  • 00:00:04.200 --> 00:00:07.280
  • except He wants us to walk out,
  • 00:00:08.010 --> 00:00:10.010
  • look at the stars and say, There's got to be a God.
  • 00:00:10.040 --> 00:00:13.090
  • 00:00:13.120 --> 00:00:26.280
  • ROBERT: The title of the series, by the way,
  • 00:00:28.220 --> 00:00:29.240
  • is, Eternity: Your Choice.
  • 00:00:29.270 --> 00:00:33.000
  • So, I want to nail it down that God did not choose
  • 00:00:33.030 --> 00:00:36.220
  • some people to go to heaven
  • 00:00:36.250 --> 00:00:37.270
  • and some people to go to hell, that it is completely
  • 00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:40.220
  • your choice where you spend eternity.
  • 00:00:40.250 --> 00:00:44.080
  • So we talked about, Whosoever Will, Where and How.
  • 00:00:44.110 --> 00:00:46.190
  • This weekend, the message is, Why?
  • 00:00:46.220 --> 00:00:50.270
  • And what I'm going to do is take some of those tough questions,
  • 00:00:51.000 --> 00:00:54.220
  • and we're going to answer those.
  • 00:00:54.250 --> 00:00:57.000
  • For instance, why would God send someone to hell?
  • 00:00:57.030 --> 00:01:00.150
  • Why would a loving God, is the way
  • 00:01:00.180 --> 00:01:02.020
  • it's phrased many times, send someone to hell?
  • 00:01:02.050 --> 00:01:04.130
  • Why did God even create hell?
  • 00:01:04.160 --> 00:01:07.050
  • Why did God create two trees in the garden?
  • 00:01:07.080 --> 00:01:10.110
  • And of course, there were many trees,
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:11.140
  • but I'm referring to the Tree of Life,
  • 00:01:11.170 --> 00:01:13.170
  • the Tree of Knowledge and Good and Evil.
  • 00:01:13.200 --> 00:01:14.220
  • Why did God even give Adam and Eve a choice?
  • 00:01:14.250 --> 00:01:18.150
  • I mean, that's a question a lot of people have. Why?
  • 00:01:18.180 --> 00:01:22.210
  • Okay, in order to answer these questions though,
  • 00:01:22.240 --> 00:01:26.010
  • please hear me.
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:28.040
  • You can never answer a difficult question about God
  • 00:01:28.070 --> 00:01:32.160
  • without making sure that your answer
  • 00:01:32.190 --> 00:01:36.060
  • is congruent with His nature and His character,
  • 00:01:36.090 --> 00:01:40.080
  • and we know His nature and His character through Scripture,
  • 00:01:40.110 --> 00:01:43.250
  • and the whole of Scripture.
  • 00:01:43.280 --> 00:01:45.100
  • It's very important you understand
  • 00:01:45.130 --> 00:01:46.130
  • it's the whole of Scripture,
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:48.000
  • because there are some Scriptures
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:50.200
  • that would tend us to believe some way of thinking
  • 00:01:50.230 --> 00:01:56.120
  • that might cause us to think, Well, God might do that,
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:59.270
  • and God is justified to do something like that.
  • 00:02:00.020 --> 00:02:03.190
  • But if you try to answer difficult questions about God
  • 00:02:03.220 --> 00:02:06.290
  • without taking into consideration His character,
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:11.020
  • if you begin going down a line of thought, and this is very,
  • 00:02:11.050 --> 00:02:13.230
  • very important to me -- again, I'm not trying
  • 00:02:13.260 --> 00:02:15.280
  • to pick a fight with someone who believes that way.
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:18.160
  • I'm really not.
  • 00:02:18.190 --> 00:02:20.010
  • But, it is so difficult for me to believe that people
  • 00:02:20.040 --> 00:02:23.210
  • can believe that and not believe God is good.
  • 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:32.030
  • In other words, I don't know how you can believe
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:34.090
  • some of these things if you believe God's good,
  • 00:02:34.120 --> 00:02:36.220
  • God's a good God.
  • 00:02:36.250 --> 00:02:38.020
  • So, we're gonna look at some attributes of God today
  • 00:02:38.050 --> 00:02:42.250
  • that are extremely important, because here's the reason.
  • 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:45.230
  • When I read something in this book and I think,
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:48.000
  • Now, I don't understand that, that sounds like God
  • 00:02:48.030 --> 00:02:50.260
  • might be harsh, or mean, or cruel,
  • 00:02:50.290 --> 00:02:54.030
  • I always go back to, Well, I may not understand it,
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:57.000
  • but I know God's good, and I know God's character,
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:03:00.240
  • and I've studied the whole of Scripture
  • 00:03:00.270 --> 00:03:02.260
  • to know God's character.
  • 00:03:02.290 --> 00:03:04.190
  • So, we have to answer difficult questions
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:07.110
  • in light of God's character. It has to be congruent.
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:11.200
  • Any way of thinking you have has to be compatible
  • 00:03:11.230 --> 00:03:14.130
  • with Scripture, the whole of Scripture.
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:15.290
  • All right? So, three points today.
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:18.050
  • Number one, I've already alluded to, God is good.
  • 00:03:18.080 --> 00:03:23.140
  • He is good.
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:26.090
  • Psalm 119:68 says, You are good and do good.
  • 00:03:26.120 --> 00:03:33.190
  • You are good and do good.
  • 00:03:33.220 --> 00:03:35.140
  • By the way, if you told yourself that,
  • 00:03:35.170 --> 00:03:37.150
  • reminded yourself of that Scripture every morning,
  • 00:03:37.180 --> 00:03:40.270
  • it might change your day.
  • 00:03:41.000 --> 00:03:43.060
  • You are good and You do good
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:45.130
  • Now, this is the reason I really love this Scripture,
  • 00:03:45.160 --> 00:03:48.270
  • You are good and You do good
  • 00:03:49.000 --> 00:03:52.080
  • Now, listen carefully to what I'm gonna say, okay?
  • 00:03:52.110 --> 00:03:55.170
  • God isn't good because He does good,
  • 00:03:55.200 --> 00:04:00.110
  • God does good because He is good.
  • 00:04:00.140 --> 00:04:04.100
  • Do you follow me? Let me say it again.
  • 00:04:04.130 --> 00:04:07.030
  • Him being good is not dependent upon Him doing good.
  • 00:04:07.060 --> 00:04:12.080
  • He does good because He is good.
  • 00:04:12.110 --> 00:04:15.060
  • See, it's like God is truth. He is truth.
  • 00:04:15.090 --> 00:04:21.230
  • Jesus didn't say I know the truth,
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:23.200
  • he said I am truth. I'm truth.
  • 00:04:23.230 --> 00:04:26.000
  • Okay, so because God is truth, He can't lie.
  • 00:04:26.030 --> 00:04:30.100
  • He can't lie.
  • 00:04:30.130 --> 00:04:31.130
  • This is what, and it's a real big problem
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:33.130
  • with most people's definition of the sovereignty of God,
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:40.120
  • because what they think that it means is that God
  • 00:04:40.150 --> 00:04:43.000
  • can do anything He wants to do. No.
  • 00:04:43.030 --> 00:04:46.140
  • What it means is... I wish you'd study it.
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:49.120
  • Sovereign means He's the supreme ruler of the universe.
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:52.220
  • But because He is who He is, you say,
  • 00:04:52.250 --> 00:04:56.070
  • Well, God can do anything He wants.
  • 00:04:56.100 --> 00:04:57.080
  • No, God can't act outside of His character.
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:05:01.230
  • He can't. Are you all following this?
  • 00:05:01.260 --> 00:05:04.280
  • Am I making it clear, because it's not
  • 00:05:05.010 --> 00:05:06.190
  • that you follow me, it's me saying it clearly.
  • 00:05:06.220 --> 00:05:08.230
  • God is truth, so He can't lie.
  • 00:05:08.260 --> 00:05:13.020
  • He's not a man that He shall lie. Okay.
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:14.180
  • In the same way, God is love.
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:17.270
  • So, everything I read in the Scripture,
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:19.120
  • I have to put within, does this fit
  • 00:05:19.150 --> 00:05:22.000
  • in the basic that God is good?
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:24.230
  • We're gonna talk about God's love in minute,
  • 00:05:24.260 --> 00:05:26.080
  • but God is good. Okay.
  • 00:05:26.110 --> 00:05:27.200
  • So, let me explain something about how good God is.
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:32.000
  • Moses asked God to see His glory.
  • 00:05:32.030 --> 00:05:36.220
  • Now, glory is this huge word.
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:38.170
  • I could tell you the Hebrew and the words it comes from.
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:41.060
  • I could tell you the Greek and the words it comes from
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:43.130
  • and explain, but that wouldn't help us much, okay?
  • 00:05:43.160 --> 00:05:45.200
  • So, I'm gonna give you a practical definition.
  • 00:05:45.230 --> 00:05:50.000
  • Glory is what you're famous for.
  • 00:05:50.030 --> 00:05:53.240
  • It's what you're known for.
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:55.150
  • Okay, so Moses, when he said, Show me Your glory,
  • 00:05:55.180 --> 00:05:58.060
  • here's what he was saying -- show me what You're famous for.
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:06:02.050
  • Show me what You're best at. What do You do best, okay?
  • 00:06:02.080 --> 00:06:08.120
  • Look at this.
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:09.140
  • Here's what he said, and we'll get to Isaiah 5
  • 00:06:09.170 --> 00:06:11.110
  • at the very... along time from now, okay?
  • 00:06:11.140 --> 00:06:13.180
  • Just, all right?
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:15.260
  • Exodus 33:18, And he, Moses, said,
  • 00:06:15.290 --> 00:06:19.070
  • Please show me Your glory.
  • 00:06:19.100 --> 00:06:20.170
  • Then He, that's God, said, okay,
  • 00:06:20.200 --> 00:06:23.020
  • I'll make My goodness pass before you.
  • 00:06:23.050 --> 00:06:26.190
  • I love that Scripture!
  • 00:06:26.220 --> 00:06:29.040
  • Show me what You're famous for.
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:31.120
  • He said, Oh.
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:32.140
  • Well, I'm famous for being good.
  • 00:06:32.170 --> 00:06:35.090
  • That's what I'm famous for. I'm known for good.
  • 00:06:35.120 --> 00:06:38.260
  • Okay, so because I know that, anything I read in the Bible
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:43.180
  • has to line up with the goodness of God.
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:46.130
  • And what happens is we read something in the Bible,
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:49.200
  • and we think, Man, that sounds like God's being mean.
  • 00:06:49.230 --> 00:06:53.040
  • So, let me show you one.
  • 00:06:53.070 --> 00:06:54.130
  • When Adam and Eve sinned, God drove them out of the garden,
  • 00:06:54.160 --> 00:06:58.140
  • and He gave a reason why He drove them out.
  • 00:06:58.170 --> 00:07:02.050
  • But when you understand He's good,
  • 00:07:02.080 --> 00:07:04.000
  • you understand why He drove them out.
  • 00:07:04.030 --> 00:07:05.220
  • Okay, let me read it, Genesis 3:22.
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:08.060
  • Then the Lord God said, Behold, the man has become
  • 00:07:08.090 --> 00:07:10.290
  • like one of Us, Us: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
  • 00:07:11.020 --> 00:07:14.140
  • To know good and evil.
  • 00:07:14.170 --> 00:07:16.080
  • And now, watch, lest he put out his hand and take also
  • 00:07:16.110 --> 00:07:20.190
  • of the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever,
  • 00:07:20.220 --> 00:07:23.280
  • and then notice the sentence stops there,
  • 00:07:24.010 --> 00:07:25.130
  • even though that's not a complete sentence.
  • 00:07:25.160 --> 00:07:27.100
  • Watch, and that's very important,
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:28.200
  • why I'm telling you this.
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:30.010
  • Therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden
  • 00:07:30.040 --> 00:07:32.030
  • to till the ground from which he was taken.
  • 00:07:32.060 --> 00:07:33.210
  • So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim,
  • 00:07:33.240 --> 00:07:37.260
  • that's really big dudes.
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:40.230
  • That's what that means in the Hebrew, really big dudes,
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:44.180
  • angels, at the east of the garden of Eden,
  • 00:07:44.210 --> 00:07:47.030
  • and a flaming sword, watch this, a flaming sword --
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:50.130
  • it doesn't even say anybody was holding it.
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:52.280
  • A flaming sword which turned every way, north,
  • 00:07:53.010 --> 00:07:57.030
  • south, east, and west, to guard the way
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:07:59.230
  • to the Tree of Life. Okay.
  • 00:07:59.260 --> 00:08:01.090
  • Here's why I said, you know, I want you to notice
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:03.150
  • the sentence says, God said,
  • 00:08:03.180 --> 00:08:04.260
  • Hey, man has become like Us now.
  • 00:08:04.290 --> 00:08:06.280
  • He knows good and evil.
  • 00:08:07.010 --> 00:08:08.140
  • We'd better drive him out of the garden,
  • 00:08:08.170 --> 00:08:09.290
  • lest he take from the Tree of Life and live forever,
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:12.260
  • and then it doesn't go on.
  • 00:08:12.290 --> 00:08:14.050
  • Lest he take from the Tree of Life and live forever,
  • 00:08:14.080 --> 00:08:16.070
  • da dada da, what? What does that mean?
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:17.190
  • Okay, so many people have said, See, that just shows God
  • 00:08:17.220 --> 00:08:20.150
  • was mad at Adam and Eve, and in His temper,
  • 00:08:20.180 --> 00:08:23.020
  • He just drove them out. No.
  • 00:08:23.050 --> 00:08:25.010
  • God's good. Here's why He was saying it.
  • 00:08:25.040 --> 00:08:28.240
  • He said They are now - Adam and Eve -
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:31.050
  • are now in a fallen state. They're in a fallen state.
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:36.100
  • They are now separated from Me, and if they eat
  • 00:08:36.130 --> 00:08:39.080
  • from the Tree of Life now, they will live forever
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:43.120
  • in a fallen state, separated from Me.
  • 00:08:43.150 --> 00:08:48.150
  • Get em out.
  • 00:08:48.180 --> 00:08:49.220
  • Get em out right now, and put a flaming sword down
  • 00:08:49.250 --> 00:08:52.120
  • there so they don't eat from that tree in a fallen state,
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:57.000
  • because they'll live forever, separated from Us.
  • 00:08:57.030 --> 00:08:59.250
  • You all see that?
  • 00:08:59.280 --> 00:09:01.060
  • See, that's God's goodness, but people don't pick that up
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:04.120
  • if you don't have it rooted in you, God's a good God.
  • 00:09:04.150 --> 00:09:08.030
  • By the way, three Scriptures in Revelation tell us
  • 00:09:08.060 --> 00:09:11.100
  • that that Tree of Life is in heaven,
  • 00:09:11.130 --> 00:09:14.170
  • and you can eat from it all you want
  • 00:09:14.200 --> 00:09:17.040
  • because you're in a redeemed state,
  • 00:09:17.070 --> 00:09:19.080
  • and it's fine for you to eat from the Tree of Life
  • 00:09:19.110 --> 00:09:21.090
  • in a redeemed state, but He doesn't want you
  • 00:09:21.120 --> 00:09:23.180
  • to eat from it in a fallen state.
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:26.070
  • He doesn't want you to stay fallen.
  • 00:09:26.100 --> 00:09:27.230
  • [Applause]
  • 00:09:27.260 --> 00:09:29.110
  • So, God's a good God, and that's the first thing
  • 00:09:30.290 --> 00:09:32.220
  • I want you to know.
  • 00:09:32.250 --> 00:09:33.240
  • Here's the second thing, God is just.
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:37.060
  • He's just.
  • 00:09:37.090 --> 00:09:39.230
  • It's not just that He does just things, He is just.
  • 00:09:39.260 --> 00:09:45.000
  • Isaiah 45:21, There is no other God besides Me,
  • 00:09:45.030 --> 00:09:49.040
  • this is God speaking, a just God and a Savior.
  • 00:09:49.070 --> 00:09:54.230
  • A just God and a Savior.
  • 00:09:54.260 --> 00:09:56.250
  • There will never be injustice with God
  • 00:09:56.280 --> 00:09:59.290
  • or any of His judgments, never.
  • 00:10:00.020 --> 00:10:02.190
  • Because I know that -- see, I can't go along
  • 00:10:02.220 --> 00:10:05.250
  • with this thing that God chose some to go to heaven
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:07.240
  • and some to go to hell, cause that's not just.
  • 00:10:07.270 --> 00:10:11.160
  • That's not justice, and I know God. I know God.
  • 00:10:11.190 --> 00:10:15.040
  • I don't know if you all know this,
  • 00:10:15.070 --> 00:10:16.150
  • I've met Him personally. I'm saved!
  • 00:10:16.180 --> 00:10:23.050
  • Are any of you all saved? Anybody here?
  • 00:10:23.080 --> 00:10:27.040
  • Okay, so you've met Him, too!
  • 00:10:27.070 --> 00:10:29.010
  • I'm not special, you met Him too!
  • 00:10:29.040 --> 00:10:31.160
  • And I talk to Him every day!
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:34.010
  • Do you talk to Him every day?
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:35.010
  • I talk to Him every day.
  • 00:10:35.040 --> 00:10:36.060
  • And, He wrote me a love letter, and I've read it,
  • 00:10:36.090 --> 00:10:39.110
  • multiple times!
  • 00:10:39.140 --> 00:10:41.000
  • So, I can't believe anything that doesn't line
  • 00:10:41.030 --> 00:10:43.220
  • up with this book!
  • 00:10:43.250 --> 00:10:45.060
  • I cannot believe it, cause I know this God!
  • 00:10:45.090 --> 00:10:48.210
  • I know He's good, and I know He's just.
  • 00:10:48.240 --> 00:10:51.250
  • So, we have these questions, though.
  • 00:10:51.280 --> 00:10:54.010
  • Well, would a loving God, or how could a just God,
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:58.280
  • send anyone to hell?
  • 00:10:59.010 --> 00:11:00.140
  • And I'm gonna answer that, okay?
  • 00:11:00.170 --> 00:11:02.210
  • But, here's another question.
  • 00:11:02.240 --> 00:11:04.020
  • Would God send someone to hell who's never had a chance?
  • 00:11:04.050 --> 00:11:07.230
  • Never heard the gospel, never had a chance?
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:10.080
  • Okay, let's answer by the Bible -
  • 00:11:10.110 --> 00:11:13.150
  • not our opinion, by the Bible.
  • 00:11:13.180 --> 00:11:14.250
  • Romans 1:18, For the wrath of God is revealed
  • 00:11:14.280 --> 00:11:18.180
  • from heaven against all ungodliness
  • 00:11:18.210 --> 00:11:21.230
  • and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth
  • 00:11:21.260 --> 00:11:24.270
  • in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God
  • 00:11:25.000 --> 00:11:31.030
  • is manifest... now, let me just tell you
  • 00:11:31.060 --> 00:11:34.210
  • and then I'll go in a little deeper.
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:36.080
  • The word manifest means to make known.
  • 00:11:36.110 --> 00:11:39.140
  • That's what it means.
  • 00:11:39.170 --> 00:11:40.250
  • I know it sounds like a big word,
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:42.040
  • but it means to make known. So, watch this Scripture.
  • 00:11:42.070 --> 00:11:44.140
  • Because what may be known of God is made known.
  • 00:11:44.170 --> 00:11:49.010
  • In other words, God makes it known to every person. Watch.
  • 00:11:49.040 --> 00:11:52.030
  • In, underline that word, in them,
  • 00:11:52.060 --> 00:11:55.070
  • for God has shown it to them.
  • 00:11:55.100 --> 00:11:57.130
  • I want you to remember in and to.
  • 00:11:57.160 --> 00:11:59.110
  • For since the creation of the world, now, watch this.
  • 00:11:59.140 --> 00:12:03.120
  • This is kind of tough to explain, but it's good.
  • 00:12:03.150 --> 00:12:06.270
  • Listen, watch.
  • 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:07.280
  • His invisible attributes...
  • 00:12:08.010 --> 00:12:11.060
  • now, what's the word invisible mean?
  • 00:12:11.090 --> 00:12:13.190
  • You can't see Him, right? Okay, watch.
  • 00:12:13.220 --> 00:12:15.290
  • What can't be seen about Him, watch,
  • 00:12:16.020 --> 00:12:18.150
  • His invisible attributes, are clearly seen.
  • 00:12:18.180 --> 00:12:22.220
  • Kind of a play on words, isn't it?
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:24.210
  • In other words, His character,
  • 00:12:24.240 --> 00:12:25.280
  • His goodness, is clearly seen.
  • 00:12:26.010 --> 00:12:28.110
  • His love is clearly seen.
  • 00:12:28.140 --> 00:12:30.290
  • Being understood by the things which are made,
  • 00:12:31.020 --> 00:12:34.190
  • even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they,
  • 00:12:34.220 --> 00:12:37.140
  • that's the people who live in unrighteousness
  • 00:12:37.170 --> 00:12:39.240
  • and won't accept Him, so that they are without excuse. Okay.
  • 00:12:39.270 --> 00:12:43.090
  • So, God manifests Himself to every person
  • 00:12:43.120 --> 00:12:46.290
  • internally and externally.
  • 00:12:47.020 --> 00:12:50.050
  • That's what it's saying, internally and externally.
  • 00:12:50.080 --> 00:12:52.220
  • So again, let me give you a little moral manifest.
  • 00:12:52.250 --> 00:12:55.180
  • If I said to you, There is a multi-billionaire
  • 00:12:55.210 --> 00:13:01.210
  • in the service.
  • 00:13:01.240 --> 00:13:03.280
  • I just wanted everybody to know that.
  • 00:13:04.010 --> 00:13:05.090
  • And then, I'd just go on, and you'd think,
  • 00:13:05.120 --> 00:13:07.060
  • Oh, okay, big deal.
  • 00:13:07.090 --> 00:13:08.290
  • But if that multi-billionaire got up and began to do
  • 00:13:09.020 --> 00:13:13.200
  • what only a multi- billionaire could do,
  • 00:13:13.230 --> 00:13:17.130
  • and that is give every person $100.000...
  • 00:13:17.160 --> 00:13:24.110
  • are there any multi-billionaires in the --
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:26.100
  • No, I was just joking, just joking, just joking.
  • 00:13:26.130 --> 00:13:31.100
  • Okay, but if he did, and he gave to every person
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:35.110
  • what only he could do, he did for them
  • 00:13:35.140 --> 00:13:37.110
  • what only he could do for them,
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:39.190
  • he'd be manifesting his presence.
  • 00:13:39.220 --> 00:13:42.060
  • He wouldn't just be in our service,
  • 00:13:42.090 --> 00:13:43.200
  • in our presence,
  • 00:13:43.230 --> 00:13:45.040
  • he'd be making his presence known. Listen.
  • 00:13:45.070 --> 00:13:48.070
  • This is why I love worship,
  • 00:13:48.100 --> 00:13:51.110
  • because it's not just the omnipresence of God,
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:54.230
  • it's the manifest presence of God.
  • 00:13:54.260 --> 00:13:57.110
  • He gets up during our worship, and He begins to walk around
  • 00:13:57.140 --> 00:14:02.040
  • and give to every person what only God can give to you.
  • 00:14:02.070 --> 00:14:06.290
  • He's the only one that can give it to you.
  • 00:14:07.020 --> 00:14:08.250
  • [Applause]
  • 00:14:08.280 --> 00:14:11.220
  • He makes Himself known, all right?
  • 00:14:11.250 --> 00:14:14.170
  • So, how does He make Himself known, according to this,
  • 00:14:14.200 --> 00:14:16.170
  • internally and externally?
  • 00:14:16.200 --> 00:14:17.220
  • Let me say it this way, all right?
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:20.200
  • God manifests Himself to every person on the inside,
  • 00:14:20.230 --> 00:14:25.080
  • because we have a conscience.
  • 00:14:25.110 --> 00:14:27.250
  • Every person has a conscience.
  • 00:14:27.280 --> 00:14:29.290
  • He manifests Himself to every person on the outside,
  • 00:14:30.020 --> 00:14:33.260
  • because we have creation. Conscience and creation.
  • 00:14:33.290 --> 00:14:38.290
  • Your conscience tells you there's a God, and creation
  • 00:14:39.020 --> 00:14:44.010
  • tells us there's a God. Think about this.
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:47.200
  • Why did God create a universe this big?
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:53.020
  • Stars, as far as right now, as far as our telescopes can go,
  • 00:14:53.050 --> 00:14:56.180
  • this is what I've been told, 300 million light years away.
  • 00:14:56.210 --> 00:15:02.170
  • Light years.
  • 00:15:02.200 --> 00:15:03.190
  • If you traveled the speed of light,
  • 00:15:03.220 --> 00:15:04.250
  • 186.000 miles per second. That's pretty fast.
  • 00:15:04.280 --> 00:15:10.140
  • 300 million -- why in the world would God create
  • 00:15:10.170 --> 00:15:15.220
  • a universe that big, except He wants us to walk out,
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:20.030
  • look at the stars and say, There's got to be a God.
  • 00:15:20.060 --> 00:15:24.110
  • There's got to be God.
  • 00:15:24.140 --> 00:15:25.190
  • And here's what's amazing to me.
  • 00:15:25.220 --> 00:15:27.230
  • People say that that takes a leap of faith.
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:31.280
  • Okay, here's the other one.
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:34.240
  • Nothing collided with nothing, and all of this came into being.
  • 00:15:34.270 --> 00:15:43.100
  • You want to talk about a leap of faith?
  • 00:15:43.130 --> 00:15:46.000
  • [Applause]
  • 00:15:46.030 --> 00:15:53.020
  • It is crazy!
  • 00:15:53.050 --> 00:15:56.070
  • By the way, it is still called the Big Bang Theory.
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:16:01.120
  • Okay, but why?
  • 00:16:01.150 --> 00:16:03.280
  • Why did God do this? Let me tell you something.
  • 00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:05.050
  • God put eternity in every person's heart.
  • 00:16:05.080 --> 00:16:08.160
  • God has put eternity in every person's heart.
  • 00:16:08.190 --> 00:16:10.180
  • Think about this.
  • 00:16:10.210 --> 00:16:13.250
  • No person can ever say, No one told me.
  • 00:16:13.280 --> 00:16:16.290
  • Here's why.
  • 00:16:17.020 --> 00:16:18.040
  • Because God can come and say, I told you.
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:22.190
  • I came to you when you were a child,
  • 00:16:22.220 --> 00:16:26.170
  • and I put it in your heart to wonder about Me.
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.160
  • I want to just take a little poll at every campus, all right?
  • 00:16:28.190 --> 00:16:30.240
  • How many of you remember wondering about God
  • 00:16:30.270 --> 00:16:35.070
  • when you were a child? Can I see your hands?
  • 00:16:35.100 --> 00:16:40.030
  • That's because God put it in your heart.
  • 00:16:40.060 --> 00:16:42.240
  • And let me tell you something else,
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:44.000
  • so this may blow you away, and I'm just gonna list
  • 00:16:44.030 --> 00:16:46.210
  • a few of the Scriptures, just because of time, okay?
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:48.210
  • Just a few.
  • 00:16:48.240 --> 00:16:50.080
  • Every person - this is what the Bible says -
  • 00:16:50.110 --> 00:16:52.130
  • every person - every, every person who seeks
  • 00:16:52.160 --> 00:16:58.120
  • after God will find Him. Every person.
  • 00:16:58.150 --> 00:17:05.220
  • Let me just show you a few of the Scriptures, all right?
  • 00:17:05.250 --> 00:17:08.080
  • Proverbs 8:17, I love those who love Me,
  • 00:17:08.110 --> 00:17:11.080
  • and those who seek Me diligently will find Me.
  • 00:17:11.110 --> 00:17:14.280
  • Not might, not should, not hopefully - will. They will.
  • 00:17:15.010 --> 00:17:18.170
  • If they'll seek Me diligently, they will.
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:20.060
  • Jeremiah 29:13, And you will seek Me and find Me.
  • 00:17:20.090 --> 00:17:24.140
  • You will find Me.
  • 00:17:24.170 --> 00:17:26.060
  • The verb still applies to find.
  • 00:17:26.090 --> 00:17:27.220
  • When you search for Me with all your heart.
  • 00:17:27.250 --> 00:17:30.180
  • Jesus Himself, Matthew 7, Sermon on the Mount, 7 and 8.
  • 00:17:30.210 --> 00:17:33.230
  • And ask, and it will be given to you; seek,
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:37.280
  • and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
  • 00:17:38.010 --> 00:17:41.180
  • For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds,
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:44.120
  • and to him who knocks it will be opened.
  • 00:17:44.150 --> 00:17:45.240
  • And Acts 17, this is the way Paul put it
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:48.030
  • in his sermon on Mars Hill.
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:50.070
  • Verse 26 and 27, And He has made from one blood
  • 00:17:50.100 --> 00:17:53.230
  • every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth,
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:58.000
  • and has determined their preappointed times
  • 00:17:58.030 --> 00:18:00.090
  • and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that, so that,
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:04.020
  • because, therefore, so that they should seek the Lord.
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:09.220
  • He's done this for every person.
  • 00:18:09.250 --> 00:18:11.020
  • He's put it in every person's heart to seek Him.
  • 00:18:11.050 --> 00:18:13.050
  • In the hope that they might grope for Him, that's the hope,
  • 00:18:13.080 --> 00:18:17.040
  • and if they do grope for Him, and grope, by the way,
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:19.130
  • means to make an effort.
  • 00:18:19.160 --> 00:18:21.220
  • That's all it means, just make an effort.
  • 00:18:21.250 --> 00:18:24.040
  • Watch. And find Him.
  • 00:18:24.070 --> 00:18:27.110
  • God put eternity in your heart so you would look for Him,
  • 00:18:27.140 --> 00:18:32.050
  • and if you look for Him, you'll find Him,
  • 00:18:32.080 --> 00:18:34.110
  • because He is not far from each one of us -
  • 00:18:34.140 --> 00:18:37.230
  • though He is not far from each one of us.
  • 00:18:37.260 --> 00:18:39.170
  • So, God's a just God.
  • 00:18:39.200 --> 00:18:42.080
  • He's good, He's just, and here's number three,
  • 00:18:42.110 --> 00:18:47.080
  • God is love.
  • 00:18:47.110 --> 00:18:49.220
  • 1 John 4:18, He who does not love God does not know God,
  • 00:18:49.250 --> 00:18:54.270
  • for God is love.
  • 00:18:55.000 --> 00:18:59.130
  • Okay, so this question, why would a loving God
  • 00:18:59.160 --> 00:19:01.220
  • send anyone to hell?
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:04.000
  • Well, I'm gonna get to it, but just for a moment,
  • 00:19:04.030 --> 00:19:05.260
  • could we just look at that, that issue,
  • 00:19:05.290 --> 00:19:10.150
  • from a biblical perspective, okay?
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:14.110
  • First of all, you need to know something about hell.
  • 00:19:14.140 --> 00:19:17.180
  • God did not create hell for people.
  • 00:19:17.210 --> 00:19:23.210
  • People say, Well, why would a loving God even create hell
  • 00:19:23.240 --> 00:19:25.280
  • for people?
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:26.280
  • He didn't create hell for people.
  • 00:19:27.010 --> 00:19:29.060
  • He created hell for the devil and his angels.
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:33.020
  • Jesus' own words, Matthew 25:41.
  • 00:19:33.050 --> 00:19:35.240
  • Then He will also say to those on the left hand,
  • 00:19:35.270 --> 00:19:37.220
  • Depart from Me, you cursed,
  • 00:19:37.250 --> 00:19:39.050
  • into the everlasting fire prepared -
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:42.010
  • the root of this word in the Greek means built.
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:44.220
  • Built for the devil and his angels.
  • 00:19:44.250 --> 00:19:49.080
  • So, He didn't prepare hell for you.
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:51.250
  • He prepared heaven for you.
  • 00:19:51.280 --> 00:19:54.180
  • I go to prepare a place for you.
  • 00:19:54.210 --> 00:19:58.230
  • He didn't prepare hell for you, and He built it
  • 00:19:58.260 --> 00:20:02.000
  • for the devil's angels, but men became evil.
  • 00:20:02.030 --> 00:20:05.230
  • And so, watch what happened.
  • 00:20:05.260 --> 00:20:07.160
  • This may be something you've never seen in your life.
  • 00:20:07.190 --> 00:20:10.290
  • By the way, I'm now at Isaiah 5.
  • 00:20:11.020 --> 00:20:13.160
  • I got there. Okay?
  • 00:20:13.190 --> 00:20:17.190
  • And we'll read something after this also
  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:19.190
  • in Isaiah 5, so you can stay there.
  • 00:20:19.220 --> 00:20:21.010
  • Verse 11, Woe to those who rise early in the morning,
  • 00:20:21.040 --> 00:20:24.290
  • that they may follow intoxicating drink;
  • 00:20:25.020 --> 00:20:28.000
  • who continue until night, till wine inflames them!
  • 00:20:28.030 --> 00:20:32.050
  • The harp and the strings, the tambourine and flute,
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:34.210
  • and wine are in their feasts; but they do not regard
  • 00:20:34.240 --> 00:20:38.120
  • the work of the Lord, nor consider the operation
  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:40.100
  • of His hands.
  • 00:20:40.130 --> 00:20:41.110
  • Therefore my people have gone into captivity,
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:44.030
  • because they have no knowledge; their honorable men
  • 00:20:44.060 --> 00:20:47.020
  • are famished, and their multitude dried up
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:48.260
  • with thirst. Watch 14 carefully.
  • 00:20:48.290 --> 00:20:51.080
  • It uses the Old Testament word for hell, which is Sheol.
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:54.140
  • Therefore Sheol, watch, has enlarged itself.
  • 00:20:54.170 --> 00:21:02.190
  • Hell added on. The devil added on to hell.
  • 00:21:02.220 --> 00:21:05.250
  • Therefore Sheol... God didn't do it.
  • 00:21:05.280 --> 00:21:11.170
  • Sheol has enlarged itself and opened its mouth
  • 00:21:11.200 --> 00:21:17.050
  • beyond measure; their glory and their multitude and their pomp,
  • 00:21:17.080 --> 00:21:20.220
  • and he who is jubilant, shall descend into it.
  • 00:21:20.250 --> 00:21:25.030
  • Hell was enlarged by necessity, not by design.
  • 00:21:25.060 --> 00:21:31.260
  • I'm gonna say that again.
  • 00:21:31.290 --> 00:21:34.000
  • I'd love for you to never forget that.
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:36.200
  • Hell was enlarged by necessity, not by design,
  • 00:21:36.230 --> 00:21:42.080
  • and hell enlarged itself.
  • 00:21:42.110 --> 00:21:44.250
  • Satan added on to it, because he got a third
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:48.210
  • of the angels to follow him, and then he got people
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:51.090
  • to follow him. That's why.
  • 00:21:51.120 --> 00:21:54.220
  • So we say, Well, why would a loving God, you know,
  • 00:21:54.250 --> 00:21:57.250
  • send anyone to hell?
  • 00:21:57.280 --> 00:21:58.260
  • It's normally asked very rhetorically,
  • 00:21:58.290 --> 00:22:03.230
  • very angrily, very... I had a really good word
  • 00:22:03.260 --> 00:22:09.090
  • somewhere in my notes.
  • 00:22:09.120 --> 00:22:11.190
  • Accusingly, that was a good word.
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:14.080
  • All right.
  • 00:22:14.110 --> 00:22:16.200
  • You all just edit that part there.
  • 00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:18.220
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:22:18.250 --> 00:22:20.200
  • Let me just give you three, the three major.
  • 00:22:22.000 --> 00:22:24.260
  • There are many more stories of rejection of God in the Bible.
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:27.160
  • I want to give you the three major stories
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:29.280
  • of the rejection of God.
  • 00:22:30.010 --> 00:22:31.110
  • The first is in Isaiah 14 and Revelation 12,
  • 00:22:31.140 --> 00:22:34.020
  • also Ezekiel 28.
  • 00:22:34.050 --> 00:22:35.100
  • Lucifer was the worship leader in heaven.
  • 00:22:35.130 --> 00:22:38.250
  • He led a third of the angels to rebel against God.
  • 00:22:38.280 --> 00:22:42.250
  • Here's what I want you to remember about that.
  • 00:22:42.280 --> 00:22:45.110
  • They weren't born into a bad situation.
  • 00:22:45.140 --> 00:22:51.220
  • God never abused them, never treated them bad,
  • 00:22:51.250 --> 00:22:55.290
  • and a third of them rejected God.
  • 00:22:56.020 --> 00:22:59.100
  • That's the first rebellious story, rejection of God.
  • 00:22:59.130 --> 00:23:03.180
  • The second one is found in Genesis 3.
  • 00:23:03.210 --> 00:23:07.070
  • God creates Adam and Eve - perfect bodies, perfect health,
  • 00:23:07.100 --> 00:23:11.230
  • perfect garden, perfect marriage,
  • 00:23:11.260 --> 00:23:15.090
  • perfect relationship with God and perfect relationship
  • 00:23:15.120 --> 00:23:17.270
  • with each other, and they rebel against God.
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:22.000
  • The third one's even worse than that.
  • 00:23:22.030 --> 00:23:28.220
  • He sent His own Son to this earth,
  • 00:23:28.250 --> 00:23:33.060
  • who explained to them the Scriptures,
  • 00:23:33.090 --> 00:23:37.070
  • who did nothing but good for 33-1/2 years,
  • 00:23:37.100 --> 00:23:42.080
  • 3-1/2 years in public ministry.
  • 00:23:42.110 --> 00:23:44.100
  • Healed people, raised people from the dead,
  • 00:23:44.130 --> 00:23:47.260
  • loved on people, had dinner with sinners,
  • 00:23:47.290 --> 00:23:52.160
  • never acted prideful or arrogant.
  • 00:23:52.190 --> 00:23:58.220
  • And we rejected Him so much that we tortured Him to death,
  • 00:23:58.250 --> 00:24:04.140
  • the inexcusable rebellious rejection of the loving God.
  • 00:24:04.170 --> 00:24:09.250
  • Okay, do you want me to answer the question,
  • 00:24:09.280 --> 00:24:11.110
  • why would a loving God send anyone to hell?
  • 00:24:11.140 --> 00:24:14.030
  • It's a simple, simple answer.
  • 00:24:14.060 --> 00:24:16.100
  • He wouldn't. He wouldn't.
  • 00:24:16.130 --> 00:24:20.120
  • People send themselves to hell.
  • 00:24:20.150 --> 00:24:22.060
  • ROBERT: There really is a heaven and there really is a hell,
  • 00:24:23.050 --> 00:24:26.270
  • but here's the good news.
  • 00:24:27.000 --> 00:24:28.240
  • There really is a Savior who gave His life
  • 00:24:28.270 --> 00:24:32.200
  • so that we could spend eternity in heaven,
  • 00:24:32.230 --> 00:24:35.150
  • and the choice is yours.
  • 00:24:35.180 --> 00:24:37.040
  • I don't believe you're watching today by accident.
  • 00:24:37.070 --> 00:24:39.270
  • I believe that God's drawing you today
  • 00:24:40.000 --> 00:24:42.240
  • to give your life to Him.
  • 00:24:42.270 --> 00:24:44.030
  • He's trying to draw you to Himself,
  • 00:24:44.060 --> 00:24:46.040
  • and that's why you heard this specific message today.
  • 00:24:46.070 --> 00:24:49.270
  • So, I'd like to encourage you to simply give control
  • 00:24:50.000 --> 00:24:52.260
  • of your life to Jesus right now. Give Him everything.
  • 00:24:52.290 --> 00:24:56.000
  • Don't hold back anything.
  • 00:24:56.030 --> 00:24:57.170
  • And we would love to help you any way that we can.
  • 00:24:57.200 --> 00:25:00.210

  • in your new life with the Lord.

  • But, you're watching today because God loves you
  • 00:25:05.240 --> 00:25:10.110
  • and He wants you to spend eternity in heaven with Him.
  • 00:25:10.140 --> 00:25:14.050
  • So, give your life to Jesus today.
  • 00:25:14.080 --> 00:25:17.060
