THE HEBRAIC ROOTS OF THE FAITH

 

Jesus
00:03
see the beauty
00:08
languages and see their content
00:13
condom for the king of God that they
00:16
might be an endtime people of God
00:18
proclaiming the salvation throughout the
00:20
earth
00:29
[Music]
00:39
he sounded like panel
00:42
hello
01:04
his is this on our you’re hearing me
01:09
yeah well got your seatbelts on
01:18
I think I’m going to be snorting and
01:21
pouring at the ground like an enraged
01:24
bull something has reached a crescendo
01:29
and climax
01:31
I have lost my capacity to hear let
01:36
alone participate in worship you need to
01:39
pray for me it’s reached the point where
01:42
it jangles my sensibilities say
01:47
something must be wrong with me I I
01:49
don’t know but I want to pray and not
01:53
bring a jaundiced note but something
01:57
redemptive and maybe the Lord is playing
02:00
upon me to sound something not only for
02:06
yourself but I see we’re being televised
02:08
this morning and it probably is a
02:11
statement for the larger Church of which
02:14
you are a reflection also because there
02:17
is a terrible sameness that pervades all
02:21
of Christendom today utterly predictable
02:26
so many choruses then this then that the
02:30
introduction the speaker you are well
02:31
aware of and we call that worship and
02:35
and we’ve had a service and we’ve met
02:37
with the Lord Lord if you have another
02:42
view on this we would like to hear it
02:45
and if we’re a little bit out of whack
02:48
adjust us and if we have succumbed to
02:52
some kind of charismatic Pentecostal
02:55
culture and has become dear to us and
02:59
familiar as anything will but it somehow
03:02
jangles your sensibilities then let us
03:06
know we’re willing to be adjusted and we
03:10
thank you for the privilege of being
03:13
related to a Living God who speaks may
03:17
the earth hear your voice today this
03:19
morning now and your people and may they
03:23
be able to give a hearty yay and amen
03:25
however much you may have to jab us a
03:30
bit
03:31
and we thank you and give you the praise
03:33
for that kind of love which is really
03:36
the father’s love and lots of us have
03:38
grown up without it
03:40
and it shows so come we’re willing to be
03:43
spanked chastened changed that you might
03:48
be honored and glorified in this earth
03:52
before the end comes in Jesus name we
03:55
pray amen well this is going to be a
04:00
rare experience for you because I
04:03
somehow fumbling and bumbling through
04:05
the papers that I carry with me of my
04:09
deathless prose and notes that I take
04:12
and sometimes speak from I just have my
04:15
I happen to fall upon notes that I took
04:18
in reflections from kala but I’m sure
04:22
you’ve never heard of him
04:23
but you ought to he’s a great a blessing
04:28
benefit to the church but the remarkable
04:31
thing is that he has been lost to the
04:35
consideration of our entire generation
04:37
he’s out of vogue he’s no longer popular
04:41
and even if he were you’re not likely to
04:44
have heard him because he’s a theologian
04:47
and we Pentecostals are a little bit
04:50
suspicious about people who think it’s
04:56
not an activity that with all that
04:57
familiar with ourselves
04:59
and we think that somehow it’s
05:02
antithetical to the holy spirit so I
05:07
want to assure you I’m reading from a
05:10
man whose mind was directed by the Holy
05:14
Spirit and when he came out with his
05:17
book on the Epistle to the Romans in
05:20
1918 it was a veritable bomb blast I
05:24
mean it just reverberate it throughout
05:28
the entire theological world because he
05:31
was a German speaking Swiss theologian
05:35
teaching in Germany and sounded a new
05:40
note it was a return to the word it was
05:43
a neoconservative ISM from a church that
05:48
had moved into liberal theology and have
05:52
finally eventuated in God is dead
05:54
theology and so bought broke right into
05:57
that his name is spelled BA rth and in
06:01
German you don’t pronounce the H it’s a
06:03
HOD Bart call but can I read a little
06:07
bit he’s talking about our relation to
06:12
God if it is on the wrong side of
06:16
Resurrection that is to say if we have
06:20
only given assent to the Credo or the
06:24
doctrine but we are not ourselves living
06:27
in it we’re on the wrong side and I
06:30
think that that’s descriptive of
06:32
virtually the entire church our
06:36
relationship to God is ungodly we
06:40
suppose that we know what we are saying
06:42
when we say god we assigned to him the
06:45
highest place in our world and in so
06:49
doing we place him fundamentally on one
06:51
line with ourselves and with things we
06:54
assume that he needs something and so
06:57
that we are able to arrange our relation
06:59
to him as we arrange our other
07:01
relationships we press ourselves into
07:04
proximity with him and so all unthinking
07:07
we make him nigh unto ourselves I wish I
07:12
had time
07:13
to break down his statements and we’ve
07:15
rephrase them so that it would be more
07:18
acceptable to your hearing but I think
07:21
that you can follow this and likely our
07:23
sessions being taped you’ll be able to
07:25
hear it again I love him for what he’s
07:27
saying he has the audacity to break in
07:30
and to suggest that we don’t know God as
07:33
we ought that in fact it may well be a
07:36
massive religious deception going on
07:39
aided and abetted by our choruses that
07:42
move us in kind of euphoric ways to
07:47
think that because did we get a rise out
07:50
of it that somehow that constitutes
07:52
worship and the knowledge of God the
07:55
fact of the matter is Saints we don’t
07:57
know as we ought to know and I think we
08:00
have come full circle and we’re sharing
08:03
the sin of Israel that God might
08:06
comprehend all in His mercy because he
08:09
said to Israel and who should have known
08:10
him better than his own chosen people
08:13
and his covenant appeal of whom I am
08:15
descendent that you thought I was such a
08:19
one as yourself you know if you’re not
08:22
careful there’s an unconscious process
08:24
that takes place by which we project
08:28
unto God and form him in our image he
08:32
becomes a little patsy errand boy and we
08:35
see him as something given to make our
08:38
marriages better or find us a husband
08:40
the wife a girlfriend or take care of
08:42
our bodies our health our finances we
08:45
are losing Saints or perhaps have never
08:47
known God as we ought the sense of God
08:51
is grievously absent from the church it
08:56
would be much better for us to walk into
08:58
a Sunday morning service without a
09:00
pre-recorded canned music coming up lest
09:04
we have to face the terrible silence but
09:08
face the silence and sit there in our
09:11
poverty in our spiritual poverty and
09:14
recognize and acknowledge that we don’t
09:16
know as we ought then we are candidates
09:19
for knowing but so long as we presume to
09:22
bluff our way through and
09:25
the whole thing filled with noise and
09:27
music and sound he’s left impotent he
09:31
cannot help us we have to lie in the bed
09:35
that we ourselves are making while all
09:38
the world shrivels up and dies around us
09:41
with the grounded pillar and truth you
09:43
know that we are called to be the ground
09:46
and pillar of truth
09:48
what hope for the world and for New
09:51
Zealand if we are not that if we’re just
09:54
a little pale reflection of an already
09:57
existing society that has its quaint
10:00
Sunday culture so I appreciate this man
10:05
you can imagine the shrieks and the
10:07
howls that went up when he made
10:09
statements of this kind
10:16
so in all unthinking we make him nigh
10:19
unto ourselves we allow ourselves an
10:21
ordinary communication with him we
10:24
permit ourselves to reckon with him as
10:26
though they were not any extraordinary
10:29
behavior on our part we dare to deck
10:31
ourselves out as his companions patrons
10:34
advisers and commissioners we confound
10:36
time with eternity this is the
10:39
ungodliness of our relation to God and
10:42
our relation to God is unrighteous
10:44
secretly we are ourselves the master in
10:48
this relationship we are not really
10:50
concerned with God but with our own
10:52
requirements excuse me while I wipe the
10:56
drool off my chin I use are you drooling
11:01
salivating or getting a little brittle
11:05
and edgy and irritable this is the word
11:09
of truth Saints and all the church needs
11:11
to hear it it’s unrighteous when we fit
11:16
God into our pattern and scheme and the
11:20
doer of Deeds that accommodate our
11:22
convenience we need to be made
11:25
inconvenient for him and the church has
11:28
become domesticated routine of services
11:31
and a little Sunday polished for our
11:36
lives but
11:38
odd as god is not known not honored not
11:41
reverence not served we are not really
11:49
concerned with God but with our own
11:51
requirements in that a remarkable
11:54
statement
11:55
how many can see it and to which God
11:59
must adjust himself our arrogance
12:02
demands that and that in addition to
12:04
everything else and so we set God upon
12:08
the throne of the world we mean by God
12:10
ourselves in quote believing on him
12:13
unquote we justify enjoy and the door
12:16
ourselves our devotion consists in a
12:20
solemn affirmation of ourselves and of
12:22
the world and a pious setting aside of
12:26
the contradiction under the banners of
12:28
humility and emotion we rise in
12:31
rebellion against God ooh I have to read
12:35
that one again under the banners of
12:38
humility and emotion maybe I would
12:40
paraphrase it under the banners of
12:43
worship and music we rise in rebellion
12:50
against God and don’t even recognize it
12:54
as that we confound time with eternity
12:59
this is our unrighteousness such as our
13:01
relation to God apart from and without
13:03
Christ on this side of Resurrection if
13:06
we’re on the wrong side these things
13:09
must invariably follow these
13:11
consequences this deterioration is
13:14
inevitable if we are not on the right
13:17
side of resurrection that is to say
13:20
actually living out of the life of God
13:25
thinking of ourselves were can be
13:27
thought only of God we are unable to
13:29
think of him more highly than we think
13:31
of ourselves being to ourselves where
13:34
God ought to be he is more to us than we
13:36
are to ourselves this secret
13:38
identification of ourselves with God
13:40
carries with it isolation from him isn’t
13:44
it interesting that instead of bringing
13:47
us near to God the consequence is a
13:50
further separation for
13:51
God and maybe that’s why we have to turn
13:54
the amplifiers up even higher and become
13:57
even more frenetic in our religious
14:00
activity and more and invites more and
14:04
more realm or room for the rellis a
14:08
soulish realm to have its activity I
14:11
think the evidence of the true knowledge
14:14
of God is the enjoyment of silence the
14:18
ability to be quiet in God’s presence
14:20
and to wait upon him without getting
14:23
edgy or irritated or irritable or
14:26
thinking that something must happen to
14:28
fill the time and fill the hour and then
14:31
just to allow God and His presence to
14:34
begin to move upon us maybe in patterns
14:37
and forms that we had not intended in
14:39
fact God being the creator I can’t
14:42
imagine that any to Sunday should ever
14:44
be the same maybe on one occasion we’ll
14:48
begin with the word maybe some outburst
14:51
of tongues and interpretation will
14:53
commence the meeting maybe will forget
14:55
music entirely when this predictable
15:02
sameness comes over the church it’s a
15:06
symptom that we are far from God who in
15:10
the beginning created and still creates
15:13
if we allow him his opportunity you
15:18
imagine the excitement of coming to
15:20
fellowship then what will he say now
15:23
what will he do now what what expression
15:26
of his heart has he appointed for this
15:29
hour and this day you can you cannot
15:32
know and find out until you arrive oh
15:34
what an end to the weariness of the
15:37
flesh and getting the kids all prepared
15:39
and all of the havoc of a Sunday morning
15:42
to get them crammed into the service and
15:44
and go through the can mechanical
15:46
prescribed and and predictable thing and
15:49
go home again how is he honored and all
15:52
that
15:57
men have imprisoned and encased the
15:59
truth the righteousness of God
16:02
they have rimmed it to their own measure
16:04
and thereby robbed that both of its
16:07
earnestness and of its significance they
16:10
have made it ordinary harmless useless
16:13
and therefore transformed it into
16:16
untruth I’m trying to understand myself
16:20
this morning
16:21
why have I lost my capacity to even be
16:25
present in so-called worship you know
16:28
and be fairly agreeable and able to
16:31
stand and give some put no I had to
16:33
leave the building I think it was in
16:36
conjunction with yesterday that
16:38
yesterday was so earnest in God so
16:41
intense in the importance of God that I
16:45
had that this right alongside of that
16:47
the contrast was so stunning that it
16:51
rendered me incapable of bearing it but
16:55
if this is what you know and all that
16:57
you know you might even be disposed to
17:00
think that this is reality that this is
17:03
the faith and we even have a better form
17:07
of it than the church down the street
17:08
because we’re Pentecostal we need a rude
17:13
awakening
17:14
we need a thorough shaking
17:18
we have lost or have never known the
17:22
sense of God as he in fact is and not as
17:26
we think him to be so maybe I’m just
17:33
ventilating my own frustration my own
17:36
awareness of my own acute need that is a
17:41
reflection of the condition of the
17:43
church itself and he says about this
17:49
ungodliness that it will not fail to
17:51
thrust us into ever new forms of
17:55
unrighteousness now I don’t want to be
17:57
nasty or critical but I wouldn’t
18:00
altogether dismiss the possibility that
18:03
what is celebrated as the Toronto
18:05
revival might be the new for
18:08
of unrighteousness and if it’s not the
18:11
next will be yet more bizarre more
18:13
ungainly more questionable more dubious
18:17
more charged and shot through with men
18:21
bellowing like animals and other kinds
18:24
of things that would seem to be totally
18:26
incompatible with the holiness of God
18:29
there’s a decelerating thing there’s a
18:31
spiral downward there’s something about
18:34
the nature of the faith you either go on
18:37
upward or you’d necessarily fall
18:39
backward and down and maybe even out
18:45
just over the breakfast-table the
18:48
convent came up I’ll share with you for
18:49
what it’s worth that may be what
18:52
underlines and gives us the security to
18:55
go on in the kind of frivolity and
18:57
lightness that characterizes the church
19:00
is that we have the assurance that we
19:03
can’t lose our salvation but what if you
19:09
can dangerously tease God and finally
19:15
exhaust his long patience to the point
19:18
where your name is blotted out from the
19:21
Lamb’s Book of Life
19:22
that you’ve acted so consistently apart
19:26
from God for so long and had become so
19:29
hard to his entreaties so incapable of
19:33
hearing and being corrected that in the
19:35
last analysis you’re no better off than
19:37
those who were not saved and in fact
19:39
become that again by having your name
19:42
blotted out of the Lamb’s Book of Life
19:45
I’ll tell you if we even were alive to
19:48
the fear of such a possibility the whole
19:51
complexion and atmosphere of the church
19:54
will be changed in a moment we would not
19:57
allow ourselves levity and lightness if
20:00
that if the consequence of
20:03
unrighteousness is a continual spiraling
20:05
downward and possibly out we would be
20:08
much more jealous and careful and
20:12
watchful about our corporate and
20:14
personal conduct and life
20:24
[Music]
20:26
he says this is the rebellion which
20:28
makes it impossible for us to see the
20:30
new dimensional plane and the meaning of
20:34
our salvation against such rebellion
20:36
there can be revealed only the wrath of
20:38
God well we know the judgment is coming
20:42
there’s a day of a lord coming or do we
20:45
know because we don’t we don’t act as if
20:48
we know the air that we exude is that
20:52
this is the best of all possible worlds
20:54
and if not it can be improved and that
20:58
somehow it will go on indefinitely
21:03
there’s no sense of imminence of an end
21:07
or of judgement or of the last days or
21:10
the conclusion of the age there’s no
21:13
hanging in with the kind of Lord come
21:19
Lord Jesus I can’t take it another day
21:21
that my soul is vexed and chafed by the
21:24
unrighteousness that is everywhere about
21:26
me I can’t breathe and live in this
21:30
world that is a lie I’m waiting for the
21:33
end there the righteous end that must
21:36
come and I’m expecting it I’m hasting
21:38
and looking for the appearing of the
21:40
Lord that what I’m describing is not the
21:45
status and mentality of the church
21:47
presently although ironically it was
21:51
2,000 years ago they expected then what
21:56
we ought more rightly to be expecting
21:58
now and how is it that we have lost this
22:02
sense that would impute to our life a
22:06
sense of urgency and seriousness and a
22:10
dynamic that makes the church the church
22:14
what we have been reduced to is a
22:16
succession of services and even those
22:19
are not all that good now don’t look at
22:24
me like that
22:30
we’re preaching it’s biblical edifying
22:35
but it’s not requiring it doesn’t put
22:40
God’s finger in our chest
22:43
it doesn’t make personal requirement of
22:46
us it is altogether general it’s
22:50
biblical but it’s a set piece maybe even
22:55
a performance we are not hearing the
22:58
word of the Lord there’s a famine for
23:01
the word of the Lord that is to say what
23:04
he himself is speaking now and God calls
23:11
this rebellion so I want to try in these
23:19
statements with what may be at the heart
23:22
of our malady namely our divorce from
23:27
those things that pertain to Israel that
23:32
something has happened where the church
23:35
has become a kind of entity unto itself
23:38
apart from its forebears apart from its
23:42
antecedents apart from the historical
23:45
and unbroken continuum of the holy
23:49
things that have come through the
23:50
apostles and the prophets that have
23:53
their origins in art the Davidic route
23:55
the hope the Hebraic faith into which
23:59
you were inducted by the mercy and grace
24:03
of god you’re altogether if you’ll allow
24:05
me to say it far to Gentile
24:10
and that’s a serious point because I
24:12
forgot where it is the poll says
24:14
now don’t be speaking to the non-jewish
24:17
Church and he says now don’t do as the
24:19
Gentiles do another strange thing to say
24:23
to a church that is itself Gentile
24:25
because how does Paul see them they have
24:28
become Hebraic eyes they have been
24:30
brought into the Hebraic faith and so
24:33
don’t now act like them those Gentiles
24:35
out there something new has happened to
24:37
you you who are far off have been
24:39
brought nigh into the Commonwealth of
24:42
Israel into the covenants and promises
24:44
and hopes of Israel now so don’t go
24:48
deporting yourself as if you are them
24:51
see what I mean let me read that for you
24:55
in Ephesians you might want to turn to
24:57
chapter 2 and 3 of that great book given
25:08
to us by one who is called to the
25:14
mysteries of the faith a steward of the
25:17
mysteries who tells us to remember in
25:22
chapter 2 in verse 11 therefore remember
25:26
that you formerly you the Gentiles in
25:29
the flesh who are called uncircumcision
25:31
by the so called circumcision which is
25:34
performed in the flesh by human hands
25:36
remember that you were at that time
25:38
separate from Messiah now I know your
25:42
Bible says Christ mine does too
25:45
but come on let’s go back to the
25:48
original Hebrew word because it has
25:52
connotations and meanings that have been
25:55
lost to us to the use of the Greek as a
25:58
Jewish kid growing up in Brooklyn and a
26:01
seeker after truth I never once thought
26:06
for a moment that there could be any
26:08
connection with a figure named Jesus
26:10
Christ with my Jewish life and no one
26:14
was ever able to explain to me that
26:16
Christ is not Jesus’s last name because
26:19
I certainly knew a Ginsburg and Cohen
26:22
and greenberg but I never knew a Jewish
26:25
family by the name of Christ I had to
26:29
wait until I was saved in my 35th year
26:32
to learn that Christ is not a surname
26:34
it’s a title and that it’s the English
26:38
translation of the Greek word Christos
26:41
which is the translation of the Hebrew
26:44
word Messiah and Messiah Oh I’d tell you
26:48
they’re Saints when you take that word
26:50
to your lips like the rare wine that it
26:53
is and hold it in your mouth and and
26:55
feel the dotting effect of that before
26:59
you swallow down that life-giving thing
27:01
and feel the warmth permeate your entire
27:04
being you have not really savored and
27:08
enjoyed and understood the preciousness
27:11
of the faith to which you were called
27:14
who were once far-off
27:15
and without God and without hope in the
27:18
world you were brought nigh by the blood
27:26
of their Messiah the word Messiah has no
27:30
meaning no significance apart from its
27:34
Hebraic Old Testament prophetic and
27:37
biblical setting to bring that out as
27:40
some kind of New Testament term and see
27:44
us as some kind of abrupt innovation
27:46
different from an other than that which
27:48
has preceded us is to lose the faith and
27:53
I don’t think I could ever describe this
27:56
but it was recent and it’s being
27:58
recalled to my memory now and a little
28:00
interchange with German Saints a little
28:03
band of young believers in the early 30s
28:06
to whom I had become something of a
28:08
spiritual father and I began
28:10
increasingly to offend them by the kinds
28:13
of things that you’re hearing from me
28:15
and about the issue of nation and what
28:19
might have been Germany’s calling in God
28:22
if the nation had ever thought to seek
28:24
him and forsake its own imperialist and
28:29
inflated ambition and they got so
28:33
irritated by these thoughts
28:35
one girl she was virtually gritting her
28:39
teeth she could barely contain her
28:41
indignation and spat out at me and she
28:43
said and what about Christ what about
28:47
Christ I thought it was spelled with a k
28:49
the way she was sounding it she was
28:52
spitting out what about Christ what she
28:53
was saying is what about the New
28:56
Testament what about to be saved in
29:00
Christ and and what apart from all this
29:03
Hebraic stuff I almost got the
29:07
impression that the Christ that she was
29:09
sounding was not at all the Messiah of
29:13
Israel but some kind of deity for
29:16
Gentiles apart from Jews and if you go
29:20
on like that you will really continue to
29:23
convince and persuade Jews that that’s
29:25
true I had to say to these Germans what
29:30
nation has have Jews lived in and have
29:34
had a longer tenure than your nation for
29:37
2,000 years there’s been a Jewish
29:39
presence in your nation and all that we
29:42
call Jewish has had its formation with
29:44
you even the Yiddish language and yet
29:47
for that how many Jews who have been
29:50
with you since time immemorial have ever
29:53
realized that the God whom you owe
29:55
sensibly worship is the God of Jacob you
30:00
have not communicated anything to the
30:02
Jews in your midst that your God is
30:05
their God so completely have you severed
30:08
the historic and ancestral continuum and
30:12
have established something altogether
30:14
independent than apart
30:20
we need to find a way back to the
30:23
authentic root and source and that might
30:25
be the corrective in bringing us into an
30:28
alignment with God as God for if he’s
30:31
not the God of Jacob and the God of
30:33
Israel who is he and can we know him
30:36
better than his relationship with that
30:38
people Paul speaks in Romans 11 about
30:41
the severity and the goodness of God in
30:44
what connection in his dealing with this
30:48
ancient people there is no fear in the
30:52
church for God the fear of God is absent
30:56
from the church and that’s why we take
30:58
the horrendous liberties that we do for
31:01
how shall we fear him if we have not
31:03
known his severity his judgments his
31:06
dealings how far he will go even with
31:09
his own ancient people who I yet the
31:11
apple of his eye
31:13
despite their fallenness we cannot know
31:18
God except in the revelation that comes
31:21
from his long historic dealing with his
31:24
own people and what he will yet do with
31:26
them before the end comes to know God is
31:30
to know him as the God of Israel the God
31:33
of Jacob or we are likely to be forming
31:36
a god of our own image and our own
31:39
making and putting the title Jesus on
31:41
him but I’ll tell you that that is as
31:44
vast a deception as anything that
31:47
Mormons and any sect and any deception
31:54
going I don’t know when it was not too
31:57
long ago I was sitting in a church and
31:59
all of a sudden I was stabbed with the
32:01
thought that we can be completely
32:03
Orthodox in our credo and be as much
32:07
deceived as any Jehovah Witness that
32:10
deception does not require unorthodox
32:14
views you can become deceived in your
32:17
orthodoxy in your kosher beliefs so to
32:20
speak in your statements of faith maybe
32:23
even more deceived because you think
32:26
that that’s your security you have the
32:29
husk of it you have the form of it but
32:32
you have not the essence and the
32:33
vitality
32:34
and the truth of it and that makes the
32:37
truth all the moral I don’t think that
32:41
you’re not a candidate for deception I
32:43
can’t think of any more dangerous
32:45
mentality that we should think ourselves
32:48
safe from deception when the end of the
32:51
age is a wash in deceptions of every
32:56
variety of and kind and seek sin first
33:00
to nullify the church before it even
33:04
infection corrupts the world we need to
33:07
keep our hearts with all diligence and
33:10
need to be sure that the God that we
33:11
celebrate whom we have called Jesus is
33:14
in fact God and not the projection of
33:17
our own imagining who does our bidding
33:19
and serves our convenience you need to
33:23
contend for the faith continually that
33:27
was earnestly once and for all
33:30
given the Saints if you don’t contend
33:32
and fall into a kind of a slipshod easy
33:36
a casualness you’re almost guaranteeing
33:42
your deception I would hate to die in
33:46
that condition because in whatever
33:48
condition we end this life or in the
33:50
Lord’s coming in that condition we
33:53
eternally remain there is no remedy
33:56
there’s a finality there’s closure this
34:00
life is given that we might know God he
34:04
has established the bounds of our
34:06
habitation and made of all nations one
34:08
blood that we might seek after God that
34:13
we might find him who is not far from
34:16
any of us this is the preeminent purpose
34:20
for our being and for our life but we
34:23
have to confess it has not remained
34:26
primary it’s secondary at best it’s been
34:29
lost in the shuffle our car our home our
34:32
family our job our career our vocation
34:35
has pushed out the concern of God you
34:41
need to contend for this faith more than
34:44
just shutting off the TV set it requires
34:46
its removal
34:47
it requires a radical dealing with our
34:51
own flesh or else we will find ourselves
34:54
outside the faith all the time that we
35:00
think they were actually in fact in it
35:02
doesn’t Paul say that the Lord will not
35:04
come before a great falling away
35:06
he uses the word great to show the
35:10
magnitude of this last day’s phenomenon
35:13
called apostasy ax and if you think and
35:17
I say that I’m saying this so many times
35:18
I’m I’m tiring myself to hear myself
35:21
repeat it but you need to hear it if
35:23
it’s a first-time apostasy
35:26
does not mean that you’re necessarily
35:28
outside the church picketing against the
35:30
church and not in your fist against God
35:33
the deadliest apostasy is within the
35:36
church itself sitting in the pews
35:39
putting the dollar in the collection
35:41
plate singing the course is saying yes
35:43
and amen but your heart so far from him
35:47
and you don’t know him as you ought and
35:49
you don’t seek him as you ought the
35:54
great psalm of Psalm 24 who will ascend
35:57
the holy hill of God he who has clean
36:01
hands and a pure heart and is not given
36:03
a soul over to vanity and this is the
36:06
generation it says of them that seek
36:09
they that seek thy face o God of Jacob
36:13
come on Saints how many of us are
36:16
seekers how many of us who are
36:19
conducting worship are worshipers by
36:23
ourselves and without instruments before
36:26
we come up and seek to communicate the
36:29
sense of God to others how many of us
36:33
know what it means to wait on the Lord
36:35
and to come into the sense of his
36:37
presence and can find time for that in
36:41
all of our busy schedule and demand
36:48
to seek Him and to seek thy face is like
36:52
an it added dimension of seeking that
36:56
the mere seeking of God is not enough to
36:58
qualify you for the ascent of the holy
37:00
hill but to seek his face the most
37:02
intimate aspect of God himself I can’t
37:07
think of a greater deterrent for
37:09
deception than the knowledge of God as
37:12
he in fact is and not as we thought him
37:15
to be I’ve been in conferences and
37:18
places of so-called revival as the only
37:21
what shall I say square peg in a round
37:24
hole I’ve been called the wet blanket
37:27
out of the north I sit there with a face
37:30
you know I don’t know what about you but
37:32
what I feel is reflected here I can’t
37:36
compose my face religiously if my spirit
37:39
is numb and Weiss in a man is jangled
37:42
and my alarms are going off of what is
37:44
taking place I’m not going to sit there
37:47
and look ecstatic and it’s painful to be
37:52
the only one in that condition who is
37:54
looking strange and out of it when
37:57
everyone else seems to be inducted and
37:59
having a ball
38:02
you have to jealously keep your sense of
38:06
God in your Center your vital center and
38:11
measure everything that comes to you
38:14
that purports to be God and from God
38:16
against what is already validly
38:18
established by God in your history with
38:21
him through his dealings and the work of
38:24
the Cross have you a history how then
38:29
shall you stand in the last days when
38:31
those who overcome overcome by the blood
38:33
of the Lamb and the word of their
38:35
testimony and I’m not talking about I
38:40
just want to say I love the lamb Aaron
38:42
that’s nobody’s talking about the word
38:45
of the testimony is the history of God’s
38:48
demonstrated faithfulness in his many
38:53
interventions when we have allowed him
38:55
to bring us into desperate straits where
38:58
if God be not God we perish
39:01
you got a history like that or has your
39:04
life been so circumspect so ordered so
39:06
nicely contained that has had no
39:10
opportunity to open you to dimensions of
39:13
experience in the revelation of the
39:15
knowledge of him that would be your end
39:18
time provision to stand you don’t have
39:23
to be in hazardous places to experience
39:26
the cross and the trials of God and the
39:30
dealings of God right where you are
39:33
right behind your own closed doors and
39:36
the shades right within your marriage
39:39
family right within your employment
39:42
situation within your body and its
39:44
health God has ways of dealing and
39:49
bringing that knowledge of him in the
39:51
Fellowship of his sufferings I had a
39:56
night before last night last night I
39:59
slept the praise God but the night
40:02
before none of you would ever want to
40:04
experience to say that it was hell is
40:07
not an exaggeration to say that I was
40:10
stretched out and broken up to pieces
40:12
and crunched and flattened as if I had
40:15
been run over by a Mack truck is not an
40:17
exaggeration to say that my mind was
40:20
unbearably being played upon with erotic
40:23
images of things that I should have
40:25
found detestable and protested but was
40:29
so powerful that I could not blot them
40:31
out of my consciousness I was skewered I
40:34
was roasted over the fire all the night
40:36
long and that night was not as bad as
40:39
the one that I experienced in Manila
40:41
only weeks ago how is it that God allows
40:45
that it has something to do with
40:49
yesterday and the messages that were
40:52
given in a condition of sleeplessness
40:55
and utter weakness and pounding headache
40:59
all through the day there’s a suffering
41:02
Saints Saints that needs to be filled up
41:04
in and by the church that remains and I
41:10
meet every now and then an agonized soul
41:13
who cannot bear it a moment
41:14
they cannot take conventional Church
41:18
even in its best charismatic and
41:21
Pentecostal forms and they’re just being
41:23
shredded by the pain of it and I have
41:27
often to counsel them until God releases
41:29
you bear it the very bearing of the pain
41:34
of the church the suffering of what the
41:37
church presently is in the anguish of
41:40
your spirit because you know it’s so far
41:43
removed from the reality of God is
41:45
something that has to be borne and
41:48
because you’ll bear it and pray out of
41:51
it for God’s intervention there’s a hope
41:54
that it might come and when God sees
41:57
that that hope is spent and that the
41:59
people are deaf and want not to hear but
42:02
to continue in your practices he’ll
42:04
release that suffering Saint from that
42:07
anguish have you suffered for the church
42:10
you know that churches are suffering
42:12
before it’s a glory if your church
42:15
experience has not brought you a measure
42:17
of pain and suffering and confrontation
42:19
and collision and abrasion and
42:21
irritation and and all the kinds of
42:24
things that can only come from Saints
42:26
you’re not in church you’re in some kind
42:29
of Sunday institutional setting that has
42:32
got it and protected you from the very
42:34
thing that God has calculated you to
42:36
experience churches are suffering before
42:40
it’s our glory and it’s unnecessary
42:42
suffering because it’s a preparation for
42:45
eternity are you are you ready now to
42:48
rule and reign with Christ come on your
42:51
kids are talking back to you and are
42:54
snotty and rebellious taking liberties
42:57
that were unheard of a decade ago and
42:59
this is happening everywhere we’re not
43:02
even able to rule our own houses well
43:05
are we going to rule and reign with
43:08
Christ our pastors are running off with
43:11
Organists there’s fornication divorce
43:13
and remarriage is as common in the
43:14
church in my country I don’t know about
43:16
yours as as with the world
43:22
we have not welcomed the disciplines of
43:24
God we have not been jealous for his
43:27
name and honor we’ve allowed things to
43:30
slip we’re not invited to put to
43:33
participate in the kinds of decisions
43:35
that we would require of us a seeking of
43:38
God for wisdom we actually prefer
43:41
anonymity we like to remain faceless in
43:45
the pew and just put our few dollars in
43:48
the collection plate and pay the expense
43:50
of having somebody else do it but but
43:54
Paul says when you come together each
43:56
one has a tongue and interpretation a
44:01
prophecy a revelation of him asam that’s
44:05
how the church was enriched at the first
44:07
it was not impoverished as it is today
44:11
with a bunch of blank Saints who are
44:13
incapable of bringing anything into the
44:16
church and into its life that might
44:18
enrich the body they don’t even see
44:20
themselves as the body they may use the
44:23
the language of the body but are they
44:25
Abadi in the organic and authentic sense
44:28
so long as we are conglomerates of in
44:30
the individuality and private ISM no
44:35
wonder that we don’t have to share and
44:37
we have not besought ourselves to have
44:39
something either we’re right up to the
44:42
TV set watching The Late Late Show and
44:44
the last thing on Saturday night or the
44:47
sports or whatever it is and then come
44:49
to the Sunday morning service hoping
44:51
that some spiritual roulette will take
44:53
place able to pierce our denseness by
44:56
the man whom we’re paying to do it and
44:58
if he doesn’t succeed we’ll find another
45:00
oh no wonder my Jewish people languish
45:06
still waiting to be made jealous by
45:10
nothing that has yet come from the
45:11
church historically that even begins
45:15
to touch that
45:27
we have forgotten who Jesus is as the
45:31
Messiah of Israel and when Paul says so
45:36
then in chapter 2 verse 19 you are no
45:39
longer strangers and aliens but you are
45:42
fellow citizens with the Saints which
45:46
sense the Saints who were already Saints
45:50
before you came on the scene who were
45:52
Jewish you are fellow Saints with them
45:55
and citizens with them in their already
45:59
existing Commonwealth of Israel and are
46:03
of God’s household and he repeats it
46:06
again in chapter 3 verse 6 that to be
46:09
specific that the Gentiles are fellow
46:11
heirs and fellow members of the body
46:14
which body the body that existed and had
46:18
its historical continuance before you
46:20
were ever invited to be part you are the
46:24
continuation not an innovation of
46:26
something that already was it was the
46:29
household of God
46:30
it was the Assembly of the righteous
46:37
your fellow partakers of the promise in
46:42
Christ Jesus through our gospel I still
46:46
like
46:53
listen to Paul in the first verses of
46:56
the book of Romans Paul a servant of
46:59
Yeshua HaMashiach Jesus the Messiah
47:03
called to be an apostle separated unto
47:06
the gospel of God which he had promised
47:09
afore by his prophets in the Holy Jewish
47:14
scriptures to Israel I am embellishing
47:19
I’m adding a word here there without any
47:22
fear that lightning is going to come
47:24
through the ceiling it strike me because
47:27
I think what I’m adding though Paul does
47:29
not say it you know why it was so well
47:32
understood at that time but now it needs
47:35
to be explicitly stated for we have
47:38
forgotten and that’s why Paul says in
47:40
Ephesians now remember remember remember
47:43
that you who have far off have been
47:45
brought nigh this gospel is not some New
47:52
Testament innovation apart from and
47:55
different than other than the whole
47:57
counsel of God that was waiting for a
48:00
messiah to bring deliverance from sin
48:03
and fulfillment and entry into a kingdom
48:05
which was promised Israel which he had
48:10
promised before by his prophets his
48:14
Jewish prophets in the Holy Scriptures
48:17
the Jewish Scriptures concerning his son
48:20
Yeshua HaMashiach our Lord which was
48:24
made of the seed of David according to
48:27
the flesh and declared to be the Son of
48:29
God with power according to the ruach
48:32
ha’qodesh
48:33
the spirit of holiness by the
48:35
resurrection from the dead
48:36
you want to know Saints in my 34th year
48:40
hardboiled antagonistic Jewish atheist
48:44
cynic and antagonists to Christianity I
48:48
wouldn’t have allowed your existence you
48:51
wouldn’t you not to me some harmless
48:53
relic culture you were an impediment to
48:56
the progress of mankind that needs to be
48:58
abolished
48:59
I would I would have come at you with
49:01
the same threatenings and murdering
49:02
as a soul of old but when I picked up
49:08
the New Testament for the first time a
49:10
history teacher schooled at the
49:13
University of California at Berkeley to
49:16
study documents when I picked up this
49:19
document and began reading it for the
49:21
first time the first thought that struck
49:23
me despite all my Jewish prejudice
49:26
against Christ was this is a Jewish book
49:29
they know that we don’t even call our
49:31
children Peter or John or James because
49:34
we think they are quote Christian names
49:37
but when you read about them my god
49:40
there is as Jewish as the day is long
49:42
the whole book is suffused with things
49:45
that are so patently Jewish – anyone who
49:49
can see it and the most Jewish of all is
49:51
Yeshua HaMashiach Jesus the Christ the
49:54
Holy One of Israel it was an
49:58
astonishment for me because every
50:01
depiction of Jesus that I had seen in my
50:03
first 34 years living in Christian
50:05
America was a complete contradiction to
50:08
anything that I could have Jewishly
50:10
understood listen dear Saints you’re not
50:13
saved for yourself Paul says in Romans
50:17
11 have they stumbled that they should
50:19
fall is God finished with them are they
50:21
permanently out of his purposes god
50:23
forbid you should think that for through
50:25
their fall salvation has come to the
50:28
Gentiles so as to move them to jealousy
50:32
you have a purpose for your salvation
50:35
beyond yourself and praise God for that
50:39
or else you would again fall into an
50:42
inevitable spiritual egocentrism where
50:46
all you know is yourself isn’t that true
50:48
now what’s the first thing you’re going
50:50
to say when you leave this building how
50:52
did you like the service how did you
50:54
like the speaker where are we going to
50:56
eat
50:57
me me me my my my how did I like how did
51:01
you like everything is predicated from
51:03
the perspective of the vantage point of
51:06
self the very thing which God calls us
51:09
to be delivered this is his salvation to
51:13
the uttermost we’re still steeped in it
51:16
not so much now carnal things in the
51:18
world but religious things and spiritual
51:20
things but just as deadly if we are the
51:22
center and we will remain that until we
51:26
have an understanding there’s a purpose
51:28
for our salvation beyond ourselves
51:31
it’s to the ancient people and their
51:33
descendants from whom we have derived
51:36
our faith we owe them something who have
51:39
been grafted into their root and the
51:42
only way we can pay it is by a
51:44
demonstration of something so invincibly
51:48
and clearly Hebraic coming from Gentiles
51:52
that it will stagger them as they view
51:56
it that’s why Paul could say to the
51:59
church now don’t do it those Gentiles do
52:02
and what I say to you you’re far too
52:05
Gentile you’ve lost the sense that your
52:11
God is the God of Jacob or you’ve never
52:13
understood him as that and this is not a
52:16
little appellation this is God’s self
52:20
chosen designation by which he insists
52:23
he be known and if you don’t know him in
52:26
that way you’re already underground for
52:28
deception you’re already a candidate to
52:30
fill in your own image of God for you
52:33
forgotten whose God he in fact is and
52:36
insist that it be hey be recognized
52:49
so Jesus is not just any man the
52:52
church’s whole doctrine of the
52:54
Incarnation and the atonement becomes
52:56
abstract and valueless and meaningless
52:59
to the extent that this comes to be
53:02
regarded as something accidental and
53:04
incidental and not a man in in general a
53:07
neutral man but the conclusion and some
53:10
of the history of God with the people of
53:12
Israel only call but could say that but
53:16
what remains for us is are we able to
53:19
understand what he is saying and take it
53:22
to heart
53:23
have we fallen so low that we are
53:26
incapable of understanding the gifted
53:30
men whom God has given to the church to
53:32
challenge and to keep the true faith
53:34
alive they’re only saying here that the
53:37
very sacred foundational doctrines of
53:39
the faith atonement itself can become
53:47
abstract and valueless and meaningless
53:50
to the extent that Jesus is considered
53:53
some neutral man rather than the sum and
53:57
the substance of the history of God with
53:59
the people of Israel the one who
54:02
fulfills the covenant made by God with
54:05
this people and it is as such that he is
54:08
the obedient son and servant of God he
54:11
comes as a messiah to fulfill prophecy
54:14
and to fulfill the things that the
54:19
father has established in what has been
54:21
promised to this nation as of old who
54:24
had to be born in a certain place in
54:26
time and serve with a certain character
54:28
and fulfill a certain destiny as it
54:31
pertains to the people Israel this was
54:34
so clear to the apostles and disciples
54:36
of the early faith that Peter required a
54:39
supernatural revelation from God in a
54:42
trance to begin to open the possibility
54:45
for him that this faith is also to be
54:48
made available to non-jews a sheet had
54:52
to come down in a trance with unclean
54:54
animals and the voice of God speaking
54:57
out and saying Peter taken Heat
55:00
and Peter complaining is an Orthodox Jew
55:02
but God I’ve never eaten anything
55:05
unclean and God said what I have made
55:08
clean called down not unclean and I
55:10
think it’s repeated three times so
55:13
obdurate and stiff was Peter in his
55:16
Jewish understanding this was their
55:19
faith this was their fulfillment they
55:21
never thought that it had anything to do
55:23
with the goyim with the the heathen he
55:28
had have a trance of vision in a trance
55:30
and while he was awakening there were
55:32
the men down below Gentiles coming to
55:35
take him to the house of a Gentile which
55:38
he would never have entered as an
55:39
Orthodox Jew but he could now freely
55:42
enter and freely share the gospel and
55:45
the good news and before he could get
55:47
the whole message out of his mouth the
55:49
Holy Spirit fell on them all so how can
55:53
we deny them water who have received the
55:57
gift that has come to us clearly we
56:00
perceive that God is opening the door to
56:03
the righteous of all nations that the
56:06
Gentiles are also welcomed in you know
56:09
if you knew that you would have a sense
56:11
of gratitude for those Jewish men who
56:15
have preceded you the prophets and the
56:17
apostles who have protected and got it
56:19
and kept the faith
56:20
much more diligently than you are
56:22
presently doing and out of a sense of
56:26
obligation for the inheritance and the
56:29
treasure that has come to you you would
56:31
nurture it and got it and make it known
56:33
to those who now though they are Jews
56:36
are without God and without hope in the
56:38
world being far off in their worldly
56:43
secular rabbinical judaism or
56:46
philosophies or whatsoever but are apart
56:50
from God can you see the mystery of God
56:52
we’ve come full circle you were once far
56:55
off now they are far off and how did he
56:58
be brought back and be grafted into
57:00
their own root by the demonstration made
57:03
by you corporately as the church in such
57:08
an unmistakable way that they though
57:10
they had been hostile enemies of the
57:13
gospel
57:14
must recognize that what you have is
57:17
their God the unmistakable evidence the
57:21
effulgence of God the holiness of God
57:25
that no matter how dark they are in the
57:27
atheism and unbelief when they see it
57:30
particularly as it is expressed through
57:32
Gentiles they must fall before that
57:35
demonstration it is the ultimate witness
57:37
of God it’s the light that lightens the
57:39
Gentiles is the glory of the God of
57:43
Israel how’s your light this morning
57:46
since have you been jealous over it do
57:50
you do you cry out light more light are
57:53
you the kind of fool that I am that I
57:55
cannot even eat a meal in a restaurant
57:56
that is and called atmospheric I ask for
58:01
light light more light and we would have
58:07
had a devastating empty nothing day
58:08
yesterday if I had not my brothers to
58:11
pray with me and I could share with them
58:13
in detail the horror of the kinds of
58:16
erotic things that were passing through
58:19
mice semi-sleep awake consciousness for
58:24
which I needed prayer and purging and
58:26
that the darkness of it must flee when
58:30
it is brought into the light as he is in
58:32
the light I did not receive my baptism
58:36
in the Holy Spirit in the Pentecostal
58:37
church which I attended because the
58:40
Spirit of God was grieved by the kind of
58:44
situation that prevailed there
58:45
resentments broken relationships that
58:48
had gone on for decades people would not
58:51
leave the same door together I got my
58:53
baptism in the spirit on a sloping farm
58:56
floor with a bunch of slapdash saints
59:00
who had no distinction but one thing
59:03
they loved Israel and in that love and
59:06
in that presence the moment that they
59:08
laid hands on me boom something broke
59:11
and went that I had been seeking a year
59:14
to it to a loosen to obtain instantly
59:18
the hard thing crumbled and granulated
59:20
and poured out of my mouth with sobs of
59:23
a convulsive kind that I could not
59:24
control
59:25
and and when this was emptied and I
59:27
stood before God in came a filling from
59:30
within and when it reached my mouth boom
59:32
out came the heavenly language and I’ve
59:35
been his fool from that time I could not
59:38
obtain it in the Pentecostal church what
59:41
a statement of how far from the light we
59:44
are
59:45
listen Saints wear the ground and pillar
59:48
of truth we are reality itself we have a
59:51
God who himself is truth contend for
59:55
that faith keep it secret pursue it seek
59:59
his face be ruthless against your own
60:01
flesh make time for him don’t go along
60:05
with the crowd don’t go along with the
60:07
established forms don’t fall into the
60:09
rut every that everyone else is doing
60:11
come and wait on the Lord in silence
60:14
Coulomb auditorium on your worship
60:16
let the Lord restore the sense of
60:20
himself that you might worship Him in
60:22
spirit and in truth and the rest will
60:25
follow let’s pray
60:31
[Music]
60:32
well I thank you Lord that I was totally
60:35
empty this morning and uninspired had
60:37
nothing to say no message but I came and
60:42
believe Lord that you’re not only
60:44
speaking to this immediate people but
60:47
through the tapes being made to a much
60:50
vaster audience who are essentially in
60:53
the same melancholy condition Lord will
60:59
you forgive us that you you had to come
61:02
and jar us to awake for us to be aware
61:05
of the kind of liberties that we have
61:07
taken with you that we were going on
61:09
with business as usual and even getting
61:12
to enjoy it and thought we would do new
61:14
service by turning the amplifiers up
61:17
we’re so removed by God from where we
61:20
need to be and we ask your forgiveness
61:23
for that departure the erosion of true
61:26
faith over the years until we have just
61:29
become a religious form
61:37
forgive us all that my god and take away
61:39
the clutter the debris the things that
61:43
have dulled our spirit and bring us to a
61:47
place before you that perchance should
61:53
you be gracious you will allow the sense
61:56
of yourself again to touch our heart our
62:00
spirit our consciousness our
62:02
understanding and when it comes Lord we
62:05
will cherish it we will got it we will
62:07
keep it we will not allow it my God to
62:10
be compromised
62:12
we will not be open for any new thing
62:15
that comes down the way that everybody
62:17
seems to be celebrating help us to be a
62:20
people for your name and Lord there not
62:23
many Jews roundabout but we have a sense
62:26
that if we will come to the place where
62:28
we will demonstrate and exhibit you as
62:32
the God of Israel you’ll bring them to
62:34
us you’ll make all prayers effectual in
62:38
their behalf and you’ll work something
62:40
my god that will conclude this age and
62:42
bring your coming and your kingdom seal
62:46
up these words for us Lord may we not go
62:48
from them to our where we’re going to
62:52
eat what we’re going to do to our sport
62:55
well pleasure
62:56
let there be something sullen that has
62:59
entered our heart and spirit let it
63:02
reverberate in our hearts my God let it
63:04
continue to speak to us let us ponder it
63:07
let us find a private place somewhere
63:09
today where we can go down on our knees
63:11
go down on our faces and just stretch
63:14
and prostrate ourselves out before you
63:16
we’re not asking for anything look we’re
63:19
not wanting something from you that we
63:22
have terms and conditions and that’s why
63:25
we’re coming before you
63:26
we’re coming before you because you’re
63:28
God you don’t have to give us anything
63:31
in return there doesn’t have to be a
63:33
benefit that accrues to us we seek your
63:36
face because you’re God because you
63:38
deserve to be sought you’re the Holy One
63:42
come precious God bless this people
63:46
let this be a watershed for them a
63:48
turning point to save them from falling
63:52
my god into the mechanical form of
63:54
things that makes everything the same
63:57
everywhere let them be the distinctive
63:59
people of God of this community and this
64:03
locality of this nation that turns the
64:05
head not only of Jews but of the
64:08
unbelieving Gentiles as well for
64:11
whatever will make a Jew jealous will
64:13
certainly affect a non Jew powerfully I
64:16
bless them Lord with these words seal
64:19
them let not a syllable fall to the
64:21
floor bring it to there recall again and
64:24
again bring repentance bring restoration
64:27
come my God in these last days and be
64:30
our God and we will be your people in
64:33
Jesus name we pray
64:35
keep your head bowed don’t look up talk
64:41
to the Lord out of your deepest heart
64:47
transact something with him he’s a God
64:50
of truth he’s waiting only for your
64:52
acknowledgement that you’ve been
64:55
slipshod and careless and indifferent
64:59
let him know that that you liked the
65:02
easy way that you didn’t want to be
65:05
required of that you preferred anonymity
65:08
in the pew while someone else did it and
65:12
conducted the service
65:21
he’s a deep calling on too deep speak to
65:26
him from that place answer him who has
65:30
spoken to you from the deeps I let
65:34
something begin that is a day of new
65:36
beginning that will guarantee an
65:39
eternity of a much brighter and precious
65:42
kind
65:56
you
66:01
[Music]
66:04
you
66:14
