  • And when they have beenawakened, and born again,

  • If they wereto be totally honest,

  • they would say Jesusis more of an acquaintance
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:23.783
  • is more of an acquaintancethan He is a relationship.
  • 00:03:23.783 --> 00:03:25.718
  • than He is a relationship.That I have an acquaintance
  • 00:03:25.718 --> 00:03:27.787
  • That I have an acquaintancewith Him once every week,
  • 00:03:27.787 --> 00:03:29.555

  • but that's pretty much it.That's about all that we have.
  • 00:03:35.795 --> 00:03:36.963
  • That's about all that we have.The second chair
  • 00:03:36.963 --> 00:03:40.266
  • The second chairis the chair of compromise.
  • 00:03:40.266 --> 00:03:43.503

  • the person in it hasa spiritual nature.
  • 00:03:49.876 --> 00:03:51.411

  • 00:03:51.411 --> 00:03:52.745
  • But the second personin the second chair --
  • 00:03:52.745 --> 00:03:54.380

  • The Bible saidthey're in a natural state.
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:22.175
  • they're in a natural state.Paul uses all three of these

  • fleshly, worldly.And then natural,
  • 00:04:29.582 --> 00:04:30.650
  • And then natural,meaning they've only
  • 00:04:30.650 --> 00:04:33.086
  • meaning they've onlybeen born once.
  • 00:04:33.086 --> 00:04:35.621

  • So they live a lifeof compromise.
  • 00:05:42.655 --> 00:05:43.322
  • of compromise.And then there's people
  • 00:05:43.322 --> 00:05:45.558
  • And then there's peoplethat I'm preaching to today.
  • 00:05:45.558 --> 00:05:46.459
  • that I'm preaching to today.That are hearing me.
  • 00:05:46.459 --> 00:05:50.129
  • That are hearing me.That are absolutely in conflict
  • 00:05:50.129 --> 00:05:51.931
  • That are absolutely in conflictwith the Word of God.
  • 00:05:51.931 --> 00:05:52.832
  • with the Word of God.Their lifestyle.
  • 00:05:52.832 --> 00:05:54.267
  • Their lifestyle.Everything about them
  • 00:05:54.267 --> 00:05:58.171
  • Everything about themis void of God.
  • 00:05:58.171 --> 00:05:59.705
  • is void of God.That second person
  • 00:05:59.705 --> 00:06:02.341
  • That second personknows the Bible,
  • 00:06:02.341 --> 00:06:03.075
  • knows the Bible,but there's a difference
  • 00:06:03.075 --> 00:06:04.577
  • but there's a differencebetween the first chair
  • 00:06:04.577 --> 00:06:06.946
  • between the first chairand the second chair
  • 00:06:06.946 --> 00:06:09.182
  • and the second chairbecause they're not committed
  • 00:06:09.182 --> 00:06:12.618
  • because they're not committedto living the Bible.
  • 00:06:12.618 --> 00:06:14.520
  • to living the Bible.The third chair
  • 00:06:14.520 --> 00:06:15.388
  • The third chairdoes not confess
  • 00:06:15.388 --> 00:06:17.957
  • does not confessto be a Christian.
  • 00:06:17.957 --> 00:06:19.659
  • to be a Christian.The person in that chair
  • 00:06:19.659 --> 00:06:20.393
  • The person in that chairdoesn't walk
  • 00:06:20.393 --> 00:06:24.263
  • doesn't walkin a relationship with God.
  • 00:06:24.263 --> 00:06:26.866
  • in a relationship with God.They're in a natural state.
  • 00:06:26.866 --> 00:06:28.134
  • They're in a natural state.There's a spiritual state,
  • 00:06:28.134 --> 00:06:29.368
  • There's a spiritual state,a carnal state,
  • 00:06:29.368 --> 00:06:32.772
  • a carnal state,and a natural state.
  • 00:06:32.772 --> 00:06:36.075
  • and a natural state.And you're in one of three
  • 00:06:36.075 --> 00:06:38.044
  • And you're in one of threeof these chairs.
  • 00:06:38.044 --> 00:06:39.846
  • of these chairs.When I think about these chairs
  • 00:06:39.846 --> 00:06:40.813
  • When I think about these chairsand every one of you
  • 00:06:40.813 --> 00:06:41.814
  • and every one of youthat are hearing me --
  • 00:06:41.814 --> 00:06:44.884
  • that are hearing me --including myself --
  • 00:06:44.884 --> 00:06:45.418
  • including myself --I couldn't help
  • 00:06:45.418 --> 00:06:47.987
  • I couldn't helpbut think of Joshua
  • 00:06:47.987 --> 00:06:48.654
  • but think of Joshuaand how committed
  • 00:06:48.654 --> 00:06:50.823
  • and how committedhe was to the Lord.
  • 00:06:50.823 --> 00:06:52.625
  • he was to the Lord.The Bible said that Joshua
  • 00:06:52.625 --> 00:06:53.659
  • The Bible said that Joshuathis day stood
  • 00:06:53.659 --> 00:06:54.727
  • this day stoodbefore the people.
  • 00:06:54.727 --> 00:06:56.429
  • before the people.And he said, I have wholly
  • 00:06:56.429 --> 00:06:59.065
  • And he said, I have whollycommitted myself to the Lord.
  • 00:06:59.065 --> 00:07:00.266
  • committed myself to the Lord.He said, I have wholly
  • 00:07:00.266 --> 00:07:02.034
  • He said, I have whollyfollowed after the Lord
  • 00:07:02.034 --> 00:07:03.503
  • followed after the Lordwith all of my heart.
  • 00:07:03.503 --> 00:07:04.504
  • with all of my heart.I have completely --

  • I have completely --I used to preach a sermon
  • 00:07:05.571 --> 00:07:06.372
  • I used to preach a sermonwhen I was an evangelist.
  • 00:07:06.372 --> 00:07:07.874
  • when I was an evangelist.There's somewhere in Joshua
  • 00:07:07.874 --> 00:07:08.508
  • There's somewhere in Joshuawhere he says --
  • 00:07:08.508 --> 00:07:09.876
  • where he says --the Bible says of Joshua,
  • 00:07:09.876 --> 00:07:11.744
  • the Bible says of Joshua,he left nothing undone
  • 00:07:11.744 --> 00:07:13.713
  • he left nothing undonethat God told him to do.
  • 00:07:13.713 --> 00:07:14.680
  • that God told him to do.There was something about him
  • 00:07:14.680 --> 00:07:16.015
  • There was something about himthat was so committed.
  • 00:07:16.015 --> 00:07:16.616
  • that was so committed.He was sitting
  • 00:07:16.616 --> 00:07:18.017
  • He was sittingin a seat of commitment,
  • 00:07:18.017 --> 00:07:20.486
  • in a seat of commitment,and he left nothing undone
  • 00:07:20.486 --> 00:07:21.654
  • and he left nothing undonethat God told him to do.
  • 00:07:21.654 --> 00:07:23.155

  • 00:07:30.930 --> 00:07:31.364
  • But then you move over.And he said
  • 00:07:31.364 --> 00:07:33.566
  • And he saidto the people that day,
  • 00:07:33.566 --> 00:07:36.168

  • 00:07:40.306 --> 00:07:42.341
  • And the next generationlooked at him and gave verbiage.
  • 00:07:42.341 --> 00:07:43.609

  • the Lord like you.But when he died,
  • 00:07:45.912 --> 00:07:46.879
  • But when he died,the Bible said
  • 00:07:46.879 --> 00:07:48.281
  • the Bible saidthey didn't do what God
  • 00:07:48.281 --> 00:07:49.248
  • they didn't do what Godtold 'em to do.
  • 00:07:49.248 --> 00:07:50.616
  • told 'em to do.They didn't drive the enemy
  • 00:07:50.616 --> 00:07:51.751
  • They didn't drive the enemyout of the land.
  • 00:07:51.751 --> 00:07:54.153
  • out of the land.They co-existed with the enemy.
  • 00:07:54.153 --> 00:07:55.321
  • They co-existed with the enemy.They intermarried
  • 00:07:55.321 --> 00:07:56.589
  • They intermarriedwith the enemy,
  • 00:07:56.589 --> 00:07:58.624
  • with the enemy,thereby taking on their gods
  • 00:07:58.624 --> 00:07:59.825
  • thereby taking on their godsand their idols.
  • 00:07:59.825 --> 00:08:02.128
  • and their idols.And suddenly, you move
  • 00:08:02.128 --> 00:08:03.029
  • And suddenly, you movefrom the first seat
  • 00:08:03.029 --> 00:08:04.330
  • from the first seatof a generation
  • 00:08:04.330 --> 00:08:06.165
  • of a generationthat's committed to God,
  • 00:08:06.165 --> 00:08:07.700
  • that's committed to God,consecrated to God,
  • 00:08:07.700 --> 00:08:10.269
  • consecrated to God,to a second seat of a generation
  • 00:08:10.269 --> 00:08:12.605
  • to a second seat of a generationthat is compromising.
  • 00:08:12.605 --> 00:08:13.539
  • that is compromising.Mixing a little
  • 00:08:13.539 --> 00:08:14.740
  • Mixing a littleof this and that.
  • 00:08:14.740 --> 00:08:17.276
  • of this and that.And suddenly you have idols.
  • 00:08:17.276 --> 00:08:18.811
  • And suddenly you have idols.The Bible actually says
  • 00:08:18.811 --> 00:08:21.447
  • The Bible actually saysthat they were serving idols
  • 00:08:21.447 --> 00:08:25.418
  • that they were serving idolsand feared the Lord.
  • 00:08:25.418 --> 00:08:30.556
  • and feared the Lord.And then you move into Judges 2.
  • 00:08:30.556 --> 00:08:33.225
  • And then you move into Judges 2.And this is all the same family.
  • 00:08:33.225 --> 00:08:35.194
  • And this is all the same family.And it says and there arose
  • 00:08:35.194 --> 00:08:37.730
  • And it says and there aroseanother generation
  • 00:08:37.730 --> 00:08:41.100
  • another generationthat knew not God
  • 00:08:41.100 --> 00:08:44.804
  • that knew not Godnor the works of God.
  • 00:08:44.804 --> 00:08:45.571
  • nor the works of God.They were sitting
  • 00:08:45.571 --> 00:08:47.607
  • They were sittingin the seat of conflict.
  • 00:08:47.607 --> 00:08:49.575
  • in the seat of conflict.This can happen to our families
  • 00:08:49.575 --> 00:08:50.643
  • This can happen to our familiesif we're not careful.
  • 00:08:50.643 --> 00:08:52.211
  • if we're not careful.That's why it's so important
  • 00:08:52.211 --> 00:08:53.879
  • That's why it's so importantthat we set the pace
  • 00:08:53.879 --> 00:08:54.847
  • that we set the paceof our family
  • 00:08:54.847 --> 00:08:58.184
  • of our familyand be committed to God.
  • 00:08:58.184 --> 00:09:02.088
  • and be committed to God.And it happened to Joshua.
  • 00:09:02.088 --> 00:09:04.523
  • And it happened to Joshua.They struck a compromise.
  • 00:09:04.523 --> 00:09:05.958
  • They struck a compromise.They moved from commitment
  • 00:09:05.958 --> 00:09:07.693
  • They moved from commitmentto compromise.
  • 00:09:07.693 --> 00:09:09.962
  • to compromise.They were called God's people,
  • 00:09:09.962 --> 00:09:10.529
  • They were called God's people,but they were not
  • 00:09:10.529 --> 00:09:12.398
  • but they were notin a relationship with Him.
  • 00:09:12.398 --> 00:09:14.333
  • in a relationship with Him.He was an acquaintance.
  • 00:09:14.333 --> 00:09:15.334
  • He was an acquaintance.I wonder how many people
  • 00:09:15.334 --> 00:09:17.136
  • I wonder how many peopleI'm preaching to today.
  • 00:09:17.136 --> 00:09:18.771
  • I'm preaching to today.I'm not naive.
  • 00:09:18.771 --> 00:09:19.372
  • I'm not naive.I understand

  • that there's a battlefor our souls and our minds.
  • 00:09:23.342 --> 00:09:24.410
  • for our souls and our minds.And the enemy would love for you
  • 00:09:24.410 --> 00:09:26.145
  • And the enemy would love for youto just sit in this seat
  • 00:09:26.145 --> 00:09:26.545

  • and compromise.More, and more, and more.
  • 00:09:33.853 --> 00:09:34.553

  • many, I'm afraid,would describe it
  • 00:09:53.005 --> 00:09:55.241
  • would describe itas an acquaintance,

  • 00:10:02.682 --> 00:10:07.253
  • And then I think aboutthis third seat.

  • This describes this generation.They get up on Sunday morning,
  • 00:10:13.726 --> 00:10:15.294
  • They get up on Sunday morning,and it never crosses their mind
