God's deadline to listen to Adrian Rogers as possible for God to give up on a man digitally. God will not always send his Holy Spirit to talk to Amanda. God is infinitely patient time and time and time and speaks of God losing God more than God's comes a time that you cross a deadline, God gentle, precious Holy Spirit no longer speaks to love worth finding featuring the dynamic lessons and insightful teaching Adrian Rogers in front of every unsaved person. There's a deadline God deals with sinners over and over again convicting us in loving patience, part one of today's message.

We learned that God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit and through situations we face. God also speaks through his believers and through Scripture, but sometimes when God convicts we still rebel. What happens if we continue to stiffen our necks to his direction. If you have your Bible turn now to Proverbs 29 is Adrian Rogers delivers part two of crossing God's deadline lays into the Bible teaches that every unsaved man.

There is a deadline and crosses that deadline, he is just as lost just as certainly do just as dust and frail, as though he were already there and as though the iron gates of hell had already clanged shut behind him. It is possible for man to commit the same in this life. It is possible for person to come in this life. Two point which if he commits that salmon transgresses and goes beyond that point he can never know never know. Never say he will cross God's deadline. Listen to the verse again even being often reprove and hard of his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed. B is suddenly destroyed. Destruction generally takes 34. First of all, there is the destruction of the mind through strong delusion, but instruction of the mind through strong delusion if you will please and second Thessalonians. The second chapter and verses 11 and 12 is what God's word say listen.

One of most amazing verses in all the board. This calls God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie now wait a minute, Pastor read that again.

You must of misread God doesn't send anybody delusion Desi yes he does. We sat on was the devil. C. People I thought was the devil that diluted people, but this verse. As for this reason God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. Why would God send anybody strong delusion.

What it tells us that they should believe a lie will why would God want them to believe alive and they all might be damn are is another translation that they all might be condemn what seems to get worse. Doesn't God.

Since delusion so that people will believe alive so that they'll be condemn. Why would God want them to be condemn what continue to read who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. Now pay attention when a person is presented with the crew and when the person on the other hand, has his unrighteousness and his sin has a choice and the opposite of truth is not Arab but it is sin overhears truth and overhears unrighteousness, and the man must make a choice.

He knows what God's truth says because that management often reprove but overhear is his unrighteousness and he says I choose my sin I choose this lifestyle. I choose against God. But when he chooses this package. This package of unrighteousness is wrapped up in delusion, and when he chooses this God says when you take the package you going in the wrapping, which is delusion and deception, and God will see to it that he believes a lot God himself. It is a part of God's righteous judgment is a part of God's poetic judgment. It is ironic that God sees to it in this manner does not will be true but has pleasure in unrighteousness. With that unrighteousness. The man is deceived he is deluded and God sees to it that he is not how does that work. Let me illustrate what happened. Suppose I preach a message on stewardship on giving and the devil sees to it that Amanda was here two years ago when I preached on that subject comes back two years later and I'm preaching this message on stewardship and Batman begins to mutter and sputter human velocities and money money money. That's all they would talk about an adventure to run a bunch of money grabbing so-and-so an Asian modern sitting there under his breath.

He never stopped asking to truly never stuff doesn't come out the word of God never asked the mind of God about the matter. He goes out of church, he says, is why Michael is mom I am never going back there and so he's just the just man stuff. Do you know is all hot under the collar about it now. He knows what is right, you heard the true righteousness and what is his unrighteousness is covetousness is greatest read as God is Noah's mother was going Camden County get boys in the residence and on the lien is the way he's wired and is just rotten sin. When is he going to have that salmon yes but with that saying you also have the delusion that comes with that same way. Sitting at home on Sunday morning. Whiskers grown out.

He's watching the sports channel on television. He's got a sixpack of embalming fluid thereby's right hand got cancer there by his left hand and he's just sitting there enjoying a Sunday morning and about that time somebody knocks at the door.

As to members from a well-known colt who said we've come to tell you there is no hail he's is coming coming and they come in and tell him alive and he believes I because he received on the level truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. God is sending strong mentorship 97 destroyed his mind he is destroyed his mental faculties are destroying you say sincere and may be sincerely sincerely wrong on a way to not only is there the destruction of the mind through strong delusion is also the destruction of the spirit by spiritual desertion you say what you mean spiritual desertion. I mean that the Holy Spirit will desert. Such a man when he crosses the deadline. Did you know that it is possible for God to give up on a man. Did you know that God will not always send his Holy Spirit to talk to man a woman a boy or girl.

The Bible says in Genesis chapter 3 in verse six in a solemn warning God speaking my spiritual not always strive with my spiritual not always strive with man. I got spirit does strive God is infinitely patient even being often reprove time and time and time and time again, God speaks and God moves and God warns in God we didn't God instruct, reprove, there comes a time when the Holy Spirit can be so insulted, so send against that you cross a deadline and God's gentle precious Holy Spirit no longer speaks to your heart.

Did you know that you cannot be saved unless the Holy Spirit of God brought you to Jesus Christ digital in my preaching can never save anybody.

Did you know that even the truth of the word of God cannot save you, unless the Holy Spirit of God makes that truth really your heart.

Did you know that. Did you know that I can preach truth, but only the Holy Spirit can impart truth and Jesus said, no man can come to me except the father which has sent me draw him, the spirit of God must draw you to Jesus Christ you must be brought by the Holy Spirit to Jesus Christ. But there comes a time when the Holy Spirit of God may be so blasphemed that the spirit of God will no longer speak your heart. Listen to the Scripture Romans chapter 1 verse 24 wherefore God also gave them a Romans chapter 1 verse 26 for this reason God gave them up. Romans one verse 28 even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over twice it says God gave them up once it says that God gave them over. How does that work. How does it really work will number one.

You see, God must have spoken you clearly and plainly, and you must have deliberately and willfully rejected Jesus for this to happen.

Let me illustrate what I'm talking about an interesting passage in Hebrews chapter 6 beginning in verse four. Listen to what is impossible for those who were once enlightened and that's the key people who been enlightened people that God's Holy Spirit has spoken to for it is impossible for those who were once enlightened_Lord enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift_word tasted and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost_that word partakers of the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the power of the world, literally, and the power of the ages to come, if they shall fall away to renew them again to repentance, seeing they crucify themselves the son of God afresh and put him to an open shame.

Now the Bible says it is impossible renew. Some people repent is absolutely totally 100% that these people could repent and get right with God. These are people who are enlightened. Their eyes were opened.

These are people who have tasted the power of the word of God, these are people been made partakers of the Holy Ghost is not talking about people who been saved and then lose their salvation. He's talking about people and come up to the very brink of salvation go with her eyes wide open.

Crucify Jesus, as it were again, they refuse Christ they tremble beneath their feet. The precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and they know what they're doing. I mean they do it after they know the true it's very similar to this of you been to the supermarket and going back there to the back by the dairy counter and sing with a giving way and some supermarkets and samples of Chi toothpicks and little bits of cheese and master simply to whet your appetite.

You go back and say I missed was like a little sample cheese go back there and taste that buoyant taste so good you taste your cheese town you really like cheese and you say Dodge is really like. They give me 3 pounds of soda wrap up 3 pounds and you carried to the front.

Check out counter when you get there you look at the register and assess $13 for 3 pounds of cheese is it will wait a minute hold is that the cheese all will know. As for the she $30 is right.

You know I came from, or Mongolia or somewhere that's that's important cheese that is very rare cheese and that's what you always on cost of $30 you save will now wait a minute, just put it back to back. I know what it is and I know how taste but I'm not going to pay that kind of price for that year as a person who knows exactly what it is that he is refusing. He's already tasted it and that's what the Scriptures on that piece tasted about the word, his eyes over his eyes wide open to God and when he does that he may sample the deadline he may so send us the Holy Spirit. That is I is being open and cause him to commit a sin that is more horrible.

Are you listening more terrible and more tragic than those who took those searing males and pounded them into his quivering flesh. I am telling you that they commit a greater sin than those who mail them to the cross of Calvary. The writer of Hebrews says that they crucify the son of God afresh and put him to an open shame. And here's the different user want to be the difference in crucifying him the first time, crucify him and in our hearts.

The second time when Jesus was crucified.

The first time to remember what he prayed, he prayed while father forgive them for they know not what they do right, but when you crucify him. After having been enlightened, he can't pray that for you because you know what you're doing you know what you have tasted the power of the word of God made partaker of the Holy Spirit.

You have been brought under conviction crucify Christ with your eyes wide open open shame Holy Spirit of God and be so that he no longer speaks to your heart. The old-time theologians used to call that when the lights go out on the road was a tragic thing when a man not only has strong delusion, but he has spiritual desertion. The Holy Spirit of God, just desserts. God gives them up. God leave them alone is a passage in the Old Testament says that Ephraim is joined to his idols letting just let alone John Mary Susan been around for his idols. Just leave him alone gave them a strong delusion spiritual desertion and then Sunday just like that you go you see when a man crosses the deadline many times right after that, he dies suddenly is an interesting passage in the book of Genesis that speaks of the ancient Amorites and God set them the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full lesson. Genesis 15 and verse 16. The iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full, not Amorites lived in Canaan. God knew who the Amorites were and there was a measuring cup and God was measuring their sin and assented not yet come to the brim. It was not yet full and so God did not command that they be destroyed, but then there came another time in Deuteronomy chapter 7 in verse 17, where God says thou shall destroy them utterly now.

God has a measuring cup with you and one day, your sin may feel that cup to the brim, and God will say it's time for her to be destroyed. This time for him to be destroyed. Ladies and gentlemen, listen to me when God judges your sin. God does not judge your sin primarily by the outward sin committed, but by the inward light rejected the understand that, and the Bible teaches that the greater sin is the rejection of spiritual truth is greater than adultery is greater than fornication.

It is greater than arson, rape and murder the greatest sin is the sin of unbelief. God will not allow you to display this on and tremble beneath your feet.

His blood but only so long and it comes a time when God's cup of patience and mercy is to the brim.

And then it would be too late to be truly sudden. That sudden destruction, and there will be no remedy now is one last thing, I'll be finished knows what I said this spiritual direction, God speaks he warns, he pleads, he speaks in many ways I've mentioned their stubborn disobedience. People harden our names.

There is sudden destruction.

First of all, mentally strong delusion. Spiritually, Holy Spirit desserts them and physically. Many times there is a Sunday. There is also a settled destiny. Listen to the verse he that may often recruit and harness his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed and that without remedy. Is there a chance after death, absolutely, totally not now there's some people who teach and preach that we have a second chance after we die to get right with God that is false, that is heresy and I do not want to leave at home to you, dear friend, if you want to be saved. You may be saved if you need to be safe.

Christ can save you and whosoever will make him but I want to tell you with all of the urgency emergency function and onto my soul. You will not come to the judgment bar of God and be able to throw yourself on the mercy of the court and say God I now believe I have mercy on God and save if you want mercy you may have it if you will grace you may have. If you want forgiveness you may have it but you must have it in this like the Bible says the old now is the accepted time. Behold, today's the day of salvation.

The Bible says it is one of the men once to die, and after that is not a second chance. But after this the judgment, the Lord Jesus in the 16th chapter of Luke told about two men who died a rich man and a poor man a better and rich man, the rich man's name. We don't know the beggar's name was Lazarus the rich man died. The Bible says in hell he lifted up his eyes being employment and he saw Abraham and Lazarus in his bosom of Morrow and this man in hell cried out this way. Father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Lazarus that he made the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue prime tormented in this plane and God spoke to him through Abraham and said it is impossible between you and us. There is a great golf that is fixed and those who would pass from where you are and where we are cannot count and those of us who would come from where we are to comfort you cannot come date is a great golf six and as a soul dies, so shall it be in the Bible we read in Matthew chapter 25 and verse 46 and they shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into life eternal and the same word that is translated everlasting is the word that is translated eternal and the life in heaven is eternal than life in hell is eternal, and God uses the same word to describe both in the book of Ecclesiastes. The Bible says in verse three in the place where the tree falls, there shall in law. Now someone is written these words as the tree falls so must it lie as a man lives so will he die as a man dies, so will he be all the years of eternity that the Bible teaches that there is no remedy. Listen, don't die without Christ.

Don't cross the deadline. I did some Bible study and I looked at this phrase in a number of different translations listen to one says, and he shall be without remedy. The other says never have another chance. Another says he's beyond healing. My mother says he's broken beyond repair.

Another translation says he is suddenly done for all of them say the same thing. There is a settled destiny, I beg you, I plead with you come to the Lord Jesus. One of the greatest preachers of our past generation with Dr. Joanne Rankin from Arkansas. He was preaching in evangelistic message and when he finished the message he gave the invitation, I saw a young man there write about in the middle part of about a young man seem to be under conviction. He watched him as he looked like he was going to start out as hard Christ and that he step back in and the preacher stood and pleaded. As I plead. Sometimes a come to Jesus and a young songbook and closed it and put it down and really started out I think of something God is coming. He's coming. But as he went down the stairs rather than coming through the doors and out of the front.

He went into the volume amount into the street and left the revival meeting in a few weeks. Dr. Joanne Rankin's was called to the bedside of that young man who been diagnosed with a fatal disease and was dying. Dr. Hankins thought he recognized him and said son I will ask you question. Were you in our services, unless in such a night.

Yes the young man did not know we had the disease. At that time were you saying about me. Yes, when I gave invitation.

Did you have design coming to Dr. Jesus Christ, yes or tell me about son. He said preacher when you preach that message again that invitation. I want to get down there where you were and confess Christ as my Savior so strongly that I felt like I could jump over a balcony rail to get will son you didn't, I saw you leave which one outside what happened. He said each time I start to come forward. I thought of my favorite sin, and I knew that if I came forward I have to give up that sentiment was a struggle in my heart. Finally I made up my mind I would have my Sam and I close my handle and I left and went outside. I made up my mind I would choose my sin. The pastor began to weep.

He said when a son is the doctor told you how secure yes if you'd like to be around the bush with me. I know I'm going to die, will son. I would ask you to give your heart to Jesus right now because if you're going to die. You can have you seen anyway what you are to Jesus and asking to save you, but young men said no I will not give my heart to Jesus. He said son I don't understand you said you wanted to be saying. He said preacher is something you do not understand. He said when I close that songbook and walked out of the church something died within me. He said I can't give my heart to Christ. Hankins said he played with tears and young men to come to Christ he and his neck against God shows in a sense it's God's deadline was nothing waiting for the young man with certain judgment. Listen, he that may often reprove and hardens his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed that without remedy this message today may be God's final call someone today lets you listen today if you heard God speaking to your heart to turn from your sin and respond to his offer of forgiveness. If you are ready to surrender your life to Christ pray with me right now father in heaven. I know that I've sinned and I know that sin separates me from you. You sent your son on a rescue mission to die in my place to take the punishment that I deserved. So right now I surrender. I believe that Jesus did that for me, and rose again to new life and I receive the gift of salvation that your offering come into my life saved me, cleanse me, make me a new person I trust in what the Lord Jesus did for me and not in myself and I pray in his name.
