  • 00:00:03.240 --> 00:00:07.040
  • 00:00:07.050 --> 00:00:14.100
  • Doug Batchelor: Through the sin of Adam we've all got big
  • 00:00:14.110 --> 00:00:16.260
  • problems.
  • 00:00:16.270 --> 00:00:18.070
  • We're tempted, we fall, we sin, but through the sacrifice
  • 00:00:18.080 --> 00:00:21.050
  • and the victory of Jesus we can be born again, adopted
  • 00:00:21.060 --> 00:00:26.090
  • into a new family that has life instead of death.
  • 00:00:26.100 --> 00:00:30.200
  • 00:00:30.210 --> 00:00:34.190
  • Doug: You know one of the most popular websites and it's also
  • 00:00:34.200 --> 00:00:38.130
  • become a billion dollar business right now is ancestry.com.
  • 00:00:38.140 --> 00:00:43.260
  • It's the world's largest online collection of family history
  • 00:00:43.270 --> 00:00:47.160
  • records and they got three million subscribers.
  • 00:00:47.170 --> 00:00:53.100
  • There's other knock offs that do varying types of this where
  • 00:00:53.110 --> 00:00:57.150
  • people can kind of track their ancestry.
  • 00:00:57.160 --> 00:01:01.000
  • You know, I don't know why but as I've gotten a little
  • 00:01:01.010 --> 00:01:03.050
  • older I've been a little more interested in that.
  • 00:01:03.060 --> 00:01:06.160
  • About a year ago, Karen got me ancestry.com test.
  • 00:01:06.170 --> 00:01:12.160
  • I was always interested because my dad said, "Yeah, we're part
  • 00:01:13.040 --> 00:01:16.100
  • Indian.
  • 00:01:16.110 --> 00:01:17.200
  • We're part American-Indian."
  • 00:01:17.210 --> 00:01:19.050
  • And I always told everybody all my life.
  • 00:01:19.060 --> 00:01:22.070
  • Yep, I even, you know, my uncle lived with the Navajos.
  • 00:01:22.080 --> 00:01:25.160
  • I lived on the reservation.
  • 00:01:25.170 --> 00:01:26.260
  • I used to tell 'em, Yeah, I tried to figure it out when he
  • 00:01:26.270 --> 00:01:29.130
  • said it was a grandma was a Cherokee.
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:31.030
  • And so, Karen got me this DNA tests.
  • 00:01:31.040 --> 00:01:33.100
  • I couldn't wait to see the results how much Indian I
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:35.220
  • was and came back.
  • 00:01:35.230 --> 00:01:39.070
  • Took six weeks after spitting in a bottle to get the report
  • 00:01:39.080 --> 00:01:42.060
  • back.
  • 00:01:42.070 --> 00:01:44.180
  • And I have no Indian at all.
  • 00:01:44.190 --> 00:01:48.120
  • And my father and his brothers, they've told me all my life.
  • 00:01:48.130 --> 00:01:52.130
  • I didn't make it up.
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:53.230
  • You can ask Karen.
  • 00:01:53.240 --> 00:01:55.030
  • She talked to my uncles.
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:56.140
  • Yeah, yeah, Cherokee.
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:57.240
  • 'Cause everybody says that, don't they?
  • 00:01:57.250 --> 00:01:59.050
  • There's people in government that say it.
  • 00:01:59.060 --> 00:02:05.080
  • Good thing I'm not running for public office, but because
  • 00:02:06.020 --> 00:02:08.280
  • yeah, it came up zero.
  • 00:02:08.290 --> 00:02:10.090
  • Now, it turns out I did have a little Indian from India,
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:13.290
  • but that's not what I thought.
  • 00:02:14.000 --> 00:02:17.010
  • I'm a hodgepodge from Europe and England, but mostly Jew.
  • 00:02:17.020 --> 00:02:22.070
  • European Jew it said.
  • 00:02:22.080 --> 00:02:24.290
  • Well, our message today is about fruits and nuts
  • 00:02:25.000 --> 00:02:28.130
  • and the family tree.
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:31.120
  • And someone said once I shook the family tree and several nuts
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:34.240
  • fell out.
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:37.030
  • And I think that we all know that it seems like every family
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:43.040
  • has an element of baggage, little bit of dysfunction,
  • 00:02:44.140 --> 00:02:49.040
  • varying degrees of challenges.
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:52.130
  • Child asks their mother, "How are people born?"
  • 00:02:52.140 --> 00:02:56.190
  • So, the mother being a Christian said, "Well, Adam got married
  • 00:02:56.200 --> 00:02:59.210
  • to Eve and they had babies and those babies grew
  • 00:02:59.220 --> 00:03:01.240
  • up and they had babies.
  • 00:03:01.250 --> 00:03:03.050
  • And eventually we came along."
  • 00:03:03.060 --> 00:03:05.130
  • And the child then went to the father and he was not
  • 00:03:05.140 --> 00:03:07.140
  • a believer and he said, "Well, years ago our ancestors were
  • 00:03:07.150 --> 00:03:10.200
  • monkeys that went through the jungle and gradually
  • 00:03:10.210 --> 00:03:13.120
  • they evolved into what we are today."
  • 00:03:13.130 --> 00:03:16.160
  • Child ran back to the mom and said, "Mom, you lied to me.
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:19.280
  • Dad said we came from monkeys."
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:22.030
  • She said, "No, I wasn't lying.
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:23.200
  • He was talking about his side of the family."
  • 00:03:23.210 --> 00:03:29.040
  • Now, I know when I first started reading through the Bible I
  • 00:03:29.050 --> 00:03:33.230
  • sometimes struggled going through the genealogies.
  • 00:03:33.240 --> 00:03:37.140
  • I don't know how you are but when you get
  • 00:03:37.150 --> 00:03:38.270
  • to the genealogies you kinda just mumble through the names.
  • 00:03:38.280 --> 00:03:41.170
  • Some of 'em are hard to say.
  • 00:03:41.180 --> 00:03:42.270
  • I used to say is this part of the Bible inspired?
  • 00:03:42.280 --> 00:03:46.250
  • Am I supposed to understand this?
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:49.160
  • And you find genealogies, you'll find it you know in Genesis
  • 00:03:49.170 --> 00:03:52.090
  • chapter 5.
  • 00:03:52.100 --> 00:03:53.190
  • And you get Chronicles, there's quite a bit of genealogy
  • 00:03:53.200 --> 00:03:55.250
  • in Chronicles.
  • 00:03:55.260 --> 00:03:57.050
  • You might be interested to know that the the chronicles are
  • 00:03:57.060 --> 00:04:01.140
  • written with a very specific purpose and it's actually very
  • 00:04:01.150 --> 00:04:05.000
  • valuable.
  • 00:04:05.010 --> 00:04:06.220
  • First of all, if you look in 1 Chronicles chapter 1, it's
  • 00:04:06.230 --> 00:04:10.150
  • tracing the genealogy all the way from Adam up to King
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:15.070
  • David.
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:16.180
  • It's the royal genealogy.
  • 00:04:16.190 --> 00:04:19.000
  • It's the genealogy of the king.
  • 00:04:19.010 --> 00:04:21.270
  • But then if you go to 1 Chronicles chapter 6, it's got
  • 00:04:21.280 --> 00:04:24.150
  • a different genealogy, it goes from Levi and it's the genealogy
  • 00:04:24.160 --> 00:04:29.290
  • of the priests.
  • 00:04:30.000 --> 00:04:32.020
  • I think it's interesting they were careful to separate
  • 00:04:32.030 --> 00:04:34.170
  • the king and the priest.
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:35.280
  • The church and the state.
  • 00:04:35.290 --> 00:04:37.080
  • They were separate genealogies.
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:39.050
  • There was a civil calendar.
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:40.210
  • There was a religious calendar.
  • 00:04:40.220 --> 00:04:42.200
  • And you may know that one reason God I think blessed America,
  • 00:04:42.210 --> 00:04:46.280
  • we're that lamb with two horns, because we had a separation
  • 00:04:46.290 --> 00:04:50.010
  • of church and state.
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:51.240
  • Doesn't mean that the state is not informed by the church
  • 00:04:51.250 --> 00:04:54.240
  • and the church is not informed by the laws of the land, but we
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:57.230
  • kept them two distinct things.
  • 00:04:57.240 --> 00:04:59.050
  • Where you find that in the Bible?
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:05:02.100
  • But you also as you read through the genealogies
  • 00:05:02.110 --> 00:05:04.240
  • of the kings, you find some interesting characters.
  • 00:05:04.250 --> 00:05:07.250
  • Some were good, some were not so good, some were terrible.
  • 00:05:07.260 --> 00:05:11.030
  • And even among the priests, you got Nadab, and Abihu, and--and
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:13.180
  • Phinehas.
  • 00:05:13.190 --> 00:05:17.150
  • So, the Bible gives a very faithful record and even
  • 00:05:17.160 --> 00:05:20.020
  • in those family trees they had a few fruits and nuts.
  • 00:05:20.030 --> 00:05:25.110
  • But if you look at the family tree of Jesus, you're gonna find
  • 00:05:25.120 --> 00:05:27.280
  • out he has an interesting family tree.
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:30.120
  • Some of you open up your New Testament and you get bored
  • 00:05:30.130 --> 00:05:33.260
  • right away.
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.060
  • The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son
  • 00:05:35.070 --> 00:05:37.290
  • of David, the son of Abraham.
  • 00:05:38.000 --> 00:05:41.000
  • Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, Jacob begot Judah.
  • 00:05:41.010 --> 00:05:44.230
  • Now, right there I haven't gone very far.
  • 00:05:44.240 --> 00:05:47.030
  • Abraham who had an affair with his wife's maid
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:51.260
  • with the encouragement of his wife, beget Isaac who played
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:56.190
  • favorites with his two sons.
  • 00:05:56.200 --> 00:05:59.210
  • Who beget Jacob who dressed up like a sheep so he could
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:02.140
  • deceive his father and work with his mother as a conspirator
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:06.280
  • to steal the birthright.
  • 00:06:06.290 --> 00:06:09.010
  • And he then had Judah, who slept with his daughter-in-law
  • 00:06:09.020 --> 00:06:14.100
  • and ended up having twins because he didn't want to give
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:17.050
  • his sons to her.
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:18.150
  • Now, I haven't gone very far in Jesus's family tree,
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:22.100
  • but something I'm noticing right away is they had a little
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:25.180
  • dysfunction going on and yet these are the holy
  • 00:06:25.190 --> 00:06:30.090
  • ancestors of Jesus.
  • 00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:31.190
  • Now, they were godly people.
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:32.290
  • Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
  • 00:06:33.000 --> 00:06:34.100
  • But you read in their lives and in spite of their commitment
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:37.210
  • to God and loving the Lord, they seem very human.
  • 00:06:37.220 --> 00:06:42.140
  • And you can just keep on going down and all you could talk
  • 00:06:42.150 --> 00:06:45.030
  • about Rahab, who she had a cottage business you might
  • 00:06:45.040 --> 00:06:51.030
  • say.
  • 00:06:51.110 --> 00:06:52.200
  • And then you've got David and we've heard ad nauseam
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:55.260
  • about David's lying, and deception, and murder,
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:59.180
  • and yet he's an ancestor of Jesus.
  • 00:06:59.190 --> 00:07:03.140
  • So, we're learning that God's family is made up of imperfect
  • 00:07:03.150 --> 00:07:08.060
  • people that God made perfect through the plan of salvation.
  • 00:07:08.070 --> 00:07:14.070
  • And it's not just here in Matthew.
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:16.130
  • When you look at the genealogy of Jesus, you can see that
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:20.200
  • there's something very interesting happening.
  • 00:07:20.210 --> 00:07:22.280
  • In Matthew, you've got that genealogy.
  • 00:07:22.290 --> 00:07:26.180
  • Matthew's genealogy is the line of Jesus written for the Jews
  • 00:07:26.190 --> 00:07:32.210
  • that leads to the father that was very important, leads
  • 00:07:32.220 --> 00:07:35.120
  • to Joseph the father.
  • 00:07:35.130 --> 00:07:37.050
  • Luke a physician said, "Well, technically Jesus was conceived
  • 00:07:37.060 --> 00:07:40.190
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:40.200 --> 00:07:41.290
  • So we got to trace the bloodline through the mother."
  • 00:07:42.000 --> 00:07:44.200
  • So, Luke's bloodline is written for the Gentiles and it goes
  • 00:07:44.210 --> 00:07:47.250
  • through the mother.
  • 00:07:47.260 --> 00:07:49.100
  • And you know he takes it all the way back.
  • 00:07:49.110 --> 00:07:51.150
  • It doesn't just go to Abraham, it says the son of Nathan,
  • 00:07:51.160 --> 00:07:54.250
  • the son of David, the son of Jesse, the son of Obed,
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:57.020
  • the son of Boaz, the son of Salmon, and you keep on going
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:08:00.060
  • back as the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son
  • 00:08:00.070 --> 00:08:03.130
  • of Adam, the son of God.
  • 00:08:03.140 --> 00:08:05.080
  • They follow the same geology until you get to David and then
  • 00:08:05.090 --> 00:08:09.180
  • Luke now follows from David to Mary going through Mary's
  • 00:08:09.190 --> 00:08:13.210
  • father-in-law, rather Joseph's father-in-law, Mary's dad,
  • 00:08:13.220 --> 00:08:18.240
  • and then Matthew was following it from David
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:22.200
  • to Joseph because that would be the important lines.
  • 00:08:22.210 --> 00:08:25.160
  • People have wondered why there are two different genealogies.
  • 00:08:25.170 --> 00:08:27.290
  • There was a reason for that just like I showed you there was
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:30.130
  • a genealogy for the king and the priest.
  • 00:08:30.140 --> 00:08:32.150
  • Luke is for the Gentiles, Matthew's for the Jews.
  • 00:08:32.160 --> 00:08:34.280
  • One is going through the father.
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:36.100
  • One is going through the mother.
  • 00:08:36.110 --> 00:08:38.000
  • But as you read through the different characters
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:40.240
  • not all of them are mentioned, but as you read
  • 00:08:40.250 --> 00:08:43.220
  • through the different characters there are some really
  • 00:08:43.230 --> 00:08:46.100
  • interesting stories about these people that reminds us how human
  • 00:08:46.110 --> 00:08:50.290
  • they are.
  • 00:08:51.000 --> 00:08:52.190
  • And the Bible is pretty clear we are all family.
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:58.200
  • All of us are family.
  • 00:08:59.110 --> 00:09:00.230
  • Now, we're family because we're humans and in spite of some
  • 00:09:00.240 --> 00:09:05.280
  • people to think we all descended from monkeys, the Bible's pretty
  • 00:09:05.290 --> 00:09:10.000
  • clear that's not the way it happened.
  • 00:09:10.010 --> 00:09:11.100
  • We are all related to Adam and Eve.
  • 00:09:11.110 --> 00:09:13.110
  • And then if you think we lost track from that point, we're all
  • 00:09:13.120 --> 00:09:16.170
  • related to Noah.
  • 00:09:16.180 --> 00:09:20.000
  • Acts 17:26, we all have common DNA.
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:24.060
  • "He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:27.250
  • on all the face of the earth, and He has determined their
  • 00:09:27.260 --> 00:09:30.230
  • preappointed times and the boundaries of their
  • 00:09:30.240 --> 00:09:33.040
  • dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord and hope that they
  • 00:09:33.050 --> 00:09:36.210
  • might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far
  • 00:09:36.220 --> 00:09:40.010
  • from every one of us."
  • 00:09:40.020 --> 00:09:42.050
  • Through the Holy Spirit, we all kind of get the DNA of Jesus
  • 00:09:42.060 --> 00:09:46.050
  • transplanted, but we are all related to each other.
  • 00:09:46.060 --> 00:09:49.210
  • And if you have a car accident and you need a blood transfusion
  • 00:09:49.220 --> 00:09:52.150
  • the people in the hospital are going to look at the blood type,
  • 00:09:52.160 --> 00:09:56.040
  • and they're not going to look and say, "Wow, I wonder are they
  • 00:09:56.050 --> 00:09:58.150
  • Hispanic, or are they Anglo, or they Chinese," and they don't
  • 00:09:58.160 --> 00:10:01.290
  • care.
  • 00:10:02.000 --> 00:10:03.290
  • They just want to know is it oh by the way I know what Jesus's
  • 00:10:04.000 --> 00:10:06.090
  • blood type was.
  • 00:10:06.100 --> 00:10:08.170
  • Called B+.
  • 00:10:08.180 --> 00:10:11.290
  • So, they're just going to want to know are you O+ or whatever
  • 00:10:12.000 --> 00:10:14.270
  • you are.
  • 00:10:14.280 --> 00:10:16.080
  • Do you have the right blood type because now if they give you
  • 00:10:16.090 --> 00:10:19.180
  • lizard blood it'll kill you.
  • 00:10:19.190 --> 00:10:21.270
  • It's gotta be human blood because we're all related.
  • 00:10:21.280 --> 00:10:25.160
  • Just as long as it's the right blood type.
  • 00:10:25.170 --> 00:10:28.080
  • Romans 5:12 problem is that through one of our ancestors we
  • 00:10:28.090 --> 00:10:34.090
  • acquired a disease.
  • 00:10:35.230 --> 00:10:37.270
  • "Through one man's sin," Romans 5:12, "sin entered the world
  • 00:10:37.280 --> 00:10:41.110
  • and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because
  • 00:10:41.120 --> 00:10:44.280
  • all sinned."
  • 00:10:44.290 --> 00:10:46.080
  • Now, that doesn't sound fair.
  • 00:10:46.090 --> 00:10:48.140
  • I was doing a little research.
  • 00:10:48.150 --> 00:10:49.240
  • Do you know there are certain diseases that are particular
  • 00:10:49.250 --> 00:10:52.140
  • to certain races.
  • 00:10:52.150 --> 00:10:54.280
  • You've heard of sickle cell anemia anemia.
  • 00:10:54.290 --> 00:10:57.000
  • It is more prominent among African Americans, though
  • 00:10:57.010 --> 00:11:00.270
  • there are some Latin Americans that get it.
  • 00:11:00.280 --> 00:11:03.120
  • Cystic fibrosis is more prominent among Jews.
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:06.000
  • There are several diseases that Jews principally get and you see
  • 00:11:06.010 --> 00:11:09.240
  • around the world that there are certain diseases that are more
  • 00:11:09.250 --> 00:11:12.110
  • kind of isolated in certain groups, partly because of their
  • 00:11:12.120 --> 00:11:16.210
  • isolation.
  • 00:11:16.220 --> 00:11:18.020
  • There's not enough outside genes that come in and they can get
  • 00:11:18.030 --> 00:11:21.210
  • genetic deficiencies.
  • 00:11:21.220 --> 00:11:24.030
  • There are certain diseases that certain breeds of dog get
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:27.200
  • because through inbreeding over years.
  • 00:11:27.210 --> 00:11:30.280
  • They don't get the genetic makeup that they should
  • 00:11:30.290 --> 00:11:34.110
  • initially have.
  • 00:11:34.120 --> 00:11:36.000
  • And so, we because we're related to Adam, we've got a problem.
  • 00:11:36.010 --> 00:11:42.040
  • See, Adam and Eve originally were made in God's image
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:44.270
  • but through sin, the DNA, the gene somethin' was damaged.
  • 00:11:44.280 --> 00:11:50.030
  • Before Adam was motivated by love and after sin
  • 00:11:50.040 --> 00:11:53.150
  • the compass needle flipped around and now we're motivated
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:55.150
  • by self.
  • 00:11:55.160 --> 00:11:57.180
  • And every human that is born, how many have sinned?
  • 00:11:57.190 --> 00:12:02.120
  • We've all got this disease.
  • 00:12:02.130 --> 00:12:05.210
  • We've got a problem.
  • 00:12:05.220 --> 00:12:07.060
  • Through one man's sin sin entered the world and all have
  • 00:12:07.070 --> 00:12:10.130
  • sinned.
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:11.230
  • Romans 5:14, "Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even
  • 00:12:11.240 --> 00:12:16.190
  • over those who had not sinned.
  • 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:18.000
  • According to the likeness of the transgression of Adam,
  • 00:12:18.010 --> 00:12:20.150
  • who is a type of Him who is to come."
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:22.180
  • Death reigned.
  • 00:12:22.190 --> 00:12:23.280
  • He's talkin' about even through the that Old Testament
  • 00:12:23.290 --> 00:12:26.060
  • time up to Moses and beyond then.
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:28.260
  • So, we've all got this hereditary problem that has
  • 00:12:28.270 --> 00:12:33.040
  • caused sin.
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:35.060
  • And it affects us in our relationships in our home.
  • 00:12:35.070 --> 00:12:39.070

  • 00:13:17.240 --> 00:13:22.110
  • Doug: You'll see it in the Bible, Cain killed Abel.
  • 00:13:22.120 --> 00:13:26.140
  • David's son tried to kill him.
  • 00:13:26.150 --> 00:13:28.150
  • His king tried to kill him.
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:30.160
  • Jesus's brothers didn't understand who he was.
  • 00:13:30.170 --> 00:13:33.280
  • You can see that there's rivalry that goes on between Jacob.
  • 00:13:33.290 --> 00:13:38.260
  • Esau threatened to kill Jacob.
  • 00:13:38.270 --> 00:13:40.210
  • Happens in the families even in the Bible.
  • 00:13:40.220 --> 00:13:43.250
  • Heard about a husband and wife celebrating 60 years
  • 00:13:43.260 --> 00:13:46.280
  • and the local paper came by and they said, "That's
  • 00:13:46.290 --> 00:13:48.220
  • commendable.
  • 00:13:48.230 --> 00:13:50.030
  • To what do you attribute your long and happy marriage?"
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:53.250
  • And the husband said, "Well, when we got married we made
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:56.040
  • an agreement that I would make all of the major decisions
  • 00:13:56.050 --> 00:13:59.120
  • and she would make all of the minor decisions.
  • 00:13:59.130 --> 00:14:02.010
  • And wouldn't you know after 60 years of marriage, we've never
  • 00:14:02.020 --> 00:14:04.170
  • had to make a major decision."
  • 00:14:04.180 --> 00:14:09.170
  • So, that's how they got along.
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:14.050
  • And something else that we've noticed is that we have family
  • 00:14:14.060 --> 00:14:19.050
  • resemblance.
  • 00:14:19.060 --> 00:14:21.100
  • Whenever I see families traveling I always look
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:24.210
  • at the kids and then I look at the parents and I try to just
  • 00:14:24.220 --> 00:14:27.050
  • for my own entertainment see who looks like who.
  • 00:14:27.060 --> 00:14:30.200
  • Do we tend to bear things similar to our parents, there's
  • 00:14:30.210 --> 00:14:35.250
  • likenesses that happened there.
  • 00:14:35.260 --> 00:14:37.210
  • Someone said the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree.
  • 00:14:37.220 --> 00:14:43.080
  • I remember hearing one time about during World War II, you
  • 00:14:43.090 --> 00:14:47.040
  • know they took children out of the city 'cause bomb--
  • 00:14:47.050 --> 00:14:50.050
  • London was being bombed by the Nazis just relentless
  • 00:14:50.060 --> 00:14:54.040
  • bombing.
  • 00:14:54.050 --> 00:14:55.150
  • And so, many of the children were taken out into the country
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:57.090
  • and put in homes to try to preserve the children because
  • 00:14:57.100 --> 00:15:01.030
  • so many adults had to work in the city.
  • 00:15:01.040 --> 00:15:02.210
  • They were dying from the daily bombings of the Nazis.
  • 00:15:02.220 --> 00:15:05.200
  • And many of the children were separated from the parents
  • 00:15:05.210 --> 00:15:08.080
  • for years and some of the parents died and they
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:10.110
  • never got reunited.
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:11.210
  • And there were large orphanages and there's one family that had
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:14.260
  • like five children in it.
  • 00:15:14.270 --> 00:15:17.010
  • After the war was over they were trying to find out if either
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:20.060
  • their parents had survived.
  • 00:15:20.070 --> 00:15:21.180
  • And they understood they had lost their mother, but someone
  • 00:15:21.190 --> 00:15:25.040
  • had gotten word that the father was alive.
  • 00:15:25.050 --> 00:15:28.040
  • So, the son went into London to look for the father, found
  • 00:15:28.050 --> 00:15:31.190
  • the father was in a hospital.
  • 00:15:31.200 --> 00:15:33.000
  • He was recovering.
  • 00:15:33.010 --> 00:15:34.100
  • Told the father the brothers and sisters were all okay,
  • 00:15:34.110 --> 00:15:36.260
  • and he was going to bring back word, and he came back and he
  • 00:15:36.270 --> 00:15:39.240
  • told his siblings, "Father's alive."
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:41.290
  • Some of these kids were young.
  • 00:15:42.000 --> 00:15:43.100
  • They hadn't seen their father in five years and they said,
  • 00:15:43.110 --> 00:15:46.120
  • "What's he like?"
  • 00:15:46.130 --> 00:15:47.280
  • And the older brother, he smiled and he said, "Well, they tell me
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:51.230
  • he's the spitting image of me."
  • 00:15:51.240 --> 00:15:55.240
  • When God sent Jesus into the world part
  • 00:15:55.250 --> 00:16:00.130
  • of the reason Christ came was to show us what the Father's
  • 00:16:00.140 --> 00:16:03.070
  • like.
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:04.170
  • Amen?
  • 00:16:04.180 --> 00:16:05.280
  • So, He said, "If you've seen Me, you've seen the Father."
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:09.150
  • He wants us to know that He is the image of the Father.
  • 00:16:09.160 --> 00:16:13.110
  • Christ became one of us.
  • 00:16:13.120 --> 00:16:16.020
  • The Bible says in Philippians 2:7, "But He made Himself of no
  • 00:16:16.030 --> 00:16:20.010
  • reputation taking the form of a bondservant and coming
  • 00:16:20.020 --> 00:16:24.090
  • in the likeness of men."
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:25.250
  • If God had come through Jesus with all of His glory and His
  • 00:16:25.260 --> 00:16:28.270
  • dazzling brightness and power we couldn't have born it but He
  • 00:16:28.280 --> 00:16:32.040
  • came so much like a man that when He was walking among man
  • 00:16:32.050 --> 00:16:35.190
  • they had no idea that He was any different.
  • 00:16:35.200 --> 00:16:38.090
  • Bible says, "There's no outward form or comeliness that we
  • 00:16:38.100 --> 00:16:40.240
  • should desire Him."
  • 00:16:40.250 --> 00:16:42.170
  • Hebrews 4:15, "We do not have a High Priest who cannot
  • 00:16:42.180 --> 00:16:46.020
  • sympathize with our weakness, but He was in all points tempted
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:49.270
  • as we are yet without sin."
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:53.170
  • So, then we read on here.
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:56.180
  • In Galatians chapter 3 now it tells us that after Christ came
  • 00:16:56.190 --> 00:17:02.210
  • He came to provide adoption for us.
  • 00:17:05.010 --> 00:17:08.140
  • The Bible says, "For you are all children of God by faith
  • 00:17:08.150 --> 00:17:12.280
  • in Jesus."
  • 00:17:12.290 --> 00:17:14.150
  • We become adopted into this new family.
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:17.220
  • Continuing with Romans chapter 5, verse 18, "Therefore as
  • 00:17:17.230 --> 00:17:22.240
  • through one man's offense," Adam, "judgment came on all men,
  • 00:17:22.250 --> 00:17:27.020
  • resulting in condemnation."
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:28.210
  • 'Cause we all sinned, "Even so through one man's righteous
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:33.250
  • act," Jesus coming, his dying on the cross, "The free gift,
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:38.170
  • the cure came to all men, resulting in justification
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:43.210
  • of life."
  • 00:17:43.220 --> 00:17:45.010
  • The sin of Adam resulted in death.
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:46.180
  • The sacrifice of Jesus offers us life.
  • 00:17:46.190 --> 00:17:49.130
  • Now, I just want to pause right here and emphasize a point.
  • 00:17:49.140 --> 00:17:52.100
  • How many of you believe that because of the fall of Adam that
  • 00:17:52.110 --> 00:17:56.090
  • you're having problems today?
  • 00:17:56.100 --> 00:17:58.050
  • Is that real to you?
  • 00:17:58.060 --> 00:17:59.160
  • Do you struggle with sin?
  • 00:17:59.170 --> 00:18:01.060
  • I don't see too many hands going up and I see your heads nodding.
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:03.050
  • You're just-- is it real?
  • 00:18:03.060 --> 00:18:05.180
  • You really know that because of what happened to Adam it
  • 00:18:05.190 --> 00:18:08.020
  • affects my life today.
  • 00:18:08.030 --> 00:18:09.130
  • I know it.
  • 00:18:09.140 --> 00:18:10.230
  • Yeah.
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:12.030
  • It's like Paul said, we struggle with this nature inside.
  • 00:18:12.040 --> 00:18:17.000
  • The sacrifice of Jesus liberating you from that disease
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:22.180
  • is just as real through faith.
  • 00:18:22.190 --> 00:18:26.120
  • This is what Paul is saying and when you catch this,
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:28.050
  • friends, this is the message of righteousness by faith.
  • 00:18:28.060 --> 00:18:31.200
  • Through the sin of Adam we've all got big problems.
  • 00:18:31.210 --> 00:18:35.040
  • We're tempted, we fall, we sin, sin brings all kinds of misery
  • 00:18:35.050 --> 00:18:38.050
  • in its wake, but through the sacrifice
  • 00:18:38.060 --> 00:18:41.150
  • and the victory of Jesus, we can be born again, adopted
  • 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:46.190
  • into a new family that has life instead of death.
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:51.130
  • Through Adam there's a death penalty, through life there--
  • 00:18:51.140 --> 00:18:55.290
  • through Jesus there is life that comes.
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:58.030
  • That's good news.
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:18:59.140
  • You know this is the story of the gospel.
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:01.020
  • It says in Romans 8:14, "For as many as are led by the Spirit,
  • 00:19:01.030 --> 00:19:05.180
  • these are the sons of God.
  • 00:19:05.190 --> 00:19:07.260
  • For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again
  • 00:19:07.270 --> 00:19:10.120
  • to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom
  • 00:19:10.130 --> 00:19:15.280
  • we cry out, 'Abba, Father.'
  • 00:19:15.290 --> 00:19:19.020
  • The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are
  • 00:19:19.030 --> 00:19:22.160
  • children of God."
  • 00:19:22.170 --> 00:19:23.260
  • And I know you might think well, aren't we all children of God?
  • 00:19:23.270 --> 00:19:25.070
  • No, Jesus said to some of the religious leaders,
  • 00:19:25.080 --> 00:19:28.120
  • "You're of your father the devil."
  • 00:19:28.130 --> 00:19:31.230
  • Not everyone is a child of God.
  • 00:19:31.240 --> 00:19:33.130
  • I mean, we're all children of God in that He loves
  • 00:19:33.140 --> 00:19:35.170
  • everybody, but you're not adopted into the family unless
  • 00:19:35.180 --> 00:19:39.060
  • you're born again in the family.
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:42.160
  • It says, "By which we cry, 'Abba, Father,' the Spirit
  • 00:19:42.170 --> 00:19:44.270
  • Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children
  • 00:19:44.280 --> 00:19:47.150
  • of God and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint
  • 00:19:47.160 --> 00:19:51.230
  • heirs with Christ."
  • 00:19:51.240 --> 00:19:53.030
  • What is an heir?
  • 00:19:53.040 --> 00:19:54.190
  • An heir is someone that inherits.
  • 00:19:54.200 --> 00:19:58.280
  • You know, I remember reading about a couple of boys that were
  • 00:19:58.290 --> 00:20:03.000
  • registering at a new school one day.
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:05.020
  • They were about seven years old and the teacher was writing
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:06.280
  • down their names.
  • 00:20:06.290 --> 00:20:08.080
  • They were brothers and she asked their birthdays.
  • 00:20:08.090 --> 00:20:09.190
  • One said, "I was born April 7."
  • 00:20:09.200 --> 00:20:10.290
  • The other one said, "I'm born April 21."
  • 00:20:11.000 --> 00:20:12.160
  • He said, "Wait a second.
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:14.010
  • I've heard of twins that were born on different days, you
  • 00:20:14.020 --> 00:20:16.090
  • know, within a few hours, but you guys can't be twins.
  • 00:20:16.100 --> 00:20:18.140
  • You don't look like twins."
  • 00:20:18.150 --> 00:20:20.090
  • And she said, "How can this be?"
  • 00:20:20.100 --> 00:20:21.200
  • And they said, "We're adopted."
  • 00:20:21.210 --> 00:20:23.280
  • And the teacher without thinking she said, "Just curious, which
  • 00:20:23.290 --> 00:20:26.150
  • one?"
  • 00:20:26.160 --> 00:20:27.260
  • And they said, "We don't know.
  • 00:20:27.270 --> 00:20:31.080
  • Dad says he loves us both and he can't remember."
  • 00:20:31.090 --> 00:20:35.290
  • So, when we're adopted into the family, God looks
  • 00:20:36.000 --> 00:20:40.010
  • upon us with the same love as His Son.
  • 00:20:40.020 --> 00:20:43.200
  • What he said to Jesus at His baptism, "This is My beloved Son
  • 00:20:43.210 --> 00:20:47.150
  • in whom I'm well pleased."
  • 00:20:47.160 --> 00:20:48.250
  • He says that to us.
  • 00:20:48.260 --> 00:20:51.160
  • "To Timothy, my own son in the faith," what's
  • 00:20:51.170 --> 00:20:54.100
  • the language of the apostles?
  • 00:20:54.110 --> 00:20:56.130
  • It's the language of a family.
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:58.190
  • Matthew 12:46 through 50, while Christ was talking
  • 00:20:58.200 --> 00:21:02.060
  • to the multitudes His mother and His brothers stood outside
  • 00:21:02.070 --> 00:21:05.140
  • seeking to speak with Him.
  • 00:21:05.150 --> 00:21:06.240
  • And they said, "Look, you know, we're family.
  • 00:21:06.250 --> 00:21:08.050
  • We have priority.
  • 00:21:08.060 --> 00:21:09.150
  • Tell these people we want to talk to You.
  • 00:21:09.160 --> 00:21:10.260
  • Get over here right now."
  • 00:21:10.270 --> 00:21:12.060
  • "And Jesus said to him the one who beckoned Him, 'Look, your
  • 00:21:12.070 --> 00:21:16.140
  • mother and your brother,' they said, 'are standing outside.'
  • 00:21:16.150 --> 00:21:19.110
  • He answered and said, 'Who is My mother and who are My brothers?'
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:23.200
  • He stretched out His hand towards His disciples.
  • 00:21:23.210 --> 00:21:26.240
  • He said, 'For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven
  • 00:21:26.250 --> 00:21:31.140
  • they are My brother and My sister and My mother.'" When
  • 00:21:31.150 --> 00:21:35.220
  • you're adopted into his family it's because we obey a different
  • 00:21:35.230 --> 00:21:41.080
  • constitution.
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:42.180
  • We want to follow His Word.
  • 00:21:42.190 --> 00:21:44.290
  • Now, what do we get?
  • 00:21:45.000 --> 00:21:46.090
  • Are there any benefits of being adopted and being part of His
  • 00:21:46.100 --> 00:21:48.250
  • family?
  • 00:21:48.260 --> 00:21:50.050
  • Peter asked what we all think.
  • 00:21:50.060 --> 00:21:52.020
  • Peter began to say, "Lord, we've left everything to follow you,
  • 00:21:52.030 --> 00:21:54.190
  • what will we have?"
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:21:57.130
  • And Jesus answered and said, "Assuredly, I say to you there
  • 00:21:57.140 --> 00:22:00.260
  • is no one who has left house, or brothers, or sisters,
  • 00:22:00.270 --> 00:22:04.200
  • or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands."
  • 00:22:04.210 --> 00:22:10.000
  • Sometimes when a person made a decision to be a Christian,
  • 00:22:10.010 --> 00:22:13.110
  • they were alienated from their family.
  • 00:22:13.120 --> 00:22:16.010
  • They were shunned.
  • 00:22:16.020 --> 00:22:17.240
  • And if you are a Jew and you accepted Christ after that great
  • 00:22:17.250 --> 00:22:20.150
  • persecution arose you could lose your property.
  • 00:22:20.160 --> 00:22:23.170
  • You realize one reason the genealogies are in the Bible
  • 00:22:23.180 --> 00:22:26.020
  • is because property was held by families.
  • 00:22:26.030 --> 00:22:29.020
  • You were not supposed to take your your inheritance of your
  • 00:22:29.030 --> 00:22:32.110
  • land sell it to another tribe.
  • 00:22:32.120 --> 00:22:33.210
  • You read the story of Naboth's vineyard, the King Ahab said
  • 00:22:33.220 --> 00:22:38.020
  • to Naboth, "I'd like to have your property."
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:39.280
  • Says, "I can't the law says it's my family's."
  • 00:22:39.290 --> 00:22:43.070
  • You couldn't lose your family inheritance.
  • 00:22:43.080 --> 00:22:44.180
  • So, the genealogy really was a deed and your genealogy
  • 00:22:44.190 --> 00:22:48.270
  • in Christ gives you an inheritance to a land doesn't
  • 00:22:48.280 --> 00:22:51.280
  • it?
  • 00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:53.090
  • "You'll receive hundredfold more, a hundred times more now
  • 00:22:53.100 --> 00:22:57.240
  • in this time-- houses, and brothers, and sisters,
  • 00:22:57.250 --> 00:23:01.120
  • and mothers, and children, and lands with persecutions," he
  • 00:23:01.130 --> 00:23:05.060
  • puts in, "and in the age to come eternal life."
  • 00:23:05.070 --> 00:23:10.040
  • And God promises to pull His family together near the end.
  • 00:23:10.050 --> 00:23:12.250
  • Some of you are praying for loved ones.
  • 00:23:12.260 --> 00:23:15.220
  • Some of us got kids and they do, and all of us are very proud
  • 00:23:15.230 --> 00:23:21.230
  • of our kids until they act foolish and then we don't
  • 00:23:22.000 --> 00:23:24.170
  • believe in heredity anymore.
  • 00:23:24.180 --> 00:23:28.120
  • But we all have kids we're praying for.
  • 00:23:28.130 --> 00:23:31.000
  • The Bible says, "I will say to the north," Isaiah 43:6,
  • 00:23:31.010 --> 00:23:34.160
  • "'Give them up' and to the south, 'Do not keep
  • 00:23:34.170 --> 00:23:37.100
  • them back.
  • 00:23:37.110 --> 00:23:38.210
  • Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends
  • 00:23:38.220 --> 00:23:42.030
  • of the earth.
  • 00:23:42.040 --> 00:23:43.140
  • Everyone who is called by My name who I have created for My
  • 00:23:43.150 --> 00:23:46.160
  • glory.'" God says that He will save thy children.
  • 00:23:46.170 --> 00:23:52.170
  • You know, in Christ, we are all blessed with the blessings that
  • 00:23:53.100 --> 00:23:56.170
  • God gave Abraham.
  • 00:23:56.180 --> 00:23:57.280
  • You know God told Abraham in Genesis 12, I will bless
  • 00:23:57.290 --> 00:24:01.110
  • those who bless you and I will curse him, who curses you.
  • 00:24:01.120 --> 00:24:04.070
  • And in you, in your seed, in your families, all the Earth
  • 00:24:04.080 --> 00:24:08.010
  • will be blessed and then you jump to the New Testament.
  • 00:24:08.020 --> 00:24:10.170
  • That's Genesis, Old Testament, go to the G in the New
  • 00:24:10.180 --> 00:24:13.050
  • Testament.
  • 00:24:13.060 --> 00:24:14.150
  • That's Galatians.
  • 00:24:14.160 --> 00:24:15.260
  • It says, If you are Christ's then you are Abraham's seed
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:17.240
  • and heirs.
  • 00:24:17.250 --> 00:24:19.140
  • You are adopted into the family and you are an heir, what's
  • 00:24:19.150 --> 00:24:21.270
  • an heir get?
  • 00:24:21.280 --> 00:24:23.080
  • An inheritance and you are heirs according to the promise.
  • 00:24:23.090 --> 00:24:26.250
  • All the blessings that God made and promised to Abraham belong
  • 00:24:26.260 --> 00:24:30.160
  • to you.
  • 00:24:30.170 --> 00:24:32.090
  • He promised him a city not made with man's hands, didn't he?
  • 00:24:32.100 --> 00:24:36.090
  • He promised them a place in the Promised Land.
  • 00:24:36.100 --> 00:24:39.110
  • "Though your sins be as scarlet, They will be white as snow;
  • 00:24:39.120 --> 00:24:42.140
  • Though they be red like crimson, They will be like wool."
  • 00:24:42.150 --> 00:24:47.100
  • Who was it Billy Graham, or it was Billy Sunday used to say, "I
  • 00:24:47.110 --> 00:24:50.220
  • don't know, how a black cow eats green grass and make yellow
  • 00:24:50.230 --> 00:24:54.090
  • butter and white milk, but I believe it."
  • 00:24:54.100 --> 00:24:58.290
  • And Jesus is telling us that He's offering us the antidote.
  • 00:24:59.000 --> 00:25:02.050
  • Now, when we come to Christ through faith, and we believe
  • 00:25:02.060 --> 00:25:05.230
  • in His sacrifice, the Bible says that you can be born again.
  • 00:25:05.240 --> 00:25:09.270
  • You are adopted.
  • 00:25:09.280 --> 00:25:11.140
  • You are washed in the blood and you are part of the family
  • 00:25:11.150 --> 00:25:15.010
  • in heaven.
