  • And because of the pride of Lucifer,
  • 00:00:05.060 --> 00:00:08.030
  • he goes from the shining one, the angel of light,
  • 00:00:08.040 --> 00:00:13.030
  • to the prince of darkness because of pride.
  • 00:00:13.040 --> 00:00:15.070
  • His desire was to be on the throne,
  • 00:00:15.080 --> 00:00:17.030
  • his destiny is to be in the pit.
  • 00:00:17.040 --> 00:00:19.060
  • His ambition is to go up to the heights,
  • 00:00:19.070 --> 00:00:21.050
  • his destination will be in the depths.
  • 00:00:21.060 --> 00:00:24.070
  • Now, what a difference, what a contrast this is to our Savior,
  • 00:00:24.080 --> 00:00:31.000
  • the Lord Jesus Christ, who said, "I'm going to go down,
  • 00:00:31.010 --> 00:00:35.140
  • I'm going to humble myself."
  • 00:00:35.150 --> 00:00:37.000
  • Philippians says, "Who being in the same likeness,
  • 00:00:37.010 --> 00:00:40.190
  • the form of God, being God himself, he emptied himself."
  • 00:00:40.200 --> 00:00:45.160
  • He poured himself out.
  • 00:00:45.170 --> 00:00:46.290
  • He took upon himself the form of a servant.
  • 00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:50.020
  • Skip: Man, I got so many enemies.
  • 00:00:54.090 --> 00:00:56.150
  • What you fail to realize is the meaning of that passage,
  • 00:00:56.160 --> 00:00:59.100
  • one-third fell, two-thirds are left.
  • 00:00:59.110 --> 00:01:01.160
  • They're outnumbered two to one.
  • 00:01:01.170 --> 00:01:04.060
  • They're outnumbered two to one.
  • 00:01:04.090 --> 00:01:05.220
  • You have got God the Holy Spirit living in you, and you have
  • 00:01:05.230 --> 00:01:08.170
  • at your disposal, dispatched for your protection and God's
  • 00:01:08.180 --> 00:01:13.010
  • purposes and will, two-thirds of the holy angels
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:17.190
  • guarding his people.
  • 00:01:17.200 --> 00:01:19.050
  • And the Bible says you are guarded by them.
  • 00:01:19.060 --> 00:01:21.230
  • So, Satan has fallen from heaven, his domain is the earth,
  • 00:01:21.240 --> 00:01:27.250
  • but interestingly he still seems to have some sort of access
  • 00:01:27.260 --> 00:01:33.200
  • to heaven even to this day.
  • 00:01:33.210 --> 00:01:36.240
  • In Job chapter 1, we are told that there came a day
  • 00:01:36.250 --> 00:01:40.200
  • when the sons of God,
  • 00:01:40.210 --> 00:01:43.050
  • that's an Old Testament rendering for angels,
  • 00:01:43.060 --> 00:01:45.230
  • the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord,
  • 00:01:45.240 --> 00:01:49.240
  • and Satan was among them.
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:52.190
  • And God said to Satan, "From where do you come?"
  • 00:01:52.200 --> 00:01:55.040
  • And he said, "From going to and fro on the earth."
  • 00:01:55.050 --> 00:01:59.240
  • So, his domain is the earth.
  • 00:01:59.250 --> 00:02:02.000
  • Excuse me, he's kicked out of heaven, but he has some sort
  • 00:02:02.010 --> 00:02:04.260
  • of access to heaven as there's this accountability
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:08.180
  • of being presented before the Lord.
  • 00:02:08.190 --> 00:02:11.060
  • So, what does he do on the earth?
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:13.090
  • What does he do? He runs it.
  • 00:02:13.100 --> 00:02:16.140
  • He's called the god of this age or the god of this world.
  • 00:02:16.150 --> 00:02:19.230
  • And when I say he runs the world, I don't mean that he runs
  • 00:02:19.240 --> 00:02:22.030
  • the world in the sense that God runs the world.
  • 00:02:22.040 --> 00:02:24.120
  • Of course, he is sovereign, God is sovereign over all,
  • 00:02:24.130 --> 00:02:26.290
  • and the earth is the Lord's.
  • 00:02:27.000 --> 00:02:28.190
  • However, he runs the world's system.
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:31.180
  • The Bible talks about the world and I'm putting quotes
  • 00:02:31.190 --> 00:02:34.150
  • around it, meaning that evil system that includes
  • 00:02:34.160 --> 00:02:38.080
  • all the unregenerate people.
  • 00:02:38.090 --> 00:02:40.210
  • He works through them to enact his will on the earth.
  • 00:02:40.220 --> 00:02:45.130
  • He has, in effect, the entire world in his lap.
  • 00:02:45.140 --> 00:02:49.160
  • Did you know that?
  • 00:02:49.170 --> 00:02:52.000
  • 1 John chapter 5, it says, "We are of God, little children,
  • 00:02:52.010 --> 00:02:56.150
  • and the whole world lies under the sway
  • 00:02:56.160 --> 00:03:00.120
  • or in the lap of the wicked one."
  • 00:03:00.130 --> 00:03:05.060
  • What does he do exactly?
  • 00:03:05.070 --> 00:03:07.030
  • Well, he has four principle targets, and I'm only going
  • 00:03:07.040 --> 00:03:09.210
  • to mention them because of time.
  • 00:03:09.220 --> 00:03:11.270
  • He has four principal targets, and you're not
  • 00:03:11.280 --> 00:03:14.190
  • number one or two.
  • 00:03:14.200 --> 00:03:17.010
  • Don't flatter yourself.
  • 00:03:17.020 --> 00:03:19.160
  • His principal target has always been and still
  • 00:03:19.170 --> 00:03:22.110
  • is the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:25.220
  • Number two, holy angels.
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:27.290
  • There's always the battle in the heavenly realm, so we get
  • 00:03:28.000 --> 00:03:31.240
  • insights into it in books like Daniel, et cetera, Zechariah.
  • 00:03:31.250 --> 00:03:35.190
  • The holy angels that do war, Revelations chapter 12,
  • 00:03:35.200 --> 00:03:39.060
  • against Satan and his minions.
  • 00:03:39.070 --> 00:03:41.210
  • So, Jesus Christ, holy angels.
  • 00:03:41.220 --> 00:03:43.110
  • Number three, the nation of Israel, God's covenant land
  • 00:03:43.120 --> 00:03:46.200
  • that he will enact his plan through throughout history.
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:50.170
  • And number four, believers, you and I are a part of that realm.
  • 00:03:50.180 --> 00:03:56.190
  • And what does he do to us?
  • 00:03:56.200 --> 00:03:58.100
  • Well, we could do several studies on that, couldn't we?
  • 00:03:58.110 --> 00:04:03.070
  • But one of the things he does besides tempt you, besides use
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:07.040
  • the world and your flesh, is he accuses you before God.
  • 00:04:07.050 --> 00:04:13.010
  • He's called the accuser of the brethren, Revelation chapter 12,
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:16.070
  • who accuses them before God day and night.
  • 00:04:16.080 --> 00:04:20.010
  • You're saying, "Satan accuses me before God?
  • 00:04:20.020 --> 00:04:23.130
  • What does he tell him?"
  • 00:04:23.140 --> 00:04:24.230
  • Just the truth. He's got the dirt on you.
  • 00:04:24.240 --> 00:04:27.250
  • He knows what you think, what you do.
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:29.110
  • He knows you. He's studied you.
  • 00:04:29.120 --> 00:04:31.230
  • And the thing is, all the accusations he brings
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:34.010
  • I think are accurate.
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:36.250
  • What he fails to understand, however, is the power of the
  • 00:04:36.260 --> 00:04:39.080
  • blood of Jesus Christ, which cleanses a man
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:41.260
  • or woman from all sin.
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:43.200
  • So, all those accusations may be right, but he fails to see the
  • 00:04:43.210 --> 00:04:47.120
  • judicial sentence that has been passed in your behalf.
  • 00:04:47.130 --> 00:04:52.270
  • But he accuses you before God day and night.
  • 00:04:52.280 --> 00:04:55.030
  • And I dare say you've heard some of those accusations
  • 00:04:55.040 --> 00:04:58.190
  • in your own little head.
  • 00:04:58.200 --> 00:05:01.020
  • "You call yourself a Christian.
  • 00:05:01.030 --> 00:05:04.000
  • What do you--you shouldn't be at church.
  • 00:05:04.010 --> 00:05:05.260
  • What are you doing here?"
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:07.220
  • Answer, "I'm here with all the other sinners.
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:11.250
  • We all need God."
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:14.020
  • But he tries to accuse you and make you feel so bad
  • 00:05:14.030 --> 00:05:17.180
  • and so guilty and so unworthy.
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:19.150
  • And of course, the answer is I am guilty, I am unworthy.
  • 00:05:19.160 --> 00:05:22.070
  • Thank you, Lord, for saving me.
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:23.220
  • Thank you for the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:05:23.230 --> 00:05:25.150
  • Next, move on.
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:28.260
  • So, his dwelling is in heaven, his domain is the earth.
  • 00:05:30.100 --> 00:05:34.060
  • Now, I did mention this, and I'm going to have you turn if you're
  • 00:05:34.070 --> 00:05:37.050
  • daring enough, to Ezekiel chapter 28 'cause the corollary
  • 00:05:37.060 --> 00:05:41.230
  • to what we just read in Isaiah 14 is in Ezekiel 28.
  • 00:05:41.240 --> 00:05:46.250
  • And as you're turning there, let me say to you that Ezekiel
  • 00:05:46.260 --> 00:05:50.040
  • does exactly the same thing Isaiah does.
  • 00:05:50.050 --> 00:05:54.210
  • Ezekiel begins with an earthly ruler of his day,
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:59.160
  • in this case the prince of Tyre.
  • 00:05:59.170 --> 00:06:02.250
  • Tyre is on the sea coast of Lebanon, ancient Phoenicia
  • 00:06:02.260 --> 00:06:06.220
  • of that time, and he addresses this earthly ruler.
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:10.250
  • And it's a straightforward polemic, a verbal attack against
  • 00:06:10.260 --> 00:06:16.140
  • the prince of Tyre, and we know who that was.
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:20.020
  • It was a guy named Ithobaal II, who was puffed up with pride,
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:26.070
  • and judgment is pronounced against him.
  • 00:06:26.080 --> 00:06:28.130
  • But then again, there's a shift in the text.
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:32.120
  • And in Ezekiel chapter 28, verse 11, it says, "Moreover,
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:38.000
  • the Word of the Lord came to me saying, 'Son of man,
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:40.260
  • take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre.'
  • 00:06:40.270 --> 00:06:44.130
  • Now, I want to talk about somebody even more powerful
  • 00:06:44.140 --> 00:06:47.050
  • than the earthly ruler of the Phoenician Empire,
  • 00:06:47.060 --> 00:06:50.180
  • the king of Tyre.
  • 00:06:50.190 --> 00:06:51.280
  • And say to him, 'Thus says the Lord God, "You were the seal
  • 00:06:51.290 --> 00:06:59.280
  • of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty."'"
  • 00:06:59.290 --> 00:07:07.120
  • Now who is he addressing?
  • 00:07:07.130 --> 00:07:09.210
  • Well, it doesn't sort of sound like it's the prince of Tyre.
  • 00:07:09.220 --> 00:07:13.180
  • Didn't sound like it's Ithobaal II with this language.
  • 00:07:13.190 --> 00:07:19.050
  • Look at the next verse, "You were in Eden,
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:23.290
  • the garden of God."
  • 00:07:24.000 --> 00:07:27.000
  • Okay, so, who's he talking to?
  • 00:07:27.010 --> 00:07:28.230
  • Who was in Eden?
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:30.100
  • I mean, the population was pretty limited, right?
  • 00:07:30.110 --> 00:07:33.090
  • It was Adam and Eve.
  • 00:07:33.100 --> 00:07:35.140
  • And a shining one, the serpent, Lucifer, Satan.
  • 00:07:35.150 --> 00:07:42.280
  • So, there was only three.
  • 00:07:42.290 --> 00:07:45.110
  • "You were in Eden, the garden of God.
  • 00:07:45.120 --> 00:07:48.000
  • Every precious stone was your covering, the sardius, topaz,
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:52.080
  • the diamond, the pearl, the onyx, jasper,
  • 00:07:52.090 --> 00:07:54.130
  • sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold,"
  • 00:07:54.140 --> 00:07:58.180
  • the ancient way of describing color.
  • 00:07:58.190 --> 00:08:02.150
  • "The workmanship of your timbrals and pipes,"
  • 00:08:02.160 --> 00:08:04.210
  • those are musical instruments, "was prepared for you
  • 00:08:04.220 --> 00:08:07.120
  • on the day you were created.
  • 00:08:07.130 --> 00:08:09.100
  • You were the anointed cherub," that's an angelic being,
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:14.100
  • cherubim, a cherub who covers.
  • 00:08:14.110 --> 00:08:17.240
  • "I established you.
  • 00:08:17.250 --> 00:08:19.180
  • You were on the holy mountain of God.
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:21.290
  • You walked back and forth in the midst of the fiery stones.
  • 00:08:22.000 --> 00:08:24.230
  • You were perfect in your ways from the day you were
  • 00:08:24.240 --> 00:08:27.250
  • created until iniquity was found in you."
  • 00:08:27.260 --> 00:08:34.020
  • He's speaking to an angelic being, a cherub.
  • 00:08:34.030 --> 00:08:37.170
  • You were the anointed cherub who covers.
  • 00:08:37.180 --> 00:08:41.160
  • He was covering or standing guard,
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:43.260
  • presumably in God's throne.
  • 00:08:43.270 --> 00:08:46.230
  • But then something happened.
  • 00:08:46.240 --> 00:08:48.220
  • Verse 15, "Until iniquity was found in you."
  • 00:08:48.230 --> 00:08:51.110
  • Iniquity was found, that's the fall.
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:53.120
  • The very next verse, verse 16 says, "And you sinned."
  • 00:08:53.130 --> 00:08:58.160
  • And then verse 17 tells us how.
  • 00:08:58.170 --> 00:09:00.200
  • "Your heart was lifted up."
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:07.120
  • Instead of covering the throne of God,
  • 00:09:07.130 --> 00:09:10.270
  • now he's coveting the throne of God.
  • 00:09:10.280 --> 00:09:15.200
  • This being was numero uno, minus the uno.
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:22.120
  • And it was that minus the uno that bothered him
  • 00:09:22.130 --> 00:09:24.210
  • greatly enough to think he could actually stage a coup against
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:29.000
  • God as we saw in Isaiah.
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:31.090
  • "I will be like the Most High."
  • 00:09:31.100 --> 00:09:35.130
  • Here's something interesting.
  • 00:09:35.140 --> 00:09:37.040
  • Did you know in the Bible, there are only
  • 00:09:37.050 --> 00:09:38.190
  • three angels given names?
  • 00:09:38.200 --> 00:09:41.110
  • Only three.
  • 00:09:41.120 --> 00:09:43.110
  • Gabriel, he's associated with the nation of Israel
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:46.110
  • and messianic prophesy.
  • 00:09:46.120 --> 00:09:48.000
  • He shows up in the New and Old Testament.
  • 00:09:48.010 --> 00:09:49.210
  • Michael, he's a warrior angel, and Lucifer.
  • 00:09:49.220 --> 00:09:54.070
  • Those are the only three given names.
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:56.180
  • But the one in charge of them all was this one,
  • 00:09:56.190 --> 00:10:00.090
  • the anointed cherub who covers, perfect in beauty.
  • 00:10:00.100 --> 00:10:04.000
  • You're at the peak.
  • 00:10:04.010 --> 00:10:05.190
  • You're at the very top.
  • 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:07.070
  • So, his dwelling was in heaven, his domain is on the earth.
  • 00:10:07.080 --> 00:10:12.240
  • Now, let's follow his biography into the future,
  • 00:10:12.250 --> 00:10:16.110
  • where he's going to end up.
  • 00:10:16.120 --> 00:10:18.210
  • Back to Isaiah 14.
  • 00:10:18.220 --> 00:10:22.150
  • In verse 15, says, "Yet you shall be brought down to,"
  • 00:10:22.160 --> 00:10:29.000
  • says what?
  • 00:10:29.010 --> 00:10:30.220
  • Sheol, that's a Hebrew word translated
  • 00:10:30.230 --> 00:10:33.180
  • in the New Testament Hades or hell.
  • 00:10:33.190 --> 00:10:37.050
  • It's the abode of the dead, it's the grave,
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:38.230
  • often translated hell.
  • 00:10:38.240 --> 00:10:40.150
  • You'll be brought down to hell.
  • 00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:42.040
  • Here's a shocker, this shocks most people.
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:44.070
  • Did you know that Satan is not in hell?
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:49.030
  • "Wait a minute, all those cartoons said he is.
  • 00:10:49.040 --> 00:10:53.170
  • All those stories people told me said he is."
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:55.190
  • He is not in hell.
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:58.060
  • Second shocker, he's never been in hell.
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:11:03.110
  • That shocks most people.
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:05.100
  • Now, that's not to say he won't be 'cause he will be in hell.
  • 00:11:05.110 --> 00:11:09.060
  • That's his destiny, that's his destination.
  • 00:11:09.070 --> 00:11:11.100
  • He will be in hell.
  • 00:11:11.110 --> 00:11:13.000
  • And when he gets there, he's not going to be like
  • 00:11:13.010 --> 00:11:15.160
  • all the cartoons and all the stories portray him
  • 00:11:15.170 --> 00:11:19.070
  • as the chief tormenter of hell.
  • 00:11:19.080 --> 00:11:21.260
  • No, no, he's the chief target in hell.
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:25.210
  • He's the chief victim, not the victimizer,
  • 00:11:25.220 --> 00:11:27.240
  • he's the chief victim.
  • 00:11:27.250 --> 00:11:29.260
  • Jesus said that hell was made for the devil and his angels.
  • 00:11:29.270 --> 00:11:36.150
  • So, what's going to happen to him?
  • 00:11:36.160 --> 00:11:37.290
  • Revelations chapter 20, I'll read it to you,
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:39.250
  • not the whole chapter, a couple verses.
  • 00:11:39.260 --> 00:11:43.020
  • "Then I saw an angel coming down," don't know which angel,
  • 00:11:43.030 --> 00:11:45.130
  • but what a great job.
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:47.010
  • "I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key
  • 00:11:47.020 --> 00:11:49.160
  • to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
  • 00:11:49.170 --> 00:11:52.170
  • And he laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old,
  • 00:11:52.180 --> 00:11:55.160
  • who is the devil and Satan, and bound him.
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:59.190
  • That's when Satan is bound.
  • 00:11:59.200 --> 00:12:03.100
  • It goes on to say, "The devil who deceived them was cast
  • 00:12:03.110 --> 00:12:06.060
  • into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast
  • 00:12:06.070 --> 00:12:08.280
  • and the false prophet are, and they will be tormented
  • 00:12:08.290 --> 00:12:12.230
  • day and night forever and ever."
  • 00:12:12.240 --> 00:12:18.010
  • Yeah, amen to that hand clap. I'm looking forward to that day.
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:23.270
  • I mean, he's bound, he's incarcerated, he's there forever
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:27.220
  • and ever, tormented day and night forever and ever.
  • 00:12:27.230 --> 00:12:33.180
  • My mind goes to that great theological work,
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:36.040
  • the Wizard of Oz.
  • 00:12:36.050 --> 00:12:40.060
  • And the line which says, "Ding dong, the witch is dead."
  • 00:12:40.070 --> 00:12:44.110
  • Right, it's a happy day when that happened.
  • 00:12:44.120 --> 00:12:46.190
  • We don't know which angel this was, maybe Michael,
  • 00:12:46.200 --> 00:12:49.000
  • that warrior angel, but what a great job to be the dude
  • 00:12:49.010 --> 00:12:52.180
  • to handcuff the devil and incarcerate him.
  • 00:12:52.190 --> 00:12:56.000
  • Love it.
  • 00:12:56.010 --> 00:12:57.290
  • Skip: Well, Christianity on-- in America among
  • 00:12:58.000 --> 00:13:01.040
  • college students isn't like a bright story.
  • 00:13:01.050 --> 00:13:03.160
  • I mean, it never has been.
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:05.070
  • Typically, you'll hear the stories of kids going to church,
  • 00:13:05.080 --> 00:13:07.050
  • they drop off the--you know, the deep end in college.
  • 00:13:07.060 --> 00:13:10.260
  • And yet, the Passion Movement is filled with college students,
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:14.020
  • college aged students.
  • 00:13:14.030 --> 00:13:15.280
  • You talk about filling arenas, et cetera.
  • 00:13:15.290 --> 00:13:17.230
  • Tell us about what's going on in college in general versus
  • 00:13:17.240 --> 00:13:23.150
  • what's happening that you're seeing what the Lord's doing
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:25.170
  • among college students.
  • 00:13:25.180 --> 00:13:27.210
  • Brad Jones: There are people leaving the church,
  • 00:13:27.220 --> 00:13:29.010
  • but that's not the only story because there--
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:31.130
  • we have seen thousands
  • 00:13:31.140 --> 00:13:33.120
  • and thousands and thousands of college students rising up,
  • 00:13:33.130 --> 00:13:36.100
  • filling arenas, saying, "We believe in Jesus.
  • 00:13:36.110 --> 00:13:39.270
  • And we might not show up at the church every Sunday
  • 00:13:39.280 --> 00:13:42.170
  • because for whatever reason."
  • 00:13:42.180 --> 00:13:44.100
  • Maybe the churches aren't noticing them, paying attention
  • 00:13:44.110 --> 00:13:46.210
  • to them, speaking to them.
  • 00:13:46.220 --> 00:13:49.000
  • But we know that there's-- I mean,
  • 00:13:49.010 --> 00:13:52.100
  • millions of college students around the world
  • 00:13:52.110 --> 00:13:54.200
  • that follow Jesus and they want to live for him.
  • 00:13:54.210 --> 00:13:57.030
  • And so, a few of the events that we've done recently,
  • 00:13:57.040 --> 00:13:59.160
  • we were at Passion 2014.
  • 00:13:59.170 --> 00:14:01.060
  • We had two events, one in Atlanta where
  • 00:14:01.070 --> 00:14:03.100
  • the Atlanta Hawks play.
  • 00:14:03.110 --> 00:14:05.090
  • One where in the Toyota Center in Houston,
  • 00:14:05.100 --> 00:14:07.020
  • where the Houston Rockets play.
  • 00:14:07.030 --> 00:14:08.280
  • I tell you what, we call it the 360 moment, Pastor Skip, 'cause
  • 00:14:08.290 --> 00:14:13.010
  • when you're standing on the floor and you get to turn around
  • 00:14:13.020 --> 00:14:16.170
  • and you--and you know, they may come because they know Louie
  • 00:14:16.180 --> 00:14:20.190
  • or Christian or our other worship leaders,
  • 00:14:20.200 --> 00:14:22.220
  • Brett, Chris Tomlin, David Krauter,
  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:25.110
  • or some of the speakers that have been a part
  • 00:14:25.120 --> 00:14:27.020
  • of our movement since the beginning.
  • 00:14:27.030 --> 00:14:28.120
  • John Piper is at most of our national gatherings,
  • 00:14:28.130 --> 00:14:30.140
  • Francis Chan.
  • 00:14:30.150 --> 00:14:32.050
  • That might've gotten them in the room, but the power is
  • 00:14:32.060 --> 00:14:34.190
  • that 360 moment, when they're like, "I'm not alone.
  • 00:14:34.200 --> 00:14:39.170
  • There's other people my age that are living for Jesus."
  • 00:14:39.180 --> 00:14:43.120
  • And we've seen that, and that's what we want in every single
  • 00:14:43.130 --> 00:14:46.140
  • gathering that we have for, you know, them to get
  • 00:14:46.150 --> 00:14:49.060
  • their eyes off the stage, but to get their eyes on Jesus,
  • 00:14:49.070 --> 00:14:51.260
  • but also see their generation.
  • 00:14:51.270 --> 00:14:54.030
  • 'Cause that will change somebody's life.
  • 00:14:54.040 --> 00:14:56.070
  • Skip: So, Brad, paint the picture a little bit for us,
  • 00:14:56.080 --> 00:14:57.290
  • 360 moment, an auditorium full.
  • 00:14:58.000 --> 00:15:01.070
  • How many are we talking about? What does that look like?
  • 00:15:01.080 --> 00:15:03.140
  • Brad: Every gathering's different.
  • 00:15:03.150 --> 00:15:05.000
  • I mean, we had 20.000 at these 2 events.
  • 00:15:05.010 --> 00:15:07.010
  • The year before that--
  • 00:15:07.020 --> 00:15:08.130
  • Skip: Twenty thousand each? Brad: Each, yeah.
  • 00:15:08.140 --> 00:15:10.040
  • The year before that, we have the chance to be in
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:11.180
  • the Georgia Dome, where the Falcons play.
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:13.190
  • Probably the largest collegiate gathering of Christians ever.
  • 00:15:13.200 --> 00:15:17.170
  • That's the most that we've ever heard of.
  • 00:15:17.180 --> 00:15:19.060
  • There were 60.000 college students in 1 arena for
  • 00:15:19.070 --> 00:15:22.050
  • 4 days waiting on God, listening to God.
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:26.160
  • And then, I mean, it's just mind-blowing.
  • 00:15:26.170 --> 00:15:28.270
  • But we've also done smaller gatherings.
  • 00:15:28.280 --> 00:15:31.010
  • We did a world tour, it's my first involvement
  • 00:15:31.020 --> 00:15:33.140
  • with Passion 2008.
  • 00:15:33.150 --> 00:15:35.120
  • We went to 17 different cities around the world.
  • 00:15:35.130 --> 00:15:38.260
  • We had one in Kampala, Uganda, 20.000 college students.
  • 00:15:38.270 --> 00:15:41.270
  • That 360 moment was powerful.
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:43.220
  • Skip: Really?
  • 00:15:43.230 --> 00:15:45.130
  • Brad: We went straight from there to Paris, 900 to 1.000
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:47.230
  • students, but it was massive for them 'cause they did not know
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:51.070
  • 900 college students followed Jesus in their city.
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:54.090
  • Skip: In the country.
  • 00:15:54.100 --> 00:15:55.250
  • Brad: And so, that 360 moment was just as powerful for them.
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:57.200
  • So, it's not necessarily about the numbers.
  • 00:15:57.210 --> 00:15:59.280
  • It is, but it's not, it's just the--
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:02.020
  • Skip: So, do you sort of highlight that in those events?
  • 00:16:02.030 --> 00:16:03.260
  • Do you say, "Take a minute and look around.
  • 00:16:03.270 --> 00:16:05.140
  • Get this moment, this 360 moment"?
  • 00:16:05.150 --> 00:16:07.160
  • You kind of define it for them?
  • 00:16:07.170 --> 00:16:09.010
  • Brad: Absolutely. Skip: That's great.
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:10.170
  • Brad: And that's really the heart.
  • 00:16:10.180 --> 00:16:12.020
  • We believe God's given us the platform to gather.
  • 00:16:12.030 --> 00:16:13.260
  • And there's just power, and people are coming
  • 00:16:13.270 --> 00:16:16.110
  • from different streams, different denominations,
  • 00:16:16.120 --> 00:16:19.030
  • different churches, but they can come together
  • 00:16:19.040 --> 00:16:20.270
  • and say it's about one name.
  • 00:16:20.280 --> 00:16:22.170
  • It's about Jesus.
  • 00:16:22.180 --> 00:16:24.190
  • And that's really when we feel like--
  • 00:16:24.200 --> 00:16:26.020
  • Skip: All the other names, all the titles,
  • 00:16:26.030 --> 00:16:27.240
  • all the denominations, who cares?
  • 00:16:27.250 --> 00:16:30.050
  • At that point, in that event, you get a taste of heaven,
  • 00:16:30.060 --> 00:16:32.270
  • do you not?
  • 00:16:32.280 --> 00:16:34.130
  • Brad: Absolutely.
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:36.030
  • And that's what college students are looking for.
  • 00:16:36.040 --> 00:16:37.170
  • They're not into the denominations,
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:39.000
  • they're not into--they probably don't even know,
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:41.130
  • honestly, a lot of the different theologies
  • 00:16:41.140 --> 00:16:43.220
  • in a church, but they just are looking
  • 00:16:43.230 --> 00:16:45.170
  • for something real.
  • 00:16:45.180 --> 00:16:47.040
  • And they're just--they're not looking for division,
  • 00:16:47.050 --> 00:16:48.240
  • they're looking for unity around the name of Jesus.
  • 00:16:48.250 --> 00:16:52.060
  • Skip: Now, back to our passage in Isaiah 14,
  • 00:16:52.070 --> 00:16:55.040
  • did you notice the 16th verse?
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:57.130
  • It says, "Those who see you will gaze at you and consider you,
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:17:02.040
  • saying, 'Is this the one?'"
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:04.030
  • Translated here, "The man who made the earth tremble,
  • 00:17:04.040 --> 00:17:07.190
  • who shook kingdoms, who made the world as a wilderness
  • 00:17:07.200 --> 00:17:10.220
  • and destroyed its cities, who did not open the house
  • 00:17:10.230 --> 00:17:13.170
  • of the prisoners?"
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:15.120
  • The reader here gets the impression that there will be
  • 00:17:15.130 --> 00:17:19.040
  • a day when we are allowed to have some kind of viewing
  • 00:17:19.050 --> 00:17:23.290
  • of the devil, some access to Satan.
  • 00:17:24.000 --> 00:17:26.030
  • And when we do, we'll be amazed at how limited he really is,
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:30.250
  • even how beautiful he really is.
  • 00:17:30.260 --> 00:17:34.060
  • Remember what it said in Ezekiel 28,
  • 00:17:34.070 --> 00:17:36.220
  • "You are--you are perfect in beauty."
  • 00:17:36.230 --> 00:17:40.230
  • We have a misconception that because Satan is evil,
  • 00:17:40.240 --> 00:17:44.060
  • he must therefore be ugly.
  • 00:17:44.070 --> 00:17:48.050
  • But if that were true, we wouldn't be tempted.
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:52.230
  • If evil were ugly, we would never be tempted.
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:56.020
  • We are tempted because evil looks so alluring
  • 00:17:56.030 --> 00:17:58.240
  • and so beautiful.
  • 00:17:58.250 --> 00:18:00.170
  • That's the draw, man, right?
  • 00:18:00.180 --> 00:18:05.210
  • We're going to look at him and go, "That's the dude?
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:09.130
  • That's the guy who caused all of the heartache?
  • 00:18:09.140 --> 00:18:12.280
  • Him?"
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:15.230
  • I mentioned the Wizard of Oz, you remember the scene
  • 00:18:15.240 --> 00:18:17.250
  • in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy and Toto and the gang
  • 00:18:17.260 --> 00:18:20.250
  • show up at the palace of the great Oz?
  • 00:18:20.260 --> 00:18:23.260
  • And that big moving head on the wall speaks,
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:26.100
  • "I am the great Oz."
  • 00:18:26.110 --> 00:18:29.160
  • And a big fireball comes out, and then they cower back.
  • 00:18:29.170 --> 00:18:32.200
  • And just then, Toto the dog goes over and pulls back the curtain,
  • 00:18:32.210 --> 00:18:36.170
  • and there's this little old man hunched back with a microphone.
  • 00:18:36.180 --> 00:18:39.290
  • And he notices them and says, "Pay no attention to
  • 00:18:40.000 --> 00:18:43.170
  • that man behind the curtain."
  • 00:18:43.180 --> 00:18:46.100
  • See, what we discover is the great and powerful Oz
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:49.090
  • is just a dude from Omaha.
  • 00:18:49.100 --> 00:18:54.120
  • I think it's going to be like that if indeed there is
  • 00:18:54.130 --> 00:18:57.110
  • a viewing and we see this Lucifer, this Satan,
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:19:02.290
  • this god of this world as he is called, is just a fallen angel
  • 00:19:03.000 --> 00:19:09.020
  • who has been very, very powerful in his work.
  • 00:19:09.030 --> 00:19:12.010
  • His dwelling was in heaven, his domain is on the earth,
  • 00:19:12.020 --> 00:19:14.190
  • his destiny will be in hell.
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:16.160
  • Now, let's consider, as we close, why?
  • 00:19:16.170 --> 00:19:20.200
  • What was the problem? What was the essence?
  • 00:19:20.210 --> 00:19:24.020
  • Since this is a crash and burn series and we don't want
  • 00:19:24.030 --> 00:19:26.010
  • to repeat anybody's mistakes if they're the wrong choices,
  • 00:19:26.020 --> 00:19:29.030
  • let's look at why.
  • 00:19:29.040 --> 00:19:31.030
  • Verse 13, "For," or because, "how are you fallen from heaven,
  • 00:19:31.040 --> 00:19:36.240
  • O Lucifer?
  • 00:19:36.250 --> 00:19:38.130
  • You've been cast down to the earth for," or because,
  • 00:19:38.140 --> 00:19:41.000
  • "you have said in your heart," now we're hearing
  • 00:19:41.010 --> 00:19:45.090
  • the innermost thoughts of Lucifer.
  • 00:19:45.100 --> 00:19:48.090
  • This is what made him Satan.
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:49.280
  • "You said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven.
  • 00:19:49.290 --> 00:19:53.080
  • I will exalt my throne above the stars of God.
  • 00:19:53.090 --> 00:19:56.040
  • I will sit on the mount of the congregation
  • 00:19:56.050 --> 00:19:58.090
  • on the farthest sides of the north.
  • 00:19:58.100 --> 00:19:59.250
  • I will ascend above the heights of the clouds.
  • 00:19:59.260 --> 00:20:02.130
  • I will be like the Most High.'
  • 00:20:02.140 --> 00:20:07.200
  • Yet you will be brought down to Sheol,
  • 00:20:07.210 --> 00:20:10.290
  • to the lowest depths of the pit."
  • 00:20:11.000 --> 00:20:17.170
  • This brings up a question.
  • 00:20:17.180 --> 00:20:19.140
  • Where did sin begin?
  • 00:20:19.150 --> 00:20:22.200
  • If you say, "Oh, it began in Genesis chapter 3,"
  • 00:20:22.210 --> 00:20:25.030
  • I would say that's a wrong answer.
  • 00:20:25.040 --> 00:20:27.230
  • That's the Fall of man.
  • 00:20:27.240 --> 00:20:29.170
  • That's where Adam's sin began.
  • 00:20:29.180 --> 00:20:32.020
  • Those are the repercussions we all feel.
  • 00:20:32.030 --> 00:20:35.060
  • But that's not where sin began.
  • 00:20:35.070 --> 00:20:37.040
  • Sin began in the heart of Lucifer.
  • 00:20:37.050 --> 00:20:40.000
  • It began in his thought processes, when he said these--
  • 00:20:40.010 --> 00:20:43.210
  • I was going to say famous, but infamous I wills.
  • 00:20:43.220 --> 00:20:47.120
  • "I will, I will, my will, my will, my will
  • 00:20:47.130 --> 00:20:51.120
  • above God's will."
  • 00:20:51.130 --> 00:20:52.230
  • Sin began when a creature set itself against the creator.
  • 00:20:52.240 --> 00:20:57.080
  • And the essence of that sin, the root of it all is pride, pride.
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:21:03.050
  • No wonder the Bible says God resists the proud,
  • 00:21:03.060 --> 00:21:08.220
  • but he gives grace to the humble.
  • 00:21:08.230 --> 00:21:10.280
  • Pride is the oldest sin in the universe,
  • 00:21:10.290 --> 00:21:13.210
  • and it shows no signs of weakening with age.
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:18.040
  • Still a problem.
  • 00:21:18.050 --> 00:21:20.090
  • Like that cowboy from Texas who was visiting Niagara Falls,
  • 00:21:20.100 --> 00:21:24.250
  • and his host, his buddy in New York knew
  • 00:21:24.260 --> 00:21:27.080
  • that, you know, everything's bigger and better in Texas,
  • 00:21:27.090 --> 00:21:29.160
  • but they don't have anything like this.
  • 00:21:29.170 --> 00:21:31.080
  • So, he said, "Hey, cowboy, do you have a faucet
  • 00:21:31.090 --> 00:21:33.140
  • that big in Texas?"
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:35.250
  • Cowboy said, "No, but we got plumbers who can fix it."
  • 00:21:35.260 --> 00:21:40.290
  • Yeah, whatever.
  • 00:21:41.000 --> 00:21:44.010
  • Pride has always been a problem.
  • 00:21:44.020 --> 00:21:47.150
  • And because of the pride of Lucifer, he goes
  • 00:21:47.160 --> 00:21:51.040
  • from the shining one, the angel of light,
  • 00:21:51.050 --> 00:21:55.220
  • to the prince of darkness because of pride.
  • 00:21:55.230 --> 00:21:57.200
  • His desire was to be on the throne; his destiny is
  • 00:21:57.210 --> 00:22:00.100
  • to be in the pit.
  • 00:22:00.110 --> 00:22:01.260
  • His ambition is to go up to the heights; his destination
  • 00:22:01.270 --> 00:22:05.020
  • will be in the depths.
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:08.140
  • Now, what a difference, what a contrast this is to our Savior,
  • 00:22:08.150 --> 00:22:15.150
  • the Lord Jesus Christ, who said, "I'm going to go down.
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:19.290
  • I'm going to humble myself."
  • 00:22:20.000 --> 00:22:21.160
  • Philippians says, "Who being in the same likeness,
  • 00:22:21.170 --> 00:22:25.050
  • the form of God, being God himself, he emptied himself.
  • 00:22:25.060 --> 00:22:30.000
  • He poured himself out.
  • 00:22:30.010 --> 00:22:31.130
  • He took upon himself the form of a servant and came like a man."
  • 00:22:31.140 --> 00:22:37.220
  • And then it says, "Wherefore God has highly exalted him and given
  • 00:22:37.230 --> 00:22:41.080
  • him a name which is above every name, that at the name
  • 00:22:41.090 --> 00:22:43.070
  • of Jesus Christ, every knee should bow
  • 00:22:43.080 --> 00:22:45.120
  • and every tongue should confess."
  • 00:22:45.130 --> 00:22:46.290
  • See the difference? Satan says, "I'm going up."
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:51.070
  • God says, "No, you're going down."
  • 00:22:51.080 --> 00:22:53.140
  • Jesus said, "Father, I will go down."
  • 00:22:53.150 --> 00:22:57.280
  • And the Father said, "Therefore, I will exalt you."
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:23:02.030
  • So, the way down is up. The way up is down.
  • 00:23:02.040 --> 00:23:09.280
  • Get down, lower yourself.
  • 00:23:09.290 --> 00:23:11.230
  • "Humble yourself," the Bible says,
  • 00:23:11.240 --> 00:23:13.130
  • "underneath the mighty hand of God
  • 00:23:13.140 --> 00:23:15.160
  • and he will exalt you in due time."
  • 00:23:15.170 --> 00:23:18.190
  • Go low.
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:20.130
  • Don't do this, "Do you know who I am?"
  • 00:23:20.140 --> 00:23:26.200
  • Go low.
  • 00:23:26.210 --> 00:23:28.240
  • Listen, if God hates pride and if pride is a barrier
  • 00:23:28.250 --> 00:23:31.180
  • to God's blessing, then what's the antidote?
  • 00:23:31.190 --> 00:23:35.120
  • Be humble. Be humble.
  • 00:23:35.130 --> 00:23:38.250
  • Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God.
  • 00:23:38.260 --> 00:23:44.020
  • I'm going to close by giving you four exercises you can do
  • 00:23:44.030 --> 00:23:47.200
  • every day if you wish that will cultivate humility in you
  • 00:23:47.210 --> 00:23:51.190
  • and be the antidote to pride we all face.
  • 00:23:51.200 --> 00:23:54.090
  • We all face it.
  • 00:23:54.100 --> 00:23:55.260
  • So, are there things I can do
  • 00:23:55.270 --> 00:23:57.210
  • that will help cultivate humility?
  • 00:23:57.220 --> 00:24:00.220
  • Let me suggest four. Number one, prayer, prayer.
  • 00:24:00.230 --> 00:24:05.180
  • When you pray, you're depending on God.
  • 00:24:05.190 --> 00:24:08.010
  • You're voicing your dependence on God.
  • 00:24:08.020 --> 00:24:09.170
  • You know why people don't pray?
  • 00:24:09.180 --> 00:24:12.080
  • 'Cause they don't think they need to.
  • 00:24:12.090 --> 00:24:14.230
  • "I got this, God. I don't need to pray about this.
  • 00:24:14.240 --> 00:24:17.000
  • This is so small. This is so--I can handle this."
  • 00:24:17.010 --> 00:24:20.290
  • And why is it that we have the attitude that says,
  • 00:24:21.000 --> 00:24:25.150
  • "There's nothing left to do except pray"?
  • 00:24:25.160 --> 00:24:30.020
  • Why didn't you start the day with that?
  • 00:24:30.030 --> 00:24:33.210
  • Pray about everything.
  • 00:24:33.220 --> 00:24:36.050
  • People don't pray because they're proud.
  • 00:24:36.060 --> 00:24:40.280
  • Prayer voices your dependence on God.
  • 00:24:40.290 --> 00:24:43.240
  • A second exercise, praise, worship.
  • 00:24:43.250 --> 00:24:47.260
  • When we worship, our focus is not on us, it's on God.
  • 00:24:47.270 --> 00:24:51.070
  • It's a selfless exercise.
  • 00:24:51.080 --> 00:24:54.060
  • Even when you sing a song, you shouldn't be thinking,
  • 00:24:54.070 --> 00:24:57.010
  • "I don't like this song.
  • 00:24:57.020 --> 00:24:58.200
  • This song's too loud."
  • 00:24:58.210 --> 00:25:00.050
  • It's not about you.
  • 00:25:00.060 --> 00:25:01.250
  • You're using the song to talk to him.
  • 00:25:01.260 --> 00:25:04.190
  • You're giving him your praise, you're focusing on him.
  • 00:25:04.200 --> 00:25:09.110
  • Prayer, praise or worship.
  • 00:25:09.120 --> 00:25:13.080
  • Here's the third exercise, it'll work, encouragement.
  • 00:25:13.090 --> 00:25:17.040
  • Find somebody and encourage them.
  • 00:25:17.050 --> 00:25:19.070
  • Give someone else words of encouragement, and lift them up,
  • 00:25:19.080 --> 00:25:22.060
  • and push them along.
  • 00:25:22.070 --> 00:25:23.270
  • Again, the focus now is not on you, but it's on others.
  • 00:25:23.280 --> 00:25:27.260
  • So, prayer, worship, encouragement,
  • 00:25:27.270 --> 00:25:30.190
  • and a fourth are acts of service, acts of service.
  • 00:25:30.200 --> 00:25:37.140
  • Perform a task that is not assigned to you.
  • 00:25:37.150 --> 00:25:43.100
  • "It's not my job. It's not in my job description.
  • 00:25:43.110 --> 00:25:47.000
  • It's below my pay grade."
  • 00:25:47.010 --> 00:25:49.290
  • Well, do it anyway and watch what happens.
  • 00:25:50.000 --> 00:25:53.020
  • As you not focus on you but you focus on serving somebody else,
  • 00:25:53.030 --> 00:25:57.140
  • watch what that does to you and does for you
  • 00:25:57.150 --> 00:26:00.190
  • as well as for others.
  • 00:26:00.200 --> 00:26:02.210
  • Prayer, worship, encouragement, acts of service.
  • 00:26:02.220 --> 00:26:08.060
  • D.L. Moody I think summed it up quite nicely.
  • 00:26:08.070 --> 00:26:11.270
  • "Be humble or you'll stumble."
  • 00:26:11.280 --> 00:26:16.050
  • Doesn't that wrap it all up beautifully?
  • 00:26:16.060 --> 00:26:18.030
  • Just sort of ties a bow on the whole thing.
  • 00:26:18.040 --> 00:26:20.030
  • It just sort of takes this whole message and boils it down
  • 00:26:20.040 --> 00:26:22.060
  • to one sentence.
  • 00:26:22.070 --> 00:26:23.180
  • You say, "Skip, you could've just began and ended
  • 00:26:23.190 --> 00:26:25.040
  • with that."
  • 00:26:25.050 --> 00:26:27.070
  • Be humble or you'll stumble.
  • 00:26:27.080 --> 00:26:31.020
  • 00:26:31.030 --> 00:26:38.080
  • Skip: Hi, I'm Skip Heitzig.
  • 00:26:38.090 --> 00:26:40.010
  • I believe that having a good understanding of the Bible
  • 00:26:40.020 --> 00:26:42.240
  • is important to us as believers.
  • 00:26:42.250 --> 00:26:45.160
