  • Allen Jackson: "False Prophets,False Teachers, and Deception."
  • 00:00:44.703 --> 00:00:48.674
  • Is that not a happy, happytitle?
  • 00:00:48.707 --> 00:00:52.878
  • And I want to start justreminding you that Jesus was not
  • 00:00:52.911 --> 00:00:57.149
  • only our Savior, he was not onlythe Messiah, but he also stood
  • 00:00:57.182 --> 00:01:02.154
  • in the role of Prophet.
  • 00:01:02.187 --> 00:01:03.889
  • In fact, Jesus of Nazareth isthe greatest of all the
  • 00:01:03.922 --> 00:01:06.892
  • Hebrew prophets.
  • 00:01:06.925 --> 00:01:08.260
  • And I'm gonna suggest to youthat he has much to say to us in
  • 00:01:08.293 --> 00:01:10.896
  • the 21st century; that hismessages weren't focused only on
  • 00:01:10.929 --> 00:01:15.367
  • the 1st century.
  • 00:01:15.400 --> 00:01:18.504
  • I would submit that it reallyshould be no surprise that there
  • 00:01:18.537 --> 00:01:24.376
  • is a proliferation of falseprophets as we approach the end
  • 00:01:24.409 --> 00:01:27.646
  • of this age.
  • 00:01:27.679 --> 00:01:29.281
  • One of the characteristics as weapproach the end of this age is
  • 00:01:29.314 --> 00:01:32.351
  • going to be a bolder expressionof the spirit of
  • 00:01:32.384 --> 00:01:35.387
  • antichrist, agreed?
  • 00:01:35.420 --> 00:01:37.189
  • Jesus is less tolerated todaythan at any time in my lifetime,
  • 00:01:37.222 --> 00:01:41.593
  • in our public schools, in ourpublic institutions.
  • 00:01:41.627 --> 00:01:44.296
  • We don't want the TenCommandments even any longer.
  • 00:01:44.329 --> 00:01:47.266
  • The name of Jesus is consideredto be contentious, particularly
  • 00:01:47.299 --> 00:01:51.537
  • if you would assert that there'ssomething unique about Jesus,
  • 00:01:51.570 --> 00:01:54.439
  • that he is the only way, thetruth, and the life.
  • 00:01:54.473 --> 00:01:58.210
  • All of those points ofresistance understand the
  • 00:01:58.243 --> 00:02:00.579
  • motivation behind them.
  • 00:02:00.612 --> 00:02:01.947
  • It's not political orideological, it's spiritual.
  • 00:02:01.980 --> 00:02:04.983
  • They are an expression of thespirit of antichrist.
  • 00:02:05.017 --> 00:02:08.987
  • And the spirit of antichristfundamentally is the spirit of a
  • 00:02:09.021 --> 00:02:11.790
  • false christ.
  • 00:02:11.823 --> 00:02:14.226
  • So if the spirit of antichristis growing, it's only logical
  • 00:02:14.259 --> 00:02:17.996
  • that the spirit of the falseprophets would be multiplied.
  • 00:02:18.030 --> 00:02:22.968
  • Now, if a prophet is someone whogives us a God perspective, a
  • 00:02:23.001 --> 00:02:25.637
  • false prophet is someone whogives us a perspective as if it
  • 00:02:25.671 --> 00:02:28.907
  • were from God's vantage point,but it's wrong.
  • 00:02:28.941 --> 00:02:32.511
  • It's inaccurate.
  • 00:02:32.544 --> 00:02:34.880
  • Now, the New Testament clearlyteaches us that this present age
  • 00:02:34.913 --> 00:02:38.383
  • is coming to a conclusion; thattime is not infinite.
  • 00:02:38.417 --> 00:02:41.086
  • We're not going on forever andever, grasshopper; that the
  • 00:02:41.119 --> 00:02:46.658
  • final act is going to be an openconflict between Satan's
  • 00:02:46.692 --> 00:02:51.096
  • kingdom, centered in some veryhigh profile individuals: an
  • 00:02:51.129 --> 00:02:54.633
  • antichrist, a world leader, andhis religious sidekick, a
  • 00:02:54.666 --> 00:03:02.641
  • false prophet.
  • 00:03:02.674 --> 00:03:04.643
  • And the conflict will be betweenthem and God's people in
  • 00:03:04.676 --> 00:03:07.479
  • the earth.
  • 00:03:07.512 --> 00:03:10.148
  • And then the punch line is thatJesus returns to the earth as
  • 00:03:10.182 --> 00:03:14.453
  • King and Judge of all in defenseof his people.
  • 00:03:14.486 --> 00:03:20.092
  • Now, this conclusion of this agecan be understood in terms of a
  • 00:03:20.125 --> 00:03:25.631
  • conflict between the true andthe false.
  • 00:03:25.664 --> 00:03:29.268
  • It's not about a grey area.
  • 00:03:29.301 --> 00:03:30.602
  • It's not about a broad middle.
  • 00:03:30.636 --> 00:03:32.671
  • We're repeatedly told inScripture about this period of
  • 00:03:32.704 --> 00:03:34.973
  • time so that we can be prepared.
  • 00:03:35.007 --> 00:03:38.076
  • We're told there's gonna be anintense season of darkness
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:41.947
  • defined by unprecedentedimmorality,
  • 00:03:41.980 --> 00:03:44.816
  • perversion, violence.
  • 00:03:44.850 --> 00:03:47.452
  • There'll be a markeddeterioration of human character
  • 00:03:47.486 --> 00:03:50.122
  • and it will happen rapidly.
  • 00:03:50.155 --> 00:03:53.425
  • But don't be filled withdespair, at the same time that's
  • 00:03:53.458 --> 00:03:55.761
  • happening we're told there'll bean unprecedented harvest of
  • 00:03:55.794 --> 00:03:58.797
  • righteousness with more peopleaccepting Jesus of Nazareth as
  • 00:03:58.830 --> 00:04:03.368
  • Lord and Savior than any othertime in human history.
  • 00:04:03.402 --> 00:04:07.706
  • I'm of the opinion we'll seemore people come into the
  • 00:04:07.739 --> 00:04:09.841
  • kingdom of God in that lastgreat harvest than all that have
  • 00:04:09.875 --> 00:04:13.278
  • come through in all the seasonsprior to that.
  • 00:04:13.312 --> 00:04:17.749
  • So both the light and thedarkness are gonna be expanding
  • 00:04:17.783 --> 00:04:20.752
  • in that same season.
  • 00:04:20.786 --> 00:04:23.522
  • Now, Jesus gave us some verydirect warnings about this
  • 00:04:23.555 --> 00:04:26.758
  • period of time.
  • 00:04:26.792 --> 00:04:28.093
  • In Matthew 24, in verse 10, hesaid, "At that time."
  • 00:04:28.126 --> 00:04:31.897
  • And the time he's discussing isthe time that precedes
  • 00:04:31.930 --> 00:04:35.100
  • immediately his return to theearth.
  • 00:04:35.133 --> 00:04:36.735
  • "At that time, many will turnaway.
  • 00:04:36.768 --> 00:04:40.806
  • Many will turn away from thefaith and will betray and hate
  • 00:04:40.839 --> 00:04:43.175
  • each other.
  • 00:04:43.208 --> 00:04:44.543
  • And many false prophets willappear and deceive many people."
  • 00:04:44.576 --> 00:04:48.714
  • He used the word "many" threetimes.
  • 00:04:48.747 --> 00:04:50.916
  • He said, "Many will turn awayfrom the faith, many false
  • 00:04:50.949 --> 00:04:54.286
  • prophets will appear, and manywill be deceived.
  • 00:04:54.319 --> 00:04:58.757
  • And because of the increase ofwickedness, the love of most
  • 00:04:58.790 --> 00:05:00.959
  • will grow cold, but he whostands firm to the end will be
  • 00:05:00.992 --> 00:05:03.795
  • saved and this gospel of thekingdom will be preached in the
  • 00:05:03.829 --> 00:05:07.032
  • whole world as a testimony toall nations and then the end
  • 00:05:07.065 --> 00:05:09.801
  • will come."
  • 00:05:09.835 --> 00:05:11.169
  • If you want a big picture, whatshould we do if we imagine we're
  • 00:05:11.203 --> 00:05:13.705
  • approaching the end of the age?
  • 00:05:13.739 --> 00:05:15.073
  • Do everything in your power totell the story of the gospel of
  • 00:05:15.107 --> 00:05:18.110
  • the kingdom.
  • 00:05:18.143 --> 00:05:19.845
  • Tell it to the end of yourworld.
  • 00:05:19.878 --> 00:05:22.714
  • God may not have sent you to theend of the world so you tell the
  • 00:05:22.748 --> 00:05:26.017
  • story to the end of your world,that everybody in your sphere of
  • 00:05:26.051 --> 00:05:28.854
  • influence, everybody that willcare about your opinion, let
  • 00:05:28.887 --> 00:05:31.857
  • them know your story of advocacyfor the gospel of the kingdom.
  • 00:05:31.890 --> 00:05:36.361
  • It will accelerate the return ofthe King.
  • 00:05:36.395 --> 00:05:41.500
  • Matthew chapter 7, Jesus isspeaking.
  • 00:05:41.533 --> 00:05:43.802
  • Verse 15, "Watch out for falseprophets.
  • 00:05:43.835 --> 00:05:47.305
  • They come to you in sheep'sclothing, but inwardly they're
  • 00:05:47.339 --> 00:05:50.909
  • ferocious wolves.
  • 00:05:50.942 --> 00:05:52.878
  • By their fruits, you'llrecognize them.
  • 00:05:52.911 --> 00:05:55.247
  • Do people pick grapes fromthornbushes or figs
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:57.983
  • from thistles?"
  • 00:05:58.016 --> 00:05:59.851
  • Watch out for false prophets.
  • 00:05:59.885 --> 00:06:01.186
  • He says they're deceptive.
  • 00:06:01.219 --> 00:06:02.554
  • They will not present with theirtrue intent.
  • 00:06:02.587 --> 00:06:07.359
  • They will come packaged inharmless packages, but he said
  • 00:06:07.392 --> 00:06:12.697
  • in reality they're ferociouspredators.
  • 00:06:12.731 --> 00:06:16.368
  • "Be alert," he said.
  • 00:06:16.401 --> 00:06:17.736
  • He didn't say that we wouldn'tinteract with them.
  • 00:06:17.769 --> 00:06:20.238
  • He didn't say our relationshipwith him would deliver us from
  • 00:06:20.272 --> 00:06:23.308
  • the interactions.
  • 00:06:23.341 --> 00:06:25.310
  • He said they'll be deceptive.
  • 00:06:25.343 --> 00:06:26.711
  • They'll appear harmless, butthey'll be quite the opposite.
  • 00:06:26.745 --> 00:06:29.581
  • And he said the best indicatorisn't the label they wear, or
  • 00:06:29.614 --> 00:06:32.818
  • the building in which they sit,or the language they use.
  • 00:06:32.851 --> 00:06:35.821
  • The best indicator of their trueintent is the fruit of
  • 00:06:35.854 --> 00:06:39.691
  • their lives.
  • 00:06:39.724 --> 00:06:43.094
  • Now, a couple of thingsimmediately come to mind.
  • 00:06:43.128 --> 00:06:45.764
  • The fruit of the Spirit, it'sabout the character that is
  • 00:06:45.797 --> 00:06:47.866
  • reflected in you by the presenceof the Spirit of God: love, joy,
  • 00:06:47.899 --> 00:06:51.436
  • peace, patience, goodness,gentleness, self-control.
  • 00:06:51.470 --> 00:06:53.772
  • "Against those things," it says,"there is no law."
  • 00:06:53.805 --> 00:06:56.808
  • Those things only emerge in yourlife because you choose to say
  • 00:06:56.842 --> 00:06:59.945
  • no to your carnal nature and tosay yes to the Spirit of God,
  • 00:06:59.978 --> 00:07:03.615
  • and you intentionally cultivatethem.
  • 00:07:03.648 --> 00:07:05.517
  • Sitting in church will not causethe fruit of the Spirit to grow
  • 00:07:05.550 --> 00:07:08.053
  • in your life.
  • 00:07:08.086 --> 00:07:09.821
  • You can be a selfish,self-absorbed, carnal person and
  • 00:07:09.855 --> 00:07:13.959
  • sit in church every time thedoors open.
  • 00:07:13.992 --> 00:07:17.996
  • Don't let labels, don't let aChristian vocabulary.
  • 00:07:18.029 --> 00:07:21.967
  • The fruit of our lives, theevidence of what we've done.
  • 00:07:22.000 --> 00:07:29.641
  • Now, those were Jesus's warningsto us.
  • 00:07:29.674 --> 00:07:31.743
  • I want to take a minute andunpack with you a little bit
  • 00:07:31.776 --> 00:07:34.045
  • about the nature of falseprophets because I don't think
  • 00:07:34.079 --> 00:07:36.882
  • it's understood very well by thecontemporary church.
  • 00:07:36.915 --> 00:07:40.919
  • And to do that, I want to goback to the Hebrew prophets of
  • 00:07:40.952 --> 00:07:44.656
  • the Hebrew Bible, Jeremiahchapter 14.
  • 00:07:44.689 --> 00:07:46.791
  • And Jeremiah is a prophet inJerusalem.
  • 00:07:46.825 --> 00:07:51.496
  • The primary message of his life,his life message to the
  • 00:07:51.530 --> 00:07:54.266
  • inhabitants of Jerusalem is,"Judgment is coming upon you."
  • 00:07:54.299 --> 00:07:57.402
  • Jeremiah's role is verydifficult.
  • 00:07:57.435 --> 00:07:59.638
  • Jeremiah 14, and verse 11, "TheLord said to me, 'Do not pray
  • 00:07:59.671 --> 00:08:05.677
  • for the wellbeing of thispeople.'"
  • 00:08:05.710 --> 00:08:08.780
  • That's antithetical to how weunderstand our
  • 00:08:08.813 --> 00:08:11.449
  • interaction together.
  • 00:08:11.483 --> 00:08:13.418
  • It's just the opposite of whatwe've been trained in.
  • 00:08:13.451 --> 00:08:15.887
  • God said to Jeremiah, "Do notpray for the wellbeing of
  • 00:08:15.921 --> 00:08:19.491
  • this people."
  • 00:08:19.524 --> 00:08:20.859
  • And again, he's not prayingabout the Pagan Babylonians that
  • 00:08:20.892 --> 00:08:23.328
  • are coming their way.
  • 00:08:23.361 --> 00:08:24.663
  • These are the covenant people ofGod in the city of Jerusalem,
  • 00:08:24.696 --> 00:08:27.332
  • the descendants of Abraham,Isaac, and Jacob.
  • 00:08:27.365 --> 00:08:29.467
  • They would be the equivalent ofthe most religious amongst us.
  • 00:08:29.501 --> 00:08:33.405
  • And God's message is, "Do notpray for the wellbeing of
  • 00:08:33.438 --> 00:08:36.074
  • this people.
  • 00:08:36.107 --> 00:08:37.442
  • Although they fast, I will notlisten to their cry, and though
  • 00:08:37.475 --> 00:08:39.644
  • they offer burnt offerings andgrain offerings, I will not
  • 00:08:39.678 --> 00:08:41.947
  • accept them.
  • 00:08:41.980 --> 00:08:44.816
  • Instead, I will destroy themwith the sword, with famine
  • 00:08:44.849 --> 00:08:48.486
  • and plague."
  • 00:08:48.520 --> 00:08:51.489
  • And Jeremiah responds, "But Isaid, 'Sovereign Lord, the
  • 00:08:51.523 --> 00:08:54.659
  • prophets keep telling them, "Youwill not see the sword or
  • 00:08:54.693 --> 00:08:58.096
  • suffer famine.
  • 00:08:58.129 --> 00:08:59.431
  • Indeed, I will give you lastingpeace in this place."'" So
  • 00:08:59.464 --> 00:09:04.035
  • Jeremiah has a problem.
  • 00:09:04.069 --> 00:09:05.503
  • He's delivering a message that'sin opposition to the message
  • 00:09:05.537 --> 00:09:08.673
  • being delivered by a muchbroader group of people.
  • 00:09:08.707 --> 00:09:12.077
  • And it's a message that thepeople want to hear.
  • 00:09:12.110 --> 00:09:15.580
  • The others are saying, "God hasdelivered us time and
  • 00:09:15.614 --> 00:09:17.682
  • time again.
  • 00:09:17.716 --> 00:09:19.017
  • We have a history filled withGod's deliverance.
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:21.119
  • You don't need to change.
  • 00:09:21.152 --> 00:09:23.054
  • You don't need to pay attention.
  • 00:09:23.088 --> 00:09:24.389
  • You don't need to listen.
  • 00:09:24.422 --> 00:09:25.991
  • Things will continue on asthey've always continued on."
  • 00:09:26.024 --> 00:09:29.027
  • And Jeremiah has a differentmessage and God says, "Don't
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:33.598
  • pray for these people anymore.
  • 00:09:33.632 --> 00:09:35.900
  • I'm not gonna listen to them."
  • 00:09:35.934 --> 00:09:38.637
  • And Jeremiah is pleading theircase.
  • 00:09:38.670 --> 00:09:41.006
  • He's saying, "But God, they haveall these false prophets telling
  • 00:09:41.039 --> 00:09:47.012
  • them what they wanna hear."
  • 00:09:47.045 --> 00:09:51.583
  • "Then the Lord said, 'Theprophets are prophesying lies in
  • 00:09:51.616 --> 00:09:57.756
  • my name.
  • 00:09:57.789 --> 00:09:59.557
  • I haven't sent them, orappointed them, or spoken
  • 00:09:59.591 --> 00:10:03.294
  • to them.
  • 00:10:03.328 --> 00:10:04.629
  • They are prophesying to youfalse visions, divinations,
  • 00:10:04.663 --> 00:10:07.432
  • idolatries, and the delusions oftheir own minds.'"
  • 00:10:07.465 --> 00:10:14.739
  • "There's messaging being givingto my people," he said, "that
  • 00:10:14.773 --> 00:10:18.076
  • have nothing to do with me."
  • 00:10:18.109 --> 00:10:22.080
  • It's the fabrication of theirown minds, of their own intents,
  • 00:10:22.113 --> 00:10:27.519
  • of their own desires.
  • 00:10:27.552 --> 00:10:32.190
  • "And the people they areprophesying to will be thrown
  • 00:10:32.223 --> 00:10:34.926
  • out into the streets ofJerusalem because of the famine
  • 00:10:34.959 --> 00:10:38.363
  • and the sword.
  • 00:10:38.396 --> 00:10:40.031
  • And there'll be no one to burythem, or their wives, or their
  • 00:10:40.065 --> 00:10:43.668
  • sons, or their daughters.
  • 00:10:43.702 --> 00:10:47.038
  • I'll pour out on them thecalamity they deserve."
  • 00:10:47.072 --> 00:10:52.010
  • I would call your attention tothe reality that God expected
  • 00:10:52.043 --> 00:10:56.314
  • the people to discern betweenthe true and the false.
  • 00:10:56.347 --> 00:11:03.555
  • The responsibility forunderstanding the message that
  • 00:11:03.588 --> 00:11:06.124
  • was from the Lord fell upon thepeople, and the consequence for
  • 00:11:06.157 --> 00:11:11.830
  • listening to the false was thejudgment of God.
  • 00:11:11.863 --> 00:11:19.137
  • In fact, I wanna submit to youthat false prophets may or may
  • 00:11:19.170 --> 00:11:22.540
  • not be religious characters atall.
  • 00:11:22.574 --> 00:11:25.844
  • They'll be influential voiceswhich mislead people into
  • 00:11:25.877 --> 00:11:29.614
  • imagining wrong things aboutGod.
  • 00:11:29.647 --> 00:11:33.985
  • I want you to think about that,that false prophets don't have
  • 00:11:34.018 --> 00:11:36.855
  • to wear religious garb, andstand in religious buildings,
  • 00:11:36.888 --> 00:11:41.326
  • and preside over religioussurfaces.
  • 00:11:41.359 --> 00:11:44.929
  • False prophets is any voice thatdelivers us a perspective that
  • 00:11:44.963 --> 00:11:49.601
  • leads us in a direction awayfrom God.
  • 00:11:49.634 --> 00:11:54.172
  • Jeremiah 23, and verse 15, "Thisis what the Lord Almighty says
  • 00:11:54.205 --> 00:11:58.143
  • concerning the prophets: 'I'llmake them eat bitter food and
  • 00:11:58.176 --> 00:12:01.846
  • drink poisoned water becausefrom the prophets of Jerusalem
  • 00:12:01.880 --> 00:12:05.316
  • ungodliness has spreadthroughout the land.'"
  • 00:12:05.350 --> 00:12:09.587
  • See, any voice that causesungodliness to spread is an
  • 00:12:09.621 --> 00:12:14.192
  • expression of the false Christ,and the delivery system is a
  • 00:12:14.225 --> 00:12:18.897
  • false teacher or a falseprophet.
  • 00:12:18.930 --> 00:12:22.467
  • We've been too narrow in ourthinking.
  • 00:12:22.500 --> 00:12:24.769
  • We've been unguarded.
  • 00:12:24.803 --> 00:12:27.839
  • We've accepted opinions andattitudes.
  • 00:12:27.872 --> 00:12:29.440
  • In fact, we've aligned ourselveswith people who are clearly
  • 00:12:29.474 --> 00:12:32.877
  • ungodly and immoral because welike some other circumstances
  • 00:12:32.911 --> 00:12:36.915
  • about their life, their talents,or their abilities, or
  • 00:12:36.948 --> 00:12:39.250
  • their affluence.
  • 00:12:39.284 --> 00:12:42.620
  • And you know, the truth is inour culture for decades now,
  • 00:12:42.654 --> 00:12:46.257
  • pastors, and ministers, andpriests have had dwindling
  • 00:12:46.291 --> 00:12:48.927
  • influence in our culture anyway.
  • 00:12:48.960 --> 00:12:52.730
  • There was a time not on ourdistant past where on Monday
  • 00:12:52.764 --> 00:12:55.466
  • mornings in the leadingnewspapers of our nation, on the
  • 00:12:55.500 --> 00:12:58.770
  • front page they would print thesermon from the leading pulpit
  • 00:12:58.803 --> 00:13:02.473
  • of the city.
  • 00:13:02.507 --> 00:13:03.808
  • The formal influence of thechurch has been diminishing for
  • 00:13:03.842 --> 00:13:07.111
  • a long time.
  • 00:13:07.145 --> 00:13:10.915
  • What is the voice you listen to?
  • 00:13:10.949 --> 00:13:13.751
  • What is the authority in yourlife?
  • 00:13:13.785 --> 00:13:20.925
  • Allen Jackson: Hey, this isPastor Allen and we have a new

  • It's a collection of sermons andI reworked them to put it into a

  • coherent fashion.

  • I believe it'll be a strength toyou.
  • 00:13:33.905 --> 00:13:35.907
  • From the founding of our nationuntil today, in fact, before the
  • 00:13:35.940 --> 00:13:38.543
  • founding of our nation, whenWilliam Bradford came with the
  • 00:13:38.576 --> 00:13:40.912
  • Separatists, the Puritans, untiltoday, time and time again, God
  • 00:13:40.945 --> 00:13:45.516
  • has poured his Spirit out uponus as a people.
  • 00:13:45.550 --> 00:13:48.686
  • We have seen multiple awakeningsin our nation.

  • Allen Jackson: And it's adistortion of reality to suggest

  • that the liberties and freedomswe know are global.
  • 00:14:11.009 --> 00:14:13.645
  • And if the church isn't willingto stand up and be an advocate

  • Allen Jackson: In 2 Kingschapter 23, the king in Israel
  • 00:14:49.247 --> 00:14:53.551
  • is Josiah.
  • 00:14:53.584 --> 00:14:55.420
  • He's known as a reformer.
  • 00:14:55.453 --> 00:14:56.788
  • He became king when he was aboy, but he had a heart for
  • 00:14:56.821 --> 00:15:00.058
  • the Lord.
  • 00:15:00.091 --> 00:15:02.293
  • And he orders the temple inJerusalem to be remodeled.
  • 00:15:02.327 --> 00:15:04.696
  • The temple had fallen intodisrepair.
  • 00:15:04.729 --> 00:15:06.531
  • Can you imagine the temple inthe heart of the city of
  • 00:15:06.564 --> 00:15:09.667
  • Jerusalem had fallen into suchdisrepair the doors didn't work.
  • 00:15:09.701 --> 00:15:15.106
  • And while they're repairing thetemple, they find hidden in the
  • 00:15:15.139 --> 00:15:17.909
  • wall the book of the law.
  • 00:15:17.942 --> 00:15:21.079
  • They have lost the Bible andnobody noticed.
  • 00:15:21.112 --> 00:15:27.719
  • Listen to what has-- this is 2Kings 23, verse 1, "The king
  • 00:15:27.752 --> 00:15:30.822
  • called together all the eldersof Judah and Jerusalem.
  • 00:15:30.855 --> 00:15:34.025
  • And he went up to the temple ofthe Lord with the men of Judah,
  • 00:15:34.058 --> 00:15:37.996
  • and the people of Jerusalem, thepriests and the prophets, and
  • 00:15:38.029 --> 00:15:40.365
  • all the people from the least tothe greatest.
  • 00:15:40.398 --> 00:15:43.167
  • And he read in their hearing allthe words of the book of the
  • 00:15:43.201 --> 00:15:45.536
  • covenant which had been found inthe temple of the Lord.
  • 00:15:45.570 --> 00:15:50.008
  • And the king stood by the pillarand renewed the covenant in the
  • 00:15:50.041 --> 00:15:52.577
  • presence of the Lord-- to followthe Lord and to keep his
  • 00:15:52.610 --> 00:15:55.646
  • commands, his regulations, anddecrees with all of his heart
  • 00:15:55.680 --> 00:15:58.983
  • and with all of his soul, andthus confirming the words of the
  • 00:15:59.017 --> 00:16:02.720
  • covenant written in the book."
  • 00:16:02.754 --> 00:16:05.556
  • So the beginning of this reformcomes with an awareness of the
  • 00:16:05.590 --> 00:16:09.460
  • Word of God.
  • 00:16:09.494 --> 00:16:10.795
  • I don't believe we can overestimate the value of putting
  • 00:16:10.828 --> 00:16:13.698
  • God's Word in your heart.
  • 00:16:13.731 --> 00:16:16.534
  • Without it, you really have nodefense against deception.
  • 00:16:16.567 --> 00:16:21.406
  • Now, he has much to lose.
  • 00:16:21.439 --> 00:16:24.442
  • It's a tremendous risk for him.
  • 00:16:24.475 --> 00:16:27.311
  • I won't read it all.
  • 00:16:27.345 --> 00:16:28.646
  • I'll give you just a sample.
  • 00:16:28.679 --> 00:16:30.014
  • It says, "The king ordered thehigh priest, and the priest next
  • 00:16:30.048 --> 00:16:32.083
  • in rank, and the doorkeeper toremove from the temple of the
  • 00:16:32.116 --> 00:16:35.486
  • Lord all the articles made forBaal, and Asherah, and all the
  • 00:16:35.520 --> 00:16:39.123
  • starry hosts."
  • 00:16:39.157 --> 00:16:40.491
  • Well, it says, "He also toredown the quarters on the Temple
  • 00:16:40.525 --> 00:16:42.693
  • Mount around the temple.
  • 00:16:42.727 --> 00:16:44.062
  • He tore down the quarters of themale shrine prostitutes, which
  • 00:16:44.095 --> 00:16:47.865
  • were in the temple of the Lordand where the women did weaving
  • 00:16:47.899 --> 00:16:50.501
  • for Asherah."
  • 00:16:50.535 --> 00:16:51.836
  • There was perversion andimmorality attached to the
  • 00:16:51.869 --> 00:16:54.672
  • temple and the priests and theleaders of the nation didn't
  • 00:16:54.705 --> 00:16:58.209
  • say, "Maybe that's a bad idea."
  • 00:16:58.242 --> 00:17:02.847
  • There were such broad groups ofpeople either enjoying the
  • 00:17:02.880 --> 00:17:05.983
  • ungodliness, profiting from it,prospering from it, that the
  • 00:17:06.017 --> 00:17:14.058
  • Word of God was so far in thedistance it had been misplaced
  • 00:17:14.092 --> 00:17:17.428
  • and nobody missed it; thatnobody had the courage to
  • 00:17:17.462 --> 00:17:21.833
  • stand up.
  • 00:17:21.866 --> 00:17:24.268
  • See, I'm asking you to thinkabout false prophets in a
  • 00:17:24.302 --> 00:17:26.337
  • new way.
  • 00:17:26.370 --> 00:17:28.906
  • I'm asking you to think aboutyour Bible in a new way.
  • 00:17:28.940 --> 00:17:30.808
  • The reading of Scriptureinitiates change in your heart,
  • 00:17:30.842 --> 00:17:33.678
  • in how you see the world.
  • 00:17:33.711 --> 00:17:35.213
  • It gives you a choice.
  • 00:17:35.246 --> 00:17:36.581
  • You can choose a God perspectiveor you can choose the voices of
  • 00:17:36.614 --> 00:17:39.817
  • the world.
  • 00:17:39.851 --> 00:17:41.152
  • But understand this, you'remaking a choice every day.
  • 00:17:41.185 --> 00:17:46.057
  • What is the authority in yourlife?
  • 00:17:46.090 --> 00:17:50.027
  • I want to take you back toJesus's counsel.
  • 00:17:50.061 --> 00:17:52.330
  • It's Matthew 7, "Watch out forfalse prophets.
  • 00:17:52.363 --> 00:17:55.466
  • They'll come to you in sheep'sclothing.
  • 00:17:55.500 --> 00:17:56.834
  • Inwardly they are ferociouswolves.
  • 00:17:56.868 --> 00:17:58.169
  • By their fruits, you'llrecognize them.
  • 00:17:58.202 --> 00:18:00.338
  • Every tree that doesn't beargood fruit is cut down and
  • 00:18:00.371 --> 00:18:02.840
  • thrown into the fire.
  • 00:18:02.874 --> 00:18:04.208
  • Thus by their fruit, you'llrecognize them.
  • 00:18:04.242 --> 00:18:06.844
  • Not everyone who says to me,'Lord, Lord!'
  • 00:18:06.878 --> 00:18:08.713
  • will enter the kingdom ofheaven.
  • 00:18:08.746 --> 00:18:10.882
  • But only he who does the will ofmy Father who is in heaven.
  • 00:18:10.915 --> 00:18:15.286
  • Many will say to me on that day,'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy
  • 00:18:15.319 --> 00:18:18.356
  • in your name and in your namedrive out demons and perform
  • 00:18:18.389 --> 00:18:21.192
  • many miracles?'
  • 00:18:21.225 --> 00:18:22.793
  • And I'll tell them plainly, 'Inever knew you.
  • 00:18:22.827 --> 00:18:25.997
  • Away from me, you evildoers.'"
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:30.067
  • Again, our framework has beeninadequate.
  • 00:18:30.101 --> 00:18:32.737
  • We've been very casual withthis.
  • 00:18:32.770 --> 00:18:34.972
  • Recite a prayer, take a dip inthe pool, and then articulate a
  • 00:18:35.006 --> 00:18:39.443
  • position that provides yousecurity and live however
  • 00:18:39.477 --> 00:18:43.214
  • you choose.
  • 00:18:43.247 --> 00:18:45.016
  • Jesus gives us a very differentmessage.
  • 00:18:45.049 --> 00:18:48.186
  • In fact, I wanna submit to you,if I can do it in plain words,
  • 00:18:48.219 --> 00:18:50.721
  • we need to recalibrate our fruitmeter.
  • 00:18:50.755 --> 00:18:55.059
  • The one we've been using is notadequate.
  • 00:18:55.092 --> 00:18:58.396
  • We need discernment.
  • 00:18:58.429 --> 00:19:00.064
  • We need Spirit-led discernmentin our lives.
  • 00:19:00.097 --> 00:19:03.401
  • 2020 is a year that's teachingus a great deal about listening,
  • 00:19:03.434 --> 00:19:07.905
  • who to listen to, want to listento.
  • 00:19:07.939 --> 00:19:11.309
  • Each day we're having to learnto listen to the Lord.
  • 00:19:11.342 --> 00:19:14.612
  • If you're in a positionresponsible for making
  • 00:19:14.645 --> 00:19:16.380
  • decisions, this is not an easy--this is not an easy time.
  • 00:19:16.414 --> 00:19:19.383
  • You have to make decisions everyday.
  • 00:19:19.417 --> 00:19:22.053
  • And it seems to me that alldecisions have loud voices of
  • 00:19:22.086 --> 00:19:24.555
  • complaint attached to them.
  • 00:19:24.589 --> 00:19:26.724
  • No matter which one you choose,somebody's gonna go, "I didn't
  • 00:19:26.757 --> 00:19:28.392
  • like that."
  • 00:19:28.426 --> 00:19:30.561
  • And they're usually hidingbehind a keyboard someplace that
  • 00:19:30.595 --> 00:19:32.964
  • you can't see.
  • 00:19:32.997 --> 00:19:34.532
  • There are many in the shadowschirping.
  • 00:19:34.565 --> 00:19:37.368
  • And the result of all of this,all the confusion and the
  • 00:19:37.401 --> 00:19:39.804
  • multiple voices, is many, many,many, many people have simply
  • 00:19:39.837 --> 00:19:43.608
  • stopped moving, stopped trying.
  • 00:19:43.641 --> 00:19:47.678
  • I think we're gonna wait it out.
  • 00:19:47.712 --> 00:19:51.449
  • I don't believe that will beeffective because I believe the
  • 00:19:51.482 --> 00:19:55.019
  • forces, the spirits that haveentered the disruption and
  • 00:19:55.052 --> 00:19:58.489
  • caused the confusion don'tintend for us to reemerge.
  • 00:19:58.522 --> 00:20:04.061
  • We're gonna have to learn tolisten better.
  • 00:20:04.095 --> 00:20:07.198
  • I'll give you one example.
  • 00:20:07.231 --> 00:20:08.566
  • Remember Saul of Tarsus?
  • 00:20:08.599 --> 00:20:09.900
  • By the way, Jesus recruited him.
  • 00:20:09.934 --> 00:20:14.905
  • All right, well, after Jesusrecruits him, he goes to
  • 00:20:14.939 --> 00:20:16.774
  • Jerusalem, 'cause that's kind ofthe center of business at this
  • 00:20:16.807 --> 00:20:19.076
  • point in time, and he gets toJerusalem.
  • 00:20:19.110 --> 00:20:21.846
  • It says, "When he came toJerusalem, he tried to join
  • 00:20:21.879 --> 00:20:23.614
  • the disciples."
  • 00:20:23.648 --> 00:20:25.182
  • I mean, after all, Jesusrecruited him.
  • 00:20:25.216 --> 00:20:26.517
  • He said, "I want you to go toall the non-Jewish people.
  • 00:20:26.550 --> 00:20:28.486
  • That's your deal."
  • 00:20:28.519 --> 00:20:30.354
  • "So he goes to Jerusalem, thecenter of the church, and he
  • 00:20:30.388 --> 00:20:32.556
  • tried to join the disciples, butthey were afraid of him.
  • 00:20:32.590 --> 00:20:36.661
  • They didn't believe he wasreally a disciple."
  • 00:20:36.694 --> 00:20:38.329
  • Smart guys, 'cause in the seasonimmediately preceding, last
  • 00:20:38.362 --> 00:20:46.070
  • week, he was taking people likeus and dragging them off to jail
  • 00:20:46.103 --> 00:20:50.308
  • and prison, men and women.
  • 00:20:50.341 --> 00:20:52.910
  • He was happy when they killedpeople like us.
  • 00:20:52.943 --> 00:20:56.814
  • Then he met Jesus.
  • 00:20:56.847 --> 00:20:59.583
  • Then he rolled in and he said,"I'm one of you."
  • 00:20:59.617 --> 00:21:06.757
  • And Peter's going, "Nah."
  • 00:21:06.791 --> 00:21:11.696
  • "So Barnabas took him andbrought him to the apostles, and
  • 00:21:11.729 --> 00:21:14.432
  • he told them how Saul on hisjourney had seen the Lord and
  • 00:21:14.465 --> 00:21:16.767
  • that the Lord had spoken to him,and how in Damascus he had
  • 00:21:16.801 --> 00:21:19.637
  • preached fearlessly in the nameof Jesus."
  • 00:21:19.670 --> 00:21:21.839
  • A little bit of fruit.
  • 00:21:21.872 --> 00:21:26.510
  • "So Saul stayed on with them andmoved about freely in Jerusalem,
  • 00:21:26.544 --> 00:21:29.513
  • speaking boldly in the name ofthe Lord.
  • 00:21:29.547 --> 00:21:33.384
  • He talked and debated with theGrecian Jews, but they tried to
  • 00:21:33.417 --> 00:21:36.854
  • kill him."
  • 00:21:36.887 --> 00:21:39.757
  • Now, in his journey as a Christfollower, he's still got on
  • 00:21:39.790 --> 00:21:42.126
  • training wheels.
  • 00:21:42.159 --> 00:21:44.662
  • He's in Jerusalem with the innercircle for the first time and
  • 00:21:44.695 --> 00:21:48.766
  • they turn him loose for a fewdays, and he gets in a debate
  • 00:21:48.799 --> 00:21:51.836
  • and they try to kill him.
  • 00:21:51.869 --> 00:21:53.938
  • "When the brothers learned ofthis, they took him down to
  • 00:21:53.971 --> 00:21:55.639
  • Caesarea and sent him toTarsus."
  • 00:21:55.673 --> 00:22:01.612
  • Now, Saul of Tarsus is theApostle Paul, recruited by
  • 00:22:01.645 --> 00:22:06.317
  • Jesus, transformed.
  • 00:22:06.350 --> 00:22:09.253
  • He arrives in Jerusalem and theyare struggling.
  • 00:22:09.286 --> 00:22:13.324
  • They're tryin' to understand whohe is, what's happening.
  • 00:22:13.357 --> 00:22:17.194
  • We've been a bit smug.
  • 00:22:17.228 --> 00:22:18.596
  • We've been arrogant.
  • 00:22:18.629 --> 00:22:21.599
  • We've been prideful.
  • 00:22:21.632 --> 00:22:22.967
  • We've wanted a punch list wherewe could say, "If you meet these
  • 00:22:23.000 --> 00:22:25.669
  • criteria, we listen to you, andif you don't, we will shun you."
  • 00:22:25.703 --> 00:22:29.373
  • He's a murderer, a violent,angry man.
  • 00:22:29.407 --> 00:22:33.411
  • He's been trained by theopposition.
  • 00:22:33.444 --> 00:22:36.847
  • But he met Jesus.
  • 00:22:36.881 --> 00:22:39.917
  • We're gonna have to recalibrateour fruit meters 'cause we've
  • 00:22:39.950 --> 00:22:45.156
  • tolerated voices that have ledus towards wickedness,
  • 00:22:45.189 --> 00:22:47.858
  • ungodliness, and immorality, andhave given us license, and
  • 00:22:47.892 --> 00:22:50.995
  • haven't called us to repentancebecause they met our punch list.
  • 00:22:51.028 --> 00:22:58.502
  • God be merciful to us.
  • 00:22:58.536 --> 00:23:02.606
  • I want to close with a messagethat Jesus gave to two of
  • 00:23:02.640 --> 00:23:05.142
  • his churches.
  • 00:23:05.176 --> 00:23:06.477
  • "To the angel of the church ofSardis, write: 'These are the
  • 00:23:06.510 --> 00:23:08.779
  • words of him who holds the sevenSpirits of God and the
  • 00:23:08.813 --> 00:23:11.182
  • seven stars.
  • 00:23:11.215 --> 00:23:12.550
  • I know your deeds.
  • 00:23:12.583 --> 00:23:13.884
  • You have a reputation of beingalive, but you're dead.
  • 00:23:13.918 --> 00:23:16.554
  • Wake up.
  • 00:23:16.587 --> 00:23:18.522
  • Strengthen what remains and isabout to die, for I have not
  • 00:23:18.556 --> 00:23:21.292
  • found your deeds complete in thesight of my God.'"
  • 00:23:21.325 --> 00:23:24.228
  • And his message to them is,"Remember what you have received
  • 00:23:24.261 --> 00:23:27.465
  • and heard.
  • 00:23:27.498 --> 00:23:28.799
  • Obey it and repent."
  • 00:23:28.833 --> 00:23:31.936
  • Same chapter, chapter 3, "To thechurch-- the angel of the church
  • 00:23:31.969 --> 00:23:35.039
  • in Laodicea, write these words:'I know your deeds.
  • 00:23:35.072 --> 00:23:39.743
  • You're neither hot or cold.'"
  • 00:23:39.777 --> 00:23:42.179
  • Good, middle ground folk.
  • 00:23:42.213 --> 00:23:45.649
  • "I wish you were one or theother.
  • 00:23:45.683 --> 00:23:46.984
  • I'd rather you be cold thanlukewarm.
  • 00:23:47.017 --> 00:23:51.689
  • So because you're lukewarm,neither hot or cold, I'm about
  • 00:23:51.722 --> 00:23:53.958
  • to spit you out of my mouth.
  • 00:23:53.991 --> 00:23:55.526
  • You say, 'I'm rich and I'veacquired wealth, and I don't
  • 00:23:55.559 --> 00:23:57.795
  • need a thing,' but you don'trealize that you're wretched,
  • 00:23:57.828 --> 00:24:01.599
  • pitiful, poor, blind, andnaked."
  • 00:24:01.632 --> 00:24:04.201
  • You gotta be really messed up tobe blind, naked, and poor and
  • 00:24:04.235 --> 00:24:07.505
  • not know it.
  • 00:24:07.538 --> 00:24:12.009
  • That is deception.
  • 00:24:12.042 --> 00:24:15.045
  • And what is the belief that theyhave such confidence in?
  • 00:24:15.079 --> 00:24:18.082
  • That they of acquired wealth,and therefore they don't
  • 00:24:18.115 --> 00:24:21.886
  • need anything.
  • 00:24:21.919 --> 00:24:24.788
  • Can you think of anycontemporary messaging that says
  • 00:24:24.822 --> 00:24:27.091
  • to us if you're prosperous, andhappy, and you're shopping in
  • 00:24:27.124 --> 00:24:32.496
  • the right stores, and drivingthe right vehicles, that
  • 00:24:32.530 --> 00:24:34.865
  • you're good?
  • 00:24:34.899 --> 00:24:38.035
  • It sounds like a lot ofmessaging we hear, doesn't it?
  • 00:24:38.068 --> 00:24:43.073
  • Jesus said, "I counsel you tobuy from me gold refined in the
  • 00:24:43.107 --> 00:24:46.176
  • fire so you could become rich,and white clothes to wear, and a
  • 00:24:46.210 --> 00:24:53.984
  • salve for your eyes so you cancover your shameful nakedness.
  • 00:24:54.018 --> 00:25:00.224
  • Be earnest and repent."
