The Woburn fighting Studios in Memphis Tennessee. Byron Tyler here with Carrie Vaughn, the CEO of Glover fighting. You know among many things we can learn is to fish. Recently I read fishing may seem complicated the first time anglers but that doesn't have to be the case with just a bit of gear a fishing license of the information in this guide, you will be able to get on the water and try your hand and catching some fish by this weekend.

You know, but is cool is that is there are some things that no pastor or Bible teacher can teach you. They can only be taught by the Holy Spirit. I believe that you know Adrian Rogers said sin will take you farther than you want to go make you stay longer than you want to stay and make you pay more than you want to pay and that's a catchy phrase. There's a lot of truth in that is the conception of sin, and I think the Holy Spirit is the only one that can convict in the only one that can save in so we are being led by the Spirit. At the same time were being taught by the Spirit's regulation.

Rogers said one time, a courtroom may convict you of crimes. Conscience will convict you of wrongdoing, but only the Holy Spirit of God will truly convict you of sin, and you know I'm so thankful that God has given us the Holy Spirit for that very thing so we can know that we have sinned against God, a man spiritual mentor mine because it a check in the spirit God gives you a check in the spirit right to say what hold up. Not there. Not now. Don't do that and that is that is walking in the spirit that is living out the spirit filled life.

When the Holy Spirit begins to convict when the Holy Spirit begins to prompt when the Holy Spirit begins to speak their minds begin a major Rogers. He said I can teach truth, but only the word of God can impart truth you know a man in and one my favorite verses and God made him who knew no sin to become sin for us that through him we might become the righteousness of God. That is the Holy Spirit Way when the Holy Spirit meets the holy word.

Things begin to happen. They begin to happen will is the program of lobar finding goes out were hearing from our listeners from all over the world.

We have this listener on Facebook who says uplifting brilliant teachings of God's word, plain and simple teachings God inspired. In truth, I believe that you believe that yes right and so if he is a God of truth and he is he cannot inspire untruth and Billy Graham said it this way of seeing God work. Too many ways in too many situations for the word of God not to be true then we pride ourselves here. Love were finding saying a profound truth. Simply stated, that is the essence of the ministry.

Also, we will remind our lobar finding listeners that our online store is just a click away until and right now were excited to talk about a new book Discover Jesus by Adrian Rogers. Please take advantage of the book. It's all about a relationship is not is not a ritual it's not religion, it will show you what you know how to grow and how to show your new faith in Jesus Christ and so you gotta love this book.

Also many other all at your fingertips. Also, our annual Ministry report is online absolutely a great report you want to read up on that and get a great summary of what God is doing to the ministry lobar finding they can maybe help fuel your prayers for the ministry to I think so and I think if you would go to the website. There's a prayer wall there that you can do two things you can pray for other people which we need to pause every day and do that.

By the way, and then you can also post a prayer request and so take advantage of the new dashboard of It's a wonderful site, and God is using it mildly well for three things that you cannot learn in school. Here's Adrian Rogers and I want you to take God's word today and turn placed in John chapter 16 I want to talk to you about the convicting convincing power of the Holy Spirit type of the message. Three things that you cannot learn in school. I look in John chapter 16 in verse seven Jesus says nevertheless I tell you the truth is that it is expedient for you that I go away for five go not away, the comfort tour will not come to you, but if I depart, I will send him under you. Now the comfort towards the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit, the divine Paraclete. Jesus said I am going to heaven but I will send the Holy Spirit to take my place. Now notice in verse eight, and when he is, that is the Holy Spirit when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin and of righteousness and judgment.

Now the word reprove actually means convict arc inventors. He will convict, he will convince the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. Those are three things you never learn in school. The truth concerning Sam that concerning righteousness and the truth concerning judgment you say well I understand sin, righteousness, and judgment may be a new intellectual but until the Holy Spirit of God teaches you these things, you will never know unless think of them one at a time. Three things that you will never learn in school.

First of all deals with the conception of San Juan is sin look in verse nine, Jesus said the Holy Spirit is come to convince men of sin not watch it because they believe not on me now. The Bible teaches that a human being is a natural born sinner. The Bible says in Ephesians chapter 2 in verse three that he is by nature a child of right now the Holy Spirit of God has to remove a certain kind of ignorance and we think that men are wicked and sinful because of what they do. We think a man is a sinner because he lives because he steals because he commits adultery because he killed is not a sinner because he does these things he does these things because he is a seven man is not a liar because he tells lies, he tells lies because he is alive.

A man is not a thief because he steals he steals because he is a thief. These things Jesus said, out of the heart is a man is a sinner because of what is and then because of what he is.

He does what he meant to say well I take umbrage at the fact that you say that I'm a sinner by nature all right and let's talk about what you do. Romans chapter 3 verse 10 as it is written, there is non-righteous, no not one. I want to say in your heart. Not even me, agree with God.

There is none righteous, no not want.

Romans 323 for all of sin and come short of the glory of God that your nature is the poison well your sins that you do the poison bitter water that comes out of that. Well yes I will. I don't kill and I don't steal what about your thought life. Jesus said, lust is adultery. Jesus said hate is murder a man is a sinner because of what he is. He is by nature a child around a man is a center because of what he does and he does what he does because he is one year. But what does our text say what is the Bible say that the Holy Spirit has come convict Minna look again if you will, and see what the Bible says in verse nine he is calm, the convict Minna sin beat clause they believe not on me. Now that's the part most of us can understand thus far, but when we get to this part. Then we see that the Holy Spirit of God convicts a man of sin not only because of what he is, not only because of what he is non-but the Bible convict him of sin because of what he has not done of sin, because they believe not only what Sam said is a clenched in the face of God. Sam is failing to bow the knee sin is by reason against heavens King.

Only the Holy Spirit can teach you the courtroom may convict you of crimes, conscience, will convict you of wrongdoing, but only the Holy Spirit of God will approve the convict you of sin. When you understand that you have said no to the Lord Jesus Christ. If you've never really open your heart and received him as your Lord and Savior, then you will say God be merciful to me a set, the Holy Spirit of God teaches first of all, conception of sin, of sin, because they believe not, here's the second truth. The Holy Spirit will teach you something you will never learn in school not only the conception of sin, but the completion of salvation. Look, if you will now in the next verse, verse 10 of righteousness, because I go to my father and you see me know he comes convict of sin and to show the completion of salvation. What is a say of righteousness, because I go to my father well he left the father's house.

He came down after that dark shooting at night out of the ivory palaces into this world we lived a sinless prepping lie. He came to that cross. He took my sin. Your sin our sin upon the cross. He died upon that cross. He was later met coal to. He came out of that tomb the third day living resin victorious over sin and death hell and the grave. He ascended to the father to present his blood there before the fall in that tabernacle in heaven.

That's what he's talking about what he says I go to my father. I am going back to my father. It is done. I have paid the price for redemption and now there is one way one and only one way that a man can be righteous.

It is through my death, burial and resurrection and ascension back to the flock now in the Holy Spirit of God can teach you that because managing is not only concerning sin is also a great concerning righteousness. What is the average person thing that average person thinks he is a sinner. If he does wrong, so therefore he is righteous to be both right in that right in that what the average person thinks the average person thinks that righteousness comes by doing and being good but this verse in your margin. Romans 10 in verse three Paul spoke of the Jews of his day is what he said about them, for they being ignorant of God's righteousness. I listen to this being ignorant of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. The only hope that a man has of righteousness is Jesus. Let me tell you what Isaiah said to the people visited in Isaiah chapter 64 in verse six, but we are all as an unclean thing by the way, the word unclean thing means the bandage that would wrap the leper's putrefying soul, but we are all as an unclean thing, what's this and all of our righteousnesses are as filthy rags in his side that thinks it I'm talking about the things that you boast about all of our righteousnesses are as filthy rags in his side and we do all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind had taken us away.

The only way that you will ever see the portals of heaven.

The only way that you can ever go to heaven is through the death, burial and resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ and your faith in that fact, most of us think were too good to be done.

I've said before, the worst form of badness is human goodness. When human goodness becomes a substitute for the new birth. And I'm sure you don't. But when the Holy Spirit of God speaks to your heart, then you will agree is that I can't talk you into the you sit here and mentally argue with me that that's the reason I'm saying friend that you will not learn this in school and no preacher can teach you this Holy Spirit of God will teach you one of these days that you will center because you refuse the Lord Jesus Christ had a Holy Spirit of God will convict you one of these days that the only way the only way your only hope of heaven is to receive Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. And when you do receive the Lord Jesus Christ. I want you to see what you before you remember we said that your son because what you are what you do what you not done when you receive the Lord Jesus Christ and his righteousness that he deals with what you are.

We are by nature children of wrath, but when we get saved we become what partakers of the divine nature. The Bible calls this the new birth. Christians are not just people reformed that just not nicer people Christians are those that had a change made sure it changes what you and then he forgives what you've done.

Remember, you do what you do because what you are you changes what your anything what you've done every stain, every blot everywhere Dawn buried in the grave of God's forgetfulness and Laura sends me his baby white snow.

Though they be red like crimson, they become as wool for and that's the gospel.

But wait a minute. Not only does he change what we are not only does he cleanse what we've done. But here's what we need, which is righteousness. You see, he took our sin that we might take his righteousness. These are precious versus I want to share with you.

Romans four verses five and six. Put them in your margin, but to him that worketh not, but believe on him but justified on God's is counted for righteousness is counted for righteousness, even as David also describes the blessedness of the man under whom God amputated righteousness. Righteousness without works.

What I mean when you say Lord Jesus. I believe you died for me upon that cross I believe you paid my sin that I know that I'm a sinner.

I need to bow my knee before you and believe on you and trust you.

Then God says yes company I give you the major forgive your sin, and then I'll take my righteousness and I will imputed to you. That means I'll put it on your account, then how righteous are you here is righteous as Jesus Christ because you have his righteousness was a made work from Mama. She got say it was an infidel.

He ridiculed her. Her name was Betty. He said you claim to be saved.

What is it feel like to be saved. She said I don't think I could explain where you could understand, but she said it feels to me as if I'm standing in Jesus shoes and he standing in my theologian said it better myself. Righteousness.

I can preach this truth I Holy Spirit will teach you the when he is, he will convict you of San, he will convict you of righteousness, you will see a proper conception of San and you see a proper completion of salvation that Jesus ascended to heaven to pay that sin is 1/3 and final thing that you will not learn in school, you might learn from any preachers preaching until the Holy Spirit of God brings it to your heart not only the truth concerning sin and not only the truth concerning righteousness. But the truth concerning judgment continue to read in verse 11. Many says here's the third thing judgment because the prince of this world is judged doesn't say he's going to be judged.

This is perfect tense image is already taken place is the prince of this world, the prince of this world is the devil he's a god of this age, the prince of this world, but Jesus said he has all ready been judged the people of this world seem to think that somehow were waiting on the outcome of things to see who's going to win Christ antichrist God or Satan. Remember John 12 verse 31 Jesus facing that cross said this now is the judgment of this world right now is the prince of this world cast out the idea that one of these days we'll see how it works out. The average person thinks the average person has the idea that either. Somehow the whole scheme of things will be nullified or that somehow sin will get my that God will be merciful even if men do not repent of sin and receive his righteousness that is not true.

Our Lord must reign his enemies will lick the best there is no contest out there truth is mightier than error. Love is stronger than hate holiness is higher than sin in our Lord has one victory. Now folks, listening, Holy Spirit of God means to teach you that Satan's cause is a lost cause Satan sales a sinking ship. Satan rules a doomed domain.

He has all ready been sentenced, adjudicated a criminal.

He has been Josh sooner or later he's going to be thrown into that penitentiary, that lake of fire. God did not prepare health for you if you go to hell, which you may but if you go to hell you be an intruder. Jesus said in Matthew chapter 25 in verse 41, then shall he say also unto them on the left hand depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels below the greatest hellfire preacher in the Bible was J. E.

Is you is Jesus absolute fathomless Jesus about how Penny said that hell was prepared for that was Angel and Satan is already big John's. Here's a condemned criminal Sam can't wear pink campaign you need to learn.

Only the Holy Spirit of God can teach us. San righteousness and judgment, the conception of sin, the completion of salvation, the condemnation of Satan.

That's what the Holy Spirit of God teaches. If God took heaven's riches his own dear son and he died in agony and blood upon the cross, and you refuse such love, then you understand why the Bible says the Holy Spirit is come to convict him of sin, because they believe not only of sand because they believe not only of righteousness, because I go to my father judgment because the practice of this wireless. Many of you need to be saved today. My prayer my prayer is that the Holy Spirit of God has used the message today to speak to your heart because of the Holy Spirit of God is not speaking to you just have one more sermon mental but if the spirit of God is saying yes you are the one that needs to be say is no greater salesman refuse my son Jesus and all of your righteousness is as filthy rags and there's no possible way that your sin going to say you can hear that really then you will hear what the Holy Spirit of God is in her prayer and love with finding right now is that you are being sensitive to God's Holy Spirit in this time of reflection and prayer.
