Heavenly Father thank You for this new day. Thank you for your grace and mercy on the love that is new every day. Thank you for the presence of your Holy Spirit. Who will be our teacher today I pray that. You would use me as your mouthpiece in Jesus' name. And then. Open your Bibles to. GO LAY sions chapter five we're going to be referring to the again I want to begin by mentioning that the. The Handbook of Seventh Day Adventists Tejal A-G. published by the review and herald in the year two thousand. Defines. Legalism as quote. Pretending to be accepted by God. Or to be able to remain in him simply because of obedience it coat leads people to think they can be saved by keeping the Law of God. And by so doing it turns away from Grace does away with faith and perverts the gospel a perversion of the Gospel is no gospel at all on call that's from the handbook of Seventh Day Adventists see all of. Legalism was the major doctrinal seal logical problem. In the Christian church that sparked the Reformation and by the way next year two thousand and seventeen we will be celebrating the five hundred and a verse or of the Reformation and believe it or not if you know what's happening a lot of people don't but what's happening today. The Lutherans and the Catholics are getting closer and closer and closer together. The Reformation is being scuttled. But the administers is going to celebrate. The anniversary of the Reformation two years ago when I was at a meeting in Baltimore I had lunch with Elder Wilson and I mentioned that to him that was one of my concerns that this nomination needs to do something to celebrate. The Reformation because in my opinion it's still only Protestant church left. That is seeking to be true to the Reformation and especially the principle of sola scriptura Torah the Bible and the Bible although I mean there's a lot more I could tell you because but I don't have time and he way that was legalism was the major issue of spark the Reformation but the Gospel had been perverted long before the Reformation the Apostle Paul dealt. With the problem of legalism especially in Romans and go lation and that. Those two books made a profound impression on Martin Luther. On his theological thinking made an impact and. Consequently on his personal faith experience and many Protestant Cielo Germans and preachers today speak as though legalism was still the problem. In the Christian church and because of that point of view they Sunday assumption that they have understood the Gospel correctly they are suspicious of Seventh Day Adventists I come across that all the time and they accuse us of legalism. Because we keep the seventh day Sabbath they say oh you believe in salvation by works and I have told many of my Lutheran friends that's not true I'm not saved because I keep the law I'm saved because I believe in Jesus but he empowers me to keep the law at. That's what they think they they they have that point of view because we insist not the person who has been saved by grace through faith which is a reformation principle. Will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to obey the moral law of God I always believed that. But by the mid sixties I saw that being eroded that point of view that ad been a star legal is is a very effective small screen hiding the fact that the major problem in the church today is not legalism and when I say the church I'm speaking of the Christian Church in general now the problem is not legalism The problem is licentiousness. I have three see a logical dictionaries and in my library a number of them include a definition of licentiousness you know where I had to go to find a definition. Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary and it defines licentiousness this way. Quote it is quote freedom that allows or residuals do with irresponsibility in other words the licentiousness is a misuse of the freedom that we have given been given by Jesus it means according to Webster quote disregard for rules of personal conduct. Deviation from fact. Form or rule for the sake of the effect that is gained. Now the message of the gospel as I understand it and as I have always understood it and found it to be affirmed within the Seventh Day Adventist Church the message of the gospel is that because of what Jesus did on the cross. Together what with what he is doing as High Priest in the heavenly sanctuary. Say's in him. Sets us free. Yes. From what the power of sin. The power of the flesh and the power of the Devil Docs what Luther believed yes he sets us free. But from the power of Satan the power of the flesh and the power of the devil three for what you know when you're set free from some from son something you're also from set free for something we're set free to walk by the spirit with no hindrances Paul says in Galatians five or sixteen but I say walk by the Spirit and you. Listen Will not gratify the desires of the flesh. I didn't say that God's word says that and then Chapter five or twenty five if. We live by the Spirit. Let us also walk by the Spirit the good news of the Gospel is first that our sin has been forgiven because of the blood of Jesus Praise God. That sort start. But that's not where it ends and second first John three nine no one born of God that is to say no one that has experienced the new birth. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning for God's seed abides in him and listen to the rest of it and he cannot. Cannot. Keep on sending because he has been born of God First John three verse nine so. If you're a believer in Jesus you you not only have. Received the blessing of forgiven all of your sins been forgiven. You have been given freedom from the power of sin you don't have to keep on sinning and leave it or not I have found I have met some at the NIST would don't believe that. There are some out there that don't believe that but that's what the Bible says is what I say. It's what God's word says free from the power of sin to control our lives and licentiousness is the misuse of that freedom it is irresponsible it's a disregard of God's law and God's will what was the motivation behind the Ten Commandments. What motivated God to write with his own finger a ten commandments love because He loves the people he made he said Now I'm going to give you the best possible directions as to how the live your life that's Grace That's Grace licentiousness deviates from God's revealed will for living the Christian life I heard I had and have been has told me you know I'm a preacher he said Oh don't tell me about behavior just tell me about Jesus. The apostle Paul makes it clear in relation five seventeen one he says for the desires of the flesh are a against the spirit. And the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh for these are opposed to one another during conflict to keep you from doing what you want to do. If you're a born again believer you know what you want to do. You want to be Christ like you want to obey your Lord. But that conflict keeps you from doing what you want to do that conflict between the flesh and the Spirit Who is Paul writing to one who wrote that Christians believe or because they alone understand. The conflict between the flesh and the spirit we understand it a conflict it takes place within the heart the Gospel and the good those is that this conflict between flesh and the Holy Spirit It's not an equal or an indecisive conflict Paul writes to people who have received Christ by faith and who have as I said yesterday also received the Holy Spirit. Goes when you receive Christ you receive the Spirit in other words they have already received the power for victory when you accepted Jesus as your savior God gave you the spirit and with the spirit comes the power to to achieve to to experience victory over seven and that and that alone. Is the guarantee that the believe or can by the spirit's power subdue the flesh now why does Paul insert a reference to the law in verse eighteen of elations five he says but if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law why does he say does. In the light of his emphasis on the power of the Holy Spirit in the internal conflict between the flesh and the spirit. The Apostle underlines the truth that neither the law nor obedience to the law has the power. To free us from the desires of the flesh so think that it does. Is legalism remember his earlier statement. In verse sixteen chapter two. When he says we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ I know a lot of friends a lot of people have been Jellicoe So really zero in on that we are justified by the works of the law were not but through faith in Jesus but that does not Council the law do away with it have you heard somebody say that the Law was nailed to the cross was done away with when Jesus was crucified you can't find that in the New Testament chapter three Galatians three verses to nine eleven says all who rely on the works of the law. Are under a curse it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law for the righteous shall live by faith. Yes true praise God. What is the curse what exactly is it a curse of the law the law is not the curse the law itself is not the curse it is the fact that reliance on the works of the law to be justified before God will not and does not accomplish it and then go lay sions five verses sixteen through twenty five Paul's emphasis is on the spirit's power not on the power of the flesh it is the power of the spirit that keeps you from doing the things you want to do. Sin and things the things of the flesh. The power of the spirit that keep you from doing those days remember that the result of walking by the Spirit chapter five or sixteen is that you will not. You will not gratify the desires of the flesh why not because in verse twenty four those who belong to Christ Jesus. Have. Crucified the flesh. With its passions and desires what does it mean to crucify something put to death now Turn to Romans chapter eight. Will begin reading and. Are sorry Romans eight three four God has done. What the law weakened by the flesh could not do by sending his own son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin he condemned to sin in the flesh in order that. The righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled. In US who walk in us who walk not according to the flesh but according to The Spirit for those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh that's all they think about but those who live according to the spirit set their minds on the things of the spirit that's what they think about to set the mind on the flesh is death but to set the mind on The Spirit is life and peace. For the mind of a sudden the flesh is hostile to God for it does not submit. To God's law indeed it cannot those who are in the flesh cannot please God you however this right into believe or remember you however are not in the flesh but in the spirit if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him but if Christ is in you. Although the body is dead because of sin the Spirit is life because of righteousness if. If the spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead. Dwells in the you. He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you there is no better commentary on that passage from Romans. Than the following from thoughts from the moment of blessing. Page one forty one. Where she writes. Quote The Christian life is a battle and a mark but the victory to be gain is not won by human power the field of conflict is the main of the heart that is to say the inner being the battle which we have to fight the greatest battle that was ever fought by man is the surrender of self to the will of God. The yielding of the heart. To the sovereignty of low yielding the heart. To the sovereignty of love love remember is the first fruit of the Spirit as we. Mentioned yesterday why it is. And you remember we've said the word to record used as a gop a. Sacrificial love Why is a God up a. Sacrificial love the first fruit of the Spirit because it is the primary character quality of the spiritual life and is absolutely essential. For Living by the Spirit and walking by the Spirit we are according to if he's inspired with verses one and two. And five one and two to be quote imitators of God as beloved children. And walk in love. As Christ loved us and gave himself up for us so there is the definition of this love as sacrificial because it's like Christ giving up his life sacrificially for us our fragrant offering and sacrifice to God And remember also Romans thirteen verse ten that love. Is the fulfilling of the law that kind of love is the fulfilling of the law the antidote you see friends for four bowls legalism and licentiousness is to surrender self to the will of God. Making it possible for the Holy Spirit to produce his fruit within us because we're not resisting you say instead of resisting we're saying do it God I want those fruit I need the changing our hearts changing the inner being the real you making and molding us to be like Jesus. Christ like and we'll see how important that is when we get to the last fruit I hope we get that far. Self-control How does the Holy Spirit do that how what one means does he use to work within our hearts he uses what the Apostle Paul refers to and if he's in six seventeen as the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God He uses that sword like a surgeon uses a scalpel and he uses it on the desires of the flesh removing them. And replacing them with the fruit of the spirit and that's what it means to walk by the Spirit and live by the Spirit and the precise description of the power of the sword of the Spirit is found in Hebrews four twelve which says for the Word of God is living and active sharper than any two edges sword. Piercing to the division of soul and of spirit of joints and of marrow and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart exposing them discerning them calling them to your attention so the Word of God. Here says I like that word it pierces. It and makes a way into it penetrates incisively. The heart the inner being why because as Ellen White says a religion which is conformity to an observance of what we claim to believe. By the way there's sometimes a. Huge difference between what we believe in our religion it is how we. How we live we exercise what we believe. Is sometimes a big difference anyway religion she says must That's an imperative must begin with emptying and purifying the heart. The heart the inner being and must imperative the nurtured their words cared for by daily prayer. How does the Word of God enter the heart. And accomplish that what avenue does the Word of God you. And here's the answer same source style guidance four forty six she says the medium through which heaven can communicate to man and affect his inmost life of his mother didn't start in the right place the brain and nerves which communicate with the entire system are the only medium. Only. Through which heaven can communicate to man and affect his inner life and that's precisely why Bible reading Bible study Harringay really cool preaching. Are so important that's why meditation on the Scriptures a solemn part. Because you've got to involve your head your brain. And by the way it's for that reason that that the responsibility of the preacher is awesome you can't be flippant about. About the call to preach to proclaim God's truth because it has to be Biblical pretty not all preaching the biblical producer. Has to be true to the word which means a preacher has to know the word God communicates with you through your brain as you read and study and meditate on His Word the Holy Spirit uses the power of God's word to produce the fruit of the Spirit and the heart of the baptized believer and it comes through here. Separation of the head and heart is only about a foot long and this is the way we are cleansed from all unrighteousness head into heart that's to have a new spirit and a head in the heart cannot be separated and in more than they can be separated physically. And when your head stops were working your heart quits and vice versa God's Word is the stimulus that produces a response of faith and obedience and were duly the power is in the word not in the preacher preachers gotta remember that to. No power in the preacher. Power is in the word and if you don't preach the word there is no power. In the preaching so if you have a pastor that preaches the word you praise God for him or her. Not a pastor but any preacher women can preach that you know that. Even if you're not ordained you can preach. Nobody is stopping you you can preach anytime I have a young woman in my congregation. Never took a course in preacher. But if she had been in my class she would have gotten a. God has touched her and when you assert every once in a while in our church she's preaching this coming Sabbath one or gob powers in the word spirit and words are the force that brings about interchange transformation of character and very often it comes in the form of a sudden sharp perception that I like to refer to as an aha moment. I've never had one of those oh boy. I could tell you a story about that off on a take the time another words a moment like one a Bible truth not seen before is suddenly clearer and you sense an immediate change inside that's not that happened to me what with reference to the Sabbath I was studying deeply into us I was still a Lutheran but I was at our seven area the Andrew I knew what this is all about I was sitting in my Carol at the library studying about the Sabbath and I decided well I'm going to I'm going to look at looters large catechism. Because he has a big section on the Ten Commandments. Let me tell you something why would Luther have a large section on the ten commandments and His Large catechism if he believed the law had been done away with it and believe The Anyway I noticed in the section on the Sabbath there was a little change and saw it I got my copy of the German Bible out and I turned to Exodus twenty and I read the Sabbath commandment in German. And it reads good then this of a toggle to even highly guess and then it goes on. Remember the Sabbath day that you keep it holy. Then I noticed that in his large catechism he changed it. So that it reads in german do Sol sed i in fire TOG highly guessed In other words you show how low a day of rest. I sat there literally with my mouth open. I thought lute sir who had such reverence for scripture he didn't dare tamper with it when he translated the Bible into German but when he wrote his old catechism he took liberties and he changed the meaning of the whole common. Commandment you know what the Bible says God sanctified the Sabbath. God made it holy Luther changed it and he said you sanctify a day over us. Only God makes holy. We don't make holy You can't make Sunday holy by keeping it. And in more than you can make Saturday holy by keeping it God made it holy We just keep it holy that was a ha an aha moment for me sitting there in my library Carol you know that they are hot was the realisation that these at Venice or right on a comes to the Sabbath It's not that they are right it's to. Me It's that that is what the Bible teaches. That's what the Bible says whoa. You know you can and you can have that experience when hate is replaced by love sadness by Joy strife VI P.S. and this is the kind of spiritual experience or what you would call a believing faith. That makes it possible not to lose heart why not because. Second Corinthians four seventeen says though our altar nature is wasting away I know what that means I'm eighty seven and I'm suffering from a disease called co-op. See OIS. Creeping old age. Though our alter nature is wasting away our inner nature which is meant by the word soul by the way in the Bible. Is being renewed day by day. And this is what enables us to efficient five eight walk as children of light for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true and try to discern what is pleasing to God And furthermore. Take no part. No part and the unfruitful works of darkness. But instead acts well. Let me remind you again a list of the fruit of the spirit. Love joy peace patience kindness goodness faithfulness gentleness. Self-control there are nine now do you see any difference between the first three and the other six the first three are. Essential inner qualities of a Christ like character they have more to do with being with what you are a loving peaceful joyful person the rest have more to do with what you do how you live life. How you demonstrate Christ like most Christ like character manifested in other words if you are a loving peaceful joyful person. You will be patient and kind and good and gentle and cetera. In the way you deal with. Relate to other peoples your spouse your children your neighbors your friends it's all a little summary here the essence of a GAAP a love is sacrifice. The giving of oneself for the sake of another and that is the fundamental principle of the institution of marriage which is largely being forgotten today and that's more as I said yesterday more than fuzzy warm feeling. It was demonstrated by God the Father and His Son as John three sixteen tells us so clearly. God so loved the world that he gave he sacrificed. His son. Why. A tour ever believes in him showed up perish but have everlasting life the truth is that when you unite in marriage you live for the other person on July tenth we're going to have a memorial service in our church investment. For our dear friends. Dr Victor and Bertha big for she died in February he died in April and that does not surprise me it didn't surprise me because when she died. He lost half of the cell you know it's interesting. It's fascinated me for some or sometimes just the story of creation in Genesis after every day creation was finished God said it was good and at the very end he said it was very good but done a little while later after he had created Adam he said this is not good he said it is not good for the man to be alone I will make a help for him a person. Special creation design perfect and so the his companion that's an amazing story I don't know what I would do without my wife I don't know what I would do when things reach that point in our life one of us is going to be first left alone I don't know what I'll do my that's my experience only the Spirit of God can produce the kind of love that we're talking about here. And those who have been born again in other words surrendered to price and what follows is God like living that's real joy. This is not superficial happiness. Jesus shows the connection between sacrificial love and joy in John fifteen nine to thirteen he says as the father has loved me so have I I love you abide in my love if you keep My commandments. You will abide in my love did you hear that another words keeping his God's commandments is abiding in his low so not just a legal thing. It's a relationship if you keep My commandments you will abide in my love just as I have kept my father's come in minutes and abide in his Lo. These things I have spoken to you that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment that you love one another excuse me to see who this is. Mine. Hello. Hello whatever you do I know who that is anyway. I have it on so my wife can call me if she needs me she's at the motel he says these things I have spoken to you that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be full this is my commandment that you love one another. As I have loved you. Rater love has no one than this. But someone lays down his life. For his friends we may have sorrow no as John sixteen twenty two says but I will see you again Jesus. And your hearts will rejoice and no one. Will take your joy from you. The apostle Paul says in Philippians two one and two so if there is any encouragement. In Christ and any comfort from love and the participation in the spirit and the affection and sympathy. Complete my joy by being of the same mind having the same love being in full accord and of one mind James one verse two count it all joy my brothers when you me trials. Of various kinds for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness in other words stay true. Don't give up stick with it why can we rejoice Jude twenty four twenty five now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling falling and to present you blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy to the only god our savior so Jesus the glory Majesty dominion and author of the for all time now and forever. Now I'm going to take a little pause here because I need to find out who this is. If you'll bear with me. Good morning when. You're. Not important right now. Thank you. Is it. Possible to be well legal is. Well if you're a legal list and you claim to be a born again believer you're a hypocrite. Pardon me. Not perfectly. That's right. We always have to remember that sanctification or growth in holiness is a process it's not a state and it's a lifelong. Process. Goes all right. Now I want to start to talk a little bit about peace and patience will continue that tomorrow. We have twenty more minutes. Remembering that they are the spirits fruit and that they cannot be achieved only recede fruit of the Spirit are gifts. From God They are the spirits fruits not ours. In other words we don't have them we can only receive them like you do with the gift. Of all the receive it the cycle for it usually when we read or hear the word peace. We we think of the opposite of conflict or warfare such as enmity or strife or fits of anger war we think of freedom from disorder in society when we have to appease and in the world and of course that's what it is but one thing ought to be glaringly obvious this kind of peace cannot be achieved by human effort of course it's noble to try and humanity would fail in its duty to itself. If it were not to try. The motives behind the League of Nations. Established after the horrors of World War One. I've always enjoyed history and I have read. A number of books about the First World War you come up in magine. The horror. And what life was like for all of those young men on both sides. In the trenches. In France during the First World War It's just horrible when you read about it if I remember correctly more. More soldiers were killed in the First World War and in the Second World War and the way the motives behind the League of Nations that was. Organized to keep the world at peace were they were commendable what President Wilson did. To try to do that was commendable as well as the motives behind the establishment of the United Nations that followed the Second World War. And you know we can thank Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman for what they did know was commendable matter what your political party affiliation is you have to recognize you know and be willing to say it was coming to try to do that and that all of that was certainly in harmony with some thirty four Verse fourteen which says turn away from evil and do good seek peace and pursue it and then the qualifier that's added in verse fifteen it says the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry but both of those attempts the League of Nations and the United Nations have failed to achieve the goal A League of Nations did not prevent World War two United Nations have not prevented any war sent and two hundred and sixty six hopes have not achieved the goal of relieving mankind of war either the history tells us a long sad story of tragic human failure in this regard. And no wonder we have. Suddenly the worst mass shooting in our history you begin to wonder what next tragic human failure the memorial in the U. US cemetery that's on up on the bluff above beach and Normandy. Reads like this I was there I saw it. I wasn't in the war I was too young but I've been there visited there reads like this disease speaking of the dead are buried there thousands. Of American soldiers. These endured all and gave all that mankind might enjoy freedom and inherit peace where is it now when I stood there and I read them I look out over this sea of. White crosses and then I looked at some of the markers and most of them were young men. Your age in their early twenty's in their twenty's and I thought it was all for nothing in other words it didn't achieve peace. Lasting peace it ended a war yes. But it didn't achieve. Because humanity cannot come up with the solutions for that and spite of so much human effort on sacrifice and untold expense. The world is no closer to universal peace and human accord than it has ever been when I sat in front of my television on nine eleven and I I watched the second plane crash into the. So the tower of their. New York. And. I asked why why is shooting on Sunday Why what's the problem why can't people get along with each other I remember when I was young and my family were Swede friends my grandparents came from Finland but they were Swedish speaking people and I grew up in Waukegan Illinois just a few miles from Chicago and the City of Chicago was settled largely by immigrants from Finland and Sweden and Norway and Denmark and Germany and Poland and Italy and they lived in separate neighborhoods and you know the kind of ethnic enclaves and as the young men grew up they formed gangs and they were conflict in conflict with each other all the time. Why. You know what is it that motivates it's human prejudice and hatred Why is what we need and want so badly so elusive Why is it that everything done to find didn't achieve it produces the opposite what is the solution that eludes the best efforts of mankind to remember Paul turning a corded from him yesterday Christian psychiatrist he defines the problem as he what he calls a a form of quote enter national mental disease on Paul and he calls it the neurosis which he explains is the repression of conscience I think is right and that's the reality that is described by the Apostle Paul in Romans seven fifteen when he says I don't understand my own actions I don't understand the actions of the human race for I do not do what I want but I do the very thing I ate. You see the repression of the instinct to do right is followed by the repression of conscience and that is the neurosis that is the disease and it gets easier. And easier to do and the consequence is that it made Paul feel so wretched. Used the word wretched all wretched man that I am that he cries out in verse twenty four who will deliver me from this body of death you see the problem is that you can you can repress conscience but you cannot eliminate it because God created us with a conscience it causes an inner conflict from which we have to be didn't live or set free that's why. It's so essential. To do evangelism you know I know that everybody has to work. Everybody has got a are now living. Raise a family. Deal with all of that and to have to sit through another series of meetings you know for another series of events was a meeting. And all folks will grow Oh no not again. I got all the stuff I need to do and I can understand from the point of view of a Pastor I understand my people but. The need is still there we have to we have to share the faith with other people because otherwise the world is going to get worse and worse and worse what the Bible says that's what's going to happen. But there is something we can do about it we get more and more people in the kingdom as much as possible. You know. When we were repressed something without it being eliminated. We got wrecked it. Would get sick the worst sickness of all the Bible calls it. Will compound it by the realisation. That nothing we tried to do about it has an effect at all even though it may be commendable thank God for Martin Luther King what he did was commendable what has it's all the problem. Because. People are still all of human creatures is this system a melody of modern man kind of society culture and nations. Totally unconscious of the real problem of an inner conflict and every human heart the cause of which. Is the materialistic and amoral civilisation is not cheap a bowl of responding to our deepest inner needs nor is it capable of providing answers. To some of some of our most profound inner question a moral means more than not having moral that means totally lacking any kind of moral sensibility or awareness. And you know of if you know what's happening in our own society we're becoming an amoral society. Just do your own thing there are no morals not aware of the real problem. People project their troubles and their torments on everything else on our institutions on our parents on our schools our government. The economics politics etc etc etc Modern folks are full themselves into thinking that they have succeeded in eliminating all that you. Know the words no such thing as good vs evil. No such thing as right vs wrong. They have eliminated all moral consciousness. I think the world tells us that things like absolute truth. And faith. Are not just unimportant. They don't even exist in spite of that great lie. People somehow sense that these kind of things are important I'm becoming aware that more and more people are becoming aware that something is terribly wrong and that is an opportunity for us. This is why we do eventually. This is why we do unlock revelation. I think I'm going to end of there for today picked us up tomorrow Now please understand that I'm not trying to depress you. But I have to be honest and say I I do want to make you aware if you're not aware. Because Deanne sir. Is the gospel the good news the fruit of the Spirit of God will produce in us if we let.
