  • [ANNOUNCER] FROM THE PULPIT
  • 00:00:07.000 --> 00:00:08.050
  • OF THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF DALLAS, TEXAS,
  • 00:00:08.060 --> 00:00:10.090
  • THIS IS PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:10.100 --> 00:00:14.210
  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS,
  • 00:00:14.220 --> 00:00:16.030
  • AND WELCOME AGAIN TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:16.040 --> 00:00:19.030
  • AS GODLESS POLITICIANS BECOME MORE AND MORE ENAMORED
  • 00:00:19.040 --> 00:00:22.190
  • WITH INCLUSION AND TOLERANCE,
  • 00:00:22.200 --> 00:00:26.030
  • OUR COUNTRY SEEMS TO BE SPIRALING
  • 00:00:26.040 --> 00:00:28.090
  • DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO MORAL DECLINE.
  • 00:00:28.100 --> 00:00:31.280
  • BEHAVIORS THAT WERE TABOO 50 YEARS AGO
  • 00:00:31.290 --> 00:00:34.290
  • ARE NOW WIDELY ACCEPTED AND EVEN CELEBRATED,
  • 00:00:35.000 --> 00:00:39.070
  • AND IT SEEMS LIKE THINGS CAN HARDLY GET WORSE.
  • 00:00:39.080 --> 00:00:42.230
  • WELL, TODAY I'M GOING TO SHARE WHY
  • 00:00:42.240 --> 00:00:45.030
  • AMERICA'S RAPID SPIRITUAL DETERIORATION
  • 00:00:45.040 --> 00:00:48.080
  • WILL ULTIMATELY LEAD TO ITS DEMISE.
  • 00:00:48.090 --> 00:00:52.000
  • MY MESSAGE IS TITLED THE NEW MORAL (DIS)ORDER,
  • 00:00:52.010 --> 00:00:56.130
  • ON TODAY'S PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:56.140 --> 00:01:00.170
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:00.180 --> 00:01:08.040
  • [ANNOUNCER] WE MAY NOT KNOW THE DAY OR THE HOUR
  • 00:01:08.050 --> 00:01:09.290
  • WHEN CHRIST WILL RETURN,
  • 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:11.170
  • BUT THE BIBLE PAINTS A COLORFUL PICTURE OF THE END TIMES,
  • 00:01:11.180 --> 00:01:14.290
  • AND TO HELP YOU BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT'S AHEAD,
  • 00:01:15.000 --> 00:01:17.070
  • WE'RE PREPARED TO SEND YOU
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:18.210
  • PATHWAY TO VICTORY'S EXCLUSIVE BIBLE PROPHECY CHART.
  • 00:01:18.220 --> 00:01:22.090
  • THIS HELPFUL RESOURCE IS YOUR PERSONAL,
  • 00:01:22.100 --> 00:01:24.120
  • AT-A-GLANCE TIMELINE, LINKING SCRIPTURE WITH KEY EVENTS
  • 00:01:24.130 --> 00:01:27.240
  • THAT FORETELL THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:01:27.250 --> 00:01:30.050
  • A COPY OF THE BIBLE PROPHECY CHART IS OUR GIFT TO YOU,
  • 00:01:30.060 --> 00:01:32.290
  • SIMPLY FOR CONTACTING US TODAY AT PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:38.030
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:38.040 --> 00:01:45.080
  • PERHAPS YOU'VE SEEN THIS HEADLINE:
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:47.290
  • "MOST AMERICANS THINK COUNTRY HEADED IN WRONG DIRECTION."
  • 00:01:48.000 --> 00:01:54.130
  • DID YOU KNOW, A RECENT SURVEY REVEALED THAT 66% OF AMERICANS
  • 00:01:54.140 --> 00:01:58.180
  • AGREE WITH THAT SENTIMENT.
  • 00:01:58.190 --> 00:02:01.040
  • HOW IS IT THAT OUR NATION HAS GOTTEN SO FAR OFF TRACK?
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:07.160
  • BILLY GRAHAM PROVIDES AN INSIGHTFUL ANSWER.
  • 00:02:07.170 --> 00:02:11.020
  • HE WRITES, "THAT MORAL AND SPIRITUAL DECADENCE
  • 00:02:11.030 --> 00:02:16.130
  • "IS UPON US TODAY
  • 00:02:16.140 --> 00:02:18.050
  • "BECOMES EVIDENT AT EVERY TURN OF OUR DAILY NEWSPAPER.
  • 00:02:18.060 --> 00:02:22.110
  • "WE LIVE IN A DAY WHEN OLD VALUES ARE REJECTED
  • 00:02:22.120 --> 00:02:25.290
  • "AND THE SENSE OF SIGNIFICANCE AND PURPOSE
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:28.170
  • "HAS DISAPPEARED FROM MANY PEOPLE'S LIVES.
  • 00:02:28.180 --> 00:02:31.150
  • "YES, WE NEED TO CRY OUT TO BE SAVED, SAVED FROM OURSELVES,
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:37.270
  • "FOR IT IS THE SOUL OF A NATION AND A CULTURE THAT IS DYING.
  • 00:02:37.280 --> 00:02:43.150
  • "THE WORLD IS ON A MORAL BINGE SUCH AS WAS NOT KNOWN
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:46.130
  • "EVEN IN THE DAYS OF ROME.
  • 00:02:46.140 --> 00:02:48.180
  • "WE HAVE AT OUR FINGERTIPS EVERY PLEASURE
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:51.150
  • "THAT MAN IS CAPABLE OF ENJOYING,
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:54.020
  • "AND MAN HAS ABUSED EVERY GIFT GOD EVER GAVE HIM,
  • 00:02:54.030 --> 00:02:57.240
  • "INCLUDING SEX,
  • 00:02:57.250 --> 00:02:59.200
  • "UNTIL HE NO LONGER FINDS JOY AND SATISFACTION IN THEM."
  • 00:02:59.210 --> 00:03:06.000
  • DR. GRAHAM WROTE THOSE WORDS
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:08.010
  • IN HIS BOOK, WORLD AFLAME, THAT WAS PUBLISHED IN 1965,
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:15.290
  • 50 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:18.050
  • IF IT WAS TRUE THEN, HOW MUCH MORE TRUE IS IT NOW?
  • 00:03:18.060 --> 00:03:22.260
  • YOU KNOW, WE KEEP HEARING OVER AND OVER AGAIN
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:25.080
  • THAT OUR CULTURE IS EVOLVING.
  • 00:03:25.090 --> 00:03:28.070
  • WE'RE GETTING BETTER AND BETTER AS A CIVILIZATION,
  • 00:03:28.080 --> 00:03:32.040
  • BUT THE EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THE CONTRARY.
  • 00:03:32.050 --> 00:03:35.000
  • WE ARE DEVOLVING AS A NATION AND AS A WORLD,
  • 00:03:35.010 --> 00:03:39.210
  • AND IT IS THAT MORAL
  • 00:03:39.220 --> 00:03:41.060
  • AND SPIRITUAL DETERIORATION OF OUR WORLD
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:45.060
  • THAT IS THE FINAL SIGN OF THE COMING OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:03:45.070 --> 00:03:49.260
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT TODAY
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:51.220
  • AS WE CONTINUE OUR SERIES, COUNTDOWN TO THE APOCALYPSE.
  • 00:03:51.230 --> 00:03:55.180
  • WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:58.130
  • ABOUT THE MORAL DETERIORATION OF OUR WORLD,
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:01.090
  • AND HOW IT WILL BE A PRECURSOR
  • 00:04:01.100 --> 00:04:03.190
  • TO THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:04:03.200 --> 00:04:06.170
  • IS OUR CULTURE REALLY DEVOLVING?
  • 00:04:06.180 --> 00:04:09.040
  • WHAT EVIDENCE IS THERE, PASTOR?
  • 00:04:09.050 --> 00:04:10.290
  • IN 1947, A SOCIOLOGIST NAMED DR. CARLE ZIMMERMAN
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:15.090
  • WROTE A BOOK ENTITLED FAMILY AND CIVILIZATION.
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:19.000
  • HE IDENTIFIED 11 SYMPTOMS OF DECAY THAT WERE THE CAUSE
  • 00:04:19.010 --> 00:04:23.290
  • OF THE FALL OF THE ROMAN AND GREEK CIVILIZATIONS.
  • 00:04:24.000 --> 00:04:27.100
  • NOW, I WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO THESE 11 SIGNS
  • 00:04:27.110 --> 00:04:29.230
  • OR 11 SYMPTOMS THAT CAUSED THE DECAY OF THESE CIVILIZATIONS.
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:33.150
  • SEE IF ANY OF THEM SOUND FAMILIAR.
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:35.170
  • NUMBER ONE, NO-FAULT DIVORCE.
  • 00:04:35.180 --> 00:04:39.120
  • NUMBER TWO, WHAT HE CALLS THE BIRTH DEARTH,
  • 00:04:39.130 --> 00:04:42.290
  • INCREASED DISRESPECT FOR PARENTHOOD AND PARENTS.
  • 00:04:43.000 --> 00:04:47.010
  • NUMBER THREE, MEANINGLESS MARRIAGE RIGHTS AND CEREMONIES.
  • 00:04:47.020 --> 00:04:51.090
  • NUMBER FOUR, DEFAMATION OF PAST NATIONAL HEROES.
  • 00:04:51.100 --> 00:04:55.190
  • NUMBER FIVE, ACCEPTANCE OF ALTERNATIVE MARRIAGE FORMS.
  • 00:04:55.200 --> 00:05:00.150
  • NUMBER SIX, WIDESPREAD ATTITUDES OF FEMINISM,
  • 00:05:00.160 --> 00:05:03.140
  • NARCISSISM, AND HEDONISM.
  • 00:05:03.150 --> 00:05:06.000
  • NUMBER SEVEN, PROPAGATION OF ANTIFAMILY SENTIMENT.
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:10.200
  • NUMBER EIGHT, ACCEPTANCE OF MOST FORMS OF ADULTERY.
  • 00:05:10.210 --> 00:05:14.290
  • NUMBER NINE, REBELLIOUS CHILDREN.
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:17.240
  • NUMBER 10, INCREASED JUVENILE DELINQUENCY.
  • 00:05:17.250 --> 00:05:21.000
  • NUMBER 11, COMMON ACCEPTANCE
  • 00:05:21.010 --> 00:05:23.240
  • OF ALL FORMS OF SEXUAL PERVERSION.
  • 00:05:23.250 --> 00:05:27.260
  • NOW, DR. ZIMMERMAN WROTE THAT IN 1947,
  • 00:05:27.270 --> 00:05:31.080
  • CITING THE CAUSE OF THE DECLINE OF CIVILIZATIONS
  • 00:05:31.090 --> 00:05:35.060
  • THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.
  • 00:05:35.070 --> 00:05:38.170
  • WHAT IS THE SOLUTION TO OUR MORAL DETERIORATION?
  • 00:05:38.180 --> 00:05:44.140
  • HOW DO YOU REVERSE THIS DOWNWARD TREND?
  • 00:05:44.150 --> 00:05:46.260
  • IN A WORD, REPENTANCE.
  • 00:05:46.270 --> 00:05:50.230
  • THE WORD REPENT ACTUALLY IS A GREEK WORD, METANOEO.
  • 00:05:50.240 --> 00:05:54.210
  • IT MEANS A CHANGE OF MIND
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:57.070
  • THAT LEADS TO A CHANGE IN BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:05:57.080 --> 00:06:01.090
  • AS INDIVIDUALS AND AS A NATION,
  • 00:06:01.100 --> 00:06:03.140
  • WE NEED TO HAVE A CHANGE OF MIND
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.290
  • THAT LEADS TO A CHANGE OF DIRECTION IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:09.120
  • NO INDIVIDUAL, NO NATION, WILL BE BLESSED
  • 00:06:09.130 --> 00:06:13.120
  • THAT REBELS AGAINST GOD,
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:16.040
  • AND AS A NATION, WE ARE REBELLING AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:19.220
  • WE ARE SHAKING OUR FIST IN THE FACE OF GOD
  • 00:06:19.230 --> 00:06:23.090
  • IN TWO DISTINCT AREAS.
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:25.150
  • FIRST OF ALL, IN THE AREA OF WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT MARRIAGE.
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:31.260
  • LET'S LOOK AND SEE WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY SAYS ABOUT MARRIAGE
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:37.180
  • AND THE BEST PLACE TO START IS AT THE STARTING-PLACE.
  • 00:06:37.190 --> 00:06:39.130
  • THAT'S PROFOUND, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:41.040
  • LET'S GO BACK TO THE BOOK OF GENESIS,
  • 00:06:41.050 --> 00:06:44.020
  • AND I WANT YOU TO LOOK AT THE OPENING SENTENCE
  • 00:06:44.030 --> 00:06:46.230
  • IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:06:46.240 --> 00:06:48.080
  • "IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH."
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:54.000
  • IN THIS SIMPLE STATEMENT,
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:55.130
  • WE FIND THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTION, WHERE DID I COME FROM?
  • 00:06:55.140 --> 00:06:59.060
  • WHY AM I HERE?
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:00.240
  • WHERE AM I GOING?
  • 00:07:00.250 --> 00:07:02.090
  • AND WE FIND IN THESE OPENING CHAPTERS OF GENESIS
  • 00:07:02.100 --> 00:07:04.260
  • A DESCRIPTION OF HOW GOD CREATED EVERYTHING
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:08.140
  • THAT IS IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:07:08.150 --> 00:07:09.290
  • AND YOU'LL REMEMBER THAT ON THE SIXTH DAY OF CREATION,
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:13.160
  • HE PERFORMED HIS CROWNING WORK OF CREATION,
  • 00:07:13.170 --> 00:07:15.280
  • THE CREATION OF MANKIND.
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:17.090
  • LOOK AT VERSES 26 THROUGH 28.
  • 00:07:17.100 --> 00:07:19.250
  • "THEN GOD SAID,
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:21.220
  • "LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE, ACCORDING TO OUR LIKENESS;
  • 00:07:21.230 --> 00:07:25.180
  • "AND LET THEM RULE OVER THE FISH OF THE SEA
  • 00:07:25.190 --> 00:07:27.170
  • "AND OVER THE BIRDS OF THE SKY AND OVER THE CATTLE
  • 00:07:27.180 --> 00:07:29.280
  • "AND OVER ALL THE EARTH, AND OVER EVERY CREEPING THING
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:32.100
  • "THAT CREEPS ON THE EARTH.
  • 00:07:32.110 --> 00:07:33.240
  • "AND GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE,
  • 00:07:33.250 --> 00:07:37.080
  • "IN THE IMAGE OF GOD HE CREATED HIM;
  • 00:07:37.090 --> 00:07:39.200
  • "MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM.
  • 00:07:39.210 --> 00:07:42.070
  • "GOD BLESSED THEM; AND GOD SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:07:42.080 --> 00:07:45.000
  • "BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY, FILL THE EARTH, AND SUBDUE IT;
  • 00:07:45.010 --> 00:07:49.050
  • "AND RULE OVER THE FISH OF THE SEA
  • 00:07:49.060 --> 00:07:51.090
  • "AND OVER THE BIRDS OF THE SKY
  • 00:07:51.100 --> 00:07:53.000
  • "AND OVER EVERY THING THAT MOVES ON THE EARTH."
  • 00:07:53.010 --> 00:07:56.230
  • NOW, IN THIS PASSAGE WE FIND SEVERAL IMPORTANT PRINCIPLES
  • 00:07:56.240 --> 00:08:00.080
  • ABOUT GOD'S PURPOSE FROM THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:02.020
  • FIRST OF ALL, MAN IS CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:05.170
  • WOULD YOU WRITE THAT DOWN?
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:07.020
  • MAN IS CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:08:07.030 --> 00:08:09.070
  • LOOK AT VERSE 27.
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:10.140
  • "AND GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE,
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:13.270
  • "IN THE IMAGE OF GOD HE CREATED HIM."
  • 00:08:13.280 --> 00:08:16.270
  • THAT HEBREW WORD FOR IMAGE LITERALLY MEANS STATUE.
  • 00:08:16.280 --> 00:08:22.090
  • A STATUE IS A REPRESENTATION OF SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:28.130
  • YOU AND I HAVE BEEN CREATED AS STATUES, AS IMAGES
  • 00:08:28.140 --> 00:08:31.290
  • OF SOMEONE GREATER THAN US.
  • 00:08:32.000 --> 00:08:33.200
  • WE ARE CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:36.070
  • PRINCIPLE NUMBER TWO, GOD SEPARATED MANKIND
  • 00:08:36.080 --> 00:08:39.220
  • INTO TWO CATEGORIES: MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:08:39.230 --> 00:08:44.190
  • LOOK AT VERSE 27 AGAIN.
  • 00:08:44.200 --> 00:08:46.030
  • "HE CREATED HIM; MALE AND FEMALE."
  • 00:08:46.040 --> 00:08:51.200
  • THERE ARE TWO CATEGORIES OF CREATION, NOT THREE.
  • 00:08:51.210 --> 00:08:55.180
  • GOD DID NOT CREATE MANKIND MALE, FEMALE, AND QUESTION MARK.
  • 00:08:55.190 --> 00:09:02.080
  • IT IS MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:09:02.090 --> 00:09:05.170
  • NOW, I DON'T WANNA GET OFF INTO THE WEEDS THIS MORNING,
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:08.110
  • BUT WE UNDERSTAND THAT SINCE THE FALL, BECAUSE OF THE FALL,
  • 00:09:08.120 --> 00:09:12.200
  • THERE HAVE BEEN SOME GENETIC ABNORMALITIES THAT OCCUR.
  • 00:09:12.210 --> 00:09:16.260
  • YOU SEE IT IN PEOPLE THAT ARE BORN DEFORMED,
  • 00:09:16.270 --> 00:09:19.230
  • PEOPLE WITH HANDICAPS.
  • 00:09:19.240 --> 00:09:21.150
  • THERE ARE GENETIC DEFORMITIES THAT ARE PART OF THE FALL,
  • 00:09:21.160 --> 00:09:25.000
  • BUT DON'T MISS THE BIG POINT.
  • 00:09:25.010 --> 00:09:26.150
  • THE BIG POINT IS, GOD'S ORIGINAL PRAYER AND PURPOSE
  • 00:09:26.160 --> 00:09:29.030
  • IN CREATION IS TWO CATEGORIES OF HUMAN BEINGS,
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:32.090
  • MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:09:32.100 --> 00:09:34.200
  • AND IN THOSE TWO CATEGORIES, YOU FIND AN EQUALITY.
  • 00:09:34.210 --> 00:09:40.020
  • THE FACT THAT HE SAID HE CREATED THEM MALE AND FEMALE
  • 00:09:40.030 --> 00:09:43.100
  • MEANS THAT BOTH ARE EQUAL IN THE SIGHT OF GOD, BUT LISTEN,
  • 00:09:43.110 --> 00:09:48.050
  • EQUALITY DOESN'T MEAN SAMENESS.
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:51.230
  • GOD NEVER MEANT FOR MEN AND WOMEN TO BE THE SAME.
  • 00:09:51.240 --> 00:09:54.200
  • THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN FUNCTION,
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:57.170
  • EVEN THOUGH THERE'S AN EQUALITY IN STATURE BEFORE GOD,
  • 00:09:57.180 --> 00:10:01.240
  • AND YOU SEE THIS DIFFERENCE
  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:03.100
  • FROM THE VERY BEGINNING IN CREATION.
  • 00:10:03.110 --> 00:10:05.140
  • HE CREATED THEM MALE AND FEMALE,
  • 00:10:05.150 --> 00:10:08.110
  • AND THAT MEANS THERE'S A DIFFERENCE IN THE WAY WE ACT.
  • 00:10:08.120 --> 00:10:12.200
  • THERE'S A DIFFERENCE IN RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:10:12.210 --> 00:10:15.100
  • THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN HOW WE RELATE TO ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:10:15.110 --> 00:10:18.180
  • INCLUDING HOW WE RELATE TO ONE ANOTHER SEXUALLY,
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:22.210
  • AND THAT'S WHERE YOU FIND, IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:10:22.220 --> 00:10:24.280
  • AND WHY YOU FIND THE PROHIBITION
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:27.070
  • AGAINST HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:30.090
  • I WANT YOU TO WRITE DOWN SOME OF THESE VERSES.
  • 00:10:30.100 --> 00:10:32.070
  • PEOPLE WHO SAY, "WELL NOWHERE DOES THE BIBLE
  • 00:10:32.080 --> 00:10:34.060
  • "TALK ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY."
  • 00:10:34.070 --> 00:10:36.040
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:10:36.050 --> 00:10:37.240
  • LEVITICUS 18, VERSE 22.
  • 00:10:37.250 --> 00:10:40.050
  • "YOU," TALKING TO MEN, "SHALL NOT LIE WITH A MALE
  • 00:10:40.060 --> 00:10:44.130
  • "AS ONE LIES WITH A FEMALE; IT IS AN ABOMINATION."
  • 00:10:44.140 --> 00:10:50.050
  • LEVITICUS 20, VERSE 13.
  • 00:10:50.060 --> 00:10:51.160
  • "IF THERE IS A MAN WHO LIES WITH A MALE
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:54.040
  • "AS THOSE WHO LIE WITH A WOMAN,
  • 00:10:54.050 --> 00:10:56.040
  • "BOTH OF THEM HAVE COMMITTED A DETESTABLE ACT;
  • 00:10:56.050 --> 00:11:01.010
  • "THEY SHALL SURELY BE PUT TO DEATH.
  • 00:11:01.020 --> 00:11:03.230
  • "THEIR BLOODGUILTINESS IS UPON THEM."
  • 00:11:03.240 --> 00:11:08.220
  • COULD YOU BE ANY MORE CLEAN ABOUT WHAT GOD THINKS
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:11.090
  • OF THE HOMOSEXUAL ACT?
  • 00:11:11.100 --> 00:11:12.280
  • HE SAYS IT IS DETESTABLE.
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:15.280
  • HE SAYS IT IS AN ABOMINATION.
  • 00:11:15.290 --> 00:11:19.190
  • GOD'S WORD SAYS HOMOSEXUALITY IS UNNATURAL.
  • 00:11:19.200 --> 00:11:24.180
  • LITERALLY THAT MEANS IT IS AGAINST NATURE.
  • 00:11:24.190 --> 00:11:28.180
  • IT IS AGAINST THE LAWS OF GOD.
  • 00:11:28.190 --> 00:11:30.240
  • IT IS AGAINST THE NATURAL LAW OF GOD
  • 00:11:30.250 --> 00:11:33.000
  • AND THERE ARE SEVERE CONSEQUENCES
  • 00:11:33.010 --> 00:11:35.160
  • IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE FOR IT.
  • 00:11:35.170 --> 00:11:37.210
  • OR CONSIDER 1 CORINTHIANS 6:9 & 10.
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:41.120
  • PAUL SAID, "OR DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS
  • 00:11:41.130 --> 00:11:45.030
  • "SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD?"
  • 00:11:45.040 --> 00:11:48.030
  • WHO ARE THE UNRIGHTEOUS?
  • 00:11:48.040 --> 00:11:49.190
  • "DON'T BE DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATORS, NOR IDOLATERS,
  • 00:11:49.200 --> 00:11:54.010
  • "NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR HOMOSEXUALS,
  • 00:11:54.020 --> 00:11:57.250
  • "NOR THIEVES, NOR THE COVETOUS, NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS,
  • 00:11:57.260 --> 00:12:01.130
  • "NOR SWINDLERS, SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:12:01.140 --> 00:12:04.250
  • "BUT YOU WERE WASHED, YOU WERE COVERED WITH THE BLOOD.
  • 00:12:04.260 --> 00:12:08.170
  • "YOU WERE SANCTIFIED, YOU WERE FORGIVEN."
  • 00:12:08.180 --> 00:12:12.010
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THERE IS NO SIN
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:15.010
  • FROM WHICH YOU CAN'T BE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:18.050
  • HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT THE UNPARDONABLE SIN.
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:22.040
  • YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN OF HOMOSEXUALITY.
  • 00:12:22.050 --> 00:12:24.250
  • YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN OF ANY SIN BUT, GET THIS,
  • 00:12:24.260 --> 00:12:27.120
  • TO BE FORGIVEN OF A SIN, YOU FIRST MUST ADMIT
  • 00:12:27.130 --> 00:12:30.110
  • THAT YOU HAVE SINNED, AND WE HAVE TO ADMIT
  • 00:12:30.120 --> 00:12:34.080
  • WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS: HOMOSEXUALITY IS A SIN.
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:38.110
  • THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES.
  • 00:12:38.120 --> 00:12:40.130
  • THERE'S A PROHIBITION AGAINST HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:43.090
  • SECONDLY, THAT LEADS TO THERE IS CERTAINLY
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:45.090
  • A PROHIBITION AGAINST HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE.
  • 00:12:45.100 --> 00:12:48.210
  • JESUS DID ADDRESS THE MARRIAGE QUESTION.
  • 00:12:48.220 --> 00:12:52.020
  • HE SAID IT'S ONE MAN WITH ONE WOMAN FOR A LIFETIME.
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:56.090
  • THAT'S GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:58.070
  • JESUS AFFIRMED GOD'S PLAN, AND BY SETTING GOD'S STANDARD,
  • 00:12:58.080 --> 00:13:04.050
  • ONE MAN WITH ONE WOMAN FOR LIFE,
  • 00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:05.170
  • HE IS SAYING THAT ANY DEVIATION FROM THAT STANDARD,
  • 00:13:05.180 --> 00:13:09.180
  • NOT JUST GAY MARRIAGE BUT ANY DEVIATION,
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:13.030
  • ADULTERY, PREMARITAL SEX, UNBIBLICAL DIVORCE,
  • 00:13:13.040 --> 00:13:16.230
  • THOSE ARE ALL SINS BECAUSE THEY DON'T MEASURE UP
  • 00:13:16.240 --> 00:13:20.170
  • TO THE STANDARD, THE PERFECT STANDARD OF GOD.
  • 00:13:20.180 --> 00:13:23.230
  • YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE IS NOT A CAFETERIA,
  • 00:13:23.240 --> 00:13:27.180
  • WHERE YOU GET TO GO THROUGH THE LINE
  • 00:13:27.190 --> 00:13:29.010
  • AND PICK AND CHOOSE THOSE PARTS THAT YOU LIKE.
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:30.270
  • IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.
  • 00:13:30.280 --> 00:13:32.220
  • IF YOU'RE A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST,
  • 00:13:32.230 --> 00:13:34.060
  • YOU ACCEPT ALL OF CHRIST'S TEACHINGS.
  • 00:13:34.070 --> 00:13:37.080
  • OUR REBELLION AS A CULTURE AGAINST GOD
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:39.130
  • IS SEEN IN OUR ATTITUDE ABOUT MARRIAGE.
  • 00:13:39.140 --> 00:13:41.230
  • SECONDLY, IT'S SEEN IN WHAT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:13:41.240 --> 00:13:44.170
  • ABOUT THE SANCTITY OF LIFE.
  • 00:13:44.180 --> 00:13:47.030
  • LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS ISSUE, THE ISSUE OF ABORTION.
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:51.260
  • SINCE THE SUPREME COURT'S RULING IN 1973, ROE VS. WADE,
  • 00:13:51.270 --> 00:13:56.150
  • THAT LEGALIZED ABORTION FOR WOMEN, SINCE THAT TIME,
  • 00:13:56.160 --> 00:13:59.270
  • 54 MILLION CHILDREN HAVE BEEN BUTCHERED IN THE WOMB.
  • 00:13:59.280 --> 00:14:06.050
  • 54 MILLION CHILDREN HAVE BEEN MURDERED,
  • 00:14:06.060 --> 00:14:09.160
  • AND THAT NUMBER IS BEING ADDED TO EVERY YEAR
  • 00:14:09.170 --> 00:14:12.130
  • BY 1.3 MILLION CHILDREN WHO ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED.
  • 00:14:12.140 --> 00:14:17.080
  • GONE. THEY DON'T EXIST ANY MORE.
  • 00:14:17.090 --> 00:14:19.200
  • WIPED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH
  • 00:14:19.210 --> 00:14:22.020
  • BECAUSE OF OUR NATION'S REBELLION AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:26.230
  • HOW DOES GOD LOOK AT THAT?
  • 00:14:26.240 --> 00:14:29.130
  • WELL, LET'S SEE WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT THE UNBORN.
  • 00:14:29.140 --> 00:14:33.040
  • I WANT YOU TO WRITE DOWN SEVERAL KEY VERSES
  • 00:14:33.050 --> 00:14:36.270
  • THAT TALK ABOUT THE UNBORN.
  • 00:14:36.280 --> 00:14:38.080
  • PSALM 139, VERSES 13 TO 16.
  • 00:14:38.090 --> 00:14:41.120
  • THESE ARE THE VERSES THAT PROBABLY,
  • 00:14:41.130 --> 00:14:42.270
  • BETTER THAN ANY IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 00:14:42.280 --> 00:14:44.180
  • DESCRIBE HOW GOD VIEWS THE UNBORN CHILD.
  • 00:14:44.190 --> 00:14:47.270
  • DAVID SAID, "FOR THOU DIDST FORM MY INWARD PARTS;
  • 00:14:47.280 --> 00:14:51.260
  • "THOU DIDST WEAVE ME IN MY MOTHER'S WOMB.
  • 00:14:51.270 --> 00:14:55.140
  • "I WILL GIVE THANKS TO THEE,
  • 00:14:55.150 --> 00:14:57.010
  • "FOR I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE;
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:15:00.040
  • "WONDERFUL ARE THY WORKS, AND MY SOUL KNOWS IT VERY WELL.
  • 00:15:00.050 --> 00:15:03.260
  • "MY FRAME WAS NOT HIDDEN FROM THEE,
  • 00:15:03.270 --> 00:15:06.070
  • "WHEN I WAS MADE IN SECRET,
  • 00:15:06.080 --> 00:15:07.250
  • "AND SKILLFULLY WROUGHT IN THE DEPTHS OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:15:07.260 --> 00:15:12.070
  • "THINE EYES HAVE SEEN MY UNFORMED SUBSTANCE;
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:15.010
  • "AND IN THY BOOK THEY WERE ALL WRITTEN,
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:17.040
  • "THE DAYS THAT WERE ORDAINED FOR ME,
  • 00:15:17.050 --> 00:15:19.150
  • "WHEN AS YET THERE WAS NOT ONE OF THEM."
  • 00:15:19.160 --> 00:15:22.140
  • REMEMBER GOD'S WORD THROUGH JEREMIAH
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:24.100
  • IN JEREMIAH 1, VERSES FOUR AND FIVE.
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:26.160
  • "NOW THE WORD OF GOD CAME TO ME SAYING,
  • 00:15:26.170 --> 00:15:29.040
  • "BEFORE I FORMED YOU IN THE WOMB I KNEW YOU,
  • 00:15:29.050 --> 00:15:33.120
  • "AND BEFORE YOU WERE BORN I CONSECRATED YOU."
  • 00:15:33.130 --> 00:15:36.170
  • GOD HAD A RELATIONSHIP WITH JEREMIAH
  • 00:15:36.180 --> 00:15:38.270
  • BEFORE HE WAS EVER BORN, WHILE HE WAS STILL IN THE WOMB.
  • 00:15:38.280 --> 00:15:43.000
  • GOD VIEWS THE BABY IN THE WOMB
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:46.110
  • AS MUCH AS A HUMAN BEING, AS THE BABY OUTSIDE OF THE WOMB.
  • 00:15:46.120 --> 00:15:50.030
  • BOTH ARE CREATIONS OF GOD.
  • 00:15:50.040 --> 00:15:53.040
  • YOU CAN UNDERSTAND, THEN, WHY GOD ABSOLUTELY HATES
  • 00:15:53.050 --> 00:15:57.060
  • ANY VIOLENCE TOWARD CHILDREN.
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:59.240
  • DO YOU REMEMBER IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:15:59.250 --> 00:16:01.110
  • WHEN THE ISRAELITES CAME TO CANAAN, THE PROMISED LANE,
  • 00:16:01.120 --> 00:16:04.220
  • THAT WAS INHABITED BY CANAANITES?
  • 00:16:04.230 --> 00:16:06.170
  • THEY UNFORTUNATELY FELL INTO THE WAYS OF THE CANAANITES,
  • 00:16:06.180 --> 00:16:09.230
  • AND THEY BEGAN TO WORSHIP THE FALSE GOD MOLECH,
  • 00:16:09.240 --> 00:16:13.000
  • A GOD WHOM THE CANAANITES SAID REQUIRED THE SACRIFICE
  • 00:16:13.010 --> 00:16:16.290
  • OF CHILDREN ON THE ALTAR, BURNT SACRIFICES OF CHILDREN.
  • 00:16:17.000 --> 00:16:21.290
  • WHAT DID GOD THINK ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:24.050
  • WHAT DID HE THINK ABOUT HIS OWN PEOPLE
  • 00:16:24.060 --> 00:16:26.130
  • ENGAGING IN THAT HORRIFIC SACRIFICE?
  • 00:16:26.140 --> 00:16:29.250
  • IN JEREMIAH 32:35, IT SAYS, "AND THEY BUILT THE HIGH PLACES
  • 00:16:29.260 --> 00:16:33.270
  • "OF BAAL THAT ARE IN THE VALLEY OF BEN-HINNOM
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:36.050
  • "TO CAUSE THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:38.050
  • "TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE TO MOLECH,
  • 00:16:38.060 --> 00:16:41.130
  • "WHICH I HAD NOT COMMANDED THEM NOR HAD IT ENTERED MY MIND
  • 00:16:41.140 --> 00:16:47.180
  • "THAT THEY SHOULD DO THIS ABOMINATION."
  • 00:16:47.190 --> 00:16:50.070
  • GOD SAID, "WHEN I SAW THE ISRAELITES
  • 00:16:50.080 --> 00:16:52.150
  • "BURNING THEIR CHILDREN ALIVE, IT NEVER ENTERED INTO MY MIND
  • 00:16:52.160 --> 00:16:56.210
  • "THAT THEY WOULD DO SUCH A THING."
  • 00:16:56.220 --> 00:16:58.280
  • AND SO, IN VERSES 28 AND 29, GOD SAID TO HIS OWN PEOPLE,
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:03.200
  • HIS OWN NATION OF ISRAEL, "BECAUSE YOU ARE KILLING,
  • 00:17:03.210 --> 00:17:06.160
  • "SLAUGHTERING YOUR OWN CHILDREN,
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:08.010
  • "I'M GONNA RAISE UP THE FOREIGNERS TO COME
  • 00:17:08.020 --> 00:17:10.190
  • "AND INVADE YOUR CITY AND TO TAKE IT CAPTIVE,
  • 00:17:10.200 --> 00:17:13.120
  • "TO BURN IT TO THE GROUND."
  • 00:17:13.130 --> 00:17:14.270
  • NOW, FOLKS, IF GOD WILL DO THAT TO HIS OWN CHOSEN PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:14.280 --> 00:17:21.020
  • WHO DESTROY THE LIVES OF CHILDREN,
  • 00:17:21.030 --> 00:17:22.200
  • DO WE HAVE TO WONDER HOW GOD IS GOING TO DEAL
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:26.060
  • WITH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:28.120
  • A COUNTRY THAT NOT ONLY ALLOWS BUT IT CELEBRATES
  • 00:17:28.130 --> 00:17:31.160
  • THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE,
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:34.110
  • THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE TO MURDER OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:17:34.120 --> 00:17:39.090
  • IT IS AN ABOMINATION IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:43.160
  • YOU SAY, "WELL, WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS HAVE TO DO
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:45.040
  • "WITH BIBLE PROPHECY?"
  • 00:17:45.050 --> 00:17:46.200
  • HERE'S WHAT IT HAS TO DO WITH IT.
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:48.130
  • TURN OVER TO 2 TIMOTHY 3,
  • 00:17:48.140 --> 00:17:50.160
  • THE PASSAGE WE READ JUST A FEW MOMENTS AGO,
  • 00:17:50.170 --> 00:17:52.270
  • AND LOOK AT VERSE 1.
  • 00:17:52.280 --> 00:17:55.010
  • PAUL SAID TO TIMOTHY, "BUT MARK THIS," AND IN THE NIV,
  • 00:17:55.020 --> 00:17:59.130
  • IT SAYS, "THERE WILL BE TERRIBLE TIMES IN THE LAST DAYS."
  • 00:17:59.140 --> 00:18:04.120
  • THE NAS SAYS DIFFICULT TIMES, BUT IT SAYS IN THE NIV,
  • 00:18:04.130 --> 00:18:08.040
  • "THERE WILL BE TERRIBLE TIMES IN THE LAST DAYS."
  • 00:18:08.050 --> 00:18:12.020
  • NOW, THAT VERSE RAISES TWO QUESTIONS.
  • 00:18:12.030 --> 00:18:13.210
  • FIRST OF ALL, WHAT DID PAUL MEAN BY THE LAST DAYS?
  • 00:18:13.220 --> 00:18:16.030
  • THIS PHRASE REALLY REFERS TO THOSE YEARS, MONTHS, DAYS,
  • 00:18:16.040 --> 00:18:19.070
  • LEADING UP TO THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:18:19.080 --> 00:18:21.290
  • PAUL SAID TO TIMOTHY, "IT'S GOING TO GET WORSE
  • 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:23.290
  • "IN THE LAST DAYS,"
  • 00:18:24.000 --> 00:18:25.050
  • AND THE SECOND QUESTION IS,
  • 00:18:25.060 --> 00:18:26.200
  • WHAT DOES HE MEAN BY, IT'S GONNA BE TERRIBLE TIMES?
  • 00:18:26.210 --> 00:18:29.210
  • DIFFICULT TIMES?
  • 00:18:29.220 --> 00:18:30.260
  • LOOK, THAT WORD TERRIBLE
  • 00:18:30.270 --> 00:18:32.220
  • IS NOT JUST SOME BLAND PREACHER WORD.
  • 00:18:32.230 --> 00:18:35.180
  • THE WORD HAD A VERY SPECIFIC MEANING.
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:37.230
  • IN FACT, IT WAS ONLY USED TWICE IN THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:18:37.240 --> 00:18:40.200
  • ONE OF THOSE TIMES WAS IN MATTHEW 8:28,
  • 00:18:40.210 --> 00:18:44.120
  • WHEN IT WAS TALKING ABOUT THE STORY
  • 00:18:44.130 --> 00:18:47.060
  • OF THE DEMON-POSSESSED MEN AND THE GADARENES
  • 00:18:47.070 --> 00:18:50.010
  • WHO LIVED IN THE TOMBS, REMEMBER THEM,
  • 00:18:50.020 --> 00:18:52.230
  • AND THEY WERE UNCLOTHED, AND THEY WERE UNRESTRAINED.
  • 00:18:52.240 --> 00:18:55.200
  • THEY WERE VIOLENT MEN, COMMITTING UNSPEAKABLE ACTS.
  • 00:18:55.210 --> 00:19:01.270
  • THAT'S THE WORD USED FOR TERRIBLE.
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:03.040
  • LITERALLY, YOU COULD TRANSLATE IT,
  • 00:19:03.050 --> 00:19:05.150
  • "IT WILL BE TIMES WITHOUT MORAL RESTRAINT."
  • 00:19:05.160 --> 00:19:09.070
  • THAT'S WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:19:09.080 --> 00:19:10.230
  • JUST AS THOSE DEMON-POSSESSED MEN HAD NO RESTRAINT AT ALL,
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:15.060
  • SO IT WILL BE IN THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:19:15.070 --> 00:19:16.230
  • THERE WILL BE NO MORAL RESTRAINT.
  • 00:19:16.240 --> 00:19:20.100
  • YOU KNOW, ALMOST THREE DECADES AGO,
  • 00:19:20.110 --> 00:19:22.000
  • THE EVANGELICAL PHILOSOPHER CARL HENRY PREDICTED THAT
  • 00:19:22.010 --> 00:19:25.260
  • AS AMERICA INCREASINGLY LOST ITS JUDEO-CHRISTIAN HERITAGE,
  • 00:19:25.270 --> 00:19:30.080
  • PAGANISM WOULD GROW EVEN BOLDER,
  • 00:19:30.090 --> 00:19:33.090
  • AND HE PREDICTED THAT BY THE START OF THE 21ST CENTURY,
  • 00:19:33.100 --> 00:19:36.150
  • WE WOULD FACE, QUOTE, "NAKED NATURALISM AND RAW PAGANISM.
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:42.280
  • "THAT IS HUMANISM WITH THE PRETTY FACE RIPPED OFF,
  • 00:19:42.290 --> 00:19:45.230
  • "REVEALING THE ANGRY MONSTER UNDERNEATH IT."
  • 00:19:45.240 --> 00:19:49.170
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE SEEING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:19:49.180 --> 00:19:51.070
  • HUMANISM UNMASKED FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.
  • 00:19:51.080 --> 00:19:57.010
  • THESE ARE THE TIMES WE'RE LIVING IN
  • 00:19:57.020 --> 00:19:59.130
  • AND THEY ARE A SIGN THAT WE'RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:19:59.140 --> 00:20:03.090
  • BUT THERE'S EVEN A MORE DIRECT CONNECTION TO BIBLE PROPHECY
  • 00:20:03.100 --> 00:20:06.170
  • AND THE MORAL DETERIORATION OF OUR CULTURE.
  • 00:20:06.180 --> 00:20:09.000
  • REMEMBER IN THE LAST SEVEN YEARS OF THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:20:09.010 --> 00:20:12.070
  • THERE'LL BE A WORLD DICTATOR CALLED THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:20:12.080 --> 00:20:16.050
  • AND I WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO
  • 00:20:16.060 --> 00:20:17.110
  • ONE OF THE DESCRIPTIONS OF THE ANTICHRIST
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:19.150
  • FOUND IN DANIEL 7:25.
  • 00:20:19.160 --> 00:20:22.230
  • "AND HE WILL SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE MOST HIGH
  • 00:20:22.240 --> 00:20:26.140
  • "AND HE WILL WEAR DOWN THE SAINTS OF THE HIGHEST ONE,
  • 00:20:26.150 --> 00:20:30.070
  • "AND HE WILL INTEND TO MAKE ALTERATIONS
  • 00:20:30.080 --> 00:20:33.010
  • "IN TIMES AND IN THE LAW."
  • 00:20:33.020 --> 00:20:37.080
  • NOW, WE UNDERSTAND THE FIRST PART OF THIS.
  • 00:20:37.090 --> 00:20:39.070
  • IN THE LAST DAYS,
  • 00:20:39.080 --> 00:20:40.140
  • THE ANTICHRIST IS GONNA SPEAK OUT AGAINST GOD,
  • 00:20:40.150 --> 00:20:43.160
  • AND HE'S GONNA SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF GOD.
  • 00:20:43.170 --> 00:20:45.250
  • HE'S GOING TO ATTEMPT TO WEAR THEM DOWN.
  • 00:20:45.260 --> 00:20:49.000
  • BUT WHAT DOES HE MEAN WHEN HE SAYS HE WILL ALSO
  • 00:20:49.010 --> 00:20:51.060
  • TRY TO MAKE ALTERATIONS IN TIMES AND IN THE LAW?
  • 00:20:51.070 --> 00:20:56.030
  • HE'S SAYING THAT THIS FINAL WORLD DICTATOR
  • 00:20:56.040 --> 00:20:59.030
  • WILL SEEK TO CHANGE THE MOST BASIC LAWS OF HUMANITY,
  • 00:20:59.040 --> 00:21:05.090
  • AND WE'RE SEEING THAT HAPPEN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:21:05.100 --> 00:21:08.200
  • CULTURE MAY CHANGE, BUT THE WORD OF GOD NEVER CHANGES.

  • IN HEAVEN FOR EVER, SAYS THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:21:15.190 --> 00:21:21.090
  • THIS IS WHAT PAUL WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE SAID TO TIMOTHY,
  • 00:21:21.100 --> 00:21:24.080
  • "GET READY, GET READY.
  • 00:21:24.090 --> 00:21:26.150
  • "IN THE LAST DAYS, THERE WILL BE TERRIBLE TIMES,
  • 00:21:26.160 --> 00:21:29.200
  • "TIMES WITHOUT ANY MORAL RESTRAINT."
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:33.230
  • BUT WITH THAT PREDICTION IS ALSO A GREAT HOPE.
  • 00:21:33.240 --> 00:21:37.180
  • ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:21:37.190 --> 00:21:39.010
