.140
  • You've been saved 20 years now and you're still dealing
  • 00:11:43.170 --> 00:11:45.110
  • with this stuff. That's called being a human.
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:48.290
  • That's what it's called.
  • 00:11:49.020 --> 00:11:50.210
  • And God loves you, and He's already forgiven
  • 00:11:50.240 --> 00:11:52.220
  • all of your sin, and He's put His Son's righteousness
  • 00:11:52.250 --> 00:11:55.100
  • in your account, and that's the only way
  • 00:11:55.130 --> 00:11:57.040
  • you'll ever get over shame. That's it.
  • 00:11:57.070 --> 00:11:59.080
  • So, that's the first thing that came with the fall.
  • 00:11:59.110 --> 00:12:00.240
  • Here's the second thing: blame. Blame.
  • 00:12:00.270 --> 00:12:06.070
  • All right, so we stopped at Verse 10, now look at Verse 11.
  • 00:12:06.100 --> 00:12:09.270
  • And He said, Who told you that you were naked?
  • 00:12:10.000 --> 00:12:12.000
  • We read that first part.
  • 00:12:12.030 --> 00:12:13.150
  • Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:15.170
  • that you should not eat?
  • 00:12:15.200 --> 00:12:16.270
  • Then the man said, watch Adam's answer,
  • 00:12:17.000 --> 00:12:20.040
  • The woman... You see the blame?
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:26.030
  • And look, he blames two people with one statement.
  • 00:12:26.060 --> 00:12:29.060
  • Whom You gave to me to be with me.
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:31.130
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:33.240
  • She gave me of the tree, and I ate.
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:36.190
  • And the Lord God said to the woman,
  • 00:12:36.220 --> 00:12:38.220
  • What is this that you have done?
  • 00:12:38.250 --> 00:12:39.260
  • The woman said, The devil made me do it.
  • 00:12:39.290 --> 00:12:42.220
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:42.250 --> 00:12:44.030
  • That's where that saying came from, right there, Eve.
  • 00:12:44.060 --> 00:12:47.200
  • The devil made me do it. Do you see the blame?
  • 00:12:47.230 --> 00:12:50.180
  • Neither one of them took responsibility for their sin.
  • 00:12:50.210 --> 00:12:54.110
  • Neither one of em! This is a result of sin.
  • 00:12:54.140 --> 00:12:56.260
  • This is what happened with the fall.
  • 00:12:56.290 --> 00:12:58.280
  • This blame that you see in your children -
  • 00:12:59.010 --> 00:13:02.180
  • blaming someone else for it, putting blame on you,
  • 00:13:02.210 --> 00:13:08.020
  • or whatever.
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:09.030
  • No, no, no, you said I could,
  • 00:13:09.060 --> 00:13:10.170
  • or whatever it is? That came from Adam and Eve.
  • 00:13:10.200 --> 00:13:12.290
  • That came from our spiritual parents.
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:15.180
  • That's where we got this from.
  • 00:13:15.210 --> 00:13:17.100
  • Adam's answer is incredible - the woman that You gave me.
  • 00:13:17.130 --> 00:13:26.070
  • I was doing' fine with the chimpanzees.
  • 00:13:26.100 --> 00:13:28.070
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:13:28.100 --> 00:13:31.160
  • Everything was going' great until she showed up.
  • 00:13:31.190 --> 00:13:36.140
  • Isn't that amazing how we blame each other?
  • 00:13:36.170 --> 00:13:39.090
  • Here's another thing about blame,
  • 00:13:39.120 --> 00:13:40.230
  • and I want you to think about this.
  • 00:13:40.260 --> 00:13:42.250
  • Most of the time, we'll say this.
  • 00:13:42.280 --> 00:13:45.110
  • It's not my fault, or it's all my fault.
  • 00:13:45.140 --> 00:13:51.090
  • Either one, they're both wrong.
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:54.180
  • They're both wrong.
  • 00:13:54.210 --> 00:13:56.180
  • But, we're both trying to put blame somewhere,
  • 00:13:56.210 --> 00:13:59.280
  • and this is a result of the fall.
  • 00:14:00.030 --> 00:14:02.240
  • It's not my fault. You don't understand.
  • 00:14:02.270 --> 00:14:05.080
  • Or, think about this.
  • 00:14:05.110 --> 00:14:06.230
  • How many people live in bitterness toward others
  • 00:14:06.260 --> 00:14:10.060
  • and toward God, which is what Adam did?
  • 00:14:10.090 --> 00:14:12.230
  • It was her fault and Your fault.
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:15.290
  • You know, my boss didn't promote me.
  • 00:14:16.020 --> 00:14:18.180
  • And God, you know, I hear about this blessed life,
  • 00:14:18.210 --> 00:14:21.180
  • but you know, I'm not living' it, and so apparently,
  • 00:14:21.210 --> 00:14:25.170
  • something's wrong with me.
  • 00:14:25.200 --> 00:14:27.220
  • Don't live with blame!
  • 00:14:27.250 --> 00:14:29.190
  • It's crazy to live with blame.
  • 00:14:29.220 --> 00:14:31.050
  • When you live with blame, let me explain something to you.
  • 00:14:31.080 --> 00:14:34.120
  • Let me tell you where blame comes from, okay?
  • 00:14:34.150 --> 00:14:37.240
  • It comes from a person named Satan.
  • 00:14:37.270 --> 00:14:40.280
  • And there's another word for blame, and it's called accuser.
  • 00:14:41.010 --> 00:14:46.120
  • Revelation 12:10, Then I heard a loud voice
  • 00:14:46.150 --> 00:14:48.180
  • saying in heaven, Now salvation, and strength,
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:50.280
  • and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ
  • 00:14:51.010 --> 00:14:54.050
  • have come, for the accuser of our brethren..."
  • 00:14:54.080 --> 00:14:58.140
  • I'll tell you in a moment why I underlined our.
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:15:00.130
  • The accuser of our brethren, who accused them
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:03.150
  • before our God day and night, he never stops,
  • 00:15:03.180 --> 00:15:09.290
  • has been cast down.
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:11.030
  • So, Satan's the accuser of the brethren.
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:12.210
  • Okay, so I've made that statement a lot --
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:14.240
  • Satan is the accuser of the brethren.
  • 00:15:14.270 --> 00:15:17.020
  • For the first time in my life, and I've been studying
  • 00:15:17.050 --> 00:15:19.230
  • the Bible a long time, I saw the word our this week
  • 00:15:19.260 --> 00:15:23.110
  • when I was studying this passage.
  • 00:15:23.140 --> 00:15:24.260
  • Here's why I think that's important,
  • 00:15:24.290 --> 00:15:26.180
  • the accuser of our brethren.
  • 00:15:26.210 --> 00:15:28.200
  • Before you accuse someone, you need to remember,
  • 00:15:28.230 --> 00:15:31.260
  • that's your brother, or that's your sister.
  • 00:15:31.290 --> 00:15:36.100
  • And, you need to remember that when you accuse someone else,
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:40.240
  • you're actually acting like Satan.
  • 00:15:40.270 --> 00:15:44.210
  • That is what Satan does.
  • 00:15:44.240 --> 00:15:46.200
  • Satan is the accuser of our brethren, our brethren.
  • 00:15:46.230 --> 00:15:54.090
  • There's too much accusation going on in the body of Christ
  • 00:15:54.120 --> 00:15:56.250
  • right now, instead of love and forgiveness.
  • 00:15:56.280 --> 00:16:00.150
  • All right, so here's the third thing.
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:02.210
  • First is shame, the second is blame.
  • 00:16:02.240 --> 00:16:05.170
  • Here's the third result of the fall: fame. Fame.
  • 00:16:05.200 --> 00:16:12.050
  • Now, this isn't like wanting to be famous,
  • 00:16:12.080 --> 00:16:14.170
  • it's wanting to be recognized, wanting to be acknowledged.
  • 00:16:14.200 --> 00:16:19.110
  • It's that insecurity that all of us have,
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:23.200
  • that we need someone to recognize us.
  • 00:16:23.230 --> 00:16:26.180
  • Now, we're gonna get down to where I'm gonna show you
  • 00:16:26.210 --> 00:16:29.200
  • where I get this from, but remember, we ended at Verse 13.
  • 00:16:29.230 --> 00:16:34.090
  • Verses 14 and 15, God announces the curse
  • 00:16:34.120 --> 00:16:38.110
  • that came on the serpent because of what he did.
  • 00:16:38.140 --> 00:16:41.170
  • Verse 16 announces the curse that came on Eve,
  • 00:16:41.200 --> 00:16:44.260
  • and Verses 17 through 19 announces the curse
  • 00:16:44.290 --> 00:16:47.070
  • that came on Adam.
  • 00:16:47.100 --> 00:16:48.140
  • The reason I'm saying this, we start to Verse 30.
  • 00:16:48.170 --> 00:16:50.040
  • We're gonna pick up at Verse 20,
  • 00:16:50.070 --> 00:16:51.140
  • but I want you to know what was in between.
  • 00:16:51.170 --> 00:16:53.090
  • Let me say another thing too, by the way.
  • 00:16:53.120 --> 00:16:54.280
  • You want to get your theology straight.
  • 00:16:55.010 --> 00:16:57.260
  • God did not curse them, He told them about the curse
  • 00:16:57.290 --> 00:17:02.010
  • that they brought on themselves.
  • 00:17:02.040 --> 00:17:04.070
  • That's what happened.
  • 00:17:04.100 --> 00:17:05.170
  • God said, now let me tell you what happened
  • 00:17:05.200 --> 00:17:07.030
  • because of what you did, cause I told you that you would die,
  • 00:17:07.060 --> 00:17:10.280
  • and this is how death has resulted in your life now.
  • 00:17:11.010 --> 00:17:13.000
  • And we're gonna go into some of these,
  • 00:17:13.030 --> 00:17:14.200
  • because unfortunately, some people are still living
  • 00:17:14.230 --> 00:17:18.160
  • under those curses, which Christ came to redeem us
  • 00:17:18.190 --> 00:17:20.240
  • from those curses. So, all right.
  • 00:17:20.270 --> 00:17:23.030
  • So, He announces that, again, Verses 14 through 19, okay?
  • 00:17:23.060 --> 00:17:28.200
  • Watch what happens as soon as He finishes,
  • 00:17:28.230 --> 00:17:31.060
  • as soon as God finishes announcing this, Verse 20.
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:34.090
  • Watch what happens.
  • 00:17:34.120 --> 00:17:35.140
  • Genesis 3:20, And Adam called, Adam called,
  • 00:17:35.170 --> 00:17:39.140
  • his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother
  • 00:17:39.170 --> 00:17:43.080
  • of all living.
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:44.270
  • Now, what you're probably thinking is, well,
  • 00:17:45.000 --> 00:17:47.020
  • that's not so bad, but let's dive into this a little bit.
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:50.260
  • Eve, by the way, means life, so the mother of life,
  • 00:17:50.290 --> 00:17:54.080
  • mother of living. Okay, so what's wrong with this?
  • 00:17:54.110 --> 00:17:59.060
  • Well, you have to remember, this is after the fall
  • 00:17:59.090 --> 00:18:01.190
  • Adam gives her this name.
  • 00:18:01.220 --> 00:18:03.060
  • God did not give her the name Eve, Adam did.
  • 00:18:03.090 --> 00:18:05.180
  • But it was after the fall. It's when Adam was a sinner.
  • 00:18:05.210 --> 00:18:08.060
  • Before the fall, which is Genesis 2,
  • 00:18:08.090 --> 00:18:11.210
  • the chapter ends with Adam saying about Eve,
  • 00:18:11.240 --> 00:18:17.000
  • This is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh.
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:21.100
  • You're part of me. He says, you're part of me.
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:25.020
  • We're together. We're one.
  • 00:18:25.050 --> 00:18:27.210
  • After the fall, he says, immediately when I fall,
  • 00:18:27.240 --> 00:18:32.180
  • you're Eve. Let me say it another way.
  • 00:18:32.210 --> 00:18:36.260
  • He labeled her, and he labeled her as separate
  • 00:18:36.290 --> 00:18:41.030
  • and distinct from him.
  • 00:18:41.060 --> 00:18:44.070
  • He said, your purpose is to bear me children.
  • 00:18:44.100 --> 00:18:49.240
  • Her name was not Eve. God did not name her Eve.
  • 00:18:49.270 --> 00:18:54.040
  • A lot of people don't know what her name was before, but I do.
  • 00:18:54.070 --> 00:18:56.240
  • Scripture tells us.
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:18:58.110
  • I'm gonna read it in the Old King James first,
  • 00:18:58.140 --> 00:19:01.170
  • and then I'm gonna read it in the New King James,
  • 00:19:01.200 --> 00:19:03.010
  • cause New King James translates it literally, okay?
  • 00:19:03.040 --> 00:19:06.050
  • Here's Old King James.
  • 00:19:06.080 --> 00:19:07.250
  • Genesis 5:2, it's recounting the creation.
  • 00:19:07.280 --> 00:19:10.210
  • Male and female created He them, and blessed them,
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:14.160
  • we're talking about Blessed Families,
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:15.280
  • and called their name Adam, in the day they were created.
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:23.140
  • Okay, so what does Adam mean in the Hebrew?
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:25.130
  • It's Adam. It does not mean man.
  • 00:19:25.160 --> 00:19:27.260
  • People think it does. It means mankind.
  • 00:19:27.290 --> 00:19:30.130
  • Genesis 5:2 in the New King James says,
  • 00:19:30.160 --> 00:19:32.110
  • He created them male and female, and blessed them,
  • 00:19:32.140 --> 00:19:34.080
  • and called them Mankind in the day they were created.
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:39.260
  • Okay, I want you to think about this.
  • 00:19:39.290 --> 00:19:44.080
  • It says God makes the two one, and what God
  • 00:19:44.110 --> 00:19:49.070
  • has joined together, let no man separate.
  • 00:19:49.100 --> 00:19:53.200
  • But immediately, when sin came in the world...
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:56.030
  • before sin, Adam says, we're one.
  • 00:19:56.060 --> 00:19:59.180
  • We're one flesh.
  • 00:19:59.210 --> 00:20:00.240
  • You are bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh.
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:02.260
  • We're one flesh.
  • 00:20:02.290 --> 00:20:03.280
  • As soon as sin comes in, he says, you're separate,
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:07.230
  • you're different. You're separate from me.
  • 00:20:07.260 --> 00:20:09.260
  • And he labels her and says, this is your purpose.
  • 00:20:09.290 --> 00:20:16.170
  • Ladies have been struggling with this for 6.000 years,
  • 00:20:16.200 --> 00:20:21.060
  • since Adam did this - is my only purpose to be a mother?
  • 00:20:21.090 --> 00:20:25.240
  • Now, most ladies love being a mom, and they're created
  • 00:20:25.270 --> 00:20:29.190
  • to be great moms. They love it.
  • 00:20:29.220 --> 00:20:32.240
  • But, I'm here to tell you, that's not your only purpose.
  • 00:20:32.270 --> 00:20:35.180
  • I'd like to tell you something else, too.
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:36.290
  • That's actually not even your highest purpose
  • 00:20:37.020 --> 00:20:39.210
  • or highest calling.
  • 00:20:39.240 --> 00:20:41.150
  • [Applause] And let me tell you why.
  • 00:20:41.180 --> 00:20:43.180
  • All the ladies are clapping right now.
  • 00:20:43.210 --> 00:20:45.010
  • Praise the Lord!
  • 00:20:45.040 --> 00:20:47.060
  • Yes, I told you I was finished.
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:48.060
  • I told you we're not having any more.
  • 00:20:48.090 --> 00:20:49.170
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:20:49.200 --> 00:20:51.260
  • Okay. All right.
  • 00:20:51.290 --> 00:20:54.150
  • So, I've got to think where I am now.
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:20:58.020
  • That joke was not in the notes, but it worked out well.
  • 00:20:58.050 --> 00:21:00.230
  • [Laughter] Okay.
  • 00:21:00.260 --> 00:21:02.250
  • So, it's not your highest calling.
  • 00:21:02.280 --> 00:21:05.280
  • I have actually said, in like,
  • 00:21:06.010 --> 00:21:08.200
  • preaching on the family and marriage,
  • 00:21:08.230 --> 00:21:10.050
  • I've said our highest calling is to be a husband
  • 00:21:10.080 --> 00:21:12.070
  • and a father, for men, and our highest calling
  • 00:21:12.100 --> 00:21:14.090
  • is to be a wife and a mother. I've said that.
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:17.030
  • I don't believe that anymore.
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:19.000
  • Let me explain something.
  • 00:21:19.030 --> 00:21:20.080
  • Your highest calling is not to be a husband and a father.
  • 00:21:20.110 --> 00:21:22.110
  • Your highest calling is to be a child, a child of God.
  • 00:21:22.140 --> 00:21:28.080
  • And if you're a good child of God,
  • 00:21:28.110 --> 00:21:30.010
  • you'll be a good husband and father.
  • 00:21:30.040 --> 00:21:32.160
  • If you're a good child of God,
  • 00:21:32.190 --> 00:21:33.210
  • you'll be a good wife and a good mother.
  • 00:21:33.240 --> 00:21:35.210
  • You see what I'm saying? That's our highest calling.
  • 00:21:35.240 --> 00:21:38.170
  • So, in understanding that, that plus what else
  • 00:21:38.200 --> 00:21:42.130
  • I'm about to tell you, you need to know
  • 00:21:42.160 --> 00:21:43.270
  • that every person has a calling,
  • 00:21:44.000 --> 00:21:46.030
  • and every person has gifts from God.
  • 00:21:46.060 --> 00:21:47.180
  • Galatians says there's no male and female in Christ.
  • 00:21:47.210 --> 00:21:50.180
  • So, why would you think just your husband
  • 00:21:50.210 --> 00:21:53.110
  • has a calling from God, and your calling
  • 00:21:53.140 --> 00:21:55.180
  • is just to be the wife and mother?
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:56.190
  • This is why some women suffer from depression
  • 00:21:56.220 --> 00:21:59.130
  • when the kids are grown and move out,
  • 00:21:59.160 --> 00:22:01.260
  • because it's like their purpose has been fulfilled,
  • 00:22:01.290 --> 00:22:04.130
  • their calling is over. That's not your calling.
  • 00:22:04.160 --> 00:22:07.150
  • 1 Corinthians says that God gives to each one gifts,
  • 00:22:07.180 --> 00:22:12.180
  • different from others but for the benefit of all,
  • 00:22:12.210 --> 00:22:16.080
  • but to each. You're an each.
  • 00:22:16.110 --> 00:22:18.260
  • Male or female, you're an each.
  • 00:22:18.290 --> 00:22:20.130
  • So, every person has a gift and a call from God.
  • 00:22:20.160 --> 00:22:24.120
  • You need to know what your purpose is,
  • 00:22:24.150 --> 00:22:26.110
  • because that will fulfill you.
  • 00:22:26.140 --> 00:22:28.020
  • And what Adam did immediately was he labeled her,
  • 00:22:28.050 --> 00:22:31.030
  • and immediately there began to be this competition
  • 00:22:31.060 --> 00:22:34.200
  • and this separation between a husband and a wife.
  • 00:22:34.230 --> 00:22:37.130
  • That's why I say we all came from a broken family.
  • 00:22:37.160 --> 00:22:40.200
  • Now, they stayed married.
  • 00:22:40.230 --> 00:22:41.230
  • There wasn't anybody else on earth, you know.
  • 00:22:41.260 --> 00:22:43.250
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:22:43.280 --> 00:22:46.240
  • But there was a breaking.
  • 00:22:47.260 --> 00:22:49.070
  • Do you see this breaking? Immediately!
  • 00:22:49.100 --> 00:22:50.290
  • Before the fall, just go back and read Genesis 2, 3, and 4.
  • 00:22:51.020 --> 00:22:53.240
  • Before the fall, Genesis 2, the very last part of it,
  • 00:22:53.270 --> 00:22:56.150
  • he says, You are bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh.
  • 00:22:56.180 --> 00:22:58.170
  • You're one flesh with me.
  • 00:22:58.200 --> 00:23:00.100
  • And as soon as the fall comes, he says,
  • 00:23:00.130 --> 00:23:01.240
  • you're not Adam anymore.
  • 00:23:01.270 --> 00:23:05.030
  • You're not Adam, you're not Mankind - you're Eve.
  • 00:23:05.060 --> 00:23:07.270
  • He separates himself immediately and he labels her.
  • 00:23:08.000 --> 00:23:11.120
  • And this labeling happens, and then it goes to our kids,
  • 00:23:11.150 --> 00:23:13.200
  • because our kids then want to be noticed.
  • 00:23:13.230 --> 00:23:15.170
  • You go to Chapter 4, Cain and Abel.
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:18.250
  • Abel is noticed for his offering and Cain is not,
  • 00:23:18.280 --> 00:23:22.120
  • and Cain eventually kills Abel because of it.
  • 00:23:22.150 --> 00:23:25.110
  • You can see it in your kids.
  • 00:23:25.140 --> 00:23:26.190
  • You can see a spirit of competition.
  • 00:23:26.220 --> 00:23:28.150
  • You say to one kid, You did great.
  • 00:23:28.180 --> 00:23:30.050
  • The other kid says, What about me?
  • 00:23:30.080 --> 00:23:32.170
  • This attention, this desire for attention, came.
  • 00:23:32.200 --> 00:23:36.200
  • So, what's the answer?
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:39.000
  • What's the answer for the shame, the blame,
  • 00:23:39.030 --> 00:23:40.210
  • and the fame that all of us fall to?
  • 00:23:40.240 --> 00:23:42.190
  • The answer is Jesus Christ.
  • 00:23:42.220 --> 00:23:45.160
  • In Acts 3, the whole context is Jesus,
  • 00:23:45.190 --> 00:23:48.250
  • so you need to know that.
  • 00:23:48.280 --> 00:23:49.260
  • It's gonna talk about the seed of Abraham,
  • 00:23:49.290 --> 00:23:52.130
  • but the seed of Abraham is referring to Jesus,
  • 00:23:52.160 --> 00:23:55.250
  • and all you got to do is read Acts 3 and you'll see it.
  • 00:23:55.280 --> 00:23:57.260
  • Matter of fact, we're gonna read Verse 25 in a moment,
  • 00:23:57.290 --> 00:23:59.190
  • and Verse 26 and even before, about Verse 21,
  • 00:23:59.220 --> 00:24:02.180
  • tells you Jesus, okay?
  • 00:24:02.210 --> 00:24:04.140
  • But I want you to look at this verse, and the Lord gave me
  • 00:24:04.170 --> 00:24:07.240
  • the title, Blessed Families for this series,
  • 00:24:07.270 --> 00:24:10.180
  • and then as I'm studying for this message,
  • 00:24:10.210 --> 00:24:12.170
  • I see this verse, and I think, wow, that's pretty cool.
  • 00:24:12.200 --> 00:24:15.030
  • Acts 3:25 says, And in your seed all the families
  • 00:24:15.060 --> 00:24:21.280
  • of the earth shall be blessed
  • 00:24:22.010 --> 00:24:25.230
  • All the families... not all of the people,
  • 00:24:25.260 --> 00:24:27.000
  • all of the families.
  • 00:24:27.030 --> 00:24:28.250
  • All of the families of the earth shall be blessed.
  • 00:24:28.280 --> 00:24:30.210
  • They are blessed families.
  • 00:24:30.240 --> 00:24:32.060
  • So, it's not just that we put our trust in Jesus
  • 00:24:32.090 --> 00:24:34.030
  • for our salvation, but we continue to put our trust
  • 00:24:34.060 --> 00:24:36.210
  • in Jesus for the shame, and the blame, and the fame.
  • 00:24:36.240 --> 00:24:40.170
  • ROBERT: God really does wanna bless our families
