  • - female announcer: Today
  • 00:00:06.200 --> 00:00:09.200
  • with Joseph Prince.
  • 00:00:09.200 --> 00:00:10.180
  • - Joseph Prince: Do you know
  • 00:00:10.180 --> 00:00:11.060
  • that nowhere in
  • 00:00:11.060 --> 00:00:11.260
  • the New Testament does it
  • 00:00:11.260 --> 00:00:13.000
  • ever say that God must be
  • 00:00:13.000 --> 00:00:15.190
  • reconciled to man, never?
  • 00:00:15.190 --> 00:00:18.170
  • It was man.
  • 00:00:18.170 --> 00:00:19.270
  • God was in Christ reconciling
  • 00:00:19.270 --> 00:00:21.150
  • the world to himself.
  • 00:00:21.150 --> 00:00:23.050
  • God wasn't reconciling himself
  • 00:00:23.050 --> 00:00:24.150
  • to the world.
  • 00:00:24.150 --> 00:00:26.000
  • God needs no reconciliation.
  • 00:00:26.000 --> 00:00:28.090
  • The enmity's in man's part, and
  • 00:00:28.090 --> 00:00:29.290
  • God is saying to all men, "Come
  • 00:00:29.290 --> 00:00:31.250
  • back home to me,
  • 00:00:31.250 --> 00:00:33.060
  • be ye reconciled to God,
  • 00:00:33.060 --> 00:00:34.040
  • be reconciled."
  • 00:00:34.040 --> 00:00:35.150
  • So, man has evil thoughts
  • 00:00:35.150 --> 00:00:37.020
  • about God.
  • 00:00:37.020 --> 00:00:37.290
  • Man has this thought that God
  • 00:00:37.290 --> 00:00:39.070
  • is not for me, amen?
  • 00:00:39.070 --> 00:00:40.270
  • And then they do their best
  • 00:00:40.270 --> 00:00:42.080
  • and they get angry, "God,
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:43.120
  • what's wrong with my best?"
  • 00:00:43.120 --> 00:00:44.150
  • But, you know, your best
  • 00:00:44.150 --> 00:00:45.100
  • is not good enough.
  • 00:00:45.100 --> 00:00:46.140
  • It's lowering God
  • 00:00:46.140 --> 00:00:47.130
  • from his standard.
  • 00:00:47.130 --> 00:00:48.180
  • "Why, why, why can't God
  • 00:00:48.180 --> 00:00:50.080
  • just forgive me without
  • 00:00:50.080 --> 00:00:51.070
  • the blood being shed?
  • 00:00:51.070 --> 00:00:52.030
  • Why can't God,
  • 00:00:52.030 --> 00:00:52.240
  • I forgive everybody?"
  • 00:00:52.240 --> 00:00:53.220
  • Well, you don't say the thing
  • 00:00:53.220 --> 00:00:54.230
  • for a judge, right?
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:00:56.250
  • A judge must be a just judge.
  • 00:00:56.250 --> 00:00:59.040
  • To be a just judge, he must
  • 00:00:59.040 --> 00:01:00.240
  • punish where there's wrongdoing,
  • 00:01:00.240 --> 00:01:02.240
  • amen?
  • 00:01:02.240 --> 00:01:03.240
  • If God just presumptuously
  • 00:01:03.240 --> 00:01:05.080
  • forgive everybody
  • 00:01:05.080 --> 00:01:06.170
  • without a basis, hey,
  • 00:01:06.170 --> 00:01:08.210
  • where is his justice?
  • 00:01:08.210 --> 00:01:10.160
  • The whole universe
  • 00:01:10.160 --> 00:01:11.100
  • will collapse.
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:12.120
  • So, God says the soul that sins
  • 00:01:12.120 --> 00:01:14.090
  • must die, but he himself
  • 00:01:14.090 --> 00:01:16.030
  • provided the death.
  • 00:01:16.030 --> 00:01:17.110
  • He sent his Son, the one that he
  • 00:01:17.110 --> 00:01:18.260
  • loves the most to die for our
  • 00:01:18.260 --> 00:01:19.280
  • sins on the cross and now today,
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:21.260
  • God has no, listen,
  • 00:01:21.260 --> 00:01:23.230
  • there is nothing in
  • 00:01:23.230 --> 00:01:24.210
  • - Joseph Prince: What is
  • 00:01:26.210 --> 00:01:27.070
  • pray earnestly?
  • 00:01:27.070 --> 00:01:28.020
  • It's a prayer of command.
  • 00:01:28.020 --> 00:01:29.040
  • Jesus says, "If you have faith
  • 00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:30.220
  • as a mustard seed, you
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:32.140
  • can say to this mulberry tree,

  • be thou pulled out by the roots,
  • 00:01:34.060 --> 00:01:35.270
  • and it will obey you."
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:37.050
  • When you command,
  • 00:01:37.050 --> 00:01:38.030
  • you must know he's there.
  • 00:01:38.030 --> 00:01:39.190
  • It is him who makes
  • 00:01:39.190 --> 00:01:40.210
  • the difference.

  • the Lord.
  • 00:02:48.210 --> 00:02:49.240
  • All right, Romans 3 tells us
  • 00:02:49.240 --> 00:02:51.290
  • very clearly,
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:53.000
  • being justified freely.
  • 00:02:53.000 --> 00:02:54.130
  • How many of you know
  • 00:02:54.130 --> 00:02:55.090
  • that you are justified?
  • 00:02:55.090 --> 00:02:56.270
  • Justified is like
  • 00:02:56.270 --> 00:02:58.080
  • a play on the words,
  • 00:02:58.080 --> 00:02:59.110
  • "Just if I'd never sinned."
  • 00:02:59.110 --> 00:03:02.070
  • How many of you'd like to come
  • 00:03:02.070 --> 00:03:03.080
  • to God and God treats you like,
  • 00:03:03.080 --> 00:03:05.110
  • not that you don't sin, but just
  • 00:03:05.110 --> 00:03:07.010
  • as if you'd never sinned?
  • 00:03:07.010 --> 00:03:09.030
  • Well, justified has that idea
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:10.280
  • you're acquitted.
  • 00:03:10.280 --> 00:03:12.060
  • And not only that, there's
  • 00:03:12.060 --> 00:03:13.140
  • no reason for God to do that,
  • 00:03:13.140 --> 00:03:15.230
  • all right, but based on
  • 00:03:15.230 --> 00:03:16.140
  • the work of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:03:16.140 --> 00:03:17.130
  • So, for you, it's freely.
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:18.190
  • You don't have to earn it,
  • 00:03:18.190 --> 00:03:19.180
  • it's freely.
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:20.180
  • You are justified freely by his
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:22.020
  • grace through the redemption
  • 00:03:22.020 --> 00:03:23.100
  • that's in Christ Jesus whom God
  • 00:03:23.100 --> 00:03:25.040
  • set forth as a propitiation--big
  • 00:03:25.040 --> 00:03:27.110
  • word, I'm gonna come to it.
  • 00:03:27.110 --> 00:03:28.150
  • By his blood through faith.
  • 00:03:28.150 --> 00:03:30.110
  • Now, what is this propitiation?
  • 00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:32.260
  • Propitiation is a word that we
  • 00:03:32.260 --> 00:03:35.080
  • don't talk about nowadays, but
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:37.240
  • it is literally in the Greek,
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:39.260
  • which the New Testament
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:41.000
  • is written in.
  • 00:03:41.000 --> 00:03:42.120
  • In the Greek,
  • 00:03:42.120 --> 00:03:43.140
  • it is the word mercy seat.
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:46.100
  • In the Greek version of
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:47.280
  • the Old Testament, the ark of
  • 00:03:47.280 --> 00:03:49.070
  • the covenant, the mercy seat
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:51.080
  • is called hilasterion.
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:03:55.090
  • Here it is hilasterion,
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:57.160
  • the Greek word for mercy seat.
  • 00:03:57.160 --> 00:04:00.050
  • Now, let me share with you
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:02.000
  • what's a mercy seat, all right?
  • 00:04:02.000 --> 00:04:03.240
  • You can take this, keep it
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:05.120
  • with you, it's gonna bless you.
  • 00:04:05.120 --> 00:04:07.010
  • You have the confidence
  • 00:04:07.010 --> 00:04:08.030
  • that God hears your prayer.
  • 00:04:08.030 --> 00:04:09.170
  • Can I have a good amen?
  • 00:04:09.170 --> 00:04:11.140
  • Now, let's look at
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:12.160
  • the ark of the covenant.
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:13.110
  • The ark of the covenant,
  • 00:04:13.110 --> 00:04:14.020
  • this is how it looks like, amen?
  • 00:04:14.020 --> 00:04:15.200
  • It is made of an oblong wooden
  • 00:04:17.130 --> 00:04:20.130
  • chest, if you would, all right?
  • 00:04:20.130 --> 00:04:23.040
  • And the wood is a special wood.
  • 00:04:23.040 --> 00:04:25.240
  • It's incorruptible wood.
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:27.060
  • It is a wood that's very sturdy
  • 00:04:27.060 --> 00:04:29.130
  • and strong, and
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:30.260
  • it's incorruptible because
  • 00:04:30.260 --> 00:04:32.150
  • it is almost immune
  • 00:04:32.150 --> 00:04:34.080
  • to every other disease.
  • 00:04:34.080 --> 00:04:35.220
  • And God used that kind of wood,
  • 00:04:35.220 --> 00:04:36.280
  • acacia wood, to demonstrate the
  • 00:04:36.280 --> 00:04:38.240
  • physical humanity of his Son,
  • 00:04:38.240 --> 00:04:41.120
  • the Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:04:41.120 --> 00:04:42.230
  • that is incorruptible.
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:44.000
  • And then they overlay it
  • 00:04:44.000 --> 00:04:45.190
  • with gold.
  • 00:04:45.190 --> 00:04:46.150
  • You know what?
  • 00:04:46.150 --> 00:04:47.080
  • Let me demonstrate to you, okay?
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:48.100
  • There's a video here
  • 00:04:48.100 --> 00:04:49.260
  • I'm gonna show you.
  • 00:04:49.260 --> 00:04:50.200
  • First of all, the wood.
  • 00:04:50.200 --> 00:04:52.220
  • The full humanity
  • 00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:53.160
  • of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:54.270
  • the Christmas story.
  • 00:04:54.270 --> 00:04:56.110
  • He came as man,
  • 00:04:56.110 --> 00:04:58.180
  • overlaid with gold, deity.
  • 00:04:58.180 --> 00:05:01.000
  • Outside, without and within,
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:03.240
  • also inside overlaid with gold.
  • 00:05:03.240 --> 00:05:05.240
  • These are the staves, wood,
  • 00:05:05.290 --> 00:05:08.290
  • and overlaid with gold as well.
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:10.220
  • And then what covers it?
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:13.170
  • The mercy seat.
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:15.250
  • It is made from
  • 00:05:15.250 --> 00:05:17.050
  • one slab of gold.
  • 00:05:17.050 --> 00:05:19.010
  • The whole thing is chiseled,
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:21.240
  • or beaten rather,
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:23.090
  • into one slab of gold.
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:25.160
  • That's the mercy seat.
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:26.260
  • The mercy seat covers the ark.
  • 00:05:26.260 --> 00:05:29.180
  • If you lift it up, it's an empty
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:31.160
  • box but there's ingredients,
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:34.170
  • I mean, there are things inside
  • 00:05:34.170 --> 00:05:35.230
  • and predominantly three things.
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:38.150
  • But for our focus today because
  • 00:05:38.150 --> 00:05:39.260
  • of time I'm just gonna tell you
  • 00:05:39.260 --> 00:05:41.190
  • the main thing it housed is
  • 00:05:41.220 --> 00:05:44.220
  • the two stones of
  • 00:05:44.220 --> 00:05:47.130
  • the Ten Commandments,
  • 00:05:47.130 --> 00:05:49.050
  • the tablets of
  • 00:05:49.050 --> 00:05:49.260
  • the Ten Commandments.
  • 00:05:49.260 --> 00:05:50.290
  • That's why the ark of
  • 00:05:50.290 --> 00:05:52.010
  • the covenant is also known as
  • 00:05:52.010 --> 00:05:54.020
  • the ark of the law, the ark of
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:58.190
  • the covenant because of
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:06:00.050
  • the two tablets of stone
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:02.120
  • that has the finger
  • 00:06:02.120 --> 00:06:03.180
  • of God's handwriting,
  • 00:06:03.180 --> 00:06:05.050
  • the Ten Commandments.
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:07.000
  • And in Exodus 25 it says this,
  • 00:06:07.000 --> 00:06:09.180
  • "The cherubim shall stretch out
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:11.110
  • their wings."
  • 00:06:11.110 --> 00:06:11.290
  • Drop down.
  • 00:06:11.290 --> 00:06:12.250
  • "You shall put the mercy seat
  • 00:06:12.250 --> 00:06:14.070
  • on top of the ark."
  • 00:06:14.070 --> 00:06:15.210
  • So, here is a box, it houses
  • 00:06:15.210 --> 00:06:17.260
  • the Ten Commandments.
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:20.020
  • Don't forget, this box in
  • 00:06:20.020 --> 00:06:21.060
  • the Old Testament is a picture
  • 00:06:21.060 --> 00:06:22.230
  • of your Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:06:22.230 --> 00:06:24.170
  • It's a visual aid
  • 00:06:24.170 --> 00:06:25.180
  • for the children of Israel
  • 00:06:25.180 --> 00:06:26.110
  • to understand.
  • 00:06:26.110 --> 00:06:27.110
  • So, God says the law is only in
  • 00:06:27.110 --> 00:06:29.150
  • one place, in one person's
  • 00:06:29.150 --> 00:06:30.240
  • heart, the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:32.080
  • He's the only one that fulfilled
  • 00:06:32.080 --> 00:06:33.150
  • all the law.
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:34.150
  • Now, as far as you and I
  • 00:06:34.150 --> 00:06:35.290
  • are concerned, God says,
  • 00:06:35.290 --> 00:06:37.000
  • build a mercy seat
  • 00:06:37.000 --> 00:06:38.190
  • and put it right over the ark.
  • 00:06:38.270 --> 00:06:41.270
  • Notice the four sides
  • 00:06:41.270 --> 00:06:42.250
  • of the mercy seat
  • 00:06:42.250 --> 00:06:43.260
  • fully covers the ark
  • 00:06:44.010 --> 00:06:47.010
  • that house the Ten Commandments.
  • 00:06:47.020 --> 00:06:50.020
  • And God says
  • 00:06:50.020 --> 00:06:50.210
  • never let the Ten Commandments
  • 00:06:50.210 --> 00:06:52.130
  • come out.
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:54.150
  • The mercy seat must cover it
  • 00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:56.250
  • and that's why propitiation is
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:58.080
  • the word mercy seat, in Hebrew
  • 00:06:58.080 --> 00:07:00.040
  • kapporeth, which means covering
  • 00:07:00.040 --> 00:07:02.060
  • from the word kaphar.
  • 00:07:02.060 --> 00:07:04.030
  • Actually, it is the third form,
  • 00:07:04.030 --> 00:07:05.180
  • third voice, the intense form of
  • 00:07:05.180 --> 00:07:07.220
  • the Hebrew, kaphar.
  • 00:07:07.220 --> 00:07:08.290
  • It's not just cover, cover.
  • 00:07:08.290 --> 00:07:10.130
  • It's the intensive form of
  • 00:07:10.130 --> 00:07:11.230
  • the word which means
  • 00:07:11.230 --> 00:07:12.230
  • fully cover, fully expiate,
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:16.060
  • eternally cover, eternally
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:18.090
  • remove our sins because
  • 00:07:18.090 --> 00:07:20.240
  • on the mercy seat is where
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:22.060
  • the blood is sprinkled.
  • 00:07:22.060 --> 00:07:23.200
  • So, the high priest, once a year
  • 00:07:23.200 --> 00:07:25.240
  • on Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement,
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:27.100
  • he comes in.
  • 00:07:27.100 --> 00:07:28.020
  • Okay, let's say this is
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:29.110
  • the mercy seat, okay?
  • 00:07:29.110 --> 00:07:31.030
  • Let's say this is
  • 00:07:31.030 --> 00:07:32.080
  • the mercy seat.
  • 00:07:32.080 --> 00:07:32.290
  • He comes in the Holy of Holies,
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:34.080
  • the very extremely holy place,
  • 00:07:34.080 --> 00:07:36.190
  • Holy of Holies, and he comes
  • 00:07:36.190 --> 00:07:38.160
  • before the cherubim
  • 00:07:38.160 --> 00:07:41.120
  • and he sprinkles blood
  • 00:07:41.120 --> 00:07:42.210
  • on the mercy seat.
  • 00:07:42.210 --> 00:07:44.260
  • As long as the blood is on
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:45.280
  • the mercy seat, God will
  • 00:07:45.280 --> 00:07:47.260
  • continue blessing Israel.
  • 00:07:47.260 --> 00:07:49.230
  • Israel can expect a good harvest
  • 00:07:49.230 --> 00:07:52.010
  • in the coming year.
  • 00:07:52.010 --> 00:07:53.110
  • Israel can expect all
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:54.210
  • their enemies coming
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:55.210
  • against them to be defeated.
  • 00:07:55.210 --> 00:07:57.100
  • Israel can expect their family
  • 00:07:57.100 --> 00:07:59.180
  • blessings, that they will leave
  • 00:07:59.180 --> 00:08:01.100
  • each man under this vine tree
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:03.150
  • and his fig tree, everyone
  • 00:08:03.150 --> 00:08:04.250
  • having a rich, rich harvest,
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:07.090
  • amen, their family life blessed.
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:10.000
  • As long as the blood is on
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:11.230
  • the mercy seat, amen.
  • 00:08:11.230 --> 00:08:14.010
  • So, the ark of the covenant is
  • 00:08:14.010 --> 00:08:15.160
  • also a picture of God's throne,
  • 00:08:15.160 --> 00:08:17.060
  • okay?
  • 00:08:17.060 --> 00:08:17.250
  • Now, what are the cherubim
  • 00:08:17.250 --> 00:08:18.290
  • there for?
  • 00:08:18.290 --> 00:08:19.220
  • The cherubim,
  • 00:08:19.220 --> 00:08:20.130
  • what are they there for?
  • 00:08:20.130 --> 00:08:21.230
  • Why are they there?
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:23.040
  • The first mention of cherubim,
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:24.290
  • we actually, cherubim
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:26.280
  • from the cherubim I-M
  • 00:08:26.280 --> 00:08:29.020
  • is actually the plural.
  • 00:08:29.020 --> 00:08:30.090
  • They're actually called cherub
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:31.260
  • or in Hebrew, kruwb, kruwv,
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:34.150
  • all right?
  • 00:08:34.150 --> 00:08:35.060
  • The first mention of cherub
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:36.290
  • is in Genesis 3.
  • 00:08:36.290 --> 00:08:38.180
  • So, God drove out the man.
  • 00:08:38.180 --> 00:08:40.050
  • God drove out the man.
  • 00:08:40.050 --> 00:08:41.060
  • The first time automobile is
  • 00:08:41.060 --> 00:08:42.180
  • mentioned in the Bible is here.
  • 00:08:42.180 --> 00:08:45.180
  • He drove out the man.
  • 00:08:45.180 --> 00:08:48.010
  • I'm just joking, okay?
  • 00:08:48.010 --> 00:08:49.060
  • Some of you are
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:49.260
  • taking down notes.
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:50.240
  • Joke, brother, joke.
  • 00:08:50.240 --> 00:08:52.260
  • "God drove out the man; and God
  • 00:08:52.260 --> 00:08:55.000
  • placed cherubim at the east of
  • 00:08:55.000 --> 00:08:56.210
  • the garden of Eden,
  • 00:08:56.210 --> 00:08:58.020
  • and a flaming sword
  • 00:08:58.020 --> 00:08:59.090
  • which turned every way, to guard
  • 00:08:59.090 --> 00:09:01.090
  • the way to the tree of life."
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:02.040
  • So, after Adam and Eve sinned
  • 00:09:02.040 --> 00:09:03.240
  • against God, the first man,
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:05.140
  • man and woman, the first one.
  • 00:09:05.140 --> 00:09:07.040
  • You know what's the story
  • 00:09:07.040 --> 00:09:07.270
  • of man, Adam and Eve?
  • 00:09:07.270 --> 00:09:09.020
  • Eve who asked Adam,
  • 00:09:09.020 --> 00:09:10.120
  • "Do you love me?"
  • 00:09:10.120 --> 00:09:11.140
  • Adam turned around and says,
  • 00:09:11.140 --> 00:09:12.230
  • "Who else?"
  • 00:09:12.230 --> 00:09:14.110
  • All right, the first man and
  • 00:09:14.110 --> 00:09:15.190
  • the first woman, all right,
  • 00:09:15.190 --> 00:09:17.020
  • when they sinned,
  • 00:09:17.020 --> 00:09:18.160
  • their sin brought--you see,
  • 00:09:18.160 --> 00:09:19.270
  • that's why sin is in the blood.
  • 00:09:19.270 --> 00:09:21.020
  • Sin is not a matter of learning,
  • 00:09:21.020 --> 00:09:22.190
  • sin is in the blood.
  • 00:09:22.190 --> 00:09:24.140
  • And ever since then,
  • 00:09:24.140 --> 00:09:26.280
  • all have sin in their blood.
  • 00:09:26.280 --> 00:09:28.040
  • So, God drove the man out,
  • 00:09:28.040 --> 00:09:30.020
  • but notice the instrument,
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:31.150
  • the agency by which he did it,
  • 00:09:31.150 --> 00:09:33.070
  • the cherubim.
  • 00:09:33.070 --> 00:09:34.110
  • The moment man rebelled against
  • 00:09:34.110 --> 00:09:36.140
  • God, disobeyed God, they drove
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:37.260
  • the man and woman out into a
  • 00:09:37.260 --> 00:09:39.280
  • world that was slowly falling,
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:46.280
  • falling, falling because man
  • 00:09:46.280 --> 00:09:48.100
  • has fallen.
  • 00:09:48.100 --> 00:09:49.120
  • The crown of all creation
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:50.060
  • has fallen.
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:50.280
  • It's affect nature,
  • 00:09:50.280 --> 00:09:52.190
  • it affect the creation.
  • 00:09:52.190 --> 00:09:55.180
  • And now, by the way, that's the
  • 00:09:55.180 --> 00:09:57.120
  • first mention ever in the Bible,
  • 00:09:57.120 --> 00:09:59.030
  • first mention is very important,
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:00.170
  • law of first mention.
  • 00:10:00.170 --> 00:10:01.190
  • There's also a law called
  • 00:10:01.190 --> 00:10:02.140
  • the law of last mention.
  • 00:10:02.140 --> 00:10:03.180
  • In the Old Testament, the first
  • 00:10:03.180 --> 00:10:04.260
  • mention of sword, is a picture
  • 00:10:04.260 --> 00:10:06.140
  • of judgment is here, amen, to
  • 00:10:06.140 --> 00:10:09.100
  • bar the way to the tree of life.
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:11.030
  • The last mention of sword is in
  • 00:10:11.030 --> 00:10:12.230
  • the Book of Zechariah, all right
  • 00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:14.120
  • in the Old Testament where it
  • 00:10:14.120 --> 00:10:15.270
  • says God the Father is talking.
  • 00:10:15.270 --> 00:10:17.160
  • He says, "Awake, O sword,
  • 00:10:17.160 --> 00:10:18.210
  • against my shepherd."
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:20.180
  • Who's the shepherd?
  • 00:10:20.180 --> 00:10:22.040
  • Who is God's shepherd?
  • 00:10:22.040 --> 00:10:23.160
  • Our Lord Jesus and God
  • 00:10:23.160 --> 00:10:25.130
  • is saying, "Awake,
  • 00:10:25.130 --> 00:10:26.090
  • O sword of judgment."
  • 00:10:26.090 --> 00:10:27.170
  • Sword in Genesis 3, "Awake,
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:30.020
  • O sword, and sheathe yourself
  • 00:10:30.020 --> 00:10:32.220
  • in the bosom of the Savior,
  • 00:10:32.220 --> 00:10:35.140
  • the shepherd Savior."
  • 00:10:35.140 --> 00:10:37.150
  • Do you know something?
  • 00:10:37.150 --> 00:10:38.190
  • There's no more sword there
  • 00:10:38.190 --> 00:10:40.040
  • to bar us from God's presence.
  • 00:10:40.040 --> 00:10:41.260
  • Jesus walked in on the cross,
  • 00:10:41.260 --> 00:10:43.210
  • amen?
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:44.170
  • And the sword of judgment
  • 00:10:44.170 --> 00:10:46.100
  • is now forever shielded,
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:48.230
  • sheathed.
  • 00:10:48.290 --> 00:10:51.290
  • You can come freely.
  • 00:10:51.290 --> 00:10:53.160
  • So, once a year to sort of like
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:55.110
  • reenact this, the high priest
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:57.000
  • goes into the Holy of Holies,
  • 00:10:57.000 --> 00:10:58.100
  • amen, and he sprinkles blood,
  • 00:10:58.100 --> 00:11:00.210
  • once on the mercy seat.
  • 00:11:00.210 --> 00:11:02.180
  • Once is all that's needed
  • 00:11:02.180 --> 00:11:04.070
  • for God, the death of Jesus
  • 00:11:04.070 --> 00:11:06.270
  • once and for all.
  • 00:11:06.270 --> 00:11:07.240
  • He shed his blood, amen?
  • 00:11:07.240 --> 00:11:09.160
  • It's all that is needed.
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:11.000
  • Now, before the once on
  • 00:11:11.000 --> 00:11:13.190
  • the mercy seat and before
  • 00:11:13.190 --> 00:11:15.050
  • the mercy seat seven times,
  • 00:11:15.050 --> 00:11:17.010
  • why seven?
  • 00:11:17.010 --> 00:11:18.120
  • Number of perfection.
  • 00:11:18.120 --> 00:11:20.120
  • You and I today when
  • 00:11:20.120 --> 00:11:21.180
  • we come before God,
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:22.150
  • we have a perfect standing.
  • 00:11:22.150 --> 00:11:25.010
  • You have a perfect standing,
  • 00:11:25.050 --> 00:11:28.050
  • amen?
  • 00:11:28.050 --> 00:11:29.090
  • Not only that, why seven times?
  • 00:11:29.090 --> 00:11:30.100
  • Again, because we need to be
  • 00:11:30.100 --> 00:11:32.120
  • reminded again and again and
  • 00:11:32.120 --> 00:11:34.280
  • again that in spite of our sins,
  • 00:11:34.280 --> 00:11:37.110
  • in spite of us not having our
  • 00:11:37.110 --> 00:11:38.290
  • act all together, we can come
  • 00:11:38.290 --> 00:11:41.110
  • to God and we don't look at
  • 00:11:41.110 --> 00:11:43.000
  • ourselves, good things that
  • 00:11:43.000 --> 00:11:45.040
  • we have done or the bad things
  • 00:11:45.040 --> 00:11:46.260
  • that we have done.
  • 00:11:46.260 --> 00:11:47.280
  • We look to the bed of Jesus.
  • 00:11:47.280 --> 00:11:49.200
  • As long as the blood is on
  • 00:11:49.200 --> 00:11:50.260
  • the mercy seat,
  • 00:11:50.260 --> 00:11:51.210
  • and Jesus has shed his blood.
  • 00:11:51.210 --> 00:11:53.150
  • God today, the cherubim, is not
  • 00:11:53.150 --> 00:11:56.150
  • looking at the broken law.
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:57.270
  • If there's no law, they will see
  • 00:11:57.270 --> 00:11:59.130
  • the law and the law says,
  • 00:11:59.130 --> 00:12:01.000
  • "If you disobey me,
  • 00:12:01.000 --> 00:12:01.280
  • I will curse you."
  • 00:12:01.280 --> 00:12:03.110
  • But the cherubim is now looking
  • 00:12:03.110 --> 00:12:05.060
  • at the blood and the blood says,
  • 00:12:05.060 --> 00:12:06.250
  • "You deserve death.
  • 00:12:06.250 --> 00:12:08.150
  • You deserve death.
  • 00:12:08.150 --> 00:12:09.180
  • You deserve death.
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:10.190
  • You deserve death."
  • 00:12:10.190 --> 00:12:11.240
  • But somebody has died!
  • 00:12:11.240 --> 00:12:14.110
  • Blood is the metonymy of death.
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:20.060
  • Blood means death.
  • 00:12:20.110 --> 00:12:23.110
  • Jesus shed his blood.
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:25.200
  • So, the fullest judgment,
  • 00:12:25.200 --> 00:12:28.050
  • the curse, can exact from
  • 00:12:28.050 --> 00:12:30.210
  • sinful man besides disease,
  • 00:12:30.220 --> 00:12:33.220
  • poverty, depression.
  • 00:12:33.220 --> 00:12:36.080
  • The ultimate is what?
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:37.250
  • Tong Tong Chang.
  • 00:12:38.150 --> 00:12:41.150
  • Mati, death.
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:45.040
  • That's the final thing, right?
  • 00:12:45.040 --> 00:12:47.070
  • Am I right?
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:48.180
  • That's the final thing.
  • 00:12:48.180 --> 00:12:50.050
  • The ultimate punishment for man
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:53.100
  • is death.
  • 00:12:53.100 --> 00:12:55.060
  • So, at the cross when Jesus
  • 00:12:55.060 --> 00:12:58.020
  • shed his blood, remember this,
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:59.250
  • God so loved the world.
  • 00:12:59.250 --> 00:13:01.010
  • Another thing I must tell you
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:01.240
  • is this,
  • 00:13:01.240 --> 00:13:02.220
  • even believers have this wrong.
  • 00:13:02.220 --> 00:13:04.160
  • Do you know that nowhere in
  • 00:13:04.160 --> 00:13:06.080
  • the New Testament does it ever
  • 00:13:06.080 --> 00:13:07.240
  • say that God must be reconciled
  • 00:13:07.290 --> 00:13:10.290
  • to man, never?
  • 00:13:10.290 --> 00:13:12.270
  • It was man.
  • 00:13:12.270 --> 00:13:14.090
  • God was in Christ reconciling
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:16.010
  • the world to himself.
  • 00:13:16.010 --> 00:13:17.100
  • God wasn't reconciling himself
  • 00:13:17.100 --> 00:13:18.240
  • to the world.
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:20.080
  • God needs no reconciliation.
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:22.160
  • The enmity's in man's part, and
  • 00:13:22.160 --> 00:13:24.090
  • God is saying to all men,
  • 00:13:24.090 --> 00:13:25.180
  • "Come back home to me,
  • 00:13:25.180 --> 00:13:26.250
  • be ye reconciled to God,
  • 00:13:26.250 --> 00:13:28.070
  • be reconciled."
  • 00:13:28.070 --> 00:13:30.010
  • So, man has evil thoughts
  • 00:13:30.010 --> 00:13:31.100
  • about God.
  • 00:13:31.100 --> 00:13:32.020
  • Man has this thought that God
  • 00:13:32.020 --> 00:13:33.110
  • is not for me, amen?
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:35.040
  • And then they do their best
  • 00:13:35.040 --> 00:13:36.180
  • and they get angry, "God,
  • 00:13:36.180 --> 00:13:37.190
  • what's wrong with my best."
  • 00:13:37.190 --> 00:13:38.230
  • But, you know, your best
  • 00:13:38.230 --> 00:13:39.200
  • is not good enough.
  • 00:13:39.200 --> 00:13:40.190
  • It's lowering God
  • 00:13:40.190 --> 00:13:41.160
  • from his standard.
  • 00:13:41.160 --> 00:13:44.040
  • "Why, why, why can't God
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:45.180
  • just forgive me without
  • 00:13:45.180 --> 00:13:46.190
  • the blood being shed?
  • 00:13:46.190 --> 00:13:47.140
  • Why can't God,
  • 00:13:47.140 --> 00:13:48.120
  • I forgive everybody?"
  • 00:13:48.120 --> 00:13:49.060
  • Well, you don't say the thing
  • 00:13:49.060 --> 00:13:50.040
  • for a judge, right?
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:51.140
  • A judge must be a just judge.
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:54.090
  • To be a just judge, he must
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:55.160
  • punish where there's wrongdoing,
  • 00:13:55.160 --> 00:13:57.180
  • amen?
  • 00:13:57.180 --> 00:13:59.010
  • If God just presumptuously
  • 00:13:59.010 --> 00:14:00.190
  • forgive everybody
  • 00:14:00.190 --> 00:14:01.160
  • without a basis, hey,
  • 00:14:01.160 --> 00:14:03.200
  • where is his justice?
  • 00:14:03.200 --> 00:14:05.220
  • The whole universe
  • 00:14:05.220 --> 00:14:06.190
  • will collapse.
  • 00:14:06.190 --> 00:14:07.230
  • So, God says the soul that sins
  • 00:14:07.230 --> 00:14:09.130
  • must die, but he himself
  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:11.120
  • provided the death.
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:12.170
  • He sent his Son, the one that he
  • 00:14:12.170 --> 00:14:14.030
  • loves the most to die for our
  • 00:14:14.030 --> 00:14:15.140
  • sins on the cross and now today,
  • 00:14:15.140 --> 00:14:17.110
  • God has no, listen, there
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:18.290
  • is nothing in God's heart
  • 00:14:18.290 --> 00:14:20.090
  • but love for you.
  • 00:14:20.180 --> 00:14:23.180
  • Are you listening?
  • 00:14:23.180 --> 00:14:25.250
  • However, there was a case in
  • 00:14:25.250 --> 00:14:28.170
  • the Bible where somebody
  • 00:14:28.170 --> 00:14:30.110
  • removed the ark--the mercy seat.
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:32.190
  • The mercy seat is supposed to
  • 00:14:32.190 --> 00:14:33.180
  • cover the Ten Commandments,
  • 00:14:33.180 --> 00:14:35.040
  • right?
  • 00:14:35.040 --> 00:14:35.130
  • Somebody tried to remove it.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:37.050
  • That's the only instance
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:38.070
  • in history.
  • 00:14:38.070 --> 00:14:39.110
  • Oh yeah, another one was
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:40.250
  • "Raiders of the Lost Ark,"
  • 00:14:40.280 --> 00:14:43.280
  • Indiana Jones.
  • 00:14:43.280 --> 00:14:46.070
  • But the only time in history is
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:48.060
  • a place called Beth-shemesh.
  • 00:14:48.060 --> 00:14:50.280
  • When y'all go to Israel to
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:51.280
  • visit, ask the guide to bring
  • 00:14:51.280 --> 00:14:53.180
  • you there, Beth-shemesh.
  • 00:14:53.180 --> 00:14:54.200
  • In Beth-shemesh,
  • 00:14:54.200 --> 00:14:55.270
  • the ark returned back to Israel
  • 00:14:55.270 --> 00:14:57.240
  • from the land of the Philistines
  • 00:14:57.240 --> 00:14:59.190
  • and the people of Israel
  • 00:14:59.190 --> 00:15:00.210
  • were excited.
  • 00:15:00.210 --> 00:15:01.140
  • The people of Beth-shemesh,
  • 00:15:01.140 --> 00:15:02.070
  • more specifically.
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:03.020
  • They went to the ark,
  • 00:15:03.020 --> 00:15:04.090
  • you know what they did?
  • 00:15:04.090 --> 00:15:05.130
  • Of all the things instead of
  • 00:15:05.130 --> 00:15:06.160
  • worshiping the Lord, all right,
  • 00:15:06.160 --> 00:15:08.070
  • and appreciating,
  • 00:15:08.070 --> 00:15:09.110
  • they looked inside the ark.
  • 00:15:09.110 --> 00:15:11.180
  • You're not supposed to do that,
  • 00:15:11.180 --> 00:15:12.080
  • why?
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:12.260
  • God wants the law under
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:14.000
  • the mercy seat.
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:15.040
  • If you bring out the law,
  • 00:15:15.040 --> 00:15:16.110
  • guess what.
  • 00:15:16.110 --> 00:15:17.020
  • Either you keep all of it, and
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:18.140
  • the law says you must keep all.
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:20.110
  • You fail one, you fail all.
  • 00:15:20.110 --> 00:15:21.270
  • It's stands as
  • 00:15:21.270 --> 00:15:23.010
  • a composite whole.
  • 00:15:23.010 --> 00:15:24.230
  • Never expose the law.
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:25.290
  • Once you expose the law,
  • 00:15:25.290 --> 00:15:26.220
  • you expose everybody
  • 00:15:26.220 --> 00:15:27.210
  • to the curse of the law.
  • 00:15:27.210 --> 00:15:29.050
  • The law says, "Unless you keep
  • 00:15:29.050 --> 00:15:30.030
  • me perfectly, I cannot but curse
  • 00:15:30.030 --> 00:15:32.060
  • you, curse your family,
  • 00:15:32.060 --> 00:15:34.080
  • the judgment will come."
  • 00:15:34.080 --> 00:15:36.070
  • You know what they did?
  • 00:15:36.070 --> 00:15:37.130
  • The people of Beth-shemesh, they
  • 00:15:37.130 --> 00:15:38.190
  • looked into the ark, which means
  • 00:15:38.190 --> 00:15:40.020
  • they pushed away the mercy seat
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:41.110
  • to look into the ark.
  • 00:15:41.110 --> 00:15:42.250
  • And the Bible says
  • 00:15:42.250 --> 00:15:43.210
  • many of them died.
  • 00:15:45.290 --> 00:15:48.290
  • So, today Jesus is our mercy
  • 00:15:48.290 --> 00:15:51.160
  • seat, and no one can remove
  • 00:15:51.160 --> 00:15:53.200
  • Jesus from his place.
  • 00:15:53.200 --> 00:15:55.170
  • I said, no one can remove Jesus
  • 00:15:55.170 --> 00:15:58.030
  • from his place.
  • 00:15:58.030 --> 00:16:00.140
  • Can I have a good amen?
  • 00:16:00.140 --> 00:16:02.000
  • So friend, I want you to know
  • 00:16:02.170 --> 00:16:05.170
  • something in closing,
  • 00:16:05.170 --> 00:16:07.250
  • bring 1 John 4, please.
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:11.090
  • We have known--I want you to
  • 00:16:11.090 --> 00:16:12.290
  • read this with me as we close.
  • 00:16:12.290 --> 00:16:14.190
  • "We have known--" Talk lah,
  • 00:16:15.170 --> 00:16:18.170
  • the whole service I'm talking,
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:21.010
  • you know?
  • 00:16:21.010 --> 00:16:23.000
  • At home, my wife talk, my wife
  • 00:16:23.000 --> 00:16:25.290
  • don't talk, my son talk.
  • 00:16:25.290 --> 00:16:27.110
  • Actually, Wendy doesn't talk
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:28.080
  • much, I wish she does, you know,
  • 00:16:28.080 --> 00:16:29.290
  • but my son talks a lot, okay?
  • 00:16:29.290 --> 00:16:32.030
  • Down here I talk,
  • 00:16:32.030 --> 00:16:33.090
  • then y'all don't talk.
  • 00:16:33.090 --> 00:16:34.160
  • I talk for so long, talk lah.
  • 00:16:34.160 --> 00:16:36.290
  • Let's try again.
  • 00:16:36.290 --> 00:16:38.190
  • We'll close with this.
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:52.230
  • It's not enough just to know.
  • 00:16:52.230 --> 00:16:54.140
  • Some of you have heard
  • 00:16:54.140 --> 00:16:55.150
  • Pastor Prince teach
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:57.020
  • God loves you.
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:16:58.220
  • It's not enough to know.
  • 00:16:58.220 --> 00:17:00.130
  • You have to believe, you have to
  • 00:17:00.130 --> 00:17:02.250
  • believe that God loves you.
  • 00:17:02.250 --> 00:17:05.100
  • Notice, it's not just one.
  • 00:17:05.100 --> 00:17:06.260
  • It doesn't say we know
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:08.080
  • the love that God has.
  • 00:17:08.080 --> 00:17:08.280
  • No, we have known and believed
  • 00:17:08.280 --> 00:17:11.210
  • the love that God has for us.
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:13.280
  • Did you hear that?
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:15.110
  • You gotta believe
  • 00:17:15.110 --> 00:17:16.180
  • that God loves you.
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:18.130
  • How did God love you?
  • 00:17:18.130 --> 00:17:19.260
  • Look at the cross.
  • 00:17:19.260 --> 00:17:20.290
  • The greatest demonstration
  • 00:17:20.290 --> 00:17:22.080
  • of God's love for you
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:23.080
  • is at the cross, amen?
  • 00:17:24.170 --> 00:17:27.170
  • And also every day there's
  • 00:17:27.170 --> 00:17:29.220
  • personal demonstrations.
  • 00:17:29.240 --> 00:17:32.240
  • Not everything in life is rosy,
  • 00:17:32.240 --> 00:17:34.270
  • right?
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:35.150
  • There are a valley of
  • 00:17:35.150 --> 00:17:37.000
  • experiences, but even a valley
  • 00:17:37.000 --> 00:17:38.070
  • experience, when God shuts
  • 00:17:38.070 --> 00:17:39.080
  • a door, it's because
  • 00:17:39.080 --> 00:17:40.260
  • he's opening a big door.
  • 00:17:41.080 --> 00:17:44.080
  • Someone leaves you that love
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:45.170
  • very much it's because God knows
  • 00:17:45.170 --> 00:17:46.230
  • that person is not good for you
  • 00:17:46.230 --> 00:17:47.280
  • in the future.
  • 00:17:47.280 --> 00:17:49.120
  • You gotta believe that God loves
  • 00:17:49.120 --> 00:17:50.040
  • you, he protects you.
  • 00:17:50.040 --> 00:17:51.170
  • Even when you are not happy with
  • 00:17:51.170 --> 00:17:52.170
  • him at the moment, he will love
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:54.010
  • you enough to disappoint you
  • 00:17:54.010 --> 00:17:56.010
  • because he see God is coming
  • 00:17:56.010 --> 00:17:57.020
  • in your future.
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:17:58.210
  • But we don't have the full
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:18:00.040
  • picture, so, you know we--let me
  • 00:18:00.040 --> 00:18:03.040
  • just say this, it's not enough
  • 00:18:03.040 --> 00:18:04.130
  • to know but believe, why?
  • 00:18:04.130 --> 00:18:06.290
  • Let me illustrate with a story
  • 00:18:06.290 --> 00:18:08.150
  • in the prodigal son.
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:10.010
  • People forget it was Jesus who
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:11.080
  • shared this parable of a man who
  • 00:18:11.080 --> 00:18:13.040
  • had two sons and the younger of
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:14.260
  • them says, "Father, give me
  • 00:18:14.260 --> 00:18:16.180
  • my share of inheritance."
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:18.030
  • And in Israel it's like saying,
  • 00:18:18.030 --> 00:18:20.000
  • "I can't wait for you to die.
  • 00:18:20.000 --> 00:18:22.040
  • I want my inheritance now."
  • 00:18:22.040 --> 00:18:24.030
  • So, the father gave him
  • 00:18:24.030 --> 00:18:24.240
  • the inheritance.
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:25.170
  • He went to a far off country
  • 00:18:25.170 --> 00:18:26.240
  • and spent all his money
  • 00:18:26.240 --> 00:18:28.130
  • on riotous living.
  • 00:18:28.130 --> 00:18:29.260
  • When his money ran out,
  • 00:18:29.260 --> 00:18:31.050
  • his friends ran out.
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:32.220
  • He had nothing left,
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:34.000
  • but his life began
  • 00:18:34.000 --> 00:18:36.000
  • to take on abject poverty.
  • 00:18:36.000 --> 00:18:37.210
  • His only meal was in the pigpen
  • 00:18:38.030 --> 00:18:41.030
  • looking at the--and for the Jew,
  • 00:18:41.030 --> 00:18:43.080
  • that's the pits
  • 00:18:43.080 --> 00:18:44.250
  • to be with the pigs.
  • 00:18:44.250 --> 00:18:46.030
  • Looking at the pig's food and
  • 00:18:46.030 --> 00:18:47.100
  • actually, actually envying
  • 00:18:47.100 --> 00:18:49.060
  • what they eating,
  • 00:18:49.060 --> 00:18:50.110
  • wanting to eat what they eat.
  • 00:18:50.110 --> 00:18:52.190
  • And the Bible says he came to
  • 00:18:52.190 --> 00:18:53.200
  • himself and said, "Even in my
  • 00:18:53.200 --> 00:18:54.240
  • father's house, there are bread
  • 00:18:54.240 --> 00:18:57.010
  • enough and to spare.
  • 00:18:57.010 --> 00:18:59.000
  • I think I'll arise and go back
  • 00:18:59.000 --> 00:19:00.110
  • to my father and say to my
  • 00:19:00.110 --> 00:19:01.200
  • father, father, make me
  • 00:19:01.200 --> 00:19:03.150
  • one of your hired servants."
  • 00:19:03.150 --> 00:19:05.060
  • In other words, he still does
  • 00:19:05.060 --> 00:19:06.050
  • not believe the father
  • 00:19:06.050 --> 00:19:07.040
  • loves him.
  • 00:19:07.040 --> 00:19:08.060
  • He's trying to go back
  • 00:19:08.060 --> 00:19:09.010
  • to earn his bread.
  • 00:19:09.030 --> 00:19:12.030
  • Let me ask you a question, okay?
  • 00:19:12.030 --> 00:19:13.240
  • And this is also for believers.
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:15.100
  • You may have heard me preach
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:16.140
  • that God loves you.
  • 00:19:16.140 --> 00:19:17.100
  • I'm asking you,
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:17.290
  • do you believe it?
  • 00:19:17.290 --> 00:19:19.040
  • All the while when the son
  • 00:19:19.040 --> 00:19:20.100
  • was out there,
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:21.170
  • did the father love him?
  • 00:19:21.170 --> 00:19:23.080
  • When the son was depressed
  • 00:19:23.080 --> 00:19:24.250
  • at the pigpen,
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:26.200
  • did the father love him?
  • 00:19:26.200 --> 00:19:28.110
  • The reality, did the father love
  • 00:19:28.110 --> 00:19:29.070
  • him, but he was still depressed,
  • 00:19:29.110 --> 00:19:32.110
  • why?
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:33.020
  • He didn't believe in it.
  • 00:19:33.020 --> 00:19:35.190
  • When he fell into shame, when
  • 00:19:35.190 --> 00:19:38.000
  • he fell into social disfavor,
  • 00:19:38.000 --> 00:19:40.000
  • did the father love him?
  • 00:19:40.000 --> 00:19:42.080
  • Has the father forgiven him
  • 00:19:42.080 --> 00:19:44.050
  • of all his sins?
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:46.110
  • But was he still in that state?
  • 00:19:46.110 --> 00:19:48.100
  • Yes.
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:49.140
  • So, the fact that God loves you
  • 00:19:49.140 --> 00:19:50.210
  • does not change your life
  • 00:19:50.210 --> 00:19:51.290
  • unless you believe it.
  • 00:19:53.210 --> 00:19:56.210
  • So, there are those who say,
  • 00:19:56.210 --> 00:19:57.260
  • "Pastor Prince, I listen to your
  • 00:19:57.260 --> 00:19:58.210
  • sermon all the time."
  • 00:19:58.210 --> 00:19:59.160
  • It's not a matter of hearing my
  • 00:19:59.160 --> 00:20:00.190
  • sermon, do you believe
  • 00:20:00.190 --> 00:20:01.240
  • that God loves you?
  • 00:20:01.240 --> 00:20:04.210
  • So, all the while when he was in
  • 00:20:04.210 --> 00:20:06.090
  • abject poverty, does the father
  • 00:20:06.090 --> 00:20:08.280
  • have bread enough and too spare
  • 00:20:08.280 --> 00:20:11.070
  • and the riches of the glory
  • 00:20:11.100 --> 00:20:14.100
  • of his resources available
  • 00:20:14.100 --> 00:20:16.250
  • for the son?
  • 00:20:16.250 --> 00:20:17.220
  • Yes, yes.
  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:20.040
  • The fatted calf, was it waiting?
  • 00:20:20.040 --> 00:20:22.110
  • Yes.
  • 00:20:22.110 --> 00:20:23.210
  • Did the father hold any grudge?
  • 00:20:23.210 --> 00:20:25.170
  • No.
  • 00:20:25.170 --> 00:20:26.210
  • Has the father forgiven the son?
  • 00:20:26.210 --> 00:20:28.120
  • Yes.
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:29.170
  • But was the son still
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:30.090
  • in poverty?
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:30.270
  • Yes, why?
  • 00:20:30.270 --> 00:20:32.190
  • He didn't believe.
  • 00:20:35.190 --> 00:20:38.190
  • You understand?
  • 00:20:38.190 --> 00:20:40.120
  • Repentance is nothing more
  • 00:20:40.120 --> 00:20:41.120
  • than turning around,
  • 00:20:41.120 --> 00:20:42.140
  • repentance towards God.
  • 00:20:42.140 --> 00:20:44.120
  • A lot of people think repent
  • 00:20:44.120 --> 00:20:45.070
  • means, I repent of this action,
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:46.090
  • this action.
  • 00:20:46.090 --> 00:20:47.030
  • You can't repent enough of any
  • 00:20:47.030 --> 00:20:48.030
  • action because only the actions
  • 00:20:48.030 --> 00:20:49.100
  • that you're cognizant of
  • 00:20:49.100 --> 00:20:50.130
  • you repent of.
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:52.000
  • What about those that
  • 00:20:52.000 --> 00:20:53.060
  • you're not cognizant of?
  • 00:20:53.060 --> 00:20:55.200
  • We sin against God
  • 00:20:55.200 --> 00:20:56.280
  • more than we realize.
  • 00:20:56.280 --> 00:20:58.190
  • Thank God, God forgives based
  • 00:20:58.190 --> 00:21:00.150
  • on his knowledge of our sins,
  • 00:21:00.150 --> 00:21:02.010
  • not based on our knowledge.
  • 00:21:02.260 --> 00:21:05.260
  • If I go home right now,
  • 00:21:05.260 --> 00:21:07.020
  • I think that I'm happy.
  • 00:21:11.020 --> 00:21:14.020
  • God forgives us according to his
  • 00:21:14.020 --> 00:21:16.060
  • riches, thank God not according
  • 00:21:16.060 --> 00:21:18.210
  • to my, I can't say riches,
  • 00:21:18.210 --> 00:21:21.110
  • my pauper state,
  • 00:21:22.070 --> 00:21:25.070
  • my poverty of spirit or based on
  • 00:21:25.150 --> 00:21:28.150
  • my knowledge of my sins.
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:29.240
  • How poor is that?
  • 00:21:29.240 --> 00:21:31.020
  • Based on my confession,
  • 00:21:31.020 --> 00:21:31.190
  • how little I confess.
  • 00:21:31.210 --> 00:21:34.210
  • No, he forgives us according to
  • 00:21:34.210 --> 00:21:35.240
  • the riches of his grace.
  • 00:21:35.240 --> 00:21:37.230
  • There's something about someone
  • 00:21:37.230 --> 00:21:39.160
  • that believe God loves them.
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:41.080
  • Let's say somebody
  • 00:21:41.080 --> 00:21:42.010
  • doesn't believe.
  • 00:21:42.010 --> 00:21:42.210
  • Let's say Pastor Daniel here
  • 00:21:42.210 --> 00:21:44.150
  • doesn't believe God loves him,
  • 00:21:44.150 --> 00:21:45.260
  • but he knows him mentally.
  • 00:21:45.260 --> 00:21:46.280
  • He can teach it.
  • 00:21:46.280 --> 00:21:48.130
  • I can choose him because I know
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:49.280
  • he believes so I can illustrate.
  • 00:21:49.280 --> 00:21:52.280
  • Let's say, Gabriel believes
  • 00:21:52.280 --> 00:21:54.030
  • that God loves him.
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:55.150
  • So, even though they are so
  • 00:21:55.150 --> 00:21:56.080
  • close together, something about
  • 00:21:56.080 --> 00:21:57.270
  • Gabriel that makes God
  • 00:21:57.270 --> 00:22:00.110
  • pour more blessings.
  • 00:22:00.110 --> 00:22:01.270
  • It's not that God loves him
  • 00:22:01.270 --> 00:22:03.040
  • more, it's that his door
  • 00:22:04.100 --> 00:22:07.100
  • for blessing is bigger.
  • 00:22:07.100 --> 00:22:08.280
  • You see, the sun shines on every
  • 00:22:08.280 --> 00:22:10.200
  • house but those who have
  • 00:22:10.200 --> 00:22:12.240
  • a bigger window get more sun.
  • 00:22:12.240 --> 00:22:14.110
  • It's not that God is saying,
  • 00:22:14.110 --> 00:22:16.190
  • "Wah, the sun favors you more,
  • 00:22:16.190 --> 00:22:19.010
  • huh?
  • 00:22:19.010 --> 00:22:19.220
  • You got more light
  • 00:22:19.220 --> 00:22:20.250
  • in your house."
  • 00:22:20.250 --> 00:22:21.180
  • No, no, it's that he
  • 00:22:21.180 --> 00:22:23.180
  • opened up the house to the sun.
  • 00:22:23.180 --> 00:22:25.280
  • And when you come to him,
