And in Zion, and additional sure Bradley Junior welcoming you to another broadcast of the Baptist Bible.

Our G will and will and will and will and will and will and will will will and we continue today with the message the rejected stone exalted. There were multitudes when Jesus was here on earth that rejected his message rejected church claims and shirking car multitudes that reject them today. Yet Jesus Christ is exalted, given the name above every name ultimately at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess all written for chapter. Jesus went back to his hometown. They anticipated that he would perform some spectacular miracle there said I know what you're thinking.

I didn't speak to him since he wasn't God in the place he knew what they were thinking. It is not know what you want you want something to occur here in which you can boast in glory as though the miracle. This place exceeded those in other places. What Jesus did. Jesus chose to speak on the soft subject of sovereignty. He talked about the fact that there were many widows in the days of the prophet and God will lift the one and she was not part number one of the sermon didn't go over very well. Point number two was just like there were many, but only plans on and he was not name like he was Naaman the Syrian. He was an enemy he had carried some of the people thought was special to God's instrument claims, one among us. Jesus said plans. One of those among us. The point was God being sovereign has the absolute right to the stole his blessings to feed the hungry and cleanse those that are disease, according to his own place or not obligated, not what somebody deserves its own reward given its Bockius sovereign blessing that those things are and in like manner. Salvation is bestowed. According to his sovereign grace.

Remember, these were people who were in the synagogue on the Sabbath day for the purpose of worshiping God's son was the biggest thing Esther workflow anger inside the temple. What is mounted and came over him first. Why, because what he preached because he preached the truth of sovereignty. In John chapter 5, verse 42, he says this, but I know you that ye have not the love of God in you.

I am come in my father's name, and you receive may not. If another shall come in his own name, him, he will receive Jesus that I cut my father's name and therefore do not receive me. That was just more than I can handle my recognizing him as a great teacher saying OKC spoke with authority. He was he was unusual. He was unique. They never heard another man speak like he spoke, my father's name was. He sent him that was too much I can take that chapter 6 John chapter 6 verse 35 and Jesus said of them. I am the bread of life he that cometh to me shall never hunger, and he that believe a on me shall never thirst on the bread of life makes whatever hunger he that believe upon me shall never thirst.

Verse 41 the Jews then murmured at him because he said I am the bread which came down from heaven.

Jews murmured six.

One thing to go out to this rabbi speak. One thing to hear him talk about Old Testament Scriptures and give his view, but when he says I am the bread come down from heaven to much can they said is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know how is it then that he saith hiking down from the widow's mother and father, we can endorse this weekend except this concept and then in the 61st verse of the same chapter.

When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it you said under them.this offend you what and if he shall see the Son of Man us send up where he was before I see you couldn't misunderstand that is what I've said about being a fan shoot what about this when you shall see the Son of Man us send up where it was before. That's a declaration that he is going back to heaven and was known back then at least you came from there. So if you see this is it is the spirit that Quicken at the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.

Verse 66 from that time many of his disciples went back and walked though more with you. That's a hard saying we can handle this. They rejected his message. They rejected him.

Chapter 8 John chapter 8 verse 12 then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world that follow with me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. Now notice the response look with the Pharisees and the seas therefore said to him about Barrett's record of myself by record is not true and you might know the Scripture says that they are really known who it was they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Can you imagine here is a religious leader. Here are Pharisees moral man well respected man learned man in their standing in the face of Jesus Christ who is the God man, the one by whom God created heaven and earth holds all things in his hand. The only reason those Pharisees could stand there alive was through God's great mercy and graciousness and they are going to stand in the face of Jesus Christ and say by record is not true. They rejected the stone verse 37, same chapter, I know that you are Abraham's seed, but she seek to kill me because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my father and you do that which you have seen with your father for an answer to send to him. Abraham is our father. Jesus saith one of them.

If you are Abraham's children. He would do the works of Abraham.

But now you seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth about Jesus says I am the man that is told you the truth already said by record is not what you say what you preach what you teach is not so Jesus says if you were truly the seed of Abraham.

Yes, they were Abraham's nexus even fewer of the spiritual seed, you would be like Abraham and by faith embrace what I'm telling you, but you seek to kill me manage the phone to the truth, which I have heard of God. This did not Abraham, you do the deeds of your father then said they do him with me not born of fornication.

We have one father, even God. Jesus said to them, if God were your father, he would love me language the plane is a says if God were your father if you see the if you are a Israelite pen you would love me stand there in the face of the Messiah, the God man, Jesus Christ the Savior of sinners and say what you declaring is not so.

For I proceeded forth and came from God neither came I of myself, but he sent me but you not understand my speech even because he cannot hear my word here of your father the devil, I don't have the insight, the right or authority to look at anybody and say you are very father seen a few people in time that I felt like I can say you're right right at this exact moment that that's about all that's apparent is a little devilish spirit, but I don't have the authority to say that the school because he obviously knew those that were his. You know the names of his sheep. The members of his flock that was given him of the covenant before the foundation of the world.

It could have been when you would look at given individual doors to look at somebody today and I concluded this person shows no evidence of grace.

I see no further than them at all. They may be one of God's elect, but they've not yet been regenerated at a later time. There may be a great transformation. There may be a tremendous change. It might not come to the very last moment of life. The thief on the cross had no time for Reformation. There was no time to live out a good life but Jesus said this day, shall not be with me in paradise so that transformation to come to the very but Jesus, knowing who is people are could say you are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him.

When he speaketh a lie piece because of his own party is a liar and the father of it, and because I tell you the truth.

He believed me not Jesus Christ is despised today when his claims are really press a lot of people who are willing to say lightly. Jesus was a good man. I think he was a great teacher.

I think Christianity is one of the great religions of the world you will hear about efforts to get everybody together in unity all come together with common interests, goals, and all believe in the one God wanted to such an assembly is that is simply impossible. If the claims of Jesus Christ are pressed that willing to say yes have a lot of things in common. Yes, let's all come together. But when you declare what Jesus did. He's the bread come down from heaven he came down from the father is going back please the light.

He's the truth. John chapter 14 verse six Jesus saith to him. I am the way the truth and the life no man cometh under the father but by me. When what you people are narrowminded that we can tolerate that we wait. We want you to lay that down nights all right if you believe in Jesus as a great teacher, leaving Jesus as a great example believe in Jesus as a great philosopher, but when you say he is the way there's a lot of lakes went well.

Just choose what's more comfortable for us.

Jesus said I am the way, I am the truth as well go from all religions just like to look for truth, where I can find a course in this day and time. That attitude is well know this is truth for me. It may not be for you. Avoid all concept of something be an absolute well this works for me, so it must be all right my friends. Jesus Christ is the truth and what he taught is the truth.

It's an absolute not open for negotiation not open for compromise is the way that when you take that stand, you begin to find out what rejection is just as Jesus Christ himself was rejected. You take that stand and you will be rejected by some people find people will not tolerate that will tell you your narrowminded, your prejudice, your bigoted and it's Pakistan that brought about the persecution of the early church and has brought about persecution through the years and will may yet bring but yet bring persecution upon us in this land. There are Christians being persecuted around the world today there are people dying for the testimony of Christ, the willingness to compromise might prevent there willing to take a stand to say Jesus Christ is who he said he wants.

He's everything that he claimed to be.

Now having seen that the stone was rejected and something about the rejected stone.

We see the promise or declaration that Christ made concerning the fact that the stone would ultimately be exalted.

That is, he would be resurrected. Jesus clearly taught that the soul in the parable.

What happened the servants came some of them are making some of them were killed. Finally, the sun came the sun for killing where the killing that took him outside the vineyard where was Jesus crucified outside the city. This was all prophesied this was all seen in advance. Now Jesus spoke to the fact that though he will die.

So he came to save his people, but we would lay down his life in the cross, he will come out of the great. Sometimes he spoke to him what might be considered legal terms, not direct, not explicit, but it's clear enough for us now with the whole scope of things in the completed canon of Scripture to understand what he is talking about John chapter 2 verse 19 Jesus answered and said to them, destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.

Of course, many of them thought he was talking about the temple where they worshiped and that was one of the things that offended them hot.

How can this be what is meant talking about that brought this up on numerous occasions, then said the Jews 40 and six years was the temple in building and will file reared up in three days, but he spake of the temple of his body, when therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had sent them and they believe the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said after his resurrection they remember these words and others so that he was talking about, not the temple as a tangible building a place where they went for worship, but he thought about the temple of his body. He says you destroyed a reason to in three days.

Indeed he did. He did will will will will be in you will I encourage you to write so that you listen to the broadcast today mention the colors of the station which the program comes to you.
