More on this later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is Alan Wright decided that good, and he knew what he needed to do. He was going to move to Yosemite and climb rocks and get some little job there and so Harry is making the worst decision of his life and he decided that since he become friends with Randy. He go by Randy's house and tell him I'm going to be heading out on site by site goes by the knocks on the door on a Sunday morning and a groggy Randy comes to the door and and Bob said that he was going to head to Yosemite and so forth and Randy said are you going soon and he said yeah actually I'm headed out right now is that I just want to come on Sam enjoy our friendship and say body and rinse it will get to hang on just a second limit is check on something and Randy was gone for a few minutes and came back to the door and he had a tattered backpack and a sleep under his arm and he said Bob I'm with you the way me is that I'm go with you. I'm with you right now is that you so I got into Bob's VW bug.
Bob said he had $75 to red bandannas and some climbing shoes, and off they went to Yosemite and sees how they didn't have any money. That night they snuck into the back of a big tent that set up at the national Park. Post to pay the bill asleep and stuck in the back of that and slept there in the next day they ate some breakfast at the cafeteria and the national Park and Bob when Nancy said listen had to get a job flipping pancakes or washing dishes.
I need some workplace.
No no work so I went climb some rocks and I spent the next night and the next day Bob said he went looking for more jobs.
He went to the Rockclimbing Outfitting Gear Pl. in Ashford. They said no, no, and set it very much.
Check with every since he could find in the Yosemite Valley and evidently there was no work there for junior high school dropout with a red bandanna and so the sun was setting and there leaning up against the VW bug in Bob said the Randy said he announcing to be found in any work, and Randy.
So Bob, I'm with you said you know you and try some more places and Bob said you know what I think I will do look like I struck out I'm down to just a few dollars.
I got his head back and finish out high school ring is Bob. I'm with you, so they go back and when I got back to two Randy's house. I went inside and would drop in office things and Bob said it was odd because he noticed that there were some half opened presents lying around as a microwave oven half open timeline. There place pots and everything is a follow what what is it any said Bob's girlfriend was there at the house. Am I me that I Randy's girlfriend was Angie.
Randy came in and said hey honey, welcome home and Bob said he was trying to figure out this whole situation all assignment made sense to him. Here's what he wrote. I felt both sick and choked up in an instant.
I realize that these were wedding present on the floor. Randy and his girlfriend is gotten married when I knocked on Randy's door on that Sunday morning.
Randy didn't say just a high school kid who disrupted the beginning of his marriage is all kid is about the jump attracts status been in the early days of his marriage with his bride. He spent with me sneaking into the back of the tent while because Randy loved me. He saw the need and he did something about it didn't just say he was for me or with me is actually present with me. What I learned from Randy change my view, permanently about what it meant to have a friendship with Jesus. I learned faith isn't about knowing all the right stuff or obeying a list of rules is something more, something more costly because it involves being present making a sacrifice I'm saying is that Luke four Isaiah 61 proves Jesus isn't repelled by your folly.
He's drawn. He says Alan come with you is not so much this image that people have of this judge.
That's always measuring whether you're doing right or wrong. He is at his nature. Father friend, the creator of the universe is with you incredible implication from Jesus starting his ministry, quoting Isaiah 61 and this means that the nature of the ministry of Jesus in its essence is a ministry of mercy that there is a longing in the heart of God to forgive sin, the desire to show compassion rather than resentment and love rather than hate, and is never been a time in which is more important that we really understand this. It was so much hate in the world and the idea that anybody would attribute to the message of the Christian gospel hate is absolutely the farthest thing from who Jesus really is who he is one who just loves even those who who are against him activists, the ones that are captivated by sin. The ones that are oppressed of the devil. These are the very ones who don't know Jesus in his liberty, and often absolutely against Jesus and yet his love is so great in his mercy so rich that he belongs to forgive. He he came knowing that he was dying for his enemies. This is the anointing of the Holy Spirit likely to be praying for Asia BB not her birth name, but by what the name by which is come to be known, a Pakistani Christian woman who in nation that whose laws declared to be a capital offense. If you blaspheme the Prophet Mohammed. Let that sink in when you don't realize the persecution of Christians in Pakistan is still a law speak words against the Prophet Mohammed and you will be hung to death and she was in the field gathering berries with two Muslim women.
If you are in Pakistan as a Christian today you will probably be no more than a trash collector or a sewage worker household servant, or maybe as Asia, BB, a servant in the field put you into a Catholic, but you can't get beyond this Christian and many Christians there love Jesus and there's very few of them, but they they meet in church and they love worshiping God together and there was some sort of conversation that took place in the field and which Asia affirmed Jesus and the two women accused her of speaking blasphemy against Mohammed and she was incarcerated she said of the day that she was put into 8 x 10 cell of solitary confinement, with no windows and hearing the crowd. She said I I no longer see them but I still hear them. The crowd who gave the judge a standing ovation. St. kill her kill her. Although Akbar the courthouse is invaded by you for a keyboard who break down the doors chanting vengeance for the holy prophet, all is great and she said I was then thrown like old rubbish into the van, I lost all humanity in their eyes and for the better part of a decade. She has been incarcerated. This condemned woman as the appeals been going through the long dragged out corrupt system of court during the time of this there at least two government officials that tried to stand up for her costar market, a Pakistani governor was vocal in defense of her and his opposition to the blasphemy law and he was assassinated in 2011 Pakistani minority affairs minister shot Bob's body told reporters. One time that he was committed to the principles of justice was willing to die fighting for Asia's release and he also was assassinated in 2011, the citizenry wants her killed and the Supreme Court this past week found her innocent of blasphemy and acquitted her, but there's been so much upheaval by riotous gangs blocking the thoroughfares and demanding that she be beheaded that the government has agreed that they would do a review of the verdict, which in the past has been shown to take years and I just bring this up as I please pray for her, but also to say you see the vets will have more teaching moment from today's important series. This is what I will restore the fortunes of Jacob's times compassion on his dwellings.
The city will be built on her powers.
In its proper place.

Today's teaching now continues here once again is Alan writing this woman who didn't even actually blaspheme Mohammed according to your own record. But even if she had her killed.
What did Jesus do when those around him spoke against him and cursed him or blasphemed him think of three instances I think first of Peter beloved Peter you know that the third time Peter denied Jesus that third time before the rooster crowed that Greek scholars make it clear the third time Peter cursed as he denied Jesus. He said I don't know like like man blasphemed Jesus and denied him. What is Jesus doing something like that.
He rose from the dead, and he said to the women. Go tell the disciples and Peter. Don't forget Peter, I want to give Peter an embrace. I don't don't don't leave Peter out. Don't let him think that because he denied me and blasting me that he's left out.
I can't wait to see Peter and he reinstated Peter and Peter preached a Pentecost sermon was Jesus when people are against him. I think of Passover night, the Last Supper, the new foreshore. Judas was going to betray him that night and he still took the towel in the basin and knelt and washed his betrayers feet. What is Jesus do when he hung on the cross and he was being crucified in the most tortuous form of execution known in history and where he has almost no breath left because he is suffocating and can no longer sustain his weight so that the diaphragm can work and he can get a breath he decides to take the little bit of rest that he has laughed and said father forgive them. I don't know what they're doing. The anointing of Jesus is an anointing of forgiveness. It is anointing of mercy and the more you have this same anointing of the Holy Spirit in your life you start realizing you don't want to live your life by resentment. You don't want to be propelled by any form of hatred for God is love and God's forgiveness and the power of the gospel since captives free by the shed blood of Jesus, wherein anyone can be say what it is to be one more implication of this that he began his ministry this way from Isaiah 61 in Luke four it means that he is anointed in the sense of there being a special power or capacity of grace for someone who is truly hungry for God. He says elsewhere. Jesus does that a physician doesn't come for the healthy but for the sick, and I take this to mean that God loves every person in the power and grace of God is for any person who wants to receive him, but is only those who know that they need him that. Actually, appropriate or experience the wonder majesty and power of that grace is sort of like saying I have every every illustration fall short, but is sort of like saying that if if if someone takes an antibiotic and their already healthy and don't have an infection for the antibiotic doesn't do anything for them. But if you have a life-threatening illness that could be treated by an antibiotic and you take the antibiotic you experience the power and the grace of antibiotic hand. What this means is that as odd as it seems your best qualification for receiving from God is your need for God a W toes or put it plainly, God waits to be wanted when I was a kid my preacher had several times a friend of his. Come preacher. I didn't realize till later, was quite famous Maj. Ian Thomas and one time Ian Thomas was speaking to a minister's gathering and he said to the ministers.
What does God expect from you and all the ministers try to give their best theological answers and some said obedience and some said servant hood and some said giving and some said you know all these different things. He let him finish making a set will what what do you believe God expects from us and he smiled and said failure may mean by that of prophetic utterance that you're going be a failure.
What he meant was that you got understand the love of God is so great that he already knew that Peter was going to deny him and he loved me already knows the ways you might mess up this week and he loves you and is with you is drawn to you and he is compassionate for you. Do not disqualify yourself for your great sin or your small send the blood of Jesus has come to cover every sand so that you would be utterly and completely set free a look over there, and not only has Sam dropped the wafers, but he's down there picking them up and I look in this normally very serious, smart, PhD pastor who is been in this tense thing and now he's bungled the whole thing and I look over and if you ever had this happen to you. The worst moment for the happen he got tickled just that the Iranian irony of the whole thing. You know that he just had this debate in the present extinction of intention and is down here and he's the one that dropped the wafers and he's down there hiding his face under the table because he is laughing uncontrollably and I just thought you know what I'm glad it is not. I but if it had been. I want to remember Luke chapter 4 the spirit of the Lord is upon me, produces anointed me on account of which I'm proclaiming the good news to the people messing and that the gospel's teaching freedom for the hurting through gospel mercy. It's in our series titled unleased and Alan is back with this adjustable maturing a party. Good news thought for the day with us. This is what the facts I will restore the fortunes of Jacob's times and have compassion on his dwellings. The city will be rebuilt on her lens powers. In its proper place.
