  • HE IS.
  • 00:03:43.517 --> 00:03:45.819
  • JESUS SAID, "YOU CAN DISCERNTHE METEOROLOGICAL SIGNS,

  • "WHAT IS HAPPENINGIN THE WORLD."
  • 00:03:51.358 --> 00:03:54.295
  • HE SAID, "A WICKED ANDADULTEROUS GENERATION
  • 00:03:54.295 --> 00:03:56.697
  • "SEEKETH AFTER A SIGN.
  • 00:03:56.764 --> 00:03:59.166
  • "AND THERE SHALL NOSIGN BE GIVEN UNTO IT

  • "BUT THE SIGN OFTHE PROPHET JONAH."
  • 00:04:01.669 --> 00:04:03.304
  • AND THE BOOK OF JONAH ISFILLED WITH THE SUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:04:03.971 --> 00:04:07.608
  • THERE WAS A GREAT FISH.
  • 00:04:07.608 --> 00:04:08.876
  • THERE WAS A GOURD.
  • 00:04:08.942 --> 00:04:10.277
  • THERE WAS A WORM.
  • 00:04:10.344 --> 00:04:11.345
  • THERE WAS AN EAST WIND.
  • 00:04:11.412 --> 00:04:13.514
  • ALL OF THATPREPARED BY GOD.
  • 00:04:13.580 --> 00:04:16.583
  • AND THEN THERE WAS
  • 00:04:16.917 --> 00:04:17.818
  • THE REPENTANCE OFAN ENTIRE NATION,
  • 00:04:17.818 --> 00:04:20.220
  • OR AN ENTIRE CITY
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:21.622
  • WITH OVERA MILLION POPULATION.
  • 00:04:21.622 --> 00:04:24.191
  • AND AS SOMEONE HAS SAID,IT REMAINS AN OBJECT OF FAITH
  • 00:04:24.191 --> 00:04:28.762
  • NOT EXPLANATION.
  • 00:04:28.762 --> 00:04:31.265
  • I BELIEVE IT NOT ONLY BECAUSEIT'S IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:04:31.265 --> 00:04:33.334
  • I BELIEVE IT BECAUSEJESUS CONFIRMED IT.
  • 00:04:33.334 --> 00:04:35.402
  • IF IT NEVER HAPPENED ANDJESUS SAID IT HAPPENED,
  • 00:04:35.402 --> 00:04:38.472
  • THEN THAT BRINGS ABOUT
  • 00:04:38.472 --> 00:04:39.907
  • A CREDIBILITY PROBLEMWITH JESUS.
  • 00:04:39.907 --> 00:04:43.043
  • IF YOU BELIEVE JESUS,
  • 00:04:43.043 --> 00:04:44.812
  • YOU MUST BELIEVETHE STORY OF JONAH.
  • 00:04:44.812 --> 00:04:48.248
  • AND THERE'S A TREMENDOUSTRUTHS IN THIS LITTLE BOOK
  • 00:04:48.248 --> 00:04:51.552
  • THAT I WISH I HADTIME TO COVER TONIGHT.
  • 00:04:51.552 --> 00:04:53.420
  • BUT I DON'T HAVETIME FOR ALL OF THEM.
  • 00:04:53.420 --> 00:04:55.723
  • WE GET SO CONCERNED WHENWE COME TO THE BOOK OF JONAH
  • 00:04:55.723 --> 00:04:58.325
  • ABOUT WHAT WAS HAPPENINGTO THE FISH,
  • 00:04:58.325 --> 00:05:00.427
  • THAT WE FORGET ABOUT WHATWAS HAPPENING TO JONAH.
  • 00:05:00.427 --> 00:05:03.163
  • YOU SEE, JONAH WAS TRYINGTO FIND THE WILL OF GOD
  • 00:05:03.163 --> 00:05:05.532
  • FOR HIS LIFE.
  • 00:05:05.532 --> 00:05:07.000
  • NOW GOD'S WORD TOJONAH WAS VERY CLEAR.
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:09.570
  • GOD SAID, "ARISE,GO TO NINEVEH,
  • 00:05:09.570 --> 00:05:12.873
  • "THAT GREAT CITY,AND CRY AGAINST IT
  • 00:05:12.873 --> 00:05:15.576
  • "FOR THEIR WICKEDNESSHAS COME UP BEFORE ME."
  • 00:05:15.576 --> 00:05:18.479
  • NOW JONAH DIDN'T LIKETHAT ORDER FROM GOD.
  • 00:05:18.479 --> 00:05:22.316
  • HE REBELLED AT THE VERY THOUGHTOF GOING TO NINEVEH.
  • 00:05:22.316 --> 00:05:26.653
  • FIRST OF ALL, I DON'T EXPECTHE FOUND MUCH GLAMOUR
  • 00:05:26.653 --> 00:05:29.289
  • IN BEING A PREACHER OF JUDGMENT.
  • 00:05:29.289 --> 00:05:31.525
  • SAYING, "THE JUDGMENT IS GOINGTO FALL ON YOU."
  • 00:05:31.525 --> 00:05:34.228
  • BUT THE SECOND ANDMOST IMPORTANT REASON WAS,
  • 00:05:34.228 --> 00:05:36.897
  • HE DID NOT WANT GODTO SPARE NINEVEH.
  • 00:05:36.897 --> 00:05:40.467
  • THERE'S PROBABLY NEVER BEENA MORE WICKED, A MORE GODLESS,
  • 00:05:40.467 --> 00:05:43.537
  • A MORE IMMORAL,A MORE VIOLENT PEOPLE
  • 00:05:43.537 --> 00:05:46.573
  • THAN THE ASSYRIANS THAT DWELTAT NINEVEH.
  • 00:05:46.573 --> 00:05:50.010
  • HE SAID, "GOD,THEY DESERVE HELL.
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:52.613
  • "GET RID OF THEM!
  • 00:05:52.613 --> 00:05:54.281
  • "KILL 'EM ALL!"
  • 00:05:54.281 --> 00:05:56.383
  • THAT WAS HOW JONAH FELT.
  • 00:05:56.383 --> 00:05:58.619
  • THEY WERE SO WICKED ANDSO AWFUL AND
  • 00:05:58.619 --> 00:06:00.387
  • THEY'D BEEN SO TERRIBLETO HIS OWN PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:00.387 --> 00:06:03.257
  • SO WHEN GOD GAVE THE ORDERFOR HIM TO GO AND
  • 00:06:03.257 --> 00:06:05.259
  • PREACH REPENTANCE IN NINEVEH,IT SAYS THAT JONAH FLED
  • 00:06:05.259 --> 00:06:10.130
  • FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:12.966
  • HE SAID, "I JUST CAN'T DO IT."
  • 00:06:12.966 --> 00:06:15.669
  • HE SAID, "I'M GONNA RUNFROM GOD, I CAN HIDE FROM GOD."
  • 00:06:15.669 --> 00:06:18.572
  • SO HE GOT A SHIP THAT WASGOING DOWN TO TARSHISH.
  • 00:06:18.572 --> 00:06:22.876
  • NOW TARSHISH WASA SEASIDE RESORT.
  • 00:06:22.876 --> 00:06:25.045
  • AND HE THOUGH HE'D TO LIEIN THE SUN A LITTLE WHILE
  • 00:06:25.045 --> 00:06:27.581
  • BESIDE THE BEACHAND ENJOY HIMSELF.
  • 00:06:27.581 --> 00:06:30.484
  • AND LET GOD SEND SOMEBODY ELSETO DO THIS DIRTY WORK
  • 00:06:30.484 --> 00:06:33.587
  • OF PREACHING JUDGMENTIN NINEVEH.
  • 00:06:33.587 --> 00:06:37.624
  • BUT YOU KNOW THE WAY OFDISOBEDIENCE AND SIN
  • 00:06:37.624 --> 00:06:40.227
  • ALWAYS LEADS DOWNWARD.
  • 00:06:40.227 --> 00:06:42.095
  • NOTICE IT SAYS,HE WENT DOWN TO TARSHISH.
  • 00:06:42.095 --> 00:06:46.300
  • AND IT LEADS DOWN TO GUILTAND LONELINESS
  • 00:06:46.300 --> 00:06:48.969
  • AND SEPARATION AND HELL.
  • 00:06:48.969 --> 00:06:50.671
  • AND EVERY STEP LEADS LOWER.
  • 00:06:50.671 --> 00:06:53.540
  • EVERY TIME YOU FLEEFROM THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:06:53.540 --> 00:06:55.409
  • YOU'RE IN TROUBLE,EVERY TIME.
  • 00:06:55.409 --> 00:06:58.245
  • EVERY TIME YOU MISSYOUR DEVOTIONAL LIFE.
  • 00:06:58.245 --> 00:07:00.180
  • EVERY TIME YOU MISSYOUR TIME OF PRAYER.
  • 00:07:00.180 --> 00:07:01.949
  • EVERY TIME YOU MISS YOUR TIMEOF READING THE WORD.
  • 00:07:01.949 --> 00:07:04.418
  • AS A CHRISTIAN,YOU'RE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:07:04.418 --> 00:07:07.254
  • AND EVERY TIMEYOU HEAR THE GOSPEL
  • 00:07:07.254 --> 00:07:09.189
  • AND DO NOTHING ABOUT IT,YOU'RE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:07:09.189 --> 00:07:11.225
  • YOU'RE IN ETERNAL TROUBLE.
  • 00:07:11.225 --> 00:07:13.961
  • BECAUSE LIVING INSIDEOF YOUR BODY IS A SPIRIT.
  • 00:07:13.961 --> 00:07:17.130
  • AND THAT SPIRIT LIVES FOREVEREITHER IN HEAVEN OR HELL.
  • 00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:20.167
  • AND YOU'RE TAKING A CHANCEEVERY TIME YOU HEAR THE GOSPEL
  • 00:07:20.167 --> 00:07:24.705
  • AND DO NOTHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:24.705 --> 00:07:27.441
  • ADAM AND EVE FLEDFROM GOD'S WILL.
  • 00:07:27.441 --> 00:07:31.612

  • AND GROUND AT THE MILL WHEAT.
  • 00:07:57.204 --> 00:08:00.440
  • DAVID,THE MAN AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART,

  • 00:08:25.599 --> 00:08:28.435
  • MANY OF YOU GO TO CHURCH.
  • 00:08:28.435 --> 00:08:29.937
  • MOST OF YOU I IMAGINEIN THIS AUDIENCE TONIGHT
  • 00:08:29.937 --> 00:08:31.838
  • GO TO CHURCH.
  • 00:08:31.838 --> 00:08:33.540
  • MOST OF YOU'VE BEEN BAPTIZEDOR YOU'VE BEEN CONFIRMED
  • 00:08:33.540 --> 00:08:35.876
  • OR WHATEVERIN YOUR CHURCH.
  • 00:08:35.876 --> 00:08:38.312
  • BUT YOU ARE NOT SURE THATCHRIST LIVES IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:08:38.312 --> 00:08:41.014
  • YOU'RE NOT SURE THATYOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:08:41.014 --> 00:08:42.816
  • YOU'RE NOT SURE THAT IFYOU DIED YOU'VE GO TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:08:42.816 --> 00:08:46.353
  • IF YOU HAVE A DOUBT ABOUT ITYOU OUGHT TO SETTLE IT
  • 00:08:46.353 --> 00:08:49.423
  • THIS VERY NIGHT.
  • 00:08:49.423 --> 00:08:50.791
  • YOU'RE FLEEING FROM GOD.
  • 00:08:50.791 --> 00:08:52.826
  • MANY OF US FLEE BY TRAVEL.
  • 00:08:52.826 --> 00:08:54.127
  • YOU KNOW WE LIVEON AIRPLANES AND IN--
  • 00:08:54.127 --> 00:08:57.731
  • THAT IS WHEN THE CONTROLLERSALLOW US TO FLY.
  • 00:08:57.731 --> 00:09:01.001
  • AND WE LIVE INHOTELS OR MOTELS.
  • 00:09:01.001 --> 00:09:05.939
  • AND WE SEE PEOPLETRAVELING IN AIRPORTS,
  • 00:09:05.939 --> 00:09:09.109
  • THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:09.109 --> 00:09:11.945
  • AND I JUST WONDERWHERE THEY'RE GOING.
  • 00:09:11.945 --> 00:09:14.247
  • MANY PEOPLE ARE SORESTLESS TODAY
  • 00:09:14.247 --> 00:09:16.450
  • THAT THEY JUST WANT TO TRAVELFROM PLACE TO PLACE.
  • 00:09:16.450 --> 00:09:19.152
  • THEY CAN'T SIT STILL.
  • 00:09:19.152 --> 00:09:21.421
  • WE MET A COUPLE THISSUMMER, MY WIFE AND I DID.
  • 00:09:21.421 --> 00:09:23.624
  • AND THEY HAVE HOMES INDIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:09:23.624 --> 00:09:25.559
  • AND THEY SAID, "WE'RE SORESTLESS, WE CAN'T STAND
  • 00:09:25.559 --> 00:09:27.894
  • "ANY PLACE MORE THANTWO WEEKS AT A TIME."
  • 00:09:27.894 --> 00:09:30.530
  • THEN THEY GET ON A JETAND GO TO ANOTHER PLACE;
  • 00:09:30.530 --> 00:09:33.233
  • RESTLESS, FLEEING.
  • 00:09:33.233 --> 00:09:36.870
  • AND MAY PEOPLE FLEE INTOTHE LUST FOR THINGS.
  • 00:09:36.870 --> 00:09:40.607
  • YOU SEE, PEOPLE JUST BUYINGFOR THE SAKE OF BUYING.
  • 00:09:40.607 --> 00:09:43.510
  • AND THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE THATHAVE BECOME COMPULSIVE SHOPPERS
  • 00:09:43.510 --> 00:09:46.480
  • JUST AS THERE ARECOMPULSIVE DRINKERS.
  • 00:09:46.480 --> 00:09:49.416
  • HAVE TO BUY.
  • 00:09:49.416 --> 00:09:51.018
  • CANNOT HAVE ANY MONEYIN THEIR POCKET.
  • 00:09:51.018 --> 00:09:52.386
  • THEY HAVE TO SPEND IT.
  • 00:09:52.386 --> 00:09:54.688
  • I'LL NOT CALL ANY NAMES.
  • 00:09:54.688 --> 00:09:58.025
  • BUT I'M SURE SOME HUSBANDS HEREMAY BE THINKING ALONG THAT LINE
  • 00:09:58.025 --> 00:10:00.627
  • AND WIVES TOO.
  • 00:10:00.627 --> 00:10:03.296
  • AND THEN THERE ARE PEOPLE THATFLEE INTO THE OBSESSION OF SEX.
  • 00:10:03.296 --> 00:10:06.400
  • IT'S BOTH A FADAND A PASSION.
  • 00:10:06.400 --> 00:10:09.136
  • AND TODAY WE'RE FILLED WITH IT,SATURATED WITH IT,
  • 00:10:09.136 --> 00:10:13.607
  • AND GETTING SICK OF IT.
  • 00:10:13.607 --> 00:10:16.343
  • MANY GERMAN YOUNG PEOPLEWERE SAYING LAST SUMMER
  • 00:10:16.343 --> 00:10:18.478
  • AS QUOTED IN THE PRESS,"WE'RE SICK OF IT,
  • 00:10:18.478 --> 00:10:21.081
  • "ALL THIS FREEDOM OF EXPRESSIONAND PERMISSIVENESS."
  • 00:10:21.081 --> 00:10:24.251
  • AND MANY OF THEM HAVE TURNED TOVIOLENCE TO FIND THEIR ESCAPE.
  • 00:10:24.251 --> 00:10:29.222
  • AND THEN WE FLEE IN MYSTICISMAND OCCULTISM.
  • 00:10:29.222 --> 00:10:32.292
  • LIKE SAUL WHO WENT TOTHE WITCH OF ENDOR
  • 00:10:32.292 --> 00:10:34.261
  • INSTEAD OF GODWHEN HE NEEDED HELP.
  • 00:10:34.261 --> 00:10:36.797
  • THEN THERE'S THE ESCAPEINTO PLEASURE.
  • 00:10:36.797 --> 00:10:38.865
  • "SHE THAT LIVETH IN PLEASUREIS DEAD WHILE SHE LIVETH."
  • 00:10:38.865 --> 00:10:41.835
  • AND HOW MANY PEOPLE TONIGHTARE FLEEING FROM GOD
  • 00:10:41.835 --> 00:10:44.104
  • BY TRYING TO HAVE A GOOD TIMEAND LIVING IN PLEASURE,
  • 00:10:44.104 --> 00:10:48.709
  • NOT KNOWING THATYOU'RE DEAD TOWARD GOD?
  • 00:10:48.709 --> 00:10:51.978
  • WE'RE FLEEING.
  • 00:10:51.978 --> 00:10:54.815
  • BUT THE BIBLE SAYS,"HOW SHALL WE ESCAPE
  • 00:10:54.815 --> 00:10:57.651
  • "IF WE NEGLECTSO GREAT A SALVATION?"
  • 00:10:57.651 --> 00:11:01.088
  • WHAT IS THE SALVATION?
  • 00:11:01.088 --> 00:11:02.723
  • THE SALVATION IS JESUS CHRISTCOMING ON THE CROSS
  • 00:11:02.723 --> 00:11:06.293
  • AND DYING FOR OUR SINSAND SHEDDING HIS BLOOD.
  • 00:11:06.293 --> 00:11:10.163
  • "BEING MADE TO BE SIN FOR USWHO KNEW NO SIN
  • 00:11:10.163 --> 00:11:12.833
  • "THAT WE MAY BE MADE
  • 00:11:12.833 --> 00:11:14.167
  • "THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GODIN HIM."
  • 00:11:14.167 --> 00:11:17.237
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "ALL WE LIKESHEEP WE'VE GONE ASTRAY,
  • 00:11:17.237 --> 00:11:20.307
  • "WE'VE TURNED EVERYONETO HIS OWN WAY."
  • 00:11:20.307 --> 00:11:22.142
  • WE'RE ALL SINNERS.
  • 00:11:22.142 --> 00:11:24.311
  • ADAM AND EVE SINNEDIN THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:11:24.311 --> 00:11:26.813
  • CAIN AND ABEL,THEIR SONS, SINNED.
  • 00:11:26.813 --> 00:11:29.750
  • AND THEY PASS THAT DISEASEOF SIN DOWN TO YOU AND ME.
  • 00:11:29.750 --> 00:11:33.019
  • AND WE ALL HAVE THE DISEASEIN OUR HEARTS.
  • 00:11:33.019 --> 00:11:35.388
  • WE'RE ALL UNDER CONDEMNATION.
  • 00:11:35.388 --> 00:11:37.424
  • WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:11:37.424 --> 00:11:41.061
  • WAR DOESN'T NOT INCREASE DEATH.
  • 00:11:41.061 --> 00:11:45.132
  • DEATH IS TOTALIN EVERY GENERATION.
  • 00:11:45.132 --> 00:11:48.101
  • WHAT DIRECTION ARE YOU TAKING?
  • 00:11:48.101 --> 00:11:50.403
  • I READ ABOUT A MANTHAT WAS WALKING THROUGH
  • 00:11:50.403 --> 00:11:52.172
  • THE WESTERN PART OF THE STATETHAT I LIVE IN,
  • 00:11:52.172 --> 00:11:54.207
  • IN NORTH CAROLINA,WHERE WE LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS.
  • 00:11:54.207 --> 00:11:56.443
  • AND HE REACHED A SIGN POSTAND ONE DIRECTION POINTED
  • 00:11:56.443 --> 00:11:59.546
  • TO A SMOOTH LEVEL HIGHWAY.
  • 00:11:59.546 --> 00:12:02.949
  • BUT THE ROAD--
  • 00:12:02.949 --> 00:12:04.417
  • THE SIGN THAT POINTED TOTHE ROAD THAT HE WANTED TO TAKE
  • 00:12:04.417 --> 00:12:07.654
  • WAS A ROUGH ROAD TOTHE PLACE THAT HE WANTED TO GO.
  • 00:12:07.654 --> 00:12:12.959
  • AND HE HAD A VERY HAPPY THOUGHT.
  • 00:12:12.959 --> 00:12:15.195
  • HE CLIMBED THE SIGN POSTAND CHANGED THE MARKERS.
  • 00:12:15.195 --> 00:12:18.498
  • AND HE NEVER GOTTO HIS DESTINATION.
  • 00:12:18.498 --> 00:12:21.935
  • AND MANY OF YOU ARE TRYINGTO CHANGE THE MARKERS
  • 00:12:21.935 --> 00:12:24.171
  • ON THE ROAD OF LIFE.
  • 00:12:24.171 --> 00:12:26.006
  • YOU WANT THE EASY, THE LEVEL,THE PLEASANT ROAD.
  • 00:12:26.006 --> 00:12:28.341
  • BUT THAT ROAD DOESNOT LEAD TO GOD.
  • 00:12:28.341 --> 00:12:31.311
  • YOU SEE, IN THE OLD TESTAMENTIT WAS VERY INTERESTING
  • 00:12:31.311 --> 00:12:33.747
  • THAT WHEN A MAN GAVEHIS HEART TO GOD
  • 00:12:33.747 --> 00:12:37.017
  • HE WAS SUPPOSED TOBECOME PROSPEROUS.
  • 00:12:37.017 --> 00:12:40.153
  • BUT THE NEW TESTAMENTTEACHES THE VERY OPPOSITE.
  • 00:12:40.153 --> 00:12:42.989
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT TEACHESTHAT'S THERE'S SUFFERING
  • 00:12:42.989 --> 00:12:46.126
  • AND DEATH FOR THOSE THATARE FOLLOWING CHRIST.
  • 00:12:46.126 --> 00:12:49.029
  • IT'S NOT EASY TO BEA FOLLOWER OF CHRIST
  • 00:12:49.029 --> 00:12:51.965
  • IN THIS GENERATION ESPECIALLY.
  • 00:12:51.965 --> 00:12:54.234
  • IT'S HARDTO FOLLOW CHRIST!
  • 00:12:54.234 --> 00:12:57.204
  • THERE'RE TWO ROADSOF LIFE JESUS SAID.
  • 00:13:01.875 --> 00:13:04.611
  • "ENTER YE IN ATTHE STRAIGHT GATE.
  • 00:13:04.611 --> 00:13:07.314
  • "FOR WIDE IS THE GATEAND BROAD IS THE ROAD
  • 00:13:07.314 --> 00:13:10.116
  • "THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:13:10.116 --> 00:13:11.685
  • "AND MANY THERE BE THAT GO INTHERE AT," HE SAID.
  • 00:13:11.685 --> 00:13:14.821
  • "BECAUSE STRAIGHT IS THE GATEAND NARROW IS THE WAY
  • 00:13:14.821 --> 00:13:17.123
  • "THAT LEADETH UNTO LIFE.
  • 00:13:17.123 --> 00:13:18.358
  • "AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT."
  • 00:13:18.358 --> 00:13:19.893
  • HE SAID, "THE BROAD ROADTHAT LEADS TO HELL IS FILLED."
  • 00:13:19.893 --> 00:13:27.234
  • AS AN OLD THEOLOGIAN SAIDIN THE MIDDLE AGES,
  • 00:13:27.234 --> 00:13:30.136
  • PEOPLE ARE RUSHING TOWARD HELLAS THOUGH THEY WERE AFRAID
  • 00:13:30.136 --> 00:13:33.473
  • IT WOULD BE FILLEDBEFORE THEY GOT THERE.
  • 00:13:33.473 --> 00:13:36.776
  • "BROAD IS THE WAY,"JESUS SAID.
  • 00:13:36.776 --> 00:13:39.613
  • BUT HE SAID,"THERE'S ANOTHER ROAD
  • 00:13:39.613 --> 00:13:40.814
  • THAT'S NARROW AND RUGGEDAND TOUGH AND HARD."
  • 00:13:40.814 --> 00:13:44.150
  • AND IN ORDER TO GET ON THAT ROADYOU'LL HAVE TO DENY YOURSELF
  • 00:13:44.150 --> 00:13:46.820
  • AND BE WILLINGTO TAKE UP A CROSS.
  • 00:13:46.820 --> 00:13:49.656
  • IDENTIFY YOURSELF WITH CHRISTAT THE SCHOOL,
  • 00:13:49.656 --> 00:13:51.858
  • AT THE FACTORY,ON THE FARM AND
  • 00:13:51.858 --> 00:13:53.660
  • WITH YOUR FRIENDSAND NEIGHBORS.
  • 00:13:53.660 --> 00:13:56.229
  • LET THEM ALL KNOWWHERE YOU STAND.
  • 00:13:56.229 --> 00:13:58.531
  • THAT YOU STAND FOR CHRISTAND FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:13:58.531 --> 00:14:00.901
  • AND FOR HONESTYAND FOR GOODNESS
  • 00:14:00.901 --> 00:14:02.569
  • AND FOR MORALITYAND FOR JUSTICE.
  • 00:14:02.569 --> 00:14:06.640
  • AND THAT'S NOT EASYIN OUR GENERATION.
  • 00:14:07.908 --> 00:14:11.278
  • THERE'S ANY EASY ROADTHAT'S A BROAD ROAD.
  • 00:14:11.278 --> 00:14:13.246
  • "BUT THE END,"JESUS SAID,
  • 00:14:13.246 --> 00:14:14.648
  • "IS DEATH AND DESTRUCTIONAND JUDGMENT AND HELL."
  • 00:14:14.648 --> 00:14:18.518
  • IT DOESN'T LAST LONG.
  • 00:14:18.518 --> 00:14:20.687
  • LIFE WILL SOON BE OVER.
  • 00:14:20.687 --> 00:14:23.690
  • AND HOW MANY OF YOUARE GOING TO WISH THAT
  • 00:14:23.690 --> 00:14:26.159
  • YOU HAD TAKENTHAT NARROW ROAD.
  • 00:14:26.159 --> 00:14:28.428
  • AND MANY OF YOU STANDTONIGHT AT THE CROSSROADS.
  • 00:14:28.428 --> 00:14:30.764
  • YOU HAVE TO MAKE A DECISIONBEFORE YOU LEAVE HERE.
  • 00:14:30.764 --> 00:14:33.566
  • THERE'S NOT A PERSONLISTENING TO MY VOICE,
  • 00:14:33.566 --> 00:14:35.402
  • YOU MAY BE IN THE CHOIR,
  • 00:14:35.402 --> 00:14:37.003
  • YOU MAY BE INTHIS GREAT AUDIENCE,
  • 00:14:37.003 --> 00:14:40.006
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO HAVETO MAKE A DECISION.
  • 00:14:40.006 --> 00:14:42.609
  • YOU SAY, "NO, I'M NOTGOING TO MAKE ONE."
  • 00:14:42.609 --> 00:14:44.177
  • YES, YOU WILL.
  • 00:14:44.177 --> 00:14:45.979
  • YOU ARE GOING TO SAY YES OR NOOR YOU'RE GOING TO SAY MAYBE.
  • 00:14:45.979 --> 00:14:51.384
  • OR MAYBE YOU'LL SAY,"I'LL WAIT."
  • 00:14:51.384 --> 00:14:53.153
  • BUT YOU'RE GOINGTO MAKE A DECISION.
  • 00:14:53.153 --> 00:14:54.921
  • NOT A PERSON IN THIS PLACEWILL LEAVE HERE TONIGHT
  • 00:14:54.921 --> 00:14:57.557
  • WITHOUT HAVING MADEA DECISION
  • 00:14:57.557 --> 00:14:59.526
  • ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DOWITH JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:14:59.526 --> 00:15:02.529
  • YOU WILL HAVE MADE ITWHEN YOU LEAVE HERE.
  • 00:15:02.529 --> 00:15:06.433
  • SO JONAH, IT SAYS,PAID THE FARE THEREOF.
  • 00:15:06.433 --> 00:15:10.537
  • HE GOT ON THE BOAT,GOT ON THE SHIP, PAID THE FARE.
  • 00:15:10.537 --> 00:15:15.942
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHENYOU FOLLOW THE BROAD ROAD,
  • 00:15:15.942 --> 00:15:22.749
  • LIVE FOR YOURSELFAND FOR PLEASURE,
  • 00:15:22.749 --> 00:15:26.286
  • "THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH."
  • 00:15:26.286 --> 00:15:28.488
  • "THE WAY OF THE TRANSGRESSORIS HARD."
  • 00:15:28.488 --> 00:15:30.590
  • THERE'S A HARDNESS TO BEINGA TRANSGRESSOR TOO
  • 00:15:30.590 --> 00:15:33.326
  • THAT ENDS UPIN DEATH AND JUDGMENT.
  • 00:15:33.326 --> 00:15:36.529
  • A SERIES OF TRAGEDIES CAMETO THE SHIP AND THE CREW.
  • 00:15:36.529 --> 00:15:40.500
  • AND THEY BEGAN TO PRAY TOTHEIR GODS WHEN THE STORM CAME.
  • 00:15:40.500 --> 00:15:43.370
  • AND THEY SAID, "OH,SAVE US, WHAT'S WRONG,
  • 00:15:43.370 --> 00:15:45.538
  • "WHAT'S WRONG, WHAT'S WRONG?"
  • 00:15:45.538 --> 00:15:47.807
  • AND THE SAILORS BECAMEVERY MUCH AFRAID
  • 00:15:47.807 --> 00:15:51.644
  • BECAUSE THEY CAST LOTS.
  • 00:15:51.644 --> 00:15:52.979
  • THE LOT FELL UPON JONAH.
  • 00:15:52.979 --> 00:15:55.048
  • AND JONAH CONFESSED THATHE WAS RUNNING
  • 00:15:55.048 --> 00:15:56.649
  • FROM THE LORD GOD.
  • 00:15:56.649 --> 00:15:58.385
  • AND THESE SAILORS WERE BETTERTHAN SOME OF US CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:15:58.385 --> 00:16:01.321
  • THEY TRIED TO SAVE JONAH.
  • 00:16:01.321 --> 00:16:03.223
  • THEY ROWED HARD.
  • 00:16:03.223 --> 00:16:04.424
  • BUT THE COULDN'T MAKE IT.
  • 00:16:04.424 --> 00:16:06.359
  • THE STORM WAS TOO GREAT.
  • 00:16:06.359 --> 00:16:08.862
  • AND SO THEY THREW JONAHOVERBOARD.
  • 00:16:08.862 --> 00:16:11.231
  • AND GOD HAD PREPAREDTHIS GREAT FISH.
  • 00:16:11.231 --> 00:16:14.134
  • YOU SEE YOUR SINAND DISOBEDIENCE
  • 00:16:14.134 --> 00:16:16.036
  • NOT ONLY AFFECTS YOUR LIFE,BUT THE LIVES OF OTHERS.
  • 00:16:16.036 --> 00:16:19.172
  • JONAH'S FLEEING FROMGOD'S COMMAND AND FROM GOD
  • 00:16:19.172 --> 00:16:25.645
  • AFFECTED THOSE SAILORS.
  • 00:16:25.645 --> 00:16:28.114
  • THEY WERE IN DANGER OF LOSINGTHEIR LIVES.
  • 00:16:28.114 --> 00:16:30.383
  • YOU SAY, "IF I WANNA TAKETHESE DRUGS THAT'S MY BUSINESS."
  • 00:16:30.383 --> 00:16:33.486
  • WHAT ABOUT YOUR PARENTS?
  • 00:16:33.486 --> 00:16:35.388
  • WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLEYOU STEAL FROM?
  • 00:16:35.388 --> 00:16:37.257
  • WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDRENTHAT ARE YET UNBORN
  • 00:16:37.257 --> 00:16:39.192
  • THAT'LL BE AFFECTED?
  • 00:16:39.192 --> 00:16:43.463
  • JONAH SAID, "I'LL GO WHEREI WANT TO GO.
  • 00:16:43.463 --> 00:16:45.331
  • "AND I'LL DO WHATI WANNA DO."
  • 00:16:45.331 --> 00:16:46.900
  • I, I, I.
  • 00:16:46.900 --> 00:16:49.269
  • THAT WAS HIS RIGHT.
  • 00:16:49.269 --> 00:16:50.804
  • JUST AS LONG AS
  • 00:16:50.804 --> 00:16:52.539
  • HE WAS WILLINGTO PAY THE PRICE.
  • 00:16:52.539 --> 00:16:54.674
  • AND THE PRICE ISJUDGMENT AND HELL
  • 00:16:54.674 --> 00:16:57.577
  • AND LONELINESS
  • 00:16:57.577 --> 00:16:58.678
  • AND DISCOURAGEMENTAND GUILT.
  • 00:16:58.678 --> 00:17:01.581
  • THERE'S A PRICETHAT YOU'LL PAY.
  • 00:17:01.581 --> 00:17:04.084
  • "THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH."
  • 00:17:04.084 --> 00:17:05.785
  • "BE SURE YOUR SINWILL FIND YOU OUT."
  • 00:17:05.785 --> 00:17:07.654
  • NO ONE IN THIS AUDIENCEHAS EVER COMMITTED ONE SIN
  • 00:17:07.654 --> 00:17:10.723
  • THAT WILL NOT BE FOUND OUT.
  • 00:17:10.723 --> 00:17:13.693
  • NOW JONAH WENT TO SLEEPIN THE BOAT.
  • 00:17:13.693 --> 00:17:16.996
  • ISN'T THAT STRANGE,RUNNING FROM GOD,
  • 00:17:16.996 --> 00:17:19.032
  • THE BIG STORM,THE JUDGMENT COMING
  • 00:17:19.032 --> 00:17:21.034
  • AND HE'S ASLEEP?
  • 00:17:21.034 --> 00:17:22.402
  • HOW CAN HE SLEEP?
  • 00:17:22.402 --> 00:17:23.903
  • BECAUSE SIN IS LIKE A SEDATIVE.
  • 00:17:23.903 --> 00:17:27.941
  • JONAH WAS SLEEPINGTHE SLEEP OF DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:17:27.941 --> 00:17:31.277
  • I TALKED TO A MANSOME TIME AGO.
  • 00:17:31.277 --> 00:17:33.680
  • HE'D DEFRAUDED HIS NEIGHBORTHROUGH DECEIT
  • 00:17:33.680 --> 00:17:36.816
  • AND STOLEN MONEYFROM HIS NEIGHBOR.
  • 00:17:36.816 --> 00:17:38.418
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:17:38.418 --> 00:17:39.752
  • "I FEEL PERFECTLY AT PEACEABOUT IT BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:17:39.752 --> 00:17:43.490
  • "MY NEIGHBOR'S FATHER DIDTO MY FATHER
  • 00:17:43.490 --> 00:17:46.659
  • "A GENERATION AGO."
  • 00:17:46.659 --> 00:17:49.229
  • NOW, THAT'S A FALSE PEACE.
  • 00:17:49.229 --> 00:17:51.164
  • IT'S THE PEACE OF DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:17:51.164 --> 00:17:52.899
  • THE PEACE OF BEINGAWAY FROM GOD.
  • 00:17:52.899 --> 00:17:54.634
  • BUT IT'LL SOON END.
  • 00:17:54.634 --> 00:17:57.770
  • AND THEN WILL COMETHE GUILT AND REMORSE
  • 00:17:57.770 --> 00:17:59.772
  • AND THE JUDGMENTAND THE HELL.
  • 00:17:59.772 --> 00:18:02.609
  • AND TIME IS PASSING FAST.
  • 00:18:02.609 --> 00:18:06.880
  • FIRST, SIN IS FUN,THEN IT'S BORING,
  • 00:18:06.880 --> 00:18:09.649
  • THEN IT MAKES YOU INSENSITIVE.
  • 00:18:09.649 --> 00:18:11.985
  • AND THERE WAS A TIME WHENYOU WERE VERY SENSITIVE TO
  • 00:18:11.985 --> 00:18:14.020
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:15.488
  • IT PRICKED YOUR CONSCIENCE.
  • 00:18:15.488 --> 00:18:16.689
  • IT BROUGHT TEARS TO YOUR EYES.
  • 00:18:16.689 --> 00:18:18.191
  • IT MADE YOU UNCOMFORTABLE.
  • 00:18:18.191 --> 00:18:19.792
  • AND NOW YOU TURN AWAYWITHOUT ANY FEELING AT ALL.
  • 00:18:19.792 --> 00:18:22.328
  • YOU'RE SLEEPING THE SLEEP.
  • 00:18:22.328 --> 00:18:23.630
  • YOU'VE BEEN SEDATED BY SIN.
  • 00:18:23.630 --> 00:18:28.501
  • NOW JONAH'S SIN AFFECTEDTHAT ENTIRE SHIP.
  • 00:18:28.501 --> 00:18:31.871
  • "NONE OF US LIVETH UNTOOURSELVES," THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:18:33.473 --> 00:18:38.211
  • WE MUST LEARN TO SAY WITH DAVID,
  • 00:18:38.211 --> 00:18:39.879
  • "SEARCH ME, OH GOD,AND KNOW MY HEART.
  • 00:18:39.879 --> 00:18:42.148
  • "TRY ME AND KNOW MY THOUGHTS.
  • 00:18:42.148 --> 00:18:44.050
  • "AND SEE IF HERE BEANY WICKED WAY IN ME.
  • 00:18:44.050 --> 00:18:46.186
  • "AND LEAD ME INTHE WAY EVERLASTING."
  • 00:18:46.186 --> 00:18:48.655
  • SEARCH ME,SEARCH ME.
  • 00:18:48.655 --> 00:18:52.458
  • ARE YOU ASKING GODTO SEARCH YOU TONIGHT?
  • 00:18:52.458 --> 00:18:56.329
  • DO YOU KNOW FOR SUREYOUR RELATIONSHIP TO GOD?
  • 00:18:56.329 --> 00:19:01.634
  • AND DO YOU KNOW FOR SURETHAT YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN?
  • 00:19:01.634 --> 00:19:04.537
  • DO YOU KNOW FOR SURETHAT YOU'RE GOING TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:19:04.537 --> 00:19:08.308
  • "AND THE WORD OF THE LORD CAMEUNTO JONAH THE SECOND TIME."
  • 00:19:08.308 --> 00:19:13.613
  • YOU SEE GOD SPOKETO HIM THE FIRST TIME.
  • 00:19:13.613 --> 00:19:15.248
  • NOW HE GIVES HIMA SECOND CHANCE.
  • 00:19:15.248 --> 00:19:16.749
  • NOW THAT IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:19:16.749 --> 00:19:19.586
  • WHEN THE THIEF ON THE CROSSTURNED TO THE LORD AND SAID,
  • 00:19:19.586 --> 00:19:22.422
  • "REMEMBER ME WHEN THOUCOMEST INTO THY KINGDOM."
  • 00:19:22.422 --> 00:19:24.591
  • THAT WAS HIS FIRSTAND ONLY MOMENT.
  • 00:19:24.591 --> 00:19:27.727
  • HE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THAT MOMENTWHEN HE SAID,
  • 00:19:27.727 --> 00:19:29.696
  • "LORD, REMEMBER ME."
  • 00:19:29.696 --> 00:19:32.298
  • AND CHRIST SAID, "TODAY THOUSHALT BE WITH ME IN PARADISE."
  • 00:19:32.298 --> 00:19:34.734
  • TONIGHT THERE ARE MANYOF YOU LIKE THAT.
  • 00:19:34.734 --> 00:19:37.670
  • THIS MAY BE YOUR LAST MOMENT,YOUR ONLY MOMENT
  • 00:19:37.670 --> 00:19:41.207
  • TO SAY YES TO CHRIST.
  • 00:19:41.207 --> 00:19:44.377
  • DO YOU REMEMBER WHENGOD BEGAN TO SPEAK TO YOU
  • 00:19:44.377 --> 00:19:46.145
  • WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGAND YOU PUT IT OFF?
  • 00:19:46.145 --> 00:19:49.983
  • AND YOU WOULD SAY TONIGHT,
  • 00:19:49.983 --> 00:19:51.918
  • "BACKWARD, OH BACKWARD,OH TIME IN IT'S FLIGHT
  • 00:19:51.918 --> 00:19:54.621
  • "AND MAKE ME A CHILD AGAINJUST FOR TONIGHT."
  • 00:19:54.621 --> 00:19:57.890
  • OH, HOW I WOULD LIKETO GO BACK THERE.
  • 00:19:57.890 --> 00:20:00.059
  • HOW I'D LIKE TO GO BACK TOTHAT LITTLE CHURCH BACK THERE.

  • BUT NOW YOU'RE OLDER,YOU'RE HARDENED.
  • 00:20:04.330 --> 00:20:08.034
  • YOUR CONSCIENCE NO LONGERPRICKS YOU.

  • THE WORD OF GOD NO LONGERAPPEALS TO YOU.
  • 00:20:12.171 --> 00:20:14.974
  • AND THERE IS DANGERLYING AHEAD.
  • 00:20:14.974 --> 00:20:19.545
  • NOT MANY TIMES DOES GOD GIVEA SECOND CHANCE.
  • 00:20:19.545 --> 00:20:22.782
  • GOD SAID, "ALL RIGHT,I'LL GIVE YOU A SECOND CHANCE.
  • 00:20:22.782 --> 00:20:25.351
