God has an encouraging word for you would be today. The Bible-based teaching of Dr. Don Wilton on today's edition of the curtain were they were headed in Romans eight as Dr. Don Wilton continued discussing and teaching about the impact of the spirit. More details on our website as well. DEW now Dr. Don Wilton think something very negative with me for a moment, just very negative. I want you to imagine with me for just one moment that God made a decision and the decision that God made was to take his hand off America to abandon us. I want you to just imagine as difficult a disease for for us to do so.

I want you to just think for a moment what would happen to this country if the Spirit of God was no longer present.

If we were just left to our own destiny. Our own wisdom, and our families, our lives, our businesses bringing up our children sending out troops overseas. All the things that we knew no spirit no God. I want to speak to you today on the impact of the spirit, I'm going to read three passages of Scripture and I urge you to follow along with me in your Bible because I do not believe that there is a more significant subject. John's Gospel chapter 16 in verse eight, which was where we were lost week.

John 16 in verse I Jesus said that when the spirit comes he will convict the world of duty in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment that I can still hear those pages turning and I beg your pardon, but I must move on Romans chapter 8 where we will resume our study. When God gives me permission to do it. Romans chapter 8 and verse nine. Turn there with me. Book of Romans chapter 8 verse nine. Listen to what God said. You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the spirit if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you body is dead because of sin. Your spirit is alive because of God's righteousness and the spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Jesus Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you not turn to first Corinthians chapter you must turn to this passage.

This is absolutely critical.

First Corinthians in the second chapter said what God see this one of first Corinthians chapter when I came to you both said I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaim to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you accepting Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness and fear and with much trembling by message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power so that faith might risk not only means wisdom, but on God's power. We do not, however, speak a message of wisdom among the book.

Mature but not the wisdom of this age or in the rulers of this age who come to nothing.

We speak of God's secret wisdom I wisdom that has been hidden and that God destine for glory before time began. None of the rulers of the site understood if I had, they would not have crucified Christ the Lord of glory. However, as it is written, though I have seen, no ear is heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him, but God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God for who among men knows the thoughts of man. Accepting the man who spirit with him and him in the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world, but the spirit is from God that we might understand what God has freely given us this is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words, the man without the spirit does not accept the things that come from the spirit of God, for they are foolishness unto him, and he cannot understand them because they are spiritually discerned.

The spiritual man makes judgments about old things, but he himself is not subject to any man's judgment for who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him, but we because of the spirit have the mind of Christ take the spirit of God away. We were in trouble in our lives impact 2000 in America families this.

Number one because without this birthday will be no conviction. We understand that we looked at that lost week. You take the spirit of God, no conviction, no conviction concerning specific sin of unbelief. No conviction concerning our standard of righteousness. No conviction concerning outstanding judgment. Judgment according to John chapter 14 John chapter 16. Remember it is the Holy Spirit who confirms to us the lies of Satan. It's the Holy Spirit who teaches us and corrects us concerning the opinions of man, it's the Holy Spirit that conveys the truth of God to us. Well you take the spirit of God away no conviction when trouble number two because without the spirit they will be no power, you know, we live in a can-do generation. Don't even this week I have met with wonderful people who were desperate at the end of the line. I looked at them and said you can you know when we have little children that are just beginning to walk and we love that studies done before they get up in the legs are doing this and walking around like looking out for something and we sent you can do it. You can even use that potty training on how about on the potty training you can you not leave those diapers. We live in that you can generation in America today. Folks, we have become so impressed with our own ability that we just don't seem to get without the spirit of God. We have no power. We cannot do it.

We have no time to speak. About that he said I'm not allowed to speak. No power to preach all I'm going to be doing is just saying things to you.

They just kinda be words and pout. The witness asked chapter 1 of the site. God said that all that the Holy Spirit is come upon you, you will receive power to be my witnesses. The spirit then the power you folks what happened this week.

It's the power of God, the power of God to speak in the power to be who we are because Christ lives in you. Number three, number three why the spirit because without this birthday will be no understanding no understanding of folks listen carefully you take the spirit of God out of America. We cannot know the mind of God and we will not know what to do.

Why does the spirit of God, give us spiritual understanding.

While there are three very clear things in the Bible John chapter 14 in verse 26 is because he reminds us about the Lord Jesus member Jesus was talking to his disciples and he was telling them that he was about to leave and go to heaven.

He said I'm gonna save the comforter to you and then he showed all the things of the spirit was going to do in one of those in John's Gospel. He said listen, he said I want you to know that the spirit will remind you about me. One of the things that I love about this mom this weekend that we celebrate America. Sometimes we grow up as generations. We don't know what's going on and when things do happen we get away from it.

We are already forgetting about 911. Just a year or two or three of the people stood up together as soon concerning people getting left and right. I sent you a moment ago that I was on my way to the convention when this thing happened to me and it landed was another occasion as I was by myself. There was a group of men sitting around the table at the airport in uniform and I remember over the posterior. For years I've been at the airport on occasions and Gary in Spartanburg and somebody in uniform would get off the plane and people standing around with just right side folks, my babe chills running up and down my back go to the airport today and people don't do a single thing I'm not telling you what I'm telling you to impress you about Don Wilton. I walked up to that table with those men of high rank and I reached over and grabbed the checks they didn't know me from a bar of soap. This guy was probably special forces.

He was going to take me out and I grabbed my same servant, he said, what you doing I said Sir, would you mind I haven't had the privilege of being able to do what you doing for my country. One thing I can as I can pay for your meal. Just as an expression of my gratitude. I'd like to pick up the tab for all four of you around this type thank you very much and God bless you and me tell you that Col. stood up and I'm sure I detected moisture in his eyes and he looked at me and he said Sir he said I've done a lot of things in my life.

He said that is the kindest thing that's ever been done for me and it's an honor to serve my country folks listen to me listen to me the spirit of God reminds us of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, you take the spirit of God out.

You've got no means to be reminded of what God has done.

Number two nominee. Does he remind us, but he reveals to us.

First Corinthians 2 verse nine. Look at verse nine with me. The Bible says no eye has seen, no, no mind is concede what God has prepared for those who love him, but God has revealed this to us by his Spirit. So what is the spirit of God. This God not any reminds me about the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

But the spirit of God feels to me that put the mind of Christ and at the end of this chapter comes to a climactic experience and he says, guess what you the capability and the capacity to operate within the context of the mind of Christ can be plotted into the mind of Christ because God is spirit will make you the mind of Christ reveals it to us. He throws the light switch, he pulls back the darkness. He makes known to us the things of God. How desperately in America today.

We need to know the mind of the Lord Jesus Christ. Because if we don't know the mind of the Lord Jesus Christ.

This nation is due. I'm going to submit to you if we don't know the mind of the Lord Jesus Christ God is going to take his hand from among us and any type sees a man from among us. You are not albeit in our human brilliance. We have nothing in America outside of the spirit of God number three.

He relates to us all of this. She folks the spirit of God gives us understanding by reminding us by revealing to us and by relating it all to us. What does that mean when he tells us here. For example, in verse 14 that the man without the Spirit does not accept the things of God. They are foolishness to him he cannot understand.

You see the spirit of God folks types what God said is and applies it to each individual half that the word day to relate means that God by his spirit makes the application necessary for me and I've said many times before. From the scope I can get up there and preach about oranges and apples get published.

What is meant by the I will guarantee you today that worshiping with us.

Everyone that I might be preaching about the spirit, but I'll guarantee you there are many of us today. You got thoughts challenges encouragements blessings related to subject some nodding, preaching about how does God speaking to you right now about your family, but to give you, your health, about the problems that you have the joys your children preaching about children right now. How come you thinking about God is relating it to you. That's what the spirit of God. He makes application all right to take the spirit of God out without him there is no understand number four because without him there is no representation you got back turn with me to Romans very, very quickly, folks. Romans chapter 8 verse 26.

You've got to see this verse Romans 826 in the same way the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses.

We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express and he searches our hearts knows the mind of Christ, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with the go will of God. Now watch this. You take the spirit of God. Dr. got no representation that the word day means you have no representative. You've got nobody who has been elected by the only person who can electing nominating and electing to go to heaven. You see, he's not representing here in the United States of America. He's representing you before the throne of please forgive the eruption of joy to know that we have a representation in Jesus Christ. Oh my goodness more great insight from Dr. Wilton to come in just a moment we take a break to remind you of some wonderful points of connection with our phone at 86689 866-899-9670 but also on our where you'll discover great resources like this. Generations are lost the desire to be popular and accepted is an attractive lure.

It's a huge challenge to live in a way that is pleasing to our Lord is so easy to get off track but remember God is in control.

I look forward to receiving your testimony of how God use you to change the precious generations in your family. Now back to today's great teaching with Dr. Don Wilton how does he do that three ways, one Bible tells us to help so I represent very much like someone comes alongside of you and help you to walk up the stairs helped you to do something he helps, he gets along side it gives you a shoulder to lean on monitor monitor he in parts for us. He in parts for us folks I've screamed hours even this week with people, precious people who have needs you know people you are in me. Have you ever met someone who is instructionally gone through so many physical ailments you have struggled so many times you've visited so many doctors and quite frankly you just don't know what else to say to God you ever been there before. Maybe you have been treated terribly.

Families broken maybe maybe the whole world has been turned upside down and you've got so much and planning your heart. Quite frankly, folks, let's just take the gloves off, now let's be honest with each other just mad with God, you look around and you say what I call, why would God allow this to happen to me. Guess what, the spirit of God. Does this God types my groanings and puts them before Almighty God. That means that I believe with all my heart I can cry to my human frustration I can cite my mom this and I'm so tired of talking to God. I don't know what to say anymore. I cannot keep up on the date of my rope.

This spirit of God walks up to Almighty God. At the train of God and saves Lord God, let me just tell you something about going Wilton he's crying out to you right now and the spirit takes even my innermost frustrations as a believer and presents it to God.

Folks, he is my interpreter, he speaks only when I cannot speak and the third thing that he does. He not only helps us and interprets for us but he intercedes for us. One incredible food that the spirit of God intercedes for me that would be you want to remember the word intercedes. Just think of the word interception how football players and basketball players in baseball players you will understand there you not had that happen to me many times folks when I've stepped up to the plate and bore the crowds are going while and I will shopping at the top of the boy's bonbon Don and a 300,000 people out there my name is being flashed up on the screen and we're at the bottom of the eighth bases-loaded to ask and I'm and I step up and switch a little but two times just to make me feel better. I spoke with Michael the rest of the and whites and white boy that for school comes down to me.

Steve seen me do this and I hit that goal. It is like a book. The crowds and the manI have no idea what he thinks he's doing. He lives to his right. I mean he is stopping you lost Chris go. He knows about these things, he just stretches out there with a big bucket on the van and he catches the ball not just happen folks I but intercepted. I didn't school a grandson, Martin lost. Now watch this. This spirit of God intercedes for me. He catches the bowl he makes the plaintiffs.

He does the impossible.

That's what intercession means that here I am.

I am incapable, I've heard so much on what to say. I do not harm genocide in the spirit of God gently and lovingly picks me up and intercedes for me before my Savior God King, let me tell you about Don you take the spirit out where in bad shape spirit of God impact on the spirit.

Let me close with this without the spirit is no hope why because the spirit of God convicts me of my sin folks you don't convict yourself of sin. God by his spirit convicts you of your unbelief and number two because he raises here from the date it is what it is I'm in a close with the solicitor this my dear friend, this is this is marvelous.

This is unbelievable.

All of us are going to die folks if Jesus doesn't come with Canada a question about the Bible say is that the same spirit that raised Jesus from the date is the same spirit that raises me from the date folks, the resurrection is about the sharing partnership that I have with Jesus Christ and the Bible says that if I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and watch this and I believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the date I will be safe because when I do that this God comes into me and what Jesus said about the abundant life becomes my life. I am not only convicted of my sin unto salvation, but I'm raised from the dead, according to eternal salvation. It means that I will never die because the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead raises me from the date and presents me before the throne of grace models are, let's come back to my original statement. Can you imagine if the spirit of God was removed from us, what would we have folks that's why here at First Baptist Church. We've always going to be very very careful. We keep the main thing the main thing we've always got a new poll since like to know nothing among you accepting Jesus Christ and him crucified friend. If today you all finding yourself in circumstances that are difficult.
