So you're walking Dr. Tony Evans talked about the importance of faith is not one of the things you need thing you need.

This is the alternative with Dr. Tony Monger speaker, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative.

Jesus said we could do anything if we trust him enough that can be hard when the problems and pressures of life keep piling up.

While Don driven test of encouragement for you today as he takes us to Hebrews chapter 11 for today's lesson.

Let's join him for section of things not seen.

Then again, now the show something for the conviction of things not seen to be. It must have substance involved in all substance that is experience with the five senses is real based on the wording of the subject who was calling for the thing. The subject calling for the thing.

It's not she said after you've gone the will of God.

Hebrews 11 verse six is with now.

It is suitable to please God don't miss this one is not one of the things you need. It is the thing you need if you want to experience God. Why is God all went faith in without you have challenged the integrity of God. Now you know what I think is a big why God said with you. Do not please me. Just please me because you challenge my integrity 1st to 4 by faith.

The men of old gained approval of all meaning. In the Old Testament. He said I will take you New Testament Christians on the tool walk through what I call the hall of faith, the heroes of faith and he said, take you on a tool of them so they can help you come for the first witness don't come forth and testify.

No, come forth.

Some will come will come forth and she wants her sandwich, yellow some testify as well.

Don't give a testimony Joseph don't give a testimony to the gym and testimony on what you understand the fine football football great snow exceeded an Excel for them to be remembered.

God says this is not my intent in Ohio. Hebrews chapter 11. These are the men and women who demonstrate that this plaything works. You get your graduation certificate when you enroll in college you'll get it. Upon enrollment, you get a pun for filling the requirements when you have completed the will of God because some college for 20 recovery not completed the course we been called on to receive the approval of graduation. The validation and dictation of a life of faith we pick and choose when we want to believe God. We believe God on the things we like. We disregarded all the things we don't like living by faith we are cherry picking Buffy. He says the righteous is how they well faith is the exception is the rule. In spite of how they feel like the three Hebrew boys and said we believe God can deliver. But even if we know about because we trust God if I come back.

The stairs and back to chapter 3. The last thing on the tree. Install PC God is doing will still rejoice because even though I can see a change in my situation in spite of think about living life because of our refusal to live by faith and is confidence in something you do not see in the visible realm, but you are convinced of it. Spiritual you convince spiritually, although it hasn't been seen physically. So you're walking in expectation. One of the thing before we go on to our final point that some strange people in this list that some funky business that we will make in the lives would have made the list. You got a prostitute in this list and this list you got in this list. You gotta a passive man in this list. You gotta laugh in the face of God in this list all who may be some good news and some bad. Even though you all know now that you make the last some reasons hope you will not begin to stop thinking that the make play in church planting religion play in Christianity and not taking God seriously and stopping our challenge of his integrity because why would you answer the prayer of somebody who calls will I do everyday. God blessed me God God God change must not God challenged his promises lie dormant and unfulfilled becomes his final point is to verse three by faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are, I need to read that again because by faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen, what is visible was not made out of things which are said to make my point about faith. Let me take you all the way back to the beginning. He says that the world that we do see was created by someone using something you don't see Genesis 11 says in the beginning Wayne created the heavens and the earth.

That's the Hebrew name for the creator God found in Genesis chapter 1 verse one. Stay with me and noticed verse three as people.

That means the whole universe not just all the galaxies not exist. Once created by so you can see using stop you KC to create verse you can see that which is still trying to look at telescope, but the galaxies telescope can even locate what is seen this way from bringing stuff. You can see.

You can see any created with this strategy. Now what God use this energy to create verse and how first reason is by Arima word were more than willing word means a divine utterance of spoken word he spoke as one. Beginning God said, let there be light and it was like God say it won't be separated from the land and so got 60 word and what became because of what was somebody you don't see you KC is against God so you can see Centurion told Jesus speak and this will change but not everyone believes those divine utterances. Dr. Evans mentioned back to talk about that just a moment first. So what you're hearing today as part of his current series your best you as we are discovering.

I have her contact information for you again after part two of today's lesson and this racial tension. I mentioned spreading like wildfire.

Dr. Tony Evans talks about his book oneness embraced God's view on race and racism is not started on this one is raised explains why unity is just about getting along with getting things shot to serve together to get to know each other along the way. Oneness embraced yours world where we've been. The world was came from primeval slime grew into a grew into a monkey to develop self consciousness and became a man, you can go to college, faith, people understand that God spoke the divine.generation to generation that does not because we been we've been duped by education. We've been my philosophy is doing with ideas Emmanuel Constance, I think, therefore I am not getting degrees in ignorance with science spends time trying to prove the kind of science to prove all sciences is repetition of repeatable events for which they draw a hypothesis. Science is the recognition of repeatable events for which they draw and hypothesis, which often changes when new information is introduced to the equation as well through science will tell you one day you shouldn't drink coffee, you can drink coffee when you candy we can each week, everything we let the man God, leaving us with his promise being and reality being experienced in online since God is the same yesterday today and forever. He still operates on the principle that what you say comes from what you don't see what you don't see faith in what God says. You can see faith see you just discuss it in science class. Okay I notice nobody here top. Top there because a lot of our folks listen to the weatherman Mama Mia just said it's going to be Going to new Texas and the word is going on.

The word believe do it now and bring predictive and sometimes call no man is sometimes right to do. We take take a number we pick up a couple pick up a coat jacket take away sometimes right and I will call the T-shirt yet you write your prescription if you can read the prescription is not a real doctor description from a man you trust something to read about me something, read the Bible. I don't understand what it means but I know wrote because I have integrity going to take it to the pharmacy by picking up what was written from a person of integrity and the prescription writing on a piece of paper has integrity that is of absolutely no benefit? That does not have integrity outlined what he tells me to do in every area of life, not just in church life, not just in "the religious life with every aspect of life, my career, my money, my relationships, my singlehood not is not just have integrity on every subject and you won't until he Dr. Evans will come back to wrap up our program with the story about how to get that movement started, so stay with us first so the kind of faith Tony talked about today isn't just a way of life. It's the way to life. The Bible makes it clear that none of this is good enough or pure enough to make it to heaven on our own. Putting our faith in Jesus sacrifice on the cross is the only way to bridge the gap between human failure and divine forgiveness.
