  • THIS PRESENTATION IS BROUGHT TO YOU
  • 00:00:02.080 --> 00:00:03.170
  • BY THE FRIENDS OF THE AMAZING FACTS MINISTRY.
  • 00:00:03.180 --> 00:00:06.130
  • ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS ATTRACTIONS
  • 00:00:08.260 --> 00:00:10.200
  • IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
  • 00:00:10.210 --> 00:00:12.190
  • IS THE ICONIC GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE.
  • 00:00:12.200 --> 00:00:15.110
  • DURING ITS CONSTRUCTION, THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE
  • 00:00:15.120 --> 00:00:18.030
  • HAD ONE OF THE BEST SAFETY CONSTRUCTION RECORDS
  • 00:00:18.040 --> 00:00:20.160
  • OF ANY PROJECT DURING THAT TIME.
  • 00:00:20.170 --> 00:00:23.020
  • BECAUSE OF THE EXTREME RISKS,
  • 00:00:23.030 --> 00:00:25.030
  • THE CHIEF ENGINEER WAS ABSOLUTELY ADAMANT
  • 00:00:25.040 --> 00:00:27.210
  • ABOUT THEIR USING THE MOST RIGOROUS SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
  • 00:00:27.220 --> 00:00:30.220
  • THAT HAD EVER BEEN USED IN BRIDGE BUILDING.
  • 00:00:30.230 --> 00:00:33.070
  • BUT THE MOST CONSPICUOUS SAFETY MEASURE
  • 00:00:33.080 --> 00:00:35.170
  • WAS A GIGANTIC NET SUSPENDED FROM END-TO-END
  • 00:00:35.180 --> 00:00:39.040
  • UNDER THE BRIDGE ABOUT HALFWAY BETWEEN THE BRIDGE AND THE BAY.
  • 00:00:39.050 --> 00:00:42.110
  • DURING CONSTRUCTION,
  • 00:00:42.120 --> 00:00:43.230
  • THIS NET SAVED THE LIVES OF 19 MEN
  • 00:00:43.240 --> 00:00:46.290
  • WHO WERE LATER KNOWN AS THE HALF WAY TO HELL CLUB.
  • 00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:49.220
  • WITH THE NET IN PLACE,
  • 00:00:49.230 --> 00:00:51.020
  • THESE MEN WERE MUCH MORE COURAGEOUS
  • 00:00:51.030 --> 00:00:52.220
  • AND BRAVE DURING CONSTRUCTION
  • 00:00:52.230 --> 00:00:54.130
  • BECAUSE THEY KNEW THERE WAS A MECHANISM TO PROTECT THEM
  • 00:00:54.140 --> 00:00:57.010
  • IF THEY SHOULD FALL.
  • 00:00:57.020 --> 00:00:58.220
  • FRIENDS, AS CHRISTIANS WE GET TO PARTICIPATE WITH JESUS
  • 00:00:58.230 --> 00:01:02.240
  • IN BUILDING A BRIDGE
  • 00:01:02.250 --> 00:01:04.040
  • THAT WILL CONNECT HEAVEN AND EARTH.
  • 00:01:04.050 --> 00:01:05.290
  • THERE ARE DANGERS ALONG THE WAY,
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:08.000
  • BUT JESUS HAS PROMISED TO PROTECT US,
  • 00:01:08.010 --> 00:01:10.080
  • AND WE DON'T NEED TO BE AFRAID.
  • 00:01:10.090 --> 00:01:12.030
  • SO JOIN ME NOW AS WE DISCOVER THE FASCINATING BIBLE FACTS
  • 00:01:12.040 --> 00:01:16.030
  • ABOUT THE HERO OF REVELATION.
  • 00:01:16.040 --> 00:01:18.020
  • DURING THE CIVIL WAR, THERE WAS THIS ONE INDIVIDUAL
  • 00:01:22.140 --> 00:01:25.070
  • THAT REALLY SURPRISED EVERYBODY.
  • 00:01:25.080 --> 00:01:27.060
  • HIS NAME WAS JOSHUA LAWRENCE CHAMBERLAIN.
  • 00:01:27.070 --> 00:01:30.190
  • HE WAS ACTUALLY FROM MAINE.
  • 00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:32.140
  • HE WAS A SCHOOLTEACHER, ENGLISH MAJOR,
  • 00:01:32.150 --> 00:01:34.180
  • ACTUALLY MAJORED IN RHETORIC AND DIFFERENT LANGUAGES,
  • 00:01:34.190 --> 00:01:37.080
  • SEEMED LIKE SOMETHING OF A BOOKWORM.
  • 00:01:37.090 --> 00:01:39.210
  • BUT HE HAD VERY STRONG CONVICTIONS ABOUT SLAVERY.
  • 00:01:39.220 --> 00:01:43.220
  • AND WHEN, FINALLY, THE CIVIL WAR BROKE OUT,
  • 00:01:43.230 --> 00:01:47.080
  • EVEN THOUGH HIS FAMILY WAS VERY RELIGIOUS
  • 00:01:47.090 --> 00:01:49.100
  • AND HE, MAYBE, WAS A PACIFIST BY NATURE,
  • 00:01:49.110 --> 00:01:51.220
  • HE THOUGHT THE CAUSE DESERVES
  • 00:01:51.230 --> 00:01:54.020
  • THAT WE LAY OUR LIVES DOWN FOR THIS,
  • 00:01:54.030 --> 00:01:56.210
  • AND HE JOINED THE FORCES.
  • 00:01:56.220 --> 00:01:58.080
  • BECAUSE OF HIS EDUCATION THEY QUICKLY PROMOTED HIM.
  • 00:01:58.090 --> 00:02:01.100
  • AND THE NEXT THING HE KNEW,
  • 00:02:01.110 --> 00:02:02.270
  • HE WAS INVOLVED IN THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG.
  • 00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:05.220
  • SOME OF THE SOLDIERS UNDER HIM WERE A LITTLE WORRIED.
  • 00:02:05.230 --> 00:02:08.120
  • THEY SAID, "THIS GUY IS ALWAYS READING.
  • 00:02:08.130 --> 00:02:09.260
  • HE'S A BOOKWORM, HE'S A LAMB."
  • 00:02:09.270 --> 00:02:12.080
  • AND HE SEEMS SO POLITE AND HE SEEMS SO ARTICULATE,
  • 00:02:12.090 --> 00:02:14.170
  • THEY THOUGHT, "WHAT'S HE GOING TO DO ON THE BATTLEFIELD?"
  • 00:02:14.180 --> 00:02:17.120
  • WELL, IT TURNED OUT, IN ONE OF THE BIGGEST
  • 00:02:17.130 --> 00:02:19.100
  • AND THE BLOODIEST BATTLES OF THE CIVIL WAR,
  • 00:02:19.110 --> 00:02:21.160
  • THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG,
  • 00:02:21.170 --> 00:02:24.030
  • 50.000 PEOPLE DIED IN ONE DAY.
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:28.060
  • IT'S BEEN THE BLOODIEST BATTLE IN AMERICAN HISTORY,
  • 00:02:28.070 --> 00:02:30.270
  • IN ANY OF OUR WARS.
  • 00:02:30.280 --> 00:02:33.170
  • THE SOUTH WAS TRYING TO TAKE THIS HILL,
  • 00:02:33.180 --> 00:02:36.090
  • AND THEY WERE TRYING TO FLANK AROUND THE TROOPS OF THE NORTH,
  • 00:02:36.100 --> 00:02:39.240
  • AND CHAMBERLAIN KNEW
  • 00:02:39.250 --> 00:02:41.180
  • THAT HE NEEDED TO HOLD THAT HILL AT ALL COST
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:44.220
  • AND THEY
  • 00:02:44.230 --> 00:02:45.230
  • FOR THREE DAYS, THE BATTLE RAGED,
  • 00:02:45.240 --> 00:02:47.140
  • AND THE SOUTH CONTINUED TO THROW SOLDIERS AT THAT HILL
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:50.230
  • TRYING TO GET BEHIND THE TROOPS AND TO DEFEAT THEM.
  • 00:02:50.240 --> 00:02:55.060
  • AND THEY FOUGHT THE GROUP FROM MAINE THAT HE WAS OVER,
  • 00:02:55.070 --> 00:02:58.180
  • THEY FOUGHT UNTIL THEY RAN OUT OF AMMUNITION.
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:00.250
  • AND FINALLY, HE TOLD THEM, "FIX YOUR BAYONETS AND CHARGE."
  • 00:03:00.260 --> 00:03:04.230
  • WHEN THEY WERE COMING UP THE HILL AFTER THEM,
  • 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:07.070
  • HE TOLD HIS MEN TO CHARGE BACK AT THEM
  • 00:03:07.080 --> 00:03:09.130
  • WITH JUST BAYONETS.
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:11.020
  • AND IT SO TERRIFIED THE SOUTHERNERS
  • 00:03:11.030 --> 00:03:14.120
  • THAT THEY TURNED AND THEY RAN.
  • 00:03:14.130 --> 00:03:16.150
  • THEY DIDN'T REALIZE THEY HAD RUN OUT OF BULLETS.
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:19.120
  • THEY LATER CALLED HIM, INSTEAD OF THE LAMB,
  • 00:03:19.130 --> 00:03:21.150
  • THEY CALLED HIM THE LION OF LITTLE ROUND TOP.
  • 00:03:21.160 --> 00:03:24.050
  • LITTLE ROUND TOP WAS THE HILL THAT THEY WERE DEFENDING.
  • 00:03:24.060 --> 00:03:27.100
  • WELL, YOU KNOW, JESUS, WHEN HE COMES AGAIN,
  • 00:03:27.110 --> 00:03:29.210
  • HE'S COMING LIKE A LION.
  • 00:03:29.220 --> 00:03:30.260
  • WHEN HE CAME THE FIRST TIME, HE CAME LIKE A LAMB.
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:33.280
  • BUT HE IS THE CENTRAL FOCUS OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE.
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:36.290
  • AND OUR PRESENTATION TONIGHT,
  • 00:03:38.010 --> 00:03:39.200
  • DEALING WITH THE HERO OF REVELATION,
  • 00:03:39.210 --> 00:03:42.090
  • IS PART OF OUR PROPHECY ENCOUNTER SERIES.
  • 00:03:42.100 --> 00:03:45.190
  • I'VE GOT A LOT OF MATERIAL TO COVER.
  • 00:03:45.200 --> 00:03:47.110
  • YOU MAY WANT TO HAVE A PEN OR PENCIL HANDY
  • 00:03:47.120 --> 00:03:49.050
  • BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU SOME NOTES.
  • 00:03:49.060 --> 00:03:50.240
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT PROPHECIES IN REVELATION,
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:54.080
  • IN DANIEL, AND ALL THROUGH THE BIBLE,
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:03:57.180
  • THAT SHOW US WHO JESUS IS,
  • 00:03:57.190 --> 00:04:00.190
  • SO WE CAN KNOW THAT HE IS THE CENTRAL FOCUS.
  • 00:04:00.200 --> 00:04:04.000
  • IF YOU LOOK IN DANIEL CHAPTER 9.
  • 00:04:04.010 --> 00:04:06.230
  • DANIEL IS PRAYING.
  • 00:04:06.240 --> 00:04:08.290
  • GOD'S PEOPLE ARE CAPTIVES IN BABYLON.
  • 00:04:09.000 --> 00:04:11.130
  • HE'S SAYING, "WE'VE BEEN HERE 70 YEARS."
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:14.040
  • DANIEL IS READING THE PROPHECY OF JEREMIAH
  • 00:04:14.050 --> 00:04:16.240
  • THAT SAID AFTER 70 YEARS THEY WOULD GO HOME.
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:18.190
  • SO EVEN DANIEL READ THE PROPHETS.
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:20.190
  • AND HE'S PRAYING SAYING,
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:21.210
  • "LORD, WE'VE BEEN HERE 70 YEARS.
  • 00:04:21.220 --> 00:04:22.230
  • HOW LONG?
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:23.250
  • HOW LONG WILL YOU TOLERATE YOUR PEOPLE?
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:25.090
  • HOW LONG TILL THE SAVIOR THE MESSIAH COMES?"
  • 00:04:25.100 --> 00:04:27.270
  • WHILE DANIEL IS PRAYING, THE ANGEL GABRIEL COMES,
  • 00:04:27.280 --> 00:04:31.030
  • SAME ONE THAT APPEARS TO MARY,
  • 00:04:31.040 --> 00:04:33.020
  • AND HE HASN'T AGED A BIT WHEN HE APPEARS TO MARY
  • 00:04:33.030 --> 00:04:34.280
  • AT 500 YEARS LATER.
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:37.170
  • AND HE GIVES THIS PROPHECY,
  • 00:04:37.180 --> 00:04:40.230
  • "70 WEEKS ARE DETERMINED FOR YOUR PEOPLE..."
  • 00:04:40.240 --> 00:04:43.050
  • I'M IN DANIEL 9:24,
  • 00:04:43.060 --> 00:04:46.050
  • "FOR THEIR HOLY CITY, TO FINISH TRANSGRESSION,
  • 00:04:46.060 --> 00:04:50.030
  • TO MAKE AN END OF SINS,
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:52.080
  • TO MAKE RECONCILIATION FOR INIQUITY,
  • 00:04:52.090 --> 00:04:54.170
  • TO BRING IN EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:04:54.180 --> 00:04:56.250
  • TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND THE PROPHECY..."
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:05:00.150
  • TALKING ABOUT THE VISIONS
  • 00:05:00.160 --> 00:05:01.170
  • ABOUT THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:02.230
  • "AND ANOINT THE MOST HOLY."
  • 00:05:02.240 --> 00:05:05.260
  • VERY CLEAR THAT THIS IS A PROPHECY
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:07.180
  • THAT TALKED ABOUT THE MOST HOLY BEING ANOINTED,
  • 00:05:07.190 --> 00:05:10.270
  • 70 WEEKS.
  • 00:05:10.280 --> 00:05:12.160
  • SO WHAT DOES THE 70 WEEKS REPRESENT?
  • 00:05:12.170 --> 00:05:17.200
  • NOW, IN THE BIBLE, A DAY EQUALS A YEAR.
  • 00:05:17.210 --> 00:05:21.000
  • FIRST LET'S TALK ABOUT THE STARTING POINT HERE.
  • 00:05:21.010 --> 00:05:23.080
  • IT TELLS US THAT IT SAYS,
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:24.140
  • "FROM THE GOING FORTH OF THE COMMANDMENT..."
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:26.100
  • IF YOU READ IN DANIEL 9:25,
  • 00:05:26.110 --> 00:05:28.150
  • WHAT'S THE STARTING POINT FOR THIS PROPHECY?
  • 00:05:28.160 --> 00:05:30.150
  • "FROM THE GOING FORTH OF THE COMMANDMENT
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:32.230
  • TO RESTORE AND BUILD JERUSALEM."
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:35.120
  • JERUSALEM HAD BEEN DESTROYED BY NEBUCHADNEZZAR.
  • 00:05:35.130 --> 00:05:38.200
  • THE PERSIAN KING, ARTAXERXES, ISSUED A DECREE.
  • 00:05:38.210 --> 00:05:42.020
  • YOU CAN FIND THAT IN YOUR BIBLE IN EZRA CHAPTER 7.
  • 00:05:42.030 --> 00:05:46.030
  • THAT THEY COULD GO BACK
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:47.050
  • AND HE ALSO HELPED SUBSIDIZE THEIR MISSION
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:49.240
  • TO REBUILD THE CITY, TO REBUILD THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:52.220
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:05:52.230 --> 00:05:53.240
  • THE STARTING POINT OF THIS 70 WEEK PROPHECY.
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:57.210
  • "FROM THE GOING FORTH OF THE COMMAND
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:05:59.020
  • TO RESTORE AND BUILD JERUSALEM
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:00.180
  • UNTO THE MESSIAH THE PRINCE, THERE'LL BE SEVEN WEEKS..."
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:03.030
  • NOW HE BREAKS UP THAT 70 WEEKS INTO THREE PARTS:
  • 00:06:03.040 --> 00:06:06.040
  • THERE'LL BE SEVEN WEEKS, AND 62 WEEKS,
  • 00:06:06.050 --> 00:06:09.000
  • THEN YOU HAVE YOUR FINAL WEEK.
  • 00:06:09.010 --> 00:06:10.150
  • OKAY?
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:11.170
  • AND SO SEVEN WEEKS WAS THE TIME IT TOOK THEM
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:13.220
  • TO REBUILD THE WALLS AND THE STREETS
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:15.090
  • AND TROUBLOUS TIMES IN THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:06:15.100 --> 00:06:17.230
  • THEN THERE WERE 62 MORE WEEKS,
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:20.030
  • THE MOST HOLY WOULD BE ANOINTED.
  • 00:06:20.040 --> 00:06:21.220
  • THEN DURING THAT LAST WEEK,
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:23.200
  • HE WOULD CONFIRM THE COVENANT WITH THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:23.210 --> 00:06:26.040
  • BUT IN THE MIDST OF THAT LAST WEEK
  • 00:06:26.050 --> 00:06:28.070
  • HE'D MAKE THE SACRIFICE CEASE.
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:29.240
  • NOW I'VE SAID IT, I'M GOING TO SAY IT SEVERAL TIMES
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:31.280
  • BECAUSE I KNOW THIS IS A LOT OF INFORMATION,
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:34.160
  • AND I WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS CLEAR IN YOUR MIND.
  • 00:06:34.170 --> 00:06:36.190
  • FIRST OF ALL, WHEN YOU'RE DEALING
  • 00:06:36.200 --> 00:06:37.240
  • WITH A LARGE BIBLE TIME PROPHECY LIKE THIS,
  • 00:06:37.250 --> 00:06:41.060
  • THERE'S A PRETTY SAFE PRINCIPLE
  • 00:06:41.070 --> 00:06:43.210
  • THAT YOU APPLY A DAY FOR A YEAR.
  • 00:06:43.220 --> 00:06:46.120
  • AND THERE'S THREE REFERENCES THERE,
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:48.020
  • YOU CAN SEE THAT SUPPORT THAT PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:06:48.030 --> 00:06:50.250
  • NOW I'M GOING TO PUT A CHART UP ON THE SCREEN
  • 00:06:50.260 --> 00:06:52.110
  • AND EXPLAIN THIS TIME PROPHECY.
  • 00:06:52.120 --> 00:06:55.090
  • YOU SEE THE DECREE IS GIVEN 457 B.C.
  • 00:06:55.100 --> 00:06:58.170
  • ARTAXERXES YOU CAN FIND IT IN EZRA 7.
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:07:00.160
  • IT'S A PRETTY WELL ACCEPTED DATE
  • 00:07:00.170 --> 00:07:03.040
  • IN ANCIENT HISTORY.
  • 00:07:03.050 --> 00:07:04.170
  • AND SO, 483 YEARS AFTER THE COMMAND
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:09.040
  • IS WHEN YOU WOULD EXPECT TO SEE THE MESSIAH ANOINTED.
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:11.100
  • HE BEGINS HIS MINISTRY.
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.270
  • HE THEN CONFIRMS THE COVENANT WITH GOD'S PEOPLE
  • 00:07:12.280 --> 00:07:15.060
  • FOR THE LAST SEVEN YEARS.
  • 00:07:15.070 --> 00:07:17.060
  • IN THE MIDST OF THAT LAST SEVEN YEARS
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:18.270
  • HE MAKES THE SACRIFICE CEASE.
  • 00:07:18.280 --> 00:07:20.250
  • STAY WITH ME.
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:22.190
  • ALL RIGHT, JESUS WAS BAPTIZED WHEN?
  • 00:07:22.200 --> 00:07:25.230
  • YOU CAN READ IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN 1:29.
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:28.010
  • HE CAME TO JOHN THE BAPTIST, AND IT SAYS,
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:31.050
  • "JOHN SAW JESUS COMING TO HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:33.170
  • 'BEHOLD! THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:07:33.180 --> 00:07:35.060
  • THAT TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD!'"
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:37.150
  • YOU KNOW, IF YOU READ IN LUKE,
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:38.170
  • IT TELLS US THAT THE YEAR
  • 00:07:38.180 --> 00:07:39.190
  • THAT JOHN WAS PREACHING WHEN JESUS WAS BAPTIZED,
  • 00:07:39.200 --> 00:07:42.040
  • IT TALKS ABOUT PONTIUS PILATE BEING IN POWER.
  • 00:07:42.050 --> 00:07:44.190
  • YOU'VE GOT TIBERIUS CAESAR, YOU'VE GOT HEROD.
  • 00:07:44.200 --> 00:07:48.060
  • THERE IS ONLY ONE YEAR IN HISTORY
  • 00:07:48.070 --> 00:07:50.000
  • WHEN THESE THREE CHARACTERS, THEIR REIGNS OVERLAPPED
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:53.040
  • AND IT WAS 27 A.D.
  • 00:07:53.050 --> 00:07:55.120
  • 27 A.D.
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:56.190
  • IS EXACTLY 483 YEARS AFTER
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:08:00.250
  • KING ARTAXERXES' DECREE IN 457.
  • 00:08:00.260 --> 00:08:03.250
  • THAT'S WHEN THE MESSIAH WAS BAPTIZED.
  • 00:08:03.260 --> 00:08:05.160
  • WHAT HAPPENED AT THE BAPTISM OF JESUS?
  • 00:08:05.170 --> 00:08:07.150
  • YOU CAN READ IN ACTS 10:38 WHERE PETER SAID,
  • 00:08:07.160 --> 00:08:11.190
  • "GOD ANOINTED JESUS OF NAZARETH
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:13.250
  • WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT..."
  • 00:08:13.260 --> 00:08:15.080
  • HE WAS THE ANOINTED, THE CHRIST.
  • 00:08:15.090 --> 00:08:17.090
  • "AND WITH POWER, WHO WENT ABOUT DOING GOOD
  • 00:08:17.100 --> 00:08:20.090
  • AND HEALING ALL WHO WERE OPPRESSED BY THE DEVIL,
  • 00:08:20.100 --> 00:08:23.170
  • FOR GOD WAS WITH HIM."
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:25.290
  • AND SO JESUS WAS ANOINTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:08:26.000 --> 00:08:29.060
  • EXACTLY 483 YEARS,
  • 00:08:29.070 --> 00:08:31.280
  • BUT NOW YOU'VE GOT ONE WEEK LEFT
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:33.140
  • STILL TO GET TO 490, RIGHT?
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:35.220
  • NOW WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:08:35.230 --> 00:08:37.050
  • DURING THE MINISTRY OF JESUS.
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:38.140
  • WE'RE PARKING THE PROPHECY OF DANIEL.
  • 00:08:38.150 --> 00:08:40.230
  • SO YOU ALL WITH ME? WE'RE GOING TO COME BACK TO IT.
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:43.120
  • IT SAID THAT HE WOULD CONFIRM THE COVENANT DURING THIS WEEK.
  • 00:08:43.130 --> 00:08:46.290
  • WHAT DID JESUS DO DURING THAT TIME?
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:49.280
  • LET'S LOOK AT THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST
  • 00:08:49.290 --> 00:08:51.150
  • AND ARE THERE PROPHECIES ABOUT THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST?
  • 00:08:51.160 --> 00:08:54.250
  • SO I'M PUTTING LAYERS IN HERE. PROPHECIES IN PROPHECIES.
  • 00:08:54.260 --> 00:08:58.030
  • ISAIAH 61:1, FIRST SERMON JESUS PREACHED
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:09:01.100
  • HE QUOTES FROM THIS IN NAZARETH,
  • 00:09:01.110 --> 00:09:02.170
  • HIS HOME CHURCH.
  • 00:09:02.180 --> 00:09:03.210
  • HE SAID, "THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS UPON ME
  • 00:09:03.220 --> 00:09:06.150
  • BECAUSE THE LORD HAS ANOINTED ME
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:09.050
  • TO PREACH THE GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR."
  • 00:09:09.060 --> 00:09:11.220
  • CHRIST IS THE ANOINTED.
  • 00:09:11.230 --> 00:09:12.240
  • HE'S TELLING PEOPLE, "I AM THE ANOINTED."
  • 00:09:12.250 --> 00:09:15.040
  • "HE HAS SENT ME TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED..."
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:17.030
  • DID JESUS DO THAT?
  • 00:09:17.040 --> 00:09:20.080
  • "TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES",
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:22.050
  • PEOPLE CAPTIVE BY THE DEVIL AND SIN.
  • 00:09:22.060 --> 00:09:24.100
  • "AND THE OPENING OF PRISON TO THOSE WHO ARE BOUND."
  • 00:09:24.110 --> 00:09:26.270
  • HE CAME TO SET THE CAPTIVE FREE
  • 00:09:26.280 --> 00:09:29.220
  • AND TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES
  • 00:09:29.230 --> 00:09:31.230
  • AND THE GREAT DAY OF THE LORD.
  • 00:09:31.240 --> 00:09:33.170
  • AND PEOPLE THAT CAME TO HEAR JESUS PREACH,
  • 00:09:33.180 --> 00:09:36.070
  • YOU KNOW, SPIES WERE SENT TO ARREST HIM
  • 00:09:36.080 --> 00:09:37.250
  • AND THEY CAME BACK
  • 00:09:37.260 --> 00:09:39.100
  • AND THE LEADER SAID, "WHERE IS HE?
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:40.170
  • WE TOLD YOU TO ARREST HIM." YOU KNOW WHAT THEIR ANSWER WAS?
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:43.010
  • "NEVER MAN SPOKE LIKE THIS MAN."
  • 00:09:43.020 --> 00:09:47.150
  • AND I CAN TESTIFY TO YOU, THAT WAS MY IMPRESSION
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:50.250
  • BECAUSE I GREW UP BELIEVING THAT JESUS WAS...
  • 00:09:50.260 --> 00:09:54.040
  • IN OUR HOME, MY MOM DIDN'T SAY VERY NICE THINGS ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:09:54.050 --> 00:09:58.180
  • CAME, LIKE I SAID, FROM A JEWISH BACKGROUND,
  • 00:09:58.190 --> 00:10:00.280
  • AND WE THOUGHT CHRISTIANS WERE THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:03.040
  • MY JEWISH RELATIVES,
  • 00:10:03.050 --> 00:10:04.100
  • THEY'D TELL ME "OH, YEAH, JESUS WAS...
  • 00:10:04.110 --> 00:10:05.250
  • HE WAS A GOOD MAN. HE WAS A TEACHER."
  • 00:10:05.260 --> 00:10:08.020
  • AND I WOULD ASK MY GRANDFATHER,
  • 00:10:08.030 --> 00:10:09.030
  • I'D SAY, "NOW YOU REALIZE
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:10.090
  • THAT HE SAID HE WAS THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:10:10.100 --> 00:10:11.290
  • DO YOU THINK HE TOLD THE TRUTH?"
  • 00:10:12.000 --> 00:10:15.220
  • THEY SAID, "OH, YEAH, HE WAS A GOOD MAN.
  • 00:10:15.230 --> 00:10:17.010
  • HE WAS A TEACHER. HE'S A PROPHET."
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:18.180
  • "WELL, HE SAID HE WAS THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:21.030
  • HE SAID HE WAS THE ONLY ONE. HE'S THE ONLY DOOR."
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:24.170
  • AND SO THEY USED TO KIND OF STUMBLE OVER THAT.
  • 00:10:24.180 --> 00:10:26.170
  • SO I WAS VERY ANTAGONISTIC ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:10:26.180 --> 00:10:28.160
  • WHEN I FINALLY STARTED READING THE BIBLE,
  • 00:10:28.170 --> 00:10:31.020
  • SO I COULD ARGUE WITH CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:10:31.030 --> 00:10:33.030
  • AND I'D READ WHERE IT SAYS,
  • 00:10:33.040 --> 00:10:35.040
  • "HE THAT IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE."
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:36.270
  • I HAD HEARD THAT EXPRESSION ALL MY LIFE.
  • 00:10:36.280 --> 00:10:38.120
  • I SAID, "OH, JESUS SAID THAT."
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:41.290
  • "TURN THE OTHER CHEEK." OH, JESUS SAID THAT.
  • 00:10:42.000 --> 00:10:45.160
  • "GO THE SECOND MILE."
  • 00:10:45.170 --> 00:10:47.150
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:48.230
  • I WAS READING IN THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT,
  • 00:10:48.240 --> 00:10:50.060
  • I'M GOING, "I'VE BEEN HEARING THESE THINGS ALL MY LIFE.
  • 00:10:50.070 --> 00:10:51.250
  • I HAD NO IDEA THAT JESUS SAID THEM."
  • 00:10:51.260 --> 00:10:54.140
  • I SAID, "WOW, HE WAS REALLY SMART."
  • 00:10:54.150 --> 00:10:57.040
  • I MEAN, HE JUST SAID,
  • 00:10:57.050 --> 00:10:58.060
  • HE'S THE MOST QUOTED PERSON IN HISTORY.
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:11:00.040
  • NOBODY EVER SPOKE LIKE THIS MAN SPOKE.
  • 00:11:00.050 --> 00:11:03.250
  • NOW YOU LOOK AT THE PROPHECIES
  • 00:11:03.260 --> 00:11:05.040
  • AND THE EVENTS SURROUNDING THE CROSS.
  • 00:11:05.050 --> 00:11:08.030
  • ARE THERE SOME OF THOSE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT?
  • 00:11:08.040 --> 00:11:10.140
  • FOR ONE THING, JUST THE WEEK BEFORE HE WAS CRUCIFIED,
  • 00:11:10.150 --> 00:11:13.080
  • THEY CALL IT THE TRIUMPHAL ENTRY.
  • 00:11:13.090 --> 00:11:15.110
  • "REJOICE GREATLY, O DAUGHTER..."
  • 00:11:15.120 --> 00:11:16.290
  • BY THE WAY, THIS IS ZECHARIAH 9:9,
  • 00:11:17.000 --> 00:11:19.030
  • "REJOICE GREATLY, O DAUGHTER OF ZION!
  • 00:11:19.040 --> 00:11:21.070
  • SHOUT, DAUGHTER OF JERUSALEM!
  • 00:11:21.080 --> 00:11:23.010
  • BEHOLD, YOUR KING IS COMING TO YOU.
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:25.120
  • HE IS JUST AND HAVING SALVATION, LOWLY
  • 00:11:25.130 --> 00:11:28.120
  • AND RIDING ON A DONKEY, A COLT, THE FOAL OF A DONKEY."
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:32.120
  • AND THEN YOU GO TO THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:11:32.130 --> 00:11:33.240
  • AND THEN YOU SEE THE STORY WHERE JESUS RODE INTO JERUSALEM
  • 00:11:33.250 --> 00:11:36.150
  • THROUGH THE GOLDEN GATE ON A DONKEY.
  • 00:11:36.160 --> 00:11:39.090
  • JUSTICE HAD BEEN FORETOLD WITH ALL THE PEOPLE REJOICING.

  • AND MOST IMPORTANT, TO SHARE IT WITH OTHERS.
  • 00:12:13.110 --> 00:12:15.260
  • ARE THERE PROPHECIES ABOUT THE BETRAYAL OF JESUS?
  • 00:12:17.250 --> 00:12:20.190
  • YES, QUITE A FEW.
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:22.110
  • MATTER OF FACT, YOU CAN READ IN PSALMS,
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:23.250
  • A THOUSAND YEARS BEFORE JESUS WAS BORN,
  • 00:12:23.260 --> 00:12:26.260
  • KING DAVID WROTE, "EVEN MY OWN FAMILIAR FRIEND
  • 00:12:26.270 --> 00:12:29.210
  • IN WHOM I TRUSTED, WHO ATE MY BREAD,
  • 00:12:29.220 --> 00:12:32.190
  • HE HAS LIFTED UP HIS HEEL AGAINST ME."
  • 00:12:32.200 --> 00:12:35.230
  • AFTER THEY ATE BREAD TOGETHER,
  • 00:12:35.240 --> 00:12:37.020
  • JUDAS WENT OUT AND HE BETRAYED HIM.
  • 00:12:37.030 --> 00:12:40.130
  • AND THEN, AGAIN, YOU READ IN ZECHARIAH,
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:41.270
  • IT SAYS, AND THIS IS 11, VERSE 12,
  • 00:12:41.280 --> 00:12:44.060
  • "THEN I SAID TO THEM, 'IF IT IS AGREEABLE TO YOU,
  • 00:12:44.070 --> 00:12:46.290
  • GIVE ME MY WAGES, AND, IF NOT, REFRAIN.'
  • 00:12:47.000 --> 00:12:50.220
  • SO THEY WEIGHED OUT FOR MY WAGES
  • 00:12:50.230 --> 00:12:52.190
  • THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER.'"
  • 00:12:52.200 --> 00:12:55.050
  • HOW MUCH WAS JESUS SOLD FOR?
  • 00:12:55.060 --> 00:12:57.210
  • THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER, EXACTLY.
  • 00:12:57.220 --> 00:12:59.290
  • AND THEN IT GOES ON TO SAY, "AND THE LORD SAID TO ME,
  • 00:13:00.020 --> 00:13:02.200
  • 'THROW IT TO THE POTTER,'
  • 00:13:02.210 --> 00:13:04.090
  • THAT PRINCELY PRICE THAT THEY SET UPON ME.
  • 00:13:04.100 --> 00:13:07.000
  • SO THEY TOOK THE THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:08.280
  • AND THEY THREW THEM INTO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:13:08.290 --> 00:13:11.030
  • TO THE POTTER."
  • 00:13:11.040 --> 00:13:12.070
  • YOU KNOW WHAT JUDAS DID WITH THE MONEY
  • 00:13:12.080 --> 00:13:13.130
  • WHEN HE WAS OVERCOME WITH GUILT?
  • 00:13:13.140 --> 00:13:14.230
  • HE WENT INTO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:13:14.240 --> 00:13:16.060
  • HE THREW THE SILVER DOWN.
  • 00:13:16.070 --> 00:13:17.220
  • THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE MONEY
  • 00:13:17.230 --> 00:13:19.080
  • BECAUSE IT WAS BLOOD MONEY.
  • 00:13:19.090 --> 00:13:20.120
  • THEY USED IT TO BUY A POTTER'S FIELD
  • 00:13:20.130 --> 00:13:22.080
  • TO BURY STRANGERS IN.
  • 00:13:22.090 --> 00:13:24.190
  • WHAT PRECISE DETAILS WERE FORETOLD
  • 00:13:24.200 --> 00:13:27.060
  • HUNDREDS OF YEARS EARLIER, THOUSAND YEARS EARLIER.
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:30.230
  • NO, THIS ONE HUNDREDS OF YEARS EARLIER
  • 00:13:30.240 --> 00:13:33.010
  • REGARDING THE BETRAYAL OF CHRIST.
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.190
  • AMEN.
  • 00:13:34.200 --> 00:13:35.270
  • WHAT ABOUT THE MANNER OF HIS DEATH?
  • 00:13:35.280 --> 00:13:37.070
  • WAS THAT FORETOLD?
  • 00:13:37.080 --> 00:13:39.180
  • YOU REALIZE WHEN SOME OF THESE PROPHECIES WERE WRITTEN,
  • 00:13:39.190 --> 00:13:41.250
  • THEY DIDN'T PRACTICE CRUCIFIXION.
  • 00:13:41.260 --> 00:13:43.090
  • BUT YOU LOOK IN PSALM 22.
  • 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:45.240
  • NOW, DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE FIRST WORDS ARE
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:46.270
  • IN PSALM 22?
  • 00:13:46.280 --> 00:13:48.200
  • "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"
  • 00:13:48.210 --> 00:13:51.210
  • DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR?
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:53.140
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS UTTERED FROM THE CROSS.
  • 00:13:53.150 --> 00:13:54.290
  • PEOPLE THINK, "DID HE SAY THAT BECAUSE HE WAS DISCOURAGED?"
  • 00:13:55.000 --> 00:13:57.200
  • NO, JESUS SAID THAT BECAUSE LATER IN THAT PSALM
  • 00:13:57.210 --> 00:14:00.290
  • YOU FIND THESE OTHER PREDICTIONS.
  • 00:14:01.000 --> 00:14:02.270
  • READ IN PSALM 22:16,
  • 00:14:02.280 --> 00:14:05.150
  • "FOR DOGS HAVE SURROUNDED ME,
  • 00:14:05.160 --> 00:14:07.070
  • THE CONGREGATION OF THE WICKED HAS ENCLOSED ME.
  • 00:14:07.080 --> 00:14:09.290
  • THEY PIERCED MY HANDS AND MY FEET..."
  • 00:14:10.000 --> 00:14:13.040
  • DESCRIBING CRUCIFIXION.
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:14.290
  • IT'S IN THAT SAME PSALM, THAT MESSIANIC PASSOVER PSALM
  • 00:14:15.000 --> 00:14:19.070
  • WHERE HE SAYS, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"
  • 00:14:19.080 --> 00:14:22.200
  • CHRIST HAD NOT LOST COURAGE,
  • 00:14:22.210 --> 00:14:23.270
  • HE WAS DIRECTING THEM TO THE PSALM
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:25.230
  • THAT SHOWED THE VERY THING THAT WAS HAPPENING THAT DAY
  • 00:14:25.240 --> 00:14:28.010
  • AS HE HUNG UP ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:14:28.020 --> 00:14:29.180
  • IT SAYS, "THEY DIVIDED MY GARMENTS AMONG THEM,
  • 00:14:29.190 --> 00:14:32.070
  • AND THEY CAST LOTS FOR MY CLOTHING."
  • 00:14:32.080 --> 00:14:34.090
  • WHAT A PRECISE DETAIL.
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:36.130
  • AND THEN YOU READ, OF COURSE, IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:14:36.140 --> 00:14:38.080
  • THERE, MARK 15:24 AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:14:38.090 --> 00:14:42.020
  • "WHEN THEY CRUCIFIED HIM, THEY DIVIDED HIS GARMENTS,
  • 00:14:42.030 --> 00:14:44.240
  • CASTING LOTS FOR THEM
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:46.120
  • TO DETERMINE WHAT EVERY MAN SHOULD TAKE."
  • 00:14:46.130 --> 00:14:49.210
  • GAMBLING THERE AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS.
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:53.010
  • BUT WHEN THEY CAME TO JESUS,
  • 00:14:53.020 --> 00:14:54.220
  • IT ALSO SAYS NONE OF HIS BONES WOULD BE BROKEN
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:56.180
  • IN THAT PROPHECY IN PSALM 22.
  • 00:14:56.190 --> 00:14:58.280
  • IT SAYS, "WHEN THEY CAME TO JESUS
  • 00:14:58.290 --> 00:15:00.070
  • AFTER BREAKING THE BONES OF THE THIEF
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:01.230
  • ON THE RIGHT AND THE LEFT,
  • 00:15:01.240 --> 00:15:03.060
  • THEY SAW HE WAS ALREADY DEAD
  • 00:15:03.070 --> 00:15:04.140
  • AND THEY DID NOT BREAK HIS LEGS."
  • 00:15:04.150 --> 00:15:06.020
  • NOTICE JOHN GOES ON.
  • 00:15:06.030 --> 00:15:07.140
  • JOHN QUOTES FROM THE PROPHECY,
  • 00:15:07.150 --> 00:15:09.110
  • "BUT ONE OF THE SOLDIERS PIERCED HIS SIDE WITH A SPEAR,
  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:12.110
  • AND IMMEDIATELY BLOOD AND WATER CAME OUT."
  • 00:15:12.120 --> 00:15:14.280
  • TALKS ABOUT CHRIST, THE MESSIAH BEING PIERCED.
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:17.160
  • BLOOD AND WATER CAME OUT
  • 00:15:17.170 --> 00:15:18.180
  • BUT THEY DID NOT BREAK HIS BONES.
  • 00:15:18.190 --> 00:15:20.190
  • IT SAYS, "FOR THESE THINGS WERE DONE
  • 00:15:20.200 --> 00:15:21.280
  • THAT THE SCRIPTURE SHOULD BE FULFILLED,
  • 00:15:21.290 --> 00:15:24.020
  • 'NOT ONE OF HIS BONES WOULD BE BROKEN.'"
  • 00:15:24.030 --> 00:15:26.180
  • AND AGAIN ANOTHER SCRIPTURE SAYS,
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:27.280
  • "THEY LOOK ON HIM WHOM THEY HAD PIERCED."
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:30.210
  • QUOTING AGAIN THAT SCRIPTURE, JESUS WAS PIERCED,
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:32.220
  • HIS BONES WERE NOT BROKEN, HE WAS CRUCIFIED,
  • 00:15:32.230 --> 00:15:34.190
  • THEY GAMBLED FOR HIS CLOTHING.
  • 00:15:34.200 --> 00:15:36.200
  • WAS HE THE ONE?
  • 00:15:36.210 --> 00:15:38.180
  • DO THE PROPHECIES ALL TALK ABOUT JESUS?
  • 00:15:38.190 --> 00:15:40.210
  • NOW I TOLD YOU, DON'T FORGET ABOUT DANIEL.
  • 00:15:40.220 --> 00:15:43.110
  • WE'RE GOING BACK NOW TO DANIEL CHAPTER 9.
  • 00:15:43.120 --> 00:15:46.060
  • WE GOT ONE WEEK TO GO.
  • 00:15:46.070 --> 00:15:48.070
  • AND IT SAYS, "AFTER THE SIXTY-TWO WEEKS
  • 00:15:48.080 --> 00:15:51.030
  • MESSIAH WILL BE CUT OFF, BUT NOT FOR HIMSELF."
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:55.050
  • WAS JESUS CUT OFF? YES.
  • 00:15:55.060 --> 00:15:57.090
  • AND WHEN A PERSON DIES OF OLD AGE,
  • 00:15:57.100 --> 00:15:59.130
  • THAT'S NOT BEING CUT OFF.
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:16:00.150
  • BUT WHEN THEY'RE 30 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:16:00.160 --> 00:16:03.220
  • 33 AND A HALF, HE DIED IN HIS PRIME.
  • 00:16:03.230 --> 00:16:08.110
  • HE WAS CUT OFF FROM THE LAND OF THE LIVING.
  • 00:16:08.120 --> 00:16:09.280
  • BUT NOT FOR HIMSELF, FOR WHO?
  • 00:16:09.290 --> 00:16:12.170
  • FOR US. FOR ME, FOR YOU.
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:15.000
  • HE DIED FOR YOU AS THOUGH YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE
  • 00:16:15.010 --> 00:16:16.270
  • WHO HAD EVER SINNED.
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:17.290
  • HE LOVES YOU THAT MUCH.
  • 00:16:18.000 --> 00:16:19.260
  • AND THEN IT SAID, "HE WOULD CONFIRM THE COVENANT
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:21.190
  • WITH MANY FOR ONE WEEK."
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:23.020
  • SO THAT LAST SEVEN YEARS, FROM HIS BAPTISM
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:26.090
  • UNTIL SEVEN YEARS LATER,
  • 00:16:26.100 --> 00:16:29.100
  • HE IS CONFIRMING THE COVENANT WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:29.110 --> 00:16:32.090
  • THREE AND A HALF YEARS IN PERSON,
  • 00:16:32.100 --> 00:16:35.140
  • THREE AND A HALF YEARS THROUGH THE APOSTLES,
  • 00:16:35.150 --> 00:16:38.060
  • UNTIL, FINALLY THE FIRST CHRISTIAN MARTYR,
  • 00:16:38.070 --> 00:16:41.100
  • WHICH IS STEPHEN,
  • 00:16:41.110 --> 00:16:43.020
  • HE IS TRIED BY THE JEWISH SUPREME COURT
  • 00:16:43.030 --> 00:16:45.010
  • FOR HIS FAITH.
  • 00:16:45.020 --> 00:16:46.030
  • THEY DO THE SAME THING TO HIM THEY DID TO JESUS.
  • 00:16:46.040 --> 00:16:47.290
  • THEY BRING HIM OUT OF THE CITY.
  • 00:16:48.000 --> 00:16:49.150
  • HE'S FALSELY ACCUSED AND THEN HE IS EXECUTED
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:53.130
  • AND HE PRAYS FOR THE FORGIVENESS
  • 00:16:53.140 --> 00:16:54.240
  • OF THOSE WHO KILL HIM, THE SAME THING JESUS DID.
  • 00:16:54.250 --> 00:16:57.190
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK HE CAUSES,
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:16:59.160
  • HE MAKES THE OFFERING AND THE SACRIFICE TO CEASE.
  • 00:16:59.170 --> 00:17:03.000
  • THREE AND A HALF YEARS AFTER JESUS WAS BAPTIZED,
  • 00:17:03.010 --> 00:17:05.160
  • WHEN HE DIES ON THE CROSS, WHAT HAPPENED IN THE TEMPLE?
  • 00:17:05.170 --> 00:17:08.250
  • YOU READ IN MATTHEW 27:51,
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:11.040
  • "BEHOLD, THE VEIL OF THE TEMPLE WAS TORN IN TWO
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:14.020
  • FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, AND THE EARTH QUAKED,
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:16.160
  • AND THE ROCKS WERE SPLIT..."
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:18.270
  • AND THE VEIL OF THE TEMPLE IS TORN,
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:21.180
  • SHOWING THAT THE PURPOSE
  • 00:17:21.190 --> 00:17:22.210
  • FOR THAT SANCTUARY WAS COMPLETE.
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:26.270
  • JESUS SAID, "DESTROY THIS TEMPLE MADE WITH HANDS
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:28.250
  • AND IN THREE DAYS I WILL MAKE ONE WITHOUT HANDS."
  • 00:17:28.260 --> 00:17:30.190
  • HE SPOKE OF HIS BODY, THE CHURCH.
  • 00:17:30.200 --> 00:17:33.180
  • TWO THINGS WERE TORN, THE TEMPLE WAS TORN
  • 00:17:33.190 --> 00:17:35.280
  • AND THE HIGH PRIEST TORE HIS GARMENTS.
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:37.200
  • WE NOW HAVE A NEW PRIESTHOOD.
  • 00:17:37.210 --> 00:17:39.200
  • IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER IN CHRIST,
  • 00:17:39.210 --> 00:17:41.120
  • THEN YOU ARE PART OF THAT ROYAL PRIESTHOOD. AMEN?
  • 00:17:41.130 --> 00:17:44.040
  • AND WE ALSO HAVE A NEW TEMPLE.
  • 00:17:44.050 --> 00:17:45.120
  • IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER IN CHRIST,
  • 00:17:45.130 --> 00:17:46.280
  • YOU ARE A LIVING STONE IN THAT BUILDING.
  • 00:17:46.290 --> 00:17:48.260
  • THAT'S WHAT PAUL AND PETER SAY. WE ARE THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD.
  • 00:17:48.270 --> 00:17:51.250
  • CHURCH IS NOT A BUILDING, CHURCH IS THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:51.260 --> 00:17:54.170
  • NOW, GO BACK, I WANT YOU TO SEE THE CHART AGAIN.
  • 00:17:54.180 --> 00:17:57.140
  • AND YOU NOTICE HERE, WE GOT FROM THE DECREE
  • 00:17:57.150 --> 00:18:01.010
  • UNTIL THE 69 WEEKS ARE COMPLETE,
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:04.180
  • YOU'VE GOT 483 YEARS AND 69 WEEKS.
  • 00:18:04.190 --> 00:18:08.060
  • FOUR HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THREE DAYS
  • 00:18:08.070 --> 00:18:09.140
  • AND A DAY IS A YEAR.
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:10.260
  • CHRIST IS BAPTIZED 27 A.D.
  • 00:18:10.270 --> 00:18:13.260
  • HE CONFIRMS A COVENANT WITH GOD'S PEOPLE
  • 00:18:13.270 --> 00:18:15.200
  • FOR ANOTHER WEEK
  • 00:18:15.210 --> 00:18:16.230
  • BEFORE THE GOSPEL GOES TO THE GENTILES.
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:19.160
  • THREE AND A HALF YEARS IN PERSON,
  • 00:18:19.170 --> 00:18:21.220
  • THEN HE DIES AND HE CAUSES THE SACRIFICE TO CEASE.
  • 00:18:21.230 --> 00:18:25.020
  • THEN HE DOES ANOTHER THREE AND A HALF YEARS
  • 00:18:25.030 --> 00:18:26.250
  • THROUGH THOSE THAT HEARD HIM.
  • 00:18:26.260 --> 00:18:28.060
  • AND YOU'LL FIND THIS IS IN HEBREWS 2:3
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:33.080
  • WHERE IT SAYS THAT,
  • 00:18:33.090 --> 00:18:34.240
  • "HOW SHALL WE ESCAPE..." NOTICE THIS.
  • 00:18:34.250 --> 00:18:36.230
  • "HOW SHALL WE ESCAPE
  • 00:18:36.240 --> 00:18:38.000
  • IF WE NEGLECT SO GREAT A SALVATION,
  • 00:18:38.010 --> 00:18:40.080
  • WHICH AT THE FIRST BEGAN TO BE SPOKEN BY THE LORD..."
  • 00:18:40.090 --> 00:18:44.030
  • 27 A.D.
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:45.080
  • FROM HIS BAPTISM BEGAN TO PREACH
  • 00:18:45.090 --> 00:18:47.060
  • FOR THREE AND A HALF YEARS UNTIL HE WAS EXECUTED.
  • 00:18:47.070 --> 00:18:50.250
  • "AND WAS CONFIRMED TO US BY THOSE THAT HEARD HIM,"
  • 00:18:50.260 --> 00:18:54.080
  • FOR THREE AND A HALF YEARS.
  • 00:18:54.090 --> 00:18:55.180
  • DO YOU KNOW THE JEWS DID NOT GO WHEN CHRIST ROSE?
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:58.010
  • THEY DID NOT GO TO THE WORLD YET.
  • 00:18:58.020 --> 00:19:00.060
  • HE SAID, "FIRST BEGIN IN JERUSALEM AND JUDEA."
  • 00:19:00.070 --> 00:19:04.140
  • HE SAYS, "DO NOT GO,
  • 00:19:04.150 --> 00:19:05.240
  • BUT FIRST TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL."
  • 00:19:05.250 --> 00:19:08.120
  • THE APOSTLES' MINISTRY
  • 00:19:08.130 --> 00:19:09.240
  • FOR THE FIRST THREE AND A HALF YEARS
  • 00:19:09.250 --> 00:19:11.070
  • WAS EXCLUSIVELY TO THE JEWISH NATION.
  • 00:19:11.080 --> 00:19:13.270
  • AT PENTECOST, WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS POURED OUT,
  • 00:19:13.280 --> 00:19:16.060
  • IT SAYS THERE WERE DEVOUT JEWS
  • 00:19:16.070 --> 00:19:17.210
  • DWELLING IN JERUSALEM FROM EVERY NATION.
  • 00:19:17.220 --> 00:19:19.190
  • THEY PREACHED TO JEWS.
  • 00:19:19.200 --> 00:19:21.130
  • IN ACTS CHAPTER 3, ACTS CHAPTER 5,
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:23.050
  • THEY'RE ALL JEWS BEING BAPTIZED.
  • 00:19:23.060 --> 00:19:24.240
  • IT WASN'T UNTIL STEPHEN WAS STONED,
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:26.290
  • IT SAYS, "A GREAT PERSECUTION AROSE
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:29.030
  • AND THE GOSPEL WENT EVERYWHERE."
  • 00:19:29.040 --> 00:19:31.020
  • THEN PAUL IS CONVERTED, FOLLOWING THAT,
  • 00:19:31.030 --> 00:19:34.110
  • IN THE NEXT CHAPTER.
  • 00:19:34.120 --> 00:19:35.140
  • PETER THEN GOES TO CORNELIUS
  • 00:19:35.150 --> 00:19:36.290
  • AND STARTS TO PREACH TO THE GENTILES
  • 00:19:37.000 --> 00:19:39.130
  • WHO HE HAD BEEN CALLING UNCLEAN.
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:40.270
  • FINALLY THE GOSPEL BEGAN TO GO TO EVERYONE.
  • 00:19:40.280 --> 00:19:43.180
  • THAT WAS EXACTLY 490 YEARS
  • 00:19:43.190 --> 00:19:46.200
  • AFTER, AS DANIEL HAD SAID THAT PROPHECY.
  • 00:19:46.210 --> 00:19:50.130
  • YOU'VE GOT THE DECREE, 457,
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:52.210
  • THE BAPTISM OF JESUS MARKS THE LAST WEEK
  • 00:19:52.220 --> 00:19:55.100
  • OF THAT PROPHECY,
  • 00:19:55.110 --> 00:19:56.250
  • FIRST THREE AND A HALF YEARS HE CONFIRMS THE COVENANT.
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:19:59.280
  • HE THEN CAUSES THE SACRIFICE
  • 00:19:59.290 --> 00:20:01.100
  • TO CEASE BY HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:20:01.110 --> 00:20:03.050
  • THEN HE SAYS TO THE DISCIPLES, "AS THE FATHER SENT ME,
  • 00:20:03.060 --> 00:20:06.050
  • NOW YOU GO CONFIRM THE COVENANT WITH THE LOST SHEEP
  • 00:20:06.060 --> 00:20:08.210
  • FOR ANOTHER THREE AND A HALF YEARS.
  • 00:20:08.220 --> 00:20:10.140
  • STEPHEN IS STONED.
  • 00:20:10.150 --> 00:20:11.220
  • AND HE SAYS, "NOW THE GOSPEL GOES
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:13.150
  • TO THE GENTILES AND EVERYBODY, WHOSOEVER WILL.
  • 00:20:13.160 --> 00:20:16.060
  • THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT GOD SAID WOULD HAPPEN.
  • 00:20:16.070 --> 00:20:19.020
  • THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH
  • 00:20:19.030 --> 00:20:21.090
  • THAT DANIEL FORETOLD.
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:22.250
  • AND I'VE EVEN GOT A QUOTE HERE FROM JOSEPHUS,
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:25.040
  • THE JEWISH HISTORIAN,
  • 00:20:25.050 --> 00:20:26.060
  • THAT TO ME IT JUST BLOWS ME AWAY.
  • 00:20:26.070 --> 00:20:28.170
  • JOSEPHUS, FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:30.000
  • WAS A CONTEMPORARY OF THE APOSTLES
  • 00:20:30.010 --> 00:20:33.200
  • AND HE WROTE THIS FROM THE TIME OF CHRIST.
  • 00:20:33.210 --> 00:20:37.150
  • "NOW THERE WAS ABOUT THIS TIME, A WISE MAN,
  • 00:20:37.160 --> 00:20:41.020
  • IF IT BE LAWFUL TO CALL HIM A MAN,
  • 00:20:41.030 --> 00:20:43.050
  • FOR HE WAS A DOER OF WONDERFUL WORKS,
  • 00:20:43.060 --> 00:20:46.040
  • AND A TEACHER OF SUCH MEN
  • 00:20:46.050 --> 00:20:47.120
  • AS RECEIVE THE TRUTH WITH PLEASURE.
  • 00:20:47.130 --> 00:20:49.220
  • HE DREW OVER TO HIM BOTH MANY OF THE JEWS
  • 00:20:49.230 --> 00:20:52.070
  • AND MANY OF THE GENTILES, HE WAS THE CHRIST."
  • 00:20:52.080 --> 00:20:55.080
  • THIS IS COMING FROM A JEWISH SCHOLAR
  • 00:20:55.090 --> 00:20:56.210
  • WHO IS NOT WRITING IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:21:00.020
  • IT SAYS, "AND WHEN PILATE,
  • 00:21:00.030 --> 00:21:02.140
  • AT THE SUGGESTION OF PRINCIPAL PEOPLE AMONG US,
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:05.210
  • HAD CONDEMNED HIM TO THE CROSS,
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:07.230
  • THOSE THAT LOVED HIM
  • 00:21:07.240 --> 00:21:09.010
  • AT THE FIRST DID NOT FORSAKE HIM,
  • 00:21:09.020 --> 00:21:11.110
  • FOR HE APPEARED TO THEM ALIVE AGAIN
  • 00:21:11.120 --> 00:21:14.060
  • AFTER THE THIRD DAY."
  • 00:21:14.070 --> 00:21:16.040
  • SO THIS IS NOT JUST THE BIBLE, FRIENDS, THIS IS HISTORY.
  • 00:21:16.050 --> 00:21:19.010
  • AND EVEN THIS JEWISH HISTORIAN SAYS,
  • 00:21:19.020 --> 00:21:20.190
  • "YEAH, HE WAS THE MESSIAH,
  • 00:21:20.200 --> 00:21:22.270
  • HE APPEARED, HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD."
  • 00:21:22.280 --> 00:21:25.030
  • "AS THE DIVINE PROPHETS HAD FORETOLD THESE THINGS
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:28.150
  • AND TEN THOUSAND OTHER WONDERFUL THINGS
  • 00:21:28.160 --> 00:21:30.280
  • CONCERNING HIM.
  • 00:21:30.290 --> 00:21:32.070
  • AND THE TRIBE OF CHRISTIAN CONTINUES WITH US
  • 00:21:32.080 --> 00:21:34.240
  • AND THEY ARE NOT EXTINCT EVEN TO THIS DAY."
  • 00:21:34.250 --> 00:21:37.020
  • SO I WANT YOU TO CONSIDER WHAT WE'VE LOOKED AT HERE.
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:39.150
  • THERE ARE PROPHECIES THAT TELL ABOUT THE TIME OF HIS BIRTH,
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:42.170
  • THAT HE'D BE BORN OF A VIRGIN, THE TIME OF HIS BAPTISM,
  • 00:21:42.180 --> 00:21:46.200
  • THE TYPE OF MINISTRY, THE EVENTS OF HIS BETRAYAL,
  • 00:21:46.210 --> 00:21:49.130
  • THE MANNER OF HIS EXECUTION,
  • 00:21:49.140 --> 00:21:51.070
  • HIS RESURRECTION, HIS ASCENSION.
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:52.250
  • THIS IS ALL FORETOLD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:21:52.260 --> 00:21:56.000
  • AND THEN PEOPLE SAY, "PASTOR DOUG, WE HAD A QUESTION
  • 00:21:56.010 --> 00:21:58.030
  • I DIDN'T READ TONIGHT.
  • 00:21:58.040 --> 00:21:59.170
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW THE BIBLE IS TRUE?"
  • 00:21:59.180 --> 00:22:00.200
  • I'M GOING, PFF!
  • 00:22:00.210 --> 00:22:02.080
  • WHAT EVIDENCE WILL YOU ACCEPT?
  • 00:22:02.090 --> 00:22:05.080
  • WHAT EVIDENCE WILL YOU ACCEPT?
  • 00:22:05.090 --> 00:22:07.020
  • THE BOOK HAS BEEN SUPERNATURALLY PRESERVED.
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:09.020
  • EVERYTHING IT SAYS HAS COME TRUE.
  • 00:22:09.030 --> 00:22:11.040
  • AND JESUS IS THE BEST EVIDENCE OF ALL.
  • 00:22:11.050 --> 00:22:13.030
  • AMEN.
  • 00:22:13.040 --> 00:22:14.080
  • YOU START TO PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER, FRIENDS,
  • 00:22:14.090 --> 00:22:16.060
  • AND YOU CAN SEE JESUS
  • 00:22:16.070 --> 00:22:17.110
  • IS WHAT THE WHOLE BIBLE IS TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:20.050
  • AMEN?
  • 00:22:20.060 --> 00:22:21.080
  • AMEN.
  • 00:22:21.090 --> 00:22:22.130
  • SO WHY DID HE COME?
  • 00:22:22.140 --> 00:22:24.140
  • THREE QUICK REASONS WE'RE GOING TO REVIEW.
  • 00:22:24.150 --> 00:22:26.220
  • ONE HE CAME AS OUR EXAMPLE.
  • 00:22:26.230 --> 00:22:29.120
  • JESUS, HE SAID,
  • 00:22:29.130 --> 00:22:31.040
  • "I'VE GIVEN YOU AN EXAMPLE
  • 00:22:31.050 --> 00:22:32.120
  • THAT YOU SHOULD WALK AS I'VE WALKED."
  • 00:22:32.130 --> 00:22:34.280
  • JESUS CHRIST CAME AND THAT, BY THE WAY, IS JOHN 13:15.
  • 00:22:34.290 --> 00:22:39.220
  • "I WANT YOU TO LIVE AS I HAVE LIVED."
  • 00:22:39.230 --> 00:22:41.260
  • A CHRISTIAN IS A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST.
  • 00:22:41.270 --> 00:22:44.020
  • HE CAME TO SHOW US THE FATHER, IS THE SECOND REASON HE CAME.
  • 00:22:44.030 --> 00:22:47.130
  • HE SAID, "HE WHO HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN THE FATHER."
  • 00:22:47.140 --> 00:22:51.210
  • AND THEN, FINALLY, HE SAID,
  • 00:22:51.220 --> 00:22:53.240
  • "I'VE COME BECAUSE I WANT TO TAKE YOUR PLACE."
  • 00:22:53.250 --> 00:22:56.200
  • HE IS OUR SUBSTITUTE.
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:58.250
  • HE DIED AS A SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS
  • 00:22:58.260 --> 00:23:00.240
  • BECAUSE HE LOVES US.
  • 00:23:00.250 --> 00:23:02.200
  • BUT THERE'S SOMETHING THAT WE NEED TO DO.
  • 00:23:02.210 --> 00:23:05.000
  • WE NEED TO ACCEPT THAT SACRIFICE IN OUR BEHALF.
  • 00:23:05.010 --> 00:23:08.110
  • AMEN.
  • 00:23:08.120 --> 00:23:09.160
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN JESUS WAS BEING TRIED,
  • 00:23:09.170 --> 00:23:12.190
  • PILATE SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:23:12.200 --> 00:23:14.020
  • "WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH JESUS
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:16.030
  • WHO IS CALLED THE CHRIST?"
  • 00:23:16.040 --> 00:23:17.140
  • EVERYONE REALLY NEEDS TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION.
  • 00:23:17.150 --> 00:23:19.150
  • HE IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE OF HUMAN HISTORY.
  • 00:23:19.160 --> 00:23:23.010
  • ALL OF HISTORY DATED FROM HIS BIRTH.
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:25.060
  • YOU CANNOT JUST IGNORE JESUS.
  • 00:23:25.070 --> 00:23:27.130
  • GOD HAS GIVEN AN INCREDIBLE GIFT
  • 00:23:27.140 --> 00:23:29.280
  • THAT WE MIGHT BE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:23:29.290 --> 00:23:31.150
  • AMEN.
  • 00:23:31.160 --> 00:23:32.180
  • I REMEMBER READING A STORY YEARS AGO ABOUT THIS,
  • 00:23:32.190 --> 00:23:35.170
  • A RAILWAY SWITCH KEEPER IN PRUSSIA OVER IN EUROPE
  • 00:23:35.180 --> 00:23:40.130
  • WHERE THEY HAD THIS SPAN THAT CROSSED THE BRIDGE,
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:43.180
  • A RAILROAD TRACK CROSSED THE RIVER
  • 00:23:43.190 --> 00:23:45.100
  • AND THERE WAS A DRAWBRIDGE.
  • 00:23:45.110 --> 00:23:46.260
  • AND WHENEVER THE TRAIN WAS APPROACHING
  • 00:23:46.270 --> 00:23:48.200
  • IT WOULD TOOT ITS WHISTLE
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:51.020
  • AND HE WOULD RAISE THIS FLAG AND SAID,
  • 00:23:51.030 --> 00:23:52.240
  • "ALL CLEAR, KEEP GOING."
  • 00:23:52.250 --> 00:23:54.220
  • AND ONE DAY, WHILE HE WAS AT HIS STATION
  • 00:23:54.230 --> 00:23:56.110
  • WAITING FOR THE TRAIN, IT TOOTED THE WHISTLE
  • 00:23:56.120 --> 00:23:59.060
  • AND HE GAVE THE ALL CLEAR SIGN.
  • 00:23:59.070 --> 00:24:01.190
  • BUT THAT WAS ALSO A DAY THAT HE HAD BROUGHT
  • 00:24:01.200 --> 00:24:03.010
  • HIS 4-YEAR-OLD SON WITH HIM TO WORK
  • 00:24:03.020 --> 00:24:04.190
  • AND HE HAD TAKEN HIS EYES OFF HIS SON
  • 00:24:04.200 --> 00:24:07.090
  • WHO HAD WANDERED OUT ON THE TRESTLE
  • 00:24:07.100 --> 00:24:09.090
  • AND HE SAW THE TRAIN COMING.
  • 00:24:09.100 --> 00:24:11.110
  • KNOWING THE SPEED OF THE TRAIN,
  • 00:24:11.120 --> 00:24:12.210
  • SEEING HOW FAR OUT ON THE TRACK HIS SON WAS,
  • 00:24:12.220 --> 00:24:16.110
  • HE THOUGHT, "WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:24:16.120 --> 00:24:17.240
  • IF I LEAVE THE BRIDGE UP,
  • 00:24:17.250 --> 00:24:19.280
  • THE TRAIN WILL GO OFF AND ALL THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:24:19.290 --> 00:24:21.090
  • WILL PERISH IN THE RIVER.
  • 00:24:21.100 --> 00:24:23.210
  • IF I DON'T SWITCH THE TRAIN OFF THE TRACK,
  • 00:24:23.220 --> 00:24:26.190
  • MY SON IS GOING TO PERISH."
  • 00:24:26.200 --> 00:24:29.030
  • AND SO HE SHOUTED OUT TO HIS SON,
  • 00:24:29.040 --> 00:24:31.110
  • "LAY DOWN NOW.
  • 00:24:31.120 --> 00:24:32.240
  • LAY DOWN AND DO NOT MOVE."
  • 00:24:32.250 --> 00:24:35.100
  • AND HE KNEW THE BOY COULDN'T OUTRUN THE TRAIN
  • 00:24:35.110 --> 00:24:38.070
  • AND THE BOY JUST LAY DOWN.
  • 00:24:38.080 --> 00:24:40.060
  • THE BRIDGE WENT DOWN,
  • 00:24:40.070 --> 00:24:41.200
  • THE TRAIN WENT ACROSS THE RIVER
  • 00:24:41.210 --> 00:24:44.170
  • AND THE MAN NEVER KNEW, AND THE PEOPLE WENT BY,
  • 00:24:44.180 --> 00:24:46.110
  • THEY ARE WAVING AT THE MAN IN THE BOOTH.
  • 00:24:46.120 --> 00:24:49.070
  • THEY HAD NO IDEA THAT
  • 00:24:49.080 --> 00:24:50.250
  • WHAT THE DECISION HE HAD JUST MADE.
  • 00:24:50.260 --> 00:24:53.050
  • AFTER THE TRAIN PASSED, HE RAN OUT THERE EXPECTING
  • 00:24:53.060 --> 00:24:55.120
  • MAYBE TO FIND THE MANGLED REMAINS OF HIS CHILDREN.
  • 00:24:55.130 --> 00:24:57.250
  • HIS BOY HAD OBEYED AND HE WAS ALIVE.
  • 00:24:57.260 --> 00:25:00.160
  • THE WHOLE TRAIN WENT OVER HIM.
  • 00:25:00.170 --> 00:25:03.030
  • NEXT DAY THE KING OF PRUSSIA GAVE THAT MAN A REWARD
  • 00:25:03.040 --> 00:25:06.040
  • FOR BEING WILLING TO SACRIFICE HIS SON
  • 00:25:06.050 --> 00:25:08.230
  • TO SAVE ALL THOSE PEOPLE.
  • 00:25:08.240 --> 00:25:11.240
  • HIS SON DID NOT DIE.
  • 00:25:11.250 --> 00:25:14.130
  • YOU'VE PROBABLY HEARD VARIATIONS OF THAT STORY.
  • 00:25:14.140 --> 00:25:17.230
  • BUT IT IS TRUE THAT OUR FATHER GAVE HIS SON
  • 00:25:17.240 --> 00:25:20.050
  • AND HE DID DIE.
  • 00:25:20.060 --> 00:25:21.240
  • AND A LOT OF THE WORLD DOESN'T EVEN KNOW,
  • 00:25:21.250 --> 00:25:23.160
  • AS THEY GO ON THEIR MERRY WAY,
  • 00:25:23.170 --> 00:25:24.210
  • THEY'RE ALIVE TODAY BECAUSE OF THE GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:25:24.220 --> 00:25:27.100
  • BECAUSE THE PENALTY FOR SIN IS DEATH.
  • 00:25:27.110 --> 00:25:28.250
  • AND WHY AREN'T THESE PEOPLE ALL DEAD?
  • 00:25:28.260 --> 00:25:31.030
  • BECAUSE JESUS, BY HIS SACRIFICE,
  • 00:25:31.040 --> 00:25:33.060
  • BOUGHT THE HUMAN RACE TIME,
  • 00:25:33.070 --> 00:25:35.240
  • PROBATION TO MAKE A DECISION.
  • 00:25:35.250 --> 00:25:38.100
  • WE'VE GOT JUST THIS LIFE. ONE LIFE TO MAKE A DECISION.
  • 00:25:38.110 --> 00:25:42.090
