  • TO THE COUPLE'S HOME AND TELL
  • 00:06:01.417 --> 00:06:03.619

  • WITHOUT MAKING SUREHE HAD HIS HELMET ON.
  • 00:06:46.963 --> 00:06:49.699
  • THAT ROMAN HELMET WASA PIECE OF MOLDED METAL
  • 00:06:49.732 --> 00:06:51.767
  • WITH A FACE GUARD ONIT, AND THE PURPOSE
  • 00:06:51.801 --> 00:06:54.337
  • OF THE HELMET WAS OBVIOUS,IT WOULD PROTECT THE HEAD
  • 00:06:54.370 --> 00:06:57.073
  • FROM MORTAL WOUNDSINFLICTED BY THE ENEMY.
  • 00:06:57.106 --> 00:07:00.109
  • IN THE SAME WAY PAUL SAYS,"BEFORE WE GO INTO BATTLE,
  • 00:07:00.142 --> 00:07:03.012

  • WHAT IS THAT HELMET?
  • 00:07:06.315 --> 00:07:07.483

  • 00:07:07.517 --> 00:07:10.920

  • 00:07:10.953 --> 00:07:13.756

  • 00:07:13.789 --> 00:07:15.992

  • 00:07:19.562 --> 00:07:23.666

  • THAT ASSURANCE OFYOUR SALVATION.
  • 00:07:28.571 --> 00:07:31.607
  • NOW WHAT DO WE MEAN THEASSURANCE OF YOUR SALVATION?
  • 00:07:31.641 --> 00:07:35.244
  • THAT WORD SALVATIONIS USED IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:07:35.278 --> 00:07:38.047
  • IN TWO VERY DISTINCT WAYS, ANDIT'S CRITICAL YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:07:38.080 --> 00:07:42.051
  • WHAT PAUL IS TALKING ABOUT HERE.
  • 00:07:42.084 --> 00:07:44.053
  • WHEN HE SAYS BE ASSUREDOF YOUR SALVATION,
  • 00:07:44.086 --> 00:07:47.390
  • FIRST OF ALL HE'S TALKINGABOUT YOUR SALVATION
  • 00:07:47.423 --> 00:07:50.393
  • FROM THE PENALTY OF SIN.
  • 00:07:50.426 --> 00:07:52.028
  • WRITE THAT DOWN.
  • 00:07:52.061 --> 00:07:53.296
  • YOUR SALVATION FROMTHE PENALTY OF SIN.
  • 00:07:53.329 --> 00:07:56.265
  • JOHN 10:27 AND 28, JESUSSAID, "MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE,

  • I KNOW THEM, AND THEYFOLLOW AFTER ME."
  • 00:08:02.371 --> 00:08:04.407

  • 00:08:12.882 --> 00:08:16.352
  • WHOM THE FATHER HAS GIVEN ME."
  • 00:08:16.385 --> 00:08:18.888
  • WILL YOU NOTICETHOSE WORDS, HE SAYS,
  • 00:08:18.921 --> 00:08:20.456
  • "I GRANT ETERNAL LIFE."
  • 00:08:20.489 --> 00:08:23.526
  • IF YOU'RE A BELIEVER, YOU'VEBEEN GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 00:08:23.559 --> 00:08:26.228
  • NOW, IF YOURSALVATION CAN BE LOST,
  • 00:08:26.262 --> 00:08:28.230
  • IT'S NOT ETERNAL, IS IT?
  • 00:08:28.264 --> 00:08:30.333
  • NO, HE SAYS I GIVEYOU ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 00:08:30.366 --> 00:08:32.668
  • YOU SHALL WHAT? NEVER PERISH.
  • 00:08:32.702 --> 00:08:35.037
  • AND THEN HE SAYS, "NOMAN SHALL PLUCK OUT
  • 00:08:35.071 --> 00:08:37.239
  • OF MY HAND THOSE WHOM THEFATHER HAS GIVEN TO ME?"
  • 00:08:37.273 --> 00:08:40.376
  • IF YOU ARE SAVED,
  • 00:08:40.409 --> 00:08:41.644
  • YOU ARE SECURE IN THEHAND OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:08:41.677 --> 00:08:44.847
  • NO ONE, INCLUDING SATAN HIMSELF,
  • 00:08:44.880 --> 00:08:47.516
  • CAN PRY YOU LOSEFROM JESUS' HANDS.
  • 00:08:47.550 --> 00:08:50.553
  • IN ROMANS 11:29, THEAPOSTLE PAUL SAID,
  • 00:08:50.586 --> 00:08:52.788
  • "FOR THE GIFTS AND THE CALLINGOF GOD ARE IRREVOCABLE."
  • 00:08:52.822 --> 00:08:58.628
  • THEY CANNOT BE TAKEN AWAY.
  • 00:08:58.661 --> 00:09:01.731
  • SOMEBODY HAS SAID IFAFTER TRUSTING IN CHRIST,
  • 00:09:01.764 --> 00:09:04.867
  • I END UP GOING TO HELL,I WILL LOSE MY SOUL,
  • 00:09:04.900 --> 00:09:09.605
  • BUT GOD WILL LOSE HIS GOODNAME AND HIS REPUTATION,
  • 00:09:09.639 --> 00:09:13.776
  • AND HE'S NOT ABOUT TO DO THAT.
  • 00:09:13.809 --> 00:09:16.112
  • YOUR SALVATION FROM THEPENALTY OF SIN RESTS
  • 00:09:16.145 --> 00:09:18.714
  • ON THE CHARACTER, THEFAITHFULNESS OF GOD HIMSELF.
  • 00:09:18.748 --> 00:09:25.121
  • AND WHEN HE SAYS WE NEED TO PUTON THAT HELMET OF SALVATION,
  • 00:09:25.154 --> 00:09:26.489
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT BEING SECURE
  • 00:09:26.522 --> 00:09:28.224
  • ABOUT OUR POSITION IN CHRIST.
  • 00:09:28.257 --> 00:09:30.326
  • BUT I DON'T THINK
  • 00:09:30.359 --> 00:09:31.494
  • THAT'S THE PRIMARYMEANING OF THIS PASSAGE.
  • 00:09:31.527 --> 00:09:34.196
  • I DON'T THINK HE IS SO MUCHTALKING ABOUT OUR ASSURANCE
  • 00:09:34.230 --> 00:09:37.500
  • OF SALVATION FROMTHE PENALTY OF SIN,
  • 00:09:37.533 --> 00:09:39.135
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT,ESPECIALLY WHEN WE'RE
  • 00:09:39.168 --> 00:09:41.437
  • IN THE MIDST OF TEMPTATION,WE NEED THE ASSURANCE
  • 00:09:41.470 --> 00:09:44.840
  • OF OUR SALVATION FROMTHE POWER OF SIN.
  • 00:09:44.874 --> 00:09:48.944
  • THAT'S WHAT HE'S TALKINGABOUT HERE, MAINLY.
  • 00:09:48.978 --> 00:09:50.846
  • WE HAVE BEEN SAVEDFROM THE POWER OF SIN.
  • 00:09:50.880 --> 00:09:55.618
  • LISTEN TO ROMANS 8:2 FROMTHE NEW LIVING TRANSLATION,
  • 00:09:55.651 --> 00:09:59.021
  • AND BECAUSE YOU BELONG TO HIM,
  • 00:09:59.055 --> 00:10:01.791
  • THE POWER OF THE LIFE-GIVINGSPIRIT HAS FREED YOU
  • 00:10:01.824 --> 00:10:05.561
  • FROM THE POWER OF SINTHAT LEADS TO DEATH.
  • 00:10:05.594 --> 00:10:09.065
  • DO YOU SEE THAT?
  • 00:10:09.098 --> 00:10:10.266
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT HASFREED YOU FROM THE POWER
  • 00:10:10.299 --> 00:10:13.335
  • OF SIN THAT LEADS TO DEATH.
  • 00:10:13.369 --> 00:10:16.439
  • AND YET MOSTCHRISTIANS ARE UNAWARE
  • 00:10:16.472 --> 00:10:18.340
  • OF THAT POWER THEYALREADY POSSESS.
  • 00:10:18.374 --> 00:10:20.943
  • EVERY TIME I READ THIS PASSAGE,
  • 00:10:20.976 --> 00:10:22.511
  • I THINK ABOUT A FRIENDOF MINE WHO WENT
  • 00:10:22.545 --> 00:10:25.281
  • TO WORK FOR THECIRCUS FOR ONE DAY.
  • 00:10:25.314 --> 00:10:27.650
  • SOMEBODY CALLEDHIM UP ON THE PHONE
  • 00:10:27.683 --> 00:10:28.918
  • AND SAID HEY, WOULDYOU LIKE TO COME
  • 00:10:28.951 --> 00:10:30.119
  • AND WORK AT THECIRCUS FOR THE DAY?
  • 00:10:30.152 --> 00:10:31.320
  • MY FRIEND SAID YEAH,THAT WOULD BE FUN TO DO.
  • 00:10:31.353 --> 00:10:32.988
  • SO HE WENT TO THECIRCUS FOR THE DAY
  • 00:10:33.022 --> 00:10:34.290
  • AND HE SAID DURINGONE OF HIS BREAKS,
  • 00:10:34.323 --> 00:10:36.058
  • HE WENT OVER TO SEE WHERE THEYWERE KEEPING THE ELEPHANTS.
  • 00:10:36.092 --> 00:10:39.729
  • AND HE NOTICED THESEHUGE MULTI-TON CREATURES,
  • 00:10:39.762 --> 00:10:42.765
  • ELEPHANTS BEING HELD IN PLACEBY A TINY STAKE IN THE GROUND,
  • 00:10:42.798 --> 00:10:47.069
  • TIED TO A FLIMSY CHAINTHAT WAS ATTACHED
  • 00:10:47.103 --> 00:10:49.138
  • TO THE ELEPHANT'S LEG.
  • 00:10:49.171 --> 00:10:51.507
  • AND MY FRIEND SAID TOTHE ELEPHANT TRAINER,
  • 00:10:51.540 --> 00:10:53.109
  • HOW IS IT YOU CAN STAKEDOWN THESE HUGE ANIMALS
  • 00:10:53.142 --> 00:10:56.812
  • WITH SUCH A TINY STAKEAND A FLIMSY CHAIN?
  • 00:10:56.846 --> 00:10:59.715
  • I MEAN, ONE TUG AND THEYWOULD BE UP AND OFF.
  • 00:10:59.749 --> 00:11:02.351
  • WHY DON'T THEY TRY TO GET FREE?
  • 00:11:02.384 --> 00:11:04.620
  • THE ELEPHANT TRAINERSAID TO MY FRIEND,
  • 00:11:04.653 --> 00:11:06.122
  • WELL, YOU HAVE TO REMEMBERTWO THINGS ABOUT ELEPHANTS,
  • 00:11:06.155 --> 00:11:10.025
  • NUMBER ONE, THEY'RENOT VERY SMART.
  • 00:11:10.059 --> 00:11:12.628
  • BUT SECONDLY, THEYHAVE GREAT MEMORIES.
  • 00:11:12.661 --> 00:11:15.798
  • AND WHEN THESE ELEPHANTSARE LITTLE BABIES,
  • 00:11:15.831 --> 00:11:18.467
  • TWO HUNDRED POUNDS,WE STAKE THEM DOWN
  • 00:11:18.501 --> 00:11:21.737
  • WITH THAT SAME STAKEAND THAT SAME CHAIN,
  • 00:11:21.771 --> 00:11:24.106
  • TIED TO THEIR LEG, ANDTHEY'LL TRY AND TRY
  • 00:11:24.140 --> 00:11:26.275
  • TO BREAK LOOSE AND THEY CAN'T.
  • 00:11:26.308 --> 00:11:28.477
  • AND THEY EVENTUALLY GIVE UP.
  • 00:11:28.511 --> 00:11:30.179
  • AND THEN WHEN THEY GET LARGER,WE STILL USE THE SAME STAKE,
  • 00:11:30.212 --> 00:11:33.516
  • THE SAME CHAIN ON THEM,
  • 00:11:33.549 --> 00:11:35.017
  • BUT WHENEVER THEY THINKABOUT GETTING LOOSE,
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:37.686
  • THEY REMEMBER THEIR EXPERIENCEWHEN THEY WERE LITTLE,
  • 00:11:37.720 --> 00:11:40.089
  • AND SO THEY DON'T EVENTRY TO BREAK FREE.
  • 00:11:40.122 --> 00:11:44.527
  • WHAT A GREAT ANALOGYFOR THE CHRISTIAN LIFE.
  • 00:11:44.560 --> 00:11:47.530
  • NOW I DON'T GIVE TOOMANY HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS
  • 00:11:47.563 --> 00:11:49.431
  • IN MY SERVICES, BUT I'M GOING TOGIVE ONE TO YOU TODAY, OKAY?

  • ON THIS HELMET OF SALVATION.
  • 00:11:55.271 --> 00:11:57.840
  • WHEN YOU'RE IN THEHEAT OF BATTLE,
  • 00:11:57.873 --> 00:11:59.341
  • WHEN TEMPTATION IS FLYINGAT YOU THE NEXT TIME,
  • 00:11:59.375 --> 00:12:02.511
  • THIS IS A PRACTICAL WAYTO PUT ON THIS HELMET.
  • 00:12:02.545 --> 00:12:05.047
  • I WANT YOU TO REMIND YOURSELFOF THIS SCRIPTURE PASSAGE,
  • 00:12:05.080 --> 00:12:08.184
  • WRITE IT DOWN, ROMANS 6,YEAH, ROMANS 6:11-14.
  • 00:12:08.217 --> 00:12:12.755
  • IT'S THE PASSAGE THAT WEREAD JUST A FEW MOMENTS AGO.
  • 00:12:12.788 --> 00:12:15.591
  • NOW HERE'S THEHOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT,
  • 00:12:15.624 --> 00:12:17.193
  • I WANT YOU TO MEMORIZETHIS PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:12:17.226 --> 00:12:21.230
  • YOU SAY WELL I CAN'T MEMORIZE.
  • 00:12:21.263 --> 00:12:22.832
  • I'M JUST NOT ABLE TOMEMORIZE ANYTHING, PASTOR.
  • 00:12:22.865 --> 00:12:25.501
  • OKAY, WHAT IF I TOLD YOU IFYOU MEMORIZED THIS PASSAGE,
  • 00:12:25.534 --> 00:12:29.572
  • I'LL GIVE YOU A MILLION DOLLARS?
  • 00:12:29.605 --> 00:12:31.273
  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHING)
  • 00:12:31.307 --> 00:12:33.776
  • DO YOU THINK YOU CANMEMORIZE IT THEN?
  • 00:12:33.809 --> 00:12:36.846
  • SEE, MEMORIZATIONISN'T ABOUT ABILITY,
  • 00:12:36.879 --> 00:12:39.815
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT ABILITY,IT'S ABOUT MOTIVATION.
  • 00:12:39.849 --> 00:12:43.319
  • THIS PASSAGE, IFYOU'LL PUT IT ON,
  • 00:12:43.352 --> 00:12:45.921
  • IF YOU'LL MEMORIZEIT AND REMEMBER IT,
  • 00:12:45.955 --> 00:12:48.591
  • WHEN YOU'RE IN THEHEAT OF TEMPTATION,
  • 00:12:48.624 --> 00:12:51.060
  • IT WILL SAVE YOU FROM SIN.
  • 00:12:51.093 --> 00:12:53.128
  • THAT CAN BE A LOT MORE VALUABLE
  • 00:12:53.162 --> 00:12:54.463
  • THAN A MILLION DOLLARS TO YOU.
  • 00:12:54.496 --> 00:12:57.099
  • HERE'S THE PASSAGE,ROMANS 6:11-14,
  • 00:12:57.132 --> 00:13:00.169
  • PAUL SAYS, "EVEN SO, CONSIDERYOURSELVES AS DEAD TO SIN,
  • 00:13:00.202 --> 00:13:04.640
  • BUT ALIVE TO GODIN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:13:04.673 --> 00:13:07.610
  • THEREFORE DO NOT LET SIN REIGN
  • 00:13:07.643 --> 00:13:09.778
  • OVER YOUR MORTAL BODIES THATYOU SHOULD OBEY ITS LUST.
  • 00:13:09.812 --> 00:13:13.082
  • AND DO NOT KEEP ONPRESENTING THE MEMBERS
  • 00:13:13.115 --> 00:13:15.584
  • OF YOUR BODIES TO SIN ASINSTRUMENTS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:13:15.618 --> 00:13:19.255
  • BUT PRESENT YOURSELVES TO GOD
  • 00:13:19.288 --> 00:13:21.423
  • AS THOSE WHO AREALIVE FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:13:21.457 --> 00:13:23.225
  • AND PRESENT THEMEMBERS OF YOUR BODIES
  • 00:13:23.259 --> 00:13:25.461
  • AS INSTRUMENTS OFRIGHTEOUSNESS TO GOD.
  • 00:13:25.494 --> 00:13:29.698
  • SO THEN, DO NOT LETSIN BE MASTER OVER YOU,
  • 00:13:29.732 --> 00:13:34.570
  • FOR YOU ARE UNDER GRACE ANDNO LONGER UNDER THE LAW."
  • 00:13:34.603 --> 00:13:39.241
  • NOW IF YOU WILL MEMORIZE THAT,
  • 00:13:39.275 --> 00:13:41.310
  • THE NEXT TIME YOU'RE INTHE MIDST OF TEMPTATION,
  • 00:13:41.343 --> 00:13:43.712
  • REMIND YOURSELFI AM DEAD TO SIN,
  • 00:13:43.746 --> 00:13:47.283
  • BUT I'M ALIVE TO GOD.
  • 00:13:47.316 --> 00:13:49.018
  • SIN HAS NO MORE POWEROVER MY LIFE ANY LONGER.
  • 00:13:49.051 --> 00:13:52.521
  • THAT IS A PRACTICAL WAY TO PUTON THE HELMET OF SALVATION.
  • 00:13:52.554 --> 00:13:57.293
  • THE FINAL PIECE OF ARMORTHAT PAUL TALKS ABOUT,
  • 00:13:57.326 --> 00:14:01.230
  • IS FOUND IN EPHESIANS6:17 AS WELL,
  • 00:14:01.263 --> 00:14:04.733
  • AND TAKE UP THESWORD OF THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:14:04.767 --> 00:14:08.270
  • WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:14:08.304 --> 00:14:10.773
  • NOW, WHEN PAUL TALKSABOUT TAKING UP
  • 00:14:10.806 --> 00:14:13.242
  • THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, THATWORD SWORD DOES NOT REFER
  • 00:14:13.275 --> 00:14:19.381
  • TO THAT BIG ROMANBROADSWORD I MENTIONED
  • 00:14:19.415 --> 00:14:21.850
  • IN A MOMENT, YOU KNOW,THE SOLDIER WOULD BE RIDING
  • 00:14:21.884 --> 00:14:23.786
  • ON THE HORSE AND HE'D TAKEOUT HIS BIG BROADSWORD.
  • 00:14:23.819 --> 00:14:26.889
  • HE'D JUST FLAIL IT AROUNDHOPING TO HIT SOMEBODY
  • 00:14:26.922 --> 00:14:29.358
  • OR SOMETHING, ANDEVENTUALLY HE WOULD.
  • 00:14:29.391 --> 00:14:31.794
  • THAT'S NOT THE WORD HERE.
  • 00:14:31.827 --> 00:14:33.329
  • THE WORD HERESWORD IS THE WORD
  • 00:14:33.362 --> 00:14:36.065
  • MACHIRA IN GREEK, IT LITERALLYMEANS A DAGGER.
  • 00:14:36.098 --> 00:14:40.002
  • THE ROMAN MACHIRA WAS SIX INCHES
  • 00:14:40.035 --> 00:14:42.171
  • TO 18 INCHES LONG.
  • 00:14:42.204 --> 00:14:44.340
  • AND IT WOULD ONLY BEUSEFUL TO A SOLDIER
  • 00:14:44.373 --> 00:14:46.308
  • WHEN HE WAS IN HAND TOHAND COMBAT WITH THE ENEMY.
  • 00:14:46.342 --> 00:14:50.612
  • WHEN HE WAS IN HANDTO HAND COMBAT,
  • 00:14:50.646 --> 00:14:52.081
  • HE WOULD PULL OUT THATDAGGER, AND THE KEY IS,
  • 00:14:52.114 --> 00:14:54.984
  • HE HAD TO KNOW PRECISELY WHERETO STRIKE WITH THAT DAGGER
  • 00:14:55.017 --> 00:14:58.620
  • IN ORDER TO RENDER HISOPPONENT INOPERABLE.
  • 00:14:58.654 --> 00:15:03.025
  • HE HAD TO KNOW PRECISELYHOW TO USE THAT DAGGER.
  • 00:15:03.058 --> 00:15:05.394
  • IT TOOK GREAT SKILL.
  • 00:15:05.427 --> 00:15:06.895
  • IT WASN'T LIKE THE BROADSWORDYOU COULD JUST FLAIL AROUND,
  • 00:15:06.929 --> 00:15:08.497
  • YOU HAD TO KNOW PRECISELY HOW
  • 00:15:08.530 --> 00:15:09.932
  • TO USE THIS MACHIRA.
  • 00:15:09.965 --> 00:15:12.234
  • NOW WHAT IS THE DAGGER THATPAUL WAS TALKING ABOUT HERE?
  • 00:15:12.267 --> 00:15:16.372
  • WE DON'T HAVE TOGET A COMMENTARY OUT
  • 00:15:16.405 --> 00:15:18.040
  • TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:15:18.073 --> 00:15:19.541
  • HE SAID TAKE UP THE SWORD OFTHE SPIRIT, WHICH IS WHAT?
  • 00:15:19.575 --> 00:15:23.078
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:15:23.112 --> 00:15:25.748
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUTTHE POWER OF SCRIPTURE
  • 00:15:25.781 --> 00:15:28.784
  • WHEN WE'RE IN HAND TOHAND COMBAT WITH SATAN.
  • 00:15:28.817 --> 00:15:32.321
  • WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES THEWORD OF GOD SO POWERFUL?
  • 00:15:32.354 --> 00:15:34.790
  • REMEMBER THE WORDSOF HEBREWS 4:12,
  • 00:15:34.823 --> 00:15:37.059
  • FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS WHAT?
  • 00:15:37.092 --> 00:15:38.861
  • IT IS LIVING, IT ISACTIVE, IT IS SHARPER
  • 00:15:38.894 --> 00:15:42.564
  • THAN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD
  • 00:15:42.598 --> 00:15:43.832
  • AND IS ABLE TO PIERCEAS FAR AS THE DIVISION
  • 00:15:43.866 --> 00:15:45.834
  • OF THE SOUL AND THE SPIRIT,THE JOINTS AND THE MARROW,
  • 00:15:45.868 --> 00:15:48.637
  • AND IT IS ABLE TODISCERN THE THOUGHTS
  • 00:15:48.670 --> 00:15:52.641
  • AND THE INTENTIONS OF THE HEART.
  • 00:15:52.674 --> 00:15:56.045
  • NOW THAT LASTPHRASE CAPTURES WHY
  • 00:15:56.078 --> 00:15:58.714
  • THE WORD OF GOD IS SO POWERFUL.
  • 00:15:58.747 --> 00:16:00.716
  • THE WORD OF GOD IS POWERFULIN SPIRITUAL WARFARE,
  • 00:16:00.749 --> 00:16:03.852
  • NOW GET THIS, NOTBECAUSE OF WHAT IT DOES
  • 00:16:03.886 --> 00:16:06.722
  • TO THE ENEMY, BUT BECAUSEOF WHAT IT DOES FOR US.
  • 00:16:06.755 --> 00:16:12.261
  • REMEMBER, AGAIN, THEMIND IS COMMAND CENTRAL,
  • 00:16:12.294 --> 00:16:14.797
  • AS A MAN THINKS IN HISHEART OR MIND, SO IS HE.
  • 00:16:14.830 --> 00:16:18.000
  • WHEN SATAN WANTS TO TEMPT YOU,
  • 00:16:18.033 --> 00:16:19.334
  • IT WILL ALWAYS BETHROUGH YOUR MIND,
  • 00:16:19.368 --> 00:16:21.570
  • HE'LL ALWAYS PUT AN UNGODLYTHOUGHT INTO YOUR MIND.
  • 00:16:21.603 --> 00:16:25.441
  • AND THE WORD OF GODIS LIKE THAT DAGGER,
  • 00:16:25.474 --> 00:16:28.811
  • THAT SWORD THAT CANCUT THROUGH THE FOG
  • 00:16:28.844 --> 00:16:31.180
  • OF SATAN'S DECEPTIONS,
  • 00:16:31.213 --> 00:16:32.614
  • WHEN THOSE DECEPTIONSCOME INTO OUR MIND.
  • 00:16:32.648 --> 00:16:35.050
  • THE WORD OF GODIS ALIVE, ACTIVE,
  • 00:16:35.084 --> 00:16:36.985
  • SHARPER THAN ANYTWO-EDGED SWORD,
  • 00:16:37.019 --> 00:16:38.420
  • BECAUSE IT IS ABLE TOJUDGE THE INTENTIONS
  • 00:16:38.454 --> 00:16:42.257
  • AND THE THOUGHTSOF OUR OWN HEARTS.
  • 00:16:42.291 --> 00:16:45.260
  • THAT'S WHAT MAKES THEWORD OF GOD SO POWERFUL
  • 00:16:45.294 --> 00:16:48.230
  • IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
  • 00:16:48.263 --> 00:16:49.698
  • YOU KNOW, A GREAT ILLUSTRATIONOF USING THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:16:49.731 --> 00:16:51.600
  • SKILLFULLY, COMES FROMTHE TEMPTATION OF JESUS.
  • 00:16:51.633 --> 00:16:54.103
  • REMEMBER WHEN JESUSWAS IN THE WILDERNESS?
  • 00:16:54.136 --> 00:16:56.138
  • BOTH MATTHEW 4 AND LUKE 4RECORD THE STORY,
  • 00:16:56.171 --> 00:17:00.309
  • JESUS WAS IN THEWILDERNESS FOR 40 DAYS
  • 00:17:00.342 --> 00:17:02.911
  • AND REMEMBER, SATANCAME AND TEMPTED JESUS
  • 00:17:02.945 --> 00:17:05.180
  • IN THREE VERY SPECIFIC WAYS,THREE SPECIFIC TEMPTATIONS.
  • 00:17:05.214 --> 00:17:11.386
  • AND, BY THE WAY, THERE'SNOTHING IN THAT PASSAGE
  • 00:17:11.420 --> 00:17:13.188
  • THAT INDICATES THATSATAN WAS THERE
  • 00:17:13.222 --> 00:17:15.324
  • IN PERSON IN FRONT OF JESUS.
  • 00:17:15.357 --> 00:17:17.259
  • IT SAYS SATAN SPOKE TO JESUS.
  • 00:17:17.292 --> 00:17:19.728
  • VERY POSSIBLY HE SPOKE TO JESUS
  • 00:17:19.761 --> 00:17:21.497
  • THROUGH HIS MIND, WHO KNOWS.
  • 00:17:21.530 --> 00:17:23.699
  • BUT THE LIES CAME THIS WAY.
  • 00:17:23.732 --> 00:17:25.534
  • FIRST OF ALL, SATAN TRIED TOTEMP JESUS WITH DISCONTENT.
  • 00:17:25.567 --> 00:17:28.770
  • GOD HASN'T GIVEYOU WHAT YOU NEED.
  • 00:17:28.804 --> 00:17:30.539
  • WHY NOT GO AHEAD AND TURNTHESE STONES INTO BREAD?
  • 00:17:30.572 --> 00:17:33.408
  • WHAT DID JESUS DO?
  • 00:17:33.442 --> 00:17:34.843
  • HE QUOTED SCRIPTURE, "MANSHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE."
  • 00:17:34.877 --> 00:17:38.847
  • AND THEN HE CAME TOJESUS AND HE SAID,
  • 00:17:38.881 --> 00:17:40.382
  • "YOU KNOW, JESUS, THIS MESSIAHTHING IS TAKING WAY TOO LONG,
  • 00:17:40.415 --> 00:17:44.820
  • AREN'T YOU READY TO SPEED IT UP?
  • 00:17:44.853 --> 00:17:46.355
  • AREN'T YOU READY FOREVERYBODY TO EMBRACE YOU NOW?
  • 00:17:46.388 --> 00:17:48.724
  • LET'S GO UP TO THEPINNACLE OF THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:17:48.757 --> 00:17:50.826
  • WHY DON'T YOU THROWYOURSELF OFF THE PINNACLE?
  • 00:17:50.859 --> 00:17:53.295
  • GOD WILL BE OBLIGATED TOCATCH YOU, BECAUSE AFTER ALL,
  • 00:17:53.328 --> 00:17:57.065
  • HIS WORD SAYS MY ANGELS HAVEBEEN GIVEN CHARGE OVER YOU.
  • 00:17:57.099 --> 00:18:01.470
  • AND THEN EVERYBODY WILLACCEPT YOU AS MESSIAH."
  • 00:18:01.503 --> 00:18:03.572
  • HOW DID JESUS RESPONDTO THAT TEMPTATION
  • 00:18:03.605 --> 00:18:05.674
  • TO CIRCUMVENT GOD'S TIMETABLE?
  • 00:18:05.707 --> 00:18:08.143
  • AGAIN, HE QUOTEDSCRIPTURE, HE SAID,
  • 00:18:08.177 --> 00:18:09.878
  • "YOU SHALL NOT PUT THELORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST."
  • 00:18:09.912 --> 00:18:13.115
  • AND THEN HE TOOK JESUSUP ON A HIGH MOUNTAIN
  • 00:18:13.148 --> 00:18:15.083
  • AND SAID, "JESUS, SEE ALLTHE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD?
  • 00:18:15.117 --> 00:18:17.186
  • THEY CAN BE YOURS RIGHTNOW, NOT IN SOME MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:18:17.219 --> 00:18:19.621
  • NOT IN SOME NEWHEAVEN AND NEW EARTH,
  • 00:18:19.655 --> 00:18:21.089
  • RIGHT NOW, IF YOU WILL SIMPLYBOW DOWN AND WORSHIP ME."
  • 00:18:21.123 --> 00:18:24.293
  • AND AGAIN, JESUS QUOTEDTHE WORD OF GOD, AND SAID,
  • 00:18:24.326 --> 00:18:27.696
  • "YOU SHALL NOT WORSHIP ANYONEEXCEPT THE LORD YOUR GOD,
  • 00:18:27.729 --> 00:18:31.633
  • YOU ARE TO SERVE HIM ONLY."
  • 00:18:31.667 --> 00:18:34.536
  • AND THEN LUKE 4:13 SAYSWHEN THE DEVIL HAD FINISHED
  • 00:18:34.570 --> 00:18:38.006
  • HIS TEMPTATIONS,HE FLED FROM JESUS
  • 00:18:38.040 --> 00:18:40.742
  • UNTIL A MORE OPPORTUNE TIME.
  • 00:18:40.776 --> 00:18:43.579
  • NOW WHAT IS IT THAT CAUSEDTHE DEVIL TO FLEE FROM JESUS?
  • 00:18:43.612 --> 00:18:47.516
  • WHAT IS IT THAT CAUSED HIM
  • 00:18:47.549 --> 00:18:49.551
  • TO WAVE THE WHITEFLAG OF SURRENDER?
  • 00:18:49.585 --> 00:18:52.120
  • TO MY EMBARRASSMENT, THISIS WHAT I USED TO TEACH
  • 00:18:52.154 --> 00:18:55.958
  • AND PREACH AND BELIEVE, AND IBET SOME OF YOU HAVE HEARD IT
  • 00:18:55.991 --> 00:18:58.594
  • AND BELIEVED IT AS WELL.
  • 00:18:58.627 --> 00:19:00.262
  • I THOUGHT IT WAS THE WORDOF GOD THAT MADE SATAN FLEE
  • 00:19:00.295 --> 00:19:02.698
  • FROM JESUS' PRESENCE.
  • 00:19:02.731 --> 00:19:04.600
  • I ALWAYS HEARD ITSAID THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:19:04.633 --> 00:19:05.867
  • WHEN JESUS STARTEDQUOTING SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:19:05.901 --> 00:19:08.170
  • THAT'S WHAT MADE SATAN FLEEFROM THE PRESENCE OF JESUS.
  • 00:19:08.203 --> 00:19:12.441
  • HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHTTHAT'S WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:19:12.474 --> 00:19:14.776
  • THAT'S NOT WHATHAPPENED, LISTEN TO ME,
  • 00:19:14.810 --> 00:19:16.878
  • SATAN IS NOT AFRAIDOF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:19:16.912 --> 00:19:19.648
  • SATAN KNOWS THE WORD OF GODBETTER THAN MOST CHRISTIANS DO.
  • 00:19:19.681 --> 00:19:22.951
  • IN FACT, EVEN IN THISPASSAGE, HE WAS QUOTING
  • 00:19:22.985 --> 00:19:25.053
  • FROM THE BIBLE BACK TO JESUS.
  • 00:19:25.087 --> 00:19:27.122
  • THE POWER IN JESUSQUOTING SCRIPTURE WAS NOT
  • 00:19:27.155 --> 00:19:30.726
  • WHAT THE SCRIPTURE DID TO SATAN,
  • 00:19:30.759 --> 00:19:32.995
  • IT'S WHAT IT DIDFOR JESUS HIMSELF.
  • 00:19:33.028 --> 00:19:36.331
  • THAT WORD OF GOD, THERIGHT SCRIPTURE QUOTED
  • 00:19:36.365 --> 00:19:38.934
  • AT THE RIGHT TIME, HELPEDCUT THROUGH THE FOG
  • 00:19:38.967 --> 00:19:42.371
  • OF SATAN'S DECEPTIONIN JESUS' MIND.
  • 00:19:42.404 --> 00:19:44.439
  • IT HELPED JESUS TO SEETHINGS AS THEY REALLY WERE
  • 00:19:44.473 --> 00:19:47.542
  • AND IT'S THE WORD OFGOD THAT GAVE JESUS
  • 00:19:47.576 --> 00:19:49.945
  • THE STRENGTH TO SAY NO.
  • 00:19:49.978 --> 00:19:52.014
  • AND WHEN SATAN SAW HE WASN'TGETTING ANYWHERE WITH JESUS,
  • 00:19:52.047 --> 00:19:54.616
  • HE SAID I'M OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:19:54.650 --> 00:19:56.618
  • SAME THING CAN BE TRUE OF YOU.
  • 00:19:56.652 --> 00:19:58.553
  • JAMES SAID, "RESIST THE DEVILAND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU."
  • 00:19:58.587 --> 00:20:03.025
  • NOW NOTICE, JESUS DIDN'T QUOTEJUST ANY VERSE OF SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:20:03.058 --> 00:20:06.895
  • HE QUOTED THE PRECISESCRIPTURE THAT DEALT
  • 00:20:06.928 --> 00:20:10.065
  • WITH THE TEMPTATIONHE WAS FACING.
  • 00:20:10.098 --> 00:20:12.701
  • WHEN MY OLD PROFESSOR ANDMENTOR HOWARD HENDRICKS USED
  • 00:20:12.734 --> 00:20:16.705
  • TO TEACH US FROM THIS PASSAGE,
  • 00:20:16.738 --> 00:20:19.274
  • I'LL NEVER FORGET WHAT HESAID TO US IN CLASS ONE DAY.
  • 00:20:19.308 --> 00:20:22.511
  • HE SAID, "MEN, WE ALL KNOWJESUS WAS QUOTING SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:20:22.544 --> 00:20:26.181
  • BUT DID YOU KNOW,JESUS WAS QUOTING
  • 00:20:26.214 --> 00:20:27.683
  • FROM THE SAME BOOKOF THE BIBLE IN EACH
  • 00:20:27.716 --> 00:20:29.351
  • OF THOSE THREE INSTANCES?
  • 00:20:29.384 --> 00:20:31.286
  • HOW OF YOU HEREKNOW WHICH BOOK
  • 00:20:31.320 --> 00:20:33.288
  • OF THE BIBLE JESUSWAS QUOTING FROM?
  • 00:20:33.322 --> 00:20:36.591
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:20:36.625 --> 00:20:39.227
  • THEN HE WOULD SAY, "IT WASTHE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY."
  • 00:20:39.261 --> 00:20:41.596
  • ALL THREE OF THOSE QUOTES,
  • 00:20:41.630 --> 00:20:42.864
  • MAN SHALL NOT LIVEBY BREAD ALONE,
  • 00:20:42.898 --> 00:20:44.599
  • YOU SHALL NOT PUT THELORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST,
  • 00:20:44.633 --> 00:20:46.935
  • YOU SHALL WORSHIP GODAND SERVE HIM ONLY,
  • 00:20:46.968 --> 00:20:48.837
  • ALL THREE OF THOSEQUOTATIONS CAME
  • 00:20:48.870 --> 00:20:50.605
  • FROM THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY.
  • 00:20:50.639 --> 00:20:53.742
  • AND THEN PROF.HENDRICKS WOULD SAY,
  • 00:20:53.775 --> 00:20:54.943
  • "MEN, IF YOUR SPIRITUALSURVIVAL DEPENDED
  • 00:20:54.976 --> 00:20:59.381
  • UPON HOW WELL YOU KNEWTHE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY,
  • 00:20:59.414 --> 00:21:03.719
  • HOW WELL WOULD YOU DO?"
  • 00:21:03.752 --> 00:21:06.421
  • AND THEN HE WOULDADD THE ZINGER,
  • 00:21:06.455 --> 00:21:08.290
  • "MAYBE THAT'S WHY YOU'RENOT HAVING ANY MORE SUCCESS
  • 00:21:08.323 --> 00:21:11.126
  • IN YOUR LIFE THAN YOU ARE."

  • SEE, KNOWING GOD'S WORD, BEINGABLE TO USE IT SKILLFULLY,
  • 00:21:14.162 --> 00:21:18.100

  • FOR JESUS CHRIST, THEPERFECT SON OF GOD,
  • 00:21:20.102 --> 00:21:22.437
  • IF THAT IS THE ONLYWAY HE WAS ABLE
  • 00:21:22.471 --> 00:21:24.406
  • TO DEFEAT SATAN'S ATTACKS,HOW MUCH MORE IMPORTANT
  • 00:21:24.439 --> 00:21:28.043

  • TO KNOW GOD'S WORD SO THATWE CAN USE IT PRECISELY

  • IN THE RIGHT WAYAT THE RIGHT TIME
  • 00:21:34.916 --> 00:21:36.952
  • TO CUT THAT FOG OF DECEPTION,TO SEE TRUTH AS IT IS,
  • 00:21:36.985 --> 00:21:40.422
  • TO GIVE OURSELVESTHE STRENGTH WE NEED

  • SOMEBODY HAS SAID THETEST OF A MAN'S CHARACTER

  • IS WHAT IT TAKES TO STOP HIM.
