  • They deserved to bein God's Hall of Fame,
  • 00:05:55.201 --> 00:05:57.303
  • in God's Hall of Fame,right next to people
  • 00:05:57.303 --> 00:06:00.006

  • And all they didwas win their families.
  • 00:06:04.710 --> 00:06:05.144
  • was win their families.First of all,
  • 00:06:05.144 --> 00:06:09.282
  • First of all,I want us to look at Rahab.
  • 00:06:09.282 --> 00:06:11.584
  • I want us to look at Rahab.It's so shocking to see Rahab.
  • 00:06:11.584 --> 00:06:13.352
  • It's so shocking to see Rahab.And the Bible says it plain --
  • 00:06:13.352 --> 00:06:15.688
  • And the Bible says it plain --the harlot; is mentioned
  • 00:06:15.688 --> 00:06:17.824
  • the harlot; is mentionedin Hebrews 11.
  • 00:06:17.824 --> 00:06:19.792
  • in Hebrews 11.She was a harlot.
  • 00:06:19.792 --> 00:06:22.061
  • She was a harlot.She was a prostitute.
  • 00:06:22.061 --> 00:06:23.696
  • She was a prostitute.She, in our modern times,
  • 00:06:23.696 --> 00:06:25.665
  • She, in our modern times,would be a stripper
  • 00:06:25.665 --> 00:06:29.302
  • would be a stripperor a dance, a lap dancer.
  • 00:06:29.302 --> 00:06:30.603
  • or a dance, a lap dancer.And that's very plain
  • 00:06:30.603 --> 00:06:32.972
  • And that's very plainand rude almost to say
  • 00:06:32.972 --> 00:06:34.207
  • and rude almost to saythat in a public audience.
  • 00:06:34.207 --> 00:06:36.843
  • that in a public audience.And yet, God put that detail
  • 00:06:36.843 --> 00:06:38.811
  • And yet, God put that detailso that He could say to anybody
  • 00:06:38.811 --> 00:06:39.846
  • so that He could say to anybodylistening to me
  • 00:06:39.846 --> 00:06:41.981
  • listening to methat there is nothing
  • 00:06:41.981 --> 00:06:44.584
  • that there is nothingin your family's background
  • 00:06:44.584 --> 00:06:46.118
  • in your family's backgroundthat is more powerful
  • 00:06:46.118 --> 00:06:47.320
  • that is more powerfulthan God's grace
  • 00:06:47.320 --> 00:06:48.955
  • than God's graceand God's mercy,
  • 00:06:48.955 --> 00:06:49.489
  • and God's mercy,and it doesn't matter
  • 00:06:49.489 --> 00:06:51.290
  • and it doesn't matterwhere you came from,
  • 00:06:51.290 --> 00:06:54.260
  • where you came from,God can turn you and your family
  • 00:06:54.260 --> 00:06:55.428
  • God can turn you and your familyinto heroes
  • 00:06:55.428 --> 00:06:56.796
  • into heroesfor His kingdom's sake
  • 00:06:56.796 --> 00:06:58.297
  • for His kingdom's sakebecause Rahab
  • 00:06:58.297 --> 00:06:58.965
  • because Rahabdidn't just get
  • 00:06:58.965 --> 00:07:01.868
  • didn't just getin Hebrews 11 as a harlot.
  • 00:07:01.868 --> 00:07:04.537
  • in Hebrews 11 as a harlot.When you find her in Matthew 1
  • 00:07:04.537 --> 00:07:06.439
  • When you find her in Matthew 1in the genealogy of Jesus,
  • 00:07:06.439 --> 00:07:07.573
  • in the genealogy of Jesus,it doesn't say
  • 00:07:07.573 --> 00:07:08.875
  • it doesn't say"the harlot Rahab",
  • 00:07:08.875 --> 00:07:10.343
  • "the harlot Rahab",it just says Rahab.
  • 00:07:10.343 --> 00:07:11.110
  • it just says Rahab.What happened?
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:13.012
  • What happened?Grace covered her past
  • 00:07:13.012 --> 00:07:15.581
  • Grace covered her pastand grace took a messed up,
  • 00:07:15.581 --> 00:07:17.016
  • and grace took a messed up,dysfunctional family
  • 00:07:17.016 --> 00:07:17.917
  • dysfunctional familyand made them
  • 00:07:17.917 --> 00:07:20.219
  • and made themcause Jesus Christ,

  • cause Jesus Christ,to play a part in Jesus Christ
  • 00:07:22.488 --> 00:07:26.359
  • to play a part in Jesus Christcoming into the earth.
  • 00:07:26.359 --> 00:07:27.360
  • coming into the earth.You remember the story,
  • 00:07:27.360 --> 00:07:28.794
  • You remember the story,the two spies.
  • 00:07:28.794 --> 00:07:31.531
  • the two spies.Everybody say, "Two spies".
  • 00:07:31.531 --> 00:07:32.632
  • Everybody say, "Two spies".The two is the number
  • 00:07:32.632 --> 00:07:33.566
  • The two is the numberof witnesses.
  • 00:07:33.566 --> 00:07:34.800
  • of witnesses.The Bible said in Corinthians
  • 00:07:34.800 --> 00:07:36.569
  • The Bible said in Corinthiansthat "out of the mouth

  • of two or three witnessesevery word must be established",
  • 00:07:39.906 --> 00:07:42.241
  • every word must be established",so two has to do with the fact
  • 00:07:42.241 --> 00:07:43.175
  • so two has to do with the factthat they were coming
  • 00:07:43.175 --> 00:07:43.976
  • that they were comingto her house
  • 00:07:43.976 --> 00:07:45.044
  • to her houseand they realized
  • 00:07:45.044 --> 00:07:47.179
  • and they realizedthat the king was on to them.
  • 00:07:47.179 --> 00:07:48.114
  • that the king was on to them.They were spying out
  • 00:07:48.114 --> 00:07:49.448
  • They were spying outthe city of Jericho
  • 00:07:49.448 --> 00:07:50.449

  • 00:07:53.519 --> 00:07:54.287
  • And when the king heardthat there were strangers
  • 00:07:54.287 --> 00:07:55.121
  • that there were strangersin the city,
  • 00:07:55.121 --> 00:07:57.056

  • they knew they had to hideand they came
  • 00:07:57.657 --> 00:07:59.258
  • and they cameto the harlot's house.
  • 00:07:59.258 --> 00:08:01.360
  • to the harlot's house.And they said, "We are here

  • We're given their namesin the book of Exodus.
  • 00:16:38.210 --> 00:16:39.445
  • in the book of Exodus.I think the man's name
  • 00:16:39.445 --> 00:16:41.313
  • I think the man's namewas Amram.
  • 00:16:41.313 --> 00:16:43.949
