  • Allen Jackson: We're goingto finish our talk
  • 00:00:23.682 --> 00:00:25.384
  • on leaving Egypt.
  • 00:00:25.417 --> 00:00:26.718
  • Now, we're not physicallyleaving Egypt, but we're leaving
  • 00:00:26.752 --> 00:00:29.221
  • any bondage that we entered 2020with behind, we're not taking it
  • 00:00:29.254 --> 00:00:32.791
  • out of this year.
  • 00:00:32.825 --> 00:00:34.126
  • If we've had to be quarantinedand face a pandemic, we wanna
  • 00:00:34.159 --> 00:00:36.929
  • start a new year with as muchfreedom in the Lord as we
  • 00:00:36.962 --> 00:00:39.631
  • can find.
  • 00:00:39.665 --> 00:00:40.999
  • That's exciting to me, that isso exciting to me.
  • 00:00:41.033 --> 00:00:44.670
  • Don't mourn the things that 2020may have taken away, begin to
  • 00:00:44.703 --> 00:00:48.307
  • celebrate what God has put inour hearts and what he's opened
  • 00:00:48.340 --> 00:00:51.677
  • before us.
  • 00:00:51.710 --> 00:00:53.011
  • We have more hope, moreconfidence, more anticipation of
  • 00:00:53.045 --> 00:00:55.681
  • the future than any time in ourlives.
  • 00:00:55.714 --> 00:00:58.550
  • We used to take Januarys forgranted, and now we're looking
  • 00:00:58.584 --> 00:01:01.620
  • towards this new one with therecognition of a new start
  • 00:01:01.653 --> 00:01:04.156
  • in God.
  • 00:01:04.189 --> 00:01:05.491
  • So lift up your hearts, yourhead, your face, your hands,
  • 00:01:05.524 --> 00:01:08.193
  • grab your Bible, get a notepad.
  • 00:01:08.227 --> 00:01:10.229
  • We're gonna open the Word ofGod.
  • 00:01:10.262 --> 00:01:11.597
  • He's got something for youtoday.
  • 00:01:11.630 --> 00:01:13.298
  • Allen Jackson: In fact, I wantto add one more layer to this,
  • 00:01:14.500 --> 00:01:16.435
  • because if we're gonna livetriumphantly and we're going to
  • 00:01:16.468 --> 00:01:19.037
  • be delivered from Egypt, ifwe're gonna complete our own
  • 00:01:19.071 --> 00:01:22.141
  • exodus through this season,we're going to have to
  • 00:01:22.174 --> 00:01:24.543
  • understand spiritual things on adeeper level.
  • 00:01:24.576 --> 00:01:28.614
  • When everything was working, andyou felt like you could manage
  • 00:01:28.647 --> 00:01:30.983
  • your future based on your ownincome and your own financial
  • 00:01:31.016 --> 00:01:33.619
  • plan, and your kids could go toschool because they could always
  • 00:01:33.652 --> 00:01:36.421
  • go to school, and there werealways businesses open, we could
  • 00:01:36.455 --> 00:01:40.325
  • afford for our faith andspiritual things to be a-- not
  • 00:01:40.359 --> 00:01:43.495
  • just a secondary, but someplacekind of in the back of
  • 00:01:43.529 --> 00:01:46.398
  • the consideration.
  • 00:01:46.431 --> 00:01:47.733
  • We wanted to get our eternitystraightened out, but once we
  • 00:01:47.766 --> 00:01:49.701
  • got that done, we didn't paymuch attention to
  • 00:01:49.735 --> 00:01:51.803
  • spiritual things.
  • 00:01:51.837 --> 00:01:53.772
  • Or we would quibble aboutwhether or not we believed in
  • 00:01:53.805 --> 00:01:55.574
  • praying for the sick, or whetherwe believe spiritual forces were
  • 00:01:55.607 --> 00:01:58.777
  • real, because we didn't reallyhave to do it, we could solve
  • 00:01:58.810 --> 00:02:00.746
  • most of our problems ourselves.
  • 00:02:00.779 --> 00:02:03.482
  • So we thought.
  • 00:02:03.515 --> 00:02:05.918
  • Well, we're in a new place, andI don't believe we're returning
  • 00:02:05.951 --> 00:02:09.655
  • to the old place.
  • 00:02:09.688 --> 00:02:11.323
  • We're gonna have to have agreater understanding of
  • 00:02:11.356 --> 00:02:13.292
  • spiritual things, you're gonnahave to give greater credibility
  • 00:02:13.325 --> 00:02:15.494
  • to spiritual things.
  • 00:02:15.527 --> 00:02:17.729
  • We began this year-- seems like100 years ago now.
  • 00:02:17.763 --> 00:02:22.701
  • Our new year's series was on theBeatitudes, and all those
  • 00:02:22.734 --> 00:02:26.872
  • Beatitudes begin with ablessing: blessed are the poor
  • 00:02:26.905 --> 00:02:31.009
  • in spirit, blessed are those whohunger and thirst after
  • 00:02:31.043 --> 00:02:33.679
  • righteousness, remember that?
  • 00:02:33.712 --> 00:02:35.681
  • And I told you-- 'cause my planat the beginning of the year
  • 00:02:35.714 --> 00:02:38.050
  • was, later in the year, we woulddo a series on the curses in
  • 00:02:38.083 --> 00:02:40.919
  • Scripture and what that meant.
  • 00:02:40.953 --> 00:02:44.122
  • Well, I want to take just amoment or two and look with you
  • 00:02:44.156 --> 00:02:46.758
  • at Jesus and some of hisministry, because it includes
  • 00:02:46.792 --> 00:02:50.295
  • both blessings and curses.
  • 00:02:50.329 --> 00:02:54.299
  • We're gonna have to be a bitmore spiritually sophisticated
  • 00:02:54.333 --> 00:02:56.935
  • than we have been heretofore.
  • 00:02:56.969 --> 00:02:59.271
  • It's Matthew chapter 11 andverse 20: "Jesus began to
  • 00:02:59.304 --> 00:03:02.741
  • denounce the cities in whichmost of his miracles had been
  • 00:03:02.774 --> 00:03:05.377
  • performed, because they did notrepent."
  • 00:03:05.410 --> 00:03:08.480
  • The miracles were not parlortricks.
  • 00:03:08.513 --> 00:03:11.883
  • The miracles were not justrandom displays of the power
  • 00:03:11.917 --> 00:03:15.520
  • of God.
  • 00:03:15.554 --> 00:03:16.888
  • The miracles were intended foran outcome.
  • 00:03:16.922 --> 00:03:19.224
  • God hasn't kept us this year,hasn't watched over us, hasn't
  • 00:03:19.258 --> 00:03:23.061
  • protected us, hasn't given usways of gathering, just so we
  • 00:03:23.095 --> 00:03:26.732
  • could thump our chest and say,"Look what we've done."
  • 00:03:26.765 --> 00:03:30.202
  • He's moving in our midst so thatwe might be mobilized, that we
  • 00:03:30.235 --> 00:03:33.505
  • might learn to trust him morecompletely, that we'll be
  • 00:03:33.538 --> 00:03:36.041
  • willing to follow him in wayswe've never been willing to
  • 00:03:36.074 --> 00:03:38.577
  • follow him before.
  • 00:03:38.610 --> 00:03:42.414
  • So Jesus has done adisproportionate number of
  • 00:03:42.447 --> 00:03:45.517
  • miracles in these three cities,and he begins to denounce them
  • 00:03:45.550 --> 00:03:50.122
  • because after all of themiracles, they did not repent.
  • 00:03:50.155 --> 00:03:54.960
  • Not a casual prayer, therewasn't a change of thought and a
  • 00:03:54.993 --> 00:03:57.796
  • change of behavior.
  • 00:03:57.829 --> 00:04:00.432
  • "Woe to you Korazin!
  • 00:04:00.465 --> 00:04:02.668
  • Woe to you, Bethsaida!
  • 00:04:02.701 --> 00:04:05.003
  • If the miracles that wereperformed in you had been
  • 00:04:05.037 --> 00:04:06.838
  • performed in Tyre and Sidon"--Tyre and Sidon are pagan cities,
  • 00:04:06.872 --> 00:04:10.275
  • coastal cities with all theblatant sins that you might
  • 00:04:10.309 --> 00:04:13.078
  • expect in a port city.
  • 00:04:13.111 --> 00:04:17.115
  • "They would have repented longago in sackcloth and ashes.
  • 00:04:17.149 --> 00:04:20.018
  • But I tell you, it'll be morebearable for Tyre and Sidon on
  • 00:04:20.052 --> 00:04:23.021
  • the day of judgment than foryou.
  • 00:04:23.055 --> 00:04:25.957
  • And you, Capernaum"-- Capernaumis his base of ministry.
  • 00:04:25.991 --> 00:04:29.895
  • He raised the dead there.
  • 00:04:29.928 --> 00:04:31.930
  • "And you, Capernaum, you'll belifted up to the skies?
  • 00:04:31.963 --> 00:04:36.435
  • No, you'll go down to thedepths.
  • 00:04:36.468 --> 00:04:38.637
  • And if the miracles that wereperformed in you had been
  • 00:04:38.670 --> 00:04:40.439
  • performed in Sodom, it wouldhave remained to this day.
  • 00:04:40.472 --> 00:04:43.875
  • But I tell you it'll be morebearable for Sodom on the day of
  • 00:04:43.909 --> 00:04:46.745
  • judgment than for you."
  • 00:04:46.778 --> 00:04:50.282
  • The word in there is "woe,"W-O-E.
  • 00:04:50.315 --> 00:04:52.317
  • I grew up around horses, we use"whoa" there too, but it's a
  • 00:04:52.351 --> 00:04:56.054
  • different one, W-H-O-A.
  • 00:04:56.088 --> 00:04:59.024
  • This "woe" doesn't mean "stop."
  • 00:04:59.057 --> 00:05:01.560
  • W-O-E doesn't mean "stop," andit's more than a
  • 00:05:01.593 --> 00:05:04.563
  • cautionary tone.
  • 00:05:04.596 --> 00:05:06.098
  • In this context, it's a curse.
  • 00:05:06.131 --> 00:05:09.501
  • Jesus pronounced a curse onthose cities.
  • 00:05:09.534 --> 00:05:12.637
  • He said, "you were presented anopportunity.
  • 00:05:12.671 --> 00:05:16.141
  • You were given a distinctopportunity, and you gobbled up
  • 00:05:16.174 --> 00:05:20.579
  • the blessings, you consumed thebenefits, you profited from the
  • 00:05:20.612 --> 00:05:24.816
  • the visitors that came to yourcity.
  • 00:05:24.850 --> 00:05:27.319
  • It gave you some attention, itgave you some elevation, but you
  • 00:05:27.352 --> 00:05:32.557
  • weren't willing to bedifferent."
  • 00:05:32.591 --> 00:05:39.865
  • I don't know what the futureholds for our nation, but I know
  • 00:05:39.898 --> 00:05:43.935
  • the key to our future is notabout politics, it's not even
  • 00:05:43.969 --> 00:05:48.907
  • about elections, it's about thehearts of the people in
  • 00:05:48.940 --> 00:05:52.677
  • our nation.
  • 00:05:52.711 --> 00:05:56.548
  • And I believe we're gonna haveto allow a new concern to grow
  • 00:05:56.581 --> 00:06:00.585
  • around that.
  • 00:06:00.619 --> 00:06:02.354
  • It's not how we identifyourselves, it's what we give our
  • 00:06:02.387 --> 00:06:05.857
  • hearts to.
  • 00:06:05.891 --> 00:06:08.560
  • Because I don't believe we cancontinue to ignore the goodness
  • 00:06:08.593 --> 00:06:12.030
  • of God and the grace of God andthe mercy of God, and think that
  • 00:06:12.063 --> 00:06:17.135
  • we will enjoy the abundance ofGod and the blessings of God and
  • 00:06:17.169 --> 00:06:21.373
  • the freedoms and liberties thatGod has made available to us.
  • 00:06:21.406 --> 00:06:27.446
  • There are some encouragingthings happening.
  • 00:06:27.479 --> 00:06:31.917
  • There are some notes of hope,there are things that we can
  • 00:06:31.950 --> 00:06:34.386
  • see, and the numbers of peoplewho stood and said, "We don't
  • 00:06:34.419 --> 00:06:37.389
  • believe that immorality is agood thing."
  • 00:06:37.422 --> 00:06:40.292
  • Our nation's almost equallydivided, it seems.
  • 00:06:40.325 --> 00:06:44.429
  • And there's some hope in that,for as many millions as we can
  • 00:06:44.463 --> 00:06:46.631
  • see standing on one side of thatdiscussion, we see multiplied
  • 00:06:46.665 --> 00:06:50.235
  • millions on the other, saying,"We prefer to stand for truth
  • 00:06:50.268 --> 00:06:54.940
  • and for the sanctity of humanlife and for a biblical view
  • 00:06:54.973 --> 00:06:58.810
  • of marriage."
  • 00:06:58.844 --> 00:07:01.112
  • But I don't want us to leadpresumptuous lives.
  • 00:07:01.146 --> 00:07:05.984
  • I want to take the minutes Ihave left and just have a-- I
  • 00:07:06.017 --> 00:07:09.020
  • want to go to Matthew chapter 10and unpack a passage with you
  • 00:07:09.054 --> 00:07:13.024
  • that's directed at followingJesus, because we want to follow
  • 00:07:13.058 --> 00:07:16.962
  • Jesus out of bondage.
  • 00:07:16.995 --> 00:07:19.297
  • I believe Jesus walked with theHebrew slaves when they came out
  • 00:07:19.331 --> 00:07:21.867
  • of Egypt.
  • 00:07:21.900 --> 00:07:23.568
  • I believe he brought themthrough the Red Sea, and he was
  • 00:07:23.602 --> 00:07:26.972
  • present when the water at Marawas too bitter to drink and God
  • 00:07:27.005 --> 00:07:31.810
  • supernaturally directed Moses tohow to resolve that situation.
  • 00:07:31.843 --> 00:07:39.017
  • And we're gonna have to followJesus in ways we've never
  • 00:07:39.050 --> 00:07:41.152
  • followed him before.
  • 00:07:41.186 --> 00:07:44.756
  • Matthew chapter 10 and verse 24,Jesus is speaking, and he said,
  • 00:07:44.789 --> 00:07:48.326
  • "A student is not above histeacher, nor a servant above
  • 00:07:48.360 --> 00:07:51.530
  • his master.
  • 00:07:51.563 --> 00:07:52.898
  • It's enough for the student tobe like his teacher, and the
  • 00:07:52.931 --> 00:07:55.600
  • servant like his master.
  • 00:07:55.634 --> 00:07:57.669
  • If the head of the house hasbeen called Beelzebub, how much
  • 00:07:57.702 --> 00:08:01.640
  • more will the members of hishousehold!"
  • 00:08:01.673 --> 00:08:03.308
  • Beelzebub is one of the titlesthat was given to Satan.
  • 00:08:03.341 --> 00:08:07.145
  • They accused Jesus of beingSatanic.
  • 00:08:07.178 --> 00:08:09.214
  • They said he delivered peoplefrom demonic influences because
  • 00:08:09.247 --> 00:08:12.250
  • he was under Satan's influence.
  • 00:08:12.284 --> 00:08:15.587
  • And it's a very practicalintroduction to this passage:
  • 00:08:15.620 --> 00:08:17.889
  • Jesus said a student isn'texpected to supersede his
  • 00:08:17.923 --> 00:08:20.992
  • teacher, it's sufficient if thestudent is just like
  • 00:08:21.026 --> 00:08:25.063
  • his teacher.
  • 00:08:25.096 --> 00:08:28.567
  • And he's giving us a bit of anassignment, a bit of an
  • 00:08:28.600 --> 00:08:31.269
  • awareness of our future.
  • 00:08:31.303 --> 00:08:33.371
  • If Jesus was accused andattacked, if he was berated and
  • 00:08:33.405 --> 00:08:37.509
  • demeaned and rejected, hisfollowers are going to
  • 00:08:37.542 --> 00:08:41.279
  • experience similar treatment.
  • 00:08:41.313 --> 00:08:48.019
  • "Amen" is the word you'researching for.
  • 00:08:48.053 --> 00:08:53.692
  • Jesus is our teacher.
  • 00:08:53.725 --> 00:08:56.194
  • He didn't live a life free ofchallenge or conflict
  • 00:08:56.227 --> 00:08:59.664
  • or obstacles.
  • 00:08:59.698 --> 00:09:02.434
  • In fact, most of the places hewent, there was direct
  • 00:09:02.467 --> 00:09:04.869
  • opposition, there were peoplewho tried to entrap him or
  • 00:09:04.903 --> 00:09:07.405
  • ensnare him.
  • 00:09:07.439 --> 00:09:08.740
  • In the places you would haveexpected him to have embraced--
  • 00:09:08.773 --> 00:09:10.909
  • been embraced and celebrated,there was often anger and hatred
  • 00:09:10.942 --> 00:09:14.346
  • directed towards him.
  • 00:09:14.379 --> 00:09:15.714
  • In Nazareth, in the villagewhere he grew up, they
  • 00:09:15.747 --> 00:09:17.415
  • were offended.
  • 00:09:17.449 --> 00:09:18.750
  • They said, "We know him, we knowhis brothers and sisters.
  • 00:09:18.783 --> 00:09:21.219
  • That's Joe's kid, who does hethink he is?"
  • 00:09:21.252 --> 00:09:26.091
  • And Jesus is telling us that weshould anticipate a similar
  • 00:09:26.124 --> 00:09:29.861
  • response in the world, becausethe same spirit that resisted
  • 00:09:29.894 --> 00:09:33.832
  • him is present to resist hispurposes in the earth today.
  • 00:09:33.865 --> 00:09:39.871
  • Now, Jesus was also very richlyrewarded.
  • 00:09:39.904 --> 00:09:41.973
  • In Philippians 2, it says,because of the choices
  • 00:09:42.007 --> 00:09:44.576
  • Jesus made, "God gave him thename that's above every name,
  • 00:09:44.609 --> 00:09:47.512
  • that at the name of Jesus everyknee will bow," and Jesus went
  • 00:09:47.545 --> 00:09:51.116
  • out of his way to explain to usthat we'll be richly rewarded if
  • 00:09:51.149 --> 00:09:54.452
  • we choose to follow him as well.
  • 00:09:54.486 --> 00:09:58.690
  • Same chapter, verse 26, the nextverse, Jesus said, "So do not be
  • 00:09:58.723 --> 00:10:02.460
  • afraid of them.
  • 00:10:02.494 --> 00:10:05.263
  • There is nothing concealed thatwill not be disclosed, or hidden
  • 00:10:05.296 --> 00:10:07.999
  • that will not be made known.
  • 00:10:08.033 --> 00:10:10.001
  • What I tell you in the dark,speak in the daylight; what is
  • 00:10:10.035 --> 00:10:13.672
  • whispered in your ear, proclaimfrom the roofs.
  • 00:10:13.705 --> 00:10:16.041
  • Do not be afraid of those whokill the body but cannot kill
  • 00:10:16.074 --> 00:10:18.877
  • the soul.
  • 00:10:18.910 --> 00:10:20.845
  • Rather, be afraid of the One whocan destroy both soul and body
  • 00:10:20.879 --> 00:10:23.848
  • in hell.
  • 00:10:23.882 --> 00:10:25.450
  • Are not two sparrows sold for apenny?
  • 00:10:25.483 --> 00:10:27.485
  • Yet not one of them will fall tothe ground apart from the will
  • 00:10:27.519 --> 00:10:30.221
  • of your Father.
  • 00:10:30.255 --> 00:10:31.690
  • Even the very hairs of your headare all numbered.
  • 00:10:31.723 --> 00:10:34.059
  • So don't be afraid; you're worthmore than many sparrows."
  • 00:10:34.092 --> 00:10:37.762
  • Three times in those shortverses, Jesus said, "Don't
  • 00:10:37.796 --> 00:10:40.565
  • be afraid."
  • 00:10:40.598 --> 00:10:42.200
  • The reason he had to repeat itis he's describing
  • 00:10:42.233 --> 00:10:44.235
  • frightening circumstances.
  • 00:10:44.269 --> 00:10:46.905
  • He said, "Don't be afraid ofpeople that could only kill
  • 00:10:46.938 --> 00:10:48.873
  • your body."
  • 00:10:48.907 --> 00:10:52.644
  • I know Jesus said it, but that'sodd, 'cause most of us are
  • 00:10:52.677 --> 00:10:56.281
  • frightened by things that wethink can end our lives.
  • 00:10:56.314 --> 00:10:58.917
  • But he said, "There's a greaterthreat to you than the ending of
  • 00:10:58.950 --> 00:11:01.319
  • your life."
  • 00:11:01.352 --> 00:11:02.821
  • Allen Jackson: Hey, it's PastorAllen.
  • 00:11:07.258 --> 00:11:08.693
  • America is in need of anawakening, a renewal, a revival,
  • 00:11:08.727 --> 00:11:12.163
  • whichever word you prefer.
  • 00:11:12.197 --> 00:11:13.932
  • We're not asking God to dosomething that he's never done
  • 00:11:13.965 --> 00:11:16.501
  • for us before.
  • 00:11:16.534 --> 00:11:17.836
  • We have a heritage as aChristian nation.
  • 00:11:17.869 --> 00:11:19.671
  • Multiple times, God has pouredout his spirit upon our nation:
  • 00:11:19.704 --> 00:11:23.007
  • the First Great Awakening, theSecond Great Awakening, the
  • 00:11:23.041 --> 00:11:25.577
  • Western revival.
  • 00:11:25.610 --> 00:11:27.011
  • We've watched it with our owneyes.
  • 00:11:27.045 --> 00:11:28.646
  • Many of us remember Billy Grahamon television as a fixture in
  • 00:11:28.680 --> 00:11:31.750
  • our homes in the evenings.
  • 00:11:31.783 --> 00:11:34.052
  • Well, we desperately need theSpirit of God to move in our
  • 00:11:34.085 --> 00:11:37.088
  • land again.
  • 00:11:37.122 --> 00:11:38.423
  • We're not powerless.
  • 00:11:38.456 --> 00:11:39.791
  • Together, we have taken the nameof Jesus to multiplied thousands
  • 00:11:39.824 --> 00:11:43.261
  • of people this year, and God isopening even greater doors for
  • 00:11:43.294 --> 00:11:46.598
  • us in the new year.
  • 00:11:46.631 --> 00:11:48.233
  • A friend of the ministry hasmade a million-dollar matching

  • Allen Jackson: Don't be afraidof deception, he said.
  • 00:12:35.013 --> 00:12:37.315
  • What's concealed will be madeknown.
  • 00:12:37.348 --> 00:12:40.852
  • That's important news to havetucked in your heart.
  • 00:12:40.885 --> 00:12:43.321
  • When you see deception, youdon't have to respond with fear.
  • 00:12:43.354 --> 00:12:47.659
  • You don't have to be filled withanxiety, because Jesus said
  • 00:12:47.692 --> 00:12:52.797
  • those things that they thinkthey have conducted in the dark
  • 00:12:52.831 --> 00:12:55.300
  • will be shouted from thehousetops.
  • 00:12:55.333 --> 00:12:57.101
  • Don't be afraid, we have ahigher allegiance.
  • 00:12:57.135 --> 00:13:02.440
  • Don't be afraid of physicalthreats and challenges, he said.
  • 00:13:02.473 --> 00:13:06.411
  • He's introducing us to somekingdom principles that are
  • 00:13:06.444 --> 00:13:08.580
  • worth having tucked in yourheart.
  • 00:13:08.613 --> 00:13:10.615
  • One is the eternal versus thetemporal, the temporary, there's
  • 00:13:10.648 --> 00:13:13.751
  • two different realms.
  • 00:13:13.785 --> 00:13:15.186
  • We walk through time, it's abrief part of our existence.
  • 00:13:15.220 --> 00:13:19.691
  • Your life is not determinedsimply by your journey
  • 00:13:19.724 --> 00:13:22.827
  • through time.
  • 00:13:22.861 --> 00:13:24.162
  • Your spirit is eternal.
  • 00:13:24.195 --> 00:13:25.530
  • When your body stops, yourspirit will step into eternity
  • 00:13:25.563 --> 00:13:28.032
  • until Jesus returns and you geta new resurrection body.
  • 00:13:28.066 --> 00:13:33.471
  • So there's a part of our lives,it is temporary, and Jesus's
  • 00:13:33.504 --> 00:13:36.040
  • coaching and counsel is not tomake the most important
  • 00:13:36.074 --> 00:13:39.477
  • decisions of your life based onwhat's temporary.
  • 00:13:39.510 --> 00:13:43.314
  • And throughout the story ofScripture, throughout the pages
  • 00:13:43.348 --> 00:13:45.717
  • of Scripture, God will neversacrifice the eternal for
  • 00:13:45.750 --> 00:13:48.920
  • the temporary.
  • 00:13:48.953 --> 00:13:51.122
  • It says Jesus endured the cross,scorning its shame, because he
  • 00:13:51.155 --> 00:13:54.492
  • was looking ahead to somethingelse.
  • 00:13:54.525 --> 00:13:57.495
  • Brutal treatment, inhumantreatment, he said, I can look
  • 00:13:57.528 --> 00:14:01.399
  • past that.
  • 00:14:01.432 --> 00:14:04.335
  • Jesus said don't worry aboutthose who threaten your body, be
  • 00:14:04.369 --> 00:14:07.138
  • concerned with those whothreaten your destiny.
  • 00:14:07.171 --> 00:14:12.744
  • We get frightened and concernedabout things that we're holding
  • 00:14:12.777 --> 00:14:15.313
  • onto that are determiners intime.
  • 00:14:15.346 --> 00:14:17.782
  • We want to begin to change ourfocus to an eternal perspective.
  • 00:14:17.815 --> 00:14:23.955
  • We're in training.
  • 00:14:23.988 --> 00:14:26.090
  • God loves us enough to send usto school between here and the
  • 00:14:26.124 --> 00:14:29.661
  • Return of the King.
  • 00:14:29.694 --> 00:14:31.029
  • There are some challenges comingto the earth, and I believe
  • 00:14:31.062 --> 00:14:35.199
  • we're being prepared, beingtrained, gaining new strength,
  • 00:14:35.233 --> 00:14:39.170
  • learning to trust God in newways.
  • 00:14:39.203 --> 00:14:41.105
  • It's God's love that he'sdemonstrating towards us.
  • 00:14:41.139 --> 00:14:46.244
  • And then Jesus reminds us thatGod watches over and is involved
  • 00:14:46.277 --> 00:14:49.881
  • with the smallest of matters.
  • 00:14:49.914 --> 00:14:52.650
  • He said two sparrows are soldfor a penny, not a
  • 00:14:52.684 --> 00:14:56.287
  • big investment.
  • 00:14:56.321 --> 00:14:58.423
  • And he said if a sparrow fallsto the ground, God takes note.
  • 00:14:58.456 --> 00:15:03.828
  • In my little hillbilly brain, mynote to myself is, God attends
  • 00:15:03.861 --> 00:15:08.666
  • the funerals for the sparrows.
  • 00:15:08.700 --> 00:15:13.071
  • It makes me smile.
  • 00:15:13.104 --> 00:15:15.073
  • And then, in case we missed it,Jesus said he knows how many
  • 00:15:15.106 --> 00:15:17.041
  • hairs are on your head, for someof us a greater assignment than
  • 00:15:17.075 --> 00:15:21.012
  • for others.
  • 00:15:21.045 --> 00:15:23.715
  • But God is involved with thesmallest of matters.
  • 00:15:23.748 --> 00:15:28.953
  • I studied science once upon atime, and the smallest particles
  • 00:15:28.987 --> 00:15:33.291
  • of our world are put togetherwith the same precision that the
  • 00:15:33.324 --> 00:15:37.528
  • Earth orbits the sun.
  • 00:15:37.562 --> 00:15:40.999
  • God's not just involved with themacro, he's involved with
  • 00:15:41.032 --> 00:15:44.335
  • the micro.
  • 00:15:44.369 --> 00:15:45.703
  • And I know we have debates withhim about his sense of timing,
  • 00:15:45.737 --> 00:15:48.106
  • or why he allows suffering, orwhy the difficulties come to
  • 00:15:48.139 --> 00:15:50.908
  • our lives.
  • 00:15:50.942 --> 00:15:52.977
  • That's a different set ofquestions.
  • 00:15:53.011 --> 00:15:55.380
  • But God is not lost in thedetails.
  • 00:15:55.413 --> 00:15:58.616
  • He understands.
  • 00:15:58.649 --> 00:16:01.185
  • And then Jesus goes on to say,verse 32, "Whoever acknowledges
  • 00:16:01.219 --> 00:16:04.889
  • me before men, I willacknowledge him before my Father
  • 00:16:04.922 --> 00:16:07.525
  • in heaven.
  • 00:16:07.558 --> 00:16:08.860
  • But whoever disowns me beforemen, I will disown him before my
  • 00:16:08.893 --> 00:16:11.496
  • Father in heaven."
  • 00:16:11.529 --> 00:16:12.964
  • There's another principle here,it's the principle
  • 00:16:12.997 --> 00:16:14.599
  • of reciprocity.
  • 00:16:14.632 --> 00:16:16.667
  • Jesus said the way you behavewill determine the behavior
  • 00:16:16.701 --> 00:16:19.170
  • that's directed towards you.
  • 00:16:19.203 --> 00:16:21.339
  • If you acknowledge me, I willacknowledge you.
  • 00:16:21.372 --> 00:16:24.175
  • If you disown me before others,you'll be disowned before
  • 00:16:24.208 --> 00:16:27.011
  • the Father.
  • 00:16:27.045 --> 00:16:29.313
  • If you forgive others, you'll beforgiven, if you give generously
  • 00:16:29.347 --> 00:16:33.017
  • to others, you'll be given towith abundance.
  • 00:16:33.051 --> 00:16:36.621
  • It's a biblical principle, youwant to be conscious of giving
  • 00:16:36.654 --> 00:16:39.624
  • attention to practicing it.
  • 00:16:39.657 --> 00:16:45.830
  • Open your heart to people.
  • 00:16:45.863 --> 00:16:48.566
  • If you want God to be attentiveto your prayers, you want the
  • 00:16:48.599 --> 00:16:51.569
  • people that know you to knowthat you're attentive to God.
  • 00:16:51.602 --> 00:16:56.007
  • It's a learned behavior.
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:58.109
  • We've had private Christianityfor too long.
  • 00:16:58.142 --> 00:17:01.679
  • People have said to us we shouldkeep our faith in the privacy of
  • 00:17:01.712 --> 00:17:04.549
  • our home, or behind the confinesof the walls of our church.
  • 00:17:04.582 --> 00:17:07.885
  • No way!
  • 00:17:07.919 --> 00:17:10.121
  • We can't afford that, we can'tafford to deny God in the public
  • 00:17:10.154 --> 00:17:14.525
  • square or where we do business.
  • 00:17:14.559 --> 00:17:16.928
  • If it has an impact on ourincome opportunities, we'll
  • 00:17:16.961 --> 00:17:19.630
  • trust God to make up thedifference.
  • 00:17:19.664 --> 00:17:24.969
  • Jesus is helping us, he'sshowing us the pathway towards
  • 00:17:25.002 --> 00:17:28.873
  • freedom, how to exit bondage.
  • 00:17:28.906 --> 00:17:31.509
  • We don't have to be afraid ofwhether it's deception or
  • 00:17:31.542 --> 00:17:34.011
  • physical threats, that if we'llacknowledge God, God will
  • 00:17:34.045 --> 00:17:38.149
  • respond to us.
  • 00:17:38.182 --> 00:17:40.518
  • And then he really gets into thedeep weeds with the last
  • 00:17:40.551 --> 00:17:42.753
  • verses here.
  • 00:17:42.787 --> 00:17:44.655
  • It's focused on the offense ofJesus-- you understand Jesus
  • 00:17:44.689 --> 00:17:47.825
  • is offensive?
  • 00:17:47.859 --> 00:17:51.963
  • I've been in multiple settings,academic settings, political
  • 00:17:51.996 --> 00:17:54.732
  • settings, different places inthe world, different-- all sorts
  • 00:17:54.765 --> 00:17:59.470
  • of different settings.
  • 00:17:59.504 --> 00:18:00.805
  • And people say, "You know, ifyou'll just diminish this Jesus
  • 00:18:00.838 --> 00:18:03.441
  • thing, we can create unity."
  • 00:18:03.474 --> 00:18:05.409
  • What a lie.
  • 00:18:05.443 --> 00:18:08.846
  • You'll hear it gain traction,it's in our future.
  • 00:18:08.880 --> 00:18:13.951
  • That we could find unity betweenIslam and Judaism and
  • 00:18:13.985 --> 00:18:17.822
  • Christianity if you'll just tonedown this Jesus thing.
  • 00:18:17.855 --> 00:18:23.728
  • You'll hear it in our publicsquare now.
  • 00:18:23.761 --> 00:18:26.497
  • We can all get along, we can allstand together, if you'll just
  • 00:18:26.531 --> 00:18:30.034
  • let go of this Jesus thing.
  • 00:18:30.067 --> 00:18:35.139
  • Well, Jesus understood it, hetold us about it.
  • 00:18:35.173 --> 00:18:38.209
  • Beginning in verse 34, he said,"Do not suppose that I've come
  • 00:18:38.242 --> 00:18:40.912
  • to bring peace to the earth."
  • 00:18:40.945 --> 00:18:44.882
  • I'm amazed, I hear Christianssay, "Jesus was all about love."
  • 00:18:44.916 --> 00:18:49.720
  • Well, he is, he gave us acommandment about love, I don't
  • 00:18:49.754 --> 00:18:51.856
  • want to diminish that, but Jesussaid some other things as well:
  • 00:18:51.889 --> 00:18:56.427
  • "Do not suppose I've come tobring peace to the earth.
  • 00:18:56.460 --> 00:18:58.963
  • I didn't come to bring peace,but a sword.
  • 00:18:58.996 --> 00:19:02.233
  • I've come to turn a man againsthis father, and a daughter
  • 00:19:02.266 --> 00:19:04.635
  • against her mother, and adaughter-in-law against her
  • 00:19:04.669 --> 00:19:06.604
  • mother-in-law-- a man's enemieswill be the members of his
  • 00:19:06.637 --> 00:19:09.574
  • own household.
  • 00:19:09.607 --> 00:19:11.209
  • But anyone who loves his fatheror mother more than me isn't
  • 00:19:11.242 --> 00:19:13.644
  • worthy of me; and anyone wholoves his son or daughter more
  • 00:19:13.678 --> 00:19:17.448
  • than me is not worthy of me; andanyone who doesn't take his
  • 00:19:17.481 --> 00:19:20.952
  • cross and follow me is notworthy of me.
  • 00:19:20.985 --> 00:19:24.522
  • Whoever finds his life will loseit, and whoever loses his life
  • 00:19:24.555 --> 00:19:27.391
  • for my sake will find it.
  • 00:19:27.425 --> 00:19:29.827
  • And he who receives you receivesme, and he who receives me
  • 00:19:29.860 --> 00:19:33.965
  • receives the one who sent me."
  • 00:19:33.998 --> 00:19:37.435
  • The offense of Jesus.
  • 00:19:37.468 --> 00:19:40.571
  • We have to choose him first.
  • 00:19:40.605 --> 00:19:43.975
  • He's Lord of all.
  • 00:19:44.008 --> 00:19:46.944
  • Not all will go with us.
  • 00:19:46.978 --> 00:19:49.747
  • We say it through tears, there'sno arrogance in it, there's no
  • 00:19:49.780 --> 00:19:52.550
  • joy in it, there's a brokennessin it.
  • 00:19:52.583 --> 00:19:56.520
  • Jesus said, "I didn't come tobring peace."
  • 00:19:56.554 --> 00:19:59.790
  • May I submit we need newpriorities?
  • 00:19:59.824 --> 00:20:04.562
  • We've gotta reorient our livesaround the preeminence of
  • 00:20:04.595 --> 00:20:07.265
  • loving God.
  • 00:20:07.298 --> 00:20:10.801
  • We have to love him first.
  • 00:20:10.835 --> 00:20:14.305
  • I know before, we seemed to beable to manage our lives and get
  • 00:20:14.338 --> 00:20:18.409
  • the things we wanted and treatGod as if he were an occasional
  • 00:20:18.442 --> 00:20:23.447
  • accompaniment, but I don'tbelieve that will suffice in
  • 00:20:23.481 --> 00:20:27.151
  • our future.
  • 00:20:27.184 --> 00:20:29.287
  • Jesus said we have to take upour cross.
  • 00:20:29.320 --> 00:20:33.224
  • The cross is a tool of capitalpunishment, he's not talking
  • 00:20:33.257 --> 00:20:35.793
  • about jewelry, something foraround your neck or in your ear.
  • 00:20:35.826 --> 00:20:42.333
  • You gotta be willing to lay downyour life.
  • 00:20:42.366 --> 00:20:46.070
  • We've gotta stop stamping ourfeet like petulant children
  • 00:20:46.103 --> 00:20:48.739
  • demanding that God do our will.
  • 00:20:48.773 --> 00:20:52.276
  • We've gotta take up our crossand say, "Lord, I'll follow you,
  • 00:20:52.310 --> 00:20:54.945
  • which way does the path gotoday?
  • 00:20:54.979 --> 00:20:58.416
  • Which way would you have mefollow today?"
  • 00:20:58.449 --> 00:21:02.887
  • We have to lose our lives forthe sake of Jesus.
  • 00:21:02.920 --> 00:21:07.024
  • Jesus laid down his life, andhe's asking us to do the same,
  • 00:21:07.058 --> 00:21:12.430
  • not to be martyrs, but to laydown the demands of our flesh,
  • 00:21:12.463 --> 00:21:18.169
  • of our selfish nature.
  • 00:21:18.202 --> 00:21:21.906
  • Again, we have perverted thegospel and have manipulated it
  • 00:21:21.939 --> 00:21:25.076
  • to imagine that it's about somemeans of self-promotion.
  • 00:21:25.109 --> 00:21:31.015
  • And God, in his great love forus, has given us a year where
  • 00:21:31.048 --> 00:21:34.251
  • he's showing us realignment, anew invitation.
  • 00:21:34.285 --> 00:21:39.557
  • I want to close with those wordsthat I've shared with you often
  • 00:21:39.590 --> 00:21:42.960
  • through these months: repent andrenounce and release.
  • 00:21:42.993 --> 00:21:48.799
  • Repent is about a change, achange of direction and a change
  • 00:21:48.833 --> 00:21:51.402
  • of thought.
  • 00:21:51.435 --> 00:21:54.038
  • Renouncing is separatingyourself from your past,
  • 00:21:54.071 --> 00:21:58.275
  • distancing yourself from it,both spiritually and in every
  • 00:21:58.309 --> 00:22:01.479
  • other way.
  • 00:22:01.512 --> 00:22:03.147
  • And then releasing, turningloose of those things, emotions
  • 00:22:03.180 --> 00:22:05.750
  • and angers and resentment andbitterness and hatred.
  • 00:22:05.783 --> 00:22:10.254
  • You can't afford to carry them.
  • 00:22:10.287 --> 00:22:13.324
  • I'm not saying that the offensewasn't real, I'm not saying that
  • 00:22:13.357 --> 00:22:16.761
  • your response wasn't justified,but I'm saying you'll have to
  • 00:22:16.794 --> 00:22:19.830
  • offer it to the Lord because ofthat principle of reciprocity.
  • 00:22:19.864 --> 00:22:22.967
  • If we don't forgive, we can't beforgiven.
  • 00:22:23.000 --> 00:22:27.037
  • We can't afford to be consumedwith anger and wrath
  • 00:22:27.071 --> 00:22:29.774
  • and vengeance.
  • 00:22:29.807 --> 00:22:32.410
  • We need God's blessing.
  • 00:22:32.443 --> 00:22:36.981
  • I want to close with a prayer.
  • 00:22:37.014 --> 00:22:38.315
  • I brought it, I think you canpray it with me, I believe they
  • 00:22:38.349 --> 00:22:40.418
  • can put it on the screens for ustonight.
  • 00:22:40.451 --> 00:22:42.086
  • If you'll stand, let the bloodbegan to move back into
  • 00:22:42.119 --> 00:22:45.122
  • your feet.
  • 00:22:45.156 --> 00:22:47.892
  • [laughing]
  • 00:22:47.925 --> 00:22:50.694
  • I'm thankful for your lives.
  • 00:22:50.728 --> 00:22:53.264
  • You know you're precious to God.
  • 00:22:53.297 --> 00:22:56.033
  • You are of tremendous value inhis sight.
  • 00:22:56.066 --> 00:23:00.237
  • I don't know all that God isgoing to do, but I know he's
  • 00:23:00.271 --> 00:23:03.908
  • preparing a church to make animpact, and I don't mean a
  • 00:23:03.941 --> 00:23:07.611
  • single congregation.
  • 00:23:07.645 --> 00:23:08.979
  • He's preparing a churchwith a capital C.
  • 00:23:09.013 --> 00:23:11.982
  • He's preparing a church to makean impact in this
  • 00:23:12.016 --> 00:23:13.984
  • world like none we've everseen before.
  • 00:23:14.018 --> 00:23:18.656
  • And I know you want to be apart, I know you're making great
  • 00:23:18.689 --> 00:23:22.426
  • sacrifices, I know you'restruggling to reorient your life
  • 00:23:22.460 --> 00:23:27.131
  • and redirect your thoughts andyour hearts.
  • 00:23:27.164 --> 00:23:30.768
  • It's an honor to walk with you.
  • 00:23:30.801 --> 00:23:33.370
  • I'm so thankful for your lives.
  • 00:23:33.404 --> 00:23:37.508
  • I know you get tired, I knowit's wearisome, I know the
  • 00:23:37.541 --> 00:23:42.613
  • challenges don't seem to relent,but the one who promised is
  • 00:23:42.646 --> 00:23:46.250
  • faithful, and my Bible says thatJesus is the author and the
  • 00:23:46.283 --> 00:23:51.222
  • completer of our story.
  • 00:23:51.255 --> 00:23:54.859
  • You can trust him.
  • 00:23:54.892 --> 00:23:57.294
  • I brought you a prayer, I wantyou to pray it with me.
  • 00:23:57.328 --> 00:23:59.263
  • If you're outdoors, use youroutdoor voice.
  • 00:23:59.296 --> 00:24:01.565
  • If you're indoors, don't screamat your neighbor.
  • 00:24:01.599 --> 00:24:04.869
  • "Heavenly Father, I repent of mycomplacency, forgive me for
  • 00:24:04.902 --> 00:24:10.207
  • tolerating things which you havesaid are intolerable.
  • 00:24:10.241 --> 00:24:14.111
  • I choose to walk in the light,to embrace your truth and live
  • 00:24:14.144 --> 00:24:18.315
  • in obedience.
  • 00:24:18.349 --> 00:24:20.117
  • I renounce all associations withdarkness.
  • 00:24:20.150 --> 00:24:23.454
  • I choose your favor over theapproval of anyone else.
  • 00:24:23.487 --> 00:24:27.625
  • Deliver me from evil and lead meaway from temptation.
  • 00:24:27.658 --> 00:24:32.196
  • I forgive anyone who has hurt orharmed, I release them.
  • 00:24:32.229 --> 00:24:36.967
  • Through the blood of Jesus Ihave been delivered out of the
  • 00:24:37.001 --> 00:24:39.637
  • hand of the enemy.
  • 00:24:39.670 --> 00:24:41.405
  • Satan has no place in me and nopower over me, through the blood
  • 00:24:41.438 --> 00:24:46.410
  • of Jesus.
  • 00:24:46.443 --> 00:24:47.778
  • Amen."
  • 00:24:47.811 --> 00:24:49.213
  • Hallelujah, you'd better givethe Lord a hand, God bless you.

  • Our churches have been closed.

  • It's been a year of more fearand more confusion, things I
