  • Allen Jackson: But Jesus is nota guru, he's not a dispenser of
  • 00:00:01.256 --> 00:00:02.357
  • wisdom, he's not just a wiseman, he's not just the founder
  • 00:00:04.793 --> 00:00:09.864
  • of a religion, he's not just amiracle worker or a healer or a
  • 00:00:09.864 --> 00:00:14.235
  • sage or a provider for you whenyou're in a desperate place.
  • 00:00:14.235 --> 00:00:19.307
  • He is the Son of God and theSavior of the world, and it's
  • 00:00:19.307 --> 00:00:23.845
  • important to understand thedifference.

  • Allen Jackson: It's good to bewith you again.
  • 00:01:02.283 --> 00:01:04.052
  • We're gonna complete the studywe began on "Don't Be Deceived."
  • 00:01:04.052 --> 00:01:07.956
  • But it's not a frighteningtime, it's an exciting time, we
  • 00:01:07.956 --> 00:01:10.391
  • are growing up in our faith.
  • 00:01:10.391 --> 00:01:12.393
  • Spiritual maturity has little todo with your age chronologically
  • 00:01:12.393 --> 00:01:15.563
  • or even your tenure aroundchurch.
  • 00:01:15.563 --> 00:01:17.699
  • It has to do with our spiritualmaturity, and in this season,
  • 00:01:17.699 --> 00:01:20.502
  • God is growing up his church,he's purifying us.
  • 00:01:20.502 --> 00:01:23.671
  • So if you've been a Christianfor a long time, it's an
  • 00:01:23.671 --> 00:01:25.473
  • exciting season, there's a newgrowth spurt coming for us.
  • 00:01:25.473 --> 00:01:28.476
  • If you're a new Christian,you've gotten into the journey
  • 00:01:28.476 --> 00:01:32.147
  • at a dramatic time, an excitingtime.
  • 00:01:32.147 --> 00:01:34.716
  • God is opening our hearts andour eyes to see and understand
  • 00:01:34.716 --> 00:01:38.153
  • what he's doing in the earth.
  • 00:01:38.153 --> 00:01:39.954
  • What a privilege we have to walkwith him through this critical
  • 00:01:39.954 --> 00:01:43.691
  • point in human history.
  • 00:01:43.691 --> 00:01:45.426
  • I want to encourage you not tolook at the darkness, don't give
  • 00:01:45.426 --> 00:01:47.962
  • your attention and your focus tothe expressions of wickedness.
  • 00:01:47.962 --> 00:01:52.300
  • Turn your attention to what yousee God doing, relate it over
  • 00:01:52.300 --> 00:01:55.637
  • and over, celebrate it, givethanks to him.
  • 00:01:55.637 --> 00:01:58.606
  • We have a greater opportunityfor the proclamation of the
  • 00:01:58.606 --> 00:02:01.109
  • gospel than in any time in humanhistory, and the King is
  • 00:02:01.109 --> 00:02:05.180
  • preparing to come.
  • 00:02:05.180 --> 00:02:06.748
  • What a privilege you and I havefor this season.
  • 00:02:06.748 --> 00:02:09.184
  • Grab your Bible, open yourheart, God's got a lesson for us
  • 00:02:09.184 --> 00:02:12.854
  • today, I believe it'll be ablessing.
  • 00:02:12.854 --> 00:02:15.223
  • Allen Jackson: How deceptionenters, how does it come into
  • 00:02:15.223 --> 00:02:16.991
  • our life?
  • 00:02:16.991 --> 00:02:18.326
  • What makes us so vulnerable?
  • 00:02:18.326 --> 00:02:19.694
  • Why is deception such apersistent problem?
  • 00:02:19.694 --> 00:02:22.530
  • In century after century,culture after culture, doesn't
  • 00:02:22.530 --> 00:02:25.934
  • seem to matter what point intime or history.
  • 00:02:25.934 --> 00:02:28.870
  • What is it?
  • 00:02:28.870 --> 00:02:30.238
  • Well, there's one primary doorthat's identified in Scripture.
  • 00:02:30.238 --> 00:02:33.708
  • You wanna guess?
  • 00:02:33.708 --> 00:02:35.743
  • What makes us so vulnerable todeception?
  • 00:02:35.743 --> 00:02:39.647
  • It's pride, pride.
  • 00:02:39.647 --> 00:02:42.317
  • Behind all deception, I wouldsubmit to you, is pride; it
  • 00:02:42.317 --> 00:02:46.521
  • opens us up to deception.
  • 00:02:46.521 --> 00:02:50.325
  • The great deceiver, Lucifer, wasan archangel, many scholars
  • 00:02:50.325 --> 00:02:56.731
  • would suggest the most beautifuland the wisest of all
  • 00:02:56.731 --> 00:03:00.301
  • the angels.
  • 00:03:00.301 --> 00:03:02.470
  • He had authority and power inthe kingdom of God, and in his
  • 00:03:02.470 --> 00:03:09.377
  • pride, he led a rebellion.
  • 00:03:09.377 --> 00:03:17.218
  • It's almost unimaginable.
  • 00:03:17.218 --> 00:03:21.789
  • His pride led to rebellion andit ended in deception.
  • 00:03:21.789 --> 00:03:28.029
  • It was a very, he found himselfso deceived that he led a
  • 00:03:28.029 --> 00:03:31.899
  • rebellion that wasn't going tosucceed.
  • 00:03:31.899 --> 00:03:34.669
  • If it happened to an archangel,may I humbly submit, we should
  • 00:03:34.669 --> 00:03:37.905
  • all be cautious?
  • 00:03:37.905 --> 00:03:40.275
  • Now, you see expressions of thisif you pay just a bit
  • 00:03:40.275 --> 00:03:42.710
  • of attention.
  • 00:03:42.710 --> 00:03:44.112
  • The attraction of almost anycult, of any false religion, and
  • 00:03:44.112 --> 00:03:48.716
  • I'm not talking about thingsthat you identify as wicked, I
  • 00:03:48.716 --> 00:03:51.219
  • mean deviations of Christianitythat take you away from the
  • 00:03:51.219 --> 00:03:54.055
  • redemptive work of Jesus.
  • 00:03:54.055 --> 00:03:56.057
  • The attraction, principally, isjoin us and you'll be a part of
  • 00:03:56.057 --> 00:03:58.860
  • the supergroup; it appeals toour pride.
  • 00:03:58.860 --> 00:04:04.499
  • Well, I'd like to be a part ofthe supergroup.
  • 00:04:04.499 --> 00:04:09.537
  • People in these perspectivesoften will say, "Well the church
  • 00:04:09.537 --> 00:04:11.906
  • has been a little ineffective, alittle misguided, but if you
  • 00:04:11.906 --> 00:04:15.043
  • join our group you'll be moreright than everybody else."
  • 00:04:15.043 --> 00:04:20.915
  • See, the lie, the first liewhich Satan turned on the human
  • 00:04:20.915 --> 00:04:23.851
  • race, is you can be like God,you can know right and wrong,
  • 00:04:23.851 --> 00:04:28.389
  • you can be the arbiter.
  • 00:04:28.389 --> 00:04:30.758
  • Folks, we are the sheep of hispasture, it's why listening is
  • 00:04:30.758 --> 00:04:35.296
  • the primary characteristic ofthe people of God in
  • 00:04:35.296 --> 00:04:37.832
  • every generation.
  • 00:04:37.832 --> 00:04:39.734
  • And if you've imagined that yourtheological system was so tight,
  • 00:04:39.734 --> 00:04:43.271
  • so perfected that you need notlisten any further, you're
  • 00:04:43.271 --> 00:04:47.742
  • already deceived.
  • 00:04:47.742 --> 00:04:50.912
  • Beware of anybody that tells youthere's a group that has gone
  • 00:04:50.912 --> 00:04:54.782
  • further than any of the others,and when you hear that, they're
  • 00:04:54.782 --> 00:04:57.885
  • typically critical of thepreceding generations
  • 00:04:57.885 --> 00:05:00.922
  • of Christians.
  • 00:05:00.922 --> 00:05:03.725
  • What arrogance.
  • 00:05:03.725 --> 00:05:05.059
  • Do you know the tremendoussacrifice that has been paid for
  • 00:05:05.059 --> 00:05:07.829
  • you and I to be able to embraceour Christian faith today?
  • 00:05:07.829 --> 00:05:11.366
  • The tremendous sacrifices thathave been made so that we could
  • 00:05:11.366 --> 00:05:14.001
  • have the Word of God?
  • 00:05:14.001 --> 00:05:16.070
  • That the Jesus story would betold from generation to
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:19.006
  • generation to generation?
  • 00:05:19.006 --> 00:05:20.808
  • We are the inheritors of asacred trust, how dare us talk
  • 00:05:20.808 --> 00:05:25.680
  • about our faith in terms ofcomfort and convenience.
  • 00:05:25.680 --> 00:05:28.950
  • How dare us be more concernedabout our children learning
  • 00:05:28.950 --> 00:05:31.519
  • athletics than learning to fearthe Lord and to understand how
  • 00:05:31.519 --> 00:05:34.322
  • to hear the voice of his Spirit.
  • 00:05:34.322 --> 00:05:37.258
  • What has come over us?
  • 00:05:37.258 --> 00:05:39.627
  • How have we become so sleepy, sodisinterested, so groggy?
  • 00:05:39.627 --> 00:05:46.234
  • The Lord is awakening us.
  • 00:05:46.234 --> 00:05:48.636
  • Any group that says to you, "Tobe correct, you have to join
  • 00:05:48.636 --> 00:05:51.506
  • us," you can know one thing forcertain.
  • 00:05:51.506 --> 00:05:54.075
  • If you join them, you're wrong,'cause correctness doesn't lie
  • 00:05:54.075 --> 00:05:58.746
  • in any single group.
  • 00:05:58.746 --> 00:06:04.018
  • Now, Jesus has chosen a group,how many of you'd like to be
  • 00:06:04.018 --> 00:06:07.655
  • a part?
  • 00:06:07.655 --> 00:06:09.090
  • Me too.
  • 00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:10.458
  • Well, it's not a supergroup, I'mgonna warn you, and only Jesus
  • 00:06:10.458 --> 00:06:14.395
  • would've chosen a group likethis.
  • 00:06:14.395 --> 00:06:18.132
  • But they're described for us inthe Scripture; see if you can
  • 00:06:18.132 --> 00:06:21.736
  • pick out where your name shouldgo.
  • 00:06:21.736 --> 00:06:24.372
  • It's 1 Corinthians chapter 1, inverse 26, "Brothers, think of
  • 00:06:24.372 --> 00:06:27.241
  • what you were when you werecalled."
  • 00:06:27.241 --> 00:06:29.410
  • Do you know God called you?
  • 00:06:29.410 --> 00:06:31.479
  • So he called you before yourdrew your first breath, he
  • 00:06:31.479 --> 00:06:34.582
  • called you when you were stillin your mother's womb, it's why
  • 00:06:34.582 --> 00:06:36.551
  • we stand for those littlepeople.
  • 00:06:36.551 --> 00:06:40.221
  • "Think of what you were when youwere called.
  • 00:06:40.221 --> 00:06:41.589
  • Not many of you were wise byhuman standards; not many were
  • 00:06:41.589 --> 00:06:44.158
  • influential; not many were ofnoble birth.
  • 00:06:44.158 --> 00:06:47.829
  • But God chose the foolish thingsof the world to shame the
  • 00:06:47.829 --> 00:06:52.433
  • wise; he
  • 00:06:52.433 --> 00:06:53.801
  • chose the weak things of theworld to shame the strong.
  • 00:06:53.801 --> 00:06:56.504
  • He chose the lowlythings of this
  • 00:06:56.504 --> 00:06:57.872
  • world and the despised things--
  • 00:06:57.872 --> 00:06:59.507
  • and the things that are not-- tonullify the things that are, so
  • 00:06:59.507 --> 00:07:03.678
  • that no one may boast beforehim.
  • 00:07:03.678 --> 00:07:05.313
  • It's because of him that youare in Christ Jesus, who has
  • 00:07:05.313 --> 00:07:08.483
  • become for us wisdom from God--that is, our righteousness,
  • 00:07:08.483 --> 00:07:11.819
  • holiness and redemption."
  • 00:07:11.819 --> 00:07:14.188
  • What makes us righteous?
  • 00:07:14.188 --> 00:07:15.523
  • Jesus.
  • 00:07:15.523 --> 00:07:16.891
  • What brings holiness to us?
  • 00:07:16.891 --> 00:07:18.226
  • Jesus.
  • 00:07:18.226 --> 00:07:19.594
  • What's the source of ourredemption?
  • 00:07:19.594 --> 00:07:20.928
  • Jesus.
  • 00:07:20.928 --> 00:07:22.296
  • To be one of God's chosen peopleyou gotta be in that list.
  • 00:07:22.296 --> 00:07:25.766
  • That means you gotta be weak,foolish, lowly, based, despised.
  • 00:07:25.766 --> 00:07:32.273
  • [congregation applauding]
  • 00:07:32.273 --> 00:07:36.944
  • So if you're listening to thisand you think, I'm too broken to
  • 00:07:36.944 --> 00:07:38.980
  • be one of the only-- come on in,man, we got room for one more.
  • 00:07:38.980 --> 00:07:42.750
  • There's no boasting inourselves, we need to get over
  • 00:07:42.750 --> 00:07:45.286
  • ourselves a little bit.
  • 00:07:45.286 --> 00:07:48.356
  • You see, it's our compassion forpeople that motivates us to
  • 00:07:48.356 --> 00:07:51.959
  • share our Jesus story, not ourarrogance.
  • 00:07:51.959 --> 00:07:56.697
  • Now there's one more component,let's unpack this one at least.
  • 00:07:56.697 --> 00:07:59.500
  • The topic is deception and howto avoid it.
  • 00:07:59.500 --> 00:08:02.970
  • And there's a toxic combinationof your flesh, your carnal self,
  • 00:08:02.970 --> 00:08:07.141
  • that part of us that isunredeemed; your spirit's born
  • 00:08:07.141 --> 00:08:09.410
  • again, made alive to God, butyour old earthly nature, fed by
  • 00:08:09.410 --> 00:08:12.480
  • your emotions and your thoughts,that carnal part of us, combined
  • 00:08:12.480 --> 00:08:17.318
  • with deceiving spirits that arepresent in the earth is a
  • 00:08:17.318 --> 00:08:22.657
  • significant doorway to deceptionin our lives.
  • 00:08:22.657 --> 00:08:25.860
  • Ephesians chapter 4, verse 11,it says, "It was he who gave
  • 00:08:25.860 --> 00:08:30.565
  • some to be apostles, some to beprophets, and some to be
  • 00:08:30.565 --> 00:08:33.167
  • evangelists, and some to bepastors, and teachers, to
  • 00:08:33.167 --> 00:08:36.203
  • prepare God's people for worksof service, so that the body of
  • 00:08:36.203 --> 00:08:39.707
  • Christ may be built up until weall reach unity in the faith and
  • 00:08:39.707 --> 00:08:42.643
  • in the knowledge of the son ofGod and become mature, attaining
  • 00:08:42.643 --> 00:08:45.780
  • to the whole measure of thefullness of Christ."
  • 00:08:45.780 --> 00:08:48.316
  • Now, the objective is thematuring of the body of Christ,
  • 00:08:48.316 --> 00:08:51.519
  • and it's worth noting thatmaturity comes in community.
  • 00:08:51.519 --> 00:08:55.389
  • It's not a trick to get you tocome to church, you can sit in
  • 00:08:55.389 --> 00:08:57.658
  • church and not grow up just likeyou can sit in the gym and not
  • 00:08:57.658 --> 00:08:59.927
  • get healthy.
  • 00:08:59.927 --> 00:09:01.829
  • But it's hard to get healthierif you don't ever find where
  • 00:09:01.829 --> 00:09:03.931
  • there's the equipment to helpyou or the experience to help
  • 00:09:03.931 --> 00:09:06.033
  • you or the expertise to helpyou, and you will not reach
  • 00:09:06.033 --> 00:09:08.302
  • maturity alone, we need oneanother.
  • 00:09:08.302 --> 00:09:11.172
  • Not my idea, it's biblical, soif you don't like it, get mad
  • 00:09:11.172 --> 00:09:13.341
  • at God.
  • 00:09:13.341 --> 00:09:15.309
  • But it clearly tells us thatGod's provision for his church,
  • 00:09:15.309 --> 00:09:18.479
  • for his people, now Jesus is thehead of the church, but he has
  • 00:09:18.479 --> 00:09:21.349
  • put in place in the church somethings to help us mature.
  • 00:09:21.349 --> 00:09:25.152
  • It said he's given us apostles,prophets, evangelists, and
  • 00:09:25.152 --> 00:09:28.489
  • pastors and teachers; some willtake pastor-teacher and
  • 00:09:28.489 --> 00:09:31.025
  • hyphenate it, some separate it,doesn't matter to me.
  • 00:09:31.025 --> 00:09:40.301
  • So those gifts exist in thechurch and you can't logically
  • 00:09:40.301 --> 00:09:43.537
  • or rationally from a biblicalbasis say, "Well, I believe in
  • 00:09:43.537 --> 00:09:46.941
  • pastors but I don't believe inprophets, or I believe in
  • 00:09:46.941 --> 00:09:51.145
  • teachers but I don't believe inapostles," 'cause they're all
  • 00:09:51.145 --> 00:09:54.315
  • presented to us in the sameplace for the same purpose.
  • 00:09:54.315 --> 00:09:57.918
  • For the church to have thestrength we need, and to
  • 00:09:57.918 --> 00:10:00.087
  • accomplish our mission, we willneed those fivefold ministry
  • 00:10:00.087 --> 00:10:03.157
  • gifts in play in the church.
  • 00:10:03.157 --> 00:10:06.661
  • Now we need to understand whatthey are.
  • 00:10:06.661 --> 00:10:09.964
  • Your definition or what Grandmathought may not be fully
  • 00:10:09.964 --> 00:10:12.600
  • accurate, and I'll tell you,everyone who calls himself a
  • 00:10:12.600 --> 00:10:16.237
  • pastor doesn't necessarily carefor and strengthen the flock.
  • 00:10:16.237 --> 00:10:23.144
  • I'm not throwing stones atanybody, that's just reality.
  • 00:10:23.144 --> 00:10:26.147
  • In the same way, everybody thatcalls himself an apostle, or
  • 00:10:26.147 --> 00:10:28.449
  • calls himself a prophet isn'tnecessarily standing in that
  • 00:10:28.449 --> 00:10:31.385
  • place called by God, they justgot business cards printed.
  • 00:10:31.385 --> 00:10:37.425
  • Labels and titles don'tguarantee authenticity.
  • 00:10:37.425 --> 00:10:42.229
  • That's just factual, and youneed to be aware and not naive.
  • 00:10:42.229 --> 00:10:45.499
  • Sometimes, as Christians, wecheck our brains in the
  • 00:10:45.499 --> 00:10:47.868
  • parking lot.
  • 00:10:47.868 --> 00:10:50.071
  • Please don't do that.
  • 00:10:50.071 --> 00:10:53.741
  • male announcer: You know, one ofthe great things about the Bible
  • 00:10:57.978 --> 00:11:00.047
  • is you don't need to have theknowledge of a Jeopardy champ to
  • 00:11:00.047 --> 00:11:02.983
  • be able to jump in.
  • 00:11:02.983 --> 00:11:04.452
  • Just a quick review of the storyand boom, you're right there
  • 00:11:04.452 --> 00:11:07.655
  • with it.
  • 00:11:07.655 --> 00:11:08.989
  • And sometimes it's those of uswho think we know everything
  • 00:11:08.989 --> 00:11:12.359
  • about God's story that are theones who really need the review.
  • 00:11:12.359 --> 00:11:16.297
  • So as a way to help all of us,we're gonna recap the entire
  • 00:11:16.297 --> 00:11:20.301
  • story so far in under 60seconds.
  • 00:11:20.301 --> 00:11:23.471
  • Sixty seconds, you say?
  • 00:11:23.471 --> 00:11:25.005
  • Impossible!
  • 00:11:25.005 --> 00:11:26.340
  • To which I say, well maybe, butlet's give this a shot.
  • 00:11:26.340 --> 00:11:30.177
  • Okay.
  • 00:11:30.177 --> 00:11:32.747
  • Go!
  • 00:11:32.747 --> 00:11:34.081
  • The story starts at thebeginning of the whole
  • 00:11:34.081 --> 00:11:35.649
  • enchilada, when God spoke theuniverse into existence,
  • 00:11:35.649 --> 00:11:38.385
  • including creating the world'sfirst man and woman.
  • 00:11:38.385 --> 00:11:41.589
  • At first life was perfect, butsoon after, these folks and
  • 00:11:41.589 --> 00:11:45.326
  • their kids and grandkids decidedthey didn't want to live the way
  • 00:11:45.326 --> 00:11:48.295
  • God had told them to.
  • 00:11:48.295 --> 00:11:49.663
  • And pretty much everybody onearth got into some kind of evil
  • 00:11:49.663 --> 00:11:52.466
  • or another.
  • 00:11:52.466 --> 00:11:53.834
  • So God decided to hit the resetbutton and wiped out all of
  • 00:11:53.834 --> 00:11:56.570
  • earth with a flood, except for aman named Noah and his family.
  • 00:11:56.570 --> 00:12:00.141
  • The population started to growagain, and eventually God chose
  • 00:12:00.141 --> 00:12:03.244
  • a group of people to start a newnation called Israel.
  • 00:12:03.244 --> 00:12:06.280
  • Israel went through some prettyrough stuff early on, like bein'
  • 00:12:06.280 --> 00:12:09.283
  • slaves in Egypt.
  • 00:12:09.283 --> 00:12:10.651
  • But eventually God rescued themand brought them into a giant
  • 00:12:10.651 --> 00:12:13.554
  • piece of land God had promisedto them.
  • 00:12:13.554 --> 00:12:15.456
  • Later, God raised up a kingnamed David to rule Israel.
  • 00:12:15.456 --> 00:12:18.926
  • David was an amazing guy,helping people live the way
  • 00:12:18.926 --> 00:12:21.762
  • God wanted.
  • 00:12:21.762 --> 00:12:23.097
  • The people of Israel were unitedand living at peace.
  • 00:12:23.097 --> 00:12:26.100
  • But when David's son, Solomon,became king, he sorta forgot
  • 00:12:26.100 --> 00:12:29.170
  • about God and started to worshipother gods.
  • 00:12:29.170 --> 00:12:31.705
  • As you can imagine, that wasabout to spell great trouble,
  • 00:12:31.705 --> 00:12:34.475
  • not only for Solomon but for allof Israel.
  • 00:12:34.475 --> 00:12:36.944
  • Allen Jackson: Hey, the truthis, the Bible is intimidating.
  • 00:12:38.279 --> 00:12:40.314
  • 66 books written over a longperiod of time, dozens of
  • 00:12:40.314 --> 00:12:43.484
  • authors, different cultures,words we don't know how to
  • 00:12:43.484 --> 00:12:46.287
  • pronounce, places we don't knowwhere they are, and we're
  • 00:12:46.287 --> 00:12:48.989
  • supposed to understand it.
  • 00:12:48.989 --> 00:12:50.524
  • Most of us have just given up.
  • 00:12:50.524 --> 00:12:52.560
  • Well I built a tool to help.

  • Abraham fits in relation toIsaiah, it'll help you.
  • 00:12:59.733 --> 00:13:03.137
  • And I found some crazy talentedillustrators to do some

  • whiteboard drawings along withit to make it not only
  • 00:13:05.639 --> 00:13:08.309

  • You can get your softball teamtogether and do it, you can get

  • your neighbors around a kitchentable.

  • Allen Jackson: There's just somepractical issues around this
  • 00:14:00.160 --> 00:14:02.196
  • that we need to unpack for amoment or two, how error can
  • 00:14:02.196 --> 00:14:06.133
  • enter our lives through peopleunder the guise of those labels.
  • 00:14:06.133 --> 00:14:11.171
  • After all, prophecy'shigh-sounding stuff, how could
  • 00:14:11.171 --> 00:14:15.876
  • you act against something thatsomeone said to you and tagged
  • 00:14:15.876 --> 00:14:18.679
  • on, "Thus saith the Lord?"
  • 00:14:18.679 --> 00:14:21.916
  • The primary purpose of prophecyin Scripture isn't to foretell
  • 00:14:21.916 --> 00:14:25.786
  • the future, it's to give us anaccurate perspective of how God
  • 00:14:25.786 --> 00:14:30.224
  • sees the circumstance.
  • 00:14:30.224 --> 00:14:32.693
  • If you'll go back through theprophets and read it with that
  • 00:14:32.693 --> 00:14:34.828
  • viewpoint, it will be eminentlyhelpful.
  • 00:14:34.828 --> 00:14:38.065
  • Now, does the Spirit of God giveit application to the future?
  • 00:14:38.065 --> 00:14:40.701
  • Yes, he does, but there's a veryfine line between biblical
  • 00:14:40.701 --> 00:14:44.772
  • prophecy and fortune telling,and one is directed by the
  • 00:14:44.772 --> 00:14:48.809
  • Spirit of God and one is not.
  • 00:14:48.809 --> 00:14:52.246
  • God doesn't promise to reveal toyou everything about your
  • 00:14:52.246 --> 00:14:54.748
  • future; if you knew, it wouldn'tbe helpful.
  • 00:14:54.748 --> 00:14:57.284
  • And if you have a desire to knowand you spend your time seeking
  • 00:14:57.284 --> 00:15:00.054
  • it, it's a high degree ofprobability you'll end up in the
  • 00:15:00.054 --> 00:15:02.690
  • occult and filled withdeception.
  • 00:15:02.690 --> 00:15:06.026
  • So it's not an easy thing.
  • 00:15:06.026 --> 00:15:07.361
  • And that combination of ourcarnal self and deceiving
  • 00:15:07.361 --> 00:15:10.297
  • spirits makes us vulnerable, sothe Bible gives us
  • 00:15:10.297 --> 00:15:13.133
  • some safeguards.
  • 00:15:13.133 --> 00:15:14.468
  • 1 Corinthians 14:29, it says,"Two or three prophets should
  • 00:15:14.468 --> 00:15:16.770
  • speak, and the other shouldweigh carefully what is said."
  • 00:15:16.770 --> 00:15:21.475
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:19, "Don'tquench the Spirit; don't despise
  • 00:15:21.475 --> 00:15:25.946
  • prophetic utterances."
  • 00:15:25.946 --> 00:15:27.381
  • You need to hear that, becauseonce you've been burned by some
  • 00:15:27.381 --> 00:15:30.417
  • people using the name of theLord in destructive ways, you're
  • 00:15:30.417 --> 00:15:33.253
  • gonna think, "I'm just gonnapush the whole thing into the
  • 00:15:33.253 --> 00:15:35.022
  • rubbish heap."
  • 00:15:35.022 --> 00:15:37.124
  • But the Bible says we can'tdespise it, we need God's
  • 00:15:37.124 --> 00:15:39.860
  • perspective on where we are,somebody has to tell us the
  • 00:15:39.860 --> 00:15:42.863
  • truth; the truth is the antidotefor deception.
  • 00:15:42.863 --> 00:15:47.234
  • So prophetic messages shouldn'talways just be encouraging,
  • 00:15:47.234 --> 00:15:49.603
  • happy things about promotionsand good hair days.
  • 00:15:49.603 --> 00:15:56.043
  • Anybody who participates inprophecy has to be willing to
  • 00:15:56.043 --> 00:15:59.113
  • be judged.
  • 00:15:59.113 --> 00:16:00.681
  • Now what's the standard we judgeby?
  • 00:16:00.681 --> 00:16:02.282
  • How you feel about it?
  • 00:16:02.282 --> 00:16:03.617
  • If it suits your preference forthe future?
  • 00:16:03.617 --> 00:16:06.420
  • No, Isaiah 8:19, gives us aclue, "What they to say,
  • 00:16:06.420 --> 00:16:09.456
  • 'Consult the mediums andspiritists who whisper and
  • 00:16:09.456 --> 00:16:12.426
  • mutter,' should not a peopleconsult their God?"
  • 00:16:12.426 --> 00:16:14.995
  • Isaiah's saying why do you go tosources other than God to get
  • 00:16:14.995 --> 00:16:18.499
  • information about the future?
  • 00:16:18.499 --> 00:16:19.867
  • I'd put the question to you.
  • 00:16:19.867 --> 00:16:22.002
  • Why do you read horoscopes?
  • 00:16:22.002 --> 00:16:24.471
  • Why do you play with ouijaboards?
  • 00:16:24.471 --> 00:16:26.040
  • Why do you go to fortunetellers?
  • 00:16:26.040 --> 00:16:29.843
  • Why do you use systems otherthan God to anticipate
  • 00:16:29.843 --> 00:16:33.113
  • the future?
  • 00:16:33.113 --> 00:16:34.481
  • The answer is, it's not the HolySpirit, and if you've been
  • 00:16:34.481 --> 00:16:37.317
  • involved in it, no matter whoblessed it or how religious it
  • 00:16:37.317 --> 00:16:40.087
  • may be or if it was put underthe umbrella of Christianity,
  • 00:16:40.087 --> 00:16:43.590
  • you need to renounce it.
  • 00:16:43.590 --> 00:16:45.692
  • Repent, renounce, it'll bringfreedom to you.
  • 00:16:45.692 --> 00:16:51.265
  • Where was I?
  • 00:16:51.265 --> 00:16:52.599
  • "Should not a peopleconsult their God?
  • 00:16:52.599 --> 00:16:55.069
  • Should they consult the dead onbehalf of the living?"
  • 00:16:55.069 --> 00:16:57.538
  • Seances.
  • 00:16:57.538 --> 00:17:01.442
  • "To the law and to thetestimony.
  • 00:17:01.442 --> 00:17:03.811
  • If they don't speak according tothis word, it is because they
  • 00:17:03.811 --> 00:17:06.780
  • have no light."
  • 00:17:06.780 --> 00:17:08.982
  • We judge what is spoken by theWord of God.
  • 00:17:08.982 --> 00:17:14.021
  • Now let me add another piece tothis, 'cause we talk about those
  • 00:17:14.021 --> 00:17:16.290
  • five-fold ministry gifts, itimpacts us, it impacts the world
  • 00:17:16.290 --> 00:17:20.360
  • in which we live, the systems inwhich we participate.
  • 00:17:20.360 --> 00:17:25.165
  • And one idea that has provenhelpful to me is that spiritual
  • 00:17:25.165 --> 00:17:28.469
  • leadership needs to be inproportion to the faith of
  • 00:17:28.469 --> 00:17:31.438
  • the individual.
  • 00:17:31.438 --> 00:17:34.074
  • And in Greek, faith andfaithfulness
  • 00:17:34.074 --> 00:17:37.778
  • are interchangeable.
  • 00:17:37.778 --> 00:17:39.646
  • They seem different to us, faithseems like some mystical
  • 00:17:39.646 --> 00:17:42.616
  • formula, and faithfulness issomething else, but in the
  • 00:17:42.616 --> 00:17:46.053
  • wording of the New Testamentthey are interchangeable.
  • 00:17:46.053 --> 00:17:48.856
  • If you want to know a person offaith, you'll need to know a
  • 00:17:48.856 --> 00:17:50.958
  • faithful person, you can't be aperson of faith and not be a
  • 00:17:50.958 --> 00:17:53.227
  • faithful person.
  • 00:17:53.227 --> 00:17:56.830
  • In Romans 12, in verse 6, itsays, "We have different gifts,
  • 00:17:56.830 --> 00:17:59.433
  • according to the grace given us.
  • 00:17:59.433 --> 00:18:01.535
  • If a man's gift is prophesying,let him use it in proportion to
  • 00:18:01.535 --> 00:18:05.139
  • his faith."
  • 00:18:05.139 --> 00:18:07.307
  • A helpful little idea for you,for all of us is not to go
  • 00:18:07.307 --> 00:18:12.312
  • beyond our faith or ourfaithfulness.
  • 00:18:12.312 --> 00:18:16.049
  • Serving the Lord can beemotional, whether it's
  • 00:18:16.049 --> 00:18:21.121
  • prophesying or teaching orleading or whatever gifting
  • 00:18:21.121 --> 00:18:25.225
  • you may have.
  • 00:18:25.225 --> 00:18:26.760
  • And you may aspire to something,you may have a ambition within
  • 00:18:26.760 --> 00:18:30.430
  • you that is motivating for that.
  • 00:18:30.430 --> 00:18:32.599
  • And ambition isn't evil butambition has to be yielded to
  • 00:18:32.599 --> 00:18:35.169
  • the Lord, selfish ambition isdestructive.
  • 00:18:35.169 --> 00:18:39.173
  • And if you combine the awarenessof godly things and our carnal
  • 00:18:39.173 --> 00:18:43.076
  • nature, it's easy to haveambition that goes beyond the
  • 00:18:43.076 --> 00:18:46.613
  • place of our faithfulness, andit puts us in destructive,
  • 00:18:46.613 --> 00:18:51.818
  • vulnerable places.
  • 00:18:51.818 --> 00:18:54.588
  • Stay within your allottedproportion of faith.
  • 00:18:54.588 --> 00:18:58.158
  • Now you can grow in your faith,your faith can be strengthened.
  • 00:18:58.158 --> 00:19:01.828
  • Watch the disciples through theGospels into the book of Acts,
  • 00:19:01.828 --> 00:19:05.365
  • watch them grow in their faith,listen to your heroes in the
  • 00:19:05.365 --> 00:19:08.635
  • Old Testament.
  • 00:19:08.635 --> 00:19:10.003
  • David, when he hears Goliathbellow his challenge and the
  • 00:19:10.003 --> 00:19:12.072
  • bravest, most effective warriorsin Israelite Army are hiding in
  • 00:19:12.072 --> 00:19:17.311
  • their tents, and little shepherdkid rolls in and says, "I can
  • 00:19:17.311 --> 00:19:20.480
  • take him."
  • 00:19:20.480 --> 00:19:23.050
  • And when he's interrogated aboutit, remember what he said?
  • 00:19:23.050 --> 00:19:26.086
  • He said, "He's challenged thearmies of the living God."
  • 00:19:26.086 --> 00:19:29.823
  • He didn't challenge the army isSaul, he called God out.
  • 00:19:29.823 --> 00:19:36.597
  • And he said I had an assignmentto care for my father's flocks,
  • 00:19:36.597 --> 00:19:40.200
  • that if a bear came against theflock, I took the lamb away and
  • 00:19:40.200 --> 00:19:44.037
  • killed the bear.
  • 00:19:44.037 --> 00:19:46.039
  • And if a lion came and took alamb, I took the lamb back and
  • 00:19:46.039 --> 00:19:48.742
  • killed the lion.
  • 00:19:48.742 --> 00:19:50.777
  • And this clown's no differentthan the lion or the bear.
  • 00:19:50.777 --> 00:19:55.682
  • He didn't wait to figure out howhis sling worked when he heard
  • 00:19:55.682 --> 00:19:58.218
  • Goliath start to speak.
  • 00:19:58.218 --> 00:20:01.154
  • You wanna strengthen yourfaithfulness to the Lord.
  • 00:20:01.154 --> 00:20:09.763
  • We have to let go of this notionthat, "I'm mature 'cause I can
  • 00:20:09.763 --> 00:20:13.500
  • spell the 12 tribes of Israel intheir original language."
  • 00:20:13.500 --> 00:20:17.571
  • Now I'm an advocate forknowledge, spent most of my life
  • 00:20:17.571 --> 00:20:21.642
  • studying and hope to continue todo so, but we want to grow in
  • 00:20:21.642 --> 00:20:26.413
  • our faithfulness to him.
  • 00:20:26.413 --> 00:20:28.782
  • Can you be trusted in the placewhere you stand?
  • 00:20:28.782 --> 00:20:31.852
  • Are you trustworthy in all ofthe circles of influence God has
  • 00:20:31.852 --> 00:20:35.188
  • given to you?
  • 00:20:35.188 --> 00:20:37.357
  • Or are you just trustworthy inattendance?
  • 00:20:37.357 --> 00:20:42.095
  • You see, grow in yourfaithfulness and then we can
  • 00:20:42.095 --> 00:20:44.364
  • become conduits for all that Godwants to do; but be aware when
  • 00:20:44.364 --> 00:20:50.170
  • you listen, be aware when youfollow, pay attention.
  • 00:20:50.170 --> 00:20:54.541
  • I'll give you one example, I'mabout done, there's hope.
  • 00:20:54.541 --> 00:20:57.711
  • Acts 16, Paul and his team,"Once we were going to the place
  • 00:20:57.711 --> 00:21:02.182
  • of prayer, we were met by aslave girl who had a spirit by
  • 00:21:02.182 --> 00:21:05.852
  • which she predicted the future."
  • 00:21:05.852 --> 00:21:08.522
  • She has an unclean spirit, ademonic spirit that enables her
  • 00:21:08.522 --> 00:21:11.758
  • to predict the future and withenough accuracy that she's
  • 00:21:11.758 --> 00:21:14.594
  • producing a significant income.
  • 00:21:14.594 --> 00:21:18.932
  • Did you know that spirits haveawareness that you don't have?
  • 00:21:18.932 --> 00:21:22.469
  • You see, some of us are stillstuck arguing over whether
  • 00:21:22.469 --> 00:21:24.371
  • there's unclean spirits.
  • 00:21:24.371 --> 00:21:28.508
  • Spirits have information andinsight and understanding that
  • 00:21:28.508 --> 00:21:30.811
  • often we don't have, so you'llhear something you think, well
  • 00:21:30.811 --> 00:21:34.481
  • that's true, but it doesn'tnecessarily mean it's the
  • 00:21:34.481 --> 00:21:36.383
  • Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:36.383 --> 00:21:39.219
  • "She earned a great deal ofmoney for her owners
  • 00:21:39.219 --> 00:21:41.088
  • by fortune-telling.
  • 00:21:41.088 --> 00:21:42.956
  • The girl followed Paul and therest of us, shouting, 'These men
  • 00:21:42.956 --> 00:21:46.693
  • are servants of the Most HighGod, who are telling you the way
  • 00:21:46.693 --> 00:21:49.329
  • to be saved.'"
  • 00:21:49.329 --> 00:21:51.398
  • That's a pretty good label, mostof you would be content with
  • 00:21:51.398 --> 00:21:56.069
  • that message on your desk:"Servant of the Most High God, I
  • 00:21:56.069 --> 00:22:00.741
  • can tell you how to be saved."
  • 00:22:00.741 --> 00:22:03.810
  • In fact, she's the first personin Philippi to recognize that,
  • 00:22:03.810 --> 00:22:07.180
  • there are no converts yet.
  • 00:22:07.180 --> 00:22:11.385
  • "She kept this up for many days.
  • 00:22:11.385 --> 00:22:14.488
  • Finally, Paul became so troubledthat he turned around and said
  • 00:22:14.488 --> 00:22:17.190
  • to the spirit, 'In the name ofJesus Christ, I command you to
  • 00:22:17.190 --> 00:22:20.327
  • come out of her.'
  • 00:22:20.327 --> 00:22:22.329
  • And at that moment, the spiritleft her."
  • 00:22:22.329 --> 00:22:24.798
  • Now some of you know the rest ofthe story.
  • 00:22:24.798 --> 00:22:27.868
  • When the owners of the slavegirl discover that they've lost
  • 00:22:27.868 --> 00:22:30.604
  • their golden goose they're veryunhappy with Paul, but it's the
  • 00:22:30.604 --> 00:22:37.310
  • circumstances before that Ithink, that are most helpful
  • 00:22:37.310 --> 00:22:39.613
  • to me.
  • 00:22:39.613 --> 00:22:40.981
  • Every word that we have thatthat woman said was true, it was
  • 00:22:40.981 --> 00:22:46.219
  • the truth, but it wasn't theSpirit of God.
  • 00:22:46.219 --> 00:22:52.392
  • It's very clear in the context,it was a divining spirit, a
  • 00:22:52.392 --> 00:22:55.796
  • fortune-telling spirit.
  • 00:22:55.796 --> 00:22:57.998
  • Most of us, I suspect,confronted with somebody, if we
  • 00:22:57.998 --> 00:23:00.634
  • were on a missions journey or wewent into a new office or some
  • 00:23:00.634 --> 00:23:03.870
  • new settings of people and wefound somebody that would make
  • 00:23:03.870 --> 00:23:06.173
  • that declaration over us, wewould make them first chair at
  • 00:23:06.173 --> 00:23:10.610
  • the table, founding members.
  • 00:23:10.610 --> 00:23:17.017
  • After all, they've got atremendous grasp of the truth.
  • 00:23:17.017 --> 00:23:21.588
  • We need discernment, we needthose multiple coordinates
  • 00:23:21.588 --> 00:23:29.863
  • because the best deceptionbegins with a part of the truth
  • 00:23:29.863 --> 00:23:34.968
  • and almost every deceivingspirit has some truth, and we're
  • 00:23:34.968 --> 00:23:40.507
  • gonna have to be moresophisticated.
  • 00:23:40.507 --> 00:23:43.176
  • Well Pastor, I don't really likethis, this sounds like hard
  • 00:23:43.176 --> 00:23:45.378
  • work, can't you just tell me thetwo verses I need to memorize so
  • 00:23:45.378 --> 00:23:51.117
  • I can go to heaven?
  • 00:23:51.117 --> 00:23:52.452
  • I just don't like to think aboutall the spiritual stuff.
  • 00:23:52.452 --> 00:23:55.856
  • Bless your heart.
  • 00:23:55.856 --> 00:23:59.159
  • In all honesty, I understand thefeeling, and there may have been
  • 00:23:59.159 --> 00:24:02.996
  • a time and a place whenChristianity was such a
  • 00:24:02.996 --> 00:24:04.898
  • pervasive influence in ourculture that you could find a
  • 00:24:04.898 --> 00:24:08.468
  • way to flourish on the blessingsof generations who had preceded
  • 00:24:08.468 --> 00:24:11.438
  • you, but we're not there anylonger.
  • 00:24:11.438 --> 00:24:16.209
  • And if our children andgrandchildren are gonna know
  • 00:24:16.209 --> 00:24:18.044
  • truth and live with freedom,it's gonna require greater
  • 00:24:18.044 --> 00:24:21.915
  • discernment from us.
  • 00:24:21.915 --> 00:24:24.351
  • We have labored beneathdeception for far too long.
  • 00:24:24.351 --> 00:24:29.556
  • See, the point of the cross, thebeauty of the redemptive work of
  • 00:24:29.556 --> 00:24:33.660
  • Jesus is, no matter in which waysin or ungodliness or wickedness
  • 00:24:33.660 --> 00:24:38.899
  • has touched your life, you cannot only be delivered from it,
  • 00:24:38.899 --> 00:24:42.035
  • you can be redeemed.
  • 00:24:42.035 --> 00:24:44.504
  • That is the good news of thegospel, it's why we love Jesus,
  • 00:24:44.504 --> 00:24:50.110
  • it's why we advocate for him.
  • 00:24:50.110 --> 00:24:51.444
  • It's not 'cause we're bored onSunday mornings and we need a
  • 00:24:51.444 --> 00:24:53.246
  • little side activity to make uspolite or tame, the church has
  • 00:24:53.246 --> 00:24:57.217
  • not been called to be tame, andit's not polite to follow
  • 00:24:57.217 --> 00:25:00.987
  • the Lord.
  • 00:25:00.987 --> 00:25:03.323
  • In fact, until you're desperateenough that you're willing to
  • 00:25:03.323 --> 00:25:05.759
  • lose the facade of being polite,you won't follow him very far.
  • 00:25:05.759 --> 00:25:11.565
  • But it is good news for everyonewho will receive the truth.
  • 00:25:11.565 --> 00:25:16.069
  • Now, I wanna close, I wanna giveyou two verses of Scripture, and
  • 00:25:16.069 --> 00:25:20.574
  • I'm going to ask you, I thinkthey can put them on the
  • 00:25:20.574 --> 00:25:22.542
  • screens, we can say themtogether as a proclamation over
  • 00:25:22.542 --> 00:25:25.045
  • ourselves, over our families,over our church, over our
  • 00:25:25.045 --> 00:25:28.014
  • community, over our nation, overGod's purposes because we want
  • 00:25:28.014 --> 00:25:34.220
  • the awakening to continue.
  • 00:25:34.220 --> 00:25:37.190
  • We intend to participate withpeople from every nation, race,
  • 00:25:37.190 --> 00:25:41.361
  • language, and tribe.
  • 00:25:41.361 --> 00:25:43.196
  • Wherever God gives us theopportunity to stand with those
  • 00:25:43.196 --> 00:25:45.966
  • who are saying yes to him inthis season.
  • 00:25:45.966 --> 00:25:49.069
  • Amen?
  • 00:25:49.069 --> 00:25:51.071
  • Why don't you stand with me?
  • 00:25:51.071 --> 00:25:53.573
  • Have you got the verses?
  • 00:25:53.573 --> 00:25:55.075
  • Isaiah 45, in verse 8, verygood, let's read it together.
  • 00:25:55.075 --> 00:25:58.778
  • "Your heavens above rain downrighteousness; let the clouds
  • 00:25:58.778 --> 00:26:03.283
  • shower it down.
  • 00:26:03.283 --> 00:26:04.951
  • Let the earth open wide, letsalvation spring up, let
  • 00:26:04.951 --> 00:26:09.322
  • righteousness grow with it.
  • 00:26:09.322 --> 00:26:11.358
  • I, the Lord, have created it."
  • 00:26:11.358 --> 00:26:13.927
  • And now from Hosea chapter 10,in verse 12.
  • 00:26:13.927 --> 00:26:16.830
  • "It is time to seek the Lord,until he comes and showers
  • 00:26:16.830 --> 00:26:21.067
  • righteousness on you."
  • 00:26:21.067 --> 00:26:22.802
  • Let's say that one again.
  • 00:26:22.802 --> 00:26:24.437
  • "It is time to seek the Lord,until he comes and showers
  • 00:26:24.437 --> 00:26:28.808
  • righteousness on you."
