  • - WELCOME TO A SPECIAL EDITION
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:02.100
  • OF GOSPEL TRUTH
  • 00:00:02.100 --> 00:00:03.080
  • WITH ANDREW WOMMACK,
  • 00:00:03.080 --> 00:00:05.010
  • A TEACHING MINISTRY
  • 00:00:05.010 --> 00:00:06.010
  • THAT FOCUSES ON GOD'S
  • 00:00:06.010 --> 00:00:07.120
  • UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND GRACE.
  • 00:00:07.120 --> 00:00:10.080
  • TODAY, ANDREW CONTINUES
  • 00:00:10.080 --> 00:00:11.230
  • HIS TEACHING
  • 00:00:11.230 --> 00:00:12.160
  • ON WHO GOD IS AND WHO WE ARE,
  • 00:00:12.160 --> 00:00:15.060
  • RECORDED LIVE FROM THE 2019
  • 00:00:15.060 --> 00:00:17.250
  • GRACE AND FAITH CONFERENCE
  • 00:00:17.250 --> 00:00:19.120
  • > YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:00:20.280 --> 00:00:22.190
  • THAT YOU WERE AN ABSOLUTE MESS
  • 00:00:22.190 --> 00:00:25.130
  • BEFORE JESUS SAVED YOU.
  • 00:00:25.130 --> 00:00:27.240
  • APART FROM GOD'S INFLUENCE
  • 00:00:27.240 --> 00:00:29.160
  • IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:00:29.160 --> 00:00:30.180
  • YOU JUST DON'T REALIZE
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:32.080
  • HOW PERFECT
  • 00:00:32.080 --> 00:00:32.260
  • ALL OF OUR SINS
  • 00:00:39.070 --> 00:00:40.120
  • HAVE BEEN ATONED FOR,
  • 00:00:40.120 --> 00:00:41.110
  • PAST, PRESENT,
  • 00:00:41.110 --> 00:00:42.140
  • AND EVEN FUTURE SINS.
  • 00:00:42.140 --> 00:00:45.020
  • SINS YOU HAVEN'T EVEN
  • 00:00:45.020 --> 00:00:46.020
  • COMMITTED YET HAVE BEEN
  • 00:00:46.020 --> 00:00:48.230
  • PUT UPON THE LORD JESUS
  • 00:00:48.230 --> 00:00:50.110
  • AND HE FORGAVE YOU OF SINS
  • 00:00:50.110 --> 00:00:52.170
  • THAT YOU HAVEN'T EVEN
  • 00:00:52.170 --> 00:00:53.100
  • COMMITTED YET.
  • 00:00:53.100 --> 00:00:55.040
  • AND I KNOW SOMEBODY'S THINKING,
  • 00:00:55.040 --> 00:00:56.100
  • HOW CAN GOD FORGIVE A SIN
  • 00:00:56.100 --> 00:00:57.270
  • BEFORE I COMMIT IT?
  • 00:00:57.270 --> 00:00:59.130
  • YOU BETTER PRAY THAT HE CAN,
  • 00:00:59.180 --> 00:01:02.200
  • BECAUSE HE ONLY DIED
  • 00:01:02.200 --> 00:01:03.180
  • FOR YOUR SINS ONE TIME
  • 00:01:03.180 --> 00:01:05.000
  • 2.000 YEARS AGO,
  • 00:01:05.000 --> 00:01:06.080
  • AND IF HE CAN'T FORGIVE SINS
  • 00:01:06.080 --> 00:01:07.180
  • BEFORE YOU COMMIT THEM,
  • 00:01:07.180 --> 00:01:08.180
  • THEN YOU CAN'T BE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:01:08.180 --> 00:01:10.270
  • HE CAN FORGIVE SINS.
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:12.030
  • YOUR SINS HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN.
  • 00:01:12.030 --> 00:01:14.070
  • NOW DOES THAT MEAN
  • 00:01:14.070 --> 00:01:15.150
  • THAT YOU'RE FREE
  • 00:01:15.150 --> 00:01:16.030
  • TO GO LIVE IN SIN?
  • 00:01:16.030 --> 00:01:17.030
  • I'LL BE DEALING WITH THIS
  • 00:01:17.030 --> 00:01:18.030
  • IN MORE DETAIL, TOO,
  • 00:01:18.030 --> 00:01:19.110
  • BUT NO, EVEN THOUGH GOD IS NOT
  • 00:01:19.110 --> 00:01:21.170
  • BRINGING HIS JUDGMENT ON SIN,
  • 00:01:21.170 --> 00:01:23.250
  • SATAN GAINS INROAD TO YOU
  • 00:01:23.250 --> 00:01:25.280
  • THROUGH YOUR SIN.
  • 00:01:25.280 --> 00:01:27.010
  • SO, IF YOU GO OUT
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:27.280
  • AND ARE LIVING IN SIN,
  • 00:01:27.280 --> 00:01:30.000
  • SATAN IS GOING TO EAT YOUR LUNCH
  • 00:01:30.000 --> 00:01:31.270
  • THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:36.250
  • SO, YOU DO NOT WANT
  • 00:01:36.250 --> 00:01:37.270
  • TO LIVE IN SIN.
  • 00:01:37.270 --> 00:01:40.260
  • IT'S JUST STUPID;
  • 00:01:40.260 --> 00:01:41.260
  • QUIT LIVING IN SIN.
  • 00:01:41.260 --> 00:01:43.020
  • BUT WHAT I'M SAYING IS,
  • 00:01:43.020 --> 00:01:44.010
  • GOD LOVES YOU, STUPID,
  • 00:01:44.010 --> 00:01:45.250
  • AMEN.
  • 00:01:45.250 --> 00:01:46.240
  • HE'S NOT HOLDING YOUR SINS
  • 00:01:46.240 --> 00:01:48.010
  • AGAINST YOU,
  • 00:01:48.010 --> 00:01:48.170
  • BUT SATAN WILL MAKE YOU PAY
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:50.080
  • IF YOU'RE LIVING IN SIN,
  • 00:01:50.080 --> 00:01:51.140
  • SO QUIT DOING IT.
  • 00:01:51.140 --> 00:01:53.280
  • AND SO, SOME PEOPLE ARE SAYING,
  • 00:01:53.280 --> 00:01:55.130
  • WELL, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:01:55.130 --> 00:01:56.150
  • BUT THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:57.170
  • SHOWS GOD JUDGING PEOPLE.
  • 00:01:57.170 --> 00:01:59.140
  • FOR INSTANCE,
  • 00:01:59.140 --> 00:01:59.290
  • ISAIAH, CHAPTER 59,
  • 00:01:59.290 --> 00:02:01.260
  • VERSES 1 AND 2, SAYS,
  • 00:02:01.260 --> 00:02:03.060
  • MY HAND IS NOT SHORTENED,
  • 00:02:03.060 --> 00:02:04.180
  • THAT IT CANNOT SAVE;
  • 00:02:04.180 --> 00:02:05.170
  • NOR MY EAR HEAVY,
  • 00:02:05.170 --> 00:02:06.200
  • THAT IT CANNOT HEAR,
  • 00:02:06.200 --> 00:02:08.220
  • BUT YOUR INIQUITIES
  • 00:02:08.220 --> 00:02:09.280
  • HAVE SEPARATED
  • 00:02:09.280 --> 00:02:10.240
  • BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD...
  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:14.000
  • AND SO...IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 00:02:14.000 --> 00:02:16.010
  • GOD WAS SEPARATED FROM MAN
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:18.220
  • OVER SIN,
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:19.160
  • AND BECAUSE OF IT,
  • 00:02:19.160 --> 00:02:20.170
  • THERE WAS JUDGMENT UPON SIN.
  • 00:02:20.170 --> 00:02:22.120
  • I CAN SHOW YOU INSTANCES
  • 00:02:22.120 --> 00:02:23.230
  • WHERE GOD SENT A DEATH ANGEL OUT
  • 00:02:23.230 --> 00:02:25.180
  • AND KILLED 183.000 MEN
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:29.220
  • IN ONE NIGHT IN THE SYRIAN ARMY.
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:32.140
  • I CAN SHOW YOU WHERE GOD
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:33.130
  • STRUCK PEOPLE WITH LEPROSY,
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:35.120
  • WHERE THINGS HAPPENED,
  • 00:02:35.120 --> 00:02:37.090
  • AND PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:02:37.090 --> 00:02:37.250
  • WELL, MAN, THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:38.270
  • GOD IS LOVE;
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:39.220
  • THAT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE LOVE
  • 00:02:39.220 --> 00:02:40.270
  • TO ME.
  • 00:02:40.270 --> 00:02:42.010
  • WELL, IN THE OLD COVENANT,
  • 00:02:42.010 --> 00:02:43.230
  • THERE WAS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
  • 00:02:43.230 --> 00:02:44.290
  • THE WAY GOD DEALS WITH SIN
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:46.200
  • AND THE WAY HE DEALS WITH IT NOW
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:48.080
  • AND I'LL GO INTO MORE
  • 00:02:48.080 --> 00:02:49.190
  • EXPLANATION ON THIS LATER
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:51.050
  • AS WE GET FURTHER INTO IT,
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:52.200
  • BUT BASICALLY THE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:02:52.200 --> 00:02:54.020
  • IS THAT YOU AND I ARE NOW
  • 00:02:54.020 --> 00:02:56.050
  • NEW CREATURES,
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:58.230
  • AND BECAUSE WE...ONE TRANSLATION
  • 00:02:58.230 --> 00:03:01.060
  • OF 2 CORINTHIANS, CHAPTER 5,
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:02.280
  • VERSE 17, SAYS,
  • 00:03:02.280 --> 00:03:04.150
  • YOU ARE A NEW SPECIES OF BEING
  • 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:07.050
  • THAT NEVER EXISTED BEFORE,
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:09.080
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT,
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:10.110
  • GOD CAN TREAT YOU DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:03:10.110 --> 00:03:12.160
  • THAN HE COULD TREAT
  • 00:03:12.160 --> 00:03:13.090
  • AN OLD TESTAMENT PERSON
  • 00:03:13.090 --> 00:03:14.270
  • WHO WAS LIVING UNDER THE LAW
  • 00:03:14.270 --> 00:03:17.000
  • AND WAS BASICALLY
  • 00:03:17.000 --> 00:03:18.060
  • GETTING WHAT YOU DESERVED.
  • 00:03:18.060 --> 00:03:20.040
  • WE DON'T GET WHAT WE DESERVE
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:21.170
  • TODAY.
  • 00:03:21.170 --> 00:03:22.010
  • WE GET WHAT JESUS DESERVES,
  • 00:03:22.010 --> 00:03:24.270
  • AND SO SOME PEOPLE SAYS,
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:25.230
  • WELL, IS HE THE GOD
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:27.060
  • OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:28.060
  • OR THE GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT?
  • 00:03:28.060 --> 00:03:29.230
  • IS HE ANGRY,
  • 00:03:29.230 --> 00:03:31.000
  • OR IS HE IN A GOOD MOOD TODAY?
  • 00:03:31.000 --> 00:03:33.260
  • WELL, THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:03:33.260 --> 00:03:34.220
  • THAT HE'S THE LORD
  • 00:03:34.220 --> 00:03:35.280
  • AND HE CHANGES NOT,
  • 00:03:35.280 --> 00:03:37.170
  • MALACHI 3:6; I AM THE LORD,
  • 00:03:37.170 --> 00:03:39.190
  • I CHANGE NOT;
  • 00:03:39.190 --> 00:03:40.180
  • THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:42.030
  • ARE NOT CONSUMED.
  • 00:03:42.030 --> 00:03:43.200
  • HEBREWS, CHAPTER 13, VERSE 8,
  • 00:03:43.200 --> 00:03:45.270
  • JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY,
  • 00:03:45.270 --> 00:03:47.180
  • TO DAY, AND FOR EVER.
  • 00:03:47.180 --> 00:03:49.150
  • SO, SOME PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:03:49.150 --> 00:03:50.080
  • WELL, HOW DO YOU RECONCILE
  • 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:51.160
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:03:51.160 --> 00:03:52.110
  • AND THE NEW TESTAMENT?
  • 00:03:52.110 --> 00:03:53.280
  • IT'S BECAUSE GOD DIDN'T
  • 00:03:53.280 --> 00:03:56.280
  • GIVE THE LAW,
  • 00:03:56.280 --> 00:03:58.010
  • SO THAT YOU COULD KEEP IT,
  • 00:03:58.010 --> 00:03:59.280
  • AND THIS IS ONE OF THE BIG
  • 00:03:59.280 --> 00:04:01.160
  • MISTAKES THAT PEOPLE MAKE
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:03.070
  • WHEN THEY ARE READING THE WORD
  • 00:04:03.070 --> 00:04:04.290
  • AND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT GOD.
  • 00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:06.140
  • THEY SEE THE WRATH
  • 00:04:06.140 --> 00:04:07.240
  • AND THE PUNISHMENT OF GOD
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:09.230
  • AND THEY JUST ASSUME THAT GOD
  • 00:04:09.230 --> 00:04:11.220
  • IS THIS HARD, ANGRY GOD,
  • 00:04:12.280 --> 00:04:15.280
  • BUT YOU KNOW THE SCRIPTURE SAYS
  • 00:04:15.280 --> 00:04:17.150
  • THAT HE CHANGES NOT.
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:18.290
  • HE HASN'T CHANGED,
  • 00:04:18.290 --> 00:04:21.080
  • BUT WE HAVE CHANGED,
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:22.250
  • AND GOD DEALS WITH
  • 00:04:22.250 --> 00:04:24.070
  • NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVERS
  • 00:04:24.070 --> 00:04:26.000
  • DIFFERENTLY THAN HE DEALT WITH
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.140
  • OLD TESTAMENT BELIEVERS.
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:29.000
  • LET ME JUST GIVE YOU
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:29.210
  • SOME QUICK EXAMPLES HERE.
  • 00:04:29.210 --> 00:04:31.200
  • IN LEVITICUS, CHAPTER 20,
  • 00:04:31.200 --> 00:04:33.050
  • VERSE 10, IT SAYS,
  • 00:04:33.050 --> 00:04:34.180
  • THE MAN THAT COMMITTETH ADULTERY
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:36.230
  • WITH ANOTHER MAN'S WIFE,
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:38.100
  • EVEN HE THAT COMMITTETH ADULTERY
  • 00:04:38.100 --> 00:04:40.000
  • WITH HIS NEIGHBOUR'S WIFE,
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:41.090
  • THE ADULTERER AND THE ADULTERESS
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:43.090
  • SHALL SURELY BE PUT TO DEATH.
  • 00:04:43.090 --> 00:04:46.030
  • THAT'S LEVITICUS 20:10.
  • 00:04:46.030 --> 00:04:47.250
  • DEUTERONOMY 22:22, SAYS,
  • 00:04:47.250 --> 00:04:49.280
  • IF A MAN BE FOUND
  • 00:04:49.280 --> 00:04:51.000
  • LYING WITH A WOMAN MARRIED
  • 00:04:51.000 --> 00:04:52.200
  • TO A HUSBAND,
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:54.030
  • THEN THEY SHALL
  • 00:04:54.030 --> 00:04:55.130
  • BOTH OF THEM DIE,
  • 00:04:55.130 --> 00:04:56.230
  • BOTH THE MAN THAT LAY
  • 00:04:56.230 --> 00:04:57.290
  • WITH THE WOMAN,
  • 00:04:57.290 --> 00:04:59.080
  • AND THE WOMAN:
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:04:59.270
  • SO SHALT THOU PUT AWAY EVIL
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:02.140
  • FROM ISRAEL.
  • 00:05:02.140 --> 00:05:03.120
  • THAT WAS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:05:03.120 --> 00:05:04.170
  • AND THIS WAS HOW GOD
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:05.250
  • COMMANDED SIN TO BE DEALT WITH,
  • 00:05:05.250 --> 00:05:08.000
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT,
  • 00:05:08.000 --> 00:05:08.270
  • THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:09.270
  • THAT JUST HAVE THIS HATRED
  • 00:05:09.290 --> 00:05:12.290
  • FOR ANYBODY
  • 00:05:12.290 --> 00:05:13.250
  • WHO HAS COMMITTED ADULTERY.
  • 00:05:13.250 --> 00:05:15.250
  • NOW WE NEED TO HATE ADULTERY,
  • 00:05:15.250 --> 00:05:17.290
  • BECAUSE ADULTERY IS BAD.
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:19.220
  • IT GIVES SATAN AN INROAD
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:21.020
  • INTO OUR LIFE,
  • 00:05:21.020 --> 00:05:22.030
  • IT...IT CAUSES ALL KINDS
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:23.160
  • OF DAMAGE,
  • 00:05:23.160 --> 00:05:24.150
  • BUT LOOK AT HOW JESUS DEALT WITH
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:26.150
  • A WOMAN TAKEN
  • 00:05:26.150 --> 00:05:27.090
  • IN THE VERY ACT OF ADULTERY
  • 00:05:27.090 --> 00:05:28.200
  • IN JOHN, CHAPTER 8,
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:30.220
  • AND SHE WAS BROUGHT TO JESUS
  • 00:05:30.220 --> 00:05:32.100
  • AND THE SCRIBES
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:33.010
  • AND THE PHARISEES,
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:33.270
  • THEY HATED JESUS
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.010
  • AND THEY WERE TRYING
  • 00:05:35.010 --> 00:05:35.240
  • TO ENTRAP HIM,
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:36.160
  • AND THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD HIM,
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:37.170
  • BECAUSE OF THESE VERSES
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:38.190
  • I JUST READ TO YOU.
  • 00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:40.000
  • ACCORDING TO THE LAW,
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:40.280
  • YOU HAD TO KILL ANY PERSON
  • 00:05:40.280 --> 00:05:43.080
  • WHO COMMITTED ADULTERY
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:44.170
  • AND IF YOU DIDN'T KILL THEM,
  • 00:05:44.170 --> 00:05:47.000
  • THEN YOU COULD BE KILLED
  • 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:48.180
  • FOR NOT UPHOLDING AND ENFORCING
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:50.240
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:05:50.240 --> 00:05:52.000
  • SO, THEY BROUGHT THIS WOMAN,
  • 00:05:52.000 --> 00:05:53.040
  • TAKEN IN THE VERY ACT
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:54.030
  • OF ADULTERY,
  • 00:05:54.030 --> 00:05:55.060
  • AND THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD JESUS.
  • 00:05:55.060 --> 00:05:56.290
  • HERE'S WHAT THE LAW SAYS,
  • 00:05:56.290 --> 00:05:58.020
  • JESUS, BUT WHAT DO YOU SAY?
  • 00:05:58.020 --> 00:06:00.120
  • AND JESUS JUST BENT OVER
  • 00:06:00.120 --> 00:06:01.230
  • AND WROTE ON THE GROUND,
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:02.230
  • LIKE HE DIDN'T EVEN HEAR THEM
  • 00:06:02.230 --> 00:06:03.260
  • AT FIRST,
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:05.030
  • AND FINALLY, THEY KEPT
  • 00:06:05.030 --> 00:06:06.020
  • PRESSING HIM,
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:06.200
  • WHAT DO YOU SAY?
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:07.120
  • THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD HIM,
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:09.000
  • AND HE STOOD UP AND HE SAID,
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:10.050
  • HE THAT'S WITHOUT SIN AMONG YOU,
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:12.220
  • LET HIM CAST THE FIRST STONE.
  • 00:06:12.220 --> 00:06:15.130
  • AND OF COURSE, NONE OF THEM
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:16.250
  • WERE WITHOUT SIN,
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:18.010
  • AND IT SAYS, THEY LEFT,
  • 00:06:18.010 --> 00:06:19.130
  • BEING CONVICTED
  • 00:06:19.130 --> 00:06:20.250
  • OF THEIR OWN CONSCIENCE...
  • 00:06:20.250 --> 00:06:23.140
  • THEIR OWN HEART SHOWED THEM
  • 00:06:23.140 --> 00:06:25.020
  • THAT THERE WASN'T A ONE OF THEM
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:26.090
  • THAT WAS WITHOUT SIN,
  • 00:06:26.090 --> 00:06:27.150
  • AND SO ALL OF THE ACCUSERS LEFT.
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:29.220
  • NOW, JESUS DID NOT SAY
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:31.270
  • THAT WHAT SHE DID WASN'T SIN.
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:34.290
  • MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:06:34.290 --> 00:06:35.130
  • HE EVEN TOLD HER, HE SAYS,
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:38.170
  • WHERE'S ALL OF YOUR ACCUSERS?
  • 00:06:38.170 --> 00:06:39.270
  • AND SHE SAID, NO MAN, LORD.
  • 00:06:39.270 --> 00:06:42.100
  • AND JESUS SAID UNTO HER,
  • 00:06:42.100 --> 00:06:43.180
  • NEITHER DO I CONDEMN YOU:
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:45.080
  • GO, AND SIN NO MORE;
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:46.240
  • THAT'S IN VERSE 11.
  • 00:06:46.240 --> 00:06:48.150
  • SO, HE CALLED IT SIN.
  • 00:06:48.150 --> 00:06:50.020
  • IT WAS SIN WHAT SHE DID,
  • 00:06:50.020 --> 00:06:51.210
  • BUT HE DIDN'T ENFORCE
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:53.020
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT WRATH.
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:54.230
  • HOW COULD HE GET BY
  • 00:06:54.230 --> 00:06:55.230
  • WITH DOING THAT?
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:58.030
  • SEE, THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT GOD
  • 00:06:58.030 --> 00:07:00.240
  • NEVER WANTED TO HOLD OUR SINS
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:02.230
  • AGAINST US.
  • 00:07:02.230 --> 00:07:04.170
  • IN ROMANS, CHAPTER 5,
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:05.270
  • IT SAYS, THAT SIN IS NOT IMPUTED
  • 00:07:06.120 --> 00:07:09.120
  • WHEN THERE IS NO LAW.
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.200
  • THIS TELLS YOU WHY
  • 00:07:11.200 --> 00:07:13.020
  • GOD WAITED 2.000 YEARS
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:15.220
  • UNTIL THE TIME OF MOSES
  • 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:17.070
  • BEFORE HE GAVE
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:18.060
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT LAW,
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:19.070
  • BECAUSE HE DIDN'T WANT
  • 00:07:19.070 --> 00:07:20.040
  • TO HOLD OUR SINS AGAINST US.
  • 00:07:20.040 --> 00:07:22.250
  • THE VERY FIRST PERSON
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:23.240
  • THAT SINNED AFTER ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:25.210
  • WAS CAIN, THEIR SON,
  • 00:07:25.210 --> 00:07:26.290
  • AND CAIN KILLED
  • 00:07:26.290 --> 00:07:28.000
  • HIS BROTHER, ABEL,
  • 00:07:28.000 --> 00:07:29.290
  • AND WHEN GOD FOUND OUT ABOUT IT,
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:31.170
  • GOD WAS TALKING TO HIM
  • 00:07:31.170 --> 00:07:32.210
  • AND CAIN SAYS,
  • 00:07:32.210 --> 00:07:34.170
  • I HAVE NOWHERE TO GO,
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:35.190
  • I'LL BE A VAGABOND.
  • 00:07:35.190 --> 00:07:36.200
  • EVERY PERSON THAT TRIES TO...
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:38.060
  • EVERY PERSON THAT FINDS ME
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:39.170
  • WILL TRY AND KILL ME.
  • 00:07:39.170 --> 00:07:41.050
  • AND GOD SET A MARK UPON CAIN
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:44.190
  • AND SAID, IF ANY MAN AVENGES
  • 00:07:44.240 --> 00:07:47.240
  • ABEL'S DEATH,
  • 00:07:47.240 --> 00:07:48.220
  • I'LL AVENGE YOUR DEATH
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:50.210
  • SEVENFOLD.
  • 00:07:50.210 --> 00:07:52.190
  • GOD PROTECTED
  • 00:07:52.190 --> 00:07:53.240
  • THE VERY FIRST MURDERER
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:55.250
  • THAT WAS ON THE FACE
  • 00:07:55.250 --> 00:07:56.200
  • OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:57.080
  • BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT LATER
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:07:59.080
  • ONCE THE LAW WAS GIVEN
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:00.220
  • THE VERY FIRST PERSON
  • 00:08:00.220 --> 00:08:01.210
  • WHO BROKE THE LAW
  • 00:08:01.210 --> 00:08:03.080
  • WAS A MAN WHO PICKED UP STICKS
  • 00:08:03.080 --> 00:08:05.170
  • ON THE SABBATH DAY,
  • 00:08:05.170 --> 00:08:06.130
  • SO THAT HE COULD MAKE A FIRE
  • 00:08:06.130 --> 00:08:07.170
  • AND COOK HIM A MEAL,
  • 00:08:07.170 --> 00:08:09.230
  • AND WHAT DID THEY DO WITH HIM?
  • 00:08:09.230 --> 00:08:11.160
  • THEY BROUGHT HIM BEFORE THE LORD
  • 00:08:11.160 --> 00:08:12.250
  • BECAUSE IT WAS SAID,
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:13.250
  • THAT YOU HAD TO KEEP
  • 00:08:13.250 --> 00:08:14.190
  • THE SABBATH,
  • 00:08:14.190 --> 00:08:15.100
  • BUT IT DIDN'T SAY, SPECIFICALLY,
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:16.280
  • WHAT THE PUNISHMENT
  • 00:08:16.280 --> 00:08:17.250
  • FOR THAT WAS.
  • 00:08:17.250 --> 00:08:19.060
  • AND SO, THEY SHUT HIM UP
  • 00:08:19.060 --> 00:08:20.130
  • AND THEY ASKED GOD
  • 00:08:20.130 --> 00:08:21.090
  • WHAT THEY SHOULD DO
  • 00:08:21.090 --> 00:08:22.140
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:23.040
  • STONE HIM TO DEATH, KILL HIM.
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:25.200
  • CAN YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:08:25.200 --> 00:08:26.240
  • BEFORE THE LAW
  • 00:08:26.240 --> 00:08:27.260
  • WHEN GRACE WAS REIGNING
  • 00:08:27.260 --> 00:08:29.120
  • AND AFTER THE LAW?
  • 00:08:29.120 --> 00:08:30.100
  • BEFORE THE LAW,
  • 00:08:30.100 --> 00:08:31.190
  • CAIN KILLED HIS BROTHER ABEL
  • 00:08:31.190 --> 00:08:33.220
  • AND HE WAS PROTECTED.
  • 00:08:33.220 --> 00:08:35.060
  • NOT...IT WASN'T GOD APPROVING
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:37.180
  • OF WHAT HE DID,
  • 00:08:37.180 --> 00:08:38.080
  • BUT GOD EXTENDED MERCY AND GRACE
  • 00:08:38.080 --> 00:08:40.280
  • AND PROTECTED HIM.
  • 00:08:40.280 --> 00:08:42.010
  • BUT THE FIRST PERSON
  • 00:08:42.010 --> 00:08:42.290
  • WHO BROKE THE LAW
  • 00:08:42.290 --> 00:08:43.270
  • WAS A MAN WHO PICKED UP STICKS
  • 00:08:43.270 --> 00:08:45.080
  • AND THEY SAID, PUT HIM TO DEATH.
  • 00:08:45.080 --> 00:08:47.180
  • ONCE THE LAW WAS GIVEN,
  • 00:08:47.180 --> 00:08:49.080
  • GOD HELD PEOPLE'S SINS
  • 00:08:49.080 --> 00:08:51.090
  • AGAINST THEM,
  • 00:08:51.090 --> 00:08:52.170
  • AND HERE IS THE REASON
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:53.210
  • THAT HE BASICALLY DID THAT.
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:08:55.160
  • THIS IS A MISCONCEPTION
  • 00:08:55.160 --> 00:08:56.230
  • THAT PEOPLE HAVE.
  • 00:08:56.230 --> 00:08:57.220
  • THEY THINK THAT THE LAW
  • 00:08:57.220 --> 00:08:59.010
  • WAS GIVEN FOR ME TO KEEP.
  • 00:08:59.030 --> 00:09:02.050
  • THAT WASN'T THE PURPOSE
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:03.030
  • OF THE LAW.
  • 00:09:03.030 --> 00:09:04.160
  • NOW, THERE IS BENEFIT IN KEEPING
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:06.210
  • THE LAW AS MUCH AS YOU CAN,
  • 00:09:06.210 --> 00:09:08.140
  • BUT NOBODY CAN KEEP IT PERFECTLY
  • 00:09:08.140 --> 00:09:11.040
  • AND IT SAYS IN JAMES, CHAPTER 2,
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:12.280
  • VERSE 10,
  • 00:09:12.280 --> 00:09:13.200
  • IF YOU KEEP THE WHOLE LAW,
  • 00:09:13.200 --> 00:09:16.010
  • AND YET OFFEND IN ONE POINT,
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:18.190
  • YOU BECOME GUILTY OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:09:19.020 --> 00:09:22.020
  • IT'S NOT LIKE IF YOU
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:23.030
  • MAKE 99 OUT OF 100 QUESTIONS
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:25.250
  • AND YOU GET 99 RIGHT,
  • 00:09:25.250 --> 00:09:27.100
  • YOU DON'T GET 99 ON GOD'S TEST;
  • 00:09:27.100 --> 00:09:29.040
  • YOU GET A ZERO.
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:31.110
  • IF YOU MISS ONE THING;
  • 00:09:31.110 --> 00:09:33.180
  • IF YOU BREAK ANY PR...PRECEPT
  • 00:09:33.180 --> 00:09:35.200
  • OF THE LAW,
  • 00:09:35.200 --> 00:09:36.170
  • YOU BECOME GUILTY OF IT ALL.
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:38.290
  • GOD DID NOT GIVE THE LAW,
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:40.280
  • SO THAT YOU COULD KEEP IT,
  • 00:09:40.280 --> 00:09:42.070
  • AND, THEREBY, EARN RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:09:42.070 --> 00:09:43.280
  • WITH GOD,
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:44.140
  • BUT GOD GAVE THE LAW
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:46.000
  • TO REVEAL SIN TO US.
  • 00:09:46.000 --> 00:09:48.180
  • ROMANS, CHAPTER 3, VERSE 20,
  • 00:09:48.180 --> 00:09:50.180
  • BY THE LAW IS THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:09:50.180 --> 00:09:52.210
  • OF SIN.
  • 00:09:52.210 --> 00:09:53.270
  • THE LAW WAS GIVEN TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:09:53.270 --> 00:09:56.000
  • YOUR SIN.
  • 00:09:56.000 --> 00:09:57.000
  • AND GOD DIDN'T WANT US TO KNOW
  • 00:09:57.000 --> 00:09:58.230
  • HOW SINFUL WE WERE
  • 00:09:58.230 --> 00:09:59.280
  • IN THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:09:59.280 --> 00:10:01.170
  • YOU KNOW, IF HE WANTED TO,
  • 00:10:01.170 --> 00:10:02.200
  • HE COULD HAVE SHOWN
  • 00:10:02.200 --> 00:10:03.180
  • ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:10:03.180 --> 00:10:05.040
  • LOOK WHAT YOUR SIN DID,
  • 00:10:05.040 --> 00:10:07.100
  • AND IF HE JUST WENT DOWN
  • 00:10:07.100 --> 00:10:08.160
  • EVERY PERSON HERE
  • 00:10:08.160 --> 00:10:10.120
  • AND SHOWED THE PAIN
  • 00:10:10.120 --> 00:10:11.240
  • AND THE SUFFERING AND THE DEATH
  • 00:10:11.240 --> 00:10:14.110
  • THAT HAS HAPPENED
  • 00:10:14.110 --> 00:10:14.290
  • IN EVERY PERSON'S LIFE,
  • 00:10:14.290 --> 00:10:16.070
  • I DON'T THINK THAT ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:10:16.070 --> 00:10:18.020
  • COULD HAVE LASTED.
  • 00:10:18.020 --> 00:10:19.260
  • I DON'T THINK
  • 00:10:19.260 --> 00:10:20.110
  • THAT THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE
  • 00:10:20.110 --> 00:10:21.030
  • TO HANDLE IT.
  • 00:10:21.030 --> 00:10:21.290
  • IF HE WOULD HAVE SHOWN THEM
  • 00:10:21.290 --> 00:10:22.230
  • WHAT HITLER DID,
  • 00:10:22.230 --> 00:10:24.150
  • THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, STALIN,
  • 00:10:24.150 --> 00:10:26.200
  • THE TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:10:26.200 --> 00:10:28.150
  • THAT WERE MURDERED AND THINGS.
  • 00:10:28.150 --> 00:10:30.190
  • IF HE WOULD HAVE SHOWN
  • 00:10:30.190 --> 00:10:31.180
  • ALL OF THAT TO ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:32.220
  • THEY COULDN'T HAVE HANDLED IT.
  • 00:10:32.220 --> 00:10:33.230
  • HE DIDN'T WANT THEM TO KNOW
  • 00:10:33.230 --> 00:10:34.290
  • HOW BAD A SINNER THEY WERE,
  • 00:10:34.290 --> 00:10:36.200
  • AND HE WAS WILLING
  • 00:10:36.200 --> 00:10:37.220
  • TO EXTEND GRACE UNTO MANKIND,
  • 00:10:37.280 --> 00:10:40.280
  • BUT MANKIND BEGAN
  • 00:10:40.280 --> 00:10:42.090
  • TO TAKE GOD'S LACK OF PUNISHMENT
  • 00:10:42.090 --> 00:10:45.010
  • AS APPROVAL.
  • 00:10:45.010 --> 00:10:47.070
  • THEY BEGAN TO LOSE
  • 00:10:47.070 --> 00:10:48.100
  • THEIR SENSE OF RIGHT AND WRONG,
  • 00:10:48.100 --> 00:10:50.110
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:50.280
  • COMPARING THEMSELVES
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:52.020
  • AMONG THEMSELVES
  • 00:10:52.020 --> 00:10:53.050
  • AND MEASURING THEMSELVES
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:54.120
  • BY THEMSELVES,
  • 00:10:54.120 --> 00:10:55.080
  • WHICH THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:56.090
  • IS NOT WISE.
  • 00:10:56.090 --> 00:10:58.040
  • BUT YOU CAN SEE THIS
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:10:58.270
  • IN THE 4TH CHAPTER,
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:10:59.230
  • OF THE BOOK OF GENESIS,
  • 00:10:59.230 --> 00:11:01.230
  • THAT CAIN HAD KILLED ABEL,
  • 00:11:01.230 --> 00:11:04.220
  • AND THEN IN THAT SAME CHAPTER,
  • 00:11:04.220 --> 00:11:06.080
  • GENESIS, CHAPTER 4,
  • 00:11:06.080 --> 00:11:08.000
  • CAIN'S GREAT-GREAT-GREAT
  • 00:11:08.000 --> 00:11:10.030
  • GRANDSON, LAMECH,
  • 00:11:10.030 --> 00:11:11.190
  • COMES ALONG AND KILLS A MAN
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:13.000
  • IN SELF-DEFENSE,
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:14.210
  • AND HE FELT SO MUCH MORE
  • 00:11:14.210 --> 00:11:16.080
  • JUSTIFIED IN HIS MURDER
  • 00:11:16.080 --> 00:11:17.280
  • THAN WHAT CAIN WAS THAT HE SAID,
  • 00:11:17.280 --> 00:11:19.170
  • IF GOD AVENGES CAIN SEVENFOLD,
  • 00:11:19.170 --> 00:11:22.110
  • HE'LL AVENGE LAMECH
  • 00:11:22.110 --> 00:11:23.200
  • SEVENTY AND SEVENFOLD.
  • 00:11:23.200 --> 00:11:25.260
  • BUT SEE, THAT WAS WRONG.
  • 00:11:25.260 --> 00:11:26.240
  • GOD DIDN'T SAY THAT;
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:27.190
  • THAT WAS LAMECH.
  • 00:11:27.190 --> 00:11:28.160
  • HE WAS COMPARING HIMSELF
  • 00:11:28.160 --> 00:11:29.200
  • WITH CAIN AND THINKING,
  • 00:11:29.200 --> 00:11:30.250
  • CAIN GOT BY WITH MURDER,
  • 00:11:30.250 --> 00:11:32.130
  • SURELY I'LL GET BY WITH MURDER,
  • 00:11:32.130 --> 00:11:34.120
  • AND OVER A PERIOD OF TIME,
  • 00:11:34.120 --> 00:11:35.110
  • THERE JUST BEGAN TO BE MURDER,
  • 00:11:35.110 --> 00:11:36.250
  • THERE BEGAN TO BE RAPE,
  • 00:11:36.250 --> 00:11:38.010
  • THERE BEGAN TO BE LAWLESSNESS
  • 00:11:38.010 --> 00:11:39.240
  • AND PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:11:39.240 --> 00:11:40.100
  • COMPARING THEMSELVES.
  • 00:11:40.100 --> 00:11:43.020
  • AND I KNOW SOME OF YOU
  • 00:11:43.020 --> 00:11:43.290
  • ARE THINKING,
  • 00:11:43.290 --> 00:11:44.090
  • WELL, HOW TERRIBLE WAS THAT?
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:46.160
  • MAN, WE ARE DOING
  • 00:11:46.160 --> 00:11:48.130
  • THE EXACT SAME THING.
  • 00:11:48.130 --> 00:11:51.030
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE WHO ARE ROYALTY,
  • 00:11:51.030 --> 00:11:53.100
  • PEOPLE WHO ARE MOVIE STARS,
  • 00:11:53.100 --> 00:11:55.250
  • PEOPLE WHO ARE...ARE ATHLETES
  • 00:11:55.250 --> 00:11:58.040
  • AND FAMOUS
  • 00:11:58.040 --> 00:11:58.280
  • AND MAKING LOTS OF MONEY,
  • 00:11:58.280 --> 00:12:00.030
  • THEY LIVE IN SIN
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:01.120
  • AND IT DOESN'T SEEM
  • 00:12:01.120 --> 00:12:02.000
  • TO BOTHER THEM,
  • 00:12:02.000 --> 00:12:03.010
  • AND SO, WE'VE LOWERED
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:03.290
  • OUR STANDARDS,
  • 00:12:03.290 --> 00:12:05.190
  • AND TODAY WE HAVE PARADES
  • 00:12:05.190 --> 00:12:07.060
  • ANNOUNCING GAY PRIDE
  • 00:12:07.060 --> 00:12:08.190
  • AND PEOPLE JUST, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:12:08.190 --> 00:12:10.070
  • PUMPING THEIR FIST
  • 00:12:10.070 --> 00:12:11.020
  • IN THE FACE OF GOD
  • 00:12:11.020 --> 00:12:12.090
  • AND THINGS ARE CHANGING.
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:13.170
  • AND TODAY MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:15.020
  • ARE MORE INFLUENCED
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:16.080
  • BY THEIR CULTURE THAN THEY ARE
  • 00:12:16.080 --> 00:12:17.240
  • BY THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:17.240 --> 00:12:20.240
  • SO, FOR THAT REASON,
  • 00:12:20.240 --> 00:12:22.220
  • GOD GAVE THE LAW TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:12:22.280 --> 00:12:25.280
  • WHAT SIN WAS,
  • 00:12:25.280 --> 00:12:27.100
  • SO THAT YOU WOULD QUIT GOING OUT
  • 00:12:27.100 --> 00:12:29.130
  • AND JUST LIVING IN SIN,
  • 00:12:29.130 --> 00:12:31.110
  • AND ALSO TO TAKE AWAY
  • 00:12:31.110 --> 00:12:33.220
  • THE SELF-SALVATION,
  • 00:12:33.220 --> 00:12:36.100
  • SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:12:36.100 --> 00:12:38.050
  • THAT RELIGIOUS PEOPLE HAD,
  • 00:12:38.050 --> 00:12:40.170
  • BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT
  • 00:12:40.170 --> 00:12:42.240
  • OF RELIGIOUS PEOPLE THAT THINK,
  • 00:12:42.240 --> 00:12:44.040
  • WELL, I'M BETTER THAN
  • 00:12:44.040 --> 00:12:45.030
  • THIS PERSON OVER HERE.
  • 00:12:45.030 --> 00:12:46.100
  • I FAST TWICE IN THE WEEK,
  • 00:12:46.100 --> 00:12:47.190
  • I PAY TITHES OF MINT
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:48.280
  • AND ANISE AND CUMIN.
  • 00:12:48.280 --> 00:12:50.120
  • THAT'S WHAT THE PHARISEE SAID,
  • 00:12:50.120 --> 00:12:51.220
  • SEE, ABOUT THE PUBLICAN
  • 00:12:51.220 --> 00:12:53.080
  • OVER HERE.
  • 00:12:53.080 --> 00:12:54.060
  • BUT GOD SAID THAT THE PHARISEE
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:55.250
  • WASN'T JUSTIFIED;
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:57.010
  • THE PUBLICAN WAS THE ONE
  • 00:12:57.010 --> 00:12:58.110
  • WHO WAS JUSTIFIED,
  • 00:12:58.110 --> 00:12:59.060
  • BECAUSE HE SAYS, GOD,
  • 00:12:59.060 --> 00:13:00.110
  • HAVE MERCY ON ME, A SINNER.
  • 00:13:00.110 --> 00:13:02.160
  • AND SO, TO BRING PEOPLE
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:05.170
  • OUT OF THAT DECEPTION
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:07.180
  • AND TO LET THEM SEE
  • 00:13:07.180 --> 00:13:09.090
  • THAT THEY CAN'T TRUST
  • 00:13:09.090 --> 00:13:10.210
  • IN THEMSELVES,
  • 00:13:10.210 --> 00:13:11.140
  • GOD GAVE THE LAW,
  • 00:13:11.140 --> 00:13:13.160
  • THAT YOU MIGHT BE DOING
  • 00:13:13.160 --> 00:13:14.220
  • BETTER THAN I AM,
  • 00:13:14.220 --> 00:13:17.080
  • YOU MIGHT BE LIVING
  • 00:13:17.080 --> 00:13:17.290
  • HOLIER THAN ME
  • 00:13:17.290 --> 00:13:18.260
  • OR HOLIER THAN SOMEBODY ELSE,
  • 00:13:18.260 --> 00:13:20.080
  • BUT WHO WANTS TO
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:20.260
  • BE THE BEST SINNER
  • 00:13:20.260 --> 00:13:21.220
  • ALL HAVE SINNED,
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:24.070
  • AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:25.120
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:13:25.120 --> 00:13:26.230
  • IF YOU MISS HEAVEN
  • 00:13:26.230 --> 00:13:27.200
  • BY AN INCH,
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:28.280
  • YOU MISS IT BY A MILE.
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.230
  • YOU CAN'T JUST BE GOOD.
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:32.090
  • YOU CAN'T DO YOUR BEST.
  • 00:13:32.090 --> 00:13:33.250
  • YOU EITHER HAVE TO BE PERFECT
  • 00:13:33.250 --> 00:13:35.230
  • OR YOU NEED A SAVIOR
  • 00:13:35.230 --> 00:13:37.170
  • WHO DIED FOR YOU
  • 00:13:37.170 --> 00:13:38.220
  • WHO DIED FOR YOU
  • 00:13:38.220 --> 00:13:40.280
  • [CLAPPING]
  • 00:13:40.290 --> 00:13:44.290
  • AND SO, THERE WERE A LOT
  • 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:46.100
  • OF PEOPLE...LIKE ME,
  • 00:13:46.100 --> 00:13:47.160
  • I'VE NEVER GOTTEN DRUNK
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:48.230
  • IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:13:48.230 --> 00:13:49.210
  • I'VE NEVER GONE OUT
  • 00:13:49.210 --> 00:13:50.230
  • AND USED PROFANITY,
  • 00:13:50.230 --> 00:13:52.040
  • I'VE NEVER DONE ALL OF
  • 00:13:52.040 --> 00:13:53.250
  • THESE THINGS
  • 00:13:53.250 --> 00:13:54.100
  • THAT PEOPLE TALK ABOUT,
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:56.170
  • AND YET, I NEEDED SALVATION.
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:13:59.070
  • HOW DOES GOD REACH
  • 00:13:59.070 --> 00:14:00.090
  • A RELIGIOUS PERSON
  • 00:14:00.090 --> 00:14:01.150
  • WHO'S GOOD ENOUGH
  • 00:14:01.150 --> 00:14:02.210
  • THAT THEY THINK,
  • 00:14:02.210 --> 00:14:03.090
  • WELL, S...YOU KNOW,
  • 00:14:03.090 --> 00:14:04.000
  • COMPARED TO OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:14:04.000 --> 00:14:04.280
  • I'M OKAY?
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:06.090
  • GOD GAVE SUCH A STANDARD
  • 00:14:06.090 --> 00:14:08.070
  • THAT WAS SO FAR BEYOND OUR REACH
  • 00:14:08.070 --> 00:14:10.260
  • THAT IT MADE YOU DESPAIR
  • 00:14:10.260 --> 00:14:12.190
  • OF SELF-SALVATION.
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:15.040
  • YOU KNOW, IF IT WAS JUST
  • 00:14:15.040 --> 00:14:15.280
  • UP TO YOU AND YOU'RE SAYING,
  • 00:14:15.280 --> 00:14:16.270
  • WELL, I BELIEVE I'M BASICALLY
  • 00:14:16.270 --> 00:14:18.130
  • A GOOD PERSON...
  • 00:14:18.130 --> 00:14:19.230
  • I DON'T KNOW IF ANY OF YOU
  • 00:14:19.230 --> 00:14:20.180
  • HAVE EVER SEEN THESE INTERVIEWS
  • 00:14:20.180 --> 00:14:21.250
  • THAT RAY COMFORT DOES?
  • 00:14:21.250 --> 00:14:23.290
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE THAT
  • 00:14:23.290 --> 00:14:24.220
  • OVER HERE,
  • 00:14:24.220 --> 00:14:25.070
  • BUT IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:26.270
  • RAY COMFORT IS JUST REALLY GOOD,
  • 00:14:26.270 --> 00:14:28.220
  • AND HE'LL GO UP TO PEOPLE
  • 00:14:28.220 --> 00:14:29.230
  • ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES
  • 00:14:29.230 --> 00:14:31.070
  • AND HE HAS A MICROPHONE
  • 00:14:31.070 --> 00:14:32.250
  • IN HIS HAND AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:14:32.250 --> 00:14:34.160
  • SO, DO YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:14:34.160 --> 00:14:36.080
  • THAT GOOD PEOPLE
  • 00:14:36.080 --> 00:14:38.140
  • GO TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:14:38.140 --> 00:14:40.050
  • AND THEY'LL...OH YEAH.
  • 00:14:40.050 --> 00:14:42.090
  • DID YOU KNOW IT JUST SO HAPPENS
  • 00:14:42.090 --> 00:14:43.120
  • THAT OUR PRESENT POPE SAID,
  • 00:14:43.120 --> 00:14:45.210
  • THAT EVEN AN ATHEIST,
  • 00:14:45.210 --> 00:14:47.020
  • IF THEY'RE A GOOD PERSON,
  • 00:14:47.020 --> 00:14:48.030
  • WILL GO TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:14:49.230 --> 00:14:52.230
  • THAT'S WRONG.
  • 00:14:52.230 --> 00:14:53.220
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:14:53.220 --> 00:14:54.210
  • REVEALS ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:14:54.210 --> 00:14:56.220
  • SO, THIS RAY COMFORT
  • 00:14:56.220 --> 00:14:57.150
  • WILL ASK PEOPLE AND SAYS,
  • 00:14:57.150 --> 00:14:58.130
  • DO YOU BELIEVE GOOD PEOPLE
  • 00:14:58.130 --> 00:14:59.120
  • GO TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:14:59.120 --> 00:14:59.290
  • OH, YES.
  • 00:14:59.290 --> 00:15:00.210
  • DO YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:15:00.210 --> 00:15:01.040
  • YOU'RE A GOOD PERSON?
  • 00:15:01.040 --> 00:15:01.280
  • OH, YES, I'M A GOOD PERSON.
  • 00:15:01.280 --> 00:15:03.140
  • SO, ARE YOU GOING TO GO HEAVEN?
  • 00:15:03.140 --> 00:15:04.140
  • OH, YEAH, I'LL GO TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:15:04.140 --> 00:15:06.270
  • AND THEN HE'LL SAY,
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:07.120
  • WELL, HAVE YOU EVER LIED?
  • 00:15:07.120 --> 00:15:10.020
  • WELL, YES, I'VE LIED.
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:12.260
  • AND THEN HE'LL READ
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:13.240
  • TO THEM...IT SAYS, ALL LIARS
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:15.260
  • WILL HAVE THEIR PART
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:17.010
  • IN THE LAKE OF FIRE
  • 00:15:17.010 --> 00:15:18.080
  • WHICH BURNS FOREVER.
  • 00:15:18.080 --> 00:15:20.290
  • AND HE'LL QUOTE THAT VERSE
  • 00:15:20.290 --> 00:15:21.270
  • TO THEM AND THEY'LL SAY,
  • 00:15:21.270 --> 00:15:22.240
  • SO, HAVE YOU LIE...?
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:23.170
  • WELL, YES.
  • 00:15:23.170 --> 00:15:24.220
  • SO, ALL LIARS WILL GO TO HELL;
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:28.020
  • ARE YOU GOING TO GO...
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:29.080
  • ARE YOU GOOD ENOUGH THEN?
  • 00:15:29.080 --> 00:15:30.170
  • AND THEY'LL START DOUBTING IT,
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:31.290
  • AND THEN HE'LL START MENTIONING
  • 00:15:31.290 --> 00:15:33.030
  • OTHER THINGS.
  • 00:15:33.030 --> 00:15:33.200
  • IF YOU HATE YOUR NEIGHBOR
  • 00:15:33.200 --> 00:15:35.140
  • IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:15:35.140 --> 00:15:36.030
  • YOU'RE GUILTY OF MURDER.
  • 00:15:36.030 --> 00:15:37.110
  • IF YOU LUST AFTER A PERSON
  • 00:15:37.110 --> 00:15:39.000
  • IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:15:39.000 --> 00:15:40.030
  • YOU'RE GUILTY OF ADULTERY,
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:41.160
  • AND HE'LL JUST GO THROUGH
  • 00:15:41.160 --> 00:15:42.170
  • AND NAME THESE THINGS,
  • 00:15:42.170 --> 00:15:43.160
  • AND PRETTY SOON,
  • 00:15:43.160 --> 00:15:44.070
  • THEY'LL BE SAYING,
  • 00:15:44.070 --> 00:15:45.170
  • YOU KNOW, I DON'T THINK
  • 00:15:45.170 --> 00:15:46.160
  • I AM GOING TO GO TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:15:46.160 --> 00:15:47.250
  • THAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF THE LAW
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:49.290
  • WAS TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:15:49.290 --> 00:15:50.260
  • THAT IF YOU THINK YOU'RE GOOD,
  • 00:15:50.260 --> 00:15:52.260
  • ARE YOU PERFECT?
  • 00:15:52.260 --> 00:15:54.160
  • IT SAYS, IN ROMANS 3:23,
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:56.030
  • ALL HAVE SINNED,
  • 00:15:56.030 --> 00:15:57.000
  • AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY
  • 00:15:57.000 --> 00:15:58.140
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:15:58.140 --> 00:15:59.210
  • GOD'S STANDARD ISN'T OUR
  • 00:15:59.210 --> 00:16:01.260
  • PRESENT-DAY STANDARD.
  • 00:16:01.260 --> 00:16:04.220
  • TODAY, WE ALLOW HOMOSEXUALITY,
  • 00:16:04.220 --> 00:16:06.260
  • WE ALLOW ADULTERY,
  • 00:16:06.260 --> 00:16:08.070
  • WE ALLOW LOWING...LYING,
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:10.160
  • AND STEALING,
  • 00:16:10.160 --> 00:16:11.080
  • AND JUST ALL KINDS OF THINGS.
  • 00:16:11.080 --> 00:16:13.020
  • AND WE HAVE LOWERED THE BAR
  • 00:16:13.020 --> 00:16:14.240
  • SO FAR THAT NEARLY ANYBODY
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:17.010
  • CAN STEP OVER
  • 00:16:17.010 --> 00:16:18.090
  • THE MORALITY THING.
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:20.000
  • YOU KNOW, AGAIN,
  • 00:16:20.000 --> 00:16:20.200
  • IF YOU ARE SETTING
  • 00:16:20.200 --> 00:16:22.020
  • YOUR OWN STANDARDS
  • 00:16:22.020 --> 00:16:23.210
  • AND YOU'RE SAYING, I BELIEVE
  • 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:24.220
  • THAT THIS IS ACCEPTABLE;
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:26.170
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:16:26.170 --> 00:16:27.210
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT GOD REVEALED,
  • 00:16:27.210 --> 00:16:29.270
  • I DON'T CARE ABOUT
  • 00:16:29.270 --> 00:16:30.130
  • GOD'S MORALITY,
  • 00:16:30.130 --> 00:16:31.190
  • HERE'S WHAT MY STANDARD
  • 00:16:31.190 --> 00:16:32.230
  • OF MORALITY IS.
  • 00:16:32.230 --> 00:16:33.260
  • THEN YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:16:33.260 --> 00:16:34.160
  • YOU ARE MAKING YOURSELF GOD.
  • 00:16:34.160 --> 00:16:37.010
  • GOD'S THE ONLY ONE
  • 00:16:37.010 --> 00:16:37.250
  • THAT HAS A RIGHT
  • 00:16:37.250 --> 00:16:38.180
  • TO SET WHAT RIGHT AND WRONG IS.
  • 00:16:38.180 --> 00:16:40.100
  • HE'S THE ONE THAT CREATED US,
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:42.010
  • AND WHEN YOU CHANGE THE RULES
  • 00:16:42.010 --> 00:16:44.010
  • AND YOU SAY, I THINK
  • 00:16:44.010 --> 00:16:44.240
  • THAT THIS IS OKAY,
  • 00:16:44.240 --> 00:16:47.000
  • WELL THEN, YOU'VE PUT YOURSELF
  • 00:16:47.000 --> 00:16:48.000
  • IN GOD'S PLACE;
  • 00:16:48.000 --> 00:16:49.270
  • IT'S IDOLATRY.
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:52.280
  • THANK YOU FOR THAT
  • 00:16:52.280 --> 00:16:53.210
  • THUNDEROUS SILENCE.
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:56.250
  • I KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:57.250
  • IS COUNTERING OUR CULTURE,
  • 00:16:57.250 --> 00:17:00.200
  • BUT I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:17:00.200 --> 00:17:01.080
  • THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:17:01.080 --> 00:17:03.010
  • REVEALS ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:17:03.010 --> 00:17:04.040
  • SO, RAY COMFORT WILL ASK
  • 00:17:04.040 --> 00:17:05.050
  • ALL OF THESE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:05.050 --> 00:17:05.290
  • AND, EVENTUALLY,
  • 00:17:05.290 --> 00:17:06.190
  • THEY'LL BE SAYING,
  • 00:17:06.190 --> 00:17:07.060
  • OH MAN, I NEED SALVATION.
  • 00:17:07.060 --> 00:17:09.050
  • THAT'S WHAT THE PURPOSE
  • 00:17:09.050 --> 00:17:09.230
  • OF THE LAW WAS FOR
  • 00:17:09.230 --> 00:17:11.040
  • WAS TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:17:11.040 --> 00:17:12.210
  • THAT GOD'S STANDARD IS HIGHER
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:14.120
  • THAN YOU CAN MAKE.
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:15.160
  • HERE'S MAN'S STANDARD DOWN HERE
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:17.100
  • AND YOU COULD FALL ACROSS IT.
  • 00:17:17.100 --> 00:17:19.280
  • THERE'S NO PROBLEM AT ALL.
  • 00:17:19.280 --> 00:17:21.050
  • GOD'LL JUST RAISE THE BAR,
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:22.200
  • SO HIGH THAT IT'LL MAKE YOU SAY,
  • 00:17:22.200 --> 00:17:24.240
  • WELL, GOD, IF THIS
  • 00:17:24.240 --> 00:17:25.280
  • IS THE STANDARD THAT YOU
  • 00:17:25.280 --> 00:17:27.040
  • CONSIDER TO BE NORMAL,
  • 00:17:27.040 --> 00:17:29.000
  • WELL THEN, GOD, HAVE MERCY
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:30.180
  • ON ME, A SINNER.
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:31.200
  • THAT'S THE PURPOSE OF THE LAW.
  • 00:17:31.200 --> 00:17:33.140
  • SO, THE REASON I SAY ALL OF THIS
  • 00:17:33.140 --> 00:17:34.250
  • IS TO SHOW YOU THAT THE REASON
  • 00:17:34.250 --> 00:17:36.130
  • GOD REVEALED HIS WRATH
  • 00:17:36.130 --> 00:17:38.290
  • AGAINST SIN WAS BECAUSE
  • 00:17:38.290 --> 00:17:41.220
  • HE HAD TO SHOW US WHAT SIN WAS,
  • 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:43.290
  • BECAUSE WE WERE
  • 00:17:43.290 --> 00:17:44.180
  • COMPARING OURSELVES
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:45.150
  • AMONG OURSELVES
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:46.100
  • AND WE WERE LOSING SIGHT
  • 00:17:46.100 --> 00:17:48.170
  • OF WHAT TRUE MORALITY WAS,
  • 00:17:48.170 --> 00:17:51.130
  • AND HE HAD TO TAKE AWAY
  • 00:17:51.130 --> 00:17:53.260
  • OUR SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:55.140
  • SO THAT YOU WOULD QUIT
  • 00:17:55.140 --> 00:17:56.170
  • TRUSTING IN YOURSELF
  • 00:17:56.170 --> 00:17:57.240
  • AND COMPARING YOURSELF
  • 00:17:57.240 --> 00:17:58.270
  • WITH OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:58.270 --> 00:18:00.190
  • BUT, REMEMBER,
  • 00:18:00.190 --> 00:18:01.110
  • THAT FOR 2.000 YEARS
  • 00:18:01.110 --> 00:18:03.160
  • GOD DID NOT REVEAL THAT WRATH.
  • 00:18:03.190 --> 00:18:06.190
  • MATTER OF FACT, THESE VERSES,
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:07.240
  • I THINK I GOT SIDE-TRACKED HERE,
  • 00:18:07.240 --> 00:18:09.090
  • BUT I READ THESE VERSES
  • 00:18:09.090 --> 00:18:11.010
  • ABOUT ADULTERY,
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:12.100
  • DID YOU KNOW
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:12.210
  • THAT ABRAHAM BROKE
  • 00:18:12.210 --> 00:18:14.260
  • LEVITICUS, CHAPTER 18,
  • 00:18:14.260 --> 00:18:16.160
  • WHICH SAYS THAT IF YOU MARRY
  • 00:18:16.160 --> 00:18:17.270
  • A HALF-SISTER,
  • 00:18:17.270 --> 00:18:20.170
  • THEN IT'S PUNISHABLE BY DEATH?
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:22.240
  • SARAH WAS ABRAHAM'S HALF-SISTER,
  • 00:18:23.160 --> 00:18:26.160
  • AND YET, HE DIDN'T HAVE GOD
  • 00:18:26.160 --> 00:18:28.030
  • REBUKE HIM.
  • 00:18:28.030 --> 00:18:28.220
  • MATTER OF FACT, GOD CALLED HIM
  • 00:18:28.220 --> 00:18:30.000
  • A FRIEND OF GOD.
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:31.230
  • THE ONLY PERSON
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:32.150
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:18:32.150 --> 00:18:33.110
  • THAT WAS CALLED A FRIEND OF GOD
  • 00:18:33.110 --> 00:18:34.230
  • AND IT WAS A MAN WHO WAS LIVING
  • 00:18:34.230 --> 00:18:36.000
  • IN A SEXUAL ABOMINATION
  • 00:18:36.000 --> 00:18:37.250
  • ACCORDING TO LEVITICUS,
  • 00:18:37.250 --> 00:18:39.000
  • CHAPTER 18.
  • 00:18:39.000 --> 00:18:40.170
  • AND IF YOU BROKE THOSE STANDARDS
  • 00:18:40.170 --> 00:18:41.280
  • IN LEVITICUS 18,
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:43.020
  • YOU HAD TO BE PUT TO DEATH.
  • 00:18:43.020 --> 00:18:44.200
  • ABRAHAM WASN'T PUT TO DEATH;
  • 00:18:44.200 --> 00:18:46.000
  • HE BECAME THE PATRIARCH,
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:47.190
  • BECAUSE IT WAS BEFORE GOD
  • 00:18:47.190 --> 00:18:49.180
  • STARTED HOLDING MAN'S SINS
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:51.180
  • AGAINST THEM.
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:52.090
  • HE WAS DEALING WITH
  • 00:18:52.090 --> 00:18:53.080
  • THE HUMAN RACE IN MERCY
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:55.220
  • AND IN GRACE,
  • 00:18:55.220 --> 00:18:56.180
  • BECAUSE THAT'S THE WAY
  • 00:18:56.180 --> 00:18:57.120
  • THAT GOD WANTED
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:18:58.130
  • TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE,
  • 00:18:58.130 --> 00:18:59.280
  • BUT PEOPLE WERE TAKING
  • 00:18:59.280 --> 00:19:01.050
  • HIS LACK OF PUNISHMENT
  • 00:19:01.050 --> 00:19:03.050
  • AS APPROVAL,
  • 00:19:03.050 --> 00:19:04.160
  • AND THEREFORE,
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:05.070
  • JUST LIVING IN SIN,
  • 00:19:05.070 --> 00:19:06.220
  • AND SO, GOD HAD TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:19:06.220 --> 00:19:09.220
  • TO RESTRAIN THE AMOUNT OF SIN.
  • 00:19:09.220 --> 00:19:12.110
  • AND THEN ALSO, JACOB CAME ALONG,
  • 00:19:12.110 --> 00:19:14.240
  • WHO WAS ABRAHAM'S GRANDSON,
  • 00:19:14.240 --> 00:19:17.070
  • AND JACOB MARRIED TWO WOMEN
  • 00:19:17.070 --> 00:19:20.010
  • WHO WERE SISTERS,
  • 00:19:20.010 --> 00:19:21.190
  • AND HERE'S WHAT IT SAYS,
  • 00:19:21.190 --> 00:19:23.010
  • IN GENESIS, CHAPTER 29,
  • 00:19:23.010 --> 00:19:25.220
  • VERSE 16.
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:26.210
  • IT SAYS, AND LABAN HAD
  • 00:19:26.210 --> 00:19:27.280
  • TWO DAUGHTERS:
  • 00:19:27.280 --> 00:19:28.250
  • THE NAME OF THE ELDER
  • 00:19:28.250 --> 00:19:29.170
  • WAS LEAH...
  • 00:19:29.170 --> 00:19:30.070
  • THE NAME OF THE YOUNGER
  • 00:19:30.070 --> 00:19:31.040
  • WAS RACHEL,
  • 00:19:31.040 --> 00:19:32.150
  • AND JACOB MARRIED
  • 00:19:32.150 --> 00:19:34.050
  • LEAH AND RACHEL,
  • 00:19:34.050 --> 00:19:36.150
  • AND ACCORDING TO
  • 00:19:36.150 --> 00:19:37.120
  • LEVITICUS 18:18, IT SAYS,
  • 00:19:37.120 --> 00:19:39.120
  • NEITHER SHALT THOU
  • 00:19:39.120 --> 00:19:40.060
  • TAKE A WIFE TO HER SISTER,
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:41.280
  • TO VEX HER,
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:42.270
  • TO UNCOVER HER NAKEDNESS,
  • 00:19:42.270 --> 00:19:44.140
  • BESIDE THE OTHER
  • 00:19:44.140 --> 00:19:45.240
  • IN HER LIFE TIME,
  • 00:19:45.240 --> 00:19:46.260
  • AND YET, JACOB DID IT,
  • 00:19:46.260 --> 00:19:48.080
  • AND GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:19:48.080 --> 00:19:48.280
  • JACOB WRESTLED WITH AN ANGEL
  • 00:19:48.280 --> 00:19:51.020
  • IN GENESIS, CHAPTER 32,
  • 00:19:51.020 --> 00:19:53.170
  • AND ACTUALLY CAME OUT AHEAD
  • 00:19:53.170 --> 00:19:55.090
  • AND THE ANGEL BLESSED HIM.
  • 00:19:55.090 --> 00:19:57.230
  • HERE'S A MAN WHO WAS LIVING
  • 00:19:57.230 --> 00:19:58.280
  • IN A SEXUAL ABOMINATION
  • 00:19:58.280 --> 00:20:01.010
  • THAT WAS SO STRONG WITH GOD
  • 00:20:01.010 --> 00:20:03.020
  • THAT HE PREVAILED AGAINST
  • 00:20:03.020 --> 00:20:04.110
  • AN ANGEL,
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:06.200
  • AND WON A BLESSING.
  • 00:20:06.200 --> 00:20:09.030
  • AND IF HE WOULD HAVE LIVED
  • 00:20:09.030 --> 00:20:09.280
  • UNDER THE LAW,
  • 00:20:09.280 --> 00:20:10.180
  • HE WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:20:10.180 --> 00:20:11.030
  • PUT TO DEATH.
  • 00:20:11.030 --> 00:20:13.040
  • GOD WAS NOT IMPUTING MAN'S SINS
  • 00:20:13.040 --> 00:20:15.060
  • UNTO THEM
  • 00:20:15.060 --> 00:20:15.230
  • AND THE VERY FACT
  • 00:20:15.230 --> 00:20:16.140
  • THAT HE WAITED 2.000 YEARS
  • 00:20:16.140 --> 00:20:18.010
  • TO DO IT SHOWS YOU
  • 00:20:18.010 --> 00:20:19.020
  • THAT THIS WASN'T GOD'S FIRST
  • 00:20:19.020 --> 00:20:21.050
  • AND BEST CHOICE.
  • 00:20:21.050 --> 00:20:22.250
  • HE WAS WILLING TO DEAL IN MERCY,
  • 00:20:22.250 --> 00:20:24.220
  • BUT PEOPLE WERE TAKING
  • 00:20:24.220 --> 00:20:25.230
  • HIS LACK OF PUNISHMENT
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:28.030
  • AND THEY WERE U...
  • 00:20:28.030 --> 00:20:29.080
  • THEY WERE LOSING THEIR SENSE
  • 00:20:29.080 --> 00:20:30.120
  • OF RIGHT AND WRONG
  • 00:20:30.120 --> 00:20:31.160
  • AND THEY WERE THINKING,
  • 00:20:31.160 --> 00:20:32.120
  • I'M GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:20:32.120 --> 00:20:33.070
  • SO, GOD GAVE THE LAW
  • 00:20:33.070 --> 00:20:35.210
  • TO SHOW US HOW UNGODLY WE WERE,
  • 00:20:36.030 --> 00:20:39.030
  • AND IT CAUSED SOME PROBLEMS.
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:41.110
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU ALL HAVE IT
  • 00:20:41.110 --> 00:20:42.110
  • OVER HERE,
  • 00:20:42.110 --> 00:20:42.280
  • BUT IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:20:42.280 --> 00:20:44.070
  • IF...IF THEY ADVERTISE
  • 00:20:44.070 --> 00:20:46.010
  • THESE MEDICINES,
  • 00:20:46.010 --> 00:20:47.110
  • IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:20:47.110 --> 00:20:48.110
  • WE'VE GOT LAWS THAT SAYS,
  • 00:20:48.110 --> 00:20:50.000
  • YOU HAVE TO SHOW
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:50.220
  • WHAT THE SIDE EFFECTS ARE.
  • 00:20:50.220 --> 00:20:52.260
  • DO YOU DO THAT OVER HERE?
  • 00:20:52.260 --> 00:20:54.260
  • AND SO, THEY'LL ADVERTISE
  • 00:20:54.260 --> 00:20:55.290
  • SOME PRODUCT AND THEY'LL SAY,
  • 00:20:55.290 --> 00:20:57.020
  • TAKE THIS PILL,
  • 00:20:57.020 --> 00:20:58.040
  • IT'LL HEAL YOUR HEADACHE,
  • 00:20:58.040 --> 00:20:59.260
  • BUT THEN THEY'LL SAY,
  • 00:20:59.260 --> 00:21:00.230
  • IT COULD CAUSE DEATH,
  • 00:21:00.230 --> 00:21:02.130
  • IT'LL CAUSE IMPOTENCE,
  • 00:21:02.130 --> 00:21:03.170
  • IT'LL CAUSE THIS,
  • 00:21:03.170 --> 00:21:04.160
  • AND I MEAN, THEY GO THROUGH
  • 00:21:04.160 --> 00:21:05.200
  • ALL OF THIS STUFF,
  • 00:21:05.200 --> 00:21:06.170
  • AND I THINK, MAN, GIVE ME BACK
  • 00:21:06.170 --> 00:21:08.080
  • THE HEADACHE.
  • 00:21:08.080 --> 00:21:09.080
  • IT'S BETTER THAN ALL OF
  • 00:21:09.080 --> 00:21:10.140
  • THE SIDE EFFECTS.
  • 00:21:10.140 --> 00:21:13.010
  • BUT IN A SENSE, THAT'S THE WAY
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:14.060
  • THE LAW WAS.
  • 00:21:14.060 --> 00:21:14.290
  • THE LAW DID TWO THINGS
  • 00:21:14.290 --> 00:21:16.130
  • REALLY WELL.
  • 00:21:16.130 --> 00:21:17.020
  • IT SHOWED YOU WHAT SIN WAS,
  • 00:21:17.020 --> 00:21:19.010
  • AND THERE'S SCRIPTURES THAT SAY
  • 00:21:19.010 --> 00:21:20.060
  • THAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF THE LAW
  • 00:21:20.060 --> 00:21:21.160
  • IS TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:22.100
  • THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN,
  • 00:21:22.100 --> 00:21:23.180
  • AND IT TOOK AWAY
  • 00:21:23.180 --> 00:21:24.200
  • SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:21:24.200 --> 00:21:26.050
  • AND SHOWED YOU THAT YOU COULD
  • 00:21:26.050 --> 00:21:27.170
  • NEVER BE HOLY ENOUGH.
  • 00:21:27.170 --> 00:21:30.040
  • YOU COULD NEVER LIVE
  • 00:21:30.040 --> 00:21:31.030
  • GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:21:31.030 --> 00:21:32.000
  • SO, IT DID ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:21:32.000 --> 00:21:33.070
  • SOME GOOD THINGS
  • 00:21:33.070 --> 00:21:34.040
  • AND THERE STILL IS A PURPOSE
  • 00:21:34.040 --> 00:21:35.220
  • OF THE LAW TODAY.
  • 00:21:35.220 --> 00:21:38.010
  • I'LL PROBABLY DEAL WITH THAT
  • 00:21:38.010 --> 00:21:38.270
  • MORE THIS WEEK
  • 00:21:38.270 --> 00:21:40.100
  • AS I GO THROUGH IT.
  • 00:21:40.100 --> 00:21:41.240
  • SO, THE LAW ACCOMPLISHED
  • 00:21:41.240 --> 00:21:43.090
  • SOME GOOD THINGS,
  • 00:21:43.090 --> 00:21:43.260
  • BUT THE SIDE EFFECTS OF IT
  • 00:21:43.260 --> 00:21:46.220
  • WERE GUILT, CONDEMNATION, SHAME,
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:51.110
  • AND FEELING LIKE,
  • 00:21:51.110 --> 00:21:52.050
  • O GOD, HOW COULD YOU LOVE
  • 00:21:52.050 --> 00:21:54.030
  • ANYBODY LIKE ME?
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:55.100
  • IF THIS IS YOUR STANDARD,
  • 00:21:55.100 --> 00:21:56.190
  • I'M SO UNWORTHY AND UNGODLY,
  • 00:21:56.190 --> 00:21:59.040
  • AND SO, IT DID SOME GOOD THINGS,
  • 00:21:59.040 --> 00:22:01.190
  • BUT IT ALSO ACCOMPLISHED
  • 00:22:01.190 --> 00:22:03.030
  • A LOT OF GUILT
  • 00:22:03.030 --> 00:22:04.140
  • AND A LOT OF CONDEMNATION,
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:05.270
  • AND IN THE NEW COVENANT,
  • 00:22:05.270 --> 00:22:07.260
  • A NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVER
  • 00:22:07.260 --> 00:22:10.050
  • HAS TO GET OUT
  • 00:22:10.050 --> 00:22:11.080
  • FROM UNDER THE LAW
  • 00:22:11.080 --> 00:22:12.210
  • AND FEELING LIKE YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:22:12.210 --> 00:22:13.250
  • TO RELATE TO GOD
  • 00:22:13.250 --> 00:22:15.010
  • BASED ON YOUR PERFORMANCE
  • 00:22:15.010 --> 00:22:16.190
  • OR IT WILL CAUSE GUILT,
  • 00:22:16.190 --> 00:22:18.110
  • CONDEMNATION;
  • 00:22:18.110 --> 00:22:19.120
  • ROMANS 8:1,
  • 00:22:19.120 --> 00:22:20.050
  • THERE IS THEREFORE NOW
  • 00:22:20.050 --> 00:22:21.060
  • NO CONDEMNATION TO THEM
  • 00:22:21.060 --> 00:22:23.070
  • WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS,
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:24.210
  • WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH,
  • 00:22:24.210 --> 00:22:26.030
  • BUT AFTER THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:22:26.030 --> 00:22:27.110
  • THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW
  • 00:22:27.110 --> 00:22:29.050
  • IS NOW FULFILLED IN US,
  • 00:22:29.050 --> 00:22:31.030
  • NOT IN OUR PHYSICAL BODIES,
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:32.140
  • BUT IN OUR SPIRIT THROUGH FAITH
  • 00:22:32.140 --> 00:22:34.240
  • IN CHRIST,
  • 00:22:34.240 --> 00:22:36.060
  • AND YOU HAVE TO PURGE
  • 00:22:36.060 --> 00:22:37.030
  • YOUR CONSCIENCE FROM DEAD WORKS
  • 00:22:37.030 --> 00:22:38.250
  • TO SERVE THE LIVING GOD,
  • 00:22:38.250 --> 00:22:41.000
  • HEBREWS, CHAPTER 9,
  • 00:22:41.000 --> 00:22:43.040
  • AND VERSE 14, SAYS THAT.
  • 00:22:43.040 --> 00:22:45.200
  • SO, ANYWAY, THE LAW HAD
  • 00:22:45.200 --> 00:22:47.060
  • A PURPOSE,
  • 00:22:47.060 --> 00:22:48.210
  • BUT IT REVEALED
  • 00:22:48.210 --> 00:22:49.250
  • THE WRATH OF GOD,
  • 00:22:49.250 --> 00:22:51.040
  • AND SAD TO SAY,
  • 00:22:51.040 --> 00:22:52.010
  • MOST NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVERS
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:53.270
  • HAVE NOT UNDERSTOOD THE PURPOSE.
  • 00:22:53.270 --> 00:22:55.120
  • THEY THOUGHT GOD GAVE THE LAW,
  • 00:22:55.120 --> 00:22:56.230
  • SO THAT WE COULD KEEP IT,
  • 00:22:56.230 --> 00:22:58.080
  • AND THEREBY, EARN RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:22:58.080 --> 00:23:00.290
  • WITH GOD
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:01.160
  • BASED ON OUR PERFORMANCE,
  • 00:23:01.160 --> 00:23:02.220
  • AND IF THAT'S WHAT YOU THINK,
  • 00:23:02.220 --> 00:23:04.020
  • IT GIVES YOU A WRONG IMPRESSION
  • 00:23:04.020 --> 00:23:05.190
