Paul Muresan – A Venit din Vesnicie (Remix)

 

/:Ninge:/ Ninge, ninge, ninge peste noi
/:Ninge:/ Ninge, ninge, ninge peste noi

/:Ninge, zboara fulgi de nea:/
Tremuratoare, stele de-argint
Zboara si-luneca hore de-alint

/:Peste crengile-amortite
Peste vaile ruginite
Dumnezeu din cer trimite
Strai de margarit:/ Strai de margarit
S-a nascut si pentru tine
A venit din vesnicie

/:Ninge, zboara fluturi albi:/
Stele de stele, in hora se prind
Alba mahrama pe-ogoare intind

/:Cum pe-a Domnului blanda fata
Puse giulgiul fior de gheata
Doar Isus iesi la viata
Moartea-a biruit:/ Moartea-a biruit
S-a nascut si pentru tine
A venit din vesnicie

/:Ninge, joaca pui de stea:/
Infiorate, paduri si poteci
Dorm invelite, in panzele reci

/:Dar de sus din albastra Tara
Cand Cel drag se-va-ntoarce iara
Vom avea o primavara
Pana-n veci de veci:/ Pana-n veci de veci
S-a nascut si pentru tine
A venit din vesnicïe

Don Carson preaching at the Chinese Conference in Los Angeles (2 sessions)

The Good Samaritan

The Rich Man and Lazarus

These 2 sermons are from October 26-28, 2012: held in Los Angeles, CA- Chinese Conference sponsored by Kernel of Wheat Ministries. The text is in

Luke 16:19 The Rich Man and Lazarus. Carson: How shall we understand this story? Is Jesus saying that there is always a simple reversal?-

  • live life well, end in hell
  • suffer pain, enjoy great gain
  • if you’re happy here, you’ll be miserable there
  • if you’re miserable here, you’ll be happy there

d a carsona simple reversal? Now, clearly, there is some kind of reversal here. But, so much of Scripture stands against any notion that there’s always reversal. For example, in Scripture, there are at least some Godly rich people. Think of Abraham, Job, Esther, at least in his early days, Solomon, Philemon, probably Theophilus. Moreover, there are at least some poor who are wicked. The Bible is very compassionate against those who are poor through no fault of their own. And, especially compassionate towards those who are poor because they are oppressed. But, the Book of Proverbs can also consider some poor, who are poor because they’re lazy. The sarcasm drips off the page.

Moreover, one has to integrate this passage with the rest of the Gospel of Luke. All four Gospels, including Luke are rushing towards the cross. If our eternal destiny is founded on the simple reversal theme, we don’t need the cross, all we need is poverty. (That is why) it is important to read our passage within the context. (5:02)…

What is the very essence of idolatry?

Obviously, it’s possible to serve two masters, if neither one is asking for absolute control. But, where there are competing interests, only one can win. And, the particular application Jesus makes here is you cannot serve both God and money. Of course He could have made other applications: You cannot serve both God and power, you cannot serve both God and sex. Now, in all three cases- money, power and sex- there is nothing intrinsically wrong with it. Money can be very useful and do a lot of good. Power, rightly exercised can be reforming. And sex, within its God ordained constraints is everywhere pictured as a good gift. But, even a good thing becomes a bad thing, that (eventually) becomes the supreme thing. That is the very essence of idolatry. For idolatry, you don’t necessarily have to follow a bad thing. All you have to do is make a good thing the supreme thing.

That’s why elsewhere Paul says covetousness is idolatry. Because when you covet something, that’s what you want the most, so that becomes God for you. But Jesus tells us that you cannot have 2 masters. If God is God you cannot most want money. What we most want is what we most fantasize about, what we daydream about, what we thing about. So the task becomes very clear: You cannot serve both God and anything else.

Pharisaism

In verses 14-15, we find Jesus addressing the Pharisees directly. The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. When it says that they sneered Him, almost certainly, they were sneering at him because they had money and He didn’t. So, among themselves, they were saying something like this: „Well, Jesus, you’re just some poor, itinerant preacher from Galilee. You don’t have money, so you don’t understand. We could be very Godly with our money,” they would say. „We tithe. We give alms for the poor. We can follow God and be rich. Don’t you see, that’s what we are?” They’re sneering at him. But, Jesus doesn’t back down. He says, in verse 15, „You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts.

In biblical justification, God justifies the ungodly on the basis of what Christ has done. But, in self justification, we justify ourselves on the basis of what we do. To be quite frank, sometime, when we are formally thanking God for graces that we’ve received, our motivations are so complex that at the same time we are patting ourselves on the back for having them. And, instead of seeing that we should be people that are constantly asking God for His grace, we become people who are quietly self congratulating ourselves. That’s what’s going on in this text.

These Pharisees are justifying themselves in front of others, in the context of talking about money, then they’re saying things like this, „God must like me quite a lot, because he’s blessed me with quite a lot of money.” And so, when they came up to a spotlight in their brand new chariot, and came up to someone who was driving just a broken down donkey, they would not actually say, „I’m better than they are.” But, deep down, when the light changed and they took off in their chariot, they knew that they were better. It’s so easy when you have money to begin to rank yourself, as compared with others, on the basis of how much you’ve got. Now, let me insist again. There are Godly men in scripture with money like Job, for example. So, if you’re a job, you don’t need this comment I’m about to make.

But, if you are not a Job, I warn you that having a lot of money is so easily away of justifying yourself in front of others who have less. You develop a ranking system in the church- not on the basis of Godliness or evangelistic fervor, but, on the basis of money. What does Jesus say about that? Verse 15- „what people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.” Now you see, it’s not the money God detests. He detests the money when people value the money so much as to make the money God. When they start to justify themselves on the basis of their money, then God detests it. Once again, we discover that the context is talking quite a lot about money.

The idolatry of possessions

At the end of chapter 15- The Parable of the Prodigal Son- (in which) a prodigal wastes His father’s possessions. Then at the beginning of chapter 16 – a dishonest servant wastes his master’s possession. Now, in the story of ‘the rich man and Lazarus‘, a rich man wastes his own possessions. In fact, we’re in a part of Luke’s Gospel where there’s a lot of emphasis on the idolatry of possessions. But, in principle, once again I must remind you that you could tell a very similar story  if you made sex your god, or if you made power your god, or if you made beauty your god, or if you made being a hunk your god. But here, the focus is on money. (18:30) There are still 40 minutes left of this message, which you can watch below. Uploaded by

Ravi Zacharias in Portland, Oregon / Vancouver, Washington – January 18 & 19, 2013 at the Mission ConneXion NW

I already posted this announcement, but I have found new details thanks to the heads up on this by Gabi Bogdan:

One big detail I did not know of and therefore did not mention is that the conference is FREE However, you do have to print out a free ticket here, complete the form and bring it with you to the event- http://www.missionconnexion.com/event-news

Furthermore, the organizers seem very, very welcoming, even urging to bring the young and the old to this conference. So here’s a few more details you should know:

Ravi Zacharias will be a key note speaker at the Mission ConneXion Northwest Conference taking place on the 18th and 19th of January.

According to the website- Mission ConneXion Northwest is the „Great Commission in action!” Sponsored by churches from the region, it is a two day event challenging the Church to fulfill the Great Commission. Its three-fold purpose is to inform, celebrate, and challenge people of all ages to get involved in missions by sending, praying, giving and going.

One great thing is that the conference is free and is open to the young and the old. (They are sponsored by local sponsoring churches which make an annual contribution, organizations pay a rental fee for exhibit space, and people who attend are invited to make donations.

There will be 127 workshops to choose from, everyone will find something which fits their passions and interests. In addition to 25 different workshop tracks, we will also feature two showings of the film Un|Divided. (The movie is about the work of Kevin Palau with among other things a public high school that was going to be closed b/c it was so dilapidated and 20% of its students were homeless. In April 2008, Kevin Palau, President of the Portland-based Luis Palau Association, launched “A Season of Service” – a citywide program where volunteers from local churches mobilize to meet the physical needs in their communities. The program had the support of Portland’s mayor and Kevin recruited churches to volunteer during the summer months to do community projects – one of which was at Roosevelt High School.

We have the annual favorite workshop tracks such as Islam, Apologetics, Prayer and Spiritual Warfare, as well as the Persecuted Church. Our keynote speakers will each be sharing at a workshop as well as the main sessions. This year, we are pleased to introduce two brand new workshop tracks: Education in Missions, sponsored by Multnomah University, and Mormonism. Other relevant tracks include Jesus and Justice, Orality (Storytelling), Business as Mission, Sports Ministry, Gospel Movements and Take Action Locally. To equip your missional toolbox, be sure to attend foundational sessions such as Financing Missions, Short-term Missions, Unreached People and Missionary Care.
