Well we're looking at our 5th installment of this particular series I've been giving. And in our last talk. On the judgment we learned that God has in fact appointed today and that of course October 22 1844 is when it began and we learned in our presentation that the father is not the one to fear in the judgment but we learned who it is we ought to fear and that herself. Certainly God has made every pro vision for our success but it's up to us to cooperate with him so that he can finish what he has begun and so once more as I get ready to present I would like to have a word of prayer and we'll get into our presentation Father in heaven I again want to echo the prayers that are have ascended before you and Savior I am so thankful that you are teaching us these beautiful trues and there choose to give courage and hope but also meaning and Lord this this next one is is kind of a comprehensive in yet we tighten things down just a little boy more to get a deeper and broader comprehension of what the centuries about and what your work is and the goal for each of us. That will save you once more I do ask for the apple of your spirit I created to give me the words and I pray that you will send a mining job you on my side please Lord to Says me here in your spirit to fill me to strengthen the and to empower me above all Lord I really pray you give me the thoughts you wish me to share in the illustrations. You know every heart here Father in you know the struggles you the word of peace to each I ask in Christ's name. Kolker 221844 the judgment began the cleansing as we were singing early or about the record of sin in heaven but as we consider that we have to understand that there is another work that God is seeking to do and that is why he is cleansing the sanctuary in heaven of our record of sin there has to be a corresponding cleansing in the hearts and minds of the people of God there are waiting for the 2nd coming of Jesus we have to understand that Jesus is trying to get our attention fixed on what he is doing so that we can cooperate with him there is a crisis coming upon the world and that crisis is indicating to us that the work of Christ is about to finish and that work is to prepare us for that crisis in this presentation we're going to rest wrestle with and come to an understanding of why Jesus has not returned as I shared with you when I 1st came I like to Christ I wrote I couldn't wait for Jesus to return and so I study the Bible trying to figure out if there's a way I can know when he would and as I as I studied I realize that Jesus Jesus should have come before now we are on overtime he should have come over a 100 years ago so then my focus which as to what the holdup was I wanted to know what the holdup was so we can take care of business and get on with this so let's find out why Jesus has not returned yet I hope you have your hand outs with you we're going to look at question number one who what is the ultimate goal what is it what is God's ultimate goal for his people great controversy 44 Christ will close his faithful ones with his own right just now that he may present them to his father a glorious church not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing. Their names stand in roles in the books of life and concerning them it is written they shall walk with me and wind where they are with me and so the goal of the plan of salvation is total and complete victory over said to once again bring humanity into perfect harmony with God with perfect harmony with the law for God's law and we've learned that this victory is can only be achieved by an abiding relationship with Christ to walk with him every day by beholding him in yielding to his leading we become changed Take a look at the no right below number one as we know sanctification victory is the daily surrender of our will to the will of God It is a work that God does in the Repent sinner who chooses to yield daily to God's leading by way of an abiding relationship with humble trust we meditate upon Jesus we learn to walk in his footsteps by beholding hand we become changed into His likeness through the inner working of the Holy Spirit and you know this is really the problem with the remnant church at the end you remember the the prince the parable Jesus gave of the 10 virgins 5 were foolish 5 were why they were virgins that meant they were all they all had the truth that was all the last they cherish brothers and sisters they were all 70 I that is what I mean they all had a lamp that word is a lamp the I have the word and they all had a measure of oil because the oil is found in here which is the Holy Spirit but only one group half of them had the oil in their vessels these earthen vessels they allowed the truth to transform their lives are with me really quickly the Book of Daniel and we go to Jack Daniels Chapter 12 Daniel Chapter 12 I'm going to read verse 4. The angel talking to Daniel the very the end of the Book of Daniel the book of judgment Daniel means God is my judge and verse 4 of Daniel 12 it says but you Daniel shut up the word seal of the book to the time of the end many shall run true and fro and knowledge shall What increase back then they didn't have books they had scrolls when they did their studies they had to roll them out and they had to run this way and they had to run that way to make comparisons many would run through and woe and knowledge would this isn't about technology this is about a knowledge of the Word of God More specifically of God's plan to save humanity the book of the judgment the Book of Daniel is an unfolding of that plan let's take a look at verse number 9 and he said Go your way Daniel for the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end take a look at 10 but watch this now many shall be what purified made what white and what but the wicked shall do wickedly and none of the wicked shall understand but the. The wise will understand the work of the Holy Spirit in the life to transform the lives and bring it into harmony with God there will be a generation in the end that will understand this and will co-operate with that work take a look at number 2 Jesus will do this work in the lives of those who wait who want it now this is very interesting because what we're going to see is. Is the Old Testament picture of the investigative judgment. We're not going to Daniel this time we're going to Malakai Malakai 3 a judgment seeing vs one through 3 Behold I send my messenger and he will prepare the way before me and the Lord whom you see will suddenly come to what his temple even the messenger of the Covenant in whom you delight behold he is coming as the Lord of hosts but who can endure the day of His coming and who can stand when he appears for he is like a refiner's fire and like to launder so he shall sit as a refiner and a what a purifier of silver he will purify the sons of Levi and purge them as gold and silver that they may offer to the Lord an offering in write just notice what we're talking about here is a living sacrifice a daily death here we find a picture of the refiner's fire working to refine and it's interesting to talk about the sons of Levi and if you go you can reference this 1st Peter tonight to talk about God's people and under the new covenant as a nation of priests God is preparing his people the work of the investigative judgment is to purify and prepare people and you know the refiner when he's working with the metal when he's working with gold and he has an end up Pod and he has it melted in the cranks the heat in the impurities come to the surface and he gets a stick and he takes the impurities out and then heat cranks up the heat a little more and then when the impurities come to the surface more he cleans it off boom keeps cranking up the heat when does he know he's finished when he can see his reflection that's when you no. Doubt Let's take a look at number 3 the process involves a cooperative investigation and again I can't help but think of King David who wrote those pretty songs. Sang to beautiful music he was a good boy big into his family and I'm sure he thought he was a very good guy but there was something lurking in his heart in the area of law and it took a situation to bring that to the surface and suddenly he saw him self in a different light and I can't help but think that he is understanding at that point of the century took off because he felt his need his need a savior and so here he writes and Psalm 261 through 3 they indicate me o. Lord for I have walked in my integrity I have also trusted in the Lord I shall not slip examine me oh Lord improve me try my mind and my heart for your loving kindness is before my eyes and I have walked in your truth David is calling for an investigation because he's come to the realization that just because he doesn't see anything wrong with himself doesn't mean that that is necessarily true and so what does he come to learn take a look at him before the right to scoff at this investigation because they've come to understand that they are blind to their own sinful condition and need the help of Jesus not only for healing but also for diagnosis and David said in Psalms 112 who can't understand his errors cleanse me from what my secret faults you know when I was in my in my twenty's I was just beginning my walk with the Lord I had an experience with my sister that was really helpful to me you know you ever had that person in your life that can just eyeball you and tell it to you straight and you can take it I hope you have someone like that in your life my sister is one of those all my sister and I are so close and I was in my twenty's I was I was at home talking with her she we were she was in a room all standing in the doorway and I don't remember now what the issue was but she was pointing out something in my life that she felt I needed to change. So I thought about it I didn't see it therefore it didn't exist it was her problem ever been there so anyway I got in my car and I was driving off to see my grandmother there in Glendale and I was driving down York Boulevard you go rob all of our going towards. Adams hill there and her words kept echoing in my mind like she was sitting right next to me in the car it was so annoying. And so I'm driving along and I'm thinking oh why can't I get this out of my head so I turn on the radio to drowned it out and it just stayed there but I was I was beginning my walk with Christ and I was beginning to wonder if that wasn't God in my head pushing the rewind and play rewind play. So as I'm driving I said to the Lord Lord is that you surely that is not true or I don't see it there's just no way to driving that recording and playing and so finally I said Lord if it's true show me and dear friend the week was announced and the Lord revealed to me that it was and I learned something in my twenty's that we can be totally blind to our own that while everybody else see we can be completely blind and so they that understood that so he therefore he writes in Psalms 139-2324 search me oh God and know my heart try me know my anxieties and see if there is any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting Paul came to this understanding in 1st Corinthians or for sport by the said for I know nothing against myself. Yet I am not justified by this but He who judges me is the Lord therefore judge nothing before the time until the Lord comes who will bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of what the heart so that we can come to understand our own motives let me ask you a question if you have a computer which virus is the worst one the one that you know you have or the one you don't know you have because the one you know you have you going to do something about it but the one you don't know you have is still causing damage even though you do not aware that you have it does that make sense and that can take place in our relationships and in our home I could be ignorant but it's not protecting everybody else from the result does that make sense so God wants us to be aware God wants to deal with sin at every level and it has to be done before he returns why watch why this is why for this last generation this issue is extremely important you realize that when Jesus came the 1st time really basically nobody was ready but he could do it but the 2nd time not so we have to be ready for him to return let's begin to pack this great controversy for 25 those who are living upon the earth when the intercession of Christ shall cease in the sanctuary above are to stand in the sight of a holy God without a mediator. Their robes must be spotless their characters must be purified from sin by the blood of sprinkling through the grace of God in their own diligent effort they must be conquerors in the battle with evil while the investigative judgment is going forth in Heaven while the sins of the penitent believe it or believe years are being removed from the century there is to be a special work of what a purification lets to find out now of putting away of sin among God's people where on earth God is a consuming fire to sin when Jesus returns the set this next time he will His glory will not be veiled by humanity this time when he returns this is the cavalry coming to the rescue he is coming in all of His glory not only his own glory but that of the angels and so his presence is a consuming fire to sin so we have to remember what sin is by definition is a transgression of one of the law of God Sin is really Bally end and there are many well meaning people are there that are saying we're going to keep sending up to the 2nd Coming and the saved and a lot of people are buying it hook line and sinker and it's a form it's an Adventist form of once saved always saved there's no truth in it it's deception forgive me if there's anyone here would believe that it is pure deception it is not true remember the angels of heaven were kicked out for rebelling nobody is going in that way those guys don't want that back up there they've been through this before any more than we want to go through this again they don't either they don't need or want to show you a quote from great controversy 623. But we their. Put it here on the screen great controversy 623 all right let's set the stage here now when while our great high priest is making the Atonement for us we should seek to be calm What perfect in Christ not even by a thought could our Savior be brought to yield to the power of temptation Satan finds in human hearts some point where he can gain a foothold some simple desire is cherished by means of which isn't patients assert their power a foothold brothers and sister becomes a stronghold remember that but Christ declared of himself the prince of this world cometh and had nothing in me Satan could find nothing in the Son of God that will enable him to gain the victory he had kept his Father's Commandments and there was no sin in him that Satan could use to his advantage this is the condition in which those must be found who shall know who shall stand in the time of trouble not even by Xperia it is in this light that we are to separate since from us through faith in the atoning blood of Christ our precious Savior invites us to join ourselves to him to unite our weakness to a strength our ignorance to his wisdom our unworthiness to his merit God's providence is the school in which we are to learn to make this a loneliness of Jesus the Lord is ever setting before us not the way we would choose which seems easier and pleasanter to us but the true aims of life it rests with us to cooperate with the agencies which have been employed in the work of conforming our characters to the divine model none can neglect or defer this work but at the most fearful peril of their own was sold you know I don't know about you. But when I read that I was thrown into despair I said not even by a bot it's over for me you might as well take me out back and shoot me and get it over with there's no way I'm going to be able to get there does that sound familiar brothers and says. You know I hope you feel total despair right now I really do because we have to get to that point before we're willing to turn to Jesus for help with the honest truth we have to give up on ourselves and God never asked us to change ourselves he only asked us to cooperate with him so he can do it you see the difference the number Jesus made the comment that the Ethiopian cannot change the color of the skin he said the leopard cannot change his spots but what isn't possible with men is possible with God Our focus is in the wrong place it has to be on Jesus we have to come to the place to realize there is nothing good in me but there is and cry and he has promised that the work has begun and in my life he has promised to finish by the way just a side note right down this this page great controversy 620 g.c. 620 if you want to read about those who are going to be sitting right up to the 2nd coming and think they're going to be saved they're recorded for us on page 620 it is a tragic scene and watch what got them there very interesting g.c. 620 so now let's take a look at the note right below number 5 that says the putting away of sin as another way of saying no longer getting into it it means living above its power through the ministration of our great high priest here we also find the reason why Jesus has not returned yet pours people Number 6 why has Jesus not returned before now perhaps at 145 look at the 1st 3 words Christ is waiting you know it's so funny I thought we were. Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of himself in his church when the character of the Savior shall be there's that word again perfectly reproduced in his people then he will come to claim his own it is the privilege of every Chris Christie and not only to look for but to what hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ were all professed his name bearing fruit to his glory how quickly the whole world would be sown with the seed of the Gospel quickly the last great harvest would be ripened and Christ would come Christ is waiting he is waiting we were given a message in 1908 called righteousness by things we had just grasp it then this meeting would not the be taking place here today in Christ is continuing to wait for a generation that craft you see have to understand that right now the wicked those who are doing evil and are justified in it are not asking for forgiveness that I write their sin to those pleas are not going to heaven because they're not asking for it so so Jesus right now isn't the most holy place and when you and I gasp we sin there's no gas is a mistake when we sin there's a difference when we sin and then we have knowledge and ask God for forgiveness what does he do with His blood He washes away that sin right next to it says pardon in that right and then and then Howard asked for forgiveness and then Sally does and Jesus keeps working brothers and sisters what is going to have to happen before Jesus can finally leave the most holy place the need to keep him there is going to happen that's what's going to have to happen brothers and sisters the reason Jesus has not returned is because our. That you with me is making sense I want to I want there's something I have to communicate here that's very important God wants every one of us to be saying there isn't anyone in this room that's not saveable that's not that's not even possible unless we've given up hope and we turn our backs on him there's nothing a hope else he can do he will force us are you with me so I want you to stand. How many people would have had to have seen honor before God would send a son you believe that just one of his sisters in the whole world the entire world probation and close everybody had made a decision that you you were the last one left if you were cooperating with Christ he will work with you and hold up the 2nd coming until he has you safely. He will hold up the 2nd coming full until he has you safe then he'll say let's go get are you with me he's not going to lose one there isn't going to be a moment where Jesus going to look at his watch and say oh wow John if you had just started on your journey towards me just a week sooner I could have saved you are doing well but time's up your last that is a horrible picture that's not my words he he will work with us as long as we're willing to cooperate with him can you see him into that a minute let's take a look at the no pillow 6 this is the reason why Jesus has not returned yet his waiting is an act of what brothers and sisters of mercy for him to return the forest people are ready would be fatal to them so he waits he waits for his people to believe him and cooperate with him so he can finish the work that he has begun in them when this work is done he will come to claim them as a zone Jesus will finally leave the most holy place when there is no longer a need for his many a Tory works there. And so he waits Jesus will leave when he's out of business and so in the meanwhile he waits but what is this waiting doing to him Education Page 263 those who think of the result of hastening or hindering the Gospel think of in a relation to themselves and to the world if you think of its relation to God if you give thought to the suffering that sin has caused our creator all heaven suffered in Christ agony but that suffering did not begin or end with his manifestation in humanity the cross is a revelation to our dull senses of the pain that from its very inception sin has brought to the heart of God watch this every departure from the right every deed of cruelty every failure of humanity to reach is ideal brings grief to the heart of God There is no one in the universe that wants to bring it into the controversy more than our Savior What is your question do you believe that God knows everything you believe is all powerful God knows everything and he's all powerful that the Holy Spirit he can be everywhere is it possible that God heals everything when you're in your room by yourself and the tears flow and the when you feel your heart's going to burst because of the pain and that you are feeling at that moment your friend please know that that pain is reverberating in the heart of God Could it be that that's what Jesus meant when he said you've done it to the least of these you've done to me of course there's a flip side to this when we relieve the suffering of another we relieve it from the heart of God. The same thing but God is watching what's happening in this world and he is feeling all tonight when you and I lay our heads on our nice warm pillow overseen this planet is a loving God who is watching every rape every murder every child being molested every tortured human soul every persecuted are you with me and he is feeling it. This way he is bringing grief and agony and pain to r.c. we have an opportunity to bring him into. We do but how Jesus is painfully waiting but how can we cooperate with him to bring an end to this well there are several things we need to remember 1st of all we have to understand that sin has to go not only our outward behavior but in our thoughts but not just in our thoughts but even stuff we're not aware of as we ask God to he to to work with us we have to realize that he wants to deal with all that now there's there's several things here we have to remember in in this process so reading our wills to the Lord is a process you know I like watching I love working with little babies in factory time ago hospital I like stopping at the little baby place and just seeing the the window and looking inside and seeing the babies I love that. We've had 2 kids and and I love babies and but I never see the baby when he's learning to walk what do babies learning to walk often do they fall right Ok And you've seen this right baby's going to walk in they fall how many of you are seeing parents who working with their baby and theirs is stumbling and then falls and the parents said this they were seeing this a parent say this what are you doing. That you are embarrass me I'm full of all these people where you get up please. Look it's like this it's like this get up you are saying that. You know. What what the what happens is a parent leans over and says Nice try. Good effort here. Take let me take you by the hand that's next that's the picture of God babies learning to walk often fall but the goal is to walk without and babies eventually learn that it's what happened when I gave my life to Jesus there was a number of years in my life that all I was doing was falling and I shared one of them the foul language and the Lord said Son that's got to go and so I began to walk walk with Jesus and there were days you can scare me and I didn't say anything but the next day I was at the top and so I was walking but stumbling a falling now I am walking with Jesus in that area it's surrender to him I'm good I have nothing to brag it is the work he has done but once we got that up and running he said about this other area charge and now he's beginning to teach me to walk in that there's a number of areas now by the grace of God I am working with him I praise the Lord there are other areas in my character that he is still working with me on I'm still working learning to walk and sometimes I stumble in one of them is the area than patient that doesn't reflect Jesus at all you know it doesn't reflect Jesus and so the Lord is teaching me to walk in that area but the goal is to walk and the other thing is I have to remember that the way God deals with me is not necessarily the ways that they're with you because our experience is different does that make sense there are some people that you tell them God loves you and you just don't know what picture just came to their mind they didn't have a good experience with their father they had a bad one so you can have to reach them through Jesus are you with me God deals with all of us differently because we're starting from a different place. But the goal is to deal with the rebellion in our lives take a look at number 8 for what purpose does God want to deal with sin which is selfishness in its totality would look at his Texas again that he might present her and to himself a glorious church not having what or one or any such thing but that they should be holy and without blemish this is all sanctuary turn for the word sin he's saying zilch it's so funny when I was in North Carolina there was a. I know the mc cast lived out there we were we met out there I don't know if you want to go to Fort Fisher you know Fort Fisher is on the very little pinnacle there and you have a county and and there they have beautiful lawn and on the grass the guy taking care of the lawn had put a sign I wish I had taken a picture of it because it was so awesome. It said please do not it was a long sign but small words that said please do not walk. Run sashay crawl roll and it was all paragraph and end with on our grass now I'm sure it began with please don't walk on the grass and some kid ran across the he didn't see the sign Yeah but I read so please don't walk around and then the other one hopped across Did you see the sign Yeah but I hop and so he has this long list to try to cover everything and that's what God is doing here he's saying not having spot a wrinkle or any such thing and if that's not enough they should be holy and without blemish he is saying no rebellion. That is the goal of the plan of salvation to restore the last image of God His character of love and humanity I want to share some quote your awesome use instructor $89.00 he died but Christ was to bear to look at the history of music but Christ was to bear the penalty of the transgression of the law of God watch not to give men liberty to continue in sin but to take away their inclination to sin that they might not what desire to transgress those who receive Christ are obedient to His commands watch why for his mind is given to them him be use them with his with spirit of obedience and they return to their loyalty you know I used to think that God was going to reach into my heart in rips in out but that's not what he does he works with me until I see a pro what it is and I vomit. What I used to love. The way used to despise I now. 3 testimonies page 538 this is amazing quote here it may take what's next word time to attain perfect submission to God's will but we can never stop short of it and be fitted for heaven true religion will lead its possessor onto what perfection your thoughts your words and your actions as well as your appetites and passions must be brought into subjection to the will of God you must bear fruit telling us but in times you mention holiness to add innocent they leave skid marks its carries them to death you bring up perfection and I've had people get in my face real angry and after they've exhausted themselves I'll ask them once a question different what is perfection to you and I get the goofiest answers. But if you look at the quote you will find the answer it is perfect submission it is a day but today by day moment by moment submission to the revealed will of God simple definition but does that make sense it so render And don't forget the quote that we read earlier in desire they just page 668 when we know God our law I will be alive continual read through in appreciation of his character soon will become what he all that the work that God does and then my as we focus on him daily daily look at this next quote that doesn't make sense look at the next one desire they just Page 3 o 2 if the eye is kept fixed on Christ the work of the Spirit ceases not until the soul is come for and to his image can you say men today as we focus on Jesus as we claim his promises as we give him permission to work in our lives and we don't justify wrong but call sin sin in my life don't be so concerned about everybody else's look in the mirror and take care of the deal there and as we allow God to work with us and we look to Jesus the Holy Spirit works is us imperceptibly to our lives have changed you know as I have struggled with this there have been times of can then credible discouragement to me because I've read readjusting my focus to myself there's no hope. But what's really encourage me that the times my wife has come alongside and say yeah George the Lord changing this is no longer part of your life and that's the part like point is that while we're looking to Jesus we're not aware of what's happening here but the people around will be. He will. Be looking and this is the work that will take place in the lives of a generation that God will finally be able to let the crisis come and then we can go home and that will happen in one generation I submit to you that generation is walking here right now and the reason I know that is because of what is happening in the world brothers and sisters if you do some research what was taking place in 1980 it will blow your mind let me give you a quick history here 1st of all in 881 when when this message we have been talking about begins to dawn and e.j. Wagner from that moment do a little history timeline what's happening in America the Sunday laws began the moment the righteous by faith message hits Wagner. It begins and as he begins to flesh it out it begins to preach it the Sunday law issues begin to intensify let me share with you something else that was happening in the world at this time. The economy of the United States was tanking sound familiar very interesting there was a revival that was breaking out in men like you I don't Lucy and missionary work by Hudson Taylor and the like and they and it's very interesting to do a historical research after 888 they all went into the climb God was preparing the world for the end and if our church had accepted the message that it wasn't about all the good things we were doing that was going to save us it never was it was about his work in us so that he can get the glory Thursday no good enough except for what he doesn't and if we allowed that if we believed in that he who began a good work in you really can complete it looked to me in live just like Moses turned to the children of Israel look to the serpent there on the pole if you will look you will be healed. Look to that crossed I have Jesus has had the power to create enough of what was lost the Sabbath was supposed to be a reminder every week that God's creative power can be unleashed in our lives he can still bring light out of dark he still can but instead they were looking to their own works they got so busy at the were in the work of God that they forgot the God of the work they made a savior of activity and we're still here very interesting by the way that you know the attempts Ellen White and Jones and Wagner to get the message spread and and in the leadership in their ignorance is not critical but in their ignorance their attempts the block and they shift often light to Australia to get out of the way and Wagner off to Europe to bring an end to the revival by $896.00 the revival comes to an end and guess what happens. The economy gets better in the sun they love the quiet of the sea God was preparing the crisis to get us ready to go. You know what brings on the crisis when God's people finally get the crisis is coming God's people are getting if you pay attention to Sunday laws around the world on real brothers and sisters we're just the last ones that are not on board but when we finally get on board we're going to put teeth on it it's going to glow like a flash fire around the world that there were out here the end is upon us the people of God are beginning to understand. That's what's happening now Ok. Number 9 This process involves our cooperative cooperation by examining ourselves a lot of God's Word we look at this 2nd Corinthians 135 examine yourself as to whether you are in the faith test yourself do you not know yourself that Jesus Christ is in you unless indeed you're disqualified and we talked about the South this is the problem we talk of is already this the problem with Laodicea legacy is blind because she's not examining yourself her own like compared to Jesus the Odyssey is lost sight of Jesus completely so she thinks everything's great she's lost it's only when we look to Jesus that will see our need and will run to him 1st Corinthians 1131 and 32 for if we would judge ourselves we would not be judged but when we are Judge we are chastened by the Lord that we may not be condemned with the world you have been spanked by God I have you know what the Lord does we get in the word he will reveal to us something that we're doing that's not right and if we kind of ignore that then he will bring a spouse or a child if we ignore that then he's going to bring our boss or a friend or the pastor if that doesn't work is Mr Policeman are you Whitney the Lord keeps working with us and trying to get us to turn and live Number 10 Every Secret Thing is brought out in the judgment including our thoughts and motives for God will bring every work into judgment including every secret thing all the ways of men and all the ways of men are pure in his own eyes they bent upon but the Lord weighs the spirit our motives behind that Hebrews 412 for the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any 2 edged sword piercing even to the vision of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow and is a discerner of thought intense of the heart that's why we have to be in the word. Number 11. Even hereditary sins are considered in the judgment where you judge and set of men when you judge them then make known to them the abominations of what. Of their fathers make known to them the abomination of their fathers you know many times because we had a bad childhood we feel justified in doing wrong and the Lord is saying no God calls us to end the cycles of pain in our homes that we grow up in so that we don't bring it into our new families and then it's kind of like going to the mall and you see a sign that says you are here right it doesn't mean you're going to be there forever we understand that the goal the goal is to look at that sign and get a point of reference to where we're supposed to be and then start heading in that direction and so when there are pains and stuff from our family Ok that may explain why I am the way I am today the Jesus promised change that if Lennon Let's continue in number 12 God will graciously show us everything that keeps us from fully reflecting his character for Libyans 315 Therefore let us as many as are mature have this mind that if anything you think otherwise God will what will reveal even this to you so God brings us into circumstances to show us what's really in there you may have you ever been there you said God where are you why is it seems like the whole world is caving in on me everything is going bad it's because he's working to show you something that's lurking in your heart he's bringing it to the surface hang on that's why Peter says think it not strange the fiery trial has come upon was those some strange things come on this is the Lord's that working on is going to reveal are you with me and sometimes I don't understand why but sometimes to those fiery trials when I come through on the other side I'm a different person in the truth and I can make the connection between the change in my life in the trial I went through but I'm different. Number 13 this is not to condemn us but say that we may repent and live if you kill 183332 Therefore I will judge you or house of Israel every one according to his ways says the Lord God repent and turn from your transgression so that iniquity will not be your ruin cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed and get yourself a new heart and a new spirit for why should you die a house of Israel for I have no pleasure in the death of the one who dies says the Lord God therefore turn and live brothers and sisters you know we need to go for a new heart this for Jesus even the desire for it comes from Jesus let's keep going number 14 God's right just judgments teach and train us so that we may share in His holiness and reports of righteousness and peace he was 1210 and 11 for they are earthly dads indeed for a few days chasing us as seems best to him but he for our prophet that we may be partakers of His Holiness now no chastening seems joyful for the present but painful nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of what to those who have been what trained by it Jacob felt justified in deceiving his father and defrauding his brother after all didn't he want the birthright the blessing from God didn't the end justify the means he felt justified God said son you cannot have that in your character so guess what he did you know allowed Jacob to get a taste of his own that he experienced the Friday he experienced deception in a different perspective and suddenly he said you know what under no conditions is that acceptable you don't see that anymore in his life hard experience but he learned it by the grace of God. In the end result of this work will be the cleansing of the conscience from all simple principles and through the mighty agency of the Holy Spirit reading upon the mind the principles of God's law as promised under the provision of the New Covenant 2nd Peter's amazing also mazing 2nd Peter 1234 grace and peace be multiplied unto you how through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord according as his divine power had given us how many think all things are pertaining to life and godliness out through a knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious What promises that by these you might be partakers of what the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through less so when you and I are born we're born with a fallen nature and that's a propensity to evil but when we asked Jesus into our light a new element comes into the hall in human being it's the divine nature through the Holy Spirit and now the power to say no to the fallen nature is present and how do we strengthen that by feeding it and how do we weaken the fallen nature by starting will be careful to live which. Will Be careful little use what you. Do not feed the fallen nature starve it weaken it but strengthen the divine this make sense. Now look at this next quote this next quote is mind blowing before you do them and she sitting with you see this book you know when God when God created the universe what did you do to create it how do you do that God's word has creative power you know that if you get it Adam and you split it what do you get energy to get right that's one Adam how many atoms are in me in this room under spline it in the entire universe what does that tell us about the power of guile. His word has incredible power this book is call one God and the creative power that created this universe is found here and as we spent time in it that power is diffused in the light to recreate us into its Look at this next quote in the spirit of prophecy it is mind blowing education $126.00 the creative energy that call the world into existence is in the Word of God this were it in parts what power it begets what life everything this is amazing every command is a promise accepted by the will recede into the soul watch this is mind blowing it brings with it the life of the infinite One it transforms what then nature and recreates the soul into the image of God it never was about what you can do to change it was about what God has promised it to do in your life if you cooperate with him does this make sense. Let's take a look at some promises here Hebrews 914 how much more shall the blood of Christ who through the eternal spirit offered himself without spot to God cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God Philippians 164 of this I am confident he that began a good work within you will go on to perfect it in preparation of the day of Jesus Christ Jude 24 glorious words now unto him. That is able to keep you from falling. And to present you what was before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy to the only wise God our Savior be glory and majesty dominion and power both now and forever amen there were 16 What does the life look like when God's laws rain upon the heart collations 52223 but the fruit of the spirit the fruit of the Spirit is love joy peace long such of suffering kindness goodness faith those jealous of control looks like Jesus number 17 What will the final result of the Christ judgment were in in his in time change and what will be the final result of Christ judgment work as in time saved relation 1412 here is the patience of the saints here are they that keep the commandments of God and have the faith of who Jesus passed about thanks that's us the 7th Day Adventist Church your friends it was we wouldn't be here it's what we're supposed to you see the rebellion began and had it when a bright shining angel stood up and said that God's laws cannot be sinning was inevitable Does this sound familiar there are Christians out there that are echoing the voice of the serpent your friends when we get to this condition where out of here and it's a work that he's promised to do in our lives you see what's going to happen is going to be a generation that arises that trust God it will fully yield their lives to Him And Jesus is going to shine through their life and when that generation is on the earth there's going to be an incredible crisis just like with Job's felt and they're going to get put under pressure to demonstrate to the whole universe that God can be obeyed he can be no matter what the circumstance and that generation is going to vindicate God before the universe and the Army unit looking universe is going to be watching and this argument from Satan is going to be refuted and God is going to stand up and say Here are the exhibiting the controversies over this go go this is make sense they vindicate God. But there is a final warning we have to remember what warning does our great high priest have for us today watch therefore please coming suddenly he find you sleeping paralysed with the condition of those who are growing weary of their watch turn to the attractions of the world while the man of business is absorbed in the pursuit of gain while the pleasure lover is seeking indulgence while the daughter of fashion is arranging or adornments it may be at that hour that the judge of all the earth will pronounce the sentence they are weighed in the balance and are found wanting brothers and sisters were almost all don't lose focus now we're almost out of here keep your focus upon Jesus be honest with them you know we can't hide anything from him. The honest way them let him into that dark room in your heart that one that holds that terrible memory or whatever and let him go in and cleanse it so that he can repair person coming let's close with a word of prayer Father in Heaven you are so gracious and kind to us Oh father it we have just had such wrong thinking about you and how this all thing works and so often we tried to do your work instead of letting you do your work in our lives Lord help us to let you work in us to claim your promises and to believe you help us Lord I pray to find our strength in your word to cry out to you and to remember to give you permission into every area of our lives help us to remember that we are never justified in doing something that does not reflect your character you were provoked but you always responded with love and dignity and respect and thus the example that you left us you can't change Lord what we justify but you a promise in John 19 that if we confess our sin you are faithful and just to prevent doesn't end there but to cleanse us from all.
