Jesus taught that a king who was in great trouble had survived the upcoming war, creating peace with the enemy. We will look at the meaning that Jesus here led to the parable. Or what kind of king to fight another king does not sit down first and consider whether he can meet ten thousand who is opposed to twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is still a great way, he sends a delegation and asks for peace. 33 Likewise, anyone who does not abandon all that he has can not be my disciple.
Okay, let's check this out. First of all, I want to share with you something about the Christian life battle. We are in war. Now, if you do not have a lot of opposition in this war, it's probably because it's probably floating under the creek just like Satan himself. I heard Andrew Wommack use this statement. I thought it was funny. He said another dead fish could float. I thought it was funny.
The purpose of Christian life is to swim. You know, a salmon when they give birth, their papes, their eggs, and the eggs grow into small fish, swim up. Every woman salmon finds the river where she was born. You know, it's thousands of miles away and the GPS can keep track of the mouths of the river in their heads as they come out as a baby. And I go up to the stream. Directly to the top of the stream and to the eggs, then the mother dies. Now that salmon does not come into existence, a new salmon will not be created unless a mother has done it. Babies need a place where they feel safe, where there are no predators, and that's just a part of nature. That is why Christian life is swimming on the river. So many people live in the Christian world as the people of the world.
A survey has been made in the United States and I can not cite which year, but Brown Research. And they found that the only noticeable difference between the TV habits, the habits of all purchases bought, wages and job seekers between Christians and non-Christians was that Christians went to church on Sunday. That's the only difference they've found.
Do you know that Satan is waging war with the Christian Church and the body of Christ? The only enemy, Satan, has a Christian, the body of Christ. Everyone else. He does not fight war with others. And it is not particularly warfare for a Christian who does nothing for the Kingdom. But as soon as he begins to live the life of Christ as he begins to sympathize with his neighbors, and begins to use his money and resources to further see the kingdom of God on earth and distinguish between injustice and poverty and the broken heart in this world; As soon as you step in and start being different and go up, a massive campaign starts against you to stop.
Now many people go through these campaigns and immediately retaliate and stop everything they do, just scare them. But Jesus promises that if we are going through James through these miseries, we will strengthen our faith. Miseries are not from God. They come from Satan. But it teaches us to suffer and to be patient and to walk as hard as we can, the stronger our faith is, and the more we can do. So, let us confirm that we have an enemy and move on to the parable. If you are a king, if the United States, talk about the United States alone, you know that roughly 50% of people are watching YouTube from the United States and 70% of readers come from the United States. Now let's talk about the United States. Let's suppose Korea leaves the nuclear instrument and they know that there are missile control systems in Korea that are capable of getting nuclear weapons in the United States and sending them to many American cities. American cities do not get the defense mechanisms to stop all the rockets. If they send out a hundred, then only one has to go, and at 400 kilometers or even 600 kilometers where the nuclear device went out, everyone would have died. Korea has released nuclear facilities. Immediately in the middle of the war on terror and we broke Iraq over weapons of mass destruction. We started a war between Iraq and Afghanistan, who sought these weapons of mass destruction, and Korea released one of the weapons of mass destruction. Iraqis have never been found, never proved there, never found and respected, we still broke them, but in Korea and Korea they left a nuclear weapon and America did not start war with them. America sent a peace delegation to Korea. They said, "Please do not do it again."
Now this parable illustrates. If America had to take full force with Korea, the American people suffered hundreds of thousands or even millions of deaths. So they left with a peaceful delegation. They went out with a nice conversation and tried to talk about it. They did not sail on ships and attacked in Korea as they attacked Iraq.
So Jesus says that this can be related, Jesus says that anyone who wants to build a tower if he does not sit down first counts the costs that is enough to finish it is nonsense. If you did not set the base and you can not finish it. All those who see it begin to laugh. Nobody builds a tower or house and sits down and starts building the house without knowing he has enough money to finish the house or a semi-built house and people think he's stupid: "This man begins to build and he can not finish it, "or Jesus continues," or the king fights with another king, does not sit down first, and weighs him with the ability to meet tens of thousands of people who are facing twenty thousand people. " to win the nuclear war with Korea, because even a rocket would cause too much loss to the American people and they sent it to a peace delegation.
Jesus continues: "So just as one does not leave all that he can not be my disciple. "
There is one reason why one king fights another king, one king fights another king, because he wants what the other wants." The king of the king wants the resources of the king. "" Okay, so if he can not win a war with the king, if a king comes to you with twenty thousand men, and there are only ten thousand. Instead of waging war with this king, he would lose and lose the whole country, take sacrifice and action, and go out to the king and say : "Okay, okay, I stop subsidizing the prices of wheat and sell my cattle on the Asian markets cheaper, do not fight, okay? We lose, we reduce our foreign exports by 30% and suffer, and our people will do poor, but please do not fight this, win it! Well? "
What Jesus says, if you do not leave everything, you can not be his disciple, he says he will follow, it will be a victim. A real war with Satan is easy to float with the rest of the household, it is much harder to give finance and give from the time and the resources to do the things of God  The last thing I want it to sound like another legalistic discourse is something Jesus said: Jesus on the cross of death was enough payment for all of us to get in to the Kingdom, but shared this parable with people for the cost to become a successful follower of Jesus.
A person who wants to compete in the Olympics one day, first of all knows that there are years and years of hard work, day by day, year after year they have to compete and fit enough to compete with the best in the world, who really want to be the best in sports in the world to endure the pain and the whole year of the practice to get a chance to compete for their country each day. But the peoples of the Christian world do not share their Christian faith with the same commitment.
I know the warning is always a good thing. I remember helping a friend to prophecy (that is, talking directly to God about God) that my girlfriend's practice asked Jesus for a message. She said I was going through a refinery fire. It meant that they were going through such difficult times that make my Christian character better.
It was very difficult within a year. I was so happy to have been attacking Satan for a few years before I warned him.
If Christian Jesus warned you about the parable. If you want to make great things to God and make a lasting difference in this world, you will actually be very expensive. If you're happy to be on the beach, there will not be too much war.
