Pastor Keion (00:01):
Oh, I am talking to somebody here today. Oh, now it’s time to go in. This year, the only thing I want fight is something worth fighting for. What am I talking about? I’m talking about patterns. I’m talking about patterns. I’m talking about every time you get in an argument, you’re thinking about divorce because that’s what you, Lord, help me in this place. See, most of us, we didn’t get divorced because we were upset. We got divorced because that was the family pattern. Because if the pattern was you stay, you would’ve Patterns. Patterns. Patterns. You eat bacon. That’s a pattern.
Now you’re trying to break the pattern. Talking about you a vegan still eating steak. Let me tell you something. I’m so tired of you part-time vegans. I don’t know what to do either you’re going to be one or you ain’t going to be one. I’m a vegan, but I eat. No, no. Everything after but is you, ain’t it? I’m a pescatarian. That eats chicken sometime. Huh? This woman is not guilty by reason of insanity. That’s why Jesus didn’t put her to death because she was under the control of a demon. She’s under the control of a demon. Now looks at it. Verse two and three says that when Jesus was in the temple teaching them and they interrupted him, remember he’s up there teaching. Alright? Today we’re going to talk about the law. The 10 laws. Thou shall not kill, thou shall not steal. Thou shall not commit adultery. Jesus, since we’re on the subject of adultery, we had found this woman caught in the very act of adultery. Now, my question for you is, if Jesus is in the temple and they have a woman caught in the act of adultery in the temple with her, is this an accident or is this a sting operation?
Yeah, they done planned this already. So they say now the reason why they do this is because if Jesus does stone her to death, then he messes up his reputation. If he does not, then he breaks the law. So they are actually not after her. They’re actually after him. Can I tell you something in this place today that the devil will come after everything in your life because he’s actually trying to get to you. But I want to tell you, no weapon formed against you. Oh, I can’t get no church in here today. No weapon formed against you shall be able to prosper. Touch your name and say it won’t work. It won’t work.
If you got a pen, write this down. Jesus says, he’s in the temple. He’s teaching. They interrupted him while he was teaching Jesus. We caught this woman in the act of adultery. Jesus is teaching and they interrupted the class. Can I give you the definition of a hater? The definition of a hater. Now remember, Jesus is teaching. They interrupt his class to try to teach him. The definition of a hater is somebody who’s teaching when they should be learning. That’s what you need to understand about the people who are always hating on you, what they saying, what they’re trying to teach you, they should actually be learning from you. That’s all. A hater is a hater is a confused friend. It’s somebody who really admires you, but they can’t admit they admire you. So they have to turn it because if I wasn’t worth anything, why am I worth your attention?
All of your haters are people who try to teach you, who don’t have the courage to learn from you while you hating on me. I could teach you how to dress because you look a mess while you hating on me. I could teach you how to raise your children. Yours are bad. If you would stop looking at me as a person who doesn’t have anything to offer and admit the fact that you like what I have to offer. Never trust anybody who wants to teach when they should be learning. Have you ever been around somebody? The moment you start telling them what God did for you, they got to interrupt you with their story. Lemme tell you what God did for me and for me too because let me tell you, you better get away. They jealous real friends that you have your moment. It’s your moment, it’s your time. We caught her in the act of adultery. Jesus says, okay, since y’all want to bring her sin up, y’all forgot I’m Jesus and I know everything and I know that y’all left part of John chapter eight out. So Jesus bends down in the ground and finishes chapter,
Speaker 2 (06:01):
And the Bible says he begins to write the names of the men who are at the crime scene. See, they ain’t never going to get away. They can leave themselves out, but Jesus going to write ’em in. Jesus starts to write their name and next to their name, he writes their sin and the Bible says this is what they did with they rock when they seen their name and their sin. I can’t wait until the day that the church will drop the rocks. I can’t wait until y’all drop your rocks. I’m going to stay right here, touch your name and say drop your rock. You ain’t got nothing to judge me on. We are both messed up. We are all to up. We all have sin. The church has to drop it’s rocks.
The Bible says from the eldest to the youngest. So the old fellas dropped their rock first, the senior statesmen all the way down to the rookies, everybody dropped their rocks. You know why? Because when you see your sin, isn’t it amazing When I’m preaching on Sunday, sometimes Carla, I’m preaching. And when I’m talking about stuff people don’t do. They going crazy. But when I get on they sin. I be preaching, talking about, oh, you shouldn’t do this. And they’d be like, yeah, and don’t get drunk. Yeah, and don’t do that. And you shouldn’t be living with people you ain’t married with.
And this is what’s messing up Christianity. It’s because no matter what the Bible says, now we go to what we feel. But it’s better to just have one income. And it don’t make sense if we’re going to be over each other house every day anyway for us to both be paying rent. So now we justify. And what’s wrong with the church Now, ain’t no such thing as sin. No more. Ain’t no sin. You just do whatever you want to do whenever you want to do it. The Lord know your heart. You ain’t got to get better. You just can keep doing whatever you want to do and you can pray. But you got to understand that you ain’t going to have no power.
At some point in time, you are going to have to turn over a new leaf. At some point in time, old things are going to have to pass away. And at some point in time, all things are going to become new. And by the way, you know why the people ain’t shouting today? Because they want a church that won’t rebuke ’em. You want a church where there is no rebuke, there is no reprove. A person just comes to church to tell you God loves you. Lemme tell you, God ain’t no Santa Claus. He’s a redeemer.
Some of those habits you’re going to have to drop. And that might mean dropping some people because some people are your habits. For those of you online, lemme tell you, only about 20% of the room is standing up right now. 80% of ’em done checked all the way out. I’m talking to you now. This is a problem. We can’t get better because we keep on erasing parts of the story. We keep coming to church and we keep showing up like that part of our life didn’t happen. And then you want to have a mentoring program, but you don’t want to be honest. Now you got five mentees, but you’re only telling them about the part where you made money. Can you tell ’em about the trap house? Can you tell ’em about the weed that was in your glove compartment when you got pulled over? Can you tell ’em about how many partners you wish you would not have been with? Can you tell ’em about your s t d, come and holler at your boy. Can you tell ’em about the time you got so drunk that you don’t know how you got home? And I’m not talking about last week, I’m talking about last year.
