SUNDAY SERMON- [Verses from New Christian Harvest- Rock City- Mass]
Isaiah 54:2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;Isaiah 54:3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

[Hear Bob’s testimony- this verse would fit Psalm 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.]
.Ancient of days
.Mount of transfiguration
.Not a fable
.Apostle Allen speaks
.God’s perfect discipline
.Judges 19- review
.Levite took a bride from Judah [type of God’s unfaithful people]
.She plays the harlot- and yet he seeks her- and gets her back
.But the law [Levite] cannot save her
.She is then brutally raped- and dies
.The Levite finds her dead- cuts her into 12 pieces [yes- tough story]
he then sends the 12 pieces put to the families of Israel
.All the law [Levite] can do is reveal sin [the 12 pieces] but it could not save from the penalty of sin [which is death]
NEW- I never like to rush- but will try and do a quick re-cap.
Today I was going to go to Church Unlimited- but the car wouldn’t start- no problem- I jumped on the motorcycle and went to Rock City Church.
After the service I figured I would just do the teaching walking around the area where Rock City is located [in The Bluff].
I figured I would run into my friends on the street- and it might make it hard to simply teach.
Sure enough you see a few of them on the video.
After I taught- I went to the park to see some of the guys- and on the way back- my friend Don [the pier friend] was waving me down- his truck broke down and I gave him a ride on the bike to the auto shop- he did a quick fix on the truck [broken tie rod] and I followed him home.
So- just got back to the house [as I write] and will cover some of the verses from Rock City- the Mass- and New Christian Harvest [the feeding ministry Dave Watters does on Saturday].
In Daniel we read about the coming kingdom-
Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.Daniel 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
In Matthew we see a glimpse of the kingdom on the mount-
Matthew 17:1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,Matthew 17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.Matthew 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
The apostle Peter recounts this experience in his letter-
2Peter 1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
2Peter 1:17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
2Peter 1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
Yes- Jesus is the king who ushered in the New Covenant- not one of law- but grace.
In Judges 19 we read the strange account of the Levite who married a woman from Judah-
Judges 19:1 And it came to pass in those days, when there was no king in Israel, that there was a certain Levite sojourning on the side of mount Ephraim, who took to him a concubine out of Bethlehem judah.
The Levite is a type of the law- the concubine a type of God’s people- who yes- have been unfaithful-
Judges 19:2 And his concubine played the whore against him, and went away from him unto her father's house to Bethlehem judah, and was there four whole months.
In the story the wife dies a brutal death [the law- Levite- cannot give life- or save the bride from the wages of sin- which is death]
Judges 19:25 But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go.
Judges 19:26 Then came the woman in the dawning of the day, and fell down at the door of the man's house where her lord was, till it was light.
Judges 19:27 And her lord rose up in the morning, and opened the doors of the house, and went out to go his way: and, behold, the woman his concubine was fallen down at the door of the house, and her hands were upon the threshold.
After the wife is killed- the Levite cuts her up into 12 pieces and sends her to the other tribes-
Judges 19:29 And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces, and sent her into all the coasts of Israel.
Judges 19:30 And it was so, that all that saw it said, There was no such deed done nor seen from the day that the children of Israel came up out of the land of Egypt unto this day: consider of it, take advice, and speak your minds.
Yes- the law [Symbolized by the Levite] can only expose sin- and in this act- the Levite revealed the evil deed done by those who killed her-
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Jesus is the Son who came from the tribe of Judah- not the priests from the law- but a tribe that priests under the law did not come from-
