him morning and now as I was working for the city with WordPress to my father we need you so much for this beautiful day the Sabbath stating given us in the world as we now look into some beautiful shows that you have in store for us in your word may your Holy Spirit of truth please fill this place please be with me and speak the words that you would have me speak Lord and may your presence pervades this room now we thank you Lord for hearing our prayers policing the printer name and I find very excited to be with you this morning and I have to say him for those of you who don't know me my name is John Shannon and I am a third-year medical student now and all I can tell you is that the medical school enables you to appreciate the status like nothing else and if there's anything I look forward to doing this my seven hours some very glad to be here how many of you like sermons censorship is a I think how many of you like Bible studies and nine how many of you like Bible studies more than you like sermons Mister Chopin 's right I'm of the belief that the best sermons are Bible studies right so why not just let the session a very in-depth study of the Bible and some of the beautiful truth that contains advanced language hypothesis morning there may be many people in this room who would of never seeing some the concepts I'm about to show you tonight I will stay and some of you may have seen pieces of it but I just say this is a word of warning because this is a very dense Bible study and I was given permission to take a little bit more time because we are starting early and I need you to focus and be with me because it do to help for even a minute you may miss a very importantly and every verse is indispensable I've been poring over this life that important over the text I tried to cut out what I can cut out the ones that left behind are the ones that are crucial so if you have your Bibles with you please open the now and in accessible the text on the screen seems if you find more helpful to belong on the screen is due solely to find more helpful to look it up on your own please do so whatever is best for you please try to focus and be with me because I don't want to miss out on anything and find yourself confused but limit on the road and because it's a bit of a more lengthy study will be able to go back and flesh out things and reiterated them over and over again but hopefully with the Holy Spirit 's help the message will come through clear and immensely start now does anyone know where this is the type of something Ground Zero Ground Zero and what is it what what what is this thing is the 9/11 memorial anyone who's been to Ground Zero recently after 9/11 they basically this is one of two sites that outlines the footprints were the twin towers he sustained and the target into Memorial and what they've done is VC along the edge of this basin you have the names of everyone who was killed in a tragic event to memorialize him forever and it's really beautiful if you go there people go there and they're just moved to tears by the emotions that pervaded the place and you know we've all been moved by the story of 9/11 white centaur country and my question to you is there have been many many stories written about 9/11 many news articles written many interviews taken eyewitness accounts of recorded majors have been shed many ceremonies and performed one doing on this and why isn't that enough wirelessly also direct memorials for an event such as this is almost as if our hearts and human beings if not enough justice to weep over an event to speak about an event and move on it's not enough to erect monuments we have to have symbols in our lives in order to fully express what words and thoughts alone cannot end this is a very uniquely human trait and I believe it was God-given as God implanted in our hearts because the Lord if you look in the Bible she communicates his most profound truths to us in the form of symbols when Jesus spoke he always spoke using parables he didn't really teach didactic form but he spoke in parables and symbols if you look at the book of Revelation if you look at the book of Daniel the prophecies there is encoded in what symbolic form by day why couldn't the Lord is straightforward and cannot and spell it out phonologically what's going to happen in plain English what worked whatever language you chose to use why did he have to use symbols may be because you could communicate a wealth of ideas and symbols to words and symbols speak to us in our hearts more eloquently than words ever could and just look at the symbols in the something in your life and I think you understand what I do whenever I see him I used to work near the Walter Reed Army Hospital back in Maryland and I remember seeing some veterans would come in and out of the hospital but whenever they saw the flag it would a lot of them would cause and I would see their I wonder assessing the symbol of the flag on the wall I didn't know exactly what you're thinking but oh well a Fox were flowing through an something was communicated in words alone could and when you hear music when he should we see symbols something so powerful about it but it touches at your core and wisdom words alone cannot and that's exactly how the Lord encrypts as well some of his most precious truth in the Bible because he knows of a symbol must properly understood would land the plane home into our hearts my words can't invest language of trying to free today try to unfold to some of the most beautiful symbols exist in the work year ago in Exodus fifteen verse seventeen it says you will bring them and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance the place overlords which you have made for your dwelling the sanctuary overboard with your hands have established here the mountain the mountain of your inheritance while counting to think this thing spoken of here name the mountain is Anthony Zion Mount Sinai okay Mount Sinai and he says Lord when you are dwelling the century DC home the mount of God Sinai is compared to the sanctuary since correlation here not that she was eight five and it starts up little disjointed who serves the copy and shadow of the heavenly things just as Moses was warned by God when he was about to erect the tabernacle for CDG says that you make all things according to the pattern which were shown you on the mountain friends I believe that Moses did not only receive the pattern that he was to build after on the mountain of God was not actually use the mountain and the stories that occurred I will sign a pattern itself for the sanctuary the most this was the right know-how leave you knew that there was a heavenly sanctuary in addition to earthly century Kaiser Chopin 's okay and earthly sanctuary is a copy of which one heavenly century right thought and just so you know what I think what people need a place of worship on this guy called the sanctuary and let me just come up with a list of very detailed instruction on how to build and notice arbitrarily to think the Lord that the would you think what he was getting most instructions on how to construct a century but he was encoding messages in their right let's look carefully at some of these messages so the earthly sanctuary was built according to the pattern shown on the mountain and the mountain of God is likely to God 's sanctuary city can make the case that the pattern itself was also on the mountain now so we can send outside it was a prototype century everyone seen this before this is the sanctuary translate out and what happens is this is East and this is west and but we always displacing through this way and so this is how we've grown accustomed to seeing it when you would enter here to the east and what I would submit to you is that this sanctuary layout you would both the bronze alter what would happen there would offer a sacrifice right in the appraisal go from there to labor to wash ceremonially washing to come clean and enter into the holy place and then once a year enter into the most holy place I submit to you that this century layout actually symbolizes the Exodus story it symbolizes the story of the Israelites exodus from Egypt how can show you with the Exodus twelve verses one through three notable words that Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt this month shall be the beginning of months for you this is the first month of the year to you spent so all the congregation of Israel saying on the tenth of this month they are each want to take a lamb for themselves according to her father 's households demand for each household number six shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the month then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is secure with twilight versus elegant verses eleven through twelve now you shall eat it in this manner with your loins girded your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand and you shall eat it in haste it is the lower house over for I will go through the land of Egypt on that night and will strike down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt both man and beast and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments I am the Lord the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live and when I see the blood I will pass over you and no plate will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt silk that has overland is how the Exodus story began and whenever the Israelites came to the surgery services bronze altar and brought their land their offering for their sins they were reminded that this animal this land is taking my place at this altar and its relationship for me that I may not die but God 's judgments may pass over me and that is how the Israelites story starts with the Passover lamb in the nasty what about the waiver when the priests went from here into the blood and before they entered into the sanctuary to make sure that they were ceremonially clean to stop by the labor to wash themselves what would this signify and exit story and the Red Sea Exodus fourteen versus twenty one through twenty two and Moses stretched out his hand over the sea and the Lord swept the feedback by strong east wind all night and turned to see and to dryland waters were divided the sons of Israel went through the midst of the sea on dry land and waters like a wall to them on the right hand and on their left of the first questions ten one three two four I don't want you to be unaware brethren their fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea Paul likens a crossing the Red Sea to the baptism my question to you is in one way is like a baptism you offenders wet baptism at a cost to drive it isn't just the fact that a pastor some water what is and what is baptism signify of rebirth dying of something that's all rebirth is something you dedication to Christ is an act is a public proclamation of your faith in Christ Frank Whitney asking if you were the first Israelite to have to step foot onto the ground after this he parted with that's an act of faith you see something it's never happened before easy to see open up before you Moses walk in your first in line is you are I would take a little thing to take that step what about halfway through and you looking to left and the right and using unspeakable things swirling around you and you know that as far as to go back as it is to go for now the perfect time to meet your doom anything wrong happens when you take fee to continue walking what is holding back those waters that so it wasn't the faith that Israelites displayed publicly to the world when a pastor that CNN's annuity claim my God will save me my life is in his hands and in him I will follow about how they were baptized through the seat the Israelites were not the same people when they see other side of it this interface are not being so that's what Paul likens this with baptism and that's how this event is represented by the labor the Israelites needed this experience before they arrived at the mount of God in the same way that the priest need to be ceremonially clean and right with God if we arrive at the tabernacle to see that now vendor we set that Mount Sinai is a prototype sanctuaries and now we reach Mount Sinai the articles in the sanctuary let's see if these articles are also represented in the Exodus story not text Exodus three percent into now Moses was pastoring the flock of Jethro 's father-in-law the priest of Midian and he led the flock to the west side of the wilderness thinking to form the mountain of God the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire in the midst of the Bush and he looked and behold the bush was burning with fire in the bush was not consumed can you recall any article in the sanctuary and looks like a bush maybe a tree that was set ablaze and that I believe is a good counterpart to abusing the sanctuary now what about this what is this article right here table showbread okay it is food and drink that is set before the presence of God St. Vincent was a lot of things but can you remember any time of the Exodus story careers food and drink set before us about the Humana and I hear water on your being fed water in Iraq and that's a very very good guest the only problem is the data from Mount Sinai super simple to complete a pastor from outside turn with me to Exodus twenty four verses nine to eleven the most when name death and haiku and seventy of the elders of Israel and he saw the God of Israel and under his feet there Sapphire as clear as the sky itself yet he did not stretch out his hand against the nobles of the sons of Israel and Esau God is eight and he drank he had a Neil before the presence of God on his mountain and so I would say that this represents the table showbread experience and what about the altar of incense was an altar erected on Mount Sinai it's like Exodus twenty four verse four Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord that he rose early in the morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain with twelve pillars for the twelve tribes of Israel to see that there was an altar and Association to Mount Sinai but the real important question is this what about this art of the covenants was that represented on Mount Sinai anywhere what would it mean for the ark of the covenant to be represented on Mount Sinai but I heard something the ten Commandments interesting what let's see let's flesh that out and see how that is so gay the first let's discuss the ark of the covenant the parts that it was the parts that constitute the arts and art of the company Exodus twenty five or twenty one you shall put the mercy seat on top of the art and in the art you shall put the testimony which I will give you what is this testimony we all know the ten Commandments right so remember the orientation of the art okay you have the mercy seat on top and then you have the ten commands below a student and what is what is the mercy seat what is above the mercy seat in the most holy place a victor Shekinah glory the presence of God Brian Mercy seat because invoking image of Fessler God is enthroned above the mercy about the Ark of the covenant and it within its is the ten Commandments to go now let's turn to Exodus twenty four again verses nine to eleven resolve this and Moses went out with Erin made out to buy two and seventy of the elders of Israel and he saw the thought of it he saw the God of Israel and under his feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire as clear as the sky itself yet he did not stretch out his hand against the nobles of the sons of Israel and besought God and he ate and drank covers twelve now the Lord said to Moses come up to me on the mountain and remain there and I will give you the stone tablets of the law and the commandments which I have written for their instruction now we've all read this before him sure but when you come to this tax year actually not a good translation the literal Hebrew looks like this the heat was read from right to left later translated literally word for word it says this tables up the stone when translators came to that patient but that doesn't make too much sense it must keep Moses must be talking about the stone tables but the nastier question isn't the same meaning to say I will give you rest tables of the stone well give you the stone tables to be carried exact same meaning with the nastiness I will give me the stone tables and Stuart Stone becomes an adjective right if not need I can give it away tables I can give you the clay tables of the updated tables in this have to be so going to be the stone tables but if you read the Hebrew literally tables on the stone to see how it's finally important that his twentieth gusto these tables are made of also if I told you what I'm going to be the tables made of dust stone written expression the one-stop Whitestone and in order to find a whetstone you look in the context what is the only stone mentioned in the context of this passage okay what is this stone look back at verses nine to eleven and Moses went up with Erin made out an invite with seventy of the elders of Israel and he saw the God of Israel and under his feet there appeared to be a caveman of sapphire as clear as the sky itself in this context this patent of sapphire whatever it is this is the only stone mentioned in this context so when God says I will give the tables of the stone he was a decedent 's pavement of sapphire under my feet unfortunately tables made of this stone and you can ask me how do you know that's true maybe your way of translating it is an option but perhaps the other way the weight has translated most Bibles perhaps an equally valid option one going to say that I think there's greater weight in the Scriptures for this translation and this is why case of the stones of Venice affect the numbers fifteen versus thirty seven thirty eight the Lord also spoke to Moses saying speak to the sons of Israel and tell them that they shall make themselves to hassle 's on the corners of their garments throughout their generations and they shall put on this hassle at each corner a quart of blue was purpose of this within first thirty nineteen forty it shall be a hassle for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the Lord Celeste to do then and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes after which you play the harlot so that you may remember to do all my commandments and be holy to God question why would the tasks of blue reminder it is twice as long as maybe because Cecil B DeMille had it wrong or maybe when Moses came walking down the mountain this cleaning tablets of sapphire burn an image in the mind of the Israelites and so forever thereafter the color blue we brought to their remembrance the law of God as an expense now according to some very trusted sources out there him and I trust the sources I of course mean Wikipedia you can actually look at Jewish symbolism and among the Jews maybe a lot of you when I mention this now a lot of you were thinking I have never seen this before I never knew that the ten Commandments were made of sapphire while some stone in the glue that resembled sapphire I had no idea maybe a lot of it that way this is common knowledge in Jewish circles in Jewish lore okay the newbie to this excerpt in the Torah the Israelites are commanded to die on the threads of their colleagues which is a prayer shawl went to let within the Baptist die they would think of the blue sky and of the God above in heaven Tekelec corresponds to the color of the divine revelation and watch this blue and Judaism have just had an important significance throughout the history of Jewish culture up to the present who was also associated with the ten Commandments when Moses and the elders went up to Mount Sinai besought God standing on a Sapphire pigment blue and the tablets of the law were made on the stone I need sapphire and dust the blue undergarments was to be a permanent reminder of the law of God the Jews know this and so when you ask them what does blue represents you as it represents the law and a lot of people make disassociation anyway but even the work comes from they don't know why this can represent why is this type now what did it say the blue undergarments was to be a permanent reminder of the logon correct is does not play fast and loose with his symbols as a tree a beautiful symbol and then they proceed to completely disassociate dark-colored of all meeting and just use it randomly and arbitrarily know so then when you see an example such as this the closing of the great high priest and entered it says that there were certain colors that may be that you associate with that right to see them live at Exodus twenty eight versus two to three shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother for glory and for beauty you shall speak to all the skillful persons whom I have endowed with the spirit of wisdom that they make Aaron 's garments to consecrate him that he may minister as priests to me versus four to five these are the garments which they shall make a breast is an event and a rope and into the checkered work a turbine and a sash and he shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother and his sons that he may minister as priests to me now they shall take the gold and the blue and purple and scarlet material and finally the one for colors constituted the Army of the high priest old blue purple and scarlet and since we haven't studied the other colors one can be sure the color blue she represents at least the love God right nothing is left to chance and got great design not err in who serve as a high priest in the Temple in the sanctuary which is a copy of the heavenly sanctuary you can be sure that Aaron also serve as a copy of whom of our great real high priest Hebrews four fourteen therefore since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens Jesus the son of God let us hold fast our confession is sure that this color blue is represented on Jesus also rang out positive here in contrast this was something missing revolution chapter seventeen in Revelation seventeen we are given a description of the great whore of Babylon okay now a woman in the book of Revelation represents what a church right and people who worship something right and revelation chapter twelve received both of the women portrayed a pure woman to represent a pure church what was a prostitute represents a church that has plasticized or church that made claim to love Christ and to love the Lord but actually be betrayed him distrust and revelation seventeen describes this apostate church and in describing apostate church that these words it is revolutions and timbers for the woman clothed was clothed in purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls having in her hand gold cup full of the abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality what's color is missing from this description who so in other words this woman represents those in the church who fallen away from the Commandments of God as evidenced by the lack of blue and we know from John first John three for everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness because the is lawlessness the absence of the blue shows us one of the identifying earmarks don't differentiate the true church from the false church at the end of time to see them is when you see as the all search for same discharge is filled with Sandy Peterson Mistress is still within your same discharge lacks the law of God in her heart so just to recap you have side-by-side just supposed to have our great high priest with his blue and you have the whore of Babylon here in Revelation seventeen and the only difference between the two in terms of color as one has a lot one doesn't have a lot to see that are now let's turn back the Commandments of God were carved from the blue sapphire stone and above the sapphire stone lies the presence of God and this was on Mount Sinai but if you look at the Ark of the covenant with it contain what we know that colors from right but it contained a blue tablets right and above the Ark of the covenant was the Shekinah glory in the presence of God DC this one-to-one model this was given twice on Mount Sinai and so my friends I would wager this is was represented by Ark of the covenant this experience of seeing the presence of God in a sapphire stone from which the ten commands were carved isn't it beautiful how that was just a little board design the sanctuary and the articles you can retell the story of the Exodus and the story of the Exodus of Israelites is also foreshadow of the experiences that God 's church will go through at the end of types of this symbol as it has value retrospectively and prospectively is that beautiful and God encoded into the sanctuary itself he did to spell it out for us in naked midget if you did you will make it easy because it would boost the grandeur of it when you see the symbol like this and study so you think this is divine I cannot have devised such beautiful symbols you want having been scratched the surface in an inventory why once you find out this Bluestone is the location from which the ten commands were carved what would be a logical follow-up question what is this Bluestone right there is a strange blue stone upon which God is enthroned for his presence is about it under his feet and from it okay we get the ten commitments but what is this phone is what is this blue stone exactly for that answer we have to turn to Ezekiel chapter one and in this vision Ezekiel is given a fair degree strange description than many of us read and just pass over because it's so hard to understand but maybe it'll make more sense in light of what we discovered is until one first for as I looked behold a storm wind was coming from the north a great cloud with fire flashing forth continually in a bright light around it and in its midst something like glowing metal in the midst of the fire within it there were figures resembling for living beings see that for living beings here and this was their appearance they had human form each of them had four faces and four wings number sixteen now as I look at living beings behold there was one wheel on the earth beside living beings for each of the four of them skipping to verse twenty two now over the heads of living beings there was something like an expanse like the awesome gleam crystal spread out over their heads and you can see that strong here that Ezekiel one verse twenty six now above the expanse that was over their heads there was something resembling a throne like glasses last July now that the flashlight is a gemstone also colored blue and it looks very similar to Sapphire some translations of the Bible I should call the sapphire they like lab is less like in appearance and on that which resembled a throne high up with a figure with the insurance of a man so there was something that resembled a throne it was the color blue black lapis lazuli sapphire and on it was enthroned something with the appearance of a man in the conversely seven then I noticed of the insurance of his loins and upward something like glowing metal thin the blood fire all around within and from the appearance of his loins and downward I saw something like fire and there was a radiance around him first twenty eight as the appearance of the rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day so was the appearance of the surrounding radiance such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord and when I saw it I fell on my face and heard a voice speaking for is it that's enthroned above the stove from God it is a throne of God and so we know what is this Bluestone the stone is the throne of God the question if you were to look at the Ark of the covenant and the way it was meant to carry by four living beings and you look at the vision of Ezekiel and you see how the throne of God moves about my four living beings and then you look at the art of the company eight eight could this contain the Bluestone on which the logon script on which this foundation of government is based in Utica got source using the wrong on his throne and above it is his presence of his glory about the ark of the covenant is a Shekinah glory to see this one-to-one parallel God in symbolic form was showing us what exists in heaven for real the nastiness what then is the symbolic significance of the tank representing the logon being carved from his throne the foundation of his God was going to tell the Israelites who had just come out of Egypt has so much agent in them a forgotten all of the heritage their ability to comprehend spiritual truth is somewhere next to nothing okay in this state if God wanted to try the point home to their minds that this is important how much more powerful statement could be made into car something out of his throne and to give it to them what is the symbolic significance of that no matter how slow you were asked in grasping spiritual truths what about make you think a system difference this means something right when the drive home the point home and forever when he saw the color blue you think God 's law and God 's laws importance because he considered it so important he took it from zone from the best songs forty five or six your throne O God is for ever and ever a scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom God 's throne is forever so by extension the law of God can be changed along the way can be modified here and there needs to contextualize for the time and place and culture of the people of the ten Commandments now the ten Commandments something like to ask one of the ten Commandments don't represent the totality of God 's law but no the ten Commandments on every video content can be like God ever spoke of management find the principles undergird any law that God has ever spoken to us and you could even further distill ten Commandments into two simple statements that Jesus made love for God loved man right so symbolically this is talking about the law of God the ten Commandments question when God chose to write these ten commitments on these tablets of sapphire to make this beautiful powerful symbol to think he said what his list of things I can write on Skype right anytime you want to tablets because once just the same as another to think maybe there's something about these tentative vote that is so comprehensive in their scope that they can represent the totality of God 's law perhaps so then this day and age today does anyone have an issue with the ten Commandments if you run down the list you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone argue about the observance of any of the ten Commandments etc. one except perhaps one which am without the remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy all that was done when the cross I'm no longer under law but under grace so that one doesn't apply to me all right that's done away along with all the ordinances that were done away which were written in a separate book and placed next to the Ark of the covenant not in the ark of the covenant let alone written on the top of the blue if that was chew and God being an infinitely wise God that he has one piece in such a mixed message and placed his fleeting commandment to keep the Sabbath one day he was going to be done away with why would he inscribe this then with the other nine on pieces of his internal throne and illicit Israelites why did you also jot that down the book ordinances that were placed next to the art of the company interesting question half if you haven't thought of it think about now on the return to a difference portion of the change cases share a little bit and look further into the symbol and will be amazed at what comes next I look Exodus seventeen verse one then all the congregation of the sons of his sale journey by stages in the wilderness of sin according to the command of the Lord that within and there was no water for the people to drink everyone knows the story right now the vapors to therefore the people quarreled with Moses and said give us water that we may drink and Moses said to them why do you quarrel with me why do you test the Lord first three but the people thirsted there for water and the crumbled against Moses and said why now have you brought us up from Egypt to kill us and our children and our livestock with thirst for so Moses cried out to the Lord saying what shall I do to this people a little more and he will stone me Silverstein and the Lord said to Moses pass before the people and take with you some of the elders of Israel and taking your hand the staff with which you struck Nile and go for six behold I will stand before you there on a rock a any nondescript rock abhorrent or I will stand on the rock what is corporate Sinai another word is another name for Mount Sinai is horrid and you shall come strike the rock and water will come out of it that the people may drink and Moses did so in the sights of the elders of Israel if you're like me and grew up in church okay you seen countless illustrations of this amazing miracle water coming out of a rock and his nondescript little bolder somewhere most strife it and is little triple comes out and is nearly man army strong patient waits in line for their turn Philip theirs is water enough of themselves are wise to children and the cattle more sophisticated artist don't do much better you see this people scrambling over each other to get this little growth filling up their lives are assisting my goodness what a raw and this is exactly how we learn the story but this is not true first of all it's impractical except upon him and if this one oh five versus thirty nineteen forty two spread a cloud for covering and fire to illumined by night they asked him he brought quail and satisfied them with the bread of heaven of a diverse forty one he opened the rock and water flowed out of it it ran into dry places like a trickle like a river okay the previous pictures I showed you a River friends this is a river this is the kind of water that flow from Iraq with which God satisfied the thirst of the Israelites and look at this have this beautiful symbol okay in the journey in the wilderness to Mount Sinai and on the mountain of the Exodus story and then you have the law got been carved out of the throne of God and then from the throne of God is being issued this river of water that keeps life to the Israelites to God 's people is that beautiful is that people another question gone with something on earth for his pattern that can exist in heaven what he does this exist in heaven Revelation twenty two verse one if you showed me a river of the water of life clear clear as crystal coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb my friends this same picture exists in heaven that is why the word provided best picture here on earth to show that what you do not understand now you will understand later I encoding some of my most beautiful truth here on earth in my tabernacle my sanctuary on this whole mountain to teach you things about myself and about your future home just as the water of the river of life flows my phone this is the same source from which the law and the commands required for you so what does that say to obtain no listen to the this is for seven verse one Ezekiel is given a vision of sanctuary and this is what it says and he brought me back to the door of the house in the cold water was flowing from under the threshold of the house toward the east for the house aces East and the water was flowing down from under from the right side of the house from south of the altar now delivers twelve by the river on its bank on one side and on the other will grow all kinds of trees for food the leaves will not weather the fruits will not fail they will bear every month because their water flows from where the sanctuary and their foods will be for food and leads for healing keep this picture in my the trees that grow along the sides of the river of the water of life their fruit will not fail there needs lot whether because of thin with water that flows from the throne of God without your mantra to songs chapter one and the diverse lot for two how blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the path of sinners or sit in the seat of scoffers but his delight is in the law of the Lord and in his law he meditates day and night here is a man who loves the law of God meditates on it day and night that the pervading and free cell in his body what is effect verse three and she will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in season and it's leaf does not wither and in whatever he does he prospers to think his injuries accidents to think God is playing willy-nilly with the symbols what do you think there's a reason why the same symbol appears over and over again so what does this mean this means that from the throne of God issues the river of water that gives life to God 's people from the same twelve was issued God is patient that has commandments of God gives life point of God 's commandments is not to put a burden on her shoulders that he uses against us the BSL is is a you never going to measure up and am going to give you these lost and may depend on me for the rest your life the purpose of God 's commandments upon which is found that his government is sold to be his subjects and his government to have life to give life if you allowed to pervade your heart or soul and were told this by Jesus himself in John Chapter twelve verse fifteen he says and I know that his command is everlasting life therefore whenever I speak just as the father has told me so I speak but there's a problem is under the Commandments for some reason the resulting life for us at the moment and Paul describes the situation Romans seven versus ten three eleven and the Commandments which was to bring life that's original plan number was to bring life I found to bring death for sin taking occasion by the commandment deceived me by its children so what was originally a good thing up your thing a necessary thing saying which Satan introduced into the world took advantage of it and use it to kill us what was God 's answer to the predicament he wasn't going to change the law that was a was going to send you what this law now I'm just do away with because is bringing death my people what you original purpose of the law is that a bad thing or a good thing it's a good thing got not graduate away with it when but at the same time now because of sin that which is a good thing for blessing from God is bringing death to us what is God on all loving and all just a God to do without the law at the life-giving tool as a life-giving source in our lives when the law resulting for us sinful creatures is that because of lack of adherence to the law concept off access to rivers of the water of life this event and we don't have them wanted to close with one of God in your life is what happens your leads will will weather in your food will fail and the end result is that Jesus has an answer for that and this is a plan to guide me John seven versus thirty seven to thirty now on that last day the great day of the feast and this feasting the feast of tabernacles Jesus stood and cried out saying if anyone is thirsty let him come to me and drink he who believes in me as a descriptor said from his innermost being will flow rivers of living water if you come to me access to the rivers of living water which were not called from the casino use the law to cut off access to this water in your life but come to need a new drink this water and you will regain access wise she's is able to say this to a person first Corinthian 's ten percent before flight do not want you to be unaware brethren that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea and all ate the same spiritual food and all drink the same spiritual drink listen for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them and that rock was who Christ Paul is saying that Israelites in the desert the water flowed from Christ by which they were sustained in the desert so why does Christ have the right to now bridged a gap and save you what you lost this two rivers of the water of life assuming you don't have access why does you like to see that because of Matthew five seventeen do not think that I came to abolish the law or the prophets I did not come to abolish to fulfill the law and life together as one package from the throne of God where one exists the other must exist but here's the thing when sin entered our world we lost the connection with the law the law is now something that is use against us as we don't measure up to it because of sin when we lose a connection with the law we lose the entire package includes connection to the river of the water of life but Jesus says the company and restores connection why am I able to do this because I came to abolish the law not to do away with the law but to fulfill its requirements and soda in my person you may now stand and free reaching the water of life and you know what I'm not going to stop there because when you treat the water of life didn't actually allows you to bear fruit one is the fruits of the spirit keeping the law of God to see that were cut away from the law were cut away from the river of life Jesus enables us in our experience to reconnect with the river of life and in so doing with that experience we are not able to keep the commandment of God why is it transforms us for a creature were not the same person righteousness by faith righteousness by works the simplest way to define the difference between the two is an righteousness by works salvation comes worse comes before salvation righteousness by faith words after salvation is because we the still water of life through Christ and we allow this transforming power to completely come within us it is only because the back door to power the Holy Spirit we are not able to keep the law of God to see that very important now in the person of Christ we find the fulfillment of the law and the source of living water he provided Israelites with living water she also came to this earth to become the fulfillment of the law and that is why he says when I got up I will draw all people to myself down summary if you haven't taken anything else away from the site I wanted situated three points K listen very carefully the law was carved from the eternal throne of God the river of the water of life flows from this scene thrown Jesus left his throne to fulfill the law and become the source of the water for all of us see that everything emanates from the throne of God the law the water that gives life and guess what since sin separate us from this Jesus who is also on the throne left his throne so he can fulfill the law and bridge the gap from the source of living water for you and for me isn't that beautiful and this entire gospel story is encoded in the cheerful symbols essentially to see that it is inseparable so my challenge to this Jesus offers you not freely to drink from this transforming living water if you have not found in your personal Krishan walked experience of being able to walk with God in a way that brings joy to his heart you cannot do it on your own you can work your way into salvation him into this intent has been watered across offers freely landfilling with the Holy Spirit and so transform you and you will become like a tree planted by the rivers of the water that brings life so that you can vendor foods not because he worked so hard to bear it but because you are feeding from the water that flows in the sanctuary from the throne of God and by your fruits they will know to and that righteousness by faith but in heavenly father Lord we think so much for your deep wisdom and forty the fact that you care so much about us that you would give us such beautiful messages or encoded integer symbols your century and in the person of Christ we have only scratched the surface of the treasures of your word holds for us the board help each and every individual cheer to accept the water of life that Christ gives the image transform our hearts so that we may be seen as your children or by bearing fruits according to your character and your nature we love you have a father for the God that you are merciful and just an all wise be we dedicate our lives to you and me asking outdoor transform us and make us new listings up in your name and then
