  • - female announcer: Today
  • 00:00:16.140 --> 00:00:17.000
  • - Joseph Prince: What God is,
  • 00:00:19.010 --> 00:00:19.210
  • is love.
  • 00:00:19.210 --> 00:00:21.120
  • Who God is, is God.
  • 00:00:21.120 --> 00:00:24.090
  • And because he is God,
  • 00:00:24.090 --> 00:00:25.190
  • he has to judge.
  • 00:00:25.190 --> 00:00:26.260
  • But I want to tell you
  • 00:00:26.260 --> 00:00:27.130
  • one thing,
  • 00:00:27.130 --> 00:00:28.040
  • God's nature is not to judge.
  • 00:00:28.040 --> 00:00:31.020
  • In Micah 6:8, God says,
  • 00:00:31.020 --> 00:00:33.110
  • "He has shown you,
  • 00:00:33.110 --> 00:00:33.290
  • O man, what is good;
  • 00:00:33.290 --> 00:00:35.240
  • And what the Lord
  • 00:00:35.240 --> 00:00:36.130
  • requires of you to do justice."
  • 00:00:36.160 --> 00:00:39.160
  • Say, "To do justice."
  • 00:00:39.160 --> 00:00:41.160
  • "To love mercy."
  • 00:00:41.160 --> 00:00:42.250
  • Say, "Love mercy."
  • 00:00:42.250 --> 00:00:44.110
  • - announcer: A victorious life
  • 00:00:47.080 --> 00:00:48.090

  • 00:01:50.130 --> 00:01:51.030
  • for God's Word?
  • 00:01:51.030 --> 00:01:51.230
  • Let's dive right into it.
  • 00:01:51.230 --> 00:01:52.130
  • Last week,
  • 00:01:52.130 --> 00:01:53.000
  • we started with Genesis 18,
  • 00:01:53.000 --> 00:01:54.220
  • and how the Lord, such a homely
  • 00:01:55.070 --> 00:01:58.070
  • picture in Genesis 18,
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:02:00.280
  • that God would come
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:02.080
  • to a man's home, amen,
  • 00:02:02.080 --> 00:02:04.170
  • share the secrets of his heart,
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:07.110
  • eat with a man, amen,
  • 00:02:07.110 --> 00:02:09.160
  • and God brought
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:10.070
  • two angels with him.
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:11.070
  • We know it's the preincarnate
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:12.040
  • appearance of Christ,
  • 00:02:12.040 --> 00:02:13.140
  • but what a homely, beautiful,
  • 00:02:13.250 --> 00:02:16.250
  • comfortable, restful picture,
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:21.180
  • God at home with his people.
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:24.200
  • Isn't that beautiful?
  • 00:02:24.200 --> 00:02:25.250
  • And we saw
  • 00:02:25.250 --> 00:02:26.110
  • that Abraham instantly knew
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:29.010
  • his divine visitor.
  • 00:02:29.010 --> 00:02:31.080
  • He did not, like Joshua,
  • 00:02:31.080 --> 00:02:33.010
  • when he saw the man
  • 00:02:33.010 --> 00:02:33.270
  • with the drawn sword,
  • 00:02:33.270 --> 00:02:35.010
  • he had to inquire who he was.
  • 00:02:35.010 --> 00:02:37.210
  • "Are you on our side
  • 00:02:37.210 --> 00:02:39.090
  • or on you
  • 00:02:39.090 --> 00:02:39.280
  • on the other side's side?"
  • 00:02:39.280 --> 00:02:41.200
  • You know, he had to inquire.
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:42.220
  • Gideon had to inquire.
  • 00:02:42.220 --> 00:02:45.080
  • At first, he didn't know
  • 00:02:45.080 --> 00:02:46.070
  • the divine visitor.
  • 00:02:46.070 --> 00:02:47.050
  • Many of them,
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:48.000
  • they had to inquire,
  • 00:02:48.000 --> 00:02:48.190
  • but Abraham,
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:50.030
  • may we all be like him.
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:51.260
  • Instantly, he knew
  • 00:02:51.260 --> 00:02:53.260
  • who that divine visitor was.
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:56.130
  • The Bible says
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:57.020
  • he was nearly 100 years old,
  • 00:02:57.020 --> 00:02:59.020
  • but we saw last week he ran.
  • 00:02:59.020 --> 00:03:01.210
  • A hundred-year-old man running.
  • 00:03:01.210 --> 00:03:03.180
  • Whenever your eye
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:04.050
  • is on the Lord, you run, amen.
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:08.020
  • Your body will not know
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:09.060
  • it's old.
  • 00:03:09.060 --> 00:03:10.250
  • Your body will only know
  • 00:03:10.250 --> 00:03:12.180
  • its maker and its redeemer.
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:15.290
  • Amen?
  • 00:03:15.290 --> 00:03:16.260
  • When there was a storm and
  • 00:03:16.260 --> 00:03:18.130
  • Jesus was walking on the storm,
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:19.240
  • remember, to the boat
  • 00:03:19.240 --> 00:03:21.030
  • where the disciples were?
  • 00:03:21.030 --> 00:03:22.160
  • In jeopardy, in fear,
  • 00:03:22.160 --> 00:03:24.250
  • in great consternation,
  • 00:03:24.250 --> 00:03:27.100
  • Peter, looking at Jesus, said,
  • 00:03:27.100 --> 00:03:29.260
  • "Bid me come," and Jesus knew
  • 00:03:29.260 --> 00:03:31.140
  • that Peter's eyes was on him.
  • 00:03:31.140 --> 00:03:33.090
  • Jesus says, "Come,"
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:34.200
  • and Peter did the supernatural,
  • 00:03:34.200 --> 00:03:36.250
  • as long as his eye is on Jesus.
  • 00:03:36.250 --> 00:03:38.100
  • Of course, he took his eyes off
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:39.070
  • for awhile and he started
  • 00:03:39.070 --> 00:03:40.060
  • becoming natural.
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:42.170
  • So, the greatest superhero,
  • 00:03:42.170 --> 00:03:43.150
  • I told my son the other day,
  • 00:03:43.150 --> 00:03:45.200
  • the greatest superhero
  • 00:03:45.200 --> 00:03:46.210
  • in the whole universe
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:48.080
  • is the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:03:48.080 --> 00:03:50.230
  • Amen?
  • 00:03:50.230 --> 00:03:51.230
  • It's the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:03:51.230 --> 00:03:53.060
  • He's the greatest superhero.
  • 00:03:53.060 --> 00:03:54.140
  • The one who died.
  • 00:03:54.140 --> 00:03:55.270
  • I mean, it's greater
  • 00:03:55.270 --> 00:03:56.140
  • than any romantic drama,
  • 00:03:56.140 --> 00:03:58.080
  • the one who gave his life
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:03:59.220
  • for the woman that he loved,
  • 00:03:59.220 --> 00:04:01.160
  • you and I,
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:03.110
  • and now we are his bride,
  • 00:04:03.110 --> 00:04:05.060
  • waiting for the wedding day.
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:07.020
  • Isn't it romantic?
  • 00:04:07.020 --> 00:04:08.260
  • I mean, don't make it
  • 00:04:08.260 --> 00:04:09.240
  • dry orthodoxy and theology.
  • 00:04:09.240 --> 00:04:12.130
  • The whole thing is beautiful.
  • 00:04:12.130 --> 00:04:13.170
  • God so loved the world
  • 00:04:13.170 --> 00:04:14.150
  • that he gave his only Son.
  • 00:04:14.150 --> 00:04:16.180
  • His Son didn't have to come
  • 00:04:16.180 --> 00:04:17.100
  • and gave his life for us.
  • 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:19.030
  • So, we see in Genesis 18
  • 00:04:19.030 --> 00:04:20.070
  • a family picture,
  • 00:04:20.070 --> 00:04:22.030
  • a picture of how God
  • 00:04:22.030 --> 00:04:23.150
  • wants our families to be like.
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:25.060
  • God present, amen.
  • 00:04:25.060 --> 00:04:27.050
  • God sitting,
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:27.270
  • eating with us, amen.
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:29.080
  • The unseen guest, divine guest.
  • 00:04:29.230 --> 00:04:32.230
  • And then, he revealed his heart.
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:35.210
  • I just wanna call your attention
  • 00:04:35.210 --> 00:04:36.180
  • to the fact
  • 00:04:36.180 --> 00:04:37.110
  • that I mentioned last week
  • 00:04:37.110 --> 00:04:38.260
  • that the Jewish people today,
  • 00:04:38.260 --> 00:04:40.210
  • they don't mix dairy products,
  • 00:04:40.210 --> 00:04:42.280
  • they call it Kashrut laws,
  • 00:04:42.280 --> 00:04:44.150
  • with meat.
  • 00:04:44.150 --> 00:04:46.100
  • Now, that's their
  • 00:04:46.160 --> 00:04:49.160
  • rabbinical law, okay,
  • 00:04:49.160 --> 00:04:51.130
  • but here we see Abraham
  • 00:04:51.130 --> 00:04:52.180
  • getting meat, a young calf,
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:55.140
  • and also yogurt,
  • 00:04:55.160 --> 00:04:58.160
  • butter and cheese.
  • 00:04:58.160 --> 00:05:00.180
  • So, definitely,
  • 00:05:00.180 --> 00:05:01.080
  • in the Scriptures,
  • 00:05:01.080 --> 00:05:02.270
  • it seems all right, okay?
  • 00:05:02.270 --> 00:05:05.060
  • But there was a death.
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:06.070
  • A young calf had to die.
  • 00:05:06.070 --> 00:05:07.160
  • Just like when the prodigal son
  • 00:05:07.160 --> 00:05:08.140
  • came home,
  • 00:05:08.140 --> 00:05:09.120
  • the young calf had to die.
  • 00:05:09.120 --> 00:05:10.120
  • It's a picture
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:11.030
  • of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:05:11.030 --> 00:05:11.290
  • Blood had to be shed
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:13.150
  • for that reconciliation,
  • 00:05:13.150 --> 00:05:15.050
  • because God is a holy God, amen?
  • 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:17.060
  • God is a holy God.
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:18.100
  • And we must never forget that,
  • 00:05:18.100 --> 00:05:20.160
  • God being holy,
  • 00:05:20.160 --> 00:05:21.190
  • God has to judge.
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.180
  • Today, my sermon
  • 00:05:23.180 --> 00:05:24.040
  • is understanding
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:25.190
  • this part of God's nature.
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:31.060
  • I take great--you know,
  • 00:05:34.060 --> 00:05:37.060
  • I say this
  • 00:05:37.060 --> 00:05:37.280
  • with great trepidation
  • 00:05:37.280 --> 00:05:38.290
  • because I don't want you
  • 00:05:38.290 --> 00:05:40.060
  • to go home
  • 00:05:40.060 --> 00:05:41.200
  • with the wrong impression
  • 00:05:41.200 --> 00:05:43.180
  • or the wrong idea of God.
  • 00:05:43.180 --> 00:05:44.220
  • Because there's
  • 00:05:44.220 --> 00:05:45.160
  • a lot of teachings already,
  • 00:05:45.160 --> 00:05:46.200
  • people, you know, in the movies
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:48.040
  • that they produce
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:49.070
  • on the book of Genesis,
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:51.030
  • and judgment
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:52.160
  • is always the perspective.
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:53.260
  • Judgment is always the focus.
  • 00:05:53.260 --> 00:05:55.170
  • All right, God's anger
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:56.140
  • is always the emphasis.
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:58.090
  • So, for me, I wanna be careful.
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:05:59.220
  • Is there judgment?
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:01.040
  • Yes.
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:02.100
  • "But Pastor, God is love."
  • 00:06:02.100 --> 00:06:03.150
  • What God is, is love.
  • 00:06:03.190 --> 00:06:06.190
  • Who God is, is God.
  • 00:06:06.190 --> 00:06:09.080
  • And because he is God,
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:10.230
  • he has to judge.
  • 00:06:10.230 --> 00:06:12.070
  • There's no one above him
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:13.200
  • to judge.
  • 00:06:13.200 --> 00:06:14.280
  • If he doesn't judge,
  • 00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:16.090
  • that'll be the end of mankind.
  • 00:06:16.090 --> 00:06:17.110
  • There will come a time,
  • 00:06:17.110 --> 00:06:18.140
  • all right, sin will be rampant
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:20.080
  • and man will be no more.
  • 00:06:20.080 --> 00:06:22.030
  • They will destroy themselves.
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:23.230
  • God has to judge.
  • 00:06:23.230 --> 00:06:25.020
  • But I want to tell you
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:25.260
  • one thing,
  • 00:06:25.260 --> 00:06:26.160
  • God's nature is not to judge.
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:28.260
  • In Micah 6:8, God says,
  • 00:06:28.260 --> 00:06:31.140
  • "He has shown you, O man,
  • 00:06:31.140 --> 00:06:32.290
  • what is good;
  • 00:06:32.290 --> 00:06:34.030
  • And what the Lord requires
  • 00:06:34.030 --> 00:06:35.040
  • of you to do justice."
  • 00:06:35.040 --> 00:06:37.210
  • Say, "To do justice."
  • 00:06:37.210 --> 00:06:40.000
  • "To love mercy."
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:41.160
  • Say, "Love mercy."
  • 00:06:41.160 --> 00:06:42.250
  • "And to walk humbly."
  • 00:06:42.250 --> 00:06:45.200
  • Say, "Walk humbly with God."
  • 00:06:45.200 --> 00:06:47.150
  • So, three things.
  • 00:06:47.150 --> 00:06:48.120
  • God says, "Do justice,
  • 00:06:48.120 --> 00:06:49.180
  • love mercy," and it's an advice
  • 00:06:49.180 --> 00:06:51.040
  • especially to leaders
  • 00:06:51.040 --> 00:06:52.050
  • of God's people.
  • 00:06:52.050 --> 00:06:53.230
  • God says, "Sometimes
  • 00:06:53.230 --> 00:06:54.240
  • you have to do justice."
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:56.040
  • This is a Word to all the
  • 00:06:56.040 --> 00:06:57.010
  • magistrates, to all the judges,
  • 00:06:57.010 --> 00:06:59.260
  • to all the people
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:01.000
  • that have to execute justice.
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:02.290
  • So, the thing is this.
  • 00:07:02.290 --> 00:07:04.290
  • They have to judge,
  • 00:07:04.290 --> 00:07:06.070
  • but as judges,
  • 00:07:06.070 --> 00:07:08.000
  • even when you judge,
  • 00:07:08.000 --> 00:07:09.070
  • you should never love judgment.
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:11.290
  • That's what God says in Micah,
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:14.200
  • "Do justice, but love mercy."
  • 00:07:14.200 --> 00:07:16.250
  • Your heart loves mercy,
  • 00:07:16.250 --> 00:07:18.050
  • and the word "mercy" there
  • 00:07:18.050 --> 00:07:19.000
  • is "grace."
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:19.290
  • "Chesed," which is translated
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:22.050
  • by Delitzsch,
  • 00:07:22.050 --> 00:07:23.040
  • the Hebrew scholar, as "grace."
  • 00:07:23.040 --> 00:07:25.110
  • Love grace, but do justice.
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:27.090
  • Sometimes we do that
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:28.000
  • for our children, amen?
  • 00:07:28.000 --> 00:07:30.030
  • We discipline them,
  • 00:07:30.030 --> 00:07:31.060
  • we do justice,
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:32.100
  • but we love mercy.
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:34.090
  • And how fast we are to run
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:36.220
  • to them, so to speak,
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:38.100
  • the moment their heart is soft.
  • 00:07:38.100 --> 00:07:40.120
  • You know, they've learned
  • 00:07:40.120 --> 00:07:41.050
  • their lesson, amen.
  • 00:07:41.050 --> 00:07:42.180
  • How fast we are, right?
  • 00:07:42.180 --> 00:07:44.010
  • Talking about normal parents.
  • 00:07:44.240 --> 00:07:47.240
  • Amen.
  • 00:07:47.240 --> 00:07:49.100
  • So, God wants you to love mercy,
  • 00:07:49.100 --> 00:07:52.040
  • but there are Christians,
  • 00:07:52.040 --> 00:07:54.040
  • some sentimental Christians
  • 00:07:54.040 --> 00:07:56.150
  • who love mercy
  • 00:07:56.150 --> 00:07:57.240
  • and also do mercy.
  • 00:07:57.240 --> 00:08:00.150
  • That's not God's way.
  • 00:08:00.150 --> 00:08:02.280
  • Sometimes
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:03.210
  • you have to do justice.
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:05.000
  • Amen.
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:06.090
  • Your children want you
  • 00:08:06.090 --> 00:08:07.030
  • to stop them,
  • 00:08:07.030 --> 00:08:09.010
  • give them boundaries.
  • 00:08:09.010 --> 00:08:11.040
  • They want you to parent them,
  • 00:08:11.040 --> 00:08:12.250
  • amen?
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:14.120
  • They don't want you
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:15.040
  • to be their best friend.
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:16.200
  • They want you
  • 00:08:16.200 --> 00:08:17.130
  • to be their father,
  • 00:08:17.130 --> 00:08:18.060
  • their mother.
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:19.070
  • Amen.
  • 00:08:19.070 --> 00:08:20.060
  • Friendship comes later.
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:21.230
  • And please, don't rob them.
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:24.040
  • They are not orphans.
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:28.160
  • Amen?
  • 00:08:28.160 --> 00:08:29.220
  • So here, we have God
  • 00:08:29.220 --> 00:08:31.000
  • coming to the house
  • 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:32.020
  • and God revealing
  • 00:08:32.020 --> 00:08:33.070
  • the secrets of his heart
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:34.150
  • to Abraham and Sarah,
  • 00:08:34.150 --> 00:08:36.200
  • saying that this time next year,
  • 00:08:36.200 --> 00:08:38.050
  • Sarah will have a son.
  • 00:08:38.050 --> 00:08:39.120
  • That's been their dream
  • 00:08:39.120 --> 00:08:40.100
  • all this while.
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:41.240
  • What a beautiful picture.
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:42.230
  • God eats,
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:43.150
  • God celebrates with them,
  • 00:08:43.150 --> 00:08:44.260
  • and then God gives
  • 00:08:44.260 --> 00:08:47.140
  • this wonderful news.
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:50.260
  • Amen.
  • 00:08:50.260 --> 00:08:52.120
  • It was such a beautiful,
  • 00:08:52.120 --> 00:08:53.220
  • warm, intimate surrounding.
  • 00:08:54.060 --> 00:08:57.060
  • You know,
  • 00:08:57.060 --> 00:08:57.290
  • I wanna tell you something.
  • 00:08:57.290 --> 00:08:58.280
  • Twelve disciples
  • 00:08:58.280 --> 00:08:59.220
  • walked with Jesus.
  • 00:08:59.220 --> 00:09:01.000
  • They were familiar with him,
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:03.260
  • but few were intimate
  • 00:09:03.260 --> 00:09:05.180
  • with his mind,
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:07.200
  • the counselors of his heart.
  • 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:09.100
  • Doesn't mean you walk with Jesus
  • 00:09:09.100 --> 00:09:10.070
  • and you are familiar with him
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:12.040
  • that you commune with him.
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:15.220
  • Communion and familiarity
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:18.060
  • are two different things.
  • 00:09:18.060 --> 00:09:19.190
  • Intimacy and familiarity
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:21.050
  • are two different things.
  • 00:09:21.050 --> 00:09:22.160
  • The centurion
  • 00:09:22.160 --> 00:09:23.170
  • never walked with Jesus,
  • 00:09:23.170 --> 00:09:25.030
  • the one in Capernaum.
  • 00:09:25.030 --> 00:09:26.100
  • He told Jesus,
  • 00:09:26.100 --> 00:09:27.030
  • "I know who you are.
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:28.070
  • Just speak the Word
  • 00:09:28.070 --> 00:09:28.270
  • and my servant will be healed,
  • 00:09:28.270 --> 00:09:30.200
  • because I have servants
  • 00:09:30.200 --> 00:09:31.230
  • under me."
  • 00:09:31.230 --> 00:09:32.280
  • He didn't even spend
  • 00:09:32.280 --> 00:09:33.270
  • walking around Galilee
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:35.220
  • with Jesus.
  • 00:09:35.220 --> 00:09:36.160
  • He just met Jesus,
  • 00:09:36.160 --> 00:09:37.200
  • but there was that revelation
  • 00:09:37.200 --> 00:09:38.240
  • of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:39.180
  • to see who Jesus was.
  • 00:09:39.180 --> 00:09:41.010
  • The disciples were lacking,
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:44.090
  • but they were familiar,
  • 00:09:44.090 --> 00:09:45.130
  • but not intimate.
  • 00:09:45.130 --> 00:09:47.000
  • This centurion was intimate
  • 00:09:47.000 --> 00:09:48.200
  • with his thoughts,
  • 00:09:48.200 --> 00:09:50.060
  • and it pleased Jesus.
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.130
  • Jesus was so happy.
  • 00:09:51.130 --> 00:09:52.220
  • All right, we see another one,
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:54.000
  • the Syrophoenician woman.
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:55.210
  • We see glimpses of people,
  • 00:09:55.210 --> 00:09:57.130
  • Zacchaeus, they look
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:09:59.250
  • right through the veneer
  • 00:09:59.250 --> 00:10:02.080
  • of the flesh of our Lord Jesus
  • 00:10:02.080 --> 00:10:04.000
  • and saw the God
  • 00:10:04.000 --> 00:10:05.090
  • of love and grace.
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:08.060
  • Amen?
  • 00:10:08.060 --> 00:10:08.260
  • And that's why they perceive
  • 00:10:08.260 --> 00:10:09.200
  • here, and they know
  • 00:10:09.200 --> 00:10:11.180
  • that he will grant them.
  • 00:10:11.180 --> 00:10:13.060
  • Amen.
  • 00:10:13.060 --> 00:10:13.270
  • Are you listening, people?
  • 00:10:13.270 --> 00:10:15.150
  • May you all have eyes,
  • 00:10:15.150 --> 00:10:17.080
  • and me also,
  • 00:10:17.080 --> 00:10:18.160
  • may we all have eyes to see
  • 00:10:18.160 --> 00:10:20.130
  • and a heart to hear.
  • 00:10:20.130 --> 00:10:23.130
  • We just don't want to be
  • 00:10:23.130 --> 00:10:24.010
  • familiar with the Bible,
  • 00:10:24.010 --> 00:10:25.080
  • look at all those portions,
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:27.030
  • but we are not intimate
  • 00:10:27.030 --> 00:10:29.060
  • with the thoughts
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:29.260
  • of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:10:29.260 --> 00:10:30.160
  • in that passage.
  • 00:10:30.160 --> 00:10:31.210
  • Are you listening?
  • 00:10:31.210 --> 00:10:32.160
  • And then they got up
  • 00:10:32.160 --> 00:10:33.250
  • after they ate and they walked
  • 00:10:33.250 --> 00:10:35.210
  • as if they were going
  • 00:10:35.210 --> 00:10:37.010
  • towards the plains of Jordan.
  • 00:10:37.010 --> 00:10:39.130
  • We'll continue our story
  • 00:10:39.130 --> 00:10:40.030
  • from here, amen.
  • 00:10:40.030 --> 00:10:41.160
  • And Abraham walked them there.
  • 00:10:41.160 --> 00:10:42.220
  • And by the way,
  • 00:10:42.220 --> 00:10:43.260
  • they were laughing, right?
  • 00:10:43.260 --> 00:10:44.270
  • I mean, Abraham was laughing.
  • 00:10:44.270 --> 00:10:47.010
  • Most likely Abraham was laughing
  • 00:10:47.010 --> 00:10:47.280
  • also, but Sarah was laughing
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:49.020
  • when she heard
  • 00:10:49.020 --> 00:10:49.290
  • that she would have a son
  • 00:10:49.290 --> 00:10:51.050
  • at 90 years old.
  • 00:10:51.050 --> 00:10:52.130
  • She started laughing.
  • 00:10:52.130 --> 00:10:53.090
  • "Shall I have pleasure?"
  • 00:10:53.090 --> 00:10:54.120
  • We covered all that last week,
  • 00:10:54.120 --> 00:10:55.110
  • amen.
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:56.200
  • And the Lord says,
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:57.120
  • "Did I hear Sarah laugh?"
  • 00:10:57.120 --> 00:10:58.160
  • She said, "No," in the tent.
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:11:01.060
  • "No, I heard you laugh."
  • 00:11:01.060 --> 00:11:03.010
  • So, when the boy was born,
  • 00:11:03.010 --> 00:11:04.000
  • they called his name "Laughter,"
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:06.070
  • Yitzchak.
  • 00:11:06.070 --> 00:11:08.230
  • So, here they were,
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:09.220
  • they were about to go
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:10.130
  • to the plains of Jordan,
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:11.060
  • and Abraham
  • 00:11:11.060 --> 00:11:13.180
  • walked with his divine guest.
  • 00:11:13.180 --> 00:11:15.110
  • And the two men,
  • 00:11:15.110 --> 00:11:16.210
  • which are two angels--
  • 00:11:16.210 --> 00:11:18.040
  • the Bible says angels
  • 00:11:18.040 --> 00:11:18.290
  • can turn into a form of a man.
  • 00:11:18.290 --> 00:11:21.200
  • I heard last week, as we were--
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:24.010
  • I was talking
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:24.230
  • with Pastor Darren.
  • 00:11:24.230 --> 00:11:26.210
  • Pastor Darren was telling me
  • 00:11:26.210 --> 00:11:27.210
  • when he was in Perth, you know,
  • 00:11:27.210 --> 00:11:29.040
  • it's not so nice
  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:31.040
  • to drive at night
  • 00:11:31.040 --> 00:11:32.190
  • because they don't have, like,
  • 00:11:32.190 --> 00:11:33.260
  • street lamps and all that.
  • 00:11:33.260 --> 00:11:35.040
  • So, he says that he was caught,
  • 00:11:35.040 --> 00:11:36.120
  • I think, somewhere
  • 00:11:36.120 --> 00:11:37.160
  • having dinner or whatever,
  • 00:11:37.160 --> 00:11:38.230
  • and darkness fell real fast,
  • 00:11:38.230 --> 00:11:40.270
  • all right?
  • 00:11:40.270 --> 00:11:41.290
  • And Singaporeans
  • 00:11:41.290 --> 00:11:42.280
  • are not used to it, right?
  • 00:11:42.280 --> 00:11:44.080
  • So, he says the road
  • 00:11:44.080 --> 00:11:45.060
  • is pitch dark,
  • 00:11:45.060 --> 00:11:46.260
  • and as he drove,
  • 00:11:46.260 --> 00:11:48.010
  • he was kind of hoping
  • 00:11:48.010 --> 00:11:48.260
  • that he can see his way around,
  • 00:11:48.260 --> 00:11:50.160
  • all right, he know his way back
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:51.260
  • to his cottage
  • 00:11:51.260 --> 00:11:53.120
  • or wherever he was staying.
  • 00:11:53.120 --> 00:11:54.280
  • And lo and behold,
  • 00:11:54.280 --> 00:11:55.240
  • a truck came through
  • 00:11:55.240 --> 00:11:57.100
  • with bright lights
  • 00:11:57.100 --> 00:11:59.190
  • shining way down the road,
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:02.240
  • and all he did
  • 00:12:02.240 --> 00:12:03.180
  • was that he followed the truck
  • 00:12:03.180 --> 00:12:05.170
  • and the truck brought him home.
  • 00:12:05.170 --> 00:12:07.140
  • Now, I've heard
  • 00:12:07.140 --> 00:12:08.120
  • many, many times--now,
  • 00:12:08.120 --> 00:12:09.180
  • I'm not saying it's an angel,
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:10.240
  • but it very well could be.
  • 00:12:10.240 --> 00:12:13.070
  • Many of you
  • 00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:13.260
  • have these kind of experiences.
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:14.210
  • I don't want to give
  • 00:12:14.210 --> 00:12:15.180
  • a spectacular experience
  • 00:12:15.180 --> 00:12:16.260
  • because you might not identify.
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:18.050
  • These kind of experiences,
  • 00:12:18.050 --> 00:12:19.210
  • when you're about
  • 00:12:19.210 --> 00:12:20.120
  • to cross the road
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:21.140
  • and you don't see anything,
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:22.090
  • you just happen to cross,
  • 00:12:22.090 --> 00:12:23.250
  • and you feel something
  • 00:12:23.250 --> 00:12:24.190
  • pull you back, like a wind.
  • 00:12:24.190 --> 00:12:26.210
  • And then VROOM,
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:27.150
  • there's a motorcycle
  • 00:12:27.150 --> 00:12:28.080
  • that just came from nowhere.
  • 00:12:28.080 --> 00:12:29.260
  • How do you explain that?
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:31.030
  • Who pulled you back?
  • 00:12:31.030 --> 00:12:32.130
  • These are simple things
  • 00:12:32.130 --> 00:12:33.130
  • that we take for granted.
  • 00:12:33.130 --> 00:12:35.000
  • But the Bible says,
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:35.160
  • "Be not forgetful
  • 00:12:35.160 --> 00:12:36.060
  • to entertain strangers,
  • 00:12:36.060 --> 00:12:37.000
  • for some have entertained
  • 00:12:37.000 --> 00:12:38.230
  • angels unaware."
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:40.150
  • So, if you see them wearing
  • 00:12:40.150 --> 00:12:41.140
  • a coat and their coat is high,
  • 00:12:41.140 --> 00:12:43.000
  • right, you know it's an angel.
  • 00:12:44.050 --> 00:12:47.050
  • Right?
  • 00:12:47.050 --> 00:12:48.040
  • So, they don't appear like that.
  • 00:12:48.040 --> 00:12:49.160
  • They appear like a man.
  • 00:12:49.160 --> 00:12:51.030
  • So, the Bible says
  • 00:12:51.030 --> 00:12:51.260
  • even when Abraham
  • 00:12:51.260 --> 00:12:52.270
  • was talking to the Lord,
  • 00:12:52.270 --> 00:12:53.240
  • the Bible says the two men
  • 00:12:53.240 --> 00:12:54.270
  • went toward Sodom.
  • 00:12:54.270 --> 00:12:57.040
  • So, let's follow the story now.
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:58.010
  • "And the Lord said,
  • 00:12:58.010 --> 00:12:59.060
  • 'Because the outcry.'"
  • 00:12:59.060 --> 00:13:01.030
  • All right, the men went.
  • 00:13:01.030 --> 00:13:02.140
  • "The Lord said,
  • 00:13:02.140 --> 00:13:03.200
  • 'Because the outcry
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:04.170
  • against Sodom and Gomorrah
  • 00:13:04.170 --> 00:13:05.260
  • is great, and because
  • 00:13:05.260 --> 00:13:06.280
  • their sin is very grave,
  • 00:13:06.280 --> 00:13:08.090
  • I will go down now
  • 00:13:08.090 --> 00:13:09.170
  • and see whether they have done
  • 00:13:09.170 --> 00:13:10.120
  • altogether according
  • 00:13:10.120 --> 00:13:11.130
  • to the outcry against it
  • 00:13:11.130 --> 00:13:13.010
  • that has come to Me;
  • 00:13:13.010 --> 00:13:14.050
  • and if not, I will know.'
  • 00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:15.160
  • Then the men
  • 00:13:15.160 --> 00:13:16.130
  • turned away from there
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:17.120
  • and went toward Sodom,
  • 00:13:17.120 --> 00:13:18.160
  • but Abraham still stood
  • 00:13:18.160 --> 00:13:19.220
  • before the Lord."
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:21.060
  • So, the two angels
  • 00:13:21.060 --> 00:13:22.050
  • went toward Sodom
  • 00:13:22.050 --> 00:13:23.120
  • as if they knew the mind
  • 00:13:23.120 --> 00:13:24.170
  • of the Lord,
  • 00:13:24.170 --> 00:13:25.140
  • and they both straightaway went.
  • 00:13:25.140 --> 00:13:26.230
  • So, two of them went,
  • 00:13:26.230 --> 00:13:27.220
  • and Abraham
  • 00:13:27.220 --> 00:13:28.150
  • was on a higher plain.
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:29.200
  • Hebron is higher,
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:31.140
  • but from Hebron,
  • 00:13:31.140 --> 00:13:32.140
  • a distance down,
  • 00:13:32.140 --> 00:13:33.220
  • you can see the Dead Sea
  • 00:13:33.220 --> 00:13:34.290
  • and you can see the cities
  • 00:13:34.290 --> 00:13:36.080
  • of Sodom and Gomorrah.
  • 00:13:36.080 --> 00:13:37.030
  • Amen.
  • 00:13:37.030 --> 00:13:38.080
  • Remember when Lot, his nephew,
  • 00:13:38.080 --> 00:13:40.160
  • was given the choice,
  • 00:13:40.160 --> 00:13:42.050
  • because they are shepherds,
  • 00:13:42.050 --> 00:13:44.170
  • all right, and caretakers
  • 00:13:44.170 --> 00:13:45.250
  • were fighting among each other,
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:48.030
  • and Abraham says, "No,
  • 00:13:48.030 --> 00:13:49.020
  • it's not nice for us to fight.
  • 00:13:49.020 --> 00:13:49.290
  • They are Hittites and Parasites
  • 00:13:49.290 --> 00:13:50.290
  • in the land.
  • 00:13:50.290 --> 00:13:52.050
  • You take the right,
  • 00:13:52.050 --> 00:13:53.000
  • I'll take the left.
  • 00:13:53.000 --> 00:13:54.270
  • You take the left,
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:55.190
  • I'll take the right."
  • 00:13:55.190 --> 00:13:56.120
  • What a humble man Abraham is.
  • 00:13:56.120 --> 00:13:58.060
  • And the Bible says
  • 00:13:58.060 --> 00:13:59.030
  • that Lot saw the beautiful,
  • 00:13:59.030 --> 00:14:00.110
  • fertile crescent
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:02.160
  • of the Jordan Valley.
  • 00:14:02.160 --> 00:14:04.200
  • It was lush, it was green.
  • 00:14:04.200 --> 00:14:06.000
  • It's not like today,
  • 00:14:06.000 --> 00:14:07.000
  • the Dead Sea area.
  • 00:14:07.000 --> 00:14:07.270
  • It was green.
  • 00:14:07.270 --> 00:14:08.240
  • There were rivers running.
  • 00:14:08.240 --> 00:14:09.270
  • The Bible says,
  • 00:14:09.270 --> 00:14:10.180
  • "Like the Garden of Eden."
  • 00:14:10.180 --> 00:14:11.290
  • It looks like Garden of Eden.
  • 00:14:11.290 --> 00:14:12.260
  • So, he's a man
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:13.190
  • that went by sight, Lot,
  • 00:14:13.190 --> 00:14:15.070
  • and he chose by sight.
  • 00:14:15.070 --> 00:14:17.130
  • Later on, when enemies
  • 00:14:17.130 --> 00:14:18.260
  • came to invade
  • 00:14:18.260 --> 00:14:20.210
  • and plunder the land,
  • 00:14:20.210 --> 00:14:21.180
  • it was Abraham that rescued him.
  • 00:14:21.180 --> 00:14:23.080
  • And after Abraham rescued him,
  • 00:14:23.110 --> 00:14:26.110
  • tied to Melchizedek
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:27.280
  • and all that,
  • 00:14:27.280 --> 00:14:29.040
  • and there's no record
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:29.250
  • that Lot ever tied.
  • 00:14:29.250 --> 00:14:31.080
  • Lot went back
  • 00:14:31.080 --> 00:14:33.240
  • to the city of destruction.
  • 00:14:33.240 --> 00:14:35.230
  • So, this is something
  • 00:14:35.230 --> 00:14:36.260
  • very interesting, all right?
  • 00:14:36.260 --> 00:14:38.140
  • I want to tell you something
  • 00:14:38.140 --> 00:14:39.070
  • about what the Scripture says.
  • 00:14:39.070 --> 00:14:41.220
  • But before we go on reading,
  • 00:14:41.220 --> 00:14:43.060
  • I want you to go to
  • 00:14:43.060 --> 00:14:44.010
  • Genesis--sorry, 2 Peter 2.
  • 00:14:44.010 --> 00:14:46.100
  • 2 Peter 2.
  • 00:14:46.100 --> 00:14:48.070
  • If we have 2 Peter 2.
  • 00:14:48.070 --> 00:14:49.170
  • Yeah,
  • 00:14:49.170 --> 00:14:50.140
  • "And turning the cities of--"
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:51.220
  • this is New Testament now.
  • 00:14:51.220 --> 00:14:53.040
  • "And turning--
  • 00:14:53.040 --> 00:14:53.270
  • God turning the cities
  • 00:14:53.270 --> 00:14:54.230
  • of Sodom and Gomorrah
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:55.220
  • into ashes, condemned them
  • 00:14:55.220 --> 00:14:57.170
  • to destruction, making them
  • 00:14:57.170 --> 00:14:59.090
  • an example
  • 00:14:59.090 --> 00:15:00.090
  • to those who afterward
  • 00:15:00.090 --> 00:15:01.050
  • would live ungodly."
  • 00:15:01.050 --> 00:15:02.050
  • Next,
  • 00:15:02.050 --> 00:15:03.060
  • "And delivered righteous Lot."
  • 00:15:03.060 --> 00:15:05.000
  • Underline that, "Righteous Lot."
  • 00:15:05.000 --> 00:15:06.250
  • So, Lot was righteous.
  • 00:15:06.250 --> 00:15:08.160
  • Today, I'm gonna share with you
  • 00:15:08.160 --> 00:15:10.050
  • about a defeated, righteous man,
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:12.270
  • a man who had a
  • 00:15:12.270 --> 00:15:13.230
  • family and lost his family.
  • 00:15:14.090 --> 00:15:17.090
  • He finally ended up
  • 00:15:17.090 --> 00:15:18.080
  • with only two daughters,
  • 00:15:18.080 --> 00:15:19.170
  • but it's not
  • 00:15:19.170 --> 00:15:20.110
  • a proper relationship.
  • 00:15:20.110 --> 00:15:21.280
  • A man who was called righteous,
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:24.050
  • but defeated.
  • 00:15:24.050 --> 00:15:26.060
  • Abraham is righteous,
  • 00:15:26.060 --> 00:15:28.030
  • but Abraham was exalted.
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:31.180
  • When all the destruction
  • 00:15:31.180 --> 00:15:32.110
  • was happening,
  • 00:15:32.110 --> 00:15:33.000
  • he was on a mountain,
  • 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:34.110
  • looking down.
  • 00:15:34.110 --> 00:15:35.170
  • I said, "Looking down."
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:37.200
  • The world is hating
  • 00:15:37.200 --> 00:15:39.200
  • towards judgment.
  • 00:15:39.200 --> 00:15:40.290
  • The King is gonna return to
  • 00:15:40.290 --> 00:15:43.140
  • set this world right,
  • 00:15:43.140 --> 00:15:46.070
  • and there will be
  • 00:15:46.070 --> 00:15:46.260
  • a millennium rule
  • 00:15:46.260 --> 00:15:48.090
  • of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:15:48.090 --> 00:15:49.220
  • Then, the gospel of the kingdom
  • 00:15:49.220 --> 00:15:51.010
  • will be preached once again,
  • 00:15:51.010 --> 00:15:53.270
  • all right, before he comes.
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:55.100
  • Then, when he comes,
  • 00:15:55.100 --> 00:15:56.030
  • that kingdom
  • 00:15:56.030 --> 00:15:56.270
  • will be established,
  • 00:15:56.270 --> 00:15:57.220
  • because finally it's no more
  • 00:15:57.220 --> 00:15:58.270
  • an absentee kingdom.
  • 00:15:58.270 --> 00:16:01.070
  • The King--
  • 00:16:01.070 --> 00:16:02.170
  • Kingdom needs the King.
  • 00:16:02.170 --> 00:16:03.180
  • There's a King.
  • 00:16:03.180 --> 00:16:04.210
  • The King is here.
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:06.250
  • And the Bible says his scepter
  • 00:16:06.250 --> 00:16:08.010
  • is a scepter of righteousness.
  • 00:16:08.010 --> 00:16:10.120
  • He will judge for the poor,
  • 00:16:10.120 --> 00:16:12.230
  • amen.
  • 00:16:12.230 --> 00:16:13.280
  • And God says,
  • 00:16:13.280 --> 00:16:14.140
  • "I'm gonna send me Son."
  • 00:16:14.140 --> 00:16:15.240
  • Okay?
  • 00:16:15.240 --> 00:16:16.250
  • "My Son will rule."
  • 00:16:16.250 --> 00:16:17.200
  • The return of the King.
  • 00:16:17.200 --> 00:16:18.200
  • This is the return of the King.
  • 00:16:18.200 --> 00:16:21.050
  • And when the King returns
  • 00:16:21.050 --> 00:16:22.050
  • after 7 years
  • 00:16:22.050 --> 00:16:23.030
  • of what Daniel prophesied, amen,
  • 00:16:24.200 --> 00:16:27.200
  • the 70th week of Daniel,
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:31.070
  • the last part that's
  • 00:16:31.070 --> 00:16:32.110
  • to be fulfilled will happen
  • 00:16:32.110 --> 00:16:33.070
  • in the 3 1/2 years
  • 00:16:33.070 --> 00:16:34.280
  • of great tribulation.
  • 00:16:34.280 --> 00:16:37.090
  • All right, Jesus will come back
  • 00:16:37.090 --> 00:16:38.030
  • at the end
  • 00:16:38.030 --> 00:16:39.030
  • of that great tribulation
  • 00:16:39.030 --> 00:16:40.050
  • when armies
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:41.110
  • are about to destroy Israel.
  • 00:16:41.110 --> 00:16:43.020
  • Israel will look up
  • 00:16:43.020 --> 00:16:43.290
  • and they will see him return.
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:45.270
  • He will save Israel.
  • 00:16:45.270 --> 00:16:47.080
  • Amen?
  • 00:16:47.080 --> 00:16:48.030
  • And he will establish his rule
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.090
  • from Jerusalem.
  • 00:16:49.090 --> 00:16:50.260
  • The Bible says that.
  • 00:16:50.260 --> 00:16:53.100
  • And then there are scoffers that
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:55.130
  • come in these last days saying,
  • 00:16:55.130 --> 00:16:56.290
  • "Where is the promises coming?
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:16:58.180
  • We hear people preaching
  • 00:16:58.180 --> 00:16:59.140
  • on end times and this and that."
  • 00:16:59.140 --> 00:17:00.240
  • Today, slowly, slowly,
  • 00:17:00.240 --> 00:17:01.260
  • you find that the preaching
  • 00:17:01.260 --> 00:17:03.040
  • of end times
  • 00:17:03.040 --> 00:17:03.270
  • is now put on the shelf,
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:04.280
  • or even totally cast out.
  • 00:17:05.190 --> 00:17:08.190
  • The Bible says, Peter says,
  • 00:17:08.190 --> 00:17:09.210
  • "In the end times,
  • 00:17:09.210 --> 00:17:10.200
  • scoffers will come, saying,
  • 00:17:10.200 --> 00:17:11.240
  • 'Where's the promise
  • 00:17:11.240 --> 00:17:12.160
  • of his coming?
  • 00:17:12.160 --> 00:17:13.100
  • Where, where, where?
  • 00:17:13.100 --> 00:17:14.070
  • Since our fathers fell asleep,
  • 00:17:14.070 --> 00:17:15.090
  • everything has gone as normal.'"
  • 00:17:15.090 --> 00:17:16.180
  • And the Bible says these people
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:18.200
  • are ignorant of one thing, okay?
  • 00:17:18.230 --> 00:17:21.230
  • This is what the portion says
  • 00:17:21.230 --> 00:17:22.190
  • in chapter 3.
  • 00:17:22.190 --> 00:17:24.120
  • Next chapter,
  • 00:17:24.120 --> 00:17:25.080
  • "The Lord is not slack
  • 00:17:25.080 --> 00:17:26.180
  • concerning His promise,"
  • 00:17:26.180 --> 00:17:27.240
  • his promise to return.
  • 00:17:27.240 --> 00:17:29.120
  • He's not slack.
  • 00:17:29.120 --> 00:17:30.050
  • He's not slacking concerning
  • 00:17:30.110 --> 00:17:33.110
  • the promise of his return.
  • 00:17:33.150 --> 00:17:36.150
  • To save us--
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:38.060
  • Before the return of Christ,
  • 00:17:38.060 --> 00:17:40.000
  • let me explain.
  • 00:17:40.000 --> 00:17:40.200
  • I'm gonna say this
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:41.100
  • one more time.
  • 00:17:41.100 --> 00:17:41.270
  • I've said this
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:42.210
  • a number of times.
  • 00:17:42.210 --> 00:17:43.110
  • The rapture
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:44.010
  • is not second coming.
  • 00:17:44.010 --> 00:17:44.290
  • Rapture is a private affair
  • 00:17:44.290 --> 00:17:46.120
  • for his church.
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:47.220
  • All right?
  • 00:17:47.220 --> 00:17:48.170
  • He says, "I go to prepare
  • 00:17:48.170 --> 00:17:49.180
  • a place for you.
  • 00:17:49.180 --> 00:17:50.180
  • And when I go, I will come again
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:52.090
  • and receive you unto myself."
  • 00:17:52.090 --> 00:17:53.190
  • That's the rapture.
  • 00:17:53.190 --> 00:17:54.280
  • 1 Thessalonians talks about,
  • 00:17:54.280 --> 00:17:55.290
  • all right,
  • 00:17:55.290 --> 00:17:57.030
  • the Lord will come in,
  • 00:17:57.030 --> 00:17:58.070
  • "harpazo," in Greek.
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:17:59.220
  • He will seize us.
  • 00:17:59.220 --> 00:18:01.050
  • It's the story
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:02.210
  • all over again of Enoch.
  • 00:18:02.210 --> 00:18:04.010
  • Enoch never saw death.
  • 00:18:04.010 --> 00:18:05.240
  • Enoch was raptured.
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:07.100
  • Enoch was the father
  • 00:18:07.100 --> 00:18:09.200
  • of Methuselah.
  • 00:18:09.200 --> 00:18:11.110
  • And God said, "Flood is coming."
  • 00:18:11.110 --> 00:18:14.110
  • And I want to say
  • 00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:15.010
  • something to you.
  • 00:18:15.010 --> 00:18:16.020
  • God is not a God that jumps
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:17.080
  • on the gun straight away.
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:18.240
  • "Oh, you sinned.
  • 00:18:18.240 --> 00:18:19.130
  • I'm gonna blast you."
  • 00:18:19.130 --> 00:18:20.090
  • No, God waited.
  • 00:18:20.090 --> 00:18:21.110
  • God waited.
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:22.280
  • "God is not slack
  • 00:18:22.280 --> 00:18:23.180
  • concerning his promise,
  • 00:18:23.180 --> 00:18:25.150
  • as some count slackness,
  • 00:18:25.150 --> 00:18:27.000
  • he's longsuffering towards us,
  • 00:18:27.000 --> 00:18:28.260
  • not willing
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:30.000
  • that any should perish."
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:32.010
  • Not willing!
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:35.220
  • He's not willing!
  • 00:18:37.010 --> 00:18:40.010
  • He's not willing.
  • 00:18:40.100 --> 00:18:43.100
  • Are there those who perish?
  • 00:18:43.100 --> 00:18:44.260
  • Yes, but in God's heart,
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:47.100
  • he's not willing.
  • 00:18:47.100 --> 00:18:49.020
  • "Then why don't he save them,
  • 00:18:49.020 --> 00:18:50.070
  • Pastor Prince?"
  • 00:18:50.070 --> 00:18:51.120
  • Free choice.
  • 00:18:51.120 --> 00:18:53.260
  • Man was not a robot--
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:56.000
  • was not created a robot.
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:57.070
  • God gave man a choice.
  • 00:18:57.070 --> 00:18:58.250
  • You can get up right now
  • 00:18:58.250 --> 00:18:59.160
  • and walk away.
  • 00:18:59.160 --> 00:19:00.110
  • God won't stop you.
  • 00:19:00.110 --> 00:19:02.180
  • Jesus said, "How I wish
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:04.210
  • Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:07.080
  • to gather you as a mother hen
  • 00:19:07.080 --> 00:19:09.170
  • would gather her chicks."
  • 00:19:09.170 --> 00:19:10.250
  • But notice the forwards,
  • 00:19:10.250 --> 00:19:12.000
  • "But you would not."
  • 00:19:12.050 --> 00:19:15.050
  • And now you're left to yourself,
  • 00:19:19.110 --> 00:19:20.280
  • and armies will come around you,
  • 00:19:20.280 --> 00:19:22.200
  • and that happened.
  • 00:19:22.200 --> 00:19:23.180
  • We know it happened.
  • 00:19:23.180 --> 00:19:26.180
  • So, God is not slack, okay,
  • 00:19:26.180 --> 00:19:28.030
  • "But he's not willing
  • 00:19:28.030 --> 00:19:29.030
  • that any should perish
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:30.020
  • but that all
  • 00:19:30.020 --> 00:19:31.040
  • should come to repentance."
  • 00:19:31.040 --> 00:19:32.100
  • So, why is God delaying?
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:33.210
  • He's waiting
  • 00:19:33.210 --> 00:19:34.110
  • for more to be saved.
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:37.100
  • Good God.
  • 00:19:37.100 --> 00:19:37.250
  • Don't despise his slackness.
  • 00:19:37.250 --> 00:19:40.000
  • Don't despise his slackness.
  • 00:19:40.000 --> 00:19:42.040
  • Sometimes I look at some
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:43.030
  • terrorists in the world
  • 00:19:43.030 --> 00:19:44.100
  • and I say, "God,
  • 00:19:44.100 --> 00:19:45.210
  • send missiles from heaven."
  • 00:19:46.110 --> 00:19:49.110
  • Aren't you glad I'm not God?
  • 00:19:50.050 --> 00:19:53.050
  • And then I see a story
  • 00:19:53.050 --> 00:19:54.140
  • in the Bible of a terrorist,
  • 00:19:56.100 --> 00:19:59.100
  • and what did God do?
  • 00:19:59.100 --> 00:20:01.090
  • God knock him off
  • 00:20:01.090 --> 00:20:02.100
  • his high horse, literally,
  • 00:20:02.100 --> 00:20:04.080
  • and saved him, and made him
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:05.200
  • the greatest apostle of grace
  • 00:20:05.200 --> 00:20:07.150
  • that the world has ever seen,
  • 00:20:07.150 --> 00:20:09.200
  • the Apostle Paul.
  • 00:20:09.200 --> 00:20:11.190
  • I thank God for that, God
  • 00:20:11.190 --> 00:20:12.120
  • doesn't deal the way man,
  • 00:20:12.120 --> 00:20:13.270
  • you know?
  • 00:20:13.270 --> 00:20:15.080
  • What a heart.
  • 00:20:15.080 --> 00:20:16.260
  • So, Enoch realized.
  • 00:20:16.260 --> 00:20:18.260
  • God told Enoch judgment
  • 00:20:18.260 --> 00:20:20.050
  • is coming.
  • 00:20:20.050 --> 00:20:21.040
  • You will find Enoch's prophesy
  • 00:20:21.040 --> 00:20:22.010
  • in the New Testament,
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:22.280
  • in the book of Jude.
  • 00:20:22.280 --> 00:20:24.110
  • "Behold, the Lord cometh
  • 00:20:24.110 --> 00:20:25.050
  • with ten thousands
  • 00:20:25.050 --> 00:20:26.000
  • of his saints,
  • 00:20:26.000 --> 00:20:26.220
  • to judge the ungodliness
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:27.240
  • of the ungodly,
  • 00:20:27.240 --> 00:20:29.000
  • of the ungodly speeches
  • 00:20:29.000 --> 00:20:30.020
  • they have spoken against him."
  • 00:20:30.020 --> 00:20:31.070
  • All right, and Enoch saw it,
  • 00:20:31.070 --> 00:20:32.140
  • and God says,
  • 00:20:32.140 --> 00:20:33.180
  • "Enoch, judgment is coming."
  • 00:20:33.180 --> 00:20:34.260
  • Enoch says, "God, I'm ready."
  • 00:20:34.260 --> 00:20:36.080
  • "The flood is coming
  • 00:20:36.080 --> 00:20:37.200
  • to the earth."
  • 00:20:37.200 --> 00:20:38.100
  • "I am ready."
  • 00:20:38.100 --> 00:20:39.030
  • And God says,
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:39.290
  • "You will have a son."
  • 00:20:39.290 --> 00:20:41.080
  • Says, "Yes, thank you, Lord."
  • 00:20:42.030 --> 00:20:45.030
  • But God says, "I want you
  • 00:20:45.030 --> 00:20:45.260
  • to name him Methuselah."
  • 00:20:47.130 --> 00:20:50.130
  • Indian name, Methuselah.
  • 00:20:50.220 --> 00:20:53.220
  • Okay, it's Methuselah,
  • 00:20:53.220 --> 00:20:56.020
  • okay, but actually in Hebrew,
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:57.260
  • "Muth," "Muth" is death.
  • 00:20:57.260 --> 00:21:00.210
  • So, "Methuselah."
  • 00:21:00.210 --> 00:21:02.290
  • "You call his name Methuselah."
  • 00:21:02.290 --> 00:21:04.150
  • Say, "Lord, what do you mean
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:07.070
  • he's death?
  • 00:21:07.070 --> 00:21:08.140
  • When he dies, he will bring,
  • 00:21:08.140 --> 00:21:10.020
  • like an arrow.
  • 00:21:10.020 --> 00:21:11.170
  • His death will bring.
  • 00:21:11.170 --> 00:21:12.200
  • What does it mean?
  • 00:21:12.200 --> 00:21:13.180
  • What does it mean, Lord?"
  • 00:21:13.180 --> 00:21:16.010
  • Then, as the boy grew up,
  • 00:21:16.010 --> 00:21:17.000
  • he noticed that God
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:19.090
  • kept the boy strong and healthy,
  • 00:21:19.090 --> 00:21:21.260
  • and the boy lived,
  • 00:21:21.260 --> 00:21:22.250
  • and live, and lived.
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:24.240
  • And Enoch--the Bible says
  • 00:21:24.240 --> 00:21:25.180
  • Enoch had a revelation.
  • 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:27.000
  • By the way, when he was born,
  • 00:21:27.000 --> 00:21:28.170
  • he had the revelation already,
  • 00:21:28.170 --> 00:21:30.050
  • because the Bible says,
  • 00:21:30.050 --> 00:21:30.250
  • "After Methuselah was born,
  • 00:21:30.250 --> 00:21:32.080
  • Enoch walked with God."
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:35.240
  • So, this revelation
  • 00:21:35.240 --> 00:21:36.170
  • of the end times
  • 00:21:36.170 --> 00:21:37.140
  • will cause people
  • 00:21:37.140 --> 00:21:38.080
  • to walk with God.
  • 00:21:38.080 --> 00:21:40.030
  • And his name means what?
  • 00:21:40.030 --> 00:21:41.240
  • When he dies, it will come.
  • 00:21:41.240 --> 00:21:42.270
  • That means the moment
  • 00:21:42.270 --> 00:21:44.040
  • this boy dies, the judgment,
  • 00:21:44.120 --> 00:21:47.120
  • the flood will come.
  • 00:21:47.120 --> 00:21:50.030
  • And they watched, and the news
  • 00:21:50.030 --> 00:21:51.100
  • was spread far and wide,
  • 00:21:51.100 --> 00:21:53.040
  • "Watch this boy."
  • 00:21:53.040 --> 00:21:53.250
  • Every time he has a sneeze
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:54.190
  • and all that,
  • 00:21:54.190 --> 00:21:55.130
  • all the neighbors come running
  • 00:21:55.130 --> 00:21:56.130
  • with their handkerchief
  • 00:21:56.130 --> 00:21:58.150
  • and their chicken soup.
  • 00:21:58.150 --> 00:22:00.110
  • And every family had their own
  • 00:22:00.110 --> 00:22:01.140
  • chicken soup.
  • 00:22:01.140 --> 00:22:03.220
  • Every time!
  • 00:22:03.220 --> 00:22:05.020
  • You know, the boy--they would
  • 00:22:05.020 --> 00:22:05.240
  • help the boy up.
  • 00:22:05.240 --> 00:22:06.150
  • I mean, they don't want to see
  • 00:22:06.150 --> 00:22:07.190
  • him die.
  • 00:22:07.190 --> 00:22:08.290
  • And he became the longest
  • 00:22:09.150 --> 00:22:12.150
  • living man to record on earth.
  • 00:22:14.270 --> 00:22:17.270
  • He lived longer than Adam.
  • 00:22:17.270 --> 00:22:20.270
  • Methuselah lived 969 years.
  • 00:22:20.270 --> 00:22:23.190
  • Why?
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:25.120
  • "Not willing any should perish
  • 00:22:25.120 --> 00:22:26.270
  • but that all should come
  • 00:22:26.270 --> 00:22:28.070
  • to repentance."
  • 00:22:28.070 --> 00:22:29.290
  • That's the heart of God, people.
  • 00:22:29.290 --> 00:22:32.060
  • That's the heart of God.
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:34.060
  • God says,
  • 00:22:34.060 --> 00:22:34.260
  • "Yeah, it's gonna happen.
  • 00:22:34.260 --> 00:22:35.210
  • Yes, yes, the iniquity is full.
  • 00:22:35.210 --> 00:22:37.230
  • It's gonna happen.
  • 00:22:37.230 --> 00:22:38.160
  • Your boy will be called,
  • 00:22:38.160 --> 00:22:39.110
  • 'When he dies, it will come.'"
  • 00:22:39.110 --> 00:22:41.060
  • Then God waited.
  • 00:22:41.060 --> 00:22:42.280
  • What a heart.
  • 00:22:42.280 --> 00:22:44.000
