Florin Ianovici – Toiagul nostru la Biserica Poarta Cerului Suedia (2)

Ianovici Suedia

Toiagul nostru, Isus Hristos

Moise era in fata Marii Rosii, si asta nu se trece cu barca. Undeva in spate venea ostile Faraonului. Venea Faraon cu carele, erau amenintatoare. Se auzea deja bubuitul rotilor. Faraon vine acuma sa se razbune, ca si-a dat seama ca asta poate sa o faca. El nu poate schimba cursul istorie, dar de razbunat, orice prost poate sa se razbune. La un moment dat, zice Moise, ce fac eu acuma? Sedinta de comitet- frate, criza, greu- La care comitetul zice, „Treaba ta, tu ne-ai adus aici. Toti cei din jurul lui Moise s-au uitat la Moise si au zis, „Ne-ai adus in pustie sa murim. Mai bine ne lasa-i in Egipt si traiam. Rob, rob, cu coloana totdeauna garbovita, dar eram in viata.” Si ciudat, ciudat e omul, ciudat e pocaitul cateodata. Pentru ca nu te astepti de la el la niste reactii ca acestea. Astepti normalitate, astepti intelepciune. Nu te astepti sa-ti sara si sa iti spuna cuvintele acestea. Stiti de ce? Pentru ca noi nu avem in capul bisericii un om, noi Il avem pe Isus Hristos. Dar, uneori uitam lucrul acesta si ne purtam cum ne vine la indemana. Si sarim si spunem vorbe amare, la adresa unuia, la adresa altuia. „Cine-i asta, uita-te la asta, mai bine nu predica, mai bine nu zicea.” Asta se intampla. (Photo below via www.esquire.com )

Sunt trei variante. Zice Moise, Doamne, ma duc cu toiagul asta si ma bat cu Faraon. La care Dumnezeu spune, „Noi n-avem de purtat razboi impotriva carnii si a sangelui. Tu nu te lupti cu lumea.” Niciodata s anu credeti ca lupta voastra este in biserica „noi si voi”, sau „raii si bunii”, „fii si paganii”. Niciodata, Dumnezeu nu vrut si nu a intentionat lucrul acesta. Dupa care putea sa zica Moise, „Las’ ca-i iau la bataie pe astia.” „Ma, nu vi rusine? Vin eu din pustiu. Ma nesimtitilor, ma. Acuma, cand eu am ajuns aici, vreti sa ma omorati? Las ca va dau eu cu toiagul pana…. tu pus deoparte… tu pus deoparte… si tu pus deoparte… Toti pusi deoparte! Si atunci la cine predici pastore? La scaune? A-ti inteles? Se poate? Se poate. Pentru ca ai toiagul, nu? Ce faci cu el e important. La care Dumnezeu ii spune lui Moise, „Moise, tu sa nu uiti un lucru. Toiagul acesta nu este pentru spectacol. Toiagul acesta si ce-ti dau eu autoritatea, e ca tu sa poruncesti celor nevazuti. Indreaptati toiagul spre mare.” Si la ridicat Moise. „Si spune asa: Mare, da-te la o parte.” La care marea ascultatoare s-a dat la o parte, stanga, dreapta.

Fratii mei si surorile mele, ascultati ce va spun: Eu nu sunt un om nemacinat. Eu sunt un om foarte macinat. Eu nu sunt un om nelovit. Eu sunt lovit, ce nu stiti voi, batut ca snitele. Toate partile. Dar am invatat un lucru in viata. Raspunsul meu nu este in fata celui ce ma acuza. Nici in fata celui care ma ocaraste. Raspunsul meu este in a ma increde in Dumnezeul care face minuni si semne.

Deci, spuneam aseara ca pastorul nostru a intrat la spital, n-a mai iesit. Intr-o saptamana a murit. A lasat asa biserica. Eram trei pastori asistenti. Si atunci biserica a zis ca unul sa mearga pastor principal. Asa a fost votul. A iesit cu un vot. A iesit cu un vot pastor principal. (Zice el) „Vin Duminica viitoare la biserica, ma duc la amvon, eu pastor principal.” Nu poti intr-o saptaman sa te schimbi cine esti tu dupa o zi cu alta. „Acuma, eu sunt pastorul principal, ascultatima,” nu merge asa. Si mi-a fost teama, ca au fost oameni care nu m-au vrut. Asa este peste tot. Au inceput sa dea, sa dea. Si greseli aveam o gramada. Normal, nu-i om fara greseala. Numai dragostea ne face sa trecem peste diferente. La un moment dat, imi spune Domnul Dumnezeu- (atata m-am macinat, atata m-am amarat si am spus Doamne, „Dar, mai scumpa ca orice imi este mantuirea si Isus Hristos, Mantuitorul sufletului meu. Nu ma lasa sa-mi pierd in viata bucuria mantuirii, Doamne. Nu ma lasa, slujind i felul acesta sa ma amarasc Doamne. Dar eu de ce sa fiu de felul asta, ca eu sunt tot acelasi copil care te-a iubit dintotdeauna. Acuma ca am ajuns pastor principal, unii ma urasc. Pur si simplu ma urasc.” Si atunci am zis, „Fa Tu ceva.”

Intr-o Sambata imi pregateam predica. Si mi-a zis Domnul Dumnezeu, „Pregateste-o ca maine iti voi intari autoritatea.” Au, ce m-am bucurat! Stiti la ce m-am gandit? Ca ma duc la unu si ma rog pentru el si se ridica din scaun, un paralitic. Asta m-am gandit eu. Pun mainile peste un bolnav, se vindeca si toti vor sti ca eu sunt al lui Dumnezeu. Sau face Dumnezeu o minune cu mine. Asa m-am bucurat ca ma duc la biserica si Dumnezeu imi intareste autoritatea. Am plecat asa de bucuros. Cand am ajuns la biserica era Cina Domnului. La Cina Domnului, predicam despre viata impletita: binele cu raul. In viata nu avem numai zile cu soare sau zile cu nori. Viata e impletita. In aceiasi zi e si soare si nori. Nu trebuie sa astepti raul pe maine. In fiecare zi ai parte si de bucurie si de tristete. Si ziceam, „Credeti ca acum cand ne bucuram noi cu Domnul Satana face un plan? La care… „Da, credem pastore ca Satana face un plan.” (6:00)

Atunci eu am coborat de la amvon si numai ce am auzit un urlet care imi ridica parul in cap. O femeie undeva, o strapitura de femeie a inceput sa urle in biserica. La care ea zice, „Nu te mai sufar! Nu te mai sufar!” Mie imi zicea asta. „L-am luat pe cel care a fost inainte,” (adica pastorul care murise) „si acuma am venit dupa tine.” Satan a venit in biserica. Fratele Pavel, care a plecat la Domnul, din spate, pune mana pe femeie (ca sa o opreasca) la care asta ii da una (ea avea 40 de kg) dar fratele Pavel n-a mai stat in picioare. Eram la amvon si fara sa-mi dau seama, am plecat spre ea. N-aveam nimic , nici un plan. Nu ma invatase nimeni ce sa fac intr-asemenea situatie. Dar Dumnezeu din cer a hotarat sa-si proslaveasca numele. M-am dus spre ea, eu, ce pastor eram eu? M-am dus si m-am oprit in fata ei si am zis, si astazi tin minte, „In numele lui Isus Hristos pe care Il slujesc iti poruncesc sa taci, fara gura. Ca plastelina sa facut. A cazut la oamant gramada.

In acea Duminica, foarte putini au luat cina. Pur si simplu, coborase frica Domnului in adunare. S-a simtit prezenta lui Dumnezeu acolo. Pentru ca nu ai nevoie sa te lupti cu sangele si cu carnea sa dovedesti omului. Nu-l catigi nici cu ciocolata, nici cu flori, nici cu vorbe din acestea, complimente ieftine. Dumnezeu, de este cu tine, vor vedea toti. Ca Dumnezeu isi face lucrarea. Pentru ca Dumnezeu il intareste pe cel care-l iubeste cu toata inima. Si ti-a dat Dumnezeu un toiag, nu sa te bati cu fratii. Nu ti-a dat Dumnezeu un toiag sa pleci de unul singur, nebun, la lupta pe strada. Cu Faraon, sau cu cine stie cine. Nu te lupti tu cu primariile, nu te lupti tu cu autoritatile, nu te lupti tu cu cei care au nu stiu ce structuri administrative. Tu luptate cu tine insuti sa fi copilul lui Dumnezeu.

Intinde toiagul spre mare si spune, „Imposibilule, da-te la o parte, ca eu vreau sa trec impreuna cu copiii Domnului.”

Moartea unei tinere

Evrei 11:21 Prin credință i-a binecuvântat Iacov, când era pe moarte, pe fiecare dintre fiii lui Iosif și s-a închinat, rezemat de toiagul său. Asa a murit Iacov, rezemat pe toiag. Fratii mei, mult nu mai avem de trait. Chiar daca am 44 de ani, in fiecare zi simt ca foarte, foarte aproape este timpul trecator. Azi dimineata m-a sunat sotia sa-mi spuna despre una dintre tinerele pe care o cunosc. O viata amarata ce a avut fata asta. Nu s-a casatorit bine, s-a casatorit rau. Sigur ca, poate in parte e si vina ei,  desi cine mai vorbeste despre vina? O viata amarata, un sot nenorocit, care pur si simplu a stins in ea toata dragostea care o avea. A avut o perioada cand, pur si simplu, s-a indepartat de Domnul Dumnezeu. Pentru ca, daca ai in casa un sot ca asta, va fi greu sa traiesti cu Domnul Dumnezeu. Dupa care, la un moment dat si-a dat seama si-a revenit in fire si s-a lipit de Dumnezeu cu toata puterea sufletului ei. Imi spunea (sotia) ca ea acum este in coma pentru ca a avut un accident. Femeia care era cu ea la volan a murit pe loc. Ea este in coma si medicii nici nu-i mai dau nici o sansa. Dar in ziua accidentului i-a spus mamei ei asa: Mama, daca ar fi vreo zi in care sa aleg sa mor, ar fi ziua de azi. Acuma ma simt cel mai aproape de Domnul. Si stiu ca daca as muri azi, ma duc acasa la Dumnezeu.

Fratii mei si surorile mele, vreau sa va spun un lucru: Viata asta nu merita traita, daca nu sti pentru cine sa traiesti. Viata aceasta merita traita numai atunci cand ai un toiag de la Dumnezeu si viata asta i-o inchini lui Dumnezeu. Iacov a zis: Eu mor pe toiagul acesta, ma spirjin pe el pentru ca toata viata, eu n-am facut decat un singur lucru. Am trait pentru Domnul Dumnezeu. Biblia spune, in Geneza 49, ca toiagul acesta era de fapt toiagul sin Silo si ca toiagul acesta reprezenta pe acela care urma sa vina. Si care intr-o zi de Vineri, stand pe cruce, a zis, „Tata, iarta-i, caci nu stiu ce fac.” De fapt, toiagul acesta pe care ne sprijinim noi are un nume si numele Lui este Isus Hristos.

Va spun un lucru: Sa nu va temeti de clipa plecarii voastre in vesnicie. Sa va temeti de o viata traita fara Dumnezeu. Sa nu va plangeti de greutatile pe care le aveti in viata, In ceasul plecarii tale singurul lucru care va conta in viata, nu va fi cate costume ti-ai luat. Nu va conta in viata cata mobila ti-ai adunat, ca n-am vazut pe nimeni ingropanduse cu frigiderul. Nu va conta in viata niciodata cate perechi de pantofi ai cumparat si nici ce masina ai in garaj, si nici cum ti-ai vopsit peretii. In clipa mortii tale, un singur gand te va bantui: Am facut oare cat pot pentru Dumnezeu? Mi-am trait oare viata in mod vrednic de Dumnezeu si de chemarea Lui? Ce faci Iacov? „Ma sting.” Dar, cum? „Odihnidu-ma pe varful toiagului, pentru ca eu trec acasa linistit.” Tot ce am avut in viata este lucrarea. Tot ce am mai valoros este slujba mea pentru Domnul Dumnezeu. Tot ce am in viata mai adevarat este ca Il iubesc pe Isus Hristos cu tot ce sunt eu.

Fratii mei, surorile mele, vreau sa inchei spunanduva urmatorul lucru: Avem ceva de facut. Haideti sa va spun ce trebuie sa facem. Doi soti vorbeau, si ea ii spunea mereu: Mai ce rufe murdare are vecina asta. N-am vazut femeie care sa spele mai prost ca ea. Si des spunea lucrul acesta. La care, intr-o zi, sotul se intoarce dupa ce a fost afara. Si iarasi ii spune sotia, „Iarasi a spalat vecine. Bai, dar ce rufe murdare, eu n-am vazut in viata mea. La care-i spune sotul, „Draga mea, vreau sa-ti spun un lucru, „Am fost afara. Vecina are cele mai curate si mai frumoase rufe pe care le-am vazut eu vreodata.” Vino incoace, zice ea, „Uita-te cat sunt de murdare.” Spune el, „Draga mea, problema nu-i cu rufele, problema este cu fereastra noastra, e murdara. Tot ce se vede prin ea pare murdar. Dar, de fapt, rufele sunt curate.”

Tu sti cine a venit in viata ta? Dumnezeu. Tu sti pe cine te spirjini? Pe Isus Hristos.   Tu sti cine ti-a dat toiag? Dumnezeul cerului. Dumnezeu iti spune in aceasta zi, „Ridica-te. Curatate inaintea mea. Sfinteste-te inaintea Mea si mergi cu tarie.” Intunerecul e real, dar la fel de real e si lumina. Intunericul e real, rautatea este reala. Dar, la fel de real este si faptul ca Dumnezeu, la Golgota a biruit. Va veni ziua cand vei fi tocat, zdrobit de catre cei din casa ta, de catre cei de langa tine. Dumnezeu iti spune un singur cuvant: Nu te lupta cu el, lupta-te cu puterile intunericului ale vazduhului, cu duhurile rautatii. Si indreapta toiagul spre ceea ce este imposibil si porunceste in numele lui Isus. La care Dumnezeu iti spune asa, „Te vei odihni.” Eu stiu ca ma voi odihni, si voi muri rau, ca eu stiu cum voi muri. Luni am aterizat de la Atena, am ajuns acasa, n-am deschis bagajul. M-am dus la biserica pentru ca era o zi de post si de rugaciune. Am stat cu fratii mei. La 21:30 am plecat la Oradea. Am stat la Oradea o zi, dupa care doua zile la Arad. M-am intors acasa, mam impachetat, am venit in Suedia. Din Suedia ma voi intoarce acasa si mai fac inca un drum spre Austria si inca un drum spre Italia. Si intr-o zi cand o sa ma uit de jur imprejur in jurul meu, o sa zic, „Unde’s Doamne?” Dumnezeu o sa spuna, „Esti in cer, acasa. Ai ajuns la Mine, s-a schimbat peisajul pentru totdeauna.Eu o sa inchid ochii si cand o sa-i deschid sunt in cer la Dumnezeu.” Si va spun in aceasta dupa amiaza, spirjiniti-va cu puterea lui Isus Hristos. Nu dati inapoi nici osecunda. Nu va lasati niciodata ingenunchiati de viata. Aveti in mana voastra un toiag, Hristos Isus, Domnul este viu in vecii vecilor! Nu trebuie sa fie Pastele ca sa zicem asta. Ii spui ina ceasta seara Domnului. Strang Doamne toiagul Tau pana mi se albesc incheieturile, Doamne. Strang toiagul Tau in mana mea pentru ca puterea Ta e palpabila, Domane. Strang toiagul Tau in mana si spun in aceasta zi, „Si de-as muri, eu nu dau inapoi nici o secunda. Mai bine mor asa, decat sa mor degeaba.” Sa traiesti pentru Isus Hristos, sa slujesti pe Isus Hristos. E tot ce ai pe pamantul acesta.

Florin Ianovici – Ce spune Ghetimani? la Biserica Poarta Cerului Suedia (1)

Ianovici Suedia

In viata, ai voie sa fi trist, dar n-ai voie sa disperi.

Sa stiti iubitii Domnului ca noi n-am fost facuti de Dumnezeu sa traim in felul asta. Imi dau seama cat de departe ne-a purtat pacatul. Iubesc pe Dumnezeu, datorita faptului ca modul in care a gandit El existenta noastra a fost diferit. Dumnezeu l-a asezat pe om in gradina Edenului si nu ne=a furat-o nimeni, am pierdut-o noi. Si am dat-o pe o mana de tarana si pe o lume de gunoaie. O sa spune-ti, „N-am dat-o eu frate, a dat-o Adam.” Ma tem ca nu-i asa. Ma tem ca fiecare zi din viata noastra nu este altceva decat o –- a ceea ce vrei sa fi si sa traiesti… Oricat am fugi dupa Eden, se pare ca Edenul l-am pierdut si asa ramane. Probabil ca indiferent in ce lor am merge si cat de frumos ar fi, Eden n-ai sa mai gasesti niciodata. Probabil ca singurul lucru care ar putea sa insemne Edenul sunteti voi. Si poate ca singura prezenta a Edenului este atunci cand inchidem ochii si cantam. Adica, singura prezenta a Edenului este atunci cand stam in prezenta lui Dumnezeu si spunem, „Doamne ai mila de sufletul meu”, vedem un crampei din gradina Edenului. Caci ce este gradina Edenului fara Hristos, decat un loc gol?

Dar, acum, indiferent ca vei sau nu vrei, cu Ghetimani te vei intalni. Orice om al lui Dumnezeu, care si-a pus nadejdea in Hristos si intr-o zi a zis, „Gata, vreau sa merg dupa Tine”, va ajunge mai devreme, sau mai tarziu in Ghetimani. Pentru ca Biblia spune ca nu putem merge pe alta cale, decat pe urma pasilor Lui. Toti vom merge pe calea Mantuitorului, si Mantuitorul a ajuns in Ghetimani. In Ghetimani sunt cateva lectii, care chiar si oamenii din secolul XXI le poate invata. Fiecare cuvant din sfanta Scriptura este pentru noi nevoia pentru noi puterea de a care avem nevoie zilnic.

Sunt doua momente periculoase in viata de credinta.

  1. Cel mai periculos (paradoxal) e viata dupa botez. O sa credeti ca cel mai greu moment e botezul. Va spun ca cele mai grele momente sunt dupa botez. Biblia spune ca dupa botez, Duhul l-a dus pe Isus Hristos in pustie. Si acolo a avut o intalnire cu cel rau si cel rau a cautat sa il ademeneasca pe Domnul Isus Hristos. Bagati de seama, ca dupa ce v-ati pocait exista o avalansa de lucruri in viata voastra, dicolo de care cel rau vrea sa va spuna, „Nu merita sa-L slujesti pe Dumnezeu”. Bagati de seama ca dupa ce v-ati pocait a-ti avut o serie de necazuri, la care nu v-ati asteptat, dincolo de care v-ati pus intrebarea: Nu era mai bine cand nu eram eu pocait? Cati dintre voi n-ati zis lucrul asta- „N stiu, dar de cand m-am pocait am intrat intr-o serie de necazuri, cand eu nu eram pocait n-am avut necazuri din astea. Stiti de ce? Pentru ca diavolul loveste si zice in felul urmator, „Nu merita sa incepi o viata cu Dumnezeu”. Dar, marit sa fie Isus Hristos ca pe voi v-a scapat si pe mine m-a scapat. Acuma nu mai suntem incepatori in credinta. In privirea acestei incercari grea in viata, de a fi ademeniti, multi dintre noi am scapat.
  2. Dar mai vine un ceas si mai vine un moment. Cu foarte multi oameni, care am stat de vorba inainte sa plece in vesnicie si inainte cu cateva ceasuri ca Domnul Isus sa-si dea Duhul, Satana a venit si L-a lovit in duh „Nu merita”, acelasi cuvant. Cuvantul care l-a spus la inceput, „Nu merita sa pleci cu Domnul Dumnezeu pe cale il va spune si la sfarsit de viata. De ce au grija oamenii sa dea greutate cuvintelor Satanei?

Atatea poveri pun oamenii pe spatele altor oameni si atata dezamagire duc oamenii, ca uneori cuvantul Satanei pare un cuvant bun: „nu merita”. Atatia dintre noi am facut deservicii credintei. Va spun: Cei mai multi ce sunt raniti din Biserica nu sunt raniti din lume, cei mai multi din biserica nu sunt mahniti de lume, pentru ca lumea e dusmanul si in fata dusmanului te pregatesti. N-ai asteptari mari. In fata celor din afara nu ai pretentii. Dar, in fata celor care sunt in biserica deschizi bratele si s-ar putea sa fi injunghiat, pentru ca nimeni nu te-a ucis cat te-a ucis biserica. Ciudat e ca uneori, noi ne ucidem cu succes unii pe altii. Ma rog in seara aceasta, in Numele Domnului Isus Hristos: Cine a inceput credinta cu Domnul, sa termine cu Domnul! Si sa ne ajute Domnul Isus sa nu fim pricina de poticnire pentru nimeni! Sa ma ajute Dumnezeu sa nu ranesc nici un frate de al meu si celui flamand sa-i dau sa manance, celui insetat sa-i dau sa bea, celui necajit sa dau o incurajare si celui pierit sa-i dau o veste buna. Sa stiti, iubitii Domnului, ca noi nu venim la biserica doar sa ne alimentam (sau sa ne incarcam bateriile). Venim la biserica sa ne slujim unii altora, sa ne incurajam unii pe altii si sa ne purtam poverile unii altora. Venim la biserica nu doar sa ni se dea ci ca sa si dam.

Paharul suferintelor – De multe ori in viata n-am inteles ce inseamna paharul suferintelor. De multe ori cantam despre paharul suferintelor, dar el nu e o sorbitura. Sa nu va asteptati in viata ca veti avea parte de un singur necaz. Paharul inseamna mult – nu o inghititura, ci multe inghitituri. Biblia spune ca dupa un val, un val cheama alt val. Vreau sa va spun ca in fiecare zi am parte de bucurii nespuse, dar nu-i saptamana sa am incercare. Nu-i saptamana sa nu trebuiasca sa port o lupta. Stiti de ce? Pentru ca paharul nu-i o sorbitura. Sa nu fiti naivi. Sa nu credeti ca suntem in concediu. Sa n credeti ca trebuie sa stam cu garda jos. Satana vrea sa ne cearna si ar vrea ca nici unul sa nu ajunga in rai. Cel rau este un vrajmas si un dusman si turba ca un leu turbat, cautand sa apuce, mai ales pe cei alesi. Niciodata sa nu te lasi pacalit si inselat… Ci sa spui: Doamne stiu ca numai Tu ma poti tine in picioare. Nu va incredeti in puterile voastre. Paharul suferintelor nu este o sorbitura- cine stie cat de mare e paharul tau si paharul meu.

Avem un soi de ipocrizie noi, predicatorii. Dumnezeu din cer sa ne ierte. Uneori ipocrizia aceasta nu este pentru ca noi suntem ipocriti. Ci e din ipocrizia voastra ca si voi sunteti ipocriti. Pentru ca nu vreti sa auziti de la amvon lucruri slabe, vreti sa auziti numai lucruri tari. Pentru ca nu vreti sa auziti ca oamenii de la amvon au si ei probleme si uneori sunt ingenunchiati in viata. Vreti sa vedeti doar super eroi la amvon. Ei, nu va vorbeste in seara aceasta un super erou, ci va vorbeste un om, care in fiecare zi lupta sa fie mantuit. Ca noi nu vrem sa auzim decat declaratii triumfaliste, nu vrem sa auzim decat super marturii, pe care Dumnezeu vindeca pe banda rulanta. Eu va spun ca am vazut oameni care au murit. Va spun ca sunt oameni care nu au paine pe masa si se inchina la aceluiasi Dumnezeu. Dar nu vrem sa auzim lucrurile acestea si atunci de multe ori suntem nevoiti sa va spunem ce vreti voi sa stiti. Dar, fie ce-o fi in seara asta, eu va spun ce am in inima. Mie nu-mi pasa de ceea ce spune omul, cand ceea ce spune omul nu e de acord cu ceea ce spune Domnul, pentru ca eu nu voi da socoteala inaintea omului.

In multe situatii, cand ma uit la Dumnezeu sunt descurajat, pentru ca mie mi se pare ca ceea ce cere Dumnezeu nu e usor. Dumnezeu imi cere ca fiecare gand al meu sa fie rob ascultarii de Hristos. Si eu am ganduri din astea de multe ori, pentru ca nu ma pot concentra la Dumnezeu 24 din 24 de ore si mi-e frica de lucrul asta. Pentru ca uneori vine o stare ciudata si m-am uitat ca nu totdeauna cuvintele mele sunt drese cu sare, nu totdeauna ochi mei sunt ochi curati si ma uit intotdeauna cu ochi curati. Uneori ma vad  si mi-e frica de ceea ce vad in mine. Dumnezeul nostru este un Dumnezeu care cere foarte mult. M-am uitat, iubitii Domnului si am vazut ca standardul lui Dumnezeu este inalt si de multe ori ma simt descurajat. Ma uit cum se ruga Domnul Isus si cand ma compar cu EL ma simt ca un vierme, nu ca un om. Cand vad ce face Domnul Isus intr-o zi, cand ma uit la ceea ce a avut Domnul Isus Hristos, sau mai degraba la ceea ce nu a avut Domnul Isus Hristos pe pamant, imi dau seama ca intre mine si El e o prapastie. Nu spuneti, iubitii Domnului, ca veniti iimbracati la biserica oricum. Daca pantofii nu sunt asortati cu costumul, nu-l iei. Nu spuneti ca veniti oricum, va uitati in oglinda cel putin de 2-3 ori. E diferenta in ceea ce sunt eu si ceea ce e El. Si de multe ori cand ma uit la felul de vietuire a Domnului Isus Hristos, im zic: „Pot eu sa ma numesc urmasul lui Isus?” E diferenta in ceea ce suntem noi si ceea ce este El? E diferenta! Asta e adevarul si Dumnezeu sa ne ajute sa nu fie. Pentru ca El a zis ca trebuie sa traim ca El!  (14:00) (Mai sunt 10 minute netranscrise)

Reflections on pastoring three decades in a downtown church (upon John Piper’s retirement from Pastoring)

This message is from September 12, 2012, when a new pastor was chosen for Bethlehem Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota where John Piper pastored for three decades (33 years to be precise). This allowed for Pastor John Piper to retires as pastor, in order to pursue more projects (such as traveling and speaking engagements, and writing more books) There are two previous (milestone) messages before this one that you can watch at the following links: (photo via www.desiringgod.org)

  1. There is the message given on December 29th, 2012 on his last official day as Pastor. You can watch it here – Sorrowful Yet Always Rejoicing
  2. And there is the last service he attended and preached, Easter Sunday March 31,2013 at Bethlehem Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota before retiring as Pastor there You can watch that video here – Last sermon John Piper preached. You can watch it here – God Raised Your Great Shepherd from the Dead
  3. There is also this new book being offered by Desiring God, authored by John Piper – FREE Ebook – Doctrine Matters by John Piper – Ten Theological Trademarks from a Lifetime of Preaching
  4. And here is a short snippet video message given at Southern Baptist Seminary recently in which John Piper talks about his love for the Book (Bible) and the influence Jonathan Edwards has had on his life- John Piper – What will you do your last 2 days?

The following message is from September 12, 2012 and has just been posted recently.

John Piper:

English: The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in M...

When I came to Bethlehem, in summer of 1980, which is just a few blocks from here, the Metrodome was under construction, and the first game was in 1982. And so, I came when it was being built, and I will leave next year, when it is being disassembled, and I’ve been thinking about the implications of that. (This was preached 9/12/2012 and by now, John Piper has already preached there for the last time, with the exception of  future visits at Bethlehem church). But, mainly, I’m mentioning it because of the way I responded to that felt threat. Not only when the dome was being built, did it feel threatening to our church: traffic, parking, crowds Sunday. Will this work anymore, when the games are at 12:03 and everyone’s driving in? But, when that freeway, that big junction, 94 & 35, when that was being built, in the late 60’s, early 70’s, you can imagine what a devastation that felt like to a nice, peaceful community that went across these nice little homes everywhere, and they’re wiping them out by the dozens, moving some of them. And our church is 100 feet away.

And the thought, „Can we even begin to survive, how is it even possible, will anybody be able to get here? So, the point is, how does one respond to threats. Because the point is, if you live even near an urban center, change is what happens. And maybe in little, rural communities the demands are very different. But, when you’re in a city, it is just one very exciting or threatening change, or both, one after another. And so, here’s what I wrote: I printed out the September 14, 1982 article that I wrote for our newsletter, called- God threw His shoe on Edom, or, The Dome is Dead. And the text was Psalm 108:9 „Moab is my wash basin, upon Edom I cast my shoe.” And, I’ll read the first two paragraphs:

Picture Edom in rebellion, against Yahweh and His people. Picture them mustering thousands and thousands of warriors. Picture the iron chariots, the war horses snorting and stamping, the bulging muscles and brawn skin of the mighty men, the razor sharp swords, the awful  pointed spears, the shields, flashing in the sun. The unflinching countenance of seasoned soldiers. Picture a horde of fierce fighting men, thundering through the valley. Fearful, dreadful, fierce, and powerful.

When God sees them coming, He sits down. He will wash His feet. With 18,000 fighting warriors approaching, like a stampede of Texas longhorns, God sits down to wash His feet. And then, as one would flick a fly, he tosses His shoe on Edom and 18,000 soldiers fall. God never even looked. He scarcely heard the noise. The world sits stunned at the victory, and God sits with His feet in the water. (3:40)

And that’s what I tried to show our people. That’s what I have been trying to show them for 30 years. We have a massively strong God. He’s never confused. He’s never perplexed. He’s never nervous. He’s never without an answer. He’s never threatened. And so, what I’d like to take my few minutes to do is just mention five things about that God that marked my efforts in the city here. And, you will discover immediately that they are not urban specific. And that is part of who I am. It’s been the way I’ve led, but, they are transferable, and they’re basic. So, here are the five things (4:35):

  1. Submit, (I have tried to, and I am encouraging you to)Submit to all of Scripture, as your absolute authority and bring into being a people who do the same. The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The testimonies of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart. The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, and the ordinances of the Lord are pure and righteous, altogether, more to be desired then gold, yeah, much fine gold.  Yeah, sweeter also than honey, and drippings from the honeycomb. Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward. (Psalm 19) Brothers, it marks the God pleasing churches when there is an absolute commitment to His word. (5:48)
  2. Think through a coherent God centered theology and build a people who breathe that vision. Acts 20 „I do not count my life of any value, or as precious to myself. If only I might finish my course, and the ministry God has given me, to bear witness to the Gospel of the grace of God.” And then, he goes on, „And now, behold, I know, none of you whom I have gone about proclaiming the kingdom of God will see my face again. Therefore, I testify to you, I am innocent of the blood of you all. For, I did not shrink from telling you the whole counsel of God.” I am going to say that to my people. But, what’s that mean? ‘Whole counsel of God’, Paul said he did it. So it’s not impossible to do, for a human being. ‘Whole counsel of God’ can’t mean infinite. He did it. My take is that the whole counsel of God is that whole cluster of truths surrounding the core, the Gospel- Christ crucified, risen for sinners… Packer sums up the Gospel in Propitiation through Substitution. So, around that are clusters of doctrines. They are supportive and they’re explanatory, and they’re necessary to protect it and explain it, and to work it out, and that’s the whole counsel- it’s not every word in the Bible. I have not even preached one sermon in 33 years on the Song of Solomon. I’m ashamed of that, it’s a great love story. Is should have done that. But, I’m just illustrating, you pick and you choose, and you realize at the end of 33 years… oops. I shouldn’t have spent 8 years on Romans.But, you do the best you can.

  3. Preach the glories of that Good News, and all the truths that support it, and flow from it. I am underlining the word preach. Herald. I don’t mean teach, that’s great. I don’t mean share, and discuss, that’s great. I mean: HERALD- what a town crier does. Preach. So here’s the connection. All Scripture is God breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, and correction, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God can be completely equipped for every good work. I solemnly testify, in the presence of God, and of Christ, who will appear to judge the living and the dead, by His appearing, and by His kingdom. PREACH THE WORD!!! That’s a weighty series of thoughts. And so, I’ve made that the bread and butter of the Bible theology preached. Because, frankly brothers, there are a lot of people today who don’t think preaching is uniquely used by God, but only one of many options. I believe that that word kerusso in 2 Timothy 4:2 means God has a special gift for His people, in the hour of worship over the word. And that, when a pastor full of the Holy Spirit, full of the word of God, heralds the glories of God in the Gospel, something unique happens. Other things are also essential. Small groups are also essential, education is essential, mission is essential. But, something unique happens, and I believe Bethlehem has thrived, flourished, maintained it’s unity through some really rocky times, because something happens in those moments, that, over and over again unite a people, in the presence of the living God, addressed by God almighty. So, I’m commanding it to you. You don’t have to have any particular personality to do this. If you have Jonathan Edwards on one side and Billy Sunday on the opposite side- they’re really different, and they both preached. Edwards, (with) one arm on a pillar and a manuscript in his hand, reading with blood earnestness, hardly a gesture. So, don’t write off preaching as a personality thing. (13:00)
  4. PiperMake prayer the visible engine of your life, and corporate prayer the visible engine of your church. So, have a place, and have a time for yourself. Spurgeon preached a sermon on a verse, that he called Robinson Crusoe’s verse. And the verse is „Offer to God a sacrifice of Thanksgiving, perform your vows to the most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble, and I will deliver you, and you will glorify Me.” So: (1) Call on Me (2) I will deliver you (3) you will glorify Me. That’s the pattern of life. (1) Call (2) Receive (3) Glorify. And if your people learn that rhythm: (1) Call every day. Call on Him, ask Him for everything. Talk to Him continually, cry out. We love to say at Bethlehem, „What shall we render to the Lord, for all His blessings to us? We will call upon the name of the Lord!!! What a deal! You wanna pay me back? Ask for more! Because I am strong, and I get glory by being wealthy to my poverty stricken people. So, prayer is such a gift. So, personally, have your place, have your time. Don’t let anything take you from it. Kneel every day. There’s no big trick in that. (It’s) just something happens when the body says, once a day, „This too Lord (my body), I’m going low Lord, before You with my body.” I’m just gonna say it that way, too. Fasting and feasting. Both are good, neither has any rules on how long, or how much. It’s a good thing. And then, one of the hardest things we face is building a praying church, and a corporate praying church. And, Bethlehem is no great model. We’ve just tried over and over again to put prayer all over the place, and then to encourage the staff to be at one of those, or two of those, or three of those. I have, probably for 20 years, been to 5 prayers a week. 30 minute prayer meetings. Sounds big, it’s not big, because 3 of those are before services. Show up early and pray with 5 or 20 people, before service, for 30 minutes. And then, Tuesday morning and Friday morning, those are my prayer times with people. And, it makes a huge difference to pray with people. And then, model it from the pulpit. People don’t know how to pray, they don’t know how to feel when they pray, they don’t know what to say. But, if they hear you pray every week like a broken hearted, needy sinner, counting on God, crying out to a Father who loves you, they’ll learn how to pray. They will. And God will do mighty things, in answer to prayer.
  5. Trust every day that God cares for you, and will work for your good. Humble yourselves (1 Peter 5)  under the mighty hand of God, that in a due season (not now), in a due season He may exalt you, casting (and I think the participle means that the casting is an expression of humility), casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you. So, keeping your anxieties for yourself is pride. Humble yourself (by) casting your anxieties away, on Him. He’s got shoulders that can handle them, and He won’t be the least burdened by them. If you keep them, you’re proud. It is proud to be anxious. You look weak, and you look frightened, and you look like a puppy, and all nervous, and you’re not, you’re proud. Because you’re not saying, „Ok, You want them, here they are.” And you give them to the Lord. (16:00)

I’m gonna close, and I’m gonna give examples of how God’s been faithful to me:

(1) The excorcism. After the 1st or 2nd year here, I got a call that, „We have a demon possessed girl in this room, we want you to come.” (Up to that time) I had never in my life encounter a demon possessed person. I called Bob Stellar, cause the Bible says, „Go out, two by two.” I believed that, and we went together, at about 10 o clock at night. We were there ‘til, probably 1 in the morning, and she was ‘a gorilla’ with a knife, a little pen knife. So I kept on my coat, because I thought she could stick the winter coat (it was winter), and it wouldn’t do too much damage. And she’s walking around just – (sticking the knife) at people. And these were young Bethel students, unbelievably anointed and fearless, because they just stood there, they wouldn’t let her out. They were standing at the door, not letting her out, and she had a knife. She sounded like a (makes gruffy sounds). To make a long, horrible story short, about 2 hours later she’s passed out on the floor. We sang over her for about half an hour. She screamed for Satan to not leave her, went unconscious on the floor, as far as I could tell. (I thought) Did we kill her? I’ve never experienced something like that before. This is what you get handed, right? And she woke up, her face looked totally different, voice totally different, She had knocked the Bible out of my hands half a dozen times, as I was trying to read the Bible. I handed her the Bible, and asked her to read all of Romans 8. She did. She was in church the next Sunday, on the second row, scared to death that she was going to go wild in the service. She was resoundingly converted. She was in the church 6 more months, broke her leg playing soccerI visited her in the hospital and had long talks about what was behind all this. And if I could tell you her story you would not believe what she had done. But, God comes to me, and I’m a zero educated person, when it comes to demon possession and deliverance. What did I have? MY BOOK!!!! I knew, I knew that  I didn’t have anything. But, right here is power. I just kept reading it, and reading it, and reading it. And then, we just sang it. We took the tune „Aleluia, Aleluia’, and we put new words- ‘Jesus is Lord, Jesus is Lord’, ‘He is coming, He is coming’… someone would throw in another Bible truth and she went absolutely berserk and was delivered. God was faithful.

(2) A prodigal. My son came home one night (I won’t tell you which one), 15 years old, and he was an hour later than I had told him, I had waited up for him, „I said, „What happened?” And he lied to me. I didn’t know it at the time. In the morning he was gone. So, my son ran away. This is Friday morning, sermon preparation day.  I’m at home with him alone, Noel and the kids are gone. It’s just me and him. He’s gone. He left me a note under his pillow. „I love you, and I let you down, again. Don’t worry. I’m okay. Another city.” I wasn’t too worried, frankly, except: He’s gone! What do you do? How do you preach? How do you get a sermon ready? This is life guys. This is what you’re dealt with. And, I made the decision, knowing him, I wouldn’t call the police. He knows what he’s doing. I didn’t think he was suicidal, or anything like that. Big judgment call. And I prepared my sermon. I have no idea what I preached on. And I called one man, one guy, and I said, „This is the situation, pray with me, don’t know what to do.” (I) walked into church from behind, looking, maybe he’ll be here. You’re preaching under these c… He wasn’t, and on Monday I called the school and asked, „Is my son in class?” They said, „Yes.” „I’m his dad, I wanna see him now”. So I drove to the school. And he’s walking down the hall, and I’m walking out of the principal’s office, and he just starts to weep on my shoulder. God is faithful. And we had the longest, best talk that night…

(3) The spiritual gifts battle– trying so hard to be a bonafide noncessationist. To be open to all the good things God has given us. And crazies come out of the woodwork, and people give you false prophecy that just about devastates you, and God is faithful. I didn’t throw it away, I didn’t despise prophesying, but, I sure am cautious, because we got some of the weirdest stuff happen in the late 80’s, because we were trying so hard. And, I encourage you to try hard. „Earnestly desire spiritual gifts, especially that you may propehsy.” They are all for the upbuilding of the church. Don’t let them tear anything to shreds. And don’t let them make you bitter and ugly, which was my temptation. Because when a lawyer prophesied over me that my wife would die in childbirth, and my next child would be a girl, and you’re weeping your eyes out saying, „God, is that what you’re giving me?” And a boy was born, and she didn’t die- so- a false prophet.

(4) The moral failure in our church in ’92 and ’93 is the biggest challenge we ever faced, and God wonderfully got us through that

(5) The worship wars were hard, and He brought us through that

And so, the last point is TRUST HIM, trust Him. Cast all your anxieties on Him. He cares for you. Last verse:

„Let him who serves, serve in the strength that God supplies, so that in everything, God will get the glory, through Jesus Christ. To Him be dominion forever, and ever.” Amen

John Piper – Lust is as Powerful as Drunkenness

photo via charleston.thedigitel.com

From SoundCloud Ask Pastor John:

Pastor John, in a previous podcast, you expressed how important deep and rich theology is in the fight against porn addiction and lust. (That was the theme in podcast #18), and I want to revisit this and look more closely at how Christian men can serve each other. What would you say to a man, who has friends committed to helping him win, in the battle against lust and porn addiction?

Piper:

I’ve been thinking a lot, recently, about Paul’s text in 1 Corinthians 9, where it says he pummels his own body. The word is literally ‘gives his body a black eye’. He says, „I don’t box beating the air, in other words, I know where to land my punches. And he’s talking about the sins in his life that need to be punched out, that need to be put to death. And so, he’s talking about a kind of self denial, and a kind of self opposition, that stands up and pokes himself, and I think he’s just extending Jesus’s words, where he says, „If your eye causes you to sin, tear it out.” Well, that’s a pretty good punch, you know, to the eye, taking your eye out. And, if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. Now, we know that’s not meant to be literal, because he says, „If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out. Well, you’ve got your left eye left over, and you can see the naked woman just as well with your left eye, as your right eye. So, we know that the literal tearing out of the right eye wouldn’t solve the problem. He means, ‘Be as vigilant and as forceful in your opposition of sin as you need to be, in order to kill it in your life.

Noe, here’s my new wondering. Why, why does lust, with seeing- I am thinking mainly men, but not just men.. Why does seeing have such a force, to draw us to click on pornography, or to linger over some bathing suit issue of Sports Illustrated, or to linger over some ad for a movie. What is it about us? And, as I’ve tried to analyze my own body, over the years, I’ve got this phrase, that I use: psychoerotic euphoria. I made that up. Psychoerotic euphoria. What I mean is, I don’t know what it is, or where it is, somewhere localized in the body- it can get localized, but it isn’t localized usually.

But, it’s just like power, in your body, that makes you so pleased by the erotic, by the visual, that you are moving toward it visually with such force, that it starts to nullify moral conviction, and puts you out of touch with all the arguments you had before to be pure, and moves you into behavior that, then, later you are going to disapprove of. What in the world is that like? And my answer is: It’s like drunkenness.

If you go into a bar, supposing, I’m just making this up. Suppose you go to a bar with a buddy, „We’re gonna witness for Jesus tonight,” at the bar. And you’re just sitting there, and this guy that you’re with starts drinking. Then he drinks too much and he gets drunk. And you say, „Well, this is obviously not working, we’ll never win anybody for Jesus. We just disobeyed Jesus by getting drunk, so we’re gonna go out of here,” and he grabs his arm, and, „We’re leaving.” And he’s the one who drove tonight. And so, he wants to drive, and go down and watch a movie downtown, while he’s drunk. And you say, „You’re not driving, I’m not gonna let you drive. I’m driving, I’m gonna drive this car. You bend his arm behind his back and throw him in the back seat, and grab his key, and since he’s your friend, he doesn’t hit you. And you drive him home and you throw him in bed. That’s a lot of manhandling, for a drunken guy. Is that right? Should we do that? And, I think most people would say, „Yeah! Yeah, you should do that. I mean, he was drunk, he was gonna kill himself.”

And, my question is: Is there something like that, that we should do for each other? If this psychoerotic euphoria is as powerful as drunkenness, and I think it is, do we need people in our lives to break our arm? Not just… Paul says, „I pummel my own body..” I’m saying, „You should pummel me.” You know, we often talk about accountability relationships. And a lot of people get all bent out of shape about legalism, and „You’re supposed to love Jesus from your heart, and you should not have to be constrained.” Look! If you’re drunk, and you’re about to kill yourself, you better be glad somebody’s in your life, to throw you in the back seat of a car, and later on, when you wake up, you be glad they did. And then, you can pray yourself into some kind of appropriate stance, where you obey freely from your heart.

But, this lust thing is much more like drunkenness, than it is like anything else, and so we may need this kind of personal accountability, where we have some kind of connection, some kind of special number on our cell phone, some way to push a button and say, „Knock me out, if you have to, in the next half hour, because I’m about to lose it because of this psychoerotic euphoria, that’s come over me like drunkenness. So, I’m just throwing that out there to guys. I’m saying: Compare it in your life, analyze your own soul, to see whether the sheer physical, erotic, psycho nature of this power is enough like drunkenness, where you would put a thing in your life like „drive this home”.

Yeah, I can see how this would apply to a brother, stumbling in sin in our presence, so much of pornography and lust however, is a private struggle in the darkness of isolation. How does this principle work out there?

Piper:I’m saying, when Hebrews 3:13 says, „Exhort one another every day, as long as it is called today, lest there be in you an evil heart of unbelief.” You would extend that out and say, „Perhaps, throw one another in a cold shower, every now and then, so that there won’t be an acted out heart of an inebriated psychoerotic drunkenness in a person’s life. If a guy is fighting a losing battle, and most of the guys, or gals, know who they are. „I know I’m supposed to fight this, I’m supposed to win this, but, I’m regularly losing this battle.” If they know that, they need to say that to their small group. And then, one idea would be, „I’m gonna put your number at the top of my favorites on my iPhone. It will take one punch, and I want you to give my number a special ringer on your phone.” And, the only time he ever hits that number is when he needs me to intervene. And so, you get on the phone, and you say, „Stand up, go outside in the snow.” Or, I’m coming over right now.” You just have it worked out, just the way you would if he were an alcoholic, and he would say, „You know, I’m just moving towards this bottle on my wall. I don’t know what it is. I want you to come smash my bottle for me.” I mean, it’s that weird,

Why else would Jesus say things like, „Cut your eye out.” I mean, that’s just wild. Oh, if someone says, „Oh, putting a special number on the phone, that’s wild.” Really? (As wild as) Take a screwdriver and poke it in your face? That’s not wild? So, I’m saying, When Hebrew 3:13 says, „But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” lest there be in you an evil heart of unbelief.” You would extend that out and say, „Perhaps, throw one another in a cold shower, so that there won’t be an acted out heart of inebriated psychoerotic drunkenness person’s life.

About the Book

Doctrine Matters is the theological summary of one preacher’s lifetime of investment in a local church. Completing three decades of pastoral ministry at Bethlehem Baptist, John Piper gave a final sermon series on the doctrinal emphases from his years of preaching. These ten emphases, delivered as ten sermons in 2012 and now edited into this volume, embody the legacy Piper hopes to leave.

But don’t think that these messages are the memoirs of a retired pastor. You don’t store these truths away to collect dust. The vision of God in these pages doesn’t take a pat on the head—it turns the world upside down.

These doctrines are, as Piper says, “wildly untamable, explosively uncontainable, and electrically future-creating.” They make a difference. When you read these truths and immerse yourself in this biblical vision of our great God, you will want to act. You will want to build something. You will want to start things. You will be compelled to dream big and risk bigger for the glory of Jesus Christ. And we pray for nothing less.
