  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:16.240 --> 00:00:18.200
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE EVERYTHING IN LIFE
  • 00:00:18.210 --> 00:00:21.040
  • WAS WORKING AGAINST YOU?
  • 00:00:21.050 --> 00:00:22.290
  • EVERY PERSON?
  • 00:00:23.000 --> 00:00:24.050
  • EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE?
  • 00:00:24.060 --> 00:00:25.250
  • MAYBE EVEN GOD?
  • 00:00:25.260 --> 00:00:27.270
  • WELL, ACCORDING THE BIBLE, THAT'S EXACTLY HOW SATAN
  • 00:00:27.280 --> 00:00:31.000
  • WANTS YOU TO FEEL!
  • 00:00:31.010 --> 00:00:32.150

  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:51.170 --> 00:00:58.240
  • THE TEMPTATION THAT ASSAULTS YOU.
  • 00:00:58.250 --> 00:01:01.000
  • THE DEPRESSION OR ILLNESS THAT PULLS YOU DOWN.
  • 00:01:01.010 --> 00:01:03.220
  • THE PRIVATE DOUBTS YOU HARBOR ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:01:03.230 --> 00:01:06.180
  • THOSE AREN'T JUST NORMAL PARTS OF EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:01:06.190 --> 00:01:09.060
  • THEY'RE WEAPONS IN SATAN'S SINISTER BATTLE AGAINST YOUR
  • 00:01:09.070 --> 00:01:11.250
  • FAITH, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:01:11.260 --> 00:01:14.170
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO DO MORE THAN SIMPLY HUNKER DOWN
  • 00:01:14.180 --> 00:01:17.100
  • AND DO THE BEST YOU CAN TO DEFLECT SATAN'S ATTACKS.
  • 00:01:17.110 --> 00:01:20.130
  • HE INVITES YOU TO JOIN HIM IN THE MARCH AGAINST SATAN AND

  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:03.010 --> 00:02:09.240
  • YOU MAY NOT RECOGNIZE THE NAME MUHAMMAD AL-SAHHAF
  • 00:02:09.250 --> 00:02:14.200
  • BUT YOU PROBABLY KNOW HIM OR
  • 00:02:14.210 --> 00:02:16.110
  • REMEMBER HIM BY HIS NICKNAME,
  • 00:02:16.120 --> 00:02:19.110
  • BAGHDAD BOB.
  • 00:02:19.120 --> 00:02:21.040
  • REMEMBER BAGHDAD BOB FROM THE IRAQI CONFLICT
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:24.160
  • A FEW YEARS AGO?
  • 00:02:24.170 --> 00:02:26.090
  • HE WAS THE MINISTER OF INFORMATION,
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:28.270
  • MORE LIKE THE MINISTER OF DISINFORMATION,
  • 00:02:28.280 --> 00:02:31.290
  • FOR THE NATION OF IRAQ DURING THE FINAL DAYS
  • 00:02:32.000 --> 00:02:34.100
  • OF SADDAM HUSSEIN'S RULE,
  • 00:02:34.110 --> 00:02:36.050
  • AND HIS JOB WAS TO KEEP THE PEOPLE'S SPIRITS UP
  • 00:02:36.060 --> 00:02:39.180
  • EVEN THOUGH IRAQ WAS FACING DEFEAT
  • 00:02:39.190 --> 00:02:42.070
  • BY AMERICAN TROOPS.
  • 00:02:42.080 --> 00:02:43.220
  • AND SO HE SPEWED OUT ALL KIND OF LIES TO
  • 00:02:43.230 --> 00:02:46.270
  • BOLSTER THE SPIRITS OF THE IRAQI PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:50.060
  • ON APRIL 6, 2003, AFTER AMERICAN FORCES HAD
  • 00:02:50.070 --> 00:02:53.250
  • SEIZED CONTROL OF BAGHDAD'S INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT,
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:57.190
  • BAGHDAD BOB GOT ON TELEVISION AND SAID,
  • 00:02:57.200 --> 00:03:00.110
  • "WE BUTCHERED THE AMERICAN TROOPS AT THE AIRPORT AND
  • 00:03:00.120 --> 00:03:03.270
  • WE REMAIN VICTORIOUS."
  • 00:03:03.280 --> 00:03:05.200
  • THE NEXT DAY WHEN AMERICAN TROOPS STORMED ONE OF
  • 00:03:05.210 --> 00:03:08.230
  • SADDAM'S PALACES, AGAIN BAGHDAD BOB CAME ON TELEVISION AND
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:13.110
  • HE SAID, "WE HAVE LOOKED AND THERE ARE NO
  • 00:03:13.120 --> 00:03:15.240
  • AMERICANS IN SIGHT ANYWHERE."
  • 00:03:15.250 --> 00:03:19.020
  • BAGHDAD BOB BECAME THE FODDER FOR LATE NIGHT
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:21.260
  • COMICS ON TELEVISION.
  • 00:03:21.270 --> 00:03:24.070
  • PRESIDENT BUSH WAS ASKED BY AN INTERVIEW,
  • 00:03:24.080 --> 00:03:26.150
  • "WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT BAGHDAD BOB?"
  • 00:03:26.160 --> 00:03:28.270
  • HE CHUCKLED AND HE SAID,
  • 00:03:28.280 --> 00:03:30.020
  • "HE'S QUITE A CHARACTER, ISN'T HE?"
  • 00:03:30.030 --> 00:03:33.080
  • YOU KNOW SATAN IS A LOT LIKE BAGHDAD BOB.
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:37.050
  • EVEN THOUGH SATAN WAS SOUNDLY DEFEATED AT THE
  • 00:03:37.060 --> 00:03:40.270
  • CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST, EVEN THOUGH THE DATE OF
  • 00:03:40.280 --> 00:03:43.280
  • HIS EXECUTION IS ON GOD'S CALENDAR RIGHT
  • 00:03:43.290 --> 00:03:46.140
  • NOW, HE STILL IS SPEWING OUT THE LIES
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:49.200
  • THAT HE IS STILL IN CONTROL
  • 00:03:49.210 --> 00:03:52.000
  • OF THIS UNIVERSE.
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:54.030
  • BUT UNLIKE BAGHDAD BOB, THERE'S NOTHING FUNNY
  • 00:03:54.040 --> 00:03:57.090
  • ABOUT SATAN AT ALL.
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:03:59.140
  • HIS LIES ARE BLINDING UNBELIEVERS TO THE
  • 00:03:59.150 --> 00:04:02.140
  • TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:04:02.150 --> 00:04:04.170
  • SO THAT THEY WILL SPEND ETERNITY SEPARATED
  • 00:04:04.180 --> 00:04:06.260
  • FROM GOD IN HELL.
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:09.110
  • BUT UNBELIEVERS ARE NOT THE ONLY VICTIMS OF
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:12.110
  • SATAN'S PROPAGANDA.
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:14.210
  • HE ALSO ASSAULTS CHRISTIANS
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:17.070
  • WITH LIES AS WELL.
  • 00:04:17.080 --> 00:04:19.120
  • HE IS INTENT ON DEPRIVING YOU OF THE
  • 00:04:19.130 --> 00:04:21.080
  • BENEFITS OF LIVING AS A CHILD OF GOD.
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:24.060
  • HE WANTS TO DESTROY YOUR INFLUENCE FOR THE
  • 00:04:24.070 --> 00:04:26.050
  • KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:04:26.060 --> 00:04:27.120
  • HE WANTS TO DENY YOU THE REWARDS GOD HAS
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:30.000
  • PLANNED FOR YOU IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:32.220
  • THAT IS SATAN'S DEVIOUS OBJECTIVE FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:37.210
  • AND NOT ONLY DOES SATAN HAVE A DEVIOUS
  • 00:04:37.220 --> 00:04:39.270
  • OBJECTIVE TO DESTROY EVERYTHING VALUABLE TO
  • 00:04:39.280 --> 00:04:42.270
  • YOU, HE ALSO HAS A STRATEGY TO FULFILL
  • 00:04:42.280 --> 00:04:45.170
  • THOSE OBJECTIVES.
  • 00:04:45.180 --> 00:04:47.160
  • REMEMBER THE WORDS OF EPHESIANS 6:11.
  • 00:04:47.170 --> 00:04:50.110
  • PAUL SAID, "PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD,
  • 00:04:50.120 --> 00:04:54.190
  • THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO STAND FIRM AGAINST THE
  • 00:04:54.200 --> 00:04:58.020
  • SCHEMES OF THE DEVIL."
  • 00:04:58.030 --> 00:05:00.240
  • THAT WORD "SCHEMES" IN GREEK IS THE WORD METHODEIA.
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:04.180
  • IT REFERS TO AN ANIMAL, A PREDATORY ANIMAL THAT
  • 00:05:04.190 --> 00:05:08.110
  • IS STALKING ITS PREY.
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:11.050
  • YOU KNOW A PREDATOR DOESN'T NECESSARILY
  • 00:05:11.060 --> 00:05:12.270
  • POUNCE ON ITS VICTIM IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:14.290
  • IT MAY STALK ITS PREY FOR DAYS AND THEN
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:18.080
  • FINALLY ATTACK WHEN THE MOMENT IS JUST RIGHT.
  • 00:05:18.090 --> 00:05:21.200
  • AND A PREDATOR DOESN'T USE THE SAME STRATEGY
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:23.230
  • ON EVERY ANIMAL EITHER.
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:25.160
  • DIFFERENT VICTIMS REQUIRE
  • 00:05:25.170 --> 00:05:27.230
  • DIFFERENT STRATEGIES.
  • 00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:29.050
  • SO IT IS WITH SATAN.
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:30.230
  • THE BIBLE SAYS HE HAS A METHOD.
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:33.050
  • HE HAS A STRATEGY TO DESTROY EVERYTHING
  • 00:05:33.060 --> 00:05:37.110
  • IMPORTANT IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:37.120 --> 00:05:39.250
  • HE HAS DEVELOPED A UNIQUE PLAN TO DIVIDE
  • 00:05:39.260 --> 00:05:43.060
  • YOUR FAMILY, TO NOT ONLY THAT BUT DISRUPT
  • 00:05:43.070 --> 00:05:46.080
  • YOU RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND TO DESTROY
  • 00:05:46.090 --> 00:05:49.040
  • YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY.
  • 00:05:49.050 --> 00:05:51.000
  • AND THAT'S WHY THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:05:51.010 --> 00:05:52.170
  • "BE ON GUARD.
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:53.160
  • BE ON THE ALERT FOR YOUR ADVERSARY.
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:55.100
  • THE DEVIL PROWLS ABOUT LIKE A ROARING LION,
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:58.200
  • SEEKING SOMEONE TO DEVOUR."
  • 00:05:58.210 --> 00:06:00.080
  • THINK ABOUT THIS FOR A MOMENT.
  • 00:06:00.090 --> 00:06:01.240
  • DO YOU REALIZE THAT IN THE PIT OF HELL RIGHT
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:03.240
  • NOW, THERE'S A BLUEPRINT.
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:07.190
  • IT'S A BLUEPRINT THAT HAS YOUR NAME
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:09.220
  • AT THE TOP OF IT.
  • 00:06:09.230 --> 00:06:11.170
  • IT IS SATAN'S PERSONALIZED,
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:14.070
  • UNIQUE PLAN TO DESTROY YOU.
  • 00:06:14.080 --> 00:06:18.130
  • AND TODAY AND NEXT WEEK WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:20.230
  • SATAN'S THREE-PRONGED STRATEGY TO DESTROY
  • 00:06:20.240 --> 00:06:24.100
  • YOUR FAITH, YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:06:24.110 --> 00:06:26.270
  • AND YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:06:26.280 --> 00:06:27.200
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES TODAY,
  • 00:06:27.210 --> 00:06:28.270
  • TURN TO JOB 1.
  • 00:06:28.280 --> 00:06:31.100
  • JOB 1.
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:33.200
  • SATAN'S FIRST STRATEGY FOR CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:37.020
  • TO DESTROY A CHRISTIAN'S FAMILY,
  • 00:06:37.030 --> 00:06:39.060
  • FAITH, AND FUTURE, IS TO DISCOURAGE YOU FROM
  • 00:06:39.070 --> 00:06:42.090
  • WORSHIPPING GOD.
  • 00:06:42.100 --> 00:06:43.080
  • WRITE THAT DOWN ON YOUR OUTLINE.
  • 00:06:43.090 --> 00:06:45.040
  • HE WANTS TO DISCOURAGE YOU FROM WORSHIPPING GOD.
  • 00:06:45.050 --> 00:06:48.270
  • YOU AND I ARE BIT PLAYERS IN AN ETERNAL
  • 00:06:48.280 --> 00:06:52.050
  • DRAMA THAT BEGAN MANY YEARS AGO.
  • 00:06:52.060 --> 00:06:54.100
  • REMEMBER MY STORY ABOUT BEING AN EXTRA ON THE
  • 00:06:54.110 --> 00:06:56.140
  • TELEVISION SHOW "DALLAS"?
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:58.090
  • I WAS A BIT PLAYER IN A GREAT DRAMA.
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:07:01.210
  • IN A VERY REAL SENSE, YOU AND I ARE BIT
  • 00:07:01.220 --> 00:07:04.040
  • PLAYERS IN A VERY REAL ETERNAL DRAMA THAT
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:06.290
  • BEGAN EONS AGO.
  • 00:07:07.000 --> 00:07:09.180
  • IT'S WHEN SATAN, WHO WAS AT ONE TIME GOD'S
  • 00:07:09.190 --> 00:07:13.040
  • CHIEF OF STAFF, CHOSE TO REBEL AGAINST THE
  • 00:07:13.050 --> 00:07:16.110
  • CREATOR, AND RIGHT NOW THAT DRAMA CONTINUES.
  • 00:07:16.120 --> 00:07:20.270
  • NOW IF THIS WHOLE IDEA THAT YOU AND I ARE IN A
  • 00:07:20.280 --> 00:07:23.200
  • PLAY, A PRODUCTION, AND THE VAST UNSEEN
  • 00:07:23.210 --> 00:07:26.160
  • AUDIENCE IS WATCHING THIS,
  • 00:07:26.170 --> 00:07:28.140
  • IF THAT SEEMS A LITTLE FAR-FETCHED TO YOU,
  • 00:07:28.150 --> 00:07:31.020
  • CONSIDER THE STORY OF JOB.
  • 00:07:31.030 --> 00:07:33.210
  • LOOK AT JOB 1:1, FOR WE SEE SATAN USING
  • 00:07:33.220 --> 00:07:37.280
  • DISCOURAGEMENT TO HUMILIATE GOD BEFORE
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:41.000
  • ALL OF HIS CREATION.
  • 00:07:41.010 --> 00:07:42.100
  • JOB 1:1 SAYS, "THERE WAS MAN IN THE LAND OF
  • 00:07:42.110 --> 00:07:45.040
  • UZ WHOSE NAME WAS JOB, AND THAT MAN WAS
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:48.110
  • BLAMELESS, UPRIGHT, FEARING GOD,
  • 00:07:48.120 --> 00:07:51.270
  • AND TURNING AWAY FROM EVIL."
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:55.130
  • AND THEN WE GET A GLIMPSE OF THE DRAMA
  • 00:07:55.140 --> 00:07:58.140
  • BEHIND THE DRAMA THAT'S GOING ON IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:07:58.150 --> 00:08:02.150
  • GOD POINTING TO EARTH DIRECTED SATAN'S
  • 00:08:02.160 --> 00:08:04.250
  • ATTENTION TO THIS MAIN CHARACTER ON
  • 00:08:04.260 --> 00:08:06.150
  • THE STAGE NAMED JOB.
  • 00:08:06.160 --> 00:08:08.050
  • LOOK AT VERSE EIGHT, "THEN THE LORD SAID TO
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:10.040
  • SATAN, "HAVE YOU CONSIDERED MY SERVANT
  • 00:08:10.050 --> 00:08:12.160
  • JOB FOR THERE IS NO ONE LIKE HIM ON THE EARTH,
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:15.130
  • A BLAMELESS, AN UPRIGHT MAN,
  • 00:08:15.140 --> 00:08:17.280
  • FEARING GOD AND TURNING AWAY FROM EVIL?"" SATAN
  • 00:08:17.290 --> 00:08:21.280
  • WASN'T ABOUT TO LET GOD BE PROUD OF HIS
  • 00:08:21.290 --> 00:08:24.210
  • CREATION, AND SO SATAN SAYS,
  • 00:08:24.220 --> 00:08:26.200
  • "WELL OF COURSE HE WORSHIPS YOU.
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:28.210
  • WHO WOULDN'T WORSHIP YOU AFTER ALL THE
  • 00:08:28.220 --> 00:08:30.240
  • THINGS YOU'VE DONE FOR JOB?
  • 00:08:30.250 --> 00:08:33.060
  • BUT YOU LET ME HAVE A FEW ROUNDS WITH HIM AND
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:36.190
  • I CAN TURN HIM AGAINST YOU."
  • 00:08:36.200 --> 00:08:39.270
  • SO GOD GRANTED SATAN LIMITED PERMISSION TO
  • 00:08:39.280 --> 00:08:42.150
  • ATTACK HIS SERVANT JOB.
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:43.240
  • LOOK AT VERSE 12.
  • 00:08:43.250 --> 00:08:45.000
  • "THEN THE LORD SAID TO SATAN,
  • 00:08:45.010 --> 00:08:46.180
  • "BEHOLD ALL THAT JOB HAS IS NOW IN YOUR POWER.
  • 00:08:46.190 --> 00:08:50.290
  • ONLY DO NOT PUT FORTH YOUR HANDS ON HIM","
  • 00:08:51.000 --> 00:08:53.070
  • THAT IS, DON'T KILL HIM.
  • 00:08:53.080 --> 00:08:54.250
  • SO SATAN DEPARTED FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE
  • 00:08:54.260 --> 00:08:57.150
  • LORD, AND FOR THE NEXT TWO CHAPTERS WE SEE
  • 00:08:57.160 --> 00:09:01.000
  • SATAN'S RELENTLESS ATTACKS AGAINST GOD'S
  • 00:09:01.010 --> 00:09:04.110
  • SERVANT JOB.
  • 00:09:04.120 --> 00:09:06.110
  • ONE DAY JOB WAS SITTING ON THE ASH HEAP OF HIS
  • 00:09:06.120 --> 00:09:10.130
  • INCINERATED POSSESSIONS,
  • 00:09:10.140 --> 00:09:12.160
  • HIS DEAD CHILDREN, HIS BROKEN HEALTH,
  • 00:09:12.170 --> 00:09:15.260
  • AND JOB'S WIFE CAME TO HIM--LOOK AT 2:9--AND
  • 00:09:15.270 --> 00:09:19.040
  • SAID, "DO YOU STILL HOLD FAST YOUR INTEGRITY?
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:23.140
  • WHY NOT CURSE GOD AND DIE?"
  • 00:09:23.150 --> 00:09:27.060
  • YOU SEE, THAT WAS SATAN'S OBJECTIVE,
  • 00:09:27.070 --> 00:09:28.250
  • TO TURN JOB AWAY FROM WORSHIPPING GOD BY
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:33.090
  • SENDING SO MANY TRAGEDIES INTO HIS LIFE
  • 00:09:33.100 --> 00:09:36.150
  • THAT JOB WOULD CONCLUDE WORSHIPPING GOD REALLY
  • 00:09:36.160 --> 00:09:39.270
  • ISN'T WORTHWHILE.
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:42.060
  • AND SATAN CONTINUES THAT SAME STRATEGY IN
  • 00:09:42.070 --> 00:09:45.100
  • YOUR LIFE TODAY.
  • 00:09:45.110 --> 00:09:47.010
  • EVEN THOUGH HIS POWER TO DESTROY IS
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:48.280
  • CONSIDERABLE, IT'S ALSO LIMITED.
  • 00:09:48.290 --> 00:09:51.120
  • LIKE MARTIN LUTHER SAID,
  • 00:09:51.130 --> 00:09:52.140
  • "THE DEVIL IS STILL GOD'S DEVIL."
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:54.260
  • HE IS STILL UNDER GOD'S CONTROL,
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:56.200
  • BUT GOD FOR SOME MYSTERIOUS REASON,
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:59.150
  • HAS ALLOWED SATAN TO HAVE LIMITED ACCESS
  • 00:09:59.160 --> 00:10:02.060
  • INTO YOUR LIFE AND INTO MY LIFE.
  • 00:10:02.070 --> 00:10:04.040
  • REALLY IT'S NOT A MYSTERY WHY
  • 00:10:04.050 --> 00:10:05.090
  • HE HAS ALLOWED THAT.
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:06.230
  • YOU SEE BOTH JOB AND GOD UNDERSTOOD THAT
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:09.150
  • UNTESTED FAITH IS REALLY NO FAITH AT ALL.
  • 00:10:09.160 --> 00:10:14.040
  • GOD USES TESTS TO STRENGTHEN US,
  • 00:10:14.050 --> 00:10:17.120
  • BUT ALSO TO PROVE BEFORE THE UNSEEN WORLD
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:19.200
  • THAT WE ARE REALLY HIS FOLLOWERS.
  • 00:10:19.210 --> 00:10:22.230
  • SATAN WILL DO EVERYTHING HE CAN TO
  • 00:10:22.240 --> 00:10:25.080
  • BRING CALAMITY, TO BRING FINANCIAL
  • 00:10:25.090 --> 00:10:27.120
  • REVERSAL, TO BRING SICKNESS,
  • 00:10:27.130 --> 00:10:28.290
  • TO BRING DISRUPTION IN YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:10:29.000 --> 00:10:31.130
  • OR AMONG YOUR FRIENDS.
  • 00:10:31.140 --> 00:10:32.170
  • HE'LL USE ALL OF THOSE THINGS TO DISCOURAGE
  • 00:10:32.180 --> 00:10:36.020
  • YOU FROM WORSHIPPING GOD AND THEREFORE
  • 00:10:36.030 --> 00:10:38.170
  • DISCREDIT THE CREATOR.
  • 00:10:38.180 --> 00:10:42.000
  • SATAN'S FIRST STRATEGY TO DESTROY EVERYTHING
  • 00:10:42.010 --> 00:10:45.190
  • IMPORTANT TO US IN LIFE IS TO DISCOURAGE US
  • 00:10:45.200 --> 00:10:48.180
  • FROM WORSHIPPING GOD, BUT HE HAS A SECOND
  • 00:10:48.190 --> 00:10:50.120
  • STRATEGY, AND THAT IS TO DISTRACT YOU
  • 00:10:50.130 --> 00:10:53.020
  • FROM SERVING GOD.
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:54.180
  • TO DISTRACT YOU FROM SERVING GOD.
  • 00:10:54.190 --> 00:10:56.080
  • IF SATAN CAN'T BE SUCCESSFUL IN CAUSING
  • 00:10:56.090 --> 00:10:58.070
  • YOU TO ALL AND OUT REJECT GOD,
  • 00:10:58.080 --> 00:11:00.230
  • MAYBE HE CAN JUST GET YOU TO IGNORE GOD.
  • 00:11:00.240 --> 00:11:04.070
  • AND THAT'S WHAT HE DOES THROUGH DISTRACTIONS.
  • 00:11:04.080 --> 00:11:06.100
  • IT IS A VERY SUBTLE STRATEGY BUT ALSO A
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:09.290
  • VERY POWERFUL STRATEGY.
  • 00:11:10.000 --> 00:11:12.210
  • HOW CAN SATAN CAUSE YOU TO SIMPLY NEGLECT GOD
  • 00:11:12.220 --> 00:11:15.230
  • IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE?
  • 00:11:15.240 --> 00:11:17.220
  • IT'S THROUGH WHAT A GENERATION AGO USED TO
  • 00:11:17.230 --> 00:11:19.180
  • CALL "WORLDLINESS."
  • 00:11:19.190 --> 00:11:22.030
  • HAVE YOU HEARD THAT TERM BEFORE?
  • 00:11:22.040 --> 00:11:23.160
  • "WORLDLINESS"?
  • 00:11:23.170 --> 00:11:25.130
  • YOU KNOW WHEN WE THINK OF WORLDLINESS WE THINK ABOUT
  • 00:11:25.140 --> 00:11:28.130
  • OVERT SINS LIKE ADDICTIONS OR SEXUAL IMMORALITY.
  • 00:11:28.140 --> 00:11:31.150
  • MY DEFINITION OF WORLDLINESS IS A
  • 00:11:31.160 --> 00:11:34.040
  • PREOCCUPATION WITH THE DETAILS AND DELIGHTS OF
  • 00:11:34.050 --> 00:11:38.090
  • EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:11:38.100 --> 00:11:40.230
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT SATAN IS TRYING TO DO,
  • 00:11:40.240 --> 00:11:42.200
  • IS TO CAUSE YOU TO BE PREOCCUPIED WITH THE
  • 00:11:42.210 --> 00:11:46.180
  • DETAILS AND THE DELIGHTS
  • 00:11:46.190 --> 00:11:48.200
  • OF EVERY DAY LIFE.
  • 00:11:48.210 --> 00:11:49.240
  • SO FOCUSED ON THIS WORLD THAT YOU NEGLECT
  • 00:11:49.250 --> 00:11:52.290
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:11:53.000 --> 00:11:55.160
  • JESUS TALKED ABOUT THE POWER OF WORLDLINESS
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:59.020
  • IN LUKE 8.
  • 00:11:59.030 --> 00:12:00.140
  • REMEMBER LUKE 8 IS THE PARABLE OF THE SOILS.
  • 00:12:00.150 --> 00:12:04.140
  • AND JESUS WAS ANSWERING THE QUESTION,
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:06.010
  • "WHY IS IT THAT NOT EVERYONE WHO HEARS THE
  • 00:12:06.020 --> 00:12:08.120
  • WORD OF GOD RESPONDS TO THE WORD OF GOD?"
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:11.290
  • AND JESUS USED THIS AGRICULTURAL ANALOGY.
  • 00:12:12.000 --> 00:12:15.000
  • HE SAID IT'S LIKE SEED THAT IS CAST ONTO THE
  • 00:12:15.010 --> 00:12:18.070
  • SOIL, AND WHAT HAPPENS TO THAT SEED IS
  • 00:12:18.080 --> 00:12:21.110
  • DETERMINED BY WHAT KIND OF SOIL THE SEED FALLS ON.
  • 00:12:21.120 --> 00:12:26.170
  • THE SEED, OF COURSE, REPRESENTED
  • 00:12:26.180 --> 00:12:28.010
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:28.020 --> 00:12:29.170
  • THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF SOIL REPRESENTED THE
  • 00:12:29.180 --> 00:12:32.200
  • DIFFERENT RESPONSES, DIFFERENT CONDITIONS,
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:35.190
  • OF THE HUMAN HEART.
  • 00:12:35.200 --> 00:12:37.020
  • BUT THE THIRD KIND OF SOIL IS THE ONE THAT'S
  • 00:12:37.030 --> 00:12:39.030
  • RELEVANT TO OUR DISCUSSION TODAY.
  • 00:12:39.040 --> 00:12:40.240
  • LOOK AT LUKE 8:14.
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:43.100
  • "THE SEED WHICH FELL AMONG THE THORNS.
  • 00:12:43.110 --> 00:12:46.150
  • THESE ARE THE ONES WHO HAVE HEARD,
  • 00:12:46.160 --> 00:12:48.250
  • AND AS THEY GO ON THEIR WAY,
  • 00:12:48.260 --> 00:12:50.140
  • THEY ARE CHOKED WITH WORRIES AND RICHES AND
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:54.280
  • PLEASURES OF THIS LIFE AND THEY BRING
  • 00:12:54.290 --> 00:12:57.270
  • NO FRUIT TO MATURITY."
  • 00:12:57.280 --> 00:13:00.290
  • JESUS IS TALKING ABOUT A SEED THAT FALLS ONTO
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:03.240
  • THE GROUND.
  • 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:04.140
  • IT PENETRATES THE SOIL.
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:05.160
  • IT BEGINS TO GROW BUT UNDERNEATH THE SOIL
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:09.050
  • THERE IS A VAST NETWORK OF WEEDS,
  • 00:13:09.060 --> 00:13:12.230
  • AND THOSE WEEDS WRAP THEMSELVES AROUND THE
  • 00:13:12.240 --> 00:13:15.140
  • ROOT OF THE PLANT AND THEY STRANGLE OUT THE
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:17.290
  • LIFE OF THE PLANT.
  • 00:13:18.000 --> 00:13:20.090
  • NOW JESUS USES THAT ANALOGY TO DESCRIBE THE
  • 00:13:20.100 --> 00:13:22.200
  • PERSON WHO RECEIVES THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:13:22.210 --> 00:13:25.150
  • HE BEGINS TO GROW IN HIS FAITH BUT THEN
  • 00:13:25.160 --> 00:13:29.010
  • SOMETHING CHOKES OUT HIS LOVE,
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:32.020
  • HIS DEVOTION TO GOD.
  • 00:13:32.030 --> 00:13:34.100
  • AND JESUS MENTIONS THREE OF THOSE WEEDS,
  • 00:13:34.110 --> 00:13:37.100
  • THREE OF THOSE DISTRACTIONS,
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:40.080
  • THAT DESTROY OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:43.060
  • NOTICE WHAT THEY ARE.
  • 00:13:43.070 --> 00:13:44.180
  • FIRST OF ALL, HE MENTIONS WORRY.
  • 00:13:44.190 --> 00:13:47.270
  • WORRY CAN BE A TREMENDOUS DISTRACTION
  • 00:13:47.280 --> 00:13:50.220
  • TO YOU IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:13:50.230 --> 00:13:54.010
  • SOMEBODY HAS SAID THAT WORRY IS A THIN STREAM
  • 00:13:54.020 --> 00:13:57.080
  • TRICKLING THROUGH THE MIND,
  • 00:13:57.090 --> 00:13:58.240
  • THAT IF LEFT UNCHECKED WILL CUT A DEEP CHANNEL
  • 00:13:58.250 --> 00:14:02.110
  • THAT WILL DRAIN ALL OF YOUR THOUGHTS
  • 00:14:02.120 --> 00:14:04.110
  • AND EMOTIONS.
  • 00:14:04.120 --> 00:14:06.190
  • NOW WHERE DOES THAT EMOTION OF WORRY
  • 00:14:06.200 --> 00:14:08.080
  • COME FROM?
  • 00:14:08.090 --> 00:14:09.050
  • 2 TIMOTHY 1:7 SAYS, "FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN
  • 00:14:09.060 --> 00:14:12.140
  • US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR BUT OF LOVE,
  • 00:14:12.150 --> 00:14:14.170
  • POWER, AND OF A SOUND MIND."
  • 00:14:14.180 --> 00:14:17.060
  • SO IF IT DOESN'T COME FROM GOD,
  • 00:14:17.070 --> 00:14:18.220
  • WHERE DOES WORRY COME FROM?
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:22.050
  • HERE'S A HINT: I READ A STORY RECENTLY THAT
  • 00:14:22.060 --> 00:14:25.180
  • SAID THAT A STUDY SHOWED THAT NINETY-TWO
  • 00:14:25.190 --> 00:14:28.270
  • PERCENT OF ALL THE THINGS WE WORRY ABOUT
  • 00:14:28.280 --> 00:14:31.030
  • NEVER COME TRUE.
  • 00:14:31.040 --> 00:14:31.280
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT?
  • 00:14:31.290 --> 00:14:33.060
  • NINETY-TWO PERCENT OF THE THINGS WE WORRY
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:35.170
  • ABOUT NEVER COME TRUE.
  • 00:14:35.180 --> 00:14:37.070
  • THEY ARE LIES, THEY ARE DECEPTIONS.
  • 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:39.160
  • JOHN 8:44 SAYS SATAN IS A LIAR,
  • 00:14:39.170 --> 00:14:43.010
  • AND HE IS THE FATHER OF ALL LIES.
  • 00:14:43.020 --> 00:14:45.270
  • SO WHAT HE WANTS TO DO--IF HE CAN'T CAUSE
  • 00:14:45.280 --> 00:14:48.060
  • YOU TO OUT AND OUT REJECT GOD,
  • 00:14:48.070 --> 00:14:50.060
  • HE WANTS YOU TO BE DISTRACTED FROM GOD
  • 00:14:50.070 --> 00:14:54.040
  • BY WRAPPING HIS TENTACLES AROUND YOUR
  • 00:14:54.050 --> 00:14:56.210
  • EMOTIONS AND THOUGHTS THROUGH WORRY.
  • 00:14:56.220 --> 00:14:58.150
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS IS TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:14:58.160 --> 00:15:00.150
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT A CHRISTIAN WHO IS CHOKED
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:03.100
  • TO DEATH BY THE WORRIES OF THIS WORLD.
  • 00:15:03.110 --> 00:15:07.240
  • HE HAS A SECOND DISTRACTION THAT HE
  • 00:15:07.250 --> 00:15:09.120
  • USES, AND THAT IS RICHES.
  • 00:15:09.130 --> 00:15:11.170
  • JESUS TALKED ABOUT WORRIES AND THEN HE
  • 00:15:11.180 --> 00:15:14.020
  • TALKED ABOUT RICHES.
  • 00:15:14.030 --> 00:15:17.110
  • NOW I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING,
  • 00:15:17.120 --> 00:15:18.230
  • MOST OF YOU ARE THINKING,
  • 00:15:18.240 --> 00:15:19.190
  • "PHEW, AT LEAST THAT DOESN'T APPLY TO ME.
  • 00:15:19.200 --> 00:15:21.270
  • OF ALL THE THINGS I WORRY ABOUT,
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:23.140
  • HAVING TOO MUCH MONEY IS NOT ONE OF THEM."
  • 00:15:23.150 --> 00:15:26.230
  • YOU MIGHT WANT TO THINK AGAIN.
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:30.050
  • SEE THE FACT IS, EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY NOT HAVE
  • 00:15:30.060 --> 00:15:32.280
  • A SIX FIGURE INCOME OR A SEVEN FIGURE NET
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:35.060
  • WORTH, COMPARED WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD
  • 00:15:35.070 --> 00:15:37.210
  • ALMOST EVERY ONE OF US IN THIS ROOM
  • 00:15:37.220 --> 00:15:39.150
  • IS WEALTHY.
  • 00:15:39.160 --> 00:15:41.100
  • THE FACT IS, IF YOU HAVE A ROOF OVER YOUR
  • 00:15:41.110 --> 00:15:42.280
  • HEAD TONIGHT, IF YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR NEXT
  • 00:15:42.290 --> 00:15:45.160
  • MEAL IS COMING FROM, IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN TWO
  • 00:15:45.170 --> 00:15:48.110
  • CHANGES OF CLOTHES, YOU ARE WEALTHY BY THE
  • 00:15:48.120 --> 00:15:51.280
  • WORLD'S STANDARD.
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:54.150
  • BUT EVEN IF YOU DON'T ACCEPT THAT PROPOSITION
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:56.130
  • THAT YOU'RE WEALTHY, WHAT I WANT YOU TO
  • 00:15:56.140 --> 00:15:57.270
  • UNDERSTAND FROM WHAT JESUS WAS SAYING IS
  • 00:15:57.280 --> 00:16:00.100
  • IT'S NOT ONLY HAVING TOO MUCH MONEY THAT CAN
  • 00:16:00.110 --> 00:16:02.240
  • BE A DISTRACTION IN LIFE AND IN YOUR
  • 00:16:02.250 --> 00:16:04.270
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:16:04.280 --> 00:16:06.140
  • HAVING TWO LITTLE MONEY CAN ALSO BE A POWERFUL
  • 00:16:06.150 --> 00:16:10.160
  • DISTRACTION IN LIFE, AND THAT WE ALL KNOW
  • 00:16:10.170 --> 00:16:13.110
  • THE VERSE--MATTHEW 6:24--YOU CANNOT SERVE
  • 00:16:13.120 --> 00:16:17.140
  • GOD AND MONEY.
  • 00:16:17.150 --> 00:16:18.140
  • HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THAT BEFORE?
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:19.290
  • YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MONEY.
  • 00:16:20.000 --> 00:16:21.220
  • WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE IS WHEN JESUS
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:24.150
  • PREACHED THAT TRUTH, HE WASN'T PREACHING TO
  • 00:16:24.160 --> 00:16:26.280
  • WEALTHY PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:26.290 --> 00:16:28.080
  • THAT'S PART OF THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT.
  • 00:16:28.090 --> 00:16:30.020
  • IT WAS GIVEN TO THE CHRIST FOLLOWERS,
  • 00:16:30.030 --> 00:16:32.160
  • TO THE MULTITUDES, TO THE POOR PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:16:32.170 --> 00:16:35.070
  • POPULATED THE EARTH.
  • 00:16:35.080 --> 00:16:36.210
  • JESUS SAID TO THE POOR PEOPLE,
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:38.130
  • "YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MONEY."
  • 00:16:38.140 --> 00:16:41.040
  • AND THAT SCENE IN THE NEXT VERSE,
  • 00:16:41.050 --> 00:16:42.190
  • MATTHEW 6:25 WHEN HE SAID,
  • 00:16:42.200 --> 00:16:44.260
  • "FOR THIS REASON I SAY TO YOU,
  • 00:16:44.270 --> 00:16:47.140
  • DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT YOUR LIFE AS TO
  • 00:16:47.150 --> 00:16:50.090
  • WHAT YOU WILL EAT OR WHAT YOU WILL DRINK NOR
  • 00:16:50.100 --> 00:16:53.070
  • FOR YOUR BODY AS TO WHAT YOU WILL PUT ON.
  • 00:16:53.080 --> 00:16:55.220
  • IS NOT LIFE MORE THAN FOOD AND THE BODY MORE
  • 00:16:55.230 --> 00:17:00.080
  • THAN CLOTHING?" JESUS WASN'T SPEAKING TO
  • 00:17:00.090 --> 00:17:03.120
  • PEOPLE WHO HAD TOO MUCH.
  • 00:17:03.130 --> 00:17:05.220
  • HE WAS SPEAKING TO PEOPLE WHO HAD TOO
  • 00:17:05.230 --> 00:17:07.190
  • LITTLE IN THEIR MINDS, AND THEY WERE WORRIED
  • 00:17:07.200 --> 00:17:10.030
  • ABOUT WHERE THEIR NEXT MEAL WAS COMING FROM,
  • 00:17:10.040 --> 00:17:12.020
  • HOW THEY WERE GOING TO FEED THEMSELVES OR
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:13.290
  • CLOTHE THEIR CHILDREN.
  • 00:17:14.000 --> 00:17:15.160
  • AND HE SAID, "YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS
  • 00:17:15.170 --> 00:17:19.020
  • OVER CONCERN ABOUT MONEY CAN STRANGLE OUT
  • 00:17:19.030 --> 00:17:23.060
  • YOUR LOVE FOR GOD.
  • 00:17:23.070 --> 00:17:25.100
  • NO MAN CAN SERVE GOD AND MONEY."
  • 00:17:25.110 --> 00:17:30.050
  • NOW, THAT WAS TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO.
  • 00:17:30.060 --> 00:17:32.180
  • TWO THOUSAND YEARS LATER,
  • 00:17:32.190 --> 00:17:33.220
  • NOT THAT MUCH HAS CHANGED.
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:35.250
  • MOST OF US IN THIS ROOM TODAY,
  • 00:17:35.260 --> 00:17:37.110
  • MOST OF US WATCHING ON TELEVISION,
  • 00:17:37.120 --> 00:17:39.130
  • WE'RE NOT CONCERNED ABOUT HAVING
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:40.230
  • TOO MUCH MONEY.
  • 00:17:40.240 --> 00:17:42.140
  • WE'RE CONCERNED THAT WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH,
  • 00:17:42.150 --> 00:17:44.150
  • AREN'T WE?
  • 00:17:44.160 --> 00:17:45.210
  • NOW, THE TRUTH IS THERE IS GOOD,
  • 00:17:45.220 --> 00:17:48.120
  • SOUND FINANCIAL PLANNING THAT WE OUGHT
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:50.170
  • TO ENGAGE IN, BUT WHEN IT IS ROOTED IN FEAR,
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:55.050
  • PARALYZING FEAR THAT WE'RE NOT GONNA HAVE
  • 00:17:55.060 --> 00:17:57.170
  • ENOUGH, IT BECOMES A DISTRACTION TO US
  • 00:17:57.180 --> 00:18:00.200
  • FROM SERVING GOD.
  • 00:18:00.210 --> 00:18:03.070
  • THAT'S WHY A CONCERN FOR MONEY--NOT JUST
  • 00:18:03.080 --> 00:18:06.160
  • HAVING TOO MUCH, BUT HAVING TOO LITTLE IS AN
  • 00:18:06.170 --> 00:18:10.060
  • ENEMY TO OUR FAITH.
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:12.160
  • PAUL SAID IT THIS WAY IN 1 TIMOTHY 6:10.
  • 00:18:12.170 --> 00:18:14.200
  • REMEMBER WHAT HE SAID?
  • 00:18:14.210 --> 00:18:15.200
  • HE SAID, "FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY"--HE DIDN'T
  • 00:18:15.210 --> 00:18:18.110
  • SAY "FOR MONEY," HE SAID "THE LOVE OF
  • 00:18:18.120 --> 00:18:20.140
  • MONEY," THE OBSESSION WITH MONEY--"IS THE
  • 00:18:20.150 --> 00:18:23.020
  • ROOT OF ALL SORTS OF EVIL."
  • 00:18:23.030 --> 00:18:25.130
  • AND SOME BY LONGING FOR IT HAVE WANDERED AWAY
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:28.140
  • FROM THE FAITH AND PIERCED THEMSELVES
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:31.050
  • WITH MANY A PAIN.
  • 00:18:31.060 --> 00:18:33.280
  • JESUS MENTIONS A THIRD DISTRACTION FROM OUR
  • 00:18:33.290 --> 00:18:36.290
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:18:37.000 --> 00:18:37.270
  • HE TALKED ABOUT WORRIES,
  • 00:18:37.280 --> 00:18:39.090
  • HE TALKED ABOUT RICHES, THIRDLY,
  • 00:18:39.100 --> 00:18:40.230
  • HE TALKS ABOUT THE PLEASURES OF THIS LIFE.
  • 00:18:40.240 --> 00:18:44.290
  • NOW HEAR ME VERY CLEARLY HERE.
  • 00:18:45.000 --> 00:18:46.130
  • JESUS IS NOT CONDEMNING PLEASURE.
  • 00:18:46.140 --> 00:18:50.200
  • GOD MEANT MORE FOR USE THAN JUST SIMPLY TO
  • 00:18:50.210 --> 00:18:52.240
  • ENDURE THIS LIFE.
  • 00:18:52.250 --> 00:18:53.290
  • HE WANTS US TO ENJOY LIFE,
  • 00:18:54.000 --> 00:18:55.220
  • AND PLEASURE WHEN ENGAGED IN IN THE RIGHT
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:18:58.040
  • WAY CAN ACTUALLY DRAW US CLOSER TO GOD.
  • 00:18:58.050 --> 00:19:03.000
  • NOW SATAN UNDERSTANDS THAT.
  • 00:19:03.010 --> 00:19:05.080
  • HE UNDERSTANDS THE POWER OF PLEASURE TO
  • 00:19:05.090 --> 00:19:08.010
  • MAKE US LOVE GOD MORE AND TO BE MORE THANKFUL
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:10.230
  • TO HIM, SO WHAT SATAN WANTS TO DO IS TO
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:13.040
  • PERVERT, TO TWIST GOD'S PLAN FOR PLEASURE,
  • 00:19:13.050 --> 00:19:16.000
  • AND HE DOES SO BY HAVING CHRISTIANS GO TO
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:18.000
  • ONE OF TWO EXTREMES WHEN IT COMES TO THIS
  • 00:19:18.010 --> 00:19:20.060
  • TOPIC OF PLEASURE.
  • 00:19:20.070 --> 00:19:22.070
  • ONE EXTREME IS TO ABSTAIN FROM PLEASURE.
  • 00:19:22.080 --> 00:19:26.010
  • AND WHEN WE DO THAT WE DON'T REALIZE WE ARE
  • 00:19:26.020 --> 00:19:27.280
  • PLAYING INTO THE ENEMY'S PLAN
  • 00:19:27.290 --> 00:19:30.260
  • TO DESTROY OUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:30.270 --> 00:19:32.170
  • REMEMBER WHAT SOLOMON SAID IN
  • 00:19:32.180 --> 00:19:33.250
  • ECCLESIASTES 2:24-25?
  • 00:19:33.260 --> 00:19:37.170
  • HE SAID, "THERE'S NOTHING BETTER FOR A
  • 00:19:37.180 --> 00:19:39.060
  • MAN THAN TO EAT AND TO DRINK AND TO TELL
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:41.260
  • HIMSELF THAT HIS LABOR IS GOOD.
  • 00:19:41.270 --> 00:19:44.040
  • THIS ALSO I HAVE SEEN THAT IS FROM THE HAND
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:47.050
  • OF GOD, FOR WHO CAN EAT AND WHO CAN HAVE
  • 00:19:47.060 --> 00:19:50.010
  • ENJOYMENT WITHOUT HIM?"
  • 00:19:50.020 --> 00:19:53.150
  • SATAN'S ONE STRATEGY WITH PLEASURE IS TO GET
  • 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:56.220
  • YOU TO ABSTAIN FROM IT, AT LEAST FOR A WHILE.
  • 00:19:56.230 --> 00:19:59.230
  • BUT IF HE CAN'T SUCCEED THERE,
  • 00:19:59.240 --> 00:20:01.010
  • THEN THE OTHER EXTREME IS TO OVER
  • 00:20:01.020 --> 00:20:03.130
  • INDULGE IN PLEASURE.
  • 00:20:03.140 --> 00:20:05.260
  • THAT IS TO MAKE IT THE FOCUS OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:05.270 --> 00:20:09.120
  • PLEASURE CAN BE A DISTRACTION--A POWERFUL
  • 00:20:09.130 --> 00:20:12.000
  • DISTRACTION IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD,
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:15.060
  • AND MAYBE SOME OF YOU HERE TODAY,
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:17.140
  • YOU DON'T VACATION THAT MUCH,
  • 00:20:17.150 --> 00:20:19.000
  • YOU DON'T TAKE OUT OF TOWN TRIPS,
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:20.210
  • YOU'RE NOT INVOLVED IN THAT MANY SPORTS
  • 00:20:20.220 --> 00:20:22.200
  • ACTIVITIES, BUT MAYBE JUST MAYBE YOU'RE
  • 00:20:22.210 --> 00:20:24.240
  • WORKING YOURSELF TO DEATH RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:20:24.250 --> 00:20:27.000
  • YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TIME FOR THE
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:28.230
  • THINGS OF GOD BECAUSE YOU'RE WORKING YOURSELF
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:31.190
  • TO DEATH PLANNING FOR THAT MAGICAL AGE OF 65
  • 00:20:31.200 --> 00:20:36.020
  • WHEN YOU CAN ENTER THE GOLDEN YEARS
  • 00:20:36.030 --> 00:20:37.210
  • KNOWN AS RETIREMENT.
  • 00:20:37.220 --> 00:20:42.000
  • A PERIOD OF TIME IN LIFE WHEN YOU CAN SPEND
  • 00:20:42.010 --> 00:20:44.280
  • THE FINAL 20 YEARS OF YOUR LIFE DOING NOTHING
  • 00:20:44.290 --> 00:20:47.270
  • MORE PRODUCTIVE THAN WAKING UP EACH DAY AND
  • 00:20:47.280 --> 00:20:50.020
  • SAYING, "HOW AM I GOING TO
  • 00:20:50.030 --> 00:20:51.190
  • ENTERTAIN MYSELF TODAY?"
  • 00:20:51.200 --> 00:20:54.230
  • MAY I REMIND YOU, RETIREMENT IS NOT A
  • 00:20:54.240 --> 00:20:58.150
  • BIBLICAL CONCEPT.
  • 00:20:58.160 --> 00:21:01.110
  • WHEN YOU SPEND ANY PERIOD OF TIME,
  • 00:21:01.120 --> 00:21:03.050
  • WHETHER IT'S SIX MONTHS,
  • 00:21:03.060 --> 00:21:04.040
  • A YEAR, OR TEN YEARS, FOCUS SOLELY ON
  • 00:21:04.050 --> 00:21:06.260
  • YOURSELF, YOU ARE SOWING THE SEEDS FOR
  • 00:21:06.270 --> 00:21:09.020
  • SPIRITUAL DESTRUCTION IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:12.050
  • I'M NOT SAYING YOU HAVE TO KEEP WORKING AT THE
  • 00:21:12.060 --> 00:21:13.240
  • SAME JOB YOU WORKED AT ALL OF YOUR LIFE UNTIL
  • 00:21:13.250 --> 00:21:16.080
  • THE DAY YOU DROP.
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:17.090
  • WHAT I AM SAYING IS GOD WANTS EVERY PART OF
  • 00:21:17.100 --> 00:21:21.060
  • YOUR LIFE, EVERY PERIOD OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:21:21.070 --> 00:21:23.170
  • TO BE GOD FOCUSED, OTHERS FOCUSED,
  • 00:21:23.180 --> 00:21:26.050
  • AND NOT SELF-FOCUSED.
  • 00:21:26.060 --> 00:21:28.270
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO BE PRODUCTIVE UNTIL
  • 00:21:28.280 --> 00:21:31.150
  • THE DAY YOU DIE.
  • 00:21:31.160 --> 00:21:34.170
  • NOW SERIOUSLY, LET ME ASK YOU THIS MORNING:
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:38.060
  • WHAT HAS BECOME A DISTRACTION FOR YOU IN
  • 00:21:38.070 --> 00:21:40.250
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
  • 00:21:40.260 --> 00:21:42.030
  • WHAT IS IT RIGHT THIS VERY MOMENT THAT IS
  • 00:21:42.040 --> 00:21:44.280
  • DISTRACTING YOU FROM DEVELOPING YOUR
  • 00:21:44.290 --> 00:21:47.160
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
  • 00:21:47.170 --> 00:21:50.120
  • HAVE YOU ALLOWED THE "WHAT IFS" OF WORRY TO
  • 00:21:50.130 --> 00:21:52.060
  • STRANGLE OUT YOUR DESIRE TO KNOW GOD?
  • 00:21:52.070 --> 00:21:55.070
  • HAS MONEY, AN OBSESSION WITH MONEY--EITHER
  • 00:21:57.250 --> 00:22:00.180
  • EARNING IT, SPENDING IT,
  • 00:22:00.190 --> 00:22:01.190
  • OR SAVING IT--HAS THAT BECOME THE CENTRAL PART
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:03.190
  • OF YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:22:03.200 --> 00:22:05.110
  • HAVE YOU ALLOWED PLEASURE--THE PURSUIT
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:07.270
  • OF PLEASURE--TO BECOME THE GRAND OBSESSION
  • 00:22:07.280 --> 00:22:10.100
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:10.110 --> 00:22:12.090
  • YOU KNOW, IF WE'RE GOING TO DEFEAT SATAN'S
  • 00:22:12.100 --> 00:22:14.140
  • REAL PLAN TO DESTROY OUR LIFE--BY THE WAY,
  • 00:22:14.150 --> 00:22:17.190
  • HOW MANY OF YOU BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:22:17.200 --> 00:22:20.000
  • THAT SATAN DOES HAVE A PLAN
  • 00:22:20.010 --> 00:22:21.090
  • TO DESTROY YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:22:21.100 --> 00:22:22.090
  • IF YOU BELIEVE WHAT GOD'S WORD SAYS,
  • 00:22:22.100 --> 00:22:25.070
  • THAT HE HAS A SCHEME, HE HAS A METHOD,
  • 00:22:25.080 --> 00:22:27.180
  • IT'S PERSONALIZED--TO DESTROY YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:31.000
  • THE BEST WAY TO DEFEAT THAT PLAN IS TO
  • 00:22:31.010 --> 00:22:33.150
  • RECOGNIZE WHAT STRATEGY HE'S USING
  • 00:22:33.160 --> 00:22:36.150
  • WITH YOU RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:22:36.160 --> 00:22:39.090
  • FOR SOME OF YOU HE'S TRYING TO DISCOURAGE
  • 00:22:39.100 --> 00:22:41.040
  • YOU FROM WORSHIPPING HIM BY SENDING TRIALS
  • 00:22:41.050 --> 00:22:43.070
  • INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:43.080 --> 00:22:44.290
  • FOR OTHERS OF YOU HE IS TRYING TO DISTRACT YOU
  • 00:22:45.000 --> 00:22:47.150
  • FROM YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM,
  • 00:22:47.160 --> 00:22:49.010
  • EITHER THROUGH WORRIES, RICHES,
  • 00:22:49.020 --> 00:22:50.100
  • OR THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE.
  • 00:22:50.110 --> 00:22:53.010
  • NOW AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MESSAGE I SAID
  • 00:22:53.020 --> 00:22:54.230
  • SATAN'S PLAN IS A THREE-PRONGED ATTACK.
  • 00:22:54.240 --> 00:22:57.290
  • NOT ONLY IS HE TRYING TO DISCOURAGE YOU,
  • 00:22:58.000 --> 00:23:00.250
  • NOT ONLY IS HE TRYING TO DISTRACT YOU,
  • 00:23:00.260 --> 00:23:03.240
  • BUT NEXT WEEK WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THE
  • 00:23:03.250 --> 00:23:05.150
  • THIRD AND MOST POWERFULLY DANGEROUS
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:07.290
  • STRATEGY SATAN HAS TO DEPRIVE YOU OF EVERY
  • 00:23:08.000 --> 00:23:11.200
  • GOOD THING IN LIFE.
  • 00:23:11.210 --> 00:23:13.200
  • AND I HOPE YOU'LL BE WITH US NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:15.150
  • MUSIC
  • 00:23:15.160 --> 00:23:20.160
  • SATAN'S PLOY TO DISTRACT AND DISCOURAGE YOU IS DANGEROUS,
  • 00:23:20.170 --> 00:23:25.070
  • BUT EFFECTIVE.
  • 00:23:25.080 --> 00:23:26.260
  • IF WE CAN RECOGNIZE THE TACTICS THAT SATAN IS TRYING
  • 00:23:26.270 --> 00:23:30.000
  • TO USE WE CAN DEFEAT HIS PLANS FOR OUR DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:23:30.010 --> 00:23:35.100
  • ANOTHER WAY TO FOIL SATAN'S PLANS IS TO HAVE A DEFENSE
  • 00:23:35.110 --> 00:23:38.260
  • STRATEGY IN PLACE ANYTIME WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE UNDER ATTACK.
