  • 00:00:05.397 --> 00:00:07.599
  • I've never been attackedby sheep.

  • in ways that cause no alarm.
  • 00:00:13.338 --> 00:00:16.008

  • Pastor Allen Jackson: Hey, it isso good to be with you again.
  • 00:00:55.380 --> 00:00:57.282
  • Our topic today is,"False Prophets."
  • 00:00:57.316 --> 00:00:59.952
  • Jesus warned us that before hereturned there would be many
  • 00:00:59.985 --> 00:01:03.021
  • false prophets and many peoplewould be deceived.
  • 00:01:03.055 --> 00:01:05.991
  • So we want to listen to whatJesus had to say and be prepared
  • 00:01:06.024 --> 00:01:08.460
  • in our hearts.
  • 00:01:08.494 --> 00:01:09.795
  • Biblically prophets are notprimarily foretellers, they're
  • 00:01:09.828 --> 00:01:12.931
  • not predictors of the future.
  • 00:01:12.965 --> 00:01:15.367
  • The prophets were the people whodelivered a God perspective to
  • 00:01:15.400 --> 00:01:19.071
  • their generation.
  • 00:01:19.104 --> 00:01:20.439
  • Now the Spirit of God would giveit application beyond their
  • 00:01:20.472 --> 00:01:22.574
  • lives, but the primary objectivewas to understand
  • 00:01:22.608 --> 00:01:25.410
  • God's perspective.
  • 00:01:25.444 --> 00:01:26.979
  • I want to suggest we desperatelyneed God's perspective
  • 00:01:27.012 --> 00:01:29.882
  • on our generation.
  • 00:01:29.915 --> 00:01:31.250
  • So don't be frightened bythe notion of a false prophet,
  • 00:01:31.283 --> 00:01:33.685
  • open your heart and say, God,let me see what you're doing.
  • 00:01:33.719 --> 00:01:36.288
  • It only makes sense to me ifthere's a spirit of antichrist
  • 00:01:36.321 --> 00:01:39.258
  • that wants to replicate Christwith false, that there would be
  • 00:01:39.291 --> 00:01:42.861
  • a false prophet for a true Godperspective.
  • 00:01:42.895 --> 00:01:45.097
  • We need God's wisdom to knowwhere his truth is, how to hear
  • 00:01:45.130 --> 00:01:47.799
  • it, how to recognize it, and howto walk in that truth today.
  • 00:01:47.833 --> 00:01:52.070
  • We're walking through a seasonof transition and God is
  • 00:01:52.104 --> 00:01:54.873
  • preparing his church for thegreatest harvest the world
  • 00:01:54.907 --> 00:01:57.209
  • has ever known.
  • 00:01:57.242 --> 00:01:58.577
  • His truth will help us.
  • 00:01:58.610 --> 00:01:59.912
  • Grab your Bible, get a notepad,open your heart, God has
  • 00:01:59.945 --> 00:02:02.981
  • something for you today.
  • 00:02:03.015 --> 00:02:04.316
  • Enjoy the lesson.
  • 00:02:04.349 --> 00:02:06.351
  • Pastor Allen Jackson: Now I needto ask you a question.
  • 00:02:06.385 --> 00:02:08.987
  • Do you imagine that God sendspunishment upon
  • 00:02:09.021 --> 00:02:12.391
  • his rebellious children?
  • 00:02:12.424 --> 00:02:17.663
  • The Romans were pagans, theyworshipped a whole pantheon
  • 00:02:17.696 --> 00:02:21.767
  • of gods.
  • 00:02:21.800 --> 00:02:25.237
  • If you're doing a comparativeanalysis you'd look at the
  • 00:02:25.270 --> 00:02:27.439
  • Romans, goin', they're far morewicked than the descendants of
  • 00:02:27.472 --> 00:02:30.542
  • Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,the Jewish people.
  • 00:02:30.576 --> 00:02:34.479
  • If somebody was deserving ofjudgment, as a casual observer
  • 00:02:34.513 --> 00:02:37.783
  • you will go, well the Romansociety is wicked, it's immoral,
  • 00:02:37.816 --> 00:02:40.786
  • it's ungodly.
  • 00:02:40.819 --> 00:02:43.455
  • But Jesus, our Lord, the head ofthe church, he is telling his
  • 00:02:43.488 --> 00:02:48.560
  • closest friends that the siege,the destruction that is coming
  • 00:02:48.594 --> 00:02:52.965
  • is the time of God's punishmentupon his people.
  • 00:02:52.998 --> 00:02:58.337
  • I would remind you, just in caseyou're not paying close
  • 00:02:58.370 --> 00:03:00.973
  • attention, this is Jesus in thegospel of Luke, this is not some
  • 00:03:01.006 --> 00:03:06.378
  • obscure Old Testament passage.
  • 00:03:06.411 --> 00:03:11.049
  • Again the question, do you havethe imagination that God would
  • 00:03:11.083 --> 00:03:16.088
  • discipline his people?
  • 00:03:16.121 --> 00:03:19.458
  • I've been saying for months nowthat the challenge we face isn't
  • 00:03:19.491 --> 00:03:22.394
  • because of the wickedness inour nation, the ungodliness.
  • 00:03:22.427 --> 00:03:25.264
  • the immorality, it's thecondition of the hearts
  • 00:03:25.297 --> 00:03:27.799
  • of God's peoplethat's troubling.
  • 00:03:27.833 --> 00:03:32.371
  • This is our assignment.
  • 00:03:32.404 --> 00:03:33.705
  • We are salt and light.
  • 00:03:33.739 --> 00:03:37.476
  • We struggle to find agreement,we struggle to unify our voices
  • 00:03:37.509 --> 00:03:43.649
  • and watch over the livesof the unborn.
  • 00:03:43.682 --> 00:03:47.519
  • We lose our voices when it'stime to talk about a biblical
  • 00:03:47.552 --> 00:03:50.355
  • view of marriage.
  • 00:03:50.389 --> 00:03:54.626
  • We tend to want to step back inthe shadows when a biblical
  • 00:03:54.660 --> 00:03:57.996
  • morality is discussed.
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:04:00.799
  • Folks, it's not that we'reperfect or we've led perfect
  • 00:04:00.832 --> 00:04:03.168
  • lives, through the blood ofJesus we've been washed
  • 00:04:03.201 --> 00:04:05.904
  • and cleansed and deliveredand our feet put on a path.
  • 00:04:05.937 --> 00:04:08.740
  • We've been made righteousand justified before God,
  • 00:04:08.774 --> 00:04:11.910
  • not because of something we'vedone, because of what Jesus did
  • 00:04:11.943 --> 00:04:15.013
  • for us through his redemptivework on the cross.
  • 00:04:15.047 --> 00:04:18.317
  • But having received thosebenefits, we have to hold out
  • 00:04:18.350 --> 00:04:21.420
  • the truth of God into the worldin which we live.
  • 00:04:21.453 --> 00:04:27.326
  • Luke chapter 21, I'm gonna usethe last verse we read as
  • 00:04:27.359 --> 00:04:31.730
  • the bridge.
  • 00:04:31.763 --> 00:04:33.098
  • Jesus said, they'll fall by thesword and will be taken as
  • 00:04:33.131 --> 00:04:35.967
  • prisoners to all the nations.
  • 00:04:36.001 --> 00:04:37.569
  • The historians tell us thatthere were so many Jews in the
  • 00:04:37.602 --> 00:04:39.805
  • Roman slave markets that theywere almost worthless.
  • 00:04:39.838 --> 00:04:43.375
  • And Jerusalem will be trampledon by the Gentiles until the
  • 00:04:43.408 --> 00:04:46.011
  • times of the Gentiles arefulfilled.
  • 00:04:46.044 --> 00:04:50.082
  • And now he turns his discourseto the end of the age.
  • 00:04:50.115 --> 00:04:53.151
  • There'll be signs in the sun andthe moon and the stars, and on
  • 00:04:53.185 --> 00:04:56.455
  • the earth nations will be inanguish and perplexity at the
  • 00:04:56.488 --> 00:04:59.191
  • roaring and tossing of the sea.
  • 00:04:59.224 --> 00:05:01.560
  • Men will faint from terror,apprehensive of what is coming
  • 00:05:01.593 --> 00:05:04.096
  • on the world.
  • 00:05:04.129 --> 00:05:06.732
  • For the heavenly bodies will beshaken.
  • 00:05:06.765 --> 00:05:09.368
  • And at that time they'll see theSon of man coming in a cloud
  • 00:05:09.401 --> 00:05:12.070
  • with power and great glory.
  • 00:05:12.104 --> 00:05:14.773
  • When these things begin to takeplace, stand up and lift up your
  • 00:05:14.806 --> 00:05:19.211
  • heads, because your redemptionis drawing near.
  • 00:05:19.244 --> 00:05:22.981
  • Now I'm gonna submit to you thatit's a warning symbol of the one
  • 00:05:23.014 --> 00:05:26.551
  • given to the first centuryJewish believers.
  • 00:05:26.585 --> 00:05:30.021
  • There's a timing phrase, Jesussaid, when these things begin to
  • 00:05:30.055 --> 00:05:32.791
  • take place.
  • 00:05:32.824 --> 00:05:35.460
  • There are other timing words.
  • 00:05:35.494 --> 00:05:36.828
  • He said, Jerusalem will betrampled on by the Gentiles
  • 00:05:36.862 --> 00:05:39.431
  • until the times of the Gentilesare fulfilled.
  • 00:05:39.464 --> 00:05:44.302
  • From 70 A.D.
  • 00:05:44.336 --> 00:05:46.471
  • when Titus and the Roman legionstook the City of Jerusalem,
  • 00:05:46.505 --> 00:05:50.342
  • until 1967, almost 2.000 years,Jerusalem was
  • 00:05:50.375 --> 00:05:55.981
  • under the authority of a seriesof Gentile dictators or empires.
  • 00:05:56.014 --> 00:06:01.953
  • For 2.000 years what Jesus saidwas true.
  • 00:06:01.987 --> 00:06:04.790
  • But in 1967, for the first timesince 70, it was the Six-day War
  • 00:06:04.823 --> 00:06:10.061
  • in June of 1967, the Israeliparatroopers, one of the most
  • 00:06:10.095 --> 00:06:13.865
  • elite units in the IDF, camethrough the lion's gate.
  • 00:06:13.899 --> 00:06:19.337
  • I met one of the men that was inthat group that day, he said,
  • 00:06:19.371 --> 00:06:21.840
  • we were the elite units inall of the Israeli forces.
  • 00:06:21.873 --> 00:06:25.277
  • And he said, when we wentthrough the gate that day,
  • 00:06:25.310 --> 00:06:26.912
  • we were young men.
  • 00:06:26.945 --> 00:06:28.246
  • And he said, there were tearsstreaming down our faces.
  • 00:06:28.280 --> 00:06:33.752
  • And they recorded the messagewhen they finally got to the
  • 00:06:33.785 --> 00:06:36.388
  • Temple Mount.
  • 00:06:36.421 --> 00:06:37.756
  • And they sent the word back tocommand through their radios,
  • 00:06:37.789 --> 00:06:40.759
  • we have the city.
  • 00:06:40.792 --> 00:06:43.161
  • We have the city.
  • 00:06:43.195 --> 00:06:46.731
  • Now Moshe Dayan, the Israelimilitary leader at that time,
  • 00:06:46.765 --> 00:06:50.001
  • the guy with the eyepatch,do you remember him?
  • 00:06:50.035 --> 00:06:51.470
  • You may have seen his picture,looks like Yul Brynner
  • 00:06:51.503 --> 00:06:54.072
  • with an eyepatch.
  • 00:06:54.105 --> 00:06:57.843
  • He made the suggestion, and hehad enough political clout to
  • 00:06:57.876 --> 00:07:00.512
  • implement it, that if they wouldreturn the Temple Mount, the
  • 00:07:00.545 --> 00:07:03.715
  • holiest place in all of Judaism,to the Muslims, because Islam
  • 00:07:03.748 --> 00:07:09.788
  • had built the mosque on thatTemple Mount, there'd been
  • 00:07:09.821 --> 00:07:12.691
  • a church there before Muhammadwas born.
  • 00:07:12.724 --> 00:07:14.559
  • I mean, it had been used byeverybody, but they had built
  • 00:07:14.593 --> 00:07:16.595
  • a mosque there.
  • 00:07:16.628 --> 00:07:17.963
  • They said, if we would return tothem the holiest place in our
  • 00:07:17.996 --> 00:07:21.099
  • faith, maybe it would be anexpression of peace significant
  • 00:07:21.132 --> 00:07:24.002
  • enough that we could all livetogether in peace.
  • 00:07:24.035 --> 00:07:29.040
  • You can't bargain withan unclean spirit.
  • 00:07:29.074 --> 00:07:34.112
  • So they gave the Temple Mountaway.
  • 00:07:34.145 --> 00:07:38.817
  • But '67 was the first time in2.000 years Jerusalem came back.
  • 00:07:38.850 --> 00:07:43.021
  • We've had a pretty significantbiblical event lately.
  • 00:07:43.054 --> 00:07:45.056
  • May 14th of 2018, at the urgingof our current administration,
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:51.229
  • the United States Embassy wasmoved to Jerusalem.
  • 00:07:51.263 --> 00:07:55.433
  • First embassy in the worldto recognize Jerusalem
  • 00:07:55.467 --> 00:07:59.971
  • as the capital ofthe Jewish people.
  • 00:08:00.005 --> 00:08:01.573
  • That happened to be on the70th anniversary of the modern
  • 00:08:01.606 --> 00:08:04.809
  • state of Israel.
  • 00:08:04.843 --> 00:08:06.845
  • But Jesus isn't done.
  • 00:08:06.878 --> 00:08:08.179
  • Luke 21, let's reada little further.
  • 00:08:08.213 --> 00:08:09.548
  • Verse 34.
  • 00:08:09.581 --> 00:08:10.882
  • Be careful, or your hearts willbe weighed down with
  • 00:08:10.916 --> 00:08:13.018
  • dissipation, drunkenness, andthe anxieties of life, and that
  • 00:08:13.051 --> 00:08:17.055
  • day will close on youunexpectedly like a trap.
  • 00:08:17.088 --> 00:08:19.858
  • That day being his return.
  • 00:08:19.891 --> 00:08:23.328
  • Now I believe he's speaking tous with the same kind of
  • 00:08:23.361 --> 00:08:25.297
  • specificity of direction that hedid to his first century
  • 00:08:25.330 --> 00:08:29.000
  • Jewish audience.
  • 00:08:29.034 --> 00:08:31.503
  • For it will come upon all thosewho live on the face of the
  • 00:08:31.536 --> 00:08:33.638
  • whole earth.
  • 00:08:33.672 --> 00:08:35.173
  • Be always on the watch and praythat you may be able to escape
  • 00:08:35.206 --> 00:08:38.209
  • all that's about to happen, andthat you may be able to stand
  • 00:08:38.243 --> 00:08:41.179
  • before the Son of man.
  • 00:08:41.212 --> 00:08:43.148
  • He gave us some very specificdirections, I'm not gonna
  • 00:08:43.181 --> 00:08:45.483
  • belabor them, but you cancheck me later, it's Luke 21,
  • 00:08:45.517 --> 00:08:48.620
  • verse 34 to 36, he said, becareful, guard your heart.
  • 00:08:48.653 --> 00:08:53.692
  • He didn't tell us to guard ourhomes, he told us there'd be
  • 00:08:53.725 --> 00:08:55.594
  • an increase in violence,in wickedness, but he said,
  • 00:08:55.627 --> 00:08:58.663
  • guard your heart, be careful.
  • 00:08:58.697 --> 00:09:00.765
  • And then he said, you have toavoid unnecessary weights.
  • 00:09:00.799 --> 00:09:03.635
  • And he wasn't talking about whatyou see when you stand
  • 00:09:03.668 --> 00:09:05.870
  • on the scale.
  • 00:09:05.904 --> 00:09:08.039
  • He said, be careful to avoiddissipation and drunkenness.
  • 00:09:08.073 --> 00:09:11.643
  • I checked the word to be sureI understood it.
  • 00:09:11.676 --> 00:09:13.511
  • The word that's translated,dissipation there, is connected
  • 00:09:13.545 --> 00:09:16.748
  • to the feeling that comes aftera drunken stupor.
  • 00:09:16.781 --> 00:09:22.487
  • Don't medicate, don't do thingsto help you avoid reality.
  • 00:09:22.520 --> 00:09:28.893
  • Whatever your medication ofchoice is, if it's alcohol,
  • 00:09:28.927 --> 00:09:31.930
  • or pharmaceuticals, or shopping,or entertainment,
  • 00:09:31.963 --> 00:09:35.333
  • or the pursuit of pleasure.
  • 00:09:35.367 --> 00:09:37.969
  • Avoid the unnecessary weights,the worries of life.
  • 00:09:38.003 --> 00:09:43.108
  • And then he described hisreturn, he said, it'll be
  • 00:09:43.141 --> 00:09:45.043
  • an unexpected event.
  • 00:09:45.076 --> 00:09:47.812
  • Be always on the watch.
  • 00:09:47.846 --> 00:09:49.681
  • And that doesn't just mean to bealerted, it has a unique meaning
  • 00:09:49.714 --> 00:09:52.617
  • in the New Testament in Jesus'teaching.
  • 00:09:52.651 --> 00:09:54.753
  • To watch was to pray,sacrificial seasons of prayer,
  • 00:09:54.786 --> 00:09:59.524
  • even into the night.
  • 00:09:59.557 --> 00:10:01.526
  • When he went to Gethsemane andhe said to Peter, will you pray
  • 00:10:01.559 --> 00:10:04.095
  • with me and he walked away, whenhe came back Peter was asleep.
  • 00:10:04.129 --> 00:10:06.698
  • He said, couldn't you even watchand pray?
  • 00:10:06.731 --> 00:10:08.767
  • Couldn't you stay awake and praywith me?
  • 00:10:08.800 --> 00:10:10.735
  • And the answer was, no,he really couldn't.
  • 00:10:10.769 --> 00:10:13.972
  • Jesus said, I don't need it,you're not praying for me,
  • 00:10:14.005 --> 00:10:15.874
  • you're praying for yourself.
  • 00:10:15.907 --> 00:10:18.643
  • See, the challenge we face iswe have so little awareness,
  • 00:10:18.677 --> 00:10:24.115
  • our listening is so indistinct,that we don't even realize
  • 00:10:24.149 --> 00:10:30.655
  • we need to pray for ourselves.
  • 00:10:30.689 --> 00:10:33.391
  • We imagine the problem iselsewhere.
  • 00:10:33.425 --> 00:10:37.228
  • We're so smug, we're so certainwe have a heritage.
  • 00:10:37.262 --> 00:10:41.466
  • We'll related in the same waythat the first century Jewish
  • 00:10:41.499 --> 00:10:44.703
  • audience could tell you all thereasons they were unique in
  • 00:10:44.736 --> 00:10:47.372
  • the world.
  • 00:10:47.405 --> 00:10:48.707
  • We fall into the same trap.
  • 00:10:48.740 --> 00:10:50.442
  • We've prayed the right prayers,we've been in the right
  • 00:10:50.475 --> 00:10:52.510
  • buildings, and we've said theright things, and we haven't
  • 00:10:52.544 --> 00:10:54.446
  • done the wrong things, we're noteven aware that we need to pray.
  • 00:10:54.479 --> 00:10:58.616
  • Always be on the watch,sacrificial seasons of prayer,
  • 00:10:58.650 --> 00:11:02.420
  • so that you may be able toescape.
  • 00:11:02.454 --> 00:11:05.623
  • God will lead us through butonly if we're listening.
  • 00:11:05.657 --> 00:11:09.160
  • Most of the inhabitants of theCity of Jerusalem did not escape
  • 00:11:09.194 --> 00:11:12.530
  • the siege when Titus put it inplace.
  • 00:11:12.564 --> 00:11:17.202
  • And then Jesus said, we have anappointment ahead, we're gonna
  • 00:11:17.235 --> 00:11:20.271
  • stand before the Son of man.
  • 00:11:20.305 --> 00:11:23.441
  • We want to be ready for it.
  • 00:11:23.475 --> 00:11:26.511
  • Now Matthew records that samepresentation from Jesus.
  • 00:11:26.544 --> 00:11:30.248
  • Two people who are recountingthe same experience will recount
  • 00:11:30.281 --> 00:11:33.384
  • it with slightly differenthighlights, we understand that.
  • 00:11:33.418 --> 00:11:36.421
  • If you describe church tonightyou'll describe it
  • 00:11:36.454 --> 00:11:38.490
  • in different ways.
  • 00:11:38.523 --> 00:11:40.291
  • But I want to read you a few ofJesus' words, because they speak
  • 00:11:40.325 --> 00:11:43.695
  • to our theme for this week.
  • 00:11:43.728 --> 00:11:46.431
  • At that time, again there's atiming word, he says, at that
  • 00:11:46.464 --> 00:11:49.134
  • time, at the time of my return,at the culmination of the age,
  • 00:11:49.167 --> 00:11:52.771
  • many will turn away fromthe faith and will betray
  • 00:11:52.804 --> 00:11:56.341
  • and hate each other.
  • 00:11:56.374 --> 00:11:57.809
  • And the word that's translated,turn away, there, is scandalos
  • 00:11:57.842 --> 00:12:00.712
  • in Greek.
  • 00:12:00.745 --> 00:12:02.914
  • They're going to stumble.
  • 00:12:02.947 --> 00:12:06.117
  • There'll be things that willcause people to stumble
  • 00:12:06.151 --> 00:12:08.553
  • in that season.
  • 00:12:08.586 --> 00:12:09.888
  • We see it in unprecedented waystoday.
  • 00:12:09.921 --> 00:12:12.323
  • And many false prophets willappear and deceive many people.
  • 00:12:12.357 --> 00:12:17.061
  • Jesus used the word many todescribe three separate things
  • 00:12:17.095 --> 00:12:20.365
  • there, did you catch it?
  • 00:12:20.398 --> 00:12:21.699
  • Many will turn away, many willstumble from the faith, and many
  • 00:12:21.733 --> 00:12:25.937
  • will betray and hate each other,many false prophets will appear,
  • 00:12:25.970 --> 00:12:29.641
  • and many people will bedeceived.
  • 00:12:29.674 --> 00:12:32.777
  • And because of the increase ofwickedness, the love of most
  • 00:12:32.811 --> 00:12:35.146
  • will grow cold.
  • 00:12:35.180 --> 00:12:36.481
  • But he who stands firm to theend will be saved.
  • 00:12:36.514 --> 00:12:39.217
  • And this gospel of the Kingdomwill be preached in the whole
  • 00:12:39.250 --> 00:12:41.619
  • world as a testimony to allnations.
  • 00:12:41.653 --> 00:12:45.256
  • And then the end will come.
  • 00:12:45.290 --> 00:12:47.692
  • Many will turn away, manybetrayals and hatred, many false
  • 00:12:47.725 --> 00:12:51.329
  • prophets, a great increase inwickedness, love will
  • 00:12:51.362 --> 00:12:55.233
  • be diminished.
  • 00:12:55.266 --> 00:12:56.601
  • And then we're given someinstructions, stand firm to the
  • 00:12:56.634 --> 00:12:59.037
  • end and you'll be saved.
  • 00:12:59.070 --> 00:13:01.206
  • A requirement for salvation isstanding firm to the end.
  • 00:13:01.239 --> 00:13:06.211
  • It's not just about how youbegan, we gotta finish
  • 00:13:06.244 --> 00:13:08.279
  • this thing.
  • 00:13:08.313 --> 00:13:09.647
  • One of the greatest challengesof 2020 is that we just want it
  • 00:13:09.681 --> 00:13:12.550
  • to be done.
  • 00:13:12.584 --> 00:13:15.420
  • We're tired of it now, but we'renot finished with it yet,
  • 00:13:15.453 --> 00:13:18.523
  • we've gotta see it through.
  • 00:13:18.556 --> 00:13:20.391
  • And then Jesus said, the gospelof the Kingdom will be preached
  • 00:13:20.425 --> 00:13:22.861
  • in the whole world.
  • 00:13:22.894 --> 00:13:24.662
  • And you may say, well, I don'thave connections to the
  • 00:13:24.696 --> 00:13:26.264
  • whole world.
  • 00:13:26.297 --> 00:13:27.632
  • You start sharing the gospel inthe world, you have connections
  • 00:13:27.665 --> 00:13:29.901
  • to, persistently, courageously,unrelentingly.
  • 00:13:29.934 --> 00:13:35.607
  • Don't let anybody that knows younot hear about Jesus.
  • 00:13:35.640 --> 00:13:40.011
  • Start to let Let's Pray momentsfill your days, that the people
  • 00:13:40.044 --> 00:13:43.648
  • who live near you that areinteracting with your children
  • 00:13:43.681 --> 00:13:46.451
  • on sports fields and school andother ways.
  • 00:13:46.484 --> 00:13:48.987
  • We've gotta take our faith outof the church building and out
  • 00:13:49.020 --> 00:13:52.090
  • of the church campus and intothe world we live in.
  • 00:13:52.123 --> 00:13:56.094
  • If you have a church face andyou have church friends and
  • 00:13:56.127 --> 00:13:59.397
  • you're different than you are inother places, you get on
  • 00:13:59.430 --> 00:14:02.033
  • your knees and stay there untilyou can make it consistent.
  • 00:14:02.066 --> 00:14:05.937
  • We've been wrong.
  • 00:14:05.970 --> 00:14:07.472
  • Allen Jackson: Hey, this isPastor Allen, and we have

  • a coherent fashion, I believeit'll be a strength to you.
  • 00:14:23.521 --> 00:14:27.558

  • the founding of our nation whenWilliam Bradford came with

  • the Separatists, the Puritans,until today, time and time again
  • 00:14:32.630 --> 00:14:36.801

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

  • that the liberties and freedomswe know are global.
  • 00:15:02.827 --> 00:15:05.596
  • And if the church isn't willingto stand up and be an advocate
  • 00:15:05.630 --> 00:15:07.732
  • for our faith and for our Lord,those values will be swept out
  • 00:15:07.765 --> 00:15:12.337
  • of our culture,out of our schools,

  • Pastor Allen Jackson: And thenJesus said, there's an end
  • 00:15:41.432 --> 00:15:42.767
  • coming to this present age.
  • 00:15:42.800 --> 00:15:45.970
  • Now in the same way, in Luke 19,Jesus previewed what he was
  • 00:15:46.004 --> 00:15:49.707
  • gonna say in Luke 21.
  • 00:15:49.741 --> 00:15:52.043
  • In Matthew 7 he previewed a bitwhat he was gonna say
  • 00:15:52.076 --> 00:15:54.812
  • in Matthew 24, I'll read youjust one verse.
  • 00:15:54.846 --> 00:15:57.949
  • He said, watch out for falseprophets.
  • 00:15:57.982 --> 00:16:00.318
  • They'll come to you in sheep'sclothing, but inwardly,
  • 00:16:00.351 --> 00:16:02.620
  • they are ferocious wolves.
  • 00:16:02.653 --> 00:16:04.489
  • By their fruits you'll recognizethem.
  • 00:16:04.522 --> 00:16:06.924
  • Do people pick grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
  • 00:16:06.958 --> 00:16:12.497
  • Jesus again said, watch outfor false prophets.
  • 00:16:12.530 --> 00:16:16.701
  • He said, there'll be a deceptivepresentation, they're going
  • 00:16:16.734 --> 00:16:19.871
  • to appear harmless, they'llpresent themselves in ways
  • 00:16:19.904 --> 00:16:23.207
  • that cause you no alarm,no anxiety whatsoever.
  • 00:16:23.241 --> 00:16:27.578
  • My father was a veterinarianwhen I lived at home, and we'd
  • 00:16:27.612 --> 00:16:30.715
  • make calls to visit people totake care of their animals,
  • 00:16:30.748 --> 00:16:34.419
  • typically horses.
  • 00:16:34.452 --> 00:16:36.654
  • But you'd always check for a dogbefore you got out of the car
  • 00:16:36.687 --> 00:16:39.190
  • when you made a call.
  • 00:16:39.223 --> 00:16:42.060
  • 'Cause people say, oh,our dog's peaceful.
  • 00:16:42.093 --> 00:16:43.561
  • Yeah, he's peaceful to them,but he chews on strangers.
  • 00:16:43.594 --> 00:16:48.399
  • But if I saw a flock of sheeparound the car, there was
  • 00:16:48.433 --> 00:16:51.903
  • no anxiety around that.
  • 00:16:51.936 --> 00:16:53.271
  • I've never been attackedby a sheep.
  • 00:16:53.304 --> 00:16:56.307
  • And he said that the falseprophets will present themselves
  • 00:16:56.340 --> 00:16:58.843
  • in ways that cause no alarm,but in truth, he said,
  • 00:16:58.876 --> 00:17:03.347
  • they're ferocious predators.
  • 00:17:03.381 --> 00:17:06.150
  • Ravenous wolves is intimidating.
  • 00:17:06.184 --> 00:17:09.921
  • And he said, the only indicatorof their true nature,
  • 00:17:09.954 --> 00:17:13.991
  • their character, is the fruitof their lives.
  • 00:17:14.025 --> 00:17:18.162
  • That brings with it really twoideas, the fruit of the Spirit
  • 00:17:18.196 --> 00:17:20.731
  • is about your character, but theindication of your character is
  • 00:17:20.765 --> 00:17:25.103
  • in your behavior.
  • 00:17:25.136 --> 00:17:26.904
  • Not in your story, not inthe words you use,
  • 00:17:26.938 --> 00:17:30.441
  • but in the evidenceof your life.
  • 00:17:30.475 --> 00:17:33.978
  • We're gonna have to be wiserconsumers.
  • 00:17:34.011 --> 00:17:38.816
  • I had a meeting with some of thefolks I work with the other day,
  • 00:17:38.850 --> 00:17:41.486
  • and I said I've learned a lessonin my years.
  • 00:17:41.519 --> 00:17:44.789
  • If somebody comes and wants todo business with the church
  • 00:17:44.822 --> 00:17:47.058
  • and they start with religiouslanguage, if they want to give
  • 00:17:47.091 --> 00:17:50.294
  • me their testimony and they wantto pray before we look at
  • 00:17:50.328 --> 00:17:52.930
  • the contract, I say, I alwayshave somebody really smart read
  • 00:17:52.964 --> 00:17:56.300
  • the fine print.
  • 00:17:56.334 --> 00:17:59.737
  • Because if you do businesswith integrity, you don't have
  • 00:17:59.770 --> 00:18:01.772
  • to start the meeting with,"O Brother."
  • 00:18:01.806 --> 00:18:09.280
  • Amen is the wordyou're searching for.
  • 00:18:09.313 --> 00:18:12.049
  • Let the character of your lifedefine your faith.
  • 00:18:12.083 --> 00:18:14.752
  • You don't have to announce it.
  • 00:18:14.785 --> 00:18:19.891
  • But Jesus warned us that, beforehe returns, the false prophets
  • 00:18:19.924 --> 00:18:24.128
  • will multiply.
  • 00:18:24.162 --> 00:18:26.864
  • So I'll give you one morepassage of Scripture from one
  • 00:18:26.898 --> 00:18:28.900
  • of Jesus' closest friends.
  • 00:18:28.933 --> 00:18:30.234
  • It's 2 Peter chapter 1,near the end of his life.
  • 00:18:30.268 --> 00:18:33.905
  • See, my assumption is that mostof us in the church really
  • 00:18:33.938 --> 00:18:36.207
  • aren't too interestedin the prophets.
  • 00:18:36.240 --> 00:18:38.109
  • If you're doing the Biblereading with us right now
  • 00:18:38.142 --> 00:18:40.011
  • you know we're in Isaiah.
  • 00:18:40.044 --> 00:18:42.280
  • And it's the hardest part of theBible reading to help people
  • 00:18:42.313 --> 00:18:44.482
  • through, because it just seemsthat we've given ourselves
  • 00:18:44.515 --> 00:18:49.520
  • license to not pay attentionto it.
  • 00:18:49.554 --> 00:18:52.356
  • So I'm grateful we get to readit in this season.
  • 00:18:52.390 --> 00:18:54.926
  • But listen to what Peter said.
  • 00:18:54.959 --> 00:18:56.294
  • He said, we have the word of theprophets made more certain.
  • 00:18:56.327 --> 00:18:59.530
  • What's it made more certain by?
  • 00:18:59.564 --> 00:19:00.865
  • By their experiences.
  • 00:19:00.898 --> 00:19:03.034
  • And you'll do well to payattention to it, as a light
  • 00:19:03.067 --> 00:19:05.403
  • shining in a dark place, untilthe day dawns and the morning
  • 00:19:05.436 --> 00:19:08.439
  • star rises in your heart.
  • 00:19:08.472 --> 00:19:10.942
  • Above all else, Pete says, aboveall else you must understand
  • 00:19:10.975 --> 00:19:15.112
  • that no prophecy of Scripturecame about by the prophet's
  • 00:19:15.146 --> 00:19:17.882
  • own interpretation.
  • 00:19:17.915 --> 00:19:19.917
  • For prophecy never had itsorigin in the will of man, but
  • 00:19:19.951 --> 00:19:22.520
  • men spoke from God as they werecarried along by the Spirit.
  • 00:19:22.553 --> 00:19:26.691
  • But there were also falseprophets among the people,
  • 00:19:26.724 --> 00:19:30.061
  • just as there will be falseteachers among you.
  • 00:19:30.094 --> 00:19:33.497
  • Peter's picking up whathe learned from Jesus.
  • 00:19:33.531 --> 00:19:36.968
  • He said, if you're gonna listento the Lord, you need to
  • 00:19:37.001 --> 00:19:39.537
  • understand there will be falsemessengers and false teachers.
  • 00:19:39.570 --> 00:19:45.309
  • And you need to know howto distinguish them.
  • 00:19:45.343 --> 00:19:49.480
  • I think it's a pretty safe betto say we have just not cared
  • 00:19:49.513 --> 00:19:52.950
  • about this.
  • 00:19:52.984 --> 00:19:54.619
  • We were like, I've joined theright group, and I can read
  • 00:19:54.652 --> 00:19:56.787
  • the right translation, and thatjust won't be my problem,
  • 00:19:56.821 --> 00:20:00.992
  • I'll stay in the middle.
  • 00:20:01.025 --> 00:20:03.127
  • I don't want to stayin the middle.
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:06.264
  • I grew up in Tennessee, the onlything that stays in the middle
  • 00:20:06.297 --> 00:20:08.332
  • of the road very long areopossums.
  • 00:20:08.366 --> 00:20:13.371
  • And now we have armadillos.
  • 00:20:13.404 --> 00:20:16.440
  • It's just a possum witha different tailor.
  • 00:20:16.474 --> 00:20:21.979
  • I don't want to stay inthe middle of the road
  • 00:20:22.013 --> 00:20:23.581
  • with my faith.
  • 00:20:23.614 --> 00:20:25.149
  • I want to find the edge,where God is moving.
  • 00:20:25.182 --> 00:20:27.151
  • I wanna build a ramp and hitthat ramp full speed.
  • 00:20:27.184 --> 00:20:31.722
  • I want to learn to trust him.
  • 00:20:31.756 --> 00:20:33.991
  • But for this session,let's leave it at this.
  • 00:20:34.025 --> 00:20:36.594
  • We've got to begin to listen.
  • 00:20:36.627 --> 00:20:39.230
  • We've got to stop recitingour resume and imagining
  • 00:20:39.263 --> 00:20:43.100
  • in self-righteous smugness thatwe have no need of listening.
  • 00:20:43.134 --> 00:20:47.772
  • We've got to stop imaginingwe're secure because
  • 00:20:47.805 --> 00:20:51.342
  • we know someone that behavesworse than we do.
  • 00:20:51.375 --> 00:20:55.246
  • We've got to lose theimagination that because
  • 00:20:55.279 --> 00:20:57.548
  • we gather in churches withfrequency that God wouldn't dare
  • 00:20:57.581 --> 00:21:01.285
  • to bring discipline to us.
  • 00:21:01.319 --> 00:21:04.255
  • He loves his children.
  • 00:21:04.288 --> 00:21:07.091
  • And he said, if he loves youhe will discipline you.
  • 00:21:07.124 --> 00:21:11.395
  • You're at the center of hisattention, not just so he can
  • 00:21:11.429 --> 00:21:15.199
  • pour his blessings out upon usbut that his character might be
  • 00:21:15.232 --> 00:21:18.736
  • formed in us.
  • 00:21:18.769 --> 00:21:20.905
  • We have been deceived.
  • 00:21:20.938 --> 00:21:23.574
  • We have sought God for hisblessings without coming with
  • 00:21:23.607 --> 00:21:26.844
  • sincerity of heart and saying,let your character be formed
  • 00:21:26.877 --> 00:21:30.348
  • in me.
  • 00:21:30.381 --> 00:21:31.749
  • But I believe 2020 marks a pivotfor the church in the earth.
  • 00:21:31.782 --> 00:21:36.554
  • I believe we'll come throughthis season listening more
  • 00:21:36.587 --> 00:21:39.323
  • carefully, with greater humilityand greater determination, to be
  • 00:21:39.357 --> 00:21:42.993
  • about the business of God.
  • 00:21:43.027 --> 00:21:46.430
  • That he's waking us upfrom our distractions.
  • 00:21:46.464 --> 00:21:49.600
  • I'm excited about what'sahead of us.
  • 00:21:49.633 --> 00:21:52.336
  • Folks, the end of the age iscoming.
  • 00:21:52.370 --> 00:21:55.039
  • The King is coming.
  • 00:21:55.072 --> 00:21:56.407
  • We're gonna see the greatestpresentation of the gospel
  • 00:21:56.440 --> 00:21:58.943
  • we have seen in our lifetime.
  • 00:21:58.976 --> 00:22:01.445
  • Harvest periods are short,they don't last for great long
  • 00:22:01.479 --> 00:22:05.316
  • periods of time, you want to bebusy with the opportunities
  • 00:22:05.349 --> 00:22:08.719
  • God has given you.
  • 00:22:08.753 --> 00:22:10.087
  • Why should he give us greateropportunities if we ignore the
  • 00:22:10.121 --> 00:22:11.989
  • ones that are before us now?
  • 00:22:12.022 --> 00:22:16.227
  • I'm happy to have churchoutside, inside, warm or cold,
  • 00:22:16.260 --> 00:22:20.297
  • a little damp, a little dry,if I can be with God's people,
  • 00:22:20.331 --> 00:22:24.135
  • I'm in!
  • 00:22:24.168 --> 00:22:26.303
  • We're learning to pray.

  • we're back praying every hour onthe hour through the day.

  • Folks, we've got to learnto pray.
  • 00:22:38.382 --> 00:22:39.750
  • Stop saying, I don't pray.
  • 00:22:39.784 --> 00:22:42.119
  • Next time you're tempted tosay it, kneel and say, God,
  • 00:22:42.153 --> 00:22:44.255
  • I'm sorry, I didn't usedto pray,
  • 00:22:44.288 --> 00:22:45.823
  • but now I want to learn to pray.
  • 00:22:45.856 --> 00:22:48.993
  • I want you to stand with metonight, I'm going to close
  • 00:22:49.026 --> 00:22:50.761
  • with an invitation.
  • 00:22:50.795 --> 00:22:52.229
  • I want to invite you to saya prayer with me.
  • 00:22:52.263 --> 00:22:55.099
  • It's a prayer that Jesus taughtus, it's a prayer that's as old
  • 00:22:55.132 --> 00:22:58.836
  • as the church.
  • 00:22:58.869 --> 00:23:01.372
  • And I want to pray with youbecause it's not irrelevant.
  • 00:23:01.405 --> 00:23:05.009
  • And don't allow its familiarityto you to cause you to imagine
  • 00:23:05.042 --> 00:23:09.180
  • that it's not powerful, becauseGod's Word on your lips
  • 00:23:09.213 --> 00:23:13.751
  • is powerful.
  • 00:23:13.784 --> 00:23:16.287
  • In fact, I wanna send it awaywith you to pray throughout
  • 00:23:16.320 --> 00:23:18.889
  • this week.
  • 00:23:18.923 --> 00:23:20.224
  • Every time the Lord brings itto mind, I want you to say
  • 00:23:20.257 --> 00:23:22.092
  • The Lord's Prayer.
  • 00:23:22.126 --> 00:23:24.495
  • If you say it 50 times a day,maybe you can get a co-worker to
  • 00:23:24.528 --> 00:23:26.831
  • pray it with you, maybe you'llpray it with your children
  • 00:23:26.864 --> 00:23:29.700
  • before they go to school, maybeyou can pray it with a neighbor,
  • 00:23:29.733 --> 00:23:33.370
  • I don't know what opportunitiesthe Lord will give you.
  • 00:23:33.404 --> 00:23:36.273
  • If the opportunity presentsitself, pray it in the produce
  • 00:23:36.307 --> 00:23:39.343
  • section at the grocery store.
  • 00:23:39.376 --> 00:23:44.315
  • But I want us to offer thatprayer to the Lord tonight as
  • 00:23:44.348 --> 00:23:47.518
  • an expression of our heart andour intent to submit to him
  • 00:23:47.551 --> 00:23:53.624
  • and to declare our trust in him.
  • 00:23:53.657 --> 00:23:54.992
  • It's a beautiful prayer.
  • 00:23:55.025 --> 00:23:57.328
  • Again, please don't let thefamiliarity cause you to be
  • 00:23:57.361 --> 00:24:00.130
  • robbed of its meaning.
  • 00:24:00.164 --> 00:24:02.333
  • Can we just say it together?
  • 00:24:02.366 --> 00:24:04.301
  • Our Father, who art in heaven,hallowed be your name.
  • 00:24:04.335 --> 00:24:09.807
  • Your kingdom come, your will bedone on earth as it is
  • 00:24:09.840 --> 00:24:14.612
  • in heaven.
  • 00:24:14.645 --> 00:24:15.980
  • Give us this day our daily breadand forgive us our trespasses,
  • 00:24:16.013 --> 00:24:20.985
  • as we forgive those who trespassagainst us.
  • 00:24:21.018 --> 00:24:24.755
  • Lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil.
