Expect Great Things From God: But Know What To Expect !:  Expect Great Things From God: But Know What To Expect ! Weimar Institute 10-20-06 xxxxx:  xxxxx Poodle in the Microwave Story What Is An Urban Legend?:  What Is An Urban Legend? Often certain tales become popular and widespread. They are repeated as factual when the storyteller really has no direct knowledge to back it up; he or she has heard the story secondhand, assumed it to be true and passed it on. That's the defining characteristic of urban legends. Elements of the story may be true or it may be conceivable that the story is true but it is not based on actual and verifiable events. This tends to make the story more believable and intriguing and lends to its acceptance as truth. This is what Jesus called “the traditions of men” Questions To Ponder!:  Questions To Ponder! 1) Would you like to be like Jesus disciples? 2) Were the disciples under the spell of an “urban legend”? (A.K.A. the “the teachings or traditions of men”) Peter Praised:  Peter Praised Matt 16: 15 –17 “He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.” Peter Rebuked:  Peter Rebuked Matt 16: 21-23 “.. From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. “Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”   More of the Disciples Rebuked!:  More of the Disciples Rebuked! Luke 24:25 “Then He said to them, ‘O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?’ And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.” The Disciples Expected Great Things From God But They Didn’t Expect The Right Things!:  The Disciples Expected Great Things From God But They Didn’t Expect The Right Things! Messiah’s kingdom would be earthy. Those with worldly wealth and influence would have highest place. (Matt 19:21-30, Mark 10:23-26, Matt 20:20-27) Jews to have world dominance (Acts 1:6) Kingdom would be immediate (Luke 19:11) Messiah would be eternal king – Therefore Their Jesus could never die! (Matt 16:21-23) The resurrection was inconceivable because they couldn’t accept the idea of His Death And as a result of all the above, they did not understand the mission and person of Jesus! xxxx:  xxxx Go TO Acts 1:3-9 Focus on verse 6 What Did They Get Right?:  What Did They Get Right? They knew Jesus was the Messiah (Matt 16, John 1,8) They knew the time had been fulfilled (Dan 9 & Mark 1:15) They even preached the correct message! Matt 10:5-7 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Even after 3 years with Jesus and 40 days with him after resurrection, they still didn’t understand what they had been preaching! Or the nature of the work Jesus was trying to do in them and through them When Did They Finally Get It?:  When Did They Finally Get It? ….The Holy Spirit which descended on the day of Pentecost carried the minds of the disciples from the earthly sanctuary to the heavenly, where Jesus had entered by His own blood, to shed upon His disciples the benefits of His atonement. … The heavenly sanctuary had taken the place of the earthly, yet (the Jews) had no knowledge of the change. Therefore they could not be benefited by the mediation of Christ in the holy place. {EW 259.1} Even Jesus himself after the resurrection could not make them understand without the aid of the Holy Spirit The Holy Spirit:  The Holy Spirit The Holy Spirit was still just a promise until Pentecost. It was not given in it’s fullness yet–John 7:39 (Go To) Jesus entered the Sanctuary in heaven and opened a new and living way Heb 9 The Promise of the Holy spirit is the “New Covenant” - Jesus promised to disciples in John 14, 15, 16, Luke 24, Acts 1, etc… This was the same promise made to and through Adam, Abraham, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Isaiah, and other Old Testament prophets (Jer 31:33-34) tie to HS being teacher that leads into all truth Is It Possible That We Too Could Preach Present Truth But Still Be Expecting The Wrong Things?:  Is It Possible That We Too Could Preach Present Truth But Still Be Expecting The Wrong Things? We know the time of prophecy is fulfilled 2300 days – Dan 8:14 We know the hour of judgment is come – Rev 14:7 We know we are in the “Day of Atonement” Book of Hebrews We believe that Jesus is the Messiah and are correctly preaching His soon return But is it possible that the delay of Jesus 2nd coming has been caused by us? Because we don’t expect the right things? If So, Why Don’t We Get it?:  If So, Why Don’t We Get it? What finally made the difference for the disciples? The reception of the Holy Spirit but it was not available to them until Pentecost. They had an excuse. Do we have and excuse? Is the full power of The Holy Spirit still available to us as it was to the disciples? Holy Spirit Received According To The Desire And Faith Exercised:  Holy Spirit Received According To The Desire And Faith Exercised Christ has promised the gift of the Holy Spirit to His church, and the promise belongs to us as much as to the first disciples. We should pray as earnestly for the descent of the Holy Spirit as the disciples prayed on the day of Pentecost. If they needed it at that time, we need it more today. {FLB 53} Holy Spirit Received According To The Desire And Faith Exercised:  Holy Spirit Received According To The Desire And Faith Exercised The measure of the Holy Spirit we receive will be proportioned to the measure of our desire and the faith exercised for it, and the use we shall make of the light and knowledge that shall be given to us. {FLB 53} So, What Is The Problem?:  So, What Is The Problem? Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: Explain Jones and Wagoner:  Explain Jones and Wagoner Explain that fight in 1880’s was over the law in Galatians – what its function was – the brethern were trying to get God’s power to fulfill it rather than allowing it to convict them of there wretchedness – this ties to Laodecian messge – 2 slides from now The HS / Jesus scared the bretrhern because they didn’t know what to expect and they resisted Him – this comes just before The Battle Over The Law In Galatians!:  The Battle Over The Law In Galatians! "The law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith" (Gal. 3:24). … The law reveals sin to us, and causes us to feel our need of Christ and to flee unto Him for pardon and peace… {1SM 234.6} The Battle Over The Law In Galatians:  The Battle Over The Law In Galatians An unwillingness to yield up preconceived opinions, and to accept this truth, lay at the foundation of a large share of the opposition manifested at Minneapolis against the Lord's message through Brethren {E.J.} Waggoner and {A.T.} Jones. {1SM 234.6} (Preconceived opinions about the law – trynig to use God’s power to enable them to keep the law rather than confessing they can’t unless crucified with and in Christ – so it is not them but Christ that does it – this is the Urban legend that stopped the latter rain and continues to delay the 2nd coming of Jesus) The Battle Over The Law In Galatians!:  The Battle Over The Law In Galatians! By exciting that opposition Satan succeeded in shutting away from our people, in a great measure, the special power of the Holy Spirit that God longed to impart to them….The light that is to lighten the whole earth with its glory was resisted, and by the action of our own brethren has been in a great degree kept away from the world. {1SM 234.6} Cannot Use God’s Power to Fix Ourselves! :  Many people make a mistake here. … they propose to take it (The Holy Spirit’s Power) from (Jesus) and apply it to themselves. They soon become quiet well satisfied that they are righteous….. And it is themselves who are doing it. Explain Jones analogy of Christ not being a resovoir to dip the power out of to apply to self The Third Angel’s Message, Sermons from 1895 GC, A.T. Jones, pg 219 Cannot Use God’s Power to Fix Ourselves! Slide23:  We Cannot “Use” The Holy Spirit To Build Ourselves Up! “We cannot use the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is to use us. Through the Spirit God works in His people "to will and to do of His good pleasure." Phil. 2:13. But many will not submit to this. They want to manage themselves. This is why they do not receive the heavenly gift.” {GW 285.1} XXXX:  XXXX Mentinon that trying to use God’s power to fix ourselves up is like putting lipsitck and jewlry on a pig – it is still a pig when it is done Accepting Our Wretchedness Is A Where it All Starts!:  Accepting Our Wretchedness Is A Where it All Starts! The closer you come to Jesus, the more faulty you will appear in your own eyes; for your vision will be clearer, and your imperfections will be seen in broad and distinct contrast to His perfect nature. This is evidence that Satan's delusions have lost their power; that the vivifying influence of the Spirit of God is arousing you. {SC 64.2} Slide26:  …. if we do not see our own moral deformity, it is unmistakable evidence that we have not had a view of the beauty and excellence of Christ. {SC 65.1} We Still Are Clinging to Urban Legends!:  We Still Are Clinging to Urban Legends! Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of justification by faith is the third angel's message, and I have answered, "It is the third angel's message in verity.“ {LDE 199.4} We still have not received this message! Expect Great Things From God!:  Expect Great Things From God! The last message of mercy to be given to the world is a revelation of His character of love. The children of God are to manifest His glory. In their own life and character they are to reveal what the grace of God has done for them. COL 415, 416 (1900). {LDE 200.4} Closing notes:  Closing notes Glass of sludge IF I be lifted up Don’t try to use him to fulfill the law, just let him clean the sludge out Ethiopian can’t change his spots – we cannot change our hearts – we can only choose to let Him (HS) subdue our hearts – must die daily must be born again daily Need fresh baptism of HS daily We as individuals are also the temple of God and if we don’t understand the process we be frightened of the HS and drive hm off – let Him have His ways Trying To Use The Holy Spirit To Make Ourselves Righteous Is Like Putting Lipstick On a Pig!:  Trying To Use The Holy Spirit To Make Ourselves Righteous Is Like Putting Lipstick On a Pig!
