What we think what the folks we don't think Dr. Tony Evans is we pollute God's word with our ideas and traditions long gone. You celebrating 40 years of faithful.
This is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans authored speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the alternative to many Christians build their lives around what people say about the Bible instead of what the Bible says about people today.
Dr. Evans explains why that's such a dangerous temptation as he talked about the real authority for kingdom, Christians must join you there teams in any football game but in the middle of the field. There is a 13 team of officials do not belong to the other two things they belong to the league office.
The kingdom on Park Ave., Avenue sets the rules about how things one on the field. The job of the officials to reflect the rule of the kingdom from new on the field of play.
When the battle is a carry bag job is not to join 13 becomes independent of both teams when initial operates by his own rules, he loses his authority because his already is only lies when he is operating according to league standards to ensure that unofficial football field is operating with the league standard is given a book to study that will memorize that both utilize that book for every single decision he makes on the field every decision he makes on the field has to be able to be validated by the book when he makes a decision that cannot be validated by the book, he loses the support I believe because Anna is a football game gets to rule and agrees with disagrees with the decision overruled by the commission because it is designed to reflect the commission up on the field his representatives on the field is officials. We have a name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Christ has been ties. If you will, by God, the father to lament what happens in history, the Bible says there is one mediator between God and man. And that is the man Christ Jesus. Jesus is the Commissioner and his job is to the officials on the field. The officials on the field of believers. Those who come to Jesus Christ for salvation to function properly. Our Commissioner kingdom has given us a book called the Bible is what control all the decisions that officials decision in the field of life would make visions by means of its agreement with the book. One of the officials believe they lose the commission. One of the reasons we're not saying the kingdom disbands from the king that we've written no book and officials the right book, they only get to implement the book. That is the truth about the commission you and I belong to a kingdom we have a K be the final court of appeal on all matters that he agrees the and he agreed to heal because the kingdom agenda is the visible manifestation of a copy of the rule of God over all of why do you need to know this. You need to know this because your experience of the kingdom of the sky to its connection to the book from a connection to the you lose the already of the kingdom and the benefits of the king. In other words, many of God's children on their own because they have in the book, not knowing that the same time they sidelined the king in the Scripture Reading your hearing from Exodus 19.
He takes a couple of RT words he says in verse five. If you obey my voice and my company you operate under my governance shall be my own possession among all the people's mind and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation you going to be special, unique, only mean special set apart unique average ordinary you going to be in a class by yourself. If you operate my covering. You will not be my kingdom. Why already.
Why are individual being controlled by everything but God. Why is family, the Grayson being caused so that families are falling apart. Wow, is not or charge.
God's covenants and for the individual, the family, the church in the society at large. The government and God wants to leave all of because he said all the earth is mine, but he will by means of his word from his word. Let's get this straight Bible is not simply words about God is the word of God may people learn about God from the Bible, which is legit but you will quit. There is the voice of God in print is the word of God, not merely words about God is no God work physically. Is this written down Bible claims of foreign Jesus put it this way.
He says in John 1034 and the word of God cannot be broken based cannot be a no cancel or may void how you view the Bible and how you respond to the Bible will determine your money, or lack thereof, that is your ability to rule authority is your ability to rule review Deuteronomy 4. This is very convicting. As I walk through it because I was a soft fresh how God feels about his word he says in verse one now Israel. Deuteronomy 41.
Listen to the statutes and the judgments which I am teaching you to perform so that you may live in go in and take possession of the land which the Lord, the God of your fathers is giving you… He fits pay attention why why why why cannot pay attention.I'm going to tell you how to get what I have given.
I'm going to tell you verse once again what have given to you. Remember you have already been blessed with all spiritual blessings.
Ephesians 13 in places like everything God gives you. You already have.
There is nothing new. You can get from God. It is already been in your account.
Everything God is doing for you with you every blessing you receive in like God is deposited, but you have to get Revelation 22 makes it even stronger by Williams with this model. 1122 verse 18 testified to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book.
If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues, which are written in this book and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life, from the holy city, which are written in this book and play with my word just what officials don't get to the book, nor did I get to take away from the book they just keep implement the book but with the implementation of the book comes my watch what he says in verse five of Deuteronomy 4, CIF taught you the statutes and judgments were God, just as the Lord my God commanded me that you should do in the land where you are entering to possess it, tell you how to roll on the tell you how to do this stuff so you is your understanding in the side of the People's war heal all the statues word and say sure this great nation is a wise and understanding people for what nation is there solely to it as the Lord our God.
We call you. Hope you miss that. He says don't turn to the right don't turn to the state and see what you when you call me. The formula on God. Prayer must be connected to his word for you to see an answer, asking from God gives me no response because Christians have left word did not proceed around the word of God by adding to and taking from and the main way we add to it and to confirm it is human opinion. We and what we think what the folks we know. Think and as Jesus told the Pharisees in Matthew chapter 50 you make invalid the word of God with your traditions.
He says nations are supposed to know and see God's authority operating in the lives of individuals and families and churches and even in the society for, says the nation should see that you are a unique people why because they receive authority. They will sleep you ruling rather than being when you leave the book you lose the authority kingdom authority you do not experience with Dr. evidences kingdom, believers sometimes wind up being unique people in ways that don't seem to make sense. More on that when he continues her message just a moment. Stay with us. Words cannot express my gratitude to God for his faithfulness would've thought it would have taken this urban kid out of Baltimore, Maryland given him the opportunities allowing me to earn a doctorate degree the church ministry that would model what we been doing nationally and internationally through this ministry that he would build up and give us a staff who are committed to getting this out, reaching hundreds of hundreds of thousands of people with the truth of God.
All manner of ways. The impact individuals and families and churches and even communities with the worldview of the kingdom agenda visible manifestation of the comprehensive God of every area of life and I'm certainly grateful for all the friends he's given us to keep us being able to get God's truth into a needy world.

That's Tony Evans training.org. Let me explain some more to be crystal clear on this, I mean no disrespect to God when I say this, but God sometimes can be weird in the words of Isaiah 55 my ways are not your ways, my thoughts are natural phones. If that they are not even close as high as the heavens above the earth.
That's how different I am you so you can look at you another one who looks like you and decide for me because the way I will get in the way you will wait in the way way. That's why you have to limit yourself in your decision-making to the book because many of the things God says you will like the question is does he know enough and has he been around enough and have you been doing this long enough to know what is talking about.
And there are enough of us here who made enough mistakes to know we don't know enough, enough to know when we thought was okay and found out disagree with God when it did it anyway God is right and we will leave much of the Bible. I don't understand I got I got your sick you go to the doctor you say say stomach doctor examines you and he says okay you write a prescription if you can read it again will not you came right you understand the keening read it from going to the pharmacist manning to the pharmacist stop you from taking it even though you don't understand very few must ask the pharmacist to break down all the ingredients that made up the thing about will say give me the exegesis of the pill down so that I know every syncretic element that makes up this particular pill that I'm going to put in my stomach will understand and swallow it.
We believe what we couldn't understand because of account of the personal gain trust you take up you didn't understand. You know about because you know not working as well with what I'm because we have the word we have made it a religious word about God word of God is with me. It means you can no longer operate on what you believe to be true. Okay, not if you authority.
Authority means the ability to. You cannot believe what you believe to be true with your mouth.
I know my true truth I know my true shed telling me you know what you believe to be true. The promise of God. John Davis, you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. It's the truth that sets you free, not what you believe to be true because of what you believe to be true if the true, then you have false belief even though you really believe all Scripture is God's correction is the Scripture gives you the truth, all also know you will not rule rule let people know will station the kingdom of God by which we measure so we close with this verse. First Thessalonians chapter 2 verse 13 says for this reason, we are constantly thanking God that when you receive the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is the word of God which also performs its work in you believe he said we told it to you but you didn't think it was just a man talking you received it for what it really is God the Word of God. And that's why you check everything I say about the book. If I have a guest speaker you check everything they say about a book when I don't have all call another path. You better make sure you think because the Bible is to be the standard decision-making.

Dr. Evans will explain why. The same is true for the human spirit as he explores the upside of falling down right now though he's back with a final comment for today was in the old Negro baseball league umpire big strapping guy.
