Transcript of The Help of Jesus

"Most people simply do not let themselves think about what is absolutely inevitable, namely, their own death. They are driven, consciously or unconsciously, to shut their eyes and close their ears and blank their minds to every thought that they are going to die and give an account to God. …And this is a form of slavery to the fear of death. They would say they are not afraid. But the fact is, the fear has gone underground and enslaves from the subconscious. …The fear of death enslaves everybody into a dream world of denial or escape or narcotic numbness or frenzied distraction or philosophic negation or paralyzing panic—unless something happens that deals with the reality of death and God and the devil and sin as they really are with no evasions or distortions or denials."
John Piper
Present #1:
Freedom from the Fear of Death
The Help of Jesus
"Because He Himself
[who was made like us in 'every way']
suffered when He was tempted, He is able to help those who are being tempted."
Hebrews 2:18
Present #2:
Help in Our Humanity
"For this reason He had to be made like His brothers in every way, in order that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God and that He might make atonement for the sins of the people."
Hebrews 2:17-18
"Since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity so that by His death he might destroy Him who holds the power of death-- that is, the devil--and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not angels He helps, but Abraham's descendants."
Hebrews 2:14-16
"devil" & "satan"
"Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, 'Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come,
for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night.
And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death."
Revelation 12:10-11
"No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of My own accord."
John 10:18
"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.' So we say with confidence, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?'"
Hebrews 13:5-6
“Sympathy with the sinner in his trial does not depend on the experience of sin but on the experience of the strength of the temptation to sin which only the sinless can know in its full intensity. He who falls yields before the last strain.”
B.F. Westcott
"And He came home, and the crowd gathered again, to such an extent that they could not even eat a meal. When His own people heard of this, they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, 'He has lost His senses.'"
Mark 3:20-21
"And He was stating the matter plainly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said, 'Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's.'"
Mark 8:32-33
“Having put His hand to the plow, He did not turn back (Lk. 9:62). He fulfilled all that He had promised. Temptation and torment did not turn Him aside from His gracious purpose (Mt. 4:11ff.; 16:21ff.). Faithful to the very end, He drained the bitter cup of suffering to its last dregs for our redemption (Mk. 14:36). In bearing our sins, He even bore our forsakenness and our alienation (Mk. 15:34). Our hell He made His, that His heaven might be ours.”
Philip Hughes
"high priest"
"But I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who will do according to what is in My heart and in My soul; and I will build him an enduring house...."
1 Samuel 2:35
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love."
1 John 4:18
