  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- ()
  • 00:00:06.200 --> 00:00:09.200
  • Reaching Israel
  • 00:00:09.290 --> 00:00:12.290
  • 00:00:15.190 --> 00:00:21.170
  • Sounds of shofar
  • 00:00:21.200 --> 00:00:24.020
  • Baruch HaShem beloved ones and bless the name of the Lord.
  • 00:00:24.020 --> 00:00:27.270
  • My name's Rabbi Schneider, I'm with my beautiful wife today, Cynthia.
  • 00:00:27.270 --> 00:00:31.280
  • And we're going to be talking today about one of the biggest theological questions
  • 00:00:31.280 --> 00:00:38.070
  • in all the Bible. Honey, you remember when I was at Bible school and you would see me all the time
  • 00:00:38.070 --> 00:00:43.090
  • arguing, debating, in a positive way with the other students. And one of the things we would
  • 00:00:43.090 --> 00:00:48.030
  • always discuss and debate about is this: Did God choose us or did we choose Him?
  • 00:00:48.030 --> 00:00:55.260
  • A lot of times people lean one way or the other. You remember those days, what were you thinking
  • 00:00:55.260 --> 00:01:01.130
  • as you saw me debating with people during that time?
  • 00:01:01.130 --> 00:01:04.030
  • I loved watching you and your friends debating, it was just a very alive conversation.
  • 00:01:04.030 --> 00:01:09.100
  • One man stimulating another in understanding who God was in a greater way.
  • 00:01:09.120 --> 00:01:16.060
  • I loved those times. It was fun. It was a fun time but I know when you shared
  • 00:01:16.060 --> 00:01:21.130
  • the message you're bringin today, it just changed my life.
  • 00:01:21.130 --> 00:01:25.250
  • I knew when I was in college, I couldnt understand, I wanted to understand who God was.
  • 00:01:25.250 --> 00:01:31.220
  • I wanted to understand what life was all about, but I noticed everybody wasnt like that.
  • 00:01:31.240 --> 00:01:37.060
  • And I couldnt understand it, so when I heard this message that you're bringing today I knew it was truth.
  • 00:01:37.060 --> 00:01:44.170
  • And it set me free so today were just praying that today you will be set free in understanding who you are
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:52.030
  • to the Lord through this message.
  • 00:01:52.030 --> 00:01:54.230
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Baruch
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:56.220
  • Hashem, that's Hebrew for
  • 00:01:56.220 --> 00:01:57.220
  • bless the name of the Lord.
  • 00:01:57.220 --> 00:01:59.040
  • I am excited today to be
  • 00:01:59.040 --> 00:02:01.010
  • continuing with me in a
  • 00:02:01.010 --> 00:02:02.220
  • How Jesus Completes Biblical
  • 00:02:04.140 --> 00:02:06.020
  • Judaism.
  • 00:02:06.020 --> 00:02:07.020
  • This is now season number
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:08.090
  • two, it's the second episode
  • 00:02:08.090 --> 00:02:09.100
  • in this series.
  • 00:02:09.100 --> 00:02:11.020
  • I want to first of all
  • 00:02:11.020 --> 00:02:12.020
  • before I get into the
  • 00:02:12.020 --> 00:02:12.240
  • for a moment about the title
  • 00:02:14.100 --> 00:02:15.260
  • of the series.
  • 00:02:15.260 --> 00:02:16.200
  • Once again, this is season
  • 00:02:16.200 --> 00:02:17.270
  • two of How Jesus Completes
  • 00:02:18.140 --> 00:02:21.140
  • Biblical Judaism.
  • 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:23.160
  • Just a couple nuances that I
  • 00:02:23.160 --> 00:02:24.280
  • think would be good for you
  • 00:02:24.280 --> 00:02:26.100
  • to be aware of; Number one,
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:28.060
  • the Judaism that is
  • 00:02:28.060 --> 00:02:29.110
  • practiced today amongst the
  • 00:02:29.110 --> 00:02:31.020
  • are practicing Judaism on
  • 00:02:32.200 --> 00:02:33.270
  • the planet, is known as
  • 00:02:33.270 --> 00:02:35.160
  • Rabbinic Judaism.
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:37.130
  • When the temple was
  • 00:02:37.130 --> 00:02:38.190
  • Judaism could know longer be
  • 00:02:40.290 --> 00:02:43.050
  • practiced in a large measure
  • 00:02:43.050 --> 00:02:45.260
  • the way the Torah prescribed
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:47.290
  • it.
  • 00:02:47.290 --> 00:02:48.180
  • And the reason is, is that
  • 00:02:48.180 --> 00:02:50.090
  • when the temple was
  • 00:02:50.090 --> 00:02:51.080
  • destroyed, no longer could
  • 00:02:51.080 --> 00:02:53.160
  • much of Biblical Judaism had
  • 00:02:55.150 --> 00:02:57.190
  • to do with sacrifices that
  • 00:02:57.190 --> 00:02:59.150
  • were being offered in the
  • 00:02:59.150 --> 00:03:01.000
  • temple.
  • 00:03:01.000 --> 00:03:02.090
  • And the sacrifices were
  • 00:03:02.090 --> 00:03:03.180
  • because through the offering
  • 00:03:05.150 --> 00:03:06.230
  • of sacrifice blood was being
  • 00:03:06.230 --> 00:03:08.230
  • shed.
  • 00:03:08.230 --> 00:03:09.240
  • You see the Lord said in the
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:10.190
  • Leviticus chapter 17 verse
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:14.060
  • 11, "That the life of the
  • 00:03:14.060 --> 00:03:15.270
  • I've given it to you on the
  • 00:03:18.240 --> 00:03:19.170
  • altar," sayeth the Lord, "to
  • 00:03:19.170 --> 00:03:21.020
  • make an atonement for your
  • 00:03:21.020 --> 00:03:22.050
  • soul; for it's the blood by
  • 00:03:22.050 --> 00:03:24.020
  • reason of it's life that
  • 00:03:24.020 --> 00:03:25.220
  • makes atonement."
  • 00:03:25.220 --> 00:03:26.270
  • And so continually we had a
  • 00:03:26.270 --> 00:03:28.040
  • temple that was standing in
  • 00:03:28.040 --> 00:03:29.070
  • Jerusalem, there was a
  • 00:03:29.070 --> 00:03:31.000
  • priesthood that offered up
  • 00:03:31.000 --> 00:03:32.200
  • sacrifices in the temple and
  • 00:03:32.200 --> 00:03:34.250
  • when innocent animals were
  • 00:03:34.250 --> 00:03:36.090
  • being put to death and the
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:37.260
  • blood was being shed as a
  • 00:03:37.260 --> 00:03:39.170
  • symbol of the fact that the
  • 00:03:39.170 --> 00:03:40.170
  • life had been given, that
  • 00:03:40.170 --> 00:03:42.070
  • was the means by which
  • 00:03:42.070 --> 00:03:44.100
  • mankind could stay in
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:45.280
  • relationship with the Holy
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:47.200
  • God.
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:48.170
  • In other words, the blood
  • 00:03:48.170 --> 00:03:49.230
  • sacrifices through the
  • 00:03:49.230 --> 00:03:52.090
  • the blood represented
  • 00:03:54.200 --> 00:03:56.030
  • atonement.
  • 00:03:56.030 --> 00:03:58.000
  • "The life of the flesh is in
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:03:58.290
  • the blood and I've given it
  • 00:03:58.290 --> 00:04:00.050
  • to you on the altar to make
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:01.110
  • Even as far back as the
  • 00:04:02.160 --> 00:04:03.190
  • Passover, when the Jewish
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:05.050
  • people were delivered out of
  • 00:04:05.050 --> 00:04:06.020
  • Egypt.
  • 00:04:06.020 --> 00:04:06.250
  • What were they required to
  • 00:04:06.250 --> 00:04:07.160
  • do?
  • 00:04:07.160 --> 00:04:08.130
  • To take the blood of a lamb,
  • 00:04:08.130 --> 00:04:09.270
  • put it over their doorpost
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:11.010
  • of their home, go inside the
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:12.230
  • home and when the Angel of
  • 00:04:12.230 --> 00:04:13.280
  • Death, the Angel of Judgment
  • 00:04:13.280 --> 00:04:16.020
  • moved through the land,
  • 00:04:16.020 --> 00:04:17.210
  • everyone that was in a home
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:18.290
  • that was covered by the
  • 00:04:18.290 --> 00:04:19.180
  • blood was spared.
  • 00:04:19.180 --> 00:04:21.080
  • And so to practice what I'm
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:23.160
  • calling Biblical Judaism,
  • 00:04:23.160 --> 00:04:26.010
  • sacrifices would need to be
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:27.090
  • offered, a primary temple in
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:29.240
  • Jerusalem would need to be
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:30.270
  • standing, there would need
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:32.040
  • to be a priesthood in place
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:33.140
  • that was offering these
  • 00:04:33.140 --> 00:04:34.140
  • sacrifices.
  • 00:04:34.140 --> 00:04:35.190
  • None of those three pillars
  • 00:04:35.190 --> 00:04:37.090
  • exist in the Jewish world
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:38.110
  • today.
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:39.070
  • There are no sacrifices and
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:41.270
  • there is no priesthood.
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:43.170
  • And so the Judaism of the
  • 00:04:43.170 --> 00:04:45.060
  • measure, beloved ones,
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:49.010
  • can no longer be practiced.
  • 00:04:49.140 --> 00:04:52.140
  • There was a council that
  • 00:04:52.140 --> 00:04:53.200
  • took place of Jewish leaders
  • 00:04:53.200 --> 00:04:55.200
  • A.D., which is often times
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:04:59.210
  • referred to as the Council
  • 00:04:59.210 --> 00:05:01.190
  • of Yavneh.
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:02.200
  • The Jewish leaders got
  • 00:05:02.200 --> 00:05:03.210
  • addressed was this, because
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:07.040
  • we no longer have a temple
  • 00:05:07.040 --> 00:05:09.040
  • and can no longer offer up
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:10.110
  • sacrifices, what can we do
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:13.030
  • to hold our people together?
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.290
  • And as a result of that
  • 00:05:14.290 --> 00:05:16.070
  • conference, what was
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:17.160
  • launched is what is known
  • 00:05:17.160 --> 00:05:18.170
  • today as Rabbinic Judaism.
  • 00:05:18.170 --> 00:05:21.120
  • Now liturgy and other types
  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:24.170
  • of religious ceremonial
  • 00:05:24.170 --> 00:05:26.150
  • things have replaced the
  • 00:05:26.150 --> 00:05:28.090
  • temple, the priesthood and
  • 00:05:28.090 --> 00:05:29.170
  • the sacrifices.
  • 00:05:29.170 --> 00:05:30.280
  • So when I'm calling this
  • 00:05:30.280 --> 00:05:31.270
  • series, How Jesus Completes
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:34.240
  • Biblical Judaism, I'm not
  • 00:05:34.240 --> 00:05:36.090
  • talking about Jesus'
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:37.240
  • relation to Rabbinical
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:39.180
  • Judaism, which is a modern
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:41.100
  • invention that Jewish
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:43.040
  • leaders invented, once
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:44.260
  • again, because they could no
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:46.060
  • longer practice many of the
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:47.210
  • things that the Torah
  • 00:05:47.210 --> 00:05:48.290
  • prescribed.
  • 00:05:48.290 --> 00:05:50.100
  • So what I'm doing, is not
  • 00:05:50.100 --> 00:05:51.070
  • talking about Jesus
  • 00:05:51.070 --> 00:05:52.070
  • relationship to Rabbinic
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:53.250
  • Judaism, because that to me
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:56.150
  • is not largely relevant.
  • 00:05:56.150 --> 00:05:58.180
  • What I'm trying to do, is
  • 00:05:58.180 --> 00:06:00.020
  • show you how Jesus completes
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:01.270
  • Biblical Judaism.
  • 00:06:01.270 --> 00:06:03.090
  • I'm going back, beloved, to
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:04.240
  • the Torah and the written
  • 00:06:04.240 --> 00:06:06.080
  • Word of God, showing how
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:07.290
  • Yeshua Hamashiach, the
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:09.210
  • prophesied Jewish Messiah,
  • 00:06:09.210 --> 00:06:11.200
  • completes the Tanakh, the
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:13.030
  • Hebrew Bible.
  • 00:06:13.030 --> 00:06:14.150
  • So with that said, I'm
  • 00:06:14.150 --> 00:06:15.190
  • moving forward today.
  • 00:06:15.190 --> 00:06:17.060
  • We have been talking, as
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:18.270
  • we're breaching now into new
  • 00:06:18.270 --> 00:06:19.290
  • subject, we are talking
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:22.100
  • about the plan of salvation.
  • 00:06:22.100 --> 00:06:24.180
  • last week's episode.
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:27.140
  • And what I shared last week
  • 00:06:27.140 --> 00:06:28.220
  • was, was the plan of
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:30.190
  • salvation different in the
  • 00:06:30.190 --> 00:06:32.130
  • Hebrew Bible, in the Old
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:34.110
  • Testament, than it is in the
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:35.140
  • Were Jewish people saved in
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:38.260
  • a different way back then
  • 00:06:38.260 --> 00:06:40.210
  • during Old Testament times,
  • 00:06:40.210 --> 00:06:42.090
  • were Jewish people saved
  • 00:06:42.090 --> 00:06:43.030
  • back then in a different way
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:45.160
  • than people are saved today?
  • 00:06:45.160 --> 00:06:47.140
  • That's the question we're
  • 00:06:47.140 --> 00:06:48.130
  • addressing.
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:49.140
  • And I began answering that
  • 00:06:49.140 --> 00:06:50.290
  • question last week by going
  • 00:06:50.290 --> 00:06:53.020
  • back to the life of Abraham.
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:54.120
  • Abraham is called the father
  • 00:06:54.120 --> 00:06:55.240
  • of all believers, right?
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:06:57.080
  • He's also the father of
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:06:59.140
  • the Jewish patriarchs we
  • 00:07:00.280 --> 00:07:02.150
  • speak of Abraham, Isaac and
  • 00:07:02.150 --> 00:07:03.250
  • Jacob.
  • 00:07:03.250 --> 00:07:04.170
  • It all starts with Abraham.
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:05.270
  • The New Testament refers to
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:06.240
  • father of all those that
  • 00:07:07.280 --> 00:07:08.280
  • believe.
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:09.230
  • that, "The blessing of
  • 00:07:11.010 --> 00:07:12.140
  • Abraham has come upon
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:14.040
  • everybody that's a believer
  • 00:07:14.040 --> 00:07:15.090
  • in Yeshua today."
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:17.010
  • God said to Abraham, "Abram
  • 00:07:17.010 --> 00:07:19.210
  • for your seed all the
  • 00:07:20.000 --> 00:07:23.000
  • nations of the earth shall
  • 00:07:23.000 --> 00:07:24.290
  • Listen to that again.
  • 00:07:25.270 --> 00:07:27.040
  • God said to Abram, who's
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:28.090
  • name was changed to Abram,
  • 00:07:28.090 --> 00:07:30.010
  • "Abraham through your seed
  • 00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:33.250
  • all the nations of the earth
  • 00:07:33.250 --> 00:07:35.170
  • shall be blessed."
  • 00:07:35.170 --> 00:07:36.270
  • Through Abraham's seed the
  • 00:07:36.270 --> 00:07:38.000
  • whole world would be
  • 00:07:38.000 --> 00:07:38.180
  • blessed.
  • 00:07:38.180 --> 00:07:39.140
  • The New Testament identifies
  • 00:07:39.140 --> 00:07:41.160
  • that seed as Yeshua Himself.
  • 00:07:41.160 --> 00:07:43.290
  • seed of Abraham, all the
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:46.240
  • world can be blessed.
  • 00:07:49.130 --> 00:07:51.030
  • And so with that concept in
  • 00:07:51.030 --> 00:07:53.150
  • mind, with Abraham as our
  • 00:07:53.150 --> 00:07:54.280
  • starting point, looking at
  • 00:07:54.280 --> 00:07:56.210
  • the plan of salvation,
  • 00:07:56.210 --> 00:07:58.230
  • asking ourselves, were
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:08:00.050
  • people saved in the Old
  • 00:08:00.050 --> 00:08:02.280
  • Testament, the Tanakh, in a
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:04.200
  • different way than they are
  • 00:08:04.200 --> 00:08:05.260
  • in the New Testament?
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:07.080
  • I began answering that last
  • 00:08:07.080 --> 00:08:08.070
  • week and I said, "Absolutely
  • 00:08:08.070 --> 00:08:09.130
  • not."
  • 00:08:09.130 --> 00:08:10.020
  • And I began to show last
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:12.000
  • week how Abram was saved
  • 00:08:12.000 --> 00:08:13.280
  • through faith.
  • 00:08:13.280 --> 00:08:15.230
  • Abraham left where he was
  • 00:08:15.280 --> 00:08:18.280
  • living with his parents who
  • 00:08:18.280 --> 00:08:20.110
  • were idol worshipers.
  • 00:08:20.110 --> 00:08:22.030
  • He left them to follow God
  • 00:08:22.030 --> 00:08:24.070
  • into the Promised Land.
  • 00:08:24.070 --> 00:08:26.170
  • Now listen to this, how was
  • 00:08:26.170 --> 00:08:28.110
  • it that Abraham, or Abram
  • 00:08:28.110 --> 00:08:30.220
  • gained the faith to leave
  • 00:08:30.220 --> 00:08:32.080
  • where he was?
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:33.090
  • We read about it in Genesis
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:34.280
  • chapter number 12.
  • 00:08:34.280 --> 00:08:36.000
  • God told him, "Listen pick
  • 00:08:36.000 --> 00:08:37.040
  • up, leave where you're at
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:38.190
  • and follow me and I'm gonna
  • 00:08:38.190 --> 00:08:39.170
  • greatly bless you.
  • 00:08:39.170 --> 00:08:40.240
  • I'm gonna make your name
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:41.160
  • great."
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:42.150
  • We find the same phenomenon
  • 00:08:42.150 --> 00:08:43.200
  • in the book of Bereshit,
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:45.000
  • Genesis 17.
  • 00:08:45.000 --> 00:08:46.080
  • God appears to Abram once
  • 00:08:46.080 --> 00:08:47.210
  • again, affirms the covenant
  • 00:08:47.210 --> 00:08:49.160
  • with him.
  • 00:08:49.160 --> 00:08:50.130
  • How did Abraham get the
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:52.120
  • faith to follow God and
  • 00:08:52.120 --> 00:08:54.130
  • enter in to the promised
  • 00:08:54.130 --> 00:08:56.100
  • blessing?
  • 00:08:56.100 --> 00:08:57.230
  • Abraham was able to do that,
  • 00:08:57.230 --> 00:08:59.170
  • listen now, because he
  • 00:08:59.290 --> 00:09:03.010
  • received faith.
  • 00:09:03.010 --> 00:09:05.170
  • In other words, if Abraham
  • 00:09:05.170 --> 00:09:06.130
  • didn't have faith he would
  • 00:09:06.130 --> 00:09:07.290
  • not have left where he was
  • 00:09:07.290 --> 00:09:10.030
  • to follow the Lord into a
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:11.050
  • place he didn't even know
  • 00:09:11.050 --> 00:09:12.100
  • where he was going.
  • 00:09:12.100 --> 00:09:14.000
  • If Abram didn't have faith
  • 00:09:14.000 --> 00:09:16.280
  • he wouldn't have been able
  • 00:09:16.280 --> 00:09:17.250
  • to follow the Lord through
  • 00:09:17.250 --> 00:09:19.110
  • the unknown.
  • 00:09:19.110 --> 00:09:20.200
  • Abram was able to do it,
  • 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:22.040
  • because he had faith.
  • 00:09:22.040 --> 00:09:23.130
  • But the question is, where
  • 00:09:23.130 --> 00:09:25.080
  • did his faith come from?
  • 00:09:25.210 --> 00:09:28.210
  • Did Abram's faith originate
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:31.000
  • from his own vessel?
  • 00:09:31.000 --> 00:09:33.000
  • Did Abram's faith come
  • 00:09:33.000 --> 00:09:34.130
  • because he meditated hard
  • 00:09:34.130 --> 00:09:35.200
  • enough?
  • 00:09:35.200 --> 00:09:36.210
  • Did Abram's revelation of
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:38.160
  • the Creator come to him,
  • 00:09:38.160 --> 00:09:39.260
  • because Abraham was so
  • 00:09:39.260 --> 00:09:40.210
  • focused on God?
  • 00:09:40.210 --> 00:09:42.040
  • No, he was an idol
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:43.280
  • Abram's faith, listen
  • 00:09:45.090 --> 00:09:46.170
  • church, came to him as a
  • 00:09:46.230 --> 00:09:49.230
  • gift from the Creator, just
  • 00:09:49.230 --> 00:09:52.060
  • Faith is the gift of God.
  • 00:09:55.260 --> 00:09:58.260
  • In Genesis 17 for example,
  • 00:09:58.260 --> 00:10:00.140
  • we read that Abram was
  • 00:10:00.140 --> 00:10:02.280
  • sitting there and all of a
  • 00:10:02.280 --> 00:10:04.220
  • sudden the Lord spoke to
  • 00:10:04.220 --> 00:10:06.160
  • him.
  • 00:10:06.160 --> 00:10:07.140
  • Let me read it for you
  • 00:10:07.140 --> 00:10:08.170
  • quickly.
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:09.090
  • Genesis 17 verse 1, "Now
  • 00:10:09.090 --> 00:10:10.280
  • when Abram was nienty-nine
  • 00:10:10.280 --> 00:10:12.110
  • years old, the Lord appeared
  • 00:10:12.110 --> 00:10:13.220
  • to Abram and said to him, "I
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:16.120
  • am God Almighty."
  • 00:10:16.120 --> 00:10:18.100
  • Same thing we read earlier
  • 00:10:18.100 --> 00:10:19.200
  • in the book of Bereshit, in
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:22.040
  • Genesis chapter 12 verse 1.
  • 00:10:22.040 --> 00:10:24.230
  • "Now the Lord said to
  • 00:10:24.230 --> 00:10:25.260
  • Abram."
  • 00:10:25.260 --> 00:10:26.270
  • Abram heard God's voice and
  • 00:10:26.270 --> 00:10:29.170
  • Abram, listen church, had an
  • 00:10:29.170 --> 00:10:32.170
  • experience where the Lord
  • 00:10:32.170 --> 00:10:33.160
  • literally appeared to him in
  • 00:10:33.160 --> 00:10:34.160
  • His glory.
  • 00:10:34.160 --> 00:10:35.230
  • So of course when you hear
  • 00:10:35.230 --> 00:10:37.030
  • the voice of God audibly and
  • 00:10:37.030 --> 00:10:39.000
  • clearly in your spirit and
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:40.290
  • in your presence and when
  • 00:10:40.290 --> 00:10:42.210
  • God appears to you in glory,
  • 00:10:42.210 --> 00:10:44.180
  • you're gonna have faith.
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:46.110
  • God is so big that when He
  • 00:10:46.110 --> 00:10:47.230
  • shows up, beloved, all
  • 00:10:47.230 --> 00:10:49.020
  • doubt, all darkness
  • 00:10:49.020 --> 00:10:50.270
  • disappears.
  • 00:10:50.270 --> 00:10:52.050
  • All doubt flees in His
  • 00:10:52.050 --> 00:10:53.050
  • presence.
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:54.070
  • All darkness disappears
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:56.050
  • totally when the light of
  • 00:10:56.050 --> 00:10:57.200
  • God appears.
  • 00:10:57.200 --> 00:10:59.140
  • And that's what happened to
  • 00:10:59.140 --> 00:11:00.070
  • Abraham.
  • 00:11:00.070 --> 00:11:01.020
  • Just like in a room, the
  • 00:11:01.020 --> 00:11:02.000
  • room could be in total
  • 00:11:02.000 --> 00:11:02.270
  • darkness, but when you
  • 00:11:02.270 --> 00:11:04.070
  • switch the light bulb on,
  • 00:11:04.070 --> 00:11:05.180
  • Abraham was able to follow
  • 00:11:07.270 --> 00:11:09.260
  • God and become the father of
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:11.130
  • all believers, because he
  • 00:11:11.130 --> 00:11:13.040
  • had faith and his faith
  • 00:11:13.040 --> 00:11:15.130
  • beloved, was the gift of
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:18.220
  • Now think about this, not
  • 00:11:19.200 --> 00:11:20.280
  • everybody had faith, but
  • 00:11:20.280 --> 00:11:22.160
  • Abraham received faith,
  • 00:11:22.160 --> 00:11:24.080
  • because God sovereignly
  • 00:11:24.080 --> 00:11:25.090
  • chose to give it to him.
  • 00:11:25.090 --> 00:11:26.270
  • [] The Bible teaches
  • 00:11:26.270 --> 00:11:27.270
  • the same thing about you and
  • 00:11:27.270 --> 00:11:29.110
  • 00:11:31.090 --> 00:11:33.270
  • 00:11:34.000 --> 00:11:40.220
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- ()
  • 00:11:41.080 --> 00:11:44.080
  • It's very important that you
  • 00:11:44.080 --> 00:11:46.090
  • learn how to stand by faith
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:49.170
  • So we want to combat our
  • 00:11:53.080 --> 00:11:54.260
  • fear of the devil and our
  • 00:11:54.260 --> 00:11:56.220
  • fear of evil with the Word
  • 00:11:56.220 --> 00:11:58.290
  • of God.
  • 00:12:00.080 --> 00:12:03.080
  • "I have given you authority
  • 00:12:05.270 --> 00:12:08.060

  • enemy and nothing shall by
  • 00:12:09.260 --> 00:12:12.140
  • Stand up to the devil.
  • 00:12:17.280 --> 00:12:20.160
  • "Greater is He that is in

  • you than he that is in the

  • Bring, hey, bring this woman

  • up here.
  • 00:12:28.150 --> 00:12:30.030
  • Does everybody see this
  • 00:12:30.030 --> 00:12:30.240
  • woman?
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:32.210
  • She's manifesting demons up
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:34.100
  • here.
  • 00:12:34.100 --> 00:12:36.120
  • Jesus went around, He
  • 00:12:36.120 --> 00:12:38.290
  • preached the Gospel.
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:41.280
  • He healed the sick and He
  • 00:12:41.280 --> 00:12:44.270
  • cast out the spirits with
  • 00:12:44.270 --> 00:12:46.020
  • the Word.

  • Look at me.
  • 00:12:49.070 --> 00:12:50.120
  • I command you to leave Satan

  • who am I movement right now.
  • 00:13:15.290 --> 00:13:18.060

  • to the book of Ephesians

  • with you today to show how
  • 00:13:57.120 --> 00:13:58.200

  • Brit Chadashah, the New
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:03.050
  • Testament, fit together as a
  • 00:14:03.050 --> 00:14:05.140
  • hand in a glove and that the
  • 00:14:05.140 --> 00:14:07.030
  • same in both.
  • 00:14:09.120 --> 00:14:10.080
  • It begins with faith and
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:11.260
  • faith is the gift of God.
  • 00:14:12.130 --> 00:14:15.130
  • I'm gonna read Ephesians
  • 00:14:15.130 --> 00:14:16.070
  • chapter 2, beginning in
  • 00:14:16.070 --> 00:14:17.040
  • verse number 1.
  • 00:14:17.040 --> 00:14:18.180
  • Hear the Word of God.
  • 00:14:18.180 --> 00:14:20.100
  • "And you were dead."
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:21.220
  • Now Paul is speaking to
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:22.190
  • believers here.
  • 00:14:22.190 --> 00:14:24.120
  • He's speaking to you and I
  • 00:14:24.120 --> 00:14:25.180
  • that believe.
  • 00:14:25.180 --> 00:14:26.190
  • Paul says this, "And you
  • 00:14:26.190 --> 00:14:28.080
  • were dead in your trespasses
  • 00:14:28.080 --> 00:14:30.080
  • and sins, in which you
  • 00:14:30.080 --> 00:14:32.010
  • formerly walked according to
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:34.050
  • the course of this world,
  • 00:14:34.050 --> 00:14:35.290
  • according to the prince of
  • 00:14:35.290 --> 00:14:37.020
  • the power of the air, of the
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:38.230
  • spirit that is now working
  • 00:14:38.230 --> 00:14:40.190
  • in the sons of disobedience.
  • 00:14:40.190 --> 00:14:42.060
  • Among them," listen, "we
  • 00:14:42.060 --> 00:14:44.220
  • too."
  • 00:14:44.220 --> 00:14:45.260
  • We just like people that
  • 00:14:45.260 --> 00:14:46.260
  • don't believe.
  • 00:14:46.260 --> 00:14:47.190
  • "Among them we too all
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:50.090
  • formerly lived in the lusts
  • 00:14:50.090 --> 00:14:52.120
  • of our flesh, indulging in
  • 00:14:52.120 --> 00:14:54.010
  • the desires of our flesh and
  • 00:14:54.010 --> 00:14:55.080
  • of the mind, and were by
  • 00:14:55.080 --> 00:14:56.200
  • nature children of wrath,
  • 00:14:56.200 --> 00:14:59.170
  • even as the rest."
  • 00:14:59.170 --> 00:15:00.210
  • In other words Paul's
  • 00:15:00.210 --> 00:15:01.130
  • saying, "We're not different
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:02.150
  • than anybody else."
  • 00:15:02.150 --> 00:15:04.010
  • Before Jesus came to us,
  • 00:15:04.010 --> 00:15:06.250
  • before God revealed Him to
  • 00:15:06.250 --> 00:15:08.090
  • us, we were dead in our
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:09.210
  • transgressions and sins.
  • 00:15:09.210 --> 00:15:12.000
  • We were spiritually dead.
  • 00:15:12.000 --> 00:15:14.000
  • We were living in darkness.
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:15.080
  • There was nothing about us
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:18.100
  • that separated us from
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:19.270
  • anybody else in terms of our
  • 00:15:19.270 --> 00:15:21.200
  • Paul said, "We were by
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:23.240
  • nature children of wrath,"
  • 00:15:23.240 --> 00:15:25.170
  • get it now church, "even as
  • 00:15:25.170 --> 00:15:27.280
  • the rest."
  • 00:15:27.280 --> 00:15:28.270
  • something different in us.
  • 00:15:30.050 --> 00:15:32.040
  • But listen, the difference
  • 00:15:32.040 --> 00:15:33.120
  • was in God.
  • 00:15:33.120 --> 00:15:34.150
  • Verse 4, "But God."
  • 00:15:34.150 --> 00:15:37.130
  • Say it with me.
  • 00:15:37.130 --> 00:15:38.110
  • "But God."
  • 00:15:38.110 --> 00:15:39.090
  • The difference wasn't in you
  • 00:15:39.090 --> 00:15:40.030
  • and I.
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:40.270
  • We were, "by nature children
  • 00:15:40.270 --> 00:15:42.050
  • of wrath, even as the rest."
  • 00:15:42.050 --> 00:15:43.270
  • What was the difference?
  • 00:15:43.270 --> 00:15:44.240
  • Verse 4, "But God, being
  • 00:15:44.240 --> 00:15:47.100
  • rich in mercy, because of
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:48.280
  • His great love with which He
  • 00:15:48.280 --> 00:15:50.100
  • loved us, even when we were
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:52.160
  • dead in our transgressions
  • 00:15:52.160 --> 00:15:54.030
  • and sins, made us alive
  • 00:15:54.030 --> 00:15:56.190
  • together with Christ by
  • 00:15:56.190 --> 00:15:57.240
  • grace you've been saved"
  • 00:15:57.240 --> 00:15:59.090
  • now listen, "and raised up
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:01.010
  • with Him and seated us with
  • 00:16:01.010 --> 00:16:02.220
  • Him in the heavenly places
  • 00:16:02.220 --> 00:16:03.240
  • in Christ Jesus."
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:05.040
  • And then Paul goes on to say
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:07.240
  • that this grace that we
  • 00:16:07.240 --> 00:16:08.200
  • received, in verse number 8,
  • 00:16:08.200 --> 00:16:10.020
  • "For by grace you have been
  • 00:16:10.020 --> 00:16:10.290
  • saved," listen now, "through
  • 00:16:10.290 --> 00:16:13.240
  • faith; and that not of
  • 00:16:13.240 --> 00:16:16.020
  • yourselves, it is the gift
  • 00:16:18.210 --> 00:16:21.210
  • of God."
  • 00:16:21.210 --> 00:16:22.270
  • I want you to think about
  • 00:16:22.270 --> 00:16:23.210
  • this with me church.
  • 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:26.000
  • We really have to get the
  • 00:16:26.000 --> 00:16:27.130
  • American mindset
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:29.010
  • out of our head.
  • 00:16:29.010 --> 00:16:30.050
  • You see we think that in
  • 00:16:30.050 --> 00:16:32.030
  • order for God to be just He
  • 00:16:32.030 --> 00:16:34.130
  • has to treat everybody the
  • 00:16:34.130 --> 00:16:35.160
  • same way, but God has never
  • 00:16:35.160 --> 00:16:37.150
  • treated everybody the same
  • 00:16:37.150 --> 00:16:39.220
  • way.
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:41.090
  • He has compassion on who He
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:43.070
  • wants to have compassion on
  • 00:16:43.070 --> 00:16:45.000
  • and He hardens whom He
  • 00:16:45.000 --> 00:16:45.250
  • hardens.
  • 00:16:45.250 --> 00:16:47.070
  • God sovereignly chose you
  • 00:16:47.070 --> 00:16:49.070
  • and I out of this world,
  • 00:16:49.070 --> 00:16:51.020
  • beloved ones, and saved us
  • 00:16:51.020 --> 00:16:53.180
  • by grace through faith; Even
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:55.180
  • as beloved, He sovereigly
  • 00:16:55.180 --> 00:16:58.060
  • chose Israel out of all the
  • 00:16:58.060 --> 00:17:00.160
  • people that are on the face
  • 00:17:00.160 --> 00:17:01.220
  • of the earth and revealed
  • 00:17:01.220 --> 00:17:03.080
  • Himself to them beginning
  • 00:17:03.080 --> 00:17:04.100
  • with Abraham.
  • 00:17:04.100 --> 00:17:05.230
  • Abram, again, he didn't know
  • 00:17:05.230 --> 00:17:07.010
  • God.
  • 00:17:07.010 --> 00:17:07.180
  • He had no faith.
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:08.140
  • He was spiritually dead, but
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:09.210
  • God appeared to him.
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:12.150
  • This caused faith to birth
  • 00:17:12.150 --> 00:17:14.060
  • in Abram.
  • 00:17:14.060 --> 00:17:15.050
  • As a result, Abram followed
  • 00:17:15.050 --> 00:17:16.170
  • God and even offered up his
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:18.090
  • own son.
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:19.080
  • the gift of the Creator.
  • 00:17:21.280 --> 00:17:24.020
  • God appeared to him.
  • 00:17:24.020 --> 00:17:25.090
  • God spoke to him.
  • 00:17:25.090 --> 00:17:26.100
  • Faith was given to him.
  • 00:17:26.100 --> 00:17:27.210
  • As a result of the faith
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:28.240
  • that was given to him he was
  • 00:17:28.240 --> 00:17:30.080
  • able to follow the Lord and
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:31.230
  • obey.
  • 00:17:31.230 --> 00:17:32.260
  • The same is true today.
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:34.240
  • Those of us that believe,
  • 00:17:34.240 --> 00:17:36.180
  • believe because we have
  • 00:17:36.180 --> 00:17:37.160
  • faith.
  • 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:39.110
  • Did everybody in the world
  • 00:17:39.110 --> 00:17:40.130
  • believe at the time of
  • 00:17:40.130 --> 00:17:41.110
  • Abram?
  • 00:17:41.110 --> 00:17:42.040
  • No, because they didn't all
  • 00:17:42.040 --> 00:17:43.030
  • receive the same revelation
  • 00:17:43.030 --> 00:17:44.200
  • that Abram received.
  • 00:17:44.200 --> 00:17:46.160
  • Beloved, listen what God
  • 00:17:46.160 --> 00:17:47.130
  • said once again.
  • 00:17:47.130 --> 00:17:48.090
  • I read this last week, but I
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:49.120
  • want to read it again.
  • 00:17:49.120 --> 00:17:50.240
  • The book of Devarim,
  • 00:17:50.240 --> 00:17:51.290
  • Deuteronomy, chapter 7 verse
  • 00:17:51.290 --> 00:17:53.170
  • 6 and 7.
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:54.230
  • The Lord is speaking here to
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:55.160
  • Israel.
  • 00:17:55.160 --> 00:17:56.210
  • "For you are a holy people
  • 00:17:56.210 --> 00:17:58.070
  • to the Lord your God; the
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:17:59.240
  • Lord your God has chosen,"
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:01.270
  • there's that word chosen,
  • 00:18:01.270 --> 00:18:03.230
  • "The Lord your God has
  • 00:18:03.230 --> 00:18:04.150
  • chosen you to be a people
  • 00:18:04.150 --> 00:18:06.210
  • for His own possession."
  • 00:18:06.210 --> 00:18:08.090
  • Listen to this next phrase,
  • 00:18:08.090 --> 00:18:09.270
  • "out of all the peoples who
  • 00:18:10.260 --> 00:18:13.260
  • are on the face of the
  • 00:18:13.260 --> 00:18:14.210
  • earth."
  • 00:18:14.210 --> 00:18:15.200
  • Notice once again, God did
  • 00:18:15.200 --> 00:18:16.170
  • not choose everybody, but
  • 00:18:16.170 --> 00:18:18.110
  • God chose Israel out of all
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:20.110
  • the peoples on the face of
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:21.110
  • the earth.
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:22.090
  • Then notice the next verse.
  • 00:18:22.090 --> 00:18:23.210
  • "The Lord did not set His
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:24.240
  • love on you nor choose you
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:26.200
  • because you were more in
  • 00:18:26.200 --> 00:18:27.270
  • number than any of the
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:29.030
  • peoples, for you were the
  • 00:18:29.030 --> 00:18:30.190
  • fewest of all the peoples."
  • 00:18:30.190 --> 00:18:32.190
  • In other words, the Lord was
  • 00:18:32.190 --> 00:18:33.150
  • saying, "I did not choose
  • 00:18:33.150 --> 00:18:34.200
  • you because of who you are,
  • 00:18:34.200 --> 00:18:37.160
  • but I chose you simply
  • 00:18:37.160 --> 00:18:38.190
  • because I desired to place
  • 00:18:38.190 --> 00:18:40.250
  • My love on you."
  • 00:18:40.250 --> 00:18:42.090
  • In the same way that we just
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:43.240
  • got done reading beloved
  • 00:18:43.240 --> 00:18:44.270
  • from the book of Ephesians,
  • 00:18:44.270 --> 00:18:46.250
  • that we too were just like
  • 00:18:46.250 --> 00:18:49.190
  • everybody else, even as
  • 00:18:49.190 --> 00:18:51.080
  • Israel was not different in
  • 00:18:51.080 --> 00:18:53.180
  • and of themselves.
  • 00:18:53.180 --> 00:18:55.010
  • There was nothing
  • 00:18:55.010 --> 00:18:55.260
  • spectacular about them.
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:57.160
  • There was nothing special
  • 00:18:57.160 --> 00:18:58.200
  • about them that resided
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:19:00.150
  • within them being different.
  • 00:19:00.150 --> 00:19:02.200
  • God said, "You were the
  • 00:19:02.200 --> 00:19:03.120
  • fewest of the people."
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:04.160
  • Remember God again said they
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:05.230
  • were a stubborn people, an
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:07.070
  • Jesus said, "Which one of
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:09.110
  • the prophets did your
  • 00:19:09.110 --> 00:19:10.090
  • fathers not stone?"
  • 00:19:10.090 --> 00:19:12.010
  • Moses before he died again
  • 00:19:12.010 --> 00:19:13.070
  • said, "You're a stubborn
  • 00:19:13.070 --> 00:19:14.140
  • people.
  • 00:19:14.140 --> 00:19:15.080
  • You're gonna forsake the
  • 00:19:15.080 --> 00:19:16.000
  • So God did not choose them
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:19.220
  • or set His love upon Israel,
  • 00:19:19.220 --> 00:19:21.140
  • because there was something
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:22.110
  • better in them.
  • 00:19:22.110 --> 00:19:23.220
  • But God simply did it
  • 00:19:23.220 --> 00:19:25.030
  • beloved, out of the
  • 00:19:25.030 --> 00:19:26.010
  • prerogative of His own
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:27.120
  • heart; Even as a mother
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:30.200
  • loves the child that comes
  • 00:19:30.200 --> 00:19:32.090
  • out of her womb, not because
  • 00:19:32.090 --> 00:19:34.170
  • there's something different
  • 00:19:34.170 --> 00:19:35.210
  • in the child, but simply
  • 00:19:35.210 --> 00:19:37.130
  • because the mother's
  • 00:19:37.130 --> 00:19:38.180
  • affection chooses to love
  • 00:19:38.180 --> 00:19:40.230
  • her baby.
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:43.010
  • Here's what I'm saying
  • 00:19:43.010 --> 00:19:44.190
  • beloved ones, those of us
  • 00:19:44.190 --> 00:19:47.050
  • that have come to Jesus have
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:49.070
  • come to Jesus for the same
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:51.150
  • reason that Abraham followed
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:53.270
  • God and for the same reason
  • 00:19:53.270 --> 00:19:56.200
  • We have come to Jesus,
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:20:00.110
  • because God chose us to do
  • 00:20:00.110 --> 00:20:02.190
  • so.
  • 00:20:02.190 --> 00:20:03.170
  • Jesus said in John chapter
  • 00:20:03.170 --> 00:20:04.240
  • 15 verse 16, "You did not
  • 00:20:04.240 --> 00:20:06.120
  • Listen, I want to go back
  • 00:20:09.250 --> 00:20:10.240
  • again, because we were in
  • 00:20:10.240 --> 00:20:11.230
  • the book of Ephesians and I
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:13.060
  • was showing you in the book
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:14.160
  • of Ephesians how we were by
  • 00:20:14.160 --> 00:20:16.210
  • nature children of wrath,
  • 00:20:16.210 --> 00:20:18.290
  • before we knew the Lord,
  • 00:20:18.290 --> 00:20:19.260
  • even as the rest.
  • 00:20:19.260 --> 00:20:21.100
  • We were living after the
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:22.070
  • lust of our flesh and of the
  • 00:20:22.070 --> 00:20:23.170
  • mind.
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:24.160
  • We were dead in our
  • 00:20:24.160 --> 00:20:25.140
  • transgressions and sins.
  • 00:20:25.140 --> 00:20:27.040
  • We didn't know God.
  • 00:20:27.040 --> 00:20:28.100
  • We were alien to the things
  • 00:20:28.100 --> 00:20:29.280
  • of God.
  • 00:20:29.280 --> 00:20:31.020
  • But the scriptures is what
  • 00:20:31.020 --> 00:20:31.250
  • made a difference, remember
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:33.130
  • we read in verse number 4 of
  • 00:20:33.130 --> 00:20:34.190
  • Ephesians 2, was God.
  • 00:20:34.190 --> 00:20:36.230
  • You were dead in your
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:37.170
  • God being rich in mercy
  • 00:20:39.090 --> 00:20:41.220
  • because of his great love
  • 00:20:41.220 --> 00:20:42.180
  • with which he loved us made
  • 00:20:42.180 --> 00:20:43.260
  • us alive.
  • 00:20:43.260 --> 00:20:45.160
  • So the difference was not
  • 00:20:45.160 --> 00:20:46.090
  • It wasn't that we chose God.
  • 00:20:47.110 --> 00:20:49.080
  • The difference was God and
  • 00:20:49.080 --> 00:20:50.240
  • why did this happen?
  • 00:20:50.240 --> 00:20:52.160
  • Listen as I read now from
  • 00:20:52.160 --> 00:20:53.120
  • the book of Ephesians
  • 00:20:53.120 --> 00:20:54.190
  • chapter number 1, beginning
  • 00:20:54.190 --> 00:20:55.200
  • in verse number 3.
  • 00:20:55.200 --> 00:20:57.050
  • "Blessed be the God and
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:20:58.130

  • places in Christ, just as,
  • 00:21:04.030 --> 00:21:06.180
  • "listen now, verse 4, "Just
  • 00:21:06.180 --> 00:21:08.140

  • Jesus Christ to Himself."
  • 00:21:19.250 --> 00:21:21.100
  • Did you notice the word
  • 00:21:21.100 --> 00:21:22.100
  • chose there?
  • 00:21:22.100 --> 00:21:23.100
  • Listen again to verse number
  • 00:21:23.100 --> 00:21:24.020
  • "God blessed us with every
  • 00:21:25.030 --> 00:21:25.260

  • that's why we believe.

  • know that you believe,

  • gift of faith even as
  • 00:22:13.260 --> 00:22:15.220

  • God supernaturally gave him
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:18.270

  • fore loved and God's
  • 00:22:25.020 --> 00:22:26.140
  • decision to choose you was

  • It wasn't because you chose
