  • - FOR THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:00.050 --> 00:00:03.050
  • HE IS HERE
  • 00:00:03.050 --> 00:00:05.110
  • FOR REDEMPTION
  • 00:00:05.110 --> 00:00:06.190
  • FROM THE FALL
  • 00:00:06.190 --> 00:00:08.140
  • THAT WE MAY LIVE
  • 00:00:08.170 --> 00:00:11.170
  • FOR THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:12.020 --> 00:00:15.020
  • OH, THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:15.080 --> 00:00:18.080
  • THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:18.080 --> 00:00:20.270
  • - SO LET'S OPEN OUR BIBLES
  • 00:00:26.210 --> 00:00:28.170
  • TO JAMES 4:8,
  • 00:00:28.170 --> 00:00:30.290
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO BEGIN
  • 00:00:30.290 --> 00:00:31.240
  • A SERIES NOW ON WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:00:31.240 --> 00:00:33.280
  • AFTER RESURRECTION.
  • 00:00:33.280 --> 00:00:35.170
  • YOU KNOW, JESUS SHOWED UP
  • 00:00:35.170 --> 00:00:38.000
  • FOR 40 DAYS,
  • 00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:39.180
  • APPEARED IN BODILY FORM,
  • 00:00:39.180 --> 00:00:42.110
  • HE ATE BREAKFAST WITH THE GUYS,
  • 00:00:42.110 --> 00:00:44.060
  • HE COOKED SOME FISH,
  • 00:00:44.060 --> 00:00:44.280
  • HE SAID, "TOUCH MY HANDS,
  • 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:46.280
  • THE SCARS; IT'S REALLY ME."
  • 00:00:46.280 --> 00:00:48.280
  • HIS BODILY RESURRECTION
  • 00:00:48.280 --> 00:00:51.070
  • IS A HISTORIC FACT DOCUMENTED
  • 00:00:51.290 --> 00:00:54.290
  • BY ALL MANNER OF SOURCES
  • 00:00:54.290 --> 00:00:56.140
  • OUTSIDE THE BIBLE,
  • 00:00:56.140 --> 00:00:58.210
  • AND SO MANY EYEWITNESSES,
  • 00:00:58.210 --> 00:01:01.190
  • IT'S REALLY BEYOND DISPUTE.
  • 00:01:01.190 --> 00:01:04.190
  • IN ANTIQUITY WE CAN FIND
  • 00:01:04.190 --> 00:01:06.090
  • A LITTLE FRAGMENT
  • 00:01:06.090 --> 00:01:07.120
  • OF A DOCUMENT WRITTEN
  • 00:01:07.120 --> 00:01:10.060
  • BY A GREEK PHILOSOPHER,
  • 00:01:10.060 --> 00:01:11.210
  • AND IT'S JUST BOOM,
  • 00:01:11.210 --> 00:01:13.120
  • CONSIDERED AUTHENTIC.
  • 00:01:13.120 --> 00:01:15.100
  • WE'VE GOT TONS
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:16.240
  • AND TONS OF DOCUMENTS,
  • 00:01:16.240 --> 00:01:18.070
  • BOTH BIBLICAL
  • 00:01:18.070 --> 00:01:20.040
  • AND EXTRA-BIBLICAL LITERATURE
  • 00:01:20.040 --> 00:01:21.100
  • THAT SPEAK TO THIS THING.
  • 00:01:21.100 --> 00:01:22.150
  • IT'S THE MOST AUTHENTICATED FACT
  • 00:01:22.150 --> 00:01:25.100
  • IN HUMAN HISTORY
  • 00:01:25.100 --> 00:01:26.120
  • THAT A GUY NAMED JESUS LIVED,
  • 00:01:26.120 --> 00:01:28.110
  • WAS CRUCIFIED AND ROSE
  • 00:01:28.110 --> 00:01:30.220
  • FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:32.030
  • AND AUTHENTICATED
  • 00:01:32.030 --> 00:01:33.100
  • BY SO MANY WITNESSES.
  • 00:01:33.100 --> 00:01:34.140
  • ONLY A BIAS AGAINST
  • 00:01:34.140 --> 00:01:36.150
  • THIS KIND OF EVIDENCE,
  • 00:01:36.150 --> 00:01:37.210
  • THE KIND OF EVIDENCE
  • 00:01:37.210 --> 00:01:39.070
  • THAT'S ABSOLUTELY USED
  • 00:01:39.070 --> 00:01:39.250
  • IN OTHER NONRELIGIOUS LITERATURE
  • 00:01:42.270 --> 00:01:45.270
  • REFUSES OR REFUTES
  • 00:01:45.270 --> 00:01:47.290
  • THESE HISTORICAL FACTS.
  • 00:01:47.290 --> 00:01:50.010
  • SO WHAT HAPPENED IN THOSE DAYS,
  • 00:01:50.010 --> 00:01:52.280
  • AND WHAT FOLLOWED
  • 00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:53.220
  • AT THE BIRTH OF THE CHURCH,
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:54.290
  • AND THAT'S WHERE WE ARE,
  • 00:01:54.290 --> 00:01:55.200
  • KIND OF, ON THE CHURCH CALENDAR,
  • 00:01:55.200 --> 00:01:57.000
  • IF YOU WILL, LEADING UP
  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:01:58.060
  • TO ANOTHER FEAST
  • 00:01:59.100 --> 00:02:02.120
  • OF THE MAJOR SEVEN FEASTS
  • 00:02:02.120 --> 00:02:03.200
  • OF THE HEBREW PEOPLE, PENTECOST.
  • 00:02:05.000 --> 00:02:08.000
  • SO 50 DAYS, PENTIF,
  • 00:02:08.000 --> 00:02:09.200
  • 50 DAYS AFTER PASSOVER.
  • 00:02:09.200 --> 00:02:12.150
  • AND WE KNOW THAT JESUS,
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:13.200
  • FROM LAST SUNDAY WE FOCUSED,
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:15.020
  • HE WAS THE PASSOVER LAMB OF GOD,
  • 00:02:15.020 --> 00:02:17.040
  • TOOK AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:02:17.040 --> 00:02:18.190
  • SO HE DIED ON PASSOVER,
  • 00:02:18.190 --> 00:02:20.200
  • HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:02:20.200 --> 00:02:22.030
  • AND THE FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:02:22.030 --> 00:02:23.030
  • HE WAS THE FIRST FRUITS
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:23.220
  • OF THOSE AMONG THE DEAD,
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:25.050
  • THAT FEAST WAS FULFILLED.
  • 00:02:25.050 --> 00:02:27.070
  • IN FACT ALL SEVEN FEASTS
  • 00:02:27.070 --> 00:02:28.090
  • WILL BE FULFILLED IN CHRIST.
  • 00:02:28.090 --> 00:02:29.220
  • SO HERE COMES THE BIRTH
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:31.070
  • OF THE CHURCH, AND HERE
  • 00:02:31.070 --> 00:02:32.160
  • COMES PENTECOST COMING NEXT.
  • 00:02:32.160 --> 00:02:34.060
  • SO WE'RE GOING TO LAY
  • 00:02:34.060 --> 00:02:35.090
  • A FOUNDATION FOR WHAT IS
  • 00:02:35.090 --> 00:02:36.160
  • GOING ON DURING THIS TIME.
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:39.230
  • SO JAMES 4:8 SAYS,
  • 00:02:39.230 --> 00:02:41.080
  • IF YOU FOUND IT, THE FIRST PART
  • 00:02:41.080 --> 00:02:42.150
  • OF 4:8 SAYS, "COME CLOSE TO GOD
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:44.260
  • AND HE WILL COME CLOSE TO YOU."
  • 00:02:44.260 --> 00:02:47.240
  • COME CLOSE TO GOD
  • 00:02:47.240 --> 00:02:48.170
  • AND HE WILL COME CLOSE TO YOU.
  • 00:02:48.170 --> 00:02:50.140
  • THAT'S A PROMISE OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:02:50.140 --> 00:02:51.290
  • SO BY BEING HERE, SOMEHOW,
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:54.160
  • WHETHER SOMEBODY DRUG YOU HERE
  • 00:02:54.160 --> 00:02:56.010
  • OR YOU VOLUNTARILY CAME,
  • 00:02:56.010 --> 00:02:58.070
  • YOU'RE COMING CLOSE TO GOD.
  • 00:02:58.070 --> 00:03:00.250
  • IN THE SPANISH CONGREGATION
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:01.290
  • I SAID THE SAME THING,
  • 00:03:01.290 --> 00:03:02.270
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:03.210
  • THEY ALL SHOUTED AT ME, "AMEN,"
  • 00:03:03.210 --> 00:03:05.130
  • SO HOW ABOUT SAYING AMEN.
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:08.060
  • ALL RIGHT, I CAN'T LET THEM OUT
  • 00:03:08.060 --> 00:03:09.070
  • DO YOU GUYS.
  • 00:03:09.070 --> 00:03:10.000
  • COME ON.
  • 00:03:10.000 --> 00:03:10.190
  • I'M KIDDING.
  • 00:03:10.190 --> 00:03:11.180
  • JUST HAVING FUN.
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:14.020
  • WE'RE HERE BECAUSE WE ALL WANT
  • 00:03:14.020 --> 00:03:15.050
  • TO COME CLOSE TO GOD
  • 00:03:15.050 --> 00:03:16.170
  • SO WE'RE CLAIMING THE PROMISE
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:17.260
  • THAT HE IS GOING
  • 00:03:17.260 --> 00:03:18.160
  • TO COME CLOSE TO US.
  • 00:03:18.160 --> 00:03:21.000
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:03:21.000 --> 00:03:21.270
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:03:21.270 --> 00:03:22.220
  • WHEN ZACHARIAH 4:6,
  • 00:03:24.200 --> 00:03:27.200
  • "THE LORD SAYS
  • 00:03:27.200 --> 00:03:28.030
  • IT IS NOT BY MIGHT OR BY POWER,
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:32.020
  • BUT BY MY SPIRIT,
  • 00:03:32.020 --> 00:03:33.000
  • SAYS THE LORD."
  • 00:03:33.000 --> 00:03:35.130
  • I WAS MINISTERING SOME PASTORS
  • 00:03:35.130 --> 00:03:37.190
  • THIS WEEK AND WE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:03:37.190 --> 00:03:39.040
  • OUR BIG GATHERING
  • 00:03:39.040 --> 00:03:40.100
  • AND HOW WE'RE PREPARING,
  • 00:03:40.100 --> 00:03:41.130
  • LABORING, QUICKLY ORGANIZING
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:43.060
  • FOR NEXT YEAR
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:44.010
  • FOR THE BIG GATHERING
  • 00:03:44.010 --> 00:03:45.070
  • AT THE STADIUM, AND IT'S GOING
  • 00:03:45.070 --> 00:03:46.160
  • TO BE CAPACITY SEATING.
  • 00:03:46.160 --> 00:03:48.100
  • WE HAD 35.000 THIS PAST TIME;
  • 00:03:48.100 --> 00:03:50.240
  • WE'RE GOING TO 45.000
  • 00:03:50.240 --> 00:03:51.200
  • PLUS NEXT TIME,
  • 00:03:51.200 --> 00:03:52.210
  • AND WE MAY HAVE TO DO THE EXTRA
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:54.090
  • EXPENSE OF COVERING
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:03:55.190
  • THE FOOTBALL FIELD
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:56.080
  • SO WE CAN PUT CHAIRS OUT THERE
  • 00:03:56.080 --> 00:03:58.180
  • AND GO OVER 50.000.
  • 00:03:58.180 --> 00:04:01.010
  • I DON'T KNOW,
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:01.220
  • BUT WE'RE WORKING FEVERISHLY
  • 00:04:01.220 --> 00:04:02.140
  • ON IT ALREADY.
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:03.190
  • AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:05.010
  • WHY IT HAPPENED,
  • 00:04:05.010 --> 00:04:06.200
  • WHY IT WENT SO WELL,
  • 00:04:06.200 --> 00:04:07.240
  • AND I SAID IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:08.220
  • THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:11.270
  • MOVED ON PEOPLE, PASTORS GOT
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:14.060
  • OUT OF THEIR WAY
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:15.050
  • AND LET THE PEOPLE UNITE.
  • 00:04:15.050 --> 00:04:17.020
  • YEAH, THE PEOPLE WANT
  • 00:04:17.020 --> 00:04:18.190
  • TO COME TOGETHER.
  • 00:04:18.190 --> 00:04:19.120
  • THE BELIEVERS WANT
  • 00:04:19.120 --> 00:04:19.280
  • TO COME TOGETHER,
  • 00:04:19.280 --> 00:04:20.170
  • SO THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:22.020
  • AND I SAID IT ONLY HAPPENED
  • 00:04:22.020 --> 00:04:24.260
  • BECAUSE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:04:24.260 --> 00:04:26.180
  • WAS MOVING ON OUR CITY.
  • 00:04:26.180 --> 00:04:29.080
  • HOW MANY OF YOU WANT MORE
  • 00:04:29.080 --> 00:04:30.170
  • OF GOD'S SPIRIT TO MOVE
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:31.180
  • ON THIS CITY?
  • 00:04:31.180 --> 00:04:33.090
  • YEAH, WE THINK
  • 00:04:33.090 --> 00:04:33.220
  • OUR CITY'S SUPPOSED TO BE A CITY
  • 00:04:33.220 --> 00:04:34.230
  • OF REFUGE, A CITY OF BLESSING
  • 00:04:34.230 --> 00:04:37.040
  • WHERE EVERYBODY'S ACCEPTED
  • 00:04:37.040 --> 00:04:38.160
  • NO MATTER WHAT THEIR BACKGROUND,
  • 00:04:38.160 --> 00:04:39.120
  • WHAT THEY THINK, YOU KNOW
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:40.290
  • WE ALL HAVE PERMISSION
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:41.170
  • TO BE WRONG.
  • 00:04:41.170 --> 00:04:42.220
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:04:42.220 --> 00:04:43.260
  • THAT'S A JOKE,
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:44.230
  • YOU CAN LAUGH AT THAT.
  • 00:04:44.230 --> 00:04:46.170
  • IT'S OKAY.
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:47.210
  • EVERYBODY'S DIFFERENT
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:48.090
  • PERSPECTIVES, BUT IF YOU CLING
  • 00:04:48.090 --> 00:04:50.110
  • TO CHRIST AS GOD
  • 00:04:50.110 --> 00:04:52.230
  • WHO CAME IN THE FLESH
  • 00:04:52.230 --> 00:04:54.190
  • AND IT PUTS YOUR HOPE IN HIM,
  • 00:04:54.190 --> 00:04:56.140
  • THEN THERE'S SOME MEASURE
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:57.140
  • OF UNITY WE CANNOT ARRIVE
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:04:58.200
  • AT THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:04:58.200 --> 00:04:59.260
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS PRAYED FOR.
  • 00:04:59.260 --> 00:05:01.210
  • SO THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:05:01.210 --> 00:05:02.130
  • MOVING IN OUR CITY;
  • 00:05:02.130 --> 00:05:03.030
  • THAT'S WHAT WE WANT.
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:04.000
  • SO LET'S CONSIDER
  • 00:05:04.000 --> 00:05:04.220
  • WHAT BEGAN TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:04.220 --> 00:05:06.240
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST,
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:08.170
  • INTRODUCING THE MINISTRY
  • 00:05:08.170 --> 00:05:09.020
  • OF JESUS, SAID THAT HE WOULD
  • 00:05:09.110 --> 00:05:12.110
  • COME BAPTIZING
  • 00:05:12.110 --> 00:05:14.050
  • IN THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE.
  • 00:05:14.230 --> 00:05:17.230
  • SO WHATEVER THAT MEANS,
  • 00:05:17.230 --> 00:05:18.290
  • HOWEVER THAT IS INTERPRETED,
  • 00:05:18.290 --> 00:05:21.150
  • WE WANT IT.
  • 00:05:21.150 --> 00:05:24.020
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:24.150
  • EPHESIANS 1:13,
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:26.250
  • YOU SHOULD HAVE THIS,
  • 00:05:26.250 --> 00:05:29.100
  • "IN HIM YOU ALSO,
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:30.160
  • AFTER LISTENING
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:30.270
  • TO THE MESSAGE OF TRUTH,
  • 00:05:30.270 --> 00:05:32.070
  • THE GOSPEL OF YOUR SALVATION,
  • 00:05:32.070 --> 00:05:33.190
  • HAVING ALSO BELIEVED,
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:35.080
  • YOU WERE SEALED IN HIM
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:36.210
  • WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:05:36.210 --> 00:05:37.140
  • OF PROMISE."
  • 00:05:37.140 --> 00:05:39.060
  • SO IT SIMPLY SAYS
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:40.210
  • WHEN YOU ASKED JESUS
  • 00:05:40.210 --> 00:05:42.070
  • TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:05:42.070 --> 00:05:43.100
  • TO SAVE YOUR SOUL,
  • 00:05:43.100 --> 00:05:45.040
  • FOR THE FORGIVENESS
  • 00:05:45.040 --> 00:05:45.170
  • OF YOUR SINS, HE DOES SO
  • 00:05:45.170 --> 00:05:47.100
  • BY HIS SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:48.150
  • OF CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:05:48.200 --> 00:05:51.200
  • AND WE ARE SEALED
  • 00:05:51.200 --> 00:05:52.160
  • BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:54.060
  • AND I KNOW HISTORICALLY
  • 00:05:54.060 --> 00:05:56.060
  • AND THERE'S BEEN ALL KINDS
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:56.280
  • OF SPLINTERS AND FACTIONS
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:58.090
  • IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:05:59.080
  • AND YOU'RE INTERPRETING
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:00.050
  • WHAT IT MEANS,
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:00.210
  • THE BAPTISM OF
  • 00:06:00.210 --> 00:06:01.260
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT MEANS,
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:02.160
  • IT HAS TO MEAN THIS
  • 00:06:02.160 --> 00:06:03.140
  • OR IT HAS TO MEAN THAT,
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:04.280
  • I'M GOING TO SAY THIS TO YOU,
  • 00:06:04.280 --> 00:06:05.240
  • YOU WANT THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:06:05.240 --> 00:06:08.190
  • YOU ASKED CHRIST TO COME IN,
  • 00:06:08.190 --> 00:06:10.020
  • YOU HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:12.100
  • AND SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:06:12.100 --> 00:06:13.070
  • GETTING FILLED UP MORE AND MORE
  • 00:06:13.070 --> 00:06:14.250
  • AND MORE WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:15.250
  • AMEN?
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:17.000
  • OKAY, IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE
  • 00:06:17.000 --> 00:06:17.250
  • MORE COMPLICATED THAN THAT.
  • 00:06:17.250 --> 00:06:19.220
  • IN OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST LIFE,
  • 00:06:21.110 --> 00:06:24.110
  • WE WOULD TALK ABOUT
  • 00:06:24.110 --> 00:06:25.070
  • THE PREACHERS GETTING UP
  • 00:06:25.070 --> 00:06:27.020
  • TO PREACH, CATCHING FIRE,
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.190
  • AND THEY'D SAY HMMM,
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:29.240
  • THE UNCTION CAME ON HIM.
  • 00:06:29.240 --> 00:06:31.230
  • WELL, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:06:31.230 --> 00:06:33.190
  • WELL, THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:06:33.190 --> 00:06:34.160
  • BEGAN TO MOVE; THAT'S ALL,
  • 00:06:34.160 --> 00:06:37.110
  • A FRESH INFLUENCE.
  • 00:06:37.110 --> 00:06:38.110
  • MANY TIMES I'VE BEEN SICK,
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:40.010
  • AND I PRESSED THROUGH
  • 00:06:40.010 --> 00:06:41.120
  • AND I SHOW UP TO PREACH ANYWAY,
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:42.240
  • AND I GET UP TO PREACH
  • 00:06:42.240 --> 00:06:43.250
  • AND I FEEL GREAT.
  • 00:06:43.250 --> 00:06:46.020
  • PAIN, HEADACHE, SINUS,
  • 00:06:46.020 --> 00:06:47.010
  • EVERYTHING LEAVES.
  • 00:06:47.010 --> 00:06:48.190
  • I STOP PREACHING
  • 00:06:48.190 --> 00:06:49.280
  • AND I FEEL SICK AGAIN.
  • 00:06:49.280 --> 00:06:52.070
  • I GO HOME AND GO TO BED.
  • 00:06:52.070 --> 00:06:53.250
  • BUT WHILE I'M UP HERE
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:54.220
  • WITH YOU GUYS AND I'M PREACHING,
  • 00:06:54.220 --> 00:06:55.270
  • I FEEL AWESOME.
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:57.190
  • SO I WAS SAYING THAT
  • 00:06:57.190 --> 00:06:58.240
  • TO MY FAMILY DOCTOR,
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:06:59.290
  • AND HE SAID, "WELL,
  • 00:06:59.290 --> 00:07:01.000
  • SIMPLE ANSWER.
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:02.100
  • DON'T STOP PREACHING."
  • 00:07:02.250 --> 00:07:05.250
  • MY MOM WOULD AGREE,
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:07.010
  • BUT I DON'T THINK THE REST
  • 00:07:07.010 --> 00:07:07.250
  • OF MY CHURCH WOULD,
  • 00:07:07.250 --> 00:07:08.130
  • THEY WOULD WALK OUT ON ME
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:09.220
  • AFTER A TIME.
  • 00:07:09.220 --> 00:07:11.140
  • WE'RE SEALED BY THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:07:11.140 --> 00:07:13.190
  • AND THEN WE WANT TO GROW
  • 00:07:13.190 --> 00:07:14.140
  • IN THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:15.180
  • ASK THE LORD TO FILL US
  • 00:07:15.180 --> 00:07:16.170
  • AND KEEP FILLING US,
  • 00:07:16.170 --> 00:07:17.150
  • AND I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:18.080
  • THAT IS THE BIBLICAL MODEL.
  • 00:07:18.080 --> 00:07:20.020
  • THIS IS WHAT THE DISCIPLES
  • 00:07:20.020 --> 00:07:20.260
  • EXPERIENCED; GETTING MORE,
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:24.290
  • WANTING MORE.
  • 00:07:24.290 --> 00:07:26.020
  • COMING CLOSE TO GOD,
  • 00:07:26.020 --> 00:07:27.050
  • CLAIMING THE PROMISE;
  • 00:07:27.050 --> 00:07:28.070
  • HE'S GOING TO COME CLOSE TO US,
  • 00:07:28.070 --> 00:07:30.130
  • SO NOW WE GROW.
  • 00:07:30.130 --> 00:07:31.160
  • LET'S LOOK AT LUKE 11:13.
  • 00:07:32.110 --> 00:07:35.110
  • MANY OF YOU KNOW THIS,
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:37.000
  • BUT THE LORD SAID LAY
  • 00:07:37.000 --> 00:07:37.240
  • A NEW FOUNDATION,
  • 00:07:37.240 --> 00:07:38.250
  • SO WE'RE STRENGTHENING
  • 00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:40.200
  • THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:07:40.200 --> 00:07:41.220
  • FOR WHAT THE LORD
  • 00:07:41.220 --> 00:07:43.140
  • WANTS TO DO NEXT.
  • 00:07:43.140 --> 00:07:44.250
  • LET'S GRAB HOLD
  • 00:07:44.250 --> 00:07:45.110
  • OF THESE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:07:45.110 --> 00:07:46.270
  • JESUS TEACHING ON PRAYER,
  • 00:07:46.270 --> 00:07:48.240
  • AND THE DISCIPLES SAID,
  • 00:07:48.240 --> 00:07:50.030
  • "TEACH US TO PRAY
  • 00:07:50.030 --> 00:07:50.260
  • LIKE JOHN TAUGHT
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:51.140
  • HIS DISCIPLES TO PRAY."
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:52.290
  • SO HE GIVES THEM AN ILLUSTRATION
  • 00:07:52.290 --> 00:07:53.230
  • ABOUT THE FRIEND
  • 00:07:53.230 --> 00:07:54.190
  • COMING TO THEIR FRIEND
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:55.100
  • FOR BREAD AT NIGHT,
  • 00:07:55.100 --> 00:07:56.060
  • AND THEN HE SAYS, PERSISTENCE,
  • 00:07:56.060 --> 00:07:58.110
  • PERSISTENCE, PERSISTENCE.
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:00.200
  • ASK, ASK, ASK, AND KEEP ASKING
  • 00:08:00.200 --> 00:08:03.050
  • AS IF YOU'RE POUNDING
  • 00:08:03.050 --> 00:08:04.030
  • FOR MORE BREAD, I NEED BREAD,
  • 00:08:04.030 --> 00:08:05.210
  • DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:06.120
  • YOU DIDN'T GET BREAD;
  • 00:08:06.120 --> 00:08:06.260
  • KEEP ASKING, KEEP POUNDING.
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.150
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GET THE BREAD
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:09.080
  • BECAUSE YOU WON'T SHUT UP.
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:11.160
  • THAT'S THE LESSON
  • 00:08:11.160 --> 00:08:12.140
  • HE TEACHES THEM ABOUT PRAYER.
  • 00:08:12.140 --> 00:08:14.200
  • THEN HE SAYS YOU DADS KNOW
  • 00:08:14.200 --> 00:08:15.160
  • HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS
  • 00:08:15.160 --> 00:08:16.070
  • TO YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:17.020
  • IF THEY ASK FOR A FISH,
  • 00:08:17.020 --> 00:08:18.170
  • YOU WON'T GIVE THEM A SNAKE.
  • 00:08:18.170 --> 00:08:20.140
  • THEY ASK FOR BREAD,
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:21.130
  • YOU WON'T GIVE THEM A STONE.
  • 00:08:21.130 --> 00:08:24.130
  • AND HE SAYS, HOW MUCH MORE
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:25.240
  • WILL YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:08:25.240 --> 00:08:28.020
  • VERSE 13, "IF YOU THEN BEING
  • 00:08:28.020 --> 00:08:29.090
  • EVIL KNOW HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS
  • 00:08:29.090 --> 00:08:30.190
  • TO YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:31.210
  • HOW MUCH MORE SHALL
  • 00:08:31.210 --> 00:08:32.180
  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER GIVE
  • 00:08:32.180 --> 00:08:33.180
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THOSE
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:34.220
  • WHO ASK HIM?"
  • 00:08:34.220 --> 00:08:37.070
  • SO THIS IS A FOUNDATIONAL TRUTH.
  • 00:08:37.070 --> 00:08:38.190
  • LET US ASK FOR MORE
  • 00:08:38.190 --> 00:08:40.010
  • OF HIS PRESENCE IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:08:40.010 --> 00:08:42.220
  • I WAS IN MULTIPLE
  • 00:08:42.220 --> 00:08:44.040
  • HOSPITAL ROOMS THIS WEEK,
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:45.110
  • AND EACH TIME I GO IN
  • 00:08:45.110 --> 00:08:46.200
  • I'M ALWAYS ASKING
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:48.000
  • AND INVITING THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:08:48.000 --> 00:08:49.080
  • TO FLOOD THE ROOM.
  • 00:08:49.080 --> 00:08:51.000
  • COME IN.
  • 00:08:51.000 --> 00:08:53.100
  • ASKING GOD, "SEND YOUR ANGELS
  • 00:08:53.100 --> 00:08:54.160
  • TO SURROUND THESE IN THIS ROOM."
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:08:57.050
  • AND I CAN'T TELL YOU
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:57.260
  • HOW MANY TIMES, THERE'S FEAR,
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:08:59.180
  • THERE'S ANGST, THERE'S WORRY,
  • 00:09:00.090 --> 00:09:03.090
  • AND UNDERSTANDABLY SO,
  • 00:09:03.090 --> 00:09:05.040
  • BUT THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD
  • 00:09:05.040 --> 00:09:06.020
  • COMES IN AND THEN
  • 00:09:06.020 --> 00:09:07.080
  • THERE IS PEACE.
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:10.150
  • CALM.
  • 00:09:10.150 --> 00:09:12.260
  • FEAR LEAVES; WE BEGIN
  • 00:09:12.260 --> 00:09:15.050
  • TO FOCUS ON THE LORD.
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:16.250
  • HIS PRESENCE COMES IN
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:17.290
  • AND IT'S REAL.
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:20.000
  • NOW WE WANT TO WANT THAT
  • 00:09:20.000 --> 00:09:21.190
  • AND WALK IN THAT.
  • 00:09:21.190 --> 00:09:23.270
  • THE SCRIPTURE TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:09:23.270 --> 00:09:24.290
  • THE GENTLENESS OF WISDOM.
  • 00:09:25.060 --> 00:09:28.060
  • WALKING IN
  • 00:09:28.060 --> 00:09:28.180
  • THE GENTLENESS OF WISDOM.
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:30.140
  • WE WANT THAT.
  • 00:09:30.140 --> 00:09:31.170
  • WE WANT TO BE CARRIERS
  • 00:09:31.170 --> 00:09:33.130
  • OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:09:33.130 --> 00:09:34.230
  • WHEREVER WE ARE.
  • 00:09:34.230 --> 00:09:37.170
  • SO IF HE SAID WE CAN ASK
  • 00:09:37.170 --> 00:09:38.240
  • FOR MORE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:39.280
  • VERY BASIC QUESTION,
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:41.040
  • ARE WE ASKING
  • 00:09:41.040 --> 00:09:42.180
  • FOR MORE OF HIS PRESENCE?
  • 00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:44.130
  • DON'T YOU THINK
  • 00:09:44.130 --> 00:09:45.150
  • THAT WOULD BE AN OKAY THING
  • 00:09:45.150 --> 00:09:46.100
  • TO PRAY FOR?
  • 00:09:46.100 --> 00:09:47.200
  • I THINK SO.
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:48.210
  • SO, LORD, I WANT MORE
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:49.120
  • OF YOUR PRESENCE IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:51.040
  • SO THIS IS THE WAY
  • 00:09:51.040 --> 00:09:52.000
  • JESUS WRITES IT.
  • 00:09:52.000 --> 00:09:53.090
  • HOW MUCH MORE
  • 00:09:53.090 --> 00:09:54.030
  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER GIVE
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:55.070
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THOSE
  • 00:09:55.070 --> 00:09:57.070
  • WHO WILL ASK.
  • 00:09:57.070 --> 00:09:57.280
  • SO IF WE'RE NOT ASKING
  • 00:09:57.280 --> 00:09:59.000
  • FOR MORE, LET'S JUST REPENT.
  • 00:09:59.000 --> 00:10:01.180
  • SAY I'M SORRY, LORD,
  • 00:10:01.180 --> 00:10:02.130
  • I HAVEN'T BEEN ASKING FOR MORE.
  • 00:10:02.130 --> 00:10:03.210
  • I'M ASKING FOR MORE NOW,
  • 00:10:03.210 --> 00:10:04.160
  • EVERY DAY, ALL DAY.
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:05.280
  • AMEN?
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:07.080
  • MOST OF YOU SAID AMEN.
  • 00:10:07.080 --> 00:10:09.060
  • THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:11.110
  • WHY CAN WE DO THAT?
  • 00:10:11.110 --> 00:10:12.140
  • WE GET DEFENSIVE,
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:14.090
  • AND IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH
  • 00:10:14.090 --> 00:10:15.040
  • LOOK AT JOHN 3:34.
  • 00:10:15.040 --> 00:10:17.160
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS IN JOHN 3:34,
  • 00:10:17.160 --> 00:10:19.230
  • "FOR HE WHOM GOD HAS SENT SPEAKS
  • 00:10:19.230 --> 00:10:21.190
  • THE WORDS OF GOD, FOR HE GIVES
  • 00:10:21.190 --> 00:10:23.240
  • THE SPIRIT WITHOUT MEASURE."
  • 00:10:23.240 --> 00:10:26.010
  • I THINK WE CAN APPLY
  • 00:10:26.010 --> 00:10:26.250
  • THAT TO EVERY ONE OF US,
  • 00:10:26.250 --> 00:10:28.100
  • EVEN THOUGH THE LITERAL CONTEXT
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:29.270
  • IS HE'S TALKING ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:10:29.270 --> 00:10:31.210
  • HE WHOM GOD HAS SENT;
  • 00:10:31.210 --> 00:10:33.160
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT JESUS,
  • 00:10:33.160 --> 00:10:34.190
  • WHOM GOD HAD SENT.
  • 00:10:34.190 --> 00:10:35.280
  • "SPEAKS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:10:35.280 --> 00:10:36.230
  • FOR HE GIVES THE SPIRIT
  • 00:10:36.230 --> 00:10:38.010
  • WITHOUT MEASURE."
  • 00:10:38.040 --> 00:10:41.040
  • WE CAN ALL AGREE.
  • 00:10:41.040 --> 00:10:42.050
  • SOME MAY NOT AGREE,
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:43.110
  • AND SOME ARGUE,
  • 00:10:43.110 --> 00:10:44.080
  • AND I KNOW SOME SCHOLARS DO,
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:45.120
  • BUT THAT'S ONLY FOR JESUS.
  • 00:10:45.120 --> 00:10:47.000
  • DON'T START APPLYING IT
  • 00:10:47.000 --> 00:10:48.010
  • TO YOU AND EVERYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:49.180
  • I SAID, "OKAY, I THINK I CAN,"
  • 00:10:49.180 --> 00:10:52.120
  • BASED ON THAT TEXT,
  • 00:10:52.120 --> 00:10:53.270
  • BUT LET ME GIVE YOU ANOTHER ONE
  • 00:10:53.270 --> 00:10:55.240
  • THAT'S SUREFIRE PROOF
  • 00:10:55.240 --> 00:10:56.240
  • THAT WE CAN.
  • 00:10:56.240 --> 00:10:58.160
  • YOU LIKE THAT SUREFIRE
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:11:00.110
  • TEXT KIND OF TALKING, RIGHT?
  • 00:11:00.110 --> 00:11:02.000
  • EVERYBODY ELSE, LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:11:02.000 --> 00:11:02.290
  • IF YOU'RE NOT FROM TEXAS
  • 00:11:02.290 --> 00:11:03.220
  • DOESN'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:11:03.220 --> 00:11:04.120
  • SUREFIRE MEANS.
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:07.000
  • THIS IS WHERE I LEARNED
  • 00:11:07.000 --> 00:11:07.220
  • MY ENGLISH, IN TEXAS,
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:08.250
  • SO BLAME THE TEXANS.
  • 00:11:09.050 --> 00:11:12.050
  • JOHN 20:22, JESUS SHOWS UP,
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:16.070
  • LIKE LAST WEEK, EASTER,
  • 00:11:16.070 --> 00:11:17.290
  • RESURRECTION DAY,
  • 00:11:17.290 --> 00:11:19.240
  • "SO JESUS SAID TO THEM AGAIN,
  • 00:11:19.240 --> 00:11:20.240
  • 'PEACE BE WITH YOU,'"
  • 00:11:20.240 --> 00:11:21.280
  • THEY'RE IN THE UPPER ROOM,
  • 00:11:21.280 --> 00:11:22.260
  • "'AS THE FATHER HAS SENT ME,
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:25.190
  • I ALSO SEND YOU.'"
  • 00:11:25.240 --> 00:11:28.240
  • SO IN JOHN 3:34,
  • 00:11:28.240 --> 00:11:30.050
  • HE IS THE SENT ONE,
  • 00:11:30.050 --> 00:11:31.080
  • AND NOW IN THAT SAME WAY
  • 00:11:31.080 --> 00:11:32.230
  • HE WAS SENT,
  • 00:11:32.230 --> 00:11:33.280
  • HE SAYS WE ARE SENT.
  • 00:11:33.280 --> 00:11:36.270
  • SO WE ARE NOT SENT ONES
  • 00:11:36.270 --> 00:11:38.040
  • THE WAY JESUS WAS SENT,
  • 00:11:38.040 --> 00:11:39.220
  • SO THAT MEANS,
  • 00:11:39.220 --> 00:11:40.230
  • ACCORDING TO JOHN 3:34,
  • 00:11:40.230 --> 00:11:41.250
  • WE ABSOLUTELY CAN HAVE
  • 00:11:41.250 --> 00:11:43.100
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHOUT LIMIT,
  • 00:11:43.100 --> 00:11:45.180
  • WITHOUT RESTRICTION.
  • 00:11:45.180 --> 00:11:48.060
  • SO WE CAN HAVE UNLIMITED SUPPLY
  • 00:11:48.060 --> 00:11:50.120
  • OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:11:50.120 --> 00:11:51.080
  • IN OUR LIVES, WHY WOULD
  • 00:11:51.080 --> 00:11:52.130
  • WE NOT GO FOR IT, ESPECIALLY
  • 00:11:52.130 --> 00:11:54.170
  • WHEN THE LORD SAYS NOTHING
  • 00:11:54.170 --> 00:11:56.170
  • OF MY KINGDOM IN ADVANCEMENT
  • 00:11:56.170 --> 00:11:58.040
  • GETS DONE APART FROM MY SPIRIT.
  • 00:11:58.260 --> 00:12:01.280
  • IT'S NOT BY MIGHT,
  • 00:12:01.280 --> 00:12:02.250
  • IT'S NOT BY POWER,
  • 00:12:02.250 --> 00:12:03.200
  • IT'S NOT BY MY INTELLECT,
  • 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:05.040
  • IT'S NOT BY MY HANDSOMENESS.
  • 00:12:05.040 --> 00:12:08.010
  • THAT'S ANOTHER JOKE.
  • 00:12:08.010 --> 00:12:08.250
  • YOU CAN LAUGH AT ANY TIME.
  • 00:12:08.250 --> 00:12:10.290
  • IT'S NOT BY ANY OTHER SKILLSET,
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:12.050
  • IT'S NOT BY MY CULTURE.
  • 00:12:12.050 --> 00:12:14.190
  • PAUL SAID, "NO GOOD THING
  • 00:12:14.190 --> 00:12:15.140
  • DWELLS IN MY FLESH."
  • 00:12:15.140 --> 00:12:17.260
  • IT'S NOT BY ANY OTHER THING
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:19.170
  • BUT BY MY SPIRIT.
  • 00:12:19.170 --> 00:12:20.140
  • WHY WOULD I NOT WANT MORE
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:21.290
  • OF GOD'S PRESENCE IN MY LIFE?
  • 00:12:22.100 --> 00:12:25.100
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS
  • 00:12:25.100 --> 00:12:26.030
  • WE CAN ASK FOR IT,
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:27.070
  • AND THE SCRIPTURE SAYS
  • 00:12:27.070 --> 00:12:28.280
  • THAT WE CAN HAVE UNLIMITED
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:29.240
  • SUPPLY OF IT.
  • 00:12:29.240 --> 00:12:32.120
  • SO LET'S GET INTO
  • 00:12:32.120 --> 00:12:33.090
  • THAT LANE OF BELIEVING
  • 00:12:33.090 --> 00:12:34.290
  • FOR UNLIMITED SUPPLY
  • 00:12:34.290 --> 00:12:36.260
  • OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:12:36.260 --> 00:12:37.280
  • IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:12:37.280 --> 00:12:40.010
  • OKAY?
  • 00:12:40.010 --> 00:12:41.050
  • BECAUSE GOD IS LOVE.
  • 00:12:42.210 --> 00:12:45.210
  • SO WE SHOULD BE THE ABSOLUTE
  • 00:12:45.210 --> 00:12:47.240
  • MOST LOVING PEOPLE
  • 00:12:47.240 --> 00:12:50.090
  • ON THE PLANET.
  • 00:12:50.090 --> 00:12:53.020
  • SADLY, THE CHURCH DOESN'T
  • 00:12:53.020 --> 00:12:53.270
  • QUITE HAVE THAT REPUTATION.
  • 00:12:53.270 --> 00:12:55.240
  • WE DO A LOT OF GOOD THINGS,
  • 00:12:55.240 --> 00:12:58.130
  • THE CHURCH AT LARGE,
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:13:00.190
  • I MEAN WONDERFUL THINGS,
  • 00:13:00.190 --> 00:13:02.090
  • BUT AS INDIVIDUALS WE CAN ALWAYS
  • 00:13:02.090 --> 00:13:03.220
  • GET BETTER AT REPRESENTING
  • 00:13:03.220 --> 00:13:06.170
  • THE GOD WHO IS DESCRIBED
  • 00:13:06.170 --> 00:13:07.250
  • AS LOVE.
  • 00:13:08.280 --> 00:13:11.280
  • ACTS 2, WE SEE
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:13.130
  • THE DAY OF PENTECOST.
  • 00:13:13.130 --> 00:13:15.070
  • THEY WERE TOLD TO STAY TOGETHER,
  • 00:13:15.070 --> 00:13:16.270
  • AND THE RUSHING WIND
  • 00:13:16.270 --> 00:13:19.120
  • AND THE FLAMES OF FIRE,
  • 00:13:19.120 --> 00:13:21.050
  • TONGUES OF FIRE
  • 00:13:21.050 --> 00:13:21.180
  • RESTED OVER THEM,
  • 00:13:21.180 --> 00:13:22.190
  • AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:13:22.190 --> 00:13:23.130
  • FELL ON THEM;
  • 00:13:23.130 --> 00:13:24.120
  • THAT'S PENTECOST.
  • 00:13:24.120 --> 00:13:25.040
  • YOU KNOW THE TEXT.
  • 00:13:25.040 --> 00:13:26.090
  • ACTS 3:6, PETER AND SILAS
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:31.120
  • IN FRONT OF THE LAME BEGGAR,
  • 00:13:31.150 --> 00:13:34.150
  • AND HE LOOKS UP AT THEM,
  • 00:13:34.150 --> 00:13:36.080
  • AND PETER NOW IN BOLDNESS YET
  • 00:13:36.080 --> 00:13:38.170
  • FULL OF HUMILITY
  • 00:13:38.170 --> 00:13:39.150
  • BECAUSE HE'S BEEN BROKEN,
  • 00:13:39.150 --> 00:13:41.070
  • LOOKS AT HIM AND SAYS,
  • 00:13:41.070 --> 00:13:42.120
  • "LOOK AT ME.
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:44.120
  • GIVE ME YOUR ATTENTION."
  • 00:13:44.120 --> 00:13:45.170
  • THEN HE SAID, "SILVER AND GOLD
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:47.000
  • HAVE I NONE, BUT SUCH AS I HAVE,
  • 00:13:47.000 --> 00:13:48.220
  • I GIVE THEE.
  • 00:13:48.220 --> 00:13:50.190
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:52.060
  • OF NAZARETH, RISE UP AND WALK."
  • 00:13:52.060 --> 00:13:54.160
  • THAT'S ACTS 3:6.
  • 00:13:55.130 --> 00:13:58.130
  • INTERESTING THING
  • 00:13:58.130 --> 00:13:59.050
  • WHEN PETER SAYS THIS,
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:13:59.270
  • HE SAYS, LOOK, I DON'T HAVE
  • 00:13:59.270 --> 00:14:01.050
  • ANY SILVER AND GOLD.
  • 00:14:01.050 --> 00:14:03.010
  • I CAN'T TAKE YOU TO THE DOCTOR,
  • 00:14:03.010 --> 00:14:04.130
  • I CAN'T BUY YOU FOOD,
  • 00:14:04.130 --> 00:14:05.200
  • I CAN'T BUY YOU NEW CLOTHES,
  • 00:14:05.200 --> 00:14:07.120
  • BUT WHAT I DO HAVE,
  • 00:14:07.120 --> 00:14:08.140
  • I WILL GIVE TO YOU.
  • 00:14:08.140 --> 00:14:10.230
  • HE HAD THE POWER OF
  • 00:14:10.230 --> 00:14:11.130
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD FOR HEALING,
  • 00:14:11.130 --> 00:14:14.070
  • AND HE EXTENDED HIS HAND
  • 00:14:14.070 --> 00:14:15.170
  • AND HE LIFTED THE GUY UP.
  • 00:14:15.170 --> 00:14:18.070
  • HERE'S A COROLLARY;
  • 00:14:18.070 --> 00:14:21.070
  • WE CAN'T GIVE
  • 00:14:21.070 --> 00:14:22.090
  • WHAT WE DON'T HAVE.
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:24.240
  • HE DIDN'T HAVE SILVER AND GOLD.
  • 00:14:24.240 --> 00:14:27.170
  • IF WE DON'T HAVE THE POWER,
  • 00:14:27.170 --> 00:14:29.040
  • OVERWHELMING INCREASING POWER
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:31.070
  • OF GOD'S PRESENCE,
  • 00:14:31.070 --> 00:14:32.180
  • WE'RE NOT LIKELY TO SAY
  • 00:14:32.180 --> 00:14:34.240
  • BE HEALED IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:37.260
  • BUT IF WE DO, I DON'T SHRINK
  • 00:14:37.260 --> 00:14:40.100
  • BACK FROM PRAYING
  • 00:14:40.100 --> 00:14:41.050
  • AND SPEAKING HEALING.
  • 00:14:41.050 --> 00:14:42.250
  • I NEVER DO.
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:45.000
  • AGAIN, WE NEVER TRY TO PUT
  • 00:14:46.040 --> 00:14:49.040
  • SOMEBODY LIKE MY DAD
  • 00:14:49.040 --> 00:14:50.060
  • OUT OF BUSINESS,
  • 00:14:50.060 --> 00:14:50.230
  • HE'S A RETIRED SURGEON,
  • 00:14:50.230 --> 00:14:52.010
  • MOST OF YOU KNOW THAT,
  • 00:14:52.010 --> 00:14:53.210
  • BUT I LOVE SEEING SURGEONS'
  • 00:14:53.210 --> 00:14:54.220
  • SURGERIES CANCELLED,
  • 00:14:54.220 --> 00:14:57.140
  • AND WE'VE SEEN A BUNCH OF THEM
  • 00:14:57.140 --> 00:14:58.180
  • CANCELLED BECAUSE
  • 00:14:58.180 --> 00:15:00.070
  • OF SUPERNATURAL HEALING
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:01.200
  • THAT GOD DID FOR HIS GLORY,
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:05.010
  • FOR HIS KINGDOM IN ADVANCEMENT.
  • 00:15:05.280 --> 00:15:08.280
  • WE WANT THE POWER OF GOD
  • 00:15:08.280 --> 00:15:10.180
  • TO FLOW THROUGH US.
  • 00:15:10.180 --> 00:15:12.080
  • IT'S NOT UP TO US TO DECIDE
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:14.000
  • WHEN IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN,
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:15.170
  • WHEN IT'S NOT.
  • 00:15:15.170 --> 00:15:16.180
  • OUR JOB IS SIMPLY TO BE
  • 00:15:16.180 --> 00:15:17.130
  • OBEDIENT AND PRAY BELIEVING,
  • 00:15:17.130 --> 00:15:19.260
  • SPEAKING HEALING, AND ASKING
  • 00:15:19.260 --> 00:15:22.160
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:23.160
  • TO MANIFEST IN A SITUATION.
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:28.020
  • NOW, IF I DON'T HAVE
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:28.280
  • THAT CONFIDENCE,
  • 00:15:28.280 --> 00:15:30.070
  • IF I DON'T HAVE THIS
  • 00:15:30.070 --> 00:15:31.030
  • OVERWHELMING SENSE
  • 00:15:31.030 --> 00:15:32.010
  • OF GOD'S PRESENCE WITH ME
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:33.180
  • AND INCREASING ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:15:33.180 --> 00:15:35.190
  • I'M GOING TO BE MORE TIMID
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:37.280
  • TO DO THAT KIND OF THING.
  • 00:15:37.280 --> 00:15:40.060
  • BUT LET ME ASK YOU THIS,
  • 00:15:40.060 --> 00:15:41.070
  • WHAT'S BETTER, ME RUNNING
  • 00:15:41.070 --> 00:15:42.230
  • TO ALL THE HOSPITALS
  • 00:15:42.230 --> 00:15:43.220
  • ALL WEEK LONG,
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:44.100
  • OR ALL OF US GOING
  • 00:15:44.100 --> 00:15:45.130
  • AND PRAYING AND BLESSING
  • 00:15:45.130 --> 00:15:47.000
  • AND BELIEVING AND DECLARING
  • 00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:48.060
  • GOODNESS AT THE GROCERY STORE
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:49.290
  • AND AT WORK
  • 00:15:49.290 --> 00:15:50.120
  • AND AT THE CONVENIENCE STORE,
  • 00:15:50.120 --> 00:15:51.120
  • AT THE GAS STATION
  • 00:15:51.120 --> 00:15:52.180
  • AND EVERYWHERE ELSE
  • 00:15:52.180 --> 00:15:53.170
  • WHERE YOU ARE THE CARRIERS
  • 00:15:53.170 --> 00:15:54.240
  • OF GOD'S HOLY SPIRIT?
  • 00:15:54.240 --> 00:15:57.010
  • YEAH, MORE AND MORE PEOPLE,
  • 00:15:57.010 --> 00:15:58.240
  • THAT'S WHY WE'RE GOING TO FOCUS
  • 00:15:58.240 --> 00:16:00.160
  • ON THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:16:00.160 --> 00:16:02.180
  • BEING MANIFEST, BEING REAL,
  • 00:16:02.180 --> 00:16:05.020
  • BIBLICALLY, FOR THESE
  • 00:16:05.020 --> 00:16:06.260
  • NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS.
  • 00:16:06.260 --> 00:16:08.110
  • AND IF I'VE SCARED YOU OFF
  • 00:16:08.110 --> 00:16:09.040
  • ALREADY, THAT'S OKAY,
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:11.020
  • THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF CHURCHES
  • 00:16:11.020 --> 00:16:11.260
  • NEXT WEEK THAT WON'T TALK ABOUT
  • 00:16:11.260 --> 00:16:13.120
  • ANY OF THIS STUFF.
  • 00:16:13.120 --> 00:16:14.140
  • YOU CAN FIND ONE OF THOSE,
  • 00:16:14.140 --> 00:16:15.070
  • THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:16:15.070 --> 00:16:16.050
  • NO, COME BACK.
  • 00:16:16.050 --> 00:16:17.040
  • I'M KIDDING.
  • 00:16:17.040 --> 00:16:19.050
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:16:19.050 --> 00:16:20.100
  • CHAPTER 4:8,
  • 00:16:20.100 --> 00:16:22.000
  • SO THEY GET IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:23.190
  • THEY ARE BEFORE
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:24.240
  • THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS, AND
  • 00:16:24.240 --> 00:16:27.140
  • A VERY INTERESTING CONSTRUCTION
  • 00:16:27.140 --> 00:16:28.250
  • IN THE GREEK LANGUAGE
  • 00:16:28.250 --> 00:16:29.210
  • TAKES PLACE HERE.
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:34.200
  • PETER GETS UP TO SPEAK
  • 00:16:34.200 --> 00:16:35.240
  • AND HE MAKES
  • 00:16:35.240 --> 00:16:36.190
  • THIS POWERFUL STATEMENT
  • 00:16:36.190 --> 00:16:37.190
  • IN VERSE 12 ABOUT
  • 00:16:37.190 --> 00:16:39.110
  • THERE'S NO OTHER NAME AMONG MEN
  • 00:16:39.110 --> 00:16:41.010
  • UNDER HEAVEN ABOUT WHICH
  • 00:16:41.010 --> 00:16:41.290
  • WE MUST BE SAVED.
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:44.160
  • IT'S TALKING ABOUT JESUS,
  • 00:16:44.160 --> 00:16:45.250
  • BUT THE PASSAGE OPENS UP,
  • 00:16:45.250 --> 00:16:47.060
  • AND I DON'T HAVE TIME
  • 00:16:47.060 --> 00:16:47.270
  • TO GO THROUGH THE PASSAGE,
  • 00:16:47.270 --> 00:16:49.010
  • BUT NOTICE THIS VERSE, VERSE 8,
  • 00:16:49.010 --> 00:16:50.290
  • "THEN PETER,
  • 00:16:50.290 --> 00:16:51.180
  • FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:16:51.180 --> 00:16:53.000
  • SAID TO THEM, 'RULERS
  • 00:16:53.000 --> 00:16:54.090
  • AND ELDERS OF THE PEOPLE.'"
  • 00:16:54.090 --> 00:16:56.000
  • LITERALLY, THIS MEANS HAVING
  • 00:16:56.030 --> 00:16:59.030
  • JUST BEEN FILLED, PETER SPOKE.
  • 00:17:01.250 --> 00:17:04.250
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:05.060
  • A FRESH INFILLING CAME ON HIM,
  • 00:17:05.060 --> 00:17:07.120
  • AND HE SPOKE TRUTH
  • 00:17:07.120 --> 00:17:09.130
  • WITH AN ANOINTED MESSAGE
  • 00:17:09.130 --> 00:17:12.090
  • BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.
  • 00:17:12.090 --> 00:17:13.270
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:14.290
  • CAME WITH POWER
  • 00:17:14.290 --> 00:17:16.100
  • WHEN HE SPOKE THOSE WORDS.
  • 00:17:16.130 --> 00:17:19.130
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:17:19.130 --> 00:17:20.200
  • AND I'M GOING TO SHOW IT
  • 00:17:20.200 --> 00:17:21.140
  • TO YOU AGAIN.
  • 00:17:21.140 --> 00:17:22.250
  • LOOK AT VERSE 31.
  • 00:17:22.250 --> 00:17:24.080
  • THEY GET PERSECUTED.
  • 00:17:24.080 --> 00:17:25.120
  • THEY SAID DON'T YOU EVER SPEAK
  • 00:17:25.120 --> 00:17:26.230
  • IN THIS NAME AGAIN.
  • 00:17:26.230 --> 00:17:28.060
  • AND THEY GO OUT,
  • 00:17:28.060 --> 00:17:28.250
  • A BIG PRAYER TAKES PLACE,
  • 00:17:28.250 --> 00:17:30.110
  • THEN LATER IN THE CHAPTER
  • 00:17:30.110 --> 00:17:31.130
  • I'M GOING TO JUMP RIGHT
  • 00:17:31.130 --> 00:17:32.080
  • INTO THIS PRAYER,
  • 00:17:32.080 --> 00:17:33.070
  • PROBABLY PETER IS PRAYING,
  • 00:17:33.070 --> 00:17:34.270
  • AND HE SAYS, "AND WHEN
  • 00:17:36.280 --> 00:17:39.280
  • THEY HAD PRAYED, THE PLACE
  • 00:17:39.280 --> 00:17:41.080
  • WHERE THEY HAD GATHERED TOGETHER
  • 00:17:41.080 --> 00:17:42.100
  • WAS SHAKEN AND THEY WERE ALL
  • 00:17:42.100 --> 00:17:44.100
  • FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:45.160
  • AND BEGAN TO SPEAK THE WORD
  • 00:17:45.160 --> 00:17:46.110
  • OF GOD WITH BOLDNESS."
  • 00:17:46.110 --> 00:17:47.250
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:48.180
  • THEY WERE ALREADY PRETTY BOLD.
  • 00:17:48.180 --> 00:17:49.200
  • THEY WERE BOLDLY SAYING,
  • 00:17:49.200 --> 00:17:50.180
  • "LOOK AT ME.
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:51.200
  • GET UP."
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:53.170
  • HE BOLDLY SAYS
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:54.140
  • TO ALL THE EDUCATED --
  • 00:17:54.140 --> 00:17:56.130
  • IT IS GREAT TO BE EDUCATED.
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:17:57.190
  • I'M NOT KNOCKING EDUCATION
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:58.170
  • BY ANY MEANS.
  • 00:17:58.170 --> 00:18:00.140
  • I'VE GOT DIPLOMAS HANGING
  • 00:18:00.140 --> 00:18:01.120
  • ON THE WALL OVER THERE.
  • 00:18:01.120 --> 00:18:04.050
  • NOT KNOCKING EDUCATION;
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:05.040
  • DON'T GET ME WRONG.
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:06.010
  • BUT HE GETS IN FRONT
  • 00:18:06.010 --> 00:18:06.280
  • OF THE EDUCATED SCHOLARS,
  • 00:18:06.280 --> 00:18:08.220
  • THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS,
  • 00:18:08.220 --> 00:18:09.240
  • HAVING NO EDUCATION,
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:11.100
  • AND HE SPEAKS BOLDLY
  • 00:18:11.100 --> 00:18:12.280
  • TO THOSE GUYS.
  • 00:18:12.280 --> 00:18:14.260
  • SO PETER'S FULL
  • 00:18:14.260 --> 00:18:15.180
  • OF BOLDNESS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:18:15.180 --> 00:18:16.210
  • AND WHAT DOES HE DO IN
  • 00:18:16.210 --> 00:18:17.150
  • THE PREVIOUS VERSES?
  • 00:18:17.150 --> 00:18:18.140
  • HE ASKS FOR MORE BOLDNESS,
  • 00:18:18.190 --> 00:18:21.190
  • FOR MORE HEALINGS TO TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:24.080
  • AND GUESS WHAT HAPPENS?
  • 00:18:24.080 --> 00:18:25.290
  • HE PRAYED.
  • 00:18:25.290 --> 00:18:27.250
  • THE PLACE WHERE THEY
  • 00:18:27.250 --> 00:18:28.120
  • HAD GATHERED TOGETHER
  • 00:18:28.120 --> 00:18:29.000
  • WAS SHAKEN, AND THEY WERE
  • 00:18:29.000 --> 00:18:30.030
  • ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:31.020
  • AND BEGAN TO SPEAK THE WORD
  • 00:18:31.020 --> 00:18:31.260
  • OF GOD WITH BOLDNESS.
  • 00:18:31.260 --> 00:18:33.120
  • GOD ANSWERED THE PRAYER.
  • 00:18:33.120 --> 00:18:34.240
  • NOW GET A LOAD OF THIS,
  • 00:18:34.240 --> 00:18:36.120
  • IN JOHN 20 WHERE
  • 00:18:36.120 --> 00:18:37.050
  • WE READ EARLIER,
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:37.190
  • JESUS SAID JUST AS I WAS SENT,
  • 00:18:37.190 --> 00:18:40.190
  • I SEND YOU.
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:41.140
  • THEN HE SAID HE BREATHED ON THEM
  • 00:18:41.140 --> 00:18:43.130
  • AND SAID RECEIVE
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:44.100
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:18:44.100 --> 00:18:46.050
  • THEY'RE SEALED AS BELIEVERS.
  • 00:18:46.050 --> 00:18:47.220
  • THEY'RE SEALED
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:48.240
  • BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.
  • 00:18:48.240 --> 00:18:49.170
  • WE READ THAT IN EPHESIANS 2.
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:51.260
  • PENTECOST COMES.
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:52.290
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:18:52.290 --> 00:18:53.210
  • COMES ON THEM AGAIN.
  • 00:18:53.210 --> 00:18:55.190
  • HE GETS UP TO SPEAK
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:56.130
  • TO THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS,
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:18:58.150
  • FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:18:58.150 --> 00:18:59.090
  • ANOTHER INFILLING CAME.
  • 00:18:59.090 --> 00:19:02.110
  • NOW THEY'RE PRAYING,
  • 00:19:02.110 --> 00:19:03.080
  • ASKING FOR MORE BOLDNESS,
  • 00:19:03.080 --> 00:19:04.130
  • ANOTHER INFILLING CAME.
  • 00:19:04.130 --> 00:19:06.010
  • IT SAYS THEY ARE ALL FILLED
  • 00:19:06.010 --> 00:19:06.230
  • WITH THE SPIRIT RIGHT THEN,
  • 00:19:06.230 --> 00:19:08.150
  • IN VERSE 31,
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:09.210
  • WHAT I JUST READ TO YOU.
  • 00:19:09.210 --> 00:19:10.240
  • SO BASIC QUESTION IS:
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:12.120
  • HOW MANY TIMES IS PETER GOING
  • 00:19:12.120 --> 00:19:13.220
  • TO GET FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT?
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:16.290
  • AS MUCH AS HE WANTS.
  • 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:21.000
  • LUKE 11:13, "YOU FATHERS,
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:22.280
  • BEING EVIL, KNOW HOW TO GIVE
  • 00:19:22.280 --> 00:19:23.290
  • GOOD GIFTS TO YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:19:23.290 --> 00:19:25.070
  • HOW MUCH MORE WILL
  • 00:19:25.070 --> 00:19:27.030
  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER GIVE
  • 00:19:27.030 --> 00:19:28.280
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:19:28.280 --> 00:19:29.090
  • TO THOSE WHO ASK?"
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:32.010
  • PETER KEPT ASKING,
  • 00:19:32.010 --> 00:19:32.290
  • HE KEPT BELIEVING,
  • 00:19:32.290 --> 00:19:34.070
  • AND HE KEPT GETTING FILLED UP,
  • 00:19:34.070 --> 00:19:36.090
  • MORE INFILLINGS,
  • 00:19:36.090 --> 00:19:36.240
  • MORE INFILLINGS,
  • 00:19:36.240 --> 00:19:37.220
  • MORE INFILLINGS.
  • 00:19:37.220 --> 00:19:38.270
  • MORE ANOINTING'S BECAUSE
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:40.270
  • OF THE TASKS HE HAD BEFORE HIM.
  • 00:19:40.270 --> 00:19:43.190
  • THIS IS HIS EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:19:43.190 --> 00:19:45.190
  • AND IT CAN BE OURS.
  • 00:19:45.190 --> 00:19:46.290
  • IT CERTAINLY HAS BEEN MINE.
  • 00:19:46.290 --> 00:19:49.200
  • DID YOU KNOW
  • 00:19:49.200 --> 00:19:50.090
  • IT'S A SUPERNATURAL SIGN
  • 00:19:50.090 --> 00:19:51.150
  • AND A WONDER WHEN SOMEBODY
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:54.020
  • CUTS ME OFF IN TRAFFIC
  • 00:19:54.020 --> 00:19:56.030
  • AND I DON'T CUSS AT THEM?
  • 00:19:58.000 --> 00:20:01.000
  • YOU THINK I'M KIDDING.
  • 00:20:01.000 --> 00:20:01.290
  • THAT TAKES THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
  • 00:20:04.290 --> 00:20:07.290
  • MORE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:20:07.290 --> 00:20:09.130
  • TENDS TO CONTROL US, LEAD US.
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:12.180
  • WE NEED IT.
  • 00:20:12.180 --> 00:20:13.280
  • IT'S VERY, VERY PRACTICAL.
  • 00:20:13.280 --> 00:20:15.240
  • WE WANT MORE THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:20:15.240 --> 00:20:17.100
  • IN OUR LIVES, WE WANT MORE
  • 00:20:17.100 --> 00:20:18.020
  • EVERY DAY, ALL DAY.
  • 00:20:18.020 --> 00:20:19.080
  • I WANT TO BE LED BY THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:20:19.080 --> 00:20:20.260
  • I WANT TO LIVE BY THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:20:20.260 --> 00:20:22.080
  • SO WE'RE ASKING FOR MORE
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:23.190
  • AND MORE AND MORE SO THAT
  • 00:20:23.190 --> 00:20:25.060
  • I CAN BE THE BEST REPRESENTATION
  • 00:20:25.060 --> 00:20:27.070
  • OF JESUS ON THE EARTH
  • 00:20:27.070 --> 00:20:30.050
  • THAT I POSSIBLY CAN BE;
  • 00:20:30.050 --> 00:20:32.250
  • AT HOME, WITH MY CHILDREN,
  • 00:20:33.120 --> 00:20:36.120
  • WITH THE PEOPLE WHO I WORK WITH,
  • 00:20:36.120 --> 00:20:38.050
  • WITH THE PEOPLE
  • 00:20:38.050 --> 00:20:39.010
  • I ENCOUNTER ALL WEEK LONG.
  • 00:20:41.180 --> 00:20:44.180
  • COME CLOSE TO GOD
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:45.150
  • AND HE'LL COME CLOSE TO YOU,
  • 00:20:45.150 --> 00:20:46.280
  • JAMES 4:8.
  • 00:20:46.280 --> 00:20:48.150
  • THE QUESTION REMAINS:
  • 00:20:48.150 --> 00:20:50.100
  • HOW CLOSE DO WE WANT TO BE?
  • 00:20:51.020 --> 00:20:54.020
  • RIGHT NOW, WHERE YOU SIT,
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.060
  • WHERE I STAND, YOU ARE AS CLOSE
  • 00:20:55.060 --> 00:20:57.010
  • TO GOD AS YOU WANT TO BE.
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:02.270
  • IF YOU DON'T WANT
  • 00:21:02.270 --> 00:21:03.150
  • TO DRAW ANY CLOSER,
  • 00:21:03.150 --> 00:21:04.080
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO,
  • 00:21:04.080 --> 00:21:04.250
  • YOU CAN STAY RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:21:04.250 --> 00:21:06.070
  • YOU THINK YOU KNOW ENOUGH,
  • 00:21:06.070 --> 00:21:07.030
  • YOU'RE SATISFIED,
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:08.160
  • GOD'S NOT GOING TO PUSH YOU.
  • 00:21:08.160 --> 00:21:10.100
  • HE MAY ALLOW OPPORTUNITIES
  • 00:21:10.100 --> 00:21:11.120
  • IN YOUR LIFE TO CRY OUT
  • 00:21:11.120 --> 00:21:13.030
  • FOR MORE, BUT IF YOU WANT
  • 00:21:14.230 --> 00:21:17.230
  • TO DRAW CLOSER,
  • 00:21:17.230 --> 00:21:18.270
  • YOU CAN DRAW CLOSER.
  • 00:21:18.270 --> 00:21:20.240
  • WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:22.250
  • IS A REFLECTION
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:23.140
  • OF WHERE WE WANT TO BE.
  • 00:21:23.140 --> 00:21:26.050
  • I PRAY THAT THE ANOINTING
  • 00:21:26.050 --> 00:21:28.040
  • OF WANT TO COMES ON
  • 00:21:28.040 --> 00:21:29.210
  • ALL OVER YOU.
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:32.130
  • I PRAY THAT THE DESIRE

  • IT WILL HAPPEN.
  • 00:21:46.010 --> 00:21:47.000
  • NOT MUCH TIME.
  • 00:21:47.000 --> 00:21:47.200
  • LET ME SHARE JUST
  • 00:21:47.200 --> 00:21:48.090
  • A LITTLE BIT MORE.
  • 00:21:48.090 --> 00:21:50.060
  • ACTS 13, PAUL HAS GONE
  • 00:21:50.170 --> 00:21:53.170
  • ALL OVER THE ISLAND PREACHING,
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:58.210
  • THE ISLE OF PAPHOS,
  • 00:21:58.210 --> 00:21:59.250
  • THEY RUN INTO A FALSE PROPHET
  • 00:22:00.020 --> 00:22:03.020
  • NAMED SIMON BAR-JESUS,
  • 00:22:03.020 --> 00:22:05.180
  • AND THEY'RE IN FRONT
  • 00:22:05.180 --> 00:22:07.220
  • OF THE PROCONSUL SERGIUS PAULUS,
  • 00:22:08.010 --> 00:22:11.010
  • WHO IS REFERRED TO
  • 00:22:11.010 --> 00:22:11.280
  • AS A VERY INTELLIGENT MAN,
  • 00:22:11.280 --> 00:22:14.080
  • AND THIS FALSE GUY IS TRYING
  • 00:22:14.080 --> 00:22:16.210
  • TO HINDER, AND IT WAS OPPOSING,
  • 00:22:16.210 --> 00:22:19.100
  • TRYING TO KEEP PAUL AND BARNABAS
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:21.070
  • FROM TALKING TO THE PROCONSUL.
  • 00:22:21.070 --> 00:22:23.110
  • VERSE 9, "BUT SAUL,
  • 00:22:24.070 --> 00:22:27.070
  • WHO'S ALSO KNOWN AS PAUL,
  • 00:22:27.070 --> 00:22:28.140
  • FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT,"
  • 00:22:28.140 --> 00:22:30.080
  • SAME GREEK CONSTRUCTION
  • 00:22:30.080 --> 00:22:32.070
  • AS ACTS 4:8,
  • 00:22:32.240 --> 00:22:35.240
  • LITERALLY MEANS THAT PAUL,
  • 00:22:35.240 --> 00:22:37.220
  • HAVING JUST BEEN FILLED,
  • 00:22:37.220 --> 00:22:39.130
  • A FRESH INFILLING CAME ON HIM.
  • 00:22:40.190 --> 00:22:43.190
  • LOOK WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:22:43.220 --> 00:22:46.220
  • "FIXED HIS GAZE UPON HIM
  • 00:22:46.220 --> 00:22:47.280
  • AND SAID, 'YOU WHO ARE
  • 00:22:47.280 --> 00:22:48.270
  • FULL OF ALL DECEIT AND FRAUD,
  • 00:22:48.270 --> 00:22:50.090
  • YOU SON OF THE DEVIL,
  • 00:22:51.030 --> 00:22:54.030
  • YOU ENEMY OF ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:22:54.030 --> 00:22:55.190
  • WILL YOU NOT CEASE TO MAKE
  • 00:22:55.190 --> 00:22:56.260
  • CROOKED THE STRAIGHT WAYS
  • 00:22:56.260 --> 00:22:57.230
  • OF THE LORD?
  • 00:22:57.230 --> 00:22:59.230
  • NOW YOU WILL BE BLIND
  • 00:22:59.230 --> 00:23:01.110
  • AND NOT SEE THE SUN FOR A TIME.'
  • 00:23:01.110 --> 00:23:03.110
  • AND IMMEDIATELY A MIST
  • 00:23:03.110 --> 00:23:04.080
  • AND A DARKNESS FELL UPON HIM,
  • 00:23:04.080 --> 00:23:06.000
  • AND HE WENT ABOUT SEEKING THOSE
  • 00:23:06.000 --> 00:23:06.260
  • WHO WOULD LEAD HIM BY THE HAND.
  • 00:23:06.260 --> 00:23:08.170
  • THEN, SEEING THAT MIRACLE,
  • 00:23:08.170 --> 00:23:10.150
  • SEEING THIS GUY PAUL CALL DOWN
  • 00:23:10.160 --> 00:23:13.160
  • BLINDNESS ON
  • 00:23:13.160 --> 00:23:14.180
  • THIS OTHER CHARACTER,
  • 00:23:14.180 --> 00:23:16.030
  • WHAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:23:16.030 --> 00:23:16.260
  • THE PROCONSUL BELIEVED."
  • 00:23:16.260 --> 00:23:19.020
  • SEEING THAT POWER DISPLAYED,
  • 00:23:19.020 --> 00:23:20.240
  • OKAY PAUL, I THINK
  • 00:23:20.240 --> 00:23:21.170
  • I'M ON YOUR TEAM.
  • 00:23:21.190 --> 00:23:24.190
  • I WOULD TOO.
  • 00:23:24.190 --> 00:23:25.080
  • BUT HE BELIEVED.
  • 00:23:25.080 --> 00:23:25.270
  • HE JOINED BECAUSE OF THE POWER
  • 00:23:25.270 --> 00:23:28.020
  • OF GOD'S PRESENCE BEING THERE.
  • 00:23:28.190 --> 00:23:31.190
  • IT HAPPENED
  • 00:23:31.190 --> 00:23:32.290
  • IN FRONT OF HIS EYES,
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:34.030
  • AND HE BECAME A BELIEVER.
  • 00:23:34.030 --> 00:23:35.130
  • GOD WILL USE MIRACLES TO SEE
  • 00:23:35.130 --> 00:23:37.180
  • PEOPLE COME TO FAITH IN CHRIST.
  • 00:23:37.180 --> 00:23:39.040
  • IT SAYS HE WAS AMAZED
  • 00:23:39.040 --> 00:23:40.110
  • AT THE TEACHING OF THE LORD.
  • 00:23:40.110 --> 00:23:43.060
  • I'VE GOT MORE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:23:43.060 --> 00:23:44.160
  • TO SHARE; I'M GOING TO PICK IT
  • 00:23:44.160 --> 00:23:45.200
  • UP RIGHT HERE, I'M GOING
  • 00:23:45.200 --> 00:23:46.180
  • TO DRAW A LINE IN MY NOTES.
  • 00:23:48.120 --> 00:23:51.120
  • RIGHT HERE I'M GOING
  • 00:23:51.120 --> 00:23:52.020
  • TO PICK IT UP NEXT TIME
  • 00:23:52.020 --> 00:23:53.150
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO START TALKING
  • 00:23:53.150 --> 00:23:54.100
  • ABOUT INCREASING EXPERIENCES
  • 00:23:54.100 --> 00:23:56.010
  • WITH BELIEVERS,
  • 00:23:56.010 --> 00:23:58.020
  • AND HOW THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:23:58.020 --> 00:23:59.180
  • CAME ON PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:59.180 --> 00:24:01.250
  • SOMETIMES IT'S A LAYING
  • 00:24:01.250 --> 00:24:02.150
  • ON OF HANDS, AND OTHER TIMES
  • 00:24:02.150 --> 00:24:04.040
  • PETER'S PREACHING,
  • 00:24:04.040 --> 00:24:05.050
  • HE'S SHARING THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:24:05.050 --> 00:24:06.070
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN
  • 00:24:06.070 --> 00:24:06.260
  • THE SPIRIT FALLS.
  • 00:24:06.260 --> 00:24:07.120
  • HE DOESN'T PRAY FOR ANYBODY,
  • 00:24:07.120 --> 00:24:08.220
  • HE DOESN'T LAY HANDS ON ANYBODY,
  • 00:24:08.220 --> 00:24:10.050
  • THERE'S NO BIG PRODUCTION,
  • 00:24:10.050 --> 00:24:11.230
  • THERE'S NO NICE MUSIC,
  • 00:24:11.230 --> 00:24:13.120
  • THERE'S NO CLIMACTIC WORSHIP
  • 00:24:13.120 --> 00:24:15.130
  • AT THE HEAD OF A BIG CRESCENDO.
  • 00:24:15.130 --> 00:24:17.030
  • NO DRAMA.
  • 00:24:17.030 --> 00:24:18.210
  • HE'S JUST SHARING THE GOSPEL
  • 00:24:18.210 --> 00:24:20.030
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN
  • 00:24:20.030 --> 00:24:22.170
  • THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:23.120
  • RESTS OVER EVERYBODY
  • 00:24:23.120 --> 00:24:25.000
  • AND THEY'RE SAVED,
  • 00:24:25.000 --> 00:24:26.100
  • AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:24:26.100 --> 00:24:27.050
  • COMES WITH POWER OVER THEM.
  • 00:24:27.050 --> 00:24:29.190
  • DON'T PUT GOD IN A BOX.
  • 00:24:29.250 --> 00:24:32.250
  • DON'T DEMAND THERE'S SOME PROOF
  • 00:24:32.250 --> 00:24:33.270
  • OF THIS, THAT OR THE OTHER
  • 00:24:33.270 --> 00:24:34.290
  • IF THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS THERE.
  • 00:24:34.290 --> 00:24:37.140
  • LOOK, SOME PEOPLE GET HUNG UP
  • 00:24:37.140 --> 00:24:38.190
  • ON HAVING A BIG SECOND
  • 00:24:38.190 --> 00:24:40.070
  • CLIMACTIC EXPERIENCE;
  • 00:24:40.070 --> 00:24:42.050
  • THAT'S A LINE OF DEMARCATION.
  • 00:24:42.050 --> 00:24:43.140
  • WELL, SOME PEOPLE HAD
  • 00:24:43.140 --> 00:24:44.160
  • THAT IN THE BIBLE, OTHER'S NOT.
  • 00:24:44.210 --> 00:24:47.210
  • WHATEVER YOU CALL IT,
  • 00:24:47.210 --> 00:24:49.170
  • JUST GET IT.
  • 00:24:49.170 --> 00:24:52.090
  • JUST ASK FOR MORE
  • 00:24:52.090 --> 00:24:53.130
  • OF HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:24:53.130 --> 00:24:55.020
  • JUST LET JAMES 4:8 BE
  • 00:24:55.020 --> 00:24:56.170
  • THE LAUNCH PAD;
  • 00:24:56.170 --> 00:24:57.090

  • JUST KEEP ASKING
  • 00:25:00.130 --> 00:25:01.020
  • FOR MORE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:25:01.020 --> 00:25:03.100
  • KNOW THAT OUR CONFESSION,
  • 00:25:03.100 --> 00:25:04.190
  • IS IT NOT BY MIGHT OR BY POWER,
  • 00:25:04.190 --> 00:25:05.280
  • BUT BY MY SPIRIT,
  • 00:25:05.280 --> 00:25:06.240
  • SAYS THE LORD.
  • 00:25:06.240 --> 00:25:08.020
  • SO NOW THIS TIME AFTER EASTER,
  • 00:25:08.020 --> 00:25:09.230
  • AFTER THE RESURRECTION,
  • 00:25:09.230 --> 00:25:12.010

  • BY THE POWER OF GOD'S SPIRIT.
  • 00:25:18.190 --> 00:25:19.290
  • AND WE HAVE A NEW ERA
  • 00:25:19.290 --> 00:25:21.090
  • WHEN THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:25:21.090 --> 00:25:22.130
  • COMES TO LIVE IN HIS BELIEVERS
  • 00:25:22.130 --> 00:25:23.250
