What we think what the folks we know for Dr. Tony Evans shoes we pollute God's word with our ideas and traditions on God. You celebrating 40 years of faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Abbott, author, 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 talks 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 that do not belong to either of the other two things they belong to the league office.

The kingdom on Park Avenue new sets the rules about how things not 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 character job is not to join your team, because they independent of both teams went official operates by his own rules, he loses his authority because his hourly is only realized when he is raving.

According to league standards to ensure that unofficial football field is operating with the legal standard given a book to study that will memorize that book utilize that book decision he makes on the field 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 bow of the support.

I believe because of the football game gets to rule in the book agrees with this agrees with the decision overruled by the commission because it is time to reflect the commission off 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 be officials on the field there 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 decisions. 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 were not saved in the kingdom.

This dance from the king that we rent now book and officials) 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 and he is to be the final court of appeal on all matters that he agrees to and he agreed to heal the kingdom. Gender is the visible manifestation of a copy of the rule of God over all of my why do you need to know this. You need to know this because your experience of the kingdom of hourly is tied to its connection to the book from a connection to the you lose me of the kingdom and the benefits of the king. In other words, many of God's children on their own because last time the book, not knowing that the same time 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 keep my company you operate under my governance shall be my own possession among all the people is mine 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 to be the average ordinary you going to be in a class by yourself. If you operate my covering. You will not be my kingdom.

Why authority why our individual's being controlled by everything but God. Why is family immigration being caused so that families are falling apart. Wow is our charge or charges. God's covenants and for the individual to 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 by means of his word, his word.

Let's get this straight.

The 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 don't quit.

There is the voice of God in print the word… Not merely words about God as though God were physically is written it down, the Bible claims the following Jesus put it this way. He says in John 1034 and the word of God cannot be broken. Be cannot be a no cancel or may void how you view the Bible and how you respond to the Bible will determine your authority 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 birthday sets 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 I've 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..

It is already been in your account. Everything God is for you with you every blessing you receive the life on earth.

God is deposited, but you have to get Revelation 22 makes it even stronger by Williams with this model is probably 22 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 the take away from the book they just skip implement the book but with the implementation of the book comes watch what he says in verse five of Deuteronomy 4, I have 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 People's war heal all the statutes word and say sure this great nation is a wise and understanding people for what nation is there God solely up to it as the Lord our God. We call this 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 that will be no response because Christians have left word not yet christened around the word of God, but 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 says the 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 to serve the nation should see that you are you make 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 Dr. adventures kingdom believers sometimes wondered being unique people in ways that don't seem to make sense. More on that when he continues her message in a moment but first I want to let you know that the message your hearing today as part of our year-end audio compilation called the best of Tony Evans 2021.

Again, that's 1-800-800-3222 right now Dr. Evans is back with more of today's message less joint. Let me explain something 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 and natural thoughts 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 some when God comes up with the expectation it will make Joshua. Joshua will Jericho walk around wall once a day think they want to sell the day spray. Now that's weird.

You will get a military Academy strategic meeting in general we going to defeat Jericho walking around wall. We got this thing last I checked the walls came tumbling down because my weight is not your way there a lot of things that God is going to say to you that question is does he know enough and has he been around enough. Have you been doing this long enough to know what he 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. Bob was right, and we will leave much of the Bible. I don't understand I got I got to versus you do understand versus number 2.2 your sick you go to the doctor you say say that stomach doctor examines you and he says okay you write a prescription try to read you understand you understand it probably can't even read it stop you from going to the pharmacist stopping Manning to the pharmacist stop you from taking it even though you don't understand, you 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 to swallow with.

We believe what we could not understand because of account of the personal gain because you trust. You take up you didn't understand, and you know because you all not working as well was so sick when I 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 one authority. Authority means the ability to.

You cannot write what you believe to be true.

We go around.

I know my truth and the truth 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 set you free.

Not what you believe to be true because of what you believe to be true is it true that you have false belief even though you really pleaded all Scripture is God's correction and instruction in righteousness.

Scripture gives you the truth is all true but unless you also know you will not know you were being ruled by people will station the kingdom. God wants to expand by which we measure so we close with this verse. First, the saloons 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 an alcohol enough to make sure you stick with the book because the Bible is to be the standard decision-making. Dr. Evans will come back in a moment to wrap up today's program with a final comment first so the lesson you been hearing today is part of Tony's new audio compilation the best of Tony Evans, 20, 21, as I mentioned earlier, this giant collection is available for a limited time is our gift when you help support Tony's ministry with a generous year-end contribution.

Again, that's 1-800-800-3222 Tony will return to close today's message in just a moment. As we prepared to step into a new year ministry the mission of the urban alternative has not changed and no matter what, 20, 22 brings Dr. Evans in the urban alternative want to be here for you and others to continue to spread God's life transforming word today with the hearing Hearing challenging help and continued this very important mission cannot turn Evans out one ticket today that you know restoring furniture involves stripping away any old paint or varnish to reveal all the scratches, gouges, imperfections in the peace and only when the original veneer has been removed and the restorer completely give new life to that old furniture tomorrow. 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 wasn't the only girl baseball league umpire big strapping guy.
