  • 00:09:43.798 --> 00:09:46.234
  • I kind of conflated that.
  • 00:09:46.267 --> 00:09:48.069
  • It's where we getthe word messiah.
  • 00:09:48.103 --> 00:09:50.071
  • People speak and rightlyso of Jesus the Messiah,
  • 00:09:50.105 --> 00:09:52.941
  • more commonly known asEnglish as Jesus Christ.
  • 00:09:52.974 --> 00:09:56.678
  • People think his father andmother are Mr. and Mrs. Christ,
  • 00:09:56.711 --> 00:10:01.349
  • that his birthcertificate read Christ,
  • 00:10:01.383 --> 00:10:03.852
  • J for Jesus, when actually theword Christ itself is a Greek
  • 00:10:03.885 --> 00:10:09.524
  • for the Hebrew,mashiach or messiah.
  • 00:10:09.557 --> 00:10:13.995
  • And the word messiahitself means anointed one.
  • 00:10:14.029 --> 00:10:19.734
  • So let's bring it together.
  • 00:10:19.768 --> 00:10:22.203
  • You saw the picture ofDavid who was anointed.
  • 00:10:22.237 --> 00:10:26.374
  • The prophet poured theanointing oil on his head,
  • 00:10:26.408 --> 00:10:32.547
  • and the rest is history.
  • 00:10:32.580 --> 00:10:36.351
  • Well, there weredifferent history makers
  • 00:10:36.384 --> 00:10:38.820
  • that were anointed.
  • 00:10:38.853 --> 00:10:40.622
  • Prophets wereanointed, kings, priests.
  • 00:10:40.655 --> 00:10:42.390
  • David himself here, of course,anointed in effect as king.
  • 00:10:42.424 --> 00:10:49.431
  • He in effect was a greatdeliverer in ancient Israel,
  • 00:10:49.464 --> 00:10:54.569
  • and his story is in the past.
  • 00:10:54.602 --> 00:10:57.472
  • But the one that he presagesbelongs to the future
  • 00:10:57.505 --> 00:11:02.444
  • in perpetuity.
  • 00:11:02.477 --> 00:11:04.913
  • And who am I referring to?
  • 00:11:04.946 --> 00:11:07.649
  • Jesus, called Yeshuaactually in Hebrew,
  • 00:11:07.682 --> 00:11:11.886
  • from a verb to save,to deliver, or to redeem.
  • 00:11:11.920 --> 00:11:18.226
  • This series is allabout deliverance.
  • 00:11:18.259 --> 00:11:23.431
  • And when I think of deliverance,there's the ultimate deliverer.
  • 00:11:23.465 --> 00:11:28.436
  • Oh, friends, this storytalks about David of the past.
  • 00:11:28.470 --> 00:11:32.607
  • But, you know, Jews sing,
  • 00:11:32.640 --> 00:11:36.377
  • [speaking in Hebrew],
  • 00:11:36.411 --> 00:11:38.246
  • David the king ofIsrael lives forever.
  • 00:11:38.279 --> 00:11:40.782
  • Now, he's remembered forever.
  • 00:11:40.815 --> 00:11:43.651
  • Even the star that is theStar of David that is affixed
  • 00:11:43.685 --> 00:11:46.554
  • to Jewish jewelry and to theflag of Israel itself reminds us
  • 00:11:46.588 --> 00:11:51.893
  • of the triumphs ofDavid in days gone by.
  • 00:11:51.926 --> 00:11:56.931
  • But saying David lives forever;he doesn't just live in memory,
  • 00:11:56.965 --> 00:12:01.736
  • he doesn't just inspirea kind of confidence.
  • 00:12:01.770 --> 00:12:05.206
  • But if the biblicaltestimony, both testaments,
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:08.476
  • is to be taken seriously,David lives forever because
  • 00:12:08.510 --> 00:12:12.547
  • that energy, that anointing ispersonified in the person
  • 00:12:12.580 --> 00:12:18.553
  • who lives forever, who died.
  • 00:12:18.586 --> 00:12:21.589
  • He was crucified, buried, andthree days later that anointed
  • 00:12:21.623 --> 00:12:27.328
  • one rose from the dead.
  • 00:12:27.362 --> 00:12:30.131
  • This deliverer who lives tomake intercession for us,
  • 00:12:30.165 --> 00:12:34.335
  • this deliverer whofacilitates a great deliverance,
  • 00:12:34.369 --> 00:12:40.842
  • he himself wasdelivered from death,
  • 00:12:40.875 --> 00:12:43.144
  • and right into the future hedelivers us from death as well.

  • David: Right nowlet's go back to our drama,
  • 00:13:41.202 --> 00:13:42.937
  • where David's lineagebrings forth the Messiah.
  • 00:13:42.971 --> 00:13:46.908
  • male: Matthew 1, the book ofthe generation of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:13:48.142 --> 00:13:53.514
  • the son of David,the son of Abraham.
  • 00:13:53.548 --> 00:13:57.719
  • All of the generations toDavid are 14 generations.
  • 00:13:57.752 --> 00:14:03.691
  • From David until the carryingaway into Babylon are
  • 00:14:03.725 --> 00:14:08.630
  • 14 generations, and from thecarrying away into Babylon
  • 00:14:08.663 --> 00:14:13.835
  • unto Christ are 14 generations.
  • 00:14:13.868 --> 00:14:18.840
  • "And in the sixth month,the angel Gabriel was sent
  • 00:14:18.873 --> 00:14:23.845
  • from God unto a city of Galilee,named Nazareth,
  • 00:14:23.878 --> 00:14:28.182
  • to a virgin, a spouse to a manwhose name was Joseph of the
  • 00:14:28.216 --> 00:14:32.687
  • house of David, and thevirgin's name was Mary.
  • 00:14:32.720 --> 00:14:39.460
  • And the angel came inunder her and said,
  • 00:14:39.494 --> 00:14:41.696
  • 'Hail thou art highly favored.
  • 00:14:41.729 --> 00:14:44.933
  • The Lord is with thee.
  • 00:14:44.966 --> 00:14:46.734
  • Blessed art thou among women.
  • 00:14:46.768 --> 00:14:48.836
  • Fear not, Mary, for thouhas found favor with God.
  • 00:14:48.870 --> 00:14:53.908
  • And behold, thou shalt conceivein thy womb and bring forth
  • 00:14:53.942 --> 00:14:57.946
  • a son and shallcall his name Jesus.
  • 00:14:57.979 --> 00:15:01.582
  • He shall be great and shall becalled the son of the highest,
  • 00:15:01.616 --> 00:15:06.287
  • and the Lord God shall give untohim the throne of his father
  • 00:15:06.321 --> 00:15:09.257
  • David and he shall reign overthe house of Jacob forever.
  • 00:15:09.290 --> 00:15:10.658
  • And of his kingdom,there shall be no end.'"
  • 00:15:10.692 --> 00:15:14.062
  • Jeffrey: We began thisprogram with women
  • 00:15:17.832 --> 00:15:22.270
  • celebrating David.
  • 00:15:22.303 --> 00:15:24.405
  • Well, that's just aforetaste of a glory divine.
  • 00:15:24.439 --> 00:15:29.043
  • I mention thisbecause the angel Gabriele,
  • 00:15:29.077 --> 00:15:32.246
  • meaning "my strength,"comes to the royal couple.
  • 00:15:32.280 --> 00:15:37.051
  • Well, they'repeasant stock to be sure,
  • 00:15:37.085 --> 00:15:38.720
  • but they're going to givebirth to the King of kings.
  • 00:15:38.753 --> 00:15:41.189
  • And speaks thatthrough their son,
  • 00:15:41.222 --> 00:15:44.425
  • the anointed one, adescendant of David,
  • 00:15:44.459 --> 00:15:47.762
  • will come one whosekingdom there will be no end.
  • 00:15:47.795 --> 00:15:51.165
  • Now, that's cause to celebrate.
  • 00:15:51.199 --> 00:15:54.535
  • By way of contrast, it'sworth noting that Miriam,
  • 00:15:54.569 --> 00:15:58.439
  • Mary, comes from Hebrew Maryom,which means "sea of bitterness"
  • 00:15:58.473 --> 00:16:06.514
  • or "sea of sorrows."
  • 00:16:06.547 --> 00:16:08.583
  • Mar is bitterness,and yom is sea.
  • 00:16:08.616 --> 00:16:10.952
  • Well, talk about--her lifegranted that she had
  • 00:16:10.985 --> 00:16:15.089
  • the sorrowful ofexperience of being,
  • 00:16:15.123 --> 00:16:19.327
  • no doubt, criticized forbeing pregnant before marriage.
  • 00:16:19.360 --> 00:16:23.431
  • You know, a littlebit of a scandal there.
  • 00:16:23.464 --> 00:16:25.933
  • And similarly, she had the pain,the carry of watching her son
  • 00:16:25.967 --> 00:16:30.972
  • come to an inglorious end.
  • 00:16:31.005 --> 00:16:34.509
  • She's there at the cross withthe Lord and there's sorrow,
  • 00:16:34.542 --> 00:16:38.579
  • but, you know, thatsorrow was turned to joy,
  • 00:16:38.613 --> 00:16:40.415
  • and it's not just somethingthat happened to the mother.
  • 00:16:40.448 --> 00:16:44.452
  • It can happen to the other,and I'm talking to people
  • 00:16:44.485 --> 00:16:48.956
  • like me and you.
  • 00:16:48.990 --> 00:16:51.592
  • I'll look at the Martian text.
  • 00:16:51.626 --> 00:16:54.495
  • We're told in verse 20of the first chapter,
  • 00:16:54.529 --> 00:16:57.632
  • that an angel, a messenger came.
  • 00:16:57.665 --> 00:17:01.002
  • The angel, by the way, in Lukechapter 1:26 is named Gabriele.
  • 00:17:01.035 --> 00:17:04.205
  • I like to conflate thetestimonies to get
  • 00:17:04.238 --> 00:17:06.541
  • all the information.
  • 00:17:06.574 --> 00:17:08.209
  • The angel of the Lord appearsto Yosef in a dream and says,
  • 00:17:08.242 --> 00:17:12.613
  • "Joseph, son of David--"
  • 00:17:12.647 --> 00:17:15.850
  • You know, he was of peasantstock, but he's descended
  • 00:17:15.883 --> 00:17:19.153
  • from a king.
  • 00:17:19.187 --> 00:17:21.155
  • And by the way, parentheticallythat's what happens.
  • 00:17:21.189 --> 00:17:23.758
  • You and I can have veryhumble circumstances.
  • 00:17:23.791 --> 00:17:25.827
  • We're born again.
  • 00:17:25.860 --> 00:17:27.962
  • We're descended from a king.
  • 00:17:27.995 --> 00:17:29.964
  • We're inputted withhis genetic code,
  • 00:17:29.997 --> 00:17:32.366
  • descended from greatness.
  • 00:17:32.400 --> 00:17:35.336
  • I think we do well to live it.
  • 00:17:35.369 --> 00:17:36.971
  • Well, he says,"Joseph, son of David,
  • 00:17:37.004 --> 00:17:39.040
  • don't be afraid to take Miriam."
  • 00:17:39.073 --> 00:17:41.476
  • He goes on to note that thechild within her has been
  • 00:17:41.509 --> 00:17:43.911
  • conceived by theRuach ha-Kodesh.
  • 00:17:43.945 --> 00:17:48.916
  • "She will give birth toa son, and you shall call
  • 00:17:48.950 --> 00:17:53.321
  • his name Yeshua," or Jesus.
  • 00:17:53.354 --> 00:17:56.424
  • And then there's a conjunction;"For he shall save his people
  • 00:17:56.457 --> 00:18:02.597
  • from their sins.
  • 00:18:02.630 --> 00:18:04.532
  • Conjunctions: and,but, or, for, or nor.
  • 00:18:04.565 --> 00:18:07.235
  • It's joined here, and I mentionthis because absent to an
  • 00:18:07.268 --> 00:18:09.737
  • understanding of the Hebrewit doesn't really make sense.
  • 00:18:09.770 --> 00:18:12.940
  • "You shall call hisname Yeshua,"
  • 00:18:12.974 --> 00:18:15.510
  • which in Hebrewmeans deliverer.
  • 00:18:15.543 --> 00:18:18.913
  • He says, "You shallcall his name Yeshua,
  • 00:18:18.946 --> 00:18:22.550
  • for he will deliver hispeople from their sins."
  • 00:18:22.583 --> 00:18:29.190
  • See, by understandingthe Jewish background,
  • 00:18:29.223 --> 00:18:33.294
  • it brings something forth thatwouldn't otherwise be there.
  • 00:18:33.327 --> 00:18:37.498
  • I think you can look at theBible without understanding
  • 00:18:37.532 --> 00:18:41.502
  • the Jewish roots andit's like looking at it
  • 00:18:41.536 --> 00:18:44.238
  • in black and white.
  • 00:18:44.272 --> 00:18:46.174
  • It's dramatic and it's great.
  • 00:18:46.207 --> 00:18:47.675
  • But when you look at theJewish background to it,
  • 00:18:47.708 --> 00:18:49.677
  • it brings itforth in technicolor.
  • 00:18:49.710 --> 00:18:51.179
  • It gives it views and use, whichwouldn't otherwise be there,
  • 00:18:51.212 --> 00:18:56.350
  • and that's our trademark.
  • 00:18:56.384 --> 00:18:58.586
  • You know whatJesus's trademark is?
  • 00:18:58.619 --> 00:19:02.023
  • Forgiving people of their sins.
  • 00:19:02.056 --> 00:19:07.461
  • There is nothing you've donethat can exempt you
  • 00:19:07.495 --> 00:19:14.502
  • from the opportunity to geta fresh start and a new life.
  • 00:19:14.535 --> 00:19:19.106
  • I want to speak slowly,deliberately, and gently.
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:25.313
  • People go through life.
  • 00:19:25.346 --> 00:19:28.015
  • They carry shame and guiltand other concomitants to that,
  • 00:19:28.049 --> 00:19:33.521
  • things that weigh them down.
  • 00:19:33.554 --> 00:19:36.524
  • In their life, there's little,if any, cause to celebrate.
  • 00:19:36.557 --> 00:19:39.594
  • I want to know that God canchange your mourning into
  • 00:19:39.627 --> 00:19:44.298
  • gladness, and that comes aboutby your experience with the
  • 00:19:44.332 --> 00:19:50.037
  • anointed one; the delivererhimself who came not just to die
  • 00:19:50.071 --> 00:19:55.476
  • for the sins of the world,but to save you in the world;
  • 00:19:55.509 --> 00:19:59.981
  • not just so you canhave life after death,
  • 00:20:00.014 --> 00:20:02.783
  • but so that you canexperience life before death,
  • 00:20:02.817 --> 00:20:07.622
  • a new life invigorated withthe power of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:20:07.655 --> 00:20:11.892
  • and a clear conscience.
  • 00:20:11.926 --> 00:20:13.961
  • Kirsten: Jeff just talkedabout God turning our mourning
  • 00:20:16.397 --> 00:20:20.534
  • into gladness and into dancing.
  • 00:20:20.568 --> 00:20:23.504
  • That's a joyful way to lookat David's story and his life.
  • 00:20:23.537 --> 00:20:26.574
  • Jeffrey: It really is.
  • 00:20:26.607 --> 00:20:27.908
  • And I'm so thankful thatGod turned my mourning
  • 00:20:27.942 --> 00:20:30.711
  • into gladness.
  • 00:20:30.745 --> 00:20:32.046
  • And you know howhe did that for me?
  • 00:20:32.079 --> 00:20:33.381
  • There's different ways.
  • 00:20:33.414 --> 00:20:34.715
  • My first wife, mayshe rest in peace,
  • 00:20:34.749 --> 00:20:37.251
  • we were married 30 years,and she died of cancer.
  • 00:20:37.285 --> 00:20:40.921
  • And when the Lordbrought Barri into my life,
  • 00:20:40.955 --> 00:20:43.057
  • he really turned mymourning into gladness.
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:45.359
  • I was 60; Barri was 62.
  • 00:20:45.393 --> 00:20:47.862
  • She'd never married,and honest to goodness
  • 00:20:47.895 --> 00:20:50.665
  • I am just so thrilled.
  • 00:20:50.698 --> 00:20:52.433
  • The Lord brings people intoour lives to help turn that
  • 00:20:52.466 --> 00:20:56.070
  • mourning into gladness.
  • 00:20:56.103 --> 00:20:57.405
  • And that's probably morepersonal than one would expect
  • 00:20:57.438 --> 00:20:59.640
  • for television, but God doesthings to people personally
  • 00:20:59.674 --> 00:21:02.977
  • to turn it around, and he'sin the business of doing
  • 00:21:03.010 --> 00:21:06.781
  • that even today.
  • 00:21:06.814 --> 00:21:08.249
  • David: That's right.
  • 00:21:08.282 --> 00:21:09.583
  • It's so much of David'slife that I want to relate
  • 00:21:09.617 --> 00:21:13.220
  • to as you teach.
  • 00:21:13.254 --> 00:21:14.555
  • He was a shepherd boy.
  • 00:21:14.588 --> 00:21:15.890
  • He was faithful to God,not always.
  • 00:21:15.923 --> 00:21:18.092
  • Jeffrey: Andspeaking of David,
  • 00:21:18.125 --> 00:21:19.694
  • did the Lord use this Davidto turn your mourning into
  • 00:21:19.727 --> 00:21:22.630
  • gladness, by the way?
  • 00:21:22.663 --> 00:21:23.964
  • Kirsten: I wasn'tmourning too bad,
  • 00:21:23.998 --> 00:21:25.299
  • but there was a lot ofgladness, a lot of gladness.
  • 00:21:25.333 --> 00:21:28.869
  • Jeffrey: You've been singingand celebrating for 30 years.
  • 00:21:28.903 --> 00:21:30.971
  • Kirsten: Thirty years.
  • 00:21:31.005 --> 00:21:32.306
  • I know.Yay.
  • 00:21:32.340 --> 00:21:33.808
  • And it's interesting.
  • 00:21:33.841 --> 00:21:35.142
  • You look at King David,he had some rough days.
  • 00:21:35.176 --> 00:21:38.379
  • I mean, the guilt that he hadprobably with the situation
  • 00:21:38.412 --> 00:21:42.616
  • with Bathsheba, his sonsand the relationship he had
  • 00:21:42.650 --> 00:21:45.886
  • with his boys.
  • 00:21:45.920 --> 00:21:47.388
  • He really did liveout that mourning,
  • 00:21:47.421 --> 00:21:49.957
  • but yet Goddelivered him into gladness.
  • 00:21:49.990 --> 00:21:51.292
  • Jeffrey: It's a great point,and you guys are known for them.
  • 00:21:51.325 --> 00:21:53.494
  • It's true.
  • 00:21:53.527 --> 00:21:54.829
  • His life wasn't an easy life.
  • 00:21:54.862 --> 00:21:56.263
  • You know, we readthrough it in the pages,
  • 00:21:56.297 --> 00:21:58.265
  • and you can get throughhis life in a few minutes.
  • 00:21:58.299 --> 00:22:00.134
  • But when you just walkthrough it incrementally,
  • 00:22:00.167 --> 00:22:02.203
  • he carried theseburdens for years.
  • 00:22:02.236 --> 00:22:04.338
  • You know, faith walk is a walkand--but thanks be to God for
  • 00:22:04.372 --> 00:22:08.476
  • God, he leads us through it all.
  • 00:22:08.509 --> 00:22:10.478
  • Kirsten: And without himwe wouldn't have had Yeshua.
  • 00:22:10.511 --> 00:22:12.279
  • Jeffrey: No,we wouldn't have.
  • 00:22:12.313 --> 00:22:14.248
  • And with him, I havehope in that.
  • 00:22:14.281 --> 00:22:15.983
  • I realize that Godloves human beings,
  • 00:22:16.016 --> 00:22:19.019
  • foibles, and all to your point.
  • 00:22:19.053 --> 00:22:21.055
  • And to your life and our life,it's easy to feel ashamed to get
  • 00:22:21.088 --> 00:22:24.158
  • down and guiltybecause we're human beings.
  • 00:22:24.191 --> 00:22:26.727
  • And when I look at David,I see a human being.
  • 00:22:26.761 --> 00:22:28.863
  • And I'm not out committingadultery and murder on top,
  • 00:22:28.896 --> 00:22:31.732
  • but I'm just glad to knowthere's a gracious God that see
  • 00:22:31.766 --> 00:22:35.836
  • something in me because I don'talways show him the best of me.
  • 00:22:35.870 --> 00:22:38.506
  • And thank God for his mercies.Amen?
  • 00:22:38.539 --> 00:22:41.208
  • David: EvenDavid in his story.
  • 00:22:41.242 --> 00:22:42.710
  • Without God, I don't thinkwe'd even have this story.
  • 00:22:42.743 --> 00:22:46.380
  • Jeffrey: No.
  • 00:22:46.414 --> 00:22:47.715
  • 'Cause it's not just David'sdint of determination, you know.
  • 00:22:47.748 --> 00:22:50.451
  • And I'm all about--youknow, I've raised boys.
  • 00:22:50.484 --> 00:22:52.920
  • "Throw yourselfagainst the future.
  • 00:22:52.953 --> 00:22:54.255
  • Be bold.
  • 00:22:54.288 --> 00:22:55.589
  • [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 00:22:55.623 --> 00:22:56.924
  • Be strong."
  • 00:22:56.957 --> 00:22:58.259
  • And David has that as hekeeps reaching forward,
  • 00:22:58.292 --> 00:22:59.627
  • but he has more than hisown dog of determination.
  • 00:22:59.660 --> 00:23:00.961
  • He has a God who loves him,who has a divine intention
  • 00:23:00.995 --> 00:23:04.198
  • and working through him.
  • 00:23:04.231 --> 00:23:05.699
  • Kirsten: Thatgives us hope today.
  • 00:23:05.733 --> 00:23:07.368
  • Your teaching gives us hope.
  • 00:23:07.401 --> 00:23:10.104
  • The life of David gives ushope that we can still be people
  • 00:23:10.137 --> 00:23:12.306
  • after God's own heart evenwith our faults and downfalls.
  • 00:23:12.339 --> 00:23:14.975
  • Jeffrey: Amen.And thank you for that.
  • 00:23:15.009 --> 00:23:16.777
  • And if my teaching giveshope, it's only by virtue
  • 00:23:16.811 --> 00:23:18.679

  • 00:23:18.712 --> 00:23:20.815
