Teddy’s bad.

Sunday, August 26, 2001

This is not NVTD, but the seared conscience results in thinking lightly, or not taking seriously, the word of the Lord (Bible doctrine) resulting in the influence of evil.

Three Psalms describe the rebound of David, Psa 32, Psa 38, Psa 51.

When your conscience has been defiled and seared, it’s always someone else’s fault and you’re blinded to your own flaws and blinded by arrogance.

taken away (hiphil stem) perfect – abar = to cause to pass over or to cause to pass by, or to cause to remove.

Divine discipline is not “payment” for sin! Divine discipline is to get the believer back in fellowship with God.

PSA 99:8Lord our God, Thou didst answer them; Thou wast a forgiving God to them, And {yet} an avenger of their evil deeds.”

David’s rebound came in the nick of time because had he continued living with a seared conscience, he would have died the sin unto death, PSA 118:18.

The Lord gave Saul over unto death, 1CH 10:13, but not David.

LUK 15:28 – He became angry because his father had forgiven his younger brother who was lost and had been found.

MAT 11:25Jesus said, I praise Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou didst hide these things from the wise and intelligent and didst reveal them to babes.”

MAT 21:16Jesus said Have you never read, Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babes Thou hast prepared praise for Thyself’?”

The first thing that a person thinks of in a situation like that, is that God is mad at them.

Once you are under the control of a seared conscience you dont have to have a lot of discipline to hurt; you are so pre-occupied with yourself and so hypersensitive that everything hurts.

David cannot stand the thought of what he has done because of the mental pressures of the guilt complex.

David had become so obsessed with “himself” and his our own guilt that it hindered him from functioning in life properly.

Obsession with self keeps the believer from God’s plan and occupation with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Either the believer’s ignorance of Bible doctrine or the believer’s failure to believe the doctrine that has already been taught.

God never changes, MAL 3:6; He is immutable.

GEN 3:10And he said, I heard the sound of Thee in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.”

As in the garden under the first mention principle, guilt drives us from the presence of God.

Guilt produces fear and shame and causes us to hide from the very one that can give us victory over our guilt.

ZEC 2:8for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.

ISA 62:3We are His crown of glory.”

COL 1:22we are before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach” COL 2:10 “and in Him you have been made complete,”

Confess = hiphil imperfect – naad to confess, to acknowledge, to announce, to declare.

Awon = the many sins and iniquities that David got himself involved in; civil, criminal and social violations = sin plus arrogance.

Anxiety = Qal imperfect – daag = to be troubled, to be anxious, to be concern, to be uneasy.

maskil = hiphil imperfect -sakal = to understand what you have been motivated to learn.

forgiven Qal passive participle nasa to be forgiven, to have something lifted off of you and wiped out.

There can never be any blessing or happiness for any believer until he realizes that all of his sins have been forgiven and covered.

God is the judge and the jury, and the only thing that impresses Him is truth or the mind of Christ, which only says confess.

Confession is not feeling sorry for sin but acknowledging or citing a sin which has already been judged on the cross.

To try to make up for what God the Son bore on the cross [your sin], and for what God the Father judged on the cross [your sin], is not only blasphemy, but total arrogance.

Only Ak = surely, or just, absolutely, no doubt and nothing added to it.
