  • - Leviticus 16:8,
  • 00:00:19.180 --> 00:00:22.180
  • "Then Aaron shall cast lots
  • 00:00:22.180 --> 00:00:23.290
  • for two goats,
  • 00:00:23.290 --> 00:00:24.250
  • one lot for the Lord
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:26.110
  • and the other
  • 00:00:26.110 --> 00:00:27.020
  • for the scapegoat."
  • 00:00:27.020 --> 00:00:28.240
  • I'll stop there for the sake
  • 00:00:28.240 --> 00:00:31.200
  • of time and then go over to
  • 00:00:31.200 --> 00:00:33.240
  • Verse 21.
  • 00:00:33.240 --> 00:00:34.260
  • "And Aaron shall lay hands
  • 00:00:34.260 --> 00:00:35.270
  • on the head of the live goat."
  • 00:00:35.270 --> 00:00:38.100
  • Everybody say "live goat."
  • 00:00:39.100 --> 00:00:42.100
  • "And confess over it
  • 00:00:42.100 --> 00:00:43.160
  • the inequities
  • 00:00:43.160 --> 00:00:44.080
  • of the children of Israel,
  • 00:00:44.080 --> 00:00:45.100
  • and all the transgressions
  • 00:00:45.100 --> 00:00:46.090
  • concerning their sins,
  • 00:00:46.090 --> 00:00:48.120
  • putting them on the head
  • 00:00:48.120 --> 00:00:49.030
  • of the goat,
  • 00:00:49.030 --> 00:00:49.260
  • and shall send it away
  • 00:00:49.260 --> 00:00:51.260
  • into the wilderness by the hand
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:53.050
  • of a fit man."
  • 00:00:53.050 --> 00:00:56.010
  • The King James says,
  • 00:00:56.010 --> 00:00:57.160
  • "a fit man", or the translation
  • 00:00:57.160 --> 00:00:59.000
  • I was reading says, "suitable".
  • 00:00:59.000 --> 00:01:01.200
  • I like the wording of
  • 00:01:01.200 --> 00:01:03.100
  • the King James, "a fit man".
  • 00:01:04.000 --> 00:01:07.000
  • The fitness industry
  • 00:01:07.000 --> 00:01:09.040
  • is a 27 billion dollar industry.
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:11.200
  • I shared this little information
  • 00:01:11.250 --> 00:01:14.250
  • during the fast,
  • 00:01:14.250 --> 00:01:16.010
  • but I want to now apply it
  • 00:01:16.010 --> 00:01:17.210
  • to a message,
  • 00:01:17.210 --> 00:01:18.160
  • so lean in for a moment,
  • 00:01:18.160 --> 00:01:19.220
  • but 80% of those who join
  • 00:01:19.220 --> 00:01:21.100
  • at the beginning
  • 00:01:21.100 --> 00:01:22.070
  • of the new year,
  • 00:01:22.070 --> 00:01:23.050
  • a fitness center, will quit.
  • 00:01:23.050 --> 00:01:25.060
  • By the second week of February,
  • 00:01:25.060 --> 00:01:27.060
  • they'll drop out.
  • 00:01:27.060 --> 00:01:29.100
  • Fitness centers sell memberships
  • 00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:31.100
  • on the expectation...this is
  • 00:01:31.100 --> 00:01:33.240
  • pretty remarkable,
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:34.270
  • that only 18% will continue
  • 00:01:34.270 --> 00:01:36.060
  • to use them beyond February.
  • 00:01:36.060 --> 00:01:38.010
  • And, if everybody showed up
  • 00:01:38.010 --> 00:01:39.240
  • who has memberships,
  • 00:01:39.240 --> 00:01:41.050
  • they would not be able
  • 00:01:41.050 --> 00:01:42.270
  • to contain the people,
  • 00:01:42.270 --> 00:01:44.190
  • but they know,
  • 00:01:44.190 --> 00:01:45.090
  • they just know statistically,
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:47.060
  • people get excited about
  • 00:01:47.060 --> 00:01:48.180
  • the idea of being fit,
  • 00:01:48.180 --> 00:01:50.050
  • but it just doesn't last.
  • 00:01:50.170 --> 00:01:53.170
  • Only 1% last a year
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:55.250
  • in a fitness center.
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:58.070
  • Only 1 in 5 will go longer
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:02:00.080
  • than a month.
  • 00:02:00.080 --> 00:02:01.210
  • So you buy it,
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:02.240
  • and you sign up,
  • 00:02:02.240 --> 00:02:04.170
  • and you're in,
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:07.080
  • and you're excited
  • 00:02:07.080 --> 00:02:08.020
  • for a max of about 3 to 4 weeks.
  • 00:02:08.210 --> 00:02:11.210
  • Only 18% will use
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:12.240
  • that fitness membership
  • 00:02:12.240 --> 00:02:14.170
  • more than a couple of months,
  • 00:02:14.170 --> 00:02:17.000
  • and then they just fall away.
  • 00:02:17.000 --> 00:02:18.120
  • It's a good idea,
  • 00:02:18.120 --> 00:02:20.040
  • we think to be a fit man,
  • 00:02:20.040 --> 00:02:21.210
  • but we lack the discipline.
  • 00:02:22.230 --> 00:02:25.230
  • In this Scripture,
  • 00:02:25.230 --> 00:02:27.140
  • something amazing
  • 00:02:27.140 --> 00:02:28.140
  • is taking place.
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:29.290
  • There is a search going on
  • 00:02:29.290 --> 00:02:31.200
  • for a fit or suitable man
  • 00:02:32.080 --> 00:02:35.080
  • for a certain task
  • 00:02:35.080 --> 00:02:35.290
  • that is critically,
  • 00:02:35.290 --> 00:02:36.280
  • critically important.
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:38.090
  • It means blessing or curse.
  • 00:02:38.090 --> 00:02:40.200
  • It means life or death.
  • 00:02:40.200 --> 00:02:43.030
  • It means incredible good things
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:46.210
  • happening to families,
  • 00:02:46.210 --> 00:02:49.170
  • or bad, bad things happening
  • 00:02:49.170 --> 00:02:52.080
  • to families
  • 00:02:52.080 --> 00:02:53.010
  • under the old covenant.
  • 00:02:53.010 --> 00:02:54.170
  • It's the Day of Atonement.
  • 00:02:54.170 --> 00:02:56.150
  • Atonement means to appease,
  • 00:02:56.150 --> 00:02:59.110
  • to forgive, to pardon,
  • 00:02:59.110 --> 00:03:00.250
  • to purge, to cancel out.
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:03.050
  • "At-one-ment" is how atonement
  • 00:03:03.050 --> 00:03:05.100
  • is spelled, that somehow
  • 00:03:05.100 --> 00:03:06.280
  • there's something
  • 00:03:06.280 --> 00:03:08.200
  • that's gonna be done on this day
  • 00:03:08.200 --> 00:03:10.010
  • that will make people
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:11.060
  • who are far from God
  • 00:03:11.060 --> 00:03:12.150
  • "at-one-ment" with God again,
  • 00:03:13.190 --> 00:03:16.190
  • get God back to man.
  • 00:03:16.190 --> 00:03:19.070
  • So God designed
  • 00:03:19.070 --> 00:03:21.110
  • an Old Testament system
  • 00:03:21.110 --> 00:03:22.270
  • that is a shadow
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:24.200
  • of something great to come
  • 00:03:24.200 --> 00:03:26.030
  • that we celebrate this morning.
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:27.290
  • He said,
  • 00:03:27.290 --> 00:03:29.060
  • you are to take two goats.
  • 00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:30.240
  • The high priest
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:31.110
  • is to take two goats
  • 00:03:31.110 --> 00:03:32.280
  • on the Day of Atonement,
  • 00:03:32.280 --> 00:03:34.060
  • and offer as a sin offering.
  • 00:03:34.070 --> 00:03:37.070
  • It took two goats.
  • 00:03:37.070 --> 00:03:39.010
  • One was not sufficient.
  • 00:03:39.010 --> 00:03:40.230
  • It was one offering,
  • 00:03:40.230 --> 00:03:42.210
  • but it required two goats,
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:45.050
  • and I'm gonna tell you why.
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:46.050
  • The first goat was called
  • 00:03:46.050 --> 00:03:48.140
  • the Lord's goat.
  • 00:03:48.140 --> 00:03:49.180
  • Everybody say,
  • 00:03:49.180 --> 00:03:50.130
  • "the Lord's goat."
  • 00:03:50.130 --> 00:03:52.040
  • The reason it was called
  • 00:03:52.040 --> 00:03:53.100
  • the Lord's goat
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:54.210
  • is it was offered
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:56.110
  • as a sacrifice for sin.
  • 00:03:56.110 --> 00:03:58.180
  • It had to meet the price
  • 00:03:58.180 --> 00:04:01.180
  • of the justice of God,
  • 00:04:01.180 --> 00:04:03.070
  • and God had said the soul
  • 00:04:03.070 --> 00:04:04.280
  • that sins must die.
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:06.260
  • Secondly, without
  • 00:04:06.260 --> 00:04:08.240
  • the shedding of blood
  • 00:04:08.240 --> 00:04:09.230
  • there is no remission of sin,
  • 00:04:09.230 --> 00:04:11.110
  • so the first goat had to die.
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:13.240
  • It had to die.
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:15.150
  • Its blood had to be shed,
  • 00:04:15.150 --> 00:04:17.280
  • and so they would kill it,
  • 00:04:17.280 --> 00:04:18.230
  • and it represented taking
  • 00:04:19.090 --> 00:04:22.090
  • an offering, sin offering,
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:24.040
  • and forgiveness of sin
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:26.010
  • for every sin
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:27.090
  • that was committed.
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:28.210
  • Then there was the second goat,
  • 00:04:28.210 --> 00:04:30.140
  • that was called the scapegoat,
  • 00:04:30.140 --> 00:04:32.020
  • S-C-A-P-E.
  • 00:04:32.020 --> 00:04:34.040
  • We would call it the E-scape,
  • 00:04:34.040 --> 00:04:36.210
  • the escape goat,
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:39.020
  • and this is an
  • 00:04:39.020 --> 00:04:40.060
  • interesting scene,
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:41.050
  • and I want you to picture it
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:42.010
  • in your mind.
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:43.050
  • The high priest would get
  • 00:04:43.050 --> 00:04:44.270
  • with every family,
  • 00:04:44.270 --> 00:04:46.210
  • and it would take sometimes
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:47.210
  • weeks and weeks and months
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:48.270
  • leading up to the big
  • 00:04:48.270 --> 00:04:50.250
  • Day of Atonement,
  • 00:04:50.250 --> 00:04:51.240
  • when the animal,
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:52.290
  • one would die
  • 00:04:52.290 --> 00:04:53.260
  • and one would be set free.
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:55.180
  • And what he would do with
  • 00:04:55.180 --> 00:04:57.080
  • the living goat
  • 00:04:57.080 --> 00:04:59.000
  • is the families would come,
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:00.280
  • one by one, and present themself
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:02.160
  • to the high priest,
  • 00:05:02.160 --> 00:05:04.020
  • and they would confess out loud
  • 00:05:04.020 --> 00:05:05.080
  • every sin they had committed
  • 00:05:05.080 --> 00:05:07.130
  • over the past 12 months -
  • 00:05:07.140 --> 00:05:10.140
  • the children, the parents,
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:12.180
  • the grandparents.
  • 00:05:12.180 --> 00:05:13.250
  • You can imagine
  • 00:05:13.250 --> 00:05:15.260
  • this confession service,
  • 00:05:15.260 --> 00:05:17.190
  • where all of the people
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:18.200
  • were standing around.
  • 00:05:18.200 --> 00:05:21.140
  • It produced a certain
  • 00:05:21.140 --> 00:05:22.110
  • amount of anxiety
  • 00:05:22.110 --> 00:05:23.070
  • and I'm sure embarrassment
  • 00:05:23.070 --> 00:05:23.270
  • among the people.
  • 00:05:23.270 --> 00:05:25.160
  • Imagine how husbands
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:27.090
  • were looking at wives.
  • 00:05:27.090 --> 00:05:29.100
  • You did what?
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:30.170
  • And wives were looking
  • 00:05:30.170 --> 00:05:31.210
  • at husbands,
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:32.190
  • and takin' wedding bands off,
  • 00:05:32.190 --> 00:05:34.120
  • and children were looking
  • 00:05:34.120 --> 00:05:36.230
  • at their parents.
  • 00:05:36.230 --> 00:05:37.130
  • You did what?
  • 00:05:37.130 --> 00:05:38.240
  • What kind of parents are you?
  • 00:05:38.240 --> 00:05:41.040
  • And then,
  • 00:05:41.040 --> 00:05:41.280
  • children were confessing out
  • 00:05:41.280 --> 00:05:42.200
  • loud while that was happening.
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:43.240
  • Why was that necessary?
  • 00:05:43.240 --> 00:05:44.280
  • Let's say this is the goat,
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:46.140
  • the escape goat.
  • 00:05:46.140 --> 00:05:48.150
  • The high priest would lay
  • 00:05:48.150 --> 00:05:49.180
  • his hands on the head
  • 00:05:49.180 --> 00:05:51.020
  • of that goat,
  • 00:05:51.020 --> 00:05:52.050
  • transferring everything
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:54.060
  • they were confessing
  • 00:05:54.060 --> 00:05:55.040
  • out of their mouth,
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:56.070
  • through his hands,
  • 00:05:56.070 --> 00:05:57.170
  • into that goat.
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:05:59.120
  • That goat was taking every sin
  • 00:05:59.120 --> 00:06:01.010
  • that family had committed,
  • 00:06:01.060 --> 00:06:04.060
  • and they would stand there
  • 00:06:04.060 --> 00:06:05.270
  • until they had
  • 00:06:05.270 --> 00:06:06.180
  • completely confessed to him
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:08.040
  • every sin they could think of.
  • 00:06:08.100 --> 00:06:11.100
  • And I'm sure that there
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:12.230
  • were tears,
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:14.070
  • and I'm sure that there
  • 00:06:14.070 --> 00:06:15.180
  • were sorrows, and I'm sure
  • 00:06:15.180 --> 00:06:16.240
  • that there was weeping.
  • 00:06:16.240 --> 00:06:18.150
  • The priest would lay his hands
  • 00:06:18.150 --> 00:06:19.270
  • on that goat,
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.050
  • transferring the sins
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:22.160
  • into that goat,
  • 00:06:22.160 --> 00:06:24.150
  • and then the goat
  • 00:06:24.150 --> 00:06:25.170
  • would be taken by a fit man -
  • 00:06:25.170 --> 00:06:28.110
  • not just any man,
  • 00:06:28.110 --> 00:06:29.210
  • he had to be a fit man,
  • 00:06:29.210 --> 00:06:31.010
  • because of the task.
  • 00:06:31.010 --> 00:06:33.000
  • The task was very, very...not
  • 00:06:35.090 --> 00:06:38.090
  • any man would do.
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:39.060
  • Not any man could handle it.
  • 00:06:39.060 --> 00:06:40.120
  • Not any man could just survive
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:41.180
  • the wilderness experience,
  • 00:06:41.180 --> 00:06:43.270
  • 'cause he had to take it
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:46.000
  • so far away that it could never
  • 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:47.140
  • find its way back.
  • 00:06:47.140 --> 00:06:49.250
  • It would bring
  • 00:06:49.250 --> 00:06:51.030
  • a tremendous curse
  • 00:06:51.030 --> 00:06:52.200
  • on the people if the goat
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:54.260
  • that all of the sins of the camp
  • 00:06:54.260 --> 00:06:56.100
  • had been transferred
  • 00:06:56.100 --> 00:06:57.220
  • onto somehow came back.
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:06:59.140
  • It would be the tragedy
  • 00:06:59.140 --> 00:07:00.120
  • of tragedies.
  • 00:07:00.120 --> 00:07:01.190
  • So, catch it.
  • 00:07:01.190 --> 00:07:03.120
  • The first goat had to shed
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:04.180
  • its blood and die,
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:06.220
  • and it was used
  • 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:08.060
  • for forgiveness of sin,
  • 00:07:08.060 --> 00:07:09.150
  • but the second goat was used
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:11.190
  • for the removal of sin,
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:13.110
  • freedom from sin,
  • 00:07:13.110 --> 00:07:15.060
  • the release from sin,
  • 00:07:15.060 --> 00:07:16.230
  • separation from sin.
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:19.030
  • It was taken away.
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:21.160
  • Now, I just need to preach
  • 00:07:21.160 --> 00:07:22.100
  • that it's not enough
  • 00:07:22.100 --> 00:07:23.160
  • to come to Jesus
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:24.140
  • and get your sins forgiven.
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:26.210
  • This is why the death
  • 00:07:26.210 --> 00:07:28.270
  • and resurrection of Jesus Christ
  • 00:07:28.270 --> 00:07:30.230
  • is so powerful,
  • 00:07:30.230 --> 00:07:32.010
  • because it took two animals -
  • 00:07:32.010 --> 00:07:33.280
  • one had to die,
  • 00:07:33.280 --> 00:07:34.280
  • and one had to live.
  • 00:07:34.280 --> 00:07:36.160
  • You had to have the blood
  • 00:07:36.160 --> 00:07:37.270
  • of the sacrificer
  • 00:07:37.270 --> 00:07:39.020
  • and you had to have the life
  • 00:07:39.020 --> 00:07:40.110
  • of the liberator
  • 00:07:40.110 --> 00:07:41.230
  • to take the sin away.
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:43.120
  • And look at my Jesus.
  • 00:07:43.120 --> 00:07:44.270
  • He dies as the sacrificer,
  • 00:07:44.270 --> 00:07:47.020
  • but three days later
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:48.110
  • He rises back to life
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:50.170
  • as the liberator and says,
  • 00:07:50.170 --> 00:07:51.240
  • I can take you.
  • 00:07:51.240 --> 00:07:54.130
  • I can take this out
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:07:55.100
  • of your life!
  • 00:07:55.100 --> 00:07:56.090
  • You don't have to be bound
  • 00:07:56.090 --> 00:07:57.230
  • to sin.
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:07:58.230
  • I'm glad you got
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:07:59.290
  • forgiveness of sin,
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:00.290
  • but you can be free
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:02.030
  • from addiction,
  • 00:08:02.210 --> 00:08:05.210
  • free from condemnation,
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:07.040
  • free from shame and guilt,
  • 00:08:07.040 --> 00:08:08.140
  • free from alcoholism!
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:11.080
  • Somebody's watching me
  • 00:08:11.080 --> 00:08:13.090
  • by television,
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:14.100
  • and you've almost wanted
  • 00:08:14.100 --> 00:08:15.140
  • to put a gun to your brain
  • 00:08:15.140 --> 00:08:16.270
  • because the enemy's told you
  • 00:08:16.270 --> 00:08:17.290
  • you can never be free!
  • 00:08:17.290 --> 00:08:19.240
  • But, Jesus cannot only forgive
  • 00:08:19.240 --> 00:08:21.150
  • your sin, he whom the Son
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:23.040
  • sets free is free indeed!
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:25.210
  • He can liberate you from sin!
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:28.070
  • Somebody give God praise
  • 00:08:28.070 --> 00:08:29.080
  • if you believe it's the truth!
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:36.050
  • Let me give you an illustration
  • 00:08:36.050 --> 00:08:37.050
  • of what I'm talkin' about.
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:38.220
  • See, I could back up in the
  • 00:08:38.220 --> 00:08:40.020
  • parking lot and I could hit
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:41.110
  • your car and mess your car up,
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:43.010
  • and you could say to me,
  • 00:08:43.010 --> 00:08:45.200
  • if you were a nice person,
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:47.110
  • Pastor, it's okay.
  • 00:08:48.050 --> 00:08:51.050
  • I forgive you.
  • 00:08:51.050 --> 00:08:52.090
  • I have a bad dent in my fender,
  • 00:08:52.090 --> 00:08:54.210
  • but I forgive you.
  • 00:08:54.210 --> 00:08:56.250
  • You don't have to pay for it.
  • 00:08:56.250 --> 00:08:57.290
  • You are forgiven.
  • 00:08:57.290 --> 00:08:59.090
  • That's what the first goat did.
  • 00:08:59.090 --> 00:09:01.060
  • But, the dent is still there.
  • 00:09:01.190 --> 00:09:04.190
  • But if there was some way
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:06.150
  • that I could not only be
  • 00:09:06.150 --> 00:09:08.050
  • forgiven of it, but somehow
  • 00:09:08.050 --> 00:09:10.180
  • the dent could be taken out
  • 00:09:10.180 --> 00:09:12.140
  • and taken away,
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:13.290
  • how awesome would that be?
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:15.260
  • This is what Jesus did for you
  • 00:09:15.260 --> 00:09:17.220
  • when He died
  • 00:09:17.220 --> 00:09:18.240
  • and rose from the grave.
  • 00:09:18.240 --> 00:09:20.140
  • When you get to heaven,
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:21.160
  • they'll open the books
  • 00:09:21.160 --> 00:09:22.280
  • and there will be no proof,
  • 00:09:22.280 --> 00:09:24.280
  • nothing there
  • 00:09:24.280 --> 00:09:26.210
  • but the blood of Jesus
  • 00:09:26.210 --> 00:09:28.100
  • that has cleansed you
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:29.190
  • from all your sins,
  • 00:09:29.220 --> 00:09:32.220
  • and the proof is gone!
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:34.290
  • The dent is gone!
  • 00:09:39.010 --> 00:09:42.010
  • The first goat
  • 00:09:42.090 --> 00:09:45.090
  • was to forgive you for it.
  • 00:09:45.090 --> 00:09:47.010
  • The second goat
  • 00:09:47.010 --> 00:09:48.170
  • was to separate you from it!
  • 00:09:49.030 --> 00:09:52.030
  • I'm glad you gave your heart
  • 00:09:52.030 --> 00:09:53.270
  • to the Lord,
  • 00:09:53.270 --> 00:09:55.140
  • but if you went right back
  • 00:09:55.140 --> 00:09:57.000
  • to what you were doin',
  • 00:09:57.000 --> 00:09:58.140
  • livin' like you were livin',
  • 00:09:58.140 --> 00:09:59.160
  • you have not experienced
  • 00:09:59.160 --> 00:10:01.080
  • the Savior in His fullness.
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:03.190
  • When you really get saved,
  • 00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:05.020
  • there is separation.
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:06.190
  • There are things
  • 00:10:06.190 --> 00:10:07.200
  • that leave your life.
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.080
  • If you didn't lose nothin',
  • 00:10:09.080 --> 00:10:12.010
  • you didn't get nothin'.
  • 00:10:12.010 --> 00:10:13.190
  • If you didn't leave nothin',
  • 00:10:13.190 --> 00:10:14.230
  • you didn't get nothin'.
  • 00:10:14.230 --> 00:10:17.060
  • You don't get saved
  • 00:10:17.060 --> 00:10:19.020
  • to stay in the filth
  • 00:10:19.020 --> 00:10:21.080
  • that you were rescued out of.
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:23.280
  • Separation matters!
  • 00:10:25.010 --> 00:10:28.010
  • And so, there's a search,
  • 00:10:29.030 --> 00:10:32.030
  • trying to find a fit man
  • 00:10:32.030 --> 00:10:33.110
  • who can escort the goat
  • 00:10:33.110 --> 00:10:36.030
  • so far into the wilderness,
  • 00:10:36.030 --> 00:10:38.110
  • a fit man who nobody...we're
  • 00:10:42.150 --> 00:10:45.150
  • never told the name
  • 00:10:45.150 --> 00:10:47.060
  • of a fit man,
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:48.010
  • even though this ceremony
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:49.000
  • happened once a year.
  • 00:10:49.000 --> 00:10:50.120
  • So, you have to decide
  • 00:10:50.120 --> 00:10:52.030
  • if you're gonna be fit
  • 00:10:52.030 --> 00:10:53.110
  • or famous.
  • 00:10:53.110 --> 00:10:54.160
  • Sometimes you can't be famous
  • 00:10:54.160 --> 00:10:56.150
  • and popular and be a fit man.
  • 00:10:56.150 --> 00:10:58.250
  • Sometimes you can't be
  • 00:10:58.250 --> 00:10:59.160
  • a fit father and be famous
  • 00:10:59.160 --> 00:11:01.040
  • with your kids.
  • 00:11:01.040 --> 00:11:02.130
  • 'Cause sometimes,
  • 00:11:02.130 --> 00:11:04.120
  • you know a higher good
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:06.090
  • and because you know
  • 00:11:06.090 --> 00:11:07.050
  • a higher good that their youth
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:08.240
  • and inexperience doesn't know,
  • 00:11:08.240 --> 00:11:10.140
  • you have to be willing
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:11.260
  • to be perceived as a bad father,
  • 00:11:11.260 --> 00:11:14.000
  • but really you're bein'
  • 00:11:14.000 --> 00:11:15.260
  • a good father,
  • 00:11:15.260 --> 00:11:17.110
  • because you know
  • 00:11:17.110 --> 00:11:18.030
  • the higher good.
  • 00:11:18.030 --> 00:11:19.090
  • And sometimes God is perceived
  • 00:11:19.090 --> 00:11:20.050
  • as being a bad God,
  • 00:11:20.050 --> 00:11:21.170
  • but He who knows everything
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:24.200
  • sees a higher good
  • 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:25.200
  • He's working,
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:26.240
  • and even when it looks like
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:28.100
  • He's a bad God,
  • 00:11:28.100 --> 00:11:29.240
  • He's really a good God,
  • 00:11:29.240 --> 00:11:31.120
  • 'cause He knows where
  • 00:11:31.120 --> 00:11:32.010
  • everything's gonna end up
  • 00:11:32.010 --> 00:11:33.010
  • in the end.
  • 00:11:35.290 --> 00:11:38.290
  • And so, they're looking.
  • 00:11:38.290 --> 00:11:41.200
  • We've got to find a fit man,
  • 00:11:43.010 --> 00:11:46.010
  • not a famous man, not a player.
  • 00:11:48.090 --> 00:11:51.090
  • We need a fit man.
  • 00:11:51.090 --> 00:11:52.290
  • We need a man who is fit.
  • 00:11:55.030 --> 00:11:58.030
  • He won't get any praise.
  • 00:11:58.030 --> 00:11:59.190
  • He won't get any honor.
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:02.100
  • His name will never
  • 00:12:02.100 --> 00:12:03.180
  • be mentioned,
  • 00:12:03.180 --> 00:12:04.100
  • but he will be fit.
  • 00:12:04.100 --> 00:12:06.160
  • The word "fit" means suited
  • 00:12:06.160 --> 00:12:08.240
  • for the task, proper and decent,
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:12.100
  • capable of surviving
  • 00:12:12.100 --> 00:12:13.070
  • the environment,
  • 00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:14.240
  • ready and willing to sacrifice
  • 00:12:14.240 --> 00:12:16.130
  • morally, mentally,
  • 00:12:16.130 --> 00:12:18.060
  • physically sound.
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:20.140
  • Headed into the wilderness
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:21.240
  • with a goat
  • 00:12:21.240 --> 00:12:22.200
  • that carried all the sins
  • 00:12:22.200 --> 00:12:24.040
  • of the people,
  • 00:12:24.040 --> 00:12:25.290
  • and the whole thing
  • 00:12:25.290 --> 00:12:26.290
  • was upon him to get that goat
  • 00:12:26.290 --> 00:12:28.280
  • so lost so that it could never,
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:31.210
  • with its instinct,
  • 00:12:31.210 --> 00:12:33.080
  • find its way back to where
  • 00:12:33.080 --> 00:12:36.030
  • it had been so well
  • 00:12:36.030 --> 00:12:37.000
  • taken care of.
  • 00:12:37.000 --> 00:12:37.260
  • He's going into a lonely land.
  • 00:12:37.270 --> 00:12:40.270
  • He's not gonna be famous,
  • 00:12:40.270 --> 00:12:42.250
  • he's gonna be lonely.
  • 00:12:42.250 --> 00:12:44.150
  • He's going into a land
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:46.010
  • of thirst, and hunger,
  • 00:12:46.010 --> 00:12:48.130
  • and fatigue.
  • 00:12:48.130 --> 00:12:49.080
  • It's wearisome.
  • 00:12:49.080 --> 00:12:50.090
  • It's a wilderness experience,
  • 00:12:50.180 --> 00:12:53.180
  • and God says that's the kind
  • 00:12:53.180 --> 00:12:54.240
  • of man that I need.
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:56.120
  • I don't need a famous man.
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:12:57.230
  • I don't need any man.
  • 00:12:57.230 --> 00:12:58.230
  • Any man won't do.
  • 00:12:58.230 --> 00:13:00.040
  • I've gotta have some fit men.
  • 00:13:00.040 --> 00:13:02.180
  • We need some fit men.
  • 00:13:02.180 --> 00:13:04.020
  • We need some fit fathers.
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:05.100
  • We need some fit mothers.
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:06.220
  • We need some fit preachers.
  • 00:13:06.220 --> 00:13:08.160
  • We need some fit people
  • 00:13:08.160 --> 00:13:10.010
  • who are willing to walk
  • 00:13:10.010 --> 00:13:11.280
  • through the wilderness
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:13.030
  • and willing to do things
  • 00:13:13.030 --> 00:13:14.000
  • that other people
  • 00:13:14.000 --> 00:13:14.270
  • aren't willing to do,
  • 00:13:14.270 --> 00:13:16.030
  • because they want
  • 00:13:16.030 --> 00:13:17.080
  • to please the Lord.
  • 00:13:17.080 --> 00:13:19.210
  • A man who would find his way
  • 00:13:19.210 --> 00:13:21.100
  • back home after he got
  • 00:13:21.100 --> 00:13:22.220
  • the goat lost,
  • 00:13:22.220 --> 00:13:23.240
  • because if you're not careful,
  • 00:13:23.240 --> 00:13:26.130
  • it's possible to lose yourself
  • 00:13:26.130 --> 00:13:27.260
  • while you're tryin'
  • 00:13:27.260 --> 00:13:28.290
  • to help somebody else.
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:30.150
  • He's got to bear the goat
  • 00:13:30.150 --> 00:13:32.260
  • and take it so far away,
  • 00:13:32.260 --> 00:13:34.140
  • and while you're tryin' to help
  • 00:13:34.140 --> 00:13:35.200
  • everybody else with their stuff,
  • 00:13:35.200 --> 00:13:36.180
  • you're losing yourself.
  • 00:13:36.180 --> 00:13:39.160
  • A man who could get
  • 00:13:39.160 --> 00:13:41.060
  • the sin-bearing goat lost
  • 00:13:41.060 --> 00:13:43.130
  • without getting himself lost
  • 00:13:43.130 --> 00:13:44.200
  • in the process.
  • 00:13:44.200 --> 00:13:45.290
  • How important!
  • 00:13:46.070 --> 00:13:49.070
  • The greatest horror of horrors
  • 00:13:49.070 --> 00:13:51.030
  • would be if that goat,
  • 00:13:51.030 --> 00:13:53.120
  • or that sin,
  • 00:13:53.120 --> 00:13:54.260
  • made its way back
  • 00:13:54.260 --> 00:13:55.170
  • to that family, to that camp.
  • 00:13:55.170 --> 00:13:57.190
  • The chief concern for a fit man
  • 00:13:57.190 --> 00:14:00.170
  • was his family,
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:02.290
  • was his children,
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:04.180
  • was his home,
  • 00:14:04.180 --> 00:14:06.140
  • was his people.
  • 00:14:06.140 --> 00:14:08.170
  • All of the blood of atonement
  • 00:14:08.170 --> 00:14:10.060
  • would be wasted
  • 00:14:10.060 --> 00:14:11.120
  • if it comes back.
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:13.130
  • And so many times we ask God
  • 00:14:13.130 --> 00:14:14.120
  • for forgiveness of sin,
  • 00:14:14.120 --> 00:14:16.050
  • and His shed blood
  • 00:14:16.050 --> 00:14:17.160
  • and death has paid for
  • 00:14:17.160 --> 00:14:18.230
  • that forgiveness of sin,
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:20.040
  • but then there comes this thing
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:21.110
  • of being filled enough
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:23.130
  • with the Holy Spirit
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:24.180
  • that we get liberated from sin
  • 00:14:24.180 --> 00:14:26.170
  • and we put sin
  • 00:14:26.170 --> 00:14:27.150
  • a separate way from us.
  • 00:14:27.150 --> 00:14:30.090
  • This little thing
  • 00:14:30.090 --> 00:14:31.110
  • of just prayin' a prayer
  • 00:14:31.110 --> 00:14:33.020
  • and then living
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:34.100
  • any way you want to - folks,
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:35.090
  • that is not Bible salvation.
  • 00:14:35.150 --> 00:14:38.150
  • Salvation requires separation
  • 00:14:38.150 --> 00:14:40.230
  • from inequity, and wickedness,
  • 00:14:40.230 --> 00:14:42.190
  • and evil, and known sin
  • 00:14:42.190 --> 00:14:45.050
  • The fit man really needed
  • 00:14:52.030 --> 00:14:54.120
  • to love God.
  • 00:14:54.120 --> 00:14:55.140
  • He had to be trusted.
  • 00:14:55.220 --> 00:14:58.220
  • He didn't need to be unfit,
  • 00:14:58.220 --> 00:15:00.090
  • meaning not morally
  • 00:15:00.090 --> 00:15:02.220
  • and mentally suitable,
  • 00:15:02.220 --> 00:15:04.000
  • lacking good judgment,
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:06.070
  • couldn't stand the pressure
  • 00:15:06.070 --> 00:15:08.120
  • of a hostile environment.
  • 00:15:08.120 --> 00:15:10.110
  • If you're a fit man,
  • 00:15:10.110 --> 00:15:11.130
  • you can get in
  • 00:15:11.130 --> 00:15:12.010
  • a hostile environment,
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:13.110
  • but it doesn't change
  • 00:15:13.110 --> 00:15:13.290
  • who you are.
  • 00:15:13.290 --> 00:15:14.290
  • You can go to the office party
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:16.190
  • and everybody can be doin'
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:18.020
  • whatever they're doin',
  • 00:15:18.020 --> 00:15:19.020
  • and you go in there
  • 00:15:19.020 --> 00:15:19.290
  • and you do your thing
  • 00:15:19.290 --> 00:15:20.230
  • 'cause you need to do it,
  • 00:15:20.230 --> 00:15:21.230
  • but it doesn't change
  • 00:15:21.230 --> 00:15:22.290
  • who you are.
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:23.290
  • Wherever you go,
  • 00:15:23.290 --> 00:15:25.010
  • you're a fit man.
  • 00:15:26.280 --> 00:15:29.280
  • You don't want those goats
  • 00:15:29.280 --> 00:15:30.200
  • to come back,
  • 00:15:30.200 --> 00:15:31.260
  • because if they come back,
  • 00:15:31.260 --> 00:15:33.050
  • they're gonna find
  • 00:15:33.050 --> 00:15:33.280
  • your children,
  • 00:15:33.280 --> 00:15:34.230
  • and it's gonna get greater then,
  • 00:15:34.230 --> 00:15:36.140
  • and this bondage
  • 00:15:36.140 --> 00:15:37.100
  • is gonna get greater
  • 00:15:37.100 --> 00:15:38.030
  • on that house.
  • 00:15:38.030 --> 00:15:39.120
  • You don't want that stuff back.
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:41.270
  • Get the goats away
  • 00:15:43.250 --> 00:15:46.250
  • from my family was the cry
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:48.160
  • of the fit man.
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:51.070
  • Lot was an unfit man.
  • 00:15:51.070 --> 00:15:53.140
  • Lot would not separate himself
  • 00:15:53.140 --> 00:15:55.030
  • from Sodom and Gomorrah,
  • 00:15:55.030 --> 00:15:57.040
  • even though their sins
  • 00:15:57.040 --> 00:15:57.270
  • vexed him.
  • 00:15:57.270 --> 00:15:59.020
  • He would not put any distance
  • 00:15:59.020 --> 00:16:00.130
  • between he and his family
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:01.290
  • from inequity,
  • 00:16:01.290 --> 00:16:03.080
  • and the Bible
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:04.010
  • said he lost his wife
  • 00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:05.050
  • and she turned into
  • 00:16:05.050 --> 00:16:06.070
  • a pillar of salt,
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:07.010
  • lost his two children.
  • 00:16:07.010 --> 00:16:07.230
  • He fell to horrible
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:08.260
  • sexual immorality.
  • 00:16:08.260 --> 00:16:10.220
  • All of that because a man
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:12.050
  • was unfit.
  • 00:16:12.050 --> 00:16:15.020
  • And I've been preachin'
  • 00:16:15.020 --> 00:16:16.230
  • all of that to get to where I am
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:18.110
  • right now.
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:21.150
  • The tragedy
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:22.150
  • and the truth is this.
  • 00:16:22.150 --> 00:16:24.030
  • In the Old Testament,
  • 00:16:24.030 --> 00:16:25.160
  • there was never a fit man
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:27.080
  • who was strong enough
  • 00:16:27.080 --> 00:16:28.210
  • to keep that goat away
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:29.280
  • from the camp.
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:31.100
  • Every year it would come back,
  • 00:16:31.110 --> 00:16:34.110
  • or they would have to do it
  • 00:16:34.110 --> 00:16:35.180
  • all over again.
  • 00:16:35.180 --> 00:16:37.100
  • They could never
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:37.280
  • completely remove it.
  • 00:16:37.280 --> 00:16:39.110
  • All they would do is go through
  • 00:16:39.110 --> 00:16:40.160
  • the routine again,
  • 00:16:40.160 --> 00:16:42.040
  • and it would come back,
  • 00:16:42.040 --> 00:16:43.060
  • and they would send it out,
  • 00:16:43.060 --> 00:16:44.180
  • and it would come back,
  • 00:16:44.180 --> 00:16:46.070
  • and they would
  • 00:16:46.070 --> 00:16:47.010
  • send it out...once a year,
  • 00:16:47.010 --> 00:16:48.160
  • once a year, once a year.
  • 00:16:48.160 --> 00:16:50.170
  • But something begins to happen.
  • 00:16:51.220 --> 00:16:54.220
  • The Old Testament is a shadow
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:56.040
  • of better things to come,
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:57.160
  • and just as they were searching
  • 00:16:57.160 --> 00:16:59.090
  • for a fit man,
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:00.130
  • God the Father sat on the throne
  • 00:17:00.130 --> 00:17:02.200
  • and He looked down,
  • 00:17:02.200 --> 00:17:03.220
  • and He said the priests
  • 00:17:03.220 --> 00:17:05.060
  • can't fix it,
  • 00:17:05.060 --> 00:17:05.260
  • the blood of goats
  • 00:17:05.260 --> 00:17:06.210
  • and lambs can't fix it.
  • 00:17:06.210 --> 00:17:08.110
  • Hebrews said the blood
  • 00:17:08.110 --> 00:17:09.160
  • of goats and lambs,
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:11.030
  • it's not possible
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:12.060
  • that it can take away the sins
  • 00:17:12.060 --> 00:17:13.060
  • of the people.
  • 00:17:13.060 --> 00:17:14.150
  • I need me a fit man.
  • 00:17:14.150 --> 00:17:16.090
  • Wonder, can I find an angel
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:17.270
  • that's worthy?
  • 00:17:17.270 --> 00:17:18.240
  • Can He find an angel?
  • 00:17:18.240 --> 00:17:19.270
  • Can I find Abraham?
  • 00:17:19.270 --> 00:17:21.060
  • No, he lied.
  • 00:17:21.060 --> 00:17:22.010
  • Can I find David?
  • 00:17:22.010 --> 00:17:23.010
  • No, he was an adulterer.
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:24.130
  • Is there anybody
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:26.090
  • in heaven worthy?
  • 00:17:26.090 --> 00:17:27.200
  • Is there any fit men?
  • 00:17:27.200 --> 00:17:29.170
  • Then, Jeremiah
  • 00:17:29.170 --> 00:17:30.080
  • takes the telescope of prophecy
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:31.290
  • and looks down,
  • 00:17:31.290 --> 00:17:32.290
  • and he gives a prophecy.
  • 00:17:32.290 --> 00:17:34.100
  • He says, I see somethin' comin'
  • 00:17:34.100 --> 00:17:35.240
  • on the earth, and in those days,
  • 00:17:35.240 --> 00:17:37.140
  • sin shall be sought for
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:38.200
  • but not found.
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:40.240
  • He said, there's coming a day.
  • 00:17:40.240 --> 00:17:42.160
  • There's coming a day
  • 00:17:42.160 --> 00:17:43.270
  • when their sins
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:45.100
  • will be taken so far away
  • 00:17:45.100 --> 00:17:46.230
  • that it won't keep coming back,
  • 00:17:46.230 --> 00:17:48.090
  • and coming back,
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:49.230
  • and cursin' and cursin',
  • 00:17:49.230 --> 00:17:51.110
  • but there will be a fit man
  • 00:17:51.110 --> 00:17:53.060
  • who will show up on planet Earth
  • 00:17:53.060 --> 00:17:55.290
  • and he will forever remove.
  • 00:17:55.290 --> 00:17:58.290
  • David got an insight
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:00.200
  • and he said,
  • 00:18:00.200 --> 00:18:02.050
  • let me tell you what
  • 00:18:02.050 --> 00:18:02.250
  • this fit man comin' is gonna do.
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:04.200
  • He said, as far as the east
  • 00:18:04.200 --> 00:18:07.000
  • is from the west,
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:08.060
  • so far has He removed
  • 00:18:08.060 --> 00:18:09.290
  • our transgressions from us.
  • 00:18:09.290 --> 00:18:12.210
  • If he'd have said North Pole
  • 00:18:12.210 --> 00:18:13.260
  • to South Pole,
  • 00:18:13.260 --> 00:18:15.000
  • you could measure that,
  • 00:18:15.000 --> 00:18:16.020
  • but he said east to west.
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:17.140
  • There's no measuring that.
  • 00:18:17.140 --> 00:18:19.000
  • And he said,
  • 00:18:19.000 --> 00:18:20.150
  • there's somebody comin'.
  • 00:18:20.150 --> 00:18:22.110
  • I don't know His name,
  • 00:18:22.110 --> 00:18:23.030
  • I don't know who He is,
  • 00:18:23.030 --> 00:18:24.220
  • but there's gonna be such
  • 00:18:24.220 --> 00:18:25.270
  • a fit man that He's not just
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:27.030
  • gonna forgive the sin
  • 00:18:27.030 --> 00:18:28.180
  • by His death and by His blood,
  • 00:18:28.180 --> 00:18:30.100
  • but He's gonna, by His life,
  • 00:18:30.100 --> 00:18:32.170
  • His resurrection,
  • 00:18:32.170 --> 00:18:33.210
  • take the sin away,
  • 00:18:33.210 --> 00:18:36.010
  • and though men might
  • 00:18:36.010 --> 00:18:37.100
  • seek for it,
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:38.160
  • it will never be found again!
  • 00:18:38.160 --> 00:18:41.000
  • Guess who I'm preaching about?
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:42.220
  • I'm preaching about your Jesus!
  • 00:18:44.210 --> 00:18:47.210
  • He's gonna be fit,
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:49.060
  • and here's the title
  • 00:18:49.060 --> 00:18:49.280
  • of that little sermon.
  • 00:18:49.280 --> 00:18:51.020
  • I've been so excited
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:51.260
  • to give you this title -
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:52.190
  • "He's Cross Fit!"
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:58.090
  • Oh, get happy over that,
  • 00:18:58.090 --> 00:18:59.040
  • you know you...
  • 00:19:07.120 --> 00:19:10.120
  • That's my Jesus!
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:12.260
  • His name shall be called Jesus,
  • 00:19:12.260 --> 00:19:15.210
  • for He shall save His people
  • 00:19:15.240 --> 00:19:18.240
  • from their sin -
  • 00:19:18.240 --> 00:19:20.150
  • the penalty of sin,
  • 00:19:20.150 --> 00:19:21.250
  • the bondage of sin,
  • 00:19:21.250 --> 00:19:23.030
  • the addiction of sin!
  • 00:19:23.030 --> 00:19:24.260
  • He'll give 'em
  • 00:19:24.260 --> 00:19:25.280
  • the release of sin!
  • 00:19:25.280 --> 00:19:26.290
  • They'll be new creations!
  • 00:19:26.290 --> 00:19:28.240
  • The old things have passed away!
  • 00:19:28.240 --> 00:19:31.090
  • That's gone!
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:32.260
  • The old me is over,
  • 00:19:32.260 --> 00:19:35.160
  • and I am a new creation
  • 00:19:35.160 --> 00:19:37.030
  • because Jesus made me
  • 00:19:37.030 --> 00:19:38.130
  • cross fit!
  • 00:19:38.130 --> 00:19:40.100
  • I got the fit man in me,
  • 00:19:40.100 --> 00:19:42.050
  • and He makes me fit enough
  • 00:19:42.050 --> 00:19:44.280
  • to say no to the wrong
  • 00:19:44.280 --> 00:19:46.060
  • and yes to the right.
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:48.000
  • Give God a big praise
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:49.060
  • if you believe it!
  • 00:19:55.270 --> 00:19:58.270
  • It took two goats
  • 00:19:58.270 --> 00:19:59.270
  • in the Old Testament,
  • 00:19:59.270 --> 00:20:01.050
  • but it only took one Lamb
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:03.100
  • in the New Testament.
  • 00:20:03.100 --> 00:20:05.030
  • John the Baptist said,
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:05.290
  • "Behold, the Lamb of God
  • 00:20:05.290 --> 00:20:08.080
  • that takes away the sins
  • 00:20:08.200 --> 00:20:11.200
  • of the world."
  • 00:20:11.200 --> 00:20:12.200
  • I'm preaching today
  • 00:20:12.200 --> 00:20:14.220
  • a radical gospel.
  • 00:20:14.220 --> 00:20:17.090
  • I'm telling you that when
  • 00:20:17.090 --> 00:20:18.010
  • you truly get cross fit,
  • 00:20:18.010 --> 00:20:20.200
  • you're not satisfied to just ask
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:21.270
  • for forgiveness
  • 00:20:21.270 --> 00:20:23.030
  • and let the thing come back,
  • 00:20:23.030 --> 00:20:24.170
  • and come back, and come back,
  • 00:20:24.170 --> 00:20:26.030
  • but there is something in you,
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:27.280
  • when the fit man fills you
  • 00:20:27.280 --> 00:20:29.010
  • with His glory
  • 00:20:29.010 --> 00:20:30.180
  • and with His power,
  • 00:20:30.180 --> 00:20:32.000
  • it says I want you,
  • 00:20:32.000 --> 00:20:33.190
  • Holy Spirit,
  • 00:20:33.190 --> 00:20:34.160
  • to take this out of me -
  • 00:20:34.160 --> 00:20:35.180
  • take this addiction out of me,
  • 00:20:35.180 --> 00:20:37.090
  • take this fear out of me,
  • 00:20:37.090 --> 00:20:39.120
  • take this torment out of me,
  • 00:20:39.120 --> 00:20:41.040
  • take this suicide spirit
  • 00:20:41.040 --> 00:20:42.150
  • out of me,
  • 00:20:42.150 --> 00:20:43.260
  • and take it away
  • 00:20:43.260 --> 00:20:45.100
  • and I don't ever want it
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:46.100
  • to find me again.
  • 00:20:46.100 --> 00:20:48.150
  • And Jesus, you'll never be
  • 00:20:48.150 --> 00:20:49.270
  • fit enough with willpower.
  • 00:20:50.030 --> 00:20:53.030
  • You'll never be strong enough.
  • 00:20:53.070 --> 00:20:56.070
  • Well, I'm gonna try
  • 00:20:56.070 --> 00:20:57.060
  • to be a good person again.
  • 00:20:57.060 --> 00:20:58.130
  • You gotta get...you
  • 00:20:58.130 --> 00:20:59.200
  • must be born again.
  • 00:20:59.200 --> 00:21:02.150
  • You gotta get the fit man
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:03.080
  • in you!
  • 00:21:03.170 --> 00:21:06.170
  • Then He'll change you
  • 00:21:06.170 --> 00:21:07.180
  • on the inside.
  • 00:21:12.110 --> 00:21:15.110
  • There's a king in the Bible
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:18.290
  • by the name of Ahaz,
  • 00:21:18.290 --> 00:21:20.130
  • and his father,
  • 00:21:20.130 --> 00:21:22.030
  • and his father's father...
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:23.020
  • wicked, wicked, wicked,
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:24.070
  • wicked, wicked.
  • 00:21:24.070 --> 00:21:26.010
  • The Bible said that they caused
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:27.100
  • their children to pass through
  • 00:21:27.100 --> 00:21:29.130
  • the fire.
  • 00:21:29.130 --> 00:21:32.010
  • They burned children
  • 00:21:32.010 --> 00:21:33.010
  • to demon gods
  • 00:21:33.010 --> 00:21:33.280
  • as human sacrifices.
  • 00:21:34.220 --> 00:21:37.220
  • And Ahaz, who was
  • 00:21:37.220 --> 00:21:39.280
  • a child sacrifice
  • 00:21:39.280 --> 00:21:41.210
  • idol worshipper,
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:43.120
  • had a boy named Hezekiah,
  • 00:21:44.240 --> 00:21:47.240
  • and Hezekiah had an encounter
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:50.130
  • with his God.
  • 00:21:50.130 --> 00:21:52.260
  • And, just because your father
  • 00:21:53.240 --> 00:21:56.240
  • was not a fit man,
  • 00:21:56.240 --> 00:21:58.180
  • or your grandfather,
  • 00:21:58.180 --> 00:22:01.040
  • or your mother,
  • 00:22:01.040 --> 00:22:02.250
  • or your grandmother...
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:04.100
  • just because
  • 00:22:04.100 --> 00:22:05.000
  • they never did right,
  • 00:22:05.000 --> 00:22:06.050
  • here's the beauty of this thing.
  • 00:22:06.050 --> 00:22:08.030
  • Hezekiah was raised in a family
  • 00:22:08.030 --> 00:22:10.130
  • of demon worshippers,
  • 00:22:10.130 --> 00:22:11.280
  • witchcraft, sorcery,
  • 00:22:11.280 --> 00:22:13.230
  • offering children's blood
  • 00:22:13.230 --> 00:22:15.180
  • as sacrifice to demon gods.
  • 00:22:15.180 --> 00:22:18.050
  • But Hezekiah said,
  • 00:22:18.050 --> 00:22:19.200
  • just because they weren't fit
  • 00:22:19.200 --> 00:22:21.050
  • doesn't mean I can't be fit.
  • 00:22:21.130 --> 00:22:24.130
  • Just because they couldn't hold
  • 00:22:24.130 --> 00:22:25.140
  • their marriages together,
  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:27.020
  • and all they had was addiction,
  • 00:22:27.020 --> 00:22:28.030
  • and prison, and bondage,
  • 00:22:28.030 --> 00:22:30.020
  • and debt, and nobody wins,
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:32.110
  • and nobody's happy.
  • 00:22:32.110 --> 00:22:34.220
  • and...I am not under the curse!
  • 00:22:34.220 --> 00:22:37.180
  • I am under the blessing,
  • 00:22:37.180 --> 00:22:39.200
  • and a blessing starts here
  • 00:22:39.200 --> 00:22:41.220
  • and now because I'm cross fit!
  • 00:22:41.220 --> 00:22:44.060
  • I surrender to Jesus!
  • 00:22:44.060 --> 00:22:45.290
  • I take up my cross and He says,
  • 00:22:45.290 --> 00:22:47.150
  • I'll bless you and the curse
  • 00:22:47.150 --> 00:22:50.030
  • can't come back to your house!
  • 00:22:50.150 --> 00:22:53.150
  • Those goats are gone forever!
  • 00:22:53.150 --> 00:22:56.070
  • Shout now if you believe
  • 00:22:56.070 --> 00:22:58.010
  • - In our closing moments
  • 00:23:09.110 --> 00:23:10.130
  • of this program,
  • 00:23:10.130 --> 00:23:11.190
  • I wanna share with you
  • 00:23:11.190 --> 00:23:12.230
  • a humbling opportunity
  • 00:23:12.230 --> 00:23:15.060
  • that we have to bless
  • 00:23:15.060 --> 00:23:16.240
  • God's chosen people,
  • 00:23:16.240 --> 00:23:18.120
  • and God's chosen land;
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:20.030
  • the Nation of Israel.
  • 00:23:20.030 --> 00:23:22.140
  • Recently, I travelled there
  • 00:23:22.140 --> 00:23:24.040
  • and visited a community
  • 00:23:24.040 --> 00:23:25.220
  • about 20 minutes
  • 00:23:25.220 --> 00:23:27.060
  • outside of Jerusalem,
  • 00:23:27.060 --> 00:23:29.030
  • that had been completely
  • 00:23:29.030 --> 00:23:30.150
  • destroyed by terrorists.
  • 00:23:30.150 --> 00:23:32.060
  • Hundreds of families
  • 00:23:32.060 --> 00:23:33.150
  • were devastated
  • 00:23:33.150 --> 00:23:35.040
  • as their lives were
  • 00:23:35.040 --> 00:23:36.060
  • burned to the ground.
  • 00:23:36.060 --> 00:23:37.190
  • Thankfully, miraculously,
  • 00:23:37.190 --> 00:23:39.200
  • not one person lost their life,
  • 00:23:39.200 --> 00:23:42.050
  • but I believe that we are
  • 00:23:42.050 --> 00:23:43.050
  • living in prophetic times.
  • 00:23:43.050 --> 00:23:45.260
  • We can be a part of
  • 00:23:45.260 --> 00:23:47.180
  • fulfilling Biblical prophecy,
  • 00:23:47.180 --> 00:23:50.090
  • found in Isaiah 61;
  • 00:23:50.090 --> 00:23:52.200
  • God promised that,
  • 00:23:52.200 --> 00:23:54.040
  • for their ashes,
  • 00:23:54.040 --> 00:23:55.280
  • He would give them beauty.
  • 00:23:56.060 --> 00:23:59.060
  • He's going to use
  • 00:23:59.060 --> 00:24:00.170
  • you and I to do it.
  • 00:24:00.170 --> 00:24:02.080
  • Together, we're gonna provide
  • 00:24:02.080 --> 00:24:04.010
  • the resources -- I love this.
  • 00:24:04.010 --> 00:24:06.070
  • Listen to this:
  • 00:24:06.070 --> 00:24:07.090
  • to plant trees of victory.
  • 00:24:07.090 --> 00:24:09.170
  • You know that
  • 00:24:09.170 --> 00:24:10.010
  • it actually said that?
  • 00:24:10.010 --> 00:24:11.030
  • It said, in Isaiah 61,
  • 00:24:11.030 --> 00:24:13.050
  • "There would be trees of victory
  • 00:24:13.050 --> 00:24:15.240
  • to rebuild the ruined cities,
  • 00:24:15.240 --> 00:24:18.180
  • to declare that no one
  • 00:24:18.180 --> 00:24:20.210
  • will ever be able
  • 00:24:20.210 --> 00:24:22.210
  • to take the land of Israel away
  • 00:24:22.210 --> 00:24:24.270
  • from the Jewish people again."
