Series: “The Dark Prince”
When the Devil Has His Day
Dr. Jeffrey Seif takes readers through Bible texts that speak about the devil. Introductory in nature, The Dark Prince gives individuals a behind-the-scenes look at Evil’s workings at the ragged edge of human history, and its ultimate uprooting when Christ returns.
Episode: “The Ruler of this World”
We follow along as Isaiah describes the “ruler of this world,” Satan, through an actual ruler of the ancient world, and as Matthew relates how Satan once offered Jesus the kingdoms of this world. The temptations that the Lord avoided are ones that we should avoid, as well.

Caption transcript for The Dark Prince: “The Ruler of this World” (3/10)

  • 00:38 HOW YOU HAVE FALLEN FROM HEAVEN LUCIFER, SON OF THE MORNING,
  • 00:42 YOU SHALL BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL TO THE DEPTHS OF THE PIT
  • 00:47 AND ALL WHO GAZE UPON YOU WILL WONDER,
  • 00:50 "IS THIS THE MAN THAT MADE THE NATIONS TREMBLE?"
  • 00:59 WHEN THE DEVIL HAS HIS DAY
  • 01:03 A HEARTY SHALOM TO ALL OF YOU.
  • 01:06 WELCOME AGAIN TO ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 01:09 JEFFREY SEIF HERE, I'M THRILLED YOU'RE GOING ON THE JOURNEY WITH US.
  • 01:14 AND IN THIS PROGRAM WE'RE TAKING A JOURNEY TO THE BIBLICAL WORD;
  • 01:18 WE'RE LOOKING AT THE PERSON OF THE DEVIL.
  • 01:21 I'M NOT PARTICULARLY ANXIOUS TO BE HIS PR MAN,
  • 01:24 HE GETS A LOT OF PRESS,
  • 01:26 BUT I WANT TO SEE WHAT'S CHURNED UP IN THE BIBLICAL PRESS.
  • 01:29 ISAIAH TELLS AN INTERESTING STORY WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT
  • 01:32 AND PAUL WILBUR'S GOING TO BE JOINING US TO HELP TELL THAT STORY.
  • 01:42 EVIL INCARNATE WAS THIS KING OF BABYLON,
  • 01:45 AN ABUSER, AN OPPRESSOR TO ALL.
  • 01:48 HIS POWER WAS KNOWN AMONG ALL NATIONS.
  • 01:52 "THOU HAST SAID IN THINE HEART, 'I WILL ASCEND TO HEAVEN,'
  • 01:57 'I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD.'
  • 02:02 'I WILL SIT ALSO UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH.'
  • 02:07 'I WILL ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS.'
  • 02:11 AN EVIL, DARK SPIRIT SPEAKS FROM THY MOUTH."
  • 02:18 'I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH'
  • 02:25 IN SCRIPTURE WE'RE BECKONED TO QUOTE:
  • 02:29 "NOT BE IGNORANT OF SATAN'S DESIGNS",
  • 02:33 BUT THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS IN SO MANY WAYS WE ARE.
  • 02:37 HE WHO HAS BROUGHT SUCH WRECKAGE TO PLANET EARTH,
  • 02:41 COMING TO YOU FROM THESE RUINS OF A BYGONE ERA
  • 02:45 I'M REMINDED OF THE FACT THAT ON PLANET EARTH THERE IS RUIN AND DEVASTATION
  • 02:50 AND IN AS MUCH AS THE LORD IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER,
  • 02:55 SO IT IS HIS ARCH RIVAL, THE NEMESIS OF THE HUMANS OF THE SPECIES, THE DEVIL HIMSELF
  • 03:01 SIMILARLY IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY BUT NOT FOREVER.
  • 03:09 HE WILL GO OUT INTO THE FUTURE BUT THEN HE'LL HAVE HIS DAY
  • 03:14 WHEN THE LORD RETURNS AND THOSE OF US WHO HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN TO HIM WILL BE WITH HIM
  • 03:20 TO THEN RULE AND REIGN IN A TRIUMPHANT CLASH OF TITANIC FORCES WHERE THE DEVIL AND HIS HOARDS ARE FINALLY BESTED.
  • 03:30 WHO IS THIS PERSON?
  • 03:32 WHO IS THIS EVIL PERSON?
  • 03:36 WHO IS THIS IN SCRIPTURE THAT DARE TO DEFY GOD HIMSELF?
  • 03:42 THE HEBREW PROPHETS GAVE VOICE TO HIM, DIFFERENT ONES DID IN DIFFERENT WAYS
  • 03:46 AND I'D LIKE YOU TO LOOK AT ISAIAH, ARGUABLY ONE OF THE MORE FAMOUS OF THE JEWISH PROPHETS.
  • 03:54 HE HIMSELF IS PROPHESYING ABOUT AN ANTI-SEMITIC KING.
  • 03:59 OH, THE BABYLONIANS WERE TOOLS IN THE HAND OF THE EVIL ONE TO PILLAGE AND PLUNDER THE HEBREW PEOPLE.
  • 04:09 INSTRUMENTS THOUGH THEY WERE, TRUTH BE KNOWN
  • 04:13 IT WAS GOD WHO WAS ALLOWING THEM TO TAKE CARE OF THAT BUSINESS
  • 04:17 AS THE SPIRITS DRIVING THEM WERE DISPATCHED TO ATTEND TO IT.
  • 04:21 THE LORD ALLOWED IT.
  • 04:23 AND THE LORD INFORMED, TRUTH BE KNOWN, THAT IT'S SATAN WHO DRIVES THE ENGINES OF RAGE
  • 04:31 AND FERMENTING DISCONTENT THAT WAGE WAR AGAINST GODLY PEOPLE.
  • 04:36 AND THE PROPHET HERE SEES A TIME IN CHAPTER 14, VERSE 12
  • 04:41 WHEN HE, "THE MORNING STAR" WILL GET HIS JUST DESERVE.
  • 04:47 WE'RE TOLD IN VERSE 12,
  • 04:50 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:58 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:05 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:11 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:23 IF THERE'S ANYONE THAT'S EVER BEEN SPOILED, DESPOILED
  • 05:27 WHERE YOU'VE BEEN ABUSED, YOU'VE BEEN MALIGNED, YOU'VE BEEN HURT,
  • 05:32 YOU'VE BEEN THE OBJECT OF ENERGIES BENT ON YOUR DEMISE;
  • 05:36 YOU'VE BEEN OPPRESSED,REPRESSED, SUPPRESSED, DEPRESSED...CALL IT WHAT YOU WILL.
  • 05:44 FOR THOSE OF US THAT EXPERIENCE THE WARFARE THAT COMES...
  • 05:48 AND BY THE WAY I BELIEVE THAT IF WE WANT TO SERVE THE LORD THAT HELL HAS AN ASSIGNMENT AGAINST US.
  • 05:55 BUT FOR ALL WE DO THIS WORD'S FOR YOU AND THAT IS THAT THE DEVIL WILL HAVE HIS DAY.
  • 06:04 THIS HEBREW PROPHET TELLS US THAT LUCIFER, MORNING STAR THAT IS, LIGHT BEARER,
  • 06:11 THAT HE WHO DECEIVES THROUGH TRICKERY AND HE WHO BRINGS RUIN WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE HIS DAY.
  • 06:19 THE DEVIL WILL HAVE HIS DAY WILL HE NOT?
  • 06:22 AND THE DARK PRINCE WILL BE BESTED BY THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS.
  • 06:32 THE LORD'S DUAL WITH THE DEVIL WAS NOTHING NEW.
  • 06:35 THE PERVERSE SPIRIT OF ANTI-CHRIST WAS RESOLUTE AS IT IS YET TODAY.
  • 06:47 THIS IS MY KINGDOM
  • 07:01 JUST BOW DOWN
  • 07:03 AND WORSHIP ME
  • 07:13 I'M CERTAIN THAT THEY KNEW EACH OTHER BEFORE TIME.
  • 07:17 GOD THE MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH DIDN'T JUST MAKE HEAVEN AND EARTH
  • 07:22 AND HE WASN'T ALONE IN THE MAKING.
  • 07:25 FOR THAT MATTER JOHN TELLS US THAT YESHUA WAS THERE...
  • 07:36 BUT HE WASN'T THE ONLY ONE THERE IN THE BEGINNING.
  • 07:40 BIBLE READERS ARE INFORMED THAT THERE WAS "HASATAN ", THE DEVIL
  • 07:47 WHO AS IT TURNS OUT IN THE BIBLICAL DRAMA BECOMES YESHUA'S ARCH ENEMY AND RIVAL...
  • 07:52 RIVAL BECAUSE IN THE GOSPEL YESHUA, JESUS, IS REFERRED TO AS THE PRINCE OF PEACE.
  • 08:00 BUT THERE'S ANOTHER ONE...
  • 08:02 THE DARK PRINCE WHO TRUTH BE KNOWN WAS NO PRINCE AT ALL,
  • 08:07 BUT IN HIS OWN RIGHT HE WAS SOMETHING.
  • 08:12 IN EZEKIEL CHAPTER 28 THE HEBREW PROPHET GIVES VOICE TO THIS PERSON
  • 08:17 DESCRIBING HIS AS ONCE UPON A TIME IN A PLACE BEFORE TIME
  • 08:21 HE WAS IN EDEN WITH GOD ACCORDING TO EZEKIEL.
  • 08:27 AND NOT ONLY THAT
  • 08:28 HE HARKS TO THE IMAGE OF THE "BET HA'MIKDOSH"
  • 08:32 AND HE SPEAKS OF THE "ARON KODESH",
  • 08:34 HE SPEAKS OF THE "HOLY OF HOLIES"
  • 08:37 AND THERE IS THE MERCY SEAT
  • 08:39 AND HE REFERS TO THIS ANGELIC BEING AS A COVERING CHERUB.
  • 08:46 IN THE HEBREW BIBLE THERE'S A HIERARCHY OF ANGELS
  • 08:49 AND THIS PERSON WAS AT THE TOP OF THE PACK.
  • 08:53 BUT HE WASN'T SATISFIED,
  • 08:55 HE WANTED MORE AND EZEKIEL TELLS US THE RESULT IS THAT HE WHO WAS IN EDEN WITH GOD
  • 09:03 AND WHO'S DESCRIBED THEN AS BEING ON THE MOUNTAIN OF GOD IS THEN THROWN OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 09:11 HOW BAZAAR IT IS THEN THAT WHEN WE OPEN UP THE PAGES OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 09:17 YESHUA GOES UP TO A MOUNTAIN AND THERE ENSUES A BATTLE ROYAL BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM.
  • 09:26 THESE WHO ACCORDING TO THE BIBLICAL TEXTS KNEW EACH OTHER BEFORE TIME NOW MEET IN TIME FOR A BATTLE ROYAL.
  • 09:36 AND WE KNOW THAT IN THE BEGINNING OF TIME ADAM AND CHAV VAH WERE PLACED "GAN EDEN".
  • 09:43 TRAGICALLY, HOWEVER, CHAV VA AND THEN ADAM WERE BESTED BY THE DARKER, BY THE QUISITIVE SIDES
  • 09:52 OF THEIR OWN NATURE TO HAVE, TO HAVE, TO HAVE...AND THEY WERE THROWN OUT OF PARADISE.
  • 09:58 IN AS MUCH AS "HASATAN", WE'RE TOLD IN THE HEBREW BIBLE, SIMILARLY WANTED MORE
  • 10:05 AND HE WAS THROWN OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF GOD
  • 10:08 AND NOW YESHUA AND THIS PERSONALITY MEET FOR A WRESTLING MATCH.
  • 10:14 HOW PERVERSE IT IS THAT "HASATAN" SAYS TO HIM
  • 10:17 "WORSHIP ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD,"
  • 10:21 "THE POWER, THE GLORY, THE RICHES, THE POMP..."
  • 10:26 EVERYTHING THAT HE WANTED, THAT WHICH WAS HIS UNDOING.
  • 10:31 HE THEN PRESENTS TO YESHUA IN THE NEW TESTAMENT TO BE HIS UNDOING AS WELL.
  • 10:38 HAPPILY YESHUA DRAWS A LINE IN THE SAND AND SAYS, "NO".
  • 10:44 THERE'S A STRUGGLE THAT ENSUES AS YOU KNOW WHEN YOU READ THE GOSPEL ACCOUNTS.
  • 10:49 WEARIED AS HE WAS WITH FASTING,
  • 10:52 TEMPTED AS HE WAS BY THE TEMPTATION, STILL WE'RE TOLD IN THE GOSPEL,
  • 11:08 AND SO IT IS THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES...GOOD AND EVIL.
  • 11:13 THANK GOD FOR GOD, HOWEVER,
  • 11:14 CAUSE WE KNOW THAT HE ULTIMATELY WINS.

  • 13:49 THE OFFER ON THIS TV PROGRAM IS A SERIES THAT I DID
  • 13:52 SOON AS I CAME ON BOARD HERE AT ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS,
  • 13:55 "THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ISAIAH", ITS GOOD NEWS.
  • 13:58 AND NOW FOR SOME BAD NEWS AS WE LOOK AT THE DEVIL AND HOW THE DEVIL HAS HIS DAY.
  • 14:11 OH LUCIFER, SON OF THE MORNING, THOU ART CUT DOWN TO THE GROUND.
  • 14:18 THY POMP IS BROUGHT DOWN TO THE GRAVE,
  • 14:22 THE WORM IS SPREAD UNTO THEE
  • 14:24 AND THE WORMS COVER THEE.
  • 14:29 "GET UP" >>THEY THAT SEE THEE SHALL SAY,
  • 14:33 "IS THIS THE MAN THAT MADE THE EARTH TO TREMBLE, THAT DID SHAKE KINGDOMS?"
  • 14:38 "GET UP!"
  • 14:41 HE THAT HATH EARS TO HEAR LET HIM HEAR.
  • 14:48 IN REVELATION JOHN EXALTS, QUOTE, "BABYLON THE GREAT HAS FALLEN".
  • 14:56 TRUTH IS THAT BABYLON HAS BEEN FINISHED FOR A LONG TIME.
  • 15:00 BUT THE SPIRIT THAT DROVE THE BABYLONIANS AND OTHERS HAS BEEN AROUND THROUGH TIME IMMEMORIAL.
  • 15:08 IN ISAIAH, CHAPTER 14 AS YOU MIGHT RECALL FROM OUR INITIAL SEGMENTS
  • 15:14 WE LEARNED THAT THE DEVIL IS REPRESENTED, LUCIFER THAT IS,
  • 15:18 IN THE PERSON OF THE BABYLONIAN MONARCH
  • 15:22 AND HOW THE PROPHET ISAIAH GIVES VOICE TO HIS DEMISE.
  • 15:26 FOR THOSE OF US THAT ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT DAY WHEN RIGHTEOUSNESS REIGNS SUPREME
  • 15:33 ...FOR THOSE OF US THAT ARE LOOKING FOR THE WICKED TO GET THEIR JUST DESERVE
  • 15:38 WE DO WELL TO LOOK AT WHAT THE PROPHET SAYS AS WE CONTINUE IN ISAIAH, CHAPTER 14.
  • 15:45 SPEAKING OF THE DEVIL IN VERSE 13,
  • 15:51 ...YES..."AND I'LL BE LIKE GOD"
  • 15:53 ...OR SO YOU INTENDED
  • 15:55 AND SO IT SEEMED FOR A SEASON
  • 15:58 AS YOU RAN ROUGH SHOD OVER PLANET EARTH
  • 16:01 AND EVEN HAD THE "CHUTZPAH", TO USE A JEWISH TERM,
  • 16:06 EVEN HAD THE GUTS TO TAKE ON THE LORD HIMSELF IN A PREVIOUS SEGMENT,
  • 16:13 THAT CONTEST THERE WHERE SATAN AND YESHUA WENT AT IT TOE TO TOE QUOTING SCRIPTURE ALL THE WHILE.
  • 16:21 BUT HE DIDN'T GET THE BETTER OF THE LORD, NOW DID HE?
  • 16:24 FINALLY THAT WICKED PERSON IS GOING TO HAVE HIS DAY.
  • 16:30 THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE HUMBLE WILL BE EXALTED AND THAT THE EXALTED WILL BE HUMBLED.
  • 16:39 AND HE WHO IS THE QUINTESSENTIAL EXALTED,
  • 16:43 THAT IS, HE WHO TRIED TO USURP POWER THAT WAS NOT HIS OWN IS GOING TO BE BROUGHT DOWN.
  • 16:53 IN VERSE 13
  • 16:59 HE WANTED TO BE NOT JUST GOD BUT EVEN GREATER
  • 17:03 AND SO HE INTENDED IN HIS ARROGANCE.
  • 17:07 WE'RE TOLD IN VERSE 17,
  • 17:12 AND YES I'M COMING TO YOU FROM RUINS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, IN ISRAEL.
  • 17:19 THESE STONES ROUND ABOUT HAVE BEEN FELLED
  • 17:22 AND FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION COME INDIVIDUALS
  • 17:27 WHO RAVAGE THE EARTH DRIVEN BY THIS, THE PRINCE AND POWER OF DARKNESS.
  • 17:54 HE SAYS THAT HE WILL BRING IT DOWN.
  • 17:57 AS WE BRING THIS PROGRAM DOWN, AS WE GET TO THE END, CLOSE BUT NOT YET,
  • 18:05 LET ME REMIND YOU THAT THERE'S SOMEONE THAT CAN AFFECT A VICTORY IN YOUR LIFE
  • 18:11 IF THE OPPRESSOR IS RAISING HIS HOARY HEAD.
  • 18:15 I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THE REASON WHY THE SON OF GOD CAME ACCORDING TO THE APOSTLE JOHN
  • 18:21 WAS TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.
  • 18:24 AND DESTROY HE WILL FINALLY AND FULLY AT THE RAGGED EDGE OF HISTORY WHEN THE LORD RETURNS.
  • 18:31 BUT IN ADVANCE OF THAT FOR YOU NOW THERE'S AN OFFER ON THE TABLE
  • 18:36 WHERE YOU CAN HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT ABUNDANTLY
  • 18:39 AND YOU CAN HAVE YOUR LIFE BUILT UP FROM THE RUINS OF A FORMER ERA.
  • 18:48 THE PSALMIST SAYS,
  • 18:49 "LET THOSE WHO SEEK THEE REJOICE"
  • 18:52 AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE DO NOW AS WE JOIN PAUL WILBUR IN PRAISE FROM ISRAEL.

  • 21:52 HALLELUJAH!!!
  • 22:00 PAUL WILBUR IS ONE OF OUR CULTURE'S PREMIER PRAISE AND WORSHIP LEADERS
  • 22:05 AND WE HAVE HIM HERE. LOVE IT!
  • 22:09 LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING.
  • 22:10 I'VE HEARD IT SAID THAT OUR ATTITUDE DETERMINES OUR ALTITUDE,
  • 22:14 THAT WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT IN LIFE
  • 22:16 IS MORE ABOUT OUR ATTITUDE THAN OUR CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 22:18 WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?
  • 22:20 I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF TRUTH IN THAT JEFF.
  • 22:22 YOU KNOW PROVERBS SAYS THAT AS A MAN THINKS WITHIN HIMSELF SO IS HE.
  • 22:27 AND IT ALSO TELLS US THAT OUT OF THE HEART
  • 22:30 ISSUES FORTH THE VERY ISSUES OF THE IMPORTANT THINGS IN OUR LIVES.
  • 22:34 HOW DO WE CHANGE THE WAY WE THINK?
  • 22:37 HOW DO WE CHANGE THE WAY OUR HEART THINKS?
  • 22:39 IT'S BY SPENDING OUR TIME IN THIS BOOK
  • 22:42 WHICH IS KIND OF LIKE A DOWNLOAD,
  • 22:44 A SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD FOR US THAT CAN
  • 22:47 CHANGE ALL OF THE INFORMATION THAT WE'VE HAD BEFORE.
  • 22:51 AND ONE GREAT WAY OF GETTING THAT IN IS BY SINGING IT.
  • 22:55 KING DAVID WAS A MAN AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART.
  • 22:58 WE HAVE ALL OF HIS WRITINGS.
  • 23:01 IN FACT HIS WORDS WERE SO IMPORTANT
  • 23:04 THAT WHEN HE BECAME THE KING HE HAD SCRIBES
  • 23:07 THAT FOLLOWED HIM AROUND
  • 23:09 AND WHEN HE PLAYED HIS HARP AND WHEN HE SANG HIS PRAISES,
  • 23:12 HIS GRATEFULNESS TO GOD
  • 23:14 THEY WROTE IT DOWN AND SO WE HAVE IT TODAY.
  • 23:17 WE CAN ACTUALLY SING THE HIGH PRAISES OF GOD THAT DAVID SPOKE BACK IN HIS DAY.
  • 23:22 AND IT CHANGES THE WAY WE THINK.
  • 23:24 PEOPLE...YOU KNOW THERE'S 168 HOURS IN A WEEK.
  • 23:27 PEOPLE SPEND TIMES DESPAIRING; DISORIENTED...
  • 23:31 WE DO NEED TO GET A LITTLE A BIT OF POSITIVE BIBLICAL STUFF THERE.
  • 23:33 WORSHIP MUSIC FACILITATES THAT DOESN'T IT?
  • 23:36 IT'S AWESOME.
  • 23:37 IN FACT I KNOW IT FROM MY OWN LIFE,
  • 23:39 I'VE DONE EXPERIMENTS ON MYSELF
  • 23:42 AND HERE'S ONE OF THEM.
  • 23:44 SOMETIMES I'VE FOUND MYSELF TO BE AN AGGRESSIVE PERSON BEHIND THE WHEEL,
  • 23:49 JUST THE FRUSTRATION.
  • 23:50 NO... >>WELL...IT HAPPENS.
  • 23:52 AND IF I'M LISTENING TO THE NEWS,
  • 23:55 I'M LISTENING TO TALK RADIO,
  • 23:56 IT JUST SEEMS TO FEED THAT
  • 23:58 BUT IF I'LL PUT IN A GOOD PRAISE AND WORSHIP CD
  • 24:02 I'M CHANGING ATMOSPHERE. >>IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 24:04 IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 24:06 AND WE NEED A GOOD INTERNAL ATMOSPHERE
  • 24:08 BECAUSE WE NEED TO BE ABOUT THE BUSINESS OF SERVING THE LORD.
  • 24:12 THE LATE ZOLA LEVITT IS GOING TO TALK TO US NOW
  • 24:14 ABOUT HOW WE ARE GOING TO BE EVALUATED ON THE BASIS OF WHAT WE'VE DOWN WITH OUR LIFE.
  • 24:20 NOT TO DETERMINE WHETHER WE ARE SAVED OR AREN'T SAVED,
  • 24:22 JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR THAT BUT WHAT WE DO WITH OUR LIFE
  • 24:25 FACTORS INTO THE WAY WE'RE GOING TO BE PERCEIVED AT THE RAGGED EDGE.
  • 24:29 HERE'S ZOLA.
  • 24:32 WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN WHAT'LL HAPPEN THEN?
  • 24:34 THE FIRST THING WILL BE THE JUDGMENT OF OUR WORKS.
  • 24:38 YOU KNOW THE JUDGMENT OF OUR SINS
  • 24:39 WAS ACCOMPLISHED AT THE CROSS.
  • 24:41 THEY WERE ALL PAID FOR.
  • 24:42 WE'RE NOT GOING TO ACCOUNT FOR OUR SINS.
  • 24:44 AS THE LORD SAID...I'LL REMEMBER THEIRSIN NO MORE.
  • 24:49 A GOOD BIBLE TEACHER TOLD ME
  • 24:52 "I'VE STOPPED SAYING TO GOD -
  • 24:53 "I'LL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN GOD" -
  • 24:55 BECAUSE HE'LL SAY, "DO WHAT AGAIN?" "I DON'T REMEMBER"
  • 25:01 THAT'S HIS POSITION, THAT'S WHAT HE SAYS HIS POSITION IS.
  • 25:04 NOW THAT'S AS TO OUR SINS.
  • 25:06 NOW OUR WORKS ARE SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 25:08 CHRISTIANS AREN'T SAVED SIMPLY TO STAND AROUND AS MUSEUM PIECES,
  • 25:13 WE'RE CALLED "WORKER'S IN A FIELD", "SOLDIERS IN AN ARMY".
  • 25:17 WE HAVE RESPONSIBILITIES, WE HAVE WORKS TO DO.
  • 25:20 EVEN IF WE HAVE THE SMALLEST, SIMPLEST WORK...
  • 25:23 EVERYBODY HAS A GIFT TO ENABLE HIM TO DO HIS WORK WHATEVER IT IS.
  • 25:27 IF I TEACH, THEN I GET A GIFT OF TEACHING.
  • 25:29 IF YOU SING, THEN YOU HAVE A GIFT OF SINGING.
  • 25:32 AND SO IT GOES THROUGH THE WHOLE CHURCH,
  • 25:33 THERE'S NO QUESTION OF IT.
  • 25:35 THE LORD THOUGH WILL EXAMINE, "DID WE GO?"
  • 25:38 "DID I GET TO ISRAEL AND STAND ON A MOUNTAIN AND TEACH THIS STUFF OR DID I NOT GO?"
  • 25:43 "DID YOU SING WHEN THEY ASKED YOU TO OR DID YOU NOT SING?"
  • 25:46 AND SO ON AND SO ON...
  • 25:48 INTENSIVELY WE'LL BE EXAMINED AS TO WHETHER OUR WORKS
  • 25:51 ARE OF WOOD, HAY AND STUBBLE ON THE ONE HAND;
  • 25:53 OR THEY'RE GOLD, SILVER AND PRECIOUS STONES ON THE OTHER.
  • 25:56 THAT'S THE FIRST THING THAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN.
  • 26:01 LISTENING TO ZOLA I'M REMINDED OF THE FACT THAT
  • 26:04 WE'RE NOT SAVED BY OUR WORKS
  • 26:06 BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE SHOULDN'T BE DOING THEM.
  • 26:08 WHAT DO YOU THINK?
  • 26:09 ABSOLUTELY.
  • 26:11 PRAISE AND WORSHIP JEFF IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO HERE ON EARTH
  • 26:14 THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING FOR ETERNITY.
  • 26:16 THROUGH THESE DIFFERENT EPISODES HERE
  • 26:19 WE'VE BEEN LOOKING ALL THE WAY FROM THE BOOK OF REVELATION, THE GARDEN OF EDEN,
  • 26:22 INTO THE BOOK OF REVELATION
  • 26:25 WHICH IS NOT ONLY A "NOW" THING BUT ALSO A FUTURE.
  • 26:27 WE SEE IN CHAPTER 15 THERE'S A GREAT THRONG AROUND THE THRONE OF THE LAMB
  • 26:33 AND THEY'RE SINGING SOMETHING.
  • 26:35 WE GET ALL THE WORDS...
  • 26:37 ALL WE NEED TO DO IS SET THAT TO MUSIC
  • 26:39 WHICH BY THE WAY I'VE DONE IN OTHER PROJECTS
  • 26:41 WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO SHARE ON SOME OF OUR PROGRAMS.
  • 26:44 BUT WORSHIP IS ETERNAL AND ITS IMPORTANT FOR US.
  • 26:47 AND YOU DO IT SO WELL
  • 26:49 AND I KNOW YOU'RE BLESSED.
