AREN’T YOU GLAD JESUS STOOPED DOWN

JOHN 8:1-11

TEXT: NOW MOSES IN THE LAW COMMANDED US, THAT SUCH SHOULD BE STONED BUT WHAT SAYEST THOU?

WE OFTEN HERE PREACHERS PREACH ABOUT THIS PASSGAE OF SCRIPTURE BUT HOW MANY TIMES DO WE COMPARE OURSELVES WITH THIS WOMAN OF ADULTRY? WE ALL ARE EXAMPLES OF THE ADULTEROUS WOMAN.

WE ALL AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER HAVE BEEN IN AN ADULTRIOUS STATE OF MIND

I DON’T CARE IF YOU ARE THE MOST HOLY AND SANCTIFIED PERSON IN THIS CHURCH.

WE ALL HAVE BEEN RIGHT WHERE THIS WOMAN WAS AT ONE POINT OR ANOTHER IN OUR LIFE.

WE ALL HAVE TURNED FROM OUR FIRST LOVE, JESUS CHRIST.

SIN IS DISPLEASING TO GOD AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. SO WE ALL ARE IN THIS WOMAN SHOES.

NOW YOUR WIFE MAY THINK THAT YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH AND YOUR CHILDREN MAY THINK THAT YOU CAN MAKE THE WORLD STOP WITH JUST YOUR PRESENCE. BUT IN GODS EYES YOU ARE STILL SOMEONE WHO AT ONE POINT OR ANOTHER BEEN CAUGHT IN AN ADULTEROUS STATE OF MIND.

SO TODAY I WANT YOU TO PUT YOUR SELF IN THIS WOMAN POSITION.

BUT BEFORE WE GET INTO THE TEXT LETS DO A LITTLE HOUSE KEEPING TO SET THE STAGE OF THIS PARTICULAR STORY.

VERSE 1 SAYS THAT JESUS WENT UP TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES. THIS VERSE IS VERY IMPORTANT.

I REMEMBER IN SCHOOL IF A TEACHER GAVE A PAPER ASSIGNMENT AND SAID IT HAD TO BE A PARTICULAR NUMBER OF WORDS WE WOULD ADD IRRELEVANT SENTENCES TO MAKE IT LONGER.

BUT THE WORD OF GOD DON’T NEED ANY FILL- INS IT WILL STAND WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE IS GONE.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IN THE LAST DAYS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH SHALL PASS AWAY BUT MY WORD SHALL STAND, NEVER EVER CHANGING.

AFTER STUDYING THIS MOUNTAIN WE SEE THAT THIS PARTICULAR MOUNTAIN WAS ALMOST LIKE A HOME FOR JESUS CHRIST. IT WAS THE HIGHEST LAND OVER LOOKING JERUSALEM

THE BOOK OF LUKE SAY HE TAUGHT THERE

HE PRAYED THERE AND AT THE BASE OF THIS MOUNTAIN IN AGONY HE PRAYED AGAIN THERE THE NIGHT BEFORE HIS CRUCIFIXION IN THE GARDEN OF GASEMANEE

THEN HE DESCENDED BACK TO HEAVEN ON THIS SAME MOUNTAIN.

NOTICE THAT THE BIBLE NEVER SAID ANYWHERE ABOUT A HOUSE FOR JESUS.

JESUS SAID IN MATTHEW 8:20 THE FOXES HAVE HOLE THE BIRDS THE NEST BUT THE SON OF MAN HAVE NOWHERE TO LAY HIS HEAD.

IT’S AMAZING HOW JESUS USED A SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES AS A FOUNDATION TO TEACH SUCH VALUBLE LESSONS

THROUGH THIS JESUS CHRIST SHOWED THAT HE IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

THIS ADULTEROUS WOMAN WAS CAUGHT IN THE ACT. SHE WAS SHAME, AFRAID, ALONE, CONFUSED, AND REGRETFUL.

SHED MESSED UP. DONE SOMETHING THAT SHE KNEW WAY DOWN INSIDE WAS WRONG.

SHE WAS AWARE OF THE LAW. BUT SHE TOOK A CHANCE ANY WAY.

SINCE THIS WOMAN WAS CAUGHT IN THE ACT THEY PROBABLY DIDN’T LET HER PUT ON ANY CLOTHES.

SHE WAS NAKED, EMBARRASSED, AND EXPOSED. SIN WAS HANGING OVER HER HEAD AND THE DEVIL WAS LAUGHING ALL THE WAY UP THE MOUNTAINSIDE AS THEY DRUG THIS WOMAN TO JESUS. SATAN ALWAYS LOVES TO SEE US IN TROUBLE

HE WILLLL WHISPER TO YOU AND TELL YOU THINGS RIGHT UNTIL THE EXPOSURE COMES. THEN THE DEVIL LEAVES US ALL ALONE.

YOU SEE THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOD AND SATAN THE DEVIL WONT STICK IN THERE WHEN THINGS GET ROUGH BUT JESUS SAID I’LL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU EVEN UNTIL THE END OF THE EARTH.

DAVID SAID THE LORD IS MY LIGHT WHOM SHALL I FEAR.

EV HILL BRIDGE STORY

*NOW LETS GO BACK TO THE 2ND VERSE

AND EARLY IN THE MORNING HE CAME INTO THE TEMPLE AND ALL THE PEOPLE CAME UNTO HIM AND HE SAT DOWN AND TAUGHT THEM. AND THE SCRIBE AND THE PHARISEES BROUGHT UNTO HIM A WOMAN TAKEN INTO ADULTERY. AND WHEN THEY HAD SET HER IN THE MIDST. THEY SAID UNTO HIM MASTER THIS WOMAN WAS TAKEN ADULTERY IN THE VERY ACT.

SOMEBODY SAY. DON’T JUDGE MY FUTURE BY MY PAST.

SOME OF US HAVE BEEN STUCK IN THE PAST AND SOMETIMES NEED TO BE REMINDED THAT GOD HAS ALREADY DELIVERED.

ALREADY SET US FREE.

LIKE A WRESTLING MATCH.

WHETHER YOU ARE THE ABUSED OR THE ABUSER, THE USER OR THE SELLER, THE LIAR OR THE ONE LIED ON

DON’T JUDGE YOUR FUTURE BY THE PAST!

I REALIZE THAT SOMETIMES EVEN WHEN YOUR BORN AGAIN YOUR PAST HAS A WAY OF CATCHING UP WITH YOU

WE MAY STRUGGLE OVER ISSUES OF THE PAST WHETHER IT’S DIVORCE, MOLESTATION, RAPE; GOD WANTS US TO PUT OUR PAST BEHIND US ONCE AND FOR ALL.
