LESSON TITLE: THE HALF WAS NOT TOLD ME - THE GOSPEL



WELCOME

GOOD MORNING! LET ME WELCOME EACH OF YOU TO OUR PROGRAM THIS MORNING. IT IS ALWAYS A PRIVILEGE TO HAVE YOU WITH US TO HEAR THE LIVING WORD OF GOD. WE ARE EXCITED THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO GIVE THIS TIME OF SACRIFICE TO OUR GOD. WON'T YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY THIS MORNING TO GIVE YOUR OWN REVERENCE TO GOD, AS WE TOGETHER OFFER THIS TIME OF WORSHIP TO HIM. MAY ALL THINGS BE DONE, TO GOD, FOR GOD AND UNTO HIS GLORY. LET'S BEGIN OUR OFFERING TO GOD WITH A PRAYER!

PRAYER: OUR GOD AND FATHER IN HEAVEN, WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR THIS DAY AND EVERY DAY OF LIFE. AND FATHER, WE ASK THAT YOU WILL HELP US TO ALWAYS BE THE TYPE OF CHILDREN THAT WE SHOULD AND DO ALL THINGS IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH AS YOU COMMAND THROUGH YOUR WORD THE BIBLE. AND BE WITH US THIS DAY, THIS DAY OF WORSHIP, THAT WE MIGHT GIVE YOU OUR VERY BEST SO THAT IN ALL THINGS WE MIGHT SHOW YOU HOW MUCH WE LOVE YOU AS WE RESPOND TO THE GREATEST OF ALL LOVES THAT YOU HAVE SHOWN TO US. IN JESUS NAME WE PRAY, AMEN.

ALL OF US IN THIS LIFE GET USE TO HAVING OUR OWN WAY. WE ARE BROUGHT UP IN A SOCIETY THAT SAYS THIS IS POSSIBLE AND SO WE VERY QUICKLY HAVE BOUGHT INTO THIS CONCEPT. HOWEVER, THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT SOMEONE ELSE IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN COMMAND OF OUR LIVES. YOU GUESSED IT: JESUS! THIS MORNING WE ARE GOING TO BEGIN WITH A SONG THAT TELLS US THAT OUR REDEEMER IS ALIVE AND WELL. SO, WON'T YOU JOIN IN WITH THE CONGREGATION AT THIS TIME AS WE SING TOGETHER, "I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVES."



DEVOTIONAL THOUGHTS



THE BIBLE TALKS A LOT ABOUT DIVISION AND HOW WE ARE TO BE THOSE WHO ARE UNIFIED IN THE THINGS OF CHRIST. AT THE SAME TIME THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT WE ARE TO BE WILLING TO GIVE UP ANYTHING FOR THE SAKE OF CHRIST. ONE SUCH VERSE IS IN THE WORDS OF CHRIST HIMSELF, FOUND IN LUKE 12:51-53. THERE WE READ, "DO YOU SUPPOSE THAT I CAME TO GIVE PEACE ON EARTH? I TELL YOU, NOT AT ALL, BUT RATHER DIVISION. FOR FROM NOW ON FIVE IN ONE HOUSE WILL BE DIVIDED: THREE AGAINST TWO, AND TWO AGAINST THREE. FATHER WILL BE DIVIDED AGAINST SON AND SON AGAINST FATHER, MOTHER AGAINST DAUGHTER AND DAUGHTER AGAINST MOTHER, MOTHER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AND DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW."

WHAT ON EARTH IS JESUS TALKING ABOUT HERE? WHY ARE WE TO BE WILLING TO GIVE UP THESE THINGS? ON THE OTHER HAND WE READ VERSES LIKE LUKE 9:56, WHERE JESUS SAID, "FOR THE SON OF MAN DID NOT COME TO DESTROY MEN'S LIVES BUT TO SAVE THEM." SO WHAT IS THE POINT JESUS IS TRYING TO MAKE IN THESE VERSES? THE REAL QUESTION IS WHAT ARE WE WILLING TO GIVE UP FOR CHRIST? NOT THAT WE WILL HAVE TO GIVE THEM UP OR PUT THEM ASIDE, BUT ARE WE WILLING TO IF NEED BE? WHAT IS IT THAT TRULY COMES FIRST AND FOREMOST IN OUR LIVES? DO WE REALLY PUT GOD FIRST? WILL WE FOLLOW HIM AT ANY COST. NO DOUBT THIS IS WHY JESUS COMMANDED US TO, "BUT SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED TO YOU." GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN A JEALOUS GOD AND EXPECTS HIS FOLLOWERS TO PUT HIM FIRST IN ALL THINGS, EVEN IF IT MEANS GIVING UP THINGS OF THIS LIFE FOR HIS SAKE.

JUST WHAT ARE WE WILLING TO GIVE UP FOR JESUS? ULTIMATELY, JESUS CAME WITH THE MESSAGE PROCLAIMED BY PAUL IN 1 CORINTHIANS 14:33. THERE WE READ, "FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL THE CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS." GOD DOES WANT HIS FOLLOWERS TO HAVE A GOOD AND PEACEFUL LIFE, BUT NOT AT ANY COST! IN THE END, WE ARE TO BE THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO SERVE OUR GOD, EVEN IF IT MEANS GIVING OUR VERY LIVES FOR HIS CAUSE. SO, JUST HOW FAR ARE YOU WILLING TO GO IN YOUR SERVICE TO GOD?

TODAY WE ARE EXCITED TO HAVE BROTHER JERRY SULLINS WITH US AS OUR GUEST SPEAKER. BROTHER JERRY IS THE DIR. OF THE BIBLE INSTITUTE OF MISSOURI, HERE IN SPRINGFIELD. AS ALWAYS WE APPRECIATE HIM TAKING HIS TIME TO BE HERE TODAY AND LOOK FORWARD TO HIM LEADING OUR STUDY IN GOD'S WORD. AS FAR AS OUR TOPIC, WE WILL BE CONCLUDING OUR DISCUSSION ENTITLED, "THE HALF WAS NOT TOLD ME." TODAY OUR SPECIFIC LESSON WILL BE ENTITLED, "THE GOSPEL." SO STAY WITH US AND AFTER OUR NEXT SONG TOGETHER, BROTHER SULLINS WILL BE LEADING US IN OUR MAIN THOUGHTS OF THE DAY. BUT FOR NOW LET'S JOIN TOGETHER IN OUR SECOND SONG OF THE MORNING. THE NAME OF THIS HYMN, "HOW SHALL THE YOUNG SECURE THEIR HEARTS."



LESSON

BY JERRY SULLINS



WELCOME AGAIN TO THE LIVING WORD BROADCAST. WE'RE SO THANKFUL THIS MORNING THAT YOU ARE AGAIN A PART OF OUR VIEWING AUDIENCE. AND IF THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU HAVE VIEWED THIS PROGRAM WE'RE CERTAINLY THANKFUL TO HAVE YOU IN THE AUDIENCE THIS MORNING. OUR SITUATION AS FAR AS THIS PROGRAM IS CONCERNED OR AT LEAST OUR FOCUS OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO PRESENT TO YOU THE WORD OF GOD CONCERNING MANY VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECTS IN THE BIBLE TODAY AND TO GIVE YOU GOD'S ANSWERS TO MAN'S QUESTIONS. WE ARE PRESENTLY IN A SERIES THAT CONCERNS MANY IMPORTANT SUBJECTS AND TAKEN FROM THE CONCEPT OF THE HALF HAS NOT YET BEEN TOLD - THIS MORNING I'M GOING TO BE SPEAKING ABOUT THE BIBLICAL CONCEPT OF THE GOSPEL ITSELF.

NOW - AS FAR AS THE HALF HAS NOT YET BEEN TOLD, MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE INVOLVED IN FOREIGN MISSIONS UNDERSTAND AND KNOW VERY WELL THAT PROBABLY OVER HALF OF THE POPULATION OF THIS WORLD HAVE NOT HEARD ABOUT JESUS OR IF THEY HAVE HEARD THE NAME THEY HAVE NO CONCEPT ABOUT WHY HE CAME TO THIS EARTH AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE HE CAME AND ANYTHING ABOUT THE GOSPEL ITSELF. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE GOSPEL? I'M THINKING THAT MOST OF YOU HAVE STUDIED THE GOSPEL BEFORE AND YOU'RE FAIRLY ACQUAINTED WITH THE GOSPEL. WELL, MAYBE SOME THINGS MAY REFRESH YOUR MEMORY THIS MORNING OR GIVE YOU A BETTER INSIGHT AS TO WHAT THE GOSPEL ACTUALLY IS. SO WE'RE SPEAKING TO BILLIONS OF PEOPLE OR SHOULD BE SPEAKING TO BILLIONS OF PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THIS WORLD WHO NEED TO HEAR THE PRESENTATION OF THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. THE REASON FOR THE GOSPEL IS SIMPLE - THE FACT IS ALL MEN HAVE SINNED (ROMANS THREE VERSE 23) FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. THE APOSTLE PAUL IN THE VERY SAME BOOK IN ROMANS 6:23 SAID: FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD. SO IT IS VERY MUCH NEEDED IN THIS WORLD TODAY TO FIND A REMEDY FOR SIN. SIN BEING AS JOHN SAID IN THE BOOK OF FIRST JOHN THAT SIN IS A TRANSGRESSION OF GOD'S LAW. NOW MOST PEOPLE ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH BELIEVE IN A GOD BUT WE'RE EXPRESSING THE WISHES OF THE TRUE AND THE LIVING GOD AS FAR AS HIS LOVE FOR ALL OF HIS CREATION THAT MAN MIGHT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE REDEEMED OR FORGIVEN OF HIS SINS THROUGH WHAT IS COMMONLY CALLED IN THE SCRIPTURE THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. NOW LET'S LOOK AT THE WORD GOSPEL ITSELF AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE VERY DEFINITION OF THAT WORD. ACTUALLY IN THE GREEK LANGUAGE IT IS GOD'S EVANGEL. GOD'S MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE WHO WERE DYING IN SIN. IN THE SAME BOOK OF ROMANS THAT WE'VE BEEN MAKING REFERENCE TO CONCERNING SIN IN ROMANS CHAPTER 1 VERSE 16 IT SAYS: FOR THE GOSPEL IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO ALL WHO WOULD BELIEVE TO THE JEW FIRST AND ALSO TO THE GENTILE. THE APOSTLE PAUL THE SAME ONE WHO WROTE THE BOOK OF ROMANS GAVE A DESCRIPTION OF THE GOSPEL IN 1 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 15 VERSUS 1 THROUGH 4. AND I READ FROM THE SCRIPTURE: MOREOVER BRETHREN I DECLARE TO YOU THE GOSPEL WHICH I PREACH TO YOU. YOU SEE, THE GOSPEL WHICH IS THE GOOD NEWS THAT JESUS CHRIST CAME INTO THIS WORLD TO SAVE US FROM OUR SINS. GOING ON WITH WHAT PAUL SAID THAT HE HAD PREACHED IT TO THEM WHICH ALSO YOU RECEIVE AND IN WHICH YOU STAND BY WHICH YOU ARE SAVED. IF YOU HOLD FAST THE WORD WHICH I PREACH TO YOU UNLESS YOU BELIEVED IN VAIN. SO HERE IS THE GOSPEL - PAUL'S DESCRIPTION FROM GOD HIMSELF - FOR I DELIVERED TO YOU FIRST OF ALL THAT WHICH I ALSO RECEIVE THAT CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES THAT HE WAS BURIED AND THAT HE ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES. SO JESUS' DEATH, HIS BURIAL, AND HIS RESURRECTION. IN HIS DEATH AND THE SHEDDING OF HIS BLOOD ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY WE SEE THAT WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH THIS BLOOD EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS (COLOSSIANS CHAPTER 1 VERSE 14) THIS IS HOW WE HAVE BEEN REMOVED OUT OF THE POWER OF DARKNESS AND TRANSLATED INTO THE KINGDOM OF HIS LORD OF OUR LORD AND OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST (COLOSSIANS 1 VERSE 13). SO WE SEE THAT THIS GOOD NEWS IS WHAT WE ARE OR IS HOW WE ARE GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE AND SALVATION FROM OUR SINS.

AS WE STATED IN ROMANS 6:23 THAT DEFINITELY AS IT IS STATED IN THE SCRIPTURE THAT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD FOR THE WAGES, IT SAYS FIRST OF ALL, OF SIN IS DEATH BUT ETERNAL LIFE IS GIVEN TO US THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. THIS PROMISE STARTED BACK A LONG, LONG, TIME AGO. IN FACT IN GENESIS CHAPTER 3:15 THERE'S REFERENCE MADE TO IT BUT EVEN MORE IN GENESIS CHAPTER 12 VERSE 3 - A PROMISE IS MADE TO THE GREAT FATHER OF FAITH WHOM WE REFER TO AS ABRAHAM WHERE GOD CAME TO ABRAHAM AND MADE THIS STATEMENT: IF YOU WILL LEAVE CHALDEA AND GO TO A PLACE I WILL SHOW YOU THROUGH YOUR SEED ALL NATIONS OF THE EARTH WOULD BE BLESSED. NOW THE APOSTLE PETER AND OTHERS ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST IN ACTS CHAPTER 3 AFTER THE DAY OF PENTECOST IN ACTS CHAPTER 3 VERSE 25 IT WAS REFERENCED BY PETER AND OTHERS THAT THE FACT WAS THAT THIS WAS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE PROMISE THAT WAS MADE TO ABRAHAM - THAT WHICH TOOK PLACE ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST IN ACTS CHAPTER 2 WHERE THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM WERE GIVEN TO PETER AND THE REST OF THE APOSTLES AS IT WAS PROMISED. AS YOU MIGHT REMEMBER MATTHEW CHAPTER 16 VERSE 18 AND 19: THOU ART PETER AND UPON THIS ROCK I WILL GIVE MY CHURCH. I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH AND I WILL GIVE UNTO YOU THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AND WHATEVER YOU SHALL LOOSED IN HEAVEN OR HAS BEEN LOOSED IN HEAVEN AND WHATEVER YOU BIND ON EARTH HAS ALSO BEEN BOUND IN HEAVEN. AND ALSO THIS SAME STATEMENT WAS MADE IN THE BOOK OF MATTHEW CHAPTER 18 TO ALL OF HIS APOSTLES. SO WHEN THE APOSTLES CAME TOGETHER IN THAT GREAT TIME ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST IN ACTS CHAPTER 2 THEY PREACHED THAT GREAT MESSAGE OF SALVATION. SALVATION FROM THE WAGES OF SIN OF ALL OF THE PEOPLE. THEY SAID THERE IN GENESIS OR IN ACTS CHAPTER 2 VERSE 37: THIS SAME JESUS WHOM YOU HAVE CRUCIFIED IS BOTH LORD AND CHRIST. AND THEY CRIED OUT, THAT IS THOSE JEWS WHO WOULD ASSEMBLE FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD, CRIED OUT - MEN AND BRETHREN, WHAT SHALL WE DO? IN ACTS CHAPTER 2 VERSE 38: THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM WERE UNLOCKED. AND PETER SAID - REPENT AND BE BAPTIZED EVERY ONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. SO THE APOSTLE PAUL MADE CLEAR WHAT PEOPLE NEEDED TO DO IN ORDER THAT THEY WOULD BE FORGIVEN OF THEIR SINS.

IN ROMANS CHAPTER 6 VERSES 1 THROUGH 6: THEREFORE, WE ARE BURIED WITH HIM BY BAPTISM INTO HIS DEATH THAT LIKE AS CHRIST WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD BY THE GLORY OF THE FATHER WE ALSO SHOULD BE RAISED TO WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE. SO IT IS A BAPTISM INTO THE DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST, WE HAVE OUR SINS WASHED AWAY (REVELATION 1 VERSE 5) AND WE RECEIVE THE PROMISE THAT WAS GIVEN TO ABRAHAM A LONG, LONG, TIME AGO AND THAT WAS THROUGH HIS SEED - ALL NATIONS OF THE EARTH WOULD BE BLESSED. NOW REPENTANCE AND REMISSION OF SINS WAS SOMETHING THAT JESUS WANTED PREACHED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. AND WHEN WE LOOK AT LUKE, THAT IS IN LUKE CHAPTER 24 BEGINNING WITH VERSE 44, THIS STATEMENT WAS MADE: THEN HE SAID TO THEM (THIS IS JESUS SPEAKING) HE SAID TO THEM, HIS DISCIPLES: THESE ARE THE WORDS WHICH I SPOKE TO YOU WHILE I WAS STILL WITH YOU THAT ALL THINGS MUST BE FULFILLED WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THE PROPHETS AND THE PSALMS CONCERNING ME. AND HE OPENED THEIR UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY MIGHT COMPREHEND THE SCRIPTURE. THEN HE SAID TO THEM: THUS IT IS WRITTEN AND THUS IT IS NECESSARY FOR THE CHRIST TO SUFFER AND TO RISE FROM THE DEAD THE THIRD DAY AND THAT REPENTANCE AND REMISSION OF SINS SHOULD BE PREACHED IN HIS NAME TO ALL NATIONS BEGINNING AT JERUSALEM. AND MY FRIENDS THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT TOOK PLACE IN ACTS CHAPTER 2 WHEN THE APOSTLE SPOKE THOSE WONDERFUL WORDS OF SALVATION. BE NOT MISTAKEN ABOUT THIS ONE THING. THAT THERE ARE CONDITIONS PLACED UPON THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS.

MUST ONE HAVE FAITH TO RECEIVE THE REMISSION OF THEIR SINS? YES, THAT'S BASICALLY WHAT WE REFERRED TO AS THE FIRST ACTION YOU MUST HAVE IN YOUR LIFE. THAT IS FAITH TO BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD. FOR WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE WELL PLEASING UNTO GOD FOR HE WHO COMES TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM (HEBREWS CHAPTER 6) WE KNOW THAT THIS IS VERY NECESSARY. I MEAN HEBREWS CHAPTER 11 VERSE SIX. JOHN 3:16: GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. HE CERTAINLY DID IN MARK 16 VERSE 16 AND HE STATED THAT IN HIS GREAT COMMISSION THAT WHOEVER COMES TO HIM MUST BELIEVE AND BE BAPTIZED. REPENTANCE IS SOMETHING THAT JESUS SPOKE OF. REPENT OR PERISH IS WHAT JESUS SAID IN LUKE 13 VERSE THREE. THOSE WERE THE WORDS THAT PETER SAID ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST IN ACTS 2:38. THOSE PEOPLE REALIZING THAT CRUCIFING CHRIST THEY WERE TOLD TO REPENT OF THAT SIN AND TO REPENT OF ALL SINS AND BE BAPTIZED FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS. CONFESSION IS NEEDED. JESUS SAID YOU NEED TO CONFESS ME BEFORE MEN AND I WILL CONFESS YOU BEFORE MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN. IN ROMANS 10 THE APOSTLE PAUL CONFIRMED THAT. THAT CONFESSION WITH THE MOUTH IS MADE UNTO SALVATION. SO WE NEED TO CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD. AND LET ME SAY THIS. ALTHOUGH THE RELIGIOUS WORLD DOES NOT TEACH THIS THAT BAPTISM IS NECESSARY FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS. PETER SAID THIS 1 PETER 3:21. THE LIKE FIGURE WHEREUNTO EVEN BAPTISM DOES ALSO NOW SAVE US NOT THE PUTTING AWAY OF THE FILTH OF THE FLESH BUT THE ANSWER OF A GOOD CONSCIENCE TOWARD GOD. IS IT NOT, THAT IS WE ARE BAPTIZED FOR THE REMISSION OF OUR SINS - JESUS SAID AS WE'VE ALSO ALREADY REFERRED TO IN MATTHEW 16 VERSE 16 WHEN HE GAVE HIS GREAT COMMISSION: HE WHO BELIEVES AND IS BAPTIZED SHALL BE SVED, SHALL BE SAVED FROM WHAT? SHALL BE SAVED FROM HIS OR HER SINS. THE GOSPEL IS GREAT AND WONDERFUL NEWS. IN FACT, IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL NEWS THAT COULD EVER BE GIVEN TO MANKIND. I REMEMBER YEARS AGO IN UGANDA WHERE A MAN SAID AFTER WE HAD PREACHED THE GOSPEL IN HIS SMALL HUT WHICH WAS ABOUT 10 X 10 AND THAT ROOM WAS FILLED WITH PEOPLE - THAT OLD MAN WHO COULD BARELY WALK TOLD ME BECAUSE HE HAD NEVER HEARD THE GOSPEL BEFORE - HE SAID - SIR, YOU HAVE BROUGHT US SOME VERY GOOD NEWS! AND I'M BRINGING YOU THE GREATEST NEWS THAT MAN COULD EVER BRING ANOTHER PERSON AND THAT IS JESUS IS WILLING TO FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS. BUT YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT HE'S A SON OF GOD. REPENT OF YOUR SINS, CONFESS HIS PRECIOUS NAME BEFORE MEN, AND BE BAPTIZED FOR THE REMISSION OF YOUR SINS. THAT IS THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST! THAT IS THE SAVING NEWS THAT WILL SAVE YOU FROM YOUR SINS AND GIVE YOU HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE! THE ONLY THING LEFT TO DO IS FOR YOUR OBEDIENCE TO HIS WILL AND WE'LL PRAY THAT YOU TAKE CARE OF THAT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
