  • 00:09:53.015 --> 00:09:55.284
  • THAT'S A NEW SONG AND WE HAVEA PORTION OF IT RECORDED HERE.
  • 00:09:55.317 --> 00:09:59.388
  • GREAT AND MARVELOUSARE YOUR WORKS,
  • 00:09:59.422 --> 00:10:01.590
  • OH LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY,
  • 00:10:01.624 --> 00:10:02.958
  • RIGHTEOUS AND TRUEARE YOUR WAYS.
  • 00:10:02.992 --> 00:10:05.027
  • KING OF THE NATIONS,
  • 00:10:05.061 --> 00:10:06.495
  • WHO WILL NOT FEAR, OH LORDAND GLORIFY YOUR NAME,
  • 00:10:06.529 --> 00:10:09.699
  • FOR YOU ALONE ARE HOLY,
  • 00:10:09.732 --> 00:10:11.167
  • FOR ALL THE NATIONS WILLCOME AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOU,
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:15.337
  • FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTSHAVE BEEN REVEALED.
  • 00:10:15.371 --> 00:10:19.175
  • ALL OF THE NATIONS ARE GOINGTO WORSHIP BEFORE THE LAMB.
  • 00:10:19.208 --> 00:10:23.579
  • PERHAPS JOHN, INHEARING THIS SONG,
  • 00:10:23.612 --> 00:10:26.282
  • WAS THINKING ABOUT PAUL'SWORDS IN PHILIPPIANS TWO2
  • 00:10:26.315 --> 00:10:29.819
  • WHEN HE SAID, "FORAT THE NAME OF JESUS,
  • 00:10:29.852 --> 00:10:32.621
  • EVERY KNEE SHALL BOWIN HEAVEN ON EARTH
  • 00:10:32.655 --> 00:10:35.458
  • AND UNDER THE EARTH ANDEVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS
  • 00:10:35.491 --> 00:10:38.994
  • THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD TOTHE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER."
  • 00:10:39.028 --> 00:10:43.899
  • ONE COMMENTATOR, JOHN PHILLIPS,
  • 00:10:43.933 --> 00:10:46.001
  • HAS COMPARED THE SONG OF MOSES
  • 00:10:46.035 --> 00:10:49.171
  • WITH THE SONG OFTHE LAMB THIS WAY,
  • 00:10:49.205 --> 00:10:51.807
  • THE SONG OF MOSES WASSUNG AT THE RED SEA,
  • 00:10:51.841 --> 00:10:55.211
  • THE SONG OF THE LAMB ISSUNG AT THE CRYSTAL SEA,
  • 00:10:55.244 --> 00:10:58.781
  • THE SONG OF MOSES WAS ASONG OF TRIUMPH OVER EGYPT,
  • 00:10:58.814 --> 00:11:02.351
  • THE SONG OF THE LAMB WILL BE ASONG OF TRIUMPH OVER BABYLON,
  • 00:11:02.384 --> 00:11:06.655
  • THE SONG OF MOSES TOLD HOWGOD BROUGHT HIS PEOPLE OUT,
  • 00:11:06.689 --> 00:11:10.326
  • OUT OF EGYPT,
  • 00:11:10.359 --> 00:11:11.794
  • THE SONG OF THE LAMB TELLSHOW GOD BRINGS HIS PEOPLE IN,
  • 00:11:11.827 --> 00:11:15.731
  • INTO HEAVEN,
  • 00:11:15.765 --> 00:11:17.233
  • THE SONG OF MOSES WAS THEFIRST SONG IN SCRIPTURE
  • 00:11:17.266 --> 00:11:21.070
  • AND THE SONG OF THELAMB IS THE LAST.
  • 00:11:21.103 --> 00:11:23.205
  • THIS IS THE LAST RECORDEDSONG IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:11:23.239 --> 00:11:27.476
  • THERE'S A THIRD THING JOHN SAW,
  • 00:11:27.510 --> 00:11:29.411
  • THE FINAL THING, VERSESFIVE THROUGH EIGHT
  • 00:11:29.445 --> 00:11:32.047
  • AND THIS IS THEHEART OF THE CHAPTER.
  • 00:11:32.081 --> 00:11:34.150
  • AGAIN, HE SAYS,"AFTER THESE THINGS,
  • 00:11:34.183 --> 00:11:37.019
  • I LOOKED AND THE TEMPLEOF THE TABERNACLE
  • 00:11:37.052 --> 00:11:40.189
  • OF TESTIMONY INHEAVEN WAS OPENED."
  • 00:11:40.222 --> 00:11:43.926
  • REMEMBER, WHEN JOHNWROTE THESE WORDS,
  • 00:11:43.959 --> 00:11:45.728
  • THE EARTHLY TEMPLE HAD ALREADYBEEN DESTROYED IN 70 AD,
  • 00:11:45.761 --> 00:11:48.964
  • BUT THAT WAS JUST A REPLICAOF WHAT'S IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:11:48.998 --> 00:11:51.333
  • HE SAID, "I LOOKED UPAND I SAW HEAVEN OPEN
  • 00:11:51.367 --> 00:11:54.003
  • AND THERE WAS THE TEMPLE."
  • 00:11:54.036 --> 00:11:56.238
  • AND YOU'LL REMEMBER THAT THEHOLIEST PART OF THE TEMPLE
  • 00:11:56.272 --> 00:11:59.341
  • WAS THE HOLY OF HOLLIES,
  • 00:11:59.375 --> 00:12:01.544
  • WHERE THE HIGH PRIESTWENT IN ONCE A YEAR
  • 00:12:01.577 --> 00:12:04.380
  • TO MAKE ATONEMENT FORTHE SINS OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:12:04.413 --> 00:12:07.016
  • AND OF THE THINGS INTHAT HOLY OF HOLLIES,
  • 00:12:07.049 --> 00:12:09.351
  • THE MOST INTERESTING WASTHE TABERNACLE OF TESTIMONY.
  • 00:12:09.385 --> 00:12:13.255
  • THAT'S JUST A PHRASE THATDESCRIBES THE ARC OF THE
  • 00:12:13.289 --> 00:12:17.092
  • COVENANT AND ONCE A YEAR, THEHIGH PRIEST WOULD COME IN
  • 00:12:17.126 --> 00:12:19.361
  • AND HE WOULD SPRINKLE BLOOD,COVER THAT MERCY SEAT,
  • 00:12:19.395 --> 00:12:22.932
  • THAT LID, COVER IT WITHBLOOD AND THE PICTURE WAS,
  • 00:12:22.965 --> 00:12:26.535
  • GOD LOOKED DOWN ON THE LAWWHICH HIS PEOPLE HAD BROKEN,
  • 00:12:26.569 --> 00:12:30.039
  • BUT INSTEAD OF SEEINGTHE BROKEN LAW,
  • 00:12:30.072 --> 00:12:32.174
  • HE SAW THE BLOOD OFAN INNOCENT ANIMAL,
  • 00:12:32.208 --> 00:12:35.578
  • ALL PRETENDING OFTHE DEATH OF CHRIST,
  • 00:12:35.611 --> 00:12:38.480
  • THE LAMB OF GOD FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:12:38.514 --> 00:12:41.116
  • WHEN JOHN LOOKED UP INTO HEAVEN
  • 00:12:41.150 --> 00:12:42.952
  • AND HE SAW THAT ARCOF THE COVENANT,
  • 00:12:42.985 --> 00:12:46.021
  • SYMBOLIZING THE LAW OF GOD
  • 00:12:46.055 --> 00:12:48.357
  • AND NOTICE THAT THEANGELS WERE COMING OUT
  • 00:12:48.390 --> 00:12:51.493
  • OF THAT HOLY OF HOLLIES,
  • 00:12:51.527 --> 00:12:53.762
  • THAT SYMBOLIZESTHAT THESE JUDGMENTS
  • 00:12:53.796 --> 00:12:56.031
  • THAT THEY WERE ABOUT TOPOUR OUT UPON THE EARTH
  • 00:12:56.065 --> 00:12:58.133
  • ARE RELATED TO THE LAW.
  • 00:12:58.167 --> 00:12:59.902
  • THE LAW HAD BEEN SOREBELLED AGAINST,
  • 00:12:59.935 --> 00:13:02.872
  • THAT GOD'S JUDGMENT IS CERTAIN.
  • 00:13:02.905 --> 00:13:04.707
  • LOOK AT THIS,
  • 00:13:04.740 --> 00:13:06.175
  • "AND THE SEVEN ANGELSWHO HAD THE SEVEN PLAGUES
  • 00:13:06.208 --> 00:13:08.177
  • CAME OUT OF THE TEMPLE."
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:09.478
  • THEY ALREADY HADTHE PLAGUES IN HAND.
  • 00:13:09.511 --> 00:13:11.580
  • "THEY WERE CLOTHED INLINEN, CLEAN AND BRIGHT
  • 00:13:11.614 --> 00:13:15.150
  • AND THEY WERE GIRDED AROUNDTHEIR CHEST WITH GOLDEN SASHES
  • 00:13:15.184 --> 00:13:18.687
  • AND THEN ONE OF THEFOUR LIVING CREATURES,
  • 00:13:18.721 --> 00:13:21.924
  • THAT'S ONE OF THE ANGELSSYMBOLIZING EARTH'S CREATION,
  • 00:13:21.957 --> 00:13:26.362
  • GAVE TO THE SEVEN ANGELS,SEVEN GOLDEN BOWLS
  • 00:13:26.395 --> 00:13:30.366
  • FULL OF THE WRATH OF GODWHO LIVES FOREVER AND EVER."
  • 00:13:30.399 --> 00:13:33.836
  • THE ANGELS HAD ALREADYBEEN GIVEN THE PLAGUES,
  • 00:13:33.869 --> 00:13:36.138
  • BUT THEN EACH ANGELWAS GIVEN A BOWL.
  • 00:13:36.171 --> 00:13:40.209
  • NOW THIS BOWL, THIS WORD BOWL,
  • 00:13:40.242 --> 00:13:42.478
  • ISN'T LIKE THE CEREAL BOWL
  • 00:13:42.511 --> 00:13:45.347
  • I USED THIS MORNING FORMY BRAN FLAKES, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:13:45.381 --> 00:13:47.950
  • THAT IS DEEP AND YOU CANPUT A LOT OF STUFF IN THERE.
  • 00:13:47.983 --> 00:13:50.819
  • THE WORD BOWL LITERALLYMEANS A SAUCER, VERY THIN.
  • 00:13:50.853 --> 00:13:54.990
  • THE ANGELS ARE COMING OUTWITH THE PLAGUES OF GOD
  • 00:13:55.024 --> 00:13:58.294
  • AND THEN THEY HAD THESE SAUCERSWITH THE WRATH OF GOD IN IT,
  • 00:13:58.327 --> 00:14:02.731
  • GOD'S ANGER AGAIN TOWARDS SIN
  • 00:14:02.765 --> 00:14:05.367
  • AND APPARENTLY THE PLAGUES AREMIXED WITH THE WRATH OF GOD,
  • 00:14:05.401 --> 00:14:09.071
  • AS WE'RE GOING TO SEE NEXT TIME,
  • 00:14:09.104 --> 00:14:10.739
  • THEY'RE GOING TO BE DUMPEDOUT ON THE EARTH VERY QUICKLY.
  • 00:14:10.773 --> 00:14:13.976
  • THE IDEA OF A SAUCERIS IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG
  • 00:14:14.009 --> 00:14:16.011
  • TO EMPTY ITS CONTENTS.
  • 00:14:16.045 --> 00:14:17.713
  • THESE ARE THE SEVEN BOWLSFULL OF THE WRATH OF GOD
  • 00:14:17.746 --> 00:14:20.549
  • WHO LIVES FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:14:20.582 --> 00:14:22.451
  • "AND THE TEMPLE, THISIS SO INTERESTING,
  • 00:14:22.484 --> 00:14:25.120
  • THE TEMPLE WAS FILLED WITHSMOKE FROM THE GLORY OF GOD
  • 00:14:25.154 --> 00:14:28.691
  • AND FROM HIS POWER
  • 00:14:28.724 --> 00:14:29.959
  • AND NO ONE WAS ABLETO ENTER THE TEMPLE
  • 00:14:29.992 --> 00:14:32.728
  • UNTIL THE SEVEN PLAGUES OF THESEVEN ANGELS WERE FINISHED."
  • 00:14:32.761 --> 00:14:39.635
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THESE JUDGMENTSARE NOW SO INEVITABLE.
  • 00:14:39.668 --> 00:14:46.141
  • THE COUNTDOWN CLOCK HAS STARTED
  • 00:14:46.175 --> 00:14:48.477
  • THAT NOTHING CANPREVENT THESE JUDGMENTS
  • 00:14:48.510 --> 00:14:51.347
  • FROM BEING ACCOMPLISHEDON THE EARTH.
  • 00:14:51.380 --> 00:14:54.249
  • THIS IS A PRELUDE TOTHOSE BOWL JUDGMENTS
  • 00:14:54.283 --> 00:14:57.286
  • WE'LL SEE NEXT TIMEIN REVELATION 16.
  • 00:14:57.319 --> 00:15:01.490
  • WHAT DOES ALL OF THISMEAN TO US TODAY?
  • 00:15:01.523 --> 00:15:04.493
  • LET ME CLOSE TODAY BRIEFLYWITH THREE TIMELESS TRUTHS
  • 00:15:04.526 --> 00:15:08.931
  • FROM REVELATION 15 ANDHOW THEY APPLY TO YOU.
  • 00:15:08.964 --> 00:15:12.735
  • WRITE THEM DOWN.
  • 00:15:12.768 --> 00:15:13.969
  • NUMBER ONE, NO ONECAN APPROACH GOD
  • 00:15:14.003 --> 00:15:17.306
  • IN HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:15:17.339 --> 00:15:19.441
  • NOBODY CAN APPROACH GODIN HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:15:19.475 --> 00:15:23.345
  • REGARDLESS OF WHATYOU HEAR TODAY,
  • 00:15:23.379 --> 00:15:25.447
  • YOU'RE NOT FREE TO COMETO GOD ANYTIME YOU WANT,
  • 00:15:25.481 --> 00:15:28.317
  • ANY WAY YOU WANT.
  • 00:15:28.350 --> 00:15:30.019
  • THAT PICTURE OF THETEMPLE IN HEAVEN
  • 00:15:30.052 --> 00:15:32.988
  • IS A REMINDER THAT YOU HAVETO APPROACH GOD IN HIS WAY,
  • 00:15:33.022 --> 00:15:37.559
  • IN HIS WAY.
  • 00:15:37.593 --> 00:15:39.928
  • YOU SEE, THE BIBLE SAYS THEONLY PEOPLE WHO CAN STAND
  • 00:15:39.962 --> 00:15:42.731
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD NOWAND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY
  • 00:15:42.765 --> 00:15:45.934
  • ARE RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:45.968 --> 00:15:48.537
  • AGAIN, THE OLD TESTAMENT SAYS
  • 00:15:48.570 --> 00:15:50.672
  • GOD'S EYES ARE TOOPURE TO LOOK UPON SIN.
  • 00:15:50.706 --> 00:15:53.675
  • A HOLY GOD CANNOT HAVEFELLOWSHIP WITH SINFUL MAN,
  • 00:15:53.709 --> 00:15:57.646
  • ONLY THE RIGHTEOUS,
  • 00:15:57.679 --> 00:15:59.148
  • THAT WORD MEANS TO BE INA RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD.
  • 00:15:59.181 --> 00:16:01.650
  • ONLY THE RIGHTEOUS CANSTAND IN GOD'S PRESENCE.
  • 00:16:01.683 --> 00:16:06.522
  • AND WHO IS IT THAT IS RIGHTEOUS?
  • 00:16:06.555 --> 00:16:09.291
  • NO ONE.
  • 00:16:09.324 --> 00:16:11.927
  • NO ONE.
  • 00:16:11.960 --> 00:16:13.562
  • REMEMBER IN ROMANS 3,PAUL QUOTES FROM PSALM 14,
  • 00:16:13.595 --> 00:16:18.133
  • "THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS,NO, NOT EVEN ONE.
  • 00:16:18.167 --> 00:16:21.437
  • THERE IS NONE WHO UNDERSTANDS.
  • 00:16:21.470 --> 00:16:22.971
  • THERE IS NO ONEWHO SEEKS FOR GOD,
  • 00:16:23.005 --> 00:16:24.840
  • FOR ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE.
  • 00:16:24.873 --> 00:16:27.476
  • TOGETHER, THEY HAVEBECOME USELESS.
  • 00:16:27.509 --> 00:16:29.711
  • THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD,THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE."
  • 00:16:29.745 --> 00:16:33.916
  • OH PASTOR, I DON'T BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:16:33.949 --> 00:16:35.717
  • I MEAN, WHAT ABOUTSOMEBODY WHO PUTS UP A HOME
  • 00:16:35.751 --> 00:16:37.953
  • FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY?
  • 00:16:37.986 --> 00:16:39.488
  • OR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO AREWORKING IN INDIA RIGHT NOW
  • 00:16:39.521 --> 00:16:41.990
  • TO BRING RELIEF?
  • 00:16:42.024 --> 00:16:43.459
  • I MEAN, THERE ARE GOODPEOPLE, NOT IN GOD'S EYES.
  • 00:16:43.492 --> 00:16:46.328
  • THERE IS NOT ONERIGHTEOUS PERSON.
  • 00:16:46.361 --> 00:16:49.765
  • THERE IS NO ONE WHO DOESGOOD IN AND OF HIS OWN.
  • 00:16:49.798 --> 00:16:53.368
  • IN FACT, TO GO ONE STEP FURTHER,
  • 00:16:53.402 --> 00:16:55.504
  • ISAIAH, THE PROPHETRECORDS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:16:55.537 --> 00:16:58.240
  • WHO SAYS FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:16:58.273 --> 00:17:00.042
  • THE BEST YOU CAN DO BEFOREGOD IS LIKE A FILTHY RAG
  • 00:17:00.075 --> 00:17:06.415
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:17:06.448 --> 00:17:08.617
  • NOT TO BE OFFENSIVE, BUTYOU'VE HEARD ME SAY BEFORE
  • 00:17:08.650 --> 00:17:11.086
  • THAT HEBREW WORD FOR FILTHY RAG
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:13.689
  • IS A WORD ASSOCIATED WITHMENSTRUATION OF A WOMAN,
  • 00:17:13.722 --> 00:17:18.594
  • A FILTHY, A DISEASED RAG.
  • 00:17:18.627 --> 00:17:21.296
  • THE BEST YOU CANDO IN GOD'S EYES.
  • 00:17:21.330 --> 00:17:23.999
  • THAT'S HOW HE EVALUATES IT.
  • 00:17:24.032 --> 00:17:26.135
  • THERE IS NO ONE RIGHTEOUS ENOUGH
  • 00:17:26.168 --> 00:17:28.170
  • TO STAND IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:17:28.203 --> 00:17:31.140
  • THE ONLY WAY WE CANSTAND IN GOD'S PRESENCE
  • 00:17:31.173 --> 00:17:33.842
  • IS WHEN WE COME TO HIM,NOT IN OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:17:33.876 --> 00:17:36.845
  • BUT ON THE BASIS OFCHRIST'S RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:17:36.879 --> 00:17:40.115
  • YOU SEE, WHEN YOU TRUST INJESUS TO BE YOUR SAVIOR,
  • 00:17:40.149 --> 00:17:43.418
  • WHEN YOU TRUST IN JESUS FORTHE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS,
  • 00:17:43.452 --> 00:17:46.788
  • GOD TAKES YOUR SIN
  • 00:17:46.822 --> 00:17:50.559
  • AND HE NAILS IT TO THECROSS OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:17:50.592 --> 00:17:53.695
  • WHERE IT'S PAID FOR,
  • 00:17:53.729 --> 00:17:55.030
  • AND GOD TAKES THERIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:17:55.063 --> 00:17:58.100
  • AND WRAPS IT AROUND YOU SOTHAT WHEN GOD LOOKS AT YOU,
  • 00:17:58.133 --> 00:18:02.204
  • HE NO LONGER SEESYOUR FILTHY SIN,
  • 00:18:02.237 --> 00:18:04.840
  • HE SEES THE PERFECTION,THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:18:04.873 --> 00:18:07.476
  • OF HIS OWN SON, JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:18:07.509 --> 00:18:09.912
  • AND THAT'S WHY PAUL PRAYED INPHILIPPIANS 3:9.
  • 00:18:09.945 --> 00:18:13.248
  • HE SAID, "MY PRAYER IS THAT ONEDAY I MIGHT BE FOUND IN HIM,
  • 00:18:13.282 --> 00:18:17.519
  • JESUS, NOT HAVING ARIGHTEOUSNESS OF MY OWN
  • 00:18:17.553 --> 00:18:20.822
  • DERIVED FROM THE LAW,
  • 00:18:20.856 --> 00:18:22.291
  • BUT HAVING THE RIGHTEOUSNESSWHICH COMES FROM GOD
  • 00:18:22.324 --> 00:18:25.227
  • ON THE BASIS OF FAITH."
  • 00:18:25.260 --> 00:18:27.529
  • THAT'S TRUTH NUMBER, NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:18:27.563 --> 00:18:29.231
  • NOBODY CAN APPROACH GODIN HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:18:29.264 --> 00:18:32.434
  • TRUTH NUMBER TWO, GOD'S PURPOSES
  • 00:18:32.467 --> 00:18:34.970
  • ARE SOMETIMES HIDDEN FROM US.
  • 00:18:35.003 --> 00:18:38.874
  • WHEN THESE PLAGUES BEGAN,SMOKE, THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:18:38.907 --> 00:18:42.544
  • FILLS THE TEMPLE SOTHAT NOBODY CAN SEE GOD.
  • 00:18:42.578 --> 00:18:46.481
  • THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE GOD,
  • 00:18:46.515 --> 00:18:47.849
  • BUT THEY'LL SEE THEMANIFESTATION OF GOD ON EARTH.
  • 00:18:47.883 --> 00:18:51.253
  • YOU KNOW, THERE ARESOME OF YOU RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:18:51.286 --> 00:18:53.255
  • MAYBE YOU'RE GOING THROUGHAN EXPERIENCE IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:18:53.288 --> 00:18:56.291
  • CALAMITY, UNEXPECTEDCIRCUMSTANCES,
  • 00:18:56.325 --> 00:19:01.163
  • IT MAY NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO
  • 00:19:01.196 --> 00:19:02.331
  • WITH YOUR SIN OR DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:19:02.364 --> 00:19:05.100
  • IT COULD BE PART OF GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:19:05.133 --> 00:19:07.035
  • YOU CAN'T SEE THEOUTCOME OF THAT PLAN YET.
  • 00:19:07.069 --> 00:19:09.204
  • WHEN YOU TRY TO LOOK INTOHEAVEN, YOU SEE NOTHING.
  • 00:19:09.238 --> 00:19:13.008
  • GOD SEEMS BLOCKED FROM YOU.
  • 00:19:13.041 --> 00:19:14.643
  • YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT'SHAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:19:14.676 --> 00:19:17.045
  • BUT HERE'S SOMETHINGYOU CAN ALWAYS REMEMBER.
  • 00:19:17.079 --> 00:19:19.414
  • EVEN WHEN YOU CAN'TSEE GOD'S HAND,
  • 00:19:19.448 --> 00:19:21.917
  • YOU CAN ALWAYSTRUST GOD'S HEART.
  • 00:19:21.950 --> 00:19:24.553
  • IF YOU'RE A CHILD OF GOD,YOU CAN CLAIM THE PROMISE
  • 00:19:24.586 --> 00:19:27.823
  • THAT GOD IS CAUSINGALL THINGS IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:19:27.856 --> 00:19:30.392
  • TO WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD,TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD
  • 00:19:30.425 --> 00:19:34.429
  • AND ARE CALLED ACCORDINGTO HIS PURPOSE.
  • 00:19:34.463 --> 00:19:37.666
  • THE FINAL TRUTH INTHIS PASSAGE IS,
  • 00:19:37.699 --> 00:19:40.969
  • AND THIS IS GOING TO SEEMSTRANGE TO SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:19:41.003 --> 00:19:43.038
  • BUT STAY WITH ME.
  • 00:19:43.071 --> 00:19:44.539
  • THERE IS A TIME WHENIT IS TOO LATE TO PRAY.
  • 00:19:44.573 --> 00:19:50.712
  • THERE IS A TIME WHENIT'S TOO LATE TO PRAY.
  • 00:19:50.746 --> 00:19:52.281
  • THAT'S THE MOST DIRECTAPPLICATION OF THIS PASSAGE.
  • 00:19:52.314 --> 00:19:55.784
  • AGAIN, LOOK AT VERSE 8,
  • 00:19:55.817 --> 00:19:57.319
  • "AND THE TEMPLE WAS FILLED WITHSMOKE FROM THE GLORY OF GOD
  • 00:19:57.352 --> 00:20:00.889
  • AND FROM HIS POWER
  • 00:20:00.922 --> 00:20:02.257
  • SO THAT NO ONE WAS ABLETO ENTER THE TEMPLE
  • 00:20:02.291 --> 00:20:04.459
  • UNTIL THE SEVEN PLAGUES OF THESEVEN ANGELS WERE FINISHED."
  • 00:20:04.493 --> 00:20:08.664
  • WHY IS IT THAT PEOPLEWENT INTO THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:20:08.697 --> 00:20:10.599
  • OR HAD THE PRIEST GOINTO THE TEMPLE FOR THEM?
  • 00:20:10.632 --> 00:20:14.202
  • IN ORDER TO RECEIVEGOD'S FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:20:14.236 --> 00:20:16.805
  • IN ORDER TO RECEIVE GOD'S HELP.
  • 00:20:16.838 --> 00:20:19.441
  • BUT ONCE THESE PLAGUES ARESTARTING TO BE POURED OUT,
  • 00:20:19.474 --> 00:20:22.644
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THEREIS NO MORE FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:20:22.678 --> 00:20:26.415
  • THERE IS NO MORE HELP.
  • 00:20:26.448 --> 00:20:28.750
  • THE TIME FOR PRAYINGAND REPENTANCE IS OVER.
  • 00:20:28.784 --> 00:20:33.889
  • THERE WILL BE THAT TIMEIN THIS WORLD'S HISTORY,
  • 00:20:33.922 --> 00:20:36.291
  • THERE WILL BE THAT TIMEIN YOUR LIFE AS WELL.
  • 00:20:36.325 --> 00:20:39.728
  • WHEN WE SEARCH THROUGH THEBIBLE, WE SEE, FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:20:39.761 --> 00:20:42.064
  • IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, GODPREACHED THROUGH NOAH,
  • 00:20:42.097 --> 00:20:48.470
  • REPENTANCE, FORGIVENESS THATWAS AVAILABLE TO ANYONE.
  • 00:20:48.503 --> 00:20:50.706
  • NOAH PREACHED THATMESSAGE FOR DECADES,
  • 00:20:50.739 --> 00:20:53.342
  • BUT THEN CAME THE DAYWHEN THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:20:53.375 --> 00:20:56.311
  • GOD SHUT THE DOOR TO THE ARCAND NO ONE WAS ALLOWED IN.
  • 00:20:56.345 --> 00:21:01.983
