Father in heaven you've been very good to us this week we thank you for the blessings that we have received and I pray that this evening we would be bless again and that you would give me the words to speak may our hearts beat such. And may we. Gain a greater appreciation and in what it truly means to sing the song of Moses on the song of the Lamb this is my career in Jesus and then in this hotel for the most of this evening is the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb and I invite you to turn in your Bibles to Revelation Chapter fifteen. Starting in verse one. Revelation fifteen. Starting in verse one and I saw another sign in. Gray in marvelous seven angels having the seven last plugs for in them is filled up the wrath of again. After Revelation fourteen which paints a picture of the three angels messages which produce the one hundred forty four thousand which leads to the harvest of the righteous and the wicked revelation fifteen begins with a scene in which we see the seven angels ready to pour out the seven last play us but before the seven miles plagues are described God shows us what it is like for those who gained the victory over the be. So that they don't receive the outpouring of the seven last boy eggs in other words God is giving us a picture of what is needed to gain this victory so that you don't receive the seven last plagues Now let me give you a little clue I don't think I need to say this but if you read the actual seven last plagues and Revelation sixteen it becomes quickly apparent you don't want to receive the mark of the beast. In Revelation fifty scene shows us how to gain the victory nobody wants to get the mark of the beast but how do we gain the victory over that marred Rebelution Chapter fifteen starting in verse two and I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire in them that had gotten the victory over the be done over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name stand on the sea of glass having the harps of God So we see a picture of heaven where we see the sea of glass and there is a special group of people these are the ones who lived in the last days this is not describing all the righteous who have ever lived it's only the righteous who live at the end of the world who gained the victory over the beast over his image over the mark and over the number of his name. Right those who lived in Old Testament times it can't be said of them that they gained the victory over the beast it is especially describing those who were alive at the time when all the world wonders after the beast these are the special group of people. Who gain the victory. Over the beast and over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name stand on the sea of glass having the harps of again. And I pray by the grace of God that we would be among that number verse three Chelles us more about this people and they sing the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb saying gray and marvelous are they are by works Lord God Almighty just untrue are they ways the king of saints who shall not fear the oh lord in glorify the name for the only are holy for all nations shall come and worship before the for they judgments are made manifest the special group of people sing the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the land they have the Lambs father's name written on their foreheads as Revelation fourteen says this is the one hundred forty four thousand singing the special song. Now a couple of interesting points they sing the song of Moses the servant of God Moses is the scribe as the servant of God and the one hundred forty four thousand and Revelation Chapter seven are also described as the servants of God who receive the seal of God in their foreheads they've gained the victory over the beast and over his image and over the market over the number of his name therefore they have received the seal of God in their foreheads and just as Moses as the Scraw is the scribes as the servant of God the one hundred forty four thousand are described as the servants of. If you want to know what it means to be a servant of God Study Romans Chapter six. Romans Chapter six now. When you sing a song in the Bible a song that is sung describes what the scribes and experience in this group of people are able to sing a song that describes an experience that matches Moses and the lamb and the lamb is Jesus of course Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world in the Book of Revelation He is the Lamb who had been slain in Revelation Chapter five he's the Lamb of God who was slain from the foundation of the world in Revelation thirteen eight and here we see more than a Revelation fourteen the hundred forty four thousand stand with the lamb and the lambs fathers name is written on their foreheads and in Revelation fifteen we see that the hundred forty four thousand sing the song of the Lamb as one. This is quite an experience if you can sing a song that matches the experience of not only Moses but Jesus. That's not a song that can just be sung by anybody this is a special experience with a special song sung by a special people who have gained the victory over the beast and over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name if you break that down into its components the beast we understand is the first beast the Revelation thirteen with seven heads and ten horns the anti-Christ beast who the dragon gave us power see in authority to all the world wonders after it's the beast that unites church and state in in an idolatrous way or in a way that causes spiritual fornication to be committed in the image of the beast is the union of church and state the mark of the beast is Sunday worship and the number of the name of the beast the six hundred sixty and six now I'm just going to make a little side point in the Greek six hundred sixty and six is used in Greek to add up to six hundred sixty and six it's not six and six and six there are some people who try to say that six six six is just six three times the number of a man is Cirque's on the number of Goddess of and six isn't first seven is perfection but friends in the Greek it's six hundred sixty and six is not six and six and six if you add six three times you get eighteen simple math and six hundred sixty six is the title of the pope and clearly there are going to be things that happen with this beast power that the pope is going to have a lot of say and so we as God's people need to know exactly what we're gaining the victory over we're getting the victory over the beast that whole system and over the image of the beast which is the union of church and state and over the mark of the beast which is Sunday worship and over the number of his name which is the title of the pope vicarious feely idea I vi care of the Son of God we gain the victory over a completely false system of worship that goes against the true worship of God. In we sing the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb. Who was Moses go to Deuteronomy Chapter eight hundred fifteen we know that Moses is the scribe as being the meekest man on the earth and that was not in a proud way he truly was the meekest man on the earth do you know me eighteen verse fifteen this is Moses speaking to the children of Israel before he dies and he serves as the Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a prophet from the midst of the of vibra of the end like unto me unto him ye shal Hearken now who is this prophet that the Lord would raise up in the midst of them that would be like Moses was the Messiah. Go to Acts chapter seven verse thirty seven to underscore this point this is Steven giving his sermon just before he is put to death and has as he's speaking to the stiff necked leaders of the house of Israel he says of Jesus this is that Moses which serve under the Children of Israel a prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brother in like under me him show you here so. Stephen under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit as recorded in the book of Acts is verifying what Moses of in Deuteronomy eighteen that Jesus is the Messiah who is the one that would be like Moses Now Moses had to be a special man for Jesus to be compared to him. Now most as wasn't as good as Jesus you know why wabi Asli because all sinned and come short of the glory of God and we know that Moses and the book of Hebrews makes it very clear that Moses was not as good as Jesus but there is a comparison for Jesus to even be compared to Moses tells us the kind of man that Moses was when he was connected to go. In chapter three B. King of Jesus it says in verse one that he is the apostle and high priest of our profession a number two it says who was faithful to him that appointed him as also Moses was faithful in all his house Jesus was faithful Moses was faithful but we keep reading for this man was counted worthy of more glory than moves is in as much as he would have to build the house half more on her then the house for every houses built by some men but he the bill all things as God and Moses verily was faithful in all his house as a servant for its just mony of those things which were to be spoken to her but Christ as a son over his own house whose house are we so clearly Christ is greater the Moses yet it says Moses was faithful as a servant in his house for a testimony of those things which are which were to be spoken after Moses was the meekest man in all the earth if you read the chapter in patriarchs and prophets on the death of Moses Elam White says of Moses that he was the greatest poet the greatest writer the greatest the leader there are so many superlatives to describe the meekest man on the earth because of his connection to God. And God the last day people are going to sing the song of Moses. But what especially about Moses is going to connect to God's last the people there are so many other things we could describe we can talk about how when he came down from the mount and he saw the children of Israel dancing around the Golden Calf he rebukes and fearlessly when his brother Aaron had no spine allowed to go unchecked and Ellen White says in her writings that most people in the church would prefer leaders like Aaron because Aaron makes them feel good about their son. Moses was a make man but he didn't stray away from calling some by as right in its right name and in fact he made the children of Israel drink the gold that was in the creek after they burned the golden calf and how about. But the song of Moses. Is a song described in the Bible and in fact some of you probably know the scripture song for most of us fifteen. Let's go to Exodus fifteen. This is in scripture. The song of Moses and I was returning there remember Moses is also the man who when God became so upset with the children of Israel he said I will destroy this people and make of you a great nation and an Exodus thirty two says God If you do that your name will be profaned among the heathen because they'll say the God of the children of Israel just love them out of the world and us to destroy them and then your character will be misrepresented to the surrounding nations God please don't do that if anything you could blot my name out of the Book of Life so that they would be saved no. Let me ask you this when you see apostasy in the church is that your attitude toward the a Fosters. Are you ready to sing the song of Moses or are you saying they're going to. Just wait til the like a fire coming they're going to be sorry for that apostasy they were out on. Or do you have the spirit of Moses Lord. My name out so that you could save them let's look at the song of Moses an Exodus fifteen. Exodus fifteen. Starting in verse one. Then saying Moses and the children of Israel the song of the Lord and spake saying I will sing and to the Lord for he if triumph gloriously the horse and his rider Hathi thrown into the sea the Lord is my strength and sun and he has become my salvation he is my God and I will prepare him in habitation my father's God and I will exalts and verse three The Lord is a man of war the Lord as his name pharaohs chariots and his host healthy cast into the sea his chosen captives also are drowned in the ribs see and you can read on down through the verses and it keeps beaking of this glorious miraculous victory that God has be stowed upon his people when the Egyptian army was drowned in the Red Sea after they successfully passed through the Red Sea as if it were dry land now let's just think about the song for a moment this song is a song of the experience of Moses and the children of Israel when they experienced triumph at the hands of their enemies when it seemed as if they were going to be wiped off the face of the earth. If you think about it from a human perspective the Egyptians have been through ten plagues and they've just lost the first born of their children and the first born of their animals and they're angry they've lost their for their labor force they've lost their firstborn of their children and of their livestock not to mention all of the other damage that the plagues of done and they're coming to exact retribution and when the children of Israel look up and they see the Egyptian army coming in front of them as. Red see the on the other side is a man is a mountain and behind them is the Egyptian army there is no way out they aren't trained to fight they can't. Gather together quickly him hastily form an army and say let's do the best we can and see if we can fight them and push them off they have no battle skills they have no military skills they will be wiped out if they try to fight them they're going to go back to for slavery otherwise if they try to go into the Red Sea They're going to drown there's no way to climb a mountain before being overtaken by the army there is no way out and then. When it seems as a. They are all going to die or all go back to slavery the hand of God The liver's for them in the most miraculous way this pillar of cloud shows up it becomes a pillar of white for them of the pillar of darkness to the Egyptians and then the Red Sea is opened up and they pass through as if the Red Sea is dry land they get to the other side and the Egyptians after having gone through templates and sometimes so I wonder how foolish could you be after having been through ten plagues. Already where you've seen the hand of God then the Egyptians foolishly go into the Red Sea and the water starts seeping into their path and they get stuck and before it's too once it's too late for them to turn around they realize they have met their end and they all meet their in and their drowned in the sea and God's people meet a signal victory from God's delivering hand on their behalf. That is the song of Moses don't you think if you had been among the children of Israel and you were singing the song you would have sung it with gusto and with energy and with triumph and with praise and thanksgiving your heart would be filled because you know that you are now on your way to the promised land that you will never see the Egyptians again your captors your slave masters those who were bent for your destruction will never be in your life again. What a moment of deliverance. Oh what it says in patriarchs and prophets page two eighty nine. The song in the great deliverance which it commemorates maiden and an impression never to be a feast from the memory of the Hebrew people from age to age it was echoed by the prophets and singers of Israel testifying that Jehovah is the strength and deliverance of those who trust in him but listen to those. This is paid for in prophets page two eighty nine that song does not belong to the Jewish people alone. It points forward to the destruction of all the photos of righteousness and the final victory of the Israel of God going on in the next period she says the great lesson here is for all time off in the Christian life is be so by dangers and beauty seems hard to perform the imagination pictures impending room before in bondage or death behind yet the voice of God speaks clearly go forward we should obey this command even though our eyes cannot penetrate the darkness and we feel the cold waves about our feet the obstacles that hinder our progress will never disappear before a halting doubting spirit those who defer obedience will every shadow of uncertainty disappears and there remains no risk of failure or defeat will never obey at all. This song is sung by those who step forward in faith into this path. With the human eye saying we're supposed to walk through water and then up our parts the Sea parts and it turns into dry land and this is a symbol of the victory of God's last the people the one hundred forty four thousand who will face circumstances that are equally trying if not worse we will be facing a death the Creed we won't be able to buy or sell. And if you've been storing up food in the pantry for the time of trouble it's going to be. So if you try to get one of those survival bunkers where you have everything stored away for the time of trouble someone's going to find it and you're going to lose it anyway. So you're going to be cut off from all earthly human support. And there will be no way out. And that not only are you facing a death the tree where the enemies of God's people are coming to destroy you you will be going through Jacob's time of trouble where it will also feel as if God has forsaken you if you repeat your XOM prophets and you read about Jacob's Light of wrestling he fell as if the angel that he was wrestling with was an enemy and in fact Ellen White says that the angel who was the pre incarnate Christ reminded Jacob of his son in addition to Satan reminding Jacob of his son so Satan is reminding Jacob of us and Jesus reminding Jacob of us and and that is what's going to happen to God's people when we go through Jacob's time of trouble will be facing a death the creek were cut off from all or three Sopore we don't know where our next meal is coming from by faith we claim the promise of bread will be given us our water will be sure will be relying on angels probably to sustain us and it seems as if we won't be able to get through because we're going to be surrounded by all earthly foes and it almost seems as if God is reminding us of arson as well from our past before we've confessed and had arson forgiven. And then. Gloriously just when it seems that we are going to be wiped off of planet earth Jesus will appear as the great deliver. And you don't think that when one hundred forty four thousand sing the song of Moses the song of Deliverance this is going to be the greatest song of all time there will never be a song sung like the song of Moses and I pray that I will be there to sing it now if we tarry if we have to tarry until Jesus comes and we are laid to rest before that time To God be the gory to those who will sing that song someday but I pray and hope that I would be among that number who sings the song. And we look out the song the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb and we're saying I want to sing the song the victory I want to sing the song of deliverance I want to be among that number that gains the victory over the beast and over as a mage and over as Mark and over the number of his name I want to be like a Moses and the children of Israel who it seemed as if they were facing certain defeat and then they see the destruction of God's enemies I want to be among that number that sings the song. But you know Revelation fifteen so that the song is not just the song of moves it's also the song of the Lamb now I took you to Exodus fifteen and that should be easy to remember revelation fifteen song of Moses Exodus fifteen song of Moses when it comes to the song of the Lamb. There is nowhere in the Bible where you can churn to a passage of Scripture where it says and the lamb opened his mouth and saying. It's not there. Your rectally but it is there churned to Isaiah fifty three I was a chapter fifty three if you want to know how to gain the victory over the beasts. If you want to sing the song of Moses which is a song of deliverance and victory you will need to sing the song of the Lamb as well. In Isaiah Chapter fifty three it starts off in verse one which says who have believed their report and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed now I feel came to a greater understanding of what verse one means when I was studying the book of Romans and in Romans chapter and verse sixteen it says but they have not all obeyed the gospel for I.Z.'s If Lord who have believed our report and what Paula saying in the book of Romans he's saying and it's actually the gospel message to the Jews and all have believed the gospel message of Jesus is the messiah what Paul is saying is we preach the gospel and even if not everybody who hears the gospel believes the Gospel we're going to preach the gospel anyway because it will have it will have its effect on the true heart of believer and so Jesus comes to this earth and amazingly even when God was on earth in human form many did not believe when God revealed himself in the person of Jesus Christ why did they not believe verse two for he shall grow up before him as a tender plant and as a rule out of a dry ground he has no form nor comeliness and when we shall see him there is no beauty that we should desire Him In other words Jesus was not a flashy person he wasn't someone that did things in a flashy way to try to attract people to boost the numbers and his church he did things in a way that were modest and some people and because of that the Jewish leaders who were looking for a flashy and grandiose some powerful in their mind they rejected someone who came like a plant that was a root out of dry ground because he had no form or come with us verse three he is despised and rejected of moon a man of SARS and a coin and with a grief and we had as it were faces from him he was despised and we esteemed him not do you think if you're going to sing the song of the Lamb that you want to have an experience similar to Jesus at some point. You're trying to do the work of the Lord you're following the counsel and it feels sometimes as if your efforts are not being rewarded look leave the numbers to God simply follow God's way and has most of the way he has designed it to be you know one time I heard Pastor CD Briggs give a sermon in California when I was at Loma Linda and we we drove an hour and a half to hear him speak because he didn't come around that often he lived on the East Coast so we drove over on a Friday night this was back in two thousand and five and he was preaching a Friday night most a judge and he said you know I'm tired of people saying that we need to make things more. Attractive to the world and to dumb down our message that we so the will bring more in number isn't and I'll never forget those mommies is we don't need more of people like that we need people like that to leave so the lot of rain can be poured out. Numbers are not an evidence that God's people are ready. Do we have the character of Jesus who was meek and lowly Wellston if you're doing all this flashy stuff. To boost your numbers that's not an evidence of the moving of the Holy Spirit. An evidence of the movement of the Holy Spirit is that you were following the simplicity of Jesus and the humility of Jesus Jesus when he came to this earth many didn't believe him because he wasn't flashy and shiny first for surely he is more in our griefs and carried our sorrows yet we did esteem him stricken smitten of God and afflicted but he was wounded for our transgressions he was bruised for our iniquities the chastisement of our peace was upon him and with His stripes we are healed for six all we like sheep have gone astray we have turned every one to his own way and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all and by the way I was going to make a passing point there are some strangely in adding to them who have adopted this idea this concept of what's called the moral influence theory where Jesus died to be a good example for us so that we would good be good people but he didn't really die for our sins. Well what do you do with Isaiah fifty three or so as the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all. If you ever run into that theology use the verse. See what they say. Now getting back to the song of the lamb he was oppressed and he was afflicted. Yet he opened. His mouth he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb so he opened his mouth you see the Song of the lamb here. The song of Moses singing the song of triumph and of victory and of Deliverance the song of the Lamb is Jesus the Lamb of God when going through his crucifixion experience opening not his mouth. You know the experience of Jesus going through get some money and the pile is judgment hall and going in front of Herod and then going to Calvary and how he reacted to being mistreated is the exact opposite to how almost every single human being reacts under provocation we can show our Christian character more like or please help me they're being annoying today and the many of us when a certain line is crossed we say that's it I can't take it anymore and I'm going to give them a piece of my mind and then we think that when the mark of the beast crisis comes when Satan pours out every power and trick in the book that he can to get God's people to fall that because we can't somehow we're not getting through and doing OK when we're around annoying people and so we snap when the line is crossed that when the beast power throws everything that he has out of that will have the meekness and character of Jesus during the crisis so we're going to sing a song of victory while we're fighting like the spirit of the enemy against the enemy Jesus the Lamb of a go on who takes away the sum of the world as he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before her shearers as he opened. His mouth. That's human the impossible you have to have the power of your heart should be able to keep your mouth shut. And here's the thing. It's hard enough to keep your mouth closed when you are being provoked for something you've done wrong human nature will rise up and say I know I was wrong but don't talk to me like this here's why I did what I did it's quite another thing. To keep your mouth shut. When you've done what's right and you're still suffering. And that's the example of Jesus. You know verse ten moving forward in this chapter is as yet please the Lord to bruise him he have put him to grief when thou shalt make a soul an offering for sin he shall see a seed he shall prolong his days in the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in us and verse eleven he shall see of the travail of a soul and shall be satisfied by his knowledge show my righteous servant justify many for he shall bear their iniquities are you see it again he bears arson and by the knowledge of what Jesus did he opened not as mouth he bore our sins by that knowledge he shall justify many now first Peter chapter two refers to Isaiah fifty three when relating to the Christian experience of how Jesus is our example and how we are to sing the song of the Lamb and the song of the Lamb is that he opened the not his mouth when provoked even when he didn't do anything wrong. And we're going to pick it up in verse seventeen first Peter chapter two Peter makes this very clear here seventeen on our all men. Love the Brotherhood. Fear of God. Honor the king servants be subject to your master with all fear not only to the good and gentle but also to the for a word in other words some of you and he's actually a peace to those who are perhaps even in slavery at that time but you could also apply to those of us who work who have Boncelles who are above us and that's not necessarily slavery just means that you have someone in authority over you. And he says be subject to those that are not only nice to you but to those who are not nice to you. And then he saw those first one thousand for this is think worthy. If a man for conscience toward God and you are grief suffering wrongfully notice first twenty for what glory is a kind of so the saw already when I was the first for what glory is an if when you be buffeted for your faults you shall take it patiently but if when you do well one suffer for you take it patiently this is acceptable with God less than it's one thing if you patiently react when you make a mistake and you are rebuked for your mistake and you take it patiently many of us would say well I have good Christian experience there and not really. The Bible says that's just something an ordinary human not connected to God would be expected to do now of course in the world we live in now people still fight back when they mess up and say I know I messed up but I'm still going to defend why I did what I did anyway but what is acceptable to God is that when you're doing what is right and you suffer for and you take the suffering patiently that is the demonstration of being a true Christian. And that is humanly impossible unless unless you're connected to Jesus and you may say How could it be that I could live this way verse twenty one for even here into you where you call. Because Christ also suffered for us leaving us an example that you should follow his. So how to cross leave us an example how should we follow his twenty two who did no son that's point number one neither was guile found in his mouth and no by the way the one hundred forty four thousand and Revelation fourteen verse five is us and their mouth was found no guile. For they are without fall before the throne of God So Jesus is our example and this is preparation to be part of the hundred forty four thousand to sing that song verse twenty three thru when he was reviled reviled not again when he suffered he threatened not but committed himself to him the judges righteously Now if you have your margin that connects the New Testament verses to old to us in that verses verse twenty three connects to Isaiah fifty three where it says he was led as a lamb to the slaughter any open not his mouth Peter is referring to that when he says when he was reviled he reviled not again when he suffered he threatened not but committed himself to him the judge with righteously Jesus was a perfect being he had not sent he did not deserve to be treated the way he was being treated. And this is the example that he leaves for us that as a lamb he opened is not his mouth and so when you think about the experience that he goes through he's in the courtroom and as he is in between phases of the trial he is being he is being beaten he has been whipped he is being spat upon and there are people saying prophesies who spout upon you and Jesus could have been an instant walked away from being in the US in the path that man must trod in a fallen human nature and said you know what I'm done with this I'm going to show them who I really am Jesus was tempted to use his divinity to put those fall unhuman sinful beings in their place whom he created and in an instant he could have told them everything about their life and cause such fear in their hearts that they would have flood in terror. But Jesus didn't do that because he was our example and when we come to that point all the martyrs who came before him and came after him who relied on the grace of God didn't have such power to tap into Jesus had to rely on the same power that we do under the same temptations. In Jesus illustrates how to respond when being provoked and treated unfairly and that is the say nothing. Now this does not mean that we sit idly by while truth is being torn down on the church and we speak up for what's right in the spirit of Jesus. But this is Speaking of personal grievances of how someone is treating you rather than fighting back in your human nature. We learn to follow Jesus our example that we would follow this up so that when he was reviled he reviled not again when he suffered he threatened but committed himself to him the judge with righteously listen if you're going to sing the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb don't think that you're going to sing the song of victory where you've gained the victory over the beast and over his image and over the mark and over the number of his name if you're fighting back with the spirit of the devil who has given us power seat an authority to the beast that's not going to work. In order to get through the final crisis of verses three we truly need to follow Jesus and his example who did not fight back when provoked. And he had a right to them and we speak. You know. I think I mentioned this in person last night about sometimes some of the things I see on Facebook and it really kind of motivates me to be on Facebook was and maybe I should follow certain people but I see the same tired old arguments about the same old issues day after day week after week and I see people losing their Christian experience among fellow Seventh Day Adventists as they fight over certain issues in the church and you think you're going to go through the Final Crisis and stand with the lamb on Mount Zion. And you are fighting with each other and stirring the pot and being the accuser of the brother and saying things about this minister of up pastor of that church and then it creates a reaction and then other people join in and some people are creating reactions and tension only to stir the pot to bring attention to their ministry and as that the spirit of Jesus God hasn't called us to do that kind of a word do we really have the spirit of Jesus. You know it's actually a lot easier in some ways the sing the song of Moses. Than it is the sing the song of the lamb for obvious reasons we're going to triumph we're going to gain the victory over the beast Let's go forth by faith to conquer the beast but when the rubber meets the road and your human nature is provoked do you have the song of the Lamb to sing so that you can truly gained the victory over the beasts because when the hundred forty four thousand are sealed with the lambs fathers name in their foreheads that means that when you are placed in the same situation as the Lamb was placed when he went through his final events on the surface we will respond the way the Lamb did in his mouth was found no guile and the mouth of one hundred forty four thousand is found no guile they will be found without fall before the throne of God Hebrews nine fourteen says that Jesus as the Lamb was offered without spot but the margin on the Greek is without fault. We will be like Jesus with all that implies and I think to me the hardest thing. Of being like Jesus is to keep your mouth closed. When you are treated the way Jesus was treated when he went through his experience and get so many and the court room with pilot and Herod and then finally on the cross you can't do it in your own strength and if you think that you can just keep trying to pull yourselves up by the bootstraps that's not going to be enough when the Final Crisis comes don't try to comfort yourself with false platitudes that even though you're still losing your temper every day and getting shorter and cross in. Whatever it is impatient every day of the week three times a day five times a day however it is I don't know your hearts I'm not making a judgment on any one person here because I'm not around you every day I'm a visitor but I've been around enough human beings to know that that's the way human beings are. And in a room full this size there's at least one or two people who have that experience and it's probably more than that. The good news is that Jesus is our example and he has promised to give us the victory over these be settings. And that when the Final Crisis comes we can sing the song of the Lamb as the beast comes after us that's the only way you're going to gain the victory over the beast then when you gain the victory over the beast by singing the song of the Lamb you'll be able to sing the song of triumph from Deliverance which is the song of Moses so you'll sing both songs the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb and nobody else has ever sung that combination of a song before. And that is what God is promising to do for his people if you want to why we haven't come to the Final Crisis of a crisis of Earth's history. In practical terms you know we've talked about a lot of things but gob looks at us people and he's like boy they lose their temper with their wife every time they go across I don't think they're ready for the beast do. You really think that if you lose your temper with your spouse every day or three times a week or wherever it is and it's a habit she will pattern in your relationship that somehow that's going to be gone the Final Crisis So it's that's why this passage is in the Bible. Because the Lord in His mercy to us as my grace is sufficient for you you might have Irish blood like a McNulty. In that famous Irish temper that's not going to be a good excuse for me in the judgment although McNulty's in my line had an Irish temper got I couldn't help it that's not going to matter Jesus is my example Jesus is your example she is Grace is a is sufficient no matter what baggage you have in your life and by the grace of Jesus I want to sing the song of Moses and I also want to say in the song of the Lamb and the Maison thing is that when we sing the song of the lamb here on the earth and we sing the song of the Lamb in heaven we will follow the lamb whether soever to you. Because we have his experience but the experience you want. That's the experience of God promises that give. Us What You Want I invite you to kneel with me as we close the curtain on. Our Father in heaven thank you for Jesus and his example father we are weak we know what we're like when we're disconnected from Jesus we have a GUI characters. We have that tendencies and bad habits and we need to learn how to hang on to you every day Lord help us. We're like Peter sinking in the water on the Sea of Galilee. Proud of our efforts so often and so we take our eyes off Jesus on them quickly we're sinking before we even slipping and getting ornery getting short quick frustrated and losing our Christian experience and let's be honest with very simple. And we need your grace to give us your spirit right now so that we can be a representative of your character first of all on our own families so that we can represent your character when the final crisis comes and the Beast and his image and his mark and the number of name of his name fix him before your. Jesus to help us. Please help us please forgive us for where we have fallen short and help us to this and to surrender this area of our lives to you if we've been making excuses and saying oh everybody slips everybody gets impatient everybody gets short when they're tired help us to remember that the Lord has promised that we can learn to endure weariness hunger and away and that there is no excuse for slower than. Being tired or being hungry or being late for something is no reason to become impatient or full or whatever it may be thank you that you one of us and that you have plans for us to transform us fully and completely into the image of Jesus. And may we be by your grace going. For speaking to us the.
