  • - KRIS VALLOTTON: IN OTHER
  • 00:00:47.210 --> 00:00:48.110
  • IN YOUR LIFE, IT'S THE NATURE
  • 00:00:49.070 --> 00:00:50.260
  • OF THE SAVIOR TO MAKE UP FOR
  • 00:00:50.260 --> 00:00:52.110
  • THAT LOSS, BECAUSE HE WAS NOT
  • 00:00:52.110 --> 00:00:53.210
  • OF THE LINEAGE OF CAIN, BUT HE
  • 00:00:53.210 --> 00:00:56.100
  • WAS THE LINEAGE OF THE ONE WHO
  • 00:00:56.100 --> 00:00:59.020
  • REPLACED HER PAIN...WITH HIS
  • 00:00:59.020 --> 00:01:00.210
  • - KRIS: HI, I'M KRIS VALLOTTON.
  • 00:01:13.170 --> 00:01:14.120
  • I'M SO EXCITED TO SHARE THE

  • FIRST PART OF MY TWO-PART
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:18.070
  • MESSAGE ENTITLED: JOURNEY TO
  • 00:01:18.070 --> 00:01:19.090
  • DIVINE DESTINY.
  • 00:01:19.090 --> 00:01:20.130
  • GOD'S PERFECT PLAN FOR CHRIST'S
  • 00:01:20.130 --> 00:01:21.250
  • BIRTH ON THE EARTH DIDN'T
  • 00:01:21.250 --> 00:01:23.170
  • EXACTLY WORK OUT THE WAY THAT
  • 00:01:23.170 --> 00:01:24.290
  • MARY AND JOSEPH MIGHT
  • 00:01:24.290 --> 00:01:26.030
  • HAVE EXPECTED.
  • 00:01:26.030 --> 00:01:27.180
  • WHEN WE HEAR ABOUT GOD'S CALL,
  • 00:01:27.180 --> 00:01:28.190
  • IT'S TEMPTING FOR US TO THINK
  • 00:01:28.190 --> 00:01:30.100
  • THAT EVERYTHING'S GOING TO WORK
  • 00:01:30.100 --> 00:01:32.020
  • OUT JUST PERFECTLY.
  • 00:01:32.020 --> 00:01:33.110
  • INSTEAD, WE NEED TO TRUST IN
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:34.260
  • GOD'S ABILITY TO MAKE ALL
  • 00:01:34.260 --> 00:01:35.250
  • AND "ALL THINGS" SOMETIMES
  • 00:01:39.180 --> 00:01:40.070
  • INCLUDES CHALLENGING AND
  • 00:01:40.070 --> 00:01:40.260
  • DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:01:40.260 --> 00:01:42.230
  • I PRAY THIS MESSAGE HELPS YOU
  • 00:01:42.230 --> 00:01:43.270
  • TO SEE GOD'S PLAN AND PURPOSES
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:44.260
  • OVER YOUR LIFE AND THAT YOU
  • 00:01:44.260 --> 00:01:46.270
  • WOULD ENCOUNTER HIS PRESENCE IN
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:47.280
  • WHATEVER SEASON YOU'RE
  • 00:01:47.280 --> 00:01:49.110
  • WALKING IN.
  • 00:01:49.110 --> 00:01:51.150
  • HE IS WITH YOU.
  • 00:01:51.150 --> 00:01:52.070
  • AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:01:52.070 --> 00:01:53.080
  • HE'S WORKING ON YOUR BEHALF.
  • 00:01:53.080 --> 00:01:54.120
  • MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM ALL THE
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:55.280
  • BETHEL FAMILY, AND BLESSINGS ON
  • 00:01:55.280 --> 00:01:57.150
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:02.020
  • WHY DON'T YOU TURN TO
  • 00:02:02.020 --> 00:02:02.240
  • AND, I WANNA, UM, JUST FIRST OF
  • 00:02:06.000 --> 00:02:06.220
  • ALL-- THE BOOK OF MATTHEW,
  • 00:02:06.220 --> 00:02:07.110
  • UM...THE FIRST GOSPEL IN THE
  • 00:02:07.110 --> 00:02:08.260
  • NEW TESTAMENT ACTUALLY OPENS
  • 00:02:09.210 --> 00:02:12.210
  • WITH THE GENEALOGY OF JESUS.
  • 00:02:12.210 --> 00:02:13.110
  • AND WHAT'S INTERESTING IS
  • 00:02:13.110 --> 00:02:16.050
  • THERE'S ACTUALLY TWO
  • 00:02:16.050 --> 00:02:17.280
  • GENEALOGIES OF JESUS, THE
  • 00:02:17.280 --> 00:02:19.150
  • LINEAGE OF JESUS.
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:21.140
  • THERE'S ONE IN LUKE AND
  • 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:22.220
  • THERE'S ONE IN MATTHEW.
  • 00:02:23.110 --> 00:02:26.110
  • INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, IN LUKE--
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:28.140
  • IN MATTHEW -- WHICH WE'RE GOING
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:30.010
  • TO READ JUST PART OF IT,
  • 00:02:30.010 --> 00:02:31.100
  • WE WON'T READ ALL THE NAMES --
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:32.220
  • THE GENEALOGY OF JESUS
  • 00:02:32.220 --> 00:02:35.000
  • IN MATTHEW BEGINS
  • 00:02:35.000 --> 00:02:36.000
  • WITH ABRAHAM.
  • 00:02:36.000 --> 00:02:37.010
  • AND THE GENEALOGY IN THE BOOK
  • 00:02:37.280 --> 00:02:40.280
  • OF LUKE ACTUALLY STARTS FROM
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:43.120
  • THE-- JESUS AND WORKS
  • 00:02:43.120 --> 00:02:46.080
  • BACKWARDS, BUT, IF YOU WILL,
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:47.150
  • IT BEGINS WITH GOD, ADAM, AND
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:49.080
  • AND, ALSO, THERE ARE-- AS YOU
  • 00:02:55.180 --> 00:02:58.180
  • CAN IMAGINE, THERE ARE
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:01.290
  • 42...ACTUALLY 41--
  • 00:03:01.290 --> 00:03:02.160
  • WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT
  • 00:03:02.160 --> 00:03:03.240
  • IN A MINUTE.
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:04.130
  • THERE ARE 42 NAMES MENTIONED IN
  • 00:03:04.130 --> 00:03:05.290
  • THE LINEAGE OF JESUS IN THE
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.180
  • BOOK OF MATTHEW AND THERE ARE
  • 00:03:07.180 --> 00:03:08.270
  • 77 NAMES MENTIONED IN THE
  • 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:11.050
  • LINEAGE IN THE BOOK OF LUKE --
  • 00:03:11.050 --> 00:03:12.220
  • FOR SOME OBVIOUS REASONS,
  • 00:03:12.220 --> 00:03:15.210
  • BECAUSE LUKE GOES ALL THE WAY
  • 00:03:19.240 --> 00:03:22.240
  • BACK TO ADAM AND MATTHEW ONLY
  • 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:23.230
  • GOES BACK TO ABRAHAM, BUT
  • 00:03:23.230 --> 00:03:25.070
  • FOR SOME OTHER REASONS THAT ARE
  • 00:03:25.070 --> 00:03:25.290
  • REAL INTERESTING.
  • 00:03:25.290 --> 00:03:26.230
  • SO, LET'S PICK UP THE MATTHEW
  • 00:03:26.240 --> 00:03:29.240
  • GENEALOGY AND WE'RE JUST GONNA
  • 00:03:29.240 --> 00:03:30.220
  • READ A LITTLE PIECE OF IT AND
  • 00:03:30.220 --> 00:03:31.180
  • THEN TALK THROUGH SOME OF THE
  • 00:03:31.180 --> 00:03:33.080
  • THINGS THAT I THINK ARE QUITE
  • 00:03:33.080 --> 00:03:34.000
  • MATTHEW 1 AND WE'RE IN VERSE 1.
  • 00:03:37.020 --> 00:03:38.270
  • "THE RECORD OF THE GENEALOGY OF
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:39.270
  • JESUS THE MESSIAH..."
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:41.070
  • EVERYBODY SAY "THE MESSIAH."
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:42.040
  • [AUDIENCE REPEATS]
  • 00:03:42.040 --> 00:03:43.070
  • "...THE SON OF GOD..."
  • 00:03:43.070 --> 00:03:44.020
  • I'M SORRY.
  • 00:03:44.020 --> 00:03:45.160
  • THE SON OF DAVID.
  • 00:03:45.160 --> 00:03:46.090
  • SO, LET'S STARTS OVER.
  • 00:03:46.090 --> 00:03:47.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:03:47.220 --> 00:03:48.160
  • "THE RECORD OF THE GENEALOGY
  • 00:03:48.160 --> 00:03:49.070
  • OF JESUS..."
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:50.070
  • COME ON, SAY IT WITH ME.
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:52.060
  • [ALL REPEAT]
  • 00:03:52.060 --> 00:03:53.030
  • "...THE MESSIAH..."
  • 00:03:53.030 --> 00:03:55.110
  • [AUDIENCE REPEATS]
  • 00:03:55.110 --> 00:03:56.180
  • OKAY, HERE WE GO.
  • 00:03:56.180 --> 00:03:57.140
  • "...THE SON OF DAVID..."
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:03:58.100
  • [AUDIENCE REPEATS]
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:03:59.000
  • "...THE SON OF ABRAHAM."
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:04:00.130
  • NOW, THOSE WORDS ARE PRETTY
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:02.190
  • POWERFUL, AS YOU'LL SEE IN THE
  • 00:04:02.220 --> 00:04:05.220
  • GENEALOGY, IN JUST A MINUTE.
  • 00:04:05.220 --> 00:04:07.170
  • SO, THIS IS THE RECORD OF THE
  • 00:04:07.170 --> 00:04:09.070
  • MESSIAH, THE SON OF DAVID, THE
  • 00:04:09.190 --> 00:04:12.190
  • SON OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:04:12.190 --> 00:04:13.120
  • AND IT GOES ON TO SAY:
  • 00:04:13.120 --> 00:04:14.060
  • "ABRAHAM WAS THE FATHER OF
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:14.270
  • ISAAC, ISAAC THE FATHER OF
  • 00:04:15.050 --> 00:04:18.050
  • JACOB, AND JACOB THE FATHER OF
  • 00:04:18.050 --> 00:04:19.180
  • JUDAH AND HIS BROTHERS."
  • 00:04:19.180 --> 00:04:20.230
  • AND IT GOES THROUGH.
  • 00:04:20.230 --> 00:04:21.090
  • AND THIS IS VERY INTERESTING
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:22.010
  • GENEALOGY.
  • 00:04:22.010 --> 00:04:22.250
  • IF YOU GET SOME TIME, YOU
  • 00:04:22.250 --> 00:04:23.150
  • SHOULD READ IT.
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:24.230
  • IT'S 17 VERSES LONG.
  • 00:04:24.240 --> 00:04:27.240
  • AND, THE INTERESTING THING
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:28.130
  • IS-- IN FACT, LET ME JUST READ
  • 00:04:28.130 --> 00:04:29.140
  • YOU FROM VERSE 17 ON.
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:30.160
  • "SO, ALL THE GENERATIONS FROM
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:33.080
  • ABRAHAM TO DAVID ARE FOURTEEN
  • 00:04:34.090 --> 00:04:37.090
  • GENERATIONS;
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:38.030
  • AND FROM DAVID TO THE
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:38.230
  • DEPORTATION TO BABYLON,
  • 00:04:38.230 --> 00:04:40.110
  • WERE FOURTEEN GENERATIONS;
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:43.040
  • AND FROM THE DEPORTATION
  • 00:04:43.040 --> 00:04:43.290
  • OF BABYLON TO THE MESSIAH,
  • 00:04:43.290 --> 00:04:45.090
  • WERE FOURTEEN GENERATIONS."
  • 00:04:45.090 --> 00:04:47.170
  • SO, THIS IS A KIND OF
  • 00:04:47.170 --> 00:04:48.050
  • INTERESTING GENEALOGY BECAUSE
  • 00:04:48.050 --> 00:04:49.110
  • THE AUTHOR -- ACTUALLY, MATTHEW
  • 00:04:49.110 --> 00:04:51.260
  • -- ACTUALLY FOUND THREE SETS OF
  • 00:04:52.100 --> 00:04:55.100
  • 14 AND HE STARTS WITH THE
  • 00:04:55.100 --> 00:04:56.290
  • GENEALOGY FROM ABRAHAM TO--
  • 00:04:56.290 --> 00:04:59.070
  • I FORGOT.
  • 00:05:03.160 --> 00:05:04.100
  • HE STARTS FROM ABRAHAM TO DAVID
  • 00:05:04.100 --> 00:05:05.100
  • AND FROM DAVID TO WHEN THE
  • 00:05:05.100 --> 00:05:06.060
  • PEOPLE WENT INTO BABYLON.
  • 00:05:06.060 --> 00:05:08.230
  • AND FROM THE BABYLONIAN
  • 00:05:08.230 --> 00:05:09.120
  • CAPTIVITY TO JESUS.
  • 00:05:09.120 --> 00:05:11.280
  • AND HE COUNTS 14, 14, AND 14.
  • 00:05:12.250 --> 00:05:15.250
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING IS IF
  • 00:05:15.250 --> 00:05:16.130
  • YOU GO THROUGH AND READ ALL
  • 00:05:16.130 --> 00:05:17.230
  • THE NAMES AND COUNT THE
  • 00:05:17.230 --> 00:05:19.120
  • GENEALOGIES, YOU HAVE 14, 14,
  • 00:05:19.120 --> 00:05:21.190
  • AND 13.
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.170
  • IN OTHER WORDS, EVEN THOUGH THE
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:25.170
  • WRITER, MATTHEW, SAYS THAT
  • 00:05:25.170 --> 00:05:27.160
  • THERE WERE 14 GENERATIONS OF
  • 00:05:27.160 --> 00:05:28.280
  • THREES, WHEN HE TAKES-- WHEN HE
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:31.000
  • GETS TO THE THIRD 14 --
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:35.130
  • AM I MAKIN' ANY SENSE? --
  • 00:05:35.130 --> 00:05:36.060
  • FROM BABYLON TO JESUS,
  • 00:05:36.060 --> 00:05:38.180
  • IF YOU COUNT ALL THE NAMES,
  • 00:05:38.180 --> 00:05:40.030
  • YOU ONLY COME TO 13.
  • 00:05:40.030 --> 00:05:41.220
  • AND, I ACTUALLY LOOKED IT
  • 00:05:44.040 --> 00:05:47.040
  • UP IN SEVERAL VERSIONS AND THEN
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:47.260
  • I GOT-- AND THEN I DID A LITTLE
  • 00:05:47.260 --> 00:05:48.190
  • RESEARCH.
  • 00:05:48.190 --> 00:05:49.070
  • AND EVERYONE'S LIKE: THERE'S
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:50.030
  • ONLY 13 NAMES, EVEN THOUGH HE
  • 00:05:50.030 --> 00:05:51.000
  • SAYS THERE'S 14 GENERATIONS.
  • 00:05:51.010 --> 00:05:54.010
  • AND I THOUGHT THIS WAS REALLY
  • 00:05:54.010 --> 00:05:55.180
  • INTERESTING FOR TWO REASONS.
  • 00:05:55.180 --> 00:05:57.020
  • ONE IS: THIS IS A VERY
  • 00:05:57.020 --> 00:05:59.080
  • DIFFERENT GENEALOGY THAN IS IN
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:01.130
  • LUKE, AS I MENTIONED JUST A
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:02.240
  • MINUTE AGO.
  • 00:06:02.240 --> 00:06:04.290
  • AND I THINK THAT THIS IS THE
  • 00:06:04.290 --> 00:06:07.150
  • GENEALOGY OF JESUS' SPIRITUAL
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:08.260
  • ROOTS AS THE MESSIAH, COMING
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:10.110
  • FROM ABRAHAM, THE FATHER OF
  • 00:06:10.110 --> 00:06:11.220
  • FAITH, AND DAVID, WHOSE THRONE
  • 00:06:11.220 --> 00:06:13.190
  • JESUS WILL SIT ON FOREVER AND
  • 00:06:13.190 --> 00:06:15.180
  • FOREVER.
  • 00:06:15.180 --> 00:06:17.240
  • AND I'D LIKE TO SUGGEST THAT
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.000
  • THE 14TH...THAT THE 14TH PERSON
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:21.100
  • TO SIT IN THE LEGACY OF THE
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:24.280
  • LAST 14, IF YOU WILL -- ARE YOU
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:27.030
  • WITH ME? -- IS THAT JESUS IS
  • 00:06:27.030 --> 00:06:29.060
  • THE 13TH AND WHO WOULD BE THE
  • 00:06:29.060 --> 00:06:31.100
  • 14TH?
  • 00:06:31.100 --> 00:06:33.210
  • SEE, I PROPOSE THAT YOU'RE THE
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:35.010
  • 14TH IN A LEGACY OF 14.
  • 00:06:35.010 --> 00:06:37.110
  • AND I THINK THAT WHAT'S REALLY
  • 00:06:39.060 --> 00:06:42.060
  • INTERESTING TO ME ABOUT BOTH
  • 00:06:42.060 --> 00:06:43.220
  • THE GENEALOGY OF JESUS AND THE
  • 00:06:43.220 --> 00:06:46.050
  • BIRTH OF JESUS, AND ONE OF THE
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:49.130
  • THINGS I WAS EVEN THINKING
  • 00:06:49.130 --> 00:06:50.020
  • ABOUT, I WASN'T AWARE OF IT
  • 00:06:50.240 --> 00:06:53.240
  • THIS MORNING, BUT, AS WE
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:55.080
  • WERE WORSHIPPING, I HAD THIS
  • 00:06:55.080 --> 00:06:57.080
  • THOUGHT: WHY DOES MATTHEW OPEN
  • 00:06:57.120 --> 00:07:00.140
  • WITH THE GENEALOGY OF JESUS AND
  • 00:07:00.140 --> 00:07:02.220
  • THEN TELL US THE STORY OF THE
  • 00:07:02.220 --> 00:07:04.020
  • BIRTH?
  • 00:07:04.020 --> 00:07:05.130
  • I UNDERSTAND HE COULD HAVE DONE
  • 00:07:05.130 --> 00:07:06.080
  • IT A HUNDRED DIFFERENT WAYS,
  • 00:07:06.080 --> 00:07:07.020
  • BUT I'M LIKE: WAS THERE SOME
  • 00:07:07.020 --> 00:07:08.130
  • THOUGHT TO THAT?
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:09.270
  • WAS THERE SOME THOUGHT TO "I'M
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:11.160
  • GONNA SHARE THE GENEALOGY, THEN
  • 00:07:11.160 --> 00:07:12.270
  • I'M GONNA SHARE THE STORY"?
  • 00:07:12.270 --> 00:07:14.180
  • AND I REALLY HAVE THIS SENSE --
  • 00:07:14.180 --> 00:07:16.200
  • AND I'LL TELL YOU WHY IN JUST A
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:18.200
  • MINUTE -- THAT GOD IS MAKING A
  • 00:07:18.200 --> 00:07:20.050
  • POINT THAT WHEN JESUS CAME TO
  • 00:07:21.100 --> 00:07:24.100
  • EARTH -- AND I UNDERSTAND THE
  • 00:07:24.100 --> 00:07:25.260
  • DEATH AND ALL OF THAT, BUT I'M
  • 00:07:25.260 --> 00:07:27.120
  • JUST, RIGHT NOW, THE BIRTH --
  • 00:07:27.120 --> 00:07:28.180
  • THAT HE WAS DOING MORE THAN
  • 00:07:28.180 --> 00:07:29.160
  • JUST SAVING THE WORLD; HE WAS
  • 00:07:29.160 --> 00:07:31.090
  • CREATING, IF YOU WILL, A
  • 00:07:31.140 --> 00:07:34.140
  • CO-LABORING CONNECTION WITH THE
  • 00:07:34.140 --> 00:07:35.280
  • HUMAN RACE AND GOD.
  • 00:07:35.280 --> 00:07:37.220
  • NOW, I KNOW THAT MIGHT BE AN
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:40.100
  • EASY AMEN, BUT LET ME EXPLAIN
  • 00:07:40.100 --> 00:07:41.180
  • TO YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:07:41.180 --> 00:07:42.220
  • I MEAN.
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:44.020
  • SO, THIS IS THE GENEALOGY OF
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:45.050
  • IN LUKE 3: 23 -- YOU CAN TURN
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:50.180
  • THERE, IF YOU WANT.
  • 00:07:50.180 --> 00:07:51.110
  • "WHEN HE BEGAN HIS MINISTRY,
  • 00:07:53.080 --> 00:07:56.080
  • JESUS HIMSELF WAS ABOUT THIRTY
  • 00:07:56.080 --> 00:07:57.080
  • YEARS OF AGE, BEING, AS WAS
  • 00:07:58.000 --> 00:08:01.020
  • SUPPOSED, THE SON OF JOSEPH,
  • 00:08:01.020 --> 00:08:02.250
  • THE SON OF ELI..."
  • 00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:05.220
  • NOW, WE'RE GONNA HAVE 77 NAMES
  • 00:08:05.220 --> 00:08:06.250
  • AND IT'S GONNA END WITH THIS
  • 00:08:06.250 --> 00:08:09.170
  • THOUGHT, IN VERSE 38:
  • 00:08:09.170 --> 00:08:10.190
  • "....THE SON OF ENOSH, THE SON
  • 00:08:10.190 --> 00:08:13.090
  • OF SETH, THE SON OF ADAM, THE
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:15.030
  • SON OF GOD."
  • 00:08:15.030 --> 00:08:17.230
  • OKAY, NOW, I TOLD THIS IS THE
  • 00:08:17.230 --> 00:08:19.030
  • SOME WOULD SAY THAT THE
  • 00:08:22.190 --> 00:08:23.070
  • GENEALOGY IN MATTHEW IS THE
  • 00:08:23.070 --> 00:08:24.210
  • GENEALOGY OF MARY, ALTHOUGH
  • 00:08:24.210 --> 00:08:26.140
  • SHE'S NOT MENTIONED AND THE
  • 00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:28.200
  • LAST PERSON IN THE GENEALOGY IS
  • 00:08:28.200 --> 00:08:30.160
  • JOSEPH, AND THE GENEALOGY OF
  • 00:08:30.160 --> 00:08:32.210
  • LUKE IS ACTUALLY THE GENEALOGY
  • 00:08:32.210 --> 00:08:33.290
  • OF JOSEPH.
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:36.060
  • BECAUSE IT BEGINS WITH
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:40.050
  • "...SUPPOSING THAT HE WAS
  • 00:08:40.050 --> 00:08:41.240
  • THE SON OF JOSEPH..."
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:43.170
  • AND THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE.
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:44.080
  • BUT, WHAT'S REALLY
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:45.190
  • INTERESTING TO ME IS THAT IT
  • 00:08:47.210 --> 00:08:50.210
  • TRACES THE GENEALOGY OF JESUS
  • 00:08:50.210 --> 00:08:52.100
  • ALL THE WAY BACK TO, IF YOU
  • 00:08:52.100 --> 00:08:53.260
  • WILL -- SEE, IF YOU LOOK AT
  • 00:08:54.070 --> 00:08:57.070
  • VERSE 38 --
  • 00:08:57.070 --> 00:08:58.100
  • "...ENOSH, THE SON OF SETH,
  • 00:08:58.100 --> 00:09:00.180
  • THE SON OF ADAM,
  • 00:09:00.180 --> 00:09:01.190
  • THE SON OF GOD."
  • 00:09:01.190 --> 00:09:02.230
  • AND, IN MY MIND, THIS IS
  • 00:09:02.230 --> 00:09:04.070
  • TRACING THE LINEAGE OF JESUS'
  • 00:09:04.070 --> 00:09:07.040
  • PHYSICAL BIRTH ALL THE WAY BACK
  • 00:09:07.040 --> 00:09:07.290
  • TO ADAM AND TO GOD.
  • 00:09:08.030 --> 00:09:11.030
  • BUT DID YOU NOTICE THERE'S
  • 00:09:11.030 --> 00:09:12.030
  • REALLY ONE THING IN HERE THAT I
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:13.070
  • CAUGHT.
  • 00:09:13.070 --> 00:09:14.250
  • AND THAT IS: DID YOU NOTICE
  • 00:09:14.250 --> 00:09:15.210
  • THAT JESUS WAS NOT THE SON OF
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:17.100
  • CAIN?
  • 00:09:17.100 --> 00:09:18.140
  • REMEMBER CAIN KILLED ABEL?
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:19.180
  • AND I HAVE FORGOTTEN THIS, BUT
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:23.140
  • CAIN KILLED ABEL, AND WHEN
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:25.020
  • CAIN-- DID I SAY THAT RIGHT?
  • 00:09:25.020 --> 00:09:27.170
  • YEAH.
  • 00:09:27.170 --> 00:09:28.090
  • AND WHEN CAIN KILLED ABEL, ADAM
  • 00:09:28.090 --> 00:09:29.060
  • PRAYED AND GOD GAVE HIM ANOTHER
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:31.210
  • SON NAMED SETH.
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:33.290
  • SETH MEANS "TO REPLACE."
  • 00:09:34.040 --> 00:09:37.040
  • ISN'T IT INTERESTING THAT THE
  • 00:09:37.170 --> 00:09:40.170
  • LINEAGE OF JESUS, THE SAVIOR,
  • 00:09:40.170 --> 00:09:42.000
  • DID NOT COME FROM CAIN BUT IT
  • 00:09:42.000 --> 00:09:44.290
  • IN OTHER WORDS, WHENEVER
  • 00:09:49.000 --> 00:09:50.060
  • THERE'S A LOSS IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.120
  • IT'S THE NATURE OF THE SAVIOR
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:54.180
  • TO MAKE UP FOR THAT LOSS.
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:56.250
  • BECAUSE HE WAS NOT OF THE
  • 00:09:56.250 --> 00:09:58.180
  • LINEAGE OF CAIN.
  • 00:09:58.180 --> 00:10:01.170
  • BUT HE WAS THE LINEAGE OF THE
  • 00:10:01.170 --> 00:10:02.240
  • ONE WHO REPLACED YOUR PAIN WITH
  • 00:10:02.240 --> 00:10:04.170
  • THIS REDEMPTION.
  • 00:10:05.080 --> 00:10:08.080
  • IS THAT A GOOD WORD,
  • 00:10:08.080 --> 00:10:09.040
  • RIGHT THERE?
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:09.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:10:13.060 --> 00:10:16.060
  • SO, LET'S TALK A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:10:16.060 --> 00:10:16.260
  • ABOUT THE BIRTH OF CHRIST.
  • 00:10:16.260 --> 00:10:18.080
  • IN LUKE 1, WE'LL START THERE.
  • 00:10:18.080 --> 00:10:19.030
  • VERSE 26: "NOW, IN THE SIXTH
  • 00:10:19.030 --> 00:10:21.020
  • MONTH, THE ANGEL GABRIEL WAS
  • 00:10:21.020 --> 00:10:23.020
  • SENT FROM GOD TO A CITY IN
  • 00:10:23.020 --> 00:10:25.020
  • GALILEE CALLED NAZARETH, TO A
  • 00:10:25.020 --> 00:10:27.070
  • VIRGIN ENGAGED TO A MAN WHOSE
  • 00:10:27.070 --> 00:10:30.040
  • NAME WAS JOSEPH, OF THE
  • 00:10:30.040 --> 00:10:32.000
  • DESCENDANTS OF DAVID; AND THE
  • 00:10:32.000 --> 00:10:33.230
  • VIRGIN'S NAME WAS MARY.
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:37.090
  • AND COMING IN, HE SAID TO HER,
  • 00:10:37.090 --> 00:10:38.230
  • 'GREETINGS, FAVORED ONE!
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:41.210
  • THE LORD IS WITH YOU.'
  • 00:10:41.210 --> 00:10:42.080
  • BUT SHE WAS VERY PERPLEXED AT
  • 00:10:42.080 --> 00:10:43.100
  • THIS STATEMENT, AND KEPT
  • 00:10:43.100 --> 00:10:44.150
  • PONDERING, LIKE, WHAT KIND OF
  • 00:10:44.150 --> 00:10:45.110
  • SALUTATION IS THIS?
  • 00:10:45.110 --> 00:10:46.070
  • THE ANGEL SAID TO HER, 'DON'T
  • 00:10:46.070 --> 00:10:48.210
  • BE AFRAID, MARY; FOR YOU HAVE
  • 00:10:48.210 --> 00:10:49.180
  • FOUND FAVOR WITH GOD.
  • 00:10:49.180 --> 00:10:50.260
  • AND, BEHOLD, YOU WILL CONCEIVE
  • 00:10:50.260 --> 00:10:52.190
  • IN YOUR WOMB AND BEAR A SON,
  • 00:10:52.190 --> 00:10:54.050
  • AND YOU SHALL NAME HIM JESUS.
  • 00:10:54.200 --> 00:10:57.200
  • HE WILL BE GREAT AND HE'LL BE

  • CALLED THE SON OF THE MOST
  • 00:10:58.150 --> 00:10:59.040
  • HIGH; AND THE LORD GOD WILL

  • GIVE HIM..."
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:01.120
  • I LOVE THIS PART
  • 00:11:01.120 --> 00:11:02.020

  • HIS KINGDOM WILL HAVE NO END.'"
  • 00:11:08.080 --> 00:11:09.280
  • BEFORE WE GO ON THERE, DID YOU
  • 00:11:10.050 --> 00:11:13.050
  • NOTICE THAT JESUS DOES NOT SIT
  • 00:11:13.050 --> 00:11:15.210
  • ON THE THRONE OF JESUS?
  • 00:11:15.210 --> 00:11:17.050
  • HE SITS ON THE THRONE OF WHAT?
  • 00:11:17.050 --> 00:11:18.180
  • DAVID.
  • 00:11:19.010 --> 00:11:22.010
  • ISN'T THAT INTERESTING THAT--
  • 00:11:22.010 --> 00:11:22.270
  • HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:11:22.270 --> 00:11:24.020
  • YOU'RE RAISED UP AND SEATED
  • 00:11:24.020 --> 00:11:25.080
  • IN HEAVENLY PLACES?
  • 00:11:25.080 --> 00:11:25.290
  • EPHESIANS CHAPTER 1 SAYS THAT
  • 00:11:25.290 --> 00:11:28.130
  • YOU ARE CURRENTLY RAISED UP AN
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:30.140
  • SEATED IN HEAVENLY PLACES --
  • 00:11:30.140 --> 00:11:31.150
  • WHERE?
  • 00:11:31.150 --> 00:11:32.200
  • WITH CHRIST.
  • 00:11:32.200 --> 00:11:35.080
  • WHERE IS CHRIST SEATED?
  • 00:11:35.080 --> 00:11:36.110
  • HE'S ACTUALLY SEATED ON THE
  • 00:11:36.110 --> 00:11:37.170
  • WHAT I'M GETTING AT IS THAT
  • 00:11:40.070 --> 00:11:41.050
  • WHEN JESUS WAS BORN -- AND, OF
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:42.090
  • COURSE, DIED AND THEN ROSE FROM
  • 00:11:42.090 --> 00:11:43.220
  • THE DEAD, I'M TALKING ABOUT

  • THAT GOD WASN'T JUST, UH-- HE
  • 00:11:45.030 --> 00:11:46.170
  • WASN'T JUST FORGIVING SIN.
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:49.040
  • HE WAS CREATING PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:11:49.040 --> 00:11:49.250
  • HE WAS THE SALT OF THE EARTH
  • 00:11:53.220 --> 00:11:54.120
  • AND THEN YOU BECAME THE SALT OF
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.040
  • THE EARTH.
  • 00:11:55.040 --> 00:11:56.160
  • HE HEALED THE SICK AND THEN HE
  • 00:11:56.160 --> 00:11:57.100
  • SAID, "YOU HEAL THE SICK."
  • 00:11:57.100 --> 00:11:58.180

  • WITH AN ANGEL.
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:17.090
  • AND THE ANGEL'S, LIKE, EXCITED.
  • 00:13:17.090 --> 00:13:18.010
  • AND THE ANGEL'S LIKE, "GOD HAS
  • 00:13:18.010 --> 00:13:19.050
  • FAVORED YOU!"
  • 00:13:19.050 --> 00:13:21.200
  • AND SHE'S LIKE, "OKAY..."
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:24.090
  • "AND YOU'RE A VIRGIN AND YOU'RE
  • 00:13:24.090 --> 00:13:25.200
  • GONNA HAVE A CHILD!
  • 00:13:25.200 --> 00:13:27.140
  • AND, IT'S GONNA BE THE SAVIOR
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:28.170
  • AND SHE ISN'T LIKE: "AWESOME!
  • 00:13:31.070 --> 00:13:32.040
  • LET'S DO THIS!"
  • 00:13:32.040 --> 00:13:34.030
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:34.030 --> 00:13:35.020
  • SHE'S LIKE: "HOW COULD THIS BE?
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:35.260
  • AND WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?"
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:37.140
  • IT SAYS SHE WAS PERPLEXED.
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:39.030
  • YOU COULD IMAGINE, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:13:39.030 --> 00:13:40.010
  • "I'M GONNA BE THE ONLY PERSON
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:41.110
  • EVER TO HAVE A CHILD WITHOUT A
  • 00:13:41.110 --> 00:13:44.030
  • SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:13:44.030 --> 00:13:46.160
  • [LAUGHTER]

  • WHO IS GOING TO BELIEVE THIS?
  • 00:13:47.060 --> 00:13:47.270
  • NOT JOSEPH, THAT'S FOR SURE."
  • 00:13:47.270 --> 00:13:49.160
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:50.080 --> 00:13:53.080
  • AND SO, SHE-- I IMAGINE, AFTER
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:57.100
  • THE WHOLE THING'S OVER, SHE'S
  • 00:13:57.100 --> 00:13:58.260
  • LIKE, "AND HOW AM I GONNA TELL
  • 00:13:58.260 --> 00:13:59.210
  • MY PARENTS ABOUT THIS?"
  • 00:13:59.210 --> 00:14:00.140
  • YOU KNOW?
  • 00:14:00.140 --> 00:14:02.200
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:02.200 --> 00:14:03.080
  • AND, IN THESE DAYS, OBVIOUSLY,
  • 00:14:03.080 --> 00:14:03.290
  • THIS IS NOT THE 21ST CENTURY.
  • 00:14:03.290 --> 00:14:05.200
  • THEY STONE-- THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:14:05.200 --> 00:14:07.010
  • STONE WOMEN FOR COMMITTING
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:08.050
  • SO, THIS WAS NOT, LIKE,
  • 00:14:12.050 --> 00:14:12.230
  • NECESSARILY, THE EASIEST NEWS
  • 00:14:12.230 --> 00:14:13.190
  • TO BREAK TO YOUR BOYFRIEND.
  • 00:14:13.190 --> 00:14:16.040
  • SO: "MARY SAID TO THE ANGEL,
  • 00:14:16.040 --> 00:14:17.150
  • 'HOW CAN THIS BE, SINCE I
  • 00:14:17.150 --> 00:14:18.040
  • AM A VIRGIN?'
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:20.070
  • THE ANGEL ANSWERED AND SAID TO
  • 00:14:20.070 --> 00:14:21.120
  • HER, 'THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL COME
  • 00:14:21.120 --> 00:14:22.110
  • UPON YOU, AND THE POWER OF THE
  • 00:14:22.110 --> 00:14:25.040
  • MOST HIGH WILL OVERSHADOW YOU;
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:27.040
  • AND FOR THAT REASON THE HOLY
  • 00:14:27.040 --> 00:14:28.010
  • CHILD SHALL BE CALLED THE
  • 00:14:28.010 --> 00:14:29.110
  • SON OF GOD...'"
  • 00:14:29.110 --> 00:14:30.100
  • OH, THAT CLEARS IT UP...
  • 00:14:30.100 --> 00:14:32.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:32.040 --> 00:14:33.150
  • I MEAN, IF I'M MARY, I'M LIKE:
  • 00:14:33.150 --> 00:14:34.230
  • "AAAAAND...WHAT-- HOW IS THIS
  • 00:14:34.230 --> 00:14:36.060
  • GONNA HAPPEN?"
  • 00:14:36.060 --> 00:14:38.040
  • BUT, IN HEBREWS 2:14, THERE'S
  • 00:14:38.040 --> 00:14:40.240
  • ACTUALLY AN ANSWER.
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:44.100
  • IT SAYS: "THEREFORE, SINCE THE
  • 00:14:44.100 --> 00:14:45.010
  • CHILDREN SHARE IN FLESH AND
  • 00:14:45.010 --> 00:14:46.060
  • BLOOD, HE HIMSELF, LIKEWISE,
  • 00:14:46.060 --> 00:14:47.190
  • ALSO PARTOOK OR TOOK OF THE
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:49.290
  • SAME, THAT THROUGH DEATH
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:51.160
  • HE MIGHT RENDER POWERLESS HIM
  • 00:14:51.160 --> 00:14:53.030
  • WHO HAD THE POWER OF DEATH,
  • 00:14:53.030 --> 00:14:54.260
  • THAT IS, THE DEVIL,
  • 00:14:54.260 --> 00:14:56.180
  • AND MIGHT FREE THOSE WHO
  • 00:14:56.180 --> 00:14:58.140
  • THROUGH FEAR OF DEATH WERE
  • 00:14:58.140 --> 00:14:59.180
  • SUBJECT TO SLAVERY ALL
  • 00:14:59.180 --> 00:15:01.040
  • THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:15:01.040 --> 00:15:01.290
  • FOR ASSUREDLY, HE DOES NOT GIVE
  • 00:15:01.290 --> 00:15:03.000
  • HELP TO ANGELS, BUT HE GIVES
  • 00:15:03.120 --> 00:15:06.120
  • HELP TO THE DESCENDANT
  • 00:15:06.120 --> 00:15:08.040
  • OF ABRAHAM.
  • 00:15:08.040 --> 00:15:10.080
  • THEREFORE, HE HAD TO BE MADE
  • 00:15:10.080 --> 00:15:11.110
  • LIKE HIS BRETHREN IN ALL
  • 00:15:11.110 --> 00:15:13.180
  • THINGS, SO THAT HE MIGHT BECOME
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:14.260
  • A MERCIFUL AND FAITHFUL HIGH
  • 00:15:14.260 --> 00:15:16.150
  • PRIEST IN THINGS PERTAINING TO
  • 00:15:16.150 --> 00:15:18.040
  • GOD, TO MAKE PROPITIATION FOR
  • 00:15:18.040 --> 00:15:20.120
  • THE SINS OF THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:20.120 --> 00:15:22.280
  • FOR SINCE HE HIMSELF WAS
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:24.070
  • TEMPTED IN THAT WHICH HE HAS
  • 00:15:24.070 --> 00:15:25.200
  • SUFFERED, HE IS ABLE TO COME TO
  • 00:15:25.200 --> 00:15:26.190
  • THE AID OF THOSE WHO ARE
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:28.230
  • TEMPTED."
  • 00:15:28.230 --> 00:15:30.110
  • WHAT'S THE POINT?
  • 00:15:30.110 --> 00:15:32.220
  • HOW MANY KNOW THAT JESUS WAS
  • 00:15:32.220 --> 00:15:34.160
  • FULLY MAN AND HE WAS FULLY GOD?
  • 00:15:35.160 --> 00:15:38.160
  • HE TOOK ON ALL THE LIMITATIONS
  • 00:15:38.160 --> 00:15:41.070
  • YOU HAVE AND ALL THE
  • 00:15:41.070 --> 00:15:42.180
  • LIMITATIONS I HAVE.
  • 00:15:42.180 --> 00:15:44.190
  • HEBREWS SAID HE BECAME LIKE US
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:45.150
  • SO THAT HE COULD FREE US FROM
  • 00:15:45.150 --> 00:15:47.180
  • THOSE THINGS THAT HOLD US.
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:49.120
  • AND SO, WHEN JESUS HEALED THE
  • 00:15:49.120 --> 00:15:51.070
  • SICK -- AND BILL'S TAUGHT ON
  • 00:15:51.070 --> 00:15:52.220
  • THIS MANY TIMES -- HE DIDN'T
  • 00:15:52.220 --> 00:15:53.230
  • HEAL THE SICK AS GOD.
  • 00:15:54.210 --> 00:15:57.210
  • HE HEALED THE SICK AS A PERSON
  • 00:15:57.210 --> 00:15:59.230
  • RIGHTLY RELATED TO GOD.
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:03.040
  • AND THEN, HE SAID:
  • 00:16:03.040 --> 00:16:03.190
  • "AND GREATER WORKS SHALL
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:05.000
  • YOU DO WHEN I GO TO BE
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:05.260
  • WITH THE FATHER."
  • 00:16:05.260 --> 00:16:06.110
  • AND THE POINT IS HE WAS
  • 00:16:06.110 --> 00:16:07.030
  • DEMONSTRATING WHAT A PERSON --
  • 00:16:07.030 --> 00:16:08.090
  • A MAN OR WOMAN -- IN RIGHT
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:09.110
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, IF YOU
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:10.280
  • WILL, BORN OF THE SPERM
  • 00:16:10.280 --> 00:16:12.160
  • OF GOD--
  • 00:16:12.160 --> 00:16:14.150
  • HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW THAT YOU
  • 00:16:14.150 --> 00:16:15.230
  • WERE BORN OF THE SEED -- IT'S
  • 00:16:15.230 --> 00:16:16.280
  • THE SAME WORD "SPERM," THE WORD
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:18.170
  • "SPERMA" IN THE GREEK -- YOU
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:19.290
  • WERE BORN OF THE SPERMA OF GOD
  • 00:16:19.290 --> 00:16:22.200
  • WHEN YOU WERE BORN AGAIN?
  • 00:16:22.200 --> 00:16:25.120
  • AND WHAT HAPPENED IS IS THAT
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:26.050
  • NOW YOU HAVE THE NATURE...
  • 00:16:26.050 --> 00:16:28.080
  • HE WAS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD
  • 00:16:28.080 --> 00:16:29.100
  • YOU BECAME THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF
  • 00:16:31.080 --> 00:16:32.000
  • GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:16:32.000 --> 00:16:32.200
  • HE WAS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:16:32.200 --> 00:16:34.030
  • AND THEN, HE SAID, "YOU'RE THE
  • 00:16:34.030 --> 00:16:35.140
  • LIGHT OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:16:35.140 --> 00:16:36.260
  • HE WAS THE SALT OF THE EARTH
  • 00:16:36.260 --> 00:16:37.290
  • AND THEN YOU BECAME THE SALT OF
  • 00:16:37.290 --> 00:16:39.030
  • THE EARTH.
  • 00:16:39.030 --> 00:16:40.190
  • HE HEALED THE SICK AND THEN HE
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:41.220
  • SAID, "YOU HEAL THE SICK."
  • 00:16:41.220 --> 00:16:42.180
  • YOU SAY, "I CAN'T HEAL THE
  • 00:16:42.180 --> 00:16:43.070
  • SICK."
  • 00:16:43.070 --> 00:16:43.230
  • LUKE 2 -- LET'S GO THERE.
  • 00:16:47.000 --> 00:16:47.200
  • VERSE 1.
  • 00:16:47.200 --> 00:16:49.060
  • "NOW, IN THOSE DAYS A DECREE
  • 00:16:49.060 --> 00:16:51.060
  • WENT OUT FROM CAESAR AUGUSTUS,
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:54.120
  • THAT A CENSUS BE TAKEN OF ALL
  • 00:16:54.120 --> 00:16:55.120
  • THE INHABITED EARTH.
  • 00:16:55.120 --> 00:16:57.220
  • THIS WAS THE FIRST CENSUS TAKEN
  • 00:16:57.220 --> 00:16:59.040
  • WHILE QUIRINIUS WAS
  • 00:16:59.040 --> 00:17:02.030
  • GOVERNOR OF SYRIA.
  • 00:17:02.030 --> 00:17:03.220
  • AND EVERYONE WAS ON HIS WAY TO
  • 00:17:03.220 --> 00:17:04.260
  • REGISTER FOR THE CENSUS,
  • 00:17:04.260 --> 00:17:06.170
  • EACH TO HIS OWN CITY.
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:08.080
  • JOSEPH ALSO WENT UP FROM
  • 00:17:08.080 --> 00:17:09.240
  • GALILEE, FROM THE CITY OF
  • 00:17:09.240 --> 00:17:11.180
  • NAZARETH, TO JUDEA, TO THE CITY
  • 00:17:11.180 --> 00:17:12.100
  • OF DAVID WHICH IS CALLED
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:14.090
  • BETHLEHEM, BECAUSE HE WAS OF
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:15.200
  • THE HOUSE AND FAMILY OF DAVID,
  • 00:17:15.200 --> 00:17:17.280
  • IN ORDER TO REGISTER ALONG WITH
  • 00:17:17.280 --> 00:17:19.210
  • MARY, WHO WAS ENGAGED TO HIM,
  • 00:17:19.210 --> 00:17:22.060
  • AND WAS WITH CHILD.
  • 00:17:22.060 --> 00:17:24.040
  • WHILE THEY WERE THERE, THE DAYS
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:26.030
  • WERE COMPLETED FOR HER TO
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:27.150
  • GIVE BIRTH.
  • 00:17:27.150 --> 00:17:28.020
  • AND SHE GAVE BIRTH TO HER
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:29.220
  • FIRSTBORN SON; AND SHE WRAPPED
  • 00:17:29.220 --> 00:17:31.150
  • HIM IN CLOTHS, AND LAID HIM IN
  • 00:17:31.150 --> 00:17:32.220
  • A MANGER, BECAUSE THERE WAS NO
  • 00:17:32.220 --> 00:17:34.250
  • ROOM FOR THEM IN THE INN."
  • 00:17:37.060 --> 00:17:40.060
  • NOW, WHAT'S INTERESTING TO ME
  • 00:17:40.060 --> 00:17:40.270
  • IS THAT JESUS-- THE BOOK OF
  • 00:17:40.270 --> 00:17:41.170
  • REVELATION SAYS THAT HE WAS THE
  • 00:17:41.170 --> 00:17:42.090
  • LAMB SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:43.000
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:43.240
  • DID YOU GET THAT?
  • 00:17:43.240 --> 00:17:45.290
  • LIKE, GOD WASN'T LIKE-- ADAM
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:47.070
  • AND EVE SINNED AND THEN GOD'S
  • 00:17:47.070 --> 00:17:48.240
  • LIKE: OH, GOSH -- YOU GOTTA
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.000
  • COME UP WITH ANOTHER PLAN.
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:50.230
  • OKAY, LET'S HUDDLE, THE THREE
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:51.270
  • OF US, GET TOGETHER AND TALK
  • 00:17:51.270 --> 00:17:53.160
  • ABOUT HOW WE'RE GONNA DO THIS.
  • 00:17:53.160 --> 00:17:54.070
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:56.040
  • IT WAS ACTUALLY-- THE LORD
  • 00:17:56.040 --> 00:17:56.230
  • ACTUALLY [HAD] SLAIN THE LAMB
  • 00:17:56.230 --> 00:17:58.090
  • HOW MANY KNOW GOD HAS AN ANSWER
  • 00:18:01.220 --> 00:18:02.140
  • BEFORE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM?
  • 00:18:02.140 --> 00:18:03.200
  • YOU MIGHT THINK THAT PROBLEM--
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:06.050
  • YOU MIGHT-- THAT PROBLEM MAY
  • 00:18:06.050 --> 00:18:08.280
  • HAVE SNUCK UP ON YOU, BUT HOW
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:09.220
  • MUCH-- HOW MANY KNOW IT DIDN'T
  • 00:18:09.220 --> 00:18:10.160
  • SNEAK UP ON GOD?
  • 00:18:10.160 --> 00:18:13.110
  • GOD HAD A SOLUTION TO EVERY
  • 00:18:13.110 --> 00:18:14.010
  • PROBLEM BEFORE YOU HAD THE
  • 00:18:14.010 --> 00:18:14.200
  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:18:14.200 --> 00:18:15.220
  • AND SO, HE WAS SLAIN FROM THE
  • 00:18:15.220 --> 00:18:17.030
  • FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:18.100
  • ISN'T IT INTERESTING THAT
  • 00:18:18.100 --> 00:18:19.030
  • JESUS--
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:19.260
  • SO, THE PLAN OF REDEMPTION
  • 00:18:19.260 --> 00:18:21.170
  • THROUGH JESUS WAS ACTUALLY--
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:26.210
  • BEFORE GOD CREATED
  • 00:18:26.210 --> 00:18:27.060
  • THE WORLD,
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:27.280
  • HE ALREADY HAD CREATED A PLAN.
  • 00:18:27.280 --> 00:18:28.260
  • BUT FOR SOME REASON, GOD DIDN'T
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:30.240
  • GET A ROOM.
  • 00:18:30.240 --> 00:18:33.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:18:33.130 --> 00:18:36.000
  • NOW, I KNOW THERE'S PROBABLY
  • 00:18:36.000 --> 00:18:36.200
  • LOTS OF SPIRITUAL REASONS WHY
  • 00:18:36.200 --> 00:18:37.250
  • JESUS WAS BORN IN A MANGER, BUT
  • 00:18:37.250 --> 00:18:39.110
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:18:39.110 --> 00:18:40.280
  • NOBODY HAD A ROOM FOR HIM.
  • 00:18:40.280 --> 00:18:43.010
  • AND I WAS THINKING ABOUT THIS,
  • 00:18:43.010 --> 00:18:45.010
  • LIKE: GOD, FROM THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:18:45.010 --> 00:18:46.210
  • OF THE WORLD, KNEW WHEN JESUS
  • 00:18:46.210 --> 00:18:47.180
  • WAS GONNA BE BORN, BUT FORGOT
  • 00:18:47.180 --> 00:18:48.180
  • TO REGISTER AT THE HOTEL.
  • 00:18:48.180 --> 00:18:50.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:18:50.000 --> 00:18:52.090
  • NO, I'M SURE HE DIDN'T FORGET.
  • 00:18:52.090 --> 00:18:53.170
  • JUST BEIN' A LITTLE FUNNY.
  • 00:18:53.170 --> 00:18:54.060
  • BUT MY POINT IS IS THAT
  • 00:18:54.060 --> 00:18:55.170
  • SOMETIMES WHEN THINGS-- WHEN
  • 00:18:55.170 --> 00:18:56.250
  • GOD CALLS YOU TO SOMETHING, YOU
  • 00:18:56.250 --> 00:18:58.200
  • THINK: THIS IS ALL GONNA WORK
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:18:59.200
  • OUT PERFECTLY.
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:00.150
  • AND I'M LIKE...SOMETIMES, EVEN
  • 00:19:00.150 --> 00:19:01.260
  • WHEN IT'S GOD, IT AIN'T
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:06.260
  • PERFECT.
  • 00:19:06.260 --> 00:19:09.030
  • IT'S LIKE: YOUR BABY HAD TO BE
  • 00:19:09.030 --> 00:19:11.170
  • BORN IN A BARN.
  • 00:19:11.170 --> 00:19:14.020
  • WHY?
  • 00:19:14.020 --> 00:19:15.240
  • WELL, HE'S THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:19:15.240 --> 00:19:17.040
  • IT'S FUNNY.
  • 00:19:17.150 --> 00:19:20.150
  • WE'RE GONNA SEE IN JUST A
  • 00:19:20.150 --> 00:19:21.040
  • MINUTE THAT GOD TOLD SHEPHERDS,
  • 00:19:21.040 --> 00:19:21.260
  • GOD TOLD MAGI,
  • 00:19:21.280 --> 00:19:24.280
  • THERE WAS OPEN HEAVEN
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:28.150
  • ENCOUNTERS, THERE WAS A

  • GOD TOLD ALL THOSE PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:32.100
  • BUT HE DIDN'T TELL THE HOTEL.
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:33.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:33.280 --> 00:19:36.260
  • HAVE YOU EVER BEEN CALLED BY
  • 00:19:36.260 --> 00:19:37.210
  • GOD TO GO SOMEWHERE TO DO
  • 00:19:37.210 --> 00:19:40.100
  • SOMETHING AND YOUR CAR BROKE

  • SO SHE'S, LIKE: "THANK YOU."
  • 00:24:05.150 --> 00:24:08.150
  • SHE'S PROBABLY A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:24:08.150 --> 00:24:09.080

  • REALLY HAPPENED.
  • 00:24:10.080 --> 00:24:10.280
