Above the Bible lower known comes to you under the direction of Elder Lucero Bradley Junior will and in Junior inviting you to stay tuned for another message of God's sovereign grace and the anniversary month for the Baptist Bible lower as we completed 69 years on the air and we encourage all of our mistress to make a special point to write us during this month will be glad to send you a special message on CD related to the theme of this month. Our theme is help in trouble with all who would concede that the past couple years have been full of all kinds of troubles is good to be reminded that parish help in the Lord our God. So just request the message. If you would like on CD. Our address is Baptist Bible hour box 17/37, Cincinnati, OH 45217 and will and will and will will and in will we bring you the second part of the message entitled ruling now glory to come consider the fact that the creation secondly that we grow Penn's news is that parish glory, me when you're growing, you become slothful and neglect your duties well. I'm just thinking about what, I don't. I don't care about today yet here we have an obligation slothful… Condemn throughout Scripture in the book of Proverbs that person who's in different not accepting the responsibilities is not pleasing that was part of the problem that Paul had right to those who decided because they look to the coming of Jesus Christ. They just quit their jobs and the depend on somebody else. The freedom of the Lord came back he said no matter what were not so even while you're looking like a groaning meeting your exam from day-to-day responsibility responsibility family responsibility to church Christ as you serve him in the church so hard groaning though is unique. This separates the growing of the Christian from the groaning of every other human being because we have the firstfruits of the spirit found firstfruits are a promise of a harmless, we find reference to the offering of the firstfruits in Old Testament times as they gathered in the firstfruits, they were encouraged to believe this is not on this is not a harmless, this is just the first part but the harvesters coming after while we have the firstfruits of the Spirit, the spirit of God dwelling in us to give us the assurance that we are use the spirit of God dwelling EMS to guide us in the way that we become sober because of the spirit in us because of what we've experienced through the blessing of the Holy Spirit when he sometimes given us peace in the midst of the storm when he sometimes busters with comfort when we were soldiers wrote when he sometimes is a list of the supplements THAT we have the firstfruits of the Spirit. Therefore, we eagerly await the redemption of our body will follow into the how we rejoice to consider what is to come in so as we wait.

We have the help of the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. Verse 26 likewise the Spirit also our infirmities and all of us would concede not that we are weak were firm in our sounds. We need help on a daily basis and were able to save the Lord is my helper, not fear what man might do. Not only do we have that general declaration God our father is our helper, Jesus Christ the Savior is our helper, but here he speaks of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit help with our infirmities than his ideas. For we know not what we should pray for Ashley sometimes try to pray and just elect your cunning can't get the right words together you feel that maybe your mind is not focused like the heart is not in the state for the know not what to pray for as we all look the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be this is the third groaning.

We read about in this portion of Scripture creation groans we grown in the spirit makes intercession with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will to you. Mike struggling your prayer life. Pray in the right but the spirit of God will formulate the word with groanings that cannot be hundred and it will be according to the will of God. Prayer that will be pleased to the father, one from another place. We have Jesus Christ who is our intercessor and to make intercession for us and the Holy Spirit in our hearts, making intercession for we get some emphasis upon the fact that Jesus Christ is our intercessor and we should have thought much about intercession of the Holy Spirit. He intercedes for us flavored with Blanche to have the son of God, Jesus Christ, sitting in the right hand of the father in glory. Who ever lives to make intercession for us. Later tapes not on the basis of any words in us, but on the basis of his perfect sacrifice for substitutionary death at Calvary's cross and have the Holy Spirit of God formulating our prayers and making intercession for us groanings which cannot be now the motivation well. Talk about what was groaning. We were supposed rejoice 12 Philippians chapter 4 verse four says rejoice follow landlord and again I say rejoice in first Thessalonians chapter 5 says to rejoice evermore grown and rejoice at the same time that we can rejoice even actually grown because this groaning is not a groaning of disparage one of anticipation, it's excitement.

If looking for something wonderful that is to come and we can rejoice because we have the first we have the testimony of the spirit within us confirm that we are the children of God. We can rejoice because we can claim that 28 for God is working all things together for our good. When we don't understand we can't figure it out, committed, and all his pain knowing he is in charge. We can still rejoice because our groaning is for glory. We get a little foretaste of things from the Lord for that special blessing you may have.

Sometimes at a time like that when you're reading Scripture that just was a surge of joy came up in your heart. One instance that stands out so vividly my mind when I think about that can experience. I was in Poland glowers with me over there and we were traveling around ministering to people as we had opportunity and there was a day when the car broken down couldn't go and I set out in front of that apartment.

What's little kids play.

I tried to interact with the friend… We can speak the same language make much progress, but I just sat down on the porch.

There and began to read the Scripture and I was disappointed because we were able to fill out the check day.

But if I have ever had a day of spiritual uplift in the reading of God's word was that it was just a joy that was beyond expression.

Thank God for the truth is wording to believe that the Spirit's reply to my heart so we are groaning we have seasons of spiritual uplift in his word for maybe 20. Listen to the sermon and you just felt like today, spoke to me and somebody called me this week that I just want to praise God that message I heard on the radio today was designed for me. God used it to give such comfort to my heart. Well, we grown up we grown not in despair not in anger like treatment. The grown in week grown for glory. We saved a little foretaste of hand is wonderful. I want the whole thing. I want glory. Mentors promise that the glory that is so, we see the creation groans we grown and perished.

Glory to come. We are waiting for the redemption of our body. Verse 23 says, waiting for the adoption when the redemption of our body. That's when the adoption will be complete that the body itself is again body is now week before the changes coming for Quicken chapter 15 verse 42, the apostle writes, so also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, so body for decay going downhill. I get ads in the mail and sometimes on the phone or someplace or saying you are RPL and you just be like. I don't personal. I want to get that matter, how many build take out of the vending you can still get all you gotta still grow. We still find out you get up in years. You can't do the same things you could when you run these bodies are fragile already in this position of looking toward the greater its range.

Though corruption. No current in the resurrection is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory is sown in weakness, it is raised in power sown in weakness and think about the many funerals and have preached over the years about the fact that not only comes to old people sometimes comes the young people on the most touching seems to me was on time I've been called by an undertaker who had little storefront facility in downtown Cincinnati. Should Prichard is a lady down here whose baby has died. She has no family to help. I wonder if you'd be willing to come down here and preach the funeral shortly will and I went and when I finished it I Prichard Diamandis writing in your car would you take us to the cemetery and the lady sat in the backseat and he put that little casket in her lap and it was just such a touching same to me.

There was one that had no family at hand. No one partially offer her comfort and she's holding the infant. Whether it's a baby with her one of middle-age or wonders lived out a long life. The fact is, it is sown in weakness raised in power sown a natural body to drain the spiritual life. I look forward to the mount matter how we may feel today, no matter how tiring we become. No matter how many of our facilities failed.

We are looking forward to the day that we will have a spiritual bodily harm body Ray spiritual. Philippians 3 $0.20 for our conversation is in heaven.

The points we also look for the safe for the anticipated coming. Are you excited about us coming.

We look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall change our vile body and it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, and he would St. Louis rescue us from hell. Save us from sin, but that ultimately we'll have a body fashioned like a according to the working whereby he is able to subdue all things unto himself glory to come and we wait in late in verse 24.

For we are saved by hope, but hope that is seen is not how. What a man see flat at the hoped-for, but we hope to see not, then do we with what patients with patience wait for conjectural excited thinking about it. So leave come today. What is nothing wrong with that prayer that did but still, there must be patience exercise still in the time of our groaning still in the time of our waiting in anticipation that we wait with patience.

Titus chapter 2 verse 13 says, looking for the blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ glorious appearing that you sometimes try to visualize what would it be something that was great and looked up into the sky and see Jesus Christ coming coming.

It's a glorious, glorious appearing think seeing Jesus face-to-face you read about you been singing about them even praying to what pretty much what a joy to see Ashley and then lived with him for ever and ever.

In times of suffering time.

The discouragement we remember, the best is yet to come.

So no matter how troubling the way maybe for you at the moment, no matter what darkness you may be passing through what heavy burden, especially the past is yet to come to sit back in the 19th verse where I reckon that the suffering of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Old Mike have our attention focused on that coming of Jesus Christ. Yes, we grown we grown because we are excited about what's going to happen, the glory that used to come think in vivid contrast to what we read in the book of Genesis because of sin, Adam and Eve were driven from the beautiful garden of Eden but of dark depression.

See, and all the suffering that his father because of sin, holders, glory, glory, Revelation chapter 21 verse one and I saw a new heaven and the new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away, and there was no more sea and I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven going black for that machine of contrasted between being driven out in this great city coming as a bride are doing for her husband and I heard a great voice out of heaven saying the whole the tabernacle of God is with man, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with me and be their God, and God shall wipe away all to from their company to share the journey of life. She had tears because of her own failure because of your own seen shed tears because her misunderstanding breaking up friendships and even a marriage. Tears you shed because of the loss of love there. He wipes all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor cry, neither shall there be any more pain for the former things are passed away and he that sat upon the throne said hold.

I make all things new and you send me write these words are true and faithful something about what we've seen in the specialist we say that sin brings some sin brings destruction sin ultimately brings eternal judgment unless the sin question is resolved to the redemptive work of Jesus Christ saying that Adam was driven out of Eden that paradise on this and that of consequence all creation grown, grown and even now in anticipation of what will, when there will be a new heaven and earth wearing righteousness see then that the strength of the dwelling in the new Jerusalem. We long for that loan to be with Jesus and think about debate liking hard to visualize at the moment. In this time of our groaning in this time of our weakness to think of being with him and being like him and no disruption in that fellowship far ever break even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus, in all its glory is to come is because of Christ. None of it depended on moral reform, church membership, good works, any the other things that people try to make it the basis of salvation works 34% who achieve academic interest Christ that died young, rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God on selective session for us!

Because God love his people gave her son, Jesus Christ laid down his life and children's not let them can possibly condemn those who were purchased by the age of the right hand of God were a family of to make intercession for us.

The hymn writer describe it like this when all my labor trial for over and I am safe that beautiful shoe just to be near the Duke.

Dear Lord, I door will through the ages the glory for me all the glory for me glory for me) for me. Yes there is trouble hardly sorrow, disappointment, we anticipate that great glorious day is to come. Our morning difference from just that of the world who know nothing about the fruit of the spirit about the firstfruits of the Spirit having given us – we grown and happy anticipation that there's a great day coming and I thought we thankfully for this precious hope in the midst of the struggles components of life. We went to grown looking to that day when maybe realize when the body is racist. Raise from its weakness range in glory to be conformed to the image of our Savior Jesus Christ, praying for any today do not have this precious hope of that adoption of the body that they may see their need of a Savior and rest in him about faith today. Here is for Jesus. A man all and in a and to be with us for the broadcast today and pray that this message groaning now glory to come be a blessing.
