hello again dear kinfolk and thank you for joining me I'm pastor Visser of the covenant peoples ministry and church and today I'm pleased to be broadcasting live through Google Hangouts which by extension means YouTube but also today we're going to continue what I began a week ago on a failed livestream titled Luke special parables and therefore today we have entitled today's lecture Luke's unique parables because we didn't put a part one on that now you may have noticed that we're broadcasting an hour later than usual and this is a special event actually euro folk radio is graciously played last week's sermon titled ci fixation which ironically is quite hardcore and actually has a little bit more adult language within it because I was having problems actually connecting to their network you may be aware that euro folk radio is in the process of upgrading and the reason for that should be apparent unfortunately YouTube now has thought police that go around and they censor particular channels that they disagree with in fact this week they took down a dama katha missed and so that's probably just the beginning but without further ado we're actually tonight going to look at Luke special parables we're going to livestream this through euro folk radio as well and of course we have this live stream to think to a fake and usually at the beginning of the broadcast I like to go through particular books album covers even movies oftentimes and review them however today we're going to hold off on that because I actually did it on the first part of today's lecture Luke special parables and unfortunately that one was completely lost but the audio survives so if you're on YouTube watching this it will appear directly behind this one and CI fixation and because my notes are actually quite extensive I feel we should dive right in and then at the top of the hour when we broadcast in about nine minutes we'll pick back up and continue that way actually this God cast and live stream as you see it on YouTube will be more expansive and actually at the end of part one and Luke special parables I was looking at specific parables that appear only within the Gospel according to st. Luke and we left off looking at the rich young fool and the unfortunate neighbor and both of these I have taught in addition to every parable of Yahshua Messiah Jesus to Christ in 2014 so if you want in-depth examination on these particular parables just go to covenant peoples ministry org and in the audio section you can download any of those under the Luke's section and there's over a hundred and thirteen sermons covering the entirety of the Gospel of st. Luke but we left off basically looking at teachings of Christ as they appear within Luke's Gospel and nowhere else and some of these actually just have different terminology different verbage but they all relay a moral point and by way of review the reason Luke wrote his gospel is given in Luke chapter one verse one he says for as much as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us even as they delivered them unto us which from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word it seemed good to me also speaking having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first to write unto thee in order most excellent Theophilus and that if you will is the intention of Luke and Luke because he was highly educated because he was a medical doctor was expansive in what he wrote just as he set board to do it seemed good to me Luke says having had a perfect understanding to give my take on these things so in short and by way of review Luke basically took Matthew Mark and John and added what he had learned at the feet of Paul because Luke after all was a close friend to Paul the second generation Christian and as a result Luke is the most experienced of gospel of all for and personally one of my favorite so we looked at certain particular statements in the first part Christ saying don't judge because in what manner you're judged you'll be judged in return also teaching that a tree is known by their proverbial fruit and this week especially in light of what we've seen in Virginia if we would judge proverbial trees by what they do not what they say we could avoid a lot of woes so bear with me deer can smoke it's actually the hottest day of the year here in Georgia and it hasn't rained so it's extremely hot even with the air conditioning law we looked at Yahweh's grace now I'd like to look at another teaching it's found in Luke chapter 14 and it's found as I said only here but beginning in verse 12 then said Jesus also unto him that bade him when they'll make us a dinner or a supper call not by friends nor thy brethren neither thy kinsmen nor thy rich neighbors less they also bid thee again and a recompense be made of thee but when thou makest a feast call the poor the maimed the lame and the blind why and thou shalt be blessed now that should be common sense but unfortunately it's not the way of this world definitely not the way of this current era 2017 where a majority of our people judge according to appearances and perhaps even worse oftentimes according to how much a man makes because how much a man makes is not the litmus test for their success we could say and he also continues and thou shall be blessed for they cannot recompense thee for thou shalt be recompense at the resurrection of the just some manuscripts render resurrection as repay therefore you will be paid when your pay and when is that well Judgment Day something I taught from this very venue countless times but verse 15 continuously narratives and when one of them heard that sat at meat with him he said unto Him blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God then said Christ sensual a certain man made a great supper and bade many and he said a certain at supper time to say unto them that were bidden come for all things are now ready and they began all with one consent began to make an excuse the first set unto Him I have bought a piece of ground and I must needs go and see it I pray have me excused and another said I have just married a wife and therefore I cannot come so that servant came and showed his Lord all those things then the master of the house being angry to his servant go out quickly into the streets and the lanes of the city and bring hither the poor and the maimed and the halt meaning lame and the blind and the servant said Lord it is done as thou hast commanded yet there is no room and the Lord this is Jesus Christ in contact said unto the servant go out into the highways and the hedges and compel them to come in that my house may be filled for I say unto you pay close attention this is the Gospel according to st. Luke chapter 14 verse 24 that none of those men that were bidden shall taste of my supper which men are those those that were bidden or invited at the very beginning that would be the Israelites in context and you should be able to see from this parable and the teaching that sure to help the poor that God obviously is not a respecter of persons but oftentimes we as the Israelite men women and children that's all we can do and I suppose in many ways there's nothing wrong with that because that's the way many of us were risen up so we're going to look more at this in depth we're at the top of the hour it is now time for me to begin tonight's particular livestream and Euro boat radio broadcast again titled Luke's unique parables and it's really a topic that is so expansive but the culmination of many years worth of work my intention with tonight's broadcast is to actually give you an overview of Bees and make you familiar with them if you've never learned these parables of Christ obviously there was more to that parable than helping the poor the teaching is if Yahweh God is not a respecter of persons then neither can we be that is within our own ranks within the Adamic and Israelite race it's now at the top of the hour I'll begin the livestream thank you for joining us for the Covenant gathering here on euro folk radio calm our host is pastor Visser from the covenant people's ministry org we hope that you are inspired to grow in faith and wisdom by studying the scriptures with us this written gather the people sanctify the congregation assemble the elders and gather the children so let us gather together for this Bible study hour with our host pastor Visser on the euro folk radio network hello again dear Ken spoken thank you for joining me I'm pastor vissa of the covenant peoples ministry and outreach located in beautiful downtown Brooks Georgia and today we're going to continue technically the second part of my examination of a study we began a week ago titled Luke special parables now if you're too dim for that unfortunately was a failed livestream and we have no reason or idea why that happened today we did a few test streams and it looks like everything's going well that is hopefully y'all they be blessed but last week we looked at Luke's intention and I technically reiterated it during the pre-show today July 6 August 16 2017 the time is 802 and the reason by way of review is because Luke wanted to give a more expansive account than what was known at the time what Matthew Mark and John had written and as a result Luke's parables are not only usually more expansive than are found in the other three Gospels but they have the distinction at least during the travel narrative that is between Luke chapter 9 and Luke chapter 19 to have parables that are found nowhere else and teachings that are found nowhere else within scripture and so today we're going to do things a little differently last time we use the new American Standard of the version of the Bible to actually put it in layman's terms today we'll be using the authorized King James Version of the Bible and we're going to be going in order of importance at least according to my own estimation that way we can conclude this two-part look into Luke's parables again today is titled Luke's unique parables and it's technically the continuation of last Wednesday's lecture so the first parable that we're going to look at full length coming out the gate is one of the most important and that is the parable of the wedding feast it is found in Luke chapter 14 it begins in verse 7 we learned Jesus put forth a parable to those that were bidden winny mark how they chose out the cheapest rooms saying unto them pay close attention because already the narrative is set the context is given this parable of the wedding feast that we're looking at in Luke chapter 14 was given because Christ saw and marked meaning noted that they gave the best places because they were respecting men and women not far removed from today's society where we look up to celebrities and billionaires while Donald Trump and say well they must be a success right well that's not often times the case the parable begins in verse 8 when they are bidden of any man to a wedding set not down in the highest room less the more honorable man than thou be bidden of him now stop for a moment and actually reflect on this teaching because there's much irony in this if we respect persons then all it really takes on the part of the man respecter is for someone to come along with a little greater car little nicer clothes and a lot more money and then they go and they say you need to step down because this place is reserved right for the special now here in Atlanta believe it or not there is a church led by a Negro preacher and I use that term loosely known as creflo a dollar names quite fitting actually because when you walk into this particular church there's literally ATMs at all the entrances when you walk in and they will seat you in that particular black church according to how much money you make so you technically get front-row seats if you're a millionaire and if you're a peasant or a peon or even worse maimed right you said at the very back but that's not the way of God right because God judges two hearts the intents of men so he says lest a more honorable man than thou be bidden of him and he that bade thee and come and say to thee give this man place and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room or the lowest place Christ says in verse 10 commandment pay close attention but when you are bidden go and sit down in the lowest room that when he that bade thee cometh he may say unto you friend go up higher then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that seat sit that meet with thee for whosoever this is the linchpin and the punchline of the parable for whosoever exalts himself shall be abased and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted now why is that important because my friends this word of God that we're looking at today is so unlike any words that are written by men it is truly a supernatural book and in that I mean there are certain things within the Word of God that only a deity like Yahweh could command for example circumcision no man's gonna come and say hey sounds like a great idea let's do that but that pertains to the flesh under the New Covenant it spiritually applied and almost everything Christ taught centered around this teaching whoso shall be first down here will be last in the kingdom to come hear the teaching is whosoever exalts himself shall be abased a base means humbled brought down so on the teaching as we've already covered in Luke chapter 6 that a tree is known by the fruit that they bring forth if a man has no humility and is not humble we already know from the Word of God that that man will be brought low he will be abased he will be the least within the coming kingdom just as Christ taught those that's tried to be first number one will ultimately be last with in the coming kingdom of Yahweh God and that's part of what we're looking at in this parable of the wedding feast because we know from the book of Revelation roundabout chapter 19 that a New Jerusalem comes out of edit adorned as a bride well what do we learn that in the kingdom they who are first will be last so common sense dictates that it should be hardwired this morality of choosing the lowest places so that we can be exalted and it's actually common sense because you run a greater risk of being invited to sit in the cheapest seats in a moral world that is when you're already humbled and choose the lowest that's what Christ was Christ clearly came a servant unto all Israel and all out of Minds the Gentiles by extension and we prove just last week that Yahweh God ultimately at this wedding feast will come in and serve the servants so the free thinking man says well or so they think I don't believe in a book I don't need a book to define morality but all these things I've pointed out to you are not the words of a man who's lifted up but the words of Yeshua Jesus Christ who's telling you don't be so lift it up so lay this over when it comes to celebrities who really believe or politicians for that matter that they're high and mighty and so well respected within the world do they display this characteristic hardly ever but most of them think everyone else are peons and they deserve the highest seats at the proverbial wedding feast so that's one that I feel is important he continues on actually he says when thou makes a dinner or a supper call not by friends nor thy brethren neither thy kinsmen nor thy rich neighbors unless they also bid thee again and recompense be made unto thee but when they'll make us a feast called the poor the maimed the lame and the blind and then shall be blessed so that's something to consider how can we personally be blessed by doing good to our racial kinsfolk those that may be poor downtrodden those that may be lame not possessing the ability to walk and those that may be blind literally and figuratively my friends because in this era many people are figuratively blind they have an awoken get orb in red pill and that is what we hear on euro folk radio and covenant people's ministry are attempting to do that is wake people up part of that is not lying to them because that's what you get in the Jewish media life but lie that somehow or another if you make lots of money if you're a great actor or a politician your life will be a bed of roses but that's not the case actually there's a higher statistic of suicides amongst the rich then there are the poor I wonder why that is because money is not the answer it's not the root of all happiness then thou shalt be blessed and they cannot recompense meaning repay me for thou shalt be repaid at the resurrection of the just so enough on the parable of the wedding feast but on this theme of whose greatest within the coming kingdom it should be common sense that the greatest within the coming Kingdom is the least on earth and in many ways Christian identity is just that it's never going to be generally accepted because we know from the four Gospels that even the message of Christ was never accepted in mass and in growth by the population and so we're going to look at the parable of the Pharisee and the publican found only here in Luke's Gospel and just as important as this parable of the wedding feast because it also teaches human if we are humble if we are meek yahweh god will be near unto us but if we're egotistical here rendered exalt or exalt hates ourselves that were walk around in exaltation of ourselves as opposed to Yahweh God we're an abomination with it as eyes so what's a publican a polite way of saying a tax collector or a sinner so turn with me to Luke chapter 18 and we're going to look at this beautiful parable because it actually teaches again contrary to the thinking of man we tend to think well we're within this movement I'm a preacher I've got 20 years right I'm greater than this lowly sinner but that's not the way Christ was Christ actually dined with sinners and publicans to the children of the Pharisees who would marvel at that and let me interject they should have never marbled in the first place the barren seas espoused the law they claimed to teach the Mosaic law and the Mosaic law taught what Christ is teaching all along to be humble to be meek and to go after those that might be poor lame blind or cast out so let's look at the parable of the Pharisee and the publican it begins here and verse 9 Jesus spoke this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous and despised others again the context is set this parable that we're about to look at was given because Christ was around particular men and women who were lifted up and thought they were all together greater than everyone else the context is given a certain a certain magnitude of Israelite and actually in context when you compare it to the other three Gospels this was given against a Pharisee common sense it's a parable the Pharisee and the tax collector but notice verse 9 in chapter 18 of Luke here says that Christ spoke this parable not only because they trusted within themselves that they were righteous meaning through the law and not through grace but they despised others very important because we run that risk and I'll tell you from experience most of my detractors and enemies throughout the last 20 years of preaching haven't necessarily been the Jew that they are they're incognito but they go around claiming to be white people white men brethren okay but then at the end of it all like my ex co-host for example or one of my ex moderators you learn very quickly that they despise you so this parable was given because of that not only because they thought they were so self-righteous they didn't really need a redeemer and would never go around sinners but they despised them don't despise sinners that's the context picking it back up in verse 10 Christ's parable is this two men went into the temple to pray the one a Pharisee and the other Republican now you don't get much more different than those two classes a Pharisee would have been highly respected they would have been like those in the parable of the wedding feast who chose the cheapest seats but the tax collector was virtually seen in Judea worse than a prostitute because most oftentimes the tax collectors were Israelite men and they were seen as traitors because they collected taxes from the Israelite men women and children as they came in and out of Jerusalem for the feast and the Pentecost and the Tabernacles and so they were spit upon they were disdain the publican or the tax collector was one of the worst at least foreseeable in the eyes of the Pharisee but this parable was given in a Pharisees house and against the Pharisees that trusted within themselves that they were righteous and despised tax collectors now I don't need to remind you that one of the Gospel writers was a tax collector and that the Pharisees would marvel and say that Christ dines with sinners and publicans that one teaching right there tells you that while the publicans or the tax collectors were Israelite by flesh they were ostracized and exorcised from common Society so much that they had to sit down with whores and the worst of the worst okay so I really want to spend time here because we run that risk of thinking well this man eats pork this man observes the Sabbath on the first day of the week right they're so stupid they're so ignorant are they really in light of the teaching that they who are first shall be last now remember in the eyes of the world and in the eyes of the men women and children that heard this fair this parable at the time it was given the Pharisee would have been seen as the highest the publican as the lowest Christ continuous in verse 11 the Pharisee stood up and prayed thus with himself god I thank thee that I'm not as other men are extortioners unjust adulterers or even as this publican literally in the parable pointing to the tax collector and saying god I thank you that you didn't make me like this piece of human refuge this piece of garbage he was so lifted up the Pharisee that he prayed within himself not necessarily to yell like God so I ask you who do you think it was throughout all this Pharisees life that he prayed to in the first place and who do you think it is most oftentimes not the modern Pharisee within Christian identity praise - it's not Yahweh it's themselves and it usually is a model prayer just like this thank God I'm not like this a Pharisee who should understand they who are first shall be last and not only that teaching if they missed it love your neighbor as yourself that wasn't brought by Christ that was the Mosaic law so the Pharisee stands up and says thank God I'm not like this sinner right verse 12 the Pharisee continues I fast twice in the week I give tithes of all that I possess and the publican standing afar off would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven but he smote upon his breast saying God be merciful unto me a sinner now in life of those two contrasting prayers one from a tax collector and one from a Pharisee who do you think will obtain entrance who do you think will go away justified into the upcoming kingdom of Yahweh God the flesh most often times and in honesty usually dictates well must be the Pharisee was an Israelite he knew the law even says right here he fessed twice a week and he ties of everything he got that denotes perfect observance of the Mosaic law so at the end of the day do you think y'all way God is gonna let the Pharisee in because he observed the Mosaic law or do you think he's gonna let the public in it let's say Christ says in birth 14 I tell you Christ this man referencing the publican went down to his house justified rather than the Pharisee for everyone that exalts himself shall be abased and he that humble himself shall be exalted now you should be able to notice that the moral of both of these parables is identical at least according to Luke chapter 14 and 18 and that moral is this whosoever exalts himself shall be brought down so what can we learn well several things but the most obvious is if we walk around in the proper spirit we'll rely more on grace which is exactly what the publican did he said have mercy upon me a sinner but the Pharisee couldn't see sin within himself and in fact self justified through the Mosaic law he fasted twice a week he gave tithes of everything Yahweh God gave him that's all outlined in the law what did the publican do well he had a life of betrayal he had a life of sin he had a life of collecting taxes which is a polite way of saying serving zog he would be today's equivalent of a census taker working for the IRS and Christ says that tax collector that publican goes home justified never the Pharisee why number one were not saved by the law number two the Pharisee had the wrong mindset he was one just like Christ said who was exalting himself and had nothing to exalt himself over because at the end of the day what it requires is given right here the most important part of the parable of the Pharisee and the publican it's given in the sinner's prayer the publican says while he stands afar off because remember they both went to the temple so that denotes that tax collector didn't even feel like he was worthy of going into God's house but enough on that the prayer is this God be merciful to me a sinner one sentence short to the point and honest what is the Pharisee saying he says I thank thee that I'm not as other men as extortioners or the unjust adulterers or even as this publican I fast twice in the week I give tithes of all I possess you get the point the Pharisee literally would stand up and virtue signal to God and the sinner said well be merciful unto me what is mercy Grace have grace have mercy upon me a sinner was it the fact that he relied on grace no but the acknowledgement that he was a sinner the baracy was ten times the center as a tax collector I can prove that from Scripture they only conspired continually to murder Jesus Christ they threw him off a cliff they conspired continually and you know the story Judas succumb to that so what else can be taught on this scene turn with me to the 135th Psalm we're gonna drive home a point that's not found within Luke but it really proves the point that Christ is making here in Luke Luke 135 verse 2 praise ye Yahweh praise ye the name of Yahweh praise Him o servants of Yahweh he that stand in the house of Yahweh in the courts of the house of our God praise the Lord for the Lord is good sing praises unto his name for it what Yahweh is pleasant the Pharisee he's taught the Psalms considered the law and the prophets the Pharisees would have understood that did that Pharisee in today's parable of the Pharisee and the publican acknowledge God now he only acknowledged self he said thank God you didn't create me like this man and that may be the story of your life I'm really digressing here because this parable is not only one of my importance my favorite but it's also one of the most important in my estimation so let's move to the unjust judge as it time is getting away from me Luke is truly such an expansive topic that I could probably do another 20 parts on this but today will be the conclusion one way or another the unjust judge is found right here in Saint Luke chapter 18 but right at the very beginning and he Jesus Christ spake a parable unto them to this end that men ought to always pray and to not thank again just like to two examples before it the context is given the stage is set Christ is giving the parable of the unjust judge because he's wanting to relay the truth or the item i'ts in general which includes israel ought to pray without ceasing okay is that foreign to the Word of God not at all it also was taught within the Psalms saying there was in a city a judge which feared not God neither regarded men and there was a widow in that city and she came unto him saying avenge me of mine adversary so put that into modern day terms most judges today are just like this they don't fear Yahweh and they don't regard men that is usually unless they're rich men and they want to pay them on okay but usually a judge a true bona fide judge is meant to be impartial God is that impartial judge and that's part of why he's not a respecter of persons that's part of why he does not show favor in judgment and part of why Paul would teach and Galatians there's neither Judean nor Greek all are one in Christ to Yahweh God so pray without ceasing is the context now God obviously is the judge who then is the winner could it be the Israelite men women and children who were divorced given a bill of divorcement by Yahweh God and Yahweh God then removed his face and said you're basically to paraphrase dead unto me well that's the context of what Christ is teaching right here that men ought to always pray pray without ceasing okay now is prayer like a lucky rabbit's foot not at all but in context Christ is about to teach that if you pray without ceasing as you're instructed if you do as you're told then your requests will obviously be respected by Yahweh God but not without a lot of badgering so think on those things I'll be back with you in exactly one minute and if you feel so inclined to support this ministry information will be given during this intermission thank you for listening to the covenant

midnight for my friends that are all tuning in in London England and before that intermission we were actually looking at Christ teaching on prayer and his parable of the unjust judge or what some could consider the unjust judge we left off in Luke chapter 18 but verse three there was a widow in that city and she came unto that judge saying avenge me of mine adversary some manuscripts put vindicate me of mine enemy by the way you look at it the analogy is the same today in today's current era when someone does us wrong usually we end up going unfortunately to a civil court and we have a judge preside over our case that's basically the context of what Christ is putting down and he says in verse four and he that is the judge would not for a while but afterward he said within himself though I fear not gone nor regard man yet because this Widow troubles me I will avenge her lust by her continual coming she weary me now perhaps you've heard the old proverb or adage the squeaky wheel gets the oil and that's basically what Christ is teaching here and in context the teaching is that you can never pray enough okay but that often times when you feel that you're not getting an answer to your prayer it might be because you're not praying enough and Yahweh God isn't getting this mindset saying well because I don't regard other gods and Yahweh doesn't and I don't regard men I'm no respecter of persons I'll avenge her lest by her continual coming she weary me can you wear got out no not at all and that's what Christ is teaching and that's why he actually continues to say in verse six hear what the unjust judge saith what does he say shall not God avenge his own elect which cry day and night unto him though he bear long with them that right there in a nutshell is the entirety of the teaching it's Revelation chapter 6 if you turn there with me very quickly revelation 6 verse 10 and they cried with a loud voice saying how long O Lord holy and true dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell upon the earth so revelation is considered Jesus gospel the gospel of Christ but no that's what Christ is giving the parable in context to we need to cry out like this we need to be continually and my friends especially now in prayer to Yahweh God because the events that happened in Charlottesville Virginia while they may have awoken of you they're probably likely going to use that and actually have now three days later in retrospect to remove many Confederate monuments around the world in fact Baltimore took down a bunch and they're even considering blowing up Stone Mountain or sandblasting Lee off of it would you be interesting did any of you see the end of Planet of the eight well but this is the point shall not God who sang this the unjust judge the judge that didn't even believe in God in the first place Christ says hear what the unjust judge said shall not God avenge his own elect which cry day and night so number one you must be elect that means you must be the right pedigree either adamite or Gentile or Israelite the elect are called and chosen but not only that cry day and night unto them though God bear long with us so that be the point oftentimes we pray we don't get a direct answer right when we want it and then we get upset at God or we feel like our prayers aren't answered but don't stop praying because the context is that men ought to pray and never faint meaning never stop so Christ taught pray without ceasing long before Paul did within his epistles so let's move on from the unjust judge last week when we were looking at the first part of today's lecture Luke's special parables I told you very clearly that Christ Himself never could gende the concept of slavery okay now in his teaching it could be applied on both a physical level or a spiritual level for example Christ teaching that whosoever commits sin becomes a servant of sin or when Christ says that man can't serve two masters he'll hate the one cling to the other that's basically teaching on this concept of masters and servants so Christ expect or respected the hierarchy judges publicans right those types of things render unto Caesar he didn't necessarily denounce them but on that same topic okay clearly taught spiritual servitude that the I will draw irony of this and this is my own estimation forgive me dear consult it is hot in here is that so many of us want to be master but not served so turn with me one chapter back to Luke chapter 17 this particular parable begins in verse 7 crisis if you had faith as a grain of mustard seed you might say under this chick of mine tree be thou plucked up by the root and thou be planted in the sea and it should obey you but which of you having a servant plowing or beating cattle will say unto Him by and by when he has come in from the field oh go and sit down to meet that's not the way it works Christ continues verse 8 and will not rather say unto Him make ready wherewith I'm ASA and gird thyself and serve me until I have eaten I have drunken and then afterward bow shall eat and drink what is Christ teaching on here clearly the concept of master and serpent Christ would teach that the serpent is not above his master okay but no master comes in after he commands his servant to do something in context the Mosaic law and Bankim reward them what reward is there in doing what is considered the whole duty of man no rather it works the other way around the servant is to say to Yahweh God at his return let me serve you so this parable actually continues master and servant verse 9 does he the master thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him I trow not trow in the King's English is a polite way of saying think so Jesus Christ is clearly saying does God at his return thank you for doing what's commanded you in the Mosaic law I don't think so something to remember in flight of us because I know we NCI are so pro no me and in fact I teach this in the past the law is essential it is our schoolmaster it's meant to bring us to Christ but the law will never circumvent grace Christ fulfilled many of the blood rituals the Senate own of the Mosaic law and we don't have time today but notice does he thank him no Christ says in verse 10 here in Saint Luke chapter 17 so likewise ye when ye shall have done all the things that are commanded you say we are all unprofitable servants we have done only that which is our duty to do now I really want to stress that point because we tend to think you know hey we keep the law are we any greater the Pharisees kept the law in today's examination or the Pharisee and the publican did it save them in the end Oh what saves you in the end Ephesians chapter 2 verse 8 you're saved by grace through pay so you earn grace through that but at the end of it all you're saved by grace through faith so one thing I want you to consider when looking at this Romans chapter 3 verse 12 Paul says over here they are all gone out of the way they are together become unprofitable there is none one that does good no not even one who's the bay in context well if you study out Romans chapter three you know who has written to the Romans come and since white people okay now we're unprofitable but the trick is not being self deluded into thinking we don't eat pork we have a brownie port you're no greater than the center at the end of the day why a sin committed and ignorance is technically not a sin at all so when the mouth doctor hung on the cross to the side of Jesus Christ and Yahshua said this day you'll be with me in paradise that mouth doctor never knew the law never knew baptism and in the parable of the Pharisee the publican stood afar off but he went home justified he never followed the law in fact he lived a life of sin but he acknowledged he was a sinner therefore he was susceptible and able to obtain grace why faith bottom line the Pharisee only had faith within himself so much that he prayed was in himself not to Yahweh God the publican did not and so that's one thing I want you to consider there's many others while you're here in Romans consider a statement that's found in chapter 11 in Romans chapter 11 verse 35 who hath first given to him and it shall be recompense unto him again for of him and through him and to him or all things to whom be glory forever amen man reaps what they sell my friend and on this theme of being a master and a servant I would rather be considered in the eyes of the world a slave to Jesus Christ then a free man right on a liberal college campus they were first shell finish last now unfortunately dear kinfolk we have within our movement something known as no Devils and ironically when you really study out the no devil theology you will see that it's identical to the Jewish belief of yet Sahara which is basically why Jewish boys have Bar Mitzvahs they don't believe in a literal saint they believe in something considered spiritual impediment okay and those men that profess my title and they come in and they tell you that hell is not real that the devil's not real okay are not really far removed from what the Kabbalah teaches regarding heaven and hell and the accuser of the Jewish enemy in that I mean is it unique that white people ourself saying we are Israel and everyone else are mud subhumans wind and Negroes and the Jews both do the same not really not at the end of the day so when looking at them they will come in and attempt to explain to you that hell is not real even though hell was taught by Christ they'll split hairs and say oh well it really means Gehenna no it doesn't and when you look at shio the resting place of the dead when you read The Book of Enoch and when you look at the next parable we're gonna move into which is the rich man and Lazarus you will suddenly see that eternal torment is real no matter how much the no devil false prophet bastard terror wants to explain it away that cannot be explained now this is found in Luke chapter 16 but it begins in verse 19 there was a certain rich man and he was clothed in purple and fine linen and he fared sumptuously every day what is sumptuously it means he lived in luxury that means he was not in any form of what that he had all his needs met and that if you will is the story of almost every rich man that has ever lived but who did you like all the poor the meek the lowly the contrite those are whom Yahweh God is near untrue so this certain man he lived scrumptiously verse 20 here in Luke 16 and there was a certain beggar named Lazarus which laid at his gate and was full of sores and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table moreover the dogs came and licked Lazarus swords put this in context rich man big house nice fence and at the gate of that rich man's house was Lazarus now Lazarus had leprosy and the dogs would come and they would lick at his sores every day and how many times do you reckon that rich man walked by her how many times do you reckon that poor man prayed and cried out to the rich man saying help me and how many times do you think that rich man had the opportunity to help and did not the second the biblical definition of sin to him that knows to do good and do with it not it is he was full sores Lazarus sat at the gate verse 21 and desiring to be fed with the crumbs the dogs came and licked his sores and it came to pass that the beggar died and was carried by the Angels unto Abraham's bosom and the rich man also died and was buried and in hell I'm gonna stop right there what is the narrative say is there a hell there is a hell what is the word well we don't really have time today but the word is Hades okay it means the abode of the Dead according to dr. strong now men will come and say there's no help you can't get around Hades you can't get around Sheol Gehenna maybe but the other three you care and this is a parable of Christ a parable in which he teaches on Hell being involved across the gap from paradise two classes of men a beggar or poor downtrodden man an enrichment a rich man that lived above and beyond his means and like Richmond today didn't deserve to live as scrumptiously as he did but remember Christ taught woe unto ye rich he have received your reward that means oftentimes if we're rich by ill-gotten gains or like this rich man in the parable of Lazarus who lives so scrumptious ly or luxuriously but find no time for others you're gonna find yourself within the pits of hell so verse 23 here in Luke chapter 16 in hell he lifted up his eyes being in eternal torment sees Abraham afar off and Lazarus within his bosom remember the poor beggar lived a life of begging he was probably spit upon and seen as one of the lowliest forms of life by the rich man but when the beggar died he went to heaven a polite way of saying Abraham's bosom but where did the rich man go he'll to places contrasted but in plain sight Lazarus looked up in hell some far-off and in the Greek the word is Hades and cried and said father Abraham have mercy upon me and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue for I am tormented eternally in this flame now what have we confirmed they who are first or last they who exalt themselves will be humbled now here's a rich man who had every opportunity as he lived to do right by the beggar but yet when he finds himself in hell he's crying out to bother Abraham saying what send the beggar that I fucked over in life and how good do you think it's going to do at this point it won't so let's look at this he says I'm in torment send Lazarus the beggar with a drip of water on his finger to put it to my tongue because I'm in torment because I'm in claim because I'm the first truly finished last if they don't live right if they don't love their neighbor as himself and do like we cover today in the parable of the wedding feast invite the blind the maimed the lame if the rich man would have understood that he wouldn't have found himself in hell but when you go to hell or when your judge to go under Abraham's bosom that's your final resting place after the second death therefore you can't come back so the rich man cries out father Abraham father Abraham send him because I'm thirsty and Abraham said remember thou that in by my time you received many good things and likewise Lazarus received evil things but now he's comforted and thou art tormented thou art torment think about this concept how can you even get around this okay they're gonna come and say God's not sadistic let me tell you something one of the rewards of the righteous as per the Mosaic law is thou shalt see the wicked cut off and rejoice if there were no hell there could be no eternal Kingdom because hell and the destruction of the wicked is a promise that God gave long ago so I want to turn over to James before we pick back up this narrative and close today's show but the general epistle of james james chapter 5 but verse 5 you've lived in pleasure on the earth james writing and have been wanting you have nourished your hearts as in the day of slaughter you have condemned and killed the just and he does not resist you something to consider abraham's answer to the rich men is you and your life basically to paraphrase were given nothing but good things nothing but grace but you neglected to get that was given you you had this beggar Lazarus at your gate every day begging for a morsel you saw the dogs licking his source right why then would there be grace bestowed unto the rich man in hell when the wicked never even see the face of God in judgment another promise and something else we confirmed right here it doesn't mean you can't see them cuz Abraham clearly saw the rich man verse 26 here in Saint Luke chapter 16 and beside all this between us and you a great gold fixed so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot neither can you pass unto us they would come from fence then said he that is the rich man in torment in Hades I pray be therefore father that they would have sent him to my father's house so let's consider this he's already told know the rich man's not getting a drip of water he's not going to have his quench his thirst quenched there's a great gulf fixed between Abraham's bosom the kingdom of God and hell right and none can pass so then the rich man starts to reason within himself well I found myself in hell and it's too late for me maybe I can send him unto my father but Abraham clearly answered him and said there's a great goal fixed you can't pass you can't go back and forth then said he I pray therefore that you would send a much to my father's house verse 28 for I have five brethren the number of grace that he may testify unto them lest they also come into this place of eternal torment Abraham said unto him they have Moses and the prophets let them hear them and in many ways that's a perfect response if you think about why was the lawgiver why was the word given new or old testament because Christ clearly said I ever told you all things James says the Word of God is like a mirror and the natural man looks into it he sees what manner of man he is but because he's condemned he walks away and instantly forgets what manner of man he is so you have been foretold all things you have Moses you have the addition of the New Testament but no grace given postmortem there's no way of crossing that goal there's no purgatorio where men can pray you out of the abode of the Dead and thus we learn Abraham said they have Moses they have the prophets let them hear him but the rich man said nay father Abraham but if one went to them from the dead they will repent and he said unto him if they hear not Moses and the prophets neither will they be persuaded even though one rose from the dead Jesus Christ my point is you have to have that foundation that's what we learned today and the teaching from Abraham in Christ's own parable is that they can hear Moses if they can hear the prophets the nearer will they be persuaded though one rose from the dead now who rose from the dead there were technically only two biblical examples of one was the other Lazarus the brother to Mary and Martha whom Christ rose proving he was God with the keys of life and death and the second was Yeshua himself so here's my point you can't truly believe in Christ and dismiss the Mosaic law in light of Abraham saying if he if they don't accept Moses if they don't accept Joelle Amos Micah Obadiah the minor prophet so never accept Jesus Christ why the law the prophets it's all the schoolmaster to lead you to Christ that's the difference between the Pharisee and the publican I might interject the Pharisee was more familiar with the Word of God and the law Amba soul thus they were more accountable when the Son of Man stood de facto before them and they resisted they denied him they were much more accountable than the publican with his face down in the dirt crying saying Yahweh God have mercy upon me a sinner and so I'll be back with you this coming Saturday for an all-new lecture right here on the Euro book radio network and until then this is faster miss ER from Brooks Georgia in the covenant people's church wishing you and yours war for Christ these teachings are recorded for you live by the Euro closed radio broadcasting network and can also be found in the archives of our church's website which is covenant peoples ministries org if you have questions or comments regarding these messages please write to it at CPM post office box two five six Brooks Georgia three zero two zero five USA thanks again for joining us god bless you and keep you and be with you always another excellent broadcaster can smoke I'd like to thank the fuel men and women who actually joined today part of the reason I gave at the beginning for us not broadcasting as usual today was because of technical difficulties we've actually had nothing but technical difficulties in trying to connect because efr is upgrading their current servers to include video which in my opinion is very wise to do in light of youtube and their new censorship policies but also for some reason or another our voice meter and several other programs aren't really running right so the live stream actually is the answer to that so my friend pastor Steve on euro folk radio graciously played CI fixation which is actually a little hard core for a bar so it did play I heard it when I came back actually and everything we've covered we've pretty much done all of my notes with the exception of one parable and we're going to cover that now during the post show because this is the time to relax and actually look at this from a positive perspective a relaxed perspective and see what's being taught now this is probably one of the most important but also the most familiar parables of Christ and of course it appears only here in the Gospel according to st. Luke it's a parable of the prodigal son why is that important well actually just last night I saw an interview on television with Alice Cooper of all people and Alice Cooper was the son of a Methodist minister so he actually had a good foundation but he considers himself the prodigal son because now Alice Cooper of all people is actually going around sharing the gospel of Christ with people true story there's a video on the forum about it but if even Alice Cooper can come back into the fold that I know so many of us the white Saxons can do as such as well and by default almost every one of us need to go through a prodigal stage it's a questioning stage or a stage of rebellion this was seen in God's own family with Satan's rebellion because Satan was one of God's sons right and this was seen in Abraham's family when they sold Joseph into slavery and they had wars within themselves notice that the law of God says train a child in the right way and when they're older they won't depart from it now there's no guarantee they won't rebel and in fact the very law itself gives an escape clause because it's common sense most of them will so in so many ways we are a prodigal race we are a prodigal son okay so we're going to look at this it's found in Luke chapter fifteen but it begins in verse 11 Christ said a certain man had two sons and the younger of them said unto his father father give me the portion of goods that falls to me and he divided unto him this living polite way of saying livelihood and/or inheritance now to set the stage and to actually put this in context in almost every parable of Christ a certain man is either Yahweh God or Yahshua himself which are one in the same but notice the younger says to his father father give me the portion that falls unto me and he gave them of his inheritance now the land of Canaan was meant to be an inheritance to the Israelite men women and children it ultimately was renamed after the wanderings of 40 years into the land of Israel at every tribe well at least eleven of the twelve had a landmass allocated to them now I want you to understand this concept because for example Christ's parable of the tares and wheat he says the field is the world so also is the parable of the prodigal son much deeper than on its surface on its surface it's a great moral tale of a younger son prone to rebellion who goes out and rebels and an older son who stays behind but as we go through this remember Yahweh God is a certain man Israel or his children and Judah would being the older brother continuing on and not many days after the younger son gathered all together he took his journey into a far country and there he wasted his substance with riotous living stopping right there what did the Israelites do after all the grace that was bestowed upon them by Yahweh God after they were deliver from the land of Egypt during the exodus they went directly out deny God played the harlot with temple prostitutes and all us so this younger son are the Israelite men women and children don't believe me continue reading and when he had spent all there arose a mighty famine in that land and he began to be in what what happened after the Israelites continued to play the harlot after they were divorced by Yahweh God famine arose in the land of Egypt perhaps that's a study for another day but that's Joseph who was brought in through adoption okay the older brother in this parable would be chewed up the younger brother would be Israel now while Judah is a tribe of Israel Judah along side Benjamin is a nation in and of itself so it stayed behind what Yahweh God while Israel went well into dysphoria dispersed abroad as James said so remember that as we continue to read and he went had joined himself to a citizen of that country and he sent him into the fields to feed swine now in light of the fact of the younger brother being the Israelite race according to this parable there would have been with the exception of tax collector no lower in occupation amongst the Israelite race then beating swine but the prodigal son was doing that what do we learn in the Pauline epistles that a Sal washed will return to her wallowing and the mire and so a dog returns on job mama right so let's continue reading what happens after the younger son was sent out by a citizen of this foreign country to feed pigs and when he came to himself stopping right there notice the prodigal son was not within his right mind not himself under another influence okay take your pick the citizen of another country the exorbitant living he was going after the squandering of his father's inheritance but he wasn't in his right mind thus is the way of rebellion but when we're older we don't depart usually we come back to it I know I did I had a foundation that was self given but I also even between the ages of about 16 to 22 rebelled against God for a long time and question within myself and had to come back come back to my senses be read pilled and woken up when he came to himself he said how many hired servants of my father's have bread enough to spare and I perish with hunger I will arise and go to my father I will say unto him father I have sinned against heaven and before thee that should sound familiar because when we look today at the Pharisee and the publican from Luke chapter 18 that's the same terminology in Burbidge the sinner used have mercy on me a sinner so when the prodigal comes to his right mind does he say hey I'm gonna flip over gamble this pinning this denarii that I didn't repay my father no he says I'm gonna go throw myself on the grace of my father and hope for his blessing by admitting fuck'd admitting sin he says I have sinned against him I have sinned before thee verse 19 I am no more worthy to be called thy son make me as one of the hired servants and he rose and he came to his father now pay close attention what would you do if you were a father who had a son came to you very ungrateful in the first place and says give me my inheritance now chances are you probably think he was a self-centered and selfish bastard because you're not even dead and in the ground yet but the father being fall Grace as you know what I'll divide my inheritance notice he didn't give any to the older son but he gave a portion to the younger son and the younger son went out in rebelled but when the father saw the prodigal son returning and yet afar uh verse 20 says his father saw him and he had compassion and he ran and he fell upon his neck and he kissed him and the son said unto him father I have sinned against heaven and in your sight and I'm no more worthy to be called thy son now I'm gonna stop right there for a moment turn with me to the 51st Psalm before we conclude this actual narrative but in many ways this is what we are and this is the mindset we need to have opposite of the Pharisee when we come to our right mind our right mind dictates humility and shame shame being ashamed is a trait that only Adam can show hence to show blood in the face and it's very name why did Adam and Eve hide themselves in the cool of the day when they sinned against God in the first place if they weren't able to show shame so so I'm 51 very quickly verse 4 for I acknowledge my transgressions David writes and my sin is ever before thee against thee thee only have I sinned I've done this evil in my sight that thou mightest be justified when thou speak and clear when thou judged behold I was shapen in iniquity and in sin did my mother conceive me now these false prophet bastards are gonna come in and tell you there's no such thing as an original sin what we just covered David himself said he was conceived in original sin okay but that's not the point I want to look at the point is against thee and only thee have I sinned the prodigal son had the proper mindset he said I have sinned against heaven and in your sight and I'm no more worthy to be called your son but the father said unto his servants bring forth the best robe and put it on him and put a ring on his hand and shoes or sandals upon his feet and bring hither the fatted calf and kill it and let us eat and be merry for this my son was dead and is alive again he was lost and is found and they all began to be merry did that Christ teach that there is joy in heaven over one sinner that repents here you see the earthly manifestation of that why because the Father full of compassion who ran fell upon him and kissed his neck is Yahweh God the prodigal son are the whorish disobedient Israelites who hurt him time and time again and took the land of Canaan that inheritance that grace said was given to feel a god and squandered it got fat got complacent just like we are here in America when we're rich we have a good job and a widescreen television well suddenly we forget God don't we thus we become product so what happened so were they all happy well something to consider there is joy around the throne of heaven over one sinner that repents but not on earth and oftentimes a brother is born for adversity but a true friend loves at all times and I'm telling you from experience the men women and children that post on my forum are more my family or extended family not my intermediate family then my blood relatives my own sibling brothers ok bring hither the fatted calf kill it let us eat drink and be merry why because when his son was prodigal he was dead once again as I have taught and confirmed countless times we are dead to God in a state of sin was the prodigal ever dead yes spiritually never physically but the father says this my son was not only dead but is alive again but he's lost and it's now found now verse 25 his elder son was in the field and he came and drew nigh unto the house and he heard music and dancing notice in your King James music is all God out and has decay at the end so it's music gotta love the King's English it's a beautiful translation and he called one of the servants and he asked what this would mean and he said unto Him my brother has come and my father has killed the fatted calf because he has received him once again safe and sound and he was angry and he would not go in therefore came his father out and entreated him notice the older brother was angry did he have cause depends on your perspective when looking at the prodigal son because Judas stayed behind Judah and Benjamin and they served Yahweh God while the rest of the Israelites were dispersed into what we know is Europe today over the Caucasus Mountains Judah and Benjamin stayed behind thus the whole land became known as the land of Judah or Judea no matter how you look at it it's Judy and slang for this one tribe the oldest brother of Abraham but he wouldn't come in so the father being full of grace compassion love and mercy came out and entreats him verse 29 here in Luke chapter 15 and he answering said unto his father's lo these many years do I serve thee neither transgressed I at any time by commandment a polite way of saying the law and yet thou never gave me a kid that I might make merry with my friends but as soon as this thy son was come which is devoured by living with Whois Bell has killed him and killed for him the fatted calf now pay close attention because this sets the narrative and explains who it is Judah the apple of God's eye right but as soon as this and he the father said son thou art ever with me and all that I have it's very I mean just think about that for a moment really put it in context before we get to the final verse because this really is if you look at it and pretty much everything we've covered today you can see that in almost every parable there is overlaid the history of Israel the prodigal son is clearly the Israelites has this happened yay and they it's a parable none of it really happened it's a metaphor for the end times will it happen indeed it will when Christ returns every knee will bow every tongue will confess okay so at the end of the day who is greater it's easy for us to get angry at the grace that is given but in these parables Christ says they that cometh the third the sixth the ninth or the twelfth hour all paid indiscriminately the same why the answers given right here all that I have is thine Judah owned everything that God was given judo is responsible and still is in many ways today to handle the Oracles of God the instruments of worship and still are so the final verse for today is verse 32 the father says to judo the oldest brother and nation it was meat that we should make merry and be glad for this thy brother Israel was dead and is alive again and was lost but is now better many ways my friends the point of all of this is we are at varying stages some are fully awake or so we believe some are just now awakening to their identity through the truth of God's Word some will never awaken and as Christ would put it no awaken unto shame and everlasting contempt we look today at the parable of the Pharisee and the publican but also the rich man and Lazarus two perfect examples of Bei who are first on earth finishing last and oftentimes those who are spent upon and seen as the most lowly of souls will obtain entrance into Abraham's bosom and so be patient that's the point and if you have a literal prodigal son be like the Heavenly Father in this parable of Christ as we read it in Luke 15 I have compassion kisses net give them the finest that you're able to and don't shame him because part of life is making mistakes that's how we learn the truly wise man however like Judah or the older brother has the ability to learn from other people's mistakes and that is the analogy of the prodigal son Judah didn't have to go out and transgress God's law and Judah was able to understand that yeah the son was wasting his living and his inheritance on harlots who is drinking past living and then he comes home so don't get lifted up because you have served God's longer that is the point and like always I hope this live stream has edified you I hope there were no glitches we won't know until we actually look at this in about an hour when it renders out I do apologize for the technical difficulties that we had at the beginning but all things truly do work together for good romans chapter 8 verse 28 think about it this way not only did euro folk radio graciously replay ci fixation but they played the rare 13 minutes short that I preached in 2002 titled God blessed the seventh day so you might want to look into that my point is we got a double broadcast out today about two and a half hours of preaching I'd like to thank some of the men and women John H John and Baron Sabina Eric Holly and Eric Troy Curtis and anybody else I may have forgotten because we're not up to date yet we're about a weeks behind we'll have it all tallied up by Saturday if you haven't already please swing by covenant peoples ministry dot org sign up for an account on our forum there's great fellowship over there we have an awesome moderator who keeps pretty much everything in line and keeps everyone acting pretty good and sometimes there's heated discussions like we've seen this last week over Charlotte's bill but with good cause you know they're gonna use these things against us and at the end of the day just a loose prediction here I wouldn't be surprised if by year's end they impeached Donald Trump and every Confederate a monument is removed sounds crazy well I could be wrong I hope I am but in three months I hope I'm not replaying this clip saying I told you so because I preached on abomination of desolation in 2007 and really I don't need to preach on Charlotte ville Virginia and the events that transpired there because everything I needed to say was set over ten years ago if you go back and look at that video or listen to the sermon abomination of desolation that I preached in 2007 or six I already predicted everything we're doing now it's actually quite amazing and that's not boasting on myself that's not that I'm a great prophet the Word of God if poor tells us all things it tells you what will happen if you appoint a strange ruler and not only does it tell you you'll become the tail they'll become ahead it tells you that you'll never have your sovereignty again once you relinquish it so check it out you might be interested in it and until Saturday 12 noon right here on this very venue this is pastor mister wishing you and your entire family great studies and always remember to war for Christ and if you're able please send support until next time amen
