born in honor I mean you must understand this one you send the Holy Spirit to work on Longhorn 's and your angels and let us see what you want us to in Jesus name the plant salvation is not nearly assess instructions it is that into a heavenly computer that Nexus salvation upon race the plan of salvation also is not merely the death of an immortal being is much greater it is a set of exquisite plans that work methodically and systematically for the removal of sin from the universe completely that plan of salvation has three very specific entities are part to make it actually work I called in the three days of salvation first of all it must have an author every plan of salvation work they were to exist one must have an author work there was not it would not be any plan of having to talk about the first leg it would be meaningless for you to say that you were saved there was no author of salvation secondly every plan of salvation it would exist would have to have a second day and that an agent because whereas the plan of salvation can be authored in order for it to actually work it must go from an idea to a reality something theoretical something actual there is a gap have to be bridged from sin to know send when we fell a huge chasm was introduced man fell from his lofty position and now it must be restored there is a huge gap at the reclaimed by an agent at that point it almost works yet there is one last part that really is needed to make it work and that is ambassadors because the plan of salvation message taken not only from a reality but only from reality into the whole world because they did not go into the whole world that you would have such a claim against God in the judgment when he says see you with how the something from their possible salvation you must be withholding something of your system of government so we need are three particular things and make it work seven author must have an agent and it must have ambassadors determining your Bible to John chapter three John said that they were currently studying verses sixteen through twenty one John chapter three starting in verse sixteen perhaps the most famous passage of Scripture ever for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish to have everlasting life for God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be said a note of it we already have an author were posted this on into the world for God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son Lord God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved ultimately it points back not the sun but to God God ultimately gave rise a plan for the salvation of humanity for that gap to be bridged with an author and also we have an aging Broadway God sent his son into the world into the world that gap with bridge and by the way then the content is then also tells us who does it if there were an exclamation presenting of how it came into existence we would not have primary we have an excuse for sin but there is no way to understand exactly how sin came into existence but we do have a definition present first on three four seven as a transgression of the law and that law would be God 's law and is a transgression of God 's law and brother it would not make any sense for anybody subject to God 's law to have any say in what happens to the transgressors of that law for instance let's say I'm driving down Anderson Street best Lamoni University at eighty five miles an hour now with her and the delimiter is thirty five miles round and I get pulled over and I'm given a ticket now it would not make any sense for me to say beyond their not actually I have the authority to free myself also it would not make sense for an innocent person such as the passenger sitting next to me to say no actually I have the authority to preempt the all persons have authority to agree somebody in subject to somebody's law is the author of the lines down God himself only had the power to save people from sin no one else because it's his law has been transgressed back to John chapter three my regular finger in their run regard back but a lot starting verse eighteen he did believe it on him is not condemned but he that believe not is condemned already because he had not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God and this is the condemnation that light is come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light notice for a second something in verse nineteen and this is the condemnation is made very clear here why somebody is condemned or not condemn it is that light is come into the world the agent has brought to light from God into the world and the condemnation comes in we reject it interestingly the combination does not come because of our it does not say that this is the condemnation that your bar it says this is the condemnation that light is coming to the world and net love the darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil whereas there was darkness there was the opportunity of no condemnation light is come into the world the same thing is talk about in Romans chapter five permit me to Romans chapter five Robinson five starting in verse seventeen the Bible says for it by one man's offense death reigned by one much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the righteousness shall reign in life by one with Christ therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life then autocephalous in this parallels with John three there is a free gift that comes upon all men to proceeding out from inside and yet in John three light is come into the world as a free gift that comes upon all men and the light comes in the world and men are condemned depending on what they do with that light also in Romans five in verse seventeen they would receive abundance of grace and great gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one Jesus Christ and in verse eighteen of John three even believed on him just not condemn strong parallel between the light and the free gift of freedom comes to all men in the world the light comes on and in the world and if you accept that Reagan you have life if you accept the license you are not condemned God does not use force it would not make sense for it not to be a free gift in other words God would not say I foresee to be saved or I force you to be lost note neither because God is love he gives everyone the chart hi Austin the free gift of salvation why did come into the world and if you expect the life you are not condemned what it was Lyla stern but started back on John chapter one release getting through don't everyone admit John chapter one starting in verse one in the beginning was the word and the Word was with God and the Word was God the same was in the beginning with God 's work in him was life and the life was the light of men in the light sign up in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not resign that was the true light which lie to every man that cometh into the world notice it likes every man that cometh into the world verse fourteen and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory to glory as of the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth verse eighteen no man hath seen God at any time the only begotten son is in the bosom of the father he declared him what was the role of Jesus Christ he was the agent of salvation he brought light from the father the free gift into the world God opinions now is lying any good came and brought that light into the world that all might have the possibility of salvation that free gift of no condemnation license as revealed in the gospel of Jesus Christ is a free gift of salvation Jesus Christ is the agent know what about Ambassador you simply be a atonement of Jesus Christ is not enough to make everything work for it it was you would all be staying and all the world would be safe without question there's something more there is a choice involved in picking out whether or not you're going to accept that light it's a choice that comes to come across every person in the world and there's only one way to make that happen and that is to take the news throughout the world there must be ambassadors back you don't get the three person going to discover what happens if we reject that light in them will discover what happened not forget that light don't get the three verse twenty for everyone to do a evil hate yet the light neither cometh to the light lest his deeds should be redrew notice why they reject the light they do not want their days to be repro they know that if they came like they would feel guilty but they forget that whether or not they come the light is still guilty and brother the only way to become not guilty is succumbed by the Holy Spirit in working on these people because they know what their situation is they know that if they came to the light their deeds would be redrew and yet they choose not to come to light and yet notice again that they are condemned because they chose not to come to the light I will look at that disrespect a little bit more John fifteen Don Sam and Dean verse twenty two the BIOS and if I had not come and spoken under them they had not had sin but now they have no cloak for their sin verse twenty four if I had not done among them the words which none other man did they had not had sin but now they have both seen and hated both me and my father if it were possible for the race to exist and yet Jesus to have not come into the world and therefore the world would've been kept in darkness there would be no sin at the Bible says in John fifteen but the fact is the light has come into the world so what were states being near it that we are held accountable more once we know Jesus makes it clear that when we come to the knowledge of the truth we must choose whether or not we're actually going to accept that you and that is the basis for our acceptance or nonacceptance of God every sin of ignorance has provision in the atonement of Christ Jesus yet that does not mean every sin of level in the ignorance is provision in the atomic Christ the big difference between ignorance and Wilco in ignorance let's say that I know then if something comes to my knowledge all be held responsible not in all I love that makes it I don't learn that they doesn't make that that is willful ignorance yet Christ came to take away all excuse percent when the final accounts are determined all will have had opportunity you will have opportunity physical that was set by Winston Churchill once and that is men will occasionally stumble over the truth but most of the time they pick themselves up and keep going as if nothing had ever happened because of Jesus Christ occasionally we stumble over the truth and were forced to make a decision either we stayed out in submission to Christ and change or we pick ourselves up and keep going so what happens if we stay down and chain take a look at John three twenty one John chapter three verse twenty one but even do it through to the light that his deeds may be manifested that they are wrought in God the Holy Spirit is working here for the deeds are wrought in God they realize what God is showing them they realized the eternal weight of their decisions and they realized that they must surrender their life to Christ Jesus made an absolutely double statement in a couple places out John chapter eight John chapter eight verse twelve then spake Jesus again at them saying I am the light of the world he that follows me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life Jesus said I am the light of the world but whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but walked in the light that Christ brings in the world now to Matthew chapter five absolutely credible deed of the eye in the light of the world and yet in Matthew five verse fourteen yet a lot to the world year the light of the world a city that is set on a hill cannot be net neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel but on a candlestick and a given life and all that are in the house that's a light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven light shines into our soul lights up our soul in Atlanta designed back in Warsaw data that I am the light of the world that you are also the light of the world because I world that means you you are the lights of the world let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven that is an awesome calling it vastly different then staying dark and just not the US it will not end a well lighted by your glory signaling that the big brother government to instruct more second-grade instructor alarm birthday for God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ just as God at the beginning when it was dark on the earth that letter so when God comes your hearts he said let there be light and there is license just that he commanded the light to Center Dartmouth you have signed in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of great crises is what is the larvae during America when Moses asked God to show him his glory what did God do it he seldom an awesome life so no he said the Lord the Lord God merciful and gracious and long-suffering Saturday showed him his character God 's glory is his character and so when the light shines in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God what happens the light of God 's glory the light of God 's character signs into our hearts we had changed we can license to the world we are never ever ever the same again first John chapter one restaurant after one starting in verse five this man is the message which we have heard of him and declare unto you that God is light and in him is no darkness at all if we say that we have Elizabeth M and walk in darkness we live and do not the truth but if we walk in the light as he is in the light we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanses us from how much they all sin absolutely all say the light signed in our hearts just as the glory the character of God shines back out of us all in is when promised our potential it absolutely incredibly vast we can actually be changed from what we used to be into the likeness of Jesus Christ a good example of how this actually works can be found in Isaiah fifty eight what happens when the light shines out of our hearts starting in verse six is not this the fact that I have chosen the loose the bands of wickedness to undo the heavy burdens and to let the oppressed go free and that you break every yoke is not to deal my bread to the hungry and that thou bring born down the lighthouse when nastiest the naked the back cover him and the hide not thyself from an old West then shall thy light break forth as the morning and nine HealthSouth spring forth speedily in the righteousness shall go before the end the glory of the Lord shall be there rearward it is our privilege if we let the light of God shine through our life to be a tendril of light that shines out into thick darkness of the earth to push away the tide of evil and the celibate nonclients absolutely incredibly it is our privilege if we except that lights so that like the world as the light of the gospel not the light of any gospel but the light of the true gospel not a gospel that simply said you're forgiven and you just happily translate not a gospel that said you're forgiven and perhaps you possibly should live a good life but a sectional part of the gospel no a gospel that actually comes into view changes you what gives all understand changes you to be right just like Christ with righteous to live that life that Christ lived in it ultimately makes you like the to be absolutely beautiful shining light beacon of light for dark and going back to our privileged I think this is must be we illustrated in figs I think that he will start in verse
