Will fly, mission sure made me Junior welcoming you to one of the broadcast of the Baptist Bible and in an E and will and in and will will and he and and he will and and and and he and will send you our the Baptist with articles in it that I believe will be a blessing to you just request that when you write us at Baptist Bible. Our box 17/37, Cincinnati, OH 45217 day we continue with the message the rejected stone exalt Matthew Matthew chapter 12 verse 39% under them and evil and first generation sink after a sign, and there shall no sign be given it a sign of the prophet Jonas for as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly social the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of your things. We learn from this. Some of the great scholars who their place in life is to try to Scripture to find fault with it will say that this was not an actual account. It was just as apparently it was just a lesson safely. What Jesus said, you know that absolutely cannot be. He says that just like Jonah was in the whale's belly for three days and three nights.

So the part of the earth men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation and shall condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of the whole writer. Jonas is here. Jesus Christ himself is here.

But he says just like Jonah was there literally whale that you think that it's difficult for the God who created the world to make a simple man inside the cabin for three days, something that was the small stuff compared to what God already writes for us as to how that could occur but not in God preserved his servant even when he was in a state of disobedience and rebellion took care of the fish and then the fish. Interesting how God's promise control the whole fish because the same God directed the fish to be there at the appropriate time was right there is a little and maybe you resisted that concept but if you spend a few bales in the whale's belly. You may come out shot in the same Lord of the storm and bring it out of the way sometimes stubborn and hardhearted centers make will own plans to do things on my timetable.

I want to do things my way, the Lord will get you in shape you understand you desperately needing Jonah thought he was down for the County set yet once more. When I looked toward the hotel need to pray to God and hear me here to locate here, where all brought him out of his deep distress to dryland. This actually happened when Jesus says that just like that happen.

So the Son of Man is going to be in the heart there for three days and three nights that sometimes when he talked about this.

It was very direct, very plain couldn't possibly misunderstand it. Mark chapter 8 verse 31 and he began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected of the elders and of the chief priests and scribes can be killed and after three days rise again thinking about misunderstand that began to teach them the Son of Man talk about himself, Jesus Christ the Savior, the Messiah want to suffer many things you want to be rejected of the elders of the chief priests and scribes will be killed that three days is going to rise again. Chapter 9 verse 31 for he taught his disciples and set on November Son of Man is delivered into the hands of man, and they shall kill him.

After that, he is healed he shall rise again the third day, but they understood not back saying and were afraid to ask. Very clear to but somehow they didn't quite get the point that they were free to bring it look dumb and after he's killed.

He's going to be raised up Mark chapter 10 verse 34 and they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him on the third day he shall rise again. Chapter 14 verse 27 Jesus saith unto them, all ye shall be offended because of me this night, for it is written, I will smite the shepherd and the sheep shall be scattered, but after that I am reason I will go before you into Galilee, I see Jesus is already made it clear that he speaks the truth. This is an essential point when you hear people say all I believe that Jesus Christ was a good man. I believe he was a great teacher.

I think he was a marvelous example, but I just can't believe he was God in the flesh I just cannot believe in his resurrection.

You see, there is a terrible contradiction in what they're saying. If everything Jesus taught about cooling laws was not so if he has the all city to stand there in the presence of the people and the religious leaders that the brand came down on my father are one. That is, I have come down.

I want to go back to say they going to kill me, but I will come out of the grave. After three days and three nights. If that wasn't true. Jesus Christ was the worst imposter. The world has ever known him about his father and he was been woefully deceived. There's absolutely no reason for us to be here in this assembly. Today we are of all men most miserable in the dark confused without hope. But the fact is we with all of our heart that Jesus Christ was exactly who he said he lost he came at the appointed time for the father to do the work. He was not sunny was not in the place. He was the second person of the triune Godhead and we rejoice to know that his claims are true to say this is something that separates us from all others talk about. Let's all get together with you, but you have to Jesus Christ not acknowledging him as God is not acknowledging him as King of kings and Lord of lords.

The only hope for fallen ruling center felt no way just to understand what Jesus Christ said about himself. In Philippians chapter 2 verse eight Philippians chapter 2, says, and being found in fashion as a man, he thought of himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also has highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name, the name of Jesus every knee should bow things in heaven and things that are fun things on the earth and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of the glory of God the father you tells them unless where I stand. Jesus Christ is been exalted been given a name above every name you need about confessing Jos like it didn't take that as extra big bear, what Christianity is all about Jesus Christ is not just another teacher not just a great leader not just an example. He is he is the son of God, the Savior of sinners, God in the flesh on the whole there is none other kids all in. So he had clearly declared that he would rise from the dead, perfectly clear, really. Some of the references were somewhat vital, but some of the work were very direct to the point I am going to come out great.

Well, within come to the fact of his resurrection. The stall, which was rejected of me has been exalted has been made, the head of the caller, he humbled himself to the calls. The father's given him a name which is above every name, that every knee will bow and confess that he is Jesus Christ Lord of all, John chapter 20 the first day of the week, Mary Mike Helene early when it was yet dark under the sepulcher and see if the stone taken away from the sepulcher is one of his ardent followers deeply grieved.

Jesus has been crucified. He suffered such anguish is physical suffering was beyond description. More than anything else.

He was made sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. And when sin was put on the perfect spotless Lamb of God, that suffering was beyond anything that you and I can comprehend.

It was only perfect man that ever lived. He was a loving man, gracious man. A kind man is a man that lifted up fallen healed the sick, raise the dead, spoke words of forgiveness to the rejects of society close he came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. But they by wicked hands crucified.

She seen his body taken down late in the tomb the first day of the week. She's going out there to pay her respects. Remember now the Jews have been afraid that his followers would steal his body so they have sealed the tune and they have put a soldier there to guard here comes this woman breathing, but when she gets near it, yet dark, but she sees the stone skull. Then she runneth and comes to Simon Peter and the other disciples, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, they have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher and we know not where they have laid the disciples had a source of suspicion and use with the pre-existing ways. Body clean their perplexities bodies gone cannot even think of in terms right now resurrection to somewhere else. Not only the spoon theory, but the idea that they stole his body just absurd that is required for the disciples when Jesus, Peter did not want all of them for soaking and fire you think this much or scared out of their minds. Afraid they're going to be next to crucifixion to come up there and confront a soldier who's guarding the to remove the stone later persecuted for preaching the resurrection of Jesus Christ to stand up there bold and brave and courageous, something the reality is, Jesus Christ did what he said it was a deliberate die, but he literally arose the next essential difference between Christianity and every other religion of the world is the empty tone said he is not here he is risen he is risen to tune then you go to the fourth chapter the book of acts, verse seven session when they had set them in the midst they passed by power or by what name have you done this to talk about the healing of the lame man at the gate of the temple. They want to know about what power did you do this, then Peter with the Holy Ghost set in the lamp the rulers of the people and elders of Israel. If we this day be examined of the good deed done the man about what means he is made whole know you all and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ, of whom ye crucified for the Holy Ghost said that like the rest of my money but thought on some occasions and I just fall apart at the next time you think here and say that you have crucified to say no. Antagonize the people that may here and what else does he say whom God raised from the dead you thinking there would've said that part of stealing the body of Jesus and because P is for all of the Holy Ghost when somebody is full of the Holy Ghost, they can have a boldness so that they're not afraid of a roaring lion. Now this is not brash this not talk to somebody off in your own depravity. This is talking about all boldness that given the power of the indwelling Spirit of God, even body does this man stand here before you hold you want to know how this man was healed. It was my Jesus Christ, you crucified but God raised him from the dead right and connect with our text. This is the stone which was set at naught of you builders just as Jesus taught the parable, the builders rejected the stone as the snow was called builders, which is become the head of the caller was rejected, crucified Lord, neither is there salvation in any other park. There is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be say oh what a powerful testimony that testimony could not of been given other than to know the reality of the risen Savior. Oh how beautiful to see that this woman who was the rejected stone is now the hidden corner. What is Jesus to you today to see a stumbling stone.

Some stone, some stumbled on the stone fall and then he spoke of those upon whom the stone will finally fall and they will be ground to dust. What does Jesus mean to you is he precious is his name sweet to your ears. Can you say with the hymn writer, how sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer's ear Jesus's sorrows.

He gives his wounds and drives away his fear is your Lord said this stone would be for the rise and fall of many. Are you rising or falling. Where are you today you believe in this wonderful Savior may have been a time that you despised that you had no part of the gospel you turned your own way but today your eyes and open your ears up into your heart is been touched in Jesus is everything to you we been to confession before man and will will you will you will will will will join us to know that in spite of the fact Jesus Christ will drink menu multitudes today. He is one whose name is exalted above every other night and that's the name of Jesus every knee will confess to the glory of God.
