Praying when you don't even have the words to express your pain. Listen closely to Adrian Rogers hurt so bad you couldn't even pray I have all you can do is just wrong, but you know it's the Holy Spirit who says I will wrong with you and I will pray for you and I will save for you before the father.

And so we have the Holy Spirit making intercession for us. To the throne and we have the Lord Jesus on the throne making intercession for us.

Welcome to love find in part on today's program, pastor, teacher and author Adrian Rogers shared that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is what turns every word into a hallelujah and that same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, now dwells in you and me. Jesus has freed us from the law of sin and death. There is no more condemnation for our sin, nor can it control us. However, though we have been freed from the curse of sin. We can still feel the hurt of it.

If you have your Bible turn now to Romans chapter 8 as Adrian Rogers delivers the powerful conclusion to turning hurts into hallelujahs. Romans eight begins in verses one through three. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus_the Lord condemnation, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit_the word flesh for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and that rather several words I want us to think about. The first is the word deal deal. That's a description of the world today where we condemn way the living lives according to the flesh, not the spirit all be free. And that is the grace that we experience again looked in chapter 8 verse one there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit of the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

The third thing that the grounds that we in new continue to read what you will. In verse 18 of the same chapter here and he says this for I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us for the earnest expectation of the creature and for the word creature you may write in your margin creation because that's what it literally means for the earnest expectation of the creation talk about all nature waited for the manifestation of the sons of God for the creation was made subject to vanity. That means that it is not living up to its original intention, not willingly, but by reason of him that is God who has subjected the same. That is the creation and hope because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God fall we know, Alyssa. Here's a key.

If you don't understand this, you gonna stumble in your Christian walk. But we know that the whole creation groans and trivalent and pain to gather until now.

Now what does he mean by that the whole creation groans. That means paying and paying and moan and groan and crying and dying and sign look at nature bloodied to start playing clause decay corruption everything that you see is dying and crying and sign the final breath of the K but gnawing to the corruption its own. Everything everything and so you is in creation.

Now what Darwin called the survival of the fittest is really the bondage of corruption. But there's a better time coming.

There's a better time coming. All of creation is standing on tiptoes waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God and God went when Adam's sin. God said the worst thing that can happen to a sinful creature would be to live in paradise.

So God took Adam out of paradise.

Can God put Adam in arrow that has the curse of same upon the thorns and thistles shall it bring forth under the you're going to earn your brand by the sweat of your face. Why because I want you to know that something deadly wrong in this world and all of the pain and all of the sorrow which we see in creation. That's the fever of the infection which is sin. Aren't you glad that God gives you fever when you have an infection is if you have a fever you would know you had an infection which so the fever is the symptom of the deeper problem, and so there is the groaning of creation, like around the world today. God did make the world this way God made the world perfect, but we see a world that is marred and starred in all of creation is groaning. Listen even to the wind as he goes through the trees. It's in a minor key. Everything is groaning and sighing and die there is the groaning of creation. Now watch this very carefully. There's also the groaning of the Christian notice in verse 23. This is talk about you and not only they want the creatures, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves whom within ourselves, waiting for the adoption do with the redemption of the body both your body is not yet ready. Your spirit is reading what your body is not yet redeemed you are waiting for the promise of Easter and so therefore you live in a body that has the curse of sin and it can because you live in a body that has the curse of sin and I to tell you this but I need to tell you this, you are not immune to suffering as you want me to tell you why we have so much suffering in the world about talk about those of us were saying will number one we live in a creation that has a curse upon friend is just he that's the way nature, and that's where we live and also not only do we live in a world that has a curse of settlement.

We live with other centers. There other people in this work and other people who would harm us there other people who make choices and we suffer because not only do we live in a world that has the curse of sin upon it, but we live in a world with other Santos and I will take something else we live in bodies that have the curse of sin upon moon sure body is not yet redeemed you are a son, daughter of Adam and you were born out of a polluted gene pool. I'm telling you folks, you have a polluted gene pool and so sooner or later you go to get sick sooner or later it's going to get you sooner or later the doctor is going to thump on your chest and $50 without handset you got a problem, not tell you this sooner or later, just so it's coming to the bad news makes a good news good. Now how I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us and not take something else.

Not only do we live in a world is cursed. Not only will it with other centers.

Not only do we have a corrupted body but sometimes we still choose to do wrong. No. And God has to chastise David said before I was afflicted I went astray and the Lord loves he chastens MM friend there just mysterious reasons why people suffer. I mean if anybody comes to you and they said well I just have all the answers just walk over and they don't have all the answers I'm telling you that there are mysteries in this world today but put it down big plane and straight.

There's the groaning of creation, there is the groaning of the Christian may here's the good news is also the groaning of the comfort tour look at the women. Verse 26 when talking about groanings now look at this.

Likewise the Spirit also help with our infirmities. That's our weaknesses, but we know not what we should pray for as we ought, but the spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Now what does the word comfort tour mean Jesus and I'll send you the Holy Spirit and he says he is the comfortable that's the Greek word Paraclete.

That means somebody was called alongside of you like of Dr. alongside a sickbed like a fireman alongside a fire like a lawyer alongside a person who is accused. The Holy Spirit comes alongside of us in all of our sorrow. Phillips translates this verse.

This way, his spirit within us is actually praying for us in those agonizing longings, which can never find words that ever hurt so bad you couldn't even pray I have all you can do is just grown.

But you know it's the Holy Spirit who says I will groaning with you and I will pray for you and I will intercede for you before the father.

And so we have the Holy Spirit making intercession for us before the throne of the throne and we have the Lord Jesus on the throne making intercession for us.

So there is the guilt that we exhibit there is the grace that we enjoy. But still there. The groanings that we endure the groaning of creation, the groaning of the Christian.

Thank God the groaning of the comfortable matter how now Mallory, what I'm trying to say about Easter where Easter turns every hurt into a hallelujah every tear Joe Perera every midnight to sunrise. Beverly Calvary, the resurrection go back again now to verse 18 and look at but remember Paul is doing some figuring and Paul says, for I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us. So now the guilt we exhibit the grace we enjoy the groanings we endure now here it comes, the glory, we expect that's verse 18. I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not aware there to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us about folks. That's what they chapter. Romans is all about.

There's not a greater chapter in all of the Bible. Then they chapter of Romans that you see folks we been prepared for glory. We been prepared for glory by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

That is the gospel that is the gospel, not just simply by trying to be better people.

Salvation doesn't come by learning lessons from the life of Christ, but by receiving light from the death of Christ. You understand that. So we are prepared for glory but watch this look in verse 28. Not only we prepared for glory, but we are predestined for glory. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, who are the called according to his purpose for whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son that he got son might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate bid me also called and whom he called, them he also justified and whom he justified, them he also glorified. He puts it in past tense, it's as good as done. You know what predestined means that mean settle me. It means settle you're looking at Amanda's glorified you say we don't look glorified. We dressing through your eyes. You have seen me through God's eyes and heart and mind of God. It is settle and Fran. What has been decreed in heaven cannot be annulled by hail and it cannot be a Moabite humanity because predestined means it's done. I have been prepared for glory. The death burial and resurrection of Jesus did that I am predestined for glory. The death burial and resurrection of Jesus did that and Fran. I therefore must be preserved for glory. Look, if you will now in the same chapter beginning in verse 31 what shall we say to these things. Fran job before us can be against us, he that spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all if God loved us enough to give Jesus you get anything else we need and I asked this question crucially, anything to the charge of God's elect is a job that justified who is he that condemns it is Christ's that die in a rather that is risen again, notice the word. It is is in italics, italics mean, that's been supplied by the translator to make it read more smoothly. In this case it doesn't make it read more smoothly.

He's asking a rhetorical question. Who is he that condemns Christ that die, rather, that is risen again is even at the right hand of God also maketh intercession for us. He says if you think my lawyers going to condemn me know. No lesson. He is saying that this nothing that can condemn us, listen who shall separate us from the love of Christ shall attribute Pete Mitchell seven enemies tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril are sold or verse 37 million all these things where more than conquerors not just conquerors. We don't kick a field goal.

The last three seconds when our cockroaches what he is saying is no flow can conquer us and Fran know fault can condemn us these seven enemies that Paul mentions a been enemies of Christians from time immemorial. Paul had experienced everyone of the seven enemies, persecution, trial peril, all of she said they can't separate you while they can do is draw your clothes.

Listen folks, no flow can condemn us because of Easter. No fee can conquer us because of Easter. No can condemn us because of Easter look in verses 38 and 39 Paul says prime persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come.

Hi my dad and Casey left anything out, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord, you know what they would do in Roman times when a person would be adjudicated guilty of a crime, they would put that person in prison and then they would nail on the prison door. A list of the crimes he committed and they would put under than the number of days, months, years that he must stay in prison to pay the debt. It was called a certificate of debt and was nailed to the prison door when that man had paid for his crime against the state. They would take that certificate of debt. The bailiff would go to the judge and say here is John Doe prison John Doe prisoner has paid in full. His crime against the state judge would take that thing called a certificate of debt and he would ride across it paid in full. One word in the Greek language Titleist paid in full.

He would hand it to the condemned prisoner and if anybody ever tried to bring them into double jeopardy he could show that certificate a bit written paid in full. Jesus Christ took my sin in your sin, to the cross. The Bible tells us in Colossians that Jesus took the hand writing that was against us and nailed it to his cross" I said paid in full. It is famous that's exactly the same word. The last time I had seen that paid its paid in full.

He took your certificate of debt service pain paid in full. No foe can condemn us, no fear, need control us know fault can separate us and I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not even worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us. There is the guilt there is the grace there is the grief. Thank God for the glory as what Easter is all about God doesn't destroy evil if you did, you wouldn't have a choice. God defeats evil, with the cross and resurrection, and a good Wyoming French army that has good staff. Fran that's what Easter is all about.

That's what you need to be saved. Why don't you pray a prayer like this.
