In this share. Bradley Junior welcoming you to another broadcast of the Baptist Bible. Our I want to encourage you to write much snow that you've listed much of the call letters of the station, of which the program is come to you and if you write and request it. I'll send you the current issue of our publication. The Baptist witness has an article entitled the painful blessing of being humble, written by Isaac guess the Scriptures have a lot to say about humbling ourselves before the Lord and it's not one that maybe seems to be a pleasant subject. And yet, while it is painful sometimes to reach that point of being humbled. It is a blessing. Her dress is the Baptist Bible Auerbach 17 oh 37, Cincinnati, OH 45217 continue today with the message Christ the Victor Jesus said in Matthew chapter 10 verse 34. Think not that I'm come to send peace on earth I came not to send peace, the sword verse 36 and a man's foes shall be they of his own household painful when you find a husband or a wife or parents stand against you.

As you determine to follow Christ was so thankful that we've seen additions to our church in recent years from people who brought up under the influence of pagan religions and the living converted come to believe in Jesus Christ often presents a challenging situation when they relate that to their families by flattopped. One of the gunmen this week will soon be going back to his homeland and Isabella my case my parents are neutral. Better that than to have one in fierce opposition, but there are others where the parents do not understand and feel like that their commitment to Christianity has been a great hindrance to slowing them down of the educational process and in pursuing the goals and the careers that would be in the best interest Thinks that kind of opposition. That's extremely difficult for surrounded by people at home and in the workplace and in the educational institutions all around you is going. Opposition understand to be firm that brings us and look at the next part of the text evidencing something about the world. How did Jesus overcome it. He overcame the world in his life.

He patiently waited to minister at the appointed time when his father would have. To begin his earthly ministry he was committed to do the work of the father, but he was just 12 years old and was in the temple.

He answered many questions to the amazement of those that were the leaders and teachers. There and when Mary, Joseph, founding decision chapter 2 verse 49% of them, whisking not that I must be about my father's business. So even at 12 years of age. There was something burning in his soul.

He knew there was a work to do. He wanted to be involved in it and he was to some degree as he had that interchange in the temple, but think about from that time utility embarked on his earthly ministry at age 30.

Think about what he must've experienced how many conversations did he overhear at various times that must've caused him to cringe in his own heart to think how terrible are the conditions of this ungodly plan. How terrible is the state in this evil world.

How many times must've disturbed when he witnessed the high hypocrisy of the religious leaders of that day because after he did begin his ministry. He was constantly in confrontation. How many times that he see someone that was sick. Someone that was possessed of the devil.

One. It would've been wonderful to deliver them but he waited. He waited. Why because the father had designed for him. The work that he should do and the time at which he should embarked upon his ministry.

He weighed great lesson for us. Many times, maybe do we become enthusiastic and zealous about a particular work that we would like to be a part of and we rush into it. We don't wait as far as being properly prepared our weight for the indication of divine providence that God is in it and that he showing us the way doesn't mean that we are to begin different that we are to be slothful, but it means there is a time there is a place that the Lord has for us and we need to determine where the he waited until it was the time of the father knew after he was in the ministry and at various times. There were those who tried to take him away and he said my time is not yet gone. He wasn't going to go to the cross until the power line that was appointed to the father every detail of his life.

The time that he started in the ministry. What he did in the ministry when he said what he preached, the miracles he performed and ultimately going to the cross was all according to the plan of the father. He said I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of him that sent me, that was his design and purpose to do the will of the father and then the overcame the world in his life by resisting temptation we find in the fourth chapter the book of Matthew that he was out in the wilderness and tempted by Satan. Satan tried to get him to cast himself down from the pinnacle of the temple set out I was given the whole world of give you everything I give you what the world has to offer. Then said Jesus unto him, get the hint. Satan, for it is written notice how the Jesus confront Satan by pulling Scripture. If Jesus used Scripture to resist temptation to think of a good idea for us to follow the example so he says it is written thousand worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve the devil leave him and hold angels came and ministered in as he quoted Scripture the devil lifting and that he overcame the world by the very spirit that he displayed in the fourth chapter of the Gospel of Luke, Jesus went to the temple and read the Scripture. And as you commented on and talked about the fact that there were many widows in the days of the prophet but not only for one and she was not an Israelite, and the remaining lepers and not only claims one and it wasn't name of the Israelite. It was name of the Syrian mind. These people were incensed. They had decided we are God's people. And if God is going to do anything is going to do it for us and through us and the idea that God was doing something with these others. They rush the message of the building to get to the bow of the mountain and attempted headfirst, but he walked away from now somebody treated you like that and you had the power to retaliate.

Probably would've been inclined to do it. Jesus didn't retaliate. He didn't even speak against them. Just walked away. His spirit was always under control things languishing the lesson. We looked at on recent message where the disciples were perturbed because they've gone through Samaria and the people had rejected the message and they said all these people.

Jesus, I didn't know what spirit you are of. I didn't come here to destroy people. Again, the site old I learned the lesson Jesus overcame the world because he didn't get into it spirit in its attitude. When they came to arrest him. Peter takes out a sword cutoff near the high priest servant. They put away your sword. I haven't. When he went to the cross was us.

Father forgive them for they know not what they did. If we're being more and more conformed to the image of Jesus that will be our spirit. Luke 640 says that when the disciple is fully called, he shall be as the Masters going to be like the teacher, not just believe what the teacher called me like what kind of the spirit in any overcame the world not only in his life within his death he fulfill the work that was given them of the father.

Isaiah chapter 53 clearly indicates that before he came. It was a fact he could see of the travail of his soul. Know the suffering that he would endure, but he was satisfied.

Why, because he knew he would be a success, but disappointed not defeated successful and therefore when he came to the end of the time on the cross. He said it is finished everything the father give him to do in the he complied perfectly. He lived a perfect life and now he's dined, the substitutionary death, he overcame the world by his death because he finished the work given by the father. He redeemed sinners willing centers lost sinners were deemed participating far Galatians 313 says Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us, for it is written, cursed is everyone that hangers on the tree by nature were cursed under the constant condemnation of sale of the wrath of God. The mother suffered justly for Jesus Christ became a curse for us dying in our place. Pulling away RCN paying the price and the company paid far overcame the world. Not only did he overcome the world in his life and his death, but certainly in his resurrection. If death and swallowed them up all these claims would've come to know the death on the cross would've been meaningless, but you remember when the women went that morning to pay their respects, and the angel pointed the empty tomb. See the place where he lay. He is not here certain overcame the world, the overcame sin and Satan feeds them for his resurrection they would soon after being raised from the dead ascend back to his throne above it left to come here, he humbled himself, he took upon himself the form of a servant, he humbled himself to the death of the cross. But now he's ascending back to glory in his exalted above all and Peter therefore could boldly safe. Notice the contrast Peter one who not long before I did not is Lord now, by the anointing of the Holy Spirit who descended upon them of the day of Pentecost in accordance with the promise Jesus had made that he was going to give them the comforter, the Holy Spirit.

Now the boulders, acts 233 therefore being with the right hand of God exalted God have made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Gordon boldly you crucified him.

God had raised enough mating Lord and Christ. Philippians chapter 2 verse nine wherefore God also hath highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name in the name of Jesus.

Emily knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, and things under the earth and the phone should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, for the glory of God that when you get a little discouraged when you hear people ridicule Christianity, you hear them say unkind and disrespectful things about Jesus.

Just remember, this takes the day is coming and we need is going the bow and every tongue is going to the person hasn't bowed here and confess Jesus here that I have acknowledges over there. Even in the day of judgment.

He is the mighty conqueror that we think about the piece Jesus gives he was deeply concerned that these disciples would yet have peace. These things are spoken unto you, that in me might have its own inward pace doesn't mean that your circumstances will always be peaceful. We are told to seek peace and ensuing and is much as you you are to live peaceably with all men, but the fact is that the circumstances of life are not always going to be feasible, but it's an inward pace tribulation columns. The battles rage, but he gives a peace that passes understanding the peace he says is in him nodding your surroundings Important to have experience on a particular Davidson him and he is the same yesterday today and forever. It's in him as the branch is in the fine in that lesson he said without me ye can do nothing. You must abide in me, and abiding in him is where we find the peace it in him as a member of his body continued him as you walk by faith, trusting him relying upon humidity in him as your own way. According to love in the you shall have peace, it's a peace that comes by believing the things that he has spoken is exactly what he says in the text. These things I have spoken unto you, that you might have.

All of these comments this lengthy message it with an covering over several weeks.

All these things that Jesus said he had said that they might have things but that would have to believe it just because he spoke the words would not make the difference unless they receive them will think about what he said. He said after the 14th chapter he was going to go to prepare a place for them. That's good news.

All the sudden they were feeling like orphans that he was going away and they were left alone but he said I'm going to prepare a place for you have to believe that the Peace not only resembled way. Prepare placement to come back and had to be together, that where I am there. He maybe also and he said I'm going to give you the comforter. I'm going to give you my Holy Spirit you want to be empowered. You want to do quite a bit done thus far.

The gospel is going to be spread multitudes going to receive. So it's a matter believing that you do you sometimes fret and worry and give into your trouble, simply because you don't believe you don't believe what Jesus you don't claim his promise says, be of good cheer, similar to the words that were given to Joshua when he was to take over after Moses in the book of Joshua. He says chapter 1 have not I commanded the be strong and of good courage, be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou. What more could be said Joshua you don't have to be afraid. Why, because the Lord is good to be with you wherever you go. You're not alone do not by yourself years with you. I dare say that there's probably more than one or two people in this congregation this morning and have worried a little bit of time or two. This past week you friended about some situations you worried about some circumstances you may have even felt very much alone, your inner struggles were such that you couldn't adequately express if anybody else if you wouldn't understand.

Anyway but the fact is, he says I will never leave you nor forsake.

So if you're one of the key is you never alone.

He doesn't leave you. He sometimes hides his face to teach us a lesson but he's always there. It sometimes appears to us that this evil world is winning the battle. You see what's on the news.

If you happen to take a glance at what's on television than the one that will be a quick glance move on to something else because most of its 50 but when when you look at the trends in what's occurring in our culture you may save about victory without having Victor loosen all but the fact is though the influence of wicked men continues to increase the principles of righteousness are scarf that but the words of Jesus still standing. Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

He won the victory at the cross, he declared it when he came out of the grave and so it may be that in some of the scrimmages that we have now there are setbacks and peers. We are not making much progress, but he declares that we must believe that I have overcome the world. We encounter resistance to the gospel that you've tried to witness to someone a family member or friend somebody work with you see that there's absolutely no interest.

The heart is hard to find a set against it is only possibly she conversions in the atmosphere in which we find ourselves today. Jesus is the victor. He has the power to break hard hearts. He has the power to humble prime sinners. He has the power to transform the most wicked of soul, and he is the one whom our confidence grants know where you stand today the world conquers you blind your eyes when it influences your thinking when it takes up your time and consumes your energy is not with you the times and you get so involved in worldly interests is so dry.

I got to make a living absolutely could do that it doesn't provide for zones worsened in it for them understand but it's one thing to make a living. It's another thing to be so involved in the pursuit of success and wealth position which we can think like the world thinks. Paul tells us in Romans chapter 12 that we need to have our minds when coming back to put things in their proper order seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness says Jesus in Matthew 633 but you conquer when your eyes are on Jesus when your mind is renewed and you communing with him.

You're walking with him every day. You also overcome tomorrow not to your own strength because you're so tough because he's with you you're depending upon him, you're walking by faith your trusting him first John chapter 4 in the fourth verse says, for whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. If you want overcome the world by faith. You got to trust him. You got to believe when the going gets particularly difficult when it seems that the world had the upper hand when it seems that no one is responding to your witness and testimony. Just remember the words of Jesus. I have overcome the world. Be of good cheer, you may feel cast down and defeated at times become deeply grieved when you hear Christianity being ridiculed, but just remember the king, Jesus claims he's exalted, seated on the right hand of the Majesty on high where Emma lives to make intercession for us. You maybe struggling with personal problems things it seemed ready to swallow you up. Let's think about those words in the eighth chapter of the book of Romans. Question is asked verse 35 who shall separate us from the love of Christ shall tribulation all the stress of persecution or famine or nakedness, or peril, or sword, as it is written, for my sake we are killed all the day long workout of the sheep for the slaughter. Look at the answer in all these things we are what more than conquerors them that love feel much like a copper what you're not.

But as you walk with Jesus you conquer through human bike is power by his grace we are more than conquerors through you that loved us.

Think of it someday.

The last battle within you fault your latest on and you will be in the presence of Jesus Christ, seeing him face to face to hear the angelic chorus praising the multitudes redeemed at an elevation of the heaven triumphant song slave and has redeemed us to all the time.

Surely in the lease and the matinee present Revelation chapter 12 it said that they overcame by the blood of the Lamb. They overcome her Jesus Christ the King of all will be Dave object of the praise and affection of all of those work is being saved by grace, redeemed by his blood, replace glorified bodies to sing his trial for ever seeing no more trouble, not authority, but the bask in the sunlight of his love for ever and ever. Jesus Christ is the therefore is that these things I've spoken to you, that in me you might have peace in the world ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer of overcome the world.

Glad that you could be with us for the program today who could be listening.
