  • - FOR THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:00.180 --> 00:00:03.180
  • OH, HE IS HERE
  • 00:00:03.180 --> 00:00:05.220
  • WITH REDEMPTION
  • 00:00:05.220 --> 00:00:06.280
  • FROM THE FALL
  • 00:00:06.280 --> 00:00:08.270
  • THAT WE MAY LIVE
  • 00:00:08.270 --> 00:00:11.270
  • FOR THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:12.110 --> 00:00:15.110
  • THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:15.120 --> 00:00:18.120
  • THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:18.140 --> 00:00:21.140
  • FOR JOINING US TODAY,
  • 00:00:28.030 --> 00:00:28.210
  • AS WE BEGIN A FOUR-PART SERIES
  • 00:00:28.210 --> 00:00:30.270
  • ON, "A HOUSE KNOWN
  • 00:00:30.270 --> 00:00:33.270
  • FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD".
  • 00:00:33.270 --> 00:00:35.010
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN MOSES PRAYED
  • 00:00:35.010 --> 00:00:36.170
  • AND WAS TALKING TO THE LORD,
  • 00:00:36.170 --> 00:00:38.030
  • HE SAID, "LORD,
  • 00:00:38.030 --> 00:00:39.080
  • IF YOU DON'T GO WITH US,
  • 00:00:39.080 --> 00:00:40.090
  • HOW WILL WE BE DISTINGUISHED
  • 00:00:40.090 --> 00:00:42.020
  • FROM ALL THE PEOPLES
  • 00:00:42.020 --> 00:00:43.140
  • OF THE EARTH?"
  • 00:00:43.140 --> 00:00:44.190
  • IT WAS THAT VITALLY IMPORTANT
  • 00:00:44.190 --> 00:00:46.190
  • TO MOSES THAT THE PRESENCE
  • 00:00:46.190 --> 00:00:49.040
  • OF THE LORD BE VERY REAL
  • 00:00:49.040 --> 00:00:50.150
  • AND TANGIBLE TO HIM.
  • 00:00:50.150 --> 00:00:53.010
  • HE'S A PERSONAL GOD.
  • 00:00:53.010 --> 00:00:54.210
  • HE WANTS TO BE KNOWN
  • 00:00:54.210 --> 00:00:55.200
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:00:55.200 --> 00:00:57.100
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:00:59.180 --> 00:01:00.120
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES THIS
  • 00:01:00.120 --> 00:01:01.120
  • MORNING, LET'S TURN TO THE
  • 00:01:01.120 --> 00:01:02.110
  • BOOK OF EXODUS, EXODUS 33.
  • 00:01:02.110 --> 00:01:03.280
  • EXODUS 33,
  • 00:01:03.280 --> 00:01:06.040
  • BEGINNING WITH EXODUS 33:12.
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:08.230
  • SO IF YOU'RE TAKING NOTES,
  • 00:01:08.230 --> 00:01:11.070
  • THE MESSAGE THE LORD GAVE ME
  • 00:01:11.070 --> 00:01:14.020
  • FOR THE TITLE OF THIS
  • 00:01:14.020 --> 00:01:14.290
  • MESSAGE IS, "A HOUSE KNOWN
  • 00:01:14.290 --> 00:01:16.250
  • FOR HIS PRESENCE".
  • 00:01:16.250 --> 00:01:19.040
  • "A HOUSE KNOWN
  • 00:01:19.040 --> 00:01:21.150
  • FOR HIS PRESENCE".
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:22.280
  • NOW, YOU KNOW, THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:01:22.280 --> 00:01:24.180
  • REFERS TO OUR BODY
  • 00:01:24.180 --> 00:01:26.010
  • AS A TABERNACLE, OR A TENT.
  • 00:01:26.180 --> 00:01:29.180
  • A TEMPORARY DWELLING PLACE.
  • 00:01:29.180 --> 00:01:31.190
  • A HOUSE.
  • 00:01:31.190 --> 00:01:32.220
  • OKAY?
  • 00:01:32.220 --> 00:01:34.070
  • SO WHEN I SAY A HOUSE KNOWN
  • 00:01:34.070 --> 00:01:35.200
  • FOR HIS PRESENCE,
  • 00:01:35.200 --> 00:01:36.220
  • I WANT OUR BODIES, OUR PERSONS,
  • 00:01:36.220 --> 00:01:38.120
  • TO BE KNOWN FOR HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:01:38.120 --> 00:01:40.030
  • I WANT OUR HOMES,
  • 00:01:40.030 --> 00:01:41.140
  • WHERE WE LIVE,
  • 00:01:41.140 --> 00:01:42.060
  • TO BE KNOWN FOR HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:01:42.060 --> 00:01:43.280
  • AND I WANT THIS SANCTUARY,
  • 00:01:43.280 --> 00:01:45.080
  • THIS LOCAL CHURCH,
  • 00:01:45.080 --> 00:01:46.100
  • TO BE KNOWN FOR HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:49.010
  • AMEN?
  • 00:01:49.010 --> 00:01:50.120
  • OKAY, LET'S TRY THAT
  • 00:01:50.120 --> 00:01:52.000
  • ONE MORE TIME.
  • 00:01:52.000 --> 00:01:52.190
  • AMEN?
  • 00:01:52.190 --> 00:01:53.170
  • YEAH.
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:54.170
  • HIS PRESENCE,
  • 00:01:54.170 --> 00:01:55.120
  • AND WE'LL GET INTO THAT.
  • 00:01:55.120 --> 00:01:56.080
  • OKAY?
  • 00:01:56.080 --> 00:01:56.290
  • GOD IS REAL, HE'S PERSONAL.
  • 00:01:56.290 --> 00:01:58.240
  • HE WANTS TO BE PRESENT
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:00.190
  • AND HE IS GOOD.
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:02.190
  • OKAY?
  • 00:02:02.190 --> 00:02:03.220
  • HE'S A PERSONAL GOD.
  • 00:02:03.220 --> 00:02:05.070
  • AND I KNOW SO MANY LISTENING
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:06.100
  • OR EVEN THINKING OR HEARING
  • 00:02:06.100 --> 00:02:07.130
  • THIS RIGHT NOW, DON'T KNOW
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:08.120
  • GOD AS A PERSONAL GOD.
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:10.190
  • OR THAT HE'S REALLY ALL THAT
  • 00:02:10.190 --> 00:02:12.050
  • GOOD TO YOU, OR YOU KNOW --
  • 00:02:12.050 --> 00:02:14.050
  • HAVE NOT KNOWN HIS GOODNESS,
  • 00:02:14.050 --> 00:02:15.250
  • BUT I'M HERE TO SAY TO YOU,
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:16.280
  • HE'S NOT FAR OFF AND DISTANT.
  • 00:02:16.280 --> 00:02:18.250
  • OKAY?
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:20.060
  • YOU KNOW, WE -- A LOT OF US
  • 00:02:20.060 --> 00:02:22.170
  • GET AN IMAGE OF WHO GOD IS
  • 00:02:22.170 --> 00:02:23.220
  • FROM AN EARTHLY DAD.
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:26.140
  • WELL, NOT EVERYBODY HAD
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:27.190
  • AN EARTHLY DAD THAT THEY KNEW,
  • 00:02:27.190 --> 00:02:29.180
  • OR NOT EVERYBODY HAD
  • 00:02:29.180 --> 00:02:30.160
  • THE BEST MODEL
  • 00:02:30.160 --> 00:02:31.050
  • IN AN EARTHLY DAD.
  • 00:02:31.050 --> 00:02:33.150
  • AND THAT TENDS TO SKEW
  • 00:02:33.150 --> 00:02:34.110
  • OFTEN TIMES OUR IMAGE
  • 00:02:34.110 --> 00:02:35.250
  • OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, OKAY?
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:38.230
  • BUT SO, THE LORD WILL GIVE US
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:40.020
  • GRACE TO KIND OF PUT THAT
  • 00:02:40.020 --> 00:02:41.220
  • ON THE SHELF, AND THEN GET
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:44.010
  • TO KNOW THE TRUTH
  • 00:02:44.010 --> 00:02:44.280
  • OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:02:44.280 --> 00:02:46.080
  • WHO'S A GOOD GOD.
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:48.000
  • HE'S A GOOD DAD.
  • 00:02:48.000 --> 00:02:49.270
  • HE'S A WONDERFUL DAD.
  • 00:02:49.270 --> 00:02:52.060
  • AND HE WANTS US
  • 00:02:52.060 --> 00:02:53.010
  • TO GET TO KNOW HIM THAT WAY,
  • 00:02:53.010 --> 00:02:54.020
  • AND AS BILL JOHNSON SAYS,
  • 00:02:54.020 --> 00:02:55.140
  • WE REALLY CAN'T EXAGGERATE
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:57.080
  • HIS GOODNESS.
  • 00:02:57.080 --> 00:02:59.090
  • HE'S GOOD.
  • 00:02:59.090 --> 00:03:00.180
  • JUST LOOK AT SOMEBODY AND SAY,
  • 00:03:00.180 --> 00:03:01.220
  • "GOD IS GOOD."
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:03.190
  • YOUR FATHER LOVES YOU.
  • 00:03:03.190 --> 00:03:05.280
  • SAY THAT.
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:08.050
  • SO THIS IS HIM,
  • 00:03:08.050 --> 00:03:09.250
  • AND THIS IS WHO WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:10.280
  • GET TO KNOW,
  • 00:03:10.280 --> 00:03:11.290
  • AND I THINK THIS MESSAGE
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:13.100
  • WILL HELP US MOVE THAT WAY
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:15.020
  • AND PROGRESS THAT WAY.
  • 00:03:15.020 --> 00:03:16.090
  • LET'S LOOK AT THIS TEXT,
  • 00:03:16.090 --> 00:03:17.140
  • BEGINNING WITH EXODUS 33:12.
  • 00:03:18.100 --> 00:03:21.100
  • "THEN MOSES SAID TO THE LORD,
  • 00:03:21.100 --> 00:03:23.080
  • 'SEE, YOU SAY TO ME,
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:25.240
  • 'BRING UP THIS PEOPLE.'
  • 00:03:25.240 --> 00:03:28.000
  • BUT YOU YOURSELF HAVE NOT LET
  • 00:03:28.000 --> 00:03:29.090
  • KNOW WHOM YOU WILL SEND WITH ME.
  • 00:03:29.090 --> 00:03:31.200
  • MOREOVER YOU HAVE SAID,
  • 00:03:31.200 --> 00:03:33.010
  • 'I HAVE KNOWN YOU BY NAME,
  • 00:03:33.010 --> 00:03:35.160
  • AND YOU HAVE ALSO GROUND FAVOR
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:36.260
  • IN MY SIGHT.'
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:38.180
  • NOW THEREFORE, I PRAY YOU,
  • 00:03:40.030 --> 00:03:43.030
  • IF I HAVE FOUND FAVOR
  • 00:03:43.030 --> 00:03:44.180
  • IN YOUR SIGHT, LET ME KNOW
  • 00:03:44.180 --> 00:03:45.110
  • YOUR WAYS, THAT I MAY KNOW YOU
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:47.200
  • SO THAT I MAY FIND FAVOR
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:48.140
  • IN YOUR SIGHT.
  • 00:03:48.140 --> 00:03:49.260
  • CONSIDER, TOO, THAT THIS
  • 00:03:49.260 --> 00:03:50.220
  • NATION IS YOUR PEOPLE.'
  • 00:03:50.220 --> 00:03:53.160
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:03:53.160 --> 00:03:54.200
  • 'MY PRESENCE SHALL GO WITH YOU,
  • 00:03:54.200 --> 00:03:57.190
  • AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST.'
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:02.080
  • THEN HE SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:04:02.080 --> 00:04:03.180
  • 'IF YOUR PRESENCE
  • 00:04:03.180 --> 00:04:05.100
  • DOES NOT GO WITH US,
  • 00:04:05.100 --> 00:04:06.190
  • DO NOT LEAD US UP FROM HERE.'"
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:08.090
  • NOW, PAUSE THIS --
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:09.220
  • PAUSE THERE FOR A SECOND.
  • 00:04:09.220 --> 00:04:10.290
  • MOSES SAID, "LOOK, IF YOU'RE
  • 00:04:10.290 --> 00:04:12.160
  • NOT GOING, I'M NOT GOING."
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:14.190
  • IF YOUR PRESENCE,
  • 00:04:14.190 --> 00:04:17.180
  • WHICH WAS SOMETHING
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:18.220
  • VERY, VERY REAL TO MOSES, OKAY?
  • 00:04:18.220 --> 00:04:21.100
  • IF YOUR MANIFEST, VERY REAL,
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:25.110
  • TANGIBLE, PRACTICAL, INVESTED,
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:28.250
  • INVOLVED PRESENCE
  • 00:04:28.250 --> 00:04:31.070
  • IS NOT GOING TO COME,
  • 00:04:31.070 --> 00:04:32.100
  • WE'RE NOT MOVING.
  • 00:04:32.100 --> 00:04:34.100
  • REMINDS ME OF A TRIP
  • 00:04:34.100 --> 00:04:35.170
  • I MADE IN THE EARLY 90S.
  • 00:04:35.170 --> 00:04:36.260
  • I WAS STUDYING,
  • 00:04:36.260 --> 00:04:38.070
  • I WAS WORKING AT THE UNIVERSITY
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:39.250
  • AND STUDYING,
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:41.000
  • AND PART OF THE GRADUATE STUDIES
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:42.240
  • AT THAT TIME, THAT PROGRAM
  • 00:04:42.240 --> 00:04:44.050
  • I WAS IN, WAS IN BUSINESS.
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:45.220
  • AND I WAS IN THE MBA STUDIES,
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:47.270
  • AND PART OF WHAT
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:48.240
  • THE REQUIREMENT WAS,
  • 00:04:48.240 --> 00:04:50.020
  • AN INTERNATIONAL COMPONENT.
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:52.140
  • TEN DAYS OF STUDYING
  • 00:04:52.140 --> 00:04:53.170
  • INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS, ABROAD,
  • 00:04:53.170 --> 00:04:55.070
  • AND THAT WAS PART OF
  • 00:04:55.070 --> 00:04:56.060
  • THE EDUCATION, THE TRAINING.
  • 00:04:56.060 --> 00:04:58.090
  • AND SO, AND OUR COHORT
  • 00:04:58.090 --> 00:05:00.130
  • WAS ABOUT 20 EXECUTIVES,
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:02.090
  • IT WAS THE EXECUTIVE
  • 00:05:02.090 --> 00:05:03.180
  • MBA PROGRAM,
  • 00:05:03.180 --> 00:05:05.060
  • NOT YOUNGER STUDENTS.
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:06.190
  • AND I WAS PART OF THAT,
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:08.110
  • AND I WAS BLESSED
  • 00:05:08.110 --> 00:05:09.060
  • TO BE PART OF IT.
  • 00:05:09.060 --> 00:05:10.070
  • AND SO, WE WERE ALL GOING,
  • 00:05:10.070 --> 00:05:11.140
  • AND IN THE AIRPORT,
  • 00:05:11.140 --> 00:05:13.130
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:05:13.130 --> 00:05:14.020
  • THERE WAS A PROBLEM
  • 00:05:14.020 --> 00:05:14.250
  • WITH MY FLIGHT.
  • 00:05:14.250 --> 00:05:17.090
  • AND EVERYBODY'S ON BOARD.
  • 00:05:17.090 --> 00:05:19.000
  • OF COURSE, THIS WAY --
  • 00:05:19.000 --> 00:05:20.050
  • PRE-9/11, SO WE'RE ALL THERE,
  • 00:05:20.050 --> 00:05:21.020
  • AND WE'RE TALKING.
  • 00:05:21.020 --> 00:05:22.170
  • AND ONE FELLOW STANDING WITH ME,
  • 00:05:22.170 --> 00:05:24.290
  • HE'S KIND OF WATCHING THAT
  • 00:05:24.290 --> 00:05:25.180
  • I'M NOT GETTING ON THE PLANE.
  • 00:05:25.180 --> 00:05:26.200
  • THERE'S A PROBLEM.
  • 00:05:26.200 --> 00:05:27.150
  • AND OF COURSE, I WAS PASTORING
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:28.150
  • ALSO AT THE TIME.
  • 00:05:28.150 --> 00:05:30.020
  • THIS IS ABOUT IN 1993 OR '94,
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:32.160
  • AND HE CAME UP TO ME,
  • 00:05:32.160 --> 00:05:34.160
  • AND HE WAS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:36.120
  • A PRETTY SUPERSTITIOUS GUY,
  • 00:05:36.120 --> 00:05:37.020
  • AND HE SAID, "WHAT'S WRONG?"
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:39.200
  • I SAID, "I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:05:39.200 --> 00:05:41.080
  • YOU MIGHT BE GOING WITHOUT ME."
  • 00:05:41.080 --> 00:05:43.080
  • AND THIS WAS HIS FIRST
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:44.140
  • INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT.
  • 00:05:44.140 --> 00:05:45.040
  • AND HE SAID, "OH, NO.
  • 00:05:45.040 --> 00:05:46.060
  • IF YOU'RE NOT ON THIS PLANE,
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:48.180
  • I'M NOT GETTING ON THIS PLANE."
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:50.180
  • AND I SAID, "EDDIE, RELAX.
  • 00:05:51.100 --> 00:05:54.100
  • IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY."
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:56.030
  • HE SAID, "UH-UH."
  • 00:05:56.030 --> 00:05:57.100
  • AND HE WENT JUST LIKE THAT.
  • 00:05:57.100 --> 00:05:59.030
  • I SAID, "OKAY, WELL, WAIT."
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:00.020
  • SAID, "WELL, I'M WAITING."
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:01.110
  • HE REFUSED TO GET ON THE PLANE
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:02.220
  • UNLESS I GOT ON THE PLANE.
  • 00:06:04.160 --> 00:06:07.160
  • IT WORKED OUT.
  • 00:06:07.160 --> 00:06:09.010
  • WE BOTH GOT ON THE PLANE.
  • 00:06:09.010 --> 00:06:10.050
  • HAD A GREAT TIME.
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:11.040
  • BUT HE WAS ADAMANT.
  • 00:06:11.040 --> 00:06:12.290
  • JUST WHATEVER IT WAS.
  • 00:06:12.290 --> 00:06:15.080
  • IF I WASN'T GOING,
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:16.210
  • HE WASN'T GOING.
  • 00:06:16.210 --> 00:06:17.280
  • OKAY.
  • 00:06:17.280 --> 00:06:19.110
  • I WAS JUST --
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:20.000
  • YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:20.290
  • NO.
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:21.150
  • HE WAS JUST THAT ADAMANT.
  • 00:06:21.150 --> 00:06:24.050
  • THAT'S WHAT THIS REMINDS ME OF,
  • 00:06:24.050 --> 00:06:25.130
  • OKAY?
  • 00:06:25.130 --> 00:06:27.030
  • AND I THINK HIS FEAR
  • 00:06:27.030 --> 00:06:28.100
  • WAS UNFOUNDED,
  • 00:06:28.100 --> 00:06:29.000
  • DON'T -- LET ME --
  • 00:06:29.000 --> 00:06:30.020

  • THAT THAN I'M TRYING TO SAY.
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:31.210
  • BUT I'M TRYING TO ILLUSTRATE.
  • 00:06:31.210 --> 00:06:32.290
  • MOSES IS SAYING,
  • 00:06:32.290 --> 00:06:33.280
  • "GOD, IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GO,

  • WE ARE NOT TAKING A STEP.
  • 00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:41.220
  • UNLESS YOUR PRESENCE,

  • WE'RE NOT MOVING."
  • 00:06:52.030 --> 00:06:55.030
  • THAT'S THE WAY
  • 00:06:55.030 --> 00:06:56.100

  • VERY EARLY ON IN MY YOUTH WAS,
  • 00:08:42.150 --> 00:08:44.240
  • "LORD, HELP ME TO BE

  • AND AWARE OF YOUR PRESENCE."
  • 00:08:50.020 --> 00:08:53.020
  • "THE LORD SAID TO MOSES,

  • 00:11:10.210 --> 00:11:11.270
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS,
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:12.270
  • "DO NOT NEGLECT TO ASSEMBLE
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:14.270
  • TOGETHER, ALL THE MORE
  • 00:11:14.270 --> 00:11:16.260
  • YOU SEE THE DAY APPROACHING."
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:18.030
  • US NOT ASSEMBLING TOGETHER
  • 00:11:18.030 --> 00:11:19.250
  • IS A MISTAKE.
  • 00:11:19.250 --> 00:11:20.150
  • WE MISS OUT, 'CAUSE WE'RE
  • 00:11:20.150 --> 00:11:21.090
  • SUPPOSED TO BE BEING BUILT UP.
  • 00:11:21.090 --> 00:11:23.220
  • WE BUILD EACH OTHER UP.
  • 00:11:23.220 --> 00:11:24.160
  • WE ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER.
  • 00:11:24.160 --> 00:11:26.040
  • AND THEN, IT'S IN THE CRUCIBLE
  • 00:11:26.040 --> 00:11:27.120
  • OF HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:11:27.120 --> 00:11:29.080
  • WHERE WE LEARN AND GROW,
  • 00:11:29.080 --> 00:11:30.240
  • WHERE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:31.250
  • THERE'S FRICTION SOMETIMES,
  • 00:11:31.250 --> 00:11:32.220
  • BUT WE LEARN TO FORGIVE
  • 00:11:32.220 --> 00:11:33.220
  • AND LEARN TO BE MORE HUMBLE
  • 00:11:33.220 --> 00:11:35.210
  • AND GENUINE AND AUTHENTIC
  • 00:11:35.210 --> 00:11:36.160
  • AND DIFFERING AND BUILDING UP
  • 00:11:36.160 --> 00:11:39.080
  • AND COMFORTING AND ENCOURAGING.
  • 00:11:39.080 --> 00:11:41.190
  • WE NEED TO BE TOGETHER.
  • 00:11:41.190 --> 00:11:43.140
  • WE'RE BEING BUILT UP,
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:44.260
  • SO WE'RE ON THE WAY,
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:46.130
  • WE'RE IN PROGRESS,
  • 00:11:46.130 --> 00:11:47.220
  • WE'RE BEING BUILT UP
  • 00:11:47.220 --> 00:11:49.090
  • INTO THAT PLACE WHERE GOD
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:50.140
  • IS MOST COMFORTABLE
  • 00:11:50.140 --> 00:11:51.190
  • MANIFESTING HIMSELF.
  • 00:11:51.190 --> 00:11:54.100
  • MAKING HIMSELF KNOWN.
  • 00:11:54.100 --> 00:11:56.060
  • JESUS SAID,
  • 00:11:56.060 --> 00:11:56.290
  • "IF YOU KEEP MY WORD,
  • 00:11:56.290 --> 00:11:59.070
  • MY FATHER AND I WILL
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.270
  • MAKE OUR HOME,
  • 00:12:00.270 --> 00:12:01.230
  • AND I WILL DISCLOSE MYSELF
  • 00:12:01.230 --> 00:12:02.260
  • TO YOU."
  • 00:12:02.260 --> 00:12:03.210
  • ONE OF MY FAVORITE PROMISES.
  • 00:12:03.210 --> 00:12:05.190
  • HE'LL MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN,
  • 00:12:05.190 --> 00:12:07.050
  • 'CAUSE IT'S HIM THAT BRINGS
  • 00:12:07.050 --> 00:12:08.280
  • THE POWER.
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:10.100
  • IT'S HIM, THE LORD JESUS,
  • 00:12:10.100 --> 00:12:12.150
  • THAT HAS ALL AUTHORITY.
  • 00:12:12.150 --> 00:12:13.130
  • IT'S HIM THAT PUSHES BACK
  • 00:12:13.130 --> 00:12:15.040
  • THE FORCES OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:12:15.040 --> 00:12:16.290
  • IT'S HIM THAT SETS PEOPLE FREE
  • 00:12:16.290 --> 00:12:19.030
  • FROM ADDICTIONS AND ANGER
  • 00:12:19.030 --> 00:12:20.200
  • AND LUSTS OF THE FLESH,
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:22.250
  • AND ALL THESE THINGS.
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:23.270
  • IT'S HIM THAT BREAKS
  • 00:12:23.270 --> 00:12:24.230
  • THAT STUFF RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:12:24.230 --> 00:12:26.070
  • SO THE MORE HIS PRESENCE
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:27.210
  • IS TANGIBLE AND REAL,
  • 00:12:27.210 --> 00:12:29.190
  • THE MORE FREE WE GET.
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:31.090
  • THE MORE JOY WE HAVE,
  • 00:12:31.090 --> 00:12:32.290
  • THE MORE REST WE ENTER INTO.
  • 00:12:32.290 --> 00:12:34.120
  • THE MORE GOOD WE CAN ENJOY,
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:36.010
  • AS WE ADVANCE HIS KINGDOM
  • 00:12:36.010 --> 00:12:38.010
  • FOR OTHERS TO WALK
  • 00:12:38.010 --> 00:12:39.140
  • IN THE SAME FREEDOM.
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:40.180
  • SOMEBODY SAY AMEN.
  • 00:12:40.180 --> 00:12:42.270
  • AMEN.
  • 00:12:42.270 --> 00:12:43.180
  • HEBREWS 11:6.
  • 00:12:43.180 --> 00:12:45.270
  • A FAVORITE VERSE, VERY QUICKLY.
  • 00:12:45.270 --> 00:12:48.170
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS:
  • 00:12:48.170 --> 00:12:49.210
  • "AND WITHOUT FAITH
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:50.140
  • IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM,
  • 00:12:50.140 --> 00:12:51.250
  • FOR HE WHO COMES TO GOD
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:53.170
  • MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS,"
  • 00:12:53.170 --> 00:12:55.150

  • "AND THAT HE'S A REWARDER

  • OF THOSE WHO SEEK HIM."
  • 00:12:57.110 --> 00:12:58.130
  • NOW, IN MY PERSONAL MINISTRY,
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:13:00.060
  • YOU KNOW, WE HAVE MINISTRY
  • 00:13:00.060 --> 00:13:02.030

  • AT ALL THESE DIFFERENT LEVELS

  • IS GOD EVEN REAL?

  • 00:16:02.260 --> 00:16:03.230
  • YEAH.
  • 00:16:03.230 --> 00:16:05.060
  • PRAYING FOR THOSE IN AUTHORITY.
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:07.160
  • THAT'S WHAT THE LORD SAYS
  • 00:16:07.160 --> 00:16:08.130
  • FOR US TO DO.
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:09.290
  • TO NOT PRAY FOR THOSE
  • 00:16:09.290 --> 00:16:11.030
  • IN AUTHORITY IS A MISTAKE.
  • 00:16:11.030 --> 00:16:12.270
  • FURTHER, IT'S ACTUALLY SIN.
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:14.030
  • WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE PRAYING
  • 00:16:14.030 --> 00:16:16.000
  • FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN AUTHORITY.
  • 00:16:16.000 --> 00:16:17.160
  • SO OF THE LORD JESUS GOVERNMENT,
  • 00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:20.070
  • IT SAYS THERE WILL BE NO END
  • 00:16:20.070 --> 00:16:21.030
  • TO IT INCREASING.
  • 00:16:21.030 --> 00:16:22.160
  • INCREASING.
  • 00:16:22.160 --> 00:16:23.280
  • SO I WANT THERE TO BE
  • 00:16:23.280 --> 00:16:25.040
  • CONTINUALLY INCREASING
  • 00:16:25.040 --> 00:16:26.170
  • GOVERNANCE OF THE LORD
  • 00:16:26.170 --> 00:16:29.140
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:29.140 --> 00:16:30.260
  • IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:16:30.260 --> 00:16:33.050
  • I WANT HIM TO BE INCREASINGLY
  • 00:16:33.050 --> 00:16:35.230
  • GOVERNING EVERY OUNCE
  • 00:16:35.230 --> 00:16:36.230
  • OF MY BEING.
  • 00:16:36.230 --> 00:16:39.050
  • NOTHING BEING HELD BACK
  • 00:16:39.050 --> 00:16:40.070
  • FROM HIM.
  • 00:16:40.070 --> 00:16:41.210
  • 'CAUSE THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:16:41.210 --> 00:16:42.100
  • SAYS SUBMIT, THEREFORE, TO GOD.
  • 00:16:42.100 --> 00:16:44.050
  • RESIST THE DEVIL.
  • 00:16:44.050 --> 00:16:45.080
  • HE'LL FLEE.
  • 00:16:45.080 --> 00:16:47.170
  • IN THOSE PLACES WHERE
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:49.150
  • WE'RE NOT SUBMITTED TO THE LORD,
  • 00:16:49.150 --> 00:16:51.280
  • IT'S HARD TO RESIST THE DEVIL,
  • 00:16:51.280 --> 00:16:53.210
  • SO HE DOESN'T FLEE.
  • 00:16:53.210 --> 00:16:55.120
  • BUT EVERY PLACE
  • 00:16:55.120 --> 00:16:56.280
  • THAT WE'VE SUBMITTED TO GOD,
  • 00:16:56.280 --> 00:16:58.250
  • JESUS STANDS THERE.
  • 00:16:59.150 --> 00:17:02.170
  • THE DEVIL TAKES A LOOK AT JESUS,
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:03.250
  • AND HE'S OUT.
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:05.020
  • HE DON'T WANT TO BE TORMENTED.
  • 00:17:05.020 --> 00:17:07.240
  • SO THERE'S MISTAKES
  • 00:17:07.240 --> 00:17:09.090
  • IN THE PAST, OKAY.
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:10.280
  • YOU'RE IN THE PAST.
  • 00:17:10.280 --> 00:17:12.250
  • SUBMIT THEM TO THE LORD.
  • 00:17:12.250 --> 00:17:14.070
  • THEN, WHEN YOU RESIST THE ENEMY,
  • 00:17:14.070 --> 00:17:16.130
  • HE HAS GOT TO GO.
  • 00:17:16.130 --> 00:17:18.140
  • HE'S GOT TO LEAVE.
  • 00:17:18.140 --> 00:17:19.200
  • AMEN?
  • 00:17:19.200 --> 00:17:20.260
  • THAT'S A GOOD WORD RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:17:20.260 --> 00:17:22.090
  • SO WE WANT HIS GOVERNMENT,
  • 00:17:22.090 --> 00:17:23.200
  • HIS ORDER, HIS REIGN,
  • 00:17:23.200 --> 00:17:26.060
  • HIS RULE, HIS KINGDOM,
  • 00:17:26.060 --> 00:17:28.050
  • HIS KINGLY SPHERE,
  • 00:17:28.050 --> 00:17:30.000
  • TO BE INCREASING.
  • 00:17:30.000 --> 00:17:32.100
  • AND THE SCRIPTURE SAYS
  • 00:17:32.100 --> 00:17:34.270
  • THERE WILL BE NO END TO
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:35.230
  • THE INCREASE OF HIS GOVERNMENT
  • 00:17:35.230 --> 00:17:36.240
  • OR OF HIS PEACE.
  • 00:17:36.240 --> 00:17:37.120
  • "ON THE THRONE OF DAVID
  • 00:17:37.120 --> 00:17:38.080
  • AND OVER HIS KINGDOM,
  • 00:17:38.080 --> 00:17:39.100
  • TO ESTABLISH IT," TO UPHOLD IT:
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:40.210
  • "WITH JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:17:40.210 --> 00:17:42.060
  • FROM THEN ON, AND FOREVER MORE.
  • 00:17:42.060 --> 00:17:43.260
  • THE ZEAL OF THE LORD OF HOSTS
  • 00:17:43.260 --> 00:17:45.120
  • WILL ACCOMPLISH THIS."
  • 00:17:45.120 --> 00:17:46.210
  • SO IN THE NAME OF JESUS,
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:47.220
  • I IMPART TO YOU A ZEAL FOR
  • 00:17:47.220 --> 00:17:49.180
  • THE LORD TO GOVERN YOUR HOUSE.
  • 00:17:49.180 --> 00:17:52.080
  • INCREASINGLY SO.
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:55.240
  • INCREASINGLY SO.
  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:17:56.180
  • PROVERBS 4:18.
  • 00:17:56.180 --> 00:17:58.070
  • "BUT THE PATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:18:00.130
  • IS LIKE THE LIGHT OF DAWN,
  • 00:18:00.130 --> 00:18:01.210
  • THAT SHINES BRIGHTER
  • 00:18:01.210 --> 00:18:03.220
  • AND BRIGHTER
  • 00:18:03.220 --> 00:18:04.160
  • UNTIL THE FULL DAY."
  • 00:18:04.160 --> 00:18:06.180
  • SO I DECLARE OVER US
  • 00:18:06.180 --> 00:18:08.160
  • THAT THE LIGHT ON US
  • 00:18:08.160 --> 00:18:09.100
  • IS SHINING BRIGHTER
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:10.180
  • AND BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER
  • 00:18:10.180 --> 00:18:11.270
  • TO THE FULLNESS OF FULL DAY.
  • 00:18:11.270 --> 00:18:13.050
  • AMEN?
  • 00:18:13.050 --> 00:18:14.000
  • I DECLARE IT'S INCREASING,
  • 00:18:14.000 --> 00:18:16.050
  • MORE AND MORE LIGHT.
  • 00:18:16.050 --> 00:18:17.250
  • MORE AND MORE OF HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:18:17.250 --> 00:18:19.290
  • YOU ARE A HOUSE KNOWN
  • 00:18:19.290 --> 00:18:21.210
  • FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:18:21.210 --> 00:18:23.170
  • SO WHEN YOU WALK INTO
  • 00:18:23.170 --> 00:18:25.140
  • THE GROCERY STORE,
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:26.170
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:18:26.170 --> 00:18:27.240
  • IS SHINING BRIGHTER
  • 00:18:27.240 --> 00:18:29.130
  • AND BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER.
  • 00:18:29.130 --> 00:18:31.080
  • THE INCREASE OF HIS GOVERNANCE
  • 00:18:31.080 --> 00:18:33.030
  • IS INCREASING AND INCREASING
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:34.180
  • AND INCREASING.
  • 00:18:34.180 --> 00:18:36.030
  • THE INCREASE OF PEACE
  • 00:18:36.030 --> 00:18:37.040
  • IN THAT ATMOSPHERE IS INCREASING
  • 00:18:37.040 --> 00:18:39.080
  • AND INCREASING AND INCREASING.
  • 00:18:39.080 --> 00:18:41.030
  • SO AS I WALKED INTO THE HEAD --
  • 00:18:41.030 --> 00:18:42.170
  • THE OFFICES OF A CERTAIN NATION
  • 00:18:43.070 --> 00:18:46.070
  • THIS PAST WEEK, AND I SENSED
  • 00:18:46.070 --> 00:18:48.080
  • THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:50.150
  • AND THE LORD GAVE ME
  • 00:18:50.150 --> 00:18:51.130
  • PROPHETIC WORD
  • 00:18:51.130 --> 00:18:52.150
  • FOR THAT HEAD OF STATE,
  • 00:18:52.150 --> 00:18:53.090
  • AND MINISTERED TO HIM,
  • 00:18:53.090 --> 00:18:54.170
  • I KNEW THAT I KNEW THAT
  • 00:18:54.170 --> 00:18:57.040
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD WAS ADVANCING
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:58.150
  • OVER THAT NATION.
  • 00:18:58.150 --> 00:19:00.200
  • AMEN?
  • 00:19:00.200 --> 00:19:02.010
  • YEAH.
  • 00:19:02.010 --> 00:19:02.180
  • IT'S REAL.
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:03.060
  • IT'S TANGIBLE.
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:04.060
  • IT'S PRACTICAL.
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:05.130
  • THIS IS NOT JUST A RELIGIOUS
  • 00:19:05.160 --> 00:19:08.160
  • VERBIAGE THAT SOUNDS NICE,
  • 00:19:08.160 --> 00:19:10.060
  • 'CAUSE WE'RE IN CHURCH.
  • 00:19:10.060 --> 00:19:12.120
  • WE'RE ADVANCING
  • 00:19:12.120 --> 00:19:13.280
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD,
  • 00:19:13.280 --> 00:19:14.260
  • IN THE KINGDOMS OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:16.060
  • AND WE DO THAT HERE, LOCALLY.
  • 00:19:16.060 --> 00:19:18.260
  • WE DO IT IN OUR CITY,
  • 00:19:18.260 --> 00:19:19.230
  • IN OUR STATE,
  • 00:19:19.230 --> 00:19:20.110
  • IN OUR NATION,
  • 00:19:20.110 --> 00:19:21.020
  • AND THE REMOTEST PART
  • 00:19:21.020 --> 00:19:21.240
  • OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:19:21.240 --> 00:19:22.140
  • THAT'S THE MANDATE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:19:22.140 --> 00:19:23.220
  • ACCORDING TO ACTS 1:8.
  • 00:19:23.220 --> 00:19:25.130
  • HE TELLS US THAT.
  • 00:19:25.130 --> 00:19:26.240
  • SO WE EXPECT HIS GOVERNANCE,
  • 00:19:26.240 --> 00:19:29.160
  • HIS PRESENCE, TO INCREASE MORE
  • 00:19:29.160 --> 00:19:31.240
  • AND MORE AND MORE.
  • 00:19:31.240 --> 00:19:34.210
  • IT'S GETTING BRIGHTER
  • 00:19:34.210 --> 00:19:36.230
  • AND BRIGHTER.
  • 00:19:36.230 --> 00:19:37.270
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT THE DEVIL
  • 00:19:37.270 --> 00:19:38.230
  • SAYS ABOUT THE DARKNESS.
  • 00:19:38.230 --> 00:19:39.290
  • HE CAN SCREAM ALL HE WANTS.
  • 00:19:39.290 --> 00:19:41.260
  • THE DEVIL IS A MOUSE
  • 00:19:41.260 --> 00:19:43.030
  • WITH A MICROPHONE.
  • 00:19:43.030 --> 00:19:44.290
  • AND I'M TELLING YOU
  • 00:19:44.290 --> 00:19:46.280
  • THAT THE DEVIL HAS NO AUTHORITY
  • 00:19:46.280 --> 00:19:48.250
  • COMPARED TO THE AUTHORITY
  • 00:19:48.250 --> 00:19:49.200
  • OF THE LORD JESUS.
  • 00:19:49.200 --> 00:19:51.290
  • JESUS SAID, "I HAVE
  • 00:19:51.290 --> 00:19:52.180
  • ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:53.130
  • AND EARTH."
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:54.130
  • THAT'S JESUS.
  • 00:19:54.130 --> 00:19:55.250
  • SO IF JESUS HAS ALL
  • 00:19:55.250 --> 00:19:56.250
  • OF THE AUTHORITY,
  • 00:19:56.250 --> 00:19:57.190
  • THE DEVIL HAS NONE.
  • 00:19:57.190 --> 00:19:58.100
  • SO DON'T GIVE HIM ANY.
  • 00:19:58.100 --> 00:19:59.110
  • LET GOD'S GOVERNANCE,
  • 00:20:00.040 --> 00:20:03.040
  • HIS PRESENCE INCREASE IN YOU,
  • 00:20:03.040 --> 00:20:05.030
  • SO THE ENEMY
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:06.040
  • HAS LESS AND LESS INFLUENCE.
  • 00:20:06.040 --> 00:20:08.080
  • WE CAN RESIST HIM,
  • 00:20:08.080 --> 00:20:09.010
  • AND HE HAS TO FLEE.
  • 00:20:09.010 --> 00:20:10.050
  • AMEN?
  • 00:20:10.050 --> 00:20:11.010
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:20:11.010 --> 00:20:12.050
  • SO NOW, AS WE LOOK FORWARD,
  • 00:20:12.050 --> 00:20:14.260
  • VERY QUICKLY, HAGGAI 2:9 SAYS:
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:17.220
  • "THE LATTER GLORY OF THIS HOUSE
  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:19.000
  • WILL BE GREATER
  • 00:20:19.000 --> 00:20:19.220
  • THAN THE FORMER."
  • 00:20:19.220 --> 00:20:21.020
  • OKAY? THE HOUSE OF GOD,
  • 00:20:21.020 --> 00:20:21.260
  • THE PEOPLE OF GOD.
  • 00:20:21.260 --> 00:20:23.030
  • THE LATTER GLORY OF THIS HOUSE.
  • 00:20:23.030 --> 00:20:24.270
  • REMEMBER?
  • 00:20:24.270 --> 00:20:25.290
  • TITLE OF THE MESSAGE IS,
  • 00:20:25.290 --> 00:20:27.050
  • "A HOUSE KNOWN
  • 00:20:27.050 --> 00:20:28.040
  • FOR HIS PRESENCE".
  • 00:20:28.040 --> 00:20:29.100
  • SO HE SAYS THAT GOD,
  • 00:20:29.100 --> 00:20:32.030
  • THE LORD OF ANGEL ARMIES,
  • 00:20:32.030 --> 00:20:33.080
  • IS DECLARING THAT THE GLORY
  • 00:20:33.080 --> 00:20:36.000
  • OF THE LATTER HOUSE
  • 00:20:36.000 --> 00:20:37.120
  • THAT WE'RE IN NOW IS GREATER
  • 00:20:37.120 --> 00:20:38.250
  • THAN THE FORMER.
  • 00:20:38.250 --> 00:20:40.240
  • THE SECOND COVENANT, THE GLORY,
  • 00:20:40.290 --> 00:20:43.290
  • RESIDENT OVER THE HOUSE
  • 00:20:43.290 --> 00:20:45.250
  • IS GREATER THAN THE FIRST.
  • 00:20:45.250 --> 00:20:48.110
  • REMEMBER, THE FIRST,
  • 00:20:48.110 --> 00:20:49.110
  • MOSES HAD TO GO SET UP A TENT
  • 00:20:49.110 --> 00:20:50.170
  • OUTSIDE OF WHERE THEY WERE,
  • 00:20:50.170 --> 00:20:52.030
  • THE TENT OF MEETING,
  • 00:20:52.030 --> 00:20:53.040
  • AND MEET WITH GOD OUT THERE.
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:54.100
  • AND THE GLORY WAS THERE,
  • 00:20:54.100 --> 00:20:56.190
  • AND EVERYBODY STOOD
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:20:57.160
  • AT THE DOORWAY OF THEIR TENTS,
  • 00:20:57.160 --> 00:20:58.190
  • WORSHIPING,
  • 00:20:58.190 --> 00:20:59.120
  • WHEN MOSES WENT IN THERE,
  • 00:20:59.120 --> 00:21:00.070
  • AND THEY WAITED,
  • 00:21:00.070 --> 00:21:00.270
  • AND THEY WERE WORSHIPING
  • 00:21:00.270 --> 00:21:01.210
  • 'TIL MOSES CAME OUT
  • 00:21:01.210 --> 00:21:02.170
  • AND SPOKE TO THEM.
  • 00:21:02.170 --> 00:21:03.230
  • AND HE HAD TO COVER HIMSELF,
  • 00:21:03.230 --> 00:21:05.080
  • OKAY?
  • 00:21:05.080 --> 00:21:06.140
  • SO LET'S LOOK AT A COUPLE
  • 00:21:06.140 --> 00:21:07.110
  • OF SCRIPTURES IN 2 CORINTHIANS.
  • 00:21:07.110 --> 00:21:08.200
  • FIRST, 2 CORINTHIANS 2:14.
  • 00:21:08.200 --> 00:21:11.000
  • REAL QUICKLY.
  • 00:21:11.000 --> 00:21:11.220
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 2:14.
  • 00:21:11.220 --> 00:21:14.060
  • "BUT THANKS BE TO GOD,
  • 00:21:14.060 --> 00:21:15.050
  • WHO ALWAYS LEADS US
  • 00:21:15.050 --> 00:21:16.060
  • IN HIS TRIUMPH IN CHRIST," --
  • 00:21:16.060 --> 00:21:17.160
  • SOMEBODY SAY, "TRIUMPH."
  • 00:21:17.160 --> 00:21:19.150
  • SAY, "VICTORY."
  • 00:21:19.150 --> 00:21:22.090
  • "IN CHRIST, AND MANIFESTS
  • 00:21:22.090 --> 00:21:23.220
  • THROUGH US THE SWEET AROMA
  • 00:21:23.220 --> 00:21:24.280
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:21:24.280 --> 00:21:26.180
  • OF HIM IN EVERY PLACE."
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:30.020
  • SO IF WE'RE CARRIERS
  • 00:21:30.020 --> 00:21:31.130
  • INCREASINGLY OF HIS PRESENCE,
  • 00:21:31.130 --> 00:21:32.240
  • THE AROMA OF HIS PRESENCE
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:34.040
  • AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH
  • 00:21:34.040 --> 00:21:35.290
  • OF HIM IS IN EVERY PLACE WE GO.
  • 00:21:35.290 --> 00:21:38.080
  • OKAY?
  • 00:21:38.080 --> 00:21:39.180
  • THAT'S NOW.
  • 00:21:39.180 --> 00:21:40.220
  • IN THE OLD COVENANT,
  • 00:21:40.220 --> 00:21:42.170
  • IN THE OLD PACT, THE SPIRIT
  • 00:21:42.180 --> 00:21:45.180
  • OF THE LORD WOULD REST AND LIFT.
  • 00:21:45.180 --> 00:21:47.180
  • REST AND LIFT.
  • 00:21:47.180 --> 00:21:48.250
  • AND THERE -- IT CAME OVER
  • 00:21:48.250 --> 00:21:49.280
  • THE PROPHET, AND THE PROPHET
  • 00:21:49.280 --> 00:21:50.290
  • BECAME A CRAZY PERSON.
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:53.270
  • NOT BAD CRAZY, BUT UNBELIEVABLE.
  • 00:21:53.270 --> 00:21:56.200
  • SPOKE THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:21:56.200 --> 00:21:58.070
  • AND FIRE CAME DOWN.
  • 00:21:58.070 --> 00:21:59.240
  • I MEAN, THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:21:59.240 --> 00:22:01.240
  • WOULD COME ON SOMEBODY.
  • 00:22:01.240 --> 00:22:04.150
  • NOW, THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD'S
  • 00:22:04.150 --> 00:22:05.160
  • ON US, PERMANENTLY.
  • 00:22:05.160 --> 00:22:07.030
  • WE JUST NEED TO ASK HIM
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:09.180
  • TO MANIFEST
  • 00:22:09.180 --> 00:22:11.000
  • AND INCREASE HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:22:11.000 --> 00:22:13.030
  • LET THAT AROMA BE TANGIBLE,
  • 00:22:13.180 --> 00:22:16.180
  • INVITE IT SO.
  • 00:22:16.180 --> 00:22:17.280
  • PURSUE IT.
  • 00:22:17.280 --> 00:22:18.290
  • HE REWARDS THOSE THAT PURSUE,
  • 00:22:18.290 --> 00:22:20.290
  • SEARCH FOR, SEEK HIM OUT.
  • 00:22:20.290 --> 00:22:23.010
  • HE -- THAT REWARD COME TO YOU,
  • 00:22:23.050 --> 00:22:26.050
  • ACCORDING TO HEBREWS 11:6.
  • 00:22:26.050 --> 00:22:28.060
  • NOW, 2 CORINTHIANS 3.
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:29.280
  • LET'S BEGIN WITH
  • 00:22:29.280 --> 00:22:32.140
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 3:8.
  • 00:22:32.140 --> 00:22:33.250
  • "HOW SHALL THE MINISTRY
  • 00:22:33.250 --> 00:22:35.010
  • OF THE SPIRIT FAIL TO BE EVEN
  • 00:22:35.010 --> 00:22:36.030
  • WITH MORE GLORY?"
  • 00:22:36.030 --> 00:22:37.090
  • I'M JUMPING RIGHT INTO
  • 00:22:37.090 --> 00:22:38.020
  • THE CONVERSATION.
  • 00:22:38.020 --> 00:22:38.260
  • MOSES, THERE WAS GLORY.
  • 00:22:38.260 --> 00:22:40.010
  • PHENOMENAL.
  • 00:22:40.010 --> 00:22:41.220
  • BUT NOW, WE'RE IN THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:22:41.220 --> 00:22:43.030
  • WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:22:43.030 --> 00:22:43.270
  • DOESN'T LIFT, IT RESTS,
  • 00:22:43.270 --> 00:22:45.280
  • AND WE'RE SEALED BY HIS SPIRIT.
  • 00:22:45.280 --> 00:22:48.040
  • OKAY?
  • 00:22:48.040 --> 00:22:49.100
  • "FOR IF THE MINISTRY
  • 00:22:49.100 --> 00:22:51.020
  • OF CONDEMNATION HAS GLORY,"
  • 00:22:51.020 --> 00:22:52.100
  • THAT'S THE LAW:
  • 00:22:52.100 --> 00:22:53.060
  • "MUCH MORE DOES THE MINISTRY
  • 00:22:53.060 --> 00:22:54.100
  • OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:22:54.100 --> 00:22:54.270
  • ABOUND IN GLORY.
  • 00:22:54.270 --> 00:22:56.050
  • FOR INDEED, WHAT HAD GLORY
  • 00:22:56.050 --> 00:22:57.130
  • IN THIS CASE HAS NO GLORY
  • 00:22:57.130 --> 00:22:58.180
  • ON ACCOUNT OF THE GLORY
  • 00:22:58.180 --> 00:22:59.190
  • THAT SURPASSES IT.
  • 00:22:59.190 --> 00:23:01.040
  • FOR IF THAT WHICH FADES AWAY
  • 00:23:01.040 --> 00:23:02.090
  • WAS WITH GLORY, MUCH MORE
  • 00:23:02.090 --> 00:23:04.070
  • THAT WHICH REMAINS," --
  • 00:23:04.070 --> 00:23:06.250
  • WE'RE SEALED, REMAINS IN GLORY.
  • 00:23:09.060 --> 00:23:12.060
  • "HAVING, THEREFORE,
  • 00:23:12.060 --> 00:23:12.280
  • SUCH A HOPE,"
  • 00:23:12.280 --> 00:23:13.260
  • BECAUSE WE KNOW THIS.
  • 00:23:13.260 --> 00:23:15.060
  • LOOK AT SOMEBODY AND SAY,
  • 00:23:15.060 --> 00:23:16.270
  • "I KNOW THIS."
  • 00:23:16.270 --> 00:23:18.120
  • NOW, LOOK AT SOMEBODY ELSE
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:20.140
  • AND SAY, "I REALLY KNOW THIS."
  • 00:23:20.140 --> 00:23:23.060
  • NOW, LOOK AT
  • 00:23:23.060 --> 00:23:24.040
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 3:12 AGAIN.
  • 00:23:24.040 --> 00:23:25.140
  • "HAVING, THEREFORE,
  • 00:23:25.140 --> 00:23:28.040
  • SUCH A HOPE,
  • 00:23:28.040 --> 00:23:28.270
  • WE USE GREAT BOLDNESS
  • 00:23:28.270 --> 00:23:30.020
  • IN OUR SPEECH."
  • 00:23:30.020 --> 00:23:32.040
  • THAT'S WHY I CAN WALK INTO
  • 00:23:32.040 --> 00:23:34.110
  • A SEAT OF GOVERNMENT
  • 00:23:34.110 --> 00:23:35.180
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS
  • 00:23:35.180 --> 00:23:36.240
  • AND DECLARE THE GOODNESS
  • 00:23:36.240 --> 00:23:38.110
  • AND PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:23:38.110 --> 00:23:39.110
  • DISPLACING THE FORCES OF EVIL.
  • 00:23:39.110 --> 00:23:41.190
  • YEAH, THAT'S A GOOD PLACE
  • 00:23:41.190 --> 00:23:43.280
  • TO CLAP TO THE LORD.
  • 00:23:43.280 --> 00:23:45.120
  • THIS IS REAL, IT'S TANGIBLE,
  • 00:23:49.160 --> 00:23:52.160
  • IT'S PRACTICAL.
  • 00:23:52.160 --> 00:23:53.100
  • IT'S EFFECTIVE.
  • 00:23:53.100 --> 00:23:56.100
  • AND GOD IS WINNING, AMEN?
  • 00:23:56.100 --> 00:23:58.240
  • LET'S KEEP READING.
  • 00:23:58.240 --> 00:24:01.200
  • "AND WERE NOT LIKE MOSES,
  • 00:24:03.190 --> 00:24:06.190
  • WHO USED TO PUT A VEIL
  • 00:24:06.190 --> 00:24:07.230
  • OVER HIS FACE SO THAT
  • 00:24:07.230 --> 00:24:09.010
  • THE SONS OF ISRAEL MIGHT NOT
  • 00:24:09.010 --> 00:24:10.050
  • LOOK INTENTLY AT THE END
  • 00:24:10.050 --> 00:24:11.020
  • OF WHAT WAS FADING AWAY."
  • 00:24:11.020 --> 00:24:11.270
  • LET ME STOP THERE.
  • 00:24:11.270 --> 00:24:13.220
  • SO THE LORD IS SAYING NOW
  • 00:24:15.070 --> 00:24:18.070
  • THAT EVERY ONE OF US IS CARRIERS
  • 00:24:19.010 --> 00:24:22.010
  • AND ARE A HOUSE KNOWN
  • 00:24:22.010 --> 00:24:23.080
  • FOR HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:24:23.080 --> 00:24:25.260
  • LET US ASK NOW THAT
  • 00:24:25.260 --> 00:24:28.130
  • THAT BE MANIFEST IN INCREASING
  • 00:24:28.130 --> 00:24:31.120
  • AND TANGIBLE WAYS.
  • 00:24:31.120 --> 00:24:33.140
  • AMEN?
  • 00:24:33.140 --> 00:24:34.040
  • THANKS FOR TUNING IN TODAY,
  • 00:24:39.180 --> 00:24:40.120
  • AS WE CONCLUDED
  • 00:24:40.120 --> 00:24:41.270
  • WITH THE LATTER GLORY
  • 00:24:41.270 --> 00:24:43.170
  • OF THE HOUSE,
  • 00:24:43.170 --> 00:24:45.210
  • BEING MORE GLORIOUS
  • 00:24:45.210 --> 00:24:47.040
  • THAN THE FORMER.
  • 00:24:47.040 --> 00:24:48.280
  • IT REMINDS ME OF ONE OF
  • 00:24:48.280 --> 00:24:49.260
  • MY FAVORITE PARABLES,
  • 00:24:49.260 --> 00:24:51.220
  • WHERE THE LORD JESUS
  • 00:24:51.220 --> 00:24:53.010
  • IS COMPARING
  • 00:24:53.010 --> 00:24:53.220
  • THE TARES AND THE WHEAT,
  • 00:24:53.220 --> 00:24:54.260
  • AND HE SAYS THAT THE END
  • 00:24:54.260 --> 00:24:56.070
  • OF THE AGE IS THE HARVEST.
  • 00:24:56.070 --> 00:24:58.220
  • THE HARVEST
  • 00:24:58.220 --> 00:25:00.040
  • IS THE END OF THE AGE,
  • 00:25:00.040 --> 00:25:01.100
  • AND IT'S VERY CLEAR
  • 00:25:01.100 --> 00:25:02.260
  • THAT DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN
  • 00:25:02.260 --> 00:25:04.210
  • THE WHEAT AND THE TARES
  • 00:25:04.210 --> 00:25:06.180
  • IS VERY CLEAR
  • 00:25:06.180 --> 00:25:07.120
  • WHEN BOTH ARE MATURE.
  • 00:25:07.120 --> 00:25:09.040
  • WELL, IT'S EASY TO SEE EVIL,
  • 00:25:09.040 --> 00:25:11.230
  • MATURING IF YOU WILL,
  • 00:25:11.230 --> 00:25:13.250
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD.
  • 00:25:13.250 --> 00:25:15.090
  • AND ESPECIALLY IN OUR COUNTRY,
  • 00:25:15.090 --> 00:25:17.230
  • AND WHETHER IT'S MURDER OR CRIME
  • 00:25:17.230 --> 00:25:20.180
  • OR EVIL ALL OVER THE PLACE,
  • 00:25:20.180 --> 00:25:22.210
  • JUST SEEMS TO BE
  • 00:25:22.210 --> 00:25:23.170
  • GETTING WORSE AND WORSE.
  • 00:25:23.170 --> 00:25:24.170
  • BUT I HAVE GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:25:24.170 --> 00:25:26.120
  • I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:25:26.120 --> 00:25:27.120
  • THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS
  • 00:25:27.120 --> 00:25:29.020
  • OF GOD'S KINGDOM
  • 00:25:29.020 --> 00:25:29.250
  • ARE COMING TO FULL MATURITY,
  • 00:25:29.250 --> 00:25:30.280
  • THAT THE BODY OF CHRIST
  • 00:25:30.280 --> 00:25:32.000
  • IS COMING TO FULL BLOOM,
  • 00:25:32.000 --> 00:25:33.160
  • AND GREAT EXPRESSION
  • 00:25:33.160 --> 00:25:36.100
  • OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:25:36.100 --> 00:25:38.230
  • JUST LIKE MOSES PRAYED.
  • 00:25:38.230 --> 00:25:40.120
  • "LORD, IF YOUR PRESENCE
  • 00:25:40.120 --> 00:25:41.170
  • DOESN'T GO WITH US,
  • 00:25:41.170 --> 00:25:43.080
  • WHAT WILL DIFFERENTIATE US,
  • 00:25:43.080 --> 00:25:45.100
  • WHAT WILL DISTINGUISH US
  • 00:25:45.100 --> 00:25:46.120
  • FROM THE REST OF THE PEOPLES
  • 00:25:46.120 --> 00:25:47.250
  • OF THE EARTH?"
  • 00:25:47.250 --> 00:25:49.000
  • IT IS, MY FRIENDS, IN FACT,
  • 00:25:49.000 --> 00:25:51.150
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:25:51.150 --> 00:25:53.000
  • IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:25:53.000 --> 00:25:55.130
  • WE ARE TO CARRY
  • 00:25:55.130 --> 00:25:56.200
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:25:56.200 --> 00:25:57.260
  • WHEREVER WE GO,
  • 00:25:57.260 --> 00:25:59.000
  • AND YOU CAN DO THAT,
  • 00:25:59.000 --> 00:26:00.110
  • AS YOU DRAW CLOSER TO THE LORD.
  • 00:26:00.110 --> 00:26:01.240
  • FOR HE WANTS TO HAVE
  • 00:26:01.240 --> 00:26:03.230
  • A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:26:03.230 --> 00:26:05.040
  • WITH YOU.
  • 00:26:05.040 --> 00:26:06.220
  • NOT FAR OFF, NOT IMPERSONAL,
  • 00:26:06.220 --> 00:26:09.000
  • BUT CLOSE TO GOD.
  • 00:26:09.000 --> 00:26:10.190
  • AND YOU BEGIN BY ASKING JESUS
  • 00:26:10.190 --> 00:26:12.050
  • TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:26:12.050 --> 00:26:13.140
  • TO FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS,
  • 00:26:13.140 --> 00:26:15.220
  • TO BECOME THE LORD
  • 00:26:15.220 --> 00:26:18.030
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:26:18.030 --> 00:26:18.290
  • AND IF YOU WOULD DO THAT,
  • 00:26:18.290 --> 00:26:19.240
  • JUST PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:26:19.240 --> 00:26:21.060
  • AND SAY, "LORD JESUS,
  • 00:26:21.060 --> 00:26:22.220
  • COME INTO MY LIFE.
  • 00:26:22.220 --> 00:26:25.120
  • FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS.
  • 00:26:25.120 --> 00:26:26.180
  • BE THE LORD OF MY LIFE,

  • RIGHT NOW."
  • 00:26:29.130 --> 00:26:30.140
  • AMEN.
  • 00:26:30.140 --> 00:26:32.000
