Pastor, author and Bible teacher Alan Wright. Jesus was the true son of Abraham. He was the true Israel, and we have been graph into this family of God and all of the promises of God are to us. Yes and amen in Christ, Alan Wright, welcome to another message of good news will help you see your life in a whole new light excited for you to hear the teaching today.

Contact us at pastoralan.org that's pastor out in.org or call 877-544-4860 that's 877-544-4860. More on this later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is Alan Wright there something inside of God.

It responds therefore to the cry of his people, but there's something else for God hears. We are told point blank in Psalm 34 but many many other places throughout the Old Testament were given similar Scriptures when the righteous cry out for help. The Lord hears and delivers them out of all of their troubles and this is particularly good news for all who are in Jesus Christ. Because what this means is that all who are in Christ have been reckoned as righteous and are closed with the righteousness of Christ. So when you pray in the name of Jesus. You are praying in the name of the righteous one and you are praying as one who has been put into right standing with God. He is moved with compassion for those that are in need and he is moved by the righteous, and we have been declared righteous in Jesus name, and therefore God is moved by your cry. He heard the second verb is a self-care say that will exact care is care care to remember. Another hugely important Hebrew word, and again it's not like okay got it forgotten that he had a covenant with Abraham know he knows all things. He's omniscient he doesn't forget something. So what is it means that he remembered it did maybe jog his memory. It it means really in Hebrew to remember that we can understand this means to have in your thoughts. It is like it can be used today to think of meditation even so, when Exodus 20 begins the 10 Commandments at the beginning it says remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy is not so much a guy was given a command because he is afraid the people would forget that there such a thing as a Sabbath I would ever forget that there was such a thing as a Sabbath, but was an remember the Sabbath day. We sang is to keep this in the form for most part of your thinking. If you say to someone if they bring you a gift. I've been on a trip they bring your gift and then you say thank you for remembering me you don't mean that if you hadn't brought me this gift that you had forgotten that I existed my wife's love languages, gifts, and I just this is my wife. She she loves to give her love languages how she shows love. She gets to use it. So if if were on a trip somewhere and ends and were shopping.

These two things almost always go hand in hand.

Somewhere there shopping on the trip and she's walk around the store and she says I look at this.

You gotta see that this 90% of the time.

95% of time what she's saying is come look at this when so-and-so love this. I think I get this for such and such we wouldn't so-and-so like this is it. Why, what is it her birthday know what is it. Is it well I guess I just think about you and other what was she doing she is remembering a friend she's remembering a family member. She's remembering somebody is going to express through through gift giving gift giving is not my love language and see this for the problem side point for marriages is one person leveling, which is others that she assumes you show love by giving guess I don't I don't and so have to work more at this and I'm got a long way still to go after 30 years.

This may for example we prepare stockings for each other on on Christmas Eve and I will give a Christmas day we open the stocking treasure the stocking. I open up the she's prepare for me is full of little precious things that she has accumulated all throughout the year off from all over the place and the stocking she opens for me. There have been times where it's been from Walgreens after the third Christmas Eve service and it is not my wife, his or her love language is gift to hears what her first question is when she opens up something from you all I love is where did you get this is not saying that because she care so much about the brand awareness of it but it was she's asking if she has a braided you get this because she wants to know that I was somewhere you know doing something traveling to something, but I was thinking of her and so Walgreens does not bless her to see if I wanted trip. I am thinking of her armor, I am remembering. I don't remember with gifts and so all this is to say when when you say you remember somebody it doesn't mean that you forgot that they were on planet Earth, and then suddenly remembered that they existed, it means that you have them in your meditation of your heart. So the Texan says God remember wasn't that he forgot but this is what occupies the heart of God. Oh, do not do not miss this is one is beautiful thing you could ever see about who God is, he remembered what his covenant with Abraham and Isaac, and Jacob. What God remember this is this is this for Jesus is ever come. This is before this is our God what he remembered when they cried for help was not the sin of Adam and Eve, he didn't say, and he remembered the sin of the world and why he sent the flood. It is that he remembered the people that created the Tower of Babel is a he remembered Abraham and Sarah, and how they become inpatient brought in Hagar and produced Ishmael.

It doesn't even say, and he remembered how many good things Abraham had done. Says he remembered his covenant with Abraham and the covenant with Abraham was especially powerful because this was a unilateral agreement. This was a covenant wherein God called this random man out of the of the call B's and told him to bless you and make your name great and you're going to be a father of a nation and people who come against you. I would be against them, and he didn't ask anything of Abraham except to believe him. And when Abraham believed in the Bible says it was credited to Abraham as righteousness. What did God remember in the midst of the people crying out to him he remembered his promises to Abraham that were for the generations to generations was a covenant with Abraham that was passed on to Isaac and Jacob was a covenant then it was still alive through Joseph, who had gone to Egypt and his family later moved to Goshen and the people of God that had swelled to such great numbers in their slavery. These were the people of whom God spoke up when he promised Abraham that he would be a father and Abraham's logon, but these people are alive and what does God remember he remembers his own word. God will not let his word fall to the ground. Empty no return to him void. God is moved by the compassion of his heart for the people, but even more so God is by the word that he's established for all eternity and the blessings that he promised Abraham would come to pass.

No matter what he was not going to allow his covenant to fall apart because he spoken it is a covenant of God, and he remembers this is what is important to him, and it trumps whether you been good or bad.

He remembered the man who had been declared righteous because he believed the covenant when you bring your request to God you come in a superior covenant a new covenant that was made and kept in the person of Christ Jesus, who was the righteous one that's Alan Wright will have more teaching moment.

We are happy to send this to you as I banks from Alan Wright Ministries, seven 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website Pastor out and got work in today's teaching now continues once again is God had said to the sun if you will baby even in the death come across than all of my covenant blessings will be poured out upon you and all who are in you and other words, Jesus was the true son of Abraham. He was the true Israelite and we have been grafted into this family of God and all of the promises of God are to us. Yes and amen in Christ, we are blessed with every spiritual blessing because God is a God who remember CISC what I'm saying when you bring your prayer to God he doesn't remember all your sin. He remembers the righteousness of Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for you. God heard shall not God remembered soft care and God saw run off. It can mean to regard to perceived the field to understand, to learn or enjoy, but rock is the word for cc in Hebrew is also the word for provide the most important place that this word is designated as provide is in Genesis chapter 22 and the incredible story when God asked the unthinkable of Abraham for him to go and offer his son, his only son, whom he loves Isaac and put them upon the altar as a burnt offering and Abraham takes Isaac and they take wouldn't take fire and Isaac says to his father. He says I see the wood. I see the altar see the fire said. But where is the Lamb and in Genesis 22 verse eight Abraham said God will provide for himself the Lamb and the word for provide is this where draw literally says God will see for himself a lamb, you could look at it this way God will see to it.

In other words, in Hebrew, the idea is that if you could see ahead about something. If you could see something that you can provide for it and God. In this sense is in our future.

So God provided a ram in the thicket that was sacrificed instead of Isaac in the same way that God always followed Jesus who would be the sacrifice for his people. The one true sacrifice for all time. He had already provided Jesus.

Even though Jesus wouldn't come and go millennium and 1/2 later he'd already provided any gods in your future because God is not limited by time guys outside of time using your past is in your present he's in your future. If using your future here. I knows what you need in the moment that you will need it and he's there, get ready. He's getting ready. He's already making is there in your tomorrow when you get ready for your tomorrow he's getting ready. It is like parents who are expecting their first born child and what are they doing their prepare in a nursery. We need to crib the baby is going to need some diapers for babies going to get what we need to we need ghetto changing station where where we believe that we need take with fixing up things what one of the parents when you could say in a sense they are providing pros for five video to see they are seeing beforehand what the child would no way be able to see the child not even born yet. Having seen the world yet and yet the parents who know so much more I can see so much further down the road are in the child's future preparing for the child before the child ever arrives.

If we, as earthly parents out of the love of our hearts sinful.

Though we may be can provide for our children because we can see further than they can see how much more so when you're a God who sees all things. Who is not limited by time can go into your future and provide for you what it is that you need in your tomorrow. And God saw it just takes on the beautiful about this and God saw all the people of Israel says literally. He saw the son of Israel pieces all when they cried. He heard their cry. He remembered his covenant and what did he see he saw people that he called unto himself and the people he saw were not a bunch of slaves who are under bondage in Egypt. What he saw were a people that were his own people, a holy nation, a royal priesthood me tell you what God saw when Israel cried out in their bondage.

God saw you he saw me sitting here today. He saw us surrounded by this word. He knew that he was going to have himself a people that he saw to it and then this last beautiful verb is God new and is no object for it just says no… Not for formed you in the womb I got dad you I knew you.

You know when I sit down when I rise up Psalm 139. You know the word for you – it is is a very intimate word. It's the word that is used to describe the marriage union of Adam and Eve. Adam yet that easy knew Eve.

It is a word that again is not in any way. Of course, implying that there was something outside of God's knowledge base.

You can't speak of of an omniscient being having something he doesn't know about.

So when he says God knew it is referencing the nuance of this word that has to do with intimate sharing and this means shared experience was yet to have means that you have experienced what someone else has experienced in the award-winning film Goodwill hunting which is about a math genius named will who is a janitor at MIT and has huge anger issues in his life that have resulted have come from mainly from the abuse she experienced from his foster father that would beat him mercilessly and the interactions between him and his counselor Sean played by Robin Williams or are incredibly poignant and in a climactic scene will is meeting with the counselor. The counselor is looking at the folder that has pictures of wills bruised body is a boy when he was beaten by his foster father and will says to the counselor if you have any experience with that and Shawn, the counselor says after 20 years of counseling have seen some pretty bad stuff and will send no have you had any experience with Said you mean personally. Robin Williams character counselor said it actually I have so my father was a mean drunk and when you get drunk you come home and you have to wail at somebody so I would provoke him, so he hit me rather than my mother or my little brother.

Moments later will falls into the counselor's arms and weeps for the first time in his healing begins because it's one thing for somebody to know is another for somebody to know experientially because God himself could go into the future and God himself is not limited by time and God himself would see to it that there was a lamb. God already knew what it was like in Jesus Christ to be oppressed, to be tormented to be beaten along for liberation, Cognos.

He knows what it's like when you're in the good times he knows what it's like for you when you're in the hard times in the next chapter next week coming weeks were real see a burning bush and a deliverer. Moses is going to call and soon the people are going to be free but that passageway to the promised land, began when they cried out to God and found out that God is the one who hears who remembers his covenant who sees his people and really knows the gospel and God knew flexing your life grayscale vision for signing rights, free grace and encouragement for every blessing. It's free. Just a click away and got away feel like something is holding you back if you can important see what could change everything. Is there someone you referencing stock to help them out what's missing blessing.

Allen a five minute period of my life right feel like even my prayers to Almighty God, are not getting past the ceiling. What truth of Scripture cannot hold on to what promise from his word can be gleaned from this is amazing that the people of God were just crying out in their pain and their slavery under the heavy hand of oppression that were just given these these four verbs this so strong of what what is God doing when you're crying out to him and this is what you can count guys hearing you guys remembering his covenant promises in Christ God, seeing he seeing ahead of time seeing what you need and God knows. He knows what you're going through. He knows what you need and you can be assured is right there with you heard remembered Saul, he knew and he does the same for you. Allen as we continue in this series on Moses's knowing that God knew knowing that he came to us and he was fully God and fully man and was someone we could both relate to, but at the same time. Respect is the authority of the world what you take away such a such a beautiful verse that at the heart of it is gotten new. God hears God remembers and God knows God sees this word for know is the word of of intimacy.

A word of closeness is word identification and is a powerful image to think of the people in their slavery that are calling out to God and God hears God remembers God knows is so urging to us no matter what we're going through.
