Revelation 12-18: Signs and Symbols
"John continues explaining his vision to us today in. Its filled with lots of signs and symbols. That means many of these things aren't literal their symbolic and while there is some debate. Now about what. These things mean if we try to figure out how to apply them to future events. John's original audience probably wasn't confused at all. They saw this vision through the lens of israel's history and as you know jewish literature loves signs and numbers and symbols so will impact some of that today. I we see a woman giving birth to a child that would rule the nations. There's a beast that doesn't like this. Who tries to put a stop to it. All she goes to live in the wilderness. Where god takes care of her. Does any of that sound familiar. Most people think this woman is israel that satan is the dragon and that the stars that got swooped down by the dragon's tail or the angels. Who joined him. War breaks out in heaven between the elect. Angels and satans angels and the elec angels win so satan and his angels are addicted. Since they can't stay in heaven they mount an attack on earth but god miraculously protects israel boarded again. Satan's angel goff to attack. God's other kids and in john's times they likely would have seen this as referring to the gentiles. Or maybe the church at large. Or maybe the remnant of israel in chapter thirteen giannis. A sea beast. It sounds a lot like the dragon. Seven heads ten horns and if you're with us in the old testament you may remember that horns symbolize kings or kingdoms there a sign of power. Everybody on earth thinks the beast is awesome. And if you're alive during john's day you're probably thinking oh right room because everyone worships this beast. Except for god's kids according to verse eight and for the jews in john's day this would be a flashback to the book of daniel when he and a few of his friends were living in babylon and king nebuchadnezzar demanded to be worshiped. So in verse eleven. John reminds his readers. How god's kids are called to respond in this kind of situation he says ear is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. The way to overcome is to remain faithful despite persecution next. John describes an earth beast. This beast has a lot of power over the people of earth and does a lot of things that are attempts to counterfeit god in his ways. It looks like a lamb at fakes. Its own resurrection. And it has people mark themselves on the forehead and the hand remember the factories. We talked about a little leather boxes with scripture and then that religious jews where that comes from deuteronomy six four through eight which says eero israel the lord our god the lord is one you shall love the lord god with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might and these words that i command you today shall be on your heart you shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as front litz between your is the beast counterfeits this with his own name instead of the name of god and remember how in hebrew every letter of the alphabet has a number assigned to it. The beast name is spelled with the letter. Six six six which also happens to be how you spell out the name of nero the roman emperor so this probably isn't literal. It's probably representative of who you worship. There are other ways to interpret this through a modern lens but if we look at it through the lens of john's readers they likely would have understood roamed be babylon two point which we already know from i peter five and they probably would have seen this hand forehead business as representative of who you belong to are you mark. With god's name or rome's we're in jerusalem in chapter fourteen. And jesus is there with a one hundred and forty four thousand which again maybe a precise number. It is probably symbolic of a much larger number. These marked with god's name on their foreheads and probably not literally they sing and worship god then three angels show up with three messages angel number. One says worship god because judging is coming angel number two says babylon is fallen. Angel number three says those who worshipped the beast. Instead of god will hit god's judgment and everlasting punishment and again. John reminds his readers in verse. Twelve year is a call for the endurance of the saints. Those who keep the commandments of god and their faith in jesus despite the attacks of the beast god has the final. Say some angels assist. Maybe jesus in beginning to work out justice and vengeance on the earth by the way. John says these angels come out of the temple in heaven yesterday and today. We've seen three references to this temple in heaven. Some believe the earthly temple was a literal replica of a temple in heaven and simply the word temple is just a reverence to god's dwelling place in general and this may or may not be the same thing referred to in chapter fifteen as the sanctuary of the tent of witness seven. More angels. Come out carrying seven bowls of god's wrath which are also described as plagues. Some of these plagues might remind you of what we saw. A longtime ago in egypt sores on those who don't worship god the season the rivers and springs become blood the sun scorch and burns people then darkness than the river dries up and the enemies of god used their demonic powers to perform signs just like barros magicians then before the seventh bowl the armies at the world gathering the planes of armageddon on our trips to israel we stand on mount carmel and look over that patch of land in john's day. It served as the crossroads of the world kind of like the atlanta airport and while the armies are gathered there. The seventh angel pours out his bowl of earthquakes. Fallen city sunken islands crumbling mountains lightning thunder and one hundred pound. Hailstones and god makes babylon or rome. Drink the cup of his wrath
The Sacredness of Truth
"According to God's word and in the next compartment we move on to learning of the sacredness of Truth the sacredness of truth actually this 2016 says this it says you shall not bear false witness against Germany. Were you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor? Seems simple quit lying. Let's go Sun Prairie. Right? Like I mean in that sense it is it is simple to straight forward. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. So you shall not what are we dealing with first? It says you shall not bear false witness. What does that mean? Well, how about this you shall not hold on to lies of any kind to Bear is the whole right? I can bear you up on my shoulder if you're of a certain size and then I'll fall over if you're bigger, but I can bear most of you I can carry most of you. So do not bear false witness don't hold onto false ideas. Don't hold onto lies don't have them as part of your life or part of your thinking in any way shape or form. How many of us as we get into the word of God how many of us as we learn more of what God has said how many of us have realized that there are lies in our life and lies in our thinking. Things that were lies when we took them on and things that we absorbed and held onto later on which were deceptions. It says do not bear false witness do not hold onto lies of any kind. It says do not bear false witness against your neighbor says don't use that lie to attack the other we are not to use the lies that we hold to attack the other. I mean in general, it's not your business to be attacking people under there's Believers. We're not called to that. We're called to what love so that pretty well concludes the attacking of other people in general, but we're called to not bear false witness were called to not allow ourselves to enter into the false use of words to hurt the other way. It's thinking specifically of a court case in a court case. If you have false Witnesses, it puts a terrible spin on to what's going on people will come in and lie in front of the judge jury and do great harm to the person who's being the defendant or perhaps great good to someone who may deserve something else. Again, we're called to not falsely accuse or to slander someone you see lying about another person as we deal with them is about slander. One of the things I've noticed is that when when someone gets done with you you break up with a friend or someone else you ever heard. Someone say to you. You don't want to tell you what I really think you. And if you got good sense you go because what that means is I'm about to tell you the worst things. I thought about you at any time in our relationship not have been close enough to make some bad observations right off. I'm really it's it's a hyperbole a speech. It's taking something and blowing it all over before Shannon and you're at some point you're slandering this person. You're just tearing them to Pieces. Why you because you're hurt because you're angry because your child is because you're mature again, we're not called we're not allowed to by this commandment falsely accused her to slander to to tear apart someone to hurt someone just because we're angry. Deuteronomy 19 18 or 19 verses eighteen and twenty says this it says the judges shall investigate thoroughly and if the witness is a false witness, he has testified against his brother falsely then we shall do to him just as he had planned to do this brother you shall eliminate social you eliminate all of the evil from among you and the rest of the people here and be afraid off and will never again do such an

Fear God by Keeping His Law (Deuteronomy 17:1420)
"Chapter seventeen versus fourteen through twenty. When you come to the land, the larger God is giving you and you possess it in dwell on it, and then say I was set a king over me like all the nations that are around me. You may indeed set a king over you whom the Lord your will choose. One from among your brothers you shall set is king over you. You may not put a foreigner over you who is not your brother only he must not acquire many horses for himself or cause the people to return to Egypt in order to acquire many horses.

And that he may not turn aside from the commandment either to the right hand or left so that he may continue long in his kingdom, he and his children in Israel. Now, as we are praying leading up to presidential election. In the United States on be careful in reading from Deuteronomy to make sure it's clear.

The First Days: Genesis
"Audience. For Genesis, is crucial and particularly when we get to these first days, we've covered this a little bit already, but it'd be good to just circle back so that we make sure that the audience knows This is who the original audience is for the book of Genesis and so when we're talking about the book of Genesis, we're talking about kind of. Volume one of a five book series called the Pinta toot the first five books of the Old Testament Genesis Exodus Leviticus numbers, deuteronomy these books are entrusted. These words are revealed to Moses who is now the representative rescuer and leader for the people of Israel, and they are getting this revelation on the outside of Egypt. They have been rescued from Egypt they have been brought to Mount Sinai and goddess forming then to take them in to Canaan to the promise land that is the original audience. This is post exodus Israel hearing from y'all way creator of the world. So they're hearing a creation story. That predates them significantly, it goes all the way back not just before their time in Egypt but before father Abraham all the way back back back back to the beginning and why is this crucial for us to understand when we start looking at genesis one through eleven that this is who the original audience is. Yes. So one of the reasons Moses writing is because he wants to prepare that they're in that in between space between they've left and where they're headed and so he writes these first five to give them roots and shoots. He wants to root them in. This is where you came from and he wants to give them shoots. He wants to give them something that will hold them steady. In the place that they're going so it's it's the history and the law is the combination that you're gonNA. See there and we talked about in a previous episode about the sort of the classic worldview questions that that these eleven chapters in particular are asking and answering, and as you pointed out Kyle I think that they're not just asking and answering those questions in a vacuum. So those questions of. Where did I come from? Why am I here what's the problem? What's the solution those questions are being asked and answered within the context of where they came from and where they're headed so that they will understand why Israel is a nation set apart yeah. Yeah. That's really good and so. We the roots and shoots thing is that's very valuable. So the story is not just. Oh, you did. Okay. Great I am I. The only one here is not just add living. GOLLY shoot. Now. Yeah. I think that that's really good in it reminds me of something for end of the show friend friend of ours WHO's taught for us in different environments that roots and shoots. Things reminds me of what Jerry. Jones says jt you're gonNA love this quote. You remember it. If he says, your creation story determines the trajectory of your culture. The. Roots and shoots thing where like. Israel is receiving a creation story and jt through this word out in an earlier episode but it's important I think it's important. To capture this creation story, we could call that a cosmology. COSMOLOGY and they're receiving it in in a world of competing. Creation Stories competing cosmology. Jt isn't that right? Like Israel is not just they're not like Ginseng. Story in a vacuum. They're receiving the story in a world where there are other accounts of how this has happened at yeah. Just back up what is what is cosmos? Like? Why do we have the word cosmology? What does it mean? Are you asking me? Yeah, I'm asking you is used it so you should make him to find it. I don't know if he can but I'm pretty sure you know I'm just getting. Yeah. I mean it's just talking about the. Creation of the cosmos of the world like it's it's just a fancy way of talking about the creation account and how to make sense of who is the Creator? What is the creation? What is the purpose of the crater creation relationship? You'd say, yeah, absolutely I mean, in some ways, cosmology would be like theology cosmos is the world the Earth, right? So it's like study of the World Study of the Earth Account of the world words about the world whereas theology is words about God's when we're talking about cosmology or cosmology as we're talking about words about the world, the account of creation or how things came to. Be.
What the Resurrection Means for Us
"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. Romans ten nine. What does it mean to believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead? Satan believes that God raised Jesus from the dead. He. Saw It happen. To answer this question. We need to ponder what the? Resurrection. means. For God's people. The meaning of the resurrection is that God is for us. He aims to close ranks with us. He aims to overcome all our sense of abandonment and alien nation. The resurrection of Jesus is God's declaration to Israel and to the world that we a- work our way to glory. But that he intends to do the impossible to get us there. The resurrection is the promise of God. That all who trust Jesus we'll be the beneficiaries of God's power to lead us in of righteousness and the Valley of death. Therefore. Believing in your heart that God raised. Jesus from the dead is much more accepting a fat. It means. Being confident that God is for you that he has closed ranks with you that he is transforming your life that he will save you for eternal. Joy. Believing the resurrection means trusting in all the promises of life and hope and righteousness for which it stands. It means being so confident of God's power and love that no fear of worldly loss or greed for worldly gain will moore us to disobey his will. This is the difference between Satan and the saints. Oh my God circumcise our hearts to love him deuteronomy thirty six. And to rest in the resurrection of his son.
"deuteronomy" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"As of today. We've read six books of the Bible together. Congratulations not only that. But in finishing Deuteronomy. Today we've also finished the whole. Torah which is what the Jews call the first five books of the Bible written by Moses for most people. The tour is where Bible reading plans. Go to die so the fact that you're still here is huge. God has drawn you into something here and I'm praying for you that he will continue to carve out time for himself and your schedule to give you wisdom knowledge and understanding and humility as you read to keep showing you new things about himself to correct any lies. You believe about him or anything misunderstand and to help these truths take root in your heart in a way. That is transformative. I bet you've already seen that happening in your life and maybe others have even taken notice too when we fix our eyes on who got his real. Change takes place yesterday as we wrapped up by reading. God told Moses to write a song about the Israelites past present future it would serve as a reminder to them when they were called this song after rebelling against God at some point in the days to come and it's a lengthy song lots of lyrics. The song starts out by calling Israel to pay attention as he proclaims God's greatness which is what comes next and just like with most songs and poetry. We see some poetic devices used here. Simile metaphors personification anthropomorphized hyperbole. Sue Don't panic when you read phrases like they are no longer his children because they are blemished crooked and twisted generation. God hasn't cast them off forever. This kind of hyperbole emphasizes the weight of what has happened. The context helps clarify terrifying versus like that. The story line of the song should be familiar to you. God created Israel. He blessed them increase them. They turned their back on THEM TO PURSUE IDOLS DEMON. Gods and he grew angry and promises to discipline them in a plan. To make Israel jealous you'll even lavish affection on other nations and that's good news for those of us who aren't of Jewish descent. Anytime Israel rejects. God He always uses it as part of his plan to integrate other nations into his family as well part of that plan involved sending Israel into disaster. But he's measured in all of that never wanting the enemy to get credit for their victory over Israel the only way to gain victory. Over God's people is if God allows it but God will have compassion on Israel in their weakness and defeat and he will bring about justice by the way the word Yeshua Rhone. That appears three times in the song is a reference to the Israelites. Outside of the song. It only appears one other time in scripture it means upright ones and it's used almost ironically in this song since it's a song about how they aren't upright. This is the song God wants the people to remember when there at the beginning of the story about to turn to idols. He wants to stop them before they fall away into apostasy and if they refuse to listen at that point then he wants them to remember it. When they're halfway through the story it tells he wants them to remember that he's still there loving them. Then after Moses things this song to them God tells him which mountain to go to dial. In from the top of that mountain he'll be able to see the promised land before he dies before he goes up today. He offers a final blessing to eleven of the twelve tribes. You may have noticed that the tribe of Simeon isn't mentioned. Here did Moses. Just forget them because he's super old. You know all the semi nights were probably standing around going on. Excuse me what about us? This probably wasn't forgetfulness. On those as part it was probably a prophetic move on his part delivering an indication of what God had in store. The semi nights would eventually be dispersed and the tribe of Judah would absorb them. This hasn't happened yet in our story. But Jacob also prophesied along these same lines in genesis forty nine seven after Moses blessed them he went up to the mountain. God directed him to solve the Promised Land and died old and strong. Then we see something kind of strange and beautiful scripture says God buried Moses not on Mount Nebo where he died but in the valley. We have no idea what that looked like. Maybe there was a theology and God took on the form of man to bury him or something else. I don't even have the brain power to think of regardless God buried him in a different spot in the spot where he died and no one knows where that spot is exactly. This probably served to prevent them from building a shrine on his grave that could have led to idolatry in the future. Israel mourned for him for thirty days. Then we in Deuteronomy with the encouraging reminder that Joshua their new leader is filled with the spirit of wisdom. God knows they need that then we moved onto psalm ninety one. It's very similar to what we just read in Deuteronomy. Thirty two and thirty three. Even though most of it wasn't originally written to be a song it seems that one of the Psalmist set Moses words to music so they could be sung and remembered. It's a sweet reminder for the Israelites. Who got is and what he is brought them through. I also know lots of people who prey this psalm. Allowed every before they go to bed especially people who suffer from Nightmares Night Terrors. And this chapter is also where my God shot came from. Today I spent about twenty minutes meditating on the implications of verse fourteen which says because he holds fast to meet in love. I will deliver him. I will protect him because he knows my name. The Hebrew words used here are so potent. The word used for holds fast in the phrase. He holds fast to me. Indicates a longing and desire and in the phrase he knows my name the word used for no is the same word used to say things like. Adam knew his wife. It indicates intimate knowledge and since name indicates character than to say he knows my name means God to be saying something like he is intimately acquainted with who I truly am. You know. That's what we're doing here right unless you're playing some kind of weird game where you're pouring yourself into studying scripture but completely disconnecting it from your heart and your life then. There's a good chance that you're actually falling more in love with God through this your heart is being nit to him in a way that is like longing and desire you probably find yourself wanting to read your Bible sometimes and maybe that feeling is taken by surprise. Maybe it's all together new and unfamiliar to you through this. He's teaching you to hold Bass to himself. He showing you who he is teaching you to know his name. I believe there's deliverance and protection for us in this deliverance from the world and from ourselves deliverance into greater freedom and joy. An end to him because he's wear the joy is we're starting a new book tomorrow. And we've got a short video overview linked for you in the show notes today. Check that out.

"Most continues. His farewell speech today and he covers a wide variety of laws in these three chapters. We don't have time to touch on them all so I'll just pull a few from the ones that might have been the most perplexing from our reading most of which pertain to relationships between men and women but before we get there I want to remind us about a few things just so we have the proper framework for what we're encountering here. God is not setting up a Utopian Society where everything is ideal. Got His meeting the people where they are giving them a framework for a functional society where people are treated with at least the bare minimum level of respect when God addresses something like multiple wives. It doesn't mean he's putting a seal of approval on it. It means he's acknowledging that it happens and he's giving them honorable ways to respond to an imperfect sinful situation will hit some challenging passages. Today it's important for us to remember not to overlay our cultural experience onto there's speaking of which let's get over the first tough segment marrying female captives for anyone in Western society. Today this idea is really cringe. Inducing we even balk at the idea of arranged marriage and this feels like it fringes on our idea of love and marriage even more one of the things. We have to remember about this society as that marriage rarely fit. Our modern ideas of love very rarely did a woman especially Mary for love. They often married as a means of being provided for. So the situation we've got here is that the Israelites would have conquered a city and killed all the men but taken the women and children alive. Some of these women would have been absorbed into the society but if a man found a woman he wanted to marry. It's quite likely she wouldn't have objected. And this Law God set out here honored the woman by giving her a thirty day period of time to mourn and grieve all she has lost before marrying the Israelite man. If for any reason things in the marriage went south God protects the woman by requiring the man to treat her with honor. Not like she's his property. Please don't Miss God's heart in this. Even though so much of this seems archaic we can still see God's plan to provide for the woman through the man and to protect her if the man fails to honor her well. We have a few more laws dealing with relationships between men and women some of which pertained to a woman's virginity there are a lot of ancient traditions some of which are also cringe-worthy about how a couple should approach their first night of marriage. Most study bibles and commentaries. We'll have more info on this if you're curious. One of the many detrimental aspects of sexual infidelity was that it could potentially threaten the tribes economy and land inheritance as God had distributed it so it was important for them to have laws to protect against this. Moses also sets out a few standards for determining whether a woman has been raped or not. I know the portion saying if it happened in the country and if it happened in the city have the potential to be confusing. But here's the premise. Behind it if the encounter happened in the country even if she screamed no one would be around to hear her so she was given the benefit of the doubt. If it happened in the city people would be around to hear her. Screams of objection. God's heart is for Justice here and he's setting up rules. That can help people make determinations about what really happened on a case by case basis. There's one other potentially confusing thing. I WANT TO COVER I. There was the section where Moses gives laws about not mixing different things together seeds in a field animals for ploughing and fabrics and garment. We don't really know the reasons behind these laws but the commentaries. I read suggested that it had something to do with reminding the Israelites of the importance of being set apart from other nations. Who Don't follow. Y'All way these laws may have served as little daily reminders of how they were to be separate. It's also worth noting. This passage mentioned not Yogi a donkey and an ox together but they also wouldn't mix two of the same animal with varying degrees of strength. A yoke is a piece of wood that goes across the animals next to hold them together while they pull a plow. And if you have one strong animal and one week animal. The strong one can move fast but the week when move slower and they end up going in circles. So if you've ever heard Paul's command from Second Corinthians six fourteen says do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. That's what he's talking about. Paul doesn't want us to end up going in circles following Christ while yoked to someone else who isn't it makes it nearly impossible to move forward. What was your God shot today? There were two sections about curses. That stood out to me in twenty one. Twenty three in the laws about a man who was punished by being hung on a tree. The law says his body shall not remain all night on the tree. Beat you shall bury him. The same day for a hanged. Man is cursed Paul Reference this law in Galatian three thirteen when he said Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us for it is written. Cursed is everyone who has hanged on a tree Christ took on the curse for us and again in today's reading and twenty three five Moses said the Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing for you because the Lord your God loved you. This was in reference to the locks efforts to get bail him to curse the Israelites in numbers. Twenty two to twenty four and today's reading reminded me of all that of how God reverses futures he takes the thing we deserve what we've truly fully earned which is the curse and absorbs it himself through his death on the cross so that we might receive the blessing just like the Israelites. Did the God who turns my curse to a blessing is the God. I want to worship forever. He's where the joy is. Okay Bible readers. It's time for our weekly check in. How are you doing?

"deuteronomy" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"Today. We continue with Moses and his grand finale before the Israelites crossed the Jordan River and take the promised land to live in it. Moses has been giving laws for how things will shift once. They're no longer camping in the desert. Today he starts out with some laws about worship. He reminds them that they're entering into foreign territory. Where Pagan Gods are revered? If anyone does worship those other gods there will be a trial involving at least two witnesses before the death penalty is given and the witnesses are the ones who have to carry out that justice. So if they're lying then they'd be guilty of murder and because these situations can be complex and challenging sometimes God sets up. A court of appeals made up of judges and priest to handle the more difficult matters. Moses predicts that there will be a day after they settle in the land when the look around and be like. Hey All these other nations have kings. We should get one of those. When the time comes God will choose an Israelite for them to set up as a king over them but it's important for their kings not to be drawn to wealth power or women. If you know much about any Israelite kings you already know. This isn't going to end well. The prohibition against these things was supposed to keep them humble and trusting in God for their provision and protection instead of and what they could acquire for themselves. Wealth can lead a person's heart astray. Horses represent power which is usually about military prowess and acquiring foreign wives was often away of making political alliances with other nations who were all pagan which also meant that. The women might lead their hearts stray. It's vital for the king to stay. Humble Moses even said the king should have his own book with God's laws written in it so he can read it daily for the rest of his life his heart is at stake and power has a way of corrupting people leading them off the path of righteousness. But reading God's Word With Keep Him Upright and humble God also promises to raise a new prophet from among them someone like Moses who hears from God and speaks his words to them so you can imagine it would be such a slap in the face for them to seek out answers from mediums or fortune tellers. Because not only are those people wicked but the Israelites themselves. Already have access to God and his council and as far as the prophet is concerned. God will not only hold the prophet accountable for what he says but he'll also hold the people accountable to listening to him and God gave the promise that any true prophet would have all his prophecies. Come to pass. If even failed he was not a prophet appointed by God in Chapter. Twenty God sets up some details for their military service. This is a unique scenario. This particular nation state has God as their commander in chief. He starts out by reminding them who he is and what he has done and that they shouldn't fear large armies because he has already defeated larger armies on their behalf. God is always the bigger Army God is always the majority in fact. He doesn't mind if their army is smaller. He tells the commanding officers to spread the news. Are you a young soldier with a new wife or a new house or a new garden? Go home and enjoy it. You don't have to war with us. We'll be fine without you. Are you afraid you're free to go? We've already seen that beers communicable so we only want people here who trust in God and his promises then. He prepares them for how to go about approaching cities outside the promised. Land approach them with peace if they return peace take the city peaceably. If the city doesn't comply kill all the men of the land and take everyone else and everything else as plunder in two thousand fourteen even says you shall enjoy the spoils of your enemies which the Lord your God has given you. These rules for warfare outside the promised land are different than for those inside it for any cities inside it. Remember that God is accomplishing at least three things. Through this process of giving that land to the Israelites burst. He's fulfilling his promise to Israel. Second is aiming to wipe out the signs of idolatry so that they don't tempt the Israelites and third. He's using Israel as a means of enacting justice on the wicked nations that currently occupy the land as part of all that he tells Israel to completely wipe out all the people they'll be overtaking the promised land on the surface. I know it's hard to see this as a good and just command from God but hang in there as we keep reading. Because I believe you'll begin to see the wisdom in his words. What was your God shot? Today there was a phrase that showed up three times today in caught my eye. We've seen it before in Deuteronomy. We'll see it again today. It was in seventeen seven seventeen. Twelve and Nineteen Nineteen Moses said purge the evil one from your midst in these instances. It seems almost certain that this indicates capital punishment. They're instructed to kill the offender. I think the reason this phrase jumped out at me is because I recognize it from I. Corinthians five thirteen where Paul is giving instructions on how to handle unrepentant centers in the church people who are walking in blatant rebellion. He tells the Church to purge the evil person from among you. However in Paul's letter. This wasn't a call for capital punishment. It was a command to disassociate with the person in hopes that the consequences might awaken them to the reality of their sin. And they'll repent when I look at the long arc of God's story line I see how much he leans into grace toward his kids. Because Christ has received our punishment he gives so many second chances so much time to repent and despite the fact that we all deserve to be purged in the original sense. He's patient with centers. That's a very general statement so let me make it more personal. He's patient with me when I rebel against him. He's patient with you when you question his heart. He's patient with all of us when we think would make a better God than him and even when we don't believe it or a member it he's wear the joy is if you're tired of Fluffy Bible studies places where people interact at a surface level or worse yet are nothing more than a social gossip circle then D group is for you.

Faith and Parenting in 2020: Intimacy and Marriage
"Wants US train up our children in his way of life you know impress on them. Your children talk to them as you sit at home when you walk along the road when you lie down when you get up we read this in Deuteronomy read this throughout Biblical truth one. One of the most important areas to talk to our kids about lance is sex. Sex is a way of expressing love between husband and wife. This is made plain in Paul's pissing Fijian's as we read and five husbands love. Your Wives Justice Christ also loved the Church and gave himself for her that he should that she should should be holy and without blemish so husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. For this reason it man shall leave his father and mother and joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh and in the Timothy. We read young leader of the Church. As Paul's talking to Timothy he says to Timothy Flea we also youthful lust instead pursue righteousness. Faith love peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart we find and that in the second Timothy and escaping thing that we read about you know we've been talking about born in the last couple of podcast half of the. US adults lands fifty percent agree. Strongly that quote choosing not only the have sex outside of marriage is healthy unquote but generational differences are significant. Embargoes out in say a six. Ten elders older generation fifty nine percent of them agree strongly with his statement. Compared to fifty three percent of baby boomers forty nine nine percent of Gen xers and forty. Three percent millennials that it doesn't necessarily have to be between you know a husband and the wife. And so. Who is we get into this you know lance hot? What say you on? Why is it? So important to differentiate with our kids the idea of sex intimacy in a godly basis versus. What cultures telling us you know? I think it's this one of those topics where we don't would. We don't always want to talk about it but honestly our children are going to learn They'RE GONNA learn from us. What sex what marriage? What intimacy looks like and and I think honestly our marriage starts as one of the biggest examples of that not not to toot my own horn or anything but you know my my wife life and I constantly get comments about us? You know from friends and things like that that we have this sense of love and intimacy that you don't see in a lot of marriages is and even our kids realize that That there is this sense of of love and intimacy between Me and my wife I'm I'm glad that we were able to model that To our children and I think as as parents really important part because Believe me if we don't come in and we don't teach model to our kids The the biblical purpose enroll of sex the cultures gonNA come in and tell them it's something else Known Donte you're talking about right now and we saw some of the statistics from last week's podcast and some of the stuff barnes doing but many in our culture right now they see sex. It's a fundamental human rights. And it's just a bodily function society's kind of devalued what it's what what is meant to be shared between one man and one woman and God's Holy Marriage Covenant Covenant and our our culture kind of teaches now that that sex is not a big deal as long as it's two consenting adults involved. We saw the research on that last week. Where people agreed to that that is as long as two consenting adults WANNA have sex whether they're married not married in a marriage not married whatever? Go ahead and do it And the The other Stark factor Dante in. We were talking about this. In Barnard's researchers actually comes from the book. Good faith and this really stood out to me that The the way that we've devalued sex is a culture and the easy access everyone has to pornography right now. It cheapens sex and takes away from the deep intimacy. God intended to to be shared between a husband and wife and what they talked about in the book and in some of the Barna Research. Is that the issue that this has and I know you know. I've seen a lot of younger. People can probably relate to this. They just don't realize cicadas but this casual approach to sex's creating negative relationship hurting side effects And instead of Intimacy and emotional depth depth. Sex Any way you want. It is leading leading to more anxiety more depression more loneliness and more insecurity and for some we see the sexes. No longer even worth the trouble. You've got people now who I can. Just I don't have to go after sex. I can stay home and use pornography or you know. There's this thing in its. I hate to get into this Dante. What is GonNa if you haven't heard of this coming up? There's a sink called hookups. Where young people say? I don't want I want my sexual needs met. I want I want. I want to be sexually gratified but I don't necessarily want the emotional baggage the The amount of time and effort to put into a a healthy relationship. So I'd rather just jump into bed with somebody for a one night. Stand get my sexual needs met and then I can move on with my life And this this you know when you couple couple this with the prevalence in the access to pornography on demand this is really. It's it's having a cost on relationships it's having a cost on intimacy and ultimately want someday in when we get married it's GonNa have a cost As as what we bring into the marriage One one of the start. You know things. I think that They pointed out in the barn. Research was an I don't I I can't verify this so you can call me on this but playboy magazine in the you know Hugh Hefner the guy that kind of started the whole pornography or naked women in magazines business stopped. They actually don't Publish that in their magazine anymore. Because they said There's such a high prevalence. Everybody has access to porn that they've stopped even publishing publishing that type of stuff. And all this you know not going on rabbit hole here. But all of this is because these cultural The cultural beliefs the way our culture is going. It's ultimately it has consequences in these consequences is being seen within the intimacy in once. Finally people are getting married. They're getting into what we would call a A godly marriage. They're bringing some of this baggage and some of this emotional damage from years of Of of not not being biblical might be moral into marriage and it's causing issues in the marriage. And that was one of the scariest things to me Dante. As we talk about giving into self I give into my sexual gratifications gratifications I given to. What's desirable pleasurable right now? There's going to be long term consequences for that. Does that make sense you. Yeah my wife and I do marriage mentoring at our church. We do marriage mentoring in relationships that we pour into and I you know honestly I can tell you. Personal experience is buying into into the lie of sex before marriage doing it my way versus God's way there there is a lot of psychological and also physical damage image. That are a result of that enemy from you know people that just did not want to wait for marriage to God help us. You know of of kids getting abused or or an incident that somebody had the rights taken away or they were molested or they were attacked. You know in college or something like that and these are things that you know we sit there and we cheapen cheapen wait and we wonder like you even suggest pornography like I don't even need to go into the statistics I mean you can go out there and you can look at the most you know. a cultural statistics and or or Biblical statistics. But you know whether you're looking at mainstream or whether you're looking at you know religious background the all of the studies affirm absolutely that you know pornography is a into intimacy destroyer and and so there's a I think even a mainstream movie that Scarlett Johansson is in an effort the gentleman but just the the facts of how bad pornography destroys intimacy and. That's you know we're sitting there saying we'll okay but where do you. Where do you stop in like for you? The Listener. Listen if you're sitting there saying well you know I'm in a loveless or a lack of physical relationship right now with marriage so pornography is my justification. You can't justify that as a Christian and the let alone if you're sitting there telling me that I don't have intimacy anymore my relationship but then you're sitting there telling Lanson that you're justifying pornography pornography. The reason you don't have intimacy in your relationship is because that graffiti has stolen intimacy from your relationship and to have these AH honest questions okay. So what we permit we promote what we promote we permit and trying to have the influence of the spirit of those around us now all of a sudden therefore sitting there saying that's okay to our kids got help us that we're doing that to our daughters. Were doing that to our sons. You know I can tell you one friend whose mom was. It was very liberal about these is still having relationship issues. And he's in his fifties right now of trust of intimacy and all that and it's just because of these things that we don't look about long term consequences to living our way versus God's way and so you know like you said Lance I got way off into a rabbit hole but pulling it back you know. There's a way that God wants to live to pursue intimacy to pursue sexual relations and that's in a covenant marriage between one man one woman and that's not only biblical but that is so true and so many ways
Sharper than any Two-Edged Sword (Hebrews 4:12)

"Deuteronomy says, a choice that we can make to obey or not to obey to obey means blessing and life not to obey, means death and Deuteronomy chapter thirty, verse twenty nine says, I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses, choose life so that you and your descendants may live. Now, from my own perspective, this idea of choosing to obey the law is difficult because I have been taught, and I believe that we are sinners who are completely dependent on God's grace. We can try to obey the law and here we're talking about God's law, not secular laws because we definitely have the power to choose or to choose to obey or disobey secular laws. But what we're talking about today are God's laws, and we are sinful humans who don't often succeed in choosing to obey God's laws because we do have that sinful nature within ourselves, and we don't often succeed, which means that we will always fail when we choose the law and attempt to do it ourselves. So for more explanation on that Schiffer, excuse me. Schiffer decker rights are passage for today doesn't seem to agree. Surely this commandment that I am commanding you today is not too hard for you, nor is it too far away. It is not in heaven that you should say, who will go up to heaven for us and get it for us so that we may hear an observant, neither it is beyond the sea that you should say, who will cross the other side of the sea for us and get it for us so that we may hear it an observant? No, the word is very near to you. It is in your mouth and in your heart for you to observe. And again, that's Deuteronomy thirty, eleven through fourteen which we just read this passage. Schiffer decker says, echoes the chamois that's the prayer that observant Jews pray twice daily, which begins with this well known passage from Deuteronomy six hero Israel, the Lord is our God. The Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul with all. Your might keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart, recite them to your children and talk about them when you at home, and when you are away when you lie down and when you rise. The word, the commandments of God are to be in the Israelites hearts and on their lips according to the Shimaa they are to memorize them, recite them, talk about them daily. So later in Deuteronomy, when Moses assures the Israelites that the word is very near to you, it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to observe it would seem to be a direct result of obeying the previous command. But the thing is she continues that the Israelites do not did not obey that command. This latter part of Deuteronomy knows of the exile and understands it as a punishment for disobedience. It is because they abandoned the covenant of the Lord, they turned and served other gods. The Lord routed them from their land in anger fury, and great wrath and cast them into another land. That's from Deuteronomy chapter twenty nine. She asked. So if the Israelites can't obey the commandments of God at the beginning of Deuteronomy, when God calls them to love him, what makes them think they can do? So at the end of the book when they've been exiled, when they've been when they felt abandoned. And the answer there, she says, because God promises that they will, the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, so that you will love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. In order that you may live Deuteronomy thirty first six and this idea of God's circumcising, our hearts might sound a little bit strange. I mean, we don't often think of circumcision and hearts, but of course it's not literal. It's more of a metaphor, and it means that if the Israelites cannot love God with all their heart and their soul than God will make it possible for them to do so God will circumcise their hearts in that God will remove their disobedience and there calloused disregard for God's covenant so that they might indeed love God and thereby live. So it's God's work, not ours that enables us to obey the law and this isn't an isolated reference Schiffer decker makes reference to other places in the Old Testament with similar idea. Ios. For instance, Ezekiel speaks of God giving Israel Newhart..
