Title: Pigs


1
Pigs Pearls
  • Do not give what is holy to the dogs nor cast
    your pearls before swine, lest they trample them
    under their feet, and turn and tear you in
    pieces (Matt. 76)

2
Pearls Pigs
  • in the context of judgment (Mat. 71-5)
  • obviously, not all judgment is wrong or Jesus
    would not have asked of us to judge people who
    are dogs and pigs!
  • Jesus called a spade a spade
  • Herod was called a fox (Lk. 1332)
  • Pharisees and scribes were labeled white washed
    tombs and brood of vipers (Matt. 2327, 33)

J. W. McGarvey
He a Christian, sjw must know dogs and swine
when he sees them, and must not treat them as
priests and kings, the fit objects for the
bestowal of holy food and goodly ornaments. . .
.We are here forbidden, then, to use any
religious office, work, or ordinance, in such a
manner as to degrade or profane it. Saloons ought
not to be opened with prayer, nor ought
adulterous marriages to be performed by a man of
God. To give pearls to swine is to press the
claims of the gospel upon those who despise it
until they persecute you for annoying them with
it. When such men are known, they are to be
avoided (Fourfold Gospel, 263, 264)

  • dogs care not where meat comes from
  • swine care not if pearls are below their feet
  • there are men and women who could care less about
    heavens riches and Gods holiness!
  • WHAT MORE DO PIGS AND PEARLS TEACH?

5
DISCERNMENT
  • we are given the charge to discern between a
    genuine prospect and a pig
  • not placing Gods pearls before those interested
    is sinful
  • spending too much time with a pig is likewise not
    being a good steward of Gods pearls
  • wasteful to not use when we should. . .wasteful
    to use when we should not

6
DISCERNMENT
  • we need to recognize that we have limited
    resources
  • the truth with your life, time, energy and
    opportunities are Gods pearls of which we are to
    be managers of (1 Pet. 48-11)
  • time spent with a pig is time not spent with a
    person
  • holy meat given to a dog is holy meat not given
    to a person

7
DISCERNMENT
  • Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet
    that was cast into the sea and gathered some of
    every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to
    shore and they sat down and gathered the good
    into vessels, but threw the bad away (Matt.
    1347, 48)
  • yet God expects us to have a discerning eye of
    the bad too

8
Protection
  • . . .lest they trample them under their feet,
    and turn and tear you in pieces (Matt. 76)
  • just gotta tell him one more time
  • must realize when not making progress
  • must respect what you are throwing before
    himthe gospel!

Pigs Pearls Principle -taught through the ages
  • Proverbs 97-97 He who corrects a scoffer gets
    shame for himself, And he who rebukes a wicked
    man only harms himself. 8 Do not correct a
    scoffer, lest he hate you Rebuke a wise man, and
    he will love you. 9 Give instruction to a wise
    man, and he will be still wiser Teach a just
    man, and he will increase in learning

10
How do you know one is a pig?
  • when you hear the snort that is against your
    message
  • when you see the lack of interest in your time
    and spiritual truths
  • You will know them by their fruits. Do men
    gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from
    thistles? (Matt. 716)
  • Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of
    wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and
    harmless as doves (Matt. 1016)

11
What About A Disciple Who Is Walking With Wolves
Torn By Wild Swine?
  • We need to find and rescue (Lk. 151-10 Ezek.
    346)
  • teach Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
    And uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I
    will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners
    shall be converted to You (Ps. 5112, 13)
  • see them before the Lord (1 Thess. 219, 20)

12
Pigs Pearls Modeled

  • fed five thousand (610ff)
  • withdrew himself (615)
  • people find him and Jesus rebukes them for only
    seeking him because of the food they ate (626)
  • offers them spiritual bread to their disliking
    (641)
  • those who wont hear and learn are dogs and
    pigswont come to Christ (645)
  • gave a hard teachingmust eat His flesh and drink
    his blood (654)
  • many followed him no more (666)

The Pearl of Great Price
The way I view the pearl of great price
determines whether I am a PIG or MERCHANT!
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant
seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found
one pearl of great price, went and sold all that
he had and bought it (Matt. 1345, 46)

he had and bought it (Matt. 1345, 46)
The Pearl of Great Price
  • only one pearl of great value the kingdom of
    heaven!
  • it is never on sale full price was paid by this
    merchant didnt try to negotiate a price!
  • not enough to simply admire the pearl must buy
    it!

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant
seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found
one pearl of great price, went and sold all that
he had and bought it (Matt. 1345, 46)
The Pearl of Great Price
  • it required all that he had full commitment!
  • all other pearls (kingdoms, domains) fail in
    comparison to the kingdom of heaven!
  • one can live without the other beautiful pearls
    IN LIFE!
