  • OF DALLAS, TEXAS, THIS IS PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:08.290 --> 00:00:12.030
  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:12.040 --> 00:00:14.170
  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS, AND WELCOME AGAIN
  • 00:00:14.180 --> 00:00:17.040
  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:17.050 --> 00:00:19.080
  • EVERY PERSON HAS AN IMPORTANT ROLE TO PLAY.
  • 00:00:19.090 --> 00:00:22.150
  • MAYBE YOU'RE A STUDENT, A PARENT, AN EMPLOYEE, OR A BOSS.
  • 00:00:22.160 --> 00:00:27.020
  • MOST LIKELY YOU'RE JUGGLING MULTIPLE RESPONSIBILITIES
  • 00:00:27.030 --> 00:00:30.110
  • AT ONCE, BUT KNOWING YOUR JOB IS NOT THE SAME THING
  • 00:00:30.120 --> 00:00:34.090
  • AS KNOWING YOUR PURPOSE.
  • 00:00:34.100 --> 00:00:35.290
  • SO TODAY WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT A 24-HOUR PERIOD IN THE LIFE
  • 00:00:36.000 --> 00:00:40.120
  • OF JESUS IN ORDER TO DISCOVER OUR OWN GOD-GIVEN MISSION.
  • 00:00:40.130 --> 00:00:45.160
  • MY MESSAGE IS TITLED, "24" ON TODAY'S EDITION
  • 00:00:45.170 --> 00:00:49.250
  • OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:49.260 --> 00:00:52.040
  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:52.050 --> 00:00:59.070
  • [ANNOUNCER] PEOPLE WHO INVEST THEIR LIVES
  • 00:00:59.080 --> 00:01:00.240
  • IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD DON'T LOOK BACK WITH REGRET.
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:03.140
  • IN FACT, THEIR IMPACT EXTENDS FAR BEYOND THEIR OWN LIFETIME.
  • 00:01:03.150 --> 00:01:07.220
  • IN THIS SPIRIT, SOME FRIENDS OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY
  • 00:01:07.230 --> 00:01:10.100
  • HAVE BANDED TOGETHER AND SET ASIDE A GIFT OF $920.000
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:14.200
  • WITH THE INTENTION OF MOTIVATING YOU
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:16.110
  • TO GIVE FROM YOUR RESOURCES AS WELL.
  • 00:01:16.120 --> 00:01:18.180
  • AS YOU DO, EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL BE MATCHED
  • 00:01:18.190 --> 00:01:21.110
  • AND THEREFORE DOUBLED UNTIL DECEMBER 31ST.
  • 00:01:21.120 --> 00:01:24.110
  • THANK YOU FOR GIVING GENEROUSLY
  • 00:01:24.120 --> 00:01:25.260
  • TOWARD THE COURAGEOUS 2020 MATCHING CHALLENGE.
  • 00:01:25.270 --> 00:01:29.250
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:29.260 --> 00:01:36.280
  • EVERY NOW AND THEN, I'LL HAVE A SERMON ILLUSTRATION
  • 00:01:36.290 --> 00:01:39.220
  • THAT I THINK IS JUST GOING TO BE GREAT
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:44.000
  • AND IT DOESN'T QUITE WORK OUT THE WAY I PLAN.
  • 00:01:44.010 --> 00:01:47.060
  • IN FACT, SOMETIMES IT BACKFIRES.
  • 00:01:47.070 --> 00:01:50.130
  • THAT HAPPENED A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO.
  • 00:01:50.140 --> 00:01:52.160
  • I WAS GETTING READY TO PREPARE
  • 00:01:52.170 --> 00:01:54.020
  • TO PREACH A MESSAGE ON THE IMPORTANCE
  • 00:01:54.030 --> 00:01:56.140
  • OF FINDING YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE,
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:59.190
  • THAT ALL OF US HAVE A PURPOSE IN LIFE
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:02.140
  • AND HOW WE NEED TO DISCOVER GOD'S GIVEN PURPOSE.
  • 00:02:02.150 --> 00:02:05.070
  • AND SO THE WEEK BEFORE THE MESSAGE
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:08.180
  • I HAD AN INCIDENT, THE THOUGHT,
  • 00:02:08.190 --> 00:02:09.260
  • MAN, THIS GONNA BE A GREAT ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:02:09.270 --> 00:02:11.180
  • AMY AND I, THE WEEK BEFORE, WE WERE TRAVELING TO FLORIDA
  • 00:02:11.190 --> 00:02:14.010
  • FOR A PASTOR'S CONFERENCE.
  • 00:02:14.020 --> 00:02:15.250
  • WHEN WE GOT TO DFW AIRPORT, WE NOTICED
  • 00:02:15.260 --> 00:02:18.010
  • THAT AT ALMOST EVERY DEPARTURE GATE THERE WAS A GROUP
  • 00:02:18.020 --> 00:02:21.200
  • OF WOMEN ALL DRESSED ALIKE IN PURPLE
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:25.030
  • AND WEARING THESE FUNNY RED HATS.
  • 00:02:25.040 --> 00:02:27.240
  • -(CONGREGANTS LAUGH) -AND SURE ENOUGH
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:29.170
  • WHEN WE GOT ON OUR PLANE, THERE WAS A WHOLE GROUP
  • 00:02:29.180 --> 00:02:31.050
  • OF THESE WOMEN SITTING AT THE BACK OF THE PLANE.
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:33.210
  • AND THE WHOLE PLANE, THEY WERE WHOOPING AND HOLLERING,
  • 00:02:33.220 --> 00:02:36.150
  • AND OBVIOUSLY HAD SPENT TOO MUCH TIME AT THE AIRPORT BAR,
  • 00:02:36.160 --> 00:02:39.170
  • -BUT THAT'S ANOTHER STORY. -(CONGREGANTS LAUGH)
  • 00:02:39.180 --> 00:02:41.140
  • ONE OF THOSE LADIES HAD GOTTEN SEPARATED FROM HER GROUP
  • 00:02:41.150 --> 00:02:44.020
  • AND SO SHE WAS SEATED NEXT TO US.
  • 00:02:44.030 --> 00:02:46.160
  • AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY IDENTIFICATION ON THEM,
  • 00:02:46.170 --> 00:02:48.150
  • SO I SAID TO THIS LADY, JUST MAKING CONVERSATION,
  • 00:02:48.160 --> 00:02:50.190
  • I SAID, "TELL ME ABOUT YOUR ORGANIZATION."
  • 00:02:50.200 --> 00:02:54.160
  • SHE SAID, "WELL, WE'RE NOT AN ORGANIZATION,
  • 00:02:54.170 --> 00:02:56.110
  • -"WE'RE A DISORGANIZATION." -(CONGREGANTS LAUGH)
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:03:00.160
  • I SAID, "WELL, OKAY, WELL WHAT'S THE PURPOSE
  • 00:03:00.170 --> 00:03:02.250
  • "OF YOUR DISORGANIZATION?"
  • 00:03:02.260 --> 00:03:05.250
  • SHE SAID, "WELL, WE CALL OURSELVES THE RED HATS,
  • 00:03:05.260 --> 00:03:09.010
  • "AND IT'S FOR WOMEN WHO ARE 50 AND OLDER,
  • 00:03:09.020 --> 00:03:11.030
  • "AND WE HAVE NO OTHER PURPOSE
  • 00:03:11.040 --> 00:03:12.180
  • "THAN TO HAVE A GOOD TIME IN LIFE, THAT'S WHAT WE DO."
  • 00:03:12.190 --> 00:03:16.210
  • AND SO I THOUGHT, WELL, THERE'S A GREAT ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:03:16.220 --> 00:03:19.040
  • SO THE NEXT SUNDAY I JUST SAID, IN KIND OF A HUMOROUS WAY
  • 00:03:19.050 --> 00:03:22.020
  • TO MY CONGREGATION, "NOW THERE'S A GREAT ILLUSTRATION
  • 00:03:22.030 --> 00:03:24.260
  • "OF THE UN-PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE."
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:27.020
  • (CONGREGANTS LAUGH)
  • 00:03:27.030 --> 00:03:29.210
  • I DIDN'T REALIZE UP UNTIL THAT MOMENT HOW MANY RED HATS
  • 00:03:29.220 --> 00:03:32.210
  • WERE MEMBERS OF MY CHURCH AT THAT MOMENT.
  • 00:03:32.220 --> 00:03:35.060
  • -(CONGREGANTS LAUGHING) -THEY HAD BEEN FLYING
  • 00:03:35.070 --> 00:03:36.270
  • UNDER THE RADAR.
  • 00:03:36.280 --> 00:03:38.090
  • BELIEVE ME, I HEARD FROM THEM THE NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:41.150
  • THEY DIDN'T APPRECIATE IT.
  • 00:03:41.160 --> 00:03:43.050
  • AND NOT ONLY THAT, APPARENTLY WORD BEGAN
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:46.040
  • TO SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE 20.000 CHAPTERS
  • 00:03:46.050 --> 00:03:48.240
  • OF THE RED HATS AROUND AMERICA
  • 00:03:48.250 --> 00:03:51.040
  • THAT THIS PASTOR IN WICHITA FALLS
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:53.060
  • HAD SAID SOMETHING NOT VERY NICE ABOUT THE RED HATS.
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:56.110
  • NOT ONLY WAS I BARRAGED BY LETTERS,
  • 00:03:56.120 --> 00:03:59.040
  • BUT FOR THE NEXT YEAR, LITERALLY,
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:01.170
  • EVERY SUNDAY I WOULD LOOK OUT IN THE CONGREGATION
  • 00:04:01.180 --> 00:04:04.130
  • AND SEE A WHOLE GROUP OF RED HATS THERE.
  • 00:04:04.140 --> 00:04:07.160
  • ANYTIME THEY TRAVELED THROUGH WICHITA FALLS
  • 00:04:07.170 --> 00:04:09.270
  • THEY WOULD COME BY TO HARASS THE PASTOR
  • 00:04:09.280 --> 00:04:11.210
  • OF THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, AND THEY WOULD SIT THERE
  • 00:04:11.220 --> 00:04:14.140
  • AND GLARE AT ME THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MESSAGE.
  • 00:04:14.150 --> 00:04:17.160
  • WELL, FINALLY, I MADE MY AMENDS WITH THE RED HATS.
  • 00:04:17.170 --> 00:04:20.050
  • THEY CONTINUE TO COME, BUT WE WOULD HAVE A GOOD TIME.
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:22.240
  • AND AFTER THE SERVICE I'D HAVE MY PICTURE TAKEN WITH THEM.
  • 00:04:22.250 --> 00:04:26.140
  • SOMETIMES I'D PUT ON THE RED HAT MYSELF
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:28.260
  • SO THEY COULD HAVE THEIR PICTURE TAKEN WITH ME.
  • 00:04:28.270 --> 00:04:31.200
  • AND NOW IN MY OFFICE, I HAVE A WHOLE COLLECTION
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:34.120
  • OF RED HAT FIGURINES THAT THEY HAVE SENT ME
  • 00:04:34.130 --> 00:04:36.250
  • FROM EVERY PART OF THE COUNTRY
  • 00:04:36.260 --> 00:04:38.190
  • TO REMIND ME WHAT A GREAT GROUP THEY ARE.
  • 00:04:38.200 --> 00:04:41.040
  • SO LET ME SAY AT THE BEGINNING, I LOVE THE RED HATS!
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:44.190
  • -I LOVE RED HATS! -(CONGREGANTS CLAPPING)
  • 00:04:44.200 --> 00:04:46.280
  • THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH RED HATS.
  • 00:04:46.290 --> 00:04:48.180
  • (CONGREGANTS LAUGH)
  • 00:04:48.190 --> 00:04:50.210
  • THE FACT IS, THERE REALLY ISN'T ANYTHING WRONG
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:52.190
  • WITH HAVING FUN IN LIFE, EVEN THE WORD OF GOD SAYS THAT.
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:56.040
  • REMEMBER IN ECCLESIASTES, CHAPTER TWO,
  • 00:04:56.050 --> 00:04:57.270
  • SOLOMON SAID: FOR WHAT IS BETTER FOR A MAN
  • 00:04:57.280 --> 00:05:01.080
  • TO EAT AND DRINK AND SAY THAT HIS LABOR IS GOOD?
  • 00:05:01.090 --> 00:05:04.050
  • FOR WHO CAN EAT AND DRINK AND HAVE ENJOYMENT WITHOUT GOD?
  • 00:05:04.060 --> 00:05:09.250
  • WE ALL OUGHTA HAVE FUN,
  • 00:05:09.260 --> 00:05:12.190
  • BUT THAT SHOULDN'T BE THE DRIVING FORCE OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:12.200 --> 00:05:15.150
  • GOD HAS CREATED US FOR A BIGGER PURPOSE
  • 00:05:15.160 --> 00:05:19.120
  • THAN JUST HAVING FUN.
  • 00:05:19.130 --> 00:05:21.180
  • AND WHAT IS THAT PURPOSE?
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.180
  • WELL, IF WE'RE A CHRISTIAN, GOD HAS CALLED US
  • 00:05:23.190 --> 00:05:26.080
  • TO THE SAME PURPOSE OF HIS SON.
  • 00:05:26.090 --> 00:05:28.160
  • HIS SON CAME TO SEEK AND TO SAVE THOSE WHO WERE LOST.
  • 00:05:28.170 --> 00:05:33.040
  • AND IF YOU'RE REALLY A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:35.290
  • THE REASON GOD HAS LEFT YOU AND ME HERE
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:38.020
  • IS TO EXPAND THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:42.050
  • THE KINGDOM MEANS THE RULE OF GOD.
  • 00:05:42.060 --> 00:05:44.130
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL UNDERSTOOD THAT PURPOSE
  • 00:05:44.140 --> 00:05:47.050
  • IN COLOSSIANS 1:28 AND 29.
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:49.080
  • AND HE SAID: AND WE PROCLAIM CHRIST, ADMONISHING EVERY MAN
  • 00:05:49.090 --> 00:05:54.050
  • AND TEACHING EVERY MAN WITH ALL WISDOM
  • 00:05:54.060 --> 00:05:57.030
  • THAT WE MIGHT PRESENT EVERY MAN COMPLETE IN CHRIST.
  • 00:05:57.040 --> 00:06:01.040
  • AND FOR THIS PURPOSE, HE SAID, I ALSO LABOR
  • 00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:05.290
  • STRIVING ACCORDING TO HIS POWER
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:08.290
  • WHICH MIGHTILY WORKS WITHIN ME.
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:12.080
  • SOME OF YOU MAY BE THINKING, WELL, THIS IDEA
  • 00:06:12.090 --> 00:06:13.250
  • OF MAKING DISCIPLES, WINNING PEOPLE TO CHRIST,
  • 00:06:13.260 --> 00:06:16.210
  • HELPING THEM GROW IN THEIR FAITH,
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:18.010
  • THAT'S WHAT WE PAY YOU FOR, PASTOR.
  • 00:06:18.020 --> 00:06:20.210
  • I MEAN, YOU'RE A PAID PROFESSIONAL.
  • 00:06:20.220 --> 00:06:21.260
  • YOU GET YOUR PAYCHECK FROM THE CHURCH.
  • 00:06:21.270 --> 00:06:23.190
  • WE PAY PASTORS AND MISSIONARIES TO DO THAT FOR US.
  • 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:27.030
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT PAUL SAID.
  • 00:06:27.040 --> 00:06:28.170
  • REMEMBER, A LOT OF PAUL'S LIFE, HE WAS A LAYMAN.
  • 00:06:28.180 --> 00:06:31.270
  • HE EARNED HIS LIVING BY MAKING TENTS.
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:35.140
  • BUT EVEN THOUGH HIS LIVING WAS MADE MY MAKING TENTS,
  • 00:06:35.150 --> 00:06:38.120
  • HIS REAL CALLING WAS MAKING DISCIPLES.
  • 00:06:38.130 --> 00:06:41.110
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT WHERE YOU GET YOUR PAYCHECK FROM.
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:43.250
  • WE HAVE ALL BEEN CALLED TO THE SAME MINISTRY
  • 00:06:43.260 --> 00:06:47.250
  • OF WINNING PEOPLE TO CHRIST AND HELPING THEM GROW
  • 00:06:47.260 --> 00:06:50.290
  • IN THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:52.040
  • THAT'S THE ONLY REASON GOD LEFT US HERE
  • 00:06:52.050 --> 00:06:53.200
  • INSTEAD OF TAKING US TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:06:53.210 --> 00:06:55.230
  • GOD HAS CALLED ALL OF US TO THAT SINGULAR PURPOSE.
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:07:00.090
  • BUT I ALSO REALIZE THERE'RE MANY OF YOU HERE,
  • 00:07:00.100 --> 00:07:02.000
  • MANY OF YOU WATCHING ON PATHWAY TO VICTORY,
  • 00:07:02.010 --> 00:07:03.290
  • AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT CALLING.
  • 00:07:04.000 --> 00:07:06.070
  • YOU REALLY WANNA HAVE A PURPOSE-FILLED LIFE.
  • 00:07:06.080 --> 00:07:09.250
  • YOU WANNA EXPERIENCE GOD'S SUPERNATURAL POWER
  • 00:07:09.260 --> 00:07:12.230
  • AND KNOW THAT YOU'RE BEING USED
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:14.080
  • FOR A PURPOSE GREATER THAN YOURSELF.
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:16.020
  • THE QUESTION IS, YOU MAY BE SAYING,
  • 00:07:16.030 --> 00:07:17.190
  • "HOW CAN I DO THAT MORE EFFECTIVELY?
  • 00:07:17.200 --> 00:07:19.260
  • HOW CAN I MAKE MY LIFE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:07:19.270 --> 00:07:22.260
  • IN OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES?
  • 00:07:22.270 --> 00:07:24.230
  • WELL, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THIS MORNING.
  • 00:07:24.240 --> 00:07:28.000
  • THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT
  • 00:07:28.010 --> 00:07:29.140
  • AS WE UNDERSTAND HOW TO LIVE OUT OUR PURPOSE IN LIFE.
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:35.140
  • THERE'S A REASON THAT GOD GAVE US FOUR GOSPELS:
  • 00:07:35.150 --> 00:07:39.110
  • MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN.
  • 00:07:39.120 --> 00:07:41.150
  • THE REASON HE GAVE US THESE FOUR GOSPELS
  • 00:07:41.160 --> 00:07:43.200
  • WAS NOT JUST TO TELL US ABOUT THE DEATH OF JESUS
  • 00:07:43.210 --> 00:07:46.160
  • FOR OUR SINS, BUT TO SHARE SOMETHING
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:48.130
  • ABOUT THE LIFE OF JESUS.
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:49.180
  • TO BE A DISCIPLE OF CHRIST MEANS
  • 00:07:49.190 --> 00:07:51.140
  • TO IMITATE THE LIFE OF JESUS.
  • 00:07:51.150 --> 00:07:54.050
  • AND WHAT I'M SAYING TO YOU THIS MORNING
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:55.210
  • IS IF YOU REALLY WANNA KNOW HOW TO LIVE A POWER-PACKED,
  • 00:07:55.220 --> 00:07:58.260
  • PURPOSE-FILLED LIFE, JUST LOOK AT WHAT JESUS DID.
  • 00:07:58.270 --> 00:08:03.090
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO THIS MORNING.
  • 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:05.080
  • WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT FOUR COMPONENTS
  • 00:08:05.090 --> 00:08:07.140
  • OF JESUS' LIFE THAT MADE HIM SUCH AN EFFECTIVE PERSON
  • 00:08:07.150 --> 00:08:11.130
  • DURING THE TIME HE WAS ON EARTH.
  • 00:08:11.140 --> 00:08:13.050
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES, I WANT YOU TO TURN
  • 00:08:13.060 --> 00:08:14.260
  • TO LUKE CHAPTER FOUR, LUKE CHAPTER FOUR.
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:18.240
  • NOW I HAVE TO CONFESS I STILL LIKE TO WATCH RERUNS
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:22.130
  • OF THE OLD TV SHOW 24.
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:24.280
  • HOW MANY OF YOU REMEMBER 24?
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:26.210
  • YOU REMEMBER COUNTER-TERRORIST JACK BAUER?
  • 00:08:26.220 --> 00:08:30.110
  • AND THE REASON IT WAS CALLED 24
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:33.060
  • WAS EVERY SEASON HAD 24 EPISODES,
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:36.290
  • AND EACH EPISODE REPRESENTED ONE HOUR IN JACK BAUER'S LIFE.
  • 00:08:37.000 --> 00:08:41.030
  • THE WHOLE SEASON WAS JUST ONE DAY IN HIS LIFE, 24 HOURS.
  • 00:08:41.040 --> 00:08:45.080
  • IT WAS TOLD IN REAL TIME.
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:47.090
  • BUT THAT WASN'T ORIGINAL.
  • 00:08:47.100 --> 00:08:48.150
  • ACTUALLY, LUKE USED THE SAME FORMAT
  • 00:08:48.160 --> 00:08:50.170
  • IN THE PASSAGE WE'RE LOOKING AT TODAY.
  • 00:08:50.180 --> 00:08:52.240
  • IN THIS PASSAGE, WE'RE GONNA DISCOVER WHAT 24 HOURS
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:55.260
  • IN THE LIFE OF JESUS LOOKED LIKE.
  • 00:08:55.270 --> 00:08:57.210
  • AND I WANT YOU TO NOTICE IN THOSE 24 HOURS OF HIS LIFE
  • 00:08:57.220 --> 00:09:00.270
  • HOW HE BALANCED HIS LIFE WITH FOUR DIFFERENT KEY COMPONENTS
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:05.050
  • THAT MADE HIM SO EFFECTIVE.
  • 00:09:05.060 --> 00:09:07.180
  • NUMBER ONE, HIS LIFE WAS MARKED BY AUTHORITATIVE TEACHING.
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:14.010
  • AUTHORITATIVE TEACHING WAS CENTER TO HIS MINISTRY.
  • 00:09:14.020 --> 00:09:16.240
  • LOOK AT LUKE 4:31: AND HE CAME DOWN TO CAPERNAUM.
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:19.170
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN HE CAME DOWN TO CAPERNAUM?
  • 00:09:19.180 --> 00:09:21.210
  • REMEMBER, HE'D BEEN IN NAZARETH, HIS HOME TOWN,
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:23.280
  • MINISTERING THERE IN THE SYNAGOGUE.
  • 00:09:23.290 --> 00:09:25.180
  • THEN HE TRAVELED 20 MILES TO CAPERNAUM,
  • 00:09:25.190 --> 00:09:28.120
  • A CITY OF GALILEE, AND HE WAS TEACHING THEM ON THE SABBATH.
  • 00:09:28.130 --> 00:09:32.020
  • CAPERNAUM BECAME HIS HOME BASE FOR HIS MINISTRY.
  • 00:09:32.030 --> 00:09:34.220
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT PART OF HIS MINISTRY
  • 00:09:34.230 --> 00:09:37.060
  • WAS REGULARLY TEACHING IN THE SYNAGOGUE.
  • 00:09:37.070 --> 00:09:41.020
  • THE GREEK TENSE HERE INDICATES
  • 00:09:41.030 --> 00:09:42.230
  • THIS WASN'T A ONE-TIME ACTION.
  • 00:09:42.240 --> 00:09:44.210
  • CENTRAL TO JESUS' LIFE WAS TEACHING,
  • 00:09:44.220 --> 00:09:48.020
  • AND TEACHING THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:09:48.030 --> 00:09:50.290
  • JESUS BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:53.220
  • HE BELIEVED, LIKE WE READ THIS MORNING IN HEBREWS 4:12,
  • 00:09:53.230 --> 00:09:57.010
  • THAT THE WORD OF GOD IS ALIVE, IT'S ACTIVE,
  • 00:09:57.020 --> 00:09:59.140
  • IT IS SHARPER THAN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD.
  • 00:09:59.150 --> 00:10:01.260
  • JAMES 1:21 SAYS THAT IT IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:10:01.270 --> 00:10:05.270
  • IMPLANTED IN A PERSON'S LIFE THAT IS ABLE TO SAVE HIS SOUL.
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:10.210
  • AND IF YOU AND I ARE GONNA BE SERIOUS
  • 00:10:10.220 --> 00:10:12.070
  • ABOUT REALLY HELPING PEOPLE CHANGE THEIR LIVES,
  • 00:10:12.080 --> 00:10:14.290
  • TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES, THEN THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:10:15.000 --> 00:10:17.270
  • IS GOING TO BE CENTRAL IN OUR MINISTRY.
  • 00:10:17.280 --> 00:10:21.050
  • PEOPLE ARE NEVER GONNA BE CHANGED BY YOUR
  • 00:10:21.060 --> 00:10:24.010
  • WORDS OR MY WORDS. THEY'RE CHANGED BY GOD'S WORDS.
  • 00:10:24.020 --> 00:10:27.200
  • LET ME ILLUSTRATE THAT FOR YOU.
  • 00:10:27.210 --> 00:10:29.130
  • WHO IS THE MOST POWERFUL PERSON IN THE WORLD?
  • 00:10:29.140 --> 00:10:32.260
  • WHO IS HE?
  • 00:10:32.270 --> 00:10:35.040
  • MOST PEOPLE WOULD AGREE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:37.130
  • IS THE MOST POWERFUL PERSON IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:10:37.140 --> 00:10:41.070
  • AND YET WHO HERE TODAY COULD STAND UP
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:44.170
  • AND RECITE ONE SENTENCE FROM THE LAST STATE
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:48.180
  • OF THE UNION ADDRESS BY THE PRESIDENT,
  • 00:10:48.190 --> 00:10:52.000
  • OR NOT EVEN THIS PAST PRESIDENT, THE PRESIDENT BEFORE HIM,
  • 00:10:52.010 --> 00:10:54.190
  • OR THE PRESIDENT BEFORE HIM?
  • 00:10:54.200 --> 00:10:56.230
  • ISN'T IT FUNNY?
  • 00:10:56.240 --> 00:10:57.210
  • WE CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER THE WORDS
  • 00:10:57.220 --> 00:10:59.040
  • OF THE MOST POWERFUL PERSON IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:10:59.050 --> 00:11:01.160
  • IF THAT'S TRUE (CHUCKLES),
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:03.120
  • HOW MANY OF YOUR WORDS WILL PEOPLE REMEMBER,
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:06.140
  • OR HOW MANY OF MY WORDS?
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:07.200
  • PEOPLE AREN'T CHANGED BY OUR WORDS,
  • 00:11:07.210 --> 00:11:09.290
  • BUT THEY ARE CHANGED BY THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:11:10.000 --> 00:11:12.130
  • JESUS UNDERSTOOD THAT.
  • 00:11:12.140 --> 00:11:13.270
  • LOOK AT VERSE 32: AND THEY WERE AMAZED AT JESUS' TEACHING
  • 00:11:13.280 --> 00:11:20.010
  • FOR HIS MESSAGE WAS WITH AUTHORITY.
  • 00:11:20.020 --> 00:11:24.060
  • WHAT IS IT THAT GAVE JESUS' MESSAGE AUTHORITY IMPACT?
  • 00:11:24.070 --> 00:11:28.060
  • IT WASN'T HIS CHARISMA.
  • 00:11:28.070 --> 00:11:29.240
  • IT WASN'T HIS BOOMING VOICE.
  • 00:11:29.250 --> 00:11:32.030
  • NO, THERE'RE THREE CHARACTERISTICS
  • 00:11:32.040 --> 00:11:33.270
  • THAT MADE JESUS' TEACHING IMPACTFUL.
  • 00:11:33.280 --> 00:11:37.160
  • FIRST OF ALL, HIS TEACHING WAS ROOTED IN GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:42.060
  • IT WAS ROOTED IN GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:11:42.070 --> 00:11:44.290
  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT MARK'S PARALLEL ACCOUNT
  • 00:11:45.000 --> 00:11:47.040
  • OF THIS PASSAGE, IT SAYS: FOR HE WAS TEACHING THEM
  • 00:11:47.050 --> 00:11:50.070
  • AS ONE HAVING AUTHORITY AND NOT AS THE SCRIBES.
  • 00:11:50.080 --> 00:11:55.010
  • THE SCRIBES WERE THE TEACHERS IN THE SYNAGOGUES.
  • 00:11:55.020 --> 00:11:57.250
  • AND WILLIAM BARCLAY KNOWS THAT WHENEVER THE SCRIBES
  • 00:11:57.260 --> 00:12:00.180
  • STOOD UP TO PREACH, THEY'RE TEACHING WAS AS DRY AS DUST,
  • 00:12:00.190 --> 00:12:07.000
  • BECAUSE THEY WOULD QUOTE THIS EXPERT AND THIS RABBI.
  • 00:12:07.010 --> 00:12:09.190
  • THEY WOULD QUOTE FROM THIS TRADITION.
  • 00:12:09.200 --> 00:12:11.210
  • RARELY DID THEY EVER MAKE ANY REFERENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:11.220 --> 00:12:14.180
  • IT PUT PEOPLE TO SLEEP.
  • 00:12:14.190 --> 00:12:15.280
  • IT DIDN'T CHANGE THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:12:15.290 --> 00:12:18.050
  • BUT NOT JESUS, HE UNDERSTOOD THE IMPORTANCE
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:21.160
  • OF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:12:21.170 --> 00:12:23.220
  • WE'VE GOT A GREAT ILLUSTRATION OF THAT
  • 00:12:23.230 --> 00:12:25.080
  • IN MATTHEW CHAPTER 19.
  • 00:12:25.090 --> 00:12:28.010
  • REMEMBER, THE PHARISEES WERE TRYING TO TRAP JESUS,
  • 00:12:28.020 --> 00:12:30.200
  • AND SO THEY SAID, "JESUS, WE WANNA ASK YOU
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:32.160
  • "ABOUT A VERY CONFUSING TOPIC, A VERY CONTROVERSIAL SUBJECT,
  • 00:12:32.170 --> 00:12:36.060
  • "THE TOPIC OF DIVORCE.
  • 00:12:36.070 --> 00:12:37.290
  • "WE WANNA KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT DIVORCE.
  • 00:12:38.000 --> 00:12:40.030
  • "NOW RABBI SO-AND-SO SAYS THIS ABOUT DIVORCE.
  • 00:12:40.040 --> 00:12:44.130
  • "AND RABBI SO-AND-SO SAYS THIS, WHAT DO YOU SAY
  • 00:12:44.140 --> 00:12:48.090
  • "ABOUT THIS COMPLEX SUBJECT OF DIVORCE?"
  • 00:12:48.100 --> 00:12:51.070
  • REMEMBER WHAT JESUS SAID IN MATTHEW 19:4?
  • 00:12:51.080 --> 00:12:54.050
  • HE SAID IT'S NOT COMPLEX AT ALL.
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:56.160
  • HE SAID, "HAVE YOU NOT READ?"
  • 00:12:56.170 --> 00:12:58.170
  • AND THEN HE WENT BACK TO THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:12:58.180 --> 00:13:01.030
  • HE SAID JUST LOOK AT WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:13:01.040 --> 00:13:02.280
  • IT IS NOT CONFUSING.
  • 00:13:02.290 --> 00:13:04.120
  • HE SAID, "HAVE YOU NOT READ THAT HE WHO MADE THEM
  • 00:13:04.130 --> 00:13:06.270
  • "FROM THE BEGINNING MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:13:06.280 --> 00:13:11.010
  • "FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER
  • 00:13:11.020 --> 00:13:13.190
  • "AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE,
  • 00:13:13.200 --> 00:13:15.100
  • "AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.
  • 00:13:15.110 --> 00:13:17.180
  • "WHAT GOD HAS JOINED TOGETHER, LET NO MAN DIVIDE."
  • 00:13:17.190 --> 00:13:23.210
  • HE SAID IT'S NOT A CONFUSING TOPIC.
  • 00:13:23.220 --> 00:13:26.010
  • GOD SAID I MADE A MAN AND A WOMAN
  • 00:13:26.020 --> 00:13:28.290
  • TO BE UNITED TOGETHER FOREVER IN A MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:13:29.000 --> 00:13:32.270
  • DON'T TEAR THAT APART.
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:35.030
  • THAT'S WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE.
  • 00:13:35.040 --> 00:13:38.070
  • IT'S NOT THAT CONFUSING.
  • 00:13:38.080 --> 00:13:41.050
  • BY THE WAY, JESUS' WORDS THERE HAVE A GREAT DEAL TO SAY
  • 00:13:41.060 --> 00:13:45.090
  • ABOUT THE CURRENT CONTROVERSY
  • 00:13:45.100 --> 00:13:47.130
  • OVER TRANSGENDER IDENTIFICATION.
  • 00:13:47.140 --> 00:13:51.190
  • PEOPLE ARE ALL CONFUSED.
  • 00:13:51.200 --> 00:13:53.010
  • GEE, HOW SHOULD WE AS CHRISTIANS RESPOND TO TRANSGENDER,
  • 00:13:53.020 --> 00:13:56.040
  • AND WHAT DO WE SAY TO THE WORLD?
  • 00:13:56.050 --> 00:13:57.150
  • AND THIS COUNSELOR SAYS THIS,
  • 00:13:57.160 --> 00:13:59.060
  • AND THIS PSYCHIATRIST SAYS THAT.
  • 00:13:59.070 --> 00:14:00.200
  • HEY, IT'S NOT THAT CONFUSING.
  • 00:14:00.210 --> 00:14:03.150
  • IN MATTHEW 19:4, AGAIN, GOD'S WORDS ARE APPLICABLE.
  • 00:14:03.160 --> 00:14:08.010
  • THE BIBLE SAYS: HAVE YOU NOT READ?
  • 00:14:08.020 --> 00:14:09.280
  • GOD MADE THEM FROM THE BEGINNING MALE AND FEMALE,
  • 00:14:09.290 --> 00:14:16.030
  • NOT MALE, FEMALE, AND QUESTION MARK.
  • 00:14:16.040 --> 00:14:18.260
  • THERE IS MALE AND A FEMALE. GOD IS THE ONE WHO
  • 00:14:18.270 --> 00:14:23.260
  • HAS DETERMINED HOW MANY SEXES THERE ARE.
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:26.040
  • THERE ARE TWO, NOT THREE, MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:14:26.050 --> 00:14:29.200
  • AND LET ME JUST SAY THIS VERY, VERY CLEARLY.
  • 00:14:29.210 --> 00:14:33.110
  • TRANSGENDER CONFUSION, GENDER IDENTITY CONFUSION,
  • 00:14:33.120 --> 00:14:38.190
  • IS AN EMOTIONAL DISORDER THAT SHOULD BE TREATED
  • 00:14:38.200 --> 00:14:43.020
  • PROFESSIONALLY AND COMPASSIONATELY.
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:46.240
  • GENDER IDENTITY CONFUSION
  • 00:14:46.250 --> 00:14:49.280
  • SHOULD NOT BE EXPLOITED BY SOCIAL ACTIVISTS
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:53.040
  • LIKE THOSE IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION
  • 00:14:53.050 --> 00:14:56.170
  • WHO WANT TO DENY THE GOD-GIVEN DISTINCTION
  • 00:14:56.180 --> 00:15:00.180
  • -BETWEEN THE SEXES. -(CONGREGANTS CLAPPING)
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:02.060
  • THIS IS A REBELLION AGAINST GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:05.180
  • AND THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE GOING ON HERE.
  • 00:15:05.190 --> 00:15:07.240
  • AND IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO SAY THAT.
  • 00:15:07.250 --> 00:15:10.030
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:10.040 --> 00:15:21.080
  • AND DON'T ANYBODY CONFUSE THIS.
  • 00:15:21.090 --> 00:15:23.080
  • THIS IS NOT HATRED.
  • 00:15:23.090 --> 00:15:24.270
  • CHRISTIANS SHOULD NEVER RIDICULE OR SHOW HATRED
  • 00:15:24.280 --> 00:15:28.200
  • FOR THOSE EXPERIENCING GENDER CONFUSION.
  • 00:15:28.210 --> 00:15:31.020
  • THEY SHOULDN'T DO THAT AT ALL.
  • 00:15:31.030 --> 00:15:32.220
  • WE OUGHTA TREAT THEM LOVINGLY.
  • 00:15:32.230 --> 00:15:35.070
  • AND THE MOST LOVING THING WE CAN DO
  • 00:15:35.080 --> 00:15:36.290
  • FOR SOMEBODY WHO'S SUFFERING FROM GENDER CONFUSION
  • 00:15:37.000 --> 00:15:39.200
  • IS TO ASSURE THEM THAT THEIR GENDER IS NOT A MISTAKE.
  • 00:15:39.210 --> 00:15:44.060
  • IT'S A PART OF A LOVING, PERFECT PLAN
  • 00:15:44.070 --> 00:15:46.280
  • OF GOD FOR THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:49.000
  • THAT'S THE MESSAGE OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:15:49.010 --> 00:15:50.150
  • IT'S REALLY CLEAR WHEN YOU USE GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:15:50.160 --> 00:15:52.230
  • GOD'S WORD CLEARS UP A LOT OF CONFUSION.
  • 00:15:52.240 --> 00:15:56.170
  • JESUS ALWAYS ROOTED HIS TEACHING IN GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:15:56.180 --> 00:15:59.220
  • SECONDLY, HIS TEACHING WAS FILLED WITH APPLICATION.
  • 00:15:59.230 --> 00:16:04.050
  • IN FAR TOO MANY CHURCHES TODAY,
  • 00:16:04.060 --> 00:16:06.000
  • FAR TOO MANY SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES,
  • 00:16:06.010 --> 00:16:08.090
  • THE TEACHER OR THE PASTOR JUST WORKS ALL WEEK
  • 00:16:08.100 --> 00:16:12.160
  • COMING UP WITH THIS HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
  • 00:16:12.170 --> 00:16:14.240
  • AND THE MEANING OF THIS WORD AND THIS WORD,
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:16.270
  • AND PUTS IT ALL TOGETHER AND KINDA LOADS IT
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:19.050
  • IN HIS DUMP TRUCK.
  • 00:16:19.060 --> 00:16:20.100
  • AND THEN SUNDAY ARRIVES AND THE PASTOR
  • 00:16:20.110 --> 00:16:21.280
  • OR THE SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER JUST DUMPS ALL THE STUFF
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:25.190
  • ON THE PEOPLE, JUST DUMPS ALL THIS CONTENT,
  • 00:16:25.200 --> 00:16:28.230
  • ALL THIS KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:30.210
  • AND THE PEOPLE JUST LEAVE DRY, UNFULFILLED,
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:33.290
  • BECAUSE THERE'S BEEN NO APPLICATION.
  • 00:16:34.000 --> 00:16:37.040
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE REASON GOD HAVE US HIS WORD
  • 00:16:37.050 --> 00:16:39.200
  • IS NOT TO MAKE US SMARTER SINNERS.
  • 00:16:39.210 --> 00:16:42.160
  • GOD HAVE US HIS WORD SO THAT WE CAN KNOW
  • 00:16:42.170 --> 00:16:45.100
  • HOW TO OBEY HIM MORE FAITHFULLY.
  • 00:16:45.110 --> 00:16:47.290
  • AND IF YOU'RE A PASTOR WATCHING THIS MESSAGE,
  • 00:16:48.000 --> 00:16:50.080
  • IF YOU'RE A SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER LISTENING TO THIS,
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:52.220
  • IF YOU DON'T ANSWER THE SO-WHAT QUESTION
  • 00:16:52.230 --> 00:16:55.160
  • AT THE END OF YOUR MESSAGE, IF YOU DON'T USE
  • 00:16:55.170 --> 00:16:58.030
  • THAT BIBLICAL TRUTH TO INSTRUCT PEOPLE
  • 00:16:58.040 --> 00:17:01.000
  • ON HOW TO CHANGE THEIR LIVES TO OBEY CHRIST,
  • 00:17:01.010 --> 00:17:04.050
  • YOU'VE MISSED THE WHOLE POINT OF THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:17:04.060 --> 00:17:05.250
  • NOTICE WHEN JESUS TAUGHT,
  • 00:17:05.260 --> 00:17:08.080
  • HE JUST DIDN'T CONVEY INFORMATION.
  • 00:17:08.090 --> 00:17:10.090
  • WHETHER HE WAS TEACHING THROUGH THE PARABLES
  • 00:17:10.100 --> 00:17:11.280
  • OR THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT, OR THE OLIVET DISCOURSE
  • 00:17:11.290 --> 00:17:14.160
  • ABOUT THE END TIMES,
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:15.220
  • THERE WAS ALWAYS A PRACTICAL APPLICATION
  • 00:17:15.230 --> 00:17:18.060
  • OF WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:17:18.070 --> 00:17:19.010
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS DID,
  • 00:17:19.020 --> 00:17:20.060
  • HIS TEACHING WAS FILLED WITH APPLICATION.
  • 00:17:20.070 --> 00:17:22.130
  • THIRDLY, HIS LIFE WAS LIVED OUT,
  • 00:17:22.140 --> 00:17:24.120
  • HIS TEACHING WAS LIVED OUT IN INTEGRITY.
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:28.140
  • THAT WORD INTEGRITY LITERALLY MEANS TO BE WHOLE,
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:33.280
  • TO BE ONE.
  • 00:17:33.290 --> 00:17:35.280
  • WHEN WE SAY A PERSON HAS INTEGRITY,
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:37.290
  • IT MEANS ALL OF HIS LIFE FITS TOGETHER.
  • 00:17:38.000 --> 00:17:40.190
  • THERE'S NO PART OF HIS LIFE OUT OF ALIGNMENT.
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:43.160
  • THERE'S NO DICHOTOMY BETWEEN WHAT HE SAYS
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:47.040
  • AND HOW HE ACTUALLY LIVES.
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:50.230
  • AGAIN, TEACHERS LISTENING TO THIS, PASTORS,
  • 00:17:50.240 --> 00:17:53.160
  • DON'T BE LIKE THE PHARISEES.
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:55.050
  • THE PHARISEES HAD NO INTEGRITY.
  • 00:17:55.060 --> 00:17:57.280
  • THEY TAUGHT ONE THING, THEY LIVED OUT ANOTHER THING.
  • 00:17:57.290 --> 00:18:00.100
  • JESUS SAID ABOUT THEM, "YOU HYPOCRITES,
  • 00:18:00.110 --> 00:18:02.170
  • "YOU TIE ON HEAVY LOADS ON THE BACKS OF MEN
  • 00:18:02.180 --> 00:18:05.030
  • "OF WHAT THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO DO,
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:06.180
  • "AND YOU'RE UNWILLING TO DO THOSE THINGS YOURSELF."
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:08.170
  • AND THAT'S WHY THE PHARISEES HAD NO AUTHORITY
  • 00:18:08.180 --> 00:18:10.210
  • IN THEIR TEACHING.
  • 00:18:10.220 --> 00:18:12.010
  • PEOPLE KNEW THEY WEREN'T SERIOUS
  • 00:18:12.020 --> 00:18:13.270
  • ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE SAYING.
  • 00:18:13.280 --> 00:18:15.150
  • BY THE WAY, THE SAME IS TRUE FOR US.
  • 00:18:15.160 --> 00:18:18.000
  • OUR WORDS ARE GONNA FALL FLAT
  • 00:18:18.010 --> 00:18:20.190
  • IF WE DON'T LIVE WITH INTEGRITY.
  • 00:18:20.200 --> 00:18:24.040
  • IF WE TELL OTHER PEOPLE TO TITHE AND WE DON'T TITHE,
  • 00:18:24.050 --> 00:18:28.030
  • IF WE TELL OTHER PEOPLE THEY NEED TO PRAY BUT WE DON'T PRAY,
  • 00:18:28.040 --> 00:18:32.010
  • IF WE TELL OTHER PEOPLE THEY NEED TO LIVE MORALLY PURE LIVES
  • 00:18:32.020 --> 00:18:35.160
  • AND YET OUR LIVES ARE FILLED WITH IMMORALITY,
  • 00:18:35.170 --> 00:18:38.240
  • WE LOSE ALL OF OUR AUTHORITY IN OUR TEACHING.
  • 00:18:38.250 --> 00:18:41.200
  • JESUS LIVED THE TRUTH THAT HE TAUGHT.
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:45.120
  • WHAT MADE JESUS SO POWERFUL?
  • 00:18:45.130 --> 00:18:47.000
  • FIRST OF ALL, HIS LIFE, HIS MINISTRY WAS ROOTED
  • 00:18:47.010 --> 00:18:50.150
  • IN TEACHING THE WORD OF GOD THAT CHANGES PEOPLE'S LIVES.
  • 00:18:50.160 --> 00:18:54.020
  • SECONDLY, HIS LIFE WAS MARKED AND CHARACTERIZED
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:56.180
  • BY SUPERNATURAL POWER.
  • 00:18:56.190 --> 00:18:59.170
  • I HEARD ONE BRITISH PASTOR LAMENT:
  • 00:18:59.180 --> 00:19:03.070
  • "AFTER THE APOSTLE PAUL USED TO PREACH, THE PEOPLE RIOTED.
  • 00:19:03.080 --> 00:19:07.140
  • "AFTER I PREACH, MY PEOPLE GO OUT AND HAVE TEA."
  • 00:19:07.150 --> 00:19:11.000
  • -(CONGREGANTS LAUGH) -WELL, I UNDERSTAND THAT LAMENT
  • 00:19:11.010 --> 00:19:14.140
  • BUT WHEN JESUS TAUGHT, IT NOT ONLY STIRRED UP THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:14.150 --> 00:19:18.030
  • IT ALSO STIRRED UP THE DEMONS.
  • 00:19:18.040 --> 00:19:19.250
  • LOOK AT VERSES 33 TO 37:
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:22.150
  • AND THERE WAS A MAN IN THE SYNAGOGUE POSSESSED
  • 00:19:22.160 --> 00:19:25.040
  • BY THE SPIRIT OF AN UNCLEAN DEMON,
  • 00:19:25.050 --> 00:19:27.100
  • AND HE CRIED OUT WITH A LOUD VOICE,
  • 00:19:27.110 --> 00:19:29.040
  • "HA, WHAT DO WE HAVE TO WITH YOU, JESUS OF NAZARETH?
  • 00:19:29.050 --> 00:19:32.170
  • "HAVE YOU COME TO DESTROY US?
  • 00:19:32.180 --> 00:19:34.140
  • "I KNOW WHO YOU ARE, THE HOLY ONE OF GOD."
  • 00:19:34.150 --> 00:19:37.150
  • AND JESUS REBUKED HIM SAYING,
  • 00:19:37.160 --> 00:19:39.130
  • "BE QUIET AND COME OUT OF HIM!"
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:42.050
  • AND WHEN THE DEMON HAD THROWN HIM DOWN IN THEIR MIDST,
  • 00:19:42.060 --> 00:19:44.170
  • HE CAME OUT OF HIM WITHOUT DOING HIM ANY HARM.
  • 00:19:44.180 --> 00:19:47.250
  • AND AMAZEMENT CAME UPON THEM ALL,
  • 00:19:47.260 --> 00:19:50.010
  • AND THEY BEGAN DISCUSSING WITH ONE ANOTHER SAYING,
  • 00:19:50.020 --> 00:19:52.090
  • "WHAT IS THIS MESSAGE?
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:54.100
  • "FOR WITH AUTHORITY AND POWER
  • 00:19:54.110 --> 00:19:56.010
  • "HE COMMANDS THE UNCLEAN SPIRITS, AND THEY COME OUT."
  • 00:19:56.020 --> 00:19:59.230
  • AND THE REPORT ABOUT HIM WAS GETTING OUT
  • 00:19:59.240 --> 00:20:02.070
  • INTO EVERY LOCALITY IN THE SURROUNDING DISTRICT.
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:05.230
  • NOW I KNOW THIS STORY
  • 00:20:05.240 --> 00:20:07.140
  • RAISES ALL KIND OF QUESTIONS.
  • 00:20:07.150 --> 00:20:09.220
  • WE'VE TALKED ABOUT DEMONS BEFORE
  • 00:20:09.230 --> 00:20:11.170
  • IN MY SERIES THE DIVINE DEFENSE,
  • 00:20:11.180 --> 00:20:13.200
  • AND I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET THAT SERIES
  • 00:20:13.210 --> 00:20:15.040
  • IF YOU WANT AN IN-DEPTH STUDY OF DEMONS.
  • 00:20:15.050 --> 00:20:17.120
  • BUT LET ME JUST MAKE THREE IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT DEMONS
  • 00:20:17.130 --> 00:20:21.080
  • AND THEN APPLY IT TO OUR LIVES TODAY.
  • 00:20:21.090 --> 00:20:23.120
  • FIRST OF ALL, THIS PASSAGE, THIS STORY, REMINDS US
  • 00:20:23.130 --> 00:20:26.000
  • THAT DEMONS ARE REAL.
  • 00:20:26.010 --> 00:20:30.150
  • SOME PEOPLE HAVE SAID, "WELL, THIS IDEA OF DEMONS,
  • 00:20:30.160 --> 00:20:32.070
  • "THAT'S JUST A CRUDE FIRST-CENTURY ATTEMPT
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:34.230
  • "TO EXPLAIN MENTAL ILLNESS.
  • 00:20:34.240 --> 00:20:37.230
  • "THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS, AND SO THEY CALLED IT DEMONS.
  • 00:20:37.240 --> 00:20:40.250
  • "DEMONS ARE JUST SOME ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN MENTAL ILLNESS."
  • 00:20:40.260 --> 00:20:44.290
  • WELL, IF THAT'S TRUE,
  • 00:20:45.000 --> 00:20:46.150
  • THEN JESUS OUGHTA BE PUT IN A STRAITJACKET
  • 00:20:46.160 --> 00:20:48.190
  • AND LOCKED UP IN AN ASYLUM,
  • 00:20:48.200 --> 00:20:50.160
  • BECAUSE JESUS WAS TALKING TO DEMONS.
  • 00:20:50.170 --> 00:20:53.270
  • HE WAS INTERACTING WITH THEM AND THEY WERE TALKING TO HIM,
  • 00:20:53.280 --> 00:20:57.040
  • SO SOMETHING WAS GOING ON THERE.
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:20:59.040
  • THE FACT IS DEMONS ARE REAL SPIRIT BEINGS.
  • 00:20:59.050 --> 00:21:03.250
  • PAUL TALKS ABOUT THEM IN EPHESIANS SIX, VERSES 11 AND 12.
  • 00:21:03.260 --> 00:21:07.020
  • HE SAID: PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:09.170
  • THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO STAND FIRM
  • 00:21:09.180 --> 00:21:11.150
  • AGAINST THE SCHEMES, THE PLAN, LITERALLY THE BLUEPRINT,
  • 00:21:11.160 --> 00:21:15.010
  • THAT THE DEVIL HAS FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:15.020 --> 00:21:18.240
  • BUT THE DEVIL IS NOT LIKE GOD.
  • 00:21:18.250 --> 00:21:21.150
  • THE DEVIL IS NOT OMNIPRESENT, HE CAN'T BE MORE
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:23.170
  • THAN ONE PLACE AT A TIME.
  • 00:21:23.180 --> 00:21:24.230
  • HE'S A CREATED BEING.
  • 00:21:24.240 --> 00:21:26.120
  • SO IF HE COULD ONLY BE IN ONE PLACE AT A TIME,
  • 00:21:26.130 --> 00:21:28.120
  • HOW DOES HE ACCOMPLISH HIS PURPOSE IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:21:28.130 --> 00:21:30.150
  • WELL, IT'S FOUND IN VERSE 12:
  • 00:21:30.160 --> 00:21:31.270
  • FOR OUR STRUGGLE IS NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD,
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:34.170
  • BUT AGAINST THE RULERS, PLURAL, AGAINST THE POWERS,
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:38.090
  • PLURAL, AGAINST THE WORLD FORCES OF THIS DARKNESS
  • 00:21:38.100 --> 00:21:42.020
  • AGAINST THE SPIRITUAL FORCES OF WICKEDNESS
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:45.030
  • IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES.
  • 00:21:45.040 --> 00:21:47.010
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT DEMONS HERE.
  • 00:21:47.020 --> 00:21:49.140
  • DEMONS WERE ORIGINALLY ANGELS WHO JOINED LUCIFER
  • 00:21:49.150 --> 00:21:53.110
  • IN HIS REBELLION AGAINST GOD AND WAS CAST TO THE EARTH,
  • 00:21:53.120 --> 00:21:56.010
  • AND SOME UNDERNEATH THE EARTH.
  • 00:21:56.020 --> 00:21:58.180
  • DEMONS ARE REAL BEINGS, HELPERS OF SATAN
  • 00:21:58.190 --> 00:22:01.150
  • TO CARRY OUT HIS PLAN.
  • 00:22:01.160 --> 00:22:03.090
  • THEY ARE REAL.
  • 00:22:03.100 --> 00:22:04.140
  • MUSIC
  • 00:22:04.150 --> 00:22:10.040
  • WE'RE TAKING A LOOK AT 24 HOURS IN THE LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:22:10.050 --> 00:22:14.200
  • AND I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AGAIN NEXT TIME
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:17.020
  • AS WE LOOK AT THIS FASCINATING SNAPSHOT
  • 00:22:17.030 --> 00:22:20.030
  • IN THE LIFE OF OUR SAVIOR.
  • 00:22:20.040 --> 00:22:22.100
  • EARLIER IN TODAY'S MESSAGE,
  • 00:22:22.110 --> 00:22:23.240
  • I SAID THAT YOU AND I AS CHRISTIANS
  • 00:22:23.250 --> 00:22:25.240
  • HAVE BEEN LEFT IN THIS WORLD TO EXPAND THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:22:25.250 --> 00:22:30.190
  • AND WHEN YOU GIVE TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY,
  • 00:22:30.200 --> 00:22:33.020
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOUR INVESTMENT DOES.
  • 00:22:33.030 --> 00:22:36.010
  • GOD WILL USE YOUR GIFT TO PIERCE THE DARKNESS
  • 00:22:36.020 --> 00:22:39.040
  • WITH THE LIGHT OF HIS WORD.
  • 00:22:39.050 --> 00:22:41.020
  • AND BECAUSE OF THE ACTIVE MATCHING CHALLENGE,
  • 00:22:41.030 --> 00:22:43.290
  • TODAY YOUR GIFT OF $100 WILL BE MATCHED
  • 00:22:44.000 --> 00:22:46.280
  • AND BECOME A TOTAL OF $200.
  • 00:22:46.290 --> 00:22:49.170
  • A $500 GIFT AUTOMATICALLY BECOMES $1.000.
  • 00:22:49.180 --> 00:22:54.090
  • EVERY GIFT, REGARDLESS OF THE SIZE,
  • 00:22:54.100 --> 00:22:57.010
  • WILL HAVE TWICE THE IMPACT ON THE KINGDOM OF GOD
  • 00:22:57.020 --> 00:23:00.050
  • UNTIL WE REACH OUR GOAL OF $920.000.
  • 00:23:00.060 --> 00:23:04.200
  • THANK YOU FOR HELPING US REACH MORE AND MORE PEOPLE
  • 00:23:04.210 --> 00:23:07.210
  • THROUGH PATHWAY TO VICTORY THAN EVER BEFORE.
  • 00:23:07.220 --> 00:23:11.120
  • NOW PLEASE STAY RIGHT THERE, I'LL BE BACK WITH MORE
  • 00:23:11.130 --> 00:23:14.230

  • OUR KIDS AND OUR GRANDCHILDREN COME FROM ALL OVER
  • 00:23:24.160 --> 00:23:27.060
  • TO SHARE THE JOYS OF THE PAST YEAR,

  • BLESS EACH OTHER WITH GIFTS,
  • 00:23:30.030 --> 00:23:31.220

  • SO THIS YEAR, WE'RE GIVING OUR LOVED ONES A GIFT
  • 00:23:56.200 --> 00:23:59.210
  • THAT WILL NOT ONLY BRING A SMILE, BUT LEAVE A LEGACY.
  • 00:23:59.220 --> 00:24:04.170
  • THE "DAILY DEVOTIONAL" IS A GIFT THAT INVITES THE LORD
  • 00:24:04.180 --> 00:24:06.290
  • INTO THEIR LIFE EVERY DAY.
  • 00:24:07.000 --> 00:24:09.050
  • SO WHEN THE DAY COMES FOR THE FAMILY CHRISTMAS
