Welcome to worship in word with Pastor Robert Morris Pastor Robert theories amazing Grace and today he concludes this series of the message about our amazing Savior. I'm your host Jenae and I'm here with cohost Patrick for guys, well earlier in the series.

Pastor Robert talked about how amazing salvation, but this message is a little bit different. It's about our need for a Savior.

And this is such a great message Pastor Robert uses examples from the Old Testament to explain his points and has a couple of eye-opening illustrations are absolutely you know I love when Pastor Robert uses Old Testament examples in Scripture to explain New Testament.

Yes, it really gives you an idea of the unity and completeness of God's work through Pastor Robert teaching. I definitely see the Bible as a more complete unit everything in it from Genesis to Revelation points you.

I need for a Savior and God's love and grace giving us Jesus absolutely you know I'm looking forward to getting into the final message of this amazing grace series. So let's dive the title of this message is amazing Savior. Amazing Savior. I was praying and asking the Lord how you want to live in the series and I'm not sure whether people understand how great our Savior is and how much we needed saving and how much we still need saving and how wonderful the Savior is when you do about amazing Grace. It's because we have an amazing Savior.

The limited illustration before we get the word what what if you were drowning and someone you know how to swim and someone saved you and your now standing on the shore route of the water.

Your safe got a blanket around you been saved, you were drowning you are. You thought your life was ending.

Would you be happy sure you would want to give you a little more to help us understand how happy we should be.

What if this Savior said I want you to understand to you never have to fear drowning again because I will never leave you. I will never forsake you. I will wait I will be with you every moment of every day for the rest of your life without Mikey happy as well say the problem is that some of us learn to swim in the fight. Well, we probably would leave the Savior now know the problem that is just you don't understand how great your sin really is. It's like the ocean. We drop you off in the middle of the ocean don't care how well you swim and what you need Savior say we have a Savior we saved again because at some point in this message are going to catch this. We have a Savior reason were happy is because we have a Savior.

And if you don't know what you need saving that your marriage you could simply ask your spouse how much you need saving but you still need saving. To this day we have this wonderful Savior. So before we get to Joshua five show you just a few other scriptures that actually time to this season as well about Jesus being our Savior Lieut. verse 11 for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Matthew 121 and she will bring forth a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their students a reason he's called. That's because you Savior Jesus is is the Greek word for Yeshua, but it means Savior minor fact also show it to you straight out of the loan, not a Greek lexicon.

Jesus is the Greek transliteration for the Hebrew name Joshua and anyone Joshua is the English way we would say yes you will, but it now I don't want to burst your bubble, but just so you know Jesus was never called Jesus when he was on this earth. It's a great that's a great night he wasn't called Jesus about the 17th century. By the way minute since I could just let the air out of the room.

I'm sorry it was called yes you right that's his fever but it's okay that his adopted family calls me Jesus because they tried to say was I just you.

I can see you showcase a Jesus that all right, Jesus. Jesus means in the Greek it means Savior Yeshua in Hebrew means God is salvation and we say it, Joshua. That's the way we would save in English. My oldest son's name is Joshua. There were two prominent Joshua was in the Old Testament. One was the captain of Israel who led them into the promised land. The other and that's Joshua five the other and Zachariah was the high priest not get this, who led them back into the promised land. After they been in Babylonian captivity. 70 years. And God decides to name his son Yeshua and their true prominent will. One leads him in the promised land and one leads him back in the promised land. After they blown I hope your saving grace here because you've blown it again. If you're married, ask your spouse if you can't remember when you blew it. Especially if you're the man. You can ask her if she can actually give you dates and times so let me show you. From these two Old Testament Josh was what the New Testament Joshua does all right here two things. Number one he saves us from the dominion of sin. He saves us from the dominion, the power, the authority, the rulership of sin. Now when I said Joshua and their two prominent will test that you probably thought the first Moses six the second successor what you might not know where this is said his mother never called him Joshua. His mother didn't name him Joshua went on a show to you will get the job for five in the minute my wife Georgia numbers 13 verse 16 says these are the names of the man who Joshua McCormick mows this when Moses sent to spy out the land and Moses called Yoshida, the son of non-Joshua. Now it's a little easier in the in the old King James like you have reads even better. It says and Moses called Yoshida are all Shula, the son of nun John Yehoshua, Joshua others he was name Joshua which means salvation mows this adds to JE to it which is short for Jehovah. Many Hebrew words did that and here's what it means now God is salvation is. This is one of relief because God gave the law through Moses and yet Moses said but that's not enough though I were to get there is that God is our salvation.

So his name was Joe Joshua. Anything will have any recall Joshua what you say it fast a few times you figured out Joshua Joshua Joshua Joshua Joshua Joshua and maybe his mother did actually call that. And that's how I got because she just say Joshua getting there.

I don't know but he's Moses the successor.

And what did Moses give us all.

John 117 says for the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ and just Jesus Christ here would be Yeshua, Sheila, Yeshua the Messiah.

By the way, this word but it is not in the original language or just so you know, because it's such a contrast, almost like the laws back, but it's not there. Basically it's two statements great. The law came through Moses. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ lets us with some laws on that.

Why because the law leads us to God's salvation is with a lot of us. Paul tells us. I don't know the law is not bad it leads us to God's salvation leads us to issue, save now so let me show you in Joshua chapter 5 here, something really amazingly the earthly Joshua met the heavenly Joshua. Joshua met Yeshua what watches Joshua five Ursula 13 and it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold a man M by the way, because it's referring to Jesus a man stood opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand and Joshua went to him now if this is been made would've said and Robert went the other way, which Khosla went to him and he said to him that this is a great question argue for us or for our adversaries.

So I said no but as commander of the Army of the Lord.

I am now come and Joshua fell on his face, and earth and worship, and said to him what does my Lord say to his servant than the commander of the Lord's army, said Joshua. Take your sandal off your foot for the place where you stand is holy. Joshua did so, by the way, what makes a holy as God's there.

What made the land without the ground with a burning bush was holy because God's there. That's what makes our services. Holy because the presence of God is are okay, but I love Jesus's answer and somehow we just read over it because we missed the first work Joshua said are you for us, offer them Jesus said no, no, I remember a while back I got a telephone call at home and learned that no call list, but every now and then you know telemarketer gets very and this person was very excited and shared with me that I won a free cruise and and and have but in order to upgrade my room. It was only $300 per person for the free cruise and then the person said this. Would you like to put that on MasterCard or Visa know my answer was no. That's what happens if what what what you for us are for them is what he said no you said another way is to Joshua and income take sides came to take over and I'm not here to get on your side. I'm here to get you on the winning side, which is my side and Joshua takes his shoes off, and I want people realize what this means.

In other words, he gave up his right. I know I have the right to know I'm next in line, but I'm going to give up my right wrist. Okay listen. I this is so important for us to understand the way CN does not have dominion over you as you take your shoes off to the commander of the Lord's army. That's the way you submit to him as the king of your life and in his grace. The problem is that many of us put our shoes back on and start believing we can do it on her own. We know we need a Savior.

When someone shares the gospel with us for that first or second or third time and we finally comprehend what we think. Finally, the Savior, but 10, 20 years later, 30 after we've grown, we've taken classes now actually teach the classes we might not think we need a Savior as much. I'm just wondering. Think about the father sitting here Jesus here in your here and the father says to Jesus, tell me again how you say Robert and I'd say well I'll tell you we tell you about all that I've done, but I don't follow me know I'm I'm here because the Savior St. Mary are okay you would like just tuning in here listening to worship and where Ceramic mice today. Pastor Robert is concluding his amazing grace, even if the earlier messages and financing. Many other messages note Ginny. I did not know about Joshua. In Jesus name that Jesus is the Greek name for Yeshua, which is Hebrew for English name Joshua really offer some cool insight into some Old Testament Joshua is and how their lives and purpose were similar to that Jesus was great to learn no I also love the insight from Joshua's conversation with Jesus about how Jesus didn't come to take sides came to take and when Joshua needed to remove his shoes basically giving up his rights and Pastor Robert hit home when he said that we need to collect my right to submit to only that admission including rank African freehand from the dominion and thing you know he's warning to us was so clear to not be tempted to put your shoes back on, no matter how long you been a Christian or have fully forgiven delivery. You still seem like it's in the very near.

Even if we think were good to go.

We have to remember that no one is perfect. Maybe down a little, defeating the more I think about it more. If the foundation does it come from being perfect comes from believing the perfect one that's with this there's more. Pastor Robert have to say about why were you thinking let's campaign one more time actually saves us from the domain of seniors number two. He saves us from the guilt of sin okay now. Zechariah 3. If you there. Zechariah chapter 3 verse one it says. Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord.

Now most of you have been here for a while in your familiar biblical language when it refers to the angel of the Lord in the Old Testament is referring to Jesus, the angel Lord visited Abraham and Sarah and said at this time next year I will return to you and you have a child Jesus. We know that you can start that yourself and and see it. The angel of the Lord, Joshua the high priest standing before Joshua the high priest, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose or notice Satan is always there to accuse the brethren and the Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke you site that's good news right there.

The Lord has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you.

Is this not referring now to Joshua, a brand plucked from the fire.

Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments.

Please see the. The wonderful picture of salvation here it so clear and was standing before the angel answered and spoke those who stood before him, saying, take away the filthy garments from him.

Take away notice I just take off but take them away and to him. He said see he's explaining what he's just done. I have removed your iniquity from you and I will close you with rich robes and Isaiah 6110 tells us those roads are robes of righteousness right standing with God. I'll remove your iniquity and I'll call you with my righteousness. If you look on down to verse nine. I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day and Psalm 103 12. As far as the east is from the West. So far as he removed our transgressions from us that this is grace this what our high priestess.

He removes our filthy rags. Even our righteousness is as filthy rags.

He removes our CN are iniquity. I removed your iniquity, says Arthur I removed your iniquity. Now I was reading through your years, probably 10 or 12 years ago I was babbling through still church is growing is battling through a lot of guilt and shame because of my past and I was reading through Romans and another version. It says in that version, he has declared us not guilty. He has declared us not guilty and without realizing it, I can went like this and just, known in the Lord said me, what, when, when, what is that like that. As I said, Lord, I saw Lord I know that you declared me not righteous. I mean I'm not guilty. I know you declared me not guilty and I appreciate that I do thank you for that and I know you declared me not guilty but you and I know the truth. Let's listen by menu.

You and I know I really am guilty but you declared me not guilty and I appreciate that, but I know I really am guilty and it was as if I had angered him that I had consulted him and he very forcefully in my spirit not allowed better in my spirit.

He said to me, I am not unjust, strong, and he said, and I am not a liar. So Lord I didn't call you a lot.

He said yes you did. You just said that I said something that's not true.

You said I had declared you not guilty what you really are guilty and he said you need understand something I couldn't do that. I couldn't say you are not guilty unless you were not guilty and it was so strong in my spirit.*Lord, I don't understand this thing because I know I am guilty how to how would you declare me not guilty.

He said you still don't get it do you said I removed your CM I removed your sin. I took her sin off of you and he said here's the reason that I declared you not guilty is because I took your CM all of it off of you and I put it on my son and I declared him guilty and he died in your place. And when I look at you.

I don't see sin because I have removed it and so I can legally and justly declare you not guilty you're not guilty so we have to understand that that's what braces are amazing Savior took our iniquity. When my favorite scriptures may not be a favorite for you, but is Hebrews 725 it says therefore he is also able to watch this to save to the uttermost those who come to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. He is able to save to the outer most now I want you to think for a moment about these two Joshua's one leaves the peopling of the promised land. The other leads the people back in the promised land. After they fallen. I just I just want you to help that your Savior is able to lead you back, even when you mess up. That's good. He is, I have another friend that went to college with building with me and he became a pastor when in the ministry like Bill and I did and then he'd come out of a pretty bad life and live in in the ministry. He he succumb to pressure and he began drinking again and eventually went back to drugs losses marriage losses family losses ministry and for about 20 years I lived a very immoral life.

A few years back, but he said to someone, I'd like to talk to Robert again. I might just catch up with incisor, but he had no intention of coming back.hate what he, by the way what he does is he makes movies and Hollywood 40 does not. So he lost his law.

He lost everything, not walking with God's a few years ago. He I get in touch with women.

He says I will be in Dallas isolate, skip, togetherness and hate. Would you come to church with me and he easily tells me like this. Yeah I and later told me is that I really thought it Bishop is. I thought how could a church that large be for real. Just to show ago but you know what happened when you got your one show the presence of God touched.

He repented came back to the Lord this Thursday.

This just just a few days ago I talked to him. He said I been sober. 9 1/2 years now and this fall he preached for the first time again in a church because the same Nashua that saves us is the same Nashua Lichtenberg is back even wonderful Savior. He's an amazing what a story, and what a message it truly is amazing how God can lead us back into the promised land.

Even after we filing and no matter how many times we filing absolutely no I'd like to mention something that Pastor Robert said earlier that God is able to save to the utter. I recently looked at that word and I found out that in the Greek it means unlimited duration of time for ever and always. And I think knowing this definition brings even more weight to God's grace in savings for anyone listening. We encourage you to take a moment to think about my pastor ever shared and really listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to you. Today's message concluded this amazing grace series.
