0:22The holy Gospel
0:29According to Saint Matthew the fourth chapter [Music]
0:36when Jesus heard that John the Baptist had been arrested he withdrew into Galilee and leaving Nazareth he went and
0:43lived in Capernaum by the sea in the territory of zebulun and afterli so that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah
0:50might be fulfilled the land of zebulun and the land of naphtalib the way of the
0:55sea beyond the Jordan Galilee of the Gentiles the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light and for those
1:02dwelling in the region and the shadow of death on them light has dawned from that
1:07time Jesus began to preach saying repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand
1:13while walking by the Sea of Galilee he saw two brothers Simon who was called Peter and Andrew his brother casting a
1:20net into the sea for they were fishermen and he said to them follow me and I will make you Fishers of Men immediately they
1:27left their Nets and followed him and going on from there he saw two other brothers James the son of Zebedee and
1:33John his brother in the boat was Zebedee their father mending their Nets and he called them and immediately they left
1:39the boat and their father and followed him and he went throughout all of Galilee teaching in their synagogues and
1:45proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every Affliction among the people so his Fame
1:52spread throughout all of Syria and they brought him all the sick those Afflicted with various diseases and pains and
1:59those oppressed by demons epileptics and paralytics and he healed them and the
2:05great and great crowds fall followed him From Galilee and the decapolis and from Jerusalem and Judea and from Beyond the
2:11Jordan This Is The Gospel of the Lord in the name of Jesus
2:17we just sang this hymn O Christ our true and only light and in stanza too it says
2:24this fill with the radiance of your grace the souls now lost in errors maze
2:30Enlighten those whose inmost Minds some dark delusion haunts and blinds and it’s
2:39it’s a weird occasion for me I I don’t normally do sermons like this but the
2:45reality is is that in our gospel text today we have a portion of Our Gospel
2:50text that is probably one of the most Twisted Bible passages in our current day I’ll explain it as we go think of it
2:57this way are any of you familiar with something called Sherman’s bow ties you guys familiar with Sherman’s bow ties
3:03then what is that right you got to think Civil War here remember General Sherman
3:09and his March to the Sea those of you in the South I know you call it the war of Northern aggression I get it okay I have
3:16relatives from the south and I when I was a kid when I would say stupid things my aunts would say oh blessed is hard
3:21right I get it okay but all of that being said Sherman’s bow ties when um
3:26Sherman Cut Loose from a supply line inside he was going to live off the land he led
3:32his soldiers engage in all kinds of Mayhem if you would and they waged war against the civilians of the south in
3:38that March to the Sea and one of the things they did is they would take railroad tracks basically long pieces of
3:45iron and they would warm those things up and fire and then bend them into bow
3:51ties and leave them in different places basically completely tearing up their
3:56travel into infrastructure and I would note that this portion of scripture the last part of our gospel text in today’s
4:04charismatic Nar and Pentecostal movements it is one of these texts they’ve taken it and twisted it up a lot
4:11like a Sherman bow tie and what we’re going to have to do is we’re going to have to unwind that and the reason why
4:17I’m having you guys consider this twisting of scripture is because believe it or not most of you know people who
4:24believe in falsely regarding this text and as a result of it they are law lost in errors Maze and it’s all sounds so
4:32Pious when in fact it is not but before we get to that let’s walk our way
4:37through our gospel text so we can know the context here’s what it says beginning at verse 12 of chapter 4 when
4:44Jesus heard that John the Baptist had been arrested he withdrew into Galilee Jesus at this
4:51point he had been living in Nazareth and apparently he’d made the trip sign the papers bought a house or maybe got an
4:57apartment we’re not exactly sure what the arrangement was whether he owned or rented in Capernaum but he definitely
5:03had a house there and they didn’t have U-Haul back in the day so I’m sure they had to he had to get a cart to carry
5:09what few belongings he had and travel from Nazareth to Capernaum to set up
5:14shop there and all of this fulfills what was said through the prophet Isaiah which we read in our Old Testament text
5:21zabulous Zebulon and naftali the land of Zebulon and after the way of the sea
5:26beyond the Jordan Galilee of the Gentiles the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light and for those
5:32dwelling in the region of the shadow of death on them a light has dawned think of it this way zebulun and naphtally
5:39were two of the Old Testament tribes of Israel and they were the first to go
5:44into full hog idolatry just absolutely they didn’t go into
5:50syncretism they went into the full worship of all and Ashira and Molech and all this nonsense they were the ones who
5:57led Israel astray and as a result of it they’re remembered for that and their region became polluted if you would note
6:05the scripture describes that region as Galilee of the Gentiles Gentiles are not
6:11Believers in God believer the Gentiles are the people who are pagans and idolaters and it’s into this darkness
6:19that Christ has decided to set up shop and begin his Earthly Ministry after his
6:25baptism I like to think of it this way of all the places that he could have chose this was the least likely place
6:31that he would have ever succeeded um in New York in and part of New York State uh the the region there’s a region
6:39called the burned over district and it’s called that because you can’t plant a church there and have it survive that
6:47hasn’t been a that hasn’t happened since Charles Finney and the reason why it’s called the burned over district is
6:53because that’s the place where Charles Finney and his false new measures and his false revivalism took root and
7:01basically burned everything over and now it’s like it’s like soil that’s been
7:07salted nothing grows there spiritually you don’t plant a church in the burned over District think of Zebulon naftali
7:14Galilee of the Gentiles this is the burned over District of Christ’s day and he doesn’t set up shop in the easiest
7:21place to set up shop he sets up sets up shop in the hardest in the darkest place
7:27and you’re going to note here then verse 17. I’ll reference this again later in the sermon from that that time Jesus
7:34began to preach saying and listen to his message repent for the Kingdom of Heaven
7:40is at hand and the way the Greek reads from that time Jesus began to preach saying think of it this way you could
7:47literally translate it from that time and then from that time on Jesus continued to preach repent for the
7:54Kingdom of Heaven is at hand note that just like John the Baptist just like the
7:59Old Testament prophets just like the apostles after Jesus Jesus was a
8:05preacher of repentance you’ll note that Jesus didn’t come and say I’m here to announce just how much you are just the
8:13apple of God’s eyes you guys are so awesome I’m here to dig out the gold
8:18that’s inside of your heart right and if you know what I’m referencing here that’s the approach of Bethel Church in
8:25Reading California they don’t confront people regarding their sins makes you wonder if they even believe what the
8:31scripture says that we are all born dead and trespasses and sins Christ knowing
8:36full well that we are born dead and trespasses and sins his message is a message of repentance
8:43and if you think that you don’t need to hear that message you are woefully wrong
8:49or that your pastor shouldn’t be preaching repentance you don’t know what you’re talking about this is the message
8:54of the scriptures and then from there we learn that Jesus then calls his
9:00disciples and if you want to get the Fuller details you’ll note that Matthew’s account here verses 18 through
9:0622 is very highly condensed if you want to get the entire account read the
9:13Gospel of Luke Luke gives the entire account of how that all went down and
9:18when you look at the two together you see that they dovetail each other perfectly well now here we get then to
9:25the text where it gets twisted Jesus went throughout all Galilee teaching in their synagogues and
9:31proclaiming the gospel of the Kingdom if you were to travel to Bethel Church in Reading California or you were to
9:39visit churches in the local area that are under the influence of this heretical church which is basically a
9:45cult they would tell you that Jesus’s message was the Gospel of the kingdom and when you ask him what is the gospel
9:53of the Kingdom they will say performing signs and wonders and doing Miracles and
9:58following the example of Jesus and Healing The Sick and giving sight to the
10:04Blind and hearing to the deaf here’s the the sneaky little secret
10:09though that’s not the gospel of the kingdom and those today who are claiming that they are performing signs and
10:15wonders they aren’t have you ever seen their grand miracle that they perform the leg lengthening
10:22trick okay and that’s exactly what it is it’s a parlor trick and yet in these
10:29churches that is held up as a great example of God acting in a miraculous way well if you believe that leg
10:36lengthening is a miracle then listen I got one for you watch this
10:45foreign isn’t that great that’s the same quality of miracle that
10:50we’re talking about here and so you’re going to note they miss something when they read this text
10:57proclaiming the gospel of the Kingdom then they say the gospel of the Kingdom
11:02then is healing every disease every Affliction among the people and Healing The Sick and those Afflicted with demons
11:09and things like that that is not the gospel of the kingdom and Martin Luther long long ago said this that if you err
11:17regarding grammar you will necessarily err regarding Theology and they miss a
11:23very important word and the word is Kai in the Greek and it’s and in the English
11:29he was proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom and Healing The Sick the gospel of the
11:37kingdom is not this idea that we need to go out and heal the sick and do these Miracles that Jesus did in fact none of
11:45us can do the Miracles that Jesus did now you might be saying but wait a second didn’t Jesus say that if you
11:54believe in him that Greater Works than he did you will be able to do didn’t
12:00Jesus say that the answer is absolutely Jesus said that but he wasn’t talking
12:05about performing Miracles let me give you the text in question here the text in question is from the Gospel of John
12:12chapter 14 and here’s what it says starting at verse 12. truly truly I say
12:18to you whoever believes in me will all will also do the works that I do and
12:24greater Works than these will he do because I am going to the father now note it doesn’t say greater
12:32signs it says Greater Works in fact if
12:37you want a good cross reference on this in the Gospel of John chapter 20 starting at verse 30 it says this now
12:45Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples which are not written in this book but these these
12:52what these signs are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ the son of God and that by believing you
12:59might have life in his name and I would note this the Greek word say Mayon is
13:04not a synonym for Aragon say Mayon is the Greek word for signs Aragon is the
13:12Greek word for work so note Jesus says whoever believes in
13:17me will also do the works that I do and greater Works than these will he do
13:22Jesus isn’t saying you’re going to perform greater signs it’s absolutely false he says you will
13:28perform Greater Works and here’s where if you just take a look at what’s going on you’ll see exactly what Jesus meant
13:36Jesus’s Earthly Ministry lasted how long three years right at the end of his
13:44ministry at the time of his death his burial his resurrection at that time how
13:51many Believers were there a hundred 120 ish right
13:59not that many so Jesus his work on Earth as far as
14:04Ministry work goes I mean it was it was good but it wasn’t like
14:11quantitatively out there right when the Apostle Paul
14:17was converted to Christianity and began going and on his missionary Journeys and
14:23planting churches at the end of his life how many people were now Christians as a
14:28result of his ministry a larger greater number than than Jesus
14:34right how about Peter same thing how many years decades did
14:40Paul labor as a Christian far more years than Christ did same with
14:46Peter and both of these men laid down their lives and you’ll note that they their
14:52Works were absolutely way greater than Jesus’s Works were and as Apostles of
15:00Jesus Christ those who were specifically sent as emissaries of Christ directly
15:05who can do business in his name and give commands in his name which ordinary
15:10Apostles could not do was the APO did the Apostle Paul perform greater signs
15:15than Jesus no did Peter perform greater signs
15:23than Jesus than Jesus no they performed a handful of signs and they’re recorded
15:29for us in the Acts of the Apostles but greater signs than Christ did know so when Jesus says whoever believes in me
15:36will also do the works that I do it is not talking about performing miracles
15:41and you’ll note that in today’s charismatic movements people are put under a very heavy burden told that they
15:49have to perform Miracles they need to yield themselves to the holy spirit so
15:56that the Holy Spirit can then see their yieldedness and finally begin to perform miracles
16:02through them but this is not what the scripture teaches
16:08at all and so you’ll note that these people are caught in errors maze so we continue
16:14then with our gospel text that Jesus did perform signs and wonders but he
16:20proclaimed the gospel of the kingdom and he performed Miracles and as we heard
16:26John say the purpose of Jesus is Miracles these were signs so that you
16:31might believe that he is the Christ the son of God and here’s an important bit have you ever read the scriptures and go
16:37man what’s wrong with the day I’m living in how come we don’t have Miracles the
16:42way they had miracles in the Bible have you ever stopped to think
16:48and really investigate this out Miracles are even rare in the scriptures
16:54I want you to think about it was Noah a miracle worker how about Abraham
17:01Isaac Jacob nope not at all how about
17:07um that that guy who had the dreams Joseph was he a miracle worker nope not
17:13a miracle worker at all who was the real first miracle worker in
17:18all of scripture Moses and you’ll note that when Moses was
17:23being commissioned by God as a prophet because that’s exactly what Moses was Moses he wasn’t really keen on the
17:31assignment read Exodus 3 and 4. and he legitimately asked God well what if I go to the children of Israel and say the
17:37god of your fathers has sent me and they go what sign do you do to prove that this is the case right what did God do
17:45no problemo I’m going to give you three signs and what were they changing water
17:50into blood hmm that sounds interesting right changing
17:56water into blood then taking his staff that his Shepherd staff throwing it on the ground and it
18:03becoming a serpent and then he can grab it by the tail and it would become a staff again and the third sign is he can
18:09take his hands stick it into his cloak pull it out and it would be leprous put it back in and it would no longer be
18:15leprous right and these were the signs that God gave him to validate that he
18:21was actually sent by God and after Moses who were the great miracle workers
18:28was Joshua a miracle worker no Joshua wasn’t how about the judges
18:34no they weren’t miracle workers either how about Samuel
18:39no David Solomon no they weren’t miracle workers either
18:45the next miracle workers in scripture are Elijah and Elisha the ones who kind of set up the school
18:52of the prophets whose task was to write the Old Testament that’s what they were doing and God sent Miracles with them to
19:00validate their prophetic Ministry and the project they were working on which was the writing of the Old Testament and
19:06then after Elisha who are the great miracle workers again um no I don’t know any great miracle
19:13workers until Jesus right and you’re going to note this anybody
19:18who says well you can do Greater Works than Jesus that means you can perform Miracles I would like to point something
19:24out and that’s this um who Among Us can say that after their
19:30death they raise themselves from the grave on the third day after they died
19:36not a single one of them okay and I’ll be blunt doing this is not
19:42nearly as impressive as raising yourself from the grave right when Jesus went into the temple and cleared the money
19:49changers out in the Gospel of John early on if the Pharisees and the scribes and the
19:55the people in charge of the temple came up to Jesus and said what sign by what
20:00Authority are you doing these things because Jesus was acting like he had complete authority to kick people out of
20:08the temple he is God by the way and that Temple was set up in the name of Yahweh
20:13who Jesus is in human flesh and Jesus answered them tear down this Temple and in three days I will build it again I
20:20will build it again and they said it’s taken 46 years to build this Temple Jesus and you’re going to rebuild it in
20:26three days but what does the text say the temple he was referring to was the Temple of his body and you’ll note in
20:33all of scripture there is nobody even who comes close to Jesus in The Miracles
20:41that he’s performed and here’s where we’ve got to pay attention to the error
20:46that is running through the church in our time Bill Johnson the Apostle of
20:52Bethel Church in Redding California here’s how he says it nowadays he said Jesus Is God eternally and never stop
21:00being God but he was also man completely man in his Earthly life he lived from
21:06his Humanity to illustrate his dependence on the father in a way that
21:12could then be emulated by us
21:19whoa wait what in other words what he legitimately
21:24believes is that Jesus performed all of his miracles as a man fully submitted to
21:31the Holy Spirit not by virtue of the fact that he’s God in human flesh which no scripture
21:37teaches and then on top of it that we’re supposed to follow the example of Jesus
21:43when it comes to being miracle workers again what kind of a head trip does this put on people
21:49puts a huge Head trip on it and crushing guilt when they fail to operate in the
21:55miraculous the way Jesus did and then Bill Johnson twists a Biblical text he
22:01says Jesus said the son of man can do nothing of himself illustrating his
22:07dependence wait a second I know what that text is and he ripped this out of context and
22:15left an important part of the details out this text is found in the Gospel of John
22:20chapter 5. and here’s what it says
22:26Jesus says in chapter 5 verse 19 truly truly I say to you the son can do
22:31nothing of his own accord but only what he sees the father doing for whatever
22:37the father does that the son does likewise when you put the work when you put
22:43Christ’s words back in their context you’ll note that he is not saying I’m I
22:49can do nothing of myself which means I can do only my Miracles through the power of the Holy Spirit that’s not what
22:54he was saying he was saying I can only do the things I see my father doing I do the exact same things as God I don’t do
23:01things of my own accord or according to my own will
23:07so what Bill Johnson does has done here has completely Twisted this text and
23:13unfortunately there are millions of people you you even know some people who
23:18believe that we are supposed to follow the example of Jesus by performing Miracles now I would note this doesn’t
23:25make a lick of sense because you’ll know in the scriptures in the in the book of Acts who were the ones who could perform
23:32miracles the apostles right but what about the Grassroots ordinary
23:39everyday kind of Christian you know the people who were just hard at work doing
23:44what what people do being hard at work well there’s an account in the book of
23:49Acts chapter nine it’s the story of Dorcas and I have to say this up front I went to school when I was in in junior
23:55high with a girl whose parents named her Dorcas don’t do this okay I did she was teased
24:04horribly for having this name I know it’s biblical if you’re going to name her according to Dorcas name her Tabitha
24:12but do not name her Dorcas because in English that’s not a good word a good
24:18name to have just saying so here’s what it says in Acts chapter 9 36 there was
24:24in Joppa a disciple named Tabitha which translated means Dorcas she was full of
24:29good works and acts of charity and in those days she became ill and she
24:36died note that’s normally how it goes when somebody has an extended illness
24:41then they die and you’re gonna know there’s no mention here that the other Godly Christian women who were working
24:48with Tabitha or Dorcas that they tried to ex decree and declare and command and
24:56control and perform miracles to heal her of her illness not a lick of that is even mentioned right instead she became
25:03ill and over the course of time she died and when they had washed her they laid her in an upper room since Lita was near
25:11Joppa the disciples hearing that Peter was there sent two men to him urging him
25:16please come to us without DeLay So Peter Rose and went with them and when he
25:22arrived they took with him to the upper room and all the widows Stood Beside Peter weeping and showing tunics and
25:28other garments that Dorcas had made while she was still with them but Peter put them all outside and he knelt down
25:36and he prayed and turning to the body he said Tabitha arise and she opened her
25:42eyes and when she saw Peter she sat up and she gave her his hand and he raised
25:48her up and then calling the Saints and the widows he presented her alive note the Apostle Peter can operate in the
25:55signs of the Apostles and note he also did not chastise these women going why
26:01are you bothering me why aren’t you following the example that Jesus gave
26:06you to follow why didn’t you raise her from the dead you know why because they couldn’t
26:13they were not given those signs they didn’t have that Authority and it is a
26:18false Doctrine to say that because Jesus performed Miracles we can perform them too
26:24in fact saying that is complete idolatry and a twisting of God’s word that binds
26:30people’s consciences and ruins their faith because at the end of the day they’re going to have to come to grips
26:37with this horrible brutal reality they can’t perform miracles
26:43despite all their delusional attempts to do so they’re not able to operate in
26:49them and then when they come to the end of that line and they look back in these churches and they say you know what they
26:55weren’t really performing Miracles there either this whole thing is a scam Christianity is false
27:01there are a whole lot not a small amount a whole lot of people who are ex former
27:07Christians because when this bad theology runs its course
27:12you say Christianity is a complete scam it’s not real it’s just a bunch of delusional people all playing
27:18make-believe when it comes to signs and wonders and miracles that’s where it leads and here’s what’s
27:23worse if the person is suffering from a chronic illness they have the crushing
27:28weight of feeling guilty because somehow their lack of faith or their sinfulness
27:33has kept them from being able to operate in the signs that they were supposed to engage in
27:38and so you’ll note this idolatry ruins people it ruins their faith and sends
27:44them out of Christianity altogether and if you know anybody who believes
27:50these things have mercy on them and walk them through these texts and show them
27:55how they have been deceived and I would note this not only did Peter not chastise those
28:03those women when they called him to raise Dorcas from the dead and to
28:08restore her not only did he not chastise them for not following Jesus’s model of
28:15of Performing signs and wonders it is that same Apostle Peter who has given us
28:20a very clear text telling us what we as Christians are to do
28:26how we are to model Christ in fact here’s what it says in First Peter
28:32chapter 2. listen carefully servants be subject to your masters with
28:37all respect not only to the good and to the gentle but also to the unjust
28:45now most of us have had to work out in the workforce to one degree or another maybe
28:53you started off as a teenager working in a fast food restaurant or maybe working in the service industry finding a way to
29:00make a living in a restaurant or whatever and then you were able to graduate from college and get a job in a
29:06you know in your field of study or whatever but here’s the thing once you go to work in the workforce you’re going
29:13to show up and you’re not going to be the boss you’re going to have a boss and
29:18I would note this as somebody who’s been in the workforce I’ve had some pretty bad bosses some really goofy bosses
29:26who’ve made some really bone-headed decisions I have a hard time watching the office even though it’s in reruns
29:33the reason why is it can it sends me into PTSD you know I I trigger and I
29:38feel like ah I don’t want to remember that because I swear I work for Michael Scott I worked for Dunder Mifflin even
29:46if it wasn’t a different an industry right and what do you do when you have an unjust stupid boss who’s overbearing
29:54who mistreats people mistreats you and you’re just there to do your job to make
29:59a living what do you do well Peter says this it is a gracious
30:05thing when you are mindful of God one endures Sorrows while suffering unjustly
30:13wait I thought I was supposed to have my best life now good luck on that by the way for what
30:20credit is it if when you sin and you are beaten for it and you endure but if when
30:26you do good and you suffer for it and you endure this is a gracious thing in
30:33the sight of God for to this you have been called and listen to what he says here because
30:39Christ also suffered for you leaving you an example so that you might follow in
30:47his steps when Jesus was reviled he did not revile
30:52in return when he suffered he did not threaten but he continued entrusting
30:58himself to him who judges justly he himself bore our sins in his body on the
31:05tree so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness and by his wounds
31:11you have been healed for you were like sheep straying but now you have returned
31:17to the shepherd and the overseer of your souls put putting it this way
31:23the sin we’re dealing with today head on false Doctrine is a form of breaking the first commandment and also the second
31:31it is a form of idolatry where you are worshiping a false god a god of your own making but secondly by twisting God’s
31:39word by tinkering with it and evacuating of its true meaning you are taking God’s
31:45name in vain and you are making his word void these
31:51are Grievous sins against God and against other human beings because people then who trust in your lying
31:59words and in your Twisted words of scripture then are in danger of losing not only their lives but their Eternal
32:05souls and so you’ll note that God has had mercy on us and sent Jesus Christ
32:11who suffered and bled in our place so that we can be forgiven of all of our
32:17breakings of God’s commandment including the first and the second commandment and
32:22that being the case he also in the gospel which is the good news he has
32:28forgiven us of our sins reconciled us to God and as Peter says has given us a
32:34clear example for us to follow the example that we are to follow in the
32:40Life of Christ is not the life of of miracle worker but of those who suffer for doing good
32:51that is the map that is what we are to do that is the model of Christ that we
32:56are to follow we are not to emulate Jesus in his Miracle working good luck on that by the way if you try
33:03it doesn’t matter how yielded how obedient how much you try you will never be a miracle worker like Christ
33:10but I would say this the one thing I can say for sure is that every ordinary
33:16Grassroots Christian knows exactly what it’s like to suffer when you’ve done
33:21good and you’ll note that this is a gracious thing in the eyes of God and Christ has
33:27left this example for us to follow so brothers and sisters it’s a weird thing to do on the occasion of this text
33:35from Matthew 4. we must come to grips with the fact that Jesus did perform Miracles this is
33:41absolutely true and he performed them to prove that he was none other than God in human flesh and no person today in the
33:48charismatic movement the Nar or any Evangelical Church even remotely comes close to Christ and anyone who’s
33:55claiming that they are they’re putting on a magic show not performing Miracles right they’re deceiving you and anyone
34:02who says that we have to follow the example of Jesus by performing Miracles is also twisting God’s word and lying
34:09let us repent of all ways in which we have broken the first and second commandment trust that Christ has bled
34:16and died for our sins as the scripture says and he has proved that we are forgiven by raising himself from the
34:22dead on the third day after he was crucified and let us then take the advice of the Apostle Peter to emulate
34:29Christ to follow his example by suffering for doing good just as Christ did in the
34:37name of Jesus Amen
