  • ROBERT MORRIS: 300 million --why in the world
  • 00:00:04.887 --> 00:00:05.621
  • would God createa universe that big,
  • 00:00:05.721 --> 00:00:08.991
  • except He wants us to walk out,
  • 00:00:09.091 --> 00:00:11.093
  • look at the stars and say,“There's got to be a God.”
  • 00:00:11.193 --> 00:00:14.363

  • 00:00:14.463 --> 00:00:28.010
  • ROBERT: The titleof the series, by the way,
  • 00:00:29.812 --> 00:00:30.879
  • is, “Eternity: Your Choice.”
  • 00:00:30.979 --> 00:00:34.083
  • So, I want to nail it downthat God did not choose
  • 00:00:34.183 --> 00:00:37.820
  • some people to go to heaven
  • 00:00:37.920 --> 00:00:38.987
  • and some people to go to hell,that it is completely
  • 00:00:39.088 --> 00:00:41.824
  • your choice whereyou spend eternity.
  • 00:00:41.924 --> 00:00:45.360
  • So we talked about, “WhosoeverWill”, “Where and How.”
  • 00:00:45.461 --> 00:00:47.729
  • This weekend,the message is, “Why?”
  • 00:00:47.830 --> 00:00:52.000
  • And what I'm going to do is takesome of those tough questions,
  • 00:00:52.101 --> 00:00:55.838
  • and we're going to answer those.
  • 00:00:55.938 --> 00:00:58.107
  • For instance, why wouldGod send someone to hell?
  • 00:00:58.207 --> 00:01:01.543
  • Why would a loving God,is the way
  • 00:01:01.643 --> 00:01:03.112
  • it's phrased many times,send someone to hell?
  • 00:01:03.212 --> 00:01:05.481
  • Why did God evencreate hell?
  • 00:01:05.581 --> 00:01:08.217
  • Why did God create twotrees in the garden?
  • 00:01:08.317 --> 00:01:11.420
  • And of course,there were many trees,
  • 00:01:11.520 --> 00:01:12.521
  • but I'm referringto the Tree of Life,
  • 00:01:12.621 --> 00:01:14.623
  • the Tree of Knowledgeand Good and Evil.
  • 00:01:14.723 --> 00:01:15.791
  • Why did God even giveAdam and Eve a choice?
  • 00:01:15.891 --> 00:01:19.561
  • I mean, that's a questiona lot of people have. Why?
  • 00:01:19.661 --> 00:01:23.765
  • Okay, in order to answerthese questions though,
  • 00:01:23.866 --> 00:01:27.102
  • please hear me.
  • 00:01:27.202 --> 00:01:29.204
  • You can never answera difficult question about God
  • 00:01:29.304 --> 00:01:33.609
  • without making surethat your answer
  • 00:01:33.709 --> 00:01:37.279
  • is congruent with His natureand His character,
  • 00:01:37.379 --> 00:01:41.350
  • and we know His nature and Hischaracter through Scripture,
  • 00:01:41.450 --> 00:01:44.920
  • and the whole of Scripture.
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:46.421
  • It's very importantyou understand
  • 00:01:46.522 --> 00:01:47.523
  • it's the whole of Scripture,
  • 00:01:47.623 --> 00:01:49.091
  • because thereare some Scriptures
  • 00:01:49.191 --> 00:01:51.760
  • that would tend us to believesome way of thinking
  • 00:01:51.860 --> 00:01:57.499
  • that might cause us to think,“Well, God might do that,
  • 00:01:57.599 --> 00:02:01.003
  • and God is justifiedto do something like that.”
  • 00:02:01.103 --> 00:02:04.673
  • But if you try to answerdifficult questions about God
  • 00:02:04.773 --> 00:02:08.010
  • without taking intoconsideration His character,
  • 00:02:08.110 --> 00:02:12.114
  • if you begin going down a lineof thought, and this is very,
  • 00:02:12.214 --> 00:02:14.816
  • very important to me --again, I'm not trying
  • 00:02:14.917 --> 00:02:16.985
  • to pick a fight with someonewho believes that way.
  • 00:02:17.085 --> 00:02:19.588
  • I'm really not.
  • 00:02:19.688 --> 00:02:21.089
  • But, it is so difficult for meto believe that people
  • 00:02:21.190 --> 00:02:24.760
  • can believe thatand not believe God is good.
  • 00:02:24.860 --> 00:02:33.168
  • In other words, I don't knowhow you can believe
  • 00:02:33.268 --> 00:02:35.370
  • some of these thingsif you believe God's good,
  • 00:02:35.470 --> 00:02:37.806
  • God's a good God.
  • 00:02:37.906 --> 00:02:39.141
  • So, we're gonna look at someattributes of God today
  • 00:02:39.241 --> 00:02:43.912
  • that are extremely important,because here's the reason.
  • 00:02:44.012 --> 00:02:46.848
  • When I read somethingin this book and I think,
  • 00:02:46.949 --> 00:02:49.084
  • “Now, I don't understand that,that sounds like God
  • 00:02:49.184 --> 00:02:51.954
  • might be harsh,or mean, or cruel,”
  • 00:02:52.054 --> 00:02:55.190
  • I always go back to, “Well,I may not understand it,
  • 00:02:55.290 --> 00:02:58.093
  • but I know God's good,”and I know God's character,
  • 00:02:58.193 --> 00:03:01.830
  • and I've studiedthe whole of Scripture
  • 00:03:01.930 --> 00:03:03.899
  • to know God's character.
  • 00:03:03.999 --> 00:03:05.667
  • So, we have to answerdifficult questions
  • 00:03:05.767 --> 00:03:08.403
  • in light of God's character.It has to be congruent.
  • 00:03:08.503 --> 00:03:12.708
  • Any way of thinking youhave has to be compatible
  • 00:03:12.808 --> 00:03:15.477
  • with Scripture,the whole of Scripture.
  • 00:03:15.577 --> 00:03:17.012
  • All right?So, three points today.
  • 00:03:17.112 --> 00:03:19.214
  • Number one, I've alreadyalluded to, God is good.
  • 00:03:19.314 --> 00:03:24.519
  • He is good.
  • 00:03:24.620 --> 00:03:27.356
  • Psalm 119:68 says,“You are good and do good.”
  • 00:03:27.456 --> 00:03:34.696
  • “You are good and do good.”
  • 00:03:34.796 --> 00:03:36.531
  • By the way, if youtold yourself that,
  • 00:03:36.632 --> 00:03:38.567
  • reminded yourself of thatScripture every morning,
  • 00:03:38.667 --> 00:03:41.970
  • it might change your day.
  • 00:03:42.070 --> 00:03:44.273
  • “You are good and You do good.”
  • 00:03:44.373 --> 00:03:46.508
  • Now, this is the reasonI really love this Scripture,
  • 00:03:46.608 --> 00:03:49.978
  • “You are good and You do good.”
  • 00:03:50.078 --> 00:03:53.348
  • Now, listen carefullyto what I'm gonna say, okay?
  • 00:03:53.448 --> 00:03:56.652
  • God isn't goodbecause He does good,
  • 00:03:56.752 --> 00:04:01.390
  • God does goodbecause He is good.
  • 00:04:01.490 --> 00:04:05.360
  • Do you follow me?Let me say it again.
  • 00:04:05.460 --> 00:04:08.130
  • Him being good is not dependentupon Him doing good.
  • 00:04:08.230 --> 00:04:13.302
  • He does goodbecause He is good.
  • 00:04:13.402 --> 00:04:16.238
  • See, it's like God is truth.He is truth.
  • 00:04:16.338 --> 00:04:22.811
  • Jesus didn't sayI know the truth,
  • 00:04:22.911 --> 00:04:24.713
  • he said “I am truth.”I'm truth.
  • 00:04:24.813 --> 00:04:27.049
  • Okay, so because God is truth,He can't lie.
  • 00:04:27.149 --> 00:04:31.386
  • He can't lie.
  • 00:04:31.486 --> 00:04:32.487
  • This is what,and it's a real big problem
  • 00:04:32.587 --> 00:04:34.489
  • with most people's definitionof the sovereignty of God,
  • 00:04:34.589 --> 00:04:41.463
  • because what they thinkthat it means is that God
  • 00:04:41.563 --> 00:04:44.066
  • can do anythingHe wants to do. No.
  • 00:04:44.166 --> 00:04:47.536
  • What it means is...I wish you'd study it.
  • 00:04:47.636 --> 00:04:50.472
  • Sovereign means He's the supremeruler of the universe.
  • 00:04:50.572 --> 00:04:53.809
  • But because He iswho He is, you say,
  • 00:04:53.909 --> 00:04:57.312
  • “Well, God can doanything He wants.”
  • 00:04:57.412 --> 00:04:58.347
  • No, God can't actoutside of His character.
  • 00:04:58.447 --> 00:05:02.784
  • He can't.Are you all following this?
  • 00:05:02.884 --> 00:05:05.954
  • Am I making it clear,because it's not
  • 00:05:06.054 --> 00:05:07.656
  • that you follow me,it's me saying it clearly.
  • 00:05:07.756 --> 00:05:09.791
  • God is truth,so He can't lie.
  • 00:05:09.891 --> 00:05:14.096
  • He's not a manthat He shall lie. Okay.
  • 00:05:14.196 --> 00:05:15.630
  • In the same way,God is love.
  • 00:05:15.731 --> 00:05:18.934
  • So, everything I readin the Scripture,
  • 00:05:19.034 --> 00:05:20.435
  • I have to put within,does this fit
  • 00:05:20.535 --> 00:05:23.038
  • in the basic that God is good?
  • 00:05:23.138 --> 00:05:25.807
  • We're gonna talk aboutGod's love in minute,
  • 00:05:25.907 --> 00:05:27.309
  • but God is good. Okay.
  • 00:05:27.409 --> 00:05:28.710
  • So, let me explain somethingabout how good God is.
  • 00:05:28.810 --> 00:05:33.048
  • Moses asked Godto see His glory.
  • 00:05:33.148 --> 00:05:37.786
  • Now, “glory” is this huge word.
  • 00:05:37.886 --> 00:05:39.621
  • I could tell you the Hebrewand the words it comes from.
  • 00:05:39.721 --> 00:05:42.257
  • I could tell you the Greekand the words it comes from
  • 00:05:42.357 --> 00:05:44.493
  • and explain, but thatwouldn't help us much, okay?
  • 00:05:44.593 --> 00:05:46.728
  • So, I'm gonna give youa practical definition.
  • 00:05:46.828 --> 00:05:51.066
  • Glory is whatyou're famous for.
  • 00:05:51.166 --> 00:05:54.870
  • It's what you're known for.
  • 00:05:54.970 --> 00:05:56.571
  • Okay, so Moses, when he said,“Show me Your glory,”
  • 00:05:56.671 --> 00:05:59.274
  • here's what he was saying --show me what You're famous for.
  • 00:05:59.374 --> 00:06:03.178
  • Show me what You're best at.What do You do best, okay?
  • 00:06:03.278 --> 00:06:09.418
  • Look at this.
  • 00:06:09.518 --> 00:06:10.485
  • Here's what he said,and we'll get to Isaiah 5
  • 00:06:10.585 --> 00:06:12.387
  • at the very...along time from now, okay?
  • 00:06:12.487 --> 00:06:14.623
  • Just, all right?
  • 00:06:14.723 --> 00:06:16.892
  • Exodus 33:18, “And he”,Moses, “said,
  • 00:06:16.992 --> 00:06:20.262
  • “Please show me Your glory.”
  • 00:06:20.362 --> 00:06:21.596
  • Then He”,that's God, said, okay,
  • 00:06:21.696 --> 00:06:24.099
  • “I'll make My goodnesspass before you.”
  • 00:06:24.199 --> 00:06:27.669
  • I love that Scripture!
  • 00:06:27.769 --> 00:06:30.172
  • Show me whatYou're famous for.
  • 00:06:30.272 --> 00:06:32.441
  • He said, “Oh.
  • 00:06:32.541 --> 00:06:33.508
  • Well, I'm famousfor being good.
  • 00:06:33.608 --> 00:06:36.344
  • That's what I'm famous for.I'm known for good.”
  • 00:06:36.445 --> 00:06:39.915
  • Okay, so because I know that,anything I read in the Bible
  • 00:06:40.015 --> 00:06:44.653
  • has to line upwith the goodness of God.
  • 00:06:44.753 --> 00:06:47.489
  • And what happens is we readsomething in the Bible,
  • 00:06:47.589 --> 00:06:50.725
  • and we think, “Man, that soundslike God's being mean.”
  • 00:06:50.826 --> 00:06:54.196
  • So, let me show you one.
  • 00:06:54.296 --> 00:06:55.497
  • When Adam and Eve sinned, Goddrove them out of the garden,
  • 00:06:55.597 --> 00:06:59.534
  • and He gave a reasonwhy He drove them out.
  • 00:06:59.634 --> 00:07:03.171
  • But when you understandHe's good,
  • 00:07:03.271 --> 00:07:05.006
  • you understand whyHe drove them out.
  • 00:07:05.106 --> 00:07:06.741
  • Okay, let me read it,Genesis 3:22.
  • 00:07:06.842 --> 00:07:09.211
  • “Then the Lord God said,“Behold, the man has become
  • 00:07:09.311 --> 00:07:11.980
  • like one of Us,” Us:Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
  • 00:07:12.080 --> 00:07:15.484
  • “To know good and evil.
  • 00:07:15.584 --> 00:07:17.285
  • And now”, watch, “lest heput out his hand and take also
  • 00:07:17.385 --> 00:07:21.656
  • of the Tree of Life,and eat, and live forever,”
  • 00:07:21.756 --> 00:07:24.960
  • and then noticethe sentence stops there,
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:26.461
  • even though that's nota complete sentence.
  • 00:07:26.561 --> 00:07:28.363
  • Watch, and that'svery important,
  • 00:07:28.463 --> 00:07:29.698
  • why I'm telling you this.
  • 00:07:29.798 --> 00:07:31.066
  • “Therefore the Lord God senthim out of the garden of Eden
  • 00:07:31.166 --> 00:07:33.134
  • to till the groundfrom which he was taken.
  • 00:07:33.235 --> 00:07:34.736
  • So He drove out the man;and He placed cherubim”,
  • 00:07:34.836 --> 00:07:38.907
  • that's really big dudes.
  • 00:07:39.007 --> 00:07:41.810
  • That's what that means inthe Hebrew, really big dudes,
  • 00:07:41.910 --> 00:07:45.647
  • angels, “at the eastof the garden of Eden,
  • 00:07:45.747 --> 00:07:48.149
  • and a flaming sword”, watchthis, “a flaming sword” --
  • 00:07:48.250 --> 00:07:51.486
  • it doesn't even sayanybody was holding it.
  • 00:07:51.586 --> 00:07:53.989
  • “A flaming sword whichturned every way”, north,
  • 00:07:54.089 --> 00:07:58.159
  • south, east, and west,“to guard the way
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:00.829
  • to the Tree of Life.” Okay.
  • 00:08:00.929 --> 00:08:02.297
  • Here's why I said, you know,I want you to notice
  • 00:08:02.397 --> 00:08:04.499
  • the sentence says, God said,
  • 00:08:04.599 --> 00:08:05.867
  • “Hey, man hasbecome like Us now.
  • 00:08:05.967 --> 00:08:07.936
  • He knows good and evil.
  • 00:08:08.036 --> 00:08:09.471
  • We'd better drive himout of the garden,
  • 00:08:09.571 --> 00:08:10.972
  • lest he take from the Treeof Life and live forever,”
  • 00:08:11.072 --> 00:08:13.875
  • and then it doesn't go on.
  • 00:08:13.975 --> 00:08:15.176
  • “Lest he take from the Treeof Life and live forever,”
  • 00:08:15.277 --> 00:08:17.245
  • da dada da, what?What does that mean?
  • 00:08:17.345 --> 00:08:18.647
  • Okay, so many people have said,“See, that just shows God
  • 00:08:18.747 --> 00:08:21.516
  • was mad at Adam and Eve,and in His temper,
  • 00:08:21.616 --> 00:08:24.085
  • He just drovethem out.” No.
  • 00:08:24.185 --> 00:08:26.054
  • God's good.Here's why He was saying it.
  • 00:08:26.154 --> 00:08:29.824
  • He said “They are now -Adam and Eve -
  • 00:08:29.925 --> 00:08:32.193
  • are now in a fallen state.They're in a fallen state.
  • 00:08:32.294 --> 00:08:37.365
  • They are now separatedfrom Me, and if they eat
  • 00:08:37.465 --> 00:08:40.302
  • from the Tree of Life now,they will live forever
  • 00:08:40.402 --> 00:08:44.439
  • in a fallen state,separated from Me.
  • 00:08:44.539 --> 00:08:49.544
  • Get ‘em out.
  • 00:08:49.644 --> 00:08:50.779
  • Get ‘em out right now,and put a flaming sword down
  • 00:08:50.879 --> 00:08:53.448
  • there so they don't eat fromthat tree in a fallen state,
  • 00:08:53.548 --> 00:08:58.053
  • because they'll live forever,separated from Us.”
  • 00:08:58.153 --> 00:09:00.889
  • You all see that?
  • 00:09:00.989 --> 00:09:02.190
  • See, that's God's goodness,but people don't pick that up
  • 00:09:02.290 --> 00:09:05.393
  • if you don't have it rootedin you, God's a good God.
  • 00:09:05.493 --> 00:09:09.097
  • By the way, three Scripturesin Revelation tell us
  • 00:09:09.197 --> 00:09:12.334
  • that that Tree of Lifeis in heaven,
  • 00:09:12.434 --> 00:09:15.570
  • and you can eat from itall you want
  • 00:09:15.670 --> 00:09:18.139
  • because you're ina redeemed state,
  • 00:09:18.239 --> 00:09:20.275
  • and it's fine for youto eat from the Tree of Life
  • 00:09:20.375 --> 00:09:22.310
  • in a redeemed state,but He doesn't want you
  • 00:09:22.410 --> 00:09:24.613
  • to eat from itin a fallen state.
  • 00:09:24.713 --> 00:09:27.248
  • He doesn't wantyou to stay fallen.
  • 00:09:27.349 --> 00:09:28.783
  • [Applause]
  • 00:09:28.883 --> 00:09:30.385
  • So, God's a good God,and that's the first thing
  • 00:09:31.987 --> 00:09:33.755
  • I want you to know.
  • 00:09:33.855 --> 00:09:34.823
  • Here's the second thing,God is just.
  • 00:09:34.923 --> 00:09:38.226
  • He's just.
  • 00:09:38.326 --> 00:09:40.795
  • It's not just that He doesjust things, He is just.
  • 00:09:40.895 --> 00:09:46.034
  • Isaiah 45:21, “There is noother God besides Me”,
  • 00:09:46.134 --> 00:09:50.171
  • this is God speaking,“a just God and a Savior.”
  • 00:09:50.271 --> 00:09:55.810
  • “A just God and a Savior.”
  • 00:09:55.910 --> 00:09:57.879
  • There will never beinjustice with God
  • 00:09:57.979 --> 00:10:01.016
  • or any of His judgments, never.
  • 00:10:01.116 --> 00:10:03.685
  • Because I know that --see, I can't go along
  • 00:10:03.785 --> 00:10:06.888
  • with this thing that Godchose some to go to heaven
  • 00:10:06.988 --> 00:10:08.857
  • and some to go to hell,‘cause that's not just.
  • 00:10:08.957 --> 00:10:12.594
  • That's not justice,and I know God. I know God.
  • 00:10:12.694 --> 00:10:16.197
  • I don't know if youall know this,
  • 00:10:16.297 --> 00:10:17.565
  • I've met Him personally.I'm saved!
  • 00:10:17.666 --> 00:10:24.239
  • Are any of you all saved?Anybody here?
  • 00:10:24.339 --> 00:10:28.209
  • Okay, so you'vemet Him, too!
  • 00:10:28.309 --> 00:10:30.111
  • I'm not special,you met Him too!
  • 00:10:30.211 --> 00:10:32.614
  • And I talk to Him every day!
  • 00:10:32.714 --> 00:10:35.116
  • Do you talk toHim every day?
  • 00:10:35.216 --> 00:10:36.117
  • I talk to Him every day.
  • 00:10:36.217 --> 00:10:37.285
  • And, He wrote me a love letter,and I've read it,
  • 00:10:37.385 --> 00:10:40.455
  • multiple times!
  • 00:10:40.555 --> 00:10:42.090
  • So, I can't believe anythingthat doesn't line
  • 00:10:42.190 --> 00:10:44.826
  • up with this book!
  • 00:10:44.926 --> 00:10:46.294
  • I cannot believe it,‘cause I know this God!
  • 00:10:46.394 --> 00:10:49.798
  • I know He's good,and I know He's just.
  • 00:10:49.898 --> 00:10:52.934
  • So, we have thesequestions, though.
  • 00:10:53.034 --> 00:10:55.136
  • Well, would a loving God,or how could a just God,
  • 00:10:55.236 --> 00:11:00.041
  • send anyone to hell?
  • 00:11:00.141 --> 00:11:01.509
  • And I'm gonnaanswer that, okay?
  • 00:11:01.609 --> 00:11:03.745
  • But, here'sanother question.
  • 00:11:03.845 --> 00:11:05.113
  • Would God send someone to hellwho's never had a chance?
  • 00:11:05.213 --> 00:11:08.817
  • Never heard the gospel,never had a chance?
  • 00:11:08.917 --> 00:11:11.319
  • Okay, let's answerby the Bible -
  • 00:11:11.419 --> 00:11:14.556
  • not our opinion, by the Bible.
  • 00:11:14.656 --> 00:11:15.890
  • Romans 1:18, “For the wrathof God is revealed
  • 00:11:15.990 --> 00:11:19.661
  • from heaven againstall ungodliness
  • 00:11:19.761 --> 00:11:22.831
  • and unrighteousness of men,who suppress the truth
  • 00:11:22.931 --> 00:11:25.967
  • in unrighteousness,because what may be known of God
  • 00:11:26.067 --> 00:11:32.173
  • is manifest”...now, let me just tell you
  • 00:11:32.273 --> 00:11:35.777
  • and then I'll goin a little deeper.
  • 00:11:35.877 --> 00:11:37.345
  • The word “manifest”means to make known.
  • 00:11:37.445 --> 00:11:40.548
  • That's what it means.
  • 00:11:40.648 --> 00:11:41.916
  • I know it soundslike a big word,
  • 00:11:42.016 --> 00:11:43.218
  • but it means to make known.So, watch this Scripture.
  • 00:11:43.318 --> 00:11:45.553
  • “Because what may be knownof God is made known.”
  • 00:11:45.653 --> 00:11:50.125
  • In other words, God makes itknown to every person. Watch.
  • 00:11:50.225 --> 00:11:53.194
  • “In”, underlinethat word, “in them,
  • 00:11:53.294 --> 00:11:56.331
  • for God has shown it to them.”
  • 00:11:56.431 --> 00:11:58.533
  • I want you to remember“in” and “to”.
  • 00:11:58.633 --> 00:12:00.468
  • “For since the creationof the world”, now, watch this.
  • 00:12:00.568 --> 00:12:04.439
  • This is kind of tough toexplain, but it's good.
  • 00:12:04.539 --> 00:12:07.942
  • Listen, watch.
  • 00:12:08.042 --> 00:12:08.977
  • “His invisible attributes...”
  • 00:12:09.077 --> 00:12:12.247
  • now, what's the word“invisible” mean?
  • 00:12:12.347 --> 00:12:14.682
  • You can't see Him, right?Okay, watch.
  • 00:12:14.783 --> 00:12:17.018
  • “What can't be seenabout Him”, watch,
  • 00:12:17.118 --> 00:12:19.554
  • “His invisible attributes,are clearly seen.”
  • 00:12:19.654 --> 00:12:23.792
  • Kind of a playon words, isn't it?
  • 00:12:23.892 --> 00:12:25.760
  • In other words,His character,
  • 00:12:25.860 --> 00:12:26.995
  • His goodness, is clearly seen.
  • 00:12:27.095 --> 00:12:29.430
  • His love is clearly seen.
  • 00:12:29.531 --> 00:12:32.033
  • “Being understood bythe things which are made,
  • 00:12:32.133 --> 00:12:35.703
  • even His eternal powerand Godhead, so that they”,
  • 00:12:35.804 --> 00:12:38.540
  • that's the people who livein unrighteousness
  • 00:12:38.640 --> 00:12:40.875
  • and won't accept Him, “so thatthey are without excuse.” Okay.
  • 00:12:40.975 --> 00:12:44.379
  • So, God manifests Himselfto every person
  • 00:12:44.479 --> 00:12:48.049
  • internally and externally.
  • 00:12:48.149 --> 00:12:51.252
  • That's what it's saying,internally and externally.
  • 00:12:51.352 --> 00:12:53.822
  • So again, let me give youa little moral manifest.
  • 00:12:53.922 --> 00:12:56.691
  • If I said to you,“There is a multi-billionaire
  • 00:12:56.791 --> 00:13:02.730
  • in the service.
  • 00:13:02.831 --> 00:13:04.966
  • I just wantedeverybody to know that.”
  • 00:13:05.066 --> 00:13:06.334
  • And then, I'd just go on,and you'd think,
  • 00:13:06.434 --> 00:13:08.236
  • “Oh, okay, big deal.”
  • 00:13:08.336 --> 00:13:10.004
  • But if that multi-billionairegot up and began to do
  • 00:13:10.104 --> 00:13:14.709
  • what only a multi-billionaire could do,
  • 00:13:14.809 --> 00:13:18.479
  • and that is giveevery person $100.000...
  • 00:13:18.580 --> 00:13:25.420
  • are there anymulti-billionaires in the --
  • 00:13:25.520 --> 00:13:27.388
  • No, I was just joking,just joking, just joking.
  • 00:13:27.488 --> 00:13:32.393
  • Okay, but if he did,and he gave to every person
  • 00:13:32.493 --> 00:13:36.431
  • what only he could do,he did for them
  • 00:13:36.531 --> 00:13:38.433
  • what only he could do for them,
  • 00:13:38.533 --> 00:13:40.702
  • he'd be manifestinghis presence.
  • 00:13:40.802 --> 00:13:43.271
  • He wouldn't justbe in our service,
  • 00:13:43.371 --> 00:13:44.739
  • in our presence,
  • 00:13:44.839 --> 00:13:46.207
  • he'd be makinghis presence known. Listen.
  • 00:13:46.307 --> 00:13:49.310
  • This is why I love worship,
  • 00:13:49.410 --> 00:13:52.447
  • because it's not justthe omnipresence of God,
  • 00:13:52.547 --> 00:13:55.850
  • it's the manifestpresence of God.
  • 00:13:55.950 --> 00:13:58.453
  • He gets up during our worship,and He begins to walk around
  • 00:13:58.553 --> 00:14:03.157
  • and give to every personwhat only God can give to you.
  • 00:14:03.258 --> 00:14:07.996
  • He's the only one thatcan give it to you.
  • 00:14:08.096 --> 00:14:09.864
  • [Applause]
  • 00:14:09.964 --> 00:14:12.767
  • He makes Himselfknown, all right?
  • 00:14:12.867 --> 00:14:15.603
  • So, how does He make Himselfknown, according to this,
  • 00:14:15.703 --> 00:14:17.605
  • internally and externally?
  • 00:14:17.705 --> 00:14:18.773
  • Let me say it thisway, all right?
  • 00:14:18.873 --> 00:14:21.709
  • God manifests Himselfto every person on the inside,
  • 00:14:21.809 --> 00:14:26.314
  • because we havea conscience.
  • 00:14:26.414 --> 00:14:28.883
  • Every personhas a conscience.
  • 00:14:28.983 --> 00:14:31.019
  • He manifests Himself toevery person on the outside,
  • 00:14:31.119 --> 00:14:34.923
  • because we have creation.Conscience and creation.
  • 00:14:35.023 --> 00:14:40.028
  • Your conscience tells youthere's a God, and creation
  • 00:14:40.128 --> 00:14:45.099
  • tells us there's a God.Think about this.
  • 00:14:45.199 --> 00:14:48.736
  • Why did God createa universe this big?
  • 00:14:48.836 --> 00:14:54.142
  • Stars, as far as right now,as far as our telescopes can go,
  • 00:14:54.242 --> 00:14:57.679
  • this is what I've been told,300 million light years away.
  • 00:14:57.779 --> 00:15:03.584
  • Light years.
  • 00:15:03.685 --> 00:15:04.652
  • If you traveledthe speed of light,
  • 00:15:04.752 --> 00:15:05.853
  • 186.000 miles per second.That's pretty fast.
  • 00:15:05.954 --> 00:15:11.492
  • 300 million -- why inthe world would God create
  • 00:15:11.592 --> 00:15:16.764
  • a universe that big, exceptHe wants us to walk out,
  • 00:15:16.864 --> 00:15:21.135
  • look at the stars and say,“There's got to be a God.”
  • 00:15:21.235 --> 00:15:25.406
  • There's got to be God.
  • 00:15:25.506 --> 00:15:26.674
  • And here's what'samazing to me.
  • 00:15:26.774 --> 00:15:28.810
  • People say that thattakes a leap of faith.
  • 00:15:28.910 --> 00:15:32.981
  • Okay, here's the other one.
  • 00:15:33.081 --> 00:15:35.850
  • Nothing collided with nothing,and all of this came into being.
  • 00:15:35.950 --> 00:15:44.392
  • You want to talkabout a leap of faith?
  • 00:15:44.492 --> 00:15:47.061
  • [Applause]
  • 00:15:47.161 --> 00:15:54.135
  • It is crazy!
  • 00:15:54.235 --> 00:15:57.305
  • By the way, it is stillcalled the Big Bang Theory.
  • 00:15:57.405 --> 00:16:02.410
  • Okay, but why?
  • 00:16:02.510 --> 00:16:04.946
  • Why did God do this?Let me tell you something.
  • 00:16:05.046 --> 00:16:06.180
  • God put eternityin every person's heart.
  • 00:16:06.280 --> 00:16:09.550
  • God has put eternityin every person's heart.
  • 00:16:09.650 --> 00:16:11.619
  • Think about this.
  • 00:16:11.719 --> 00:16:14.856
  • No person can ever say,“No one told me.”
  • 00:16:14.956 --> 00:16:17.992
  • Here's why.
  • 00:16:18.092 --> 00:16:19.160
  • Because God can comeand say, “I told you.
  • 00:16:19.260 --> 00:16:23.664
  • I came to you whenyou were a child,
  • 00:16:23.765 --> 00:16:27.602
  • and I put it in your heartto wonder about Me.”
  • 00:16:27.702 --> 00:16:29.570
  • I want to just take a littlepoll at every campus, all right?
  • 00:16:29.670 --> 00:16:31.839
  • How many of you rememberwondering about God
  • 00:16:31.939 --> 00:16:36.277
  • when you were a child?Can I see your hands?
  • 00:16:36.377 --> 00:16:41.149
  • That's because Godput it in your heart.
  • 00:16:41.249 --> 00:16:43.851
  • And let me tell yousomething else,
  • 00:16:43.951 --> 00:16:45.053
  • so this may blow you away,and I'm just gonna list
  • 00:16:45.153 --> 00:16:47.755
  • a few of the Scriptures,just because of time, okay?
  • 00:16:47.855 --> 00:16:49.757
  • Just a few.
  • 00:16:49.857 --> 00:16:51.325
  • Every person - this iswhat the Bible says -
  • 00:16:51.426 --> 00:16:53.494
  • every person - every,every person who seeks
  • 00:16:53.594 --> 00:16:59.467
  • after God will find Him.Every person.
  • 00:16:59.567 --> 00:17:06.741
  • Let me just show you a fewof the Scriptures, all right?
  • 00:17:06.841 --> 00:17:09.277
  • Proverbs 8:17,“I love those who love Me,
  • 00:17:09.377 --> 00:17:12.280
  • and those who seek Mediligently will find Me.”
  • 00:17:12.380 --> 00:17:15.950
  • Not might, not should,not hopefully - will. They will.
  • 00:17:16.050 --> 00:17:19.587
  • “If they'll seek Mediligently, they will.”
  • 00:17:19.687 --> 00:17:21.222
  • Jeremiah 29:13, “And youwill seek Me and find Me.”
  • 00:17:21.322 --> 00:17:25.493
  • You will find Me.
  • 00:17:25.593 --> 00:17:27.228
  • The verb stillapplies to find.
  • 00:17:27.328 --> 00:17:28.763
  • “When you search for Mewith all your heart.”
  • 00:17:28.863 --> 00:17:31.632
  • Jesus Himself, Matthew 7,Sermon on the Mount, 7 and 8.
  • 00:17:31.732 --> 00:17:34.802
  • “And ask, and it will begiven to you; seek,
  • 00:17:34.902 --> 00:17:38.973
  • and you will find; knock,and it will be opened to you.
  • 00:17:39.073 --> 00:17:42.643
  • For everyone who asks receives,and he who seeks finds,
  • 00:17:42.743 --> 00:17:45.446
  • and to him who knocks itwill be opened.”
  • 00:17:45.546 --> 00:17:46.848
  • And Acts 17,this is the way Paul put it
  • 00:17:46.948 --> 00:17:49.150
  • in his sermon on Mars Hill.
  • 00:17:49.250 --> 00:17:51.285
  • Verse 26 and 27, “And Hehas made from one blood
  • 00:17:51.385 --> 00:17:54.822
  • every nation of men to dwellon all the face of the earth,
  • 00:17:54.922 --> 00:17:59.060
  • and has determinedtheir preappointed times
  • 00:17:59.160 --> 00:18:01.295
  • and the boundaries of theirdwellings, so that”, so that,
  • 00:18:01.395 --> 00:18:05.066
  • because, therefore, “so thatthey should seek the Lord.”
  • 00:18:05.166 --> 00:18:10.738
  • He's done this for every person.
  • 00:18:10.838 --> 00:18:12.073
  • He's put it in everyperson's heart to seek Him.
  • 00:18:12.173 --> 00:18:14.175
  • “In the hope that they mightgrope for Him”, that's the hope,
  • 00:18:14.275 --> 00:18:18.146
  • and if they do grope for Him,and grope, by the way,
  • 00:18:18.246 --> 00:18:20.448
  • means to make an effort.
  • 00:18:20.548 --> 00:18:22.750
  • That's all it means,just make an effort.
  • 00:18:22.850 --> 00:18:25.153
  • Watch.“And find Him.”
  • 00:18:25.253 --> 00:18:28.389
  • God put eternity in your heartso you would look for Him,
  • 00:18:28.489 --> 00:18:33.194
  • and if you look for Him,you'll find Him,
  • 00:18:33.294 --> 00:18:35.396
  • because He is not farfrom each one of us -
  • 00:18:35.496 --> 00:18:38.799
  • “though He is not farfrom each one of us.”
  • 00:18:38.900 --> 00:18:40.601
  • So, God's a just God.
  • 00:18:40.701 --> 00:18:43.304
  • He's good, He's just,and here's number three,
  • 00:18:43.404 --> 00:18:48.309
  • God is love.
  • 00:18:48.409 --> 00:18:50.778
  • 1 John 4:18, “He who does notlove God does not know God,
  • 00:18:50.878 --> 00:18:55.950
  • for God is love.”
  • 00:18:56.050 --> 00:19:00.488
  • Okay, so this question,why would a loving God
  • 00:19:00.588 --> 00:19:02.723
  • send anyone to hell?
  • 00:19:02.823 --> 00:19:04.992
  • Well, I'm gonna get to it,but just for a moment,
  • 00:19:05.092 --> 00:19:06.861
  • could we just lookat that, that issue,
  • 00:19:06.961 --> 00:19:11.499
  • from a biblicalperspective, okay?
  • 00:19:11.599 --> 00:19:15.369
  • First of all, you needto know something about hell.
  • 00:19:15.469 --> 00:19:18.606
  • God did not createhell for people.
  • 00:19:18.706 --> 00:19:24.712
  • People say, “Well, why woulda loving God even create hell
  • 00:19:24.812 --> 00:19:26.948
  • for people?”
  • 00:19:27.048 --> 00:19:27.949
  • He didn't createhell for people.
  • 00:19:28.049 --> 00:19:30.218
  • He created hell forthe devil and his angels.
  • 00:19:30.318 --> 00:19:34.088
  • Jesus' own words,Matthew 25:41.
  • 00:19:34.188 --> 00:19:36.824
  • “Then He will also sayto those on the left hand,
  • 00:19:36.924 --> 00:19:38.759
  • “Depart from Me, you cursed,
  • 00:19:38.859 --> 00:19:40.194
  • into the everlastingfire prepared” -
  • 00:19:40.294 --> 00:19:43.064
  • the root of this wordin the Greek means “built”.
  • 00:19:43.164 --> 00:19:45.766
  • Built “for the deviland his angels.”
  • 00:19:45.866 --> 00:19:50.304
  • So, He didn'tprepare hell for you.
  • 00:19:50.404 --> 00:19:52.873
  • He prepared heaven for you.
  • 00:19:52.974 --> 00:19:55.643
  • “I go to preparea place for you.”
  • 00:19:55.743 --> 00:19:59.814
  • He didn't prepare hell for you,and He built it
  • 00:19:59.914 --> 00:20:03.050
  • for the devil's angels,but men became evil.
  • 00:20:03.150 --> 00:20:06.821
  • And so, watch what happened.
  • 00:20:06.921 --> 00:20:08.589
  • This may be something you'venever seen in your life.
  • 00:20:08.689 --> 00:20:12.026
  • By the way,I'm now at Isaiah 5.
  • 00:20:12.126 --> 00:20:14.595
  • I got there. Okay?
  • 00:20:14.695 --> 00:20:18.699
  • And we'll read somethingafter this also
  • 00:20:18.799 --> 00:20:20.701
  • in Isaiah 5, so youcan stay there.
  • 00:20:20.801 --> 00:20:22.103
  • Verse 11, “Woe to those whorise early in the morning,
  • 00:20:22.203 --> 00:20:26.040
  • that they may followintoxicating drink;
  • 00:20:26.140 --> 00:20:29.076
  • who continue until night,till wine inflames them!
  • 00:20:29.176 --> 00:20:33.247
  • The harp and the strings,the tambourine and flute,
  • 00:20:33.347 --> 00:20:35.783
  • and wine are in their feasts;but they do not regard
  • 00:20:35.883 --> 00:20:39.487
  • the work of the Lord,nor consider the operation
  • 00:20:39.587 --> 00:20:41.422
  • of His hands.
  • 00:20:41.522 --> 00:20:42.456
  • Therefore my peoplehave gone into captivity,
  • 00:20:42.556 --> 00:20:45.192
  • because they have no knowledge;their honorable men
  • 00:20:45.293 --> 00:20:48.162
  • are famished,and their multitude dried up
  • 00:20:48.262 --> 00:20:49.964
  • with thirst.”Watch 14 carefully.
  • 00:20:50.064 --> 00:20:52.366
  • It uses the Old Testamentword for hell, which is “Sheol”.
  • 00:20:52.466 --> 00:20:55.569
  • “Therefore Sheol”, watch,“has enlarged itself.”
  • 00:20:55.670 --> 00:21:03.678
  • Hell added on.The devil added on to hell.
  • 00:21:03.778 --> 00:21:06.881
  • “Therefore Sheol”...God didn't do it.
  • 00:21:06.981 --> 00:21:12.620
  • “Sheol has enlarged itselfand opened its mouth
  • 00:21:12.720 --> 00:21:18.225
  • beyond measure; their glory andtheir multitude and their pomp,
  • 00:21:18.326 --> 00:21:21.796
  • and he who is jubilant,shall descend into it.”
  • 00:21:21.896 --> 00:21:26.167
  • Hell was enlarged by necessity,not by design.
  • 00:21:26.267 --> 00:21:32.940
  • I'm gonna say that again.
  • 00:21:33.040 --> 00:21:35.076
  • I'd love for youto never forget that.
  • 00:21:35.176 --> 00:21:37.745
  • Hell was enlarged by necessity,not by design,
  • 00:21:37.845 --> 00:21:43.351
  • and hell enlarged itself.
  • 00:21:43.451 --> 00:21:45.920
  • Satan added on to it,because he got a third
  • 00:21:46.020 --> 00:21:49.790
  • of the angels to follow him,and then he got people
  • 00:21:49.890 --> 00:21:52.393
  • to follow him.That's why.
  • 00:21:52.493 --> 00:21:55.830
  • So we say, “Well, why woulda loving God, you know,
  • 00:21:55.930 --> 00:21:58.933
  • send anyone to hell?”
  • 00:21:59.033 --> 00:21:59.967
  • It's normally askedvery rhetorically,
  • 00:22:00.067 --> 00:22:04.805
  • very angrily, very...I had a really good word
  • 00:22:04.905 --> 00:22:10.344
  • somewhere in my notes.
  • 00:22:10.444 --> 00:22:12.680
  • Accusingly,that was a good word.
  • 00:22:12.780 --> 00:22:15.316
  • All right.
  • 00:22:15.416 --> 00:22:17.718
  • You all just editthat part there.
  • 00:22:17.818 --> 00:22:19.787
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:22:19.887 --> 00:22:21.722
  • Let me just give you three,the three major.
  • 00:22:23.057 --> 00:22:25.926
  • There are many more stories ofrejection of God in the Bible.
  • 00:22:26.026 --> 00:22:28.596
  • I want to give youthe three major stories
  • 00:22:28.696 --> 00:22:30.998
  • of the rejection of God.
  • 00:22:31.098 --> 00:22:32.433
  • The first is in Isaiah 14and Revelation 12,
  • 00:22:32.533 --> 00:22:35.136
  • also Ezekiel 28.
  • 00:22:35.236 --> 00:22:36.404
  • Lucifer was the worshipleader in heaven.
  • 00:22:36.504 --> 00:22:39.907
  • He led a third of the angelsto rebel against God.
  • 00:22:40.007 --> 00:22:43.911
  • Here's what I want youto remember about that.
  • 00:22:44.011 --> 00:22:46.447
  • They weren't borninto a bad situation.
  • 00:22:46.547 --> 00:22:52.820
  • God never abused them,never treated them bad,
  • 00:22:52.920 --> 00:22:57.057
  • and a third of themrejected God.
  • 00:22:57.158 --> 00:23:00.428
  • That's the first rebelliousstory, rejection of God.
  • 00:23:00.528 --> 00:23:04.632
  • The second one isfound in Genesis 3.
  • 00:23:04.732 --> 00:23:08.269
  • God creates Adam and Eve -perfect bodies, perfect health,
  • 00:23:08.369 --> 00:23:12.807
  • perfect garden,perfect marriage,
  • 00:23:12.907 --> 00:23:16.343
  • perfect relationship with Godand perfect relationship
  • 00:23:16.444 --> 00:23:18.946
  • with each other,and they rebel against God.
  • 00:23:19.046 --> 00:23:23.050
  • The third one'seven worse than that.
  • 00:23:23.150 --> 00:23:29.790
  • He sent His own Sonto this earth,
  • 00:23:29.890 --> 00:23:34.261
  • who explainedto them the Scriptures,
  • 00:23:34.361 --> 00:23:38.299
  • who did nothingbut good for 33-1/2 years,
  • 00:23:38.399 --> 00:23:43.337
  • 3-1/2 years in public ministry.
  • 00:23:43.437 --> 00:23:45.406
  • Healed people,raised people from the dead,
  • 00:23:45.506 --> 00:23:48.943
  • loved on people,had dinner with sinners,
  • 00:23:49.043 --> 00:23:53.614
  • never actedprideful or arrogant.
  • 00:23:53.714 --> 00:23:59.820
  • And we rejected Him so muchthat we tortured Him to death,
  • 00:23:59.920 --> 00:24:05.493
  • the inexcusable rebelliousrejection of the loving God.
  • 00:24:05.593 --> 00:24:10.865
  • Okay, do you want meto answer the question,
  • 00:24:10.965 --> 00:24:12.399
  • why would a loving Godsend anyone to hell?
  • 00:24:12.500 --> 00:24:15.135
  • It's a simple,simple answer.
  • 00:24:15.236 --> 00:24:17.371
  • He wouldn't.He wouldn't.
  • 00:24:17.471 --> 00:24:21.442
  • People send themselves to hell.
  • 00:24:21.542 --> 00:24:23.244
  • ROBERT: There really is a heavenand there really is a hell,
  • 00:24:24.211 --> 00:24:27.948
  • but here's the good news.
  • 00:24:28.048 --> 00:24:29.850

  • 00:24:29.950 --> 00:24:33.721
