oh father in heaven thank you please consider the words this morning 's open my mouth speaks through me I am in Jesus and how many of you have read through some of those chapters in the Bible that begin with a big drop in the regard you and how many of you has to go those chapters because there is an assumption that must be something more interesting than the Bible but let me just make a statement here in La Jolla famous sermon short is to try to help it get to me there's nothing in the Bible and God is within their because she needed space to fill in everything in the Bible is there because it has a purpose I will share with you this morning for example beginning Matthew Mathis while those chapters that has to do with the big shots and it begins with the generation of Jesus Christ son of David Abraham and then as soon as Jews begot far as and Sarah Damer first the guys from the national did not grab some and got bars of rehab in Boston got over the roofs over the guy Jesse and just begun David the king David begot that the Solomon of her that had been the wife he writes it continues on through brands in the genealogy or without the Jesus Christ the amazing thing is that this chapter introduces us into for women in this genealogy was reading women are not part of the genealogy to resume most about and move example you'll find that the massive question why were these four women introduced into this list of great men a man Jacob etc. and more than that these four women are not Jewish when it all jumped on the salacious to the question as to why wouldn't go insert the names of four Jewish appointment for Gentile pagan women into the genealogy of Jesus Christ we began by looking at some of these women which will help us to understand why this blog is written that chapter first of all look at the growing clamor if you have your Bibles in China with me and were introduced into the chamber who absolutely daughter in law of Joseph Judah Evansville one of the sons of Jacob Mister Jabir shows that Judah parted from instructions and God had given to his children not to go in to intermarry with unbelievers Judah made so slightly and decided to take her for wife and she conceived and if you have three sons from Joomla! for several sperm second one was on another invoice you Scripture says send them Judah following a wife for the sun and the wife it was found was maintain demo was a candlelight and the Scripture reveals and that once units of this young woman to be wife to his son something terribly happy and bowling I and then ended the Jewish customer thing that was that the second most integral also when he came to the third boy Judah had no intentions of giving the third boy that will notice was just measured you that the chamber is not an long remain a will of the father 's house Joe Sheila my son to grow Propecia venture Niles so what if you begin to think about this slight Jewish Temple by a jury my first volume dials the second volume dies on the new microphone is something about her that I will so essential home know the wonderful thing about this young woman is that even though she was pagan origin she apparently in the heart has accepted the Jewish faith of saying that because when she was sent home to begin to feel that her father-in-law was up to no good and that he was going to defraud her and therefore she would be childless to the Jewish mind especially when it is imperative that the Mitchell and sometimes when you read the Old Testament it almost appears that women in the Old Testament may be crazy natural on a new look at Jacobs to watch as the Battle of the Bulge Youngstown site they were classified as kids right but what was this whole idea of having kids will suggest you have budget kids know all Jewish women who were women of faith and understanding of the promise of God had given to any through the IC they all expected that sooner or later one of them would be the honored lady who could bring to the world 's Savior now it's true that sometimes women get carried away with that comes the reality is the same though we had canonized somehow while outside she would canonize the inside she was a woman who is even though she was married into a dysfunctional family she wanted to be part of that she wanted to be part of the home to such an extent that she was willing to do anything to accomplish the Scripture says that she dresses somewhat like a prostitute and weight of along the way until June ten by Adam the rest of the story is that she got pregnant and living relatives of October discovered she was pregnant to send word to Judah said you need to come over him but this will be done at your own thing so scheduled shutdown that the young lady gave evidence to those who were there who was the one in the right who was Junior himself and Julie makes a statement that is what he says she has been worldwide more righteous than what is not because I gave are not the Sheila in the minimum ten more than becomes one of the great great great great grandmothers while sitting canonized pagan becomes the a woman was Christ the radio and mentally I change my sermon on the humility of Thailand's most egregious but I felt impressed to change the topic and I believe that the Lord to speak to you never send it right happens a second one that list Rahab is found in the book of Joshua and she is introduced as a prostitute when you look at the background right you discover that she is of course of the kind of night people and canonize actually this unavoidable half now with him the blood boiling I can understand how it is some money can grow up in the church like him and see all the glorious miracles that he saw Sue God in action be one of those is survived instruction of the year see a rainbow for the first time and then turned his back on all of the understood anew because his phone have that we have been and then run is the one the biggest of those our right holidays but somebody can grow up in the fighting and turned to be the enemy of the faith I don't understand that but it happens that true I wonder if some of us may have children with the and good rice in the right way to become a grade grade grade grievance to us I was in that well Rahab comes from the Canaanites and the canonize and the Amorites and the Jebusites of all sites where people came from half and the amazing thing about this is that the wicked people warlike people immoral people and yet God said that their cup of iniquity was not yet bought blog gave them four hundred four hundred and three pages of grateful marriage I'm grateful for that patients with design sometimes people say well you know they say Jesus is coming my grandmother 's bed and my mother that if Jesus is not yet come what is two hundred years Nebraska four hundred years of waiting and yet God in his mercy was willing to endure this group of people because the Bible says that God is not willing that any should perish how many but that all should come to what repentance and so time okay with commands given the recovery is cool in his service you need to destroy high times MRIs canonize parasites I was there besides time to the UMass how far these people go and forgot the five hundred and eleven only dyslexia when you have your Bibles and religious cell don't have your Bibles to go home and read it understand that these people practice English theology these people had to generate such a low that become animallike and the command was the negatively strong and yet in the mists of all of that we find this girl who says to the spy 's the Lord your God is one God in heaven and where in the north of the event it is a girl that there is a prostitute the Bible says Rahab the harlot my understanding is that in those days as it is in Iraq or India the day of some of these countries prostitutes are about twelve thirteen -year-old girls and often times of families forced to grow a sense of prostitution to provide money home Rahab was obviously a victim of circumstances a user practitioner in the wrong occupation yet in the heart is seem to belong that's why the Bible says men look at fun one the outward appearance regardless would saw a young woman prostitute he saw that in the heart it was a longing for something better and when she heard about the Israelites in all that God had done I yearn to be part of those people who serve the God of heaven will in the drawings the cingulate when I was a little boy Puerto Rico the announcement came that they were going to build a church near our village children excited I have participated in straightening nails out I must than four years old but I was happy to take a rocket by thumbnails straighten them out church got built and I must've been five years old when I attended the first mouse I remember seeing the altar boys with the white garments on walking behind the priest there has classroom and I could remember at five thinking to myself I wish I could be as a result of was a long human wish I could be as holy as Windows one these can somehow gone views into us desires because we're told that all good things come from where a no I have no understanding of all of the religious stuff that goes on all I had was a long and I was thirty two had no shoes my mother to go around begging for food my father manager there I am in this sanctuary looked on those kids lunch with this more holistic and many people like that all around us who are long and deep inside something that they become certain set of victims of circumstances Rahab when she saw those pious you all Lord God is God of heaven above or beneath the Scripture reveals them that when the Jews and circled Jericho Jericho was destroyed much of a notice what the results of that laundry was Ray have Bible says was brought out her father and mother her brother and in the all were all in attendance the prostitute at without one coaching seminar friendly became evangelists your worship Rahab the prostitute without attending one coaching seminar for Louis Torres became an evangelist when he said prostitute becomes the venture 's so she is effective in which her girlfriend to go to know sometimes I think I wonder how many sardines were assigned minimum say I wonder how many people clung onto local and right-hand the amazing thing is this a great is not only written in the book of Matthew look in the New Testament life save Rahab 's Allen says whether the same my favorite lot of harlot and will miss you something how many of you is when you put your savings together going to come to work at the Guam SDA clinic in which CV together within your resume my great-grandmother was a prostitute how many of you what is it that we normally put on our shoes present to function if you don't have the money minister José I have this cooperators and disqualification disqualification would promote ourselves that's the way things are run though I given us in our master is not ashamed to call the prostitute for great is great great great great in the book of James likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works not to send that the deciliter the word prostitute hard was that because it wants to encourage you and me to understand this it really doesn't matter when you come in when it doesn't matter what must a been it matters his will you go to your website it just really doesn't matter what our background matters is what the Lord to do with you you place yourself in the Milton Ruth I do know that the

allowed to happen but will well you know the story zero Bruce actually comes from one Moabites of the sentence minister says Joshua both daughters were not with child and bargain for a and one of them is called what more was the father of the Boulevard so what's roots vintage as you come from what we call yesterday 's Zen honorable additional which one is whether those are things that strange things that happen and yet even though this girl comes out of that terrible background yet again inside her heart is a longing and when she finally see somebody who were questions that long Janice Bickle she recognizes it immediately and she decides nothing nothing is going to separator from holding onto that as for as a lot of attempted then trying to reach the world with different methods the physicians who cannot improve them the methods of Christ when I say you cannot improve on the methods of Christ Wednesday the third time you cannot prove on the methods using methods alone will bring success I think people tell me that this new thing is going to work this thing is coming very important people into the church I haven't seen it happen know what I'm because you cannot improve on the method Christ say one more time you cannot improve fundamentally different of it being set with a Jewish of postmodern society can I just tell you honestly that doesn't exist you know what I'm saying

resonated with that she saw Naomi and when I only save you to go back home who said I'm a little and then that wonderful passage of Scripture that says where it will reliable your people shall be my people my God my omission because of time will close with a view here is my view obviously Ruth write pain women who were victims of environment circumstances within their long long recognized and operated created for them the opportunity to connect with that which they saw the turn their hearts to God and God invented those women in spite of their dysfunctional circumstances and on and put them up in a highly honored position the last woman I mentioned Monday is as always you ever been the one for your life so assess me know why because of all the girls she had room like even though she
