  • 0:12 - 0:13
    Hi,
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    I'm Kay Arthur, and I am
    so honored to be with
  • 0:17 - 0:20
    you. And I'm so
    appreciative of your
  • 0:20 - 0:23
    Juergen and Susan for th
    s wonderful opportunity
  • 0:23 - 0:26
    o share and to be able
    o do a seminar at yo
  • 0:26 - 0:29
    r envisions conferenc
    , leadership and the tim
  • 0:29 - 0:33
    s of crisis. Last night,
    I was standing at t
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    e centerpiece and
    y kitchen, fixing so
  • 0:36 - 0:40
    e food. And all of a sudd
    n I looked at the TV, a
  • 0:40 - 0:44
    d there the Capitol w
    s being broken into a
  • 0:45 - 0:48
    d violated, I mea
    , breaking windows a
  • 0:48 - 0:52
    d sitting in the chairs a
    d the Congress and, a
  • 0:52 - 0:55
    d that and taking pictur
    s and that and I though
  • 0:55 - 0:59
    , Lord, Lord, what is goi
    g on? I've been followi
  • 0:59 - 1:02
    g what's happening in t
    e United States of Americ
  • 1:02 - 1:05
    , with great interest
    n this run for t
  • 1:05 - 1:08
    e presidency and t
    e government and that, a
  • 1:08 - 1:12
    d I just really belie
    e that possible. I real
  • 1:12 - 1:14
    y believe that possibly N
    , I really believe th
  • 1:14 - 1:18
    t America is under t
    e judgment of God. You s
  • 1:18 - 1:21
    y Why? Well, I belie
    e America is under t
  • 1:21 - 1:23
    e judgment of God becau
    e America has turned i
  • 1:23 - 1:27
    s back on God. And you c
    n see that in our law
  • 1:27 - 1:30
    . What happened was,
    e were a nation founded
  • 1:30 - 1:32
    n the fear of God, we we
    e a nation that w
  • 1:33 - 1:36
    s Benjamin Franklin sai
    , Stop, stop, stop, we mu
  • 1:36 - 1:39
    t get on our knees and c
    y out to the Most High G
  • 1:39 - 1:41
    d for wisdom a
    d discernment. That's n
  • 1:41 - 1:45
    t happening anymore. Wh
    t has happened instead
  • 1:45 - 1:49
    s we have we have walk
    d away from the precepts
  • 1:49 - 1:53
    f God that He is laid do
    n in His Word. In 196
  • 1:53 - 1:56
    , prayer was removed fr
    m school with the Supre
  • 1:56 - 2:01
    e Court ruling. In 196
    , the Supreme Court rul
  • 2:01 - 2:04
    d eight to one th
    t Devotional Bible readin
  • 2:04 - 2:07
    , or other governme
    t sponsored religio
  • 2:07 - 2:09
    s activities and publ
    c schools a
  • 2:09 - 2:13
    e unconstitutional.
    n 1967, they had
  • 2:13 - 2:18
    a decriminalization
    f homosexuality. And wh
  • 2:18 - 2:21
    n it before it was
    a offense that you would
  • 2:21 - 2:27
    e the go to person for
    o to jail for in 1973, t
  • 2:27 - 2:31
    e Supreme Court legaliz
    d abortion nationally wi
  • 2:31 - 2:34
    h the Roe vs. Wa
    e decision, that is t
  • 2:34 - 2:38
    e most significant of a
    l of it. In Genesi
  • 2:38 - 2:41
    , chapter nine, God tel
    s us that life is sacre
  • 2:42 - 2:44
    . And he tells us that
    e is going to require t
  • 2:44 - 2:48
    e lifeblood of everyo
    e that is murdered, and a
  • 2:48 - 2:51
    e put to death illegall
    , or not, according to t
  • 2:51 - 2:54
    e Word of God. Next
    o that, you might want
  • 2:54 - 2:59
    o write numbers 353
    , because in that passag
  • 2:59 - 3:02
    , he talks about the law
    f the blood of venger. A
  • 3:02 - 3:06
    d he tells how when a man
    s or a person's blood
  • 3:06 - 3:10
    s not avenge by the blo
    d of venger, then God
  • 3:10 - 3:13
    s going to have to de
    l with them. And it sa
  • 3:13 - 3:17
    s his blood, their bloo
    , Christ to me from t
  • 3:17 - 3:20
    e ground, we're in troubl
    . We're in trouble. There
  • 3:20 - 3:22
    s a song we've got troub
    e here in River Cit
  • 3:23 - 3:26
    . Trouble with a capital
    . Because we are not m
  • 3:26 - 3:30
    n and women of the book.
    r we know it, we say th
  • 3:30 - 3:33
    t we and we read it a
    d that, but do we live
  • 3:33 - 3:36
    y every word that comes o
    t of the mouth of God, th
  • 3:36 - 3:39
    s is what God has ordaine
    . And if you're going to
  • 3:39 - 3:42
    e on solid ground with Go
    , and if you're going to
  • 3:42 - 3:46
    e used of God mightily, y
    u have to be a man or
  • 3:46 - 3:50
    a woman of the word. And
    I want to tell you fr
  • 3:50 - 3:53
    m Hosea chapter four, wh
    t God says about t
  • 3:53 - 3:57
    e importance of knowing h
    m in knowing his word.
  • 3:57 - 4:00
    o if you will turn in yo
    r Bibles to Hosea chapt
  • 4:00 - 4:04
    r four, or just at leas
    , least get it down. A
  • 4:04 - 4:08
    d listen, as I read to re
    d to you. in Hosea chapt
  • 4:08 - 4:11
    r four, it says, Liste
    , I'm telling you
  • 4:11 - 4:13
    o listen, he's telling y
    u to listen. Listen to t
  • 4:13 - 4:16
    e word of the Lord, o
    , sons of Israel, for t
  • 4:16 - 4:20
    e Lord has a case again
    t the inhabitants of t
  • 4:20 - 4:21
    e lan
  • 4:21 - 4:25
    Because there's no
    faithfulness there or
  • 4:25 - 4:30
    kindness or knowledge of
    God in the land. There's
  • 4:30 - 4:33
    no knowledge of God. He
    has spoken the the
  • 4:33 - 4:36
    Pentateuch because has
    been written and all of
  • 4:36 - 4:38
    that, but there's no
    knowledge of God in the
  • 4:38 - 4:40
    land. They're not paying
    attention to the Word of
  • 4:40 - 4:44
    God. And anytime we don't
    pay attention to the Word
  • 4:44 - 4:46
    of God, we're going to be
    in trouble. And we're
  • 4:46 - 4:48
    going to start living
    according to our own
  • 4:48 - 4:51
    thoughts in our own
    conditions and that and
  • 4:51 - 4:53
    we're going to sing
    praise songs and think
  • 4:53 - 4:56
    it's alright because we
    got goosebumps, but it's
  • 4:56 - 4:59
    not always bright. So
    this is what he says.
  • 4:59 - 5:03
    There's no faith. Bonus
    or kindness or knowledge
  • 5:03 - 5:06
    of God in the land, there
    is sweat, swearing,
  • 5:06 - 5:09
    deception, murder,
    stealing and adultery.
  • 5:09 - 5:13
    They employ violence. So
    that bloodshed follows
  • 5:13 - 5:17
    bloodshed. Therefore the
    land mourns, and everyone
  • 5:17 - 5:20
    who lives in it
    languishes along with the
  • 5:20 - 5:22
    beasts of the field and
    the birds of the sky and
  • 5:22 - 5:25
    the fish of the sea they
    disappear. Yet Let no one
  • 5:25 - 5:29
    find fault, nor offer
    reproof, for your people
  • 5:29 - 5:32
    are like those who
    contend with the priests,
  • 5:32 - 5:36
    you shall stumble by day.
    And the Prophet also will
  • 5:36 - 5:39
    stumble with you by
    night. And I will destroy
  • 5:39 - 5:41
    your mother. He's saying,
    I'm going to destroy
  • 5:41 - 5:45
    Israel, Israel's your
    mother, my people are
  • 5:45 - 5:50
    destroyed, for a lack of
    knowledge. Because you
  • 5:50 - 5:54
    have rejected knowledge,
    I will reject you from
  • 5:54 - 5:57
    being my priest, since
    you have forgotten the
  • 5:57 - 6:00
    law of your God. Now
    listen, I will forget
  • 6:00 - 6:03
    your children. They're in
    trouble. I mean, they're
  • 6:03 - 6:07
    in great, great trouble.
    And they're in trouble
  • 6:07 - 6:09
    because you see the key
    word, there's no
  • 6:10 - 6:13
    knowledge of God. And
    you've got to know what
  • 6:13 - 6:16
    God's word says, so that
    you can live accordingly.
  • 6:16 - 6:18
    And so that you can obey
    his commandments in the
  • 6:18 - 6:23
    statutes. His Word is, is
    a lamp unto our feet, and
  • 6:23 - 6:26
    it's a light unto our
    path. And if we don't
  • 6:26 - 6:28
    know what we're going to
    stumble in the darkness.
  • 6:29 - 6:31
    And so when you look at
    this, and this is what I
  • 6:31 - 6:35
    want to us to see today,
    and in this seminar, I
  • 6:35 - 6:39
    want us to see the
    importance of knowing the
  • 6:39 - 6:43
    Word of God and living by
    every word that comes
  • 6:43 - 6:47
    from the mouth of God. So
    from Hosea, this is what
  • 6:47 - 6:50
    I would like you to do.
    And this is throwing it
  • 6:50 - 6:53
    together, or quickly
    because of time, because
  • 6:53 - 6:55
    there's so much I want to
    say, all right, first of
  • 6:55 - 6:57
    all, understand what the
    fear of the Lord is,
  • 6:57 - 7:01
    there's no fear of God.
    Right? And fear is
  • 7:01 - 7:06
    respect. It's all its
    submission. It's, it's
  • 7:06 - 7:09
    bowing before it's
    bringing yourself low and
  • 7:09 - 7:13
    saying, your God, you're
    the all wise God, you're
  • 7:13 - 7:18
    omniscient, and I bow
    before you. And so this
  • 7:18 - 7:21
    is the condition of
    Israel at that time. And
  • 7:21 - 7:25
    in a sense, in a sense,
    America is there. And
  • 7:25 - 7:28
    Israel is there also
    because we both have our
  • 7:28 - 7:33
    roots in the Word of God,
    we both our fears of God
  • 7:33 - 7:36
    or our nation started
    that way. And now we're
  • 7:36 - 7:41
    in we're in a mass. So
    Isaiah is a contemporary
  • 7:41 - 7:45
    of Hosea. And so I'd like
    you to go to Isaiah,
  • 7:45 - 7:50
    chapter five. In Isaiah
    chapter five. He's
  • 7:50 - 7:54
    talking about what the
    people are like, and he's
  • 7:54 - 7:58
    talking about woes, woes,
    woes. And he says, woe to
  • 7:58 - 8:01
    those who rise early in
    the morning, excuse me is
  • 8:01 - 8:04
    first 11 that they may
    pursue strong drink, who
  • 8:04 - 8:07
    stay up late in the
    evening, that wine man
  • 8:07 - 8:09
    flame them, their
    banquets are accompanied
  • 8:09 - 8:12
    by liar and harp. They
    play the flute and buy
  • 8:12 - 8:17
    wine, but they do not pay
    attention to the deeds of
  • 8:17 - 8:21
    the Lord. Nor do they
    consider the work of his
  • 8:21 - 8:25
    hands. Now, listen very
    carefully. Therefore, my
  • 8:25 - 8:31
    people go into exile for
    their lack of knowledge.
  • 8:31 - 8:33
    In other words, they're
    going to go into
  • 8:33 - 8:36
    captivity, because they
    wouldn't believe God
  • 8:36 - 8:37
    because they have
    desecrated the
  • 8:39 - 8:42
    the word of the Lord and
    desecrated the honor of
  • 8:42 - 8:45
    God. There's no fear of
    God before their eyes.
  • 8:45 - 8:48
    And then he goes on and
    just listen and see. Does
  • 8:48 - 8:50
    this sound like our
    culture today? It sounds
  • 8:50 - 8:53
    like America today. Does
    it sound like Israel
  • 8:53 - 8:56
    today? Or you're from all
    over? Does it sound like
  • 8:56 - 9:04
    Germany today? We work in
    190 countries, and we're
  • 9:04 - 9:08
    in 99 languages, I
    believe. And so we're in
  • 9:08 - 9:10
    touch with all these
    people. We're teaching
  • 9:10 - 9:12
    them how to discover
    truth for themselves.
  • 9:13 - 9:16
    We're teaching them how
    to to deepen their
  • 9:16 - 9:19
    relationship with God
    through knowing his word
  • 9:19 - 9:22
    through studying his
    word. inductively. Not
  • 9:22 - 9:24
    reading the commentaries
    there. All right, but
  • 9:24 - 9:27
    first finding out what
    does the word of God have
  • 9:27 - 9:30
    to say, so that you
    understand that this is
  • 9:30 - 9:33
    God speaking, and it's
    breathe and you
  • 9:33 - 9:38
    understand everything
    that he is saying? He
  • 9:38 - 9:41
    says, woe to those who
    drank drag inequity with
  • 9:41 - 9:46
    corn. So with cords of
    faulted and sin as if
  • 9:46 - 9:50
    with cart ropes, woe to
    those verse 20, who call
  • 9:50 - 9:53
    evil good, and good evil.
    That's what's happening
  • 9:53 - 9:56
    today, who substitute
    darkness for light and
  • 9:56 - 9:59
    light for bitterness.
    Verse 21, woe to those
  • 9:59 - 10:02
    who are wise in their own
    Eyes first 22 woe to
  • 10:02 - 10:05
    those that are heroes in
    drinking wine. I mean,
  • 10:05 - 10:09
    people brag about getting
    getting drunk. And he
  • 10:09 - 10:11
    talks about what he's
    going to do. And he says
  • 10:11 - 10:16
    in verse 24, therefore,
    is a tongue of fire
  • 10:16 - 10:19
    consumes stubble, and dry
    grass collapses into the
  • 10:19 - 10:22
    flame. He says, so their
    root will we come like
  • 10:22 - 10:25
    rot and their blossom
    will blow away as does
  • 10:25 - 10:30
    for they have rejected
    the law of the Lord of
  • 10:30 - 10:34
    hosts, and they have
    despise the word of the
  • 10:34 - 10:37
    Holy One. On this
    account, the anger of the
  • 10:37 - 10:40
    Lord has burned out
    burned against his
  • 10:40 - 10:43
    people. And he stretched
    out his hand and struck
  • 10:43 - 10:48
    them down. From there. I
    would like you to put
  • 10:48 - 10:54
    down Isaiah, chapter 59.
    And go there and see if
  • 10:54 - 10:56
    this relates to the
    culture today, we're
  • 10:56 - 11:00
    talking about leadership
    in the time of crisis.
  • 11:00 - 11:04
    And in Isaiah chapter 59.
    He's talking about the
  • 11:04 - 11:07
    state of affairs again,
    and more. And you can see
  • 11:07 - 11:11
    this all the way through
    through the book of
  • 11:11 - 11:14
    Isaiah. It's an
    incredible book. It says
  • 11:14 - 11:20
    in Isaiah 59, verse 14,
    Justice is turned back,
  • 11:21 - 11:26
    and righteousness stands
    far away, for truth, has
  • 11:26 - 11:29
    stumbled in the streets,
    and uprightness cannot
  • 11:29 - 11:34
    enter. Yes, truth is
    lacking. And he who turns
  • 11:34 - 11:37
    aside from evil makes
    himself a pray, there is
  • 11:37 - 11:41
    no knowledge of God. And
    because there's no
  • 11:41 - 11:45
    knowledge of God, there's
    no fear of God. In this
  • 11:45 - 11:48
    marvelous passage right
    here on this segment in
  • 11:48 - 11:51
    Isaiah and Isaiah chapter
    eight and verse nine, you
  • 11:51 - 11:55
    have the promise of the
    Savior who is coming. And
  • 11:55 - 11:58
    then Isaiah leading up to
    that, he's saying, You
  • 11:58 - 12:02
    are not to fear what they
    fear or being dread of
  • 12:02 - 12:05
    it. It is the Lord of
    hosts whom you should
  • 12:05 - 12:10
    regard as holy, he shall
    be your fear, next to
  • 12:10 - 12:15
    that, put proverbs 2925.
    And look it up later, he
  • 12:15 - 12:18
    shall be your dread, then
    he shall become a
  • 12:18 - 12:21
    sanctuary. In other
    words, if you will cry
  • 12:21 - 12:24
    out to God, in any given
    situation, no matter
  • 12:24 - 12:27
    what's going on. And if
    you will run to God, His
  • 12:27 - 12:30
    arms will be open wide,
    and he you will be right
  • 12:30 - 12:32
    where he wants you.
    Because you are coming to
  • 12:32 - 12:35
    him, you're fearing him,
    you're respecting him,
  • 12:35 - 12:37
    you're honoring him.
    You're saying, I know
  • 12:37 - 12:38
    that your God,
  • 12:38 - 12:39
    and I know that
  • 12:39 - 12:41
    you can do according to
    your will in the army of
  • 12:41 - 12:43
    heaven and among the
    inhabitants of the earth.
  • 12:44 - 12:46
    I know none can stay your
    hand, I know none can say
  • 12:46 - 12:49
    to you, what are you
    doing? Because you are
  • 12:49 - 12:53
    God, you are sovereign.
    And once you give this
  • 12:53 - 12:55
    inside of you, and once
    you start to live and
  • 12:55 - 12:58
    look at every situation,
    and the light of
  • 12:58 - 12:59
    who God is,
  • 12:59 - 13:02
    I mean, life changes.
    Listen to what he says.
  • 13:03 - 13:05
    He says to the law into
    the testimony I hear is
  • 13:05 - 13:07
    the the work of Satan.
    Here's the work of the
  • 13:07 - 13:10
    liar, the deceiver, to
    the law, and to the
  • 13:10 - 13:15
    testimony, if they do not
    speak according to this
  • 13:15 - 13:19
    word. It is because they
    have no dawn. And other
  • 13:19 - 13:22
    words the sun has not
    come up, it's still in
  • 13:22 - 13:25
    darkness are still in
    darkness. He says to the
  • 13:25 - 13:27
    law in the testimony that
    they don't speak
  • 13:27 - 13:29
    according to well, how
    are you going to know if
  • 13:29 - 13:31
    they're speaking cording
    to it, if you don't know
  • 13:31 - 13:34
    the word of God, if you
    don't study the Word of
  • 13:34 - 13:39
    God. In Isaiah, chapter
    nine, he talks about the
  • 13:39 - 13:41
    prophecy of Jesus, the
    people sitting in
  • 13:41 - 13:44
    darkness are going to see
    a great light, the
  • 13:44 - 13:47
    darkness is going to be
    gone. And he tells them,
  • 13:47 - 13:51
    that for a child, for a
    child will be born to us
  • 13:51 - 13:54
    a son will be given. The
    government shall rest on
  • 13:54 - 13:56
    his shoulders, his name
    shall be called
  • 13:56 - 14:00
    Wonderful, Counselor,
    Mighty God, Prince
  • 14:00 - 14:03
    Eternal Father, Prince of
    Peace, there will be no
  • 14:03 - 14:08
    in no in to the increase
    of his government or of
  • 14:08 - 14:11
    peace on the throne of
    David in over his kingdom
  • 14:11 - 14:15
    to establish it, and
    uphold it with justice
  • 14:15 - 14:18
    and righteousness. We're
    going to see justice, not
  • 14:18 - 14:21
    right now. But when Jesus
    comes and he takes over
  • 14:21 - 14:23
    and he begins to rain
    upon this earth, we're
  • 14:23 - 14:26
    going to see justice and
    we're going to understand
  • 14:26 - 14:29
    it and it's going to be
    Hey, we were not fools.
  • 14:29 - 14:33
    He says, for them and
    forevermore, the zeal of
  • 14:33 - 14:37
    the Lord will accomplish
    this. I want you to go
  • 14:37 - 14:44
    from here with me to
    Matthew chapter four. And
  • 14:44 - 14:47
    I want to show you here's
    the prophecy about Jesus
  • 14:47 - 14:50
    coming. So when you come
    to Matthew chapter four,
  • 14:51 - 14:55
    this is what he tells us.
    And and I, oh, I wish I
  • 14:55 - 14:59
    had several hours with
    you. I just would really
  • 14:59 - 15:03
    absolutely I absolutely
    love that so that we
  • 15:03 - 15:06
    could talk and dialogue
    here, I've got you in my
  • 15:06 - 15:08
    kitchen, I can't even
    talk to you face to face,
  • 15:08 - 15:11
    or for your cup of
    coffee. All right. In
  • 15:11 - 15:16
    Matthew, chapter four,
    Jesus has been tempted by
  • 15:16 - 15:21
    the by Satan by the
    tempter. And in Jesus,
  • 15:21 - 15:25
    the tempter says to him,
    if you are the Son of
  • 15:25 - 15:28
    God, command that these
    bones be bread show off,
  • 15:28 - 15:30
    do a miracle, just say
    stones become bread, if
  • 15:30 - 15:32
    you're the Son of God
    didn't do anything. I
  • 15:32 - 15:35
    mean, God created
    everything. And so it
  • 15:35 - 15:40
    says, ends in Jesus
    answered and said, Now
  • 15:40 - 15:46
    listen, it is written, it
    is written, I've read it.
  • 15:46 - 15:50
    I know it. I know what it
    says. And of course, he's
  • 15:50 - 15:53
    the author of it, too.
    But it is written, do you
  • 15:53 - 15:56
    know what's written in
    this book, if you're
  • 15:56 - 15:59
    going to withstand what
    is ahead for us, and
  • 15:59 - 16:01
    these last days, you and
    I know if we know the
  • 16:01 - 16:04
    word of God, that is
    going to get worse and
  • 16:04 - 16:06
    worse, and many of us are
    going to have that
  • 16:06 - 16:09
    joyful, awesome privilege
    of possibly being
  • 16:09 - 16:12
    beheaded for Jesus
    Christ, of laying down
  • 16:12 - 16:17
    our lives, giving him the
    last thing that we can
  • 16:17 - 16:20
    can give him that shows
    our love and our trust,
  • 16:20 - 16:24
    and our hunger to be in
    his presence. Listen to
  • 16:24 - 16:27
    what he says. He says, It
    is written, Man shall not
  • 16:27 - 16:30
    live by bread alone, but
    on every word that
  • 16:30 - 16:34
    proceeds from the mouth
    of God. Now, where is
  • 16:34 - 16:36
    every word that proceeds
    from the mouth of God?
  • 16:36 - 16:38
    Right here, right here?
    This
  • 16:38 - 16:39
    is the book,
  • 16:39 - 16:44
    how many books make up
    this one book? 66 books?
  • 16:44 - 16:46
    All right, if you're to
    live on every word that
  • 16:46 - 16:49
    comes out of the mouth of
    God, how many books do
  • 16:49 - 16:53
    you know? You may know
    all this wonderful
  • 16:53 - 16:56
    worship of the songs and
    everything and, and I
  • 16:56 - 16:58
    checked some of them out,
    because some of them are
  • 16:58 - 17:00
    not biblical term, not
    according to the Word of
  • 17:00 - 17:04
    God. But listen, that is
    that is an exuberance You
  • 17:04 - 17:07
    and I have to be rooted
    and grounded in
  • 17:07 - 17:12
    established in the Word
    of God, you and I have to
  • 17:12 - 17:15
    know this word. We have
    to realize that
  • 17:15 - 17:17
    everything and he says
    this and Peter,
  • 17:18 - 17:21
    everything. The Second
    Peter, everything that
  • 17:21 - 17:24
    pertains to life and
    godliness is in this
  • 17:24 - 17:28
    book. And if you and I
    know it, then we know how
  • 17:28 - 17:32
    to live. We're working in
    refugee camps, all in all
  • 17:32 - 17:35
    these major refugee
    camps. We're doing we
  • 17:35 - 17:39
    have these studies, and
    and this one's building a
  • 17:39 - 17:41
    marriage that really
    works. This is the power
  • 17:41 - 17:44
    of knowing God. And so
    they're doing these
  • 17:44 - 17:47
    studies. And it's all
    Scripture. It's nothing
  • 17:47 - 17:49
    else, but scripture. And
    it's put together in a
  • 17:49 - 17:52
    way that you discern for
    yourself, what God is
  • 17:52 - 17:56
    saying it's inductive.
    And we had a Muslim woman
  • 17:56 - 17:58
    that came up to the ones
    that was leading it. And
  • 17:58 - 18:02
    she said to him, I need
    to talk to you May I talk
  • 18:02 - 18:04
    to you, my problems are
    very great. And he says,
  • 18:04 - 18:07
    You're on the break. And
    she says, No, they're too
  • 18:07 - 18:10
    great. And then he found
    out that her wife, he,
  • 18:10 - 18:13
    she was told by her
    mother, mother in law,
  • 18:13 - 18:16
    her husband was told by
    her mother in law, to
  • 18:16 - 18:19
    beat her every night
    before she went to bed.
  • 18:19 - 18:22
    So on the wedding night,
    he beats her. Well, this
  • 18:22 - 18:25
    has gone on, he beat her
    once so severely that the
  • 18:25 - 18:28
    baby died in the womb,
    and she thought she was
  • 18:28 - 18:31
    going to lose her life.
    And she said, If I
  • 18:31 - 18:34
    believe in Jesus, will my
    husband stop beating me?
  • 18:34 - 18:37
    And he says, No, I can't
    promise you that. And she
  • 18:37 - 18:40
    said, Well, if I if I
    believe in Jesus, Will
  • 18:40 - 18:43
    God keep the Muslims from
    killing me? And he says,
  • 18:43 - 18:47
    No. He says, Jesus said,
    If any man is going to
  • 18:47 - 18:52
    come after Me, let him
    deny himself, and take up
  • 18:52 - 18:57
    his cross and follow me.
    let him deny himself,
  • 18:58 - 19:03
    take up his cross, and
    follow me. In times of
  • 19:03 - 19:07
    crisis, no matter what's
    happening. Jesus calls us
  • 19:07 - 19:10
    she said, Oh, you mean
    you're telling me that if
  • 19:10 - 19:14
    I follow Jesus, I have to
    be willing to die? And he
  • 19:14 - 19:19
    said, Yes. And she
    believed her husband was
  • 19:19 - 19:21
    in another part of the
    camp because they'd moved
  • 19:21 - 19:22
    him over there because
    they were beating their
  • 19:22 - 19:25
    why he was beating her
    and she was so it was so
  • 19:25 - 19:29
    noisy. And so her
    husband, separated from
  • 19:29 - 19:33
    her, went to the same
    study building a marriage
  • 19:33 - 19:35
    that really works.
    They're listening to
  • 19:35 - 19:38
    Ephesians chapter five.
    Husbands, love your wives
  • 19:38 - 19:41
    as Christ loved the
    church and gave Himself
  • 19:41 - 19:47
    for it. And he begins to
    wail and wail because he
  • 19:47 - 19:51
    sees the darkness has
    passed, the light is come
  • 19:51 - 19:55
    and he sees and knows and
    hears the word of God,
  • 19:55 - 19:57
    and he got saved and
    eventually they were back
  • 19:57 - 20:02
    together. Oh, precious
    ones. For us this word in
  • 20:02 - 20:04
    the midst of this crooked
    and perverse generation,
  • 20:04 - 20:09
    study to show yourself to
    be approved unto God, a
  • 20:09 - 20:11
    workman that needeth not
    be ashamed, don't be
  • 20:11 - 20:15
    ashamed of him. The His
    Word is light, and his
  • 20:15 - 20:19
    word, his life, his word
    is the very bread by
  • 20:19 - 20:22
    which we live, live by
    it. And if you want some
  • 20:22 - 20:26
    help, I'll tell you how
    to get it. And I'm going
  • 20:26 - 20:29
    to tell you one brief
    story really quick,
  • 20:29 - 20:33
    because I want you to see
    this. We have beginner
  • 20:33 - 20:36
    inductive Bible studies
    in different languages.
  • 20:37 - 20:40
    And this one is called
    who created it, and it's
  • 20:40 - 20:43
    to teach them how to read
    and write. So this is the
  • 20:43 - 20:44
    first time they're
    reading and writing and
  • 20:44 - 20:47
    it's Genesis chapter one
    Barish. sheet, chapter
  • 20:47 - 20:51
    one. And so as they're
    doing it, this little boy
  • 20:51 - 20:56
    is writing the word, God.
    And all of a sudden, he
  • 20:56 - 21:00
    looks up, he's just
    completing the last
  • 21:00 - 21:04
    letter and God and he
    looks up, and he starts
  • 21:04 - 21:08
    to cry. And this is what
    he says, This is the
  • 21:08 - 21:16
    first word. I've read.
    And it's gone, that I've
  • 21:16 - 21:23
    read about. He saw the
    Word of God, he heard the
  • 21:23 - 21:27
    word of God, he embraced
    the Word of God. And he's
  • 21:27 - 21:30
    going to live for God.
    What about you? And what
  • 21:30 - 21:34
    about me? Our times are
    very interesting, aren't
  • 21:34 - 21:39
    they? The people that
    know their god, no matter
  • 21:39 - 21:42
    the times, read it, and
    Daniel, the people that
  • 21:42 - 21:46
    know their God will be
    able to stand firm, and
  • 21:46 - 21:49
    not just stand firm,
    they'll be able to take
  • 21:49 - 21:54
    action. The people who
    know their God, made this
  • 21:54 - 21:57
    become the most important
    book in your life, not
  • 21:57 - 22:00
    books about it, that made
    this become the most
  • 22:00 - 22:04
    important book in your in
    your life, and may it
  • 22:04 - 22:07
    become your life. And may
    you hold it fourth in the
  • 22:07 - 22:11
    midst of this crooked and
    perverse generation. And
  • 22:11 - 22:14
    may you hear well done my
    good and faithful
  • 22:14 - 22:18
    servant. I wish we could
    pray together. I wish I
  • 22:18 - 22:21
    could fix a cup of tea or
    a cup of coffee, the Lord
  • 22:21 - 22:25
    bush we have eternity
    together eternity. Just
  • 22:25 - 22:30
    think eternal life,
    because God sent His Son
  • 22:30 - 22:34
    who knew no sin, to be
    made sin for us, that you
  • 22:34 - 22:37
    and I might be made the
    righteousness of God in
  • 22:37 - 22:42
    him. Oh, beloved, be like
    the Apostle Paul. count
  • 22:42 - 22:44
    all things as loss for
    the excellence of the
  • 22:44 - 22:46
    knowledge of Jesus
    Christ. He says, For whom
  • 22:46 - 22:49
    I've suffered the loss of
    all things, and do count
  • 22:49 - 22:55
    them but dung, that I
    might win Christ when run
  • 22:55 - 22:56
    and win
