00:01 Hello, my name is Frank Fournier
00:03 and I want to welcome you to Heaven's point of View.
00:07 We're studying the Parable of the Prodigal Son,
00:09 I'm grateful you're here.
00:10 I would like to invite you to get your Bible
00:12 come and join us; we're having a good time.
00:44 Welcome back.
00:45 We're studying the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
00:47 I would like to invite you to turn with me to Luke 15.
00:51 We're going to be looking at verse 21 now in Luke 15.
00:58 "And the son said to his father,"
01:00 this is after he comes home.
01:02 He says to his father, "I have sinned against heaven,
01:05 and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called your son."
01:12 So what's he doing here? Why he is confessing?
01:15 If you remember in our last study,
01:17 I said that there were three steps to salvation
01:19 in so far as the Prodigal son is concerned
01:21 the three C's to salvation.
01:23 Come to your senses,
01:25 come to your God and confess your sins.
01:28 Now friends, is God being reasonable here?
01:30 Is he asking too much?
01:32 Oh no, no there isn't anyone that cannot do this supposing
01:36 that they are paralyzed from the neck down
01:39 because all the action happens in the deep recesses
01:42 of your own personal heart.
01:44 God is not asking us to do penance,
01:47 he is not asking us to make a pilgrimage,
01:49 not to roam or to make,
01:51 he is not asking us to pay money,
01:52 he is not asking us to work hard.
01:55 Have you done it?
01:56 Oh, friends, I hope that you have done it.
02:00 And if you've done it, if you come to your senses,
02:02 come to your God and confessed your sins,
02:04 what do you know?
02:05 Well, look at verse 22,
02:07 we're in Luke Chapter 15 and verse 22.
02:11 "But the father said to his servants,"
02:13 which I think represents the angels.
02:15 "The father says to his servants,
02:18 bring forth the best robe and put it on him."
02:21 Now what does the best robe represent?
02:24 Why friends it represents
02:25 the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
02:29 The Prodigal son disrobed when he was confessing his sins,
02:32 he was taking off his filthy garments.
02:34 He was giving them to Jesus
02:36 and Jesus would go to the cross with his sins
02:39 and return and in return he gives him
02:43 his own righteousness,
02:44 the robe of Christ's righteousness.
02:46 What a plan that is,
02:47 what a blessing that is to all of us.
02:50 Now if I have you turn with me to 1 John 9.
02:54 We're looking at this, this concept of forgiveness now
03:00 and I'm sure you all understand this,
03:04 what I'm going to read.
03:05 1 John and this is Chapter 1 verse 9
03:09 I think I made a mistake while ago in saying
03:11 1 John Chapter 9 but no, it's 1 John 1:9.
03:16 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful in just
03:20 to forgive us ours sins,
03:22 and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
03:26 What a promise that is.
03:28 It's just so simple,
03:30 always not always easy to confess our sins.
03:32 I've had struggled sometimes
03:34 when I've done something against someone else
03:36 and I've had to go over there and humble my heart
03:39 and confess what I had done wrong.
03:41 That's not so easy.
03:43 But in the big scheme of things,
03:46 when you think of eternity
03:47 if this is all that God is asking for,
03:49 then don't you think we ought to do it.
03:52 Do you remember Martin Luther?
03:54 Did you know that Martin Luther was obsessed with salvation?
03:58 Oh, yes he was.
04:00 When Martin Luther was just a little boy,
04:02 he wanted to be saved
04:04 but his theology being just a little boy
04:07 and growing up in the Catholic Church,
04:09 I would say his theology was very logical
04:12 and he was a logical thinker and so his idea was,
04:17 that if sin is the problem
04:18 then all I have to do is get rid of sin
04:21 and I will have salvation.
04:22 Well, if you are of age at all,
04:24 you know how impossible that is,
04:26 it's true that sin is the problem
04:28 but trying to keep from sinning
04:31 when you have a sinful nature is one difficult chore.
04:34 And so Martin Luther tried and tried and tried
04:37 to quit sinning in order that he might be saved
04:40 but he could never do it, he just couldn't do it.
04:43 Well, he grew up to be a teenager
04:45 and as a teenager his father recognized
04:47 how intelligent this young man was.
04:49 He sent him to a university
04:51 so that he could become a lawyer.
04:53 Martin Luther had the ability,
04:54 he had the intelligence to be a lawyer.
04:57 But he had this obsession he still wanted to be saved.
05:01 One day he decided that he had solved the problem,
05:03 he knew what to do, so he threw a party,
05:06 he drew all his friends to this party,
05:08 gave away all his gifts and after the party
05:10 he made his way to the nearest monastery
05:13 and there he said to the people
05:15 while after he knocked on the door,
05:16 my name is Martin Luther and I'm here to become a Monk.
05:20 He thought he had solved the sin problem
05:22 because he felt these men in there,
05:24 these monks in those monasteries in there,
05:28 all they did was pray all day long
05:29 and if they prayed all day long then surely they would not sin.
05:34 But let me tell you something,
05:36 sin is not a matter of circumstance.
05:38 Sin is a matter of nature
05:40 and Martin Luther was born with a carnal nature
05:42 and even in a monastery he found himself sinning,
05:46 how frustrating that was.
05:48 So he began a regiment of flagellation,
05:51 he began fasting.
05:52 He entered upon a discipline--
05:55 a religious discipline which would've killed anyone.
05:57 And well, that's almost what happened,
05:59 Martin Luther became very, very sick in his early twenties
06:02 as the matter of fact he was on his sick bed.
06:06 Now an older monk heard--
06:07 was going on with Martin Luther
06:09 came from another monastery
06:10 just for the purpose of helping this young man.
06:13 He found Martin Luther in his little cell on a cot
06:17 and he went to visit him there and helped before his bed
06:19 or beside his bed and he said to Martin Luther,
06:22 would you recite the Lord's creed after me?
06:25 Martin Luther said, sure why not.
06:28 And so the older priest began to recite the Lords creed
06:31 and after he would say a phrase Martin Luther would repeat it,
06:35 he would say in other phrase,
06:36 Martin Luther would repeat it
06:37 until he came to the place where he said,
06:40 I believe in the forgiveness of my sins.
06:43 Martin Luther said, I believe in the forgiveness.
06:46 No, no, no, no I believe in the forgiveness of my sins.
06:50 Martin Luther said, I believe in the for, No.
06:52 I believe in the forgiveness of my sins
06:55 and he repeated it over and over
06:57 again with more and more emphasis.
06:59 I believe in the forgiveness of my sins
07:02 until the light went on in Martin Luther heads
07:05 now wait a minute,
07:06 if Jesus Christ went to the cross
07:08 with all the sins of the world
07:09 with all of my sins paid the full penalty
07:12 what in the world, should I not believe,
07:14 is it not my right, is it not even my duty
07:16 to believe on the forgiveness of my sins.
07:22 Do you know that that is true religion.
07:24 I can read it to you from the pen of Ellen White.
07:26 In 1888 materials this is what am reading
07:29 from page 4-- excuse me 948
07:32 it says "True religion, the only religion of the Bible
07:37 is believing in the forgiveness of sins,
07:40 the righteousness of Christ and the blood of the land."
07:45 Is that true? Is that what true religion is?
07:49 Well friends, it is true.
07:51 And it's that simple
07:53 and this is all that God is asking for.
07:55 God has through his son gone to the cross
07:58 and paid the full penalty.
08:00 And he asks us to come to our senses
08:02 about our relationship to Him.
08:03 He asks us to come to Him,
08:05 who alone can help us and he says
08:07 there confess your sins,
08:09 this robe, put away your filthy rags.
08:11 I will give you my robe of righteousness.
08:14 You will find your way into the kingdom of heaven
08:16 with my righteousness not your own.
08:19 And so this is what Martin Luther found
08:21 and you know that Martin Luther began a reformation
08:24 that turned the world upside down
08:26 and defeated one of the greatest churches
08:29 that this world has ever seen.
08:31 It's amazing but that's what it is.
08:33 Now there may be someone who would like to say but,
08:35 you don't know how sinful I'm.
08:37 Well friends, I don't have time today
08:39 but I could point you back to a king,
08:41 king David who at one point
08:44 decide by looking over his balcony
08:46 and seeing a lady there are taking a bath,
08:49 by the way her name was Beth Sheba,
08:52 I don't know how that happens.
08:53 In any case it did he had this lady come up,
08:56 I don't know what it says,
08:58 but finally a month or so later he received the letter saying,
09:01 I am pregnant and king David said
09:04 oh, bummer yeah and you know what he did,
09:08 he had her husband come
09:10 and finally he had her husband killed.
09:14 Yeah, how bad is that.
09:16 What kind of confession did king David give?
09:20 Do you know?
09:21 I would like to have you see this,
09:23 this is second Samuel Chapter 12,
09:25 go with me to 2 Samuel Chapter 12.
09:29 I want you to look at David's confession
09:32 in 2 Samuel Chapter 12.
09:37 By the way he had sent a prophet to help David, he really did.
09:42 The Prophet tell-- told the little parable
09:44 and David found himself with the back against the wall.
09:46 I wanted you to hear just the words
09:48 as they come from God.
09:49 This is verse 7 and verse 8.
09:53 "And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man."
09:57 Watch what God says now.
09:58 "Thus salth the Lord God of Israel,
10:00 I anointed thee king over Israel,
10:02 and I delivered you out of the hand of Saul,
10:05 I gave you your master's house
10:07 and you master's wives into your bosom,
10:09 I gave you the house of Israel in Judah
10:11 and if that had been too little,
10:14 I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things."
10:18 And this is what God is saying to the whole world.
10:20 Listen what do you want?
10:22 I will give it to you with my son
10:24 I shall freely give you all things, what do you want?
10:26 Only don't sin.
10:28 Don't go hurt another people, don't go dishonoring my name,
10:32 don't go disgracing yourself.
10:34 I can be a blessing to you, what do you want,
10:37 I will give it to you and I tell you what,
10:39 who had been given more than king David?
10:41 You know he came out of the, he was a hurt boy,
10:45 he was hurting sheep all his life
10:48 and now he was king and he had all of these things
10:51 and how much God had blessed him.
10:53 Now I want you to notice his confession.
10:55 We're looking at verse 13 now,
10:57 we're in 2 Samuel Chapter 12.
11:00 "And David said to Nathan,
11:02 I have sinned against the Lord."
11:03 Well, by the way that was his confession.
11:05 Six words "I have sinned against the Lord."
11:09 And do you know what Nathan said,
11:10 do you know what God said through Nathan?
11:13 "Unto David, the Lord also has put away your sins,
11:17 you will not die."
11:19 Isn't that amazing?
11:22 Yeah, six words that was his confession.
11:26 It's amazing, and God said you will not now die now.
11:30 Friends, it's not as if he didn't,
11:32 there were no consequences, let me tell you
11:34 because when Nathan gave a little parable to David,
11:38 David said that man in the parable,
11:40 he shall pay for fault.
11:42 And God said, that's good, that's good.
11:45 You know, you're pronouncing a sentence against yourself
11:48 and do you know the kind David lost four sons
11:50 because of the sin that he had committed.
11:52 So it was not without consequences,
11:55 but he was forgiven.
11:58 If we confess our sins,
12:00 He is faithful in just to forgive us our sins
12:02 and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
12:06 What a blessing this business of confession is.
12:09 Now I would like to have you turn with me
12:11 to John Chapter 8, turn with me to John Chapter 8.
12:17 We're going to find a real blessing here,
12:19 there's a story in the book of John Chapter 8
12:22 as a matter of fact there is a huge surprise in it
12:24 and even though even as I share with you
12:27 what I'm going to share, you might wonder at my theology.
12:31 Well, hold your tomatoes
12:33 because I hope to redeem myself before the thing is over.
12:36 So at the beginning it might sound a little weird
12:39 my theology that is, but by the time it's over,
12:43 I believe with all my heart,
12:44 I will have redeemed myself, okay.
12:48 In John Chapter 8, a group of Pharisees,
12:51 by the way this is a group of pastors.
12:54 They get together and they decide
12:55 they want to trap Jesus.
12:57 In order to trap Jesus,
12:59 they have to choose one among themselves
13:01 to commit adultery with a harlot.
13:03 Isn't that wonderful a group of pastors getting together
13:06 and choosing one to commit adultery?
13:08 Well, I don't know I hope our pastors today,
13:11 don't do such things
13:12 but somehow it didn't seem to be wrong to them at that time.
13:16 So they actually caught the man and the harlot in the very act.
13:21 If you look at verse 4, we are in John Chapter 8
13:24 we're looking at verse 4.
13:27 "They say unto him Master,
13:28 this woman was taken in adultery in the very act."
13:31 They had dragged this woman over to Jesus
13:34 and then they put her before Jesus
13:36 and they said to Jesus the Bible says,
13:38 that if a woman is caught in adultery
13:40 she should be stoned, what do you say?
13:42 And then they said, this woman,
13:44 she was caught in the very act of adultery,
13:47 what could He say.
13:50 Well, you know what He said,
13:52 do you remember what He said?
13:54 Do you know that they could not have trapped Him,
13:56 He could have gotten out of it on the technicality.
13:58 He could have said where is her husband?
14:01 Doesn't the Bible say that the husband is supposed
14:03 to bring his wife before the judge?
14:05 And where is the other man,
14:07 the one who committed adultery with her?
14:09 Doesn't the Bible say,
14:10 that the both should be brought to the judge?
14:12 And so by those technicalities He might of,
14:14 He might have gotten out of it.
14:16 How about friends, he didn't use the technicality,
14:18 you remember what He said?
14:20 He bent over and He began to write in the dust,
14:22 whether it was on marble floors
14:24 or whether it was in dust I don't know,
14:26 but He was writing in the dust,
14:27 then He stood up and He says,
14:29 those of you who have never commuted sin,
14:31 I want you to catch the first stone.
14:34 Well, what was He writing the dust?
14:36 Well, it's very easy to determine
14:38 what He was writing in the dust,
14:39 He was writing their sins because as we follow the test,
14:43 you find out that they left one after another
14:46 starting with the eldest the next eldest the next eldest
14:49 all the way down the line.
14:50 He knew their ages and He knew their sins
14:53 and that's what He was writing in the dust
14:54 and they became embarrassed by what they were reading
14:58 and so now we come to the part of the story
15:02 that I want to share with you.
15:05 You see the woman was still standing there
15:06 and here's what Jesus said to her, verse 10.
15:10 "When Jesus had lifted up Himself
15:12 and saw none but the woman,
15:14 He said to her, woman, where are your accusers?
15:17 Has no man condemned you?
15:19 She said, no man Lord.
15:20 And Jesus said to her,
15:22 neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more."
15:25 Now listen I have a problem here,
15:28 it's a theological problem.
15:30 How could Jesus say neither do I condemn thee,
15:32 the lady was caught in adultery,
15:34 in adultery wasn't she guilty?
15:37 Did she come there confessing her sins and repenting?
15:39 Well, you know there is no record of it in the text.
15:43 It may be that she had something in her heart
15:45 more than we understand.
15:46 But as far as we know this woman was dragged over there
15:49 and the only thing she expected was to be executed maybe.
15:53 And Jesus says to her, neither do I condemn thee.
15:58 How could he do that?
16:00 I mean how could he say that?
16:01 Do you know what the antonym of condemnation is?
16:05 Do you know that the antonym
16:06 of condemnation is, justification.
16:08 So that when Jesus was saying to this woman,
16:11 neither do I condemn thee, that was negative,
16:14 he was saying this in the negative.
16:15 Neither do I condemn thee,
16:17 do you know if he had said that in the positive,
16:19 he would have said I too justify you
16:23 because the opposite of condemnation is justification.
16:27 Actually, Jesus was giving her the gift of justification
16:32 and this woman had not come confessing
16:35 had not come repenting
16:37 and how are we supposed to relate to that.
16:40 How do you relate to that?
16:42 Well, I would like to help you with this little thing.
16:46 Let me ask you a question,
16:49 did that woman ask to born in this world?
16:52 What do you think?
16:53 If you had a choice between being born here in this world
16:56 and being born on the perfect world somewhere else,
16:59 which one would you choose?
17:00 But the problem is of course, we have no choice
17:02 this woman didn't asked to be born in this world.
17:05 So God, could God condemn her for being born here?
17:09 Why no, it's not her fault, no.
17:13 Did this woman ask to be born with the sinful nature?
17:17 If you had the choice
17:18 between a perfect nature and a sinful nature,
17:21 wouldn't you choose the perfect nature,
17:23 save yourself a whole pile of problems,
17:26 while sure but the woman didn't ask
17:28 to be born with the sinful nature.
17:30 So could God condemn her for having a sinful nature?
17:34 Why no, it wasn't her fault. But here is the punch.
17:40 What do people with sinful natures do?
17:43 Oh, they sin, is that right?
17:48 Well then can God condemn people for sinning?
17:50 Can I help you to see here
17:53 that God cannot condemn people for sinning?
17:56 That God doesn't condemn people for sinning.
17:59 Isn't that a weird theology?
18:01 How can I get away with something like that?
18:04 Well, like I said don't throw tomatoes
18:06 yet, I want you to see something
18:08 and I hope that you will understand.
18:11 Do you know that I've been to Madagascar
18:13 at least four times?
18:14 I want to tell you a story
18:15 that came out of from Madagascar.
18:17 Now I wasn't there when this story was taken place.
18:21 My business partner Kim Busso was there in Madagascar.
18:25 He had a group of Europeans with him.
18:27 And we have a project in Madagascar
18:29 and it's about an hour from the city of Tamatave.
18:33 So they had made their way to the city of Tamatave,
18:35 they were at the fruit vegetable market,
18:37 this is an outdoor market, it's mostly composed I think.
18:40 But anyways here they were in this vegetable market
18:44 they were buying fruit's and vegetables
18:46 and as they were doing this two little girls
18:48 were following them around with her hand out
18:51 they were begging of course, they were making as sad a face
18:54 as they could they were rubbing their bellies
18:57 trying to help them to see how hungry they were.
18:59 It didn't matter too much
19:00 that they were much fatter than we are.
19:02 Just the same, they were trying to show
19:04 that they were hungry.
19:05 And I know what Kim would do,
19:06 he would buy them each a hand of bananas
19:08 and he would give it to them.
19:09 They would go and stash their new found budy here
19:14 and then they would come back
19:15 and continue to follow these men around begging
19:18 for whatever it is that they might give.
19:20 Well, it just so happened that noon came around
19:23 and that noon the men decided that it was time to have lunch
19:26 but they went looking for a restaurant.
19:28 Do you know that in Madagascar at least in those days,
19:31 that's not so many years ago,
19:32 all the restaurants are closed that noon so that,
19:36 the workers in the restaurant can have lunch.
19:39 It's not exactly capitalism, is it?
19:42 But that's how it is there
19:44 and so they couldn't find a place to go for lunch.
19:47 Eventually a young man shows up
19:49 who drives a rickshaw and he says to the man,
19:53 listen I have been watching you
19:54 and I know that you're looking for a restaurant,
19:56 I know one restaurant here in Tamatave
19:59 that is open through lunch and I can bring you there.
20:02 And so they got other rickshaws to come
20:04 and to call the men to this restaurant
20:06 and they ate for one dollar all you can eat,
20:08 don't go in the kitchen everything will be fine.
20:10 You eat for one dollar, all you can eat.
20:12 And as they are going out the door,
20:15 there is a man standing there and the man says to them,
20:18 now that you satisfied your hunger,
20:20 wouldn't you like to satisfy your lusts?
20:24 Now there is no doubt in my mind
20:25 that these men looked at him
20:27 and dismissed him out of hand like, out of our lives.
20:30 We don't need anything like this, you're out of here.
20:32 Oh, no, no he says
20:33 you don't understand, you don't understand,
20:35 these girls are young they are clean.
20:37 Eight, nine years old, seven years old,
20:39 what do you want? We've got it for you.
20:41 Now there is no doubt, that he was dismissed
20:44 with end of a boot probably at this point.
20:47 Now to her to hear Kim tell the story
20:50 after they had return to the institution
20:52 that we have there.
20:53 He says that when he went to sleep at night
20:56 when he went to bed at night, every time he closed his eyes,
21:00 all that he could see was that two little girls begging.
21:06 Question for you, is it their fault
21:09 that they were born on the Island of Madagascar.
21:12 Would you condemn them for that,
21:13 why no, I mean we're born,
21:15 where we're born it's not our fault.
21:17 Was it there fault that they were born
21:18 in the city of Tamatave wouldn't it have been better
21:21 if they had been born in the country.
21:23 Well, perhaps, perhaps not. Who knows?
21:26 If they get dragged into a prostitution ring
21:28 at the age of seven and eight and nine years old,
21:31 would you condemned them,
21:33 if you would catch them in the very act?
21:36 Why no?
21:37 No little girl at that age wants to be involved
21:40 in anything as gross as this.
21:42 There is no doubt in my mind,
21:44 if we would catch them in the very act
21:45 there's not one of us that would condemn them for being caught.
21:50 Well, friends listen,
21:54 are we not born in the world of sin?
21:57 Are we not born with sinful natures?
22:00 Do you think it's our fault
22:01 that we are in this situation that we are in.
22:03 Oh, we have choices to make
22:05 and we make the wrong choices
22:06 and we can suffer for it and all of that.
22:10 No, friends that is not the condemnation of God.
22:16 And it doesn't receive the condemnation of God.
22:20 Can I show you
22:22 where the condemnation really is?
22:24 If you'll turn with me
22:25 and I want you to turn with me in your Bibles,
22:27 you need to see what the Bible says.
22:30 Go to John chapter 3, John chapter 3.
22:34 This is the chapter where Jesus says,
22:37 God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son.
22:41 Now I want to look at verse 17,
22:46 verse 17 in John chapter 3.
22:53 "For God sent not his Son into the world"
22:57 to condemn the world, why not?
23:00 Well, friends it isn't our fault
23:03 that we're in the mess we are in.
23:04 "God sent not his Son into the world
23:08 to condemn the world,
23:09 but that the world through him might be saved."
23:13 Now watch, look at verse 19 now
23:17 and this is the condemnation.
23:20 Jesus is about to put his finger on the problem.
23:24 "This is the condemnation
23:25 that light is come into the world
23:28 and men loved darkness rather than light
23:31 because their deeds were evil."
23:33 If an individual was sick,
23:36 would you condemn that individual for being sick?
23:39 Why no, we don't condemn people for being sick,
23:41 we don't know what went on, why there are sick?
23:45 But supposing that individual refuses to take the medicine,
23:50 then whose faults is it?
23:52 Then we know, then it's his fault.
23:54 This is the condemnation you have a remedy for him
23:57 and he will not take the remedy.
24:02 Do you know that we are sin sick?
24:06 Do you that God has a remedy for the sin problem?
24:09 Do you know that God so loved the world,
24:11 he gave his son the light of the world.
24:14 What does it says here? This is the condemnation.
24:18 That God sent the remedy to this world.
24:21 But men prefer to be sick rather than to be healthy.
24:25 God sent Jesus, what do you do with Jesus?
24:30 God sent the word of God,
24:31 how do you relate to the word of God?
24:34 Do you see it? Can you understand it?
24:37 this is the condemnation
24:39 when God sends us the word from angels
24:42 or however he sends it then he says
24:44 this is the way that I want to walk in this world
24:46 and we say no way, we want to walk our way,
24:49 we want to do what we want to do.
24:51 Who is Jesus anyway?
24:53 We don't believe in organized religion,
24:54 we don't believe in whatever whatever.
24:56 Friends this is the condemnation
25:01 that God sent light into this world
25:03 and men prefer darkness rather than light.
25:07 Now I have another question for you.
25:10 How do you relate to people who do bad things?
25:14 How do you relate to people who do bad things to you?
25:18 Do you relate as Jesus did?
25:20 I have a quotation here, this is gospel workers 373.
25:25 The lord wants his people to follow other methods
25:28 than that of condemning wrong,
25:30 even though the condemnation is just.
25:33 Now why would you do that?
25:35 We can see people doing wrong things and God says no,
25:40 if you want to win them?
25:42 Do approach these people with something
25:45 other than condemnation
25:46 because condemnation does not work.
25:50 Can you see it?
25:52 Condemnation does not work.
25:54 Another quotation, this is volume 5
25:57 of the Testimonies 345 paragraph 2.
26:00 We are not to condemn others,
26:03 this is not our work
26:05 but we should love one and another
26:07 and pray for one another.
26:10 There you are, that's our work,
26:12 we are in the business of reconciling people to God
26:16 and it doesn't work if you use condemnation.
