IN LUKE 22 WE SEE OUR LORD

 

LET US LOOK AT PETER WITH THE THOUGHT OF SUFFERING FOR THE GLORY OF GOD. IT IS A SAD COMMENTARY TO THINK THAT ALL SUFFERING IN A PERSONS LIFE IS THE RESULT OF SIN. THIS REALLY DISTORTS THE TRUTH THAT IS IN GOD'S WORD.

 

1. THE PICTURE OF THE SIFT VRS. 31

A. TWO WAYS TO SIFT WHEAT
>THRESHING AS WITH A FAN, I SAW THIS IN KOREA RIGHT AFTER THE KOREAN WAR.
>SIFTING AS IN (Amos 9:9) For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
>THIS APPEARS TO BE TESTING, TRAINING AND DISCIPLINE

2. THE PRAYER OF THE SAVIOR VRS. 32

A. JESUS PRAYED BEFORE IT HAPPEN .... VISION

B. JESUS PRAYS AFTER IT HAPPENS .........VALUE

3. THE PROTECTION OF THE SOUL VRS. 32

A. THE SAINT WILL BE TESTED
>WHEN NOT IF

B. THE SAINT TEMPERED .... 1 PETER 5:10

4. THE PROBING OF THE SAINT VRS. 31

A. IN HIS PRIDE ABOUT HIS CONFIDENCE; PETER STUCK HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH. TRULY, I GUESS WE ALL ARE GUILTY OF THIS, ESPECIALLY AS A NOVICE IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD.

B. IN HIS PRAYER VRS. 45 PRAYED TOO LITTLE OR TOO LATE

C. IN HIS PERCEPTION VRS. 50;

D. IN HIS PATH OF FOLLOWING THE LORD VRS. 54

E. IN HIS PERSONAL WITNESS, VRS. 55-61

5. THE PURPOSE OF THE SIFTING VRS. 32

A. TO STRENGTHEN THE BRETHREN 11 COR. 1:4

B. TO STIR THE SAINTS; PETER WENT THROUGH A TUTORING , TRAINING STAGE BEFORE HE BECAME A TEACHER. WHEN HE TAUGHT HE USED THE TERM TO STIR UP OUR PURE MINDS .

C. TO SILENCE SATAN.. ALL SUFFERING IS NOT DUE TO SIN.

>ILLUSTRATE JOB.
>JOHN CHAP. 9
>THE APOSTLE PAUL 11 COR. 12
>REV. 12:10


 

(John 4:23-24) But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. {24} God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

WHEN WE WORSHIP GOD

 

THE WORD WORSHIP IN THE HEBREW WHICH MEANS TO BOW DOWN. TO PROSTATE ONESELF. IT EXPRESSES A REVERENT ATTITUDE OF MIND AND BODY. THE WORSHIPER IS IN COMPLETE SUBMISSION BEFORE GOD, AND THAT HE IS WORTHY OF ALL SUCH ACTIONS AND PRAISE.

WORSHIP IN THE GREEK MEANS TO KISS TOWARD OR TO KISS THE HAND. THE PICTURE OF ONE IN REVERENCE, AWE, BOWING IN COMPLETE SUBMISSION BEFORE GOD ALMIGHTY.

WE MUST WORSHIP BEFORE WE CAN EFFECTIVELY SERVE. AND THIS WORSHIP MUST BE A PERSONAL WORSHIP. PRIVATE WORSHIP SETS THE TONE FOR OUR PUBLIC WORSHIP. PRIVATELY WE PRAY, WE SING, WE STUDY HIS WORD, WE LIVE HIS WORD AND THEN WHEN WE COME TOGETHER TO PRAISE AND HONOR AND GLORIFY God THE ONENESS OF OUR SOULS OVERFLOW IN PRAISE TO GOD. IF OUR PRIVATE WORSHIP IS LACKING THEN OUR PUBLIC WORSHIP WILL BE LACKING. MOST OF OUR SERVICES ARE JUST MEETINGS WITH NO REAL WORSHIP INVOLVED. BUT WHEN WE PRIVATELY AND THEN PUBLICLY WORSHIP HIM THEN WE BEGIN TO SEE SEVERAL THINGS HAPPEN FOR HIS GLORY AND OUR GOOD.

 

1. WE BECOME CONSCIENCE OF OUR SIN

A. WE SEE THE HOLINESS OF GOD

>HIS PRESENCE
>HIS PURITY
>HIS POWER
>HIS PROVISION
>HIS PERSON

B. WE FEEL THE HOLY SPIRIT

>THE REALIZATION
>THE REWARD OF

 

2. WE CONFESS OUR SINS

A. THROUGH OUR PRAYERS
B. THROUGH OUR PRAISES

 

3. WE HEAR THE CRY OF SATISFACTION

A. SATISFIED WITH OUR SAVIOR

"I FIND NO FAULT IN HIM"

B. SATISFIED WITH OUR SERVICE

NOT MEASURED AS MAN MEASURES SUCCESS.


LUKE 13:10-17

 

WHAT HAPPEN IN THE PHYSICAL REALM OF MIRACLES IN THE GOSPELS ARE FOR US IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM. WE ARE IN A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM.

(Luke 13:10-17) And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. {11} And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. {12} And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. {13} And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. {14} And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. {15} The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? {16} And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? {17} And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.

1. A GREAT SUFFERING

A. CAUSE OF THE SUFFERING VRS. 11
     "SATAN HATH BOUND"

>RESULT OF THE ADAMIC NATURE
>RELATED TO THE GARDEN AND GARDNER OF EDEN

B. CONSEQUENCE OF SUFFERING VRS. 11
     "WAS BOWED"

>COULDN'T HELP HERSELF
>COULDN'T HELP OTHERS

2. GREAT SAVIOR

A. HIS COMPASSION VRS. 15,16

>THE OX BOUND WITH A CHAIN BUT FOR A SHORT TIME, >THE WOMAN BOUND BY SATAN 18 YRS.

B. HIS CONTROL VRS. 12,13

>AS A PATIENT THAT TRUST THEIR DOCTOR. ONE MUST TRUST THE SAVIOR SO MUCH MORE.

3. GREAT SALVATION

A. THE TRUTH VRS. 12

>BROUGHT RELIEF; "THOU ART LOOSED" IN THE GREEK THIS REFERS TO AN ACT THAT IS ALREADY PASSED. WHEN WE ARE BOUND BY THE SIN, SUFFERING WE CAN TAKE THE SAME CLAIM, (NOT THIS NAME IT AND CLAIM IT GAME), BUT THAT WE HAVE THE VICTORY AT CALVARY. I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES OVER THAT WE FIGHT FROM VICTORY NOT TO VICTORY. JESUS CHRIST GAVE US THE VICTORY ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY. IF WE ARE SUFFERING BECAUSE OF SATAN, THEN WE CAN BE FREE.

B. BROUGHT RENEWAL VRS. 13

>IMMEDIATELY SHE WAS MADE STRAIGHT" SHE WAS SAVED FROM HER BURDEN.

>IMMEDIATELY, RIGHT NOW, YOU THAT ARE HERE WITHOUT A SAVIOR. YOU TOO, CAN BE MADE FREE.

4. A GREAT SERVICE

A. RELIGION COULD NOT PERFORM. SHE WAS IN THE SYNAGOGUE AND NO ONE ELSE COULD HELP

B. REFORMATION COULD NOT HELP, SHE WAS BOUND.

C. REDEEMER (THE LORD JESUS CHRIST) COULD HELP, AND HE WILL HELP WHEN YOU COME UNTO HIM.

 


TEARS

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT TEARS CAN MOVE THE HEART AND HAND OF GOD, AND THE HEART OF THE SINNER. CERTAINLY WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE A SAVIOR THAT CAN BE TOUCHED WITH THE FEELINGS OF OUR INFIRMITY AND ONE WHO HAS SAID COME UNTO ME AND TAKE MY YOKE. WE HAVE A SAVIOR THAT HAS SAID HE CARES FOR US AND FOR US TO CAST OUR CARES UPON HIM.

THE LORD JESUS CERTAINLY SHOWED HIS COMPASSION IN FIRST LOVING US, DYING FOR US WHILE WE WERE UNGODLY.

HE ALSO SHOWED HIS EMPATHY IN HIS TEARS. THE INCARNATE GOD OF HEAVEN DID SHED TEARS OVER HIS BELOVED FRIENDS.

1. TEARS OF JESUS

A. TEARS AT A GRAVE          JOHN 11:35
>HERE HE SAW THE LOVED ONES OF LAZARUS IN SORROW AND THE LORD JESUS WEPT.

B. TEARS OF GRIEF              LUKE 19:41
>HERE HE SAW HIS OWN, AS HE CAME TO HIS OWN AND HIS OWN DID NOT RECEIVE HIM. HE WEPT OVER JERUSALEM.

C. TEARS IN THE GARDEN              HEB. 5:7
>HERE HE SAW THE CROSS DESPISING THE SHAME, LOOKING FORWARD TO THE JOY, GLORY. JESUS WEPT IN THE GARDEN AS HE PRAYED

2. TEARS OF JOSEPH

A. TEARS OF GRATITUDE           GEN 45:15
WHEN JOSEPH SAW HIS BROTHERS HE WEPT. HE WAS WEEPING FOR HIS FAMILY. THE SONG SAYS THAT TEARS ARE A LANGUAGE THAT GOD UNDERSTANDS. HAVE WE WEPT WITH A CONTRITE SPIRIT FOR OUR FAMILY?

3. TEARS OF MARY

A. TEAR OF GRACE       LUKE 7:38        
 HERE WE HAVE A WOMAN THAT IS HUMBLE AND IS HONORING THE LORD JESUS.

4. TEARS OF ESAU

A. TEARS OF GUILT       HEB. 12:17 ESAU'S TEARS WERE NOT OF REPENTANCE, ALTHOUGH HE SOON REPENTANCE CAREFULLY. GUILT, REGRET, REFORMATION AND RELIGION IS NOT REPENTANCE.


IS THERE ANY WORD
FROM THE LORD?

(Jer 37:17) Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the LORD? And Jeremiah said, There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon.

IN OUR DAYS OF GRACE AND THE TIME OF GLEANING OF THE CHURCH AGE, THERE ARE SO MANY PSEUDO DREAMS, VISIONS AND SO-CALLED WORDS FROM THE LORD.

BUT DEAR LISTENER, THERE IS A WORD FROM THE THE LORD.

JEREMIAH DID NOT CHANGE HIS MESSAGE, EVEN THOUGHT HE WAS LOCKED UP, EXILED, THREATEN AND SO-ON. HE STILL HAD THE MESSAGE FOR ISRAEL TO GET RIGHT.

THE CHURCH STILL HAS THE SAME MESSAGE FROM ITS BEING.

 

1. THE MESSAGE HASN'T CHANGED

A. THE FACT 1 JOHN 1:5-7

B. FAITH        HEB. 11:

C. FUTURE     JUDE 14

2. THE MEANING HASN'T CHANGED

A. SIN                  ROM. 6:23

B. SEPARATION 11 COR. 6:17

C. SALVATION    ACTS 4:12

3. THE MASTER HASN'T CHANGED

A. HIS WORD            JOHN 1:1,2

B. HIS WAY               JOHN 14:6

C. HIS WEALTH        PHIL. 4:19
