  • 00:00:06.090 --> 00:00:12.080

  • 00:00:18.090 --> 00:00:23.090
  • Allen Jackson: In John's Gospel, it's gonna be our primary source
  • 00:00:25.060 --> 00:00:29.100
  • for Scripture today.
  • 00:00:29.110 --> 00:00:31.150
  • There's a long discourse that Jesus has with his disciples;
  • 00:00:31.160 --> 00:00:34.210
  • there's three or four chapters committed to it where he's
  • 00:00:34.220 --> 00:00:37.210
  • saying to them, I'm going away and where I'm going you can't
  • 00:00:37.220 --> 00:00:39.230
  • come but I'm gonna send you another helper and his name is
  • 00:00:39.240 --> 00:00:42.150
  • the Holy Spirit and you'd be better off when easier than when
  • 00:00:42.160 --> 00:00:44.140
  • I'm here.
  • 00:00:44.150 --> 00:00:45.270
  • And the disciples are having a hard time believing that but
  • 00:00:45.280 --> 00:00:48.090
  • we get to listen in to this discussion.
  • 00:00:48.100 --> 00:00:49.240
  • John 14.
  • 00:00:49.250 --> 00:00:51.060
  • Jesus said, "I'll ask the Father and he'll give you another
  • 00:00:51.070 --> 00:00:52.220
  • counselor to be with you forever: the spirit of truth.
  • 00:00:52.230 --> 00:00:56.110
  • The world cannot accept him because it neither sees him
  • 00:00:56.120 --> 00:00:58.220
  • nor knows him, but you know him; for he lives with you and he
  • 00:00:58.230 --> 00:01:03.170
  • will be in you."
  • 00:01:03.180 --> 00:01:04.270
  • And I like the spatial language there.
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:06.200
  • It's helpful to me that the Holy Spirit is with us, around us,
  • 00:01:06.210 --> 00:01:11.170
  • present with us; he's on the journey with us and he's
  • 00:01:11.180 --> 00:01:15.120
  • in you.
  • 00:01:15.130 --> 00:01:16.280
  • So you don't leave him here, it's not about a location
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:20.000
  • any longer.
  • 00:01:20.010 --> 00:01:21.200
  • He's in you, but when two or three of us are gathered
  • 00:01:21.210 --> 00:01:24.040
  • together he's with us.
  • 00:01:24.050 --> 00:01:26.190
  • What an amazing amazing perspective, and I want you
  • 00:01:26.200 --> 00:01:30.010
  • to learn to hold that.
  • 00:01:30.020 --> 00:01:32.010
  • Never to take it for granted.
  • 00:01:32.020 --> 00:01:33.130
  • Samson didn't understand when the Holy Spirit was no longer
  • 00:01:33.140 --> 00:01:35.210
  • with him.
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:37.020
  • And he lost almost everything.
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:40.210
  • Alright, now, there's three or four pieces I just want
  • 00:01:40.220 --> 00:01:42.250
  • to add to this introduction.
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:44.220
  • One is that the Spirit of God came with a specific revelation
  • 00:01:44.230 --> 00:01:48.140
  • in the Earth.
  • 00:01:48.150 --> 00:01:50.070
  • But before we look at that I would submit to you that Jesus
  • 00:01:50.080 --> 00:01:53.030
  • came to the Earth with a very specific revelation from God
  • 00:01:53.040 --> 00:01:57.290
  • for humanity.
  • 00:01:58.000 --> 00:02:00.050
  • Look in John 17 in verse 6.
  • 00:02:00.060 --> 00:02:02.180
  • Jesus said, "I have revealed you to those whom you gave me
  • 00:02:02.190 --> 00:02:05.210
  • out of the world."
  • 00:02:05.220 --> 00:02:07.140
  • What did Jesus revealed?
  • 00:02:07.150 --> 00:02:09.100
  • God the Father.
  • 00:02:09.110 --> 00:02:11.030
  • Prior to Jesus coming God was largely unknown.
  • 00:02:11.040 --> 00:02:14.280
  • We knew his voice, we knew his instructions, we knew of him
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:18.230
  • through the prophets, but Jesus came with a totally different
  • 00:02:18.240 --> 00:02:22.100
  • revelation of Almighty God, didn't he?
  • 00:02:22.110 --> 00:02:25.190
  • Look in John 14.
  • 00:02:25.200 --> 00:02:27.010
  • Jesus said, "Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father."
  • 00:02:27.020 --> 00:02:30.140
  • Well, up until Jesus came nobody had seen the Father.
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:35.000
  • In that sense, he was unknowable.
  • 00:02:35.010 --> 00:02:37.150
  • In the book of Hebrews it says that in the previous times God
  • 00:02:37.160 --> 00:02:41.070
  • had spoken to us in many ways: through the prophets,
  • 00:02:41.080 --> 00:02:45.180
  • through signs, and through wonders,
  • 00:02:45.190 --> 00:02:47.120
  • but in these last days he's spoken to us through his son.
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:52.150
  • Now that's a totally different understanding.
  • 00:02:52.160 --> 00:02:55.050
  • You may be--you may have a friend, you may have
  • 00:02:55.060 --> 00:02:57.170
  • an acquaintance, but when the son speaks about the father,
  • 00:02:57.180 --> 00:03:00.180
  • it's a different insight.
  • 00:03:00.190 --> 00:03:02.290
  • And then it says in Hebrews 1 that he was the exact
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:05.270
  • representation of his being.
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:08.130
  • Jesus came that we might know God the Father.
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:11.290
  • We might know what he thought about sickness or disease.
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:14.160
  • He gave us a revelation of the insight and character
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:17.160
  • of God.
  • 00:03:17.170 --> 00:03:19.110
  • True?
  • 00:03:19.120 --> 00:03:21.020
  • Okay, you're with me.
  • 00:03:21.030 --> 00:03:22.200
  • Well the Holy Spirit came with a revelation of his own
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:26.000
  • just as it is unique and just as significant.
  • 00:03:26.010 --> 00:03:30.070
  • In John 15 and verse 26, it says, "When the counselor comes,
  • 00:03:30.080 --> 00:03:34.020
  • who I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit
  • 00:03:34.030 --> 00:03:36.190
  • of truth, who goes out from the Father, he will
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:39.140
  • testify about me."
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:41.250
  • The revelation that the Holy Spirit brings to the Earth is
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:44.260
  • a revelation of Jesus.
  • 00:03:44.270 --> 00:03:47.110
  • Who he is and what he's accomplished on our behalf.
  • 00:03:47.120 --> 00:03:51.270
  • Now the skeptics will say, "Well, pastor I've got
  • 00:03:51.280 --> 00:03:53.120
  • the gospels.
  • 00:03:53.130 --> 00:03:54.220
  • I can read the gospels and get to that revelation.
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:56.230
  • I don't need help."
  • 00:03:56.240 --> 00:03:59.000
  • Oh, bless your little stubborn hearts.
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:02.100
  • I would say to you we can say the same thing about the
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:04.120
  • Hebrew Bible.
  • 00:04:04.130 --> 00:04:06.030
  • We can read the prophets and the Psalms and the book
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:08.010
  • of Genesis and we can learn about God.
  • 00:04:08.020 --> 00:04:10.010
  • I don't need Jesus to give me that revelation.
  • 00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:17.060
  • See, I think we have relegated the Holy Spirit to a place
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:19.220
  • of insignificance, ignoring the counsel of Scripture.
  • 00:04:19.230 --> 00:04:24.240
  • I wanna introduce you to him.
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:28.050
  • I would also suggest to you that just as God sent Jesus
  • 00:04:28.060 --> 00:04:31.040
  • into the world, he sent his Spirit into the world.
  • 00:04:31.050 --> 00:04:37.050
  • In John 16 in verse 5 Jesus said, "I'm going to him
  • 00:04:37.160 --> 00:04:42.050
  • who sent me."
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:43.190
  • Jesus understood that God the Father had sent him
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:47.120
  • into the world.
  • 00:04:47.130 --> 00:04:49.070
  • That was just a casual review of what you know about your
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:51.150
  • Bibles, you'll think of many places where that is
  • 00:04:51.160 --> 00:04:53.190
  • underscored.
  • 00:04:53.200 --> 00:04:55.030
  • In Philippians chapter 2 it says that Jesus didn't think equality
  • 00:04:55.040 --> 00:04:58.260
  • with God something to be grasped so he made himself nothing.
  • 00:04:58.270 --> 00:05:02.170
  • And he humbled himself and became obedient.
  • 00:05:02.180 --> 00:05:05.060
  • And came and became one of us.
  • 00:05:05.070 --> 00:05:07.080
  • God sent him here on an assignment agreed?
  • 00:05:07.090 --> 00:05:11.130
  • All right, look in John 14.
  • 00:05:11.140 --> 00:05:14.040
  • This is Jesus speaking he said, "The helper the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:17.120
  • whom the Father will send in my name.
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:20.270
  • He will teach you all things and bring to remembrance all
  • 00:05:20.280 --> 00:05:24.110
  • that I said to you."
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:26.030
  • Again, the focus of the Holy Spirit is on the person
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:28.180
  • and the work of Jesus.
  • 00:05:28.190 --> 00:05:29.290
  • If you wanna attract the Spirit of God into your life you begin
  • 00:05:30.000 --> 00:05:33.270
  • to elevate Jesus.
  • 00:05:33.280 --> 00:05:36.200
  • That's why I like Jesus is Lord.
  • 00:05:36.210 --> 00:05:39.010
  • I want to be identified with that idea.
  • 00:05:39.020 --> 00:05:42.000
  • I want to be fully linked to that concept because it
  • 00:05:42.010 --> 00:05:45.290
  • attracts the person of the Holy Spirit, just as God sent Jesus
  • 00:05:46.000 --> 00:05:50.130
  • his son, he sent the Holy Spirit into the Earth.
  • 00:05:50.140 --> 00:05:54.250
  • Now I wanna ask you a question for a moment.
  • 00:05:54.260 --> 00:05:57.120
  • What do you suppose is the most important arrival--human
  • 00:05:57.130 --> 00:06:00.100
  • arrival in the history of humanity?
  • 00:06:00.110 --> 00:06:05.170
  • Newton?
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:08.000
  • Einstein?
  • 00:06:08.010 --> 00:06:10.080
  • Michelangelo?
  • 00:06:10.090 --> 00:06:12.120
  • What's the most important human arrival?
  • 00:06:12.130 --> 00:06:16.060
  • Jesus.
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.160
  • You're in church on Sunday morning, but yeah, I would agree
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:21.130
  • just think of your holiday schedule.
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:24.110
  • Still taking days off for Jesus, decorating your house for Jesus,
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:28.150
  • reorienting your life for Jesus, not so much Einstein.
  • 00:06:28.160 --> 00:06:34.060
  • I'm not against him, but I would submit--I would agree with your
  • 00:06:34.070 --> 00:06:36.210
  • analysis that Jesus is the most important arrival we've
  • 00:06:36.220 --> 00:06:40.000
  • ever known.
  • 00:06:40.010 --> 00:06:42.060
  • But he's not the only important arrival.
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:44.130
  • Look in John 16.
  • 00:06:44.140 --> 00:06:47.000
  • Jesus is speaking, he said, "I tell you the truth."
  • 00:06:47.010 --> 00:06:49.060
  • And by now you know your Bible well enough when Jesus starts
  • 00:06:49.070 --> 00:06:51.130
  • a phrase with "I tell you the truth," you know he's
  • 00:06:51.140 --> 00:06:53.130
  • about to drop something on you that is unbelievable.
  • 00:06:53.140 --> 00:06:56.240
  • So he starts it with, "I'm telling you the truth."
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:07:00.110
  • I tell you the truth, it's for your good that I'm
  • 00:07:00.120 --> 00:07:02.290
  • going away.
  • 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:04.220
  • And the stuff we he's talking to his disciples.
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:06.100
  • This is Peter James and John and Mary and the crew.
  • 00:07:06.110 --> 00:07:11.250
  • And he says I'm leaving and it's better for you.
  • 00:07:11.260 --> 00:07:15.280
  • Can you see the eye rolls?
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:18.110
  • Whatever.
  • 00:07:18.120 --> 00:07:20.020
  • This is not what they signed up for.
  • 00:07:20.030 --> 00:07:22.290
  • When Jesus recruited them he said, "Follow me and I'll make
  • 00:07:23.000 --> 00:07:25.070
  • you fishers of men."
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:26.180
  • And a handful of people accepted that invitation and they walked
  • 00:07:26.190 --> 00:07:29.110
  • away from businesses and families and lives--totally
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:32.160
  • reoriented their world and followed Jesus.
  • 00:07:32.170 --> 00:07:36.010
  • And they've had the most extraordinary three years.
  • 00:07:36.020 --> 00:07:37.250
  • They've seen him walk on the water, they've seen him
  • 00:07:37.260 --> 00:07:39.240
  • make wine out of water at a wedding--that will get
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:42.150
  • you invited.
  • 00:07:42.160 --> 00:07:45.180
  • They've seen him raise the dead and speak to storms and talk
  • 00:07:45.190 --> 00:07:48.190
  • to demons.
  • 00:07:48.200 --> 00:07:50.000
  • They've never known anybody like him; they are all in.
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:53.170
  • And now Jesus sits down with them and he said
  • 00:07:53.180 --> 00:07:55.110
  • listen, I'm going away and it's good for you.
  • 00:07:55.120 --> 00:08:01.130
  • They're having a hard time with that.
  • 00:08:02.060 --> 00:08:04.050
  • He said, "Unless I go away, the counselor will not come
  • 00:08:04.060 --> 00:08:06.240
  • to you."
  • 00:08:06.250 --> 00:08:08.050
  • He said there's an exchange gonna be made: I'm going, he's
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:09.150
  • coming.
  • 00:08:09.160 --> 00:08:11.120
  • But if I go I'll send him to you.
  • 00:08:11.130 --> 00:08:14.090
  • When he comes he will convict the world of guilt in regard
  • 00:08:14.100 --> 00:08:18.080
  • to sin and righteousness and judgment.
  • 00:08:18.090 --> 00:08:19.220
  • "When he comes."
  • 00:08:19.230 --> 00:08:21.020
  • Circle those three words.
  • 00:08:21.030 --> 00:08:22.130
  • When he comes.
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:23.230
  • Not here yet.
  • 00:08:23.240 --> 00:08:26.090
  • Not here yet in the way he's gonna be.
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:29.120
  • Now some of you say, "Wait a minute pastor, the Spirit
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:31.150
  • of God is present throughout Scripture."
  • 00:08:31.160 --> 00:08:33.090
  • I agree with you.
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:34.200
  • He's in the first chapter of Genesis hovering
  • 00:08:34.210 --> 00:08:36.100
  • over the face of the deep.
  • 00:08:36.110 --> 00:08:39.260
  • But he's coming in a new way.
  • 00:08:39.270 --> 00:08:42.240
  • That's what Jesus said.
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:44.150
  • See, I would submit to you Jesus was here before Bethlehem.
  • 00:08:44.160 --> 00:08:50.000
  • There's any number of places in the Old Testament Jesus
  • 00:08:50.010 --> 00:08:52.160
  • stepped into time and history for a moment.
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:57.140
  • But in Bethlehem everything changed.
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:08:59.010
  • He came to be among us; he came to be with us, right?
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:05.030
  • So Jesus said the Holy Spirit's coming.
  • 00:09:05.220 --> 00:09:07.260
  • Same chapter, John 16, a little later in the discussion he said
  • 00:09:07.270 --> 00:09:10.140
  • I've got much more to say to you more than you can now bear.
  • 00:09:10.150 --> 00:09:14.060
  • Said you're emotionally-- or you're you're stuck
  • 00:09:14.070 --> 00:09:15.210
  • on the fact that I'm leaving.
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:17.010
  • You can't hear anymore.
  • 00:09:17.020 --> 00:09:18.120
  • But you're not trained up enough yet, you're not ready for what
  • 00:09:18.130 --> 00:09:20.220
  • you've got to do.
  • 00:09:20.230 --> 00:09:22.020
  • You got a lot more you need to learn.
  • 00:09:22.030 --> 00:09:25.050
  • I've got much more to say to you.
  • 00:09:25.060 --> 00:09:27.270
  • "But when he the Spirit of truth comes," he's not here yet, "but
  • 00:09:27.280 --> 00:09:32.130
  • when he comes he will guide you into all truth.
  • 00:09:32.140 --> 00:09:36.060
  • He won't speak on his own, he'll speak only what he hears
  • 00:09:36.070 --> 00:09:38.130
  • and he'll tell you what is yet to come."
  • 00:09:38.140 --> 00:09:42.230
  • You said to me a moment ago that you thought the most important
  • 00:09:42.240 --> 00:09:45.040
  • arrival was Jesus.
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:46.140
  • That's Bethlehem, right?
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:48.130
  • I didn't put this little part in your notes 'cause if I put it
  • 00:09:48.140 --> 00:09:50.290
  • in your notes was afraid I'd never get out of it.
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:54.120
  • But I want to draw a parallel with you between Bethlehem,
  • 00:09:54.130 --> 00:09:57.040
  • Jesus's arrival in Bethlehem, and the Holy Spirit's arrival
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:10:00.250
  • in Acts chapter 2.
  • 00:10:00.260 --> 00:10:04.050
  • A parallel between Jesus coming in Bethlehem and the Holy
  • 00:10:04.060 --> 00:10:07.150
  • Spirit's coming on the day of Pentecost.
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:10.080
  • It's a holiday.
  • 00:10:10.090 --> 00:10:11.180
  • It's 50 days after Passover.
  • 00:10:11.190 --> 00:10:12.290
  • It's a Jewish holiday until today.
  • 00:10:13.000 --> 00:10:15.010
  • Bethlehem was marked by some things, before Jesus was born
  • 00:10:15.020 --> 00:10:18.130
  • in Bethlehem, there were some pretty intense preparation.
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:22.090
  • Mary and Joseph, John the Baptist, right?
  • 00:10:22.100 --> 00:10:25.110
  • Some pretty intense preparation.
  • 00:10:25.120 --> 00:10:27.220
  • Arch angels were involved; highest level of angels God has
  • 00:10:27.230 --> 00:10:32.090
  • we're involved.
  • 00:10:32.100 --> 00:10:33.200
  • Gabriel that stands in the presence of God, sending
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:35.260
  • messages to human beings about what God was going to do
  • 00:10:35.270 --> 00:10:38.270
  • and we were told about the messages.
  • 00:10:38.280 --> 00:10:41.230
  • I call that some pretty intense preparation don't you?
  • 00:10:41.240 --> 00:10:44.260
  • Let's do a little poll.
  • 00:10:44.270 --> 00:10:46.070
  • How many people in here are Christ followers?
  • 00:10:46.080 --> 00:10:48.210
  • Quite a few of you, that's good, hundreds of you.
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:51.060
  • How many of you've ever seen an archangel?
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:56.210
  • So far we're over the weekend.
  • 00:10:56.220 --> 00:11:00.100
  • So it's a pretty unusual event.
  • 00:11:00.110 --> 00:11:03.020
  • I've polled thousands of people this weekend.
  • 00:11:03.030 --> 00:11:06.050
  • So the preparation for Jesus's arrival was of the highest
  • 00:11:06.060 --> 00:11:09.040
  • order.
  • 00:11:09.050 --> 00:11:10.210
  • In fact, there were all kinds of prophecies around him.
  • 00:11:10.220 --> 00:11:13.190
  • The prophets have told hundreds of years previously what would
  • 00:11:13.200 --> 00:11:16.210
  • happen when Jesus came.
  • 00:11:16.220 --> 00:11:18.020
  • Now most of the people missed it.
  • 00:11:18.030 --> 00:11:20.100
  • The people that knew the Scripture best weren't
  • 00:11:20.110 --> 00:11:21.260
  • prepared for it but nevertheless, the prophets
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:24.060
  • had told many of the components that would be in play when Jesus
  • 00:11:24.070 --> 00:11:27.230
  • came.
  • 00:11:27.240 --> 00:11:29.030
  • You know many of those verses from your Christmas cards.
  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:31.090
  • About where he would be born, about all sorts of things;
  • 00:11:31.100 --> 00:11:34.200
  • prophetic insights, dozens and dozens of them.
  • 00:11:34.210 --> 00:11:39.200
  • There was also about Jesus's birth in Bethlehem, there was
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:42.040
  • a lot of unknown component.
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:45.020
  • Nobody had an experience portfolio that lined them
  • 00:11:45.030 --> 00:11:48.190
  • up to speak to Jesus's birth from appointed perspective, I've
  • 00:11:48.200 --> 00:11:52.180
  • been there and done that.
  • 00:11:52.190 --> 00:11:54.290
  • It was unknown.
  • 00:11:55.000 --> 00:11:56.090
  • Mary said, "How can this be?
  • 00:11:56.100 --> 00:11:58.140
  • How can this be?"
  • 00:11:58.150 --> 00:12:00.190
  • And the Angel said, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you."
  • 00:12:00.200 --> 00:12:02.150
  • Oh, that clarified a lot.
  • 00:12:02.160 --> 00:12:06.190
  • Don't you know Mary wished she had a T-shirt you could wear
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:09.050
  • around Nazareth said that the Holy Spirit came upon me?
  • 00:12:09.060 --> 00:12:14.150
  • Don't you know there was a lot of finger pointing in tongues
  • 00:12:14.160 --> 00:12:16.170
  • wagging.
  • 00:12:16.180 --> 00:12:18.240
  • There was a lot of unknowns around that.
  • 00:12:18.250 --> 00:12:20.090
  • We'd never had the Messiah here before.
  • 00:12:20.100 --> 00:12:23.040
  • We didn't know what to expect even with all the prophetic
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:25.170
  • things.
  • 00:12:25.180 --> 00:12:26.280
  • There were still there was a sense of unknown and then
  • 00:12:26.290 --> 00:12:29.100
  • there were some really intense resistance.
  • 00:12:29.110 --> 00:12:30.280
  • You wouldn't have expected that.
  • 00:12:30.290 --> 00:12:33.010
  • It was true at the point of birth, but it was even more
  • 00:12:33.020 --> 00:12:35.080
  • true as Jesus's life unfolded and his mission unfolded
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:38.260
  • the resistance intensified, it didn't diminish.
  • 00:12:38.270 --> 00:12:43.200
  • The miracles didn't diminish the resistance.
  • 00:12:43.210 --> 00:12:46.100
  • See, that seems illogical to me.
  • 00:12:46.110 --> 00:12:48.220
  • Why would you fight somebody they could walk on the water
  • 00:12:48.230 --> 00:12:50.170
  • and raising the dead?
  • 00:12:50.180 --> 00:12:53.020
  • Why would you not invite somebody to the party that can
  • 00:12:53.030 --> 00:12:55.030
  • make wine out of water?
  • 00:12:55.040 --> 00:12:57.250
  • But the resistance intensified.
  • 00:12:57.260 --> 00:13:00.140
  • It started in Bethlehem with murdering babies.
  • 00:13:00.150 --> 00:13:06.130
  • All the children in the time window when Jesus birthed we're
  • 00:13:06.140 --> 00:13:09.280
  • slaughtered; the male children.
  • 00:13:09.290 --> 00:13:11.080
  • Mary and Joseph fled with the baby to Egypt.
  • 00:13:11.090 --> 00:13:15.260
  • 'Cause the sense was they would have hunted him down wherever.
  • 00:13:15.270 --> 00:13:19.070
  • And that resistance follows him all through his life.
  • 00:13:19.080 --> 00:13:21.180

  • male announcer: From the opening chapters of the Bible

  • connected even synonymous and we all at some point have places

  • Allen Jackson: Now I think we can say because
  • 00:14:11.200 --> 00:14:12.290
  • of the Bethlehem event, there was
  • 00:14:13.000 --> 00:14:16.000
  • a seismic shift in how God related to humanity.
  • 00:14:16.010 --> 00:14:20.260
  • The coming of the Messiah changed everything.
  • 00:14:20.270 --> 00:14:22.290
  • Is that fair?
  • 00:14:23.000 --> 00:14:24.100
  • It's never the same again.
  • 00:14:24.110 --> 00:14:27.070
  • The sacrifices with and that they're not necessary
  • 00:14:27.080 --> 00:14:30.170
  • any longer.
  • 00:14:30.180 --> 00:14:31.280
  • We don't have to take the Day of Atonement and to offer a lamb
  • 00:14:31.290 --> 00:14:35.050
  • as a sacrifice because Jesus offered himself once and for all
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:38.090
  • the Bible says.
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:39.240
  • The Messiah coming was a seismic shift in how we relate to God.
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:44.290
  • Agreed?
  • 00:14:45.000 --> 00:14:46.280
  • Well, I think there's some parallels with the coming
  • 00:14:46.290 --> 00:14:48.230
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:48.240 --> 00:14:51.040
  • There was preparation.
  • 00:14:51.050 --> 00:14:53.060
  • What was the preparation for the arrival of the
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:54.220
  • Holy Spirit?
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:56.020
  • It's centered in Jesus.
  • 00:14:56.030 --> 00:14:58.090
  • The person and the work of Jesus.
  • 00:14:58.100 --> 00:15:00.090
  • Until Jesus, it accomplished his redemptive work to change our
  • 00:15:00.100 --> 00:15:03.260
  • relationship with God and our the way we participate with him.
  • 00:15:03.270 --> 00:15:07.210
  • The Holy Spirit could not do what he's doing now.
  • 00:15:07.220 --> 00:15:12.250
  • I'd call Jesus pretty significant preparation,
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:14.260
  • wouldn't you?
  • 00:15:14.270 --> 00:15:17.170
  • And then there's a lot that's on--the prophecies are
  • 00:15:17.180 --> 00:15:20.090
  • around that.
  • 00:15:20.100 --> 00:15:21.200
  • Jesus is the greatest of all the Hebrew prophets and we
  • 00:15:21.210 --> 00:15:23.070
  • looked at two examples already where he said when he comes
  • 00:15:23.080 --> 00:15:26.150
  • he's coming.
  • 00:15:26.160 --> 00:15:27.290
  • Get ready; he's coming.
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:29.100
  • In Acts chapter 1 he said don't even leave Jerusalem
  • 00:15:29.110 --> 00:15:32.050
  • until you're baptized in the Spirit.
  • 00:15:32.060 --> 00:15:34.280
  • Never mind that you've encountered a risen Christ
  • 00:15:34.290 --> 00:15:37.150
  • and you've sat with him for days and days.
  • 00:15:37.160 --> 00:15:39.280
  • Never mind that you've spent three years being tutored
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:42.010
  • by Jesus.
  • 00:15:42.020 --> 00:15:45.100
  • And then on the day of Pentecost after the Holy Spirit arrived,
  • 00:15:45.110 --> 00:15:48.000
  • Peter stands up and he says this is that which the prophet Joel
  • 00:15:48.010 --> 00:15:51.170
  • spoke about.
  • 00:15:51.180 --> 00:15:53.200
  • In the last days I'll pour out my Spirit on all flesh.
  • 00:15:53.210 --> 00:15:56.110
  • Peter quotes Joel chapter 2.
  • 00:15:56.120 --> 00:15:59.250
  • So the Holy Spirit's arrival was in fulfillment to what
  • 00:15:59.260 --> 00:16:02.230
  • the prophets had said in a way similar to Jesus's arrival was.
  • 00:16:02.240 --> 00:16:08.150
  • And there's a lot about the Holy Spirit's arrival that
  • 00:16:08.160 --> 00:16:10.150
  • was unknown.
  • 00:16:10.160 --> 00:16:12.140
  • Nobody had an experience portfolio that prepared them
  • 00:16:12.150 --> 00:16:14.290
  • for that.
  • 00:16:15.000 --> 00:16:16.090
  • The disciples in anticipation of that are sad, bewildered,
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:19.090
  • confused, frustrated, frightened.
  • 00:16:19.100 --> 00:16:25.040
  • They don't know what it's going to be.
  • 00:16:25.050 --> 00:16:28.010
  • And then there's resistance, escalating resistance.
  • 00:16:28.020 --> 00:16:33.030
  • Originally, there's just an arrest and a little bit
  • 00:16:33.040 --> 00:16:36.020
  • of bullying: "You better stop this.
  • 00:16:36.030 --> 00:16:37.150
  • Don't mention this story anymore."
  • 00:16:37.160 --> 00:16:40.140
  • Then there's an arrest with beatings involved.
  • 00:16:40.150 --> 00:16:44.090
  • Then there are arrests made and executions are carried out.
  • 00:16:44.100 --> 00:16:49.250
  • And finally, they began murdering Christ followers
  • 00:16:49.260 --> 00:16:51.280
  • in the streets of Jerusalem.
  • 00:16:51.290 --> 00:16:54.170
  • And they have to flee the city.
  • 00:16:54.180 --> 00:16:57.010
  • The resistance escalates.
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:16:59.260
  • And I would submit to you that the resistance to the Spirit
  • 00:16:59.270 --> 00:17:02.140
  • of God continues in the Earth till today.
  • 00:17:02.150 --> 00:17:06.220
  • But I would also suggest to you that just as Jesus,
  • 00:17:06.230 --> 00:17:09.130
  • the Messiah's arrival created a seismic shift that the arrival
  • 00:17:09.140 --> 00:17:13.100
  • of the Holy Spirit created a seismic shift.
  • 00:17:13.110 --> 00:17:17.080
  • I think it's most evident in the lives of the disciples.
  • 00:17:17.090 --> 00:17:19.160
  • Those characters who had been buffoons in the gospels.
  • 00:17:19.170 --> 00:17:24.220
  • And I mean that in a kind way 'cause I'm gonna meet him one
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:28.210
  • day and I don't want to spend the first few years healing.
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:33.230
  • But they had a hard time catching on to what Jesus was
  • 00:17:33.240 --> 00:17:36.120
  • saying to them and showing them.
  • 00:17:36.130 --> 00:17:38.210
  • And on multiple occasions, Jesus would look at them and say are
  • 00:17:38.220 --> 00:17:41.060
  • you really that dull?
  • 00:17:41.070 --> 00:17:44.100
  • Yes.
  • 00:17:44.110 --> 00:17:45.280
  • And they'd have a hard time with it and who wouldn't have?
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:49.080
  • But after the Holy Spirit's arrival, they become
  • 00:17:49.090 --> 00:17:52.010
  • an unstoppable force.
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:55.140
  • The ones that ran and hid when Jesus was arrested when he
  • 00:17:55.150 --> 00:17:58.020
  • needed a friend, stand before the Sanhedrin and say we
  • 00:17:58.030 --> 00:18:01.020
  • will not stop.
  • 00:18:01.030 --> 00:18:04.100
  • You couldn't beat it out of them, you could threaten
  • 00:18:04.110 --> 00:18:06.190
  • it out of them.
  • 00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:08.270
  • You could put them in prison, you could open their backs,
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:11.030
  • and they'd show back up in the public square and say,
  • 00:18:11.040 --> 00:18:13.100
  • "We're going to talk about Jesus."
  • 00:18:13.110 --> 00:18:17.050
  • And the only line of demarcation between then and now was
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:20.190
  • the arrival of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:20.200 --> 00:18:23.130
  • They had a new power.
  • 00:18:23.140 --> 00:18:30.220
  • You see the Holy Spirit's presence means that we have
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:32.250
  • assistance from another kingdom.
  • 00:18:32.260 --> 00:18:36.150
  • We don't have--we're not left to our own devices, we don't
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:38.260
  • have to out organize evil or outthink evil or outwork evil
  • 00:18:38.270 --> 00:18:42.270
  • or out commit evil.
  • 00:18:42.280 --> 00:18:45.000
  • We have help.
  • 00:18:45.010 --> 00:18:47.290
  • In John 16 and verse 27, I'm back on your notes.
  • 00:18:48.000 --> 00:18:52.100
  • Jesus said, "The Father himself loves you because you have loved
  • 00:18:52.110 --> 00:18:55.010
  • me and have believed that I came from God."
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:58.000
  • What an amazing sentence.
  • 00:18:58.010 --> 00:19:00.100
  • Jesus is talking to the disciples, his best
  • 00:19:00.110 --> 00:19:02.220
  • friends and kinda the larger crowd there.
  • 00:19:02.230 --> 00:19:05.150
  • And he said, "The Father himself loves you because you have loved
  • 00:19:05.160 --> 00:19:09.170
  • me and you believed that I came from God."
  • 00:19:09.180 --> 00:19:12.190
  • Now I ask you a question.
  • 00:19:12.200 --> 00:19:13.290
  • I think you'll know this from your reading
  • 00:19:14.000 --> 00:19:15.090
  • of the gospels.
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:16.200
  • Did everybody love Jesus?
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:18.120
  • Did everybody believe he came from God?
  • 00:19:18.130 --> 00:19:21.230
  • But he came to the covenant people of God; he came
  • 00:19:21.240 --> 00:19:24.010
  • to the chosen people of God.
  • 00:19:24.020 --> 00:19:26.200
  • He came to the people had the temple of God.
  • 00:19:26.210 --> 00:19:28.140
  • In the midst of it was the Holy of Holies where the shekinah
  • 00:19:28.150 --> 00:19:31.100
  • presence of God was.
  • 00:19:31.110 --> 00:19:33.120
  • They had a covenant with God from Abraham forward.
  • 00:19:33.130 --> 00:19:35.280
  • These are God's people and many of them didn't believe he came
  • 00:19:35.290 --> 00:19:41.280
  • from God and many of them didn't love him, but Jesus said,
  • 00:19:41.290 --> 00:19:45.030
  • "Because you did love me and because you did believe God
  • 00:19:45.040 --> 00:19:48.100
  • loves you uniquely."
  • 00:19:48.110 --> 00:19:52.270
  • Now I ask you a question: Should we not respond to the Holy
  • 00:19:52.280 --> 00:19:56.080
  • Spirit in the same way?
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:19:59.090
  • Should we not love him?
  • 00:19:59.100 --> 00:20:01.130
  • Should we not believe he came from God for our benefit?
  • 00:20:01.140 --> 00:20:08.010
  • What did--the people that did not believe in Jesus, what was
  • 00:20:08.020 --> 00:20:12.050
  • their most--what was their best argument?
  • 00:20:12.060 --> 00:20:15.280
  • They would say to Jesus: "We are children of Abraham.
  • 00:20:15.290 --> 00:20:20.130
  • Don't tell us we need something else."
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:25.030
  • And Jesus when pushed on the points said you should
  • 00:20:25.040 --> 00:20:27.010
  • understand God can make kids from Abraham out of the rocks;
  • 00:20:27.020 --> 00:20:31.160
  • you're of your father the devil.
  • 00:20:31.170 --> 00:20:34.120
  • And I'll tell you at that point that the game was on.
  • 00:20:34.130 --> 00:20:38.290
  • What do we say?
  • 00:20:39.000 --> 00:20:41.080
  • We say, "Don't tell me I need to talk about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:41.090 --> 00:20:43.120
  • Don't tell me I need to focus on that, I've been born again."
  • 00:20:43.130 --> 00:20:49.250
  • I'm not trying to diminish.
  • 00:20:49.260 --> 00:20:51.180
  • The significance of your conversion, your birth
  • 00:20:51.190 --> 00:20:54.140
  • into the kingdom of God--it is essential.
  • 00:20:54.150 --> 00:20:57.290
  • But I'm telling you it's possible to have a covenant
  • 00:20:58.000 --> 00:21:00.120
  • with God and to ignore the provision of God in
  • 00:21:00.130 --> 00:21:02.210
  • this season.
  • 00:21:02.220 --> 00:21:07.040
  • Look at the next verse.
  • 00:21:07.050 --> 00:21:08.240
  • Jesus said, "I came from the Father and I entered
  • 00:21:08.250 --> 00:21:11.250
  • the world."
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:13.050
  • Again, it's plain language but I just don't think we've listened.
  • 00:21:13.060 --> 00:21:16.180
  • I came from the Father.
  • 00:21:16.190 --> 00:21:18.170
  • I didn't start out here, I entered the world.
  • 00:21:18.180 --> 00:21:20.200
  • You know when I entered the world there was
  • 00:21:20.210 --> 00:21:22.010
  • the Bethlehem story.
  • 00:21:22.020 --> 00:21:23.150
  • We had a few angels hangin' out.
  • 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:26.160
  • The shepherds, the oxen, the lamb kept time.
  • 00:21:26.170 --> 00:21:29.010
  • Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum.
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:32.110
  • I came from the Father and I entered the world.
  • 00:21:32.120 --> 00:21:34.240
  • Look at the next sentence: "Now, I'm leaving the world then I'm
  • 00:21:34.250 --> 00:21:38.020
  • going back to the Father."
  • 00:21:38.030 --> 00:21:39.130
  • I'm not ceasing to exist, I'm not exiting this game,
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:43.060
  • I'm still engaged.
  • 00:21:43.070 --> 00:21:44.160
  • In fact, Jesus is coming back.
  • 00:21:44.170 --> 00:21:51.180
  • But I'm leaving this world now and going back to the Father.
  • 00:21:51.190 --> 00:21:54.150
  • He's still alive and well.
  • 00:21:54.160 --> 00:21:56.090
  • The language it seems to me is similar--if I put it
  • 00:21:56.100 --> 00:21:58.140
  • in contemporary words, Jesus said I'm leaving the building.
  • 00:21:58.150 --> 00:22:03.160
  • I'm leaving the building and where I'm going you
  • 00:22:03.170 --> 00:22:05.110
  • can't come.
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:07.080
  • You don't have a security clearance.
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:11.140
  • I would very humbly and lovingly suggest that we've been
  • 00:22:11.150 --> 00:22:15.040
  • to enmeshed in this present world, church.
  • 00:22:15.050 --> 00:22:21.160
  • And the outcome of that as we have been spiritually
  • 00:22:21.170 --> 00:22:23.200
  • impoverished.
  • 00:22:23.210 --> 00:22:26.140
  • We have help from another kingdom.
  • 00:22:26.150 --> 00:22:31.220
  • We need a little more definition on this world.
  • 00:22:31.230 --> 00:22:35.280
  • In John 17 in verse 14, Jesus is praying to the Father.
  • 00:22:35.290 --> 00:22:40.030
  • He said, "I've given them your word and the world has
  • 00:22:40.040 --> 00:22:42.080
  • hated them.
  • 00:22:42.090 --> 00:22:43.280
  • For they are not of the world any more than I am
  • 00:22:43.290 --> 00:22:45.210
  • of the world."
  • 00:22:45.220 --> 00:22:47.110
  • There's more than one Greek word for world.
  • 00:22:47.120 --> 00:22:49.240
  • The one that's used in this discourse is cosmos.
  • 00:22:49.250 --> 00:22:54.200
  • It's not referring to this ball of matter that's hurtling
  • 00:22:54.210 --> 00:22:58.090
  • through space around a star.
  • 00:22:58.100 --> 00:23:00.070
  • What the word means in this context is this present world
  • 00:23:00.080 --> 00:23:03.130
  • order, okay?
  • 00:23:03.140 --> 00:23:07.010
  • Jesus said I don't want you to take them out of this present
  • 00:23:07.020 --> 00:23:11.250
  • order but that you protect them.
  • 00:23:11.260 --> 00:23:14.110
  • Look at verse 15: "My prayer is not that you take them
  • 00:23:14.120 --> 00:23:16.180
  • out of this world, but that you protect them from the evil one."
  • 00:23:16.190 --> 00:23:20.250
  • Jesus is acknowledging that there is evil in this world,
  • 00:23:20.260 --> 00:23:27.110
  • all right?
  • 00:23:27.120 --> 00:23:28.220
  • When he says to the disciples I came from the Father and I
  • 00:23:28.230 --> 00:23:31.190
  • entered the world.
  • 00:23:31.200 --> 00:23:33.060
  • I came to address the evil problem.
  • 00:23:33.070 --> 00:23:36.070
  • And now I'm leaving the world to go back to the Father.
  • 00:23:36.080 --> 00:23:40.010
  • Now Jesus's work on the cross is complete and entire
  • 00:23:40.020 --> 00:23:42.190
  • and sufficient.
  • 00:23:42.200 --> 00:23:44.060
  • He defeated the enemy but that defeat has not been fully
  • 00:23:44.070 --> 00:23:49.220
  • expressed yet.
  • 00:23:49.230 --> 00:23:51.020
  • The enemy, the adversary is still alive and well on
  • 00:23:51.030 --> 00:23:54.000
  • planet Earth.
  • 00:23:54.010 --> 00:23:55.110
  • He's praying for us that we would be protected from
  • 00:23:55.120 --> 00:23:57.170
  • the evil one.
  • 00:23:57.180 --> 00:24:01.200
  • So we are still left in this present world's system.
  • 00:24:01.210 --> 00:24:07.100
  • And Jesus understood that.
  • 00:24:07.110 --> 00:24:09.030
  • He said I'm leaving but it's better for you if I go away
  • 00:24:09.040 --> 00:24:11.220
  • because if I go I will send you another helper to be with you
  • 00:24:11.230 --> 00:24:15.220
  • and to be in you.
  • 00:24:15.230 --> 00:24:20.050
  • I don't have just 12 anymore that I'm gonna shepherd
  • 00:24:20.060 --> 00:24:22.160
  • around with me in a small group and when they can't handle it
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:25.060
  • they'll bring it to me.
  • 00:24:25.070 --> 00:24:27.280
  • There's more prayers to be prayed.
  • 00:24:27.290 --> 00:24:31.040
  • There are more places with a story to be told.
  • 00:24:31.050 --> 00:24:33.090
  • He said I came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
  • 00:24:33.100 --> 00:24:36.020
  • I didn't come for everybody else.
  • 00:24:36.030 --> 00:24:37.120
  • I'm going to the villages of Israel.
  • 00:24:37.130 --> 00:24:39.210
  • But the day is coming when Jesus is gonna give us the assignment
  • 00:24:39.220 --> 00:24:42.090
  • to go into all the world into every place, every nation,
  • 00:24:42.100 --> 00:24:47.090
  • every language, every race, every tribe.
  • 00:24:47.100 --> 00:24:49.280
  • Well, how can we do that?
  • 00:24:49.290 --> 00:24:52.170
  • The Holy Spirit will come and he'll be with you and he'll
  • 00:24:52.180 --> 00:24:55.010
  • be in you.
  • 00:24:55.020 --> 00:24:57.120
  • And he will teach you what you need to know about me because
  • 00:24:57.130 --> 00:25:01.190
  • I'm the one that created the shift but he's the
  • 00:25:01.200 --> 00:25:04.220
  • delivery system.
  • 00:25:04.230 --> 00:25:07.150
  • If you want it to render the church inert, ineffective.
  • 00:25:07.160 --> 00:25:13.010
  • No matter what could capacity we have, no matter what potential
  • 00:25:13.020 --> 00:25:17.050
  • we have, no matter what power has been invested us, if you
  • 00:25:17.060 --> 00:25:20.180
  • disconnect us from the power source all we can talk about is
  • 00:25:20.190 --> 00:25:26.160
  • what we could do, what are potential is, what we
  • 00:25:26.170 --> 00:25:30.190
  • might become.
  • 00:25:30.200 --> 00:25:33.040
  • And the Spirit of God is the delivery system.
  • 00:25:33.050 --> 00:25:35.270
  • He is the expression of the power of God.
  • 00:25:35.280 --> 00:25:39.080
