[ lori ] when i see that, i get emotional, because that's not me. it's not me. this is me, living my life, being there for my kids. we had kids much later in life, and i wanted to be the mom that was on the jungle gym, that was coaching their volleyball team, that was running around with them
i didn't want to be the mom anymore that said, "no, honey, i can't go swimming with you right now", you know, secretly because i'm petrified to put on a bathing suit, you know? and now i'm present for them and for me. [ marie ] no more excuses. [ applause ] ahh. okay, so, i just -- can i just hug you? yeah. are you kidding? [ laughter ] are you kidding me? because i know -- don't you feel like life has just begun? it's absoluty just begun. i love that. what about you, vanessa -- when you see you before? [ vanessa ] when i see me before, it takes me back to -- i travel a lot for work. and it is a mortifying experience to walk on a plane and somebody look at you like, "oh, don't sit next to me. don't sit next to me." at my heaviest, i was this close to having to get a seat belt extender on the plane. and it's an uncomfortable feeling feeling like you got to suck it in just to put a seat belt on. so how do you feel now when you fly? [ sighs ] [ laughter ] it feels so good.
and i put that seat belt on. and i stretch that sucker as far as it will go... [ laughter, applause ] so, i'm just like, "yeah!" how about beautiful kelly? when i look at those pictures, i see a sad person. i see a person who was hiding. i see a person who was comforting myself. my husband and i lost a child in my late 20s. and i was always a thin person before. so, i turned to comfort food. and we had two more beautiful children, but i was ner able to get that weight off. r 20 years, i couldn't get the weight off and i just turned to food. what do you think -- you give yourself a reason why did it. i know what loss is. i'm so sorry. thank you. sorry. and you always can find a reason to excuse yourself or to justify why you've done something. mm-hmm.
because you -- that's huge. after 20 years... -yeah. ...of being a certain weight, what did that to you? well, it was a series of things. i couldn't do the things i wanted to do. i didn't feel like the person i really was. and i also could see it affecting my children, who are now in college. and by the way, they've improved their lifestyle. my son has actually lost 10 inches off his waist in the last year. how does that make you feel? oh, it's an amazing thing. -isn't it awesome? -yeah, it's awesome. and to hear my daughter tell me how proud she is of me, um...means everything, you know? and so, now i'm able to just enjoy life. all right, so, that's so awesome. and you need -- let's do that fun thing. should we do that? -let's do it. you know why? -tell them. -because it's so easy to forget how much the weight was that you really lost. you lose perspective on the amount of 40, 50, 65 pounds, even 10 pounds. yes. so, we have this fun thing today. [ laughs ] it's awesome

[ male announcer ] the preceding was
announcer hello and welcome to through the bible with les feldick. an oklahoma rancher and farmer, les feldick has been teaching home-style bible classes for over twenty years in iowa, oklahoma and texas. les feldick's unique style of bible teaching has made the books of the bible come to life. when les is teaching, it's so interesting that people say, 'time just seems to fly by.' and now here is les feldick. les feldick okay, let's be just turning rightack to where we left off in that last program, even though we started in galatians 4, we were back in genesis and so for those of you here in
you watching on television, jump in with me again in genesis chapter 21. agai for the sake of new listeners, we're just an informal bible study and all we hope to do is to get folk to geback into the word and see what it says and what it doesn't say, which is just as important. and then of course, we like to remind folk that if you're interested in any of the past programs, they are all available on video and audio as well as the printed page. we've got a lot of volunteers. jerry pool back there does all the transcribing and he's been such a blessing and then of course we have keith decker up here at tulsa that gets it ready for the printer and i think for those of you out in television, that have found our web page on e internet, i can't take any of the credit for that. matt mcgee here in tulsa has just, from what i have heard, i've never seen it,
matt has just done a fabulous job in putting our stuff up on the internet and we always like to give credit where credit it due because i can't take any credit for that, whatsoever. so if you've never found out page on the internet it's just - i think it's up here isn't it? yeah. it's www.lesfeldick.org and again i want to just give matt the credit for it. and i'm sure he even has a couple of others that have helped him; i think the harvey's son has helped matt quite a bit. so everybody's working together and we just trust that the lord is being glorified by it. all right, nothen let's go back where we left off with the two sons of abraham remeer, that paul is going to use as an allegory. in fact, i guess maybe we should go back and look at galatians just for a second as a kick off point because after all that's the verse we've got on the board now. galatians chapter 4 and he says in verse 24, well verse 2and
(verse 22).it is written that abraham had two sons, one by a bond maid the other by a free woman. he who is of the bond woman was born after the flesh." and i pointed that out in the last program, how that god had nothing to do with abraham having that child by hagar but it was all in the energy of the flesh and then the other one isaac, was as a result of all the promises of those almost 40 years. all right, then verse 24, all of this the whole concept of the birth of ishmael and the birth of isaac was for an allegory that paul is going to use now in the age of grace. so keep all this in mind as we go back now then to genesis and pick up the account, th first we have the
ishmael by the slave girl hagar, his birth. d then of course, she just taunts sarai that she was now with child and she wasn't until finally sarai st literally kicked her out and sent her out into the desert whereupon the lord sent herack. and remember i told you, keep that uppermost in your mind. why? why did god send her back because 18 years later she's going to go back out into that same desert but you see, god's got always the big picture in his mind. god doesn't look at the here and the now necessarily, god can leap thousands of years as though it's a day. and that's exactly what he did here. i think this whole scenario, i think every jot and tittle was programmed by god so that paul could use it as a tremendous lesson for you and i today. now that's the way i look at scripture. none of this
right, as we carry on, that isaac is now five years old d he's weaned and ishmael is about 18 and again, that same attite of rebellion and taunt comes in and now we find in verse 9 of chapter 21 that "sarah saw the son ofagar the yptian (ishmael) which she had born unto abraham, mocking." in other words, he was just simply teasing that little five year old to death. and you know how teenagers can do with the little 'tail-enders' as we call them. and he's doing the same thing here. he was just making life miserably for little five-year-old isaac and of course, mama - sarah- ninety years old, just couldn't take it and so again she says, 'get him out of here.' all right now look what the scripture says, verse 10. "wherefore, (because of ishmael's taunting the son of
she said unto abraham, 'cast out this bondwoman d her son for this son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with isaac." got the picture? get him out of here. now i always make the point, does she say move them next door? does she say, send them down the trail a half-a-mile? no sir! out of sight. out of mind. now of cose, we know in reality isaac and ishmael did come back together for the funeraof their parents and so forth, but spiritually speaki there was no union between isaac and ishmael. isaac of course, continues on in the spiritual line and gets a wife from up in syria where the relatives were. ishmael on the other hand marries an egyptian. just a total
genealogies of these two younmen. but the part i want you to see back here in chapter 21 is what the scripture says 'cast out this bondwoman and her son for her son shall not be an heir with my son isaac.' now remember, th is more than just the thought of a mother or of a woman, this is now the word of god. 'cast out the bondwoman.' all right, now i think we're ready to go back to galatians chapter 4 and put the whole allegory into what we would say - common sense interpretation. why did l this happen? well, of course, there was more thanne reason. but one of which was so that paul could use this vertypical setting in that middle eastern desert economy of these families and now he
lesson for us today. all right, let's come back in again at verse 24 of galatians 4. these two boys, one born after the flesh, the other boras a result of promise. "these things are an allegory, for thes(these two young men).these are the two covenants (or agreements,) the one from mount sinai which gendereth to bondage, and that's hagar." now what is in reality spoken of here as bondage? the law. the vaw. in fact just come on over to chapter 5 where we'll probably we later this afternoon, but just jump on up to chapter 5 verse 1. chapter 5 verse 1 and what is the law called?
with that yoke of (what?) bondage." and it's a reference to the law. all right, let's come back and see even what the apostle peter said about it. come back to acts chapter 15. acts chapter 15, at that great jerusalem counsel. and the judaisers the jewish leaders, including of course, peter and the eleven were coming down hard on the apostle paul for teaching his message of grace to these gentiles an they are trying to convince him, as we learned earlier in gatians that he had to practice circumcision and keeping the law, f these gentile believers. and p pl adamantly refused. finally, here in chapter 15, finally peter wakes up and i think the holy spirit gave him a big push and he realizes that hey, years ago up
me to take the word to a gentile, cornelius. and peter witnessed the salvation of that gentile and again god had the long term in view, not the near and so realizing of this ent, god had peter all primed and ready. now it a minute, twelve years ago. it doesn't say twelve ars here, but chronologically that's what it was. but peter says, "a long time ago (or a good while ago) god by my mouth opened the word to these gentiles." all right, but now look what he says in verse 10 of chapter 15, "now therefore why tempt (or test) god to put a (what?).a yoke.why st god and put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples." now thword disciples here does not mean the twelve, it means the believers up there in
become believers of paul's gospel and n under law or legalism but which the judaisers were trying to put there. so now peter says, "why test god to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples (or the lievers) which neither our faths nor we were able to bear." now goodness sakes, what was the yoke? the law, see? the law was a yoke of bondage. and i've always made the point. living under the law was severe. i me when they were really under the full practitiing of the law there was no monkey business. if they picked up sticks on the sa2`ath, what was the punishment? death by stoning. a horrible death.ny kind of an immorality. it was death. and so the law was severe. if the poor old high pest
detail, what happened? he was dead. he was dead. now i don't know how much truth there is into it, whether it's all legend or what, but you'll all heard the account thathe high priest actually had a rope around his ankle when he went in behind the veil, now like i say, i'm not sure, scripture doesn't say it. but if thahabe true, i can see why. because if he'd have goofed with one little idea of that ritual on that day of atonement, he was a dead man. and of course, the jews realized that that was always a ssibility so they had a rope on his feet becau they certainly couldn't go back and cry him out. but the point i'm making is that the law was severe. it was like a yoke on the neck of an oxen. and a yoke is never an easy burden to bear. and that what the law was. all right now then, if you'll come back with me to galatians 4 once again, and so now then,
analogy, that the law was the flesh. it was like a yoke. it only brought in bondage. all right, verse 25 of galatians 4, "for this hagar is (typically now, in the allegory).hagar is typical of mount sinai in arabia." now until you heard me teach that i felt the apostle paul spent three years at sinai, what one great event do you always associate with sinai in arabia? well the ten commandments, see? all right, now that's what paul says. hagar is a picture of the giving of the ten commandments on mount sinai. "and answereth to jerusalem which now is." now again, here's where you have to know chronology. you've got to know history.
approximately of t t writing of galatians? well, about 60 ad. when was the temple destroyed? '70 ad.' so ten years before the tele is dederoyed, what's going on in jerusalem? temple worship. sacrifices. every day. hundreds and hundreds of them. the temple was the very center of all jewish activi at the time that paul is writing galatians. have i made myself clear? all right, so that's why paul can say that hagar speaks of the law as it was given at sinai which wasastill indicative of temple worship at the time e at paul was writing his letter to the galatians. okay, then iall makes sense if you understand the timing. "and it answereth to jerusalem which now is and is in bondage with her children." and again,
they were still under the heavy hand of ththlaw. they were still under the demand to bring sacrifices. t circumcise their children and all these things. the law was in 'full speed ahead' in jerusalem. all right, now verse 26. what's the first word? 'but', like one lady wrote and said, that's your favorite word. well, i guess maybe it is because it constantly shows that flipside. whereas on the one hand jerusalem was under the heavy hand of the law and sacrificial worship and the templend all that. oh, the flipside, what has now begun since acts chapter 9? the grace of god! the grace of god without the law. now you see they're running in nsort. oh, that's why i tell people constantly when they call with questions, i say now look. don't for goodness sakes use the book of acts as a doctrinal base. the book of acts is
a transitional from an historical point of god dealing with israel to his turning to the gentiles. that's the book of acts. and justs soon as you try to go in there andndig out doctrine, you're going to have problems. so you take your doctrines for us today from romans through hebrews or romans through phemon, if you want to leave hebrews out. but you go to paul's letters for our basic doctrine. acts is merely a book of transition. and oh, if i could just get people to see that, that answers so much of the confusion much of the confusion because the two economies are going to be running side-by-side for a period of time until the one drops away and the other takes over. you've heard me say it on the program. i don't know how many times. it's just almost compared to a transition from one presesential administration to another. and i always like to use, becauau of their differences of ideology, jimmy carter's administration and then
totally different idea and yet under the same constitition and so as soon as ronald reagan had won the election in november, up until the inauguration day, whi if i remember correctly was in january. i hope it is. what's going on in washington? are they passing a bunch of laws? is there a lot bein accomplished? no. nothing. everything just sort of comes to a standstill until we can make a transition from this administrationo this one. all right, now that's the same thing that happened in the book of acts. you're moving from that jewish program, temple worship, the law, that jesus was the christ, the king, the redeemer of israel and we're moving over to paul's gospel of grace through faith plus nothing! what a difference! contradiction? no. change of program. see? all right,
back to o p pitical administrations, did they ve to o ange the constitution? ? . carter operated under the same constitution that reagan did. and as we've been coming on up e en since then, and so always take this into account that you dodot use e e e e e e acacaca doctctnanananana becacacayoyore going to o tt rown a curvevelmososevererertimememeyou u u u u u u u u u ululul`pters and now, at's's'st follows ththththwowo 'b-u-t' in n rsrsrsrs ututututsalelelehich iss above (not the eararlylyly jejesalem where the temple is still cranking out her sacrifices, but now we h 2ee a spirirual seseing in the avavaves and it) isssssss right, now let me show yoyowhatat mean. come b bk with m m m
kingdododododododor r r " now where isishehein# om of ofofperations. t t h hofofof the boboboboboboboboboand we are citizens. now come back to philippians chapter 3. just a page or two to the left. phippians chapter 3 and i hope you can tie all this together. the temple at the time that galatians is written, full speed ahead, i put it. i mean the sacrifices are being offered. the temple ritual is being followed. the priests are fulfilling all of their rituauaevery day. but at the same time now, since paul has had his revelations, we have this total freedom of grace see? all right. now look at what philippians says.
our citizenship (now the king james uses the word conversation, but it's our citizenship and where is it?) is in heaven. (how did it get there? when we were translated into the kingdom of his dear son and we became a what? a citizen of it. so where's our citizenship? heaven. see the difference. and so it's the jerusalem, which is above. now come back to gatians 4 verse 26, so for us - grace age believers- we're not tied to the temple worship in earthly jerusalem, we're tied to the heavenly jerusalem, which is above. and it's free. f-r-e-e, with total liberty. and "it is the mother (or the beginning) of us all." now verse 27, here we come back to ishmael and isaac after all that's where the allegory rested. "for it is written rejoice thou barren
forth and cry, thou that travailest not." now my idea here is this is speaking of sarah. sarai. because she was the one who had never had childbirth. she was the one o had been barren, see? and so, it says, "break forth and cry thou that travailest not." all right, then the last half of the verse, i have to feel is, it's speaking of again, ishmael as being spiritually desolate, "for the desolate hath many more children than she who hath a husband." well, that has to be a reference to hagar. and then again, look at the real world. who ended up with far more progeny, the offspring of ishmael or the offspring of isaac? well, ishmael. the arab world out numbers the jews today 50 to 1. and so it's perfect.
which would have to refer to sarah, and isaac. had far fewer in number than she who didn't, see? all right, verse 28, "now brethren, we as isaac was are the children of (what?) promise." promise! what kind of a promise. i'll tell you what the promise was. that when christ finished the work of redemption, what did god promise him? that evy one who would put their trust in what he had just accomplished would be his for all eternity. and god made the promise, see, that every believer wou be his for l eternity. he didn't die in vain. oh, he's not going to get near as many as we think he shod, but the multitude that have
and no one can ever take them from him. see? all right, let's move on quickly or i won't even finish it in this half-hour. "so then, he that was born after the flesh, (ishmael) persecuted him who was born afterhe spirit (isaac)." and that's why they had that being booted out. has anything changed? no. it's still e same. the unbelieving world outnumbers us, i'm not going to put a percentage on it. but, by a tremendous amount and what do they do? theyeye constantly trying to put us down. my we've seen that in jus the last few months. how that when a group will adhere to the scripture, what does the world do? they just scream and holler, see? well, it's always been that way and it's not going to change. okay, nothen verse 30, "nevertheless, (in spite of everything) what saith the
bondwoman and her son, (why?) for the son of the bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman. so then brethren we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free." but the part i want you to remember as you go to bed tonight, 'cast out the bondwoman and her son' because what t e they a picture of? legalism! if i'm not known for anything else by now, it's that. i hate, i detest legalism. because god does. and so the whole admonition of scripture now is that once you understand this gospel of grace, what do you do with legalism? you cast it out! just exactly like abraham and sarah sent hagar and ishmael into the
picture. he didn't build them a tent next door. he didn't say well let's have consort even though we may not be in the same building. no sir. there had to be a total break between grace and legalism and if you don't remember anything else today, remember that. "cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bond woman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman." so then paul puts the cap on it, "so then brethren, we are not children of the bond woman (but we're children of which one?) but the free." see? and we're going to see in our next half-hour, i guess i can read it but i'm not going to comment on it. you come right down in chapter 5. now you remember when paul wrote his letters, he didn't put in there 'chapter 5'. paul just kept right on writing or his, no this one he wrote himself. but he didn't put in a chapter 5, he just kept right on writing and so after he
allegory, what does he say next? "stand fast, therefore." because of what he has just shown us. "stand fast therefore, in the (what's the next word?) liberty." oh, we americans understand that more than any other people on earth, don't we? now liberty isn't license. it's turning into that, sad to say. but it was never intended for liberty to be license. but nevertheless, we stand now as free men and women under grace and never, never give in to the horrors of legalism. announcer thank you for watching through the bible with les feldick, a weekly bible study. if you would like more information about the les feldick ministries, a bible study in y yr area, or

[yelling] whoa, lookt that train! [train whistle blowing]
wowzers! i wonder what kind of train that was. i think i know just who will know. hi, conductor dave. hi, charlie rat. both: hey, bob. - you guys don't know what kind of train just zoomed by here, do you? - what train was that, bob? - well, the train that just passed by. - charlie, did you see a train pa by? - nope, no, sir, not a one. most indubitably not. - i'm sorry, bob. no train has passed here today. - well, that's weird. so the lights went off like this: blinky, blinky, blinky, blinky, blinky, blink. and the bells started to ding like this: ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding. and then the floor started to shake like this: whoa! [yelling] are you guys sure you didn't see a train pass by here? - hmm, could you describe it? - describe it? - yeah, bob. it would help us immensely if you could tell us what the train looked like.
- well, let's see. it was, um... it was really long. - mm. mm-hmm. - and it was really, really shiny. it had a ton of wheels, and the engine sounded like this: chugga-chugga, chugga-chugga, chugga-chugga, chugga-chugga, chugga-chugga, chugga-chugga. and then the whistle sounded like this: whoop-whoop, whoop-whoop! - ah, yes, well, that must have been the southern pacificaylight number 4449. it has the southern pacific's orange and red color scheme and has spent most of its life hauling passengers. many people consider it to be the most beautiful steam engine ever built. - well, it sure was pretty. wow, the southern pacific daylight number 4449. i've never seen or heard one of those before. huh, this must be my lucky day. - well, now that that's settled, any more questions, mr. choo choo bob? - no, i'm afraid not, conductor dave. thoswere exactly the detailerinos i was looking for. thanks a lot, guys. - good-bye, bob. - bye, bob.

- affirmative. and did you know that it's called an inclined railroad and uses gears to pull the train all the way up the mountain? - double affirmative. and did you know that no normal train could possibly scale up such a steep expanse, so that's why the pikes peak cog railway has to use gears? - between the two of us, i think we know this train from top to bottom and front to back. - mm-hmm, i couldn't agree more. - hey, let's get on board. - awesome idea, let's go. - all right. - hey, anybody want to ride a train? all: yeah! - wow, look at that. - [grunting] [wind howling]
