Series: Revelation: The Best is Yet to ComeTitle: “Reverse the Curse: What is the New Eden?”Scripture: Revelation 22:1-9(Commentary helps listed at the end)Need: Believe that God's word is “trustworthy and true” enough to follow fully and faithfully.Bottom line: We reverse the curse in our own lives when we believe the word of God in word and action.INTRODUCTIONOpening story: Curse of the BambinoThe Curse of the Bambino was a superstitious sports curse in Major League Baseball(MLB) derived from the 86-year championship drought of the Boston Red Sox from 1918 to 2004. The superstition was named after Babe Ruth, colloquially known as "The Bambino", who played for the Red Sox until he was sold to the New York Yankees in 1920.[1] While some fans took the curse seriously, most used the expression in a tongue-in-cheekmanner.[2]Babe Ruth as a member of the 1918 Boston Red Sox, the final season before the drought.External imagesPicture of the graffitied "reverse curve" road signRemoval of the sign (then re-graffitied to read "reversed the curse") by a crew including Governor Mitt Romney, following Boston's 2004 World Series victory.Prior to the drought, the Red Sox had been one of the most successful professional baseball franchises. They won five of the first fifteen World Series titles, including the first in 1903, more than any other MLB team at the time.[3]During this period, Ruth was a core contributor to the Red Sox's three championships in 1915, 1916, and 1918. Following the sale of Ruth, however, the once lackluster Yankees became one of the most dominant professional sports franchises in North America and set the record for World Series titles by more than twice the amount of any other MLB team.[4] The curse became a focal point of the Yankees–Red Sox rivalry over the years.Talk of the curse as an ongoing phenomenon ended when the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series.[5] The Red Sox's championship was prefaced by them overcoming a 0–3 deficit against the Yankees in the American League Championship Series (ALCS), the first and, to date, only time an MLB team won a best-of-seven playoff series after losing the first three games.The curse had been such a part of Boston culture that when a "reverse curve" road sign on Longfellow Bridgeover the city's busy Storrow Drive was graffitied to read "Reverse The Curse,"[6] officials left it in place until the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series. After the World Series that year, the road sign was edited to read "Reversed Curse" in celebration.[6]Read Genesis 3:1-19; Revelation 22:1-9CONTEXTWe have seen:Jesus and his churches (1-3)The throne and judgments of God (6-16)The whore, the King, and his bride (17-22)It's also noteworthy that these last 2 chapters of Revelation and of the Bible occur when sin has been abolished from the universe. No more sin, shame, guilt, death—it's all history.Bottom line: We reverse the curse in our own lives when we believe the word of God in word and action.OUTLINEI. Description of the New EdenA. We will be nourished by God. (1-2)Water of lifeTree of lifeLeaves of healingB. We will worship our God. (3)Curse is reversedThrone of GodAppropriate response is worship/service (Latreuo) Ex.

(5)In the meantime, accept these invitations (2 of 7):II. Two invitations from God to us as we anticipate the New Eden and the reverse of the curse: (6-9)A. Obey God. (6-7)His words are trustworthy and trueThe Lord sent his angel to show his servants what's comingHe's coming soon!Blessed are the obedientB. Worship God! (8-9)John's signatureJohn's overwhelmed response is and isn't appropriate (faith vs feelings—-> discipline)We're servants who worship and we're worshippers who serveWhen we take a good thing and turn it into a god-thing, we sin and commit idolatryIII.

We talk about how we got into the alcohol game (Mickeys and Four Lokos), breastfeeding and if it changes a nipple and boob, and roleplaying as strangers with our significant others. Christian's too lazy to take baths and people think he's Indian. Alejandro asks everyone what they would bring into a pool and wants to get a gold tooth like a pirate. Alan ruins his laptop because we ask him to search up some outrageous things. Niki discusses what it was like to be a teacher, having British accent as a child and tells us about how she lost her tooth.

Lifespring! Media: Quality Christian and Family Entertainment Since 2004

Podcast Introduction Our reading today is Romans 7-8. Two of my favorite chapters in the entire Bible. I'll share some comments, and we'll do our “On This Day In Church History” segment. Thoughts on Romans 7 and 8  Do you like baseball? I love baseball. Probably because my grandpa loved it. I remember sitting on my grandpa's lap as he sat in his recliner, watching the Dodgers shortly after they moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles. Of course, I was too young to know that they were new to LA, and to me the Dodgers had always been here. Grandma and Grandpa lived just a little over 15 miles from the LA Coliseum, where the Dodgers played before Dodger Stadium was built, and the Dodgers were the home team. So my grandpa loved the Dodgers, and I loved my Grandpa, so I loved the Dodgers, and baseball. Why am I talking about baseball? Because Major League Baseball has a Hall of Fame. In that Hall of Fame are some of the best players the game has ever known. Players who exemplified excellence.  If there were a Hall of Fame of the best chapters in the Bible, I would most certainly nominate Romans 8, with runner up being chapter 7. Chapter 8 is Sandy Koufax, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and Lou Gehrig all rolled into one. And more. Let me explain. In chapter seven, Paul talks about how the Law pointed out sin to us. It made us aware of sin. Then he showed us that we are slaves to sin. He said, “I want to do what is right but I do not do it. Instead, I do the very thing I hate.” Does that sound familiar? If you are a believer, you know it does. If you are not a believer, then maybe it sounds foreign to you. But believers are intimately aware of the struggle between the desires of the flesh and the promptings of the Holy Spirit and the teaching of the Word of God. We know the feeling of despair when we fail. Paul ended chapter 7 with these words: “There is no happiness in me! Who can set me free from my sinful old self? 25 God's Law has power over my mind, but sin still has power over my sinful old self. I thank God I can be free through Jesus Christ our Lord!” Yes! Yes! A thousand times Yes! I thank God I can be free through Jesus Christ our Lord!  Listen again to Paul's opening words in chapter 8: “Now, because of this, those who belong to Christ will not suffer the punishment of sin. 2 The power of the Holy Spirit has made me free from the power of sin and death. This power is mine because I belong to Christ Jesus.” Home Run! Outta the park! “those who belong to Christ will not suffer the punishment of sin”. Them's shoutin' words, Family! Now as long as we're in this Hall of Fame chapter, let me repeat for you some of the best, most encouraging verses ever written: He gave Himself to take away sin. By doing that, He took away the power sin had over us. Home Run! if the Holy Spirit is the boss over your mind, it leads to life and peace. Home Run!  All those who are led by the Holy Spirit are sons of God. 15 You should not act like people who are owned by someone. They are always afraid. Instead, the Holy Spirit makes us His sons, and we can call to Him, “My Father.” Home Run! If we are children of God, we will receive everything He has promised us. We will share with Christ all the things God has given to Him. But we must share His suffering if we are to share His shining-greatness. Home Run! the Holy Spirit helps us where we are weak. We do not know how to pray or what we should pray for, but the Holy Spirit prays to God for us with sounds that cannot be put into words. 27 God knows the hearts of men. He knows what the Holy Spirit is thinking. The Holy Spirit prays for those who belong to Christ the way God wants Him to pray. Home Run! We know that God makes all things work together for the good of those who love Him and are chosen to be a part of His plan. Home Run! Since God is for us, who can be against us?  Home Run! God did not keep His own Son for Himself but ga...
