Only hope of salvation is by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Listen to Adrian Rogers. Religions of the world all winter removal difference between these two religions is the difference between heaven and hell yes I will pass Toronto's way out of the shed Lord Jesus Christ. Question is another way other than the shed. One of the Lord Jesus Christ tell me why did Jesus die.
Welcome to the word finding featuring the dynamic lessons, a beloved pastor and Bible to Adrian Rogers Genesis 4 tells the story of two brothers Kane and 81 was a martyr the other a murder in their story we see a picture of the blood of Jesus that makes a difference in part one of today's message we began to analyze the stark contrast in their worship while Kane offered a halfhearted sacrifice of fruit of the ground. Abel offered the first of his flock. A spotless lamb which was a prophecy of Jesus, who was to come and redeem. If you have your Bible turn now to Hebrews 11 verse four as Adrian Rogers shares part two of this message, the blood makes a difference care. All the fruit of the ground. He offered vegetables. The Lord will offer to the Lord a slain lamb of the firstlings of the flock Bible says that God accepted the offering of able. But he did not accept the offering of Cain.
Now we go to see in this chapter. Hebrews chapter 11 and Genesis chapter 4, some conference. Are you ready first of all, here was a contrast in their worship to boys that worshiping God one is worshiping in spirit and in true and the other is worshiping by his own ingenuity now. Remember Hebrews chapter 11 in verse four by faith Abel offered him to God. A more excellent sacrifice. Now what was the difference will matter say this and listen to me very carefully.
All religions are not of the same value God had respect on the Abel's offering to Cain's offering. He did not now when he came to God with his offering of vegetables and fruits. It must've been beautiful. I mean, it must've looked like a county fair. That is the most fragrant fruit, the most beautiful flowers. The most succulent vegetation and he offers us to God because he been out there plowing the ground but the Bible says Christ is the ground of the sweat of your brow will you till the ground and what he is gone is he is offering his own words put in your margin June verse 11 while under them, for they have grown the way of Cain. What is the way of Cain is to try to save yourself by your own good works, rather than by the grace of God. It represents culture rather than Calvary value in Hebrews chapter 11 in Hebrews chapter 9 verse 22. The Bible says without the shedding of blood is no remission.
There is no salvation apart from the shedding of blood. What can backspace all well.
The Bible says Abel offered up the firstlings of his flock go back again if you will. In Genesis chapter 4 in verse four and Abel, he also brought up the firstlings of his flock. Abel's offering was based on a blood atonement difference between these two. I say people need to turn from religion to Jesus Christ. Religion is what sinful people do for a holy God.
The gospel is the good news of what a holy God has already done for sinful men. The Bible says in Hebrews chapter 11 verse four by faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice.
Now where did Abel get the idea of bringing a blood offering Almighty God not remember was just a shadow of of the Lord Jesus Christ where to begin that idea when Adam and Eve sinned against God, they tried to clothe themselves with fig leaves. What is that the fruit of the ground.
What did God do God came into the garden of Eden, and God made them coats of skin animal skin had to get coats of skin, blood had to be shed, where did Abel learn the idea that it takes blood without radio shedding of blood is no remission. He learned it from his parents. Abel is called a prophet of God. Abel was a martyr who died for his faith. Adam and Eve had two sons, one martyr, one worker, Abel was a prophet. He understood the word of God. Now don't get the idea that these people out there just plowing mistakes and didn't know anything know and I'm say something else. The blood of the Lord Jesus Christ was not an afterthought. It was not an emergency action before he swung this world and the space Godhead redemption by blood in his mind. There is a red river of life, it begins to flow in the book of Genesis and it flows all the way through that river began to flow. When God made coats of skin for Adam. Many and then that river Bastogne down when able deck of the firstlings of the flock and offered a blood sacrifice to the Lord. The first act that Noah did when he came out of the ark after Genesis 6 and the flood came, was offer a blood sacrifice. God called Moses and Moses said, God said to Moses. Moses take my people from the land of Egypt them & in darkness and slavery and bring them into the promised land. And God said to Moses, when you do this in order to let the people go out to every family take a lamb and sacrifice that lamb and put the blood of that lamb on the doorpost of that house because my death Angel is going to come to the land of Egypt, and God says my death Angel is going to be looking for something.
He's going to be looking for the blood and if the blood is thereupon the doorpost what God says when I see the wipe the blood, I will pass over you without shedding of blood is no remission of sins, and then after Moses got in the land God gave them the Levitical law and they were told how to make those sacrifices and every smoking altar of every Jewish temple.
It all points to the coming of Jesus and thousands and thousands of lambs and rams in turtledoves offered and shared this. What is God doing all that God is conditioning his people as a conditioned response when they see the blood they know that Sam means that sin means death to sin means that sin means that therefore people are ready for the death of the Lord Jesus Christ when he died upon the cross without shedding of blood is no remission. Don't think this was incidental Frank. This is fundamental. There was a contrast in their worship now. Secondly, the consequences of the worship look, if you will.
In Genesis 4 verses five and six but under Cain and his offering. God had not respect. And Cain was very raw, plain English.
He was ticked off his anger and his countenance fell in the Lord sent him again, why art thou wrong and why is thy countenance fallen now. God did not have any respect for came in all his good intentions and all of his good works.
The difference between Cain and Abel is the difference between righteousness and righteousness that you would say what God would say to Cain when you try and you didn't get hundred percent, almost test but I want to grade on her. God doesn't grade on the curb. God then just give a for effort, and God will not overlook sin but a damn big claimant straight. God will not overlook sin for other people say we God's too good to punish sin. They got backward God is too good not promising if you had to go through all the lectionary's and dictionaries of the world begin a war that would describe God and put it in one word course that would be impossible, but he had to choose one word above all other words, it would be the word holy holy means a God never has God never can.
God never will overlook sin. All sin must be punished if God overlook sin. God would topple from this throne of holiness, God would cease to be a righteous God put in your margin Romans chapter 3 verse 23 for all of sin and come short of the glory of God. By the way, you will know what definition of sin is come short of the glory of God go lie down again alongside some old hypocrite say I'm longer and he is so measure yourself that way. Here's the glory of God. Here you are, the gap between the glory of God in you, that sin always seem to come short of the glory of God, let us now notice verse 24 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past.
What is Lord. Propitiation me is a big word.
It means satisfaction. Nothing can satisfy the righteousness of God. The holiness of God except the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. God cannot, God never has God never will. Let any sin go unpunished. Your sin will be pardoned in Christ are punished in hell but it will never be overlooked.
I frequently said when a guilty man is acquitted, the judge's condition God would let sin go unpunished. God himself would become a center all Christianity is described in three sentences.
I deserve tell Jesus my hail is nothing left for me, but his hip is what it's all about. It is salvation by grace and the consequences of that worship is lasting not only in time, but in eternity now Abel was killed by Cain but he didn't cease to exist, he being dead yet speaks for the child of God. Death is not a. But, that he still lives overnight. Here's the third and final thing I want you to see not only contrast in the worship and the consequences of the worship but I want you to see the conflict of their worship likely will now in Genesis 4 verses five and eight, but under Cain and his offering he had not respect.
And Cain was very angry, raw, and his countenance fell and the Lord said to Cain wipe out wrong wise I countenance fallen, if thou does well. Shall thou not be accepted and that is not well, sin lies at the door. Sin is like an animal crouching at the door.
That's what that literally means God says if you do what I tell you do you'll do well. God is no respecter of persons and sin lies at the door and on to the shall be his desire that his sin is ready to devour you, and thou shalt rule over him. That is if you do right, and Cain talked with Abel his brother and it came to pass that while they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. I was listen very carefully.
The first murder was over religion. The first murder was over religion and it was a religious crowd that crucified the Lord Jesus Christ as eyesight Adam and Eve had two sons. One was a murderer. The other was a martyr. Why did came kill Abel because his heart was not right with God. No man could be wrong with God and right with his fellow brother faults related is characterized by force our faith is characterized by low you think of what is happening in the world today, you think of the people who are being murdered in the name of religion there showing the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. Perhaps Cain was to refined all for a blood sacrifice. But it was not to refine the plunge alive for whatever into his brothers bosom now listen to John 16 verses one through four and Jesus said these things have I spoken and you that you should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues gave the time, that whosoever kill with you will think you do with God service. Does that sound contemporary time will tell, that whosoever kill if you were thinking of God service and these things will they do unto you because they have not known the father, nor me, but these things have I told you that when the time shall come that you may remember that I told you of them these things I said them to you at the beginning because I was with you. Jesus said, no fine print of the contract. I take time to time will come when they kill you will think they do God a service now friend the word martyr and were witness of the same word in the Greek language death doesn't make martyrs. It just simply reveals what is our true faith. True faith is never based upon force. One of the greatest mistakes. The so-called Christian church ever made was the Crusades.
When we tried by force to spread our faith. You say don't you believe in self-defense. I believe it will all my heart I believe at times we need to go to war but not to spread the Christian faith.
We spread the Christian faith with love. That's the difference friend between true religion and false religion.
The salvation of Jesus Christ is by grace through faith based on the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and it is never coerced matter, Cain slew a Cain was the loser, not a he won the martyrs crown, the two religions in the world only to the true and false.
The difference between these two religions is a difference between heaven and hell yes I will pass Toronto's I is another way other than the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. You do but ask your question. If there's another way other than the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ tell me why did Jesus die. The Bible says if righteousness come by the law. Christ isn't dead in vain. If a man all woman oh boy girl could be saved any other way than Calvary was a blunder.
Why did God let Jesus dial that cross if there's another way. Why not take the other way. Why did he allow his darling son to die in agony.
Blood if this another way, there is no other way. Hebrews 922 without shedding of blood is no remission. There is a red river blood that flows through all the Bible what can wash away my sin.
Nothing but the blood of Jesus want to make me but the blood of Jesus.
A preacher a good man as the world goes a compassionate man is a world goes had the religion of Cain fellow preachers with the religion of Cain. He had the religion of Cain. He was from a very liberal denomination. He was in a study there was a knock on the door.
He opened the door there was a little girl just totally dressed and he said the lady what can I do for you. She said can you help me get mothering she's at home she's dying. She sent me out to find a preacher down dinner and I had to get my mother ran.
My mother is dying, which is a yes we are all going to put on his coat, got his hat and went with the little girl down to the poor section of town they are indebted to him that there was a woman older deathbed die, not even with the doctors and nurses to take care and begin to tell her about the sermon on the Mount in living right in doing good, and kindness in all of these things hi wonderful platitudinous ideas.
I remember he didn't reach the blood atonement. This was a religion of culture and works the religion of Cain woman have distraught look on her face. She said you don't understand. I have lived a sinful and wicked life and now I'm dying in all that you say sounds very good and wonderful but I can't do that, don't you have a message for woman like me. That preacher began to think that he realized I don't have a message for woman and then he remembered the story that his mother told him before he goes off to the seminary and gotten educated about a Savior who took our sins and carried them to the cross and in agony and blood died, and said it is finished and paid in full and he went back and told her that old story, though he himself didn't really believe it. Told her about Jesus told about the cross talk about grace this letter and she sprayed less Christ into your heart was gloriously say later on that liberal preacher stood up in another preachers meeting and gave testimony. Here's what he said is that service that night. That woman came in and I came into I came into to choose say what can wash away my sand blown Jesus two religions two ways. Cain and Abel vegetables in a land where you lay your pride in your good works in the dust and will you today say just as I am, without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me oh Lamb of God, come to the eye, where you for your sake, for his sake.
