Dr. Tony Evans says a confused man is the beginning of a confused family. But in this lesson, he explains that if you want to bring your family into focus, you need to start by getting some clear direction from the Lord.


Make Dr. Tony Evans talked about how a man's leadership, lack of shapes his family's life celebrating 40 years of faithful.

This is the alternative Dr. Tony author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the alternative. They say it takes two to tango. Dr. Evan says a successful marriage takes three he explains today and one of his classic sermons drawn from the archives of 40 years of ministry begins by setting the stage for the origin of this particular lesson with these words about his own family. Kids were growing up, we would often have this chaos. Sometimes it would be just them fighting each other sometimes them fighting us. We had to restore order to to the discord that had erupted in our home.

That's what God wants to do with the same thing we had to do with our family without children with do this. Children restore order. Where chaos is and with that in mind, let's get started with his lesson titled paradise restored to create the universe outside of himself. What all this and see the exterior to himself to help himself. We need that we complement and support people doing Carrie Johnson relationship boasting, and what on creation in a unique way creates, creates man he got so way that is interesting.

Verse 26 of chapter 1 lot like this and let them see the birds of the air all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the image of God he created him male and female he created them, be fruitful about the plot see the bird and every beast that moves on the earth, so man is created is created the universe or the more specifically to be all want to be the chief manager of God's creation job it is to run his creation creates man to give you real responsibility in history now. Chapter 1 is explaining how man came to me, God wanted to make the chapter to explain a man coming to be. Why man was coming to be a balance of all God we call it the garden of Eden. But God even if man's house, but the sum total of his responsibility, because you remember in chapter 1 all that God will protect the rest of the world this point got everything he picked it up man number seven bring the nostrils the breath of life gives him a garden of Eden verse eight, and he puts man in it and will ground the Lord every tree Shady is good for food, and it is nice to look at. We got a lot of trees in the garden but they have to tree a tree of life as a tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Verse 15 then the Lord God God and keep it because even though senior he taught you, but you gotta learn that you must have a job.

Maybe what you need to know before day to day job. Good job job and the theology of work. Why so much will share with the workers verse of this work is supposed to be enjoyable doing something that you do not like you're not pulling God ordained commandment regarding work the Lord God commanded the man may free verse 16, but the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat of it you shall surely die. You are going through a probation. Probation. On the floor's where I obeyed God all will also happening before you get why because this is regarding bank statement. Whatever long-term report about how well the response to what going to do regarding God in his life has tremendous repercussions in the married lady got to rebel against God. You repercussions man. It is important that you understand who is calling verse 19 on the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field bird brought Adam to see what he would call them whatever Adam called each living creature that was its name.

You talk about a scholarly job, scholarly job name every animal or every species of animal scholarly job and like everything fits the animal. It's called the concept of calling an elephant or squirrel Jeff so if you know how brilliant man well before he was able to name every species of animal and every nature, so a brilliant man now catch this guy.

God does not give a wife and tell you been told it can be a woman. God said agenda name and naming the back to get the blessing of his priorities straight and his priorities were to obey the word of God. Now probation. You can eat whatever you want me to leave the bell went but right now he's not eating the tree of life nor eating the trailer now on probation and that while there Adam gave names verse wanted all the animals and everything, but one that was not found a helper comparable to him so Adam knows now happening in the animal that is missing is Rev. with the crocodile of the Mrs. crocodile nor Mr. bear the burden without the permitted zebra but then omitted around and not all that he had name would work so something not what this also segmented that it's not wrong to need a woman because there is no sin in this man needs woman, so it's not that big boys don't need women is that the mature you get, the more you see, the more you can do it by yourself. And that's why you need to help me. A man in the pool who does not use the expertise of his wife to help them accomplish God's calling on his life. That man is a fool God asking women to get up there now intellect abilities and skills but asking them to use their skills to merge into another calling.

She cannot use her skills for all individualistic calling anymore. She's got those skills, abilities, and guess that God has given her into now God's calling on that man.

That's the difference you don't get what you do virgin you are willing to place it under a new hierarchical system, and as you know, to make a long story short, Eve is created in verse 21 out of so Adam is only half the man he used to be because he loses one side so you have a man that told him to become a whole man he got to get his rib back, but his rib is not located in somebody else. He can't take the rib out of somebody else thought of putting himself in his rib back. You gotta take hold of somebody else to make that somebody else bought his life to get the ring back to get the ring back to the law didn't go get his rib bring back what you lost about it brings back something that you originally had something that you did not have. So that's why I've been thinking about what to say. One of you would be unnecessary that what you get when you marry what you put some of what you are not lady that also mean that if you understand your real you gotta understand the marriage relationship because what makes you you both of you to become all meant to be, usually red and ribs on the original rib in the first place. So is to bring together a plan of what you originally wanted that what you're really off to make you all I want you to be paid from the strays of your mate. You do not become all were created to be. Dr. Evans will tell us about a key part of the garden of Eden story. Most of us miss when he returns in a moment but first he shares this reflection about how God kept him going through some of life's difficult challenges. There were times when I was overwhelmed with the burdens of life or what I didn't know that I can keep going. Yet God would bring someone or something.

To speak words of encouragement to me during difficult times. Cost 2019 was one of those times when I lost my wife 40/49 years keep going during that season, one month after I lost my father, yet God provided that I needed to keep proclaiming his word. During those difficult things I'm very grateful 40 years seen this kind hand of fate on this ministry, especially when you consider the challenges and difficulties along the way. The expansion and growth. We've experienced here is nothing short of a miracle.

Dr. Tony recalls what happened when he led a group of first-timers on a trip to the holy people began to understand fresh diction.

That's one of things that I think comes out of going to suppress accounts so that things got stale as a way of injecting light yellow experience. Now you can have that experience yourself. Thanks to Tony's new movie coming out this November journey with Jesus. What I'm hoping is that this experience and I will be there with me. November 17 near you for fellowship and have to get sometimes and more if it Tony Gavin' Now back to our message here is Dr. Evans. So now all you know, marriage ceremony, so to speak.rib rotted Adam. Adam says notice verse 23. This is now. He doesn't say she is now. He says this is now meeting this new relationship, marriage. This is now.

This relationship is bone of my bone relationships//also mouth that she shall be called woman. Now he names her name in Hebrew. If each Hebrew word for woman shot so hard to be married. She takes his name okay so when she is created that she is that she got no sleep until she receives and that's why marriage is always a transfer of names from the woman's name last name to the man last name to God and to that includes part of her agenda, but is not only her gender anymore. Okay, so about away before she was married ladies. She was upset you.

One frustrated nobody bothers a God where the man know when she was when she was created.

All she knew was where God was. And so if you gotta wait for man you got in the way God if you don't know what you man if you don't know where God is.

You don't know where you because every woman was created to be with some mail Eva, a man of God, tell me, but God is never asked the woman to be without a male supervisor that is directly God. God's vice president man until God transfers you may die what you transferred. That's why the Bible says in first Timothy chapter 5 if you have a window just to do one of two things she have to seek married all commit ourselves to God because you must be on some male authority to achieve all of God's purposes for quantity again. So God hand over the breath you know within a marriage, who gives her way to be married in his first marriage. God said I did take another man male in that sense, sir, and said you may have her takes responsibility for her directly says this is now that all leave father and mother, father, mother, wife, because a woman transfers security. That's why I'm transferring security. Therefore, I must to someone who will at least give her as much security will done father mother because you not believe her father, mother, father, mother, that she peaceful okay so manfully father and mother become the new block of security you want to why making a new base for security and then they become one class in the back that they were both naked and were not ashamed. They were not make it because they were sinners they were not because they were children they were not because they were brand-new on the sea mean the Bible does not relate lack of close to the Bible says God, but he's perfect so save and close the fund's creation was concerned they were children they may have married Mary, but I decision still may about these two dreams goes back to the commandment tree tree and not wait till you decide. There is a great danger in delaying obedience because when God you don't do it harder to do it and what you do with what the New Testament calls create an opportunity for the devil campus when you don't obey your parents immediately use all wet because I'm tired today which put me. Because there is a promise that God will be the that could determine the rest of your life. God, what should he got better you sleep, you all by all and maybe father back that would know they would he let the woman run home man all you say would meet all the deafening devil in chapter 3, verse one slithered on up to E and said I like talk to like talk to you about trees, what have cultural discussion want to talk to you about what God told you about trees all on the trim good conversation somewhere day so we run running running all over verse where woman is running the family.

The Roman and pagan belief that all national they never got around the tree of life. Once probation was all about not biting the tree of life, they will put out because Adam you to run things like God wanted to run God comes walking and says Adam animal Seattle Adam where you mean he shall come look at the TV show the city well you shouldn't talk devil no no no no no no no when the family breakdown. The issue is always Adam.

Adam Adam, you chop the bar which you will be controlling your family.

Just like you shouldn't follow Adam Adam leaving the wrong Adam shouldn't barley Adam was supposed to say Eve you don't talk to another man about my family and I don't recall when we had the functions last night me and Mike the snake and get in a discussion of my business. This is my family and what is serpent got off the table only know what happened to my life get out. That's what it should say what he wanted one.

What we need today. The men want to take become the sin women are not met readily to give leadership back is tough talk to my God asked me if he was going to preach a sermon you will take the lead with these, when he was upset that women are like no man-made you jump flexing like a basketball game racing, I don't think you give me about all the hard work you better than you trying to line up all show that hard work work ladies when he took the lead.

What she should've said was gives me let me get my husband into this conversation where she basically said it was only no man talk myself. No man tell me what say what you should have told me what God what you find out this paradise lost. We want to get back.

Notice will take take the man got the guts to run their home according to their bosses, instructions, and Joe Paul Smith is God for the head of every man is Christ the lady is your mission now to rebuild something so totally different orientation life.
