  • 00:00:18.364 --> 00:00:22.135
  • when we just ran outof time, we were about to,
  • 00:00:22.168 --> 00:00:26.840
  • we found out somethings about Judas. Now,
  • 00:00:26.873 --> 00:00:31.077
  • his name was Judah.And, but I'm not going to take
  • 00:00:31.111 --> 00:00:37.283
  • another second. I want to getthe professor back in here
  • 00:00:37.317 --> 00:00:40.720
  • because that, Hey, he's openingour eyes on things, glory to
  • 00:00:40.753 --> 00:00:44.424
  • God, those of you that are justnow getting in here, go back and
  • 00:00:44.457 --> 00:00:47.794
  • get all the last week and all ofthis and just, just, just watch
  • 00:00:47.827 --> 00:00:51.231
  • them all. Praise God, becausewe've gotten into things that,
  • 00:00:51.264 --> 00:00:54.367
  • that are very, very, very, very,very uncommon things that are
  • 00:00:54.400 --> 00:01:00.573
  • just not taught anywhere. Everyone of them just verse after
  • 00:01:00.607 --> 00:01:04.811
  • verse. GREG: Jesus says I didn'tcome to destroy the law, but to
  • 00:01:04.844 --> 00:01:08.748
  • fulfill it. Everything he doesis fulfillment. KENNETH: Every
  • 00:01:08.781 --> 00:01:11.251
  • word. GREG: Because it has to befulfilled. And we were talking
  • 00:01:11.284 --> 00:01:15.088
  • about how he had just washed thedisciples feet. He's doing
  • 00:01:15.121 --> 00:01:18.691
  • exactly what Moses did forAaron. He is setting in a new
  • 00:01:18.725 --> 00:01:21.995
  • priesthood of a new covenantapostles of the lamb is what
  • 00:01:22.028 --> 00:01:25.732
  • he's doing. And after that,Jesus will say, verse 18, I
  • 00:01:25.765 --> 00:01:31.337
  • speak of John chapter 13 verse18. I speak not of all of you. I
  • 00:01:31.371 --> 00:01:35.575
  • know whom I've chosen, but then-KENNETH: For those just joining
  • 00:01:35.608 --> 00:01:39.312
  • we're talking about, we'rezeroing in on Judas. GREG: Yes.
  • 00:01:39.345 --> 00:01:42.715
  • Because Judas sir, has alwaysbeen a problem for me. How could
  • 00:01:42.749 --> 00:01:46.252
  • he see the things he saw? Howcould he see Peter walk on water
  • 00:01:46.286 --> 00:01:50.456
  • with him? How could he see thedead come to life? How could he
  • 00:01:50.490 --> 00:01:53.526
  • see all these things and losehis salvation? That's what I was
  • 00:01:53.560 --> 00:01:56.829
  • taught that, well, you better bebehave or you could end up like
  • 00:01:56.863 --> 00:02:01.267
  • Judas. I was, I was in fear Iwould end up like Judas.
  • 00:02:01.301 --> 00:02:04.637
  • KENNETH: Well, as you pointedout last week, he never was a
  • 00:02:04.671 --> 00:02:07.607
  • believer in the start. GREG:Never was a believer. I'll show
  • 00:02:07.640 --> 00:02:09.876
  • it to you. Jesus will say it. Ispeak not of all of you I know-
  • 00:02:09.909 --> 00:02:14.647
  • verse 18. I speak not all of youI know whom I've chosen, but
  • 00:02:14.681 --> 00:02:20.887
  • that the scripture may befulfilled. So now when I see
  • 00:02:20.920 --> 00:02:23.089
  • that I'm always looking okay,where is it being fulfilled?
  • 00:02:23.122 --> 00:02:26.359
  • What's being fulfilled? He thateateth bread with me hath lifted
  • 00:02:26.392 --> 00:02:32.165
  • up his heel against me. Well,it's over here in Psalm 41 verse
  • 00:02:32.198 --> 00:02:37.337
  • 9, my own familiar friend inwhom I've trusted. David is
  • 00:02:37.370 --> 00:02:41.274
  • writing, which did eat of mybread, has lifted up his heel
  • 00:02:41.307 --> 00:02:44.177
  • against me. Now, who is thatguy? He's a counselor of David
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:47.380
  • for the throne. Ahitophel is theway I say his name. And he
  • 00:02:47.413 --> 00:02:51.951
  • turned on David and went toAbsalom, his son did, and
  • 00:02:51.985 --> 00:02:55.955
  • Absalom's rebellion. He's goingto end up hanging himself.
  • 00:02:55.989 --> 00:02:58.625
  • KENNETH: And that's what Judasdid. GREG: It's exactly what
  • 00:02:58.658 --> 00:03:02.295
  • Judas did. So this is what Jesusis saying when he says that it
  • 00:03:02.328 --> 00:03:06.799
  • may be fulfilled, he's going tofulfill it exactly to the
  • 00:03:06.833 --> 00:03:10.336
  • letter. Alright. Now I tell you,before it come to pass verse 19,
  • 00:03:10.370 --> 00:03:17.410
  • that when it comes to pass, youmay believe that I am. And he is
  • 00:03:17.443 --> 00:03:21.848
  • in italicized there. He's givingthem the word, showing them I'm
  • 00:03:21.881 --> 00:03:26.419
  • in control of this. What's aboutto happen I'm in control. You
  • 00:03:26.452 --> 00:03:30.957
  • can trust me. I am, whatever'sgoing to happen it's going to be
  • 00:03:30.990 --> 00:03:34.394
  • a contradiction to me being theMessiah, but it's not a
  • 00:03:34.427 --> 00:03:36.763
  • contradiction. I'm in control.So he goes on down here, when
  • 00:03:36.796 --> 00:03:40.967
  • Jesus had thus said he wastroubled in spirit, it says in
  • 00:03:41.000 --> 00:03:45.438
  • verse 21, and testified. He'stroubled in spirit because this
  • 00:03:45.471 --> 00:03:50.877
  • thing had just hit him. Oh, thatwhole thing with David's about
  • 00:03:50.910 --> 00:03:54.781
  • to come to pass. Verily, verilyI say unto you, that one of you
  • 00:03:54.814 --> 00:04:00.386
  • shall betray me. Then thedisciples look, wonder another
  • 00:04:00.420 --> 00:04:05.124
  • doubting of whom he's saying.Well, who's he talking about?
  • 00:04:05.158 --> 00:04:07.493
  • And they're looking around theroom. Now. There was one leaning
  • 00:04:07.527 --> 00:04:10.163
  • on Jesus' bosom. One of hisdisciples whom Jesus loved. This
  • 00:04:10.196 --> 00:04:13.366
  • is John. Simon Peter, thereforebeckoned to him. Simon's
  • 00:04:13.399 --> 00:04:17.203
  • somewhere else on the table overthere. Hey, Hey, asking who it
  • 00:04:17.236 --> 00:04:21.908
  • is that he, that he wants toknow who it is. Cause I really
  • 00:04:21.941 --> 00:04:25.812
  • believe he would've popped him.KENNETH: Oh yeah. GREG: You
  • 00:04:25.845 --> 00:04:29.382
  • didn't mess with Peter at all.He's wanting to know who this
  • 00:04:29.415 --> 00:04:33.619
  • is. He said then lying on Jesus'bosom said, so he didn't say
  • 00:04:33.653 --> 00:04:37.990
  • this out loud where everybodyheard it. Who is it? Jesus
  • 00:04:38.024 --> 00:04:41.227
  • answered he wouldn't have had tosay it loud either cause he's
  • 00:04:41.260 --> 00:04:43.563
  • right here. He is to whom Ishall give this up when I have
  • 00:04:43.596 --> 00:04:48.267
  • dipped it. And he gave , andwhen he had dipped, he gave it
  • 00:04:48.301 --> 00:04:53.039
  • to Judas Iscariot, the son ofSimon. Now what are we dipping?
  • 00:04:53.072 --> 00:04:55.942
  • We're dipping the bitter herbs.We're dipping that broken piece
  • 00:04:55.975 --> 00:04:59.412
  • with the, with the lettuce init. And it's the second dipping.
  • 00:04:59.445 --> 00:05:05.284
  • And it stands for the sufferingand it stands for slavery. Yes.
  • 00:05:05.318 --> 00:05:11.224
  • He partook of the suffering ofJesus. He's the only one that
  • 00:05:11.257 --> 00:05:15.828
  • Jesus allowed to do that withhim. KENNETH: So he still had a
  • 00:05:15.862 --> 00:05:19.632
  • piece of the unleavened bread.GREG: This is what we're going
  • 00:05:19.665 --> 00:05:21.634
  • to do, we're going to eat thatfound peace. And we're going to
  • 00:05:21.667 --> 00:05:24.937
  • break it and we're going to dipit again. This is a second time
  • 00:05:24.971 --> 00:05:28.141
  • we've done this. And he will, atthat point, dip into his
  • 00:05:28.174 --> 00:05:31.144
  • suffering with it. He'llcovenant into the suffering. Now
  • 00:05:31.177 --> 00:05:35.615
  • Jesus already said to them whereI'm going, you can't go, well,
  • 00:05:35.648 --> 00:05:38.618
  • this guy decided I'm goingthere. So when you look at this,
  • 00:05:38.651 --> 00:05:42.989
  • let's see Judas Iscariot, theson of Simon. Now that's an
  • 00:05:43.022 --> 00:05:51.130
  • interesting thing. And it saysverse 27. And after the SOP,
  • 00:05:51.164 --> 00:05:54.734
  • Satan entered into him, thensaid, Jesus unto him, thou that
  • 00:05:54.767 --> 00:05:59.071
  • thou doest do it quickly. And noman at the table knew for one
  • 00:05:59.105 --> 00:06:03.576
  • intent he spoke this unto him,for some of them thought because
  • 00:06:03.609 --> 00:06:06.379
  • Judas had the bag that Jesussaid to him buy things that are
  • 00:06:06.412 --> 00:06:10.483
  • needed or that he should go giveto the poor. He's done this
  • 00:06:10.516 --> 00:06:13.853
  • before. He then having receivedthe sob went immediately out and
  • 00:06:13.886 --> 00:06:18.791
  • it was night. John makes apoint. He went out into the
  • 00:06:18.825 --> 00:06:21.828
  • darkness. Remember the first,very first Passover. Once you're
  • 00:06:21.861 --> 00:06:24.997
  • in, you're in for the night, youdon't go out. KENNETH: Yeah,
  • 00:06:25.031 --> 00:06:28.167
  • that's right. GREG: Therefore,when he was gone out, Jesus
  • 00:06:28.201 --> 00:06:31.737
  • said, now the whole scene willchange. Once he's out of the
  • 00:06:31.771 --> 00:06:35.374
  • building. Now is the son of manglorified and his God is
  • 00:06:35.408 --> 00:06:40.179
  • glorified in him. So now let'sget back up here real quickly to
  • 00:06:40.213 --> 00:06:43.449
  • this. He says Judas Iscariot,son of Simon, Judas son of Simon
  • 00:06:43.483 --> 00:06:48.721
  • is his name. Iscariot is not aname. It's more of a place. It's
  • 00:06:48.754 --> 00:06:54.594
  • a place Keriof, which is Southof Jerusalem from the tribe of
  • 00:06:54.627 --> 00:07:00.766
  • Judah, from the South, everyother disciples from the North.
  • 00:07:00.800 --> 00:07:04.437
  • He's the only one theologiansbelieve that was from the South.
  • 00:07:04.470 --> 00:07:07.974
  • Why does that matter? Well, thatarea is where Esau descendants
  • 00:07:08.007 --> 00:07:13.946
  • lived. What's the deal withEsau? Well we go back over here
  • 00:07:13.980 --> 00:07:18.918
  • to this verse, the heel, thewhole heel verse, remember when
  • 00:07:18.951 --> 00:07:25.525
  • Jacob and Esau were born, Jacobhad a hold of his heel. And so
  • 00:07:25.558 --> 00:07:31.297
  • here we have David. Now we haveJacob. Now we have Genesis. So
  • 00:07:31.330 --> 00:07:37.470
  • I've got three different versesthat this act is fulfilling.
  • 00:07:37.503 --> 00:07:41.207
  • That versus not in there by anyaccident for it to be there.
  • 00:07:41.240 --> 00:07:45.811
  • Cause he's fulfilling everythingthat happens with Judas. So
  • 00:07:45.845 --> 00:07:49.649
  • Judah, member Judas sold Josephinto slavery into, well it was
  • 00:07:49.682 --> 00:07:55.721
  • Judah and his brothers, but theysold him. He ends up in-
  • 00:07:55.755 --> 00:07:58.958
  • KENNETH: Judah was the, he wasthe top guy. GREG: Yes, he was.
  • 00:07:58.991 --> 00:08:03.429
  • KENNETH: He made the decisions.GREG: And Joseph ends up, now
  • 00:08:03.462 --> 00:08:08.234
  • here's the, here's the beauty ofthis. Joseph ends up and we know
  • 00:08:08.267 --> 00:08:11.237
  • he sold to Potiphar. We know hewas sold for 20 pieces of
  • 00:08:11.270 --> 00:08:14.340
  • silver, Jesus will be sold for30 pieces of silver. Joseph is a
  • 00:08:14.373 --> 00:08:17.910
  • favorite son of his father,right? Jesus is the only
  • 00:08:17.944 --> 00:08:22.148
  • begotten son of his father. Imean, the typology is all over
  • 00:08:22.181 --> 00:08:26.586
  • the place for Joseph and Jesus.Joseph will become the prime
  • 00:08:26.619 --> 00:08:31.390
  • minister of Egypt. He'll provideprosperity, so his brother's-
  • 00:08:31.424 --> 00:08:36.696
  • KENNETH: At 30 years old. GREG:At 30 years old falsely accused.
  • 00:08:36.729 --> 00:08:40.099
  • And they will come down intoEgypt and there's Judah standing
  • 00:08:40.132 --> 00:08:47.173
  • in front of him. Doesn'trecognize him. He's dressed like
  • 00:08:47.206 --> 00:08:49.542
  • an Egyptian. So his brothers seehim, but don't recognize him.
  • 00:08:49.575 --> 00:08:53.012
  • Now we just saw that in thatother verse, their eyes are
  • 00:08:53.045 --> 00:08:55.948
  • blinded. They can't see him forwho he is. They just, they see
  • 00:08:55.982 --> 00:08:59.785
  • this prime minister, thisEgyptian. He has two sons,
  • 00:08:59.819 --> 00:09:02.388
  • Ephraim and Manasseh. Now theyare half Jewish because of
  • 00:09:02.421 --> 00:09:08.628
  • Joseph, their father, they'regoing to end up with a full
  • 00:09:08.661 --> 00:09:11.831
  • portion. They haven't been partof Israel yet, but they're going
  • 00:09:11.864 --> 00:09:16.035
  • to be grafted in. Matter offact, when they go in Ephraim
  • 00:09:16.068 --> 00:09:18.537
  • and Manasseh will go in, andyou're already ahead of me,
  • 00:09:18.571 --> 00:09:21.073
  • they're going to go in his son,he's married to a Gentile bride.
  • 00:09:21.107 --> 00:09:24.510
  • Joseph. KENNETH: Yes. Thank God.GREG: I know. And so these sons
  • 00:09:24.543 --> 00:09:29.682
  • of his will be of a group thatthey don't know of. They don't
  • 00:09:29.715 --> 00:09:34.053
  • know Joseph has another groupthere that's going to be grafted
  • 00:09:34.086 --> 00:09:37.423
  • in with them. And to this day,they'll always pray may you be
  • 00:09:37.456 --> 00:09:41.293
  • like to their children, Ephraimand Manasseh. Why? There was
  • 00:09:41.327 --> 00:09:44.230
  • never any strife recordedbetween those two tribes. Not
  • 00:09:44.263 --> 00:09:47.366
  • one time was it named amongthem. So he will tell them
  • 00:09:47.400 --> 00:09:50.503
  • where's Benjamin? Or do you havea younger brother? Is there
  • 00:09:50.536 --> 00:09:52.905
  • another brother? Yeah. Benjaminour younger brother. Now
  • 00:09:52.938 --> 00:09:54.940
  • Benjamin is the whole brother ofJoseph from the same mother. So
  • 00:09:54.974 --> 00:09:59.912
  • they bring Benjamin back down,Jesus ministries in Benjamin, in
  • 00:09:59.945 --> 00:10:02.848
  • the territory of Benjamin. Theybring Benjamin back down here to
  • 00:10:02.882 --> 00:10:07.353
  • him, remember the whole story ofhow that all happened. And they
  • 00:10:07.386 --> 00:10:11.657
  • end up, he's going to ask forhis bones to not be left in
  • 00:10:11.691 --> 00:10:15.728
  • Egypt when they go into thepromised land some 400 years
  • 00:10:15.761 --> 00:10:18.597
  • later. Joshua will take thebones of Joseph into the
  • 00:10:18.631 --> 00:10:23.769
  • promised land. Now what's thebig deal about that? Well,
  • 00:10:23.803 --> 00:10:28.274
  • Joshua's name is Yeshua.KENNETH: Yes, it is. GREG:
  • 00:10:28.307 --> 00:10:30.342
  • Yeshua. KENNETH: And the KingJames in the book of Hebrews
  • 00:10:30.376 --> 00:10:33.479
  • it's translated Jesus and peoplereally get, huh? But that's the
  • 00:10:33.512 --> 00:10:38.584
  • reason why. GREG: So Yeshua willtake Joseph by covenant. He
  • 00:10:38.617 --> 00:10:42.021
  • promises covenant promise. 400years later, Yeshua will take
  • 00:10:42.054 --> 00:10:45.991
  • Joseph burial into the promisedland. Now when Yeshua in a few
  • 00:10:46.025 --> 00:10:53.099
  • hours from this will die, aJoseph will take his body,
  • 00:10:53.132 --> 00:10:58.237
  • Joseph and Mary, all of thisstuff. KENNETH: That's what is
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:11:04.410
  • so absolutely uncanny. That'sthe reason this is an a
  • 00:11:04.443 --> 00:11:12.485
  • supernatural book because it isso exact. And I don't care how
  • 00:11:12.518 --> 00:11:19.458
  • long you study it, you justcan't trip it up. GREG: No.
  • 00:11:19.492 --> 00:11:24.630
  • KENNETH: It's just amazing tome. GREG: It's written by God.
  • 00:11:24.663 --> 00:11:26.932
  • KENNETH: Yes it is. GREG: Andwhen you make all the
  • 00:11:26.966 --> 00:11:29.735
  • connections and that's what Ipray every morning, Lord reveal
  • 00:11:29.769 --> 00:11:32.004
  • yourself to me today. Let me seeyou. And he shows me, how does
  • 00:11:32.037 --> 00:11:36.142
  • he show, does he show up in yourroom? He shows up. Yeah. In his
  • 00:11:36.175 --> 00:11:38.744
  • word. I start makingconnections. Now, Judas chose
  • 00:11:38.778 --> 00:11:42.848
  • that night to dip that whenJesus offered it to him, Jesus
  • 00:11:42.882 --> 00:11:46.585
  • knew from the very beginning itwas him and he covered him. He
  • 00:11:46.619 --> 00:11:52.758
  • covered him. Let me show you inJohn chapter 6. Now, before you
  • 00:11:52.792 --> 00:12:00.566
  • say Jesus chose Judas and thenrejected him. No, he did not. He
  • 00:12:00.599 --> 00:12:05.371
  • did not reject him. He neverbroke covenant. KENNETH: He
  • 00:12:05.404 --> 00:12:08.741
  • never did, he called him friendright at the very last second.
  • 00:12:08.774 --> 00:12:11.377
  • And you know, and people thatdon't understand that in
  • 00:12:11.410 --> 00:12:14.480
  • covenant language, back in theday, if you were in blood
  • 00:12:14.513 --> 00:12:22.955
  • covenant with somebody Sergio,you were capital F friend and in
  • 00:12:22.988 --> 00:12:30.095
  • the King James version of theBible, James that's the oldest
  • 00:12:30.129 --> 00:12:35.601
  • book in the New Testament. Thehalf brother of Jesus said that
  • 00:12:35.634 --> 00:12:42.208
  • Abraham was God's Friend. And inthe King James version, it's
  • 00:12:42.241 --> 00:12:47.046
  • capitalized. Friend, the friendof God. And when the, at the
  • 00:12:47.079 --> 00:12:53.118
  • very last moment Jesus calledJudas friend. And he made a
  • 00:12:53.152 --> 00:13:00.860
  • point of that in that covenantmeal, I no longer call you
  • 00:13:00.893 --> 00:13:05.731
  • servants. GREG: I call youfriends. And that's exactly what
  • 00:13:05.764 --> 00:13:12.071
  • happened. Let me just show youthis over here hat he knew. And
  • 00:13:12.104 --> 00:13:17.943
  • I believe with the kisses, thedisciples didn't know till the
  • 00:13:17.977 --> 00:13:22.114
  • kiss happened and they arrestedhim. Now, Peter tried to cut off
  • 00:13:22.147 --> 00:13:25.751
  • Malchus' head not his ear. Hadhe known this why he's asking
  • 00:13:25.784 --> 00:13:31.090
  • John, if he'd have known rightthen he had taken Judas out.
  • 00:13:31.123 --> 00:13:33.792
  • That's not gonna happen, becausePeter's boasted of that. And
  • 00:13:33.826 --> 00:13:37.296
  • he'll even boast it and he said,you will deny me before the
  • 00:13:37.329 --> 00:13:40.366
  • rooster crows three times.KENNETH: Greg, it had already
  • 00:13:40.399 --> 00:13:48.674
  • been spoken in the firstcovenant that this man would
  • 00:13:48.707 --> 00:13:55.247
  • hang himself, there is no wayPeter could have killed him, no
  • 00:13:55.281 --> 00:13:59.885
  • possible way. GREG: But he wouldtry. KENNETH: Well, yeah,
  • 00:13:59.919 --> 00:14:02.955
  • because Peter wasn't that muchof a scholar. He believed the
  • 00:14:02.988 --> 00:14:08.727
  • book, but he wasn't a scholar.He's a fishermen. But it had
  • 00:14:08.761 --> 00:14:13.432
  • already been said that he'sgoing to be hung. No way he
  • 00:14:13.465 --> 00:14:19.204
  • could have been killed any otherway. GREG: That's right. That's
  • 00:14:19.238 --> 00:14:21.273
  • exactly right. So I believe thisJudas was never a believer. And
  • 00:14:21.307 --> 00:14:29.281
  • here's where I get it from Johnchapter 6. This is earlier on.
  • 00:14:29.315 --> 00:14:34.520
  • You can read the whole storyabout what's happening here in
  • 00:14:34.553 --> 00:14:37.556
  • verse 35. I am the bread oflife, He that comes to me shall
  • 00:14:37.589 --> 00:14:40.292
  • never hunger. He believes on meshall never thirst. Jesus is
  • 00:14:40.326 --> 00:14:43.295
  • teaching all of this and he getsover here and he starts teaching
  • 00:14:43.329 --> 00:14:47.066
  • about that I am the bread thatcomes down from heaven. You get
  • 00:14:47.099 --> 00:14:50.035
  • to verse 53, except you eat theflesh of the son of man and
  • 00:14:50.069 --> 00:14:53.672
  • drink his blood you have no lifein you. Whosoever eat my flesh.
  • 00:14:53.706 --> 00:14:57.743
  • And now this, this is inCapernaum. He starts teaching
  • 00:14:57.776 --> 00:15:00.512
  • this and they're all looking ateach other. What is he talking
  • 00:15:00.546 --> 00:15:03.916
  • about? We don't drink blood.We're commanded not to drink
  • 00:15:03.949 --> 00:15:06.485
  • blood. Down here, as the livingfather has sent me, I live by
  • 00:15:06.518 --> 00:15:12.458
  • the father. So he that eateth meshall lived by me. This is the
  • 00:15:12.491 --> 00:15:17.096
  • bread, which came down fromheaven, not as your father's did
  • 00:15:17.129 --> 00:15:19.698
  • eat manna and are dead, for hethat eeat of this bread shall
  • 00:15:19.732 --> 00:15:22.968
  • live forever. These things saidhe in the synagogue, as he
  • 00:15:23.002 --> 00:15:26.205
  • taught in Capernaum. Now, manyof his disciples, when he'd
  • 00:15:26.238 --> 00:15:29.641
  • heard this, this is a hardsaying who can hear it? When
  • 00:15:29.675 --> 00:15:33.112
  • Jesus knew in himself that thedisciples murmured at this, he
  • 00:15:33.145 --> 00:15:36.882
  • said unto them, does this offendyou? And if you shall see the
  • 00:15:36.915 --> 00:15:41.954
  • son of man ascend up where hewas before in the spirit that
  • 00:15:41.987 --> 00:15:46.225
  • quickeneth the flesh livingprophet and nothing in the
  • 00:15:46.258 --> 00:15:48.394
  • spirit, they are alive. You goon down here and look at verse
  • 00:15:48.427 --> 00:15:50.963
  • 64. But there are some of youthat believe not. Now right
  • 00:15:50.996 --> 00:15:56.201
  • behind it, so we're trying tofigure out well, who is that?
  • 00:15:56.235 --> 00:15:58.704
  • Right behind it tells you forJesus knew from the beginning
  • 00:15:58.737 --> 00:16:01.006
  • who they were that believe not,and who would betray. KENNETH:
  • 00:16:01.040 --> 00:16:05.177
  • There it is right there. That'splain enough, man. GREG: He's
  • 00:16:05.210 --> 00:16:08.447
  • not a believer. KENNETH: He'snot a believer. He hadn't
  • 00:16:08.480 --> 00:16:10.382
  • believed this whole time. GREG:And it goes back to what you
  • 00:16:10.416 --> 00:16:12.885
  • started with at the beginning ofthis week. When we talk about
  • 00:16:12.918 --> 00:16:15.788
  • believing on Christ or that nameand confessing him. I read to
  • 00:16:15.821 --> 00:16:21.060
  • you where the Pharisees manybelieved on him, but they would
  • 00:16:21.093 --> 00:16:23.662
  • never confess him. Look rightover here, we'll go over here to
  • 00:16:23.695 --> 00:16:27.633
  • verse verse 70, John 6:70, Jesusanswered them, have not I chosen
  • 00:16:27.666 --> 00:16:37.076
  • you 12, and one of you is adevil. Look at this. He spake of
  • 00:16:37.109 --> 00:16:41.980
  • Judas Iscariot the son of Simon,for he it was that should betray
  • 00:16:42.014 --> 00:16:47.619
  • him being one of the 12. He wasnever a believer. He had never
  • 00:16:47.653 --> 00:16:52.891
  • confessed. Peter did it. Petersaid, you are the son of the
  • 00:16:52.925 --> 00:16:56.962
  • living God, you are the-KENNETH: You're the Christ.
  • 00:16:56.995 --> 00:16:58.864
  • GREG: You're the Christ. ButJudas apparently had never done
  • 00:16:58.897 --> 00:17:02.935
  • that. He was, he was exposed forwhat he was. Well we know this,
  • 00:17:02.968 --> 00:17:11.043
  • he was a thief. He stole fromthe money bag all the time. And
  • 00:17:11.076 --> 00:17:15.080
  • he just never, he never had madehim Lord of his life. When we
  • 00:17:15.114 --> 00:17:19.451
  • say Jesus is Lord, that's notjust words, that's not just
  • 00:17:19.485 --> 00:17:24.623
  • words. And so- KENNETH: And Imight add to that right there
  • 00:17:24.656 --> 00:17:28.427
  • there's a lot of people, now I'mtalking about good people, but
  • 00:17:28.460 --> 00:17:31.563
  • we're talking about power here.There's a lot of people, for
  • 00:17:31.597 --> 00:17:36.001
  • instance, Jesus is my savior,but he's not Lord. Well, I mean,
  • 00:17:36.034 --> 00:17:44.309
  • what do you mean BrotherCopeland? Well, you know, I take
  • 00:17:44.343 --> 00:17:48.013
  • my Bible to church with me everySunday and he's Lord and a man,
  • 00:17:48.046 --> 00:17:51.583
  • I love amazing grace, and I'mborn again, and I'm filled with
  • 00:17:51.617 --> 00:17:54.553
  • the Spirit of God. I don't pickthat book up maybe twice a
  • 00:17:54.586 --> 00:17:58.257
  • month. He's not Lord. Cause youdon't have any idea what he's
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:02.161
  • saying, you're too busy doingstuff. In the book of Hebrews is
  • 00:18:02.194 --> 00:18:04.796
  • called dull of hearing. GREG:You remember when an end of day
  • 00:18:04.830 --> 00:18:09.801
  • that said, we cast out devils inyour name and he said, but I
  • 00:18:09.835 --> 00:18:12.804
  • never knew you. This is apicture of it. KENNETH: Yes it
  • 00:18:12.838 --> 00:18:16.508
  • is. GREG: Because Jesus sent himout with the 70. Even the devils
  • 00:18:16.542 --> 00:18:19.845
  • are subject to us in your name,but I never knew you. You never
  • 00:18:19.878 --> 00:18:22.548
  • confessed me as your Lord. Younever made that. It was all-
  • 00:18:22.581 --> 00:18:26.084
  • Brother Hagin called it metalascent. KENNETH: Mental ascent.
  • 00:18:26.118 --> 00:18:28.887
  • Yeah. It's mental faith. NowThomas had that. GREG: But he
  • 00:18:28.921 --> 00:18:36.295
  • switched over. KENNETH: Heswitched over. GREG: Yes he did.
  • 00:18:36.328 --> 00:18:38.096
  • Yes, absolutely right. So Judasis not a picture of a believer
  • 00:18:38.130 --> 00:18:42.568
  • that lost his salvation or hisrelationship. He is a picture of
  • 00:18:42.601 --> 00:18:46.805
  • a mental ascent person or anunbeliever that was exposed.
  • 00:18:46.838 --> 00:18:50.108
  • That's what he is. Now afterthis, you can look at it back
  • 00:18:50.142 --> 00:18:55.847
  • here- I'm sorry. Let me get backhere. I know we're short on
  • 00:18:55.881 --> 00:18:58.383
  • time, but you get back here. Nowthings change after he's left
  • 00:18:58.417 --> 00:19:02.588
  • the room. KENNETH: This is inJohn 13. GREG: John13, after
  • 00:19:02.621 --> 00:19:06.225
  • he's left the room, they willbegin the praise at the end of
  • 00:19:06.258 --> 00:19:10.829
  • that Passover Seder. KENNETH:Now what verse are we in? GREG:
  • 00:19:10.862 --> 00:19:15.734
  • When he now, as the son of Godis the son of man glorified and
  • 00:19:15.767 --> 00:19:20.572
  • God is glorified in him. Andhe'll talk then into chapter 14,
  • 00:19:20.606 --> 00:19:24.409
  • let not your heart be troubled.You believe in God, believe also
  • 00:19:24.443 --> 00:19:26.845
  • in me. You know what they startdoing? Here's what they always
  • 00:19:26.878 --> 00:19:29.114
  • do at the end of Passover. Sowhen Judas leaves the room, they
  • 00:19:29.147 --> 00:19:31.783
  • go to Psalm 136. KENNETH: Hismercy endures forever. GREG:
  • 00:19:31.817 --> 00:19:36.088
  • They will read it and they startsinging it for the Lord is good.
  • 00:19:36.121 --> 00:19:41.526
  • KENNETH: And his chesed enduresforever. GREG: And they start
  • 00:19:41.560 --> 00:19:45.864
  • doing that. And when they dothat, the glory enters the room
  • 00:19:45.897 --> 00:19:49.001
  • because he begins to preach thenabout the glory of God. And he's
  • 00:19:49.034 --> 00:19:53.639
  • going to preach chapter 14, 15and 16. Psalm 136. Oh give
  • 00:19:53.672 --> 00:19:58.644
  • thanks unto the Lord for he isgood for his mercy endures
  • 00:19:58.677 --> 00:20:02.281
  • forever. And they'll say it withhim. Oh, give thanks to the God
  • 00:20:02.314 --> 00:20:05.817
  • of gods for his mercy endurethforever. Oh give thanks to the
  • 00:20:05.851 --> 00:20:08.887
  • Lord of Lords for his mercyendureth forever. To him alone,
  • 00:20:08.920 --> 00:20:14.026
  • who does great wonders for hismercy endureth forever. What
  • 00:20:14.059 --> 00:20:17.129
  • they're doing is they're gettingtheir eyes, and they do this at
  • 00:20:17.162 --> 00:20:19.564
  • the end of Passover, Psalm 136.This is exactly, when Judas
  • 00:20:19.598 --> 00:20:23.435
  • leaves the room, this is whatthey start doing. And they start
  • 00:20:23.468 --> 00:20:27.639
  • glorifying God. And they starttalking about your chesed
  • 00:20:27.673 --> 00:20:30.575
  • endures forever. And this iswhat's strengthening him for
  • 00:20:30.609 --> 00:20:34.780
  • what's about to happen in thegarden. And they all began to
  • 00:20:34.813 --> 00:20:38.116
  • worship. KENNETH: And that wordchesed, a covenant word that
  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:41.653
  • Gentile just don't understand atall. And mercy says it, but when
  • 00:20:41.687 --> 00:20:48.060
  • you know what i means, and youstudy that out. When Jehoshaphat
  • 00:20:48.093 --> 00:20:56.268
  • and the choir singers up infront of the army began to sing
  • 00:20:56.301 --> 00:21:01.840
  • that they began to sing chesed,chesed, his mercy, chesed,
  • 00:21:01.873 --> 00:21:06.645
  • they're saying the same thing.His mercy endures forever. His
  • 00:21:06.678 --> 00:21:09.881
  • chesed, his chesed, it'scovenant armor of almighty God.
  • 00:21:09.915 --> 00:21:17.189
  • The great one of the covenantagainst the enemies of this
  • 00:21:17.222 --> 00:21:23.428
  • little guys, and Jehoshaphat andthem didn't have a chance, man.
  • 00:21:23.462 --> 00:21:27.632
  • But the guy prophesied, Hey,stand still. You gotta go up
  • 00:21:27.666 --> 00:21:34.239
  • there, but the battle is theLord's and the victory is yours.
  • 00:21:34.272 --> 00:21:37.209
  • And when they began to singchesed that moment when they
  • 00:21:37.242 --> 00:21:41.947
  • said mercy, or when they saidchesed, chesed, chesed at the
  • 00:21:41.980 --> 00:21:46.618
  • moment they said that is whenGod calls the ambush and they
  • 00:21:46.651 --> 00:21:51.823
  • fought against themselves. GREG:And that's going to play out.
  • 00:21:51.857 --> 00:21:55.727
  • Here's why they read it. If youlook at Psalm 136 to him that
  • 00:21:55.761 --> 00:21:59.164
  • smote Egypt and their firstbornfor his mercy endures forever
  • 00:21:59.197 --> 00:22:02.300
  • and brought out Israel fromamong them, for his mercy
  • 00:22:02.334 --> 00:22:05.170
  • endureth forever. See the firstborn of the Godhead is about to
  • 00:22:05.203 --> 00:22:08.673
  • get- KENNETH: Oh dear Lord.GREG: And so he's crying out. He
  • 00:22:08.707 --> 00:22:12.477
  • knows what's happening. Hismercy endures with a strong
  • 00:22:12.511 --> 00:22:16.915
  • hand, where they stretched outfor his mercy endures forever.
  • 00:22:16.948 --> 00:22:20.285
