  • Pastor Allen Jackson: But I'velearned some things
  • 00:00:04.797 --> 00:00:06.131
  • by observation.
  • 00:00:06.165 --> 00:00:07.633
  • Once that process begins, thosebirth pains increase in both
  • 00:00:07.666 --> 00:00:11.503
  • intensity and frequency untilthere's a delivery.
  • 00:00:11.537 --> 00:00:17.543
  • And I believe, once we startdown this path, we will see the
  • 00:00:17.643 --> 00:00:20.746
  • shaking increase in itsintensity and its severity.
  • 00:00:20.779 --> 00:00:26.351
  • I believe we'll have a peacefulseason somewhere on the other
  • 00:00:26.385 --> 00:00:29.488
  • side of what we're walkingthrough, but I believe there'll
  • 00:00:29.521 --> 00:00:31.390
  • be additional shakings to comeuntil there's a delivery of a
  • 00:00:31.423 --> 00:00:35.227
  • new kingdom and a new king.
  • 00:00:35.260 --> 00:00:39.131
  • And between here and there,everything that can be shaken
  • 00:00:39.164 --> 00:00:42.668
  • will be shaken.
  • 00:00:42.701 --> 00:00:45.170
  • And the one thing left standingwill be the eternal kingdom of
  • 00:00:45.204 --> 00:00:48.107
  • our Lord.
  • 00:00:48.140 --> 00:00:50.309
  • Now that's an exciting premise!

  • 00:01:13.265 --> 00:01:18.237
  • Pastor Allen Jackson: It's goodto be with you again.
  • 00:01:18.270 --> 00:01:19.605
  • We're going to finishour lesson we started
  • 00:01:19.638 --> 00:01:21.340
  • on "A Whole Lot of Shaking."
  • 00:01:21.373 --> 00:01:23.575
  • God is shaking the earth,if you haven't noticed.
  • 00:01:23.609 --> 00:01:25.777
  • The good news is, God is shakingthe earth, and if he's shaking
  • 00:01:25.811 --> 00:01:28.514
  • it, he knows how to keep hispeople stable.
  • 00:01:28.547 --> 00:01:31.150
  • Now, we're gonna look at aspecific aspect of that today,
  • 00:01:31.183 --> 00:01:33.352
  • what the prophetshave to say to us.
  • 00:01:33.385 --> 00:01:35.387
  • You know, I spent a lot of timein the church world and with
  • 00:01:35.420 --> 00:01:37.589
  • Christians, and my typicalperspective is that we've taken
  • 00:01:37.623 --> 00:01:41.560
  • the prophets, those books at theend of the Old Testament, and we
  • 00:01:41.593 --> 00:01:44.463
  • treat 'em like they'reextracurricular reading, they're
  • 00:01:44.496 --> 00:01:47.132
  • not essential, but if youdon't anything else to do,
  • 00:01:47.166 --> 00:01:49.301
  • you might read 'em.
  • 00:01:49.334 --> 00:01:50.969
  • Well, Jesus said he expects usto recognize the season we're
  • 00:01:51.003 --> 00:01:54.373
  • living in based on theinformation we're given in
  • 00:01:54.406 --> 00:01:56.975
  • the prophets.
  • 00:01:57.009 --> 00:01:58.310
  • His expectation is we know whatthey had to say.
  • 00:01:58.343 --> 00:02:01.246
  • Now, if that's Jesus's attitude,I think I'd better bring
  • 00:02:01.280 --> 00:02:03.248
  • alignment to my life with that.
  • 00:02:03.282 --> 00:02:05.384
  • Get your Bible out, get somenotepaper, we're gonna look at
  • 00:02:05.417 --> 00:02:07.486
  • the greatest of the Hebrewprophets today and listen to
  • 00:02:07.519 --> 00:02:10.355
  • what he said about this seasonthat we're walking through
  • 00:02:10.389 --> 00:02:12.758
  • right now.
  • 00:02:12.791 --> 00:02:14.092
  • Enjoy the lesson.
  • 00:02:14.126 --> 00:02:16.295
  • Pastor Allen Jackson: So a partof this discussion has to do
  • 00:02:16.328 --> 00:02:17.963
  • with last things, the end of theage in the times.
  • 00:02:17.996 --> 00:02:22.634
  • And I'm here to confess, I don'thave a chart, I didn't even
  • 00:02:22.668 --> 00:02:27.105
  • bring a timeline.
  • 00:02:27.139 --> 00:02:29.508
  • For me, it's more helpful to tryto identify the components of
  • 00:02:29.541 --> 00:02:33.579
  • what is ahead, because the exactprecision of how those things
  • 00:02:33.612 --> 00:02:38.050
  • are going to be placed and howthey're gonna unfold,
  • 00:02:38.083 --> 00:02:40.485
  • there's room for someconsiderable debate.
  • 00:02:40.519 --> 00:02:44.022
  • And I want to suggest that wecan focus on what can be known,
  • 00:02:44.056 --> 00:02:47.893
  • and not spend undue time andeffort on things which
  • 00:02:47.926 --> 00:02:50.629
  • are unknowable.
  • 00:02:50.662 --> 00:02:53.398
  • And Jesus said very clearly thatthe times and the dates are not
  • 00:02:53.432 --> 00:02:56.368
  • always known.
  • 00:02:56.401 --> 00:03:00.138
  • I like that statement in thefirst chapter of Acts, it's not
  • 00:03:00.172 --> 00:03:03.542
  • for you to know the times or thedates the Father has set by his
  • 00:03:03.575 --> 00:03:06.111
  • own authority.
  • 00:03:06.144 --> 00:03:07.479
  • God has authority overwhat's unfolding in time.
  • 00:03:07.512 --> 00:03:12.150
  • Now, there's somefreedom in that.
  • 00:03:12.184 --> 00:03:14.920
  • God is not caught off guard.
  • 00:03:14.953 --> 00:03:18.490
  • Elections don't causeGod to panic.
  • 00:03:18.523 --> 00:03:22.227
  • A meeting of the UN SecurityCouncil does not cause God
  • 00:03:22.261 --> 00:03:25.697
  • to pace.
  • 00:03:25.731 --> 00:03:28.066
  • That's good to know, that Godhas authority over what's
  • 00:03:28.100 --> 00:03:33.138
  • unfolding in time.
  • 00:03:33.171 --> 00:03:34.873
  • The one who watches over usnever slumbers nor sleeps.
  • 00:03:34.906 --> 00:03:40.112
  • See, one of the challenges inseasons of discontinuity, of
  • 00:03:40.145 --> 00:03:43.649
  • realignment and shaking, is thefear that encroaches on
  • 00:03:43.682 --> 00:03:48.453
  • our lives.
  • 00:03:48.487 --> 00:03:49.821
  • It will paralyze us.
  • 00:03:49.855 --> 00:03:52.524
  • It discourages us.
  • 00:03:52.557 --> 00:03:54.926
  • This season is challengingbecause of the length of it.
  • 00:03:54.960 --> 00:03:58.930
  • I think we imagined it would bea two-week, or a four-week, or
  • 00:03:58.964 --> 00:04:01.500
  • maybe a six-week littleinterruption, and we'd be back
  • 00:04:01.533 --> 00:04:04.569
  • in the habits.
  • 00:04:04.603 --> 00:04:05.904
  • And that's not been our case,and I don't think we're at the
  • 00:04:05.937 --> 00:04:08.840
  • end of it just yet.
  • 00:04:08.874 --> 00:04:11.710
  • And that's unsettling, and it'sfrustrating, and you want to
  • 00:04:11.743 --> 00:04:15.380
  • wake up tomorrow, and it'll beback to a better place.
  • 00:04:15.414 --> 00:04:20.285
  • But God has authority over time.
  • 00:04:20.319 --> 00:04:24.589
  • Now what we are responsible foris to recognize the seasons in
  • 00:04:24.623 --> 00:04:27.826
  • which we live.
  • 00:04:27.859 --> 00:04:30.162
  • In Matthew 16, Jesus again, hesaid, when evening comes, you
  • 00:04:30.195 --> 00:04:33.098
  • say, it'll be fair weather, forthe sky is red.
  • 00:04:33.131 --> 00:04:35.233
  • And in the morning today it'llbe stormy, for the sky is red
  • 00:04:35.267 --> 00:04:37.769
  • and overcast.
  • 00:04:37.803 --> 00:04:39.471
  • You know how to interpretthe appearance of the sky,
  • 00:04:39.504 --> 00:04:41.273
  • but you can't interpretthe signs of the times.
  • 00:04:41.306 --> 00:04:44.810
  • Jesus said, you're better atpredicting the weather than you
  • 00:04:44.843 --> 00:04:47.512
  • are the spiritual circumstancesaround you.
  • 00:04:47.546 --> 00:04:50.449
  • Guilty.
  • 00:04:50.482 --> 00:04:52.651
  • I'm guilty.
  • 00:04:52.684 --> 00:04:54.553
  • They had to make a decision atabout three o'clock today about
  • 00:04:54.586 --> 00:04:56.555
  • the weather, and there was awhole pattern of thunderstorms
  • 00:04:56.588 --> 00:04:59.858
  • moving across the southeast, andthey were a bit of spot storms,
  • 00:04:59.891 --> 00:05:02.961
  • but it was highly probable thatwe could've had more thunder or
  • 00:05:02.994 --> 00:05:06.064
  • lightning this afternoon.
  • 00:05:06.098 --> 00:05:07.432
  • We've got enough experience inthis part of the world to know
  • 00:05:07.466 --> 00:05:09.101
  • that was a reality.
  • 00:05:09.134 --> 00:05:11.503
  • I'm more comfortable making aweather decision than I am a
  • 00:05:11.536 --> 00:05:13.905
  • decision about the season inGod's purposes we're living in,
  • 00:05:13.939 --> 00:05:16.842
  • and I bet you are too.
  • 00:05:16.875 --> 00:05:19.378
  • So rather than read that passageand think, well, how could they
  • 00:05:19.411 --> 00:05:21.747
  • be so hardhearted?
  • 00:05:21.780 --> 00:05:23.081
  • I think we have tounderstand there's a bit
  • 00:05:23.115 --> 00:05:24.416
  • of a deficit in us.
  • 00:05:24.449 --> 00:05:29.221
  • Because if Jesus said, we canknow the time and we can be
  • 00:05:29.254 --> 00:05:32.958
  • aware, that it's possibleto do that.
  • 00:05:32.991 --> 00:05:37.062
  • Similar passage, Luke 12, verse54, he said to the crowd, when
  • 00:05:37.095 --> 00:05:40.766
  • you see a cloud rising in thewest, immediately you say, it's
  • 00:05:40.799 --> 00:05:43.402
  • going to rain, and it does.
  • 00:05:43.435 --> 00:05:46.738
  • And when the south wind blows,you say it's gonna be hot,
  • 00:05:46.772 --> 00:05:50.108
  • and it is.
  • 00:05:50.142 --> 00:05:52.010
  • Hypocrites?
  • 00:05:52.043 --> 00:05:53.378
  • You know how to interpret theappearance of the earth and the
  • 00:05:53.412 --> 00:05:55.247
  • sky, how is it that you don'tknow how to interpret the
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:57.983
  • present time?
  • 00:05:58.016 --> 00:06:00.886
  • Please note, Jesus's expectationis that we know how to interpret
  • 00:06:00.919 --> 00:06:06.925
  • the present in light of theprophetic information of the
  • 00:06:07.192 --> 00:06:10.896
  • Scripture through a Biblicalperspective.
  • 00:06:10.929 --> 00:06:14.366
  • That is Jesus'sexpectation of us.
  • 00:06:14.399 --> 00:06:19.204
  • None of the crackpots amongstus, or the lunatic fringe, but
  • 00:06:19.237 --> 00:06:23.542
  • that if we're gonna flourish, ifwe're gonna make prudent
  • 00:06:23.575 --> 00:06:25.744
  • decisions in the context of ourfaith and the purposes of God,
  • 00:06:25.777 --> 00:06:30.048
  • we're gonna have to have someawareness of what God has said
  • 00:06:30.081 --> 00:06:33.218
  • to us Biblically.
  • 00:06:33.251 --> 00:06:34.586
  • We're gonna have to payattention to the prophets.
  • 00:06:34.619 --> 00:06:38.924
  • Luke 16, Jesus is teaching, it'sa parable, it's a story he's
  • 00:06:38.957 --> 00:06:44.296
  • telling to illustrate a point.
  • 00:06:44.329 --> 00:06:46.665
  • Some of you remember theparable, it says, a rich man was
  • 00:06:46.698 --> 00:06:48.934
  • dressed in purple and fine linenand he lived in luxury
  • 00:06:48.967 --> 00:06:51.503
  • every day.
  • 00:06:51.536 --> 00:06:52.871
  • He's a one-percenter.
  • 00:06:52.904 --> 00:06:56.174
  • At his gate was laid a beggarnamed Lazarus, and he was
  • 00:06:56.208 --> 00:06:58.977
  • covered with sores and he longedto eat what fell from the rich
  • 00:06:59.010 --> 00:07:01.546
  • man's table.
  • 00:07:01.580 --> 00:07:02.914
  • The dogs came and lickedhis sores.
  • 00:07:02.948 --> 00:07:06.718
  • The time came when the beggardied and the angels carried him
  • 00:07:06.751 --> 00:07:09.287
  • to Abraham's side, and the richman also died and was buried, in
  • 00:07:09.321 --> 00:07:14.359
  • hell, where he the rich man wasin torment, he looked up and saw
  • 00:07:14.392 --> 00:07:18.630
  • Abraham far away with Lazarusby his side.
  • 00:07:18.663 --> 00:07:22.200
  • And he called to him and said,Father Abraham, have pity on me
  • 00:07:22.234 --> 00:07:24.803
  • and send Lazarus to dip the tipof his finger in water and cool
  • 00:07:24.836 --> 00:07:27.606
  • my tongue, because I'm in agonyin this fire.
  • 00:07:27.639 --> 00:07:33.144
  • That's an unpleasantcircumstance, agreed?
  • 00:07:33.178 --> 00:07:39.184
  • But Abraham replied, son,remember that in your lifetime
  • 00:07:40.352 --> 00:07:43.522
  • you received good things, whileLazarus received bad things.
  • 00:07:43.555 --> 00:07:47.459
  • But now he's comforted andyou're in agony.
  • 00:07:47.492 --> 00:07:49.261
  • And besides all this, between usthere is a great chasm so that
  • 00:07:49.294 --> 00:07:53.431
  • you can't go from here,nor can anyone cross over
  • 00:07:53.465 --> 00:07:56.635
  • from there to us.
  • 00:07:56.668 --> 00:07:58.303
  • Well, I beg you, Father, sendLazarus to my father's house,
  • 00:07:58.336 --> 00:08:01.873
  • for I have brothers.
  • 00:08:01.907 --> 00:08:03.241
  • Let him warn them so that theywill not also come to this place
  • 00:08:03.275 --> 00:08:05.410
  • of torment.
  • 00:08:05.443 --> 00:08:07.746
  • And Abraham replied, they haveMoses and the prophets, let them
  • 00:08:07.779 --> 00:08:10.682
  • listen to them.
  • 00:08:10.715 --> 00:08:13.785
  • No, he said, if someone from thedead goes to them,
  • 00:08:13.818 --> 00:08:16.254
  • they'll repent.
  • 00:08:16.288 --> 00:08:18.557
  • And he said, if they don'tlisten to Moses and the
  • 00:08:18.590 --> 00:08:20.392
  • prophets, they won't beconvinced even if someone rises
  • 00:08:20.425 --> 00:08:23.929
  • from the dead.
  • 00:08:23.962 --> 00:08:26.865
  • What's Jesus's message?
  • 00:08:26.898 --> 00:08:28.633
  • What's his counsel?
  • 00:08:28.667 --> 00:08:30.602
  • He just gave us some veryimportant instructions.
  • 00:08:30.635 --> 00:08:33.805
  • He said, listen to Moses and theprophets.
  • 00:08:33.838 --> 00:08:38.043
  • Listen to the Scripture,especially to the prophets.
  • 00:08:38.076 --> 00:08:42.614
  • You know there were over 300 OldTestament prophecies fulfilled
  • 00:08:42.647 --> 00:08:45.850
  • in Jesus?
  • 00:08:45.884 --> 00:08:48.086
  • More than 300.
  • 00:08:48.119 --> 00:08:49.421
  • Not one or two, not a coupledozen, more than 300.
  • 00:08:49.454 --> 00:08:55.460
  • God needed a unique people to bethe vehicle for world
  • 00:08:56.895 --> 00:09:00.498
  • redemption, and he chose thedescendants of Abraham, Isaac,
  • 00:09:00.532 --> 00:09:03.435
  • and Jacob.
  • 00:09:03.468 --> 00:09:04.769
  • And he gave them hundreds ofprophetic insights, descriptors,
  • 00:09:04.803 --> 00:09:10.008
  • of how to recognize the Messiahwhen he came, yet many missed
  • 00:09:10.041 --> 00:09:13.845
  • Jesus's message.
  • 00:09:13.878 --> 00:09:15.180
  • Is that fair to say?
  • 00:09:15.213 --> 00:09:17.582
  • They were a very religiouspeople, that first century
  • 00:09:17.616 --> 00:09:22.087
  • audience, they had a temple, onethat had been remodeled by Herod
  • 00:09:22.120 --> 00:09:25.957
  • the Great, it was one of thewonders of the ancient world.
  • 00:09:25.991 --> 00:09:28.426
  • They celebrated all the rightholidays, they celebrated
  • 00:09:28.460 --> 00:09:31.162
  • Passover and Pentecostand Sukkot.
  • 00:09:31.196 --> 00:09:36.368
  • They maintained the dietaryrules, they ate kosher, they
  • 00:09:36.401 --> 00:09:39.504
  • wouldn't eat unclean things.
  • 00:09:39.537 --> 00:09:41.806
  • They understood they had aunique racial identity based on
  • 00:09:41.840 --> 00:09:44.809
  • their descent as the covenantpeople of God, yet in spite of
  • 00:09:44.843 --> 00:09:48.146
  • all those things, they werelargely unaware of the Scripture
  • 00:09:48.179 --> 00:09:51.583
  • and its relevance for theirmoment in time.
  • 00:09:51.616 --> 00:09:55.954
  • Now, there's a message for youand me.
  • 00:09:55.987 --> 00:09:57.455
  • On top of that, they wereexposed to Jesus's personal life
  • 00:09:57.489 --> 00:10:01.359
  • and ministry.
  • 00:10:01.393 --> 00:10:02.694
  • They knew of the miracles, ofthe healings, of the
  • 00:10:02.727 --> 00:10:04.763
  • supernatural signs, there wereangels, there were voices from
  • 00:10:04.796 --> 00:10:08.900
  • heaven, the sun was darkened.
  • 00:10:08.933 --> 00:10:12.170
  • But that generation still, forthe most part, was trapped in
  • 00:10:12.203 --> 00:10:15.840
  • their routine.
  • 00:10:15.874 --> 00:10:18.910
  • Now that is sobering to me.
  • 00:10:18.943 --> 00:10:24.949
  • There's an enormous differencefor the first century
  • 00:10:25.684 --> 00:10:28.153
  • counterparts that were receptiveto the message that
  • 00:10:28.186 --> 00:10:30.622
  • Jesus brought.
  • 00:10:30.655 --> 00:10:31.990
  • Think of the difference in thelife of Mary or Joseph or Peter
  • 00:10:32.023 --> 00:10:37.395
  • and the crew that were with him,or Bartimaeus, the blind man
  • 00:10:37.429 --> 00:10:40.999
  • that heard the Jesus storiesand made such a ruckus
  • 00:10:41.032 --> 00:10:44.269
  • he got Jesus's attentionand said, Lord.
  • 00:10:44.302 --> 00:10:46.304
  • I want to see.
  • 00:10:46.337 --> 00:10:47.639
  • Or the man who was on the palletand they let him down from the
  • 00:10:47.672 --> 00:10:49.974
  • roof and he was restored.
  • 00:10:50.008 --> 00:10:51.810
  • Person after person after personthat chose to believe, and their
  • 00:10:51.843 --> 00:10:54.879
  • life was transformed.
  • 00:10:54.913 --> 00:10:59.551
  • Or the large groups of otherpeople who chose not to believe.
  • 00:10:59.584 --> 00:11:04.823
  • They ignored what was given tothem.
  • 00:11:04.856 --> 00:11:08.660
  • You know, the reality is thatmost of our belief emerges at
  • 00:11:08.693 --> 00:11:12.931
  • our point of need.
  • 00:11:12.964 --> 00:11:15.700
  • I don't find very often that Itake a step forward in faith or
  • 00:11:15.734 --> 00:11:19.471
  • in believing in the Lord in justa theoretical construct.
  • 00:11:19.504 --> 00:11:23.808
  • Belief in my life, and in mylife experienced, emerges from a
  • 00:11:23.842 --> 00:11:28.113
  • point of need.
  • 00:11:28.146 --> 00:11:29.914
  • Remember the father that broughthis son to Jesus, the son had
  • 00:11:29.948 --> 00:11:32.250
  • seizure-like activities, and hesaid to Jesus, if you can
  • 00:11:32.283 --> 00:11:35.420
  • do anything.
  • 00:11:35.453 --> 00:11:36.755
  • And Jesus said, if I can?
  • 00:11:36.788 --> 00:11:39.157
  • He said, if you can believe allthings are possible, remember
  • 00:11:39.190 --> 00:11:41.159
  • what the father said?
  • 00:11:41.192 --> 00:11:42.494
  • I believe!
  • 00:11:42.527 --> 00:11:44.529
  • An emotional response to Jesus,but his brain kicked in and he
  • 00:11:44.562 --> 00:11:47.432
  • said, Lord, help my unbelief.
  • 00:11:47.465 --> 00:11:51.002
  • He had a point of need thatdrove him beyond all the
  • 00:11:51.035 --> 00:11:53.571
  • barriers, beyond all thecriticism, beyond what would the
  • 00:11:53.605 --> 00:11:56.374
  • neighbors say, what will thepeople think, what will the
  • 00:11:56.407 --> 00:11:58.409
  • people in my synagogue think.
  • 00:11:58.443 --> 00:12:00.011
  • My son needs help, and I franklydon't care what they think.
  • 00:12:00.044 --> 00:12:06.050
  • Think of Mary Magdalene,tormented by demonic activity,
  • 00:12:07.185 --> 00:12:11.589
  • and Jesus set her free.
  • 00:12:11.623 --> 00:12:13.391
  • And she said, I'm going to stayas close to this message and
  • 00:12:13.424 --> 00:12:16.060
  • messenger as I can.
  • 00:12:16.094 --> 00:12:19.831
  • The Gadarene Demoniac, a manthat was so tormented by unclean
  • 00:12:19.864 --> 00:12:23.568
  • spirits that he could not livein polite society.
  • 00:12:23.601 --> 00:12:28.373
  • He lived alone in a cemetery.
  • 00:12:28.406 --> 00:12:31.643
  • And he encountered Jesus and hewas completely delivered.
  • 00:12:31.676 --> 00:12:34.245
  • He begged to go with Jesus.
  • 00:12:34.279 --> 00:12:38.049
  • And Jesus said, no,you need to go home.
  • 00:12:38.082 --> 00:12:39.851
  • You see, you and I most likelywill believe at the point where
  • 00:12:39.884 --> 00:12:45.223
  • we have a need.
  • 00:12:45.256 --> 00:12:46.591
  • So, if in this season ofshaking, it has exposed points
  • 00:12:46.624 --> 00:12:49.894
  • of fear, uncertainty, or idols,things that you put your faith
  • 00:12:49.928 --> 00:12:53.731
  • or trust in ahead of where youput your faith or trust in
  • 00:12:53.765 --> 00:12:56.601
  • the Lord.
  • 00:12:56.634 --> 00:12:57.936
  • Rather than to think of it as anawful season, if your need has
  • 00:12:57.969 --> 00:13:00.572
  • been exposed, if your concernshave been exposed, there's an
  • 00:13:00.605 --> 00:13:05.009
  • opportunity to put our belief inthe Lord in a way beyond
  • 00:13:05.043 --> 00:13:07.745
  • anything we've done before.
  • 00:13:07.779 --> 00:13:09.781
  • God is preparing us,strengthening us.
  • 00:13:09.814 --> 00:13:14.619
  • We have a choice.
  • 00:13:14.652 --> 00:13:15.987
  • We can turn to God for ourresolution, or we can
  • 00:13:16.020 --> 00:13:18.489
  • turn elsewhere.

  • Pastor Allen Jackson: I wantto make a suggestion.
  • 00:14:08.373 --> 00:14:10.441
  • Cultivate the habit of trustin your Bible.
  • 00:14:10.475 --> 00:14:16.481
  • You may not understandeverything you read.
  • 00:14:16.581 --> 00:14:18.783
  • In fact, I would say, with somecertainty, you're not going
  • 00:14:18.816 --> 00:14:22.020
  • to understand.
  • 00:14:22.053 --> 00:14:23.454
  • How did God create the worldwith his Word?
  • 00:14:23.488 --> 00:14:25.523
  • I don't know.
  • 00:14:25.556 --> 00:14:28.393
  • But I believe it.
  • 00:14:28.426 --> 00:14:30.328
  • I believe God is the creator ofthe heaven and the earth.
  • 00:14:30.361 --> 00:14:34.299
  • Practice, cultivate the habit oftrusting your Bible and adopting
  • 00:14:34.332 --> 00:14:38.803
  • your behavior as if it weregiving you the truth.
  • 00:14:38.836 --> 00:14:44.342
  • Lord knows we've followed enoughinstructions in the last few
  • 00:14:44.375 --> 00:14:46.711
  • months that have beencontradictory.
  • 00:14:46.744 --> 00:14:52.083
  • Wasn't that long ago that theexperts stood in front of us and
  • 00:14:52.116 --> 00:14:54.385
  • said, there's absolutely novalue to wearing a mask, you
  • 00:14:54.419 --> 00:14:56.754
  • don't need to wear a mask.
  • 00:14:56.788 --> 00:14:59.490
  • And the same crew of people havebeen standing in front of us in
  • 00:14:59.524 --> 00:15:01.626
  • recent weeks by saying, one ofthe best things you can do is
  • 00:15:01.659 --> 00:15:04.162
  • wear a mask.
  • 00:15:04.195 --> 00:15:08.032
  • And they offered no explanationfor their change of positions,
  • 00:15:08.066 --> 00:15:13.137
  • they just changed their minds.
  • 00:15:13.171 --> 00:15:14.572
  • Now, I'm not arguing with eitherposition, we're doing our best
  • 00:15:14.605 --> 00:15:18.009
  • to maintain our health and helpone another.
  • 00:15:18.042 --> 00:15:22.513
  • But why is it we bring such askepticism to the things of God?
  • 00:15:22.547 --> 00:15:25.750
  • The people of God.
  • 00:15:25.783 --> 00:15:27.085
  • Forget the peopleoutside the church,
  • 00:15:27.118 --> 00:15:28.386
  • this is a message for us.
  • 00:15:28.419 --> 00:15:30.421
  • To listen to Mosesand the prophets.
  • 00:15:34.192 --> 00:15:38.396
  • 2 Peter, chapter 1 in verse 19,it says, we have the word of the
  • 00:15:38.429 --> 00:15:42.233
  • prophets made more certain,and you'll do well
  • 00:15:42.266 --> 00:15:44.669
  • to pay attention to it.
  • 00:15:44.702 --> 00:15:47.071
  • You do well to pay attention towhat the prophets have to say.
  • 00:15:47.105 --> 00:15:51.109
  • See, if we're gonna be preparedfor the shaking that's coming,
  • 00:15:51.142 --> 00:15:53.845
  • we're gonna have to know whatGod has said to us.
  • 00:15:53.878 --> 00:15:58.149
  • We're gonna have to have morethan a casual acquaintance
  • 00:15:58.182 --> 00:16:00.084
  • with him.
  • 00:16:00.118 --> 00:16:01.586
  • We're gonna have to lean,it's gonna take some effort,
  • 00:16:01.619 --> 00:16:03.354
  • some thought.
  • 00:16:03.388 --> 00:16:07.191
  • Oh, can't you just give mea summary?
  • 00:16:07.225 --> 00:16:13.231
  • Well, there's some seasonalchanges.
  • 00:16:15.066 --> 00:16:18.036
  • I'll give you a big picture andthen I'm gonna hush.
  • 00:16:18.069 --> 00:16:23.941
  • Matthew 24 is Jesus's mostlengthy prophetic presentation
  • 00:16:23.975 --> 00:16:29.981
  • in a single presentation.
  • 00:16:30.481 --> 00:16:34.752
  • And of all the Hebrew prophets,Jesus is the greatest.
  • 00:16:34.786 --> 00:16:38.589
  • And there's a question, twoquestions, put to Jesus in
  • 00:16:38.623 --> 00:16:40.892
  • Matthew 24 in verse 3. He'ssitting on the Mount of Olives,
  • 00:16:40.925 --> 00:16:43.494
  • and the disciples came to himprivately and they said, tell
  • 00:16:43.528 --> 00:16:47.331
  • us, what will be the sign ofyour coming and the end of
  • 00:16:47.365 --> 00:16:50.301
  • the age?
  • 00:16:50.334 --> 00:16:51.869
  • Two questions.
  • 00:16:51.903 --> 00:16:53.204
  • What's the sign of your return,and the end of the age?
  • 00:16:53.237 --> 00:16:55.773
  • And Jesus answered, and thenhe gives them his rather
  • 00:16:55.807 --> 00:16:57.608
  • lengthy list.
  • 00:16:57.642 --> 00:16:59.043
  • He said, watch out thatno one deceives you.
  • 00:16:59.077 --> 00:17:00.778
  • One of the primarycharacteristics, as we get to
  • 00:17:00.812 --> 00:17:03.047
  • the conclusion of the age, is anincrease in deception.
  • 00:17:03.081 --> 00:17:07.385
  • Don't be frightened by it, it'sgonna grow worse and worse.
  • 00:17:07.418 --> 00:17:10.955
  • Deception means you believesomething to be true
  • 00:17:10.988 --> 00:17:13.357
  • that's false.
  • 00:17:13.391 --> 00:17:14.692
  • How many of you think it'sharder to know what's
  • 00:17:14.725 --> 00:17:16.060
  • true today?
  • 00:17:16.094 --> 00:17:17.962
  • It's hard to know what to trust,it's hard to know what to
  • 00:17:17.995 --> 00:17:19.931
  • believe, they give you acontradictory message on a daily
  • 00:17:19.964 --> 00:17:22.967
  • basis, multiple times in a day,and it's disorienting.
  • 00:17:23.000 --> 00:17:27.972
  • So we'll need a God perspective,because that'll be a stabilizing
  • 00:17:28.005 --> 00:17:31.042
  • component for us.
  • 00:17:31.075 --> 00:17:32.410
  • And that deception is not goingto diminish, it's gonna
  • 00:17:32.443 --> 00:17:34.512
  • increase, because Jesus warns usmultiple times about deception.
  • 00:17:34.545 --> 00:17:39.417
  • He said, many will come even inmy name, claiming I'm the
  • 00:17:39.450 --> 00:17:41.752
  • Christ, and will deceive many.
  • 00:17:41.786 --> 00:17:43.254
  • A lot of people are gonnasuccumb to the deception.
  • 00:17:43.287 --> 00:17:46.557
  • And you'll hear of wars andrumors of wars, but see to it
  • 00:17:46.591 --> 00:17:48.893
  • that you're not alarmed.
  • 00:17:48.926 --> 00:17:51.229
  • Such things must happen.
  • 00:17:51.262 --> 00:17:53.297
  • But the end is still to come.
  • 00:17:53.331 --> 00:17:55.500
  • Nation will rise against nation,and kingdom against kingdom.
  • 00:17:55.533 --> 00:17:58.336
  • The word translated nation isethnos, from which we get the
  • 00:17:58.369 --> 00:18:01.105
  • word ethnic.
  • 00:18:01.139 --> 00:18:02.440
  • Not nation states in conflict,but ethnic groups in conflict.
  • 00:18:02.473 --> 00:18:07.545
  • You have any sense that ethnicconflict might be escalating in
  • 00:18:07.578 --> 00:18:10.081
  • the earth?
  • 00:18:10.114 --> 00:18:12.283
  • Perhaps.
  • 00:18:12.316 --> 00:18:13.618
  • There'll be famines andearthquakes and all of these are
  • 00:18:13.651 --> 00:18:15.887
  • the beginning of birth pains.
  • 00:18:15.920 --> 00:18:18.189
  • It's an interesting description.
  • 00:18:18.222 --> 00:18:20.291
  • When you see these thingshappening, that's just the
  • 00:18:20.324 --> 00:18:21.792
  • beginning of birth pains.
  • 00:18:21.826 --> 00:18:23.895
  • My dad was a vet, I grew uparound critters being born,
  • 00:18:23.928 --> 00:18:29.700
  • foals and calves, and kittensand puppies.
  • 00:18:29.734 --> 00:18:32.003
  • And some stranger things fromtime to time.
  • 00:18:32.036 --> 00:18:35.206
  • So on lots of occasions, we keptwatch to try to be of any
  • 00:18:35.239 --> 00:18:40.778
  • assistance possible at the pointof birth.
  • 00:18:40.811 --> 00:18:42.613
  • And I've never given birth,I confess, but I've learned
  • 00:18:42.647 --> 00:18:48.252
  • some things by observation.
  • 00:18:48.286 --> 00:18:50.521
  • Once that process begins, thosebirth pains increase in both
  • 00:18:50.555 --> 00:18:54.392
  • intensity and frequency, untilthere's a delivery.
  • 00:18:54.425 --> 00:19:00.431
  • And I believe, once we startdown this path, we will see the
  • 00:19:00.531 --> 00:19:03.634
  • shaking increase in itsintensity and its severity.
  • 00:19:03.668 --> 00:19:09.240
  • I believe we'll have a peacefulseason somewhere on the other
  • 00:19:09.273 --> 00:19:12.376
  • side of what we're walkingthrough, but I believe there
  • 00:19:12.410 --> 00:19:14.245
  • will be additional shakings tocome until there's a delivery of
  • 00:19:14.278 --> 00:19:18.049
  • a new kingdom and a new king.
  • 00:19:18.082 --> 00:19:22.019
  • And between here and there,everything that can be shaken
  • 00:19:22.053 --> 00:19:25.489
  • will be shaken.
  • 00:19:25.523 --> 00:19:28.059
  • And the one thing left standingwill be the eternal kingdom of
  • 00:19:28.092 --> 00:19:31.028
  • our Lord.
  • 00:19:31.062 --> 00:19:33.197
  • Now that's an exciting premise!
  • 00:19:33.231 --> 00:19:37.001
  • But there's a change that willhave to come to our hearts and
  • 00:19:37.034 --> 00:19:39.537
  • to our lives, to the degree towhich we have stood with the
  • 00:19:39.570 --> 00:19:42.607
  • same imagination of security andfoundation and opportunity that
  • 00:19:42.640 --> 00:19:46.911
  • people outside the kingdom did.
  • 00:19:46.944 --> 00:19:48.713
  • Those things we've trusted inare gonna fall away from us.
  • 00:19:48.746 --> 00:19:52.583
  • And we'll either be filled withanguish, and fear, and anxiety,
  • 00:19:52.617 --> 00:19:55.886
  • and concern, or we'll beincreasingly reverent and
  • 00:19:55.920 --> 00:19:59.624
  • grateful for the kingdom that'sbeen revealed to us.
  • 00:19:59.657 --> 00:20:05.663
  • Now, things are happening ata pace, they're accelerating
  • 00:20:05.763 --> 00:20:10.201
  • in ways that we've neverimagined possible.
  • 00:20:10.234 --> 00:20:14.438
  • Churches are padlocked.
  • 00:20:14.472 --> 00:20:17.975
  • Gathering of evangelicals in LasVegas, a few days ago, they were
  • 00:20:18.009 --> 00:20:23.314
  • allowed to meet in hotels, sothey met in a hotel.
  • 00:20:23.347 --> 00:20:25.316
  • They were given an order to saythat the hotel had said, don't
  • 00:20:25.349 --> 00:20:28.386
  • tolerate that meeting, and theydidn't cancel it.
  • 00:20:28.419 --> 00:20:32.923
  • So when the meeting was over,the hotel lost their license,
  • 00:20:32.957 --> 00:20:35.760
  • their liquor license,their hotel license.
  • 00:20:35.793 --> 00:20:39.697
  • We haven't watchedthese things before.
  • 00:20:39.730 --> 00:20:43.200
  • And if you think they're distantthings in some other part of the
  • 00:20:43.234 --> 00:20:45.569
  • nation and they're not gonnaimpact our lives, I don't think
  • 00:20:45.603 --> 00:20:48.572
  • we're paying attention.
  • 00:20:48.606 --> 00:20:52.510
  • Now, I don't know the timelineon that, I'm telling you,
  • 00:20:52.543 --> 00:20:54.478
  • it's a new season.
  • 00:20:54.512 --> 00:20:57.515
  • And it's time for us to begin tolook at what Jesus said with
  • 00:20:57.548 --> 00:21:00.418
  • some new eyes.
  • 00:21:00.451 --> 00:21:01.786
  • The beginning of birth pains,something's coming, and it's
  • 00:21:01.819 --> 00:21:03.821
  • something exciting.
  • 00:21:03.854 --> 00:21:06.390
  • I have visited the hospital fordozens and dozens and dozens of
  • 00:21:06.424 --> 00:21:10.061
  • people when there are newbirths, and I've been around
  • 00:21:10.094 --> 00:21:13.964
  • church when mothers bring intheir new babies, and I've
  • 00:21:13.998 --> 00:21:16.634
  • watched the expressions of themore mature moms, the moms whose
  • 00:21:16.667 --> 00:21:19.337
  • children are grown.
  • 00:21:19.370 --> 00:21:20.705
  • I've never seen the mom who hasgrown children look at a new mom
  • 00:21:20.738 --> 00:21:24.642
  • and go, oh, that wasawful, wasn't it?
  • 00:21:24.675 --> 00:21:30.681
  • I've never one time seem that.
  • 00:21:33.217 --> 00:21:35.853
  • But I've seen hundredsof women get emotional.
  • 00:21:35.886 --> 00:21:39.357
  • May I hold that child?
  • 00:21:39.390 --> 00:21:42.293
  • How wonderful!
  • 00:21:42.326 --> 00:21:43.627
  • Enjoy every moment, it's gonnapass so quickly!
  • 00:21:43.661 --> 00:21:49.266
  • There's a joy at what's arrivedthat seems to negate entirely
  • 00:21:49.300 --> 00:21:54.071
  • the discomfort and the pain andthe fear, giving birth is a
  • 00:21:54.105 --> 00:21:58.776
  • very, very vulnerable time.
  • 00:21:58.809 --> 00:22:02.947
  • You walk through the valley ofthe shadow of death in order to
  • 00:22:02.980 --> 00:22:06.016
  • bring that life forth.
  • 00:22:06.050 --> 00:22:09.420
  • And that's forgotten in the joyof the arrival.
  • 00:22:09.453 --> 00:22:13.891
  • So when we are counseled tocultivate reverence and
  • 00:22:13.924 --> 00:22:19.263
  • gratitude, God has counted usworthy to be present in a season
  • 00:22:19.296 --> 00:22:24.402
  • where his purposes are givingbirth to something new.
  • 00:22:24.435 --> 00:22:30.441
  • In the same way he brought a newlife out of the brick pits of
  • 00:22:31.308 --> 00:22:34.345
  • Egypt, and the rebirth of atemple in Jerusalem, his
  • 00:22:34.378 --> 00:22:38.549
  • purposes will come forth in theearth in a new way at the
  • 00:22:38.582 --> 00:22:41.485
  • conclusion of this age.
  • 00:22:41.519 --> 00:22:43.921
  • We're not forfeiting something,we're gaining something.
  • 00:22:43.954 --> 00:22:49.293
  • Amen!
  • 00:22:49.326 --> 00:22:51.495
  • So what's our assignment?
  • 00:22:51.529 --> 00:22:55.966
  • To not hold on to anythingthat we shouldn't.
  • 00:22:56.000 --> 00:22:58.836
  • To cooperate withthe spirit of God.
  • 00:22:58.869 --> 00:23:02.006
  • To acknowledge thatwe've been distracted.
  • 00:23:02.039 --> 00:23:05.709
  • That we were perhapsa bit complacent.
  • 00:23:05.743 --> 00:23:08.979
  • That we were overfedand overconfident.
  • 00:23:09.013 --> 00:23:13.451
  • And overcommitted to ourconvenience and our comfort.
  • 00:23:13.484 --> 00:23:17.521
  • And we're learning to walk innew ways, to be more flexible,
  • 00:23:17.555 --> 00:23:20.057
  • to change our habits, to respondmore quickly.
  • 00:23:20.090 --> 00:23:25.329
  • Are we willing to do that?
  • 00:23:25.362 --> 00:23:28.165
  • I believe we are.
  • 00:23:28.199 --> 00:23:30.367
  • But it's not easy, 'cause in themidst of that, just as when
  • 00:23:30.401 --> 00:23:33.370
  • Jesus was here, it calls for adecision, it calls for a change.
  • 00:23:33.404 --> 00:23:36.774
